Emanuel s embrace of an early end--one that s only a few years shy of the U. S. life expectancy of 78. 8--is the exact opposite of how most people in America feel about dying. In a survey from the Pew Research Center, nearly 70% of American adults said they wanted to live to be up to 100 years old. But why? The quest to live forever, or to live for great expanses of time, has always been part of the human spirit, says Paul Root Wolpe, director of the Emory Center for Ethics. People now seem to have particular reason to be optimistic: in the past century, science and medicine have extended life expectancy, and longevity researchers (not to mention Silicon Valley types) are pushing for a life that lasts at least a couple decades more. Of course, people want to juice their life spans for
A chemistry degree opens doors. Our chemistry graduates acquire a wide range of skills to ensure that they will meet the demands of professional roles in industry and the public sector. Besides gaining a fundamental understanding of concepts in chemistry and biopharmaceutical chemistry, you will gain hands-on experience in a wide range of practical and analytical methods typically used in a modern chemical laboratory. The skills you lean in the School of Chemistry in NUI Galway are not solely subject-orientated, but include professional transferable skills, such as technical writing skills, verbal communication and presentations skills to help you develop to become a rounded, well-skilled and balanced professional. Could you envisage a career in food sciences, the plastics industry or the
Answer 1: Hold on - there may be life on Mars. We don't yet know for certain that there isn't. Right now, life as we know it would not survive anywhere except Earth or Mars, and possibly Europa (in our solar system). Life requires liquid water. Europa (one of Jupiters moons) has a muck of mud some hundreds of kilometers below the ice that has water in it, and there might be life there. Equatorial regions of Mars get above freezing for parts of the year, and while the Martian atmosphere is too thin to sustain liquid water on the surface, the pressure is great enough underground, and muddy slurries of landslides from subsurface water have been observed. Earth of course has oceans of the stuff. It all has to do with pressure and temperature for water. Now, whether there is life there or not,

Thyroid nodules are abnormal overgrowths of tissue in the thyroid gland that are most often benignвbut may be cancerous in some people. Some people have one nodule while others have many. Thyroid nodules may be solid tissue or filled with blood or other fluid. Thyroid nodules are quite common, with as many as half of all people having at least one nodule by the age of 60. Do thyroid nodules cause symptoms? Thyroid nodules most often do not cause symptoms. However, sometimes the tissue in a nodule makes too much of the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), and you may have the following symptoms of hyperthyroidism, which means your thyroid is overactive: Nervousness, hyperactivity In addition, larger nodules may cause difficulty swallowing or breathing, hoarseness,
Stars twinkle, while planets (usually) shine steadily. Why? Stars twinkle because Б theyБre so far away from Earth that, even through large telescopes, they appear only as pinpoints. And itБs easy for EarthБs atmosphere to disturb the pinpoint light of a star. As a starБs light pierces our atmosphere, each single stream of starlight is refracted Б caused to change direction, slightly Б by the various temperature and density layers in EarthБs atmosphere. You might think of it as the light traveling a zig-zag path to our eyes, instead of the straight path the light would travel if Earth didnБt have an atmosphere. Planets shine more steadily because Б theyБre closer to Earth and so appear not as pinpoints, but as tiny disks in our sky. YouБd could see planets as disks if you looked through a
Why do we feel so sad sometimes for no reason with anger just at the tip of our nose? You keep roaming in your own home with the feeling of sadness as you are unable to identify the real cause of it. You donвt want to talk to anyone. But anything that happens has a cause behind it. So a situation, or news, or your routine, or your life style can trigger sadness and makes you sad. Hence if you say there is no reason of your sadness then also there is a cause but you are not aware of that. To determine the real source of sadness ask few questions to yourself. Sit down and think what has happened before the feeling of sadness. It can be anything related to your present life, past or future. Not getting enough sound sleep at night can also generate the feeling of sadness. It has been found
At DoodyCalls, we spend a lot of time with our dogs. In fact, our dog RustyБwho looks a whole lot like our mascot DoodleБsleeps right next to me at night. Although hard to wake up in the morning, once heБs up he says hello with a good morning kiss and quickly gets ready to go to work. There was a time when the thought of getting a kiss from Rusty would not have been a good thing. Rusty is a rescue dog and shortly after adopting him, we discovered that he ate his own poop! Fortunately, he no longer does this, and his kisses are a whole lot more pleasant. When we adopted Rusty, he had a terrible case of intestinal worms and joining a new family must have been pretty stressful for him. It took some time, but he recovered from the worms and after he grew used to his new home, he stopped his
It's no surprise that multiple university studies suggest that as many as 75 percent of Americans experience some level of fear when it comes to dental treatment; around 15 percent suffer such severe dental anxiety that they skip regular annual visits. However, it isn't in your mouth's best interest to miss those twice-annual dental appointments. "These serve as a first line of defense to screen for tooth decay, oral infections, gum inflammation, and cancers," Townsend says. "These are also a time to discuss changes in salivary flow, bite, teeth alignment, pain or sensations, lesions and other common symptoms. ...
Former All-Star MLB pitcher Roy Halladay passed away on Tuesday after his two-seater airplane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico,б10 miles west of St. Petersburg, Florida. Halladay spent 16 years in the Major Leagues, playing for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies, becoming a two-time Cy Young winner before hanging up his glove in 2013. But Halladay left a lasting mark in the league before his retirement: on May 29, 2010, he became just the 20th player in MLB history to pitch a perfect game, and just a few months later in October, he threw just the, the first since the 1956бWorld Series. The historic milestone made Halladay only the fifth pitcher in to have two no-hitters in one season. For much of his career, Halladay was known by the nickname, Doc, which was given to him
