Mapping the human impact on the Great Lakes

Mapping the human impact on the Great Lakes | numeric | Scoop.it

"It’s no secret that the Great Lakes are suffering tremendous ecological strain — Lake Erie was even pronounced “dead” for a time during the 1960s because of an overload of phosphorus from municipal waste. Back in 1615, though, when the entire region was pristine and explorers Samuel de Champlain and Étienne Brûlé gazed out together from Lake Huron’s shores, they dubbed it la mer douce, 'the sweet sea.' Today roughly one-quarter of Canada’s population and a 10th of America’s population drink from the Great Lakes basin; the beleaguered lakes alone hold more than a fifth of Earth’s freshwater."

Questions to Ponder: What watershed do you live in?  Where does your drinking water come from?  When you flush the toilet, where does it go? How are places in your watershed linked?  How does this similar map shed more light on these issues?

The path of the solar eclipse is already altering real-world behavior | numeric | Scoop.it
“The highly anticipated event is casting a long shadow online.”

The upcoming solar eclipse is poised to become the “most photographed, most shared, most tweeted event in human history,” in the words of one astronomer. Millions of people will watch it, potentially overwhelming the cities and towns along the eclipse's path of totality.

According to Google, interest in the eclipse has exploded nationwide in the past few months, mirroring national media attention. The county-level search data above, provided by Google, paints a striking picture: Interest in the eclipse is concentrated in the path of totality that cuts through the middle of the country, receding sharply the farther you go from that path.

Hyper lieux de la mondialisation - Éduscol HG | numeric | Scoop.it
Théorisée par Michel Lussault, géographe et professeur à l’École normale supérieure de Lyon, la notion d'hyper lieu dans un contexte spatial mondialisé renvoie à des territoires aux identités particulières. L'auteur de cette « nouvelle géographie de la mondialisation » a pu s'en expliquer lors d'entretiens radiophoniques ou préciser sa définition lors d'un Café géo à Lyon en avril 2017. Mais pour rendre compte de cette analyse essentielle qui réfute l'uniformisation des territoires mondialisés, des exemples précis peuvent être mobilisés. Libération a ainsi proposé la description et l'analyse de onze territoires lors d'une série de reportages. Michel Lussault signe notamment la première analyse concernant Times Square, puis les cas de Palmyre, Ipanema, Hiroshima, Istanbul, Tombouctou, Beaubourg, Lagos, Tianjin, Dubai et pour finir l'ISS sont proposés par des géographes, des historiens ou des écrivains.

Pour préciser le concept d'« hyper lieu » de la mondialisation, une série d'exemples a été proposée par Libération cet été. Ces différents exemples peuvent constituer la base d'analyses spatiales locales de territoires lors des études de cas menées en classe de terminale notamment. Par ailleurs, cette série d'analyse permet aussi de préciser les dynamiques générales du phénomène de mondialisation. Une série d'articles à découvrir et à exploiter en 4e et Terminale notamment.

Living computers: RNA circuits transform cells into nanodevices

Living computers: RNA circuits transform cells into nanodevices | numeric | Scoop.it

The interdisciplinary nexus of biology and engineering, known as synthetic biology, is growing at a rapid pace, opening new vistas that could scarcely be imagined a short time ago.

In a new research, Alex Green, an assistant professor at ASU’s Biodesign Institute, demonstrates how living cells can be induced to carry out computations in the manner of tiny robots or computers. The results of the new study have significant implications for intelligent drug design and smart drug delivery, green energy production, low-cost diagnostic technologies and even the development of futuristic nanomachines capable of hunting down cancer cells or switching off aberrant genes.

“We’re using very predictable and programmable RNA-RNA interactions to define what these circuits can do,” Green said. “That means we can use computer software to design RNA sequences that behave the way we want them to in a cell. It makes the design process a lot faster.” The study appears in the advance online edition of the journal Nature.

New algorithm generates folding patterns to produce any 3-D origami structure

New algorithm generates folding patterns to produce any 3-D origami structure | numeric | Scoop.it

In a 1999 paper, Erik Demaine—now an MIT professor of electrical engineering and computer science, but then an 18-year-old PhD student at the University of Waterloo, in Canada—described an algorithm that could determine how to fold a piece of paper into any conceivable 3-D shape.

It was a milestone paper in the field of computational origami, but the algorithm didn't yield very practical folding patterns. Essentially, it took a very long strip of paper and wound it into the desired shape. The resulting structures tended to have lots of seams where the strip doubled back on itself, so they weren't very sturdy.

At the Symposium on Computational Geometry in July, Demaine and Tomohiro Tachi of the University of Tokyo will announce the completion of a quest that began with that 1999 paper: a universal algorithm for folding origami shapes that guarantees a minimum number of seams.

"In 1999, we proved that you could fold any polyhedron, but the way that we showed how to do it was very inefficient," Demaine says. "It's efficient if your initial piece of paper is super-long and skinny. But if you were going to start with a square piece of paper, then that old method would basically fold the square paper down to a thin strip, wasting almost all the material. The new result promises to be much more efficient. It's a totally different strategy for thinking about how to make a polyhedron."

Demaine and Tachi are also working to implement the algorithm in a new version of Origamizer, the free software for generating origami crease patterns whose first version Tachi released in 2008.
