Um that things purdy big. They obviosly make smaller ones?http://www.fastcomponents.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=92&osCsid=6411a31b385c41b003c5495cd898ab2d
In 1843, Joule showed that heat was a form of energy and determined the physical constant now used as the S.I. unit for energy, the Joule (J). He demonstrated the mechanical equivalent of heat by measuring change in the temperature of water caused by the friction of a paddlewheel attached to a falling weight. This concept was further tested on his honeymoon in 1847 with his patient new bride Amelia Grimes, when Joule measured the temperature difference above and below the Sallanches waterfall in Switzerland!http://www.bad.org.uk/public/historical_posters/JamesJoulePoster.pdf
Overbreathing as a result of stress causes the delicate balance of gases (especiallyhttp://www.wsh.nhs.uk/documents/PatientLeaflets/5268-1.pdf
carbon dioxide) within our bodies to become disturbed.
A rapid, shallow or irregular breathing pattern causes carbon dioxide to be breathed out
from the lungs, in turn producing chemical reactions within the body. These chemical
changes produce many of the symptoms of hyperventilation such as breathlessness,
palpitations, tingling and feelings of anxiety.
I Don't want to say to much because i feel i might get treated as a hypachondriac. When i'm there though i never seem to remember what i should be saying, like which symptoms are most likely to point them in the right direction. Any ideas on that?
I forgot. Kind of on a side note, but i also get mouth ulcers all the time, like they never go away. I've always got at least one as far as i can tell and they hurt. Why is this? Is it smoking? Could it be connected?
Almost all of those with Behcet's suffer recurrent painful mouth ulcers that can make eating extremely difficult. Recurrent genital ulceration, inflammation of the eye (called uveitis) and skin lesions, such as an acne-like rash and red bumpy nodules (called erythema nodosum), occur.http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/conditions/behcets1.shtml
If the joints are affected, then painful arthritis occurs and can cause severe disability. Sometimes the nerves and brain are affected, leading to impaired balance, speech and memory loss.
They used them in a horticulture lab where I worked under Ultra violet lamps in these enclosed boothsDid you get a free tan ?  http://www.helionova.co.uk/vertical.asp
.....does industry use bubbles at all for a specific purpose ?
When these ‘bubbles’ (and there are many millions of them in an active ultrasonic tank) collapse,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultrasonic_cleaning
they collapse with enormous energy. When sufficient energy is built up in the ‘bubble’ or cavitation,
the cavitation collapses violently.
Dry Earwax Mystery Solved: Ear Wax Gene Identified
An exhaustive genetic study conducted on more than 3000 people has helped solve one of the ancient mysteries associated with earwax. It could eventually explain why some people have dry earwax while some others have a sticky, brown exudate.
The study has further established that people from either a European or African descent tend to have sticky and wet earwax while those with an east-Asian origin have dry wax.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NeuroplasticityPortions of the brain that are unused or rarely used can be 'rewired' for other functions (to a point). It has been shown in the matter of blind folk that some parts of the visual cortex had been 'rewired', trouble is the brain itself did the rewiring...
This is a very common situation. After brain trauma, the victim may be left with reduced, or zero, capability in a certain area (for instance, speech). The brain, as JnA put it, "re-wires" itself to by-pass that area and re-assigns its functions to a different part of the brain. The victim, in this instance, has to learn to speak all over again (although, commonly, there is residual ability rather than the facility being lost completely).
