New Form Of Atomic Nuclei Just Confirmed, And it Suggests Time Travel is Impossible.

IN BRIEF

A group of scientists confirmed that there is a pear-shaped nucleus. Not only does this violate some laws in physics, but also suggests that time travel is not possible.

PEAR-SHAPED

A new form of atomic nuclei has been confirmed by scientists in a recent study published in the journal Physical Review Letters. The pear-shaped, asymmetrical nuclei, first observed in 2013 by researchers from CERN in the isotope Radium-224, is also present in the isotope Barium-144.

This is a monumental importance because most fundamental theories in physics are based on symmetry. This recent confirmation shows that it is possible to have a nuclei that has more mass on one side than the other. “This violates the theory of mirror symmetry and relates to the violation shown in the distribution of matter and antimatter in our Universe,” said Marcus Scheck of University of the West of Scotland, one of the authors of the study.

Until recently, there were three shapes of nuclei — spherical, discus, and rugby ball. There is a specific combination of protons and neutrons in a certain type of atom that dictates the shape formed by the distribution of charges within a nuclei. These three shapes are all symmetric and agree with the theory known as the CP-symmetry, the combination of charge and parity symmetry.

In the end, this could help us understand why our universe is the way that it is.As astrophysicist Brian Koberlein notes, “It’s been proposed that a violation of CP symmetry could have produced more matter than antimatter, but the currently known violations are not sufficient to produce the amount of matter we see. If there are other avenues of CP violation hidden within pear-shaped nuclei, they could explain this mystery after all.”

NO TIME TRAVEL?

This uneven distribution of mass and charge in the nuclei causes the isotope to ‘point’ in a certain direction in spacetime, and the team suggests that this could explain why time seems to to only go forward and not backward.

“We’ve found these nuclei literally point towards a direction in space. This relates to a direction in time, proving there’s a well-defined direction in time and we will always travel from past to present,” Marcus Scheck from the University of the West of Scotland told Kenneth MacDonald at BBC News.

That said, it is a rather speculative hypothesis, but it does raise some rather interesting avenues for investigation.

In the end, this recent discovery is another indication that the Universe might not be what we thought, which could propel us to a new era of theoretical physics.

We’re Getting Deliciously Close to Terabit Internet.

Nokia Bell Labs, Deutsche Telekom T-Labs and the Technical University of Munich have made some important strides towards extremely fast internet connections. The team says they have achieved “unprecedented transmission capacity,” at a rate of 1 terabit-per-second.

womp9temz3njo4csshcn

The terabit milestone is almost the “theoretical maximum information transfer rate” on a fiber link, the team said. That’s pretty fast! It was achieved by adjusting the transmission rates so that it “dynamically adapted to channel conditions and traffic demands.” Instead of just a straight drag race to see how fast they could crank up the data transfer speeds, this approach seems to use a more intelligent process in order to achieve the terabit speed at a sustainable scale.

Just to put that in perspective, a 1Tb connection allows the transfer of 125 gigabytes-per-second. So, in theory, with a terabit connection you could download 25 five-gigabyte movies in a single second. Researchers have achieved these super-fast speeds before, but the breakthrough here is that these speeds were achieved on a real network, meaning its less theoretical and much more possible we could see it deployed in the real world. Past milestones, like the 1.4Tb connection achieved in the UK a couple years ago, use multiple connections to achieve the blazingly fast speeds or happen in a controlled lab environment.

Terabit connections might not be coming to your house in the immediate future, but data service providers are going to need to cope with the eventual rollout of 5G wireless networks, which will allow smartphone users to use insane amounts of data. This breakthrough may help those data service providers dish out the massive amounts of bandwidth needed to service a 5G network.

Cómo vivían las personas comunes en diferentes países del mundo hace 20 años.

El famoso fotógrafo Peter Menzel, quien investiga cómo vive la gente alrededor del mundo, trabajó en el proyecto fotográfico: «Mundo material. Retrato familiar global» al principio de los años 90. Peter viajó por 30 países del mundo y, de acuerdo a los datos de UNESCO, buscaba las familias promedio: según el tamaño de su vivienda, ingresos e integrantes. Les pidió sacar todas sus pertenencias afuera y decir qué era lo más valioso para ellos en toda la casa.

Your Entire Immune System is Regenerated After Fasting for Only 3 Days.

A person’s entire immune system can be rejuvenated by fasting for as little as three days as it triggers the body to start producing new white blood cells, a study suggests.

Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as “remarkable”.

Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection.

Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy. It could also help the elderly whose immune system becomes less effective as they age, making it harder for them to fight off even common diseases.

The researchers say fasting “flips a regenerative switch” which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system.

“It gives the ‘OK’ for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system,” said Prof Valter Longo, Professor of Gerontology and the Biological Sciences at the University of California.

“And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting.

“Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.”

Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells. During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells. In trials, humans were asked to regularly fast for between two and four days over a six-month period.

Scientists found that prolonged fasting also reduced the enzyme PKA, which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth

“We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system,” added Prof Longo.

