Albert Einstein's Logic Puzzle

So you want a hard brain teaser! Well, here it is.
It's purported that Einstein said 98% of the world's population could not figure out this logic problem. Try your hand at it.

There are 5 houses each with a different color. Their owners, each with a unique heritage, drinks a certain type of beverage, smokes a certain brand of cigarette, and keeps a certain variety of pet. None of the owners have the same variety of pet, smoke the same brand of cigarette or drink the same beverage.

Clues:

  • The Brit lives in the red house.
  • The Swede keeps dogs as pets.
  • The Dane drinks tea.
  • Looking from in front, the green house is just to the left of the white house.
  • The green house's owner drinks coffee.
  • The person who smokes Pall Malls raises birds.
  • The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill.
  • The man living in the center house drinks milk.
  • The Norwegian lives in the leftmost house.
  • The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who keeps cats.
  • The man who keeps a horse lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill.
  • The owner who smokes Bluemasters also drinks beer.
  • The German smokes Prince.
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
  • The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water.
If you know the answer, just sent me an e-mail... or you can share with other guest how long you can solve this case... or... maybe you share some additionals clue for your friends... of course dont share your answer...

Ghost Lab

Im sorry... I'm not available for a long time.. Cuz im still a student so, i have to finish my examination first... Im really really sorry...

Ghost... what do you think about that word?? something bad?? something that sometimes following you?? They can see us, but we can't see them... Now, what happened if we try to make or find or something else to the unseeing creature??


Maybe one of you have already known about this TV programme... but i just share what i think interested...


Ghost Lab is a weekly American paranormal documentary television series that premiered on October 6, 2009 on the Discovery Channel. Produced by Paper Route Productions and Go Go Luckey Entertainment, the program is narrated by Mike Rowe. It follows ghost-hunting brothers Brad and Barry Klinge, who founded Everyday Paranormal (EP) in October 2007.
Everyday Paranormal is a paranormal investigation team whose stated mission is to "visit the most haunted places in America, find evidence, and test new theories to probe the existence of the afterlife" using a fringe-scientific approach.
In addition to Brad and Barry, the team included members Steve Harris, Hector Cisneros, and Katie Burr. Other members included Jason Worden, Ashlee Lehman (Formerly Ashlee Hillhouse), and Steve Hock. Ghost Lab remains the name of EP's mobile command center.
On October 14, 2009, Brad and Barry Klinge were interviewed on The Pat & Brian Show about the origins of Everyday Paranormal, current investigations, and equipment use. On October 30, 2009, Larry King interviewed the brothers via satellite on CNN's Larry King Live.

You can watch this TV programme from their official website here

Equipment and techniques used

During investigations, the team used various investigation equipment, including thermographic cameras, infrared cameras, digital audio recorders, data loggers, EMF meters, laser thermometers, motion detectors, and EVP recorders, as well as a mobile command center called the Ghost Lab, which featured interactive computer monitors, noise filtering audio programs, and various high tech gear. The team also used a variety of paranormal theories to test out some of their techniques during an investigation.

SYNOPSIS

A man (Jake Gyllenhaal) wakes up on a train sitting across from a woman named Christina Warren (Michelle Monaghan). The woman seems to know him by the name Sean Fentress, but he doesn't seem to know her and appears uncertain of his own identity. After eight minutes, a bomb goes off on the train, and the man awakens to find himself strapped inside a small geodesic dome. There, Air Force Capt. Colleen Goodwin (Vera Farmiga) explains to him through a computer screen that he is actually Colter Stevens, a decorated army helicopter pilot, now on a mission to locate the maker of a bomb which destroyed a train headed into Chicago. This is to be accomplished using the Source Code, a time loop program that allows him to take over someone's body in a reenactment of their last eight minutes of life.

Stevens has no memory of how he became involved in the Source Code project; his last memory is of flying in a recent mission in Afghanistan while taking on enemy gunfire. Stevens' mission in the Source Code is to assume the identity of Fentress, one of the train's passengers, locate the bomb, discover who detonated it, and report back to Goodwin to prevent the bomber from detonating a larger dirty nuclear device in downtown Chicago, which could cause the deaths of millions of people. Goodwin and the Source Code's creator, Dr. Rutledge (Jeffrey Wright), tell him that the Source Code is not a simulation, but a visit into the past in the form of an alternate reality. He's told that he cannot truly alter the past to save any of the passengers, but that he must gather intel that can be used to alter the future and prevent a future attack. Goodwin assures Stevens that "everything will be OK."

