Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes’.”

People who remember their dreams show different brain activity.
A 2014 study found more spontaneous activity in a part of the brain called the temporo-parietal junction among people who regularly recall their dreams, compared with people who rarely do. The differences weren't just during sleep, but also while study participants were awake. Previous research found that people who remember more dreams also react more to sounds during sleep (and while awake) than people who don't remember many dreams.

Your dreams aren't weird, that is, until you call them weird.
"When you're having the dream, no matter how 'weird' it is -- you're in a poker game with a giant green squirrel and Queen Mary -- it's not weird," says Naiman. "It's only after you wake up and step into the waking world and look at the dream that it seems weird." Comparing "weird" in the dreaming and waking worlds is like comparing dietary customs in two w…
Gritty kids who succeed do so in spite, not because of, the education system. They follow the path they love. Kids know what they love even when they can't articulate it in some cognitive/symbolic way that makes sense to adults. The problem is that kids just don't want to go and do what/where we think they ought to. Teaching and learning are FAR more than "small class size" -- closer to one on one, and THAT is "too expensive" for an increasingly hyper-conservative, top-down control oriented system. Freeing up the little buggars to chase their curiosities, then selectively providing them with the tools they need at the time they need them? Boy is that a scary notion to all those folks who want to get rid of Darwin and science, let alone art. Sir Ken is spot on.

It's the system, not something missing in the kids.

The passion or determination to continue learning is not the same as the 'grit' to achieve. There is no obvious means t…

The Essential Habits Of Mentally Strong People


The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment."  

"In a world that we don't control, tolerance is obviously an asset," Ryan Holiday, author of the forthcoming The Obstacle Is The Way, told The Huffington Post. "But the ability to find energy and power from what we don't control is an immense competitive advantage."

There's a maxim in the ancient philosophy of Stoicism, "There is no good or bad, there is only perception," which was later echoed in Shakespeare's famous line, "There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."
The way we perceive a situation has a tremendous power to either help or harm us. So often, we react emotionally and project negative judgments onto a situation, when the first key t…

Conscious Capitalism; think

I know a lot of you, including myself, want to make the best impact on the world as possible and help change it for the better. That abstract and vague goal is hard to put into practice though. What do we do? Buy local, organic produce? Volunteer at a soup kitchen? Help an old lady across the street? All of these are great ways to help make your community united, healthier, and a more loving and nurturing environment for everyone involved, but are they enough? All these practices are fantastic and I don’t discount them as vital to our local community, but in addition what can we do to help our extended community? What can we do to help the human community all over this magnificent planet?

I usually see mentions of Capitalism in a context similar to homophobia, racism, etc. ; it is hated and looked down upon. I do not deny that the way Capitalism has evolved is detrimental to just about every living being on this planet. All you have to do is open your eyes and you will se…

Korejsko pismo

korejsko pismo, slovno pismo korejskoga jezika. Upotrebljava se sámo ili u kombinaciji sa znakovima kin. podrijetla koji služe za zapisivanje cijelih riječi ili osnova. Do konca VII. st. u Koreji se pisalo samo kin. pismom i jezikom. God. 692. načinjeno je od kin. znakova slogovno pismo. Oko 1400. izumljen je tisak s pokretnim slovima, pa je načinjeno jednostavnije, današnje slovno pismo, u kojem su posebni znakovi za suglasnike i posebni za samoglasnike. Po predaji 1446. načinio ga je kralj Sedžon. Vjerojatno je da se za načela ugledao na mongolsko pismo galik, koje je također slovno. Izgled slova je proizvoljan, temelji se na jednostavnim geometrijskim elementima. Za način kombiniranja slova uzor je u kin. pisanju. (iz proleksis enciklopedije)
Hangul je korejsko pismo. Početnicima izgleda zastrašujuće jer ih podsjeća na kin…

Ljubičasta boja (feng shui) Mješavina crvene i plave, ljubičasta spaja dvije potpune suprotnosti, vatru i vodu po feng shui teoriji. Nijansa i naš osobni osjećaj određuju kojoj strani više naginje, no nikada nismo potpuno sigurni. Ovo je boja uravnoteženosti i duhovnosti. Pomaže pri sređivanju zbrkanih odnosa, a u ljubavnim vezama pomaže kod ponovne podjele uloga. Ljubičasta boja u svojim tamnijim nijansama djeluje pročišćavajuće i pomaže pri mršavljenju. Na duhovnoj razini otvara nas za nova stanja svijesti i nove spoznaje. U prevelikoj količini stvara distanciranost i odvojenost od drugih. Svijetlo ljubičasta, zbog veće količine bijele, djeluje lagano i živahno. Stoga je uglavnom i pogodnija za dekoraciju životnog prostora od tamnoljubičaste. Prevelika količina svijetlo ljubičaste može nas previše odvojiti od realnosti i učiniti nas nepostojanima. Nemojte se okruživati ljubičastom u bilo kojoj nijansi, ako vam nije posebno draga.

Kua broj


Znamo da Feng Shui dijeli sektore na četiri glavna (istok, jug, zapad, sjever) i četiri sporedna (jugoistok, jugozapad, sjeverozapad, sjeveroistok). No svaki od ukupno osam pravaca (četiri glavna i četiri sporedna) dodatno se dijeli na po tri podpravca, što ukupno čini 24. To su takozvane 24 Planine u feng shui-u, a svrha im je točno određivanje glavnog pravca doma u svrhu točnog postavljanja Lo Shu kvadrata na tlocrt i/ili izračuna Letećih zvijezda.

Pathophysyology of rosacea

Patients with rosacea have elevated levels of cathelicidin and elevated levels of stratum corneum tryptic enzymes (SCTEs). Antibiotics have been used in the past to treat rosacea, but antibiotics may only work because they inhibit some SCTEs.

Higher levels of human cathelicidin antimicrobial protein (hCAP18), which are up-regulated by vitamin D, appear to significantly reduce the risk of death from infection in dialysis patients. Patients with a high level of this protein were 3.7 times more likely to survive kidney dialysis for a year without a fatal infection.

Vitamin D up-regulates genetic expression of cathelicidin, which exhibits broad-spectrum microbicidal activity against bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Cathelicidin rapidly destroys the lipoprotein membranes of microbes enveloped in phagosomes after fusion with lysosomes in macrophages.

Kallikrein-related peptidase 5 (KLK5), formerly known as stratum corneum tryptic enzyme (SCTE), is a serine protease expressed in the epidermis. …

Krvna grupa 0 (prehrana)


Svaka osoba krvne grupe 0 nosi genetsko pamćenje snage, izdržljivosti, samoprijegora, odvažnosti, intuicije i urođenog optimizma. Prvi ljudi krvne grupe O bili su oličenje oštrine, akcije i jakog osjećaja za samoodržanje. Vjerovali su u sebe, što je dobro, u protivnom nas ne bi bilo. Ako ste krvne grupe O, bilo bi dobro da cijenite to naslijeđe, jer sve ono što vas čini zdravim, što vas nadahnjuje i što vam daje energiju slično je onome što je na isti način djelovalo na vaše davne pretke. Vi ste izdržljivi i snažni, pokreće vas visokokalorična hrana. najbolje reagirate na jaku fizičku aktivnost, ustvari, kad je nemate, postajete deprimirani, malodušni i gojazni. Možda ste naslijedili i poriv za uspjehom, kao i osobine vođe tipične za krvnu grupu 0 - jaka, sigurna, moćna osoba koja puca od zdravlja i optimizma.
