Cosmic Engineering (Part 1) by BurtJordaan on October 19th, 2012, 7:26 am
I'm an engineering microbe (EM), living on a spinning ball, which is part of a bearing deep inside the cosmic machine. We call this ball Earth. To explore my machine, I would love to get off this ball in order to get a better view. I found that pretty difficult, maybe even impossible, so the only thing that seems feasible is to roam around on the surface of the ball.

Scientist microbes (SMs) tell me that I would need a pretty high speed to get off this ball, never mind getting to other parts of the ball bearing or the machine. I told them not to worry, we EMs can design rockets and if we can get it to burn for long time, we will easily reach the speed of light. Look here, I told my SM friend, back of the envelope calculations say that if I build a simple one "g" rocket engine that burns for 1 year, it will travel just faster than the speed of light.

Wait a minute, my friend said – you seem to forget Einstein’s special relativity that says things cannot reach the speed of lig...

Lawdy lawdy, it's hotter than a June bride in a feather bed here in Indiana! You just can't read Kierkegaard in hot weather.

mouth emerging from the primordial ooze of sleep... by Char0n on June 19th, 2014, 6:53 am
ultimately you are the variable of an identity of meaning... the nexus of the intake and the crux of the output... its really not about the 'illusion of choice' its more about smiling for the love of your life despite wanting to escape and break both of your hearts in some sardonic and elaborate plot to self destruct in such fashion that they, them, the root of your paranoia, change because of...
cats typically aren't big enough to keep you warm at night unless its a lion or tiger or panther or cougar or unless its a warm night... then you can sleep with the sheet all akimbo to your grains... the way a vestment drapes across a cross at holy ghost tent revivals and in small chambers off to one corner of a church during holy days in the calender of tradition...
you can dream and be unaware that you are dreaming... and even though the hodgepodge and anarchay of them is unbelievable, if you don't remember them as the work of an unconscious mind, they will eat up meaning in your life... in short...

Efficiency and Quality of Medical Tourism Industry Booming 2016 by kksingha on July 6th, 2016, 4:11 am
Over the past two decades, plenty of telehealth applications have been successfully implemented. Applications such as the transfer of digital photos and patient records and the use of medical video endoscopes to monitor patients’ physical examination have demonstrated great results. For many players, the introduction of telehealth in the global medical tourism market has been a profitable strategy.

Telehealth improves the efficiency, customer service, and quality of medical tourism services via enhanced coordination of care between patients and care providers. According to Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global medical tourism market is expected to exhibit a 17.90% CAGR from 2013 to 2019. A rise in the elderly population and the rising number of uninsured people are some of the factors expected to propel the global medical tourism market.

TMR experts answers a few questions with respect to the global medical tourism market:

Q. How would t...

Masters dissertation. by Nick on May 5th, 2009, 9:39 am
The deadline for my masters dissertation is rapidly approaching. I am currently trying to go through my draft in order to tart it up and make it into a thirty page rollercoaster of emotions rather than the dull chronicle of what is meant to be a year's worth of work that it currently is. I wish that had I not been so lazy and actually managed to make a decent measurement before the Easter holiday (or during it) as was planned. I then could have spent more time writing it up until I was happy with it.

Getting it out of the way will be good though. In a mere 11 hours I'll be one step closer to graduating.
