Things You Should Know Before Ordering Steak at Your Favorite Restaurant!

If you like your steaks medium-rare, you need to be careful because you might not get what you are expecting in this day and age.

Most professional chefs will tell you for a medium-rare steak the temperature must be 135° to seal in the flavor and ensure the steak is tender.  The steak should also be allowed a little more time for that nice charring on the outside.

Today, ordering a medium-rare steak might end up being a great deal rarer than you were hoping for.  Many customers at their favorite restaurant have reported that when their order for a medium-rare is delivered to their table, the meat is almost completely raw!

So, Why Is My Medium-Rare Steak Raw?

It really has nothing to do with the cooking process, it’s the cost!

The cost for a high-quality rib eye is now $8 while a few years ago it was $6. We all know that the cost of living is on the rise from our rental costs to labor.  With restaurants, the competition is very high causing more high-end restaurants to try and outdo their competition both in food, décor, and even advertising.

Costs Effect The Cooking Process:

If a customer has to send their steak back because it’s under-cooked, the chef will put it back on the grill for a few minutes which will not increase the cost when it’s returned to the customer.

On the other hand, if a customer complains their steak is over-cooked, it has to be thrown out and the chef must start all over again and this leads to higher costs,  Today, profit margins are very tight and therefore a chef will show caution by under-cooking the steak.

How To Get Your Steak Just Right:

You should try to communicate with your waiter what you want in your steak. Instead of ordering a medium-rare steak, tell them you want a medium-rare + steak.

It will still be medium-rare but just cooked a little bit longer.  This will guarantee you get the steak your want so you can enjoy every morsel!  If you bring home a doggy bag, you should know how to reheat your steak without losing those incredible flavors,  Check out this link for great results.

I hope this will help you get the steak you are expecting the next time go out to eat!

A Pocket Shark That Glows in the Dark!

A new species of the pocket shark was found in the Gulf of Mexico.  It secretes a liquid that glows in the dark,  attracting its prey.

This is a very significant find because it’s the only other member of the  Mollisquama genus that has been identified, according to a study published in the  Zootaxa journal.

Named the American Pocket Shark (Mollisquama mississippiensis) was identified as a new species based on an analysis performed on a single 5½-inch-long male that was caught in the Gulf in 2010.

In Louisiana, researchers from Tulane University applied several different techniques including X-ray imaging and high-resolution CT scans to examine the specimen.  It was determined it was a different species of the pocket shark  (Mollisquama parini)  that was ever reported.  In 1979, a pocket shark was captured in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

Only two ever captured

Director of the Tulane Biodiversity Research Institute, Henry Bart, said in the history of science, these are the only two pocket sharks ever captured or reported.  He said that both sharks are separate species and from different oceans.

They are both extremely rare and the fact that only one pocket shark was reported from the Gulf of Mexico, this new species emphasizes how very little scientists know about the Gulf, especially in deeper waters. This has led scientists to question how many new species might be in the Gulf, yet to be discovered.

Both M. mississippiensis and M. parini have similar characteristics, they both have two rather large “pockets” near their front fins and gills. In a paper, the latest pocket shark has a fluid that glows and then attracts prey.

Even though both species have similarities, they also have notable differences, according to the Tulane scientists.  The M. mississippiensis has fewer vertebrae than the shark found in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.  Also, the species found in the Gulf has many light-producing organs known as photophores which have been found all over the body.

Tourist Unwittingly Poses With Highly Poisonous Australian Octopus

Why is nature so beautiful? Why does a short walk amidst nature has such a calming influence on our mind? Why does the sight of flowers, butterflies, rainbows, and animals fill our hearts with joy unspeakable?

While evolution and science can explain many facts of our daily existence, the answer to this profound puzzle lies a little beyond the reaches of present-day science, and in the realms of the super-conscious.

Nature is beautiful because it is a manifestation of everything that is fervently pulsating with life on this planet. In the midst of nature, our minds become calm because we feel the pull of this joyful cosmic consciousness.

For the most part, people will do anything to avoid crawling creatures, especially when it comes down to disgusting, slimy, dangerous, poison octopus. Octopuses seem to tick most people’s instincts just by looking the way they look, not taking the dangerous factor in consideration.

This particular octopus might not be big however it happens to make the list in most dangerous and venomous octopus’s we’ve seen. This guy means business and that is clearly shown on this video.

Take a look at this story as a young Irish tourist was fishing with friends in Bundaberg, Queensland, on July 12 when he decided to pose for a photograph with an eye-catching mollusk that he later learned was the highly venomous blue-ring octopus, local media reported.

Johnpaul Lennon, 24, is seen in the footage laughingly asking a friend to place the octopus on his bare skin a few times, pulling his arm away in trepidation, then letting the creature briefly rest on him.

This big bhe blue-ringed octopus is one of the most venomous animals in Australia, with a bite that is capable of causing paralysis. British backpacker Ross Saunders, who recorded the interaction, said that at the time the men didn’t realize the octopus was poisonous.

More Luck Than Wits

Sauders posted to Facebook about the incident saying, “Thankfully no one was hurt and we can laugh about how close to death and stupid we were.” Saunders also said that the amateur fishermen got the hook out of the octopus and released it back into the water.

