This unselfishness is the test of religion. He who has more of this unselfishness is more spiritual and nearer to Shiva than anybody else, whether he knows it or not. And if a man is selfish, even though he has visited all the temples, seen all the places of pilgrimage, and painted himself like a leopard, he is still further off from Shiva.
Eisenberg's team was specifically interested in a small fragment of the long protein complex that forms the fibril - the folded, twisted, insoluble sheet that develops in the brains of people with amyloid-associated diseases. Their previous work purifying and assembling these protein complexes meant they could create a model of how the sections of this fragment link together and interact.
The team grew 13 microcrystals that matched the atomic structure of the fibrils of different amyloids, and discovered that each one shared a common site, which they termed a steric zipper. At this site the proteins interlink to form a dry interface.
The proteins are held in their folded formation by steric forces. These forces of attraction are caused by the close proximity and complementary shape of the interlinking molecules. 'The sidechains protruding from the sheets on each side of the fold look like the
Bernard Vaissiere, who studies the ecology of bees at the French research centre INRA in Avignon, told Chemistry World: 'I do not think that there is a link between the greater susceptibility of the European honeybee to the small hive beetle and colony collapse disorder. CDD seems related to lower immune

Internet filtering and surveillance, and to promote and
inform wider public dialogue about such practices.
Imagine having a fast connection to an open Internet wherever you go, without needing a telephone wire or cable modem.
The FCC could make this happen. Instead theyâ™re on the verge of turning over our public Internet airwaves to the same giant phone and cable companies that control high-speed access for more than 96 percent of American users.
Donâ™t let the FCC give away our wireless Internet to these price-gouging giants. We need to use these public airwaves to connect more Americans to an open, neutral and affordable Internet.
And this is what I appended at the beginning of the comment field:
The idea of using the existing TV spectrum for widely available broadband is tremendously exciting. As a business owner, I could see that this might spark a wave of creative entrepreneurship like the original dotcom boom a decade ago, and create useful technologies we can only dream of currently. Open access is the way to d

Our specific goals are:
* placement of the 16 acre site on the National Register of Historic Places
* restoration of the building and stabilization of the tower foundation
* conversion of the site into a science museum complex to be known as the
Tesla Museum and Science Center at Wardenclyffe.
