Colloidal silver
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colloidal_silver


Colloidal silver is a colloid of silver particles in water. It has antimicrobial properties and was, in the past, used on external wounds and burns to prevent infection. Some alternative-health practitioners claim that it is a beneficial nutritional supplement. Others also claim that it is a powerful antibiotic[1] which is relatively safe for human consumption, though this is disputed because of the risk of argyria,[2] a permanent blue or gray skin condition which is otherwise benign. The intake of some silver products in large quantities over long periods of time has caused argyria in some people,[3][4][5][6][7] though at dosage levels generally considered normal, the risk for argyria is low.

Elion Gertrude B.


Gertrude Belle Elion (January 23, 1918 – February 21, 1999) was an American biochemist and pharmacologist, and a 1988 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Born in New York City to Jewish immigrant parents, she graduated from Hunter College in 1937 and New York University (M.Sc.) in 1941. Unable to obtain a graduate research position due to her gender, she worked as a lab assistant and a high school teacher, before becoming an assistant to George H. Hitchings at the Burroughs-Wellcome pharmaceutical company (now GlaxoSmithKline). She never obtained a formal Ph.D., but she was later awarded an honorary Ph.D from George Washington University.

Working alone as well as with Hitchings, Elion developed a multitude of new drugs, using innovative research methods that would later lead to the development of the AIDS drug AZT. Rather than relying on trial-and-error, Elion and Hitchings used the differences in biochemistry between normal human cells and pathogens (disease-causing agents) to design drugs that could kill or inhibit the reproduction of particular pathogens without harming the host cells.

Elion's inventions include:

    * 6-mercaptopurine (Purinethol), the first treatment for leukemia.[1]
    * Azathioprine (Imuran), the first immuno-suppressive agent, used for organ transplants.
    * Allopurinol (Zyloprim), for gout.
    * Pyrimethamine (Daraprim), for malaria.
    * Trimethoprim (Septra), for meningitis, septicemia, and bacterial infections of the urinary and respiratory tracts.
    * Acyclovir (Zovirax), for viral herpes.

In 1988 Elion received the Nobel Prize in Medicine, together with Hitchings and Sir James Black. Other awards include the National Medal of Science (1991) and the Lemelson-MIT Lifetime Achievement Award (1997). In 1991 she became the first woman to be inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Gertrude Elion died in North Carolina in 1999, aged 81. She had moved to the Research Triangle in 1970, and for a time served as a research professor at Duke University. She was unmarried.

Gout

Caused by the retention of uric acid in the body which then causes crystals of this substance in the joints, tendons, and causing inflammation of these tissues.

Thought to be hereditary. Eating purines, found in organ tissue (sweet meats) and asparagus and processed food such a sausage, adds a lot of purines to the diet.

Hawking Stephen


Stephen William Hawking, CH, CBE, FRS, FRSA (born 8 January 1942) is a British theoretical physicist. Hawking is the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. He is known for his contributions to the fields of cosmology and quantum gravity, especially in the context of black holes, and his popular works in which he discusses his own theories and cosmology in general. These include the runaway popular science bestseller A Brief History of Time, which stayed on the British Sunday Times bestseller list for a record-breaking 237 weeks.[1]

His key scientific works to date have included providing, with Roger Penrose, theorems regarding singularities in the framework of general relativity, and the theoretical prediction that black holes should emit radiation, which is today known as Hawking radiation, or sometimes as Bekenstein-Hawking radiation.[2] His scientific career spans more than 40 years and his books and public appearances have made him an academic celebrity and world-renowned theoretical physicist. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.[3] Hawking is disabled by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known in the United States as Lou Gehrig's Disease. The illness has progressed over the years and he is now almost completely paralysed.

James Cronin


James Watson Cronin (born September 29, 1931) is an American nuclear physicist.

He was born in Chicago, Illinois and attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Cronin and co-researcher Val Logsdon Fitch were awarded the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physics for a 1964 experiment that proved that certain subatomic reactions do not adhere to fundamental symmetry principles. Specifically, they proved, by examining the decay of kaons, that a reaction run in reverse does not merely retrace the path of the original reaction, which showed that the interactions of subatomic particles are not indifferent to time. Thus the phenomenon of CP violation was discovered.

