On October 15 1997, at the Black Rock Desert in Nevada, USA, British RAF pilot Andy Green set a new, and still unbeaten, Land Speed Record in Thrust SSC. Here are some of the key facts and figures about the record-breaking car…

763.035 mph – the record-breaking speed averaged over the 2 runs of the measured mile (1227.986 km/h). 4 Gallons Per Second – the approximate volume of fuel burned per second. That's 15.1 litres per second.

110,000 Horsepower – Thrust SSC’s power output, measured in brake horsepower.

5:1 – the power to weight ratio of each of the two Rolls Royce Spey 202 jet engines (weighing 1,856 kg and outputing 20,500 lbf of thrust). 16 seconds – the estimated time to go from 0-600mph (1000kph). And you thought your car was fast.

Around the same time the Vikings and their longboats wreaked havoc in Europe (~950 AD.) opening trade routes as far away as Baghdad and settling Iceland, Greenland and N. America --- their Tongan cousins were the Vikings of the S. Pacific, wreaking havoc wherever their long-distance, triangular sail, double-canoes went -- building a Pacific empire that was nearly the size of the U.S and lasted about as long as the Viking age itself! (~1150 AD.) #nerdalert🤓

🏃‍♂️4 kilometers= about 2.5 miles. 480 kilometers= about 300 miles! The human body is amazing. Those little blood cells must have lots of energy!💪#FunFact #DidYouKnow #NowYouKnow #BloodCells #Anatomy #IncredibleHumans #LenovoApps

CRISPR technology is a simple yet powerful tool for editing genomes. It allows researchers to easily alter DNA sequences and modify gene function.
The genomes of various organisms encode a series of messages and instructions within their DNA sequences. Genome editing involves changing those sequences, thereby changing the messages. This can be done by inserting a cut or break in the DNA and tricking a cell's natural DNA repair mechanisms into introducing the changes one wants. CRISPR-Cas9 provides a means to do so.
The protein Cas9 (or "CRISPR-associated") is an enzyme that acts like a pair of molecular scissors, capable of cutting strands of DNA.
This protein is guided by a piece of RNA called Guide RNA (g-RNA)
Cas9 could be directed to cut any region of DNA. This could be done by simply changing the nucleotide sequence of g-RNA, which binds to a complementary DNA target.
Once the DNA is cut, the cell's natural repair mechanisms kick in and work to introduce mutations or other changes to the genome.
Or scientists can introduce a DNA sequence that a cell can use to repair the DNA
Thus editing the genome as they please

Another job Interview success !! And I'll talk about it here , read the rest hehe 💁

My vacation consists of work, gym & workout at home everyday . "How is that a vacation?" Well workout is my everyday routines as you guys know and work wise , doesn't really bother me since I need the money 💰 for school, I am sure a lot of you understand that. "What job interview are you talking about?" So I am almost done my ECE program woohoo ! and soon will become an official educator 😊 how? A month ago , I was scanning through this job site , I put in "early childhood educator" then suddenly I got a call saying they read my resume and they really like it which I am super happy about and thought why not keep it a secret from my close friends and my family and turn it into a surprise sooner or later . Hey, Christmas and new year is coming 😉 I am so excited because I've been waiting for this day to come. I been volunteering as a TA all my life. I want to become a teacher or work at a daycare setting since I was a little girl that's why I was always in some elementary schools helping other teachers and students . I am very attached to kids I got so many thank you cards from the kids and still have them as memories, I would look at them every time , I would cry because of how adorable they are 🤦‍♀️ silly right?
However finally my dream is about to officially come true after many years of stressed and lost so much hair which got me too emotional because my hair is very important to me that I would never cut it short 😂
In conclusion I want to thank so many of you whoever is reading this, you guys never left my side and love me for who I am today and to those who been there since day 1 👏 Always there to make me laugh and all just to make me happier and ofc my family they never give up on me , cousins and every single one of you 💕😀 #finallygraduatingsoon #gotthejob #trainingbegins #secondjob #whatasurprise #sohappy #havetoshare #nowyouknow #mylifenow #sothankful #mademyday

Karena kebodohan, dalam bentuk apapun, jauh lebih berbahaya dibanding rokok... #nowyouknow
