 True Facts about Light

Hey you all, I am so glad to see you here. Well then, let's go back to the post. Here, you will find that I was really inspired by "light" lately. Sounds ridiculous, I know. But I had a dream last night. I dreamed that I was studying light in a Physics class ( which I used to take when I was in college). But then my Professor asked me a question about light, and how does it react to objects... I went totally blank. Thanks to all this. it was just a dream. 
But this just made me think- why not make a post on my blog?? So here you go.... my dream...:)




 What is Light?  
Light is a form of energy, called Electromagnetic Radiation. Light travels very fast (around 300,000 km/s) and goes straight. Light rays travel only straight lines, but they can be bend by a proper material.

How does Light bend?
The bending of light is called Refraction. Refraction occurs when light travels from one medium to another, e.g from air to water. When light enters another medium, its speed changes due to difference in density.

Why does light have so many different colours?
There are different colours of light because they are light waves which have different wavelengths. Red light has the longest wavelength while violet light has the shortest wavelength



What are the Primary colours?
Red, green and blue would be the  primary colours of light. Mixing and experimenting with those colours will create a range of many other colours, including white.

What makes a rainbow?
When sunlight is intercepted by a drop of water in the atmosphere, some of the light refracts into the drop, reflects from the drop's inner surface, and then refracts out of the drop. The first refraction separates the sunlight into its component colours, and the second refraction increases the separation. The result is a rainbow.




How to control Light?
Light can be controlled by 3 ways: Blocking, Bending and Reflecting.
Blocking- blocking a light will create a shadow
Reflecting - reflecting light with a mirror to change its way.
Bending- also called refraction- going from one medium to another.

 Cannibalism

Hey guys, so I wanted to make a totally different post today, something we may already know, but not too much about it. I want to write about Cannibalism, what is it exactly and is it still present. So enjoy!!

 
Cannibalism  is the act or practice of humans eating the flesh of other human beings. A person who practices cannibalism is called a cannibal.
 Cannibalism may also refer to the act of any animal consuming another animal from the same kind or type.


 But have we ever thought of what might have led to cannibalism? What made humans act like this?
Here is a short list of the reasons:

  •  Cannibalism is known as a cultural norm - cannibalism cultures believed that by eating for example, a brain from a member of their village will give them strength and power.
  • Famine - starvation also led to cannibalism- the survival during harsh times made cannibalism a daily ritual. 
  • Cannibalism was also caused by insanity or social deviancy.









 Cannibalism has recently been both practiced and fiercely condemned in several wars, especially in Liberia and Congo. Today, The Korowai have been reported to practice ritual cannibalism up to the present day. Anthropologists suspect that cannibalism is no longer practiced by the Korowai clans that have had frequent contact with outsiders. Recent reports suggest that certain clans have been coaxed into encouraging tourism by perpetuating the myth that it is still an active practice.



  In 2006, the television show 60 Minutes claimed that when someone in Korowai society is convicted of being a khakhua (secret witch doctor) he or she is tried, and if convicted he or she is tortured, executed, and eaten. Other unverified claims were made that the brain is usually eaten immediately, while still warm, and that pregnant women and children don't participate in the cannibal act.


 There are fundamentally two kinds of cannibalistic social behavior;endocannibalism (eating humans from the same community) and exocannibalism (eating humans from other communities).
A separate ethical distinction can be made to delineate between the practice of killing human for food (homicidal cannibalism) versus eating the flesh of a person who was already dead (necro-cannibalism).

Something about the Stars....



We may all have a slice of knowledge of what stars are, but do we actually know a lot about them?
I have been reading a science magazine in my dentist's waiting room lately  ( not that I am a big fan of science, but when I have a chance, I read about what's going on up there in the sky). While running through the magazine I discovered few facts about stars. Here is a bunch of facts about them....






Stars are huge balls of gas in outer space. They are made from helium, hydrogen and other elements, they produce heat, light and other forms of energy. The twinkling stars that you observe in the night sky are actually very far away from the earth. Our Sun is also a star, but it is much closer to our planet, Earth, therefore it looks much bigger.




The Sun has planets and other objects moving around it. The Solar System is made of our Sun, Earth, other surrounding planets and rocky objects all together. Many stars have planets moving around them too.

