For starters, I have not worked on this science website in such a long time. However, since a lot of people are visiting it everyday I decided to do a shameless promo of my future life's work. Click either of my book covers below and it will take you to my other website where you can buy my books. It's book 1 & 2 of a fantasy trilogy; I hope to one day become a great fantasy/sci-fi novelist. SO, please support my work it'll mean a lot. Thank you! And I hope this website also helps all the people that come here.
This is my science blog; I will be posting all of my work onto this site. Under the Science Blab tab are four secondary tabs: Genetics, Microbiology, AP Biology, and Biotechnology. Each will hold my work for those specific topics. Also, the "DEFINE" button above leads to a YouTube video that defines life (watch it and love it). Without further ado, enjoy the science and have fun raising life!
Day 20! China is back at it again with the awesome inventions. If you have solar panels then you must know the struggle of trying to get energy on a cloudy or rainy day. However, Chinese scientist have created a new solution: by adding a one-atom thick layer of graphene (a substance known for its conductivity) to the panel. Comment here for what you think!
Day 19! There's nothing better than a good ole tuberculosis to wake you up in the morning. Well, not anymore since scientists have recently discovered a new way to inhibit the growth of the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB is a lung disease that statistically kills one person every 21 seconds (wait for it, wait for it, wait for it...someone just died). Comment here for what you think!
Day 18! In today's society, smoking has become a controversial issue, and many want to put a stop to it. However, this hasn't stopped people from doing it. Matter in fact, there are many pregnant women around the world who smoke, but they don't understand the effects that it could have on their future children. Smoking changes the epigenetics that the newborn will posses. Comment here for what you think!
Day 17! By this point in life we should all known about how, in ecosystems, all the abiotic and biotic factors work together to maintain a type of homeostatic environment. However, not all organisms are as important as the next. There are certain species, such as coral, that are considered "keystone species". Basically they are the base of a tower; take away the base and everything comes crashing down *TIMBER!*. Comment here for what you think!
Day 16! I love cats! For those who don't this post ain't for you. Click the button below to watch a video discussing how scientist used stem cells to cure cats with a mouth disease. So, I'm just waiting for that point in time when we can make cats live for ever. Cat people are the worst. Comment here for what you think!
Day 15! That moment when you figure out that you can transform hydrogen gas into a superconductive metallic substances is fantastic. The only thing more fantastic is the fact that we can transform it into diamonds. Basically there are 5 or 6 phases that they use to transform the hydrogen into a metal. Comment here for what you think!
Day 14! At some point in our lives we've looked up at the night sky and watched the stars glimmer as we tried to make out shapes (big dipper) that they form. Not many people take notice to space or the stars but those that do should know about a supernova. Recently they have discovered the remains of the youngest supernova. Basically, supernovas are caused by either the star having too much matter occupied in one space or when a star reaches the end of it's life. It's a blast! Comment here for what you think!
Day 13! We've all heard or read some pretty weird stuff. But never have you ever (not that I know of), read an article where it talks about pig hearts keeping baboons alive. That basically puts the extraordinary frosting on the weird cake. In other words, they've been able to transfer 5 successful hearts into baboons over the last 10 years of their research. One heart was able to keep a baboon alive for nearly 3 years. Comment here for what you think!