The End of Space Shuttle Program

The end of the space shuttle program does not mean the end of NASA, or even of NASA sending humans into space. NASA has a robust program of exploration, technology development and scientific research that will last for years to come. Here is what's next for NASA:

Exploration
NASA is designing and building the capabilities to send humans to explore the solar system, working toward a goal of landing humans on Mars. We will build the Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, based on the design for the Orion capsule, with a capacity to take four astronauts on 21-day missions.

We will soon announce the design for the heavy-lift Space Launch System that will carry us out of low Earth orbit. We are developing the technologies we will need for human exploration of the solar system, including solar electric propulsion, refueling depots in orbit, radiation protection and high-reliability life support systems.

International Space Station
The International Space Station is the centerpiece of our human spaceflight activities in low Earth orbit. The ISS is fully staffed with a crew of six, and American astronauts will continue to live and work there in space 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Part of the U.S. portion of the station has been designated as a national laboratory, and NASA is committed to using this unique resource for scientific research.

The ISS is a test bed for exploration technologies such as autonomous refueling of spacecraft, advanced life support systems and human/robotic interfaces. Commercial companies are well on their way to providing cargo and crew flights to the ISS, allowing NASA to focus its attention on the next steps into our solar system.

Aeronautics
NASA is researching ways to design and build aircraft that are safer, more fuel-efficient, quieter, and environmentally responsible. We are also working to create traffic management systems that are safer, more efficient and more flexible. We are developing technologies that improve routing during flights and enable aircraft to climb to and descend from their cruising altitude without interruption.

We believe it is possible to build an aircraft that uses less fuel, gives off fewer emissions, and is quieter, and we are working on the technologies to create that aircraft. NASA is also part of the government team that is working to develop the Next Generation Air Transportation System, or NextGen, to be in place by the year 2025. We will continue to validate new, complex aircraft and air traffic control systems to ensure that they meet extremely high safety levels.

Science
NASA is conducting an unprecedented array of missions that will seek new knowledge and understanding of Earth, the solar system and the universe. On July 16, the Dawn spacecraft begins a year-long visit to the large asteroid Vesta to help us understand the earliest chapter of our solar system's history. In August, the Juno spacecraft will launch to investigate Jupiter's origins, structure, and atmosphere. The September launch of the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project is a critical first step in building a next-generation Earth-monitoring satellite system.

NASA returns to the moon to study the moon's gravity field and determine the structure of the lunar interior with the October launch of GRAIL. In November, we launch the Mars Science Laboratory named Curiosity on its journey to Mars to look for evidence of microbial life on the red planet. And in February 2012, we will launch the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array to search for black holes, map supernova explosions, and study the most extreme active galaxies.

Ice Cream Ball - Play & Freeze Maker

How to make ice cream in this clever contraption.



Ice Cream Ball - Play & Freeze Maker
Just when you thought making ice cream was old hat, someone comes out with a cool contraption that makes you work for your dessert. With the Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker, there's no need for electricity. Just add ice and rock salt in one end and ice cream mix in the other end--then have a ball as you shake it, pass it, or roll it. The ice cream mix can be as simple as cream, sugar, and vanilla, but the footwork on the ball is all you.

    Materials

    The Play & Freeze Ice Cream Maker comes in two sizes - standard and mega. You'll also need the ingredients to make ice cream. Here's the basic vanilla recipe...

    Basic Vanilla Ice Cream

    • 1 pint of Half & Half*
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1/3 cup + 2 Tablespoons sugar
    • Ice
    • Rock salt
    *Using whole cream makes a richer, creamier ice cream. Using part milk and Half and Half makes a lighter ice cream, but takes longer to freeze. Yield: about a pint of smooth and creamy ice cream.

    Experiment


    1. Fill the ice end with as much ice as possible and then add 1/2 cup of rock salt. (MEGA: Add 3/4 cup of rock salt).
    2. The lid should be hand tightened - do not use the wrench! Mix up your ice cream ingredients in a container, then pour the mix into the end with the metal cylinder, leaving about an inch for expansion at the top.
    3. Hand tighten the lid. Have a ball! Shake, roll, and pass it around as you mix and freeze the ingredients. It's not necessary to shake the ball...just motion will do it! After about 10 minutes (15 for the MEGA ball) open the ice cream end using the included plastic wrench.
    4. Scrape the sides of the cylinder to mix up the ice cream using a plastic or wooden spoon (don’t use a metal spoon as it will scratch the cylinder). Then check the ice end.
    5. Pour out the excess water and add more ice and up to 1/3 cup more rock salt to enhance the freezing ability. Close the lids securely and continue having a ball for approximately 5–10 more minutes. (15 for MEGA)
    You now have about a pint (or quart for the MEGA ball) of delicious soft-serve ice cream. The consistency will vary based on the ice, your mix, the outside temperature, shaking frequency, etc. Once the ice cream is to the consistency of your liking, gently scoop it out, and enjoy!

