Dutch Courage: Alcohol Improves Foreign Language Skills

It is well-established that alcohol impairs cognitive and motor functions. 'Executive functions', which include the ability to remember, pay attention, and inhibit inappropriate behaviours, are particularly sensitive to the acute effects of alcohol.

The research is in Journal of Psychopharmacology. (full access paywall)

Thomas Edison died OTD in 1931 at age 84 (born 11 Feb 1847).

Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor who held a world record 1,093 patents (including those held jointly) and created the world's first industrial research laboratory. He showed an early curiosity for explanations of how everything worked and was especially interested in chemistry. He began selling newspapers on the railroad at age 12, and learned how to operate a telegraph. In 1868, his first invention was an electric vote-recording machine. In 1869, he made improvements on the stock-ticker. In 1876 he moved his laboratory to Menlo Park, N.J., where he invented his phonograph (1877) and the first prototype of a commercially practical incandescent electric light bulb (1879). Other inventions included storage batteries, a dictaphone, and a mimeograph. By the late 1880s he made motion pictures, and by 1912 was experimenting with talking pictures. Edison developed electric power from central generating stations. He became known internationally as “the Wizard of Menlo Park.” In 1962 his second laboratory and home in West Orange, New Jersey, was designated a U.S. National Historic Site. Via TiS.

What are Porgs?

The world has been asking the question that has been on everyone's mind. What or who, are these wonderful looking creatures, that have captured the hearts of millions across the world. Porgs are a sea bird species that lives on the planet Ahch-To, where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker hid in exile. The creatures, who dwelled on the cliffs of the island, can build nests and fly. Male porgs were known to be slightly bigger in size than females. Baby porgs are called porglets. They’re the Star Wars version of puffins, which is a species of bird found in the North Pacific Ocean and in the North Atlantic Ocean. I think a lot of people are going to want a porg as a pet after watching the movie this December. Lucasfilm announced an upcoming kids’ book called, "Chewie and the Porgs." The plot of the book is unknown but not sure if the book will be officially Canon, or just a kids book. The book will be released simultaneously with the move, The last Jedi, on December 15, 2017.

What do you think of the Porgs?

Skogafoss, Iceland

The famous Skogafoss waterfall on Iceland's south-coast. One of the more famous waterfalls in Iceland, and it's easy to see why. This 60m high waterfall is not just beautiful, it's easily accessible, and easily admirable from below and above. There's a legend here at Skogafoss that there is treasure buried behind the fall, in a cave. It's said that Þrasi Þórólfsson (one of the first viking settlers in the region) buried the chest here when he arrived.

Rep. Frederica Wilson told NBC Miami that she heard the president's comment to Sgt. La David T. Johnson's widow, Myeshia, on a speakerphone as they traveled together to meet his body on Tuesday.

"He said, 'But you know he must've known what he signed up for,'" the Democrat recounted Trump saying more than once during the call to express his sympathy. According to Wilson, the conversation lasted somewhere from three to five minutes.

“The truth is that, more than any other observatory in history, the Hubble Space Telescope has changed how we view the Universe. Although other ground-based and space-based observatories have been built and will be flying that surpass Hubble on a number of fronts, for some classes of observing, it’s still the best tool humanity has ever created. But by the very nature of its orbit, not only is its lifetime finite, but its demise will come in a horrific, potentially dangerous fashion if we do nothing. Saving it for further use is a long-term project that requires planning now. Hubble is falling, and if we don’t take the steps to catch it soon, it will be too late.”

Orbiting at hundreds of miles above Earth’s atmosphere, you’d think the Hubble Space Telescope would be safe and stable for a long time. But despite our definitions, Earth’s atmosphere doesn’t “end” and space doesn’t “begin” when we get 60 miles (100 kilometers) up. Instead, Earth’s atmosphere continues, albeit tenuously, for incredible distances, until it eventually merges with the solar wind. It’s the fourth (of five) layers that contains the Hubble Space Telescope: the thermosphere. Although each oxygen molecule might travel for a kilometer before striking another, the presence of these molecules is enough to slowly produce a drag on Hubble. Over the timespan of years and decades, it loses altitude and begins to fall. If we do nothing, then by the late 2020s to the mid-2030s, it will uncontrollably de-orbit on its own. Our greatest optical observatory will be lost, and there are no plans to save it.

Come learn how the Hubble Space Telescope is falling, what we can do, and why we need to act now.
