There are many things we know are bad for us, and some things we thought that are bad for us that are actually good for us. However, there are also quite a few things out there that we thought were perfectly normal, okay things to do, that are actually doing us harm. Listed in the article are ten ways we are hurting ourselves without even knowing it.

Disentangling photons and atoms to keep quantum systems clean

Disentangling photons and atoms to keep quantum systems clean | curating your interests | Scoop.it

In quantum physics, the divisions between object and observer—the systems and environment—become blurred. Because any measuring device is governed by the laws of quantum mechanics, the act of measurement involves an interaction between two quantum systems. The exact mechanisms by which this works are still unclear in many instances, but much of the quasi-mystical language once used to describe quantum mechanics has given way to precise scientific descriptions.
One remaining frontier is comprehension of how systems gradually lose coherence via interactions with their environment, which prevents their usefulness in quantum computing. A new set of experiments by Yinnon Glickman, Shlomi Kotler, Nitzan Akerman, and Roee Ozeri revealed part of the mechanism by which environment disrupts quantum systems: photons. They found that photons that interacted with a quantum system can end up correlated with the system's state, the hallmark of entanglement. By careful preparation of the atom's state, it may be possible to reduce the loss of quantum information to the environment, and thus extend the life of these systems.

From SearchEngineLand: "In the latest video from Google’s head of search spam, Matt Cutts, he addresses Google’s standards for manually removing spam from the Google index.


Matt outlines how Google makes sure they are consistent as possible when they take manual action. They include: Google has very clear webmaster guidelines


  • Most manual penalties are indeed “clear cut cases” and easy
  • Google has training sessions
  • Google has “shadowing” to train new team members
  • Google will always review new manual penalties set by new Googlers

All dreams appear impossible until somebody makes them happen.

A loud voice cannot compete with a clear voice, even if it's a whisper.


Gratitude is one of the sweet shortcuts to finding peace of mind and happiness inside. No matter what is going on outside of us, there's always something we could be grateful for.


The way we choose to see the world creates the world we see.
