Killer of Gandhi, Killer of Country

‘Gandhi ke Qatil, Desh ke Qatil’: Social Democratic Party of India to take pledge on January 30

By TCN News,

January 28: Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) has announced protest demonstration and taking of a pledge at Jantar Mantar on January 30 to “defeat fascism and flourish secularism.”

Terming ‘January 30, 1948’ as a day when “the first terror activity in independent India” took place, the SDPI said: “By assassinating Mahatma Gandhi, the killer Nathuram Godse and his associates fired not only on the chest of Mahatma, but of the very chest of the nation itself. It was an act aimed at disturbing peace and tranquility and spearheading violence and destruction.”

“The peace and harmony loving citizens of India should come forward and stand united to save the country from the clutches of Godse’s disciples, by upholding Gandhi’s ideals and values,” SDPI said in a release after a press conference.

Hafiz Manzoor, national vice president, and Afsar Pasha, national general secretary, SDPI, addressed the press conference.

“Godse and who prompted him for that heinous murder, did not like the unity among Hindus and Muslims to exist. These fascist groups with violent and fanatic designs never hesitated to embrace any kind of extremism and bloodshed. By killing Gandhi, Nathuram Godse and those forces that stood behind him have started the bloody phase of communal fascism in independent India.”

The party also called it shameful that while patriotic Indians remember the name of Gandhi with reverence on the day of his martyrdom every year, “there are fringe elements who adorn Godse as a national hero. Hindutva extreme groups like Hindu Maha Sabha are glorifying Godse with much more vigour. They are trying to erect his statues in public places and planning to build Mandirs in his name.”

Calling upon all citizens to take a pledge to defeat “fascism and flourish secularism,” the party has requested and invited people to protest at Jantar Mantar here on Friday, January 30.

Prynt your photos

TThe dizzying growth of the smartphone market has contributed to the spread of the digital photography, but just like any other technological advances, it has been done with compromises. And one of them is the death of good old printed pictures. I think you’ll agree with me that there’s no way for a digital picture to have the same impact as a physical one that you can hold in your hand.

prynt instant camera case smartphone

And this is the philosophy behind Prynt, a new startup that is currently seeking crowdfunding on Kickstarter. To put it as short as possible, Prynt is described as the world’s first instant camera case for smartphones. But before you get too excited, at the moment it will work only with the iPhone 5/5s/5c/6 and the Samsung Galaxy S4/S5. But the team behind Prynt says they are working to bring support to more smartphones.

If you are familiar with Polaroidcameras, then this will seem very simple to operate. You just plug the smartphone into the case, snap or take an existent picture and then just print! The device comes with its own battery, works offline, doesn’t require a Bluetooth connection and even no ink. It is available in white, pink or blue colors and currently sells for a limitedprice of $99.

A drawback is that each case holdsonly 10 sheets of paper, but refills are available through the app, making this task quite easy. You can get one pack of photos containing 10 sheets with each Prynt Case reward on Kickstarter. Also, for every $25 you add to your pledge, you will get 50 extra sheets.

But printing pictures isn’t the single thing this useful gadget can make. When you are posing for a photo, the app records a short video and stores it in the cloud. So, when you will hold your phone over the printed image, the app will automatically scan and recognize it, showing a short movie on screen in augmented reality.

5 Reasons Why Coke Is Bad For Your Health

5 Reasons Why Coke Is Bad For Your Health

 
5 Reasons Why Coke Is Bad For Your Health

 

People who watch their diet and keep track of what they eat and drink already know that coke should be avoided. This is what any doctor will advise you to do.

The chemicals and sugar contained in fizzy drinks ruin your health. They are addictive and getting rid of this bad habit is not that easy. Do not drink Coke if you want to stay fit and healthy

What harm does Coke do?

1. Bad teeth

Cavities occur when we consume too many sugary and acidic foods and drinks. Coke is no exception. It contains both and ruins the enamel. To fix the problem will cost you money. Dental work is never cheap. Of course, you can try and brush your teeth after drinking sodas, but the smarter choice is to avoid them and drink water instead.

2. Risk of diabetes

Carbs is another name for sugars. Most foods contain a lot of carbs. Pouring Coke on top will only make the problem worse. It takes only 20 minutes to increase your blood sugar. It’s extremely hard to treat diabetes hence we suggest you should stop drinking all brands of sodas, Coke included.

