The striking thing was that they didn't just apply to people's mental experiences but were equally important to blatantly
physical experiences such as a traumatic injury or an acute abdomen.
The importance of such psychological considerations doesn't just apply to medicine though.
I have been an Apple user for over ten years now and during the Steve Jobs years I was always impressed by how expertly they used psychology and it's application in their marketing.
The invention of the computer has, one can argue, completely changed the direction of human civilisation. They have become such integral part of our existence that it is difficult to imagine what the world would look like today had there been no computers at all.
With the advent of the internet, computers became even more supercharged and it revolutionised the already revolutionary technology and as a result of that, today’s world that we live in was made possible where a single tap on a screen can summon a cab to your location!
However, this took a lot of work and evolutions along the way. When computers were first launched they were very bulky and filled entire rooms. With time they get smaller and more powerful until they could fit in our pockets and now on our wrists. On the ‘interface’ front too, there have been many necessary evolutions going from command line to a graphical user interfa
Selfie sticks are loved and hated. With the newest innovation in drone technology and products, these sticks may become an object of the past. Different products are hitting the market, with each having their own advantage.
AirSelfie is a small pocket size drone with the prime function to make selfies. The creators claim operations is very easy, just click the lift button on the app controller, move the drone to the wanted location and let autonomous hoovering take over. Now it is ready to take Selfies. After your selfies are taken, easily land the drone in the palm of your hands, or just grab it from the air.
The rapid advance of technology has made life easier for us overall, but it had also helped in the conservation of species which were considered endangered.
But in a crazy twist, it seems that the same technology is hounding conservationists as it has bred a new type of poaching which exploits this very same technology to allow the malicious player an advantage.
A conservation biologist from the Carleton University in Ottawa, Steven Cooke, warns that
cyber-poachers could use tracking tags to hunt endangered animals. According to him, the very tools used by scientists to study and protect animals and fish are being hijacked to do just the opposite, kill them mercilessly!
It is a known fact that the tagging of animals in the wild has enabled biologists to monitor species which are considered vulnerable,
Innovations around the world inspire us to think differently for environmental benefit. One such example at Baltimore’s floating trash-eaters that have intercepted 1 million tons of debris.
(Source: National Geographic)
The snail-like shaped solar- and hydro-powered trash interceptors have the ability to suck up plastic bags, Styrofoam containers, cigarette butts, and other debris.
The trash, which gets pulled in by floating containment booms, gets tangled and lifted by rotating forks before going up the conveyor belt and being deposited into the dumpster.
It uses solar panels and the river’s current to turn a waterwheel, which then activates a conveyor belt.
Hope to see more of these effective and playful floating trash devices in lakes and waterways.
The trash wheel’s creator, John Kellett, worked on the harbor for years and saw garbage floating on the water every day.
We all love ice cream specially during hot summer afternoons. One of the biggest problem with ice creams is when you try to have it slowly, it just melts too quickly during summer. This is going to be changed soon an scientists have discovered a new protein “BsIA” that creates a great resistance in ice creams towards melting.
A team of scientists from the University of Edinburg and University of Dundee done some research on it and found a naturally occurring protein that can greatly enhance the ice cream resistant towards melting. Now by the use of this new protein the ice cream will be able to withstand warm temperature and you will be able to enjoy every lick and piece of it.
When BsIA is a
Hi Steemit - We bring you a progress update on our newest development, MTP (Merkle Tree Proof).
MTP is an amazing new mining algorithm that is high performance, high security and promotes egalitarian computing. Zcoin intends to be the first to implement this and we foresee that MTP will offer good future proofing.
Zcoin is working to be the first cryptocurrency to implement MTP as a proof of work algorithm and work is ongoing. As the foundation of a coin’s security, fundamental implications as to distribution and also verification speed, the implementation of MTP is the next priority on our roadmap.
The MTP algorithm was devised by Alex Biryukov and Dmitry Khovratovich from the University of Luxembourg in their paper published on the 11 June 2016 titled Egalitarian Computing. These are the same researchers who came up with Equihash that is currently used in ZCash.
I think these cybersecurity awareness posters are absolutely genius! We often focus only on the technical aspects of security and neglect one of the most important factors: the human element. Training workers is a vital link in the chain of security.
People and technology must work together to maintain a strong defense from cyber-attacks. Modern day pirates, sans the parrots and peg legs, are also using sophisticated techniques to track potential shipping targets and understanding what is on their manifest. This aids them in locating where to intercept the vessel and going right to where the best loot is after boarding a ship on the high seas.

