Ike Cerrada's insight:

Is this really the biggest issue that Uganda should be dealing with right now? Is it so extremely important to go against innocent people whose only "fault" is to have a different sexual affinity than the majority of the population? Why not just let people do whatever they choose to do and keep on trying to improve the country where it really needs to be improved?

These kind of dreadful political decisions really horrify and outrage me.

Jung's Theory of Dreams

Jung's Theory of Dreams | Global issues and interests | Scoop.it

Why do we have dreams? Where do they originate? Do they have meaning? Are dreams of any value to us, or are they just so much nonsense? These questions have puzzled thinkers since the dawn of humanity. Every culture in the world has offered explanations. For instance, the Australian Aborigines believe that what we consider the realm of dreams is the real world (the Dreamtime), and the world we experience with our senses is a dream.

 

C.G. Jung put forth a theory of dreams which is quite popular today. Following in the footsteps of Sigmund Freud, Jung claimed that dream analysis is the primary way to gain knowledge of the unconscious mind. He says that the dream is a natural phenomenon which we can study, thereby gaining knowledge of the hidden part of our mind.... (Click here for more....)

3D-printed pizza – a quick and easy meal for astronuats?

3D-printed pizza – a quick and easy meal for astronuats? | Global issues and interests | Scoop.it

Snacking on a freshly-made pizza in outer space just got a whole lot closer thanks to Anjan Contractor's 3D pizza printer. Contractor, who won NASA's US$125,000 grant last year to create a 3D printer that could print food for astronauts on missions, has come out with a functional prototype.

The prototype prints the blocky pizza out in layers, as demonstrated in the video at the bottom of the page. While it's a tad messy, the end product, when cooked, looks fairly appetizing. Contractor plans to equip the 3D printer with food cartridges that last for 30 years.

Such a long shelf life is pretty much a necessity, since long-distance space missions could take several years. To make the pizza ingredients last, Contractor is investigating ways to remove all the moisture from them and reduce the proteins, carbs and nutrients into a powder form.

Contractor says that it only took 70 seconds to cook the pizza once it was printed out, in a comment on his Youtube page. If NASA implements the technology, astronauts will be able to get 3D-printed fast food in space, which should be a comfort, instead of having to rely solely on freeze-dried and canned foods.

Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, February 21, 11:00 AM

I loved this article - from the Nautilus magazine's issue on "Time" - the writer Jonathan Berger, Denning Family Provostial Professor in Music at Stanford University, uses the musical world and its constructs to look at the how we perceive time.  It's  pretty accessible but does get a bit technical (musically) at the end.  If you're into how we experience the world and have an appreciation of music - it's well worth a read. 

 

I too have a deep personal attachment to the piece of music he bases it around - Schubert's String Quintet in C Major.  I was fascinated to see how he explained the impact of the piece with theory.

Nice article and summary and pretty much sums up the whole approach behind music2work2. The bit that cracks me up is the fact that in many cases just having some kind of aural stimulation can achieve close to the effect of good instrumental background music. I did my undergrad thesis on the effect of sound on performance (using clear tones and reaction time boxes) and saw a direct relationship between performance improvement and the introduction of sound - you can read more about it here:
