How do Plants Know When to Flower?

A flowering plant is determined by the season. There are plants that bloom in spring, fall, or summer. 

Now, scientists believe they have found the answer to the riddle unanswered for 80 years, which is how plants know when they have to evolve. Knowledge of the particulars right time to flowering plants can be very important in order to reproduce successfully. It involves the sun's rays, a series of molecular processes, and the plant circadian clock

Understanding how flowering
works in Arabidopsis should
lead to a better understanding
of how the same genes work
in crop plants such as rice.

With a simple understanding of flowering in plants, such as Arabidopsis, researchers can also learn how genes work in a complex food crops, eg rice, wheat, and barley. 

Takato Imaizumi, biology professor of University of Washington, says this research could be a tool to manipulate the flowering time. "We probably can increase yields by accelerating or delaying the time," Imaizumi said. 

At certain times of the year, the plant produces Flowering Locus T protein in the leaves that triggers flowering. Once the protein is formed, the substance that will leave the leaves to the shoot, the cells have differentiated into leaf or flower. In the area, protein molecular changes by sending the cell into the path that would be flowers. 

Changes in day length at a particular season tells the plant that the season has changed. Like humans, plants also have such a circadian clock and is used to measure changes in day length. This clock synchronizes the biological processes in the human body, animals, to plants for 24 hours. 

Imaizumi also investigated FKF1 protein, are thought to play an important role in the mechanism that makes the seasons changing and the plants know when to flower.

and Young Hun Song in the
Takato plant lab at  the University
of Washington. (Picture from:  
http://www.eurekalert.org/)
"The FKF1 photoreceptor protein we've been working on is expressed in the late afternoon every day, and is very tightly regulated by the plant's circadian clock," Imaizumi said. "When this protein is expressed during days that are short, this protein cannot be activated, as there is no daylight in the late afternoon. When this protein is expressed during a longer day, this photoreceptor makes use of the light and activates the flowering mechanisms involving Flowering Locus T. The circadian clock regulates the timing of the specific photoreceptor for flowering. That is how plants sense differences in day length."

This system keeps plants from flowering when it's a poor time to reproduce, such as the dead of winter when days are short and nights are long.

The new findings come from work with the plant Arabidopsis, a small plant in the mustard family that's often used in genetic research. They validate predictions from a mathematical model of the mechanism that causes Arabidopsis to flower that was developed by Andrew Millar, a University of Edinburgh professor of biology and co-author of the paper.

"Our mathematical model helped us to understand the operating principles of the plants' day-length sensor," Millar said. "Those principles will hold true in other plants, like rice, where the crop's day-length response is one of the factors that limits where farmers can obtain good harvests. It's that same day-length response that needs controlled lighting for laying chickens and fish farms, so it's just as important to understand this response in animals.

"The proteins involved in animals are not yet so well understood as they are in plants but we expect the same principles that we've learned from these studies to apply." *** [LIVESCIENCE | EUREKALERT! | TJANDRA | KORAN TEMPO 3896]

Otis Moss, III Wants Pastors of the Black Church To Support Barack Obama: What About Supporting God's Word Against Homosexuality?

After listening to this following video by Otis Moss, III, we wonder does He love God more than President Barack Obama.   As a man of God, wouldn't it be wise for Pastor Otis Moss, III to only encourage pastors of the black church to think about how God feels about homosexuality since He already informed us in His Word He opposes it.   All of us whom profess salvation already knows how God feels about homosexuality, so obviously it is dangerous for any pastor like Otis Moss, III and Pastor Jamal Bryant to try to persuade pastors of the black church to support President Barack Obama.   After listening to Otis Moss, III, it seems as though he has no fear of God, but more concerned about making sure President Barack Obama remains in office and is supported by black pastors. 

