Researchers analyzed the 30 mobile phones from several different people. The results show that mobile phones contain live bacteria 18 times more than the toilet door handle.
This research is very surprising, because in addition contains 18 times more bacteria than the toilet door, the researchers also found that bacteria that nest on the phone is on 'warning level' of environmental bacteria levels.



A cell phone can be filled with concentrated bacteria, including faecal coliforms bacteria, which can cause indigestion and stomach disorders in a fairly serious.
Although not directly dangerous, but elevated levels of bacteria showed that the phone has poor hygiene. In addition, the phone can also serve as a convenient breeding place for germs more dangerous.
"The level of potentially harmful bacteria on phones already exceeds the normal scale. Mobile phones need to be sterilized," said Jim Francis, Sanitation and Hygiene experts, as reported by the Telegraph.


The results showed how bacteria could reproduce easily, on the surface of the phone and can switch to another person, who holds directly or shake hands with the owner of the phone.
Francis suggested, should be frequently cleaned and sterilized phone with alcohol wipe, ie cleaners that contain some alcohol. This will better protect you from dangerous bacteria that nest on the phone.

Steve Gator

The fate of Steve Gator, 26, really unlucky. Half his head was crushed in the attack two brutal thugs. Lucky life is saved, although the incident because she suffered from lifelong disability. Head by half, and he looks very scary.



Surgeons act quickly, by removing some of the crushed skull and immediately pelastik operation. The result as can be seen in this picture, the shape of the head of Steve, who daily work as a forklift driver, be weird.Told, that the two thugs to attack Steve and crushes his head on the pavement. Curiously, the AGO, rather than punishing perpetrators, it dropped the case so that makes Steve's mother, Nina Gator shocked and outraged. "I can not believe this," said Mrs. Gator, 47, was angry. "Everyone is entitled to justice and that is determined by the jury." she said.CPS lawyers said it needed more evidence before go to trial. But the Lady Gator vehemently said, "Now our children walk with half his head, much less evidence is needed??"The attacks happened when Steve came home from work, heading home. As a result of that sadistic assault, Steve, who comes from Harold Hill, Romford, Esex, suffered serious brain damage. Now he often suffered from seizures, it is difficult to speak and lost his memory.
Incident, occurred precisely at 7:30 PM on January 15 last, when he walked home. When it came shouts of derision about his cousin. He was angry, but one of the men, hitting him so hard that he crashed, and his head hit the pavement too hard. Severe condition that made him an instant coma, and it lasted for two weeks.His mother panicked and confused, she always keep her son's bedside was treated at Queen's Hospital, Romford. Serious swelling on his brain, and doctors immediately did surgery a few hours after he was taken. Fortunately the rapid handling of Steve that his life was saved.
This is a miracle, because, Steve brain damage, so severe, even the doctors have warned parents Steve, Nina, that the life expectancy (chance of surviving), to her son only 15 percent. In fact Steve could survive. Two days after the incident, police arrested two teenagers who allegedly attacked a stir in it.While Steve, a week after the coma was brought home by the parents who will do treatment at home. Steve was also forced to be dismissed from work.


With tears, Nina says, now his son became a different boy. He was no longer like the old Steve, his mother said sadly. "He was once so independent, but now he can not do that anymore, now he also can not drive," said Nina. "He only has half a head. Now he really lost his self-confidence, "added Nina again.Now, says Nina, there's nothing to protect (the skull) brain, there's only skin. "We are now awaiting the execution of the operation again, to install the new skull, a kind of dishes that will be placed there. Therefore, she was very surprised, if the perpetrator who attacked the Steve, was not punished.
"Actually, this condition will be borne by my son during his life," he said.Borough Crown Prosecutor General Havering, Corinne Soanders, said: "A decision was made to charge the two defendants with wounding, breaking the law on January 17, 2009." This case will be continued, if the CPS has included enough evidence and relevant to the case it.Termination of the case is really painful for Steve's family, especially for victims who have lifelong disabilities."I apologize to the victims and their families, not to convey this decision to them personally," said the prosecutor. I am willing, if they (family Steve), would like to request further clarification regarding this case, prosecutors added another.

