Quote:Can portabella mushrooms stop cell phone batteries from degrading over time?

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside Bourns College of Engineering think so.

They have created a new type of lithium-ion battery anode using portabella mushrooms, which are inexpensive, environmentally friendly and easy to produce. The current industry standard for rechargeable lithium-ion battery anodes is synthetic graphite, which comes with a high cost of manufacturing because it requires tedious purification and preparation processes that are also harmful to the environment.

I know that I get recharged when I sautée some of them to eat with that T-Bone steak that I get to eat about once every three months, because I'm trying to keep my cholesterol down, and not take statins, which tear me up.

Cool article. Nature has sorted out a lot of problems in terms of thermodynamic efficiency. We just need to figure it out and exploit it like the brainy apes that we are!

RE: The elegant nature of science
Someone mentions mushrooms and I magically appear! How does that happen? Consider

Video 1 is simply cool. The second video is a Ted talk that you may recognize as being used in the first video. This is a talk from 2008 by Brian cox about the Large Hadron Collider.

My favorite moments in these videos are 1) The quotes about the universe being composed of 12 particles and 4 forces of nature and 2) the Scientific Creation story that Brian Cox paints. It is beautiful elegant and simple. It nearly brings a tear to my eye when thinking about it.

I must admit to being very emotional at the elegant story that science can tell us about our universe and how we fit in it. I NEVER got this emotional when hearing the biblical story of creation nor the biblical explanations of life, but the beauty of science leaves me in tears.
12 particles and 4 forces. Caught my eye. Could anyone please give reference to reading material pertaining to these things. Thank you in advance.

Any search on the standard model in particle physics or quantum mechanics will give you what you are looking for

My ignorance is quite high on his particular topic. What is a good factual base reference that I could read in order to gain a base working knowledge of this topic. Thanks again

Surely some peaceful intelligent thinking atheist will help in my understanding without being a douche.

You're not the boss of me. Tongue

Now back on point:

Quote:Kumu’s founders developed hardware and software that enables a radio’s receiver to filter out interference from outgoing signals. The device can then transmit and receive at the same time—what Kumu calls a “full duplex” connection—doubling the effective capacity of a single radio channel or making it possible to use one where two were needed before (see “The Clever Circuit That Doubles Bandwidth”).
