Perhaps the most graphically disturbing piece of information in the climate arena is the assertion that sea levels will rise to a catastrophic degree. An Inconvenient Truth scared many people, and the sea level issue continues to worry them. The imagery from the movie is still etched in our minds and hearts. Imagery is powerful even if it is untrue. It lingers in the subconscious mind, where it can affect our ability to think critically and receive whole-systems information. We must be vigilant to prevent this. In this show, Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner clarifies many misconceptions about rising sea levels and offers a comprehensive understanding of this subject. Dr Mörner is highly qualified to speak on the matter. He was the former President of International Union for Quaternary Research (INQUA). Under his charge, when INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, after deliberations and discussions at several international meetings, declared a possible sea level change of +5 cm ±15cm by the year 2100, it was based on a huge amount of world-wide data gathered by scientists from different parts of the globe. Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner got his Ph.D in geology in 1969, and has worked with sea level problems for 40 years in areas scattered all over the globe. As the head of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics at Stockholm University, he worked with many different geological & geophysical problems. He organized two major international conferences: one on Earth Rheology, Isostasy and Eustasy in 1977 and one on Climate Changes on a Yearly to Millennial Basis in 1983. He has run several international field excursions through Sweedon and was President of the INQUA Commission on Neotectonics (1981-1989). He was President of INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution from 1999-2003. He headed the INTAS Project on Geomagnetism and Climate (1997-2003). In 2000, he launched an international sea level research project in the Maldives. Among his numerous publications, one may note the studies on: the interaction among isostasy and eustasy, the oscillating regional eustatic curve of NW Europe, the changing geoid concept, the redefinition of the concept of eustasy, the dynamic-rotational redistribution of oceanic water masses, the interchange of angular momentum between the hydrosphere and solid Earth, and finally the new sea level curve of the Maldives with an absence of signs of any on-going sea level rise. In 2008 he was awarded The Golden Condrite of Merit from University of Algarve (at an international sea level meeting in Portugal). Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner's extensive hands-on experience and 40 years of mindful focus bring valuable context to the climate change debate. Is the IPCC giving us an accurate picture?

ICE EMERGENCY! Burning ICE An interactive installation by Chin Chih Yang August 1, 2009, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Union Square Park near 14th Street New York City On August 1, experience the melting of Earth's ice at Burning ICE, an interactive ice environment by Chin Chih Yang. You are invited to cool down on a giant ice bench as your human warmth melts the frozen water—a mirror of how human activity is hastening the melting of the world's great ice deposits. Artist Chin Chih Yang will create an interactive environment with large blocks of ice, providing a cool surface on which visitors to Union Square Park may sit (atop towels) on a warm summer day. Emergency lighting will flash from within as the cool ice melts throughout the day, in stark contrast to the hot stone steps at the south side of Union Square Park. The artist—who this spring exhibited and performed at both the Queens Museum and Chelsea Museum—will facilitate the experience, designed to increase awareness of the importance of ice to the human population. This summer interaction of ice and people is intended to parallel the extreme environmental changes the Earth is experiencing at this time. The rapid melting of ice in the Arctic, Greenland, and elsewhere is occurring at an ever-increasing rate. Higher sea levels, widespread coastal flooding, and the inundation of Lower Manhattan are very real possibilities. Burning ICE is designed to increase awareness of the importance of Earth's ice to us all. This project is made possible in part with public funds from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Additional support provided by New York Foundation for the Arts and the Taiwanese community: Passport to Taiwan, Taiwanese Association of America Greater New York Chapter, Taiwan Center, Dr. Lung Fong Chen, and the Culture Center of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York.

