Misconception #6: Low Voltage Shocks Are Not Dangerous
![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmbdT9p4twHHUPbX1JjU3AFez21pXcLQGXBBKAJ7qkJhG5/image.png)

So today's post is regarding a wide-spread misconception, that is practically quite .. DANGEROUS. 

In fact, many people, myself included, are generally under the notion that low voltage, like one found in batteries, is quite safe to deal with. 

Heck I cannot count the times we had played with batteries as young kids. Parents  scold their kids to stay away from electric outlets, yet not so when it comes to batteries.

Well, the truth of the matter is that:

### Low Voltage Shocks Can Be Quite Dangerous!
###
So now that you've been warned, let us dig into the explanation.

**How Come?**

The main reason behind the risk is not merely the voltage, yet it is the current of electricity (measured in amperes/Amps or milliamps/mAmps). So even a battery with as low as 12V, while normally not fatal, can still cause some serious damage.
So to make it simpler, it is the amount of amps that can lead to muscle contraction, burned tis

Science Explains - Fish Rain
![Picture]( https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2013/10/29/23/16/fish-202654_960_720.jpg)

---
And another short series to keep you entertained while I’m on vacation! This time it’s titled **Science explains** and revolves around weird phenomena. I hope you’ll have as much fun reading it as I had researching!

---

It’s raining fish! Wait, what? Fish? Those should be in the water not raining down to the ground!

Although it seems like a weird story made up to collect some upvotes it really happened in Sri Lanka in 2014. And it wasn’t the first time this ever happened. There have been reports that a similar rain happened in the year 1900 in Providence, Rhode Island.

But how did this happen? How was it possible that fish with a weight of several kilograms are lifted up into the air and then dropped about a kilometer away from water?

Certain weather conditions can cause waterspouts or mini-tornados which, if they’re strong enough, pick up the local wildlife and carry them a significant distance before sp

Understanding Research - X kills Cancer
![Picture]( https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/07/24/16/50/coconut-oil-2535339_960_720.jpg)

*”This new drug has been shown to **kill cancer** cells.”*

Ah, yes, one of my favorite topics. Stuff that kills cancer. Nowadays, everything seems to kill cancer. Everything but chemotherapy. But why do people think this? An example:

>Metformin reduced the clonogenic survival of FSaII mouse fibrosarcoma cells and MCF-7 human breast cancer cells in dose and time-dependent manner as shown in Fig. 1. In FSaII cells (Fig. 1A), incubation with 1.0 mM metformin for 1 h reduced the clonogenic survival of cells to 65.1%, and incubation for 24 h or 48 h reduced the survival to 49.3% and 28.7%, respectively.

Okay, what does that mean? They incubated the cells with metformin. Incubating cells usually means putting them in a flask with the chemical they’re being incubated with. The flask is closed and then we wait.

>When cells were cultured in the presence of metformin in the above mentioned studies, the size of resulta

Suesa's Science Challenge #2: Radiation = Radioactive? 輻射就是等於放射性?
<h2>Suesa's Science Challenge #2: Radiation = Radioactive? 輻射就是等於放射性?</h2>

This post is in response to Suesa's Science Challenge #2 on science misconception, although it seems that I am not eligible to join as a participant. Previously, I had described that some interesting facts, properties and experiments on radioactive elements in the [1<sup>st</sub> Steemit science fair](https://steemit.com/sciencefair/@mcw/h2-steemstem-science-fair-entry-radioactive-detection-from-homemade-to-smartphone-app-steemstem-h2). Aside from chemistry, radioactive stuff is still one of my favorite and I would like to take this opportunity to discuss some common misconception about radiation and radioactive materials. 

最近 @suesa 提出了一個挑戰讓大家拿一些大衆對科學的一些誤解來討論一下。雖然我不能成爲參賽者,但這個題目讓我想起我跟家母的日常談話已經足夠變成個貼文。除了化學,放射性物質都是讓我感到興趣的東西。早前我在

The 16 Most Stunning Things to See in the Night Sky
https://steemitimages.com/DQmYM3eQH6EwRX3QbGyvPPXBLLMFCwdqAo6DR9vJRgdSQqr/Whirl.jpg

Generally, this account is aimed at educational value and intrigue. However, I've recently felt like doing something a bit different, instead today I would like to share with you my personal selections for the best objects one can view in the night sky. Note however, there may be a bit of hemisphere bias present here, as I live in the northern hemisphere and thus don't see many of the things that are out there.

