"You imagine it being this big thing but honestly it's tiny, it's so small. The energy is crazy and people are running around and it goes so quickly, and one of the cast members comes up and says, 'Hey I'm friends with Weird Al Yankovic and he wants to talk to you about doing one of your songs.' And so I think we talked to him in the dressing room of SNL . He called the phone. You know you've arrived when Weird Al ... it was pretty huge. And he did a good job." 17.

After all, the majority of male Palestinian refugees in Syria have undergone military training by the PLA, under the auspices of the Syrian armed forces. The international media has tended to focus on events in Yarmouk as the ‘one’ Palestinian story inside Syria, but this is far from accurate. There are about 14 different refugee camps in the country, each with its own experiences in this Syrian conflict. #حلب_تباد #كلنا_حلب #حماس_29 pic.twitter.com/AFyFyCICs6 Amal Zohud (@96Ihope) December 16, 2016 Armed Hamas fighters pose with a sign saying Aleppo is being annihilated #We_are_all_Aleppo Homs sweet Homs The Homs camp is starkly different from Yarmouk and Jeramana for one main reason: there is not an armed person in sight. The main thoroughfare is crowded with shops and one has to weave through the throngs of people going about their daily chores.

This shorter and lower-quality sleep then also tended to lead to more stressors the following day, with participants reporting higher work-to-family conflict than usual on the days following shorter and lower-quality sleep, as well as less time for themselves to exercise and less time for their children. This in turn affected the next night's sleep, with all three stressors linked with a longer time to fall asleep that night. In the second study, published in Annals of Behavioral Medicine, the team analysed 1,900 daily interviews from employees in the IT and extended care industries and also found that better sleep quality was linked to improved emotions, more positive events and experiences, less confict and fewer stressors on the following day. Commenting on the significance of the findings Orfeu Buxton, senior author of the two studies, said, "Sleep plays a central role in our daily lives.

A WOMAN'S account of how she almost lost RM100,00 after doing a good deed has gone viral on Facebook. "That's why I am vulnerable because i have a kind heart," Gillian Benjamin said in a Facebook post relating how she helped victims of an accident last year, but ended up on the losing end. It all started on a rainy day when a Yamaha super bike was hit by a car, which then hit the back of Gillian's car due to the impact. Gillian noticed that the riders had been run over and instinctively ran to help the husband and wife duo who lay on the road injured, in the pouring rain. She contacted the wife's mother to inform her of the accident and tended to the victims until the ambulance arrived an hour later. Throughout the incident, the driver who had caused the accident was nowhere to be seen. According to Gillian, the driver only got out to fix his car bumper and then drove off, without so much as a glance at the injured riders.

The stigma associated with prejudice against women and people of color seems to transfer from one group to another, according to new findings. In a series of experiments, researchers found that women tended to believe that a person who espoused racist beliefs would also show sexist beliefs and behavior, while men of color believed that someone who expressed sexist attitudes was likely to show racist tendencies.

(credit: Jan Krutisch ) By scanning the growing brains of 148 babies with high- and low-risks of autism, researchers could predict which children would develop the disorder within the first year of life before symptoms began appearing and diagnoses were made at two, researchers reported Wednesday in Nature. Those researchers, led by psychologists Heather Cody Hazlett and Joseph Piven at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, got the idea for the study after finding earlier that children with autism tended to have larger brains than kids without the disorder. To follow up, they used magnetic resonance imaging to track and predict brain overgrowth as it happened. In all, the study raises hope that doctors will one day be able to make diagnoses quickly, allowing for earlier and earlier interventions. The study has limitations, of course: it was small, so researchers will need to repeat it with far more children to confirm the findings.

All participants were in good health, and the researchers adjusted their analysis for personality traitslike extraversion, neuroticism, and agreeablenessthat might influence their findings. Overall, married people had lower cortisol levels than those who had never been or had previously been married. Their cortisol levels also tended to drop faster throughout the afternoon, compared to those who had never been married. (Cortisol naturally tends to be highest in the morning, but quicker declines have been linked to lower rates of heart disease and other positive health outcomes.) Consistently high cortisol levels, which can be caused by ongoing stress, can interfere with the bodys ability to regulate inflammation, the authors say. Inflammation has been linked to many health conditions, including heart problems, lower immunity, diabetes, and cancer.

