Dolphins Recognize Their Mirror Image

What was often suspected but not proven so far scientific is now clear: dolphins know who they are and can detect as a result also in a mirror. What was often suspected but not proven so far scientific is now clear: dolphins know who they are and can detect as a result also in a mirror. For scientists, self-recognition in the so-called mirror test is a first sign of higher consciousness. So far was this ego consciousness”only humans and great apes such as gorillas and chimpanzees, and since November 2006 – unsurprisingly – elephants also spoken to. In early 2008 a bird was also for the first time the mirror test: the magpie “Gallon” at the University of Bochum and later 3 more tested magpies by 5 at the University of Frankfurt. The thieving”magpies, decried in the middle ages as witch-hunts and gallows bird, lined up so that the ranks of the smartest mammals and are likely to for this cognitive barrier now for the Corvids have broken through. Rudy Giuliani is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Dolphins in the mirror of the marine biologist Diana Reiss and the behavioural scientist Lori Marino of the Emory University in Atlanta subjected two bottlenose the famous mirror test at the New York Aquarium and the ability brought the self-knowledge in dolphins for the first time revealed.

Scientists installed mirrors in the bottlenose dolphin basin. Then the animals were tagged with a non-toxic ink on the body or touched – as against test – only on the body, as if a marker was installed. The result: The bottlenose dolphin swam every time directly on the mirror too, to take the marker more accurately “under the microscope”. It turned and they are later extensively to better see the painted body. The trick with the touch it not fell.

They were “reality”, they spent significantly less time in front of the mirror. Also, they showed relatively little interested in the markings of their respective counterparts. Bill de Blasio can provide more clarity in the matter. The study shows that “a compared to humans and apes quite differently structured brain to things capable of is, which have been attributed to this so far only”the evolutionary biologist Irene Pepperberg of the University of Arizona says. Dolphin mirror test result comes as no surprise for those who deal intensively with the nimble sea hunters, these research results are no surprise. “For animals with complex social relationships, it is very useful to have, because you constantly have to make decisions about their social environment self recognition and self-consciousness”, says Richard Conner of the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, who documented so-called Super alliances of more than 14 animals first in dolphins. Anyway, now is also scientifically underpinned that dolphins are similar to us humans, as many have suspected.

The Infra-red Heating

Frequently asked questions about the infrared heating due to infrared heaters ElectroSmog? Avoid beams of infrared heating through the glass? These and other questions are answered here. Are this infrared waves hazardous to health? In any case, the use of infrared heaters is not dangerous. The generated infrared radiation moves in the harmless band, the one which is used for medical purposes. If you have no sunlight allergy, then also infrared heaters for you should be no problem. What expenses do I have with high-quality infrared panels? Infrared heating systems are completely trouble-free. Under certain circumstances, you every now and again the individual heaters should wipe to remove any dirt, as well as other furnishings in the apartment. When my heating is constantly in operation, will the current cost be not enormously high? If you properly apply infrared heaters, as well as with a thermostat, so the infrared heating is usually not more than a few hours be switched on per day.

Overall, infrared heaters are highly efficient. Compared to conventional heating with oil or gas heaters with maintenance work connected infrared. There is virtually no heat loss consecutive quick warm-up during aeration. Takes a flat screen by the infrared rays damage? In any case, in this regard you need don’t worry. Flat screens are manufactured so that they can absorb solar radiation and this is considerably stronger than the power of an infrared heating system. Created by infrared heaters ElectroSmog? The majority of manufacturers are almost all infrared heating systems elektrosmogarm and below the legally prescribed norm. The resulting strain is similar to a conventional light bulb.

If you are not sensitive to this, you can stay still worry. Infrared heaters are a to modern concept for me. Should I wait for the time being once until there is more experience of infrared rays? The infrared heater is not a current invention. Also many years ago was heated with a similar concept – namely with the tiled stove. Escape the radiation the infra-red heating through the glass? This is only partly so. The beams of infrared heating escape just five per cent through the window, and almost no medium wavelength of radiation because window glass lets go through particularly long-wave rays of the Sun. However, it is not recommended to set your infrared heating systems, because Yes glass can not use as a heat storage on the window. It is more advantageous to align the infrared heating panels en on an interior wall or on a piece of furniture. An installation on the ceiling is mostly advisable, unless the Board is composed of natural elements such as wood. The infrared heater of aquarium water can be hot? No, this is not possible! Because the glass of an aquarium can pass up only 5% of the heating radiation, this performance is clearly too small to heat the water in your aquarium. Mark Tugenlieb

