New State Of Matter Is Here…

The Jahn–Teller effect, sometimes also known as Jahn–Teller distortion, describes the geometrical distortion of molecules and ions that is associated with certain electron configurations.

How many states of matter do you know about? It’s not just solids, liquids, gases, and maybe plasmas that we have to think about when we talk about the states of matter. Beyond these there’s an entire catalogue of matter alternatives: Bose–Einstein condensate, degenerate matter, supersolids/superfluids, quark-gluon plasma, etc. The difference is that all those alternatives are lab-created and don’t have much place out in the real world of nature. Researchers at Japan’s Tohoku University came up with an entirely new state of matter with an unusual combination of properties—insulator, superconductor, metal, magnet. The team, led by Kosmas Prassides, says they’ve created what’s called a Jahn-Teller metal by doping rubidium, a strange alkali metal element, into buckyballs, a pure carbon structure which has a spherical shape from a series of interlocking polygons.

Is Fashion Jewellery poisonous???

Low-cost jewellery made with cadmium, a heavy metal that can be particularly toxic for kids.

Beware all!!! especially  people who buy low-cost jewelry from popular fashion chains. New research has found toxic levels of cadmium, a heavy metal that can be particularly toxic for kids. Simply wearing jewelry does not cause harm, but sucking, chewing on or swallowing it can cause many harmful effects to children’s bodies, including death. Also Children’s bodies more readily absorb the toxic metal.  Cadmium is a known carcinogen, which can lead to kidney failure, bone loss and other complications in those who are chronically exposed over time.

Six Degrees Of Separation

six degrees of separation

Six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. The theory was first proposed in 1929 by the Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy in a short story called “Chains.”Most people have heard of the “six degrees of separation” theory — the idea that everyone in the world is separated from everyone else by six links. Is it a myth or a fact of life? Continue reading “Six Degrees Of Separation”
