The FB headlines for this page. Uh, WHY do "we need this"?
Don't get me wrong: being able to detect radiation (which is all around us as it is already...so I assume they mean radioactive materials instead of radiation) is handy...but what's with the headline?

Suggest they try this across the Pacific to see how far Fukushima radiation has spread

The article didn't mention how the population of senior citizens has grown, coupled with advances in medical science causing people to live longer. I think it may play a part in the increased instances.

Hmm, a relative of mine was committed to a nursing home based on swift home visit by a geriatrician who diagnosed Alzheimer's; almost no further mental decline was then apparent but the physical and emotional suffering of being confined to a nursing home by her children led to constant infection, physical decline and death. I wonder how many of these diagnoses of Alzheimer's are accurate?

Think a combination of longer lives, better healthcare and a lot more awareness of what Alzheimer's and dementia actually is probably play a part in this percentage...my father passed away through complications caused by dementia and I can tell you - not enough is being done to combat this awful plague...I am grateful every time I see an article or a study trying to raise awareness and finding treatments....

It would really suck to have something like dyslexia and try to do organic chemistry. Get a letter wrong and you've got a whole new molecule.

woa pretty cool.. it's much better if you can also inject data to the brain, that will be much easier method to learn, and will save some couple years of study, that's absolutely will change the world for better or worse, but sure it will speed up development of science.. :3

We've Been Underestimating How Many Black Hole Collisions Are Terrorising The Universe

If it takes an infinite amount of time for anything to cross the event horizon of a black hole as perceived from the outside, how have any two black holes "collided" or "merged" in the history of the universe, from our perspective?
yesterday at 01:36
It is increasingly clear we know far less about the universe than what we think we do, except climate change, we are 100% certain on it.

Can we please stop anthropomorphizing natural forces into terrorists. This kind of sensationalism might get you a few percentage points more clicks, but it's unbecoming and plebian.

Hunting for where consciousness forms.
A Giant Neuron Has Been Found Wrapped Around The Entire Circumference of The Brain

Everything has rudimentary consciousness. Even inanimate matter. It only differs and changes gradually as the matter or energy changes. So for example the matter in the brain is conscious as a person because the material in the brain is configured as a human brain. Other living things have their own particular types of conscious experiences. Non-living things have experiences that do not involve sense or memory.
05/27/2017 at 21:28
Consciousness is emergent from multiple sections of the brain acting as one.
05/27/2017 at 22:09
Is a radio conscious or is it tuning into the source?
The brain could be the antennae running into the conscious universe.

The brain is powerful, especially if you feed it properly with nutrition, willing to be reflective and challenge yourself. 25 years of repression, in 5 months and I've got further than I ever imagine. Everyone say it says takes years of theraphy and drugs. Haven't touch anything, challenging my brain each day. Of course there is struggling at times, being proactive seeing these improvements make it all worthwhile. Then refueling it with Exercise and nutrition. ☺

Vaccines are risky, they just happen to be less risky than the diseases they protect against. They do not cause autism but they can cause severe allergic reactions(some of which are neurological) in a small subset of the human population. I know because I'm allergic to the tetanus vaccine.

There is some evidence recently to support apples and perhaps sudden temperature changes. The US sugar industry has poisoned a nation though. Vaccines, yes there are some people and it usually shows up in other intolerances. Hence the importance of vaccination for all those who can. I come from when these disease frightened whole nations of parents. You DO NOT want measles. I had it.
