- Discussion about scientific proof of theories related to The Big Bang Theory. They found gravitational waves that indicate occurrences moments after the big bang.
This is what it’s like to find out your thirty years of research on the Big Bang theory have finally paid off. Watch as Stanford professor and founding father of the cosmic inflation theory, Andrei Linde, gets a surprise visit from assistant professor So Chao-Lin Kuo with direct evidence that his theory had been proved correct.
- Discussion about whether people can “believe” in both Creationism and The Big Bang Theory.
- Discussion about the new series Cosmos, with Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
- Discussion about reasons why mentally ill people should be given e-cigs.
The history of psychiatric hospitals is one of abuse, neglect and copious amounts of cigarette smoking. Until the 1970s, hundreds of thousands of mentally ill people were warehoused for decades in state mental asylums. There was typically little to do, and going to the supervised smoking room every 15 minutes became an “activity” to break the tedium. Cigarettes rewarded compliant behavior or were taken away to punish noncompliance. The scene from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest played out daily in hospitals nationwide.
That almost 90% of people diagnosed with schizophrenia smoke—despite tobacco’s well-known adverse health consequences—is a testament to the addictiveness of nicotine. But it is also evidence of nicotine’s power to chemically quell anxiety, depression and other upset. (The prevalence of smoking among people with bipolar and panic disorder, depression, anxiety and PTSD is also high.)
Hospital staff have long observed how smoking markedly improves the negative symptoms of mental illness, such as lack of motivationand pleasure, reduced emotional expression and deficits in attention and concentration.
- Are addictions to nicotine or caffeine mental illnesses?
- Discussion about “secret Gmail” features that people don’t know about.
Let’s be real: Most of us are pretty dependent on our email. I mean, don’t you guys often wake up to an inbox that looks like this?
No?? Remember: No matter how full your inbox is, somebody else always has a crazier one than you do. And even if you think you know everything there is to know about Gmail, the email service near and dear to our hearts, there’s always a trick or two you may not have heard of. We’ve compiled the seven best Gmail secrets below. From deleting your entire inbox in one click (we clearly could use this one) to tracking which sites are giving out your contact info, check out these handy tips:

- Discussion about managing large email inboxes.
- Heit tells a story about reading the book “The Man Who Never Washed His Dishes” in grade school.
- Discussion about procrastination.
- Discussion about how to unsend emails in Gmail.
- Discussion about a billboard in Peru that filters water for people.
This is nothing less than a revolution generation of water from nothing but thin air (and of course the most innovative advertising technique ever!). UTECH designed a billboard that can convert atmospheric humidity into drinking water through reverse osmosis in Lima, Peru where water shortage is one of the biggest problems. Peru only gets 2 inches of rainfall every year but has an extraordinarily high humidity, which is how this technological trick led to happy faces filling buckets of water and showering under the water dispenser below the billboard!!
