SELF-HELP BOOKS

Coffee Is Good for You

by Robert J. Davis, Ph.D.

If you know me, I like books that say coffee is good for you. This book doesn’t say coffee is good for you, it just says there is little evidence that is it harmful.

As for diet soda making you fat, the research is inconclusive.  Here is another one, green tea promotes weight loss.  The research shows that is half-true.  Or how about eggs being bad for your heart.  The research shows they are not.

The book goes on and on telling you what the research shows about various diet claims.  I found this book very interesting

Sir Isaac Newton

BARLOW, Thomas Oldham (1824-1895).
by Thomas Oldham Barlow(1824-1895).

Sir Isaac Newton (January 4, 1643 – March 31, 1727) was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, alchemist, inventor, and natural philosopher, who is generally regarded as one of the most accomplished and influential scientists in history.

His law of universal gravitation and three laws of motion laid the groundwork for classical mechanics, which held sway in the physical sciences until the advent of quantum mechanics around the beginning of the twentieth century.

He was the first to show that the motions of bodies on Earth and celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws. 

Among other scientific work, Newton realized that white light is composed of a spectrum of colors and further argued that light consists of particles. 

Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz share the credit for playing major roles in the development of calculus in the Western world. This area of mathematics has since proved of enormous value for the advancement of science and technology. (Source: New World Encyclopedia)

  1. That cow! Hahaha!

    I was outside unfreezing my car (or whatever) when I heard the neighbours’ cat meeow. I know it was Tommy, because he has a very strange meeow. I looked around and called out his name a few times, making an unsuspecting passer-by on a bicycle shoot me strange looks, when I at last spotted Tommy. He wasn’t hiding under my car (as I feared), he was just around the garden hoarding and tried to lure me back to the back door of the house. Because that’s where he gets his cat candy from my mother. Go figure.

    • As always, thank you so much for commenting. I appreciate your perspectives and follow your blog. If it is any consolation, I suspect that it is the name calling (I’m being polite when I categorize the horrible things said as name calling) on both sides that people find annoying rather than the actual discourse.

      However, politics is always a risky topic. When I am around people who are having a “heated” political discussion, I often suggest that they change to the subject to “religion”. 🙂

  2. On my Facebook some Trump supporters said they appreciated the lack of name-calling on my conversations.

    And I appreciate when you make comments even when you disagree. That’s more thought-provoking, anyway. 🙂
