Lasik Surgery, Solution to Eye Problem

Do you have eye problems? Tired of wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses? Maybe it's time to learn this new alternative way now. Try LASIK SURGERY.

Introducing Lasik Surgery. It is a medical procedure that uses laser technology to correct eye problems. This offers the patient of fast recovery and definitely no pain is being endured during the surgical process. This procedure can offer a reduce of using eyeglasses or contact lenses and rather eliminate the need of using those anymore.

Lasik surgical operation is often performed in the US. The Stahl Eye Center has great doctors that perform the lasik surgery. If interested, visit this websites below for more information.

Lab-grown Meats Versus Livestock Meats

What would you prefer between lab-grown meats or livestock meats? In the near future, meats grown in labs will be successfully done replacing the traditional meats from livestocks. Scientifically and technically, making use of lab-grown meats will satisfy the increasing demands of people for meat worldwide and reducing the factor of raising and slaughtering of livestocks. But, taking the thought of it, how the lab-grown meat be differs with that of livestock meat?

Well, there'll be no differences between the two because the process of growing of tissues for the growth of meat in the labs will be the same as the process of what we call the natural healing or regeneration of tissues of human and animals. This technique has been already used such as in medical fields. This extensive studies about lab-grown meats which are now already in the process are pushing through the purpose of reducing the livestock farms. Other factors are:

  • Avoiding animal suffering by reducing the farming and killing of livestock.
  • Dramatically cutting down on food-borne ailments such as mad cow disease and salmonella or germs such as swine flu, by monitoring the growth of meat in labs.
  • Livestock currently take up 70 percent of all agricultural land, corresponding to 30 percent of the world's land surface, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. Labs would presumably require much less space.
  • Livestock generate 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than all of the vehicles on Earth, the FAO added. Since the animals themselves are mostly responsible for these gases, reducing livestock numbers could help alleviate global warming.

  • Now, we can have pork, chicken and beef meats without raising pig, chicken, and cow. But it will depends on how people will catch up with this kind of technological process. Some would not be favor but others will be at it. Nevertheless, the future will tell us so.

    Cooking Popcorn Using Cellphones

    This is the most ridiculous thing I really heard of and ever watched. There are people claim that you can cook popcorn using cellphone radiation. For me that kind of situation is really busted.

    Cellphone radiation and the concept of microwave oven are totally different. With that of cellphones, radiation frequency that it emits is not really capable to excite water molecules in order for a certain food to be cooked. Besides, the low power it gives off is totally not as high compare to microwave ovens. Cellphone radiation frequency is much lower compare to microwave ovens. In fact, the frequency where the microwave ovens operate is the only frequency that can only excite water molecules and is specialized in cooking or heating up.

    Just imagine if cellphone radiation can really cook, when you receive calls and your cellphone was in your pocket and it rings for long period, your skin should be cooked by that time. But it's not, right?
    If you are still gonna believe, experiment it yourself and wait for the kernel of corn to pop. Hope that time will come. GoodLuck..

    Here is the sample video from Youtube...

    Human Blood Gives Light at Night

    This sounds cool that a bloody night would make your dark night a bright night. It may sounds ridiculous but it's true for Mike Thompson, an English Designer based in The Netherlands, invented this lamp that runs by a human blood.

    I can't really imagine that if you like to light up your night, then you really have to cut yourself to bleed and make your blood acts like a night lamp. Would you reluctantly think of cutting yourself to bleed just for a light? That's really a big wow for me.

    Thompson came up with this gruesome idea when he was studying his masters in Design Academy Eindhoven in Netherlands. He came to research with chemicals and found his way to luminol. This is the chemical used by forensic scientist to check traces of blood at the crime scene.

    On the picture, Thompson made a special glass to act like a light bulb. To use it, you have to mix first the activating powder and break the upper portion of the glass to cut yourself to bleed. upon bleeding, you have to drip your blood into the opening. I don't know how long it can be used but don't waste it because it can be used only once.

    Maybe, Mike Thompson just want to emphasize that energy consumption is not just taken for granted. For every consumption we make, there is an energy being consumed that we might not retrieve back for it is limited. It's all about energy conservation. Who would think that he will use up all his blood just to waste energy for something that just not worth something. So, when it is not needed, better to conserve energy. Very nice analogy from Mike Thompson.

