Awesome Discoveries of the Millennium

The 21st century is hardly two decades old yet in this very short time great scientific discoveries and breakthroughs have already been witnessed. Researchers have been busy and the results of their hard have been nothing short of astounding. Thanks to new discoveries and breakthroughs, diseases that have troubled humanity for centuries might soon get a cure. Moreover, some discoveries will help end centuries of doubt and speculation. So, what are the greatest discoveries of the century so far?

Confirmation that Mars might be habitable
Man has always been fascinated by Mars. The planet’s close proximity to earth has certainly played a role in creating this fascination and man has always dreamed of sending an exploration team here.

In 2008, a great discovery was made when NASA sent the Phoenix to Mars with the express purpose of finding out whether water can be found on Mars. It was discovered that Mars actually has iced water and, while Martian climate might not be hospitable to man, the presence of water increases the possibility of it supporting life.

Discovery of a cure for HIV
HIV/AIDS has troubled scientists for decades with the search for a cure being sought without success. A breakthrough came when German doctor, Gero Heutter, succeeded in curing a person who suffered from both HIV and leukemia.

Scientists have always known that there are people who are completely resistant to HIV and have been wondering how that resistance could be transferred to other people. Heutter tried to solve this problem by transplanting the bone marrow of a resistant man to the patient who suffered both HIV and leukemia. The result? Both diseases were cured!

Astounding and groundbreaking as this cure was, it might however not get widespread usage. Before curing the sick person through a bone marrow transplant the doctor had to use radiation and drugs to kill the patient’s immune system and this is what might discourage the use of bone marrow treatment. However, this treatment opens up great doors of opportunity. Scientists have since discovered that rather than transfer bone marrow it is might be possible to transfer the immunity of resistant people to the sick through gene editing and this is what they are currently working on.

There are many other great discoveries that have been made in the millennium including the mapping of the entire human genome in 2003. New discoveries keep the hope alive that we might not be too far away from getting a cure for cancer and HIV.

Hosting an Event

November 23, 2017

The food and drinks you serve at the party needs to be chosen with care by taking into account the people you expect to attend. While catering is crucial, remember that depending on the size of the party and the location chosen, there are plenty of logistical considerations to think about.
How will you take guests to the venue? If guests come using their own transport, will they have adequate parking? If you are inviting guest speakers from other cities or countries have you planned for their local transportation and accommodation?

A branding or re-branding event is meant to send a clear message to your customers. You therefore need to choose a theme for the event and make sure that it is a theme that resonates with your clientele and shows that you are better than the competition. To achieve uniqueness, take time to choose a name for the event and create a logo that will be used together with the name of the event on all the promotional items that you will produce. That logo and name should therefore appear on the stationery as well as on T-shirts and bags used at the event.

A party used for brand building is a great event for any company and the massive nature of such events means that they are best handled by professional party organizers.

Characteristics of a Good Toy Expert

November 20, 2017

With the abundance of toys almost everywhere you look, it might become overwhelming to choose the ideal toy for your child. Your child might also demand a particular toy which appeals to him or her physically. Before making the decision to buy, what features should you look for in a toy?It should have educational value –  A good toy should aid in the child’s learning process. It should therefore engage the child’s imagination. The toy should present challenges to a child and encourage him or her to think and find solutions. For this reason, the huge number of passive toys you see around today (the ones that a child can only watch) would not qualify to be called good toys.  It should have a variety of uses – Good toys can be used in a variety of ways and by children of different age groups. Watching children play, you’ll already have noticed that they have the ability to turn the most unusual objects into toys with different qualities. Toys such as toy cars or animal figures are usually used by children to play varying games and therefore make good toys.  Our very own Toy Expert has years of experience testing them out when he’s not busy building websites.

It should be pleasing to the child and affordable
However educative a toy could be, you can expect it’ll be abandoned if the child does not find it attractive. There are child-friendly colors, shapes and sounds and a toy that can incorporate these will be a hit with your child.

The toy must also be affordable. Affordability is not synonymous with poor quality – in fact, plenty of great toys come at very affordable prices and you should not be tempted to spend unnecessarily much on a toy that could fail to deliver.

It should be safe
Your child’s safety must be taken into consideration when you are choosing a toy. In this regard, you must avoid toys with sharp edges as they are likely to cause injuries. If you are buying the toy for a toddler, make sure it does not contain small parts which the toddler could swallow. Should you be buying stuffed toys, remember that these kinds of toys attract a lot of dirt and, if they are not frequently cleaned, could become germ-spreading agents.

Other toys to be avoided are those that glorify violence. Toys representing violent TV characters should never be purchased – the violent behavior of those characters could be imitated by the children.

Party Planning and Brand Building

November 11, 2017

Planning your Party

Holding a party or some major function is one of the avenues companies use for brand building. Being a very important occasion for the company concerned, a party held for the specific purpose of building a brand or even for re-branding cannot be taken lightly. Unless everything goes well, the company will have failed in its objectives. Moreover, such events are organized at great expense and should they fail to achieve their objectives that will be money down the drain. That is why important functions like this are best left in the hands of professional party organizers.

