Between Us: Stories of Unconscious Bias

Habeeb Akande is a sex educator, author and historian. His work explores an ancient African sexual practice for women's satisfaction, which he believes can close the gender pleasure gap. His work also covers race relations and sexual intimacy in Brazil and Muslim cultures. Habeeb is the author of the Amazon bestselling book Kunyaza: The Secret to Female Pleasure, which was featured in the BBC documentary, The Orgasm Gap. Habeeb aims to present a positive representation of African cultures and sexually empower women with culturally-competent sex education. "The fact that we have female body parts that are named after European men. This idea that the G-spot was named after Ernst Grafenberg in the 1950s, the Fallopian tubes, again named after a man, the Skene's glands. And this is because the Europeans have done a very good job of documenting their findings, but they are new findings to them. They'll document it, and then it's disseminated across the board as if this is the standard for everyone to adopt. And anyone that that might have "discovered" this prior to the events are dismissed. So when I've written proposals for some sex journals about my research, about like, the Kunyaza tradition, and eastern Africa and their practises, they understand of sex and sexuality. Many times they don't want to hear it unless I'm speaking about female genital mutilation"

Simon Fuller provides some clarity on issues such as what is a casual employee? What are their rights? And what are employers' obligations in respect of casual workers? With particular reference to two recent Full Court decisions (being WorkPac Pty Ltd and Skene and WorkPac Pty Ltd and Rossato) that have, in some respects, changed the landscape for casual workers. The session also considers the federal government's regulatory response to some of the issues raised in Skene and also the pending High Court challenge to the Full Court's decision in Rossato.

A., Malekpour, A., Beskind, D. H., Vidmar, N., Pearson, J. M., Skene, J. H. P., Carter, R. M. Abstract: Efforts to explain jury decisions have focused on competing models emphasizing utility, narrative, and social-affective mechanisms, but these are difficult to distinguish using behavior alone. Here, we use patterns of brain activation derived from large neuroimaging databases to look for signatures of the cognitive processes associated with models of juror decision making. We asked jury-eligible subjects to rate the strength of a series of criminal cases while recording the resulting patterns of brain activation. When subjects considered evidence, utility and narrative processes were both active, but cognitive processes associated with narrative models better explain the patterns of brain activation. In contrast, a biasing effect of crime type on perceived strength of the case was best explained by brain patterns associated with social cognition. Copy rights belong to original authors.

On Thursday 21 May, 2020, the Federal Court upheld the WorkPac vs Skene 2018, when it decided that a casual mine worker who had regular and predictable shifts was entitled to the same benefits as a permanent member of staff, including accrued annual leave pay. What does this potentially mean for the security industry? In this episode of the ASIAL Security Insider podcast, we speak with Chris Delaney, ASIAL's workplace relations advisor, about the potential impact of this decision on the security industry. What might it means for companies who hire casual staff? What can they do to minimise potential claims of a similar nature to the recent court case and what should they be doing moving forward to reduce potential liability?

They talk about the chances they take with diverse influences from funk to pop to 80s retro stylings mixed in with their trademark brand of progressive metal, how a song like "What's the Catch?" and its associated video were formed and fashioned, and which country seems to be surpassing all others for streams of their music.

Originally from the England, John lived in Australia before settling on Tiree. We talk about his work in Australia with the Pintupi people, the choice of coming to live and work on Tiree, the nature of rural locations, his engagement with local Gaelic culture, the place names of the island and the remarkable Ringing Stone, a feature of the island which has had 6 thousand years of continuous human use. There’s also a section in Gaelic, in which we talk about characters of the island, which then leads us into place names. Throughout the episode you’ll hear a tune that John wrote for his son, called Michael John’s Reel. The tune was recorded in 2018 at the Tiree Fèis Tutor's Ceilidh. It features the wonderful Màrtainn Skene on the box, Dr John Holliday on flute, Kenny Rankin on guitar and Anna Garvin on keys. John's daughter Sarah has a podcast, too, it's called Utopia Dispatch. It "takes on the small task of radically reimagining the future of human society, while somehow managing to keep our spirits up at the same time.

