Donald J. Trump lost the vote for president by well over two-and-a-half million votes and counting, and it's driving him out of his mind. We're in for at least four more long years of his thin-skinned pettiness and lies. It's going to get ugly.

By significantly increasing the speed of functional MRI (fMRI), researchers funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have been able to image rapidly fluctuating brain activity during human thought. fMRI measures changes in blood oxygenation, which were previously thought to be too slow to detect the subtle neuronal activity associated with higher order brain functions. The new discovery that fast fMRI can detect rapid brain oscillations is a significant step towards realizing a central goal of neuroscience research: mapping the brain networks responsible for human cognitive functions such as perception, attention, and awareness.

This jobs report is “somewhat mixed, not a dramatic departure from the pattern we’ve seen over the last several months,” Holzer said.

In other words, don’t fret. The economy will keep chugging along. After all, this is the 74th consecutive month of job growth.

Industrial pollution may seem like a modern phenomenon, but in fact, an international team of researchers may have discovered what could be the world's first polluted river, contaminated approximately 7,000 years ago.

In this now-dry riverbed in the Wadi Faynan region of southern Jordan, Professor Russell Adams, from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Waterloo, and his colleagues found evidence of early pollution caused by the combustion of copper. Neolithic humans here may have been in the early stages of developing metallurgy by learning how to smelt.

The research findings, published in Science of the Total Environment, shed light on a turning point in history, when humans began moving from making tools out of stones to making tools out of metal. This period, known as the Chalcolithic or Copper Age, is a transitional period between the late Neolithic or Stone Age... more »

Boston Dynamics' upright-and-walking-on-two-legs Atlas robot is a slightly terrifying while simultaneously an amazing piece of technology. But during its initial demos the DARPA-funded automaton needed a clear and fairly even path to walk. Now thanks to researchers at the Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition (IMHC), Atlas is ready to go almost everywhere. Just very very slowly.

A botnet that has served up phishing attacks and at least 17 different malware families to victims for much of this decade has been taken down in a coordinated effort by an international group of law enforcement agencies and security firms. Law enforcement officials seized command and control servers and took control of more than 800,000 Internet domains used by the botnet, dubbed "Avalanche," which has been in operation in some form since at least late 2009.

"The operation involves arrests and searches in five countries," representatives of the FBI and US Department of Justice said in a joint statement issued today. "More than 50 Avalanche servers worldwide were taken offline."

Shigeta Miura really hated Boy Scouts. Now 40 years old, the Tokyo resident was bullied by his fellow troop members. But Miura has had his revenge—for over a year, he's been sending anonymous boxes to his former tormenters, packed full of smelly, soggy retribution.

According to Japan Today, over the course of 14 months, Miura "sent more than 500 garbage items by mail." These included such classics as rotten tea leaves, dirt, and old underwear.

When Jean Dubuffet (1901-85) abandoned his family's wine business to take up art full-time in his 40s, he pledged that he would finally learn to draw. The champion of art brut had studied draughtsmanship years before at the fine arts academy in his native Le Havre, northern France. He sought fresh inspiration in the awkward drawings of children and the everyday, careless marks of a finger on fogged glass or a knifepoint on a lump of butter, as he wrote to his friend and fellow painter Gaston Chaissac. Dubuffet worked quickly and prodigiously, producing almost 3,000 works on paper by the time of his 1965 catalogue raisonn and destroying many more.

Around 100 of his drawings from 1935-62 are now on view at New Yorks Morgan Library in the first major museum exhibition dedicated to Dubuffets works on paper. The shows seven sections reveal the sophisticated techniques that lay behind the... more »

Around 100 of his drawings from 1935-62 are now on view at New Yorks Morgan Library in the first major museum exhibition dedicated to Dubuffets works on paper. The shows seven sections reveal the sophisticated techniques that lay behind the artists apparently untutored style. His experiments included caricatures scratched graffiti-like on boards, and textured assemblages composed of butterflies wings, sliced imprints of vegetation and even actual plants. The exhibition is sponsored by the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation and the Florence Gould Foundation.___

The Harvard Art Museums have received a $1 million gift from Harvard Business School alumnus Ken Hakuta (M.B.A. ’77) to establish the Hakuta Family Endowment Fund, enabling the creation of the Nam June Paik Fellowship at the Harvard Art Museums. Hakuta is the nephew of major mid-20th-century artist Nam June Paik, a pioneer in video art.

