(Not Much, But One Might Kill You) http://www.medicaldaily.com/whats-difference-between-sociopath-and-psychopath-not-much-one-might-kill-you-270694 “Today, the terms “sociopath” and “psychopath” are used interchangeably — often as a nice way of avoiding “crazy” — yet in recent years the difference between “psychopath” and “sociopath” has become as widely pronounced as the scientific difference between shell shock and post-traumatic stress disorder, which is to say it’s massive.” Psychopaths Might Have an Impaired Empathy Circuit http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/psychopaths-might-have-an-impaired-empathy-circuit/ “When most of us imagine someone in pain, we feel uncomfortable and want to help.” Neurological basis for lack of empathy in psychopaths http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/09/130924174331.htm “When individuals with psychopathy imagine others in pain, brain areas necessary for feeling empathy and concern for others fail to become active and be connected to other important regions involved in affective processing and decision-making, reports a new study.” Psychopaths' brains wired to seek rewards, no matter the consequences http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100314150924.htm “The brains of psychopaths appear to be wired to keep seeking a reward at any cost, new research finds. The research uncovers the role of the brain's reward system in psychopathy and opens a new area of study for understanding what drives these individuals.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Lithium-Ion Battery Inventor Introduces Fast-Charging, Noncombustible Batteries http://engr.utexas.edu/news/8203-goodenough-batteries "A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage." BU-204: How do Lithium Batteries Work? http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/lithium_based_batteries "Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight. Rechargeable batteries with lithium metal on the anode could provide extraordinarily high energy densities; however, it was discovered in the mid-1980s that cycling produced unwanted dendrites on the anode. These growth particles penetrate the separator and cause an electrical short. The cell temperature would rise quickly and approach the melting point of lithium, causing thermal runaway, also known as 'venting with flame.'" Has lithium-battery genius John Goodenough done it again? Colleagues are skeptical https://qz.com/929794/has-lithium-battery-genius-john-goodenough-done-it-again-colleagues-are-skeptical/ "Researchers have struggled for decades to safely use powerful-but flammable-lithium metal in a battery. Now John Goodenough, the 94-year-old father of the lithium-ion battery, is claiming a novel solution as a blockbuster advance. If it proves out, the invention could allow electric cars to compete with conventional vehicles on sticker price. The improbable solution, described in a new paper from Goodenough and three co-authors, has drawn intense interest from leading science and technology publications." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.

A team of American particle physicists, building on some Hungarian work, announced the "possible discovery" of a fifth fundamental force of nature. If true, this is massive. But peer a bit closer, and the claim appears to be built on some shaky foundations. Here's what you need to know." Evidence Of A 'Fifth Force' Faces Scrutiny https://www.quantamagazine.org/20160607-new-boson-claim-faces-scrutiny/ "Last year, a team of nuclear physicists in Hungary observed an anomaly in the decays of excited beryllium-8 atoms - an unexpected preference for spitting out pairs of particles with a particular angle of separation. The bump in the physicists' data was unmistakable, with odds of less than one in 100 billion of arising by chance. Reporting the anomaly in Physical Review Letters in January, the researchers argued that it could signify the existence of a new fundamental particle. But at first, few took notice." The Standard Model https://home.cern/about/physics/standard-model "The theories and discoveries of thousands of physicists since the 1930s have resulted in a remarkable insight into the fundamental structure of matter: everything in the universe is found to be made from a few basic building blocks called fundamental particles, governed by four fundamental forces. Our best understanding of how these particles and three of the forces are related to each other is encapsulated in the Standard Model of particle physics. Developed in the early 1970s, it has successfully explained almost all experimental results and precisely predicted a wide variety of phenomena. Over time and through many experiments, the Standard Model has become established as a well-tested physics theory." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

There's A New Form Of Matter That Exists In Four Dimensions!

Being first theorized in 2012, time crystals have been created in the lab! How were two separate teams of scientists able to make this new form of matter a reality? How Quantum Computing Will Change The World! - https://youtu.be/3BKIJCTLy-s Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Scientists have confirmed a brand new phase of matter: time crystals http://www.sciencealert.com/scientists-have-just-announced-a-brand-new-form-of-matter-time-crystals "Now it's official - researchers have just reported in detail how to make and measure these bizarre crystals. And two independent teams of scientists claim they've actually created time crystals in the lab based off this blueprint, confirming the existence of an entirely new phase of matter. The discovery might sound pretty abstract, but it heralds in a whole new era in physics - for decades we've been studying matter that's defined as being 'in equilibrium', such as metals and insulators." Physicists Create World's First Time Crystal https://www.technologyreview.com/s/602541/physicists-create-worlds-first-time-crystal/ "Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Chris Monroe at the University of Maryland in College Park and a few pals, who have created a time crystal in their laboratory for the first time. The basic process for making time crystals is straightforward. The idea is to create a quantum system, such as a group of ions arranged in a ring, and cool them until they are in their lowest energy state. In these circumstances, the laws of physics would suggest that the ring should be perfectly stationary." Viewpoint: How to Create a Time Crystal http://physics.aps.org/articles/v10/5 "The story of time crystals-whose lowest-energy configurations are periodic in time rather than space-epitomizes the creative ideas, controversy, and vigorous discussion that lie at the core of the scientific process. Originally theorized by Frank Wilczek in 2012, time crystals were met with widespread attention, but also a healthy dose of skepticism. This ignited a debate in the literature, culminating in a proof that time crystals cannot exist in thermal equilibrium, as originally imagined by Wilczek. But the tale did not end there." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Their method is simple: Fill a chamber with acetylene or ethylene gas and oxygen. Use a vehicle spark plug to create a contained detonation. Collect the graphene that forms afterward." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

A Lucky Lab Accident Results in Bucketloads of Graphene https://www.seeker.com/a-lucky-lab-accident-results-in-bucketloads-of-graphene-2230364207.html Apparently, when it comes to making graphene, the 21st-century 'miracle material' taking manufacturing by storm, you can do things the hard way or the fun way. The hard ways - and there are dozens - all have their own complications. Some require high temperatures and long 'cooking' times, others require the use of hazardous chemicals like sulfuric acid or hydrazine. The easy way comes from physicists at Kansas State University, and the process is admirably straightforward: Fill a steel containment unit with oxygen and hydrocarbon gas, detonate it with the spark and, voila, a bucketload of soot-like graphene. Scrape it out and repeat.

The finding may help to explain how the brain creates consciousness." Consciousness https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/consciousness/ "Perhaps no aspect of mind is more familiar or more puzzling than consciousness and our conscious experience of self and world. The problem of consciousness is arguably the central issue in current theorizing about the mind. Despite the lack of any agreed upon theory of consciousness, there is a widespread, if less than universal, consensus that an adequate account of mind requires a clear understanding of it and its place in nature."

Its anatomy is quite remarkable in that it receives input from almost all regions of cortex and projects back to almost all regions of cortex." ____________________ Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
