    People who grew up in rural areas have better sense of direction than those raised in cities, particularly cities with grid-pattern streets, a new study says. Researchers say it may be because the countryside has more disorderly road layouts, which effectively primes the brain for remembering and navigating environments.  The scientists from France and London tested nearly 400,000 people from 38 countries on their spatial navigation, using a video game called Sea Hero Quest. The mobile game, designed to help research into dementia, involves directing a virtual boat around certain routes that players have had to memorise.   The authors found that individuals who grew up in more structured, grid-like cities, such as Chicago, performed better on game levels with a similar grid-like layout.  However, those who grew up outside of cities (or in cities with less grid-like and more sprawling and complex layouts) were better at navigating such routes.  Researchers say the ability to follow more disorderly routes (like roads in Prague or London) is a sign of better spatial navigation.  This image shows 1,000 random trajectories in Chicago (a 'griddy' city, featuring...

    New Orleans Saints receiver Ty Montgomery suffered a brutal injury Sunday against the Titans. While attempting to catch a pass during the 23-21 losing effort, Montgomery’s finger was bent the completely wrong direction. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) You can watch a video of the play below, but be warned that it will likely make your stomach very uneasy. Ty Montgomery finger going the wrong way pic.twitter.com/aNrUWF1nc0 — ThatsGoodSports (@BrandonPerna) November 14, 2021 For some reason, this injury isn’t getting very much attention online at all. I didn’t even see it until this morning. That’s pretty damn shocking to me because it’s an absolutely disgusting injury to me. Look at his finger! #saints Ty Montgomery (finger) is questionable — James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) November 14, 2021 It’s bent in the wrong direction, and it’s not like it’s just barely bent in the wrong direction. It looks mangled. It looks like the kind of finger injury that is going to require serious medical attention. I feel like I want to get sick just...
    MTV/Instagram Johnny Bananas Love him or hate him, Johnny “Bananas” Devenanzio is an integral part of “The Challenge” world and he’s played an important role in helping the show grow over the years despite his absence the last couple of seasons. Even though he’s off our screens for the time being, he’s been very vocal about season 37 and offered his perspective — and constructive criticisms — on the show’s direction. Bananas, who now hosts the “Death, Taxes and Bananas” podcast breaking down “Spies, Lies and Allies,” has been critical of the current season but told E! News that he’s providing “constructive criticism.” He said he loves “The Challenge” and it’s a major part of his life so he wants to see it continue to be successful for a long time. “I grew up on this show and I spent my twenties and now the majority of my thirties, some of the best years of my life, on this show,” he told the outlet in an exclusive interview. “I’ve spilled so much blood and tears into the show...
    Precision agriculture is part of the broader Climate-Smart Agriculture (CSA) approach to farming that international institutions like the UN  are promoting as a way to produce food amid the climate crisis. A recent study illustrated well just how precise precision agriculture can be. Researchers successfully inserted microneedle-based sensors into plants to assess their health without appearing to irreparably damage them. However, there are many critics of precision agriculture and the CSA umbrella it sits under. These critiques essentially rest on the argument that, when it comes to human ‘progress,’ CSA is taking us in the wrong direction. Nature through a tech lens As the Anthropocene has explained, precision agriculture is “a field of research and technological development that aims to gather as much data as possible on the optimal growing conditions for plants.” People can gather this data through drones, sensors in the soil, or, in the case of the researchers from the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), inserting minuscule needle sensors into plants. In short, it’s an approach whereby people perceive and deal with nature...
    The Yankees are trending up after successful road trip: ‘We are moving in the right direction’ Andres Chavez April 30, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditDespite a disheartening loss to the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on Tursday’s series finale, in which the home team took advantage of the extra-inning rule that puts a runner on second base, the New York Yankees look like a different team than the one who recently had a five-game losing streak. The Yankees went 5-3 on their eight-game trip, starting pitchers that began the year being battered are now finding their stride (most notably Corey Kluber and Domingo German), the relief corps have performed admirably, and the offense, slowly but surely, is heating up. “Obviously, when you go out on a road trip and have a winning record like that, certainly that’s good,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone told Betelhem Ashame of MLB.com. “But we also know that there’s a game or two that — one thing here, one thing there — all of a sudden, it’s a special trip. So I...
    NIALL Horan has said that he "felt like a prisoner" in One Direction, with the band achieving worldwide success after shooting to fame on The X Factor in 2010. The 27-year-old star was just 16 when Simon Cowell and co. put him in the band alongside Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson, and Liam Payne. 6Niall has spoken out after finding fame in One DirectionCredit: PA Zayn sensationally quit the group in March 2015, and the rest of the band went on an extended hiatus the following year. All five members have since launched successful solo careers, including Niall - who much prefers his current pace of life to the one he forged in 1D. Appearing on Dermot O'Leary's podcast People, Just People, Niall was asked if he ever felt like a "prisoner" during the height of the band's fame. The Irish hunk replied: "A couple of times, yeah, because we were 17, 18, 19 for the first few years, and I struggled with it. 6He was just 16 when he shot to fameCredit: ITV 6The band enjoyed global domination...
