Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

Using a centrifuge, it is possible to separate blood into three main fractions. 
Although we are used to thinking of blood as a simple fluid, it is in fact a suspension of cells, debris and more within a carrier fluid. 
The uppermost and clear yellow layer pictured is that fluid: plasma. This is the majority of what makes up human blood - plasma constitutes about 55% of its volume - of which 95% by volume is pure water. 
The central layer of opaque white is known as the buffy coat. This fraction is comprised mainly of white blood cells and platelets. 
Finally, the lowermost fraction is made up of the all-important red blood cells; erythrocytes. These cells are responsible for oxygen’s transit around the body, and give blood its striking colour.

I can’t think of any reason why someone would not reblog this. 
If this isn’t interesting/sad to you, then I don’t know what you like in life.

Can’t we hit 1,000,000 notes? This is such a rare shot, everyone should see it.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.

Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Act: ‘Null and Void’

In a victory activists were unsure they’d get, Uganda’s Constitutional Court overturned the country’s draconian Anti-Homosexuality Act today, declaring the anti-LGBT law “null and void” because of a parliamentary technicality in how it was passed.  

The court determined that when members of Parliament passed the law in December 2013, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga had not established quorum — a required minimum number of members present to vote — effectively invalidating the law. 

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DIRECT LIFE-SAVING ACTION SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED BY UGANDAN QUEER ACTIVISTS!!!!!!!!!! FUCKING HEROIC AND LEGENDARY!!!!!!!!!!! THERE’S NOT ENOUGH EXCLAMATION POINTS IN THE WORLD FOR HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!!!
