Pregnant Woman Pregnant Again!

A pregnant woman in US got the most shocking news of her life when she visited her doctors for a routine ultrasound and found that she is pregnant again! Sounds weird, isn't it? But, this is the truth. Julia Grovenburg from Arkansas conceived the second baby two-and-a-half weeks after the first. This extremely rare case is called "superfoetation", in which a woman conceives for a second time while she is already pregnant.

Dr Karen Boyle, of the Greater Baltimore Medical Center said: "When the woman had her ultrasound initially they saw one sack, one baby developing, and that baby had a certain gestational age." Then they noticed a second heartbeat in a child that was much, much younger developmentally.

The 31-year-old woman was first pregnant with a baby girl. But, the recent ultrasound report showed that next to the baby girl there was a second, younger male baby developing side by side in Mrs Julia Grovenburg's womb. Julia Grovenburg and her husband Todd had already named the baby girl as Jillian. Now they will call the younger one as Hudson.

Superfoetation condition is very very rare and it can be dangerous for the younger baby as it could lead to premature birth and lung problems. But in case of Mrs. Julia Grovenburg's case, it should not lead to a problem as the gap between the two babies is only two-and-a-half weeks.

Sultan Kosen : World's Tallest Man is 8ft 1in Tall!

Sultan Kosen, a 26-year-old Turkish man, is now the officially recognized tallest man in the world. At 8ft 1in (2.47m) Kosen is about 4in (10cm) taller than the previous title-holder Bao Xishun. Kosen also has the largest hands and feet in the world. His hands measure 10.8in (27.5cm) and his feet 14.3in (36.5cm). Kosen's name will enter Guinness Book of Records for 2010.


On Thursday Guinness World Records confirmed Kosen's titles at the launch of the 2010 edition of the Guinness World Records book in London. A spokesman for Guinness World Records said Mr Kosen was the first person in more than a decade it had recognized as being more than 8ft in height.

Sultan Kosen grew normally until he was 10, but then a tumor caused him to develop a medical condition called pituitary gigantism, which affects hormone production and results in extreme growth, thickening of bones and large extremities. The tumor was removed last year and his growth stopped.

Take a look at some pictures of Sultan Kosen.





Handwriting Can Help Detect Liars!

One can tell who is a liar and who is not by analyzing handwriting. How? Because, people who write lies press harder on the paper, have longer pen strokes and produce taller letters than those writing the truth. No, this is not my assumption, but the findings of a scientific study that was recently published in the Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology. And the study concludes that yes, handwriting can be used to detect lies.

Writing Tells Lies

The unique study was conducted by a group of researchers at the University of Haifa, Israel. For the study, the researchers asked 34 volunteers to write two short paragraphs, one recalling a real memory, the other a fictitious event. For writing, a wireless electronic pen with a pressure-sensitive tip was provided to the volunteers.

After analyzing the writings, the researchers then found those who wrote lies (about the fictitious event) pressed harder on the paper, had longer pen strokes and produced taller letters than those telling the truth. It means our handwriting tells the state of our mind?

But why? Why handwriting changes when we lie? The researchers thinks that while writing lies the human brain works harder to invent facts, which in turn interfere with normal writing process. So, in the case of false writing, the average pressure, stroke length and height were significantly higher than in the true writing condition.

"A lie detector that analyzes handwriting has many advantages over the existing detectors, since it is less threatening for the person being examined, is much more objective and does not depend on human interpretation. The system also provides measures that the individual has difficulty controlling during performance. This is certainly a system that can improve - alongside the existing detectors - our ability to identify lies," the researchers concluded.

Though the research is in it's early stage, the usability of a handwriting-based verification system is very promising. I hope that someday there will be some kind of devices that can quickly scan handwriting to detect lies.

102-year-old Woman Quits Smoking

According to news reports, a woman who has smoked for 95 years has finally decided to say goodbye to the habit! Sounds strange. Isn't it? Winnie Langley, who is now 102 years old, started her smoking habit back in 1914, when everyone used to smoke and there were no awareness of the risks of smoking. Now, she has decided to quit because she "didn't fancy it any more".


Mrs Langley, who lives in Croydon, South London, has smoked on average five cigarettes a day. And still she is fine without any serious disease like cancer. Langley claims that she has prevented getting cancer because she does not inhale the smoke.

