    Abstract: This collection of nine essays provides an entertaining and thoughtful glimpse into trending topics in our lives. The author, Dr. Akula, tackles questions on life, science, and society from a biologist’s perspective. The book covers a broad range of topics, including common questions with complex answers intermixed with some religion and humor, making it a great read to give your brain cells a boost. The field of Science is massive - in fact, it’s the size of the universe, which means picking just a few topics to discuss is no mean feat. This book is a start, but there is more to come as Dr. Akula explores various subjects to discuss and shed new light on. This collection of essays will appeal to scientists, and to lay readers with an interest in the natural sciences. Its goal is to ensure that science isn’t accessible to only a few people, but is instead disseminated to many. After all, a Smart World is the key to a Better Tomorrow and a Brighter Future

    Notes: Summary A conspicuous feature of freeze-dried cryosections of male Schistosoma mansoni is the presence of groups of electron-dense granules. X-ray analysis in the TEM of these granules shows them, in comparison with the adjacent cytoplasm, to contain significantly greater amounts of sodium and calcium. In glutaraldehyde-fixed material, these granules have been correlated with the membrane-bounded, electron-dense granules found within the axons of the peripheral nervous system.

    Notes: Summary One hundred and two patients who underwent supratentorial procedures for neurosurgical conditions, which are known to carry a high incidence of postoperative seizures, have been given prophylactic anticonvulsant medication. This preliminary analysis has failed to demonstrate any dramatic effect on the postoperative incidence of seizures in the first six months as the result of this policy. There has been a high incidence of serious side effects, but compliance has not been a major problem. This long-term study is continuing, though with a modified protocol.

    Notes: Summary The risk of developing postoperative seizures decreases with the passage of time after surgery. In the majority of cases it has fallen to less than 10% by six months but in some specific groups this risk is not reached until much later. Patients who had abscesses were however the only group with a continuing risk after five years. Late epilepsy occurred in 41% of patients suffering early epilepsy. The question of prophylactic anticonvulsant drugs is discussed.

    Notes: Summary One hundred and twenty cases of malignant extradural spinal compression have been reviewed. It is essential to treat such patients early whilst their neurological defects are minimal. When useful function has been lost, it is rarely regained postoperatively, irrespective of the rate of onset, and particularly if the duration of the fixed deficit exceeds 24 hours.

    Notes: Abstract We studied the sharkskin melt fracture phenomena of polybutadiene (PBD), which exhibits similar flow properties and instabilities to linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). The advantages of using PBD are that it exhibits larger distortions and slower development due to its high viscosity. By using a video camera with close-up lenses focused at the die exit, we observed the development of sharkskin in profile. It was shown that the sharkskin melt fracture develops with the cohesive failure at the die exit due to a peeling of surface layers as described by Howell and Benbow (1962). Oddly enough, this mechanism is similar to that proposed by Ovaici et al. (1998) for the extrusion of chocolate. A soap solution coating around the die exit to induce a slippery interface eliminated the sharkskin fracture, similar in the effect of fluoro-elastomer coating with LLDPE. Based on our visual observations, we qualitatively modeled the sharkskin fracture by modifying Cogswell‘s (1977) idea on exit stretching at the die exit and the force balance of Ovaici et al. on the ring formation of the chocolate extrusion.

    Notes: Abstract A series of trials from 1981–85 investigating the amount of damage caused by larvae of the turnip root flyDelia floralis (Fallen) to cultivars of Swedish turnipBrassica Napus (L.) of varying percentages of dry matter indicated that those of high dry matter were damaged less than low dry matter cultivars. Pupal numbers of turnip root fly gave good correlations with damage but there was no relationship between damage and cabbage root fly pupae.

    Notes: Abstract The solar X-ray emission spectrum between 1 and 55 Å has been studied for one solar event, using the two X-ray experiments on-board of the ESRO 2 satellite. Although this event fits the description of the class of X-ray events described as gradual rise and fall events there is evidence to show that it is caused by the superposition of a number of events, of which the largest one was correlated with the appearance of an active loop-like prominence on the East limb of the Sun. By assuming the radiation processes in the source region to be thermal, temperatures and emission measures against time for the source region have been derived using the most recent models for free-free continuum and line emission due to thermal plasmas. The temperatures derived have been used to calculate cooling rates due to radiation losses. It is shown from data in the 2.2–3.0 Å band that the cooling rate of the excited corona associated with the prominence is compatible with an electron density of 1 × 1011 cm−3 if a single injection of particles is considered to occur in the corona. From data in the 5.8–8.8 Å band one finds a value of 2 × 1010 cm−3. An estimate of the total injected energy is made.