Tier 4: Planetary objects.

4a. Venus

Venus is a truly astonishing sight when viewed just with your naked eye. Mostly because of just how dominant it is on the scale of brightness. Only eclipsed by the moon at night. It has an atmosphere of CO2 and is coated in reflective clouds, thus making it very bright by appearance, the brightest planet or any object outside of the sun and moon for that matter.

Distinguishing it from the other planets isn't hard once you've seen it. It bears a golden-tan coloration, and the lig

Science Misconceptions: Genetically Modified (GM) crops are Harmful to Humans
<html>
<p>As part of the Suesa Science Challenge, I will list three reasons why Genetically Modified Crops are safe for consumption. Better yet, I would argue that in some ways, they may be safer than conventionally bred crops. Here are the reasons why:&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>1. Humans have long engaged in the genetic modification of animals and foods.</strong></p>

The results, an eclectic mix of mutants (plants that carry random changes in an organisms

Fixed-Action-Patterns: The Heart And Soul of Survival Instincts
<p><div class="pull-right">

   <center><a href="http://www.cerebromente.org.br/n09/fastfacts/garras.jpg"><sub>source</sub></a></center></div></p>

<p>The entirety of the animal kingdom operates on instincts. Our DNA has hardwired those behaviours in order to aid our survival. This is why they are often referred to as "survival instincts". They are simply behaviours that aim towards the preservation and propagation of an organism through various mechanisms of natural selection such as the one of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_selection">group selection.</a></p>

<p>If we are to strip an instinct down to its basic constituents we would find a basic survival mechanism that has remained unaltered. This is what we call in biology a fixed-action-pattern. It is an innate behavior, almost like a reflex, that works much like a small computer program that once it starts going, almost always,

<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;The galaxy of Andromeda is also known as MESSIER 31, since it is the Messier catalog number object 31 of fuzzy objects in the sky. It is a super giant spiral of the type Sb with a luminosity that is, apparently, something greater than the one of our galaxy. It is turned towards us so that its main plane constitutes an angle of 15 degrees with the line of sight, that is, it is almost in profile. However, a 15-degree angle is not small enough so that the dusty matter near the main plane of this galaxy can manifest itself as a dark belt. Andromeda is 2.5 million light yea

How much labor and material needs for floor work?
<div class="pull-left">https://steemitimages.com/DQmQhHTydY78oSYeW7ejmFsbMxTj2CbEif4EYoKPC5YMTp4/IMG20170722134145%20copy.jpg</div> Greetings, how are you steemit friends? Wish you good health always. In the previous discussion we have calculated the needs of labor and materials on the work of mountain foundations, sloof reinforced concrete, brick walls, reinforced concrete floor plate and painting.

Our discussion today is the calculation of labor requirements and floor work materials, this flooring work includes backfill work, K-100 cast concrete, landfill sand and floor coating (ceramic size 40 x 40 cm).

At this early stage we should know in advance technical backfill work, landfill sand, K-100 cast concrete and floor coating.

a. Backfill work

Preparing Tissue Culture Media
As promised in my earlier post about [sterilizing tomato seed](https://steemit.com/homesteading/@iamblake/sterilizing-tomato-seed-for-in-vitro-germination-pictures-and-video) below I show how I prepare media for tissue culture purposes. In this case I am germinating tomato seed in an effort to end up with sterile plant material to work with in vitro. The media is called standard M&S mixtrophic mixture or MSO. M stands for Murashige and S stands for Skoog. A number behind the letters MS is used to indicate the sucrose concentration of the medium. For example, MS0 contains no sucrose and MS20 contains 20 g/l sucrose.

MSO was invented by plant scientists Toshio Murashige and Folke K. Skoog in 1962 during Murashige's search for a new plant growth regulator.

