These 3 things should not be eaten by mistake at night, otherwise your sleep will deteriorate

 These 3 things should not be eaten by mistake at night, otherwise your sleep will deteriorate

Food to Avoid Before Sleep: Many times before going to sleep we consume some things which are responsible for not getting sleep. Let's know what things should not be consumed before sleeping

Things to do for better sleep: Many times it happens that despite the tiredness of the day, it becomes difficult to sleep at night and even after many attempts, sleep does not come. For this one listens to songs, one takes a shower, one does a head massage and one reads a book. But still this attempt is not successful. Have you ever wondered what could be causing this? In fact many times before going to sleep we consume certain things which are responsible for not getting sleep. So let us tell you that if you want to sleep peacefully at night, then avoid these foods before you go to bed.

Before going to sleep many people consume things like beef, pasta, potatoes, chips, bananas, apples, rice, bread and refined grains which are not suitable. These things not only hinder sleep, but also cause weight gain and restlessness. So, these things should be avoided before sleeping.

Consuming sweet things

Many people have the habit of eating sweets after dinner and consume puddings, ice creams and sweets as sweets. This habit is not good at all. Eating any kind of sweets at night plays a special role in helping you sleep. So food swallowed before eating at night should be avoided.


Many people have a habit of eating chocolate after dinner and they eat chocolate after dinner or before going to bed. Although chocolate is good for improving your taste buds and making you happy, consuming chocolate at night can spoil your eyesight. Therefore, consumption of chocolate at night should be avoided


Garlic undoubtedly plays a special role in improving your health, but it can also cause you to lose sleep. The nutrients in garlic may be good for your bones and health, but they also work against sleep deprivation. Therefore, those who often have trouble sleeping at night should avoid consuming garlic at night.

70 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the latest attack: 10 Facts

 70 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the latest attack: 10 Facts

Ukraine war: Russian artillery shelled several residential areas in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city. Eleven civilians have been killed in Kharkiv’s ongoing shelling. 

According to Ukraine, more than 70 Ukrainian soldiers were kill in a Russian rocket attack today as a massive Russian military convoy approached the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

In Kharkiv, an Indian student was kill in the shelling.

A Russian rocket attack killed more than 70 Ukrainian servicemen, and “barbaric” shelling killed dozens of civilians.

According to the MEA, an Indian student was kill in shelling in Ukraine this morning. On Tuesday, Russian soldiers blew up a government building in Haveri, Karnataka, killing the student.

Russian artillery shelled several residential areas in Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second-largest city.

According to Kyiv, since the invasion began last Thursday, 352 civilians have been kill, including 14 children. For the first time, Russia has admitted that it has suffered losses.

According to the UN’s refugee agency, more than 500,000 people have fled Ukraine since Russia’s invasion.

The latest satellite images show a 64-kilometer-long Russian army convoy north of Kyiv’s capital.

The first round of talks between Russia and Ukraine yielded no results.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine sparked widespread outrage in the sports world, with the country being bare from competing in this year’s Football World Cup and the International Olympic Committee calling for a global sporting ban.

For the 2nd in a week, India voted against a UN resolution related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. New Delhi also welcomed Moscow and Kyiv’s border talks with Belarus.

Due to national security concerns, the US expelled 12 Russian diplomats from the United Nations.

Amazon Looking to Expand Satellite Internet Project Kuiper to India

 Amazon Looking to Expand Satellite Internet Project Kuiper to India

Amazon Project Kuiper, the e-commerce giant’s initiative to offer broadband internet via satellites, may soon be expanded to India as the Jeff Bezos-owned company is looking for an executive to handle the project’s licensing strategy in India and Asia-Pacific countries. Amazon had announced in 2020 that it will invest more than $10 billion (roughly Rs. 79,900 crores) to build a network of 3,236 satellites in order to provide high-speed broadband Internet services globally to people who lack such access.