Yes, smoking is injurious to health. We all know this fact. But, it is not that every smoker is dying with cancer or other smoking-related diseases. In my view, Mrs Langley's case also proves that. But it must not encourage you to smoke more cigarettes. Because, it is a scientifically proved fact that smoking is the cause, the root cause, of many deadly aliments. Stay away from cigarettes and it's smoke.

The good news is that she is quitting. Smokers can take inspiration from her to quit the bad habit. When a 102-year-old woman can quit, why can't you? Think about it.


Deadly Staph Germ in US Beaches

Attention beach goers! A dip in the ocean may give you a deadly infections! Researchers at the University of Washington discovered a dangerous Staph bacteria in the sand and water at five beaches along the coast of Washington. The germ is a multidrug resistant form of Staphylococcus aureus and is commonly known as MRSA or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.


Marilyn Roberts, a microbiologist at the University of Washington and her team examined sand and water samples that were collected from 10 Washington beaches between February and September of 2008. The researchers identified Staphylococcus aureus on nine public beaches, and seven of the 13 samples were multidrug resistant, demonstrating resistance to vancomycin as well as other medications. Marilyn gave her report on Saturday at an American Society for Microbiology's Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy in San Francisco.

According to Marilyn, five of the samples found on the beach and in the sand more closely resembled hospital-acquired MRSA than the bacteria found in the community. Three of the samples, from three beaches 10 miles apart, were virtually identical, she says. "One would think they came from the same source," Marilyn added. But it is not clear from where all of those organisms are coming from!

Well, this is not the first time that MRSA is found in marine water and beaches. Back in February, a group of researchers from the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine had also reported Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA in a South Florida beach.

People with a weak immune system and who have recently had surgery are the most vulnerable to MRSA infection. And even healthy people may carry MRSA without any symptoms, for periods ranging from a few weeks to many years. It means, you may already have the germ, even if no visible symptoms! Scary. Isn't it?

People, Life, Happiness and Living Life Fully

Are you happy? Do you think that your life is complete? Or how to feel like your life is complete? In exploring his own and others' lives, a wise man has identified the following four rules of living that give a sense of completeness to our days on earth :


  1. Accept challenge and pain: We have to be prepared to accept pain, or else we will never dare to hope or to live. Without the readiness to feel, which must include feeling pain, we will never know joy. We have been led to believe that for every hurt there is a pill we can take to stop it. But when the pain of rejection, deteriorating health or dashed dreams does not go away, many do not know how to deal with it. Pain is part of being alive, but it does not last for ever, and it is bearable. Broken hearts, like broken bones, ultimately heal and there is life beyond the hurting.
  2. Be close to People: We need to belong intimately to a few people with whom we share our lives. All the structures for which we spend so much time and energy to create are built on sand. At any time a wave may knock them down. When that happens, the person who has somebody's hand to hold will be able to laugh, and start over.
  3. Know that you have made a difference: While not all of us have great wealth or talent, we can invest our creative energy in ways that remain after we are gone. We can all make a difference by teaching. By this I mean not only the classroom teacher but also the experienced accountant or factory worker passing on advice to the new arrival. Having an impact on another person, shaping his or her life in some small but vital way, is one of the most enduring satisfactions we ever know.
  4. Live life until you die: The philosopher Horace Kallen once said, "There are persons who shape their lives by the fear of death, and persons who shape their lives by the joy of life. The former live dying; the later die living. Whenever I die, I intend to die living." We should think of life as the accumulation of treasures. Every new friend made, every new truth learned or experience undergone makes us richer than we were. You should keep it in mind that, it is only when you are no longer afraid to die, you can say you are truly alive.

World's Oldest Dog dies at 21


Chanel, the world's oldest dog passes away! According to news reports, Chanel died on Friday of natural causes at her owners' home in Port Jefferson Station, on Long Island. Chanel was 21 years old (or 147 in dog years) and she was officially certified oldest dog in the world! Earlier in May, Guinness World Records officials presented Chanel with a certificate as the world's oldest dog at her birthday party hosted by a private pet food company.

The white wire-haired dachshund was only 6 weeks old when Denice and Karl Shaughnessy adopted her from a shelter. The stylish dog who used to wear tinted goggles (for her cataracts) also spent 9 years in Germany where Denice was on assignment with the U.S. Army. Chanel was also sensitive to the cold and that's why used to wear sweaters.

Now the big question is who is next? After Chanel who will get the title?  After all being World's Oldest Dog is not a matter of joke. What you say?