The Electromagnetic Spectrum

http://www.facebook.com/ScienceReason ... [email protected]: EMS (Episode 1) - An Introduction To The Electromagnetic Spectrum --- Please SUBSCRIBE to Science & Reason: • http://www.youtube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.youtube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.youtube.com/FFreeThinker --- Measuring the electromagnetic spectrum You actually know more about it than you may think! The electromagnetic (EM) spectrum is just a name that scientists give a bunch of types of radiation when they want to talk about them as a group. Radiation is energy that travels and spreads out as it goes-- visible light that comes from a lamp in your house and radio waves that come from a radio station are two types of electromagnetic radiation. Other examples of EM radiation are microwaves, infrared and ultraviolet light, X-rays and gamma-rays. Hotter, more energetic objects and events create higher energy radiation than cool objects. Only extremely hot objects or particles moving at very high velocities can create high-energy radiation like X-rays and gamma-rays. The different types of radiation in the EM spectrum, in order from lowest energy to highest: Radio: Yes, this is the same kind of energy that radio stations emit into the air for your boom box to capture and turn into your favorite Mozart, Madonna, or Justin Timberlake tunes. But radio waves are also emitted by other things ... such as stars and gases in space. You may not be able to dance to what these objects emit, but you can use it to learn what they are made of. Microwaves: They will cook your popcorn in just a few minutes! Microwaves in space are used by astronomers to learn about the structure of nearby galaxies, and our own Milky Way! Infrared: Our skin emits infrared light, which is why we can be seen in the dark by someone using night vision goggles. In space, IR light maps the dust between stars. Visible: Yes, this is the part that our eyes see. Visible radiation is emitted by everything from fireflies to light bulbs to stars ... also by fast-moving particles hitting other particles. Ultraviolet: We know that the Sun is a source of ultraviolet (or UV) radiation, because it is the UV rays that cause our skin to burn! Stars and other "hot" objects in space emit UV radiation. X-rays: Your doctor uses them to look at your bones and your dentist to look at your teeth. Hot gases in the Universe also emit X-rays . Gamma-rays: Radioactive materials (some natural and others made by man in things like nuclear power plants) can emit gamma-rays. Big particle accelerators that scientists use to help them understand what matter is made of can sometimes generate gamma-rays. But the biggest gamma-ray generator of all is the Universe! It makes gamma radiation in all kinds of ways. • http://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/science/know_l1/emspectrum.html .

TEXAS GULF TREASURES - DIVING THE FLOWER GARDENS BANKS NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY
 
05:10
TEXAS GEMS - FLOWER GARDEN BANKS NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY Site Description Flower Garden Banks was designated as a National Sanctuary on January 17, 1992; Stetson Bank was added in October, 1996. It ia located approximately 110 miles south of the Texas / Louisiana border, the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary includes three banks: East Flower Garden, West Flower Garden, and Stetson. The Banks are perched atop salt domes rising above the ocean floor. The Flower Garden Banks harbor the northernmost coral reefs in the United States. Although not as biologically diverse as most tropical reefs, they are regional reservoirs of shallow-water Caribbean reef fishes and invertebrates in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Stetson Bank, 30 miles closer to shore, is a clay/siltstone bank dominated by sponges and fire coral. It supports an extraordinary fish community but is not a coral reef. Increased existing and potential impacts from anchor damage, oil and gas exploration / production /transportation, over fishing, and souvenir collecting prompted protection of the three banks. Area of Influence: The sanctuary is influenced by currents flowing around the Yucatan peninsula and northward along the coasts of Mexico and Texas. The area is also affected by eddies originating from the loop current in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Although two-thirds of the United States drains into the Gulf of Mexico, negative impacts from major river systems such as the Mississippi and the Rio Grande have so far not been observed, probably because of the sanctuary's distance from the shore. Ecological and Cultural Characteristics Habitat Type: Flower Garden Banks - pelagic zone, coral reef (high diversity and low diversity zones), coral line algae, algae-sponge, brine seep chemosynthetic community (East Bank only), drowned reefs, sand bottom. Stetson Bank - pelagic zone, clay/siltstone bedrock, fire coral/sponge community, scattered coral colonies. Rare/Endangered Species: The species best known to the sanctuary are the loggerhead sea turtles, the leatherback sea turtles, and the hawksbill sea turtles. Breeding/Nursery Area: All banks are breeding and nursery areas for many tropical reef fish species. Recent research indicates that the Flower Gardens may also serve as a nursery area for juvenile manta rays. Forage Area: All three banks are thought to support a balance of trophic levels among reef fish species; larger species foraging in the area include manta rays, sea turtles (primarily loggerhead), and several species of sharks (including occasional whale sharks). Migratory Species: Hammerhead sharks - winter (Jan. - April) Spotted eagle rays - spring Adult Manta Rays - seen more frequently in winter months Sea turtle Geomorphic Features: Salt domes (diapirs - all banks) Brine seep (East Flower Garden Bank) Coral reefs (East & West Flower Garden banks) Ecosystem Function: Serves as a biological reservoir of Caribbean species in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Uniqueness of Natural Community: Average 50% coral cover at Flower Garden Banks More than 21 species of coral 175 species of fish More than 250 species of macro-invertebrates More than 80 species of algae Although species diversity is less than that of most Caribbean coral reefs, the ecology of the Flower Garden Banks and Stetson Bank are considered to be well-balanced in terms of the structural and functional elements, which include critical trophic levels and species interaction. Archaeological and Cultural Significance: The sanctuary does not include any known archaeological sites The Flower Gardens were discovered and named in the early 1900s by snapper fishermen. They pulled up bits of brightly colored sponges, corals and algae that snagged on their lines, which were responsible for the name Flower Gardens.

