Dian Fossey
 was an American zoologist who undertook an extensive study of gorillagroups over a period of 18 years. She studied them daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda, initially encouraged to work there by famousanthropologist Louis Leakey. Her 1983 book, Gorillas in the Mist, combines her scientific study of the mountain gorilla at Karisoke Research Centerwith her own personal story. Fossey was murdered in 1985; the case remains open.
Called one of the foremost primatologists in the world while she was alive, Fossey, along with Jane Goodall and Birutė Galdikas, were the so-calledTrimates, a group of three prominent researchers on primates (Fossey on gorillas; Goodall on chimpanzees; and Galdikas on orangutans) sent by Leakey to study great apes in their natural environments.

Apple app stores 16 most expensive apps

Apple app stores 16 most expensive apps

Paid apps may be on the decline, but a small percentage of mobile users are willing to fork out for high quality content, and Apple's app store still contains a selection of offerings for really big spenders.The Apple Store is the largest app store in the world, with more than 900,000 apps in total, consisting of both free and paid apps. Although 90 percent of iOS apps are now free, according to app analytics provider Flurry, some are expensive beyond imagination.

The highest price that any developer can charge for an app on the iOS App Store is $999.99 (£638). When the App Store first opened, a number of novelty apps were launched aimed at people with more money than sense. The most notable example was I Am Rich - an iPhone app that did nothing except proclaim the user's affluence.
These days, however, the $999.99 club is made up primarily of apps with legitimate purposes, and mobile blog Top Apps has put together a list of the the 16 most expensive apps in the App Store.
Only four developers charge the top price of $999.99. One of these isVIP Black, which claims to give owners “VIP treatment - extra-special experiences like complimentary upgrades, surprise gifts, welcome packages, exclusive rates, priority access, and other unique privileges - across iVIP Ltd’s global range of luxury partners and services.”
As if paying nearly $1,000 for the app wasn't enough, VIP Black also requires buyers to prove that their income is above £1 million.
Other members of the top four include BarMax CA, an app to help law students pass the bar exam, and Agro, which is used by farmers to keep track of their crops. Meanwhile, MobiGage NDI is aimed at helping manufacturers put together part orders.
The remaining 12 apps decrease rapidly in cost, (and some would say value), with the last on the list costing just $49.99. The full list is available below.
Warning: some of these applications may be scams.

14 Most Popular Free iPhone Apps Of 2013

14 Most Popular Free iPhone Apps Of 2013

Apple has announced the most popular apps for iPhone and iPad for 2013.
Apple divided the apps by free and paid. Here's a look at the most popular free iPhone apps of the year.

14. Facebook Messenger

Facebook messenger was spun off from the main app. It lets users chat without opening Facebook. You can also send stickers and photos.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

13. Subway Surfers

Subway Surfers lets you navigate the treacherous terrain of various international cities transit systems while collecting keys to earn prizes.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

12. Twitter

On top of its IPO, Twitter has launched a series of updates for the mobile app this year. Twitters app has a deeper search which helps TV fans find shows that are trending or important people nearby. Twitter enhanced its messaging function to compete directly with Facebook. Ultimately, Twitter wanted its app to became an important tool for finding information and chatting with other members of the community.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

11. 4 Pics 1 Word

4 Pics 1 Word is self explanatory. Players need to associate four pictures and type one word. Simplistic games like this typically take off in the App Store. Its a perfect time waster.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

10. Flashlight

Finding the flashlight app in the top 15 free apps was a little surprising. Apples new iOS 7 update for iPhone has a built-in flashlight feature. But that didn stop people from downloading this self-explanatory tool.
Available: iPhone.

9. Despicable Me: Minion Rush

The best part of the "Despicable Me" films are the minions. Audiences love the misadventures of these little troublemakers, so it makes sense why this game has been so popular. The game is simple. Control the Minions and have them race through Grus lab and other levels to get the best score. Plus, devoted fans of the movie won be able to resist dressing up the characters as Santa.
AvailableiPhone and iPad

8. Pandora Radio

When Apple announced iTunes Radio over the summer, critics went to Twitter to mourn the anticipated death of Pandora Radio. It turns out they were mistaken. While the streaming service lost 2 million users in October according to The Daily Beast, its overall subscriber base reached 72.7 million that same month. Pandoras decision to lift a 40 hour listening cap per month for free users could have contributed to this success as well.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

7. Instagram

Instagram just introduced a new direct messaging feature that may have boosted its rankings. However, Instagram Direct has gotten criticism that it basically imitates Snapchat. While the video feature may not have been as popular as they may have hoped, Instagram is still a beloved service. No one is going to be able to resist uploading photos and altering their filters. 
Available: iPhone and iPad.

