I really recommend watching the video in full, but since I know that some of you will hesitate to do this, here is a brief travel guide through the video (times in min): The Earth is a complex system (7:15), and it faces multiple pressures (3:46) that are driving it away from its current equilibrium state. Such complex systems have multiple states of equilibrium, and the transitions between them may be sudden (5:36-5:38). The human contributions are nicely symbolized at 4:02 and detailed between 4:35 and 4:55.
The American media circus has moved on, the drugstores are removing the “H1N1 Vaccinations Available Here” signs, and most people are engaged with other concerns. Like SARS, avian flu and hantavirus, swine flu is yesterday’s scare. But perhaps we’re acting too fast in relegating this very real concern into the hall of fame for epidemics that might have been.
Our bout with swine flu killed more than 12,000 people in the U.S. alone, and more than 25,000 worldwide. Seasonal flu typically causes 36,000 U.S. deaths annually, but what’s striking about H1N1 is that some 90% of its deaths occurred in people under 65.

A lot has changed since my last blog entry. Now a little more mature, and starting to find out where I fit in the vaste field of research areas and sicence careers. I guess I found myself in neuropsychopharmacology; specially in the study of stress, sleep and memory correlations. Found an amazing advisor and a mentor.
Soon I'll post more about my research interests!!!
My best regards to all

Listed here are links to some interesting bioresource servers and sites that offer interesting bioresources relevant to life science related enquiry. The number of web sites offering one or more free bioresources and biotools is increasing on a daily bases. Its important that life Scientist are aware of bioresources relevant to their chosen bioscience field.
You never can tell, you might just find out that an online resource that you've always wanted is already available for free in the internet.

I posted the following question over at tex.stackexchange but as a newbie there, I can only post one link, so I put a linked version here.
The movie15 package requires 3D files to be in u3d format for embedding into pdf. This works fine with the sample files provided, and I have no problem generating suitable 3D files, but so far, I have not found a way to convert them to u3d. MeshLab, usually the first place to go for such things, crashes during u3d export.

Scientists at the University of Arizona have achieved a breakthrough in the fight against malaria: a mosquito that can no longer give the disease to humans
For years, researchers worldwide have attempted to create genetically altered mosquitoes that cannot infect humans with malaria. Those efforts fell short because the mosquitoes still were capable of transmitting the disease-causing pathogen, only in lower numbers.
Now for the first time, University of Arizona entomologists have succeeded in genetically altering mosquitoes in a way that renders them completely immune to the parasite, a single-celled organism called Plasmodium. Someday researchers hope to replace wild mosquitoes with lab-bred populations unable to act as vectors, i.e. transmit the malaria-causing parasite.

CHICAGO --- Just as styles in sexy clothes or fashion change from year to year and culture to culture, "sexy" genes, or genes specific to sex, also change rapidly. But there is one sex-specific gene so vital, its function has remained unaltered throughout evolution and is found in almost all animals, according to new research from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
The gene, called Boule, is responsible for sperm production. Northwestern scientists also discovered in their research that Boule appears to be the only gene known to be exclusively required for sperm production from an insect to a mammal.
The Second Mathematical Chemistry Workshop of the Americas will be held during July 19-24, 2010, in Bogota, Colombia, at the campus of the Universidad de los Andes.
the focus of the conference will be the Mathematical Chemistry and in the relationship between chemistry, mathematical modelling, chemoinformatics, environmental toxicology, quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) and quantitative molecular similarity analysis (QMSA) modelling, bioinformatics (including genomics and proteomics), and other relevant fields.
This is a comment on We scare people off by talking about 'degrowth' in The Ecologist — copied here for self-archiving purposes, keeping in mind that all comments previously made to the Times were recently lost when they erected their new pay wall.
Nice take on a crucial problem: If resources are limited (and they are), so is growth - how do we communicate that?
A few issues, though:
