Chinese cat-boy Nong Youhui
The Miraculous boy has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark. In fact, the doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his dad took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China. The relatives of the boy concerned over his bright blue eyes. According to Ling, Nong Youhui’s dad, he hopes this will end some day. He said: “They told me he would grow out of it. His eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did”. Meanwhile, according to medical tests conducted in complete darkness, Youhui can read perfectly without any light. In fact, he sees as clearly as most people do during the day.

Switzerland Bans Dolphins in Captivity. The above picture showing completely different species getting along puts the human race to shame. This picture could be cute, if only humans didn’t keep dolphins in captivity. For today it’s the best news – Switzerland Bans Dolphins in Captivity. Bravo! Now consider these facts…
Unfortunately, every seven years, half of all dolphins in captivity die from capture shock, pneumonia, intestinal disease, ulcers, chlorine poisoning, and other stress-related illnesses. To the captive dolphin industry, these facts are accepted as routine operating expenses.
The average life span of a dolphin in the wild is 45 years. However, half of all captured dolphins die within their first two years of captivity. The survivors last an average of only 5 years in captivity.
Albert Einstein’s complete archive available online
Now, we will have access to one of the greatest minds of the 20th century! This should be very cool. Einstein was an amazing man and not only was he brilliant, but he also understood people well (just look at all the quotes available from him). Fortunately, Albert Einstein’s complete archive is gradually becoming available through the Einstein Archives Online. The site’s gallery offers viewers a peak at Einstein’s high school certification, which he received upon finishing high school at 16 in 1896. It turns out Einstein was an excellent student, not a terrible one, as often said. However, according to the archives, he left because he couldn’t handle the strict discipline and authority.
Space Telescopes Hunting for Galaxies
In fact, telescopes on the ground and in space have uncovered hundreds of planets beyond our solar system. The Hubble Space Telescope sharp vision has detected the farthest planets found so far. It captured the first visible-light image of a planet around another star. It has proven that some mysterious objects are planets. And it has answered questions about planets that no other telescope currently can.
As astronomers advance their techniques to seek out new planets and new information about these planets, Hubble will continue to work alongside other telescopes to satisfy our curiosity about worlds beyond our solar system.

Images of the sun taken during this week’s solar storms
According to NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, during this week there have been huge solar storms on the sun. Fortunately, NASA has produced some incredible images of the sun. In particular, they captured the sun in all its violent glory, with its surface a maelstrom of activity. Meanwhile, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory is able to differentiate between different temperature levels on the sun. So, it’s able to take beautiful kaleidoscopic pictures for us to enjoy.
Diamond planet discovered by astronomers
If a diamond truly is a girl’s best friend, then astronomers from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, may have just discovered the supreme BFF. In particular, a planet made of solid diamond, according to a report by New Scientist. Any planet of such a small size with the mass of Jupiter, under such intense pressure from its own gravity, would crystallize. If that planet was also composed primarily of carbon (a likely scenario for this planet, since it is probably a stripped-down star), that would make it a diamond planet. The planet is orbiting a pulsar about 4,000 light-years away, and it represents some serious bling. Astronomers estimate that the planet is barely under 60,000 kilometers in diameter and has a mass roughly equal to that of Jupiter.
In fact, colors affect our thinking and rational, they have symbolic meanings which differ in cultures and countries. Undoubtedly, we make color choices constantly. Indeed, color may spoil your day and it may make your day. Accordingly, right choice of color may protect you and provide success.
Have you ever heard of the farmer who painted his cows green so that his cows might give him more milk? Well, it is difficult to say whether he got more milk from his cows, but the fact is – color affects people in several ways.
For example, a living-room decorated with red walls can be disturbing to sit and rest in. And more suitable will be Green. But red is better for a hall where visitors come. Besides, red has the effect of warmth, while blue has the effect of coldness. Ice-cream advertisements are mostly blue to suggest coldness and a blue room will seem cold at first sight. Yellow, as well as red – associated with warmth. Yellow is a color that will make a dull room bright, but it can be too bright for restfulness. A kitchen that has walls painted yellow can be pleasant to work in. And finally, mixed together, these for colors lightened or darkened, can present a wide variety and many possibilities.
