Interesting things, humor, facts, videos, wallpapers, plus funny and cool t shirts | I Like To Waste My Time How Do You Catch Someone Who Is Stealing Stuff from Your Office?! « Fresh 102.7 Do you have this problem? You probably have a cubicle, right? One morning, you come in and things are missing! This happens to us every single day… people walk into our office (which is a small space the three of us share and doesn’t have a lock) when we aren’t here and start snacking on our food! Suddenly, you go to open the Thin Mints and there is one cookie left in the sleeve. So we decided to call our favorite private eye and find out what kind of trap we could set for them. Judd Bank from CPI Investigations has helped us in the past with our private investigation needs, so we called him up to find out how to find the food offender. Have you ever had personal items go missing in your office? –Kim Berk, Fresh 102.7 Contact the Jim & Kim Show:

Revolution 1848 - Tafelbild Das Tafelbild behandelt die sozialen und politischen Bedingungen der Revolution und die Entwicklungen, die zur Revolution 1848 führten; außerdem die Spaltung des Vorparlaments. Auf dem Tafelbild sind vier relevante Phasen der beginnenden Märzrevolution 1848 aufgezeigt: In der Gesellschaft des Vormärz existieren Spannungen politischer und sozialer Natur, die durch ökonomische Krisen verstärkt werden. Unter dem Eindruck der Februarrevolution in Frankreich kommt es zur Formulierung von Märzforderungen und zur Bildung der Märzministerien. Revolutionäre Aktionen in Wien und Berlin führen zur Bildung des Vorparlaments, in dem Radikale und Gemäßigte keinen Konsens finden. Laden Sie das Tafelbild hier als Bilddatei (png) oder als PDF-Dokument (bessere Auflösung) herunter. Das Tafelbild “Märzrevolution 1848” ist fast etwas zu umfangreich, um es in einer Unterrichtsphase im Unterrichtsgespräch zu entwickeln.

Beauty Secrets from Around the World When it comes to beauty routines, the grass is always greener. Japanese women have it made with their long, glossy hair and Greek women’s olive-toned complexions are always luminous. But how do they do it? Put down your passport—you won’t need to go anywhere to find out. Australia Australian makeup artist Napoleon Perdis says yarrow extract is used by Australian Aboriginal women to prevent stretch marks, thanks to its moisturizing and hydrating properties. Chile Chilean women credit the antioxidant powers of red grapes for their luminous skin. Dominican Republic “If you ever meet a Dominican woman, look at her nails––chances are they’re super-strong,” says Vadhera. Egypt According to Vadhera, Cleopatra’s beauty secret was taking milk baths to soften her skin and remove dead cells. France “The French woman sticks to a scrupulous and preventive skin and body care routine,” says Shannon Gallogly, lead aesthetician for French beauty brands Decleor and Carita.

Symphony of Science Future of Space Exploration: Armies of Info-Gathering Bots The way we explore space is set to change drastically in the near future, according to Wolfgang Fink, associate in physics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. While we currently rely on single single-spacecraft missions that are commanded from Earth, we will soon see virtual armies of cheap, expendable space robots deployed to other heavenly bodies. They’ll be able to command themselves and other robots, making them a cohesive yet independent unit of exploration. Fink’s vision centers on an exploratory trip to Titan, Saturn’s largest moon. He sees sending a group of rovers, lake landers and an airship that will float above the moon. Today, space missions rely on Earth-based orders. (98) Wall Photos

The Lion King (1994) - Memorable quotes Can hot water freeze faster than cold water? [Physics FAQ] - [Copyright] Written Nov, 1998 by Monwhea Jeng (Momo), Department of Physics, University of California Yes — a general explanation History of the Mpemba Effect More-detailed explanations References Yes — a general explanation Hot water can in fact freeze faster than cold water for a wide range of experimental conditions. The phenomenon that hot water may freeze faster than cold is often called the Mpemba effect. This seems impossible, right? What's wrong with this proof is that it implicitly assumes that the water is characterized solely by a single number — its average temperature. It is still not known exactly why this happens. Why hasn't modern science answered this seemingly simple question about cooling water? So with the limited number of experiments done, often under very different conditions, none of the proposed mechanisms can be confidently proclaimed as "the" mechanism. Finally, supercooling may be important to the effect. History of the Mpemba Effect Evaporation
