Journal Reference:

  1. Sofie Nyström, Per Hammarström. Amyloidogenesis of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2022; 144 (20): 8945 DOI: 10.1021/jacs.2c03925

In those who have serious and long-term COVID-19, organs other than the lungs can be gravely affected. Complex symptoms and damage in, for example, the heart, kidneys, eyes, nose, and brain, as well as disturbed blood coagulation, can persist. Why the illness affects the body in this way is largely a mystery. Now, researchers at LiU have found a biological mechanism which has never been described before, and which can be a part of the explanation.

The research team studies illnesses which are caused by misfolded proteins, of which Alzheimer?s disease in the brain is the most well-known example. The researchers noted that there are many similarities between COVID-19-related symptoms and those which are observed in illnesses caused by misfolded proteins.

The functions of proteins are strongly affected by the fact that proteins are folded in specific ways that give rise to a specific three-dimensional structure. As well as this shape, a protein can also assume an alternative form. Over 30 different proteins are known to have this kind of alternative shape, which is associated with illness. This alternative folded protein is called amyloid. The LiU researchers wondered whether the virus which causes COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, contains a protein that can create amyloid. They were specifically interested in the spike protein on the surface of the virus, which the virus uses to interact with the body?s cells and infect them.

Using computer simulation, the researchers discovered that the coronavirus? spike protein contained seven different sequences which potentially could produce amyloid. Three of the seven sequences met the researchers? criteria for being counted as amyloid-producing sequences when experimentally tested. They produced, among other things, so-called fibrils, which look like long threads when examined under an electron microscope.

But do these fibrils arise spontaneously? It is well known that many illnesses, such as Alzheimer?s, are preceded by a process where the body cuts up large proteins into smaller pieces, which can in turn produce the harmful amyloid. In their study, the researchers show that an enzyme from immune system?s white blood cells can cut up coronavirus? spike protein. When the spike protein is cut up, it produces the exact piece of protein which, according to the researchers? analysis, is most likely to produce amyloid. This enzyme is released in large quantities from one type of white blood cells, neutrophils, which are released early on during infections such as COVID-19. When the researchers mixed pure spike protein with this enzyme, called neutrophil elastase, unusual fibrils were produced.

?We have never seen such perfect, but scary, fibrils as these ones from the amyloid-producing SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and pieces thereof. The fibrils starting from the full-sized spike protein branched out like limbs on a body. Amyloids don?t usually branch out like that. We believe that it is due to the characteristics of the spike protein,? says Per Hammarström, professor at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM) at Linköping University.

Previous research, including a study by South African researchers, has indicated that the spike protein may be involved in the production of small blood clots. The blood contains the fibrin protein, which helps the blood to coagulate when a vessel is damaged, so that the hole seals again and stops bleeding. When the injury has begun to heal, the coagulate is supposed to be broken up by plasmin, which is also found in blood. The researchers at LiU mixed amyloid-producing protein pieces from the spike protein together with these bodily substances in test tubes, and saw that the fibrin coagulate which was then produced could not be broken down in the usual way by plasmin. This newly discovered mechanism may lie behind the production of similar micro blood clots that have been observed in both serious and long-term COVID-19. Disturbed blood coagulation is also seen in many amyloid-related illnesses.

?We can see that the spike protein, when affected by our own immune system, can produce amyloid structures, and that this can potentially affect our blood coagulation. We believe that this discovery is significant for many fields of research, and we hope that other researchers will examine the questions that it raises,? says Sofie Nyström, who is an associate professor at IFM and the other author on the study.

The research has been funded by the Swedish Research Council.

Beginning, Autogrid, a pioneering AI-based optimization company for Distributed Energy Resources (DER), on a mission to accelerate access to clean, reliable and affordable energy, announced the signing of a definitive acquisition agreement by Schneider Electric, a global specialist in automation and energy management. The transaction, subject to obtaining regulatory clearance and certain customary closing conditions, is expected to close in the coming months.

AutoGrid builds AI-powered software that helps make the world of energy smarter and offers a truly integrated flexibility management suite for the unpredictable energy industry: AutoGrid Flex.

This suite has three applications designed expressly for the most flexible use cases, including distributed generation, battery storage, and demand response resources: Autogrid DROMS, Autogrid VPP, and Autogrid DERMS. Schneider Electric had also collaborated with Autogrid for this DERMS platform, which was ranked first in the world by the main independent research company in the energy sector, Guidehouse Research.

Autogrid and Schneider Electric: the same vision for sustainable electricity

AutoGrid and Schneider Electric have announced various partnerships since 2015 intended to strengthen their position in edge control and analytics software for microgrids and distributed energy resources, a market expected to be worth more than $50 billion in the coming years.

