Jean Bach dies at 94; made Oscar-nominated jazz documentary

Jean Bach first laid eyes on the astonishing photograph more than a decade after its 57 subjects — all illustrious figures from jazz's golden age — posed on the steps of a Harlem brownstone in the summer of 1958.
The photo eventually became Bach's obsession and the inspiration for "A Great Day in Harlem," a prize-winning, Oscar-nominated 1994 documentary that explains, through interviews and archival footage, how the magical convergence of dozens of New York jazz legends came to be.

Steve job biography.Steven Paul Jobs (February 24, 1955 -- October 5, 2011) was an American businessman and inventor widely recognized as a charismatic pioneer of the personal computer revolution. He was co-founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Apple Inc. Jobs was co-founder and previously served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios; he became a member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company in 2006, following the acquisition of Pixar by Disney. In the late 1970s, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak engineered one of the first commercially successful lines of personal computers, the Apple II series. Jobs directed its aesthetic design and marketing along with A.C. "Mike" Markkula, Jr. and others. In the early 1980s, Jobs was among the first to see the commercial potential of Xerox PARC's mouse-driven graphical user interface, which led to the creation of the Apple Lisa (engineered by Ken Rothmuller and John Couch) and, one year later, of Apple employee Jef Raskin's Macintosh. After losing a power struggle with the board of directors in 1985, Jobs left Apple and founded NeXT, a computer platform development company specializing in the higher-education and business markets. In 1986, he acquired the computer graphics division of Lucasfilm Ltd, which was spun off as Pixar Animation Studios. He was credited in Toy Story (1995) as an executive producer. He remained CEO and majority shareholder at 50.1 percent until its acquisition by The Walt Disney Company in 2006, making Jobs Disney's largest individual shareholder at seven percent and a member of Disney's Board of Directors.

Benefits of Egg for Women Hair

As mentioned already, eggs are very rich in proteins and vitamin B. So, raw eggs when applied on hair help to strengthen it and promote its growth, as hair is basically made of protein. Along with protein, the egg white contains some enzymes that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, which can help to keep the scalp healthy. On the other hand, egg yolk is rich in fats, so it helps to deeply moisturize hair strands.
How to Use Egg for Hair?
Eggs can be used in many different ways to promote hair growth, prevent hair loss and to condition or moisturize the hair. You can use raw eggs alone or mix them with some other natural ingredients like, olive oil, lemon juice, honey, yogurt, castor oil, etc. Addition of these ingredients can enhance the benefits of eggs for hair. If you are considering egg treatment for hair, then here are some recipes for you.
Egg for Hair Conditioning
To use egg for conditioning your hair, you will need 1 or 2 egg yolk, according to the length of your hair and 1 to 2 tablespoon of olive or baby oil.
Benefits of Egg for Hair
First, separate the egg yolk from the egg white and beat it properly. Then add 1 or 2 tablespoon of olive oil or baby oil to it and beat again to mix them completely.
Egg for Hair Loss
Hair loss can be controlled to a great extent by using egg yolk for hair. Mix two egg yolks with about 1 tablespoon of castor oil. Mix both the ingredients properly and then massage it on your hair and scalp. Keep it for sometime, about half an hour, after which rinse the hair with cool water.
Egg for Hair Growth
To use egg for promoting hair growth, you will need two raw eggs, one cup yogurt and 1 tablespoon honey and lemon juice. First beat the eggs and add a cup of yogurt to it. Whip the solution until you get a frothy paste.