Skiing on rocks


Those "crazy" was first done this in the year 1990. Sport of skiing and skate boards are done at the steep mountain slopes, but without the ice. Yes, they glide above the ground and rocks. Of course, danger is very great, even categorize as a sport can be a super dangerous. Today, more and more people who love this sport, and claims can not live without it.

Scientists create 'sexual tsunami'


Scientists at the University of Toronto found that by genetically tweaking fruit flies so they failed to produce a particular type of pheromone or odour, it turned them irresistible to their species.
Professor Joel Levine, who led the study, removed the cuticular hydrocarbon pheromone, used by the flies to communicate.

They discovered that when the pheromone was removed, it created a "sexual tsunami" where the bugs proved attractive to one another, regardless of sex. The research found that male fruit flies with no history of homosexuality attempted to mate with their pheromone-free males, according to the research published in journal Nature.
Even flies of a different species were interested, according to the research team.
"Lacking these chemical signals eliminated barriers to mating," Prof Levine said.
He conceded however that although pheromones play a key part in the human mating game, ours is far more complex than that of fruit flies.
"We may rely more on the visual system, and we may have a more complex way of assessing other individuals and classifying them and determining how we're going to relate to them than a fly does."

Candy-fueled rocket

Chewing gum or candy is a preoccupation, especially for children. Almost all the boys love it. But unexpectedly, the candy is now able to be a rocket fuel. Were the scientists from the University of Hertfordshire, England, who recently found it.

This discovery began in 2005, when the university began a program of rocket-fueled rocket until candy created successfully. This rocket has a speed of up to 1200 miles per hour that can undertake only within three seconds.
Although still a preliminary findings, this rocket has attracted the attention of many circles. The proof was the longest rocket sized four meters, the chance to appear in The Times Magazine in late August. Not only that, the rocket fuel candy, also never fly as high as 8,000 feet, equivalent to 2.4 kilometers in the sky of Scotland, at the International Rocket Week event.


"We do not want to suggest that corporate jet maker, and the rocket began to think to use sugars as their rocket fuel. But, they can think of alternative fuels more environmentally friendly," said Ray Wilkinson, a lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire, as quoted Sciencedaily.com site.

There are 26 coral preached as much as 1.192 womb area of the small islands. However, only about 200 islands are inhabited by humans' sake only. The name of this country comes than words "islands-range of mountains" (malai in Tamil language, intended to "mountain" and teevu in Tamil mean "island"), it's also may mean "a thousand islands." Some scholars believe that the name "Maldives" is taken rather than maladvipa Sanskrit word, meaning to "the composition of the islands", or instead of "Mahila dvipa", intends "island of women". There is also a trusted name meant "palace" (rather than words Mahal in Arabic) following the introduction of Islam in 1153, the island then became a party rather than Portuguese (1558), Netherlands (1654) and British occupiers of property (1887). In 1965, the Maldives, proclaimed its independence rather than Britain, and in 1968, the Sultanate system has been replaced by a Republican.

Caloplaca Obamae

CALIFORNIA - Scientists have discovered a new species of moss. Uniquely, the naming of this moss profiteer last name of U.S. President Barack Obama.
Riverside Museum Head Moss Herbarium, Kerru Knudsen of the University of California, found a new type of lichen is when conducting a survey of plant diversity of algae in the Santa Rosa Island, California in 2007.


"I called it Caloplaca obamae, as my appreciation to the president, because he has supported the world of science," says Knudsen. "When I make a collection of recent research of this moss plants, coinciding with the time last week the Obama campaign in the U.S. Presidential election candidates," he added.
As quoted from Live Science, Friday (4/7/2009), Caloplaca obamae grow on the ground. The current population is nearly extinct because it is threatened by the existence of the farm houses in the Santa Rosa Island, which reached up to 100 land.


