The discovery of Troy City Myths That Previously Considered

Troy was an ancient city in the book of the Iliad, the famous epic written by ancient Greek poet Homer. Cities and civilization was once considered a myth and mirage, exactly the same stories about the civilization of Atlantis and Lemuria.
But that view eventually collapsed, began after a British scholar, Charles McClaren, in 1822 argued that Homer's Troy is likely to be in Turkey.

He pointed to a large mound called Hisarlik near Dardanelles, a narrow sea area that connects the Black Sea and the Aegean.

After that a German archaeologist, Heinrich Schiliemann, began to co
nduct excavations on the mound at Hisarlik in 1871. Only in 1873, Schliemann had found the remains of a very ancient city which he believes as the ruins of the civilization of Troy.

In addition, he and his crew also found a trove of gold and silver which he
called Priam treasure, according to the legend of King Priam of Troy is mentioned in the epic written by Homer, Iliad. But unfortunately, these treasures trove contraband instead he came out of Turkey to take him to Europe.

Nine Layers Troy City that has been ravaged In 1876, Schliemann returned to the excavation in the area of Mycenae, Greece. He found what he thought was the tomb of Agamemnon, a king of an enemy nation's epic Troy in the Iliad.

It was not until the 1890s, Wilhelm Dorpfield shows that the mound at Hisarlik region composed of nine layers of remains of the city. From this discovery we can know that the very old civilization of Troy's life, may be one era to the civilization of Atlantis.

He further said the possibility of civilization ended with perfect because this city was destroyed by the earthquake and devastating flood that occurred during nine times.

Every person who survived returned to build on the ruins of the city. Schliemann thought that Troy was said by Homer may be the Troy II (2), the ruins of the city layer to t
he second from the bottom. Meanwhile, according Dorpfield believes it is Troy to-VI.

Troy Period 5 according to the researchers may have come from the Bronze Age (about 3000 BC-1900 BC), whereas until now there has been no explanation regar
ding the intended Civilization keberapakah Troy Homer in his Iliad.

Civilizations, which certainly may be true comes from the era of the 2nd / 3rd namely when in the ice age 11,000 to 10,000 years ago.

Now, the puzzle of a civilization which was once considered merely a myth has been successfully solved and found the truth, just waiting for the development of searching the ruins of the civilization of Atlantis and Lemuria.

New Findings: Komodo Originating in the African Continent

Here's Proof That the Komodo Indonesia Derived From Africa ... !!? - Researchers from the University of Alberta, Canada, trying to find the mysterious relationship between the bones of ancient lizard found in Africa with the largest lizard found in Indonesia today, the Komodo dragon (Varanus komodoensis).

Biologist Alison Murray and Rob Holmes expressed a unique form of vertebrate fossils 33 million years old Africa is associated with dragons are believed to have existed since about 700,000 years ago.

"The fossil was found in the deserts of Africa. This fossil is certainly a lizard with the genus Varanus. There are more than 50 species of the genus Varanus are living today, including the Komodo dragon and other large lizards, "said Holmes.

Holmes said vertebrate fossils found in Africa is a lizard about a half meter long that can swim. These ancient Varanus are found in the area and was previously a small lake or river bottom. This fossil may be a key clue progenitor migration to the other side of the world.

"Are these animals live in water or surrounding land, we do not know. But, we know that some modern species of Varanus comfortable with a swim in clean water, "said Holmes.

"Of the approximately 100 million years ago until 12 million years ago, Africa is isolated, surrounded by the ocean. But, the animals made it out of Africa during this period, "said Murray. However, the researchers agreed not to swim will take lizards of Africa to Indonesia.

Murray said one of an unproven theory about how Varanus out of Africa is that over millions of years there are small or micro-plates mainland inhabited by a variety of fauna, moving from one place to another.

With this small land movements, the possibility of animals living in Africa have migrated to various parts of the world, including Indonesia.

