Suzana Herculano-Houzel: What is so special about the human brain? | Video on TED.com

The human brain is puzzling -- it is curiously large given the size of our bodies, uses a tremendous amount of energy for its weight and has a bizarrely dense cerebral cortex. But: why?

#Recomiendo: Enfermera revela las cinco cosas que la gente más lamenta en su lecho de muerte

#Recomiendo: Enfermera revela las cinco cosas que la gente más lamenta en su lecho de muerte | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it

Durante muchos años he trabajado en cuidados paliativos. Mis pacientes eran los que habían ido a casa a morir. Algunos momentos increíblemente especiales fueron compartidos. Estuve con ellos durante las últimas tres a doce semanas de sus vidas.

 

La gente madura mucho cuando se enfrentan a su propia mortalidad. Aprendí a nunca subestimar la capacidad de una persona para crecer.  Algunos cambios fueron fenomenales. Cada uno de ellos experimentó una variedad de emociones, como es de esperarse, la negación, el miedo, el enojo, remordimiento, más negación y finalmente la aceptación. Sin embargo, cada paciente encontró su paz antes de partir, cada uno de ellos.

 

Cuando se le preguntó acerca de los arrepentimientos que tenían o cualquier cosa que haría de manera diferente, los temas comunes surgieron una y otra vez . Éstos son los cinco más comunes:

Mandela’s leadership lessons

Mandela’s leadership lessons | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it

 

It cannot be overstated just how important Mandela’s leadership was in steering South Africa away from civil war and into a democracy.

 

His particular style of leadership was fuelled by an innate inner strength, a deep sense of self-confidence and years of patience honed in an apartheid jail.

 

The characteristics that define Mandela, who was the right leader at the right time, ­provide clues for all of us on how to manage conflict, deal with enemies and play the long game:

 

 

<> Everyone’s welcome...

 

<> Listen and wait...

 

<> Sometimes though, go it alone...

 

<> First impressions count...

 

<> The media is not the enemy...

 

<> When it’s over, it’s over...

The SunGrazer Comet ISON is visible now.. Here you are A Timeline of this Comet's 'Dangerous' Journey

The SunGrazer Comet ISON is visible now.. Here you are A Timeline of this Comet's 'Dangerous' Journey | Music, Videos, Colours, Natural Health | Scoop.it

 

A comet’s journey through the solar system is perilous and violent. A giant ejection of solar material from the sun could rip its tail off.

 

Before it reaches Mars -- at some 230 million miles away from the sun -- the radiation of the sun begins to boil its water, the first step toward breaking apart.

 

And, if it survives all this, the intense radiation and pressure as it flies near the surface of the sun could destroy it altogether.

 

Predicted hour-by-hour position of Comet ISON in various instruments on one of NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory spacecraft between 1 a.m. EST on Nov. 26, 2013, and 7 p.m. EST on Nov. 29, 2013. The blue field of view is from the outer coronagraph and green from the inner coronagraph. Image Credit: NASA/STEREO/Goddard Space Flight Center 

Right now, Comet ISON is making that journey.

 

It began its trip from the Oort cloud region of our solar system and is now travelling toward the sun.

 

The comet will reach its closest approach to the sun on Thanksgiving Day -- Nov. 28, 2013 -- skimming just 730,000 miles above the sun’s surface.

 

If it comes around the sun without breaking up, the comet will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere with the naked eye, and from what we see now, ISON is predicted to be a particularly bright and beautiful comet.

 

Cataloged as C/2012 S1, Comet ISON was first spotted 585 million miles away in September 2012.

 

This is its very first trip around the sun, which means it is still made of pristine matter from the earliest days of the solar system’s formation, its top layers never having been lost by a trip near the sun.

 

Scientists will point as many ground-based observatories as they can and at least 15 space-based assets towards the comet along the way, in order to learn more about this time capsule from when the solar system first formed.

 

Even if the comet does not survive, tracking its journey will help scientists understand what the comet is made of, how it reacts to its environment, and what this explains about the origins of the solar system.

 

Closer to the sun, watching how the comet and its tail interact with the vast solar atmosphere can teach scientists more about the sun itself.

 

NASA has initiated a Comet ISON Observing Campaign to facilitate a massive global observation campaign incorporating both space-based and ground-based telescopes and encouraging citizen scientists and both professional and amateur astronomers to participate.

 

 

Highly Supportive:
