Kings of Camouflage


Cuttlefish are marine animals of the order Sepiida. They belong to the class Cephalopoda, which also includes squid, octopuses, and nautiluses. 'Cuttle' is a reference to their unique internal shell, the cuttlebone; and despite their name, cuttlefish are true mollusks.

Cuttlefish have large, W-shaped pupils, eight arms, and two tentacles furnished with denticulated suckers, with which they secure their prey. They generally range in size from 15 to 25 cm (5.9 to 9.8 in), with the largest species, Sepia apama, reaching 50 cm (20 in) in mantle length and over 10.5 kg (23 lb) in weight.

Forest Elephants - Rumbles in the Jungle (Nature Documentary 2013) - HD

Forest elephants are an elusive subspecies of African elephants and inhabit the densely wooded rainforests of west and central Africa. Their preference for dense forest habitat prohibits traditional counting methods such as visual identification. Their population is usually estimated through "dung counts"—an analysis on the ground of the density and distribution of the feces.

Forest elephants are smaller than savanna elephants, the other African elephant subspecies. Their ears are more oval-shaped ears and their tusks are straighter and point downward (the tusks of savanna elephants curve outwards). There are also differences in the size and shape of the skull and skeleton. Forest elephants are found most commonly in countries with relatively large blocks of dense forest such as Gabon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Cameroon and Central African Republic in central Africa and Côte d'Ivoire, Liberia, and Ghana in west Africa.

History of the World (full documentary) HD

History of the World (full documentary) HD


The history of the world is the history of humanity, beginning with the Paleolithic Era. Distinct from the history of Planet Earth (which includes early geologic history and prehuman biological eras), world history comprises the study of archeological and written records, from ancient times on. Ancient recorded history begins with the invention of writing. However, the roots of civilization reach back to the period before the invention of writing. Prehistory begins in the Paleolithic Era, or "Early Stone Age," which is followed by the Neolithic Era, or New Stone Age, and the Agricultural Revolution (between 8000 and 5000 BCE) in the Fertile Crescent. The Neolithic Revolution marked a change in human history, as humans began the systematic husbandry of plants and animals. Agriculture advanced, and most humans transitioned from a nomadic to a settled lifestyle as farmers in permanent settlements. Nomadism continued in some locations, especially in isolated regions with few domesticable plant species; but the relative security and increased productivity provided by farming allowed human communities to expand into increasingly larger units, fostered by advances in transportation.

Megalodon is regarded as one of the largest and most powerful predators in vertebrate history, and likely had a profound impact on the structure of marine communities. Fossil remains suggest that this giant shark reached a maximum length of 14--18 metres (46--59 ft), and also affirm that it had a cosmopolitan distribution. Scientists suggest that megalodon looked like a stockier version of the great white shark.

Do we really need the chromosome Y ?

Do we really need the chromosome ?


In humans , sex is determined by two chromosomes X and Y. A pair of X gives daughter X and Y a boy. But , while the X carries several hundred genes useful in other compartments of the body that the genital system , the Y- rich is far less . He lost many genes since its appearance in the world of the living , and even if this degeneration seems stopped for about 25 million years , the Y chromosome gives the impression of being curled , concentrated on his " heart of business " , namely to determine the male and manufacture sperm. Hence the question posed some geneticists : How many genes are needed for this double task?

If you believe a U.S. study published by Science on November 21 , the correct answer , at least in mice, is the minimum response : two missions, two genes. The team from the University of Hawaii who wrote this article has used the architect Sry that in utero triggers differentiation of the embryo by directing its gonads during manufacturing towards testicular gene. Simply, these researchers knew it needed add at least another gene because even male appearance , individuals thus obtained would be sterile , sperm production is incomplete home. They therefore have the added Eif2s3y gene in mice , the process unlocks spermatogenesis .

Pandora is the idyllic blue world featured in the movie Avatar. Its location is a real place: Alpha Centauri, the nearest star to our Sun and the most likely destination for our first journey beyond the solar system.

Remarkably, it's anti-matter, the science fiction fuel of choice that could take us there. Normally, it's only created in powerful jets that roar out of black holes. We can now produce small quantities in Earth-bound particle colliders. Will we journey out only to plunder other worlds? Or will we come in peace? The answer may depend on how we see Earth at that time in the distant future.

NOAH'S ARK FOUND in 2010 on Mount Ararat?


A group of explorers from Hong Kong and Turkey believe they've made a discovery of Biblical proportions. The group say they have found the remnants of Noah's Ark, resting at 13,000 feet atop Mount Ararat. Previous ARK expeditions in decades past have also found evidence that suggested Noah's Ark may have come to rest on Ararat. However, until now, video evidence has been scant. Radio carbon dating, the researchers say, indicates this find is 4,800 years old. If true, THIS is the most significant historical discovery in human history.

