9 Things You Shouldn’t Do on an Empty Stomach

Image
“You are what you eat” is an adage known to everyone. But what we do before a meal also has a great impact on our health.I am going to tell you about 9 things you can’t do on an empty stomach (no less than 2 hours after your last meal). As a bonus, you’ll find information about what you can do when you’re hungry at the end of the article.9. Take anti-inflammatoriesAspirin, paracetamol, and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can’t be taken on an empty stomach. Not only does it reduce their effectiveness but it causes serious health problems (such as gastric bleeding) as well. Read here about other medicines not to be taken on an empty stomach.Advice: Milk lowers the negative effects of NSAIDs. If it’s not available, you can wash the drug down with plenty of water.8. Drink coffeeEven decaffeinated coffee stimulates the production of acid that might cause heartburn and other digestive tract issues if drunk on an empty stomach. Skipping breakfast even after coffee may lea…

The Forgot Astronomer George Lemaitre

Image
The only non-controversial thing to say about the combination of science and religion is that it’s controversial. But if you look at Georges Lemaître, you can see that the two don’t have to be sworn enemies. Never heard of him? Many people haven’t, but a certain guy named Albert Einstein was a big fan.Georges Lemaître, born in Charleroi, Belgium in 1894, was a busy man in the early 20th century. After he was awarded a Belgian War Cross as an army officer in World War I, he earned degrees in math and philosophy at the Catholic University of Leuven. Soon after that, he was ordained as a priest. Ever the scientist, he was given permission to study at prestigious Harvard Observatory while, at the same time, earning his Ph.D in physics from MIT. How’s that for a résumé? In 1927, Lemaître cooked up the revolutionary theory that still impacts how we view our universe today. His article entitled “A Homogeneous Universe of Constant Mass and Increasing Radius accounting for the Radial Velocity …

List of unsolved problems in physics

Image
Some of the major unsolved problems in physics are theoretical, meaning that existing theories seem incapable of explaining a certain observed phenomenon or experimental result. The others are experimental, meaning that there is a difficulty in creating an experiment to test a proposed theory or investigate a phenomenon in greater detail. There are still some deficiencies in the Standard Model of physics, such as the origin of mass, the strong CP problem, neutrino oscillations, matter–antimatter asymmetry, and the nature of dark matter and dark energy.[1] Another problem lies within the mathematical framework of the Standard Model itself—the Standard Model is inconsistent with that of general relativity, to the point that one or both theories break down under certain conditions (for example within known spacetime singularities like the Big Bang and the centers of black holes beyond the event horizon). Unsolved problems by subfield Edit The following is a list of unsolved problems grou…

Introduction
In digital logic design, circuits fall into two categories:combinational logic and sequential logic.Combinational logic circuits are implementation of Booleanfunctions. They compute their outputs as functions of theirinput. They do not have any memory elements.Sequential logic circuits, implement functions with state.That is, they keep information internally (think of this informationbeing stored in data members of an object). The output of a sequentialcircuit depends not only on the input bits, but also on the internalstate.It turns out, for sequential circuits, it’s easier to designwith a clock.So, what’s a clock?Most people think of a clock as a way to tell time. Why woulda computer need to know how to tell time?A clock, on a computer, isn’t the same kind of clock usedin your home, or on a watch. If you’ve ever bought a computer,one of the more important features it the clock rate. For example,you may buy a machine that’s running at 2 GHz. Do you knowwhat 2 GHz refers …

Why classical Physics relavant to Quantum

Image
When it comes to particle physics, there’s a sense that every law we know about classical physics just doesn’t apply. In a lot of cases, that’s disturbingly true. But some laws stay the same no matter how big or how small your subject. See how classical thermodynamics works on a quantum scale below, then keep scrolling for examples of quantum weirdness.

Human bone is stronger than steel

Image
Your bones are incredibly strong. Ounce for ounce, bone is stronger than steel. One cubic inch of bone can withstand the weight of five standard pickup trucks, give or take a few pounds. If you’re looking for the specifics to snap a piece of your skeleton, it takes about 4,000 newtons of force to break the typical human femur. But don’t run out and start applying pressure to femurs and then get upset at us when things don’t crack correctly. A lot depends on the bone itself, its position in the body, and the angle of attack. The age, diet, and lifestyle of the bone-owner also plays a role. Before you go all Chuck Norris on bystanders to try this yourself.
