Handy Tip for you...How to Prevent Mosquitoes Lay Eggs?

This post is to help those people who reside in tropical countries. I want to introduce you, “How to prevent mosquitoes lay eggs and what is the cheapest way of preventing survival of mosquitoes“. We cannot stop mosquitoes lay eggs at any stagnant water in drains/ponds or water collected in waste pails, tanks, tins, used tyres etc. etc. Of course if you have fish inside the tanks/containers then there should be no problem.

Mosquitoes AEDES

Do you know that there is a very simple and very economical way to destroy the mosquitoes’ eggs and not let them hatch into larvae. Very very simple, just put in few 1 cent copper coins into the tanks/containers then it will solve all your problems. Because in accordance to Japanese Research Scientists, they found the mosquitoes eggs will be destroyed by a kind of mineral discharge from the copper. DON’T BELIEVE IT. Try it by yourself and even the small snails also will not visit the containers (with copper coins) collected with stagnant water. Your will observe the water collected in the containers will be very clean and clear.

700kg Great White Shark captured in South Africa, November 06, 2011.

A Great White shark weighing 700Kg was caught in south Africa, Fishermen are asking whether this is a big great white shark that had stolen their catches, and scary men surfers. Frightening, is to dissect a shark scientist says that teenage girls and immature, The Daily Telegraph reports.
However, it has developed weighs around 700kg when caught in nets. Conservation authorities tried to save the creature was confused by crane into the ocean to swim back, then the shark became tangled again and died.
South Africa’s Witness newspaper quotes a local fisherman who believe it may already be in violation of the same shark near the surf ski and stole barracuda he went reeling However, scientists say it is not possible “shark rarely lived in the same area for a long time” he said
They also said it was not the biggest shark ever caught in the area

The Worlds Fastest Car? Which is the REAL one? (Automotive, road, user, driver, speed, power, Auckland)

What is the Worlds Fastest car? Determining which is the fastest car in the world will depend on how you define fast.

We will talk about the fastest accelerating car in the world, the fastest cars top speed, the car that had the fastest time at Nürburgring, the worlds fastest street car, legal street car that is. In other words the Bugatti Veyron, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT, the Pagani Zonda R and the Maxximus G-Force Find out more about the worlds fastest cars and how they got the reputation for being the fastest.

The Bugatti Veyron

The fastest accelerating car in the world is the Bugatti Veyron.
The Bugatti Veyron, manufactured by Bugatti Automobiles was a pet project of Ferdinand Piech. Peich was a former CEO of VW. Built to be the fastest production car in the world, the Veyron has an 8.0 L W16 engine. This powerhouse produces 1020 HP, 992 ft-lbf. torque. In 2.6 seconds this car can reach 60 mph. In 9.9 seconds the Bugatti Veyron can hit 100 mph and return to 0.

 

The Veyron weights as much as some trucks, weighting in at four thousand five hundred pounds. How many of the fastest accelerating car in the world were sold? 200 of the Veyron were sold with a price tag of 1.1 million dollars each during it’s production period.

One famous owner we all are familiar with is Simon Cowell of American Idol fame. Even if you don’t always agree with Simons Idol choices, you have to love his choice of cars.

The SSC Ultimate Aero TT

The record for the fastest cars top speed in the world is the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. So if it is speed you are looking for this would be considered the worlds fastest car. The Ultimate Aero TT was built by Shelby Super cars. It wasn’t designed by Carrol Shelby as we would expect. It was designed by Jerod Shelby who was a medical equipment designer. In 2001 Jerod began to design cars and came up with a Super car of his very own.

Under the hood of the Ultimate Aero TT twin turbo 7.01 V 8 engines produce 1183 HP along with 1112 ft-lbf torque. This car, unlike the Veyron, weights a slight 2750 pounds. To put this in understandable terms, the Ultimate Aero TT weights the same as a Ford Focus. Makes you wonder where all that power comes from, doesn’t it?

The Ultimate Aero TT actually reached 256 MPH and taking the title of the worlds taking the title of the worlds fastest production vehicle from the Veyron. It is believed that the TT could reach over 270 mph but was never put on a track that was long enough to test that theory. There were not many of these super cars built, only 25 TT’s and with a cost of 645,000.00 I can understand why there wasn’t a demand for more.

