Did You Know – 08/14/2018


1. Half the atoms inside your body came from across the universe.

They found that in galaxies with 100 billion stars or more, the galactic winds actually ferried in about 50 per cent of the matter present today.
Jessica Werk at the University of Washington in Seattle – Werk says tracking the flow of matter from the origin of the universe to present day, and understanding where the atoms that make up the air we breathe and water we drink is one of the fundamental problems in astrophysics. “It’s one of the holy grails of extra galactic cosmology,” she says. “Now, we’ve found that half these atoms come from outside our galaxy.”

Faucher-Giguère and Anglés-Alcázar Northwestern University in Illinois  found that for larger galaxies like our own, this intergalactic Gulf Stream is the primary contributor to their growth, allowing them to snatch away matter from their smaller counterparts.

2. Back when people burnt coal to heat their homes they rid the soot off their walls by rolling dough across the walls.

The Story goes: Kutol, a Cincinnati based soap company, was about to go under in the late 1920s.  Cleo McVicker, just 21 years old. 1933 when Cleo was at a meeting with Kroger grocery store representatives when they asked him if he made wallpaper cleaner. In those days coal was used for heating ones home as wood was less efficient. The down side of coal was the soot that it left on the walls and wallpaper.

Cleo boldly told them he could supply them with such a cleaner having no idea what they were going to do as at that time things had become desperate financially. Kroger subsequently ordered 15,000 cases of wallpaper cleaner from Kutol with a $5,000 penalty (about $90,000 today) if Kutol didn’t deliver on time.

Noah McVicker his brother then figured out that dough was the solution and that kept the company afloat till after WWII. Sales then started to decrease as coal was no long the main use for heating and the company once again was facing financial ruin.

Hence Play doh!

5. ” Tsunami Stones” are an ancient warning written on Stone.  – Some over 600 years old that lie on the northeast coast of Japan.

In 1933 after a tsunami the residents of Aneyoshi moved uphill and placed a stone that read “Do not build your homes below this stone. In 2011 another tsunami of magnitude occurred and the entire village survived

Reach For Your Feet and Massage Every night

I found this article on a website called http://news2matters.com/4996395-16011312.

Often when we are massaging our feet we don’t realize what organs we are stimulating and I thought this was a good diagram to show you where the pressure points are. Often if you are not feeling the best massaging these pressure points will give you an idea of what is happening in your body. Usually the area that is the problem will show up as a tender spot on your foot.

Try it and see and you will probably be impressed with the result as well as having a good night sleep.

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness. Massage can be applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearm, feet, or a massage device.
We can easily say that one of the best massages is the feet massage. Some parts of our feet are connected with different organs in the human body. Make sure you massage your feet every night before going to bed, and we guarantee you that you will feel these positive effects:

Survive A Crisis – No 2

You Meet A Large Animal Who Is Not looking very Friendly.

(In this case I think I would prefer to be in a sinking car)

 

Escape-a-Bear-600x337

a. “Do not run” This is advice from Tony Nester the director of the Ancient Pathways survival school in Flagstaff, Arizona. What happens is if you run you most likely cause a chase response in an animal that had no plans to attack. Even if it is eyeballing you as a potential meal it prefers prey that is not going to put up a fight.
Spread your arms, shout, and make yourself look large (not to hard for me but I am sure I would be sweating big time) and threatening.
Slowly retreat and do not turn your back on the animal. If you are with a child he or she may look more appetizing so keep between the child and the bear.

b. If all else failsThe animal you are facing may be guarding its territory and not hungry. The plan is the same but be assured the animal will be more aggressive.
If this is not affective and it begins to attack use whatever you can such as a stick, fists, fight back and aim for the snout before he rips your arm off.
