Highly precise wiring in the cerebral cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the cerebral cortex of mammals, where, among other things, vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are computed. Here, the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space. The researchers report online in Nature that synapses in this region of the brain are sorted very precisely along the electrical cables of the nerve cells. The nerve cells establish an unexpectedly precise circuit motive in which inhibitory nerve cells are contacted before the activation of the next nerve cell can be executed. This motif of nerve cell "trios" is a core connectivity motif in the cerebral cortex. Scientists speculate that such a highly precise circuit motive could be used for computing hypotheses about the next step in space. Connectomics researchers have now used their repertoire of measuring and analysis techniques to study the part of the cerebral cortex in which grid cells provide a very particular representation of the space around the individual animal or human. These grid cells are active when the animal or human is located at highly ordered grid-like locations in a room or a large space. Previously, scientists had already found a special arrangement of nerve cells in this region of the brain, and had speculated that within these special cell assemblies, particular nerve cell circuits could exist.

Concussion rules are “ruining the game”. President Nero thinks black football players should serve and die for his entertainment.

I’m surprised he didn’t advocate whipping them for disrespecting him. He certainly talks like a slave owner.

The man is sick. No, he’s beyond sick. He is evil.

60 years since Sputnik | ESA Euronews
Sixty years ago, Sputnik became the first satellite in space and changed the world forever. Launched by the Soviet Union on October 4, 1957, this shiny orb kick-started the space race, and opened up the heavens for mankind to explore.

To mark the occasion, European Space Agency (ESA) Euronews arranged access to the private museum of RSC Energia, the Russian state company that actually built the world’s first satellite, officially called Sputnik-1. Hanging in this Moscow treasure trove of pioneering space probes is one of the original Sputnik flight spares, built in 1957. Compact, at just over 80 kilograms, its polished surfaces and distinctive antennae are now unmistakable—look at this satellite, and the first word in your mind is 'Sputnik'.

“I was reading about Saturn’s moon Enceladus, and how scientists believe it has liquid water oceans beneath its water-ice crust. And yet I also read that the warmest surface temperatures are -90 celsius. How can this moon have liquid water? […] At such cold temperatures and low pressures it seems Enceladus can have water ice and water gas but not liquid. What am I missing?”

Here on Earth, water can easily exist in all three phases of matter: solid, liquid, and gas. The reason for this is simple: Earth has the right range of temperatures and pressures to experience not just the common solid and gas phases, but the liquid water phase, too. In the outer Solar System, worlds like Europa, Enceladus, and Pluto are too far from the Sun to ever reach surface temperatures high enough to create a liquid phase; it seems that water is a no-go. But there must be subsurface oceans on these worlds! Not only is there geological evidence of an ocean beneath a thick layer of ice, but on some worlds, like Enceladus, we can actually see large plumes of liquid water ejected hundreds of kilometers above the surface, like some sort of planet-scale geyser. While the increased pressure from the ice plays a role, it isn’t enough on its own; there must be other factors, too.

How do worlds that never get above freezing actually come to have liquid water on their surfaces? Find out on this week’s Ask Ethan!

The Aztec capital was built on an island in the middle of a lake. Over centuries, the lake was drained and the Spanish city expanded. In short, that is why the recent M7.1 earthquake was so devastating. The article explains it in greater detail.

New this week: YouTube Sponsorships, Google+ Bulk Moderation, new Project Fi phone and more

This week there are updates and tips for YouTubers, live streamers, Google Plussers, webmasters, photographers and much more!

* YouTube announced a new way for Creators to make money: Sponsorships. Fans can sponsor your channel for a small amount each month, and in return they get access to private chats, custom live chat badge and emoji and more. The catch? Sponsorships are currently only available to gaming channels. If you don’t have a gaming channel, you can submit an interest form.

* While YouTube said hello to Sponsorships, it bid goodbye to Paid channels and videos. Current paid channels will only be available through the end of November.

* Also this week, the YouTube Video Editor and Photo Slideshows was retired. While there are decent free video editing apps for Windows, Mac and most mobile devices, creators with Chromebooks unfortunately have few alternative options.

* The YouTube Creator Studio app is now officially YT Studio, and has some nice new features, including post scheduling and a prominent subscriber-count card. And, speaking of subscriber counts, there is now more detailed subscriber reports in YouTube Analytics.

* Should game content owners be able to revoke permission to stream Let's Play videos? Even if you don’t care for PewDiePie’s shtick, it seems a little much for game companies to use a copyright takedown, rather than clearly stated license terms, to prevent their game from being associated with offensive content are overstepping their bounds.

* Google+ Community Moderators can now moderate Ask-to-Join requests in bulk

* G Suite Admins can now set restrictions on what content people interact with and share on Google+

* Google announced an affordable new phone: the Android One moto x4, which is only available in the United States on the Project Fi network. There is also a new trade-in program that lets your trade in your old phone for money towards a new moto x4.

