  2. look the talibs have got bad habits and some of it is propaganda to make the taliban lok bad, dont u know that mullah omer ,jalalludin haqqani, hikmatyar sepetrated themselves from these fake talibans in PK, yes these fake PK taliban r a wahabi cult i know thay r funded by the RAW MOSSAD CIA,any way PK army has to reconcile with the moderate afghan taliban to gain a stronger position in the region of khurasan (if u know what that is).

  3. #Jan17 - Twitter Search says:

    This reminds me of a half-baked plan I had in college. After learning about REM and non-REM sleep, I figured that two 4-hour cycles of sleep should be just as good as one 8-hour cycle. So after class, I’d go back to bed for 4 hours, do some problem sets, screw around on the Internet, then go back to sleep for another 4 hours. It didn’t really work for me. I remember feeling like I was losing touch with reality after one week of this. So maybe we’re already evolving 🙂

  4. naberlande says:

    Would you rather be a person who did 18 days of a challenge, or a person who never tried? 18 days a failure; it is a victory — smaller victory perhaps than 30 days would have been, but still a victory it is.

    (Also, I went back to yoga yesterday for the first time in five weeks. Are you proud of me? :))

    Hugs!

    I am very proud of you! Bravo! Do you know Matt music? Your comment here reminded me of one of his songs, “Little Victories.” a good one. Check it out.

  6. It is true that political motivation to develop these regions needed. In parliament there is no single moment spoken these region Therefore people has to demand their right.. Try to understand Democracy gave so many powers all you have to know is how to use it…..

  7. zorod evasser says:

    These are very interesting So I guess what you are saying here is that the Clinton surpluses were bolstered by tax revenues generated from the buying and selling of equities during the latter years of his presidency? what read. It was that, coupled to a lesser extent with his digging his sweaty paws into the Social Security surpluses.

  8. frazier braboulows says:

    For my own view, this would sure blur the line between church and state. (religion and To detractors, how is this community different than the scores of nudist colonies in FL? Why be all up in arms about Catholics wanting to live in likemindedness with their neighbors when nudists are everywhere in FL doing the same thing? Just a question…

    Well, more a matter of prioritizing – finishing one thing before moving on to the next.

  11. I am not sure whether this is really a comment on the growth of the tech sector or on the lack of growth in the finance sector. It could be that the anti-banker, anti-hedge fund policies of both the last government and to a lesser extent the current one are beginning to have some effect. The high earners really are abandoning London in favour of Geneva.

  12. I agree that child care should not be for profit. Making a profit out of the care of young children means that corners are being cut somewhere, what are our young children missing out on? Quality staff who actually care about the young children in their care? Equipment? Experiences? Interactions? Environments that inspire them? Not to mention appropriate nutritional food that covers their daily food requirements? A for profit centre like the ABC chains just seem to be able to deliver these as profits are the bottom line! just my opinion….though.

  13. karangrimp frant says:

    During the third trimester of pregnancy you may feel incredibly tired, but find yourself unable to drop off to sleep or waking up frequently at night unable to get back to sleep again. Your sleep disruption may be due to many things; physical your baby kicking, indigestion, nocturnal trips to the loo, or an inability to switch off mentally “” with your mind racing with exciting plans for the future, even in the small hours. This broken sleep can be incredibly distressing, leading to tiredness and depression, and leaving you with no energy and a sense of being disorientated. You may have some people tell you that this broken sleep in the third trimester of pregnancy is simply your body preparing you for the sleep deprivation …Pregnancy, Pregnancy Advice, pregnancy symptoms

  14. Other than that though, fantastic job. Love the commentary, love all the references, and love the random thoughts of life. I can very much relate to them all.

  15. butte prock says:

    yeah… I wanted to add it in my entry though. It was because of my REM sleep, and I woke up at that stage, that is why I was paralysed. I think, I was just being too paranoid on this matter. I guess I really coped well with my previous dream~~~ It has given me a of trauma I guess… Thanks Dr.Cheng Hiang! 😀

    You have been sick for 18 days? Wow! I would back to exercise slowly. Make sure you stay hydrated. Listen to your body. If you have a fever and body aches, skip the work out. If you just have a bit of a stuffy head left over, you can work out, but expect to be able to push hard. Walking or using the elliptical trainer are good to Hope you feel better!

