Virtual visit to a museum is good for your health
Scientists have known for a long time that avoiding physical social interaction causes a variety of health issues. These include a higher risk of heart disease and stroke, as well as a quicker mental deterioration and even an earlier death. Elderly people are more at risk since they are more prone to be socially isolated and lonely.
Generating solar power at night, it's possible
Solar panels are becoming increasingly prevalent and are being installed on more and more roofs. However, a significant disadvantage of solar panels is that they can only produce energy during the day. Researchers have demonstrated that it is possible to produce solar energy at night, so there is yet hope. Not from sunshine, but from heat that the earth emits from the sun.
Neanderthals possibly extinct because of sex, not violence
There is a small amount of evidence suggesting Neanderthals did not inherit human genes, despite the fact that about 2% of the genomes of all living humans outside of Africa come from Neanderthals. According to a recent study, the number of Neanderthals who may have reproduced sexually with one another decreased as a result of possible interbreeding with our forebears. Their final demise would have resulted from that.
Why did women abruptly stopped menstruating upon arrival at Nazi Death Camps?
The Holocaust's evils are now well-known. Numerous scholarly studies, books, and films have described the crimes committed during World War II that ultimately resulted in the deaths of millions of people, including six million Jews. However, one issue has never been thoroughly investigated until recently: why did over 98 percent of the women detained in concentration camps abruptly cease menstruating?
Without a now-gone Nile River tributary, the Pyramids of Giza would not have been possible
The seventh wonder of the world, Cheops' pyramid, is one of the Giza pyramids, which captures the imagination. Not least of all due to the fact that they are built with millions of leaden stones. Naturally, you then ponder how the ancient Egyptians managed to get those stones there.
Slash-and-Burn Agriculture. Is it Sustainable?
Slash-and-burn agriculture is the process of clearing and burning plants from land in order to rehabilitate the soil and cultivate food. Slash-and-burn agriculture continues to be essential for the survival of hundreds of millions of people worldwide. However, slash-and-burn agriculture is scarcely viable today. Deforestation, a rise in carbon emissions, and biodiversity loss have resulted from it.
The Eco-Friendly Future: Sustainable Hardscaping
The term "hardscaping" describes a landscape's non-organic characteristics, including paths, decks, driveways, patios, walls, steps, and other man-made constructions. A landscape design that helps local wildlife and reduces pollution might be a part of sustainable hardscaping. This implies that it is possible to lessen your environmental effect without compromising your landscaping objectives.

This means reducing your carbon footprint by making small changes in your everyday routine that have a big impact over time, like replacing synthetic materials with natural alternatives and choosing products that are recyclable or sustainable. Living an eco-friendly lifestyle doesn’t mean giving up anything, but rather making conscious choices in your day to day life so that the world remains a beautiful place for future generations.
