The Philosophy of Negotiation
Category:
Self Improvement: Mind Development

This article is about the philosophy of negotiation and it is based on the author's negotiation skills and experiences in his international business endeavours. Negotiation is a dialogue between two or a group of people. The main intention is to reach an agreement and understanding or to resolve conflicts between the parties. It is essential that the parties enter into the negotiation phase willingly and that they commit to accept and execute the resulting outcome. Normally, a good negotiation process is terminated by a compromise acceptable to both sides. The definition of a good negotiating process, however, is not when one side wins but when all negotiating parties come out as winners.

How to Avoid Alzheimer's Disease
Category: Health - Alzheimer

In this article the background and the cause of Alzheimer's disease is discussed together with the description of the brain parts that are affected. In addition to the risk factors described, ways to reduce the risk of having the disease are suggested. Mind-body connection is investigated and future studies and methodologies are proposed to better understand the mechanisms of the disease, which will hopefully lead to the appropriate preventive treatment.

The Disappearance of Iranian Nuclear Physicists
Category: Intelligence

The CIA and the Mossad have been cooperating for a long time on a top secret program to sabotage Iran's development of their nuclear program by persuading key individuals to defect.
If persuasion doesn't work, they are eliminated. Nuclear physicists are the focus of this international effort.

God Created The Particles And God Created Higgs
Category: Physics - Science

CERN (the Geneva-based European laboratory for particle physics) announces the discovery of Higgs boson "God particle". It took about five decades and over 2.6 Billion (GBP) to reach this point of discovery and now we can start a new era in our understanding of the universe.

A New Unique Chronic Pain Detector
Category: Medical - Health: Pain Management

Pain has major physical, psychological and economic impact. We lose billions of dollars per year due to pain in medical costs, compensation and sickness absenteeism. A new chronic pain detector - the Neuro-CPDTM was developed for the detection and verification of chronic pain. We believe that it will revolutionize pain diagnosis and treatment practices.

Sex and Scientific Philosophy - Why Women Live Longer Than Men
Category: Women - Genetics

It is an acknowledged fact that women live longer than men. The reasons are manifold. An attempt is made here to describe briefly some of the factors identified in published studies and to suggest new directions for further research. It is believed that those studies may lead to the discovery of new factors explaining the discrepancy in lifespan between women and men. One such is the area of foetal microchimerism, which is the persistence of certain numbers of foetal cells in the mother after pregnancy. Another may be found in further studies about the system involved in enhancing a mother's immune system, during and after pregnancy.

Islamic Invasion
Category: Intelligence-Islam


The worldwide Islamic invasion was envisioned by Nostradamus in the mid-1500s. Among other prophesies, he described Anti-Christian Muslim forces in Iraq and Syria, and persecution in the Muslim countries of Asia, especially Turkey. From Israel the war extends to Western Europe and there will be a Third World War using nuclear missiles…
