i guess i misunderstood what backup my photos to icloud would do. i thought it would back up my photos to icloud. apparently not.i also misunderstood what dropbox would do. apparently it was waiting for some magic symbol from me to back up my pictures to dropbox. no pictures of the babies after february except what i sent people-not full size
i'm just stupid. i thought there was like this cloud where my stuff would sit. but no. it's just another way to sync with a pc or whatever. sigh. i should have looked. - Christina Pikas
That confused me at first, too. I initially thought it would be a backup location. That's too bad that you lost photos. - Katy S
Oh, what a bummer. - Kirsten
Oh, Christina, I'm so sorry! - laura x from BuddyFeed
oh christina, I'm sorry. what a rotten way to find out. icloud and backup cloud stuff confuses me too. *spits on technology a few times* - Heather Piwowar
craps. I thought that dropbox allowed you to reccover deleted files? I thought I had done that before by logging into the site... - Kubke
Dropbox will transfer a few photos at at time only when you open the app so there's a new setting that will make it launch itself and transfer a few energy time you change location. Weird. So all mine never transferred. - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Oh no. That sucks. I need to thank you as I just copied all photos from 2000 on to Dropbox thinking it was a better backup than my external hard drive. - Jen
i should be more clear - once you actually get stuff into dropbox it's fine... I thought telling dropbox i wanted my stuff to go there was enough but it wasn't... i needed to open the app for it to transfer and i don't open that app on a regular basis. - Christina Pikas
My photos are copied automatically to Dropbox all the time - I never have to open the app... - Björn Brembs
i turned on the feature (now) that uploads every time you change location... so the backlog is slowly decreasing. - Christina Pikas

Long-Range Temporal Correlations in Resting-State Alpha Oscillations Predict Human Timing-Error Dynamics - http://www.citeulike.org/user...
The Journal of Neuroscience, Vol. 33, No. 27. (03 July 2013), pp. 11212-11220, doi:10.1523/jneurosci.2816-12.2013 Human behavior is imperfect. This is notably clear during repetitive tasks in which sequences of errors or deviations from perfect performance result. These errors are not random, but show patterned fluctuations with long-range temporal correlations that are well described using power-law spectra P(f)∝1/fβ, where β is the power-law scaling exponent describing the decay in temporal correlations. The neural basis of temporal correlations in such behaviors is not known. Interestingly, long-range temporal correlations are a hallmark of amplitude fluctuations in resting-state neuronal oscillations. Here, we investigated whether the temporal dynamics in brain and behavior are related. Thirty-nine subjects' eyes-open rest EEG was measured. Next, subjects reproduced without feedback a 1 s interval by tapping with their right index finger. In line with previous reports, we found... - Björn Brembs

Some may have noticed the post I did last week on OA resources for Canada (http://scienceblogs.com/confess...). For the next iteration I'd like to include some key non-Canadian documents/mandates/reports/etc. for context. I know already Finch/Harvard/OSTP/CHORUS/SHARE...
But was hoping for some additional suggestions, particularly non-North American/British. Thanks! - John Dupuis
maybe marlene could help? I know the EU has been pumping out documents right and left; I ethnocentrically confess I've been ignoring them. - RepoRat
Australia is doing some stuff, for example, http://aoasg.org.au/2013... - Joe
Thanks, Joe. RR, good idea to ask Marlene -- I've been ignoring most of the world for the most part too. An info overload survival strategy, to be sure, but a limiting one nonetheless. - John Dupuis
Too true. - RepoRat
UNESCO has a Global Open Access Portal: http://www.unesco.org/new... - John Dupuis
During Berlin 10 I remember a lot of links coming out about OA in Africa and Brazil aaaaand Hong Kong? - jambina from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks for the suggestions everyone! - John Dupuis

