Editor’s selections: the Irish-Caribbean, Earth’s early years, wound-healing and nest-building, and large quantum objects

By Dr. SkySkull

skyskull “Dr. SkySkull” selects several notable posts each week from a miscellany of ResearchBlogging.org categories. He blogs at Skulls in the Stars.

  • The Irish Diaspora: Why Even Trinidadians Are a Little Irish. On the heels of St. Patrick’s Day, Krystal at Anthropology in Practice tells the fascinating and little-known tale of why there is an Irish influence in the British Caribbean.
  • Earth’s forgotten youth – and beyond. Though we know some things about Earth’s early history, geological data from that period is extraordinarily rare.  Chris at Highly Allochthonous looks at and explains a recent attempt to develop a better timeline of events before and after the Earth’s formation.
  • Nest making, oxytocin, and social bonding. At her eponymously-titled blog, The Dog Zombie looks at an intriguing paper connecting wound healing, nest building, and oxytocin in rats — and gives some strong criticism of the results.
  • Rethinking quantum states and computers. Finally, Greg Fish at weird things discusses an experiment that has put an object large enough to be seen with the naked eye into a quantum-mechanical state!

That’s it for this week — check back next Monday for more “miscellaneous” selections!

    植牙價格約介於五到十萬元不等,而一般假牙的價格約五千元起跳。人工植牙的價格雖然較一般假牙安裝高出許多,但是由於人工植牙的維護和真牙相 似,只要維持良好的口腔衛生習慣,定期看牙醫,人工植牙是可長期使用的。
