Live World Data. Awakening from Duality- May the light grow within you. To Change the Paradigm - Start Here! The Optimism Bias by Tali Sharot: extract | Science | The Observer. We like to think of ourselves as rational creatures. We watch our backs, weigh the odds, pack an umbrella. But both neuroscience and social science suggest that we are more optimistic than realistic. On average, we expect things to turn out better than they wind up being. People hugely underestimate their chances of getting divorced, losing their job or being diagnosed with cancer; expect their children to be extraordinarily gifted; envision themselves achieving more than their peers; and overestimate their likely life span (sometimes by 20 years or more). The belief that the future will be much better than the past and present is known as the optimism bias.

You might expect optimism to erode under the tide of news about violent conflicts, high unemployment, tornadoes and floods and all the threats and failures that shape human life. To make progress, we need to be able to imagine alternative realities – better ones – and we need to believe that we can achieve them. Hardwired for hope? Gehirnforschung: 80% der Menschen können besorgniserregende Meldungen überhaupt nicht verarbeiten » Blog. Gehirnforscher nennen es „unrealistischen Optimismus“, was im Endeffekt nichts weiter bedeutet, als dass bei der Mehrheit der Bevölkerung essentielle Teile des Gehirns einfach herunterfahren, wenn sie mit der Wahrheit konfrontiert werden.

Die Leiterin einer jüngst durchgeführten Studie, mit der dieser Sachverhalt nun durch Messungen der Gehirnaktivität belegt werden konnte, macht dieses zuvor umstrittene Phänomen sogar für den Ausbruch der Finanzkrise im Jahre 2008 verantwortlich Bildquelle: © Bernd Syben, Essen Wenn Sie Ihre Mitmenschen wieder einmal auf reale und besorgniserregende Sachverhalte aufmerksam machen wollen, während diese sich nicht darum zu scheren scheinen, das von Ihnen Gesagte als Schwarzmalerei beiseite wischen und sich stattdessen „unterhaltsameren“ Dingen zuwenden – Seien Sie beruhigt, das hat nichts mit Ihnen zu tun!

Forscher in London haben diese Tatsache – die bis vor Kurzem noch heftig umstritten war und mit Verweis auf statistische Fehler beiseite gewischt (!) EZB bestätigt: Die Bank-Guthaben in Europa sind nicht sicher. Der niederländische EZB-Mann Klaas Knot bestätigt: Die Enteignung von privaten Bank-Guthaben wird künftig Teil der „europäischen Liquidierungs-Politik sein“. Die EZB will, dass die Banken ihre Bilanzen in Ordnung bringen. Der einfache Sparer sollte sich nun gut überlegen, wie viel Geld er auf welcher Bank belassen will. Klaas Knot, der Präsident der Niederländischen Zentralbank, versichert den Sparern in Europa, dass ihre Einlagen bei einem Banken-Crash sicher zur Rettung herangezogen werden.

Das niederländische EZB-Mitglied und Notenbank-Präsident seines Landes, Klaas Knot, bestätigte in einem Vortrag am Donnerstag, was der niederländische Euro-Gruppenführer Jereon Dijsselbloem vergangene Woche verkündet hatte: Die Restrukturierung der europäischen Banken wird nach dem Vorbild Zyperns erfolgen. Alle Bank-Guthaben werden, falls notwendig, enteignet. Antrag-Bedingungsloses-Grundeinkommen-geaenderte-Fassung-5-vom-04.03.2010. The President Who Told The Truth. This video contains one of the most awesome, inspiring and truthful speeches ever given by a president. This very speech must have caused a lot of panic among the higher echelons of the elite.

Kennedy had been in office for only 3 months and he was already taking unprecedented steps to empower ordinary people. Kennedy did more for civil rights than any other president since Abraham Lincoln. Kennedy was a big supporter of the constitution, he was against the tyranny of big government. He wanted to withdraw US troops from Vietnam. He wanted to abolish the CIA and Federal Reserve, and he warned us of criminal elements within the establishment who wanted to cease an opportunity to restrict peoples freedoms. He urged the press to be more open and to fulfill its obligation to inform the American people about pertinent facts.

For this video I have included the main parts of JFK’s speech, where he warns us about the dangers of secret societies. Full Transcript President John F.

ZeitNews | A Zeitgeist Movement Technology Team Application. Invention of the day: A bladeless wind turbine. It may look like a giant airplane window strung with Venetian blinds, but this structure, designed by Dutch architecture firm Mecanoo and installed at the Delft University of Technology in March, is a model of a machine that would convert wind to energy without any moving parts. Any mechanical moving parts, at least: The technology, developed by the Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science faculty at Delft, uses the movement of electrically charged water droplets to generate power.

How does this work? A handy video explains: The prototype of the EWICON (Electrostatic Wind Energy Converter), as envisioned by Mecanoo, has the potential to change the use of wind technology. The EWICON absorbs little wear and tear, requires hardly any maintenance, but most importantly, it makes no noise and casts no moving shadows, two of the principal complaints that hinder wind turbine installation in the United States.

A pair of Indiana University researchers has found that a pair of predictive modeling techniques can make significantly better decisions about patients’ treatments than can doctors acting alone. How much better? They claim a better than 50 percent reduction in costs and more than 40 percent better patient outcomes. The idea behind the research, carried out by Casey Bennett and Kris Hauser, is simple and gets to the core of why so many people care so much about data in the first place: If doctors can consider what’s actually happening and likely to happen instead of relying on intuition, they should be able to make better decisions.

In order to prove out their hypothesis, the researchers worked with “clinical data, demographics and other information on over 6,700 patients who had major clinical depression diagnoses, of which about 65 to 70 percent had co-occurring chronic physical disorders like diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.”

The History & Structure of the Universe (Infographic) | Big Bang & History of the Universe | Universe Evolution & Astronomy | Our journey toward understanding the nature of our universe began thousands of years ago and had its roots in religion and philosophy. Around 2,300 years ago, careful observers in the Mediterranean deduced that the Earth must be round and must orbit the sun.

With no way for these early theories to be proved correct, however, they could not stand against the more flattering notion that the Earth was at the center of everything and that the cosmos existed to support human life and destiny. When Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei invented the astronomical telescope some 1,900 years later, it was finally possible to make precise observations about the planets and stars.

A science of the structure and history of the entire universe, called "cosmology," emerged.

Wisdom of the Child. I remember very clearly, when I was a little child, who could not speak much or express herself well enough, I felt I knew so much. The whole understanding of life was in front of me, I was fearless, I had no doubts and I lived my knowing.

I enjoyed my life. Then within time passing and me growing I have become more and more frustrated as I started to recognise that within time I began forgetting the truths I knew and things started looking much complicated. I felt I was losing myself in the world of people. The truth is that when I was little I understood and knew and felt a lot, I just did not have ability and/or enough words and ways to express that knowledge, so as a child I simply lived what I knew and felt. My desire and aim is to go back to that beautiful innocence of the child I once was, and I am walking on my path…quite well. The grand truth is children are extremely wise and they can be the best teachers of all if we only allow this.