    Cyclone, Hurricane, and Typhoon are Different

    We know that cyclone, hurricane, and typhoon are all just the same. And I thought of that, too, before. But not in our awareness, these three things are definitely different from each other though they share common thing as a storm, indeed.

    Deciphering the differences between the three storms will lead to the fact from where they are being formed. In other words, their origin and location. Hurricane forms in Atlantic or Eastern Pacific. So apparently, the storms that threaten the United States of America are all hurricane. On the other hand, typhoon typically forms at Western Pacific and endangers most countries like Japan, Philippines, Island of Guam, etc. While cyclone forms at some location within Southern Pacific.

    They say that typhoon is stronger than hurricane but cyclone is not as prevalent as hurricane. But whatever they are, the three are dangerous storms. One thing we don't know about the storms is that, a storm that begins at the upper part of the equator rotates clockwise and storm that begins at the lower part of the equator rotates counterclockwise. Don't ask if a storm can cross over the equator and it will change direction of rotation because as of now, it never happens and air currents won't permit storms to crossover the equator.

    Now we know the differences among cyclones, hurricane, and typhoon.

    Shark: May the Fittest Fetus Survives

    "I really can't believe about this thing that shark fetuses eat each other while they are in their mother's womb. It some kind of cannibalism but I can't even think it will take as early as they are only fetus."

    "You know what, the great white sharks and tiger sharks keep their eggs inside their body until the eggs will mature and be hatched ready to be born. It may take a year or so before the baby sharks be completed and born. So, maybe it was the reason why they kill and eat each other in order to survive. It's just like a survival of the fittest and if you're weak, you'll be eaten up. From 60 babies that are destined to be born, only 2 will be left instead and will experience to be born."

    "Sharks don't take care of their babies. Once they are born, they will live alone and learn everything by instinct. Sharks are loners and don't know the essence of a family or friends for companionship."

    "This is really true for the sharks. Just be thankful that in humans or other animals, with two or more fetuses inside the womb are not meant to be like of that sharks. Imagine, if all fetuses will kill each other to survive, it's very hard to exist."

    Genetic Manipulations Link to Human-Animal Hybrid

    "It is very absurd to think that in the future, blending of species especially human to animal blending will be possible. But how far scientist had gone to make out things such us genetic manipulations? Nowadays, science has no limit and it is just continuously exploring and discovering the things that are yet unexplored and undiscovered. But if it is, I'll ask you, would you like genetic manipulation to be practiced as it will alter species into mixed, trans-species, and hybrid ones?"

    "For example, what if human-animal hybrid existed and there was a new creature of human-dog
    hybrid. What kind of look it will have? Ridiculously thinking of it will picture out like this. Have a look on this picture. Don't be shock because it is not true! It was an artwork and sculptured by Patricia Piccinini during her exhibition "We are Family" on 2003. Was it so awful and so gross to see a hybrid like this. I can't even take this kind of scenario in the future if ever. But I hope, as much as possible, we will not come into this. Even it is just an artwork, for me, it is so disgusting to see that the replica of our body from God has been mixed with that of animal's body. Still, I consider the human body as a sacred temple of human's borrowed-soul from God."

    "How about taking this another side where genetic manipulation will be used in medical fields. Think about when somebody just got severely burned and skin grafting is recommended for a surgery and they would rather graft a pig's skin. Are you ready to take that risk for you be able to replace that burned skin of yours? Of course, you will neither understand nor answer this question unless you will be in that scenario. But how about chimpanzee's heart to replace your deteriorating heart? If it's the only way in the future, can we accept it? Seriously, I, myself, can't answer this."

    "It will remain a big question for me. After you read this, I don't know what has come into your mind after I fed you this kind of scenario. But I will apologize to those that I might offended their religious belief."

    "If this time will come, don't be amazed that one day in the far future, you will just see or have a company of hybrid creatures. Imagine if those Greek mythical creatures, mermaid, etc. will exist in the future because of genetic manipulations. That will be a big OMG..."

