Her life jacket was later found, but there was still no sign of her.Adults were in the boat at the time of the accident.San Diego lifeguard Lt. Rich Stropky said that the boat was not operating under its own power when it happened, and was drifting with the waves and wind.Rescue efforts were halted around sunset as conditions it became too dark for divers to safely continue.The lake has clearer water than most, a help for search crews, but it also has a lot of underwater debris, Stropky said.“There’s big huge rocks you can get snagged on, and there’s lots of trees and branches and that makes this type of thing always dangerous,” he said.Search crews were back in the water after daybreak Sunday, and the lake will be closed for recreation Sunday to aid in the recovery, according to Foster.Lifeguards spoke to the boat operator and were able to narrow down a location to restart the search using SONAR, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue spokeswoman Monica Munoz.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold takes the form of a book, with its largest screen on the inside, protected by the outer “cover.” Except in this case, one of the “covers” has a screen on it. Huawei takes the opposite approach, with the screen hugging the frame. The advantage here is that you have one screen that can act like three, depending on how you hold the phone.  Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 512GB 8GB Comments Can Motorola’s Razr top Galaxy Fold by going smaller?

The Mate X’s 8-inch display is notch-free, but it does have a strip on the back where the cameras line up, and a curved “wing” that serves as a handhold. I got a chance to open and close the Mate X, and I think this wing is a clever design workaround that makes sense. It seemed to mostly work as a grip, though it isn’t a comfy handle, but it does help stabilize the device when it’s opened up in tablet form, making it easier to hold without cropping the sides. 2,299 euros, converts to $2,600, £2,000 or AU$3,660 29 Power button Power button Processor Samsung Galaxy Fold Now playing: Watch this: News • Huawei P30 Pro in a gorgeous orange finish leaks Mentioned Above Huawei P30 (128GB, black) • Time for a state of the union on foldable phones.

Scientists create purplewinged butterflies in six generations

first_imgThe team says engineers could use these findings when designing devices that tune color, trap light or steer light beams. Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences When the researchers examined the wings that had changed color, they discovered that the thickness of some of the scales had changed. This altered the wavelengths of light the wings reflected. They studied the wings of B. sambulos and B. medontias, which naturally have wings that reflect violet light, and found that some of their wing scales were similar in thickness to those that had changed in the purple-winged B. anynana. However, the types of scales that reflected violet light in B. sambulos and B. medontias were different from the type of scale that had changed in B. anynana.Monteiro’s team believe their experiment shows that butterfly wing colors can evolve very quickly and that natural selection could play an important role in the development of wing color. For example, butterflies could use wing color to identify other butterflies of the same species or to influence mate choice. Explore further (Phys.org) —Scientists have used selective breeding to create purple wings on the normally brown-winged butterfly Bicyclus anynana. Antonia Monteiro and her colleagues selected butterflies with wing scales that reflected light closest to the wavelengths that produce the color violet and bred them. After six generation of breeding, the researchers produced butterflies with wings that had changed structurally to reflect violet light. The research appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Credit: Antónia Monteiro More information: Artificial selection for structural color on butterfly wings and comparison with natural evolution, PNAS, Bethany R. Wasik, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1402770111AbstractBrilliant animal colors often are produced from light interacting with intricate nano-morphologies present in biological materials such as butterfly wing scales. Surveys across widely divergent butterfly species have identified multiple mechanisms of structural color production; however, little is known about how these colors evolved. Here, we examine how closely related species and populations of Bicyclus butterflies have evolved violet structural color from brown-pigmented ancestors with UV structural color. We used artificial selection on a laboratory model butterfly, B. anynana, to evolve violet scales from UV brown scales and compared the mechanism of violet color production with that of two other Bicyclus species, Bicyclus sambulos and Bicyclus medontias, which have evolved violet/blue scales independently via natural selection. The UV reflectance peak of B. anynana brown scales shifted to violet over six generations of artificial selection (i.e., in less than 1 y) as the result of an increase in the thickness of the lower lamina in ground scales. Similar scale structures and the same mechanism for producing violet/blue structural colors were found in the other Bicyclus species. This work shows that populations harbor large amounts of standing genetic variation that can lead to rapid evolution of scales’ structural color via slight modifications to the scales’ physical dimensions. The butterfly Bicyclus medontias displays violet-colored wing scales that evolved through natural selection. Credit: Antónia Monteiro Living things can produce color chemically or structurally. Those that produce chemical color create pigments that absorb certain wavelengths of light and reflect others. Organisms that produce structural color experience changes in their bodies, at the nanoscale level, that enhance the reflection of particular wavelengths.Butterfly wings have structural color. To understand how this color evolves, Monteiro and her team selectively bred B. anynana, a butterfly that normally has brown wings, in an attempt to create purple wings. Two close relatives of this butterfly, B. sambulos and B. medontias, have purple scales on the backs of their front wings. However, until now, no one has ever reported seeing any purple-winged B. anynana.To create purple wings, the team measured the wavelengths of light reflected from the wings of B. anynana specimens. They then selected and bred those butterflies whose wings reflected light closest to the violet spectrum. They performed this process six times in eight consecutive generations. As the breeding process continued, reflected wavelengths moved further toward the violet spectrum. By the sixth time, the butterflies had purple wings. © 2014 Phys.org This document is subject to copyright.

Pay raises begin to decline once an employee as more than 20 years’ experience under their belt. The highest paid financial directors live in San Francisco, Houston, Los Angeles and New York City.Educational RequirementsA minimum of a BA is necessary to break into this field, but an MBA/CPA or related degree is ideal, along with at least seven to 10 years of overall professional experience with six-plus years of broad financial and operations management experience. MBA should look into pursuing Finance MBAs or concentrations in finance to get even more insight and in-depth knowledge of the field.You can find Finance MBAs at many top business schools, including ones in the San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and London metros.What about a Master’s in Finance? We recently compared MBAs in Finance and a Masters in Finance and found that an MBAs offer a wider range of choices for their career post-graduation. They can seek a variety of different positions within the finance field and outside of the field.“The MBA, particularly those from elite schools, offer something else—exit options,” according to eFinancialCareers. “A lot of people take MBAs with the aim of advancing their finance career, but end up moving into another sector entirely, particularly if they attend an elite school where a range of employers swoop on MBA candidates during various networking and recruitment events. An MBA offers that unrivaled diversity of career options.” The finance industry is among the most popular destinations for MBAs to seek employment following graduation—finance and accounting make up 22 percent of all MBA jobs and more than 84 percent of finance and accounting firms planned on hiring MBA graduates in 2016.What type of jobs are available?