In 2019, the two companies presented their joint solution: ?Advanced Distribution Management System? (ADMS) which integrated ?Schneider Ecostructure? into the AutoGrid Flex? suite and the creation of a distributed energy resources management system (DERMS) .

Dr. Amit Narayan, Founder and CEO of Autogrid, said:

?As distributed energy resources proliferate, electric utilities are looking for a way to balance supply and demand on a complex, dynamic, and multi-directional grid. Combining our solution with Schneider’s capabilities allows utilities to leverage data to balance a distributed grid with flexible capacity of all DERs connected to the grid. »

In January 2020, the two companies signed a global reseller agreement allowing Schneider Electric to distribute AutoGrid Flex? to electric utilities to automate the entire value chain, from consumers to the control center.

This acquisition will provide AutoGrid with the resources and global reach to accelerate its growth and pace of product innovation. Nadčge Petit, Innovation Director at Schneider Electric, says:

?Schneider Electric and AutoGrid share the vision of bringing about a more sustainable world through electrification, digitalization and decarbonization. Thanks to AutoGrid, we will be able to bring a strong added value to energy companies by offering them cutting-edge technologies capable of stimulating the adoption of smart grids and the reduction of carbon emissions. We are excited to create maximum impact with our customers by amplifying the reach and scale of AutoGrid. »

Accelerating global access to sustainable energy

AutoGrid’s technology plays a direct role in the fight against climate change.

The AutoGrid Energy Internet Platform? (EIP) delivers advanced energy data, the speed and scale needed to forecast, optimize and control tens of thousands of Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) and millions of participants, using trillions of data points, in real time.

AutoGrid’s Virtual Power Plant (VPP) and Distributed Energy Resource Management (DERMS) platform provides a sustainable alternative to polluting and costly fossil fuel-dependent standby power plants by managing and deploying additional untapped capacity from batteries, electric vehicles and flexible charging. Amit Narayan concludes:

?We launched AutoGrid with the unique mission of accelerating global access to sustainable energy. I am grateful for the help we received from Schneider Electric as a strong supporter throughout this journey. I can say with confidence that we could not have found a better partner more aligned in terms of values ??and commitment to the mission of decarbonizing our planet. I now look forward to the next chapter to evolve our technology even faster to solve this urgent climate crisis we face. »

With a simple helmet over the eyes, become a seller in seconds. Franprix, Decathlon, Total or even SNCF? Many companies are turning to immersive training for their employees. The Pitchboy company, which specializes in the development of these offers, currently supports around forty clients.

Virtually immersed in a completely redesigned store, the future Franprix employee can navigate between the fruit and vegetable aisles, put packets of madeleines on the shelves and even chat with a fictitious customer. According to Warren Coopman, manager at Pitchboy, this technology offers a real advantage over face-to-face training. ?With a trainer, there is time to do one or two role plays. With a virtual reality headset, this training room is available anytime, anytime. »

To accentuate this immersion, Pitchboy has even added artificial intelligence. ?It’s like a flight simulator, but we’ve adapted it to the business world. We can talk, the machine understands what is said, and gives appropriate answers,? adds Warren Coopman. In a bank, for example, the employee can learn how to sell an online payment system to a demanding customer.

Training in management, safety, or even education, everything becomes possible. At the end of the exercise, a personalized skills assessment is presented. On the side of client companies, a new step has been taken. Jonathan Goldfarb, Director of Recruitment and Training at Franprix, highlights this development. ?It’s not innovation for innovation’s sake, we’re trying to improve the daily lives of employees. The mixture of these technologies will allow many advances. »

Also useful for employment

In addition to being used for training, these latest technologies are also used to discover jobs. At the Rosny-sous-Bois shopping center (Seine-Saint-Denis), the high-tech Yookan space allows you to test several professions thanks to virtual reality. Installed since November 2021, in collaboration with Pôle emploi, this free space is entirely devoted to professional integration. Since May 18, six new job simulations have been added. Plumbing, mechanics, construction and even chicken cutting, immersion allows you to exercise your skills.

With more than 17,500 recorded visits, Bruno Bastet, deputy director of Yookan, insists on the relevance of the project. ?These are essential tools to interest young people, introduce them to professions and give a more precise idea of ??their practices. Sabrina, 15, came to test the simulation on construction sites. ?It’s very realistic, much more than you think, you’re really in the shoes of the employee. Jordan, mediator at the centre, emphasizes his interest in helping people in difficulty.

