(CBS News) The Shroud of Turin has intrigued believers and non-believers alike for centuries. On this Easter Sunday morning our Cover Story is reported by Martha Teichner: It's possibly the greatest "What if ... " in the world. What if the Shroud of Turin really is the burial cloth Jesus was wrapped in . . . and the faint imprint on it, the image of a man who has been tortured and crucified, really is Christ himself? The last time the Shroud was on view, for six weeks in 2010, more than two million people saw it, even though in 1988, after a carbon dating test, it was declared a medieval fake - dating from between 1260 and 1390. The story was supposed to be over. And tell that to scholars who think the carbon dating results were just plain wrong, among them art historian Thomas de Wesselow.

De Wesselow - an agnostic, originally a skeptic about the Shroud - has just published a provocative new book about in which he concludes it's genuine. Just coincidence? "So that is at least plausible? " Home Page. The Muscle-up by Greg Glassman. The muscle-up is astonishingly difficult to perform but unrivaled in building upper body strength, writes Coach Greg Glassman. The muscle-up gets you from under things to on them. It can be a critical survival skill. We do our muscle-ups from rings chiefly because that’s the hardest place possible. From a normal grip, roll the meat of the hand over the ring, leaving the thumb on the starting side until the wrist opposite the thumb is in full contact with the ring. This is a false grip. Assuming the grip is O.K., a common barrier to the muscle-up Is not being strong enough. If you can do the pull-ups and dips, your grip is good (you’re getting bruised wrists) and you’re still unable to get above rings, then you’re either letting the rings wander away from your body or you aren’t trying hard enough.

The scientific, legal, and ethical obstacles The 50,000-year-old skull of a Neanderthal from the site of Shanidar in Iran (top) has a prominent browridge and more projecting face than the 40,000-year-old Homo sapiens skull found at Pestera cu Oase in Romania. (Erik Trinkaus) If Neanderthals ever walk the earth again, the primordial ooze from which they will rise is an emulsion of oil, water, and DNA capture beads engineered in the laboratory of 454 Life Sciences in Branford, Connecticut.

Over the past 4 years those beads have been gathering tiny fragments of DNA from samples of dissolved organic materials, including pieces of Neanderthal bone. Genetic sequences have given paleoanthropologists a new line of evidence for testing ideas about the biology of our closest extinct relative. The first studies of Neanderthal DNA focused on the genetic sequences of mitochondria, the microscopic organelles that convert food to energy within cells.

More than a decade after their first attempt, a team of Japanese scientists have announced that they will aim to clone a woolly mammoth in the next five years. Led by Akira Iritani, the team plans on taking mammoth DNA extracted from preserved corpses found in Siberia and inserting it into African elephant eggs that have had their DNA removed. If the insertion is successful, the eggs will be placed in an adult elephant and brought to term. Kinki University’s Faculty of Biology Oriented Science and Technology tried to do exactly this three times previously, starting in 1997.

Yet damage to mammoth cells due to extreme cold prevented their success. Now, another Japanese scientist, Teruhiko Wakayama of RIKEN, has developed a technique that allowed him to clone a mouse from a body frozen for 16 years. African elephants will provide the means to recreate the Mammoth. INTP Profile. Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving by Joe Butt Profile: INTP Revision: 3.2 Date of Revision: 6 Aug 2010 INTPs are pensive, analytical folks. They may venture so deeply into thought as to seem detached, and often actually are oblivious to the world around them. Precise about their descriptions, INTPs will often correct others (or be sorely tempted to) if the shade of meaning is a bit off.

While annoying to the less concise, this fine discrimination ability gives INTPs so inclined a natural advantage as, for example, grammarians and linguists. INTPs are relatively easy-going and amenable to almost anything until their principles are violated, about which they may become outspoken and inflexible. A major concern for INTPs is the haunting sense of impending failure. Mathematics is a system where many INTPs love to play, similarly languages, computer systems--potentially any complex system. INTPs in the main are not clannish. Whether or not there should be such a group, Famous INTPs: U.S. 00tx6f3y-1024x719.jpg (JPEG Image, 1024 × 719 pixels) - Scaled (81%) Untitled.

History of Psychology: A New Twist in the Case of Little Albert. In 1920, behaviorist John Watson and his graduate student-turned-wife Rosalie Rayner conducted a conditioning experiment that everyone who’s ever taken an intro psychology course knows all too well: They taught 9-month-old Albert to fear a variety of stimuli that were seemingly innocuous to him from the start.

The most famous example involved a rat. When a rat was first placed alongside Little Albert, he appeared interested and unafraid. When the researchers paired the rat with a loud noise, over time, Albert got scared. In fact, Albert would start crying at the mere sight of the rat, even though the noise was gone. It turned out that Albert’s newfound fear also extended beyond the rat. Watson used this experiment to substantiate his theory that babies were blank states, and the environment was powerful in influencing them.

But no one knew Little Albert’s identify or his fate… until a few years ago. According to a 2010 article in Monitor on Psychology, for seven years, Hall P. HOME. Philosophy and the Love of Wisdom « School of Philosophy Auckland. There are many reasons why people enjoy the study of philosophy. Philosophy gives us the opportunity to think more deeply about the subjects that really matter to us: e.g. What does it all mean? Who am I? What is my part in all this? Philosophy deals with the big ideas, which govern human life. Philosophy can simplify, clarify, enrich and provide direction to our lives, especially when other areas of life fall into a state of uncertainty or doubt. Ultimately, Philosophy can raise our awareness, to enable us to see things for what they are and bring us closer to our true selves.

Philosophy means: Philo = love of Sophia = Wisdom But what is “wisdom”? The dictionary definition of wisdom is ‘experience and knowledge together with the power of applying them practically. However in our case as philosophers, the idea here is not to be a wise doctor, or a wise anything else, but to be wise people.
