An easy way to demonstrate this is in the car. When the car accelerates, you (and all other objects in the car) appear to be pushed backwards because the car is moving faster than you were as a resting object. A sudden deceleration makes you fly forward in your seat, because your body was now traveling at a particular speed and was going to keep going at that rate. This is why seat belts are important.

Historical photos (part 3) Historical photos (part 3) ‘Powder Monkey’ on the USS New Hampshire (1864) ‘The moment a dragon is slain’ Puppet Show (Paris 1963) Russell Brand Speaks of Reptilian Overlords, Spiritual Revolution & The Illuminati Everyone is talking about Russell Brand these days. Whether it’s his well spoken nature, subject matter or the fact that he is a celebrity so people will suddenly listen, he’s a hot topic and I don’t mind considering what he is sharing. Recently Russell went at it with Jeremy Paxman discussing the need for a world revolution and encouraging people to begin standing up for one. He brings attention to the fact that politically and systematically our world is broken and he feels voting will never fix the situation regardless of our beliefs behind the system of democracy.

Lucie & Simon - Earth_vision In the group of images entitled Earth Vision, the menacing atmosphere continues, but takes a relatively concrete turn, as though the MacGuffin proffered its identity. Nature and civilization equally provide the seemingly menacing forces - be it in the inhospitableness of cities or the forces of nature. But in reality, it is the light that makes these photographed settings pass into the unreal or surreal. Nature and civilization are also the sources of this light that is sometimes artificial, sometimes natural, and sometimes both at once ; and the photographer’s colour system contibutes to this unsetting atmophere. The fact that individuals well and truly lose themselves in these photographed settings, minute in the middle of the surroundings, reduced to the size of Tom Thumb, further increases the settings’ unreal and threatening nature. What’s more, it is a contrast between the form and the contents.

press The Brown Palace Hotel in Denver was built in 1892. (Denver Post file) When Red Rocks Park and its adjacent Mount Morrison Civilian Conservation Corps Camp were named a National Historic Landmark earlier this month, joining Civic Center as the only two such honorees in Denver, it spawned a water cooler question:

Unbelievable Facts About Our Universe Exoplanet covered in burning ice Gliese 436 b is a Neptune-sized exoplanet located about 33 light-years away in the constellation Leo. Astronomers believe that it embodies exotic states of water that causes its surface to be covered in burning ice. Bontebok are Incredibly Handsome 'Extinct in the Wild' Creatures photo: Nico Smit photo: Ecoprint Habitat: South Africa & LesothoStatus: Least Concern This handsome creature is called the Bontebok (Damaliscus pygargus pygarus), one of the rarest antelopes in Southern Africa. There are actually two subspecies of the bontebok; the bontebok (Damaliscus pygargus pygarus), occurring naturally in the Fynbos and Renosterveld areas of the Western Cape, and the blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi) occurring in the highveld. The blesbok differs from the bontebok in two ways: First, the bontebok has an unbroken white facial blaze, whereas the blesbok has the white blaze broken by a brown band between the eyes.

440hz Music - Conspiracy To Detune Us From Natural 432Hz Harmonics? Most music worldwide has been tuned to 440 hertz since the International Standards Organization (ISO) endorsed it in 1953. The recent rediscoveries of the vibratory / oscillatory nature of the universe indicate that this contemporary international concert pitch standard may generate an unhealthy effect or anti-social behavior in the consciousness of human beings. A=432 Hz, known as Verdi’s ‘A’ is an alternative tuning that is mathematically consistent with the universe. Music based on 432 Hz transmits beneficial healing energy, because it is a pure tone of math fundamental to nature. There is a theory that the change from 432 Hz to 440 Hz was dictated by Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels.
