Improve Memory Senses While We Sleep

Improve Memory SensesThe scientists are now more and more focused on the ability to improve memory senses when we sleep. Several years ago, scientists reported that the smell of fragrance during sleep can improve the brain's ability in storing new memories.

A recent study conducted by experts found that sound is played some major parts when we sleep and has an effect similar to that fragrance which can improve memory senses.

In a research done by John D. Rudoy from Northwestern University it was noted that respondents that the sound is played during their sleep have a better memory for new things, although the respondents do not remember what voices they had heard.

However, Rudoy is no rush to conclude that the result of this research shows that stimulation done during sleep is better for the learning process than when it was done when we are awake.

According to Howard Eichenbaum, Ph.D., chairman of the Center for Memory and Brain, of Boston, when humans sleep, the brain will reconstruct the stimulus that was accepted into the memory and voices or sounds that played may trigger certain memories so that we are so much easier to remember.

2012: Sun and the Doomsday

DoomsdayWhen listening to the discussion about the so-called doomsday 2012 based on the Mayan calendar system, there are interesting topics around the Sun. Among others mentioned, in the year 2012 activities of the Sun, which has started since a few billion years, will reach its peak. In addition, the Sun and the Earth will be in line with a dark hallway in the center of the Milky Way galaxy.

Of course, the Sun is very central to the Solar System, especially the Earth and life in biosphere. If there is increased activity there, the Earth would be subject to influence. However, the Sun's regular cycle of activity which is every 11-year, this circle is there for more than four billion years and so far is fine.

Now, along with the proliferation of books about the doomsday in 2012, also Hollywood movies about the same theme, not only from the Maya calendar issue, but also from the astronomy site, it was easy to understand then the astronomical experts start to make statements too. This is because the news spread a lot mentioned 2012 Doomsday celestial bodies, as it can strengthen their scenarios.

In fact, the basic scenario itself, the Mayan calendar, does not differ much with the modern calendar. If the Mayan calendar has many long cycles with such diverse, we also have something similar. So, if the Mayan calendar will end on December 21, 2012, it could happen to us as of December 31, 1999. The next day after that date, which is January 1, 2000, will begin a new cycle, whether it is based on days, years, decades, centuries or millennia. As we have seen, the end of various cycles on December 31, 1999 was not accompanied by the end of the world, isn’t it?

How about the connection between Earth, the Sun, and the center of the Milky Way galaxy? Many have expressed their thoughts that when all these objects are paired together will lead the force that will trigger devastating earthquake to finish history of the world. The same style plug will also trigger a solar storm that will destroy the Earth. In fact, to add effect, the planets will line up also called on December 21, 2012.

Apparently, after a thorough examination, the Sun will not cover (eclipse) the center of the galaxy. Even if the Sun could cover the galactic center, the effect of pairs can be ignored, writes Paul A Heckert as quoted at the beginning of this post.

With that explanation, 2012 Doomsday scenarios do not need to be taken seriously.

Based on the theory of evolution (birth and death) star, where the Sun is one of them, the Sun is about five billion years from now will expand into a red giant star that will fry the Earth. However, not five-billion-year time period is still very, very long time for the measure of a man?

However, for practical reason, such as to determine the relationship between the solar activity and communication disorders, or to learn more about the properties of the Sun, the study of the Sun is still important.

Surfing in cyberspace can improve brain ability

Surfing in cyberspace can improve brain abilitySurfing in cyberspace (the internet) can improve brain function and minimize the possibility of memory losses. This is at least proved after a research was conducted, 24 adults aged 50 years and over were involved. This study was performed by the psychiatrist and researcher neural research team of University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), it shows that the use of the Internet in old people can improve their cognitive function.

National Geographic News site and the Daily Telegraph in one of their October publications have quoted the results of the study said that the UCLA team compared 24 adults aged 55-78 years who had never opened the internet with those who had never missed a day surfing in cyberspace. Result shows there is an increased activity of the brain part that responsible for handling the memory and make decisions. "Hence, opening sites on the internet can be an easy way to train the brain," said senior researcher Teena D Moody.

