Have you heard about the young orca J50? Researchers are attempting an incredible feat to save this malnourished orca. I am hoping that these efforts will save this little whale, but there is a silver lining. This event is bringing to light an issue with wild orca populations, there is a lack of available food. Development, pollution, and marine traffic are all contributing to the decline of these spectacular animals in their natural habitat. #protectwhatyoulove

100 followers! 💯!! 😱Thank you! 👏👏👏 Our faces are right now very similar to the ones you can see in this cut of Ammophila (beach-grass🌾🏝)

But wait, what are those faces? Those smiley faces in the image are nothing more and nothing less than the vascular system of the plant. Plants have a vascular system composed of two main parts: xylem and phloem. The xylem system brings water and minerals upwards to the entire plant, while the phloem carries sugars and other compounds produced in the plant to the parts that need them. In this particular photo, this system is dyed blue.
Scientists can identify the genus or family of certain plants just by seeing these types of cuts in the microscope...

Like i said in my last post diet is an influential factor of your healthy Life but it depends on various other factors such as sources of strength and stress. It is always better to focus on your strength during your hard times and try to find an alternative solution of your stress origin.
Pattern of sleep and workout routine also have a bug influence in your day to day Life. Doctors usually does not ask these questions before giving you the final suggestions or medications.

#Repost from @sciencestuffwithsteph. I had the pleasure to speak with Prof. 
Ramesh Laungani! He is an Associate Professor of Biology at #DoaneUniversity in Crete, Nebraska. His scientific research focuses on the impacts of both climate change and climate change mitigation strategies in grasslands. Specifically, he and his students examine how adding a substance called #biochar to grassland soil can combat climate change by storing carbon for the long-term and how these biochar additions impact the structure and functioning of grassland plant communities. Additionally, he spearheaded a science communication project called the 1000 STEM Women Project (flipgrid.com/7bad90), which curates a library of 90-second scientist introduction videos for use in K-12 classrooms. The overall goal of the project is to diversify the view that students have of scientists and STEM careers.

It was a fun episode!

#facesofscience: Meet Cheryl McCutchan!

I’m a scientist turned science communicator. I illustrate, animate, and write science content for publishers, scientists and museums. I would never have predicted that this is where I would end up as a scientist or artist!
.
.
In college, I majored in Biochemistry & Environmental Science, and quickly found a job in a biotech start-up, but later realized that a career in industry was not my passion. As a happy coincidence, I was also volunteering with the Nature Conservancy at this time, collecting frogs and identifying & drawing native plants. This is where I found my true love in science at the intersection of ecology and biochemistry.
.
.
I pursued a PhD at the University of Colorado, where I studied the ecophysiology of plants. It took me a long time to finish my graduate degree, and there were many days when I contemplated quitting: when my research didn’t work, when I couldn’t figure out what I was going to do with a PhD, and when my advisor and I just didn’t understand one another. I continued drawing plants used in plant science courses and in my dissertation. I finished after 8 years (audible groan) and began a post doc working part-time with an excellent forest ecologist.
.
.
At this time, I had my first child - beautiful baby girl. I really tried to make research and being a mom work, but had no childcare, my husband was working full-time, and I couldn’t put in the hours needed to produce ~3 publications a year. I entered a phase that I had never experienced before - one in which I had no idea what to do as a career.
.
.
My epiphany came when I was reading a science article and mused to myself, ‘this sure would be better explained with an animation.’ That was the stroke of inspiration that I needed, and it became the focus of my new career as a freelance science illustrator and animator.
.
.
There were many frustrations along the way, but they resulted in a freelance business that I love. Never think that the winding path you’re on is a waste of time. Sometimes the things we love seem so disparate, and then, amazingly they combine in the most glorious way!

There are many ways to study cell migration. One of the assays, or experiments, that we do to measure this is called a “scratch assay” or “wound closure assay.” It requires a plate of cells and you literally ‘scratch’ down the middle using a piper to remove the cells. Over the next few hours, the cells migrate towards each other. Using different pharmacological treatments or genetic manipulations, you can study the effects on cell migration. This is particularly useful in contexts such as cancer metastasis and fetal development.

Feeling super anxious this morning 😖
.
I don’t get anxious very often anymore since I’ve learned to manage it better. But I decided to go to work a little later today because I have a late meeting. As soon as I made this decision my nerves went through the roof.
.
Changing my schedule won’t kill me but the uncertainty might 😂 And this is the exact reason why I need to try new things that make me uncomfortable. .
So in case you missed it —> check out my IG story to find out what new fun exciting project I’m working on that also has me anxious as all hell 😊

More #latergram from #discoverycamp! I came and did a #demonstration on #newtonslaws. Armed with only a rolling chair with three balloons tied to it, campers saw examples of each law and discussed how it applies to their everyday life.
✏️🔔🖍️🚓🤸‍♂️
Here are a few highlights of their #journalsplash when asked to draw an example of these laws. Can you guess what they illustrate? Bonus points if you can get the last one!

📢New Season Preview📢
The Haṭha Yoga Project (HYP) is a five-year (2015-2020) research project funded by the European Research Council and based at @soasuni , University of London which aims to chart the history of physical #yoga practice by means of philology, i.e. the study of texts on yoga, and #ethnography, i.e. fieldwork among practitioners of yoga. The project team consists of four researchers based at #SOAS and two at the École française d’Extrême Orient, Pondicherry.

The project’s primary outputs will be critical editions and annotated translations of ten #Sanskrit texts on #haṭha yoga, four monographs, and a range of journal articles, book chapters and encyclopedia entries. In September 2016 a workshop for twenty scholars working on critical editions of Sanskrit texts on yoga was held at SOAS and All Souls, Oxford. A public conference will be held at SOAS in 2020.

In our webcomic we follow the path of Dr James Mallinson, lecturer in Sanskrit and Classical Indian Studies at SOAS. When he was 17, Mallinson traveled across #India for several months and became fascinated with the lifestyle of the Indian #ascetics. Back to England he started studying Sanskrit. 25 years later he was honored with the title of mahant (religious superior) in recognition of his long association with the Rāmānandī Indian ascetic saṃpradāya. .
