Find out exactly how they can each help you in a variety of situations, enhance your life and/or boost your creativity.
Most of the world population, whether they are ‘racist’ or ‘anti-racist’, perceive ‘differences in race’ as biologically real, meaning, as being the parameters that decide the classification of humans into genetically separate groups. Nothing could be further from the truth, because, over the years, geneticists, biologists and anthropologists have found compelling evidence that race, as a primary genetic divergence is biologically invalid.
There is no neurological patterning that distinguishes races from one another, nor are there patterns in muscle development and structure, digestive tracts, hand-eye coordination, or any other such measures.
Today, data show that the DNA of any two human beings is 99.9 percent identical, and we all share the same set of genes, scientifically validating the existence of a single biological human race and one origin for all human beings.
Being tanned seems to be synonymous of healthy and beautiful, but, is this new aesthetical fashion, lasting for some decades now, a trend that may cost us not only a good part of our health but even our lives?
Is it sensible to literally spend hours under the sun?
We have the pleasure to interview Dr. ROBYN LUCAS, from the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (Australia) on the effects of overexposure to ultraviolet radiation as well as the environmental effects on immune function to find out exactly what ‘prize’ is at the end of this particular beauty contest.
For as long as humanity has dreamt, we have felt a justified curiosity and fascination about the nature of our dreams: why we have them, what they mean or if even they mean anything at all, what they tells us about the nature of our own existence, whether we can control them… etc. This fascination has naturally fuelled many literary and film works, a famous one being Inception (2010) which directed our attention to some aspects of the science involved in attaining the understanding we long for.
Professor DEIRDRE L. BARRETT, author and teacher at Harvard Medical School, is widely known for her clinical work on dreams and her contributions to creativity and objective problem solving. She has interviewed many modern artists and scientists in the use of their dreams, and has documented stories that happened to subsidized Nobel laureates and MacArthur geniuses whose ideas originated in dreams. In her clinical research, she also confirms that we can learn new skills in our dreams, and find solutions to our problems, as well as through hypnosis.
ENGINEERING LIFE: An Exclusive Interview with Distinguished Prof. George J. Annas (Health Law, Bioethics & Human Rights)
We are on the highway of genetic manipulation, cloning and molecular biotechnology, to the final destination of the engineering of all life.
Today, genetically modified seeds are being promoted to farmers, we have already cloned animals and are, in fact, in the early stages of manipulating human embryos in order to design our progeny.
It would be profoundly unfair to say that all our medical, scientific and technical advancements in this area are being pursued for the sake of power, notoriety and financial gain. The fact is that most of our doctors, scientists and engineers chose their specialties and poured their lives into their particular research because they genuinely wanted to prevent and end human suffering such as disease, physical pain, thirst, hunger, devastation, impediments, desolation, etc.
Still, there are a strong few who love turning these advancements into profit-making schemes, thus tilting the balance dangerously toward destructive tendencies that, ultimately, affect us all. We are all everyday witnesses of how easily and rapidly these destructive tendencies spread…
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DR RICHARD MASSEY (FIRST TO PROVIDE A 3D MAP OF THE LARGE-SCALE DISTRIBUTION OF DARK MATTER)
DR. RICHARD MASSEY is a physicist currently working as Royal Society Research Fellow in the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University. Previously, he was a senior research fellow in astrophysics at the California Institute of Technology and STFC Advanced Fellow at the Institute for Astronomy of the University of Edinburgh. He is renowned for his studies of dark matter, including the first 3D map of its large-scale distribution and its behaviour during collisions. He was awarded the 2011 Philip Leverhulme Prize in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH DAVID DEUTSCH (British physicist who pioneered the field of quantum computation)
DAVID DEUTSCH, the award-winning British physicist who pioneered the field of quantum computation, laid the foundations of the quantum theory of computation, specified an algorithm designed to run on a quantum computer, formulated the theory of quantum logic gates and quantum computational networks, discovered the first quantum error-correction scheme, and several fundamental quantum universality results. He has set the agenda for worldwide research efforts in this new, interdisciplinary field, made progress in understanding its philosophical implications (via a variant of the many-universes interpretation) and made it comprehensible to the general public, notably in his books The Fabric of Reality and The Beginning of Infinity…
If you are one of the very few people out there who haven’t yet experienced the hacking of their email and/or social networking accounts, don’t be mistaken, you are not invulnerable: it can only take one click, one careless mistake, one apparently safe download or the temptation to engage in a fun social game. Your world can be hacked in a myriad ways…
