What Is the Higgs? - Interactive Graphic Imagine never having seen a snowflake. Now prove one exists by probing the slush and mist of melting snow. You can’t see a Higgs boson, and no sensor can pick one out from the Higgs field that it forms. For 50 years, physicists have been building larger and more powerful accelerators to vaporize particles and sift through the debris. In the tunnels at CERN, protons are sped along a track to within a breath of the speed of light, then smashed together in a violent explosion. The protons annihilate each other, releasing a burst of energy. But Einstein tells us that mass is energy, and physics tells us that energy can’t be destroyed. An array of new particles pours from the fireball, energy spun back into tiny specks of mass. A machine surrounds and tracks the debris, bending charged particles as they plow through layers of sensors. Repeat this a million times, then tens of millions, before a second has passed. And keep going because you’re looking for something very rare. Once every few billion impacts,

Encyclopedia of Philosophy - Ofret livet for oss - VG Nett om Sør-Afrika SOWETO (VG) - Jeg gråter hver gang jeg ser bildet av den drepte Hector Pieterson. Han døde for at vi skulle få et bedre liv, sier 16 år gamle, Nthabiseng Molusi. I dag minnes Sør-Afrika at det er 37 år siden Soweto-opprøret. 10-15000 skoleelever og studenter protesterte mot at undervisningen skulle foregå på Afrikaans, det som for mange svarte sørafrikanere var det uforståelige språket til «herrefolket». Hvite politifolk satte hunder på demonstrantene, som svarte med å steine bikkjene. Da ble det gitt ordre om å skyte med skarpt inn i mengden av svarte ungdommer. Da det røde støvet i Sowetos gater la seg, lå 172 døde ungdommer igjen, hundrevis var såret av kulene og mange av dem døde av skadene på sykehuset i dagene etterpå. VGTV:Minnes opprøret Et symbol 13 år gamle Hector Pieterson var et av de første ofrene for apartheidpolitiets kuler. Ved siden av løper Hectors søster, Anthoinette. - Fortsetter kampen Hector ofret livet for oss, sier Nthabiseng Molusi (16). - Et vendepunkt

This is Marilyn.com - Social Network for Marilyn Monroe Fans From her platinum locks to her glamorous wardrobe, she set a standard for American beauty that no one else could match. This is Marilyn! Marilyn Monroe has spread the word "wow" over the United States and Europe for over six decades. Ever since she was born Norma Jeane Mortensen, everyone around her knew she was not just your average little girl. Marilyn's legal guardian she arranged that she be married to the boy next door, James, when she was only 16. Though she cherished having real biological father’s name, she took the studio’s advice and took the first name Marilyn and her grandmother’s name Monroe. Feeling the need to shed her image as the typical Hollywood shallow blonde, Monroe took some time off to take acting classes. On August 5th, 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her California home at the age of 36. Somehow her name will always remain sacred; people with the last name ‘Monroe’ will name their child anything but Marilyn, keeping the name sterilized and untouched.

This charming charlie Dear Morrissey, Just like you, I too can be intensely persistent. I’m sorry to hear about the dishonorable treatment that Harvest has given your new album. I’m reaching out to you in the only way I know possible. Did you know I run a record label? We believe that World peace is none of your business should get the respect it deserves, without executives controlling the channels. Lets talk. Lauren LoPrete Loglady Records Oakland, California

Mystics, Sages, Saints and Gurus | Superconsciousness The Psychophysiological Principle states: Any experience that you have, you have only while you are having a specific brain wave pattern. If your brain wave patterns change then your experience will change. Dr. Brain mapping research studies into different brainwave patterns associated with different states of consciousness has been carried out in major centers throughout the country. In non-sleeping states, these brainwave patterns are associated with various states of “waking” consciousness. Studies here at the Center for Neuroacoustic Research have shown clear and repeated evidence, in patients, of brainwave frequency patterns below the traditionally accepted lowest Delta rhythms of 0.5 Hz. There have also been reports in the EEG literature from other researchers, that there is evidence of extraordinary states of consciousness associated with higher-than-Beta brainwave activity.

Her trosser Mandela advarsler om attentat (Dagbladet): For noen uker ble det ikke regnet som veldig sannynlig at Nelson Mandela skulle få oppleve sin 95-årsdag i dag. Og attpåtil med oppadgående helserapporter fra familiemedlemmer på bursdagsbesøk på sykehuset. Men på 1990-tallet var det langt mindre sannsynlig at den sørafrikanske frihetshelten skulle stå skulder til skulder med disse to herrene på et åpent lasteplan. Det historiske bildet av de tre smilende, gamle rivalene - oftere benevnt som fiender - på den gule pickup'en gjennom den symboltunge bydelen Soweto i Johannesburg, er tatt av daværende Røde Kors-medarbeider Gry Isberg etter det første frie valget i Sør-Afrika i 1994. Ble strengt advart Til venstre for Mandela (og til høyre på bildet) står Pik Botha (81) - den siste utenriksministeren for det forhatte rasekilleregimet og Nasjonalpartiet. Ved Mandelas høyre skulder hilser hans bitre rival på frigjøringssiden, Inkathapartiets Mangosuthu Buthulezi (84). - Det var en svært spent stemning selv om valgresultatet var klart.

Sind Sie so schlau wie Ihre Ur-Urgroßeltern? Testen Sie es! » Fort Vinci Posted by Sven on Sonntag, Juni 9, 2013 · Leave a Comment Sie haben eventuell schon einmal vom Flynn-Effekt gehört, der besagt, dass die Intelligenz mit jeder Generation ein bisschen zunimmt. Frisch aus dem Labor kommt nun eine Studie , die das Gegenteil bewiesen haben will: Verglichen mit Menschen aus dem Viktorianischen Zeitalter sind wir weniger intelligent. Das Forscherteam verglich die Reaktionszeiten auf visuelle Reize und stellte fest, dass die zur Zeit der „industriellen Revolution“ von „Sherlock Holmes“ und „Kinderarbeit“, deutlich kürzer gewesen ist. ‘Reaction times are a real measure, with a reasonably large correlation with IQ, so this is an alarming finding and needs further investigation sagt James Thompson von der British Psychological Society. Das Bittere ist, dass nicht nur die Reaktionszeiten sowohl von Damals als auch von Heute bekannt sind: While an average man in 1889 had a reaction time of 183 milliseconds, this has slowed to 253ms in 2004.

Tantric “Sluts” or Living Goddesses: Why it Matters With recent media revelations about ritual sex, nude yoga and “yogasms” – sex has become a hot topic in the yoga world. Well, in honour of Women’s History Month, I’m joining the fray. Because let’s face it, nothing is more juicy or salacious than the forgotten high priestesses of sex, the “debauched” yoginis of Tantra. While much conventional scholarship has designated these women as low-caste “sluts” exploited for ritual purposes, religious scholar Miranda Shaw has unearthed a very different history. Her book is a biographic treasure trove of Tantric women teachers spanning the Pala Period of India (8th -13th centuries). Female Tantrics were called by many names, Dakinis (woman who flies) Vidyadharim (knowledge-holder) Vira (heroine) but the most common term was Yogini (keeper of the occult secrets). Defining the scope of Tantra is well beyond the purview of this post, but suffice to say the “left hand path” was no ascetic practise. Quite the different view of sex than we have today.