  18. another question, which might be a whole nother post:

  19. imrankhankundi says:

    Yeah, OK. When my sons were young we built 13 layouts in the loft, had 200 locos and loads of coaches, wagons ets. When they left home and got wed I flogged the lot for some £7,000 . Trainz has replaced all that. Just laid the track for a layout and it will take a train 90 minutes to do a full circuit at 80 mph. At 74 yrs it keeps me alive !! I do a lot of live modern trains on video and stills etc..Aint life great.

  24. Not related to the course but you might find this pretty interesting – “Communications giant Nokia, Disney Research in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and a Finnish firm called Senseg are all developing displays that use voltages of different frequencies, applied to a grid below the touchscreen, to trick our into experiencing a wide variety of touch sensations. They are known as vibrotactile displays.”

    Concave Spirit: Sleep cycles.

    Our body rests in multiple cycles of 90 minutes. If the cycle is near termination when you wake up, you will feel rested. Even if it was only 90minutes.

    However, if you break the cycle anywhere in the middle (or during some specific time which I cannot recall), you will feel even more tired than when you had only napped for 90 minutes.

  30. Thanks Maggie, for dropping me a few lines on random thoughts. Yes! I notice that our thoughts consisted of some of same words. I also notice that other classmate’s random thoughts have some of the same words too. Do you think it could be that we all wrote on the same assigned topics?

    I like how the color black plays out in the theme of your blog. Job well done on your blog!

  31. This is stupid! A coalition of the minority to go against the Prime Minister. Dude, forming a new government that will be working for the interest of the people… but the people of Canada voted for Harper to be their Prime Minister NOT DION who said he will resign after his defeat who is now still here trying to be the next prime minister.

  32. Well, it works to do the 15 minutes to get yucky stuff done too. I assume you posted about your Fearless Why. I love that! I really want to read about it. (Link, please!) I think been on a self-love adventure for a while too… I just recognize it until recently.

    And yes, I agree. If you think you have 15 minutes, not looking closely enough.

  34. Christopher Pellegrini says:

    Uchikawa ranks tops for right handed batters, surpassing Tuffy Rhodes at .369 in 1999 for best right handed batting average.

    more, Uchikawa break into the lineup until the end of April. Give him 10 more and he could have become the first 200 hit right handed batter.

    I never really gave much thought to how much of a disadvantage right handed batters have until Nikkan rattling off the lefty vs. righty production numbers.

  35. OK, so the cruel irony about not being pregnant anymore is that sleep is again but I am not getting ANY with my newborn around. I really believe how sleep deprived I would feel. Sleep towards the end of pregancy was WAY more satisfying than the 45min-2 hour max cat naps I get now. Not to scare you but ENJOY these last few weeks alone cuz these ones are exhausting in a completely different way.

  36. Ed your summary of years is pure Daily Mail. How about: Peace in Ireland, independence of Bank of England, Devolution, massive improvements in NHS, Education, reduction in crime and the longest period of economic prosperity in our modern histroy, not to mention that it feels now like we live in a modern braoadly fair society. Iraq and unquestioning of Bush were his major downfalls.

    actually the orange puffle comes out every 15 minutes.

    Fuggetabout unquenchable hatred for Ken Miller or Paul Gallegos or Tim McKay as a basis for discussion. Very few people retain that much anger and hatred toward so many.

  40. “Wednesday’s results in CONCACAF Champions League play made for perhaps the most shocking night of football in recent Major League Soccer history. As the clock struck midnight, the only MLS team still standing was a Canadian one. In all ways, it reinforced the notion that over 90 minutes, anything can happen. Still, it’s hard not to play the what-if game in the aftermath. What if Santos Laguna goalkeeper Oswaldo Sánchez hadn’t made that brilliant double-save on Álvaro Fernández and Brad Evans just eight minutes in against Seattle? Would an early Sounders goal have completely changed the face of the game?”

