The Science Of Why You Should Spend Your Money On Experiences, Not Things Most people are in the pursuit of happiness. There are economists who think happiness is the best indicator of the health of a society. We know that money can make you happier, though after your basic needs are met, it doesn't make you that much happier. There's a very logical assumption that most people make when spending their money: that because a physical object will last longer, it will make us happier for a longer time than a one-off experience like a concert or vacation. "One of the enemies of happiness is adaptation," says Dr. So rather than buying the latest iPhone or a new BMW, Gilovich suggests you'll get more happiness spending money on experiences like going to art exhibits, doing outdoor activities, learning a new skill, or traveling. Gilovich's findings are the synthesis of psychological studies conducted by him and others into the Easterlin paradox, which found that money buys happiness, but only up to a point.

Those Who Make A film by Stefan José Instagram: @_stefanjose_ The Artisan Press, Byron Bay. artisanpress.com.au/ As the morning sun breaks through popcorn cloud on Australia's most easterly point, soft infectious rhythms roll out of a small studio in the Byron Arts and Industry estate. As a leader of the letterpress revival in Australia, The Artisan Press has been playing the letterpress tune since 1999. Our People The Artisan Press owner, Wayne Davis, is an award winning printer who served his apprenticeship in the 1980s with Australia’s leading music industry printer, Z. Wayne's print background covers offset, letterpress, intaglio, screenprinting, digital, real pre-press (plate-making, screens, negatives), finishing and binding, photography, graphic design and typesetting.
A bowling ball and feather fall in world's biggest vacuum chamber You probably already know how this one ends, but that doesn't make watching it play out any less spectacular. [optional caption text here] Image: [name here]/Shutterstock The combination of bowling ball and feather is the perfect way to demonstrate air resistance, also known as drag. British physicist Brian Cox wanted to see this primary-school problem play out in a vacuum, where there is zero air resistance to mess with the results. When not in use, the chamber contains around 30 tonnes of air, but when it’s turned on, all but around 2 grams of air are sucked out to create an artificial vacuum.
Louis Theroux's favorite documentaries A bowling ball and feather fall in world's biggest vacuum chamber The combination of bowling ball and feather is the perfect way to demonstrate air resistance, also known as drag. Because the shape of the feather allows it to endure way more air resistance than the bowling ball, it takes much longer to fall to the ground. British physicist Brian Cox wanted to see this primary-school problem play out in a vacuum, where there is zero air resistance to mess with the results. Filming for his new BBC 2 show, Human Universe, he travelled to the US and visited the NASA Space Power Facility in Ohio. When not in use, the chamber contains around 30 tonnes of air, but when it’s turned on, all but around 2 grams of air are sucked out to create an artificial vacuum. Source: io9
True Films Fibonacci Sequence Watch Free Documentaries Online | Documentary Heaven Fibonacci Series … Fibonacci Series … Fibonacci Series … The Miracle of 528 Hz Solfeggio & Fibonacci Numbers Solfeggio tones create music to calm an overactive mindand send us towards connecting with the divine.According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. It connects your heart, your spiritual essence, to the spiraling reality of heaven and earth. The Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of theoriginal Solfeggio musical scale. Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. 528 resolves to a 6, the icon for physical manifestation. 528 is known as the ‘Miracle’ tone which brings remarkable and extraordinary changes. The 528Hz tone alone is associated with ‘DNA Repair‘ Their results were certified by Dr. Llewelyn S. Sources: Bradley, P.
Nothing is solid: This is the world of Quantum Physics Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in milliseconds, over and over again. Nothing is solid. This is the world of Quantum Physics. They have proven that thoughts are what put together and hold together this ever-changing energy field into the ‘objects’ that we see. So why do we see a person instead of a flashing cluster of energy? Think of a movie reel. A movie is a collection of about 24 frames a second. Think of television. A TV tube is simply a tube with heaps of electrons hitting the screen in a certain way, creating the illusion of form and motion. This is what all objects are anyway. Each of these senses has a specific spectrum (for example, a dog hears a different range of sound than you do; a snake sees a different spectrum of light than you do; and so on). It is not complete, nor is it accurate. You literally become what you think about most. What are those made up of? Cells. Atoms.
