100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.


Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even decorate abstract concepts like consciousness and love.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.

But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinational, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Synthesis and Insight into the Structure–Activity Relationships of Chalcones as Antimalarial Agents

Synthesis and Insight into the Structure–Activity Relationships of Chalcones as Antimalarial Agents | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Licochalcone A (I), isolated from the roots of Chinese licorice, is the most promising antimalarial compound reported so far. In continuation of our drug discovery program, we isolated two similar chalcones, medicagenin (II) and munchiwarin (III), from Crotalaria medicagenia, which exhibited antimalarial activity against Plasmodium falciparum. A library of 88 chalcones were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antimalarial activity. Among these, 67, 68, 74, 77, and 78 exhibited good in vitro antimalarial activity against P. falciparum strains 3D7 and K1 with low cytotoxicity. These chalcones also showed reduction in parasitemia and increased survival time of Swiss mice infected with Plasmodium yoelii (strain N-67). Pharmacokinetic studies indicated that low oral bioavailability due to poor ADME properties. Molecular docking studies revealed the binding orientation of these inhibitors in active sites of falcipain-2 (FP-2) enzyme. Compounds 67, 68, and 78 showed modest inhibitory activity against the major hemoglobin degrading cysteine protease FP-2.
