Archer Fish Amplifies Muscle with Physics

first_img(Visited 36 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 The secret of the archer fish’s powerful spits has been discovered, and it isn’t powerful muscles.The fish that shoots bugs out of the air uses physics, a paper in PLoS ONE declared.  By letting physics amplify the momentum in the drop shot out of the water, the fish achieves six times the wallop its own muscles can attain.  Nature News posted a video of the fish and described how it works:The researchers found that the first section of the water to leave the fish’s mouth was traveling about two meters per second. But as the fish continued to expel water into the jet, the speed increased. This back-end power forced more water and momentum into the “head” of the jet. “As a result, the power that the head of the jet can deliver upon impact increases during shooting,” the authors explained in their paper.Vailati and team found that this is similar to a mechanism used by on-demand inkjet printers.  In a strange symbiosis of biomimetics, printer engineers may be able to improve their designs by studying how the fish accomplishes what they came up with independently.Nature News also quoted the authors’ evolutionary inclinations from their paper:The fish’s strategy is evolutionarily clever. “This advantage would come without the evolutionary cost for the development of highly specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy,” the authors noted.See also PhysOrg and BBC News.   Source: Vailati A, Zinnato L, Cerbino R (2012) How Archer Fish Achieve a Powerful Impact: Hydrodynamic Instability of a Pulsed Jet in Toxotes jaculatrix. PLoS ONE 7(10): e47867. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0047867.Evolution is not clever.  Evolution does not calculate the cost of development.  Evolution does not design specialized internal structures dedicated to the storing of mechanical energy.  Once again, we see evolution tacked on to a design story like some kind of vestigial organ from the 1800’s.The archer fish was one of the illustrations of design used by early films from Moody Institute of Science.  It remains a good illustration today, in fact, even more so.   There’s much more than muscle involved.  The fish has to correct for distortion at the air-water interface, have a perfect aim, calculate the height, and know the energy required to get the bug to release its strong grip on the twig.  All these things must work together for the fish to eat.  How many archer fish had to die before the right mutations came along?  Get real; get intelligent design.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Algae blooms in the Gulf of Mexico use up the majority of the oxygen in the water, leading to massive “dead zones” that cannot support fish or other wildlife. The culprit? Nitrate, running off agricultural fields through tile drainage systems. But nitrate is only part of the problem. Algae in freshwater lakes and ponds flourishes when exposed to a different pollutant, phosphorus, and the tiniest amount is enough to trigger a bloom.Illinois and the 11 other states that send the majority of the water to the Mississippi River set aggressive goals to reduce nitrate and phosphorus pollution in the Gulf of Mexico. To achieve those goals, large point sources of phosphorus, such as wastewater treatment plants, will need to invest in new infrastructure. But new research suggests there could be a role for farmers, as well.Laura Christianson, assistant professor of water quality in the Department of Crop Sciences at the University of Illinois, is an expert in woodchip bioreactors. She has done extensive work to demonstrate the potential of the woodchip-filled trenches in removing nitrate from tile drainage water in croplands.“The woodchips and the nitrate are necessary for the bacteria to complete their life cycles. As they consume the nitrate, it is removed from the water. It’s a biological process,” Christianson said.In a recent study, Christianson and several colleagues looked at whether they could also remove phosphorus by adding a special “P-filter” designed to trap the fertilizer-derived pollutant. The team tested two types of industrial waste products in the P-filters: acid mine drainage treatment residual (MDR) and steel slag. Phosphorous binds to elements such as iron, calcium, and aluminum contained in these products, removing it from the water.Rather than mixing MDR or steel slag with woodchips in one big nitrate- and phosphorus-removing machine, the team placed a separate P-filter upstream or downstream of a lab-scale bioreactor. They ran wastewater from an aquaculture tank through the system and measured the amount of nitrate and phosphorus at various points along the way.Nitrate removal was consistent, regardless of P-filter type and whether the P-filter was upstream or downstream of the bioreactor. But MDR was far superior as a phosphorus filter.“It removed 80 to 90% of the phosphorus at our medium flow rate,” Christianson said. “That was really, really good. Amazing.”Steel slag, on the other hand, only removed about 25 percent of the phosphorus. “But steel slag is a lot easier to find in the Midwest. And according to the Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy, we’re only trying to remove 45% of the phosphorus we send downstream. Since agriculture is only responsible for half of that, 25% would be pretty good,” Christianson said.The system clearly shows potential, but several unknowns remain. Paired bioreactors and P-filters have yet to be tested in real-world conditions, although a handful have been installed in the United States. Perhaps more importantly, researchers don’t have a good handle on how much phosphorus is running off agricultural fields in tile drainage.last_img read more