This research volunteers were asked to open the Internet at home for four hours each day. Not just randomly open any site, but specifically using search engines and answering questions on various topics in various sites. One week later the volunteers were examined and the results showed there was an increased brain activity in areas related to the ability to use language, visual, memory, and reading.

Director of the Royal Institution Susan Greenfield said that the social networking sites on the Internet are the main causes of the lack of concentration in children nowadays. She also blamed the text message as the cause of increase in attention deficit disorders in children these days.

Credit and debt consolidation

We heard over the news in almost every media that banks are closed just years ago, the condition is not fully recovered yet, although according to some experts the worst part has passed already but there are still so much home works for government over many countries to do the economic recovery.

Now we turn to micro economy where household is part of the system. According to reliable sources, many households could not survive this hard economic situation, and doubt amount is mounting up, many left unsettled. This is the time people turn to one popular approach which is debt consolidation to manage their unsettled debts.

Survey found that most households have more than one debt, from the most common debt like credit card, home loan, to business loan; many households during the near recession period could not pay their debts on time and some are even worst, they couldn’t pay at all. So what is debt consolidation?

It is a procedure where borrowers renegotiate their unsettled debts or troubled debts with their banks or any other financial institutions and consolidate them into one new debt with one combined principle, new payment schedule and new interest rate. By this way, borrowers are less complicated when it comes to payment of debts, as he or she has no longer deal with several debts which usually come with several due dates, as this new consolidated debt is in form of one debt only.

Consolidate debt approach has become one successful tool where so many people have finally returned to their financial freedom, but it is only a tool, borrowers are still the ones who have to take in charge and need to settle the new consolidated loan. But with self discipline and consistency, you are heading to the right way to gain back your financial freedom. For more information about debt consolidation, just visit 3debtconsolidation.com.

Five Effective Relaxation Methods for Restful Sleep

Whatever the reasons specific to the individual, relaxation techniques are a great method of setting your mind at rest for long enough that you can drift into a regenerating and soothing night of sleep. This article looks at 5 effective relaxation methods and discusses the merits of each one.

Counting Sheep / Mental Distraction: The most famous of the counting techniques in sleep relaxation involves counting sheep - usually as they jump over a gate. This is actually one of several related ideas which come under the broad heading of 'engaging your mind'. The idea is that you focus on counting to stop thinking about any of your worries or concerns while you fall asleep.

Abdominal (Deep) Breathing Techniques: Deep breathing can lead to relaxing yourself to sleep very quickly. Like many of the relaxing methods, this can work even better when combining the physical side (the deep breathing) with purely mental treatments such as counting or imagery. With 'Abdoninal Breathing' The focus is on breathing progressively deeper and slower, with the ultimate goal being to draw air downwards towards your abdomen. Those who try this find that it is extremely relaxing and can result falling alseep fast.

Progressive Muscle Relaxation Techniques: Another physical relaxation technique, this can also be completed at the same time as mental distraction or visual imagery. The idea is that you tense and then very slowly relax the muscle groups starting at the feet and slowly working your way upward. Controlled slow and deep breathing is required and the process itself involves a certain amount of focus - thus preventing distractions due to a 'busy mind'.

Visual Imagery Techniques: These can be thought of as a more advanced variation of the 'mental distraction' sleeping technique as described above. The idea is to utilize the power of your own imagination - letting your mind wander to tranquil scenes at the same time as relaxing the body. While common choices include beaches and waterfalls, each individual is free to choose their own visual imagery, making this idea entertaining as well as conducive to sound sleep.

Meditation: Mediation is really the opposite of the imagery technique, since it involves 'clearing your mind' of all possible thoughts and mental images. When performed alongside other breathing and relaxing techniques, meditation is a powerful method of falling asleep for those who have been properly trained in how to achieve this tranquil state.


The Best Diet for Life

The Mediterranean diet is among the most highly recommended eating plans. But which of its components brings the biggest benefits? In a recent study in the British Medical Journal, researchers tracked 23,000 adults in Greece.

They found that eating a lot of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and legumes (like beans and peas) had the greatest impact on increasing longevity. Also associated with a longer lifespan: consuming moderate amounts of alcohol and less meat. Surprisingly, a high intake of cereals and seafood had little to no positive effect.

