20 Mule Team

Description: This photograph from the front cover of an issue of the Hexagon Journal displays the mock 20 mule team that stands outside of the Rio Tinto Borax Museum in Boron, California. The mule team depicts the original mode used to transport the chemical compound, borax, out of Death Valley between 1883 and 1888. A description of the photograph is shown on page 23 of the journal.

Ion Beam Analysis of Microcrystalline Quartz Artifacts from the Reed Mound Site, Delaware County, Oklahoma

Description: This paper from the 23rd Conference on Application of Accelerators in Research and Industry conference proceedings evaluates the potential of particle induced X-ray emission spectrometry as a tool for future Ozarks chert provenance studies based on its ability to facilitate discrimination of Ozarks chert materials from different geological formations and identification of discrete groups of artifacts from the same geological formation.

From neural and social cooperation to the global emergence of cognition

Description: This article elaborates on a discussion of the emergence of intelligence via criticality as a consequence of locality breakdown, by using criticality for the foundation of a novel generation of game theory making the local interaction between players yield long-range effects.
