GAZZETTA DEL APOCALIPSIS | POR QUÉ NO ESTALLA UNA REVOLUCIÓN ¿Te has preguntado alguna vez porqué nadie reacciona ante la infame oleada de opresión y abusos de todo tipo que estamos sufriendo? ¿No te produce perplejidad el hecho de que tras tantas y tantas revelaciones sobre casos de corrupción, injusticias, robos y burlas a la ley y a la población en general, a la cual se le ha robado literalmente el presente y el futuro, no suceda absolutamente nada? ¿Te has preguntado porqué no estalla una Revolución masiva y por qué todo el mundo parece estar dormido o hipnotizado? Estos últimos años se han hecho públicas informaciones de todo tipo que deberían haber dañado la estructura del Sistema hasta sus mismísimos cimientos y sin embargo la maquinaria sigue intacta, sin ni tan solo un arañazo superficial. Y esto pone de manifiesto un hecho extremadamente preocupante que está sucediendo justo ante nuestras narices y al que nadie parece prestarle atención. Parece increíble, pero los acontecimientos lo demuestran a diario. El caso de España es palmario.

The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying In his foreword to the book, the 14th Dalai Lama says: In this timely book, Sogyal Rinpoche focuses on how to understand the true meaning of life, how to accept death, and how to help the dying, and the dead...Death and dying provide a meeting point between the Tibetan Buddhist and modern scientific traditions. I believe both have a great deal to contribute to each other on the level of understanding and practical benefit. Sogyal Rinpoche is particularly well placed to facilitate this meeting; having been born and brought up in the Tibetan tradition, he has received instructions from some of our greatest Lamas. Having also benefited from a modern education and lived and worked in the West, he has become well acquainted with Western ways of thought. Conception and writing[edit] Background[edit] Writing process[edit] Later, while Rinpoche was leading retreats in Germany and Australia, he would send through long faxes to Gaffney and Harvey full of corrections, changes and new paragraphs.

Más de dos años de un ir y venir que no tenía fin. Al cabo de un par de semanas me paseaba por su oficina para preguntarle cualquier cosa. Arriba de la cajuela de su auto, en la cabaña de visitas de su familia, en los baños de la universidad, por debajo de su escritorio. -Qué cosas tan deliciosas me haces, cariño, ¡no dejes de provocarlas! Yo obedecía sin objeción alguna. Por más que se quiera desconocer, en el fondo uno sabe lo que deja tras de sí con el paso de la existencia. Medía mis pasos, practicaba argumentos, ademanes que emplearía en su presencia. Mis días se atormentaron, las noches fueron losas pesadas que intenté aminorar a base de alcohol e Internet. Todos los días, a eso de las diez de la mañana, lograba abrir los párpados. La fotografías que acompaña este texto, pertenece a Alan Yee

Mnemonic major system The Major System (also called the phonetic number system, phonetic mnemonic system, or Herigone's mnemonic system) is a mnemonic technique used to aid in memorizing numbers. The system works by converting numbers into consonant sounds, then into words by adding vowels. The system works on the principle that images can be remembered more easily than numbers. The system[edit] Each numeral is associated with one or more consonants. The groups of similar sounds and the rules for applying the mappings are almost always fixed, but other hooks and mappings can be used as long as the person using the system can remember them and apply them consistently. Each numeral maps to a set of similar sounds with similar mouth and tongue positions. For most people it would be easier to remember 3.1415927 (an approximation of the mathematical constant pi) as: Short term visual memory of imagined scenes allows large numbers of digits to be memorized with ease, though usually only for a short time. History[edit]

Танатология Танатоло́гия (от др.-греч. θάνατος — смерть и λόγος — учение) — раздел теоретической и практической медицины, изучающий состояние организма в конечной стадии патологического процесса, динамику и механизмы умирания, непосредственные причины смерти, клинические, биохимические и морфологические проявления постепенного прекращения жизнедеятельности организма. Термин «танатология» в обиход медицинской и биологической науки был введен по предложению И. И. Мечникова. В начале XX века танатологию было принято делить на общую, которая изучала статику и динамику смерти, морфологические и патофункциональные изменения, постмортальные явления, взаимодействие трупа с окружающей средой, технику судебно-медицинского или патологоанатомического исследования трупа, и частную, которая рассматривала виды смерти, основные и непосредственные причины смерти при конкретных заболеваниях или состояниях и их диагностику на трупе, а также трупные явления, их сопровождающие.

