Whether she was attending a charity event to raise awareness of those in need, donating her clothes and time to charity auctions or supporting initiatives aimed at making a positive impact on the world, Peaches Geldof was at the forefront of philanthropy in the UK, one of the young stars who genuinely wanted to use their fame to make a difference.A mother, animal lover and daughter of Bob Geldof, Peaches passed away on Monday, April 7.Peaches was never far away from the coal face of charity – a trait her father was proud of.“She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us,” said Sir Bob in a statement. “Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever.”A model and TV presenter, Peaches Geldof supported a number of charity campaigns, including Bottletop – an initiative that creates exquisite fashion items out of recycled bottle tops to benefit the health and well-being of young people world-wide – as well as the Environmental Justice Foundation’s Pick Your Cotton Carefully campaign to clean up the cotton industry and bring fair trade to cotton producers in third world countries.“I think that philanthropy in any way is a good idea,” said Peaches. “Any charity that raises awareness for people who are impoverished is obviously a good thing.”Peaches regularly donated her iconic fashion items to auctions raising money for those in need, and let her own dresses be hired out for charity campaigns. In 2009 she let a group of elderly women from second-hand clothing stores give her a makeover to raise awareness of the work of charity shops.“I want to be a good wife, a good mother, a good person,” she once said.Peaches will be missed by all those who knew her and looked up to her.Copyright ©2014Look to the Stars

© 2015 Phys.org A research team from the University of Illinois and colleagues in China found earth’s inner core has an inner core of its own, with crystals aligned in a different direction. Credit: Lachina Publishing Services In other news it was recently noted that some researchers are using the DOE’s Fermilab Dark Energy Camera to unveil small objects in our solar system—the 570-megapixel camera is being used by some to track space junk, asteroids and other objects. Also a team of geologists described how they are attempting to unlock the mysteries of the planet’s inner core by applying a novel application of earthquake reading technology and have found that our planet’s inner core itself has an inner core, too.In other news, the world’s first rotary 3-D printer-cum-scanner was unveiled at the AAAS meeting—called the Blacksmith Genesis, it allows novices to scan an item, edit it and then print it. Also another team of researchers found that coral snake venom revealed a unique route to lethality—turns out it is a toxin that activates a certain kind of nerve cell protein that prevents cells in victims from resetting and ultimately leads to seizures in prey. And yet another team found amber fossil links to the earliest grasses, dinosaurs and fungus used to produce LSD—in Myanmar. Another team has found that a common plant extract fights brain tumors—silibinin, used to treat victims of poisoning and some liver diseases has been shown to be effective in treating Cushing’s Disease, where a tumor grows in the pituitary gland.And finally, if you have been taking medications to get rid of an infection, it might interest you to know that a team of researchers has found that the unwanted impact of antibiotics is broader and more complex than previously known—they found that the drugs have a much bigger impact on the microorganisms that live in our gut, than has been thought, further complicating their use.

(Phys.org)—It was an intriguing week for physics as a pair of theorists suggested that their quantum equation predicts the universe has no beginning and thus there was no Big Bang. In their paper published in Physics Letters B, Saurya Das and Rajat Bhaduri, suggest their math shows that the universe has existed forever and that it may also account for both dark energy and dark matter. Also, some at this year’s American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting have been hinting at the possible discovery in 2015 of a new particle in physics—due, they suggest, to the LHC coming back online, twice as powerful as before. Meanwhile, another group suggested that on quantum scales, there are many second laws of thermodynamics—they think there are whole families of them at extremely small scales.

Taking her passion for music a step forward, actress-singer Sarah Jane Dias is learning the acoustic guitar to hone her musical skills. “I always had a nag to learn an instrument since my childhood. However, I never got to do so… I believe that learning of any kind of music…be it instrumental or vocal… enhances your ability as an artist,” Sarah Jane said in a statement. She is taking vocal lessons from Samantha Edward and instrument from a Parsi musician. The former Miss India, who released her first single Forgot to be me on Valentine’s Day this year, shared that she is an ‘obedient student’. “I’m very happy to have found someone who has learnt the art of acoustic guitar from the golden era of guitar. I’m an obedient student,” she added.
