Meeting Bio-Physicist – William Bialek with some Glimpse of Biophysics – [4th Jan 2016]

Whatever we see in this universe, everything is interconnected with Physical laws, they have Physical existence and physical significance in detail. I was fortunate enough to meet the legendary Bio-Physicist Wiliam Bialek, in the International center for theoretical science. Bangalore. I asked few doubts about Physics and its Interdisciplinary sciences they have worked. especially Biology and physics. Please find his lecture link below. excellent lecture ever heard about bio-physics. thank you ICTS for a wonderful lecture, and also I thank William Bialek an honorary physicist for wonderful session.

Some things about Bio-Physics

How we can Classify Bio-Physics?

Astro-biophysics It’s the of the field of connection between astrophysics and biophysics concerned with the influence of the Astrophysical phenomena upon life on planet Earth or some other planet in general. also, is concerned with the result of astrophysical procedures on life on Earth, as well as effects on likely life in any part of this universe.

Molecular Biophysics interdisciplinary field that applies methods and concepts from physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and biology to comprehend biomolecular schemes and explain biological function in terms of molecular structure, structural organization, and dynamic behavior at various levels of complexity, from single molecules to supramolecular structures, viruses, and small living systems.

Medical biophysics an interdisciplinary field that applies approaches and concepts from physics to medicine or healthcare, ranging from radiology to microscopy and nanomedicine. See also, medical physics.

Clinical biophysics studies the procedure and effects of non-ionizing physical energies utilized for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

What is its application area?

biomolecular scale
Organismal scale
Environmental scale

Biophysics research has its research areas in Biochemistry, Bioengineering, Nanotechnology

VENUE: ICTS campus, Bangalore

from the level of networks of genes and proteins to the embryonic and neural levels, information at various scales drives biological self-organization.
Living systems process this information to an astonishing degree of accuracy and generate the complex patterns of life. Physicists, mathematicians, engineers, and biologists are collaborating extensively to unravel the role of information in biological processes. This discussion meeting aims to focus on recent advances in the general principles of information processing and self-organization in living systems.

Dark side of Fireworks industry – Woman Work life – Socio-Concern Article

Hello everyone here is my first public welfare article, Man evolved progressively to this current world with some significant inventions like gun powder and fireworks. Fireworks – which is a visual fantasy of light and sound, but hardly anyone knows the darker side of woman employees working in the fireworks industry. Quality of work life in these industries is a frightening to workers but they do it desperately, they hardly get reimbursements at the time of accidents.

These swarming factories do not bother about woman safety. In these industries, women are working with low remuneration and Woman’s work with small neonatal in their lap, even sometimes a pregnant woman works in these environments. The basic needs like water, a toilet is very pitiful. They do not wear any protective wearing, safety tools. While working woman’s hair and the body might be full of dangerous chemicals such as Sulphur, potassium, aluminum powder and even gun powder leading to skin cancers also few women end up into infertility if prolonged use of these contaminated water and food at the place of firework industries. skin injuries are common here, metallic chemicals (Smoke) with small dosage is enough to inhale into the lungs and might cause a harmful effect in long-term diseases related to lungs, respiratory organs.

Intake of chemical contaminated foods and water might be a reason to it when a family makes a choice of sending their children to school, always girl is left working, the boy sent to school, but very rarely people here take decisions of sending their children to school. Fireworks industry making future of woman and children to lose the opportunities but a proper proposal must be carried out by the government. Some proper and holistic developmental steps involved in awareness and awareness of promotional activities in woman empowerment and protection can bring joy in their life.

POETRY AND SCIENCE

The Love – Unconditional Form [A Poem]

Every time I see you, it completes my sight
I think I perceive through your senses

Every thought comes in my cognizance
It’s interrelated to you….!

Why you made me guest in this notorious place
I became indefinite to folks who care for me…

Why you are in my feelings only…
Why not in my realism?

Your terribly cute to my retina
Is that only a chemical reaction happening in my heart?