A woman with refugee status came to test and discover trades. Even though she didn’t speak French very well, she was able to understand right away how to practice thanks to the headphones. We were then able to accompany and guide him. But Pitchboy’s ambitions go further. The company is already considering developing augmented reality for its immersive training. No more need for a headset: with a simple phone and an application, it will be possible to make a customer appear virtually in his office or in a Franprix department to start the conversation. The opportunity to train, alone, at any time.

Les scientifiques ont fait un grand pas vers la cration d’un internet quantique. Cette technologie permettrait de “transporter” des informations en un instant et contribuerait la rvolution promise de l’informatique quantique et un changement radical dans le fonctionnement des rseaux. Des chercheurs ont russi tlporter des informations quantiques travers un rseau rudimentaire. Cette premire du genre constitue une tape importante vers un futur Internet quantique. Cette perce a t rendue possible par une mmoire quantique grandement amliore et une qualit accrue des liens quantiques entre les trois nuds du rseau. Les chercheurs, qui travaillent QuTech, une collaboration entre l’Universit de technologie de Delft et l’Organisation nerlandaise pour la recherche scientifique applique, ont publi il y a peu leurs rsultats dans la revue scientifique Nature.

1653772003 913 Des scientifiques font un grand pas vers un Internet quantique

La puissance d’un futur Internet quantique repose sur la capacit d’envoyer des informations quantiques entre les nuds du rseau. Cela permettra toutes sortes d’applications, telles que le partage scuris d’informations confidentielles, la mise en relation de plusieurs ordinateurs quantiques pour augmenter leur capacit de calcul et l’utilisation de capteurs quantiques relis entre eux et trs prcis.

Envoi d’informations quantiques

Les nuds d’un tel rseau quantique sont constitus de petits processeurs quantiques. L’envoi d’informations quantiques entre ces processeurs n’est pas une mince affaire. Une possibilit consiste envoyer des bits quantiques l’aide de particules de lumire mais, en raison des pertes invitables dans les cbles en fibre de verre, en particulier sur de longues distances, les particules de lumire risquent fort de ne pas atteindre leur destination. Comme il est fondamentalement impossible de copier simplement des bits quantiques, la perte d’une particule de lumire signifie que l’information quantique est irrmdiablement perdue.

La tlportation offre un meilleur moyen d’envoyer des informations quantiques. Le protocole de tlportation quantique doit son nom aux similitudes avec la tlportation dans les films de science-fiction : le bit quantique disparat du ct de l’metteur et apparat du ct du rcepteur. Comme le bit quantique n’a donc pas besoin de traverser l’espace intermdiaire, il n’y a aucune chance qu’il soit perdu. Cela fait de la tlportation quantique une technique cruciale pour un futur Internet quantique.

Un bon contrle du systme

Pour pouvoir tlporter des bits quantiques, plusieurs ingrdients sont ncessaires : un lien quantique intriqu entre l’metteur et le rcepteur, une mthode fiable de lecture des processeurs quantiques et la capacit de stocker temporairement des bits quantiques. Des recherches antrieures menes QuTech ont dmontr qu’il est possible de tlporter des bits quantiques entre deux nuds adjacents. Les chercheurs de QuTech ont maintenant montr pour la premire fois qu’ils peuvent rpondre l’ensemble des exigences et ont dmontr la tlportation entre des nuds non adjacents, en d’autres termes sur un rseau. Ils ont tlport des bits quantiques du nud “Charlie” au nud “Alice”, avec l’aide d’un nud intermdiaire “Bob”.

La tlportation en trois tapes

La tlportation se droule en trois tapes. Tout d’abord, le “tlporteur” doit tre prpar, ce qui signifie qu’un tat intriqu doit tre cr entre Alice et Charlie. Alice et Charlie n’ont pas de lien physique direct, mais ils sont tous deux directement connects Bob. Pour cela, Alice et Bob crent un tat intriqu entre leurs processeurs. Bob stocke ensuite sa partie de l’tat intriqu. Ensuite, Bob cre un tat intriqu avec Charlie. Un “tour de passe-passe” de mcanique quantique est alors effectu : en effectuant une mesure spciale dans son processeur, Bob transmet en quelque sorte l’intrication. Rsultat : Alice et Charlie sont maintenant intriqus, et le tlporteur est prt tre utilis !

La deuxime tape consiste crer le “message” – le bit quantique – tlporter. Il peut s’agir, par exemple, de ‘1’ ou de ‘0’ ou de diverses autres valeurs quantiques intermdiaires. Charlie prpare cette information quantique. Pour montrer que la tlportation fonctionne de manire gnrique, les chercheurs ont rpt l’ensemble de l’exprience pour diffrentes valeurs de bits quantiques.

