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."
We love TED, it shares new ideas based on the activity of renown scientists, economists, artists, etc… It makes knowledge more accessible so we are proud to everyday share with you a TED video. Hope you enjoy it!
I decided to put here a TED-Ed video, I know that it isn’t a regular TED, however this video is special and takes only 7 min.!
In our academic life, as well as in our daily life, we’ve always found things that we couldn’t understand. And probably in most of the cases we entrust in others to decipher those things because we are not able to do it… In this brilliant talk Adam Savage, a former co-host in Discovery Channel series “MythBusters” and “Unchained Reaction”, attempts to debunk this assertion. From Eratosthenes to Richard Feynman, he presents us knowledge that started from simple ideas that everyone can discover from their experience.
“Beautiful Equations” is an extraordinary documentary about some of the most known equations and how did they changed the world. This documentary produced by BBC takes us in a journey through this wonderful world of mathematics.
You may think that math isn’t for you, however the main role is played by an artist and writer (Matt Collings)… This means that every equation is explained in order for he understand therefore we can also understand. I had a lot of fun watching this documentary and learnt a lot from a wide range of subjects. I just had to share this after posting a mathematical post :p Have a nice day! 😀
I love to find interesting stuff and share my ideas and what I’ve just discovered with everyone. However, I need to study for the university otherwise I won’t achieve academical success (which is my priority right now). For that reason I won’t be able to do posts everyday and I may just do them on the weekends.
What is changing…
“Week Theme!” is out! Every now and then I will do a detailed article on something I found interesting… “Daily Knowledge!” will stop being daily and become a “thrice a week knowledge”. I will use the twitter more often so be attentive to it!
In spite of this changes I will continue fully committed to this project, I want to change the world. I want to choose the world on which I’m going to live. That world doesn’t need to be perfect but it has to be made of knowledge. A world where bigotry doesn’t exist. Where everybody has access to information and most importantly the means for understanding it. A world made by people who endeavour for becoming better everyday. In a world like this, religion wouldn’t reign our lives… Instead they would be ruled by our common sense of morals and ethics. I might be just a dreamer but if none dreamt the world would continue spinning and our lives would have no meaning whatsoever.
PERSUE YOUR DREAMS AND MAKE THEM TRUE! IMAGINE WHO YOU WANT TO BE AND START CHANGING WHO YOU ARE!
It took awhile to do it but it has finally ended, a lot of research and passion for knowledge were the key ingredients for this magnificent result.
We learn so much and share what we learnt. Now you know about the sun and what is interesting about him.
How the Sun sees you!– Our first post devoted to elucidating what is the electromagnetic spectrum and the electromagnetic waves released by the sun. After this brief explanation we saw how infrared sees us.
Sun exposure can make you live longer!– Have you ever heard about the sun’s benefits? Here we depict the most interesting finds about the curative values of the sun. Multiple Sclerosis and the reduction of hypertension and cardiovascular disease. If you haven’t seen it’s a must so be sure to click in the link!
