Children With Fragile X Syndrome Have a Bias Toward Threatening Emotion

Anxiety occurs at high rates in children with fragile X syndrome (FXS), the most common form of inherited intellectual disability. Children with co-occurring anxiety tend to fare worse, but it can be hard to identify in infants.

Check out our Android Media Controller Tool APK

Get the code here:

Android provides a powerful set of media APIs that make it possible for multiple apps to work together to play media. This makes it easy for existing mobile apps that use audio services to integrate with Android Auto, Android Wear, the Google Assistant, and even other apps in the Android ecosystem (e.g.

A good way to test these integrations is to use the products directly (e.g. using your media app with Android Auto). This is great for QA, but not ideal for development. A bug in a media app may only be exposed if Android Auto calls the API in a very specific order. Android developers may prefer to have an app that can quickly test all of the APIs, to ensure that Android Auto, Wear, or the Google Assistant can use them in any order.

We built the Android Media Controller tool to give developers another way to test media apps. This tool is an APK that uses the same TransportControls as Auto, Wear, and the Google Assistant for connecting to a MediaSession, playing media from a search, and playing a specific media item based on a media ID. Developers can use this tool to connect to their app and test all of the TransportControls in the Android Support Library and Android framework.

In order to utilize this tool, your app must allow connections to its MediaBrowserService. See how to control client connections to your MediaSession with onGetRoot() -

Red supergiant star Antares: Artist’s impression | ESO
This artist’s impression shows the red supergiant star Antares in the constellation of Scorpius. Using ESO’s Very Large Telescope Interferometer astronomers have constructed the most detailed image ever of this, or any star other than the Sun. Using the same data they have also made the first map of the velocities of material the atmosphere of a star other than the Sun.

Those who attended Gamescom had the opportunity to try out the latest build of Dragon Ball FighterZ. We've seen some great tech already floating around, but for this particular story we're going to focus on aesthetics instead.

Several Twitter users have shared images on social media showcasing the colors for the newly announced combatants. This includes all four colors for Piccolo, Krillin, Trunks, Android 16, and Android 18.

Additionally, we get to see a screenshot of two full teams all color coordinated with the red color. This includes an alternate color for Vegeta.

Is there anyone left (on Left or Right) who doesn't yet understand that the Deplorables don't love their Leadless Fearer for his facts, but for his ability to influence the mob of which they are a part?

The more outraged sensible people are -- even reluctantly-sensible people like Republicans and media personalities -- at his behavior, the more they cackle in glee at how they're Taking Back America and Making It Great again.

It doesn't matter what Lord Dampnut tells them, or what he plans to do; what matters is that other people don't like it. (Anyone who opposes He Who Must Not Be Blamed becomes the enemy -- and to this mentality, the more your enemy dislikes it, the better it must be.)

By being outraged at how outrageous his statements are, we're not only overlooking the problem, we're helping to feed it.

I'm not saying we shouldn't be outraged; just that being vocally outraged -- putting energy into broadcasting how outrageous we think it is -- isn't going to anything to stop it, and may actually encourage it.

We need to figure out what will actually work to stop it.

Short of a massive advertising campaign -- for which all the necessary money is owned by people who are fine with social chaos as long as the quarterly projections are met -- or legally removing him from office (for which we have to trust that certain processes are functioning properly, largely out of sight), I don't have a civil solution.

NASA's Chandra Suggests Rare Explosion Created Our Galaxy's Youngest Black Hole
Supernova Remnant W49B

New data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory suggest a highly distorted supernova remnant may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy. The remnant appears to be the product of a rare explosion in which matter is ejected at high speeds along the poles of a rotating star.

The remnant, called W49B, is about a thousand years old as seen from Earth and located about 26,000 light-years away.

"W49B is the first of its kind to be discovered in the galaxy," said Laura Lopez, who led the study at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "It appears its parent star ended its life in a way that most others don't."

Usually when a massive star runs out of fuel, the central region of the star collapses, triggering a chain of events that quickly culminate in a supernova explosion. Most of these explosions are generally symmetrical, with the stellar material blasting away more or less evenly in all directions.

However, in the W49B supernova, material near the poles of the doomed rotating star was ejected at a much higher speed than material emanating from its equator. Jets shooting away from the star's poles mainly shaped the supernova explosion and its aftermath.

The remnant now glows brightly in X-rays and other wavelengths, offering the evidence for a peculiar explosion. By tracing the distribution and amounts of different elements in the stellar debris field, researchers were able to compare the Chandra data to theoretical models of how a star explodes. For example, they found iron in only half of the remnant while other elements such as sulfur and silicon were spread throughout. This matches predictions for an asymmetric explosion.

"In addition to its unusual signature of elements, W49B also is much more elongated and elliptical than most other remnants," said co-author Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz of the University of California at Santa Cruz. "This is seen in X-rays and several other wavelengths and points to an unusual demise for this star."

Because supernova explosions are not well understood, astronomers want to study extreme cases like the one that produced W49B. The relative proximity of W49B also makes it extremely useful for detailed study.

The authors examined what sort of compact object the supernova explosion left behind. Most of the time, massive stars that collapse into supernovas leave a dense, spinning core called a neutron star. Astronomers often can detect neutron stars through their X-ray or radio pulses, although sometimes an X-ray source is seen without pulsations. A careful search of the Chandra data revealed no evidence for a neutron star. The lack of such evidence implies a black hole may have formed.

"It's a bit circumstantial, but we have intriguing evidence the W49B supernova also created a black hole," said co-author Daniel Castro, also of MIT. "If that is the case, we have a rare opportunity to study a supernova responsible for creating a young black hole."

Supernova explosions driven by jets like the one in W49B have been linked to gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) in other objects. GRBs, which have been seen only in distant galaxies, also are thought to mark the birth of a black hole. There is no evidence the W49B supernova produced a GRB, but it may have properties - including being jet-driven and possibly forming a black hole - that overlap with those of a GRB.

The new results on W49B, which were based on about two-and-a-half days of Chandra observing time, appear in a paper in Sunday's issue of the Astrophysical Journal. The other co-author was Sarah Pearson from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.
