When the quantum internet arrives, researchers predict it will shift the computing landscape on a scale unseen in decades. In their estimation, it will make hacking a thing of the past. It will secure global power grids and voting systems. It will enable nearly limitless computing power and allow users to securely send information across vast distances.

Inspiration is infinite. You can find it in plants, movement of peoples and objects, signs, temperature, colours, light, trauma, interactions and conversation, eating, sleeping or not sleeping, art, writing, nature, zoning out, repetition and many more. Recently, two subjects have caught my attention for different reasons: family and composition. Because of the pandemic, I found myself thinking a lot and working small scale due to restrictions. Scanning became my principal method of presenting works. Delving through childhood memories and family photos went from nostalgia to an obsessive act of remembrance. Des souvenirs and recent works came from the ephemeral aspect of remembering. And with composition, I hope to create objects that function artistically. Contrast, colours, texture are elements rich in methodical exploration. There is limitless experimentation to do with a focus on the technical side of art.

Nanowires have great potential as building blocks for nanoscale electrical and optoelectronic devices. The difficulty in achieving functional and hierarchical nanowire structures poses an obstacle to realization of practical applications. While post-growth techniques such as fluidic alignment might be one solution, self-assembled structures during growth such as branches are promising for functional nanowire junction formation. In this study, we report vapor-liquid-solid (VLS) self-branching of GaN nanowires during AuPd-catalyzed chemical vapor deposition (CVD). This is distinct from branches grown by sequential catalyst seeding or vapor-solid (VS) mode. We present evidence for a VLS growth mechanism of GaN nanowires different from the well-established VLS growth of elemental wires. Here, Ga solubility in AuPd catalyst is limitless as suggested by a hypothetical pseudo-binary phase diagram, and the direct reaction between NH3 vapor and Ga in the liquid catalyst induce the nucleation and growth. The self-branching can be explained in the context of the proposed VLS scheme and migration of Ga-enriched AuPd liquid on Ga-stabilized polar surface of mother nanowires.

After analyzing a number of the Analects' weak anthropocentric passages, the argument proceeds by reinstating a principle of intertextual interpretation. We first discuss the Mencius, in which the already weak anthropocentrism of the Analects gives way to a more inclusive moral concern for the well-being of myriad life forms. Keeping in the context of pre-Qin Confucianism, I further argue that the shift toward a non-anthropocentric paradigm of ecological humanism is advanced by a model of persons-in-the-world suggested in the Great Learning. According to this model, persons are fundamentally situated within nested hierarchical structures of ecological relationships. My argument for Confucianism as a model of ecological humanism hinges upon a naturalistic reading of tianren heyi [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] Thus, I seek to support and clarify my theory by making a case for interpreting tian qua nature.
Extraction of PGCs at 8.5-12.5 dpc from the posterior fragment of the embryo and cultivation in the presence of soluble factors such as leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), steel factor (SF) and fibroblast growth factor (FGF), results in a population of cells that exhibits self-renewal and limitless proliferation ([7, 8, 44, 45]). Coined as embryonic germ (EG) cells, these cells resemble ES cells and are capable of generating chimeras and contributing to the mouse germline [7, 46, 47].