First Fluorescent Protein Identified in a Vertebrate Animal

  • What a Plant Knows

    How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? Can it actually feel an insect’s tiny, spindly legs? And how do cherry blossoms know when to bloom? Can they...
    Read More »
The Japanese freshwater eel (Anguilla japonica) has more to offer biologists than a tasty sushi snack. Its muscle fibers produce the first fluorescent protein identified in a vertebrate, researchers report in Cell.
Fluorescent proteins are as standard a tool for cell biologists as wrenches are for mechanics. They do not produce light themselves, but glow when illuminated. The 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded for the discovery and development of such molecules, which are used to tag proteins or to track how genes are expressed. The molecules have been engineered to produce light in a variety of hues and brightnesses, but those discovered until now in nature all came from non-vertebrates, mainly microbes, jellyfish, and corals.
The first clues to the eel protein’s existence came in 2009 when Seiichi Hayashi and Yoshifumi Toda, food chemists studying nutrients in eel at Kagoshima University in Japan, were tracking lipid transport into oily eel tissue and reported that eel muscle fluoresced naturally glowing green when a blue light is shone on it. They then isolated a few fragments of the protein responsible. This intrigued Atsushi Miyawaki, a molecular biologist at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Wako, Japan, who has identified and engineered new properties into fluorescent proteins from jellyfish and corals.
In the latest work, he and his colleagues have identified the gene that codes for the molecule, and have named the new protein UnaG, after the Japanese unagi, the Japanese word for freshwater eel that is familiar to sushi lovers worldwide.
“I don't think anyone would have thought that eels would have such a bright fluorescent protein,” says Robert Campbell, a protein engineer at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. And UnaG is in a class of its own, he says. “It's totally different” from other fluorescent proteins. “There's not anything you can point to that's the same.”
For example, instead of producing light with a 'chromophore' that is part of the protein sequence, as the classical Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) does, UnaG fluoresces when it binds a naturally occurring small molecule called bilirubin, a breakdown product of hemoglobin used in hospital tests for decades to assess liver function and diagnose diseases such as jaundice.
UnaG is also unusual because, unlike GFP, it fluoresces brightly even when oxygen levels in cells are low. This could be useful for visualizing anaerobic areas inside cancerous tumors, says Campbell.
Aglow under the sea
In 2007, a different group of researchers found a fluorescent protein in the lancelet, a tiny somewhat eel-like marine creature closely related to vertebrates. But that protein is in the same class as those found in corals and jellyfish.
Japanese freshwater eels mature in rivers and travel far out to sea to spawn, and UnaG may help them with long-distance migrations by playing a role in muscle function. European and American freshwater eels (Anguilla anguilla and Anguilla rostrata) also migrate long distances, and the Miyawaki and his colleagues found that these eels, too, make UnaG. Young Japanese eels, which migrate from sea to rivers, produce the protein in abundance, so that they glow beautifully when illuminated with a blue light, says Miyawaki.
The team showed that UnaG could be used to measure bilirubin in human serum and they suggest that this approach could lead to simpler, more sensitive tests requiring smaller blood samples, says Miyawaki.

Biggest Cyber Attack in History. Cybersecurity Pioneer Narus Asks: "Are You Safe?"

It's funny how things work. Earlier this week I was interviewing the team at Narus. The company, an independent subsidiary of Boeing and more about digital, less about massive bodies of steel,  is a pioneer in cybersecurity. Cybersecurity, the practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack or damage.
Narus-logo-socialmarketingfellaI was asking the company's president, John Trobough, "As a consumer, why should I care?" I mean, these big companies have money to throw at this kind of stuff, so I'm sure they've figured it out. Besides, what do I care if some chicken nugget-producing enterprise gets hacked? Or if some big bucks mobile company has a security breech when a clever employee outsources his work and watches cat videos instead? Some of those videos are pretty good.
The very next day the world sustained what many touted as being the "biggest cyber attack in history."
It was, if fact, big. Mashable writes, "Kaspersky Labs, a leading security research group, called it 'one of the largest DDoS operations to date.'" It's origins were a conflict between Spamhaus, a European organization that keeps tabs on spammers and Cyberbunker, a Dutch hosting company accused of housing them. In the end, the attack severely affected the websites it was targeted at, and many Internet users in Europe and North America found the Internet suddenly slowed or ground to a halt.
On the whole, though, the global Internet as a whole was not impacted to the expected extent. You see, it's not necessarily a "massive," global cyber attack that we, as individuals should be concerned about. It's the potential smaller, personal ones. As a 2012 Norton Cybercrime report outlines, these consumer attacks are costing us.

