New Age Computer

More energy-efficient carbon nano tube will replace silicon transistor in new age faster generation computers. Applying nano technology, 10-12 gigahertz processor can be activated by less power compared to present silicon transistor technology. The new nano tube scenario will also reduce heating problem of laptop computers.

Nano Tube used in New Age Computer

Science Professor Subhasis Mitra of Stanford University and his students have already built an operational new age computer which contains only 178 carbon nano tube transistors. The research paper of the new technology has just published in Nature.

The scientists of computer chip research have admitted revolutionary impact of the new technology on computer-world.

Sexual Holy War

Hundreds of Tunisian women have performed their sacred duty by comforting Islamist 'jihadi' fighters in war-torn Syria. The 'jihadi al-nikah' (sexual holy war) permits extramarital sexual relations with multiple partners. Some hardline Sunni Muslim Salafists consider it as a legitimate form of holy war.

Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfiben Jeddou has recently reported to the National Constituent Assembly that such women had "sexual relations with 20, 30, 100 militants" and some of them have returned home pregnant. However, he has not disclosed the number of pregnant women with the children of jihadi fighters.

Tunisian men have also travelled to Syria to join ranks of jihadi fighters there to defeat the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

New Revelation of Heredity Concept

The established idea in genetic science that we can learn everything about a person’s genetic information from any single cell is challenged by a series of recent papers by Dr Alexander Urban and others. It is claimed that all of our body-cells may not have same set of genes. It implies we contain genetic multitudes.

The research papers show some people have groups of cells with mutations that are not found in the rest of the body. In 1953, a British woman donated blood which turned out to be partially Type O and partially Type A. This feature, called Chimerism, is claimed to be common for women. Women can gain genomes from their children. After a baby is born, it may leave some fetal cells behind which then travel to different organs and absorbed into tissue.

New Revelation of Heredity Concept

The findings of the research certainly question how forensic scientists should use DNA evidence to identify people and determine heredity. It also throws a challenge to genetic counselors.

Ecocosm in Danger

Kogi, one of the world's most ancient tribes, had already speculated 25 years ago about Nature's vagaries hidden in the disguise of mankind's materialistic development.The Colombian tribe rose up only to warn the world of their forebodings that will fall upon them like a disaster.Their message was conveyed by a documentary named "From the heart of the world:The Elder Brother's Warnings that did have a far-reaching global impact with respect to the number of the views but still the message remain unheard.

For the first time in 1988 they had contacted a person from the outside world. He was Alan Ereira, a filmmaker for the BBC. Having neither any wheel for transportation nor any written or spoken language for communication, this tribe delivered its message via a short video clip. It said that we are irrationally damaging our Earth for fulfilling our short term interests and the damage will be irrevocable.

But their was no positive response. So the tribe communicated Ereira again in 2008 to make us realise the potential danger we are heeding towards more with our eyes and less with our ears. They showed the 400 km line of golden thread physically laid by them going through all the precious ecosystems and exhibiting their gradual decline.

When these people, who have never been given the so called 'education' of ours, can think this closely of a feeling earth, then it seems an unresolvable question that "why can't we?".