The Pagani Zonda R

The fastest production car with the fastest time at Nürburgring was the Pagani Zonda R. Some automotive manufacturers use Nürburgring time as a standard to rate their production cars lap times. One of the most difficult tracks in the history of motor sports it is a great track to test a vehicles suspension tuning.

The Pagani Zonda R is the production car that owns the track record at Nürburgring. The Pagini’s time is 6:47 with an AMG V 12 that creates 739 HP with 523 ft-pounds torque. Another light weight, the Pangini R weights in at 2358 pounds, not much less than the Ultimate Aero TT.

The Pagini R design makes use of a F 1 vehicles technology with it’s use of Telemetry recordings. These recordings allow car drivers and crew to study the driving techniques used on the track. IF you didn’t order your R right away, chances are you didn’t get one. Only 15 will be made and each will be over the one million dollar mark.

The Maxximus G-Force

The Worlds fastest street car, correction, I mean the fastest legal street car is the Maxximus G-Force. Sounds fast, doesn’t it? How did a Ultima GTR become the worlds fastest street car? Well, a little reengineering that allows it to hold a Chevy twin turbo seven liter block.

This twin turbo seven can produce 1500 ft lbf torque along with 1600 HP. And it does it with a three speed automatic transmission. In 2.0 seconds flat it can go from 0 mph to 60. Give it 4.5 seconds and it is going 100. The Maxximus G-Force may be the worlds fastest street car, but it will never be mass produced.

These Supercars Are The Worlds Fastest Cars

The Supercars are often describe as a ultrahigh end exotic vehicle that is superior to most other cars made. The cars we have shown you in our article are definately more expensive, faster or more powerful than most cars in the world today. We find these Supercars so appealing. They are sexy and they are hot. It’s fun to see them and to read about them.

The Bugatti Veyron, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT, the Pagani Zonda R and the The Maxximus G-Force all have something in common. A couple things actually. They are very expensive, they are very sleek and each of them qualifies as the worlds fastest car in one category or another.

Top Five (5) Last Known Speakers Of A Language (social, studies, people, culture, civilization, extinction, Auckland), David, Lim

5. Tevfik Esenç

1904 – 1992

Last known speaker of: the Ubykh language

The Ubykh language is a North Caucasian language originally spoken along the shores of the Black Sea until its speakers were forced out by the Russians. They eventually settled in Turkey, and it was there that language died. Tevkik Esenc was an intelligent man who spoke several languages and he worked with linguistics to record the language as he was well aware of his status as the last speaker. Some of these recordings are available on Youtube.

Fun Language Fact – Ubykh was in the Guinness Book of Records for being the language with the most number of consonants.

4. Alf Palmer

circa 1891 – 1981

Last known speaker of: Warrunga

Little is known about Alf Palmer or Jinbilnggay as he was known in his native language. He was born and died in Townsville, Queensland, Australia and, like many on this list, was keen to play his role in trying to preserve the language. He worked with linguists from Japan and Australia and proved inspirational in alerting linguists to language loss. He is pictured on the left above.

Fun Fact – These very linguists returned to Townsville a few years ago and are working with Alf Palmer’s descendants in attempts to revive the language.

3. Fidelia Fielding

1827 – 1908

Last known speaker of: the Mohegan Pequot Language

Fidelia Fielding or as she called herself Dji’ts Bud dnaca (Flying Bird) is remembered as being something of a loner who kept to herself. However she should not be dismissed and she is an important and respected figure in the history of the Mohegan people. She was one of the last people to live the traditional Mohegan lifestyle and she mentored Mohegan anthropologist Gladys Tantaquidgeon. After her death, four of her diaries were found. These are now housed in the Museum of the American Indian in New York City and have been studied in efforts to revive the language.

Fun Fact – On May 24, 1936, an estimated 1,000 people gathered at the Ancient Burial Grounds of the Mohegans, Fort Shantok State Park in Montville, to pay tribute to “Flying Bird”.

2. Tuone Udaina

died 1898

Last known speaker of: Dalmatian

Tuane Udaina was not actually a native speaker of Dalmatian. He picked it up from secretly listening to his parents’ private conversations. Despite this, and the fact that he was deaf and had not spoken the language for 20 years, he was approached by linguist Matteo Bartoli in 1897 to try to record the language. Previous documentation of the language dated from the 13th – 16th century. Sadly, Bartoli’s original work (in Italian) was lost, existing only in a German translation, until 2001 when it was re-translated into Italian. Udaina himself also met an unfortunate end, being blown up by a landmine on 10th June 1898.