Sweet Healthy Summer Weight Loss Foods

It’s just easier to make better food choices in summertime, when heavy, high-calorie dishes seem less appealing. With all those temptations, it’s definitely easy to forget about your weight loss program and healthy nutritional plan. Just in time for swimsuit season, here’s a list of delicious foods that’ll help you lose weight without sacrificing taste.

The Best Summer Weight Loss Foods

  • Watermelon: Who doesn’t love diving into a crisp, juicy slice of watermelon when it’s hot outside? Also, get your daily water intake since half of the watermelon comes from water! Sowatermelon for weight loss is perfect fruit.
  • Pineapple: This sweet tropical fruit is the perfect ingredient for summer smoothies and juices. As an anti-inflammatory super food, pineapple can help reduce swelling and in turn, you’ll have a flatter belly.
  • Rosemary: Flavor your meal with rosemary instead of butter or sour cream to protect your heart from saturated fat and your waistline from excess pounds.
  • Salads are refreshing, nutritious and very versatile! There are so many different ways to create a salad that you’ll never run out of options. Fruits, nuts, and cooked meats can be added; it’s not advised to add cheese though if you’re trying to lose weight.
  • Plum Pick: Whether eaten whole, dried or pureed into sauces, plums are low in calories and a good source of both dietary fibers and Vitamin C. Plus, they can help suppress appetite thanks to their low glycemic load.
  • Chilled Soups: Chilled soups like gazpacho or cucumber-dill that contain lots of chunky vegetables are a great way to start a meal.
  • Bitter Melon: This bitter and slightly sweet melon is typically found in Asian markets and helps improve digestion and lower blood sugar. Too much sugar in the blood stream sends a signal to the pancreas to release the fat storing hormone insulin.
  • Grilled vegetables are really great for barbecues, perfect straight from the grill. You can grill practically any vegetables and they’ll taste just fantastic! The best oils to grill them with are either extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil.
  • Peachy: Why pass up dessert when the “stone fruits” of summer (think peaches and nectarines) can make for a guilt-free sweet treat? Tossed on the grill, peaches and nectarines get even more flavorful as the heat caramelizes their natural sugars.
  • Mangoes are high in fiber, magnesium, antioxidants, and iron (making them a great snack for women who may have iron deficiency or anemia), says Batayneh. “And because mangoes aid in digestion, you want to focus on eating the fruit versus just drinking the juice.

Motorcycles Faster and Safter

The quickest way through the traffic is on a motorcycle.But while cars have been getting safer and more economical, motorcycles have gone the other way.Better and  may be exciting but fuel economy has suffered. A typical modern super-bike has an engine as powerful as most cars, and get no more than 14km per liter.
Meanwhile little progress has been made towards creating a safer bike or one that protects the rider from the cold and wet. A rider simply gets colder and wetter and uses more fuel on bike than in car, says British motorcyclist enthusiast Royce Creasey, who designed his own improved machine the voyager.
now the big manufacturers are beginning to take the hint, with a new generation of machines that provide protection, greater safety and fresh thinking about steering and body work.Steering is the key to improving a motorcycle handling.Traditional front forks are designed to absorb bumps  and to steer. Separating suspension from steering could be answer many engineers believe.

The BMW C1

a prototype machine protects the rider from the weather with a full roof and the option of fitting side panels for long journeys, anti lock brakes and an air bag can be fitted and there is space for luggage.Most car journeys are short and average of just 6 km and are made alone perfect for a motorcycle.
The safety of C1 Is provided by a strong aluminum space frame, made of tubes welded together in a crash , this would distort in a controlled.

