You wanna remove the noise? No problem! But the signal goes too! 
A new paper in Neuroimage suggests that methods for removing head motion and physiological noise from fMRI data might be inadvertently excluding real signal as well. The authors, Molly G. Bright and Kevin Murphy of Cardiff, studied the technique called nuisance regression. It’s a popular approach for removing fMRI noise. Noise reduction is important because …

Wonderful interactive activity produced for Teachers' Domain with images from NASA showing the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes and the boundaries of tectonic plates.
<p>According to theory of plate tectonics, Earth is an active planet — its surface is composed of many individual plates that move and interact, constantly changing and reshaping Earth's outer layer. Volcanoes and earthquakes both result from the movement of tectonic plates. In this interactive activity produced for <em>Teachers' Domain</em> with images from NASA, see the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes and the boundaries of tecton...

"Numberism" - the points resolve into numbers and symbols—equations for stroke volume, cardiac output, ejection fraction. It’s an entire ticker drawn out of the science that makes it tick
Sienna Morris makes painstakingly intricate images of everything from hearts to Schrödinger's cat—drawn using the science and math that explain their existence.

This is awesome! "Each habit seems to loop back onto itself, influencing and being influenced by many other habits in complex, interrelated patterns."

Habit (prediction) is always cheaper than search. Its the product of evolution (learning). I think the problem here is semantic. The word "habit" refers to learning that isn't, by some external analysis, judged advantagious, doesn't produce behavior fit to the process of extracting advantage from the environment. But to become a habit, some considerable learning had to transpire, some novel behavior had to be reinforced according to some competitive survival criteria. By this assessment, a habit is like a weed... a perfectly valid plant, adept at self survival, but by some external criteria judged unfit. Likewise, cancer. So, if a habit doesn't satisfy our concept of a "fitness" blessed behavior, by what criteria or competitive filter does it evolve and become reinforced long enough to become a stable causal structure (behavior)?

I kinda believe this. There are exceptions, of course, but on general "'Smaller grants, smaller groups and fewer papers would benefit science."

"Symmetry, a “dance and opera film,” premiered last month at the Amsterdam Cinedans festival, following a scientist who transforms into a dancer, and celebrating both roles as portals for contemplating the particle components of existence"
A movie set amongst the machines of CERN, the world's largest particle physics facility, considers how both art and science strive to understand the universe, and what it is to be human.

This list had better include the singularity geek tech rapture, transhumanism, and space cultism.

"Our results demonstrate that the review process is not a crapshoot; reviewers are providing useful information and editors are using this information to make reasonable decisions. Authors from a non English-speaking country such as China have a tougher time getting their work published, but this is not due to a negative bias by reviewers from English-speaking countries or editors. "
How do reviewer recommendations influence editor decisions? And are Chinese authors treated fairly?

Dinosaurs feathers! 
Today a group of paleontologists announced the results of an extensive study of several well-preserved dinosaur feathers encased in amber. Their work, which included samples from many stages in the evolution of feathers, bolstered the findings of other scientists who've suggested that dinosaurs (winged and otherwise) had multicolored and transparent feathers of the sort you might see on birds today. The researchers also presented evidence, based ...

Great review of a book from +Ethan Siegel  "The story is masterfully told, with Paul displaying a clear reverence and respect for his subjects, even when we — the reader — might rush in judgmentally with damnation." 
How “faith” in the Universe destroyed two brilliant men of genius.

We should start teaching this at school to kids doing science Fair projects.
 
Not all science is created equal. Here's a reminder of what to look out for.

#Pseudoscience #Science #Reason #Disseminate
March 29, 2015. Here is an interesting resource we want to bring to your attention. Compound Interest is a blog by Andy Brunning, a chemistry teacher in the UK. Andy creates and shares a wide variety of educational posters and graphics on everything related to chemistry and chemical reactions.