ASR - Aquifer Storage and Retrieval for Everglades Restoration
 
05:09
ASR is a primary component of the Everglades Restoration effort. This is a promotional video by the South Florida Water Management District. More information: http://www.evergladesplan.org/pm/projects/proj_44_asr_regional.aspx === There are many concerns about ASR that are not mentioned taxpayer-funded agency. --- Fragile How the $8-billion restoration deal will work -- and how it could fall apart. By Cynthia Barnett and Mike Vogel Florida Trend, March 2001 http://www.floridatrend.com/article_reg.asp?aID=43296 or http://www.law.miami.edu/library/everglades/news/save/2001/03/030101_fltrend_fragile_how_the_8_billion_restoration_deal_will_work.htm --- The Water Issue: Restoration Dreams Without a Paddle Journey with us through the watery heart of the largest subtropical wetlands in America: the Everglades. Why? Because it's there—or used to be. By W. Hodding Carter Outside Magazine, August 2003 http://outside.away.com/outside/features/200308/200308_everglades_1.html (Excerpt from page 4) Instead of dumping all that water into the ocean, the Corps and the SFWMD have a cunning plan to pump it into South Florida's aquifer. Their method? A series of aquifer-storage-and-recovery (ASR) systems, 330 to be exact, that are being incorporated into the existing matrix of water-control structures. Basically, up to 1.6 billion gallons a day will be pumped 1,100 feet underground, where, theoretically, it will push aside the naturally brackish water, forming a kind of freshwater bubble that will simply hang out until it's "recovered" for agricultural use, drinking water, and recharging the Everglades. Sounds great, except that no one's quite sure if it's going to work. The National Research Council, a federally funded consortium of independent scientists, warns that the increased water pressure may fracture the limestone that seals the aquifer. "We really don't know what's going to happen to that limestone over time," says Hal Wanless, head of the geology department at the University of Miami. "Pumping that amount of water in and out on a year-round basis might just destroy the aquifer." [ http://www.as.miami.edu/geology/faculty#hwanless ] It's worth noting that of the 100 municipal underground treated-wastewater-injection units in use in Florida, 33 percent leak into the aquifer. When you consider that a healthy flow of freshwater isn't projected to return to the lower Everglades until 2018, the future looks bleak. "There's no 'restoration' in the restoration plan," says Stuart Pimm, a conservation ecologist at Duke University who has advised the Corps. "This whole thing is a sham."

