Powerful Quote #175 : Unlearning

Education should unite not separate the nations. We learn history to know how stupidly we fought one another and not to repeat the same mistakes again.

Curious Question #9 : Current Shock – Why we die?

Current Shock

When you receive an electric shock, the current needs some place to enter your body and someplace to exit. The entry point is where you touch the wire or whatever you touched to cause the shock. The exit point is a place such as your foot on the ground.

The electric current then passes through your body, between those two points. It will excite the nerves, and you will tingle, or maybe even burn. In most cases an electric shock will cause your muscles to contract, and you will pull away from the wire.

You may have a problem if the electricity has to pass through a vital part of your body, such as your heart. For example, if you touch the wire with your left hand and it passes through your heart out through your right foot, you could have an issue. If the wire has sufficient power, the current would go through your heart and stop it, killing you.

Electric fences used by farmers are designed to have very little current. They tingle you, but they are designed to be “current limited”, and so they cannot kill you. The big security fences (used to keep people out) have enough power that if you touch them with your left hand and are standing on the right foot, they could kill you. Power lines (like those coming into your house) are not current limited, and will kill you if you touch them. The wires inside your home have fuses, so it is not likely that they will kill you if you touch them, but they will give you a painful burn.

LET-GO CURRENT

The maximum current that causes the flexors of the arm to contract and release the hand from the source is called a “let-go current.” The strength of the current that allows you to let go of the source depends on your weight and muscle mass. The average let-go current is 9 mA for a female and 15 mA for a male. If the extensor muscles are shocked by the current, a person may be thrown away from the current instead of being forced to hold on.

Documentary : Incredible Journey Of The Butterflies

The Monarch butterfly

The Monarch butterfly

The monarch butterfly is sometimes called the “milkweed butterfly” because its larvae eat the plant.  In fact, milkweed is the only thing the larvae can eat!  If you’d like to attract monarchs to your garden, you can try planting milkweed (if you live in the right area).  You can purchase milkweed seed online from Butterfly Encounters

Story : Eagle and Storm

Soaring Eagle

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?

The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come.

When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.

The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.

When the storms of life come upon us, like the eagle, we can rise above them and ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure, and disappointment into our lives.

What is your greatest challenge right now? Jot it down. And then let it lift you higher.
