Nice letters to the editor observation from the LA Times...

"To the editor: This latest attempt by Senate Republicans to take healthcare away from tens of millions of Americans brings to mind the words that U.S. Army attorney Joseph Welch directed toward Sen. Joseph McCarthy about his allegations of communism in the Army.

Welch’s words apply today to Republican senators:

“Until this moment, senator, I think I have never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness…. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?”

John F. Rossmann, Tustin"

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.

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.

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.

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.

Edit: The data alone in the original study does not allow anyone to conclusively determine whether their phone is any slower, but the evidence especially when compared to Samsung is arguably suggestive

The NFL did not recruit a single player based on his opinion of anything. Therefore paying them while they wear the uniform and make a statement is wrong. They are prohibited from certain end-zone celebrations, not allowed to do commercials in uniform, so why on earth do they allow this disrespect to our flag? They will let the armed services fly over the stadium and hold flags. There is a simple solution that I have said several times and even sent to the NFL. Play the National Anthem before the players take the field. This denies NO ONE their right to free speech/protest. If these players want to not stand for the anthem, let them go to a local football game in their regular clothes and do it.

Back in the 1960s, the linguist and political activist Noam Chomsky claimed that the human brain is hardwired with an innate understanding of language. This became known as the Universal Grammar theory, and was offered as an explanation of the speed at which children tend to learn their first language. Genetically, the human mind is predisposed to making sense of words and arranging them in a logical sequence as we overcome the initial disorder of learning a language.