Rotating isometric video of Rover, a sculpture by David Davies and Bert Snow. Inspired by the Mars Rover project, Rover was an interactive installation designed to raise awareness of the emerging coastal trails network in the towns of Amesbury, Salisbury, Newbury, and Newburyport, MA. It was the recipient of a 2004 NEFA Grant and National Park Service award. A two day event, participants set out to take digital photos along the existing trails, many of which were abandoned railbeds. Upon return to Rover their photos were immediately printed and posted on the four panels representing each town. In 2010 two of the trails were officially opened as paved bicycle and pedestrian paths. Music: istock - 8624278

Rising Seas and Sandy Beach Transgressions: A Study in Northern Puget Sound
 
39:50
Washington State Department of Natural Resources geographer and Western Washington University alumnus Michael Grilliot speaks about rising sea levels in Puget Sound. In his lecture, Grilliot discusses the potential effects of sea level rise on the physical profile of sandy beaches on San Juan Island, including transgression of the shoreline and backshore erosion. While similar work has been conducted on sandy beaches around the world, Grilliots work is the first modeling application of this type in northern Puget Sound. The model used by Grilliot, a variation of the Bruun model modified by Nicholls in 1998, takes into account wave height, elevation, depth and sea level rise along two-dimensional profiles. The results of Grilliots work will provide coastal managers and stakeholders with vital information as to how sea level rise may affect sandy beaches and could influence coastal planning, policy, and management, as well as identify future research targets.

America's WETLAND: World Delta Dialogues
 
04:25
Video profile of DELTAS2010:World Delta Dialogues. The world's largest deltas have many shared characteristics: they are densely populated -- close to half a billion people live on or near deltas -- and their inhabitants are becoming increasingly vulnerable to flooding and erosion that result in conversions of land to open water. These deltas are areas of rich biodiversity, which will also decline as a result of habitat conversion. Approaches to restoring and protecting deltas worldwide are complicated by diverse environmental and economic interests and assets of the region including wetlands, fisheries and waterfowl together with energy, security, cultural resources, community resiliency, navigation and transportation infrastructure. In addition, recent research reveals that sea-level rise, subsidence, reduced sediment flows and floodplain engineering are placing many ecologically and economically important deltaic systems in crisis. To address the many complex issues and interests at play in deltaic regions, cooperation among stakeholders in the world's deltas is needed to share promising practices and technology, develop intellectual capital and build knowledge about scenarios for future sustainability. To foster this cooperation, the America's WETLAND Foundation in partnership with the Royal Netherlands Embassy, The Nature Conservancy and the Greater New Orleans Foundation organized DELTAS2010: World Delta Dialogues. The inaugural World Delta Dialogue—DELTAS2010—convened in New Orleans, Louisiana from October 17 - 20, 2010 and attracted a select delegation representing governments, NGOs, and the science and engineering community from across the globe, along with local and regional authorities on the world's great deltas. DELTAS2010 was an invitation-only, four-day, hands-on conference focused on designing sustainable development, restoration and protection scenarios for world deltaic regions, using the setting of the Mississippi Delta as the focus for the discussion. In addition to pre-conference, off-site lab sessions, tours and thematic plenary sessions, a series of facilitated, highly interactive working design charettes produced cross-disciplinary approaches to the issues facing deltas worldwide. DELTAS2010 resulted in a report of findings that will be presented to organizations interested in comprehensive forecasting, best practices, technology transfer, research, and policy for deltaic regions.
Reverse Osmosis Process
 
