Another bizarre organism, all lit up and attached to equipment in the Gulf of Mexico.
Getting Across: Aquatic Organisms and Road-Stream Crossings, General Overview - USDA Forest Service 2003 - Video VH-607B - Many culverts act as dams, or have water depths and flow velocities that otherwise block the passage of fish and other aquatic organisms. Not only does the health and diversity of the watershed depend on free passage upstream and downstream, but the Endangered Species and Clean Water Acts mandate free passage for aquatic species. This video explains why and how fixing culverts at road-stream crossings will restore habitats. This video provides a slightly more detailed, but still non-technical overview of aquatic organism passage at road-stream crossings, with more emphasis on solutions than the shorter introductory version (VH-607A). Emphasis is on the importance of culverts duplicating the natural stream, by matching the width, gradient and bottom characteristics as closely as possible to the existing stream. In addition to benefiting wildlife and habitat, the closer the culvert simulates the stream, the better the culvert will perform over its design life, causing less erosion, sedimentation and backwater effects during storm events.

"Alien Swords" are $5 each. They are generic right/left, they work on either side. I have miscasts up for $2.50 each (they still work, just need a little more fill work and TLC). We also have tails for $5 each (these also work for the giant cannons with some re-work) and "Alien Seed Pods" for $40 each. All unpainted, unassembled. And "Giant Alien Talons" for $5 each Tyrannofex: Alpha* Beta (discontinued) Gamma* Omega* Tervigon: Alpha Beta Gamma Delta Swarmlord: Alpha Ninja* Ultra** Harpy: Alpha Gamma in each case is the one closest to the book version. Cost for unpainted is as follows: $135 $195 if marked with * $395 if marked with ** We also have the following, also unpainted for $95: Parasite of Mortrex Tyranid Prime Doom of Malan'tai In each case these are converted from mostly GW plastics. All can be painted for $35/$85/$105/$145 depending on size.

Government Zombie Tests It was the first public US showing of a film picturing an experiment by Soviet biologists. They drained the blood from a dog. Fifteen minutes after its heart had stopped beating, they pumped the blood back into its lifeless body with a machine called an autojector, serving as artificial heart and lungs. Soon the dog stirred, began to breathe; its heart began to beat. In twelve hours it was on its feet, wagging its tail, barking, fully recovered. Public Domain - Zombie-Popcorn.com
Complexity (Part 7): A Short History Of Nearly Everything. --- • www.youtube.com • www.youtube.com --- Climbing the Ladder of Structure It is possible to view the entire history of the universe as a story of complexity emerging again and again from simple systems under the influence of simple rules. The laws of physics bind together the most fundamental constituents of matter electrons and quarks into stable structures called atoms. Atoms themselves are subject to a new set of rules ... pushing and pulling one another, and combining into new forms molecules governed by the laws of chemistry. Simple molecules of water and carbon dioxide, consisting of only a few atoms, can combine and interact in ever more complicated ways ... building more and more complex structures ... clumps and chains and rings. The rules of chemistry are universal. The same kinds of amino acids that we find in our own bodies can also be found in the cold depths of space. At some point, very large and complex molecules become capable of something new. DNA molecules make copies of themselves. The chemical metabolism inside of a cell produces and stores energy ... energy that can be used for motion... and reproduction. The raw material of chemistry has given rise to a new kind of complex behavior one that we call life.

bit.ly Symbrion (Symbiotic Evolutionary Robot Organisms) is a project funded by European Commissions to develop a framework in which a homogeneous swarm of miniature interdependent robots can co-assemble into a larger robotic organism to gain problem-solving momentum. One of the key-aspects of Symbrion is inspired by the biological world: an artificial genome that allows to store and evolve (sub)optimal configurations in order to achieve an increased speed of adaptation. The SYMBRION project does not start from zero, previous development and research from project I-SWARM and the open-source SWARMROBOT projects serve as a mounting point. A large part of the developments within Symbrion is open-source and open-hardware. The main focus of these projects is to investigate and develop novel principles of adaptation and evolution for symbiotic multi-robot organisms based on bio-inspired approaches and modern computing paradigms. Such robot organisms consist of super-large-scale swarms of robots, which can dock with each other and symbiotically share energy and computational resources within a single artificial-life-form. When it is advantageous to do so, these swarm robots can dynamically aggregate into one or many symbiotic organisms and collectively interact with the physical world via a variety of sensors and actuators. The bio-inspired evolutionary paradigms combined with robot embodiment and swarm-emergent phenomena, enable the organisms to autonomously manage their own ...