    Dear PingSkills,My current backhand block is just placing the bat in the right location and pushing forward without using the wrist. It is very consistent. The only thing is I want to put more power into the stroke which I can’t without using the wrist. The basic question I have is how exactly should my wrist snap? Should it be moving from up to down or from left to right (for a right handed player) ?Thanks in advance!

(Im not really sure why were paralyzed during REM sleep but ill look into it, i am not even sure if it is known yet) But it could be that you were on the verge of waking up and your body was freaking out because it really move which is probably why you woke up. 🙂

Sales in Singapore bear the same purpose in life that nudist colonies bear to swarms of mosquitoes, i.e. attract the females of the species in a blind frenzy with males behind saying feebly .” but….but ….we do not need any more AB+   “.

Recently, I was such a hapless husband following my wife like a guided missile but with far less firepower. This was the occasion..

  48. Being left handed myself has also posed a bit of a problem when it came to school when I was younger. Having teachers who were right handed were able to help out other kids when they were learning how to print and learn cursive. For me, they were mostly unable to help as they found it awkward how to describe the writing motions to someone that was left handed.

    To see some advances made here would be great, as I had to rely on my Father who was also left handed to show me, rather than teachers.

  49. yeah, and that’s what I’m talking about.

    I have the at hand, but I remember some work by Bowles and Gintis in the past few years that placed IQ fairly far down on the list of the best predictors of income. If I remember correctly, things like wealth, etc. were more highly correlated with future income.

I think that with the coach.As much as the players back to the “Take long jumpers/stand around and watch LeBron” version of offense, Brown always seems to back to his old bad habits of riding LeBron and not trusting his bench.

    I agree that it is most difficult to predict marathon times. The best predictors are Lance and his coach because they know what he has done to prepare for this race. As for general improvements, add that the variability in improvement in times has far more to do with consistency of training, amount of speed work (yup speed work!) and solid long runs. the faster you run, the less seconds per mile you will be cutting off. It just gets pretty tough at the top end speeds to continue improvement without some very specific training adjustments.

I have a cousin who is left tried writing and batting a baseball left handed, and it was really hard.

I wish I could use both hands equally efficiently.I also wish I was double & triple jointed so I could bend like those Cirque de Soliel performers.

  76. Yeah the argument I always hear in of soccer is that 90 minutes of playing time, while an NFL game, despite lasting three hours, has only maybe 25 to 30 minutes of actual on-field action. I concede the point. But with each snap anything can happen. Anything! In soccer you can have 90 minutes of absolutely nothing. Yeah, sign me up for that. It may be fun to play–I personally think so (USE YOUR FRICKING HANDS!)–but rather stare at a block of cheese for that amount of time than watch a soccer match. And saying something.

  77. Characteristics

    Acer palmatum is a deciduous shrub or small tree reaching heights of 6–10 m. The leaves are palmately lobed with five acutely pointed lobes. The flowers are produced in small cymes, the individual flowers with five red or purple sepals and five whitish petals. The fruit is a pair of winged samaras. The seeds of Japanese maple and similar species require stratification in order to germinate.

    Even in nature, Acer palmatum displays considerable genetic variation. Even seedlings with the same parent tree can show difference in such aspects as leaf size and shape, and color.

  93. Why does Mr. have to be accorded the title of Prime Minister if he is no longer the PM. We do not to have to follow what other countries do. we ever do things our way? Amazing how no one ever suggested the title for Sir Harold or Sir Erskine or Mr. Barrow. What is so special about Mr. that he must be elevated.As far as I am concerned the PM is there as a servant of the people. When they are no longer the PM they are to be respected for the role they had and treated as dignitaries but the current PM must not stand in his shadow.

Also there is a lack of interaction amongst each other which is creating a lack of social development and imagination for the children.

    who are RETIRED, or permanently out of play.

