Cool article
Acupuncture is currently gaining popularity as an important modality of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the western world. Acupuncture has shown efficacy in the treatment of postoperative and chemotherapy nausea and vomiting. It has also become a beneficial adjunct for pain ...

To be contented human beings we need trust and friendship, which tends to develop much better once we realise that all beings have a right to happiness, just as we do. Taking others’ interests into account not only helps them, it also helps us. Warm-heartedness and concern for others are a part of human nature and are at the core of positive human values.

that is fantastic
 
Welcome to the fascinating world of Eulerian Video Magnification and other motion magnification techniques currently being explored at MIT.

From the NYTimes:
"A 30-second video of a newborn baby shows the infant silently snoozing in its crib, his breathing barely perceptible. But when the video is run through an algorithm that can amplify both movement and color, the baby’s face blinks crimson with each tiny heartbeat.

"The amplification process is called Eulerian Video Magnification, and is the brainchild of a team of scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory."

Physicists Measure Speed of “Spooky Action At a Distance”
http://www.technologyreview.com/view/512281/chinese-physicists-measure-speed-of-spooky-action-at-a-distance/

One of the strangest concepts in quantum mechanics is the notion of entanglement. This is the idea that two quantum particles can be so deeply linked that they share the same existence. When that happens, a measurement on one immediately influences the other, regardless of the distance between them. 

This “spooky action at a distance”, as Einstein called it, has puzzled and fascinated physicists since it was first discussed in the 1930s. Einstein initially used it as evidence of the failure of quantum mechanics since this instantaneous action clearly seemed to violate relativity.

Later, physicists realised there was no conflict because the “spooky action” cannot be used to send information faster than the speed of light. However, important questions remain about the nature of entanglement and spooky action.  “If the spooky action does exist, what is its speed?” ask Juan Yin and pals at the University of Science and Technology of China in Shanghai. 

Today, they reveal the answer. They say spooky action travels at least four orders of magnitude faster than light.

This 3D-printed shoe uses living protocells that can heal themselves, respond to the ground you walk on and even “eat” food coloring to change their look. http://bit.ly/1hReNHM
