¿Qué lindo es este pequeño amigo? ¿Sabes lo que es? . Las sepias son parte de la clase Cephalopoda; La misma clase que incluye pulpos, calamares y nautilos. Son fácilmente identificables dado que tienen 8 brazos y 2 tentáculos adicionales. Se encuentran entre los invertebrados más inteligentes y tienen la mayor proporción de cerebro-cuerpo de todos los invertebrados identificados. Tienen un hueso de sepia singular que utilizan como un órgano de flotación para controlar dónde cuelgan en la columna de agua. . Cuando se trata de la reproducción de estos curiosos animales, el tradicional enfrentamiento masculino contra masculino se observa igual que en muchos otros animales en todo el mundo. Las sepias tienen múltiples estrategias de apareamiento, pero la más singular es el camuflaje. Se han observado machos pequeños disfrazándose de hembras para pasar junto a un macho más grande para aparearse con una hembra. Ellos logran este truco cambiando el color de su piel y, a veces, ¡incluso fingen estar sosteniendo un saco de huevos! . Las sepias han sido apodadas "camaleones del mar" debido a su increíble capacidad para cambiar la coloración de la piel, la textura de la piel y la postura. .

One of the most fascinating features of rays is their use of underwater flight to get around. This type of swimming is called rajiform locomotion, named after skates and rays. This type of swimming is different than most fishes because it relies on the vertical movement of the fish's elongated pectoral (arm) fins. They generate movement up and down to push them forward. .

A kako se vi oslobađate stresa? 💆 Istraživanje sprovedeno 2015. Godine pokazalo je da su najizloženiji stresu studenti! Ispitivana ciljna grupa bili studenti medicine, stomatologije i raznih grana inženjerstva. Pokazalo se da su sve grupe studenata gotovo svakodnevno izložene stresu tokom studiranja. Međutim, izgleda da su budući inženjeri manje izloženi stresu tokom studija, u odnosu na studente medicine i stomatologije! Potrebna su detaljnija istraživanja kako bi se utvrdio uticaj okoline na razvoj stresa, ali je zabeleženo da manjak ispitnih rokova izaziva porast stresa! Tehnike učenja i raspored ispita trebalo bi prilagoditi potrebama studenata. Takođe, život u studentskom domu može često da prouzrokuje stres, pa su stoga potrebne redovne kontrole poštovanja kućnog reda. Neophodna je i pravilna ishrana, jer znamo da studenti vrlo često jedu brzu hranu koja moze dovesti do niza zdravstvenih problema. Ovo se naravno odnosi na sve, bez obzira na starost i nivo obrazovanja. Ne zaboravite, zdravlje je najvažnije! Hranite se zdravo, uvrstite fizičku aktivnost u dnevni ritam, spavajte dovoljno i okružite sebe pozitivnim ljudima! 🙆🐝🌹🌸 #stress #stres #avoidstress #studenti #sci #scifacts #funfacst #science

⚠️QUANTUM COMPUTER - POST 3⚠️ ——————————————————— In the last post we viewed two fundamental properties of #qubits , the fundamental units of #quantumcomputers 💻. . In order to have a qubit, we need a two-state quantum system. This means that we need a physical system which can be in any superposition of two states (such as 0 and 1). . Many physical systems accomplish this condition ✅, such as electrons 💫and atomic nucleus 🔘(which can have ⬇️ or ⬆️ spin) or photons (having ↔️ or ↕️ polarization). . These two-state quantum systems are common in nature 🌎 and have already been used to produce the first prototypes of quantum computers 🖥. However, with the “fragility” of the quantum world (a.k.a. Quantum Decoherence), qubits must be highly “protected” ☔️ to maintain superposition and entanglement while allowing us to access the information in them. . When a qubit is not completely isolated from the environment, the quantum information is lost into the surroundings over time ⏳🔋. Thus, to build a long-lasting qubit, changes in temperature, vibrations, magnetic fields, etc., must be minimized 📉 by using complex “shells” 🛡. Currently, the world record of a qubit being in superposition is of 39 minutes⏱, what is enough to calculate >2M operations😱! Theoretically, with a 300 qubits system in superposition, one could map all the information of the universe from the Big Bang🌌. However, increasing the number of qubits📈 also fastens the loss of coherence📉🤪. . Currently, big tech companies are struggling with the development of stable and useful quantum computers🤓. In numbers, #ibm launched a 50-qubit working quantum computer (pic 1), while recently #google announced their 72-qubit processor named #bristlecone (pic 2) and #dwave one quantum computer with 2000 qubits (pic 3)! . Only time will tell us how do this computers evolve🧐, and how will science advance with such a computational power 💥🤩! ———————————————————— If you liked this series on QC, please leave us a comment and let’s thank @joebbacon (♥️💏) for producing or reviewing this content 😊

