Study reveals substantial evidence of holographic universe
A sketch of the timeline of the holographic Universe. Time runs from left to right. The far left denotes the holographic phase and the image is blurry because space and time are not yet well defined. At the end of this phase (denoted by the black fluctuating ellipse) the Universe enters a geometric phase, which can now be described by Einstein’s equations. The cosmic microwave background was emitted about 375,000 years later. Patterns imprinted in it carry information about the very early Universe and seed the development of structures of stars and galaxies in the late time Universe (far right)…

Study reveals substantial evidence of holographic universe

A UK, Canadian and Italian study has provided what researchers believe is the first observational evidence that our universe could be a vast and complex hologram.

Científicos argentinos hallan la “bacteria de la longevidad”: Se trata de la Bacillus subtilis
Un estudio realizado por científicos de la Universidad Nacional de Rosario del que participan investigadores y becarios del Conicet reveló que la bacteria probiótica Bacillus subtilis, consumida desde tiempos milenarios en alimentos por la población de ciertos países asiáticos como Japón, tendría la propiedad de retardar el envejecimiento y prolongar la vida humana a través de la colonización del intestino. El trabajo que se habla de esta bacteria, que posee efectos beneficiosos sobre el sistema inmunitario, fue publicado en la revista Nature Communications…

Científicos argentinos hallan la “bacteria de la longevidad” – DocSalud.com

Actúa en los intestinos. Hasta ahora sus efectos fueron probados en un gusano, cuya forma de envejecer es muy similar a la humana. Según sus autores, los resultados, extrapolados a los individuos, significan “vivir más allá de los 120 años con la vitalidad de una persona de 50”.

Siete años después de Óscar, el primer gato al que se le implantaron dos patas artificiales, un veterinario búlgaro devolvió la movilidad a un joven gato, Pooh, el primer gato “biónico” de Europa continental. Privado de sus dos patas traseras, el felino, de un año, cuenta ahora con dos prótesis en polímero de caucho ensambladas en titanio. Un mes después de la operación, “ésta puede considerarse un éxito”, dijo a la AFP Vladislav Zlatinov, cirujano veterinario de Sofía…

Is a master algorithm the solution to our machine learning problems?
Machine learning is not new. We have witnessed it since the 1990s, when Amazon introduced a new “recommended for you” section for its users to display more personalized results. When we search for something on Google, machine learning is behind those search results. The “Friends” recommendations or the suggested pages on Facebook or a product recommendation on any e-commerce site all depend on machine learning. In other ways, these websites know a lot about us. Every click or search we perform is recorded and provides more information about us to these sites, but none of these sites know completely about us. Google knows what we are searching for, Amazon knows what we are looking to buy, Apple knows about our music interests and Facebook knows a lot about our social behavior. But none of these sites knows about our preferences and choices throughout the day. They only can predict by looking at our previous clicks and not by looking at the big picture of us…

Windows 10 Cloud is Microsoft’s fresh Chrome OS alternative
Microsoft has been trying to keep PC makers away from Chrome OS for years, and consumers far away from Apple’s iPad alternative. While Windows RT largely failed at going mainstream, and Windows 8.1 with Bing was never widely used, the software giant is experimenting with another low-cost version of its popular Windows operating system: Windows 10 Cloud…

How New Technology Accelerates the Search for Ancient Sites
Citizen scientists have discovered a cluster of galaxies millions of light years away. They’ve logged data that proved there was citywide lead contamination in the water in Flint, Michigan. They’ve rallied attention to a mass die-off of sea stars. And today, they will begin mapping Peru, using GlobalXplorer.org to scan specially-processed satellite imagery for signs of ancient sites that modern archaeologists don’t know about…

How New Technology Accelerates the Search for Ancient Sites

Using satellite technology and the power of the crowd, I believe we’ll find and protect an incredible number of ancient sites, which could offer new clues into who we are as human beings.

World’s first time crystals cooked up using new recipe
It’s no longer just a wild theory. Two independent teams of physicists have followed a recipe to build the world’s first versions of an enigmatic form of matter – time crystals. MIT physicist and Nobel laureate Frank Wilczek first speculated about the existence of time crystals in 2012, while teaching a class on ordinary crystals, such as salt, or snowflakes. In a typical crystal, the atoms or molecules are tightly arranged in regularly repeating patterns in three-dimensional space, resembling a lattice…

Stars in the halo of the Milky Way often travel in groups
The Milky Way disk is embedded in a roundish halo of stars. The stars (in purple) are from a computer simulation of the remains from a merger with a small galaxy. The arrows indicate the motion of these stars that are now part of the halo. Larger arrows indicate faster motion. The astronomers suspect that tens to hundreds of such flows of stars are crisscrossing the Milky Way…
