Playing games phenomena

Today nobody would argue that gaming has become a huge part of our culture. People are enthralled with video games no matter what age they are and that’s reality. According to gaming industry statistics for 2014 the average age of a gamer falls in the 30-35 age range within the U.S. and over three-fourths of all gamers play for more than one hour each week making gaming a part of their daily lives. We see that the passion gamers have had ever since gaming burst onto the scene just a few decades ago. 46% of them play games on mobile devices, and 71% use dedicated gaming devices. However despite discussions are still continuing around the theme they can’t make a dent in the exponential progression of gaming popularity. Gaming market shows an extraordinary growth last years and that’s no wonder as well.

Why do we love play games? Science has also tried to find the answer on this question. Experts say usually that people play games because they experience emotions that are closely related to the main factors of happiness, enjoyment and fun because gaming involves many fun-creating elements and so on. Why do we love play games? Actually there are so many different definitions at the point but I’d like to focus on some of them.

The really one I love the most about gaming is a whole new world every time you start to play. I guess this is very important. Every time we start to play games we discover a new world, we learn to understand it and try to win of course. Games give players the option of playing as a “good guy” or a “bad guy” then you can turn into a hero to fight a villains.

It is anticipated that future growth in mobile games will involve more and more multiplayer gaming options. Forbes Magazine notes that ‘The future of gaming is in user-choice’.

Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons is True or Not?

“Before there were any humans on Pallene, the story goes that a battle was fought between the gods and the giants. Traces of the giants’ demise continue to be seen to this day, whenever torrents swell with rain and excessive water breaks their banks and floods the fields. They say that even now in gullies and ravines the people discover bones of immeasurable enormity, like men’s carcasses but far bigger.”
Greek historian Solinus, c. AD 200

You probably have stumbled into reports about destruction of thousands of giant human skeletons in by Smithsonian institute in early 1900s and ostensibly they admitted that. It was reported that a US Supreme Court ruling has forced the Smithsonian institution to release classified papers dating from the early 1900? bringing new elements to this case.

«There has been a major cover up by western archaeological institutions since the early 1900?s to make us believe that America was first colonized by Asian peoples migrating through the Bering Strait 15,000 years ago, when in fact, there are hundreds of thousands of burial mounds all over America which the Natives claim were there a long time before them, and that show traces of a highly developed civilization, complex use of metal alloys and where giant human skeleton remains are frequently found but still go unreported in the media and news outlets» he explains.

«The public release of these documents will help archaeologists and historians to reevaluate current theories about human evolution and help us greater our understanding of the mound builder culture in America and around the world» explains AIAA director, Hans Guttenberg. «Finally, after over a century of lies, the truth about our giant ancestors shall be revealed to the world» he acknowledges, visibly satisfied by the court ruling.

The documents are scheduled to be released in 2015 and the operation will be coordinated by an independent scientific organization to assure political neutrality.

But now they say that Smithsonian admits destroying giant human skeletons is fiction! OK, admits is fiction bun not the story about giant human skeletons.

Are They Real Or Fake? Waiting for the next scientists reveals.

The home we’ve ever known

We succeeded taking that picture (Voyager 1, in 1990 (NASA)from deep space), and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.

Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity — in all this vastness — there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us. It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

God Particle

You have probably head about Higgs boson. Scientists working at the world’s largest atom smasher say they have enough evidence of the long-sought-after Higgs boson. What is wxactly Higgs boson and how does it work?

There is a gist of the standard model, developed in the early 1970s: The Higgs boson appeared 13.7 billion years ago in the chaos of the Big Bang and turned the flying debris into galaxies, stars and planets. Our entire universe is made of 12 different matter particles and four forces. Among those 12 particles, you’ll encounter six quarks and six leptons. Quarks make up protons and neutrons, while members of the lepton family include the electron and the electron neutrino, its neutrally charged counterpart. Scientists think that leptons and quarks are indivisible; that you can’t break them apart into smaller particles. Along with all those particles, the standard model also acknowledges four forces: gravity, electromagnetic, strong and weak. Here is the picture found online trying to get illustrated explanation of the subject.

As theories go, the standard model has been very effective, aside from its failure to fit in gravity. Armed with it, physicists have predicted the existence of certain particles years before they were verified empirically. Unfortunately, the model still has another missing piece – the Higgs boson.

