Scientists Can Now Tell If Someone Is Dreaming from Their Brain Waves

People who are in a deep slumber may not be able to say whether they're dreaming, but their brain waves may reveal it.

'Neuron-Reading' Nanowires Could Accelerate Development of Drugs for Neurological Diseases

Researchers have developed nanowires that can record the electrical activity of neurons in fine detail. The technology will allow for better investigation as to how the brain works.
 
Can't remember if I've posted this one already or not, so my apologies if it's already been seen.

NASA observations reshape basic plasma wave physics

When NASA's Magnetospheric Multiscale—or MMS—mission was launched, the scientists knew it would answer questions fundamental to the nature of our universe—and MMS hasn't disappointed. A new finding, presented in a paper in Nature Communications, provides observational proof of a 50-year-old theory and reshapes the basic understanding of a type of wave in space known as a kinetic Alfvén wave. The results, which reveal unexpected, small-scale complexities in the wave, are also applicable to nuclear fusion techniques, which rely on minimizing the existence of such waves inside the equipment to trap heat efficiently.
 
So I'm in need of a few stats in order to determine whether or not I have the right idea on one possible interpretation of Tesla's 3-6-9 fixation. Only problem is that I'm not really able to google the best (my google-fu sucks, I suppose), so I'm having trouble finding any credible sources for some of this information. If my hunch is anywhere near correct, though, this could be some pretty interesting stuff to the electric universe folks. Just need validation...

So anyway, here's what I'm looking for. If anybody can offer some help with locating good resources on any of these stats I'd be very much grateful.

* average measurements, and/or perigee & apogee measurements of the van allen belt
* measurements of the ionosphere (easy to find, I should have this myself in a little bit here)
* average dimensions of the rest of the Earth's magnetosphere
* the local solar measurements I should be able to find without any problems
* the average size of the heliotrope, or the best measurements that we have of it right now
* estimated si... ver más

Wireless power transmission safely charges devices anywhere within a room

A new method developed by Disney Research for wirelessly transmitting power throughout a room enables users to charge electronic devices as seamlessly as they now connect to WiFi hotspots, eliminating the need for electrical cords or charging cradles.

_Sneak preview!_



_.... here at my workplace, we're gearing up for the upcoming March For Science happening in 300 cities all around the US, which will be 4/22 (Earth Day)... it's not up on our company's website for sale yet, but we have a brand-new shirt design ready to go, which was created by my very good pal and amazing SF bay area artist, Michael Wertz... I'll link back later on if anyone is interested in the page where you can get one!_

Science Rap?

Jocelyn Bell descubrió la primera radioseñal de un púlsar, pero el premio Nobel se lo concedieron a su tutor. Es solo un ejemplo de cientos de mujeres apartadas de la historia. Cuanto olvido, cuanto menosprecio. Espero que mas pronto que tarde recuperemos la memoria de tantas y tantas mujeres silenciadas por la historia o desbancadas en premios y reconocimientos por sus propios compañeros de investigación por el solo hecho de ser mujeres.
Espero que mas pronto que tarde esas situaciones no vuelvan a repetirse nunca. Ningún cerebro creativo sobra en este maltratado planeta, quizás de ello dependa nuestra supervivencia.

Should scientists engage in activism?

In the wake of the Flint water crisis and with a new notably anti-science president, U.S. scientists are reevaluating how to navigate the tension between speaking out and a fear of losing research funding.

The thermodynamics of learning

(Phys.org)—While investigating how efficiently the brain can learn new information, physicists have found that, at the neuronal level, learning efficiency is ultimately limited by the laws of thermodynamics—the same principles that limit the efficiency of many other familiar processes.

#Science doesn't care if you believe in it or not | | Al Jazeera



Activate people, activate.
"It's the job of those citizens to weigh up the evidence and act responsibly. They need to build and support governments and institutions they believe will take the best approach to looking after their interests, but also those of the wider world we all live in together. They also need to hold them to account if they fail to do so.

Again, science doesn't care whether or not we do this.

But our children and grandchildren will. If we hope to survive as a species, we humans should be open, honest, and completely pragmatic about the clear advice science is offering us about the problems we are facing and cooperate internationally to find solutions. To do otherwise is a gamble we cannot afford."

http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2017/01/science-climate-change-170127115338110.html

Science doesn't care if you believe in it or not

Whether you believe in climate change or not, the laws of physics will continue to work and ice will continue to melt.

Why Open Science matters and the FSFE's position on Horizon 2020



Publicado 2017-02
(...) The FSFE's position paper explains how Free Software and Open Standards are fundamental to Open Science and we therefore ask for all publicly-funded research in Europe to mandatorily use and develop Free Software and Open Standards. With the "European Cloud Initiative" in mind, we explicitly ask that "Data and software repositories and Data Management Plans (DMPs) must employ Free Software in order to ensure unfettered access to their contents and long term preservation".

Décroissance et simplicité volontaire : quand la science s'en mêle

Si elle paraît de plus en plus souhaitable et nécessaire, la décroissance (ou Objection de Croissance) a encore un long chemin à parcourir jusqu’aux cœurs des citoyens, mais aussi et surtout au sein de nos sociétés développées happées par le désir d’opulence. Pourtant, les penseurs de ce mouvement sont d’ores et déjà bien présents, attendant le jour où l’idée trouvera écho dans les processus politiques et les actions citoyennes de façon généralisée. En 2013 sortait le livre « Un projet de décroissance », qu’une thèse scientifique vient aujourd’hui appuyer. Vers un nouveau paradigme économique ?

End of nations: Is there an alternative to countries? | New Scientist



"Nation states cause some of our biggest problems, from civil war to climate inaction. Science suggests there are better ways to run a planet"
Try, for a moment, to envisage a world without countries. Imagine a map not divided into neat, coloured patches, each with clear borders, governments, laws. Try to describe anything our society does – trade, travel, science, sport, maintaining peace and security – without mentioning countries. Try to describe yourself: you have a right to at least one nationality, and the right to change it, but not the right to have none.

Those coloured patches on the map may be democracies, dictatorships or too chaotic to be either, but virtually all claim to be one thing: a nation state, the sovereign territory of a “people” or nation who are entitled to self-determination within a
