Fun with names. "A few years ago, the climate adaptation researcher Ben Smith—then a Ph.D. student at Kings College London—was working on his dissertation, about the effectiveness of water restoration projects in the United Kingdom. As with most scholarly projects, this involved spending hours and hours with the same information.

“I’d been staring at lists of rivers… [for] far too much time,” he says, when certain patterns of terminology began emerging. While the northern U.K. was squiggled all over with “burns,” the southeast was instead full of “nants” and “afons.”

“I got interested in the way [the words] varied between regions,” says Smith. So he decided to start mapping them. This year, inspired by a query from the landscape linguist Robert McFarlane, he returned to the project, and recently completed a set of maps of the U.K., twisted all over with different words for “stream.”"

"Pico Iyer, who’s featured in the film, wrote that our lives are like a big canvas, and we’re standing just an inch away from it. One thing silence does is it allows us to take that step back, to take it all in. It’s so hard to do that, but it helps us understand what we believe about the world, and what it is we want to contribute."

Help a gamer out if you can!

Fighting cancer is hard enough without all the crazy bills the insurance down there doesn't seem to cover.

Stacy could use some help with those. They've made gaming in general better and my gaming in particular is much better for Stacy's presence.

Love it or hate it - eating that broccoli on your plate may be a great thing for your gut health. Once broken down in the stomach, cruciferous vegetables -- such as broccoli, brussels sprouts and cabbage – may help in “maintaining a healthy balance in the gut flora and immune surveillance, and enhance host barrier function, according to the researchers. This may help prevent diseases, such as various cancers and Crohn's Disease, caused by inflammation in the lining of the gut.”

Neuroscientists build case for new theory of memory formation

Learning and memory are generally thought to be composed of three major steps: encoding events into the brain network, storing the encoded information, and later retrieving it for recall. Two years ago, MIT neuroscientists discovered that under certain types of retrograde amnesia, memories of a particular event could be stored in the brain even though they could not be retrieved through natural recall cues. This phenomenon suggests that existing models of memory formation need to be revised, as the researchers propose in a new paper in which they further detail how these "silent engrams" are formed and re-activated. The researchers believe their findings offer evidence that memory storage does not rely on the strengthening of connections, or "synapses," between memory cells, as has long been thought. Instead, a pattern of connections that form between these cells during the first few minutes after an event occurs are sufficient to store a memory. "One of our main conclusions in this study is that a specific memory is stored in a specific pattern of connectivity between engram cell ensembles that lie along an anatomical pathway. This conclusion is provocative because the dogma has been that a memory is instead stored by synaptic strength," says Susumu Tonegawa, the Picower Professor of Biology and Neuroscience, the director of the RIKEN-MIT Center for Neural Circuit Genetics at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, and the study's senior author.

A cosmic kaleidoscope

At first glance, this cosmic kaleidoscope of purple, blue and pink offers a strikingly beautiful — and serene — snapshot of the cosmos. However, this multi-coloured haze actually marks the site of two colliding galaxy clusters, forming a single object known as MACS J0416.1-2403 (or MACS J0416 for short).

MACS J0416 is located about 4.3 billion light-years from Earth, in the constellation of Eridanus. This new image of the cluster combines data from three different telescopes: the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope (showing the galaxies and stars), the NASA Chandra X-ray Observatory (diffuse emission in blue), and the NRAO Jansky Very Large Array (diffuse emission in pink). Each telescope shows a different element of the cluster, allowing astronomers to study MACS J0416 in detail.

As with all galaxy clusters, MACS J0416 contains a significant amount of dark matter, which leaves a detectable imprint in visible light by distorting the images of background galaxies. In this image, this dark matter appears to align well with the blue-hued hot gas, suggesting that the two clusters have not yet collided; if the clusters had already smashed into one another, the dark matter and gas would have separated. MACS J0416 also contains other features — such as a compact core of hot gas — that would likely have been disrupted had a collision already occurred.

Together with five other galaxy clusters, MACS J0416 is playing a leading role in the Hubble Frontier Fields programme, for which this data was obtained. Owing to its huge mass, the cluster is in fact bending the light of background objects, acting as a magnifying lens. Astronomers can use this phenomenon to find galaxies that existed only hundreds of million years after the big bang.

For more information on both Frontier Fields and the phenomenon of gravitational lensing, see Hubblecast 90: The final frontier.

Heh I was just in the mood to write and just to relax heh.. I hope you guys enjoy some cuteness +Riкυ
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thirteen year old Sora was fast asleep in his bed dreaming such an amazing dream his hand was still holding on his phone. Well was until a loud rumble of thunder woke him. At first he didn’t know what had woken him but he soon found out when lightning flashed outside his window with another crackle of thunder.

At the sudden flash of light the brunette hid beneath his blanket shying away from the storm. The blacket did little to block out the flash of lighting and the roar thunder. He was shaking like leaf he didn’t like thunderstorms at all. He was deathly afraid of them and not many knew that about him. He wanted to keep it like that. When he was younger it seemed to be a reasonable fear but now it was just embarrassing. He was thirteen and still scared of it but in his defense thunder was pretty loud and lighting was pretty creepy when it cast shadows into the darkness. He jumped again when another loud boom of thunder shook the house. How did Ven or Roxas sleep through this? Okay proudly Roxas was already with Leon hiding so he doesn’t count but what about Ven?

