it was DC Antifa. It’s not a centralized organization that’s all. They use old fashioned phone-tree type stuff. Way back when when I was in churchy things, I studied the concept of “cell churches” and it was a similar idea. There’s no central authority and any cooperation is voluntary but getting along is generally nice so affinity groups generally do.

Kudos to MyHeritage in their upgrade Ethnicity Estimate. Now it’s including early (Colonial) American English/British/German immigrant genetic groups mapped properly. Having gone back to that time in genealogy, I know this aspect of my genetic lineage is accurate as it lines up perfectly. The final frame is the range in which certain parts of my genetic ancestry migrated around for centuries, New Haven, CT area down around to Elizabeth, NJ area, so consistently that even I was born in this area the planet, EVEN THOUGH there wasn’t any family homes or anything like that passed down. Just mulling about in a similar zone for almost 500 years.

That is, indeed, one of the things that inspired me long ago to find this out. I have a very architectural set of dreams — many buildings wiht many floors and rooms inside and places, all elaborate. What gives them structure within dreams? I know it would be the same as what gives them structure from vision as it’s the same internal mechanisms… but something has to tie together room to room to room to room and keep them distinct as well. I think this is the part, so I’m really happy.

That is, indeed, one

It’s common in every election for the losing side to cry foul and claim there was fraud. Investigations happen. They find a couple of bad votes. The losing side remains unhappy. But for the losing President to do this is astounding. But Trump is known for perpetuating bad rumors and holding onto them for years. Example: “Obama was not America but born in another country.”. That wasn’t his first time either. He’s done that in other things too. It’s just.. never has he gotten so many to believe him.

It’s common in every

“If the PPA represents landmark information, then it must be able to discriminate between 2 places of the same category, but in different locations. Instead, if the PPA represents general category information (as hypothesized here), then it will not represent the location of a particular place, but only the category of the place. As predicted, we found that the PPA represents 2 buildings from the same category, but in different locations, as more similar than 2 buildings from different categories, but in the same location. In contrast, another scene-selective region of cortex, the retrosplenial complex (RSC), showed the exact opposite pattern of results. Such a double dissociation suggests distinct neural systems involved in categorizing and navigating our environment, including the PPA and RSC, respectively.” https://www.pnas.org/content/116/42/21312
