You love waffles. Waking up to a batch of crisp, warm waffles in the morning is the start of your ideal Sunday morning! That’s why you bought the waffle iron, after all.

Blindsight is the ability of people who are cortically blind due to lesions in their striate cortex , also known as primary visual cortex or V1, to respond to visual stimuli that they do not consciously see. [ 1 ] The majority of studies on blindsight are conducted on patients who are blind on only one side of their visual field.
I was incredibly lucky that my Mom owned a beautiful second-hand book store throughout my adolescence, because I constantly got to reap the reward of having amazing literature at my finger tips. Whatever I wanted to read, I was lucky enough to get to read. And as a result of the store taking second-hand books, can you even grasp how many amazing books must I got to read, that I never would have known about otherwise?
To make moral judgments about other people, we often need to infer their intentions — an ability known as “theory of mind.” For example, if one hunter shoots another while on a hunting trip, we need to know what the shooter was thinking: Was he secretly jealous, or did he mistake his fellow hunter for an animal? MIT neuroscientists have now shown they can influence those judgments by interfering with activity in a specific brain region — a finding that helps reveal how the brain constructs morality. Previous studies have shown that a brain region known as the right temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) is highly active when we think about other people’s intentions, thoughts and beliefs. In the new study, the researchers disrupted activity in the right TPJ by inducing a current in the brain using a magnetic field applied to the scalp.

Seeing as how the entirety of organic history exists thanks to communication — even rudimentary chemical exchanges between cells qualify — it makes perfect sense that many find the concept utterly engaging. Language pervades everything, building and destroying as time marches ever forward. And while even the most learned scholars can't even begin to fully explain its physiology, origins, structures and pretty much every other component, they've certainly done a pretty lovely job scratching the surface.
A few years ago, spurred by an economic malaise, many professionally trained chefs began taking to the streets -- in trucks. Once known by the unsavory moniker “roach coaches,” food trucks have since experienced a renaissance. Plugged into social media such as Twitter and Facebook, sourcing local ingredients and sporting graphic eye-catching designs, food trucks have transformed the American food scene in a few short years. Historically, food trucks provided meals to folk who didn’t have ready access to food, whether as a canteen for soldiers or a lunch truck for construction workers. “Nobody wanted to eat off of them because they were not good food,” says Tony Chen, the blogger of SinoSoul based in Los Angeles.
