WORLD OCTOPUS DAY @ 8th OCT 2018

Image
Octopi have took inhabited the world a long time before us about 256 years ago. The octopus is a soft-bodied, eight-limbed mollusc of the order Octopoda. Around 300 species are recognised, and the order is grouped within the class Cephalopoda with squids, cuttlefish, and nautiloids. Like other cephalopods, the octopus is bilaterally symmetric with two eyes and a beak, with its mouth at the center point of the 8 limbs. The soft body can rapidly alter its shape, enabling octopuses to squeeze through small gaps. They trail their eight appendages behind them as they swim.
Fun facts:
1. A 50-pound octopus can squeeze through a hole only 2 inches in diameter. If their beak fits, they can get   through.
2. They are about 90 percent muscle.
3. You can tell a male octopus from a female by looking at the tip of its third arm on the right (starting between the eyes and going clockwise). Males have a special tip on this arm that has no suckers on the last few inches. This specialized tip is visi…

Virus Day @ 3rd OCT 2018

Image
“VIRUS”… Not such a pleasant word right. We always believe that viruses are pathogens that invade our body. Most of the diseases around are caused by viruses. Viruses are present everywhere even in the air you breath.

We often get confused between bacteria and a virus. A big difference is that bacteria are living things while viruses are considered to be non living. Got a shock? But when viruses attack or invade a host cell they are called to be living because they can reproduce at that time.
How were viruses discovered? In 1884, the French microbiologist Charles Chamberland invented a filter, known today as the Chamberland filter or Chamberland–Pasteur filter that has pores smaller than bacteria. Thus he could pass a solution containing bacteria through the filter and completely remove them from the solution. In the early 1890s the Russian biologist Dmitri Ivanovsky used this filter to study what became known as the tobacco mosaic virus. At the same time several other scientists proved…

MY JOURNEY

Image
Wow !!! I cannot really believe that I have started writing blogs.I have always wondered, kids of my age, do so many wonders. Some become authors,some scientists,and a lot more.Even I wanted to do something extraordinary. So,I had started writing a book but sadly could not finish it.(it’s still lying incomplete in my tab). The pioneer of this journey was my mom. She came up with the idea to start writing blogs.She had a new concept which was to put days of the year since each day marks a special event we used to write about that event.

I spent few days thinking doing research and I thought it might be a good idea.So I gave it a try.I wrote my first blog and I was really happy. Got good comments which inspired me for the second blog and then I decided to write few lines everyday.

In my second blog on lions day I got one comment as ” I have seen lions very closely both in person and in Tv”.Even I wanted to see lions in person.Surprisingly, the next day my dad came up to know about a nearb…
