Sandrine Ceurstemont, editor, New Scientist TV What's part of the universe? You may think of it as incorporating everything that exists - both on Earth and in space - but could it also include the unknown? In this One-Minute Physics episode, film-maker Henry Reich delves into the notion of the universe as described by physics, distinguishing between the whole universe and what's observable.

Ever been mesmerised by patterns of light at the bottom of a swimming pool? Time travel in the real world isn't yet possible.

grays provocation Watermark Tee by Sweet Verbana Hello U-Create readers! I am so excited to be guest posting here today. It just so happens to be my first guest post and I'm still a little shocked that it's here at Ucreate, one of my favorite blogs! A little bit about me.. I'm from a little town called Keller, Texas. I'm a junior at Texas A&M University (whoop!). I'm working on my education degree and expect to be an elementary school teacher in just two short years. When I'm not busy studying for classes, I love to sew. I just started blogging in May and have already met all kinds of wonderful women, I hope you'll stop by and say hi too!

Hide My Ass! Web Proxy La La Love You Is it weird that Valentines Day is one of my #1 favorite holidays? Especially considering the fact that I can't actually remember the last time I've had a boyfriend during this emo-as-hell day? Maybe it's just that I le love the idea of love (and that i want my life to be a magnetic fields song). But this also might stem from my preconceived ideas about living in New York. When I moved up here I had this really romantic idea that I'd find a super cute boyfriend who listened to good music, had a nice pup pup, and a sweet smile. Whenever we'd walk around, Jens Lekman and Todd Rundgren would be playing in the background and we'd drink bottles of wine all day in Central Park and laugh until our teeth fell out. But enough about me, let's talk about this super sweet and kindhearted breakfast-in-bed grilled cheese that won't stand you up on a Friday night I'm making for you and your lovie. And now here are the sweet ingredients: - 2 tbs of Nutella (ZOMG, right?) . Now some more berries! xoxo,

Even when you’re not paying attention, these relentless mental debates deeply influence our feelings and, ultimately, our behavior.

Now, tell me you don’t have this thought sometimes. But what’s so wrong about the Procrastinator’s Motto? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
