Homeostasis
The Dynamic State of Internal Balance

Three Important Structures in the Brain:
medulla oblongata: the part of the brain stem associated with vital functions such as respiration and circulation
pituitary gland: regulates the function of other glands, growth, maturation, and reproduction
reticular formation: a network of nerve cells and fibers in the brain stem and spinal cord that help control vital reflexes such as cardiovascular function and respiration

Constant Biological Feedback:
► detection of disruption locally
► response to disruption functionally
► restoration of homeostasis systemically

The job of the physician is not to get in the way of homeostasis, but to support it.

An octopus the size of a rugby ball made an audacious escape through a narrow pipe at New Zealand's National Aquarium, reports said, with the "great escape artist" returning to the ocean.
Inky the male octopus, given to the Napier aquarium two years ago after being rescued from a crayfish pot, made a dash for freedom by slipping through a small gap in his enclosure, sliding across a wet floor and squeezing through a 150-millimetre-diameter pipe, Fairfax New Zealand said.
"Octopus are really intelligent animals, very inquisitive, and they also tend to explore whenever they get the chance," aquarium manager Rob Yarrell told MediaWorks' Newshub.
"Giving him just a little gap was enough for him to get out and we noticed the wet trail across to one of our drains."
The reports did not state when Inky made the getaway, reportedly the first-ever at the aquarium.
"They are great escape artists," Mr Yarrell told the New Zealand Herald, saying staff would be closely watching the remaining octopus in the enclosure.

Another beautiful display at Vivid Sydney. If you go there and have on earphones, I recommend listening to Schpongle! :)

The Origins of Scales, Feathers and Hair

Indeed, we have identified in reptiles new molecular signatures that are identical to those observed during the development of hairs and feathers, as well as the presence of the same anatomical placode as in mammals and birds. This indicates that the three types of skin appendages are homologous: the reptilian scales, the avian feathers and the mammalian hairs, despite their very different final shapes, evolved from the scales of their reptilian common ancestor.'

The potential evolutionary link between hairs in mammals, feathers in birds and scales in reptiles has been debated for decades. Today, researchers of the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, Switzerland, demonstrate that all these skin appendages are homologous: they share a common ancestry. On the basis of new analyses of embryonic development, the Swiss biologists evidenced molecular and micro-anatomical ...

What does Queenstown look like from on top of the Remarkables? Like this! Man, this was a hard hike, and we even took a snowmobile most of the way while in the Remarkables Ski Fields. Beyond that, another 70-floor hike through a very deep snow. I was almost too exhausted up there to take a photo... but it was so beautiful, I took a moment to myself then set up the camera.

We're going back up here in a few days to do another live Facebook broadcast at sunrise, so don't miss that one! :) We have another one coming up on Wednesday behind-the-scenes when I am going to be interviewed on the Paul Henry show.

Would you like to Wombat my Drop Bear?

From a random fast food joint in Cincinnati

(I’m a manager in a fast-food restaurant. One night it’s kind of slow and I am having a discussion with another of our managers about how when you’re working the drive-thru you can pretty much say anything as the customers don’t really listen to what you say. He’s been challenging me to slip random words in all night. By this point it’s gotten totally out of hand into the realm of the ridiculous. Note the last several words I am “challenged” to are “koala bear” and “kangaroo,” kind of setting a mental theme. To help prove the point I say everything in my normal “drive-thru voice” and try not to laugh on speaker. The drive-thru dings.)

Me: “Funnel Web Spider!”

Customer: “Hi, I’m fine.”

Me: “That’s koala bear. What can we Australia today?”

Customer: “I’ll take a number three, please.”

Me: “Boomerang! And to eucalyptus?”

Customer: “A Pepsi, please.”

Me: “Wonderful. Anything else we can kangaroo?”

Customer: “No, that’s all.”

Me: “Great! If your sailboat is correct, your wallaby is [Total]. We’ll Sydney at the first dingo.”

(By this point all my coworkers were listening in on headsets, and were in hysterics.)

Other Manager: “He didn’t even miss a beat. I bow to the master.”
