A new study offers extraordinary findings.

You want the best for your kids. Even if they don’t deserve it. The world has become an ever more traumatized place, so you feel you should do ever more to give them a helping hand.

Though it surely stops before you pay a fixer $500,000 for them to go to USC. I want to help you for free, oh traumatized parent.

So I’ve just found a fascinating piece of research that might be a good guide, should you want your children to be good at the basics.

The 12 most dangerous superbugs, ranked by the WHO

 

The World Health Organization says we need to step up the fight against a dozen bacteria that are growing resistant to all the antibiotics we have to treat them.

One of the scariest features of the antibiotic resistance crisis — which has been accelerated by how we overuse these drugs — is that pharmaceutical companies aren’t developing new antibiotics quickly enough. They also often place profits ahead public health when choosing which drugs to develop.

Australian engineers prove quantum computer coding in silicon now possible

quantumcompu

Engineers in Australia have have proven, with the highest score ever achieved, that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes lingering doubts that such operations can be made reliably enough to allow powerful quantum computers to become a reality.

Oregon State University researchers have discovered a new link between cognitive functioning and gut bacteria.  In recent years the science involving bacteria in the gut and its link to health and cognitive functioning has boomed.  Parkinson’s disease has even been linked to changes in gut bacteria.  Published in the journal Neuroscience, a new study shows that diets high in fat and sugar are probably impacting cognitive functioning, because of their impact on the type of bacteria that thrive on high-fat and high-sugar diets.   Continue reading… “Amazing connection between gut bacteria and cognitive functioning”
