HumanHints, today ‘Shaping The Fabric of SpaceTime – Zero Point Energy’

There are many sound scientific theories that physicists choose to ignore in order to make their science cleaner and more tidy. Instead of expanding science by pursuing new ideas, they pretend that certain phenomena don’t exist. A proven theory should not be shunned and ignored in the name of simplicity.

Today is Tuesday, April 15, the 105th day of 2014. There are 260 days left in the year.

Aruba’s Social Column “Bati Bleki” by Rona Coster April 14th, 2014

Bati Bleki, April 14th, 2014STREETCAR NAMED MALFUNCTION. Besides the unbearable screeching, our streetcar also suffers from malfunction when it comes to the end of mainstreet, a dead-end, since it cannot loop around, then passengers have to disembark while the chairs get flipped over. I understand it is not a major engineering snafu. It’s a fixable challenge. Then the street furniture will be installed and the fountains turned on. Rene Herde is the official in charge. I have confidence in him, but perhaps he has too many projects to oversee and his prioritizer is malfunctioning.

HumanHints, today ‘Control Your Anger’ – Consider The Consequences

Yesterday we talked about being aware of the consequences of our actions, using particle accelerators as an example. Great theory, but its useless if we can’t apply it to our daily lives when we are in dire need of help. In every conscious moment, we must remain fully aware that every action we take has a direct effect on others and on ourselves. When we keep this in mind, we will chose our actions far more consciously.

HumanHints, today ‘Particle Accelerators’ Part 1 – Theory

It is absurd that scientists smash subatomic particles together, to see what’s inside. Imagine if aliens started smashing people into each other, to see what comes out. They’d see an arm, a leg, heads crushed in different ways, and wonder how these parts fit together to form a person. They would curiously note that the pieces couldn’t sustain life when they are separate from the whole.

Today is Friday, April 11, the 101st day of 2014. There are 264 days left in the year.

Tropical diseases – an article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

ARUBA – When planning your holiday abroad the logistics of the trip are usually taking up all the time and attention.  However, what you also should keep in mind is how to stay healthy abroad. Your first line of defense against tropical diseases and other maladies is protecting yourself. The three main ways that disease is spread are: contaminated food, contaminated water, and last but not least bites from mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas and other insects. Before packing your suitcase you should consult one of the specialized websites or your travel agency to inform you about what current health risks may be at hand at your destination. You may need to get a prescription or even a vaccination as a precaution.

HumanHints, today ‘Patterns Of Reaction’

Every day, we are relentlessly bombarded by external stimuli. Our reaction to the stimulus defines who we are and what our lives are like. In theory, we can change our lives by changing our reaction to daily stimuli, by changing out attitudes toward our lives. Its not what happens to us, it’s how we react to what happens, that defines who we are. As we grow, our reactions to different types of input first become automatic, then completely unconscious.
