NOVA PBS: Nikon Small World 2021 Photo Competition winners announced

From neurons to tick heads to louse claws, here are the top 10 images from the competition.

The winners of the Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition, which aims to showcase “the beauty and complexity of life as seen through the light microscope,” were announced today.

This is the 47th year of the photo competition, which is open to anyone with an interest in microscopy—the use of microscopes to view samples and objects—and photography. This year the contest received almost 1,900 entries from 88 countries. A panel of five judges* evaluated the entries for originality, informational content, technical proficiency, and visual impact, Nikon reported. The results of the sister video competition, Small World In Motion, were announced last month.

Here are this year’s top 10 images:

A southern live oak leaf’s trichomes, stomata, and vessels photographed by Jason Kirk, a professional imager and core director of Baylor College of Medicine’s Optical Imaging & Vital Microscopy Core. Kirk used a custom-made microscope system to take around 200 individual images of the leaf, which he stacked together to create this image, Nikon reports.

Trichomes, stomata, and vessels are all “essential to plant life,” Nikon writes. Trichomes, fine outgrowths that protect a plant from extreme weather and insects, are featured in white. “In purple, Jason highlights the stomata, small pores that regulate the flow of gases in a plant. Colored in cyan are the vessels that transport water throughout the leaf,” Nikon said in a statement.

  1. Networking neurons in microfluidic device

This image is of a microfluidic device, which contains 300,000 networking neurons divided into two isolated populations (left and right) bridged by axons (center). The isolated populations were each treated with a unique virus, Nikon reports. The image was taken at 40X magnification by Esmeralda Paric and Holly Stefen of Macquarie University’s Dementia Research Centre in New South Wales, Australia, using fluorescence imaging, which uses high-intensity illumination to excite fluorescent molecules in a sample. “When a molecule absorbs photons, electrons are excited to a higher energy level,” Nikon writes. “As electrons ‘relax’ back to the ground-state, vibrational energy is lost and, as a result, the emission spectrum is shifted to longer wavelengths.”

A rear leg, claw, and respiratory trachea of a louse, a wingless parasitic insect, at 5X magnification taken by Frank Reiser, a biologist at Nassau Community College in New York. Reiser used darkfield micrography, which “creates contrast in transparent unstained specimens” and “depends on controlling specimen illumination so that central light which normally passes through and around the specimen is blocked,” Nikon writes, and image stacking to produce this image.

COVID-19 is linked to new diabetes cases—but long-term problems could be more severe

In addition to driving new cases of diabetes, the virus may be directly damaging the pancreas in ways that could lead to chronic inflammation and even cancer.

BYAMY MCKEEVER

PUBLISHED OCTOBER 8, 2021

Almost daily microbiologist Peter Jackson receives emails from people who recovered from COVID-19 only to discover that their health troubles have just begun.

Recently, a mother of two in her 30s wrote to the Stanford University professor to say that she now takes a slew of diabetes medications every day—even though she hadn’t been at risk for the disease before her coronavirus infection.

Experts have known since the beginning of the pandemic that having diabetes—a condition when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or use it well enough to counteract a rise in blood sugar—is a risk factor for more severe COVID-19 infections. But they have also long suspected that the inverse might be true as well. In May, Jackson published a study in the journal Cell Metabolism showing that SARS-CoV-2 infects cells in the pancreas that produce insulin and may even target and destroy them—suggesting that the virus may also cause diabetes. (Why scientists began investigating the link between COVID-19 and diabetes.)

“This is a real thing,” Jackson says of the complaints from newly diabetic people that have flooded his inbox. Although some experts argue that the condition is rare, Jackson says the data suggests that in 2020 as many as 100,000 people were diagnosed with an unexpected case of diabetes.

He is one of many scientists who worry there could be a new wave of diabetes patients who will have to monitor their blood sugar levels for the rest of their lives. But he and his colleagues are also concerned that the virus may be harming the pancreas in ways that may not be visible now but could one day have troubling implications for the organ itself and for the rest of the digestive system.

“This could be a pandemic in a pandemic,” says Paolo Fiorina, a professor of endocrinology at the University of Milan and lecturer at Harvard Medical School, who has also spearheaded investigations into the connection between COVID-19 and diabetes.

