There is no biological law that says the body must wear out, that we must age, that we must die. Hypothetically, it should be easy enough to live forever as the energy expenditure for maintaining the present structure pales in comparison to the expen

Improve Your Decision-Making
2008-05-19 02:03:00
Evolution has gifted us the most complicated entity yet found on Earth: our minds. But in many ways the mind is also a clumsy, cobbled together contraption with many predictable flaws. In his new book Professor Gary Marcus of New York University likens the mind to a ''kluge'' - an engineering term meaning a clumsy or inelegant solution to a problem.To combat the ''klugey'' nature of our minds, Professor Marcus provides 13 quick techniques based on psychological research to help us combat its inherent flaws in decision-making. 1. Whenever possible, consider .........

"The 20th anniversary of the publication of [Roger] Ebert''s Two Weeks in the Midday Sun: A Cannes Notebook - perhaps the best book ever written about experiencing the Cannes Film Festival - gives us an excellent occasion to revisit this classic and consider just how the Cannes of today has changed, or failed to change, since the 1980s," writes Kenneth T Rivers in a timely piece for the new issue of Bright Lights Film Journal (in which editor Gary Morris suggests that something big and, above all, bright is in the works, details of which are to be divulged .........

Water - H2O = Life
2008-03-31 00:53:00
Water is a common chemical substance that is essential to all known forms of life. In typical usage, water refers only to its liquid form or state, but the substance also has a solid state, ice, and a gaseous state, water vapor. About 1,460 teratonnes of water covers 71% of the Earth''s surface, mostly in oceans and other large water bodies.Employed by cultures around the world in rituals and ceremonies, water bathes us from birth to death. Water is essential to life as we know .........

Why Psychology is Not

, and work on from there. These types of findings are the best evidence for how much more psychology is than just common sense. Ultimately what really sets psychology apart from common sense is the scientific method.Ultimately what really sets psychology apart from common sense is the scientific method. Psychology tests common sense ideas about people (along with some nonsensical ideas) to try and find out the truth. Sometimes common sense is proved right, other times not. But, again, let''s not be too down on common sense. While psychologists are usually sensitive and .........

When I came across this near the pines, I was stumped. The tree that this once was grew near my northwest corner in some deep, good, completely un-Ozark type soil. It is close to but not right on the fence, and there are plenty of other trees of its same size growing nearby. It’s not apparent why this particular tree was taken while so many around it were .........

Is Happier Always Better?
2007-12-20 06:05:00
People around the world value happiness - that is, feeling good - above intelligence, success and even material wealth (Diener & Oishi, 2006). This makes sense because happiness is associated with so many positive outcomes: satisfaction with personal relationships, better jobs, better performance in those jobs and a higher income. But happiness is much more complex than this. For example dissatisfaction with our current job probably helps motivate us to get a better one. A person who is happy with their job is less likely to strive for a change. In our relationships, though, less .........

Maybe you've only gone on one or two dates with her but you're planning on seeing her again. You think that a gift is in order but you haven't been seeing each other long enough to be sure.

Want to take a look into the future to plan your future strategy? That's anyone's guess. But now offers the Future Scanner , a vaguely Digg-tool that gives some hints of future directions. From cell phones with mini-projectors hitting the market next year to GM introducing an electronic car in 2010.Not the best designed site, which means it won't appeal to everyone, but it's worth a peek.As for predicting the future, it's still fraught because unexpected stuff will always keep happening.

Brick Lane
2007-11-20 01:54:00
"Sarah Gavron''s feature version of Monica Ali''s novel represents a modest slimming down of the original''s dimensions; what emerges could almost be described as a chamber-piece, set in one cramped east London flat," writes Peter Bradshaw. "Perhaps venturing out into the real Brick Lane would have been impolitic, considering the unedifying row that surrounded its filming, and some might argue that there is a sense of withdrawal or retreat in the movie as a whole." The Guardian also offers an accompanying "quick world tour" of major cities as they''ve been depicted on .........

The Great Fall sweater/coat debate
2007-10-22 03:13:00
I don't know about you but I LOVE fall. I love the warm coats, the soft sweaters, the feeling of being all bundled up and don't forget the hot chocolate, yummy! Ok, I am getting a little ahead of myself here with all the hot chocolate talk, let's get back to the clothes. One dilemma I often face is sweater alone or sweater with jacket during these cool fall days, most times I opt for sweater alone, but often I pick a heavier sweater. Here are two of my favorites.They may be famous for their bras and underwear but their sweaters are simply divine. This one is long enough .........

"The movies made during the studio era - what the cineastes have dubbed 'the classical Hollywood cinema' - are, along with jazz, America's best creative work from the late 1920s to about 1950." And yet, "ny Hollywood history illuminates the dichotomy between those movies that the system most highly prized and those we love now, raising some doubts about the much-vaunted 'genius of the system.'"

Coach Bleecker Duffle Sac Purse
2007-10-03 04:10:00
The original Coach Duffle Sac, produced in the early 70's, has been brought back from the dead and reinterpreted for today to be featured in Coach's latest Bleecker Collection. Available in a couple sizes (price range $328 to $448) and in a bunch of dark natural colors - Bottle green, British tan, Cora black, Ink blue, Rust, Wine and Brass Putty. I'm not a huge fan of the earth-tone colors. Well the blue-ish ink color is kinda cool, but nothing for me to go crazy about. So if you are like me and are looking for a bleecker bag with a little bit more lively color, then mark your calendars, .........

Nick Schager at Slant on Fierce People : "Director Griffin Dunne's ability to elicit fine performances from [Diane] Lane and [Donald] Sutherland, who share a mature, authentic chemistry, initially overshadows the easy-target critique supplied by Dirk Wittenborn's script (from his own novel).

I was sitting here, chewing my pencil, conscious that I'd not added anything to this list for a while, wondering what I should add. Then it struck me - pencils. They're good. They're ordinary. They're probably even interesting, I remember being interested by the pencil museum in Keswick. And by Henry Petroski's book, which I've got somewhere. And I also remember reading about the discontinuation of the Blackwing, apparently the best pencil ever, only now available on ebay. Maybe I could order one from there and write about how good it felt to write with it. But when I googled 'best pencil in .........

The Nines is "an intriguing, episodic film that starts out genuinely creepy and funny and ends up like an overblown Twilight Zone episode," writes Andrew O'Hehir at Salon. "Hell, at least it's a good Twilight Zone episode. [John] August's directing debut - he's a veteran screenwriter who's penned several films for Tim Burton, including Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Corpse Bride - occasioned a certain amount of yammer at Sundance last winter, but I honestly can't see much here to discuss. By all means see the film; it's an ingenious, interlocking construction worthy of .........

Great Racing at the 2007 Monterey Historics
2007-08-26 13:50:00
I may as well be blowing in the wind with this thought but when I attended the Mont erey Classics Week last year I found myself wishing the accompanying vintage races at Laguna Seca could be held at a different time of year. Yes, the Monterey Historics are a natural tie-in to Pebble Beach but with three days of competition it became a matter of Laguna vs. the Concours. I couldn't afford to miss the latter yet wanted to see all three days of historic racing, for this is one of the best vintage race weekends in America. I settled for just one day, which I didn't enjoy as much as I .........
