‘It opens up a whole new universe’: Revolutionary microscopy technique sees individual atoms for first time.  Cryo-electron microscopy breaks a key barrier that will allow the workings of proteins to be probed in unprecedented detail.

10.  The sounds of silence



9.  John Derbyshire has his say

There is really something different about these youngsters today.

The teacher is a fat feminist and about 50 percent of the lessons are about the importance of diversity, inclusion and equality. Only I seem to notice that there’s something odd in such a massive adoration of political slogans.

Not disagreeing in the least, much of what we seem opposed on is just a question of slant or angle – my angle encompasses all this but also points, hard, at the paucity of the soul of today’s people and that can be sheeted home squarely at those who do not value the spiritual side of Man.  When all problems are just Sientifik like, when people really believe Man can solve his own problems unaided, then what we see is what we see.

There are facets to the human – mental, physical, spiritual, social [you could add some other headings no doubt].  When any of those are neglected, then there is only one way – Chris Rea sang a song about it.

8.  Two minds

Call me pathetic, call me infirm of mind but I see this header above and strongly prefer a traditional ‘boaty’ boat – lots of lines, belaying pins, wooden blocks etc., a real deck to stand on instead of a sailing platform, nice decor below.

Practicality says cat, past sailing too, my heart says Boaty McBoatface. We have a day’s delay today due to supplies being delayed. Am going over total wood order and price, the mechanics of the build, we’ve started, sorting the existing timber just now.

    “Sources are telling Dan #Bongino that they are genuinely concerned that some upper level people in our military are openly talking about defying the President of the United States. “That’s got a name. That’s called a mutiny.”
