This blog shares with you simple curiosities, facts, and general knowledge from different areas of science, art, etc… Our main purpose is to make you realise the beauty of knowing. With understandable yet intriguing and insightful articles we will attempt to make knowledge easy, fun and universal. In one sentence, as Einstein puts it, "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
A PhD in engineering that loves to train his body. He teaches math and in math, theories are disapproved with counterexamples. So I think it’s safe to say that he is the counterexample to the myth that an exercised body means less intelligence!
What would you do if you realized your math teacher was actually a super successful – and super attractive – male model? Because that’s exactly what happened to University College London student Arief Azli, who (like any college kid) then shared his discovery on Facebook.
“That moment when you realized your maths lecturer is one of the top designer model,” Azli wrote in a post comparing two photos of his teacher, Pietro Boselli: One of Boselli at the whiteboard, papers in the hand; the other of him … not wearing very much at all.
In this days, we need to be motivated. People are living stressful moments with no time to appreciate life. We often forget others and get to a point of being machines. We keep doing what we think we have to do for assuring our wealth. In spite of this we don’t feel well with ourselves.Actually as we untangle our ties we happen to face sorrow.
Not all of us are able to admit or even ackowledge this changes. However myriad of studies have found that we need to be linked to the world arround us, we have to find shared values in others and only this can make us living. Quoting Alan Watts
“I don’t know who I am unless I know who you are. And you don’t know who you are unless you know who I am.”
Don’t filter the world, by filtering it in the way it convenes you, you are distorsing reality. The world will never be the way you want it to be so you have always to make an effort to change what is wrong.When you stop trying and you trick yourself into believing that it isn’t your duty to help others… you automatically stop being an human. To be human is to share humanitarian help, is to strengthen your relations with others, is to dream, is to prevent what is wrong and whenever you don’t do this you are being inhuman. Alan Watts also said:
“The more you give it away the more it comes back.”
We are empathy beings which means that when we see someone happy we share their happiness, when we see someone suffering we feel that suffer, when we see someone loving we feel that loving and so forth. Even thought we have this mechanism in our organism we forgot how to use it because we repressed it. When this happen, when you arrive to this state of being you stop feeling. You can have children and you won’t feel anything for them, you can have your soul-mate with you and you won’t feel nothing… This is the one and only reason for divorces, for depression and for everything that makes you feel miserable.

“The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can’t let yourself be beat because of lack of effort.” – Michael Jordan
I never comment here because I want to give you the hypothesis of understand how the quote works for you. Everybody has a different story so I hope you understand how this quote relates to your personal life. Just giving a key word, the word game can be seen as life… I hope it makes you sense in some way 🙂
I totally support the Joshua Wong’s demand for universal suffrage! Joshua Wong is the leader of the “Umbrella Revolution” fights for a better world. He is a hero and for that reason I have to share this summing video.
He fights for the world in which I want to live in. 😀 A world made of freedom, knowledge and reason. He wants a better China, he urges for the truth and for freedom.
I have seen this video some weeks ago, however I never shared it in this blog… Owing to the fact that It takes only a minute and for all the other reasons I can imagine it diserves to be widely shared so I decided to post it. I hope you like it and that it makes you reflect! 🙂
Procrastinators, you’ve been warned — a new study suggests that students who turn in homework at the last minute get worse grades.
Two professors at the Warwick Business School in the United Kingdom report that submitting assignments just before they’re due corresponded with, at worst, a five-percent drop in grades.
Researchers David Arnott and Scott Dacko looked at the final assignments from 504 first-year students and 273 third-year students in marketing classes in the U.K., where papers are graded by marks out of 100.
Of the 777 students involved, 86.1 percent waited until the last 24 hours to turn in work, earning an average score of 64.04, compared to early submitters’ average of 64.32 — roughly equivalent to a ‘B’ grade.
But the average score for the most part continued to drop by the hour, and those who turned in the assignment at the last minute had the lowest average…
Zak Ebrahim is the son of a terrorist. Phyllis Rodriguez lost her son on 9/11. In an inspiring conversation, the two share their personal histories of lives devastated by violence — and rebuilt by tolerance.
Zak Ebrahim’s father was convicted of plotting the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Phyllis Rodriguez’s son, Greg, worked in the World Trade Center. While Greg happened to have left the building the day of the bombing in 1993, he was killed on September 11, 2001.
Both Ebrahim and Rodriguez have seen their families upended by terrorism, in very different ways. And yet, each of them delivers the same powerful message: that peace, tolerance and empathy are the only way forward.
