How a Satellite Dish Works

A satellite dish is an antenna designed to focus on a specific broadcast source. The standard dish consists of a parabolic (bowl-shaped) surface and a central feed horn. A controller sends it through the horn, and the dish focuses the signal into a relatively narrow beam. A narrow beam is generated as the dish reflects energy from the feed horn. The dish on the receiving end can only receive information; it cannot transmit information. The receiving dish works in the exact opposite way of the transmitter. When a beam hits the curved dish, the parabola shape reflects the radio signal inward onto a particular point, just like a concave mirror focuses light onto a particular point. The curved dish focuses …

Tis The Season Not To Be Jolly

During the months of November to February, the days start getting shorter and colder, and the nights longer and darker. Climate changes seem to affect many people and they just can’t understand why they tend to feel gloomy and miserable. This mood disorder is called winter depression, or Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). According to Norman E. Rosenthal, the doctor who coined the term SAD in 1984, winter depression has a sound medical basis that involves changes in the body’s mood centers brought on by shorter daylight hours and a lack of sunlight. Most depressive illness sufferers experience a sense of utter isolation and loneliness. But the fact that many people go through the same grumpiness during this time of the …

The New Biology of Health — The Way To Perpetual Health?

Just what is the “New Biology of Health?” And who’s the snake oil salesperson promoting certain products as the cure-all for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease? Does it work? Simply put, the “New Biology of Health” is about maintaining your body’s acid/alkaline balance or pH level. The ideal pH level, as measured by saliva, urine, or blood tests, is slightly alkaline. Dr. Robert O. Young, cellular biologist and author of the “pH Miracle,” teaches that our American lifestyles and diets destroy cellular health. Stress, the environment, and especially acid foods (almost everything you eat except for certain fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts) force your body’s cells into unhealthy, acidic states. And, the state of your cells determines your overall health. …

2 Ways to Start Burning fat Quickly

1. Start Exercising first thing in the morning. As soon as you wake up in the morning workout for at least 30min to an hour.

Your Body is a Map of Your Consciousness

Your Body Is A Map of Your Consciousness – by Martin Brofman, PhD. Everything begins with your consciousness. Everything that happens in your life, and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. Your consciousness is who you are, your experience of Being.

When these decisions leave you with residual stress, you experience the stress as if in your physical body. We know that stress creates symptoms. The interesting question is, “Which stress creates which symptoms?” When we are able to quantify this process, we are then able to see the body as a …
