Don't make your kids Nicotine Addicted

No Smoking
Are you a smoker? Do you have kids? If your answer is yes to both the questions, then you must take some extra care while smoking. Because your smoking habit may make your child addicted to nicotine! No, this is not my bluff, but the results of a new Canadian study published in journal Addictive Behaviors.

During the study, Canadian researchers looked at 1800 kids, who were all exposed to secondhand smoke and aged between 10 to 12 years. Defying the conventional belief that secondhand smoke can't make a person nicotine addict, the researchers found that 5% of those kids became addicted to nicotine, even though they never smoked themselves.

In my view, this is really a serious issue that we all must look into. If you are a smoker, you must take care not to smoke before or near kids. And if possible quit smoking. Don't make your kids Nicotine Addicted!

Attempt to Cross English Channel with a Pedal-powered Airship Fails

Yesterday, a French man falied in his second attempt to become the first person to cross the English Channel in a pedal-powered airship. Stephane Rousson, 39, from Nice, called off from half-way when change in the wind direction hampered his journey that he started from Hythe on the Kent coast.

During the attempt, Mr Rousson was suspended underneath the 16 metre long helium filled balloon, powering the two propellers with his feet using a bicycle-like contraption. His specially designed airship requires only two knots to become airborne. So, he had to wait for more than a week to for winds of less than 5mph. Unfortunately, when he was half-way to the French coast, wind changed it's direction and he had to abort the mission.

In June also, Mr Rousson was forced by winds to postpone his first attempt to cross the English Channel, despite waiting two weeks for the ideal weather conditions.

Energy Drinks are not so Good for Health

Love energy drinks? Then you must pay your attention to a new study published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence. The study says that energy drinks can have more than 10 times the caffeine of soft drinks, which is not so beneficial for our health.

The study, led by Roland Griffiths from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, reports that energy drinks can cause caffeine intoxication. Caffeine intoxication can lead to serious nervousness, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, upset stomach, tremors, rapid heartbeat etc. In rare cases of overdose, it can result in death also!

Right now, there is no regulations that suggests a limit on the amount of caffeine that can be present in a energy drink. The study reveals that a typical 12-ounce soft drink contains about 35 milligrams of caffeine, while some energy drinks have as much as 500 milligrams. So, there must be some limit on caffeine content in energy drinks, otherwise these drinks may lead to serious cases of caffeine abuse. And before the authorities put some kind of limits, you must control your own intake.

View of Earth and Moon from Mars

View of Earth and Moon from Mars
Think about yourself standing on planet Mars and looking towards our Earth. If you are lucky enough, you may be able to see something like the picture above. Yes, you will be able to see both Earth and Moon in the same sky. Though it is not possible to get there physically, we can use our advanced spacecrafts to take pictures of views like this.

The above image was taken n October 3, 2007, by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. At the time the image was taken, Earth was 142 million kilometers (88 million miles) from Mars, giving the HiRISE image a scale of 142 kilometers (88 miles) per pixel, an Earth diameter of about 90 pixels and a moon diameter of 24 pixels. The phase angle is 98 degrees, which means that less than half of the disk of the Earth and the disk of the moon have direct illumination.

Large Hadron Collider Stopped until 2009

The World's Biggest Physics experiment will be on hold until April next year. Officials at the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced this on Tuesday, after unexpected helium leak into sector 3-4 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) because of a faulty electrical connection.

Now experts will inspect the sector by bringing it to room temperature and opening up the magnets. This will take about three to four weeks. Then, CERN’s obligatory winter maintenance period will force it to restart in early spring of 2009. Till, then no show in LHC!

Earlier this month CERN had successful tested the LHC by sending a beam of protons clockwise through a 17 mile ring making up the system. The next steps in the experiment were to send the proton beam counter-clockwise through the LHC, and then eventually send beams in both directions having them collide in an attempt to study new forms of matter that could not be studied in any other existing machine.
