The importance of observing | Life and style Never was the phrase "a job well begun, is a job half done" truer than in the case of memory. All memories begin with what you perceive – with how you see, hear and feel the world. And for that simple reason, the first way to boost your memory is to make sure that you experience the world as vividly, clearly and meaningfully as possible. To understand how to do this, we need to appreciate that our senses are not designed to record the world, but instead to make sense of it. Where cameras take instantaneous, detailed snapshots of our surroundings, human perception takes time and is full of creativity and imagination. To experience the world in memorable ways, we need to treat perception as an active process of recognising, probing, questioning, comparing, opining and feeling.

'We've all been taught that this doesn't happen' | Michigan Today

'We've all been taught that this doesn't happen' | Michigan Today A dramatic and surprising magnetic effect of light discovered by University of Michigan researchers could lead to solar power without traditional semiconductor-based solar cells. William Fisher, a doctoral student in applied physics, performing research on laser-induced magnetism. The researchers found a way to make an "optical battery," said Stephen Rand, a professor in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Physics and Applied Physics.
“Music helps me concentrate,” Mike said to me glancing briefly over his shoulder. Mike was in his room writing a paper for his U.S. History class. On his desk next to his computer sat crunched Red Bulls, empty Gatorade bottles, some extra pocket change and scattered pieces of paper. 8 Things Everybody Ought to Know About Concentrating

Quantum Pixel

Q : Hé moi aussi je veux un beau site comme ça, vous me le faites ? WordPress est un logiciel participatif, normalement chacun peut reprendre un habillage et l’adapter, rien n’est “déposé”.Cela dit nous avons décidé de ne pas le mettre non plus en open-source. On s’est donné du mal pour faire un truc joli et on ne veut pas que ce soit repris n’importe comment par n’importe qui. Nous avons donc préféré nous dire que nous filerions l’accès à ce format d’habillage à des dessinateurs dont nous connaissons/apprécions le travail ! Quantum Pixel

Personal and Historical Perspectives of Hans Bethe

Three Lectures by Hans Bethe IN 1999, legendary theoretical physicist Hans Bethe delivered three lectures on quantum theory to his neighbors at the Kendal of Ithaca retirement community (near Cornell University). Given by Professor Bethe at age 93, the lectures are presented here as streaming videos synchronized with slides of his talking points and archival material. Intended for an audience of Professor Bethe's neighbors at Kendal, the lectures hold appeal for experts and non-experts alike. The presentation makes use of limited mathematics while focusing on the personal and historical perspectives of one of the principal architects of quantum theory whose career in physics spans 75 years. A video introduction and appreciation are provided by Professor Silvan S. Personal and Historical Perspectives of Hans Bethe

Today - Hawking on the future of mankind To mark his 70th birthday, physicist Professor Stephen Hawking answered a selection of questions from listeners to Radio 4's Today Programme. Topics ranged from the origins of the universe to the prospects for extra terrestrial life and the impact on Einstein's theory of relativity should neutrinos be confirmed to travel faster than light. It seems clear that Professor Hawking believes we we will have to colonise space if we are to avoid catastrophe, but he is upbeat about the prospects for self-sustaining colonies on Mars and believes the human race will eventually spread out across the far reaches of the universe. Finding intelligent life elsewhere in the universe, he says, would be the greatest scientific discovery ever, but he is not optimistic about the likely outcome. 1.
