"The human DNA is a biological internet and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more..." --IntegrativeNutrition.com
Most of us tend to order a pizza based on the amount we plan to eat--and there's nothing wrong with that--but if you're trying to make your dollar stretch as far as it can, your best bet is to just order the biggest one you can buy. Why? The increase in size to cost always comes out in your favor. Here's why.
Olgy Gary's insight:
Just in case I needed one more reason to order the larger pizza... here is an engineer's explanation why it makes sense for me to do so. :-)
Hey, look! It's an awkwardly endearing photo of three men trying to squeeze into the smartphone camera lens.
Of course, those aren't just any three men. That's Bill Nye (as in "The Science Guy") on the left, President Obama, and astrophysicist/author/all around genius Neil deGrasse Tyson on the right.
The science aficionados were attending the first-ever White House Film Fest, created for K-12 students, Friday. Between screenings for the 16 short films, the threesome managed to squeeze in a little candid-camera time as well. And aren't we all the better for it.
By taking simple sewing thread and fishing wire and giving it a twist, scientists have created artificial muscle that’s 100 times stronger than human or animal sinew. The invention, described in the journal Science, could be useful for prosthetic limbs, humanoid robots, implanted medical devices and even wearable clothing.
While filming the award-winning documentary Chasing Ice, two of the filmmakers record a large chunk of glacier breaking off and sinking into the ocean. Not only that, but it was the single largest calving event that has ever been recorded.
Particle Fever follows the inside story of six brilliant scientists seeking to unravel the mysteries of the universe, documenting the successes and setbacks in the planet’s most significant and inspiring scientific breakthrough.
Using a robotic lander, scientists have captured the first-ever footage of marine life at the bottom of the previously unexplored New Hebrides trench in the Pacific. At depths reaching 4.5 miles, the ecology was unlike anything the marine biologists had ever seen.
With his new film, Her, director Spike Jonze paints an unconventional picture of love and technology. Here, he talks about the process of designing...
Olgy Gary's insight:
Teressa Iezzi starts her review of "HER" with words I totally agree with: "When we speak, cinematically, about technology and our future, it is often in menacing tones. Our future movie selves tend to get malevolent things implanted in our bodies..." And I often wonder why we do this?!?!? The future, for me, is literally "as bright as the promises of God!" The future is there for us to own and shape and live it to the fullest! The trailer of "HER" makes me want to go see the movie. :-)
Intelligent machines that not only think for themselves but also actively learn are the vision of researchers who have been co-ordinating the European Union research project "Brain-i-Nets" (Novel Brain Inspired Learning Paradigms for Large-Scale Neuronal Networks). The scientists want to design a new generation of neuro-computers based on the principles of calculation and learning mechanisms found in the brain, and at the same time gain new knowledge about the brain's learning mechanisms.
A hover bike resembling the ones from ‘Return of the Jedi’ has been developed by a US firm, bringing science fiction to life. California-based firm Aerofex created an aerial vehicle with two ducted rotors instead of wheels, which originates from a design abandoned in the 1960s because of stability and rollover problems. The aerospace firm…
Last night, a giant asteroid was supposed to streak by the Earth, close enough for us to catch a glimpse as it zipped by. Except it never showed, and now astronomers say they have no idea just where the 900-foot asteroid has gone.
