'Selfish Brain' Wins Out When Competing With Muscle Power

New research on our internal trade-off when physical and mental performance are put in direct competition has found that cognition takes less of a hit, suggesting more energy is diverted to the brain than body muscle. Researchers say the findings support the ‘selfish brain’ theory of human evolution.

The research is in Scientific Reports. (full open access)

GET YOUR COATS AND BLANKETS TOGETHER AND BE READY TO LIE UNDER THE STARS TONIGHT -- One of the best meteor showers of the fall will peak on Saturday morning with over a dozen meteors streaking across the night sky every hour. Clear skies will bring excellent viewing conditions for those across the eastern United States while clouds and wildfire smoke obscure the shower for some areas in the western and central U.S.

I feel like if your teenager is going to ask you for spaghetti for dinner, clearly busting the door wide open for your really bad eminem joke, AND you’re actually going to make it for them, the least they can do is laugh.

Am I right???

Improving Brain Machine Interfaces to Help People With Paralysis Interact With the World

Since the 19th century at least, humans have wondered what could be accomplished by linking our brains – smart and flexible but prone to disease and disarray – directly to technology in all its cold, hard precision. Writers of the time dreamed up intelligence enhanced by implanted clockwork and a starship controlled by a transplanted brain.

"Forever Reaching"
By +Adam Kavalunas www.plateauvisions.com Even though I only live about an hour away from Bryce Canyon, I feel like I haven't photographed it as much as it deserves. I got the chance this week to reconnect with an old friend and spend some time catching up and enjoy some great light together. These old Ponderosa Pines have likely been growing here for almost a hundred years, constantly reaching upward in a never ending quest for light, much like us photographers... - Adam Kavalunas

A Thousand Little Beauties -- Bingham, Illinois
"Nature doth thus kindly heal every wound. By the mediation of a thousand little mosses and fungi, the most unsightly objects become radiant of beauty. There seem to be two sides of this world, presented us at different times, as we see things in growth or dissolution, in life or death. And seen with the eye of the poet, all things are alive and beautiful."
-- Henry David Thoreau

Though I'm not 100% certain, I believe this is an example of False Turkey Tail fungus ( Stereum ostrea ), which mimics the true Turkey Tail fungus ( Trametes versicolor ), but which lacks pores on its underside. If anyone can confirm or deny this ID it would be greatly appreciated. :)

However, what I have learned is that the shadow some Ghost cast in moonlight is just a warm bright shadow, kind of. (#D4N, day for night)