    For Beckles to suggest that a former PM who is STILL SERVING as a back-bencher of the Opposition should retain the title of Prime Minister is fatuous on his and can only arise from other suspect motives. Shame on him.

You need to train your community to think of buying individual flowers or small bouquets as a regular thing to treat friends and coworkers to. Not fattening, like donuts! Maybe offer a subscription, purchased in advance. What a nice holiday gift – the promise of a bouquet a month! In a downturn, flowers at a low price-point can be one of those

Despite the fact that sleep deprivation was not determined to be the reason for the failure to respond correctly to the threatening situations, it seem clear that the lack of dreams was the culprit. REM sleep may not only consist of dreaming, and it could be that depriving a rat of REM sleep will not only impact its energy level, but also its capacity for judgment, which may only to its mental dexterity and not to the manner in which dreams have impacted its awareness. REM sleep may have more significant consequences to the mental health that does not directly connect to dreaming.

    The Prime contractor was caught watering the Prime lawn and was fired by the Prime Minister because the Prime Minister know his contractor was watering the Prime lawn despite the Prime Wife telling the contractor to stop wasting water on grass.

One wonders if the Prime Minister would have fired the contractor or even noticed his grass was the greenest in the land if the Trinidad Express brought it to the attention.

  146. Hi Ellen, thanks for showing us that plant. I remember it from when we lived in PA, but I was young and toting four young ones everywhere. Your story was great and I searched for the photos of it. Beautiful.

    Thanks, Frances! Sadly, none of the photos I found even approached the beauty of the wandlike clusters I see here, though there were some good close-ups of the individual flowers. What a shame! really a stunning plant. One seeded in on the roadside here at Haven, and I got hugely excited, thinking maybe get a colony going here, but it disappeared—doubtless another victim of the mower. I recall ever seeing one in Tennessee, but maybe around and I just missed them.

As Katie has said, using the left handed scissors was always a good idea, but not all teachers would carry a pair in their classroom. I also think that left handers should be provided with the left handed notebooks. I am always having to wash my hands because my left hand covers over my writing and smears it. Although it is unrealiastic, I believe that left handed students should also be provided with special work books for the same reason, our work seems smeared becauseo ur hand covers what we have written. Great blog! I found it very interesting.

    I know so many people who have all the pillows they need and yet have trouble sleeping at night; they walk through their lives sleep deprived. What many don’t realize is that the Torah already told them why they can’t sleep.

  153. Todd,

    You mentioned that the parking lot would benefit families with young children. That makes no sense seeing at the Dept” is on the complete opposite end of the HPPC campus. This would also make me question the validity of re-doing Circle Drive.

    I just follow the logic of “creating safety for parents with young children.” Simply on the grounds that do you think an elderly couple is going to have those concerns when parking? Will they give up a coveted parking spot so a family with young children could park closer to the church? I most assuredly would say no.

    Again, while the plans seem exquisite and beautiful, the logic fails to go meet the demands for cause.

    Sincerely,

    ME

    By all means, if Harper want another Federal Election, I will because it is undemocratic for the three to make such a coalition. Also, since when did Harper lost the confidence of the people. Harper even release his Annual Budget for the up coming year. If the people of Canada did not vote for you to be the Prime Minister of Canada then so be it. Using tactic is undemocratic.

    I was very upset that CNN chose to cut off Prime Minister comments in the news conference to go to their own talk. You played all of the President of comments in both languages. Canada is the US biggest trading – supplies a great deal of your energy supplies and has the US in many of your world endeavours. We do not get a State dinner – but we do deserve to have our Prime Minisiter and his statements respected. It was a true statement of what CNN thinks of Canada – we are to be taken for granted. And you have many Canadian viewers who I am sure share my views.

    Now, you can appreciate a good day again. Not every single moment (I think a passage in Idiot where the protagonist talks about a guy who almost got hanged but got pardoned at the very last moment, then decided he was going to appreciate every single moment after that, but of course, because just not how wired), but the really good ones. And it sounds like you had a lovely birthday.

