  116. is now a faculty member at Harvard Medical School, are the senior authors of both papers,
  117. which appear in Nature on Sept. 13. MIT postdoc Yeong Shin Yim is the first author of one
  118. paper, and UMass Medical School visiting scholars Sangdoo Kim and Hyunju Kim are the lead
  119. authors of the other.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;

  124.  
  125. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;Maternal immune activation (MIA) contributes to behavioural abnormalities
  126. associated with neurodevelopmental disorders in both primate and rodent
  127. offspring1&#x26;#8211;4. In
  128. humans, epidemiological studies suggest that exposure of fetuses to maternal inflammation
  129. increases the likelihood of developing autism spectrum disorder5&#x26;#8211;7. In pregnant
  130. mice,
  131. interleukin-17a (IL-17a) produced by T helper 17 (TH17) cells (CD4+ T helper effector
  132. cells involved in multiple inflammatory conditions) induces behavioural and cortical
  133. abnormalities in the offspring exposed to MIA8. However, it is unclear whether other
  134. maternal factors are required to promote MIA-associated phenotypes. Moreover, the
  135. underlying mechanisms by which MIA leads to T cell activation with increased IL-17a in
  136. the maternal circulation are not well understood. Here we show that MIA phenotypes in
  137. offspring require maternal intestinal bacteria that promote TH17 cell differentiation.
  138. Pregnant mice that had been colonized with mouse commensal segmented filamentous bacteria
  139. or human commensal bacteria that induce intestinal TH17 cells were more likely to produce
  140. offspring with MIA-associated abnormalities. We also show that small intestine dendritic
  141. cells from pregnant, but not from non-pregnant, females secrete IL-1&#x26;#946;, IL-23 and IL-
  142. 6 and
  143. stimulate T cells to produce IL-17a upon exposure to MIA. Overall, our data suggest that
  144. defined gut commensal bacteria with a propensity to induce TH17 cells may increase the
  145. risk of neurodevelopmental disorders in the offspring of pregnant mothers undergoing
  146. immune system activation owing to infections or autoinflammatory syndromes.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;

  150. mice exposed to maternal inflammation&#x3C;/a&#x3E;&#x3C;/p&#x3E;
  151.  
  152. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;Viral infection during pregnancy is correlated with increased frequency of
  153. neurodevelopmental disorders, and this is studied in mice prenatally subjected to
  154. maternal immune activation (MIA). We previously showed that maternal  T helper 17 cells
  155. promote the development of cortical and behavioural abnormalities in MIA-affected
  156. offspring. Here we show that cortical abnormalities are preferentially localized to a
  157. region encompassing the dysgranular zone of the primary somatosensory cortex (S1DZ).
  158. Moreover, activation of pyramidal neurons in this cortical region was sufficient to
  159. induce MIA-associated behavioural phenotypes in wild-type animals, whereas reduction in
  160. neural activity rescued the behavioural abnormalities in MIA-affected offspring.
  161. Sociability and repetitive behavioural phenotypes could be selectively modulated
  162. according to the efferent targets of S1DZ. Our work identifies a cortical region
  163. primarily, if not exclusively, centred on the S1DZ as the major node of a neural network
  164. that mediates behavioural abnormalities observed in offspring exposed to maternal
  165. inflammation.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;

  203. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;More specifically, for 20 years, liberal to moderate evangelicals have been leaving their churches because they disagree with the Christian right. This is important because it allows us to recognize that this sorting process is plural, local, and continual. It is not something owned by the left or right, but a regular and expected part of life in all religious organizations.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;

  251. The Timing of Food Stamp Receipt and Educational Performance&#x3C;/a&#x3E;:&#x3C;/p&#x3E;
  252.  
  253. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;The impact of poor nutrition has been established as an important determinant
  254. of learning and achievement among school aged children. It has also been demonstrated
  255. that
  256. the single monthly treatment of food stamps leaves meaningful nutritional deficiencies in
  257. recipient households during the final weeks of the benefits cycle. This paper exploits
  258. detailed administrative data on standardized math tests scores and randomized food stamp
  259. receipt dates to allow us to measure the impact of these low nutritional periods on
  260. student
  261. performance. Our main results are that scores are notably lower when the exam falls near
  262. the end of the benefit cycle and when food stamps arrive on the four days immediately
  263. preceding the exam. While both boys and girls experienced a similar penalty with receipt
  264. near the end of the cycle, the effect from receipt just prior to the exam appears to be
  265. partially explained by a large negative effect associated with weekend receipt, which
  266. coincides with the four days prior to the exam, that is concentrated among African-
  267. American
  268. boys. Our results provide evidence that households do not sufficiently smooth consumption
  269. and that this has measurable effects on student performance. The fact that weekend
  270. receipt
  271. differs suggests a behavioral response from households beyond food insecurity that also
  272. has
  273. meaningful effects.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;

  303.  
  304. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;Here&#x27;s something interesting: I just flipped through a pretty spectacular
  305. meltdown in somebody else&#x27;s Facebook thread, and one of the names looked familiar.
  306. &#x3C;/p&#x3E;
  307.  
  308. &#x3C;p&#x3E;It was from a mailing list discussion nine years ago, discussing why usenet
  309. killfiles were originally invented. The guy who just in the last few days melted down on
  310. Facebook? Same guy that had a famous flamewar in the 80s, just before Larry Wall
  311. implemented killfiles.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;
  312.  
  313. &#x3C;p&#x3E;...so he&#x27;s not just a nutcase, he&#x27;s a HISTORIC nutcase. He was a fedora-wearing
  314. douchebag before the current generation of fedora-wearing douchebags were even BORN. HE HAS
  315. ALMOST SINGLEHANDEDLY DRIVEN INNOVATION IN THE FIELD OF PLONK.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;
  316.  
  317. &#x3C;/blockquote&#x3E;
  318. &#x3C;p&#x3E;&#x3C;em&#x3E;Bonus: If you didn&#x27;t click through and read the thread, the concept of &#x22;Plonk&#x27;s
  319. Constant&#x22; is introduced...&#x3C;/em&#x3E;

  332. &#x3C;blockquote&#x3E;&#x3C;p&#x3E;That decline was primarily driven by what the authors call a &#x26;#8220;culling of the least healthy fetuses&#x26;#8221; resulting in a &#x26;#8220;horrifyingly large&#x26;#8221; increase in fetal deaths and miscarriages. The paper estimates that among the  babies conceived from November 2013 through March 2015, &#x26;#8220;between 198 and 276 more children would have been born had Flint not enacted the switch in water,&#x26;#8221; write health economists Daniel Grossman of West Virginia University and David Slusky of Kansas University.&#x3C;/p&#x3E;