La troisime tape est la tlportation effective de Charlie Alice. cette fin, Charlie effectue une mesure conjointe avec le message sur son processeur quantique et sur sa moiti de l’tat intriqu (Alice possde l’autre moiti). Ce qui se passe alors est quelque chose qui n’est possible que dans le monde quantique : la suite de cette mesure, l’information disparat du ct de Charlie et apparat immdiatement du ct d’Alice.

On pourrait penser que tout est alors termin, mais rien n’est moins vrai. En fait, le bit quantique a t chiffr lors du transfert ; la cl est dtermine par le rsultat de la mesure de Charlie. Charlie envoie donc le rsultat de la mesure Alice, aprs quoi Alice effectue l’opration quantique approprie pour dcrypter le bit quantique. Par exemple via un “bit flip” : 0 devient 1 et 1 devient 0. Une fois qu’Alice a effectu l’opration correcte, l’information quantique peut tre utilise. La tlportation a russi !

La tlportation plusieurs reprises

Les recherches ultrieures porteront sur l’inversion des tapes 1 et 2 du protocole de tlportation. Cela signifie qu’il faut d’abord crer (ou recevoir) le bit quantique tlporter et seulement ensuite prparer le tlporteur effectuer la tlportation. L’inversion de l’ordre est particulirement difficile, car l’information quantique tlporter doit tre stocke pendant que l’intrication est cre. Toutefois, elle prsente un avantage considrable, car la tlportation peut alors tre effectue entirement ” la demande”. Cela est pertinent, par exemple, si l’information quantique contient le rsultat d’un calcul difficile ou si la tlportation doit tre effectue plusieurs fois. long terme, ce type de tlportation servira donc d’pine dorsale l’Internet quantique.

Les scientifiques esprent maintenant qu’il s’agit d’une premire tape vers la construction d’un rseau quantique plus vaste fond sur le partage d’informations quantiques. Cet avenir est encore “assez lointain”, affirment les chercheurs. Mais lexperience offre une “voie potentielle vers l’avant” pour construire des applications relles de la technologie. Cette russite n’est pas seulement une victoire pour la science fondamentale, elle reprsente galement une avance dans la rsolution des problmes du monde rel ncessaires pour faire passer cette fascinante application quantique l’tape suivante , crivent les scientifiques Oliver Slattery et Yong-Su Kim dans un article d’accompagnement.

La construction effective de tels systmes ncessitera des systmes plus robustes, ainsi que de nouvelles interfaces qui devraient amliorer l’efficacit du systme. Selon les auteurs, cela sera crucial pour appliquer les perces ralises dans le cadre de ces travaux des systmes quantiques plus complexes. Ce succs est rapport dans une nouvelle tude intitule “Qubit teleportation between non-neighbouring nodes in a quantum network” (Tlportation de quubits entre des nuds non voisins dans un rseau quantique), publie dans Nature.

Les scientifiques ont fait un grand pas vers la cration d’un internet quantique. Cette technologie permettrait de “transporter” des informations en un instant et contribuerait la rvolution promise de l’informatique quantique et un changement radical dans le fonctionnement des rseaux. Des chercheurs ont russi tlporter des informations quantiques travers un rseau rudimentaire. Cette premire du genre constitue une tape importante vers un futur Internet quantique. Cette perce a t rendue possible par une mmoire quantique grandement amliore et une qualit accrue des liens quantiques entre les trois nuds du rseau. Les chercheurs, qui travaillent QuTech, une collaboration entre l’Universit de technologie de Delft et l’Organisation nerlandaise pour la recherche scientifique applique, ont publi il y a peu leurs rsultats dans la revue scientifique Nature.

1653772003 913 Des scientifiques font un grand pas vers un Internet quantique

La puissance d’un futur Internet quantique repose sur la capacit d’envoyer des informations quantiques entre les nuds du rseau. Cela permettra toutes sortes d’applications, telles que le partage scuris d’informations confidentielles, la mise en relation de plusieurs ordinateurs quantiques pour augmenter leur capacit de calcul et l’utilisation de capteurs quantiques relis entre eux et trs prcis.

Envoi d’informations quantiques

Les nuds d’un tel rseau quantique sont constitus de petits processeurs quantiques. L’envoi d’informations quantiques entre ces processeurs n’est pas une mince affaire. Une possibilit consiste envoyer des bits quantiques l’aide de particules de lumire mais, en raison des pertes invitables dans les cbles en fibre de verre, en particulier sur de longues distances, les particules de lumire risquent fort de ne pas atteindre leur destination. Comme il est fondamentalement impossible de copier simplement des bits quantiques, la perte d’une particule de lumire signifie que l’information quantique est irrmdiablement perdue.

