The lightning are electrical discharges of billion of watts produced in certain weather conditions and occur in microseconds. With the meteorologist Oscar Van der Veld from the UPC, Quèquicom pursues lightning during a storm with a high-speed camera. This procedure leads to study in detail the behavior of lightning and to measure their strong magnetic fields and the emission of X and gamma radiation. But how lightning are generated? It is explained in the studio by a model and a "virtual carpet" depicting the positively charged ground following the cloud until finally jumps the beam. The program also shows the plasma in a vacuum chamber and explanis that the light beam is the death certificate of the plasma, the fourth state of matter. In addition the technology, tries to “tame” lightning: the program visit a high technology factory of lightning rod and and a steel plant that uses plasma cutting.

Mariña és una comercial de 32 anys que, com a conseqüència de l'estrès ha d'anar al lavabo fins a 18 vegades al dia: se li ha desenvolupat la malaltia de la síndrome del colon irritable i la seva vida personal i professional s'han trastocat. El digestòleg Javier Santos, investigador de la Vall d'Hebron, li diu que tant important com el tractament hospitalari és que ella aprengui a relaxar-se amb determinats exercicis físics i de respiració.

What should you do if your children have head lice? Which products work and which don’t? Do any of them pose a health danger? Find the answer to these and other questions on “The Lice Plague” on C33’s science program.

There are 3,000 types of lice, but only one, pediculus capitis, infests the human head and scalp and can only live there. And this is precisely what makes them so hard to get rid of.

Reporter Anna Lasaga visits a school in Barcelona’s Olympic Village to learn about their ongoing battle against this problematic insect. Then she visits the Pharmaceutical Studies Department at the University of Barcelona to find out which natural and synthetic products work best to fight nits. Parasitologist Montserrat Portús evaluates home remedies, from vinegar to gasoline, and explains how to use the different pharmaceutical products available, while dermatologist Eulàlia Baselga shows how the products should be applied and stresses the importance of repeating the treatment after a few days to avoid a recurrence of head lice. From the studio, Marc Boada, explains why some types of lice build up a resistance to insecticides, which has to do with these insects’ fast reproduction cycle.
