To achieve this vision, the CBD set out 20 so-called Aichi Targets to be met by 2020. Yet, in 2020 biodiversity is still significantly declining […]

Promoting Material Properties of Magnesium Alloys using Equal Channel Angular Press

  The Problem with Magnesium alloys The fact that Mg alloys have lower mechanical strength and corrosion resistance due to a low number of slip systems and a higher corrosion tendency respectively are some of the technical challenges. The key to improving the performance of magnesium alloys is refining the grain size and distributing secondary phases by using thermo-mechanical processing. […]

Ice nucleation on particles in atmosphere and soil

  In the works of Fukuta and Schaller (1982) and Wex et al. (2014) the study of ice nucleation on aerosol particles is presented. According to Fukuta and Schaller (1982) there “are presently three mechanisms of heterogeneous ice nucleation known by aerosol particles – deposition, condensation-freezing including immersion freezing, and contact freezing”. There is an attempt in Fukuta and Schaller […]

Calculating ancient temperatures using oxygen

  What are isotopes? The term isotope was coined by English radiochemist Fredrick Soddy (1913) to distinguish chemical elements with different atomical mass, different numbers of neutrons, but which occupy the same position of the periodic table, i.e. have the same numbers of protons and electrons. The term isotope is derived from iso meaning equal and the Greek topos meaning […]

What can ecstasy (the common party drug) tell us about hydration physiology and metabolic health?

  The role of drinking water and keeping well hydrated to improve our health is a hotly cited media favourite. However, while we have ample knowledge on the extreme effects of hyperhydration (‘over-hydration’) and hypohydration (the state of lower total body water, commonly called ‘dehydration’), we know surprisingly little about how daily fluctuations in body water balance impact our health […]

Contributions of Blumenberguian Philosophy to the Debate on Current Society

 The anthropogenic understanding of boredom from Blumenberg’s philosophy (Ros Velasco 2017a; 2018; 2019) leads us to think about conflicts as natural phenomena that have characterised and shaped human beings since ancient times (Ros Velasco 2013). According to his view, boredom was an emotion selected in our ancestors because of its capacity to promote motion, creating a positive and beneficial conflict […]
