Confirmed: April Is the Cruelest Month - Time Magazine

Be The First To Comment

Anybody wanna hibernate until May?
 “APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain.”
That’s a quote from a T.S. Eliot poem, but according to everybody’s favorite astrologer Susan Miller, April 2014 is going to be an absolutely horrific month for almost all of us. Of course, that’s only if you believe in astrology.
New York Magazine points out that in an interview given to theGuardian in January, Miller noted that two “angry eclipses” destined for us in April will cause some intense emotional upheaval, particularly for anyone born between April 15 and 29. From NY Mag:
Eclipses have a mission to expose truths, Miller writes, and thereby sweep away elements that are no longer relevant in your life. You might think they are relevant or important, she notes, when they are taken from you on April 15 or April 29, but they’re not.
And it gets worse. From the Guardian story:
“Look at 29 April!” I look. “Some people feel the stock market is…” She pauses for such a long beat that I offer to complete her sentence: “…going to crash?” She shakes her head. “This is even worse – we’ve not had this since the American Revolution.”
Miller also said that April looks so scary she’s “giving classes on it.” 
At least Mercury won’t be in retrograde?

Where the world’s biggest coffee drinkers live

1 Comment
Not all coffee drinkers are made equal. By Roberto A. Ferdman  January 15, 2014
America might be famous for running on coffee, but it doesn’t run on much. Not compared to a handful of other countries, anyway. When it comes to actual coffee consumption per person, the US doesn’t even crack the top 15.
For much of Europe, and especially Scandinavia, the story is quite different. In a review in 2010 about Stieg Larsson’s hit Swedish trilogy, the New York Times wrote incredulously about how the books’ scenes seemed to always revolve around endless servings of coffee:
…everyone works fervidly into the night and swills tons of coffee; hardly a page goes by without someone “switching on the coffee machine,” ordering “coffee and a sandwich” or responding affirmatively to the offer “Coffee?”
But as it turns out—and as the Times soon thereafter learned—the coffee obsession has much less to do with Larsson than it does with Sweden. Or really, with all of Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, and bits of Eastern Europe. The Netherlands’ per-capita consumption of 2.4 cups a day is almost the same as those of the US, UK, Spain, and France combined.

Fast and Furious Actor Paul Walker Dead at 40

Be The First To Comment

Paul Walker, an actor best known for his role as a fast-driving cop opposite bad-guy-gone-good Vin Diesel in the Fast and Furious movie series died on Saturday in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California, according to multiple sources. Walker was 40 years old.
News of the fatal crash spread first online after celebrity news site TMZ broke the story. Initially, most other news outlets and Twitter accounts picked it up as a report.
It was another hour before TMZ and then ABC News got confirmation from the actor's representatives.
TMZ's web site was inundated with traffic and, for a brief period of time, actually went down. When it returned, it appeared with this sentence added to the original story: "A rep for the actor confirms Paul died today in the crash after leaving a charity event."
According to the AP, Walker was a passenger in a friend's Porsche, which crashed into a light pole and tree before bursting into flames. Dramatic images of the wreckage soon spread on Twitter.

Top 5 Herbal Teas For More Energy

Be The First To Comment
1. Green Tea


This choice can be used for a variety of reasons but one of the things that it is known for is that it helps with providing natural energy. Not only does it taste great but the aroma can also be very soothing. You can drink this kind of tea plain or with your choice of sweetener or you could even add in honey for some extra flavor.

2. English Breakfast Tea
This tea is great for when you might want some eggs and then drink something that at the same time helps to boost up your energy. English breakfast is rather strong so if you don’t like strong tasting drinks then maybe stick with having the green tea for energy but if you don’t mind a strong taste then this might be perfect for you to have in the morning with your breakfast.

3. Jasmine Green Tea

If you get tired of just having regular green tea and would like something different then try out jasmine. This is a wonderful drink to have right before meditation. Feel the energy and at the same time it will help relieve stress because of how good it smells.

4. Oolong Tea

it has a great smell with it and it’s a perfect tea to have throughout the day. Whenever you need a pick me up or energy boost then Oolong tea might be just the thing that you need. The flavor is rather delicate and the aroma is just fantastic.

5. Caffeinated Earl Grey Teabags

There’s also decaf earl gray. If you are looking for an energy boost then make sure that you pick out the caffeinated drink and not the decaf or it might not help you. The decaf is perfect for at night when you would like to calm down but in the morning times go with the caffeinated version.
A lot of retailers will have a choice of caffeinated or decaf. Always make sure to read the label and don’t assume that there is caffeine in it. In order to get the energy boost that you need then grab the one that has caffeine. If you are sensitive to caffeine then search for the ones that say it is a light caffeinated version. In order to avoid staying awake all night look for soothing and calming decaf and have that after dinner.

I know most of frnds don't know about it but that's fact...so like this post for ur health..

Are we the Brain ??

1 Comment
brain textOne might propose that since we have yet to transplant someone’s brain maybe we are the brain. Most of us have heard of the famous neurosurgical experiments first documented by Dr. Wilder Penfield, where he stimulated the temporal cortex and stimulated particular memories during brain surgery. These results and their confirmations left scientists with an impression that life must reside in the brain since emotional memories were stimulated with the electrode testing.
 This assumption is disputed by other brain research over the past fifty years on both humans and animals, however. The assumption that the emotional self is contained in the brain has been conflicted by the many cases of emotions and memory following the removal of brain parts and even a majority of the brain. Mishkin (1978) documented that the removal of either the amygdala or the hippocampus did not severely impair memory. Mumby et al. (1992) determined that memory was only mildly affected in rats with hippocampus and amygdala lesions.
According to a substantial review done by Vargha-Khadem and Polkey (1992), numerous hemidecortication surgeries—the removal of half the brain—had been conducted for a number of disorders. In a majority of these cases, cognition and brain function continued uninterrupted. A few cases even documented an improvement in cognition. Additionally, in numerous cases of intractable seizures, where substantial parts of brain have been damaged, substantial cognitive recovery resulted in 80 to 90% of the cases.
   These and numerous other studies illustrate this effect—called neuroplasticity. In other words, the inner self is not reduced by brain damage or removal. The same person remains after brain parts are removed. The same personality remains. Many retain all their memories. The majority of brain-damaged stroke patients go about living normal lives afterward as well.
   Even in cases where memory, cognitive and/or motor skills are affected by cerebrovascular stroke, the person within is still present. Though handicapped, the person remains unaffected by the brain damage.
   Memory, sensory perception and the emotional self-concept are not brain-dependent. Many organisms have memory and sensory perception without having a brain. Bacteria, for example, do not have brains, yet they can memorize a wide variety of skills and events, including what damaged or helped them in the past. Other organisms such as plants, nematodes and others maintain memory and recall without having brains or even central nervous systems.
   MRI and CT brain scans on patients following brain injuries or strokes have shown that particular functions will often move from one part of the brain to another after the functioning area was damaged. We must therefore ask: Who or what is it that moves these physical functions from one part of the brain to another? Is the damaged brain area making this decision? That would not make sense. Some other guiding function must be orchestrating this move of the function. What or who is guiding this process?
   The retention of memory, emotion, and the moving of brain function from one part of the brain to another is more evidence of a deeper mechanism; an operator or driver within the body who is utilizing the brain—rather than being the brain. The driver is the continuing element. Physical structures continually undergo change, while the driver remains, adapting to those changes.
