Answer: In order to keeps the vertical line passing through our centre of gravity always between our feet, which is essential to attain equilibrium or stability. 34. Question: Why does smoke curl up in the air? Answer: Smoke contains hot gases which being lighter in weight, follows a curved path because of the eddy currents that are set up in the air. 35. Question: Why does an electric bulb explode when it is broken? Answer: The bulb encompasses partial vacuum and as it breaks, air rushes in causing a small explosion. 36. Question: Why does a man fall forward when he jumps out of a running train or bus? Answer: He is in motion while in the train or bus. When he jumps out, his feet comes to rest while touching the ground but his upper portion which is still in motion propels him forward.

37. Question: Why does an ordinary glass tumbler crack when very hot tea or milk is poured in it? Answer: When a hot liquid is poured into a tumbler, the inner layer of the tumbler gets heated, it expands before the outer layer and an unequal expansion of both layers causes the tumbler to crack. 38. Question: Why is a compass used as an indicator of direction? Answer: The magnetic needles of a compass under the influence f the earth?s magnetic field lie in a north-south direction. Hence, we can identify direction. 39. Question: Why is water from a hand pump warm in winter and cold in summer? Answer: In winter, the outside temperature is lower than that of water flowing out of the pump, and therefore, the water is warm. Whereas in summer, the outside temperature is higher than the water of the pump, and therefore, it feels cold. 41. Question: Why is a rainbow seen after a shower? Answer: After a shower, the clouds containing water droplets act like a prism through which the white light is dispersed producing a spectrum. 42. Question: Why does a swimming pool appear less deep than is actually is? Answer: The rays of light coming from the bottom of the pool pass from a denser medium (water) to a rarer medium (air) and are refracted (bend away from the normal). When the rays return to the surface, they form an image of the bottom of the pool at a point, which is little above the real position. 43. Question: Why is one?s breath visible in winter but not in summer? Answer: In winter, water vapor contained in the breath condenses into small droplets, which become visible but in summer they are quickly evaporated and not seen. 44. Question: Why doesn?t the electric filament in an electric bulb burn up? Answer: Firstly, because is made of tungsten which has a very high melting point (34100C) whereas the temperature of the filament required to glow is only 2700oC. Secondly, oxygen is absent since the bulb is filled with an inert gas which does not help in burning. 45. Question: Why does blotting paper absorb ink? Answer: Blotting paper has fine pores, which act like capillaries. When a portion of blotting paper is brought in contact with ink, ink enters the pores due to surface tension (capillary action f liquids) and is absorbed. 46. Question: Why does a small iron sink in water but a large ship float? Answer: The weight of water displaced by an iron ball is less than its own weight, whereas water displaced by the immersed portion of a ship is equal to its weight (Archimedes? Principle). 47. Question: Why does ice float on water? Answer: The weight of the ice block is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by the immersed portion of the ice.

48. Question: Why does moisture gather outside a tumbler containing cold water? Answer: The water vapour in the air condenses on cooling and appears as droplets of water. 49. Question: Why does kerosene float on water? Answer: Because the density of kerosene is less than that of water. For the same reason cream rises in milk and floats at the top. 50. Question: Why is the water in an open pond cool even on a hot summer day? Answer: As the water evaporates from the open surface of a pond, heat is taken away in the process, leaving the surface cool.

Answer: In a new quilt the cotton is not compressed and as such it encloses more air which is bad conductor of heat. Therefore, it does not allow heat to pass. 77. Question: Curved rail tracks or curved roads are banked or raised on one side. Why? Answer: Because a fast moving train or vehicle leans inwards while taking turn and the banked or raised track provides required centripetal force to enable it to move round the curve. 78. Question: How do bats fly in dark? Answer: When bats fly they produce ultrasonic sound waves which are reflected back to them from the obstacles in their way and hence they can fly without difficulty. 79. Question: Water pipes often burst at hill stations on cold frosty nights. Why? Answer: The temperature may fall below 00C during cold frosty nights which converts the water inside the pipes into ice, resulting in an increase in volume. This exerts great force on the pipes and as a result, they burst. 80. Question: Why are white clothes more comfortable in summer than dark or black ones? Answer: White clothes are good reflectors and bad absorbers of heat, whereas dark or black clothes are good absorbers of heat. Therefore, white clothes are more comfortable because they do not absorb heat from the sun rays. 81. Question: Why does a rose appear red grass green in daylight? Answer: Rose absorbs all the constituent colors of white light except red which is reflected to us. Similarly, grass absorbs all colors except green which is reflected t us. 82. Question: Why does a ship rise as it enters the sea from a river? Answer: The density of sea water is high due to impurities and salts compared to river water as a result; the upthurst produced by the sea water on the ship is more than that of river water.

