PETROL-"THE LIQUID GOLD"

2010-01-29T21:53:10.599-08:00

You use petrol to fill up your bike’s tank and after your tank is empty you go back again to fill it up. All this is fine but have you ever wondered what petrol is? Probably not I guess, so that’s why I decided to write an article on this, after all you must know what you are using to fuel your bikes.
A Derivative: Petrol is extracted from crude oil and there are many derivatives which are extracted from crude oil. Diesel, Kerosene, LPG, CNG, White kerosene (aviation fuel), petrol, ethanol, methanol to name a few. Recently the crude oil rates touched an all time record of 148$ a barrel. The rates have come down ever since but the rates are likely to go up in future. The OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) estimates that there is enough crude oil in the world to last another 80 years.
Octane Rating: The normal unleaded petrol you use has an octane rating of 87 or higher. The other octane petrol available in India are 91, 93, 97 RON octane respectively.
Composition: Petrol is made up of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons along with toluene and benzene. In this, toluene is an explosive and it is used as TNT (trinitrotoluene) in explosives. That’s why petrol is highly inflammable and can explode when it comes in contact with fire. Benzene and Toluene are added to increase the octane rating.
The higher the octane rating the greater the resistance of petrol to explosion, which is why all high performance engines need high octane fuels. High performance engines have high compression ratios compared to normal engines because they produce more power and are high revving. The higher the compression ratio the more efficient the engine is. An example we have is the use of only speed 97-octane petrol for the R1, Hayabusa and racecars in India else their engines wont perform optimally due to loss of power.
So in a nutshell, petrol powers the world and without it life is impossible, use it carefully and judiciously and don’t waste it. Little wonder its called Liquid Gold.



PURE PETROL

2010-01-29T21:50:55.381-08:00

Octane Does Matter: Octane rating reflects the quality, purity, refinement, efficiency and heat bearing capacity of petrol. Hence we have different grades of Petrol for different uses ranging for your bikes to spacecrafts.You see crude oil is the raw material for petrol and from it, various derivatives are extracted. The finer and refined the derivative, the better the quality and efficiency of the fuel. So from crude oil there are various stages of refining extraction done that results in so many varieties of fuels with higher Octane ratings.The various Octane ratings of petrol are 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 93 and 97, which symbolize purity and refinement in increasing order. On one end we have 87 octane which you use for your bike as unleaded and on the other extreme we have 97 octane which fuels the super bikes sold in India as Speed 97. So High Octane fuels are expensive because of high levels of refinement.

MOST COMMON AIR POLLUTANTS

2010-01-29T21:47:11.960-08:00

Ozone
A gas that can be found in two places. Near the ground (the troposphere), it is a major part of smog. The harmful ozone in the lower atmosphere should not be confused with the protective layer of ozone in the upper atmosphere (stratosphere), which screens out harmful ultraviolet rays.
Source:
Ozone is not created directly, but is formed when nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds mix in sunlight. That is why ozone is mostly found in the summer. Nitrogen oxides come from burning gasoline, coal, or other fossil fuels. There are many types of volatile organic compounds, and they come from sources ranging from factories to trees.
Effects:
Ozone near the ground can cause a number of health problems. Ozone can lead to more frequent asthma attacks in people who have asthma and can cause sore throats, coughs, and breathing difficulty. It may even lead to premature death. Ozone can also hurt plants and crops.

Carbon monoxide
A gas that comes from the burning of fossil fuels, mostly in cars. It cannot be seen or smelled.
Source:
Carbon monoxide is released when engines burn fossil fuels. Emissions are higher when engines are not tuned properly, and when fuel is not completely burned. Cars emit a lot of the carbon monoxide found outdoors. Furnaces and heaters in the home can emit high concentrations of carbon monoxide, too, if they are not properly maintained.
Effects:
Carbon monoxide makes it hard for body parts to get the oxygen they need to run correctly. Exposure to carbon monoxide makes people feel dizzy and tired and gives them headaches. In high concentrations it is fatal. Elderly people with heart disease are hospitalized more often when they are exposed to higher amounts of carbon monoxide.
Lead
A blue-gray metal that is very toxic and is found in a number of forms and locations.
Source:
Outside, lead comes from cars in areas where unleaded gasoline is not used. Lead can also come from power plants and other industrial sources. Inside, lead paint is an important source of lead, especially in houses where paint is peeling. Lead in old pipes can also be a source of lead in drinking water.
Effects:
High amounts of lead can be dangerous for small children and can lead to lower IQs and kidney problems. For adults, exposure to lead can increase the chance of having heart attacks or strokes.

