    The research itlsef with be valuable. I personally cannot see letting a pile of rats loose in a minefield as producing effective results. I guess we’ll find out.I can understand some protests against using animals of higher intellectual capacity in experiments (I suppose some of you are aware of the experiment the Russians did separating a dogs head completely from its body to see how long it could be kept alive ?) I believe that those conducting such experiments in the present attempt to make scientific/experiments procedures as painless as possible for the animal.Guess what. There are thousands of individuals around the world that are suffering from what they consider a sort of artificially induced schizophrenia. That is, they believe that they are being targeted remotely through the use of some technology that manipulates their behaviour via conduction of voices into their heads. I believe a percentage of these individuals are not crazy and speaking the truth. They tend to blame the US government for the most part. I (being Canadian) hope this is not the case and find it discouraging. I have had light conversations with Dr. Michael Persinger and Dr. Nick Begich on such activity. They refuse to refute the possibility, yet are essentially helpless in what they can do. To their credit, they have maintained open minds and are willing to discuss such exotic sounding possibilities/problems. Most experts simply assume the bio/chem model and discard these people tin-foil hat’ group of conspiracy lunatics.I follow Ray due to the fact he has conducted plenty of work on helping those with physical disabilities (a very noble act). I personally look forward to the future evolution of cognitive’ technologies as they progressively become reality (BCI etc). It could very well help this small minority of artificially schizophrenic’ individuals find some answers and possible solutions to the affliction they face.Interesting stuff Raymond. Keep it up.

    For seeds lower than 4 it’s pretty much a maettr of luck if your team ends up in the region closest to home. The committee does their best to place every team closest to their areas of natural interest as possible, especially for the top seeds, but have to follow other procedures in building the bracket such as making sure there are no more than two teams from a conference in one region and that teams from the same conference don’t meet before the regional finals. Ultimately, the goal is to have the bracket as balanced as possible considering the overall quality of all the teams and to have them play as close to home as possible for the sake of allowing the fanbase to travel to the games.

    May I use the image on my blog? On my non-profit’s web site, I write about housing iseuss, and am working on a big multi-part entry on post offices converted into other uses. I also grew up in Marblehead and remember going in to that post office when it *was* a post office if memory serves, it was converted in the mid-1980s. There are some free images of it, but yours is a nice one, and I plan to provide a link over to this page.David Smith
