Map Projections

Map Projections | History, sci - eclectic magazine | Scoop.it

A map projection is used to portray all or part of the round Earth on a flat surface. This cannot be done without some distortion.  Every projection has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. There is no "best" projection.  The mapmaker must select the one best suited to the needs, reducing distortion of the most important features.  Mapmakers and mathematicians have devised almost limitless ways to project the image of the globe onto paper. Scientists at the U. S. Geological Survey have designed projections for their specific needs—such as the Space Oblique Mercator, which allows mapping from satellites with little or no distortion.  This document gives the key properties, characteristics, and preferred uses of many historically important projections and of those frequently used by mapmakers today.

This article explains and talks about 18 specific map projections. It gives a lot of detail about all of them, and describes the disadvantages and uses for all of them.

 

I thought that this was interesting because I learned more about map projections, and actually how people use them.

Female Brain Maintained by Methylation | The Scientist Magazine® | History, sci - eclectic magazine | Scoop.it
Development of female sexual behaviors requires DNA methylation in the preoptic area of the rodent brain. 
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

...

There is very little known about how the brain is masculinized—and even less about how it is feminized—even though the question has been studied for more than 50 years, said Bridget Nugent, study author and now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.

 

These sex differences in the brain are programmed toward the end of fetal development, through to one week after birth in rodents. In males, testicular hormones drive masculinization of the brain; this was thought to occur by direct induction of gene expression by hormone-associated transcription factors. Because a feminized brain occurred in the absence of ovarian hormone signals, most researchers assumed that the female brain and behavior was a sort of default state, programmed during development when no male hormones are present.

Alternate Pathways Yield New Antibiotics | The Scientist Magazine®

Alternate Pathways Yield New Antibiotics | The Scientist Magazine® | History, sci - eclectic magazine | Scoop.it
Scientists tinker with biosynthetic pathways to make versions of a common antibiotic that stunt drug-resistant bacteria.
Mick D Kirkov's insight:

...doing a Frankenstein thing, pulling all of these enzymes together...

 

 

To get to point where they could alter the biosynthesis of erythromycin, Pfeifer and his colleagues worked to “transplant” its entire biochemical pathway into the lab-friendly species E. coli. Getting E. coli to express and use the enzymes correctly “took years of tinkering and optimization,” said Pfeifer.

In 2010, Pfeifer’s lab accomplished this feat, laying the groundwork for the current study. “Once we went through all of the growing pains of establishing the process, we had this unprecedented toolbox,” he said.

For the present study, Guojian Zhang—a postdoc in Pfeifer’s lab—used this toolbox to build upon the system by introducing enzymatic pathways that could alter a sugar group added toward the end of erythromycin synthesis. To reconstitute these pathways in E. coli, Zhang borrowed genes from several other bacterial species. “He was kind of doing a Frankenstein thing, pulling all of these enzymes together,” said Pfeifer.

Kristin Mandsager San Bento's curator insight, April 7, 9:08 PM

It was amazing to see the start of the Ottoman empire and the rise over a couple of hundred years.  Then you see the green recede and its amazing it shrinks down to nothing.  All you have left is Turkey.  Once a prosperous empire, it no longer exists.  

Kevin Cournoyer's curator insight, May 6, 12:25 PM

This GIF map was particularly interesting to me as a history major and as someone who strongly believes in the importance of incorporating geography into history whenever possible. Though my knowledge about the Ottoman Empire is admittedly lacking, it was still interesting to see the changes that occurred in the empire's borders over six centuries. Some time frames saw significant land gains, others significant losses, and still others small shifts. Someone more well-versed in the history of the Ottoman Empire than I would be able to tell exactly what these changes coincided with, but I knew that the timeline would end shortly after WWI, since that was the undoing of many European/Eurasian empires, including the Ottomans. 

 

What this map best illustrates is the fluidity of borders. Here is an empire that existed for more than 600 years, and its borders changed numerous times throughout its history. While this likely occurred as a result of armed conflict, it is still a major change. Often, people think of borders as concrete and unmoving. This is not the case at all, as borders can shift due to war, treaties, or even natural, geographical change. A GIF map like this is useful and interesting because it shows easily and chronologically the change in borders of a particular nation or empire over the course of its history. Furthermore, it allows the viewer to ponder the implications of the border shifts and how they would have affected politics, economics, and culture at the time.