“When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” Dr Longo said.

“What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?”

Fasting for 72 hours also protected cancer patients against the toxic impact of chemotherapy

“While chemotherapy saves lives, it causes significant collateral damage to the immune system. The results of this study suggest that fasting may mitigate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy,” said co-author Tanya Dorff, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital.

“More clinical studies are needed, and any such dietary intervention should be undertaken only under the guidance of a physician.”

“We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system,” added Prof Longo.

7 morning rituals that are hard to adopt but will pay off forever.

At least that’s what a2009 University of Leipzig study found. The researchers concluded that “morning people were more proactive than evening types.”

But being an effective early riser isn’t just about waking up before everyone else. It’s about putting yourself in a positive mindset and getting important thingsdone before everyone else.

So there’s no point in setting your alarm clock at a crazy-early time if you’re just going to zone out in front of the television for a bit before slouching off to work.

To start your day right, you’ve got to get into some good habits.

Following are seven morning rituals that may seem hard to adopt but will ultimately reap major rewards, if you stick with them.

Make a plan the night before

This isn’t a morning ritual per se, but it’s a habit that’s definitely conducive to a productive morning routine. So make sure to set yourself up for a successful morning by creating a game plan the night before.

It’s always helpful to have everything you need for the day laid out and ready to go when you wake up. Make sure you’re stocked on whatever you need for breakfast. Write out a little schedule on what you need to accomplish the next day.

This all sounds pretty simple, but when you’re getting home at night, it’s very tempting to just crash on the sofa with a glass of wine and leave all the thinking for tomorrow.

Wake up painfully early
Sorry, night owls. It’s time to adapt.

In a poll of 20 executives cited by Laura Vanderkam, a time-management expert and the author of “What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast,” 90% said they wake up before 6 a.m. on weekdays. PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi, for example, wakes at 4 and is in the office no later than 7. Disney CEO Bob Iger gets up at 4:30 to read. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is up at 5:30 to go jogging.

Yes, this might sound awful, but if you get to sleep earlier, that’ll numb the pain of such early wake-ups over time. The bottom line: Productive mornings start with early wake-up calls.

Start the day right with exercise

Resultado de imagen para Start the day right with exercise
Yeah, there are super humans among us who crave that pre-sunrise workout (that, or they’re just really good liars). Still, for everyone else, waking up at the crack of dawn to sweat and get sore probably doesn’t sound ideal.

But the morning is probably the ideal time to exercise. By starting your day with exercise, you’ll prevent yourself from putting it off.

Think about it this way: If some of the busiest people in the world can find time to workout, so can you. For example, Vanderkam notes that Xerox CEO Ursula Burns schedules an hourlong personal-training session at 6 a.m. twice a week.

US President Barack Obama starts out each day with strength and cardio training while Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey does three repetitions of a seven-minute workout, Anisa Purbasari reported for Business Insider.

“These are incredibly busy people,” says Vanderkam. “If they make time to exercise, it must be important.”
Tackle your high-priority projects

The quiet hours of the morning can be the ideal time to focus on an important work project without being interrupted. What’s more, spending time on it at the beginning of the day ensures that it gets your attention before others — kids, employees, bosses — use it up.

Vanderkam uses the example of a business strategist who dealt with so many ad hoc meetings and interruptions throughout the day that she felt she couldn’t get anything done. She started thinking of the early mornings as project time, and chose a top-priority project each day to focus on. Sure enough, not a single colleague dropped in on her at 6:30 a.m. She could finally concentrate.

Work on your side hustle

Resultado de imagen para Work on your side hustle
Your side project is easy to skip when you’ve been in meetings all day, are tired and hungry, and have to figure out what’s for dinner. That’s why many successful people put in an hour or so on their personal projects before they officially start their days.

A history teacher at the University of Chicago told Vanderkam that she spent the hours between 6 and 9 working on a book about the religious politics of West Africa. She was able to read journal articles and write several pages before dealing with her teaching responsibilities.

By carving out the time in the morning to write, and making it a habit, she could follow through.

She’s not in bad company. According to the Telegraph, Ludwig Beethoven, John Milton, Kurt Vonnegut, Maya Angelou, and Victor Hugo all tackled their creative projects in the morning.

Have sex — or just talk to your partner

Resultado de imagen para Have sex — or just talk to your partner
In the evening, it’s more likely you’ll be tired from the day’s activities. That’s why many successful people make connecting with their partners a morning ritual.

Besides, Vanderkam wonders, what could be better than predawn sex to energize you for the day? After all, regular sex may make you smarter, boost your income, and burn calories.

Even if they’re not getting frisky every morning, many couples use the early hours to talk. For instance, she notes that a BlackRock executive and his wife commute from the suburbs into New York City every morning. They spend the hour-plus trip discussing their lives, finances, household to-do lists, and plans for the week.

Enjoy the silence

Life can get crazy. It’s often hard to find any moments to spare in your busy schedule. If you’re always rushing around in the morning, it’s difficult to imagine being able to spare any time to have a quiet moment.

