Scientists have succeeded in coupling an extremely small quantum dot with 1,000 times larger trumpet-shaped nanowire. The movement of the nanowire can be detected with a sensitivity of 100 femtometers via the wavelength of the light emitted by the quantum dot. Conversely, the oscillation of the nanowire can be influenced by excitation of the quantum dot with a laser. […] Read More
You know it all already. We are born, we eat, we live, we love, we fight, we die. We come from nothing and we return to nothing. It’s what happens in between that matters; and how we handle it, deal with our responsibilities and relationships to people and things make all the difference to the quality of our lives and the lives of the people and environment around us.
There are times in our lives when it’s easy to forget how connected everything is.

Call it being selfish – not because we want to be but because circumstances forces us to be.
That’s how the world got into the state that it’s in now. Here’s a neat 20 minute video that explains it all.
On this website I’ll be exploring and adding videos and articles that help to expand and explain the rich and diverse complexity of the world we live in – complex but not complicated.
