The Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 115-113 in a matchup that featured a thrilling ending. The game was close after the first quarter, but the Timberwolves would build a 61-54 lead going into halftime, thanks in part to 13 points from Karl Anthony-Towns and 10 points from Andrew Wiggins. The Timberwolves would then push the lead to double-digits in the third quarter, making it 81-71 with 4:19 left.

In the fourth quarter, the Thunder managed to cut the lead to 104-102 on a Russell Westbrook three-pointer. Westbrook would later hit another three-pointer with 30 seconds remaining in the fourth to tie the game up at 110 apiece. However, the Timberwolves' Anthony-Towns would answer back with a floating jumpshot with 9 seconds remaining to give his team the slight edge. With the Thunder down 112-110, Westbrook would hand the ball off to Carmelo Anthony, who would hit a three-pointer with 5 seconds remaining to seemingly secure his team the victory. However, with no timeouts left, the ball was inbounded to Wiggins, who raced up the court and banked in a three-pointer at the buzzer to win the game.

Andrew Wiggins had 27 points (10/20 FG), 4 assists, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals.
Karl Anthony-Towns had 27 points (11/17 FG) and 12 rebounds.
Jeff Teague had 19 points (5/10 FG), 9 assists, and 6 rebounds.

Russell Westbrook had 31 points (5/8 3PT), 10 assists, and 5 rebounds.
Carmelo Anthony had 23 points (9/19 FG), 2 assists, 2 rebounds, and 3 steals.
Steven Adams had 17 points (8/12 FG), 3 assists, 13 rebounds, and 2 blocks.

Total Recall: The Woman Who Can’t Forget

The one thing we do know is rather vague: Memories live in the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex. After that, the entire question of how memory works is up for grabs. For example, where precisely in the hippocampus (or prefrontal cortex) is my memory of reading Kurt Vonnegut for the first time? If I try to summon that experience, I am likely to wind up with a blur—a half dozen indistinct recollections. And no brain-scan technology will help me bring it into better focus. So when I hear about Price's feats, my mind boggles. From the perspective of evolution, finding a human being with memory that works with the precision of a computer would be like finding someone with bones made of steel. The type of memory system we have—in technical terms, context-dependent rather than location-addressable—has been around for several hundred million years. The existence of a human brain that works completely differently is astronomically unlikely.

Research revises our knowledge of how the brain learns to fear

From the article: "Textbooks indicate that the lateral portion of the amygdala is the place where associations are forged between information provided by the senses and the perception of threat. That linkage is a crucial example of learning - what scientists call aversive learning... Li's team performed experiments... which surprised them. They suggest that while the lateral amygdala is involved in aversive learning, it is not the seat of the process. The new evidence points to the central amygdala instead. If correct, this could change approaches to modify memory to treat disorders such as anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)."

"Galaxy over Lake Ninan"

With all the clouds about, I've been watching the satellite pictures waiting for a gap. On Sunday night there appeared to be one around Lake Ninan so off I go in the evening (about two hour drive from Perth).

Waiting for the galaxy to set closer to the horizon (I had planned an epic "galaxy reflected in water" scene), I took a "warm-up" panorama in this 36 panel mosaic - which is probably just as well, as the light cloud that can be seen on the horizon pretty much came over within the hour and cut my session short.

Lake Ninan is sort of a mixed bag (at least for me). The first time there I was on the western side looking east (at the time thinking about getting the galaxy rising) but there are only some small stumps and short trees on the shore on the western side which makes for fairly boring shots. This image taken on the eastern shore is a bit more interesting as it has more (albeit dead) trees in the water providing nice reflections.

This is a 36 panel mosiac, with a tracking mount for the sky and turned off for the foreground, all camera settings were kept the same for all panels. Stitching in PTGui, colour calibration with Pixinsight, levels, saturation and contrast in Photoshop.

Enjoy, Will Vrbasso.

The colours of Iceland's Goðafoss

One of the the more graceful locations on the island. A crescent waterfall that looks amazing no matter what angle you're photographing it from. The water also spills into a beautiful canyon that seems to never get the attention it deserves. So, in order to get here, you need a bit more time than usual, as it's in the far north-east of the island. But for those making the journey around the entire island, it will definitely be a highlight of your trip.

Goðafoss, you're a stunner!

Galaxy Cluster WHL J24.3324-8.477

In this image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope, you can see the galaxy cluster WHL J24.3324-8.477, located in the constellation of Cetus (https://goo.gl/IPjSMw), about 7.1 billion light-years away from Earth.

The galaxy cluster WHL J24.3324-8.477 is located at the center of this image. The bright star with the diffraction spikes is a foreground star and doesn't belong to the cluster.

More information here:
https://www.spacetelescope.org/images/potw1743a/

What is a galaxy cluster?

A galaxy cluster is a group of sometimes up to thousands of galaxies bound together by gravity. Several galaxy clusters together can form a supercluster. More information here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galaxy_cluster

Diffraction spikes

In the image you can see a star with very pronounced spikes in the form of a cross. These spikes are called diffraction spikes and are caused by the struts that support Hubble's secondary mirror (https://goo.gl/zFd42g). The light is being diffracted around those support struts, generating the cross-formed spikes. They are only visible around point sources where a lot of light is concentrated in one small spot. Read more on it here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffraction_spike

The first toy tea sets appeared in the 16th century. These early sets, made in pewter and copper, came from Germany, a country known for producing toys in wood and metal. Before the era of faience and porcelain toy tea sets, most of them were made from metals, including gold and silver, pewter and copper. Silver and goldsmiths especially catered to the wishes of the young princesses of Europe. The advent of lithographing printing on tin brought a less expensive way of producing toy tea sets. Ones like this from Germany found their way into the hearts of many little girls from the early to mid- 20th- century.

To add to the other Pixel 2 XL screen issues, check out that jelly smear.

https://twitter.com/hallstephenj/status/922327260207747072
https://twitter.com/hallstephenj/status/922329787389104128

I noticed it right away on the first night, and it immediately reminded me of the OnePlus 5. Wasn't sure if it was normal or not. To those who say all OLEDs do this, I looked at the Pixel XL 2016, and I don't or barely see this smear even at low brightness.


Here's a quick demo of my own.
Left: Pixel 2 XL. Right: Pixel XL.

Look at the top of the picture in +Kellen Barranger's tweet and let the smear flow through you.

It is extremely easy to see the smear on Pixel 2 XL's panel, even with bumped up brightness. Just admit it, deniers, this panel is garbage.

The video is pretty shit (sorry), but it still shows just how much worse that jelly smear is on the Pixel 2 XL vs Pixel XL.
