Comment la Terre change sous nos yeux | Autres sujets émergents | Sujets émergents Merci aux satellites ! L'article ci-dessous nous apporte des preuves ! " La planète change, et nous en sommes fortement responsables. Si certaines évolutions sont naturelles (comme par exemple les éruptions volcaniques), l'activité humaine, du fait de l'urbanisation galopante, de l'industrialisation polluante ou de la déforestation massive, accélère grandement le changement climatique, n'en déplaisent aux climatosceptiques. C'est ce que montre la NASA américaine dans des séries d'images satellite, World of Change, qui documente comment les terres, les océans, l'atmosphère et le soleil de notre planète évoluent année après année. Un projet tant captivant qu'édifiant. Ces transformations ont été captées par huit satellites du programme Landsat, un projet du Centre américain de veille géologique des Etats-Unis (USGS) et de la NASA lancé en 1972 - qui ont également été à l'origine du projet similaire Timelapse, déjà évoqué sur ce blog.

Zen, Galileo and Global Warming | Patriot Dreams Followers of Zen have a word that specifically describes a special event, a recognition of some profound truth or reality – satori. Satori is often described as a sudden awakening, and I recently experienced satori for myself. All of us have had fun with oxymorons. We laugh at them, enjoy them and then ignore them as if they were Obama speeches. The common thread that hold all oxymorons together is the use of two words that individually convey, by definition, opposite ideas or concepts. There are so many oxymorons in everyday use that they no longer even strike us as peculiar. The more often a particular oxymoron is repeated, the less we tend to recognize the inherent contradiction that is embodied by the words used until the contradiction is often completely lost. As I was reading an article that was floating around the blogosphere, the author used the phrase “settled science”, but in its context, the author was communicating that the science was far from being settled.

Google Book Downloader - Home 5 traditional musical instruments from Ireland 5 traditional musical instruments from Ireland Ireland’s traditional music (or trad as we call it) has been around centuries — we even discovered a set of wooden pipes in County Wicklow that date back to the Stone Age to prove it. Here, we look at five trad instruments that musicians from Ireland have been blowing, strumming, picking, plucking and thumping for a very long time indeed. Bodhrán Pronounced “bow-rawn,” this is known as the heartbeat of trad music for good reason. Some speculate that the instrument served a double purpose as a husk sifter and grain tray. Hear it at: O’Hanlon’s Bar, Mullaghbawn, County Armagh Uilleann pipes These ancient pipes have been mesmerising listeners with their haunting tones since the 5th Century. Today, though, Belfast-man John McSherry is our proudest piper and a true master. Hear them at: Cultúrlann, Belfast, County Antrim Celtic Harp In 1792, the Belfast Harp Festival saw the best players competing for prizes. Fiddle Looks can be deceiving.

Cyc (projet) Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. On peut présenter comme exemples-types de connaissances représentées dans la base de données : « Tout arbre est une plante » et « Les plantes finissent par mourir ». Lorsqu’on lui demande si les arbres meurent, le moteur d'inférence est en mesure de tirer la conclusion évidente et de répondre correctement à la question. La base de connaissances (KB, pour Knowledge Base) contient plus d’un million d’assertions, de règles et d’idées relevant du sens commun, définies par des êtres humains. Elles sont formulées dans le langage CycL, qui est basé sur le calcul des prédicats et dont la syntaxe est similaire à celle du langage Lisp. Une grande partie des travaux en cours sur le projet Cyc continue à relever de l’ingénierie des connaissances, la formalisation manuelle d’informations (« facts ») sur le monde, et la mise au point de mécanismes d’inférence efficaces appliqués à ces connaissances. Les prédicats fondamentaux sont #$isa et #$genls.

Celtic Music Instruments From the thump of the Bodhrán to the airy rasp of the wooden flute, celtic music is known by its instruments. Here's an introduction to the main players, with links to more information, for players and afficionados. Fiddle The fiddle is the mainstay of most Scottish and Irish music. The instrument is exactly the same as a violin; fiddle is simply the term used in traditional music. Flute Flutes of one sort or another have been played in the celtic countries for over a thousand years. Tin Whistle (pennywhistle) The simplest and cheapest of traditional instruments, yet not so simple to master. More information: Ceolas Tin Whistle guide. Bagpipes & uilleann pipes Several forms of bagpipe are used in celtic music. The Scottish highland pipes are the loudest, played standing, usually in pipe bands. Bagpipe FAQ Bagpipe Web David Daye's Bagpipe site, for Scottish and uilleann pipes. Bombarde This is a small oboe-like shawm with a penetrating sound, used widely in Breton music.

Open for discussion: Graham Hancock, Rupert Sheldrake, TEDxWhitechapel UPDATE: Please see our new blog post Graham Hancock and Rupert Sheldrake, a fresh take, which replaces the x-ed out text below. To discuss the talks, view them here: The debate about Rupert Sheldrake’s talkThe debate about Graham Hancock’s talk After due diligence, including a survey of published scientific research and recommendations from our Science Board and our community, we have decided that Graham Hancock’s and Rupert Sheldrake’s talks from TEDxWhitechapel should be removed from distribution on the TEDx YouTube channel. We’re not censoring the talks. All talks on the TEDxTalks channel represent the opinion of the speaker, not of TED or TEDx, but we feel a responsibility not to provide a platform for talks which appear to have crossed the line into pseudoscience. UPDATE: Please find Rupert Sheldrake’s response below the video window. According to our science board, Rupert Sheldrake bases his argument on several major factual errors, which undermine the arguments of talk.

Evolutionary Holacracy : Expérience Intermarché et « Holacratie évolutive » Une Nouvelle Année, Une Nouvelle façon de penser. Et si nous commencions l’année 2013 par un grand OUI? C’est une nouvelle année qui commence, un nouveau cycle. Et si aprés avoir tant entendu parler de fin du monde nous nous concentrions sur quelques choses de plus… positif. Si nous mettons en avant cette très célèbre citation d’Albert Einstein sur notre site, « les problèmes auxquels nous sommes confrontés ne peuvent être résolu au niveau et avec la façon de penser qui les a engendrés » c’est avant partout parce qu’elle est porteuse d’un sens profond de notre relation à la vie. Pour chacun d’entre nous cela veut dire se poser la question du sens de notre existence et comme un fractal, cela se répercute à chaque niveau de notre existence. La vie est-elle quelque chose de positif? Et si nous faisions de cette nouvelle année l’occasion du retour de l’optimisne? C’est avec cette positivité que nous vous souhaitons à tous de vivre cette nouvelle année! Que la bonne année soit bonne!