83. Question: Why are fuse provided in electric installations? Answer: A safety fuse is made of a wire of metal having a very low melting point. When excess current flows in, the wire gets heated, melts and breaks the circuit. By breaking the circuit it saves electric equipment or installations from damage by excessive flow of current. 84. Question: Why is it easier to lift a heavy object under water than in air? Answer: Because when a body is immersed in water, it experiences an upward thrust (Archimedes? Principle) and loses weight equal to the weight of the water displaced by its immersed potion, and hence, is easier to lift objects. 85. Question: If a highly pumped up bicycle tyre is left in the hot sunlight, it bursts. Why? Answer: The air inside the tube increases in volume when heated up. As sufficient space for the expansion of the air is not available because the tube is already highly pumped, it may result in bursting of the tyre. 86. Question: What will be the color of green in blue light? Answer: Grass will appear dark in color because it absorbs all other colors of the light except its own green color. The blue light falling on grass will be absorbed by it, and hence, it will appear dark in color. 87. Question: Why do two eyes give better vision than one? Answer: Because two eyes do not form exactly similar images and he fusion of these two dissimilar images in the brain gives three dimensions of the stereoscopic vision.

Everyday Science Quiz Questions & Answers


1. Question: A man with a load jumps from a high building. What will be the load experienced by him? Answer: Zero, because while falling, both the man and the load are falling at the same acceleration i.e. acceleration due to gravity. 2. Question: A piece of chalk when immersed in water emits bubbles. Why?

Answer: Chalk consists of pores forming capillaries. When it is immersed in water, the water begins to rise in the capillaries and air present there is expelled in the form of bubbles. 3. Question: Why does a liquid remain hot or cold for a long time inside a thermos flask? Answer: The presence of air, a poor conductor of heat, between the double glass wall of a thermos flask, keeps the liquid hot or cold inside a flask for a long time. 4. Question: Why does a ball bounce upon falling? Answer: When a ball falls, it is temporarily deformed. Because of elasticity, the ball tends to regain its original shape for which it presses the ground and bounces up (Newton's Third Law of Motion). 5 Question: Why is standing in boats or double decker buses not allowed, particularly in the upper deck of buses? Answer: On tilting the centre of gravity of the boat or bus is lowered and it is likely to overturn. 6. Question: Why is it recommended to add salt to water while boiling dal? Answer: By addition of salt, the boiled point of water gets raised which helps in cooking the dal sooner. 7. Question: Why is it the boiling point of sea water more than that of pure water? Answer: Sea water contains salt, and other impurities which cause an elevation in its boiling point. 8. Question: Why is it easier to spray water to which soap is added? Answer: Addition of soap decreases the surface tension of water. The energy for spraying is directly proportional to surface tension. 9. Question: Which is more elastic, rubber or steel? Answer: Steel is more elastic for the same stress produced compared with rubber. 10. Question: Why is the sky blue? Answer: Violet and blue light have short waves which are scattered more than red light waves. While red light goes almost straight through the atmosphere, blue and violet light are scattered by particles in the atmosphere. Thus, we see a blue sky. 11. Question: Why Does ink leak out of partially filled pen when taken to a higher altitude? Answer: As we go up, the pressure and density of air goes on decreasing. A Partially filled pen leaks when taken to a higher altitude because the pressure of air acting on the ink inside the tube of the pen is greater than the pressure of the air outside. 12. Question: On the moon, will the weight of a man be less or more than his weight on the