When did you first hear of global warming/climate change?
1990...? Most likely because of Captain Planet. - Julian
Early '90s - Jed from iPhone
Sometime in the 90s, but I didn't really appreciate what was going on until later. - John (bird whisperer)
uh... it's been part of my mental furniture for so long I honestly have no idea? But the intro-to-meteorology class I took freshman year of undergrad is an odds-on bet; that would have been 1991. - RepoRat
I was chairperson for Earth Day at my school in 1971. :) - LoisMarketing
I learned about the greenhouse effect in a 4th grade science class, so 1985-86. - laura x
sometime in 1978. - Big Joe Silence
Probably in the 1980's and probably from tv (news programs? I thought school at first, but now I can't see how that would have happened), though in my mind, it was conflated with the hole in the ozone layer. I wish I had been taught more about atmospheric stuff as a kid, it's so fascinating. - Meg VMeg
no idea. like RepoRat states, it has always been there. - royce
You know what? Now I know. It wasn't undergrad; it was an oddball oceanography elective taught by an eccentric (in the best sense!) Ph.D who had done fieldwork via SCUBA all over hell's half acre. That was... 1985ish. Also introduced me to plate tectonics (tsunami!). - RepoRat
I don't recall there being a point where I didn't know about it. - Soup in a TARDIS
'80s. Environmental science class. It's actually possible I heard about it even in the '70s. I don't exactly remember. - Spidra Webster
When was the Rio summit? We had a big thing going in school before that.... We were going to save the rainforest, one leaf at a time! ETA Wikipedia says 1992. - Heleninstitches
I'm a lot like RR, except I think I knew about stuff like the ozone layer and the rainforest and acid rain and save the whales before I knew about actual global climate change. - Catherine Pellegrino
I learned about the greenhouse effect in the 80s before the term global warming came into common use. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
My experience is similar to Catherine's: while growing up I learned more about other environmental issues like CFCs and plastic pollution. - John (bird whisperer)
In the '80s there was a thing in the British education system called "combined science." It was an experiment in continuity, whereby a class had one science teacher for the two-year period leading to GCSE exams, and that teacher would teach all the sciences (with occasional switches to more specialised teachers in certain areas) in the same time previously allotted to any one of the... more... - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
In the mid-80s; Earth Day in elementary school was a major thing. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
1989/1990 - took a meteorology class and recall lectures from at least faculty member on topic (anti-global warming, as I recall); I remember acid rain and river pollution were earlier (mid-1970's to 1980's) but don't remember global warming being specifically mentioned or discussed. It was more related to industrial pollution and dumping chemicals into the water supply. - Elizabeth Brown
1991-92 - I fell in with Earth Day celebrations in Windsor, ON. I think, because of the industry down that way, the green movement possessed a kind of specialized knowledge. - Brent Schaus
In the early 80s. Lots of greenpeace activists around, plus greenham common, the threat of nuclear war etc. made me very conscious. And watching so many wildlife programs where habitat threat was a big thing. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Early 90's. But, the concept of global warming being caused by humans has less of a time stamp. The first major paper to point this out came out in 1992. Edit to an open version, http://www.ecd.bnl.gov/steve... There were other earlier papers (such as this from 1990, http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi...), but I think that the 1992 science paper is the research that got the bulk of the attention. - Joe
Don't remember. I was too busy worrying about the nuclear holocaust - maʀtha from Android
Global what now? - Steele Lawman
early 90's. - imabonehead
sometime in the 1990s - Björn Brembs

Robust timing and motor patterns by taming chaos in recurrent neural networks - http://www.citeulike.org/user...
Nat Neurosci, Vol. 16, No. 7. (26 July 2013), pp. 925-933, doi:10.1038/nn.3405 The brain's ability to tell time and produce complex spatiotemporal motor patterns is critical for anticipating the next ring of a telephone or playing a musical instrument. One class of models proposes that these abilities emerge from dynamically changing patterns of neural activity generated in recurrent neural networks. However, the relevant dynamic regimes of recurrent networks are highly sensitive to noise; that is, chaotic. We developed a firing rate model that tells time on the order of seconds and generates complex spatiotemporal patterns in the presence of high levels of noise. This is achieved through the tuning of the recurrent connections. The network operates in a dynamic regime that exhibits coexisting chaotic and locally stable trajectories. These stable patterns function as 'dynamic attractors' and provide a feature that is characteristic of biological systems: the ability to 'return' to the... - Björn Brembs

Spontaneous Brain Activity Predicts Learning Ability of Foreign Sounds - http://www.citeulike.org/user...
The Journal of Neuroscience, Vol. 33, No. 22. (29 May 2013), pp. 9295-9305, doi:10.1523/jneurosci.4655-12.2013 Can learning capacity of the human brain be predicted from initial spontaneous functional connectivity (FC) between brain areas involved in a task? We combined task-related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and resting-state fMRI (rs-fMRI) before and after training with a Hindi dental–retroflex nonnative contrast. Previous fMRI results were replicated, demonstrating that this learning recruited the left insula/frontal operculum and the left superior parietal lobe, among other areas of the brain. Crucially, resting-state FC (rs-FC) between these two areas at pretraining predicted individual differences in learning outcomes after distributed (Experiment 1) and intensive training (Experiment 2). Furthermore, this rs-FC was reduced at posttraining, a change that may also account for learning. Finally, resting-state network analyses showed that the mechanism underlying... - Björn Brembs

Deep Homology of Arthropod Central Complex and Vertebrate Basal Ganglia - http://www.citeulike.org/user...
Science, Vol. 340, No. 6129. (12 April 2013), pp. 157-161, doi:10.1126/science.1231828 Similarities of brain structure, function, and behavior are usually ascribed to convergent evolution. In their review, Strausfeld and Hirth (p. 157) identify multiple commonalities shared by vertebrate basal ganglia and a system of forebrain centers in arthropods called the central complex. The authors conclude that circuits essential to behavioral choice originated very early across phyla. Nicholas Strausfeld, Frank Hirth - Björn Brembs

Top-Down Regulation of Default Mode Activity in Spatial Visual Attention - http://www.citeulike.org/user...
The Journal of Neuroscience, Vol. 33, No. 15. (10 April 2013), pp. 6444-6453, doi:10.1523/jneurosci.4939-12.2013 Dorsal anterior cingulate and bilateral anterior insula form a task control network (TCN) whose primary function includes initiating and maintaining task-level cognitive set and exerting top-down regulation of sensorimotor processing. The default mode network (DMN), comprising an anatomically distinct set of cortical areas, mediates introspection and self-referential processes. Resting-state data show that TCN and DMN interact. The functional ramifications of their interaction remain elusive. Recording fMRI data from human subjects performing a visual spatial attention task and correlating Granger causal influences with behavioral performance and blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) activity we report three main findings. First, causal influences from TCN to DMN, i.e., TCN → DMN, are positively correlated with behavioral performance. Second, causal influences from DMN to... - Björn Brembs