  165. There was a study recently published in the journal Science that claimed that people learn best if you teach the general, abstract information first. Of course, they used college students in their study, and they are capable enough of forming concrete images and examples to help themselves understand abstract material. Imagine what would happen if they tried this with first graders. The researchers claim they are going to try this with young children next, and if Piaget is right, it should be a huge disaster.

    Great advice for a problem that frequently plagues me. It is much easier to accomplish tasks or goals in bite-size pieces. One technique used by myself is to decide on a task/goal and set a timer for a period of time – usually an hour or 90 minutes. Then I plant myself in my chair and work only on the task or project allowing no interruptions (phone, email, etc.) for that 60 or 90 minutes. Then I take a break, check email and phone messages, and set a timer again. This really helps me keep myself on task.

  192. hey vojta,

    About the scar, you probably did that to yourself after REM sleep (where the fight most probably happened). REM sleep is when you are the most asleep and it is probably the hardest to wake up.

    I have had those embarrassing moments of wetting the bed some time ago as well, haha. What happens here, you can still wet the bed during REM sleep. In REM sleep your body is paralyzed, but if wondering why you can still wet yourself then the answer is the same of why you can still breathe during REM. You peeing is just the natural reaction from your brain to think that you are actually in front of the toilet peeing, so you do it in bed.

    Hope that clears it out ;D

  194. Hi. You are right that lying down is not a very good substitute for sleep, although it increases your chances of falling asleep. In order to feel rested, your body must enter the deepest stages of sleep (five total) and get plenty of REM sleep (rapid eye movement). REM occurs when you dream. Without REM sleep, nearly impossible to feel rested, even if you do sleep. Nyquil, some sleeping pills, and other alcohol will knock you out, so they can be better than nothing, but they also specifically suppress REM sleep. Therefore, best to get a good old-fashioned night of sleep if at all possible. not one to talk…I average about two hours per night.) I wish you a speedy recovery.
    Wow that is VERY interesting! Thanks, and thanks for dropping by!

  195. It's an interesting question, but even if you become a great photographer, you still, by chance, be that person who captures a single moment in time, a moment which becomes more than ANY amount of practice could have ever given you? Perhaps that practice gives you the eye and the patience, but in some cases, really being lucky, being in that right place at the right time.

    That makes photography more appealing, in my opinion. That chance, that one off chance you get to a moment and realize the full fruition of something beautiful and captured in a single moment of time, and you, the photographer, get to share that forever.

    Then again, I hate practice.

    Perhaps right — loving N enough. She probably knows you better than you do yourself, and in that knowledge realizes that you be changed. Sure you might be able to undergo some self-realization and make a conscious decision to change – but it would always be on your terms. They say that the best predictors of behavior are the ones from their pasts. I believe it, and when one comes to grips with it – you either learn to be happy with who a person is, or you give up and move on.

    The world is filled with so many amazing people and we deserve to be with the ones who make us happy. I hope you both find happiness and peace in your lives.

    this is the time for the Prime Minister to show his wisdom in resolving issues of this nation as a statesman. our country needs a strong and squeaky clean head of the executive NOT one who is tainted with blood in his hands even at the perception level.

    Mr. Prime Minister, you ask for the Malaysian to be a world class citizen. we have taken your challege. we, on the otherhand, ask of you to be a world class Prime Minister and stateman. Will you say your opinion on this Najib-Altantuya-Razak Baginda issue to us.

  209. I'm not left handed, but my mother and my brother are. I was reading a book once, about connecting with your right brain in order to better tap into talent, and it was saying that left-handed people still house their intelligence in their right brain, even though their left side is more dominant rather than their right. The only case where this is thought to be different (and people get to research this stuff too lol) is in the left-handed children of left-handed mothers. So i guess my brother has a backwards brain.

