Google just created the most detailed image of a brain yet

Scientists have created the most detailed 3D map of an organism brain to date. The mesmerizing threads of blue, yellow, purple and green represent thousands of brain cells and millions of connections found inside the brain of a fruit fly.

This high-resolution map, known as a “connectome,” only makes up one-third of a fruit fly’s brain but includes a large region involved in learning, navigation, smell and vision. Scientists found over 4,000 different types of neurons, including those involved in the fly’s circadian rhythm — or internal clock — that might help researchers learn a bit more about how the insect sleeps, according to the publicly released data.

This map, a collaboration between scientists at Google and the Janelia Research Campus in Virginia, took two years to create. The team started out by cutting a fruit fly brain into extremely thin slices using a hot knife — and then imaging each slice under an electron microscope. Afterward, they stitched the images together to create a large map, tracing the paths of the neurons through the brain, according to the statement.

The point of such maps is to reveal something about how specific physical connections in the brain are linked to distinct behaviors. But following each individual neuron in a journey across the brain is painstaking work — and critics note that such maps have not yet led to a major discovery, according to The Verge.

The only organism to have its entire brain mapped this way is the roundworm C. elegans — a wriggly critter that only harbors around 300 to 400 neurons and around 7,000 synapses, or the junctions between brain cells. Other teams have attempted to map the human brain in lower resolution. But considering that the human brain contains 86 billion neurons, creating such a map will likely take some more time.

The new map was published on Jan. 21 in the database BioRxiv, and it has not yet been peer reviewed.

Courteney Cox Shares Classic Snap Of The ‘Friends’ Recreating ‘The Last Supper’

Courteney Cox took a stroll down memory lane on Thursday when she shared a throwback snap of the “Friends” cast on Instagram.

Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc pose next to a table of food before taping the final episode of the hit sitcom in the image taken on Jan 23, 2004.

Cox called it “The Last Supper.”

It does bear a resemblance to Leonardo da Vinci’s 15th-century painting of the same name:

Cox’s post, which also included a photo of the script and came amid continuing rumors of an unscripted reunion special, prompted an outpouring of love and emotion from her 7.1 million followers.

“To this day I still get emotional watching it,” wrote one. Said another: “You can literally see the heart ache (sic) in this pic.” Aniston (who played Rachel Green) and Kudrow (aka Phoebe Buffay) also chimed in:

Cox’s snap racked up more than 2.1 million “likes” in its first eight hours online.

But it still has some way to go to reach the popularity of Aniston’s October picture of the cast ― her first-ever Instagram post that glitched the service ― which to date has been “liked” more than 15.7 million times.

Cox, who played Monica Geller in the show, last May shared this 1994 picture that was taken before the pilot aired. “The one where the six of us went to Vegas and no one knew we were F.R.I.E.N.D.S. yet,” she wrote.

North Carolina man held woman in ‘sexual servitude’ for 5 years, sheriff says

Westlake Legal Group EPAxlpwXsAAAg8A North Carolina man held woman in 'sexual servitude' for 5 years, sheriff says fox-news/us/us-regions/southeast/north-carolina fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc fe388cbd-e70b-5a67-9cfe-d86d0e1dd6bf Associated Press article

ASHEBORO, N.C.– A man is accused of keeping a woman “in sexual servitude” for five years, authorities in North Carolina said.

Salvador Espinoza Escobar, 48, was expected in court Friday after being charged with one count of felony human trafficking, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release. He was taken into custody Wednesday, the same day the investigation began.

Information from the National Human Trafficking Tip Line helped deputies capture Escobar, the sheriff’s office said. He’s accused of withholding basic needs from the woman in exchange for forced sexual acts since January 2015.

Human trafficking isn’t highly reported in Randolph County, according to the sheriff’s office, which said this is its first arrest of this nature. The sheriff’s office is working with World Relief Triad — an organization that helps human trafficking survivors and others — to help the victim, news outlets reported.

No further information about the victim was expected to be released, for her protection and privacy, the release said.

Escobar was being held in the Randolph County Detention Center on a $100,000 secured bond. It’s unclear whether he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Fans shocked that James Corden doesn’t always drive on ‘Carpool Karaoke’

Westlake Legal Group 1280_james_corden_0 Fans shocked that James Corden doesn't always drive on 'Carpool Karaoke' New York Post fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/entertainment/music fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Elizabeth Rosner article 2043aa5f-8de4-56c6-a155-3e971e10b3f2

How does James Corden hit those high notes on “Carpool Karaoke?” By not driving.

