Daylight saving time (DST) – also summer time in British English (see Terminology) – is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon Hudson. Many countries have used it since then; details vary by locationand change occasionally.
Now that we all know what I’m talking about it, I would like to explain to you about certain controversy surrounding the whole issue, and the stake is quite high – human lives. Please, watch the video to find out how daylight saving might kill you.
(Guest article – not by Kamil) There are tons of marketers who "do PPC" advertising, but the percentage who have full understanding of how it works is small. There's a good chance all marketers think about doing it when they're thinking of how they can make more money. But to the uninitiated, it's still remains …Read More →
As human beings we are “doomed” to feel fear every now and then. There will be various bases for it, including financial security, and there’s no way out. Even if you are very wealthy you still have fears, doubts, ups and downs, worries and all sort of “negative” feelings. You cannot get rid of them, but you can balance them using various techniques.
One of the most effective techniques to deal with “bad” feelings is observing your feelings to see them for what they really are, which is nothing more than a body reaction, to which your mind built a story, for example “This is scary” or “Now I’m in trouble”. It’s this story that makes you interpret certain reactions in your body as certain feelings. Fear and pain very often are manifested in the body in exactly the same way as excitement and pleasure. Simply observe your body when you have those feelings, focus on those feelings in the body and turn their volume to the maximum until you see them for what they really are. It might take 10-20 minutes before that happens. Just be patient – stay with it, and the reward will surprise you beyond your belief.
I have been thinking a lot about freedom, and I must admit that I got lost a bit. There are so many aspects to freedom as there are human minds in the world, I guess. You can talk about freedom speech, religion, gathering, expressing yourself, traveling, etc. You can also go to philosophical matters like discussions about whether you can really be free as a human being or is it just an illusion.
In this video I would like to talk about the illusion of freedom that we sometimes have, which was imposed on us by the society and system, and it’s so deeply ingrained that we do not realize it, and even if someone shows it to us, we still oppose it blindly. I used taxes in my example. I do not encourage you to stop paying taxes – I only would like you to enquire within you mind, and then enquire your tax office about the issue. Can they provide answers?