Amazon is looking for a “talented Business Development Strategy Lead who is ready to take charge of operational planning and support [the company’s] strategy for [its] business plans in India.” The job posting was first spotted by Tech Crunch.

“The Kuiper Country Development team is focused on launching and operating the Kuiper service across the globe. A successful candidate will be both entrepreneurial and highly analytical, able to work extremely effectively in a matrix organisation and adept at understanding how businesses work in India and how to create innovative, cutting edge solutions for our customers,” the job description read.

Amazon had previously announced that it will invest over $10 billion (roughly Rs. 79,900 crores) to launch 3,236 satellites to provide high-speed broadband Internet services to people who lack such service. The “Project Kuiper” will be a constellation of low-Earth orbit (LEO) satellites — much like the Starlink network being built out by Elon Musk’s SpaceX.

Earlier this year, Amazon announced deals for scores of launches to deploy a constellation of satellites in low orbit around the Earth. As per the company, it has contracts in place with Ariane space, Blue Origin, and United Launch Alliance (ULA) for procurement of launch vehicles.

In fact, Amazon reportedly asked the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for approval to deploy an additional 4,500 satellites making it a total of 7,774 satellites for the Project Kuiper. Amazon is looking to launch and operate two prototype satellites by the end of 2022.

New Sustainable Materials for the Future

 New Sustainable Materials for the Future

Materials science is one of the most advanced fields, and its applications are practically immediate. And while its discoveries may not make for splashy headlines, the impact of this discipline on our lives is significant, even if each new discovery is not very visible: researchers are constantly coming up with new materials with surprising properties or improving on those known to us for centuries, and the products of this research end up being commonly used by all of us, almost without us noticing. We may soon see applications from these five recent innovations in our daily lives.


Removing frost from a freezer requires additional energy-consuming systems, so preventing ice from forming on interior surfaces is not only good for the consumer, but also for the environment. This is one of the reasons why material scientists are looking for new compounds with microscopic structures that stop water and other substances from adhering. 

Numerous examples of hydrophobic surfaces, which repel water, can be found in nature. The most typical case is the lotus leaf, and for almost 80 years we have seen the applications of hydrophobic materials such as Teflon. The microscopic structure of certain surfaces can also confer this property, for example in the plumage of birds or in the tiny hairs that cover the legs or body of aquatic insects.

Another natural example is the carnivorous plant Nepenthes, also known as the pitcher plant, whose inner surface is so slippery for insects that they cannot avoid falling to the bottom, where they are digested. Inspired by the slippery coating of these plants, a team of researchers at Harvard University’s Wyss Institute created the technology of slippery liquid-infused porous surfaces, or SLIPS for short.

This material has a nanostructure to which a special lubricant is bonded that forms a perfectly smooth surface, much smoother than any solid could be, and on which ice will not deposit. In addition, if the coating is scratched, the lubricating fluid flows out, filling the crack and keeping the surface uniform.

The new material is already being commercialised by the start-up Adaptive Surface Technologies, created by the Wyss Institute to exploit its numerous applications, from preventing ice from building up on aircraft wings or other structures exposed to low temperatures, to non-stick food containers that use a safe and sustainable coating. Other research groups are also making progress in the study and properties of SLIPS materials, and it is possible that in the near future our freezers will incorporate such passive anti-frost solutions that consume no energy.


Some 2.2 billion people worldwide do not have clean running water in their homes. But even purification becomes a secondary issue to the main problem, the water itself, a rare commodity for the more than 2.1 billion people living in arid regions. Researchers are also looking for innovative solutions to solve the water problem, and some of them are based on new materials capable of absorbing moisture from the environment even in the driest climates.  

An example of this, also inspired by nature, is a material created by researchers at Rice University in Houston. By mimicking the wings of a beetle able to trap water from the air in the Namibian desert, the scientists built a “hygroscopic scaffold”, a kind of forest of carbon nanotubes capable of attracting water molecules from the air and trapping them inside. And, like a sponge, the water is released by squeezing, and the material is ready to be used again. If commercialised, this material could make it possible to manufacture objects such as moisture-retentive clothing that would allow people to inhabit extremely arid areas, as in the science fiction saga Dune.

