Dreaming has fascinated humankind since the dawn of
recorded history. As dreaming is so vivid, so complex,
and so emotional , it has inspired religious movements ,
artistic representations, and introspective scientific theories. All
of these pre-modern expressions have been based on the idea
that dreams contain messages that cannot be delivered in any
Thus, i t was thought by the early Judaeo-Christians that God

We were both of us not a little stiff as the result of sleeping out in the
open all that night, for even in Grand Canary the dew-fall and the comparative
chill of darkness are not to be trifled with. For myself on these
occasions I like a bit of a run as an early refresher. But here on this rough
ground in the middle of the island there were not three yards of level to
be found, and so as Coppinger proceeded to go through some sort of
dumb-bell exercises with a couple of lumps of bristly lava, I followed his
example. Coppinger has done a...
The history of sleep medicine and sleep research can be
summarized as a history of remarkable progress and, at
the same time, a history of remarkable ignorance. Since
the publication of the second edition in 1999 enormous
progress has been made in all aspects of sleep science
and sleep medicine. I am pleased to see these rapid
advances in sleep medicine and growing awareness about
the importance of sleep and its dysfunction amongst the
public and the profession.
Layroh's hiring of husky down-and-outers for his expedition is part of a plan made ages past. It was shortly after midnight when a persistent nightmare aroused Don Foster from sleep. For a moment he lay drowsily in his blankets there on the sand, with memory of the nightmare still vivid. It had been a monstrous flying thing like a giant blue-bottle fly that he had been battling in his sleep. Memory of the thing's high-pitched, droning buzz still rang in his ears. Then abruptly he realized that the peculiar buzzing was no mere echo of a nightmare. It was an...
(BQ) Part 1 book "High-Yield behavioral science" presents the following contents: Child development, adolescence and adulthood; aging, death and bereavement; psychodynamic theory and defense mechanisms, learning theory and behavioral medicine, substance related disorders, sleep, the genetics of behavior, behavioral neuroanatomy and neurochemistry, psychopharmacology, schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders.
For otolaryngology–head and neck surgeons in training as
residents and fellows, it is a difficult task to keep up with
all of the advances in the basic and clinical sciences that
impact the medical and surgical practice of their specialty.
It is also pertinent to the practice of otolaryngology–head
and neck surgery for interested medical students and lecturers
in medical school faculties who teach students and
resident physicians to have a reference book that clearly
presents the basic principles.

They all knew he was a spacer because of the white goggle marks on his sun-scorched face, and so they tolerated him and helped him. They even made allowances for him when he staggered and fell in the aisle of the bus while pursuing the harassed little housewife from seat to seat and cajoling her to sit and talk with him. Having fallen, he decided to sleep in the aisle. Two men helped him to the back of the bus, dumped him on the rear seat, and tucked his gin bottle safely out of sight. After all, he had not...
Over the past decade, there has been a prolific increase in the research, development
and commercialisation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and their associated technologies
(see Figure 1). This rise has been a result of a number of contributing factors,
including continued miniaturisation (leading towards an era of truly ‘pervasive’ and
‘invisible’ computing); low-power circuits, devices and computation (for example, the
ultra-low-power sleep states now found in microcontrollers); and efficient short-range
communication (such as ZigBee and Bluetooth).
Behavioral science is an extremely high-yield, yet often overlooked, subject on the
USMLE Step 1. Understanding important behavioral science concepts and being able
to apply them to test questions can significantly increase your score. Deja Review:
Behavioral Sciences is the perfect format to study behavioral science material; it helps
you rapidly review material you know as well as fill-in gaps in your knowledge.
Feng Shui has been an important part of my life since May of 1995. My first introduction to
Feng Shui was an auspicious encounter with Denise Linís ìSacred Spaceî book. One night
while visiting a friend, I couldnít sleep and picked up her book and began to read it. Within
five minutes of reading it, I felt a calling and a knowing that I was meant to do this work
called Feng Shui. The next morning I set out to find someone in my local area to help me
study this fascinating art and science of placement. ...

The telephone wouldn't stop ringing. Over and over it buzzed into my sleep-fogged brain, and I couldn't shut it out. Finally, in self-defense I woke up, my hand groping for the receiver. This etext was produced from If Worlds of Science Fiction July 1952. Extensive research did not uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on this publication was renewed.
Syd sat in his one room apartment looking out his window onto the
street several stories below. He ate a peanut butter sandwich that stuck
to the roof of his mouth like paste and tried to dislodge it with the bitter
taste of foc. His normal midnight snack.
He thought about how he was in a poor area of Steeple City, and how
even though the people drove battery cars and only ran the room disinfecting
Spaires Machines if they had children, the people walking in the
street below were happier than him. The foc, an anti-depressant and
stimulant, only made his head pound so he set the...
It was the speaking of Miss Kitty's name which half roused her from
sleep. She eased her angular body into a more comfortable position in
the sack. Still more asleep than awake, her mind reflected tartly that in
this lifeboat, hurtling away from their wrecked spaceship back to Earth,
the sleeping accommodation was quite appropriately named. On another
mental level, she tried to hear more of what was being said about her.
Naturally, hearing one's name spoken, one would.
On the morning the radar reported something odd out in space, Lockley
awoke at about twenty minutes to eight. That was usual. He'd slept in a
sleeping bag on a mountain-flank with other mountains all around. That
was not unprecedented. He was there to make a base line measurement
for a detailed map of the Boulder Lake National Park, whose facilities
were now being built. Measuring a base line, even with the newest of
electronic apparatus, was more or less a commonplace job for Lockley.
From where Dick Barrow sat, hundreds of men were visible, occupying benches in every manner of position. Some stretched at full length, sleeping in the morning sun after a night in the park. Others sat with heads hanging; thinking thoughts of their own. Depression or recession, it meant the same to all of them. Some didn't care, but others tried to find any kind of work that would fill their stomachs with food. For three days Dick hadn't eaten a good meal, and felt almost as low as the derelicts whom he had for companions. He would have enjoyed a...
