Researchers will examine the brains of living fetuses to study the origins of mental disorders like autism.
Researchers in London plan to examine the brains of living fetuses in order to understand how the brain organizes itself during critical stages of its development. The hope is that a dynamic map of the connections forming in the unborn’s brain will help researchers better understand the origins of disorders such as autism.

Boy George @ Irving Plaza, 4/22/2014
George quoted Eckhart Tolle telling the crowd to stay in the now and songs included "Feel the Vibration," "Live Your Life" and George proclaimed that "love is bigger than war" during the track "Bigger Than War." George, who seemed happy to be back on the New York stage soaked up the love that the crowd (which included Miss Guy and Debbie Harry) was showering him with. He told funny anecdotes in between songs and thanked the crowd for not talking too loudly to each other during the new songs. He especially thanked the crowd for supporting his new album - [Accorging2G]With a new solo album out, Boy George made his NYC live stage return last night (4/22) at Irving Plaza, part of his current tour. The two-hour set featured much of the new album, covers (Yoko Ono, Bread, T. Rex, Bob Dylan), solo material but just a mere four Culture Club songs ("Church of the Poison Mind," "Karma Chameleon," "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?" and "Victims"). What, no "Time (Clock of the Heart)"?
Full setlist, videos and more pictures from the show are below...
When it was first released back in 1986, the adidas APS represented the best in running footwear cushioning technology thanks to its infinitely adjustable spring shock absorption system - one that could be fine-tuned with the turn of an accompanying key.

Retaining its bespoke cushioning, the 2014 releases include OG builds of mesh and synthetics with red and blue accents throughout. Available in its original colorway and a brand new flipped "Nighthawk" edition, the adidas Originals APS is set to hit select stockists May 1.

Everybody and their mother has been predicting the death of capitalism for the last couple of years, ever since the bankers screwed eveything up etc.
That might be true, it probably isn’t. But even if it capitalism were to bite the dust, it doesn’t mean socialism will take its place. I imagine something else would have to emerge instead, something that Marx or Lenin could not possibly have foreseen.
Basically, the entire economy will be Internet-connected: energy, logistics and information- and we’ll make our livings by plugging into it, somehow. i.e. The Internet Of Things. A triumpherate of computer coding, 3-D printing and renewable energy, as opposed to the broadcast, automobile and petroleum triumperate our parents grew up on.
Not sure where the average shmoe fits into this, or at least, the part where the average shmoe makes an OK living working nine to five in an office.
Maybe he doesn’t.
Maybe nobody does, except for a tiny elite at the top, with an obediant and effective military keeping public order. Game of Thrones, eat your heart out.
