The Good Old Days Are Never Coming Back
In these times of AIDS, the Internet, and nuclear weapons, it’s often tempting to look back at a simpler time when we didn’t have so many problems. It’s easy to find yourself longing for a time when people were kinder, happier, and more contented.
However, in reality, the good old days were never that great, and they aren’t coming back anytime soon. If you’re looking for a way to get through this feeling of nostalgia, we’ve found some songs that will help you remember what life was like before the internet and AIDS.
One of the best examples of this is the song “The Good Old Days” by Rick Astley. It’s a heartwarming track that will make you want to remember the good times. It was released in 1993 and can be streamed on all music platforms out there.
Another great example is the song “Home” by Dolly Parton. This song is about how people miss their homes, and it will make you feel nostalgic. It was released in 2014 and has over a hundred thousand views on YouTube.
It’s a sentimental song that will have you singing along with the lyrics. It’s a great song to listen to when you’re looking for inspiration.
If you’re looking for something a little different, we also have the song “Good Ol’ Days” by The Script. It’s a beautiful song that will have you remembering the good old days and how they were better than what we have now.
This song is about looking back on your childhood and remembering the good things that happened in your life. It’s a great song to play when you’re having a bad day or just need to relax.
Finally, Corey Tynan’s “Hold Onto the Memories” is a very emotional song that will have you reminiscing on your past. It’s a song that will make you cry, and it will remind you to cherish all the memories you have.
These are just a few of the many songs that will have you looking back on your life and remembering all the good times. They’ll also give you a chance to reflect on your life and what you’ve learned from it.
Milgram recruited 40 men, who had a wide range of ages and backgrounds, to take part in his experiment. They were told that they would be testing the effects of punishment on learning. They were offered a token cash award for participation, and they believed that they had an equal chance of playing the role of a learner or teacher.
They were introduced to another participant, who was actually a confederate of the experimenter (Milgram) and who would draw straws to determine their roles – learner or teacher. They were then taken into a room with electrodes attached to their arms and a row of switches marked from 15 volts (Slight Shock) to 450 volts (Danger: Severe Shock).
The participants then answered a series of questions that were read aloud by the “experimenter” wearing a gray lab coat, who was an actor. When the answer to a question was incorrect, the teacher would administer an electric shock, up to 450 volts.
These experiments were a major source of controversy and many people have doubts about them. One reason for this is the psychological and emotional stress that some of the participants experienced. They showed a variety of signs, including sweating, trembling, shaking, stuttering, biting their lips, groaning and digging fingernails into their skin.
Another problem is that Milgram deceived his subjects and removed their rights to withdraw from the experiment. Some of the participants felt very guilty after taking part in the experiment, knowing that they could have harmed another person.
Although the study is not perfect, it did provide important information about the power of obedience and the ways that we might be influenced into doing something illegal. It also revealed that some people may be more susceptible to obedience than others, depending on their social environment.
The Milgram Experiment was a landmark in psychology, and it remains a controversial topic even today. Some believe that Milgram’s findings indicate a universal propensity for destructive obedience, while others argue that humans are merely products of their cultural moment. However, the Milgram experiment was an important step forward in our understanding of how human beings can be manipulated into doing something unethical or harmful.
The Earth Will Spin Around
The Earth’s inner core — a hot iron ball the size of Pluto buried about 3,200 miles beneath the surface of the planet — can spin independently, thanks to the liquid metal outer core that surrounds it. It has long puzzled scientists because its orbital patterns aren’t exactly predictable. And now, a new study suggests it may have slowed its rotation to a standstill for a few years.
The pause is the latest in what appears to be an ongoing cycle of the planet’s inner core rotating opposite to its mantle and crust. Researchers have used data on seismic waves generated by nuclear explosions and earthquakes to analyze this behavior. They’ve seen the core’s speed accelerate then decelerate in a 70-year cycle that started in 2009.
Scientists have been studying the spin of the Earth’s inner core since 1936, when seismologist Inge Lehmann discovered it floats within the liquid outer core. But this hasn’t been easy, mainly because the metal nucleus can’t be accessed for samples or direct measurements of its spin.
But scientists have found that the inner core’s spin changes by a fraction of a millisecond every 35 years, according to this new study published in Nature Geoscience. It’s a relatively slow movement, but it’s still significant.
This means it’s possible that two titanic forces — the mantle and the magnetic field of the liquid outer core — are battling for control over the heart of the planet. While the mantle slows the inner core’s spin, the magnetic field in the liquid core generates an impulse that could push it forward.
And this might have slowed the core’s spin to an apparent halt in 2009, as it reached a period of “subrotation,” when its rotation was slower than that of the mantle. It’s not clear what the exact reasons are for this pause, or how it could have been caused by anything other than a change in the earth’s magnetic field.
In a new single released ahead of their debut album ‘Songs of Hope and Science’, Helsinki-based indie rock band Koria Kitten Riot tackle these themes head on with a gentle melody. The lyrics are all about focusing on the good things around us, while keeping hope alive that “the world will keep spinning”.
The mid-’00s were a particularly good time for giddy, instrument-stuffed indie pop. Bands like Annuals, Decemberists, Grandaddy, and the Shins rolled out some pretty fun if not cheesy records. The best of the bunch was Helsinki’s Koria Kitten Riot. They’ve returned with a new album that is sure to impress. It’s not for the faint of heart, but for those who don’t mind the occasional slap on the wrist, Lights Out will be a worthy addition to your kitty’s collection.
You can download the full-length version here. The album will be released on 27th January via VILD Recordings. Its ten tracks are a blend of the aforementioned rock- and pop-infused genres with a few nifty twists. Whether you’re a longtime fan or just a newbie, this is one worth a listen.
