NASA claims: Alien Exists in the Universe

American Space Agency NASA has claimed that aliens may exist in the Earth's own universe. NASA claims that there may be life there after the water found on Saturn's sixth largest 'Nonsdale' water and hydrogen chemicals found in it. NASA's Cassini Inspiration has discovered a sea of ​​water on Enceladus.


On examination, it was found that 98 percent of the water was in it. In addition to hydrogen, carbon dioxide and methane, the remaining two percent have been found to contain organic marks that indicate the possibility of life there.

In a statement, Hunter Wet of the Southwest Research Institute of San Antonio, who inspected water found on Ensields, said that here is the source of energy used by micro-organisms. We just did not get the phosphorus and sulfur here too, perhaps because they were in very small quantities. However, the search is still on.



The existence of bacteria is possible
NASA scientists believe that the presence of bacteria on the surface of the sea found on Enceladus is possible. Scientists Linda Spilcker said that we have not found evidence of the existence of organisms here. However almost everything necessary for life is present here. Although he said, the confirmation of chemical energy for life on one moon of Saturn is a big milestone in our quest for another world.


Equal to 15 percent of moon

The size of the anceldus is quite small. It's just as big as only 15 percent of Earth's Moon. Andrew Cotes, professor of physics at the University College London said that in our universe, the planets that are likely to live on Earth outside of Mars are now joined by Enceladus after Mars and Europa.

Modi Launches 'Father of Credit Card'

On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the system of Bhima payment related to the base in Nagpur, being called as the father of credit card and debit card. Through this, any person can transfer money from his account only by placing a thumb. i.e. to become part of Cashless Digital India, now neither the mobile phone nor the internet nor debit and credit card is needed.



The Bhim App launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 30 has already become very popular and crores of people are using it. After joining the base-based payment, it is believed that there will be four-fold progress in the day. Now the government is giving cashback and bonuses to download Bhima app and to refer it to others.

Let us tell you about those specialties due to which Bhima is proving to be the father of all e-Wallet, Paytm and Debit credit cards: -

1. BHIM, i.e.,  Bharat Interface For Money, runs the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) of the Government of India. That is, because of the Indian Government's app, you can trust it completely. The biggest feature of Bhima App is its simple Only 2 MB of this app can be downloaded to Android or iPhone within a few seconds. This app is designed in such a way that the first time the person who used it can easily understand it. The only requirement for using Bhima App is that your bank account is connected to your mobile number. At present Bhima App can be linked with only one bank account.


2. In order to activate it for the first time after downloading the Bhima app from Google Play Store, it is important that you have your debit card. After downloading the app, you have to make a password containing 4 digit numbers. After that, some information on the debit card has to be entered. Bhima App can be used in all Indian languages ​​in addition to  Hindi and English. One has to make another password for money transactions. This password should also be of four digits but it must be separated from the password to open the app. That is, Bhima App has two passwords for complete security. The first password to open the Bhima app and another password will to make money transactions. That is, if you add the password created to lock the mobile phone, then there is a three layer protection in the Bhima app.

3. To transact Bhima App, you do not have to tell anyone your name, your bank, and even your bank account number. Money transactions can be done in 24 hours and on holidays anytime. Money transactions are absolutely free through Bhima App.

4. After activating Bhima App, your email address becomes like an email. Generally this phone number is @Upi like 9839098390 @ upi. If you want, you can change it and create your own UPI address. To transact through any Bhima App, it is necessary to tell only this address that is linked to your bank account. If you want to send money through Bhima App and the other person has also activated the Bhima app, you can verify only after entering his phone number. When the person's name comes in the phone number within the Bhima app, it means that he has activated the Bhima app.

5. Now the government has added the base with Bhima. That is, if a person has not started his Bhima app but his Aadhaar card is associated with his bank account, then you can add a base number and send money to him. Due to the subsidy of gas linked to the bank account, most people have now got their base linked to the bank.

6. The second e-wallet also differs from the fact that you do not need to put money in a paycheck beforehand to spend it here. Whenever you spend money, it comes out directly from your bank account and goes to another person's bank account. You do not get any interest on the money you put in e-valet like paytm. But because money from Bhima goes directly to your bank account, hence you get interest on whatever money comes in your bank account.




7. You can also create QR codes through Bhim App. The shopkeeper can stick to his shop by removing the print out. The person who is required to pay can scan this QR code directly and make payment immediately.