The Silver Spotted Skipper ( Epargyreus clarus)
<h1>Yellow Glowing Eyes</h1>
<center>![](http://gdurl.com/9YSA)</center>
***
I was first inspired to write this article a few weeks ago. I was out at about 9:00 pm doing some nighttime macro photography. As I combed through the mass of wisteria leaves along the fence line, I was startled by two large orange glowing eyes staring back at me. At first, all I could make out in the glare of the flashlight was a big brown head and those eyes. I couldn’t ***imagine*** what they might  belong to! Once my eyes adjusted, it became clear.


<h1>Big-Eyed Caterpillar</h1>
<center>![](http://gdurl.com/1T7R)</center>
***
It was a caterpillar! It had taken me a moment to see it because it blended in so well with the leaves it was munching on. At the time, I had no idea what kind it was, and those big orange eyes were doing their job. I was afraid that it may have had some [**urticating hairs**](https://www.waldwissen.net/technik/holzernte/arbeit/wsl_schmetterlingsraupen_brennhaare/index_EN) that I couldn’t see in the dar

Messier 33: Triangulum Galaxy
<html>
<p><img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ea/M33_-_Triangulum_Galaxy.jpg/1024px-M33_-_Triangulum_Galaxy.jpg" width="1024" height="652"/></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;<em>Triangulum Galaxy Messier 33. Image source: </em><a href="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ea/M33_-_Triangulum_Galaxy.jpg/1024px-M33_-_Triangulum_Galaxy.jpg"><em>[1]</em></a></p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;In the small northern <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triangulum">constellation of the Triangulum</a> is Messier 33, a splendid spiral galaxy. It is also known as the triangle galaxy, Messier 33 exceeds 50,000 light years in length, so it is located third in size in the Local Group of galaxies, after the galaxy of Andromeda (Messier 31) and ours, the Milky Way. &nbsp;</p>
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;This galaxy, Messier 33, takes its name from the constellation to which it belongs, Triangulum, and not from its form as mistakenly think those who are approaching this interesting object for the first time.&nbsp;</p>

Lead - The Chemistry
Many useful substances discovered by humans throughout history have proven a poisoned chalice - we've already looked at one such material, asbestos. 
Another handy metal whose practicality belies its danger is *lead*. 
Much like asbestos, lead was a silent assassin ubiquitous in civilised societies for millennia. Only in the last half-century have law-makers wised up to the threat of lead, which has subsequently fallen by the industrial wayside. 
<center>https://i.imgsafe.org/51/51c5e016fe.jpeg</center>


## Promising Properties
___

Lead is a lustrous metal easily extracted, in small quantities, from raw ores such as *cerussite*. So numerous are its useful properties that, were it not incredibly toxic, it would remain a cornerstone of modern industry. 
Malleability, resistance to corrosion, high density and insolubility made it an ideal candidate for water pipes, container linings and decorative paints.

Understanding Impulsive Decisions: A Scientific Approach
![time-is-money-1601980_1920.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmPw7pdAWE8jCZCWE67gvL4efrLbLWeYqtA6DGJAj2yczz/time-is-money-1601980_1920.jpg)

# Maladaptive Behavior and You
<hr>

Have you ever procrastinated an important task, overslept, or had a little too much to drink? Like you, everybody exhibits maladaptive behaviors. While this behavior usually doesn't seriously interfere with a person's everyday functioning, it can dramatically disrupt lives. For example, engagement in risky decision making and unhealthy substance abuse are maladaptive behaviors that are seriously harmful to a person's well-being.

Understanding this type of behavior is incredibly important for behavioral science. In fact, it's central to my own research! But how do we measure this behavior? [Some researchers](https://dx.doi.org/10.1016%2Fj.drugalcdep.2006.09.016) suggest measuring people's tendency to make impulsive choices by using a test called Delay Discounting.

Piqued #13: The Unexpected And Amazing Technical Complexity Of Fluorescent Light-bulbs
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5b/Leuchtstofflampen-chtaube050409.jpg

# Are you reading this indoors?

If so, there is a good chance you are currently being illuminated by a fluorescent light-bulb. If you're in an office building, then the bulbs are probably those long glass tubes sitting in fixtures hung alongside a dilapidated drop ceiling. If you're at home, the bulbs are more likely to be compact. I'm sitting under fluorescent light as I write this in the NYC subway.

