🍲 ((Smol science man is going to die if he doesn't pause his shot spree and have some soup :T))
Wilson staggered slightly back trying to grab the soup from the mime. He smiled taking the bowl from his friend, “ Awwwh shank*hic* thanks…you’re so nice..” He rested his forehead on Wes shoulder,“ I feel so sick.” He said leaning sideways and completely falling over. ( ofp: Science nerd down!!)
Quirky Science Inspired Glassware by Geoff and Kristen Zephyrus
Portland-based couple Kristen and Geoff Zephyrus create quirky science inspired glassware as a full-time job. A trained graphic designer and glass expert from MassArt, Geoff is the artist, while Kristen is the brains, behind the quirky and intelligent collaboration. Their motto is to create “smart gifts for smart people” with a whimsical sensibility.
Scientifically accurate, the glassware pays homage to calculus and chemistry equations. Dabbing into puns, each piece contains the chemistry equation of its designated liquid, i.e., the mug is scripted with the chemical formula of caffeine; whereas the tall glass is etched with “H2O”, the most famous chemical compound.
In addition to the cleverly composed glassware, the duo celebrates some of the most brilliant minds who have contributed to science. Engraved in tall beer glasses are the portraits of Charles Darwin, Nikola Tesla, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein and Rosalind Franklin.
Overall each creation begs the companion of a lab partner to grab a cup of coffee with, have a glass of wine with or a chilled beer. You can find their entire collection in their Etsy shop.
I just want an Avengers spin off of just Tony and Bruce doing sciencey shit in their lab together, eating blueberries and geeking out over the fact that someone FINALLY understands their nerd-talk. Is that too much to ask
In the Science paper, researchers confirmed this finding….
Andrea Manica, a population geneticist at the University of Cambridge, UK, who co-led the study, says the team made a mistake in its conclusion that the backflow reached western and central Africa. “The movement 3,000 years ago, or thereabouts, was limited to eastern Africa,” he says.
Pontus Skoglund, a population geneticist at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, says that he was surprised by the claim that as much as 6–7% of the ancestry of West and Central African groups came from the Eurasian migrants. But after obtaining the Mota man’s genome from Manica’s team, he and his colleague David Reich carried out their own comparison and found no evidence for that conclusion. They informed Manica’s team, who then discovered the processing error.
“Almost all of us agree there was some back-to-Africa gene flow, and it was a pretty big migration into East Africa,” says Skoglund. “But it did not reach West and Central Africa, at least not in a detectable way.” The error also undermines the paper’s original conclusion that many Africans carry Neanderthal DNA (inherited from Eurasians whose ancestors had interbred with the group).
it was software and human error. this is why reproducibilityis a big deal and why your methods need to make sense. if they’re so specific and weird they can’t be redone by someone else you’re making your findings nearly useless.
