Ghostery 50 Fascinating Things I've Read Lately Pretty simple. When I read something I like, I try to write it down. In no particular order, here are 50 things I've read lately that, for one reason or another, caught my attention. "Today, of Americans officially designated as 'poor,' 99 percent have electricity, running water, flush toilets, and a refrigerator; 95 percent have a television, 88 percent a telephone, 71 percent a car and 70 percent air conditioning. "As late as the 1950s, New York's garment industry was the nation's largest manufacturing cluster. "If everyone worldwide had the same chance of becoming a billionaire, you'd expect the chance of a billionaire child having a billionaire parent to be one out of 9.3 million. "Two married 66-year-olds with roughly average earnings over their lives will end up paying about $110,000 in dedicated Medicare taxes through the payroll tax, including the portion their employers pay.

10 Ways Our Minds Warp Time How time perception is warped by life-threatening situations, eye movements, tiredness, hypnosis, age, the emotions and more… The mind does funny things to our experience of time. Just ask French cave expert Michel Siffre. In 1962 Siffre went to live in a cave that was completely isolated from mechanical clocks and natural light. When he tried to measure out two minutes by counting up to 120 at one-second intervals, it took him 5 minutes. But you don’t have to hide out in a cave for a couple of months to warp time, it happens to us all the time. 1. People often report that time seems to slow down in life-threatening situations, like skydiving. But are we really processing more information in these seconds when time seems to stretch? To test this, Stetson et al. (2007) had people staring at a special chronometer while free-falling 50 metres into a net. 2. We’ve all experienced the fact that time seems to fly when we’re having fun. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Time is relative
Home Loan Comparison | Home Loans Calculator for Refinancing « Tomorrow Finance Online Speed Reading tools and software - StumbleUpon Simply start by clicking on the Play button on the left. Reading is that one activity that we do every day but we don't really practice. Most people learn the basics of reading in kindergarten and never graduate to the next levels. You are probably using the same basic rudimental tools and techniques that you learned when you were 6. The average American person reads at an average speed of 180 to 240 words per minute and has done so since he was 16 years old. Does it make sense that we hit our best performance at age 16 and that we don't improve much after that? Keep in mind less than 10% read at 400 words per minute and less than 1% faster than 600. Have you ever wished you could take one of those costly speed reading courses? The problem with those courses is that you have to keep practicing those techniques until they become second nature. That's the goal of this site. We are here to keep you focused and to help you improve your speed reading everyday. What is sub-vocalization?
10 Apps That Show Off the iPhone 4S's New Features - Videolicious A new iPhone gets you a faster processor, a better camera for stills and video, enhanced GPS, and Siri, the voice-enabled personal assistant. These apps take advantage of them. A new iPhone means new hardware, and with the 4S, the most notable upgrades are to the processor and the camera.

The iPhone 4S has only been available for a little more than a week, but you can already find some apps that have been designed specifically to take advantage of the phone's new dual-core A5 processor. Perhaps even more notable are the upgrades to the iPhone's camera.

E SE IL TEMPO NON ESISTESSE AFFATTO? Traduco e sintetizzo nel seguito un lungo articolo apparso di recente su Wakingtimes.com, ad opera di Brandon West, creatore di Project Global Awakening: “un sito dedicato alla ricerca di varie discipline spirituali e scientifiche e alla loro applicazione per la tua conoscenza e per aiutarti a vivere una vita ispirata e cambiare il mondo” (c.b.) E se tutto accadesse simultaneamente? E se il tempo non esistesse affatto? Ho visto di recente una descrizione dell’universo, come percepito in fisica. Per citare William Brown (da non confondersi con il William Brown che lavora per il Resonance Project): “Ciò che la scienza ha scoperto esplorando i livelli profondi della realtà, è che il nostro universo è strutturato in strati di creazione. Cosa è il Tempo? Questa è proprio la questione che andiamo qui ad analizzare in questo articolo, dandole forse una risposta. Ma le cose si muovono veramente? Un universo statico“Il Tao non agisce tuittavia è la radice di tutta l’azione. Lao Tzu

Why Time Slows Down When We’re Afraid, Speeds Up as We Age, and Gets Warped on Vacation by Maria Popova “Time perception matters because it is the experience of time that roots us in our mental reality.” Given my soft spot for famous diaries, it should come as no surprise that I keep one myself. That’s precisely what acclaimed BBC broadcaster and psychology writer Claudia Hammond explores in Time Warped: Unlocking the Mysteries of Time Perception (public library) — a fascinating foray into the idea that our experience of time is actively created by our own minds and how these sensations of what neuroscientists and psychologists call “mind time” are created. We construct the experience of time in our minds, so it follows that we are able to change the elements we find troubling — whether it’s trying to stop the years racing past, or speeding up time when we’re stuck in a queue, trying to live more in the present, or working out how long ago we last saw our old friends. And yet the brain does keep track of time, even if inaccurately. Donating = Loving Share on Tumblr
