There are 7 different kinds of twins

There are 7 different kinds of twins Identical, Fraternal, Half-Identical, Mirror Image Twins, Mixed Chromosome Twins, Superfecundation, and Superfetation; not sure what they are?? Well they are different types of twins. Most of us are aware about the first two types of twins that are Identical and Fraternal.  Identical twins have different personalities from each other. In spite of the fact that they come from the same sperm and are developed from the same egg, they have certain differences in their D.N.A. In spite of this they do have unique finger prints and similar brain patterns.

There are 7 different kinds of twins

Mirror Image twins are similar to Identical twins. They appear as if they are the mirror image of each other. The best example for this would be if one of the twins is right handed than the other one will be left handed. It also counts habits and dislikes of the mirror image twins. Fraternal Twins are not like Identical twins they have nothing in common except of the same birthday date excluding some rare cases. Fraternal twins may also have different skin colors and complexion.

Half Identical twins are very rare to born. They inherit same genes from the mother but have different genes from the father. So when you see a Twin looking same like his or her mother but have eating or laughing style like his or her father then be assured that the twins are Half Identical twins.

Twins of any type or genre they have always been a part of cute amusement and surprise when we see them in public. The most surprising type of twins is Superfecundation. The development of the second egg happens after a fertilization of the first one, the span of fertilization in such cases is usually after 12 to 48 hours of the first one.

Superfetation is the similar occurrence of more than 1 stage of development in the same animal, but in humans this tendency is quiet different as women have only one uterus; so the delivery of twins depend on their development. In some of these cases labour pain lasts for hours, while in some cases twins are delivered after few days or week.

When Detroitan’s walks on the streets of their humble city, most of them are unaware that they are walking on the 1500 acres of salt mine.  The mine stretches from Detroit’s metropolitian area all the way to, Melvindale and Allen Park in the South West.  A salt company named the Detroit Salt and manufacturing company shut the mine down in 1983,  As the company incurred loss due to fall in salt prices.

From 1920 to 1950, this salt mine was tourist attraction in the city, thousands of citizens would visit the mine, along with the kids, and most of them on school trips. Even in the busiest time of the mine, packed with many people; mine always appeared to be clean and rodent free.  Surprisingly, the mine was rodent free because rats would have absolutely nothing to eat, besides the left over from the worker’s lunch. Hence nothing lived in the mine, and nor there are any sign of anything living in the past.

Salt city sounds interesting it could be a good sight to watch, nature’s marvelous gift under a motor city, of states.

The Most relaxing tune ever

According to scientists, This is the most relaxing tune ever recorded.

Listening to Music is one of the most loving way of relaxing. It is been observed that at the time of relaxation a soothing slow song is always preferred by people. Keeping this idea in mind, musical band from Manchester, United Kingdom named, Macroni Union has recorded a 8 minutes long music which helps in sleeping and relaxation, major instruments used in this are piano, guitars and electronic sounds of natural escapes. It is also said that it is harmful to listen to this tune while driving as it lowers down mental activity and induces sleep.

Macroni Union closely worked with sound therapists in order to create soothing tune, which slows breathing and brain activity. Harmonies, rhythms and bass lines are arranged in such a way that the tune slows down heart rate, reduce blood pressure, and also lowers the level of stress hormone cortisol.


In order to see the effectiveness of these tunes, scientists played the song to 40 women and then women were connected to sensors. Hence were gives puzzles to solve in a particular time period in order to increase stress level in them. Through sensors their heart rate, blood pressure and breathing were recorded. Before weightless many different songs were played just to observe their heart beats and brain activity. After some time when the experiment was evaluated, it was astonishing to see that these women were drowsy in lab. As this song has a power of reducing 65% of overall anxiety. In fact it pushes it down to 35% which is very less than the usual rates. The study commissioned by Radox Spa and Bubble bath agrees that this song is more relaxing than a massage or a cup of tea.

During the experiment it was also observed that weightless was 11% more soothing and relaxing than any other song. The magic in this song is because of its components which feature ancient Buddhists chants which create a trance like state. Studies also shows that this world’s most relaxing song.

Hence it would not be wrong saying that this song will be used as therapy for people with anxiety, depression or blood pressure issues.

A bolt of lightning once struck a soccer pitch and killed entire team.

Football enthusiasts in the central African country of Congo were throwing allegations of witchcraft at one another after a freak explosion of lightning struck dead a whole squad on the playing ground while their rivals were left unhurt.

The weird rage by the weather conditions to all 11 affiliates of the football squad was accounted in the daily paper L’Avenir in Kinshasa, the center of Congo. A bolt of lightning once struck a soccer pitch and killed entire team.

