Princess Charlotte: Kensington Palace releases new photos   BBC - November 29, 2015

Princess Charlotte looks delighted with a cuddly toy dog in a photo taken by her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge. It's one of two images of the 6-month-old princess released Sunday by Kensington Palace. The pictures of Charlotte in a Liberty print dress and pink cardigan were taken earlier this month at Anmer Hall, Prince William and Kate's country home in eastern England. The photos were released to thank well-wishers for all the "warm messages about Princess Charlotte" the family has received. Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born May 2 and is fourth in to the British throne after Prince Charles, her father Prince William and her 2-year-old brother, Prince George.

Bizarre Ancient Sea Creature Was Well-Armed for Feeding   Live Science - November 29, 2015
A bizarre creature that looks like nothing alive on Earth today probably used its unique shape to collect drifting particles from the ocean to feed on, new research finds. Tribrachidium was a denizen of the shallow seas about 550 million years ago, during the late Ediacaran period. It looked like a disc with three tentaclelike arms protruding from its flat top. Oddly, Tribrachidium had three-fold symmetry, meaning three segments were mirror images of each other. For comparison, humans have two-fold, or bilateral, symmetry, and starfish have five-fold symmetry. Nothing alive today has three-fold symmetry. Because we have no obvious modern comparison, that's made it really hard to work out what this organism was like when it was alive — how it moved, if it moved, how it fed, how it reproduced.

Are these mystery signals messages from Aliens? Strange radio waves could be coming from a distant planet, say scientists   Daily Mail - November 29, 2015
Scientists are trying to work out what is causing fast radio bursts (FRBs). The strange signals occur for a few milliseconds and come from nowhere. Latest signals picked up in Australia included a new double blast pattern. This rules out some other explanations for FRBs, such as star mergers. Five mysterious signals coming from outside the Milky Way may have been sent by an alien civilization. At least that's one of the theories astronomers are using to explain the appearance of a new series of 'fast radio bursts'. So far, only 11 of these strange radio pulses have been recorded before around the world. The latest signals, which was picked up by the Parkes radio telescope in Australia, included a new double blast accompanied by four 'single' bursts.

The Brat Pack

The Brat Pack is a nickname given to a group of young actors who frequently appeared together in teen-oriented coming-of-age films in the 1980s. First mentioned in a 1985 New York magazine article, it is now usually defined as the cast members of two specific films released in 1985 - The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire- although other actors are sometimes included. The "core" members are considered to be Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy. The actors themselves were known to dislike the label. Many of their careers peaked in the mid-1980s but had interruptions afterward for various reasons. However, the films they starred in together are frequently referenced in popular culture and are regarded as some of the most influential of their time.

The blind woman who switched personalities and could suddenly see   Washington Post - November 28, 2015
After suffering a traumatic accident as a young woman, doctors diagnosed her with cortical blindness, caused by damage to the visual processing centers in her brain. So she got a seeing eye dog to guide her and grew accustomed to the darkness. Besides, B.T. had other health problems to cope with - namely, more than 10 wildly different personalities that competed for control of her body. It was while seeking treatment for her dissociative identity disorder that the ability to see suddenly returned. Not to B.T., a 37-year-old German woman. But to a teenage boy she sometimes became. With therapy, over the course of months, all but two of B.T.'s identities regained their sight. And as B.T. oscillated between identities, her vision flicked on and off like a light switch in her mind. The world would appear, then go dark.

CERN collides heavy nuclei at new record high energ   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015
The world's most powerful accelerator, the 27 km long Large Hadron Collider (LHC) operating at CERN in Geneva established collisions between lead nuclei, this morning, at the highest energies ever. The LHC has been colliding protons at record high energy since the summer, but now the time has now come to collide large nuclei (nuclei of lead, Pb, consist of 208 neutrons and protons). The experiments aim at understanding and studying the properties of strongly interacting systems at high densities and thus the state of matter of the Universe shortly after the Big Bang.

'Material universe' yields surprising new particle   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015
An international team of researchers has predicted the existence of a new type of particle called the type-II Weyl fermion in metallic materials. When subjected to a magnetic field, the materials containing the particle act as insulators for current applied in some directions and as conductors for current applied in other directions. This behavior suggests a range of potential applications, from low-energy devices to efficient transistors.

Cambridge holographic technology adopted by Jaguar Land Rover   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015
Cambridge researchers have developed a new type of head-up display for vehicles which is the first to use laser holographic techniques to project information such as speed, direction and navigation onto the windscreen so the driver doesn't have to take their eyes off the road. Cars can now park for us, help us from skidding out of control, or even prevent us from colliding with other cars. Head-up displays (HUD) are one of the many features which have been incorporated into cars in recent years. Alongside the development of more sophisticated in-car technology, various companies around the world, most notably Google, are developing autonomous cars.

Gold and platinum offer clues about the moon's mysterious tilt   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015

Fossil vertebrae reveal clues to evolution of long neck in giraffe   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015
For many years, the researchers note, textbooks have used S. major as an example of evolution in progress, with a neck shorter than a modern giraffe (whose neck is on average 2 meters long), but longer than the okapi (just 60 centimeters) - the two represent its only modern relatives, both of which live in Africa - all three are members of the giraffid family. But actual fossil evidence of the evolutionary changes had been lacking, in this new effort, the researchers sought to find that confirmation.

Betrayals of trust helped the rapid spread of human species around the world   PhysOrg - November 27, 2015
New research by an archaeologist suggests that betrayals of trust were the missing link in understanding the rapid spread of our own species around the world. The speed and character of human dispersals changed significantly around 100,000 years ago. Before then, movement of archaic humans were slow and largely governed by environmental events due to population increases or ecological changes. Afterwards populations spread with remarkable speed and across major environmental barriers.

His response - three weeks - amazed the interviewer and ignited an enduring myth that the book was composed in a marathon of nonstop typing. Like the Kerouac of legend, some people possess the incredible ability to focus for long periods of time. Others constantly struggle to keep their minds on task.