Great apes – How intelligent are our closest relatives? | DW Documentary

Oct 7, 2021  DW Documentary

What can animals’ emotions tell us about ourselves? This documentary takes us on a fascinating journey into the lives of the great apes. Did you know that chimpanzees wage war? Not only that, but they also show compassion, engage in cooperative behavior, and value fairness and reciprocity. Chimpanzees reconcile after fights, and comfort each other. Chimpanzee communities also have customs and traditions that vary from tribe to tribe. All this begs the question: are things like morality and culture solely human achievements? This documentary takes us into one of the last great wildernesses of West Africa – the mountainous jungles of Nigeria – and shows footage of chimpanzees in the wild. What is the significance of the mysterious stone piles left by chimpanzees near trees or in hollows? Are they a form of religion? How intelligent are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom? In what kinds of societies did our common ancestors live? And where does the phenomenon of xenophobia come from? #documentary #freedocumentary #chimpanzees ______

Can viruses be beneficial? | DW Documentary

Aug 7, 2021  DW Documentary

Viruses can be fatal, but some viruses can in fact be life-sustaining. The SARS-CoV-2 virus has killed large numbers of people during the current pandemic. But humans wouldn’t exist without viruses. How can they benefit us? Viruses aren’t living beings, yet they have had a great influence on evolution. Some viral elements have embedded themselves into the human genome and reproduce along with us – so-called endogenous retroviruses. One type of virus helps form the placenta, for example, while other viruses attack harmful bacteria. Viruses also maintain balance in marine ecosystems, curbing the growth of algae and attacking bacteria that are harmful to sea animals. Soon, viruses may even replace antibiotics in fish farming. Thousands of viruses have already been sequenced, including Ebola, Zika and bird flu. Ebola is one of the deadliest viruses in the world, with a mortality rate of up to 90%. But experts see greater danger in the less deadly diseases like Spanish flu and COVID-19: Because they spread much further, they kill more people overall. Viruses can also be used to create vaccines. In Rome, the shell of a virus found in gorilla feces has been used as a vector for the COVID-19 vaccine, turning a pathogen into a life-saving drug. __

Extreme weather, rising sea levels, devastating floods – The global climate crisis | DW Documentary

Oct 5, 2021  DW Documentary

Extreme weather is occurring more frequently worldwide. Rising sea levels and heavy rain are causing devastating floods. Most researchers agree that these are the consequences of climate change. But what can we do to protect ourselves? In July 2021, the Ahr Valley in western Germany was hit by a flash flood after heavy rainfall. Over 100 people were killed, thousands of homes were severely damaged. Experts are calling it the ‘flood of the century’. Yet extreme weather events such as the Ahr Valley floods have become more frequent in recent years – not only in Germany but worldwide. Mozambique has been hit by devastating cyclones for the third year running. In Bangladesh, the monsoon season has become heavier and more unpredictable due to climate change. More and more land has been flooded as a result. At the same time, heavy storms that cause flooding and rising sea levels threaten the south of the country. Experts estimate that 30 per cent of Bangladesh will be permanently flooded in a few years, making millions of people climate refugees. Wealthy countries such as Germany are now investing billions in the battle against the floods. The Netherlands have long pioneered in flood management, building powerful pumping stations, ever higher dikes and flood barriers. None of these options are available to poor countries. All they can do, along with improving early flood warning systems, is to resettle the people affected. The film ‘Global Climate Crisis – How to Tackle the floods?’ shows the unequal fight against the consequences of climate change with examples from Germany, the Netherlands, Bangladesh, and Mozambique. #documentary #flooding #climatechange #extremeweather ______

National Geographic: Pride Month reads and Bare to the elements

Pride Month reads: Tales and memoirs by James BaldwinLucy Jane Bledsoe, and Samantha Allen are part of our 10 LBGTQ reads on travel adventures, part of our Around the World in Books series. The stories, writes Gillian Kendall for Nat Geo, “share both what unites us and what makes us unique, whether on an American heartland road trip or a bus journey to the tip of the world.” Also on the list: Andrew Sean Greer’s Less, a Pulitzer-winning novel about an aging writer who is jilted by a younger lover—and who travels the world with one shiny blue suit. Above, a Pride flags hangs in Antwerp, Belgium, in June 2013.

