When you open up and look into a computer, you see all these green boards with tiny components on them. Of course, these make that your computer can do all kinds of amazing things, like, displaying a movie on a screen. But how are these made?! In this workshop you will learn! Have you ever ...

Abstract: Low-order streams form the most abundant and the largest component of fluvial networks. They transport and process particulate and dissolved substances of terrestrial or anthropogenic origin. For example, they can be strong sources of the atmospheric greenhouse gases CO2, CH4 and N2O, or they convert anthropogenic nitrate loads into N2. The type and magnitude ...

Conférence organisée par le Collège des Humanités (CDH), Archizoom et l'école doctorale EDAR. En collaboration avec la Section romande de la Société Suisse-Chine (SRSSC). Alternative modernity suspends the domination of megacities, goes back deep into the Chinese rural areas where the first traces of home-grown modernity originated, and tries to explore the scenarios of modernity ...

15th NCCR MARVEL Distinguished Lecture Several physical observables of materials have their theoretical root in geometrical properties of the electronic ground state. To start with, I will outline the modern theory of the insulating state, which addresses all kinds of insulators (band, Mott, Anderson...), discriminating them from metals by means of a very simple geometrical ...

Remodelling a motor on the go: Dynamic exchange in the bacterial flagellar motor and Type 3 secretion system and possible roles in motor function
The bacterial flagellar motor is the most complex rotary motor identified in biology. A central transmembrane rotor spins at up to 1300Hz against a ring of ion translocating stators attached to the cell wall, rotating an external helical flagellum to push the bacterium forward. The evolutionally related T3SS used the equivalent of the rotor to ...

Abstract: Archaea are microorganisms that emerged on this planet roughly 3.5 billion years ago as one of two primary lineages of life beside Bacteria. They are often associated with extreme environments, because most of the described organisms stem from hot springs or hypersaline environments. However, two functional guilds of archaea are ecologically widespread and have ... Read more about "EESS talk on "The role of Archaea in Biogeochemical Cycles""