Mutualism , it is not a history of banking and insurance . In biology, the term refers to a balanced combination between two partners who derive a profit. A win-win agreement , to use an expression of the time. One of the most cited case is that of mycorrhiza , a symbiosis between plant roots and the mycelium of fungi , that is to say their underground network of filaments: the fungus serves as a sort of extension to the roots of plant and brings him water or elements such as phosphorus , while in return, his partner feeds sugar for example. It is also possible that mutualism combines vegetable and animal , as in the case of informative and acacia ants.

The sports room is really ?

The sports room is really ?

Improbable science dares everything and this is why we even recognize it . Nothing can stop it , not even the boundaries of the intimate and the alcove. One remembers , for example, British researcher Giles Brindley who did not hesitate , at a symposium of urology at Las Vegas in 1983, to drop panties to show the public paralyzed the prodigious effect of an injection of papaverine in his own penis, ushering in the era of erection drug . We must not forget either that study in which couples were called upon to analyze the exchange of pubic hair during sex , all to the benefit of forensic science . And now , in an article published in October in the journal PLoS One , a Canadian team just provide the answer to a famous question: sport room is really a (sport) ?

With neutrinos, a new astronomy?

Science magazine announced Friday, November 22 , detections of neutrinos obtained in Antarctica by the IceCube collaboration. We are republishing this occasion chronic Marco Zito had discussed in June the results already presented at a scientific conference.


The peoples of the megaliths, there are several thousands of years, already practiced astronomy , like the great ancient civilizations of China and Egypt . Since these observations have continued and have been a constant source of discoveries about the solar system , our galaxy and the universe. However, these observations were based on the same physical source , electromagnetic waves . It was light at first, then other regions of the spectrum such as radio waves or X-rays
With the observation by the IceCube collaboration neutrinos coming in all probability an astrophysical source , we are entering a new era where the neutrinos are also used to observe the universe. If we consider a very distant source, a photon ( a particle of light) emitted by this source could be absorbed along the way.

Nuclear-Powered USS Enterprise (CVN-65) On Final Voyage - Super Porta-Aviões dos EUA Missão Final

U.S. Army Website: http://www.army.mil/

Enterprise, is scheduled for decommissioning on 1 December 2012 at Norfolk Naval Station, Virginia, with its inactivation scheduled to begin no later than 15 March 2013. The deactivation of the Enterprise will result in a one-time increase of approximately $857.3 million in depot maintenance costs for the U.S. Navy's operation and maintenance budget for Fiscal Year 2013.
Enterprise will be the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier decommissioned. Petitioners and naval enthusiasts have requested the Enterprise be converted into a museum, including a 2009 Internet-based petition. However, while costs of doing so regarding her nuclear reactors has yet to be calculated by the United States Department of Defense, by 2012 they had been deemed too expensive to make such an effort practical. A petition has also been set up for the next carrier (CVN-80) to be named as the ninth USS Enterprise.
Newport News Shipbuilding will deactivate and de-fuel the ship after her decommissioning. The process is scheduled to begin Summer 2013 and be completed in 2015. Once the Navy dismantles and recycles the ship's reactors, there will be very little left to turn into a museum; virtually everything two decks below the hangar bay would have to be cut apart. What remains of Enterprise following 2015 is currently scheduled to be taken to Washington state for scrapping. However, it remains possible the ship's island could be removed and used as a memorial.

Nearly 45 % of voters were broadly supportive . Attempts that have little chance - if any - to achieve because it requires the agreement of the State Parliament and the U.S. Congress. The last time secession , the Maine , which is "separate" from Massachusetts , took place in ... 1820. Whatever. Claim secession is a symbolic approach , a means of pressure to influence local policies.

Doctor Sleep By Stephen King


Synopsis : An epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted readers of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon. King says he wanted to know what happened to Danny Torrance, the boy at the heart of The Shining, after his terrible experience in the Overlook Hotel. The instantly riveting DOCTOR SLEEP picks up the story of the now middle-aged Dan, working at a hospice in rural New Hampshire, and the very special twelve-year old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. On highways across America, a tribe of people called The True Knot travel in search of sustenance. They look harmless - mostly old, lots of polyester, and married to their RVs. But as Dan Torrance knows, and tween Abra Stone learns, The True Knot are quasi-immortal, living off the 'steam' that children with the 'shining' produce when they are slowly tortured to death. Haunted by the inhabitants of the Overlook Hotel where he spent one horrific childhood year, Dan has been drifting for decades, desperate to shed his father's legacy of despair, alcoholism, and violence. Finally, he settles in a New Hampshire town, an AA community that sustains him and a job at a nursing home where his remnant 'shining' power provides the crucial final comfort to the dying. Aided by a prescient cat, he becomes 'Doctor Sleep.' Then Dan meets the evanescent Abra Stone, and it is her spectacular gift, the brightest shining ever seen, that reignites Dan's own demons and summons him to a battle for Abra's soul and survival . . .
