A 2-3 fold increase in heatwave activity since the late 1800s is found in the Central England Temperature record. A 2-3 fold increase in heatwave activity since the late 1800s is found in the Central England Temperature record. Crossing theory provides estimates of average heatwave properties from the observed cdf. These are plotted versus time in years, where a heatwave is defined as consecutive days with maximum summer daily temperatures above a threshold. For heatwaves at a threshold of 28 C, the UK threshold for building overheating, we see a 2-3 fold decrease in the return period of a 6 day long heawave (panel a) and a 2-3 fold increase in the duration of a heatwave with an average 5 year return period (panel b). The temperature threshold of a 6 day long heatwave with 5 year return period has increased, from being typically below 28C to typically above it (panel c).

Nuclei Overlap The purple stain for cancer cell nuclei overlaps perfectly with the emission of green light from the iridium-albumin conjugate, showing the protein has delivered the photosensitiser to the nucleus of cancer cells.
Nuclei Overlap Iridium with its organic coat which is hooked up to the protein albumin (HSA). Together that enter cancer cells and deliver the iridium photosensitiser to the nucleus. On irradiation with blue light, the iridium not only glows green, but converts oxygen in the cell to a toxic form called triplet oxygen, which kills the cell.

The results from Professor Feng Jianfeng 's study The left picture is a three-dimensional spatial distribution of the association between a risk gene mutation site and the volume of gray matter in schizophrenia; the deeper the red, the higher the statistical significance, followed by yellow and green, and the lowest statistical significance is blue. The right image is the most prominent Manhattan map showing the correlation between gray matter volume in the brain area (putamen) and genome-wide variation sites. The results were arranged according to chromosome number. schizophrenia
