First of all there are more then one type of Mafia in Italy: Camorra, Cosa Nostra, ´Ndrageda (do not worry this last one it is difficult to pronounce even for me) and many others.
I have some information, and I would like to do a good job, but please do not expect perfection and polite tips are very welcomed.
Camorra: the hearquarter is in Naples and for further information I would advise to read Gomorra by Roberto Saviano.
There are more then 200 families taking active part of Camorra.
The turnover generated by Camorra should be at least around 20 billions euros.
Keep in mind the mafias have profit from the financial crisis, people should survive and they become desperate and willing to do whatever to survive.
Cosa Nostra: there are around 5000 people working in la Cosa Nostra, the headquarter is in Sicily.
The turnover generated by Cosa nostra should be at least around 20 billions of euros, which is 1/4 of Sicily Gdp and it tends to grow further.
Colombian criminal gangs have a frightening secret weapon, a drug called scopolamine. This incredibly potent drug causes suggestibility leaving it's consumers in a state resembling hypnosis. The gangs use the drug in form of a powder and blow it at an individual who then unwillingly breathes it in. Under the influence, the drug person follows instructions they are being given without any protest and are capable of committing numerous crimes as if they were under a spell. The affected individual will also answer any questions, for instance reveal their bank account information and similar incriminating data. Once the drug wears off, the victims have no recollection anything that had happen. The horrifying drug is capable of turning anyone into a victim of dangerous manipulation.
Vitamins are a good source of necessary micronutrients which our body needs for better health. We need vitamins to keep our body healthy and disease free. Vitamin K is one of them which helps in blood clotting process, and also provide several other health benefits. The following information provides the details about the functions, benefits and sources of Vitamin K.
Imagine a religion that combined psychotherapy, cryptocurrencies and anarchism. I would like to build a new religion for our age. Perhaps you would like to help?
Religions are temporary bridging technologies that allow primitive cultures to advance towards more intelligent cultures. However, most of our current religions are from eras we have already advanced from. As a result, many of us view religion as absurd and archaic. Religion has lost its purpose because it no longer addresses us in the present.
In other words, in terms of religious sophistication, we're still using the typewriter in the age of the microcomputer. But, before we look at what a modern religion might consist of, here's some radical definitions.
Religions, in their effective form, use myth and storytelling to re-liga (from the Latin 're-connect') people to their environment, their bodies, and each other. However, problems arise whe
Cassini spacecraft has had its last close Titan flyby at 979 kilometers above the moon's surface. During this flyby, Titan's gravity bent its trajectory, so now, Cassini will begin a series of the last 22 dives between the rings and the planet. The encounter accelerated spacecraft - Cassini received increase of velocity approximately of 860 m/s with respect to Saturn.
The first dive will happen on April 26. The last - Sept.15, when Cassini will burn in the atmosphere.
Earl Maize, Cassini project manager at JPL:
With this flyby we're committed to the Grand Finale. The spacecraft is now on a ballistic path, so that even if we were to forgo future small course adjustments using thrusters, we would still enter Saturn's atmosphere on Sept. 15 no matter what.

CF-11 column purification은 virus가 감염된 filamentous fungus, Botrytis cinerea 등에서 빠르게 dsRNA를 분리할 수 있는 방법으로, CF11 cellulose fiber powder를 resin으로 사용하여 dsRNA를 핵산들 속에서 선택적으로 분리할 수 있는 방법입니다. Whatmantm 사의 powder는 alcohol 존재 시 RNA, DNA가 binding하게 합니다.
실험 재료로는 CF-11 column(Whatmantm), 1 tube, 2 tube, TSE buffer, ethanol를 준비하였습니다.
먼저 Tube setting을 시작하였습니다. 냉동고에 저장되어 있던 2 tube (2X ethanol)을 centrifugation (12K, 10min)를 꺼내어 상등액을 버리고, 뒤집어서 dry 시킵니다. TSE 2ml를 넣어서 녹인 후 100㎕를 따서 3 tube로 labeling 후 냉동보관합니다. 냉동고에 있던 1 tube와 전 과정 후 남은 2 tube용액을 purification 합니다.

The flying vehicle was just recently unveiled and it's expected to launch for sale later this year. The price for the vehicle hasn't been revealed yet, that won't come until later.
The vehicle is an ultralight aircraft and so those who want to operate them don't need to have a pilot's license in order to do so. Kitty Hawk has already been offering a priority waiting list to folks who want to sign-up for a $100 3-year membership. From that they would also get a $2000 discount on the retail price of the vehicle when it gets released.
Kitty Hawk has a mission and that's to make the dream of personal flight one of real
I was a product of the 80's, so naturally, Bill Nye, the Science Guy occupied a place as near and dear to my heart as Mr Wizard. In fact, even more so, because his show was shot in Seattle, and I, being a young Washingtonian, thought that was a pretty cool thing.
Well, apparently Bill has a new show!
Imagine my elation! Are we going to learn about why helium makes your voice get all high and mousy? Or how gravity pulls a rock and a feather to the ground at the same velocity in a vacuum? Or maybe what's going on with an Altoid bottle rocket?!?!?!?!
And then this happened...
I don't know if this is supposed to be a science show or what. Like, are they trying to sell it that way? Like a science show?
Because this looks like a heavy-handed dose of virtue signaling and narrative massaging. And not even good at that. Or amusing. This is actually somehow worse than a
This video, produced by Merkaba Film Group.com and CPC was made to honor Serbian humanitarian Milos Supica, as well as the incredible legacy of Nikola Tesla who is responsible for everything technical you do today, from starting your car, to turning on a light...to your wifi internet! To name a few.
Milos Supica and his Non Proffit Direct Effect USA wins Tesla Medal honor 2015
Milos Supica, founder of DIRECT EFFECT USA has been helping Serbian children trapped in a war torn zone for years. Please help Milos feed, cloth and bring joy, compassion and kindness to the children who need it! God Bless you Milos and keep up the great work!

