So to recap Planet 9 is really big (10x Earth) and far away(500-700 AU) Planet 10 is about the size of Mars and closer (maybe 50 AU) in the kuiper belt.

Exploring the Orion Nebula in infrared light for an upcoming project. This view, from the WISE mission, clearly shows the "bowl" carved by the stars of the trapezium. It also shows how the cool gas underlies the nebula and connects between Orion and the Running Man Nebula above it. It also extends down along a dense filament of cold gas that is dark at visible wavelengths. Multi-wavelength astronomy shows us diverse views that teach us so much more about the universe.

Extra-virgin olive oil preserves memory and protects brain against Alzheimer's: study

The Mediterranean diet, rich in plant-based foods, is associated with a variety of health benefits, including a lower incidence of dementia. Now, researchers at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) have identified a specific ingredient that protects against cognitive decline: extra-virgin olive oil, a major component of the Mediterranean diet. In a study published online June 21 in the Annals of Clinical and Translational Neurology, the researchers show that the consumption of extra-virgin olive oil protects memory and learning ability and reduces the formation of amyloid-beta plaques and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain—classic markers of Alzheimer's disease. The Temple team also identified the mechanisms underlying the protective effects of extra-virgin olive oil. "We found that olive oil reduces brain inflammation but most importantly activates a process known as autophagy," explained senior investigator Domenico Praticò, MD, Professor in the Departments of Pharmacology and Microbiology and the Center for Translational Medicine at LKSOM. Autophagy is the process by which cells break down and clear out intracellular debris and toxins, such as amyloid plaques and tau tangles. "Brain cells from mice fed diets enriched with extra-virgin olive oil had higher levels of autophagy and reduced levels of amyloid plaques and phosphorylated tau," Dr. Praticò said. The latter substance, phosphorylated tau, is responsible for neurofibrillary tangles, which are suspected of contributing to the nerve cell dysfunction in the brain that is responsible for Alzheimer's memory symptoms.

Though some gamers may be feeling a little cool toward Sega these days, there’s no denying that the company put out some excellent games back when it was still in the business of making consoles. Sega will be reviving some of those classic games on iOS and Android tomorrow, something it’s already done with popular games like Sonic the Hedgehog … Continue reading
