Register Now » Blackstone TL1600 2013 - TopTenREVIEWS It is easy to get caught up in the cinema moment with a home theater speaker system like the Blackstone TL1600 from Polk Audio. This 5.1 package includes four small satellite speakers, a center-channel speaker and a subwoofer that work together to create immersive surround sound. Polk Audio really delivers by putting an emphasis on design and craftsmanship. Bass fanatics may feel somewhat underwhelmed by the frequency range of 40-22,000Hz, but the subwoofer redeems itself with an exceptionally well-blended sound.

No link between prenatal mercury exposure and autism-like behaviors found The potential impact of exposure to low levels of mercury on the developing brain -- specifically by women consuming fish during pregnancy -- has long been the source of concern and some have argued that the chemical may be responsible for behavioral disorders such as autism. However, a new study that draws upon more than 30 years of research in the Republic of Seychelles reports that there is no association between pre-natal mercury exposure and autism-like behaviors. "This study shows no evidence of a correlation between low level mercury exposure and autism spectrum-like behaviors among children whose mothers ate, on average, up to 12 meals of fish each week during pregnancy," said Edwin van Wijngaarden, Ph.D., an associate professor in the University of Rochester Medical Center's (URMC) Department of Public Health Sciences and lead author of the study which appears online today in the journal Epidemiology.

Representing Israel, Bar Shira (who is a bartender, not a bar; "bar" in Hebrew translates as "son," or "grain") brought it with El Camello Loco.
