Moving to Wordpress!

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
The reason I'm not updating my blog are two:
First reason is that I've been too busy with work during the last weeks, even now that is Sunday I've spent it at work all day!
The second and maybe the main reason is that I've been trying to set up everything to move my blog to WordPress. I decided to move to wordpress because it is an OpenSource and on the other hand my webhost supports it better.
Movable Type is a great management system but unfortunately when you have the personal free version there is no support for it and also I had problems with some of the features in my host so I thought would be a good Idea to move to wordPress and also move the weblog to the root of FreeLantern so if you are linking to my weblog please correct your links to Free Lantern.
I've also set up a Persian blog for myself, so I'll be also writing from time to time in Persian.

Every Human has Rights2008 is the 60th anniversary of Universal Declaration of Human rights.The Elders say that the government have been signing this declaration for the past 60 years but now you have the chance to sign it in Every Human Has Rights website. You can read a plain language version of the declaration in this homepage and be one of those who sign and join this campaign.
The Hub, the media site specialized for human rights, is also working with Every Human Has Rights campaign to build a global digital databank of human rights stories, in text, audio and video.

I saw this video in Britt Bravo's blog, it is a music video created by will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas based on Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech. As today is an important day I thought I'd share it here with you. Watch the video:

Inside a Cell

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)
When I was doing my B.Sc. and M.Sc. I can say the only resource of learning we had were books. Nowadays there are so many scientific resources available online most of which are free (at least for educational and research purposes), that can make learning easier for students. I came across this award winning animation by BioVision at Harvard which is graphically reproduction of some of the important phenomena's inside the cell. It is called The Inner Life of a Cell. I'm sure this short version with the amazing music you see bellow, anyone can enjoy even if you're not a biologist. As a biologist/Molecular biologist I suggest that after watching the short form also watch the complete version with the explanation on their homepage.  I love the part showing the Motor protein carrying a vesicle along the microtubules.
I also use this opportunity to introduce this valuable webpage: MolecularMovies is an amazing collection of cell and molecular animations, you can surf through them and enjoy.
