You may always wonder how this little skinny black men in the skiffs out in the ocean get their massive ransom, and how they retrieve it safely so often. Well, let’s take a closer look and break down each of the major segments of the ransom retrieval phase. http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/bizzareweird/43068-xxYou may always wonder how this little skinny black men in the skiffs out in the ocean... more
There are the typical dubby vocal samples spread through the album, but essentially the album is instrumental. Although staying true to dub throughout, Dubsalon plays with dubstep, downbeat, electronica and jazzy influences. Yes, there’s harmonica, yes there are bleeps and echos, but this is true “magpie music”, and every track brings in a new influence. http://www.freeturbine.com/index.php/free-albums/D/22-dubsalon/26-durban-chamber-There are the typical dubby vocal samples spread through the album, but essentially... more

(NaturalNews) Experts from different persuasions often argue about the alleged benefits of using marijuana for pain relief, but a new study out of McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and McGill University (MU) has conclusively found that cannabis, the genus name for marijuana, is better than pharmaceutical drugs at relieving chronic neurological pain, and without all the harmful side effects.

I imagine that the future will be marked by an overemphasis on user-generated content. People won't need dictionaries, instead they'll just write blog posts with a subject line like this.
Hopefully informed people will respond with the correct definitions.
"Petulant is the capital of a country in Asia."
"Petulant has something to do with dogs and cats."
"Petulant is the name of a rapper."
We'll never know the true definition, but it'll be fun because we get to live in the postmodern uncertainty that earlier generations prescribed for us.

Research at the University of Toronto has provided the very first solid evidence of how our human emotions affect our eyesight.
Professor of Psychology, Adam Anderson, worked with his team on the study to bring to the forefront results that would either support or reject the belief that emotions control visual functions.
"Good and bad moods literally change the way our visual cortex operates and how we see,” explains Anderson. “Specifically our study shows that when in a positive mood, our visual cortex takes in more information, while negative moods result in tunnel vision."
To collect these findings, Anderson and his team showed volunteers a composite image of a face in the centre, surrounded by “place” images, such as a house. Volunteers were then asked to focus their attention on the central image by trying to identify the gender of the person’s face.
When in a bad mood, the subjects did not process the images of places in the surrounding background. This was the opposite to what the researchers discovered when volunteers were in a good mood -- more information was taken in.Research at the University of Toronto has provided the very first solid evidence of... more
Nokia in Finland have applied to transmit a colour with a text message. So imagine, on those days where writing something just won't cut it, you will be able to send a colour which will illuminate the recipients LED accordingly.
So if you are feeling angry, you could send red, if you mellow, you could send yellow, and if you feel sad, you could send blue.Nokia in Finland have applied to transmit a colour with a text message. So imagine, on... more
Never mind depressed real estate values—the old mantra "location, location, location" may be just as important to your mental health, a new U.S. government report suggests.
This county-by-county map shows the percentages of residents who reported "frequent mental distress" (FMD)—defined as 14 or more days of emotional discomfort, including "stress, depression and problems with emotion," during the previous month. Three days of mental distress is considered average, the researchers say.
Over the course of two random telephone surveys—one administered between 1993 and 2001, the other between 2003 and 2006—a team from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asked a total of 2.4 million adults about their mental health.Never mind depressed real estate values—the old mantra "location, location,... more
"We're a long way from building a Penfield mood organ, but we already have ways of prodding our brains. Sometimes we achieve miracle cures, sometimes just trim the edge off the pain, but even the little tweaks can mean the difference between the livable and unlivable life.
The target area of the brain is treated like the coil in a generator, subjected to rapidly changing magnetic fields until electricity begins to dance across its neurons. Unlike the optical switch developed by Boyden and Stanford's Dr. Karl Deisseroth, TMS doesn't reach the deeper regions of the brain, but there are a lot of important and interesting areas in the cortex where TMS delivers its current. It's also far less precise than the optical switch, although TMS seems positively surgical when compared to the imprecision of the pharmaceuticals we pump into our bodies.
"The magnetic field has an effective area of stimulation that is — at the smallest — the size of a thumb," says Dr. Bret Schneider, a neurological researcher at Stanford Medical School. TMS produces an impressionistic sweep of neural activation in the brain that researchers have used to do everything from inducing savant-like skills to causing people to take greater risks. Clinicians use it to treat migraines and depression, among other things.""We're a long way from building a Penfield mood organ, but we already have... more

"For better or for worse, when you get married, you sign on for a life of sharing --bedsheets, bathroom space, cold germs. Moods, too, as it turns out. And it's becoming increasingly clear that "emotional contagion," the unconscious tendency to mimic the emotions of others, affects spousal health.
Couples may not realize that "for better or worse" may mean they will share their emotional states as well.
Heart bypass patients with neurotic and anxious spouses, for instance, were much more likely to be depressed 18 months after surgery -- independent of their own personality -- according to one study led by John M. Ruiz, Ph.D., assistant professor of clinical psychology at Washington State University.
The findings are troubling because depression is known to put recovering cardiac patients at higher risk of further heart attacks and death.
Another study showed that hardening of the coronary arteries was more likely in wives when they -- or their husbands -- expressed hostility during fights.
As for how one catches a partner's foul humor, the brain's aptly named "mirror neurons" are to blame, says John T. Cacioppo, Ph.D., director of the Center for Cognitive and Social Neuroscience at the University of Chicago and co-author of "Emotional Contagion."
These neurons fire in response to other people's actions and intentions, especially when you care about the individual. So if you see that your husband is anxious or depressed, you literally feel his pain."

The world's largest stock imagery company, Getty Images, released a new mashup that leans on the company's vast stock image and audio assets. The flash app called Moodstream draws on Getty's photo, video, and audio collections to create what the company calls a "powerful brainstorming tool designed to take you in inspiring, unexpected directions." The mashup debuted at the Webby Award Film and Video Awards after party in New York.
Moodstream adjusts its output based on settings users input via sliders that describe their state of mind. Happy to Sad, Humorous to Serious, etc. Users can also control the type of transitions between image assets, the amount of color vs. black and white imagery, and the type of music. The app comes with 6 preset moods as well. Once you've entered your mood settings, the application delivers a steady stream of video clips and still images set to short snippets of music.
If you see a picture or hear some music you like, you can add it to your "moodboard" and get additional information on purchasing it from Getty's library. That's a smart move that ties some brand and product marketing into an otherwise fun mashup.