Russia Wants to 3D-Print ‘Large Scale Structures’ on the Moon

Journeys to the moon are undertaking more and more; before, it was a feat to simply set foot on the moon, but now that we’ve done that, new endeavors are being planned, especially by Russia.

A spokesperson for the country’s space corporation Roscosmos told Russian state-owned news agency TASS that they’re working on building a lunar base on the moon by 2040.

How will they do this? With 3D printing technologies that use lunar soil.

The lunar base is the final part of a three-stage program which begins with sending a spacecraft to orbit the moon, according to The Moscow Times. Stage two, expected to take place between 2025 and 2034, will be sending a manned mission to the moon for the purpose of beginning construction on the base.

Stage three, of course, will involve completing the lunar base, utilizing “additive technologies and local resources” for the “construction of large-scale structures,” said the Roscosmos spokesperson, who also noted that this third stage would include “furnishing scientific and industrial objects with equipment.”

They plan on creating structures with the capability of supporting astronaut life on the moon, as well.

3D- Printed Spare Parts

In the past, Dmitry Rogozin, the Director-General of Roscosmos, told the Russian news agency RIA Novosti that the 3D printing will be used to create repair equipment as well as new parts for the technology to reduce the need for resupply missions.

The Russian aerospace company NPO Lavochkin also said that the 3D printing technology would use solar energy as its power source and moon dust as its resource for creating objects.

“We’re talking about creating a long-term base, not constantly manned, but visitable,” Rogozin told RIA Novosti in November of 2018. Therefore, Roscosmos plans to have “avatars” on the lunar base controlled by humans on Earth.

NASA also has plans in mind for creating a permanent presence on the moon – just one of the steps towards finally reaching Mars – and plans to begin sustainable lunar surface missions before 2030, conducted from NASA’s lunar “Gateway,” a small spaceship meant to hold both astronauts and science experiments while it orbits the moon.

Next on NASA’s agenda, however, is getting the first woman on the moon, and they plan to accomplish this mission, called “Artemis,” by 2024. Many challenges need yet to be overcome to make it possible for people to be on the moon for any extended amount of time, however, so the next several years are full of research, experiments, and trials.

Beach or Car Door? Optical Illusion Confuses the Internet

The National Institute of Health’s (NIH) Eye Institute defined an optical illusion as “something that plays tricks on your vision,” relating to the way our brains and eyes work together to see an image, and this new photo of a car door that looks like a stormy beach that has been shared over 1,000 times is trickier than most.

“If you can see a beach, ocean sky, rocks and stars then you are an artist, but it’s not a painting its lower part of the car gate which needs to be repaired,” user @nxyxm wrote.

Respondents have found it nearly impossible to identify what part of a car is pictured, but @nxyxm did is best to help them out:

“Focus on the dark side you will see the car gate…It’s a car door, the sealing panel under it is damaged, the bend in the door gives the illusion of a beach, the sealing panel is damaged and scratched which gives an illusion of water on the edge of a beach,” he commented.

When looking at a 2D image, the brain can be tricked since it doesn’t have all the information it needs to make sense of what it’s looking at – things like position, depth, and light. Scientists often use optical illusions to understand how the brain processes images.

The journal JNeurosci published a study recently looking at the Pinna-Brelstaff motion illusion where thick lines arranged into circles appear to rotate when one looks at them while moving their head back and forth.

How Fast Do We See?

Scientists scanned the brains of those who looked at it and found that people processed the still illusion the same way they would a moving object and that in the area of the brain critical for picking up visual motion, there was a processing gap of 15 milliseconds by the neurons. As a result, the non-moving image came alive!

The cartoonist W. E. Hill created another famous illusion in 1915 which continues to confuse those who look at it. The image makes it hard to distinguish whether one is looking at an old or a young woman.

Scientific Reports performed a study to discover if people’s own age biases affected their face perception subconsciously, and the results concluded that they did. Younger people picked out a young woman more often while older participants saw the old woman.

An author of the paper from Flinders, Mike Nicholls, told Newsweek at the time: “We were interested in how individual differences in traits, such as age, cause people to see things differently. The most interesting thing is that this bias seems to be sub-conscious. The image was only shown for half a second and observers were not told that they would have to make a judgement of age.”

An Incredible Jeweled-Dinosaur Discovery In Australia!

Excavators made an incredible find in the outback of Australia of Opal-encrusted Dinosaurs which seems to be a completely new species.

Phil Bell from the University of New England, Australia said they discovered approximately 60 bones from an adult dinosaur which included part of a brain case along with other bones from approximately 3 different animals.

The fossils were initially discovered in an opal mine in New South Wales in the 80s, donated to a museum then dismissed for approximately 30 years. This species has been named “ Fostoria dhimbangunmal”. It seems these dinosaurs date back from the mid-Jurassic period to the late Cretaceous which is approximately 175 million years ago. The Iguanodontian is a clade of herbivorous dinosaurs who were two-legged.

The discovery was published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

What are Opalized Fossils?