It is believed by astronomers that there might be approximately  70,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 or 70 sextillion stars in the Universe. But when you look at the sky, you may see 3,000 with your naked eye. 

The poetry “twinkle twinkle little star” must have been inspired by those beautiful stars twinkling in the night sky. But have you ever wondered why stars twinkle at night? The twinkling of stars is actually caused by the movement of Earth’s atmosphere. The light emitted by the star enters the atmosphere in a straight path, but we see stars twinkling because air movements in our atmosphere change the paths constantly, hence the twinkling.


Stars come in different sizes. Some are smaller than our Sun whereas others are so huge that our sun is a mere dot when compared with their size. Some stars, called supergiants have a radius of about a thousand times that of our sun. The smallest stars are called neutron stars.

''Frozen People brought back to Life'' study shows

 
How is it possible for a human, who had just froze to death, come back to life??
After years of examining and experimenting on living matters, the scientists are finally reaching the end of this chain of questions.

It has been proven that yeast and worms can survive hypothermia if they are first subjected to extreme oxygen deprivation. This bring a small conclusion that humans may survive too, after removing the oxygen.


Scientists have been experimenting on worms and yeast, though. When subjected to literally freezing temperatures, the embryos of yeast and garden worms do not live, researchers found. A full 99 percent of those in the experiment died after 24 hours of exposure to temperatures just above freezing.


But, when first deprived of oxygen in the manner described above, 66 percent of the yeast and 97 percent of the garden worms survived. Upon re-warming and reintroduction of oxygen, the "two widely divergent organisms" reanimated and showed normal life spans, said scientists in a statement.

This proof widely opens a gate of mysteries.  It can solve many reported instances of humans "brought back to life" after succumbing to hypothermia. Instances, such as no heartbeat (mostly known as being clinically dead) and low body temperature.

 ''Forced Hibernation'' is the right term given to this procedure. A human being may be put to death by first removing oxygen and then locating the body to a decreasing temperature area.



Human Experience with ''Forced Hibernation'':

 
Erica Norby

During winter time, the Canadian toddler, with the body temperature of 61 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) laid for hours in below-freezing weather after wandering outside wearing only a diaper. Apparently dead, she recovered completely after being re-warmed and resuscitated.


 


 
Mitsutaka Uchikoshi

a Japanese mountain climber, who was discovered with a core body temperature of 71 degrees F (22 degrees C) after 23 days after falling asleep on a snowy mountain.

Mauritius - Heaven on Earth


Officially the Republic of Mauritius, an Island located on Indian Ocean and off the southeast coast of Africa. The main languages spoken there are Mauritian Creole, French and English. Only recently has the Island become independent (since 1968). Before this year, it has been ruled first by the Dutch, then the French and lastly by the British during the Napoleonic Wars.





The climate in Mauritius is typically tropical with the addition of southeast trade winds; there is a warm, dry winter from May to November and a hot, wet, and humid summer from November to May. The warmest months are December and January where temperature rises up to 36'C and the coldest months are September and August with a temperature of 16'C.
  Cyclone affect the Island during November until end of April. The two worst and last cyclones that affected Mauritius were Hollanda in 1994 and Dina in 2002



The Island itself is just Beautiful. Fantastic weather, amazing view and an incredible adventure. The island itself is a quiete and peaceful place, meaning that there is low crime and is very open to tourists and there is plenty of attractions for each visitor. From swimming in the warm Indian ocean to mountain climbing.


Their culture is  influenced by the Indian, Creole, Chinese and European culture. It is common for a combination of cuisines to form part of the same meal. You have the Chinese Spring festival- The festival is the Chinese New Year,  and is celebrated in January/February, depending on the adjustment of lunar days. And you have many other festivals including Hindu and Muslim festivals.

 Xbox 360 Slim


There is no denying how sleek the new Xbox 360 Slim is – although it is not actually called the slim. The name has stuck for most, but lets face it, it’s not as thin as we hoped. This certainly gave one modder a challenge, as he wanted to make it portable.
You can see from the video below that Ben Heck was able to produce a slimmer model than his previous version. What makes this portable Xbox 360 S so unique is the 17-inch Gateway LCD that forms part of the mod.
How many portable games consoles can you say offer 720p? Ben has made just one for the moment, but he is about to produce two more for a contest that he is running on The Ben Heck Show.