Toxic air pollutants
A large number of chemicals that are known or suspected to cause cancer. Some important pollutants in this category include arsenic, asbestos, benzene, and dioxin.
Source:
Each toxic air pollutant comes from a slightly different source, but many are created in chemical plants or are emitted when fossil fuels are burned. Some toxic air pollutants, like asbestos and formaldehyde, can be found in building materials and can lead to indoor air problems. Many toxic air pollutants can also enter the food and water supplies.
Effects:
Toxic air pollutants can cause cancer. Some toxic air pollutants can also cause birth defects. Other effects depend on the pollutant, but can include skin and eye irritation and breathing problems.



NEW SOURCE OF ENERGY-"ALTERNATIVE TO PETROL"

2010-01-29T21:39:45.400-08:00

An alternate source of energy is Hydrogen.It is NOT carbon based therefore no CO,CO2 or hydrocarbons.The by-product of combustion using hydrogen is H2O (pure water vapor).Hydrogen is one the most abundant elements on the planet.It bonds easily with Oxygen and other elements. That is why it works well in fuel cells to produce electricity. Fuel cells combine hydrogen and oxygen, during this process electrons are released. They are then collected and concentrated to produce electricity. The emissions are pure water vapor.The largest obstacle in cracking the hydrogen from other compounds is cost. The cost to produce pure hydrogen from water or other compounds like natural gas is high and conventional generating plants create carbon pollution in the process. Use of clean generating systems like solar, wind, hydraulic, nuclear and geo-thermal can be utilized to produce the 99.97% pure hydrogen needed for fuel cells without increasing carbon dioxide levels. Wind generated electricity used to power a test facility reformer (a reformer separates hydrogen from natural gas or other compounds) recently brought the cost down to about $5 a gallon equivalent. A light-weight on-board storage system that is crash safe to use in an automotive application is being developed. If we concentrated our efforts on hydrogen and forgot Ethanol we'll be better off. BTW, NASA flew a small (2 seater) airplane a few years ago using a Hydrogen fuel cell and electric motor powerplant.Ethanol is carbon based, produces less energy than gasoline and uses our food and water supplies.Ethanol carries about 54% of the energy of contained in 87 octane unleaded gasoline. Hydrogen carries about 120% based on a gallon equivalent of 87 octane unleaded gasoline.Oh yeah, we can reform hydrogen from methane that comes from human and animal waste and other forms of biologic waste. And in a hydrogen economy we would create many new jobs. Another American product and technology. That is if we don't allow the big corporations to sell us out.



GREEN PC-"Eco-friendly computer from EUROCOM"

2010-01-29T21:33:14.727-08:00

Eurocom has done it again with its innovative designs. This instance instead of a desktop equal notebook, which is their specialty, it is an Eco-friendly PC or the green desktop.
What ever you poverty to call it, this all-in-one product basically eliminates the mouse completely. Its touch screen technology enables users to navigate the screen and open and near documents and programs with the touch of a finger or with a stylus (included).
This is a new artefact of computing and it does take some instance to get a feel for it, but I have to stay it was a totally natural artefact of interfacing with the computer.
Now, you ease need a keyboard. The Eurocom unit does not become with a keyboard and I crapper see where the company is coming from. However, it was impracticable to operate the PC with out it.
For example, you ease needed to type in your password for the wireless Internet connection. Finding a digital keyboard on Windows XP was too hard and too instance consuming and it would not be a natural artefact of computing in my opinion.
The only another problem with the Eco-friendly PC is that you cannot shut off the screen while ease operating the computer. It forces you to shut down the grouping each instance you poverty to stop.
But that is it. With this unit, Eurocom claims it has the most energy efficient/recyclable product on the market. And, they just might. CDN has not done a product comparison on these products. To be fair, we haven't seen another vendors display a similar type product. So kudos goes to Eurocom for being innovative.
The Eco-friendly PC was prefabricated with a low carbon footprint in mind. It uses just 53 watts to operate and crapper go as high as 74 watts. To give you an idea of how low this is, the average desktop PC consumes between 300 to 400 watts of power when it is fully operational.
The product is prefabricated of 100 per cent recycled parts. It weights just under 10 Kg. and it crapper be quite portable. I moved the unit with ease to many areas of the office and at home. The diminutive form bourgeois (450mm width x 312mm length and 66.5mm height) gives users a lot of workspace room.
At a price tag of $1,299 for the 19-inch mode of the Eurocom Eco-friendly PC, this product comes at a reasonable price considering all the advantages users would get with reduced consumption rates.

