This small beautiful Golden Organ colored Toad, named as Golden Toad after its Golden color, was first discovered by Jay Savage, a herpetologist in 1966. Inhabited in the tropical forests of Montverde, Costa Rica, the species were not in danger to become extinct till 1987 and were found in large number there. But due to weather changes, the pools which were their breeding sites were dried and there were only 29 Toads left behind. In 1989 the researchers found the single male of the species and up till now, even after extensive searches, the researches failed to search out even a single Golden Toad.

2. Pyrenean Ibex

Found in the Pyrenean Mountain range of Spain, France and Andorra, Pyrenean Ibex is the only extinct animal that was clone after its extinction but a few minutes after the reborn of the Pyrenean Ibex, the animal become extinct again as the cloned one died due to lung failure. This animal was extinct because of continuous persecution by human being. There were about 100 animals of the species found in the beginning of 20th century and in 1981, there were 30 individuals of the Pyrenean Ibex reported. The last member of this species named Celia was died on the 6th January 2000 at the age of 13 and the Pyrenean Ibex were announced as the extinct animal.

Acupuncture, Ancient Therapy But New Hope In Modern Era

Acupuncture, An Ancient Mystery or Best Therapy

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient form of therapy which is now used as a form of alternative medicine, originally Chinese practice evolved over thousand years ago in ancient China (about 2500 B.C). Acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points on the body using a variety of techniques. These techniques (to stimulate specific body points) can includes insertion of fine needles (that are manipulated by hands or electrical stimulator) trough skin or applying pressure over these specific parts, usually done to achieve cure from certain diseases, relieve pain or anaesthetize the patient (as in surgery).

Advertisements

The word Acupuncture us taken from Latin “Acus” meaning “Needles” and “Punctura” meaning “to puncture” (Wikipedia)

How Acupuncture done?

One or more small metal needles are inserted at precise points along 12 pathways or channels (known as meridians) in the body, Traditional Chinese medicine explains that stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi (vital life force) through channels known as meridians while Western practitioners believe that acupuncture stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue which boost the activity of body’s natural painkillers and increase blood flow.

 

How Acupuncture Works?

Current scientific research indicates that these traditional forms of therapy or acupuncture cause release of natural opiates, blockage of pain-signal transmission, thus more effective than placebos in the relief of certain types of pain. Although there is no histological or physiological correlates has been found for qi.

Is it Safe to Use Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is considered as safe when administered by well-trained practitioners with sterile needles and has been accepted and supported by USNIH (United States National Institutes of Health),NHS (National Health Service) of the United Kingdom, WHO (World Health Organization), and NCCAM (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) for certain conditions.

When Acupuncture is recommended?

Being a common form of therapy, Acupuncture is recommended for symptomatic relief from a variety of conditions and disease including but not limited to:

  1. Headaches
  2. Migraines
  3. Low back pain
  4. Fibromyalgia
  5. Labor pain
  6. Menstrual cramps
  7. Osteoarthritis
  8. Tennis elbow
  9. Dental pain
  10. Chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting

There is a report on use of acupuncture as anesthesia prior to surgical procedure in China. Anesthetic effect of acupuncture was achieved by blocking certain spinal nerves and thus reduce or no sensation.

Is there any risk or side effect of this procedure?

Although Acupuncture stimulate the natural body self-recovery mechanism, it has some side effects which is mainly the result of unsterilized needles which include

  • Infections (usually local)
  • Punctured Organs
  • Punctured blood vessels
  • Plural rapture
  • May result in bleeding especially if used by unqualified practitioner

Some form of acupuncture stimulate labor, may cause premature delivery if used in pregnant women.

Conclusion:

One of the oldest forms of therapy, Acupuncture is a reliable form of therapy which acts by activating the body natural mechanism to combat diseases or overcome pain. Acupuncture can be a hope for those who tried other form of therapy for their chronic pain and failed.

If you want to try and take benefits of this old traditional Chinese form of therapy, find a trained therapist in order to gain maximum benefit and prevent the potential side effects.

Top 10 interesting Facts about Viruses

Top 10 interesting Facts about Viruses

1.  Virus – A Nano technology

Nano Virus

Viruses are the example of nanotechnology by nature. Their size ranges between 20 nanometers (0.0002 mm) to 400 nanometers (0.0004 mm). The smaller known virus till to date is Circovirus (usually affect animal causing PCVD) and the biggest one is mimivirus (the causative agent of some form of Viral Pneumonia) which is even bigger than some smaller bacteria. There are even bigger virus discover called mamaviru.

