Human Diaphragm by nofools on January 11th, 2012, 3:52 pm
Diaphragm is composed of skeletal muscles and reaches the lower-most part of the rib cage. Diaphragm is the structure that separates the abdominal and thoracic cavities that is made up of the heart, ribs, and lungs and is also responsible for the respiratory operations.

Your diaphragm may be divided into three parts: the sternal, costal, and lumbar parts. The sternal part of the diaphragm consists of the two muscular slips from the xiphoid process' back. Conversely, the costal part integrates with the transverse muscle of abdomen. It comprises of the cartilages and nearby parts of the six ribs located at the thoracic cavity. Lastly, the lumbar section of the diaphragm consists of lumbocostal arches and the crura. The diaphragm also has various openings in it to allow the passage of some other parts of the body between the thorax and the abdomen. There are three major openings within the diaphragm. These are the aortic, oesophageal, and inferior vena caval.

The diaphragm is an important...

OK, back to Alice's mission. Her plan has changed a little and she will now first stop in the region of Alpha-C (AC) for some observations. It is way too late to achieve the rocket braking at the original very low (0.075g) acceleration, so Alice asked her INS computer to get them into a 'parking' orbit at a more comfortable 1g retro-burn. Her INS and my trusted spreadsheet 'know' that at -1g, it will take 0.69 years to get the coasting ship to zero velocity relative to Bob, and that it must start to brake 0.2 lyrs (on their rotated map) short of the parking position. At just over 11 years into her mission, Alice comes to rest in Bob's spacetime structure again.

During the 0.69 years of deceleration, Alice's tilted structure has gradually rotated back to align with Bob's structure once again. While their structures were at an angle to each other, space and time were different for them. Here is a summary of the space and time accounting columns:

Realism, Supervenience, and Irresolvable Aesthetic Disputes by Zin5ki on March 26th, 2011, 1:22 pm
By John W. Bender, from The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 54:4, 1996, pp. 371-381.

Amongst Bender's discussion of supervenience and the importance of disagreement amongst ideal critics, two things he says of aesthetic properties strikes one as being of great use to the anti-realist.

Firstly, he mentions that, according to the relational analysis of aesthetic properties, "a work's having an aesthetic property F … is for it to have some set of (other features and relations which makes the work evoke in some relevant class of perceivers or critics certain responses and judgements, including the judgement that it is appropriate to call the work F". (p.371, italics added.)

In order to account for the way in which most are averse to subjectivism, the italicised component of the relational analysis' claim seems intriguing, for it opens up the possibility of a causal relation between an object and i...
