A membrane consisting of polymer fibres and proteins makes a novel filter for tiny, nano-scaled particles in aqueous solutions. The result of such a research, which was done by Professor Mady Elbahri and his team from the Institute of Material Science at Kiel University (KU) and the Institute of Polymer Research at Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG), has recently been published as the cover article in the current issue (21.11.2012) of Advanced Functional Materials ("Smart Metal–Polymer Bionanocomposites as Omnidirectional Plasmonic Black Absorber Formed by Nanofluid Filtration"). A nanofluid, which means a colloidal suspension of e.g. metal nanoparticles in water, passes easily through commonly used macroporous polymeric membranes. The particles are too small to be held using hole diameters between three and four micrometers. In addition, the particles would block smaller sieve openings rapidly. Hence, pressure would be necessary to filter out the fluid. In order to solve these problems, Elbahri and his team biofunctionalized their membrane and added a commercially available protein to the fibres. “We found out that the protein undergoes a conformational change under water, and its ability to capture all the metal nanoparticles during the filtration process is activated”, explains Elbahri. “This is a breakthrough”, adds Co-author Dr. Shahin Homaeigohar. “The same principle will hopefully enable us, to filter biomolecules and organisms out of waste water.” From filtration to solar thermal energy When the nano sieve captures metal particles such as gold, another application is at hand, because, no other method has succeeded in dispersing the particles that well. “This result was unexpected”, says Elbahri. “Under dry conditions, the membrane shows the color of the metal, in this case the red of the gold nanoparticles”. When the membrane gets wet, it becomes black. “Then, it acts as an omnidirectional perfect black absorber, which can be used as a solar absorber.” Elbahri adds: “Indeed we bridge the gaps between several disciplines, chemistry, physics, bioscience and materials science that is, and the Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering group has now initiated the first step toward intradisciplinarity of Nanoscience.” Application as a virus and bio-filter The nano sieve will allow filtering very small particles or biomolecules and organisms such as viruses out of water. The scientists involved have already patented their innovation, a bio-nano-composite, in Europe. Another patent for the USA is . Besides its application in water filtration, the nano sieve shows great potentials as solar absorber and as a catalyser. “All in all, the result is a breakthrough towards the design of an operative filtration process, as a new route for the fabrication of functional materials, and offers commercially attractive efficiencies at a low cost”, says Elbahri.

John the baptist while imprisoned sent some of his disciples to Jesus asking are you the one, or should we look for another .
Who is the man or women who over comes in this life, those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ
Jesus never existed?!?
This is a good one. I think it's safe to assume that you don't accept the evidence in the form of prophecies in the Old Testament or the 27 books of the New Testament (even though they were written by eyewitnesses, except those written by Saul/Paul). If that is indeed the case, you should look up a man named Simon Greenleaf. The greatest expert on evidence that the world had ever known. When Greenleaf spoke on legal evidence that settled the matter. He had one inviolable rule: you never make your mind about a matter before first considering the evidence. As a Jew he was not a believer in Christ. After a student in one of his classes asked if he had considered the evidence for Christ he was shocked to realize that no, in fact he hadn't. In this regard he had not followed his own principle. After examining every thread of evidence he concluded that if the evidence for the resurrection of Christ were presented to any unbiased jury in the world, they would have to conclude that Christ actually did rise from the dead. He became a follower of Christ.
But I digress...
There is no historical evidence for Christ??? You sure about that?
There are at least 19 pagan writers who refer to Christ. Here are some examples: - Tacitus - Suetonius - Pliny the Younger - Epictetus - Lucian - Aristides - Galen - Lampridius - Dio Cassius - Zosimus - Celsus - Porphyry - Heracles There are up to 39 extra biblical sources that mention Christ.
New Testament manuscript evidence: 5,000 Greek manuscripts, 10,000 Latin, 9,000 other - totaling over 24,000 manuscript copies or portions.
