Most of the taringuer@s who are reading this post like anyone else have the condition that we ask about nature, to know a little more and to find out what I want, because I want it, how I can get, what prevents me to achieve it, where and when I want to.
In short ladies and taringuer@s, the quality of our lives the determines the quality of our thinking. The quality of our thinking, in turn, is determined by the quality of our , are machinery, the driving force behind the thought. Without , do not have on what to think.

Some historians do not explain why the merchant, after a journey of 24 years, did not mention the great wall, chopsticks or green tea, things that much caught the attention of subsequent travelers.

The attack failed, Trotsky was unhurt and Alfaro Siqueiros was arrested days later. After serving six months in prison, Alfaro Siqueiros was urged by the Mexican authorities to leave the country. The artist decided to take refuge in Chile, and got in touch with Pablo Neruda, then Chilean consul-general in Mexico. The poet provided him with an invitation to teach mural painting at a University in his country. The favor cost Neruda a suspension of two months in the consular office.
What is the largest mausoleum in ?
It is difficult to say it, because it depends on the buildings to be taken into account. But many believe that it is the tomb of the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huangdi (3rd century BC). He was who is creating an army of 7,000 Terra Cotta Warriors who would accompany him in the ultraterrestrial life.

Earlier, clarification: do not refer to the Tatar people. In Greek mythology, Tartarus was the most remote area of hell, and the place where suffering terrible penalties those who offended the gods. For example, ixion spent eternity in a wheel on fire by throwing his father-in-law to an incandescent well. In Rome, Virgil (Aeneid) places it surrounded by a river of flames and protected by a 50-headed Hydra. Christianity took away the myth of Tartarus, and in the New Testament was translated as "hell"; It took part for the whole, but remained the idea of tortureeternal and flame.