But while carbon nanotubes are old news in new materials science, metal-organic networks, or MOFs for short, are not so well known. These are porous materials made of metals and carbon compounds that are currently being investigated for a variety of applications. In one such application, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California have experimented with a low-cost, solar-powered MOF that is capable of harvesting 0.7 litres of water per day per kilo of material in a desert environment. The start-up Water Harvesting, created to develop the product, is working to create devices that can bring water to people in the world’s driest areas without the need for a power supply.


We all know that diamond is the hardest material, capable of scratching any other solid, which is why it is used in industry, mining and construction. However, other materials are challenging diamond for the hardness throne, such as wurtzite boron nitride or the mineral lonsdaleite, although they are so rare and difficult to synthesise that it has not been possible to experiment with them on a large scale. But for years, humans have been able to create synthetic materials harder than diamond, using elements such as carbon nanorods (solid, as opposed to nanotubes) or carbon plate-nanolattices. These materials could be incorporated in the coming years to improve the strength of aircraft and spacecraft structures.

Steel is the king of metals when it comes to toughness. But by manipulating its microscopic structure to resemble that of natural materials such as bamboo or bone, researchers have managed to increase its strength. The idea is to create a gradient in the size of the metal’s grains so that they are smaller on the surface and coarser towards the inside. The resulting material can withstand more stress than normally manufactured material (thanks to the smaller grains on the outside) and is also more ductile as it approaches the breaking point (thanks to the larger grains in the centre), making it possible to detect failure in time to do something about it before the steel part breaks. The authors are studying these materials for their potential applications in structures or mechanical parts such as those used in the automotive industry.

However, although steel is now recognised as one of the most sustainable building materials, it still has a considerable carbon footprint. Industry is looking at various ways to reduce it, but research into new materials is also seeking alternatives that match steel’s mechanical properties while improving its environmental footprint. For example, intermetallic materials, special types of alloys that are harder and lighter than steel, have been studied for years as their strength is comparable to stainless steel. Researchers are working to address their weaknesses, such as lower ductility and higher brittleness, which would clear the way for their use in many important industrial products.


A key battlefield in sustainability is that of vehicles, especially in road and air transport. Hybrid and electric motors have become more commonplace in cars in recent years, but while propulsion systems are the main way to lower the environmental impact, they are not the only way. New materials science is also studying metal alloys—including intermetallic materials, mentioned above—that can lighten the weight and thus reduce energy consumption. For example, steel has been combined with aluminium for decades to make it lighter, but the resulting metal is more brittle. Recent research has found that by manipulating the nanostructure of the material to disperse the crystals that form, it is possible to obtain a steel-aluminium that is less brittle and as strong as titanium, but much cheaper.

Another area in which vehicle energy consumption can be reduced is aerodynamics. And while design and shape are crucial, new materials can also bring surprising improvements. Inspired by the dimples in golf balls, which cut the drag caused by air resistance in half, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created an object that can alter its surface properties to suit aerodynamic conditions.

They have designed a hollow ball of soft silicone covered by another, stiffer layer of silicone and a mechanism that allows the air pressure inside to be regulated. As air pressure decreases, the surface begins to wrinkle and form golf ball-like dimples that reduce air friction. In fact, these rough textures are also used in footballs and technical clothing for athletics; the advantage of the material built by these researchers, led by engineer Pedro Reis, is that the wrinkling of the surface can be controlled at will to modify the aerodynamic properties.

Other researchers are working on such materials with morphing capability, or that change shape by controllable mechanisms. Using elastic materials, Reis has also developed cylinders with grooves whose depth can be modified to improve the aerodynamics of their shape. In this case, the engineer was inspired by the morphology of the large Saguaro cactus, whose vertical grooves reduce aerodynamic drag, making the plant structure more robust in the strong desert winds.