2.  Viral Chain – Double than the Diameter of Milky Way

Virus and Milky wayThere are millions of viruses in a single drop of water, account for 1031 total viruses on the Earth. If calculated by the total number and the average size of virus (200 nanometers) all of them (lined up end to end) will stretch 108 Light years into space (2 times more than the diameter of Milky Way).

3.  Living or Dead

Virus, The Border Line between Living and non-livingViruses are neither living nor dead entity. They are among the border line of Live and dead. They don’t have their own food metabolism mechanism; they can’t produce energy by their own. But due to ability to replicate (reproduce) themselves Viruses, by some scientist, considered as living thing. Although they can’t reproduce outside the host cell

4.  Temperature Does matter for Virus

Effect of Temperature on Virus
On average, viruses live on 37 0C for seconds, for minutes on 20 0C, for hour on 10 0C for days on 0 0C and for years on temperature in minus. The hotter temperature of your body during viral infection helps immune system to get rid of viruses. On the other hand, in cold weather, you have more chances to get flu. There are still many ancient viruses living in sub freezing temperature of Antarctica.

5.  Wide Range Of Host

Host range of virus
Viruses are not only the worst enemy of human; they can infect every living organism under the Sun. The virus nature of more rapid genetic diversion enables them to parasitize all groups of Living organisms. Their range of hosts not only limited to men but include animal, plants, insects, Bacteria (infected by Bacteriophages), fungi, protozoa, amoebae their own relatives, yes there are viruses (viriophage) which infect other viruses.

6.  First written Proof of Viral Disease

Person with Poliomyelitis in Ancient drwaings
The first written evidence of a viral infection is dated back to ancient Egypt (3700 B.C), which shows a patient with typical clinical features of poliomyelitis. The first ever discovered virus is Tobacco Mosaic Virus (TMV) discovered by a Russian Microbiologist, Dmitry Ivanovsky in 1892. The first discovered virus causing disease in Human is Yellow Fever virus, discovered by Walter Reed in 1901. Structure of Virus was not been observed until the invention of Electron Microscope in 1931. Ernst Ruska and Max Knoll (both are Germen Engineers) were the first who observe Virus under Electron Microscope.

7.  DNA Vs. RNA Virus

Types Of Virus (RNA virus, DNA virus)
On the basis of genetic material (Ribonucleic acid), Viruses are classifying as either DNA (Double Strand Nucleic Acid) or RNA (Single Strand Nucleic Acid) viruses. Among these types, DNA viruses are stable and while replicating, they make good copies of their genetic material. This can be useful to make vaccines against them. On other hand, RNA viruses are less stable, their genetic material changes quickly due to which it’s hard to make vaccine against them or get vaccinated against the same viral infection repeatedly. (Can you guess HIV belongs to which class?)

8.  Antiviral Drugs – Pseudo Genetic Codes

Antiviral Drugs, Pseudo Genetic Code
Antiviral drugs (such as Acyclovir) are Pseudo (fake) genetic material which is perceived and adopted by viruses as their own replicated genetic martial (RNA or DNA) in cell, using which render the viruses harmless.

9.  Social History of Virus

Traces of Virus found in Ancient human Remains
Traces of Viruses found in ancient human skeleton are used by scientist as a tool or evidence to uncover pre-historic migration by human being. Scientists are tracing prehistoric migration by viruses they carry with themselves.

10.  Friendly Virus

Gene Therapy through Virus
Despite all the harmful effects of virus, there is a useful Medical use of Viruses. They are being used in gene therapy as gene delivery systems for the treatment of various inherited and acquired diseases.
Viruses are the enemy of our enemies (bacteria, Fungi, Protozoa), they helping us by killing them as well.

Proof of Ancient Aliens Visits and Interaction with Humans

Proof Of Ancient Aliens Visit to the EarthProof Of Ancient Aliens Visit to the Earth

Are we alone in the universe? Or, is there any extra terrestrials creatures in our neighbors? If yes, had they ever visited us? Did they made contact with us? Had they ever play role in development of our culture and modern technologies? These questions always wondered the human and for which they seeks answer.

Advertisements

Many scientist, archeologist and alien theorists say yes for the presence of alien and claim that earth was visited in past by intelligent extra terrestrials being who made contact with humans and helped shape human civilization, culture, religions and technologies.

Scientist found many clues scattered throughout the world, suggested that alien could have visited the earth long ago. Aliens like strange humanoid creatures and flying objects similar to UFO (quite same as today’s reported modern UFOs and aliens) are depicted in paintings, found in some religious text (which mentioned flying cars or flying chariots) and the presence of astronauts like stone sculptures from ancient culture. On the bases of these evidences, scientists claim the presence of ancient aliens or astronauts. Although there are many opponents to the theory, here are few evidence of ancient aliens existence, after looking at which, it’s up to you to believe or disbelieve the theory.
