15Mar1905. Unknown patent clerk, who stays with questions much longer, writes papers on nature of light, relativity and E=mc²


"It is not that I'm so smart. But I stay with the questions much longer."

Albert Einstein's Year of Miracles: Light Theory
Over a century ago today, 15 March 1905, Albert Einstein finished a scientific paper that would change the world. His radical insight into the nature of light would help transform Einstein from an unknown patent clerk to the genius at the center of 20th-century physics.

Scientists call 1905 Albert Einstein's annus mirabilis - his year of miracles. Within a few months, Einstein wrote a series of papers that would transform the way we see the universe. They included his theory of special relativity and the famous equation E=mc².

The first paper described his particle theory of light, which became one of the foundations of modern physics. Just as popular legend has it, Einstein really was a patent office clerk when he conceived his radical theories - but he was also a doctoral candidate who spent his free time debating cutting-edge physics with his friends.

Nature's Magic: 14 most effective natural antibiotics

(quote)

top 14 most effective natural antibiotics - provided by nature, which efficiently treat the issue, and does not cause other damage to the body

Apple-Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which effectively fights off viruses, fungi, and bacteria. It destroys germs that attack the throat and absorbs the toxins and germs from the surrounding tissues.

Additionally, it causes acetolysis, which is a condition in which it breaks down toxic residue and prevents further damage.

Garlic

This potent vegetable is an excellent antibiotic but does not destroy healthy bacteria. Apart from it, it has strong antifungal, antiviral, and anti-parasitic properties.

Its regular use, even in small amounts, effectively treat various health issues, including Candida overgrowth, chronic sinus infections, chronic diarrhea, genital herpes, high blood pressure, diabetes, impotence, high cholesterol levels, allergies, toothache, cold, flu, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.

Hence, when it comes to natural remedies, garlic is definitely one of the miracles we prayed for!

Ginger

Ginger has been traditionally used as a powerful remedy for flu and colds, but it has been found that its consumption raises the body temperature and leads to sweating. When we are sweating, our body releases a chemical which destroys microbes.

Onions

Onions have similar properties as garlic, and their consumption soothes pain, boosts the circulation, and reduces inflammation. They have also been found to act as an herbal analgesic, and anti-inflammatory, which provide great relief in the case of a persistent cough, flu, and colds.

Jack on Twitter's independence: "we're not constrained by the particular whims of one platform versus another"

Queen Jack Dorsey Says There's Value in Twitter Remaining Independent
Twitter Inc. Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey said there’s "strength" in the social-media company remaining independent, deflecting renewed speculation that it may again be an acquisition target.

"There’s a lot of strength to our independence because we can work on every device, work through every medium," Dorsey said Tuesday at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference in San Francisco. "We’re not constrained by the particular whims of one platform versus another."

Twitter shares, which rose 8.1 percent at Tuesday’s close in New York, jumped on several trading days last month on takeover speculation. In a January note to investors, BTIG analyst Richard Greenfield predicted that Twitter will be acquired this year, saying it has become too valuable to remain independent. Reports of acquisition talks regarding the microblogging service first emerged in 2016, with potential suitors including Walt Disney Co. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google.

Twitter has made significant improvements since those talks fell apart without a deal. The company’s shares have more than doubled in the past year, driven by stronger financial performance and changes to the app that are bringing users back to the platform more frequently. Earlier this month, San Francisco-based Twitter reported its first revenue growth in four quarters and its first real profit.

Queen bans plastic. Man made pollution and it bites back: seafood eaters ingest 11,000 pieces of microplastic each year

(quote)

Queen Elizabeth II is banning plastic straws and bottles across the royal estates.
The Telegraph reported that the monarch is behind Buckingham Palace's plans to phase out single-use plastics from public cafes, royal residences and staff dining rooms. Royal caterers will instead use china plates and glasses or recyclable paper cups. Takeaway food from the Royal Collection cafes must be made of compostable or biodegradable packaging.

British lawmakers are also urging for more action to fight plastic pollution. A ban on microbeads came into force in Britain last month. In 2015, a 5p (5 British pennies) fee was introduced on plastic carrier bags, which led to 9 billion fewer bags being used. Many businesses in the UK are getting on board with cutting out plastics. Starbucks recently introduced a 5p disposable cup charge in 20 to 25 central London outlets to encourage customers to switch to reusable cups. And Iceland Foods, a major UK supermarket chain specializing in frozen food, announced that it will eliminate plastic packaging from its own brand of products by the end of 2023.

The Queen was reportedly inspired to take action after working with famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough on a conservation documentary about wildlife in the Commonwealth. Attenborough's "Blue Planet II" documentary that aired last year highlighted the devastating effects of plastic on our oceans and marine life.
