Hey! It's Tern Tuesday and I've got a fun one today!! How many species of tern can you find in this photo. I will post again tomorrow night with a zoomed in photo and identification of each species that I have spotted!! It's July and many of our terns are fledged and staging. A staging area is defined as an area where migratory birds rest and feed. .
In an article titled Stopping vs. staging: the difference between a hop and a jump. Nils Warnock proposes 'that sites with abundant, predictable food resources where birds prepare for an energetic challenge (usually a long flight over a barrier such as an ocean or a desert) requiring substantial fuel stores and physiological changes without which significant fitness costs are incurred are most appropriately described as staging sites.'

Artificial intelligence(AI) is a computer or a machine that does stuffs, which requires human intelligence. Anything from translations, perceptions to decisions makings. It is way better at predicting behaviours and patterns than a human mind ever can. .
I'm typing these words in a "smart" phone. Anyone who tries a little, will find my exact location. I have few alarms, a couple of reminders, few videos and countless selfies. It autocorrects me. The phone knows my every online history from bank details, my social connections, passwords, sunny Leone to Mia khalifa. A smart phone knows you better than anyone else. Isn't your phone an AI?
I shop at asda retailer, in a small town. There are at least 20 self checkouts. While I am typing this, a friend of mine is telling me about philip's sucide case; mostly to do with him being jobless. In a small town, shits taken over 100s of jobs from people. Imagine that in a bigger scale. errything started with our convenience but it's now working against us. .
The pace the science and tech is blooming, who knows what we gon come up with. Machine washes, dries, cooks, drives, cleans n even gives you pleasure. Only thing it lacks is "conciousness". Think about all the nukes n arms disposes. Now imagine them with conciousness. What chance do we stand against them? What's chance to a guarantee? You know they talking bout adding concious to these machines/robots, right? .
I mean AI doesn't even have to do shit. If all the AI decided to do a lil prank n shut down for few secs/mins...the Hollywood horror flicks will quickly unfold into right in front yo eyes Automobiles crashing, planes falling down, nukes going off blah blah...the biggest fear? No internet.One thing's for sure though; if we succeed in building/transformaing the conciousness, we'd be immortal. Question is, would it be ethical?
“To be completely honest, I had a difficult start to my undergraduate degree in neuroscience; probably because I was constantly thinking that everyone hated me (even for no real reason). It takes some practice and effort to get out of a closed-mind state and open yourself up to the different, new experiences that university has to offer. Since neuroscience is a very small program with around 30 people admitted per year, this may be daunting and give the impression that you need to outshine, compete, or prove your worth to your classmates. The important thing to remember is that everyone is in the same boat, experiencing all these new things together. My grades and academic experience exponentially improved after I took a step back, stopped worrying about making university the greatest experience of my life, and just let it happen. Push yourself out of your comfort zone to join new clubs, become a part of committees, volunteer around campus and learn about the different resources present on campus. But most of all, know your limits and recognize when you need help. The number one resource I would love all first years to know is the Wellness Centre counselling program. Whether you are dealing with procrastination, overwhelming feelings, or even an actual mental illness, they can be very beneficial to help you through such times. While your first two years in neuroscience may be very general courses, they definitely help in building a good foundation to understand things in third year. Remember to always ask upper-years questions when you are uncertain. Also, this program is very research-based which came as a surprise to me initially. Get a head start by working in a lab over your first summer! It may give you a head start in understanding material for your other neuro courses! Ultimately, reach out for help and don’t worry about the little things!“

¿Porqué las bombillas se calientan?💡👀
Bueno, respondiendo una duda de una de mis seguidoras @whitebears_dash
Esto claramente ocurre cuando la energía calórica desprendida por los electrones se mueve por un circuito y choca con otras partículas provocando que efectivamente estas se calienten.
Interesante¿ no? 💡

Did anybody else know that seagulls are this protective of their young? This week we've seen these parents fight off blue herons and ravens and raise the alarm as 2 golden eagles came around. It's easy to forget that seagulls are actual animals and not just beach pests.
Also, today was beautiful.
Ideas for plastic free July.
Bring a reusable water bottle with you everywhere you go to avoid buying bottled water. Leave it filled up in your handbag, next to your wallet, or in the car.
Please note that not all Voss water bottles are made of glass. Some are made from plastic. You will have to check before purchasing it. The one in this picture is made of glass. It was found when ordering sparkling water while dining out and was taken home to be reused. You can also purchase stainless steel water bottles if you wish.
Say “no” to any kind of plastic packaging. If you don’t buy it, they won’t sell it. Demand environmentally friendly packaging by not purchasing anything wrapped in plastic, and sellers will have to supply it or they won’t make any money.

Happy tiny tufts Tuesday! Check out this awesome zone of inhibition 🙀 Clearly the wee fungal colony is producing a compound that is preventing the mega fungal colony from overrunning it. I don’t know what the compound is... any guesses?? So cool!!
Stripes of Clay 💧🌋✨
128 meters of pure power, falling down colorful lava cliffs. The red lines are natural red clay pressed between tertiary lava strata. Truly one of the best views of East Iceland.

#HubbleClassic This stunning view of M101, also known as the Pinwheel galaxy, is one of the largest images Hubble has ever captured of a spiral galaxy. Assembled from 51 exposures taken during various studies over nearly ten years, this infrared and visible-light image measures 16,000 by 12,000 pixels. Ground-based images were used to fill in the portions of the galaxy that Hubble did not observe.
The giant spiral disk of stars, dust and gas is 170,000 light-years across — nearly twice the diameter of our galaxy, the Milky Way. M101 is estimated to contain at least one trillion stars. The galaxy’s spiral arms are sprinkled with large regions of star-forming nebulas. These nebulas are areas of intense star formation within giant molecular hydrogen clouds. Brilliant, young clusters of hot, blue, newborn stars trace out the spiral arms.

⚠️Write your answers in a comment below⚠️ The Cognitive Reflection Test (CRT) was developed by psychologist Shane Frederick in 2005. In a paper published in The Journal of Economic Perspectives, Frederick explains that he picked the three questions for the CRT because they were all "found to yield impulsive erroneous responses." That is, the questions make it easy for people to quickly jump to conclusions, instead of closely analyzing the seemingly simple quiz items.

One of the many endemic hummingbird species that call the Chocó home. Hummingbirds and flowers have co-evolved with each other, many species of flowers and hummingbirds have evolved to mutually benefit each other, hummingbirds with their bill size and feeding techniques and flowers with the specialized ways to allow Hummingbirds cross-pollinate.