This program simulates an environment in which simple organisms with brains can evolve. The brains are directed graphs with nodes as the neurons and edges as axon/dendrite pairs. The neural network is simulated fully with each signal traveling down the edges, instead of having the conventional approach where all neurons are updated per simulation tick. The DNA is composed of: the structure of the brain, (ie the set of existing edges) parameters for neurons (firing threshold, excitation decay rate), and edges (speed, strength) Genetic algorithm with sexual reproduction is used to find brains that maximize the number of simulation ticks that an organism survives. Programmed in Python, Pygame library is used for drawing.

Russian scientists manage to keep a dogs head alive without its body, this includes brain activity and feeling/vision. this was filmed in 1940. Russian scientists detach a dogs head for the purpose of testing and research artificial life support in pre-soviet republic. The dog is awakened in this video after having it's head surgically severed and is experimented on to determine if the animal is lucid, and to document the technology in this film reel.
important to our survival to be put at risk ! What's wrong with genetic engineering (GE)? Genetic engineering enables scientists to create plants, animals andmicro-organisms by manipulating genes in a way that does not occurnaturally. These genetically modified organisms (GMOs) can spread through natureand interbreed with natural organisms, thereby contaminating non 'GE'environments and future generations in an unforeseeable anduncontrollable way.

Aiptasia anemones and Valonia macroalgae are two common nuisance organisms that should be kept out of reef tanks in general and nano tanks in particular. The best way to prevent their introduction to your tank is to inspect new purchases (especially live rock and corals) very carefully, or to quarantine and observe new purchases for several days before putting them into your tank. Usually Aiptasia anemones come in unnoticed on wild live rock or on other organisms. They do sting corals and other invertebrates and can proliferate if not removed quickly. Your local fish store should take steps to control these in their tanks! The threadfin butterfly fish, Chaetodon aurega, is a superb biological control weapon against Aiptasia. Peppermint shrimps, Copperbanded butterflies and Berghia nudibranchs also consume them but not as reliably or efficiently as C. aurega, You can remove Aiptasia anemones manually with a toothbrush or kill them by injecting them at the base with kalkwasser or Reef Complete. But the best solution of all is to inspect everything very carefully before placing it into your tank and remove any Aiptasia at that time. Please use only captive-bred organisms in your reef aquarium. To see more of our videos click here: www.youtube.com To learn more about healthy reefkeeping click here: ipsf.com
Our Tiny Turbo Snails eat nuisance algae and breed unassisted in marine aquariums. They therefore meet our criteria for inclusion in nano reef systems. When we select only organisms that can grow and breed by themselves in our aquariums we increase the resilience of these captive communities and improve our long-term chances of success. When marine organisms cannot or will not breed in a given captive system it is often an indication that the system is TOO SMALL for them, potentially lacking available space, food, habitat or some other requirement critical to reproductive success. As attractive or entertaining as these organisms may be, perhaps it would be wise not to include them in our tanks. When marine organisms do breed on their own in our nano reef tanks it is an excellent sign that we have met their basic biological requirements satisfactorily. In achieving this we help relieve harvesting pressure on wild populations of these organisms. Please use only captive-bred organisms in your reef aquarium.

Experiments in the Revival of Organisms is a 1940 motion picture which documents Soviet research into the resuscitation of clinically dead organisms. It is available from the Prelinger Archives, where it is in the public domain. The British scientist JBS Haldane appears in the film's introduction and narrates the film, which contains Russian text with English applied next to, or over the top of, the Russian. The operations are credited to Doctor Sergei S. Bryukhonenko.

Footage of Soviet scientists in the 1940s killing, then reviving a dog. It should be known that although the narrator in the video claims that the dogs live for many years after the procedure, the medical papers of the procedure claim that most of the dogs only survived for a few days.
Footage of Soviet scientists in the 1940s, who had removed the head of a dog and kept it alive with what is believed to be the first artificial heart and lung machine. The blood was chemically treated to keep from clotting. Although the narrator claims that the revived head lives on for hours, the medical papers of the procedure claims that it only survived for a few minutes.
