Split-screen short animation that describe the beginning of time from a creationist and evolutionist perspective. An ironic take on the subject, Duelity tells the creationist’s version of the beginning of the universe using the language of science and presents the scientific cosmology of evolutionists using Biblical lingo.
Beautifully designed and illustrated with a very clean, tight animation style, the shorts can be watched separately or side-by-side simultaneously. The look and imagery of each piece coincides perfectly with the scientific or religious wording. It’s a paradoxical experiment that shows just how much the language we use can influence the way we present and receive ideas.

Large Collider 'being sabotaged from the future'

SCIENTISTS claim the giant atom-smashing Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is being jinxed from the future to save the world.

In a bizarre sci-fi theory, Danish physicist Dr Holger Bech Nielsen and Dr Masao Ninomiya from Japan claim the LHC startup has been delayed due to nature trying to prevent it from finding the elusive Higgs boson, or "God particle".

They say their maths proves that nature will "ripple backward through time" to stop the LHC before it can create the God particle, like a time traveller who goes back in time to kill his grandfather.

“One could even almost say that we have a model for God,” Dr Nielsen says in an unpublished essay.

“He rather hates Higgs particles, and attempts to avoid them.”

"While it is a paradox to go back in time and kill your grandfather, physicists agree there is no paradox if you go back in time and save him from being hit by a bus," Dannis Overbye wrote in the New York Times.

"In the case of the Higgs and the collider, it is as if something is going back in time to keep the universe from being hit by a bus."

“It must be our prediction that all Higgs producing machines shall have bad luck,” Dr Nielsen told the New York Times.

European science agency CERN designed the world's biggest particle accelerator to shoot beams around a freezing 27km concrete ring underground near Geneva, smashing atoms together in search of the elusive "God particle" which is believed to have been present at the Big Bang.

The multi-billion-dollar machine, built over almost 20 years, was set to launch in late 2008 but broke down after it overheated during a test run.

The relaunch was pushed back to late 2009 as more parts had to be replaced, and CERN was recently scandalised when a LHC scientist was found to have approached al-Qaeda for work.

The LHC - which features in sci-fi plots such as Dan Brown's Angels and Demons and the new TV show FlashForward - has been dubbed a "doomsday device" with claims it will open black holes.

Last year, Professor Brian Cox of Manchester University told the UK Telegraph that LHC scientists had received threatening emails and phone calls demanding that the experiment be halted.

But Prof Cox, ex-keyboardist for 1990's pop group D:REAM, dismissed the hysteria in rock-star style.

"Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a tw--," he said.

The LHC is set to start up again next month.

The Musical Piano Stairs

Escalator or the Amazing Piano Stairs?

Swedish designers create an amazing stairs for fun, with the musical sounds and Piano style. They also survey, for what the commuters will do and choose if they see this type of stairs.  There should be more of these great ideas to get people exercising more. If you ask me I will choose this really entertaining stairs rather than moving stairs haha.. and this can remove my stress while I am going to my work. but the sounds is annoying if lot of commuters will work here. and also this can help for those who really want  to create their new sound effect specially for all composers, they dont need to brought their keyboard to compose hahaha, It's awesome right. And, yet, part of me wonders how creepy this would be if you were descending into the subway alone late at night. do..re...mi.. Fa.. so..La..ti..Do!!..(^_^)!

WINDOW by David Stone

Window by David Stone
This DVD edition of  brings you the new excitement and Tricks specially in doing magic using Card and Window techniques by David Stone and also the slow tutorials using the new technology and Great visual effects.

Card through glass effects cost upward of $300 and usually require complicated setups or bizarre gimmicks. Until now it’s been difficult to gain visual appeal and still keep your wallet full.
The trick plays out in real life exactly like the trailer.  Watch yourself do it in the mirror and rip your eyes out.

There are six routines given in the DVD but you'll come up with your own.
Basically, a selected card penetrates the glass, then changes into a different selected card while that one is behind glass. 

There’s a beautiful gimmick INCLUDED.  The gimmick takes an hour and a half to manufacture but David Stone makes each one himself by hand. *
How hard is WINDOW?  Easier than Tarantula but harder than the Ball & Vase.  You won’t have problems. 

There are several ways to perform the effect.  In the most difficult routine you do a force and a top change.  In the easiest you simply make the card change behind glass.
The reset is instant.

