Alcohol’s Effects:

Alcohol's effects can be seen immediately on people so that is enough to show that alcohol is bad for the brain. It slows reaction, makes people unable to make sound decisions and this are just after a few drinks. In large doses alcohol destroys the brain, so in consideration of all that - what will a lifetime of alcohol consumption have on the human brain?!
For health, religious, or personal reasons, millions of Americans choose not to drink at all. Among these people there is no alcoholism, no drunk driving, no unintended pregnancies due to the influence of alcohol, no fetal alcohol syndrome, no alcohol-related fighting or domestic violence, no hangovers, no beer bellies, and, of course, much lower restaurant bills. Since most of the "health benefits" of wine can also come from grape juice, it puzzles me that in this day and age anyone would encourage drinking as healthy. The alcohol industry has a great PR campaign going, I guess.

air pollution

My reading is about ‘AIR POLLUTION: how does it hurt?’ Even at low levels, air pollution can damage your health in several ways:
• IRRITATION : burning eyes, cough and chest tightness
• REDUCED LUNG FUNCTIONS: difficulty breathing deeply vigorously, more rapid and shallow breaths than normal.
• AGGRAVATED ASTHMA: Increased hospitalizations and emergency department visits to treat severe symptoms.
• INCREASED SUSCEPTIBILITY TO INFECTIONS: reduced ability to fight colds, flu, bronchitis and pneumonia because protective membranes


My reading is about ‘Love Hurts…but it Can Also Heal’ state University had married couples create minor blister wounds on their skin, then discuss a neutral topic. Two months later, the test was repeated, but this time couples talked about a point of conflict. The result: couples took longer to heal after airing disagreements than when covering neutral round. Hostile couples who were critical and sarcastic healed slowest and produced less of the proteins linked to healing. Dr Brian Baker, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, performed another study that showed the physical effects of marital harmony. Married couples with mild hypertension wore blood-pressure monitors for 24 hours and completed a questionnaire about the quality of their marriage. Bad marriages raised while good marriages lowered blood pressure for couples. “Marriage tends to be good for your health, but it’s the quality of your marriage that’s important,” says Baker.

the colour

Asasalamualaikum....actually I want to share about the colours...Well,the retinas in our eyes have three types of colours receptors..From my reading,i just know that we can only detect three of the visible colours which red,blue and green.These visible colours also known as additive primaries.It is these three colours that are mixed in our brain to create all of the other colours we see such as orange,grey,purple,yellow and others.Basically,the wavelength and frequency of light also give effect to the colours we see.The seven colours of spectrum have varying wavelength and frequncies.
That's all from me


i want to share about my reading today from readers digest..it's about sleep..
do you know how many calories does an extra two hours of sleep save??
well,the answer is about 300,according to a study at Hendrix College in Conway, Arkansas (i don't know where this place)..from the research, thirty-two student kept their diaries of how much sleep they got and which foods they ate over a three-week period.
The first week, students stuck to their normal eating and sleeping schedules.
The second week, they were asked to sleep an extra two hours a day.
And the third week, they went back to their normal routines.
Researchers found that the students who got an extra two hours of sleep during week two ate nearly 300 calories a day less than in week one.When they returned to their normal sleep-deprived routines in week three, they ate more food..so,that's all the interesting something from sleep..

Star cluster

Star clusters are groups of stars which are gravitationally bound.Two distinct types of star cluster can be distinguished: globular clusters are tight groups of hundreds of thousands of very old stars, while open clusters generally contain less than a few hundred members, and are often very young.Supergiant — Supergiants are the most massive stars. Supergiants can have masses from 10 to 70 solar masses and brightness from 30,000 up to hundreds of thousands . Blue supergiant star — Blue supergiants are supergiant stars (class I) of spectral type O. They are extremely hot and bright, with surface temperatures of between 20,000 .Open cluster — An open cluster is a group of up to a few thousand stars that were formed from the same giant molecular cloud, and are still loosely gravitationally . Galaxy formation and evolution — The formation of galaxies is still one of the most active research areas in astrophysics; and, to some extent, this is also true for galaxy..
thats all



i have read one of the article in the new straits times..i think it's about the comment from a 40-year-old working mother of four children. she talk about the hot news now day that advertised on the new straits times on October,17 entitled 'Teacher kicked,slapped by two Form 2 girls. she was not satisfied with the responsible among the parents nowadays until the case like that happened. she state that the teachers these days are scared of the students and also asked these questions: What has happened to us, parents? How can we be so gullible as to think our children could never tell a lie just to escape the punishment they deserved?
so,for her comment,she said that it is right that we should be a caring society. At the same time, we must be practical and use our common sense on the issue of discipline in school. The need for this must be accepted by all parents who want to see their children grow up to become decent and responsible citizens. There's no two ways about it.
Without a proper disciplinary system enforced in every school in Malaysia, we can be assured of a chaotic school environment such as that we already seen in some countries like the United States.
for me, i am totally agree with this mother as the parents play a main role in order to make their children good or bad human.
OK,that's all..