In 62 A.D. the book of Acts was finished. Acts was written by Luke after he finished his gospel, which had to be written in the late 50's. All scholars say that Luke was not the first gospel written but rather Mark, and possibly Matthew. So you have two other accounts written before the end of the second decade after the death of Christ. So within 15 years you have writings circulating about the life of Christ by those who experienced it themselves. That's good scholarship. You have to also consider that it was common for those in that time period to memorize MASSIVE amounts of writings, such as the Old Testament scriptures, and be able to repeat them word for word. It was part of their culture. For his closest followers to put in writing the teachings they had been hearing day in and day out for 3 years straight would have been very easy to do with little variation from the original words spoken.
Now, let's look at some other examples of ancient documents that are widely accepted as historically accurate. - Plato wrote his works from 427-347 B.C. The earliest manuscript copy of Plato's writing is from 900 A.D., 1200 years after Plato's death. And there are only 7 copies of these manuscripts in existence. - Julius Caesar lived from 100-44 B.C. and the earliest manuscript copy of his writings dates to 900 A.D., putting our best evidence of Caesar 1000 years after his death. 10 Copies in existence. - The same goes for the writers Tacitus, Herodotus, Suetonius, Thucydides, all were written 800-1300 years before the earliest manuscript evidence, and ranging from 8-20 copies of those manuscripts. - Homer's Iliad has the richest manuscript evidence in existence with 643 copies and the earliest of those within 350 years of the original writing.
Compare the above examples with the New Testament manuscript evidence. 24,000 manuscripts. Granted, there are no original manuscripts of the original writings, but through the writings of the early church fathers and the findings of the Dead Sea Scrolls from Qumran, we can be confident that the original writings have been preserved (the Dead Sea Scrolls represent every Old Testament book except Esther, with word for word identity in more than 95% of the cases, with the other 5% variation consisting of slips of the pen or spelling).
The End Of Condoms? Study Finds Semen Makes Women Happy And Smarter
There are so many horrible HORRIBLE puns to be made here it’s difficult to know where to start. As if women weren’t under enough pressure to go bareback or…ermmm… ingest…now they’ll have to put up with concern trolling? “But baby! It’s good for you! It’s like medicine, I swear!” Unfortunately, it looks like that might actually be the case. It’s a very sticky situation as Gawker explains:
Using data obtained from an anonymous survey of 293 females on campus, Gordon Gallup and Rebecca Burch, working alongside University of Liverpool psychologist Steven Platek, were able to determine that women who engage in oral sex or have unprotected sex on a regular basis were happier than those who practiced safe sex.
If there’s a better way to see men cheer up than by spreading this information, I can’t think of it. To be sure, it’s bitter news for many women to swallow. Gawker continues:
Of all their findings, perhaps the most interesting was the discovery that sexually active women who usually or always used condoms were on par in their unhappiness with women who abstained from sex altogether. Gallup and Burch also determined that women with a significant amount of “seminal plasma” in their system have improved concentration, and excel over their semen-deficient counterparts in performing cognitive tasks.
“Seminal plasma?” I can’t…I just…I…I got nothing. I’m shooting literary blanks, as it were. How could you possibly top that?
The patient didn't touch a thing, but could read Braille letters downloaded into his brain. By Rebecca Boyle Posted 11.26.2012 at 1:00 pm 1 Comment
Reading Braille Wikimedia Commons
A new eye prosthetic can download electrical data right into a blind person’s retina, bypassing a camera and placing digital information right onto the nerve cells. A blind patient who used the device could read Braille patterns in less than a second, according to Swiss researchers.
Technology, Rebecca Boyle, artificial retina, braille, eyes, ocular diseases, ocular implants, retinal implants The study used an ocular prosthetic called the Argus II, which is approved for commercial use in Europe and has been implanted into about 50 people, according to researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne. The implant uses a glasses-mounted camera, a wearable computer processor to translate camera data into electrical pulses, and a grid of 60 electrodes implanted directly onto the retina. The device uses the camera to collect visual info and translates it into signals the retina can interpret. It’s basically the same technique as a more familiar cochlear implant, which sends electrical pulses into the auditory nerves so that deaf people can hear. In this new study, the researchers didn’t use the camera. Instead, they used the electrodes to stimulate patterns of activity onto the retina. They narrowed the experiment down to six out of the 60 electrodes and pulsed them to create visual approximations of individual Braille letters. Instead of feeling raised dots with his fingers, the patient perceived the letters with his retina. Led by Lauritzen Thomas Zaccarin of Second Sight, the device developer, the researchers came up with short two to four-letter words, stimulated one letter at a time. The patient identified 89 percent of single letters, 80 percent of two-letter words and 70 percent of four-letter words, the team says in a new paper. “This work suggests that text can successfully be stimulated and read as visual braille in retinal prosthesis patients,” the researchers say. More work needs to be done to refine the device, but the researchers think it could work as a “sensory substitute” for reading written language. Their paper is published in Frontiers In Neuroprosthetics.
Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.
After Obama was elected in his first term as president the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave insightful and helpful advice to help the world economy and saying the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.
Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
Putin said regarding the military, "...instead of solving the problem, militarization pushes it to a deeper level. It draws away from the economy immense financial and material resources, which could have been used much more efficiently elsewhere."
Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion.
Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:
"...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.
The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.
There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.
Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.
During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."
President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda.
"We must seek support in the moral values that have ensured the progress of our civilization. Honesty and hard work, responsibility and faith in our strength are bound to bring us success."- Vladimir Putin
The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its' flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free. Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law.
Let's give American voters the benefit of the doubt and say it was all voter fraud and not ignorance or stupidity in electing a man who does not even know what to do and refuses help from Russia when there was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Instead we'll say it's true that the Communists usage of electronic voting was just a plan to manipulate the vote. Soros and his ownership of the company that counts the US votes in Spain helped put their puppet in power in the White House. According to the Huffington Post, residents in all 50 states have filed petitions to secede from the Unites States. We'll say that these Americans are hostages to the Communists in power. How long will their government reign tyranny upon them?
Russia lost its' civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once "Land of the Free" remain the United Socialist States of America? Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie! You know the song you hippies. Sing it! Don't you remember? The 1971 hit song by American song writer Don McLean:
"And, as I watched him on the stage my hands were clenched in fists of rage.
No angel born in Hell could break that Satan's spell
And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite, I saw...
Satan laughing with delight the day the music died
He was singing, bye bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry
Them good ol' boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing...
My #1 Celebrity Birthday Person for November 26th is Rich Little (I) (74) 1938 Born: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada / Birth name: Richard Caruthers Little The son of an Ottawa, Ontario, doctor / Trade mark: Celebrity Impersonator Rich Little got his start just like almost every other comic of his time: the night clubs. Rich was a very popular comic in these clubs, but if there was one thing Rich was best known for, it was impersonations. Rich studied the voices of many stars his whole life, stars like 'James Stewart' , Johnny Carson' , Don Rickles, Dean Martin, Truman Capote and George Burns. In the late 60's, Rich was dubbed ‘the best impressionist in the world.’ During the 70s, however, a rivalry started beginning between him and fellow impressionist Frank Gorshin, who is 5 years older than Rich. But ultimately, Rich overpowered Gorshin, and remained the best impressionist in the world. In 1973, Rich became more associated with Dean Martin and made countless appearances on the 'Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts', honoring most of the people he impersonated. Besides impressions, Rich also had successful appearances as a narrator in many stories, made many appearances in TV series, and hosted many TV series. His acting career wasn't as successful as his impressions, but he did have a great talent. After the 80s, Rich calmed down, and moved away from the limelight. In 1998, Rich took a look back at his most remembered moments of his career: his appearances on the 'Dean Martin Roasts,' in an infomercial to promote the roast videos. Rich says he will ALWAYS remember those moments. Spouses: Marie Marotta (15 October 2003 - present) Jeannette Markey (29 October 1994 - 11 February 1997) (divorced) Jeanne Worden (1971 - 1989) (divorced) 1 child His wife, Jeanne, was Joey Bishop's secretary. Achieved the rank of Queen's Scout in the Boy Scouts of Canada. Active in several charities benefiting children, including the Juvenile Diabetes fund and the Children's Miracle Network. Comedian and celebrity impressionist. Among his many comic impressions have included fellow comedians (e.g., Johnny Carson and Robin Williams) movie stars (Jack Nicholson, Vincent Price, Sylvester Stallone, Jimmy Stewart and John Wayne), fictional TV characters (Big Bird and Edith Bunker) and every U.S. president since John F. Kennedy (and their major challengers, including H. Ross Perot and Sen. Bob Dole). ‘Sink Pink’ (1965) (voice) as The Pink Panther. Movie debut at age 34 in ‘The Other Side of the Wind’ (1972) as Otterlake. 2008: Last 2 movie roles: ‘The Brainiacs.com’ (2000) as The Judge & the latest ‘The Presidents’ (2003) (V) as JFK / Johnson / Nixon / Ford / Carter / Reagan / Bush / Clinton / W Bush.

