Nu mai este nici un secret faptul că China incepe sa depaseasca America şi Occidentul , în numeroase domenii dar  ştiril e exacte despre  ce se intampla acolo sunt  adesea limitate. Săptămâna trecută in telegramele secrete  provenite de la  ambasada americana din Beijing  Wikileaks, a aruncat o  lumină privind  paşii pe oamenii de stiinta chinezi i-au facut în domenii cum ar fi fisiunea nucleară, datele biometrice, şi chiar in teleportare.

Telegrame confidenţiale diplomatice trimise de Ambasada americana din  Beijing la Washington în luna februarie sugerează ca China estein plin progres stiintific si isi  extinde agresiv resursele  în domeniul energiei nucleare, avand planuri de a deschide cel puţin 70 de centrale nucleare în următorii zece ani. Mai interesant, Academia Chineza de Stiinte (CAS) are o  finanţare a cercetării în Institutul de Fizica plasmei (IPP) pentru a desfăşura activităţi de cercetare de varf în fuziunea nucleară.

China a luat, deja, un avans important in fata statelor occidentale si a SUA, in ceea ce priveste investitiile in infrastructura si tehnologii futuriste.

Pana in prezent, nu se stia, cu exactitate, nivelul la care au ajuns chinezii in aceste domenii de maxima importanta. Astazi, dupa publicarea pe Wikileaks a documentelor care privesc China, o intreaga lume afla cu stupoare ca ea  a facut pasi importanti  in domenii precum fisiunea nucleara, biometrie si chiar teleportarea fizica!

Conform unei telegrame secrete, Academia Chineza de Stiinte dispune de fonduri nelimitate pentru sustinerea cercetarilor de la Institutul de Fizica al Plasmei,care este angajat in cercetari fara precedent in privinta fuziunii nucleare. 

Se pare ca, China lucreaza la un nou reactor, intitulat Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak. In acest reactor, savantii chinezi spera sa obtina o fuziune nucleara controlata care sa mentina nedefinit o temperatura extrema.

In anul 2009, cercetatorii chinezi au reusit sa mentina o reactie nucleara care atinsese temperatura de 18 milioane grade Celsius, pana la 400 de secunde, dupa ce anterior mentinusera, timp de 60 de seunde, o reactie nucleara de 180 milioane grade Celsius.

Pe parcursul acestui an, chinezii si-au propus sa obtina temperatura de 180 milioane grade Celsius, mentinuta timp de 400 secunde; spre disperarea lor, serviciile secrete americane nu au reusit sa afle daca asiaticii au reusit acesta performanta, conform documentelor publicate de Wikileaks.

China face pasi uriasi si spre celebrele operatiuni de teleportare: conform unui oficial al Universitatii de Stiinte si Tehnologii din orasul Hefei, savantii chinezi ar fi reusit teleportarea cu succes a unei singure particule quantum, iar in prezent lucreaza la teleportarea a doua particule.

Institutul de Tehnologii Inteligente din China nu se lasa mai prejos, reusind crearea unui sistem biometric care identifica persoanele in functie de trasaturi faciale, greutate si proportii corporale. Device-ul futurist iti citeste toate datele antropometrice intr-o fractiune de secunda

Wikileaked Cables from Beijing Reveal China’s Pursuit of Fusion Power, Teleportation

It’s no secret that China is beating up on America and the West in everything from infrastructure to technology investment, but news of exactly what the People’s Republic is up to is often scarce.

So while the diplomatic establishment continues to reel from the stink of its own dirty laundry in last week’s Wikileaks document dump, cables coming from the American Embassy in Beijing are also shedding light on the strides Chinese scientists are making in far-out fields like nuclear fission, biometrics, and even quantum teleportation.

One confidential diplomatic cable sent from the Beijing Embassy to Washington in February suggests China is doing big things at the small scale.

For one, China is aggressively expanding its nuclear energy resources, with plans to open at least 70 nuclear plants in the next decade. More interestingly, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is pouring research funding into its Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP) to conduct ongoing research into nuclear fusion.

Apparently China has been hard at work on its Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) reactor, which is designed to sustain a controlled fusion reaction that can go on indefinitely at high temperatures. In 2009, researchers apparently sustained a 18-million-degree reaction for 400 seconds, and a 180-million-degree reaction for 60 seconds.

Their goal for 2010 was to sustain a 180-million-degree reaction for more than 400 seconds, though it’s unclear if they achieved that. Moreover, IPP is apparently conducting research on hybrid fission-fusion reactors, though details are slim.