    A Real Life Colony of Zombies


    "Wow, when I hear the word Zombie, the first thing would come in my mind is Frankenstein. Frankenstein was an icon of horror movies before. Zombie is a dead people who happens to come back to life again. Well, at this point of life, I neither heard nor seen a dead people coming back to life again as zombies. It's too creepy if really there was."
    "But now, it's different. We have real life zombies but of course, it's not in the form of human. Guess what? ANTS. Yes, the carpenter ants. It was discovered by scientists that there really zombie ants. I read an article from confirming this stuff."

    "But what makes these ants to be a zombie. It's all because of a fungus. This fungus makes the ant a walking dead. Once ants get infected, the fungus will take over the brain of the ants and controls everything. The fungus makes the ants to climb down from their nest up in the tree. What is amazing about the fungus was that it controls the ants to clamp down with his mandibles to the low leaves. The infected ants already had fungus growing within their body and after dying, the fungus will spontaneously grows until it willl breakout from the body of the ant. It will take a week or two to breakout. From the breaking, the spores of fungus is now free to fall. That's how fungus meant to spread through out the forest and infect another ants again."

    "I really couldn't imagine how fungus makes this to the ants. Even scientists are clueless about the magic that controls the ant's brain by this fungus. I just hope that it is not infectious to humans. I don't want to become a zombie just because of this fungus. Luckily, I'm not an ant and I'm very thankful to that."

    Carbon Scrubber to Save the Earth from Global Warming

    "Carbon scrubber? What is this? If you take the literal meaning, it means a tool use to scrub carbon. Still confused? Well, don't take it literally because it's not as what it is. Why would you scrub carbon for what? If you wanna know the answer, just keep in reading then."

    Carbon scrubber is a new way to clean air. This means that carbon scrubber will help reduce carbon dioxide content in the air by filtration process. This will extract the carbon dioxide and separate it from the air making the air to be reduced of excess portion of CO2. This is existing now and used at home. But how will it help to lessen the Global warming if it will just accomodate only as large as home place. Well, this is the scientists and physicists are pursuing on how will it be designed to efficiently say it will help fight the global warming.

    "Actually, scientists are already in the process to build a prototype of carbon scrubber. As featured in "Project Earth", a TV program aired by Discovery Channel and I watched it, they had built the prototype already and performed experiments to test if it was successfully attained the goal. And the result, a success one. Here is the photo of the said prototype."

    "But how this prototype works? As you can see, the horizontal tube which happens to be the fan will be the one to suck up air inside the prototype. Once the air is captured inside, the air will be sprayed with sodium hydroxide solution which will be responsible for capturing the CO2. Once sprayed, air will passed another filtration in the honeycomb padding and then the cleaned air will go its way out in the opening at the top of the tower. The carbon dioxide that was captured will be frozen and disposed of properly. This experiment was a success one with the used of new technology. They have used carbon dioxide detector and was interpreted by computer how the content of CO2 in air was reduced when it passed the prototype. The testing process lasted for almost a day long and no failure was recorded."

    "This is such a good and promising invention we have today. But the problem is, putting up an industrial size carbon scrubber would cost billion of dollars. Implementation is still a problem but I hope this would be pursued. "

    Does Sun Shrinks or Grows?

    "I always think about the sun if it grows or shrinks. Well, either of the two, if it happens to be, still a bad thing for most of the planets in our solar-system, even for us mankind. How can I say that it is a bad thing, well take this assumptions for you to be clarrified."

    "If sun shrinks/shrinking, then we most likely losing the better position where Earth is just enough to receive sunlight. If the sun shrinks, it just likely to be the sun is going to be a bit far from us where the enough sunlight we intend to receive will be lessen until such time the sun's energy is not enough to bring life to Earth. Inadequate solar power means a zero chance for life to continue. But it's not shrinking because...(read the next paragraph)"

    "...because, the sun is growing. Yeah, you read it right and it was according to the astronomer that sun is growing. In fact they say that it is growing every year but so minimal that we can't even notice that it was. But according to their estimation, a few billion years from now and if earth is still here, the sun would be bigger enough to fry us and vaporize the planets that came to be near from the sun. If it will going to happen then our scientist is making a move about it if we can stop such catastrophe or else it ends everything."

    "Don't get me wrong about sharing this one to you. I'm not even frightening everyone here about the case they assumpted. It just happen that I read about it and share it with you. Who knows, one of us will be scientist to think of ways to avoid the assumpted case. Good for us then."

