Blue Lights Shown to Give a Brain Boost! But is a Better than Coffee? | Doctor Stu's Blog. Can anything possibly beat the first coffee of the day? It’s 6 am and the alarm sounds. Mornings aren’t a friendly place until you’ve had a coffee. Loathed by some but loved by many more, caffienated drinks are the world’s most popular drug. Effective as a stimulant, a mood-booster and an learning-enhancer, caffeine is an indispensable part of modern-day living for 90% of Westerners. Now it seems, there could be a new kid on the block that threatens to topple the office coffee machine. The Stimulating Effects of Blue Light In recent years, a flurry of discoveries have been made about the apparently wondrous effects of natural light: Good for health and well-being, I think we can all appreciate how a walk in the sun is good for lifting the spirits.

Doing what science does best, so-called ‘natural light’ has been dissected and analysed. PET Brain Scan of an Awake Brain: Blue Light of wavelength 460nm switches the brain into 'awake' mode Feel the power of the blue light... . Related Posts: Blue light has a dark side. Light at night is bad for your health, and exposure to blue light emitted by electronics and energy-efficient lightbulbs may be especially so. Until the advent of artificial lighting, the sun was the major source of lighting, and people spent their evenings in (relative) darkness. Now, in much of the world, evenings are illuminated, and we take our easy access to all those lumens pretty much for granted.

But we may be paying a price for basking in all that light. At night, light throws the body's biological clock—the circadian rhythm—out of whack. Sleep suffers. Worse, research shows that it may contribute to the causation of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. But not all colors of light have the same effect. Daily rhythms influenced by light Everyone has slightly different circadian rhythms, but the average length is 24 and one-quarter hours.

Overview Work in Artificial Intelligence (AI) has produced computer programs that can beat the world chess champion and defeat the best human players on the television quiz show Jeopardy. AI has also produced programs with which one can converse in natural language, including Apple's Siri. Our experience shows that playing chess or Jeopardy, and carrying on a conversation, are activities that require understanding and intelligence. Does computer prowess at challenging games and conversation then show that computers can understand and be intelligent? Will further development result in digital computers that fully match or even exceed human intelligence?

Searle argues that a good way to test a theory of mind, say a theory that holds that understanding can be created by doing such and such, is to imagine what it would be like to do what the theory says would create understanding. Thirty years later Searle 2010 describes the conclusion in terms of consciousness and intentionality: 2. 17.

First published Tue Aug 19, 2003; substantive revision Thu Nov 3, 2011 This entry concerns dualism in the philosophy of mind. The term ‘dualism’ has a variety of uses in the history of thought. In general, the idea is that, for some particular domain, there are two fundamental kinds or categories of things or principles.

In theology, for example a ‘dualist’ is someone who believes that Good and Evil—or God and the Devil—are independent and more or less equal forces in the world. Dualism contrasts with monism, which is the theory that there is only one fundamental kind, category of thing or principle; and, rather less commonly, with pluralism, which is the view that there are many kinds or categories.

In the philosophy of mind, dualism is the theory that the mental and the physical—or mind and body or mind and brain—are, in some sense, radically different kinds of thing. 1. 1.1 The Mind-Body Problem The mind-body problem is the problem: what is the relationship between mind and body? 2.

Death of Archimedes (Sources) But nothing afflicted Marcellus so much as the death of Archimedes, who was then, as fate would have it, intent upon working out some problem by a diagram, and having fixed his mind alike and his eyes upon the subject of his speculation, he never noticed the incursion of the Romans, nor that the city was taken. In this transport of study and contemplation, a soldier, unexpectedly coming up to him, commanded him to follow to Marcellus; which he declining to do before he had worked out his problem to a demonstration, the soldier, enraged, drew his sword and ran him through.

Others write that a Roman soldier, running upon him with a drawn sword, offered to kill him; and that Archimedes, looking back, earnestly besought him to hold his hand a little while, that he might not leave what he was then at work upon inconclusive and imperfect; but the soldier, nothing moved by his entreaty, instantly killed him.

Archimedes of Syracuse the Mathematician (1/2) Archimedes der Mathematiker Archidamos III, the King of Sparta (often wrongly used as an image of the Mathematician Archimedes) on the cover of a Japanese Basic Calculus book.

Archimedes of Syracuse (Αρχιμήδης ο Συρακούσιος) (287 – 212) BC, son of the astronomer Phidias (according to the text of the Sand Reckoner) worked as an "engineering consultant" to the king, inventing many devices for military defense of the city such as catapults, iron claws and also probably an odometer and planetaria. Most of all he was a mathematician and a mathematical physicist.

Timeline: Archimedes and contemporary ancient scientists from He was killed according to a legend by a Roman soldier in 212 BC. In dividing volumes and areas into the sum of a large number of individual pieces Archimedes was essentially using the calculus 2000 years before Newton (1643 - 1727) and Leibniz (1646 – 1716).

A mortgage is usually the single greatest monthly expense any family will ever face. At a time when a 7% mortgage on an "average" $290,000 hypothetical Chicagoland house with 20% down costs $1,544, the thought of paying under $500 a month is nothing more than a pleasant dream for the vast majority of home owners.

Yet, there are many ways to bring that mortgage payment down. All of them are a bit strange and would require some definite rethinking on the part of the home owner as it would likely severely change their lifestyles, but as the old saying goes "change is good!

Quora. Pontus. History[edit] The Amazons were an all female tribe of warriors, well known in Greek Mythology. They are said to have lived mainly in Pontus with some also living in Taurica (see Crimea). Pontus became important as a bastion of Byzantine Greek and Greek Orthodox civilization and attracted Greeks from all backgrounds (scholars, traders, mercenaries, refugees) from all over Anatolia and the southern Balkans, from the Classical and Hellenistic periods into the Byzantine and Ottoman.

These Greeks of Pontus are generally referred to as Pontic Greeks, while eastern Pontic Greeks of Georgia and the former Russian Caucasus province of Kars Oblast (in present-day northeastern Turkey) are often called Caucasus Greeks.

A grammar and a dictionary have been produced by a Dutch missionary linguist. Living[edit] The majority of the Korowai clans live in tree houses on their isolated territory.[3] Since 1980 some have moved into the recently opened villages of Yaniruma at the Becking River banks (Kombai-Korowai area), Mu, and Mbasman (Korowai-Citak area). Economy[edit] The Korowai are hunter-gatherers and horticulturalists who practice shifting cultivation. Some Korowai have since the early 1990s generated moderate cash income by working with tour companies selling tours into the Korowai region.
