Whole brain analyses revealed a significant interaction between verbal CMDT and sex on (a) regional homogeneity within an area from the left anterior temporal lobe (b) on the resting state functional connectivity (RSFC) between the mPFC and the left inferior frontal gyrus and (c) on fractional amplitude of low frequency fluctuations (fALFF) in several distinct areas, including the precuneus and middle cingulate gyrus, left middle temporal gyrus, right middle frontal gyrus, and cerebellum. These interactions were mediated by positive correlations in females and negative correlations in males. These findings suggest that greater CMDT in females is reflected by (a) regional coherence (regional homogeneity) of brain areas responsible for representing and combining concepts as well as (b) the efficient functional connection (RSFC) between the key areas for the default state of cognitive activity and speech production, and (c) greater spontaneous neural activity (fALFF) during the resting of brain areas involved in frontal lobe functions, default cognitive activities, and language functions.
Inger Andersen: If we deny facts, if we say that up is down and down is up, that left is right and right is left, we are obviously going to get lost. It as simple as that, because science gives a direction. Science tells us what the facts are. A study by the National Commission on COVID 19 and Criminal Justice, a nonprofit organization with bipartisan leadership, found a higher rate of COVID 19 deaths among incarcerated people than was true for the general public. The disparity was even greater after adjusting for the sex, age and race of the inmate population. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended that states vaccinate corrections workers and inmates at the same time when possible, and infectious disease experts at seven of the nation’s top universities in a December 2020 report urged state governments to prioritize both groups..
The news of the arrest came on the heels of two high profile appearances by Springsteen. On Jan 20, Springsteen performed as part of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, singing “Land of Hope and Dreams” in front of the Lincoln Memorial. During Sunday’s Super Bowl, he appeared in a Jeep ad filmed in Kansas urging people to find common ground..
Distance from everyone as he makes final preparations to take on the role of a lifetime. They said he was too old, too unsteady, too boring. That his pledge to restore the of the nation felt like antiquated hokum at a moment when Hurricane Trump was tearing through America, ripping through institutions, chewing up norms and spitting them out.