    Ice Glaciers to Flood the Earth

    "Have you ever think what will happen when the Ice sheet in Antarctica will melt down? You should know it right now because it's really a disaster when it happens. Read this carefully to know what will going to happen if ever it would melt down."

    The Ice Sheet in Antarctica holds about 90% of the world's ice. Yes, that's huge. We are experiencing the phenomenon of Global Warming which nearly in the future if warming continues, no doubt that Ice Sheet will melt down. If it happens, the sea level will rise for about 220 feet, nearly a height of a 20-story building. We cannot hide the fact that the melting process is now underway and the worst-case scenario will depends upon how the global temperature rises every year. By 2100, sea level would jump up for about 3 feet or 1 meter.

    "If Global warming continues, all of us will suffer. Find ways to stop global warming to ensure the safety of the next generations of mankind as well as the nature."

    Knowing the Moon and Thunder

    "I'm here again to share something that I know you would like to know. Some may knew it already but others will only be. These two things are always be familiar to everyone but knowing them further will likely to be a good one. So let's start now and talk about Moon and Thunder."

    Moon is known to be the natural satellite of the Earth. According to the scientists, moon has used to be much closer from the Earth billion years ago. It was estimated that Earth is already been 4.5 billion years old right now. Moon is much closer from Earth before that it took only 20 days to revolve around the Earth to make a month. Yes, it was 20 days a month before and only 18 hours to make a day. But moon had moved away from the Earth and still moving to keep a distant from us. It was said that every year moon is moving away for about 1.6 inches or 4 cm. As it moves away, Earth's rotation would slows down making the day to lenghten. Not far in the future, we will going to have a 960 hours long to make a day.

    Thunder is the roaring sound we hear whenever there is a storm or bad weather. But where really thunder coming from. I'll bet you, you will answer "lightning" which is not really is. For a brilliant answer, it's really the air that surrounds the lightning when it strikes. The air around the lightning is being superheated knowing that lightning bolt is 5 times hotter than the temperature of the sun. This sudden heating makes the air to expand faster than the speed of sound and then compressed that forms a shock wave. For that reason, we can hear it as a thunder.

    "Now we know already these two things, the moon and the thunder. So until next again, see yah..."

    Cases That Will Destroy Earth

    "Did something ever subject your mind to think how Earth will be destroyed? That would be considered as absurd thinking because you are just making a point how mankind and everything will end. But scientifically thinking, (keeping the safe side of mine that I really don't want Earth be destroyed), what if there really is and how?"

    Well, here will be some cases of bad scenarios that will subject Earth from being destroyed if ever. But of course, before we go through, neither of these being listed are said to be possible but just in case.
    • Existence failure. Will giving it by chance that the atoms which were making up the Earth just suddenly, simultaneously, or spontaneously cease to exist. Got a point there but these scenario would be a ridiculous one.
    • Sucked into a microscopic black hole. A black hole that is probably a man-made one. If you watched Spider-Man 2 where Doc Oc created a machine that slowly becoming like a blackhole. Microscopic blackhole will be placed on the surface of the Earth and it will slowly absorbed every matter until everything sucked up including earth. Sounds impossible but what if there will be a wicked scientist that could invent like this. OMG.
    • Vacuum Energy detonation. This is a fun one. Contemporary scientific theories tell us that what we may see as vacuum is only vacuum on average, and actually thriving with vast amounts of particles and antiparticles constantly appearing and then annihilating each other. It also suggests that the volume of space enclosed by a light bulb contains enough vacuum energy to boil every ocean in the world. Therefore, vacuum energy could prove to be the most abundant energy source of any kind. Which is where you come in. All you need to do is figure out how to extract this energy and harness it in some kind of power plant - this can easily be done without arousing too much suspicion - then surreptitiously allow the reaction to run out of control. The resulting release of energy would easily be enough to annihilate all of planet Earth and probably the Sun too. (source: "3001: The Final Odyssey," by Arthur C. Clarke")
    • Sucked into a Giant Blackhole. What if there would be a giant blackhole suddenly appear near the Earth and suck the Earth. If there would be, that surely be a scary scenario.
    • Pulverized by a big Impact from Outer Space objects. Just like in the movie "Armageddon", possibility of hitting the Earth by a huge heavenly bodies that will give a great impact enough to pulverize the Earth.
    • Being Hurled into the Sun. What if the earth losses track from its orbit making Earth pulled by Sun's gravitational force. It will be definitely the end because anything goes into the sun, destroys.
    "So frightful to think ways like this. But as much as possible, all of these should not happen at any instances. If so, you are not going to read this article of mine because we don't already exists. Thank God it's not."

