  • Oxytocin isn't just the "love hormone." And dopamine isn't merely "the reward neurotransmitter." And serotonin isn't just the "happy chemical."
  • It's an elegant way to understand the primary structure of the human brain. The old parts of the brain are like the elephant: A simple yet powerful creature, ruled by primal emotion and desires. The new brain (or prefrontal cortex) is the rider: Smarter and more rational but easily overpowered.
  • One paper published by a Duke University researcher in 2006 found that more than 40 percent of the actions people performed each day weren't actual decisions, but habits.

  • Le Sage’s shadow gravity model was never very popular, in large part because its focus was to explain the mechanism of gravity without making any testable predictions.  Newton’s action-at-a-distance may be strange, but it works extraordinarily well as a physical theory. By the early 1900s, when Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, gravity was seen as a local effect due to the curvature of space.  Action-at-a-distance isn’t needed for gravity, and so Le Sage’s idea is generally considered a failed idea.
  • Perhaps what’s most interesting about Le Sage’s model is how it got some ideas right.  With light, shadow effects between dust particles do produce a small net attractive force, and that force follows an inverse square relation just like gravity.  It is sometimes referred to as mock gravity.  And matter really is mostly empty space, with dense clumps of matter spread throughout an object.  We now know that these are the nuclei of atoms.

  • China has a huge influence in the region and Admiral Locklear says its emergence as the world's second biggest economy has been good for global trade in general.

     

    But he says there are still concerns over its security responsibilities.

     

    "I think the question for China is what leadership role they take other than in the economic realm," he says.

  • 麦克维相信,这次炸弹袭击对政府政策产生了积极的影响,并举出多个例子为证,如1996年蒙大拿自由人对峙的和平解决;爆炸案过后四个月,政府与兰迪·韦弗和他幸存的孩子以310万美元达成和解;还有2000年4月比尔·克林顿表示后悔决定强攻大卫教派营地的声明。麦克维声称:“只要你把恶霸的鼻血打出来,让他知道自己还要再挨一拳,他就不敢再回来了。
  • 2001年的九一一袭击事件发生后,联邦公路管理局经过对包括俄克拉何马城爆炸案在内多个事件加以考量后提议,给主要的大都市地区创建平民疏散路线,这些突出显示的路线将让救援人员和政府机构得以更加迅速地赶赴灾区。希望能够通过帮助平民迅速撤离,救援人员快速到达,让人员伤亡减少到最低限度。[177]

     

  • Spotify's music quality is higher than Pandora if you have the bandwidth to support higher bitrates. You can set playback to Low (96kb/s), High (160kb/s), and Extreme (320kb/s), just be careful to balance music quality with data fees if you're concerned about hitting your wireless carrier's data cap.

     

  • Google has licensing deals in place with all three major music labels (Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group) and advertises a catalog of over 18 million songs, a little shy of Spotify's 20 million catalog.

  • I'm going to preface this by saying that I only looked at true on-demand streaming services for this comparison. That means services like iTunes Radio, Pandora, and Songza can't be compared since they don't support offline playback of any kind. I'll take a look at those services in another comparison.

    • Spotify - 20 million
    • Beats Music - 20 million
    • Rdio - 20 million

  • According to Dutch fashion designer Borre Akkersdijk there is no such thing as wearable technology. “Wearable technology does not exist at all,” says Akkersdijk. “It’s carry-able technology.” He believes that the current generation of pedometers, augmented glasses, and other gizmos we clip to our clothing mean to solve important problems, but he’s not sure they do so as well as they could.
