Carl Sagan Carl Edward Sagan (/ˈseɪɡən/; November 9, 1934 – December 20, 1996) was an American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences. His contributions were central to the discovery of the high surface temperatures of Venus. However, he is best known for his contributions to the scientific research of extraterrestrial life, including experimental demonstration of the production of amino acids from basic chemicals by radiation. Sagan assembled the first physical messages that were sent into space: the Pioneer plaque and the Voyager Golden Record, universal messages that could potentially be understood by any extraterrestrial intelligence that might find them. Sagan always advocated scientific skeptical inquiry and the scientific method, pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). §Early life My parents were not scientists.
Tommy Chong Reveals Prostate Cancer Diagnosis, Treating with Hemp Oil by Mike Barrett One-half of the German award-winning comedy duo Cheech & Chong, Tommy Chong has recently announced his battle against prostate cancer. While Chong was diagnosed about a month ago with prostate cancer, he was told by his doctor that a ‘slow stage 1′ cancer has been active for a ‘long time’. Chong, known for appearing in a number of films based on hippies and drug culture movements, and his role in ‘That 70′s Show’, revealed his diagnosis to support the decriminalization of marijuana use – as expected, Chong has been treating his cancer with the use of hemp oil. “I’ve got prostate cancer, and I’m treating it with hemp oil, with cannabis,” Chong said. “So [legalizing marijuana] means a lot more to me than just being able to smoke a joint without being arrested.” Interestingly, Chong says that he started having prostate-related problem only once he was drug-free for three years. ”So I know it had nothing to do with cannabis…Cannabis is a cure,” Chong said.

How To Whiten Teeth With Orange Peels Home whitening products and dentist-office treatments are possibilities for whitening, but both are perceived as harsh and expensive. Home remedies for teeth whitening aren't usually based in much scientific research, but anecdotal evidence suggests they may work. Orange peels contain a natural solvent that may help reduce some stains on your teeth. If the orange peel treatment does work for you, it will take a much longer time to see results and is unlikely to remove all stains. Citrus rinds, including oranges, contain d-limonene, a natural scent and solvent. Cosmetic manufacturers include d-limonene in a number of products, including toothpastes and tooth whiteners. The 2010 study did find that the orange peel compound, d-limonene, was not effective in reducing stains on teeth due to tea drinking. Dr. An orange peel treatment could be an affordable way to try whitening your teeth, says registered dental hygienist Sandy Johnson of Castle Dental.
Blog Archive » Mr. X by Carl Sagan This account was written in 1969 for publication in Marihuana Reconsidered (1971). Sagan was in his mid-thirties at that time. He continued to use cannabis for the rest of his life. It all began about ten years ago. I can remember another early visual experience with cannabis, in which I viewed a candle flame and discovered in the heart of the flame, standing with magnificent indifference, the black-hatted and -cloaked Spanish gentleman who appears on the label of the Sandeman sherry bottle. I want to explain that at no time did I think these things ‘really’ were out there. While my early perceptions were all visual, and curiously lacking in images of human beings, both of these items have changed over the intervening years. The cannabis experience has greatly improved my appreciation for art, a subject which I had never much appreciated before. A very similar improvement in my appreciation of music has occurred with cannabis. There is a very nice self-titering aspect to cannabis.

Marijuana And Cancer: Scientists Find Cannabis Compound Stops Metastasis In Aggressive Cancers A pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco has found that a compound derived from marijuana could stop metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer, potentially altering the fatality of the disease forever. "It took us about 20 years of research to figure this out, but we are very excited," said Pierre Desprez, one of the scientists behind the discovery, to The Huffington Post. "We want to get started with trials as soon as possible." The Daily Beast first reported on the finding, which has already undergone both laboratory and animal testing, and is awaiting permission for clinical trials in humans. Desprez, a molecular biologist, spent decades studying ID-1, the gene that causes cancer to spread. "What we found was that his Cannabidiol could essentially 'turn off' the ID-1," Desprez told HuffPost. "We likely would not have found this on our own," he added. Desprez and McAllister first published a paper about the finding in 2007. Loading Slideshow
» How to Get Bruce Lee Like Strength Without Ever Going to a Gym Article by Zen Habits contributor Jonathan Mead; follow him on twitter. “Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Bruce Lee was a paragon of cool and an icon of the ultimate bad-ass. What’s more impressive is that Bruce trained his body without ever stepping into a gym and with very little use of weights or machines. Here are just a few of Lee’s physical feats: Performed one-hand push-ups using only the thumb and index finger.Could hold an elevated v-sit position for 30 minutes or longer.Could throw grains of rice up into the air and then catch them in mid-flight using chopsticks.Could break wooden boards 6 inches (15 cm) thick.Performed 50 reps of one-arm chin-ups. While you may not get to Bruce Lee’s level overnight, you can start getting in shape without the use of a lot of fancy (and expensive) equipment. Calisthenics.
Science Says: Lungs Love Weed Breathe easy, tokers. Smoking marijuana in moderate amounts may not be so bad for your lungs, after all. A new study, published in this month's Journal of the American Medical Association, tested the lung function of over 5,000 young adults between 18 and 30 to determine marijuana's effect on lungs. After 20 years of testing, researchers found some buzzworthy results: regular marijuana smokers (defined by up to a joint a day for seven years) had no discernable impairment in lung activity from non-smokers. In fact, researchers were surprised to find marijuana smokers performed slightly better than both smokers and non-smokers on the lung performance test. MORE: 5 Reasons Not to Smoke Synthetic Weed For most of human existence, cannabis has been considered a medicine. Attitudes are changing, however. As marijuana enters the mainstream, studies like the one published in JAMA might dispel false assertions about the plant's deleterious health hazards and promote its medicinal benefits.

What are the real risks of taking cannabis? By Richard Shrubb The right wing press would have you believe that cannabis makes you a psychotic knife wielding monster, about to progress through the gateway to a lonely death from an OD on heroin and crack cocaine speedballs. Never believe everything you read in the papers … Many years ago I was surprised to be told by a professor of psychiatry while researching an article, that smoking pot didn’t actually cause my schizophrenia – I was going to get the illness whether I liked it or not. In 1998 a seminar paper was published in The Lancet. With science one really should look for the latest findings – 14 years is a bloody long time in medical research. It hedges its bets where knowledge is patchy but broadly sums up what is still generally understood to this day. Cannabis joint. So, what are the real risks? The Lancet suggested that cannabis use has high risks of bronchitis, which can lead to other illnesses. Again, beware of old science! Even this figure can’t be exact.
Is Google God? By Matt MacPherson Google is the closest thing to an Omniscient (all-knowing) entity in existence, which can be scientifically verified. She indexes over 9.5 billion WebPages, which is more than any other search engine on the web today. Not only is Google the closest known entity to being Omniscient, but She also sorts through this vast amount of knowledge using Her patented PageRank technology, organizing said data and making it easily accessible to us mere mortals. Google is everywhere at once (Omnipresent). Google answers prayers. Google is potentially immortal. Google is infinite. Google remembers all. Google can "do no evil" (Omnibenevolent). According to Google trends, the term "Google" is searched for more than the terms "God", "Jesus", "Allah", "Buddha", "Christianity", "Islam", "Buddhism" and "Judaism" combined. God is thought to be an entity in which we mortals can turn to when in a time of need. Evidence of Google's existence is abundant. Join the debate below:
