5 Languages That Could Change the Way You See the World I went to my neighbor’s house for something to eat yesterday. Think about this sentence. It’s pretty simple—English speakers would know precisely what it means. But what does it actually tell you—or, more to the point, what does it not tell you? It doesn’t specify facts like the subject’s gender or the neighbor’s, or what direction the speaker traveled, or the nature of the neighbors’ relationship, or whether the food was just a cookie or a complex curry.

What a Non-Partisan Plan for U.S. Entrepeneurship Would Look Like - Derek Thompson The Republican National Convention praised small businesses and the Democratic response will praise the administration's role in helping job creators. But what would a non-partisan plan for entrepreneurs look like? The theme of the first day of the Republican National Convention was "We Built It," a rallying-cry from entrepreneurs who insisted that they didn't need government to start their businesses. This week, we can expect the Democratic response to highlight the ways Obama's administration has empowered job creators. But what would an entrepreneur-first platform, stripped of party politics, really look like? Last week, I asked readers for answers.

Remembrance of things future: Long-term memory sets the stage for visual perception (Medical Xpress) -- Rather than being a passive state, perception is an active process fueled by predictions and expectations about our environment. In the latter case, memory must be a fundamental component in the way our brain generates these precursors to the perceptual experience – but how the brain integrates long-term memory with perception has not been determined. Recently, however, researchers in the Department of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford, by devising a method for integrating memory and attention, showed how LTM optimizes perception by varying brain states associated with anticipation of spatial localization in the visual field. The scientists also used fMRI to articulate a neural network involving a number of cortical areas likely to be active in the predictive use of memory in the visual cortex.

Gangnam Style parodies and copycats Getting tired yet? After hearing the same song and watching the same videos day in and day out, after a while your eyes might wanna pop out, and your ears may fall off, but this song here seems to never get dry, the dance never fades for some odd reason, and the best thing is it all just got started. I think even the Pope himself, and the Dali Lama danced to this awesome song that PSY created. Man oh man I need to make a parody myself so I can join in on the potential viral action, but I think it shall be a fail for sure, because I don't have a lick of comedic expression in me to save my life. If I did, well I would be doing what our cool new friend PSY has done creating the most insane worldwide musical phenomenon ever known to man. Its safe to say that he's a genius, and I'm just a little ole rocket scientist type trying to earn a slow buck typing up a storm all day and night, because all other systems have failed me LMFAO.

The election may well come down to a few key issues. So what matters most to Americans? The TED Blog read this Gallup poll from late July on issues that citizens want the next president to prioritize. Become Superhuman: Maximize Your Potential and Fulfill Your Destiny As we advance in the spiritual life and in the practice of systematic self-examination we are often surprised by the discovery of vast unknown tracts of the inner life of the soul. They seem like great plains stretching out in mystery and wrapt in mists that sometimes for a moment lift, or sweep off and leave one looking for one brief instant upon great reaches of one’s own life, unknown, unmeasured, unexplored. Men stand at such moments breathless in wonder and in awe gazing upon these great tracts upon which they have never looked before, with kindling eyes and beating hearts; and while they look the mists steal back till all is lost to sight once more and they are left wondering if what they saw was reality, or the creation of their fancy. Have you ever experienced such a moment?