Heart, brain, nervous, reflexes feel your unconditioned love
Tell me more about this comforting fact of loving you

Restful datum of loathing someone who shows hatred on you
what is the reason, this journey started when you smiled at me…

Your smile reveals the science behind this love,
You say take care, I say you need to take care

Love, friendship is that border for us…
We will be together in this eternal universe

Akshay Kumar [12/05/2015]

I think unconditioned love is a most powerful form of love which helps in empowerment and enlightenment of individuals in this modern world. So love unconditionally….

THEORETICAL PHYSICS - 1

What is Light ? [Philosophical view]

Light is more mysterious thing in universe…its source might be difficult to tell, a form of energy. ..to all living beings, without light no life, no sight,no evolution may be in any part of the universe. light has got most significant role in our universe, without which evolution couldn’t be possible. 

In India, we celebrate festival of light called Deepawali / Diwali .One of the major festivals of Hinduism, it spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

The name of festive days as well as the rituals of Diwali vary significantly among Hindus, based on the region of India. In many parts of India, the festivities start with Dhanteras (in Northern and Western part of India), followed by Naraka Chaturdasi on second day, Deepavali on the third day, Diwali Padva dedicated to wife–husband relationship on the fourth day, and festivities end with Bhai Dooj dedicated to sister–brother bond on the fifth day. Dhanteras usually falls eighteen days after Dussehra.

Festival of light across India and many places.

Many of worldwide religion got importance in celebration of light.Also in Egyptian civilizations used sun has their God….Sources of light and life.The figure below has clearly shows how an Nun, the embodiment of the primordial waters, lifts the barque of the sun god Ra into the sky at the moment of creation.

Sun a source of light

If we consider a future of earth The biological and geological future of Earth can be extrapolated based upon the estimated effects of several long-term influences. These include the chemistry at Earth’s surface, the rate of cooling of the planet’s interior, the gravitational interactions with other objects in the Solar System, and a steady increase in the Sun’s luminosity.Ancient days the speed and its properties are observed on the basis of physical existence…and more clearly i can say by observing nature of light.that what we see from our eyes.

Going back to ancient days..
Newton is one of them who started to observe the light from eyes differently..what a joke all we see from our eyes only..then what different newton had seen? 

confused , let me explain around 1690 AD newton started his studies on light.he used the special instrument called prism.now a days prism is common.but in 16th century,newton used it as one of great science device,to reveal the secrets of light. he saw not only light,but the color full light emerging from prism.(VIBGYOR)this is what i said.in history mankind newton is the first person to observe,such phenomenon. for today its a simple thing. and started to give his conclusions.And written his book ‘Optics’.but let me give some properties which cannot be explained by just looking through naked eyes. Light can move through vacuum, Light transports energy , same as our sun provides energy to life on any planet  (if their are planets which have life other than earth ).

SCIENCE POINT : Light has angular momentum: it can rotate bodies, light being both particle and wave. It exhibits most quantum mechanical properties. Even our life sciences, polariser,  particle accelerator. .work only because of light’s this special property.Light has momentum: it can collide the particles.A special property friends my future blog will be on this,light moves with other light undisturbed..Light in outer-space moves faster than all objects in this universe.. The speed of light, its true signal speed, is the forerunner speed.299 792 458 m/s is the speed of light in vaccum. and 30c.m/n.s (30 centimeter per nano seconds.1/1000000000.The proper speed of light.another one a Shadows can move without any speed limit.

Light moves in a straight line when far from matter.High-intensity light is a wave.(credit:motion mountain_relativity),Light beams are approximations when the wavelength is neglected.In matter, both the forerunner speed and the energy speed of light are lower than in vacuum.In matter, the group velocity of light pulses can be zero, positive, negative or infinite.these are the properties of light which are gifts of quantum physics.or modern physics..the era of quantum physics was began in 1905(see my previous post for more information)this changed the world into quantum world.and some property of light is very strange and it was an miracle thing for ancients,hence may be miracle must be reveled as common things.

Light in Science
