The Brain ‘Rotates’ Memories to Save Them From New Sensations
Neural representations of sensory information get rotated 90 degrees to transform them into memories. In this orthogonal arrangement, the memories and sensations do not interfere with one another.

Libby and Buschman (2021) Rotational dynamics reduce interference between sensory and memory representations: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41593-021-00821-9

QUarks liegen weit über meinem Verständnislevel. Und jetzt haben Quarks etwas gemacht, was auch die Experten überrascht hat - da es nicht dem entspricht, was das "Standardmodell der Elementarteilchenphysik" erwartet.

Located around 5,000 light-years away in the constellation of Cygnus (the Swan), Abell 78 is an unusual type of planetary nebula.
It is the result of a so-called “born again” star.

Rapid Action on COVID-19 and Earth observation Dashboard Challenges 2021

Do you have fresh ideas on how Earth observation data can contribute to monitoring the effects brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic? If so, ESA and the European Commission have launched a new series of monthly challenges asking for innovative solutions on how satellite data can be used to help better understand the effects of the coronavirus on society, economy and the environment.

**Deforestation is stressing mammals out**

"By analyzing hormones that accumulate in fur, researchers found that rodents and marsupials living in smaller patches of South America's Atlantic Forest are under more stress than ones living in more intact forests."

Knowledge wants to be free. But there is no commodity on earth for which there is not SOMEONE who wants to fence it in, even if it isn't theirs, and charge admission.

@Keiko Hunari By the way... Welcome to the Fediverse, this universe of free, federated social networks!
You may want to introduce yourself to the community by using some tags, such us #newhere and others that might give people an idea of what are you interested in (like #worms, #nature, #art, #science, #socialjustice, #farming, #family... You know...). That will open some doors for you and allow you to get in touche with similar-minded people.


Moderna says possible allergic reactions to COVID-19 vaccine under investigation | Reuters

Moderna Inc said on Tuesday it had received a report from California’s health department that several people at a center in San Diego were treated for possible allergic reactions to its COVID-19 vaccine from a particular batch.
The company’s comments come after California’s top epidemiologist on Sunday issued a statement recommending providers pause vaccination from lot no. 41L20A due to possible allergic reactions that are under investigation.

Many industries use heat-intensive processes that generally require the burning of fossil fuels, but a surprising green fuel alternative is emerging in the form of metal powders. Ground very fine, cheap iron powder burns readily at high temperatures, releasing energy as it oxidizes in a process that emits no carbon and produces easily collectable rust, or iron oxide, as its only emission.
Metal Powders as Recyclable Fuel