    How does it work?

    What does the salt do? Just like we use salt on icy roads in the winter, salt mixed with ice in this case also causes the ice to melt. When salt comes into contact with ice, the freezing point of the ice is lowered. The lowering of the freezing point depends on the amount of salt added. The more salt added, the lower the temperature will be before the salt-water solution freezes. For example, water will normally freeze at 32 degrees F. A 10% salt solution freezes at 20 degrees F, and a 20% solution freezes at 2 degrees F. When salt is added to the ice, some of the ice melts because the freezing point is lowered.

    Always remember that heat must be absorbed by the ice for it to melt. The heat that causes the melting comes from the surroundings (the warmer cream mixture). By lowering the temperature at which ice is frozen, you were able to create an environment in which the cream mixture could freeze at a temperature below 32 degrees F into ice cream.

    Color Mixing Wheel - Sick Science

    Create a wheel that will show you color and color mixing in a new way


    Color Mixing Wheel - Sick Science
    Our visual division here at Steve Spangler Labs loves the science of color mixing. We've mixed gels, fizzing tablets, and even different colored lenses together to get the secondary colors. We needed something new. So, we found an amazing way to combine scientific principles of physics with the visual science of color mixing. Our discovery isn't just visually spectacular, it's scientifically sound!

    Materials

    • White corrugated cardboard
    • Pointed tip scissors
    • Red, blue, & yellow markers
    • String or yarn
    • Safety glasses
    Color Mixing Wheel
    Color Mixing Wheel
    Color Mixing Wheel
    Color Mixing Wheel
    Creating the Color Mixing Wheel
    1. Trace a circle onto a piece of white corrugated cardboard. Try to get the circle to be between 4 to 6 inches in diameter. Use something like a cream cheese lid, sour cream lid, or pickle jar.
    2. Cut the traced circle out using the scissors.
    3. Trace 3 smaller circles on the cardboard disc. Try to make each of the circles equal in width. This will enhance the visual aspect of the experiment.
    4. Draw a single line through the middle of the disc that spans the entire diameter of the disc. Each of the three circles in the disc should now be divided in half.
    5. Color half of the smallest circle blue and the other half yellow. Color the middle circle half red and half yellow. Finally, color the largest circle half blue and half red.
    6. Grab an adult for this step: Using the pointed tip of the scissors, place two holes in the cardboard disc. Make sure the holes are an equal distance from the center of the disc and are about 1 inch apart.
    7. Use the scissors to cut a piece of string or yarn that is 4 feet long.
    8. Thread the string or yarn through each of the holes in the disc and tie the ends of the string together. Make sure the knot you tie is reliable and able to withstand a substantial amount of force. You are going to be tugging pretty hard on it.
    Performing the Experiment
    1. Start by holding the string on both sides of the disc with your hands. Make sure the disc is as close to the center of the string as possible.
    2. Spin the disc in a motion similar to a jump rope. This is a quick way to get the string wound up.
    3. Once the string on both sides of the disc is twisted, pull the string tight to get the Color Mixing Wheel spinning. It might take a little practice to get it just right.
    4. Once you have the hang of how the Color Mixing Wheel works, you'll be able to keep it going as long as you want.

    Observations

    You may have noticed that the colors you put on the Color Mixing Wheel were the three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. Once you started spinning the wheel, what did you notice about each of the three color circles on the cardboard disc?  What do you think makes this happen?

    How does it work?

    Let's start with the visual part of the experiment - color mixing.  The colors you put on the Color Mixing Wheel are the three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow.  When you combine two primary colors you get the secondary colors: green, purple, and orange. Obviously, the individual colors on the wheel are not mixing. The color mixing that happens is due to the speed at which the wheel is spinning as the string twists it.  The colors are spinning at such a rate that your brain is unable to process them as the individual colors that are on the wheel.  Instead, your brain takes a shortcut and creates the secondary colors.
    Now, why does the string continue to twist?  The answer lies in physics and, in particular, momentum.  Once you have the string twisted, pulling on each end causes it to go tight.  When the string is pulled tight, it wants to be completely straight.  In going straight, the string unwinds from itself and causes the disc to spin one direction.  But the string doesn't stop once it's unwound. It speeds past and gets twisted again.  The momentum from pulling the string tight keeps the disc spinning until all the momentum is gone. Then you pull the strings tight again and set the disc spinning in another direction.