History of SPHINX

2009-12-01T07:53:26.035-08:00

Sphinx is a creature with the body of a Lion and the head of a man/woman. It is believed to be a Greek word. Most of us might have heard of the Great Sphinx of Giza. Ones who are reading about Sphinxes for the first time read on I promise you it is pretty interesting. For those of you who have only heard about it, you would be surprised to know that the concept of Sphinx is not just in the Egyptian mythology it also exists in Asia. For those of you who know both the facts I have a surprise for you in the end.
The Sphinx is said to guard temples or tombs (depending on where it is placed). The Great Sphinx of Giza is the most famous of the Egyptian Sphinxes. It is believed to have been built by ancient Egyptians in third millennium B.C. But still things like on whose model is the face built, exactly when and who built it is still a mystery. Many people have different arguments. Many Egyptologists believe that it was during the period of Pharaoh Khafra that the statue was built. But then later there was an argument that the statue was buried in the sand and that it was Khafra who excavated it. So that meant the Sphinx was there even before the reign of Khafra; probably a lot earlier than that. So who exactly built the Sphinx? A few people believed it was Pharaoh Khufu who built it. The first documented attempt at an excavation dates to 1400 BC, when the young Thutmose IV gathered a team and, after much effort, managed to dig out the front paws, between which he placed a granite slab, known as the Dream Stela. This contains the story as to why Thutmose started the excavation. He was resting in the noon near the Sphinx when in a dream he was promised the kingdom if he excavated the Sphinx. Ramses II also did an excavation later. The entire Sphinx was finally excavated only on 26 Dec 1925. Surprised? Continue reading. Sphinx was considered as the talisman of the Nile. The locals believed that the flood cycle depend on it. The Nile listened to the Sphinx according to them.
The original idea of a Sphinx is said to be Greek. According to Greek mythology the Sphinx is a lady with the head of a women and the body of a lion who stood guard to the city of Thebes. Anybody who crossed her had to answer her riddle. If they failed to answer it, she would eat them up. ( That was one intelligent Sphinx and a hungry one too!)

The concept of Sphinx exists in the South and South East Asia as well. Purushamriga depicted on the Shri Varadaraja Perumal temple in Tribhuvana is the Indian Sphinx. It is said to guard the temple. According to legend, it is said to take away the sins of the devotees when they enter the temple and to ward off evil in general. It is therefore often found in a strategic position on the gopuram or temple gateway. Male purushamriga guarding the entrance of the Shri Shiva Nataraja temple in Chidambaram is another example. Sphinx earns a place in the Buddhists beliefs a well. In Burma, the sphinx is depicted on the corners of Buddhist stupas, and legends tells how it was created by Buddhist monks to protect a new-born royal baby from being devoured by ogresses. There are sphinxes in many palaces as well. Sphinxes are also found in medieval churches.

Now comes the best part. Did you know that the sphinx has been associated with the U.S. Army Military Intelligence since 1923, when it was adopted as the insignia of the Military Intelligence Officers Reserve Corps. Since Sphinx depicts great wisdom and strength they chose it. Now how many of you all knew that? Interesting isn’t it? Now if you are telling me that you know that also then you are one big Sphinx fan.