“Lightning slaughtered at a blow 11 young citizens aged between twenty and thirty-five years in a football game,” the daily reported. It continued to state that 30 other people had obtained burns at the weekend game, hosted in the eastern region of Kasai. “The team members from Basanga [the home squad] oddly emerged out of this tragedy safe and sound.”

The feeling that the black arts may be engaged arose first of all since the opposing group came out unhurt and on the other hand since the score at the moment was a carefully balanced one all.

“The precise temperament of the lightning has split the residents in this area which is recognized for its use of manias in football,” the daily remarked.

A great deal of the detail in relation to the game remains difficult to understand while Congo – formally recognized as Democratic Republic of Congo – stays wounded by civil fighting between the administration of Laurent Kabila and radical forces, supported by bordering Rwanda, to the east of the nation.

Witchcraft is time and again faulted for unpleasant natural phenomena all over central and western Africa. It is fairly frequent for football groups to sign up witchdoctors to put magic charms on their rivals.

In a related occurrence in South Africa, six football players from a home group were wounded after lightning hit the playing ground, even though there were no losses.

Mother’s last skin to skin cuddle saves her 20 oz baby

At times, a premature baby does not need to be connected to 10 different devices to be granted the opportunity to live.

When Carolyn Isbister placed her 20oz infant on her torso for an embrace, she believed it would be the single opportunity to hold her. Doctors had informed the parents that Rachel just had a few minutes to live

since her heart was pounding once each ten seconds and could not breathe. 


Isbister recalls: I did not wish for her to pass on being cold. Therefore, I picked her up out of her coverlet and placed her next to my skin to give her warmth. Her feet were very cold.

It was the single embrace I was going to have; hence, I desired to recall the moment.” After that, something amazing ensued. The heat of her mother’s skin helped Rachael’s heart to beat well, which permitted her to take small gasps of her own. Mother’s last skin to skin cuddle saves her 20 oz baby

It was unbelievable. She produced a small cry. 

The doctors entered and held there was still no expectation – however, I was not releasing her. We had her sanctified by the hospital priest, and hanged around for her to die. However, she still hung on. Then astonishingly, the pink shade started to come back to her cheeks. She factually was changing from gray to pink in front of our eyes, and she started to heat up as well.

The distressing part is that after the infant was born, medical doctors took one glance at her and whispered ‘no’. They did not even attempt to assist her with her inhalation since they alleged it would only delay her dying. Everybody simply quit on her,” her mom recalled.

At 5 weeks, the ventilator was removed from her and she started breastfeeding by herself. At 4 months, Rachel left with her father and mother, weighing 8lbs – as good as any other strong newborn.

There is a Hot Water Beach in New Zealand

On the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand, there is a geothermal attraction called as Hot Water Beach. In between high and low tides, warm water from the underground hot spring which rises up through to the sand. This water is availed to the visitors by scooping a shallow hole in the sand and hence shaping it as a small pool of warm water to relax on. But nature’s this phenomenon is only possible in between the time of low to mid tide that is when the water is available to expose the area of sand containing water underneath.

During holiday seasons hundreds of people with their families and friends visit this beach with a spade and bucket to dig pools which are large enough to relax and lay on. The warmth of water depends on the deepness of the pool. Highest temperature of this water could reach up to 64 degrees. It’s often seen that diggers would also dig a channel to the sea to allow cold water from it to mix in.

With the flow of the high tide, individually created hot pool is washed away, kind of clearing the way for the next batch of visitors. Like every positive has a negative the same way this beach is welcoming and warm till a caution is followed, every visitor has to exercise the same the reason behind this is that the hot springs are very near to the sea even during the low tide, and due to which visitors are prone to be caught under a dangerous rip current and might also have large breaking waves which has already taken a lives of many.

Thus this master piece of nature can be relished and enjoyed by having some precautionary measures to avoid accidents.

A Woman buys two iPhones for $1,300 but gets only apples

An Australian woman bought two iPhones from a Web site but when she received her packages, they contained just one apple each.

A woman in Australia who went onto the classifieds Web site Gumtree, in search of a couple of iPhones. The core of an agreement was reached between the woman and another woman who called her on seeing the ad.  They arranged to meet at a McDonald’s in the Sunnybank suburb of Brisbane.  All went very well. The buyer handed over 1,500 Australian dollars (around US $1,336). In return, she got two shiny new iPhones still in their shiny new boxes.


At least, that’s what she thought.

But when she opened the boxes all that was inside were two apples. One in each box.

Yes, these boxes were all natural logo and no gadget. The seller had been rotten to her pips.

Though some might wonder what special care the seller must have taken to fit two apples precisely into iPhone boxes.