Anatoly Zhigulin poet account that one of his companions in Siberia was cut four fingers: forced him to sit in the snow and spend the day seeing work to others. It ended up calling a shovel's work.
There were stores heat in Russia?
"border ="0 "src="http://www.quo.es/var/quo/storage/images/ciencia/consultas/las_mejores_consultas_de_historia/03historia/450311-1-esl-ES/03historia_galeria_landscape.jpg"/ >
Not exactly. There since the end of the 19th century were establishments that were used more as a refuge for the Russian cold that as a place of consumption of drinks or socialization. These premises were often tea houses or bars of vodka, and had central heating systems. During the Communist era, part of the pipes for heating systems were left exposed on the outside of buildings, to warm up a little street.
Is it true that there was a fourth King Wizard?
Really do not know if they existed, much less how many were. The only mention in the Gospels is what makes St. Matthew (2: 1-12),speaking literally of "some sages of the East" who came to Jerusalem, but never the number is specified. A manuscript of the 6th century, is the first to establish that they were three and their names.
How is the 'canon of beauty' of statues?
Many remain still the "Florentine canon": the height of the head is the eighth part of the body; the face must have a height equal to the length of the hand, and is the tenth part of him. Stand and with the arms outstretched, forms a square. Its diagonal cut at the last vertebra and are fixed in the center of the figure. Throwing a horizontal central point is divided man into two equal parts, and each in two parallel lines which pass through by the middle of the chest and knees.
Verdana "> questions about astronomy"
It is that the ships drive to 'support' on planets true?
In a way, Yes. The ships are not straight because our planet and the target moving and because it is expensive. In addition, both stars orbit the Sun, and the ship will do the same. The calculation of the orbit to "jump" to another planet involves creating another orbit with the condition, in addition, there's little fuel and how much menos use propellants, better. A common trick is to launch the ship into a planet, so their gravitational attraction to accelerate. As when using a honda, at the appropriate time, the ship escapes from that planet at higher speeds and that facilitates the journey. It is a difficult, more efficient, but not faster method.
What is the greatest Moon of the Solar System?
It is Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter. It is larger than mercury and the dwarf planet Pluto. In fact, this moon considered a planet if it takes the Sun. Its diameter is 5.262 kilometers, while the Moon is 3.476; that this is almost one third less than Ganimedes. Some of the other moons of Jupiter (Europe, Callisto, and IO) are also the largest in the Solar system, but there are other 59 natural satellites orbiting over the planet.
In all the planets are distinguished four seasons?
Even in all places on Earth there are four. This is a feature of the middle latitudes of the northern and southern hemispheres. Stations occur because the rotation of our planet and the revolution around the Sun are given in different planes (on Earth, with 23.5 degrees of difference, the so-called "obliquity of the ecliptic"). Same on Mars (25th), which also has stations in the middle latitudes, and whose polar ice caps have a similar seasonal process. Saturn (26.7 °) and Neptune (29.6 °). Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are under the age of 3 oblicuidades. And Uranus, to complicate things, is lying, so that its stations vary more than usual.
Astronauts lose their day-night cycle in space travel?
TheStation international space (ISS) gives a return to the Earth every hour and a half. Every 24 hours experience some 16 sunrises and sunsets 16. It would be folly to maintain a "local" approach for the time. The solution is to keep days of 24 hours, as on the surface, with the view to follow the timetable of Greenwich, the TUC (coordinated universal time). The hatch cover during the "night", to facilitate the sense of normalcy. At least eight hours of sleep since the 22: 00 at the 6:00, is common, although the astronauts usually Confirmado at first, for the pleasure of seeing the spectacle.
Why is it difficult to orbit mercury?
The tricky thing is not be orbiting it, but to get there and put into orbit. This is because mercury has an elliptical orbit, so its speed to "travel" varies: faster closer are the Sun. And the speed is high: on average, 47 km/s (1.5 times that of our planet). It demanded that the Messenger probe had to make several changes of speed to place in orbit.
Why planets rotate on their own?
As the poet Walt Whitman said: "In the universe, everything turns". The planets formed by accretion of material which was in the cloud that formed the Sun, were collecting (the inertia of spin) angular momentum which had each fragment. For this reason, the rotation of the planets and their orbits around the Sun have the same direction of rotation, except changes that have given by collisions with other bodies of the cosmic, as in the case of Uranus, which orbits "lying", with the axis almost in the plane of the ecliptic.
The universe, the expanding is occupying space, or nothing?
The universe is everything that exists. It is not a bag, a balloon into a larger space (vacuum or "nothing"). To our mind, it is easier to think of something that grows and occupies more volume of one larger site. Really everything grows, the universe expands, and we know this because it is measured with astronomical observations. But "beyond" there is a border and then nothingness that we are dealing with the expansion. That alone is admissible within the theory that explains the structure of the universe, i.e., that of General relativity.
What is a 'false dawn'?
Also called "zodiacal light". Is a yellow gleam that appears in the eastern skytwo hours before dawn of truth. It is the result of cosmic dust from comets (silicates) and other bodies resulting from the birth of the Solar System. The sunlight is reflected in these corpuscles, but they generate is a spectral light of conical shape. It gives a feeling of brightness of a city on the other side of the mountain, but it is difficult to see because it requires a very precise alignment of Astro Rey and any other light (the Moon, or a simple village) prevents it to appreciate either.
What would be the reference to put in an hour 'official' clocks back if they stopped all?
Really, the clocks of precision create time coordinated internationally will not batteries or plugged to the power grid: are atomic clocks with their autonomous systems of power generation; so it is almost impossible to fail. And although it gave such an eventuality, there would be a solution: return to astronomical observation, until only half a century ago was based on the measurement of time. At the end and after the time always was measured tostart with the apparent movements of the sky.
Great of health
Is it true that too much washing can be harmful?
Yes. The surface of the skin is colonized by bacterial flora and has the so-called "protective acid mantle", result of the combination of the secretion of sweat and other substances which are antimicrobial barrier. It is true that the absence or deficiency of hygiene leads to problems ofclass = "discreet" > health and social. But also that we shower and rub with SOAP these protections disappear partially or even completely (depending on the aggressiveness of the SOAP and rubbing) and that leaves us a bit "orphan" of defenses. If, in addition, we too resecamos the skin, we produce discomfort and even damage this body.
Are the crying of babies different depending on the country in which they arise?
Because you've hit the nail, because it is Yes. Previously it was believed that until the child was not beginning to use language not acquired habits such, but an article published in Current Biology 2009 denied. In the center of language learning and disorders in the development of the University of Würzburg (Germany), they studied the "melodies" and "phrases" of 30 German babies and other 30 French crying. Researcher Kathleen Wermke team realized that the way in which he sang crying the newborn French was still the same curve that which it describesthe francophones in their sentences; and the same coincidence occurred among infants Germans and mode of Declamation of the German-speaking. As proved with recording equipment and analyzing the sound with specialized programs, French adults tend to put more acute way the end of words and phrases; and that is what detected that babies born in that country were to the cry. Those who speak German instead, tend to do the opposite: the words and phrases often end up in a more serious frequency, so then make their babies.
Researchers at the University of Würzburg were based on a base formerly known by the Neurology. It is known that fetuses are getting used to the words to hear when they are in the womb, so that when they are born they are more likely to learn the language heard before that one different.
Is why should it not once again frozen food?
Because proliferarían many harmful microorganisms. Meat, fish, vegetables are already dead organismsthem when we have at home, so decomposition has been in them. And this process occurs through several types of bacteria. The thermophilic (of hot Habitat) and the mesophilic (temperatures) die below 17 degrees C below zero, but the (Hardy) psicrófilas survive and even thrive. So freezing again would give them the opportunity to reach a dangerous number.
Why hair continues to grow and hair do not?
It is that it isn't. Hair grows continuously up to some length, different for each area of the body. Then, for physiological reasons, the hair follicle (the root of the hair) stops its activity and begins its decline until it degenerates, the hair falls and becomes State of inactivity.