Fans of the popular show were outraged after a Twitter user uploaded a video of Corden alongside Justin Bieber filming a segment for Carpool Karaoke in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

Corden was behind the wheel in his black Range Rover — which was being towed by a truck.

JAMES CORDEN: ‘ALL THE PEOPLE THAT I LIKE AND RESPECT’ DON’T LIKE TRUMP

“Saw James corden and Justin Bieber filming carpool karaoke and this is why I have trust issues — he isn’t even driving!” Twitter user Zoli Honig wrote.

The short clip has been viewed over 11 million times as of Thursday night.

Some fans on social media were disappointed that Corden deceived his viewers. Others were happy the late-night host put the safety of his crew first.

“Who thought James drove that car the entire time he is talking and singing?” one fan tweeted.

“I have seen James eyes on the road 30% of the times that he is driving. I wondered how he didn’t crash. I actually feel better now.”

JAMES CORDEN FIRED BACK AT A TROLL WHO WISHED CANCER ON HIS SON OVER A ‘GAME OF THRONES’ JOKE

Another Twitter user joked: “All along I used to respect James Corden for being able to concentrate on driving and singing at the same time.

“But now I feel betrayed. So even the Amigos, Mariah Carey, Michelle Obama and the rest was just a lie.”

The Late Late Show responded to the internet frenzy later Thursday.

“James always drives during Carpool Karaoke,” the show said in a statement.

“However, on the rare occasion when there is a stunt component and the producers feel it is unsafe to drive, we will use a rig.”

Woman reportedly bragged about using medicine to lower temperature at airport’s coronavirus screening

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6126007036001_6126006366001-vs Woman reportedly bragged about using medicine to lower temperature at airport’s coronavirus screening fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox-news/health fox news fnc/health fnc Brie Stimson article 3829f2cf-c1b7-5978-8ba1-3d5736e2d385

The Chinse embassy in Paris has reportedly tracked down a woman who bragged on social media that she was able to get through coronavirus screening at the airport by taking medicine to lower her fever.

The woman left Wuhan, China, where the virus was first detected, before the city was quarantined and later posted pictures on her Instagram, claiming to be at a restaurant in Lyon, France, BBC News reported.

“Just before I left, I had a low fever and cough. I was scared to death and rushed to eat [fever-reducing] medicine,” the woman tweeted, according to BBC. “I kept on checking my temperature. Luckily I managed to get it down and my exit was smooth.”

On Thursday, the embassy said she no longer had a fever or cough but she would get further tests.

The case highlights the problem with temperature screenings, the main way major airports are testing travelers for the virus to prevent its spread.

As the number of coronavirus patients increases, doctors are also reportedly noticing that some of those infected show little or no fever, a fact that could complicate detection.

China’s National Health Commission told local governments that along with some patients not getting a fever they could also go as long as two weeks without showing any symptoms, Bloomberg reported, sourcing people familiar with the matter.

CORONAVIRUS: WHO IS MOST AT-RISK?

”The whole airport screening exercise is to simply give people comfort that there is some government action to protect the public,” Ramanan Laxminarayan, director of the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy in Washington, D.C., said, according to Bloomberg. “It has no real public health utility in the case of coronaviruses. What really matters is surveillance, infection control and isolation.”

While all of the patients who have died from the virus exhibited some symptoms, including a cough, shortness of breath and chest tightness, some of them did not have a fever.

“People can cross borders without a fever then get sick after their arrival and taking paracetamol or aspirin can bring a fever down so it isn’t detected,” World Health Organization adviser David Heymann said, according to Bloomberg.

In the last week, the Chinese government quarantined the city of Wuhan, where the virus was first detected, and restricted travel in cities nearby, affecting millions of people just before the Lunar New Year.

The most effective way to detect the virus is through kits that use the genetic makeup of the virus, according to Bloomberg. Public health officials around the world have access to the test kits but they’re in low supply and Wuhan has already run out.

At least 25 people have died from the pneumonia-like disease and 800 patients have been sickened, Bloomberg reported.

George Soros accuses Facebook of working to re-elect Trump: report

Left-wing billionaire George Soros has accused Facebook of helping to re-elect Donald Trump leading up to the 2020 election.

Soros, 89, made the comments during a speech in Davos, Switzerland, Thursday. He accused the social media giant of working to re-elect Trump during this year’s election campaign in exchange for protection.

“Facebook will work to re-elect Trump and Trump will protect Facebook,” the Hungarian-born U.S. investor said, according to Politico. “It makes me very concerned about the outcome of 2020.”