This week’s episode is a wet one! Jess shares the science of G-Spots & squirting along with techniques you can try tonight. She answers common questions including: Can all women squirt? Is the G-Spot a real thing? Is female ejaculate pee? How can I get my partner to squirt? What is the Vagus nerve? If you’d rather read about the G-Spot and Squirting, check out some summary notes from The New Sex Bible below: The G-Spot This sensitive area accessible through the upper wall of the vagina (toward the stomach) has enjoyed its share of controversy over the years. Dr. Beverly Whipple named the G-Spot after Dr. Ernst Grafenberg, M.D., who previously described it as a “distinct erotogenic zone” on the anterior vaginal wall along the urethra that responds to sexual stimulation. The G-Spot is an area marked by many sensitive nerve pathways, tissues and organs, but it is not a distinct entity, nor is it located inside of the vagina; Dr. Whipple clarifies that it can be felt through the vagina and when stimulated, the tissue begins to swell. As opposed to being a singular organ, it is believed that its sensitivity is connected to corollary stimulation of the female prostate (previously referred to as Skene’s glands), urethral sponge and inner clitoris. Remember that the G-Spot isn’t a distinct organ, but an area of the body that is associated with the release of fluids. Each woman’s experience with the G-Spot is unique and the degree of pleasure associated with this sensitive area can vary according to a number of factors including arousal levels and monthly cycle. I’ve heard women describe G-Spot stimulation as irritating, weird, neutral, tickling, euphoric, sensational and unbelievably titillating. The bottom line is that there is no right way to experience pleasure and no two bodies respond in the exact same way. Sex Tip From The Pros Though squirting isn’t a sideshow trick and not every woman will experience the same degree of ejaculation, you can encourage fluid expulsion by bearing down with your PC muscles. As you approach orgasm, take a few deep breaths as you “push out” with the muscles around your vagina. Relax and allow your body to respond naturally resting assured that the amount of liquid is not necessarily commensurate with your experience of pleasure. There seems to be a great deal of misinformation floating around about female ejaculation, but the expulsion of fluid from the urethra is a fairly well-documented phenomenon. Not only do early sexual texts including the Kama Sutra reference women’s ability to expel fluid during sex, but the latest research reveals that the skene’s glands, which are a part of the G-Spot and drain into the urethra, are homologous to the prostate gland in men. G-Spot ejaculation, like prostate ejaculation, is a sexually-induced reaction that may or may not coincide with orgasm. Mainstream porn may tout this “spraying” sensation as some sort of a sideshow trick, but in reality, the fluid expelled is usually less than a teaspoon in volume and doesn’t usually squirt across the room. Some women and their lovers are concerned that the fluid they discharge is urine, however, studies confirm that its contents are similar to male prostatic fluid. It has been found to contain prostatic-specific antigen, prostatic acid phosphatase, urea, creatinine, glucose and fructose. Some describe it as sweet tasting and others say that the taste is rather subdued. The concern with regard to urinating during sex can sometimes inhibit our sexual response and limit women’s experiences of pleasure with the G-Spot and ejaculation. The skene’s glands are embedded in the spongey tissue that surrounds the urethra between the vagina and the bladder. It is therefore common for women to feel as though they have to pee when the G-Spot is stimulated through the vagina or the abdominal wall. Many of us tense up, contract our pelvic floor muscles or cease stimulation altogether in reaction to this sens...

