Unexplained science: Chocolate cures, kills and annoys

 article about chocolate research

A recent research in Archives of Internal Medicine reveals that chocolate, if eaten regularly, can can cause depression. Previously chocolate has been related to lifting mood, but according to the study, the effects are quite the opposite.

And then I thought to myself - just yesterday, while enjoying my fifth beer, I heard someone talking about a study that claimed people who eat chocolate are better in bed (or that chocolate just arouses sexual feelings). So, if I understand it correctly, then first it ruins your mood and then you're in so farking bad mood that you just want to have great sex. Hmm. Now that got me thinking. If chocolate can do all that, according to studies, what else can it do? What else have the crews of chocolate research academies around the world have found out?




Let the truth be revealed (in today's episode of Unexplained Science)!

As always, as every such research usually reveals, there's more research required to determine the exact relationship between chocolate and its effects. So, where do we start?

Public Art Squad: The Power of Today´s Messengers

Is human a stranger to his own existence? Is there a place for the essence of our nature in this world? What role does art play in modern hard hitting economies and corporate democracies? Is this society, run by consumerism, in danger of loosing its greatest value? Samuel Beckett described the nature of the second skin in his model of the existentialism reality of this modern paper stage. Today, awards of art, with the head of Shakespeare are granted to laser beamed shows of entertainment. Therefore it is time for rock and colours, as the Kingdom did get traded for the horse, and the Montesquieu values set the clock to the environmental storms we created. If internet failed to provide people with "the superpower" of expression, Public Art will always be there, as a white canvass waiting for it to be taken. In the Big Island slash Continent, of Australia, the cyclone passed through, and the hail storm melted nothing. Here Public Art Squad unleashes it new power of creation. They answer with actions the question; what is place where politics and economy rendezvous with art, in the common grounds, of Public Art, and Public Art Spaces? Directed by David Humphries, an artist that travelled the generations and lands, the work of Public Art Squad, represents modern art and should not be taken for granted