Remember what Bishop Earthquake Kelley said in his testimony about how when he was in heaven and he witnessed a huge tear drop coming from God, because He was not happy about the wickedness in the world?   We know God must be crying now, because we have preachers like Rev. Otis Moss, III more concerned about a black (bi-racial) man remaining the president over America while many souls are continuing to be lost, dying daily and on their way to eternal hell.  According to Mary K. Baxter's testimony, many of these souls who were in the lake of fire were gays and lesbians and you can hear Minister Baxter's entire testimony, here.    You see the average pastor of the black church are focusing on race and not on God's Word, which told us homosexuals would not enter into the Kingdom of heaven. Saints of God, when you listen to this following video, you will acknowledge we are living in dangerous times.   Back in the day, the average black preacher would be afraid to oppose God's Word and they would not even support a white man whom was the president, because of his race.   Now, we have a whole new breed of preachers in the black church whom are concentrating on satisfying humanity and not God's expectations for complete holiness.  They do not even think they will ever have to answer to God for not preaching holiness.  There ought to be such a fear of God among black clergy all over America when it comes to the subject of our president condoning same sex marriage, but for some strange reason they yearn to persuade those whom oppose sin to support him, regardless of what God's commandments says against homosexuality.


In these evil days, it is very dangerous for those of us whom are sanctified followers of Jesus Christ to remain in the average black church.   For if we are foolish to remain in the pews of a sanctuary that affirms homosexuality, hell will be reserved for us.   However, if we are wise to completely follow Jesus Christ above our pastor of the black church, abstain from sin, then the Kingdom of heaven will be our eternal place of rest.

Scriptures Against Homosexuality

  •  1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 

  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 
  • Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." 
  • Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

Pastor Oliver White May Close St. Paul UCC, Because of Losing Members Over His Support For Gay Marriage: Another Victory for God's Black Church


Rev. Oliver White, pastor of St. Paul United Church of Christ has not only lost a lot of members, but his church has also lost a lot of money and owes about $200,000 for a loan.   This is a victory for the body of Christ, because this shows that God still has some true warriors whom will not allow gay affirming ministers to lure them into a pathway of deception. There is no reason for any pastor to receive tithes and offerings unless teaching the right gospel and even living right in their own personal lives.  In our opinion, Pastor Oliver White and many others whom have changed into gay affirming ministers are not called by God to preach and should voluntarily cease the pulpit, so souls can receive the right spiritual food.
 
Every time there is a pastor like Rev. Oliver White whom is in the news, because he or she is losing church members, after changing the gospel into a gay affirming theology, it is a victory for God's Kingdom.  We ought to begin praising God, because these souls whom left St. Paul United Church of Christ are simply showing they are not going to be deceived by anyone.  They are also revealing that they are much different than the 900 people whom were deceived into following Rev. Jim Jones to Guyana to drink poisonous Kool-Aid, several years ago.  This is indeed a time for a celebration and all of you whom are gullible to follow this new age deception within the black church should take heed to this example.   It is time for pastors of the black church to realize that they do not have a right to change the original gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is time for pastors whom have changed their churches into gay affirming ministries to realize, God is not going to allow the alleged cult movement to destroy His people.   No pastor has any right to deceive anyone into turning away from God's commandments.   God has never condoned sin and will never change His mind.

Allegedly, Pastor Oliver White's church was in debt once before, because he was already losing members several months ago and a Texas church bailed him out.   However,
what will occur now?   Money is not going to keep the doors of a church open, if it is not God's House.  For each and every church building that opens, it is supposed to be for Jesus Christ, not for a pastor's own personal gain for recognition.   Pastor White and no other pastor should ever think they have the authority to stand up in a pulpit and lure souls into believing it is okay to be gay.   The Word of God says it is wrong to be gay and if that is what was preached at first, it makes no sense to turn it around just to agree with gays and lesbians within society.   The false notions and myths of society has gotten a lot of souls in hell beneath the universe and they are yet screaming to escape.   Therefore, is changing the gospel of Jesus Christ into a gay affirming theology worth keeping the doors of a church building open?   No, absolutely not.   Too many souls are at stake and God would not allow the former members of Pastor Oliver White's church to be deceived into being followers of humanity and not followers of His Word.    Saints of God, it is time out for the black church or any other church to stop controlling people into following their gay affirming theology against God's Word.   Jesus is coming back and when He returns, He is coming for a righteous nation.   He is not necessarily coming back to get the entire nation of America.   God is not sending His Son to return to get these gay affirming pastors whom are trying to remain in the pulpit and preach what satisfies gays and lesbians.   Jesus is coming back for those very church members whom ceased Saint Paul UCC, because they refused to be misled by Rev. Oliver White. Wouldn't it be horrible for Pastor Oliver White to miss the rapture and all of those former church members be caught up with Jesus Christ?    There are many pastors in the black church of various denominations that are going to be left behind when Jesus returns, because they refuse to obey God and preach against sin and turn away from it in their own lives.  Remember our dear sister, Angelica Zambrano who went on a tour to hell was shown a vision by Jesus Christ and she saw what it will be like after the rapture comes.