PANDA-"Getting Endangered"

2009-11-14T22:09:55.282-08:00

Imagine waking up in a bamboo forest of China. The mist of the clouds, hanging on the branches, and a Giant Panda looking back at you from a nearby tree!
These adorable Giant Pandas, however, are the rarest member of the bear family and among the world’s most threatened animals. Today, the Giant Panda’s future remains uncertain. There are only about 1000 of them left in the wild. Pandas do not have many offspring during their lifetime. They give birth to a single or two cubs at a time. Although the adults have few predators besides man, the cubs are very small and may be attacked by leopards. Another problem is their diet! Bamboo grows in large patches, and different types of bamboo flower in different years. Pandas must travel from one good patch to another to find food. Its forest habitat, in the mountainous areas of southwest China, is increasingly fragmented by human encroachment. Habitat loss continues to occur outside the protected areas, while poaching continues to remain a threat. The sustainability of these animals is very difficult due to the fact that Pandas have no desire to mate once in captivity.
The Giant Panda also forms the logo of the WWF. WWF has played a vital role in the conservation of these species by increasing their area of habitat, creating bamboo patches, patrolling against poaching and illegal encroachment, etc. Options are also available to ‘Adopt a Panda’ and help save them from extinction. Thus, a combination of science, innovation, and community support helps to find ways to save animals and their habitats all over the world. Together, we can make a difference!

The extinction of at least 500 species of animals has been caused by man, most of them in this century. Today there are about 5,000 endangered animals and at least one species dies out every year. The number is rapidly growing, some species becoming endangered without most of us even knowing it. One such species is the Giant Panda.



OIL SPILLING -"Affecting Ecosystem"

2009-11-14T22:08:44.469-08:00

Crude oil and refined fuel spills from tanker ship accidents have damaged natural ecosystems in Alaska, the Galapagos Islands, France and many other places and times in Spain .

The quantity of oil spilled during accidents has ranged from a few hundred tons to several hundred thousand tons. Smaller spills have already proven to have a great impact on ecosystems, such as the Exxon Valdez oil spill

Oil spills at sea are generally much more damaging than those on land, since they can spread for hundreds of nautical miles in a thin oil slick which can cover beaches with a thin coating of oil. This can kill sea birds, mammals, shellfish and other organisms it coats. Oil spills on land are more readily containable if a makeshift earth dam can be rapidly bulldozed around the spill site before most of the oil escapes, and land animals can avoid the oil more easily.

Control of oil spills is difficult, requires ad hoc methods, and often a large amount of manpower . The dropping of bombs and incendiary devices from aircraft on the Torrey Canyon wreck got poor results, modern techniques would include pumping the oil from the wreck, like in the Prestige oil spill or the Erika oil spill.

LAMASA-"A Kitchen Craft"

2009-11-14T21:19:29.294-08:00

Lamasa is a Spanish kitchen craft. It makes use of dough that can be moulded into different shapes. It can be used to make magnet holders, decorative pieces such as fruits, flower baskets, dolls, teddy bears, etc. This work can also be done on photo-frames, mirrors, jharokas, key-chains.
Ingredients used are Lamasa dough, moulds to give shape, craft scissors, ready-made pollens, magnets, m-seal, fevicol.
To make the dough, Mix 1 cup corn-flour, 3/4th cup fevicol, 1 teaspoon Zinc Oxide, 1 teaspoon Lime Juice and 1 teaspoon Glycerine in an aluminum vessel and heat it stirring continuously so that no lumps are formed. After about 5-7 minutes after the dough has turned smooth with no watery contents, remove from fire and place it on a plate greased with some oil-based cold cream. Make balls by greasing your hands with cold cream. Keep these balls separately in airtight containers. According to the requirement, add oil paint/food colors of your choice in a small quantity of dough.
Now that the dough is ready, you can use it for making shapes of your choice. Once the Lamasa artwork is completed and dried, add one or two coats of varnish which will give it sheen and act as a protective coat.



EDIBLE SILICON CHIPS

2009-11-14T21:18:27.536-08:00

From the olden days of instigating drugs to patient and hoping that it gives the desired results, advancement in medical sciences have gone way beyond imagination and expectations. The recent development being the edible silicon chips. Developed by Proteus, a Redwood city, California company, the chip will be swallowed by the patient and it will assist in tracking whether the patient actually consumes the drug or not!Hold on, this is not all that it can do, there is more to it. The chip can also help to effects of the drugs which the patient consume and note the activities of it inside human body. What this technology has done to the world is, it has opened new doors in medical investigations and researches.Well, medical field seems to keeping in pace with the growth in diseases. On the technical aspects of this silicon chip, it sends signal to an external patch that will assist in monitoring essential parameters like temperature, heart rate,body angle and so on and so forth. These kind of innovations are becoming increasingly a necessity rather than an additional invention to counteract new diseases that seems to emerge almost daily from nowhere.

