DARPA ( The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military. Recently, DARPA has developed one kind of adhesive pads with gloves. Using this adhesive pads humans are able to climb vertical glass walls. They will be able to climb walls like geckos.
In the above photograph it was a successful demonstration of the gecko pad. You see in this demonstration, a man is climbing up a 7 meter-high vertical glass wall using adhesive gecko-inspired pads without using any other equipment. The climber only wore a safety belt to avoid accident if any happened, although this wasn’t required.
Google tries to get a piece of cake on another big market - ease of sending money P2P way. Since 4 years its still not available worldwide - maybe they will make cryptopayments global then if they have issues with CCs?
Anyways, here is how this works.
(1) Despite their appearance, elephant shrews are more closely related to elephants than shrews.
(2) Houseflies don’t allow their short lifespans (14 days) to hinder their musical abilities. They always hum in the key of F.
(3) Cats hate the water because their fur does not insulate well when it’s wet.
(4) An adult lion’s roar is so loud that it can be heard up to five miles away.
Lobsters and crabs have colourless blood or should i say have no blood. The liquid in their body is Hemolymph.
Hemolymph, or haemolymph, is a fluid, analogous to the blood in vertebrates, that circulates in the interior of the arthropod body remaining in direct contact with the animal's tissues.
It contains hemocyanin, a copper-based protein that turns blue in color when oxygenated, instead of the iron-based hemoglobin in red blood cells found in vertebrates
Can crab's blood save your life?
According an article by "Kieron Monk of the CNN:
Scientist discovered horseshoe crab's clotting-response to bacterial toxin.
(1) The world’s smallest dog was a Yorkshire Terrier, which weighed just four ounces.
(2) Snakes are carnivores, which means they only eat animals, often small ones such as insects, birds, frogs and other small mammals.
(3) Owning a cat can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by a third.
(4) Male gentoo and Adelie penguins “propose” to females by giving them a pebble.
Focal lengths are usually marked in millimetres (mm). Older lenses might use centimetres or inches.
It describes how wide the angle of view of a particular lens is: the magnification amount at which it images distant objects. Focal length is equal to the distance between the focal plane (image sensor) and the point where parallel light rays converge. The focal length is determined while focused at infinity.
At lower values the image will show more of the scene, at higher values the image will be more zoomed in.
(1) The feather color of flamingos are actually white, but, their food habit changes its color to pink. Flamingo’s main food is brine shrimp & algae.
(2) Sea otters hold hands when they sleep to keep from drifting apart.
(3) Do you know cats are much intelligent than dogs ? And also cats have sharper memory than dogs.
(4) On average a Great White Shark has 300 teeth at any one time.
(5) Baby Elephants suck their own trunks for

It's absolutely amazing that there is a lake in Tanzania where animals turn into stone. Actually the PH level of the water of the lake is extremely higher (about 10.5). And for this reason it burns the skin upon contact and gradually turn the animals into solid state. Birds and other animals that come in contact with the lake’s waters – often by mistake – die and get mummified into stones.
Infact, #steemgigs have been graced by many steemians in the past weeks and it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of the numerous creative steemian talents and the amazing services they are willing to offer for us steemians. Who knows, like was the case with #til we may eventually be in need of curators soon, to chose and support quality #steemgigs and support them to visibility.
5000 #steemgigs is a huge number!
The amazing thing is our team is constantly growing and constituting of reputable and renown steemians thus, the organization of #steemgigs will soon be high tech.&
(1) Do you love goldfish for its golden color? But, goldfish can loose their color & will become pale If you keep them in a dark room.
(2) In Alaska it is illegal to whisper in someone’s ear while they’re moose hunting.
(3) It’s an amazing fact that all male cats are typically left-pawed & all female cats are typically right-pawed.
(4) To survive through winters, tree frogs “freeze” and come back to life as soon as spring arrives. Commonly known as estivation, this technique includes finding a crevice and building a cocoon around their body, leaving only the nostrils exposed.
We found software writing problems that can be solved not by people but by DeepCoder,the researchers said in a report.
We are moving into a very exciting development phase of Bitcoin and for that matter Alt-Coins in the next few Months.
Yesterday I was observing the first Bitcoin price spikes on the Kraken Exchange in Euro denomination and thought those were exhaustion spikes. This morning they are continuing and I've come to another conclusion. The asking price for BTC is drying up. It is hard for Big-Money to buy into BTC without moving the price extremely in an upward direction.