18 Various Types of Monkeys Breed found on Indian Mainland

18 Various Types of Monkeys Breed found on Indian Mainland

The fact cannot be denied that like the evergreen plants and trees, the existence of animals is essential for maintaining the ecological balance. The presence of different kinds or species of animals is too important for “us” the human beings as because as due to the presence of green trees we get sufficient amount of oxygen similarly because of the presence of animals plays a vital role in the nature in the sense that they eliminate threats that can cause a damaging effect. For e.g. there may be a plant or shrub that can be harmful to the growth of other animals and it is co-incidentally the primary food for a particular animal.  Similarly, a carnivore eating carcasses prevents it from getting rotten and thereby keeping nature healthy. In this way the animal’s becomes key in maintaining the balance. In fact, they are like an ornament which glorifies and enriches the torso of Mother Nature with their existence.

Fortunately, our country India has been blessed with the presence of varieties of animal breeds. Different types of Birds, Tigers, Monkeys, Elephants, you name it and you will find them all. In today’s topic, I am going to discuss different types of Monkeys Breed that are found on Indian Mainland. Although few of them are slowly becoming extinct primarily due to several factors but still they are considered a key subject in natures manual:


(1)Rhesus Macaque:

This species of monkey is one of the rarest breeds found in India. They are found in most parts of South, Central and Southeast Asia like India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Southern China and nearby areas. They can be seen scattered everywhere from grasslands, forested areas and leading up to human habitats. The rhesus macaque is brown leafy or dull in coloring and is new pink-faced, which is bereft of a pelt. Its tail ranges about a medium height of 20.7 to 22.90cm in length. A fully grown male monkey measures 53 cm on average as well as weigh regarding 7. 6 kg. Females are small, averaging 47 cm long. They weigh about 3 kilos.They have heavy scapulae as well as a wide ribs cage. This monkey has 32 teeth’s which is similar to humans. This type of monkeys is known for their self-awareness because they are extremely animated communicators by the way of body gestures through there flexed muscles which also indicates there alertness, the presence of mind and intelligence.

(2)Bonnet Macaque:

These breeds of monkeys are known to have the longest tails of all other monkeys in India. They are usually found in nearest parts of the Indian Ocean, and also the places like the Godavari and Tapti Rivers. These types of monkeys have a distinct type of behavior in a way they are diurnal in nature and are about 35 to 60 cm long with the tail that can be as long as 68cms which generally starts 35 cm. An adult male can weigh from 5.5 kgs to 9 kgs and a female monkey can weigh about 3.5 kg to 4.5 kgs. There estimated lifetime is about 35 years. In this kind of monkey’s males are dominant over the females. Their group is characterized by the male which is the leader of the pack. Body gestures include smacking of the lip, opening or closing of the mouth very rapidly with the tongue stuck in between their teeth’s and pressing of the lips against each other which gives a sound. They also make a grimacing sound which is a sign of submission of a weak individual surrendering to the stronger opposition during a fight which also is an indicator of pulling back of the upper lip and showing teeth. They also bear a distinct call which is an alarm against leopards, pythons and other predators.

(3)Assam Macaque:

Like the Rhesus, the Assam Macaque is also one of the oldest monkeys in the Southeastern parts of Asia mostly in Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, and Tripura in northeastern India, into northern and southeast of Myanmar. They body complexion include their face which is dark brown and purple in color.  On the head, they have a dark bunch of hairs which goes down their cheeks which are then directed back side of the years. They are usually 51 to 73.5 cms in length and the tail is about 15 to 30 cm in length. A fully grown Assam Macaque is about to 10 kilos in weight. These animals are both comfortable living in the land as well as in the trees. They travel in groups that range between 13to35 in numbers which consist about 31% adult females and the adult males are about 16% and the rest young ones of different ages.

