RIP Oliver Sacks. Here's a post from June in which Sacks and colleagues discuss the basis for human consciousness. All five discussants include NYU neurology professor Oliver Sacks; Antonio Damasio and Gil B. Carvalho from the University of Southern California, Norman D. Cook from the faculty of Kansai University in Osaka, Japan and Harry T. Hunt from Brock University in Ontario. 
A few neurologists and brain scientists are proposing that the secret underlying all conscious activity must lie with the way cells respond to stimuli they receive from their environment. In a response to this suggestion, Christof Koch asserts that much more is required for a full theory of consciousness

The problem isn’t that modern physicists can’t match Einstein's intellectual firepower—the problem is that there are so many brilliant physicists alive today that it has become harder for any individual to stand apart from the pack. In other words, our perception of Einstein as a towering figure is, well, relative.

I would subscribe if there was a way for the magazine to not mail me any issues that have a picture of any snakes.  Please feel free to let me know if this was possible.

The algae bloom observed in Monterey Bay has morphed into what some researchers suspect could be the largest ever recorded, stretching from central California all the way up to Alaska. #science #climate
The blooms off the U.S. West Coast may become more frequent
