¿Qué es la malaria?

¿Qué es la malaria?     La Malaria es una enfermedad parasitaria que involucra fiebres altas, escalofríos, síntomas seudogripales y anemia. Causas La malaria o paludismo es causada por un parásito que se transmite a los humanos a través de la picadura de mosquitos anofeles infectados. Después de la infección, los parásitos (llamados esporozoítos) viajan a través del torrente sanguíneo hasta el hígado, donde maduran y producen otra forma, llamada merozoítos. Los parásitos ingresan en el torrente sanguíneo e infectan a los glóbulos rojos. Los parásitos se multiplican dentro de los glóbulos rojos, los cuales se rompen al cabo de 48 a 72 horas, infectando más glóbulos rojos. Los primeros síntomas se presentan por lo general de 10 días a 4 semanas después de la infección, aunque pueden aparecer incluso a los 8 días o hasta 1 año después de esta. Los síntomas ocurren en ciclos de 48 a 72 horas. La mayoría de los síntomas son causados por: La liberación de merozoítos en el torrente sanguíneo Anemia resultante de la destrucción de glóbulos rojos Grandes cantidades de hemoglobina libre liberada en la circulación luego de la ruptura de los glóbulos rojos Mostrar detalle

Polynomials evaluated at integers by John D. Cook

Polynomials evaluated at integers by  John D.  Cook     Let p(x) = a0 + a1x + a2x2 + … + anxn and suppose at least one of the coefficients ai is irrational for some i ≥ 1. Then a theorem by Weyl says that the fractional parts of p(n) are equidistributed as n varies over the integers. That is, the proportion of values that land in some interval is equal to the length of that interval. Clearly it’s necessary that one of the coefficients be irrational. What may be surprising is that it is sufficient. If the coefficients are all rational with common denominator N, then the sequence would only contain multiples of 1/N. The interval [1/3N, 2/3N], for example, would never get a sample. If a0 were irrational but the rest of the coefficients were rational, we’d have the same situation, simply shifted by a0. This is a theorem about what happens in the limit, but we can look at what happens for some large but finite set of terms. And we can use a χ2 test to see how evenly our sequence is compared to what one would expect from a random sequence. Mostrar detalle

SEC Regulation And Aftermath: Crypto Currency Regulation Gains Traction Around The Globe

SEC Regulation And 
Aftermath: Crypto Currency 
Regulation Gains Traction 
Around The Globe     An ICO (Initial Coin Offerings) is when a new crypto currency token is offered for sale to the public. ICOs can be compared to the Initial Public Offering (IPO) in the stock market. ICOs were often referred to as the ‘Wild West’ due to their utter lack of regulation. But the crackdown has finally begun! Everything seems to be changing, ever since the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) stepped in last month. The SEC, DAO, and ICOs: What Transpired? The DAO was created by Slock.it and was built on top of the Ethereum blockchain. Its token offering was a huge success. DAO offered and sold nearly 1.15 billion DAO Tokens in exchange for a total of approximately 12 million Ether. DAO’s success prompted the creation of a wave of ICO activity. But things started to go south after the well- publicized DAO hack, wherein an attacker used a flaw in The DAO’s code to steal almost one- third of The DAO’s assets. This made the SEC stand up and take notice, leading to investigating whether The DAO, Slock.it UG, its co- founders, and intermediaries have violated the federal securities laws. Mostrar detalle

All New Oil And Gas Exploration To Be Banned

All New Oil And Gas Exploration To Be Banned     OEF Rapid Review France is to stop granting licences for oil and gas exploration as part of a transition towards environmentally-friendly energy. Nicolas Hulot, the “ecological transition” minister said a law would be passed in the autumn.​ ​ French President Emmanuel Macron said he was opposed to exploration for gas and favoured a ban on fracking during his election campaign, particularly in the overseas territory of French Guiana. Around 75 per cent of France’s electricity is currently provided by nuclear power stations… a law was passed last year, however, to reduce the nuclear proportion to 50 per cent by 2025.

Chancellor Merkel Encourages Spain & Portugal To Invest In Solar     German Chancellor Angela Merkel encouraged Spain and Portugal to invest more in solar energy and said they need a better link to France amid a push for a unified European power grid. Merkel’s government has promoted wind and solar energy as the country prepares for the closure of its last nuclear power stations in 2022. The European Union is aiming to break down national barriers for power, which could make supplies more secure and lower costs thanks to more trade across national borders. Mostrar detalle

Proceso de fabricación de billetes en México.

Proceso de fabricación de billetes en México.     Los billetes mexicanos se fabrican en la Fábrica de Billetes de Banco de México. El Banco también ordena la acuñación de las monedas mexicanas a la Casa de Moneda de México y pone a ambos en circulación por todo el territorio nacional. La Casa de Moneda de México es una institución del Gobierno Federal que depende de la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público. Para iniciar el proceso de fabricación, se debe conocer con anticipación la cantidad de billetes y monedas. Para ello, el Banco de México toma en cuenta las denominaciones que se requieren en todo el país, la cantidad de billetes y monedas que el público prefiere usar en lugar de otros medios de pago (cheques, tarjetas de débito, etc.), los costos de fabricación, y la cantidad de billetes que deben ser reemplazados. En el caso de las monedas, también resulta importante considerar el costo de los metales que se utilizan. La información sobre la cantidad de billetes y monedas que se pondrán a circular cada año, se da a conocer oportunamente tanto a la Fábrica de Billetes del Banco de México como a la Casa de Moneda de México para que programen sus actividades.