La tlportation offre un meilleur moyen d’envoyer des informations quantiques. Le protocole de tlportation quantique doit son nom aux similitudes avec la tlportation dans les films de science-fiction : le bit quantique disparat du ct de l’metteur et apparat du ct du rcepteur. Comme le bit quantique n’a donc pas besoin de traverser l’espace intermdiaire, il n’y a aucune chance qu’il soit perdu. Cela fait de la tlportation quantique une technique cruciale pour un futur Internet quantique.

Un bon contrle du systme

android has tons of excellent third-party launcher apps that allow users to customize their smartphone however they want. One of the best things about Android is its customization options, and using a custom launcher is one of the easiest ways to get started. Although there are several third-party launchers, not all of them are versatile enough to offer unique features and functions without affecting the performance and battery life of the phone.

While many Android users already use third-party launchers or are at least familiar with the concept, not everyone may know what they are. A launcher is basically a home screen app that displays apps, widgets, and other shortcuts on the device. Unlike iPhone users who are stuck with the home screen UI offered by Apple, Android users can easily change this by installing a third-party launcher without having to root their device or install a ROM. personalized.

One of the oldest and best third party launchers is Nova Launcher. It offers great customization options, is light on system resources, and supports theme packs. Moreover, most of the features are free and it is no problem to upgrade to the ?Pro? version. There are also no ads in the free version to spoil the experience. The app is also often updated with new features and fixes, making it one of the first apps that many users install on their new Android smartphones.

Personalize your phone with launcher apps

Apex is another notable launcher app that has been a favorite of longtime Android users. It comes with its own free icon packs, a host of theme packs, and a host of other features that make it one of the best and proven launchers out there. Again, the free version offers most of the must-have features, while the paid version comes with all the bells and whistles. Another interesting application in the segment is the Niagara Launcher, which has made a name for itself in a relatively short time. It came out of beta in 2021 but quickly became a fan favorite, thanks to its minimalist look.

The penultimate launcher on this list is the Hyperion Launcher, which comes from the team behind the popular Substratum theme engine and offers a clean and uncluttered Pixel launcher-like experience. It is highly customizable and offers most of its features for free. However, custom gestures and a few other features for power users can only be unlocked with the paid version. Finally, there’s Lawnchair 2, which is another great launcher for people looking for a standard Android experience. However, it does not support gesture navigation, which might be a deal breaker for some.

The Play Store is filled with third-party launcher apps designed for specific use cases. Some even allow users to change the appearance of a device to emulate devices from other brands. One such launcher is the Microsoft Launcher, which comes with a customizable newsfeed and a plethora of features for users who often connect their Android device to their Windows PC. There is even a launcher for android users who really want an iPhone ? Launcher iOS 15 mimics Apple’s iOS 15, down to the lock screen, control center, animations, wallpapers, and widgets.

Its partnership with Tik Tok, the Cannes film festival took an unexpected turn this year. That of a certain revival, of a rejuvenation of its public in any case. Decried by certain purists, die-hard cinephiles, this rapprochement had nevertheless been brewing for several years between the Grand-messe du Seventh Art and social networks, which have become weapons of mass promotion for film distributors and essential communication tools for brands that surf on the aura of the event. But also new distribution media for works in their own right.

Of all the climbs of the steps, of each evening, “influencers” assumed or “creators of content” worked were more than ever present this year, until the presentation of the Palme d’Or this Saturday evening. A week ago, it was precisely the prizes for the brand new #TikTokShortfilm competition that were awarded to new generation filmmakers for short films to be consumed exclusively on smartphones.

?A new visual grammar? for courts

A vertical format which “makes it possible to free oneself from the weight of all these decades horizontally and therefore to reinvent a whole new visual grammar”, boasted during the unveiling of the prize list the French director Camille Ducellier, one of the members of the jury. . She sat in particular alongside the star of the social network Khaby Lame and the Franco-Cambodian filmmaker Rithy Panh, president, who resigned in the face of “pressure” from TikTok for the choice of the winners, then finally again president.

Omnipresent on the Croisette, the Chinese network was not alone. Instagram has also imposed its own “content creators”, whether or not they have (most often) a direct relationship with the cinema, in the wake of the event. Last week, the app had taken up residence a few kilometers from the red carpets, in Théoule-sur-Mer, at the Palais Bulles, Pierre Cardin’s iconic second home, where it had brought together nearly 600 of its “stars” confirmed or to become.

The red carpets rolled out under the footsteps of these influencer-creators

On the program over two days, cocktails, DJs, and “reels”, one of Instagram’s formats, galore. ?Our presence makes sense. The Cannes Film Festival are actors with whom we work very closely all year round, explained Edouard Braud, director of Meta creative partnerships for the continental Europe region, on the spot. The actors share their filming experiences. The entire luxury and fashion ecosystem uses the platform for its communication. And many of our creators work with them. Normal, therefore, that the two worlds meet in situ.