earth? Answer: The gravity of the moon is one-sixth that of the earth; hence the weight of a person on the surface of the moon will be one-sixth of his actual weight on earth. 13. Question: Why do some liquid burn while others do not? Answer: A liquid burns if its molecules can combine with oxygen in the air with the production of heat. Hence, oil burns but water does not. 14. Question: Why can we see ourselves in a mirror? Answer: We see objects when light rays from them reach our eyes. As mirrors have a shiny surface, the light rays are reflected back to us and enter our eyes. 15. Question: Why does a solid chunk of iron sink in water but float in mercury? Answer: Because the density of iron is more than that of water bus less than that of mercury. 16. Question: Why is cooking quicker in a pressure cooker? Answer: As the pressure inside the cooker increases, the boiling point of water is raised, hence, the cooking process is quicker. 17. Question: When wood burns it crackles. Explain? Answer: Wood contains a complex mixture of gases and tar forming vapors trapped under its surface. These gases and tar vapors escape, making a cracking sound. 18. Question: Why do stars twinkle? Answer: The light from a star reaches us after refraction as it passes through various layers of air. When the light passes through the earth?s atmosphere, it is made to flicker by the hot and cold ripples of air and it appears as if the stars are twinkling. 19. Question: Why is it easier to roll a barrel than to pull it? Answer: Because the rolling force of friction is less than the dynamic force of sliding friction. 20. Question: If a feather, a wooden ball and a steel ball fall simultaneously in a vacuum, which one of these would fall faster? Answer: All will fall at the same speed in vacuum because there will be no air resistance and the earth?s gravity will exert a similar gravitational pull on all. 21. Question: When a man fires a gun, he is pushed back slightly. Why? Answer: As the bullet leaves the nozzle of the gun?s barrel with momentum in a forward direction, as per Newton's Third Law of Motion, the ejection imparts to the gun as equal momentum in a backward direction. 22. Question: Ice wrapped in a blanket or saw dust does not melt quickly. Why?

Answer: Both wood and wool are bad conductors of heat. They do not permit heat rays to reach the ice easily. 23. Question: Why do we perspire on a hot day? Answer: When the body temperature rises, the sweat glands are stimulated to secrete perspiration. It is nature's way to keep the body cool. During the process of evaporation of sweat, body heat is taken away, thus giving a sense of coolness. 24. Question: Why does ice float on water but sink in alcohol? Answer: Because ice is lighter than water it floats on it. However, ice is heavier than alcohol and therefore it sinks in alcohol. 25. Question: Why do we perspire before rains? Answer: Before the rain falls, the atmosphere gets saturated with water vapors; as a result, the process of evaporation of sweat is delayed. 26. Question: How do birds sit safely on electric power lines? Answer: This is possible because a bird only touches one line. If the bird were to touch another line or pole the electricity would travel through the bird, either to the ground or another wire.

25Share 51. Question: Why is it less difficult to cook rice or potatoes at higher altitudes? Answer: Atmospheric pressure at higher altitudes is low and boils water below 1000C. The boiling point of water is directly proportional to the pressure on its surface. 52. Question: Why is it difficult to breathe at higher altitudes? Answer: Because of low air pressure at higher altitudes the quantity of air is less, and so that of oxygen. 53. Question: Why are winter nights and summer nights warmer during cloudy weather than when the sky is clear? Answer: Clouds being bad conductors of heat do not permit radiation of heat from land to escape into the sky. As this heat remains in the atmosphere, the cloudy nights are warmer. 54. Question: Why is a metal tyre heated before it is fixed on wooden wheels? Answer: On heating, the metal tyre expands by which its circumference also increases. This makes fixing the wheel easier and therefore cooling down shrinks it; thus fixing the tyre