Using iPads at bedtime can lead to poor night s sleep

London: Using tablet computers just before going to bed can lead to a poor night`s sleep due to the suppression of a sleep-inducing chemical, a new study has found.
The study found that a large number of people are taking their tablets to bed with them to surf the web, check Facebook or email before switching off the light.
Researchers, however, have warned that the blueish light emitted by the screens can stop users getting a good night`s sleep, `The Telegraph` reported.
It is because this type of light mimics daylight, convincing the brain that it is still daytime.
Blue light suppresses production of a brain chemical called melatonin, which helps us fall sleep. This is because our brains have evolved to be wakeful during daylight hours, the report said.
By contrast, light which is more orange or red in tone does not suppress melatonin production, perhaps because our brains recognise it as a cue that the day is ending.
Neurologists have known for years that staring at screens late in the evening can disrupt sleep, be it televisions, computers or mobile phones.
However, because mobiles and tablets are by nature portable – not to say addictive – more people are taking them into the bedroom.
Users also tend to hold these gadgets much closer to their eyes than a computer or television screen.
Researchers from Lighting Research Centre, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York, warn that looking at tablet displays for more than two hours “leads to a suppression of our natural melatonin levels as the devices emit optical radiation at short wavelengths”.
“Although turning off devices at night is the ultimate solution, it is recommended that if these devices are used at night displays are dimmed as much as possible and that the time spent on them before bed should be limited,” they said.
They drew their conclusions after measuring melatonin levels in 13 volunteers, after they had spent time viewing iPads at full brightness at a distance of 10 inches, for two hours.

Who is Robin Hood

Who has not heard of robin hood? spelled Robyn Hode in older manuscripts,he has acquire such fame that today all kind heated bandits are known as Robin Hoods, and yet no one deven knows who the real robin hood was, or even if he existed at all.
Who is Robin Hood,Robin Hood life history,Robin Hood reality
A document of 1239 mentions a yorkshireman describes as Robin hood Outlaw, Tales of Robin the Out law were circulating by the mid of 13th century and the first written reference appears in poem vision of piers plowman 1378.
In the early poems printed more than a century later, robin is more like a real medieval bandit. He kills bloodily and enjoys it, Slaying guy of Gisborne, he sticks his head on the end of his bow but with time as characters and adventures were added by writers like sir Walter Scott as in the novel Ivanhoe, Robin was transformed into romantic figure we recognize today.

LongBow Hotshots

Today Robin hood is famous as deadly shot with the long bow . In fact when the robin Hood legend began, longbows were rarely used.They begin to appear in legal records as favourite weapon of Robbers from the mid of 13th century onward.Later they played a vital role in England's victories at crecy 1346 and agincourt 1415.The Longbow was much cheaper than cross bow .It was also quicker and easier to use too but needed great skill to be used effectively.

Saudi Prince Fahd Spent 15 Million Euros at Disneyland

Paris: A Saudi prince spent 15 million euros ($19.5 million) for three days of fun at Disneyland near Paris to celebrate his degree, the group that runs the theme park said on Monday.
Prince Fahd al-Saud booked entire areas of the park from May 22 to 24 for his 60-odd guests. The festivities included tailor-made events involving “rare Disney characters,” Euro Disney told AFP.
Special security was put in place for the prince, one of the park’s top customers, it added.
The theme park attracted 16 million visitors last year but Euro Disney has not made any profits since it was set up 20 years ago.
In the six months to March, the group had a net loss of 89.1 million euros compared with a loss of 11.8 million euros in the same period last year.

How a Rocket Engine Works

A rocket engine is not like a conventional engine.  A conventional engine ignites fuel which then pushes on some pistons, and it turns a crank.  Therefore, it uses rotational energy to turn the wheels of the vehicle.  Electric motors also use rotational energy to turn fans, and spin disks.  A rocket engine does not use rotational energy to run.  They are reaction engines.  The principle of it is that the fuel contained within the body of the rocket goes through a chemical reaction as it comes out of the end of the rocket.  This reaction then causes thrust and propels the rocket forward.  This is an example of one of Sir Isaac Newton's fundamental laws.  "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction" (How Rocket Engines Work.)