6. Snapchat

The disappearing photo messaging app gained a slew of new tools this year while users found a number of secret features. Snapchat incorporated "Stories" into the app, which essentially created timelines of collected snaps from a 24 hour period. Secret filters like drawing with a white crayon were found over the summer and added a new level of functionality for a basic service.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

5. Google Maps

Googles acquisition of social mapping app Waze allowed for more traffic alerts to be installed on the travel app. It created a powerful social GPS that made it an essential travel app. Earlier this week, the Google Maps iOS app installed a Google Now like feature providing users with the ability to view flight and hotel reservations straight from the program.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

4. Vine

Twitters video app Vine was one of the big breakout hits of the year. The app lets you share six-second videos that continuously loop.
Available: iPhone.

3. Temple Run 2

Temple Run 2 arrived in the App Store early this year and was downloaded 20 million times within the first four days. The second version of the app added new courses and introduced a female character.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

2. YouTube

Nothing beats Youtube. The app still reigns supreme for watching videos. The iPhone and iPad versions recieved small updates this year including video quality adjustments and accessibility improvements for Wi-Fi connections.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

1. Candy Crush Saga

After launching in November 2012, Candy Crush Saga has been downloaded over 500 million times and played over 150 billion times, according to USA Today. The app has attracted a large following due to its constant updates and continuous powerups added to the in-game store. The developers have filed for an IPO for 2014, which means that the game has a high chance of domination for next year too.
Available: iPhone and iPad.

But still, we all know Platform has unstoppable capabilities and crazy user's so the best app distribution on iTunes store is never going to end.There are many other App's but they cannot be mention all at a single poor blog. but one thing i can assure  you for now is that i'm going to update my list with the apple's popular app launches by the time when they get big popular.
You can leave any queries about any of the regarding topic and i'll try my best to response you with what makes you satisfy.

This Ancient Martial Art Can Fight Disease, Calm The Mind And Slow Aging

This Ancient Martial Art Can Fight Disease, Calm The Mind And Slow Aging  

Americans have no difficulty adopting ancient practices into their health regimens. Take yoga, the ancient mind-body practice and contemporary fitness craze (and $27 billion industry), which continues its prominence in the mainstream -- even after decades of increasing popularity.  Many forms of meditation, likewise, have been touted for stress-relieving, health-promoting benefits by prominent leaders in business, media and the arts. And then there's tai chi.
Like yoga, tai chi is a type of moving meditation -- a gentle exercise that focuses on the breath and prioritizes ease of movement-- that comes with a host of health benefits. And, like yoga, there are distinct styles and lineages of tai chi along with more modern and hybrid incarnations.
Many of the tai chi moves tell stories and involve mimicking animals -- featuring names like "Embrace the tiger and return to mountain" and "White crane spreads its wings" -- all performed with relaxed muscles and ease of movement. Through maintaining focus on the breath and physical movements, the practitioner is thought to be able to help to direct the flow of Qi, or life force, in the body.
The practice originated over 2,000 years ago in China as a martial art called T'ai chi ch'uan. It is said to have been created in the Wu Dong Mountains by a Taoist priest, who observed a white crane preying on a snake and then mimicked its actions. Today, tai chi is known as a low-impact exercise popular with older adults and practiced by over 2 million Americans each year. Harvard University has even devoted a research program to studying the health benefits of the ancient Chinese art.
"In this high-tech world that's all about speed, greed and instant gratification, tai chi is the antidote to bring us back to balanced health," Arthur Rosenfeld, tai chi master and author of Tai Chi: The Perfect Exercisetold Reuters.
Here are five reasons why tai chi could very well be the "new" yoga.
It helps prevent and fight disease.