A Facebook company spokesman responded to Politico, saying “This is just plain wrong.”

On Jan. 9, Facebook announced that it would continue to let politicians run advertisements and would not police the truthfulness of the messages posted.

“Ultimately, we don’t think decisions about political ads should be made by private companies,” Rob Leathern, Facebook’s director of product management, said at the time.

“In the absence of regulation, Facebook and other companies are left to design their own policies. We have based ours on the principle that people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public,” Leathern added.

Soros’ speech was made at a dinner hosted by the Open Society Foundations, an international grantmaking network founded by the billionaire. During the speech, he also criticized certain world leaders — including Trump, China’s Xi Jinping, India’s Narendra Modi, Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro and Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, according to Politico.

Soros said called Xi Jinping a “dictator” while exclaiming Trump was “a con man and a narcissist, who wants the world to revolve around him.”

He also praised Greta Thunberg and other teenage climate activists for their actions in addressing climate change, the outlet said.

In addition, Soros announced he was giving $1 billion into a new university network, which will be built around Bard College, north of New York City, and Soros’ Central European University.

Ex-Bush Speechwriter Makes Chilling Prediction About How Trump Will React To Acquittal

Westlake Legal Group 5e2aa4392400009003c9747f Ex-Bush Speechwriter Makes Chilling Prediction About How Trump Will React To Acquittal

“The president never views a near-miss as an opportunity for reflection and reformation. He sees it as permission to indulge his every urge,” Gerson wrote in a new column for The Washington Post.

“And his most consistent urge has been to seek unfair advantage in the upcoming presidential election,” he continued. “The months between Senate acquittal and the November vote will be fertile ground for further cheating.”

Gerson also called out the “barefaced bad faith” of Republican senators in the trial who have complained there’s “nothing new” in the case Democrats are making against Trump while simultaneously “actively opposing the introduction of new evidence and new testimony.”

“In this matter, elected Republicans are mainly serving, not the president, and certainly not the republic, but themselves,” he said. “Having decided that no amount of evidence would be sufficient for conviction, they realize that the presentation of a full and compelling case would convict them of servility and institutional surrender. So a quick and dirty Senate trial is the best way to limit the exposure of their malpractice.”

Joni Ernst calls out Democrats over aid to Ukraine: ‘Hypocrisy is on full display’

Westlake Legal Group AP20021604958569 Joni Ernst calls out Democrats over aid to Ukraine: 'Hypocrisy is on full display' fox-news/world/conflicts/ukraine fox-news/us/us-regions/midwest/iowa fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/person/adam-schiff fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 59b1d2dd-bf69-500a-87d6-2e9c29edd88d

Democrats’ claim that the Trump administration broke America’s promise to protect Ukraine from Russia by withholding military aid is just an example of the party’s hypocrisy, Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, claimed Thursday.

“The Democratic House Managers’ hypocrisy is on full display,” Ernst wrote on Twitter on Thursday evening, after Day 3 of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial. “They’ve spent most of their time lecturing the Senate on aid to Ukraine, yet four of them voted AGAINST legislation that provided the very same aid they’re lecturing us on.”

“What I find very interesting now is that the House Managers are very, very centered on the fact that Russia was invading Ukraine. And military funding to Ukraine,” she said during a break from President Trump’s impeachment trial earlier Thursday, reminding reporters that Crimea was invaded in 2014 during the Obama administration.

Ernst told reporters the Obama administration reacted to the invasion by “sending blankets.”

Her remarks came after lead House Manager Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said the Trump administration had abused its power by withholding $400 million in military aid allegedly on the condition of investigating the Bidens.

Ernst said that, unlike former President Obama, Trump has sent “lethal aid” to Ukraine.

“These House managers did nothing of the sort to provide that assistance to Ukraine and yet now they are on their high horse … for President Trump not doing enough for Ukraine,” she added.

“These House managers did nothing of the sort to provide that assistance to Ukraine and yet now they are on their high horse … for President Trump not doing enough for Ukraine.”

Republicans criticized Obama for sanctioning Russia rather than sending arms to Ukraine after the 2014 invasion; the Obama administration said they were concerned that sending lethal aid could escalate the situation with Russia.

“The fact is that Ukraine, which is a non-NATO country, is going to be vulnerable to military domination by Russia no matter what we do,” Obama told The Atlantic at the time.

Between 2014 and 2016 the Obama administration also sent more than $600 million in assistance to Ukraine and started the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative that sends U.S. military equipment, Politifact reported.