    A Texas grocery stores apparent act of kindness sets off a chain reaction of positivity in the wake of the deadly storm Piers Morgan to leave Good Morning Britain after 41,000 complaints over Meghan remarks PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – We’ve all been there. It was the bad golf talking. © Provided by Golf Channel Or maybe it was a few weeks of inconsistent golf that led Rory McIlroy to turn some heads on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational following another disappointing finish. In the heat of the moment the Northern Irishman acknowledged he was “a little dejected” and that, “I don't know, maybe looking to go in a different direction,” he said. Comments like that normally lead to predictable outcomes – new swing coaches, new caddies, new equipment. But when it comes to the endless search for answers the world No. 11 – to add insult to injury he also dropped out of the top 10 for the first time since 2018 – wasn’t so much laying the groundwork for wholesale change so much as he was...
    Jessica Watkins (left) and Donavan Crowl, both military veterans, are in custody in Ohio An Oath Keepers leader who joined the Capitol riot was 'awaiting direction' from Donald Trump and 'trained and plotted for a moment like this', prosecutors say.  Jessica Watkins, 38, of Champaign County, Ohio, is charged with counts including conspiracy, conspiracy to hurt an officer, violent entry, obstruction of official business and destruction of government property. Prosecutors say: 'As the inauguration grew nearer, [Jessica] Watkins indicated that she was awaiting direction from President Trump.'  They also allege: Her concern about taking action without his backing was evident in a November 9, 2020, text in which she stated, 'I am concerned this is an elaborate trap. Unless the POTUS himself activates us, it's not legit. The POTUS has the right to activate units too. If Trump asks me to come, I will. Otherwise, I can't trust it.'  'Watkins had perceived her desired signal by the end of December', the Justice Department adds, alleging: 'Unlike the vast majority, Watkins had trained and plotted for a moment like this.'       The...
    Follow the money. Always follow the money. When I was a kid, my dad occasionally took me to Aqueduct, where one day we hung out downstairs — near the rail and the railbirds of all financial standing, barons to bums. I wanted to see the one jockey I knew of, the great Angel Cordero, ride from close up. In Cordero’s first race, his mount finished out of the money, and as he and his horse headed back I couldn’t believe the hateful words being hollered at him well within earshot, from, “You bleepin’ monkey man!” to, “You’re a bleepin’ thief!” I was stunned, upset. Why? My dad explained that those men had bet on Cordero and had lost their money. Four or five minutes earlier, he further explained, they thought so much of Cordero they bet on him; now they despised him. It was then I learned to follow the money. Thursday, during the first round of the first COVID Masters, a CBS/ESPN telecast, players who finished were interviewed, all of them asked to describe what it was like to...
    During most of his press conferences since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor Jared Polis has shied away from vigorously bashing President Donald Trump, choosing instead to offer subtler criticism of the current administration's response to the virus and apparent lack of a national strategy to combat it. But his virtual session on October 6 was different. This time around, Polis ripped Trump, who has shrugged off having the virus on Twitter and taken part in media events that have disturbed public health experts, accusing him of irresponsibility that could lead to greater problems in Colorado should too many residents follow his example. "It's challenging to watch how the White House is handling this on a personal level," Polis maintained. "Like a lot of things, the President is taking this in a wrong and divisive direction with regard to his counsel and what he's advising people to do." When Trump encourages individuals not to be afraid of the novel coronavirus, Polis continued, "You've heard me say very similar things. Of course it's not time for fear. But that doesn't...
    ONE Direction fans have gone into overdrive after Louis Tomlinson liked Zayn Malik's baby announcement - while the rest of the band seem to have ignored it. The singer, 27, announced the happy news earlier today that his girlfriend Gigi Hadid finally welcomed their baby daughter into the world. 9One Direction fans have gone into a frenzy after Louis Tomlinson liked Zayn Malik's post about his new baby girlCredit: Getty Images - Getty The Bradford born star marked the special occasion with an adorable snap of the tot gripping his finger in black and white.

    Getty Cory Undlin with the Eagles. The Detroit Lions selected Jeff Okudah with the No. 3 pick with designs of him playing a big immediate role for the team. How close is that role to playing out? Probably a little ways off still, but regardless, the talent has been evident early on in camp for Lions defensive coordinator Cory Undlin. Speaking with the media over the weekend, Undlin was asked about Okudah’s trajectory. As he said, he has started slow, but the rookie hasn’t been on the field a ton for the team either. Undlin said: “He’s a rookie and he missed a couple practices there early in camp. He’s really been on the grass 7 times. For me myself, I got to keep the perspective where it should be. Without OTA’s, and I know you can meet on Zoom and we spent all that time on those Zoom meetings, it’s not the same. When it starts and it’s live, there’s an adjustment that’s got to take place. Not to mention the running around with the wideouts we...
    For the past few days, there’s been some talk of a former Republican congressman endorsing Joe Biden during the DNC convention. And on CNN Wednesday, that former congressman was revealed at Charlie Dent. It’s not really a huge surprise, given how critical Dent has been of the president in the past few years. Back in 2017, when Dent said he would be retiring from Congress, he said Trump was one of several factors in his decision. Since then he’s made a number of cable news appearances lamenting the direction of the GOP under Trump and saying that there are plenty of other Republicans like him who can’t stand the president’s behavior. And as Dent himself told Jake Tapper Wednesday, he didn’t support Trump in 2016 or even vote for him. The reason he’s actively supporting Biden this time, he argued, is that “I feel that we need to return some sense of normalcy to the function of government. We simply don’t have that now. And that’s why I’m going to be voting for Joe Biden for president.” Tapper asked...