                                                         
This is a representation of Newton's law.
(http://www.howstuffworks.com/rocket.htm/)



This is a picture of a space shuttle rocket engine during a test burn.
Notice the blue flame of the fuel igniting.  This cause thrust, and pushes
the rocket in the opposite direction.
(http://www.howstuffworks.com/rocket.htm/)


    The strength of a rocket is measured in pounds of thrust.  A pound of thrust is the amount of force required to keep a one pound object stationary against gravity (How Rocket Engines Work.)  In order to generate this thrust, rockets burn one of two types of fuel, solid fuel or liquid fuel.  Because of this fact, rockets are often classified by the type of fuel that they burn.

    Solid fuel rockets are the first rockets to be recorded in history.  They were first invented in ancient China, and have been used ever since (How Rocket Engines Work.)  The chemical make up of a solid rocket fuel is very similar to the chemical makeup of gunpowder.  However, the exact chemical make up is not the same.  To make a rocket work, a fast burning nonexclusive fuel is needed.  Gunpowder explodes, making it unusable.  So the chemical composition was altered to make it burn fast, but not explode.  One of the biggest problems with solid fuel rocket engines is that once started, the reaction cannot be stopped or restarted.  This makes them considered uncontrollable.  Therefore, solid fuel rockets are more widely used for missiles, or as booster rockets.

                                                                                     

This is a diagram of how A solid fuel rocket engine looks before and after ignition.
The solid fuel is in dark green, and then in orange as it is ignited to propel the rocket.

Liquid Fuel Rockets

    The first liquid fuel rocket was produced by Robert Goddard in 1926 (How Rocket Engines Work.)  The idea of liquid fueled rocket is easy to grasp.  A fuel and an oxidizer ,in Goddards case he used gasoline and liquid oxygen, are pumped into a combustion chamber.  A reaction takes place, and it expands propelling the rocket forward.  The expanding gas is then forced through a nozzle that makes them accelerate to a higher velocity (How Rocket Engines Work.)

What is inside the Camera and how it works

A camera is a device designed specially to record images on light sensitive film. There are many different types of cameras but they all work in much same way. The single lens reflex or slr camera shown here a an example of one of the most popular type.
When a camera user wishes to take photograph or shot almost exact image that will be recorded on the film can be seen in the view finder. At the right moment shutter is opened by pressing a button known as shutter release.If  the camera is an SLR , the mirror flip up out of the way, allowing the light to pass through  the lens and reach the film.
The  lens bends the rays of light so that they produce a sharp image on the film. The amount the light rays have to bent or refracted, depends on how far away the objects are from camera.Refraction is adjusted by rotating the focusing ring on the lens.Some camera use a fixed focus lens that is suitable for photographing  both near and distant objects.

Smart Cars driving made easier, Future cars

One of the greatest problem with car to is finding somewhere to put them. Renault concept car, the matra zoom, gets around this problem by making itself smaller, trucking its rear wheels under itself for parking and stretching them out again for the open road.

Matra zoom, Future car pictures
Other manufacturer have turned to electronics. Volkswagen concept car , the futura is fitted with laser and ultrasound sensor to measure the space and to park the car.
Route planner will linked to a central computer will guide the driver. In a strange area , the planners will suggest the best. At home, where routes are familiar, they will warn of road works, congestion and accidents. System like these have already been tested and could be common within about five years. The dashboard of the future will be designed to provide lots of clear information.

Speed, fuel level, and warning of danger ahead may be shown as head displays, on the screen close to driver line of sight.
On board computer will control many parts of car, including the suspension and anti lock brakes. Communication link will provide driver information.
Once on motor way , cars will be driven automatically a few meter apart using sensors to prevent crashes. This technique called platooning and the already tested in California is safer and make much better use of roads.
