Einstein’s ultimate theory

Image

Albert Einstein would like to know God’s thoughts. However, as he lay dying in Princeton Hospital then and there he knew that there are secrets that God cannot share.

Einstein started with the Theory of Everything, which can replace quantum mechanics, an undertaking to extend general relativity and unite forces in the universe.

He hoped that he would have rid physics of the unpredictability in quantum mechanics and show everyone that everything in the world is predictable, which can be explained by mathematics. He would show the world that quantum mechanics is wrong, a three decade project that he continued, until his last breath.

Experts claimed that the Master theory may be considered a flop. However, it is an idea that sparks interest to the great men of physics. As of the moment, many believe that String Theory is the nearest to what we have in the theory of everything.  

Nikola Tesla: getting to know the man who is behind it all

Nikola Tesla, a Serbian- American inventor worked for Thomas Edison in the beginning of his career. He fixed motors and DC generators. However, when he asked Edison for a compensation for all his contribution, Edison laughed and said,” Tesla, you don’t understand our American humor.”

Tesla went to work on his alternating current electrical system and disappointed Edison, who was promoting on his direct electrical system. Comparing both, the former had system  only require thinner wires and could transmit electricity in far places. The latter need a power plant in every square mile and could only transport electricity in nearby places.

Families near Edison’s laboratory noticed that their pets were missing. This was because Edison paid schoolboys 25 cents a head for live dogs and cats. He then electrocuted these animals using Tesla’s alternating current, so that it can make it seem to people that the latter’s invention is not suitable for home use.

Marconi, the Nobel Prize winner for his invention of the radio simply based his work on Tesla’s inventions.  As stated by Tesla, he said “Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents.”

On the lighter side of things, let’s talk about Tesla’s love life. Well, this guy focused his time and energy on innovations for the greater good. He somewhat found love in a hopeless place.  As quoted below:

“I have been feeding pigeons, thousands of them for years.  But there was one pigeon, a beautiful bird, pure white with light gray tips on its wings; that one was different.  It was a female. I would know that pigeon anywhere. No matter, where I was that pigeon would find me, when I wanted here I had only to wish and call her she would come flying to me. She understood me and I understood her.

I loved that pigeon.

Yes, I loved her as a man loves a woman, and she loves me. “

Above all, this guy is an absolute genius. No fuss, just pure science.

Chrono- Displacement Disorder: fictional or a brink of possibility?

review_illo,0Audrey Niffenegger’s first novel, The Time Traveller’s Wife, an international bestseller and produced on silver screen focused on Chrono- Displacement Disorder, which is the genetic illness of the future.  Henry DeTamble, the main character was first diagnosed and was thought to become the possible bringer of new species. In one of the occasions, he visits stages of his life that made an impact, such as the decapitation of his mom during while she drives her Ford car.

At times there are two lead Henrys coming from different times. Often there is none at all.

As told both in the movies and in the book, we all have a subjective clock in our heads and a circardian timepiece, which tells us whether it is morning or night.

Scientists cannot imagine how genes could ever make time traveling possible. However, a slightest possible is said to become a reality. Paul Davies, Australian Centre for Astrobiology and the author of How to Build a Time Machine stated that it is possible.

Genetically modified organism: The Chimera

ImageAnimals have long been experimented in laboratories in order to answer problems in human transplant and aging, such as the Methuselah mice, pigs with man-made corneas and monkeys with manipulated genes that force them to work without any compensation.

Currently, Stanford University’s one of the best researchers Irving Weissman vowed to start a half-breed mouse- human. The study intents to inject human brain cells to the brains of the developing rodent to check and see what will happen next.  The National Academy of Sciences will reveal Stem cell research guidelines to support the study.

Professor Henry T. Greely, director of the Center for Law and Biosciences and leader of the committee said that, ”If the mouse shows human-like behaviors, like improved memory or problem-solving, it’s time to stop.”

H.G. Well’s 1896 novel The Island of Dr. Moreau:

I’m not sure why scientists are fixated on the idea that small rodents can help humanity, but I’ve been seeing it a lot lately. Besides the Methuselah mouse example mentioned earlier, rat neurons in a dish are being taught how to fly planes; and hairless mice have been used to grow human ears:

On the hand, the sheep too took part in this shocking scientific breakthrough. It was noted that it had 15 percent human cells and 85 per cent animal cells, their development can bring forth an anticipation of animal organs being transplanted to humans.  University of Nevada’s Professor Esmail Zanjani, spent seven years and £ 5 million to its perfection, this includes injecting adult human cells to the sheep’s unborn young.

