Rob and Katie Penn are hoping to give parents-to-be an image of what their newborn will look like before he or she arrives. The couple have opened New Bern Baby View, which will offer 3D, 4D and HD ultrasounds to expecting parents. They are the only office in New Bern providing this service. The closest office to New Bern to offer these types of ultrasounds is in Jacksonville.
Experts have taken another look at 220-million-year-old footprints found in a coal mine in Ipswich, Australia in the 1960s – and concluded that they belong to a timid, long-necked herbivore rather than a bigger, raptor-like carnivore, as was originally thought. The updated assessment was made possible by a more detailed analysis of the original footprints – including their spacing and orientation – as well as comparisons with footprints from other dinosaur species. Rather than being a fearsome Triassic predator, the creature would have been a smaller and less aggressive plant eater, the researchers concluded. However, it's still not clear exactly which species...
So that's why my eyebrows were figuratively raised when I beheld Arsham's new Kohler partnership, the 3D-printed Rock.01 sink. It's an appreciably modernized take on Arsham's archeological interests, with clean lines and organic textures in place of man-made cracks and minerals. According to Kohler, each Rock.01 sink, made of layered...

NME gave ‘Screen Violence’ four stars...
One thing you should know about me is that no matter how much praise and enthusiasm I may heap upon a work of art, I will try to avoid labeling it as a “masterpiece” without good cause. To me, a true masterpiece is an incredibly rare treasure that defies artistic analysis, transcending our restrictive standards of beauty and resonating with powerful messages that we can’t begin to articulate. They cut right through our walls of cynicism and ego to strike the core of our humanity, and no matter how many times we observe these pieces, they always awaken in us that sense of pure wonder and deep fulfillment. The Little Prince is a masterpiece. Spirited Away is a masterpiece. And, if I may be so bold, Majora’s Mask is most definitely a masterpiece.
Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan says the city will begin to use brine instead of salt crystals to melt snow and ice, which she says will save the city money and is better for the environment. Localities across the country have been moving away from road salt, which can damage roads...

Motion cues from the background influence associative color learning of honey bees in a virtual-reality scenario
Honey bees exhibit remarkable visual learning capacities, which can be studied using virtual reality (VR) landscapes in laboratory conditions. Existing VR environments for bees are imperfect as they provide either open-loop conditions or 2D displays. Here we achieved a true 3D environment in which walking bees learned to discriminate a rewarded from a punished virtual stimulus based on color differences. We included ventral or frontal background cues, which were also subjected to 3D updating based on the bee movements. We thus studied if and how the presence of such motion cues affected visual discrimination in our VR landscape. Our results showed that the presence of frontal, and to a lesser extent, of ventral background motion cues impaired the bees' performance. Whenever these cues were suppressed, color discrimination learning became possible. We analyzed the specific contribution of foreground and background cues and discussed the role of attentional interference and differences in stimulus salience in the VR environment to account for these results. Overall, we show how background and target cues may interact at the perceptual level and influence associative learning in bees. In addition, we identify issues that may affect decision-making in VR landscapes, which require specific control by experimenters.
