Apostolic Journey - Cuba: Meeting with families at Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral (Santiago, 22 September 2015)

And whenever we come together as a family, we feel at home. Thank you, Cuban families. XLIX World Communications Day, 2015 - Communicating the Family: A Privileged Place of Encounter with the Gift of Love. MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR THE 49th WORLD COMMUNICATIONS DAY Communicating the Family: A Privileged Place of Encounter with the Gift of Love The family is a subject of profound reflection by the Church and of a process involving two Synods: the recent extraordinary assembly and the ordinary assembly scheduled for next October.

XLIX World Communications Day, 2015 - Communicating the Family: A Privileged Place of Encounter with the Gift of Love

So I thought it appropriate that the theme for the next World Communications Day should have the family as its point of reference. After all, it is in the context of the family that we first learn how to communicate. Focusing on this context can help to make our communication more authentic and humane, while helping us to view the family in a new perspective. We can draw inspiration from the Gospel passage which relates the visit of Mary to Elizabeth (Lk 1:39-56).

This episode first shows us how communication is a dialogue intertwined with the language of the body. Families should be seen as a resource rather than as a problem for society. Elementary Particles. Generations of Matter: Fundamental Forces : Bosons (Force Carriers): Baryons and Mesons:

Elementary Particles

How big is a human cell in comparison to an atom? The Known (Apparently-) Elementary Particles. The Known (Apparently-) Elementary Particles. Elementary particles. One of the primary goals in modern physics is to answer the question "What is the Universe made of?

elementary particles

" Often that question reduces to "What is matter and what holds it together? " This continues the line of investigation started by Democritus, Dalton and Rutherford. Modern physics speaks of fundamental building blocks of Nature, where fundamental takes on a reductionist meaning of simple and structureless. Many of the particles we have discussed so far appear simple in their properties. All electrons have the exact same characteristics (mass, charge, etc.), so we call an electron fundamental because they are all non-unique. Elementary particle. In particle physics, an elementary particle or fundamental particle is a particle whose substructure is unknown, thus it is unknown whether it is composed of other particles.[1] Known elementary particles include the fundamental fermions (quarks, leptons, antiquarks, and antileptons), which generally are "matter particles" and "antimatter particles", as well as the fundamental bosons (gauge bosons and Higgs boson), which generally are "force particles" that mediate interactions among fermions.[1] A particle containing two or more elementary particles is a composite particle.

Elementary particle

Everyday matter is composed of atoms, once presumed to be matter's elementary particles—atom meaning "indivisible" in Greek—although the atom's existence remained controversial until about 1910, as some leading physicists regarded molecules as mathematical illusions, and matter as ultimately composed of energy.[1][2] Soon, subatomic constituents of the atom were identified.

Why miscarriage matters when you're pro-life

We were a fabulous group of gals. But, I'm not going to lie -- we were pretty nitpicky. And NOT the most popular in the office. In fact, we had not just one book, but multiple books by which we would mentally check each word, each phrase, each sentence. We had rules about whether a dash should be the size of a capital "N" or a capital "M" (and yes, we did measure). But we had one rule that trumped all rules: Consistency was king. You see, on most issues, you could get away with breaking a rule or two -- as long as you were consistent. And now, after both quitting my job and going through 3 first-trimester losses in a row (primarily surrounded by pro-lifers), I really wish I could say the same thing about life. I must make a disclaimer (to all my friends and family reading this) -- You did the best you could.

To be perfectly honest, before my losses, I didn't quite understand that the way we pro-lifers treat miscarriage is important. P.S. P.P.S.

The International Theological Commission has studied the question of the fate of un-baptised infants, bearing in mind the principle of the “hierarchy of truths” and the other theological principles of the universal salvific will of God, the unicity and insuperability of the mediation of Christ, the sacramentality of the Church in the order of salvation, and the reality of Original Sin.

Jean-Baptiste Lamarck. Lamarck fought in the Pomeranian War with Prussia, and was awarded a commission for bravery on the battlefield.[2] At his post in Monaco, Lamarck became interested in natural history and resolved to study medicine.[3] He retired from the army after being injured in 1766, and returned to his medical studies.[3] Lamarck developed a particular interest in botany, and later, after he published a three-volume work Flore française, he gained membership of the French Academy of Sciences in 1779.

Lamarck became involved in the Jardin des Plantes and was appointed to the Chair of Botany in 1788. When the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle was founded in 1793, Lamarck was appointed as a professor of zoology. The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 84, No. 2 (June 2009), pp. 131-176. Lamarckian Inheritance: Passing what you have learned to your children. If you have followed this blog for any length of time, you have probably figured out that I came to the science of aging through evolutionary biology, and that I believe evolutionary thinking is a key to understanding what aging is and how it can be addressed.

Lamarckian Inheritance: Passing what you have learned to your children

So without further ado, I introduce a column that is central to how evolution works, but peripheral to the science of aging. You know (or perhaps you take for granted or you’ve never thought much about it) that your body is really good at learning. Whatever it is that you persist in trying to do with your body, day after day over a period of time, your body gets better at it, stronger, more coordinated, more flexible, more skilled and versatile.

(And conversely those potential strengths which you do not exercise will atrophy, and you lose them.) You also know that you can’t pass these strengths and skills on to your children. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get past this limitation? Random variation is extremely inefficient. Ethnologue.
