    THIS fiendishly tricky optical illusion asks viewers to identify the hidden likeness between the two pears. While the pieces of fruit appear to be a different colour, in truth they're far more alike than you think. 1These two pears are actually the same colourCredit: Lenstore Despite one pear looking darker than the other underneath the black and white lines, they're both actually the same hue. This mechanism is an example of a brightness illusion. Similar visual puzzles have been around for over 100 years and follow a familiar pattern.

    In its recommendations included in its final report presented on Monday during a debate session at the Councilors, the task force stressed the need to set up a legislative and regulatory framework to govern the administrative structure, storage conditions, financial resources and other activities. It is necessary to establish an integrated system to manage and protect strategic stocks of basic products. In terms of storage, the report recommends an effective control system regarding food stock distribution and its management methods, as well as adopting an early and early warning mechanism against risks that threaten industrial chains and supply. Speaking at the event, El Mehdi Atmoun, Chairman of the Thematic Committee on Food Security in the House of Councillors, confirmed that the report was the result of three months of continuous work with all national and international actors. As a result of the series of listening sessions and several field visits organized with the concerned departments and agencies, he continued, to get a closer look at the real situation of the National Security Organisation.

    Thalidomide could save the lives of patients battling a rare blood vessel condition, research suggests. The notorious drug killed and injured up to 100,000 babies in the 1950s and left thousands severely disabled, damaging their limbs, ears and eyes.  But it offers a 'breakthrough' in the treatment of severe arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) — abnormal tangles of blood vessels, scientists now say. The condition, which can occur anywhere in the body, can prove excruciating, cause bleeding and even trigger strokes.  Current treatment options include surgery to remove the tangled vessels and injections that block blood from flowing through them. Thalidomide hailed as a 'wonder drug' for morning sickness after it was created by German pharmaceutical giant Gruenenthal Group in the 1950s. But it was blamed for the deaths of 100,000 babies and left 10,000 severely disabled — such as with missing or deformed limbs — by the time it was withdrawn in 1961 RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 2 Next Is Covid on its way BACK?

    But what about Pfizer’s Paxlovid? Doesn’t that have a safer mechanism of action, similar to that of ivermectin? And wasn’t it proven 89% effective in reducing mortality and hospitalization? Efficacy of Pfizer’s PaxlovidUnlike Merck’s drug, which has a known dangerous mechanism of action as a nucleotide analogue, Paxlovid is more of a defensive drug as a 3CL protease inhibitor. Dr. Ryan Cole, a clinical and anatomic pathologist who has studied the replication process of SARS-CoV-2 and its treatments in more depth than almost anyone on the planet, explains the mechanism as follows:When COVID replicates inside our cells, part of the process is formation of a long string of amino acids within our cell’s ribosome (hijacked by the virus to use as a protein manufacturing site), forming a chain of proteins called a polyprotein. In order for the proteins to form the parts of the virus, this chain must be clipped and broken down into the viral protein parts. An enzyme called a protease does this cutting and clipping. Paxlovid is a protease inhibitor, meaning it binds to this enzyme “scissors”...
    Published: 20 November 2021 14:47 GMT Researchers say that these are just some of the traits that a male can use to get an accurate and distinctive male song, so that the female can choose which bird she wants to mate with. A study released this Friday reveals that specialized cells of neural circuits that facilitate complex learning in songbirds bear significant resemblance to a type of neuron associated with motor development in the human brain. “These are the qualities that are needed if you want a precise, different masculine song So the female can choose which bird she wants to mate with“, Promised Henrik van Kerstorf, co-author of the study, is a senior scientist at the Wallam Institute at the Oregon University of Health and Science (OHSU). “Required Very specialized brain To make this happen, “he added. The researchers say that the set of neurons and ion channels involved in the male zebra’s song is similar to the set of similar neurons. betz cells In the primary motor cortex of the human brain.

