Hunched Backs, Thick Skulls and Small Brains May Be the Future Look of Humanity

You may think that tech companies care more about profits than about the health of their customers or the people who live near their products or factories – and in most cases you’d probably be right. A telecommunications provider in Los Angeles seems to be trying to do the right thing with its new study that predicts what humans will look like in in the near future if we continue down the current handheld communications path. Are you ready for hunched backs, thick skulls, double eyelids and smaller brains (that one sounds like a given)?

“Spending hours looking down at your phone strains your neck and throws your spine off balance. Consequently, the muscles in your neck have to expend extra effort to support your head. Sitting in front of the computer at the office for hours on end also means that your torso is pulled out in front of your hips rather than being stacked straight and aligned.”

TollFreeForwarding.com is the LA telecommunications company which recently commissioned Maple Holistics, a provider of holistic health and beauty products, to develop a 3D model based on what kinds of strains modern technology usage is placing on our bodies today and how we’ll look if that doesn’t change. A recent Australian study showed that teens are developing external occipital protuberances or bony spikes on their necks due to excessive cell phone usage. So, it should come as no surprise that Mindy, the name Maple Holistics gave to its 3D user-of-the-future has major changes to her back and neck which eventually will lead to an arched or humped back and neck. (Photos of Mindy can be seen here.) Who knew that Quasimodo was ahead of his time?

“The way we hold our phones can cause strain in certain points of contact – causing “text claw,” which is known as cubital tunnel syndrome.”

Dr. Nikola Djordjevic from Med Alert Help explains in the study that future humans will develop clawed hands and pain in their elbows, shoulders and arms when they’re not in the 90-degree bend for cell phone usage. Again, not much of a surprise. It’s the changes above the neck that will make Mindy far different that today’s humans.

“In 2011, the World Health Organization classified smartphone radiation as “possibly carcinogenic to humans”, with a number of long-term studies seeking to establish the full impact. After a 2018 study suggested smartphone radiation may affect memory performance, questions were raised over its impact on other cognitive areas too.”

Based on that, Mindy developed a thick skull to protect her brain from radiation. However, it’s not thick enough to protect her from the most serious evolutionary development – because that has nothing to do with radiation. Mindy has a smaller brain and a smaller body in general because that technology in her hand has removed the need for the rest of her to develop and improve.

Needless to say, this Mindy would have problems getting a date on today’s Tinder … and that’s before the final evolutionary change predicted by the model because of too many years of staring at screens both big and small – double eyelids.

“Humans may develop a larger inner eyelid to prevent exposure to excessive light, or the lens of the eye may be evolutionary developed such that it blocks incoming blue light but not other high wavelength lights like green, yellow or red.”

Ahhhhh! The progression to Reptilian is compete!

Clawed hands? Check. Smaller brain? Check. Hunched back? Check. Two eyelids? Check. Protuberances? Check.

Is a hunchbacked, bent-elbowed, thick-skull, small-brained, reptilian eyelidded future human inevitable? Probably not. We’ve already tested ways to move away from cell phones to hands-free communications and internet usage (remember Google Glass?) and need for cell phones, tablets and notebooks will most likely dissipate, if not disappear completely into the next generation of technology. However, the psychological changes are longer-lasting (tech dependency, less human interaction, lack of sleep) and need to be studied further.

It looks like Mindy will spend a lot of time hunched up on her small-brained psychiatrist’s couch.

Video shows mysterious lights in sky over Tucson, Arizona

12 News

You may have heard of the Phoenix Lights, mysterious lights in the sky that sparked speculation and even documentaries over the years. Now, Tucson may have had its own version of the phenomenon.

A video posted to Twitter and viewed more than 13,000 times shows mysterious lights in the night sky in an area just south of the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

The video, taken shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, shows a string of reddish lights in the sky move slightly before blinking out. Below, three evenly spaced lights shine in a horizontal line. Isaiah Alvarez, who shot the video, said these lights became very bright and left.

Alvarez said he often sees strange things in the sky in that area; this was just the first time he was able to catch it on video.

A spokesperson for Davis-Monthan Air Force Base said they are not aware of anything that would cause the strange lights.

Unidentified, check. So we may have ourselves a UFO here. The question is: Are these lights truly out of this world?

Take a look at the video for yourself and see what explanations you can come up with.

Impossible Foods Is Trying to Make Fake Fish Now

Fishy Smell

Impossible Foods, the meatless meat company behind the plant-based Impossible Burger you’ve probably seen at trendy gastropubs, is moving into the fake fish market.

The company is reworking its recipe for plant-based beef to recreate a fishy flavor and texture, according to The New York Times. The move makes Impossible Foods the latest to enter the race to develop convincing and tasty artificial fish, either through concoctions of plant proteins or lab-grown cells.

Dirty Water

Replacing fish with fake meat could benefit the environment, as fisheries pollute and deplete wild populations of some species, per the NYT. But that may not drive customers to buy filets from Impossible Foods or any of the other companies working on fake fish — much of the boon for the fake beef market came from people who were worried about the health impacts of eating too much red meat.

“A lot of people will simply say if you eat meat, you’re increasing your risk of cancer,” Tom Rees, a food industry expert at the market research firm Euromonitor International, told the NYT. “There isn’t an equivalent of that for fish.”

NASA records a strange formation of clouds on Mars

According to a new study conducted by a team at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder), the formation of clouds in the thin atmosphere of Mars are caused by meteors.

formation of clouds

The “meteor smoke,” which is the icy dust that remains when a meteorite burns in the atmosphere of Mars, is what partially creates the cirrus-like clouds that are placed about 18 miles above the surface of the planet.

Since the clouds here on Earth are made up of particles, like dust grains or sea salt, which are transported into the air by the wind and then the water molecules condense around them, which causes the clouds to form and grow up.

Mars, on the other hand, barely has floating particles, since the atmosphere is very thin. But when small meteors enter the atmosphere of Mars, they often burn, creating fine dust or “meteorite smoke,” which are the necessary particles for clouds to develop.

The Earth has noctilucent clouds that are created from the dust of meteors and are seen at an altitude of about 50 miles in the atmosphere. After the sun sets on the Earth, the clouds still reflect sunlight, so they can be seen shining bright blue.

While meteor dust helps create Martian clouds, the thin atmosphere only allows certain types of clouds to form. The clouds are usually very faint and resemble pieces of cotton, very similar to the cirrus clouds of Earth.

“But just because they are thin and can not really be seen, it does not mean they can not have an effect on the dynamics of the climate,” said Victoria Hartwick, a graduate student at CU Boulder.

formation of clouds

In fact, temperatures at the same height as clouds could fluctuate warmer or colder at 18 degrees Fahrenheit. According to Brian Toon, who is a professor at CU Boulder:

“More and more climate models are discovering that the ancient climate of Mars, when rivers flowed through its surface and life could have originated, warmed with high-altitude clouds. It is likely that this discovery will become an important part of that idea to warm Mars. “

While Martian clouds are too weak and the atmosphere is too thin to produce rain, snow fell near the North Pole in 2008 and was witnessed by the Phoenix Mars Lander.

Frost and fog have also been seen on the red planet due to a water cycle that occurs even without water on the surface and an extremely thin atmosphere.

No doubt the red planet in its past could have life, but it should be noted that this discovery makes the idea that Mars is terraforming so that there may be optimal conditions in the upper part of the planet for life, in the way that we know her.

It should be noted that by official means it is known that there is life inside, but deny that there is life at the top. What’s your opinion about it? Watch the following video and leave us your comment below.