tightly. 55. Question: Why is it easier to swim in the sea than in a river? Answer: The density of sea water is higher; hence the up thrust is more than that of river water. 56. Question: Who will possibly learn swimming faster-a fat person or a thin person? Answer: The fat person displaces more water which will help him float much more freely compared to a thin person. 57. Question: Why is a flash of lightening seen before thunder? Answer: Because light travels faster than sound, it reaches the earth before the sound of thunder. 58. Question: Why cannot a petrol fire be extinguished by water? Answer: Water, which is heavier than petrol, slips down permitting the petrol to rise to the surface and continue to burn. Besides, the existing temperature is so high that the water poured on the fire evaporates even before it can extinguish the fire. The latter is true if a small quantity of water is poured. 59. Question: Why does water remain cold in an earthen pot? Answer: There are pores in an earthen pot which allow water to percolate to the outer surface. Here evaporation of water takes place thereby producing a cooling effect. 60. Question: Why do we place a wet cloth on the forehead of a patient suffering from high temperature? Answer: Because of body?s temperature, water evaporating from the wet cloth produces a cooling effect and brings the temperature down. 61. Question: When a needle is placed on a small piece of blotting paper which is place on the surface of clean water, the blotting paper sinks after a few minutes but the needle floats. However, in a soap solution the needle sinks. Why? Answer: The surface tension of clean water being higher than that of a soap solution, it cans support the weight of a needle due to its surface tension. By addition of soap, the surface tension of water reduces, thereby resulting in the sinking of the needle. 62. Question: To prevent multiplication of mosquitoes, it is recommended to sprinkle oil in the ponds with stagnant water. Why? Answer: Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water. The larvae of mosquitoes keep floating on the surface of water due to surface tension. However, when oil is sprinkled, the surface tension is lowered resulting in drowning and death of the larvae. 63. Question: Why does oil rise on a cloth tape of an oil lamp?

Answer: The pores in the cloth tape suck oil due to the capillary action of oil. 64. Question: Why are ventilators in a room always made near the roof? Answer: The hot air being lighter in weight tends to rise above and escape from the ventilators at the top. This allows the cool air to come in the room to take its place. 65. Question: How does ink get filled in a fountain pen? Answer: When the rubber tube of a fountain pen immersed in ink is pressed, the air inside the tube comes out and when the pressure is released the ink rushes in to fill the air space in the tube. 66. Question: Why are air coolers less effective during the rainy season? Answer: During the rainy reason, the atmosphere air is saturated with moisture. Therefore, the process of evaporation of water from the moist pads of the cooler slows down thereby not cooling the air blown out from the cooler. 67. Question: Why does grass gather more dew in nights than metallic objects such as stones? Answer: Grass being a good radiator enables water vapour in the air to condense on it. Moreover, grass gives out water constantly (transpiration) which appears in the form of dew because the air near grass is saturated with water vapour and slows evaporation. Dew is formed on objects which are good radiations and bad conductors. 68. Question: If a lighted paper is introduced in a jar of carbon dioxide, its flame extinguishes. Why? Answer: Because carbon dioxide does not help in burning. For burning, oxygen is required. 69. Question: Why does the mass of an iron increase on rusting? Answer: Because rust is hydrated ferric oxide which adds to the mass of the iron rod. The process of rusting involves addition of hydrogen and oxygen elements to iron. 70. Question: Why does milk curdle? Answer: Lactose (milk sugar) content of milk undergoes fermentation and changes into lactic acid which on reacting with milk protein (casein) form curd. 71. Question: Why does hard water not lather soap profusely? Answer: Hard water contains sulphates and chlorides of magnesium and calcium which forms an insoluble compound with soap. Therefore, soap does not lather with hard water. 72. Question: Why is it dangerous to have charcoal fire burning in a closed room? Answer: When charcoal burns it produces carbon monoxide which is suffocating and can

cause death. 73. Question: Why is it dangerous to sleep under trees at night? Answer: Plants respire at night and give out carbon dioxide which reduces the oxygen content of air required for breathing. 74. Question: Why does ENO's salt effervesce on addition of water? Answer: It contains tartaric acid and sodium bicarbonate. On adding water, carbon dioxide is produced which when released into water causes effervescence. 75. Question: Why does milk turn sour? Answer: The microbes react with milk and grow. They turn lactose into lactic acid which is sour in taste.

