Criteria Criteria for Selection into the Schwab Foundation Network 1. Transformative Social Change The social enterprise achieves transformative social and/or environmental change through the application of innovative and practical approaches to benefit society in general, with an emphasis on underserved populations. 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.
When You Have the Right Vibe, It's Not a Coincidence: Synchronicities, Energy Healing, and Other Strangeness in the Field The following is excerpted from Active Consciousness: Awakening the Power Within , recently released from R.L.Ranch Press. One piece of evidence for the holographic nature of nonstandard fields that have been proposed in recent years -- the zero-point field (a candidate for the unified field ), the psi field of psychic phenomena, Ervin Laszlo's Akashic field , and the morphic field proposed by Rupert Sheldrake  -- is that they all share a common feature: sensitivity to similarity in vibration. If a holographic image has many different holograms embedded within it, shining a laser of a specific frequency upon it will cause only those holograms made with lasers of the same frequency to stand out.
Hard problem of consciousness The existence of a "hard problem" is controversial and has been disputed by some philosophers. Providing an answer to this question could lie in understanding the roles that physical processes play in creating consciousness and the extent to which these processes create our subjective qualities of experience. Several questions about consciousness must be resolved in order to acquire a full understanding of it. These questions include, but are not limited to, whether being conscious could be wholly described in physical terms, such as the aggregation of neural processes in the brain.
Singapore driver returns $900 000 left in his cab to Thai couple Sia Ka Tian, 70, was shocked to find the money in a black paper bag on the back seat on Monday after he dropped the couple off at a shopping centre. "When I saw the money, I thought, trouble is here. I was sure there was at least $200 000 in the bag," the Straits Times quoted the 31-year veteran in the taxi business as saying. But when he brought the money to transport company ComfortDelGro's lost-and-found office, his stunned colleagues counted Sg$1.1 million in thousand-dollar bills. "The money is unimportant to me. It doesn't belong to me, so how can I use it?"
Is Revitalizing A Neighborhood What’s most striking when you enter the brick bunker formerly known as Stock House No. 3 is the green, says Fred Haberman, a cofounder and partner in Urban Organics, a futuristic farm housed inside a long-vacant structure on the former site of Hamm’s Brewery in East St. Paul. "It’s mind-boggling to come into this old building and see so much greenery," he says. "The colors are almost electric. Looking at this kale planted two weeks ago, you’d be shocked at how quickly it’s grown." The "secret sauce" for growing that electric-green kale, chard, and leafy herbs is the nutrient-rich wastewater pumped from four 3,500-gallons tanks of tilapia, which flows through a system of pipes and filters to irrigate and fertilize the plants before returning, clean, to the fish.
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. When light hits a surface, it is either absorbed or reflected, which is what enables us to see objects. However, by engineering materials at the nanoscale, it is possible to produce 'metamaterials': materials which can control the way in which light interacts with them.
Psychic Vampires - How To Stop Psychic Vampires from Draining Your Energy Psychic Vampires: Traits and Symptoms of Psychic Attack | Do You Give or Take Energy from Others? | Quiz: Are You a Psychic Vampire? | Quiz: How Vulnerable Are You to a Psychic Attack? | Cutting Ties from Toxic Relationships | Protection Tips The name psychic vampires immediately reveal our attitude toward people who take energy. Not as obvious, it also reveals our attitudes toward the people from whom they take. Neural correlates of consciousness The Neuronal Correlates of Consciousness (NCC) constitute the smallest set of neural events and structures sufficient for a given conscious percept or explicit memory. This case involves synchronized action potentials in neocortical pyramidal neurons. Neurobiological approach to consciousness A science of consciousness must explain the exact relationship between subjective mental states and brain states, the nature of the relationship between the conscious mind and the electro-chemical interactions in the body. Progress in neurophilosophy has come from focusing on the body rather than the mind.
Scientists offer quantum theory of soul's existence Maybe Patrick Swayze was onto something when he walked off to heaven at the end of 'Ghost'. Source: Supplied According to the quantum consciousness theory, the soul lives within structures called microtubules that live inside brain cells. Urban Organics-Haberman Transforming the food system and strengthening local communities. Haberman believes in the pioneering spirit so much that sometimes we just have to take the plunge ourselves. At a new organic urban farm in St. Paul, we’re quite literally diving in because this farm doesn’t use dirt. It’s all about water. Aquaponics, to be exact.
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.