    Eyes of Different Fascinations

    "Have you ever wondered why there are different kinds of eye colors? What color is your eyes are? Well, probably your eye color depends on what race you are and by how you genitically inherited it straight from your parents."

    "From different races around the world, Asians are dark-brown and black eyed persons. While Europeans and Americans are blue, green, and hazel eyed persons."

    "If you ask people what eye color do they want, they would probably answer a blue one and some green instead. But if I would choose, i'll have the green eyes because my eye color is dark brown. I really love that green color because green is refreshing."

    "People may achieve the eye color they want by wearing contact lenses. It's an artficial way of changing the eye color but not permanently. Contact lenses are commercially available in the market so anyone can have it if they want. But be careful on wearing this because our eyes are very sensitive so give an extra care to avoid irritations."

    "Some would ask if the colors of the eyes have a respective meaning. As I surf the internet, I found some descriptions of eyes according to its color. Read this."
    • Black eyes - If you have this, you are probably a fast learner, wise and smart, and a story teller.
    • Bluish green eyes - You are passionate, creative, beautiful, quiet and a deep thinker. You are an artist.
    • Hazel eyes - Being proud, helpful, a decision maker are your character.
    • Grey eyes - You are beautiful and deep thinker. For men, they could be probably a priest or historian.
    • Green eyes - Unique, hard to find, strong feeler, stubborn, different, very proud, quick-witted and tempered, strong willed. Your role is a Warrior.
    • Blue eyes - Pure at heart, passionate, lovable, very caring and kind, beautifu. Your role is a painter.
    • Brown- you are stubborn, proud, smart, strong, leader, wanting, creative, driven. Your role in a society would be the leader.
    "So, some finds it to be true and some would not. But whatever it is, yourself is your own judge. I just want to share this you but not insisting you to believe whatever descriptions we have here. Anyways, I hope I shared something new to you today. Have a good day then."

    Spread Your Wings, Butterfly

    "When there is a flower garden, no doubt butterflies are also there. Butterflies fed on flower's nectar as well as the bees. Let's take a look on butterfly and the mysteries behind their colorful wings."

    "Since we know that butterfly came from a caterpillar through the procees called metamorphosis, we'll some kinda talk more about their wings. Well, if you already seen a butterfly wings, you will notice a dusty particles or powder form materials when being touched. These are not really a powder nor dust but a tiny scales that cover the entire the wings. It's like a protective cover and these scales are considered to be the tiniest scale ever."

    "These scales are the one responsible why the wings of butterflies are colorful. There is an ability of these tiny scales to aborb certain wavelength of light to be visible. We know that light has different wavelengths of each has different colors. The tiny scales of same property are grouped within the wing and that is why there are color patterns."

    "These color patterns of the tiny scales play a great purpose. Butterfly uses this as defense mechanisms. Since they are prey for the birds, their wings gives them a security from being captured. The birds are more attracted to the wings so when the birds try to hunt down butterflies, birds miss the body of the butterfly because they aimed the wings instead. This is why when you see butterflies with their wing ruined, it was done by the birds."

    "So nice to know that their wings are not just only to make them beautiful and able to fly, but also a tool for their defense mechanism."

    A Past Life on the Red Planet

    "Mars is the red planet of our solar system and considered to believe that there's a life form within the planet. It will be considered a great breakthrough in science history if Martian life is proven. I would likely to stick and wait about the Mars exploration team to investigate further if Mars could ever have a past life or a life existing to it right now."

    Here, I will share to you some 5 cases for Martian life that I just watch from the youtube.

    1. It's somewhat shares some and a lot of similarities just like the Earth. It has terrain and unlike other planets which are all gas. It has an atmosphere and weather as well.

    2. There was a speculation of water exists on Mars. As far as there is water, a big chance to have a life form. As there were photos taken from the Mars, they found traces and signs of water on the surface soil of the planet.

