(via @tech) Just recently, lawmakers decided that students under the age of 15 must leave their cellphones at home, or at least have them turned off during the entire school day. (For high schools, they will be allowed themselves to decide whether they implement the ban in their classrooms.) The measure prohibits the use of tablets, computers, and other internet-connected devices as well. This past December, the French government announced the ban as an attempt to send a “public health message,” as officials believed kids shouldn’t be spending as much time as they do on their devices.

(via @facts) In 1955, as many as 20,000 children a year were being permanently paralyzed by polio. When Salk made his breaktrough discovery (which all but eradicated the disease), he treated the innovation as his gift to humanity. When asked who owns the patent he remarked, "Well the people, I would say. There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?" This decision not to keep the patent for himself meant Salk gave up the ability to make as much as $7 billion. Do you think large pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to the world?

(via @tech) Axiom Space, which bills itself as the first commercial space station, said that it will offer seven to 10-day vacations on the International Space Station at a cost of $55 million...per person. Axiom, led by NASA's former ISS Program Manager Michael Suffredini, hasn't provided specific details yet but will more than likely rely on the likes of SpaceX and Boeing to ferry vacationers beyond the stratosphere. The current floor plan of the facility includes crew quarters, a dining area and a galley. The company will also give tourists a 15-week training course before their flight. According to Axiom's website, since the ISS is scheduled to retire in 2024, the company plans to separate its habitation area from ISS and establish its own station which you can visit, agan for $55 MILLION DOLLARS PER PERSON. tech space vacations: A COMPANY IS OFFERING VACATIONS ON THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION AS EARLY AS 2020...FOR A PRICE. @TECH l by guff (via @tech) Axiom Space, which bills itself as the first commercial space station, said that it will offer seven to 10-day vacations on the International Space Station at a cost of $55 million...per person.

(follow @tech for more!) The latest advance in a growing field of sensors that can be swallowed are capsules that could eventually be used in people to find signs of ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, or even colon cancer. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology tested capsules an inch long (they would be made smaller for humans) in pigs and correctly detected signs of internal bleeding. Though testing on humans is years off, shrinking the capsule to a normal pill size could be achieved by combining its three electronic chips. But the capsules could be customized to diagnose multiple conditions and help doctors monitor tricky-to-reach parts of the small intestine for people with Crohn's disease. Researcher Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia commented, "The work is yet another step toward showing the great promises of smart, ingestible capsules." tech technews health healthtech: HEALTH @TECH SCIENTISTS HAVE DEVELOPED A CAPSULE PACKED WITH TINY ELECTRONICS THAT YOU SWALLOW TO SPOT HEALTH PROBLEMS FROM THE INSIDE. guff (follow @tech for more!)

Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. 👩‍🔬 In the spirit of today, @Science wanted to honor Vera Rubin, an amazing American astronomer! How’s that for alliteration? She was born in Philadelphia and grew up with an interest in astronomy. Rubin eventually earned her BA in astronomy from Vassar College and tried to enroll in the graduate astronomy program at Princeton, but they refused to send her a catalogue because women weren’t allowed in the graduate astronomy program...until 1975. Let’s let that sink in for a second. She ended up studying at Cornell University, learning quantum physics from Richard Feynman and quantum mechanics under Hans Bethe. While studying the Andromeda Galaxy with fellow astronomer Kent Ford, Rubin noticed that objects on the outer parts of the galaxy were spinning at the same speed as those on the inside, which was antithetical to the belief objects at the center of a galaxy move faster than those on the outskirts. It turns out that she discovered the existence of the unseeable stuff that affects the movement of galaxies! . .

