DAILY SCIENCE: Les chercheurs francophones (trop) sereins par rapport au Brexit (Christian Du Brulle)

Let's no go overboard in praising only a few particular people.
As the first-ever picture of a black hole was unveiled this week, another image began making its way around the internet: a photo of a young scientist, clasping her hands over her face and reacting with glee to an image of an orange ring of light, circling a deep, dark abyss.

It was a photo too good not to share. The scientist, Katie Bouman, a postdoctoral fellow who contributed to the project, became an instant hero for women and girls in STEM, a welcome symbol in a world hungry for representation.
[...]
As Dr. Bouman herself was quick to point out, she was by no means solely responsible for the discovery, which was a result of a worldwide collaboration among scientists who worked together to create the image from a network of radio antennas.

The project, led by Shep Doeleman, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, was the work of more than 200 researchers. About 40 of them were women, according to Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative.

“There are women involved in every single step of this amazing project,” said Sara Issaoun, 24, a graduate student at Radboud University in the Netherlands who worked on the research. “As a woman in STEM myself, it’s good to have role models out there who young girls and young boys can look up to.”

But Ms. Issaoun warned against a “lone-wolf success” narrative. “The diversity and group effort and the breadth of our collaboration, I think, is worth celebration,” she said.

If you vote Republican, this is the kind of batshit lunacy you are endorsing. Anti-science woofuckery and willful ignorance. And while we are at it : NO, wind turbines do not cause cancer. That is more ignorance. The Republican Taliban wants to throw us all back into the Dark Ages of superstition.

Snails are beautifull !

My 9 years old son, YoYo, shot those pics of some big snails living in one of our fishtanks.
Also an Amano shrimp.
Nikon D60 and 18-55 mm lenz.

Nice shots YoYo !

QUOTE OF THE DAY:


If consciousness changes waves of possibility into particles, then how could consciousness be some emergent property of a material universe?

Study On 657,461 Children Finds No Link Between #Vaccines And #Autism



The largest #study so far into vaccines and autism has concluded there is no link, even in children who have a higher risk of developing the disorder. In fact, the researchers found that unvaccinated children were more likely to go on to be diagnosed with autism than those who received vaccines. [...]

Rachel Carson's Critics Called Her a Witch | JSTOR Daily

Carson created a framework for understanding something many had begun to believe intuitively: that industry-backed technology was moving faster than scientific understanding of its effects, to potentially disastrous results.

The blog is still on hiatus, but I did a fun interview with Jacque Summers recently about diversity and mental illness in STEM, as well as a bit about my own research and on growing up as a STEM kid!

Manly P. Hall: Atlantis and the Gods of Antiquity 1984
Not exactly a fan of Manly P. Hall, but wanted to stand up and start a slow clap at the end of this lecture and it's concluding monologue.
Bravo Mr. Hall, Bravo.
way to bring point, not to fact, but beyond.

Why does Quantum Physics Work if it is so wrong? CNPS Saturday Science Chat (Feb 23, 2019).... There is a gap between Copenhagen quantum mechanics' many problems and the fact that it works so well that it allows us to build things like supercomputers.
The puzzling part is why does it work so well anyway?
Six papers have been provided for this discussion and can be downloaded at:
http://franklinhu.com/DennisAllen.zip
These include papers on the electron from the Common Sense Journal and other textbooks.
