Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder, Sharon Kleyne, Reports on Getting the Most Out of Skin Lotion During the Winter Dry-Skin Season Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 13, 2013 There are numerous commercial “moisturizing” lotions, crèmes, gels, medications, ointments, masques and facial preparations available for dry, chapped, irritated or dehydrated skin, and they can be very effective. A recent report by water and skin researcher Sharon Kleyne cautioned that to obtain full benefit...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Founder Sharon Kleyne Predicts Lessening of Atmosphere’s Ability to Cleanse Itself. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 12, 2013 Satellite observations over the last 40 years suggest a trend towards increasing atmospheric temperatures in the middle latitudes. Since higher temperatures cause surface water to evaporate at a faster rate, the initial result is increased humidity. Increased humidity increases the air’s ability to hold...

X-rays Reveal Unexpected Property Of Widely Used Nanoparticles
2013-11-12 15:02:07

European Synchrotron Radiation Facility A new chapter has been opened in our understanding of the chemical activity of nanoparticles says a team of international scientists. Using the X-ray beams of the European Synchrotron ESRF they showed that the electrons absorbed and released by cerium dioxide nanoparticles during chemical reactions behave in a completely different way than previously thought: the electrons are not bound to individual atoms but, like a cloud, distribute themselves...

Changing Surface Textures In 'Counterintuitive Manner' May Lead To Cooling Efficiency Gains

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder Sharon Kleyne raises questions about long-term climate change and human health. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 07, 2013 Satellite observations over the last 40 years suggest a gradual change from snow to rain, especially at the beginning and end of the cold season globally, and at higher elevations over the Earth’s surface. That was one of the predictions in a recent White Paper by Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for...

Discovery raises prospects for new therapies Some of the most commonly prescribed drugs for the treatment of heart failure are beta-blockers and nitrates, which help to relax blood vessels and decrease the heart's workload. The drugs were thought to produce those effects through distinct molecular pathways, but according to a new study led by scientists at Temple University School of Medicine, both types of drugs may help the failing heart by counteracting the effects of an enzyme known as...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Bio Logic Aqua Research Founder, Sharon Kleyne, Raises Questions about Long-Term Climate Change and Human Health Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) October 31, 2013 Satellite and in-situ observation suggests changes in the long-term characteristics of precipitation at the Earth’s surface to less frequent but more intense rain and snow events. This is especially evident over land masses with the greatest human populations. That was one of the conclusions in a...

Report by DeWayne Cecil, PhD, for Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, Sharon Kleyne, Raises Questions about Atmospheric Water Vapor Content and Human Health. Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) October 30, 2013 For the past 40 years, satellite observations suggest that the amount of water vapor in the upper atmosphere is decreasing causing a drying trend. During the same period, observation of Earth’s land masses showed no changes and no trend in water vapor content. That was one point highlighted...

Indium is a chemical element in the periodic table that has the symbol In and atomic number 49. This rare, soft, malleable and easily fusible poor metal, is chemically similar to aluminium or gallium but looks more like zinc (zinc ores are also the primary source of this metal). Its current primary application is to form transparent electrodes from Indium tin oxide in liquid crystal displays. It is also widely used in thin-films to form lubricated layers (during World War II it was widely...

There are a number of iron oxides: Iron oxides Iron(II) oxide or ferrous oxide (FeO) The black-coloured powder in particular can cause explosions as it readily ignites. Iron(III) oxide or ferric oxide (Fe2O3) known in its natural state as hematite or haematite, but also purified for use as a coating in magnetic audio and computer media, where it is known as ferric oxide. Also known as rouge. Iron(II,III) oxide or ferrous ferric oxide (Fe3O4), better known as the black-coloured...

Limonite Limonite is a ferric hydrate of varying composition, the generic formula is frequently written as FeO(OH)·nH2O, although this is not entirely accurate as Limonite often contains a varying amount of oxide compared to hydroxide. Together with hematite, it is mined as ore for the production of iron. Limonite is heavy and yellowish-brown. It is not a true mineral, however, but a mixture of similar hydrated iron oxide minerals, mostly Goethite. Limonite forms mostly in or near...

Magnetite is a magnetic mineral form of both iron(II) oxide and iron(III) oxide or (iron(II,III) oxide), with chemical formula Fe3O4, one of several iron oxides and a member of the spinel group. Magnetite is the most magnetic of all the minerals on Earth, and these magnetic properties led to lodestone being used as an early form of magnetic compass. Small grains of magnetite occur in almost all igneous rocks and metamorphic rocks as well as many sedimentary rocks. Magnetite is a...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