Saints of God, it is time for us to avoid pastors like Rev. White and completely seek God more than ever before.   It's time out for following pastors just because they are black, but we must now be under a pastor whom is holy and righteous.  It does not matter what color he or she is, because many pastors in the black church and even other pastors of other races are risking their souls for eternal hell, just to be excepted by the gay affirming circle whom refuse to completely say yes to God and oppose homosexuality.

St. Paul UCC church at brink of closing over gay-marriage stand 

Article by: ROSE FRENCH , Star Tribune

The Rev. Oliver White's support for same-sex marriage set off an exodus. Now, his UCC church is on the verge of closing its doors.

The Rev. Oliver White knew not everyone at his St. Paul church was going to agree with his support for gay marriage.

But he never imagined that nearly two-thirds of his congregation would leave.

And now, Grace Community United Church of Christ, the only UCC church in Minnesota with a predominantly black congregation...Read full article, here.

Why are Storm Clouds Affect Atmospheric Chemistry?

Anvil-shaped thunderstorm cloud is not something you want to see when flying. But a group of Scientists United States would deploy cloud-finding mission by deploying two aircraft DC-8 and Gulfstream V. Experiments Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry was conducted to investigate how large the effect of thunder storm clouds on atmospheric chemical composition.
This is a NASA DC-8 on which approximately 100 researchers were aboard in pursuit of the perfect setup for severe thunderstorms. (Picture from: http://adayinthelifeofageek.wordpress.com/)
To investigate, the researchers had to fly directly into the cloud cumulonimbus. After doing some flight training and other preparations, the two DC-8 aircraft and the Gulfstream V were lifted on 18 and May 19, 2012. To record all necessary data, the team set up 27 special instruments that will take a sample when the plane entered the storm clouds. In flight, the aircraft in an L-shaped patterns at different heights around the cell thunderstorm clouds.

On May 18, 2012 flight, the plane flew over the area of ​​northeast Colorado and southwest Nebraska. The next day, the second aircraft to the west and southwest Oklahoma City. Cloud tops are shaped base with a height of 13.700 meters.
An actual picture taken from the DC-8 showing the formation of the cumulonimbus clouds that make up a thunderstorm. It clearly depicts the anvil, overshooting tops breaking through the tropopause, as well as the clear updraft which when it is strong enough can be a major factor in hail production. (Picture from: http://adayinthelifeofageek.wordpress.com/)
DC-8 mission manager Frank Cutler had time to capture the image of anvil clouds from the plane. Clouds form the basis for forging this metal, are formed when cold air masses and dry air mass pushed into the moist and warm. Cold air is heavier work like a plow atmosphere and warm air pushed up into the clouds of thunderstorms.

High winds can make the top of the cloud becomes flat as the foundation and the bottom surface is generally very dark cloud. Such clouds can result in very bad weather, including hail and tornadoes.

Scientists suspect that the storm updraft occurs when air moves up to bring the chemicals that produce ozone, an important greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. "We're also trying to take environmental samples updraft to learn what is really happening chemically," says Cutler. "The mission is also studying lightning generated by a thunder storm." *** [LIVESCIENCE | TJANDRA | KORAN TEMPO 3893]

Brammo Launch Powerfull Electric Motorcycle

Performance electric motorcycles today was already approaching a motorcycle with gasoline fuel. The electric motorcycle maker, Brammo launch two variants of electric motorcycle the Empulse and Empulse R. This electric motorcycle claimed has a top speed of 161 km/h and can travel a distance of 170 km for one-time charge.

These electric bikes also feature all-new Integrated Electric Transmission (IET) with six levels of speed and equipped with a water cooling system. The IET is a mechatronic propulsion unit that was specifically designed to work with the Empulse’s electric motor, clutch, and gear shift.

