- Common Misconceptions about Hearing
Common misconceptions about sound, hearing, sound engineers, sound
reinforcement, "accepted" sound levels, and laws governing sound levels are
described in this paper. Some important facts about sound and hearing are
- Excessive Vehicle Noise - Impact and Remedies
This paper describes noise pollution caused by modified vehicles.
They are the weapons of intimidation and acoustical terrorism in the hands
of disrespectful and ignorant people. Health impact of noise pollution and remedies
are also presented.
- Digital Hearing Aids - the Way of the Future
Described are various digitally programmable hearing aids (HA's) and the
use of DSP (digital signal processing) in their design.
- Stuttering - Some Facts and Answers
Origins of stuttering, available therapies and devices, misconceptions about stuttering,
new approach to understanding stuttering, and the new Digital Speech Aid (DSA)
device are described.
- DSA (Digital Speech Aid) - A New Device to Decrease or Eliminate Stuttering
New models and a new approach to the stuttering
disorder were developed. Elements of this new
theory were applied to explain research results and
many features of the stuttering disorder. They were
the basis for the design and construction of a new
electronic device as a method for elimination or
reduction of stuttering.
- Digital Speech Aid to Decrease Stuttering - Clinical Results and Patients' Reactions
New electronic aid / training device to reduce stuttering was
developed. Clinical tests on about 60 patients showed, that
the DSA (Digital Speech Aid) is effective in helping to
combat stuttering by itself or in combination with other
standard and non-standard methods. The majority of
"Classical Stutterers" become more fluent when using this
device. This device is relaxing and non-disturbing. With DSA a
person can speak in any fashion and at any rate.
- Life on Earth - Flow of Energy and Entropy
This paper presents an unorthodox application of Information Theory,
shedding new light on the mystery of Life. It should be of interest to
scientists and non-scientists, alike.
- Simple "Food Rules" for Great Health
and Long Life
This paper is an application of the Information Theory approach to
life and diet (see paper "Life on Earth - Flow of Energy and Entropy").
The author explains in simple terms "Why" rather then "How" to do things
to maintain good health, fight disease, improve the immune system,
slow aging by 20% - 40%, and increase level of intelligence.
- Cancer - A Biophysicist's Point of View
This paper is an application of the Information Theory approach to understanding
of cancer. What is cancer and how it is formed, precursors and cancer prevention,
mechanisms responsible for cancer development, traditional and non-traditional
treatment of cancer as well as new research in cancer treatment are described.
- How to achieve and maintain optimal health?
Human organism is a very complex assembly/colony of 100 trillion (100,000,000,000,000)
cells. Each human cell contains about 100 trillion atoms. What a complex system!
Despite this complecity, we can combine our knowledge from many fields of science
and our empirical and historical data to draw conclusions and derive very reasonable strategies
on how to achieve and maintain optimal health.
- Common Misconceptions about Science
Noteably science has brought us many technological advances. But, are all of them
Do we understand their impact and long term effects on our lifes and the
environment? This paper attempts to address some of the most common
misconceptions about science. It is the hope of the author that the paper will
help us control our greed and make us rethink how we use technology.
