photosynthesis summary/light-dependent reactions

photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts of plants. it takes place in two parts - light reactions that happen in the thylakoids and the calvin cycle. in light dependent reactions, light from the sun excites electrons in photosystem II. during this time, two water molecules are split into four hydrogen ions, four electrons, and oxygen. the electrons are used to replace any lost electrons in PII, the hydrogen is released into the lumen, and oxygen is released as a byproduct. the energized electrons move down the electron transport chain, where they pull in hydrogen ions to the lumen as well. in photosystem I, the electrons are added to NADP+ to make NADPH. H+ ions in the lumen flow down the concentration gradient and power ATP syntheses, which makes ATP. the NADPH is used in the calvin cycle along with carbon dioxide and ATP to make glucose, until they return to the light dependent reactions as NADP+ and ADP.

SeKaiYeol vs Light

taeyong || light blue

a/n: I saw the quote “no you’re not perfect but you’re not your mistakes” and immediately thought of taeyong because of the mistakes he made when he was younger. He still beats himself up about it and apologizes but no one seems to be able to forgive him and I think we should all find it in our hearts to forgive him and realize we’ve all made mistakes, but it’s wrong to constantly torment people about the mistakes they’ve made.

The Signs With // Superpowers

Aries: Fire Manipulation - Users can create, shape and manipulate fire, the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products, flame being the visible portion of the fire. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fire’s intensity will be different.

Taurus: Psychometry - The user obtains historical memories or sensations concerning beings and objects they can observe by their senses. With objects they gain the knowledge including the makers, users, and even those who have on passing used the object, and what has been done with it. With living beings or parts of the body the user learns their general life-history, but doesn’t gain anything of what they were thinking or feeling.

Gemini: Metamorphosis - User can enhance themselves and others via accelerated evolution process by triggering a bodily recovery system, resetting their genome and upgrading to a better physical form. Upgrading can lead to new physical enhancements. High end wielders of this ability can control the very flow and essence of progressive mutation.

Cancer: Animal Morphing - The user can transform into animals, as well as use the abilities, traits and appearance/physiology of animals by rearranging their own DNA structure. Some may have this ability from an empty genetic code, allowing them to accept any form from which they have a DNA sample, others may be able to alter their form mentally and change just by seeing and mimicking animal features.

Leo: Summoning - The user can transport person, creature, or object of choice by means of Teleportation, Dimensional Travel, Portal Creation or some other way. This may also result from a previous summoning contract, which creates a connection between the summon and summoner. High level users may not be bound by restrictions such as a contract, and can summon anything they want, including powerful beings or “familiar spirits” and often require strong mystic connections to where these entities reside. Users can call upon fairies, angels, demons, or animal spirits, just to name a few. The summoning can backfire, however, leading to any number of misfortunes, such as the summoned person, creature, or item causing harm to the summoner.

Virgo: Substance Mimicry - User is or can transform their body completely into fundamental elements, including air, earth, electricity, fire, light, shadow, water, etc. User’s transformed form can be either anatomically identical to their normal form, aside of being made of element, in which case it contains all organs and is somewhat vulnerable to attacks. Alternately user can transform into homogenous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other.

Libra: Empathy - The user can fully interpret and replicate the emotions, moods, and temperaments of others without reading apparent symptoms, allowing them to understand introverts or discover one emotion is actually hiding another. They can attack someone in a personal and emotional way since they know exactly what emotion is flowing through themselves and can use this knowledge to play against them. Some users may learn to read emotional imprints left into environment or objects. Usually over time, an Empath’s power grows to the point that they can manipulate emotions on others, and possibly use them to empower themselves. User may learn to extend their power over/on vast number of sentient beings or reach extreme distances, even other levels of existence but this may be possible only if the user has emotional link to those they search already in effect.

Scorpio: Elemental Blast - The user can release their elements/energy over a specific target area causing great damage and/or delivering great shock waves of pure force.

Aquarius: Intangibility - User is able to move through objects and ignore most physical effects in their way, exact means how this is done vary between slipping partially into other dimensions, being able to make their own particles move between other particles, being non-physical being of energy, vibrating their molecules into a new quantum frequency, etc. Regardless the user is able to ignore most attacks, physical dangers and gravity.

Pisces: Dream-World Lordship - User has duty and domain over the Dream-World, place where dreams come and go while it advances into the users own hands. User can very well control the Dream-World and the dreams that come and roam around freely, as well as nightmares and daydreams. Also can spy on dreams and come inside dreams as well.

Oscillating chemiluminescent reaction using a  luminol-H2O2-KSCN-CuSO4-NaOH system. 

Long ago, according to the second law of thermodynamics, chemical reactions could only go one way, from starting material A to product B, since in every natural thermodynamic process the sum of the entropies of all participating bodies is increased. The except is the oscillating reactions, a classical example of non-equilibrium thermodynamics.