(4) Arunachal Macaque:

This monkey breed hails from the Arunachal Pradesh which is in the North Eastern part of India. It was discovered in the year 2004. This type of monkey is also known as the “deep forest monkey” and it is believed that there breed is slowly on the way of elimination and hence one of the valuable breeds of animals found in the country. The features of this monkey are similar to that of the Assam, Tibetan and Bonnet macaque which are found in Southern part of India. They do have a large physique with a dark face and along with it comes a short tail.

(5) Stump-Tailed Macaque:

Also known as the bear monkey, they are found mostly in South Asia in the areas of Assam and Meghalaya to eastern Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura. A slow-moving creature, they mostly feed on fruits, different types of vegetation that include seeds, roots, and leaves. However, they also eat crabs in the fresh water, different frogs, insects as well as birds as well. These monkeys have a usual covering of fur in its body, but it does not have hairs. The Males grow about 51.7 to 65 cm long and they weigh about 9.7 to 10.2 kilos in weight and females are 48.5 to 58.5 cm in height and about 7.5 to 9.1 kilos in weight. Due to its thick covering in the body, it enables these types of monkeys to live in cold climates and in a height as many as 4000 meters. These types of monkeys are usually found in evergreen forests where there are broadleafs, and places of high altitude depending upon the amount of rainfall in that place.

(6)Lion-Tailed Macaque:

The unique characteristics of this type of monkey are that it has a white main surrounding its neck like that of a lion and the entire color of its physique is black. This hairless faced monkey has black facial colour as well with about 61 cm in length and weights from 2 to 10 kilos. Its tail length is about 25 cm and it has a thick black tuft at the end which is why they called the Lion Tailed Macaque. They live in a group of 10 to 20 animals which have more females and lesser number of males. They mainly feed on fruits, seeds, flowers, and different kinds of plants. Sometimes they also hunt small hatchlings and also are fond of pigeon eggs. They live on a particular territory and whenever they are attacked by other groups they cry loudly and if it does not work they are not afraid to engage in a quarrel. Usually their survival period is about 20 to 30 years.

(7)Pig-Tailed Macaque:

These types of monkeys are usually found in southern Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. These monkeys are available mostly in rainforests up to 2000 meters and in plantations and gardens as well. The large males usually grow from 5 kilos to 15 kilos in weight. Their tail is short an erect which is similar to a pig and that’s why the name. The back side of the monkey is dark and they have light lower parts.  Their diet consists of fruits, seeds, berries, cereals, fungi and invertebrates, in a sense that they are omnivorous in nature. These types of monkeys can climb very efficiently, and also they are fond of water. They are usually found in groups, with males are primarily chosen as leader based on physical strength. A female is chosen on the basis of heredity. When a dominant female is the leader of the group, in that case a male manages the conflicts within the group. The maturity of sex reaches in between ages 3 to 5.

(8)Crab-Eating Macaque:

This unique species of monkey is also known as the long-tailed macaque as well as cynomolgus monkey in the labs. Their tail is longer than their body length hence they are called long-tailed. The reason they are called crab-eating monkey is because they are often seen in beaches hunting for crabs. They are mostly found in the south-eastern parts of Asia. These monkeys usually feed on fruits, vegetables and insects as well. They are mostly seen in rainforests, temples, villages, mangrove forests as well as in shrublands. These monkeys were also seen in Thailand and Myanmar. They are about 38 to 55 cm long with weighing from to 9 kilos which is heavier than females who weigh from to 6 kilos. They do have short limbs but their long tail is used to balance themselves when they leap from one tree to the other. Their bottom is light grey in colour and the tail can be brown or grey. The males have moustaches as well as whiskers in the cheek and the females have whiskers in cheek only. They also have a distinctive white markings or spots on the ears. They travel in groups from 3 to 20 with fewer males than females. Their group is mainly female dominated group. In case of conflict the dominate leader plays the role to settle it. At the time of reproduction, an infant monkey of this species is about 320 grams in weight.

