Paper: 4 Interesting Information

Paper simply is the fiber of the cellulose obtained from the plants. Usually, woods, grasses, bamboo or vegetation are used to make the paper. Before the invention of Internet, the paper was only the source to store and convey the information. Books that are made up of paper were intensively used. After the invention of the Internet, the dissipation and authority have shifted towards it.

Paper is the word derived from the Papyrus plant. Before the invention of the paper ancient European and Egyptian used the thin seat derived from this plant as paper.

Before the invention of the paper, the bark of bamboo, thin sheet of wood and large leaf was used as the paper. The origin of paper can be traced to china around second centaury AD. Paste of the recycled fiber from the cotton, hemp, and linen were used as the paper (1).

Interesting Information:

1. As Pollutant

Use of conventional beech during manufacturing process releases the huge amount of chlorine and the chlorinated dioxin. Dioxins are the major pollutant adversely affecting the biota in the aquatic system. They interfere with the normal development of the disturbance in reproduction, hormonal balance, suppresses the immune system, etc. there is also the risk of bioaccumulation and bio magnification in the food chain (2).

Due to the massive use of tree and other vegetation in the manufacture of the paper, it is drastically accelerating the process of deforestation. The developing countries are rapidly harassing the resources for profit without considering the natural replenishing rate.

2. Paper and Global Worming

The extensive use of the paper that is a byproduct of the tree and vegetation is accelerating the process of global worming. The tree, which uses the carbon dioxide gas during the photosynthesis, is cut during the paper manufacturing process.

Trees are the vital part of carbon sequestration, which is essential for minimizing the effects of global worming. The decrease in the absorption of the Carbon dioxide gas, which is the potent cause of global warming, is causing unwanted consequences.

3. Manufacturing Process of Paper

The majority of the raw material for the manufacture of the paper is the tree. Wood is mechanically ground or treated chemically in order to turn into pulp. The pulp is the soft wet and sapless material. The lignin acts as the glue to bind the cellulose fiber. Cellulose is the outer covering of the cell commonly known as the cell wall. In the traditional method, the pulp is bleach with the chlorine to make it white. The pulp is washed, compressed, dried, heated, and finally, the large roll of the paper is made. The roll is then cut to desired shape and size mostly the standard size.

During the recycling of the paper, the crusher reduces the paper to individual fiber. The obtained pulp is then refined, compressed and heat to obtained recycle paper. The demand for recycled paper is lower than the virgin paper.

4. Benefit and Necessity of Using Paper

Papers are perishable that means they are biodegradable. Uses of the biodegradable product cause less pollution. Paper can provide several alternatives to the plastic. As the degradation of plastic takes time due to its innate resistance to the degradation.

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…