⚠️QUANTUM COMPUTER - POST 2⚠️ ———————————————————— In the last post we talked about transistors, the fundamental components of logic gates 🚪! . Logic gates work with units called "bits", which can take two unique values, 0️⃣ and 1️⃣. The main idea 💡 behind Quantum Computing is to use "qubits" or quantum bits instead of classical bits (photo 1). . Like bits, qubits can take the values 0️⃣ and 1️⃣, but they can also be in a combination of both😦, for example 35% 0️⃣ and 65% 1️⃣, what is known as the superposition of quantum states. . This property is extremely powerful 👊🏽, it allows us to have a huge amount of combinations of 0s and 1s simultaneously (see photo 2)! Well, as long as they're not observed‼️ When they are measured, those quantum states collapse into ordinaries 0s and 1s, which we can read and manipulate as usual 🤗. . All of this wouldn't be much useful if it wasn't for another property of quantum states: the entanglement 🖇. When we have two quantum states entangled 🖇we can instantaneously determine properties of one just by measuring the other📏🔍. . These two properties of qubits, #superposition and #entanglement , can be a key factor to carry out certain computational tasks 💻 that would never be accomplished using classical computers, no matter how powerful we make them‼️ . The ability to carry out these tasks wouldn't only suppose a colossal advance for #physics 👨🏻‍🔬 and #computerscience 👩🏼‍💻, it could also revolutionize fields like #chemistry ⚗️and #molecularbiology 🔬due to some simulations that could be performed 👾. ———————————————————— In the next post, we will see how can we build these quantum bits🏗, what are the difficulties at the time of taking an actual quantum computer to the real world 🌎 and what is the current state of their development 🛠.

⚠️ QUANTUM COMPUTER - POST 1 ⚠️ ———————————————————— Transistors are the main components of our electronic devices 📱 💻. . They act as electricity switches ⚡️ ⏯ that regulate the flow of electrons 💫. With them we can build logic gates to perform the most basic arithmetic operations inside computers 🖥. . According to Moore's law, every 2️⃣ years the number of transistors in the microprocessors is doubled📈, since their size is being constantly reduced 📉. . As these electronic switches approach the size of a few atoms 🔅, we dive into the complexity of the quantum world ⚠️. . At this scale, the tunnel effect (which I explained in a previous post ‼️) causes some electrons to randomly cross this switch when they shouldn’t🚫, causing small computing errors that can have great consequences😰. . However, a couple of decades ago it was proposed take advantage of quantum mechanics properties ✅ to build a new type of computers 😯. ———————————————————— In the next post we will see how superposition and quantum entanglement can help build quantum computers 🤗. . If you have any doubt just ask in the comments 😁‼️

The skeleton is made up of bones, cartilage, joints, and ligaments. Humans are born with approximately 300-350 bones. However, as a person grows, some bones fuse together over time to form a single bone. By the time a person reaches adulthood (s)he will have 206 bones. The skeleton gives the body structure and movement. But bones do more: All of them produce blood cells, store minerals, and release hormones that are needed for bodily functions. . . . #skeleton #bones #scifacts #human #anatomy #growingup #cartilage #ligaments #newborn #scienceisfun #think #delvedeep #think #lovescience #hormones #explore #discover #life #skeletal #study #facts #think #bloodcells #student #scienceclass #science #scientific #knowmore #learning #bonemarrow

