ŁUKASZ KWIATEK: Od czego lekarzem jest psychiatra? Od umysłu, mózgu, ducha? PROF. DOMINIKA DUDEK: Od człowieka. A ten człowiek jest jednością, czy dostrzegasz w nim jakiś dualizm? Nie da się w ten sposób podzielić człowieka: to jest ciało, a tutaj mamy psychikę. Człowiek jest jednością. Ale jeśli złamałem nogę, to psychoterapia nie złagodzi mojego bólu. Jest coś takiego jak próg tolerancji bólu, czyli takie jego natężenie, które człowiek odbiera jako nie do wytrzymania. Psychoterapią nie wyleczę więc rany pooperacyjnej czy złamania nogi, ale mogę zmniejszyć poziom cierpienia. Jak to możliwe? Obecnie wiemy, że psychoterapia powoduje zmiany w mózgu. Psychiatrii jest bliżej do psychologii czy neurologii? Tradycyjnie neurologia zajmuje się schorzeniami, w których występują zmiany organiczne: udar, guz, uraz, zanik itd.

Czy to oznacza, że psychiatrię można zredukować do biochemii mózgu? Zdecydowanie nie. Dlaczego? Ale czy uda się zachować tożsamość tej jednostki? Pytasz, czy istnieje dusza? PROF. NASA Has Compiled a List of the Best Air-Cleaning Plants for Your Home - My Modern Met. Many of us spend most of our time indoors, so it’s important to cultivate a space that’s a healthy one. A simple—and beautiful—way to do this is through houseplants; they add some green to your home while being an effective way to purify the air.

NASA hardly seems like the organization that would give us insight into these types of plants, but in the late 1980s, the US government agency collaborated with the Associated Contractors of America (ALCA) to come up with a list of the most beneficial flora for your home. Their informative Clean Air study found that some plants, more than others, could naturally filter harmful chemicals and help mitigate the effects they have on humans. So, what are the best air-cleaning plants? Love the Garden created a helpful infographic that will tell you which house plants are best and what chemicals they filter: With some help from these plants, your air can be cleaner and healthier: via [Lifehacker, Freshome]

Morrissey: 50 Geeky Things You Never Knew About The Smiths Icon - NME. Nighty-Night, Kids! Ten Children’s Movies That Scared Us Silly. If you’re a kid of the ’80s and ’90s like I and pretty much all of the writers here at Nerdist are, then there is one thing we can all agree on with regards to our childhoods: they were scary as sh*t! Everything was made to terrify us back then. Kids now have it easy (says the 30 year old man sounding like a 90 year old) with nothing meant to scare or disturb them at all, but when we were all youngins, the movies marketed to kids were full of frightening imagery and themes and, frankly, I’m surprised any of us can go outside at all as a result.

But, because nostalgia, we still love them; it’s just boggling how many of these films were made. Below is an UNRANKED, CHRONOLOGICAL LIST of movies that were made for kids that make some horror movies look tame. (Your mileage may vary.) Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure (1977) I wasn’t alive for this movie’s initial release, but I certainly remember watching it at my grandparents’ house (my grandma taped it off of PBS at some point). Revealing Portraits of Heavily Tattooed People Who Normally Cover Their Whole Bodies. For many people, their skin is a canvas on which to display beautiful body art. Some folks are satisfied with one or two tattoos, but others keep going until entire areas of their body are camouflaged in colorful ink.

British photographer Alan Powdrill documents these brazen bodies in COVERED, an homage to those willing to go to the tattooing extreme. His series features two images per person: one where they’re bundled head-to-toe, and another where they’re showing off their complex tapestry of tattoos. The revealing photographs demonstrate the complexity of human identity.

Powdrill met COVERED‘s subjects at tattoo conferences and on social media. COVERED will be on view at Mother London starting November 11. Above: “My tattoos are part of who I am and I’ll always love my bodysuit now and when I’m 80. “I was 17. “I was 51 when I started and my father was already dead and my mum didn’t say anything as she was in the early stages of dementia.” “Can’t say what age I’ll stop. This guy makes sweaters of places and then takes pictures of himself wearing the sweaters at those places. NASA Has Compiled a List of the Best Air-Cleaning Plants for Your Home - My Modern Met. A “Levitating” Turntable Is in the Works, So You Can Spin Records in Mid-Air. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to bring “the first levitating turntable” into production, as the Vinyl Factory notes. Mag-Lev Audio, a Slovenian company, is hoping to raise $300,000 to manufacture the machines, which are “designed for people who appreciate high quality sound and innovative design.”

The turntables will use a magnetic platter to suspend the vinyl record during playback, as the Slovenian Press Agency (STA) reports. The Kickstarter page claims, “By pushing the frontier of audio technology, we were able to integrate the uplifting experience of music into the turntable design itself, bringing the feeling of zero gravity into your living room.” The Kickstarter campaign ends November 21, and the first deliveries have an estimated August 2017 arrival. Mag-Lev says its product will be the “first levitating turntable,” but it may have some competition for that title.
