Molina the science dog says: Susie was a chemist, but she is no more. What susie thought was H2O was H2SO4.
The Frequency Illusion occurs when something that you’ve just recently seen or heard seems to keep cropping up everywhere!
Molina the science dog! Why is the pH of YouTube very stable? It constantly buffers.
Nick Lane’s book, “The Vital Question”,tackles some of the toughest questions in biology today, such as the how, and in what environments, life originated, how the complex eukaryotic cell evolved, how the cellular mechanisms to generate energy echo back to the days before biology, and why sexual reproduction is the way it is based constraints placed on us by our energy generating systems -the mitochondria.
Axial Tilt is the Reason for the Seasons.
Gene drives are an exciting new technique that could allow genetic engineering at the population level. They have the potential of changing entire ecosystems with a engineered gene that will promote its own odds of multiplying throughout the population. A definite “selfish gene”.
If Professor Jeremy England is right, then far from The Second Law of Thermodynamics being a repressor of complexity, it may more accurately be described as an engine of the spontaneous production of organization, complex systems, and life itself.
If the second law of thermodynamics tells us that things tend towards increasing disorder, then how can complex systems, like living cells exist and evolve? We’ll see that these process are not forbidden, but must be accompained by an increase in disorder some where else.
CRISPR is like a gene editing device that is being used in the lab, but may have huge potential for gene therapy.
The Clumping Effect is a cognitive bias that demands that when three of more people on the trail pass, they all pass at the same time.
