Finding the Higgs Particle, Decoding Light and Confounding Science

2012 is the year of discovery and change which will revolutionise the way we see our world and will prove the limitations of scientific theory, hinting at the wonders of the infinite and the unknown.
The matter in our Universe, when it was young, was distributed and shaped by pressure waves, but not dark matter which was unaffected by these waves: by decoding the first ripples in the light, and the dark, of the Universe using sophisticated scientific measurements, researchers say we will be able to know what stars and galaxies and other objects were present when the Universe was just forming itself billions of years ago. What an amazing thought.
The science of cosmology is like so much of modern science based on fact, proven theory and possibilities, and matter. It allows for the unknown but wishes the unknown to become evidence, and except in the rare enlightened science …

Taking Luck Viral: Internal/External Social Marketing for Businesses Via Games of Chance

Colors flash brightly in a spinning circle. Slowly, the noise of the crowd lessens as the clicking of the wheel grows slower, ending with an “oooh!” as the prize is revealed. Everyone laughs and cheers. “Hey, I just won a free dessert!”
“I just won a t-shirt!”
“I won two days vacation!”
“I won a car!”
“I got a mug!”
“I get a 50{d7041c4e6afa026de24506851a219ca5610a5f906e2b398ac18672c13da8fb92} discount!”
Granted, most people won’t be nearly as excited about the mug as they would about the car, but on some level the initial excitement – before the prize – is the same. As is the thought that, perhaps next time, that mug will stay on the table, and they’ll drive off in the car. They’ll remember it every time they look at that mug.
Games of chance are becomingly increasingly popular as both internal and external marketing avenues for businesses. Part of the attraction is …

The Joy Of Smartphone Games

Knowing that the electronic market brings more and more complex and expensive gaming consoles on a daily basis and that they are not always easy to purchase I want to remind you of the good old mobile phone games and the ease of playing one on one of the most popular handheld devices we know.
The mobile phones always tried to offer an entertaining part to the devices aside from the utility features. The manufacturers started introducing games in the mobile phones menus almost ten years ago, because they knew that the phone should offer a more vast and entertaining experience than a simple communication device. I am absolutely sure that you played Snake at least ten times in your life.
Throughout the years the mobile phone games also became more complex and more fun to play in a parallel growth with the smartphone technology but the advantage of these …

Using A Subliminal Message To Improve Your Life

Subliminal message is all about brain power, contrary to what people think the brain has the capability of doing a lot than what we already know. Telekinesis, tissue regeneration, and flight among other phenomenal wonders are some of the things the film industry, creative writers and comic experts have tried to come up with. Science has, however, gone another way on this concept. The fact is that there is no concrete evidence on the human brain doing all that. Generally, it is said that people use ten percent of their brain power; the question of the other ninety percent is still under exploration.
Subliminal message, based on the subliminal technology, endeavors to explain the concept of the brain towards manipulation of the body’s particle system. Before we sit down to take a big test, there are voices in our minds, sometimes these voices argue and leave us confused. The point …

Early Intervention At Secondary School To Increase University Enrollments In Computing And Science

Globally, the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are competing for enrolments in universities with an increasing range of options, to their detriment. The Australian Mathematical Science Institute revealed that basic mathematics was growing in popularity among secondary students to the detriment of intermediate or advanced studies. This has resulted in fewer universities offering higher mathematics courses, and subsequently there are reduced graduates in mathematics. Educators are therefore continuously looking for innovative ways to attract students to STEM university courses.
First, an examination of causes for the low interest in STEM university programs revealed the following: An October 2011 report from the Georgetown University’s Centre on Education and the Workforce (CEW) reported that American science graduates viewed traditional science careers as “too socially isolating.” In addition, a liberal-arts or business education was often regarded as more flexible in a fast-changing job market. Secondary students had the perception that computing …

Grow Plants in Total Darkness

Some people claim that it’s possible to grow plants in total darkness. If you’d like to see for yourself, you’ll find all the information you need right here. Think what a great science project this could make for you or someone you know.
To give you a general overview of the experiment, a seed is placed in a container along with two metal plates. The container is placed in a box or somewhere light can’t reach it. Wires from the plates go to a plate outside the house and to an electrical ground inside the house. Energy gathered from the outside plate travels down the wire to the seed where it causes the seed to sprout and grow in the absence of sunlight.
We’ll be using seeds in this case, but you can also try using young or mature plants as well. Just know that as the size of the …
