The 100 Most Expensive Keywords on Google #Infographic | Communication design | Scoop.it
Google has many different sources of revenue, but one of their most noticeable is the ads that appear next to search results for specific keywords. How much that keyword costs depends, in part, on how often people search for it -- the more people search for a certain keyword, the more expensive it is.

The question of content curation as an ethical practice still appears very frequently in blog posts. It's great that @Guillaume Decugis addresses it the way he does in this post.


While Scoop.it certainly offers features that make your work easier and faster, it's important to take the time to add insights and comments to bring context into the equation. 


Great content curation helps everyone!

Wormhole Created in Lab Makes Invisible Magnetic Field

Wormhole Created in Lab Makes Invisible Magnetic Field | Communication design | Scoop.it
Physicists have created a so-called magnetic wormhole that transports a magnetic field from one point to the other without being detected.


Ripped from the pages of a sci-fi novel, physicists have crafted a wormhole that tunnels a magnetic field through space. "This device can transmit the magnetic field from one point in space to another point, through a path that is magnetically invisible," said study co-author Jordi Prat-Camps, a doctoral candidate in physics at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain. "From a magnetic point of view, this device acts like a wormhole, as if the magnetic field was transferred through an extra special dimension." 


The idea of a wormhole comes from Albert Einstein's theories. In 1935, Einstein and colleague Nathan Rosen realized that the general theory of relativity allowed for the existence of bridges that could link two different points in space-time. Theoretically these Einstein-Rosen bridges, or wormholes, could allow something to tunnel instantly between great distances (though the tunnels in this theory are extremely tiny, so ordinarily wouldn't fit a space traveler). So far, no one has found evidence that space-time wormholes actually exist.


The new wormhole isn't a space-time wormhole per se, but is instead a realization of a futuristic "invisibility cloak" first proposed in 2007 in the journal Physical Review Letters. This type of wormhole would hide electromagnetic waves from view from the outside. The trouble was, to make the method work for light required materials that are extremely impractical and difficult to work with, Prat said.


But it turned out the materials to make a magnetic wormhole already exist and are much simpler to come by. In particular, superconductors, which can carry high levels of current, or charged particles, expel magnetic field lines from their interiors, essentially bending or distorting these lines. This essentially allows the magnetic field to do something different from its surrounding 3D environment, which is the first step in concealing the disturbance in a magnetic field.


So the team designed a three-layer object, consisting of two concentric spheres with an interior spiral-cylinder. The interior layer essentially transmitted a magnetic field from one end to the other, while the other two layers acted to conceal the field's existence.

The inner cylinder was made of a ferromagnetic mu-metal. Ferromagnetic materials exhibit the strongest form of magnetism, while mu-metals are highly permeable and are often used for shielding electronic devices.


A thin shell made up of a high-temperature superconducting material called yttrium barium copper oxide lined the inner cylinder, bending the magnetic field that traveled through the interior.  The final shell was made of another mu-metal, but composed of 150 pieces cut and placed to perfectly cancel out the bending of the magnetic field by the superconducting shell. The whole device was placed in a liquid nitrogen bath in order to work. Normally, magnetic field lines radiate out from a certain location and decay over time, but the presence of the magnetic field should be detectable from points all around it. However, the new magnetic wormhole funnels the magnetic field from one side of the cylinder to another so that it is "invisible" while in transit, seeming to pop out of nowhere on the exit side of the tube, the researchers report today (Aug. 20, 2015) in the journal Scientific Reports.

Harold Feinstein, master photographer and renowned teacher, died in his home on Saturday, June 20, 2015. His wife Judith Thompson was at his side. Feinstein was born in Coney Island Hospital in 1931 of Jewish immigrant parents. He began photographing in 1946 at the age of 15 by borrowing a Rolleiflex from a neighbor and heading straight to Coney Island. Certain of his calling as an artist, he dropped out of school at the age of 16 and became the youngest member of New York’s historic Photo League in 1949.
