7 Majestic Facts on the Primates

Primate is the order of mammals that include human beings. The first primate has evolved around 80 million years ago. There are 505 primate species in existence. Due to massive deforestation around the globe, the primate species are being accessible once considered difficult to access. Due to this new primate species are contently emerging. Primates are catechized by higher cognitive ability and can be considered as intelligent than another organism (1).

Recently, the prediction of the scientist that most primate species will extinct from 50 years is producing Goosebumps around the globe.

Majestic Facts 

1. Origin of Primates

The origin of the primates is often traced to the tropical forest as the ancestor of the primates used to live in the tropical forest.

2. Vision

Primates have the well-developed vision that is the binocular vision (2). Binocular vision differs in the monocular vision due to the fact that the field of vision gets overlap. It has the advantage over the monocular vision due to the absence of dark sport.

3. The weight of the Primates

The weight of the primate varies from species to another. The weight cans merely 30 grams in maturity to 200 kilograms in gorilla without considering human beings

4. Ability to Walk on Two Legs

Human is the only primate species capable of walking on two legs. The term bipedal is used for humans due to their ability to walk with two legs.  

5. Cause of Extinction

The prime cause of the primate extinction is the habitat loss caused by degradation of the natural habitat. Planting the palm for the purpose of biodiesel has adversely affected their natural habitat. The high demand for the Primate meat in Africa is driving them to extinction. The unjustified demand of the bushmeat in China is accelerating the illegal smuggling. In China, It is generally believed that the body parts of the primate have healing property.

6. Importance of Primates

Primate plays the great role in the pollination of the plant and the dispersion. This is vital to mention the ecological balance in the mother nature.

7. How to Protect

The adjoining community around the natural habitat should be educated about the benefit of having primate around. Further, there should be the long-term plan for the community members for long-term sustainable income.

Hunting needs to stop to regenerate the population. Further, Unwanted human contact needs to be avoided in their natural habitat.

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.

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…
