The question is only regarding memory. We remember some of our dreams. A dream is an experience of a special kind. It is something happening in the part of our brain which has to do with consciousness and experience, and the brains’ general power of memory applies to this as it does to other cases. But, of course, the brain in is in a peculiar state when we dream. The whole of it is not working, and so our recollection of dream is, as a rule, not really so good as that of our waking experiences.

The more clearly we remember a dream, the greater must have been the part of the brain machine that was working at the time we dreamed. On the other hand, there’s no doubt that we have many dreams which we do not remember at all when we wake, which were due to the working of only a very small part of the brain. We see from this that we can judge which dreams are the best kind to have, if we are to have any. The more definite a dream is, the more vivid it is and the better we remember it, the more awake our brain was when we dreamed, the less was the rest it was getting, the poorer and less valuable was our sleep. But when a dream is scarcely remembered, or not remembered at all, and when it is very faint and vague, then our brain was much less awake during the dream and our rest and sleep were so much the less injured

NOBEL PHYSICS WINNERSAndre Geim (left) and Konstantin Novoselov have received the 2010 Nobel Prize in physics for their discovery of graphene.

The 2010 Nobel Prize in physics has gone to the discoverers of a sheet of carbon atoms just a single atom thick that has proven to have remarkable properties. The prize was awarded to physicists Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, both of the University of Manchester in England, “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced October 5.

The material is made of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb pattern, forming a single layer so thin that it’s nearly see-through. For such a humble material, graphene displays some remarkable properties: It conducts electrons with extremely low resistance, can conduct heat 10 times better than copper and exhibits strange quantum effects. Graphene is also flexible and stronger than steel.

“It’s an amazing little material,” says physicist Joseph Stroscio of the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Gaithersburg, Md., campus.

EXTREME_THREAD_COUNT

EXTREME THREAD COUNTA flat sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice has impressive properties.

In a paper published in Science in 2004, Geim, Novoselov and their coauthors described extracting a single layer of carbon atoms from graphite, the same material in a pencil  (A quick grocery list dashed off with a pencil might contain minuscule amounts of graphene, in fact.) That technically demanding feat kicked off intense research as scientists rushed to characterize the bizarre material. In the six years since its discovery, almost 50,000 research papers on graphene have been published.

Graphene may form the basis for new kinds of electronics, transparent displays, efficient solar panels or even lightweight plastic composite materials for use in aerospace and other applications.

“When you couple it with all of the applications, that’s what whips physicists into a frenzy,” Stroscio says. “I’d like to see a high-speed graphene transistor in my cell phone.”

നിങ്ങളുടെ ഡിജിറ്റല്‍ ക്യാമറയിലെടുത്ത പുതിയ ചിത്രങ്ങളോ വീഡിയോയോ സുഹൃത്തുക്കളെയോ ബന്ധുക്കളെ കാണിക്കണമെങ്കില്‍ ഇനി ടിവിയോ കമ്പ്യൂട്ടറോ വേണമെന്നില്ല. ക്യാമറ മാത്രം മതി. ഭിത്തിയിലോ ഒരു സ്‌ക്രീനിലോ ക്യാമറയില്‍ നിന്ന് നേരിട്ടു തന്നെ ചിത്രങ്ങള്‍ പ്രൊജക്ട് ചെയ്ത് കാട്ടാം. ക്യാമറ നിര്‍മ്മാണരംഗത്തെ വന്‍കിട കമ്പനികളിലൊന്നായ നിക്കോണ്‍ ആണ് മിനി പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ അടങ്ങിയ കൂള്‍പിക്‌സ് ക്യാമറ S1100pj പുറത്തിറക്കുന്നത്.

ചെറിയ കോണ്‍ഫറന്‍സുകള്‍ക്കും ക്ലാസ്സുകള്‍ക്കും വലിയ പ്രൊജക്ടറുകള്‍ താങ്ങിപ്പിടിച്ചുപോവുന്ന രീതിയും ഇതോടെ ഒഴിവാക്കാം. പ്രൊജക്ടറില്‍ ഡിസ്‌പ്ലേ ചെയ്യാനുദ്ദേശിക്കുന്ന വീഡിയോയും ചിത്രങ്ങളും ക്യാമറയുടെ മെമ്മറി കാര്‍ഡിലേക്ക് മാറ്റിയാല്‍ മാത്രം മതി. ബാക്കിജോലികളെല്ലാം ക്യാമറ നോക്കിക്കൊള്ളും.

ക്യാമറയുടെ മുന്‍ഭാത്തെ പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ തൊട്ടടുത്ത ചുമരിനുനേരെ വെച്ച് പ്രവര്‍ത്തിക്കുക. വീഡിയോയും മറ്റും സാധാരണ പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ സ്‌ക്രീനിലെന്നപോലെ ചുമരില്‍ തെളിയും. ഏഴടി അകലെവരെയുള്ള പ്രതലത്തില്‍ ഇതിന്റെ പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ വ്യക്തമായ ചിത്രം ലഭ്യമാക്കും.


