If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. You need to share within 5 days of when the circle was published, as I publish my #DpXpc #ZilleJulle  #Circles weekly, and they take me a day or so to curate. Otherwise it may be two weeks before I pick up your share and you get added to the circle again. This is especially true for my #DpXpc #ZilleJulle  #Circles . Therefore, for the best results if the circle is more than a week old, you should share my latest #DpXpc #ZilleJulle  #Circles, which you can find on my profile page at: https://2014-10-03 00:40:48500000

This Incredible Oculus Sim Lets Soccer Players Relive Games

Engineers from Alkmaar-based Triple IT have created an Oculus Rift application that takes data from in-stadium cameras and other tracking systems and creates a VR replay of a soccer match. When players from AFC Ajax put on an Oculus Rift headset, they see a recreation of the Amsterdam Arena, with details down to the video board hanging high at one end of the field.

Using simple controls, the wearer can fast-forward to specific points of the game and replay them from his own perspective. Even more mind-blowingly, a player can switch to the perspective of a teammate and see what he saw at any given moment. No more “I was wide open, why didn’t you pass to me?” moments. Just put on the headset and you’re in the shoes of the passer, seeing the game through his eyes.

Receiving gossip about others promotes self-reflection and growth

Gossip provides individuals with indirect social comparison information, which is in-turn valued highly by receivers because it provides an essential resource for self-evaluation. Instead of eliminating gossip, Elena Martinescu and her colleagues suggest that individuals should "accept gossip as a natural part of our lives and receive it with a critical attitude regarding the consequences it may have on ourselves and on others." Receiving gossip about other people is a valuable source of knowledge about ourselves, because we implicitly compare ourselves with the people we hear gossip about.

Ketamine restores pleasure-seeking ahead of other antidepressant action

A drug being studied as a fast-acting mood-lifter restored pleasure-seeking behavior independent of—and ahead of—its other antidepressant effects, in a National Institutes of Health trial. Within 40 minutes after a single infusion of ketamine, treatment-resistant depressed bipolar disorder patients experienced a reversal of a key symptom—loss of interest in pleasurable activities—which lasted up to 14 days. Brain scans traced the agent's action to boosted activity in areas at the front and deep in the right hemisphere of the brain.

What monkeys can teach us about pitching in the World Series

A team led by UCSF's Philip Sabes studied the fastballs thrown by two-time Cy Young Award-winner Clayton Kershaw to show that even the most highly practiced expert movements are actually being continually relearned on a trial-by-trial basis.

Shortly after I started business school last fall, I met Brian Armstrong and Fred Ehrsam, the co-founders of Coinbase. After convincing them I could contribute to the company, I began doing some remote work for them from New Haven. A few projects quickly turned into 40+ hours a week of work. Suddenly, I was spending all of my time working on bitcoin — specifically educating merchants about the benefits of bitcoin and thinking strategically about partnerships and new behaviors that bitcoin enables. When I initially spoke to classmates and professors about what I was doing, most dismissed it. But as the year went on, mainstream news coverage and investors like Marc Andreessen legitimized the technology in the minds of many professors and students.

Dead Heart Transplanted into Patients in Huge Medical Breakthrough

"The donor heart wasn’t beating for up to 20 minutes before it was resuscitated and successfully transplanted," the Institute said in a statement. "This represents a paradigm shift in organ donation and will result in a major increase in the pool of hearts available for transplantation."

Omega 3 can help children with ADD, experts say

In this study, 75 children and adolescents with ADHD were given either the fatty acids omega 3 and 6 or a placebo over three months, and then they were all given omega 3/6 over three months. The study was conducted double-blind, which means that neither the researchers nor the participants were allowed to know whether they received the active capsules until afterwards.

"For the group as a whole, we did not see any major improvement, but in 35 percent of the children and adolescents who have the inattentive subtype of ADHD called ADD, the symptoms improved so much that we can talk about a clinically relevant improvement," says Mats Johnson, doctoral student at the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg.

Bitcoin pegged sidechains whitepaper reveals new horizons for cryptocurrency

We propose a new technology, pegged sidechains, which enables bitcoins and other ledger assets to be transferred between multiple blockchains. This gives users access to new and innovative cryptocurrency systems using the assets they already own. By reusing Bitcoin’s currency, these systems can more easily interoperate with each other and with Bitcoin, avoiding the liquidity shortages and market fluctuations associated with new currencies. Since sidechains are separate systems, technical and economic innovation is not hindered. Despite bidirectional transferability between Bitcoin and pegged sidechains, they are isolated: in the case of a cryptographic break (or malicious design) in a sidechain, the damage is entirely confined to the sidechain itself.

Cancer exosome 'micro factories' aid in cancer progression

Exosomes, tiny, virus-sized particles released by cancer cells, can bioengineer micro-RNA (miRNA) molecules resulting in tumor growth. They do so with the help of proteins, such as one named Dicer. New research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center suggests Dicer may also serve as a biomarker for breast cancer and possibly open up new avenues for diagnosis and treatment.

