Toys that expand in water are a potential safety hazard for kids

Toys that expand in water are a potential safety hazard for kids | Technology and Technological Addiction | Scoop.it
They’re colorful and alluring, but Consumer Reports says there’s a potential safety hazard with popular small toy balls and beads that expand dramatically in water.
Kenneth Vincent King's insight:

Excuse me for just pointing this out, but where are the parents in all of this? How the hell did an 8 month old get ahold of these toys? How come parents are not held accountable for the stupidity of themselves and their own children? If a toy says "choking hazard"- then it should be quite the hell obvious YOU DON'T buy such a thing if your child is underage, and the child doesn't receive proper parental supervision. No, most parents of today are complete idiots when it comes to supervising children because of their "Me time"

I don't care he surrendered to MP's, the fucktard should have been shot dead, right there and then.That's what he did to those soldiers. What the hell is happening in the military? What, we don't shoot people anymore? Is our military a bunch of flower-power hippies? Too scared to pull the trigger?

Study sheds new light on how cellular transport systems harness energy to perform work inside the cell

Study sheds new light on how cellular transport systems harness energy to perform work inside the cell | Technology and Technological Addiction | Scoop.it

Using highly sensitive fluorescent probes, a team of scientists from the University of Connecticut has captured the never-before-seen structural dynamics of an important protein channel inside the cell's primary power plant – the mitochondrion.

 

The University of Connecticut team's study found that the channel complex - known as the translocase of the inner mitochondrial membrane 23 or TIM23 – is not only directly coupled to the energized state of the mitochondrial inner membrane as scientists have long suspected, it also changes its fundamental structure - altering the helical shape of protein segments that line the channel - when voltage along the membrane's electrical field drops.

It also shows how fluorescent mapping at the subcelllar level may reveal new insights into the underlying causes of neurodegenerative and metabolic disorders associated with mitochondrial function.

 

In an overview of the research accompanying the paper's publication, Nikolaus Pfanner of the University of Freiberg in Germany and an international leader in the field of cellular protein trafficking, and several members of his research group, called the study "a major step towards a molecular understanding of a voltage-gated protein translocase."

 

"The molecular nature of voltage sensors in membrane proteins is a central question in biochemical research," Pfanner and his colleagues said. "The study…is not only of fundamental importance for our understanding of mitochondrial biogenesis, but also opens up new perspectives in the search for voltage-responsive elements in membrane proteins."
