Materials scientists find better model for glass creation

first_imgHarvard materials scientists have come up with what theybelieve is a new way to model the formation of glasses, a type of amorphoussolid that includes common window glass.Glasses form through the process of vitrification, in whicha glass-forming liquid cools and slowly becomes a solid whose molecules, thoughthey’ve stopped moving, are not permanently locked into a crystal structure.Instead, they’re more like a liquid that has merely stopped flowing, thoughthey can continue to move over long stretches of time.“A glass is permanent, but only over a certain time scale.It’s a liquid that just stopped moving, stopped flowing,” said David Weitz,Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics and Applied Physics in Harvard’s School ofEngineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Department of Physics. “Acrystal has a very unique structure, a very ordered structure that repeatsitself over and over. A glass never repeats itself. It wants to be a crystalbut something is preventing it from being a crystal.”Other than window glass, made from silica or silicon dioxide,Weitz said many sugars are glasses. Honey, for example, is not a glass at roomtemperature, but as it cools down and solidifies, it becomes a glass.Scientists such as Weitz use models to understand theproperties of glasses. Weitz and members of his research group, together withcolleagues at Columbia University and the University of North Texas, report inthis week’s Nature a new wrinkle on an old model that seems to improve how wellit mimics the behavior of glass.The model is a colloidial fluid, a liquid with tinyparticles, or colloids, suspended evenly in it. Milk, for example, is afamiliar colloidial fluid. Scientists model solidifying glasses using colloidsby adding more particles to the fluid. This increases the particles’concentration, making the fluid thicker, and making it flow more slowly. Theadvantage of this approach to studying glasses directly is size, Weitz said.The colloid particles are 1,000 times bigger than a molecule of a glass and canbe observed with a microscope“They’re big; they’re slow. They get slower and slower andslower and slower,” Weitz said. “They don’t behave like a fluid. They don’tbehave like a crystal. They behave in many ways like a glass.”The problem with traditional colloids used in these models,however, is that they often rapidly solidify past a certain point, unlike mostglasses, which continue to flow ever more slowly as they gradually solidify.Weitz and colleagues created a colloid that behaves more like a glass in thatway by using soft, compressible particles in the colloid instead of hard ones.This makes the particles squeeze together as more particles are added, makingthem flow more slowly, but delaying the point at which it solidifies, giving ita more glasslike behavior.By varying the colloidal particles’ stiffness, researcherscan vary the colloidal behavior and improve the model’s faithfulness to variousglasses.“There’s this wealth of behavior in molecular glass and wenever saw this wealth of behavior in colloid particles,” Weitz said. “The factyou can visualize things gives you tremendous insight you can’t get withmolecular glass.”last_img read more

Plant Pruning

first_imgTo prune or not to prune, that is the question. Pruning is an important part of maintaining plant health and maximizing plant productivity. This is often a topic that brings fear and confusion, but pruning is, in fact, a beneficial and routine task.Ornamental plants in the home landscape are pruned for several reasons, including maintaining a desired size or shape; promoting healthy, vigorous growth, flowering or fruiting; and removing sections damaged by insects, disease or weather. Each plant in the landscape has its own growth habit and different requirements for pruning. Some shrubs have dwarf growth habits and may never require pruning, while vigorous, large-growing shrubs may require frequent pruning. Anyone can prune, but not everyone prunes properly.Improper pruning, or pruning at the wrong time of the year, can result in misshapen plants, reduced flowering or plants that are more likely to be damaged by insects, diseases or winter cold. Because flowering ornamentals form their flower buds at different times of year, pruning times must be adjusted accordingly.Many spring-flowering plants such as azalea, dogwood, forsythia, redbud and rhododendron set flower buds in the fall, so pruning during the fall or winter months eliminates or decreases their spring flower display.Plants that typically flower during the summer form flower buds on new growth and can be pruned during the winter with no effect on their flowering. However, sometimes plants may need to be pruned outside of these ideal windows to remove damaged or dead plant parts, to remove obstructions from windows or buildings, or to help stop the spread of diseases.As a general rule, plants that flower before May should be pruned after they bloom, while those that flower after May are considered summer-flowering and can be pruned just prior to spring growth.One exception to this rule is the oakleaf hydrangea, a summer-flowering shrub that forms flower buds the previous season.Another exception is late-flowering azalea cultivars, which bloom during May, June or July. Prune both the oakleaf hydrangea and late-flowering azalea cultivars after they bloom. Newer azalea varieties like the ‘Encore’ line, which bloom in the spring, summer and fall, don’t require much pruning — if any at all — as long as they are planted in the right place. At most, you may need to prune taller shoots back into the body of the plant immediately after spring flowering. ‘Knock Out’ roses start flowering in spring up until frost, but should be pruned back to about 12 inches to the ground in early spring, after the threat of last frost has passed, to help stimulate vigorous growth throughout the season.Other types of plants, like broadleaf evergreen shrubs, generally require little or no pruning at all because they usually develop a naturally symmetric growth habit when left alone, but late winter when they are dormant is usually a good time if pruning is desired.Pruning is only harmful to a plant if done incorrectly or at the wrong time. With the right information and confidence, pruning should become a normal part of your landscape maintenance routine.To learn more about pruning ornamental plants, see University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Bulletin 961, “Pruning Ornamental Plants In The Landscape,” and Bulletin 949, “Basic Principles of Pruning Woody Plants,” which can be found at extension.uga.edu/publications.last_img read more

Board of Governors nominating petitions are due December 17

first_img Board of Governors nominating petitions are due December 17 N ominating petitions for the 2002 elections for the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar must be received in the headquarters office on or before 5 p.m., December 17. Most of the Board positions are for two-year terms. Executive Director John F. Harkness, Jr., on October 1 certified to Thomas D. Hall, clerk of the Supreme Court, the number of members of The Florida Bar in good standing in each of Florida’s 20 judicial circuits and outside the State of Florida, and the number of circuit representatives based on the apportionment formula set forth in rule 2-3.3, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. Application of the apportionment formula this time resulted in the shift of two seats currently in the 11th Judicial Circuit to the 15th and 20th judicial circuits, respectively. To properly stagger the terms within those circuits, the new 15th and 20th circuits seats will initially be for one-year terms. The loss of two seats in the 11th Circuit will mean that Seats 9 and 10 will no longer exist after June 21, 2002. Since Bar rules provide that no Board member shall serve less than the full term to which elected by reason of any reapportionment, Board member Arthur Rice will be allowed to fill out the remaining year of his term, which expires in June 2003. Pursuant to rule 2-3.4(b), incumbent Board members must advise the executive director of their intention to seek reelection to a new term. The seven Board members who do not plan to run again are indicated by an asterisk next to their names. Nominating petitions for the Board of Governors must be signed by no fewer than five members in good standing whose official bar address is in the same judicial circuit (or out-of-state, if applicable) as the nominee (see form below) or print the downloadable PDF form. Election ballots will be mailed on or about February 25, 2002, and voted ballots must be received prior to midnight, March 21, 2002.
