1000 Awesome Things - Flock Exploring Realm Dynamics An ancient hermetic axiom states that everything is mind, everything vibrates. Since each living thing is uniquely conscious, each living thing carries a unique vibratory signature. The soul broadcasts a rich spectrum of vibrations, which through the principle of resonance attracts a corresponding spectrum of experiences. Souls of a common frequency share common realms of experience and tend to cross paths in life. This is the study of realm dynamics, how vibrations influence experience, and how experience influences vibration. For instance, realm dynamics explains: Vibration When we speak of vibration, we are really talking about waves with amplitude, frequency, and phase. Soul vibrations are no less tangible than sound waves, though their nature and medium of propagation are more exotic. Nevertheless this field is rife with patterned energy and information—the very stuff of thought and emotion. But how exactly does consciousness manifest experience? The Fractal Hologram Realms - Home Page Retro delight: Gallery of early computers (1940s – 1960s) | Roya We often think of computers as a very modern phenomenon, but there were actually plenty of computers around 50 years ago. They just weren’t an everyman commodity, instead limited to goverment and corporate use. And they certainly weren’t small. Below we have listed as many as 19 examples of computers from the early days, pioneering efforts that although cutting edge in their day now look lovingly retro. These computers didn’t use the same kind of components as we do today. We have listed the completion year for each computer, although often work on them had begun several years earlier (they were huge projects). Year: 1944 Designed by the legendary German engineer Konrad Zuse, the Z4 was a follow-up to its pioneering predecessor, the Z3 computer he built in 1941 (the world’s first programmable, automatic computing machine). Above: The Z4 computer, as seen in a German museum (in Munich). Colossus Above, top: The Colossus in its heyday. Year: 1946 Above, top: The ENIAC in all its glory.

The Nanotechnology of Sundew and English Ivy | Behind the Scenes | LiveScie... - StumbleUpon This Behind the Scenes article was provided to LiveScience in partnership with the National Science Foundation. Fifteen small sundew plants perch on a windowsill collecting sunlight and eating meat in the lab of Mingjun Zhang on the University of Tennessee's Knoxville campus. Sundew plants are carnivores, consuming insects by capturing them with small adhesive balls on the ends of their tentacles. The tentacles and their adhesive properties may be nature's design for catching insects, but Zhang's research team hopes that one day this same adhesive can help attach your grandmother's replacement hip or your artificial knee without fear that your bodies will reject it. Post-doctoral researcher Scott Lenaghan explained that the idea behind this research at the Nano Bio-systems and Bio-mimetics Lab is to learn from biological principles and apply engineering along the way to develop an end product that uses these compounds and principles to advance technology.

Bisexualism: Why don't we take it seriously? The acronym "LGBT" can be very misleading for many reasons but none more than the fact it implies that we are all united. Being the "B" in that acronym can be devastatingly isolating. Not only do bisexuals have to deal with homophobia from ignorant hetrosexuals they must also deal with the biphobia that is prevalent in the LGBT community. Talk to anybody about bisexuality and you'll hear a repetitive stream of thinly veiled insults. What is bisexualism? There are said to be 3 categories under the bisexual umbrella; Bi feelings, bi behaviour and bi identity. Then there's "bisexual behaviours" an experimental phase. A lover of souls? Lastly there are those with a bisexual identity. Some are simply not attracted to bisexuals. Sirena Reynolds, Editor

CompTIA The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), a non-profit trade association, was created in 1982 as the Association of Better Computer Dealers, Inc. (ABCD) by representatives of five microcomputer dealerships. Over the course of a decade, ABCD laid the groundwork for many of CompTIA’s initiatives and member benefits. ABCD later changed its name to the Computing Technology Industry Association to reflect the association's evolving role in the computer industry and in the U.S. business landscape at large. CompTIA is a provider of professional certifications for the information technology (IT) industry. Current certifications[edit] In April 2007, CompTIA's "A+", "Network+", and "Security+" certifications became accredited by the American National Standards Institute. In January 2010 these ANSI/ISO approved certifications fundamentally had their conditions changed from lifetime certifications to certifications that will expire every three years.
