If you love perusing photography blogs, but get confused when photography terms such as depth of field, aperture or bokeh pop up, you are not alone. But as you move from hobbyist to enthusiast in the field of photography, it helps to know the technical terms that professionals use. This glossary of essential photography terms will help you take your knowledge, and your photos, to the next level. By tinyprints
Did you know that you're 30 times more likely to laugh if you're with somebody else than if you're alone? Cognitive neuroscientist Sophie Scott shares this and other surprising facts about laughter in this fast-paced, action-packed and, yes, hilarious dash through the science of the topic.
Un estudio de la Universidad Aalto, en Finlandia, reveló recientemente que las emociones pueden reflejarse en el cuerpo humano, es decir que pueden materializarse. Los investigadores comprobaron cómo las emociones más frecuentes liberan sensaciones intensas. Por ejemplo, la ansiedad puede ser experimentada como un dolor en el pecho, mientras que el enamoramiento puede desencadenar cálidas y placenteras sensaciones en todo el cuerpo.
Susan Blackmore studies memes: ideas that replicate themselves from brain to brain like a virus. She makes a bold new argument: Humanity has spawned a new kind of meme, the teme, which spreads itself via technology -- and invents ways to keep itself alive...
- Steve Paulson: So, everything in culture that we copy is a meme?
- Blackmore: Yes. Now, you may go, "Oh, well, that means everything!" But actually, not everything in your mind, not everything you do is mimetic. You have in your own mind lots of ideas that you make up yourself and are never copied, you didn't get them from anybody else, and they never get passed on...
First coined by Richard Dawkins in The Selfish Gene, a meme is any idea, behavior, or skill that can be transferred from one person to another by imitation: stories, fashions, inventions, recipes, songs, ways of plowing a field or throwing a baseball or making a sculpture.
The meme is also one of the most important--and controversial--concepts to emerge since The Origin of the Species appeared nearly 150 years ago.
por Carlos Nava Condarco - Hay diferencia importante de grado entre el Temor y el Miedo. Y cuando se trata de la posibilidad de Perder, el hombre tiene esto último, nada menos. Esta actitud no es producto de algo que tenga poca importancia, el miedo a Perder es un reflejo del carácter de las personas, de la visión que tienen de la vida y de sí mismos. Este miedo gobierna a la gente y la inhabilita para progresar, la aleja, como pocas cosas, de la prosperidad.

Over at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, also known as DARPA, there are some pretty amazing (and often top-secret) things going on. But one notable component of a DARPA project was revealed by a Defense Department official at a recent forum, and it is the stuff of science fiction movies. According to DARPA Director Arati Prabhakar, a paralyzed woman was successfully able use her thoughts to control an F-35 and a single-engine Cessna in a flight simulator.
It's just the latest advance for one woman, 55-year-old Jan Scheuermann, who has been the subject of two years of groundbreaking neurosignaling research. First, Scheuermann began by controlling a robotic arm and accomplishing tasks such as feeding herself a bar of chocolate and giving high fives and thumbs ups. Then, researchers learned that -- surprisingly -- Scheuermann was able to control both right-hand and left-hand prosthetic arms with just the left motor cortex, which is typically responsible for controlling the right-hand side. After that, Scheuermann decided she was up for a new challenge, according to Prabhakar.
"Jan decided that she wanted to try flying a Joint Strike Fighter simulator," Prabhakar said, prompting laughter from the crowd at the New America Foundation's Future of War forum. "So Jan got to fly in the simulator."
Unlike pilots who use the simulator technology for training, Scheuermann wasn't thinking about controlling the plane with a joystick. She thought about flying the plane itself -- and it worked. "In fact," Prabhakar noted, "for someone who's never flown -- she's not a pilot in real life -- she's in there flying a simulator directly from neurosignaling."
Scheuermann has been paralyzed since 2003 because of a neurodegenerative condition. In 2012, she agreed to be fitted with two probes on the surface of her brain in the motor cortex area responsible for right hand and arm movements. In the last two years, she has tolerated those probes better than expected; as a result, she's been the subject of increasingly sophisticated experiments in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and DARPA's Revolutionizing Prosthetics program, to determine just how much she can do simply by thinking about it.
Marshall beach, San Francisco I originally planned to shoot the bridge at the end of the beach but totally forgot to check the tide level. I ended up staying here and captured the tide motions instead.
