19:30 Phys.orgGold glue really does bond nanocages 'contradicting' logic

It has long been known that gold can be used to do things that philosophers have never even dreamed of. The Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow has confirmed the existence of 'gold glue': bonds involving gold atoms, capable of permanently bonding protein rings. Skilfully used by an international team of scientists, the bonds have made it possible to construct molecular nanocages with a structure so far unparalleled in nature or even in mathematics.

18:45 Phys.orgSpinning towards robust microwave generation on the nano scale

Spin-torque oscillators (STOs) are nanoscale devices that generate microwaves using changes in magnetic field direction, but those produced by any individual device are too weak for practical applications. Physicists have attempted—and, to date, consistently failed—to produce reliable microwave fields by coupling large ensembles. Michael Zaks from Humboldt University of Berlin and Arkady Pikovsky from the University of Potsdam in Germany have now shown why connecting these devices in series cannot succeed, and, at the same time, suggested other paths to explore. Their work was recently published in The European Physical Journal B.

We compare: (a) a 3D exocentric globe, where the user's viewpoint is outside the globe; (b) a flat map (rendered to a plane in VR); (c) an egocentric 3D globe, with the viewpoint inside the globe; and (d) a curved map, created by projecting the map onto a section of a sphere which curves around the user. In all four visualisations the geographic centre can be smoothly adjusted with a standard handheld VR controller and the user, through a head-tracked headset, can physically move around the visualisation. For distance comparison, exocentric globe is more accurate than egocentric globe and flat map. For area comparison, more time is required with exocentric and egocentric globes than with flat and curved maps. For direction estimation, the exocentric globe is more accurate and faster than the other

Washington state endured a band of early morning thunderstorms near the Colville Indian Reservation west of Spokane on August 02, 2019. The result of those storms were various lightning strikes and one of which caused the outbreak of the Williams Flats Fire. The 10,438 acre fire is burning south of Silver Creek Road, within the Colville Indian Reservation and is currently 20% contained. Firefighting efforts are being hampered by steep terrain, limited access and primitive road conditions near the fire. High pressure over the fire area is producing above normal temps and low humidity. Poor humidity recovery, in combination with the daytime wind pattern, resulted in fairly active fire behavior for the night shift. There are large amounts of fuel available to the fire that continue to feed the flames including short grass, timber and tall brush.
