Security Programs How do you keep your computer and data safe? Here, we'll tell you about the recommended programs and (hopefully) how to steer away from the bad stuff. We'll post referrals to respected online sites where you can get solid advice. Moderator patermann
Trend Micro If your computer has had the misfortune of being infected, many online security sites will recommend an online virus scan to ensure that your system is clean. Not all are created equal. Some will tell you where an infection is and some will actually attempt to clean the parasite. See why this is one scanner I highly recommend. Moderator patermann
What The Bleep Do We Know!? What do you know? How do you know it? Are you really sure about that. One thing seems certain - things are not always what they seem to be. Find videos in the forum and thoughts about the movie of the same name.
Quantum Touch "Quantum-Touch appears to be the first technique that may truly allow us all to become healers."
-- C. Norman Shealy, M.D. Ph.D Founding President of the American Holistic Medical Association
Beyond Man's Reasoning ... was a working title for a work in progress of a collection of short stories I had written and planned to write starting in the 1960's, most of which were heavily influenced by Rod Serling's "The Twilight Zone" "Truth is stranger than fiction", we are told; the question, "Does life imitate art, or does Art imitate Life?", has been raised. Feel free to explore these possibilities here.
Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (Community TSC & D2OL™) "The Rothberg Institute For Childhood Diseases is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for children suffering from Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC). We operate at the intersection of molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, and nanotechnology."
The granddaddy of distributed computing (and still one of the most popular) - I discovered back in 2000 while searching for screensavers. Carl Sagan was a force behind this study. "SETI@home is a scientific experiment in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)."
You can participate by running a free program that downloads and analyzes radio telescope data. Moderator patermann
"The goal of Cosmology@Home is to search for the model that best describes our Universe and to find the range of models that agree with the available astronomical and particle physics data. In order to achieve this goal, participants in Cosmology@Home will compute the observable predictions of millions of theoretical models with different parameter combinations."
"Galaxies are ever evolving systems that can provide insight into how the universe came to be what it is now.
In 1994 Rodrigo Ibata discovered that the Milkyway was currently merging with another galaxy: the Sagittarius (Sgr) Dwarf Ellipsoidal Galaxy. Due to its relative small size compared to the Milkyway, the Sgr dwarf is being tidally disrupted - being ripped apart and drawn out into long tidal streams. This tidal debris gives us a unique insight into our Galaxy."
"We live in a world full of molecules: Molecules constitute our bodies and reactions between molecules are the essential phenomena behind all life processes. We breath, eat and wear molecules every day."
"Rosetta@home needs your help (by running the program on your computer while you don't need it) to determine the 3-dimensional shapes of proteins in research that may ultimately lead to finding cures for some major human diseases (such as HIV, Malaria, Cancer, and Alzheimer's)."
We are pleased to announce that this experiment and the documentaries 'Meltdown' and 'Climate Change: Britain Under Threat' associated with the experiment have been nominated for an award in the Interactivity category of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards.
One Minute Shift "It’s easy to get lost in the complexity of our fast paced lives. We’ve created a very simple solution for delivering important kernels of wisdom – a minute of higher awareness in the midst of your busy day. We hope these nuggets of inspiration help to expand your mind, open your heart and shift your daily life!"
America Freedom to Fascism Determined to find the law that requires American citizens to pay income tax, producer Aaron Russo ("The Rose," "Trading Places") set out on a journey to find the evidence. This film which is neither left, nor right-wing is a startling examination of government.
Alex Jones Controversial! Outspoken! Brash! .... These are just a few ways to describe this radio personality from Texas. However I doubt "boring" would be another. This man dares to go where few can; speaks about things few want to.
Randy Pausch Randy who? He received national attention after appearing on Oprah. There is a tradition in his college that you give a "Last Lecture" as if you know you are going to die and there won't be another. In Randy's case it also happened to be a fact of life.