    3. But until July 31, 2008, NASA confirmed the presence of water by the soil sample taken by the Phoenix Mars Lander.

    4. NASA detected the presence of methane on Mars. Methane is a gas that usually produced biologically by living organism and that was 90% of the Earth atmospheric methane and 10% was produced geochemically by the interaction of rocks and water. It was January 2003 and June 30, 2004 when European Space Agency confirmed the presence of methane on Mars but it does not say where the methane came from.

    5. Methane source has been found. Nasa scientists announced on January 15, 2009 that they found the specific region on Mars that emits large quantity of methane. They don't know what produces methane underneath the ground but they are sure of it was biologically produced by some kind of living organisms.

    "These improvements in investigating life on Mars are really intriguing. Who knows from the future, we might see Martian people living on the red planet."

    Here is the video of Mars from Youtube courtesy of Discovery Channel.

    Talking about Honeybees

    "The sweet honey is produced by honeybees by collecting nectars from the flowers they visited. It is so sweet that everybody loves it. If you are watching cartoons and know Winnie the Pooh, all he eats is honey. But I'm not making an article about honey because I love sweets ( nah, frankly I don't like sweets), it's because I have a lots of trivia I want to share to you. Let's talk about honey and honeybees."

    "Did something ever strikes your mind to think how many flowers do honeybees have to visit just to make a tablespoon of honey? Well, I will let myself answer that for you. An average honeybee can make only one and one half (1 1/2) of tablespoon in her entire life. For the bee to make a tablespoon of honey, she have to visit roughly 62,500 flowers and about 93,750 flowers to visit in her entire life. Imagine that number of flowers for just a tablespoon of honey. It's really a big wow. Bees have an average life span of 45 days so it means a 45 days just to visit 93,750 flowers for 1 1/2 tablespoon of honey."

    "Did you know that honey don't expires? Yes, it's definitely not because of its high sugar content that almost kills bacteria that tries to inhabit within a honey. For a proof, a honey had been discovered from Egypt. A honey of 2000 years old was not expired and even taste more delicious. It's ridiculous but true."

    "Now you know how amazing a honey and honeybees are. So if you ever like to pet a honeybee, give her a huge number of flowers. Ciao"

    How Little the Twinkling Stars are?

    "At night when the stars are brightly shining up in the sky is the perfect time to have star gazing. But have you ever wondered how big the stars are?"

    "There are billions of stars we can find outside our solar system. They are countless as they are more than the grains of sands all over the world. Stars are very much far from our solar system where I think when you start traveling from here to the nearest star except our Sun, you're certainly don't have enough time of life to reach that star. But then, going back to the question, how big is the star?"

    "Well, astronomers made the Sun as the basis to measure the size of the star. As we know that Sun is a star itself. The smallest stars so far known by the astronomers are the red dwarfs. You may or may not believe that the size of these stars are roughly 10% of the Sun's radius or about 70,000 km. You know that Earth has a diameter of approximately 14,000 km. Yet some of stars are hundred of times bigger than our very own Sun. Yes, that was how big a star is? That was the reason behind why it still visible at night though it very much far from our solar system. So far, Belteguese is the largest star being discovered is roughly and approximately 600 times bigger than the sun. Amazing, isn't it?"

    Now, are you still gonna sing the nursery song, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars"?

    Two-headed Baby Born

    This is not a movie scenario anymore. Anything or something impossible can be possible. But the fate of this baby is too odd for her. She was being born with two head. Yes, you read it right, it's a two-headed baby.

    I really dreamed of having a twin but their case is really rare and odd. Who would actually like the situation having a twin who shares one body. I'm not questioning what God's plan is but it's really hard to believe what reality have brought to us.

    Anyway, this baby was born last July 28, 2009 in Philippines. They were observed to have two hearts and two spines just enclosed in one cavity, and two brains but shares lungs and kidneys and the rest of organs. The doctors says if they had one heart, then they are not going to live long and survive. But in their case, doctors try everything to make the baby survives.

    Same case has been reported in Indonesia but unfortunately they died on the day the two-headed baby born in Philippines. The twins just lived for only 5 days.

    Are you the Ugliest Fish?