8. Apart from sending money to anyone through Bhima App, you can also ask for money from anyone. The request for money asked goes to the Bhima app of that person and if the person enters his password and he okay, then the money can come to your account immediately. Like many friends, if there is a party together, then one person can make a payment there and demand the payment of his own share from the others through Bhima Bhima.

9. Once someone is registered in Bhim, then payment can be done without internet. Even the smartphone is not needed. By dialing * 99 # for this, all the options will come automatically.


10. Following the inauguration of the payment system, Modi has not given the money to the shopkeeper, it is not necessary for the customer to have a Bhima app. If his Aadhaar number is connected to his bank account, then the customer can make payment to the shopkeeper by placing his thumb. For whom the shopkeeper will keep a biometric machine from him, in which thumb impression.

Zika Virus

Contrary to the popular belief, Zika virus is not new. In the year 1947 it was discovered in the rhesus monkeys in the African country of Uganda. The virus got its name Zika after the forest of that country. After some years(1952), it was found in humans. But, after that it remained silent, by and large. The first instance of this outbreak was in the year 2007. However, the first evidence of viral transmission from mother to fetus came out in the year 2014. But, the significance of this disease was not well taken care of at that time.

The Zika virus causes troubled viral infection. This virus gets transmitted through the bite from tropical mosquito that belongs to the genusAedes. Though the symptoms of this disease are usually mild, but they are very unpleasant. It is important here to know that it is not the same Aedes that causes malaria.It is the genus that is responsible for yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya and Zika virus disease. If the findings of the research conducted recently are to be believed, this virus will reach US and get transmitted by bites from the local mosquitoes. The virus is linked to even more devastating disorders, like microcephaly(abnormally small brain and head size of the babies born) and Guillain-Barre’ syndrome.

Symptoms
The symptoms of this disease include red and inflammed eyes(conjunctivitis), muscle and joint pain, fever, rash and headache, fatigue, etc. These symptoms may last for 2-3 days to about a week. But, symptoms are not common to all persons affected with this disease.Only 20% affected persons show the signs of symptoms. Though generally people recover from the infection without help, but it may make the life of an affected person miserable and interfere with his or her life without help.
Prevention
Though the researches are in the full swing to create a vaccine for the Zika virus, but as of now there is no any vaccine available. The best remedy available against this virus today is to avoid mosquito bites and maintain goodhealth care. The health authorities in Canada and United States are currently suggesting the pregnant women not to travel to the countries where the Zika virus is spread. The countries where mosquitoes carry the Zika virus recommend their women not to get pregnant till 2018. Some recommended precautions to prevent mosquito bites are listed below:
Wear insect repellent, especially during the day and early evening
Cover the body as much as possible. In order to avoid overheating, wear the light-coloured clothing
Treat clothing with insecticide
Use air conditioner and keep your windows closed
Sleep in a mosquito net

America’s Initiative to Combat the Virus
On 9th of February, 2016, President Obama asked Congress for $1.8 billion contingency fund to contain this virus. The amount will be spent on various mosquito control programs, improvement of health for the low-income pregnant women, vaccine research and awareness for this disease. The spending proposal of Obama does include $355 million as foreign aid to South America, the Caribbean and Central America where this virus is spreading exponentially.

Blood Pressure Causes and Treatment

Summary: Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of arteries. Poor handling of high blood pressure gives rise to serious health complications, such as stroke and heart attack. The present blog talks about high blood pressure, its symptoms, complications, the risk factors and the tips to prevent it.     


Before knowing about high blood pressure, it is essential to know about blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. High blood pressure occurs when this force becomes too high. High blood pressure is also known as hypertension. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower are your arteries, higher becomes your blood pressure. Process of checking of blood pressure is the same in the persons of every age group—be it child, teen, adult or aged.
Some people may show symptoms of high blood pressure, while some may not show any symptoms. But, even without any symptoms, blood vessels and heart keep on getting damaged. Poor handling of high blood pressure over years gives rise to serious health complications, such as stroke and heart attack.

