I peek into Facebook, and all my friends are on holiday, now that it August. This week they are all in southern Italy for the festival of folksinger Vinicio Capossela: which is something as Vinicio Capossela is, something hard to explain, it poetry, the world turned upside down: with no clock, a week long strike against the strict rythms of work, of profit, of efficiency: against all what is normal, and yet, normal not because it makes sense, actually, but only because we got used to it, and and we are here, instead. Including me.
Il cuore dello studio ruota attorno alla creazione di “aptameri”, molecole in grado di riconoscere le cellule tumorali distinguendole da quelle sane. Il lavoro che abbiamo recentemente pubblicato su Nature Communications spiega Porciani nasce dal frutto di una collaborazione tra il nostro gruppo di ricerca e un gruppo alla Scuola Medica dell’università del Missouri. I farmaci anti tumorali convenzionali non sono in grado di discriminare tra una cellula malata e una sana.
We still have a long way to reach our final destination of a network of sanctuaries covering 40% of our oceans. The formal outcome of the meetings last week now must be adopted by the UN General Assembly by September 2015 in order to move forward with negotiations for a legally binding agreement under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), which must be implemented over the coming years. Our voyage for Oceans Protection has begun and the growing strength of the Ocean Lovers movement will support us through the many battles that will lie ahead.
“[ ] an international nuclear physics conference was held in Copenhagen; on that occasion the type of accelerator to be built as the main goal of the new European organization was amply discussed. A report on the conclusions reached by the participants was presented by Heisenberg to the Council which held its Second Meeting in Copenhagen immediately after the Conference. Thus the decision was taken that the Proton Synchrotron Group should explore the possibility of constructing a 10 GeV proton synchrotron which, at that time, represented the biggest machine in the world.” (Amaldi, 20th Century Physics, Essays and Recollections).
