first_imgScientists have long studied how atoms and molecules structure themselves into intricate clusters. Unlocking the design secrets of nature offers lessons in engineering artificial systems that could self-assemble into desired forms.In the Jan. 29 issue of Science, a team from Harvard led by Vinothan Manoharan and Michael Brenner presents additional clues to how and why groups of atoms and molecules may favor less symmetrical and more complex, flexible geometric patterns.The answer relates to a familiar concept in physics called entropy, the ways in which particles are able to arrange themselves. The researchers first caught sight of the link by using magnetic  “stick and ball” construction toys that can make varying shapes.Manoharan, associate professor of chemical engineering and physics in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Department of Physics, and his colleagues used colloidal particles, a suspended chemical mixture seen in semi-solid foods such as mayonnaise, to simulate the clustering behavior of atoms and molecules.“To allow clusters to form, we put a few tiny polystyrene spheres in microscopic cylindrical wells filled with water. The particles act as  ’sticky’ hard spheres and naturally cluster together just like groups of nearby interacting atoms and molecules do,” said Manoharan.The researchers expected that simple, highly symmetric shapes would arise most often. Instead, two surprising, related, and scalable phenomena arose when the number of particles used in their experiments reached six or rose above nine.Six particles can form into a symmetrical octahedron and into a more complex tri-tetrahedron shape. In terms of chemical structure, each shape results in 12 bonds, and hence, has the same amount of potential energy. With the potential energy being equal, Manoharan and colleagues thought that both shapes would occur in equal proportion. They found, however, that the tri-tetrahedron occurs 20 times more often than the octahedron.“The only possible explanation was entropy,” said Manoharan. “Most people are familiar with entropy as a measure of  ‘disorder,’ but the most useful definition of entropy is simply the number of different ways a bunch of particles can arrange themselves.”Natalie Arkus, a former applied mathematics graduate student who worked with Brenner, the Glover Professor of Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics, provided a hint to solving the puzzle, as she discovered a method to calculate all the possible structures that could be formed using geometric magnetic toys made up of magnetic metal rods and silver ball bearings.Since there are more ways for the complicated tri-tetrahedron structure to form (something that can be seen by labeling the toy spheres and counting the ways they can be put together), the shape appears far more frequently than the octahedron. In general, among clusters with the same potential energy, highly symmetric structures are less likely to arise.The researchers also found that when the number of particles reaches nine or higher, entropy plays another important role.Because the number of possible structures with nine or more particles is vast, the team focused on what are called nonrigid, or flexible, structures. Nonrigidity occurs when a cluster is half octahedral and shares at least one vertex, allowing the cluster to twist without  breaking or forming another bond (something also easily seen by using the toys).“Because they can move flexibly, the nonrigid clusters have high vibrational entropy,” explained Manoharan. “In cases with nine or more particles, symmetric clusters do not appear as often due to rotational entropy. The ability to rotate is useful, as it allows clusters to have extra bonds.”As a general rule, the team found that for all clusters up to eight particles and a select number of structures with up to 12, the most symmetric structures occurred the least often due to entropy.“Our findings illustrate, in a tangible way, what the concept of entropy means,” said Manohran.Looking ahead, the researchers are interested in using their results to understand the emergence of bulk crystallization, or how particles come together in the early stages of forming a crystal.Manoharan and Brenner’s co-authors included Guangnan Meng, a research associate in the Department of Physics at Harvard University, and Natalie Arkus, a graduate of SEAS and now a postdoctoral fellow at the Rockefeller University.

