Focus Description:

There are three candles on the table in candlesticks. The magician takes the matches and lights one candle. After he says that lighting with a match is too common. At these words, he raises his hand to the candle. The audience can clearly see that the hand is open and there is nothing in it. The artist puts out the candle, then, raising his hand to the third candle, lights it with the touch of his fingers, then, in the same way, light the second and first candles and immediately show the audience both empty hands.

Focus secret:

An ignition device is required. This is a narrow copper strip, bent in a half ring. A thin small tube 4-5 mm long and 15-20 mm long is soldered to it. A cotton wick soaked in olive or other vegetable oil is inserted into the tube. It is necessary that the oil burns evenly and calmly) without soot. The device prepared in this way (it must be painted to match the color of the hand) is put on the right middle finger.

If you now open your hand, turning your palm towards the audience, then they will not notice the device: it will be hidden by the hand.

Bringing your hand to the first burning candle, you quietly light the wick from it. Then, slightly moving your hand behind the candle, extinguish it. After that, you light all three candles as if with a simple touch of your fingers, in fact, with the help of a device burning in the tube - a wick. When the wick is burning, avoid sudden movements with your right hand so that the fire does not go out.

Improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells 14.06.2024

The latest solar technology research represents a significant breakthrough in improving the efficiency of PbS quantum dot solar cells. This method, based on the use of pulsed light, offers promise for simplifying the production and expanding the applications of these cells. A research team from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology has developed an innovative method that uses pulsed light to improve the electrical conductivity of PbS solar cells. This method can significantly reduce the processing time required to achieve similar results. PbS quantum dot solar cells have significant potential in solar technology due to their photovoltaic properties. However, the formation of defects on their surface can reduce their performance. The new method helps suppress defect formation and improve electrical conductivity. Using strong light to complete the process ... >>

Magnetic Power Bank 5000mAh 14.06.2024

Huawei introduces a convenient and multifunctional charger to the market - Huawei SuperCharge All-in-One Magnetic Power Bank. This magnetic battery allows you to quickly and conveniently charge your Huawei phone anywhere, anytime. With a thickness of just 11,26 mm and a weight of 141 grams, this portable power bank fits easily into a pocket or bag, making it ideal for travel and everyday use.

The new product supports wired charging with a power of 25 W and wireless charging up to 15 W (and up to 30 W when connected to an adapter), providing fast charging for both the power bank itself and other devices. The battery is compatible with various fast charging protocols such as SCP, UFCS and PD, making it ideal for a wide range of devices. The power bank is also compatible with Huawei phones that support wireless charging. ... >>

Changes in a father's brain after the birth of a child 13.06.2024

A recent study conducted by scientists from the Hefei Institute of Physical Sciences of the Chinese Academy of Sciences found interesting changes in the brains of men after becoming fathers. These changes were associated with involvement in child care, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Scientists found that men who became fathers experienced a loss of brain volume after giving birth. This volume loss was associated with greater involvement in parenting, sleep problems, and mental health symptoms. Researchers have found significant changes in men's brains between the prenatal and postnatal periods. In particular, there was a loss of gray matter volume, especially in parts of the brain responsible for higher functions such as language, memory, problem solving and decision making. Men who paid more attention to their children and spent more time with them lost more gray matter in their brains. This also affected their mental health ... >>

Unraveled the secrets of the cat's sense of smell 17.07.2023

The sense of smell plays an important role in the lives of many mammals, helping them find food, determine territory, and warn of the presence of predators. In the world of cats, it is one of the most developed, and their highly sensitive sense of smell is famous for its sharpness. Scientists from all over the world decided to study this unique feature of cats in more detail.

An international team of scientists from the Department of Otolaryngology at the Ohio State University (USA), the Ryan Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (USA), the Monell Chemical Sensation Center (USA) and the Waltham Petcare Research Institute (UK) conducted a study on cat scent. The scientists created a XNUMXD model of a cat's nose and ran simulations to understand how the flow of air laden with the smell of cat food passes through the spiral structures of this organ.

Previously, researchers have created models of the nasal cavity in humans and rats. However, the modeling of the cat's olfactory apparatus proved to be the most difficult. For this, high-resolution microcomputed tomography and a series of thin sections of biological tissues were used.

"We spent a lot of time developing the model and doing complex analysis to understand the functional benefit of this structure," said Cai Zhao, assistant professor of otolaryngology and senior author of the study.

He thinks that a cat's nose is probably as complex as a dog's, and perhaps even more so than a rodent's.