And the red carpets have been largely rolled out under the footsteps of these influencer-creators. Not an evening without a star of the networks being invited to pose in the photocalls. The volume of invitations being often and logically proportional to the number of subscribers. Just like business opportunities. ?The schedule changes quickly in Cannes. The collaborations are concluded directly on site. I was only supposed to stay two days. I was seen in story and I was asked to extend my stay, ?explained last Thursday, Frederico Stauffer, fredstauffer on the networks, known for his very elaborate formats.

Questioned by AFP, the teacher-researcher in economics at Inseec, Julien Pillot estimated at the beginning of May that Cannes ?needed to modernize? by ?affecting a new generation?. The bet is undoubtedly successful via these new media. Several hundred thousand publications accompanied by the hashtag #festivaldecannes were listed on Saturday evening on Instagram and TikTok.

Journal Reference:

  1. Alexander S. Blum, Andrés Martínez de Velasco. The genesis of the CPT theorem. The European Physical Journal H, 2022; 47 (1) DOI: 10.1140/epjh/s13129-022-00037-w

A new paper published in EPJ H and authored by Alexander S. Blum and Andres Mart?nez de Velasco from Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, looks at the roots of CPT theorem and its influence over modern physics.

?CPT theorem is the statement that nothing would change? ? ?nobody would notice and the predictions of physics would not be altered? ? ?if we simultaneously replace particles by antiparticles and vice versa,? Blum says. ?Replace everything by its mirror image or more exactly: exchange left and right, up and down, and front and back, and reverse the flow of time. We call this simultaneous transformation CPT, where C stands for Charge Conjugation (exchanging particles and antiparticles), P stands for parity (mirroring), and T stands for time reversal.?

Blum adds that in the story told over the course of the paper is that CPT theorem only became really important a couple of years after its discovery.

Journal Reference:

  1. Alexander S. Blum, Andrés Martínez de Velasco. The genesis of the CPT theorem. The European Physical Journal H, 2022; 47 (1) DOI: 10.1140/epjh/s13129-022-00037-w

A new paper published in EPJ H and authored by Alexander S. Blum and Andres Mart?nez de Velasco from Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, looks at the roots of CPT theorem and its influence over modern physics.

?CPT theorem is the statement that nothing would change? ? ?nobody would notice and the predictions of physics would not be altered? ? ?if we simultaneously replace particles by antiparticles and vice versa,? Blum says. ?Replace everything by its mirror image or more exactly: exchange left and right, up and down, and front and back, and reverse the flow of time. We call this simultaneous transformation CPT, where C stands for Charge Conjugation (exchanging particles and antiparticles), P stands for parity (mirroring), and T stands for time reversal.?

Blum adds that in the story told over the course of the paper is that CPT theorem only became really important a couple of years after its discovery.

?Originally, physicists had (tacitly) believed that nothing would change even if we do one of the three transformations mentioned above individually,? the researcher says. ?In 1957, it was found that we can actually distinguish the world from its mirror image. In particular certain radioactive decays actually distinguish left from right. In time, it was found that, indeed, all three of the transformations individually actually produce noticeable differences.?

Blum concludes by explaining that the time is right for a review of CPT theorem because young researchers are becoming proficient both in historical and philosophical analysis and in the mathematical intricacies of post-WWII physics.

Blum?s research group, hosted both by the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics, is now establishing itself as a centre for this kind of training emphasising the importance of the CPT theorem for a new generation of physicists.

Smoking, the leading cause of cancer in the world, is a considerable risk factor for the disease, mainly lung cancer. Tobacco smoke would in particular cause mutations in lung cells ? which multiply abnormally during the formation of tumors. The risk would be multiplied by 10 or 15 for smokers (compared to non-smokers), but paradoxically, many ?heavy smokers? never develop cancer. Only a minority of smokers contract the disease: a real mystery for scientists. A new study published in the journal Nature Genetics suggests that this difference is linked to complex genetic factors, which some smokers are endowed with, and which protect against carcinogenic mutations.

Tobacco smoke can cause various harmful effects on lung cells. In the case of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), for example, it irreversibly damages the progenitor cells of the lungs, preventing the renewal of the destroyed functional cells. In the case of tumor formation however, these cells renew and multiply excessively.

There are several forms of lung cancer. The most common tumors (80 to 85% of cases) are those called “Non-small cell” (referring to the size of the tumor cells). They can form in the gland cells in the outer parts of the lungs. In this specific case, it is an adenocarcinoma.

