Horse



Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it.  From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop your car, or are walking by, you will notice something quite amazing....


Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made a good home for him. 


This alone is amazing. If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the field.
Attached to the horse's halter is a small bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow. 
                                        
As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see that the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse, and that the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting that he will not be led astray. 
 
When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, it stops occasionally and looks back,making sure that the blind friend isn't too far behind to hear the bell. Sometimes we are the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell.
Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way.... 

 Good friends are like that... You may not always see them, but you know they are always there.. 

Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours, and remember... 


Live simply,Love generously,
Care deeply,Speak kindly.......

FOR WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT

God Particle

The Higgs boson is frequently referred to as the "God Particle", a name adopted after Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman's book.Higgs boson is a particle believed to bestow mass on all other particles.It is a hypothetical elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics. It is the only Standard Model particle not yet observed. An experimental observation of it would help to explain how otherwise massless elementary particles cause matter to have mass. If it exists, the Higgs boson is an integral and pervasive component of the material world. 


It plays a key role in the standard model of physics (the theory on which physicists base their whole understanding of matter), proving the existence or absence of the Higgs boson could change the entire foundation of physics, indicating the existence of particles and forces not yet imagined and paving the way for an entirely new set of laws.


"The Higgs boson is interesting because it is the only reasonable explanation we have for the origin of mass," says Dave Rainwater, a researcher at FermiLab. "Without the Higgs, all fundamental particles would be massless, and the universe would be very different. The weak nuclear forces wouldn't be weak at all, for instance, so the elemental composition of the cosmos would be radically different, stars would shine differently, and we probably wouldn't exist." 


And the payoff for whoever discovers the Higgs boson? Nothing less than a Nobel Prize. "Its discovery would be one of the crowning achievements of modern science, and validate decades of intense research," says John Conway, a professor at Rutgers

Latest News on Higgs boson/God Particle

Scientists are expected to announce they may have caught their first glimpse of the Higgs boson, a curious subatomic particle long thought to underpin the microscopic workings of nature.
Hundreds of physicists will crowd into a seminar room at Cern, the European particle physics laboratory near Geneva, on Tuesday, to hear the latest in the hunt for the particle, while thousands more are expected to watch online.
The Higgs boson, or so-called God particle, has become the most coveted prize in particle physics since it was postulated in the mid-1960s. Its discovery would rank among the most important scientific advances of the past 100 years and confirm how elementary particles get mass.Read More

Mass hysteria! Science world buzzing over rumours the elusive 'God particle' has finally been found -
The world's largest atom smasher is rumoured to have found the Higgs boson, the subatomic particle otherwise known as the 'God particle'.
The speculation is based on a leaked internal note, said to be from physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17 mile-long particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland.Read More


 

What is an Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to view internal organs and produce images of the human body. The human ear cannot hear the sound waves used in an ultrasound.


Ultrasound technology was originally developed as sonar to track submarines during World War I. It was first used medically in the 1950s and is considered very safe.




Ultrasound examination is also called as sonography. The images produced during an ultrasound examination often provide information that's valuable in diagnosing and treating a variety of diseases and conditions.Despite its valuable uses, ultrasound can't provide images of all areas of the body.

Ultrasound examinations are performed only by trained professionals such as sonographers, radiologists and obstetricians.
