Is that like staring out the window at nothing in particular? I've done that for a long time and I'm pretty darned good at it.

In other news, not related to rapiers of any spelling, the following is of scientific interest in the eternal "body-spirit-mind" triangle debate:

"People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don't. Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input.

In one area of gray matter, the thickening turns out to be more pronounced in older than in younger people. That's intriguing because those sections of the human cortex, or thinking cap, normally get thinner as we age.

"Our data suggest that meditation practice can promote cortical plasticity in adults in areas important for cognitive and emotional processing and well-being," says Sara Lazar, leader of the study and a psychologist at Harvard Medical School. "These findings are consistent with other studies that demonstrated increased thickness of music areas in the brains of musicians, and visual and motor areas in the brains of jugglers. In other words, the structure of an adult brain can change in response to repeated practice."

The researchers compared brain scans of 20 experienced meditators with those of 15 nonmeditators. Four of the former taught meditation or yoga, but they were not monks living in seclusion. The rest worked in careers such as law, health care, and journalism. All the participants were white. During scanning, the meditators meditated; the others just relaxed and thought about whatever they wanted.

Meditators did Buddhist "insight meditation," which focuses on whatever is there, like noise or body sensations. It doesn't involve "om," other mantras, or chanting.

"The goal is to pay attention to sensory experience, rather than to your thoughts about the sensory experience," Lazar explains. "For example, if you suddenly hear a noise, you just listen to it rather than thinking about it. If your leg falls asleep, you just notice the physical sensations. If nothing is there, you pay attention to your breathing." Successful meditators get used to not thinking or elaborating things in their mind.

Study participants meditated an average of about 40 minutes a day. Some had been doing it for only a year, others for decades. Depth of the meditation was measured by the slowing of breathing rates. Those most deeply involved in the meditation showed the greatest changes in brain structure. "This strongly suggests," Lazar concludes, "that the differences in brain structure were caused by the meditation, rather than that differences in brain thickness got them into meditation in the first place."

We used to heat C rations by opening the can, propping it on a three rocks or over a small hole, and lighting a small chunk of C-4 explosive under it. You had to be careful just to use a pinch of C-4 or the heat would ruin your fine gourmet meal of ham-and-eggs.

This could be important. (From PhysOrg.com's newsletter, which I subscribe to solely for the purpose of finding things to add to MOAB....)

"A team of researchers from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Purdue University, and the Russian Academy of Sciences has used sound waves to induce nuclear fusion without the need for an external neutron source, according to a paper in the Jan. 27 issue of Physical Review Letters.

The results address one of the most prominent questions raised after publication of the team's earlier results in 2004, suggesting that "sonofusion" may be a viable approach to producing neutrons for a variety of applications.

By bombarding a special mixture of acetone and benzene with oscillating sound waves, the researchers caused bubbles in the mixture to expand and then violently collapse. This technique, which has been dubbed "sonofusion," produces a shock wave that has the potential to fuse nuclei together, according to the team.

The telltale sign that fusion has occurred is the production of neutrons. Earlier experiments were criticized because the researchers used an external neutron source to produce the bubbles, and some have suggested that the neutrons detected as evidence of fusion might have been left over from this external source.

"To address the concern about the use of an external neutron source, we found a different way to run the experiment," says Richard T. Lahey Jr., the Edward E. Hood Professor of Engineering at Rensselaer and coauthor of the paper. "The main difference here is that we are not using an external neutron source to kick the whole thing off."

In the new setup, the researchers dissolved natural uranium in the solution, which produces bubbles through radioactive decay. "This completely obviates the need to use an external neutron source, resolving any lingering confusion associated with the possible influence of external neutrons," says Robert Block, professor emeritus of nuclear engineering at Rensselaer and also an author of the paper.

The experiment was specifically designed to address a fundamental research question, not to make a device that would be capable of producing energy, Block says. At this stage the new device uses much more energy than it releases, but it could prove to be an inexpensive and portable source of neutrons for sensing and imaging applications. "




Why, you may well ask, could this be important?

If you can create fusion by peppering certain fluids with ultrasound, which causes the mysterious cavitation and explosions at a molecular level and also generates the strange nergy coherent pattern known as sonoluminescence, you may be on the brink of the next major energy solution.

It is my considered opinion that in all of technology land there is no task more important than developing an affordable, renewable or at least minimally depleting, home generator that will be smaller than a washing machine and provide all the power a home needs for domestic and transportation needs.

If it has to be nuclear, then let it be fusion.

Fact of the Day: pancake

The oldest surviving pancake recipe in the English language dates from the 15th century. It describes a thin flat cake of batter, fried on both sides in a pan and usually served either flat or with several stacked. Blin (as in blini and blintze) is Russian for 'pancake' and blintz(e) is from Russian blinets 'little pancake.' 'Cake itself first meant 'small flat bread roll baked on both sides by being turned - as in pancake.

Added is my own personal receipe for Johnny Cakes: Most probley from the ole magizine "Practical Survival"

Oh, and there's a second punchline. The ex, told of this response, came up with a great one-liner. It was evening when this happened, and he said she was probably afraid she'd get the name wrong, that she might call it "Eine nine-o'clock music". . .

(Then there was the one while we were in the theater watching the Superman movie with the Lana Lang picnic and the boy and his dog had strayed into the corn field. . . and the combines are looming and the theater is silent and he leans over and whispers in my ear "it's the grim reaper. . .

I called the funky little NPR station (at Fort Hood, Texas) and pointed out that this piece is commonly called "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik." The twit who answered the phone said she'd seen that on the LP cover, but "I didn't think anyone would know it by that name." . . .