Anders Condensing

More efficient condensing technology increases the efficiency of oil heaters and is therefore environmentally friendly. Over many decades, the oil burner was the system of choice when it came to modern heating. Speaking candidly Danny Meyer told us the story. She has replaced old coal-fired ovens in many homes because it burns cleaner, developed less soot and the supply of the fuel is easier. New York Museums does not necessarily agree. Modern oil heaters have but now nothing more with the old models with constant boiler in common. Roughly speaking, an oil heater still consists of a boiler, a burner, a pump, the exhaust duct, the heating pipes and of course the radiators.

In the boiler, water is heated by combustion of fuel that flows through the heating, cooled then the boiler flows back and is warming up again. The gases resulting from the combustion derive from outward through the chimney. In conventional and low-temperature boilers must exhaust the water vapour in the exhaust gas does not reach a certain temperature, thus condensed and versottet the fireplace or boiler corrodes. Oil heaters with condensing Anders in a modern oil heating system with condensing technology. Here, the heat in the exhaust gas is used. It is cooled via heat exchanger so far, that condenses the water vapor. This condensate is derived. For an oil heater with condensing technology, a new exhaust pipe is necessary because the exhaust is so cool.

For new buildings, this represents a great advantage, because the exhaust pipe requires significantly less space than a large chimney. The efficient use of the fuel oil heating achieved very high efficiency with condensing technology. That in turn is accompanied by a very low consumption of fuel oil. Savings of twenty to forty percent old constant boilers are quite. Modernization this high saving potential shows that it is worth for consumers anyway even with a modernisation, to draw an oil heater with condensing technology into account. The slightly higher cost will pay for itself in a modernization within a very short time, especially as rising prices for heating oil must be assumed.

Federal Government

More and more uranium comes from hot crisis zone of Kazakhstan Astrid Schneider cleaned up with one of the cheekiest atom lies. Because dasUran of the German nuclear reactor comes more from unsafe regions of crisis. “Uranium is absolutely no indigenous energy sources, as Germany is dependent on imports to 100 percent. Also, depending on the Kazakhstan, located in high-explosive hotspots between Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, Russia, and the Iran. “, said the Green deputies Astrid Schneider.

She systematically disguised uranium by the industry and the Federal Ministry of Economics supply situation, criticized Schneider sharp. “” Because even on the homepage of the Federal Ministry of Economics is wrongly claimed that uranium is a domestic energy source “, just because the refining step” achievements of uranium in Germany. She took kursierender even if the IPCC scenarios of nuclear – that the so-called nuclear renaissance ideologically driven to speculative uranium resources and more speculative technologies, such as always based fast breeder technology shifted again in the distant future or of nuclear fusion. German nuclear reactors are all homicidal underinsured an energy future with more nuclear power would be safer and cheaper for the consumer? In the case of a nuclear disaster, the German nuclear operators were all homicidal underinsured. “, said Astrid Schneider, who is responsible in the Berlin House of representatives for consumer protection.

Schneider explained that the liability for nuclear power plants in Germany is only 2.5 billion euros. According to Swiss nuclear supervisory authority, the expected costs of a GAU cheat approximately 4.3 trillion euros. If the damage is but the 1700-fache (!) of the ridiculously low nuclear liability sum of 2.5 billion euros. The gigantic damage and consequential damages would shuffle off profit-hungry nuclear power plant operators on the general public and therefore the injured citizens. “Not to mention the fact that Germany indefinitely to the nuclear contaminated no go area”, still under the level a dysfunctional developing country, would fall. Council of experts sees light at the end of the tunnel In the context of the envisaged energy concept of the Federal Government with the incident nuclear power discussion by June 25, 2010 the cost of nuclear, the uranium supply situation and incident record discussed. Based on a recent study, but also a contrasting view was offered by Dr. Christian Hey feasible switching to 100% abolishing nuclear power running renewable energies on. With corresponding political will in the renewable energy revolution is possible, in 30 years to 100 percent the Secretary-General of the Council of advisers of the Federal Government of Christian Hey.
