New Evidence Points To Postmortem Persistence of Consciousness

New research by a team at the NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City provides some of the strongest evidence to-date that consciousness persists for some time after the traditionally recognized point of death.

The researchers studied accounts from cardiac patients who technically died but were subsequently resuscitated. Some of these patients reported detailed memories of things like postmortem conversations between their attending medical staff, after the point when blood flow to the brain has ceased, i.e. clinical death. Their accounts were verified by medical personnel, showing their memories were accurate.

Such claims of postmortem awareness have appeared in the literature of so-called Near Death Experiences for as long as such experiences have been reported, but have been traditionally explained as false memories.

These claims have received renewed interest since a 2013 study of rat brains revealed evidence of a postmortem state of hyper awareness, suggesting that the mind may be aware when the body dies.

The evidence from different lines of research appears to be converging on a radical conclusion: the mind does not simply cease at the moment of clinical death, but may persist for a time afterwards. This is not necessarily evidence for an afterlife, but does at least suggest that the dividing line between the life and death of the mind may be far less clear than scientists have long believed.

Ben Simmons' rookie season was cut short last year due to a foot injury, but his debut was — as 76ers coach Brett Brown would put it — "exceptional." The 76ers ended up losing to the Washington Wizards 120-115 due to two costly turnovers and a missed three-pointer from J.J Reddick, which would of tied the game at 116 apiece. However, the 76ers future looked bright with Ben Simmons finishing the game with 18 points (7/15 FG), 5 assists, 10 rebounds, and 2 steals. On the Wizards side of things, John Wall looked like he was in mid-season form, finishing the game with a team-high 28 points (10/28 FG), 8 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks.

Bradley Beal had 25 points (6/17 FG), 4 assists, 6 rebounds, and 3 steals.
Marcin Gortat had 16 points (7/12 FG), 17 rebounds, and 3 blocks.
Kelly Oubre Jr. had 14 points (3/6 3PT), 2 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.

Robert Covington had 29 points (7/11 3PT), 7 rebounds, and 2 blocks.
Joel Embiid had 18 points (7/15 FG), 3 assists, and 18 rebounds.
Markelle Fultz had 10 points (5/9 FG) and 3 rebounds.

We can certainly argue about the exact manner in which these disclosures should be made, given the technical limitations of various ad formats. But it seems clear that some sort of disclosure rules for most political Internet-based ads are both necessary and possible -- and almost certainly coming eventually. The key now is to help structure the relevant legislation to be as technologically practical as possible.

As noted how #Neville's WWE status is up in the air after he reportedly walked out of #RAW in Indianapolis earlier this month after finding out he was scheduled to lose a non-title match to then-WWE Cruiserweight Champion #EnzoAmore that night. #Kalisto ended up winning the title from Enzo that night but sources report that the plan has been to get the title back on Enzo, possibly at this Sunday's #WWETLC pay-per-view. There were conflicting reports on if Neville really walked out of RAW but multiple sources confirmed that he was not happy with the company and that he had pushed for his release.

It was also reported that Neville's unhappiness goes back a few months as he was upset over his #WrestleMania #WM33 Kickoff pre-show win over Austin Aries being left off the WrestleMania DVD along with the other pre-show matches. This caused him to miss out on royalties from what is usually the best-selling WWE DVD of the year. It was also noted that The King of The Cruiserweights was upset over other issues. While Neville remains under contract with WWE, it was reported that he was not being factored into any creative plans and he was not being booked for any upcoming events.

In an update, Sports Illustrated reports that Neville was frustrated by the direction of his character, the lack of pay-offs and the rough WWE life on the road. Neville has reportedly been "miserable in WWE" since January of this year and the walkout came nine months later than expected by many people close to the situation.

It appears Neville's decision may be influenced in-part by #AustinAries, who left the company on amicable terms earlier this year. The SI report notes that Neville learned Aries would be making more in the next six weeks on the indies than Neville would in the same timeframe while with WWE. We noted before that Neville had pushed for his WWE release with the idea of working the indies and making a name for himself there.

Regarding his match being left off the WrestleMania 33 DVD, not only was Neville upset about missing out on the pay but he was said to be "infuriated" that the company "would disregard his service and value" after being as dedicated as he was. Neville reportedly felt that he was viewed as "nothing more than a very talented 'get-over guy' used to enhance" other Superstars.

No word yet on if WWE will grant Neville his release but SI reports that he is hoping or success in Ring of Honor or New Japan Pro Wrestling. WWE could grant the release or make Neville wait until his deal expires, or possibly explore a breach of contract, but SI adds that the walkout did upset #VinceMcMahon.

There are rumors stating that other WWE talent also wants to leave the company and have been asking #CodyRhodes about transitioning to the indies. Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer confirmed on Twitter that "several" WWE talents are thinking about leaving, although he would not confirm if wrestlers were asking Cody for advice

Number of undiscovered near-Earth asteroids revised downward

Fewer large near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) remain to be discovered than astronomers thought, according to a new analysis by planetary scientist Alan W. Harris of MoreData! in La Canada, California. Harris is presenting his results this week at the 49th annual meeting of the American Astronomical Society's Division for Planetary Sciences in Provo, Utah.

Observers have been cataloging potentially hazardous asteroids for decades. Based on the number of finds, the area of sky explored, and the limiting brightness our telescopes and cameras can reach, researchers can estimate what fraction of the NEA population has been detected so far and how many more objects lurk undiscovered. Harris has published numerous such estimates over the years. Recently he realized that his estimates have been plagued by a seemingly innocuous but nonetheless consequential round-off error. Once corrected, the estimated number of large (diameter > 1 kilometer) NEAs remaining to be discovered decreases from more than 100 to less than 40.

The population ("size-frequency distribution") of NEAs is usually given in terms of number versus brightness, since most discovery surveys operate in visible (reflected) light. Brightness isn't a reliable proxy for size, though, because asteroid surfaces don't all have the same albedo, or reflectivity. NEA brightnesses are expressed in units of absolute magnitude H, with lower numbers indicating brighter objects. The IAU Minor Planet Center—the world's clearinghouse for asteroid measurements—rounds off reported values of H to the nearest 0.1 magnitude. While this is mostly unimportant, amounting to a reduction in the estimated NEA population N ( <H ) of only about 7%, it becomes significant in assessing the completion of surveys for the largest objects.
