Learn about the science of the Aurora Borealis with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. The aurora borealis, often referred to as the Northern Lights, is a natural light-show that appears in the sky around the north magnetic pole. Auroras can sometimes be seen in other places of the world, but not as clearly. In the southern hemisphere, the phenomenon is called ´´aurora australis”. The aurora borealis occurs because of an interaction between solar wind and the Earth’s magnetic field. When the sun’s gases explode, some of the particles are blown away in a phenomenon known as solar wind. The particles in the solar wind travel at speeds of over 600,000 miles per hour and take two to three days to reach the Earth. When these particles reach the Earth, some of the electrons and protons get caught in the Earth’s magnetic field. This happens most frequently in the Polar Regions of the Earth where the magnetic field is stronger. The electrons and protons get trapped in the atmosphere, and move in a giant oval shaped motion.

Learn about the science of Meteorites with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.A meteorite is a mass of stone or metal which has reached the earth’s surface from outer space. There are various names for a meteorite depending on where it is situated. While it is traveling in space, it is referred to as a ´´meteoroid”. When it passes through the earth’s atmosphere and produces a fiery streak in the sky, known as a ´´shooting star”, it is called a ´´meteor”. There are three basic types of meteorites: stone, iron, and stony-iron. Because meteorites formed from the dust present during the creation of the solar system, they are on average around 4.5 billion years old. Their composition is, therefore, a record of past geologic processes which occurred while they were still part of their parent asteroid. As such, they are extremely helpful in assisting us with our understanding of the history of our universe. However, this field of study is still both difficult and speculative work.

Learn about Charles Darwin´s theories of Evolution with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.In the 1830s, a young naturalist called Charles Darwin set out as part of a survey expedition on the HMS Beagle. The Beagle circumnavigated the Earth, taking five years and carrying out detailed surveys around the southern coast of South America. Darwin collected fossils and different species of plants and animals, and made many detailed observations which caused him to come up with an absolutely crazy idea which changed the world. Darwin saw that if a species could reproduce to its full capacity, the population would increase uncontrollably – we’d be totally overrun by bunnies and weevils and cockatoos and orchids. But Darwin then observed that populations of all species tended to remain about the same each year, not really getting any smaller or larger. He also knew that environmental resources - food, water, shelter - were limited. Finally, Darwin noticed that no two creatures in any species were exactly alike, and that many of the variations between members of a species could be passed down to their offspring.

Learn about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. In 1997, a Californian man named Charles Moore was sailing home from Hawaii after competing in a boat race. On a whim, he decided to change course and head through a part of the eastern Pacific Ocean known as the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre. Known to seafarers as ´´the doldrums´´, this is an area of light or no wind and little boat traffic. Its calm weather is due to a permanent column of high pressure air, which causes the ocean for hundreds of miles across to swirl slowly towards its center. As Moore headed into the Gyre, he started to notice an unsettling amount of debris floating in the water. The closer he got to the center, the more garbage there appeared to be, and the vast majority of it was obviously of human origin. In fact, most of it was discarded plastic.

Can´t Just Stop: An Investigation of Compulsion...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The first book to examine the science behind both mild and extreme compulsive behavior - using fascinating case studies to understand its deeper meaning and reveal the truth about human compulsion. Whether shopping with military precision or hanging the tea towels just so, compulsion is something most of us have witnessed in daily life. But compulsions exist along a broad continuum, and at the opposite end of these mild forms exist life-altering disorders. Sharon Begley´s meticulously researched book is the first of its kind to examine all of these behaviors - mild and extreme (OCD, hoarding, acquiring, exercise, even compulsions to do good) - together, as they should be, because while forms of compulsion may look incredibly different, these are actually all coping responses to varying degrees of anxiety. With a focus on personal stories of dozens of interviewees, Begley employs genuine compassion and gives meaningful context to their plight. Along the way she explores the role of compulsion in our fast paced culture, the brain science behind it, and strange manifestations of the behavior throughout history. Can´t Just Stop makes compulsion comprehensible and accessible, exploring how we can realistically grapple with it in ourselves and those we love. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amanda Carlin.

Learn about Epidemics with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.Epidemics are important to us as humans because they affect our very survival. Knowing what they are and how to control them have been of interest to us for centuries. A simple explanation of the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic would be to say that an epidemic is the large-scale transmission of an illness, whereas a pandemic is an epidemic that spreads across several countries. Until relatively recently‚ before advancements in science‚ most people believed epidemics were a punishment from God. There has been a large degree of mystery surrounding the spread of illnesses. Today, however, science provides us with an almost complete roadmap to epidemics. We are now able to isolate and categorize disease-carrying microbes, trace the first cases of transmission, understand how transmission occurs, and predict the spread of an illness. Having developed such knowledge of epidemics and how they work, the next step is to see if we can predict how, when, and where the next one will occur.
