Belgian prosecutors announced early Monday that police had detained 16 people in 22 raids but that Paris fugitive Salah Abdeslam was not among them. Despite the raids, authorities maintained their highest terror alert in the capital for a third straight day. On Monday, French President Hollande is scheduled to meet in Paris with British Prime Minister David Cameron and will travel to Washington and Moscow later in the week to try and bridge Obama and Putin against ISIS. France has extended a state of emergency for three months. Tom covers the entire European picture still rocked by last week’s terror attacks in Paris, and now the intensified showdown against ISIS.

Basically researchers at Kyoto University asked a few thousand people how happy they were, and who tended to experience more incidents of extreme happiness, then MRI’d everyone’s brains, and found that those that were happier all appeared to have a larger precuneus, a region in the medial parietal lobe that becomes active when experiencing consciousness. Now just having a large precuneus doesn’t guarantee happiness, but it appears to help immensely. In fact, meditation has shown to grow ones precuneus. Scientists are a ways away from figuring out what exactly it does to create happiness, but, well, it’s a start.