IQ Test Answers
The answers to IQ test questions asked above are given below. 1. 10 miles each according to Pythagoras Theorem. 2. Each Cow has 2 eyes and 4 legs and each bird has 2 eyes and 2 legs. Lets call each eye as x and each leg as y. Also each bird is n and each cow is m so: n(2x+2y) + m(2x + 4y) = 172x + 344y 2x (n+m) + 2y(n+2m) = 172x + 344y (n+m) = 86 and (n+2m) = 172 n = 86 - m 86 - m + 2m = 172 or m = 86 This implies n = 0. So, the owner has 0 birds and 86 cows. 3. This is a classic probability puzzle and many puzzles are based on this logic. If the person picks up two socks then there is a possibility of them being different in colour. If he picks up three socks then they are guaranteed red or white. So the minimum number of socks required are three. 4. Let the number be x 105 - x = y x = 105 - y 13x = 105 + y 14 x = 210 x = 15 5. 10 minutes. The total time was one hour and already 50 minutes are over. 6. You can assume that when the fly lands on cyclist 1 they are 50 miles apart. The fly has to travel 50 + x miles at 16 miles/hour. Here x is the additional distance at 10 miles/hour. So the problem is now simplified as

y = 50 + x (distance) (50 + x)/16 = x/10 (time) 500 + 10x = 16x 6x = 500 x = 250/3 = 83.33 y = 133.33 7. Daughter 8. When they meet they are both at the same distance away from London. 9. 10 km. Because the dog's speed is 10 km/h. 10. First, work out how much of the pool gets filled by each tap in one hour. The first tap takes 48 hours to fill the pool, so in one hour it fills 1/48 of the pool. The second tap 1/72. The third tap 1/96. And the fourth tap fills 1/6 of the pool in one hour. We need to add all those fractions together: 1/48 + 1/72 + 1/96 + 1/6 = 61/288 So, in one hour the pool will be 61/288 full and it will be completely full in 288/61 hours = 4 hours 43 minutes and 17 seconds. 11. Tommy was the thief. He was not telling the truth. He stole it. 12. If the guy was from the west, he should answer the truth: I am from the west. If the guy was from the east, he also should tell a lie: I am from the west. The answer will always be: 'I am from the west'. So we know the tour guide was telling the truth. 13. If the horse is brown. then every one is right. This is not the answer. If the horse is black, then every one is wrong. This is not the answer either. Therefore, the horse is gray. To verify the answer, Allan was right, Brian was right, but Charlie was wrong. 14. Since there is no conflict between what they said, it meant that either they both told a lie or both told the truth. In this case they both told a lie. The answer is the brother is older. 15. The number will be 41312432 or 23421314. Of course these 2 numbers are actually the same, just reverse the direction from one to become another one. The way to solve this is, first all, put down two 4s and reserve 4 spaces between these two 4s. Then you determonw the positions for two 3s. Since you can not put both 3s between 4s, one 3 must be outside of two 4s. After that you just need to try a few cases to find out he answer. 16. (a) 8 Minutes because each monkey takes 8 minutes to eat a banana. (b) 8 Monkeys are required to eat 48 bananas in 48 minutes. Each money will eat 6 bananas.

17. There were 8 friends in the group. Each friend was to share Rs 300 to cover the cost of 2400.

Answers to Aptitude Questions


1. Consider the trade-story as if it describes two separate trades, where: In the first trade, the man buys something for $60 and sells it again for $70, so he makes a profit of $10. In the second trade, the man buys something for $80 and sells it again for $90, so he makes again a profit of $10. Conclusion: The man makes an overall profit of $10 + $10 = $20. You can also look at the problem as follows: The total expenses are $60 + $80 = $140 and the total earnings are $70 + $90 = $160. The overall profit is therefore $160 - $140 = $20. 2. 100 Km/hr because that is the top speed of the bus. 3. The man had to reply the number of characters in the word the Doorman was asking. He should have replied "Three" instead of "Five". 4. There are 5 women, 1 man and 14 children. 5. Here are the answers. 1. 2. 3. Cubes that have at least two sides painted in different colours are 24 + 8 = 32. Cubes that have only one side painted are 24. Cubes that have no side painted = 8.

4.

Cubes that have exactly one side not painted = 0.