The two-year fellowship will expand knowledge about the artist, his work, and influences. The scholarship and research undertaken by Nam June Paik Fellows will examine Paik’s pivotal contributions to the ideas and language of visual expression and how they profoundly influenced generations of artists worldwide, including Joseph Beuys and the Fluxus group, with whom the artist engaged deeply and whose work is strongly represented in the Harvard Art Museums collections.

Tate Modern’s retrospective of artist’s work features pungent Mud Muse swamp, which curators promise will ‘bubble to perfection’

A primordial swamp with 1,000 gallons of bubbling, glooping, pungent mud has been installed at Tate Modern as part of a show celebrating one of the 20th century’s artistic trailblazers.

The gallery will open its Robert Rauschenberg retrospective to the public on Thursday [Dec 1], a winter blockbuster and the most comprehensive survey of the artist’s work for 20 years.

This exhibition reveals the raw violence at the heart of Twombly’s imagination. He is the most civilised and civilising of recent artists, a man who read endlessly and expects the same of his beholders. What? his paintings ask, you mean you’ve never read Catullus or CP Cavafy? What have you been doing with your life? Yet his belief in culture is anything but staid, and anything but confident. A tension between the civilised and the barbaric runs right through his art. It is the very essence of it. Both the savage and the scholarly – or as Lévi-Strauss might have put it, the raw and the cooked – are part of what makes Twombly a genius for our time.

Twombly’s rawness never left him. It keeps his art from turning into lyrical irrelevance. He is truly, and unforgivingly, our contemporary. After the assassination of John F Kennedy, several American artists, including Twombly’s great friend Rauschenberg, mourned him in their art. Yet Twombly’s commemoration was much less comfortable. In 1964, the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York showed his series Nine Discourses on Commodus, painted the previous year: it was critically reviled, these gory images of torn flesh in grey empty space ridiculed for their messy melodrama at a time when minimalism was the latest thing. Yet surely they were politically confusing, too. Was Twombly mourning Kennedy or celebrating the death of a tyrant? Commodus was the maddest of ancient Rome’s emperors, a compulsive killer who in the end had to be killed himself.

To understand these paintings you have to go the library. In Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, the reign of Commodus is the bloody red line line that divides the golden age of Rome from its long, unstoppable decline. Twombly’s paintings are not about Kennedy. They are about America crossing the line from its golden age into a bleaker historical epoch. This artist could always see the bigger picture.___

Peng first made General Tso's chicken in the 1950s, when he was working as a chef for the Taiwanese government, according to Taiwan Business Topics. When U.S. Navy Admiral Arthur W. Radford visited Taiwan in 1954 to lead a summit of high-ranking government officials, Peng decided to expand on the usual banquet menu. One of his innovations, a breaded and stir-fried chicken dish in a sweet and spicy sauce, was so popular that the chef was asked what it was called. On the spot, Peng coined "General Tso's Chicken," according to Taiwan Business Topics, after a celebrated war hero from Hunan, his home province.

Photographer Martin Usborne has always had a deep connection with animals, which shines through in his moving series titled The Silence of Dogs in Cars. There’s a dark, cinematic quality to his work that simultaneously captures the heartbreaking image of a dog hopelessly waiting for his human and offers a deeper look at their rich emotional spectrum of a beloved animal—one that mirrors the complex, sentimental range of human beings.

The series is inspired by an experience that Usborne had as a child. “I was once left in a car at a young age. I don’t know when or where or for how long, possibly at the age of four, perhaps outside a supermarket, probably for fifteen minutes only,” Usborne explains. “The details don’t matter. The point is that I wondered if anyone would come back. The fear I felt was strong: in a child’s mind it is possible to be alone forever. Aroundthe same age I ... more »

Around the same age I began to feel a deep affinity with animals—in particular their plight at the hands of humans.”