    Eye Dropper Cartesian Diver

    Is it mind control or just a clever science trick


    Eye Dropper Cartesian DiverIs it mind control or just a clever science trick? It's a classic science experiment using an eye-dropper, a soda bottle filled with water, and some great showmanship. Explore the science of Cartesian divers while amazing your friends with your telekinetic powers. Yeah, right!
    This experiment is named after Ren Descartes (1596-1650), a French scientist and mathematician who used the diver to demonstrate gas laws and buoyancy.

    Materials

    • A plastic soda bottle with a cap
    • A glass eye-dropper
    • Water
    Experiment:
    1. Fill the plastic soda bottle to the VERY top with water.
    2. Fill the glass eyedropper 1/4 full with water.
    3. Place the eyedropper into the soda bottle. The eyedropper should float and the water in the bottle should be overflowing. Seal the bottle with the cap.
    4. Squeeze the sides of the bottle and notice how the eyedropper (called a diver) sinks. Release your squeeze and it floats back up to the top. Squeeze again and observe the water level in the eyedropper (it goes up). Practice making the diver go up and down without making it look like you're squeezing the bottle. Amaze your friends with your ability to make the eyedropper obey your commands!

    How does it work?

    Squeezing the bottle causes the diver to sink because the increased pressure forces water up into the diver, compressing the air at the top of the eyedropper. This increases the mass of the diver causing it to sink. Releasing the squeeze decreases the pressure on the air at the top of the eyedropper, and the water is forced back out of the diver.

    Dry Ice Crystal Ball Bubble

    It's the world's coolest crystal ball.



    Dry Ice Crystal Ball BubbleIt's the world's coolest crystal ball. Create a soap film on the rim of the bucket and you'll have what appears to be a crystal ball filled with a cloud-like mixture of water vapor and carbon dioxide.

    Materials

    • Large bucket with a smooth rim
    • Solution of dish soap and water
    • A piece of cloth 18 inches long
    • Gloves
    • Safety glasses
    • A few pieces of dry ice

    Dry Ice - Grocery stores use dry ice to keep food cold during shipping. Some grocery stores and ice cream shops will sell dry ice to the public (especially around Halloween) for approximately $1 per pound. It's a good idea to take a beverage cooler with you along with a pair of gloves to protect your hands. If you are planning to perform a number of dry ice demonstrations, plan to purchase 5 to 10 pounds.

    Experiment
    1. Dry Ice Crystal Ball BubbleSelect a bucket or container that has a smooth rim and is smaller than 12 inches in diameter.
    2. Cut a strip of cloth about 1 inch wide and 18 inches long (an old t-shirt works well). Soak the cloth in a solution of Dawn dish soap or use your favorite recipe for making bubble solution. Make sure that the cloth is completely soaked.
    3. Fill the bucket half full with water. Have tongs or gloves ready to transfer the dry ice to the bucket.
    4. Place two or three pieces of dry ice into the water so that a good amount of fog is being produced.
    5. Remove the strip of cloth from the dish soap and carefully pull the strip across the rim. The goal is to create a soap film that covers the top. It also helps to have the rim wet before you start. This may take some practice until you get the technique mastered. Remember that a bubble's worst enemies are dirt, oil, and rough edges. Your patience will pay off in the long run.
    Dry Ice Crystal Ball BubbleIf you accidentally get soap in the bucket of water, you'll notice that zillions of bubbles filled with fog will start to emerge from the bucket. This, too, produces a great effect. Place a waterproof flashlight in the bucket along with the dry ice so that the light shines up through the fog. Draw the cloth across the rim to create the soap film lid and turn off the room lights. The crystal bubbles will emit an eerie glow and you'll be able to see the fog churning inside the transparent bubble walls. When the giant bubble bursts, the cloud of "smoke" falls to the floor, followed by an outburst of ooohs & ahhhs!

    The Egg in the Bottle Trick

    How to get the hard-boiled egg into the milk bottle.


    The Egg in the Bottle Trick
    Here's a classic science experiment that is more than a hundred years old and is guaranteed to fool your friends. The original demonstration used a hard-boiled egg and a glass milk bottle. Since old milk bottles are hard to come by, here's a modern day version of the same experiment, only this time we're using a juice bottle and a water balloon. For even more fun, try our "eggsclusive" upside-down version of the trick!