You’ll have a perfect time making your reputation with WINDOW. Order it today.
  • Ultra Visual
  • Instant reset
  • Unlimited Possibilities
  • Hand the card out and leave it with the spectator
  • Training by FISM winner David Stone
  • 6 Complete routines
  • Hand-made sturdy gimmick INCLUDED
  • No one ever sees the gimmick or knows it's there
  • Access to Ellusionist Protected WINDOW FORUM to discuss new creative routines and performance notes

Pick which way gets 20 times the reaction.
The Erdnase change above, or doing the exact same thing to
a card with a massive pane of glass in the way.

*David Stone doesn’t really make the gimmicks, he’s too busy performing the trick to people who pay good money to see him. Your hand-made gimmick will be included in your package though, no worries.  :-)
Want to hear more about the effect and its creators? Listen to David Stone and Jean-Luc Bertrand talk about Window, the Paris magic scene, how they develop magic effects and why Jack Bauer is never seen going to the restroom.

Mirror Rubiks - The Mind Destroyer

Mirror Rubiks Cube, God Level Rubiks puzzle

It’s a single colored Rubik’s cube, with a mirror surface and uncommon shape of blocks! You won’t find any ‘cube’ at all in this Rubik’s cube. Perhaps that’s why Brando call it “IQ Blocks”.

While it functions just like a regular Rubik’s Cube, the Rubik’s Mirror Blocks Cube has different sized blocks - which means it gets very distorted very fast. Instead of puzzling out simple colors, you’ll be trying to fight with geometric space, which is great fun. What is also great fun is seeing the look on the faces of others as they fiddle with your cube. Rubik’s Mirror Blocks Cube - the future is here.

  1. Transformed Mirror IQ Blocks – Silver
  2. Left and Right Brain Exercise
  3. Smooth Rotation, Easy to Handle, Light weight
  4. Good for Logical Thingker & Improve both your IQ & EQ
  5. Hints: Tea Break & Retry it
  6. Functions: Left & Right Brain training, IQ & EQ Training, home and office fun
  7. Dimension(approx.): 5.5 x 5.5 x 5.5 cm
Actually, they are exactly as they should be: silver and weird. While it functions just like a regular Rubik's Cube, the Rubik's Mirror Blocks Cube has different sized blocks - which means it gets very distorted very fast. Instead of puzzling out simple colors, you'll be trying to fight with geometric space, which is great fun. What is also great fun is seeing the look on the faces of others as they fiddle with your cube. Rubik's Mirror Blocks Cube - the future is here.

Once you scrambled the position, you will obtain a really weird looking with no similarity at each of the sides. Now this is a real new challenge for cube-solver. Challenger are challenged by shapes instead of color like the traditional Rubik’s Cube.
However, if you choose to use it for desk decoration only, you can still use it as a mirror since the surface can reflect your face pretty well.

Rubik's Mirror Blocks Cube
  • Works just like a regular Rubik's cube, but with different sized (and same colored) cubes, it gets really funky looking really fast.
  • Includes: cube and stand
  • Dimensions: 2.25" cubed (duh)
Rubik's Mirror Blocks, with its exploded segments and weirdly foreshortened grid, looks like the classic cube puzzle gone wrong. It's exactly the same size — at least when solved — but unlike the original, every side is the same color.
At this point, I have three choices.
• Hellraiser joke about solving puzzle boxes and going strait to hell without passing go.
• Personal anecdote about Rubik's cube from the 1980s.
• Praise self for getting through a post about Rubik without using the phrases "mindbending" or "fiendish."
Either way, I'm gonna pull the trigger on this one when they appear here in the west (It's apparently Japan-only right now). Why waste time on the inadvertent puzzles found in gadgets' user interfaces? Here's video:

And watch how to solve this by Takumi Yoshida in 55.47 seconds.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Causes and Treatment.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

This syndrome occurs when the median nerve runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The median nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers (although not the little finger), as well as impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move. The carpal tunnel - a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand - houses the median nerve and tendons. Sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the median nerve to be compressed. The result may be pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. Although painful sensations may indicate other conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common and widely known of the entrapment neuropathies in which the body's peripheral nerves are compressed or traumatized.

Is a medical condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, leading to paralyze, numbness and weakness of the muscles in the hand.
The definitive treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is carpal tunnel release surgery. This is effective at relieving symptoms and preventing further nerve damage, but established nerve dysfunction in the form of static numbness, or weakness are usually permanent.
Most cases of this syndrome are idiopathic or without a specific cause. Some patients are genetically predisposed to develop the condition. Night symptoms and waking at night are characteristic of established carpal tunnel syndrome. They can be managed effectively with night-time wrist splinting in most patients.

