The London Tourism Guide - a free tourist and visitor guidebook for England's capital city "When a man is tired of London he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford" - Samuel Johnson, 1777 Although London has all you could ever need, it's still great to get out of the city - daytrips by train are inexpensive if started after 10am and if you have a Network Southeast Card. Ask for a "cheap day return" and show your card at the ticket office. Over 60s also get reduced travel throughout Britain (not just the Southeast region) with a Senior railcard which may be a better buy for this age group. Bus services are also cheap and reliable - but are at the mercy of traffic. Top easy daytrips outside of London: 1) Hampton Court - magnificent palace built by a succession of kings from Henry VIII onwards. 2) The Daytrip - We've worked out what we think is the ultimate roadtrip. 3) Cambridge. 4) Brighton - Georgian seaside town, famous for its meandering 'Lanes' - a royal playground.

How to Sleep, relaxing music, relaxation tools Science Says: Excessive Crying Could Be Harmful | Dr. Sears Official Website | Parenting Advice, Parenting Books & more Science tells us that when babies cry alone and unattended, they experience panic and anxiety. Their bodies and brains are flooded with adrenaline and cortisol stress hormones. Science has also found that when developing brain tissue is exposed to these hormones for prolonged periods these nerves won’t form connections to other nerves and will degenerate. Is it therefore possible that infants who endure many nights or weeks of crying-it-out alone are actually suffering harmful neurological effects that may have permanent implications on the development of sections of their brain? Here is how science answers this alarming question: Chemical and hormonal imbalances in the brain Research has shown that infants who are routinely separated from parents in a stressful way have abnormally high levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as lower growth hormone levels.

CHADBOURNERIES Blog Archive » How to Power Nap How much do you sleep? Is that enough to keep you energized all through the day?

Remotely Control Somebody's Desktop the Easy Way :: the How-To Geek We’ve all gotten the call from some family member asking why their computer isn’t working properly. After an hour of troubleshooting over the phone with them or trying to get remote assistance to work we’ve decided we’re skipping the next family reunion to avoid being asked to help… there has to be a better way… There is, and it’s called Crossloop – a completely free screen sharing software that’s extremely simple to use and very secure… since it’s not enabled all the time. I’d advise installing this on their computer even before they have problems so you’ll be prepared. Yes, It’s Really This Simple Tell the person that you are trying to help to open the application and select the Host tab. Type in the access code on your copy’s Join tab, and then click Connect. They’ll get a dialog telling them that you want to control their computer, tell them to hit Yes. The first time they run the app, they’ll need to click the Unblock button (unless you’ve already installed and configured it for them)

Theodor Theodor W. Adorno {1903-1969} Philosophe,estheticien et musicologue allemand Les lamentations au sujet du déclin du goût musical ne sont guère plus récentes que l'expérience discordante réalisée par l'humanité depuis le début de son histoire, à savoir que la musique est, à la fois, une manifestation immédiate de l'instinct et l'instance qui adoucit cet instinct. Elle incite les ménades à la danse, elle sort de la flûte de Pan pour ensorceler, mais elle résonne aussi de la lyre orphique, autour de laquelle se rassemblent, apaisées, les figures de la passion. Chaque fois que cette paix semble menacée par des pulsions dionysiaques, il est question de déclin du goût. Dans les lamentations traditionnelles au sujet du déclin du goût, de nombreux thèmes reviennent avec insistance. La phase récente de conscience musicale des masses se définit par l'hostilité à la jouissance dans la jouissance.

10 Reasons You Should Never Have a Religion While consciously pursuing your spiritual development is commendable, joining an established religion such as Christianity, Islam, or Hinduism is one of the worst ways to go about it. In this article I’ll share 10 reasons why you must eventually abandon the baggage of organized religion if you wish to pursue conscious living in earnest. Since Christianity is currently the world’s most popular religion, I’ll slant this article towards Christianity’s ubiquitous failings. However, you’ll find that most of these points apply equally well to other major religions (yes, even Buddhism). 1. Spirituality for dummies. If you have the awareness level of a snail, and your thinking is mired in shame and guilt (with perhaps a twist of drug abuse or suicidal thinking), then subscribing to a religion can help you climb to a higher level of awareness. For reasonably intelligent people who aren’t suffering from major issues with low self-esteem, religion is ridiculously consciousness-lowering. 2. 3. 4. 5.
