Just not the ones that normally come to mind, when that phrase is used.
When you have a bit of bark that need peelings, or a piece of leather, that needs a good scrape, to clean it up and soften it. Don't break a nail, use a thumbnail scraper...
The spot had an awesome view.
These are the initial flakes that are made to shape the stone into a usable core.
Once the core is shaped then blades can be struck from it. One typically only finds the broken ones since these are the first ones made in
Imagine a couple, arguing for the umpteenth time about who did what, or who forgot to do something. Maybe you were in an argument like this yourself recently. Don't think of that one. Also, don't think of the ones that have valid, life-changing reasons fueling them. Scour your memory for a third-party perspective to a really dumb argument. If you can, trace the argument back to its base premise.
What you'll often find is that both parties claim knowledge of a random detail in a memory. This random detail was a marker that triggered other details in the memory. Somehow, in conversation, the specifics of this memory marker were elucidated by one party, and the other party objected. The marker did not match their version of the story. An argument ensues.
What's the argument really about? Certainly not the detail. No, it's about the absolute trust people put into
One year. One year, I’ve worked in the facility that breeds and raises lab mice for my university’s research and education needs.
For one year, I’ve cleaned cages, refilled water bottles, helped sick mice regain their health, made sure pregnant mice had the best conditions and newborn mice didn’t suffer from some painful genetic condition.
And now, I must leave them all behind because my education requires me to focus more attention on my studies. There is no way that I can do both, work with the lab mice and finish my degree.
What have I seen in that one year?
I’ve seen pregnant mice give birth to beautiful babies that look like tiny piglets when they’re only a day old. With their eyes closed and their ears tightly attached to their head, they already wiggle around and squeak in protest when you move them from their dirty cage into a fresh one.
The first few of those babies are now a year old and most of t
Well Hello, Everyone! Welcome to @Daily-Science, I'll take you to @Daily-Science train to know a little bit about @Daily-Science, lets go!
The first of all we have to know what the Science is, we may have misunderstood the word of "Science" itself
Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. -Wikipedia
And science divided into three kinds :
@Daily-Science will post all kind of science, although no
We've all surely heard that saying before:
There's a fine line between genius and insanity.
I'm not sure who it was that added on,
I am that line. But what if this were true for us all?
Some scientists have gone so far as to try find the genetic link between the two - isolating some predictable chemical component to help explain this dynamic. But what if there were other dimensions to this crazy-genius phenomenon that no one has talked or thought about yet, wherein might lie tremendous opportunity for unlocking entirely new potentials of human senses, abilities, and capabilities...?
Now first of all, there is an important distinction here to be made, summed up in another recent post:
In ancient times purple, dark blue and violet were colors directly related to royalty, luxury and wealth. This is because of the difficulty of acquiring the pigments. Let me tell you the story about legendary colors and a chemical process that dies over a thousand years ago... A story that involves: Carnivore snails!!! (c'mon, admit it, carnivore snails is something everyone wants to hear about!)
Until synthetic dyes made their appearance about 100 years ago, natural ones that came from plants, animals or minerals were the only option for coloring things.
Given their beauty or, actually, rarity because how hard they were to acquire the tones purple, violet and blue were destined for monarchs, Caesars, emperors generals and high priests. Several ancient texts make reference to the <a href="http://penel

For the past few decades, our lives have changed in drastic ways. I think no other era has proven to be such a big departure from the one preceding it, than the one we live in today.
The advent of personal computers and the internet has been one of the major reasons for that as they snowballed the digitalisation of human life. The constant increase in computing power, internet speed, battery tech and data storage technology, have all acted as catalysts for the same.
Each of those individual technologies has seen some major breakthroughs over the years. For the purposes of this article, I am going to talk about data storage in particular.
Data storage technology allows us to virtually store our lives and the various aspects of it in the digital realm and serves as the backbone of this information age that we live in.

I present here a gift to my fellow millennials, a look into the structure of the mind control of our generation. There is a reason why people dog millennials so much. We are collectively insane. We dont have self-esteem, we have group-esteem, and thus, the need to be LIKE, the need to be aLIKE, and the need to be a LIKE.
Huxley tried to warn us. Bradburry tried to warn us. And I can keep going, but many brilliant authors warned us of the coming sameness invasion.

