For Your Brain’s Sake, Keep Moving

Because we can never have enough reasons to keep exercising, a new study with mice finds that physical activity not only increases the number of new neurons in the brain, it also subtly changes the shape and workings of these cells in ways that might have implications for memory and even delaying the onset of dementia. As most of us have heard, our brains are not composed of static, unchanging tissue. Instead, in most animals, including people, the brain is a dynamic, active organ in which new neurons and neural connections are created throughout life, especially in areas of the brain related to memory and thinking. This process of creating new neurons, called neurogenesis, can be altered by lifestyle, including physical activity. Many past studies have shown that in laboratory rodents, exercise doubles or even triples the number of new cells produced in adult animals’ brains compared to the brains of animals that are sedentary. But it has not been clear whether the new brain cells in active animals are somehow different from comparable new neurons in inactive animals or if they are just more numerous....Last year, in an important study published in NeuroImage, the researchers found for the first time that young brain cells in adult mice that spent a month with running wheels in their cages did seem to be different from those in animals that did not run. For the experiment, the scientists injected a modified rabies vaccine into the animals, where it entered the nervous system and brain. They then tracked and labeled connections between brain cells and learned that compared to the sedentary animals’ brain cells, the runners’ newborn neurons had more and longer dendrites, the snaky tendrils that help to connect the cells into the neural communications network. They also found that more of these connections led to portions of the brain that are important for spatial memory, which is our internal map of where we have been and how we got there.

TIL that…

Astronauts living aboard the International Space Station actually live closer to the graveyard of spacecraft than anyone else. This is because the ISS orbits about 250 miles above Earth — and Point Nemo, when the orbital laboratory flies overhead. (The nearest island, meanwhile, is much farther away.)

Leaked Video On Reddit Shows Apple iPhone X Ahead Of Its November 3 Release Date

This Saturday, a new video appeared on Reddit showing yet another iPhone X “in the wild”, despite even preorders having to wait until next Friday.

In the 10-second clip, found on Reddit, reveals that not all apps appear to be optimized to perfectly fit the new 5.8-inch edge-to-edge OLED display. In the video, a person shows off the back of a silver phone, unlocks it with a vertical swipe, then opens Instagram.

While the hardware’s authenticity cannot be guaranteed and its origin is unknown, it carries all of the design traits of the real iPhone X such as a glass back, a vertically-aligned rear camera, and a sensor notch interrupting an edge-to-edge display. Even though the video is only 9-seconds in length, we do get to see how Instagram looks on the phone, and some are not going to be happy with what they see.

Is the startup era over? "The web boom of 1997-2006 brought us Amazon, Facebook, Google, Salesforce, AirBnB, etc., because the Internet was the new new thing, and a handful of kids in garages and dorm rooms could build a web site, raise a few million dollars, and scale to serve the whole world. The smartphone boom of 2007-2016 brought us Uber, Lyft, Snap, WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, etc., because the same was true of smartphone apps."

"Because we've all lived through back-to-back massive worldwide hardware revolutions -- the growth of the Internet, and the adoption of smartphones -- we erroneously assume another one is around the corner, and once again, a few kids in a garage can write a little software to take advantage of it. But there is no such revolution en route."

IGDB - Video Games Database beta
https://www.testingcatalog.com/project/638/reports

This beta app is all about games. It has a huge database where you can search and browse game details.
I like the UI, it easy to navigate through the app.
It is possible to add games to the list of favourites and rate them with a 0 to 100 scale. Usability wise it is done quite well in general. I would try to move actions from the floating button somewhere else to decrease an amount of taps the user has to perform (Not very important).
It was very interesting to test this one and I also liked that this app contains links to the wiki pages and related twitter accounts.

Device: Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Android 6.0.1

Notes:

Some games in the database has an empty description
Search for “fifa” and open fifa 12. See the screenshot below.

There is no warning if device doesn’t have internet connection.
In addition to that, the user can see “Server maintenance” message on app loading if he doesn’t have an internet connection.

Issues:

The user can see a short blink during the search hot loading.

- Priority - low.
- Steps - open app - press the search icon - type "fifa" - wait for the search results loading - type Space.
- Expected - the user should see a short loading animation for hot loading events or the list of results should stay unchanged after the "Space" character entering b/c the list of new results will be the same.
- Actual - the user can see a short blink during the search hot loading even if the list of results is the same.

The second Back button press doesn’t close the app if the settings menu was closed via back arrow

- Priority - medium.
- Steps - open app - open app drawer - open settings - press Back arrow icon at the top-left corner - press Back device button - see the toast message - press Back device button again
- Expected - the app is closed as per Toast promise.
- Actual - Settings activity is opened. It looks like the Back arrow icon starts a new main activity instead of resuming an old one which behaves badly.

Full description is opened by default on the game details page and “read more” button collapses it

- Priority - medium.
- Steps - open app - open any game - swipe right to the details page - scroll down - press “Read more”
- Expected - Short description is opened by default and Read more button expands it to the full description. If it is intended to show a full description by default, the button should be changed to the “Show less”.
- Actual - “read more” button shows a short description which is “less"

The details page tab opening crashes an app in case if the Main activity was recreated by the Settings activity

- Priority - High.
- Steps - open app - open app drawer - open settings - press Back arrow icon at the top-left corner - open any game - swipe right to the details page.
- Expected - Settings activity shouldn’t spawn a new Main activity instance and the details page should be displayed.
- Actual - App crashes. See logs.

```

```

Removing from the favourites crashes the app

- Priority - high.
- Steps - open app - sign in - open any app - tap on the floating button - Press on the Add to Want List - see “error adding” toast message - tap on the floating button again - press on the Remove from Want List.
- Expected - the user can add and remove games from the Want list without any errors.
- Actual - The user receives a server error during adding any game to the Want list (The same operation works normally without an internet). The game was marked as “added” on the app level and the user can remove it from the list. This operation causes a crash. See logs.

```

The monkey script test crashes the app with a high chance

- Priority - medium.
- Steps - run "adb shell monkey -p com.igdb.igdbmainapp -v --pct-syskeys 0 1000” script
- Expected - test passes successfully
- Actual - app crashed 4 out of 5 tries. See logs.

```

SPIDER-MAN SYMBOL EVOLUTION

Which is your favourite? Mine are: 1962, 1988, and 2002. Honestly, the 2nd 2015 symbol doesn't even look like a spider. Half of these don't even look like spiders which I think is hilarious XD
