Home Insync Life Life oi-Denise Baptiste By Denise Baptiste on January 6, 2011 Ever wondered if a fish can be bigger than you? In fact there exists fish which is larger than a human. The largest fish in the world that makes our earth proud is the Arapaima. This largest fish on our planet is found in the Amazon river where it is used by the locals as their staple food since it contains rich proteins and minerals and due to the increase of fishing occupation in the Amazon river, the Arapaima is slowly becoming extinct. The story of the largest fish in the world, the Arapaima, comes with a great history where the Amazon locals believe that Pirarucu, the son of an Amazon chief was struck by Gods and he was later transformed to become the Arapaima and till today the locals of the Amazon River believe that Pirarucu is the fish. This fish is also well known as, 'Paiche'. According to science, it is said that this largest fish in the world existed at the time when dinosaurs … [Read more...] about Largest Fish In World Is The Arapaima

Home Home n garden Pet care Pet Care oi-Staff on February 18, 2010 A team of scientists have discovered a diversity of corals harboring unusual species of symbiotic algae in the warm waters of the Andaman Sea in the northeastern Indian Ocean. This discovery made by researchers from Penn State University and international collaborators, is surprising because generally algae can't survive in warm waters and the water here is also murky sometimes. The tidal flux is also so great here that many of the corals can spend hours out of water, exposed to the harsh sun and dry air. But they survived it all. The discovery was made by researchers from Penn State University and their international collaborators. The team"s leader, Penn State Assistant Professor of Biology, Todd LaJeunesse,says, “The existence of so many novel coral symbioses thriving in a place that is too warm for most corals gives us hope that coral reefs and the ecosystems they support may persist — at … [Read more...] about Coral Algae May Suvive Global Warming
Home Relationship Relationship oi-Staff By Super Admin on November 19, 2010 Women do not like men to give them any tips on how to look after their body, especially when it comes to loosing weight. Women tend to get furious when men talk about the weighing scale. It is just normal for any woman to flare up at this thought. In an Australian study, it is revealed that a dietary advice by a man had 'little" impact on women, which is true as women give a deaf ear. According to the research which was conducted by the Australian National University, it showed that women looked at their own views on weight, watching on eatables that are good or bad. Tegan Cruwys said that, "We found that the women who watched the videos with the woman speaking were far more persuaded by the message."It is also proved that about 40 percent of women who watched one healthy eating message delivered by a woman clicked on a computer link to find out more information, compared to just eight percent who … [Read more...] about Women Weight Issues And Men
Home Insync Pulse Pulse oi-Staff By Staff on July 21, 2009 A new research, based on the longest experiment of its type, has determined that the ocean current shut down may take place more slowly and gradually than previously suggested. The research,which run on a 'general circulation model' that simulated the Earth's climate for 21,000 years back to the height of the last Ice Age, shows that major changes in these important s can occur, but they may take place more slowly and gradually. The newest findings, however, are consistent with other recent studies that are moving away from the theory of an abrupt 'tipping point' that might cause dramatic atmospheric temperature and ocean circulation changes in as little as 50 years. "Research is now indicating that this phenomenon may happen, but probably not as a sudden threshold we're crossing," said Peter Clark, a professor of geosciences at Oregon State University. He adds: "For those who have been concerned about extremely … [Read more...] about A Study In ‘s’
Home Insync Pulse Pulse oi-Priya Devi By Priya Devi on May 3, 2010 Did you know that cats, dogs, parrots and even fish are right or left handed? Surprised, aren't you? That's what a new study by Canadian researchers say. Researchers from the Queen's University examined 42 pet cats for several weeks to come up with their conclusion. "Male and female cats differ in their behavioural patterns, for example hunting styles and parental care, and it is possible that these place different demands on motor functioning," said one of the researchers. The female cats are more likely to be "right-handed" while toms prefer using their left paw. Dogs too have the same preference. Parrots also have a dominant foot to pick up food, while toads are usually right-handed.It can be possible for birds or the four legged animals to use their one paw more that the other, but you may be wondering that how can a fish be right or left handed? The researchers also pointed out that fish tend to veer … [Read more...] about Is Your Dog Right-Handed?
