- ChatGPT Gets Its “Wolfram Superpowers”!—Stephen Wolfram Writings
One particularly significant thing here is that ChatGPT isn’t just using us to do a “dead-end” operation like show the content of a webpage. Rather, we’re acting much more like a true “brain implant” for ChatGPT—where it asks us things whenever it needs to, and we give responses that it can weave back into whatever it’s doing. It’s rather impressive to see in action.

- Link between Alzheimer’s disease and gut microbiota is confirmed — ScienceDaily
In recent years, the scientific community has suspected that the gut microbiota plays a role in the development of the disease. A team now confirms the correlation, in humans, between an imbalance in the gut microbiota and the development of amyloid plaques in the brain, which are at the origin of Alzheimer’s disease.

- You can’t lead a team with a spreadsheet. | by Matt Schellhas | Mar, 2023 | Medium
You might be able to lead your team with a spreadsheet, but you’ll never lead them well by ignoring human nature. If you can’t measure it, you still need to manage it.

- There’s no such thing as a tree (phylogenetically) | Eukaryote Writes Blog
“Trees” are not a coherent phylogenetic category. On the evolutionary tree of plants, trees are regularly interspersed with things that are absolutely, 100% not trees. This means that, for instance, either:
The common ancestor of a maple and a mulberry tree was not a tree.
The common ancestor of a stinging nettle and a strawberry plant was a tree.
And this is true for most trees or non-trees that you can think of.

- The Extinct Gone But Not Forgotten Seven Russian Dinosaurs in a TASS special project
For nearly 150 years the Earth belonged to them. Gargantuan and tiny. Gregarious and solitary. Overgrown with bone armor or with gentle fluff. These dinosaurs, or, literally, “terrible lizards” populated the whole planet. Except for what is now the territory of Russia. At least, this had been the common belief up to the beginning of last century. We have found out what dinosaurs roamed the territory of today’s Russia millions of years ago and picked seven of the most remarkable and unusual ones.
- Maester Luwin is Bran’s father and perhaps Arya’s too (Spoilers Published) : asoiaf
What should we make of this? It doesn’t seem like Greenbeard has any reason to lie. Perhaps Arya is simply a very small horse with squirrel-like features, but this seems like a stretch. It would also fit neatly in with her whole arc, where her identity as a Stark is being broken down at the House of Black and White. Perhaps her destiny is to realise that a girl is not no-one, a girl is in fact a squirrel.
