How to stop climate change? Nationalise the oil companies | Owen Jones
Extinction Rebellion got the ball rolling, but more radical action is now necessary if humanity is to surviveIf only the Daily Express was right. That is not a sentence I ever expected to type. “Extinction Rebellion protests have WORKED as MPs succumb to calls for change”,bellowed the rightwing rag. Alas, the government has not capitulated to demands to declare a climate emergency, let alone to decarbonise the British economy by 2025. But Extinction Rebellion has retaught a lesson every generation must learn: that civil disobedience works. Amid the spluttering of obnoxious news presenters, it has forced the exi...

Americans Are Some of the Most Stressed-Out People in the World, a New Global Survey Says
Americans are some of the most stressed-out people in the world, according to Gallup’s annual Global Emotions report. For the report, Gallup polled about 1,000 adults in countries around the world last year about the emotions they’d experienced the day before the survey.

Architecture of the heteromeric GluA1/2 AMPA receptor in complex with the auxiliary subunit TARP {gamma}8
AMPA-type glutamate receptors (AMPARs) mediate excitatory neurotransmission and are central regulators of synaptic plasticity, a molecular mechanism underlying learning and memory. Although AMPARs act predominantly as heteromers, structural studies have focused on homomeric assemblies. Here, we present a cryo–electron microscopy structure of the heteromeric GluA1/2 receptor associated with two transmembrane AMPAR regulatory protein (TARP) 8 auxiliary subunits, the principal AMPAR complex at hippocampal synapses. Within the receptor, the core subunits arrange to give the GluA2 subunit dominant control of gating. This ...