At present, Jim Cronin is Professor Emeritus at the University of Chicago and a spokesperson for the Auger project. Prof. Cronin is a member of the Board of Sponsors of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists[1]

Luis Federico Leloir


(September 6, 1906 – December 2, 1987) was an Argentine doctor and biochemist who received the 1970 Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Along with Mario Molina, he is one of the first two Hispanic scientists to ever receive the award. Although born in France, Leloir received the majority of his education at the University of Buenos Aires and was director of the private research group Fundación Instituto Campomar until his death in 1987. Although his laboratories were often plagued by lack of financial support and second-rate equipment, his research into sugar nucleotides, carbohydrate metabolism, and renal hypertension has garnered international attention and fame and has led to significant progress in understanding, diagnosing and treating the congenital disease galactosemia.

MAD  (Magnetic Anomaly Detector)





Quote
A magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) is an instrument used to detect minute variations in the Earth's magnetic field. The term refers specifically to magnetometers used either by military forces to detect submarines (a mass of ferromagnetic material creates a detectable disturbance in the magnetic field) or to a geomagnetic survey instrument used to search for minerals by the disturbance of the normal earth-field.

Nature








Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural world, or the environment, physical universe, material world or material universe. "Nature" refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. The term generally does not include manufactured objects and human interaction unless qualified in ways such as, e.g., "human nature" or "the whole of nature". Nature is also generally distinguished from the supernatural. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the galactic.

The word "nature" is derived from the Latin word natura, or "the course of things, natural character." Natura was a Latin translation of the Greek word physis (φύσις), which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world develop of their own accord. This is shown in the first written use of the word φύσις, in connection with a plant. The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several expansions of the original notion; it began with certain core applications of the word φύσις by pre-Socratic philosophers, and has steadily gained currency ever since. This usage was confirmed during the advent of modern scientific method in the last several centuries.

Within the various uses of the word today, "nature" may refer to the general realm of various types of living plants and animals, and in some cases to the processes associated with inanimate objects – the way that particular types of things exist and change of their own accord, such as the weather and geology of the Earth, and the matter and energy of which all these things are composed. It is often taken to mean the "natural environment" or wilderness – wild animals, rocks, forest, beaches, and in general those things that have not been substantially altered by human intervention, or which persist despite human intervention. This more traditional concept of natural things which can still be found today implies a distinction between the natural and the artificial, with the latter being understood as that which has been brought into being by a human or human-like consciousness or mind.

Otto pilot





Airplane! is an American comedy film, first released on 27 June 1980, produced, directed, and written by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker. Airplane! starred Robert Hays, Julie Hagerty, Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Lorna Patterson. For release in Australia and the Philippines, Airplane! was re-titled as Flying High.

Airplane! is a spoof of the disaster movie genre. It is unique among film parodies in that Airplane! (originally designed for a 20-minute sketch) is a virtual remake of the 1957 Canadian airplane disaster movie Zero Hour! The earlier film featured Dana Andrews in the role of Lt. Striker, for instance, and Airplane! includes numerous jokes and gags that derive directly from the 1957 film.[1] The plot device of the food poisoning incident, which figures prominently in the story line of Airplane!, also came from Zero Hour!

Pilot (or Aviator)





An Pilot (or aviator) is a person who flies aircraft for pleasure or as a profession. The word is normally applied to pilots, but it can be applied more broadly, for example to include people such as wing-walkers who regularly take part in an aerobatic display sequence. The word aviatrix is sometimes used of women flyers, reflecting the word's Latin root.

The term was more used in the early days of aviation and has connotations of bravery and adventure. Anyone can fly an aircraft, with or without a certificate. However, at all times the aircraft must be under the operational control of a properly certified and current pilot, who is responsible for the safe and legal completion of the flight. The first certificate was delivered by the Aero Club de France to Louis Blériot in 1908, followed by Glenn Curtiss, Leon Delagrange and Robert Esnault-Pelterie. The absolute authority given to the Pilot in Command is derived from that of a ship’s captain.[citation needed]

In the United Kingdom there were (in 2000) 31,885 private pilots and 16,449 airline and commercial pilots (ATPL and CPL) registered with the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Among private pilots, only 6% are female (approximately 1800). In the commercial sector this percentage drops to only 2%.

The United States Federal Aviation Administration estimates there are 609,737 active pilots with US Airmen certificates as of December 31, 2005. [1] Of these, about 6% (36,584) are female.

The U.S. state of Alaska has the highest number of pilots per capita: out of an estimated 663,661 residents, 8,550 are pilots, or about one in every 78.

