new type of antenna that makes use of plasma consisting of only electrons. It could revolutionise
speed wireless communications, miniature radar and even energy weapons.
World Community Grid is making technology available only to public and not
to use in humanitarian research that might otherwise not be completed due to the high cost of the
computer infrastructure required in the absence
of a public grid. As part of our commitment to
advancing human welfare, all results will be in the public domain and made public to the global
The Ibis T5000™ Biosensor System interrogates common sequences among classes of organisms for
diagnostic use. Despite the enormous class diversity of organisms, Ibis scientists have carefully
selected and curated genetic sequences t
hat allow this interrogation to produce powerful results for
surveillance, epidemiology, forensic, and biological research.
For example, bacteria have highly conserved sequences in a number of genomic locations, including
the universally conserved regions
of ribosomal and other non
coding RNAs and essential protein
encoding genes. These conserved sequences can serve as priming sites for sequence amplification in
PCR tests. When the regions between these conserved PCR primer
binding sites contain sequences

be used as identification markers.
Mass spectrometry rapidly determines the precise weights of the nucleic acids present and the A, C,
T, and G content (i.e.
, base composition) of each amplicon. The base compositions of the PCR
products are used to help identify the organisms present.
In addition to broad
range organism identification, the Ibis T5000 Biosensor System can be used with
specific assay kits from I

Each "lens" is actually a set of two lenses, one flexible and one firm. The flexible lens (near the eye)
has a transparent distensible me
mbrane attached to a clear rigid surface. The pocket between them
holds a small quantity of crystal clear fluid. As you move the slider on the bridge, it pushes the fluid
and alters the shape of the flexible lens. Changing the shape changes the correction.
This mimics the
way the lenses in your eyes used to perform when you were younger.
This allows you to choose the exact correction that works best for you at any distance and under any
lighting conditions. The result: clear, undistorted vision over a wide
field of view: no zones, no lines.
The NOMAD® Pro joins the family of award
NOMAD handheld dental X
the most advanced systems on the market today. The NOMAD Pro offers an enhanced user
interface, preset and programmable exposure settings, and additional time
saving features. Its
lighter weight and cordless design imp
roves dental radiography speed, convenience, and efficiency.
One NOMAD Pro does the work of multiple conventional X
ray systems, making it extremely
economical. The leading technology of NOMAD Pro provides the highest level of safety, quality, and
care for your dental practice.
Pivot is an experimental technology that allows people to visua
lize data and then sort, organize and
categorize it dynamically. The result is that correlations, exceptions and trends become immediately
apparent in ways they can’t when information is stuck in rows and columns.
The program is designed to provide a much
more natural way for humans to digest large palettes of
information without losing their way
