Dream A Little Dream… - Dreams aren’t just for kids, and the truth is that you don’t ever have to give them up.  Growing up doesn’t mean that your dreams have to go away.  I’ve often heard about people who say that they “gave up their dreams” to become parents, or to take a job that was less meaningful, and… The post Dream A Little Dream… appeared first on BayArt.

On the Origin of Complex Life

"Complex life, as we know it, started completely by chance, with small strands of molecules linking up, which eventually would have given them the ability to replicate themselves.

In this world, billions of years ago, nothing existed that we would recognise today as living. The world contained only lifeless molecules that formed spontaneously through the natural chemical and physical processes on Earth.

However, the moment that small molecules connected and formed larger molecules with the ability to replicate themselves, life started to evolve.

"Life was a chance event, there is no doubt about that," says Dr Pierre Durand from the Evolution of Complexity Laboratory in the Evolutionary Studies Institute at Wits University, who led a project to find out how exactly these molecules linked up with each other. Their results are published today in the journal Royal Society Open Science, in a paper entitled "Molecular trade-offs in RNA ligases affected the modular emergence of complex ribozymes at the origin of life"."

Moto X4 coming to Project Fi as part of the Android One program

When the Nexus 5X and 6P were discontinued, the only other options for Project Fi users were the Pixel and Pixel XL — two phones that carry a premium price. Many were hoping that a mid-range smartphone would eventually be released on Project Fi, which requires special software even though it is a prepaid service. Now, Google has officially announced that the recently released Moto X4 is coming to Project Fi as part of the Android One program.

As a recap, the Moto X4 has a 5.3-inch IPS display at a resolution of 1920x1080, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable), a 16MP front facing camera with flash, a dual rear camera setup (12MP f/2.0 Dual Autofocus+8MP f/2.2 120-degree wide-angle), IP68 dust and water resistant, NFC, a fingerprint scanner on the front, a USB Type-C port, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 7.1 Nougat. Since this is an Android One branded smartphone, the Moto X4 will run a pure version of Android with no additional manufacturer software. Google also says that the Moto X4 on Project Fi will receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo by the end of the year, and it will be "be among the first to receive an upgrade to Android P." 

As for pricing, the Moto X4 on Project Fi will cost $399. Google also says that they'll give you up to $165 if you trade in a select Nexus device, and if you trade in before October 5th, Google will give you an extra $50 of Project Fi credit.

Bitten by a slug

Common puffball (Lycoperdon perlatum)

Svartskog, Norway

Lots of spiky warts were no match for a slug that went all the way to the top and took a deep bite and then went off. You can see the shiny and dry slime in several places on the cap.

As a kid I had lots of fun with the mature puffballs and made lots of smoke bombs. At that stage they are way past edible, but during their early and all-white stage they are edible and by many considered a delicacy.

Hubble discovers unique double asteroid

"With the help of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, a German-led group of astronomers have observed the intriguing characteristics of an unusual type of object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter: two asteroids orbiting each other and exhibiting comet-like features, including a bright coma and a long tail. This is the first known binary asteroid also classified as a comet. The research is presented in a paper published in the journal Nature today."

"Daniel Rothman, professor of geophysics in the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences and co-director of MIT's Lorenz Center, has analyzed significant changes in the carbon cycle over the last 540 million years, including the five mass extinction events. He has identified "thresholds of catastrophe" in the carbon cycle that, if exceeded, would lead to an unstable environment, and ultimately, mass extinction.

In a paper published in Science Advances, he proposes that mass extinction occurs if one of two thresholds are crossed: For changes in the carbon cycle that occur over long timescales, extinctions will follow if those changes occur at rates faster than global ecosystems can adapt. For carbon perturbations that take place over shorter timescales, the pace of carbon-cycle changes will not matter; instead, the size or magnitude of the change will determine the likelihood of an extinction event."

In iOS 11, Apple added a new emergency feature to the iPhone, which is designed to allow you to quickly and discreetly place a call to emergency services. In the United States, SOS dials 911, and in other countries, it works with local emergency responders. When you press the sleep/wake button on the iPhone five times on a device running iOS 11, it brings up a slider menu that allows you to quickly slide a finger against the screen to place the emergency call. The extra step makes sure you don't accidentally place a 911 call, but if you want to disable it, there's an "Auto Call" feature you can toggle on to bypass the swipe. On the iPhone X, launching in November, Emergency SOS will be activated by pressing the side button and the volume up button simultaneously, rather than pressing the side button five times. When you use Emergency SOS on an iPhone, the feature also disables Touch ID, preventing a would-be thief or other person with malicious intent from accessing your device without entering your passcode. It also automatically alerts any emergency contacts you've set in the Health app, sending them an iMessage with your location. Enabling Auto Call SOS is automatically included on every iPhone running iOS 11 and there is no disabling it. Activate it by pressing on the sleep/wake button five times in rapid succession to bring up the swipe interface. If you want the feature to call emergency services automatically without the need for an extra gesture, here's how to toggle it on: * Open the Settings app. * Scroll down to "Emergency SOS." * Toggle on "Auto Call." * To turn it off, simply toggle off Auto Call. With Auto Call enabled, your phone will dial "911" (or your country's emergency line) after a three second countdown that gives you enough time to cancel the call if it's placed accidentally. SOS on the Apple Watch There's also an SOS feature on the Apple Watch, which was first introduced in watchOS 3. On the Apple Watch, an emergency call can be placed when you press and hold down on the side button for several seconds in a row. When you set up your Apple Watch, Apple prompts you to turn it on, but if you didn't, you can still choose to do so later. On the Apple Watch, it's a lot easier to accidentally make an emergency call if something presses against the side button, so many people may not want this feature on. Here's how to turn it on: * Open the Apple Watch app on the iPhone. * Scroll down to General and tap it. * Look for Emergency SOS. It's the sixth option. * Tap to the Emergency SOS interface. * Toggle on "Hold to Auto Call." * To turn it off again, toggle off Hold to Auto Call. Setting Emergency Contacts As mentioned above, whenever you use the SOS feature, Apple will automatically notify your emergency contacts if you have them set. Emergency contacts can be set up in the Health app: * Open the Health app. * Choose Medical ID. * Select "Edit" in the top right corner. * Scroll down to the Emergency Contacts section. * Tap the "+" button to add an emergency contact. You can add multiple emergency contacts, each of which will receive a text message with your location if you ever use the Emergency SOS feature. Discuss this article in our forums