03:26
http://www.pakwatercare.org How Does Reverse Osmosis Work? A semipermeable membrane, like the membrane of a cell wall or a bladder, is selective about what it allows to pass through, and what it prevents from passing. These membranes in general pass water very easily because of its small molecular size, but also prevent many other contaminants from passing by trapping them. Water will typically be present on both sides of the membrane, with each side having a different concentration of dissolved minerals. Since the water in the less concentrated solution seeks to dilute the more concentrated solution, water will pass through the membrane from the lower concentration side to the greater concentration side. Eventually, osmotic pressure (seen in the diagram below as the pressure created by the difference in water levels) will counter the diffusion process exactly, and an equilibrium will form. The process of reverse osmosis forces water with a greater concentration of contaminants (the source water) into a tank containing water with an extremely low concentration of contaminants (the processed water). High water pressure on the source side is used to "reverse" the natural osmotic process, with the semi-permeable membrane still permitting the passage of water while rejecting most of the other contaminants. The specific process through which this occurs is called ion exclusion, in which a concentration of ions at the membrane surface form a barrier that allows other water molecules to pass through while excluding other substances. Even with these advances, the "reject" water on the source side of a Reverse Osmosis (RO) system must be discarded in order to keep it from becoming so concentrated that it forms a scale on the membrane itself. RO systems also typically require a carbon prefilter for the reduction of chlorine, which can damage an RO membrane. A sediment prefilter is always required to ensure that fine suspended materials in the source water do not permanently clog the membrane. Hardness reduction, either through the use of water softening for residential units or chemical softening for industrial use, may also be desirable in hard water areas. Water enters the RO membrane under pressure and travels from the feed end to the reject end. Some of this feed water passes through the membrane and becomes purified. This water is called the RO product water. The contaminants that were previously in the product water exit the membrane in the reject water. Several layers of membrane material are sandwiched between spacer material to form leaves with a feed / reject channel and a product channel. These leaves are then rolled around a central product collection tube. This assembly is referred to as a spiral wound membrane element. The reject water exits the vessel and feed the next vessel or is sent to drain. The product water exits the vessel and is sent to a storage tank or point of use. An o-ring seal prevents the reject water from mixing with the product water. High pressure commercial / industrial units typically provide from 2 gallons to 400 gallons per minute of water with an efficiency of 0.3 - 6 gallons of reject water per gallon of product water produced. These systems typically remove greater than 95% of the dissolved solids found in the feed water. These systems tend to be much larger and more complicated than low pressure systems.

TEDxLahore - Omer Sheikh & Jabran Rafique - All you need is a map and some goodwill
 
14:31
Citing the Earthquake 2005 as the inspiration for him and Jabran Rafique to start digitally mapping Pakistan, Omer Sheikh asks some tough questions -- and goes on to reveal the endless benefits of having access to national information. About the speakers Image: Jabran RafiqueJabran Rafique is a student of MSc Web Development at Staffordshire University, and has been involved in mapping Pakistan with the Google Map Maker project since 2008. He has been recogonized as one of the top contributors to collective mapping in the world and received a Distinguished Super Mapper award by Google in 2009. His work has been featured on official Google blogs, and runs Google Map Maker & Google Maps Pakistan fan groups. His most recent collaboration involves Omer Sheikh, regarding relief efforts in landslide hit area in Hunza Valley, Pakistan. Image: Omer SheikhOmer is a technology enthusiast who believes that technology can help with innovative new solutions to problems in Pakistan. One of his key interests is in structuring and documenting the various aspects of Pakistan and life in it. In his opinion, aspects of life taken for granted in Pakistan need a fresh take and that Pakistanis should re-discover themselves through their collective assets; human, historical, cultural and aspirational. He is critical of the degradation all around in Pakistan; where instead of improving over time, quality of life and experience is deteriorating. He wants to see Lahore, his favourite city, managed in sustainable and informed ways. Omer has a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science from LUMS and a graduate degree in Engineering Physics from Cornell University which he attended as a Fulbright Scholar.

[HD 1080p] Requiem - Memento Mori (Trailer+Gameplay)
 
