Science: Genome Brings Ancient Girl to Life

Found on Scoop.it - Work From Home



In a stunning technical feat, an international team of scientists has sequenced the genome of an archaic Siberian girl 31 times over, using a new method that amplifies single strands of DNA. The sequencing is so complete that researchers have as sharp a picture of this ancient genome as they would of a living person's, revealing, for example that the girl had brown eyes, hair, and skin. . . .

Budget and Survival Skills versus In Sickness and In Health

The alternate title for this post is:
“Am I being callous, insensitive, lacking empathy, unsympathetic, cruel and unkind?”


Perusing my eMail Inbox and quickly glanced at a question in one of the messages that made me chuckle. It was about what your knee-jerk reaction is when faced with financial problems.

  • When experiencing financial difficulties does your instinct immediately prod you to cut back?
 
Well? I guess so! But more than likely my “cutbacks” happen because there's no money! Not sure my “instinct” was necessary. ((O.o))

◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ ◊ 
 

On a serious note, the question provoked my memory recall. A while back, was watching a popular talk show once and it was rather disturbing. It's disturbing that people who do things that don't make sense are always “ill”. This woman supposedly had an “illness”. She would buy stuff she didn't really need!

  • If you're filthy rich and you have large barns to store all of your worldly possessions, then it doesn't matter. You would be called a “shopaholic”.
  • If you bought a load of crap and had the decency to give it away because you realized you weren't really using it, you'd be called “charitable”.
But when loads of crap are piled up in your house to the point that the place is a junk heap and you and your partner can barely see the bed you both lie down to sleep on … then you're sick!
A team was sent in to clean the place up and the team actually got sick from breathing in toxic stuff – dust, spores, mites, who knows what! - from piles of clothing, etc. that had been lying around the home for years. Items bought from the store that still had the price tags on them!!!
 
Listening to the interviewer questioning this woman as to why she was buying things she didn't need and her response was … (not an exact quote): “Because the blouses were on sale and there were different colors available, so I bought one in each color.” 
 
The interviewer turns to question the husband and it seems he gave her credit cards for her spending purposes. You know? Grocery shopping, health and beauty needs, wardrobe necessities, things for practical living, and maybe an occasional gift or guilty pleasure luxury product.


Started thinking to myself. Don't know who the sick person is. The wife or the husband? Seems to me the CURE was taking away the credit cards. YOU CAN'T BUY NOTHING IF YOU AIN'T GOT NO MONEY!!!


It really perturbs me, that people do dumb stuff and get to write it off as an “illness”. OR … am I being insensitive to this poor woman who is clearly not poor because she can afford to buy things she has no need for, has no place to put them, and never even blinked at the thought about making a donation to a charity!!

(Just a rant. Thank you for letting me shout it out.)

The Mystery of Dreams

“The Mystery of Dreams – Your Dreams Decoded”

by Isabel Kroemer

(Article reprinted with permission.)

Ever dreamed of falling, being chased or being naked? Scientists believe that paying attention to your dreams can actually improve your life. They said that dreams are a person’s unconscious assessment of their real-life situations. More so, you can use dreams to your advantage.
Dreams start when a person is in the REM stage of sleep. Experts say that this is the stage where emotions meet memories. This explains why we sometimes wake up crying or laughing. The brain also mixes our memories in very unusual ways resulting to really weird dreams.


#1 The ‘I’m-being-chased’ dream
Do you often run away or hide in your dreams? Psychotherapists explain that the entity chasing you may represent your own unresolved feelings of anger, jealousy, fear or even stress. Oftentimes, these issues can enter your dreams and manifest as a frightening attacker or pursuer.

The best way to stop recurring dreams of being chased is to take a good look of who or what is chasing you. Figure out the thing you’re most afraid of before it becomes a nightmare. So unless it’s Freddy Krueger, stop running.

#2 The ‘I’m-falling’ dream
Falling in a dream is a common theme. Experts say that falling may indicate insecurities, anxieties, and uncontrollable situations. It’s your subconscious telling you that your life is moving in the wrong direction. It may be your job, finances, relationship or something else.

There’s also a scientific explanation that says ‘falling dreams’ signal the first stage of sleep. This stage is often accompanied by sudden muscle spasms which explain why we wake up from a ‘falling dream’ with a body twitch or jerk.

#3 The ‘snakes-are-everywhere’ dream
Snakes are the most widely interpreted symbols in dreams which often vary according to culture. According to Freud’s theory, snakes symbolise an unconscious sexual desire or a male figure. For Christian cultures, snakes may mean temptation or opposition against your goal.

Furthermore, psychotherapists offer a simpler explanation. If the dreamer is afraid of snakes in his waking life, it indicates a need to overcome his phobia. That’s why Hypnotherapy SA is the best way to rid of snake dreams – by gaining access to your subconscious.

#4 The ‘swimming-in-the-water’ dream
Ever dreamed of swimming in a body of water with nowhere to go? It may be a sign that you’re seeking for emotional support. The water may also reflect your own emotions. Murky or dark water announces failures and depression. Clear water means undergoing a cleansing process.

Astrological interpretations also connect swimming with employment and knowledge. Swimming inside the house indicates working for a ruthless or unjust employer. If a man of knowledge sees himself swimming, it means he will attain his goals.

#5 The ‘I’m-a- famous-celebrity’ dream
Evolutionary psychologists say that it’s not strange to dream about celebrities. During a dream state, our brain can’t distinguish between people we ‘actually’ know and those we just see or hear a lot. In other words, your college friend may turn into a celebrity figure in your dreams.

For psychotherapists, dreaming of celebrities could mean that the dreamer longs for a higher social status. This reflects that the one dreaming has low self-esteem. In this case, Hypnotherapy Adelaide is the best option to boost confidence through the subconscious mind.

Bio-Snapshot: Former Fitness Pro, Lisa Lowe

So! Just in case you were wondering what the end result would be if you combined bodybuilding and ballet training, look at the photographs below.  You might end up looking like former fitness pro Lisa Lowe.  Don’t know much about this person, but came across an interesting bio-snapshot of this lady. Collecting biographies (mini-bios, actually) is one of my hobbies. Most of the time my findings are shared via Pinterest. Sometimes, the links are recycled via other social media networks or at one of my blogs. This article was published about five (5) years ago.  Ms. Lowe is no longer a professional competitor; she is married, a mother of two and resides in California.  If you are thinking about following in her footsteps, all I can say: She sure set the bar really high!! :)

One final thought:

September is National Yoga Month and perhaps nobody has made this connection but seems to me Yoga and Aromatherapy would pair quite nicely. Don't you agree?