Brammo’s reasoning for the gear shifting was to bring the electric-powered bike closer to the feeling of a traditional internal combustion engine. Brammo claims it even has the characteristics of engine braking when down-shifting. Incredibly the engine can produce 54 horsepower and 46.5 lb/ft of torque.
Brammo Empulse. (Picture from: http://www.gizmag.com/)
The power is provided by Brammo’s own Brammo Power Lithium-Ion Battery with a life of 1,500 cycles to 80% capacity and two different levels of charging. Level 1 fully recharges the battery at a maximum of eight hours while Level 2 maximum charging time is less than half that at 3.5 hours. Every ten minutes of charge adds up to 7 km of riding range.
The key to the Brammo Empulse's higher performance claims comes from the improved energy densities in its battery systems, which range from 6 to 10 kWh. (Picture from: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/)
When fully charged the performance levels offer enough to get the new bike over 161 km/h. Claimed ranges include 170 km through the city, 80 km on the highway, and 100 km combined. Two operating modes are provided through a switch on the handlebar. Normal mode limits power by reducing max current delivered to the motor. Sport mode provides maximum performance to both acceleration and top speed. Under deceleration, energy is returned to the battery to extend the riding range. 

Brammo cover the entire body of Empulse with plastic, and carbon fiber are used to wrap the headlights and rear fender so that the overall weight to 200 kg. Making these Brammo's two machines feature the styling aspects of a modern day sport bike minus the exhaust.
Brammo motorcycle manufacturer will sell Empulse variance at a price $ 16,995 and $ 18,995 for Empulse R. Back to that price tag. It's steep, no doubt about it, but we think with good reason. Besides the big 10.2 kWh battery pack and breakthrough six-speed gearbox, your hard-earned cash is buying you top-notch components in places that count. That means Brembo brakes, Marchesini wheels wrapped in Avon 3D Ultra Sport rubber, Marzocchi forks up front and a Sachs shock out back. Not at all shabby, and since quality in these parts can save your life, you can consider them a worthy investment. *** [MOTORCYCLE-USA.COM | OVI | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 18052012]

Pastor Tony Smith On Barack Obama Homosexual Marriages: Black Church Not In The Position To Oppose Same Sex Marriages


Pastor Tony Smith of The Way of God Church of the Lord Jesus allegedly says the church overall has no right to publicly oppose same sex marriages.   In a way, we agree with him.   Yes, we agree there are many hypocrites in the black church.  He mentions on this following video, preachers like Bishop Eddie Long who previously marched against same-sex marriages was later accused of having multiple affairs with young men.   Pastor Tony Smith went onto mention about all the pastors whom impregnate women and mess around with young boys in the black church.   Of course, we agree there are too many problems to deal with like hypocrites whom are gay while preaching against homosexuality.   He brings up a good point because sin in sin, we have to many problems to deal with, to deal with the issue of same sex marriage.  Although, we agree with Pastor Tony Smith's message on this following video clip, we still partly disagree and feel those of us whom are not hypocrites have a right to publicly speak out against same sex marriage, along with other sins God does not condone.


Pastor Tony Smith is so right. This is no doubt the very reason why the body of Christ has lost its power, because of not only so many hypocrites in the black church, but the church overall.   There are too many problems that have not been dealt with over the years and this is why is does not surprise us we now have a president who is so powerful to change the values of this country and many pastors are afraid to disagree with him.   Specifically, the black church has been so hypocritical, many pastors have a lot of repenting to do.   We also feel because of celebrity preachers being so focused on fame and fortune, there has been a lack of power to oppose same sex marriage.   Because of all of the carnality within the black church and other churches across the country, many pastors have failed to fear God and be controlled by the masses whom would rather yield to President Obama's expectancy of supporting gay marriage.  Pastor Tony Smith also mentions the drug activities in this country and how the church has not done its' job to fight that issue.  He brought up a lot of issues that reveals why many of these preachers within the black church have been so weak to stand up for what is right.  For instance, the black church has established homosexuality in many ways, by allowing them to control different administrations within the ministry.  Even ministers like Pastor Jamal Bryant, allegedly claimed he agreed with civil unions, but not same sex marriage reveal why many of them have no right to publicly oppose it.   Just watch the video and you tell us what you think about the points Pastor Tony Smith brought up.   However, we deeply feel many of us yet should publicly oppose same sex marriage among other sins the black church has failed to deal with.