Bare to the elements: This image was taken in the Glencoe area of the Scottish Highlands. Houses like these have been endlessly romanticized in paintings and photographs: a lone cabin, bare to the elements, with nothing but nature as far as the eye can see, says photographer Michael George. “When I first saw this structure, with the tiny forest built to block some of the wind, I pulled my car over and spent some time wondering. Who lives there? With the harsh weather this area is known for, how is the structure still standing? Where do they get their groceries? I have no answers to these questions, but I like to imagine there is a basement as big as the house tucked underneath with supplies to get through the winter, a fire going, and a shelf of books to read.”

Vivid Photographs by Trung Huy Pham Capture Annual Water Lily Harvest in Vietnam

JUNE 26, 2020  GRACE EBERT

All images © Trung Huy Pham, shared with permission

Each year as the Mekong Delta floods, locals gather hordes of long-stemmed lilies from the water-covered rice fields. Photographer Trung Huy Pham recently captured the annual harvest in a vivid series taken in the Long An and An Giang provinces in Vietnam. He photographs the farmers wearing canonical hats as they collect the fast-growing flowers, which often are used as decoration and as additions to hot pots. The pink water lilies swirl in the water, forming an S-shape as their stems align.

Pham shares an incredibly diverse array of shots taken around Vietnam on Instagram.

Cell Division Time lapse

francischeefilms   Published on Mar 13, 2017

Time_lapse of cell division from second cleavage. The animal pole is clearly visible in the upper half of the image. A brief note about the image capture techniques: Hi I can say that it was done with a custom designed microscope based on the “infinity optical design” It is not available by any manufacturer. I built it. I used LEDs and relevant optics to light the egg. They too were custom designed by me. The whole microscope sits on anti-vibration table. I have to say that it doesn’t matter too much what microscope people use to perform this. There are countless other variables involved in performing this tricky shot, such as for example: the ambient temperature during shooting; the time at which the eggs were collected; the handling skills of the operator; the type of water used; lenses; quality of camera etc etc. Hope this helps.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thesecretsof… Twitter: https://twitter.com/NatureUniversum In Bohemia, at the very heart of Europe, south of the Golden City of Prague and guarded by medieval castles, lies a hidden mosaic of lakes and gently flowing rivers, of misty forests and mysterious peat bogs.This important wetland, shaped both by nature and centuries of influence by man, is a magnet for huge flocks of birds and home to an amazing diversity of plant and animal life. In spring there is an explosion of life as the trees are weighed down with nests of cormorants, egrets, herons and storks. With the arrival of winter the landscape becomes silent and desolate. Otters are hunting fish under the ice of frozen lakes while White-tailed Eagles soar over gaps in the ice, targeting fish and birds. Since his early childhood wildlife cinematographer Jiri Petr has spent much of his time in this wildlife paradise. Together with him, we will explore this remarkable habitat and observe the changing faces of nature during the course of one year that inspired many artists and writers alike.

Children and Animals Commune Within Neglected Landscapes in New Paintings by Kevin Peterson

February 28, 2019   Kate Sierzputowski

For several years artist Kevin Peterson (previously) has created paintings that occupy the same fictionalized world. His imagined environments are occupied by children and animals— individuals band together as they navigate depleted urban environments. The works pair the innocence of its subjects against a broken and crumbling world, addressing the various journeys we each take through life.

Recently, Peterson has begun to paint just the animals in these scenes, rather than pairing them exclusively with children. “In my head, it’s the same world,” the Houston-based painter tells Colossal, “the animals and kids just haven’t met up yet. Maybe they’re searching for each other.” His solo exhibition Wild opens at Thinkspace Projects in Culver City, California on March 2, 2019 and continues through March 23, 2019. You can see more of his paintings on his website and Instagram. (via booooooom)

An immersive journey into Japanese art

Between two screenings of ‘Van Gogh: Starry Night’, discover a short programme focusing on Japanese art.
‘Dreamed Japan, Images of the Floating World’ offers visitors a journey into the Japan of the collective imagination—the Japan of the geishas, samurai warriors, and spirits. This production was inspired by the Japanese prints that began to circulate in Europe in the second half of the nineteenth century, when trade opened up between the West and Japan.