Human eye and camera lenses both focus an inverted image onto a light-sensitive surface. A camera focuses this image onto film or a sensor chip. Your eyes focus it on the retina on the inside of your eyeball. But what does resolution mean for the human eye? Well, in order to create a screen, so to speak, with a picture so sharp and clear that the individual pixels can't be distinguished, you would have to place 576 million pixels into an area that is the size of your field of view. You only see high resolution in a very small area in the center of your vision – the fovea. Hence, although the eye does indeed have higher resolution than a digital camera, it's more comparable to a detective, collecting clues from your surrounding environment. It then takes those clues back to the brain. The brain, in turn, puts the pieces together to make a complete picture. . . . #eye #sight #camera #megapixel #lens #science #human #scifacts #think #humanmemory #mind #iphone #samsunggalaxy #canon #nikon #apple #samsung #olympus #scientific #biology #indepth #details #facts #fovea #opticnerve retina #visual #pixels #stem #stemed #scienceisfun

Over 40% of your body is muscle, and your body has 3 types of it: visceral (smooth) muscle, cardiac muscle, and skeletal muscle. Visceral muscle is found inside of organs like the stomach and lungs, and contract to move substances through the organ. Cardiac muscle is found in the heart and is responsible for pumping blood throughout your body. Skeletal muscle is the only voluntary muscle tissue in your body —it’s controlled consciously. Every physical action that you consciously perform – speaking, walking, etc. – requires the use of skeletal muscle. Learning about the muscular system – which you’ll enjoy with the use of this model – will give you a deep understanding of what is behind the movement of the human body.

A magnified view of the stem of an elodea plant – commonly known as waterweed. It provides great cover for fish and aquatic insects, and is a food source for different kinds of pond wildlife. However, the downside of it is that it can grow excessively, which can decrease dissolved oxygen levels during the summer, which kills fish. To control its growth, its nutrient sources can be reduced or redirected from the pond. Among a few means of accomplishing this are reducing fertilizer applications near the pond and redirecting nutrient-rich runoff away from it. . . #aquaticlife #underwater #aquatic #plant #pond #science #nature #lookaroundyou #explore #learning #scifacts #stem #microscope #detail #lookclosely #microscopy #miagnify #stemeducation #scientific #habitat #plantgrowth #scienceisfun #enviornment #earth #water #earth #study #knowledge #botany #lovescience

This is a magnified view of jasminum nudifllorum – a plant best known as winter jasmine. It’s one of the earliest flowering plants to bloom, often doing so in January. If you’re someone who dislikes winter, you’ll appreciate this plant for its pretty, cheery, buttery blooms that help allay the winter blues. Neither sun nor shade is a problem for the winter jasmine – it can tolerate both. However, it will blossom best in the sun. Once it becomes established, it will be very drought-tolerant. The winter jasmine illustrates how every living thing is unique in its own way! . . . #winterjasmine #plants #botany #stem #botanical #sunshine #nature #flower #plant #science #learn #unique #learningfromnature #scienceisfun #lookaround #environment #beautyinnature #scientific #scifacts #science #knowledge #details #digdeep #stemed #study #keeplearning #learningisfun #lovescicence #sun #shade

An achromatic lens typically consists of two optical components cemented together, usually a positive, low-index (crown) element and a negative, high-index (flint) element. (The microscope objective you see here has such a lens.) An apochromatic lens is a compound lens that consist of three lens elements. It gives better correction of aberration and significantly reduces dispersion versus monochromatic and achromatic lenses. When it comes to microscopes, the apochromatic microscope objective lens is typically higher in numerical aperture (NA) than those of corresponding magnification that are in achromatic form. Since apochromat objective lenses are corrected for three color wavelengths rather than two, they produce a more vivid image that is typically better for intricate laboratory work and advanced photomicrography. . . . #lens #scifacts #microscopy #science #microscope #learn #study #education #scilife #laboratory #apochromatic #optics #sight #vision #digdeep #insight #stem #medicine #university #college #analysis #student #teacher #lovescience #teach #knowledge #details #learnmore #knowledgeboost #aperture

Voltage is the electromotive force or the potential difference in charge between two points in an electrical field. As voltage increases, electrical current through a conducting or semiconducting medium for a given resistance to the flow, increases (electrical current being the quantity of charge carriers that pass a fixed point, per time unit).