"These species can not survive on agricultural land and deer on Santa Rosa Island," says Knudsen. "But with a reduced number of farm houses and deer populations, will help the sustainability of this new species," explains Knudsen.
According to the research, this moss is produced by a fungus and algae living together. There are approximately 17 thousand species of moss around the world, 1,500 species of them are from California. While 300 species of mosses are found in the Santa Rosa Island, this is not surprising, because the moss is apparently native plants that grow in the area.
 

"The discovery of Caloplaca obamae tells us, that there is a species of lichen and other unique plants at Santa Rosa Island are extinct. The presence of them, probably just have not been known to the world of science, because undefeated by the presence of sheep farming began to flourish in the era of 1850," he concluded .

5 dangerous Association

Religious beliefs and dogmatic tradition, often makes people ideological groups, leading them to isolation from mainstream society and become a secret confidence defensively. They believe themselves to be part of some sacred mission to change the world and spend their lives following the teachings of their leader. This often causes people to move in a closed but has roots that spread throughout the nations. They have their secrets laws and activities that are often hidden from non-members. These organizations make the esoteric doctrine known only to their members, and hidden from ordinary people. So let's look at some of the world's secret societies that formed long ago and most still live and perform their movements secretly.


The Order of Nine Angles (Ona) is a secret organization that Satan appeared among the people of the United Kingdom in the 1980s and 1990s. These communities claim to be followers of Satanism and regard them as an individual who is pursuing to create self superiority and wisdom, by facing challenges and overcoming the limits of physical and mental. Currently, Ona arranged around the secret cells, known as the traditional nexions and within syllables creepy. Ona writings that strange considering the human victims as a way to eliminate the weaknesses and the tribes claim that evil is an important part of a strategy to carry out the mission of evil, more enjoyable way of life, and to disrupt and ultimately conquering the common people.


 Thule Society in Germany. A society that the idea of brotherhood deaths centered on reaching the New World Order is very strange, in simple terms means to kill people, to reduce the population. Members of the public who was in Thule practicing Sexual Magic and Black Magic. Exhibition supernatural Thule Society regularly held, during which they communicated with demons who died, whether men or who only appears as a spirit that guides them. Adolf Hitler joined this society in 1919, under the leadership of Dietrich Eckhart. Eckhart involving Hitler for the devil ritual magic, which eventually made Hitler was sexually impotent, which is considered as the cause, why Hitler became so sadistic killer.


According to the Wikipedia definition, Freemasonry is a fraternal organization of public spirited, which has existed since the 17th century. Freemasonry's central activities are working in a local charity, or the larger society, but society has a large amount of controversy, and the real secrets are buried in a long history. It has been said that the Masons, claiming that Masonry is open for one of every faith, and that it is a brotherhood to help other Masons. But that's only to attract more people to this community. G symbols used in their signs, literally translated as Masonic gnosis, or generations with Lucifer and God as a main enemy of Christianity. Mason took the oath rather deadly, blood-oath to any degree to 33 degrees. They swear allegiance to the God of Masonry, and country above all else, and under the threat of capital punishment, vowed not to reveal the secrets of Freemasonry - not even told their wives. 


The Order of Skull and Bones, a community of Yale University, originally known as the Brotherhood of Death, and was founded in 1832 by students. These communities are surrounded by conspiracy theories, the most popular is probably the idea that the founders of the CIA is a member of this group. But another truth is more shocking is that, like the others, hiding a dark secret society of evil practices as well. Sexual activities they incorporated into their practices, where they lay naked in a coffin, told them the sexual secrets of the deepest and most dark, as part of their initiation. Like Ona their main objective is the New World Order. Ron Rosenbaum in his writings, also showed that the Bones and the Bavarian Illuminists closely related to each other, providing evidence such as' haunting photographs altar room at one of the Masonic lodges at Nuremberg that is closely associated with Illuminism. "Surprisingly, President Bush is an expert in the United Brotherhood of Yale's Skull and Bones Society. 