(9)White Cheeked Macaque:

One of the few endangered species in the world this breed is found mainly in Mêdog County in the southeastern part of Tibet and Arunachal Pradesh in northeastern India. They are mostly found in broad-leafed forests. They look similar to the Assam macaque, and that was the primary reason why many believed that both are of the same species. They are characterised by more visible whiskers, a thick hair bunch on the neck. Their whiskers are long which makes them different from other species of this breed. The tail of this creature does not have any hairs on the tail. These types of monkeys are slowly getting obsolete from nature. It was only in the year 2016 these rare monkeys were found in the forests of Arunachal Pradesh. Prior to that it was thought that they only existed in Tibet.

(10)Gray Langur:

This type of monkey is one of the oldest monkeys found in the sub-continent. They are usually found in the areas of urban in the subcontinental parts of India. These creatures prefer to live in high altitudes and can be found in about 13000 ft high in the Himalayas. They are black faced with unusually long limbs. Few species like the Kashmir Gray Langur or the Tufted Gray Langur have black feet as well. These are one of the biggest breeds of monkeys found all over Asia. A full grown male weighs about 18kilos and a female weighing up to 11 kilos. They can leap as many as 4.6 meters horizontally and 12.2 meters vertically. Other types of these species include: Tarai Gray Langur, Northern Plains Gray Langur, Southern Plains Gray Langur etc.These monkeys are also found in human habitats and mostly feed on vegetations, like seeds, plants, shoots, leaves etc. Basically they are herbivorous in nature.

(11)Golden Langur:

These monkeys are found in western parts of Assam in India. These are one of the most beautiful species of monkeys and also becoming obsolete very soon. The body fur of the Golden Langur can be cream to golden in color. On top of the head male langur and in the chest the hair colors are darker and often rust, whereas, in case of females, the furs are lighter, silver color and white in nature. A golden langur has black colored face with the tail measuring as tall as 50 cm. These monkeys travel in troupes ranging from 8 to 50 in number and there are more females to one male. The smallest group of this monkeys that was seen were 4 whereas the largest was 22 in number with an average of 8.2 per group. These monkeys are mainly herbivorous feeding mostly on plantations, herbs, seeds, roots and different types of plants and leaves.

(12)Capped Langur:

This unique breed of monkeys are found mainly in India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Myanmar. These types of monkeys are mostly common in North-eastern parts of India. The fur of this type of breed has grey to black on the back with whitish cream color or golden yellow on top of the belly. They have yellowish-red hue on their cheek as well as on the ears and the palms and the soles of the foot are blackish color. Its other features are a sacculated belly to assist within the breakdown associated with cellulose. The creature has bigger salivary boucles to assist it in digesting of meals. The tail of the langur is actually longer compared to head as well as body mixed. An adult male is about 68.4 to 70 cms tall and the height of a female is from 59 to 67 cm. The length of the tail varies from 94 cm to 104 cm and for females it is approximately 78 cm to 90 cm. Also, the weight of a fully grown male is from 11.5 to 14 kg and the female weighs about 9.5 kgs to 11.5 kgs. These monkeys are diurnal by nature and mainly survive on fruits, plantations and green vegetations. They can be mainly found in the sub-tropical, evergreen forests.

(13)Nilgiri Langur:

The Nilgiri Langur is a kind of Old goof found in the actual Nilgiri Hillsides of the Traditional western ghats within South India. Its variety also includes Kodagu in KarnatakaKodayar Slopes in Tamil Nadu, and many more hilly places in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. This particular primate offers glossy dark fur upon its entire body and fantastic brown hair on the head. It really is similar in dimensions and long-tailed like the grey langurs. The females have a white-colored patch associated with fur within the inner upper leg. It usually lives in soldiers of 9 to 10 monkeys. The diet includes fruits, shoots and simply leaves. The types are categorized as susceptible due to environmental destruction as well as poaching because of its fur and also flesh, the particular latter considered to have aphrodisiac properties. The average weight of males is about 9.1 to 14.8 kilos and a grown female weighs from 10.9 to 12 kilos.