Sea Hurricane


Hi there,

April stats about the forum traffic are quite amazing...
Number of newbies a bit lower, but almost double posts!
Any suggestion?  ;)

ikothesis


click here to spot the pilot:      http://file028a.bebo.com/1/large/2007/04/14/21/2083589797a4108042551b65708621l.jpg


Hawker Seany Hurricane Mk X, NX33TF

http://www.aviationphoto.co.uk/Pictures/Hawker%20Sea%20Hurricane%20MK.IB%20Z7015%20G-BKTH%20Shuttleworth%202004.jpg



...
The Hawker Hurricane was a British single-seat fighter aircraft designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd. Some production of the Hurricane was carried out in Canada by the Canada Car and Foundry Co Ltd.

The 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations, resulting in a series of aircraft which acted as interceptor-fighters, fighter-bombers (also called "Hurribombers"), and ground support aircraft.
Further versions known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications which enabled operation from ships.The Hurricane was significant in enabling the Royal Air Force (RAF) to win the Battle of Britain of 1940, accounting for the majority of the RAF's air victories. About 14,000 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including about 1,200 converted to Sea Hurricanes, and about 1,400 that were built in Canada), and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War.

 I know it's a quote of a quote of an april date but still....??? Stats? Where are the stats?


Tropeognathus



Name Of Dinosaur: Tropeognathus mesembrinus
Pronounciation Of Name: Trope-awg-nay-thus meh-sem-bree-nus (bless you!)
Meaning Of Name: Southern Keel Jaw
Diet: Fish and squid
Wingspan: 20 feet
Height: 5 feet (at head when on all fours)
Weight: 25 pounds (that’s my personal estimate)
Time It Lived: Cretaceous Period, 122-112 million years ago
Fossils Found In: Brazil
Information: Considering that Tropeognathus is a Pterosaur (Tare-oh-sore), not a dinosaur, I probably shouldn't have put "Name Of Dinosaur" at the top of this fact file, but I need to keep a strict fact file code. Anyway, Tropeognathus is a very interesting pterosaur. About the size of a hang glider, it was a mid-sized Cretaceous Ornithocheirid (Ore-nih-thoh-kye-rid) Pterosaur, which soared over the Brazilian seas like a gigantic seagull. At the end of its two-foot long bill, Tropeognathus possessed a pair of keels, one on the upper jaw and one on the lower. These keels probably acted as stabilizers when Tropeognathus dipped its bill into the water to grab fish while in flight. The keels allowed the bill to cut smoothly through the water, preventing Tropeognathus from losing its balance, falling into the water, soaking itself, and, unable to become airborne again, leaving it an easy target for marine predators. Like its distant relative, the better-known Pteranodon (Tare-an-oh-dawn), Tropeognathus sported a crest at the back of its skull, but this crest was very small, probably not much more than a bony lump on the back of the head. One very interesting recently discovered fact about pterosaurs is that they possessed a highly sophisticated physiological flight apparatus. CAT scans of Pterosaur braincases reveal that their skulls contained huge brain lobes and tiny inner ear canals. This system, called the flocculus, was apparently capable of linking brain activity with body movement, allowing the Pterosaur to focus on searching for its prey on the ground or in the water below while still keeping full aerodynamic control. Complex muscle structures near the surface of the Pterosaur's wings acted like sensory organs, collecting data on wind speed, air temperature, wing tension and position, and other important aerodynamic factors, and sending it all to the Pterosaur's brain via the flocculus. Then the brain could send information back through the flocculus and to the wings, instructing changes on wing tension, adapting the wings to alter flight speed or direction in accordance to the surrounding conditions. This system would have made the Pterosaurs far more efficient flyers than any bird, bat, or man-made aircraft. So it looks like we can't use the Pterosaur extinction theory of competitive evolutionary pressure by birds any more.

We should ask our moderators: when you click 'more stats' now
you get the usual list of top posters and topic starters.
In the old days there was a list at the bottom: number of
new members, new topics and posts in the previous months.
It just disappeared...few weeks ago. We'll survive.

VERUCCA



A plantar wart (also verruca plantaris or verruca) is a wart caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV). It is a small lesion that appears on the sole of the foot (hence the name, from Latin planta pedis, the sole of the foot) and typically resembles a cauliflower. A plantar wart may have small black specks within it that ooze blood when the surface is cut or shaved; these are abnormal capillaries. Though the name plantar wart describes specifically HPV infection on the sole of the foot, infection by the virus is possible anywhere on the body and common especially on the palm of the hand, where the appearance of the wart is often exactly as described above for plantar warts.