Studies have found that when used to supplement traditional forms of treatment, tai chi can help maintain bone density, reduce pain among arthritis patients, promote heart health, reduce hypertension, and improve quality of life and reduce stress for breast cancer patients, among other health benefits.Studies have found that when used to supplement traditional forms of treatment, tai chi can help maintain bone density, reduce pain among arthritis patients, promote heart health, reduce hypertension, and improve quality of life and reduce stress for breast cancer patients, among other health benefits.
"A growing body of carefully conducted research is building a compelling case for tai chi as an adjunct to standard medical treatment for the prevention and rehabilitation of many conditions commonly associated with age," Peter M. Wayne, Harvard Medical School professor and director of the Tai Chi and Mind-Body Research Program, told Harvard Health Publications.
It's as beneficial for the mind as it is for the body.

In addition to relieving stress, tai chi is also scientifically proven to help fight depression among the elderly.
In tai chi, the focus of the mind is on the breath and the physical sensations in the body, which can help to still racing thoughts and increase body awareness. These meditative aspects of the practice help to bring the practitioner many of the same cognitive benefits of traditional seated meditation, including an increased sense of awareness, calm and well-being.
Tai chi may also help to boost well-being by improving both the length and quality of practitioner's sleep. A 2008 UCLA study found that practicing tai chi chih, one particular variation of the practice, was effective in improving moderate sleep complaints among older adults. It also reduced drowisness and inability to concentrate during the day.
It can help you age gracefully.

Tai chi can help improve flexibility and promote a health range of motion in older adults, while also building muscle strength. What's more, women at risk for or suffering from osteoporosis should take note that research has found tai chi to be effective in increasing mineral bone density.

Tai chi could also be one of the most effective methods of promoting good balance and preventing falls in older adults, according to WebMD. Research from the National Institute on Aging found that tai chi reduced fear of falls and risk of falling among older adults.
It can teach you how to slow down -- and how to let go.

The term tai chi itself indicates the harmonious union of opposing forces -- and it's all about going with the flow and moving fluidly within your own physical limitations.
In tai chi, "the objective is not to over-exert or strain one's natural state, but to achieve unity with one's essential nature, thereby releasing the body's intrinsic energies," writes Simmone Kuo in Long Life, Good Health Through Tai-Chi Chuan.
It's accessible to almost anyone.

Tai chi isn't just for older folks. Yes, it's low impact, but anyone can enjoy the numerous health benefits of the practice. Even those who are in poor health can begin a tai chi practice and potentially improve their physical condition.

The practice can even be adapted for those in wheelchairs or recovering from surgery,according to Harvard Medical School experts, and it has been shown to improve balance and motor control among individuals with Parkinson's Disease.

Biological Causes Of Stress

          What are the Biological Causes of Stress?

Everyone experiences stress and situations that cause rapid heartbeats and feelings of panic. The causes of stress and reactions to it are natural in all living beings; its evolutionary purpose was to keep their ancestors alive during times of danger. Your nervous system regulates your stress response and your rest response to keep your body balanced. However, many people live with too much stress, which can affect their health.

Stress Triggers

  • Stress can be caused by many things: too much going on at work or school, problems at home or a dramatic change in your life.

    Small doses of stress can be good---stress can provide the motivation to get work done. Regardless of the cause of stress, the body acts the same way through the response of the nervous system.

Biological Causes

  • When your body perceives a threat, its autonomic nervous system responds. The autonomic nervous system is made up of two parts: the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the "fight-or-flight" response, which is the body's stress response. The parasympathetic nervous system, on the other hand, controls the "rest-and-relaxation" response, which returns the body to a resting state after a stress response. When the sympathetic nervous system is activated by a perceived threat, it releases the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol, which are responsible for the physical responses to stress.

Physical Reactions

  • After the sympathetic nervous system responds to the stressor, and adrenaline and cortisol are released, the body physically reacts. Physical reactions to stress include a faster heart rate, tightening of the muscles, a rise in blood pressure, sharper senses and quicker breath. The duration of these physical reactions depends on how long the stress lasts.

Chronic Stress

  • Too much stress can compromise your health. Conditions associated with chronic stress include pain, heart disease, digestive problems, sleep problems, depression, obesity, autoimmune diseases and skin conditions. If chronic stress continues, these health problems can grow increasingly worse.