Here’s a close-up view of a bee leg. Bees have three pairs of legs. Each leg has claws for gripping, and well as sticky pads that help the bee land on smooth surfaces. Interestingly, bees can taste with their legs…meaning that they exercise their sense of taste by means of taste receptors located on the tips of their legs (they also have these receptors on their antennas as well). The bee is just one of many creatures in nature we can learn a lot from! 🐝 . . . #bee #busybees #pollen #microscopy #learning #stem #insect #scientific #nature #honey #honeycomb #insight #keeplearning #theworldaroundus #lookaroundyou #stemeducation #scienceisfun #microscope #details #zoomin #detailed #scifacts #study #lovescience #taste #antennae #knowledge #think #science #lookdeep

Some of the jobs of the urinary system are eliminating waste from the body, regulating blood volume, and maintaining the balance of water in the body. A few things that a person can do to keep his/her urinary system healthy are (1), staying hydrated (water helps to eliminate waste from the body), (2) eating healthy (foods that are high in fat can put unnecessary stress on the kidneys), and (3), answering nature’s call right away (withholding urination can place needless pressure on your bladder, which can lead to infection).

This does not mean that they can never die - they can still die due to predators, disease, or a catastrophic change in the environment, such as an erupting volcano. If a plant or animal is biologically immortal, it means that unlike humans, they rarely die simply because they get old. An example is the Turritopsis nutricula jellyfish. When it encounters unpleasant environmental conditions, the adult Turritopsis simply sinks to the ocean floor and reverts to its juvenile polyp phase, which makes it look like a tiny clump of cells. The jellyfish can repeat this process of regression and re-growth endlessly. To date, there haven’t been any reported observations of its death due to aging. . . . #life #biology #lookaroundyou #science #scifacts #scientific #plants #animals #knowledge #laboratory #depth #details #lovescience #stem #student #stemeducation #scienceclass #environment #learn #jellyfish #growth #scienceisfun #nature #theearth #ocean #keeplearning #education #facts #teach #study

The amplified vibrations from your eardrum go to the cochlea, which is in your inner ear. The latter conducts sound via fluid. It's in the inner ear – which is about the size of a pencil eraser – that sounds are translated into nerve impulses, which the brain can recognize and understand as distinct sounds. The brain analyse sounds very thoroughly – so much so that you can, for example, identify the sound of a particular instrument in an entire orchestra. This analysis also enables you to single out a specific voice in a noisy room. . . . #ear #scifacts #science #hear #lovescience #depth #sound #knowledge #eardrum #innerear #nerveimpulse #brain #analysis #stem #nurse #stemed #biology #cochlea #learning #think #education #scienceisfun #human #study #teach #insight #student #teacher #nursing #details

Penicillium is a type of fungus that can be bluish, greenish, or yellowish in color. It can grow in or on anything, really, anything – on mattresses, on fruit, and even in wall insulation. Ironically, penicillin – an antibiotic discovered in 1928 that fights infectious diseases – is made from penicillium. Nonetheless, penicillium itself produces toxins that are harmful to one’s health – it can trigger allergic reactions, can damage the kidney, and could even cause cancer. Therefore, watch out for that bluish, greenish, or yellowish mold to protect the health of yourself and your family! . . . #health #healthcare #homecare #watchout #science #insight #food #medical #microscopic #scientific #depth #scifacts #stem #knowledge #detail #microscopy #medicine #bealert #meded #helpful #think #education #bacteria #learn #stemeducation #biology #research #university #college #keeplearning

