Meditation Found To Increase Brain Size « Great Human Capital People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don’t. Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input. In one area of gray matter, the thickening turns out to be more pronounced in older than in younger people. Our data suggest that meditation practice can promote cortical plasticity in adults in areas important for cognitive and emotional processing and well-being,” says Sara Lazar, leader of the study and a psychologist at Harvard Medical School. The researchers compared brain scans of 20 experienced meditators with those of 15 nonmeditators. Meditators did Buddhist “insight meditation,” which focuses on whatever is there, like noise or body sensations. Controlling random thoughts Slowing aging?

UFO & Paranormal News Massive UFO event in Russia: Crashed flying saucer? Michael Cohen A UFO event of Roswell proportions has taken place in Russia and is being ignored by Western media. In Russia itself, the incident has been reported by Interfax, the official Russian government news outlet (see article here). On March 1 in the Irkutsk region of Siberia, a huge object, glowing pink and blue according to some accounts, was seen by thousands of locals as it hurtled towards Earth. An enormous explosion was then heard over a wide area. Curious and frightened residents inundated various police and rescue departments with phone calls. Meanwhile a sizable number of journalists arrived in the region and fanned out to the area's various settlements in search of witnesses: And they found them in the hundreds. Only hours prior to this event, air-traffic controllers in Yakutks, Siberia claim to have picked up a UFO on radar travelling at 6000 mph at a height of 65000.

:: JazzFusion.TV - official website :: Bootleg Audio This is the page that has the rare stuff. These vintage recordings feature live performances from some of the most influential artists of the day, whose work defined the Jazz Fusion genre in its formative stages. When launched in 2006, this page featured recordings that were captured mostly from FM radio broadcasts in Europe and Japan. I'd acquired copies of these and other shows on analog cassette tape in 1996-1997 when I was active in the tape trading world. Since then I've posted an additional 1700+ hours of audio, acquired from a number of trades, and from the Sugarmegs archive. The fidelity of the sound is generally imperfect, but the importance of this music can clearly be heard. Please note that these recordings have never been intended for commercial release. This collection is presented here in that same spirit of sharing, and may not be used for any commercial purpose. If you have some similar vintage Jazz Fusion audio that you'd like to share, please let me know .

Samsung Presents the HMX-H300, the Ultimate HD Family Camcorder « Digital Photography It is with great pleasure that I announce the joining of forces of MacCreate, one of the largest and most popular resources for Aperture users on the web, with ApertureExpert. The growth of ApertureExpert has been deliberately slow and steady, as I have always felt that the quality of training and support is of paramount priority. I’ve experimented along the way, one step at a time, allowing the growth the be organic and metered, and unbiased. For example, you’ll notice there’s no advertising on this site — all revenue is derived from sales of ebooks, video training, presets, AppleScripts and more — and all Aperture and photography related. However today we welcome the biggest single change we’ve ever faced. Meet David Schloss David Schloss, the founder of MacCreate, will continue to contribute to the Aperture community here on ApertureExpert. Meet Thomas Boyd Thomas Boyd is another familiar face to MacCreate readers. What’s Next So again, we welcome you to the site. Welcome our new friends