In related research, a study in the Archives of Neurology showed that the Mediterranean diet reduced people’s risk of experiencing dementia or of its progressing.

In a group of adults with no dementia symptoms at the study’s start, those who most closely adhered to the Mediterranean diet had a 28% lower risk of developing cognitive impairment. In a group that already had impairment, the people who best followed the plan had a 48% lower risk of getting full-blown Alzheimer’s disease.


'District 9' lifts off with No. 1 weekend at $37M

District 9, the Sony release produced by "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson led the weekend with a $37 million debut, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"District 9" is the debut feature from commercial and music-video director Neill Blomkamp, who co-wrote the tale about extraterrestrials forced by humans to live in squalor in a ghetto in South Africa.

The movie built audience interest with a clever marketing campaign playing up the theme of prejudice against aliens, including posters instructing citizens to report non-humans and ads on bus benches stating that the seats are for humans only.

"Everybody was like, 'What is this?' There was a big question mark in people's minds," said Rory Bruer, head of distribution for Sony. "It did really pique their interest and drove them to the Internet and elsewhere to discover what's going on."

3 trillionBus fare in Zimbabwe

A woman pays her bus fare with 3 trillion in old Zimbabwe dollars — the equivalent of 50 U.S. cents. The collector accepts the brick of neatly folded bundles of a trillion each without bothering to count the notes.

"No one seems to worry, and it works," said the woman, Lucy Denya, a Harare secretary who says she's seen police officers using old notes to board buses.

The Zimbabwe dollar is officially dead. It was killed off in hopes of curbing record world inflation of billions of percentage points, and Zimbabwe has replaced it with the U.S. dollar and the South African rand.

Yet the role of the old Zimdollar, as it is known, remains in flux. It is still used, and has become another point of contention for the divided leadership of the country, now one of the poorest in the world.

President Robert Mugabe has called for the return of the Zimdollar as legal tender, complaining that most Zimbabweans lack the hard currency needed to buy basic goods. The central bank under governor Gideon Gono, a Mugabe loyalist, has acknowledged printing extra local money to fund government spending that fueled inflation.

But Finance Minister Tendai Biti, who joined the government as part of a power-sharing agreement between his Movement for Democratic Change and Mugabe's ZANU-PF party, has declared the local dollar indefinitely obsolete. He has threatened to quit if a return to the local currency is forced upon him.

Super-chic Makeover of Susan Boyle

Remember back in April when it seemed like the whole world had Susan Boyle fever? When every news outlet you turned to was practically shouting her praises and the 47-year-old "Britain’s Got Talent" star was being exalted for her unpretentious persona and angelic voice?

Next came the speculation: Would she or wouldn’t she get a makeover? A new jacket for Susan! Today she’s wearing a designer scarf! OMG, are those new eyebrows?! But then things took a turn. After weeks of constant and increasingly nasty media attention, the Scottish singer needed a break.

And, directly after coming in second place in the "Britain's Got Talent" finale, Boyle checked herself into a clinic for exhaustion and kept a low profile. Now she's stepping back into the spotlight in a big way.

Best Buy $9.99 TV offer was too good to be true

Few if any of the deals retailers have offered online during the recession have been as good as Best Buy Inc.'s sale price of $9.99 on a 52-inch TV Wednesday. But it quickly turned out the offer was too good to be true.

The electronics retailer said it will not honor the $9.99 price posted Wednesday morning on its Web site for a 52-inch Samsung flat-screen TV. By early afternoon, the TV was listed at $1,799.99, almost half off the original $3,399.99 price.

Beckham Guest Judges in Abdul's Place

Victoria Beckham was on hand Friday for the first round of "American Idol" auditions in the post-Paula Abdul era. The former Spice Girl arrived at a downtown Denver hotel where call-back auditions were being held as scores of onlookers crowded against rope barriers, many snapping photos.

Fox, which airs the popular singing show, said Beckham and Katy Perry would be guest judges in Abdul's place. But it wasn't immediately clear whether Beckham did any judging Friday, and "Idol" spokeswoman Alex Gillespie declined to say what her role was. Perry was nowhere to be seen.

