Betty Who - Runaways
Betty Who fans, rejoice! Her debut album, Take Me When You Go, was released this October. Following two EPs, this synth-powered, dreamy album is balanced against Who’s more playful style, like in the nostalgic hit, “Somebody Loves You” and pop-y songs like “Runaways”.
We love this song in particular because the carefree, devil-may-care lyrics blend perfectly with this edgier track. It’s light and uplifting, cheeky and somber, and confident all at once. It takes all the catchiness of a Katy Perry song but fuller. Who adds beautiful vocals, unique, lush instrumentals and a little bit of electronica to create a modern day pop song.

Socioeconomic status and structural brain development
Recent advances in neuroimaging methods have made accessible new ways of disentangling the complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors that influence structural brain development. In recent years, research investigating associations between socioeconomic status (SES) and brain development have found significant links between SES and changes in brain structure, especially in areas related to memory, executive control, and emotion. This review focuses on studies examining links between structural brain development and SES disparities of the magnitude typically found in developing countries. We highlight how highly correlated measures of SES are differentially related to structural changes within the brain.
Nothing stays the same
and life gets the best of us.
Things happen that we never expect would
and things fall apart when we think they’ll stay together.
And I’m tired of trying to control something I know I cannot
so I am done trying."
Poulnabrone Dolmen, Ireland
Poulnabrone Dolmen (meaning “hole of the quern stones”) is a portal tomb in the Burren, County Clare, Ireland, dating back to the Neolithic period, probably between 4200 and 2900 BC.
The dolmen consists of a twelve-foot, thin, slab-like, tabular capstone supported by two slender portal stones, which support the capstone 1.8 m (6 ft) from the ground, creating a chamber in a 9 m (30 ft) low cairn. The cairn helped stabilize the tomb chamber, and would have been no higher during the Neolithic. The entrance faces north and is crossed by a low sill stone.
