Gorgeous New Hubble Image Of Cosmic Butterfly Wings August 26, 2015  | by Justine Alford photo credit:  ESA/Hubble & NASA, Acknowledgement: Judy Schmidt Share on facebook 65.5K   Share on twitter 146   Share on reddit   Share on google_plusone_share   More Sharing Services With so many bewilderingly beautiful examples of these cosmic objects taken over the years, it’s difficult to pick a favorite planetary nebula. But of these stunning scenes, Minkowski's Butterfly has always evoked a sense of awe in me. Never failing, here I am once again hypnotically staring into my computer screen, bedazzled by Hubble’s  latest portrait  of the celestial butterfly. Officially called PN M2-9, the planetary nebula also goes by the slightly more telling name of the Twin Jet Nebula. As you can see, unlike ordinary planetary nebulae that look like colorful bubbles or piercing eyes, M2-9 is different in that it has two distinct trails of material emanating from a central point.

Nanosilver: Naughty or nice? Questions abound about the possible effects of those tiny antibiotic particles that are showing up all over BY  SHARON OOSTHOEK   7:15AM, AUGUST 28, 2015 Silver nanoparticles can confer an array of colors when in solution. The particles in this image can be used to detect diseases. Others are used as antibiotics. But some scientists are beginning to worry that overusing the technology might cause problems.  EMail  Print  Twitter  Facebook  Reddit  Google+ GINGER LAB/UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON Silver is beautiful — and a killer. The shiny white metal is a natural antibiotic. That means it kills bacteria. People have recognized this benefit since ancient times. Wealthy Romans ate using knives, forks and spoons made of silver. They understood that silver helped keep spoiled food from making them sick. In fact, historians think that is how we came to call eating utensils "silverware." Tod

A new genetic breakthrough could be key for a potential obesity “cure”

A new genetic breakthrough could be key for a potential obesity “cure” It's genetic. (Reuters) SHARE WRITTEN BY Tim Spector Professor, King's College London 2 hours ago Nearly  half of all Europeans  are genetically predisposed to obesity. The condition is a worldwide epidemic affecting more than  half a billion people  and rising every year in most countries. Despite this, we know little about the genetic origin of the condition and have no good medical treatment for it  other than bariatric surgery . But now a genetic study seems to have cracked the mystery—raising hopes for more efficient treatment. The global obesity crisis is often blamed on an increasingly sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits. However, studies have shown that  70-80% of the differences  between people in body fat are due to their genes (this is called the heritability). The first large-scale genetic studies for obesity were launched in 2007, after the initial  mapping of t

Three surefire ways to pick a job that actually helps you grow

Three surefire ways to pick a job that actually helps you grow SHARE WRITTEN BY Quora 4 hours ago This question originally appeared on  Quora :  How can I accelerate my personal growth?   Answer  by  Auren Hoffman , LiveRamp CEO. Most smart people out of college grow an average of 10% per year. Which means they are roughly twice as effective seven years after graduating college. That makes sense, as most 29-year-olds make double what they did their first job out of college. But growing at 10% per year is way too slow if you want to accomplish great things. You should be aiming to grow at a rate of at least 25% per year for your first few years out of school (like all things, your rate of growth, the second derivative of skill, will slow over time). To grow quickly, you need a job with the following criteria: You’re surrounded by people who are smarter than you You have an opportunity to fail The company has a history of giving massive responsibility
