Осторожно: бабушка


Намедни прочитал на одном музыкальном портале, что лучшей негритянской певице сегодня исполняется 75. Кто же это? Ма Рейни? Неужели Бесси Смит? Ида Кокс? Или по справедливости Элла Фицджеральд? Министр культуры Мединский настаивает, что это Лариса Долина, но Владимир Ростиславович склоненн к преувеличениям: тонкая натура.

Увы и ах, 75 лет сегодня вечно молодой, но плохо сохранившейся Тине Тёрнер (ака Anna Mae Bullock). Забавно, но "тёрнер" переводится с басурманского как "токарь" (второе значение "гимнаст" уже не актуально). Тина Токарь с голосом простуженной пилорамы с такой неарийской фамилией неплохо смотрелась бы где-нибудь в Хайфе, но даме по фамилии Тёрнер не повезло стать токарем. Так что никаких ад мэа вэ эсрим, только хэппибёсдей.

Paying Caesars Things Back To Caesar

Delivery Company | IL, USA

Customer: “Have you accepted Jesus as your personal savior?”

Me: “Nope. Your total is $7.00.”

Customer: “I don’t pay non-believers.”

Me: “Well, it’s a good thing you’re paying [Delivery Company], then.”

Customer: “Do you know any commandments, you Satan worshipper?”

Me: “Thou Shalt Not Steal. Seven dollars, please.”

(Then he threw a $10 on the counter and left. Three bucks for Satan!)

A Tetraphenylethylene Core-Based 3D Structure Small Molecular Acceptor Enabling Efficient Non-Fullerene Organic Solar Cells

A tetraphenylethylene core-based small molecular acceptor with a unique 3D molecular structure is developed. Bulk-hetero­jucntion blend films with a small feature size (≈20 nm) are obtained, which lead to non-fullerene organic solar cells (OSCs) with 5.5% power conversion efficiency. The work provides a new molecular design approach to efficient non-fullerene OSCs based on 3D-structured small-molecule acceptors.

Enantioselective Oxidative Gold Catalysis Enabled by a Designed Chiral P,N-Bidentate Ligand

by Kegong Ji, Zhitong Zheng, Zhixun Wang, Liming Zhang

Abstract

A newly developed P,N-bidentate ligand enables enantioselective intramolecular cyclopropanation by a reactive α-oxo gold carbene intermediate generated in situ. The ligand design is based on our previously proposed structure (with a well-organized triscoordinated gold center) of the carbene intermediate in the presence of a P,N-bidentate ligand. A C2-symmetric piperidine ring was incorporated in the ligand as the nitrogen-containing moiety. A range of racemic transformations of α-oxo gold carbene intermediates have been developed recently, and this new class of chiral ligands could enable their modification for asymmetric synthesis, as demonstrated in this study.

‘Electric Love’, An Animated ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Music Video Featuring a Love Story Between Thomas Edison and an Elephant

by Rollin Bishop

“Electric Love” is an animated music video for the television show Bob’s Burgers that features Stephin Merritt and Kenny Mellman singing a love song about inventor Thomas Edison and an elephant named Topsy–which the show alleges Edison had electrocuted, but the actual history of the event is a bit more complicated. The video is part of a series of animated music videos featuring songs from the show being covered by other artists.

The song was originally performed by the characters Mr. Fischoeder (as Edison) and Gayle (as Topsy) with Gene and Tina acting out the voices as part of the third season episode “Topsy”, which aired in the United States on March 10, 2013.
