Synchrotron-based ν-XRF mapping and μ-FTIR microscopy enable to look into the fate and effects of tattoo pigments in human skin
In recent years, the seemingly unstoppable trend for tattoos has brought safety concerns into the spotlight1. Currently, basic toxicological aspects, from biokinetics to possible alterations of the pigments, are largely uncertain. The animal experiments which would be necessary to address these toxicological issues were rated unethical because tattoos are applied as a matter of choice and lack medical necessity, similar to cosmetics2. Consequently, the hazards that potentially derive from tattoos were as yet only investigated by chemical analysis of the inks and their degradation products in vitro3,4,5,6. Even though toxicological data might be available for some ink ingredients individually, information on in vivo interactions of the ink’s components and their fate within the body is rare.

There is increasing concern that most current published research findings are false. The probability that a research claim is true may depend on study power and bias, the number of other studies on the same question, and, importantly, the ratio of true to no relationships among the relationships probed in each scientific field. In this framework, a research finding is less likely to be true when the studies conducted in a field are smaller; when effect sizes are smaller; when there is a greater number and lesser preselection of tested relationships; where there is greater flexibility in designs, definitions, outcomes, and analytical modes; when there is greater financial and other interest and prejudice; and when more teams are involved in a scientific field in chase of statistical significance. Simulations show that for most study designs and settings, it is more likely for a research claim to be false than true. Moreover, for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. In this essay, I discuss the implications of these problems for the conduct and interpretation of research.
The landscape of overt surveillance camera systems in public spaces has changed significantly since the introduction of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and the Secretary of State’s Surveillance Camera Code of Practice 2013. An evolution and proliferation of new technologies and new capabilities create a dynamic challenge for regulators, policy makers and lawmakers. The risk potential for intrusion on citizens has significantly increased both by lawful operators of surveillance camera systems and those individual or State actors who seek to ‘hack’ in to systems. Cyber security has moved to the top of the security agenda.
This letter is to inform you that the U S. Department of Education (Department) intends to fine the Master's University and Seminary (TMC; College; University) a total of $29,000 based on the violations of statutory and regulatory requirements outlined below. This fine action is taken in accordance with the procedures that the Secretary Of Education (Secretary) has established for assessing fines against institutions participating in any or all of the programs authorized under Title IV of the Higher Education Act Of 1965, as amended, 20 U.S.C. 1070 el seq. (Title IV, HEA programs).
Global annually averaged surface air temperature has increased by about 1.8°F (1.0°C) over the last 115 years (1901–2016). This period is now the warmest in the history of modern civilization. The last few years have also seen record-breaking, climate-related weather extremes, and the last three years have been the warmest years on record for the globe. These trends are expected to continue over climate timescales.
Attended the Mutual UFO Network 1978 UFO Symposium, Dayton, Ohio. On Saturday a program was presented by a Mr. Stringfield and ad an adjunct he introduced a Mr. Robert Barry. Barry discussed, and showed publicly, two letter he allegedly received from the CIA. My immediate opinion was that the letter were fraudulent. Sunday I was introduced to Mr. Stringfield and requested copies of the letters. I explained that I felt that the letters were frauds and the I thought I could possibly have them checked out.
The implications of the UFO phenomena go far beyond the particular phenomena itself. The human incapacity to objectively process such data indicates a serious weakness in the intelligence community. This weakness ought to be remedied and quickly if the United States is to be able to respond swiftly and appropriately to surprise attach indicators. The reason that surprise attack is such a basic ingredient of military success is that it is able to rely on a most dependable human blind spot. The inability of most men to objectively process and evaluate highly unusual data and to react to the data in a meaningful way.
The project "SEAL" had its origin in a request of the Commander South Pacific Area (COMSOPAC) during April 1944, to the New Zealand Government for an investigation into the potentialities of offensive inundation by waves generated by means of explosives. During the period from February to April exploratory trials in New Caledonia indicated that there were reasonable prospects of developing techniques for favourable sites. The request incorporated two — the development of techniques, and the application of these to a trial upon an operational scale.
Owing to changes in policy at a later date, the second part was cancelled.
In August 2002, the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) launched what would become a six-year investigation of the three building failures that occurred on September 11, 2001 (9/11): the well-known collapses of the World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers that morning and the lesser-known collapse late that afternoon of the 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, which was not struck by an airplane. NIST conducted its investigation based on the stated premise that the “WTC Towers and WTC 7 [were] the only known cases of total structural collapse in high-rise buildings where fires played a significant role.”