La locura en la literatura Twitter745 745facebook4064 4064pinterest1 1google plus8Share 8linked in0 0email0 0stumbleupon0Share 0meneame0Share Share Michel Foucault explica en su Historia de la locura en la época clásica cómo a partir de la desaparición de la lepra, la locura llegó a ocupar su posición de exclusión. La verdadera locura quizá no sea otra cosa que la sabiduría misma que, cansada de descubrir las vergüenzas del mundo, ha tomado la inteligente resolución de volverse loca. Esta es una pequeña lista que expone algunos títulos que tocan el tema de la locura: La historia de un loco, John Katzenbach “Nos asustan los cambios.

Sleep medicine Sleep medicine is a medical specialty or subspecialty devoted to the diagnosis and therapy of sleep disturbances and disorders. From the middle of the 20th century, research has provided increasing knowledge and answered many questions about sleep-wake functioning.[1] The rapidly evolving field[2] has become a recognized medical subspecialty in some countries. Dental sleep medicine also qualifies for board certification in some countries. Properly organized, minimum 12-month, postgraduate training programs are still being defined in the United States.[3][4] In some countries, the sleep researchers and the physicians who treat patients may be the same people. The first sleep clinics in the United States were established in the 1970s by interested physicians and technicians; the study, diagnosis and treatment of obstructive sleep apnea were their first tasks. Scope and classification[edit] History[edit] The concept of sleep medicine belongs to the second half of the 20th century. Asia[edit]

Through the Light: A Near-Death Experience "Through the Light" Mellen-Thomas Benedict's Near-Death Experience Mellen-Thomas Benedict is an artist who survived a near-death experience in 1982. He was dead for over an hour and a half and during that time, he rose up out of his body and went into the Light. Mr. The road to death In 1982 I died from terminal cancer. So I determined that this was really just between me and God. On the other hand, as a self-employed stained-glass artist at the time, I had no medical insurance whatsoever. The light of God I remember waking up one morning at home about 4:30 am, and I just knew that this was it. There was this Light shining. The Light responded The information transferred to me was that your beliefs shape the kind of feedback you are getting before the Light. As I asked the Light to keep explaining, I understood what the Higher Self matrix is. The revelations coming from the Light seemed to go on and on, then I asked the Light, "Does this mean that humankind will be saved?" "Yes!"

Las cartas que intercambiaron Einstein y Diego Rivera Entre los temas más recurrentes en la obra de Diego Rivera, se incluyeron la libertad de expresión y las libertades políticas. Curiosamente, en un Estados Unidos completamente anticomunista, el muralista mexicano logró obtener un éxito considerable, a pesar de su constante alusión al proletariado y la lucha de clases. En 1933 la familia Rockefeller canceló un trabajo muralístico que había encargado a Rivera, pues incorporaba escenas socialistas; sin embargo, la obra fue pagada como si se hubiese realizado. De esta manera, Diego Rivera creó su obra “Retrato de Estados Unidos”, misma que pintó en paneles portátiles para la New Worker’s School, dirigida por militantes comunistas de corte trotskista. Dichos paneles eran transportables porque la escuela cambiaba de sede constantemente –pues carecía de un financiamiento estable. Eventualmente Einstein vería algunas fotografías del trabajo de Rivera y, conmovido, le envió una carta, entre cuyas líneas destaca la siguiente:

Brain fitness The term brain fitness reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain, in analogy to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body. Although there is strong evidence that aspects of brain structure remain plastic throughout life, and that high levels of mental activity are associated with reduced risks of age-related dementia, scientific support for the concept of "brain fitness" is limited. The term is virtually never used in the scientific literature, but is commonly used in the context of self-help books and commercial products.[1] It first came into play in the 1980s, and appeared in the titles of self-help books in 1989[2] and 1990.[3] §Overview[edit] Brain fitness can be measured physically at the cellular level by neurogenesis, the creation of new neurons, and increased functional connections of synapses and dendrites between neurons. §Neurogenesis[edit] Main article: Neurogenesis §Mental stimulation[edit]