En av de få personer som landsförvisats från Sverige hette Fredrik Olaus Nilsson och var baptist. Från tidigt 1600-tal blev det ett brott i Sverige att inte följa den svenska kyrkans tro, och man kunde straffas på olika sätt. Det allra vanligaste var dryga böter eller fängelse och en handfull personer i Sverige har också avrättats för sin tro. Men lagen gav ännu en möjlighet och det var landsförvisning. Det straffet drabbade inte så många. Men under de 250 åren som lagen fanns så förvisades ett 15-tal personer ut ur landet. Och det var framförallt personer som övergick till den katolska läran. Men när frikyrkorörelsen kom till under 1800-talet drabbades också den, inte minst Fredrik Olaus Nilsson som landförvisades 1851. Han föddes 1809 på Vendelsö vid den halländska kusten. Hans förutsättningar att klara sig i livet var inte så stora. Hans far drack och Fredrik Olaus lärde sig bara läsa hjälpligt eftersom han var tvungen att bidra till familjens försörjning. Göran Valinder i Göteborg, vars farföräldrar var medlemmar i en av de första baptistförsamlingarna, har forskat om F O Nilsson, som han kom att kallas. Den unge Fredrik Olaus gick till sjöss när han 19 och det var på havet några år senare hans tillvaro för alltid förändrades.    På Vendelsö vid den halländska kusten föddes 1809  en liten gosse som fick heta Fredrik Olaus Nilsson. Hans förutsättningar att klara sig i livet var inte så stora. Han far drack och Fredrik Olaus lärde sig bara läsa hjälpligt eftersom han var tvungen att bidra till familjens försörjning. Men trots att starten i livet var kantad av svårigheter skulle Fredrik Olaus Nilsson senare bli en viktig person. Det var han som införde baptismen till Sverige. Fast det var ingen enkel sak eftersom tron var strikt reglerad i lag. Det gick så långt att Fredrik Olaus landsförvisades på grund av sin tro. Göran Valinder i Göteborg, vars farföräldrar ar medlemmar i en av de första baptistförsamlingarna i Göteborg, har forskat om Fredrik Olaus Nilssons liv. Han berättar att Fredrik Olaus gick till sjöss som ung, han var bara 19 år då han liksom sin far och farfar före honom, blev sjöman. Och det var på havet några år senare som den händelse inträffade som skulle förändra hans tillvaro för alltid. - Fredrik Olaus hade fått hyra på en amerikansk ångare som hamnade i sjönöd 1832 och som så ofta när sjömän hamnar i sjönöd så börjar de inse allvaret i livet och det kom till en vändpunkt för honom, berättar Göran Valinder, och fortsätter - Han själv uttryckte det som att han gick från mörker till ljus, och han engagerade sig som metodist. Efter den här livsomvälvande stormen kom Fredrik Olaus till New York, och under en tid missionerade han som metodist bland de svenska sjömännen där. Det var med sin religiösa omvändelse i ryggen som han kom hem till Sverige igen. Han fick ekonomiskt stöd från Metodistkyrkan i USA för att fortsätta att missionera bland sjömän i Göteborg och hela västra Sverige. Vid den här tiden växte baptiströrelsen fram i Amerika och Europa. Baptisterna hade en annan syn än den svenska statskyrkan i flera frågor, men det mest readikala skillnaden gällde synen på dopet. Dopet, menade baptisterna, skulle vara något som den vuxne valde att göra, ingenting som skulle utföras på spädbarn som inget kunde säga i saken. Och i Göteborg träffade nu Fredrik Olaus den man som skulle leda honom till baptismen. ­- Det var en annan göteborgare, en sjöman som hette Gustav Schröder. Han hade blivit baptist i Amerika. Men det var ingen snabb omvändning till baptism, understryker Valinder, utan Fredrik Olaus läste Bibeln noga och rannsakade sig själv. Till slut åkte han till Tyskland där han döptes i Elbe. Väl hemma igen bildade han Sveriges första baptistförsamling i Vallersvik i norra Halland. De första personer han döpte var sin hustru, sina bröder och några vänner. Fredrik Olaus Nilsson höll sig inte bara till församlingen i Vallersvik utan han åkte runt i hela västra Sverige och predikade  i små möten. De kallas konventiklar, de här mötena där en grupp människor läser bibeln och ber ihop. Detta var förbjudet enligt lag. Redan 1726 hade det så kallade konventikelplakatet förbjudit den här sortens möten såvida det inte var en präst närvarande. Genom detta förbud skulle man hålla den evangeliska läran ren från främmande inslag. Vanliga människor skulle helt enkelt inte ge sig till att försöka tolka Bibeln eftersom de inte hade förstånd till det. Eller som det stod i lagen: Dock at de sig afhålla ifrån diupsinnige frågor och Läro-stridigheter som them enfaldigom äro för höga och kunna gifwa anledning till någon willfarelse. Nyårsdagen 1850 ställs allt på sin spets när Nilsson sitter med en grupp människor i ett hem i Berghem i Västergötland. Folk i trakten har fått reda på att mötet pågår och blivit uppretade. FO Nilsson som förde dagbok hela sitt vuxna liv berättar själv om vad som hände. Några av oss var samlade i broder A. Anderssons hus i Älfsborgs län i akt och mening att fira Herrens nattvard, medans vi höll på med att fira nattvarden blev vi plötsligt omringade av en stor hop pöbel, beväpna med störar, bössor, pistoler och svärd, de bröt sig in i huset och slog och sparkade mig hänsynslöst. Slutligen kastade de mig i en kärra, satte sig på mig och körde iväg mig under fasansfulla svordomar och hotelser, tills de komma till en gästgifaregård, där de stannade i två timmar och söp, de tvingade mig hela tiden att sitta kvar i kärran i den hårda kylan. Från närliggande byar hade samlats en stor massa pöblar som utspydde sina svordomar, hotelser och sarkasmer emot mig, under det de blåmultade mig med snöbollar. Slutligen fördes jag till häktet i Skene. Här låstes jag in i en cell som saknade både värme och säng. Hungrig och frusen fick jag smaka på vad det innebär att lida för Kristi skull. Nu startade en rättsprocess som skulle pågå stora delar av 1850. Till slut dömdes FO Nilsson i högsta instans till det straff som konventikelplakatet föreskrev som sista åtgärd för den som inte rättade sig efter kyrkans ordning – nämligen landsförvisning. Han är en av de ytterst få som drabbats sak av detta straff, trots att det var många som vände sig till väckelserörelserna under 1800-talets senare hälft. Men för det stora flertalet så gick det aldrig längre än till skarpa tillrättavisningar och böter. -Vad som skilde honom från andra var att när han var inför kungen och bad om nåd så erbjöd kungen honom nåd om han kunde lova att inte sprida sitt budskap, men han ville inte ge upp sitt uppdrag, han var en sann kolportör säger Göran Valinder. FO Nilsson åkte inte raka vägen till Amerika, utan tog sig först till Köpenhamn där det var tillåtet att vara baptist. Hans efterlämnade trosbröder i Sverige levde under ett hårt tryck, och efter några år var det en ganska stor grupp som bestämde sig för att ta sig till Amerika. De hörde av sig till FO Nilsson för att be honom att bli deras reseledare. 