  • why do we dribble when we sleep

    If you drool while sleeping, you re probably familiar with drool stains on your pillow and having to wipe your mouth when you wake up. You also may have noticed that saliva leaks out mostly when you sleep on your sides and rarely when you sleep on your back. Thatвs because,
    when you sleep on your back, saliva settles at the back of your throat and eventually drains down. There are different glands that contribute to the production of saliva. And the amount of saliva your body produces while youвre asleep is quite less than while youвre awake. In the resting state, the rate of secretion of saliva has been estimated to be 0. 3 to 1 mL/1. 7 m2/min. You donвt drool when youвre awake because you swallow up the saliva.

    why do we need to study rizal today

    I agree to majority of the viewers that Rizal s subject may be boring especially if the teacher cannot teach the subject with passion. When I was a student, I passed the subject just to complete the requirements. But later on at the age of forty, I enjoyed reading El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere. Maybe now that I am mature, I can easily understand his perspective for the love of Filipino people. I can easily imagine how he described the importance of Ilog Pasig and the beautiful houses along the river. Rizal described that we have a rich tradition, culture, industries, and commerce. Before the Spanish came to Philippines, we have our own commerce and industries and the Spanish changed this to slavery. They taught us bad practices like false religious practices, gambling, confession, tax for everything, fiesta, and treated the people as second class. Think about this----If Spain taught us the right teachings and religion, where are they now? Where are the golds they stole from the Machu Pichu, Incas and Filipinos?

    why do scientists think humans are causing global warming

    Just as the world's most respected scientific bodies, they have also stated that there is strong evidence that humans are driving the warming. The
    from the national academies of Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, the UK and the US said: "It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities. " Countless more recent statements and reports from the world's leading scientific bodies have said the same thing. For example, a "There is strong evidence that the warming of the Earth over the last half-century has been caused largely by human activity, such as the burning of fossil fuels and changes in land use, including agriculture and deforestation. " The idea that humans could change the planet's climate may be counter-intuitive, but the basic science is well understood. Each year, human activity causes billions of tonnes of greenhouse gases to be released into the atmosphere. As scientists have known for decades, these gases capture heat that would otherwise escape to space в the equivalent of wrapping the planet in an invisible blanket. Of course, the planet's climate has always been in flux thanks to "natural" factors such as changes in solar or volcanic activity, or cycles relating the Earth's orbit around the sun. According to the scientific literature, however, the warming recorded to date matches the pattern of warming we would expect from a build up of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere в not the warming we would expect from other possible causes. Even if scientists did discover another plausible explanation for the warming observed to date, that would beg a difficult question.

    why do they call carlos ruiz chooch

    Posted: September 1, 2011
    Author: Filed under: Tags:, We ve done, and. But let s not kid ourselves. The best nicknames in sports have always been reserved for baseball players, and the Phillies have had their share of great ones. So instead of doing a Top 10 like we did with the others, we re gonna put together a full 25 man roster by position. Keep in mind, we re going by best nicknames, not player stats, to pick our starters. Catcher- Carlos Ruiz, aka Chooch. Got the nickname from Antonio Alfonseca, who called him Chucha once, which is a Columbian slang term for underarm odor. Sportswriters misunderstood what Alfonseca said, and referred to him as Chooch. His real nickname is Chucha. First Base- Nelson Chicken Hawks. No idea how he got this great nickname. Not much info on this guy who played for the Phils for one season (1925). 2nd Base- Bob Death to Flying Things Ferguson (picture, above). The best nickname in Phillies history if you ask me. It s funny, because he only played for them for one year 1883, their inaugural season. He got the nickname for being so great defensively. Shortstop- Larry Gnat Bowa. Got it for being so small and pesky. Third Base-Willie Pudd nhead Jones. Got the nickname as a kid from a song called Woodenhead Pudd nhead Jones Outfield- Lenny Nails Dykstra. Snopes claims he got the nickname not for being tough but for regularly using the word nail as a verb. If you catch our drift. Outfield- Arnold Shake n Bake McBride. No clue on this one. Outfield- Shane The Flyin Hawaiian Victorino. Who will ever forget his leap onto the pile after the Phils won the 2008 World Series? PITCHERS Steve Bedrock Bedrosian. Pretty obvious that the nickname came from Flintstones. John Brewery Jack Taylor. Pitched for the Phils for 6 years in the 1890s. Wasn t scared to throw back a cold one. Died of kidney disease possibly brought on by binge drinking.

    why do women lie about being pregnant

    Why do so many girls lie about being pregnant? I have seen this so many times it makes me sick I wonder what they get out of it. and if is not that they lie about miscarrying. It's really very sad. I think they try to keep the man they have. but really if they do that. the men will more than likely always resent them or cheat on them. so why make things more difficult. If they don't want to be with them. they should just let them go and find someone that will love them they way they should be loved. They want to fit in with everybody else? The ones that lie well I think some do it to keep that guy you know the saying 'I want, I want, I want, I will get, No matter what'. guarantee the guy goes back to the girl because she is 'pregnant' lo and behold she miscarries! but by then she might had work her way into making the relationship work or it would break because there no baby and the guy can take a deep breath and move on.