Near-death experiences occur when the soul leaves the nervous system and enters the universe, claim two quantum physics experts Ground-breaking theory holds that quantum substances form the soul They are part of the fundamental structure of the universe By DAMIEN GAYLE PUBLISHED: 05:38 EST, 30 October 2012 | UPDATED: 06:26 EST, 30 October 2012 Comments (683) Share
Life after death: Dr Stuart Hameroff, Professor Emeritus at the University of Arizona, advanced the theory on a television documentary A near-death experience happens when quantum substances which form the soul leave the nervous system and enter the universe at large, according to a remarkable theory proposed by two eminent scientists. According to this idea, consciousness is a program for a quantum computer in the brain which can persist in the universe even after death, explaining the perceptions of those who have near-death experiences. Dr Stuart Hameroff, Professor Emeritus at the Departments of Anesthesiology and Psychology and the Director of the Centre of Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona, has advanced the quasi-religious theory. It is based on a quantum theory of consciousness he and British physicist Sir Roger Penrose have developed which holds that the essence of our soul is contained inside structures called microtubules within brain cells. They have argued that our experience of consciousness is the result of quantum gravity effects in these microtubules, a theory which they dubbed orchestrated objective reduction (Orch-OR). Thus it is held that our souls are more than the interaction of neurons in the brain. They are in fact constructed from the very fabric of the universe - and may have existed since the beginning of time.
Hidden Doggerland underworld uncovered in North Sea
A map of the UK with Doggerland marked as red Continue reading the main story A huge area of land which was swallowed up into the North Sea thousands of years ago has been recreated and put on display by scientists.
Doggerland was an area between Northern Scotland, Denmark and the Channel Islands.
It was believed to have been home to tens of thousands of people before it disappeared underwater.
Now its history has been pieced together by artefacts recovered from the seabed and displayed in London.
The 15-year-project has involved St Andrews, Dundee and Aberdeen universities. The fossilised remains of a mammoth uncovered from the area The results are on display at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London until 8 July.
The story behind Doggerland, a land that was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC, has been organised by Dr Richard Bates at St Andrews University.
Dr Bates, a geophysicist, said "Doggerland was the real heartland of Europe until sea levels rose to give us the UK coastline of today. "We have speculated for years on the lost land's existence from bones dredged by fishermen all over the North Sea, but it's only since working with oil companies in the last few years that we have been able to re-create what this lost land looked like.
"When the data was first being processed, I thought it unlikely to give us any useful information, however as more area was covered it revealed a vast and complex landscape.
"We have now been able to model its flora and fauna, build up a picture of the ancient people that lived there and begin to understand some of the dramatic events that subsequently changed the land, including the sea rising and a devastating tsunami." Dr Richard Bates at work building up a picture of the ancient landmass Ancient tree stumps, flint used by humans and the fossilised remains of a mammoth helped form a picture of how the landscape may have looked.
Researchers also used geophysical modelling of data from oil and gas companies.
Findings suggest a picture of a land with hills and valleys, large swamps and lakes with major rivers dissecting a convoluted coastline. As the sea rose the hills would have become an isolated archipelago of low islands.
By examining the fossil record (such as pollen grains, microfauna and macrofauna) the researchers could tell what kind of vegetation grew in Doggerland and what animals roamed there. Using this information, they were able to build up a model of the "carrying capacity" of the land and work out roughly how many humans could have lived there.
Ehud Barak has withdrawn from the Knesset elections and will resign as Defense Minister after the elections. Is this a statement that Avodah finally returns to its roots and rejects the apartheid policies of the Likudniks? For anyone who supports the new Palestinian State this has to be good news.