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure:
  • Severe headaches
  • Severe anxiety
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nosebleeds
  • Blurred vision
  • Swollen Abdomen
  • Fatigue
  • Oedema
  • Chest Pain and Angina
  • Dizziness, fainting and headaches
High blood pressure exerts excessive pressure on the walls of artery. This pressure damages the blood vessels. If the situation is not controlled even at this level, organs also start getting damaged. In fact, higher is the blood pressure and longer it remains ignored, greater damage it does.
Health Complications Arising out of High Blood Pressure
·         Heart Attack or Stroke: High blood pressure makes arteries hard and thick. This is a condition known as atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis may lead to serious health complications, such as stroke, heart attack, etc.

·         Heart Failure: It becomes difficult for heart muscles to pump blood against the higher pressure in blood vessels. Resultantly, heart muscles become thick. The thickened heart muscles fail to pump enough blood to cater to body’s needs and requirements. Eventually it leads to heart failure.

·         Aneurysm: High blood pressure make blood vessels weak. It causes bulge in the blood vessels forming an aneurysm. If any rupture occurs in aneurysm, it becomes life-threatening.

·         Trouble with Memory or Understanding: Poor control of high blood pressure negatively affects the body’s ability to think, learn and remember.

·         Metabolic Syndrome: This syndrome is not about a single disorder. Rather, it is a cluster of syndrome that includes increased waist circumference, high triglycerides, reduction in good cholesterols (High Density Lipoprotein) and high insulin level. These conditions may give rise to diabetes, heart disease and stroke.


The Risk Factors

·         Family History: If one person in a family is diagnosed with high blood pressure, other members also become susceptible to it.

·         Heavy Drinking: Drinking too much alcohol negatively affect blood pressure and damages heart. A woman should not take more than one drink in a day. In case of man, more than twice drinks a day is not moderate.


·         Age: Risk of high blood pressure becomes more with age. Men are at more risk than women. While women develop high blood pressure after 65 years of age, men can develop it in early middle age, or till the time they reach the age of 45.

·         Sedentary Lifestyle: People who lead a sedentary lifestyle, are more likely to develop high blood pressure than the people who lead active lifestyle. Very less or no physical activity also increases the risk of becoming overweight.


·         Tobacco Consumption: Apart from raising blood pressure temporarily, the chemicals in tobacco damage the lining of the artery walls. Resultantly, artery becomes narrow.

·         Obesity: The more you put weight, the more blood you require to supply oxygen and nutrients to the tissues. Since volume of blood circulated through the blood vessels increases, pressure on artery walls increases.

Tips to prevent High Blood Pressure: Lifestyle changes can help prevent high blood pressure. Some of these changes are given below:
Ø Take Healthy Foods: Take vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish, poultry and low-fat dairy foods. Stay away from saturated fat.

Ø Decrease Salt Intake: 1500 milligrams a day is sufficient for the people of 50 years or older and the individuals who have hypertension, diabetes or CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). Otherwise healthy people can take 2300 mg per day or less. You should avoid restaurant foods to minimize the intake of salt.
Ø Maintain a Healthy Weight: If you are obese, cut your calories’ intake and maintain a healthy weight. It will lower your health complications by controlling your high blood pressure. Losing even 2-3 kilograms will lower the risk of blood pressure.
Ø Keep Active Lifestyle: Active lifestyle will help you lower your blood pressure, keep your weight under control, lower your stress and minimize your risk of several health complications.
Ø Limit Alcohol: If you are not disciplined, when it comes to taking alcohol, it is time to introspect. Take alcohol in moderation. Even if you are otherwise healthy, consumption of alcohol in excess will raise your blood pressure.

Ø Quit Smoking: Consumption of tobacco damages blood vessel walls and contribute to the hardening of the arteries. In order to ward off these complications, quit smoking.

Ø Control Blood Pressure During Pregnancy: If you are a pregnant woman with high blood pressure, discuss with your doctors the measures to control it.

cardiomyopathy Symptoms and Treatment

Summary: Cardiomyopathy is a medical term that is characterized by damage to the heart muscles. Weak heart muscles make heart weak and cause heart failure. The present blog talks about its symptoms, causes, types, treatment and prevention.
The medical term cardiomyopathy is made up of three words, namely cardio, myo and pathy. The word cardio means “the heart”, myo means “related to muscles” and pathy means “disorder”. The term cardiomyopathy is used in order to describe a range of diseases of the heart muscles. Damage to the heart muscles results into weakening of the heart that eventually cause heart failure.

