Amber is fossilized tree resin, which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, amber is made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is used in jewelry. It has also been used as a healing agent in folk medicine. There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. Amber occurring in coal seams is also called resinite, and the term ambrite is applied to that found specifically within New Zealand coal seams.

Parece até que foi esculpido a mão: fotografia divulgada pela NASA exibiu a imagem de um iceberg "perfeito" flutuando na Antártida. O bloco de gelo aparenta ser perfeitamente retangular, com uma superfície lisa e bordas retas. O registro foi publicado nas redes sociais da agência espacial norte-americana e fez sucesso entre os usuários. Ainda que seja um registro raro na natureza, não há nada de anormal com a imagem: apesar de os blocos de gelo mais conhecidos possuírem uma estrutura irregular e pontiguada, há outra categoria de icebergs conhecidos como "tabulares", que são consideradas grandes placas congeladas com topo plano e linhas retas. Os cientistas afirmam que o maior iceberg tabular já registrado possuía 11 mil quilômetros quadrados — o equivalente a 1,1 milhão de campos de futebol. Na foto divulgada pela NASA, o bloco de gelo tem dimensões mais modestas, mas ainda assim impressiona por sua imponência. Fonte | Galileu
So i found out, if you go to taco bell, and get everything that costs extra put on it, and double up everything, you can make a $2 burrito cost $24.24.
In case you were wondering.
Wow. These guys go hard it's too funny. I got quite the odd phonecall when I took a screenshot to draw on it. Then an app I use half works. So I use my PC. No way they can stop me. Lol. When I go there. Put the link and hit download, bc I want to edit something I already done but it was going to bring the entire illuminapyramid crumbling down once I got the message out in perspective... yeah for some reason I my antivirus started blocking viruses everytime I clicked. It's like going to YouTube and all of a sudden everytime you click play, you get a virus. Lmao.... I'll finish them off at some point. I dont know if I care enough...shoot, I was going to set them up, so that @jimcarreyhere can knock them down.
@arianagrande darling... Its bugging me. Like I want to know (talking to myself). Also, just letting you know, we are kinda entangled, so good luck with anyone else but me... anyhow, have you seen the movies Hercules or Aladdin...the old Disney ones... I got a pokeball, you thought I was kidding 🇻🇪 #21century#venezuela#quantum#intellectual#philosophy#ayahuasca#science#comedy#health#prosperity#faith#love#life#happy#joy#vacation#breakfast#fun#world#universe#truth#truthbetold 🇻🇪

Curiosity is a car-sized rover designed to explore the Gale Crater on Mars. It was launched from Cape Canaveral on November 26, 2011 and landed in the crater on August 6, 2012. Its mission involves an investigation of the Martian climate and geology, assessment of whether the planet has ever offered environmental conditions favourable for microbial life and planetary habitability studies in preparation for human exploration! In December 2012, Curiosity's original 2 year mission was extended indefinitely and the rover remains operational to this day. Mars' most famous inhabitant travelled 560 million Km to reach the planet and after 8 months of travel it managed to land less than 2.4 Km away from its designated landing site.

Time evolution of a bias frame. Both of these we taken at -20C about 6 months apart. Both are stacks of 200 with identical rejection. The left is the new one and the right is the old one. The new one has less of that banding, the weird column slightly better but has more hot pixels. The noise is nearly identical, but the bias features are changing very slightly over time. The change in that banding could be why I had banding in my IC443 OIII exposures. There is very little OIII in IC443 and the region where this banding exists is basically background, and it looks like I may have injected them into my frames. #astronomy#astrophotography#astrophysics#astrophotographer#science#stem#physics#space#nasa#celestronuniverse#optics#galaxy@sbigimagingsystems

Bottoms Up hooks up to any standard beer keg and uses unique cups to work its magic. There’s a hole in the bottom of each cup surrounded by a metal ring. The cup snaps into the dispenser, which fills it with beer and automatically stops pouring at a pre-programmed amount. The final secret is a flat, circular magnet that seals the cup’s hole when the bartender lifts it. Bottoms Up can pour up to 44 glasses per minute with a single bartender. On its website, the company claims its device can save bar owners money by leading to less wasted beer from bad pours and excess foam. Bottoms Up also promises to raise revenues by 30 percent for its users. Vid Cred: @bottomsupbeer

