Wolfe Systems asks you to take a moment for WORLD BRAIN TUMOUR DAY

This is a special day for some people at WOLFE SYSTEMS. It is a day that pays tribute to all brain tumour patients and their families.  We remember the ones we lost, celebrate the ones who survived, and inspire the ones who fight this dark and hidden disease

 

Brain tumours occur when the cells in the brain multiply in an abnormal way or a way that cannot be controlled. The tumour can be malignant, meaning it is cancerous, or it can be non-cancerous (benign). The tumours are graded from 1 to 4 and this depends on their location, how fast the cells are multiplying and the spread to adjacent areas or organs.

 

Getting involved in an event is great way to support and help fund brain cancer research in Australia. Find an event in your town by visiting Cure Brain Cancer Foundation

The Galaxy DLA0817g Or Wolfe Disk Shares Our Name So We Thought We Would Tell You More About It , As It Just Rewrote the Universe’s Timeline

A Mysterious Ancient Galaxy Just Rewrote the Universe’s Timeline

A disk galaxy in the early universe, just 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang, somehow formed during a time of chaotic cosmic conditions.

The galaxy we live in, the Milky Way, sports a rotating disk that extends across 100,000 light-years and contains billions of stars and planets. Scientists have estimated that this level of galactic girth, which is the signature of disk galaxies like the Milky Way, must take about six billion years to amass.

That assumption has been upended by unprecedented observations of a galaxy that evolved a rotating disk just 1.5 billion years after the birth of the universe, challenging our understanding of the timeline of the formation of galaxies like our own.

Known officially as DLA0817g and informally as the Wolfe Disk, this ancient and distant object sheds new light on the “open question in galaxy evolution” about “the epoch at which disk galaxies like our Milky Way formed,” according to a study published on Wednesday in Nature.

“Massive disk galaxies like the Milky Way are expected to form at late times in traditional models of galaxy formation,” notes the study, which was led by Marcel Neeleman, a cosmologist at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Germany.

The presence of the disk galaxy in the early universe is unexpected because, as Neeleman noted in a statement, most galaxies in the early universe “look like train wrecks” because they are constantly absorbing clouds of hot gas that destabilize the disk. Models suggest that over a period of several billion years, this gas cools down, allowing the formation of a regular rotating disk, like the one Earth is currently situated in.

That said, “recent numerical simulations suggest that such galaxies could form as early as a billion years after the Big Bang through the accretion of cold material and mergers,” according to the new study, though it also notes that “observationally, it has been difficult to identify disk galaxies [in the early universe] in order to discern between competing models of galaxy formation.”

Neeleman led the team that first discovered the Wolfe Disk a few years ago, with the help of the late astrophysicist Arthur Wolfe, for whom the galaxy is nicknamed. The team was able to spot this rare sight thanks to an extremely bright galaxy located behind it, from our perspective on Earth, which backlit the gas and dust around the Wolfe Disk.

The results confirmed that the object really is a disk galaxy, and constrained some of its key properties. For instance, the team clocked the rotation speed of the disk at around 170 miles (272 kilometers) per second, a similar clip to the Milky Way.

However, given that we are looking at this galaxy as it was some 11 billion years ago, it is understandably a lot smaller than the Milky Way. Whereas our galaxy may top the scales at over a trillion times as massive as the Sun, the Wolfe Disk—as we see it in the early universe—is about 72 billion times as massive as the Sun.

Though the Wolfe Disk may have evolved into a much larger galaxy by now, our view of it in the early universe is still unexpectedly big and stable for that era. Its existence suggests that a popular model of galaxy formation, which the study calls the “hot-mode accretion scenario,” may not be giving scientists the full picture of how galaxies form and evolve.

New Website for Giuntini Chiropractic

It was a great pleasure to build the new Giuntini Chiropractic website for Edna and Jeremy.  They run a family friendly clinic and specialize, and  want children to be comfortable when they visit.  They have done this by providing a play area with books, puzzles and a play kitchen to keep children entertained and happy.  Edna and Jeremy also have a Therapy Dog, named Fluffy who provides cuddles and play time for the whole family.  Any mums who are breastfeeding, or bottle feeding, are encouraged to stay and feed their babies if necessary.  They even have a change area for those in nappies who might need to freshen up.

If you or your family are in need of some chiropractic care, please visit Giuntini Chiropractic.  You will be glad you did!

Get down to The Spaniard!

Now I must admit, I did like the client meetings at The Spaniard.  They have an amazing menu and the cocktails…. Well, let’s just say I sampled a few (try the gingerbread martini). They have the most delicious Spanish tapas, play inviting music and have the most friendly staff that I have come across.

The Spaniard take bookings, are good for groups or parties, and walk-ins are always welcome. They are open for Lunch, Dinner and Drinks.
