  • Scientific Miracles of the Quran, 8 - The Reduction of the Earth's Surface from its outlying borders

    According to the information of Nasa, while the Earth's equatorial radius is 6378,5 km, its polar radius is 6357 km. This means a difference of % 0,3. Here, there is an indication of this flattening at poles with the following statements of the Qur'an; "We reduce the land from its outlying borders" and "We diminish the land from its outlying borders". Besides, we also point out to the following issue that there is a statement in the verse as "we gradually reduce" instead of "we reduced" For more detailed information, you can visit the websites below. www.questionsonislam.com www.windowsofislam.com www.basicsofbelief.com

Don't miss new Big Think videos! Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Enzymes like Telomerase and Resveratrol, though not the Fountain of Youth unto themselves, offer tantalizing clues to how we might someday soon unravel the aging process. Question: Do you think the enzyme Telomerase could be used to reverse the aging process in our lifetime? (Submitted by Paul Cellura) Michio Kaku: Paul, Telomerase hit the headlines; however, I think we have to put it into perspective. It is not the fountain of youth; however, it is a significant breakthrough. We have to put it into a much larger perspective. First of all, we know that DNA is sort of like a shoelace. It has plastic tips at the end. Every time a cell reproduces, the tips get shorter and shorter and shorter until finally they fray. And you know that your shoelace, without the plastic tips will simply fall apart. That's what happens inside a cell. A cell, for example, your skin cell, will divide about 60 times, that's called a Hayflick Limit. Then the cell goes into senescence and eventually dies. So in some sense, every cell has a biological clock. It is doomed to die after about 60 reproductions. However, Telomerase can eliminate some of the contraction of the chromosomes and the chromosomes can maintain their length. So at first you may say, "ah-ha! We can now defeat the biological clock." But not so fast, first of all, cancer cells also use Telomerase. Cancer cells are immortal. Cancer cells are immortal and that's precisely why they kill you. Why are cancer cells so dangerous? Because they are immortal. They grow and they grow and they grow until they take over huge chunks of your body, meaning that your bodily functions cannot be performed and you die. So we have to make sure that when you hit ordinary cells with Telomerase that you don't also trigger cancer in the process. Now, also you have to realize that genes are also very essential for the aging process. It turns out that we know what aging is. Aging is the buildup of error. That's all aging is. The build up of genetic and cellular error. And cells begin to age; they begin to get sluggish because genetic mistakes start to build up. Now cells; however, have a repair mechanism. They can repair damage to their cells; otherwise we would all basically rot very soon after birth. However, even the repair mechanisms eventually get gummed up and then the cell really starts to get old as a consequence. So then the question is, can you accelerate cell repair? That is another branch of gerontology which is being looked at using genes and using chemicals to accelerate the repair mechanisms. For example, if I take any organism on the planet Earth from yeast cells to spiders, insects, rabbits, dogs, and even monkeys now. And I reduce their caloric intake by 30%, they live 30% longer. In fact the only organism which has not yet been deliberately tested by scientists are homo sapiens. All the other species obey this basic rule. You starve them to death, they live longer. This is independent of Telomerase. This is a function of the wear and tear that we have on the cells. And this is the only known way of actually deliberately extending the lifespan of any organisms almost at will. Now, what we want is a genetic way of mimicking this mechanism without having to starve