He was pundering on the idea to go over to Ven room and wake him. But part of him wonders if he would mind a rude wake up call over something stupid? He shook his head at the thought . He wasn’t going to bother Ventus at this hour with something as stupid as this. Another loud clap of thunder brought him out of his thoughts as he yelped in fear. Maybe it was irrational but Sora couldn’t take it anymore. He got up from his bed and went across the hall to Ven room.

He tip toed in he was lucky Ven always kept his door open a little to let some light in. He tiptop over to his bed. “Ventus.” Sora whispered the only response was being Ven light snoring.

“Ven! Ven Ven!” He said louder this time and then there was a pause in his snoring but still he slept on. Aqua wasn’t kidding on calling him the hopeless sleepyhead. Sora sighed deciding to just head back to his room and tough out the storm on his own. As walked back to his room there was a loud boom of thunder louder than all the rest causing Sora to jump and shout. “VENTUS!”

This seemed to jolt Ven out of his sleep.

“What? Bud what wrong?” He asked alarmed by his younger brother shouting.

“Th-the storm.. There was thunder..” was all he could say. Did he mentions that he terrified of thunderstorms? Ven rubbed his face with his hand yawning. “Sor dont scream like that! I thought something was seriously wrong!”

“I-I didn’t me-mean to..” Sora murmured so softly that it never reached Ven ears.

“Just do back to bed and let me be..” Ven was a grump when he was woken up. Though his younger brothers kinda took the cake of the most scariest when awoken. But at the moment he couldn’t be bother by his little brother brother all night long when he could be sleeping.

“O-okay..” Sora whispered crawling back into his bed wrapping himself up in the blacket. He tried his best to fall asleep and he almost succeeded in doing so until thunder crackled outside, causing him to whimper.

“Sora?” Ven came back into his room hearing the whimper that was coming from him. “Sor what wrong?”

“Nothing…” Sora called back he didn’t want to disrupt his brother sleep anymore than he already had.

“Are you sure?”

“I’m fine!” Sora lied his voice cracked he didn’t even noticed the tears slowly crawling down his cheeks until now.

“Come here bud..” Ven said but the tone he used left no room for Sora to argue not that he really wanted too. Sora unraveled himself from his blanket grabbing his beloved stitch as he ran across his room practically throwing himself at his brother.

“Sor what wrong?” Ven asked softly wrapping his arms around Sora who was now sitting in his lap. “T-Thunder i-is so loud.. And the l-lighting.. Is creepy..” He stuttered out and before Ven could even say anything. “I know that it’s stupid, but i really don’t like thunderstorms..”

“It not stupid Sor…Plenty of people don’t like thunder.”

“Yeah well how many thirteen years old do you know who are scared of thunder?” Sora asked looking up at his brother.

“I’m sure there are lots..” Though Ven didn’t sound so sure.

“Pfft yeah right.. “ Sora said bitterly though he made no move to leave his brother hug. “It’s not stupid Sor..” Ven said once again determined to get his light to feel better.

“Well-..” Sora never got to finish his sentence as loud crash of thunder cut him off and made him grab hold of Ven tighter shaking.

“V-ven..” He whimper a little as he tried his best to hide away from the thunder. “Shhh it’s okay.. “ Ven confronted him they stayed like that for a little while as Sora heard Ven softly humming safe and sound to him to calm him down.


“I’m sorry..” Sora pulled away from his older brother. “You’ve got nothing to be sorry for..” Ven said holding him tightly.

“Yes I do .. I woke you up in the middle of the night because of a stupid little thunderstorm..”

“Hey don’t worry Sor… it not your fault… fears are fears..”

“W-what are you scared of?” Sora yawned a little rubbing his eyes as he looked up at him. Instead of answering the question. “Someone tried..” Ven chuckled a little ruffling his younger brother hair.

“No I’m not.. “

“Yeah sure..” Ven said rolling his eyes lying down with Sora next to him. “Get some sleep..”

“Mmm.. you didn’t.. Answer my ..” Sora closed his eyes he was too tired to even finish it. As he snuggled up into Ven holding onto him tightly. Ven sighed a little looking at his younger brother how could he tell him his biggest fear is losing his little light?

How to Get Started with the Linux Operating System

What operating system do you use? For some, that question may as well be posed in Latin or Sanskrit. For others, it’s an invitation to have a heated debate about the benefits of GUI vs. command line, modern day UI vs. old school metaphor, the pros/cons of Windows 10, LAMP vs. IIS … the list goes on and on. For most, however, the answer will be a variation on Windows or Mac.

But anyone that has used Windows (in any of its incarnations) long enough knows, at some point, frustration will rule the day, and you’ll be working along and, seemingly out of nowhere, Windows will decide to apply updates and restart, putting your work at risk while you go through the lengthy process of applying updates and rebooting. Or what about the inevitable virus or malware? You spend precious dollars on antivirus software or, worst case scenario, you have to send the machine to your local PC repair to get the virus removed. All the while, work is not being done. While Apple’s macOS products suffer less from the vulnerabilities found in the Windows platform, they also come with a fairly hefty price tag.

There is, however, another alternative to both that doesn’t cost any money to download and install, and is far more immune to viruses and malware. That operating system is Linux. What is Linux?

Take a look at the article at http://bit.ly/2gYNMHi. It is not a how-to guide but more of an orientation for beginners about what it is and what are some of the terminologies you'll hear about when deciding what flavour to install.

a fact
i find heavier
than a floating moon
or
dying starlight