    Materials

    • A wide mouth juice bottle
    • Hardboiled eggs
    • Several strips of paper (2 x 6 inches)
    • Matches
    • A few balloons
    • Water


    Warning: This experiment requires the help of an adult partner. Don't just pick any adult... try to find a smart one!
    1. Carefully fill the balloon with water so the balloon is about the size of a tennis ball. Tie it off. Make several balloons just in case the first one breaks!
    2. Rinse out the bottle to remove any leftover, sticky, slimy stuff that might be in the bottom. Before going any further, make sure that the water balloon is slightly larger than the mouth of the bottle.
    3. Here’s the challenge... Your job is to find a way to get the balloon into the bottle without breaking it. How are you going to do it? It’s important that you take a minute to test out some of your ideas before jumping ahead to read our solution. Keep trying! Once you've come up with your hypothesis, read on to find out our answer!
    4. Start by smearing some water around the mouth of the bottle.
    5. Have the adult light a match and set the strip of paper on fire. Quickly put the burning strip into the bottle. Be careful you don't accidentally burn your fingers.
    6. Immediately cover the mouth of the bottle with the balloon. In just seconds, the balloon will start to wiggle around on the top of the bottle, the fire will go out, and some invisible force will literally “push” the balloon into the bottle. That’s amazing!
    Now that you've mastered the trick, it's on to the next challenge. Can you get the balloon back out of the bottle? Use what you learned about air and air pressure to come up with a way to get the balloon back out. Here's a hint... Try sneaking a straw alongside the balloon when you pull it out. If the outside air can get inside the bottle, the water balloon will come out!
    Try it with an egg!
    Now that you've mastered the technique, repeat the steps above substituting a hardboiled egg for the water balloon. The trick here is to find an egg that is just a little bigger than the mouth of the bottle - medium size eggs work the best. The other little secret is to grease the mouth of the bottle with vegetable oil so the egg slides right in!
    The Upside-Down Twist
    All you need for this "eggciting" variation is a hardboiled egg, a bottle, several birthday candles, and a match.
    1. Carefully hold the wider end of the egg in one hand and slowly push two birthday candles into the narrow end of the egg.
    2. Light the candles (with the help of an adult) and sing happy birthday to the egg.
    3. Turn the bottle upside-down and slowly move it into position above the flaming candles.
    4. Allow the flames to heat up the air inside the bottle for just a few seconds and then place the bottle down over the candles. The candles will go out and with a "Pop!" the egg will squeeze up into the bottle.
    Want to get the egg back out so you can do it again? Try this, if you dare... put your mouth over the mouth of the bottle and forcefully blow air into the bottle. The egg should pop back out of the bottle right into your mouth! Can it get any cooler than that? (Check out the video called Egg in the Bottle - Upside Down Twist.)

    How does it work?

    In the traditional version of the Egg in the Bottle Experiment, the burning piece of paper heats the molecules of air in the bottle and causes the molecules to move far away from each other. Some of the heated molecules actually escape out past the egg that is resting on the mouth of the bottle (that’s why the egg wiggles on top of the bottle). When the flame goes out, the molecules of air in the bottle cool down and move closer together. This is what scientists refer to as a partial vacuum. Normally the air outside the bottle would come rushing in to fill the bottle. However, that darn egg is in the way! The “push” or pressure of the air molecules outside the bottle is so great that it literally pushes the egg into the bottle.
    In the Upside-Down Twist, the science is the same as the traditional Egg in the Bottle trick, but the whole thing is just inverted. It's a nice twist on a classic science demonstration.

    Buzkashi is the Afghan national sport. It is also a popular sport among the south Central Asians such as the Uzbeks, Hazaras, Tajiks, Kyrgyz, Kazakhs, Turkmens and Pashtuns. The Turkic name of the game is Kökbörü; Kök = "blue", börü = "wolf", denoting the grey wolf—the holy symbol of the Turkic people. Other Turkic names of the game are Ulak Tartish, Kuk Pari, Kök Berü, and Ulak Tyrtysh. Kökbörü is the most popular national sport of Kyrgyzstan. In the West, the game (Turkish: Cirit) is also played by Kyrgyz Turks who migrated to Ulupamir village in the Van district of Turkey from the Pamir region.

