“There was no Big Bang” – We live in a Universe that endlessly expands and contracts
‘Does the universe repeat itself every trillion years? A new cosmological model appears to demonstrate that the universe can endlessly expand and contract, providing a rival to Big Bang theories and solving a thorny modern physics problem, according to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill physicists. A new view that requires for a new take on our concept of time – one that has more in common with the “cyclic” views of time held by ancient thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle and Leonardo da Vinci, than the Christian Calender and Bible-influenced belief in “linear” time now so deeply imbedded in modern western thinking.’

Light bends matter, surprising scientists
http://tinyurl.com/yjxsgbg
‘Light can twist matter, according to a new study that observed ribbons of nanoparticles twisting in response to light. Scientists knew matter can cause light to bend — prisms and glasses prove this easily enough. But the reverse phenomenon was not shown to occur until recently.’

Hubble telescope shows Universe expansion is speeding up and proves Einstein’s theory
‘In the biggest survey ever conducted using the Hubble Space telescope, 446,000 galaxies were studied to see how matter was distributed throughout the universe and how quickly it had expanded. And the astronomers found that the universe was growing faster and faster with time, as predicted by Einstein in his theory of general relativity.’

…. so, isn’t it possible that the matter in the universe is causing to bend and LOOK like it’s ‘expansion’ is ‘speeding up’?….

Eyes can tell what we have in our minds

‘Eyes are not just windows to the soul – they can also tell what we are thinking, a new research has shown. Researchers at the University of Melbourne have been able to predict the numbers people are thinking of by analysing their eye movements. In the study, participants were asked to state a series of random numbers. By measuring their vertical and horizontal eye position, researchers were able to predict with reliable confidence the next chosen number – before it was spoken. Specifically, a leftward and downward change in eye position announced that the next number would be smaller than the last.’

Bees in more trouble than ever after bad winter

‘The mysterious 4-year-old crisis of disappearing honeybees is deepening. A quick federal survey indicates a heavy bee die-off this winter, while a new study shows honeybees’ pollen and hives laden with pesticides.’

…. surprise, surprise…

‘Two federal agencies along with regulators in California and Canada are scrambling to figure out what is behind this relatively recent threat, ordering new research on pesticides used in fields and orchards. Federal courts are even weighing in this month, ruling that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency overlooked a requirement when allowing a pesticide on the market.’

….’overlooked’?… ‘looked the other way’, more likely…

How Dead is That Doggie in the Window
Highly aggressive tumors developed around the microchip implants of two American dogs, killing one of the pets and leaving the other terminally ill. Their owners — and pathology and autopsy reports — have suggested a link between the chips and the formation of the fast-growing cancers.

Physicists resolve confounding paradox of Quantum Theory
Read Full Article @ http://tinyurl.com/8qp2n4
‘University of Toronto quantum physicists Jeff Lundeen and Aephraim Steinberg have shown that Hardy’s paradox, a proposal that has confounded physicists for over a decade, can be confirmed and ultimately resolved, a task which had seemingly been impossible to perform. “For nearly a century, the widespread interpretation of quantum mechanics suggests that everything is uncertain until it is observed, and that observation inevitably alters reality,” says Professor Steinberg. “However, in the 1990s, a technique known as ‘interaction-free measurement’ seemed to promise the ability to ‘see without looking,’ as a Scientific American article put it at the time. But when Lucien Hardy proposed that one could never reliably make inferences about past events which hadn’t been directly observed, a paradox emerged which suggested that whenever one attempted to reason about the past in this way they would be led into error.”‘ ‘”Until recently, it seemed impossible to carry out Hardy’s proposal in practice, let alone to confirm or resolve the paradox,” he says. “We have finally been able to do so, and to apply Aharonov’s methods to the problem, showing that there is a way, even in quantum mechanics, in which one can quite consistently discuss past events even after they are over and done. Weak measurement finds what is there without disturbing it.”‘

(TWR)…. does that not mean then that you can indeed observe something without changing it’s momentum? isn’t that refuting quantum theory completely?

Why so many minds think alike

‘You’re in a room with 10 other people who seem to agree on something, but you hold the opposite view. Do you say something? Or do you just go along with the others? Decades of research show people tend to go along with the majority view, even if that view is objectively incorrect. Now, scientists are supporting those theories with brain images. A new study in the journal Neuron shows when people hold an opinion differing from others in a group, their brains produce an error signal. A zone of the brain popularly called the “oops area” becomes extra active,while the “reward area” slows down, making us think we are too different.’

(TWR)…. however, don’t forget cnn ditched their entire science staff recently….

Happiness and Life Satisfaction Lead to Better Health
People who are happier and more satisfied with their lives might also enjoy better health, said a study led by Mohammad Siahpush, Ph.D., professor of health promotion at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. “Everything else being equal, if you are happy and satisfied with your life now, you are more likely to be healthy in the future,” said Siahpush.
