Philosophical Foundations of Physics by Rudolf Carnap Rudolph Carnap (1966) Philosophical Foundations of Physics Source: Philosophical Foundations of Physics (1966) publ. Basic Books Inc. ONE OF THE most important distinctions between two types of laws in science is the distinction between what may be called (there is no generally accepted terminology for them) empirical laws and theoretical laws. Here, a warning must be issued. A philosopher might object that the intensity of an electric current is not really observed. The physicist would reply that this was true enough, but the inference was not very complicated. There is no question here of who is using the term “observable” in a right or proper way. Empirical laws, in my terminology, are laws containing terms either directly observable by the senses or measurable by relatively simple techniques. There is no commonly accepted term for the second kind of laws, which I call theoretical laws. Theoretical laws are, of course, more general than empirical laws. Chapter 24Correspondence Rules

10 Best Plants to Grow Indoors for Air Purification Most are naturally drawn to the outdoors for a period of quiet contemplation and/or a restful area to relax in. But often snowy weather, lack of time, or location can inhibit one’s time in the wilderness. Thankfully, it is easier than ever to introduce flora into one’s home.

Cordyceps and endurance. Lol at what Ocean Size posted. Seems gross. As far as I know, there are no studies on it. I can tell you with absolute certainty, however, that there are very few things that you can take to improve your cardiac performance, and one is blood doping. Oxygen (O) and water Oxygen is the most abundant element on earth. Oxygen exists as O2 and O3 (ozone), and is present in a number of compounds including water molecules. It can be found dissolved in water as O2 molecules. Consequently, the oxygen content of seawater is 85.7%. In what way and in what form does oxygen react with water? Gaseous oxygen does not react with water. O2 + 2 H2O + 4 e- -> 4 OH- Oxygen may oxidize organic matter. Fe2+ + 0,25 O2 -> Fe(OH)3 + 2,5 H+ Mn2+ + O2 -> MnO2 + 2 H+ NH4+ + 2 O2 -> NO3- + 6 H+ CH4 + 2 O2 -> CO2 + 4 H+ These mechanisms show that ammonium and methane apply large amounts of oxygen, and the resulting oxidation reactions form higher or lower amounts of acid. Solubility of oxygen and oxygen compounds Water solubility of oxygen at 25oC and pressure = 1 bar is at 40 mg/L water. Why is oxygen present in water? As was described earlier, oxygen dissolves naturally when water comes in contact with air. What are the environmental effects of oxygen in water?

Shitake mushrooms help boost immunity and prevent cancer Sat. Jan. 4, 2014 by Michelle Marks, staff writer (NaturalHealth365) Shitake mushrooms are among the most researched mushroom type due to its remarkable ability to boost immunity and prevent cancer. These mushrooms are particularly known for their ability to increase the activity of natural killer (NK) cells. Recently, researchers identified a phytonutrient compound called lentinan in shitake mushrooms. An animal study demonstrated how consuming shitake mushrooms can inhibit tumor cell growth. Many studies have documented the potential of shitake mushroom to upregulate and downregulate the immune system. In the process of downplaying an overactive immune system – shitake mushrooms can help to decrease inflammation, and allergies; while its capability to boost immune activity will help to fight off viral infections – including tumor-related growths. Shitake mushroom is nature’s wonder food because very few foods are identified to play this dual regulatory role. References:1.

Sagittarius’ location is easy to find because the constellation lies on the Milky Way. Its symbol is ♐. Like other zodiac constellations, Sagittarius was originally catalogued by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century. The constellation contains the luminous Pistol Star, the galactic centre, the radio source Sagittarius A, and a number of very famous deep sky objects, including the Sagittarius Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy, the Sagittarius Dwarf Irregular Galaxy, Barnard’s Galaxy, the Bubble Nebula, and as many as 15 Messier objects, among them the Omega Nebula, the Lagoon Nebula, and the Trifid Nebula. Sagittarius Constellation Map, by IAU and Sky&Telescope magazine Sagittarius is the 15th largest constellation in the sky. Nunki – σ Sagittarii (Sigma Sagittarii)