* Outside the Googleverse, Facebook has been increasingly under fire for the automated advertising sales, including selling political ads to a “Russian entity” and allowing ad-targeting to “Jew haters” and other offensive categories.

In response, Facebook has agreed to provide the political ads sold to the Russian propagandists and “related information” to a US Congressional investigation. To prevent similar issues in the future, they will make political advertising more transparent and strengthen their ad review process. They also removed the offensive ad targeting option, and say they will not add new targeting options without human approval. We're not obsolete quite yet.

Diamonds show Earth still capable of ‘superhot’ surprises | #Geology #GeologyPage

Diamonds may be ‘forever’ but some may have formed more recently than geologists thought. A study of 26 diamonds, formed under extreme melting conditions in the Earth’s mantle, found two populations, one of which has geologically ‘young’ ages.

The degree to which we have parasitic and predatory values within a culture, is the degree to which we become the authors of our own poverty in that cultural context. Instead of money that could be pointed at progress, or to serve to prepare some family for their future, donate to charity, or do any other number of purposes that are not aligned with those that benefit an already well endowed corporation, Apple apparently artificially draws those resources toward itself.

The real shock is, this is not a shock. When a company breaks trust like this we may do well to consider the fact that this breach of trust is not done in a vacuum, that a corporation, especially one arguably in what is close to a monopolistic position, that betrays the well being of its customers to benefit itself, is not worth trusting. If these parasitic values are what it chooses to hold, we can expect to see the relational dynamic expressed through its behaviors on many different scales. It is up to us to police this kind of thing with our collective voice. The alternative is allowing ourselves to be invited to dinner - not as a guest, but as part of the meal.

Today, we have The New York Times and The Washington Post repeatedly publishing front-page articles about allegations that some #Russians with “links” to the Kremlin bought $100,000 in #Facebook ads to promote some issues deemed hurtful to #HillaryClinton’s campaign although some of the ads ran after the election.

Initially, Facebook could find no evidence of even that small effort but was pressured in May by Sen. #MarkWarner, D-Virginia. The Washington Post reported that Warner, who is spearheading the #RussiaGate investigation in the Senate Intelligence Committee, flew to Silicon Valley and urged Facebook executives to take another look at possible ad buys.

Facebook responded to this congressional pressure by scouring its billions of monthly users and announced that it had located 470 suspect accounts associated with ads totaling $100,000 – out of Facebook’s $27 billion in annual revenue.

Here is how the Times described those findings: “Facebook officials disclosed that they had shut down several hundred accounts that they believe were created by a Russian company linked to the Kremlin and used to buy $100,000 in ads pushing divisive issues during and after the American election campaign.” (It sometimes appears that every Russian — all 144 million of them — is somehow “linked” to the Kremlin.)

Breaking: Carmelo Anthony traded to Oklahoma City Thunder

The New York Knicks have agree to trade 10-time All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for center Enes Kanter, forward Doug McDermott, and a 2018 second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.

After New York was unable to negotiate a deal with the Houston Rockets, the team insisted that Anthony expand his list of teams. Anthony later expanded the list to include the Cleveland Cavaliers and Oklahoma City Thunder. Apparently, New York was able to come to an agreement with Oklahoma City that would allow the forward to team up with reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook and All-Star forward Paul George.

The deal is not complete yet as Anthony would first have to waive his no-trade clause and accept the trade. However, sources tell ESPN that "Anthony will sign a letter of authorization granting permission to be traded to Oklahoma City and that letter will be part of the trade call on Monday."

Anthony, who has two years and $54 million left on his contract, averaged 22.4 points. 5.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game last season with the Knicks.

A Lover's Touch Eases Pain as Heartbeats, Breathing Sync

A study, released in June 2017, found that when an empathetic partner holds the hand of a woman in pain, their heart and respiratory rates sync and her pain dissipates.

“The more empathic the partner and the stronger the analgesic effect, the higher the synchronization between the two when they are touching,” said lead author Pavel Goldstein, a postdoctoral pain researcher in the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab at CU Boulder.

The study of 22 couples, published in the journal Scientific Reports, is the latest in a growing body of research on “interpersonal synchronization,” the phenomenon in which individuals begin to physiologically mirror the people they’re with.

The new study, co-written with University of Haifa Professor Simone Shamay-Tsoory and Assistant Professor Irit Weissman-Fogel, is the first to explore interpersonal synchronization in the context of pain and touch. The authors hope it can inform the discussion as health care providers seek opioid-free pain relief options.

Further research is necessary to figure out precisely how a partner’s touch eases pain. Goldstein suspects interpersonal synchronization may play a role, possibly by affecting an area of the brain called the anterior cingulate cortex, which is associated with pain perception, empathy, and heart and respiratory function.
