Mineral magic? Common mineral capable of making and breaking bonds

Reactions among minerals and organic compounds in hydrothermal environments are critical components of the Earth’s deep carbon cycle, they provide energy for the deep biosphere, and may have implications for the origins of life. However, very little is known about how minerals influence organic reactions. A team of researchers from Arizona State University have demonstrated how a common mineral acts as a catalysts for specific hydrothermal organic reactions – negating the need for toxic solvents or expensive reagents.
At the heart of organic chemistry, aka carbon chemistry, is the covalent carbon-hydrogen bond (C–H bond) ─ a fundamental link between carbon and hydrogen atoms found in nearly every organic compound.
The essential ingredients controlling chemical reactions of organic compounds in hydrothermal systems are the organic molecules, hot pressurized water, and minerals, but a mechanistic understanding of how minerals influence hydrothermal organic reactivity has been virtually nonexistent.
The ASU team set out to understand how different minerals affect hydrothermal organic reactions and found that a common sulfide mineral (ZnS, or Sphalerite) cleanly catalyzes a fundamental chemical reaction – the making and breaking of a C-H bond.
Their findings are published in the July 28 issue of theProceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The paper was written by a transdisciplinary team of ASU researchers that includes: Jessie Shipp (2013 PhD in Chemistry & Biochemistry), Ian Gould, Lynda Williams, Everett Shock, and Hilairy Hartnett. The work was funded by the National Science Foundation.
"Typically you wouldn’t expect water and an organic hydrocarbon to react. If you place an alkane in water and add some mineral it’s probably just going to sit there and do nothing," explains first author Shipp. "But at high temperature and pressure, water behaves more like an organic solvent, the thermodynamics of reactions change, and suddenly reactions that are impossible on the bench-top start becoming possible. And it’s all using naturally occurring components at conditions that can be found in past and present hydrothermal systems."

Lee Hurley of HurleyFX is putting together an absolutely stunning Groot cosplay and hopes to have it finished by DragonCon.

In the height comparison photo, he is shown standing next to his wife, who is 5’9”.

His wife, Lauren, will be cosplaying as Gamora:

one time when i was younger i had some of that no tears shampoo and i wanted to see if it was legit so when i was in the shower i squirted it into my eye and i think i went blind for like three days

i think you may be a bit dumb because no tears meant like no tears in your hair; no tangles….

Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought no tears as in crying too

MY LIFE IS A LIE

Bwhahaha!!

That first excuse is complete bullshit because it’s available everywhere, and that second excuse is bullshit because newvians are literally saying “omfg i love this show! but ew i don’t want to watch it”

I love the line about elitism. I was called “the result of a broken condom” “a traitor” and people asked “what’s wrong with you” because I voted for the Tenth Doctor to be eliminated on an elimination contest.

the nu who fandom is incredible

How can you be so fucking hateful? Like yeah great you like classic dw era good for you but do you really have to be so rude about dw fans who have only seen the new show? Do you really think its avaible everywhere? Its hard to find it even in english, not mentioning that theres plenty of people whose english is just not good enough to understand everything without subtitles (and try to find the subtitles, for example try to fucking find czech subtitles, fucking impossible). The other thing is also the fact that your saying that all the new era fans DONT WANT TO WATCH THE OLD ERA like whats fucking wrong with you if youre able to

it begins



well i just wanted to point out that classic who is not available everywhere; unless you’re willing to spend tons on money to buy episodes you’re pretty much limited to what you can find online and/or at libraries. {and if you’re disabled like me you are completely dependent on whatever serials the library has because golly gee i need captions and the internet refuses to caption things}
also if somebody doesn’t want to watch classic who that’s their choice {although i personally find it to be a sad one} and old who fans don’t get to disparage nu who fans anymore than nu who fans get to make fun of old who fans.
anyway that’s my ten cents bye.  

ok sources to watch classic who
download utorrent and go to thepiratebay
get into dailymotion and type the episode you want to watch
are u american? there is a website called hulu, apparently
idk just google where to watch classic dr who online its literally everywhere


It’s still not the easiest thing to find. And come on guys. I thought doctor who was all about acceptance and everyone being important. I mean, I started with newwho, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to watch classic who. In fact, I started, but the problem is that internet is so slow at my place that it takes me hours to watch one episode. Because of that, I got a little discouraged and it’s going to take me a wickedly long time to watch anything, but why are you being so hateful?

You’ve seen in video how tricky roly poly tiny not-quite-apples are. Now you can see in gifs, too!

Original, better-quality gifs here, here, and here.

(P.S. Did you know that Tumblr recently upped its gif size limit to 1.75 MB? Hallelujah!!)
