OOH LA LA! photo: angela+ithyle/thebeautydepartment.com post designed by kristin ess Let’s start at the very beginning. I’ve heard it’s a very good place to start. This is just a hint of vintage, and not full on Rita Hayworth (although we will get there). Quantum physics enables perfectly secure cloud computing Researchers have succeeded in combining the power of quantum computing with the security of quantum cryptography and have shown that perfectly secure cloud computing can be achieved using the principles of quantum mechanics. They have performed an experimental demonstration of quantum computation in which the input, the data processing, and the output remain unknown to the quantum computer. The international team of scientists will publish the results of the experiment, carried out at the Vienna Center for Quantum Science and Technology (VCQ) at the University of Vienna and the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), in the forthcoming issue of Science. Quantum computers are expected to play an important role in future information processing since they can outperform classical computers at many tasks. The latest research, to appear in Science, reveals that quantum computers can provide an answer to that challenge. The process works in the following manner.
12 Steps to Break Your Addiction to a Person In his book, How to Break Your Addiction to a Person, Howard Halpern first explains what an addictive relationship is, then gives guidelines for recognizing if you’re involved in one. Then, he offers several techniques on how to end an unhealthy relationship (or an emotional affair). I’ve compiled and adapted all of his suggestions into the following dozen techniques, excerpting what I found to be the most important passages for each. 1. Keep a Relationship Log 12 signs of spiritual awakening NEW! Will you “Make it” through The Shift? September 9: I'm excited to announce my new program, which will help you answer this question – and more. Tutorial: Boho Updo It’s been warm here in San Francisco, so I figured it was a good excuse for a casual up do. This style is nice for when you are feeling particularly lazy, probably best for second day hair. If you are feeling fancy, you could curl your hair before hand, but I didn’t. Because (as I mentioned) I’m lazy. Step One: Start by taking the top section of your hair in a horse shoe shape around your crown and clip it up.
Building 'invisible' materials with light A new method of building materials using light, developed by researchers at the University of Cambridge, could one day enable technologies that are often considered the realm of science fiction, such as invisibility cloaks and cloaking devices. Although cloaked starships won't be a reality for quite some time, the technique which researchers have developed for constructing materials with building blocks a few billionths of a metre across can be used to control the way that light flies through them, and works on large chunks all at once. Details are published today (28 July) in the journal Nature Communications. The key to any sort of 'invisibility' effect lies in the way light interacts with a material.
The Art of Remembering and Interpreting Dreams By Judith Orloff, MD At different times in my life, I am a physician, a teacher, a friend and an author, but being a dreamer is what I value the most. Whatever I am doing, I always hear my dreams echoing in a distant underground chamber beneath my thoughts and feelings, attuned to the rhythms of my body and the very substance of the earth. What is dopamine? Love, lust, sex, addiction, gambling, motivation, reward Photo by Katie Nesling/Thinkstock In a brain that people love to describe as “awash with chemicals,” one chemical always seems to stand out. Dopamine: the molecule behind all our most sinful behaviors and secret cravings. Dopamine is love.
1940s Hair Tutorial Hello again, it’s Jessie from Sweet Thing! 40s hairstyles have been all over the fall runways and filling the pages of magazines, so I thought I would share an easy updated version of the 1940′s classic–the victory roll. I have bangs which makes this style a little tricky. I decided to do a side part and comb my bangs to one side, but this style can easily be done with a middle part if you prefer. Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings. Alex Huth explains the science of how the brain organizes visual categories. (Alex Huth video)
