Decoding Brain Function: Shedding Light On the Anterior Cingulate Cortex and Its Ties to Learning

After four years of lab testing and complex neuro-decoding, a research team led by UNLV psychology professor James Hyman has struck a major breakthrough that could open the floodgates for research into the anterior cingulate cortex, or ACC, and how human brains learn.

The research is in Neuron. (full access paywall)

Siri will now give you search results from Google instead of Bing

The next time you ask Siri a question, Apple's AI will finally offer up search results to help you find an answer using Google, like the rest of the civilized world.

Apple is dumping Microsoft's Bing as the default search platform for Siri, Search inside iOS, and Spotlight on Macs in favor of Google, according to Tech Crunch.

The iPhone maker said that the switch is being made in order to create a more "consistent web search experience" for its users, since Google is currently the default search engine on its Safari browser thanks to a reported $3 billion annual deal between the two companies.

Google doesn't get the whole Apple search pie, however. Bing will still offer up image search results for queries through Siri.

According to ESPN, who cited league sources, twelve-time NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade is nearing a commitment to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers and could finalize a decision by Wednesday.

Wade, who reached a contract buyout with the Chicago Bulls, will clear waivers on Wednesday and will become an unrestricted free-agent, allowing the guard to sign with Cleveland for the NBA's $2.3 million veterans minimum. League sources told ESPN that Wade was considering the Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs, and Miami Heat. However, Wade will instead rejoin his good friend LeBron James, whom he also won two championships with in Miami.

While Wade hasn't ruled out a future return to Miami, league sources informed ESPN that Wade's desire to join a contender outweighed the sentiment of a Miami reunion. Wade has also reconciled his Miami relationships after a difficult free-agent parting in 2016, sources told ESPN.

When you think about timely software updates, HTC is not really a manufacturer that comes to mind. Although, they have on some occasions managed to push out quick updates. Nevertheless, receiving an update at all is special in the Android world, regardless of how long it takes to actually receive the update. Now, HTC and Verizon have announced that they are rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat to the One M9.

It seems like the delayed update may (unsurprisingly) be Verizon's fault as this particular One M9 is the last of all U.S carrier variants to receive an update to 7.0 Nougat. Regardless, the Verizon update has a build number of 4.49.605.11, and includes the August 1st security patches. The update also brings all the goodies from Nougat, including split-screen mode, enhanced doze, and much more.

The Vatican is constantly monitoring the heavens with the L.U.C.I.F.E.R. telescope, whilst secretly preparing for the arrival of their alien Masters.

They seem to be intentionally creating something that is going to position the Roman Catholic Church at the forefront of an official E.T. disclosure: #UFO #Aliens #ForbiddenHistory http://humansarefree.com/2017/01/the-vatican-is-controlling-history.html

If We Are To Remember -- Moab, Utah
"If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology. We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it."

“We must not only protect the country side and save it from destruction, we must restore what has been destroyed and salvage the beauty and charm. Once our natural splendor is destroyed, it can never be recaptured. And once man can no longer walk with beauty or wonder at nature, his spirit will wither and his sustenance be wasted.”

-- Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States

Rams Planet

Close enough to the highest point in mainland Oz i reckon.

Rams Head North 2190m, noting that Mount Kosciuszko is 2228m a grand total of 38m taller..:) Mount Kosciuszko is that sloping hill over there on the horizon. Fun fact for the day, Mount Everest is almost exactly 4 times taller than this peak, i guess technically I can say I have walked a quarter of the way to the highest point in the world. :)

Another fun fact, Norway has about 180 peaks over 2000 metres high but its tallest is only 2469m, just a smidge over our little hill over here.

Sun-Centered Galaxy

There's an interesting problem in astronomy. When we measure the motion of a star, it is relative to the motion of the Sun. We can't measure the motion of the star relative to something else, such as the center of our galaxy. So how do we know that stars in the Milky Way orbit the center of the galaxy?

A Brain Built From Atomic Switches Can Learn

A tiny self-organized mesh full of artificial synapses recalls its experiences and can solve simple problems. Its inventors hope it points the way to devices that match the brain’s energy-efficient computing prowess. Brains, beyond their signature achievements in thinking and problem solving, are paragons of energy efficiency. The human brain’s power consumption resembles that of a 20-watt incandescent lightbulb. In contrast, one of the world’s largest and fastest supercomputers, the K computer in Kobe, Japan, consumes as much as 9.89 megawatts of energy — an amount roughly equivalent to the power usage of 10,000 households. Yet in 2013, even with that much power, it took the machine 40 minutes to simulate just a single second’s worth of 1 percent of human brain activity. Now engineering researchers at the California NanoSystems Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, are hoping to match some of the brain’s computational and energy efficiency with systems that mirror the brain’s structure. They are building a device, perhaps the first one, that is “inspired by the brain to generate the properties that enable the brain to do what it does,” according to Adam Stieg, a research scientist and associate director of the institute, who leads the project with Jim Gimzewski, a professor of chemistry at UCLA._
