Cancer is the number one health problem worldwide. Doctors all over the world think that if cancer could be detected early when they are just few thousand cells, it is easier to treat. Unlike certain diseases which develop unique antibodies, cancers are difficult to spot. Nonetheless, they do leave a fingerprint: a change in a number and type of proteins that regularly circulate in the blood.

Now doctors can determine which combination of proteins that makes up the unique signature of a particular cancer. Sometimes they need to measure 20-25 different proteins in order to diagnose one cancer in the early stage.

Scientist have developed nanosize sensor called nanowire that can electronically detect a few protein molecule along with other biochemical markers that are early sign of cancer. The strategy is to coat a collection of nanowires with different compounds, each of which binds to one particular marker. When the marker latch on, it change the conductivity of the nanowire, creating a tiny but measurable alteration in current. Doctors have combined ten of thousand of these sensors onto a single chip which allow them to detect cancer signifying molecule in the blood while their concentration is still low. The chip also allow doctors to identify what type of cancer are present.

What Do You Know Other Than Plasma TV?

plasma tvPlasma is a gas in which atoms have been ionized. As a result, they have magnetic and electric fields that move around in disorderly fashion and in unpredictable manner and thus, altering their environment. As the environment changes, so does the plasma, resulted in a continuous change of action and reaction.

Plasma is usually hot but it can also be cold. Plasma TV for example contains a weakly ionized cold plasma which been eliminated by the cathode-ray-tube to it.

Plasma also could be the key to new energy sources. Just imagine, the core of the sun is a plasma, it ia so hot reaches 15 million degrees C and thus as everyone knows, releasing huge amount of energy. The rocket in the future may be powered by thin beam of highly accelerated plasma.

So check out, in years to come people may be talking about plasma computer, plasma pen or pencil and plasma nuclear reactor..

Love Isn’t a Feeling, It’s a Choice

Love is not a feeling. From young, through movies we were conditioned to believe that love is a feeling. It is not! If you believe, love is entirely feeling than believe me, feelings are one of the most inconsistent aspects of the human person. Our feeling alone shouldn’t direct our actions and our lives. Our action should be driven by our hopes, values, aspirations. More than that, they should be driven by our essential purpose. Full stop.

Love is a verb not a noun. It is something we do, not something that happens to us. Real love is totally different from a Cinderella story about a prostitute and the billionaire who loves her in Pretty Woman. If you feel, you didn’t love your partner anymore, than it is, indeed, a time to love her again, because love is a verb. Love – the feeling is a fruit of love, the verb. Therefore, love her, serve her, scarifies for her, listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her…etc…etc…etc.

So, finally remember. Love is a choice. A Difficult Choice.

Scientist’s Tale of Adam and Hawa

africa buffaloDo you wonder why scientist thinks all human being originates from Africa? And we, believers believe that the first couple created by God as our forefather is Adam and Hawa.

The story starts with the clue of scattered bones and artifacts our ancestors left behind centuries ago. The human genetic codes or genomes is 99.9% identical throughout the world. On and off mutation occurs and then passed on to our descendants. Generations later, finding that the same mutation in two people’s DNA indicates that they share the same ancestor. By comparing the genes in many different populations, scientists can trace their ancestral connections.

What happen in most genome, the changes occur are obscured by the genetic reshuffling that takes place each time a mother and father’s DNA combine to make a child. Luckily, a couple of regions preserve the telltale variation. It is called mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA).

This mtDNA will be passed down intact from mother to child. By comparing the mtDNA and Y chromosomes of people from various population, geneticists can get rough idea of where and when those group parted all round the planet. Using this way, scientists calculated that all living humans are related to a single woman who lives years and years ago in Africa.

Mitochondriual Eve, let me called her Hawa was soon joined by Y chromosome, let me called him Adam. And scientists too believe that they are our forefather. What a coincidence?

Huge Muscle?

bodybuilderWhere do body builders get that huge muscles?

The answer is from nutritional suppliment creatine monoydrate. Many people especially gym-goers use it either as capsule, powder or liquid. It can build your biceps increasing your energy so it allow you to carry out a longer and more strenous workout.

In normal person creatine is manufactured in te liver, metabolized by the kidney. It is used by the muscles as an energy source.

