One of the hallmark stages of mental development when we are children occurs around the ages of 3-4 where a child transitions from thinking that everyone is always thinks the same way they do, to realizing that everyone has their own set of mental processes, their own way of thinking, their own beliefs. It is at this stage that we shift from thinking that others are always telling the truth, to realizing that it is possible for others to hold false beliefs (IE not everything that everyone tells you is correct, some people believe things that are wrong). The ability to recognize these things is known as Theory of Mind.
Theory of mind plays a key role in allowing for the complex interactions that we have with one another and helps to facilitate things like cooperation, and define our sense of morality. One key aspect of theory of mind is the ability to understand whether or not someone else is h
심혈관계 질환의 위험성이 증가된 제2형 당뇨병 (T2DM, type 2 diabetes) 환자의 경우, GLP-1 agonist (glucagon-like peptide 1, 글루카곤 유사 펩타이드 작용제)는 DPP-4 inhibitors (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 억제제)보다 안전합니다.
GLP-1 agonist와 DPP-4 inhibitor는 모두 incretin(인크레틴)이라는 물질과 관련되어 있는 약입니다. 인크레틴은 췌장에서 인슐린 분비를 촉진 시키는 물질로, 그 종류에는 GLP-1 등이 있습니다. 따라서 인크레틴을 이용하여 당뇨 치료를 하는 방법에는 두 가지가 있는데, 우선 GLP-1을 직접 투여하는 방법으로 GLP-1 agonist를 투여하는 방법입니다, 그리고 간접적으로 우회하여 GLP-1의 농도를 증가시키는 방법으로 DPP-4 inhibitor을 투약하여, GLP-1을 분해하는 효소인 DPP-4를 억제시켜 GLP-1분해를 막아 그 농도를 올리는 것입니다.
GLP-1 agonist 의 대표적인 약물로는 exenatide (엑세나타이드)가 있으
Galaxies like our Milky Way are large groups of stars containing from a few million to about a trillion stars. Galaxies also group together in clusters of galaxies.
Milky Way Galaxy
On a clear dark moonless night escape the city lights and look up at the sky. If you see a faint fuzzy white band across the sky that almost looks like thin clouds, you are seeing the Milky Way, our home galaxy. The Milky Way is a collection of a few hundred billion stars that is over a hundred thousand light years in diameter.
The Milky Way is a spiral galaxy. The stars are concentrated in a flat disk shape that is a few thousand light years thick but still over 100,000 light years in diameter. This disk has a spiral arm structure. Two arms come out from the nucleus, or center, of the galaxy and wind around several times to produce the spiral arm structure. The disk and spiral arms contain mostly young (called Population I) stars like our Sun. They also contain various types of nebulae and galactic or open clusters.
For many years, opponents of cannabis legalization have fear-mongered that by embracing the freedom of people to choose what they put into their body (cannabis) that it will likely prompt further underage usage.
Colorado, Washington, and a number of other states have decided to embrace civil disobedience and allow their citizens to access cannabis for either recreational or medical reasons. From their move to allow the plant, we have seen that those states didn't descend into chaos like some anti-cannabis advocates had suspected would happen.
A recent survey in Washington also polled roughly 37,000 students who were in either middle or high school. The survey analyzed the rate of consump

After having been bombarded with information for a few decades regarding the things we should do, and not do, to avoid cancer, a new study now says that almost 66% of the genetic mutations that develop into cancers are caused by simple random errors which occur when the cells divide and multiply.
Which basically means that besides the other factors, like environmental and lifestyle factors (29%), inherited factors (5%), it now seems that a new factor is also equally responsible, chance!
So if you were worried about your lifestyle (which is the most blamed), don't, because it could have been chance, or in other words, just plain bad luck!

Charles and Ray Eames were a husband-wife design-duo who collaborated on a film project commissioned by IBM, titled
Powers of 10 :
“A film dealing with the relative size of things in the universe. And the effect of adding another zero.”
Powers of 10 merged science with creative representation. The Eames' film blended themes of time and scale in a way that had never been so provocatively captured. The exploration of place and the boom of environmentalism in the 1970s transformed the 20th century. Space photography in the 60s and 70s gave us a humbling perspective that we had never had before.
For the first time in human history, we became visually conscious of our scale and by our place in the greater scheme of the cosmos. To borrow from the great Carl Sagan;

