Feliz Semana Google Plus
“Aquel que tiene un porqué para vivir se puede enfrentar a todos los cómos.”
By Friedrich Nietzsche

Hay situaciones que nos colocan en posiciones difíciles y solo los valientes que encuentran el verdadero propósito de la vida, los que superaran cada obstáculo que se les atraviese.

How can a three-pound mass of jelly that you can hold in your palm imagine angels, contemplate the meaning of infinity, and even question its own place in the cosmos? Especially awe inspiring is the fact that any single brain, including yours, is made up of atoms that were forged in the hearts of countless, far-flung stars billions of years ago. These particles drifted for eons and light-years until gravity and change brought them together here, now. These atoms now form a conglomerate- your brain- that can not only ponder the very stars that gave it birth but can also think about its own ability to think and wonder about its own ability to wonder. With the arrival of humans, it has been said, the universe has suddenly become conscious of itself. This, truly, it the greatest mystery of all.
- V.S. Ramachandran

EVERYTHING IS INTERRELATED -- Here is looking at how dust travels from the Sahara to the rainforest. -- Despite the negatives, the Sahara dust, which is essentially lakebed sediment, also acts as a fertilizer and has supplied plant nutrients to the Amazon.

Dust from the Bodélé depression – the site of a once massive lake in Chad – blown into the Amazon was found to have provided essential fertilizer for the jungles in the south American region and is believed to compensate for poor rainforest soils. As well as enriching dry land, Saharan dust has been found to help sustain life over extensive regions of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Researchers from the University of Liverpool found the dust storms help distribute nutrients including phosphorus and nitrogen to phytoplankton in areas of low nutrient levels.

9 November is reserved to Hedy Lamarr
She is remembered for her beauty on the silver screen, but the Hollywood actor spent her nights inventing a weapons communication system that was a precursor to wireless technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Lamarr also, captured international attention as the first female actor to simulate an orgasm in a non-pornographic film. 
Lamarr quickly got bored of Hollywood, though, and decided to try her hand at helping the Allied war effort instead. She had learned about military technology from her first husband, arms manufacturer Friedrich Mandle, and decided to use that knowledge for the greater good
.
She teamed up with her friend George Antheil, a composer, to figure out how to help stop German submarines from jamming Allied radio signals using the same mechanisms found in pianos. In 1942, she developed the “secret communication system,” a frequency-hopping mechanism that laid the foundation for the development of Bluetooth and wi-fi technology. She died at the age of 85 in 2000.

"Her idea of a good evening was a quiet dinner party with some intelligent friends where they could discuss ideas."
Indeed she falls in the category "Brains before beauty". ;)
