WSJ.com is cancelling their NewsHub and MoneyBeat programs, apparently as of this past Friday. They were favorites of mine. Dammit!

"To help do that, the U engineers created a much smaller form of a polarization beamsplitter (which looks somewhat like a barcode) on top of a silicon chip that can split guided incoming light into its two components. Before, such a beamsplitter was over 100 by 100 microns. Thanks to a new algorithm for designing the splitter, Menon’s team has shrunk it to 2.4 by 2.4 microns, or one-fiftieth the width of a human hair and close to the limit of what is physically possible."
"The beamsplitter would be just one of a multitude of passive devices placed on a silicon chip to direct light waves in different ways. By shrinking them down in size, researchers will be able to cram millions of these devices on a single chip."

Always test your car with a giant Tesla coil before going anywhere.

Gorgeous summer-like day! Took in some Ozzie on the car radio. Sometimes life throws you a bone.

We have to appreciate those times when we have them and remember them when it seems like life sucks.

Study title: "Inhibitory Neuron Transplantation into Adult Visual Cortex Creates a New Critical Period that Rescues Impaired Vision"
"In an attempt to restore normal sight, the researchers transplanted GABA neurons into the visual cortex of adult amblyopic mice."
"“Several weeks after transplantation, when the donor animal’s visual system would be going through its critical period, the amblyopic mice started to see with normal visual acuity,” said Melissa Davis, a postdoctoral fellow and lead author of the study."

Possibly this could be applied to the retinal ganglion (optic nerve) structure as well?

Won't be there but I'm looking forward to the new presentation & discussion videos that will come out of it.
The World Science Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to cultivate a general public informed by science, inspired by its wonder, convinced of its value, and prepared to engage with its implications for the future.

Since NASA is writing about the melting of Antarctica's Larsen B Ice Shelf it seems appropriate to also discuss the volcanic activity beneath it.
Two previously unknown recent volcanoes identified. In January 1982, geologists from the Universidad de Chile found evidence of recent volcanism at two sites in the Seal Nunataks Group that had not previously been identified as recent volcanic centers. At Dallman (65.02°S, 60.32°W), ...

"Omega-3 regulates neurotransmitters, enhances the life of a neuron and increases dendritic branching, but our bodies do not produce it. We can only get it from the environment," Raine said.
"Research on the neuroanatomy of violent criminals suggested this might be a place to intervene. Other brain-imaging researchers have shown that omega-3 supplementation increases the function of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, a region Raine found to have higher rates of damage or dysfunction in criminal offenders."
"Compared to the baseline at zero months,” Raine said, “both groups show improvement in both the externalizing and internalizing behavior problems after six months. That's the placebo effect.
“But what was particularly interesting was what was happening at 12 months. The control group returned to the baseline while the omega-3 group continued to go down. In the end, we saw a 42 percent reduction in scores on externalizing behavior and 62 percent reduction in internalizing behavior.“