6. There are actually 204 squares on a chessboard. Surprised! Here is the explanation. There are 64 (1x1) squares. There are 49 (2x2) squares. There are 36 (3x3) squares. There are 25 (4x4) squares. There are 16 (5x5) squares. There are 9 (6x6) squares. Then there are 4 (7x7) squares and 1 big 8x8 square. So, there are a total of 204 squares on a normal chessboard. 7. One Apple 8. Man 1 will shout first. If Man 1 will not shout then Man 2 surely shouts. Reason: Man 1 can see the other two criminals? hats. If the hats are same color then he told his hat is opposite color of remaining two hats. So he shouts first. If Man 1 does not shout, it means that the hats of Man 2 and Man 3 are of different color. So Man 2 sees the color of Man 3 hat and he tells that the color of his hat is opposite to the color of Man 3 Hat. 9. With two people, there is one handshake. With three people, there are three handshakes. With four people, there are six handshakes. In general, with n+1 people, the number of handshakes is the sum of the first n consecutive numbers: 1+2+3+...+n. Since this sum is n(n+1)/2, we need to solve the equation n(n+1)/2 = 66. This is the quadratic equation n2+n-132 = 0. Solving for n, we obtain 11 as the answer and deduce that there were 12 people at the party. 10. Fill the 3-litre bottle and pour it into the empty 5-litre bottle. Fill the 3-litre bottle again, and pour enough to fill 5-litre bottle. This leaves exactly 1 litre in the 3-litre bottle. Empty the 5-litre bottle; pour the remaining 1 litre from the 3-litre bottle into the 5-litre bottle. Fill the 3-litre bottle and pour it into the 5-litre bottle. The 5-litre bottle now has exactly 4 litres. 11. 7 + 2 + 5 = 143542. Explanation: a + b + c leads to a 6-digit number.

The first and second digits are the product of a and b. The third and fourth digits are the product of a and c. The fifth and sixth digits are b*(a+c) with the digits of the solution reversed.

12. 4 Years. Explanation: Let the ages of children be x, (x + 3), (x + 6), (x + 9) and (x + 12) years. Then, x + (x + 3) + (x + 6) + (x + 9) + (x + 12) = 50 i.e. 5x = 20 and x = 4. So, the age of the youngest child (x) is 4 years. 13. The difference between the two digits of that number is 4. Explanation: Let the ten's digit be x and unit's digit be y. Then, (10x+y)-(10y+x) = 36 i.e. 9(x-y) = 36 and that results to x-y = 4.

14. The trees must be planted on the edges of a five pointed star as shown in the figure below.

15. To find the correct switch (1, 2 or 3), turn switch 1 to ON and leave it like that for a few minutes. After that you turn switch 1 back to OFF, and turn switch 2 to ON. Now enter the room. If the light bulb is lit, then you know that switch 2 is connected to it. If the bulb is not lit, then it has to be switch 1 or 3. Now touching the light bulb will give you the answer. If the bulb is still hot, then switch 1 is connected to the bulb; if the bulb is cold, then it has to be switch 3. 16. 19 days. Since the water-lily doubles its size every day and the complete pool is covered after 20 days, half of the pool will be covered one day before that, so 19 days. 17. 16 days. Since the snail moves up 1 meter a day so it will reach 15 meters in 15 days. next day it will again climb 5 meters upward and reaches the top.

For the spellings of verbs, Generally the rule is that if there is a verb form with -ed, American English will use it, and if there is a form with -t, British English uses it. However, these forms do not exist for every verb and there is variation. For example, both American and British English would use the word 'worked' for the past form of 'to work'. So what does tall his mean for learners of English? In the beginning, unfortunately, it means a lot of memorization (or memorisation) and of course, a few mistakes. For spoken English, the differences are barely audible, so forge ahead and don't be too concerned with whether a word is spelled 'dreamed' or 'dreamt'. With written English, however, if you are unsure about the spelling, better to ask your teacher or look the word up in the dictionary and see what the experts say.

Heart Attacks and Drinking Warm Water


868Share This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about heart attacks. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot green tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and may lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

Heart Attack Symptoms


You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive. A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this & Send the link to a friend. It could save a life. So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about. Some people say that it is just an old myth to drink warm water to prevent heart attacks and I'd also like to point out that snopes.com declares this information as an urban myth and many other people agree that cold water is not related to cancer or heart attacks in any way. So, I have no idea if this is true and there is no research to support this theory however I still

wanted to share this information about "heart attacks and drinking warm water" with all of you because its always better to be safe than to be sorry. Related Articles

Heart Attack Information


A heart attack occurs when the blood flow to a part of the heart is suddenly and permanently cut off, causing permanent damage to the heart muscle. Chest pain is typically severe and does not go away with rest or medicine that is effective with angina. Symptoms may indicate your heart is in danger many months or years before a heart attack occurs. Persistent symptoms, such as shortness of breath, nausea, great fatigue, angina/chest pain, fainting spells and gas-like discomfort, are red flags.