In Indonesia, Komodo can be found on the island of Komodo, Rinca, Flores and Gili Motang. Komodo is one of the protected animals. International Union for Conservation of Nature categorize Komodo as an endangered species.

There are an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 Komodo dragons living in the wild. However, it is estimated there are 350 dragons only fertile females.

Inhaling Volcanic Ash Hazards to Your Health

Volcanic ash by the eruption of Mount Merapi continues to fly to different areas around the volcano. Communities should be aware of this because ash can damage the health of respiratory, eye, and skin.

Once erupted on Tuesday (26/10) and then, the eruption of Mount Merapi aftershocks continue to occur. Saturday (30/10) evening, again the most active volcano in the world issued a cloud of heat. Followed by the next eruption on Monday (1 / 11). Not only the victims of property and lives, the eruption of Mount Merapi, also have negative impacts on health.

Volcanic ash from Mount Merapi on the wind in any direction up to a lot of dangerous people around, especially on health. Volcanic ash is often called the fall volcanic sand or piroklastic. Piroklastic fall is falling volcanic materials are ejected into the air during the eruption.

It is said by experts from the lung health Omni Hospital Alam Sutera Tangerang, Dr. Iskandar Thahri SPP, in principle, when the eruption occurred, various kinds of rocks removed. "The content contained in volcanic ash is very varied," said the doctor graduated from the Faculty of Medicine, UB this.

Thahri say, if divided, then the content of the volcanic ash is composed of sand and rocks, the eruption products such as sulfur, are also a lot of hot clouds called wedhus trash. "Everything is very influential on health, particularly the lungs," he said.

Still described Thahri, while attacking the respiratory, effects that occur can vary. For example, when attacking the people who were previously healthy, it depends how much dust was attacking someone. "The position also determines how much ash into our breathing," he said.

Well, if the position of someone close to the volcanic ash which is then entered into the respiratory quite a lot, then it could make the airways swell because of the effects of heat. What happened, could have shortness of breath, even life-threatening.

If the cloud rises into the sky which then form a cloud of hot, then it could be caused acid rain which also endangers the health or the environment. The content of toxins in the hot clouds had to reduce soil fertility and death to animals. "However, if someone is in a position that far, automatic impact on health would be reduced or milder symptoms," he said.

Unlike the case with someone who has been troubled in the lungs, such as in patients with asthma for example. Generally, a person who has a history of asthma, the asthma will recurrence. "Volcanic Ash is one of the triggers of asthma attacks," he explained.

We all know that asthma is a disease that occurs constantly in nature that usually occurs when there are originators. In this case, volcanic ash into one powerful asthma trigger, so that usually occurs in people with asthma is asthma that can arise at any time during exposure of volcanic ash.

In addition to asthma, the volcanic ash also very dangerous for someone who already suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or disease caused a toxic gas or smoke and dangerous.

In Indonesia, known as gas or smoke the most dangerous is secondhand smoke, even the disease is referred to as a disease of cigarette smoke because of the dominance that is too large by cigarette smoke that cause the disease appear. More and more exposed to smoke, the higher the risk.

"Normal people just if exposed to strong enough so affected in his health. Especially people with a history of previous respiratory disease, "said Thahir.

Especially for children who are exposed to volcanic ash, they will be more sensitive than adults because of breathing in children are in growth. For example, if a child is spending too sweet, they will be faster cough being too sensitive on the food it consumes. For people who already have lung disease earlier, so no complaints, call the experts lung immediately.

It is said by a lung specialist from Friendship Hospital, Dr Agus Dwi Susanto SPP, volcanic ash is very disturbing to human health associated with various things, especially the lungs, eyes and skin.
"In general, the effects of volcanic ash in the lung will cause irritation because it is acidic," said faculty of the Division of Pulmonary and Environment Department of Pulmonology and Respiratory Medicine Faculty of medicine / RSCM.

Described by him, what happens is irritation of the respiratory tract top to bottom, such as coughing or sneezing. However, if further phase, it can cause sore throat, phlegm accumulation, shortness of breath, too recurrence in lung disease if a person has previously had a history of respiratory disease. "The disease can occur, if it happens constantly and for years," he said.

