Kim Peek Laurence Kim Peek (November 11, 1951 – December 19, 2009) was an American savant. Known as a "megasavant",[1][2][3] he had an exceptional memory, but he also experienced social difficulties, possibly resulting from a developmental disability related to congenital brain abnormalities. He was the inspiration for the character of Raymond Babbitt, played by Dustin Hoffman in the movie Rain Man. Unlike Babbitt, who had autism, Peek probably also had FG syndrome.[4][5] Early life[edit] Peek did not walk until the age of four and then in a sidelong manner.[8] He could not button up his shirt and had difficulty with other ordinary motor skills, presumably due to his damaged cerebellum, which normally coordinates motor activities. Rain Man[edit] In 1984, screenwriter Barry Morrow met Peek in Arlington, Texas; the result of the meeting was the 1988 movie Rain Man. Scientific investigation[edit] Death[edit] Peek, 58, died of a heart attack at his home on December 19, 2009.[10][12] Appearances[edit]

Thought for the Day -- Hazelden In the face of an obstacle, which is impossible to overcome, stubbornness is stupid. —Simone de Beauvoir Sudden obstacles, barriers in the way of our progress, doors that unexpectedly close, may confuse, frustrate, and even depress us. The knowledge that we seldom understand just what is best for us comes slowly. And we generally fight it, even after we've begun to understand. We may wonder why a door seems to have closed. The program can help us understand the unexpected. The obstacles confronting me invite me to grow, to move beyond my present self.

True Secret to Success: Gratitude I'm utterly convinced that the key to lifelong success is the regular exercise of a single emotional muscle: gratitude. People who approach life with a sense of gratitude are constantly aware of what's wonderful in their life. Because they enjoy the fruits of their successes, they seek out more success. And when things don't go as planned, people who are grateful can put failure into perspective. By contrast, people who lack gratitude are never truly happy. Therefore, if you want to be successful, you need to feel more gratitude. Practice Nightly The best time to exercise gratitude is just before bed. Did you help somebody solve a problem? What you're doing is "programming your brain" to view your day more positively. Reprogramming Your Brain More important, you're also programming your brain to notice even more reasons to feel gratitude. The more regularly you practice this exercise, the stronger its effects. This method works.

Science informs us that this is mere fiction and that man is a few million years old, and that civilization just tens of thousands of years old. Could it be, however, that conventional science is just as mistaken as the Bible stories? There is a great deal of archeological evidence that the history of life on earth might be far different than what current geological and anthropological texts tell us. Consider these astonishing finds: The Grooved Spheres Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres.

Virus removal tools: FixMeStick USB key plugs into your computer and deletes malware By Eddie Wrenn Published: 13:02 GMT, 18 June 2012 | Updated: 17:11 GMT, 18 June 2012 Getting a virus cleaned off your computer can be a burden at the best of times. But now a new USB stick aims to make it far easier by giving you the same tools as the professionals - and all you have to do is plug it in. The FixMeStick supposedly finds the files which other anti-virus programmes miss by using powerful anti-virus software normally used by computer technicians. All users have to do is put it into a USB slot on their PC and it will do the rest. Fix Me: Stick the USB key into your PC and it will stop Windows from loading - and scan your computer for errors The FixMeStick’s advantages are that it works as an automatic safe disk that means you can boot your computer from the drive, and it cleans up the damage. Rather than scanning it starts your machine again then interrupts Windows so that it can carry out a full check before it loads. ‘All it can do is toss that file into quarantine.