  215. Recently, optogenetics, which controls the activity of neuron using the light-activated protein, has been getting a lot of attention. This light-activated protein works like a switch of neurons by sensing specific color of light. This time, Associate Professor Akihiro YAMANAKA and Dr. Tomomi Tsunematsu from National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS), succeeded in suppressing only the activity of the orexin neurons in the mice’s brains (hypothalamus) when the optical switch was on, using the light-activated protein, halorhodopsin (eNpHR). This flipping on and off the optical switch led mice into sleep and wakefulness. Those mice fell into non-REM sleep (slow-wave sleep) only when the halorhodopsin-expressed orexin neurons were exposed to the light. It is in the Journal of Neuroscience published by the Society for Neuroscience in USA (July 20, 2011, Eastern Standard Time, USA) .

Still a lot of music files with non-english file name can not list correctly in ipod.

  224. i had that exact same problem with samantha and i think it was from caffeine. according to my older sister (with 4 kids), some babies have a hard time sustaining their sleep when transitioning into REM. you just have to let her cry, in other words, just train her to fall back to sleep on her own. the more you just pick her up when she wakes up after only 30 to 40 minutes (which is how long it takes for her to get to REM), the more tired she is throughout the day b/c not truly getting her rest by getting her REM sleep. hope this makes sense. feel free to give me a call if you want to talk about it more. and i LOVE my coffee, too!

    From our 11pm news, as last seen on the teleprompter: NEW RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT HAVING 4 COMMON BAD HABITS CAN AGE YOU BY 12 YEARS. THE BAD HABITS ARE SMOKING, DRINKING TOO MUCH, NOT GETTING ENOUGH…

    You know, the human learns more in the first 3 years of their life then they will the entire rest of their life. We learn to walk and talk and communicate and sing and rhyme and color and write and early reading like turning a page — and we learn to love ourselves… really. Have you ever seen a 2 year old who Or laugh aloud? Or show love unabashedly? Or show their emotions, whatever they may be? So much goes on in that first 3 years, almost baffling. Sometimes… I feel like in the first 3 years again.

  231. Associate Professor Akihiro YAMANAKA from National Institute for Physiological Sciences (NIPS), succeeded in suppressing only the activity of the orexin neurons in the mice’s brains (hypothalamus) when the optical switch was on, using the light-activated protein, halorhodopsin (eNpHR). Those mice fell into non-REM sleep (slow-wave sleep) only when the halorhodopsin-expressed orexin neurons were exposed to the light. It is in the Journal of Neuroscience published by the Society for Neuroscience.

    I think that young children should be given the possibility of choosing by themselves their own way of no matter what people expect from them. The main problem that we find nowadays is that people are (in a way) forcing their children to follow a kind of stereotype and this is what we should try to avoid in order not to loose their own personality.

    Yes…I actually tried writing both left handed and right handed. Right handed I had no trouble (other than the normal issue of not being right handed). As a lefty…I also tend to write a little more “upside down” (watch President Obama write for an understanding of that) and it just really work at all. Although writing more “normally” lefthanded caused the same problem. From a programming point of view it is probably harder to remove previous scribbles AND the wrist pressure than just wrist pressure and a blank area.

After some years she turned into the most enchanting, nice, intelligent creature you can imagine. And she has some magic in her eyes which is best expressed together with this special piece of music. As a clear sign of a creature with higher level intelligence, she is doing “REM rapid eye movement” while sleeping. Check this at my video http://www.youtube.com

  245. How can the PM of a country made a statement that corruption is a technical matter ?

    Then committing a murder or robbery or rape or fraud is also a technical matter ?

    The more issue is whether these murderers, robbers, rapists or fraudsters can be given a second chance to stand for public office ?

    If according to the logic, then a murderer can be a Prime Minister or a corrupt politician can be a Finance Minister or a robber can be a Home Affairs Minister. Syabas then to Malaysia.
    Welcome to Malaysia, Home of the Second Chancers.

    This is pure rubbish and can only come from the mouth of one who was one.

    My daughter fell so in love with her brown baby that she wanted some real live ones of her own. Today, years later, she does. She has three wonderful, beautiful brown boys and another is on the way.