Opalized fossils are similar to other fossils accept they are preserved in silica, not rock. Opal forms in cavities of rocks and if a living part, such as a bone, is buried in the sand or clay before turning to stone, the opal can create a fossil replica of the buried object.

Partial skeletons of extinct reptiles have been formed and discovered in other areas of Australia but finding a complete opalized dinosaur skeleton is the rarest in the entire world. Scientists have found single bones or a tooth but to recover dozens of bones from one skeleton is extraordinary.

Originally, it was believed that the fossils came from just one dinosaur but upon further examination, they discovered they had 4 shoulder blades from different sized animals. The team finally identified 4 Fostoria skeletons from juveniles to adults. This clearly revealed these animals came from a herd. The team said this is the first time such a discovery has ever been made in Australia.

Women Think Better in Warmer Rooms, Study Suggests

While the study hasn’t been completely conclusive, recent findings have suggested that women think better in warmer rooms while men work better in lower temperatures ones.

Such findings may cause workplaces to think more deeply about their room temperatures and the effect it has on employees’ productivity.

The study occurred in Berlin where 542 students were recruited by researchers to take math, cognition, and verbal tests. Forty percent of the participants were female. First, the tests were taken in a room kept at 61.14 F, but then they were taken in another room at 90.63 F.

Overall, the women performed better on math and verbal tests in the warmer room while the men did better on those tests in the colder room. However, the cognitive tests were unaffected by temperature.

Warmer is better for everyone

“Our findings suggest that gender-mixed workplaces may be able to increase productivity by setting the thermostat higher than current standards,” the authors wrote.

Study co-author Agne Kajackaite, head of the Ethics and Behavioral Economics research group at WZB Berlin Social Science Center, told Newsweek: “There have been many studies showing that women prefer higher indoor temperatures than men. However, nobody looked at the effect of these differences in comfort on performance.

“We show that the battle for the thermostat is not just about comfort. It is much more—in our experiment, women’s cognitive functioning is the best at high temperatures, whereas men’s [is] at low temperatures. Importantly, the positive effect of increased temperatures on women’s performance is much stronger than the negative effect on men.”

Kajackaite continued: “This is just the first study looking at the effects of temperature on cognitive performance by gender. We ran the experiment with a homogeneous sample at a German university. More research looking at different groups—age, educational background, country—and different cognitive tasks is needed.”

Wouter Van Marken Lichtenbelt, a professor of ecological energetics and health at Maastricht University who has also published research on body temperature, told Newsweek that the study was written as if men had an opposite response to that of women, but “there is not one statistically significant effect observed in the data of the men.”

Wei Luo, a Ph.D. student at Maastricht University working with van Marken Lichtenbelt, confessed that the methods used were not wholly sufficient as the order of the different tests was fixed and the participants could have simply been tired. “This makes comparison between tests difficult,” said LuoHe.

The paper also lacked any information concerning participants’ clothes or the length of the tests, said van Marken Lichtenbelt, and this information could have had a significant impact on the results.

However, the results still strongly suggest that offices would be more productive if they slightly increased their room temperatures, agreed Van Marken Lichtenbelt, who also did a study in 2015 that found that exposures to temperatures outside our comfort zone could affect things like diabetes and obesity.

While the study hasn’t been completely conclusive, recent findings have suggested that women think better in warmer rooms while men work better in lower temperatures ones.

Thorny Devil Lizard Walks Using Hypnotic Movements

We feel like we don’t show you enough videos of lizards and sometimes they can be fascinating animals, and they also have a lot of skills. Just check out this thorny devil lizard and his smart way crossing the road.

A thorny devil crosses a quiet road in the Tanami Desert, NT. Like chameleons, these unique lizards walk with a rocking motion to simulate spiky debris blowing in the wind. Amazing, isn’t it?

Lizards are little reptiles that have a long tail, eyelids, and for the most part, have four legs with five toes on each foot. They can vary in color and also in size. Most lizards love to eat creepy little crawlies like this guy, and that is the reason they are called insectivores.

Lizards are also very significant because they help to control the bug populace. The lizards that eat little creatures and also birds are called carnivores. A couple of lizards eat plants, and they are called herbivores.

Lizards are a group of animals which we haven’t share a common ancestor of millions of years which is really fascinating for some people.

They are brilliant creatures, and the level of interaction with them is different from the interaction with dogs and cats, and that is why a lot of people consider having a lizard as a pet.

Why did the lizard cross the road?

The thorny devil, or also knows as the mountain devil, they are covered in spikes and can puff themselves to appear more prominent, and yes they are known for their funny walk.

The thorny lizard’s unique gait involves strolling, stopping often, and rocking back and forth. This characteristic delayed, unsteady movement appears very slow.

Probably, their jerky movements and constant freezing in place help conceal them if a predator spots them out in the open.

Crossing the road can be really dangerous for them, because of their camouflage they get run over really often. The thorny devil is a lizard that has to stay still for a long period in order to camouflage itself, which results in some of these creatures getting run over.

They are also very vulnerable due to natural loss and disturbance. That’s why there is an organization who help these animals because even though they are called devils, they are actually harmless and they say that they are lovely animals.

People did no justice for this animal by giving such a harsh name to such a non-dangerous animal!
