Deep Sea Medicine
​The Hawaiian bobtail squid may have a unique and useful purpose for tracheal cytotoxin, a toxin that causes wide widespread damage in whooping cough and gonorrhea in humans.  Science has discovered these squid collected bacteria from the ocean floor and cultivated them for use in their light organ.  Without the bacteria cultivation and the following trachea cytotoxin , the Hawaiian bobtail squid never develops a light organ.  Without which essential bioluminescent abilities will not develop and the Hawaiian bobtail squid would be vulnerable to predators. The Hawaiian bobtail squid needs bacteria to survive.
​Humans also have beneficial bacteria in their guts, which help to break down our food for digestion, to supply vital nutrients to our bodies in a form they can use it, and to keep our immune system working.  Some of the bacteria in our body are neutral as well.  This shows that not just humans, but also other animals, including invertebrates,  require bacterial to survive for many different reasons, not just to eat.  If scientists can find out which bacteria in what animals are necessary to their survival, it might open up an entire new field of medicine.

The Power Of The Ring
​The Nod is a sleek new universal controller for user devices worn as a ring.  This gadget works with smart devices that are Wi-Fi or Bluetooth enabled, including light bulbs, thermostats, dishwashers, and much more.  It works with nest thermostats, hue lights, phones or tablets running iOS, Android, Mac OSX and Windows.  This is technology of the future.  With a wave of your hand, the lights turn on; your computer starts up, and you adjust the temperature to your liking.  Imagine turning up the thermostat from your bed and never having to run on a cold floor to the bathroom again.  Turn the coffeepot on with a flick of your wrist before you are even done with your shower.  Never actually touch your netbook, but you can still operate parts of it from across the room.
The ring needs recharged daily to stay usable much like any cellphone.  It is tough and waterproof up to 169 feet to prevent accidents that might destroy it.  The Nod comes with a limited one-year warranty and a 30 day no questions asked warranty if it is returned unopened within 30 days of shipping.

Destination Amanfayun China
Amanfayun, China can simply be summed up in the accurately picked nickname the city has been given from an old Chinese saying: “heaven on Earth.” This very beautiful and historically spiritual village was restored by the Aman Resorts in hopes of bestowing the area with a sense of culture and history. Nestled in the hills of Hangzhou, there are a number of stunning attractions nearby for adventurous travelers to explore.
There are seven significant temples in the village making a circle around the mountains of spirituality. Among these temples are the Lingyin Temple, also known as the Temple of Soul’s Retreat, and Yongfu Temple. A gorgeous cobblestone path connects many of the temples and is open to the public along with many monks that pass between the monasteries.
The village itself has a number of interesting characteristics that make it an absolute must for any nearby tourist. Because of the structure of the town, no two rooms are a like. The unique designs provide tourists with a new experience at every turn. From cozy courtyards to relaxing saunas, Amanfayun is sure to meet your every vacation need and far surpass expectations.
The most alluring attribute of Amanfayun has to be the overall tranquil feel in the entire village. Whether it be the religious peacefulness, the spiritual serenity of temples or the winding pathways, Amanfayun aims to center you. As the person who dubbed the city heaven on Earth eloquently put it, “there is paradise in heaven, on earth there is Amanfayun.”

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
