GLEN ELLYN, Ill., April 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- College of DuPage Adjunct Professor of Metals and Jewelry Design, Aleksandra Vali, was recently invited to display her work at the prestigious 23rd annual Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair at Navy Pier in Chicago. A photo accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/1154e2d3-3eb9-48c3-afb1-682d917fd067. “I was thrilled to be invited and to have my creations featured at the fair,” Vali said. “I’ve attended SOFA Chicago for the last eight years and it was very exciting to be there as an exhibitor.” Vali was invited to be part of the fair after her successful participation at the renowned Aaron Farber Gallery’s “Jewelry as Sculpture as Jewelry” exhibition in New York City in 2016. She said exhibiting at SOFA provided great opportunities as both an artist and a teacher. “The fair gave me the opportunity to network with well-known and respected artists and gallery owners from all over the world,” she said. “Some of my students attended the fair and I believe it’s helpful, encouraging and motivating for them to see the success of their instructors. In addition, I was able to connect with many potential future students.” Trained in sculpture and ceramics in her native Russia, Vali said that she started teaching at age 14 when the instructors noticed she was skilled not only at creating art but also at teaching. She was asked to substitute for an art instructor for a semester and continued to substitute teach periodically. She went on to eventually earn a master’s degree from Novosibirsk State University in Russia and continued to teach part-time while working as a ceramicist for seven years, eventually becoming the lead artist for a large company. After moving to the U.S. in 2003, she enrolled in a jewelry class at College of DuPage and discovered a passion for metalsmithing and creating jewelry. Click here to read more.

— Hollywood has popularized lucid dreams with movies like Christopher Nolan's Inception and The Cell. What if you were able to act consciously in your dreams, meet certain people or script them as if you were a movie director? These abilities come naturally to very few individuals; for most, acquiring the skill demands years of conscious training. The startup Luciding aims to ease this process of becoming a lucid dreamer. Its LucidCatcher headband helps dreamers to tap into vivid dream experiences, control them, and improve retention of dream memories once awake. To match the surrealist nature of this fantastical project, Paris-based designer Erik Halley has embedded this technology into a couture mask. This wondrous object is ready to open new doors of perception in more ways than one. Recently relocated to San Francisco, Luciding is a tech company pioneering dream yoga with its wearable technology. Its LucidCatcher headband uses low-powered electrical pulses, tDCS technology (transcranial direct current stimulation), to provoke a higher state of consciousness but during REM sleep, which results an easier defining a dream from reality also known as lucid dreaming. Developed alongside with a Novosibirsk State University, “MIT” equivalent for Russia, Siberia its harmless stimulation facilitates a switch from deep sleep to REM sleep. The results bring a clearer perception of the difference between dream and reality, a state also known as lucid dreaming. Different from a led-light shedding masks which aim to trains determine being lucid, LucidCatcher slightly encourages the brain to activate frequencies resembled to those occur during a meditation. Company wants to raise money on Kickstarter platform to complete a consumer product, before that a number of prototypes were released for public beta. The campaign can be accessed and backed here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/luciding/1978993823?token=5c0a6037 An app — coming soon — will invite users to record a dream diary with the option to share with others and find a dream pal. Erik Halley a Parisian Accessories couturier, aspired by the idea of controlling the dreams, customized the band into a wearable masterpiece and it is available (price on demand to the artist). Artist, designer, couturier jeweler, Erik Halley has been enchanting the nocturnal world of Paris couture since 1994 with his fantastical and exquisite accessories. His creativity has taken him into uncharted realms of body jewelry and hybrid headpieces. He pulls from an eclectic corpus of references and inspiration, ranging from artifice to nature, futurism design to the animal world and pop-rock music to surrealist art. He has collaborated with the most prestigious names in the fashion world, including Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, Givenchy and Thierry Mugler. His most famous creation is probably the lobster-shaped headpiece that became the trademark of fashion icon Isabella Blow. Erik Halley has also worked with leather goods, watches (with Piaget), perfumes and collaborated with celebrities like Beyonce and David Bowie. Through all these experimentations he has stayed true to his motto: "A sophisticated aesthetic to serve beauty through transgression." For more information, please visit http://www.funded.today

The role of beamstrahlung in high-energy e+e- storage-ring colliders (SRCs) is examined. Particle loss due to the emission of single energetic beamstrahlung photons is shown to impose a fundamental limit on SRC luminosities at energies 2E0 140 GeV for head-on collisions and 2E0 40 GeV for crab-waist collisions. With beamstrahlung taken into account, we explore the viability of SRCs in the 2E0=240-500 GeV range, which is of interest in the precision study of the Higgs boson. At 2E0=240 GeV, SRCs are found to be competitive with linear colliders; however, at 2E0=400-500 GeV, the attainable SRC luminosity would be a factor 15-25 smaller than desired. © 2013 American Physical Society.

In the last two decades, considerable efforts were invested in the search for synthetic iron and manganese catalysts with nonporphyrinic ligands, mimicking metalloenzymes in the oxygenation at CH and CC bonds of organic molecules. In many cases, the detailed knowledge of intimate reaction mechanisms and of the nature of active sites was critical for the rational design of biomimetic catalysts with predictable reactivities. This review discusses the up-to-date mechanistic landscape of non-heme iron and manganese catalyzed oxidations of olefinic groups and aliphatic CH groups with H2O2. © 2014.