VACCINE FOR TUBERCULOSIS-"Vanderbilt doctors"

2009-11-14T10:05:26.154-08:00

Vanderbilt investigators have cracked one of clinical medicine’s enduring mysteries and it is the tuberculosis vaccine. The current TB vaccine known as known as BCG (bacille Calmette-Guérin) no longer prevents the bacterial lung infection that kills more than 1.7 million people worldwide every year but it is still 80 percent effective against “disseminated TB” (TB infection in many parts of the body) in early childhood. BCG was made by weakening (attenuating) a strain of bacteria that causes tuberculosis in cows and that genetically is 98 percent identical to the human TB germ.
Kernodle and colleagues found that the TB vaccine has acquired some traits that make it less effective in evoking a sustained immune response. When they take away these traits, the TB vaccine induces stronger immune responses in mice.
In the current studies, first author Lakshmi Sadagopal, PhD, research instructor of Medicine, vaccinated mice with a modified BCG (genetically changed in three ways to reduce or eliminate the production of several antioxidants) and examined the immune response in the days following vaccination and later with a “challenge” dose of BCG. She found that, compared to BCG, the modified BCG induced greater cytokine (immune regulatory factor) production during the early phase of the immune response, more CD8 cell-killing T cells at the peak of the primary response, and more CD4 helper T cells during the memory phase. Modified BCG also produced greater recall immune responses and was eliminated better by the vaccinated host animal than the parent BCG vaccine, which might correlate with improved safety in humans.
The Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation has licensed the modification technology developed by Kernodle and colleagues.



TIPS FOR CHILD SAFETY

2009-11-14T10:02:25.287-08:00

For all the development that humanity has seen, their commonsense is yet to see even a minor upwards drift. Take Child-Care for instance, especially when transporting them. Holding a child’s hand on or near road.. How many people do it in the right way? On or Near the roads, the child must be held away from the road i.e to the left of the holder when the road/traffic is to his right and vice-versa and the walk must always be opposite to the direction of traffic i.e facing it. Children tend to get suddenly attracted and run towards their object of attraction which can be on the other side of the road or on it, endangering him/her. So parents must ensure that they never let go of the child’s hands and also hold it tightly enough to prevent escape. This rule is never followed especially by newly married couples who are too busy fondling each other to make sure their child’s hand is held constantly. Thanks to “ultra road grip” tires and Disk Brakes, vehicles, especially buses and bikes with rash drivers on them, zoom past close to the pavement, so close their handlebars nudge our elbows. What if its a child’s head it nudges a little to forcefully next time? And the “Style Statement” Crash Guards with the appearance of a Bull’s Horns do pedestrians no good either.Another aspect of child safety with connection to roads is sending children out to do minor shopping, etc. When sending out children, it must be ensured that they are of enough age. If there’s an insistent younger brother/sister wanting to accompany the elder-one outside, allow it only if the elder one is obedient and capable of ensuring their safety. Never send them to places which will require them to cross roads. When giving money, it shouldn’t be given in hand noticeably, give them enough change and a carry bag so that there is no need for them to wait for change and packaging and also avoid their concentration being diverted to ensuring the safety of the goods they purchased and are holding in hand. Giving money noticeably or making them wait unnecessarily outside shops will only encourage kidnappers and thieves. Be careful when giving tricycles to be ridden on colony or neighborhood roads, cause on the roads they may appear too small for car drivers to notice. Give STRICT and CLEAR instructions when sending children out and ensure there is a responsible adult accompanying children on tricycles. It would be very useful if slips of paper with full home addresses were left in the child’s dress pockets always, along with some money for emergencies to make a call home etc.Children in/on vehicles is another such area of insufficient commonsense application. Little kindergarten kids and and growing teenagers returning form evening or early-morning tuitions sitting behind their dads scooter’s are dazed by the cool air blowing in their face and tend to fall asleep sitting., while their parent remains oblivious to this fact. School children in overloaded and fast auto-rickshaws, especially the ones near the corners are facing risky probabilities of falling out of the vehicle and onto the road. Children left sitting on cycles near a shop his/her father has gone to, is another common sight. This is perilous because even a vehicle moving fast near the cycle is capable of toppling it to one side. This is true especially in India and other 3rd world countries where even the use of cycles as “family” transportation is still prominent. Think about the seriousness of a head injury to a child from falling off the bike or auto-rickshaw or cycle. It becomes unimaginably horrific if there is traff[...]