In the same category is also squamous cell carcinoma, which usually develops in the cells of the bronchi and bronchioles, in the central parts of the lungs. There is also what is called large cell carcinoma, which can start in any area of ??the lungs. Other, rarer and no less serious forms of lung cancer include: (small cell lung cancer), soft tissue sarcoma, carcinoid, pleural mesothelioma.

Previous studies assumed that the excessive multiplication of lung cells during tumor formation was due to tobacco smoke-induced DNA mutations in healthy cells. The new study, conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (New York, USA) is the first to precisely quantify this mutation rate, thanks to a revolutionary and improved sequencing technique of the whole genomes of individual cells. .

Thanks to this new technique, researchers may have finally discovered why not all smokers develop cancer, and especially why many heavy smokers never develop the disease. The results could lead to new, more efficient and more targeted diagnostic methods, helping to identify smokers who face an increased risk of contracting the disease and who require particularly close monitoring.

This may prove to be an important step towards the prevention and early detection of lung cancer risk and a far cry from the current Herculean efforts needed to tackle late-stage disease, where the majority of healthcare spending occurs. », valued Simon Spivack, study co-lead author and professor of medicine, population epidemiology and health, and genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

A more accurate sequencing method

To quantify mutations in lung cells, the New York researchers developed a sequencing technique called single-cell multiple displacement amplification (SCMDA). Typical single-cell, whole-genome sequencing methods are notably quite limited in that errors can occur that make true mutations difficult to identify. The new technique reduces margins of error and better detects rare and random mutations.

The mutational landscapes of the proximal bronchial basal cells of 33 individuals were then compared. 14 of them have never smoked and are aged 11 to 86, while the other 19, aged 44 to 81, have a maximum “smoking history” of 116 pack-years (PA) ? 1 PA is equivalent to 1 pack of cigarettes smoked per day for one year. To give a concrete example, a person who has smoked 40 cigarettes a day for 40 years will have an AP of 2 (2 packets) x 40 = 80 AP.

Participants’ cells were removed by bronchoscopy. Proximal bronchial basal cells can survive for years or even decades and accumulate mutations with age that may be related to smoking. Moreover, of all the types of lung cells, they are among the most likely to become cancerous.

Results

The researchers’ first discovery was the accumulation of mutations in the lung cells of non-smokers. These mutations would accumulate with age and would be more numerous in smokers. ” This experimentally confirms that smoking increases the risk of lung cancer by increasing the frequency of mutations, as previously assumed. says Spivack. Moreover, the number of cellular mutations detected increases linearly with the number of packet-years.

However, the increase in mutations seems to level off and stop after 23 packet-years. The heaviest smokers apparently and implausibly did not have the highest mutation rates. The researchers suggest that these people would have succeeded in suppressing the accumulation of mutations, because they would have very powerful systems for repairing DNA damage and detoxifying cigarette smoke. Soon, thanks to these discoveries, the group plans to develop new tests to measure a person’s ability to repair and detoxify their DNA.

What was the role of fire in the Magdalenian culture, one of the longest in prehistory? This ends with the end of the glaciation 12,000 years ago. With the Magdalenians then disappears the society of the great nomadic hunter-gatherer-gatherers of the Ice Age. A society that practiced all kinds of art, ranging from the famous cave paintings to the most discreet engravings on stone tablets, or engraved plaques.

“We found hundreds of them in Périgord and more than a thousand in the cave of Enlčne, in Aričge”, reports Gilles Tosello, doctor of prehistory and visual artist, author of a thesis entitled: “Movable art on a lithic support in the Magdalenian Périgord: emergence, originality and diffusion?. 54 of these plaques, dated nearly 15,000 years ago, are now preserved in the British Museum from London. They come from the cave of Montastruc, in the center of the French Pyrenees, and show traces of burns in places. Researchers from York and Durham have analyzed them using numerous digital tools: modeling, improved color rendering, virtual reality… Their goal? Highlight the potential role of fire on the engraved images of these plates?

Engraved plaque found in the shelter of the Madeleine, in the Dordogne. There are notably a lynx and a human leg.

Fire and Magdalenian engraved plaques: what link?

First hypothesis put forward in this new study: Magdalenian artists must have worked by firelight. Why ? Simply because of their busy schedule during the day. ?It is a vision centered on the way of life of the 21e century, which has nothing to do with that of our ancestors”, criticizes Gilles Tosello. Moreover, the light provided by the flames was not to be sufficient for such work. It would thus have been impossible for them to make engravings as fine as those observed on these plates. Some drawings measuring no more than 2 centimeters long!