1853 i maj for de till Amerika. Väl framme i USA hamnade FO Nilsson efter ett tag i ett samhälle i Minnesota som heter Scania. Där lärde han känna en annan svensk immigrant, en man som hette Anders Pettersson när han växte upp i södra Östergötland, men som i det nya landet bytt namn till Andrew Peterson. Den mannen vet de flesta av oss rätt mycket om, det är nämligen hans dagböcker som ligger till grund för Vilhelm Mobergs utvandrarserie – Andrew var Karl-Oskar, helt enkelt. Åren i USA innebär mycket resande och predikande för  Fredrik Olaus Nilsson, främst i svenskbygderna, och 1859 får han amerikanskt medborgarskap. Men redan året därpå, 1860, fick Fredrik Olaus Nilsson erbjudande om att bli den amerikanska baptistkyrkans missionär i Sverige. Så kom han hem igen, och nästan det första han gör på svensk mark är att delta i kapellinvigning i Kristianstad. Vid det tillfället fanns en person med som var journalist och som hjälpte FO Nilsson att skriva ihop en nådeansökan – vilken beviljades. Det som hade hänt saker i Sverige under tiden Nilsson varit i USA. Konventikelplakatet hade upphävts 1858, och nu kunde man alltså benåda Nilsson. Men det var fortfarande inte helt fritt att predika hur som helst, och de församlingar som bildades inom olika frikyrkor drabbades av hårda repressalier från kyrkan, och inte sällan av vanligt folks ilska. En avgörande faktor var klockslaget för predikan. När högmässotiden var inne för svenska kyrkan, då fick inga andra aktiviteter förekomma, och absolut inte några frikyrkliga sammankomster. -De främsta anklagelserna från kyrka och stat gällde hur baptisterna dyrka Gud på samma tid som andra kristna, säger Göran Valinder. Staten gav med sig med tiden, men kyrkan gjorde det inte, de ville straffa baptisterna. Den som inte nöjde sig med statens gudstjänster bara skulle få komma tillsammans på såda tidpunkter då krogar, barer, teatrar och cirkusbesökare hade sina sammankomster. Fredrik Olaus Nilsson och hans hustru återvände med tiden till USA, där han till slut dog 1881. Baptister i arkiven Här i Sverige finns många av F O Nilssons efterlämnade dokument samlade i ett arkiv i källaren på Bromma Folkhögskola. Där jobbar kyrkohistorikern Magnus Lindvall som arkivarie. Bland alla handlingar som finns i arkivet har han plockat fram ett litet nött blått skrivhäfte där de första baptisterna i F O Nilssons församling i Vallersvik noggrant noterade sina medlemmar i. - Och här står de upptecknade, de första som döptes, och det man kan se att många emigrerade. Mer än hälften av den här första församlingen emigrerade till Amerika, berättar Magnus Lindvall. - Det som är lite kuriosa är att jag hittade en annan förteckning över  när de första församlingarna bildades, och det första dopet var ju den 21 september 1848, men någon har skrivit att församlingen bildades den 22 september. Det kan man förklara med att de gjorde dopet så sent på kvällen så att de inte skulle bli upptäckta, berättar Magnus Lindvall. I häftet med församlingsmedlemmarna kan man också se att flera uteslutits ur församlingen och Magnus Lindvall förklarar att de var ganska slutna i början bland annat för att skydda sig från de som ville dra församlingen i vanära. De hade vid den tiden en ganska sträng församlingstukt och det visade sig att det behövdes eftersom det kom in i baptistförsamlingarna och spred andra läror. Vartefter handlingar i arkivet gås igenom och läggs in i en databas återupptäcker Magnus Lindvall handlingar som legat glömda i årtionden. Ett sådant exempel är när de återfann den första trosbekännelsen för den första församlingen. - Den trodde vi gått förlorad, berättar Magnus Lindvall. När vi hittade det handskrivna originalet var det som julafton. Det som är intressant att länsa den första trosbekännelsen är att det är den första riktigt demokratiska "organisationen" i Sverige, för alla oavsett kön och ställning var sin röst. Och vid den tiden var det inte bara kvinnor som inte hade rösträtt utan också de som inte var bemedlade. - Så det här var ju naturligtvis något som var oerhört utmanande i det samhället. I det här arkivet finns mycket mer material från baptiströrelsens tidiga år. Till exempel från de första missionsresorna till Kongo i slutet av 1800- talet. Det var resor som inte bara handlade om att sprida baptismen, utan faktiskt också fick stor politisk betydelse. Vid den tiden var det den belgiske Kung Leopold den andre som personligen ägde landet och som med brutala metoder plundrade det på råvaror. Den första baptistmissionären som åkte till Kongo från Sverige hette Edvard Vilhelm Sjöblom och året var 1892. - E V Sjöblom var en av dom första som uppmärksammade det här internationellt. Han skrev artiklar till tidningar till Sverige, England, Schweiz och USA. Han var en av de som fick upp det här på bordet och som ledde till att Kung Leopold var tvungen att lämna ifrån sig landet. Många av E V Sjöbloms brev finns bevarad i arkivet och även hans dagboksanteckningar som även finns i ett nytryck, berättar Magnus Lindvall. Arkivet Baptistsamfundets och Svenska Missionskyrkans arkiv ligger i källaren på Bromma Folkhögskola, Åkeshovsvägen 29 i Bromma. Det har inga fasta öppettider utan besök sker efter överenskommelse med arkivarien Magnus Lindvall.

