#FastRepost from @sciencehumanist by @fastrepost_app ••• NGC 2440 is another planetary nebula ejected by a dying star, but it has a much more chaotic structure than NGC 2346. The central star of NGC 2440 is one of the hottest known, with a surface temperature near 200,000 degrees Celsius. The complex structure of the surrounding nebula suggests to some astronomers that there have been periodic oppositely directed outflows from the central star, somewhat similar to that in NGC2346, but in the case of NGC 2440 these outflows have been episodic, and in different directions during each episode. The nebula is also rich in clouds of dust, some of which form long, dark streaks pointing away from the central star. In addition to the bright nebula, which glows because of fluorescence due to ultraviolet radiation from the hot star, NGC 2440 is surrounded by a much larger cloud of cooler gas which is invisible in ordinary light but can be detected with infrared telescopes. NGC 2440 lies about 4,000 light-years from Earth in thedirection of the constellation Puppis. The Hubble Heritage team made this image from observations of NGC 2440acquired by Howard Bond (STScI) and Robin Ciardullo (Penn State).

"I deal with diamonds all day long, for three decades," says David Weinstein, executive director of the International Gemological Institute, a commercial testing laboratory. "To me, diamonds aren't anything spectacular. It's hard to get me to say, 'Wow!'" But lately he has been impressed by certain diamonds — those created in the lab.

Closed chain exercises V Open chain exercises? Is there a difference? Does it matter? Classifying exercises as either open or closed chain is a simple way of understanding how or where they'd fit into a training programme. Closed chain exercises are exercises where the feet or hands are not in motion throughout the exercise. An example of this would be a squat, lunge, deadlift or a press up. During these exercises stability is usually pretty high and the force production of these exercises is also high. These exercises are ideal for promoting co-contraction of several muscle groups for example the quads, hamstrings and glutes all contribute to producing the movement pattern of a lunge. They are also (the majority of the time) a better representation of the movements we see during athletic performance. Open chain exercises on the other hand are exercises where the hands and legs are free to move about. They sometimes isolate one muscle group and also involve a higher degree of stabilisation from the athlete. Examples would include a leg extension, bicep curls, leg curls and DB chest press. These sorts of exercises come in handy during rehab phases or when you are trying to increase strength in a particular muscle. These exercises also have a greater demand on smaller stabilising muscles. There are a ton of ways of classifying exercises or deciding whether or not to include them in a programme, this is only one. Neither group is better than the other. Everything is within the context of the individual and based on an assessment 🔥

The most hardworking, precious organ in the body, which also happens to be the symbol of love .... the all important heart!! . 24 hours per day and 365 days per year, the heart pumps blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, to the rest of our tissues so that they can perform their functions to keep us alive. According to the @mayoclinic the average adult heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute, which translates to 86,400 to 144,000 beats per day. Over the course of a year, this equates to roughly 42,048,000 beats. When you consider the heart’s work over the course of an average lifetime, the numbers become even more mind-boggling. Assuming a lifetime of 80 years and an average heart rate of 80 beats per minute, your heart will beat roughly 3,363,840,000 times in your lifetime! . . Did you learn something new?

Stunning stain of a single neuron (blue) within the hippocampus, shared by @mdhealthtips! . The hippocampus is THE area in the #brain responsible for memory 🌳 H.M., a famous patient in whom the hippocampus was surgically removed in the 1950s as a last-resort treatment for epilepsy, had a then-unpredicted side effect of anterograde amnesia (aka the inability to form new memories) for the rest of his life 😱. As unfortunate as his case was, it was H.M. who taught us the importance of the hippocampus in memory encoding and retrieval. . While we traditionally think of the brain as an area where cells don't divide or regenerate, we now understand the hippocampus to be a unique site where new neurons (aka brain cells) are formed even in adulthood. And the hippocampus operates under a use-it-or-lose-it principle. Keeping our brains active 💪, whether through work, reading, crossword puzzles, playing musical instruments, is correlated with increased hippocampal volume, and similarly (and perhaps unsurprisingly) a lower risk of dementia later in life. .

Look closely - what is that inside that chamber? 🤨 . That my friends, is a porcine heart going through the process of decellularization. Decellularization is the process used in biomedical engineering to isolate the extracellular matrix (ECM) of a tissue from its inhabiting cells, leaving an ECM scaffold of the original tissue, which can be used in artificial organ and tissue regeneration. This was performed as part of an MD/PhD research project at the University of Arizona.

Employees from a variety of departments at @pjminterconnection hosted a visit with nine students from Mastery Pickett Campus! PJM introduced Pickett students to the company and provided insight into science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM)-related careers. ⠀ ⠀ Students received an overview of #PJM with a focus on engineering, facilities and graphic design. They even had the opportunity to participate in tours of the IT Data Center, Innovation Hall, and a brief job shadowing.⠀ ⠀ Thank you PJM Interconnection for hosting our students and providing them with this hands-on experience! #ChooseMastery #STEAM #science #technology #engineering #arts #math #PJMInterconnection #IT #data #innovation

Are you still convinced that pollination is only due to honeybees? 😜 #pollinationweek Here a #fly (Sorry but I don't know the species, I can just say that belong to Diptera order) on #flowers. Flies are an insect group that give a great contribution to pollination, maybe more than honeybees. Moreover, some flowers have particular smells that attract only flies, so they belong only to them.

☀️ Getting in my daily dose of sunshine. Did you know that only 10 minutes in the sun triggers your body to produce Vitamin D? 💥 Vitamin D lowers high blood pressure, helps you loose excess weight, improves sleep and brain functions as well as combatting depression. So make sure you get at least 10-15 min of sunshine a day! For extra benefits but your bare feet on the Earth to ground yourself while you take some deep breaths! 🧚🏼‍♀️☀️ #natureisdope #science #reasonswhyilovecalifornia ☀️🌸🐬🌴💫

Mais um dele, esse estudo do Antonio et al @the_issn, mostrou o aumento de massa livre de gordura ( massa magra) com a utilização de doses altas de caseína (54g) pré-sono. Sendo uma boa opção para adequar sua ingestão de proteína diária, além de otimizar o ganho de massa muscular. Mas só serve a Caseína? Não necessariamente, a Caseína geralmente é escolhida para esse tipo de estudo (pré-sono), por ser uma proteína de absorção lenta, levando a um pico gradual de aminoácidos no sangue. Ovos e o próprio Whey Protein junto com uma fonte de gordura (exemplo: abacate) podem ser uma boa opção. Temos um caminho a ser explorado e em breve teremos mais certezas! 🤓 #issn #science #casein #presleep #lbm #muscle #protein #dieteticsupplements #study #sportnutrition #nutrition #nutrição #nutriçaoesportiva #fergoncalvesnutri #proteína #caseína #massamagra #músculos #zumub #proteinsynthesis #protein

On board of the ISS is no gravity because astronauts are weightless? - Wrong!🚫 . Of course there is gravity, because otherwise the spacestation would simply fly away into outer space 🌌 . Astronauts can't feel the presents of gravity because the ISS is moving pretty fast in an orbit around earth 💫 . Gravity pulls the station down to earth and acts as the centripetal force 🌍 but the centrifugal force acts in the exact opposit direction due to the station's speed ↔️ So the forces are canceling each other out! .