Ex- Lesbian Charlene Cothran’s Thoughts on Obama’s Gay Marriage Support

Ex Lesbian Charlene Cothran Speaks about Obama and Gay marriage


At this time, we feel the following statement about the President's support for gay marriage is a true and authentic one. Coming from a woman who lived the life as a lesbian for 30 years and helped initiate gay rights, she has been transformed and stands on the truth. At this hour she still stands tall and tells the absolute truth about what she thinks about Obama and his support for the LGBT community and gay marriage.
Just One Issue by Rev. Charlene Cothran
The President's statement supporting gay marriage is much more than 'just one issue' as many, especially Black leaders, want to claim.  It is a very deep SPIRITUAL [against natural law] issue.  His statement has catastrophically and irreversibly damaged future generations. Additionally, the President did NOT speak as an individual.  A sitting president of the most powerful nation in the world can never 'speak personally'.  He O.K.'d homosexual marriage in exchange for money and power.  He is not a minister but shamefully and deceitfully used the Holy Scripture to support his evil works.  He repulsively compared himself to Christ's sacrifice at Calvary.  No wonder he didn't seek advice from his pastor first.  He KNOWS that was improper but it SOUNDS good for his church-going voters. The trouble is NO ONE actually believes that he made his statement out of any kind of conviction but Money and power.  He raised more than 9 million dollars in the first 90 minutes after his announcement.  That is NOT a coincidence.

Tony Perkins Open to Dinner at Home of Gay Couple: Is He Showing the Love of Christ and Letting His Guard Down?

Tony Perkins of Family Research Council allegedly admitted he and his wife will have dinner at this lesbian couple's house.  What is the point?   Yes, we know Jesus sat down with sinners, but He also told the prostitute and would not condemn her, to go away and sin no more in John 8:11.   Therefore, we are wondering is Tony Perkins yet a God-fearing man or is he going to let his guard down?   Will we continue to see him standing along side of holy men like Bishop Harry Jackson to combat this issue of same-sex marriage?  We hope and pray he will lead this lesbian couple to Jesus Christ, because many times, righteous like Tony Perkins can end up allowing Satanic forces to lead them, instead of being strong enough to win souls from Satan's territory.

You have to be very strong when you agree to sit in the midst of homosexuals or any other sort of sinners that have alleged similar satanic strongholds.   So, if a gay or lesbian person invite you to dinner, knowing you disagree with their lifestyle, would it be to prove they have a wholesome family just like a heterosexual married couple or would it be to persuade you to accept homosexuality and to no longer speak out against it?   Think about it, this could be a set-up. 

Therefore, it would be very wise for Tony Perkins to not just take his wife with him to dinner, but also another minister, so he can pray with this lesbian couple, because the Devil has got all sorts of schemes to continue his plan to win souls into eternal hell.   We will pray for Tony Perkins that he seeks God about this decision he has already made to visit the home of this lesbian couple.   This visit should be nothing, but to show them the love of Christ and and if they will listen, he should be able to point biblical scriptures that reveal God's disagreement with homosexuality.

Tony Perkins Open to Dinner at Home of Gay Couple

Conservative Christian leader Tony Perkins of Family Research Council in Washington said he is willing to dine at the home of a married lesbian couple, who expressed their desire to "open up his heart" to the love that is present in their family.

Perkins sent a statement to CNN on Monday which read, "My wife and I will be glad to respond when we receive the invitation to find a time that works."

Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of a gay rights group called Family Equality Council, sent a letter to Perkins, inviting him to have dinner at her home with her same-sex spouse and twin 10-year-old boys. The invite was sent after Perkins...Read full article, here.

Did Pastor Marvin Winans Have Arrest Warrant Issued on Him?

Pastor Marvin Winans Arrest Warrant


Pastor Marvin Winans Had Arrest Warrant Issued on Him When Carjacked

This is just a shame! A prominent pastor and longtime gospel singer like Marvin Winans allegedly has not been taking care of his business. According to the Detroit News, the good pastor was a wanted man. Marvin Winans actually had an active warrant out for his arrest when he was carjacked.

While many Detroit news stations were being prideful and boastful when they covered the news on this well known singer and pastor, they now have to report that their 'man' wasn't so upstanding.

News reports also stated:

Marvin reportedly lost his driving privileges on May 9th after failing to pay 2 tickets issued back in December ... one for impeding traffic and the other from a previous driving on a suspended license incident.