RHINOPLASTY-"CHANGING TRENDS"

2009-11-08T08:06:03.640-08:00

The nose occupies the central portion of face and is the most prominent part of it.A deformed nose draws attention to the face ignoring other facial features.Improvement in the shape of the nose significantly changes the whole facial appearance.No wonder even today Rhinoplasty is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery,the world over.

20 years ago when I started taking interested in Rhinoplasty Information,there were very few ENT units where this surgery was performed regularly.Today this operation is practiced routinely at many ENT departments.There is a definite change in patient profile as well.

Fineness Rhinoplasty is a precise plastic operation for improvement of less perceptible anatomic changes by delicate sculpturing reshaping and altering the minute anatomic relationship of the bony and cartilaginous nasal skeleton.The dynamics of healing has to be considered as well since a good looking nose on the operation table may not look so perfect in the last post-operative period if the changes during healing are not anticipated and compensated.

Proper patient selection is very important;an emotionally stable patient with not too thick or thin skin is a good candidate.The surgeon must refrain from suggesting the patient his idea of a good looking nose but listen carefully to his concerns and decide if what he wants is technically feasible.



BEST ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE

2009-11-01T06:11:36.213-08:00

Market is flooded with so many Antivirus, Antimalware and Internet Security packages that it is difficult to find a genuinely effective one.There continues to be several arguments with regards to which is the best. Here is a fair review from my own experience.

The Best Three:

1. Kaspersky Internet Security.
2. BitDefender Internet Security.
3. Eset NOD32 AntiVirus.

You don't see several familiar names here...and that is what this article is all about.

It is natural to expect Techies of these nations (Russia and other other eastern European) are thus well aware of the tricks their fellow countrymen (the hackers) employ to create Trojans and viruses. They were best at detecting most kind of Malware. It should be no wonder if the best Anti-Virus Packeges too are from these Nations.

Just look at this-

Kaspersky Lab... a Russian company
Bitdefender......a Romanian Company
Eset.............a Slovakian Company

and it turns out indeed they are the best Antivirus companies.

Testing and Benchmarks.

No Antivirus can detect all viruses. This is a fact. Best Anti-Virus is one which detects most of them. We call this detection rate.

Kaspersky, Bitdefender and NOD32 have been consistently observed to have highest detection rates in the Industry. Many times more than 90%. While most of others have a detection rates of 80%-90% (Of Course this is arguable given there are several testings giving different results)

Kaspersky engine is used in other enterprise level security solutions and is regarded very high amongst Hackers.

NOD32 antivirus too is said to be used in Microsoft Internal Security.

Why are they not Popular?

Then comes an obvious question... If these three are the best why are they not so popular among general public? Answer: Marketing.

Norton and McAfee are two of the most popular Anti-Virus vendors.These are American Companies. Almost all of the PCs ,When bought ,are provided with a limited period version of these softwares. For example, all dell systems by default carry 15 month McAfee Security.

when his Antivirus expires, what an average guy does? He buys the same package for one more year. Often that is only brand he knows. This lead proliferation to not so effective Anti-Viruses in the market despite availability of better ones.

Conclusion

What appears good may not always be so.When security is your priority take an informed decision.

SECRET OF OIL PULLING

2009-11-01T06:00:25.365-08:00

Oil pulling Therapy is a regimen that not many people have known about, until recently. You may have heard it pop up in various forums such as CureZone (and read many testimonials), and may have some inkling on what it involves, but I wrote this article so you will know all the details.Using this method, one could heal a lot of chronic illnesses, diseases, preventing the need for surgery or medication (that can cause bad side effects).
Now, let me get into the specifics of the method. Here is how one would do oil pulling:

1. Every morning, before eating anything, consume 1 tbspoon of cold pressed oil, but DO NOT actually swallow the oil! Slowly swish the oil in your mouth, sipping and sucking it through your teeth for up to 25 mins. Use a lot of saliva, and mix the two together often. Doing this will use your enzymes, which in turn will draw out harmful toxins out of your bloodstream. So make sure the oil isn't swallowed - it will absorb toxins.

2. Continue swishing. As you continue swishing the oil, it eventually gets much more thin, and even turns white. Spit out a little into the sink. If the color is not white, it means you are not done. So continue oil pulling until the color of the oil is white.