    The mantis shrimp boasts one of the most powerful and ultrafast punches in nature—it's on par with the force generated by a .22-caliber bullet. This makes the creature an attractive object of study for scientists eager to learn more about the relevant biomechanics. Among other uses, it could lead to small robots capable of equally fast, powerful movements. Now, a team of Harvard University researchers has come up with a new biomechanical model for the mantis shrimp's mighty appendage, and it built a tiny robot to mimic that movement, according to a recent paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Ars TechnicaThis story originally appeared on Ars Technica, a trusted source for technology news, tech policy analysis, reviews, and more.

    08/23/2021 at 6:32 PM CEST Researchers from the Association for Psychological Science (APS) in the United States have discovered and detailed in a new study the action of a “prediction machine” in the human brain, responsible for processing information received from the environment to anticipate what will happen later in certain situations. According to a press release, the brain mechanism is also capable of “Clean up” confusing data and complex structures, so that it is possible to cope with the reality of the world without getting lost in its labyrinths. The research has been published recently in the journal Psychological Science. To understand the process, the studio develops an analogy with the musical experience. When a musical phrase has an uncertain or unresolved quality, our brain automatically predicts how the melody will end: researchers suggest that the human brain considers what has happened before to anticipate what comes next, in a predictive and anticipatory quality that applies to different stimuli.

    Since Volta first stacked copper and zinc plates together 200 years ago, battery technology has made significant progress.As technology continues to evolve from lead-acid batteries to lithium ion batteries, there are still many challenges such as achieving higher density and preventing dendrite growth. Experts are competing to solve the world’s growing need for energy efficient and safe batteries. Electrification of heavy vehicles and aircraft requires high energy density batteries. A research team believes that a paradigm shift is needed to make a significant impact on battery technology in these industries. This modification will use the ion reduction-oxidation mechanism at the lithium-rich positive electrode. The results of a study published in the journal Nature indicate that this ionic oxidation reaction was first observed directly in lithium-rich battery materials. Cooperative institutions include Carnegie Mellon University, University of Doha, Finland’s Lapinranda-Lahdi University of Technology (LUT) and Japanese companies Kunma University, Japan Institute of Synchronous Radiation Research (Jasri), Yokohama National University, Kyoto University and Ritzumigun. Lithium-rich oxides are a promising type of cathode material because they have high storage capacities. However, there is...
    One dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine (Photo: DIRK WAEM via BELGA MAG / . via .) The Italian authorities have located in a warehouse in Italy some 29 million doses of the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford, supposedly prepared for export to the United Kingdom, according to the newspaper La Stampa. The doses have been found in a plant of the company Catalent, near Rome, after the European Commission warned. At least part of this material would have been produced in the Netherlands by the firm Halix, an AstraZeneca subcontractor with the capacity to generate 5 million doses per month, reports the Bloomberg agency. The drugs located in Italy are almost double those that the EU has received so far from the Anglo-Swedish pharmaceutical company and, according to La Stampa, their final destination is the United Kingdom, which would have bought them to guarantee a second dose to almost 15 million people. The news transcends precisely the day in which the Community Executive adopts a modification of the control mechanism created to prevent the export of...
    Researchers at UCL (University College London) have solved an important piece of the puzzle that forms the ancient Greek astronomical calculator known as the Antikythera mechanism. Known to many as the world’s first analog computer, the Antikythera mechanism is the most complex piece of engineering to survive from the ancient world. The device of 2,000 years It was used to predict the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets, as well as lunar and solar eclipses. Published in Scientific Reports, the UCL study reveals a new visualization of the ancient Greek order of the Universe (Cosmos), within a complex gear system on the front of the Mechanism. Lead author Professor of Mechanical Engineering Tony Freeth explained in a statement: “Ours is the first model that conforms to all physical tests and matches descriptions of the scientific inscriptions engraved on the mechanism itself. The Sun, Moon and planets are shown in an impressive tour de force of ancient Greek brilliance. “ Discovered in 1901 The Antikythera mechanism has generated both fascination and intense controversy since its discovery in a Roman-era...
    Following the EU’s support for the Italy’s decision to block a shipment of 250,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine to Australia, the United Kingdom has communicated that restrictions on the export of vaccines against COVID-19 could jeopardize the global fight against the virus. “The global recovery from the COVID pandemic depends on the international collaboration. We all depend on global supply chains: Imposing restrictions jeopardizes global efforts to fight the virus, “said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman. Italy has become the first country in the European Union to ban the export of coronavirus vaccines since Brussels approved the mechanism on the control of exports of drugs produced in Community territory. The country transferred its decision to the European Commission last week and the Community executive, who has the last word in this regard, did not oppose the ban decreed by Rome. Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi spoke on Wednesday with the president of the Community Executive, Ursula Von der Leyen, about how to accelerate the European health response against the coronavirus, in relation to the vaccination campaign. The European...
    This is the first time that a Member State has used the European monitoring and authorization mechanism set up at the end of January. By Philippe de Boeck and . Head of the World Department Posted on 03/4/2021 at 6:54 p.m. PFor the first time since the start of the pandemic, a member state of the European Union has blocked the export of a batch of vaccines against the coronavirus from its territory. The Italian government used, on Thursday, the mechanism for monitoring and authorizing EU exports. The blockage concerns a delivery of 250,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine scheduled for Australia. Rome has communicated its decision to the European Commission, which has not raised any objection. The system provides that the States themselves exercise this control via their national customs, by examining the applications for export authorization submitted by the laboratories, before seeking the approval of the Commission. This mechanism was set up at the end of January, in the midst of a showdown between the European Commission and the...
    Suez rediscovers the use of one of its main weapons drawn by the French group to oppose the merger project of its competitor Veolia. In an interim order issued on March 4, that The gallery was able to consult, the commercial court of Nanterre has indeed retracted another enforceable order issued on November 18 by its president, which represented an important victory for Veolia. The latter prohibited Suez, “until the end of the annual general meeting ruling on the accounts for the 2020 financial year”, “to take any decision of such a nature as or having for object or for effect, to bring about the irrevocability” of the foundation created in September to protect its subsidiary Suez Eau France. A complication for Veolia Opposed to the Veolia buyout plan, implying for competition reasons the sale of its subsidiary to a third party – already identified by Veolia in the Meridiam group -, Suez indeed announced on September 23 that it had taken a decision to “legally ensure the sustainability of Suez Eau France within the group “.

