Our Brain Is Better at Remembering Where to Find Brownies Than Cherry Tomatoes

The human brain is hardwired to map our surroundings. This trait is called spatial memory—our ability to remember certain locations and where objects are in relation to one another. New findings published today in Scientific Reports suggest that one major feature of our spatial recall is efficiently locating high-calorie, energy-rich food. The study’s authors believe human spatial memory ensured that our hunter-gatherer ancestors could prioritize the location of reliable nutrition, giving them an evolutionary leg up.

In the study, researchers at Wageningen University & Research in the Netherlands observed 512 participants follow a fixed path through a room where either eight food samples or eight food-scented cotton pads were placed in different locations. When they arrived at a sample, the participants would taste the food or smell the cotton and rate how much they liked it. Four of the food samples were high-calorie, including brownies and potato chips, and the

Manchester City cannot use injuries and fitness problems as an excuse at a relentless Leeds United on Saturday, according to Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola is still smarting at the manner of last weekend’s galling 5-2 home defeat by Leicester City and can ill-afford another slip up at Elland Road.

The start of their season has been hampered by muscle fatigue leading to injuries and players in the ‘red zone’ deemed not fit enough to take part in matches.

Hospital Giant HCA To Return $6 Billion In CARES Act Money

The large hospital operator HCA Healthcare Thursday said it will “return, or repay early” about $6 billion in federal stimulus money from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as CARES.

The CARES Act was designed to provide relief to providers of medical care who gain reimbursement even if patients have no health insurance coverage. Congress said the money can be used for costs related to treating Covid-19 patients or providers can use it to reimburse for lost revenue related to the pandemic.

In HCA’s