 **Whichever fluorescent bulb you are exposed to, the light you see from those bulbs is a miracle recipe of engineering, chemistry and physics hiding in plain sight.**

A couple of months ago I mentioned fluorescent light-bulbs [in an unrelated post and said they deserved more time.]() Well, their time has come at last. Today we will learn how the fluorescent light-bulb works. First, we will do a brief recap on photons and the Electromagnetic Spectrum. Then we will take a trip through the **three** yes, **three different r

Prediction of the next pandemic influenza strain (not predicted by me) / 預測下一代大流行性流感毒株 (不是我預測的)
For Chinese version, please scroll down/ 中文版請見文末

Originally I didn’t want to write this post, but somehow I felt I use try to use Steemit to document this so that later if it ever came true, what I written here will be permanently market, and cannot be edited after 7 days.

So, many of you might know I am a microbiologist, and I usually focus my work on bacteria. Today under a special occasion, I was caught up in an influenza discussion between a few PIs (principle investigators of projects). And they were talking about the likelihood of the next pandemic strains that would likely affect Hong Kong. And one of the PIs strongly believed the next one to hit Hong Kong would be the H2 series.

Many of you here might not have the clear picture of what influenza is, it is a virus that can infect a wide range of mammals and birds. The influenza can be further classified in to strain A, B and C, majority of the outbreaks in human involves the influenza A. The virus strains are usually named as H __ N

Understanding Research - Peer Review
![Picture]( https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2017/07/22/11/09/social-media-2528410_960_720.jpg)

*”Give me **Peer Reviewed** papers and I will believe you!”*

What is so great about peer review?

Generally, peer review is supposed to guarantee published papers provide accurate information and make sure that the quality of the data presented is appropriate.

The review is usually done by one or more people who have a similar competence as the author.

There exist other forms of peer review than just the above mentioned scholarly peer review. Clinical peer reviews are a thing in the field of health care to ensure a doctor acted in a way that’s expected of them.

Peer reviews can be open, single blind or double blind and several other things. As you’ve probably guessed, the open one is where the identity of the author and the reviewers are known by all participants. A single blind review ensures anonymity of the reviewer which might add more honesty to the review. The double blind review keeps author and re

Epigenetics - Not Quite Transgenerational Yet
![](https://steemitimages.com/DQmTpBGPQtWeQASAthf8Mk3YV145ZRM8ou3E2szcP5SEziJ/image.png)
[Source](http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/epigenetics/inheritance/images/DirectExposure.jpg)

>Warning: Relatively Long, yet relatable Science Post

`An analogy, to begin with, is that genes are to epigenes what hardware is to software: We can overclock and tweak its use while running it but don't expect us to pimp it for a new rig. Not even if you change the name from software to epihardware`

Many know about the Siddhartha Mukherjee's fiasco in The New Yorker's article ["same but different"](https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/05/02/breakthroughs-in-epigenetics) in (May 2, 2016) about epigenetics. In case you don't, an award-winning cancer researcher did a piece on basic epigenetic science that some experts in the field consider [misleading and incomplete](https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2016/05/06/researchers-criticize-the-mukherjee-piece-on-epigenetics-part-2/) to say the least.

Major New 12 Year Study (US GOV Sponsored) Shows Pregnant Mothers' Fluoride Exposure Is Linked Directly To Lowered Intelligence (IQ) in Their Children.
***The [Fluoride Action Network](http://www.fluoridealert.org/) today reported on a newly published scientific study that was sponsored by the US National Institute of Health, which looked at the effects of fluoride exposure on unborn children and monitored them during their formative years to assess any effects that the fluoride may have had on their measurable IQ levels.***

https://ehp.niehs.nih.gov/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/EHP-Logo_blue.png

**The results mirrored the results of several other such studies out of China and England, which show that consistently, children who encounter exposure to fluoride - from whichever source, whether it be toothpaste, fluoridated water or elsewhere - statistically embody a lower IQ level than those children who do  not.**

This will not come as a surprise to those among us who have already done our due diligence research into the subject, since there is already a large body of work which exposes the neurotoxicity of fluoride and the damage it does to cellular biology.