Most Powerful Women of 2010



 1. Michelle Obama

As a wife of the 44th American President, Barrack Obama, Michelle plays other very important roles in her life. She is a forceful advocate of school nutrition standards and military families' affairs, she's more involved in policy than Laura Bush was. But unlike Hillary Clinton, who championed a secretive (and ultimately unsuccessful) health care reform, Obama has stayed away from hard policy. A fashion icon and an athletic mother of two, she's Jackie Kennedy with a  law degree from Harvard and street sense from Chicago's South Side. She's also effective: In response to her Let's Move! campaign against childhood obesity, companies like Coca-Cola, Kellogg and General Mills have pledged to reduce the calorie content of their foods by 2012.




 2. Irene Rosenfeld

 Her $26.3 million compensation package in 2009 made Rosenfeld the nation's second-highest-paid female, after Yahoo!'s Carol Bartz. She earned it, drawing fire early this year after announcing plans to acquire British candymaker Cadbury. Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway owned 9.4% of Kraft, voted against the deal, calling it "dumb." When Rosenfeld refused to back down, Buffett retaliated by
 by selling 33.1 million Kraft shares (one-third of Berkshire's stake).









 3. Oprah Winfrey

The world's most successful female media exec--she earned $1.35 billion over the last five years--is making some big changes for 2010-11. Her 25th season of Oprah, the program that has launched multiple careers, spawned countless bestsellers and helped millions of women feel that someone, at last, understands them, will air its final show on Sept. 9, 2011. Next up? Winfrey is launching OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, a joint venture of Discovery Channel and her own Harpo Productions, in January 2012.







 4. Angela Merkel

With a fragile coalition--and infighting between the FDP (liberals) and the Christian Social Union, with both of whom her party is allied--Merkel is trying to push through tax and education reforms before next spring's regional elections. With German business sentiment near all-time highs, she can afford to spend a little political capital. Germany's planned 4% cuts in the 2011 budget ($400 billion) may anger constituents, many of whom are looking for wage raises. Merkel is lobbying for a non-permanent seat for Germany on the U.N. Security Council; some believe she is angling for a permanent place.







5. Hilary Clinton

Diplomatic breakthroughs are rare. And while Clinton, a former first lady and U.S. senator, brings star power to the State Department, she has yet to notch a triumph beyond resetting the button in U.S.-Russian ties and the Turkey-Armenia treaty. She has put her skills on the line with an umpteenth attempt to broker Middle East peace. No one discounts her continuing contributions to the plight of women worldwide: victims of rape in Congo and of flooding in Pakistan and the millions of mothers exposed to dangerous cookstoves.

What does `Horoscope` really mean


 We are all Familiar with Horoscope. As small children we used to ask each other: `` What sign are you``? Some children teased others who had a diffferent sign ( they often said: Gemini beats Pisces, Libra is  bigger and stronger than Aquarius..-you get the picture). But Horoscope is not about that. Horoscope can be described as a Future Forecast.
A real horoscope is a MAP of Space-Time - an "image of the hour" as the Greek root words imply. It is a chart of where the Sun and Moon and Planets are located in Space and in relation to each other, and to a particular place on Earth, at a particular instant in Time. You may describe it as a snapshot of "a particular place in Time and Space". If that instant in Time is the time of birth of an individual and the Space is his birth place, then that horoscope is called a "natal horoscope" or "natal chart" or "birth chart". When you ask an astrologer for "a birth chart" be sure to provide your month/day/year and town/state/country of birth (plus the hour/minute if you know).


 What the average person calls "a horoscope" is actually a reading of that particular map of Time and Space, or an interpretation in words of that horoscope chart's symbolic meaning.
Some people are concerned about whether this whole Horoscope thing is true. Well, one thing is for sure- If you know an Astrologist, who knows how to read Stars- it's true. Do not believe in horoscopes from magazines, because they probably have not hired an Astrologist just to read stars for them. You may think the horoscopes you read from them are true, that what you just read under your sign is true, but believe me - it is just a coincidence. It is for you to believe in them, to bring you Faith. (God, I feel like telling someone Santa doesn't exist) :)

Billionaire John Kluge Dies Age 96






For a time, Kluge was the richest man in America. In 1989, his $5.2 billion fortune put him at the top of the Forbes 400. Three years later, a well known to us man, Bill Gates, overtook him to claim the title.
Kluge was self-made, and built his Metromedia TV empire from scratch with a $4 million investment. When after a while he sold the company to WorldCom in 2001, it was worth $1.3 billion. However, he wasn’t always as savvy with his investments; his restaurant chains Ponderosa and Bonanza filed for Chapter 11 in 2008.