Take a look at this Chart above. It is Bitcoin in Dollar terms from the Bitstamp Exchange in Logarithmic form. It looks different compared to
cable theory,based on the notorious Murphy's Law, which would sound like this:
If the cable can get tangled, it'll get tangled.The physicist assumed that disobedient cables could be restricted by a simple loop that could prevent more complicated entanglement. To test this hypothesis, Matthews attracted local students who conducted about 12,000 handsets with a cable length of 55 to 183 centimeters.
Hola Steemians, hoy quiero empezar a traerles a ustedes una nueva serie que se titula "¿Cómo Funciona el cuerpo?" esta serie consiste en explicar de manera sencilla el funcionamiento de nuestro cuerpo, si quieren que describa una función, acción o alguna idea o sugerencia dejenla en los comentarios con gusto la leere y será tomada en cuenta. Entremos en materia, hoy como reza el título hablaremos de la sensibilidad.
Si buscan rápidamente en google, podrán ver que la sensibilidad es la capacidad para percibir sensaciones, sin ir muy lejos la sensibilidad es la manera o el metodo por el cual permitimos al medio comunicarse con nosotros, y esta comunicación la realizamos a través de las sensaciones, pero lo que nos atañe hoy es describir cómo funciona el cuerpo, es decir ¿cómo es
It did this, by turning on its Focused Inbox setting.
Now I had never heard of such a setting before, but suddenly, my Inbox was divided into two tabs! One with high priority and one with 'Other'. Not to be confused with the spam box, ofcourse.
After checking out what it did (basically, it just randomly divided my incoming e-mails into two folders), I decided I did not like this new feature. They asked for my review, so I gave it.
I told them I already have a spam folder. Any other division I feel is needed in my inbox can be managed by creating folders and rules.
Now I know I might be amongst the more tech savvy Outlook users. Not everyone will know about folders and rules. But the people that don't know about those, might also get confused by their e-mails being spread in two (three if you count spam) seperate folders! People al
I was not much surprised when I knew that this celebration exists ( the truth is that we are living in a very crazy world these days ), but I laughed a lot.
Put A Pillow On Your Fridge Day... just think about it. :D
But, well, it exists and is celebrated on May 29 of each year. I read it began in the early 1900's and supposedly gives much prosperity and good fortune to anyone who does. Of course thanks to the Social Media has become very popular in these last years.
The celebration has from Flash games to a Facebook page where people share photos of their pillows in the fridges from that day.
This was basically a question that @lovewild asked of me and I thought it was such a good question that I felt my response was worthy of an independent post on the subject so that I could share it with more Steemers.
My disclaimer: I'm not an expert and the information I am about to share is my honest, humble opinion on how things generally work when it comes to Steemit and other crypto-coins, from my perspective. My goal is to break this down into terms that will provide you with a very basic understanding. If anyone else reads this and can offer a more accurate accounting of the inner workings, by all means, please correct me and share what you know so that we can all learn together. My intent is not to spread dis-information but to help people understand how it works and then give them easy language so that they can teach others, if they so choose.
First of all, you must understand that we aren't talking about money. In my mind, the only true
money is physical gol
(1) Kangaroos use their tails for balance, so if you lift a kangaroo’s tail off the ground, it can’t hop.
(2) Pigs communicate constantly with one another; more than 20 vocalizations have been identified that pigs use in different situations, from wooing mates to saying, “I’m hungry!”
(3) A cat’s brain is biologically more similar to a human brain. Both humans and cats have identical regions in their brains that are responsible for emotions.
(4) Azara’s owl monkeys are more monogamous than humans.
Today was a beautiful sunny day in my neck of the woods. We haven't had that many beautiful days so far this Spring because we've had an unusual amount of rain...for multiple days in a row for the last 3 weeks. (But I'm not bitter...or counting.)
This has made the grass grow green and lush but it's been somewhat difficult to care for it because it's been too wet. As such, everyone in my area was busy cutting grass and generally tending to their land today. We all feel like we are behind in what we normally would have gotten done by now. I would have already had my garden prepared for the summer season ahead and more things planted than I currently do, but that's life in Mother Nature's hands for you.
It's a lesson in acceptance and patience.
Our neighbours use their house, which is across the road from ours, like a cottage. We went over to say good-morning to them because we haven't seen them in a few weeks. They were outside like the rest of us, trying to make some headway with
