Lessons from a Tragedy

Joshua Peterson of Putnam, Connecticut died on March 19 from compression asphyxiation while working out at a local gym. I extend condolences to his family and friends.

It is likely that Mr. Peterson was doing one of the following exercises:
The decline press is especially hazardous, and the guillotine press speaks for itself.

There are inherent dangers in having a weighted bar near one's neck. This makes a training partner or spotter that much more important on heavy sets. Training partners are good enough for elite powerlifters, and they're good enough for you. (I realize finding a good training partner can be very difficult. The point is just find someone to cover you when the weight gets up there.)

Doing dumbbell bench presses avoids the risk of asphyxiation since the bar element is removed. Other risks remain, though. In a state of fatigue, a person could drop a dumbbell or otherwise lose control, with severe consequences.

Strength training is a wonderful endeavor. Learn from this tragedy to pursue it safely.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good vendor of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers supreme Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that produce the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented product offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

So I pulled out the old credit card -- bought myself a [url=]Fatman iTube Valvedock Carbon Edition[/url] and I am very glad to report that I am extremely pleased. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that quality out of my head because it impressed the heck out of me. I searched online everywhere for a great deal and finally found it at [url=]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I phoned them first and asked a bunch of questions and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they ship outside of Australia but you won't be sorry if they do.

Very cool...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

Классический редукционизм это методология постулирующая, что любая система сводима к сумме своих элементов, но при всей своей рациональности и удобстве использования классический редукционизм содержит в себе очень большую недоработку которая ограничивает его использование.

В чём заключается эта недоработка?

Эта недоработка заключается в том, что классический редукционизм утверждает, что любая система сводима к сумме своих элементов, в то время как на самом деле любая система сводима к сумме своих элементов и их свойств(в дальнейшем для обозначения суммы элементов и их свойств я буду использовать термин объекты).

Согласно моему модернизированному представлению о редукционизме любая система есть сумма своих объектов, а любой объект есть сумма элемента\тов и его\их свойства\в.

Такое расширенное представление о редукционизме устраняет многие проблемы и даёт нам ответ на вопрос почему классический редукционизм не может объяснить устройство и функционирование сложных систем.

В отличии от классического редукционизма модернизированный редукционизм является универсальной методологией, а посему пригоден для объяснения устройства и функционирования любой системы.

Ради примера рассмотрим такую сложную систему как живой организм, что живой организм представляет из себя с точки зрения классического редукционизма?

С точки зрения классического редукционизма живой организм представляет из себя сумму клеток.

Любому более - менее умному и образованному человеку понятно, что такое представление о живом организме по меньшей мере неполно.

В отличии от классического редукционизма модернизированный редукционизм представляет организм не как сумму клеток, а как сумму клеток и их свойств и вот тут - то мы видим, что такое объяснение является полным и исчерпывающим объяснением живого организма.

Тоже самое относится к системам любой природы, классический редукционизм рассматривает любую из этих систем только как сумму её(системы) элементов и тем самым классический редукционизм лишает систему динамичности.

В отличии от классического редукционизма модернизированный редукционизм рассматривает любую систему как сумму объектов(элементов и их свойств) и поэтому описание различных систем в рамках модернизированного редукционизма выглядит намного более точным, полным и детализированным.

Рассмотрим такую систему как государство с точки зрения модернизированного редукционизма.

С точки зрения модернизированного редукционизма государство есть сумма определённого количества людей со всеми их биологическими, психологическими, социальными, культурными и мировоззренческими особенностями, а также географической территории со всеми её ландшафтными, геологическими и климатическими особенностями на которой эти люди пребывают.

Как видите объяснение государства с точки зрения модернизированного редукционизма гораздо более полно чем объяснение государства как суммы людей объединённых в одну социальную систему которое даёт нам классический редукционизм.

Также редукционизм(как классический, так и модернизированный) незаменим в деле решения различных проблем ибо редукционизм позволяет представить любую проблему как сумму более незначительных проблем, а те более незначительные проблемы в свою очередь представить как сумму ещё более незначительных проблем и таким образом в конце - концов получить сумму настолько незначительных проблем, что их решение по своей лёгкости подобно поеданию конфет.

К сожалению проблема заключается в том, что современная наука очень хорошо умеет описывать суммы различных элементов, но очень плохо умеет описывать суммы различных свойств и именно поэтому для того, чтобы использовать всю теоретическую мощь модернизированного редукционизма современной науке надлежит научиться эффективно работать не только с суммами элементов, но и с суммами свойств.
