NASA's EPIC View of 2017 Eclipse Across America
From a million miles out in space, NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) captured 12 natural color images of the moon’s shadow crossing over North America on Aug. 21, 2017. EPIC is aboard NOAA’s Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR), where it photographs the full sunlit side of Earth every day, giving it a unique view of total solar eclipses.
EPIC normally takes about 20 to 22 images of Earth per day, so this animation appears to speed up the progression of the eclipse.

Lamborghini’s luxury Android phone is definitely not worth $2,450

Yeah, there's no way it's actually worth that much. There are a few logical reasons that can explain why the phone is at a disadvantage to other cheaper devices. Lamborghini is a car company, not a software company -- their software endeavors will likely be disappointing. The hardware and software will find itself outdated in a year or two maximum... and it will miss out on exciting new features along the way. It's a status symbol at best, and a paperweight afterwards.

The Pixel 2 is probably getting smart Google headphones

Google-made smart headphones for the Pixel 2? Cool. The comments in the code of the Google App 7.10 are quite convincing and definitely lead myself and others to believe that "Bisto" is in fact Google earbuds or headphones that will be smart and fully interact with the Google Assistant. It's a logical step for Google as they remove the headphone jack in their upcoming Pixel 2 smartphone.

At Phoenix rally, Trump blames media for reaction to Charlottesville comments

President Donald Trump blamed the media Tuesday for the widespread condemnation of his response to a Charlottesville, Virginia, protest organized by white supremacists that led to the killing of a counter-protester.

Warm summer
One of the warmest days this summer in Galicia. Even now with the sun almost gone and with a good wind the "hot" is still there in the air. BTW, take a look at this paradisiac place where the river Anllóns meet the Atlantic ocean!

Hidden jewel

Stone bramble (Rubus saxatilis)

Svartskog, Norway

This intensely colored fruit should be easy to see on the forest floor but is quite hard to find as it is mostly hidden under the leaves of the plant. Furthermore each plant holds very few fruits, and some just one drupe as seen here. A fully formed fruit would hold many drupes and resemble a cloudberry, but this species has way of producing very irregular number of drupes and for me this one was like a ruby in the forest. Just one precious fruit carrying the true gem inside it.

With blueberries and lingonberries/cowberries each plant carries so many fruits you can see them from afar, but this species has a different way of life and I had to look very carefully to find this amazing specimen.

When you sit by these fruits and wait for the rays of sunlight to filter through to the fruit, they almost glow and become semi-transparent, and you can see the shape of the seeds inside.

The Crown of the Sun
During a total solar eclipse, the Sun's extensive outer atmosphere, or corona, is an inspirational sight. Streamers and shimmering features visible to the eye span a brightness range of over 10,000 to 1, making them notoriously difficult to capture in a single photograph. But this composite of telescopic images covers a wide range of exposure times to reveal the crown of the Sun in all its glory. The aligned and stacked digital frames were taken in clear skies above Stanley, Idaho in the Sawtooth Mountains during the Sun's total eclipse on August 21. A pinkish solar prominence extends just beyond the right edge of the solar disk. Even small details on the dark night side of the New Moon can be made out, illuminated by sunlight reflected from a Full Earth.

Imaging the Brain in the Era of Modern Neuroscience

The brain is as beautiful as it is complex. Throughout the centuries scientists have attempted to glean understanding from the brain based on its anatomy. Since Santiago Ramón y Cajal’s detailed drawings at the turn of the 20th Century, neuroscientists of the modern era have been zooming in on the brain to unlock its secrets. Recent improvements in imaging technologies, greater access to microscopes and specialist software have culminated in the cutting-edge imaging currently being performed on brains and brain tissue across the world.

1. Recreating the retina: drawing it by hand

The neuroanatomist and father of modern neuroscience, Santiago Ramón y Cajal looked at brain tissue stained using the Golgi Stain method under his microscope. He then drew what he saw, producing beautiful reconstructions of neurons such as the line drawing of the retina above.

2. Recreating the retina: from electron micrographs

Nowadays, whole sections of the retina have been reconstructed in unprecedented three-dimensional detail. In 2013 Helmstaedter et al. published their paper on the connectomic reconstruction of the inner plexiform layer in the mouse retina. The group used a lot of manpower to manually reconstruct the neurons in a small section of the mouse retina by tracing projections through electron micrograph sections.

3. Antibody-labelling lights up the brain

By using primary antibodies to target a protein of interest, neuroscientists can then use a fluorescent secondary antibody against the primary to increase the fluorescence signal, producing pretty yet insightful images. Such as the following...

4. Speeding up labeling

Antibody labeling and imaging in Drosophila melanogaster brains can take up to a week. In this image, genetically encoded chemical tags have been expressed in neurons of interest. It takes just 15 minutes to stain for these tags with their substrates. Credit: Ben Sutcliffe, Jefferis lab. MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.

5. Deeper insights into the brain

Multiphoton imaging systems, such as Leica's SP8 multiphoton confocal system (used to capture the video above), use longer and less-damaging wavelength beams of light to excite fluorescent proteins deeper in tissue, enabling neuroscientists to see complete structures in intact tissue.

6. CLARITY: See through brains

Despite improvements in imaging systems, such as multiphoton laser scanning microscopes, the brain tissue itself hinders imaging, by causing light to scatter. In 2013, Chung et al. published their seminal paper on their hydrogel method, CLARITY, which makes brain tissue transparent, reducing the scattering of light, affording structural and molecular interrogation of the whole intact brain.

7. Live imaging in the brain

8. Imaging Activity With Genetically Encoded Calcium Indicators

This video from the Sur lab shows In vivo imaging of visual cortex neurons expressing the genetically encoded calcium indicator GCamp6 responding to a moving grating (top right corner).

9. A Look Inside the Head With Magnetic Resonance Imaging

This video from the Human Connectome Project explains how Principal Diffusion Direction uses colors to map out the different directions that water molecules diffuse through the brain's white matter. This data is then used to reconstruct 3D representations of the white matter tracts in the brain.

After my successful introduction to #mediation, the next experience I'm interested in is #fasting. My goal at this point is just the experience. Fasting for a well like in the TEDTALK below could be medically dangerous without experience, so first I'd like to try fasting for a day, just to see what happens. Planning to end the fast at breakfast the next day so I can enjoy my favourite meal of the day as soon as it ends.