The date of the party needs to be chosen carefully. For one, you want your party to stand out and you must therefore avoid dates that could have plenty of similar events. In this group are days set aside for religious or national holidays. This is of particular importance when you consider that some of the guests and speakers at your event might fail to attend on a national holiday.

The choice of a venue is also critical. You need a venue that is befitting of your event without costing you too much. Being professionals who organize parties all the time, party organizers will have many options available at any time and will be in a better position to get favorable rates.

Is your Dog Stressed

October 26, 2017

Tell-Tale Signs That Your Dog Is Stressed and How You Could Help
Every dog owner knows that there are a handful of signs that tell you that all is not well. The well-known signs that tell you that your dog is stressed or certainly not comfortable include unnecessary barking and the classical tucked tail. Yet there are many less obvious signs and decoding them could help you help your dog.

A clear sign of stress and one that should make every dog owner concerned is when a dog that was otherwise well behaved suddenly becomes aggressive. Aggression could take many forms – he could start biting away at items in the house or even biting his own body. That’s a warning sign; it might not take too long before he begins biting people including the owner.

For some dogs, stress gets exhibited in the form of unexplained illness. If you suddenly notice that your dog is vomiting, has lost appetite or diarrheas, chances are that he is stressed. When your dog continuously eats and drinks less than you normally feed him, it is time to check with your vet if this is a sign of an illness or is the result of stress or anxiety. You should be particularly concerned when the dog doesn’t just eat and drink less but seems to avoid food and water completely.  Also it’s important to watch your dogs Hygiene the same as humans do.  When it comes to their teeth, you can either take care of this yourself or take them to a clinic says Cheney Dental.

Your dog could also be stressed if he suddenly seems to prefer his own company. If yours is a social dog that previously enjoyed the company of humans and other animals, you should get concerned if he suddenly starts to withdraw. In situations like this, it is possible that your dog has gone through some traumatizing experience that now makes him uncomfortable in the company of animals or people.

Stress should be diagnosed as early as possible because it affects the health of your dog. Moreover, failure to address stress could have far-reaching consequences should the dog bite you, a neighbor or a child.

A dog could get stressed because of lack of exercise and you should help him relax by engaging him in regular exercise. Dogs are also likely to get stressed when they cannot tell the clear rules by which they are supposed to abide. You can save your dog (and yourself) a lot of grief by establishing a routine and sticking to it. Rules that keep changing confuse your dog and could be a major cause of stress.

Global Problems

September 23, 2017

Weather Globally

Science has always been called upon to solve world problems and it seems our world will continue depending on scientific innovations to solve the most pressing problems. While there are major problems to grapple with (such as cures for cancer and HIV/AIDS, malaria, global warming, etc) the world continues to hope that solutions will be found someday. There is reason for optimism. When you consider that small pox was a scourge that claimed millions of lives in the past and that it was eventually eradicated with the development of a vaccine, it is not too much to hope that some of the huge problems that bedevil our world today could equally get eradicated through the power of science. Some ambitious projects – While scientists work hard to seek solutions to some of the most serious problems, the level of funding available for scientific research is hardly ever commensurate with the problems at hand. One of the most ambitious projects currently being carried on is known as the Global Development Lab. This project was initiated by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in April 2014 and its main objective is to end extreme poverty by the year 2030. Through the project, USAID provides funding of $1 billion per year to institutions and organizations that will use technology to achieve the lofty dream. The Lab then brings universities and research institutions together to find technology-driven solutions that will eradicate extreme poverty globally. While the funding might seem colossal, it is important to remember that the problems it is supposed to address are rather monumental. They include problems of food security and water scarcity as well as climate change, among others. The enormity of the task at hand is perhaps best exemplified by the fact that USAID has managed to attract private sector partners including Coca-Cola and Unilever. There are also plenty of private sector players who have been trying to use agricultural innovations to fight extreme poverty. In parts of Asia and Africa where crop yields have continued to deteriorate due to land degradation and lack of guaranteed sources of water, private sector players have been developing drought resistant varieties of grains that not only withstand harsh weather conditions but sometimes also increase the yield.
The world is plagued by a myriad of problems which scientific innovations could help solve. Considering the victories that science has achieved in the past, it’d be reasonable to say that even the current problems are not insurmountable.