Pastor Mack Randall Wolford dies hours after he's bitten by a rattlesnake


For many years, various pastors have taken advantage of this scripture found in Mark 16:18, which states: 'They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.'  They forget about the scripture in Luke 4:12 that says, 'And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.' God wants us to use common sense and not test him.  Having faith in God is much different than testing God.   For instance, people test God in different ways, some live in sin and think God will enter the gates of heaven when they die and so it was the same with this minister Pastor Mack Randall and even his father whom tried to prove before their congregation that Mark 16:18 is true.   However, the scripture of trusting God against anything that tries to harm you is true, but we are never supposed to purposely place ourselves in that situation to get bitten by a serpent or in any other dangerous circumstance. 



Allegedly, we have seen Jentezen Franklin on his national televised program, Kingdom Connections behave the same way in front of his parishioners.  He held a python as a demonstration of being controlled by sin.   Although, we understood the point, we also know that any type of snake is evil and cannot even be trusted for a demonstration.   All snakes are a symbol of the Devil, because of how it lured Eve to control Adam to eat the poisonous forbidden fruit in the beginning of time.  Therefore, we should not be afraid of one, but never purposely hold one to prove God's power.  

Rev. Jim Jones of The Peoples Temple was another minister whom tempted God by holding a rattlesnake in front of his followers. 

In the case of Mack Randall Wolford and his father, it is very sad they took that scripture out of context without even realizing God does not want us to ever tempt him.  God does not have to be proven to be powerful and there is a great possibility, He gets offended whenever man or woman test Him.  Therefore, Wolford nor his father could only be protected for so long.

How Long Will the Earth Recovered From the Apocalypse?

Around 250 million years ago, the earth really end. Ninety-six percent of marine species disappeared. On land, 70 percent of vertebrates and most insects die, including some species of dinosaurs.
This photo from NASA's Suomi NPP satellite shows the Eastern Hemisphere of Earth in "Blue Marble" view. The photo, released Feb. 2, 2012, is a companion to a NASA image showing the Western Hemisphere in the same stunning detail. This photo was taken on Jan. 23. (Picture from: http://www.livescience.com/)
This period is known as the era of the Permian-Triassic mass extinction. Recent research has found the theory that it takes 10 million years for the return of life. The research is published in the journal Nature Geoscience May 27, 2012 edition.

"Life seems back to normal when another crisis hit and set back the life," says Michael Benton, a member of a team of researchers from the University of Bristol in England. Carbon crisis, he said, repeatedly occur. "The condition eventually became normal again after 5 million years or more."

The researchers have not found a definite cause of mass extinctions in the period known as The Great Dying. Apparently, there are three stages of the possibilities and combinations of a number of factors. Some research suggests that global warming plays a crucial role. The incident was likely triggered by massive volcanic eruptions.

The research team analyzed previous research on post-Permian-Triassic period. Apparently, there are two reasons for the recovery time for 10 million that year. First, the research team said, the intensity of the crisis and the second is the dismal condition of the earth after the first wave of extinctions.

The results of recent studies suggest that the dismal condition of the Earth's environment to continue for 5-6 million years after the "Resurrection", in which there is repetition of the crisis of carbon, oxygen, and the adverse effects of global warming.

After a quiet environment, a more complex ecosystem begins to grow. At sea, the emerging biota, such as the ancestors of crabs and lobsters, as well as the first marine reptiles. They are form the basis of the future of modern ecosystems. *** [LIVESCIENCE | UWD | KORAN TEMPO 3894]

Sugar Can Make You Dumb?

Be careful for those who consume lots of sugar every day, because the results of a study from researchers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) revealed that consuming too much sugar can reduce the ability of the human brain.

The study shows how the consumption of high-fructose corn syrup continuously reduce cognitive impairment of rats. Some researchers fed two groups of mice that contain corn syrup with high-fructose content, a common ingredient in processed foods, as drinking water for six weeks. One group of mice were given intake of Omega-3 fatty acids, which promote brain power, in the form of linseed oil and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), while the other group did not.

Before the sugar drinks began, the rats were enrolled in a five-day training session in a complicated maze. After six weeks on the sweet solution, the rats were then placed back in the maze to see how they fared. “The DHA-deprived animals were slower, and their brains showed a decline in synaptic activity,” said Fernando Gomez-Pinilla, a professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

A high fructose diet slows the brain
and curbs memory and learning,

"Brain cells signal each other that they are problematic, thereby disrupting the ability of mice to clear it and remember the path they have learned six weeks before," he said. A closer study of the brains of mice revealed that mice that were not given DHA intake has also developed signs of insulin resistance, hormones, and blood sugar control, and regulate brain function.

