Researchers at USC and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have developed a brain prosthesis that is designed to help individuals suffering from memory loss.
The prosthesis, which includes a small array of electrodes implanted into the brain, has performed well in laboratory testing in animals and is currently being evaluated in human patients.

4 Reasons Why The Wall Street Journal’s Attack on Bernie Sanders is Bogus http://robertreich.org/post/129306966350
The Journal’s number is entirely bogus, designed to frighten the public. Please spread the truth

Right wing propagandists are already starting to try to spread fear about +Bernie Sanders and the progressive reforms our nation so needs so badly. Bernie has proposed a national health care system focusing on health for instance that would eliminate the absurd and inadequate patchwork system based on profit we deal with right now.

Instead of paying an average of $10,000 per person per year (far more than any other developed nation and nearly twice the average) and still having tens of millions uninsured or underinsured, we could remove the age restriction on Medicare and open it up to every American to drop costs to an average of about $3k per year. By simply taking healthcare out of the hands of greedy private insurance corporations, MFA would save America $10 trillion over 10 years ($5t after expanding it). 

It does this by eliminating duplicative administration (bloat), overly lavish CEO compensation packages, massive advertising budgets, insurance research, etc. It will also save due to Economies of Scale (saving $ due to size), lower pharmaceutical costs, and being able to control cost increases, rolling in the VA, etc.

MFA would shrink budgets of state and local governments, since they would no longer have to fund the health care of state/local public workers. And perhaps best of all, it would remove the burden of health care costs for every business in America, lowering costs of their products for all consumers and increasing export competitiveness. Most nations have lower cost exports because their governments fund national healthcare systems already. 

In the end, conservatives want to kill Medicare, and Social Security, and everything else except the bloated military. We should expand Medicare to everyone. Why spend far more to get less from private corporations when MFA would literally save us trillions of dollars? Would you shop from the government store and save 50% or Walmart and pay 50% more?  Why not save $5-10 trillion for a superior health care product?

The republic is 239 today and our constitution is 226. May we be smart enough to ensure their continuation, protection, and improvement. We must perfect our union.

I am convinced that this is the future of human agriculture.  Soon our ability to grow on land will be greatly impacted by global warming and this will be a necessity, not a niche market technique.  The Japanese are already doing this on a large scale.  The great thing is how much more efficient it is and less wasteful of water.

I think that's a given as well.  If we can grow kidneys in labs (which we can right now, today using cellular scaffolds and stem cells), growing a rack of lamb or a roast will be far less taxing because it doesn't require the cells to actually work when growth is complete.

// Electronic Frontier Foundation’s senior staff attorney Lee Tien said a win for the US would make everyone’s data “fair game” for governments outside the US. “Maybe your data goes to a country where they’re not as protective of data as the United States and they decide they don’t even need a warrant,” said Tien. //

This is very interesting and one of the few times I really hope Microsoft wins in court.  In this case the government is on the wrong side of the moral bounds of the law's reach.

A verdict against the company could be troubling, legal experts warn, as governments consider whether they can require tech firms to reveal private data

I agree with the general thesis that the "dark net" will be the future because of a single driving force we are caring more and more about:  privacy.

Marvelous.
 
Artificial photosynthesis could power homes in a few years, mimicking plant-based photosynthesis by using solar energy to convert water into hydrogen. If cheap nickel catalysts can be used… and 22% efficiency holds up… then toss it onto the pile of potential game-changers. Ah, but that pile had better be producing, big-time, soon.
 
Figures indicate that the world’s uptake of renewable energy has finally eclipsed its demand for fossil fuel sources, and now a record-breaking solar device made by Australian scientists could mean a whole new category of clean energy production is...

Rama Thai has a "hole-in-wall" kind of atmosphere. But atmosphere aside, the food is the best Thai on the West Side and definitely the best in Beaverton. It's close to where I live and so it's great for night's I want take out. No matter what I've gotten, the food nearly always tasted great.

Thai Hi 5 has a lovely interior; definitely a comfortable place to sit down and have your meal. And the food is always consistently good. I think that Rama Thai, just down the street, is a bit better in the flavors of their food, but falls down in their consistency and the poor interior of their shop. Given a choice, Rama Thai is great for take out, but Thai Hi 5 is a better all-around choice: you can eat in, take out, and will always be able to count on a consistently good meal.

I live close to this gym and it's my "home gym." I used to live in Oregon City and used the Clackamas 24-Hour or the 24-Hour on Milwaukie Ave in Portland (by my work). I use this facility often. Comparing these three facilities, here are my thoughts on the Beaverton location: • Staff and trainers are extremely friendly and helpful. • Manager (I don't know his name; tall thin guy, dark hair, balding) is kind of a jerk. Very unfriendly and seems mean to the staff. • Equipment is repaired - usually, but not always - in a reasonable time. But the fact that the equipment is in disrepair so often leads me to think that some of the equipment simply needs to be replaced. The one exception is the broken drinking fountain on the second floor which has been broken for at least two weeks without being fixed. That's just too long to leave something unrepaired. • Cleanliness is where things really fall down. This facility gets a lot of use; but so did all of the other 24-Hours that I've been to. But none seem to be as consistently unclean. I'd have rated this facility higher if not for this reason alone. I get that its a gym, but cleanliness isn't just about keeping the place from being smelly; it's about ensuring colds, flu, and other communicable illnesses aren't spread from person to person. 24-Hour Fitness typically does a great job in most every facility I've been to. Now that the Beaverton location is my home gym, I'd appreciate a cleaner place to work out. Beyond that, staff is friendly and the facility has all the equipment I need and like to use.