yourself because how many people do you know would be willing to starve themselves in order to live 30% longer? Not too many. So then the question is, are there genes that control this process. And the answer is apparently, yes. There's something called the Sirtuin genes, Sir2 being the most prominent of them. They in turn stimulate certain enzymes, among them Resveratrol, which is found in red wine, for example. So this does not mean that drinking red wine or taking Telomerase is the fountain of youth. I don't think that anyone has the fountain of youth yet. What I am saying is, we are now finding pieces of the fountain of youth, tantalizing clues that mean that perhaps in the coming decades, we might be able to actually unravel the aging process. We don't have it yet. Don't go out to the drug store and stock up on these kinds of chemicals and enzymes thinking you're going to live forever. However it is conceivable that in the coming decades we'll come very close to finding it.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. It is now well known that sea ice in the Arctic has changed in both extent and thickness over the past several decades. In fact the change in sea ice is seen as one of the key global climate variables confirming model estimates of global scale warming of our planet through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) process. Extensive investigations at the leading edge of Arctic System Science have recently uncovered a number of surprises, many somewhat counterintuitive, each having significant consequences in the Arctic and through teleconnections to the rest of our planet. In this talk I will review the rate and magnitude of change in sea ice, put this into the context of our understanding of the ‘natural variability’ in sea ice over the past several thousand years. I will then review seven surprising impacts of this change: 1) increasing coverage of young ice significantly changes atmospheric chemistry; 2) more snow both preserves and destroys ice; 3) Polar bear habitat can actually improve in some areas while deteriorating in others; 4) match-mismatch timing in the marine ecosystem increases vulnerability; 5) uncertainty as to whether the Arctic ocean will increase or decrease in overall productivity is a key unknown; 6) evidence that ice hazards are actually increasing while the world marshals to increase development of Arctic resources; and 7) evidence that our recent cold winters are actually linked to our warming Arctic. Dr. Barber obtained his Bachelors and Masters from the University of Manitoba, and his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo, Ontario. He was appointed to a faculty position at the University of Manitoba in 1993 and received a Canada Research Chair in Arctic System Science in 2002. He is currently Associate Dean (Research), CHR Faculty of Environment, Earth and Resources. Dr. Barber has extensive experience in the examination of the Arctic marine environment as a ‘system’, and the effect climate change has on this system. Dr. Barber has published over 200 articles in the peer-reviewed literature pertaining to sea ice, climate change and physical-biological coupling in the Arctic marine system. He led the largest International Polar Year project in the world, known as the Circumpolar Flaw Lead system study. He is recognized internationally through scientific leadership in large network programs such as NOW, CASES, ArcticNet, and the Canadian Research Icebreaker (Amundsen), as an invited member of several Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council national committees, international committees and invitations to national and international science meetings. Dr. Barber was instrumental in a national competition to bring a Canada Excellence Research Chair (CERC) to the University of Manitoba in the field of Arctic Geomicrobiology and Climate Change. As a member of the Centre for Earth Observation Science he leads a polar marine science group of over 100 people About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