    The Council of Ministers approved on Tuesday the “General Guidelines for the Sustainable Development Strategy 2030”, an extensive document that establishes the guidelines for the Government’s economic, social and environmental policy for the coming years. And, in this text, the Executive undertakes to implement “containment mechanisms or possible lowering of prices” of rents that may be used by city councils in certain “stressed market” areas of cities. In this way, the Government once again puts in writing the commitment that is blocking the negotiation of the new housing law between PSOE and United We Can. Despite the fact that the socialist part of the Executive promised last October to implement this mechanism, now the PSOE is reluctant to put a cap on the price of rents and limits itself to proposing tax exemptions to owners that they do not raise the price of the lease above a certain limit. The document approved this Tuesday in the Council of Ministers includes a wording practically identical to that agreed in October. The Government, the text indicates, must include in the housing law...
    For those who frequently visit establishments like Costco and Sam’s, it is not surprising that when leaving the store, once paid for their purchases, staff from these stores come to check their ticket and take a look at what they carry in their carts. The truth is that, according to the Federal Consumer Prosecutor’s Office (Profeco), this practice may be illegal. Profeco has urged self-service stores that carry out this practice to stop doing it since it could be an illegal measure according to some articles of the Federal Consumer Protection Law (LFPC). In accordance with articles nine and ten of said law, suppliers of goods or services are prohibited from taking actions that violate the freedom or safety of consumers, under the pretext of registration or investigation. Specifically, article 10 dictates: “Any provider of goods or services is prohibited from carrying out actions that threaten the freedom or security or personal integrity of consumers under the pretext of registration or investigation. In the event that someone is caught in the flagrant commission of a crime, the...
    The Ministry of Transport and the Second Vice Presidency of the Government have already begun to negotiate the text of what will be the new housing law in which, as agreed by the PSOE and United We Can last October, will include a mechanism to limit prices in areas especially stressed. And executive sources explain that both departments They have been set as a limit in mid-February to have an agreed text. Until now, Transport and the Vice Presidency of Pablo Iglesias have only held meetings of a technical nature in which, among other matters, it has been agreed that the negotiation will be done by blocks and, as on previous occasions, the points that are expected to generate the most dissent will be left for last. It is not difficult to foresee that the part that has to do with the large owners will be one of them, and how the price containment mechanism is implemented will be especially key. The purple part of the Government rejects the inclusion in this mechanism of tax incentives for property owners, a...
    The new conditions of use of the instant messaging application has alarmed many users. WhatsApp’s notice to its users, notifying the new policies for 2021 motivated many to download applications such as Signal and Telegram due to the fear generated by his message of linking the account with the entire Facebook ecosystem. However, despite the clarification made by the application owned by Facebook, many users continue to investigate how to confuse Mark Zuckerberg’s company and not offer him any of their data. That is why below you will know a trick that can facilitate this task. Can I use WhatsApp without accepting the new policies for 2021? The answer is no. The warning was very clear; In case you do not accept the new policies, your account can simply be deleted. « We may use the information we receive to operate, provide, improve, understand, personalize, support our services and Facebook offerings, » reads the statement from the instant messaging application shared on its site.

