Team Server - Collaborate with Pleasure! Ajax Development with IntelliJ IDEA
on: Google TechTalks
The first presentation is completely dedicated to our new product Team Server, which has to bring to the whole team the same level of productivity as IDEA does for the individual developer. We will talk about continuous integration, server-side code analysis, peer-to-peer collaboration, and many other interesting things. The second presentation is dedicated to a lot of new and cool stuff in IntelliJ IDEA 6.0 related to Java.

Edward Goldwyn

Interview
on: The Vega Science Trust
Fred Sanger is often considered the father of modern biology, and is one of the few people to have been awarded two Nobel prizes. Working in Cambridge he developed a new chromatographic method fo determining amino-acid end-groups. His new chromatographic results on the free amino groups of insulin were published in 1945 and the complete sequence of insulin in 1955.

Replikin genome sequences and survival rates in shrimp and human pandemics
on: Replikins Ltd.
Dr. Bogoch spoke at the World Aquaculture Conference in San Antonio, giving some background on his company's Replikins technology and announcing test results in conjunction with the University of Arizona. These results correlate virulence of four Taura virus strains in shrimp with the concentration of Replikin subsequences in the virus genomes. This is the first virus protein structure to have been shown to be quantitatively relate not only to the occurrence of epidemics, but now specifically to mortality rate of the host.

Peter Seibel

Practical Common Lisp
on: Google Video
In the late 1920's linguists Edward Sapir and Benjamin Whorf hypothesized that the thoughts we can think are largely determined by the language we speak. In his essay 'Beating the Averages' Paul Graham echoed this notion and invented a hypothetical language, Blub, to explain why it is so hard for programmers to appreciate programming language features that aren't present in their own favorite language. Does the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis hold for computer languages? Peter Seibel, language lawyer (admitted, at various times, to the Perl, Java, and Common Lisp bars) and author of the award-winning book _Practical Common Lisp_, will discuss how our choices of programming language influences and shapes our pattern languages and the architectures we can, or are likely to, invent.

Exploring New States of Matter in the p-Orbital Bands of Optical Lattices
on: Kavli Institute
In this talk, we will present new features of orbital physics in the p-orbital bands with bosons and fermions, which are not usually realized in solid state systems. These include quantum stripe ordering of orbital angular momentum moments in the triangular lattice, Wigner crystallization of neutral atoms in the flat band of the honeycomb lattice, and frustrated superfluidity with time-reversal symmetry breaking in the double-well lattice. Signatures of these new states in the time of flight experiments will be discussed.

The New CO2 incubators with hot air sterilization
on: Biocompare
Our CO2 incubators simulate natural conditions, where many perfect details make up the sum total. We also fuse together the details by amalgamating the growth parameters such as CO2, temperature and humidity into a finely tuned interaction that we call natural simulation. This is a process that we have developed and patented, unparalleled in our industry and the closest thing to natural conditions.

The NLS-II Project; 418th Brookhaven Lecture
on: Brookhaven National Laboratory
The NSLS-II project will establish a third-generation light source at Brookhaven Lab, increasing beam-line brightness by 10,000. Achieving and maintaining this will involve tightly focusing the electron beam, providing the most efficient insertion devices, and achieving and maintaining a high electron current. In this talk, the various sub-systems of NSLS-II will be reviewed, and the requirements and key elements of their design will be discussed. In addition, the a small prototype of a light source of a different kind that was developed by the NSLS will also be discussed.
