Flu Breathalyzer - A sensor spots flu viruses in people's exhaled breath

Flu Breathalyzer - A sensor spots flu viruses in people's exhaled breath | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it

The exhalations of people with the flu can do more than just sicken others. Chinese researchers have developed a quick and noninvasive diagnostic tool that identifies influenza viruses in the breath of sick people. Doctors usually diagnose flu by its symptoms, but misdiagnoses are common. Reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR) can accurately detect the flu by identifying genetic material from viruses, but it takes several hours. To speed virus detection, Maosheng Yao of Peking University and colleagues developed a way to rapidly condense the liquid in breath, and then analyze it with an ultrasensitive silicon nanowire sensor.

Thread: The Candida is Killed by Alkalinity Myth at Candida Debate Forum (ThreadID: 1385632)

There is a very persistent myth that Candida albicans cannot survive a high (alkaline) pH. The fact is that C. albicans can survive very acid to extremely alkaline pH. The primary difference is the form it takes on dependent on the pH.

Comets Created Earth's Oceans, Study Concludes

Comets Created Earth's Oceans, Study Concludes | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it
Earth-like water, like that in the oceans, has been found on comet Hartley 2.

 

The dirty snowballs known as comets might be the sources of Earth's water after all, scientists say. Water is critical to life on Earth — life is found virtually wherever there is water on our planet.

 

Now researchers find that water seen in Comet Hartley 2 is very close to Earth's, with about 1,610 deuterium atoms per 10 million regular hydrogen atoms...

What kinds of string theory are there? Where are we in extra dimensions?

What kinds of string theory are there? Where are we in extra dimensions? | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it

The list of uncompactified string theories is short - it only contains 6 entries:

 

- type I string theory with

   spin(32)/Z_2 gauge group

- type IIA string theory

- type IIB string theory

- heterotic E_8 x E_8 string theory

- heterotic spin(32)/Z_2 string theory

- M-theory

 

The first five entries should be called “string theory” because vibrating 1-dimensional strings are the most important objects they contain. All of the string theories contain closed strings (e.g. the graviton is always a closed string); type I string theory is the only one on the list whose strings are unorientable and that also contains open strings. The last entry in the list is the eleven-dimensional M-theory and contains no strings. Instead, it has other extended objects, namely M2-branes and M5-branes. The numerals in the brane nomenclature count the number of spatial dimensions; so strings in string theories are also known as F1-branes (“F” stands for “fundamental”); they may also be obtained as M-theory’s M2-branes with one dimension wrapped around the compact dimension of the M-theory spacetime.
