Die gute alte GEZ und das anteilnehmen

Fall 1:

Der Brief an den Beitragsservice
„ARD ZDF Deutschlandradio, Beitragsservice, 50656 Köln
Betreff: Barzahlung von Rundfunkgebühr 316 643 023

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
Sie haben mit Schreiben vom 6. März 2015 die Zahlung des zum 15. März fälligen Rundfunkbeitrag für den Haushalt, in dem ich wohne, eingefordert. Bitte teilen Sie uns mit, wo wir den Rundfunkbeitrag bar bezahlen können. Laut §14 Bundesbankgesetz sind „in Deutschland … auf Euro lautende Banknoten das einzige unbeschränkte gesetzliche Zahlungsmittel“. Das bedeutet meines Wissens, dass Sie die Bezahlung einer Schuld mit diesem unbeschränkten gesetzlichen Zahlungsmittel nicht ablehnen dürfen.
Sollten Sie stattdessen auf Begleichung per Banküberweisung oder Einzug  von Giralgeld bestehen, bitten wir um Angabe der gesetzlichen Grundlage hierfür.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen“

"Seitdem nichts mehr gehört"

Fall 2:

Aufgrund von persönlichen Erfahrungen.
Bei mir hat es geklappt, dass sich in einem Mietshaus unterschiedliche Mietsparteien zusammenschließen und als Wohngemeinschaft zusammen nur ein GEZ Konto führen, also auch nur einen Beitrag zahlen.
Läuft bei mir gerade mit 4 Personen und zwei Wohnungen.
— zwei Verfahren mit der GEZ erfolgreich(er) umzugehen

Magic mushrooms create a hyperconnected brain

Magic mushrooms may give users trippy experiences by creating a hyperconnected brain.

The active ingredient in the psychedelic drug, psilocybin, seems to completely disrupt the normal communication networks in the brain, by connecting "brain regions that don't normally talk together," said study co-author Paul Expert, a physicist at King's College London.


The research, which was published Oct. 28 in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, is part of a larger effort to understand how psychedelic drugs work, in the hopes that they could one day be used by psychiatrists in carefully controlled settings to treat conditions such as depression, Expert said. [Trippy Tales: The History of 8 Hallucinogens]

Magic mushrooms

Psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, is best known for triggering vivid hallucinations. It can make colors seem oversaturated and dissolve the boundaries between objects.

But the drug also seems to have more long-lasting effects. Many people report intensely spiritual experiences while taking the drug, and some studies even suggest that one transcendent trip can alter people's personalities on a long-term basis, making those individuals more open to new experiences and more appreciative of art, curiosity and emotion.

People who experiment with psilocybin "report it as one of the most profound experiences they've had in their lives, even comparing it to the birth of their children," Expert told Live Science.

Making connections

Scientists have long known that psilocybin binds to a receptor in the brain for serotonin, a brain chemical that plays a role in mood, appetite and sleep, but exactly how the drug transforms the whole brain's pattern of communication isn't clear.

In past work, Expert's colleagues had found that psilocybin spurred the brain into a more dreamlike state, and that the drug decreased brain activity.

In the current study, the team used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to scan the brain activity of 15 healthy volunteers once after they had taken a placebo, and once after they took the hallucinogen psilocybin. (The team chose only people who had reported past positive experiences with magic mushrooms to prevent them from panicking inside the claustrophobic MRI machines.)

The team then compared the brain activity of the individuals on and off the drug, and created a map of connections between different brain regions.

Psilocybin dramatically transformed the participants' brain organization, Expert said. With the drug, normally unconnected brain regions showed brain activity that was synchronized tightly in time. That suggested the drug was stimulatinglong-range connections the brain normally wouldn't make. After the drug wore off, brain activity went back to normal.

Drug's effect

Psilocybin may create a brain state akin to synesthesia, a sensory effect in which one sense stimulus (such as a number) always gets paired in the brain with another (such as a color or a sound), the researchers wrote in the paper. People with synesthesia may see certain colors when they hear music, or always see the number 3 in yellow, for instance, Expert said.

The findings could help scientists who are studying the drug as a potential treatment for depression, Expert said. Past work has found that people tend to be happier even after using psilocybin just once, but scientists would need to get a much better picture of how the drug impacts the brain before using psilocybin to treat depression, Expert said.

