Before artist Sidney Nolan became well-known for his Ned Kelly works – a series of paintings depicting the famous bushranger as a simplified series of dark squares and rectangles set against colourful backdrops – he was an army deserter living in an artistic paradise of sorts.
In the late 1930s Nolan met art patrons John and Sunday Reed.
By the early 1940s he was living with them, producing a prodigious amount of art, and he and Sunday were entangled in an open and torrid love affair.Read More..
Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan has been spotted out and about for the first time in over a year as he ran errands in his crime and homeless-ridden Los Angeles neighborhood. .
The reclusive Australian-born actor wearing jeans and a denim shirt looked gaunt as he pumped gas and washed his windows last month in his Venice neighborhood that has been overrun by vagrants.
The last time Hogan, 82, was photographed in public was last May when he was thought to be pinning up an angry note to vagrants camped outside his $3.5million Venice mansion?Read More..
“We know that microglia can affect the function of the neural circuit, and now we know that neurons can recruit specific types of microglia to their neighborhood,” Arlotta said.
“It’s a fascinating idea that neurons can reshape their environment to help fine-tune their own circuit function.”.

The UK is launching a polio vaccine booster campaign for children in London aged under 10, after confirming that the virus is spreading in the capital for the first time since the 1980s.
The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has identified 116 polio viruses from 19 sewage samples this year in London.
It first raised the alert in June.Read More..
But in addition to the massive electrical charge these jets emit, this particular giant jet perplexed Boggs because it did not take place where these jets are normally observed.
Usually, giant jets occur in tropical environments and are located near parts of storms that are strongly convective, but this one took place in an area of weak convection, Vice explains.
“There was no lightning activity before the gigantic jet in the parent storm cell, which has never been the case from past observations,” Boggs says.Read More..
Artist impression of the circumplanetary disk discovered in 2021 around a young planet in the PDS 70 star system
"Fundamental properties of CPDs, such as their sizes and whether they are indeed rotationally supported 'disks' or instead pressure-supported envelopes are not fully understood," the study authors write.
But having that knowledge could help us extrapolate ancient dynamics of planets in our solar system, including Earth, as well as teach us how moons like our own glowing companion once formed long, long agoRead More..
A total of 2,957 Starlink satellites had entered space prior to yesterday’s launch, of which 2,698 satellites are currently in orbit and 2,662 are currently operational, according to stats collected by astrophysicist Jonathan McDowell.
SpaceX is miles ahead of the competition when it comes to flying its internet satellites to space, an accomplishment largely do to the fact that SpaceX is both a rocket company and a satellite company.
OneWeb, a SpaceX competitor in this realm, has even turned to SpaceX to help it launch its satellites to orbit to form a much smaller internet constellation consisting of 648 satellites.Read More..
When the major ice shelves do calve off huge icebergs, they will leave the Antarctic Ice Sheet smaller than we’ve ever seen it.
But while we’re not yet seeing any abnormal behaviour in these four major ice shelves, the overlooked losses from all the smaller ice shelves fringing the continent are adding up.
Earlier this year, one smaller ice shelf collapsed entirely.Read More..
Sauropods, which weighed up to 50 tonnes and dominated the world’s ecosystems for around 100 million years, appear to have developed soft heel pads early in their evolution, and it was likely a key step that allowed sauropods to become the largest animals to have ever walked the earth!
Our work appears this week in the journal Science Advances?
One of the most notable things about sauropods is the immense size of some species: the feet of sauropod dinosaurs would have shaken the earth as they walked.Read More..

Catching the first possible bus in level 4-2, as was first demonstrated by computer-assisted runs, is sometimes called “Lightning 4-2.” That’s why HappyLee’s computer-aided trick, in which Mario saves a few frames by clipping through the top block in level 4-2, made waves: It was another way for runners to beat the frame rule and theoretically catch that first bus.
Current Super Mario Bros.

In the future, we may implement an additional mode where the vehicle rides are put on a virtual 2D screen in front of the user, so that everyone has a chance to get through the vehicle sections in the game!
This mode would of course be less immersive than the current ones as it’d remove any 3D effect from the experience.
That virtual 2D screen option sounds ideal for anyone who gets queasy.Read More..

Scientists led by researchers at the University of Illinois used antibiotics that were effective against non-resistant bacteria as a baseline to test compounds that might work against drug-resistant “gram-negative” bacteria whose thick cell walls and other internal mechanisms make them hard to treat with normal antibiotics.
One of the modified compounds that they tested, fabimycin, appeared to be effective, reducing drug-resistant bacteria in mice to pre-infection levels and outperforming traditional antibiotics.
Further testing revealed that the compound was also effective against 300 other drug-resistant bacteria in a laboratory setting.Read More..
Seeking to investigate the risk for ALI after COVID-19 vaccination, Wong and colleagues used vaccination and electronic medical records to identify incidence of ALI within 56 days after first and second doses of the two COVID-19 vaccines.
They also evaluated ALI risk from COVID-19 infection.
Researchers analyzed the records of 2,343,288 vaccine recipients, of whom 4,677 had the first ALI incident within the 56-day, post-vaccination time frame.Read More..
“The most striking result is that, during high [working memory] load, healthy adolescents showed a bias for positive emotions, improving (in valence condition) and impairing (in gender condition) performance, whereas this effect was not present in young adults or adolescents with depressive symptoms,” concluded the researchers.
“In comparison to adolescents, the positivity bias in young adults was absent, which supports recent research that documented a positivity bias in healthy adolescents, but not in healthy adults… Our results might have been influenced by the developmental differences in [working memory], and precisely, a heightened sensitivity to positive affective material in adolescents, which might explain why the positivity bias was not present in young adults during high load.”.
The authors cite some limitations to this work including the relatively small sample size of adolescents with depressive symptoms and the inclusion of only three emotional expressions.Read More..
