Scientists first managed to create the DNA code of the Golden Apple. This will allow in the future to create new varieties of apples that are more resistant to disease. 86 scientists from 20 different research institutes and universities worked on this project for two years. Genetics published the results of their study in the scientific journal Nature Genetics. The apples will taste better. Professor Riccardo Velasco of the Italian Foundation Edmund Mach, who led the research, said that the preparation of genome-Apple creates "enormous potential for creating new varieties of apples". "Preparation of the DNA code will allow us to create resistant varieties...

Whining was distracting subjects from their task more than other sounds. "Listening to whining, you are doing less work and work well, - said one...

In humans, there is a third brain in humans there is a third brain in addition to brain and spinal cord. It is the brain intestinal! The nervous system of the intestine, which by traditional canons of anatomy and physiology is simply a cluster of ganglia and nerve endings, is much more complicated and actually is a stand-alone brain. So says Columbia University Professor Michael Gershon. Intestinal brain though and is in constant contact with the head still works independently. This is what controls all digestive processes, relieving the brain of unnecessary work.
