Scientific papers concerning COVID-19 withdrawn after researchers identify flaws in dataIt’s highly unfortunate, considering the level of confusion that already exists concerning COVID-19, and the amount of misinformation, scams, and deliberate lies being fed into the system, but two major papers that each received significant publicity...
These animals build palaces out of their own snotEvery animal has its own idea of the perfect home. For the giant larvacean, that home is pretty darn weird—and new research shows that their slimy homes are even wackier than we thought. With their bulbous heads and flat tails, these gelatinous invertebrates look like big, ghostly tadpoles. Though they grow to reach the size of a breakfast muffin, they are usually surrounded by self-constructed “snot palaces” as big as 1 meter in length. Now, new insight published Wednesday in Nature shows new structural details hidden in all the goop.2

What Causes Autism Spectrum Disorder? - The EdvocateSpread the loveThere is no one known cause of Autism Spectrum Disorder, but research shows that it is likely due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Although there is nothing parents can do to prevent or predict autism in their children, there are a few factors that increase the risk. This article explores the genetic and environmental factors that can increase the possibility of autism, as well as other risk factors. Genetic factors Although there is no one known cause of autism, studies show that autism likely runs in families. There are certain genetic changes that may be […]
Psychedelic drug psilocybin tamps down brain's ego centerPsilocybin reduces activity in the claustrum, an area of the brain believed to contribute to consciousness and sense of self. Researchers say the reduced activity may tie in with the reduced sense of self and ego often associated with psychedelic drug use. The study also reports psilocybin alters the way the claustrum communicates with brain areas involved in attention, decision making, auditory processing, and memory.
The Chris Ramsay Playing Card PressThe Chris Ramsay Playing Card Press, by Clickspring. Hey Folks, you may be aware that I have been working on some research for the main Antikythera project over the last few months. So far so good on that front, although I may yet have to divert some more time back into it in the future, we'll see how it goes. For now I'm back on the video production, so please enjoy this collab with Chris Ramsay, and be sure to head on over to Chris's channel and say G'day -- https://youtu.be/ws99HWLzjlo Btw, I have a new 2nd channel called "Clickspring Clips" for you to check out too: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UjDtkpr2I-5G51vMJZvnA/. The purpose of this 2nd channel is that I figure there are a lot of people on Youtube who don't yet know that they love machining who probably skip right past a 20 minute video. So this new channel is all short clips, to see if I can rope in those potential viewers. Its mostly old content presented in a much shorter format, so if you've been watching for a while you will already have seen most of the material. But if you have the time and interest, head on over and give it a sub and maybe share a few of the clips. Cheers, Chris.
