The cause of narcolepsy is not known; however, scientists have made progress toward identifying genes strongly associated with the disorder. These genes control the production of chemicals in the brain that may signal sleep and awake cycles. Some experts think narcolepsy may be due to a deficiency in the production of a chemical called hypocretin by the brain. In addition, researchers have discovered abnormalities in various parts of the brain involved in regulating REM sleep. These abnormalities apparently contribute to symptom development. According to experts, it is likely narcolepsy involves multiple factors that interact to cause neurological dysfunction and REM sleep disturbances.

Burt Reynolds dies at 82: Stars react

Iconic actor Burt Reynolds has died of a cardiac arrest at the age of 82. Celebrities took to social media to remember the star.

Burt Reynolds was one of my heroes. He was a trailblazer. He showed the way to transition from being an athlete to being the highest paid actor, and he always inspired me. He also had a great sense of humor - check out his Tonight Show clips. My thoughts are with his family.— Arnold (@Schwarzenegger) September 6, 2018— Dolly Parton (@DollyParton) September 6, 2018

Sad to hear Burt Reynolds has died. Man.. I grew up watching Cannonball Run.. Smokey and the Bandit... Stroker Ace and so many others. He had a swagger and a charm that I really enjoyed. Boogie Nights is one of my fav films. #RIP— Dane Cook (@DaneCook) September 6, 2018

“There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade away. They stay alive, even forty years later. My years with Burt never leave my mind. He will be in my history and my heart, for as long as I live. Rest, Buddy.” -Sally Field on #BurtReynolds (📷 Getty Images)

Next poser project: GTA V poster girl

I have pretty much most of what is needed for this image it won’t be exact for copyright reasons, but i do have a phone prop, her pose don’t seem too difficult, i have the blond hair and the bikini i could make or find, the only issue is a model that looks like her so here we go. Challenge started.....


Ok got my 3 images from google set up, since this is a poser project the images have to be real so it looks like a lifelike scene.


ok images are positioned, now to do some magic photo editing.


changed out the ferris wheel image for another one with a pier lol otherwise the image is coming along nicely.


little cosmetic changes on the image and some blending its looking good


taking a break......

OK back and pissed, just had a quick surge brownout and my router was factory reset and i lost my work i just did with this project, i will attempt to recover it but the file is saying its corrupt, even on a surge protector it got my laptop.

I recovered the file and well kinda decided I’m gonna go with a comic look so heres the background right now may change before I’m done with the model, I’m picky


GTA V finally hit 200, now time to slow down on this damn game lol

This is what all these hours get you
