LSD microdoses make people feel sharper, and scientists want to know how - The Verge May didn’t notice much with the first dose of LSD. She felt good, and she got a lot accomplished, and that was all. It was the day after that things really clicked. She felt even better, and she got a lot more accomplished. She repeated this pattern for a month — one 10-microgram dose of LSD every fourth day — as per the regimen recommended by psychologist and microdosing research pioneer James Fadiman’s protocol, made mainstream-famous by Ayelet Waldman’s monthlong LSD self-study chronicled in last year’s A Really Good Day. “I did a little experiment,” says May, a 64-year-old psychotherapist in Marin County requesting anonymity. This wasn’t May’s first time doing acid. Microdosing provided that sharpness for May, as advertised. “For me, it's just clarity. Microdosing is trendy. So what’s happening physiologically to someone on a low dose of LSD? All reporting on microdosing’s purported benefits has been anecdotal, speculative. LSD is mostly known as the mascot for 1960s counterculture.

Space Station's EarthKAM Sees the Grand Canyon This panorama, photographed by an astronaut aboard the International Space Station, shows nearly the full length of Lake Powell, the reservoir on the Colorado River in southern Utah and northern Arizona. Note that the ISS was north of the lake at the time, so in this view south is at the top left of the image. At full capacity, the reservoir impounds 24,322,000 acre-feet of water, a vast amount that is used to generate and supply water to several western United States, while also aiding in flood control for the region. Landscape elevation changes are hard to see from space, but astronauts learn to interpret high and low places by their color. The region draws nearly 2 million people every year, even though it is remote and has few roads. Annotated image: NASA's Earth Observatory Image Credit: NASA Caption: M.

Travel - The island with £100 million hidden According to legend, pirate treasure reportedly worth £100 million is buried on an Indian Ocean island. Although the region is thought to be littered with hidden treasure, this one is said to be the Holy Grail, the world’s biggest booty haul. The story, which reads like a Hollywood script, has been passed down through generations on the islands of the Seychelles and La Réunion. Although many have tried – and failed – to locate the bounty, two men have devoted their lives to the quest. Reginald Herbert Cruise-Wilkins, known locally on the Seychelles island of Mahé as the ‘Treasure Man’, hunted the fortune for 27 years until his death in 1977. When I first met John, he immediately barked that I was half an hour late. This one is said to be the Holy Grail, the world’s biggest booty haul. But as he showed me around what he believes is the treasure site, and talked about the clues and what he had left to do, the gruff man melted into one you couldn’t help but root for. Levasseur kept the rest.

Is the Internet Ruining Tattoos? Ever since I was a teenager, I wanted to get a tattoo. An obscure line of poetry in high school, a big art-deco design in college... over the years, the ideas changed, but never the basic desire. Then, in July 2016, after almost two decades of talking about it, I walked into a local tattoo parlor on the Jersey Shore with a sense of resolve: I wanted a simple black line, representing the crest of a wave, inside my wrist. The appointment took less than an hour, and the tattoo was done in a matter of minutes. Did I just get a Pinterest tattoo? Ask an experienced tattoo artist and he or she will tell you that the internet is changing the business. The result, artists say, is that clients, particularly walk-ins, are generally less interested in the styles of specific artists and less open to input — they have rigid ideas about how they think their ink should look. When talking to a tattoo artist, the phrase “Pinterest tattoo” has few different connotations.

Arquivo Nacional - SIAN - Sistema de Informações O Sistema de Informações do Arquivo Nacional – SIAN é a principal base de dados da instituição e está dividida em dois módulos com naturezas distintas: Multinível - Descrição Multinível e MAPA - Memória da Administração Pública. No módulo Multinível, o consulente pode ter um panorama de todo o acervo custodiado pela instituição, além de se informar sobre bases específicas e outros instrumentos de pesquisa fora do sistema que podem auxiliá-lo em sua busca. Nesse módulo é possível observar desde a lista de instituições e pessoas (quase 900) cujos acervos estão no Arquivo Nacional, passando pela organização da documentação até o documento em si. Nele é possível ainda localizar documentos por meio da “Pesquisa Livre”, que possibilita a busca de uma palavra em todos os campos da descrição, ou pela “Pesquisa Avançada”, quando o consulente pode restringir a sua busca por assunto, datas, local de produção, entre outros.

Eu nunca pintei sonhos. “Frida Kahlo demorou a ser reconhecida como grande artista, obscurecida que foi pelo brilho dos muralistas mexicanos, um deles seu marido Diego Rivera. Movimento artístico original e inovador, nascido da Revolução Mexicana, o muralismo deu a nota nos anos de 20 e 30. A fama dos muralistas mexicanos logo ultrapassaria fronteiras. A icônica Frida Kahlo pode ser vista em diversas fotografias, no entanto, algumas delas só vieram a público recentemente. Conhecido por ser um dos melhores fotógrafos de retratos da história, Freund guardou diversas dessas imagens, em que Frida aparece passeando pelo jardim, pintando ou brincando com seus cachorros. “Frida foi uma mulher atípica à procura de sua própria identidade; uma mulher passional, independente e forte que viveu de acordo com seus próprios princípios.