This Incredible Oculus Sim Lets Soccer Players Relive Games

Engineers from Alkmaar-based Triple IT have created an Oculus Rift application that takes data from in-stadium cameras and other tracking systems and creates a VR replay of a soccer match. When players from AFC Ajax put on an Oculus Rift headset, they see a recreation of the Amsterdam Arena, with details down to the video board hanging high at one end of the field.

Using simple controls, the wearer can fast-forward to specific points of the game and replay them from his own perspective. Even more mind-blowingly, a player can switch to the perspective of a teammate and see what he saw at any given moment. No more “I was wide open, why didn’t you pass to me?” moments. Just put on the headset and you’re in the shoes of the passer, seeing the game through his eyes.

Dispositional mindfulness associated with better cardiovascular health

Pay attention to the implication of these new research results: People who pay more attention to their feelings and experiences tend to have better cardiovascular health.

As noted more precisely in a new study in the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine, researchers at Brown University found a significant association between self-reported "dispositional mindfulness" and better scores on four of seven cardiovascular health indicators, as well as a composite overall health score. Dispositional mindfulness is defined as someone's awareness and attention to what they are thinking and feeling in the moment.

Fast modeling of cancer mutations

A new genome-editing technique enables rapid analysis of genes mutated in tumors, researchers report. Sequencing the genomes of tumor cells has revealed thousands of genetic mutations linked with cancer. However, sifting through this deluge of information to figure out which of these mutations actually drive cancer growth has proven to be a tedious, time-consuming process -- until now.

This system could be used in combination with hundreds of existing mouse strains that have been engineered to express known cancer genes, allowing researchers to study more thoroughly the interactions of multiple genes. Jacks' lab is now investigating the roles of genes associated with other types of lung cancer, such as small cell lung cancer.

This method also offers new ways to seek personalized treatments for cancer patients depending on the types of mutations found in their tumors, the researchers say. They envision using this technique to create mice with tumors carrying the same genetic profile as a patient, then testing different drugs on them to see which have the best effect.

"This opens up a whole new field of being able to do personalized oncology where you can model human mutations and start treating tumors based on these mutations," Papagiannakopoulos says.

Mathematical model shows how the brain remains stable during learning

The theory and experimental findings showed that fast Hebbian and slow homeostatic plasticity work together during learning, but only after each has independently assured stability on its own timescale. "The essential idea is that the fast and slow processes control separate biochemical factors," said Dr. Miller.

Scientists sequenced the genome of a man who lived 45,000 years ago

"Given that we know that the Ust’-Ishim individual is 45,000 years old, we can calculate how many mutations accumulate per site per year," Kelso says. And "we find between one and two mutations per year accumulated in the genomes of populations in Europe and Asia since the Ust’-Ishim man lived."

Mapping this man’s genome helped the researchers gain a better understanding of the relationship between ancient Ust-Ishim human populations and present-day humans. "We found that this Ust’-Ishim individual is equally closely related to present-day Asians and to early Europeans," Kelso says. This means that the population to which this man belonged probably diverged from Europeans and Asians around the same time, or slightly before, these two groups diverged from one another.

Extremely high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging

For the first time, researchers have succeeded to detect a single hydrogen atom using magnetic resonance imaging, which signifies a huge increase in the technology's spatial resolution. In the future, single-atom MRI could be used to shed new light on protein structures.

Together with colleagues at the University of Leipzig, researchers of ETH Zurich are working on massively increasing the resolution of the technique, with the goal of eventually imaging at the level of single molecules -- demanding an over one million times finer resolution.

Mental rest and reflection boost learning

A new study, which may have implications for approaches to education, finds that brain mechanisms engaged when people allow their minds to rest and reflect on things they've learned before may boost later learning.

Scientists have already established that resting the mind, as in daydreaming, helps strengthen memories of events and retention of information. In a new twist, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have shown that the right kind of mental rest, which strengthens and consolidates memories from recent learning tasks, helps boost future learning.

Signing the document were 69 scholars, including six from Stanford and cognitive psychologists and neuroscientists from around the world.

"It is customary for advertising to highlight the benefits and overstate potential advantages of their products," she said. "But in the case of brain games, companies also assert that the products are based on solid scientific evidence developed by cognitive scientists and neuroscientists. So we felt compelled to issue a statement directly to the public."

Google leads $542 million funding of mysterious augmented reality firm Magic Leap

Google is leading a huge $542 million round of funding for the secretive startup Magic Leap, which is said to be working on augmented reality glasses that can create digital objects that appear to exist in the world around you. Though little is known about what Magic Leap is working on, Google is placing a big bet on it: in addition to the funding, Android and Chrome leader Sundar Pichai will join Magic Leap's board, as will Google's corporate development vice-president Don Harrison. The funding is also coming directly from Google itself — not from an investment arm like Google Ventures — all suggesting this is a strategic move to align the two companies and eventually partner when the tech is more mature down the road.