    Rafael Grossi, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said Monday that the Iran nuclear deal should be fully restored within a matter of “weeks” or else Iran, which has aggressively violated the deal over the past few years, will soon begin processing weapons-grade uranium. Iranian officials stressed they are unwilling to renegotiate any portion of the deal, although they suggested they might add a few non-negotiable demands, such as eliminating all future risks of “snapback” sanctions. Grossi made his comments at the Reuters Next virtual forum Monday in response to a question about Iran’s announcement that it will begin enriching uranium to 20 percent fissile strength — a level far beyond any civilian energy need, and the last theoretical stop before weapons-grade enrichment begins. “It’s not for me to say what to do, but it’s clear that we don’t have many months ahead of us, but rather weeks,” Grossi said. “I wouldn’t like to receive a communication that because of the deadline of Feb. 21 the presence of my inspectors in Iran is going to be reduced....
    “Domino” EU developments and global alert triggered by Great Britain’s announcement that a new strain of the corona virus has been identified. It is 70% more contagious and dangerous.

Amazon Anxiety is managed differently from person to person, and as such, coping mechanisms can also widely vary. Journaling has been scientifically suggested to aid in anxiety management, and guided journals catered specifically to anxiety can serve as an excellent place for anyone to start. We spoke to Dr. Rebecca Mannis, a learning specialist who holds a PhD in developmental psychology, for insight into the importance of anxiety journals, how to begin journaling, and what to keep in mind while deciding on which coping mechanisms are best for you. This article was medically reviewed by Dr. Jeff Ditzell, D.O., with a private practice in New York City. Editor's note: Although journaling can be a beneficial coping mechanism, it is not comparable to professional care. Coping with anxiety is something that looks different for everyone.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — An 87-year-old Rwandan arrested in France was transferred to the custody of a United Nations court in the Netherlands on Monday, nearly 23 years after he was first indicted for his alleged involvement in the 1994 genocide in his country, the court announced. Félicien Kabuga is charged with offenses including genocide, complicity in genocide, incitement to commit genocide and the crimes against humanity of extermination and persecution, the U.N.’s International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals said in a statement. He faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment if convicted. Kabuga was arrested outside Paris in May on a warrant issued by the mechanism, a U.N. court that deals with cases remaining from now-closed temporary courts that prosecuted atrocities committed during the Balkan wars of the 1990s and the Rwandan genocide. He allegedly armed and incited militias involved in the genocide when more than 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus who tried to protect them were slaughtered. He denies the charges.