ഈ ക്യാമറയുടെ മറ്റൊരു പ്രത്യേകത ഇതിന്റെ തന്നെ യു.എസ്.ബി പോര്‍ട്ടു വഴി കമ്പ്യൂട്ടറുമായി കണക്ടുചെയ്തും പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ ആയി ഉപയോഗിക്കാം എന്നുള്ളതാണ്.

കഴിഞ്ഞ വര്‍ഷം തന്നെ നിക്കോണ്‍ S1000pj എന്നപേരില്‍ 12 മെഗാ പിക്‌സലും അഞ്ച്എക്‌സ് ഒപ്റ്റിക്കല്‍ സൂമുമുള്ള പ്രൊജക്ടര്‍ ക്യാമറ പുറത്തിറക്കിയിരുന്നു. എന്നാല്‍ പഴയതിനേക്കാള്‍ ഏറെ മാറ്റങ്ങളോടെയാണ് പുതിയ മോഡല്‍ ഇപ്പോള്‍ പുറത്തിറക്കുന്നത്. പഴയതിനേക്കാള്‍ കൂടുതല്‍ തെളിച്ചം, കൂടുതല്‍ കളര്‍ ക്ലാരിറ്റി, കൂടുതല്‍ വ്യക്തത, നവീനമായ ഡിസൈന്‍ തുടങ്ങിയവയാണ് പുതിയ മോഡലിലിന്റെ പ്രത്യേകത.




14.1പിക്‌സലും അഞ്ച് എക്‌സ് ഒപ്റ്റിക്കല്‍ സൂമോടെയുള്ള െൈവഡ് ആഗിള്‍ ലെന്‍സ് (28mm to 140mm) ഉള്ള പുതിയ മോഡലില്‍ 720 പിക്‌സലുള്ള ഹൈഡഫനിഷന്‍ വീഡിയോയും റെക്കാര്‍ഡ് ചെയ്യാനും സാധിക്കും. മൂന്നിഞ്ച്് വീതിയിലുള്ള ഡിസ്‌പ്ലേ 460000 ഡോട് റസല്യൂഷനിലുള്ളതും പൂര്‍ണമായും ടച്ച്‌സ്‌ക്രീന്‍ സംവിധാനത്തിലുമുള്ളതുമാണ്.

ഇതിനെലല്ലാം പുറമെ മറ്റു നിക്കോണ്‍ ക്യാമറകളിലുള്ളതുപോലെ കാലാവസ്ഥക്കും സമയത്തിനും അനുസരിച്ച് മാറ്റാവുന്ന 17 സ്‌ക്രീന്‍ മോഡ്, റഡ് ഐ കുറയ്ക്കാനുള്ള നികോണ്‍ സ്മാര്‍ട്ട്‌പോര്‍ട്രേയറ്റ് സിസ്റ്റം തുടങ്ങിയവയെല്ലാം S1100pjയിലും ഉണ്ട്. അടുത്തമാസത്തോടെ വിപണിയില്‍ ഇറങ്ങുന്ന S1100pj യുടെ വില 350 ഡോളര്‍ (ഏതാണ്ട് 16000 രൂപ) വരും.

DNA

A DNA test could pinpoint the roots of a person’s family to within a few miles, according to a new study.

Edinburgh University experts found genetic testing can detect the origins of people from a rural area to within five miles of their family home.

They said it might soon be possible to pinpoint the rural roots of city dwellers who have ancestors from different parts of the same country.

The report on the research is in the European Journal of Human Genetics.

It has been previously shown that there are genetic differences between populations in different countries.

Now the team in Edinburgh have tested whether the same analysis could be used to distinguish between people from the same country who were separated only by short distances.

Researchers looked at the genes of volunteers from Scottish islands, the Alpine valleys of Italy and villages in Croatia.

The study included only people whose four grandparents came from the same village, to ensure they had one definite place of origin. None of the volunteers were related to each other.

The results showed that by studying genetic differences it is possible to distinguish between people who live in villages that are only five miles apart.

They predicted the correct village of origin for 100% of the Italian sample, 96% of the Scottish sample and 89% in the Croatian sample.

Researchers concluded the pattern can be explained by the fact that in the past people tended to marry within their own community.

After many generations, the different villages developed their own genetic fingerprint, so that scientists can now detect that distant kinship.

Dr Jim Wilson, a Royal Society University research fellow at Edinburgh University, who led the study, said: “This exciting finding begs the question of whether we will be able to identify the rural origins of urban people with ancestry from many places across a country.

“These results hold out the possibility that with more data, using genome sequencing for instance, we might be able to do this.”