Gary & Ruthie x x Released: 10th January 2009, 48m   We love to hear from you! Please email garyandruth@celticmythpodshow.com, or call us using Speakpipe News & Views We talk about the generous gift from Orient Xpress, their rocking song Ancient Hero and the demise of the superlative podcast, Deo's Shadow.   Mr Monaghan's Magical Faery Dust by Faeries Wear Boots Born just weeks apart, with a mutual love of all things dark, gothic, shiny, folky, and fae, it was inevitable that Chrissie and Polly would eventually come together to form Faeries Wear Boots, a modern melting-pot of the darker elements of British and Irish folk music and lore with pretty tunes, driving beats, and of course, very big boots. Soon they were joined by Chrissie's father, Andrew, and (when he wasn't busy being a rock star) her brother Robby and the Faeries Wear Boots line up was complete... Described by one festival organizer as ‘faeries with attitude’, Faeries Wear Boots continue to go from strength to strength as they win over audiences with their captivating tunes and fantastical faerie attire. ... Already Faeries Wear Boots have been asked to support Scottish songstress Isla Sinclair, and have played alongside Pagan-Folk and Faery artists such as Omnia, Daughters of Gaia, The Dolmen, Wendy Rule and Elfin Spiral. You can find out more details about Faeries Wear Boots on their Website or on their Contributor Page on our website.   Long Lankin by Tinkerscuss Tinkerscuss are sisters Erin and Bryony Holden who live in the north Gloucestershire village of Bourton-on-the-Water. They are renowned for songs that are dark and eerie along with the more traditional ‘Celtic’ pieces. The combination of Bryony's rich, resonant vocals and Erin's modal guitar style will enthral, bespell and wrap the listener in the mists of myth and legend. You can find out more details about Tinkerscuss on Myspace or on their Contributor Page on our website.    Perfect by Triflemore Sometimes the impractical makes perfect sense… From the very first tune and lyric they combined, Triflemore knew they were on to something that fit. Though choosing to start a collaboration with an entire ocean in the way, meant even small tasks would require extra effort. It also meant having to challenge any existing theories that having to be in the same room is a pre-requisite to good songwriting. And well, many have been shocked to discover that their first album, Words from Notes, a haunting, well-intertwined voice and guitar duet, was written and recorded without ever having met in person. The impractical was achieved by using technology to deliver back and forth the ideas of two souls from two very different places. Susan Rhea, from small-town America, and Owen Goudie from the Shetland Islands, found their inherent differences irrelevant to the ability to seamlessly blend their musical thoughts. The result is a contemplation of emotions that create themes which are relevant to us all in our own way. By searching for tunes and lyrics to enlighten their own hearts, they’ve happened upon a way to make a difference by creating songs to briefly open windows that let us peer in behind the joys and often lingering sorrows of a life. In their song Goudfield, the question is asked “What would you say if words would last?” Triflemore will continue to answer this with each new song that finds it’s way into their hearts. This is their life’s journey. And, you could say, that as they continue to overcome the obstacles that the distance places before them, the impractical has become something they have learned to embrace because to them, nothing has ever made more sense….. You can find out more about Triflemore on their website or our Contributor page.   Mairi's Wedding by Anne Roos Anne has graciously allowed us to play Mairi's Wedding which is a superb folk piece from her album, Haste to the Wedding. More details about Anne and these albums can be found on her Contributor page. Anne’s music repertoire spans traditional Celtic (Irish, Scottish, Welsh), English, folk, religious and secular, Early, Renaissance and classical music, to Broadway, contemporary, pop and Jazz, and is virtually unlimited. She can easily provide the traditional “Canon in D” and “Here Comes the Bride” for a wedding processional, and play classic Frank Sinatra or Metallica at a reception. Her ability to faithfully play such a broad range of musical styles has helped to establish her popularity.