Stratified squamous epithelia are tissues that are formed from multiple layers of cells resting on a basement membrane (which provides structural and metabolic support), with the superficial layer(s) consisting of squamous cells. They can be found in surfaces of the body that undergo constant wearing forces or on parts of the body that undergo frequent friction, such as the mouth, skin, and cornea. Stratified squamous epithelia are found in almost every organ system where the body comes into close contact with the outside environment – from the skin to the respiratory and digestive systems. They protect the body from desiccation and water loss. . . . #epidermis #mouth #science #learn #scientific #depth #examine #micrscope #microscopio #lovescience #membrane #water #eye #respiratory #digestive #university #microscopy #cells #lens #sight #knowledge #facts #student #teacher #classroom #biology #stemed #scifacts #scilife #think

The human brain never fails to amaze. It has been called a “random thought generator” – the average brain is believed to generate up to 50,000 thoughts per day. Furthermore, it’s capable of storing about one petabyte, or 1 quadrillion (1 followed by 15 zeroes) bytes, of data – about enough to store the entire Internet! When it comes to studying such a complex organ, this model will be a great study aid.

Fish scales – like this one – are composed of connective tissue covered with calcium. Their main purpose is to give the fish external protection. Some fish have tiny scales. Others have scales that are large enough to be used in jewelry. Diet-wise, fish are loaded with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health. We hope we’ve whetted your appetite – and given you a shopping idea. 😊 . . . #fish #nature #water #science #stem #jewlery #biology #calcium #stemeducation #heart #health #nutrients #scientific #knowledge #fish #scales #scifacts #lovescience #learning #lookaroundyou #jewellery #food #study #microscope #microscopy #scilife #depth #detail #student #teacher

A paramecium is a small, one-celled living organism. Naturally found in aquatic habitats, they help in controlling bacteria in water, as well as in cleaning up tiny debris in it. One of the simplest organisms on our planet, the paramecium is studied extensively to understand the way other organisms might function. . . . #scifacts #scientist #depth #biology #education #scilife #facts #microscope #study #learning #lovescience #organelles #microscopy #aquatic #study #habitat #cells #stem #earth #nature #stemeducation #lookaroundyou #knowledge #teacher #water #paramecium #detail #intricate #student #teach

This light is called “fluorescence.” Healthy plants use the energy from sunlight to perform photosynthesis. If a plant emits lots of fluorescence, it means that the plant is functioning well. If a plant is emitting little to no fluorescence, it means that the plant is stressed or shutting down. . . . #photosynthesis #scienceisfun #plants #student #stem #teach #botany #fluorescence #depth #learn #science #garden #nature #study #scientific #sunlight #stem #facts #scifacts #stemeducation #lovescience #scilife #knowledge #lookaround #light #school #teacher #scienceclass #examine #teacher

Marpighi made the former discovery in about March 1661. He also discovered that blood gets it red color from them. When he discovered taste buds, he regarded them as nerve endings. Despite his scientific achievements, he had many enemies who failed to see how his many discoveries could possibly improve medical practice. Nevertheless, Marpighi persevered. In fact, his studies provided the anatomical basis for further understanding of human physiology. . . . #redbloodcell #blood #circulation #science #circulatorysystem #sciencehistory #scifacts #learning #tastebuds #tongue #microscopy #anatomy #scientific #anatomical #learn #science #medical #stem #meded #discover #stemeducation #classroom #knowledge #sweettaste #cells #depth #life #biology #education #lovescience

This slide set is for hair types. Why would hair be studied? Well, a study in Holland showed that hair analysis can determine levels of the stress hormone cortisol and help assess a person’s risk of cardiovascular disease. Also, hair analysis has helped investigators assess a person’s use of illicit drugs. Furthermore, investigators have found the study of animal hair useful in investigating animal poaching and fraud in the textile and fur industry. This is just one of many analyses that reveal a lot about the world!