Fun Language Fact – Dalmatian, a Romance language with some similarities to Romanian, was spoken in the Dalmatia region of Croatia, with each town having its own different dialect of the language.

1. Big Bill Neidjie

circa 1920 – 2002

Last known speaker of: the Gagudju language

Big Bill Neidjie was always something of a local legend. He was born on the East Alligator River in Northern Territory, Australia. He had a traditional upbringing and was taught to hunt by his father and grandfather. He was known throughout for his physical strength and physique as well as for his commitment to conservation issues and the rights of indigenous Australians. His fame grew when he was featured in National Geographic Magazine in 1988 and he was awarded the Order of Australia in 1989.

Fun Language Fact – Like a number of indigenous Australian languages, in Gagudju it was taboo to discuss traditional secrets, passed from generation to generation, with outsiders. When Bill became aware of his fate, he faced the dilemma of breaking taboo or letting his culture die completely. He chose to break taboo and pass the secrets on to a select number of people.

Ten most horrible places on Earth

1. The Mutter Museum of Medical History. The museum was founded to educate future doctors about anatomy and human anomalies. It is a museum of pathologies, ancient medical tools and biological exhibits. The museum is known for its extensive collection of skulls. It also has various unique exhibits, for example, the dead body of a woman which turned into soap in the ground where she was buried. One can also see there the Siamese twins sharing only one liver, the skeleton of a two-headed child and other hideous exhibits.

2. Truk Lagoon, Micronesia. A big part of the Japanese navy now rests on the floor of Truk Lagoon in Micronesia, south-east off the Hawaiian Archipelago. The bottom of the lagoon, which Jacques Yves Cousteau explored in 1971, is all covered with fragments of warships that sank in 1944. The lagoon has become a great attraction for divers, although many fear the crews that never left their action posts. Destroyers and aircraft grew into coral reefs, but many divers never return from their underwater journeys exploring the reefs.

3. The witchcraft market in Sonora, Mexico. Witches in Sonora sit in tiny booths and promise to relieve clients of poverty and infidelity for only $10. The market is open every day for pilgrims from Mexico and foreign tourists, who come to Sonora to find out at least something about their future. Anyone can buy there mysterious potions, snake blood and dried humming birds to tame their luck.

4. Easter Island, Chile. This island is one of the most mysterious places in the world. The island is world-known for its giant statues carved of stone. The giant statues look into the sky as if they are begging for mercy. Only stone statues know where their creators went. No one on the island knows the art of statue-making. No one knows how it could be possible to make those 20-meter high and 90-ton heavy giants. The statues used to be transported 20 kilometers far from the quarry, where ancient sculptors worked.

5. Manchac Swamp, Louisiana. The place is also known as the ghost swamp. The swamp is located near New Orleans. Legend has it that the swamp was cursed by a voodoo queen when she was captivated in the beginning of the 1920s. Three little villages disappeared there in a hurricane in 1915.

6. The Catacombs of Paris. The walls of the long corridor are “tiled” with skulls and bones. The air is very dry, carrying only a slight hint of decay. When you get into the catacombs underneath Paris you begin to realize why Viktor Hugo and Anne Rice wrote their famous novels about these dungeons. They stretch for about 187 kilometers underneath the whole city, and only a small part of them is open for access. They say that the legendary underground police patrol the catacombs, although legions of zombies and vampires seem to be more appropriate at this point.

7. The Winchester House in San Jose, California. The mystery house is a colossal construction, a home to many myths and prejudices. A fortune-teller once told Sarah Winchesater, an heiress to an armory company, that ghosts would haunt nut her throughout her life, so she needed to leave Connecticut and travel to the west, where she would need to build a huge house, the construction of which would have to continue as long as she was alive. The construction began in San Jose in 1884 and did not stop for 38 until Sarah died. The house is currently inhabited by the ghosts of her insanity: stairways into the ceiling, doors in the middle of walls, chandeliers and hooks. Even those who never believe in ghosts say that they heard or saw something strange during their visit to the house.

8. Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh. These are several streets with gloomy and hideous past, hidden in the medieval Old Town in Edinburgh. This place, where victims of plague would be left to die in the 17th century, is known for its poltergeists. The tourists visiting the weird location say that something invisible touches their arms and legs. Locals say that it is a ghost of a girl named Annie, whom her parents left there in 1645. A new large building was built in Mary King’s Close a hundred years later. The close was open for tourists in 2003.

