Most of you think yourselves to be quite safe and clean after washing your hands with a good anti-septic soap or hand sanitizer, but the truth is that this germ exposure is not confined to toilet use only. Sanitizing or making something free of germs is not just washing hands with a sanitizer and cleaning sinks and floors with disinfectants. The faucets you turn, the light switches you flick, the door handles, the TV remotes and above all your cell phones are all fully loaded with terrifying germ colonies, if you are not in a habit to occasionally clean and disinfect them. So can you be safe and germ-free, if you have not even thought of sanitizing this stuff ever?
According to a report from Huffington Post:

Our mobile phones can carry 500 times more bacteria than a toilet seat and 18 times more than a public toilet handle. Plus, 1 in 6 phones have traces of E. Coli bacteria from fecal matter.

These above lines are surely enough to make someone gag; so wicked but so true.
It is well-known that bacteria love to grow at warm places. Heat generated by mobile phones as well as that transferred by your hands while you are using these smart-phones, is sufficient to provide this ideal warm environment for bacteria to grow. Germs that reside on phones are not only transferred from your skin and mouth but also from all the surfaces that your phone touches, including germs of other people who get the chance to use your phone. Keeping this in mind, it’s really frightening when you consider that how many times in a day these bacteria and viruses hang only a few millimeters away from your face.

Not all the germs cause disease and most of them are benign. What you have to worry about are the germs of other people which somehow get to lurk in your mobile phone. In many researches colonies of staphylococci, streptococci and other bacteria have been found on phone screens of many people. A case of MRSA or methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (flesh-eating bug) infection has also been reported in which the person contracted this infection from a phone.

In a study that was carried out in 2009 involving 200 hospital staff members, culturing was done for micro-organisms on their phones. The study revealed that 94.5% of phones were contaminated with some kind of bacteria, many of which were resistant to multiple antibiotics. By also testing participant’s hands, it was found that many of these bacteria were transferred from their hands and vice versa.
How to sanitize your cell phone?
In order to minimize the spread of bacteria and susceptibility to get infected, in addition to washing your hands and personal sanitization, you should also disinfect following few things occasionally (although the list is very long) which are more prone to be resided by germs:

* Disinfecting cell phones
* Credit/debit cards
* Tooth brush holders
* Rug bottoms
* Light switches
* Salt and pepper shakers
* Replacing kitchen sponges frequently

Disinfection can be achieved by the use of anti-septic wipes for cleaning these things or simply by swabbing them with alcohol or spirit occasionally. With these few steps and protective measures, you will surely banish all the germs on cell phones and safe-guard yourself in a real sense.

So the choice is yours, a clean cell phone or a toilet seat!

Extremely rare Golden Tiger!!

A golden tiger, golden tabby tiger or strawberry tiger is one with an extremely rare color variation caused by a recessive gene that is currently only found in captive tigers. Like the white tiger, it is a color form and not a separate species. In the case of the golden tiger, this is the wide band gene; while the white tiger is due to the color inhibitor (chinchilla) gene. There are currently believed to be fewer than 12 of these rare tigers in the world,[citation needed] but many more carriers of the gene.

Interesting Facts About the Sun

Think you know everything there is to know about the Sun? Think again. Here are 10 facts about the Sun, collected in no particular order. Some you might already know, and others will be totally new to you.

1. The Sun is the Solar System:
We live on the planet, so we think it’s an equal member of the Solar System. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. The reality is that the mass of the Sun accounts for 99.8% of the mass of the Solar System. And most of that final 0.2% comes from Jupiter. So the mass of the Earth is a fraction of a fraction of the mass of the Solar System. Really, we barely exist.

2. And the Sun is mostly hydrogen and helium:
If you could take apart the Sun and pile up its different elements, you’d find that 74% of its mass comes from hydrogen. with 24% helium. The remaining 2% is includes trace amounts of iron, nickel, oxygen, and all the other elements we have in the Solar System. In other words, the Solar System is mostly made of hydrogen.

3. The Sun is pretty bright:
We know of some amazingly large and bright stars, like Eta Carina and Betelgeuse. But they’re incredibly far away. Our own Sun is a relatively bright star. If you could take the 50 closest stars within 17 light-years of the Earth, the Sun would be the 4th brightest star in absolute terms. Not bad at all.

4. The Sun is huge, but tiny:
With a diameter of 109 times the size the Earth, the Sun makes a really big sphere. You could fit 1.3 million Earths inside the Sun. Or you could flatten out 11,990 Earths to cover the surface of the Sun. That’s big, but there are some much bigger stars out there. For example, the biggest star that we know of would almost reach Saturn if it were placed inside the Solar System.

5. The Sun is middle aged:
Astronomers think that the Sun (and the planets) formed from the solar nebula about 4.59 billion years ago. The Sun is in the main sequence stage right now, slowly using up its hydrogen fuel. But at some point, in about 5 billion years from now, the Sun will enter the red giant phase, where it swells up to consume the inner planets – including Earth (probably). It will slough off its outer layers, and then shrink back down to a relatively tiny white dwarf.

6. The Sun has layers:
The Sun looks like a burning ball of fire, but it actually has an internal structure. The visible surface we can see is called the photosphere, and heats up to a temperature of about 6,000 degrees Kelvin. Beneath that is the convective zone, where heat moves slowly from the inner Sun to the surface, and cooled material falls back down in columns. This region starts at 70% of the radius of the Sun. Beneath the convection zone is the radiative zone. In this zone, heat can only travel through radiation. The core of the Sun extends from the center of the Sun to a distance of 0.2 solar radii. This is where temperatures reach 13.6 million degrees Kelvin, and molecules of hydrogen are fused into helium.

7. The Sun is heating up, and will kill all life on Earth:
It feels like the Sun has been around forever, unchanging, but that’s not true. The Sun is actually slowly heating up. It’s becoming 10% more luminous every billion years. In fact, within just a billion years, the heat from the Sun will be so intense that liquid water won’t exist on the surface of the Earth. Life on Earth as we know it will be gone forever. Bacteria might still live on underground, but the surface of the planet will be scorched and uninhabited. It’ll take another 7 billion years for the Sun to reach its red giant phase before it actually expands to the point that it engulfs the Earth and destroys the entire planet.

8. Different parts of the Sun rotate at different speeds:
Unlike the planets, the Sun is great big sphere of hydrogen gas. Because of this, different parts of the Sun rotate at different speeds. You can see how fast the surface is rotating by tracking the movement of sunspots across the surface. Regions at the equator take 25 days to complete one rotation, while features at the poles can take 36 days. And the inside of the Sun seems to take about 27 days.

9. The outer atmosphere is hotter than the surface:
The surface of the Sun reaches temperatures of 6,000 Kelvin. But this is actually much less than the Sun’s atmosphere. Above the surface of the Sun is a region of the atmosphere called the chromosphere, where temperatures can reach 100,000 K. But that’s nothing. There’s an even more distant region called the corona, which extends to a volume even larger than the Sun itself. Temperatures in the corona can reach 1 million K.

10. There are spacecraft observing the Sun right now:
The most famous spacecraft sent to observe the Sun is the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, built by NASA and ESA, and launched in December, 1995. SOHO has been continuously observing the Sun since then, and sent back countless images. A more recent mission is NASA’s STEREO spacecraft. This was actually two spacecraft, launched in October 2006. These twin spacecraft were designed to watch the same activity on the Sun from two different vantage points, to give a 3-D perspective of the Sun’s activity, and allow astronomers to better predict space weather.

There are a lot of facet and this some fact among these.