Perhaps most interesting: China doubled the IPP budget in 2009 over 2008, and the diplomatic chatter suggests 2010’s budget saw a significant boost as well. Amid choppy economic waters, such funding bumps indicate a real commitment on China’s part to figure out the fusion energy puzzle.

China’s sci-tech ambitions don’t stop there. While the evidence is anecdotal, the embassy seems to think the Chinese are pulling ahead in fields like quantum communications and even teleportation.

To quote one diplomat’s description of a trip to the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in Hefei: “A cursory walk through their labs seemed to indicate they had already succeeded in single-particle quantum teleportation and are now trying to conduct dual-particle quantum teleportation.”

Then there’s the Big Brother tech that we’ve come to expect from China. The same cable says the CAS’s Institute of Intelligent Machines (IIM) in Hefei has created a biometric system that identifies individuals through their pace and gait.

“The device measure weight and two-dimensional sheer forces applied by a person’s foot during walking to create a uniquely identifiable biometrics profile,” the cable says, and can be installed covertly in a floor to surreptitiously collect biometric data.

VIDEO: OAMENII DE STIINTA AU DESCOPERIT GENA INFIDELITATII SI A OBSEDATILOR SEXUALI DE AMBELE SEXE .The love-cheat gene: One in four born to be unfaithful, claim scientists

The tendency to cheat could be down to a variant in a person's genes, a new study has found

Supozitia glumeata, conform careia unii oameni au infidelitatea in sange, si-a gasit, in sfarsit, confirmarea stiintifica. Dupa ani si ani de cautari, o echipa de cercetatori americani a descoperti gena care ne arunca in promiscuitate,indemnandu-ne sa ne cautam neincetat alti si alti parteneri sexuali de ocazie.

Pe baza primelor cercetari, gena buclucasa (botezata, in gluma, gena sobolanului obsedat) este responsabila de comportamentul deviant al obsedatilor sexuali de ambele sexe. Cand un barbat sau o femeie posesor / posesoare al genei in cauza, vede un potential partener sexual, acesta / aceasta „traieste” o reactie chimica extrem de puternica, comparabila doar cu senzatiile unui parior inveterat care simte mirosul castigului, sau cu trairile incontrolabile ale unui alcoolic care isi savureaza bautura preferata.

Cercetatorii Universitatii de Stat din New York au studiat un lot de 180 barbati si femei, testandu-i, initial, in cautarea genei infidelitatii, denumita stiintific gena DRD4. Cei la care a fost identificata „gena dezmatului” s-au dovedit a fi cu mult mai nerabdatori in a-si insela partenerul(a) actual, in favoarea unei experiente sexuale cu necunoscuti(te).

Gena DRD4, odata activata de noua experienta sexuala, elibereaza o mare cantitate de dopamina in creier, oferind persoanei senzatii puternice de placere. Noua descoperire a venit la scurt timp dupa ce oamenii de stiinta americani au anuntat, in decursul lunii trecute, ca proaspat identificata gena DRD4 poate afecta chiar viata politica, deoarece oamenii care o poseda sunt intotdeuna inclinati in a avea si expune pozitii si opinii liberale.

The love-cheat gene: One in four born to be unfaithful, claim scientists

It might seem like the perfect get-out clause for those with a ­roving eye: some people just aren’t built to be faithful.

Scientists have found a gene that raises the odds of ­cheating on a partner.

They say that when a man or woman with the ‘love rat gene’ has an affair, they receive the same chemical rush as a gambler whose luck has changed or an cheating on a partner

The tendency to cheat could be down to a variant in a person’s genes, a new study has found (picture posed by model)

Researchers quizzed 180 young men and women about their attitude towards relationships and tested them for a gene called DRD4, which affects levels of the brain chemical dopamine.

The one quarter or so with the ‘love rat’ version of the gene were more than twice as likely to be unfaithful. And when they did cheat, they had more one-night stands, the journal PLoS ONE reports.

Researcher Justin Garcia said: ‘What we found was that individuals with a certain variant of the DRD4 gene were more likely to have a history of uncommitted sex, including one-night stands and acts of infidelity.

‘The motivation seems to stem from a system of pleasure and reward, which is where the release of dopamine comes in.

‘In cases of uncommitted sex, the risks are high, the rewards substantial and the motivation variable – all elements that ensure a dopamine “rush”.’

He added that his results suggest it is possible to feel committed to a partner, but still feel the need to cheat on them.

But those with a wandering eye cannot wholly blame their genes.