For everyone who works daily on a computer. The mistakes daily mouse and keyboard usage will result in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome! Use the mouse and keyboard correctly. View below for the surgery of a patient suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome followed by the RIGHT TECHNIQUES for usage....

View some images below for the causes and some treatments:

Correct way to work on the Computer



Hand Exercises for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome :

How can This Syndrome be prevented?

At the workplace, workers can do on-the-job conditioning, perform stretching exercises, take frequent rest breaks, wear splints to keep wrists straight, and use correct posture and wrist position. Wearing fingerless gloves can help keep hands warm and flexible. Workstations, tools and tool handles, and tasks can be redesigned to enable the worker's wrist to maintain a natural position during work. Jobs can be rotated among workers. Employers can develop programs in ergonomics, the process of adapting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of workers. However, research has not conclusively shown that these workplace changes prevent the occurrence of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Hope that this Information can help to you for having Healthy Life.

Thanks for Vistor.

Pepeng could be super-typhoon, New Typhoon in October 2009 Philippines

Major dams to release water for buffer storage
MANILA - Weather bureau PAGASA on Thursday said typhoon Pepeng (international codename Parma) is forecast to bring more rains and very strong winds in Northern Luzon including Metro Manila once it makes landfall Saturday afternoon.

"There is a big possibility that it will become a supertyphoon. This is a very strong storm, packing winds of 175 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 210 kph. Most likely it will make landfall in the afternoon of Saturday. That is when it is most critical," Nathaniel Cruz, PAGASA director for operations, said in a press briefing.

Cruz said Pepeng is much stronger than last Saturday's tropical storm Ondoy (international codename Ketsana), which brought record amounts of rainfall and triggered the worst flooding in Metro Manila in 40 years.
"In terms of wind intensity, Ondoy was only half of the strength of Pepeng. When it made landfall, Ondoy only had winds of 85 kph while Pepeng is 175 kph. However, we cannot really compare the two because it was the rain that was really destructive about Ondoy," he said.
He added: "Our major concern with Pepeng is the disastrous winds - 175 kph to 210 kph. We expect typhoon Pepeng to intensify further as it moves towards northern Luzon."
He said the weather bureau will give a forecast on the typhoon's estimated rainfall intensity before it makes landfall.

As of 10 a.m., the new typhoon was sighted 520 km east of Borongan, Eastern Samar and is moving 24 kilometers per hour in the general direction of Northern Luzon and the Taiwan area.
Cruz said the typhoon is forecast to make landfall over Aurora-Isabela by Saturday morning. It said the typhoon will bring occasional rains over the eastern section of Luzon and Visayas and more frequent rains in Samar and Bicol Thursday afternoon.
Storm Signal no.1 remains hoisted in  Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur and Catanduanes, he added.

Similar to 'Reming'
Cruz also likened typhoon Pepeng to super-typhoon Reming (international codename Durian), which killed at least 734 people in the country in 2006.
"This could be like Reming. We are not just talking here about Metro Manila. We are talking of the entire Luzon area where there is probability of devastation in terms of flooding...and wind," he said.
Dr. Susan Espinueva, assistant weather services chief of the Hydro Metrological Division of PAGASA, said major dams in Northern Luzon will be releasing water today until Friday before Pepeng hits.
"All major dams in Northen Luzon wll be releasing water to lower the water level so that when the storm hits, there will be a buffer of storage capacity in our dams and the spillover will not be as severe,' she said.

The government has started preparing more evacuation centers as it anticipates more people to be displaced by the new storm.
Disaster officials fear more rains spawned by the typhoon could trigger another massive flood as streets and drainage systems remain clogged from the tons of debris left by the previous deluge caused by tropical storm Ondoy (international codename Ketsana).
As of 6 a.m., the National Disaster Coordinating Council said more than half a million families of 2.50 million individuals have been affected by Ondoy in 11 regions, including Metro Manila and the Calabarzon area in southern Luzon.

It said that a total of 686,699 people are now staying in 726 evacuation centers. It said Ondoy’s death toll has reached 277 and 42 were still missing.

The storm, which also devastated Vietnam and Cambodia, damaged crops and infrastructure worth at least P4.80 billion. as of 10/01/2009 12:52 PM
