    In a pioneering study, a team of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston Children’s Hospital have identified a brain network essential for human consciousness. Aided by advances in ultrahigh-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, researchers discovered previously unknown pathways connecting various brain regions, forming what they termed the “default ascending arousal network” (DAAN). In findings published in Science Translational Medicine, researchers propose that this brain network plays a pivotal role in maintaining wakefulness and integrating arousal with awareness in the resting human brain. The discovery could be a significant breakthrough in understanding a range of neurological disorders while shedding...
  • Crows Are Self-Aware and 'Know What They Know,' Just Like Humans

    Crows are even more surprisingly smart than we thought. But do they have true consciousness? Research shows that crows and other corvids “know what they know and can ponder the content of their own minds,” according to STAT. This is considered a cornerstone of self-awareness and shared by just a handful of animal species besides humans. In new research published in Science, German scientists put crows through a series of puzzling tasks. During those tasks, the scientists measured neural activity in different kinds of neurons with the goal of tracking how crows were sensing and reasoning through their work. They...

    I see that Ferguson marked the anniversary of  the “murder” of the Gentle Giant with another “protest” of sorts. One speaker, Yonasda Lonewolf, declared: “Mike Brown was murdered here. This was the epicenter of the movement of ‘black lives matter.’ We still cannot get justice.” She added, “It’s time for us to not seek justice but to demand justice.”  So it appears that Big Guy’s job is indeed done here: he has fundamentally transformed America back to 1967.Detroit Riots, 1967Since our country continues to be besieged by both domestic and international thugs and terrorists it seems wise to acknowledge that...

    Jennifer Aniston is in hot water for using a politically incorrect term on “Live with Regis & Kelly” Thursday morning. While promoting her flick “The Switch,” Aniston discussed her recent Barbra Streisand-inspired photo shoot for “Harper’s Bazaar” on the show. "Yeah, I got to play dress up,” Jen said to Regis, “I do it for a living, like a retard!" Now, disability advocates are bashing the actress for her word choice. A rep for the Special Olympics tells “Us Weekly,” "People with intellectual disabilities have fought their whole lives for understanding and recognition. When people continue to use the R...

    I saw two amazing women speak this week about mistakes that men don’t make. They presented eight ways that women sabotage their own credibility and results in their business and personal lives. Here’s the short list: 1. Seeking Validation 2. Hoping for the Best 3. Avoiding Confrontation 4. Resisting Duality (this one’s very interesting….) 5. Blending In 6. Diminishing 7. Making It Personal 8. Taking It Personal

    TRANSFORMATION THROUGH SELF-AWARENESS by Theodore J. Nottingham You and I are not simply men and women who pay our bills, bring up families, experience joys and sorrows and finally pass away like a dream that suddenly ends. We are much more than this. In our bodies that grow old, our spirits are made in the image of the Creator. We are not simply our picture on our driver's license or our social security number. We are the spiritual children of the eternal Creator. But we limit ourselves to our nationality, our gender, our age. Nationality, for instance, can be...