Up in the sky, look: It's a bird. It's a plane. It's ... Steve? Such is the name being given to a newly discovered night sky phenomenon, and Alberta citizen photographers are being given credit for the discovery. In photos, "Steve" shows up as a bright purple-pink streak across the sky — a light that would often appear in photos posted to the Alberta Aurora Chasers Facebook page. The group's photographers began to notice Steve a few years ago, administrator Chris Ratzlaff told The Huffington Post Canada, but it wasn't until a talk at the University of Calgary in 2015 that the scientific community took interest. Ratzlaff said the group's members approached U of C physicist Eric Donovan and NASA's Elizabeth MacDonald, who works with the agency's citizen aurora project, Aurorasaurus, with some photos of Steve.
Matrix World Disclosure posted an interesting video on the amazing Nikola Tesla whom I regard to be one of the greatest scientists of our time. Watching this will not assist you in learning more about Nikola but how he influenced our lives both past and present.
What is crack and freebase Cocaine? Is it true that it creates irrecoverable zombies?
If a couple of coke leaves are taken and macerated in organic solvents like kerosene and diesel fuel, some alkaline substances, sulfuric acid and ammonia, stir it, filter it and let dry; we get freebase cocaine: a yellowish white powder, pasty and of strong odor, that contains a variable of cocaine that can be smoked (with a pipe, bong or mixed with tobacco or marijuana).
Instead, to acquire cocaine chlorhydrate we need to keep purifying this
base mix using acid solutions. Unlike the freebase, cocaine chlorhydrate is in form of salt and degrades at high temperatures; therefore, there's no chance of smoking it. If we add ammonia and other alkaline substances like sodium bicarbonate to the wall street cocaine, we get crack, another shape of smokable cocaine with similar effects
Over 1 billion people on Earth lack access to clean drinking water . Insufficient infrastructure and/or pollution contribute to the problem.
According to former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan: “Water-related diseases kill a child every eight seconds, and are responsible for 80 per cent of all illnesses and deaths in the developing world –- a situation made all the more tragic by our long-standing knowledge that these diseases are easily preventable.” 
The World Health Organization reports: “More than five million human beings die from illnesses linked to u
Not long ago I wrote a detailed article about our plastic problem and some interesting observations of plastic digesting organisms.
Just recently the female Italian biologist and hobby beekeeper Federica Bertocchini found larvae of the wax moth Galleria mellonella in a bee-hive and put them into a plastic bag. She was very surprised to see that after a while there appeared many holes in the bag.
Larva of Galleria mellonella:

Maple syrup is indispensable for pancakes. Authentic maple syrup is a mysterious food made by boiling down sap flower sap for a long time, but it may be a different indication than syrup made with just sugar. It turned out that there was a possibility that maple syrup could become a trump card for repelling the so-called " superbug " bacteria that antibiotics do not work.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2 million people in the United States die each year due to superbugs, of which 23,000have died. So Ms. Nathalie Tufenkji from the McGill University of Canada focused on the ingredients of maple syrup with the clues that indigenous people in Canada were drinking maple syrup as a measure against infectious diseases. And
Massivit continues to surprise the 3D printing market. This time with the impression in less than 48H printed all the constituent parts of this master piece!
The statue was printed in several pieces and later joined. The surface of the part was coated with car filler to eliminate the characteristic layers of layer printing. After the joining of all the pieces, the coating, sanding the statue and the placement of support bars had passed 6 days! It took more or less 8 days to get the statue ready.
We are facing the begin of a new era of industry! The 3D printing will be the fourth industrial revolution. But this time is not just for the factories, is for everybody. Everybody could be a manufactor, your house could be a factory.
Most lung cancer patients die within five years of diagnosis. One of the main reasons for this is the insidious and largely symptom-free onset of the disease, which often remains unnoticed. In the USA, high-risk groups, such as heavy smokers, are therefore routinely examined by CAT scan. However, patients can be wrongly classified as having the disease.
Together with cooperation partners, researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research have now developed a breath test that is much more accurate. In their research, the diagnosis of lung cancer was correct in nine out of ten cases. The method is therefore reliable enough to be used for the routine early detection of lung cancer.
The researchers analyzed RNA molecules released from lung tissue into expired breath, noting differences between healthy subjects and lung cancer patients. Unlike DNA, the RNA profile is not identical in every cell. Several RNA variants, and therefor
Heads up: 22MB of photos in this post.
I went to downtown St. Paul on Saturday to participate in the Minnesota March for Science. I brought my camera along to take photos and be a citizen journalist of sorts. I took a few snapshot photos at the 2008 RNC protests, also in St. Paul, but nothing like it for that long.
The march got its start at the St. Paul Cathedral, pictured below, and ended down the street at the Minnesota State Capitol.
On the way there, one of the youngest marchers.
The amount of signs was impressive!
It was a completely peaceful protest. I only noticed a handful o
