Story Text: The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter - Baker Street Wiki - The Sherlock Holmes encyclopaedia During my long and intimate acquaintance with Mr Sherlock Holmes I had never heard him refer to his relations, and hardly ever to his own early life. This reticence upon his part had increased the somewhat inhuman effect which he produced upon me, until sometimes I found myself regarding him as an isolated phenomenon, a brain without a heart, as deficient in human sympathy as he was pre-eminent in intelligence. His aversion to women and his disinclination to form new friendships were both typical of his unemotional character, but not more so than his complete suppression of every reference to his own people. I had come to believe that he was an orphan with no relatives living, but one day, to my very great surprise, he began to talk to me about his brother. "In your own case," said I, "from all that you have told me, it seems obvious that your faculty of observation and your peculiar facility for deduction are due to your own systematic training."

From the discovery of an ancient tomb in Greece to the first evidence of Neanderthal art, here are 10 of Live Science's favorite archaeology stories of 2014. 1. An Alexander the Great-era tomb at Amphipolis Rarely do archaeological digs attract so much attention in real time.

iNFORMATiON FARM: Inside The LC: The Strange but Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation Part 1 “There’s something happening here What it is ain’t exactly clear” Join me now, if you have the time, as we take a stroll down memory lane to a time nearly four-and-a-half decades ago - a time when America last had uniformed ground troops fighting a sustained and bloody battle to impose, uhmm, 'democracy' on a sovereign nation. It is the first week of August, 1964, and U.S. warships under the command of U.S. Navy Admiral George Stephen Morrison have allegedly come under attack while patrolling Vietnam's Tonkin Gulf. 5 most incredible discoveries of the week A preschool paleontologist and a Shakespearean announcement make the list: 4-Year-Old's Big Find in Texas: a Dino: For 4-year-old Wylie Brys, a chance dig in the dirt behind a Texas shopping center led to a giant discovery: the fossil of what could be a 100-million-year-old dinosaur. Scientists from SMU helped extract the fossil this week, seven months after Wylie's find, and they think it could be that of a rare land-dwelling nodosaur. Wylie's dad reveals how the pint-sized paleontologist made his find. The Brontosaurus Is Back, Study Says: New research suggests the Brontosaurus really did exist, some 112 years after scientists declared the opposite was true. After an "exhaustive" study, British and Portuguese paleontologists say the Brontosaurus merits its own genus after all—and they use those iconic necks to back their claim.

Discover Amazing New Websites & Services - Wibki: Unlock the Web! Discover Amazing New Websites & Services – Wibki: Unlock the Web! I love discovering new websites. We are fortunate to live in a revolutionary era; an era that allows us access to infinite knowledge and offers services that were denied from us only a few years back… The Internet provides us with endless possibilities, no matter what our interests, craves or needs are. The problem is that 90% of it consists of cute cats, porn, ‘how to get rich’ frauds, and other stumble baits… I love the instance acknowledgment when I encounter a landing page that is worthy of my time. When I finally manage to discover a site that really blows my mind or a service that I can actually see myself use, it feels extremely rewarding.

The Power of Curiosity Todd Kashdan · Discover how cultivating an inquiring mind can help you lead a happier, healthier life. What do you want most in life? For the vast majority of us, the answer is “to be happy.” In a 2007 survey of more than 10,000 people from 48 countries published in Perspectives on Psychological Sciences, happiness was viewed as more important than success, intelligence, knowledge, maturity, wisdom, relationships, wealth and meaning in life. 12 Exhilarating Things You Should Do to Live Life to the Fullest I want to be Inspired everyday! Last year I forgot to be more grateful for each moment. I had a bit of a hard time keeping up with responsibilities and holding myself accountable for what I had to accomplish. So instead of forgiving and picking myself up, I ended up doing a lot more damage then I ever intended. However, staying in a rut won’t benefit anyone, especially not me.
