A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects!

I am subdued and embarrassingly saddened by the passage of one of the dearest men ever to speak our mother tongue, my brother John, at 3:40 this morning in Grass Valley, California. His existence was woven into the fabric of my life from childhood, and it is unsettling to have to reorganize my universe and accommodate his sudden, permanent absence. He was a thoroughly decent man, kind, intelligent, highly humorous, with a casual courageousness that proved that life was more fun and less frightening than it is reputed to be. He will be missed by scores of friends and relatives.

I am of the opinion that he is spending some time hanging out at around 80,000 feet just admiring the view and enjoying the relief from a very trying and painful year of decline. I wish him grand adventure and great success wherever he may next turn his attention.

Little Hawk, you'll have to treat that errant apostrophe like a flyspeck on the page. I have a horrible head cold, I feel like shit, and probably shouldn't be sitting up and typing at all. I think I'll go take a nap.

Jeeze, Ed, I think you got to takin; it all wrong. Why, you ain't had a fraction of a smithereen of the abuse I handed out to Leedle Hack and the Manne of Bookes, yet they--hidebound stalwarts both--keep carryin' on in the best Mom tradition. Why, I even made you a hero in the last Epic!! Most folks don't get that recognition until they've been in harness a year or more, and Little Hawk is still waiting.

I thank you for bringing to my attention the often overlooked sciewntrific particle Monoamine oxidase B, also known as MAOB, which is a protein which in humans is encoded by the MAOB gene.

But in the house of Mom we generally spell it t'other way by convention.

I do hope your personal pique will slip aside and you will return to these sacred halls with new vigor.

BWL, though I tend to only visit buffet type restaurants when I'm eating cheap and my kids can't make up their minds what they want, that is one good way to try new stuff. Alas, unless it's a Chinese restaurant, they rarely have buffets. This is good for the food, but it does mean you have to keep going back to try dishes.

Right now I won't waste my money on any ethnic food--I can't smell a thing, so taste has pretty well shut down with it. Moonglow had a cold last weekend when she was here, and she left enough of it behind to nail me.

To clarify my comments about Mexican food...

First off, the rule actually applies to all ethnic restaurants, not just Mexican.

Stated in a nutshell, the rule is "No matter what you order at an ethnic restaurant, someone at another table will have ordered something that, when it's served, will make you wish you had ordered it instead."

Ironically, if you ask the waiter what that person ordered and order it next time, someone else will have ordered something else that will make you wish you had ordered it instead. It doesn't matter what you order, what someone else ordered will always look more interesting. Of course, there is some comfort in the fact that what you ordered will always look more interesting to someone else than what they ordered. It's a never-ending cycle.

It probably has to do with the fact that while you're waiting for your food to arrive, your food exists only as an abstraction, while the food of the person who's actually being served exists in reality and is, therefore, more immediately desirable than what you ordered. Or is that too Platonic of an explanation?

Fish to the Rescue

(Mar. 30, 2009) ? The benefits to animals of omega 3 fatty acids in fish
oils have been well documented ? helping the heart and circulatory system, improving meat quality and reducing methane emissions.

These last two benefits may only apply to cows but lowering emissions is important for the environment, as methane given off by farm animals is a major contribution to greenhouse gas levels. Researchers from University College Dublin reported that by including 2% fish oil in the diet of cattle, they achieved a reduction in the amount of methane released by the animals.

Speaking at the Society for General Microbiology meeting in Harrogate March 30, Dr Lorraine Lillis, one of the researchers, said, "The fish oil affects the methane-producing bacteria in the rumen part of the cow's gut, leading to reduced emissions. Understanding which microbial species are particularly influenced by changes in diet and relating them to methane production could bring about a more targeted approach to reducing methane emissions in animals."

More than a third of all methane emissions, around 900 billion tonnes every year, are produced by methanogen bacteria that live in the digestive systems of ruminants such as cattle, sheep and goats. By volume, methane is 20 times more powerful at trapping solar energy than carbon dioxide making it a potent greenhouse gas.