Salvador e região metropolitana já registraram pelo menos 90 casos de uma doença misteriosa, que causa lesões semelhantes a picadas de insetos, seguidas de manchas vermelhas e coceira. Segundo as secretarias municipal e estadual de saúde, os casos começaram a aparecer no início de outubro, em pessoas com idades entre 4 e 64 anos. Até o momento, ainda não se sabe o que causa a enfermidade e não foram documentadas mortes nem evoluções para quadros mais graves. Os sintomas relatados são coceira e vermelhidão, mas "não há reclamação de febre, dor de cabeça ou muscular e conjuntivite", afirmou ao UOL Cristiane Cardoso, subcoordenadora da Vigilância Epidemiológica da Secretaria Municipal de Saúde. A especialista fala em surto da doença e explica que os pacientes apresentam melhora espontânea dentro de cinco ou seis dias. Cristiane ressaltou que não há qualquer indício de que a doença seja contagiosa. Devido às características das lesões, a principal suspeita é de que a enfermidade seja causada por um inseto. Como nenhum morador relatou uma espécie em particular, as autoridades acreditam que se trata de um mosquito de difícil visualização. Segundo a Secretaria de Estado da Saúde (Sesab), nenhuma das amostras de sangue coletadas deu resultado positivo para as arborviroses transmitidas pelo mosquito Aedes aegypti, como a zika, chikungunya, dengue e febre amarela. No entanto, há ainda quatro amostras a serem analisadas pelo Laboratório Central de Saúde Pública (Lacen).

Feels like Christmas!!! For those women who want to test their #BRCA1 and #BRCA2 whole sequences I recommend Color. Other #Genetic tests (like 23 and me) only test for 3 variations:
I don’t think it was enough. I love the fact that @color includes full sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis of the entire BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, and can even detect new and previously unpublished variants, not just the most common ones. Innovations are there to be used! So use them wisely and check out the latest article from a dear Doctor:

Friday we celebrated this strong, intelligent and creative lady. I remember holding her purple body in my arms, trying to fight and advocate, but not yet having developed my voice to defender her. I have learned over the years to advocate better for her; to speak up for her strength instead of apologizing for it, to help her navigate and use this same strength to honor herself and those around her, and to fight my own sin to help her learn and grow rather than just dismissing her as, “too much.” She is a walking billboard that strong, smart little girls don’t need their fire to be put out, just guided and directed to ignite changes in the world. And change the world she will. She has no problem standing up for what she knows is right, and isn’t afraid of ruffling a few feathers. She loves to paint her nails and wear pink, but she works hard without a thought of being covered in dirt and grime. She loves so hard and so fierce and is the best protector of her little bunny. Her thoughts are deep and her heart big. She wants to make baby dolls and send them around the world for all the children who don’t have one. She has five purses filled with treasures from who knows where and she won’t throw any away. You can hear her before you see her and when she senses that mamá needs a little extra love she will wash a 100 dishes to lighten the load. One favorite memory of this year was when I was laying in bed, crying and frustrated after a long day. She held my hand and started rubbing my arm. I said, “Thank you baby, but you can sleep.” And she replied, “No. I would rather do this. It’s better.”

“Perhaps there is no such thing as an easy or hard discipline. Maybe there are only easy and hard questions. Biology only seems so hard because it has been defined by a set of very hard questions. Physics only seems easy because centuries of effort by deeply insightful thinkers have produced a set of answerable questions.”
“We don’t know if black holes are simpler than forests. We can’t know, until we have a general effective theory that explains the existence of forests or until we can observe the most detailed dynamics of black-hole collapse and evaporation. A statement of relative complexity cannot be made without thoroughly defining the type of questions we are asking for each system.” 🌌
“Observing the strange similarity of phenomena across disciplines might incline us to search for brand new mechanisms and principles. This will sometimes demand a less detailed, more abstract perspective.”

Volevo scrivere una frase spirituale o magari sulla vita o comunque qualcosa riguardante lo yoga . Ma poi mi sono reso conto che la posizione delle mie dita più che ricordare una posizione di meditazione , assomiglia a due coniglietti delle ombre cinesi 😂🐰 quindi la caption di questa foto sarà : bugs bunny VS roger rabbit 😂😂😂 tagga anche te un amico influencer che fa una foto di qualcosa che non sa fare 😂😂😂

Voyage of the Moons. Created using still images taken by the Cassini spacecraft during it's flyby of Jupiter and while at Saturn. Shown is Io and Europa over Jupiter's Great Red Spot and then Titan as it passes over Saturn and it's edge-on rings.
This is sort of an experiment since I haven't done any actual video in a while and to see if I can do it and if it actually looks good. Hopefully you like it :-) NASA/JPL-Caltech/SSI/CICLOPS/Kevin M. Gill

Severe ankle dislocation! Dislocation or dislocation of the ankle occurs when an external force displaces the joint surfaces, usually when the person 'stumbles' by turning his foot out on uneven ground or on a step. This is more common in women who are wearing high heels, but it can also happen during planting and cutting exercises, as well as running!
