A Bird Like A Flight In The Sky

Frigate birds which are known for their 6 foot long wings can stay in the air for a long time. If you have been on airplane, you could definitely have seen one. So let us have a look at this bird’s life which is quite interesting.

These are aquatic birds with a difference. Because their wings are water proof it is not easy for them to rest on the sea. A male bird attracts females by inflating their throats. They are good in stealing food from the other birds. Most of the birds spend their day in hunting food. Their major foods are fish and squid. These birds are mostly found in tropical regions. They have a striking resemblance of pelican. Most of the birds color is black with some having a slight brownish shade. The frigate bird builds their nests in low trees or on the island grounds.

Even though Frigate birds have a unique body and flying ability, these Frigate birds are not able to walk or swim like other birds. The major enemy of this bird is none other than humans!. The other enemies include rats and cats. Female frigate bird lay only a single egg once in a couple of years. The male frigate bird will not stay long with the female frigate bird and the chick

These frigate birds spend most of their time in the sea and because of it the major characteristics are still unclear. These birds can fly at around 12000 meters high, studies say. These are the only birds that directly go to the cloud and stays for a long time without a single wing flap. Their unusual bodies are a blessing to them. This bird beats all the other birds record when it comes to the wing surface area.

Monarchs – A Glimpse Into Their Magical World Before It’s Too Late

tales-of-vesperia-xbox-360-600x300Have you seen how majestic a monarch butterfly looks like? Do you know that these monarchs are great travelers and set a definite pattern every year which astonishes man? If you haven’t seen a monarch butterfly yet, please grab any chance to do so. There are mainly two reasons why you should observe this species. One – They are simply magnificent. Two- you may never see them again.

It is a known and alarming fact that monarch butterflies will no longer be seen anywhere on earth. They are facing a rapid decline in population and are nearing extinction. Butterfly lovers all over are worried and are trying their best to find sources to preserve this rare species.

The travel pattern of monarch butterflies is really wonderful. They migrate from Mexico to Canada e very spring. The whole group sets off to Mexico only to return in the fall. It takes four generations of these butterflies to make this trip to and fro. How they make this journey every year without fail is beyond scientific explanations. For now we can call it another secret mystery of Mother Nature.

Why are these butterflies facing danger now? One important factor is the decrease in Milkweed
Plants. Scientists have no solid proof for this fact; however milkweed is the main source of nutrition for monarch caterpillars. Farmers find this plant to be a nuisance and most of them destroy it. Pesticides are used in large volumes for this purpose. In the absence of this plant, the monarch species find it hard to survive. Other factors like deforestation, pollution, climatic changes, global warming etc add to the distressful situation.

Many people are now trying to save this population by replanting milkweed plants wherever they can. If most people try to do this, probably we can save these wonderful creatures for the future generations also to see and love.

Welcome To Your First Virtual Meal

07camera_ca2-articlelargeIt’s a virtual world .This is what we hear many times a day. Yes, it’s true. We have virtual games, virtual classes, virtual jobs, virtual sports and what not. The latest addition to the virtual family has left me completely speechless. Have you heard of a virtual restaurant? No, I am not joking. This concept has also come into existence.

The Project Nourished designed by super brain Jinsoo An has turned this into reality. You can actually consume whatever you want without gaining any pounds. For example if you feel like eating sushi, they will give you cubes of agar- agar molded as rice. Then you will have to wear a pair of oculus rift glasses. A head mounted display begins where you can actually see Sushi and smell it.

Your brain is tricked into believing you are actually eating sushi! You are under the illusion that you are having your favorite dish. The smells enhance this sensation. The result when you actually chew into the food may not be as great as the original dish would taste, however you can give the team more time to experiment with this too.

Jinsoo, your idea is a God send dream to people like me who have always wanted to shed weight and eat healthy (and keep failing at this attempt).
