Majestic Information on Plastic

Plastic is the commonly used material with the multiple benefits. The use of the pesticides is rife due to its durability, lightweight, and relatively inert nature. Plastic is cheap compared to various metal. Unlike other metal available plastic can be changed into varied forms by using the scant amount of energy. Due to varied benefit from the plastic, its use has been accelerating. Plastic contains the polymers made up of the element of carbon, hydrogen nitrogen, sulfur, and oxygen.

Due to high durable nature plastic remains in the atmosphere for the longer period of time. These are the prime cause of pollution and due to the massive use of plastic Small Island of plastic are forming in the ocean. The problem is getting worst when the marine fauna consume plastic material as they mimic the food source.

Genetically engineered bacteria are developed to enhance the degradation process of the plastic but due to highly expensive nature, it is not feasible to operate (1). The chemical leached from the plastic is believed to be the potent carcinogen (2)

The first synthetic plastic was manufactured in by Leo Baekeland in 1907 at the New York (3). Since the discovery the use of the plastic is on the massive scale virtually eliminating all the material like wood, various metal etc. previously used.


Plastic is classified into different types based on the chemical structure. They are classified into two types one is the thermoplastics and thermosetting. The thermoplastics are those, which the chemical structure did not alter while heating. They can be changed to varied shape multiple times whereas the thermosetting are the whereas which can only be melted once.

Formation of Plastic

The ethylene and propylene obtained from the petroleum refining provide the raw material for the manufacture of the plastic. There is the need to combine this chemical with other chemicals in order to obtain the plastic. The polymers are the long chain and often refer commonly as the plastic.

Recycling of the Plastic

Plastic bottles are often not recycled because using the virgin plastic is less expensive than used one. Less than ten percent of plastic around the globe is recycled every year and rest remains in the earth as the pollutant.

Plastic Alternative

There are various alternative options available for the plastic substitute. Using the durable paper bag, using the glass bottle instead of plastic bottle, can replace the plastic bag, using bamboo material a variety of substitute available for plastic like the Carpet, mat, and curtain etc. stainless steel for storing container, toys made from wood, paper, and other recycled items can prove to be good substitute of the plastic.

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…