    "I am one of the ugly fishes", said Blob Fish.

    Have you ever seen this fish? A fish? Yes, it is absolutely a fish, and it is called the blob fish. It may look very gross but don't got me wrong because it's really a fish. You take a look at it very close, you may mistakenly picture it out as an old man's face, probably an old man's face from cartoons.

    This fish can be seen in Australia and Tasmania. It is rarely be seen because it inhabits in deep waters. It lives beneath the depths of sea where extreme pressure is than of normal sea level. It looks gross because of its gelatinous body of which density is slightly less than the water. this fish lacks of muscle but not a disadvantage for them to eat because they feed on floating edible matte in front of them.

    If you'll ask me if this fish is edible or safe to be eaten, then I think, NO. Even so it is edible, who would dare to eat such kind of fish. Can you manage to eat this? Well, it's up to you if you would like to. It may be like a jelly when eaten of fish flavor. Goodluck then.

    Human Cloning: Is Possible and Acceptable?

    "We have seen movies that shows human cloning. I just wonder if human cloning will be possible though we know that there were successful cloning experiments done using animal as the medium. For sure you know that Dolly was the famous cloned sheep. But the question is, do the religious groups and government will allow and tolerate human cloning?"

    "I admit to myself that my greatest dream is to have an identical twin. I really think of it that having an identical twin is really fun. Because I don't have a twin, I abruptly think about human cloning will grant my greatest dream. But when will it be possible?"

    "On the other hand, the religious groups, especially the Catholic Church, really don't want to practice human cloning. This is because according to the belief it is against to the will of God and it is very unethical. But what if it happen that we cloned human and it made new life but unsuccessfully copied the real human because of deformities and unexpected errors. Is it okay to kill that clone? That is really a big question to think and answer."

    "For the sake of science, they say that in the future, we really need this kind of method. They are on the process of formulation that this might help to cure the uncurable disease and to immense the capabilities of humans."

    "But what is like to be cloned? Will it inherit the same knowledge or more than than of the human being cloned ? Will it have the same character and attitude from the human being copied? Well, these things will just be answered if human cloning is already been done. As of now, these are big questions remained to have no answer."

    Global Warming: The Earth is on Fire

    "Do you ever feel changes or something strange around you? Guys, I know you are. Everything changes and you can actually pinpoint what are those changes. I guess, I think, I supposed that the picture on the left has the literal meaning that earth is on fire. Going deeper into that, I bet you it's Global Warming."

    "I, as an ordinary people, walk on streets everyday and notice everything I see and feel how environment treats me or human treats the environment. I see cars, trucks, and motor vehicles running down the streets that emit carbon mono/dioxide into the air. Even people who consumes cigarette for the reason I don't know why they smoke. Factories are competing to belch smoke as they produce their goods. Keen observing makes me just realized that all these stuffs contribute to make Earth set on fire."

    "Unfortunately, I can say that changes on climates caused by global warming begins the end of everything. Ice glaciers gradually melt down, forests fire triggers, weather abnormalities manifest leading to disturb the season cycles."

    "Guys, I just noticed that last summer was not not really a summer. I don't even enjoy the summer vacation because the whole season is just like a rainy season. This is a clear evidence of season disturbances caused by global warming. I'm starting to be scared off because what I see from movies just like from the movie The Day After Tomorrow might actually happen in real life. For God's sake, I hope it would not happen."

    "I'm happy to see that we have researchers now that find solutions to stop the global warming itself. I actually watched it from TV or read from the internet that they make steps to put solution of killing the global warming. For now, we know on ourselves that on our own unique way, we can contribute to stop global warming. Just think, think, and think how and then implement at the end."

    "Let's work on making the Earth green again."

    Children Of New Generation: Not easy to Take Care Of

    "I personally observed this kind of changes nowadays. I have a nephew and my mom is taking care of him. For about my surprise, what he does right now is not too easy to handle unlike when we, my siblings, were still kids before. They are more rebellious compared from kids before. Not only my nephew but all other kids in our neighborhoood shared this same kind of traits. They act to be like spoiled brats even though we do not tolerate it."

    "What they want to do are always or should be given or else they will stumble and cry out loud. Imagine these kids really love to play, but playing too much or watching TV programs up until midnight is not an ordinary situation. Maybe I may blame that we have been modernized and we lived in city but I think is not very considerable factor. Right?"