The theory of inhomogeneous superfluid turbulence is developed on the basis of kinetics of merging and splitting vortex loops. Vortex loops composing the vortex tangle can move as a whole with some drift velocity depending on their structure and length. The flux of length, energy, momentum, etc., executed by the moving vortex loops takes place. The situation here is exactly the same as in usual classical kinetic theory, with the difference being that the "carriers" of various physical quantities are not the point particles but extended objects (vortex loops), which possess an infinite number of degrees of freedom, with highly involved dynamics. We suggest to complete our investigation, based on the supposition that vortex loops have a Brownian structure, with the only degree of freedom being, lengths of loops l. This concept allows us to study the dynamics of the vortex tangle on the basis of the kinetic equation for the distribution function n (l,t) -the density of a loop in the space of their lengths. Imposing the coordinate dependence on the distribution function n (l,r,t) and modifying the "kinetic" equation with regard to an inhomogeneous situation, we are able to investigate various problems on the transport processes in superfluid turbulence. In this paper, we evaluate the flux of the vortex line density L (x,t) due to the gradient of this quantity. The corresponding evolution of quantity L (x,t) obeys the diffusion type equation, as it can be expected from dimensional analysis. The diffusion coefficient is arrived at from calculation of the (size-dependent) free path and drift velocity of the vortex loops, and takes the value 2.2κ, which exceeds approximately 20-fold the value obtained in early numerical simulation. We discuss the probable reason for this large discrepancy. We use the diffusion equation to describe the decay of the vortex tangle at a very low temperature. Comparison with recent experiments on decay of the superfluid turbulence is presented. © 2010 The American Physical Society.

The general scope, dealing with techniques and Arrhenius parameters, influence of the C-centered radical structure on recombination, re-formation, or cross-coupling rate constant for the reaction between an alkyl radical and a nitroxide, influence of the nitroxide structure on recombination, re-formation, or cross-coupling rate constant for the reaction between an alkyl radical and a nitroxide, miscellaneous, calculations and pathway for the recombination reaction are reviewed. In the same period, NMP was discovered and promoted. Quickly, it appeared that the cross-coupling and HAT reactions were important for the fate of the NMP. On the other hand, organic chemists use more and more alkoxyamines as tools for the total synthesis of natural products, and the success of such applications relies on the values of recombination, re-formation, or cross-coupling rate constant for the reaction between an alkyl radical and a nitroxide.

On May 8, 1980, the World Health Assembly at its 33rd session solemnly declared that the world and all its peoples had won freedom from smallpox and recommended ceasing the vaccination of the population against smallpox. Currently, a larger part of the world population has no immunity not only against smallpox but also against other zoonotic orthopoxvirus infections. Recently, recorded outbreaks of orthopoxvirus diseases not only of domestic animals but also of humans have become more frequent. All this indicates a new situation in the ecology and evolution of zoonotic orthopoxviruses. Analysis of state-of-the-art data on the phylogenetic relationships, ecology, and host range of orthopoxviruses-etiological agents of smallpox (variola virus, VARV), monkeypox (MPXV), cowpox (CPXV), vaccinia (VACV), and camelpox (CMLV)-as well as the patterns of their evolution suggests that a VARV-like virus could emerge in the course of natural evolution of modern zoonotic orthopoxviruses. Thus, there is an insistent need for organization of the international control over the outbreaks of zoonotic orthopoxvirus infections in various countries to provide a rapid response and prevent them from developing into epidemics. © 2013 Sergei N Shchelkunov.

Mechanochemistry of inorganic solids is a well-established field. In the last decade mechanical treatment has become increasingly popular as a method for achieving selective and "greener" syntheses also in organic systems. New groups and researchers enter the field of mechanochemistry, often re-discovering many of the previously known facts and effects, while at the same time neglecting other important concepts. The author of this contribution has long been involved in mechanochemical research in both inorganic and organic systems. The aim of this contribution is to provide an overview of the basic concepts of mechanochemistry in relation to inorganic and organic systems. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

The term "quantum turbulence" (QT) unifies the wide class of phenomena where the chaotic set of one dimensional quantized vortex filaments (vortex tangles) appear in quantum fluids and greatly influence various physical features. Quantum turbulence displays itself differently depending on the physical situation, and ranges from quasi-classical turbulence in flowing fluids to a near equilibrium set of loops in phase transition. The statistical configurations of the vortex tangles are certainly different in, say, the cases of counterflowing helium and a rotating bulk, but in all the physical situations very similar theoretical and numerical problems arise. Furthermore, quite similar situations appear in other fields of physics, where a chaotic set of one dimensional topological defects, such as cosmic strings, or linear defects in solids, or lines of darkness in nonlinear light fields, appear in the system. There is an interpenetration of ideas and methods between these scientific topics which are far apart in other respects. The main purpose of this review is to bring together some of the most commonly discussed results on quantum turbulence, focusing on analytic and numerical studies. We set out a series of results on the general theory of quantum turbulence which aim to describe the properties of the chaotic vortex configuration, starting from vortex dynamics. In addition we insert a series of particular questions which are important both for the whole theory and for the various applications. We complete the article with a discussion of the hot topic, which is undoubtedly mainstream in this field, and which deals with the quasi-classical properties of quantum turbulence. We discuss this problem from the point of view of the theoretical results stated in the previous sections. We also included section, which is devoted to the experimental and numerical suggestions based on the discussed theoretical models. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