Symptoms of Cardiomyopathy:

Ø Fatigue
Ø Shortness of Breath
Ø Lethargy
Ø Chest Pain
Ø Feeling Lightheaded or Fainting
Ø Swelling due to fluid deposition in the legs and abdomen
Ø Increased Palpitations
Ø Sudden Death

Some patients even do not show any symptoms.


Causes of Cardiomyopathy

Alcohol Consumption:  If alcohol consumption goes beyond moderate dose, it causes cardiomyopathy over a period of time.
Diabetes: Some chronic health conditions, such as diabetes and thyroid disease give rise to cardiomyopathy.
Connective Tissues Disorders: Sometimes, the connective tissues disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis also trigger the disease.
Viral Infections: Though not all viral infections cause cardiomyopathy, but some viral infections do affect heart, causing cardiomyopathy.
Hereditary Factors: If anyone in the family has cardiomyopathy, others become susceptible to this disease.
Pregnancy: Pregnancy is also one of the precursors of the disease. It gets developed during pregnancy.
Drug Use: The use of cocaine, anabolic steroids and amphetamines may increase the susceptibility of the disease.
Side Effects of Cancer Treatment: Side effects of cancer treatment, such as Chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy may increase the possibility of some types of cardiomyopathy.
Nutritional Deficiencies: Inadequate intake of essential nutrients may give rise to cardiomyopathy.
Types of Cardiomyopathy
Ø Dilated Cardiomyopathy: It is a case of enlarged heart. This is the most common form of cardiomyopathy. In dilated cardiomyopathy, the chambers of the heart become bigger in size and the heart muscles stretch. The enlarged heart becomes unable to contract and pump adequate blood as per the needs and requirements of the body parts. That results into irregular rhythms and disturbances of the electrical activity of the heart. More than 30 per cent of the people with dilated cardiomyopathy inherit it.

Ø Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy: In Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy, the heart muscles become thick, making difficult for the heart to fill with blood. If the condition is not treated on time, it results into further thickening of the ventricles and gives rise to the obstruction of the blood flow from the heart, disrupting the ability of the heart to pump properly. More than 50 per cent of all its cases are hereditary. This form of cardiomyopathy causes cardiac arrest in teenagers and young adults.

Ø Restrictive Cardiomyopathy: It is a case of stiff heart. This form of condition is least common and most of the times its causes are unknown. In this condition, the muscles of the lower chambers of the heart, i.e. ventricles become stiff, making it tough for them to fill with blood between heartbeats.

Ø Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy: This condition is rare. It affects the people in the age group of 20 to 40 years. This is the condition that is characterised by development of scar tissues in the heart muscles, causing irregular heartbeat. It is a medical condition known as arrhythmias. It is often inherited.


Treatment of Cardiomyopathy
Type of cardiomyopathy, individual symptoms and degree (severe or mild) of complications decide the medicines used to treat cardiomyopathy. The medicines may include the following:
Ø Anti-arrhythmic to regulate heart rhythm
Ø Anti-hypertensive medicines to control blood pressure
Ø Diuretics to prevent the reduction of fluid deposition in heart failure
Ø Anticoagulants to help reduce risk of blood clots

Surgery and Implant
Pacemaker: A pacemaker is a small device. It is placed in the chest or abdomen to help control abnormal heart rhythms. Pacemaker uses electrical pulses to direct the heart to beat at a normal rate.
Implantable defibrillators: Those who are at risk of dangerous arrhythmia, get treated with implantable defibrillators. Arrhythmia is a heart-rhythm problem. It occurs when the electrical impulses to the heart that coordinate heartbeat, does not work properly.
Heart Transplant: If cardiomyopathy is left untreated, it reaches at an advance stage and severe heart failure occurs. To treat this condition, doctors may consider a heart transplant.
Tips to Prevent Cardiomyopathy
Ø Quit Smoking: If you are addicted to smoking, stop it at the earliest possible time.
Ø Avoid Alcohol: Though moderate dose of alcohol will not put you in danger, but if your alcohol intake is more than it should be, be mindful of its dose.
Ø Exercise: It will be wrong to say that exercise is not good in cardiomyopathy. However, you should talk to your doctor and decide your exercise accordingly.
Ø Maintain Active Lifestyle: Sedentary lifestyle gives rise to heart diseases. Therefore, maintain active lifestyle by doing most of your office and home-bound work on your own.
Ø Take Healthy Food: Stick to fresh, seasonal foods and avoid salty, fatty and highly processed foods.
