Scientists have identified a molecule that fruit flies need to sense magnetic fields. It is the first time the specific molecule has been linked conclusively to magnetic sensitivity in any animal, the researchers report in a July 20 online Nature article.

access

A Sense of DirectionScientists think that somewhere in the photoreceptive cells of the fly, perhaps in the eyes, there is a molecule that allows the fly to sense magnetic fields.

 

The molecule, cryptochrome, acts as a light receptor and is sensitive to blue and ultraviolet light.

 

“This is a huge finding. It really says that cryptochrome, which is linked to animals’ circadian clock, is also involved in a living animal’s response to magnetic fields,”.. Click Here to Read On...

  Photo of chakras in the human body

There is certainly a skeptic in all of us, so do stones have healing properties?  Some may say go take your fairy tale mumbo jumbo back to la la land, others may say take a closer look before discrediting the possibilities.
 

The metaphysical specialist argues that living beings have chakras and crystals are used to often awaken our senses. On the flip side of the coin the predominant scientific world says that people make these things up in their heads. I feel obligated to have an open mind in fairness to both sides.
 

Magnets are often one organic material that would arguably be a thing to have healing properties. I am sure if you have gone to your local pharmacy store you have seen those magnetic healing bracelets. They claim to balance your energy and keep your nerves in check. Most people likely walk by and laugh. Next time you see one of these bracelets I would suggest pick one up to see for yourself. Have we become so accustomed to science that most of us forget the world of mystery?
 

Tourmaline is another stone that is said to contain electromagnetic properties. We as humans contain energy and you could say that our energy has some interaction with other natural energies, so do these energies affect our minds or do I dare say soul.

Most likely you have already made your mind up long before reading this. If you are a scientist you will already know the facts and there is no need to look any further. If you are an individual that is a full believer you will say the scientific community is just plain wrong. If you are a wise one you might stand somewhere in the middle.

To mark St Patrick's Day, Faith Central has compiled 10 celebratory tidbits, some myth, some fact, on the Patron Saint of the Irish.

1. The potato crop was traditionally planted in Ireland after March 17

2. Blue not green is the color originally associated with St Patrick. “St Patrick’s Blue” is used on Ireland's Presidential Standard or flag, while the Irish Guards sport a plume of St Patrick’s blue in their bearskins. The emphasis on green is thought to be linked to “wearing the Green”, a symbol from the 18th century on, of sympathy with Irish independence.

3. St Patrick is patron of fishermen....Click Here to Read On

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY -- After twenty years of behind-the-scenes research and development and prototype testing and refinement, Prof. Leslie Szabo is now ready to launch his product for sale commercially.

The patent and patent-pending Energy-by-Motion (EBM) machine he developed runs itself using a principle of magnetic flux, and has enough juice left over to run other things.  A unit capable of putting out 15 megawatts equivalent of power, for example, would produce around 10 megawatts net to the end user.  The unit will run continuously, with no input fuel, until it is turned off.

There are fourteen different output ranges to choose from, the smallest being capable of producing 1.5 megawatts, and the largest producing 225 megawatts.  The output torque can either be used as torque or it can applied to a generator to produce electricity.... Read On .... Click Here

A group of researchers at the Technical University of Denmark’s project laboratory in Risø have discovered a cooling method that uses magnetic materials instead of electricity, reported daily free newspaper Nyhedsavisen.

The invention will allow for refrigerators to replace existing electric refrigerators in homes and businesses with a fully environmentally friendly power source.... Read On ...Click Here

Hallelajh! I've been checking my master card account, looking for the $40.00 refunded.  It finally showed up today.  Thanks again Jay for sticking with and doing what you said you would do.

What's the attraction to those magnetic bracelets?

Q: I cannot believe you would write about magnetic bracelets for arthritis. This is just a bunch of hooey designed to loosen the purse strings of gullible readers.

I am surprised you would give credence to any "study" of this nonsense.

A: We agree that magnet therapy seems far-fetched, but just because we don't understand how something works doesn't mean we should ignore it.

The well-designed study you refer to was published in the British Medical Journal (Dec. 16, 2004). The researchers randomly assigned patients to wear a bracelet containing either a strong magnet, a weak magnet or a nonmagnetic washer.

After three months the patients wearing the strong magnets had measurable relief from hip and knee pain. The investigators concluded that "Pain from osteoarthritis of the hip and knee decreases when wearing magnetic bracelets."

The placebo effect is hard to eliminate in such studies, but these scientists did their best to control for it. Even though they could not explain how magnet therapy works, they summarized: "Whatever the mechanism, the benefit from magnetic bracelets seems clinically useful."
