Blasphemous posters hit New Zealand | Ads of the World I haven't seen too many atheists opening up food banks for the poor, maintaining religious based hospitals who routinely erase all charges for people who are uninsured and unable to pay, run hospices for AIDS patients (the Catholic Church was the first organization to do that), support summer camps for disadvantaged children, support volunteer medical clinics for the poor and uninsured, run counseling services for those folks unable to pay for therapy and/or counseling, maintain volunteer organizations run by various churches that help seniors and other financially disadvantaged people paint and repair their homes, install dead bolts, provide housekeeping services, cook food, visit and just talk to these very lonely, forgotten people etc... all for free. I belong to a local Catholic parish whose main mission is to the poor and disadvantaged, the homeless, the alcoholic and drug addicted, and the mentally ill.

Losing the Language of Happiness | Psychology Today If you haven’t read Daniel Everertt’s fabulous Don’t Sleep, There are Snakes about his work as a linguist in the Amazon—well, stop whatever you are doing, go directly to Amazon and enjoy. After 30 years living with and studying the Piraha, a tribe living in the Amazonian basin, Everett has concluded that neither Chomsky’s argument—that language is innate to humans and there are universal laws of grammar—and Skinner’s argument—that language is completely learned and genetics account for nothing—are correct. Instead, Everett posits that language and culture are completely intertwined and you cannot study one without the other. Furthermore, and this is where things get really interesting, Everett believes that grammar is significantly less important than culture-based meanings and constraints on talking” are the key. So what’s the big deal? Losing the Language of Happiness | Psychology Today

New Type of Ancient Human Found—Descendants Live Today? A previously unknown kind of human—the Denisovans—likely roamed Asia for thousands of years, probably interbreeding occasionally with humans like you and me, according to a new genetic study. In fact, living Pacific islanders in Papua New Guinea may be distant descendants of these prehistoric pairings, according to new analysis of DNA from a girl's 40,000-year-old pinkie bone, found in Siberian Russia 's Denisova cave. This "new twist" in human evolution adds substantial new evidence that different types of humans—so-called modern humans and Neanderthals , modern humans and Denisovans, and perhaps even Denisovans and Neanderthals—mated and bore offspring, experts say.

5 Simple Rules For Turning Your Cool Idea Into A Screenplay Your next stop is to start thinking about how to write "visually" and how to represent character without the benefit of the third person narrator. I'll talk about those things in another post, in a few days. The general rule of thumb here is to 'Show instead of tell'. Instead of Bob saying he feels depressed, show us in his mannerisms, the way he reacts to other characters, and his surroundings that he feels this way. 5 Simple Rules For Turning Your Cool Idea Into A Screenplay
To celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope's two decades in orbit, we've compiled 20 of our favorite Hubble photos in this collection. Hubble was launched April 24, 1990, aboard space shuttle Discovery, NASA said, noting Hubble's discoveries have revolutionized nearly all areas of current astronomical research, from planetary science to cosmology. Although the space telescope has had several technical problems, the space agency said Hubble scientists, engineers and NASA astronauts were able to upgrade the instrument and it now is 100 times more powerful than when it was launched. 20th anniversary of NASA's Hubble 20th anniversary of NASA's Hubble
TEL AVIV, Israel, July 29 (UPI) -- Scientists in Israel say they've identified a chemical in the human brain that helps brain cells store new memories and allows them to "stick." A study by researchers at Tel Aviv University says a natural molecule occurring in the brain, called Aminobutyric acid, could be the main factor in regulating how many new memories one can generate and permanently store, a university release said Thursday. Memories are stored in highly variable synaptic connections between neurons in the brain, study leader Dr. Inna Slutsky said, and the variability ultimately determines whether and how memories are stored. The key to the variability is the naturally occurring GABA, Slutsky said. Scientists find chemical 'memory' molecule Scientists find chemical 'memory' molecule