Abdul announced this week she was leaving "Idol" after eight seasons. She would not discuss details about her "Idol" exit Thursday in a phone interview, nor would she address whether the door was still open

Mirror, Mirror on the iPhone, for Free

Mirror, Mirror on the iPhoneInner Four Inc., a Tampa, Fla., company that has 150 programs in Apple's App Store, usually devotes a couple of months to create a major app. But its biggest success so far has been one that one engineer spent just one hour on.

The ad-supported free app, called Mirror Free, is essentially a black empty screen framed by a picture frame. If a user peers closely into it, the reflection off the screen can create an effect like a mirror. By Inner Four co-founder John Swartz's own admission the app “doesn't do anything.” But the app has been a breakaway hit, dominating the top spot in the App Store's free app rankings for the better part of last week.

Mirror Free isn't the first joke app to become popular on the App Store. In the past, apps like iBeer, in which users can brew and drink a virtual glass of beer, and iFart, which does what one might expect, have taken the spotlight.

Finally married 16 years after drifted apart

A British man and his Spanish former sweetheart have finally married 16 years after they drifted apart, reunited by a love letter lost behind a fireplace for over a decade. Steve Smith and Carmen Ruiz-Perez, both now 42, fell in love 17 years ago when she was a foreign exchange student in Brixham, southwest England, and got engaged after only a year together.

But their relationship ended after she moved France to run a shop in Paris. A few years later, in a bid to rekindle their love, Smith sent a letter to her mother's home in Spain. It was placed on the mantelpiece, but slipped down behind the fireplace and was lost for over a decade.

The missing missive was only found when builders removed the fireplace during renovation work.

"When I got the letter I didn't phone Steve right away because I was so nervous," Ruiz-Perez told the Herald Express local newspaper.
"I nearly didn't phone him at all. I kept picking up the phone then putting it down again.
"But I knew I had to make the call."

When they were reunited, it was as if time had stood still, said Smith, a factory supervisor.

"When we met again it was like a film. We ran across the airport into each other's arms. We met up and fell in love all over again. Within 30 seconds of setting eyes on each other we were kissing.
"I'm just glad the letter did eventually end up where it was supposed to be," he said, after the couple married.

21st century's longest eclipse over the Asia sky

21st century's longest eclipseTotal eclipse of the sun starts on July 21 will appear to be the longest eclipse over the Asia sky in the 21st century, the eclipse will appear first at dawn in India's Gulf of Khambhat just north of the metropolis of Mumbai.

It will move east across India, Nepal, Myanmar, Bangladesh, Bhutan and China before hitting the Pacific. The eclipse will cross some southern Japanese islands and be last visible from land at Nikumaroro Island in the South Pacific nation of Kiribati. Elsewhere, a partial eclipse will be visible in much of Asia.

For astronomers, it will be a chance for a prolonged view of the sun's corona, a white ring 600,000 miles (1 million kilometers) from the sun's surface. The previous total eclipse, in August 2008, was two minutes and 27 seconds. This one will last 6 minutes and 39 seconds at its maximum point.

Solar scientist Lucie Green is aboard an American cruise ship heading for that point near the Japanese island of Iwo Jima, where the axis of the moon's shadow will pass closest to earth.

Only in 5 days 'Harry Potter' conjures up $159.7 million

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince box officeThe audience was a bit older for the new movie, with more elder teens turning out to see Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and pals Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) as they deal with adult concerns such as heartache, jealousy and romantic triangles.

Fans have grown up with the franchise, from young readers whose parents had to debate whether the early movies might be too intense for their children to see.

Harry Potter continues to work box-office alchemy, turning his latest movie adventure into an overnight blockbuster.

The sixth installment, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," took in $79.5 million domestically over opening weekend and $159.7 million since debuting last Wednesday, according to estimates from distributor Warner Bros. on Sunday.

The movie also took in $237 million overseas since Wednesday in 54 countries, bringing its worldwide total to $396.7 million.

With some of the best reviews of any "Harry Potter" movie, "Half-Blood Prince" was off to the fastest overall start in franchise history.