magic-retina: siphersaysstuff: megabeeprime: snyderman37: anxiousartisan: paladinpup: kramergate: just because it “fits” doesnt mean its comfortable or sustainable stopppppppp this shit There are two main factors at play when someone says that a condom is too small: (1) the band size is too small (2) the condom is not sustainable The band is at the base of the condom. It’s latex is made thicker here than the shaft and is, therefore, less elastic. The band keeps the condom secure so it does not come off mid-insertion and so penial fluids do not leak from the condom. To do this, the band has to keep a very tight grip on the base of the penis. This is the main complaint from people using condoms too small for them. The shaft’s plastic can stretch comfortably, but the band is not so lenient and uncomfortably or painfully squeezes the base of the penis. Condoms in use experience a lot of friction. For a condom’s shaft or band to be stretched farther than it was intended weakens the latex. The band and shaft are then at risk of being broken from the friction. It fitting does not mean it is sustainable. If your partner says a condom is too small, believe them and cease from doing anything that requires a condom. If your partner says a condom is too small but is trying to pressure you into unprotected sex, kick them out the door.  Thaaaank you please read the above they make large and XXL condoms for a reason and it’s not to stoke men’s egos A former… friend suggested I try a size or two larger, and yes, they do work. Yep. At first, I thought that condoms were supposed to be that tight. I’d seen those “condoms can fit on a two liter bottle so quit your complaining,” I had no basis for comparison because dudes don’t talk about that shit, and no one wants to be that “HURR HURR GUESS I NEED A MAGNUM XL” guy. Now wear that condom on your arm for a while. Ten minutes at least. Still got sensation in your arm? One of the many failures of sex ed in this country is the notion that there’s only two types of condom, “fits everyone except those elephant-trunk-cock freaks” and “for elephant-trunk-cock freaks or lying braggarts” (and yes, there’s implicit shame in the idea of people needing non-”regular”-sized condoms and the genesis for such is pretty likely rooted in some really nasty viewpoints about certain groups of people but I’m digressing). But penises come in a LOT of dimensions, and not all of them fit right in a “normal” condom. You don’t need to have a monster down there for a condom to be legitimately painful and/or break mid-act. This can leave a lot of people legitimately unawares that it doesn’t have to be like this. (I was, early on.) Condom too tight? That’s a real problem for the reasons pointed out above. But it’s a solvable one at most drug stores, which generally have a broader (ha ha) selection than your Walmarts or Targets. Or suck it up (ha ha) and go to an “adult boutique” (a proper one) where they’re likely to have even more options and let’s be real here the people working at these aren’t gonna give you Looks over condom selection. Or shop at said boutiques online if you REALLY need to avoid the in-person thing. And if you think you’re gonna be doing things requiring condoms, HAVE YOUR OWN. Yes, even if you personally don’t have a penis. Buy a box of large-size as well just in case. And don’t let anyone give you guff over it, and don’t let anyone pressure you into unprotected sex because of condom size. For the record, even if you’re doing things that don’t involve a penis at all, condoms are good to have around. They make great dental dams on the fly, keep toys clean, and keep body parts clean if your partner is using their hands. :) Also, keep some non-latex ones around in case you or your partner has a latex allergy. Trust me, there are few places worse to have that allergic reaction. o_o : Mousie If a boy ever tells you he's too big for a condom, please send him this magic-retina: siphersaysstuff: megabeeprime: snyderman37: anxiousartisan: paladinpup: kramergate: just because it “fits” doesnt mean its comfortable or sustainable stopppppppp this shit There are two main factors at play when someone says that a condom is too small: (1) the band size is too small (2) the condom is not sustainable The band is at the base of the condom.

This alien-like creature is actually a polychaete worm found west of the Karin Ridge in the Pacific Ocean. The protrusions you see along the length of the animal are paired, lateral outgrowths called parapodia. These structures have many bristles, called chaetae, made of chitin (a long-chain polymer of N-acetylglucosamine that may be loosely compared to, in terms of function, the protein keratin). Chaetae come in a wide variety of forms and are often species-specific, making them useful tools in the identification and classification of polychaetes. Chaetal function differs greatly among species, but the structures have been found to be important in areas like locomotion, anchoring, stabilization, and sensation (Merz & Woodin, 2006). The importance of chaetae has led some to refer to polychaetes as “bristle worms.” Tag a marine biology fan!