first_imgMaharashtra Leader of Opposition Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil will meet the Karnataka Home Minister G. Parameshwara in Bengaluru on Friday and seek his cooperation in raising the demand to ban right wing Sanatan Sanstha, whose name has surfaced in the murder cases of rationalists and journalist in Maharashtra and Karnataka. “I will be meeting the Home Minister with a request to exchange more information regarding Sanatan Sanstha and other right wing outfits. Karnataka investigative agencies have done a remarkable job in tracking down the killers of Gauri Lankesh and have helped Maharashtra police as well. We will explore possibilities of pushing the demand of ban on this organisation,” said Mr Vikhe-Patil. Based on information received from the arrested accused in journalist Gauri Lankesh murder case, Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) arrested one Vaibhav Raut of Hindu Goraksha Samiti from Nallasopara and two others. These arrests led to Sachin Andure, the alleged shooter in the 2013 murder of rationalist Dr. Narendra Dabholkar in Pune. In wake of these arrests, Maharashtra’s Minister for State (Home) said a proposal to ban Sanatan Sanstha has been sent to the union government. Mr. Vikhe-Patil has already demanded inquiry into Sanatan Sanstha founder Jayant Athawale as the organisation’s name has been mentioned by investigative agencies.last_img read more

Massachusetts authorities are expected to execute an arrest warrant for New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez  for obstruction of justice in connection with a homicide investigation, sources tell ABC News.The warrant was prepared after police discovered that the security system at Hernandez’s home, along with his cellphone, were destroyed, sources told ABC News.Police were at Hernandez’s home again Thursday with another search warrant based on evidence that Hernandez “destroyed his home security system,” an investigator close to the case told ABC News.The investigator and other law enforcement sources confirmed the security system was smashed intentionally. Hernandez’s cellphone was handed over to investigators “in pieces” by his attorneys, sources added.Police also want to know why a team of house cleaners was hired on Monday to scrub Hernandez’s mansion, sources told ABC News.“There’s a federal statute in every state that you cannot knowingly destroy evidence. And what [authorities] believe has happened here is that the home surveillance system was destroyed, the cell phone was destroyed, the house was cleaned, and the police think there was evidence that was destroyed because of that,” ESPN legal analyst Roger Cossack said.“Now the problem of course is that nobody knows what was in that home surveillance so in some ways it’s difficult for the police to make their case,” Cossack said.Surveillance video from the North Attleborough, Mass., neighborhood of Hernandez shows him with Odin Lloyd and two other people hours before Lloyd was killed earlier this week, sources confirmed to ABC News late Thursday.In addition, the Boston Globe reported that video images appear to show Hernandez and Lloyd together on Fayston Street in Boston early Monday morning.Hernandez, 23, has been at the center of the investigation since the body of Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-pro football player, was found shot in the back of the head Monday in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough.Lloyd’s uncle, Ishmael Andrew, told The Associated Press on Friday that Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez’s girlfriend. Family members have said Lloyd was never in trouble.Meanwhile, a lawsuit has been re-filed in Florida against Hernandez by a man the tight end allegedly shot in South Florida in February. The lawsuit contends Alexander S. Bradley was shot in the arm but the bullet traveled to his head, causing him to lose his right eye.Video footage by a WCVB-TV chopper showed Hernandez traveling by car to Gillette Stadium on Thursday morning. He left the stadium shortly after noon, then was swarmed by reporters after he stopped at a gas station.The Boston Herald reported that Hernandez was told to leave the stadium by staff, who were waiting for him when he showed up for a workout. Patriots spokesman Stacey James told the newspaper that he had no idea why Hernandez came to the stadium.