Hola a todos,
En estos dias, World Community Grid estuvo corriendo un Beta Testing de su proyecto Smash Childhood Cancer debido a problemas con las unidades de trabajo para Android en donde los resultados terminaban siendo invalidos (Discusión de este problema aquí).
Me gusta participar en los Beta Testings y esto no es la excepción. Lo que me sorprendió fue recibir muchas tareas Beta para mis unidades Android que me hizo llegar a 180 días de procesamiento de trabajo. Por eso, he recibido la Medalla Rubí: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/images/pb/beta_3.jpg
Estas son mis estadísticas hasta este momento del dia de hoy:
Y estos son mis equipos Android
Do I speak Tagalog? No!
I'm I Filipino? Yes, by every means!
Filipinos in general think this isn't possible. By every means, everyone knows this is very possible! But let's not go into that.
I was born in Greece and my first language turned out to be Greek. Again, that is not my point!
How have I coped; living in the Philippines alone and not knowing the language? I doubt that I will ever be able to learn Tagalog. Perhaps, I am too old?
Philippines has mostly Tagalog everywhere, especially in Manila. But English help matters! Everyone knows some English. The signs are in English! Schools are bound to teach some courses in English. This has made it possible to thrive.
However, I end up not learning Tagalog. People try to speak English when they meet you speaking English. Some people test their English, when they meet you speak English.
Bottomline, I have not been able to learn Tagalog. I may know up t
The Samsung Exynos 8895 houses an Octa core CPU. Samsung has equipped the processor with four next generation Mongoose, and four Cortex A-53 cores, clocked at 2.5Ghz and 1.7Ghz respectively. It supports 4K video recording and playback at 120fps.
The Snapdragon 835 also features an Octa-core CPU with Qualcomm’s Kryo 280 cores which are arranged in two clusters of four cores, clocked at 2.45GHz and 1.9GHz, but the chipset is limited to 4K video recording and playback at 30fps which is inferior to the Exynos 8895. However, The Adreno 540 GPU inside the Snapdragon 835 is more powerful than the ARM Mali-G71 MP20 GPU that’s used in
Apple pays about $3.2B of cash to shareholders every three months, or nearly $13B per year. To put this number into context, there are about 325M Americans, and apples dividend payment could be distributed in such a way that each American would get $40 per year, every year. Of course shareholders are based around the world, but it is truly a staggering amount of money.The pallets of cash below shows about $10B of cold hard cash, in $100 bills.
During these days, World Community Grid has been running a Beta Test for their Smash Childhood Cancer project due to Android workunits results being invalid (Beta test discussion over here).
I love to participate in Beta Tests and this is no exception. What I didn't expected was to receive such amount of Android workunits that it made me reach to 180 days of runtime. Because of this, I received the Ruby Badge for Beta Testing: https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/images/pb/beta_3.jpg
These are my stats up to this point of the day:
And these are my Android devices running BOINC and participating in World Community Grid:
Fly Board - Hover Board
On 16 April 2016 Franky Zapata set a new Guinness World Record for the furthest hoverboard flight in the South Of France. He managed a distance of 2.25 km at a height of about 50 m.
The craft can reach a speed of 150 km/h at a height of 3048 m. The Flyboard® Air can fly for up to 10 minutes.
The Flyboard® Air has 4 engines and complicated electronics to stabilize the machine. The fuel is carried on the
flyers (Or will we call it a pilot?) back.
Below is a photo of the Flyboard® Air.
Below is a video of the Flyboard® Air in action.
I really love this anime, and so, wanted to share this video I found on YouTube about it and wanted to share =],
The Philosophy of the Stand Alone Complex, because the show is really deep and great for philosophy and futurism.

This is Part 5 of a video report I put together that delves into Mind Control and Radio Frequency. If you scroll to the bottom, you'll find Parts 1-4 and a brief Introduction of the material and myself preceding it.
I started researching these topics on the CIA.gov Freedom of Information Act Library. This study uses a 1972 Cold War Era report on Radio Frequency Mind Control Tests, Synthetic Telepathy, Remote Viewing (RV), Psychokinesis (PK) and other MK Ultra related topics in a report entitled "Controlled Modified Behavior". (clicking this will link directly to the CIA.gov library to download the document)
In 1972, the United States was knee deep in the cold war. They were concerned about significant progress being made by the (then) Soviet Union in the aforementioned fields of
Psychoenergetics. It helps to understand the material in this context. T
