Yeshua - Wikipedia. Yeshua (ישוע, with vowel pointing יֵשׁוּעַ – yēšūă‘ in Hebrew) was a common alternative form of the name יְהוֹשֻׁעַ ("Yehoshua" – Joshua) in later books of the Hebrew Bible and among Jews of the Second Temple period.

Yeshua - Wikipedia

The name corresponds to the Greek spelling Iesous, from which, through the Latin Iesus, comes the English spelling Jesus.[1][2] In English, the name Yeshua is extensively used by followers of Messianic Judaism,[5] whereas East Syrian Christian denominations use the name Isho in order to preserve the Aramaic or Syriac name of Jesus.[6] Etymology[edit] Brain signatures detect racially biased and politically correct behaviors. Empathy for others is affected by race but this can be modulated by a secondary cognitive response, according to a study published online this July in Neuroscience.

Brain signatures detect racially biased and politically correct behaviors

The study points to the importance of education and social integration to overcome racism. Recent research has shown that the ability to share feelings with those of someone in pain is affected by the racial difference between people. History of medicine. Prehistoric medicine[edit] Although there is no record to establish when plants were first used for medicinal purposes (herbalism), the use of plants as healing agents, as well as clays and soils is ancient.

History of medicine

Over time through emulation of the behavior of fauna a medicinal knowledge base developed and passed between generations. As tribal culture specialized specific castes, shamans and apothecaries fulfilled the role of healer. [citation needed] The first known dentistry dates to about 7,000 B.C.E. in Baluchistan, where Neolithic dentists used flint-tipped drills and bowstrings.[1] The first known trepanning operation was carried out about 5,000 B.C.E. in Ensisheim, France.[2] Experiment confirms quantum theory weirdness. The bizarre nature of reality as laid out by quantum theory has survived another test, with scientists performing a famous experiment and proving that reality does not exist until it is measured.

Physicists at The Australian National University (ANU) have conducted John Wheeler's delayed-choice thought experiment, which involves a moving object that is given the choice to act like a particle or a wave. Guess what? More people are living in peace now. Just look at the numbers. Has the world seen moral progress?

Guess what? More people are living in peace now. Just look at the numbers

The answer should not depend on whether one has a sunny or a morose temperament. Everyone agrees that life is better than death, health better than sickness, prosperity better than privation, freedom better than tyranny, peace better than war. Josephus on Jesus.

Women in Philosophy. Jennifer Saul on the psychological biases adversely affecting philosophy – and what we can do about it.

Women in Philosophy

In the UK, women are 46% of undergraduate students in philosophy, but only 24% of permanent staff. Women are approximately 21% of professional philosophers in the US, but only 17% of those employed full-time. These figures are very unlike those for most fields of the humanities, in which women tend to be near or above parity with men. Indeed, they more closely resemble mathematics and physical sciences (biological sciences are much closer to parity). One recent study by Kieran Healy showed philosophy to be more male than mathematics, with only computer science, physics and engineering showing lower percentages of women. Constantine the Great. The age of Constantine marked a distinct epoch in the history of the Roman Empire.[5] He built a new imperial residence at Byzantium and named it New Rome.

Willie Soon. Soon is a critic of the scientific consensus on climate change, who gained prominence in the Soon and Baliunas controversy over the methodology of a paper he co-wrote.[6] He disputes the consensus view that human activity is a significant contributor to climate change, and has argued that most global warming is caused by solar variation.[7][8] Climate scientists have rebutted Soon's arguments, and the Smithsonian does not support his conclusions, but he is frequently cited by politicians opposed to climate-change legislation.[2][9] Soon's research has been largely funded by the fossil-fuel industry, which provided over $1.2 million in funding, including $409,000 from The Southern Company, $230,000 from Charles G.

Climate change denial

For the public debate over scientific conclusions, see global warming controversy. Climate change denial is a denial or dismissal of the scientific consensus on the extent of global warming, its significance, and its connection to human behavior, especially for commercial or ideological reasons.[1][2] Typically, these attempts take the rhetorical form of legitimate scientific debate, while not adhering to the actual principles of that debate.[3][4] Climate change denial has been associated with the fossil fuels lobby, the Koch brothers, industry advocates and free market think tanks, often in the United States.[5][6][7][8][9] Some commentators describe climate change denial as a particular form of denialism.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Meanings of the term History Public opinion Lobbying Private sector.

Ontario National Centre Strategy. SUPPORT THE PROJECT. When David Beats Goliath: The Advantage of Large Size in Interspecific Aggressive Contests Declines over Evolutionary Time. Body size has long been recognized to play a key role in shaping species interactions. For example, while small species thrive in a diversity of environments, they typically lose aggressive contests for resources with larger species. However, numerous examples exist of smaller species dominating larger species during aggressive interactions, suggesting that the evolution of traits can allow species to overcome the competitive disadvantage of small size.

Water-shedding surfaces can be made to last. Steam condensation is key to the worldwide production of electricity and clean water: It is part of the power cycle that drives 85 percent of all electricity-generating plants and about half of all desalination plants globally, according to the United Nations and International Energy Agency. So anything that improves the efficiency of this process could have enormous impact on global energy use. Now, a team of researchers at MIT says they have found a way to do just that.

Orangutans plan their future route and communicate it to others. Male orangutans plan their travel route up to one day in advance and communicate it to other members of their species. In order to attract females and repel male rivals, they call in the direction in which they are going to travel. Anthropologists at the University of Zurich have found that not only captive, but also wild-living orangutans make use of their planning ability. For a long time it was thought that only humans had the ability to anticipate future actions, whereas animals are caught in the here and now.

But in recent years, clever experiments with great apes in zoos have shown that they do remember past events and can plan for their future needs. How being called smart can actually make you stupid.
