Sensorimotor Regions of the Brain Become Overconnected in Children with Autism

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/autism-cerebellum-sensoriomotor-connections-1836/.

Researchers find that in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, the connections between the cerebral cortex and the cerebellum appear to be overdeveloped in sensorimotor regions of the brain.

The research is in Biological Psychiatry. (full access paywall)

Study Maps Extroversion Types in the Brain's Anatomy

Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/mri-gray-matter-brain-extroverts-1804/.

Everyday experience and psychological studies alike tell us that there are two different types of extroverts: The gregarious "people-persons" who find reward in sharing affection and affiliation with others, and the ambitious "go-getters" who flash those bright-white smiles in their pursuit of achievement and leadership agendas. A new study shows that these overlapping yet distinct personalities have commensurately overlapping yet distinct signatures in the anatomy of the brain.

The research is in Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Neuroscience. (full access paywall)

Research: "The neuroanatomical delineation of agentic and affiliative extraversion" by Erica N. Grodin and Tara L. White in Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Neuroscience doi:10.3758/s13415-014-0331-6

Team Internet spoke, and the FCC listened. Congratulations to all on a historic vote for sustainable net neutrality rules!
Today the FCC voted three to two to reclassify broadband Internet access as a common carrier service under Title II of the Communications Act, and forbear from the parts of the Act that aren’t necessary for net neutrality rules.

As International Women’s Day nears, we have to recognise that while attitudes are changing, women and girls still face appalling inequality and injustice around the world

Great news: The Federal Communications Commission just voted to keep the internet open and free. That's the power of millions making their voices heard. To everyone who spoke out, thank you. wh.gov/net-neutrality #NetNeutrality

Why 'dumb' feature phones are about to make a come-back!

Japan has long been a global leader in mobile phone trends. That's why the most recent mobile sales numbers coming out of Japan are a shock.

For the past two years, smartphone sales have declined. Some 5.3 percent fewer smartphones sold in 2014 than in 2013.

Meanwhile, shipments of dumb "flip-phones" rose by 5.7 percent last year over the year before. Dumb phones—also called "feature phones"—are now eating away at smartphone sales in Japan.

No, I don't think dumb phones will or should replace smartphones. But I do think Japan is ahead of the curve.
 
I've come to believe that the smartphone will lose its position as the center of mobility for everyone in rich countries. As smartphones become more of a commodity and prices drop while features become ubiquitous across all lines, the necessity of smartphones will drop among some users, as the social stigma around dumb phones evaporates.
 
Things will get much more complex, and dumb phones will have a bigger role to play in this new world.  Different minorities of users will choose dumb phones over smartphones for different reasons. Here are those reasons:

Ma's tailor does quality work. We were referred to Ma's by Button Down on Sacramento Street. My guess is Ma's pricing is middle/high. Not the highest, nor the lowest. You will get quality tailoring - it is worth the drive out to the end of Clement.

Mama Ji's was a pop-up inside of Queen Malika, and after a two-month hiatus/remodel Mama Ji's is back and my husband and I are thrilled The food is very flavorful and tasty, prices are reasonable, and they use quality ingredients. Service is ernest - it is a family business and the kids, husband and sometimes the chef act as servers, so don't expect perfection, rather appreciate the good intention and attitudes. When it was a pop-up we were die hard fans of the won-ton soup. While we ordered it again at dinner, we also tried the special which was long bean with pork - it was delicious. Mama Ji's also has pastries in the morning and serves ritual (wish it was four barrel? me too!)

We have been using GreenStreet for years. Great cleaner able to handle fine clothing. If they do make a error (they are human after all) just let them know and they will take care of it. Also you can request a reusable bag so you don't have to use all of the horrible plastic - they also reuse their hangers, so don't forget to bring them back!

Coffee isn't worth the attitude. Head down to Four Barrel, Sightglass or over to Blue Bottle in Hayes

Great salads, Stumptown coffee! Can be crowded at lunch so plan to come early (11:30) or late (1pm) to get a table.

Yes there are hipsters and I don't care. You will understand the creamy goodness of fresh roasted coffee. The baristas know there shit and have the ability to turn your bad day better.