But practicing mindfulness isn’t a waste of time. Try to reserve a few minutes for silent contemplation at the start of every day. You can use those peaceful moments to meditate, envision your future success, pray, or reflect on what you’re grateful for — whatever works for you. That short pause can put you in a great mindset for the rest of the day.

7 cosas que debes mantener en secreto para cumplir tus metas según la sabiduría hindú.

Todo lo que influye y afecta el rumbo en el que los seres humanos nos desenvolvemos está regido por nuestro pensamiento, por aquello que ha marcado nuestra vida y lo que hacemos para sobresalir ante el resto. Cada pueblo, tribu y civilización lo hace de diferente modo, en todas influye un pensamiento distinto que nos hace querer adoptar sus tradiciones y costumbres y si estamos inmersos en ello, buscamos a como dé lugar seguir los postulados.

Los griegos, por ejemplo, basaban su estructura política en las polis, la religión politeísta y una clase que se dedicaba al comercio y al ocio, siempre estimulando la curiosidad y la explicación de la verdad a través de los mitos y las tradiciones, el Imperio Romano adoptó sus costumbres y hasta sus dioses, pero cuando los cristianos llegaron y eligieron la adoración a seres supremos en lugar de la explicación lógica, el oscurantismo reinó en Europa.

Los indios, por otro lado, tiene una de las filosofías más perceptivas. Denominada darśana, busca la visión intuitiva e inmediata de la realidad. No ansían la verdad, sino que a partir de experiencias demandan una explicación sistemática para explicar el resto de la existencia humana. El espíritu es sumamente importante, pues lo ven como parte de una experiencia liberadora que condiciona el tiempo y el espacio.

sabiduria hindu
El conocimiento del ser supremo que traiga consigo la liberación es fundamental y la manera en la que la realidad puede vislumbrarse, uno de los postulados básicos para el equilibrio físico. Tanto la adoración a los dioses como aquello que influye en la vida del sujeto es primordial para entender esto.

El investigador Vyacheslav Ruzov profundizó exhaustivamente en la cultura india, los postulados del hinduismo y la manera en la que ellos conciben su vida a través de su sabiduría. Los hombres sabios de la India le dieron grandes consejos, entre ellos, sugerencias de lo que debes mantener en secreto para poder ser próspero en la vida y mantener siempre el misterio sobre ésta.

1. Los planes a futuro

Evitar hablar de estos hasta que sean un hecho para que así ya no sea sencillo golpearlas y destruirlas. Lo que anhelamos tiene grandes debilidades, espera hasta vislumbrarlas cercanas o serás víctima de lo que los demás creen que no lograrás.

planes a futuro sabiduria hindu

2. El misterio de tu caridad

Dar algo a los demás no es para presumir sino para considerarlo un tesoro único. Si alabas tus buenas obras, pronto serás arrogante y querrás el reconocimiento ajeno, pero cuando no lo consigas, te sentirás decepcionado. No hay nada mejor que guardarlo para sentir que hiciste una buena acción y nada más.

caridad sabiduria hindu

3. La austeridad

Ya sea la falta de dinero, de amor, de sueño, de descanso, cualquier cosa que consideres que te falta, porque a veces la austeridad también puede darte la armonía que necesitas.

austeridad sabiduria hindu

4. Heroísmo y valentía

Cada día todos nos enfrentamos a diferentes pruebas, tanto internas como externas. Muchas veces recibimos halagos por aquello que se ve, pero nadie recibe una palmada por todas aquellas barreras internas que se nos presentan. No hay sentido en alabar sólo lo exterior ni para el que lo recibe ni para el que lo hace, porque no sabemos cuántas personas han superado algo peor.

heroes sabiduria hindu

5. El conocimiento espiritual

Es algo completamente tuyo que no necesitas compartir con nadie. En casos realmente necesarios puedes revelarlo, ya sea que alguien más lo requiera o tú mismo, pero no en alguna otra circunstancia.
meditar sabiduria hindu

6. Conflictos de hogar y familiares

Tal vez este sea uno de los puntos más importantes. Mientras menos hables de los problemas de tu familia, más fuerte y estable puede ser. Esas discusiones funcionan para deshacerte de la energía negativa, pero si hablas de ellas con alguien más, creerás en ellas con más intensidad.

discuti sabiduria hindu

7. Las cosas negativas que alguien más dijo

Es como llevar lodo a tu casa. Si lo escuchaste y es malo, es mejor dejarlo de lado y seguir con tu vida, llevar los problemas ajenos son una carga que no necesitas. Si en tu oficina o escuela también escuchas hablar mal de alguien, no lo comentes, puedes convertirte en la persona que esparció el rumor.

hablar mal sabiduria hindu

A veces el silencio es el mejor aliado, el compañero de las batallas ganadas y de los consejos más sabios. Los libros de Jaime Sabines te permitirán sentir el silencio más insoportable.
