India’s first spacecraft to visit Mars has sent back one of the most incredible photos yet of the Red Planet. This image from the Mangalyaan probe was unveiled today by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). The planet’s southern ice cap is clearly visible while a huge dust storm blankets part of the northern region. The spacecraft used its Mars Color Camera to capture the amazing photo from a distance of 46,292 miles above the Red Planet. (Credit: Indian Space Research Organisation)

This is my child! Please ask your parents about the dino and the egg!!!

Vincent van Gogh (March 30, 1853 – July 29, 1890)

I haven’t got it yet, but I’m hunting it and fighting for it, I want something serious, something fresh—something with soul in it! Onward, onward.

such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.

It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.

I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.

Lyme disease surges north: Canada moves out of denial

Vett Lloyd saved the tick that latched onto her while she was gardening outside her home in New Brunswick, Canada, in 2011. A biologist who specialized in cancer genetics, she plucked the blood-sucking creature from her skin and sent it to the local public-health office to have it tested for the dangerous bacteria she knew it could carry.
But officials told her not to worry, Lloyd said. Lyme disease was exceedingly rare in the forested maritime province northeast of Maine. The tick was tossed untested.
The next year brought agony: fatigue, fevers that would come and go, aching joints, and, finally, trouble lifting her arms or walking. 
Lloyd indeed had Lyme disease, but as with many Canadians felled by the tick-borne illness, her diagnosis and treatment were delayed because of a system slow to acknowledge that public-health risks were changing as the climate warmed. In a concession that many patients say is overdue, Canadian authorities now admit that the most common vector-borne disease in the United States is an “emerging” threat north of the border.
"It’s living hell," Lloyd said of her experience with Lyme. "Every day you wake up with less of your body working….You are desperately sick, and then you have to fight for care."
Suffering longer
Lloyd is lucky. She knew she had been bitten by a tick and eventually insisted on treatment with antibiotics. After a “two-year journey”, she is well now.
Other Canadians have suffered longer, without a clue what was ailing them. Just east of New Brunswick, at a clinic in Halifax, Nova Scotia, rheumatologists over the past four years saw an unusual run of 17 children, ranging in age from 2 to 15, with suspected arthritis—four cases so severe the children had been to the emergency room, and two cases that were treated as septic. In only one case had doctors correctly diagnosed the underlying problem: Lyme disease.

GIFS from my last video - How To Find Water Bears

Take a look at #4. Embrace the fail. I think it’s the best part of the video.

We could have faked it. We could have pretended that we found Tardigrades on our first try. But where’s the fun in that?

Making mistakes is a natural part of science.

I’m glad that Ben, Valeria, and I didn’t find Water Bears during the shoot. So that face I’m making in #6 is a genuine face of celebration.

When do you science and other life stuff, don’t worry about mistakes. Learn from those mistakes and keep moving forward.

The ideal separation: dissolve your compound in an organic solvent, e.g.: ether, wash it with water what will get out everything from it, what is not needed, separate them, remove the solvent in vacuum and be happy with the pure products. 
In this case a polyaromatic compound was made is in the upper layer and the copper-amine complex what was used as an oxidizer is in the blue aqueous layer.