08:50
Requiem: Memento Mori is free to play darkly themed 3D Fantasy horror MMORPG. the game is developed by Gravity Interactive and published by the same company. The game has very impressive "ragdoll physics" system in its animated death sequences for each enemy. The game includes many unique features and most of them will be listed down below. There are four races in the game, each race includes 2 different job classes, these job classes also have 2nd jobs: 1.Turan - Strength: Balanced strength, agility, and intelligence. - Weakness: Low resistance against magic. Classes: - Defender develops into Commander Protector - Templar develops into Templest Radiant 2.Bartuk - Strength: High Strength and Solidarity - Weakness: Low Spirit, Susceptible Minds Classes: - Warrior develops into Berserker Warlord - Shaman develops into Forsaker Mystic 3.Kruxena - Strength: Physical and Spiritual Superiority - Weakness: Won't cooperate with other races. Lack compassion and tenacity, and are inhumane. Classes: - Rogue develops into Shadow Runner Assasin - Soul Hunter develops into Defiler Dominator 4.Xenoa - Strength: High intelligence level, swiftness and visual power. - Weakness: Small Body, Low Physical Strength Classes: - Hunter develops into Avenger Ranger - Battlemagician develops into Elementalist Druid Features: Nightmare Monsters - Certain monsters appear at night in certain areas during the "in-game" hours of 23:00 and 2:00, these 'Nightmare Monsters' are far stronger than the local mobs and yield increased experience along with higher chances of "rare" item drops. These monsters are usually fought in groups. Weapon Enhancements - With several different item enhancement systems, players can create new items or upgrade and customize existing ones. These upgraded items are created through the use of compounding and reinforcing by using various 'xeons'. Possession Beast System - A player can transform his or her character into a ferocious creature known as a Possession Beast. By leveling Possession Beasts, players can equip it with an even deadlier selection of various skills, abilities and equipment. However, players are required to fill a 'Hardcore Bar' up by killing monsters to a minimum of at least 90% before one can use his or her Possession Beast. PVP - Requiem features battlefields meant for team-based player-versus-player combat. Only the victorious are rewarded with special items used for obtaining the rare weapons and armors. While the game's scope allows team battles of up to 96 players per side, as of now only 8-vs-8 battles are functional. DNA System - DNA is a game mechanic that allows you to passively enhance certain aspects of skills. Each individual DNA is designed to complement one particular skill. Group Zones/Raids/Town Raids - Certain areas in the game require a party of 4 or more. These dungeon areas are filled with strong enemies to increase the difficulty (and, theoretically, the excitement) of the raid. Typically each dungeon concludes with a "raid boss," enemies that are far superior to any other character; these bosses require groups of 15 or more to defeat. However, such dungeons give access to the most powerful items in the game. Finally, "town raids" may occur when a random raid boss enters a town (which is normally a non-combat zone) and players are given the option to engage it. Official site: http://www.playrequiem.com

Summer recreation areas are put under the microscope at Lewis University
 
03:48
http://www.lewisu.edu Secondary exposure to disease causing agents while having fun in the sun at natural recreation areas was one of the surprising finds during a Lewis University undergraduate research project that is in its final stages. The study examined the exposure of people to coliform bacteria at unmonitored recreational areas, where people fish, boat, picnic and more. Coliform bacteria indicate fecal contamination and the potential presence of other disease causing agents in the environment. Dr. Jerry Kavouras, assistant professor of biology at Lewis University, mentored five students as they monitored Tampier Lake in Cook County and Isle a la Cache Forest Preserve in Will County from May through October 2009. Thomas Soderquist represented his fellow classmates—Thomas Lynch, Nina Schubert, Cory Knickerbocker and Devon McCord—when he presented their research on the presence of coliform bacteria in recreational areas at the 110th General Meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in San Diego. "This project was exciting because the students were able to apply what they learned in the classroom in the field. I could practically see the light bulbs glowing in their heads as they were doing this fieldwork," commented Kavouras. Lynch presented the research at the 43rd annual Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area Student Symposium in April at Lewis University. He added, "We were surprised that regular fishing line contained less disease causing agents than did the areas that you don't think about as being sources of contamination, such as socks and pant legs." Clothing such as socks and pant legs were tested if the ground was still wet from precipitation earlier that day or the day before sampling. Bare feet were tested on days when the ground was dry. The results indicated that people could transfer a high concentration of coliform bacteria or other disease causing agents from these sites if they are not careful. Coliform bacteria were regularly detected on fishing lines, but not E. coli. The number of coliform bacteria on fishing lines was low, which suggests the chances of becoming ill from a fishing expedition are very low. Swab samples taken from places where people eat, such as picnic tables and benches, tested positive for coliform bacteria approximately half the time, but rarely E. coli. The number of coliform bacteria was also low indicating the chance of getting sick from eating in these areas is low. The levels of coliform bacteria in river and lake water samples were very high at both sites regularly indicating that exposure to dangerous levels of disease causing agents by direct interaction with the water, such as splashing your hands or ingestion, is high. A $3,000 grant from the Colonel Stephen S. and Lyla Doherty Center for Aviation and Health Research funded the acquisition of necessary supplies for the research. The Doherty Center is located at Lewis University and it funds research and scholarly initiatives; encourages partnerships among the University, its students and the community; provides opportunities for research experiences for students with faculty mentors. Investigators supported by the Doherty Center have focused on areas such as: risk reduction in children with asthma, prediction of emergency department surge capacity, examination of the growth and spread of pathogens, and career development for mental health professionals. "Touching Hearts & Minds: The Campaign for Lewis University" is a $30 million initiative to provide increased scholarship funding and expanded facilities to enhance learning. Plans call for expanding the current Science Building on the Lewis campus with new classrooms and labs, dedicated undergraduate research spaces and casual gathering places for faculty/student interaction. For more information about The Campaign for Lewis University, contact Jonathan Yordy at (815) 836-5875 or [email protected] Lewis University is a Catholic university offering distinctive undergraduate and graduate programs to more than 5,800 traditional and adult students.

