Rats Get Placebo Effect Rats Get Placebo Effect Rodents experience placebo-induced pain relief, providing a new model with which to investigate the phenomenon. Wikimedia, AlexK100Like humans, rats can get pain relief from a placebo, according to a study published in the October issue of the journal PAIN. The findings give scientists a useful animal model with which to further investigate the mechanisms behind placebo-induced analgesia. Researchers from the University of Florida (UF) conditioned rats to expect morphine or saltwater by injecting them with one or the other during 2 sessions in which the rats were subjected to mild thermal pain on their faces. “We know basic things about placebo response, but the study we did is important because now we can look at placebo response in ways that you can’t in humans due to practical and ethical issues,” John Neubert, a pain specialist at the UF College of Dentistry and lead author of the study, said in a press release.

Last year Claudio Bertonatti, one of the most renowned naturalists in Argentina, wrote an article that triggered an earthquake. The tsunami reached us here and is likely to extend even further. In his article, The Vegan Confusion, he warns that eating vegetables doesn’t prevent the death of animals. We spoke to Claudio about his earth-shattering idea and discussed the most important points of the controversy. Claudio, you were a vegetarian. As a teenager, I grew interested in nature. What happened? I began studying nature and going out to the countryside to observe wildlife. How? As a vegetarian, I was helping to prevent the death and suffering of domestic animals, but not of wild species. What drove you to write the article? In Argentina, I encounter many people who claim to be defenders of nature because they don’t eat meat or wear leather. Why? From the moment that humans began to raise cattle and adopt agriculture we generated an impact. Indirect deaths? Wheat, rice, corn. In what sense? “Vegans and vegetarians think they don’t kill animals but they do” – PlayGround+ “Vegans and vegetarians think they don’t kill animals but they do” – PlayGround+

Endlich geschafft! Seit mehr als zwei Jahren geistert die Idee in meinem Kopf herum, 360-Grad-Videos zu machen. Ich habe getüffelt, ausprobiert und geflucht – jetzt funktioniert es tatsächlich. Doch der Reihe nach: Kleine Planeten Ihr kennt doch diese kleinen Planten, die man aus Panorama-Bildern basteln kann? Viel hilft viel: 360°-Videos mit 6 GoPro-Kameras Um diesen kleinen Planten allerdings Leben einzuhauchen und sie als Bewegtbild umzusetzen, habe ich in den letzten Jahren viele komische Dinge probiert: Ich habe meine Kameras auf Drehteller geschraubt und Nächte lang versucht, tausende Bilder zusammenzufügen. angeguckt und frustriert festgestellt, dass das absoluter Quatsch ist. Eine Halterung aus dem 3D-Drucker Zum Glück gibt es GoPro Kameras , die mit ihrem Fisheye-Objektiv einen anständigen Blickwinkel abdecken. Jetzt heißt es diesen Kamera-Ball zu nutzen. Ich suche Mitfahrgelegenheiten! 360-Grad-Video mit 6 GoPro-Kameras - Jonas Ginter 360-Grad-Video mit 6 GoPro-Kameras - Jonas Ginter

[NSFW] Guro: The Erotic Horror Art of Japanese Rebellion Toshio Saeki, Yarai, 1972 In the deranged world of ero guro nansensu, the stranger and grosser an illustration, the more prized it is. Common tropes of the 1930s-born Japanese artistic and literary movement include erotic asphyxiation (based on a real-life case at the time), a samurai slicing up a bondaged girl, snakes with human heads, or a contortionist sucking out the eyes of a young boy, rendered in traditional woodblock printing technique. Suehiro Maruo interpretation of the erotic asphyxiation theme Takato Yamamoto Toshio Saeki, Renrui, 1972 Not to be confused with pornography or horror, pure ero guro nansensu is distinctive in that it focuses on dark erotic fantasies paired with really disgusting things.The name is taken from the English words "erotic grotesque nonsense," and so blood and violent gore does not always necessarily feature in—a girl with ten eyeballs stuck in her genitals could be just as valid and incongruous.

Barred Owls live alone, except when mating or raising young. Barred Owls get ready to mate in late Winter. They begin by calling and responding. When a male and female approach each other, they will both do a sort of courtship "dance." They will nod, bow, and spread their wings, as well as shake their heads. Barred Owls nest in tree cavities or in old crow, hawk, or squirrel nests. These birds lay two to four eggs, and the female will sit on them for about a month, while the male hunts. Young owls are ready to fly in about six weeks, but sometimes they don't leave their parents for six months! Barred Owls have few predators. Barred Owls are also known for the wide range of sounds they make. Barred Owl
