On Earth

When light passes along the nanotubes increases its refraction, as a result almost all the light entering the eye reaches the nerve endings. Indeed, modern solar panels have a very significant disadvantage – most of the energy is dissipated, which makes them the use of economically profitable. Based on these studies, scientists had created the material, acting on the principle of an eye butterfly. Properties of this material do not depend on the composition and the structure. For even more analysis, hear from Jorge Perez. It is composed of nanofibers variable length, which cause different optical properties at different sites. This material, unlike conventional materials used in the manufacture of solar cells, reflecting less light.

Rough development of plants in the past led to new kinds of insects, animals and American scientists from the University of Florida conducted a study that analyzed dna from 117 species of plants, and concluded that 90 million years back on Earth occurred boom of new plants. Previously, our planet looked like a modern rainforest. On Earth, it was everything except a person: coniferous forests, sharks in the oceans, huge dinosaurs and reptiles. Later on our planet began a rapid flowering plants, after which the earth began to appear new kinds of plants, and as a consequence – and new kinds of insects, and then a new species of amphibians. The study's authors argue that a little later, a boom of new plants and animals has led to the birth of primates. This was due to the fact that plants are the basis of nutrient chains, and they are capable of converting solar energy into sugar.

American Economic Review

to fight against obesity is becoming a political priority in almost all developed countries, but it has been shown that the current economic crisis, which is still wreaking havoc in the world and that does not seem to find channel of recoil, favors the increase of the same. Partly because people leave attend gyms which leads to a decrease in physical activity during non-working period, and partly because they begin to replace more expensive and healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, meats and dairy by the lower cost, as the starchy and known as food waste. In Spain for example, is considered that one third of children are at risk of being obese adults. He is believed that technological advance offering simple and economic way the machines of fast foods, which can be found almost anywhere, is one of the causes. The American Economic Review magazine considers that calories are spent at work or diviertiendose. With progress, the work has become more sedentary, the that it relates to a decrease in its spending to lose much of the manual labor of other centuries. The population with higher income has been able to replace that loss of manual labor by physical leisure activities. But when income insufficient to pay for this new way to compensate the downtime, they would become an important added cause of obesity. A problem to be studied deeply in order quickly to find a solution.
