Science v. Faith
This part of our website will be concentrating on trying to define or catagorize intelligence. As you can imagine, this is potentially a very difficult process since the world is not constituted of one aspect of life. That is to say that if everyone in the world worked for one thing, let’s just say being the world’s best weight lifter, there would only be one type of person in the world.

If I were forced to choose an aspect of the internet that made it simply indispensable, it would definitely be its availability as a huge learning resource. 20 years ago, who would have thought that one would have easy access to already completed business documents, research papers of world class universities, free encyclopedias and some great books, no matter where he or she is located in the world.The internet also boasts of accommodating tutorials to absolutely anything. Here are 15 such super-useful sites which aim to provide you with all the tutorials you'd ever need. How Stuff WorksHow Stuff Works is probably the best known How-to tutorials site.

This week's element is tungsten, which has the chemical symbol W and the atomic number 74. The name is derived from Swedish and translates as "heavy stone", in recognition of one of this metal's more obvious qualities. Pure tungsten is silver-coloured, very hard, and has an extremely high melting point (3422 °C / 6192 °F) -- the highest for any metal and second only to carbon (3550°C / 6422°F). Tungsten is quite rare on Earth and occurs in the wild only in a number of minerals. By now, I suppose that you are wondering where the chemical symbol, W, came from. Although this element is known as tungsten in many English and French speaking countries, a number of European countries know it as wolfram, a word derived from German, which translates roughly as "wolf's froth" or "cream" -- a reference to the large amounts of tin consumed by tungsten extraction.

Steve Jobs talks about managing people
This is about the synchronicity number 23, and thus about the phenomena of synchronicity in general. To write about this topic objectively is impossible, as all experiences are necessarily subjective, involving as they do the element of consciousness, which cannot be instrumented. This is perhaps a study in the affirmation that any assertion of an objective observer is inherently impossible, and yet at the same time there is a deeply imbedded pattern of coherency in all that we regard as random. Randomness itself is nothing more than a pattern of deeply imbedded complexity of order; an order so complex it is not immediately discernible or obvious.
