Android-Smartphones: 950 Millionen Geräte durch Sicherheitslücke bedroht - SPIEGEL ONLINE "Built on tens of gigabytes of source code from the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the leading smartphone operating system carries a scary code in its heart. Named Stagefright, it is a media library that processes several popular media formats. Since media processing is often time-sensitive, the library is implemented in native code (C++) that is more prone to memory corruption than memory-safe languages like Java. [...] Unlike spear-phishing, where the victim needs to open a PDF file or a link sent by the attacker, this vulnerability can be triggered while you sleep. Before you wake up, the attacker will remove any signs of the device being compromised and you will continue your day as usual – with a trojaned phone. // Opportunism, publishing exploit/vulnerability to public without giving Google & Co enough time to fix it. Just to make money ... "[we can protect protect] enterprise customers from Stagefright vulnerability."

Where do children’s earliest memories go? – Kristin Ohlson – Aeon
They concluded that if the memory was a very emotional one, children were three times more likely to retain it two years later. Dense memories – if they understood the who, what, when, where and why – were five times more likely to be retained than disconnected fragments. [...] The hippocampus not only bundles multiple input from our senses together into a single new memory, it also links these sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and tactile sensations to similar ones already stored in the brain. But some parts of the hippocampus aren’t fully developed until we’re adolescents, making it hard for a child’s brain to complete this process. >> via

BBC News - Sleep's memory role discovered
>> sleeping or sleep deprived. Their study showed that sleeping mice formed significantly more new connections between neurons - they were learning more. [...] A new reason for sleep was discovered last year when experiments showed the brain used sleep to wash away waste toxins built up during a hard day's thinking. However, there are concerns that people are not getting enough sleep. As part of the BBC's Day of the Body Clock, Prof Russell Foster argued that society had become "supremely arrogant" in ignoring the importance of sleep, leading to "serious health problems". These include: cancer, heart disease, type-2 diabetes, infections, obesity. The reward for more sleep, Prof Foster argues, is we would all be "better human beings."

BBC News - Steroids can benefit athletes for a decade after use
Norwegian scientists had previously published work that showed the existence of a "muscle memory". This suggested that if people exercised when they were young, their muscles grew more easily when they exercised later in life. Continue reading the main story “ Start Quote In science if you cheat you are out for life, and my personal view is that it should be similar for athletes” Prof Kristian Gundersen University of Oslo The same team has now looked at the impact of a brief exposure to testosterone on mice. They found that three months after the drug was withdrawn, their muscles grew by 30% after six days of exercise. A control group of mice saw growth of just 6% in the same time period.

Russell Foster: Why do we sleep? - YouTube
when you sleep certain genes are switched on, responsible for restoration (recovery), energy savings, brain function (efficiency, learning, storing into long-term memory, creativity enhanced, problem solving enhanced), metabolism, .... ie study has shown people who have no REM sleep for 3 days turn shizophrenic. ie studies have shown, sleep deprivation slows down metabolism. body is stressed and slows down the metabolism. stress hormone cortisol goes up. you tend to eat more. get fat over time vs normal sleep and normal cortisol levels.

Sleeping shortly after learning something new is best way to remember it | Mail Online
Our study confirms that sleeping directly after learning something new is beneficial for memory. What's novel about this study is that we tried to shine light on sleep's influence on both types of declarative memory by studying semantically unrelated and related word pairs,’ Payne said.
‘Since we found that sleeping soon after learning benefited both types of memory, this means that it would be a good thing to rehearse any information you need to remember just prior to going to bed. In some sense, you may be “telling” the sleeping brain what to consolidate.’
Results of the study were published on March 22 in PLOS One.
