You’re Listening To A Musical Instrument Made Of Jell-O

You’re Listening To A Musical Instrument Made Of Jell-O | High School Science Articles | Scoop.it
As a species, we’ve sure put a lot of work into designing strange, noise-making implements that we pretend are perfectly normal by labeling them as “musical instruments.” Consider a tuba or a sitar--these are oddities by any aesthetic standard.

 

Okay...so this is really nothing cooler than this! #1. I want them all. #2. What a great video to get your kids talking! How are the sound waves transmitted? Why do you have to touch the Jell-O? Do bigger pieces make different sounds? Why?

Current Opinion in Plant Biology: Oomycetes, effectors, and all that jazz

Current Opinion in Plant Biology: Oomycetes, effectors, and all that jazz | High School Science Articles | Scoop.it

Plant pathogenic oomycetes secrete a diverse repertoire of effector proteins that modulate host innate immunity and enable parasitic infection. Understanding how effectors evolve, translocate and traffic inside host cells, and perturb host processes are major themes in the study of oomycete–plant interactions. The last year has seen important progress in the study of oomycete effectors with, notably, the elucidation of the 3D structures of five RXLR effectors, and novel insights into how cytoplasmic effectors subvert host cells. In this review, we discuss these and other recent advances and highlight the most important open questions in oomycete effector biology.

Sip carefully

A new line of relaxation drinks containing neurotransmitters and hormones purports to help consumers sleep and reduce stress. Scientists should raise awareness of the potential harms of these drinks and pressure industry and government to increase the regulation of their sale and use.
