Amazing facts-Dr. Life

Dr. Jeffrey Life is a 73-year-old, who is heavily dependent upon hormonal modifications to look like a 30 year old.

Dr. Life decided to change his life at the age of 60, when he started to take fitness pretty seriously. Until then, he was overweight, a borderline diabetic and stressed-out. It was when he came across a 12-week fitness challenge on Muscle Media Magazine that he decided to make a few changes in his life. So he sent in his before picture as required by the challenge and started to work out big-time. After the 3 months were up, he had lost over 25 pounds and considerably cut-back on body fat. This, however, was not long-lived and at age 64, his body could no longer hold muscle mass and began to shrink. The culprit – a condition known as andropause – involving a steady decline of testosterone levels.

This, of course, along with a strict regimen of exercise (six days a week including hard cardio, heavy weight lifting, martial arts, Pilates, and more) and diet. And the result is plain for all to see.

amazing-facts-dr-life1Testosterone replacement therapies do not come without their own risks, however. It is known to cause an enlarged prostate, and human growth hormone could increase risk of diabetes and cancer. Most doctors believe that the fall in testosterone levels is a normal part of the aging process and must not be tampered with. Top doctors even say that these programs are completely illogical and prey upon people’s desires to wind back the clock.

Amazing facts-Waitomo Glowworm Cave

Waitomo Glowworm Cave (New Zealand): a glowworms’ paradise

The Waitomo Glowworm Cave is a cave on the North Island of New Zealand, known for its population of glowworms, Arachnocampa luminosa. These glowworms spin a nest out of silk on the ceiling of the cave and then hang down. Then, the larva glows to attract prey into its threads, so that the roof of a cave is covered with larva can look remarkably like the heavens at night. A hungry larva glows brighter than one which has just eaten.

amazing-facts-waitomo-cavesA silicon strand is lowered from the ceiling, alongside hundreds of others. Beautiful though these threads are, they have a sinister purpose. To trap its prey it [the cave glow worm] goes fishing with a line of silk. That ghostly blue light is the result of a chemical reaction taking place inside a special capsule in its tail. Insects seem irresistibly drawn towards the source and then get trapped by the sticky lines. Once stuck, there is no escape. Now it’s just a matter of reeling in the line and slowly consuming the catch – alive. By ensnaring the insects that hatch in this cave, these glow worms have solved the biggest challenge that permanent cave dwellers face finding a regular and reliable source of food.

Animal world-Ferret's visit to Hotel

Staff at a Grade I listed Georgian town house hotel in the centre of York welcomed an unusual guest in from the pouring rain - a drenched ferret. The ferret scuttled into the Judges' Lodgings Hotel when the door opened one wet night, reports the Yorkshire Evening Press.

Staff named the ferret Pierre, because they thought he looked French, and they have ' put him up' in a cardboard box in the wine cellar. They say he seems tame - despite nipping a number of workers - and are hoping the ferret's owner comes forward to take him home.

Duty manager Catherine Bell said, 'We' d opened the door to let someone come in, and the ferret scuttled in with them.' He was soaking wet, so I think he' d been outside for at least a couple of hours.'

Assistant manager Julie Smith continued, 'The night porter caught him and put him in the wine cellar, in a crisp box.' We did some research on the internet, and found that ferrets like kitten food. So, We've gone out to buy some. He has bitten some people, but so far he's left me alone.'

Amazing facts-Cave of the Ghost

“Cueva del Fantasma” — Spanish for “Cave of the Ghost” — is so vast that two helicopters can comfortably fly into it and land next to a towering waterfall. A waterfall coming down one wall forms a small pond at the floor.

Funny facts-Edible plate

Chen Liang-erh, 50, an amateur inventor living in Taipei, Taiwan has perfected an edible plate. It is made from wheat grain, and he plans to mass-produce it with other edible crockery including cups, bowls and food containers.

He argues that hungry diners, tempted to lick a plate after a delicious meal, can now go a step further and demolish the whole lot. Sadly, we have learned, the plates have the taste of unsalted popcorn - not exactly an exciting culinary delight.

In his favour, Chen says the crockery can be boiled and will provide a nutritious meal for your pet.

Amazing facts-Steepest street in the World

Baldwin Street in a suburban part of New Zealand's southern city of Dunedin, is considered the world's steepest residential street. It is located in the suburb of North East Valley, 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) northeast of Dunedin's city centre.

amazing-facts-steepest-street1A short straight street a little under 350 metres (1,150 ft) long, Baldwin Street runs east from the valley of the Lindsay Creek up the side of Signal Hill towards Opoho, rising from 30 m (98 ft) above sea level at its junction with North Road to 100 m (330 ft) above sea level at the top, an average slope of slightly more than 1:5. Its lower reaches are only moderately steep, and the surface is asphalt, but the upper reaches of this cul-de-sac are far steeper, and surfaced in concrete (200 m (660 ft) long), for ease of maintenance and for safety in Dunedin's frosty winters. At its maximum, the slope of Baldwin Street is about 1:2.86 (19° or 35%) – that is, for every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation rises by 1 metre.

Amazing facts-Sculpture made from 3500 Phones

Pegasus Sculpture Made From 3500 Phones

The creativity and art have no bound where this time it is a giant sculpture totally made up of smart phones and was brought out in front of the entrance to the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. Now this antique work looked amazing and its surely a hell of work as all the smart phones are connected by the rods and then this whole 19 feet tall and 16 feet wing span structure was made. According to the developers its took them about 720 hours to make it. Chinese manufacturer Huawei commissioned the sculpture and told that if it won’t stand out like it is to be as symbol of developing technology than they would bring back the sculpture and recycle it.

The Sculpture itself looks amazing and lovely catching the attentions of the visitors. It was all made from 3500 smart phones and its very good and motivating for the mobile manufacturers that they have produced a great success in cell phone history.

Disgusting food dishes from around the World-Kumis

Kumis

This is a rather gross drink, consisting in fermented mare milk. Because a female horse’s milk contains more sugars than the fermented cow’s or goat’s milk, kumis has a higher, though still mild, alcohol content. It also has a strong laxative effect.
