Look Amazing - Komondor Dog



Females are 27 inches (69cm) at the withers. Male Komondorok are a minimum of 28 inches at the withers, but many are over 30 inches tall, making this one of the larger common breeds of dog. The body is not overly coarse or heavy, however, and people unfamiliar with the breed are often surprised by how quick and agile the dogs are.

Its long, thick, strikingly corded white coat (the heaviest amount of fur in the canine world) resembles dreadlocks or a mop. The puppy coat is soft and fluffy. However, the coat is wavy and tends to curl as the puppy matures. A fully mature coat is formed naturally from the soft undercoat and the coarser outer coat combining to form tassels, or cords. Some help is needed in separating the cords so the dog does not turn into one large matted mess. The length of the cords increases with time as the coat grows. Shedding is very minimal with this breed, contrary to what one might think (once cords are fully formed). The only substantial shedding occurs as a puppy before the dreadlocks fully form. The Komondor is born with only a white coat, unlike the similar-looking Puli, which is usually white, black or sometimes grayish. However, a working Komondor's coat may be discolored by the elements, and may appear off-white if not washed regularly.

Iranian university bans on women causes consternation.

 
 
More than 30 universities have introduced new rules banning female students from almost 80 different degree courses.

With the start of the new Iranian academic year, a raft of restrictions on courses open to female students has been introduced, raising questions about the rights of women to education in Iran - and the long-term impact such exclusions might have.

No official reason has been given for the move, but campaigners, including Nobel Prize winning lawyer Shirin Ebadi, allege it is part of a deliberate policy by the authorities to exclude women from education.

Look Amazing - Bionic eye



This mechanism allows some recovery of eyesight if the optic nerve is saved healthy. In most cases, this is a small camera attached to the eyeglasses. The camera takes a photo and sends it to an electronic module, hanging on the belt of the patient. The picture is black-and-white , with low resolution, i.e. perceive only rough outlines and there is no color vision. After processing of the electronic module picture is transmitted wirelessly to the antennas close to the eyeball. These antennas forward the signal to electrodes implanted into the retina. Another direction in this regard is the use of photovoltaic plate which converts light into electrons and delivers it to the brain via the optic nerve. At the moment this technology allows only making a difference between light and dark.

Look Amazing - 7 Health Benefits of Cashews




The cashew tree is native to Brazil, where its fruit is
considered a delicacy. In the 16th century, the
Portuguese introduced them to Indiaand some
African countries, where they are nowalso grown.
What we call the cashew nutrientsnut is actually the seed of
this fruit. Cashews are rich in iron, phosphorus,
selenium, magnesium and zinc. They are also good
sources of phytochemicals, antioxidants, and
protein.
Here are seven health benefits of cashews.
1. Cancer Prevention
Cashews are ripe with proanthocyanidi ns, a classof
flavanols that actually starve tumors and stop cancer
cells from dividing. Studies have also shown that
cashews can reduce your colon cancer risk. Their
high copper content also endows the seed with the
power to eliminate free radicals and they are also
good sources of phytochemicals and antioxidants
that protect us from heart disease and cancer.

2. Heart Health
Cashews have a lower fat content than most other
nuts and most of it is in the form of oleic acid, the
same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in
olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good
cardiovascular health by helping to reduce
triglyceride levels, high levels of which are associated
with an increased risk for heart disease. Cashews
are wonderfully cholesterol free and their high
antioxidant content helps lower risk of
cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases. The
magnesium in cashews helps lower blood pressure
and helps prevent heart attacks.

3. Hair and Skin Health
Cashews are rich in the mineral copper. An essential
component of many enzymes, copper plays its part
in a broad array of processes. Onecopper-containi
ng enzyme, tyrosinase, converts tyrosine to melanin,
which is the pigment that gives hair and skin its
color. Without the copper cashews are so abundant
in, these enzymes would not be able to do their
jobs.

4. Bone Health
Cashews are particularly rich in magnesium. It's a
well-known fact that calcium is necessary forstrong
bones, but magnesium is as well. Most of the
magnesium in the human body is in our
bones.Some of it helps lend bones their physical
structure, and the remainder is located on the
surface of the bone where it is stored for the body
to use as it needs. Copper found in cashewsis vital
for the function of enzymes involved in combining
collagen and elastin, providing substance and
flexibility in bones and joints.

5. Good for the Nerves
By preventing calcium from rushing into nerve cells
and activating them, magnesium keeps our nerves
relaxed and thereby our blood vessels andmuscles
too. Too little magnesium means too much calcium
can gain entrance to the nerve cell, causing it to
send too many messages, and leading to too much
contraction.
Insufficient magnesium leads to higher blood
pressure, muscle tension, migraine headaches,
soreness and fatigue. Not surprisingly, studies have
demonstrated that magnesium helps diminish the
frequency of migraine attacks, lowers blood
pressure and helps prevent heart attacks.

6. Prevent Gallstones
Data collected on 80,718 women from the
Nurses'Health Study demonstrates that women who
eat at least an ounce of nuts each week, such as
cashews, have a 25% lower risk of developing
gallstones.

7. Weight Loss
People who eat nuts twice a week are much less
likely to gain weight than those who rarely eat nuts.
Cashew nuts are indeed relatively high in fat, but it is
considered "good fat." This is attributable to the
ideal fat ratio in the nut, 1:2:1 for saturated,
monounsaturated , and polyunsaturated ,
respectively, which is recommended by scientists for
tip-top health. Cashew nuts contain less fat than
most other popular nuts, including peanuts, pecans,
almonds and walnuts. They are dense in energy and
high indietary fiber, making them a very valuable
_snackfor managing weight gain.