    The carcass of a headless goat used in Buzkashi

    Competition is typically fierce. Prior to the establishment of official rules by the Afghan Olympic Federation the sport was mainly conducted based upon rules such as not whipping a fellow rider intentionally or deliberately knocking him off his horse. Riders usually wear heavy clothing and head protection to protect themselves against other players' whips and boots. The boots usually have high heels that locks into the paddle of the horse to help the rider lean on the side of the horse while trying to pickup the calf. Games can last for several days, and the winning team receives a prize, not necessarily money, as a reward for their win. Top players, such as Aziz Ahmad, are often sponsored by wealthy Afgans.
    A Buzkashi player is called a Chapandaz. It is mainly believed in Afghanistan that a skillful Chapandaz is usually in his forties. This is based on the fact that the nature of the game requires its player to undergo severe physical practice and observation. Similarly horses used in Buzkashi also undergo severe training and due attention. A player doesn't necessarily own the horse. Horses are usually owned by landlords and highly rich people wealthy enough to look after and provide for training facilities for such horses. However a master Chapandaz can choose to select any horse and the owner of the horse usually wants his horse to be ridden by a master Chapandaz as a winning horse also brings pride to the owner.
    The game consists of two main forms: Tudabarai and Qarajai. Tudabarai is considered to be the simpler form of the game. In this version, the goal is simply to grab the calf and move in any direction until clear of the other players. In Qarajai, players must carry the carcass around a flag or marker at one end of the field, then throw it into a scoring circle (the "Circle of Justice") at the other end. The riders will carry a whip, often in their teeth, to fend off opposing horses and riders.
    Buzkashi is often compared to polo. Both games are played between people on horseback, both involve propelling an object toward a goal, and both get fairly rough. However, polo is played with a ball, while Buzkashi is played with a dead animal. Polo matches are played for fixed periods totaling about an hour; traditional Buzkashi may continue for days, but in its more regulated tournament version also has a limited match time.
    The calf in a Buzkashi game is normally beheaded and disemboweled and has its limbs cut off at the knees. It is then soaked in cold water for 24 hours before play to toughen it. Occasionally sand is packed into the carcass to give it extra weight. Players may not strap the calf to their bodies or saddles. Though a goat is used when no calf is available, a calf is less likely to disintegrate during the game.
    A game of kokpar

    Rules introduced by Afghan Olympic Federation
    1. The ground has a square layout with each side 400 meters long.
    2. Each team consists of 10 riders each.
    3. Only five riders from each team can play in a half.
    4. The total duration of each half is 45 minutes.
    5. There is only one 15 minute break between the two halves.
    6. The game is supervised by a referee.
    7. Based on the referee's decision a rider can be substituted during the game.

    A similar game is "kokpar", a traditional Kazakh game played on horseback in which two teams of players compete to carry a headless goat carcass into a goal.

    Candiru, The Amazon's Most Feared Fish

    Maximum Length: Up to 6 inches
    The Amazon's Most Feared Fish: The Candiru is a terrifying fish, even when stacked up against its fellow river monsters of the Amazon. But this parasitic freshwater catfish does not instill fear by way of its monstrous size. On the contrary, it's small, eel-like and so translucent that it can be nearly impossible to spot in the water, which makes it even more terrifying. Some claim this fish is the most feared in the entire Amazon region, and the fear stems from the fact that it has a knack for finding open orifices and working its way inside. Once inside another organism, the Candiru feeds on its host's blood, becoming increasingly swollen. The Candiru is the star of an urban legend — which turns out to be true — of a man who was urinating in the Amazon River when a 6-inch Candiru swam up his urine stream into his penis. The fish remained there for days, until a surgeon was able to remove it. The Most Horrific Candiru: Perhaps the most horrifying Candiru species of all is the Candiru asu. This small catfish is a voracious parasite. It uses its circular mouth and sharp teeth to bite flesh and then enter organisms, leaving behind a wound that looks uncannily like a bullet hole. The Candiru asu proceeds to feed on the organs, literally eating its victim from inside. Human corpses have been discovered in the Amazon filled with more than 100 of these river monsters. Scientists and coroners have determined that the victims may have even been alive and simply incapacitated when the Candiru asu struck. candiru catfish In Jeremy Wade's Words: "The candiru usually targets a big fish as its host, drinking blood from its gills, but occasionally they make mistakes. This has resulted in one of the most infamous legends to emerge from the Amazon: a man urinating in the river who has a fish swim up his penis."

    Clingstone Mansion



    This house is truly amazing. Not only because of his age who has been 103 years but also because it was founded in the middle of the sea. It is said that this house has stood since 1905, precisely on the rocks of Rhode Island in the middle of the sea. The house was often called Clingstone.

    The house is quite large and quite comfortable. The house was built by JS Lovering Wharton, at a cost of 36,000 dollars, a distant cousin Henry Wood (79), which is now the owner.


    Henry Wood with his ex-wife bought it in 1961 for $ 3600 U.S. dollars. Later he became the mansion renovation and is now an attractive and comfortable and has been inhabited for two decades more.
    It was Wood's remarkable discovery.