1 in 3 adults, both men and women, has some form of cardiovascular disease. In 90% of adult victims of sudden cardiac death, two or more major coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked. Brain death and permanent death start to occur in just 4-6 minutes after someone experiences cardiac arrest. It is in the early or initial stage that the heart disease is almost certainly treatable. The heart and brain muscles are the ones which cannot be revived once dead. For a large number of patients, the first and only symptom of heart disease is a fatal heart attack. Thus diagnosis becomes extremely important for everyone and that too pre-emptive and non-invasive.

Note: Please do not post comments asking for the scientific research behind this information. I've clearly stated in the paragraph above that this is no scientific research found about drinking warm water to prevent heart attacks and it may be an urban myth. As I mentioned above I am not sure of the origin of the information but it does illicit some questions and cause for further research. Please do your research and draw your own conclusions. By the way, I have also learned from various sources that it may be best not to drink any fluid (water or otherwise) during or directly after a meal as it dilutes naturally occurring digestive enzymes.

Accessibility can be thought of as "providing access regardless of the situation or circumstances." In the context of the World Wide Web, accessibility is a measure of how easy it is to access, read, and understand the content of a Website. Attachment Normally a file that is attached to an e-mail. Some attachments are executable programs that can harm your computer by infecting it with a virus or worm. If you are not sure what the attachment is, it is safer to not open it.

Benchmarking The practice of comparing the performance of your organisation, department or function against the performance of 'the best' - whether they be other organisations, industry standards or internal departments. The aim is to look at how well you are doing compared to others in the same field or industry, and to learn from their best practices as a basis for improving your own. Best Practice A process or methodology that has been proven to work well and produce good results, and is therefore recommended as a model. Some people prefer to use the term 'good practice' as in reality it is debateable whether there is a single 'best' approach. Breadcrumb A breadcrumb is a navigation trail that leads from the user?s current location in your web site, back to the home page. This is useful for larger web sites that have deeply nested pages or sections in their site. Example: Home > All Categories > Pre Sales Questions Browser Software that translates digital information into pictures and text so that you can view them on your computer. Some commonly used browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla FireFox, Opera and Netscape. Capacity Building A term sometimes used in knowledge management to describe the process of enhancing an organisation's ability to implement knowledge management principles and practices. CAPTCHA A CAPTCHA (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart", trademarked by Carnegie Mellon University) is a type of challenge-response test

used in computing to determine whether or not the user is human. The term was coined in 2000 by Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, Nicholas J. Hopper of Carnegie Mellon University, and John Langford of IBM.

The market for content management systems remains fragmented, with many open source and proprietary solutions available. Codification The process of getting people's knowledge into a form by which it can be communicated independently of those people. The most common method is writing things down and putting them into documents and databases. Other methods include pictures, and sound and video recordings. Contact Center A contact center (also referred to as a customer interaction center or e-contact center) is a central point in an enterprise from which all customer contacts are managed. A contact center would typically be provided with special software that would allow contact information to be routed to appropriate people, contacts to be tracked, and data to be gathered.

Data A set of facts, concepts or statistics that can be analysed to produce information. DNS - Domain Name System The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet. Every computer on the Internet has a unique address - just like a telephone number - which is a rather complicated

string of numbers. It is called its "IP address" (IP stands for "Internet Protocol"). IP Addresses are hard to remember. The DNS makes using the Internet easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the "domain name") to be used instead of the arcane IP address. So instead of typing an IP address, you can type the website URL. It is a "mnemonic" device that makes addresses easier to remember. Document A record of an event or knowledge, taken so that the information will not be lost. Documents are usually written, but they can also be made up of images or sound. Documents can also be put into electronic or digital form and stored in a computer. Dynamic Content A page that is generated just as the user views it. The content delivered to the user is often updated on-the-spot out of a database or based upon the users browser. It used to be easy to spot one of these pages, but with most systems now allowing dynamic content from any page at any time, you just never know. Search engines no longer penalize for dynamic content as long as the URL does not include submitted data (a ? question mark in the url). E-Business The use of electronic information systems (especially internet technologies) in business processes. E-Learning The use of electronic information systems (especially internet technologies) to deliver learning and training. Expert System An expert system is a computer program that simulates the judgement and behavior of a human or an organization that has expert knowledge and experience in a particular field.