The discovery of Japanese art had a profound effect on Western art: the painting of the Impressionists and the avant-garde artists, and also the decorative arts, music, and dance. Among them, van Gogh gave free reign to his interest in japonisme. In Paris, he studied and bought Japanese prints from the art dealer Siegfried Bing. The culture of the Land of the Rising Sun influenced the use of line and colour and composition in his works. In Provence, he told his brother Théo that ‘everything has become Japanese in the southern light’.

This production by the Danny Rose Studio, which highlights van Gogh’s fascination with Japan, is a contemplative and audio journey into the environment of the masters of Japanese prints.

The ephemeral beauty of the cherry blossoms is replaced by a magical and mysterious forest inhabited by the ‘yokai’, the spirits of Japanese folklore, and then by the sea: Hokusai’s iconic great wave submerges the Atelier des Lumières accompanied by music by Claude Debussy
The faces of the charming geishas, dressed in their kimonos decorated with elegant and colourful motifs, emerge from behind the rice paper screens as in nature, where everything is about contrasts; after all this ethereal beauty, visitors are captivated by a samurai warrior dance and eventually brought back down and carried away by the wind, among the lanterns floating in the night sky.

The Danny Rose Studio provides a glimpse of the great diversity, richness, and modernity of these works (the Japanese artistic movement known as ukiyo-e, which began in the seventeenth century and did not end until the nineteenth century) and their authors (some of whom are well known by the general public, such as Hokusai, and others less so, such as Kuniyoshi, Utamaro, Kunisada, etc.). The Danny Rose Studio also carried out considerable production and creative work in order to bring to life the imaginary Japan evoked by these works for visitors.

Particular attention was paid to the choice of music, from Ryuichi Sakamoto to Claude Debussy’s La Mer (‘The sea’), inspired by Hokusai’s Great Wave, and the incredibly fast rhythms of Japanese drumming.

Creative Studio Danny Rose

Danny Rose is a visual creation studio that creates and produces immersive audiovisual works, in various contexts such as architectural projection, interactive installations, museography, the theatre, music, the opera, and the animation of public spaces. The studio is a collective of multidisciplinary artists.

The Art of Japanese Funeral Floral Arrangements

October 3, 2018   Johnny Waldman

The farewell ceremony for actress Kirin Kiki took place on September 30, 2018 | Photo courtesy Sankei News

Last weekend, at the farewell ceremony for the late actress Kirin Kiki, a large display of white flowers, designed to look like a wave, greeted the constant flow of family members, fans and celebrities that had come to pay their respects, and to say farewell to the 75-year old who had passed away from cancer on September 15. The white wave of flowers was comprised of roughly 1200 chrysanthemums, orchids, and gypsophila (an ornamental flower known as baby’s-breath in the West).

Relatively speaking, the wave of flowers at Kiki’s farewell ceremony was actually quite modest, in accordance with her wishes for a simple gathering. Attempt to search the Internet for ???? (seikasaidan, which literally means fresh flower altar) and you’ll see any number of extravagant designs.

The company Ito Sogi has a online catalog of funeral floral altars you can choose from

The wave motif itself is actually a common one in Japan, alongside the mountain. Both are typically used for men because they symbolize strength, but the rules of the old guard are starting to come down. Even chrysanthemums, which used to be the only accepted flower, are now joined by other white flowers, sometimes even colorful ones. But the alter of plentiful flowers is relatively recent, having originated in Kyoto just 30 years ago. This would make sense though because the technology and logistics involved in procuring large batches of fresh flowers is also relatively recent.

Diagram explaining the 6 stages of the chrysanthemum blossoms, from the book Nippon no Seikasaidan

A lot of money is spent on funeral flowers in Japan. In fact, in 2006 Beauty Kadan became the first publicly traded Japanese company specializing in funeral flowers when it listed itself on the Mother’s section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Youkaen, a general flower company that entered the funeral flower business in 1972 now says that roughly 75% of their 50 billion yen in sales (roughly $44 mm USD) comes from their funeral flower segment.

Over the summer, Haruichi Mimura, the founder of funeral flower company Sunvillage, published a massive 480 page book detailing the intricacies of seikasaidan. It’s an extensive look at the details involved in created fresh flower alters: everything from history and tools to the types of flowers and designs. It’s available from Pie Books and also Amazon.