“No coaches are here,” said James, who declined further comment to the Herald.Lloyd’s body was discovered in a clearing near John Dietsch Boulevard, not far from a vehicle that had been rented by Hernandez. Police have ruled Lloyd’s death a homicide.“It has been widely reported in the media that the state police have searched the home of our client, Aaron Hernandez, as part of an ongoing investigation. Out of respect for that process, neither we nor Aaron will have any comment about the substance of that investigation until it has come to a conclusion,” attorney Michael Fee said in a statement.Police are asking for the public’s help in locating a silver mirror cover believed to have been broken off a vehicle and might be visible along a route of travel between Dorchester, where Lloyd was from, and North Attleborough.The NFL is not commenting on the Hernandez situation at this point, a league official told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. But the NFL is monitoring developments, as it would in any matter of this nature.Bradley, the man who claims he was shot by Hernandez after the two argued upon leaving a Miami nightclub in February, is represented by New York attorney David Jaroslawicz.Asked whether he has a police report of the incident, Jaroslawicz declined to provide information. According to USA Today Sports, his client was in the hospital for weeks, and “I’m sure the police were there.”A spokesman for Miami-Dade police told USA Today that he was checking to see whether a report was filed.A police report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff describes a shooting incident involving a man named Bradley on Feb. 13. The sheriff’s office deemed the case inactive because Bradley refused to cooperate. Hernandez was not named in the report. read more

New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez says that he has come to an agreement on a “tentative” plan for him to make a comeback to the team.On Friday night, in Rodriguez’s last Double-A rehab game with Trenton, he went 1-for-2 with a home run against the Reading Fightin Phils.He will reportedly play one more game Saturday for Trenton and then return to the Yankees in Chicago on Monday, for their game against the White Sox.“I think it’s possible,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.Rodriguez said his return to the major league team is definite, barring an act of God.“Unless I get hit by lightning, and these days you never know,” he said.Rodriguez has missed the entire major league baseball season so far, due to a hip surgery and a Grade 1 quad strain.

Andrew Hoyle/CNET The Ferrari 812 Superfast is one hell of a car. I mean, it’s called the freaking Superfast. The one thing that it’s missing, though, is the ability to hear that absolutely bananas V12 yowl without having the sound muffled by a roof — that is to say, it’s missing a Spider version.Though, that may not be the case for long. According to the website FerrariChat, several Ferrari owners have received invitations to see the unveiling of the new model in early September at one of two events. According to a separate report by Motor1 published on Wednesday, all of these invites have gone to European owners, so either there will be a separate series of events for US buyers, or we won’t get this thing stateside, though the latter seems unlikely.As far as official details on potential specs for a Spider-ized version of the 812 go, there basically aren’t any. Seriously, we’ve heard nothing from the folks in Maranello on this one. If we were to put on our thinking caps and hazard an educated guess, we’d expect to see a folding hardtop roof like the Portofino and/or 488 Spider have. We’d be shocked to see any kind of change in power output, given just how potent the standard 812 is already, thanks to its 6.5-liter V12 engine.In any case, we can’t be bothered with the idea of a convertible 812 because the Ferrari Monza SP1 and SP2 already exist and those are — as far as we’re concerned — the coolest Ferraris to roll out of Maranello in decades.Oh, and we’re journalists, so we don’t have Ferrari 812 Superfast Spider money anyway. That’s the other reason we can’t be bothered.
