global ice age
According to scientists, previous ice ages have had a significant role in shaping the landscape, the evolution of mankind as well as other organisms. Five major glaciation periods have been studied and documented. Evidence gathered so far indicate that humans successfully adapted and emerged as the dominant organism in the last major glacial period. Others were not that lucky....
dough can learn
Scientifically living objects can be taught and adapt to new things. As sad as it is, pain is one of the most efficient learning receptors in history. Children were often given corporal punishment as a way to show them right and wrong in many parts of the world. One system in training dogs and other animals, though often illegal, is...
fruit into alcohol
Homebrewing alcohol can be fun and easier on the checkbook than a case of craft beer or cider, but for what it saves in cash, it can drain in time and effort. Alchema aims to simplify the process with the help of a user-friendly smart cider homebrewer and an app that provides clear instructions, recipes, and tips for creating your...
earth's gravity
There are things humans will never know. Questions so complex and hypothetical that the answers are more difficult to find than an honest man on a used car lot. What is the sound of one hand clapping? Why can there not be a low-fat chocolate brownie that actually tastes good? How can a gluten-free cake even exist? Who would...
We've come up with easier ways to take care of small wounds like cuts or scrapes over the years by using gauze, bandages, and even tourniquets in more dire situations. While these are great techniques, what happens to those of us that find ourselves in more life-threatening situations? What about when applying more gauze simply won't cut it? When...
extinct animals
Numbers don’t lie, and according to research studies, a total of 100 million different species roamed the Earth at any one time. This number includes mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. But the problem lies with how fast the species are disappearing. So how often does a species go extinct? Between 10,000 to 100,000 each year. Some quarters have even narrowed...
radio bursts
The sounds are short lived and rare. For over a decade since the first cosmic sounds were detected, astronomers have been left scratching their pate in an attempt to explain the source of the brief yet powerful radio bursts, or signals, emanating from the cosmos. The explanation of the origin of the signals technically referred to as First Radio Burst has...
led snowboard
The first snowboard built in 1964 by a young surfing enthusiast Sherman Poppen. He bolted two kids’ skis together with a 1.2-meter plastic plank and rode it on the ice. Snowboards have evolved in significant ways since then. They have become a major part of winter sports and a significant tourist attraction to many countries beyond the tropics. Technology in...
sailing stones
Most rocks are boring. Some can be interesting which is why some people collect them. For their interesting textures or colors or what have you. Though when it comes to action, rocks are not exactly known to be powerhouses of fun and joy, unless they are flat and smooth and there happens to be a lake or a pond...
nanotechnology
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are the study and application of minuscule matter and can be used across all sciences, including chemistry, physics, biology and engineering among other scientific fields. The case is then manipulated on a molecular, atomic and supermolecular scale. The dimensions used in this science are Nanometers(0.1-10). To understand just how tiny a Nanometer is, 1 inch has...
