I was gifted the e-book reader and it has come handy at all times. The Kindle has ample storage amazing battery performance and some really awesome tools like wordwise which improve vocabulary. I can navigate from my current page to the contents or any other page within a second. I can also share words and passages. As I’ve fallen in love with it I decided to adorn with another of my most cherished articles. A starry night Vincent van Goh cover.
They look so beautiful together.
Today is reserved for Erik Homburger Erickson. He was a German American psychoanalyst known for his famous theory of psychological development. His most famous becoming is coining the term identity crisis.
He lacked a bachelors degree yet was instrumental in providing education at some prestigious institutes like Harvard. He is the 12th most cited psychologist of the twentieth century.
Identity development seemed to be his greatest concerns. . As an older adult, he wrote about his adolescent “identity confusion” in his European days. “My identity confusion”, he wrote “[was at times on] the borderline between neurosis and adolescent psychosis.” Erikson’s daughter writes that her father’s “real psychoanalytic identity” was not established until he “replaced his stepfather’s surname [Homburger] with a name of his own invention [Erikson].”The change in last name occurred as he started his job at Yale, and the “Erikson” name was accepted by Erik’s family when they became American citizens. It is said his children enjoyed the fact they would not be called “Hamburger” any longer.
Yes, it’s for real. The Indian institute of technology has been able to print for the first time 3D skin. The model has been made using a 3 D printer and it mimics the exact structure and function of the human skin. This could come in handy to test bio active molecules, various drugs and cosmetics. Finally no more animal testing!
In the past scientists have been trying to develop human skin from collagen gel on porus scaffold. However, they have been unsuccessful. The current breakthrough has been achieved by preparing a bionic and mixing it with silk protein and gelatine
Each skin construct contained well layered dermis and epidermis. When cultured in nutrient broths the tissue thrived up to 3 weeks. It also exhibited the undulating feature found at the junction of the epidermis and dermis. In addition keratinocytes were in abundance.
I close my eyes and I think of you
I pray for your long life
There are only a few
Who learn how to strive
With their grit and determination
They serve the mankind
So selfless so pure
Like the blooming flower
And the uncut azure
An ocean of peace
A blanket of warmth
You brought us up
In your loving arms
Thank you mother
For doing your best

After Morning excersise dress rehearsal
It’s sweltering hot outside and I have to fight my self to make up my mind to go for a run. Running releases happy hormones and I’m in need of them.. It’s best to wear breathable cottons because if the sweat accumulates it gets rather uneasy. I settled for whites. The run lasted for half an hour and what an adrenaline rush! I remembered to carry water with me and a sip or two every 15 mins took care of the hydration. I feel light and my body agile. The plan is to do it everyday for only in the habit of it will one benefit. Good to have a running buddy. Keeps me motivated.
This devastating novel is examining the complexities of identity and belonging, love and grief, through the lens of contemporary Judaism. Julian Treslove, working as a celebrity double, feels out of sync with his longtime friend and sometimes rival Sam Finkler, a popular author of philosophy-themed self-help books. The two have reconnected with their elderly professor, Libor Sevcik, following the deaths of Finkler and Libor’s wives, leaving Treslove even more out of the loop. But after Treslove is mugged—the crime has possible anti-Semitic overtones—he becomes obsessed with what it means to be Jewish, or “a Finkler.” Jacobson brilliantly contrasts Treslove’s search for a Jewish identity—with Finkler’s thorny relationship with his Jewish heritage and fellow Jews. Libor, meanwhile, struggles to find his footing after his wife’s death, the intense love he felt for her reminding Treslove of the belonging he so craves. Jacobson’s prose is effortlessly witty where it needs to be, heartbreaking where it counts—and the Jewish question becomes a metaphor without ever being overdone.
A little yellow here
And a bit of blue there
Some green tints
Few teal hints
The brush runs
The knives blunt
Paint is to canvas
Like air is to humans
The maze is made
The fellow with the spade
Digs the way through
The colours which may confuse a few
Reaches the end with a brilliant gleam
Yes the maze is done I heard some scream