You never know what you’ll find when you buy something that’s vintage. When photographer Alex Galmeanu bought a rare 50-year-old camera off eBay, he never expected to find an exposed (but undeveloped) roll of film inside. “Of course I had it developed right away,” he wrote, “and, as a surprise again, I was able to recover 10 quite usable images, especially when considering their age.”

The photos depict a small rural wedding that took place sometime during the 1970s. They feature celebratory newlyweds and parents dressed in suits. It looks like a happy occasion with smiles all around. In addition to the people, there were also visible license plates on cars; this gave Galmeanu a place to start his sleuthing. He determined that one of the vehicles was first registered in Edinburgh, Scotland sometime between August 1973 and July 1974.

This trade sample book, created in the 1920s by Internationale Galalith Gesellschaft Hoff & Co., contains the product galalith, a synthetic plastic made of formaldehyde and casein, first developed in the late nineteenth century as part of an effort to create a new “dustless” chalkboard material.

The name galalith comes from the ancient Greek for “milk stone,” a reference to the fact that its major ingredient, casein, is a protein commonly found in milk (and a major component of cheese). While the modern Age of Plastics was ushered in by the development of industrial chemistry in the nineteenth century, producing many new kinds of synthetic materials—including other cheap plastics like Bakelite, celluloid, and Lucite alongside new pigments like aniline coal tar dyes—its basis is as old as civilization.

We’ve long been fans of LA-based photographer Darren Pearson who heads out at night to create site-specific light sculptures using long-exposure photography. He mostly uses a device of his own creation called a Night Writer to illustrate almost all of the creatures you see here, from rainbow-hued dinosaurs swimming across lakes to his popular skeletons that were incorporated into a music video.

For nearly six decades, culture has been tightly controlled by the government, both through patronage and censorship. And even though Castro’s death may not bring immediate liberties to artists in search of free expression, it does mark a tremendous psychological milestone.

“It’s really an important moment,” says independent curator Dan Cameron. The former Orange County Museum of Art chief curator has been traveling to Cuba for more than two decades and was in the country last year to conduct research for one of the Pacific Standard Time exhibitions to be held in Southern California next year.

The gun that the poet Paul Verlaine used to try to kill his lover, the poet Arthur Rimbaud, sold at Christies, Paris, on 30 November, for €434,000 with fees, more than six times its upper estimate of 70,000. The one-of-a-kind piece, arguably one of literary historys most famous weapons, was modestly priced and sparked a lengthy bidding war before selling to an anonymous buyer over the phone.

We don’t have to wait for a dystopian future in which our faces are scanned as we walk down the sidewalk and our every movement is logged – we willingly carry personally identifiable tracking devices in our pockets everywhere we go, and cameras are everywhere. What’s the average law-abiding citizen concerned with privacy to do, let alone activists and protesters seeking to exercise their constitutional rights? These wearable counter-surveillance designs, including drone-evading cloaks, signal-blocking phone cases and fingerprint spoofers aim to provide us with privacy-preserving tools in the age of Big Brother.

If the hundreds of cities that have signed on to the Compact of Mayors or other climate action commitments follow through on their promise to stem carbon emissions, their work will start with creating greenhouse gas budgets and specific plans. And that requires a solid foundation of environmental research, a job for which the emerging field of urban earth science might be up to the task.

This week, the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI) revealed its plans for the first Sustainable Urban Agrihood in the North End.

Wait, an agrihood? It’s an alternative neighborhood growth model, positioning agriculture as the centerpiece of a mixed-use development. There are some agrihoods around the country, but in rural areas. This is the first within a city.

MUFI’s agrihood spans three acres on Brush Street, a few blocks up from East Grand Boulevard. MUFI runs a successful two-acre garden, a 200-tree fruit orchard, and a children’s sensory garden. They provide free produce to the neighborhood, churches, food pantries, and more.
