Focus Description:

Take a light silk scarf from the table, wave it and show it from all sides. Waving again, remove the potted flower from the handkerchief and place it on the table.

Show the handkerchief again - it is empty. Wave it again and take out another flower pot from the handkerchief. Repeat these steps four to five times. A row of pots of flowers will line up on the table.

Focus secret:

The secret of the trick lies in the arrangement of the pots. They are made of cloth dyed in the color of clay. The picture shows a flower with a folded pot.

A spring is hidden inside the pot, which keeps the pot in a stretched state all the time. In appearance, such a pot is no different from the usual. At the top of it, a metal cover is covered with imitation earth. A hole is drilled in the center of the lid, through which a thick stem (rod) of the flower passes in the middle.

All other flowers and leaves are attached to it. The rod with its lower end is tightly attached to the bottom of the pot. At a height of about 3 cm from the bottom, the rod has a hinge (shown by an arrow in the figure), which allows it to be bent at a right angle. The hinge also serves as a stopper when folding the pot.

When folding, the hinge on the rod bends. Now the pot won't open. In this form, it can be easily put under the vest, from where it gets at the right time. Taking out the flower, the rod is bent, and the pot itself is stretched under the action of the spring.

The hinge will be below the top metal cap so the rod will be held perfectly straight. The hinge should not be made very weak: it must rotate with some resistance, otherwise the pot may open prematurely or the rod will sway. It is easy to hide four or five such pots under the vest on both sides.

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 ... >>

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 ... >>

Why there is no point in arguing about tastes 08.12.2003

In the human genome, about a thousand genes are responsible for the sense of smell. Of these, more than half do not work. This has been known for several years.

And now Israeli geneticists have found that at least 50 olfaction genes behave differently in different people: they work for some, they are disabled for others. This, apparently, explains the fact that some people like the same perfumes, while others do not. And since the sense of smell largely affects the sensation of taste, fifty variable genes can determine our food preferences. Now the meaning of the old saying "Tastes differ".

The discovery may be of interest to the food and perfume industries: it is possible that it makes sense to produce perfumes, drinks, chips, sweets not for everyone, but for certain genetic groups of the population.
