Capgras delusion The delusion most commonly occurs in patients diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, but has also been seen in patients suffering from brain injury and dementia. It presents often in individuals with a neurodegenerative disease, particularly at an older age. It has also been reported as occurring in association with diabetes, hypothyroidism and migraine attacks. In one isolated case, the Capgras delusion was temporarily induced in a healthy subject by the drug ketamine. It occurs more frequently in females, with a female:male ratio of 3:2. The information gathered from studying people with the Capgras delusion has theoretical implications for understanding face perception and neuroanatomy in both healthy and unhealthy individuals. History Presentation The following two case reports are examples of the Capgras delusion in a psychiatric setting: Taken from Passer and Warnock, 1991: Taken from Sinkman, 2008: Taken from Lucchelli and Spinnler, 2007:
Conspiracy theory A conspiracy theory is an explanatory proposition that accuses two or more persons, a group, or an organization of having caused or covered up, through secret planning and deliberate action, an illegal or harmful event or situation. Some scholars suggest that people formulate conspiracy theories to explain, for example, power relations in social groups and the existence of evil forces. It has been suggested by some thinkers that conspiracy theories have chiefly psychological or socio-political origins. Proposed psychological origins include projection; the personal need to explain “a significant event [with] a significant cause;" and the product of various kinds and stages of thought disorder, such as paranoid disposition, ranging in severity to diagnosable mental illnesses.

Age of Aquarius Overview The approximate 2,150 years for each age corresponds to the average time it takes for the vernal equinox to move from one constellation of the zodiac into the next. This can be computed by dividing the earth's 25,800 year gyroscopic precession period by twelve, the number of Zodiac constellations used by astrologers. Astrologers do not agree on when the Aquarian age will start or even if it has already started. Nicholas Campion in The Book of World Horoscopes lists various references from mainly astrological sources for the start of the Age of Aquarius. Astrological ages exist as a result of precession of the equinoxes. Astrological meaning Astrologers believe that an astrological age affects mankind, possibly by influencing the rise and fall of civilisations or cultural tendencies. Many astrologers consider the appearance of many of these Aquarian developments over the last few centuries indicative of the proximity of the Aquarian age. David Williams
10 Search Engines to Explore the Invisible Web It’s not Spiderman’s latest web slinging tool but something that’s more real world. The Invisible Web (or The Deep Web) refers to the part of the Internet that’s not indexed by the search engines. Most of us think that that search powerhouses like Google and Bing are like the Great Oracle — they see everything. Unfortunately, they can’t because they aren’t divine at all; they are just web spiders who index pages by following one hyperlink after the other. And, there are some places where a spider cannot enter. Take library databases which need a password for access. Search engine technology has progressed by leaps and bounds. It’s not that you can’t access the invisible web at all. 1. This is considered to be the oldest catalog on the web and was started by started by Tim Berners-Lee, the creator of the web. For instance, there are 300 sub-libraries with their own categories within the main library. You can go vertically into the categories or use the search bar. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

During the 3rd millennium BC, a very intimate cultural symbiosis developed between the Sumerians and the Akkadians, which included widespread bilingualism. The influence of Sumerian on Akkadian (and vice versa) is evident in all areas, from lexical borrowing on a massive scale, to syntactic, morphological, and phonological convergence. This has prompted scholars to refer to Sumerian and Akkadian in the third millennium as a Sprachbund (area of linguistic convergence). Varieties Stages The history of written Sumerian can be divided into several periods: Archaic Sumerian — 31st–26th century BC,Old or Classical Sumerian — 26th–23rd century. This proto-literate tablet records more than just the transfer of land - the beginning of the transition from a pictograph to phonetic writing system can be seen here. Dialects Classification
List of country subdivisions by GDP over 100 billion US dollars This is a list of first-level country subdivisions which have a nominal Gross domestic product in excess of US$ 100 billion. Those subdivisions which are the largest in their respective countries are shown in bold. Note: the use of nominal GDP and currency conversion in this list makes inter-area comparison difficult List See also References Human penis size Different sized penises of two individuals; in erect (left) and flaccid (right) state The most accurate measurement of the human penis comes from several measurements at different times since there is natural minor variability in size due to arousal level, time of day, room temperature, frequency of sexual activity, and reliability of measurement. When compared to other primates, including large primates such as the gorilla, the human penis is largest, both in absolute terms and relative to the rest of the body. Measurements vary, with studies that rely on self-measurement reporting a significantly higher average than those with staff measuring. Most of human penis growth happens between infancy and the age of five, and between about one year after the onset of puberty and, at latest, approximately 17 years of age. A statistically significant correlation between penis size and the size of other body parts has not been found in research. History Studies on penis size Length Flaccid length
» 33 Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True, What Every Person Should Know… Alex Jones New World Order Report January 6, 2010 After reading the article released by Cracked.com, I decided to update and revise their sloppy work. Their article had only 7. I can name 33 and I am planning on releasing a revised list soon with up to 50. ost people can’t resist getting the details on the latest conspiracy theories, no matter how far-fetched they may seem. is a term that originally was a neutral descriptor for any claim of civil, criminal or political conspiracy. To many, conspiracy theories are just human nature. Skeptics are important in achieving an objective view of reality, however, skeptism is not the same as reinforcing the official storyline. In fact, if one were to look into conspiracy theories, they will largely find that thinking about a conspiracy is associated with lunacy and paranoia. I find it extremely odd that the assumption is on thousands of participants in a conspiracy. A d v e r t i s e m e n t A 15-year-old girl named “Nayirah” testified before the U.S.
Pyramid A pyramid's design, with the majority of the weight closer to the ground, and with the pyramidion on top means that less material higher up on the pyramid will be pushing down from above. This distribution of weight allowed early civilizations to create stable monumental structures. Pyramids have been built by civilizations in many parts of the world. For thousands of years, the largest structures on Earth were pyramids—first the Red Pyramid in the Dashur Necropolis and then the Great Pyramid of Khufu, both of Egypt, the latter the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World still remaining. Khufu's Pyramid is built mainly of limestone (with large red granite blocks used in some interior chambers), and is considered an architectural masterpiece. Ancient monuments Mesopotamia Chogha Zanbil is an ancient Elamite complex in the Khuzestan province of Iran. The Mesopotamians built the earliest pyramidal structures, called ziggurats.