Plenty of engineers claim a hydraulic setup still suffers less friction and delivers greater feedback, but electric ones have become much more powerful over the last five years and now offer much greater tuning potential. Ferrari’s tended towards lighter rim feel and increasingly high-geared racks these last few years, too – making seamless integration of an EPS quite a challenge. I missed the opportunity to drive the F12tdf, but colleagues tell me it’s a mightily imposing machine, so refining the effect of that car’s side slip control and virtual short wheelbase systems will probably be key to giving the 812 Superfast the broader appeal and better approachability it’ll need. It may sound crazy but this car can’t afford to be all white-knuckle excitement; the best V12 Ferraris knew how to tour with moderation as well.

Benjamin K. Sovacool, a research fellow at the National University of Singapore, recently analyzed more than one hundred lifecycle studies of nuclear plants around the world, his results published in August in Energy Policy . From the 19 most reliable assessments, Sovacool found that estimates of total lifecycle carbon emissions ranged from 1.4 grammes of carbon dioxide equivalent per kilowatt-hour (gCO 2 e/kWh) of electricity produced up to 288 gCO 2 e/kWh. Sovacool believes the mean of 66 gCO 2 e/kWh to be a reasonable approximation. The large variation in emissions estimated from the collection of studies arises from the different methodologies used – those on the low end, says Sovacool, tended to leave parts of the lifecycle out of their analyses , while those on the high end often made unrealistic assumptions about the amount of energy used in some parts of the lifecycle.

In the first, they had to collect apples that appeared on screen, but with the added twist that each AI had a laser that could temporarily disable its opposite number if it chose to use it. Video of Gathering gameplay The result from thousands of run throughs? Surprisingly human. When digital apples were in abundance, the AIs would generally cooperate peacefully, collecting the apples as they went along. As soon as apples became scarce, however, the weapons came into force. Sound familiar? Oh, and larger, more intelligent neural networks tended to shoot their opponent no matter how many apples there were around. Read into that what you will, although Google doesnt necessarily think this means selfish is smart. It might just be that because shooting requires more “skill”, the dumber AI didnt want to distract from the task of apple hunting unless absolutely necessary.

Being environmentally friendly does cost however, with a cassava bag typically about three US cents more expensive than a plastic bag. The material for the other products Avani Eco sells are sourced in Indonesia, but some items are currently made in China as it is more cost effective to do so — though this does add to their carbon footprint. Kumala says the final products can biodegrade in just a matter of months — and the bags disappear almost instantly in hot water — unlike the years required for conventional plastic to break down. However other bioplastics have long been on the market, and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has expressed scepticism about the industry. The UN body concluded in a 2015 report that they tended to be more expensive and were unlikely to play a major role in reducing marine litter. Bioplastics are defined as plastics made from materials such as corn starch and vegetable fats and oil, while common plastics are made from natural gas or petroleum.

The best food experiences were from carts on the street and small stations set up at bars. The Trinidadian roti in particular was as filling as it was tasty. Beer was local and cheap, with Stag being the go-to brand among the locals. In more touristy locales, bars tended to have fruity tropical drinks that packed a punch and were usually made with rum. This breakfast plate cost about $3. Image courtesy of the author. 3. The Culture Is Mellow, and the People Are Welcoming Trinidad and Tobago has the laid-back atmosphere you'd expect from a couple of Caribbean islands , but with bursts of energy ready to surprise you around every corner. From local painters working their canvases before your eyes to a parking lot turned into a steel-drum festival, the arts are alive and well here. My favorite kind of places to visit are where tourists are welcomed but not exalted, where you can join in with the locals and aren't just served by them.

'Hidden Figures', Margot Lee Shetterly's book, that tells the 'untold story of the black women mathematicians who helped win the space race' is now released as a film and brings recognition to those who were doubly invisible at NASA--as women and as black women. Making accomplished women scientists visible is important for the accuracy of news and of history. It is also an essential part of building further scientific success. Census data in the United States of America shows that women comprise 39 per cent of chemists and material scientists, and 28 per cent of environmental scientists and geoscientists. These are not the equal proportions that we ultimately want--but they are far higher levels of success in science than fiction tells us. Alarmingly, best-selling movies have tended to significantly underrepresent the facts. A 2015 global study supported by UN Women showed that, of the onscreen characters with an identifiable STEM job, only 12 per cent were women.

Baker’s memo about Blumenstein’s departure caused audible gasps in both the Manhattan headquarters of the Journal and the Washington bureau, Pompeo reports. “[Baker] doesnt have the support of newsroom,” an anonymous Journal editor told Pompeo. “I’ve never worked at a place where the editor in chief didnt have that.” While that may be an overstatementBaker would hardly be the first newsroom general to be scorned by his troops—it sometimes takes an overstatement to make a point.