first_img– Advertisement – Tarnawa could have gone for the Filly & Mare Turf, but connections chose this stiffer task for the in-form three-year-old, who had won the Prix Vermeille and Prix de l’Opera on her last two starts for her owner the Aga Khan.Keane had her at the back of the field as Channel Maker and United set the pace, with Aidan O’Brien’s Magical in a handy position not far off the lead.Channel Maker set sail for home at the top of the straight, but the pack closed in a furlong out with Keane producing Tarnawa with a perfectly-timed run that saw her keep Magical at bay by a length. Channel Maker was another length away in third.- Advertisement – Keane said: “Mr Weld gave me a call and told me what was happening, and then he rang again today and said it would have been lovely if I’d sat on her before, because she takes a bit of knowing.“They had worked with her at the stalls while she had been here and when I spoke to Oisin Orr he said the filly had done one of her pieces of work before she left Ireland.“It’s been a brilliant year, it’s lovely to get this victory going home and it’s definitely the icing on the cake for the year we’ve had.” Dermot Weld and Colin Keane teamed up to great effect as Tarnawa stormed to victory in the Breeders’ Cup Turf at Keeneland.Crowned champion jockey once again in Ireland, Keane was replacing the luckless Christophe Soumillon, who also missed a winning ride on Order Of Australia in the Breeders’ Cup Mile. It was his first ride for veteran trainer Weld, who was also enjoying his first Breeders’ Cup success.- Advertisement – Weld’s son, Mark, said: “It doesn’t get any bigger than this. These overseas prestige races in the autumn are what we train them for and I’m sad my dad is not here, but the Covid situation put paid to that.“It was Colin’s first ride for us and there were no instructions. We left it completely up to him and as soon as I saw Colin pull her out, it was a like a jet seeing a runway and off she went.“My father has been a long-standing supporter of American racing ever since Go And Go won the Belmont back in 1990. He worked in the United States as a boy and it’s very special to him.”- Advertisement –last_img read more

first_imgClint EllisBrookville, In. — A former reserve Laurel police officer is facing multiple charges and is accused of mistreating and starving his canine partner, Blade.Court documents state two Laurel police officers told investigators Clint Ellis did not properly care for Blade and they had seen the canine officer wallowing in his own waste, in a cage. Witnesses also told investigators the dog about 30 pounds between October and December of 2017. Ellis was the primary caregiver for Blade from August of 2017 until his death on New Year’s Day 2018.On New Year’s Day witnesses told police they saw Blade, dead in a dirty cage. Ellis allegedly told the witnesses he was going to contact a veterinarian later. Days later, Ellis told investigators he was unable to contact the vet before the canine officer passed away and was unable to bury the body because the ground was frozen. The canine officer’s body was released for an autopsy on January 26.The autopsy showed the dog died from intestinal foreign bodies and whole body emaciation.Ellis has been charged with interfering with law enforcement and cruelty to animals in this case. He also faces charges of harassment of hunters, two counts of theft and official misconduct.last_img read more

first_img The 22-year-old, who qualifies via his maternal grandmother, was handed a first senior call-up for Wednesday night’s friendly in Cyprus and is thrilled to be given a chance on the international stage. He started his career at Southampton’s renowned academy, where he was a year above England and Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, but dropped down to Sky Bet League One when he was released by the Saints. Press Association Reeves has taken well to the task, scoring 10 times this season from midfield and catching the eye of Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill in the process. “My nan is from Fermanagh and a lot of my Mum’s side still live over there, so I always knew it was a chance for me to play for Northern Ireland,” he told Press Association Sport. “I was ecstatic when I got the call, so was my family and everyone at home too. “It would be unbelievable to play international football; it’s an incredible opportunity and it would be an honour to represent Northern Ireland.” Ironically, Reeves’ new international captain, Steven Davis, is one of the men who forced him out of St Mary’s when he was signed to bolster the club’s Premier League credentials in 2012. Reeves holds no grudges on that front, though, and is hoping his week away with the likes of Davis and Chris Brunt can help him become a better player. “I trained with ‘Davo’ a lot at Southampton and it’s good to know someone when you’re coming into a squad and meeting a lot of new people,” he said. “He’s an easy guy to get on with, everyone likes Steven. You can always improve and training with these players can only help. “Working with guys from different styles and different cultures is good, especially when they’re international players. “You need to learn from them and then take it back with you and improve.” center_img MK Dons midfielder Ben Reeves is eager to make the most of his “incredible opportunity” with Northern Ireland.last_img read more