Understand carbs, insulin, glucose, fructose, sugar, simple and complex carbs, and how you can use this knowledge of your body maintaining homeostasis to minimise hunger, cravings, and fatigue while also getting the best stable energy and motivation to workout and exercise. More on my website. www.GeorgeHealth.com PERSONAL ONLINE NUTRITION AND FITNESS PROGRAMS There are two indisputable facts regarding dietary treatment of obesity. The first is that virtually all programs appear to be able to demonstrate moderate success in promoting at least some short-term weight loss. The second is that there is virtually no evidence that clinically significant weight loss can be maintained over the long-term by the vast majority of people. The overwhelming majority of people regain the weight that they have lost over the long-term. However fat loss can be achieved when you take the correct attitude, approach and action steps. See my website for more information on how you can achieve this yourself.

Fast forward to today and how to lose belly fat fast is still one of the more commonly searched health and fitness topics of all time. That’s why today I’m going to show you exactly how to lose that stubborn stomach fat and start carving that sexy stomach. And it’s all backed by science. There are 5 main causes to a pesky belly bulge. #1. Overeating Kind of obvious, here but it needs to be said. The main culprit of belly fat is consuming too many calories leading to weight gain and stomach fat. And the main way to lose the belly fat is reducing fat all across the entire body. #2. Hormone Imbalances, Specifically Cortisol High amounts of the stress hormone cortisol have been linked to higher abdominal fat distribution. Other hormonal issues have also been linked with slow weight loss and difficulty for the body to properly uptake nutrients. So it’s just as important to get your hormones in check as it is to make sure your diet is aligned. #3. Bloating Missed by a lot of health professionals, bloating certainly doesn’t help with belly fat. This is usually caused by high sodium intake, excessive carbohydrate intake, and can even be a sign of food intolerance. #4. Age The older you get, the harder the process of losing belly fat will become. You can get a flat stomach at any age, it will just take more effort when you are 50 than when you are 20. #5. Alcohol Intake Studies have shown that certain types of alcohol are directly correlated with stubborn belly fat. And if your overall goal is to lose fat, cutting down on alcohol intake is a simple solution that really works. Here’s how to lose belly fat, actually backed by science!! 1. Chow Down on fiber rich foods Studies have shown there is a direct relation between fiber intake and reduction of belly fat The type of fiber you want to focus on is viscous fiber.  These are the types of fibers that bind to water and slow down the digestion process. It can be found in beans, vegetables, and whole fruits 2. Cut out the two S’s – Sugar and Salt Sugar is turned into fructose in the body which gets stored as visceral fat. There are also plenty of studies that show how sugar increases belly fat, causes cravings, and is ultimately TERRIBLE for the body. Cut it out of your diet. There’s also similar problem with salt. The high salt intake in an average diet causes stored water weight and lots of belly bloat. Reducing salt intake to between 1500mg and 2000mg per day will usually result in an immediate reduction in belly bloat. 3. Drink Green Tea or Coffee Before Workouts Studies have shown that adding in caffeine before workouts -Increases work output -Helps burn more calories -Shows a greater reduction in visceral fat The best two healthy sources for caffeine are black coffee or green tea. Drink 30 minutes before exercise for more gainz and less belly fat! 4. Add Apple Cider Vinegar into The Diet Apple cider vinegar is uniquely effective for weight loss and eliminating stomach fat. Its ability to regulate blood sugar and curb appetite is also awesome for overall health. Studies have also shown that those who consume 1 -2 tablespoons daily have a significant decrease in visceral fat than those who do not (study). You can watch our video about it here if you’d like… 5. Regulate your sleep patterns. For every hour of sleep the body gets that is fewer than 8, the chances of visceral fat increase. If you’re only getting in 6 hours a night, you’ll likely have a 22% increase in the gain of visceral fat (study). There’s a reason lack of sleep is associated with cravings, high cortisol levels, poor skin, and other health issues. Get 8 hours of high quality sleep every night. 6. Eat More of These Fats A study done by Swedish scientists showed a strange result. Those who ate lots of polyunsaturated fats lost more visceral fat, lost more weight, and gained more lean muscle than those that ate other fats (study). Polyunsaturated fats can be found in fish, nuts, and seeds Studies Used: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24550191 https://sleepfoundation.org/sleep-news/sleep-linked-gains-abdominal-fat http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19661687 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22190023 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19640952 http://jn.nutrition.org/content/130/2/272S.full http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15614200 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2912010 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7408399

Coca Cola vs Coca Cola Zero - Sugar Experiment - Science Experiments with Coca-Cola by Home Science In the experiment, a regular soda was first tested in high heat. Boiling the beverage will take away the water from the regular version. After 20 minutes of stirring and letting the soda boil in the nonstick pan, the sugar found in the product caramelized, leaving a ton of sugar on the pan. Coca Cola and Milk Experiment: http://youtu.be/aKPoQYevoLs Coca Cola and Pool Chlorine: http://youtu.be/wPxjKRwHOiQ After the regular soda bottle, the sugar test proceeded with no sugar soda. Talking one bottle of the mentioned soda variety, the some thing was done to the soda. It was also subjected to very high heat until it boiled and the water was gone. quite surprising is the fact that the no sugar soda did not stand up to its name - almost anyway. There is still a bit of sugar on the pan, but it is so negligible compared to the result of boiling regular soda.

034 - Electrochemistry In this video Paul Andersen explains how electrochemical reactions can separate the reduction and oxidation portions of a redox reactions to generate (or consume) electricity. The half reactions can be analyzed to determine the potential of either a galvanic (voltaic) or an electrolytic cell. The reduction takes place at the cathode and the oxidation takes place at the anode. Do you speak another language?