“We think the Higgs boson is a manifestation of the fact that the universe is filled with a force that we haven’t been able to detect yet that gives other particles mass,” Lykken told NPR. “It exists for a billionth of a billionth of a billionth of a second, or something like that, and then falls apart into other particles.”

Thus, scientists are in a bit of a quagmire, according to the AP. While they appear to have enough evidence to report the existence of the “God particle,” they still hedge on whether to report “a discovery.” It’s a fine line, indeed, but one that scientists will likely continue to debate.

The Elegant Universe

In Einstein’s day, the strong and weak forces had not yet been discovered, but he found the existence of even two distinct forces—gravity and electromagnetism—deeply troubling. Einstein did not accept that nature is founded on such an extravagant design. This launched his 30-year voyage in search of the so-called unified field theory that he hoped would show that these two forces are really manifestations of one grand underlying principle. This quixotic quest isolated Einstein from the mainstream of physics, which, understandably, was far more excited about delving into the newly emerging framework of quantum mechanics. He wrote to a friend in the early 1940s, “I have become a lonely old chap who is mainly known because he doesn’t wear socks and who is exhibited as a curiosity on special occasions.”

Einstein was simply ahead of his time. More than half a century later, his dream of a unified theory has become the Holy Grail of modern physics. And a sizeable part of the physics and mathematics community is becoming increasingly convinced that string theory may provide the answer. From one principle—that everything at its most microscopic level consists of combinations of vibrating strands—string theory provides a single explanatory framework capable of encompassing all forces and all matter.

String theory proclaims, for instance, that the observed particle properties—that is, the different masses and other properties of both the fundamental particles and the force particles associated with the four forces of nature (the strong and weak nuclear forces, electromagnetism, and gravity)—are a reflection of the various ways in which a string can vibrate. Just as the strings on a violin or on a piano have resonant frequencies at which they prefer to vibrate—patterns that our ears sense as various musical notes and their higher harmonics—the same holds true for the loops of string theory. But rather than producing musical notes, each of the preferred mass and force charges are determined by the string’s oscillatory pattern. The electron is a string vibrating one way, the up-quark is a string vibrating another way, and so on.

Far from being a collection of chaotic experimental facts, particle properties in string theory are the manifestation of one and the same physical feature: the resonant patterns of vibration—the music, so to speak—of fundamental loops of string. The same idea applies to the forces of nature as well. Force particles are also associated with particular patterns of string vibration and hence everything, all matter and all forces, is unified under the same rubric of microscopic string oscillations—the “notes” that strings can play.

The Sun "Announced" Global Cataclysm

Canadian scientists reported about the sun intensive nuclear fusion. The researchers recorded the acceleration of fusion reaction of light nuclei into heavier nuclei, which occurs at ultra-high temperature and accompanied with a huge amounts of energy.
According to scientific concepts, the main source of energy of the sun and other stars is nuclear fusion reaction. In terrestrial conditions, this reaction carries out like the explosion of the hydrogen bomb. Such solar nuclear fusion links to the upcoming a new cycle of stars. Traditionally, the solar cycle lasts 11 years, As a result of increasing activity of the star, the energy generated by the Sun, will bring next few years the splash of global warming.
The last solar activity was recorded in 1998 and accompanied with unusual daily limit temperature.
By the way at the beginning of April this year, American scientists from American Academy of Sciences (NASA) figured out a hypothetical scenario entitled “Threats to Space Weather: social and economic consequences’, where researchers predicted that the “doomsday” will happen on Sept. 22, 2012.
On that day, the study’s authors believe, the sun will be occurred a series of heavy outbreaks. The consequence would be unheard of geomagnetic storms on the planet.
The alarm signal from the satellite observing the Sun has to come to the center of space research in Houston. At the disposal of mankind will be just a few minutes, the researchers said, but all efforts will be futile.
As they say, people will see lights, like the Arctic ones, but much brighter. As far as all power transformers will come down only in the U.S. in 90 seconds after the sun’s impact will be destroyed up 300 key transformers then more than 130 million people would be without electricity will.
Nobody dies in that very moment, just shutting water, petrol station, oil and gas pipelines. Independent power systems will work for three days then also stop. But later, as a result, millions people will die because of the global paralysis of the economy.

