The ideas, coupled with the stimuli we bond with, and how we value them, appear to shape our biology, and by extension, our experience of life. Pavlovian dogs all?

Even Just The Smell of Coffee Could Actually Perk Up Your Brain, Study Shows

"...The researchers think some sort of placebo effect might be happening, where an expected increase in performance ends up leading to an actual increase."

Researchers move closer to completely optical artificial neural network - Researchers have shown that it is possible to train artificial neural networks directly on an optical chip. The significant breakthrough demonstrates that an optical circuit can perform a critical function of an electronics-based artificial neural network and could lead to less expensive, faster and more energy efficient ways to perform complex tasks such as speech or image recognition.

Rio Grande and Santa Elena Canyon

The Rio Grande as it winds through the incredible Santa Elena Canyon in Big Bend National Park. The crown Jewel of the park and a site I return to again and again.

This is the border. Mexico is the left wall

Sunrise

I kinda missed sunrise since I slept in, however I did catch a few nice rays since it was only a few steps from the tent to this view :)

Tent view.

Not too bad i say. Note the nicely placed shovel and camp stove (melting some snow for a coffee), if you did not know better you would think this is a Advertorial ;)

On that point, the shovel (voile), best thing ever, at 700grams this thing is awesome, they (the manufacturer) do have a blurb about it that the material (6061-t6) has a tensile strength of 42ksi which rivals the strength and rigidity of steel, well i suppose thats kinda correct depending on the steel your comparing it too :) - like many things which advertise 'aerospace' materials or some crap I always have a chuckle at these kind of statements, i'll forgive Voile in this case since they do make a cracking shovel and it is very tough and rigid :)

Since I am plugging some product, the stove (msr windburner) is also awesome, they don't claim any 'aerospace' materials, however i have seen worse welding and material on the exhaust of several large aircraft :) the canister thing on these stoves is quite impressive, super light and simple as but seems pretty tough, the little burner section is a work of engineering art, can't fault it, i'll give it to MSR, they know how to make great products, albeit expensive..

Boils a bunch of snow in a matter of minutes and yup.. i can confirm it works really well in strong wind... the only problem is getting it lit in the first place :)

Note my nice little footwell in the snow next to the tent, best little trick Mike Edmondson showed me last year, makes me look less like one of the spiders in the hobbit movie (#2) when extracting or stowing myself inside the tent ;), I can also sit in the tent without having my knees around my ears. Brilliant.

According to recent speculation, the Samsung Gear S4 smartwatch may be released under the name Galaxy Watch and it may be based on Google's Wear OS operating system rather than Samsung's preferred Tizen platform.

Fuchsia COULD replace Android in 5 years.

Could Fuchsia replace the world's most popular operating system in 5 years? Sure, anything's possible. Especially since Android will be 15 years old and technology moves along quite fast. You can only band aid and rewrite fix things so many times before it's better to start all over again with something else. So, yeah, I could see this report being true.

Alternatives to Chrome are important. Google hasn't learned from Microsoft and uses similar arguments as Microsoft did to defend its bundling practices.