The Sound in a Shell- Hallucination??


Do you Remember when you were a kid, and whenever you found a sea shell you held it near your ear to hear the sound of the sea? Most of us does it till today. The clear sound kept within the shell is marvelous and so beautiful.... But how exactly is the sound captured or heard inside the shell?? What makes the shell sing the song of the ocean?



It is predictable most likely that the sound inside the shell as we all can hear is actually an ambient noise from around you. The seashell that you are holding just slightly above your ear captures this noise, which resonates inside the shell. The size and the shape of the shell therefore has some effect on the sound you hear. Different shells sound different because different shells accentuate different frequencies. You don't even need the seashell to hear the noise. You can produce the same "ocean" sound using an empty cup or even by cupping your hand over your ear. Incredible! I only wish we knew this when we were naive little kids back then...






Lightning Strikes Again

It is common knowledge that lightning is generated in electrically charged storm systems, and that many of them are mostly deadly, dangerous and even unpredictable.


During thunderstorm conditions the turbulence in the cloud causes the charges to separate in such a way that the negative charges concentrate in the base of the cloud. Since like charges repel, some of the negative charges on the ground are pushed down away from the surface, leaving a net positive charge on the surface.
Opposite charges attract, so the positive and negative charges are pulled toward each other. since the negative charges (electrons) are many thousands of times smaller than the positive charges (ions--charged atoms) they move much more easily and cover most of the distance. This first, invisible stroke is called a stepped leader.

The Story of a Butterfly

As we may or may not know, butterfiles ar the messengers of nature, not only adding brilliance to their surroundings but also pollinating flowers and revealing healthiness of our communities. Historically, butterflies have been revered in art and lore but otherwise they have been ignored. Today, however, we are beginning to realize the many benefits of these smaller wildlife forms.

The role of butterflies is important in our natural world. Their sheer numbers supply a vast food source for predators, and they are significant plant pollinators. If plants are not pollinated, seeds and fruits are not produced. Not only they are very hardworking and delicate creatures, they bring colour and fantasy to our nature.

Oil Disaster- Wild Animals in Danger



So much damage the recent oil spill had done. Not only to the plants, which were depended on the local water, but also many people have lost their jobs. There is no possibility to the fishermans to start fishing, the water is so poisoned that it affected millions of fishes.

Animals too, suffer harsh days while the oil is still leaking from the bottom of the ocean. Animal rescuers try to do their best to rescue those animals, but many of them are too late. How would you help ?

Underwater Robot set to study Deepwater Horizon Spill


The Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute's Division of Marine Operations, under an agreement with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sent a high-tech robotic submersible to the oily waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The goal is to collect information about the oil plume from the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig accident for NOAA.

Although satellites and aircraft can help show the extent of the spill at the surface, MBARI's autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) will help researchers understand the nature and extent of any plumes of oil that may be hidden beneath the surface of the ocean. The MBARI AUV is being deployed from the NOAA Ship Gordon Gunter in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The Gordon Gunter departed from shore on Thursday, May 27th. The AUV was launched into the waters of the Gulf for the first time on May 28, 2010.

It is the warm wind that makes you want to breathe. It's the fish that colour the water. It is a reason you want to live....

It may sound silly, but in fact, those little babies have a great magic in today's world. The beads are one of the most selling products and there is a reason why. Women love shiny items, necklaces, earrings, and what is not to like in colourful beads??

There are now thousands of shops that only open to sell one product- beads. And this is no silly idea. They are sold in huge amounts every day. Some people import beads from another country, like china or Africa, as because they are quite cheap there.
So if you are, however, thinking about your own business, why not consider opening a bead-shop?? Necklaces and braceletes were and always will be a top selling product in today's world.
