Fact : Do you know ? There is a no radio signal zone in world.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know in the Durango Desert in Mexico.

image

There’s a creepy spot called the ” Zone of Silence “. You can’t pick up clear TV and Radio signals and locals says fireballs sometimes appear in the sky.

image

Native government even tried to built some telephone towers in the area but due to some unknown reasons all trials failed.
Some experts says that there is some kind of disturbances in magnetic fields of earth while some believes that there is some kind of alien interference in the area but none of these believers have any evidence to prove.

Fact : Do you know ? What came first chicken or egg.

Posted on Updated on

Which came first chicken or egg ?

image

Few of you might say that egg came first because egg is the building block of the chicken , no chicken can be born itself.
Others may say that chicken came first because they lay these eggs.

image

But the real truth is now discovered .
According to Scientists –
Chicken came before the egg because the proteins which makes egg shells is only produced by hens. And the first hen must be by the genetic disorder of any other species that is supposed to be extinct before the birth of very first human.

Fact : Do you know ? Of what material currency notes are made of.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that Money notes are not made from paper, they are made mostly from a special blend of cotton and linen.

image

Its constituents are 75% cotton and 25% linen.
That’s why when by mistake you wash money notes in your clothes pockets, maximum time  they won’t tear apart, sometimes if you notice they look like new notes too.

But that doesn’t means that you keep on washing notes.

Fact : Do you know ? Your sneeze can fracture your rib cage.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that Sneezing is such a common involuntary activity that every locomotive living being suffers from it. Not only humans but also animals like dogs, lions, etc. also had it at least once a month.

image

A research found that human being can sneeze up to 100 miles per hour.
Minimum speed of sneeze can be 30 miles per hour.

Much like a temperamental computer, our noses require a “reboot” when overwhelmed, and this biological reboot is triggered by the pressure force of a sneeze. When a sneeze works properly, it resets the environment within nasal passages so “bad” particles breathed in through the nose can be trapped. The sneeze is accomplished by biochemical signals that regulate the beating of cilia (microscopic hairs) on the cells that line our nasal cavities.

image

Part of the message the brain receives in the leads up to a sneeze is to close those eyes. It’s an involuntary reflex similar to the way your knee reacts when your doctor taps on it with that tiny hammer. A sneeze can’t, however, pop your eye out, like some story tales that you have believe.
But if you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib. If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in head or neck and die eventually.

Fact : Do you know ? There is no place on earth where humans don’t live with rats.

Posted on Updated on

Rat, mouse, rodents whatever you call them do you know they are the only animals after dogs which are always found with humans everywhere.

image

In fact, except underwater, extreme high mountains, space and moon there is no place in the universe where human has survived without a rat. Rats are also found in Antarctica.

This small creature is sometimes helpful to humans but most of the times it creates problem, precisely lots of problems, they dig in the floor, gnaw books and cloths, etc.
Do you know there are several species of rats which can dig 100s of feet in a single night.
Point to be noted, favourite time of these little monsters is the night time. 90% of their damage is done in the nights.
Although their lifespan is not too long, but their teeth never stop growing till death.
They don’t love gnawing, they do so to get rid of extra long teeth. So it doesn’t matter to a mouse, what is in his mouth it could be a wooden furniture, ceramic tile, baby toys, anything except metals.

image

Do you know rats  can live up to 2 months without drinking water and they are better than dogs if it comes to sniffing business. And their memory is also good in comparison to their size. A small mouse can remember every path it has travelled on through its whole life. So don’t even think that you can get rid of them easily.

Fact : Do you know ? Gravity is almost equal at all places of earth crust but still there are some exceptions.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know there is less gravity in few areas of Canada with respect to other parts of earth.

In the 1960s, scientists began to chart Earth’s gravitational fields. You would expect that gravity be the same across the world. It’s not like you feel incredibly heavy in the United States while you practically float around in South America. You always feel the same gravitational pull.

image

However, they found that gravity actually did vary. In Canada, there are certain areas with less gravity than normal. The Hudson Bay, for example, is “missing” gravity.

