This week, Ace Magnetics introduces some brand new product lines to our store.  

Take a look at our new ceramic bracelets.  Made from the same advanced ceramics as computer components or cosmetic dentures, our ceramic bracelets are built to last and will never lose their polished look.  These bracelets are also scratch resistant.  

Shop at Ace Magnetics today to check out our new products.

Wired reports on an interesting astronomical phenomenon.  Images from the Hubble Space Telescope show that striking auroras appear at the magnetic poles of Ganymede, one of Jupiter's 63 moons.  Ganymede, which is larger than Pluto and which is only dwarfed by the eight planets and the sun in our solar system, is the only moon of Jupiter with its own strong magnetic field.  

The stellar light show, called 'auroral footprints' are caused by interactions with Jupiter's plasma as the moon orbits the planet.  Until the newest Hubble images, the size and exact reason behind the footprints was unclear.

“By analyzing the exact locations of these features and how their shape and brightness changes as Io and Gaynmede move in their orbit around Jupiter," says astrophysicist Denis Grodent from the University of Liege, "we have created the most detailed picture to date of how Jupiter and these moons are electromagnetically interconnected.”

Ace Magnetics has been active on Facebook and Twitter since the beginning of the summer, and if you aren't in touch with us there already, we want to invite you to join us formally.  The social web is a great new way to stay in contact with our customers, and in turn for you to keep us informed.  We're looking forward to hearing from you.

On Twitter, we share fun links about magnetism and the science of magnets (just like we do on our blog) and talk to other users about magnetic therapy.  If you are unfamiliar with Twitter, it's a website that allows you to 'microblog' or to send 140-character messages that your friends (called 'followers') can see and respond to.

Our store also has a page on Facebook.  If you like shopping with us, go and become a fan of Ace Magnetics.  It's another convenient way for you to get in touch with us and we'll give you the inside scoop on special Facebook-only deals and offers.  

If you like our products and our committment to quality service, take a few minutes and connect with us online.  We really appreciate it!

According to a pair of papers published in Science, researchers may have discovered the existence of a magnetic monopole.  According to the papers, spin ice crystals appear to exhibit tiny north magnetic points and separate south points.

The idea of a magnetic monopole has existed only as a hypothesis since Maxwell's work on magnetism in the 1860s, however inconclusive research over the intervening years has led many to posit that they do not actually exist. Since the 1930s, scientists have theorized that the discovery of monopoles could lead to a greater understanding of the quantization of electric charge.

Spin ices themselves are another thing that science couldn't prove until not too long ago (1997, to be exact).  The crystals contain 'spins', magnetic moments arranged on a tetrahedral lattice.  When spin ices become excited, the north and south moments appear to behave independently of one another as monopoles.  With further research, these monopoles could lead to advances in electric circuit design and the creation of magnetic memory.

Copper

Overview:

Copper is a mineral found in trace amounts in all tissues in the body. Although only a small amount is needed, copper is an essential nutrient that plays a role in the production of hemoglobin (the main iron component of red blood cells), myelin (the substance that surrounds nerve fibers), collagen (a key component of bones and connective tissue), and melanin (a dark pigment that colors the hair and skin). Copper also works with vitamin C to help make a component of connective tissue known as elastin.

Copper can act as both an antioxidant and a pro-oxidant. As an antioxidant, it scavenges damaging particles in the body known as free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally in the body and can damage cell walls, interact with genetic material, and possibly contribute to the aging process as well as the development of a number of health conditions. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause.

When copper acts as a pro-oxidant at times, it promotes free radical damage and may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease and, possibly, cervical dysplasia (precancerous lesions of the cervix which forms the opening to the uterus).
