What does /sci/ think of this years Wolf prize in Mathematics? I went to a public lecture of his yesterday and I must say it was pretty interesting, although I got lost in places as I am still just an undergrad student. Has anyone worked with or been lectured by him here?

are scientists really as terrified of rocking the boat as this novel suggests?

I'm probably being a massive retard but i had a weird thought the other day: >Different objects absorb and reflect different wavelengths of light. >what ever reflects into our eyes ultimately forms our concept of what the object looks like. Mirrors. Do They reflect all light? If so, what does a mirror actually look like then? What IS a mirror?

The Japanese Okayama University announced the dictum about GOKEI gorge on July 4 at Tokyo time.The Okayama University reached the conclusion that erosion action of nature produced GOKEI gorges as a result of analysis by the person of data and learning sent by a citizen.However, citizens of Japan to claim the remains GOKEI theory not convinced to this comment. Citizen says. "Even the White House's white monolith GOKEI canyon if rocky mountain." It has resulted in a model answer there is good sense of academic, threw fuel to the flame of romantic who believes in dreams of local

So easy question. We need to create a special effect. We need to submerge a small wooden sarcophagus (47L volume) under water with a rope and keep it there. I calculated I would need at least a 48Kg weight attached to the rope to keep it there. Is this correct or did I mess-up my calculations?

My community college offers only three of the following languages: Spanish, French, and German. My programming mapper for uni recommended I get my three level language out of the way at one of the schools. Which of these languages are the most /sci/? What would you take if you hadn't taken them already. I'm planning to take them my last 3 semesters of CC. >inb4 lel CC >inb4 lel you didn't get these out of the way in HS

For any biologists, I have a question I've been thinking about for a while. I understand that prokaryotes can regulate membrane fluidity by changing their membranal phospholipid structure, am I right? So why can't eukaryotes do it? I understand we only regulate membranal fluidity by cholesterol levels. Wouldn't we have both mechanisms if we evolved from prokaryotes?

Need someone knowledgeable in biology/genetics to explain a bit about the academic papers in the links if possible in pleb terms/concepts/with analagies perhaps (econ major; not much bio exp.). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/4620731 related link. more interested in the first one tho > The Ashbya gossypii genome as a tool for mapping the ancient Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15001715/ Thanks to anyone willing to spend the time to help. It has to do with protein coding

you can call me dr. me I'm going to build an integratron The workings of the Integratron, according to Van Tassel, rely on the generation of a strong electric field resulting in the generation of plasma in the form of a coronal discharge and negative air ionization inside the building. The Integratron is based on the Multiple Wave Oscillator invented by Georges Lakhovsky. The Multiple Wave Oscillator is a combination of a HV Tesla coil and a Split-ring resonator that generates ultra wideband electromagnetic frequencies. Van Tassel speculated that EMF affects biological cells, and believed that each individual biological cell has a unique resonant EM frequency. According to Van Tassel, the generation of strong ultra wideband EMF emitted by the Integratron "resonates" with the cells individual frequency and "re-charges" the cellular structure, as if it were an electrical battery. Van Tassel claimed that human cells "rejuvenated" while inside the structure. Van Tassel claimed the Integratron is intentionally constructed atop a powerful geomagnetic anomaly and its construction is entirely of non ferromagnetic materials, the equivalent to a modern radome.

I'm failing undergraduate studies at my current university (math breaking my balls/projects and startup are more interesting) and I won't get accepted into 3rd year entry. That's 2 years "down the drain", but not really because I've been working full-time in parallel and padding out my CV. I'm going to be moving to London to work there next month. I've applied for transfer into the 2nd year at 5 UK universities but I don't know if they'll accept me because of my undergraduate record which lists plainly "1st year 2012-2013 not passed". (pic related) I will possibly get offers to start in the 1st year. Is it worth it slogging through university in parallel with work for another 3 years just for a degree?

Hi /sci/, So i finished my 1st year of geology at uni and have passed with 55%. Which is very bad, luckily the first year does not count towards my final degree mark. However since I will be starting year 2 in 3 months which is assessed, I want to make the most and bumb my grade up to at least 75%. So my question is, what do i need to do get that high mark? Th reason I need it so high is because i wish to do my masters at Oxford uni. >tl;dr tips and resources on how to get a top mark degree
