Baby With One Heart, One Body but Two Faces With Brains Expected in Australia: Couple Already Has 7 Children and Receiving Welfare Benefits.

Capture.png

When the exclusive story was aired on Australian televisions’ terribly useless investigations program A Current Affair, it was one that had many (including myself) curious and concerned over how a pregnant woman and her partner are expecting a baby with two legs, two arms and one body – all with the vital organs a healthy baby will need to survive. The issue? The baby shares two faces on one skull – eyes, nose, mouth, brains and all – connected on a single stem. The rare duplication, known as diprosopus, is so rare that only 35 cases have ever been recorded,…

“Zonkey” Hybrid Between Zebra and Donkey Born Naturally and Healthily.

Capture.png

In another amazing discovery and breakthrough for natural breeding, A half zebra, half donkey hybrid who has been named Ippo has been born naturally to a donkey mother. The "zonkey" was born in an animal reserve near Florence, Italy. The entirely unforced sexual relationship involves a male zebra who jumped the metal fence and mated with neighbouring donkey female. Definitely a better love story than Twilight All members of the horse family can interbreed. Many kinds of hybrids have been recognized by breeders. Zebroids (a zebra and any other type of horse) have been bred since the days of Darwin’s…

Should We Even Be Concerned About the North Korea Rocket Launch?

image.jpg

The headlines are abuzz with concern and panic with the news that North Korea is preparing to launch a long-range rocket after its failed attempt earlier this year. The United States have called the NoKor Rocket Launch a “highly provocative act” with U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland stating that the launch threatens peace and security in the region and that the use of the ballistic missile is in direct violation of U.N. Security Council Resolutions. The U.S. is very quick in its foreign affairs to “condemn” countries and assert that this launch should be a worry in everyone’s mind….

PayPal Founder Announces Plan to Build Colony on Mars.

mars_indipendence_03_thumb

Just months after NASA successfully landed the Mars Rover Curiosity, space Transportation Company SpaceX founder Elon Musk has come out with his idea to build a colony on Mars that would hold up to 80,000 willing residents. Musk – who oversaw the first modern construction of the electric car and co-founded PayPal – claims to be “discussing plans” to transport humans to Mars, claiming to ferry 10 people at a time for the measly cost of $US500,000 per passenger even though there is no way to for the Red Planet to support human life at this time. As well as…

What Is Gorilla Glass? the Devices, Advantages and Limits of the Scratch-Resistant Product.

wordmean-gorilla.png

Corning Incorporated has certainly made a name for itself since its launch of Corning® Gorilla® Glass, but what most don’t realise is that Gorilla Glass is essentially just a scratch-proof glass, rather than the damage-proof, smash-proof glass that it is marketed as. Used on over one billion devices – and not just on phones – it’s also been widely utilised for portable media players, laptop computer displays, and some television screens – it’s pretty safe to say that since its original research in the 60’s;  It will pretty much (if not already) be the standard for future applications. Gorilla Glass…

Scientists Conclude That Prehistoric Man Ate Panda.

Panda-nom-nom-nom.jpg

A Chinese scientist has concluded that prehistoric man ate Pandas in what is now part of the south-western Chinese city of Chongqing. Wei Guangbiao, the head of the Institute of Three Gorges Palaeoanthropology at a Chongqing museum, said that many excavated fossils “showed that pandas were once slashed to death by man,” Obviously the primitive beings who hunted Panda’s weren’t aware of the Panda’s future status on Earth – after all, they are bears – “In primitive times, people wouldn’t kill animals that were useless to them,” he believed, toting that pandas are probably unlikely to attempt to attack humans…

The Australian Shark Propaganda: Why Culling the Great White Isn’t Necessary.

6-wallpaper_small-hd-wallpaper.jpg

Australia’s controversial plans to reduce the population of sharks in surrounding seas entails of very little thought and fear-mongering tactics. The proposed cull is an attempt to protect beach-goers from potential attack, but is this a largely Jaws-inspired fear campaign that hasn’t been properly thought through? Do sharks actually pose a threat to Australians? Even though the Australian media constantly alarms the threat of shark attacks to swimmers and beach-dwellers, the figures never match the claim. According to the Australian Shark Attack File (ASAF), sharks have killed 52 people in the past 50 years (so, roughly one per year) in…

The Fish of the Gulf: 2 Years On, Fisherman Still Feeling the Effects of the BP Oil Spill.

Gulf-Spill-2012-1.jpg

Fish, shrimp, and crabs are missing eyes and suffering strange malformations including tumors according to a harrowing new report — yet the FDA insists that all is well and edible. Gulf of Mexico fishermen, researchers and seafood processors stated that they are finding disconcerting quantities of deformed marine life – and they’re pointing the finger at BP’s 2010 oil disaster. The Gulf of Mexico provides America with 40% of seafood weekly, and with its populations of once-healthy sea-life dying or suffering mutations long before they’re caught, it spells a disturbing future for the fishing industry and those who depend on…

Cern-higgs-boson.jpg

What is the God Particle? What is this Higgs Boson thing? Wait, why the hell is it even called the “God Particle”…well, it’s not. Settle down class, let WordMean explain this. So what exactly is the Higgs boson? – More precisely though – why are folks spending billions of dollars to find a scientific particle for whatever reason it may benefit us? So what does Higgs Boson mean? – Well, that’s easy – Higgs boson is named after the Scottish physicist Peter Higgs. Take this entirely brief and simplistic article to discover what it is, why it is and why…