Apart from some very famous secret societies of all time, is Rosicrucianism, Order Templis Orientis, Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, The Knights Templar, the Illuminati, Opus Dei and the Priory of Sion 


Assassin,,, is considered the most frightening of all secret societies, who killed each victim regardless of the guards and security personnel. They do cruel murder, against famous people, and feared by the kings, princes, sheikhs and sultans. Most members, beginning a secret group of followers of a branch Nizari Iliyya Isma Shia Muslim sect, and are located mainly in Syria and Persia. Community led by Hasan ibn Sabbah (1034-1124), who created a group of fans, known as the Fedayeen, who did whatever he commanded the blind obedience. They appear as a simple farmer during the day, but became violent and very capable, fighter in the darkness of the night, attacking their victims in the dark. 

Measure the temperature via the sound of crickets


To measure the air temperature, usually people will use a thermometer. If you live in the countryside or a quiet place, trying to do with listening to the crickets.Sound of crickets from the friction created between the wings with some other body parts. Their voices were very distinctive, and clearly heard in an environment which is not too noisy.
Not all crickets can skirl, only male crickets can do that. The voice is like a melodious song, which is sung to attract female crickets.
In addition to good to be heard, rhythmic sound of the crickets are apparently also be used to estimate the temperature outdoors. The more often the sound of crickets is heard, the more heat the ambient temperature at the time.


Quoted from Snopes, Wednesday (07/21/2010), experiments to prove this had started in 1897 by the American physicist, Amos Dolbear. His theory of the thermometer crickets became known as Dolbear's Law.
Many years since the discovery, a formula about the relationship to the crickets and the temperature continues to grow. But among the various existing formulas, the most frequently used are as follows :


To estimate the ambient temperature in Fahrenheit, count the number of sounds of crickets in 14 seconds then add 40. (T = n + 40) ie 30 times the crickets + 40 = 70 degrees Fahrenheit

To estimate the ambient temperature in Fahrenheit, count the number of the sound of crickets in 25 seconds, divided by three, then added 4. (T = (n / 3) + 4) examples: (48 times the sound of crickets / 3) + 4 = 20 degrees Celsius
  

Above formula proved by Dr. Peggy LeMone, scientists The Globe Program in experiments in 2007, funded by NASA. In his report he concluded that the formula is very close to actual temperature, measured with a thermometer.
But Dr Peggy gave a note, this formula should be used at temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit (12.78 degrees Celsius). Because if it is too cold, usually male crickets are not eager to call the female.
 

The tradition of cutting fingers

Apakah ungkapan kesedihan yang dipertunjukkan oleh seseorang yang kehilangan anggota keluarganya. Menangis, barang kali itu yang paling sering kita jumpai. Bagi umumnya masyarakat pengunungan tengah dan khususnya masyarakat Wamena ungkapan kesedihan akibat kehilangan salah satu anggota keluarga, tidak hanya dengan menangis saja.

Normally, they would smear themselves with mud for a certain period. But what makes them different cultures with many tribal cultures in other areas are cut off their fingers.

Almost the same as what is done by the Yakuza (the famous hard-line group orangasasi in Japan), if they had violated rules set by the organization or fail to execute their mission. As an expression of remorse, they must cut one of their fingers. For mountian community center, a cut finger is made for any member of the family as husband, wife, father, mother, son, brother, or sister died.

But do not close the possibility of cutting fingers carried by family members of the parent was male or female. Cutting fingers can also be interpreted as an attempt to prevent the 'repeated' this evil that has claimed the lives of someone in your family who are grieving.  

As long as the story of a mother Moni (a tribe in the area Paniai), she told us that his little finger bitten by her mother when she was born. It had to be done, by the mother, because some children who were born before, always died. With children right pinkie finger decided she'd just given birth, the mother hopes that what happened to the children not previously occurred on the baby. This sounds very eksrim, but the fact is the case, Moni origin woman has been giving a lot of grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the mother. 

But now the culture of 'cut the finger' is deprecated. Now rarely encountered people who do that, in recent decades. What remains can we meet today are those who've done it long ago. This is caused by the influence of religion who has signed up to remote areas in Papua.

......Cutting fingers done in various ways. Someone cut a finger by using sharp instruments like knives, machetes or axes. Alternatively, by binding their finger with a rope for some time, so that blood flow is bound to die, then cut......
