Autism risk determined by health of mom's gut, research reveals

The risk of developing autism-spectrum disorders is determined by the mother's microbiome—the collection of microorganisms that naturally live inside us—during pregnancy, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests. The work raises the possibility that preventing forms of autism could be as simple as an expectant mom modifying her diet or taking custom probiotics. Further, the UVA scientists were able to use their discovery to prevent the development of autism-like neurodevelopmental disorders in lab mice. They found they could halt the development of such disorders by blocking a particular inflammatory molecule produced by the immune system. Targeting this molecule, interleukin-17a, offers another potential avenue for preventing autism in people, the researchers say. They caution, however, that this approach would be much more complex because of the risk of side effects. "We determined that the microbiome is a key contributor in determining susceptibility [to autism-like disorders], so it suggests that you could target either the maternal microbiome or this inflammatory molecule, IL-17a," said lead researcher John Lukens, Ph.D., of UVA's Department of Neuroscience. "You could also use this [IL-17a] as a biomarker for early diagnosis."_

Trump has a long history of un-empathic narcissistic behavior.
His supporters think this is one of his strengths...

The article below raises a challenge for them:

But how would those supporters feel about Trump if they confronted a man so cold that he refused to help an elderly man in need of aid, instead, calling him “disgusting?” That’s just what happened, as exposed in a video by digital news company, Now This.

You’re looking at the centre of our galactic home, the Milky Way, as imaged by 64 radio telescopes in the South African wilderness.

Scientists released this image to inaugurate the completed MeerKAT radio telescope. But these scopes form part of an even more ambitious project: The Square Kilometre Array, a joint effort to build the world’s largest telescope, spanning the continents of Africa and Australia.

This image shows filaments of particles, structures that seem to exist in alignment with the galaxy’s central black hole.

It’s unclear what causes these filaments. Maybe they are particles ejected by the spinning black hole; maybe they are hypothesised “cosmic strings”; and maybe they’re not unique, and there are other, similar structures waiting to be found, according to a 2017 release from Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

“This image from MeerKAT is awesome to me because the fine filaments seen in the radio image are excellent tracers of the galactic magnetic field, something we don’t get to see in most optical and infrared data,” Erin Ryan, principal investigator at the SETI Institute, told Gizmodo.

Trump Biggest Political Spender on Facebook

Academic study aggregates Facebook's new tracking of political ads. So, Trump and his PAC are the biggest spenders despite Trump not running for office.

"Recent Facebook ads purchased and placed by Mr. Trump’s operation show a similar style of testing, often running a dozen versions of an ad. This week, for example, Mr. Trump’s operation has run dozens of ads on the social network, which seek to rally support to confirm Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh to the vacant spot on the Supreme Court."
