Device offers promise of no brain tumor left behind

Ji-Xin of Prude University has purposed a new and effective detection method of brain tumors using stimulated Raman scattering microscopy.  Detection of tumor boundaries precisely is really a hard problem.  Using this technique one can detect the tumor in real time without any biopsy.

Poverty a curse?

Researchers from Harvard got some evidence that poverty impedes cognitive function.  The abstract  of the article : “The poor often behave in less capable ways, which can further perpetuate poverty. We hypothesize that poverty directly impedes cognitive function and present two studies that test this hypothesis. First, we experimentally induced thoughts about finances and found that this reduces cognitive performance among poor but not in well-off participants. Second, we examined the cognitive function of farmers over the planting cycle. We found that the same farmer shows diminished cognitive performance before harvest, when poor, as compared with after harvest, when rich. This cannot be explained by differences in time available, nutrition, or work effort. Nor can it be explained with stress: Although farmers do show more stress before harvest, that does not account for diminished cognitive performance. Instead, it appears that poverty itself reduces cognitive capacity. We suggest that this is because poverty-related concerns consume mental resources, leaving less for other tasks. These data provide a previously unexamined perspective and help explain a spectrum of behaviors among the poor. We discuss some implications for poverty policy.

Recipe of success

I always wonder is there any recipe of success.  I don’t know. But successful people may have some recipe.  I read what the successful people said about success.  Well still was confused.  Then I watched this TED video on facebook which one of my friend shared.

Richard St. John presented eight secrets of successful life.  It is a very good presentation and he spend seven years to research this and conducted 500 interviews.  He presented the eight main things that is needed to succeed.  In the order they are

  1. PASSION
  2. Hard WORK
  3. Be GOOD at your work
  4. FOCUS
  5. PUSH
  6. SERVE
  7. IDEAS
  8. PERSIST

Here is the three minutes movie. Its worth spending three minutes.
