The Game of Life , also known simply as Life , is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970. [ 1 ] The "game" is a zero-player game , meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves. [ edit ] Rules The universe of the Game of Life is an infinite two-dimensional orthogonal grid of square cells , each of which is in one of two possible states, alive or dead . Every cell interacts with its eight neighbours , which are the cells that are horizontally, vertically, or diagonally adjacent.
Polyphasic sleep , a term coined by early 20th-century psychologist J.S. Szymanski, [ 1 ] refers to the practice of sleeping multiple times in a 24-hour period—usually more than two, in contrast to biphasic sleep (twice per day) or monophasic sleep (once per day). It does not imply any particular sleep schedule. The circadian rhythm disorder known as irregular sleep-wake syndrome is an example of polyphasic sleep in humans. Polyphasic sleep is common in many animals, and is believed to be the ancestral sleep state. [ 2 ] The term polyphasic sleep is also used by an online community that experiments with alternative sleeping schedules to achieve more time awake each day. [ edit ] Multiphasic sleep of normal total duration

John Maynard Keynes Photograph courtesy the International Monetary Fund. Economics is at the start of a revolution that is traceable to an unexpected source: medical schools and their research facilities. Neuroscience—the science of how the brain, that physical organ inside one’s head, really works—is beginning to change the way we think about how people make decisions. These findings will inevitably change the way we think about how economies function. In short, we are at the dawn of “ neuroeconomics .”

We needed something compact and sturdy that could easily survive being dropped, put away, and handled. The concept is simple. The fastest way to prototype hardware is by using a solder-less breadboard to put together a circuit.