Skene.   Ancient Hero by Orient XPress Orient Xpress is a transCaucasian Indie Guitar band with Azeri passion, Irish soul, Essex Blag, Polish spirit, and a whole heap of loveliness. The sort of band that a 15yo crazy will love but his mum will too (from their Myspace page).

She also returns to the studio soon to begin recording her second album. In 2008, she also founded Poets Labyrinth Productions with Jason English. You can find out more details about Tiffany on her website or on her Contributor Page on our website.   All Around My Hat by Skully Skully has graciouslly allowed us to play his rousing version of the Steeleye Span classic, All Around My Hat from his album Irish Makeover. The vocals on this track are by Katie Murphy. "These are songs that have been performed and sung for generations", says Skully, "from the sean-nos singer beside a fire in an old thatched cottage to grand orchestrated versions, these songs have been passed down through the years". You can find out more details about Skully on Myspace or on their Contributor Page on our website.   The Minstrel Boy by Danny Quinn Danny Quinn has been a performer of Irish & American folk music for nearly three decades. He has entertained throughout the U.S., Canada, Ireland and England at concerts, coffee houses, festivals, corporate events and pubs. Since 1979 he has shared the stage with or opened for renowned artists such as the Clancy Brothers, Tom Chapin, Peter Yarrow, Robbie O'Connell, the Makem & Spain Brothers, John Prine, David Mallett, Walt Michael, Eilleen Ivers, The Chieftains and many others.

