Happy National Engineers Week! Wednesday’s Biolytic Employee Profile is Nicole Parnala - Technical Support Engineer I Went to school for: Bioengineering In her current position Nicole creates documents on how to build certain assemblies so others, either a technician or a customer, can build it on their own. She uses manufacturing skills to build these assemblies, and then takes pictures and create diagrams to document the process for future use. Nicole also works on rebuilding existing machines and fixing or replacing any parts that are causing the machines to not operate properly. “I love doing hands-on work and building things, so I really enjoy being able to do that at work and showing others how to do it to.”, “To be able to work with other engineers and people with all types of experience is a wonderful opportunity and I learn something new every day,” says Mrs. Parnala. Favorite engineering quote: “At its heart, engineering is about using science to find creative, practical solutions. It is a noble profession.” – Queen Elizabeth II. #Eweek2018 #Biolytic #Engineer #Software #Discoverorg #DiscoverE #Science #Biotech #Solution

Are you just trying to be a people pleaser with your referral sources? The old school mentality seems to be that you always have to please and smooch up to physicians and referral sources to maintain a good relationship and to get patients coming in from that physician. But is this how we should really be handling it?• • Look physicians have people coming into their offices all the time kissing their rear ends, giving them food and gifts telling them about a product or service and how what they are “selling” is so good. And why that may make them think of you for a minute do you think this makes a lasting impression? Probably not. • • Some old school physicians might really love this but I think developing a relationship and team that actually communicates in both directions takes more then this. Personally I think showing this person you are competent and have a good knowledge base means a lot more. As well as not just saying you’re good but having things to objectively show how you are good like FOTO outcomes and other objective outcome measures. And little things like updating a referral source when you do progress notes and discharge notes on how a patient is doing be it a letter you send with a patient or just faxing a progress update. • • Having a good relationship and being looked at as a team member takes a lot more then sucking up. And while any relationship is a give and take if you make yourself the door mat off the bat that’s all you’ll ever be #strengthinevidence

Entanglement in #fishing #gear, known as #bycatch, represents the biggest human-caused threat to #dolphins and #porpoise, including this #Dall's porpoise in #Canada's #Pacific #Ocean. We are working to find #noninvasive #solutions to the bycatch problem. But Dall's porpoise typically live far offshore, and testing new #technology can be a logistical challenge. Last year, we led a low-tech with @newenglandaquarium to see whether Dall's porpoise avoid a benign signal produced by a "pinger." You know the beeping sound that trucks make when they back up? You can put one of those beepers in a waterproof housing, and attach them to a fishing net to try to keep marine mammals away from your gear. Pingers work very well to reduce bycatch of harbour porpoise. We're testing whether they work as well on their offshore cousins, Dall's porpoise. This isn't the sharpest photo we've ever taken. (Check out @aprilbencze 's feed for a great shot of this species.) They are the fastest of all the small cetaceans, and can reach speeds of 55 km/h. We like the fact that this shot focuses on the water moving over the #animal's head. They're challenging to study, which makes every day in the field an #adventure. Now, we're doing the less romantic part of our #science, namely analyzing all of the hard-won data we collected in the field. Thanks, as always, for supporting our #conservation work.

#universo #Rensta #Repost: @nasahubble via @renstapp ··· “ Three billion miles away on the farthest known major planet in our solar system, an ominous, dark storm – once big enough to stretch across the Atlantic Ocean from Boston to Portugal – is shrinking out of existence as seen in pictures of Neptune taken by Hubble. Immense dark storms on Neptune were first discovered in the late 1980s by NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft. Since then, only Hubble has had the sharpness in blue light to track these elusive features that have played a game of peek-a-boo over the years. Hubble found two dark storms that appeared in the mid-1990s and then vanished. This latest storm was first seen in 2015, but is now shrinking. Like Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS), the storm swirls in an anti-cyclonic direction and is dredging up material from deep inside the ice giant planet’s atmosphere. The elusive feature gives astronomers a unique opportunity to study Neptune’s deep winds, which can’t be directly measured. Unlike Jupiter’s GRS, which has been visible for at least 200 years, Neptune’s dark vortices only last a few years. This is the first one that actually has been photographed as it is dying.

So, mientras buscaba foto para el producto y las partes graciosas, encontré estas chuladas😍 y la del grafeno, la 3 foto, va a ser sin duda la foto del producto que os enseñé ayer y que teníamos que inventar; una camiseta deportiva de grafeno que te monitoriza, es resistente a las balas, da calor cuando hace frío, estimula las neuronas y por ende mejora la memoria en personas con y sin patologías, te puede hacer invisible (ojo, que estas cosas si están siendo investigadas de verdad) y es el material del futuro. Lo único inventado es el doraemon-like pocket, que te permite hacer o tener todo lo que desees, pero para que quedara creíble, me inventé un estudio realizado por múltiples psicólogos y físicos que tiene que ver con los pensamientos y la materialización de lo pensado😂 Ciencia veraz con cosas trolls y inventadas que se disfrutan haciéndolas pq lo gracioso nunca sobra y ayuda a divulgar info chula, que no está naaaada mal😊

IHC of GATA-3 on this breast tissue looks incredible! This protein is encoded by the GATA3 gene (think nucleotides... G-A-T-A) and is responsible for regulating the luminal epithelial cell differentiation within mammary glands. Highly positive nuclei such as those pictured mean one of three things. Most often, the pathology will be a form of invasive breast carcinoma, peripheral T-cell lymphoma, or urothelial carcinoma. From a clinical perspective, mutations of the GATA3 gene have been known to cause hypoparathyroidism, sensorineural deafness, and renal dysplasia (Journal of Endocrinology 2011). I’m so impressed with and amazed by tissue architecture these days. #histology #histotechnology #pathology #pathart #microtomy #microscopy #science #scientist #biotechnology #biotech #immunology