If you take exogenous creatine, you are predispose to overdose, dehydration, muscles and ligaments tear, diarrohea and finally kidney failure.

Perhaps, may be Malik Noor knows the best and he is the right person to inform us all about creatine monohydrate.

Computer That Spy On Us

zspyCan computer spy on us?

The answer is yes, it can.

Let say you download onto your laptop a program on online shopping. Of course the good thing is it help you to shop online. When you surf e-commerce websites, a pop-up comes out and recommend you new products. It even gives you comparative shopping advice about where you may be able to get a specific items cheaper.

Unfortunately, the bad side of it, is the program also monitor what users were doing online and discreetly reported back to the company. The company knows your home address and the items your purchase. They keep tracks on the site you visit and the software you download. They know what kind of books you read and what kind of movies you watch.

Don’t you think that was spying on your privacy?

I am not paranoid but I think computer is getting too much information on their users.

What say you?

Wrong Conclusion, Professor

zprofA professor dedicated his whole life to research on arachnids and their behaviour. Eventually, after many years of patient study, he was ready to announce his finding to the world.

A special meeting of the world’s top experts on arachnids was arranged, and the meeting was thrown open to the press as well – for the professor felt his findings were so amazing that the whole word should be informed.

When the audience were all seated, the professor strode into the room, ready to reveal the results of his research.

The professor placed a spider to walk three paces forwards. To the astonishment of the audience, the spider did as it was ordered.

“Now take three paces backwards”, commended the professor. Again, the spider obeyed the command.

Then, the professor pulled all the legs off the spider, put it back on the table and said; “Walk three forward paces.” The spider did not move. “Walk forward three paces” commanded the professor, again. But still the spider did not move.

“You see,” said the professor, proudly, “that proves that when you pull its legs off, it cant hear”.

Conspiracy Theory

conspiracyThis mail is different from what I read in the Western media. It’s worth reading. Happy Reading.

Michael Jackson (MJ) was known as the most loving person in the world. He gave up most of his assets for charity and all his life, he fought for equality of the African Americans, AIDS victims, Against Drug Abuse, Against Abortion, Against Child Labor and secretly channelled his properties for the hungry children of the world. However, he wasn’t peace at heart. He always think of himself as a child trapped inside a man’s body. Being Peter Pan is all his dream, never to grow up, forever a child. That inspires him to build Neverland – a heaven for children. Children of all ages and races are welcomed to Neverland. MJ had so much love to give.

However, he made a mistake which he didn’t know of the consequences. He saw the peaceful life his brother, Jermaine (Muhammad Abdul Aziz) had as a Muslim – true, Jermaine faced so much pressure that he moved to Bahrain.

In 1989, MJ made a press conference which shocked the world, “I have seen the Islam in the life of my brother, I have read the books about Islam. And I’d love to someday feel the calmness and peace of Islam….”

Since that, MJ’s life was never the same again. He was accused of so many accusations against child molestation. MJ was not someone who can deal with much pressure as he is a ‘delicate child’. All the extortion and black mail followed after that. Everything he did was being seen as wrong in the eyes of the Media. All these are to influence his fans to hate MJ. If he is hated, then he would not be influential anymore.

For several years, he stayed in England. Getting motivation from a long time friend, Cat Stevens, who had converted into Islam – named Yusuf Islam. From him, MJ learnt how Yusuf had survived being Muslim. He made friends with a song writer, Zain Bhikha too, who wrote a song titled, “GIVE THANKS TO ALLAH”, which he wanted MJ to sing whenever he is ready.

Following his trial, MJ withdrew to Bahrain, where he was the special guest of sheik Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the son of Bahrain’s king. It was then that Michael began to give conversion more “serious thought.”
MJ stayed in Bahrain for approximately 3 years. He studied Islam, the prayers and learn to read the Koran (al-Quran).

Finally, he came back to Los Angeles and in November 2008 MJ had formally converted to Islam in a ceremony at a close friend’s house in Los Angeles. He perform Haj with the King of Bahrain and son on December 2008.

He had a hidden agenda when he wanted to make a final comeback. He annouced in a press conference on March 2009, “This will be my final concert. I’ll see you all in July….”

