Strange Patterns In The Clouds Of Venus Are Affecting Its Weather

Venus is a hellish toxic world, with a surface under high pressure and temperatures hot enough to melt lead and zinc. Venus’s thick clouds and strange weather has fascinated scientists for decades, and now a particular feature in one has been revealed to have a big effect on the other. Unlike on Earth, most solar radiation is absorbed by the higher clouds of Venus. Within those clouds, there are strange dark patches made up of a mysterious substance, which scientists call an “unknown absorber” because it absorbs certain specific ultraviolet light from the Sun. The absorber is not evenly distributed and these variations create hotter regions in the atmosphere, which affects both local areas as well as the large-scale global …

5 Random Things To Know About Rhinoplasty | Betches

Rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a “nose job,” is probably the most infamous form of plastic surgery. From rich teenagers getting them as a sweet sixteen gift to celebrities getting them done under the guise of a “deviated septum” (looking at you, Jax Taylor) it’s a relatively common practice. When it comes to nose jobs, you probably know someone who has had one, have had one yourself, have thought about getting one, or know someone who has thought about getting one. They’re pretty common—a recent statistic found 225,000 Americans are getting rhinoplasty each year. Since this procedure is so prevalent, we consulted with Dr. Yael Halaas—a double board certified plastic surgeon and expert in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, along …

Why dont doctors trust women? Because they dont know much about us | Gabrielle Jackson

The medical community have known for a century that women are living in constant pain. Theyve done nothing about it Its frustrating to have questions that dont get answered. Its altogether disturbing to find out that those questions havent even been asked. When I was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 23, I didnt know enough to ask the right questions. I assumed my gynaecologist had all the answers, and listened carefully to his thoughtful explanations. I thought I knew it all. Or at least that he knew it all. But I was wrong. It was only after more than a decade of feeling weak, second-rate, wimpy and affect at least 50 million US women alone. I discovered that some of …

30 Of The Most Embarrassing Situations People Have Gotten Themselves Into

When Twitter user One study says there’s a (somewhat) quick way to move past life’s most terrible moments. The answer: focusing on everything about the memory except the way it made you feel. “Sometimes we dwell on how sad, embarrassed, or hurt we felt during an event, and that makes us feel worse and worse. This is what happens in clinical depression—ruminating on the negative aspects of a memory,” lead researcher Florin Dolcos wrote. #3 It’s quite different than suppressing the bad memory, which is usually effective only in short term and increases chances of anxiety and depression in the long run.

Guy Gets A Message From Nigerian Pretending To Be His Grandma, Decides To Have Some Fun

We’ve all come into contact with one or two scammers in our lives. I remember when I was 12, and I got a phone message saying I won 2,000 dollars. I was over the moon. For like a minute.

Im A Stay-At-Home Dad And I Wanted To Make My Daughters Room Special, So I Painted Murals In Their Room (19 Pics)

I’m a stay at home dad of 2 beautiful little girls (almost 3 and 6). We moved closer to my in-laws about a year ago, while we love the house it was built in the early ’80s. The vast majority of the walls have that hard “sand” texture on them so going the vinyl cling route wasn’t an option. I used to be fairly artistic years ago, but I’ve not really painted anything outside of changing wall colors for probably 20+ years since high school (especially nothing close to this scale). I’ve always wanted to and thought about painting a mural for my kids someday. Anywho… this is what I came up with. I used a cheap LED projector that …
