Adaaaa! Make the internet work! It’ll listen to you!
//Hey friends, I’ve taken to referring to the girls as Kennick!Name while they’re at that school.
Randomly thought I should let you know XD
//I want to make an AU where instead of just being able to phase though solid matter, Billie further develops the skill, and can also phase into other universes/dimensions/worlds/whateveryouwannacallthem.
Not sure how rp-able such a thing is though =/ Or when to have that ability be discovered. (I could always just make some more AU AUs XD)
And I’d need to figure out some limitations for that world phasing, because wow there has to be a rule for that.
Hey Crime fiction writers. Here’s an oft-cited reference chart to show you what different bullets look like going in and coming out.
"I am a writer…" I whisper as I reblog this.
"I am a murderer…" I realize as I reblog this.
//Just a head’s up, I’m going to be doing a lot of bouncing around from rp account to rp account today, doing maintenance, profiling, writing stuff up and such. So if you miss one of my appearances here, I’ll likely be back in a bit for another round before absconding to another again.
The Joker stopped at that one, but only because she wanted to express her disdain in that withering way only cats could manage. Precious kitty? Really? Was this woman some sort of cat molester? If the Joker had been turned into a dog, she’d have run up and used this person’s leg like a fire hydrant.
The movement of the woman’s fingers did catch the clown-cat’s eyes. She realized she had no idea what it felt like to be petted, and her new cat instincts were excited at the prospect. But she wasn’t about to let just anyone pet her. Especially some lady who seemed insistent on scooping her up.
"Mrow," she said, twitching her whiskers.
Billie quirked an eyebrow in disbelief as the cat stopped and turned around. Was it the gushy voice that caught it’s attention, or the wiggling fingers? She could figure it out once she brought the yellow ball of fluff back home; now was not the time to run cat experiments.
"Yes, good itty bitty kitty," Billie continued on with the voice and flailing the fingers of her right hand as she slowly inched forward. Hoping to distract the feline with the movement, she moved her other hand out of-what she assumed was-it’s peripheral vision, preparing to scoop her up around the middle and off the ground.
Radioactivity and radiation are often used interchangeably, but they describe different (yet related) processes.
But before going into this difference, it’s useful to understand what atoms are and a few concepts about how they behave.
An atom is the smallest particle that can be described as a chemical. Smaller particles aren’t chemicals in the same way that wheels, windscreens and seats aren’t cars – they are parts of them, but you need a few to make the whole.
At the centre of each atom is a nucleus, containing a number of protons (positively charged particles). The number of protons determines what chemical the atom is. All carbon nuclei contain six protons – it is what defines them as carbon nuclei. The nucleus also contains a number of neutrons (particle with no charge). Atoms of the same chemical can have different numbers of neutrons. Atoms of the same chemical with different numbers of neutrons are known as isotopes.
Surrounding the nucleus are very small negatively charged particles called electrons. These are held in place (called orbitals) by their attraction to the positively charged nucleus. An atom contains as many electrons as protons. Adding or removing an electron from the atom results in a charged particle, called an ion. Ions can react very differently to atoms. A chlorine atom is very reactive and dangerous; a chloride ion is part of table salt. This becomes important when talking about ionising radiation later.
So, what is radioactivity?
'Quiet' Black Holes May Be Lurking Throughout Galaxy
Although black holes emit no light, all those that are several times more massive than the sun came to attention because hot gas falling into them gives off x-rays. That’s how astronomers found the first black hole, Cygnus X-1; no less an authority than the rock band Rush declared that “the x-ray is her siren song.”
Now, for the first time, astronomers have managed to discover a stellar-mass black hole without using x-ray observations. Located 8500 light-years from Earth, the dark object orbits a bright, blue star named MWC 656 that spins so fast it flings gas (colored red in this artist’s conception) around itself; additional gas (colored blue) swirls around the black hole but doesn’t fall in, explaining the lack of x-rays.
By measuring Doppler shifts of the two gaseous disks as they orbit each other every 60.37 days, the scientists deduce that the dark object weighs 3.8 to 6.9 times more than the sun—massive enough to be a black hole, the researchers report online today in Nature. The discovery suggests that many other equally quiescent black holes inhabit the galaxy, unknown to astronomers.
The symphony of life, revealed
Like the strings on a violin or the pipes of an organ, the proteins in the human body vibrate in different patterns, scientists have long suspected.
Now, a new study provides what researchers say is the first conclusive evidence that this is true.
Using a technique they developed based on terahertz near-field microscopy, scientists from the University at Buffalo and Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute (HWI) have for the first time observed in detail the vibrations of lysozyme, an antibacterial protein found in many animals.
The team found that the vibrations, which were previously thought to dissipate quickly, actually persist in molecules like the “ringing of a bell,” said UB physics professor Andrea Markelz, PhD, wh0 led the study.
These tiny motions enable proteins to change shape quickly so they can readily bind to other proteins, a process that is necessary for the body to perform critical biological functions like absorbing oxygen, repairing cells and replicating DNA, Markelz said.
The research opens the door to a whole new way of studying the basic cellular processes that enable life.
I’m still excited when I get a new follower.
I’m still happy when a post of mine actually gets notes.
And I still appreciate each and every one of you who continues to follow me no matter how silly, or annoying, or weird I am.
