“Curiosity was the main driving force for me.” The developer of the first commercially viable lithium-ion battery, Akira Yoshino, has become the 27th Japanese Nobel Laureate.
Yoshino shared the 2019 Chemistry Prize together with John Goodenough and Stanley Whittingham "for the development of lithium-ion batteries." Akira Yoshino was born in 1948 in Suita, Japan. He acquired a business and master's degree at Kyoto University before obtaining his doctor's degree at Osaka University. He is currently an honorary fellow at Asahi Kasei Corporation, Tokyo, Japan and professor at Meijo University, Nagoya, Japan. Photo: Asahi Kasei.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham and Akira Yoshino “for the development of lithium-ion batteries.” Lithium-ion batteries are used globally to power the portable electronics that we use to communicate, work, study, listen to music and search for knowledge. Lithium-ion batteries have also enabled the development of long-range electric cars and the storage of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind power.
In the early 1970s, Stanley Whittingham used lithium’s enormous drive to release its outer electron when he developed the first functional lithium battery. In 1980, John Goodenough doubled the battery’s potential, creating the right conditions for a vastly more powerful and useful battery. In 1985, Akira Yoshino succeeded in eliminating pure lithium from the battery, instead basing it wholly on lithium ions, which are safer than pure lithium. This made the battery workable in practice.
Lithium-ion batteries have revolutionised our lives since they first entered the market in 1991. They have laid the foundation of a wireless, fossil fuel-free society, and are of the greatest benefit to humankind.
When your face doesn’t catch up to the realization of what is actually happening. 280 lbs + and 18’ long. This female Anaconda will always be a big part of my past, present, and future. All I can hope is that she’s still out there slithering through the swamps and rivers of the lowland Amazon birthing the next generation of Anacondas to rule the jungle. 📸: @gowrivaranashi
@wildbirdresearch kicked off the first night of #Owl research, we had two Eastern Screech Owls, and our first Northern Saw-whet Owl, which is our target species, and most likely makes us the farthest southern research station to get them so far. We’re back at it again tonight at the second research location, hopefully with more of our target species. To see our first Saw-whet of the year head to @wildbirdresearch. @nj_naturalist and I had our busiest day ever of bird research, with over 120 fall migrants caught this morning, more about that tomorrow on here and @wildbirdresearch

Tonight kicks off the opening night of @wildbirdresearch#Owl research. Fingers crossed we begin the first night with Owls, but it is early. Some more Owl related news, will be doing a joint fundraiser with @nature_nj hosted by @sourlandspirits called the Hootenanny, on November 2nd. This will be a fundraising event to help fund a new research site with the @nature_org, more transmitters for our tracking studies, and our new internship fund. If you’re interested in a fun night all about Owls, take a look at the link in my bio or story. It’s gonna be a great event with @nature_nj and @sourlandspirits.
Giant Armadillos (Priodontes maximus) are magnificent creatures - they can be over 70 pounds when full grown. GARMs are a vulnerable species by IUCN standards, but populations are declining and there is not in-place research and monitoring or species management occurring. We hope our data collected from Las Piedras can shed some light on the threats and vulnerabilities of this species to support such planning for the future 🍃

Amanda Elias Class of 2015
After attending PC, she graduated from UCLA this past Spring with a Bachelor of Science in General Biology, with an emphasis in Molecular Biology. She is currently a research assistant in the top orthopedic research lab at UCLA. One of their biggest projects is that they are working on inventing a new mouthguard for athletes that can effectively screen for any signs of sports related concussions. She is also excited to continue working as a medical scribe for a private practice, and is an sports assistant for the athletic department at UCLA. She will first be pursing a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Sciences, and then continue on to PA school to become an orthopedic PA, specializing in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery. She is infinitely grateful to her time at PC for giving her the confidence and foundation to pursue all of her goals! 💛 #pomonacatholic#pcalumna#biology#research#ucla#empowerment#scholar#saluditorian#sisterhood#pcproud#homecoming2019
October 13th is #InternationalSkepticsDay, but don’t take my word for it! Today is a time to bring a healthy dose of #doubt to claims made by family, friends, colleagues or even strangers. Is that really the right answer? Could it be done better? For all of you #skeptics out there, I encourage you to do your own #research, solve a #mystery or maybe watch some @MythBusters! Who knows what you’ll #discover? @sellingsacredground
Am I writing a YA novel or an undergraduate history thesis? Hard to tell these days, based on my reading list.
Here’s REPRESENTING JUSTICE by Judith Resnick and Dennis Curtis. It’s actually pretty readable for a book that contains over 200 pages of footnotes. 😅
Read if: you want a really, really deep dive into the various ways justice has been symbolized.
Matte paintings and taxidermy. These dioramas were amazing, even if the museum and its artifacts aren't problematic. The three dimensional forms collapses against the two dimensional backdrops, but framed by the plane of the glass enclosure. I could look all day. Details in the grasses, the dirt, trees, and small animals hidden amongst it all really brings these scenes up to that uncanny level.
