Before Present ( BP ) years is a time scale used in archaeology , geology , and other scientific disciplines to specify when events in the past occurred. Because the "present" time changes, standard practice is to use 1 January 1950 as the origin of the age scale, reflecting the fact that radiocarbon dating became practicable in the 1950s. The abbreviation "BP", with the same meaning, has also been interpreted as "Before Physics"; that is, before nuclear weapons testing artificially altered the proportion of the carbon isotopes in the atmosphere. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ edit ] Usage of "BP" The BP scale is sometimes used for dates established by means other than radiocarbon dating, such as stratigraphy . [ 3 ] [ 4 ]

Infrasound arrays at infrasound monitoring station in Qaanaaq , Greenland. Infrasound, sometimes referred to as low-frequency sound, is sound that is lower in frequency than 20 Hz ( Hertz ) or cycles per second, the "normal" limit of human hearing. Hearing becomes gradually less sensitive as frequency decreases, so for humans to perceive infrasound, the sound pressure must be sufficiently high.
This “lighting up” of the mind lasts longer than the initial electrical spark, shifting the brain to a higher gear, encouraging further reading. The research also found that reading poetry, in particular, increases activity in the right hemisphere of the brain, an area concerned with “autobiographical memory”, helping the reader to reflect on and reappraise their own experiences in light of what they have read. The academics said this meant the classics were more useful than self-help books.
I’ve been in full on manic-hermit-mode the past two days and have been cooking up a storm. I’ve also been incredibly productive in the rest of my house. It’s taking time for me to make a dent, and I’m currently in the “chaos before the calm” stage, but I’m hoping it will be settled by the time I go back to work on Monday. I’m desperately trying to decrease the clutter in my home, (and life?) by cleaning out.
Wishing every one a happy, healthy, joyous holiday season (regardless of one’s religion or non-religious choices). This Thursday 13 I thought it would interesting to explore the origins of the holiday. Here is a list of some of the of Pagan gods that had “birthdays” or are associated with December 25th: Apollo Attis Bacchus Dionysus the son of Zeus Helios Hercules Horus Jupiter Mithras Nimrod (who eventually came to be worshipped as Baal) – According to ancient Babylonian tradition, Semiramis (later known as the goddess Astarte/Asherah/Ashtoreth/Isis/Ishtar/Easter in other pagan religions) claimed that after the untimely death of her son/husband Nimrod, a full grown evergreen tree sprang up overnight from a dead tree stump. Semiramis claimed that Nimrod would visit that evergreen tree and leave gifts each year on the anniversary of his birth, which just happened to be on December 25th.
