Earlier this week, unaired episodes of some of the premium cable network’s other shows, including the Duplass Brothers’ anthology show Room 104, were leaked right away. One of the tv shows is the world’s no. one rated show “Game of thrones”.
The HBO hackers previously threatened to release additional content this Sunday (6 August), but it seems this was brought forward a few days. There is speculation on The Verge and elsewhere that the leak originates from HBO distribution partner Star India, and is not related to the HBO hack.
Here’s the link where you can watch the episode online:

YES! This may sound absurd. But lies can be classified in a few types.
Lies of commission: This involves fabrication of a fact and often contradictory information is given out. In other words, falsifying information with intent to make the listener do or not do something the liar intends. Such lies are told to divert the receiver from the truth of information by making them to believe that what is presented to them is the only truth. However all lies of commission are not intended under crimes or intend to cause harm. The harmless lies we tell children to instill a good thought or behavior are lies of commission. Advertising spins and propaganda are also lies of commission.
Lies of omission: When the original information is withheld or truth is hidden, lies of omission occur. Most often denial is resorted to. This allows the liar to escape broaching the truth, evade it and justify their actions. Giving false information in propaganda, a car salesman giving partly true detail omitting the glitches fall under this type of lie. It is found that passive aggressive people tend to resort to these types of lies as they have escape routes to avoid discussing the original truth.

What is a lie?
A lie is a piece of information or fact which is withheld from the receiver with or without the intention to harm them.
Though encountered as a part of psychological diagnosis, lying had not been studied in much depth until a few years ago. But now NeuroScientists want to map the regions in the brain that get activated when a person lies. They want to study how the brain centers respond under different condition of lying/ situation and that if there is any kind of changes in the neural networks in the brains. They have been under great favor of lie detection equipment. Lie detection experiments and studies find use in not only understanding the mind of the liar but also find an important place in the investigation of crimes under judicial system.
With the help of lie detectors scientists are able to map different regions of brain and study their behavior during the process of lying. An imaging method called as the fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) is used to map the brain’s network in live action, as it processes memories, action, behaviors, emotions etc. fMRI is only a few decades old but has taken huge strides in the clinical studies of neuroscience. It is also opening windows in the field of security, judicial systems and many more.
Scientists have been trying hard to understand how the brain works when we lie. By analyzing the changes that take place in the brain when we deceive, scientists hope to not only learn about the process of lying but also how to detect it.
Role of brain centers
The limbic system of our brain is a group of complex networks of structures, comprising chiefly the hypothalamus, amygdala, hippocampus, just under the cerebrum. It is with the help of this limbic system we are able to experience emotions, senses, and regulate behavior and long term memory.
ON A FEW EXPERIMENTS PERFORMED:
Scientits say, “in order to tell a lie, the brain had to first stop itself from telling the truth and then formulate the lie. As our brain works at phenomenal rate this gap can be clearly marked.

To demonstrate the viability of what they proposed the scientists coded the the black and white pictures of two great scientists Albert Einstein and Erwin Schrodinger in a diamond through a laser coding technique. This information, they say, can last forever provided the diamond is kept in dark and not exposed to light. “Every time we shine a laser on the diamond, there’s a possibility that the NV either cpture or release an electron. This is the reason why the information gets degraded if read out multiple times.” Says Dr. Dhomker.
However, researchers have found a way to circumvent loss of information. Using low intensity red laser could led the information loss to negligible and even if the information gets degraded, it could be imprinted to the same diamond without any damage to the diamond crystal. While testing long term data storage in diamonds scientists could write, erase and rewrite new codes without any change to the diamond. Whats even more interesting is that the scientists could store multiple sequence of information in different parts of the same crystals without any cross talks or damage to the codes. Information can be stored in 3-dimensional as opposed to the current technology.
The quantum of the information that can be stored in restricted space is very large as compared to the amount of data that can be coded to a DVD drive. Each letter of bit of digital information is about 1000 times larger than a single code point in a diamond crystal. This creates a monumental difference in the compactness that can be achieved when coding data in a diamond. Of course the present day computing will have to make some significant changes and moulded to fit the new technology but it could catapult us into a vastly fascinating future.
And rest assured the information will last forever! IMAGINE A STORAGE DEVICE WORTH MILLIONS…
