HIV Virus Information

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) virus is the leading cause of death in the present world. There are no medications available for the treatment of the virus. Due to the highly contagious nature, it is the prime cause of the mortality around the globe. Based on the spread capacity there are two types of virus HIV1 and HIV 2. HIV 1 is the virus found in almost all parts of the world whereas HIV 2 is confined mainly to Africa and is less contagious. Without treatment, the victims die in 9 to 11 years (1). There are expensive drugs available to strengthen the immune system to prolong the life of the one who is infected.

Viruses are the obligatory parasite that remains inactive for many years. A virus becomes active only after they got the living host to multiply. HIV viruses attack the immune system by destroying the helper T cell. Over the time this virus makes the immune system highly fragile.


It is almost impossible to detect the HIV virus infestation relaying in the symptoms. Analyzing the HIV antibody mostly done for the detection. The visibility of the antibody is possible after three months of infection.

Mode of Infection

Contact with the infected serum causes the spread of the disease. The majority of the infection is sexually transmitted. The common mode of infection is the blood transfusion, sharing the needle especially while taking illegal drugs, breastfeeding, etc. It does not transmit through the handshake, hugging, using the toilet. The virus becomes inherit after exposure to the air around 30 seconds. One-fourth of the babies born from the infected mother gets the infection. There has been the development of technologies to minimize the risk the transmission of the baby.


The origin of the virus was believed to be from Africa. Both the HIV – 1 and HIV – 2 are transmitted from the primate preferably by consuming the bushmeat.


The virus was discovered in united state laboratory in 1981. Although the case of the AIDS has described in Norway in 1966 (2).


Acquired Immune deficiency syndrome is shortly known as AIDS. Depending upon the genetic makeup it requires up to 15 years to reach this stage. AIDS is the last stage marked by the collapse of the immune system. Due to the inability of the body to cope with the antigen death becomes inevitable.

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…
