Have you looked at Software Carpentry? Greg Wilson at U of Toronto designed the curriculum for researchers. Spend 1/3 the time programming and who cares what the runtime is like?

Brain Scanning Just Got Very Good—and Very Unsettling

HCP data has also enabled researchers to use a brain scan to predict how a person will perform on an intelligence test and during a memory or reading task. “This may be a bit scary,” admitted Roderic Pettigrew, director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, during introductory remarks at the symposium. In order to collect of that data, the HCP team pioneered the use of a “multiband” approach, which involves scanning three sections of the brain at the same time instead of in series. This method has allowed radiologists to acquire high-resolution images up to 8 times as fast as they previously could using traditional MRI machines. “That gives us higher quality data; it also gives us a ton more data,” said Van Essen at the symposium.
The U.S. government’s Human Connectome Project moves into its second phase—and its brain scans are being used to predict individuals’ behavior and intelligence

Maybe (maybe) how life could have started earlier than we thought.
In the first billion years of Earth’s history, the planet was bombarded by primordial asteroids, while a faint Sun provided much less heat. A Southwest Research Institute-led team posits that this tumultuous beginning may have ultimately fostered life on Earth, particularly in terms of sustaining liquid water.

Looks really cool.

Way cool! And another excellent example of commercialized (below low-earth orbit) space ops.

Space Systems Engineer, blogger, podcaster, investigator
Introduction
Feel free to circle me, but if you want me to circle you back, then please have some content in your profile, use your real name, and provide some information on who you are, and some clear indication of what interests you. Please don't use a stock photo fro your profile pic - that's a red flag.

I suffer from a low curiosity threshold.  I am a space systems engineer, blogger, podcaster and a skeptical but open-minded investigator.   Especially interested in space, astronomy, and the search for intelligent ETs.  Although most of my G+ posts are science or space related, I also spout off on music from time, totally unqualified though I am.

My two closely related podcasts are: Unseenpodcast.com and wowsignalpodcast.com. To join the panel pool for the Unseen Podcast, please visit the Participant's Community and knock on the door. We usually record Friday nights on the East Coast of the US

Trying to keep my middle-aged body in shape and a bit safer by learning Krav Maga.  Train at Pure Performance Martial Arts in Rockville, Maryland.