3. Poor metabolism

Do not trust commercials where you see famous sportsmen drinking Coke after a training session. You will keep piling up pounds merely by drinking Coke because sugary sodas slow down your metabolism and your body does not burn fat as efficiently. Drink plain water!

4. Aspartame affects inner organs

Aspartame is still being studied. It is known to cause a lot of diseases. It does not really matter which type of Coke you opt for – you are ruining your body anyways.

5. Coke affects fertility

Regular consumption of Coke might have a negative impact on your reproductive system. The chemicals that most fizzy drinks contain lead to defects in your organs that are responsible for reproduction. Avid Coke fans should bear this bad news in mind.

 

What Happens To Our Body After Drinking Coca Cola?

 

 

Have you ever wondered what exactly Coca Cola is?

 After 10 minutes

Ten tea spoons of sugar contained in a glass of Cola, cause devastating “strike” on the organism and the only cause, by reason of not vomiting, is the phosphoric acid which inhibits the action of sugar.

 After 20 minutes

A leap of insulin levels in bloodstream occurs. The liver converts all the sugar into fat.

 After 40 minutes

Ingestion of caffeine is finally completed. The eye pupils are expanding. Blood pressure rises, because the liver disposes more sugar into bloodstream. The adenosine receptors get blocked, thereby preventing drowsiness.

 After 45 minutes

Body raises production of dopamine hormone, which stimulates the brain pleasure center. Heroin has the same principle of operation.

 After 1 hour

Phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in the gastrointestinal tract, which supercharges metabolism. Releasing of calcium through urine also rises.

 After more than 1 hour

Diuretic effect of the drink enters in “the game”. The calcium, magnesium and zinc are removed out of the organism, which are a part of our bones, as well as sodium. At this time we have already become irritable or subdued. The whole quantity of water, contained in a coca cola, is removed by the urine.

Actually, when having a cold bottle of Coke and enjoying its undeniable freshness, do we know what chemical “cocktail” we pour into our throats?

The active ingredient of Coca-Cola is orthophosphoric acid. Due to its high acidity, cisterns used for transporting of the concentrate have to be equipped with special reservoirs designed for highly corrosive materials.

Let’s have a look at “the anatomy” of one of the most advertised products of “Coca-Cola Co.” – Coca-Cola Light without caffeine. This drink contains Aqua Carbonated, E150D, E952, E951, E338, E330, Aromas, E211.

Aqua Carbonated – this is sparkling water. It stirs gastric secretion, increases the acidity of the gastric juice and provokes flatulency – plenty evolution of gases. Furthermore, spring water is not used, but is used regular filtered water.

E150D – food coloring, obtained through the processing of sugar at specified temperatures, with or without addition of chemical reagents. In the case with coca-cola, ammonium sulfate is added.

E952 – Sodium Cyclamate is a sugar substitute. Cyclamate is a synthetic chemical, has sweet taste, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, and is used as an artificial sweetener. In 1969 it was banned by FDA, since it as well as saccharin and aspartame, caused cancer in rats’ urinary bladder. In 1975, prohibition seized also Japan, South Korea and Singapore. In 1979, WHO (World Health Organization), “who knows why?” rehabilitated cyclamates and recognizing them as safe.

E950 – Acesulfame Potassium. 200 times sweeter than sugar, containing methyl ether, where it aggravates the operation of the cardiovascular system. Likewise, it contains asparaginic acid which can also cause excitant effect on our nervous system and in time it can lead to addiction. Acesulfame is badly dissolved and is not recommended for use by children and pregnant women.

E951 – Aspartame. A sugar substitute for diabetics and is chemically unstable: at elevated temperature it breaks down into methanol and phenylalanine. Methanol is very dangerous: 5-10ml can cause destruction of the optic nerve and irreversible blindness. In warm soft drinks, aspartame transforms into formaldehyde which is very strong carcinogen. Some number of cases with aspartame poisoning include: unconsciousness, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, palpitation, weight gain, irritability, anxiety, memory loss, blurry vision, fainting, joint pains, depression, fertility, hearing loss and etc. Aspartame can also provoke the following diseases: brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis.

