Developed by British psychologist Richard Wiseman, a professor at the University of Hertfordshire in England, the Dream:ON app plays a soundscape to evoke the sensation of being in a particular environment during the stage of sleep when dreams occur. “If it’s birds tweeting, then the idea is that you’ll hear birds tweeting in your dream,” said Mr. Wiseman. There are 20 soundscapes with themes such as Wild West, Space Shuttle and A Trip to Tokyo. After choosing a wake up time and soundscape, the user places the iPhone face down on the mattress and the app monitors body movements throughout the night. During the last 20 minutes of sleep, the app plays the soundscape if the dreamer is in REM sleep, a state when body movements are suppressed and dreams most likely occur. Mr.
1902s Women of the Future Trading Cards JF Ptak Science Books Quick Post Again from the interesting and charming La Boite Verte website I've found an interesting suite of French photographic postcards.

"I'm going to miss you" is penned in Spanish in one place, "I'm going to miss your kisses" is written in another. Who owned the discarded shoe and who wrote the words of love may never be known. The shoe is one of hundreds, if not thousands, of discarded items De Leon has collected at sites around the Mexican border in his work to better understand one of the world's largest ongoing modern-day migrations—the exodus of millions of Latinos into the United States. It is estimated that more than half a million immigrants attempt to cross the border in southern Arizona each year. A boot recovered by De Leon in the desert around the U.S. That is something De Leon hopes to change through his Undocumented Migration Project (UMP).
