If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Dissolving Quantum Paradoxes
The impossibility of building a perfect clock could help explain away microscale weirdness.

Constructing a Theory of Life
An all-encompassing framework of physics could help to explain the evolution of consciousness, intelligence, and free will.

Usurping Quantum Theory
The search is on for a fundamental framework that allows for even stranger links between particles than quantum theory—which could lead us to a theory of everything.

Fuzzballs v Black Holes
A radical theory replaces the cosmic crunchers with fuzzy quantum spheres, potentially solving the black-hole information paradox and explaining away the Big Bang and the origin of time.

It's been a while since my last post and the number one rule of blogging is never to apologise for your absence. On the other hand, since fqxi is all about breaking the rules I'll say that I'm sorry, but I have the excuse that there were good quantum foundational reasons for my absence.

Firstly, there is a month long series of workshops in Waterloo going on at the moment under the banner Taming The Quantum World. Last week we had a very interesting one organized by Paul Busch and Lucien Hardy entitled Operational Quantum Physics and the Quantum-Classical Contrast. You can find recordings of the talks here. Last time I checked the audio wasn't working, but hopefully that will be fixed soon.

What I liked most about this workshop was that it somehow managed to avoid the usual arguments about interpretations, i.e. which one is correct, that are often found at such meetings. Instead, it focussed on three main areas, all of which are becoming increasingly interesting to me:

- How to properly account for the emergence of apparent classicality from quantum theory.

- The relationship between quantum mechanics and causality.

- The relationship between quantum theory and information processing.

I highly recommend looking at some of the talks if you are interested in any of these areas.

The second major distraction was that a couple of weeks ago Lucien Hardy asked me to help with the assesment of the applications that we received for the Quantum Foundations Summer School to be held here this August. I am not sure I would have agreed if I had realized that there were over 350 applications to sort through! Many of them came from students in high energy and condensed matter physics, and not just from closely allied fields that traditionally worry about foundational issues, e.g. quantum cosmology. OK, so we did a good advertising campaign, but nevertheless this seems to be another piece of evidence that foundational research is gradually gaining credibility in the mainstream. I'd like to know if other people have the same impression, or if it's simply because I'm looking from the vantage point of an institute that cares deeply about foundational questions.

Obat kencing nanah dengan antibiotik

Berikut beberapa macam obat kencing nanah berupa antibiotik yang digunakan untuk menyembuhkan gonore.obat kencing nanah

Ceftriaxone (rocephin). Antibiotik ini digunakan secara bersamaan dengan azithromycin untuk menghambat pertumbuhan dinding sel bakteri yang sudah mencapai darah.

Azithromycin (zithromax, zmax). Antibiotik ini digunakan untuk menghambat pertumbuhan bakteri.

Cefixime dan sefalosporin. Antibiotik ini digunakan sebagai pengganti bila ceftriaxone tidak tersedia. Obat ini menghambat sintesis dinding sel bakteri dan digunakan bersamaan dengan azithromycin. Keduanya digunakan bila pasien tidak memiliki komplikasi.

Doxycycline. Antibiotik ini menghambat sintesis protein yang dapat memicu pertumbuhan bakteri. Doxycycline digunakan selama 10 sampai 14 hari dengan dosis 100 mg sebagai tambahan dosis tunggal cetriaxone untuk mengobati radang panggul (PID).

Erythromycin. Obat salep tetes antibiotik yang direkomendasikan untuk digunakan pada bayi yang baru lahir untuk mencegah penyakit konjungtivitis (radang konjungtiva mata) gonore.

Bila Anda diberi satu dosis antibiotik, pastikan untuk menggunakan antibiotik sesuai dengan saran dokter. Melewatkan dosis atau tidak minum obat dengan lengkap akan membuat infeksi gonore tidak dapat sembuh. Pasien yang merasakan gejalanya tidak membaik bisa disebabkan oleh infeksi gonore lain atau kegagalan pengobatan. Kemungkinan bakteri tertentu dari gonore telah menjadi kebal pada antibiotik sehingga tidak dapat lagi dibunuh oleh antibiotik tersebut. Jadi, pasien memerlukan antibiotik lain untuk menyembuhkan infeksi.

Beberapa orang yang menderita gonore juga bisa terkena klamidia. Oleh karena itu, pengobatan gonore juga mencakup antibiotik yang efektif dalam mengobati klamidia.
