Mitochondria may have once been energy parasites

"We believe this study has the potential to change the way we think about the event that led to mitochondria," said U.Va. biologist Martin Wu, the study’s lead author. "We are saying that the current theories — all claiming that the relationship between the bacteria and the host cell at the very beginning of the symbiosis was mutually beneficial — are likely wrong.

"Instead, we believe the relationship likely was antagonistic — that the bacteria were parasitic and only later became beneficial to the host cell by switching the direction of the ATP transport."

I did an at home #yoga online class for 30 minutes it was very different than my usual going to the gym {which I haven’t gone this year} I wanted to start creating balance in my life and that’s why I decided to start here. I always knew I had stretch marks but for some reason I notice my body a little more today. Anyways I love the fact I still love every bit of me. ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ˜Šโ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ #namaste #energy #meditation #soul #me #selfloveisthebestlove ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Opal was formed many millions of years ago, when a combination of silica and water flowed into cracks and spaces in the ground. This then gradually hardened and solidified to become opal.

Opal is known to soothe the emotional body by drawing in the full spectrum of light energy into the aura. It is common for one to experience an increased will to live life to the fullest while wearing this pendant. One may also experiences flashes of intuition and insights.

Opal has a way a magnifying ones personal attributes, whether positive or negative for self examination. This is extremely useful when going through personal transformation.

Man Creates The First Ever Leaf That Turns Light and Water Into Oxygen

"If humanity hopes to realize its dreams of exploring the stars, we’re going to need to find ways to recreate life on Earth aboard a spaceship. Simply stockpiling enough vital supplies isn’t going to cut it, which is what led Julian Melchiorri, a student at the Royal College of Art, to create an artificial biological leaf that produces oxygen just like the ones on our home planet do."

YES. Let’s get off this planet, shall we?ย 

Ultra-fast charging batteries that can be 70% recharged in just two minutes

Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) have developed a new battery that can be recharged up to 70 per cent in only 2 minutes. The battery will also have a longer lifespan of over 20 years.

Expected to be the next big thing in battery technology, this breakthrough has a wide-ranging impact on many industries, especially for electric vehicles which are currently inhibited by long recharge times of over 4 hours and the limited lifespan of batteries.

This next generation of lithium-ion batteries will enable electric vehicles to charge 20 times faster than the current technology. With it, electric vehicles will also be able to do away with frequent battery replacements. The new battery will be able to endure more than 10,000 charging cycles — 20 times more than the current 500 cycles of today’s batteries.

NTU Singapore’s scientists replaced the traditional graphite used for the anode (negative pole) in lithium-ion batteries with a new gel material made from titanium dioxide, an abundant, cheap and safe material found in soil. It is commonly used as a food additive or in sunscreen lotions to absorb harmful ultraviolet rays.

Naturally found in a spherical shape, NTU Singapore developed a simple method to turn titanium dioxide particles into tiny nanotubes that are a thousand times thinner than the diameter of a human hair.

This nanostructure is what helps to speeds up the chemical reactions taking place in the new battery, allowing for superfast charging.

Invented by Associate Professor Chen Xiaodong from the School of Materials Science and Engineering at NTU Singapore, the science behind the formation of the new titanium dioxide gel was published in the latest issue of Advanced Materials, a leading international scientific journal in materials science.