England born Chris, as well as Jim and Derrek like to enjoy ourselves, and like to get everybody around us to have a fun time, but we also are very dedicated musicians. Although it may seem like Claymore is just about jumping around and not appearing serious, all of us are committed to being the best at what each of us do. We have our regular drummer Don (Otto) Wilson out with us on most occasions also. We are truly passionate about the music. We are also very grateful for our family and friends, who come out or support us in many different ways.

Fluent in an extensive list of standard classical repertoire, from Adams to Zelenka, she is also an avid fan and performer of traditional and crossover music employing such styles as Celtic, Bluegrass, Gypsy and Scandinavian fiddle, as well as jazz and improvisation. When not practicing, performing, or composing, Gillogly’s off hours are spent writing fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and experimenting in painting, drawing and calligraphy. She is a published writer in multiple formats, and has been a contributing critic to The Green Man Review, an online arts and culture magazine. Her favorite culinary pursuit is brewing her infamous triple-espresso coffee, known to those who've dared taste it as "Viola Varnish". Gillogly performs on a French 1860 Charles Simonin violin.

They call themselves folk-indie, but only because they are acoustic led and have a fiddle; in reality it is difficult to categorise music which draws on Irish, English, Punk and Indie influences. Over the past year they have played across the South coast, from London to Cornwall, playing many festivals in the Summer, and with friends and acts like 3 Daft Monkeys. With a growing following and reputation for song writing, musicianship and performance, Thinker are keen to build on their achievements, and bring their music to audiences old and new in 2009.

The incident went forgotten in his mind until a couple of weeks before St. Paddy's day when it was too late to back out. He rounded the rest of us up without much fuss, having known each other from school, and we started practicing on the 16h of March. The next day went surprisingly well and we haven’t stopped since. We also needed a band name so we named ourselves after our bass/singer/tin whistler, Justin Logue, like a culchie Bon Jovi. I suppose you could call it Irish folk rock or as I prefer, drinking music, or music you could punch your mother to. Either way we hope you enjoy our stuff. We’re currently recording an album and will be hitting your local in the next year or two.

Single nucleus sequencing fails to detect microglial activation

Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.04.13.035386v1?rss=1 Authors: Thrupp, N., Sala Frigerio, C., Wolfs, L., Skene, N. G., Poovathingal, S., Fourne, Y., Matthews, P. M., Theys, T., Mancuso, R., de Strooper, B., Fiers, M. Abstract: Single nucleus RNA-Seq (snRNA-Seq) methods are used as an alternative to single cell RNA-Seq methods, as they allow transcriptomic profiling of frozen tissue. However, it is unclear whether snRNA-Seq is able to detect cellular state. Indeed, snRNA-Seq analyses of human brain samples have failed to detect a consistent microglial activation signature in Alzheimer's Disease. A comparison of microglia from single cells and single nuclei of four human subjects reveals that ~1% of genes is depleted in nuclei compared to whole cells. This small population contains 18% of genes previously implicated in microglial activation, including APOE, CST3, FTL, SPP1, and CD74. We confirm our findings across multiple previous single nucleus and single cell studies. Given the low sensitivity of snRNA-Seq to this population of activation genes, we conclude that snRNA-Seq is not suited to detecting cellular activation in microglia in human disease.