He planned that during his concert, he would announce that this is the FINAL concert as he wouldn’t be performing anymore. He will declare that he is a Muslim and will only sing with Yusuf Islam and Friends.
At the end of the concert, he will be singing the song, “GIVE THANKS TO ALLAH” with Yusuf Islam. That is the reason why he chose London as his final concert venue instead of the USA. It was because he thought he could escape the USA’s extortion, and that he could perform with Yusuf Islam who is in England.

At 12.30am, 25th June 2009, he hugged his production manager and said, “After rehearsing for 2 months, I am finally ready for the concert…” Before leaving to sleep, he waved his dancers, “It was a good night everyone. I’ll see you all tomorrow…” The next thing… He was pronounced dead at 2.26am….

When 911 was called, there are so much questions asked. It is as if they didn’t know who MJ is and where he lived. The questions asked are more towards to delay time. The hospital said the autopsy result can only be obtained after 2 months – very illogical as even the worst African technology could obtain the result in less than 2 weeks.

MJ’s family members opt for second private autopsy as they started to feel something fishy is going on. The result came out in about 4 days – MJ was drugged with high dosage of anaesthetic – drug that brings about a reversible loss of consciousness, if used to much could stop the heart from beating.

Another result which was not aired in the media was, MJ’s stomach is empty of this drug, but his blood were filled with it – same case as the death of Marilyn Monroe. The private doctors also found many needle marks, afraid to be forced injections given to MJ on his bed.

In CNN Live after a week, Barack Obama was interviewed. And he said, “I love MJ, I grew up listening to his songs. It is a great loss, but rest assured that there is no conspiracy in his death…” Now, why must a President made such statement before the official autopsy result came out? How would he know that there is no conspiracy without the post-mortem result? Seems like someone is afraid of his shadows.

MJ was known to the world as a person who is against drug abuse. Why must he be addicted to drug, then? If he wanted to commit suicide, why rehearse for his concert? And why will he want to see his dancers the next day?

Enough about his death. I am sure people around the world is not stupid anymore. These supreme power can fool us during the Marilyn Monroe conspiracy, Martin Luther King and Princess Diana. But in this MJ’s case, they left too many loopholes for those who think…!!

MJ left us with this unfinished studio-recorded song, GIVE THANKS TO ALLAH.

MJ’s family was about to give him a Muslim burial with the help of The Brotherhood of Islam. But, the CIA showed up at Neverland’s door – blackmailed them that if they do so publicly, Katherine (MJ’s mother) would be pull off from MJ’s 3 children’s custody as well as MJ’s estates. Instead, they’ll hire Debbie Rowe for the purpose, and the court will be in their favour. So much for democracy and fairness…

Finally, they agreed to let MJ have a Muslim Burial in Neverland. But in condition, must show to the public a Christian Memorial Service, as to prove to the world that MJ was never a Muslim.

So, Staples Centre was just a normal show. That’s why the coffin was closed and sealed.

MJ was buried days earlier. The Gold Coffin was empty. They were about to bury the Coffin according to Christianity ways in Hollywood – as in their deal with the USA Government.

Lessons From Earthquake

tsunami02After tsunami that claimed more than 200,000 lives, scientists offered explanation on the rationale of having earthquake. Scientists believe that the quake changed the earth’s rotation and caused the planet to tremble on its axis.

The analogy is like when you drive, you had pushed in a clutch and changed gears.

Scientists showed that when earthquake happen, a certain amount of mass move toward the centre of the earth. When more mass close to the centre, the planet would rotate faster. Just imagine a spinning ice skater who pulls in her arms starts to spin so fast as she becomes a blur figure.

What are the lessons?

The lessons to learn are, first, though earthquake cause destruction, it is a system that make life possible. Movement of the earth plate is essential to the recycling of carbon and the earth is the only planet in the solar system that known to support life, at the same time, the only object with tectonic activity. Take for example Mars. It has no earthquake. The weather is very cold. It has no air and hence, no life.

Second, the human existence in this biosphere may require the planet to be dynamic and sometime violent. It is similar to human life. Human life has to be dynamic. In doing so, sometimes we experience turmoil and at another times we lead a peaceful life.
