Bitter nature of life.
30. September 2020 at 12:09
by Omkareshwar Jha
So many times the harsh lessons of your life are learnt by acting wise bitter. It hurts and that is what sometimes teach more then any way of compassion or love. Bitterness if it is present it can be use as stimulus or an agent.

The quality of our life depends upon the mentality of ourself. One can be happy by just having an ice cream and in other hand someone can have all possible luxuries and still be worried.. So the question is Why?? 


Love and compassion towards anything in life teaches us a lot and makes us comfortable but the life is nasty & bring up the situations where we loose happiness in those things which are around us. Our mental control can change such situations just by having two acts of life.. first is that we understand that something is worrying us. And second is the way out from that state of mind. It happens anyway its just that we can notice it to have some better control on us.

The energy we get from food to fuel our bodies is quantified in kilojoules. Fatsfats, and carbohydrates, within the foodstuff, give strength.The primary energy usage of their human body is just four kJ / kilogram of body weight per hour every day. Therefore, the Principal energy consumption of an individual can be computed as follows:

The science behind mental health: Mental health is full of misconceptions, the most common of which is that mental illness is rare when, in fact, one in four people in the world are affected at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide.

by Success Eko
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children after accidents (Joanne et al., 2000) and the second most leading cause of death in the world after cardiovascular diseases (Jemal et al., 2008). Cancer is a transmutative process which advances from steady metamorphosis of genetic cells to the internal selection processes acting on the acquired phenotypic diversity. It usually develops when normal cells in the body grows rapidly.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in women after skin cancer in the United States. Chemopreventive measures such as chemotherapeutic drugs against this cancer have consequent adverse side effects but some dietary phytonutrients have been identified to play better prominent roles against this type of cancer. The aim of this work is to investigate the inhibitory roles of dietary phytonutrients against some target protein receptors of breast cancer and compare their binding energies to that of the standard breast cancer chemotherapeutic drug, Tamoxifen.

And the thing is that when you read many books you get so many ideas that you’ll naturally start writing a story.

So how does reading affect our lives:

1. It reduces bodily stress. In 2009, the University of Sussex did a study that showed that half an hour of dedicated reading is better for your stress levels than several other more traditional methods of relaxation, like having a cup of tea or listening to music. It reduced stress levels by up to 68 per cent. It is because when we emerge inside a book the tension on our muscles reduces

ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is the official space agency of India. Recently, ISRO launched the Chandrayan 2 which is bound to be a successful mission and is one of the biggest space exploration missions in ISRO’s history. Another famous and one of the biggest missions that defined the brilliance of ISRO was the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).

The goal of the mission was to orbit a satellite called the ‘Mangalyan’ around planet Mars. ‘Mangalyan’ was launched on November 5th, 2013 and has been orbiting planet Mars since September 4th, 2014. The mission was successful and proved to be a name-maker for ISRO in the whole world. Not only was the mission revolutionary, but a lot of people got motivation from ISRO as they accomplished the mission in their first attempt and with a budget much less than that of NASA’s Mars mission (the Mars rover one).


However, not many people know about the struggles of scientists, engineers, and technicians involved in the Mars Orbiter Mission. They had to work extra hard due to limited fundings and a then insufficient budget for a mission that grand. The real story of the Mars Orbiter Mission has now been rele...

How Memory Impairment Is Related To Age Nowadays
27. July 2019 at 12:04

Thinning of hairs, overgrown beard, and a bulging abdomen are some common signs of aging which do not cause much discomfort. Most men learn to accept some deficiency in physical strength, energy, and sexual desire. In fact, men learn to compensate for these gradual changes and spend years of creative and joyful years of aging. But one of the greatest Traits of aging is the combination of experience, judgment, and memories. We call it ‘wisdom’.

2500 years ago, Sophocles, one of three ancient Greek Tragedians said, "Men are learning to become wise in aging" maybe because of this treasured wisdom that older people are worried about their memory deficits than any other age-related changes. This concern is not unreasonable, as about 7% of people over 65 have a ‘cognitive impairment’ condition and 40% of people over 85 have a major mental condition. Aging is unbearable, however, medical research shows that mental deficits can be prevented.


Increasing age can even affect the best of the brains. Learning new things takes time as new information is thoroughly processed in the brain and the details can be a lot to handle. As the names suggest, short-term memory is lost quickly, however, long-term memory stays. Of course, aged people who are health...

Antibiotic Resistance

Humans developed antimicrobial drugs to destroy diseases caused by microbes. The most common known antimicrobial is antibiotic which targets the bacteria. At the beginning of the 21st century the antimicrobial resistance has become very common, so we have to understand this phenomenon scientifically to prevent it from becoming a fatal disaster later.

Bacteria are prokaryotic microorganisms that have the ability to enter the body replicating and growing causing serious diseases. Antibiotics agents interfere with specific processes that are essential for growth and/or division either for killing bacteria or at least stopping their growth. But How Drugs Interfere With Bacterial Growth And Division?


Proteins are important components in the cell to function normally, so some antibiotics inhibit the protein synthesis by inhibiting ribosomes thus stopping protein synthesis which results in bacterial death.


 Folic acid (one of B vitamins) can’t enter the bacteria, so the bacteria have to synthesize it, as it is important for the bacterial growth, by the help of a certain enzyme called dihydropteroate synthase. Antibiotics like...

Following the Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 air crash in October 2018 that killed 189 people, the U.S. Transportation Department launched an inquiry into the Boeing 737 MAX.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the U.S. Transportation Department which has been probing the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) approval of the 737 MAX especially its new anti-stall control system known as MCAS (Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System) has warned two FAA offices to safeguard computer files. 


The Seattle Times also reported that Boeing’s original 737 MAX safety analysis of MCAS that was used by FAA to certify the aircraft had fundamental flaws. According to the report, the system had too much power and lacked redundancy. The situation may have been compounded by FAA rules that permit aircraft manufacturers to self-certify.

Learning new languages is a good brain exercise that doesn’t only have tangible effects on one’s personality, but it also does wonders to the brain structure and the wiring among the neurons.

Bilingualism refers to a situation when a child confronts two distinct languages at the same time . Bilingualism is closely related to the phenomenon of language acquisition the particular way in which we all learn our native language as children. We acquire the skill, and even if we have to work on our writing, speaking seems as natural as breathing. Scientists claim that language acquisition is a process that starts at the beginning of our lives and ends around puberty. Bilingualism was considered a must be avoided method in raising children to prevent some myths and misconceptions that greatly prevailed in the beginning of 19th century.