Prescription burning lessens the risk of insect pests moving into the woody materials and causing damage to nearby healthy young trees. Burning also releases new nutrients into the soil where young trees can access them, increasing soil fertility.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #forestry #oregonforestry #forestfacts #forests #prescriptionburning #wildfire #wildfirecontrol #wildfiresafety #firesafety #science #firescience #fuelcontrol #safety #fireseason #oregon #exploregon #pnwisbest #oregonforests #keeporegongreen #themoreyouknow #scienceisgood

Prescription burning removes hazardous fuels left after logging. Wildfire needs fuel in order to burn and carefully removing those materials lowers the risk of a fire burning out of control.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #forestry #oregonforestry #forestfacts #forests #prescriptionburning #wildfire #wildfirecontrol #wildfiresafety #firesafety #science #firescience #fuelcontrol #safety #fireseason #oregon #exploregon #pnwisbest #oregonforests #keeporegongreen #themoreyouknow #scienceisgood

Jupiter 💙 Regrann from @nasajuno - The view from here. This color-enhanced image of Jupiter’s swirling south polar region was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it neared completion of its tenth close flyby of the gas giant planet. The spacecraft captured this image on Dec. 16, 2017 at 11:07 PST when the spacecraft was about 64,899 miles from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of 83.9 degrees south — almost directly over Jupiter’s south pole. #NASA #Juno #Jupiter #JunoCam #photography #citizenscience #space #art #cosmology #astrology #science - #regrann

I am absolutely in love with this Mag Alata skin! From the beautiful leather texturing on the bodice, to the vivid energy effects, to the intricate patterning on the waist, hips, and legs. And I am absolutely drooling over the bold metallics that perfectly accentuate the skin! The geometric coiling on the back of the helmet is the icing on the cake. I’ve paired the skin with the Disconnect Syandana to keep with the scientific theme of Mag, and it looks great! #Warframe #Fashionframe #Mag #Alata #Fashion #Captura #PS4 #Gamer #Gaymer #Color #Striking #DigitalExtremes #HitsuSan #Disconnect #Gorgeous #Faven #CernosPrime #BoPrime #Tennogen #Gay #Physics #Science

🐝INTERNATIONAL SWEEPSTAKES/GIVEAWAY ALERT🐝 I’m partnering with @picador books to send 2 lucky winners a galley(ARC) of Darwin Comes to Town before it hits the shelves in April! Embrace your science selves everybody! Here are the rules: 1. Must be following @picador and @thebumblingbookworm 2. Comment on the post and tag a friend below! Good luck! Giveaway closes on Monday 2/26/18 at 7pm EST. 🐝REVIEW.... I just finished reading, Darwin Comes to Town, by Menno Schilthuizen. My inner science soul delights! This was a very interesting read about different facets of evolution in urban settings. And although the book was written with domain specific language, the author made it easily understandable and relatable. I have always had a million questions about evolution and this book makes me eager to keep an even keener eye out for what’s going on around me. We humans are impacting the evolution of our surrounding flora and fauna. The speed of which is determined by the setting, interaction and the amount of neophilia (a curiosity of novelty) these fauna have. It’s a fascinating combination. I enjoyed reading this book and found myself thinking, ‘how about that!’ on way more than one occasion. Darwin Comes Town highlights urban evolution and how we as humans have impacted it. The author also includes backstories of his own life and other scientists within the text. I really enjoyed reading about these specific types of plants and animals that support the theory of urban evolution. If you like science, Darwin, evolution and ecology, this book will serve you well. I learned so much from reading this and I’m excited to share these ideas!

Would you rather be as accurate as you can or be right? ————————Claim————————— The point of the last post is not to say I know what truth is, but to discuss the best known method for discovering it in a peaceful & purposeful way, through opening our consciousness to the things outside our control and accepting this apparent reality. It is this conscious act of keeping our mind open to the endless possibilities of the forces outside of our control, that allows us to better adapt in a more peaceful way. ————————Criticism———————— But, keeping an open mind to these possibilities includes potentially being wrong. Criticism can be a painful pill to swallow when even a small part of ourselves agrees with it. It can threaten that glass case we protect our fragile underexposed egos in. But again, are you an all-knowing God? Then why would you expect or assume yourself to be right, without testing your man-made theory? If it is accurate, it will hold true against the Whole of everything we currently know, which includes forces that are even outside of your control. ———————Conclusion—————— This perspective implies that we exist outside of the potentially restraining man-made concept of right & wrong. At its root, our adaptation as humans to this universe is reactive. Therefore, it is (not perfect, but) better to be as accurate as we can, rather than be right. And if you need further reason still...Expecting or assuming our Selves as right(or wrong) is how people have justified killing/discriminating based on subjective religion, opinion, actual racism, god/power complexes, and more, that frankly is just not the most fair or sustainable perspective for everyone in a community. ✨🌎🌺The Positive🌺🌎✨ Instead, let’s open-mindedly apply our beliefs to criticism. This rigorous self-analysis can be relatively difficult & mentally taxing, but will result in the best benefit for a peaceful & purposeful life. #science #scientificmethod #meditation #freedom #purpose #meaning #peace #positivity #discipline #love #consciousness #suffering #cbt #therapy #sandiego #hardmodehouse #onelove
