11 Driving Force Behind the Global Demise of Herpetofauna

Amphibian and reptiles are collectively known as the Herpetofauna. Due to the poikilothermic nature, it is essential for this organism to hibernate. As there is no mechanism to regulate heat in the body. This result into compulsion of dormancy in an adverse climate condition. This is the genuine reason why sighting of Herpetofauna is not possible throughout the year.

Herpetofauna has the incomplete four-chamber heart and has several distinguishing mechanisms then birds and mammals. Recently due to various reasons, there has been the massive decline in the population of Herpetofauna. If the cause of decline is not ascertained in the time ahead and the adequate step is not taken. Herpetofauna can vanish from the earth within the short period of time.

Although species extinction is the natural process and human cannot control it. The natural process of species extinction is coined as the background extinction. Various anthropogenic activities are accelerating the background extinction rate.

Herpetofauna population is decline due to following reasons:

1. Deforestation

Deforestation has the huge impact on the Herpetofauna. This causes clearing of the natural habitat of the organism thriving. This can cause the adverse effect on the survival and reproduction of species.

2. Urbanization

Urbanization has the adverse effect on the Herpetofauna thriving there. It creates the condition that disturbs their natural cycle. This can lead to the lot of problems including starvation, the decline in reproduction capacity.

3. Pollution

Due to the completion of the life cycle in two medium one is water and other is land. Pollution in both mediums can directly affect the Herpetofauna.

4. Invasive species

The introduction of invasive species can rapidly wipe out the native Herpetofauna. Due to the absence of natural predator invasive species spread of invasive species can be unchecked.

5. Disease

A certain fungal disease like the parasitic fungus infestation is believed to be the major cause of the decline in the amphibian species. This fungal can affect mouth, eye, skin and any part. Some amphibians are not killed by fungus but they spread the disease at the prolific rate.

6. Ozone depletion

Due to increase in the UV B radiation from the sun the delicate skin of the amphibian has the adverse effect. Further, eggs laid by the Herpetofauna are susceptible to the intense solar radiation.

7. Snake phobia

Due to the human unwillingness to tolerate the presence of snake around. Although some community regards the presence of snake auspicious. The countless community does not tolerate the presence of the snake. There is the strong need for education about poisonous and non-poisonous snake around the globe.

8. Respiratory tract infection

The pundit in herpetology points out the respiration tract infection as the major cause of the decline of Herpetofauna.

9. Crushing inroads

Countless of Herpetofauna died on the road due to crushing by the vehicle wheel.

10. Drought

Due to the various reasons frequent occurrence of drought wiping out the Herpetofauna in large scale.

11. Foliar spray of pesticides and herbicides

The large-scale spread of pesticides and herbicides from an airplane and helicopter is killing the Herpetofauna instantly. Despite gluts of evidence that foliar spray of pesticides and herbicides is not efficient. Farmers in the developed country rely on this method.

Father of Communism Karl Marx or Charles Darwin

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Aghori Baba Living with the Dead Human Body

Aghori Baba is the most fearsome Baba of all Hindu sects. There are less than fifty Aghori Baba in India as well as Nepal due to their arduous and martinet lifestyle. Both the India and Nepal contain more than eighty percent of the Hindu population, which cremate the dead body. Aghori Baba Lives near the cremation ground and did the ritual in Pyre. Due to their practice of cannibalism, this Hindu sect is given the keen interest by westerners. 

This sect claims that by following the martinet lifestyle they are able to liberate themselves from the natural cycle of birth and death. Due to the excessive indulgence with alcohol and marijuana cigarette, they behave abnormally. True Aghori Baba remains active during the night and remains idle during the day. Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.
The origin of Aghori Sects seems hazy. The scent of evidence suggests that a recluse of medieval Kashmir might have inducted this sect. Due to the varied of s…

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