The Importance of Science in Early Childhood Education

Why is there widespread indifference to the sciences as people go through the school system? Why do many people find sciences so difficult? Researchers suggest that it all depends on the experiences that we get when we are introduced to science. That the many people who declare that they have no love for science do so because of the unpleasant experiences they had when they first got introduced to the subject. When you consider that science is full of hypotheses and that it requires an inquisitive mind, it is easy to see why this is true. Children are by nature inquisitive. As they explore the world around them, they want to know why the snow falls, why the sun rises in the east and why the sky is blue. Children then are naturally trying to get answers to questions that scientists have already answered or are struggling with. Science therefore complements the curiosity that is natural in kids. When taught by a great teacher, children will therefore learn the subject almost effortlessly.
Science forms a basis for future problem solving – Science teaches the young learners how things are made and why certain phenomena occur. They learn why it rains and how the clothes they wear are made. They learn why there are many people without access to clean water and why global warming is a problem. In a nutshell, science provides the perfect avenue for teaching children about the problems that the world has to grapple with. Knowing the efforts that have to be made to solve the world’s problems makes the young learners know the importance of solving problems, a trait that will prove useful throughout the kids’ lives. Independence of thought – Science lets the young learner know that things are not always the way they seem. They learn that theories have to be proved. A child who gets a sound teaching in science will grow up to become an individual who is independent minded and one not easily swayed by the opinions of others unless there is sound evidence.


Given that science is a mandatory subject in school, and seeing how it fits in so well with the nature of a child, how can parents and educators work to eliminate the apathy that most modern children have towards science? Children will develop a natural love for science if their first encounters with the subject are amazing an unforgettable. Through creative play, an educator can inculcate a love for the subject that will stay with the child through a lifetime.

Vision and Science

April 1, 2016

There have been arguments in science about vision verses blindness. Some people portray things differently when viewing something verses not being able to see at all. Other’s claim the blind can absorb more information not being distracted by seeing. It makes you wonder if you blind folded yourself and then studied for a test would you do better. If someone was to read the lesson to you? How about this example. What if you blacked out all the windows in your house where you could barely see, then listened to a video to study? Or let’s say you took a different path. For instance I just had my windows cleaned, by the way if you’ve never paid for this you should try it once. I use a Spokane Window Cleaning Company called A Pane in the Glass. They’re awesome check them out on Facebook. Anyways, let’s try this experiment. Cover your windows completely with mud, then listen to the study material. Take the test and let me know how you did. Then the second part of the experiment will be to clean the windows letting the most sunlight shine in, and listen to another video before taking the test. To get the best results from this test we need to ensure there aren’t any chemicals in the formula used to clean the windows. I’d suggest learning what they use when cleaning windows or cleaning them yourself.

After you have taken both tests, compare the results. If you test out better when there was little sunshine, then you may want to board up your windows every time you study for an exam. Or I guess you could simply where one of those things people use to sleep during the day. You could also just go into a room with no windows, turn off the light and close the door. Whatever you decide, let me know how the tests go. Come join us for the next meet-up. Next week we are going to talk about how the earth spins.

On a side note does anyone have anything fun planned for the weekend.  We are going to spend Saturday with the kids, then my sister is going to babysit Saturday night.  I’m thinking dinner and a movie sounds good.  Anyone know of what’s playing and good?   Sunday we will go to church in the morning then probably meet sis and the kids for lunch at our favorite brunch.

Role of science in the day to day life


Science and innovation are presumably the most interesting subjects in the public arena. Investigative and mechanical improvements have been wrangled in respect to whether they influence individuals’ ways of life and cause bother. Despite what might be expected, science and innovation has enhanced our lifestyle for the better of humanity. In each of these cases, there are no undesirable changes to individuals’ ways of life. On the off chance that it were not for some, if not all, of these adjustments in our history, we as an economy and country would have come apart. Investigating the past, we can see the majority of the advantageous progressions we have made and how far we have come.

As the years progressed, individuals have begun to live more and their wellbeing is surprising. Cutting edge social insurance assumes praise for this kind of innovation. Blending therapeutic examination with innovation has made incredible results for the future of individuals. Individuals in the public arena need to live more and look great and they can profit by this by taking after the directions of their specialists, instructors, and so on to carry on with a superior way of life.

Better comprehension of the world

When you think about the subjects like material science, science you get more specialized and top to bottom comprehension of the world you live in. It permits you to create logical learning and hypothesis about everything on the planet that you go over. Science venture like assignments constrain you to consider conceivable arrangements that can happen inside of the setting of this world and even past.

Science gains positive and wonderful ground

Science, dissimilar to economy, which goes into sorrow regularly, doesn’t make a negative stride. It is continually advancing towards the more positive and wonderful advancements. It has inhabited discover the cure an excess of sicknesses, raise so much mindfulness and has made unbounded conceivable outcomes for individuals.

Science challenges your cerebrum

The many-sided quality of the subjects constrains your mind to work twice as much as it would by and large. This permits you to be much more astute and savvy, and also dynamic. There are understudies who are regularly irritated and disturbed by the subject of science. In any case, it ought to be clarified that science is the mother of all subjects. It involves the work of rationale and thinking furthermore amalgamates diversion and delight inside of it. Understudies who are taught this subject flee from it in light of the fact that the instructors may be clumsy, yet in the event that watched, science is an extremely fun subject and empowers the understudy to utilize their intellectual competence and mental quality. That is the reason it is said to be an obligatory subject of primary school so understudies can familiarize themselves with the subject at an early age. It challenges the current standards and conventions of the world and offers the understudies to have a positive point of view of the world with a superior some assistance with understanding and learning. A few understudies likewise want to seek after science as the principle subject of specialization in light of their advantage.
