There have been similar articles saying the same thing, but what's nice about this article is that it goes through several studies, said what they were testing, how they did it, and what the effects were. 

There seems to be a strong connection between autism or anxiety issues and microbiome problems. 

"Mazmanian, who in 2012 was awarded a MacArthur grant for his microbiome work, sees this as a “potential breakthrough” in understanding how microbes contribute to autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders. He says the results so far suggest that adjusting gut bacteria could be a viable treatment for the disease, at least in some patients. “We may be able to reverse these ailments,” he says. “If you turn off the faucet that produces this compound, then the symptoms disappear. That’s what we see in the mouse model.”

Some researchers believe the microbiome plays a role in regulating how people think and feel.

I just spent several hours going through all the photos on my hard drive and selecting specific ones for a photo album and uploading them to Picasa. 

I added titles to each photo. They all appeared to load. I clicked the "OK" button. Then I added more photos. Then I clicked "OK" again. I really didn't want to lose all that work. Then I went to make a second folder, went back to the first and it's gone. So is the second. What the heck?!!  

And the "missing photos" section in the help area is absolutely no help at all. 

What a waste of time. And these were photos for a city project. So it's not like I was just doing it for fun. But I certainly don't have the time to start over. Sooooo frustrating. Thanks +Google. :-P

Not only is this a very cute clip, but my high school buddy's daughter is also featured. (His son plays a very minor role as well.) 
"Twerk" is now officially a word. The Merriam-Webster dictionary just announced more than 1700 new words have been added to the official unabridged American dictionary. Other linguistic highlights include “NSFW,” “emoji” “vocal fry” and “clickbait.” While these words are unlikely to...

How can bi-monthly mean twice a month and every other month? They're two very different things. If someone uses the term, how are you supposed to know which they mean? 

Maybe I'll just go with "every other."

+Scott Allen If you check out the link I posted earlier you'll see that bimonthly can mean either.

Second set of our Boston pics. We came back Monday, but I'm only just now getting around to posting. 

We had a great time. Boston is a really lovely place. It's not nearly as bike friendly as we would have guessed or hoped, but the old buildings and history was really wonderful.

This is insane. The girl wasn't "detained." She was assaulted. If this happened to my kids, (not just what he did to the girl, but to the boys as well) I would be furious. Just imagine if this was a black cop treating white teens this way. Let's assault first and ask questions later. :-P 

And what's with the adult in tan that just stands around and assists? Why weren't any of the adults trying engage the officer and calm him down? He was clearly out of control.

In order to use the G+ editing tools, you have to post to G+. Can't just do it on Picasa as far as I know. So... here are some photos I'm going to start working on for an upcoming post. That is all.