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — An 87-year-old Rwandan genocide suspect being held in France will be sent temporarily to a United Nations court in the Netherlands for a medical assessment amid concerns about his health and the coronavirus pandemic, a judge ruled Wednesday. Félicien Kabuga, one of the most wanted fugitives in Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, was arrested outside Paris in May after 25 years on the run. He faces charges of genocide and crimes against humanity for allegedly equipping militias that killed more than 800,000 ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus who tried to protect them. Kabuga has denied involvement in the genocide. A court in Paris approved Kabuga’s extradition to the International Residual Mechanism for Criminal Tribunals in Arusha, Tanzania. But his French lawyer, citing fears that Kabuga could contract COVID-19 in Tanzania and other health issues, argued that the suspect should instead be sent to the Hague detention unit of the mechanism.

    Share Tweet Share Share E-mail Anesthesia is one of the greatest mysteries of neuroscience. Despite the fact that health professionals have been using it every day for more than 150 years, the molecular mechanism, by which general anesthetics produce their effects, is not clear. Beyond being a medical dilemma that could lead to the design of better anesthetics, the mechanism of anesthesia can be related to the way we sleep, the nature of consciousness and the conditions related to these states. The first successful demonstration of an anesthetic to cause loss of consciousness it was in 1846. Later, the researchers observed that the potency of the anesthetics is related to the lipid solubility, which are present in the membranes of the body’s cells. This led to the “lipid hypothesis” of the general anesthetic action, but precisely how the changes in the lipids of the membrane generate unconsciousness remains a mystery. However, a recent study published in the PNAS journal, Describe the mechanism behind general anesthesia in detail.. An unprecedented fact. The proposed mechanism is...
    LG’s upcoming “Wing” smartphone is expected to be a dual-screen device with a swiveling mechanism, and the screen that flips around could be surprisingly thin, as shown in new leaks of the phone. Take a look for yourself in this video — when this person, who appears to have the phone, shows a side profile of the device, you can see that the rotating screen appears to be quite thin: The video also gives us a good look at the Wing’s swiveling mechanism in action, which allows one screen to rotate 90 degrees horizontally above another screen so they can align in a T-like shape. And in an image shared by leaker Evan Blass, included at the top of this post, you can get another peek of the thin-looking side profile of the device. Blass’ image also indicates that the Wing will have a triple-camera setup, come in two colors, and support 5G networks. In August, Android Authority posted a purported video of the device, though that video just showed the phone in a car cradle, and it was...

    (CNN)Engineers have designed a robot with flapping wings, which can perform nimble movements in the air, hovering, darting, diving and recovering like a bird or an insect.Humans have been trying to perfect flight for centuries. Leonardo da Vinci sketched plans for the first human-powered, flapping-wing aircraft, known as an ornithopter, more than 500 years ago. Still, it has proved difficult to achieve aerobatic motion in ornithopters because of the difficulty of steadying a set of flapping wings. Instead, many modern flying robots, including drones, are powered by propellers. An international team of researchers built the lightweight robotic ornithopter, which has crisscrossed wings enabling it to perform aerobatic maneuvers using a newly developed elastic mechanism, which minimizes wobble. The mechanism replaced the rigid and unsteady crank rocker mechanism usually found in such devices.Police used drones to monitor nudity at a Minnesota beachIn a paper published Wednesday in Science Robotics journal, researchers from universities in Singapore, Australia, China and Taiwan said the new design hails a more stable and nimble future of robotic flight, more akin to bats and insects than robots....
