Source: phys.orgThe fascinating world of bacteria that live as symbionts or parasites in animal hosts often remains a mystery to researchers. Under the leadership of Prof. Dr. Manuel Liebeke, Kiel University (CAU) and the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology in Bremen are contributing to solving this puzzle by researching the interactions between microbes and their host. However, there has been a lack of insight into what bacteria do in their natural environment.

Source: phys.orgWeyl semimetals are highly sought after by material scientists. First predicted in the early 2010s, they belong to the class of topological materials that owe their unique transport, optical and thermoelectric behavior to distinct geometric and topological features, rather than to their chemical composition. What sets Weyl semimetals apart is that their electrons behave as if they are massless due to the presence of nodes in the electronic band structure, leading to unusual and interesting properties.

Source: phys.orgNew England's landscape is known for many things, such as the brilliant diversity of colorful foliage on display each autumn. It is at this time of the year when another iconic landscape feature re-emerges as the leaves fall—thousands of miles of stone walls. Sometimes sinuous, sometimes geometric, stone walls are a signature feature of the New England landscape, a latticework of bare rock in an otherwise plant-covered world. When viewing them up close, it becomes clear that stone walls are also vital features of the ecosystem, with an abundance of creatures making their homes in and around them.

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson got a look late last month at what Blue Origin is building in Huntsville, Alabama, to take us to the surface of the moon. Blue Moon, as Jeff Bezos’ commercial space company Blue Origin has named it, is one of two lunar landers selected and purchased by NASA (SpaceX is the other) for more money than most of us will ever see in a lifetime: $3.4 billion. Right now, we’re still working toward launching Artemis II, which is expected to send astronauts around the moon and back to Earth, not to the moon. Artemis III is supposed to be the first landing of astronauts on the moon using SpaceX’s lunar lander - the mega-rocket Starship. And I continue to track NASA’s SLS as the Artemis I Moon Rocket is readied for rollout and first flight.

Critique of conflict: Exhibition of works by German artist Otta Dix View(s):‘Otto Dix – Social Criticism & War (1920-1924)’ – a travelling exhibition was opened by German ambassador Dr. Felix Neumann, Professor Rohan Nethsinghe, Vice-Chancellor of the University for the Visual and Performing Arts and Stefan Winkler, Director of the Goethe-Institut Sri Lanka at the J.D.A. Perera Gallery of the UVPA on Horton Place, Colombo 7 on Thursday. Otto Dix (1891-1969), renowned as one of Germany’s most pivotal artists in the time of the Weimar Republic, depicted its excesses and contradictions with an unflinchingly critical eye. Dix was not only an uncompromising chronicler of his time, he also often portrayed those who found themselves on the margins of society.

Save the Children – I View(s):Sri Lanka is beset by an alarming crisis that is receiving scant attention from policymakers: online violence against and exploitation of children, including the production and widespread dissemination of child porn, cyber extortion, receiving indecent text messages, cyberbullying, and even online gambling for children among a string of other crimes. Three out of 10 Sri Lankan children face some type of online violence, a 2021 study by Save the Children organisation has found. Law enforcement agencies in Sri Lanka say the complaints roll in every day and are piling up. While Sri Lanka has ratified all the necessary UN conventions and optional protocols, domestic legislation has not been brought in line. Save the Children – IIWhile the rest of the world is growing increasingly concerned about the dangerous impact of online crime targeting children, Palestinian children in Gaza face a much bigger immediate danger; getting targeted and killed by the Israeli Air Force.