In other words, eating too much of sugar can interfere with the ability of insulin to regulate how cells use and store sugar, which is required in the processing of thoughts and emotions. Corn syrup with high sugar levels commonly found in soda, spices, applesauce, baby food, snacks and other processed. The study was published in the Journal of Physiology.

While the study did not say what the equivalent might be for a human to consume as much high-fructose corn syrup as the rats did, researchers said it provides some evidence that metabolic syndrome can affect the mind as well as the body. "Our findings illustrate that what you eat affects how you think," said Gomez-Pinilla.

"Eating a high-fructose diet over the long term alters your brain's ability to learn and remember information. But adding omega-3 fatty acids to your meals can help minimize the damage." *** [AFP | SRI | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 24052012]

Black Churches Merge in Harlem To Start Gay and Lesbian Church: Minister Mary K. Baxter Saw Gays and Lesbians In Hell, Beware


There are a lot of pastors of the black church who think they are now free with open up the doors to gay affirming churches, but God is the same yesterday, today and forever just like the Bible told us in Hebrews 13:8.  God has never changed His mind about how He desires for men and women to be sexually active in matrimony.   He has never made it okay to be gay or lesbian.  We plead with you to change before it is everlasting too late.   These two churches merging in Harlem to expand their gay ministry is a sign that Jesus is on His way back, real soon.  These souls may think they are free, when in fact they are yet lost like the average sinner.


This minister of the gospel, Mary K. Baxter saw many souls burning in hell, it was not just homosexuals, but among the sinners screaming for Jesus to give them another chance were gays and lesbians.  This church merging in Harlem, N. Y. is a clear sign that black pride is over, because many black men and women have yielded their lusts to the pleasures of this world.   There is no longer a reason to say 'I'm proud to be black', but now we must only claim salvation.  We can no longer unite with a lost tribe whom opposes God's Word that does not condone homosexuality.  God's scriptures clearly forewarns us to abstain from sin and one of them is homosexuality.   These two pastors,
Vanessa M. Brown of Rivers of Living Faith and Joseph Tolton of Rehoboth are allegedly deceived by the enemy.  They both think they are building something big, when in fact this is an army against God, in our opinion.   Please read these following below scriptures, which clearly explains why Minister Mary K. Baxter saw millions of souls in eternal hell and among them were homosexuals pleading for their relatives not to go there.  We love you and God bless.




Scriptures Against Homosexuality

  •   1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 
  • Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."

  • Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

  • Romans 1:26-27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:" "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."

Go To The Videos and Listen Now To Mary K. Baxter's Testimony of how she saw gays and lesbians among other sinners in the lake of fire, hell.

A Rare Haven for Gay Men and Lesbians in Harlem

In a church nestled among a row of residential brownstones, parishioners clapped and danced as a woman began to testify.

“Aren’t you glad Jesus got up?” the woman, Twanna Gause, asked the predominantly black congregation, which responded with enthusiastic shouts of “Amen” and “Hallelujah.”
“He got up so I can come out,” Ms. Gause said, as worshipers hopped out of their seats and cheered in agreement. “He got up so you can come out.”
For black Christians who are gay and lesbian, church can be a daunting experience, where on any given Sunday they are taught that homosexuality...Read full article, here.

God Expects for the Black Church's Response to be Like Minister Farrakhan In Response to President Obama's Endorsing Gay Marriage


We have not heard many preachers of the black church make their sermons plain like Minister Louis Farrakhan.   This is possibly why God has allowed him to be here for a very long time.  Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke his mind out of love, but did not affirm homosexuality nor President Obama's endorsement of gay marriage.   This is the type preachers God expects to preach His Word, not those whom fear man, but only fear Him.   We have a lot of scary "so-call" apostles, bishops, pastors, evangelists and even saints in the pews of many black churches and God is angry.  He does not want those whom carry huge titles to act like scary little mice, God is tired of all of this nonsense in the black church.   It is time to preach out of love, but not give into Satan's command.  That's what he wants, the Devil wants you so soften up in your sermons, so he can win those souls in your pews into hell.   

Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke about previous occurrences in the Bible like Sodom.  He spoke about how God feels about homosexuality, something most black preachers today are afraid to do, for fear of losing church members.   Minister Farrakhan upheld God's Word in his courageous spirit and spoke out against sin that offends God.   Tell us, what happened to preachers in the black church?   How come they have been so afraid to stand up for righteousness like Minister Louis Farrakhan?  Why are black preachers turning on those righteous men and women of God whom refuse to condone homosexuality and gay marriage?  It is so obvious, these specific preachers already have a place in hell, because they would rather be recognized and well favored by the masses than to face persecution for Jesus Christ.   

There once was a time when preachers of the black church were known for molding a foundation for complete holiness, but they seem to have release morals and values in exchange for acceptance by those whom are focused on keeping the first black (bi-racial) president in office.   Many of these people whom idolize President Obama instead of worshiping God are simply preachers in the black church.  They have formed their own circles to combat righteous men and women of God without even realizing there is a higher authority they must to give an account to and His name is, Jesus Christ.   One of these days, each and every man and woman of God's Word will have to stand in judgement for how they responded to President Obama's support for gay marriage and God just may favor Minister Louis Farrakhan, a Muslim into His Kingdom over a preacher of the black church.   Minister Farrakhan seems to be more of a God-fearing spirit than the average minister within the black church and this is why he is yet strong while leading the nation of Islam.   

For all of you preachers of the black church whom fear man and not God, you need to read the rest of these verses about fearing Him.  Here are three for now.

'The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.'  Proverbs 1:7

'For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.'  I Chronicles 16:25-26

'Since they hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the Lord, since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke, they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.'  Proverbs 1:29-31

Objects Think With a Touch

Touché technology enables a smartphone mute himself, for example, if the owner put a finger on his lips. This technology developed by Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University is a form of capacitive touch sensing, the same principles that underlie the various types of touch screens that use a variety of smartphones. 
Touché can detect body gestures by using the body as a touch sensor. (Picture from: http://www.gizmag.com/)
The difference is, this technology not only monitors the electrical signal on one frequency, but also monitors the capacitive signals in a wide frequency range. Swept Frequency Capcitive Sensing (SFCS), trigger a reaction not only when there is a touch, but are able to recognize the complex configuration of the hand or body to the touch. 

Reported by NDTV Gadgets, SFCS can improve the usability of everyday objects by using only one sensing electrode. In fact, as is the case door handles or other conductive object, the object itself can function as a sensor without the need to be modified. Human body or water can be a sensor. 
According to Ivan Poupyrev, senior scientist at Disney Research, Pittsburgh, signal frequency sweeps have been used for decades in wireless communications, but there is no application in a touch interaction. "However, in experiments in our laboratory, we can improve. Sensitivity of the touch on various objects. When combined with gesture recognition techniques, Touché shows the recognition rate approaches 100 percent. It was demonstrated that this technology could be used to create new ways for humans to interact with various objects and the world at large, "said Poupyrev. *** [RIF | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 24052012]

Chewing Gum Initially With No Flavor

Who does not like chewing gum? Chewing gum has a characteristic that can be made a bubble and is sticky. With chewing gum, WE feel relaxed, help us digest food, calm the nerves, and can prevent seasickness.

Until now the history of chewing gum is still unclear, but for thousands of years, all over the world chewing gum plant as a snack or a clean mouth. Native of Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico was the first chewing gum. 

At that time they chew gum without flavor, namely cikili, white sap of the sapodila tree are boiled and hardened. This habit extends to the United States. Wrapped gum was first introduced in 1848. 

Chewing gum is made and a kind of pine tree sap, Something like chew by Native Americans centuries ago. John Curtis and his brother cultivate it and the gum called Maine Pure State of Spruce Gum. Although it tastes bitter, but still sell well because the price is very cheap. 

Curtis then gave a sense of paraffin. Manufacture of chewing gum is growing. In 1871, Thomas Adams received a patent for the manufacture of gum-making machine. In the 1890s, William Wrigley Jr. was initially create with the invention, Wrigley's Juice Fruit and Spearmint. This gum was launched in 1893. 

In 1906, Frank Fleer created chewing gum, although it is still very wet and easily slipped out of the mouth when chewed. In 1928, the company accountant, Walter Diemers constantly updating recipes and finally found a recipe for chewing gum. *** [SEPTI | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 24052012]