In the early hours of Oct. 6, 2008, the astronomers who study objects in Earth’s neighbourhood in the solar system made a startling discovery: One of those objects was going to hit Earth. In 12 hours.
Alerts were sent out to asteroid hunters around the globe, and dozens of observatories turned their telescopes to spot the swiftly approaching threat. Researchers at NASA calculated the impact site — the Nubian Desert in northern Sudan — and dispatched a fleet of airplanes to watch it fall. Fragments scattered across the desert. A professor from the University of Khartoum brought his students to search for the pieces. The rocks turned out to be a rare type of meteorite called ureilite, and they showed that the meteorite contained amino acids — important molecules for life.
In a research, scientists found that the lungs not only facilitate respiration, but it also plays a crucial role in making new blood components. During experiments conducted on mice, scientists found that more than 10 million platelets were produced per hour which was equal to half of the total platelets produced in the animals’ circulation. From decades we know that the production of blood occurs only in bone marrow, but this new research surprised everyone.
Scientists at the University of California, San Francisco also found pool of blood stem cells, that were incorrectly assumed to be happen mainly in bone marrow, that make blood inside the lungs. According to Mark R. Looney, who involved in this research, says that the findings need more sophisti
Científicos estadounidenses preparan un riñón artificial, con filtros de silicio y células vivas, que podrá ser implantado a los enfermos renales liberándoles de la máquina de hemodiálisis. Funciona bajo el impulso del corazón del paciente.
La clave de este dispositivo es su microchip, en el que se utilizan los mismos procesos de la nanotecnología del silicio, que fueron desarrollados por la industria de la microelectrónica para los ordenadores y equipos informáticos”, según Fissell.
El riñón biónico, a punto de entrar en su fase de pruebas en humanos, combinará elementos electrónicos y orgánicos y tendrá un tamaño similar al de los órganos cuya función asumirá.
Supondrá una mejora enorme para la vida de aquellas personas que deben conectarse varias veces a la semana a un aparato externo de hemodiálisis porque sus riñones fallan.

The first of the DNA proofs came forth in 2005 by a Chinese scientific team led by Jin Li. He actually confessed that his mission was to debunk the supposed “Negro claims” but ended up in the opposite direction.
Below are some indicators that the first people in China were black:
black dwarfs. This also goes down well with the fact that the ancient kingdom builders in South-east were black people.

Cicada or Crickets (Gryllidae) is an insect that resembles a grasshopper, has a flat body and long antennae. Crickets are omnivorous, known for his voice which is produced only by male crickets. This sound is used to attract females and other males refused. The crickets voice getting louder with increasing ambient temperature. The world's known 900 species of crickets, including the digger.
In Aceh, small children often use these small insects for Laga.
Laga crickets is a kind of popular games and often involve betting.
Caraguatatuba, Brazil, black crickets in the room believed to be a sign of the disease, green crickets expectations, and crickets gray money. In comedy, the sound of crickets usually used to signify the jokes are not funny and make people laugh.

Alternating current behaves quite different from direct current and this seems to be giving false hope to many free-energy tinkerers. Let’s have a look at some of these differences.
The magic usually goes hand in hand with the usage of reactive components, of which there are two types; inductive and capacitive. To keep this post as simple as possible I will only discuss the latter, but similar effects can also be created with inductive components.
A capacitor can best be compared to a rechargeable battery; one that can be charged and discharged in very short intervals. If a capacitor is connected to an AC source, the voltage on the capacitor is constantly changing and in order to do so a current is flowing into the capacitor when the voltage is rising and out of the capacitor when the voltage decreases. Furthermore this current depends on the rate of change in the voltage. In other words, if the voltage changes rapidly
It has become a habit of the people of Aceh after the completion of activities to enjoy a cup of coffee in a coffee shop. This activity is used as a means of gathering with friends, while addressing the issues of who is hot or the most useful information. As I pass through the afternoon with friends while making the latest posts to steemit.
Talk about coffee certainly will not end, coffee is the beverage most consumed by humans other than tea. many people sip coffee in the morning to get the spirit in starting today. However, one study indicates that caffeine has more benefits for your memory
Here friends can read the effects of caffeine on human memory, which I quote from the source :
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University tried to look at the effects of caffeine on memory, to the exclusion of other impacts on the brain. As a result, caf
The first spacewalk will prepare the Pressurized Mating Adapter-3 (PMA-3) for installation of the second International Docking Adapter, which will accommodate commercial crew vehicle dockings. The PMA-3 provides the pressurized interface between the station modules and the docking adapter. Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough of NASA and Flight Engineer Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency) will disconnect cables and electrical connections on PMA-3 to prepare for its robotic move Thursday, March 30. PMA-3 will be moved from the port side of the Tranquility module to the space-facing side of the Harmony module, where it will become home for the docking adapter, which will be delivered on a future flight of a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft. The spacewalkers also will install on the starboard zero truss a new computer relay box equipped with advanced software for the adapter.
The two spacewalkers will lubricate the latching end effector on the
Who says meat doesn't grow on trees...?
Okay, well perhaps not on trees, but for those of us who have qualms over all the animals slaughtered to supply the delicious meat we so often take for granted, the day will soon be upon us when your hamburger, meatballs, and now, your chicken meat, may be grown in a lab instead, courtesy of Memphis Meats...
And in addition to these advancements, eventually even electronic parts for your smart phone (and who knows, maybe your whole car too?! or is that just called a horse?! I digress...) may be grown in a lab by means of modified DNA...

Any fan of The Simpsons remembers the time Homer accidentally came up with a delicious drink recipe, the “Flaming Homer,” only to have it stolen from him by Moe.
Here’s how to make that magical cocktail and other favorites from the series.As explained in this video from the Cocktail Chemistry YouTube channel, the “Flaming Homer” on the show is an oddball mix of tequila, peppermint schnapps, crème de menthe, a few other random liquors, and, of course, its trademark ingredient: grape cough syrup. As expected, this recipe tastes disgusting, and, unfortunately, the concoction won’t even light aflame. We’ll never know if fire actually makes it good.
So, to make a more drinkable “Flaming Homer,” Cocktail Chemis
