New research -- the evolution of complementary cognition -- proposes that in adapting to enormous environmental upheavals over hundreds of thousands of years, humans evolved to specialize in different but complementary forms of cognition, styles of 'thinking,' that work together as a complex adaptive system -- a kind of collective brain.

Solar activities, such as CME(Coronal Mass Ejection), cause geomagnetic storm that is a temporary disturbance of the Earth's magnetosphere. Geomagnetic storms can affect GPS positioning, radio communication, and power transmission system. Solar explosions also emit radiation, which can affect satellite failures, radiation exposure to aircraft crew, and space activity. Therefore, it is important to understand space weather phenomena and their impact on the Earth.

Magnetic-spin interactions that allow spin-manipulation by electrical control allow potential applications in energy-efficient spintronic devices. A Chinese-Australia collaboration published today describes for the first time the induction of such interactions in a layered material tantalum-sulfide by addition of iron atoms, and tuning by insertion of protons.
