I forgot to post this last weekend, my She-Ra cosplay is finished! This week will be too rainy and cold to do a photo shoot so this is the best picture I have. Did anybody see me at Roc Con on Saturday?

New concussion treatments go beyond just resting in a dark room
Doctors find that more active and targeted therapies can produce better recovery.

Concussions are mild traumatic brain injuries that can damage cells, cause chemical imbalances and disrupt the brain’s normal functioning in various ways.

Rest is still the critical primary prescription, especially in the first few days after injury. But increasingly, physicians at concussion clinics, concerned about young people who don’t recover quickly, have been managing patients differently, intervening earlier to pinpoint problems and prescribe targeted therapies.

It’s like physical therapy for the brain. “We don’t treat every stroke patient the same way,” said Jeffrey Bazarian, a physician with the sports concussion program at the University of Rochester Medical Center in New York. “We figure out: Do they have a language problem? Do they have trouble with their eyes? Trouble with their gait?”

Playing your colours right

Blue: Makes the people around you feel at ease. Dark blues are great for interviews and lighter blues for parties and social events.

Red: The colour we associate with passion. Research conducted by the University of Rochester found that men were more attracted to, and turned on by, women who wearing ruby red clothing. Again, this is great for parties – but not always at work.

Purple: This brings out our creativity, and is associated with self confidence, independent thinking and class. Purple is appropriate on almost any occasion.

Black: Conveys authority, so that people see you as being powerful, confident and competent. It is the colour of choice of authority figures (like the police), or for stylists, trend setters and icons.

Orange: This luscious, exuberant colour sends the message that the wearer is friendly, sociable, relaxed, and approachable. It’s great for social events – but not for important business meetings.

Green: This is the colour of happiness and contentment. It can be an instant mood changer, putting others around you at their ease. It is great for all occasions, and can be worn in both the daytime and the evening.

How Real Is Reality?
Reality seems pretty stubborn, pretty fixed — and pretty much independent of whatever is going on in your head. But is it, really? Astrophysicist Adam Frank explores the scientific debate.

A new equation counts how many alien civilizations have ever existed

It’s easy to feel like we’re alone in the universe. But a new paper gives us reason to believe in intelligent life, and probably a shit ton of it. The formula developed by scientists at the University of Rochester works by multiplying the number of habitable planets in the universe and the likelihood of a species rising on one of the planets. The result is pretty damn huge.

According to a study by the University of Rochester, if you put on a blindfold or go to a place that’s completely dark (maybe your workplace has a “make-out” closet?), then wave your hands in front of your face, about half of you should see something like this gif.

No, you don’t have radioactive hands – what’s happening, the researchers say, is that a big part of what we see every day comes not from our eyes, but from what our brain expects to see based on other sensory information. Ah, so you’re just imagining those hand movements, right? Not really: For the experiment, participants were put in a completely dark room with sensors that kept track of their eye movements. It turns out that when you move your hands in the dark, your eyes move exactly the same way they would if you could actually see them. Your sense of sight may be slacking off right now, but you’re still getting signals from other parts of your body, which “create real visual perceptions in the brain.” In simpler terms, you’re fucking Daredevil.
