Bright cells, big city: Cellular images hit Broadway

Surprise email from Conor McKechnie, GE Healthcare proving the aesthetics of science and the value of blogging:

A while (!) back you posted an inspiring piece linking to Harvard’s BioVisions inner life of the cell – it was 2006…It got me thinking that we could do something similarly inspiring with actual cellular images entered into our annual cellular analysis image competition. It took 2 years to make it happen, but finally:
We have just posted a social media release highlighting the winners’ images being shown on the jumbotron in Times Square, with a short narrated film about the images and what they could mean for medical research, posted on YouTube:

Video interviews with the winners in Times Square on YouTube:

Short listed entries on a public site to inspire and encourage people to share in the beauty of science.

I hope you enjoy the links – and thanks for being the initial spark of inspiration.

regards

Conor

  1. Journaled filesystems were of course the earlier fad. In this mechanism a copy of any metadata and sometimes data that is to be modified is kept in a journal, a fixed area of the disk or another disk, that logs each modification. In this mechanism the journal is replayed on reboot and the filesystem is left in a consistent state. The problem with journaling is either it’s very simple and uses a tremendous amount of space and I/O with a strict transaction model that prevents some concurrency, or it becomes incredibly complex, to the tune of over 20,000 lines of code in xfs. Still I have questions about concurrency when multiple transactions affect a block in xfs, but I need to dig deeper to understand this.

  2. As millions of people who want to lose weight, but youDid he can not succeed in a kind of worry about your weight yanıyorsunuz more? You might think, and this process will be much easier to lose weight in a healthy way to get over … Now a much more difficult as it used to have a nice view, but you have to do is that you want to attenuation.
