Animal Totems and Animal Symbolism Animal totems play huge roles in our lives. They aid in self-discovery and capture our imagination, giving us incredible avenues of self-expression and awareness. Additionally, they assist in understanding our past, and if we are attentive, our animal totems can reveal glimpses of our future. Webster's Dictionary defines a totem as: "A natural object, usually an animal that serves as a distinctive, often venerated emblem or symbol. A means of personal or spiritual identity." Native American animal totems most commonly come to mind when discussing this topic. So, You Want A Searchable Database, Huh? - www.htmlgoodies.com Use these to jump around or read it all... [Search Someone Else's Database] [But I Want To Search MY Site!] [Goodies Search -- Java-Driven Search Engine] [Use AltaVista or HotBot] I am asked this question time and time again, "How do I set up a searchable database?" There are actually a few different ways -- some are harder than others. Here's a quick look at the three main ways.
Scientific Proof that Galactic Energies Have Triggered Worldwide Consciousness Expansion New energy from the galactic center is raising consciousness, which is triggering an upgrade to our DNA. On Coast to Coast AM, scientist David Sereda provided evidence that our Solar System entered a new field of cosmic energy that set off a chain of events including the vibration of the entire planet, the largest storm ever recorded on Saturn, and an early sunrise in Greenland (related to a wobble of the Earth and magnetic pole movement). The sequence of events began the day after the combined Winter Solstice and total lunar eclipse on December 21, 2010 – exactly two years to the day before the end of the Mayan calendar. On Dec 22, 2010, one day after the Winter Solstice/total lunar eclipse, earthquake sensors all over the planet all went off at the same time with full signal strength. According to Sereda, this was not an earthquake – the entire planet vibrated.
Mercedes Rolls Out Invisible Car When Mercedes wanted to promote its new fuel cell vehicle, instead of placing it squarely in front of everyone in the world, the company decided to make the car invisible. We have video. In this clever publicity stunt, Mercedes wanted to emphasize that its F-Cell vehicle has no exhaust emissions, making it virtually invisible to the environment. If you take a look at the gallery below, you'll see how these clever dudes did it: by placing a mat of LEDs across one side of the vehicle and mounting a video-shooting Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera on the other side. We saw a Halloween costume like this once.
how to erase memory (PhysOrg.com) -- Researchers working with mice have discovered that by removing a protein from the region of the brain responsible for recalling fear, they can permanently delete traumatic memories. Their report on a molecular means of erasing fear memories in rodents appears this week in Science Express. “When a traumatic event occurs, it creates a fearful memory that can last a lifetime and have a debilitating effect on a person’s life,” says Richard L. Huganir, Ph.D., professor and director of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator.
Giant Asteroid Eclipses Star Tonight in Rare Celestial Event: How to Watch Live An asteroid the size of Rhode Island will briefly blot out one of the brightest stars in the sky overnight tonight (March 19-20), and you can watch the rare celestial event live online, weather permitting. At around 2:05 a.m. EDT (0605 GMT) Thursday morning (March 20), a 45-mile-wide (72 kilometers) asteroid 163 Erigone will eclipse Regulus, as seen from a swath of North America, making the 22nd-brightest star in the sky disappear for a few seconds. This "occultation" will be visible from the ground only to people in a narrow corridor in northeastern North America. However, the online Slooh Space Camera will offer live views of the eclipse during a show that begins at 1:45 a.m.
Searching the invisible web (deep web, hidden web): WebLens sear Custom Search Locate deepweb resources by adding the word database to a regular search engine query. The terms invisible web, hidden web, and deep web all refer to the same thing: a massive storehouse of online data that regular search engines don't capture. That's because terabytes of information are buried in databases and other research resources.

Dreamy Lunar Eclipse + Play Audio | + Download Audio | + Join mailing list August 3, 2007: Close your eyes, breathe deeply, let your mind wander to a distant seashore: It's late in the day, and the western sun is sinking into the glittering waves. At your feet, damp sand reflects the twilight, while overhead, the deep blue sky fades into a cloudy mélange of sunset copper and gold, so vivid it almost takes your breath away. A breeze touches the back of your neck, and you turn to see a pale full Moon rising into the night. Hmmm.

Gateway to Ecstasy: How to Give a Tantric Lingam Massage In Tantra, the penis is called the Lingam, which in Sanskrit can be translated as "Wand of Light." A Lingam massage is a massage of the male genitals using a large variety of strokes and grips. The goals of the Lingam massage are to honor your man's Lingam and to help him to expand his ability to receive pleasure. The setting and your attitude are what make a Lingam massage a special experience for your man. Prepare a quiet, preferably dim, space with a bed, a futon mattress, or a blanket and pillows on the floor. The temperature in the room should be a little warmer than normal because you will both be nude.
Develop Perfect Memory With the Memory Palace Technique The Memory Palace is one of the most powerful memory techniques I know. It’s not only effective, but also fun to use — and not hard to learn at all. The Memory Palace has been used since ancient Rome, and is responsible for some quite incredible memory feats. Eight-time world memory champion Dominic O’Brien, for instance, was able to memorize 54 decks of cards in sequence (that’s 2808 cards), viewing each card only once. And there are countless other similar achievements attributed to people using the Memory Palace technique or variations of it.