E338 – Orthophosphoric Acid. This can cause irritation of skin and eyes. It is used for production of phosphoric acid salts of ammonia, sodium, calcium, aluminum and also in organic synthesis for production of charcoal and film tapes, for production of refractory materials, ceramics, glass, fertilizers, synthetic detergents, medicine, metalworking, and textile and oil industries. Food orthophosphoric acid is used in the production of carbonated water and for preparation of ingredients in pastry. It is known that orthophosphoric acid interfere with the absorption of calcium and iron from the body, which can cause weakening of bones and osteoporosis. Other side effects are thirst and skin rashes.

E330 – Citric Acid. It is widely spread in nature and is used in pharmaceutical and food industries. Salts of citric acid (citrates) are used in food industry as acids, preservatives, stabilizers, and in medical fields – for preserving blood.

Aromas – unknown aromatic additives

E211 – Sodium Benzoate. It is used in production of some food products, as an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent. These products refer to jams, fruit juices and fruit yoghurts. It’s not recommended for use by asthmatics and people who are sensitive to aspirin. A study conducted by Peter Piper at the Sheffield University in Britain, found that this compound causes significant damage to DNA. According to his words, sodium benzoate which is an active component in preservatives doesn’t destroy DNA, but deactivating it. This can lead to cirrhosis and degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease.

So, what turns out? Well, it turns out that “the secret recipe” of coca-cola is just one advertising play. What kind of secret may be there, when it’s well known to us that this is a weak solution of cocaine with preservatives, colorants, stabilizers and etc. I.e., this is legalized cocaine addiction plus pure poison. Diet Coke is even worse, because the aspartame in it, replaces sugar, becoming pure neurotoxic poison.

So, if you can’t imagine a life without coca-cola, take advantage of the following recommendations:

– Many distributors of coca-cola in U.S use this drink for cleaning their truck engines.

-Many police officers in U.S have bottles of coca-cola in their cars and when a car accident happens, they wash the blood out of the road with it.

– Coca-Cola is a great tool for removing rusty stains on chrome surfaces of cars. To remove corrosion from car battery, pour it with Coke and the corrosion will disappear.

– To unscrew a rusty screw, dip a cloth in coca-cola and wrap around it for several minutes.

– To clean stains from clothes – pour coca-cola on dirty clothes, add washing powder and run the washing machine as usual. You will be surprised of the results.

– In India, some farmers use coca-cola instead of pesticides for pest extermination, because it’s cheaper and the effect is completely satisfying.

So, coca-cola undeniably is a very useful product. The key is to be used for intended purposes, but not for drinking!

Here is a video about Coca-Cola!

If you’re a smoker who’s trying to quit, you may recall hearing about vaccines designed to cause the body’s immune system to treat nicotine like a foreign invader, producing antibodies that trap and remove it before it’s able to reach receptors in the brain. It’s a fascinating idea, but according to scientists at California’s Scripps Research Institute, a recent high-profile attempt had a major flaw. They claim to have overcome that problem, and are now developing a vaccine of their own that they believe should be more effective.

There are actually two forms of nicotine, and they’re like molecular mirror images of one another. These are known as the left-handed and right-handed versions. Although about 99 percent of the nicotine found in tobacco is the left-handed version, a previous vaccine created by a biopharmaceutical company caused the body to create antibodies againstboth types.

According to lead scientist Prof. Kim Janda, this was a partial waste of the immune response, causing the vaccine to not be as effective as it could have been. As a result, it only worked on 30 percent of test subjects in clinical trials.

Instead, his team has created a vaccine which causes the body to only produce antibodies that target left-handed nicotine molecules – none of the immune response goes towards making antibodies that won’t be needed. In lab tests on rats, the vaccine was found to be 60 percent more effective at producing left-handed-nicotine-targeting antibodies than an alternate version, which was made from a 50-50 mix of both left- and right-handed nicotine derivatives known as haptens.

The scientists are now trying to establish how consistently such a vaccine would work across large populations of users, given the variations in individuals’ immune systems. They also note that even if it does work to remove the physiological reward system for smoking, users would still have to deal with smoking-withdrawal symptoms.

A paper on the research was recently published in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. Another nicotine vaccine, utilizing some of Janda’s materials, is currently being developed at Weill Cornell Medical College.
