Here are some strange people and animals!!!!
“Most people are not aware that these kinds of experiments have been taking place in the U.K. and find it deeply offensive. Parliament should follow France and Germany and prohibit the creation of animal-human hybrid embryos.”
What do you think about this half human and half Dog?
In our louder and louder world, says sound expert Julian Treasure, “We are losing our listening.” In this short, fascinating talk, Treasure shares five ways to re-tune your ears for conscious listening — to other people and the world around you.
Jennifer Flach was a college junior when her wisdom teeth started causing problems.
“My other teeth started moving around,”she remembers. “The wisdom teeth were pushing out and undoing some of the orthodontic work I had done in high school.” At the same time, her brother — who’s two years younger and was also in college — had no symptoms. But the family dentist said his wisdom teeth should come out, too.
Jen and her brother had back-to-back surgeries. They recovered together at home during spring break. “It was quite a week at my parents’ house,” she says.
Patrick Grother was 26 when his dentist said his wisdom teeth might need to be removed. His bottom left wisdom tooth had come partway into his mouth. But a flap of gum still covered it. “The dentist said food would get trapped there and it could get infected,” he says. Patrick visited a periodontist, who said that the gum flap could be cut away but would grow back.
Patrick eventually had the wisdom teeth on the left side of his mouth taken out.
A few people are born without wisdom teeth. Others have enough room in their mouths for the teeth. But many of us, like Jen and her brother, get our wisdom teeth taken out as young adults. And like Patrick, many of us are first alerted to the problem when our wisdom teeth can’t come in all the way.
If that happens, part of the tooth may be covered by a flap of gum. Bits of food and bacteria can get trapped under the flap. This can cause swelling and a low-grade infection called pericoronitis. This usually happens with lower wisdom teeth. Pericoronitis, and the pain it causes, are the most common reasons people need wisdom teeth taken out.
There are other reasons to have your wisdom teeth removed:
But more serious complications can occur:
Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed. But if there’s a chance your wisdom teeth will cause problems, it’s easier to take them out when you’re young. That’s because the roots of the teeth are not fully developed yet, and the bone around the teeth is less dense. Younger people also heal faster than older ones. As you age, it will take longer to recover from the surgery.

A wind farm is a group of wind turbines in the same location used for production of electric power. A large wind farm may consist of several hundred individual wind turbines, and cover an extended area of hundreds of square miles, but the land between the turbines may be used for agricultural or other purposes. A wind farm may also be located offshore.
Many of the largest operational onshore wind farms are located in the USA. As of November 2010, the Roscoe Wind Farm is the largest onshore wind farm in the world at 781.5 MW, followed by the Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center (735.5 MW). As of November 2010, the Thanet Offshore Wind Project in United Kingdom is the largest offshore wind farm in the world at 300 MW, followed by Horns Rev II (209 MW) in Denmark.
Please read another article from this site about generating additional revenue from any wind farms. The following lovely pictures demonstrate different views on wind turbines, as well as on different wind farms across the globe:
TRIZ is a Theory of Inventive Problem Solving, abbreviated from Russian language. It is mostly related to technical problems. It could be explained as a problem-solving, analysis and forecasting tool derived from the study of patterns of invention from the global patent literature. It was developed by the Soviet inventor and science fiction writer Genrich Altshuller and his colleagues, beginning in 1946. Following Altshuller’s insight, the Theory developed on a foundation of extensive research covering millions of inventions across many different fields to produce a theory which defines patterns in the nature of inventive solutions and the distinguishing characteristics of the problems that these inventions have overcome.
TRIZ includes a practical methodology, tool sets, a knowledge base, and a model-based technology for generating new ideas and solutions during problem solving process. It is intended for any application where following activities can be performed:
Mostly based on technical problems, the TRIZ, when mastered, is capable of helping engineers, technologies, and scientist to reduce an average time for arriving to the proper solution by a fraction of days, hours, even minutes, by cutting the cost of R&D and engineering man hours.
The writer of this post managed to apply TRIZ methodology in solving any other problems, other than technical by using Rapid Development Tool, which allows you to find a solution to, practically, any problem, such as:
It also help you to reduce decision making process by at least 50%. Please come back for more information when it will be available.
Books on Inventions and Inventors
Inventions exist as long as the human civilization exists. For the past thousdands of years there have been millions of inventions created by people. Only in the USA there have been issued over 6 million patents since the United State Patent and Trademark Office started. A Brief History of the Patent and Trademark Depository Library Program The Patent and Trademark Depository Library Program began in 1871 when federal statute (35 USC 12) first provided for the distribution of printed patents to libraries for use by the public. Below is the Wall of Famous Inventions:
In September 2000, I received as a birthday gift a fascinating type of thermometer invented by Galileo hundreds of years ago. Unlike most other types of thermometers, it is colourful and aesthetically pleasing.
by Greg Hegill
What Is It?
A galilean thermometer is a sealed vertical glass cylinder mostly filled with a clear liquid. Submerged in the liquid are several smaller glass bulbs, each having a tag indicating a particular temperature. As the temperature changes, the smaller glass bulbs will rise and sink (see How It Works below). The temperature is read by looking at tag attached to the lowest floating bulb.
How It Works
The galilean thermometer works due to the principle of buoyancy. Buoyancy determines whether objects float or sink in a liquid, and is responsible for the fact that even boats made of steel can float (of course, a bar of steel by itself will sink).
The only factor that determines whether an object will float or sink in a particular liquid relates the object’s mass to the mass of the liquid displaced by the object when submerged. If the object’s mass is greater than the mass of liquid displaced, the object will sink. If the object’s mass is less than the mass of liquid displaced, the object will float.
In the figure above, there are two objects, each a cube 10 cm by 10 cm by 10 cm (the figure is not to scale). The mass of water displaced by an object of this size is 1 kg. The brown object on the left is floating because the mass of water it is displacing (0.5 kg, half the object is submerged and half is above water) is equal to the mass of the object. The green object on the right has sunk because the mass of water it is displacing (1 kg) is less than the object’s mass (2 kg).
Not all objects made of the green material above will sink. In figure 2, the interior of the green object has been hollowed out. The total mass of the object is now 0.5 kg, yet its volume remains the same, so it floats half way out of the water like the brown object in figure 1.
In the galilean thermometer, the small glass bulbs are partly filled with a different (coloured) liquid. Each is filled with a slightly different amount, ranging from lightest at the uppermost bulb to heaviest at the lowermost bulb. The clear liquid in which the bulbs are submerged is not water, but some inert hydrocarbon (probably chosen because its density varies with temperature more than water does).
Figure 4 shows a schematic representation of my thermometer at two different temperatures (the temperature markings on my thermometer are in Fahrenheit).
