Truffle facts:

1. Reason for the Skyrocketing Price

They are highly expensive because the collection of truffle in wild is absolutely difficult. Further, due to specialized niche of the truffle, it is extensively difficult to farm them commercially. The extraction of the truffle needs to be done with the help of the trained dog and the female pig. It is risky to use the pig to extract the truffle as they might eat up the extracted truffle. So, using a trained dog can be beneficial. Unlike other types of fungi, they live inside the tree roots. This makes extremely difficult to extract them.

2. Soil requirement

Generally, the pH with 7.9 is suitable for the truffle cultivation. As truffle growth retards at the acidic pH. Adding the lime in the soil in the recommendation from the expert can neutralize acidic soil. The plantation of the truffle needs to be done with the guidance of the expert.

3. Commercial production of truffle

Once the truffle is well placed in the root, which has the fungus innate in it. It can produce the truffle for more than 80 years. This is the very lucrative plantation giving the high return on investment. There is the need of doing the farming under the guidance of the expert in order to have adequate income. Usually, the tree has planted a distance and the fungi are added to the root. Truffle appears after four years depending on the climate.

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.

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…
