Sky Whale concept is a three-deck aircraft with serious moves

The latest aviation concept from the mind of designer Oscar Viñals, the Sky Whale looks more like something thought up for the Transformers movie franchise than a legitimate aircraft. But all those curves and extra ducts are actually precisely positioned to reduce drag and get this three-deck behemoth off the ground in record time.

The Sky Whale is outfitted with four main engines, two of which are located at its tail. All four of these engines can rotate up to 45 degrees, giving the aircraft a serious boost in lift during take-offs. A unique hybrid turbo-electric engine system would also help provide the oomph needed to get the Sky Whale aloft. Solar cells mounted on the aircraft's roof would power the in-flight electronics, as well as providing a little extra energy to the hybrid engines.

Once airborne, the Sky Whale would be capable of transporting 755 travelers at a time across three separate decks. First class passengers would get the top floor, business the middle floor, and coach would make up the lower level. All passengers would be treated to a quiet, quicker ride, including shorter take-offs and landings when compared to today's aircraft. All told, the Sky Whale would reduce weight, drag, engine noise, fuel consumption, and flight times. If the concept ever actually makes it to production, Viñals even has a space tourism version (Space Whale?) of the Sky Whale waiting in the wings.

Pregnant Snake Prepares For Motherhood By Eating Toxic Toads

Female tiger keelback snakes will actively seek out toxic toads to eat when breeding. They are immune to the poisons and shunt them into their own glands. The toxins may help arm the young before they can defend themselves.

Soft Soap

 The brand Driehoek is a well-known soft soap in The Netherlands.

Soft soap, also called green soap or brown soap, is a soft and gentle soap with a yellowish-brown colour that is mostly used as a household detergent.

Originally soft soap was made of hemp oil. This oil is naturally
coloured greenish, thus making the soap that was made ​​of it, a little bit green. Hemp oil was used because it was a cheap byproduct of the rope-makers.

Nowadays, soft soap is usually made of other cheap vegetable oils, for example soybean oil or turnip oil. The soap is week because the oil is saponified with potassium hydroxide instead of sodium hydroxide, such as hard soap.

Soft soap has the reputation of being a particular good degreaser. It is used, for example,
to get extra contaminated hands (with lubricating oil) clean, but also in removing persistent grease stains from fabrics. However, many modern synthetic surface-active agents have a considerably larger grease dissolving capacity than grease-dissolving soap.

Soft soap is usually not perfumed and has therefore the characteristic own soap fragrance that is not appreciated by everyone, while others are satisfied with the scent, described by them as "old-fashioned scent" and associate this scent with "clean".

Researchers “Copy and Paste” Fear From One Memory to Another

We tend to think of our memories as dependable guides to the past — but the truth is, many studies have found that our memories change over time. Our brains constantly edit our memories to rearrange events and change dialogue; and our emotional memories of events are often colored by the way we feel about those events today.

Now, researchers studying mice have discovered that memories can be broken down into component parts — the emotional part separated from the factual part — and that the emotions associated with a memory can be transferred to a totally different memory.

Is olive skin really referring to a creamy coloured skin tone?

We are told that olive skin refers to people who have a cream coloured skin tone. A skin tone like the pictures of the people below:

The truth is: an olive complexion have always been in reference to black skinned people, with the deepest, darkest hue. There are two types of olives in the world, a black olive and a green olive.  There is no single person on this planet that has the colour of a green olive, but there are people with a jet black olive coloured skin tone. Olive skin means jet black skin. Below are pictures of people who are very dark and a picture of black olives:

If you have seen the pictures, decide for yourself  whether this reference is wrong or not.

China Plans 8,000-Mile High-Speed MagLev Railway Linking Beijing to US East Coast

China is considering a plan to build an 8,000-mile (13,000-km) high-speed magnetic levitation railway from Beijing to the eastern seaboard of the United States.
The state-owned Beijing Times reports the rail line would begin in Beijing and run northeastward through Siberia, Russia before tunneling through the Bering Strait into Alaska and then proceeding in a southeasterly direction across Canada and into the northeastern United States.
The trip would take approximately two days at an average speed of 220 miles per hour (354 km/h), and it would require the digging of a 125-mile (200-km) undersea tunnel to cross the Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska. That’s four times the length of the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France.

How Do Sperm Recognize Eggs? Mechanism Finally Found

It’s the stuff of 3rd-grade sex ed: sperm meets egg to make baby. But, surprisingly, scientists have actually been in the dark about one crucial step: how the two sex cells recognize each other amidst the fluid frenzy in the Fallopian tubes. Now researchers have announced that they’ve found the missing piece of this fertilization puzzle, and that the discovery could lead to individualized fertility treatments and hormone-free birth control.
Back in 2005, researchers found the first half of the the puzzle: a binding protein on the surface of sperm they called Izumol (after a Japanese marriage shrine). In the decade since then, scientists have been searching for Izumol’s counterpart on egg cells. Essentially, they’d found the plug but couldn’t locate the outlet.
Today researchers at Cambridge announced they’ve found that outlet: a receptor protein on the surface of the egg cell. They’ve found it on the eggs of pigs, opossums, mice and even humans.

How Race Is Made (Race is a lie)

Click here for the full content to read.


Race Is A Lie

Indians are being referred as "Caucasians." So are Persians and Arabs. The term Caucasian comes from the Caucasus mountains. This is a perfect example of race as an ideological construct and not as an objective fact.

The early European people were Indo-Europeans as in Indians who travelled to Europe. Indo-European languages are one of the largest language families in the world. Contemporary Indo-European languages include Italic (Latin, Italian, Spanish, Portugese, French, Romanian) German, Greek (and other Hellenic languages) many of the Baltic languages and many, many other extinct or dying languages.

Hitler's term for "white" people, Aryan comes from the people of the Northern India region, or Indo-Aryan.

The deposed Shah of Iran held a lofty title which included: King of the Caucasus. The name for Iran itself comes from Ayran. The moral of this is: race is a lie. There is no such thing as race. Race is an ideological contstruct that varies from locality and points in history.

The Hatred From Whites Towards Blacks Has A Reason

Blacks and Mixed-race people have ruled over the world for a very long time. Even in Europe blacks and mixed-race people were ruling over people (though this fact you won't find in History books), but unfortunately they have done some very evil and mean things in the past against whites: sometimes they were murdered because they were different. This is why hatred begun in whites against blacks: because they were mistreated all the time. Hence the reason they faught themselves free from black people and started to lie about historic facts. From a human standpoint it is quite understandable whites disliked blacks, but now the hatred has come so far to the point of madness, that they have created falsehoods about blacks and other coloured people and used it to teach/indoctrinate themselves and coloured people. Unfortunately their hatres goes so far, that they rather believe they're coming from apes, than that they're from blacks! Freeing yourself from pain and evilness is good, but to continue with evil and lies is a bad, bad thing as well. This is a very good proof that shows that no one is better. We ALL have done bad and evil things.

There is something very interesting in people with albinism. Ethnicities can be often distinguished by their physical appearances. People from African descent are mostly distinguished by their dark skin colour, curly hair, sometimes lips and noses. The same goes for Asian people. But when they are albinos, they suddenly look somewhat caucasoid, despite their typical phenotype. Below are pictures I've ensembled, from (coloured) people who suffer from albinism. In other words: any so called "race" is able to produce white offsprings. If you take a look at Indian albinos and compare them to Europeans, you can immediately see the resemblance between them. It's quite remarkable that white folks show African albinos many times, but hardly ever talk about Indian albinos or albinos from other races. Perhaps because it will show their true identity?