social character suited to twentieth century Capitalism? It needs men who co-operate smoothly in large groups; who want to consume more and more, and whose tasks are standardized and can easily be influenced and anticipated. It needs men who feel free and independent, not subject to any authority, or p
Warning! Potential spoilers for the book
The Perfume, a book about a man in 18th-century France who starts killing women to create the perfect perfume from their scents had always fascinated Felix. He had read the book in school and it was the first book on his reading list he had actually enjoyed.
Just the thought of taking someone’s scent, applying it to himself and thus influencing other people in a way he desired seemed exciting. The fascination for it followed him through his teenage years and determined his degree of choice as he went into the field of biochemistry.
Felix soon discovered that the topic of human pheromones was a heavily discussed one. Humans lacked specific organ to sense pheromones and their olfactory sense wasn’t really strong enough. Some studies still tried to find a connection between androstadienone, estratetraenol and the way males and females interact wi
When i was a kid, then a doctor was like a guy with super powers, when there was something wrong...
The doctor will knows what to do.....but in the following years i started to get to know doctors better and the health care around them. And slowly the image of a guy with super powers ,changed into something like this.
Yep this might look funny, but our doctor is just like that.
The bell ringed in my head one day, when i sit together with my doctor searching the internet about a solution!! While we were searching for something, i suddenly got a thought in my mind, what said.... What a minute... WTF im doing?
_I could do this at home for free! WTH is this guy doing was on my mind, and then i suddenly realize that he don't know what he was doing. I felt like the blind man following another blind man! so
Picking up from PART ONE...
What does the genius access that most people do not...?
newest of discoveries awaiting in the realms of genius do not lie within the domain of established culture. That which the genius has the capabilities of bringing into the culture to upgrade it first exist outside of it - and to dare venture beyond the boundaries of the culture's comfort zones is a bold move.
Without the safety of a culture's foundational contexts for translating and making sense of its realities, venturing into unchartered territory can be highly confusing, overwhelming, and challenging to make sense of. Before all the new information gathered from outside the boundaries is processed and organized efficiently into existing the organizational structures of existing neural networks, it might all
The alchemist raises his hand, waving it in the air in a magic attempt to stop time. His eyes wander around the ceiling of his lab in a ritual only he understands. I between his thick beard and mustache, his lips display a glimpse of something that looks like amazement. Eureka!. He has a knee on the ground adopting the classic poets' posture in a moment of revelation. The clock says it is 11 PM. The room is plunged in shadows. A few inches from his face, something glows with a ghostly appearance. In that bottle, just distilled, a major discovery brews: And unknown and refulgent substance. Still with his hand up and looking at the ceiling, the alchemist decides to baptize it: phos (light) & phoros (to bring).
The alchemist Hennig Brand found phosphorus.
IT probably didn't happen like that, but some classic painting depi
The idea of 'Quantum' Technologies is incredibly prevalent in our society today and most technologies just use the word 'Quantum' to add flare and not because they actually use anything relevant in the world of Quantum physics. So what is the 'weirdness' of Quantum physics, and why and how do the laws of classical physics break down at the atomic level?
In Classical mechanics, to classify the path of an object we typically use Newton's force laws or Lagrangian mechanics (with Euler-Lagrange equation), it is a quantifiable solution with exact results (what I mean

Predatory Piranha fish
Piranha fish have never been a favorite fish because of its reputation, but actually freshwater piranha fish are considered ferocious river monsters. The truth is that piranha has sharp teeth and many of them are carnivorous fish, but there is an apparent difference of diet among species , This is why it is difficult to classify these fish, and here we will recall some facts about Piranha fish.
Piranha fish are the most ferocious fish in the world, and they are found in very large numbers. Sharks and paracodas usually attack smaller organisms themselves, but predatory piranhas usually attack much larger organisms themselves. The piranha fish will catch a moving hand in the water Parmesan deforms swimmers in all the rivers of Paraguayan cities, devouring any wounded man or monster alive, blood in the water evoking them to the point of madness, and the p
You remember the Ebola scare of 2014 right? If not, this was a year when instead of our media (in the US) flipping out about sharks, or drought, or immigrants, or what ever... they were flipping out about ebola. The hysteria of the time was due to an outbreak of the disease in Africa and infections which were occurring in physicians who volunteered their time (and risked their lives) to help treat people there. The fact that people were returning home and a few being diagnosed with the disease sparked a media frenzy and their was non-stop discussion surrounding Ebola at this time (and not with out reason, Ebola is a frightening disease, a hemorrhagic fever, resulting in bleeding out of every orifice).

Drones frequently prevent fire fighters from flying helicopters equipped with special equipment to extinguish and stop the spread of massive forest fires in Central California caused by the constant dry weather and intense heat.“
Last June, it took just two days for the Erskine Fire to spread throughout California. Several lives were claimed by the blaze that engulfed 45,000 Acres of land and over 200 homes, with 1,500 others. Which caused the call for evacuation of hundreds of residents in Central and Southern California. The fire took thousands of fire fighters throughout Central and South California to battle.

Ever since I first heard that film title, The Getting of Wisdom, I was entranced with the idea that getting older is actually about the getting of wisdom. Not getting wise, since that implies to me - not sure why - a rather linear, progressive action. Instead, my humble interpretation of the getting of wisdom involves acquiring it in chunks, connecting the dots between clumps of knowledge. And perhaps this is a reflection of the way life tends to work for most of us - bumpily and in a meandering way, stopping and starting as an unleashed dog wandering around its neighbourhood would.
The experience of preparing my post on Monday, which was supposed to be a quick humorous jab at our Republic's sadl