The World Premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

The stars of the sixth Harry Potter film walked up the red carpet in London to a rapturous welcome from thousands of fans who braved pouring rain for the world premiere of the new movie. The pre-release buzz suggests "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" will add a sizeable chunk to the 4.5 billion US dollars (3.2 billion euros) in box office receipts already earned by the Potter movie franchise.

The film opens to the public in Europe on July 15, and in the United States and Japan two days later, after being moved back from its original release date of November 2008. There was controversy just hours before the premiere, when London police charged Jamie Waylett, 19, who plays side-kick Vincent Crabbe to villain Draco Malfoy in the movies, with illegally growing cannabis plants.

One of the main actors, Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, attended the premiere after making a swift recovery from a mild case of swine flu last week. Grint took his place alongside co-stars Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry, and Emma Watson, better known to fans as the nerdy Hermione Granger.

Radcliffe, 19, said he would miss the character when the Potter films come to an end in 2011, but also admitted he was looking forward to being able to pick and choose other projects. The trio have appeared in all six films so far, after being plucked from obscurity, and have spent nearly half their lives on the set or preparing for the big screen versions of the phenomenally popular J.K. Rowling books.

Obama Checking out Girl Mayora Tavares

President Obama and girl Mayora TavaresPresident Barack Obama was caught in a very compromising position - checking out a Brazilian girl’s bootylicious behind during the G8 summit this week. The Drudge Report calls it the “second stimulus package”.

French President Nicolas Sarkozi also couldn’t resist checking that booty too. Actually Sarkozi’s naughty smirk is a bit creepy – he is either delighted with the girl’s assets or thinking Obama is one naughty boy!

The girl in question is Mayora Tavares and she is only 16 years old! How embarrassing!?! That single accident can traumatize that girl for life. Mayora was part of J8, a group of 53 people between 14 and 17 years-old, who were there to discuss how the lives of young people around the world can be improved.

Why Is She Famous? She doesn’t even have any Facebook!

Many journalists have labeled Megan Fox the next Angelina Jolie; we just think she's damn sexy. While her roles in Transformers, How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, Whore, Jennifer's Body, and the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen have yet to prove that she has the acting capabilities of Oscar winner Jolie, she does have some interesting similarities to her look-alike. Like Angie, Megan has a penchant for tattooing her body.

She has about eight in total, ranging from Old English quotes to a moon and star combo. She's been photographed many times showing off her dangerously-close-to-the-pubic-line "Brian" tattoo, but now that she's split with former fiancĂ© Brian Austin Green, we wonder if she'll be removing it, or just inking over it. As long as she keeps wearing bikinis in photo shoots, we're fine with whatever decision she makes. One more thing about Megan Fox, She has lets everyone know she doesn’t use Twitter, MySpace, or Facebook!

What Michael Jackson Did on His Last Day

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson spent the last night of his life doing what he had always done: performing. The singer was in rehearsals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, running through a full slate of songs from his upcoming 50-concert London event flanked by friends and colleagues. He marveled at the major set pieces that had finally been installed in the rehearsal space.

"He was just glowing, and you could see it, that he was finally seeing it all come together," says Dorian Holley, the vocal director for Jackson's upcoming tour. "Up until Wednesday, it had always been [just a concept], but that last day you could see it in him, that he was seeing the show finally come together for the first time. It was a big moment."

Holley says he left rehearsals just before midnight on the night of June 24, as Jackson headed off to attend yet more meetings. About 12 hours later, a 911 call would be placed from Jackson's home in Holmby Hills, reporting urgently that "he's not breathing ... He's not responding to CPR, anything."

The pop icon had seemed different during these rehearsals - not ailing by any means, but perhaps more contemplative - says Holley, who has coached Jackson on solo tours since 1987. In preparing for previous tours, Holley said auditions for backup singers and other performing roles would usually be held via videotape, and it wouldn't be all that uncommon for the two to speak directly only two or three times over the span of a year. But for "This Is It," the London concerts scheduled to begin in July, Jackson was much more present and available, attending auditions and eagerly talking with everyone in the crew about the larger mission behind the tour.
