On the Quantum Computing Delusion

John Smith
The prospect of an up-coming quantum computer revolution is big news these days, with some technologists predicting that a scalable quantum computer is a mere 4 - 5 years away. It has even been claimed -by D-Wave cofounder Eric Ladizinsky- that this prospective revolution will be civilization's next big revolution. The truth is that quantum computers that are anything more than toys are, not merely difficult to engineer, but mathematically impossible, and based on a...

Harnessing Platform Cooperatives to Reconcile the Digital and Social Economies

& Iris Wuisman
Online Platform Enterprises such as Uber are now ubiquitous. How can these initiatives stemming from the digital economy be squared with aspirations for a European social economy?

Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Pressing Corporations to Comply with CSR Instruments

Many corporations have adopted voluntary corporate social responsibility (CSR) instruments, but the extent to which they have been implemented is questionable. What are shareholders and governments doing to ensure stricter compliance?

Scientists discover groundbreaking facts about human gut mesentery

Ashutosh Kumar
In a breakthrough study, a group of doctors and basic scientists from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi and Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Research, (JIPMER) Puducherry have laid the long held debate to rest by validating, in human cadavers, that mesentery is a single entity. This debate is continuing since hundreds of years but now (using a revised method of dissection developed by these scientists) they have produced hard evidence of...

Design, synthesis and biological evaluation of chrysin benzimidazole derivatives as potential anticancer agents

Zhe Wang, , , , Juan Liu, Liu Zou, , Xuan Cao, , , , Xing Zheng &
A series of chrysin benzimidazole derivatives were synthesised and evaluated for their anticancer activity in the search for potential anticancer agents. Among them, compound 18 displayed the most potent anti-proliferative activity against MFC cells with IC50 values of 25.72 ± 3.95 μM. The flow cytometry results displayed that compound 18 induced apoptosis of MFC cells in a dose-dependent manner and caused the cell cycle to be arrested in the G0/G1 phase. Furthermore, the preliminary anticancer...

Spatial and Temporal Variation in the Diets of Pacific Staghorn Sculpins Related to Hydrological Factors in a Glacially Influenced Estuary

Emily J. Whitney, Anne H. Beaudreau & Douglas H. Duncan
In southeastern Alaska, a large volume of freshwater flows into estuaries from thinning and retreating glaciers and from high rainfall in the surrounding coastal temperate rainforest. Freshwater runoff to the coast affects the physical and chemical properties of estuarine habitats and, in turn, the structure and dynamics of biological communities. This study quantified temporal and spatial variation in the diets of Pacific Staghorn Sculpins Leptocottus armatus as an important step toward understanding how climate-driven changes...

An axiomless derivation of the Theory of Everything

Alexandre Harvey-Tremblay
Plato recognized that most of the disagreement in philosophy is ultimately linked to the choice of axioms made by the parties involved. He believed that by grinding away at the assumptions made for any argument, one could recover a kind universal truth. He believed that this universal truth, comprised of whatever survives the grinding process, could ultimately be used to build a logical framework in a manner that is entirely irrefutable. This is the axiomless...

The Mouthesizer: A Facial Gesture Musical Interface

Michael Lyons, Michael Haehnel &
In this technical sketch we introduce a new interaction paradigm: using facial gestures and expressions to control musical sound. The mouthesizer, a prototype of this general concept, consists of a miniature head mounted camera which acquires video input from the region of the mouth, extracts the mouth shape using a simple computer vision algorithm, and converts shape parameters to MIDI commands to control a synthesizer or musical effects device.