    Imagine the house has 23 rooms, and Wood still maintaining room architecture and its settings like 100 years ago. Every year, on certain holidays, Wood and his family invite dozens of friends to holiday in their place.

    The house is indeed very large, therefore requiring a lot of people to be able to clean it. Understand it, Wood and his family did not live there every day. They only use it for vacation Manson. So when they come, the first thing to do is, work hard to make it shiny again.



    But the volunteers, friends Wood, of course volunteered to help clean it up. They think it's interesting activity holidays filler. Wood and family and friends only came there when the summer. Usually they spend their week-long holiday period. While in winter, large Manson was silent and deserted. Boat them stay safe in the store on a floating dock near James Town Boatyard.

    The Best Time for Our Brains

    Many people believe only energy or weight loss that can fluctuate during the day. Whereas the human brain also has its own rhythm and there are times when its best. Whenever a brilliant time to perform a particular activity?



    As quoted from Health.MSN, Monday (04/10/2010) there are 8 specific time in which someone can be brilliant in performing its duties, that is:

    Hours 7-9 am: The best time to enhance the spirit and passion
    "Time is the perfect time to increase ties with a new pair when you wake up," said Elijah Karatsoreos, PhD, a neurologist from Rockefeller University.
    This is because levels of the hormone oxytocin (the hormone of love) are at the highest level after waking. This time is the time to strengthen relationships with people who are most important in life. British researchers said that the level of oxytocin in males will gradually decline over time.

    9am to 11 noon: The best time for creativity
    At that time the brain has the hormone cortisol (stress hormone) is sufficient, so it can help focus the mind and this is not influenced by age.
    While this is an excellent time to learn and work on tasks that require analysis and concentration. Because it's time to develop new ideas, make presentations or brainstorming.

    Hours 11 to 2 pm: The best time to perform a difficult task
    German investigators said that when the hormone melatonin (sleep hormone) has declined sharply, so that the body is more ready to work on a project or work load is tough and hard.
    But you should still do not perform several tasks simultaneously, because it will make someone kehilngan concentration. Because it's time to make presentations or perform other heavy tasks.

    Hours 2-3 pm: The best time to rest
    To digest the lunch, then the body will draw blood from the brain to the abdomen, this condition will make the intake of blood or oxygen to the brain that make someone a little less so sleepy. For that try to take a break from work.
    If you still have to work and fight sleep, try to walk for a while, meditating or drinking water. This could increase vascular volume and circulation so that increases blood flow to the brain.

    Hours 3 pm to 6 pm: The best time for collaboration
    "At the present time the brain will feel very tired," said Paul Nussbaum, PhD, a clinical neuropsychologist. Because it does not hurt to do a collaboration with co-workers or doing different activities. Although the brain is not as sharp as the previous time, but someone will feel more relaxed and the pressure of his body were also lower.

    Hours 6 pm to 8 pm: The best time to perform personal tasks
    Among these hours, researchers found that the brain has entered in phase 'maintenance', ie when melatonin production is still at low levels.
    Nothing wrong to walk alone or with friends, making dinner or enjoy quality time with family members.

    Hours 8-10 nights: The best time to relax
    At this time there is a transition from a sleepy awake conditions, because melatonin hormone levels will rise rapidly. While the levels of serotonin (a neurotransmitter associated with the spirit) will fade.
    Rubin Naiman, PhD specialist sleep problems from the University of Arizona's Center for Integrative Medicine, said about 80 percent of serotonin will be stimulated from exposure to sunlight, so if the sun sinks in the body's levels are also reduced.
    "At night when the brain is tired, is the best way to make the body become relaxed like watching funny movies, knitting or doing things that can make the body relaxed, or relaxed," says Naiman.

    10 pm to the top: The best time to sleep and menuda all activities
    Today is the time for a break tonight and sleep, light settings can help to let the brain rest. After several hours, the brain will be ready again to start a new activity.
    Try to get enough sleep as much as 7-8 hours, so that it can obtain optimal health and energy in the morning.

    Jogging can make you smarter!



