Goldilocks zone alone not sufficient for search of habitable planets

Goldilocks zone alone not sufficient for search of habitable planets | Communication design | Scoop.it

For decades, it has been thought that the key factor in determining whether a planet can support life was its distance from its sun. In our solar system, for instance, Venus is too close to the sun and Mars is too far, but Earth is just right. That distance is what scientists refer to as the "habitable zone," or the "Goldilocks zone."

It also was thought that planets were able to self-regulate their internal temperature via mantle convection—the underground shifting of rocks caused by internal heating and cooling. A planet might start out too cold or too hot, but it would eventually settle into the right temperature.

A new study, appearing in the journal Science Advances, suggests that simply being in the habitable zone isn't sufficient to support life. A planet also must start with an internal temperature that is just right.

Dual Room reappropriates the glory hole in its identity for a festival about sexuality

Dual Room reappropriates the glory hole in its identity for a festival about sexuality | Communication design | Scoop.it

"La Fête du Slip":http://www.lafeteduslip.ch/2016/en/home/ is an annual event in Switzerland that aims to convey a “positive and celebratory approach to sexualities,” and through a series of creative events it addresses ideas surrounding gender, body image and sex. While the festival is an important event, which covers many issues, there’s a tongue-in-cheek flavour to the whole programme. As such, Berlin-based studio Dual Room has adopted a similar mischievous approach for the identity that's been inspired by the glory hole – a universal cavern, devoid of judgement.

5 mistakes to avoid when curating influencer content

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, August 25, 8:08 PM

As I've written here on the Traackr's blog, content curation is a great first step to build influencer relationships. In short, by curating their content the right way, you not only bring them traffic but you also enrich the conversation and engagement around their content. You give before you get which makes them more likely to respond to your future requests to collaborate or getting help with sharing content. 

 

But as [url=/u/2371285 x-already-notified=1]Erika Heald[/url] points out in this great post, this type of curation is not for the lazy marketers who just want a shortcut. There's a right way of doing it and mistakes to avoid (which by the way is one of the reasons to use good tools as they'll act as gatekeeper for doing ethical content curation).

 

It's ok to want to be efficient: actually it's probably a must. But being lazy and efficient are not the same. So here are 5 great things to have in mind when curating content to build influencer relationships.

Theory of everything? How spacetime is built by quantum entanglement

Theory of everything? How spacetime is built by quantum entanglement | Communication design | Scoop.it

A collaboration of physicists and a mathematician has made a significant step toward unifying general relativity and quantum mechanics by explaining how spacetime emerges from quantum entanglement in a more fundamental theory. 

 

Physicists and mathematicians have long sought a Theory of Everything (ToE) that unifies general relativity and quantum mechanics. General relativity explains gravity and large-scale phenomena such as the dynamics of stars and galaxies in the universe, while quantum mechanics explains microscopic phenomena from the subatomic to molecular scales.

Mathematicians Are Building a Unified Theory of Geometric Randomness

Mathematicians Are Building a Unified Theory of Geometric Randomness | Communication design | Scoop.it

Researchers have uncovered deep connections among different types of random objects, illuminating hidden geometric structures.

 

Standard geometric objects can be described by simple rules — every straight line, for example, is just y = ax + b — and they stand in neat relation to each other: Connect two points to make a line, connect four line segments to make a square, connect six squares to make a cube.

 

These are not the kinds of objects that concern Scott Sheffield. Sheffield, a professor of mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studies shapes that are constructed by random processes. No two of them are ever exactly alike.

 

Consider the most familiar random shape, the random walk, which shows up everywhere from the movement of financial asset prices to the path of particles in quantum physics. These walks are described as random because no knowledge of the path up to a given point can allow you to predict where it will go next.

By Not Challenging Gifted Kids, What Do We Risk Losing?

By Not Challenging Gifted Kids, What Do We Risk Losing? | Communication design | Scoop.it
It’s easy to assume that for extremely bright young pupils, life in the classroom is a snap. But when conventional school curricula fail to stimulate their hungry young brains, leaving them bored and stymied, these kids may get lost in the system. Some end up with C averages and slip into truancy, and many may never blossom to their full potential. It’s a big loss for lots of reasons, including the fact that these precocious kids represent a unique pool of talent for generating new ideas and innovations. And because of inadequate policies, we may be losing opportunities to nurture the Henry Fords and Marie Curies of the future.

Ultrathin, transparent oxide thin-film transistors for wearable display

Ultrathin, transparent oxide thin-film transistors for wearable display | Communication design | Scoop.it

With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT) era, strong demand has grown for wearable and transparent displays that can be applied to various fields such as augmented reality (AR) and skin-like thin flexible devices. However, previous flexible transparent displays have posed real challenges to overcome, which are, among others, poor transparency and low electrical performance. To improve the transparency and performance, past research efforts have tried to use inorganic-based electronics, but the fundamental thermal instabilities of plastic substrates have hampered the high temperature process, an essential step necessary for the fabrication of high performance electronic devices.

A Debate Over the Physics of Time

A Debate Over the Physics of Time | Communication design | Scoop.it
According to our best theories of physics, the universe is a fixed block where time only appears to pass.

 

Last month, about 60 physicists, along with a handful of philosophers and researchers from other branches of science, gathered at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada, to debate this question at the Time in Cosmology conference. The conference was co-organized by the physicist Lee Smolin, an outspoken critic of the block-universe idea (among other topics). His position is spelled out for a lay audience in Time Reborn and in a more technical work, The Singular Universe and the Reality of Time, co-authored with the philosopher Roberto Mangabeira Unger, who was also a co-organizer of the conference. In the latter work, mirroring Elitzur’s sentiments about the future’s lack of concreteness, Smolin wrote: “The future is not now real and there can be no definite facts of the matter about the future.” What is real is “the process by which future events are generated out of present events,” he said at the conference.

 

Andreas Albrecht, a physicist at the University of California, Davis, presents his work on the nature of time. Those in attendance wrestled with several questions: the distinction between past, present and future; why time appears to move in only one direction; and whether time is fundamental or emergent. Most of those issues, not surprisingly, remained unresolved. But for four days, participants listened attentively to the latest proposals for tackling these questions — and, especially, to the ways in which we might reconcile our perception of time’s passage with a static, seemingly timeless universe.