9. Abbey of Thelema, Sicily. Aleister Crowley is probably one of the most infamous occultists in the world. This house, abundant with dark pagan frescos, used to be the world capital of Satan orgies. Crowley is known for his fans, like Marilyn Manson. He also appeared on the cover of the Beatles album Sgt. Pepper`s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Crowley founded the Abbey of Thelema, which became the community of free love. Filmmaker Kenneth Anger, a devotee of Crowley, made a film about the Abbey, but the film mysteriously disappeared later. The abbey has been practically ruined now.

10. Chernobyl, Ukraine. Tourists can visit the abandoned town of Pripyat and see its restriction zone. Thousands of people left their homes and abandoned their possessions when the Chernobyl disaster struck. Toys can be seen scattered in kindergartens, newspapers are resting on dinner tables. The Chernobyl disaster area is now open for tourist visits – the radiation level there is safe. As a rule, a bus trips begins in Kiev. Afterwards, tourists walk to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, see the Sarcophagus and then go to the town of Pripyat.|

Most mysterious phenomena of world ocean

Most mysterious phenomena of world ocean. 44926.jpegThe ocean is full of mysteries. Humans traditionally fear the ocean and prefer to admire it from ashore. There are places in the world ocean, which people fear especially. Planes and ships disappear in those places without a trace. There are also giant whirlpools, giant waves and mysterious luminous circles in the water...There is a place in the ocean, where all of those phenomena exist at once. It is the Bermuda Triangle.

The square of the Bermuda Triangle makes up approximately a million of square kilometers. The triangle spreads from Florida to the Bermuda islands, then to Puerto Rico and back to Florida via the Bahamas. The news about mysterious disappearances of ships and planes in the area appeared at the end of the 1940s. A group of five Avenger bomber planes did not return to the base on December 5, 1945. The pilots only had time to say that they were entering the "white water." A hydroplane was sent to rescue the people, but the aircraft disappeared as well. Nearly 50 vessels and aircraft disappeared in the triangle in 50 years. However, the triangle "lost its appetite" in the middle of the 1980s.

So many theories - pseudoscientific, paranormal and ufological - have been analyzed in an attempt to explain the mysterious phenomenon. The most reliable theory was set forth by Joseph Monaghan of Australia's Monash University. In 2003, the scientist published an article in American Journal of Physics titled "Could Methane Bubbles Sink Ships?" The researcher described the experiments, which he conducted to prove that it could be possible. His theory was supported by many other scientists.

According to Monaghan, huge bubbles can erupt from undersea deposits of solid methane, known as gas hydrates. An odorless gas found in swamps and mines, methane becomes solid under the enormous pressures found on deep sea floors. The icelike methane deposits can break off and become gaseous as they rise, creating bubbles at the surface, the AP wrote. The gas, when concentrated on the surface, can trigger malfunctions in the work of electronic equipment on board aircraft and ships. Ships can sink in such places because of the sudden reduction of the water density.

Another Bermuda phenomenon is the so-called Flying Dutchman - the inexplicable disappearance of ship crews. Most likely, the reason for such incidents is the infrasound. Some scientists believe that the infrasound is created by gas bubbles as they rise to the surface. The infrasonic vibrations trigger dangerous resonance of the heart and the blood vessels. When having such resonance, a human being may have a panic attack. It can be possible that sailors, gripped with fear and panic, jump overboard in an attempt to get rid from the bizarre feeling.

However, there is no theory in the world to explain why the Bermuda Triangle stopped devouring ships and planes in the middle of the 1980s. Lawrence David Kusche, the author of "The Bermuda Triangle Mystery: Solved," said that there was no mystery at all. According to Kusche, the mystery does not exist - it was made simply made up by people.

Kusche approached the problem seriously. He studied the files of insurance companies, coast guards reports, investigation reports, etc. Nevertheless, the sad title of the Bermuda Triangle as the most mysterious place of the world ocean is justified by several peculiarities. This is one of the two zones on Earth (the second one is known as the Devil's Sea), where the magnetic compass points to the actual, rather than the magnetic south. The compass always points to the southern magnetic pole, whereas the opposite side - the north - automatically points to the north.