There are two theories as to why this may be true.

1. One theory cites convection as the cause. Convection pulls the Earth’s plates downward, which decreases the mass in that area and decreases the gravity.

image

2. The other theory cites the Laurentide Ice Sheet as the cause. The Ice Sheet melted 10,000 years ago and left a huge indent in the Earth, which could mess with the gravity.

Global warming topic of concern and its solution.

Posted on Updated on

Global Warming, Global Warming, Global Warming.
The most burning topic of scholars nowadays, every body is talking about facts, data, stats, etc. but nobody is talking about solutions.

image

Developed Nations point of view : New emerging or so called third world countries (developing countries) causing maximum imbalance in nature.

3rd world’s point of view : Developed countries has already did their part in last century in industrial revolution period and now pushing the cause on emerging nations.

Well, to be honest both of the perspectives are absolutely correct.
3rd world needs space to be called developed world but all of the space is occupied by developed world. To be honest time is not good for all this now.

Time is for change. According to data from the World Meteorological Organization, carbon emissions increased by their fastest rate in 30 years in 2013. Greenhouse gasses are 142 percent higher than they were before the Industrial Revolution, and experts are now certain that human activity is contributing to global warming.

Their are many technologies to stop all this but these technical equipments are too much costly for developed nations to afford how could we ask developing countries to invest in it.

Many people are waking up to the fact that working toward a healthy and sustainable future is something we all have to commit to if we want to save the planet. As technologies are honed, more people will have access to clean energy from the sun and other renewable sources. The advancements in biomass are exciting, and we, as a society, have more reason than ever to hope for a great tomorrow.

What are Biomass Fuels?
When something burns, its energy releases in the form of heat. When the wood in a campfire burns, the campers utilize that heat. This is an energy transfer, which can be harnessed in a variety of ways. Scrap lumber from the construction, timber, paper, and demolition industries are common sources of biomass fuels, but other organic materials or crops, such as corn, hemp, soy, cow manure, and some types of waste are also being utilized. Unlike fossil fuels, which will eventually be used up, these fuel sources can be renewed. In doing so, we also create jobs and boost the economy. There are currently 142,000 jobs in the solar industry, and experts believe this number will continue to rise. In 2013, the industry grew 41 percent, its greatest expansion yet.

Biomass power plants burn the fuels to create heat that runs steam-powered turbines. Unfortunately, as of now, these plants are still less efficient than those that utilize fossil fuels. As the technologies continue to improve, biomass fuels will be capable of creating more power and possibly even surpassing petroleum in efficiency. In 2010, the biomass industry produced carbon-neutral electricity that accounted for about 4 percent of the energy requirement in the United States. The solar and biomass industries are working hard to increase that figure, and the market is showing a demand for it.

image

What are the Benefits of Biomass Fuels?
Cutting down on emissions and protecting the quality of the air.
Reducing global warming.
Making use of waste that would have been burned or put in a landfill.
Protecting forest by removing branches or fallen debris that could block trails or lead to forest fires.
Offering essentially limitless potential for growth, as technologies are always developing.
Allowing for the creation of a wide variety of products.
Are There Any Negatives to Biomass Fuels?
The biomass industry faces many challenges. Making use of waste is a wonderful thing, but creating biofuels from scratch requires additional resources, such as land, other types of fuel, water, and time. Certain biofuels, such as manure, create methane gas, which damages the ozone layer as much as fossil fuels. However, these fuel sources are still worth exploring because of their sustainability.

Research is ongoing, and future technologies could solve many of these problems. It will most likely be discovered that certain biomass fuels will be better utilized in different areas, with factors like the local economy, industry, and environment coming into play.

Fact : Do you know ? How large is biggest egg of the world.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know that ?
Ostrich’s egg is the largest single cell ever discovered alive.

image

Its size is approximately equal to the size of a football.

image

As we know that a cell is the smallest living organism and also the smallest building block of life and every human being is made up of billions of such cells.
But do you know that each HUMAN BEING spent about half an hour of as a single cell in the beginning.
