The principle Feynman and Einstein could not find was discovered -Why Faraday's law and Lorentz force create the same electromotive force?-
Hiroyasu Koizumi, Associate Professor, Center for Computational Sciences
Read from here:

The Faraday’s induction formula (flux rule) of electromagnetism says that the electromotive force (emf) created in a conducting circuit is equal to the rate at which the magnetic flux through the conducting circuit changes as it is written on a high school text in physics.

Autism spectrum disorder is a “connectopathy” -Toward the development of biomarkers in the early diagnosis of ASD and early medical treatments-
Takao Yamasaki, Research Fellow, Department of Clinical Neurophysiology, Neurological Institute, Graduate School of Medical Sciences / Shozo Tobimatsu, Professor, Department of Clinical Neurophysiology, Neurological Institute, Graduate School of Medical Sciences
Read from here:

A research group of Dr. Yamasaki and Prof. Tobimatsu of Department of Clinical Neurophysiology reported the possible mechanism of atypical visual perception in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Serial studies on visual evoked potentials, event-related potentials, and diffusion tensor imaging conducted in their laboratory have demonstrated complex alterations (impairment and enhancement) of visual and attentional networks in ASD. They proposed that the “connectopathy” underlies the pathophysiological mechanism of ASD.

A Kyoto University-based team has unraveled the mystery of gamma-ray emission cascades caused by lightning strikes.

Lightning proven to release gamma-rays and antimatter
Teruaki Enoto, Associate Professor, Hakubi Program
Read from here:

In a collaborative study appearing in Nature, researchers from Kyoto describe how gamma rays from lightning react with the air to produce radioisotopes and even positrons — the antimatter equivalent of electrons. This unique project leveraged the power of crowdfunding, building a network of committed citizen scientists. Read more in external link

Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest: From an Anti-War Message to the Recognition of a Cultural Tradition
Mauro Neves, Professor, Faculty of Foreign Studies Department of Luso-Brazillian Studies
Read from here:

Croatia, together with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovenia, was one of the first Balkan countries to join the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) after the Yugoslavian Wars that lead to the disintegration of Yugoslavia, the only country from East Europe to have taken part at the ESC up to 1992. These three Balkan new nations – originated from the Yugoslavian disintegration started in 1991 – joined the ESC in 1993, in the middle of the Bosnian War(1992-1995).
