This is interesting. After Reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again. Containing three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber, a banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

In a groundbreaking new study that’s sure to send health-conscious guys running to the produce market, tomatoes now are linked to lower stroke risk in men. Researchers examining the blood levels of more than 1,000 Finnish men ages 46 to 65, found that those whose blood contained the highest levels of lycopene had 55 percent less chance of suffering a stroke. Those results, published in the October 8 issue of the journal Neurology, held true even after adjusting for the men’s age, health and other risk factors such as smoking and obesity. Because stroke is the third leading cause of death in this country, the fact that simply adding more tomatoes to your diet can add years to their life is big news for men in their middle years. Effects of lycopene on women’s stroke risk was not studied.

Torture has been defined in several ways and depending on the context in which this term is being used its definition ought to change. In any setting or form torture is considered to be an outright violation of human rights and is prohibited worldwide. Torture is used in domestic settings, law enforcing scenarios, and in international scenarios that include war or investigation. We will be discussing 5 banned torture methods but will keep in view that torture in all its forms is prohibited by virtue of human rights or by law in some countries.

The Ark project was designed by Russian firm Remistudio with the assistance of the International Union of Architects’ program Architecture for Disasters Relief. The dome-shaped hotel is constructed with wooden arches, steel cables and a “self-cleaning” plastic layer instead of glass. The slinky-like Ark hotel can be adapted to suit both land and water. It is built to stay afloat in the event of floods or rising seas. The 14,000 square metre shell-like construction of arches and cables distributes the weight evenly, meaning it can withstand earthquakes. Daylight is filtered through to internal rooms due to the hotel’s see-through structure, reducing the need for lighting.
A new hover vehicle resurrected from abandoned 1960′s design plans has sparked a rash of comparisons to the hover bikes famously seen zipping through the forest in Star Wars film Return of the Jedi (see below for picture). The original design was abandoned nearly half a century ago due to stability issues and problems with rollover which could not be fixed at the time. But California based tech firm Aerofex have now fixed these problems with an innovative new control system.

A mud volcano may be the result of a piercement structure created by a pressurized mud diapir which breaches the Earth's surface or ocean bottom. Their temperatures may be as low as the freezing point of the ejected materials, particularly when venting is associated with the creation of hydrocarbon clathrate hydrate deposits. Mud volcanoes are often associated with petroleum deposits and tectonic subduction zones and orogenic belts; hydrocarbon gases are often erupted. They are also often associated with lava volcanoes; in the case of such close proximity, mud volcanoes emit incombustible gases including helium, whereas lone mud volcanoes are more likely to emit methane.
Approximately 1,100 mud volcanoes have been identified on land and in shallow water. It has been estimated that well over 10,000 may exist on continental slopes and abyssal plains.
When it comes to fast, easy, and unhealthy food, you will generally find that college students have a wealth of knowledge/experience in said area. Most of the time they’re…
* Too strapped for time to make something healthy
* Too broke to buy real food
* Too lazy for anything involving more than a microwave
What you’re left with is a specific selection of foods that we’ve all probably had to live off of at least once.
