Afternoon slump in reward response

Activation of a reward-processing brain region peaks in the morning and evening and dips at 2 p.m., finds a study of healthy young men published in The Journal of Neuroscience. This finding may parallel the drop in alertness people tend to feel in mid-afternoon. Greg Murray and colleagues compared activation of the brain's reward system in 16 men during a gambling task at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. They found that activation in the left putamen was lowest in the early afternoon. The result contrasts with previous research showing that people report being in the best mood—a subjective measure of reward activation—at this time. The authors suggest that activation is greater in the morning and evening because rewards are not expected at these times. Understanding the timing of reward response could have implications for the treatment of disorders in which symptoms fluctuate throughout the day, such as depression, substance abuse and sleep disturbances. This work also calls into question neuroimaging studies that do not control for or report the time of day when scanning took place.

Solar Eclipse 2017 - Low-tech with great results

In this animation of images made by +Helen Read you can see today's Solar eclipse (https://goo.gl/ztB3Yo) with a maximum coverage of about 60% at her location.

Today you will of course be flooded with images of the solar eclipse (and with good reason, it really is interesting!), but I like these images because they show what kind of results you can get, even with relatively simple technology.

Read here what Helen said about making this animation:

The images were taken using an Android smartphone (Moto X Pure Edition) held up to a 28 mm (2" diameter) eyepiece on an 8" Dobsonian telescope. The only processing I did was to crop the images (and flip them to reverse the mirror image coming from the Dob). I used the Google Photos animation tool to make the animation, easy peasy.

I have an adapter for mounting my phone on a 1.25" telescope eyepiece but couldn't get the entire Sun in the field of view that way, so I just held the phone by hand over a 2" eyepiece. The exposure was hit or miss, but you can nonetheless see sunspots in some of the frames.

I would say the result is quite impressive!

The Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) was built to provide a distinct perspective on our planet.

(The only total solar eclipse of 2016)

The animation above was assembled from 13 images acquired on March 9, 2016, by NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), a four-megapixel charge-coupled device (CCD) and Cassegrain telescope on the DSCOVR satellite. Click on the link below the animation to download the individual images from the series.

“What is unique for us is that being near the Sun-Earth line, we follow the complete passage of the lunar shadow from one edge of the Earth to the other,” said Adam Szabo, NASA’s project scientist for DSCOVR. “A geosynchronous satellite would have to be lucky to have the middle of an eclipse at noon local time for it. I am not aware of anybody ever capturing the full eclipse in one set of images or video.”

In this, the only total solar eclipse of 2016, the shadow of the new Moon starts crossing the Indian Ocean and marches past Indonesia and Australia into the open waters and islands of Oceania (Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia) and the Pacific Ocean. Note how the shadow moves in the same direction as Earth rotates. The bright spot in the center of each disk is sunglint—the reflection of sunlight directly back at the EPIC camera.


From its position about 1.6 million kilometers (1 million miles) from Earth and toward the Sun, DSCOVR maintains a constant view of the sunlit face of the planet. EPIC acquires images using ten different spectral filters—from ultraviolet to near infrared—to produce a variety of science products. Natural-color images are generated by combining three separate monochrome exposures (red, green, and blue channels) taken in quick succession.

According to Szabo, the satellite normally collects images at all ten wavelengths about once every 108 minutes (with just one image at full resolution). For this eclipse, the EPIC team collected full-resolution images every 20 minutes on just the red, green, and blue channels. This allowed the satellite to collect 13 images spanning the entire four hours and twenty minutes of the eclipse.

Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR)

In addition to the EPIC camera, DSCOVR carries the National Institute of Standards and Technology Advanced Radiometer (NISTAR), an instrument that measures how much solar energy is being radiated back into space from Earth. In coming weeks, scientists will be analyzing NISTAR data to quantify how the eclipse changed the incoming and outgoing radiation for those few hours.

Situated in a stable orbit between the Sun and Earth, DSCOVR’s primary mission is to monitor the solar wind for space weather forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Its secondary mission is to provide daily color views of our planet as it rotates through the day. The satellite was built and launched through a partnership between NASA, NOAA, and the U.S. Air Force.

Solving the Problem: What Is Under Your Bed? (https://goo.gl/uoaLRJ)

Have you considered what is under your bed lately? You are more likely to think of dust bunnies than the deadly clowns of your childhood, but stump one toe on the way to the bathroom and you might reconsider a night light! This is the way that manufacturing and production have to come together to rethink the means that products are used and delivered to clients. The lighting is beneficial to clients because it reimagines a way to be useful in the world.

This is the way that we reach out to our clients with electronic equipment failure. Our goal is to recreate the way that you feel when you first take your electronics unit out of the box. You trust it is going to work correctly, right?

We want you to trust our work that way too so we include a 24-month (twice the industry standard) parts and labor guarantee.

Learn more about the way that night lights and night-time safety are being reconsidered at https://goo.gl/uoaLRJ.

Ready to talk to an +ACS Industrial Services, Inc. expert customer contact representatives about your electronics repair? If so, we are ready to talk to you!

All you have to do is check us out online at https://goo.gl/k3u6h7 or call 800-605-6419. Let's talk about your repair today! #electronics #repairs #equipment

The Great American Eclipse

🌕🌔🌓🌒🌑🌘🌗🌖🌕

Today's eclipse was the first total solar eclipse visible from most of the continental United States since 1979. Millions of people travelled to experience the celestial event along the 70-mile-wide path of totality that spanned the width of the country from Oregon to South Carolina.

This high resolution imagery of the Moon's shadow passing over the United States was captured by the GOES-16 satellite. It is the first of the next generation of geosynchronous environmental satellites jointly operated by NASA and NOAA that will provide atmospheric and surface measurements of Earth. Data from the GOES system is used for weather forecasting, severe storm tracking, space weather monitoring, and meteorological research.

The Chrome OS team is working hard to make sure Android apps run properly on Chrome OS, but it is taking a bit longer than the team originally anticipated. This summer, over a dozen Chromebooks have gotten access to the Play Store and Android apps, but only on the Beta Channel. Now, four more Chromebooks have gained access to the Play Store and Android apps in the Chrome OS Stable Channel.

The four models that now have access to the Play Store in the Chrome OS Stable Channel are the ASUS Chromebook Flip C302, Dell Chromebook 3189, Lenovo Chromebook N22, and Lenovo IdeaPad N42 Chromebook. Three of the four models listed are Chromebooks directed towards the education market, but many will be happy to hear that the consumer-directed ASUS Chromebook Flip C302 now has access to Android apps in the Stable Channel.

Here is a copy of the planned "protests" riots that ANTIFA and BLM as well as other George Soros paid rioters are planning. Please remember it is up to us to protect our neighborhoods, not the job of the police. If they are given "stand down orders" and obey YOU are the last line of defense. Use it wisely and remember to say NOT IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. God Bless you all, stay safe, watch your six, and keep your powder dry. An Armed society is a polite society.