3. After you're done, clean your sink, because it may contain lots of harmful toxins that you just eliminated. People have actually taken small drops of the remnants, and view them under a microscope, only to view toxic substances.

Oil pulling will generally increase your metabolic rate, and thus your health. Another beneficial effect most people have is the curing of bleedy gums, and cleaner teeth. But of course, the main benefit lies in its restoration of health.

I've done oil pulling for over a few months, and at first I didn't really notice any benefits. However, after 2 months I can now attribute my lively energy, and my healthy digestion to oil pulling.

Here are some tips to keep in mind while oil pulling:

1) Do it the first thing before eating any breakfast. If you have any chronic ailments such as acne, or candida, you should do oil pulling more than once a day, but do it on an empty stomach.

2) Please do not swallow the cold-pressed oil while swishing. The oil will be contaminated with toxins as it draws it out. If you do swallow it, nothing horrible will happen to you - it'll just be eliminated through your bowels, but better not to swallow.

3) The best oils to do this is sunflower and sesame oil. You should experiment which different oils and see which one fits you the best.



NEW PLANETS AROUND OUR SOLAR SYSTEM

2009-11-01T05:47:02.469-08:00

The 32 new planets were found over the past five years using an instrument called a spectrograph at the European Southern Observatory in La Silla, Chile.

Known as HARPS, for High Accuracy Radial velocity Planetary Searcher, the spectrograph detects wobbles in a star's orbit caused by the pull of an unseen exoplanet.

The HARPS team selected stars like our sun, as well as lower-mass dwarf stars, to watch for wobbles.

Red dwarf stars were targets because they are dimmer, low-mass stars, which makes it easier to detect wobbles from low-mass satellite planets, said team member Nuno Santos, of the University of Porto, Portugal.

The 32 newfound exoplanets include several super-Earths, such as two planets no more than five times Earth's mass and two about six times Earth's mass, the Observatory of Geneva's Udry said.

The largest newly discovered exoplanet is a monster at seven to eight times Jupiter's mass, he estimated.

In addition, several Jupiter-mass planets were found around stars that don't have many metals.

Previous theories had stated that planets wouldn't tend to form around metal-poor stars, since planets are thought to take shape inside the metal-filled disks of debris left over from stellar birth.

The new finds suggest that astronomers might need to revise theories of planet formation—and may increase the number of possible star systems in the universe.

(Related: "Turbulence Key to Planet Formation, New Study Suggests.")

Exact details about each of the 32 new planets have yet to be published, Udry said, but "a bunch of the new planets will be described in the next six months."



PETRO CROPS -"Green Fuel"

2009-11-01T05:41:04.644-08:00

The Planning Commission, Govt. of India, has launched an ambitious National Mission on Biodiesel to be implemented by a number of government agencies and coordinated by the Ministry of Rural Development. The Mission focuses on the cultivation of the physic nut, Jatropha curcas, a shrubby plant of the castor family. The seed contains 30-40% oil and can be mixed with diesel after trans-esterification. Initially Jatropha cultivation will be demonstrated on 0.4 m ha of wasteland area across the country. The entire cost economics is dependant on the productivity, quality and performance of the raw material. The Government is also discussing a National Biofuel Policy.

DBT has been entrusted through a micro-mission with the task of developing technologies that convert fiber, starch and sugar from woody plants and agricultural wastes into useful biofuel products. The thrust is on developing ethanol using lignocellulosic waste as raw material, identifying recombinant microbial stains for enhanced ethanol recovery, producing high quality raw material for biodiesel production and developing the enzymatic trans-esterfication process for more efficient conversion of oil to biodiesel. For the first time, a systematic scientific survey, characterization and collection of superior accessions of J.curcas from across the country has been taken up. More than 1500 accessions have been collected and characterized. Nurseries have been established at 12 locations for providing quality planting material to the National Mission. Nearly 0.8 million quality plantlets have been planted over an area of 300ha. A special focus is being given to crop improvement and on genes involved in oil biosynthesis. Other 'petro-crops' being investigated include Karanja (Pongamia pinnata), toothbrush tree (Salvadora persica) and Mahua (Madhuca indica)

With continued policy support and vigorous technology, biofuels could very soon be breathing new fire.