The research could ultimately also help answer bigger questions of the mind, like how people construct a sense of self.

"Through studies such as these we can really begin to tackle the questions of how we achieve coherent experiences of ourselves in the world around us, and understand what makes this break down," said Mitul Mehta, a psychopharmacology researcher at King's College London, who was not involved in the study.

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate." - Noam Chomsky

With this in mind, movies like e.g. Rambo II, give another perspective than entertainment. Especially because it is known that the pentagon sponsors military equipment for movies they approve.

Furthermore it is important to see, which bottom line war-movies uphold.

In Rambo II the main character frees US-american prisioners against his orders, out of vietnamese jungle camps.
He disobeys state orders, but if the war scenario was a good idea in the first place, like pointed out in the original novel from David Morell ("First Blood"), never glimpse through the movie.

So many hollywood movies help to uphold the status quo of the US empire, by delegating what we should take for granted, so that we can play, talk and discuss thereunder.

The Best Birth Control In The World Is For Men
 by Jon Clinkenbeard

If I were going to describe the perfect contraceptive, it would go something like this: no babies, no latex, no daily pill to remember, no hormones to interfere with mood or sex drive, no negative health effects whatsoever, and 100 percent effectiveness. The funny thing is, something like that currently exists.

The procedure called RISUG in India (reversible inhibition of sperm under guidance) takes about 15 minutes with a doctor, is effective after about three days, and lasts for 10 or more years…

Oh, and when you do decide you want those babies, it only takes one other injection of water and baking soda to flush out the gel, and within two to three months, you’ve got all your healthy sperm again.

The trouble is, most people don’t even know this exists. And if men only need one super-cheap shot every 10 years or more, that’s not something that gets big pharmaceutical companies all fired up, because they’ll make zero money on it (even if it might have the side benefit of, you know, destroying HIV).

Hard work causes stress, poor health and early death – above all, it has never solved poverty. We work longer hours now than we’ve done for fifty years, yet the gap between the rich and poor has never been wider. Working hard cannot solve an economic crisis. The fact we are all expected to work so hard is in fact a result of economic crisis: a crisis that did not appear in 2008, but has been with us far longer. This is the crisis at the heart of capitalism: a tension between the 1 percent who control the economy, and want to continually increase their wealth, and the rest of us, who are expected to work ever harder, in order to generate profit and to keep us from occupying our time in meaningful ways like questioning or challenging the status quo.

Während der Arbeit an unserem Thesenpapier zur Arbeit 4.0 sind wir auf wegweisende Ergebnisse gestoßen: Menschen brauchen Zeit zur Erholung, Zeit daheim! Wie oft höre ich bei meinen Auftritten gute Ratschläge wie "Geh doch nach Hause!" Die Basis hat es begriffen, und da möchten wir ansetzen.

Die Lösung liegt nahe: Arbeiten von zu Hause, das ist die Zukunft! Das ist Entspannung, das heißt Ausgleich. Upgraden Sie sich jetzt also vom Arbeitnehmer 3.0 zum Arbeitnehmer 4.0. Das Baby wickeln, nebenbei mit den Kollegen vernetzt in Echtzeit an der neuen Powerpoint-Präsentation arbeiten und eine Skypekonferenz mit dem Chef abhalten, während man die vegetarische Tofu-Gemüse-Pfanne mit Kokosmilch auf dem Herd überwacht und indes den Partner, unbemerkt von der Kamera, mal wieder nach allen Regeln der Liebeskunst schweinisch verwöhnt. All das geht heute in einem Rutsch, dank des Internets. Da kann im Hintergrund dann schon auch mal die Lieblingsserie oder Ihr Gute-Laune-Song laufen, Sie sind ja zu Hause in Ihrem eigenen kleinen Reich....

Re: Supraleitung bei Raumtemperatur
Also ich bin ja kein experte aber :) die primaerquelle beschreibt supraleitung bei bis zu 35 K (also ca. -238 Celsius). Die groesseren Zahlen in der gegend von 300 K beziehen sich auf den uebergang von leitend auf isolierend, nicht von supraleitend auf leitend. siehe dazu auch das obenstehende phasendiagramm aus fig. 6 des artikels.
