Fungus, unknown species

Svartskog, Norway

This autumn has been the most amazing when it comes to mushroom diversity and numbers, but in the first week of November I found only inconspicuous and to me unknown species.

This one I found amongst the lichen and moss on the western slopes near the ocean where the very low hanging November sun still was able to warm the ground on its way towards the horizon. In summer this location would dry up quickly in the sun and there would be no sign of fungi.

How ECT Relieves Depression: Mouse Study

In a study using genetically engineered mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have uncovered some new molecular details that appear to explain how electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) rapidly relieves severe depression in mammals, presumably including people. The molecular changes allow more communication between neurons in a specific part of the brain also known to respond to antidepressant drugs.

The research is in Neuropsychopharmacology. (full access paywall)

In the weeks after he became the Republican nominee on July 19, 2016, Donald Trump was warned that foreign adversaries, including Russia, would probably try to spy on and infiltrate his campaign, according to multiple government officials familiar with the matter.

The warning came in the form of a high-level counterintelligence briefing by senior FBI officials, the officials said. A similar briefing was given to Hillary Clinton, they added. They said the briefings, which are commonly provided to presidential nominees, were designed to educate the candidates and their top aides about potential threats from foreign spies.

More on Trump's revision of himself.
His lies don't work on people with functioning memories.

From the article linked below:

In the wake of what should be a humbling, if not humiliating, loss in the ruby red state of Alabama, Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to calm his supporters and exonerate himself from any blame.

“Remember, Republicans are 5-0 in Congressional Races this year,” he tweeted Monday morning. “The media refuses to mention this. I said Gillespie and Moore would lose (for very different reasons), and they did. I also predicted ‘I’ would win. Republicans will do well in 2018, very well!”

...I don’t recall Trump predicting that Ed Gillespie would lose the governorship in Virginia—or that Roy Moore would lose the Senate race in Alabama. I’m pretty sure he endorsed both losers in the general election, and that it would have been huge news if the Republican standard bearer had made such a prediction before an election. In fact, the liberal media would have blamed him for the losses.

_What Trump did do, however, is retroactively declare that he had predicted their political demise. We have to take his word for this revisionist history, I suppose. But why even point it out? Is the benefit of being considered a terrific prognosticator worth the cost of kicking a man when he’s down? Is being Nate Silver better than being Dale Carnegie? It is if you divide the world into winners and losers, and assume that losers get what they deserve. _

In terms of congressional special elections, it’s important to note that gerrymandering—whether that’s in order to help Republicans win or to ensure that a minority-majority district gets representation—has skewed things. Roy Moore managed to lose Alabama, even though he won six of the seven Congressional districts there. So it’s very possible that Republicans salvage a majority, even as they incur the wrath of a Democratic wave election. Some waves are so big, however, that no man-made wall can save you. And make no mistake, a storm is brewing. All you have to do is look at the numbers. And here, Trump’s penchant for tallying up “wins” and “losses” can be very misleading.

....This 538 post-Alabama piece includes a shocking data point: “There have been more than 70 special elections for state and federal legislative seats in 2017 so far ...Democrats have outperformed the partisan lean in 74 percent of these races.”

...Trump’s failure to grapple with reality could have consequences. A clear-eyed leader would recognize that the train is off the track, and make corrections.

...What we are witnessing here is the work of a blame-shifter, not a leader. Trump doesn’t look like he wants to make any corrections, but why should he care? If the midterms go badly he can just make another excuse. In fact, I’m predicting that we may very well see Trump tweet someday that he predicted Republicans would “lose the House in 2018.” You know, he’s never wrong.