    "I can't imagine my child will be like that someday. But I'm hoping they will not be as too hard to handle. They can play as much as they want, watch their favorite TV programs and have the things they want. But there is such limitatons I want to implement. I know time will come those traits they are showing right now will constantly disappear as they grow older. I have been once a kid and I know the right time will fixed things."

    Weird and Elongated Skull of the Ancient

    A weird looking skull was discovered by archaeologists near the Siberian city in Omsk, Russia last January 2009. This elongated skull is only one of the several skulls that had been found in the nearby forest. The archaelogists of Omsk's Museum of History and Culture dated this skull from around 4th Century A.D. but still clueless from where it was originated.

    An explanation has been formulated that this skull is deliberately deformed during the infant age with the possible reason of increasing the mental abilities. Another explanation is the possibility that this person has been subjected as a living instrument of great mental capabilities that may determine a danger or predict weather conditions. But whatever it was, it's totally weird that they could practice rituals like this. If so, ancients do this for what they know that is right for them. It's a part of their culture.

    Here is the video of the elongated skull.

    HRP-3 Promet Mk-II and HRP-4C: Japan's Newest Robot

    It's undeniable that Japan is taking ahead in terms of technological advancements. So far, they are known for creating humanoid robots that can dance and walk like humans. Asimo of Honda tells it all.

    But speaking of the latest, HRP-3 Promet Mk-II whose photo is at the left, is the most recent humanoid robot of Japan. It stands 5'4'' tall and has the abilty to walk on slippery surface. This robot is a water-proof robot meaning that he can even take a shower. It's really a human replication. HRP-3 Promet Mk-II cost 15 million Yen or roughly $120,000 USD.

    Another humanoid robot is HRP-4C. She is a girlbot having her catwalk debut as a fashion model in Tokyo, Japan. She stands 5 feet tall taking like an average Japanese girl at an age around 19 to 29. Primarily, this android consists of 30 motors in her boy that enables her to walk and move like a human. Another eight facial motors for enabling her to have facial expressions like blinking, smiling, and even expressing emotions of anger and astonishments. HRP-4C was designed by Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology and cost for about $200,000 USD.

    As of now, we know that some time in the future we will be having robots that look like from the movie iRobot. It's not impossible for we have the technologies that can lead to an impressive creations.

    Moon Conspiracy: Hoax or Not

    There are lots of speculations that the landing of man on the moon had never happened. For they said that the video from the moon showing Neil Armstrong's landing was a fake. Just like the swaying of the flag on a vacuum space, the footprints left, the walking on the moon with 1/6 of earth's gravity were totally unbelievable they said.

    But, we have several people came to prove that man had ever landed to moon. Based on their experiments which proved that the conspiracy about the flag, footprints, and walks were totally wrong. In the conspiracy, flag should not sway in a vacuum space, footprints will not appear because there is no presence of water or vapor on the moon, and controversial movements while walking, hopping, and floating on the moon. All of these were showed in the video from the moon.

    The truth is:
    1. Swaying of the Flag. Mythbusters conducted experiments in two different settings. Sway the flag in atmospheric pressure level and a vacuum space. The results gave an amazing conclusion. In atmospheric pressure, the flag swayed for about 3 second or so. But under vacuum space, flags swayed in a tremendous amount of time compared on atmospheric pressure. Surprising isn't it? Take note that the swaying is done on the same level of force.

    2. Footprints. In the conspiracy, there must be no footprints left on the moon. But in the experiment using the vacuum space in laboratory revealed that footprints will actually be left even in vacuum space. This proves that water vapor or the water is not the main factor for making a footprint.

    3. Walking on the moon. In the conspiracy, the walks that Neil Armstrong showed in the video were done using harness and wires. By the experiments conducted by Mythbusters, using of harness and wires are impossible to replicate what Neil Armstrong did in the video and even using special effects. But using simulation of zero gravity, or rather a true replication of moon's gravity, it proves that the walks made by Armstrong were authentic and true. This experiment used the same space suit as what Armstrong worn and only his exact body weight was considered.

    So, this conspiracy is actually hoax and busted. The moon had been already visited by a man and that is true...
