So that's how Michael Jackson did it! Thee was a peg from the floor attached to his shoe!

QUOTE: “Personally, I believe it’s not possible for me to cheat gravity even with this shoe,” study co-author Dr. Manjul Tripathi, a neurosurgeon at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India, tells Inverse. “However, as M.J. showed us the way, with good acrobatic practices and development of core muscular strength it’s possible.”

Memory Molecule Limits Plasticity by Calibrating Calcium

Nestled between the highly plastic CA1 and CA3 regions, the rather inflexible neurons of area CA2 do not readily undergo synaptic plasticity, sharply contrasting the functional properties of its close neighbors.

Eating at night, sleeping by day swiftly alters key blood proteins

Staying awake all night and sleeping all day for just a few days can disrupt levels and time of day patterns of more than 100 proteins in the blood, including those that influence blood sugar, energy metabolism, and immune function, according to new University of Colorado Boulder research published in the journal PNAS this week. "This tells us that when we experience things like jet lag or a couple of nights of shift work, we very rapidly alter our normal physiology in a way that if sustained can be detrimental to our health," said senior author Kenneth Wright, director of the Sleep and Chronobiology Laboratory and Professor in the Department of Integrative Physiology. The study is the first to examine how protein levels in human blood, also known as the plasma proteome, vary over a 24-hour period and how altered sleep and meal timing affects them. It also pinpointed 30 distinct proteins that, regardless of sleep and meal timing, vary depending upon what internal circadian time it is. The findings could open the door for developing new treatments for night shift workers, who make up about 20 percent of the global workforce and are at higher risk for diabetes and cancer. It could also enable doctors to precisely time administration of drugs, vaccines and diagnostic tests around the circadian clock. "If we know the proteins that the clock regulates, we can adjust timing of treatments to be in line with those proteins," said lead author Christopher Depner, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Integrative Physiology...Researchers drew blood every four hours and used technology recently developed by Boulder-based SomaLogic, Inc to assess levels and time-of-day-patterns of 1,129 proteins. They found 129 proteins whose patterns were thrown off by the simulated night shift.

Senator: There's a 'Very Real' Possibility Justice Kennedy is About to Retire, and I'm Told He Wants to Be Replaced By a Republican
Guy Benson |Posted: May 23, 2018 1:05 PM | TownHall

We've been writing about the possibility of a looming Supreme Court vacancy for some time now, having been informed by a very well-placed source last spring that Justice Anthony Kennedy was on the brink of retirement. Here we are more than a year later, and those rumors have only gained steam -- with the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee going so far as to urge Kennedy to get on with it and announce his intentions as soon as possible. Among the members of the Senate who are most plugged into the goings on of the Supreme Court -- out of both professional and family pedigree -- is Utah's Mike Lee, who also happens to be on President Trump's SCOTUS short list. Sen. Lee joined Benson & Harf last evening to discuss an array of topics, but his intriguing and thorough answer to my question about the Court piqued my interest. Skip ahead to the six minute mark for that piece of the exchange:

Cumbria and the Lake District: Spring 2018, No. 12

https://www.iancylkowski.com/cumbria-spring-2018/

It's possible to get up-close and personal with the top of Stockghyll Force in Ambleside, just make sure you've got a steady foot. When we hiked this gorge the day was rather hazy, producing a soft light that was perfect for shooting waterfalls. However, upon scrambling down to get to this view of Upper Stockghyll Force the sun finally broke through and illuminated the whole scene in golden light.

Day time driving around Lofoten

Making our way down through the Lofoten Archipelago, we stopped our car over a dozen times to check out the scenery. It really is incredible. Anyhow, one of the stops I decided to actually take a photo. See, I do take photos in the middle of the day… 😛

Anyhow, this may not be one of my prime landscapes I go for, but I just wanted to share a typical scene which is common around each and every corner in this little island group.

BGR Apple Sheep Talk Next-Gen Apple Chips

This is from BGR, so it has inherent bias baked in, but we do get a good idea of what's in store for iPhone users this year. The new chips will utilize the 7-nanometer construction technology. This means that they will be smaller and give a performance boost. This year there will also be three iPhone models with each model embracing some features that the iPhone X had last year. The top tier model will be like 6.5 inch iPhone X. The mid tier model will be the same size as the iPhone X, and the lowest tier will follow the design standards of traditional iPhones but with a fingerprint reader in the screen.