Mr Garcia, of the State University of New York, said: ‘The study doesn’t let transgressors off the hook. Not everyone with this ­genotype (genetic make-up) will have one-night stands or commit infidelity.’

Last month, scientists found that the same strain of the DRD4 gene can also make people have more liberal views.

Because the genetic variant drives people to seek out ‘novelty’, it can also make people more likely to seek out less conventional political views, the U.S. study found.

Those with the gene supposedly seek out other people’s points of view and are influenced by them far more than those without the gene.

In the U.S. this mean that people with the gene were more likely to have a liberal political viewpoint.

Cainii sunt mai inteligenti decat pisicile,spune un studiu recent al Universitatii Oxford. Dogs are „smarter than cats”.

Dogs are cleverer than cats because their friendly character has helped them develop bigger brains, a study set to end the argument between pet lovers has shown.  

Un studiu demarat de prestigioasa Universitate engleza Oxford, sustine ca cel mai bun prieten al omului este mai inteligent decat pisica. Rezultatul cercetarilor se doreste a fi un agument final care sa puna capat, odata pentru totdeuna, tachinarilor ironice si rivalitatii dintre iubitorii de caini si cei de pisici.

Inteligenta cainilor a evoluat in timp cu o rata mai mare decat cea a pisicilor. S-a crezut, pana nu demult, ca picicile sunt mai inteligente decat cainii, pe baza faptului ca nu au o viata sociala, nu au nevoie de atentia oamenilor si reusesc sa supravietuiasca singure.

Insa, cercetatorii au descoperit ca pisicile au creierul proportional mai mic decat al cainlor, tocmai datorita faptului ca acestea nu au o viata sociala atat de complexa precum a prietenilor latratori.

In premiera, cercetatorii britanici au contorizat istoria evolutionara a creierelor diferitelor grupe de mamifere, pe o perioada istorica de peste 60 milioane ani. Au descoperit, asadar, o legatura evidenta intre dimensiunea creierului proportional cu restul corpului si gradul vietii sociale a mamiferului in cauza.

A reiesit ca mamiferele cu cele mai mari creiere tind sa traiasca in grupuri sociale stabile in genul maimutelor, porcilor, delfinilor si cailor. La polul opus, s-au situat mamiferele solitare, precum felinele, rinocerii sau cervidele.

„Toti cainii se pricep de minune sa rezolve problemele aparute, ceea ce trimite cu gandul la legendara inteligenta a vulpilor, lupilor si sacalilor, stramosii directi ai cainilor de astazi”, susine Dr. Susanne Shultz, cercetator principal in cadrul studiului.

Dogs are ‘smarter than cats’

Dogs are cleverer than cats because their friendly character has helped them develop bigger brains, a study set to end the argument between pet lovers has shown.

The intelligence of “a man’s best friend” has evolved at a greater rate than the less social cat over millions of years, scientists at Oxford University have claimed.

It was often thought that the feline pet was smarter than its canine counterpart because it needed less attention but researchers have discovered that cat’s brains are smaller because they are less social.

For the first time scientists have charted the evolutionary history of the brain across different groups of mammals over 60 million years and identified huge variations in how their brains have changed. 

22 Nov 2010

They found that there was a link between the size of an animal’s brain in relation to the rest of its body and how socially active it was.

The study analysed available data on the brain and body size of over 500 species of living and fossilised mammals. The brains of monkeys grew the most over time followed by horses, dolphins, camels and dogs.

It found that groups of mammals with relatively bigger brains tended to live in stable social groups. The brains of more solitary mammals such as cats, deer and rhino, grew much more slowly during the same period.

Previous research had suggested that the growth rate of the brain relative to body size followed a general trend across all animal groups.

The study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences overturns this view, showing there is a wide variation in patterns of brain growth across different groups of mammals and not all of them have larger brains – suggesting social animals had to think more.

Dr Susanne Shultz, who led the research, said: “Dogs have always been regarded as the more social animals while cats like to get on with their own thing alone. But it appears that interaction is good for the brain and extends to other species, like ourselves.

“We are even more social than monkeys and apes and it is this ability to get on with each other that has helped us dominate the planet.

“This study overturns the long-held belief that brain size has increased across all mammals. Instead, groups of highly social species have undergone much more rapid increases than more solitary species.

“This suggests the co-operation and co-ordination needed for group living can be challenging and over time some mammals have evolved larger brains to be able to cope with the demands of socialising.”

Dr Shultz added: “All dogs are quite good at solving problems, which gives credence to the traditional image of the cunning fox which is a member of the same family. Dogs descended from wolves which appear to have the biggest brains as they live in large family groups.”
