Compound in Beets May Help Slow Alzheimer's

A compound in beets that gives the vegetable its distinctive red color could eventually help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the brain, a process that is associated with Alzheimer's disease. Scientists say this discovery could lead to the development of drugs that could alleviate some of the long-term effects of the disease, the world's leading cause of dementia.

Now may be a good time for a little data hygiene over on Facebook, since the company itself seems to have some trouble discerning what truly is in the interests of its users.

I just wiped out 20+ apps that had access to my Facebook data for reasons that I no longer deemed worthwhile. A number of these, I didn't even remember signing up for.

And if you want me to just save you some time, here's a direct link to the relevant portion of settings in Facebook:

Rare Stellat Encounter will Trigger Space Fireworks in 2018, says NASA

This is the longest-period binary system containing a radio pulsar. A pulsar, known as J2032. When astronomers started watching it, they had no idea how dynamic was. They still don't know what it's capable of.
This pulsar has been accelerating for the last ten years, and it's still speeding up.

When it passes through the companion star's disk, we're gonna see some serious gamma-ray emission.
The pulsar, known as J2032 is the crushed core of a massive star that exploded as a supernova.
It is a magnetized ball about 12 miles across, or about the size of Washington, weighing almost twice the sun's mass and spinning seven times a second.

The massive star tugging on the pulsar is named MT91 213. Classified as a Be star, the companion is 15 times the mass of the sun and shines 10,000 times brighter.
Be stars drive strong outflows, called stellar winds, and are embedded in large disks of gas and dust.

Astronomers are expecting high-energy explosions when pulsar J2032 swings around its massive companion star in early 2018. The pulsar will plunge through a disk of gas and dust surrounding the star, triggering cosmic fireworks.

Several features combine to make this an exceptional binary. Out of six similar systems where the massive star uses hydrogen as its central energy source, J2032's has the greatest combined mass, the longest orbital period, and, at a distance of about 5,000 light-years, is closest to Earth.

Astronomers think the supernova explosion that created the pulsar also kicked it into its eccentric orbit, nearly tearing the binary apart in the process.
A study of the system led by Lyne and including Ray and Stappers was published June 16 in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

Brain's 'insulation' continues to form throughout life

Myelin acts as insulation for millions of brain cells, allowing for swift and efficient transmission of signals across brain regions. Despite its crucial role, little is known about how stable this structure is in the adult brain and what impact aging has on its maintenance. Yale neurologists Robert Hall, Alice Li, and Jaime Grutzendler devised techniques to track and precisely image myelin throughout the lifetime of the mouse. They discovered that myelin continues to form and restructure in the adult brain—indicating the potential for lifelong change. They also learned that during aging, myelin begins to deteriorate and myelin debris accumulate over time. "Myelin is not static in the adult brain and may play an underappreciated role in brain plasticity, a role that likely to be disrupted as we age," Hill said.

The Cambridge Analytica scandal has done immense damage to the brand, sources across the company believe. It will now take a Herculean effort to restore public trust in Facebook's commitment to privacy and data protection, they said. Outside observers think regulation has suddenly become more likely, and yet CEO Mark Zuckerberg appears missing in action.

SPECT Imaging Predicts Outcomes For Those with Depression

INTERNET PARANOIACS DRAWN to Bitcoin have long indulged fantasies of American spies subverting the booming, controversial digital currency. Increasingly popular among get-rich-quick speculators, Bitcoin started out as a high-minded project to make financial transactions public and mathematically verifiable — while also offering discretion. Governments, with a vested interest in controlling how money moves, would, some of Bitcoin’s fierce advocates believed, naturally try and thwart the coming techno-libertarian financial order. It turns out the conspiracy theorists were on to something. Classified documents provided by the whistleblower Edward Snowden show the National Security Agency indeed worked urgently to target Bitcoin users around the world — and wielded at least one mysterious source of information to “help track down senders and receivers of Bitcoins,” according to a top-secret passage in an internal NSA report dating to March 2013. The data source appears to have leveraged NSA’s ability to harvest and analyze raw, global internet traffic while also exploiting an unnamed software program that purported to offer anonymity to users, according to other documents.