FACT of the Day:    MOZART

Mozarts full name was Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. Despite his success, he died poor and his grave is unmarked.
By age six, Mozart was composing and performing music and his father,
was noted composer and violinist. In 1782, Mozart married the sister of the woman he had unsuccessfully courted several years earlier.

SOME Holidays:

United Kingdom: Holocaust Memorial Day
Germany: Day of Remembrance for victims of Nazism

EVENTS:

1785 - The first state-chartered school, the University of Georgia, was incorporated.

1825 - Congress approved Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma), clearing the way for forced relocation of the Eastern Indians on the "Trail of Tears."

1862 - President Abraham Lincoln issued General War Order No. 1, setting in motion the Union Armies.

      And Just a thought thats perhaps is speuing out the other end.
Based on the out come of "YANKEE IMPERIALISM" some 150 years later.

Perhaps his assassination was too late and the wrong side won the war.
For what can be freed that one doesnt own. And why make it appear so when in reality all were inslaved. Hence the "Workforce"
Dont know but something tells me he was republican.
Just a observation of the uneducated variety.
Yes i know Chruchill said.
"Best let others think you as a fool, rather than opening ones mouth and removing all doubt. But i said just an observation. Wounder what the "Cherry tree thought"?

1880 - Thomas Edison received a patent for his electric incandescent lamp.
1888 - The National Geographic Society was incorportated in Washington D.C.
1924 - Vladimir Lenin's body was laid in a marble tomb on Red Square near the Kremlin.
1926 - John Logie Baird, a Scottish inventor, gave the first public demonstation of a true television system, in London.
1945 - Soviet trooops liberated the Nazi concentration camps "Auschwitz and "Birkenau" in Poland.
1951 - The era of atomic testing in "Nevada's desert began as an "Air Force plane dropped a one-kiloyon bomb on Frenchman Flats.
1973 - The "Vietnam" peace accords were signed in Paris. The U.S. military draft ended.
1975 - The Senate began an investigation of activities by the FBI and the CIA (On November 20, the committee released its report, charging both U.S. goverment agencies with illegal activities.)

Sorry for the length but one must admit its been "One hell of a day"

And the commits about Lincoln are obscure observations and some patriots will say. That every President since then (Except J.F.K)
was previously groomed for that position> Hencefourth The beginning of the evolution of Rothchilds plan of world domination. aka "The New World Order" aka "Big Brother".

Leaving the question: Are the sheep any closer to slatter?

kindaloupehackenweez aka enigma?????? One hell of a day in History.

Now, ya see, these days we don't dig them postholes. Nossirree! We just does one of two things. The first is that we git Little Davey ta come round. We show him where we want the holes, and Little Davey punches one with his bare fist. We pay him fifty cents fer each hole, and they's allas deep enough cuz Little Davey's arms are six feet long. Don't hurt him none to do it, neither, cuz of his knuckles dragging on the ground all the time has built him up one BIG set of calluses. We call him "Little Davey" seeing as how he's only four feet xix inches tall.

And the second way is a bit more wasteful but a helluva a lot of fun. We jist scoops the dirt down to rock, pile some unwrapped dynamite on it, sandbag the dynamite real good, shove in a blasting cap and some fuse, light the fuse, and run like hell. Works great. One time Stinky got aholt of some stuff called "cratering charges" from the Army Surplus store in Dunn. Suckers were pretty heavy -- musta weighted fifty pounds or so each. Anyway, Stinky figgered that iffen they could blast holes in concrete like he'd heard they could they'd be good for makin' postholes. He sat up about six or eight of 'em in a row, right where he wanted the holes, stuck the caps and fuses in, and lit the fuses. Only what he didn't know was how powerful them Army explosives were. They blasted a line of holes better'n six foot deep in a line where the craters overlapped each other. Then the bottom fell out, cuz Stinky had blown them off over some kinda fault or somethin'. Anyway, everything started fallin' in, and right soon all that was left was a hole that looks like this. nowadays.

Ol' Sol, him that usta break the horses out on the Rockin' Lazy J, he was one tough hombre and would jist ram them fenceposts inta the ground every thirteen feet or so. He made one straight fence line, too. But after Mary Mountain caved in on him he warn't in no shape ta do it anymore. Shucks, after that woman got aholt of him he was like a little baby.

Conger Cuddling

A form of bowling where the pins are human beings. A varying number of participants stand on upturned flower pots approximately 3 to 10 feet away from a dangling length of rope. Tied to the end of the rope should be a 5 foot conger eel, and the aim is to knock the humans off their perches by swinging the eel at them. Each player has a pre-arranged number of attempts and points are scored according to the number of people knocked off their pots. Once everyone has swung the teams change places. Occasionally a suitable conger eel can't be found: in these circumstances it's permissible to use a suitable alternative fish of a similar size.

You have to put a layer below the insulation, so it doesn't filter down into the living spaces, especially if it is fiberglass insulation, not fun to breathe.

And in other news, a clue to the evolutionary underpinnings of sexism, swords, and other febrile obsessions:

Emma Johnston of the University of New South Wales said the creature -- named Imogine lateotentare -- is one of the simplest organisms known, but its behavior is quite complex, the Sydney Morning Herald reported Friday.

Johnston and colleagues Ka-Man Lee and Michel Beal have kept the organism -- found in Sydney's Botany Bay -- in captivity in the laboratory for up to a fortnight, watching as its attacked prey.

The creatures have both male and female parts and engaged in a sexual practice somewhat like penis fencing.

To reproduce they try to stab each other with their genitals and the first to penetrate inserts sperm and then goes on to spar with another flatworm. The "loser" lays and broods the eggs.

The findings are published in the Journal of Natural History.




Says a lot, in neo-Darwinian terms. A confusion, perhaps, about the meaning of the word "win"?