Still described Agus, due to the continuation of airway irritation that occurs is the increased risk of acute respiratory infections (ARI). As for the long-term effects, there could be accumulation of silica dust in the lung or the risk of silicosis.

Health impacts that occur outside the respiratory or lung health, including irritation of the eyes, such as watery eyes to blindness. The skin becomes affected part of the danger of volcanic, including irritation of itching, could create erosion, even the skin can be burned by volcanic ash. "Avoid exposure to volcanic ash and go far from the source of volcanic ash," the message.

Agus gave the message that people around who are exposed to volcanic ash to continue to protect themselves from hazards, such as using a mask that is safe. Select respirator masks that can filter out small particles so that dust can not enter from the side. "Masks are used to thin so it can not protect 100 percent. However, the masks still recommended as a means of personal protection, "said the doctor is a graduate of FK UI.

Sunrise Two Days Faster than usually in Greenland

The sun on top of Greenland, the island country that lies between the Arctic Sea and the Atlantic and eastern Canada, came two days ahead of schedule normally. According to scientists, the sun which usually rises at the beginning of this year is a sign of the end of a long night for one and a half months there.

But for the first time in the history of the sun visible in the horizon line at 1300 local time on 11 January. In fact, according to the schedule, the sun should shine on 13 January.

Rare occurrence is suspected because the top layer of surface ice in Greenland melts so that sunlight can penetrate early. This theory is based on a study of changes in the weather which proved that the level of the top layer of ice in Greenland began to decline.

Report of the World Meteorological Organization said that temperatures in Greenland rose about 3 degrees Celsius from the average temperature last year.

In addition, last December the air temperature is also warmer than usual and more rain fell than snow. Some have argued that the emergence of the sun the faster the two days it probably had something to do with outer space phenomena.

But, Wolfgang Lenhardt, director of the geophysics department of the Central Institute of Meteorology in Vienna, reject the theory. "The constellation stars never change. If that happens, there would be chaos on earth, "he said.

WASP-33b, Hottest Planet's More Heat From Multiple Stars

WASP-33b, Hottest Planet's More Heat From Multiple Stars

Astronomers involved in the project Super Wide Angle Search for Planets (SuperWASP) have discovered the hottest planet called WASP-33b. The temperature of the planet is hotter than the temperature of some stars.

The existence of the planet has been suspected since 2006, but was only confirmed in 2010 yesterday. Known, the planet is classified in this type of gas planets with masses less than 4.5 times the mass of Jupiter.

Based on observations with the William Herschel Telescope, WASP-33b temperatures reaching 3200 degrees Celsius. The temperature was hotter than a red dwarf star with a temperature 700 degrees Celsius and WASP-12b where the temperature in 2300 degrees Celsius.

One cause of the heat of the planet's temperature is the temperature of the parent star is too hot. Astronomers said the temperature of the planet's parent star is 7160 degrees Celsius, higher than the temperature of the sun is only 5600 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, another reason is the proximity distance of WASP-33b orbits the parent star. With a distance of only 7 percent of the distance Mercury-Sun, the planet seemed to be "contaminated" hot parent star.

The study of the planet led by Alexis Smith of the University of Keele in Stafordshire, England. Through this study, the astronomers also know that the planet's revolution time is very short, only 29.5 hours.

Drake Demming of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland who was not involved in the study, said, "WASP-33b could help astronomers examine the hot planetary the characteristic still a mystery."

Lesson to be learned for example the orbit planet close to its star that has a layer of the atmosphere is cooler outside than inside layer. This is surprising because the planet is "heated" from the outside.

Deming said that fact could be related to the presence of carbon-based compounds that change the way the atmosphere respond to radiation. Certain chemical compounds can be formed by ultraviolet light from the star.

"It certainly would be a planet you want to see. This is a very rare opportunity to study the planet orbiting the star is super hot," said Deming in his interview with New Scientist.
