Pulse-Doppler Radar: Meteorological Application

Abstract The radar (a term derived from the English acronym “radio detection and ranging”) is a system that uses electromagnetic waves to measure distances, altitudes, directions and speeds of static or mobile objects such as aircraft, ships, motorized vehicles, meteorological formations and the terrain itself. This paper addresses the meteorological application of the pulse-Doppler radar. A proper review and description of the use and effects of this device will be made. Keywords: Pulse-Doppler radar, Doppler Effect, weather, meteorology.

Louis Pasteur: A biographic essay

Louis Pasteur: A biographic essay Since the time of Hippocrates, diseases had been attributed to abstract imbalances of the internal humors of the human body. It was not until the 19th century that, thanks to brilliant researchers such as Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch, that the theory of the microbial origin of infectious diseases was firmly established, according to which these are caused by pathogenic environmental germs that change the healthy body. The determination of the concrete and safe causes of a wide range of afflictions supposed the beginning of the current scientific medicine. Louis Pasteur was a French chemist and bacteriologist, often labeled as “father of modern hygiene, public health and much of modern medicine, as well as the father of microbiology and immunology” (Ligon 2002:134).

Burkitt’s lymphoma

Also called Burkkit cell leukemia, it is an uncommon type of monoclonal B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Johnston et. al, 2012) that is rare in the United States, but is endemic in equatorial Africa, Brazil, and Papua New Guinea. This rare disease is associated with Epstein-Barr virus and “was one of the first tumors shown to have a chromosomal translocation that activates an oncogene (c-MYC)” (Molyneux et. al, 2012). It is the fastest growing human tumor. It is more common in men (both children and adults) and in patients with HIV / AIDS.

Soccer articles.

Some sports articles that I did while working at Soccity.net, a soccer news-portal!

Soccity

Serie A: “Derbi della MadoChina”, Giuseppe Meazza, and more China talk

Inter vs. Milan. The match known as “Derbi della Madoninna“, (or, if you want to stick more to the actual reality, “Derbi della MadoChina“, as you can read in some angry Italian tweets) became yesterday the first confrontation between the old Italian giants in the “new football” era. With the Chinese owners sitting in the stands, and with a repeat of the goal-line technology to define the last goal. We had a warning of a future that is not too far away.

La Liga: An inspired Messi leads Barcelona to Clasico win against a bulldozing Real Madrid

They say that football is a state of mind. Real Madrid arrived to its field as a solid leader, happy to have qualified for the semifinals of the Champions League; Barça came in feeling a sense of depression, having recently been eliminated against Juve. But this is a sport of players, and Leo Messi came with a determination to tell the world that he is the best player in the world and that this league is pretty much alive.

Mbappé’s night shadowed by a stubborn Higuaín as Juventus look to conquer Europe

Gónzalo Higuaín seemed tired, overloaded and clumsy. Didn’t come to the ball. Didn’t connect with the passes. He stumbled. Sweat dripped from his hair and face contracted by the nerves. He looked like a poor striker in those early minutes of the game in which, on the other side of the field, dazzled a serene Kylian Mbappé. Without perspiring. No blinking. Impassable between explosions of power and skill that baffled Bonucci, Chiellini and Barzagli, three of the most expert defenders in the world.

E-commerce/business and tech articles...

Some of the work I did for AiHello, an e-commerce and tech-blog.

The Power of Experiences

One of the recurring things in studies is that consumers are now looking for different relationships with companies. That they also expect them to offer different content, different actions and establish links. All this based on different things from those used in the past. In the language of brand strategy, new words, such as feelings, emotions, and experiences, have begun to appear more and more persistently.

Is free shipping a big lie?

One of the first lessons learned about e-commerce is that consumers are not willing at all to pay for receiving the products they buy. Free shipments are one of the reasons why consumers decide to stay with one e-commerce firm and not another one of the causes that explain the success of one company over another. Consumers have begun to demand that the things they receive are received for free and have made shipments one of the key pieces of the e-commerce puzzle.

And of course, some travel/lifestyle articles!

And this is the work I did for Wikinomad, a blog for backpackers!
