Did Humans Once Have Tails?

One of the most intriguing questions about our evolution is, “Did humans once have tails?”

This is a question that scientists spend a great deal of time attempting to answer. There are many theories that explain the evolution of human tails. Some of the most common theories explain the loss of a tail in human evolution through gene loss. Theories also suggest that tails are lost due to social pressure.

Does the Human Race Need Its Tail? Consider if you will the condition of some of the less than stellar Human Beings on the planet. Is a man with a flabby tail a sign of intelligence? Would a tail have helped humans live more easily in the cold climate without the benefit of thick fur and warmth? Perhaps it would have provided them with a better way to protect themselves in colder environments.

Is Your Air Quality in Risk Due to Climate Change?

Air quality in danger due to climate change is a concern not only for those living in struggling areas, but also for those who rely on environmentally-friendly products and services.

Since the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate change’s latest report last year, there has been increasing concern about the impact of global warming on the air quality in cities around the world. Although there is still much that remains unknown, one thing is clear: adaptation and research must continue to ensure that current levels of clean air are maintained. With that in mind, here are some things you can do to protect your health and the environment.

Changing bad habits. The report discusses the need to reduce emissions as much as possible. However, it makes clear that even with mitigation efforts, there will be times when emissions surpass safe limits. Emissions that exceed safe limits can cause major damage to the environment, and could increase the risk of exposure. In such times, a person could consider switching to energy options that come from clean, renewable sources, which can be harnessed or recycled easily.

Studies Discover Human Choice Is Not A Natural Function

Well, for starters on this subject, it’s clear that humans do not in fact choose their existence.

However, A new science, called the Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) has discovered that humans have programming (probably like the matrix) that determines not only how they live their lives but also how they think and how they reason. The neuro-linguistic programming, or NLP, technique can be used to change one’s way of thinking and change the way they reason about the world around them.

This is a new understanding of human behavior, discovered by modern scientists. Previous ideas about human choice involved a belief that our brains were responsible for making choices. However, this is a belief that was widespread among those in the scientific and engineering communities. As a result, these scientists believed for decades that we were blank slates without any programming. However, in the last thirty years there has been a quiet revolution amongst those who are in the know about the human mind and its power.

In the last thirty years, scientists have conducted numerous studies to determine if human beings actually have choices. These studies have revealed that the human brain is very malleable, allowing it to be trained to make certain choices over again. When the study results of this research were published, they shocked the scientific and intellectual community.

Does Gaming Help improve Humans Brain Functions?

Gamers are not only looking for the latest and greatest video games, they are also searching for the one that will improve one’s brain functions.

With so many types of games available, some say that human beings have gotten too used to games that only help improve one’s reflexes and other mental aspects. However, experts say that one should be careful when choosing the one that will help enhance brain functions.

The latest addition to the video game industry is brain training games. As more people are becoming aware of how their brains work, they have begun to seek ways to make them work better. For this reason, some are opting to play brain games that will improve one’s brain functions. Whether these games can truly do this is an open question.

Games that train a person’s mind are effective because they are teaching a person one’s brain to work better. This is not through mere process of memorizing hundreds of facts or through analytical processes. Yes, some of these programs may help increase one’s vocabulary. However, in no way are these programs intended to teach the brain how to think critically. This is what a good game is supposed to do.

How Food Waste is a Huge Contributor to Climate Change

How food waste is a huge contributor to climate change is an issue which has been highlighted by numerous recent scientific studies.

One of the contributing factors to global warming is the excess heat that is absorbed by the land and stored in the ocean. The study demonstrated that the amount of carbon dioxide released from the average person’s body could even rival the amount that is stored in the earth’s ocean. This demonstrates the seriousness with which we need to look at the issue of climate change.

The latest study into how food waste affects our health was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Research found that people who ate large amounts of fast food can have ten times more carbon dioxide in their bodies than people who ate green leafy vegetables. Emphasizing the importance of eating a balanced diet and eating foods that are both good and have high nutritional value. As if eating a balanced diet and taking regular exercise could help reduce one’s carbon footprint. The key messages were clear: To monitor consumption of red meat, processed foods, margarine, and other fatty foods in order to better assist our environment.
