Amazing Ancient Chinese Store Signs

In the old days, before Chinese stores got into cheap neon signs and large characters in ugly fonts, stores in China used 幌子 (huǎngzi

)to advertise and demonstrate what they sold. As the Capital Museum explained: “幌子 is the business logo of stores in old China, a strategy used to attract customers. They are made of paper, cloth, leather, bamboo, wood, copper, iron, tin, etc. The styles and patterns vary according to the store’s type and products.”

Eight allotropes of carbon: a) Diamond, b) Graphite, c)Lonsdaleite, d) C_{60}(Buckminsterfullerene or buckyball), e) C_{540}, f) C_{70}, g) Amorphous carbon, and h) single-walledcarbon nanotube or buckytube.Carbon is capable of forming many allotropes due to its valency. Well known forms of carbon include diamond and graphite. In recent decades many more allotropes and forms of carbon have been discovered and researched including ball shapes such asbuckminsterfullerene and sheets such as graphene. Larger scale structures of carbon include nanotubes, nanobuds and nanoribbons. Other unusual forms of carbon exist at very high temperature or extreme pressures.

2014 is UNESCO’s International Year of Crystallography - the science that has revealed the double-helix structure of DNA, improved medicine and was even used in the artwork of M. C. Escher.

The home of crystallography in Australia, ANSTO, has created a microsite that explains how the science works and how it’s being used in groundbreaking research today. Find out more:http://bit.ly/1q3Hi7N
