3_ways_to_breathe

Last month science illustrator Eleanor Lutz brought us stunning graphics showing how animals fly.

And now she’s at it again with amazing illustrations showing how different animals breathe.

The fascinating animations show the direction oxygen and carbon dioxide travel in different animals to supply their body with oxygen.

It might be a dog eat dog world but, as these stunning photographs prove, best friends come in all shapes and sizes.

The heartwarming images, taken by a host of photographers from all around the world, show the fluffy, feathered and furry animals finding allies in each other – despite how different they may be.

The bizarre buddies include a Masai giraffe who appears to have found friends in two tiny birds and a welcoming warthog happy to give his comrade, a crow, a piggyback ride.

A Northern sea otter is also pictured relaxing in the water with a Common Goldeneye Drake, while a Persian cat is seen cuddling up on the sofa with a rat.

Elsewhere, a Tasmanian Devil nuzzles its companion, a kangaroo, in Tasmania, Australia, while a Red Deer proves particularly popular with a group of jackdaws.

A Green Sea Turtle also appears to be getting on swimmingly with three Remora fish during a dip in the Red Sea, while a Jack Russell finds a firm friend in a fox cub during a walk in Bedfordshire, England.

 

A vet appointment strikes terror into the bravest pets’ hearts

So pity these misty-eyed dogs and cats, who raised a smile with their attempts to hide or guilt-trip their way out of that dreaded trip.

One huge dog was in a full-blown hug with its owner by the reception desk while another buried its face in a towel.

The images raised amused comparisons to humankind’s fear of the dentist’s drill when they were collated on the image-sharing website Pulptastic.

Who knows if they’re as scared as they look? They’ve done a good job at making us pity them all the same – but it’s still not quite enough to escape the surgery.

An African tribe has a very nice way to punish those who do wrong

An African tribe has a very nice way to punish those who do wrong.When a person does something bad, they brought him to the village center and surrounds the whole tribe.
For two days, members of the tribe will tell that person all the good things she has done so far. The tribe believes that all human beings are on earth are good and we all want security, happiness, love and peace.

Trying to find happiness, we sometimes make a mistake and this community sees the error as a call for help. They unite together for the welfare of the individual, to help him reconnect with his true nature, to help him remember that he is basically good until he remembered his goodness which he has been disconnected.

Portable Generator Runs on Water!!

Posted in 2014 with tags , , , , on October 27, 2014 by theboldcorsicanflame

We have developed a portable water powered generator that creates a large amount of energy to run our portable generators that generate power simply by adding water. Spending money on expensive gasoline is a thing of the past. We have found a way to produce energy by adding clean tap water.

Emergency back-up power for camping, motorhomes to construction sites, GDS Technologies has created a new solution. Our generators are 50% less noisy than regular gasoline generators and can be used indoor becasue it produces NO Fumes and NO Pollution. Save energy, reduce costs and help the environment.

October 23rd 2014: Edge of Space Solar Eclipse

Posted in 2014, astronomy, Galaxy with tags , on October 26, 2014 by theboldcorsicanflame

On Oct. 23rd, just as the New Moon was about to pass in front of the sun, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus launched a helium balloon carrying a Nikon D7000 camera. Their goal: to set the record for high-altitude photography of an eclipse.

During a two-hour flight to the edge of space, the camera captured 11 images of the crescent sun. The final picture, taken just a split second before the balloon exploded, was GPS-tagged with an altitude of 108,900 feet.

Eagle flies over Paris with Sony Action Cam Mini

On September 28th 2014, for the first time ever, a white-tailed eagle flew over the streets of Paris, soaring from the very top of the Eiffel Tower to the Trocadero Gardens. The white-tailed eagle has been extinct in France for over 50 years, and so to celebrate this momentous flight we decided to use a Sony Action Cam Mini to record the whole thing from a breath-taking point-of-view.

The event was a collaboration with non-profit organisation FREEDOM, whose objective is to re-introduce the white-tailed eagle into its natural habitat in the French and Swiss Alps.
