What Will Happen to Your Body When You Die?

I think this is a fantastic idea, Once the soul has left the body you are returning something to the earth, climate and beauty to the world.

  1. For a mere $11.99, you can find out if anyone has ever died in your home. Go to – Diedinhouse.com and it will reveal whether there has ever been any documented deaths at your address by giving you a full report that includes names, dates and causes of death. Also it will let you know if it has been home to meth labs, arson, or murders.

2. If you want to remember someones name – Associate their name with their job. When you first meet them ask them what is their occupation. It gives you something to associate their name with and a better chance of remembering it.

 

3. Orca’s brains have an enlarged limbic node, which deals with emotions and memories. Even taking into account the size difference of a human brain, an orca’s brain contains more of the spindle cells that process empathy and social patterns. This result could be evidence that Killer whales could be more empathetic than we humans. I guess if you meet one in the ocean one would like to think this is true.

 

Alex Stafie, 5, and Wallace Scherer, 92, make sack lunches for the homeless during an activity at Providence Mount St. Vincent home for older adults in West Seattle.

4. At the  Providence Mount St. Vincent in Seattle there is a pre school inside a nursing home.  “We wanted a living, vibrant community; to make sure that this was a place where people came to live, not die,” says Charlene Boyd, an administrator at the center. Bringing children in was a natural solution.

Socializing across generations has also been shown to increase the amount of smiling and conversation among older adults, according to one Japanese study from 2013.

These intergenerational interactions also enhance children’s social and personal development as many of the parents will attest. kids are prone to feel more comfortable around those with disabilities and impairments of all kinds than their peers who lack such experiences.

 

5. Tulips are not native to the Netherlands – Tulips had been cultivated in Turkish gardens for years and there were over a thousand types of tulips by the time Europe discovered the flower.  In the late 16th century tulips were brought to Europe by the Austrian ambassador to Turkey, then known as Constantinople.  From Austria tulips made their way to the Netherlands where the Dutch became leaders in producing prized specimens.

By the 1630’s tulip speculation, or tulipmania, was rampant throughout the Netherlands and both rich and poor were speculating in the tulip trade, similar to the stock market in modern times.  In 1637 the tulip market crashed leaving many Dutch penniless.

Despite the crash the Dutch continued to cultivate these colorful flowers and the Netherlands still remains the chief source for tulip bulbs.

2.What a Gosh Heart is?

tumblr_mxtc6lDIJ41r0lhi8o1_500

They take a pig heart, soak it in an ingredient commonly found in shampoo and wash away the cells until you’re left with a protein scaffold that is to a heart what two-by-four framing is to a house.

Then inject that ghost heart, as it’s called, with hundreds of millions of blood or bone-marrow stem cells from a person who needs a heart transplant, place it in a bioreactor–a box with artificial lungs and tubes that pump oxygen and blood into it–and wait as the ghost heart begins to mature into a new, beating human heart.

Doris Taylor, director of regenerative medicine research at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, has been working on this– first using rat hearts, then pig hearts and human hearts–for years.

The process is called decellularization and it is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place.

This scaffold of connective tissue–called a “ghost organ” for its pale and almost translucent appearance–can then be reseeded with a patient’s own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.

This ghost heart is ready to be injected with a transplant recipient’s stem cells so a new heart–one that won’t be rejected–can be grown.

4. 85% of people use music to reduce their daily emotional stress.

To incorporate music into a busy life, try playing CDs in the car, or put the radio on when in the bath or shower. Take portable music with you when walking the dog, or put the stereo on instead of the TV.

Singing (or shouting) along can also be a great release of tension.  Calming music before bedtime promotes peace and relaxation and helps to induce sleep.

  • Music’s form and structure can bring order and security to disabled and distressed children. It encourages coordination and communication, so improves their quality of life.
  • Listening to music on headphones reduces stress and anxiety in hospital patients before and after surgery.
  • Music can help reduce both the sensation and distress of both chronic pain and postoperative pain.
  • Listening to music can relieve depression and increase self-esteem ratings in elderly people.
  • Making music can reduce burnout and improve mood among nursing students.
  • Music therapy significantly reduces emotional distress and boosts quality of life among adult cancer patients.

Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevisare are parasitic mites that particularly favor the hair follicles of eyebrows and eyelashes and measure a mere fraction of a millimeter long.

1. This is gross but a fact of life

Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevisare are parasitic mites that particularly favor the hair follicles of eyebrows and eyelashes and measure a mere fraction of a millimeter long. They crawl about your face in the dark to mate and then crawl into the pores to lay their eggs and die. Healthy adults have around one or two mites per square centimetre of facial skin, though people with the condition rosacea can have 10 times more. Demodex does not have an anus and therefore cannot get rid of its faeces. Instead, their abdomen gets bigger and bigger, and when the mite dies it decomposes and releases its faeces all at once into the pore.

About 270 people have undergone cryopreservation procedures as of 2013.

3. Did you know you could go out with a bang. This sounds fantastic to me I would love it. “Heavens above Fireworks” is a company that turns your ashes into a firework after you die and you literally can be lit up and go out with a bang. A great way to say good-bye

Sleep Or Die?

I know it sounds a little over the top but the Statistics are quite surprising. I think we all know if we “Burn the candle at both ends” our tempers fray and we don’t feel so good in time. Our bodies become stressed.
So when you can, get a good nights sleep.
