Is it possible to place a new line in the post or prefix of a single stat panel? I tried \n, but that didn't work. Thanks!

Mate Recognition

It seems, a minimalist five neuron circuit in the brain of a female cricket is all that is needed to precisely detect the 30 to 40ms pulse of the male chirp of the same species (Gryllus bimaculatus).  Whilst some of the signal processing is carried out in the periphery of the hearing system of the cricket, starting down in the legs, the recognition of the crucial timing signal is handled in the brain.

The circuit uses a time delay mechanism to match the gaps between pulses in a species-specific chirp – gaps of just few milliseconds. The circuit delays a pulse by the exact between-pulse gap, so that, if it coincides with the next pulse coming in, the same species signal is confirmed.

Beginning to really love the NPR One app! I have a few requests:
- I would find it very useful to be able to tap on certain "meta data" for a show: things like the show associated with the episode, the date of the show, or even related topics or shows.
- There really needs to be a single place where I can manage my show subscriptions
- Could you add the ability to subscribe to news for another city?
- Can you allow me to subscribe to "All Things Considered" and add "Simon Says?"


The Android 5.0.2 update has made an amazing amount of difference for my Nexus 7 (2012). I've gone from absolutely hating it to using it again. Nice fix for an older product, Google!

Google has consistently done great things with their photos capability. I'd love to see Picasa woven into this (seamlessly), eventually. But it's great to see this kind of really innovative work.

I just enabled DirectWrite in Chrome 33, and wow! I honestly didn't think that it would make that big of a difference, but it really does! Very glad to finally see some movement on improving the way Chrome looks on higher-DPI displays!