What is more, spaceships registered considerable deviations of earth gravity in the area. The gravity in the Bermuda Triangle is stronger than anywhere else in the world, which causes the formation of the Gulf Stream and its movement to the north of Europe.

As for the reduction of the number of mysterious catastrophes, many explain this phenomenon with the appearance of space navigation. In addition, the equipment of planes and vessels has become much more technologically advanced during the years.

The Sargasso Sea

Many people mix up the Sargasso Sea with the Bermuda Triangle. The sea is situated to the south-east off the triangle. Moreover, many people are trying to find a solution to the mysteries of the triangle in the Sargasso Sea. However, the sea is located in the center of the Atlantic Ocean. There is a certain peculiarity for which the sea was named so. Oceanic currents there move clockwise. A lot of gulfweed, or sargasso, gets accumulated in the water area, which the currents outline.

The sea is a giant whirlpool that has its own laws of life. The water temperature inside the whirlpool is much higher than on the outside of it. The water is still there nearly always. One can also see miraculous mirages there, when it seems, for example, that the sun rises in the east and in the west at the same time.

Richard Sylvester of the University of Western Australia suggested that the giant whirlpool of the Sargasso Sea is a centrifuge, which creates smaller whirlpools that reach the area of the Bermuda Triangle. The whirlpools cause mini-cyclones in the air. The cyclones continue the spiral movement of water, from which they appear, and may thus make small aircraft crash into the ocean.

The Devil's Sea

This is a region of the Pacific around Miyake Island, about 100 km south of Tokyo. This "relative" of the Bermuda Triangle can not be found on any map, but sailors prefer to keep away from the region. Storms may start there out of the blue and disappear just as they started. Whales, dolphins and even birds do not inhabit this area. Nine ships disappeared in the region in five years in the beginning of the 1950s. The most famous of such incidents is the disappearance of Kaiyo Maru No.5, a Japanese research vessel.

This is a very seismically active region. The seabed is moving constantly; volcanic islands appear and disappear on a regular basis. The region is also known for its highly active cyclonic activity.

The Cape of Good Hope

This area off the coast of South Africa is also known as the Cape of Storms. A great deal of vessels have wrecked there in hundreds of years. Most of the wrecks took place because of bad weather, particularly killer waves, aka cape rollers. Scientists also call them solitary waves. They are very large waves, up to 30 meters high. They are formed as two coherent waves become one. The height of one cape roller is equal to the heights of those two waves. They do not change their shape during the distribution process even when they encounter other similar waves on the way. They can last for very large distances without losing their power. Such huge waves create very large cavities in front of them, the depth of which corresponds to the height of the waves.

There are many other places in the world ocean, where such waves can occur, but the area near the Cape of Good Hope is especially dangerous at this point.

The eastern part of the Indian ocean and the Persian Gulf

This area is known for a very impressive and mysterious phenomenon - giant luminous and whirling circles on the water surface. German oceanologist Kurt Kahle believed that the luminous circles in the ocean appear as a result of underwater earthquakes, which result in the luminescence of plankton. As long as this impact occurs selectively, the spinning wheel illusion is created. This hypothesis has received criticism lately, because it is incapable of explaining the logic in the transformation of the luminous circles. Modern science has not been able to explain the accurate round shape of the objects. Scientists can not explain the rays that come out from one center, nor can they say anything reasonable to explain the velocity of circulation. The version of the UFO seems to be the primary one in this case.

Maelstrom whirlpool

This whirlpool is not of planetary significance as the whirlpool in the Sargasso Sea. Nevertheless, sailors know dozens of blood-chilling stories about the amazing phenomenon. This whirlpool occurs twice a day, in the western part of the Sea of Norway, off the north-western coast of Norway. The word 'maelstrom' was popularized by Edgar Poe in his story "A Descent into the Maelstrom." A maelstrom is a very strong and large swirling body of water which has considerable downdraft. The water surface of the cavity in the center of the powerful vortex is tens of meters lower than the water surface in the ocean. The power of the whirlpool is ten times as much as the power of a common current.

Strangely enough, the whirlpool changes its direction to the opposite once in every three or four months. Maelstrom whirlpools may occur in other regions of the globe, including the Bermuda Triangle. It is generally believed that the maelstroms normally whirl anticlockwise in the Northern hemisphere and clockwise - in the Southern hemisphere, which is explained with the rotation of planet Earth.
