Two local horses with a combined total of 12 minor placings finally broke through on Tuesday; fittingly at home at Hawkesbury.Image Neat (Bobby El Issa) had been placed at all five starts before winning the Polytrack Maiden Plate (1300m) for Scott Singleton, who naturally was pleased to see him greet the judge ahead of his rivals.Similarly, Peter Green was thrilled to score first up with Quite Unexpected (Grant Buckley) in the Schweppes Provincial Country Maiden Handicap (1300m), especially as he had registered seven placings. To make it an excellent day for Hawkesbury trainers, Jason Attard chipped in with Raise The Limit (Jay Ford), who landed the Robert Oatley Wines Benchmark 66 Handicap (1600m).The three winners boosted the number of winners to 59 prepared by Hawkesbury trainers this calendar year.Singleton took blinkers off Image Neat and brought him back in distance to post his first success. After trailing his four rivals throughout, El Issa eased him to the centre of the track in the straight and he justified his $2.70 favoritism by overhauling C’Est Davinchi ($2.80).Singleton says the jury is out as to whether the lightly raced four year old will manage longer distances: “The way he races you would think he will get further, but I’m not so sure,” he said.”But he did look a bit stronger parading prior to the race, so perhaps he will do so as he gets older.

Intentional misspelling. Wanted to know your collective thoughts and experiences (first hand ideally) with eyesight degradation. I’m 32 now, and only started wearing glasses about 2+ years ago. William Duckworth Well Tempered Clavier of minimalism. Elegant studies in proportion and sonority, beautifully played by pianist Neely Bruce. Each prelude grows from a single rhythmic figure, uses modal harmonies, raga style drones, and Medieval melodic outlines, and captures a particular but relatively brief mood, whether meditative, dance like, or song like.
Whole brain analyses revealed a significant interaction between verbal CMDT and sex on (a) regional homogeneity within an area from the left anterior temporal lobe (b) on the resting state functional connectivity (RSFC) between the mPFC and the left inferior frontal gyrus and (c) on fractional amplitude of low frequency fluctuations (fALFF) in several distinct areas, including the precuneus and middle cingulate gyrus, left middle temporal gyrus, right middle frontal gyrus, and cerebellum. These interactions were mediated by positive correlations in females and negative correlations in males. These findings suggest that greater CMDT in females is reflected by (a) regional coherence (regional homogeneity) of brain areas responsible for representing and combining concepts as well as (b) the efficient functional connection (RSFC) between the key areas for the default state of cognitive activity and speech production, and (c) greater spontaneous neural activity (fALFF) during the resting of brain areas involved in frontal lobe functions, default cognitive activities, and language functions.