    Japan - Jogging or running favored by many people because it is easy to do and cheap. In addition to creating a healthy body, diligently doing jogging can also make people more intelligent.
    Some modern studies have been categorized as a sport suitable jogging done for all age groups, because it does not require equipment and special requirements to do so.
    Not only that, the study also found that jogging is done regularly and consistently can also be a brain exercise that can improve their intellectual abilities.
    "Jogging is not only beneficial for the muscles but also your brain,"explained Dr Kisou Kubota, study leader of Nihon Fukushi University in Handa, Japan, as reported by Preventdisease, Thursday (30/12/2010).
    According to Dr Kubota, the results showed that people who regularly do the jogging can experience improved memory, mental ability and cognitive function significantly. This exercise can also help memerangui depression.
    In this study, Dr. Kubota team studied seven healthy young people with the start jogging for 30 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week for at least 12 weeks.
    Each participant also underwent a series of complex computer-based test, to compare the ability of memory before and after the program carried out jogging.
    The result, after 12 weeks of jogging, test scores are significantly increased. This shows that jogging not only provide health benefits to the body, but also on the brain.
    Reasons how this sport can strengthen mental sharpness is unclear, but previous studies show that jogging can maintain healthy blood flow and oxygen that can protect the brain.
    "Someday these results can help doctors and find a way that jogging exercise may help Alzheimer's patients to improve cognitive function,"concludes Dr. Kubota.

    Passive Smokers, Hypertension Vulnerable



    A study showed, children affected by cigarette smoke are more likely to suffer from high blood pressure.


    "Children are classified as passive smokers, particularly men, are more susceptible to high blood pressure compared with girls," said researchers in a study reported by the Daily Mail.
    In the first study, researchers found that boys who breathe secondhand smoke at home may experience high blood pressure increased significantly. However, in girls, passive smoking seems to be associated with decreased blood pressure.
    Research involving more than 6,400 children shows that, boys aged 8-17 years who are exposed to tobacco smoke have blood pressure that is significantly higher than those who do not inhale cigarette smoke.
    Smoke exposure was associated with systolic blood pressure, which is associated with a spike in blood each time the heart contracts.
    U.S. researcher Dr. Jill Baumgartner, of the University of Minnesota, said the finding supports some previous research that suggests that something about the female sex can offer protection from harmful vascular changes due to exposure to secondhand smoke.
    While the blood pressure of children who live with smokers increased by 1.6 millimeters of mercury in boys, but decreased to 1.8 millimeters in girls.
    "While the increase in blood pressure observed among boys in our study may not be clinically meaningful for an individual child, they have major implications for the population," said Dr Baumgartner.
    Dr. Baumgartner added, the relationship between exposure to second hand smoke and blood pressure were observed in our study provides further incentive for the government to support the smoking ban and other laws that protect children from secondhand smoke.
    In the meantime, the findings presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies annual meeting in Denver, Colorado, U.S. states, researchers analyzed data from four health surveys conducted between 1999 and 2006 by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Frogs Who Has Long Vanished

    A number of amphibian species status of the mysterious. They have not declared extinct, but also did not reveal its existence for decades. Some biologists carry out scientific expeditions to search for amphibian species are "lost" it, for example in the Congo. 

    Having traveled for two years since 2009, scientists discovered five types of frogs which are all unique. The existence of the frogs that actually have been described since 1950, but they seemed to hide themselves from humans. 

    http://stat.k.kidsklik.com/data/photo/2011/05/23/1444008620X310.jpg
    Hyperolius leucotaenius 
    One type of frog found in the Hyperolius leucotaenius. This frog has a transparent skin so that internal organs and even eggs could be seen. This frog species found in Elila River, southeastern Congo. 

    Hyperolius leucotaenius has a green head and body-colored transparent plastic tub. This frog also has a pattern of yellow lines and tip-toe orange. Not yet clear reason why this frog has a transparent body. 

    In addition, there are three species found in highland areas Itombwe, southeastern Congo. Two of them are Chrysobatrachus cupreonitens who have a body color of green and brown and Phrynobatrachus asper which have thick fleshy foot. 


    Chrysobatrachus cupreonitens 


    Phrynobatrachus asper 
    Asper Phrynobatrachus species discovery is unique. This species was rediscovered in 2009 when a villager in the highlands of Itombwe offer dinner made from the frog to the scientists. 


    Arthroleptis pyrrhoscelis 
    One species from the highlands again Itombwe is fingered frog nail or Arthroleptis pyrrhoscelis. The development of the frog is unique because not pass tadpole phase. While the latter is Hyperolius chrysogaster species, found in the Kahuzi-Biega National Park, eastern Congo. 


    Hyperolius chrysogaster 
    Expedition rediscovery of the lost amphibians is led by El Greenbaum, biologist at the University of Texas at El Paso. The expedition was funded partially by the research committee and exploration, National Geographic Society. 

    "The discovery of my team to prove that the forests were (in Congo) is still unexplored. There are a lot of biodiversity in there and not too late to redouble our efforts in conservation," said Greenbaum.