Sophisticated expert systems can be enhanced with additions to the knowledge base or to the set of rules. Explicit Knowledge Knowledge that can be easily expressed in words or numbers, and can be shared through discussion or by writing it down and putting it into documents, manuals or databases. Examples might include a telephone directory, an instruction manual, or a report of research findings. Firewall Software that protects an organisation's computer systems from problems such as viruses that can be carried by internet technologies or hackers seeking to gain unauthorised access. Flash Software from Macromedia (Now Adobe) that is popular for animations used on websites. It requires the Flash plug-in which most modern browsers include.

Help Desk In a business enterprise, a help desk is a place that a user of information technology can call to get help with a problem. In many companies, a help desk is simply one person with a phone number and a more or less organized idea of how to handle the problems that come in. In larger companies, a help desk may consist of a group of experts using software to help track the status of problems and other special software to help analyze problems. Some common names for a help desk include: Computer Support Center, IT Response Center, Customer Support Center, IT Solutions Center, Resource Center, Information Center, and Technical Support Center.

Knowledge Assets (or: Intellectual Assets) Those parts of an organisation's intangible assets that relate specifically to knowledge, such as know-how, best practices, intellectual property and the like. Knowledge assets are often divided into human (people, teams, networks and communities), structural (the codified knowledge that can be found in processes and procedures) and technological (the technologies that support knowledge sharing such as databases and intranets). By understanding the knowledge assets an organisation possesses, the organisation can improve its ability to use them to best effect and also to spot any gaps that may exist. Knowledge Base A knowledge base is defined as a Searchable Database with Answers to the Questions. An integral component of knowledge management systems, a knowledge base is used to optimize information collection, organization, and retrieval for an organization, or for the general public. Read More Knowledge Broker A person who facilitates the creation, sharing and use of knowledge in an organisation. Many organisations have created knowledge broker roles such as 'Knowledge Co-ordinator'. The term knowledge broker is also sometimes used to describe companies or individuals that operate commercially as knowledge traders or provide knowledge-related services. Knowledge Centre A place where knowledge is gathered and stored and can be accessed and used by other people. It may be a physical place like a library, a 'virtual' place like an interactive website or an online discussion board, or a place where people gather such as a caf? or an informal meeting room or discussion area created to encourage knowledge sharing. Knowledge Management Knowledge management is the name of a concept in which an enterprise consciously and comprehensively gathers, organizes, shares, and analyzes its knowledge in terms of resources, documents, and people skills.

LAMP LAMP is an open source Web development platform based on Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, a programming language for which Perl or Python is sometimes substituted. The term was coined in Europe, where these programs are commonly used together and have become something of a standard development environment. The name derives from the first letters of each of the programs. Each program is an open source standard in its own right: Linux is the operating system; Apache is the most commonly-used Web server; MySQL is a relational database management system (RDBMS) with add-on tools for Web-based administration; and PHP is a popular objectoriented scripting language that encompasses the best features of many other programming languages to make it efficient for Web development. Developers that use these tools with a version of a Windows operating system instead of Linux are said to be using WAMP. Link Popularity The number of links (inbound) from other sites to your site. Some search engines take this into account when ranking a page. Not all inbound links are weighed the same. Links from "link farms" may not count for anything. Sites with irrelevant content may also be less valuable. MySQL The MySQL? database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its consistent fast performance, high reliability and ease of use. It's used in more than 8 million installations ranging from large corporations to specialized embedded applications on every continent in the world. Not only is MySQL the world's most popular open source database, it's also become the database of choice for a new generation of applications built on the LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP / Perl / Python.) MySQL runs on more than 20 platforms including Linux, Windows, OS/X, HP-UX, AIX, Netware, giving you the kind of flexibility that puts you in control.

Whether you're new to database technology or an experienced developer or DBA, MySQL offers a comprehensive range of certified software, support, training and consulting to make you successful.