Hyperbaric Chamber Therapy Part 2
 
04:59
http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/products.html 3. How Does It Work? * The mild hyperbaric chamber is filled with compressed ambient air from 2 to 4.5 pounds per square inch. (1.3 ATA max) This is the equivalent of 11 feet below sea level. * The increased pressure allows the blood plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb additional oxygen thus greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain, and fluids of the body. * The resulting uptake of oxygen allows for increased circulation to areas with swelling or inflammation. At the same time, the increased pressure decreases swelling and inflammation. * Oxygen is then utilized by the body for vital cell functions, healthier cells equals healthier tissues, and organs. * The human body is capable of healing itself when it has what it needs. There is NOTHING the human body needs more than OXYGEN. 4. Why does it work? Henry's Law of Physics: * An increase in atmospheric pressure allows for more gas to be dissolved into any given liquid. * Oxygen, the 8th element on the Periodic Table, exists as a gas at room temperature. * The human body is composed almost completely of water. Gas under pressure dissolves in water Bolivia, Sucre Macedonia, Skjope Warren, Michigan Madison, Wisconsin Springfield, Missouri Bulgaria, Sofia City of Lismore, Australia Warrnambool, Victoria Chile, Santiago http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/hyperbaric-chamber.html http://www.balancedhealthtoday.com/Hyperbairc-Oxygen-Therapy-Autism.html

What is Thermography? Part One - Jeanne Stryker, MD of ThermalMD.us
 
08:42
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patterns of the body. It is different than other screening tools because it helps us to see function (physiology). MRI and X-ray detect anatomical changes so will miss such things as active inflammation or angiogenesis(increased blood supply as found in cancer) . It was approved by the FDA for breast cancer screening in 1982. It can detect early danger signs in the body years before other tools. It has been shown to be effective in finding early signs of breast cancer up to 8 years before the mammogram.

Dr. Mark Hyman - "The UltraMind Solution: Healthy Body, Powerful Mind" November 9, 2010 While science has been increasingly demonstrating that the mind affects the body, what impact does the body have on the mind? Could it be that depression, anxiety, insomnia and other mental disturbances are caused by imbalances in the body? Can addressing our diet (including food sensitivities and allergies), sleep patterns, exercise habits, and the level of toxins in our body radically transform our brain function and deeply influence mood, memory, and attention? The answer is yes!

About Richard La Ruina : CEO and founder of Pua Training, author of The Natural Art of Seduction, Richard 'Gambler' La Ruina before age 21 was a painfully shy introvert with terrible social skills, who got called ugly by girls and had low self-esteem. He stayed awake at night and wondered if he'd ever be able to find a girlfriend. He has spent the past 6 years working on every aspect of his character, including skills with women. People from his youth no longer recognize him and people that meet him can't believe he wasn't always a "natural" -- both socially and with women. Any success or ability that he possesses, he has had to work for. Because he has gone from zero to hero, he knows the steps necessary and this is what makes his teaching so effective. The nickname: At 18 years old, Gambler took his life savings of £2000 and put them to work in the stock market. Over the next 6 years, he earned his nickname The God of Gamblers -- from the Hong Kong film character who never loses a gamble. The nickname was later shortened to Gambler. Now, he lives in Leicester Sq. London and his full-time job is teaching guys how to achieve success with women.
