What matters is the search for knowledge, not confined to ancient Hindu scriptures but wherever it is found in the worldThe awarding of the Nobel Prize to three poverty researchers has made waves in India, largely because Abhijit V. Banerjee happens to be of Indian origin. Esther Duflo one of the most riveting speakers I have heard has received some media attention as his wife. Michael Kremer, the third economist who shared the prize, has been ignored. Sendhil Mullainathan did not even get a share of the prize, although he has been an important member of the team that developed the technology of randomized control trials as an instrument of research.
Ayurveda is an alternative healing technique that goes back to ancient times. It is an ancient traditional Indian medicine system that believes that the human body is made up of the five elements earth, water, fire, air and space energies. According to it, each living being have 3 types of energies in them vata, pitta and kapha. Any disturbances in these energies cause diseases. According to this holistic method of healing, diabetes is the result of imbalance in kapha energy, which contains the earth and water elements. Diabetes happens because of a decrease in the digestive fire. It prevents the body from metabolising energy and eliminating toxins.A study at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, says that Ayurveda can successfully treat diabetes. Researchers from this university conducted a controlled clinical trial where participants had to undergo a six day Ayurvedic based wellness programme. This programme included a vegetarian diet, meditation, yoga and massages. All participants reported measurable decreases in a set of blood based metabolites associated with inflammation, cardiovascular disease risk and cholesterol regulation . This study is published in Scientific Reports.
Something strange is sailing toward us. Something small and cold and extraordinarily fast. No one knows where it came from, or where it is going. But it''s not from around here. This is an interstellar comet an ancient ball of ice and gas and dust, formed on the frozen outskirts of a distant star, which some lucky quirk of gravity has tossed into our path. To astronomers, the comet is a care package from the cosmos a piece of a place they will never be able to visit, a key to all the worlds they cannot directly observe.
There is no denying that the relationship between art and sexual imagery is as longstanding as the history of art itself. Nude figures in varying degrees of censorship have been consistently depicted even as styles and tastes have changed throughout the centuries. Even ancient Rome saw the production of erotic sculptures, frescoes, and mosaics. How these forms of art became defined as art and not porn is the underlying question in the current exhibition The Pleasure Principle at Maccarone in Los Angeles. Featuring well known female artists, including Lynda Benglis, Louise Bourgeois, Tracey Emin, and Laurie Simmons the exhibition that is fully funded by the porn giant, Pornhub, blurs the boundaries between art and porn by recontextualizing porn in the setting of an art gallery.The obvious question when considering Pornhub s collaboration with Maccarone is, why? Why would Pornhub spend the money to commission a large scale art exhibition? And why would Maccarone agree to it? The answer for Pornhub seems to be related to a larger cultural program that the company has been promoting in recent years: I think it s important to get involved culturally, Pornhub vice president Corey Price explained to Bloomberg. But we don t just randomly sponsor art things we want it to be part of the conversation of sex and sexuality in the art space. Pornhub certainly has been taking their cultural agenda seriously. There s no denying that there is a conversation between art and porn, so why shouldn t Pornhub be a part of that? Beyond Maccarone, Pornhub has also partnered with the Museum of Sex in New York on pop up gift shops, as well as a major exhibition of erotic film from the early 1900s to the 1960s that explores the origins of the porn industry.

NASA ''s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has kept a watchful eye on the Red Planet for the last 13 years. Launched in 2005, the high tech space probe first entered orbit around Mars in August 2006. Since then, the orbiter has been photographing Mars ' intricate valleys, ancient waterways and impact craters.The spacecraft ''s highly detailed photos are snapped by the MRO ''s HiRISE camera.
UFO hunter Scott Waring took to his etdatabase.com blog to speculate about the ”hovering alien orb ” spotted in the background of a Mars Curiosity Rover photo. He said: ”This is alien technology hovering over the surface. ” ”You can see this alien object is creating a shadow beneath it. ”Waring attempts to addresses an obvious failure with his alien evidence theory ndash; that the shadow is of a different shape to the orb.
NASA #039;s Curiosity Mars Rover may have found evidence of an ancient oasis on the Red Planet, within the 150 km wide Gale crater. The discovery, published in the Nature Geoscience journal, throws up questions about whether Mars could have sustained microbial life in the past, say the scientists who made the discovery.
In 2012 NASA's Curiosity rover went to Mars to explore Gale Crater. Gale Crater is the ancient remnant of a massive impact. Sediment carried by water and wind filled in the crater floor, layer by layer.After the sediment hardened, wind carved the layered rock into the towering Mount Sharp, which Curiosity is climbing today.
Two physicists think that we should check to see if there's an ancient, grapefruit size black hole hiding out in our solar system. And that tiny, heavy object might in fact take the place of a theoretical planet that some researchers think might be tugging on other objects in our solar system, the so called Planet 9.
Using the Subaru, Keck and Gemini Telescopes, an international team of astronomers has discovered a collection of 12 galaxies that existed about 13.0 billion years ago. This is the earliest protocluster ever found. One of the 12 galaxies is a giant object, known as Himiko, which was discovered a decade ago by the Subaru Telescope and named for a mythological queen in ancient Japan. This discovery suggests that large structures such as protoclusters already existed when the universe was only about 800 million years old, 6 percent of its present age.In the present universe, galaxy clusters can contain hundreds of members, but how these clusters form is a big question in astronomy. To understand the formation of clusters, astronomers search for possible progenitors in the ancient universe. A protocluster is a dense system of dozens of galaxies in the early universe, growing into a cluster.
Meanwhile, dogs do not suffer from this problem and are hailed for their excitement at seeing their owners. However, a new study covered in Popular Science showed that despite appearances, cats love their humans just as much as dogs do and maybe even more, even if they don;t show it much.That is not to say that cats haven 't had their moments in popularity. Cats have sailed with Vikings, lived in medieval monasteries, and were hailed by Ancient Egyptians. Though more people have dogs than cats in the United States, there are more cats total that are owned as pets.