Approximately 50% of Irish agricultural methane emissions result from farm animals; there have been suggestions that, to help combat global warming, a cap be placed on the number of animals in animal production due to their methane production but with a reduction in methane levels through diet this may not be as necessary.

According to an article appearing today in Zeitung fur Physiologik und Abführmittel, scientists at Heidelberg University have discovered that 90%+ of the atmospheric methane present in today's atmosphere has been emitted within the last ten years. The source of the largest emitter is, according to Professor Dietrich Rosen of the Department of Abführmittel, "is somewhere in Southern Ohio of the United States."

Satellite studies confirm the hypothesis, which Dr. Rosen began work upon in 2002. In the past, says Dr. Rosen, studies have blamed "everything from the cow farts to factories."

Working with a grant from the German government and the European Space Agency, Dr. Rosen and his team expect to pinpoint the exact location of the emitter within the next few months.

MAOB and the Alien theory needs rethinking:

Earth's Atmosphere Came from Outer Space, Scientists Find

ScienceDaily (Dec. 11, 2009) ? The gases which formed the Earth's atmosphere -- and probably its oceans -- did not come from inside the Earth but from outer space, according to a study by University of Manchester and University of Houston scientists.

The report published in the journal Science means that textbook images of ancient Earth with huge volcanoes spewing gas into the atmosphere will have to be rethought.

According to the team, the age-old view that volcanoes were the source of the Earth's earliest atmosphere must be put to rest.

Using world-leading analytical techniques, the team of Dr Greg Holland, Dr Martin Cassidy and Professor Chris Ballentine tested volcanic gases to uncover the new evidence.

The research was funded by Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

"We found a clear meteorite signature in volcanic gases," said Dr Greg Holland the project's lead scientist.

"From that we now know that the volcanic gases could not have contributed in any significant way to the Earth's atmosphere.

"Therefore the atmosphere and oceans must have come from somewhere else, possibly from a late bombardment of gas and water rich materials similar to comets.

"Until now, no one has had instruments capable of looking for these subtle signatures in samples from inside the Earth -- but now we can do exactly that."

The techniques enabled the team to measure tiny quantities of the unreactive volcanic trace gases Krypton and Xenon, which revealed an isotopic 'fingerprint' matching that of meteorites which is different from that of 'solar' gases.

The study is also the first to establish the precise composition of the Krypton present in the Earth's mantle.

Project director Prof Chris Ballentine of The University of Manchester, said: "Many people have seen artist's impressions of the primordial Earth with huge volcanoes in the background spewing gas to form the atmosphere.

"We will now have to redraw this picture."

Using atoms at temperatures colder than deep space, Rice University physicists have delivered overwhelming proof for a once-scoffed-at theory that's become a hotbed for research some 40 years after it first appeared. In a paper available online in Science Express, Rice's team offers experimental evidence for a universal quantum mechanism that allows trios of particles to appear and reappear at higher energy levels in an infinite progression. The triplets, often called trimers, form in special cases where pairs cannot.

"It's such a remarkable phenomena," said team leader Randy Hulet. "There are examples, like the Borromean rings, where having a third component is crucial. Any two of the rings will unbind if the third is removed, and these trimers are similar. The particles want to bind, but no two can do it. They need the third one to make it happen."

The trimers were first predicted almost 40 years ago by theoretical physicist Vitaly Efimov. The most striking feature of Efimov's prediction was that the effect was both universal and repeating. That meant that the trimers could form from anything, be it as large as an atom or as small as a quark. And it also meant that Efimov's trimers would form repeatedly, up and down the energy scale in a stepwise fashion. Efimov, now at the University of Washington, even predicted the spacing in energy of the trimers; he said they would appear every time the binding energy increased by a factor of 22.7.
"A lot of people didn't believe him," said Hulet, Rice's Fayez Sarofim Professor of Physics and Astronomy. "That's partly because physicists can handle two-body problems quite well and many-body problems fairly well, but when there are just a few objects, like the three bodies in these Efimov trimers, there are just too many variables."




The above, from Phys.Org's news feed, is a wonderful breakthrough. It explains MOAB. Well, 92,5 per cent of it, anyway.
