The Ghost Shrimp | Image of the Week Image of the Week #53, July 30th, 2012: From: Hitchhiking jellyfish, gonad-loving parasites and the skeleton shrimp by Becky Crew at Running Ponies. Source: Alexander Semenov The alien creatures in movies like Prometheus still pale next to the dreamlike unpredictability of actual ocean-biodiversity. Caprella septentrionalis, seen here in a photo from the amazing biologist and photographer Alexander Semenov, looks impossible, menacing and whimsical all at once. ” …sometimes the subjects seemed to have been taken from the nightmarish dreams of science, and hark back to prehistoric times; monstrous flora bloomed on the rocks; everywhere…,” Huysmans, describing art by Symbolist Odilon Redon.

Human Brain Project La Commission européenne a officiellement désigné le Human Brain Project (HBP) comme l’un de ses deux projets FET Flagship. Le HBP regroupera les scientifiques de tout le continent autour de l’un des plus grands défis de la science contemporaine: comprendre le cerveau humain. Le Human Brain Project (HBP) a pour but de réunir toutes les connaissances actuelles sur le cerveau humain afin de le reconstituer, pièce par pièce, dans des modèles et des simulations informatiques. Fédérant plus de 80 Institutions de recherche Européennes et internationales, the Human Brain Project est prévu pour durer 10 ans (2013-2023). Une cartographie fonctionnelle de haute résolution du cerveau humain sera menée de concert avec celle des principaux faisceaux de fibres qui permettent à ces modules de communiquer. Sur le plan théorique, l’HBP créera un Institut Européen des Neurosciences Théoriques (EITN), qui sera localisé en Région Parisienne en raison de sa forte communauté théorique et mathématique.

Deep Green Cuts: Reading Tree Rings - Media Aside from the gentle rustling of leaves in the breeze or the creaking of a bough in a winter gale, a tree’s character may best be described as “the strong and silent type”—but, as so often is the case with such personalities, they have the most hauntingly beautiful stories to tell. For nearly a century, dendrochronologists have practiced reading tree rings for clues about the lives of trees. And though the field of study has helped shed light on historic growth cycles for scientists, it’s all been rather dry and clinical. But now, thanks to a special turntable designed to read tree rings as if they were tracks on an LP, a tree’s biography can be heard like its very own discography. German artist Bartholomäus Traubeck recently debuted a record player he developed that is capable of digitally reading tree slices and translating them into moving piano music.

Tutoring Business: Starting a Tutoring Business: Seven Important Lessons The Tutoring Business is pleased to present By Tony Aitken, President The Wealthy Tutor, Specializing in Tutoring Business Startup Sytems and Resources After working in the telecom industry for 15 years as a marketing consultant, I started looking around for new challenges. As consulting opportunities in the telecom industry were starting to dry up by 2000, I decided to look at different growth industries where I might get a new start. Although exact numbers are hard to come by, I would estimate the current tutoring industry in North America to be upwards of $10 billion annually and growing at a healthy pace. In September, 2003, I started a tutoring business by hiring university students on contract and sending them to people's homes to tutor their children in Math, Science & English. Seven Important Lessons I Have Learned Starting My Own Tutoring Business Do a Self-Assessment Ask yourself why you want to start a tutoring business.

Symatop Neurosciences & Outils RH How Does the Brain Perceive Art? | Wired Science  In 1995, the Metropolitan Museum of Art mounted a controversial exhibition entitled “Rembrandt/Not Rembrandt,” in which works considered to be genuine Rembrandts were displayed alongside those done by his students and admirers. (These lesser paintings are often dismissed as “the school of Rembrandt.”) The point of the exhibition was to reveal the fine line between genius and imitation, authenticity and fakery. A hundred years ago, about 700 works were attributed to Rembrandt. Over the course of the 20th century, that number declined by 50 percent, as critics and historians began searching for those tell-tale marks that distinguish the old master from his young pupils. What accounts for this staggering difference in value? The second possibility is that our aesthetic judgements are really complicated. To test these competing hypotheses, a team of researchers at Oxford University, including Mengfei Huang, Holly Bridge, Martin Kemp and Andrew Parker, set up a simple experiment.

Spirale de la réussite Study finds that spoilers aren't such a big deal As any citizen of the Internet knows, people tend to lose their minds at the slightest hint of a “spoiler,” the definition of which seems to vary wildly between extremes, from stuff like knowing the ending of a movie ahead of time to merely knowing that the movie will end, GODDAMN IT, WHERE WAS THE SPOILER ALERT THAT THE MOVIE WOULD END? I HOPE YOU GOT FIRED FOR THAT. Anyway, much of this reaction is based on a hypothesis that knowing beforehand what will happen in a story will negatively affect, or “spoil” your enjoyment of it. Psychologists there recently ran an experiment in which a group of 30 people were given 12 separate short stories they’d never read before, by the likes of Raymond Carver, Agatha Christie, Anton Chekhov, Roald Dahl, and John Updike—some presented as-is, some with an introductory paragraph that gave away the ending, and some with that paragraph incorporated into the text.