In 1951 Boris Pavlovic Belousov noted, while investigating the citric acid circle, that in a mix of potassium bromate, cerium(IV) sulfate, malonic acid, and citric acid in dilute sulfuric acid, the ratio of concentration of the cerium(IV) and cerium(III) ions oscillated, causing the colour of the solution to oscillate between a yellow solution and a colorless solution. Belousov made two attempts to publish his finding, but was rejected on the grounds that he could not explain his results (because of the second law of thermodynamics) to the satisfaction of the editors of the journals to which he submitted his results.

During the last 60 years, several oscillating chemical reactions have been described, some of them uses luminol as a chemiluminescent indicator as seen on the above gif. Chemiluminescent reactions are also among the most fascinating demonstrations. Many of these demonstrations can be found in the Journal of Chemical Education.

Buzzed (GD Light Smut)

You giggled as you tripped over the dining room coffee table. Another knock came from the front door and you attempted to rush to open it, but in your drunken state you were still pretty slow.

“Come on babe it’s cold out here,” GD complained as you peered through the small window. You laughed and opened the door, stumbling into his arms. He was a bit confused by the way you were acting, that was until you made it evident that you had been drinking. 

“I missed you so much,” you confessed, your words slurring a bit. He shut the door behind him, the cold air brushing against your warm face as a slight gust came through and it felt like heaven.  “What took you so long,” you whined against his neck, your arms wrapped around him, preventing him from moving much further into the house.

He used his strength to make it into the living room and pull you down to the couch. “How much did you drink,” he asked in a slightly concerned tone. You just giggled in response and leaned in to whisper in his ear. “Answer my question first,” you quietly said in his ear before laughing again.

Somehow this aroused GD and he pulled back from you a bit. “I was at the studio longer than I had expected, I texted you earlier, but I guess you didn’t get it,” he said looking over at the almost empty liquor bottle. You nodded in satisfaction and then smiled at him. “My turn,” you announced proudly. 

You cleared your throat as if you were about to give an important speech. “Well, I was cleaning up the house and then I got bored. So I got this idea and here we are,” you explained vaguely. GD raised an eyebrow at you and had a small smirk on his lips. “What idea,” he asked cautiously. You laughed and patted his shoulder. “Are we playing twenty questions,” you asked in a high pitched voice.

GD chuckled a bit and shook his head. You looked him in the eyes and took a deep breath. “You know how I get when I’m drunk,” you started off, taking your hands and sliding them down the front of his shirt. GD shifted in his seat, knowing what you were insinuating. “I figured if I drank just enough, then when you got home I could surprise you. I think it worked. I am so horny baby,” you finished explaining, pulling yourself up and positioning yourself on his lap.

GD let out a small groan and placed his hands on your hips. “It definitely worked,” he assured you, leaning over and placing a kiss to your lips. You smiled against the kiss, but as he pulled you closer and the kiss deepened your whole attitude changed from light and giggly to dark and sexy. 

You pulled back from the kiss and stared him directly in the eyes. You reached up and pulled your hair free from the bun that you had fastened it in earlier. It fell to your shoulder and you shook your head a bit, tousling the hair and smirking sexily. This drove GD wild and he grabbed the back of your neck pulling you back down for another hot kiss.

The way your tongues swirled against each other was so hot that you could almost feel the temperature in the room rising. GD let his hands roam under your shirt and when he got to your bra, he slipped his hands under that as well. He massaged your breasts and made sure to give attention to your hardening nipples.

Once he broke the kiss the both of you were panting a bit from the heavy action. He gave you a very sensual look and picked you up, laying you across the sturdy coffee table that you had tripped on earlier. He reached his hands inside of your pants and gently rubbed you on top of your panties. He could feel how wet you were already and he gave a small moan of satisfaction. 

“Mmm babe, you are already so wet,” he commented, watching as you wiggled beneath his touch. The way he was teasing you was so erotic and you let out soft moans. “I am wet because of you baby,” you said to him, sitting up and pulling off your pants to give him easier access. He could feel his jeans get dangerously tight from the full on erection that was confined inside.

You slid off the table and sat on your knees. You looked at him sexily and then guided him to his feet. You unfastened his belt and then unbuttoned the jeans, pulling them down to his ankles. His hard on was evident and it was a miracle that he hadn’t popped out of his boxers already. You tugged the boxers down as well and took him into your hand. You opened your mouth and placed it around his tip. He groaned loudly and his hand went down to the back of your head.

You took more of him into your mouth and he let out another groan, a little louder this time. When you began bobbing your head, taking in his entire length each time you went down he moaned aloud. You loved hearing him moan like that. He could feel himself close to exploding and he pulled you off of him, helping you to your feet and kissing you passionately.

“You are going to get  pushing you down onto the couch. You smirked devilishly and looked him in the eyes. “Good, that means my plan worked,” you said in a dark tone before pulling him down on top of you.

“Now fuck me,” you whispered into his ear, you were more than ready.
