China's pollution-cleaning towers will be the world's tallest At one kilometre high, these new towers will clean the water and air around them while generating sustainable power for neighbouring buildings. The towers will be built in the city of Wuhan in China, with one slightly taller than the other. With a planned height of almost a kilometre, the tallest of the pair will edge out the Burj Khalifa in Dubai as the tallest building in the world. They’ll also be two of the most environmentally friendly buildings ever made. According to Adele Peters at FastCompany, the pair will be built on an island, and the larger tower will be responsible for 'feeding' sustainable power to the smaller tower.

Seven Traits of Highly Magical People Seven Traits of Highly Magical People (By Carolyn Elliott) 1. You know you’re magic. This is the big one. In their heart of hearts, everyone is magic. A Spinning Mosaic of Patterns Drawn with Wet Clay on a Potter’s Wheel As a person who’s spent more than a few hours at the seat of a potter’s wheel I can attest to the strangely soothing act of doodling around with wet clay sludge (called slip) before or after throwing a pot. As fun as it is, it’s still somewhat surprising to see the act elevated to this level of artistry by Michael Gardner Mikhail Sadovnikov who blurs the line between performance and visual art as he creates pattern after pattern on an empty wheel.

Theta Wave Brain Synchronization This is a replication of a Theta wave entrainment rhythm first created by scientists in the 1960s to lull patients into a deep, colorful, creative dream state. Listen to it for 10 minutes, longer if you can. The longer it plays, the deeper you’ll go. So go. How It Works The human brain produces different levels of electrical activity depending on the amount of information it is processing.

Understanding the Fibonacci Sequence and Golden Ratio The Fibonacci Sequence The Fibonacci sequence is possibly the most simple recurrence relation occurring in nature. It is 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89, 144… each number equals the sum of the two numbers before it, and the difference of the two numbers succeeding it. It is an infinite sequence which goes on forever as it develops. The Golden Ratio/Divine Ratio or Golden Mean - The quotient of any Fibonacci number and it’s predecessor approaches Phi, represented as ϕ (1.618), the Golden ratio.

Exclusive: Controversial US scientist creates deadly new flu strain for pandemic research - Science - News Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin-Madison has genetically manipulated the 2009 strain of pandemic flu in order for it to “escape” the control of the immune system’s neutralising antibodies, effectively making the human population defenceless against its reemergence. Most of the world today has developed some level of immunity to the 2009 pandemic flu virus, which means that it can now be treated as less dangerous “seasonal flu”. However, The Independent understands that Professor Kawaoka intentionally set out to see if it was possible to convert it to a pre-pandemic state in order to analyse the genetic changes involved. The study is not published, however some scientists who are aware of it are horrified that Dr Kawaoka was allowed to deliberately remove the only defence against a strain of flu virus that has already demonstrated its ability to create a deadly pandemic that killed as many as 500,000 people in the first year of its emergence.

How To Exit The Reincarnation System Gregg Prescott, M.S., In5D GuestWaking Times We have all heard about the tunnel of light that our soul follows upon leaving the physical body, but what is the true meaning of the life review? Why does a life review almost always involve having us continuously looping back into this 3rd dimensional reality, and what can we do to stop these cycles of reincarnation?

The University is a Public Good The Assault on the Universities continues apace. The Sussex Occupation has built the strongest case for the defence of the University as a public good. In their contestation of management’s outsourcing agenda, Sussex represents an opportunity to reinvigorate our resistance to the marketization and privatization of higher education. Across the world, as governments continue to abet the spread of neoliberal logic across campuses, students are resisting. On the streets of Santiago and Athens, they march. In the lecture halls of Bucharest and Indiana, they occupy. Here at Warwick we are continuing this fight. The Warwick Anti-Privatization Forum seeks to open dialogues in places where our right to speak has not so much been forcibly silenced, as outsourced and deregulated so far beyond our comprehension that we cannot seem to coherently resist it, yet. Prof. Gurminder K. Bhambra from Warwick’s Sociology Dept., who spoke at the Occupation and member of t by notpicnic Apr 22