Second hypothesis: the interaction of the moving fire and the engraved plates would have given dynamism to the figures… and a semblance of life! Indeed, the neurology of the Magdalenians was substantially the same as ours. In other words, these individuals must also have experienced the phenomenon of pareidolia. That is, the identification of familiar shapes from shifting shadows. ?This idea is already old. Such animations could have been used during rites or ceremonies,? says Marc Azéma, doctor in prehistory and director. But the result required that these animations be well perceptible and interpretable as such by the human brain, that is to say that the principle of retinal persistence allows the members of the animals represented to be superimposed in the mind of the ‘observer. However, the plates have dimensions that are far too small to obtain a striking effect.

Theoretical ?scenario? of the engraving cycle.  A blank plate (1) is engraved with a reindeer (2) before being exposed to fire (4).  The intense heat causes the soft limestone to redden and burst (5).  A piece is recovered to inscribe a horse's head (6), then returns to the hearth (8) and breaks up (9).  When the fragments become too small to engrave, the cycle stops.

image and movement

So what does the use of digital technology bring to the study of Magdalenian portable art? ?The complex processes employed have not yielded truly striking results. The methods are topical but we are still at the very beginning?, emphasizes Marc Azéma. Especially since in order to obtain movement, it is not necessary to rely on the glow of the fire. “These populations had a very advanced mastery of illustration, with ingenious graphic processes”, insists the director. An animal could for example be represented running by its posture or the repetition of its limbs, for an effective layering effect.

Of the 300,000 years of existence of Sapiens, the image appears to have appeared only about 40,000 years ago. A recent acquisition therefore, but which has been perpetuated until today. “Representation by image must have provided a vital advantage to populations, at a time when everything around them was thought of as animated”, suggests Gilles Tosello.

On the plates of Périgord are then mainly engraved reindeer and injured or even dying horses. their favorite prey. ?These figurative animals were then plunged into the flames of the hearth. It is difficult not to see a link between the destruction by fire and the death given during the hunt, ?suggests Gilles Tosello. Known for almost 150 years, the engraved plaques of the Magdalenians are still a mystery. What was their role? And above all, what meaning did they have in the eyes of their creators? Questions that still remain unanswered…

VIENNA, May 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ ? Huawei held its annual Global Internet Service Industry Summit in Vienna. To align with Europe’s all-optical network strategy of environmental friendliness, intelligence and digital transformation, Huawei has launched new products and solutions, including NetEngine 8000 M4, OTN P2MP private line and Fiber to The Room (FTTR). The summit, which was attended by business leaders, partners and think tanks from around the world, also featured discussions on the all-optics trend in theEurope and managed services transformation, to create new value together.

Huang Dachuan, CTO of Huawei Enterprise Business, delivered a speech at the opening ceremony of the summit

Green, all-optical, intelligent connections have become a key growth area for the Internet Service Industry (ISI). During his speech of the opening ceremony, Huang Dachuan, CTO of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said that the ISI industry has three trends: Internet connection technologies are moving towards all-optical, Internet connection architecture is developing towards software definition and more intelligence, and Internet services are becoming more intelligent and diverse. He reaffirmed the mission of Huawei’s providing intelligent, all-optical Internet solutions and services to support the smooth evolution of ICT architecture, as well as the business success of Internet Service Provider (ISP) customers.

The summits also showcased the latest trends in Huawei’s optical technologies. Mr. Maxim Kuschnerov, Director of the Huawei Optical and Quantum Communications Laboratory at Munich, considered the evolution of optical technologies from five dimensions: Clutter Free, Always On, Scalable, Simplified, and Intelligent. He also shared the evolution trend and prediction of 50G PON, the latest generation of transport access technology.

Arturs Alksnis, Public Affairs Director of the FTTH Council Europe, Richard Millerdirector of business development at Huawei, and Jonas Emilssonco-founder of Glecom in Sweden, were among the other keynote speakers.

After the summit, Huawei also shared its vision at the FTTH Conference 2022, one of the world’s largest fiber summits, on May 25. In his speech, Kevin Liu, Senior Vice President of Sales and Channels, Huawei, emphasized that ISPs can achieve sustainable growth by seizing the next three broadband strategic opportunities. First, the construction of optical networks for broadband connection is accelerating; second, the evolution from outdoor FTTH to indoor FTTR provides a high-quality ubiquitous Wi-Fi network experience; third, high-quality FTTR broadband in the home is the basis of smart homes and various applications.

For this opportunity, Huawei presents Green Intelligent OptiX Network: green architecture, green site and green operation. “With this target network solution, we can drive the ICT industry towards ‘more bits, less watts’ and emissions reduction goals,” says Kevin Liusenior vice president of sales and channels of Huawei, during the speech before the panel.