Because It's There

WHY did you want to climb Mount Everest?” This question was asked of George Leigh Mallory, who was with both expeditions toward the summit of the world’s highest mountain, “Because it’s there” – said George Mallory.

If a returned explorer is properly polite and becomingly modest, his manner will give you the impression that he has done nothing that any earnest and industrious young man might not get up and do. For instance. Mr. Mallory will tell you that his real job is teaching English literature and history at the Charter House School for boys. He was in the habit of spending every August in the Alps, and when he was asked to go with the Everest expedition, he thought he’d do it “for a change”. His chief interest is in writing, and he had a book on Boswell published a few years ago. He could tell you a lot about Boswell if you weren’t so obviously interested in mountains.

Be not beguiled, O armchair explorer! Stick to the comparative security of your subway strap. For this quiet young man’s casual comment raises the ghost of such a tremendous adventure as the fireside mind can scarce conceive: of crawling along knife edges in the teeth of a bitter wind; of chopping footholds up the face of a wall of ice; of moving on where each step may very reasonably be expected to be the last, and yet taking that step, and the next, and the next after that; of pushing up and up in spite of frozen fingers and toes, in spite of laboring heart and bursting lungs, until death is certain just ahead, and then turning back just as steadily, to wait for the next opportunity”
(“New York Times” 18.03.1923)

George Leigh Mallory was the only climber to take part in all three of the British pioneering expeditions to Mount Everest in 1921 and 1922. Born in 1886, he died a few days short of his 38th birthday, while making a summit attempt with his young companion, Andrew Irvine. Mallory decided on one last attempt before the expedition left for home, but he set off up the slopes of the North Col too soon after fresh snow and a massive avalanche swept away nine men, killing seven of them, all Sherpa. The loss of “these brave men” left him crushed with guilt for they were, he felt, “ignorant of mountain dangers, like children in our care.” He knew that no one would criticize him if he refused to go, but he felt it a compulsion.

UFO Files On-Line

You can start your own UFO research right now, to discover the history of government UFO investigations and find out where the new files fit in. So as it was reported earlier, the UK’s Ministry of Defence has agreed to open its secret files on UFO sightings over the UK.

Now you can download these files contained a wide range of UFO-related documents covering the years 1978–2002 including numerous UFO sightings as well as Winston Churchill’s views on UFOs. You can find out more about lights in the sky over Waterloo Bridge, near misses by pilots, crop circles – and what the UK government thought of it all – this is the place to start. The files are in PDF format.

Facts and Myths about Brains.

Recently The Daily Mail has published very fascinating facts and common myths about our grey matter, I mean our brains of course. These facts and myths have been taken from a new book by two leading neuroscientists Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang. The information is interesting and sometimes really surprised.

FACT: You can’t tickle yourself
When a doctor examines a ticklish patient, they place one of the patient’s hands over their own to prevent the tickling sensation.
Why does this work? Because no matter how ticklish you may be, you can’t tickle yourself.
This is because your brain focuses on what’s going on in the outside world — to prevent important signals from being drowned out in the endless buzz of sensations caused by your own actions.
For instance, this means you’re unlikely to notice the texture of your socks, but you would feel a tap on the shoulder.
The patient doesn’t feel the tickling because his brain thinks it’s his own hand doing the action.
FACT: Looking at a photograph is harder than playing chess
When computer scientists first began trying to write programmes to mimic human abilities, they found it relatively-easy to get computers to follow logic and do complex maths — such as those required in chess moves — but very hard to get them to figure out what they were seeing in a visual image.

Today’s best computer programmes can beat a grand master, but any toddler can beat the top programmes when it comes to making sense of the visual world.

One reason for this is the difficulty in identifying individual objects.

You only see this ambiguity when you see something briefly enough to misidentify it — like when that rock in the middle of the dark road suddenly turns out to be a neighbour’s cat.

MYTH: You only ever use about 10 per cent of your brain
Although half the world’s population thinks this, in reality you use your whole brain every day.
But for the myth to stick around for so long, it must have been saying something that we really want to hear.

In fact, its impressive persistence may depend on its optimistic message: “If we use only 10 per cent of our brains normally, think what we could do if we could use even a tiny bit of that other 90 per cent.”

The truth is, studies of brain activity show that even simple tasks actually produce activity throughout the entire brain.
