The team of researchers recorded that the level of carbon dioxide in the air has marked a new record compared to 2013. WMO Secretary-General – Michel Jarraud said to the media; « We know without any doubt that our climate is changing and our weather is becoming more extreme due to human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels. »
This clearly states that compared to last year, the release of carbon dioxide in the environment has gradually increased within a span of 30 years. These may be a cause of both; climatic changes and human activities.
This could lead to problems in the atmosphere, resulting in ecological imbalance and major health issues. Michel stated few more words out of concern and said; « Carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere for many hundreds of years and in the ocean for even longer. Past, present and future CO2 emissions will have a cumulative impact on both global warming and ocean acidification. The laws of physics are non-negotiable. »
A major focus and immediate concentration are required, by the government officials, scientists and people overall, to cut down the emissions of CO2 and other related increasing gases in the globe. The time is less and thus, a quick action must be required by the board.
The science and conservation team who keep a check on the bird species, found that the bird population is declining, and needs close concentration for immediate conservation help. The report prepared states the number of birds living and the comparison between the previous years of respective bird species. People can view the report at; www.stateofthebirds.org.
The numeric figure states that there has been a decrease of about 48% of bird species, since 1968. The states who have realized the loss of birds are; New Mexico, Arizona and Utah. These habitat loss may lead to fragmentation, which may pose more human health hazards in the country’s grasslands.
Wayne Clough, a secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, said; “This report highlights the threats that birds face, but it also offers hope for their future if we act together. I am gratified that the Smithsonian contributed to this important effort, which shows that collaboration among agencies and organizations can yield valuable insights into difficult challenges.”
Why is Microsoft interested to buy Minecraft? The sources have tried to get the answer from Microsoft during a press conference, however the company did not respond immediately to the questions. Despite no answer, the reaction to the question revealed many answers.
Microsoft’s decision of buying Minecraft makes good sense. Microsoft’s assets and strong economic stability, has billions of dollars to spend on assets or targets, that is worth buying. By acquiring Minecraft, Microsoft would not just buy a game, but an addiction that has taken away the other attractions from the children’s lives, around the world.
This helps Minecraft in earning a profit of $100 million per year. This has marked as a huge hit in the mobile app world mainly. This guess is similar to the deal with Microsoft and Skype, that happened in 2011.
The officials of Minecraft hope that the work structure and technological development remain the same, even after Microsoft takes over. Microsoft has been successful in acquiring good profitable apps and softwares, but not really that successful to maintain the fan ship, due to its poor service. Let’s hope for the best.
Many parents raise this common concern of their kids being hyperactive, or they aren’t paying attention in their studies. A research team found a solution to this. After a few surveys and observations, it was found that the kids who have a habit of exercising or involve in some physical activity, are more focused in their studies.
Alan Smith – chairperson of MSU’s Department of Kinesiology, shared a few words with the press; « Early studies suggest that physical activity can have a positive effect on children who suffer from ADHD. Although our findings indicated that all participants showed improvements, children with ADHD risk receiving exercise benefited across a broader range of outcomes than those receiving the sedentary activities. »
Despite, the research, the team is yet to come to a concrete conclusion, on the different ways exercise can benefit the children. However, it is always a good thing to let the kids play for a while before they leave for school, as this will utilize their hyper energy, make them happy and confident to go the school.
A recent report states that people who intake pills to control anxiety, depression and sleeplessness, are at a very high risk of Alzheimer’s. The report also mentioned some names of salts and chemicals such as; Ativan (lorazepam), Valium (diazepam), Klonopin (clonazepam) and Xanax (alprazolam), the regular intake of which can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s.
A team of researchers focused on a 6 years data on elder patients, who regularly took the prescribed benzodiazepines, and the team found that about 1800 patients were suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
The study also reveals that those who intake these drugs beyond three months, they have a risk of getting dementia. Also, the study extended by mentioning that the longer the intake of these drugs, the more closer you are to Alzheimer’s.
One of the lead scientists – Sophie Billioti said; « Benzodiazepine utilization is connected with an expanded danger of Alzheimer’s ailment. Ridiculous long haul utilization of these medications ought to be considered as an open wellbeing concern. »
Dr. Eric Karran, the chief of the research also mentioned; « This study demonstrates a clear connection between the utilization of benzodiazepines and Alzheimer’s ailment despite the fact that it’s tricky to know the underlying purpose of the connection. »
