Scientists investigate why crows are so playful

New experiments reveal a complex link between crow play and tool use. Crows share an interesting set of behaviors with humans: they like to play, and they often use tools. We know that humans play to learn. When toddlers knock over a pile of blocks, they're developing the ability to build and measure objects in the real world. The question is, do crows play for the same reason? An international team of cognitive scientists played with some crows to find out. What they discovered gives us a new understanding of crow consciousness, but it still leaves a lot of questions unanswered. Lund University cognitive science researcher Megan Lambert and her colleagues designed three experiments to figure out whether there's a relationship between crow play and their ability to use tools to solve puzzles. It's well-documented that wild New Caledonian crows make a variety of tools, from hooked sticks to specially-prepared leaf edges, to pull insects out of hard-to-reach spots in trees. But crows have also been observed doing all kinds of weird things with tools, often for what seems like the pursuit of fun.

New study found too much exercise can shorten lifespan by increasing arterial calcification. It is safer to practice the gentle telepathy walking, hands-on-healing and conscious breathing explained below

4 TELEPATHY BOOSTING EXERCISES:

1. Telepathy Walking and Gentle Moving while doing choreshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/TyspsnyV33x

2. Hands on healing and massage, touching different areas of the body to stimulate specific neuronal pathways activating the areas of the brain that when lighting up increase telepathy more (different from person to person sometimes).https://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/fD4tJ6oYMhQ

3. Conscious Breathinghttps://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/JEjReNz8xyE

4. Other gentler softer sports or exercisinghttps://plus.google.com/+AlexPsi/posts/eY3YGGUnziS

TWO MORE STUDIES on the deadly effects of exercise void of gentleness and tenderness, specific to macho mindset where pushing to the limit of strenuous exercising is common, as "gentleness towards self and others is not a virtue" in that mindset:

1. Increased cardiovascular disease mortality associated with excessive exercise in heart attack survivors. Exercising past a certain point (7.2 MET) increases ischemic mortality 3 times ► Mayo Clin Proc. 2014 Sep;89(9):1187-94. ► https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25128072

2. The risk of unexpected death due to strenuous exercises is 5 to 7 times higher than moderate-intensity exercise ► J Exerc Rehabil. 2016 Feb; 12(1): 42–46. ► free paper ► https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4771152/. This is explained in more detail at the https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3298928/ study of 36 runners, most of whom died of heart attack within 24 hours of the marathon.

Goðafoss, Iceland

One of the the more graceful locations on the island. A crescent waterfall that looks amazing no matter what angle you're photographing it from. The water also spills into a beautiful canyon that seems to never get the attention it deserves. So, in order to get here, you need a bit more time than usual, as it's in the far north-east of the island. But for those making the journey around the entire island, it will definitely be a highlight of your trip.

Goðafoss, you're a stunner!

The only one of its kind in the Solar System! Wild!

NASA has found an invisible, twisted magnetic tail trailing behind Mars as it orbits the Sun, caused by the effects of rushing solar winds, and perhaps explaining more about how the Martian atmosphere escapes into space.

This unique insight was revealed by readings from the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) spacecraft, which showed how the Red Planet's local magnetic fields behave differently from the global magnetic field around Earth.

Interactions between magnetic fields in the Sun's solar winds, and the pockets of magnetism left on Mars, could give remaining atmospheric particles an escape route out into space, according to scientists at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland.

"We found that Mars' magnetic tail, or magnetotail, is unique in the Solar System," says one of the team, Gina DiBraccio.

"It's not like the magnetotail found at Venus, a planet with no magnetic field of its own, nor is it like Earth's, which is surrounded by its own internally generated magnetic field. Instead, it is a hybrid between the two."

The solar winds, made up of electrically conducting gas blown out by the Sun, are thought to have stripped away much of the Martian atmosphere billions of years ago. Now, those same winds are causing the unique magnetotail effect as their combine with the leftover regions of magnetism still present on certain parts of Mars. The solar winds carry their own magnetic fields, and if they hit a region on Mars oriented in the opposite direction, it causes an effect called magnetic reconnection. It's here that the invisible twist happens.

"Our model predicted that magnetic reconnection will cause the Martian magnetotail to twist 45 degrees from what's expected based on the direction of the magnetic field carried by the solar wind," says DiBraccio.

"When we compared those predictions to MAVEN data on the directions of the Martian and solar wind magnetic fields, they were in very good agreement."

That magnetic reconnection could also be pushing more of the already thin atmosphere on Mars out into space, as electrically charged ions in the planet's upper atmosphere respond to the magnetic field created by the tail.

The magnetotail essentially gives these particles a path to follow to flow off the planet, using energy created by the magnetic reconnection – like a stretched rubber band suddenly snapping back into place, according to NASA.

Because MAVEN is continually changing its orbit in relation to the Sun, it's been able to map the magnetic fields of Mars in their entirety, and build up a map of the way the magnetotail is sent twisting and fluctuating by the solar winds.

Next, the researchers want to examine readings from instruments on MAVEN besides the magnetometer to confirm that reconnected magnetic fields are indeed contributing to atmospheric loss, and to what extent. All of which is going to be vital information if we decide to settle down on the Red Planet in the next few decades – that lack of atmosphere is one of the main stumbling blocks.

"Mars is really complicated but really interesting at the same time," says DiBraccio. The research has been presented at the annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society's Division for Planetary Sciences in Utah