In addition, the process involves extracting stem cells from a person’s bone marrow and after which injects it to the peritoneum of a sheep’s fetus. When the lamb is born it would have a liver, heart, lungs and brain that are not completely human.

“Big Foot” in Saskatchewan

A footprint on the snow by the “Bigfoot” in Saskatchewan.

Shaylane Beatty, 20 years old, a non-believer of Sasquatch, thought she saw a bear on the side of the road as she drove to Prince Albert one Saturday. However, when she drove closer, the animal had two legs.

As Beatty drove from Candle Lake Road to catch up with her Christmas shopping, she noticed that at about 300 yards, the creature was walking on the woodlands near Torch Lake.

The furry brown creature is noted to be 8 to 9 feet tall, brawny and with long floppy arms attached to its broad shoulders.

The effect of seeing the brute creature made her swerve and nearly hit a ditch.

ImageShe returned to the area the next day with her two uncles and found hundreds of 50 centimeter foot marks.

These men followed the big foot’s stride, but found it difficult to do so.

Tom Biscardi, who’s been hunting Sasquatches for three decades and runs www.searchingforbigfoot.com, said that it is certainly the find of the century.

Beatty’s uncles also sent Biscardi some hair sample for analysis.

Idaho State University anatomy professor and author of Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science, Jeff Meldrum, said three Sasquatch sightings have been recorded in Saskatchewan.

After seeing the pictures taken by Beatty’s uncles, Meldrum said the length of the footprints belonged to those found in North America

He also added that, “Given the quality of the photographs, it’s impossible to render any meaningful analysis”.

The Loch ness Monster of the East

Two black-colored, unidentified animals were spotted by over 100 tourists in Lake Tianchi on August 19, 2007

In Beijing, China it was reported that local officials had sightings of as many as 20 of the unidentified mysterious creatures in a lake near the North Korean border.

 

The beast, which is the Eastern version of Scotland’s Nessie was seen on the morning of July 11, swimming in schools through the lake in the Changbai mountains found in the northeastern Jilin province.

 

P200907291441292102541991

Taken by a Chinese researcher for the first time, which shows the monster of Lake Tianchi emerged on July 21, 2005 in daylight.

One of the officials also shared that the monsters appeared five times within the 50-minute time frame. The provincial forestry bureau vice-director Zhang Lufeng also gave accounts that at times there were several of them. He also added that the creatures which are 1.25- 2 miles in distance appeared only as white or black dots. However, the ripples in the water, suggests that the spots are biological creatures.

 

Going back through time in the year 1903, the local records showed an animal resembling a huge buffalo. This brute instantly gave out a deafening sound as it sprang out of the water ready to attack three people. Fortunately, one of them shot the beast on the belly for six times and then it vanished into the water.

Recently, a sighting of the Lake Tianchi Monster was compared with the head like that of a human, but with huge ball-shaped eyes, bulging mouth and a neck at 1.2 -1.5 meters in length. Moreover, it also had an unwrinkled gray skin and a white ring, which separates its neck and trunk.

 

 

British scientist gives a lead to the mysterious Himalayan yeti

yetiBryan Sykes, genetics professor of the Oxford University concluded in his research that the Himalayan yeti may in fact be part of a family of brown bears.

In Oxford University, genetics professor Bryan Sykes discovered that the creature’s hair samples on advanced DNA tests matched those with the ancient polar bear.

Moreover, he added that the “yeti”, may be a biological creature and is a cross-breed of polar bears and brown bears.

He also pointed out that its behavior may be linked to being hybrid as it behaves differently from normal bears as reported by eyewitnesses.

He carried out DNA tests on two unidentified animals from distinct locations, one from Ladakh, north of India and west of Himalayas and Bhutan, 1,285km (800 miles) further east.

After which, the outcomes were compared to the genomes of other animals stored on a DNA database._70534978_bwwyvnxcaaaoh63-1

Sykes uncovered that he found a 100% match with a 40,000 and 120,000 year old DNA sample of an ancient polar bear jawbone found in Svalbard, Norway. This dates back to the years when both white and brown bears are separating as breeds.

The single sample from Ladakh came from the mummified remains of specie around 40 years ago, while the latter, a single hair strand found in a bamboo forest by filmmakers around 10 years ago.

This could mean that there is a possible hybridization between the brown bear and the ancient polar bear’s descendant.

In the year 2008, American scientists studied hairs given to the British Broadcasting Corporation which were claimed to be from the yeti. As the research progressed, they concluded that the hairs, taken from the north-east Indian state of Meghalaya belonged to a class of Himalayan goat, the Himalayan Goral.