New research shows fish intake associated with boost to antidepressant response

They found that the MDD patients who didn't respond to the SSRI also tended to have abnormal fatty acid metabolism, so they checked the dietary habits of all those taking part in the trial. Fatty fish is rich in fatty acids, such as the well-known Omega-3 DHA. So the researchers looked at the amount of fatty fish in the diet of all involved in the trial. They categorised the patients into 4 groups, according to their fatty fish intake, and they found that those who took the least fish tended to respond badly to anti-depressants, whereas those who had most fish in the diet responded best to anti-depressants. Those who ate fatty fish at least once a week had a 75% chance of responding to antidepressants, whereas those who never ate fatty fish had only a 23% chance of responding to antidepressants.

They found that the MDD patients who didn't respond to the SSRI also tended to have abnormal fatty acid metabolism, so they checked the dietary habits of all those taking part in the trial. Fatty fish is rich in fatty acids, such as the well-known Omega-3 DHA. So the researchers looked at the amount of fatty fish in the diet of all involved in the trial. They categorised the patients into 4 groups, according to their fatty fish intake, and they found that those who took the least fish tended to respond badly to anti-depressants, whereas those who had most fish in the diet responded best to anti-depressants. Those who ate fatty fish at least once a week had a 75% chance of responding to antidepressants, whereas those who never ate fatty fish had only a 23% chance of responding to antidepressants.

Aquaponics – the Automated Ubergarden of the Future

Their modern methods, combined with the ancient techniques, got rid of most of the work associated with traditional growing (eg. weeding, watering, mulching, soil building, etc…), allowing for much higher production output at a much higher quality.

Brain activity provides evidence for internal 'calorie counter'

As you glance over a menu or peruse the shelves in a supermarket, you may be thinking about how each food will taste and whether it's nutritious, or you may be trying to decide what you're in the mood for. A new neuroimaging study suggests that while you're thinking all these things, an internal calorie counter of sorts is also evaluating each food based on its caloric density.

Could reading glasses soon be a thing of the past?

A thin ring inserted into the eye could soon offer a reading glasses-free remedy for presbyopia, the blurriness in near vision experienced by many people over the age of 40, according to a study released today at AAO 2014, the 118th annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. A corneal inlay device currently undergoing clinical review in the United States improved near vision well enough for 80 percent of the participating patients to read a newspaper without disturbing far distance vision needed for daily activities like driving.

Researchers find why depression and aging linked to increased disease risk

Psychological stress and stress-related psychiatric disorders are associated with increased risk for aging-related diseases, but the molecular mechanisms underlying this relation are unknown. Understanding these mechanisms may contribute to the development of targeted preventive strategies and new or improved treatments for these devastating diseases.

Vegetables: Are they the new bacon?

“We don’t like to call it vegetarian. We want to call it tasty, fun, sexy, good-looking.”

René Redzepi, the avant-gardist in the kitchen at Copenhagen’s Noma restaurant, is waxing poetic about the virtues of a limp old carrot. Mario Batali is embracing Meatless Mondays, and Eataly, his chain of mammoth Italian marketplaces-slash-mess halls, is ushering diners into the seats of its own vegetable-driven restaurant, where the chalkboard menu describes not specials but “today’s harvest.” In Los Angeles, Kogi food-truck baron Roy Choi has just delivered Commissary, a “vegetable-focused” (but, again, not vegetarian) restaurant. Choi wrote on his Instagram feed that he was “trying to make vegetable[s] relevant to a new generation by just making them fun.” Taking its soil-to-small-plate aesthetic to its most literal end,Commissary has diners ... more »

How gut bacteria ensures a healthy brain – and could play a role in treating depression

the microbiome – the collection of bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract – plays a complex and critical role in the health of its host. The microbiome interacts with and influences organ systems throughout the body, including, as research is revealing, the brain. This discovery has led to a surge of interest in potential gut-based treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders and a new class of studies investigating how the gut and its microbiome affect both healthy and diseased brains.

No difference on how quickly people put back on weight if on either crash or slow weight loss diet.

And interestingly those on crash diets were more likely to stick to them.

Lose the pounds too fast, gain them all back? Crash diets are supposed to be a big no-no. According to received wisdom, losing weight too fast just makes you put it all back on again afterwards. But the first randomised trial to put this to the test has found that crash dieters are no more likely than those who shed weight slowly to regain it.

They were also better at sticking to their diet than those who followed a more gradual programme. "Programmes that induce very slow weight loss tend to have high attrition rates because people get fed up," says Nick Finer of University College Hospital, London, who wasn't involved in the work.

Brain scans show who's likely to trust strangers – something conmen can only dream about

An EEG records your brain activity by measuring the electrical pulses generated by the brain's cells through a series of electrodes placed on your scalp. In this study, the researchers found that they could predict the amount of money the initial player would trust to the stranger purely based on the activity recorded by the EEG.
