Global Climate Change RV Study: 2008-2013 Farsight's Climate Project A Global Climate Change Remote-Viewing Study Multiple Realities, Timelines, and Events 2008-2013 Introduction: We at The Farsight Institute are currently engaged in a fascinating study using remote viewing to study climate and planetary change between the 1 June 2008 and 1 June 2013. The initial results appear dramatic, but our "Early Update" published February 2013 (see below) suggests something much more limited. Our web site visitors are reminded that this is research, not certitude. Remember what Albert Einstein once said, "If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research, would it?"

Personal Finance for Young Professionals - Posts - Quora (x-post from my blog, Personal Finance for Young Professionals) One of the most valuable classes at Cal that I attended was not an engineering class, nor was it technical. It was UGBA 196, Personal Financial Management. Professor Selinger seared into our brain about “the magic of compounding” and how it is ever so important that managing your personal finance while you are still young will reap benefits orders of magnitudes higher than if you started later. I’m writing this guide because ever since I took that class, I have learned how important it is to understand personal finance, and that especially for young working professionals, it is extremely important to start saving correctly right now. I am not claiming to be an expert (hardly one) in managing money, and you definitely should do your own research before doing anything.

About Ars Electronica What is Ars Electronica? Art, technology, society. Since 1979, Ars Electronica has sought out interlinkages and congruities, causes and effects. The ideas circulating here are innovative, radical, eccentric in the best sense of that term. They influence our everyday life—our lifestyle, our way of life, every single day. Can a neurotypical understand what autism is? I have recently become more and more interested in the relevance of an epistemological question for its consequences for social and political philosophy, namely: To what extent are certain types of knowledge only accessible to those who have had certain experiences? And how do one’s values, judgements, etc. change (or not) after having lived through certain experiences? Intuitively, it seems so obvious to me that some sorts of knowledge (or perhaps ‘understanding’ is a better word?) cannot, or can only in an extremely difficult way, be reached without having had certain relevant experiences. We can all think of concrete examples in our own lives (e.g. how one’s views on death and sorrow change if for the first time one loses a very dear loved one; how views on human vulnerability change if one becomes a parent etc).

List of common misconceptions From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This incomplete list is not intended to be exhaustive. This list corrects erroneous beliefs that are currently widely held about notable topics. Maximizing versus satisficing The distinction between maximizing and satisficing was introduced by Simon (1955, 1956, 1957). These constructs represent two different strategies to choose an option from a set of possible alternatives. Individuals who maximize consider all possibilities comprehensively and strive to select the best option. These individuals, for example, frequently switch to other radio or TV stations, even when reasonably satisfied with the current program, to ensure they are exposed to the best alternative.

Tarasov and Tarasova One of the very first physics books that I had purchased in Nagpur from the used book sellers which was not a story book was a book by Aldina Tarasova and Lev Tarasov. The title of the book was Questions and Answers in School Physics. The book was written in style of dialogue between a teacher and students, with misconceptions of the students explored in all branches of basic physics at the school level. To put it in the words of the authors themselves: (Reader) will find this text to be perhaps more like a freely told story or, rather a freely conducted discussion. This is a book on physics education.