Warning Signs

  • Your body will give off signs when it experiences too much stress. If you notice changes in your cognitive abilities, emotions, physical well-being and behavior, you may be under too much stress.

Ayurveda VS Homeopathy VS Allopathy

Ayurveda VS Homeopathy VS Allopathy

Now that’s  a  sort of question which have always been in our minds, before staring any treatment for a particular problem or disease, and it’s quite justified also, after all it concerns with our life and the lives of our loved ones … 
Kindly allow me to share a comparative analysis with you ( i had myself experienced all three i.e Homeopathy, Allopathy and Ayurveda in last 4 year's).



 – Derived  from the Greek hómoios- ὅμοιος- “like-” + páthos πάθος “suffering” which means a substance that causes the symptoms of a disease in healthy people will cure that disease in sick people, or in more simple words ” like cures the like “.

 – Derived from a Greek word állos, “other”, “different” + the suffix πάϑος, páthos, “suffering” which means   “other than the disease”.

-  Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term, made up of the words “ayus” and “veda.” “Ayus” means life and “Veda” means knowledge or science. The term “ayurveda” thus means ‘the knowledge of life’ or ‘the science of life’.


1. HOMEOPATHY -  The differences between the way two individuals react to a similar disease are an indication of the unique way in which each of them react. This uniqueness of the symptoms & reactions brings in the difference in the remedy prescribed to each one of them.
2. ALLOPATHY -  The concept of Allopathy is based on that diseases can be treated with the help of drugs.
3. AYURVEDA  -  Ayurveda  insists that the ‘fault’ or dosha, the ’tissue’ or dhatu and the ‘impurity’ or mala should be in harmony with each other, with all the components i.e  ‘Five Great Elements’ (Panchmahabhuta) theory. These five elements are earth (prithvi), water (jal), fire (agni or tej), air (vayu) and ether or space (akash), should be properly balanced.


1. HOMEOPATHY  -  Homeopathy forms a holistic approach to health, it aids the body’s abilities to heal itself by improving the immune system of the body. They have a striking balance of  SCIENTIFIC , NATURAL  and INDIVIDUALISTIC approaches in their treatments and prescribing.
2. ALLOPATHY -  Allopathy is an approach which aims to treat the illness only. Allopathic practitioners are limited by what they can do because they only focus on the symptoms not the causes. It seems as though there is a pill for every ill, and even better, a pill for all their side effects. We have somehow been convinced that when sick, it is due to a lack of medicine or surgery and this is the only way.
3. AYURVEDA -  Ayurveda stresses a balance of three elemental energies or Vāyu / vāta (air & space – “wind”), pitta (fire & water – “bile”) and kapha (water & earth – “phlegm”). According to ayurvedic medical theory, these three substances — doṣas (Devanāgarī: दोष)—are important for health, because when they exist in equal quantities, the body will be healthy, and when they are not in equal amounts, the body will be unhealthy in various ways.


1. HOMEOPATHY High on individuality, Homeopathic medicines are prescribed on the basis of Individualization which tailoring the remedy according to individuals need. It means every individual is different from others in some way; be it his stature, talking, choices, behavior, or his susceptibility to diseases.  Homeopathic medicines are always prescribed for the complete package that is the individual so naturally the medicine will change for different persons.
2. ALLOPATHY  Almost no individualization, if two person are suffering from flu then they have a common medicine for both of them.
3. AYURVEDA – Somewhat individualized, if compared to allopathy but not as highly as that of homeopathy .


Although cost effectiveness is an issue with some of us, but if we want to have a complete, reliable and forever kind of cure, we have to reach out to the best of doctors, who can cure us and on whom we can trust. now, as far as the money matter goes i only have to say that ” health is priceless “ you can blame me for saying this but its all i have observed till now.


1. HOMEOPATHY -  If taken under proper guidance of a homeopathic physician, homeopathic medicines have no side effects, but It’s a well known fact that anything taken in excess is bound to be harmful. So why won’t homeopathic medicines cause harmful effects if you take them in excess due to negligence or thinking them to be placebo.
2. ALLOPATHY – Allopathy has its own chain of side effects( internal or external) connected with every prescribed medicine.
3. AYURVEDA - In ayurveda, there are merely 1-2 side effects, which are of mild nature and easily revokable.
