Serious concerns regarding data security at Google
G+ seems to be the #whippingboy but these breaches reveal a far deeper problem

Facebook paid a price but Google seems to be getting away with these security breaches almost #scotfree by diverting it to a platform they abandoned

Time to find a better Search Engine
The end of search as we know it. Google eventually moves to the Answer Engine exclusively at times ...

Neurological breakthrough h/t +Eli Fennell
Neuroscientists Find Previously Undiscovered Region of Human Brain

Researchers at Neuroscience Research Australia, utilizing an advanced new technique of neuronal staining for the development of a new brain atlas, have identified a previously undiscovered region of the human brain.

Located at the base of the brain, near where the brain meets the spinal cord, this new region has been dubbed the endorestiform nucleus, and has not been previously identified in Rhesus monkeys or other higher primates or other animals, suggesting it may be unique (among surviving species) to humans.

Given its position, it is suspected to play a key role in human fine motor skills, of the sort that allow us to become Beethovens and the like, i.e. to master skills requiring fine motor control in a manner no other species could, even if they were so inclined and could be trained to do so.

The existence of this region was already hinted at by therapeutic anterolateral cordotomy, a surgery in which long spinal cord fibres are cut to relieve chronic pain. Until now, the reason why this worked has been unclear, but in retrospect, the fibres seem to terminate near this structure.

While on the one hand a very exciting discovery, on the other hand this means that animal models of human brain development and disease are likely to be even less valid than previously suspected, especially for any diseases linked specifically with this structure, assuming it is indeed unique to humans.

Synchronicity PLUS announces its G+ Migration to Instagram
Yes, we're moving albeit slowly. You've probably heard that G+ is closing but I have found a great solution for those of you who have supported this collection and who want to continue following it in the future.

It's not over yet but I had to come up with a progressive migration plan that would keep it going for all of you who have followed and enjoyed.

I've chosen Instagram as my preferred migration platform. It's easy to remember too. It's exactly the same name! https://www.instagram.com/synchronicityplus/

We have around 9-months to migrate but be sure to pop in for a look, either here or there as I have begun to repost previously featured posts, on a daily basis, at our new hub...along with plenty of new ones!

Thank you for your ongoing support here over the past few years it's been fun serving you all.
