A Unique Creature on Earth That Can Never Be Killed

Earth is the only planet in our solar system, our galaxy, and potentially our entire universe that sustains life. Us humans believe we’re practically indestructible, but it turns out there’s a unique creature tougher than us that can’t be killed. Meet the tardigrade, one of the most resilient animals in the world – and possibly the universe. TIMESTAMPS It’s also called the water bear. 1:18 It’s really small. 2:20 It’s really, really old. 3:08 It can live anywhere. 4:02 It’s (mostly) harmless. 5:00 It’s practically unkillable. 6:04 It survives extinction events. 10:45 It might survive on another planet. 12:33 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -A tardigrade is commonly called a water bear because it is most often found in water, where it prefers to dwell, and because of its slow gait, which resembles that of a bear. -The biggest full-grown tardigrade is about 0.5 mm or about 1/50 of an inch, which is smaller than flea and tick larva. -The earliest fossils we have of the tardigrade species date back to the Cambrian period, some 530 million years ago. -Tardigrades have been found on the high-altitude peaks of the Himalayas, in deep trenches in the ocean, in mud volcanoes, and in tropical rainforests. -These unique creatures move into a new environment and help to establish an ecosystem, not unlike a gold prospector setting up shop out in the frontier. -Many tardigrades can enter a dehydrated state to survive almost any dangerous outside environment. They curl up into a barrel shape, their bodies become glass-like, and they put themselves in stasis, during which time they’re pretty much indestructible. -The tardigrade has survived all possible extinction events, from the Ordovician-Silurian extinction 440 million years ago all the way up to the extinction events that took out the dinosaurs. -The conditions on Mars are within the tardigrades’ capabilities to survive, assuming that a sufficient amount of water exists to support them.

People in Sweden Get a Chip in Their Hands

Not to sound cliché here, but the future is now! Technology is getting closer than you think…like under your skin! It all started in Sweden in the spring of 2018. Since then, about 4,000 people have gotten microchips put into their hands. Although this recent implantable form is new to us, the technology has been around for decades. For example, ear chips are used to register almost all farm animals. And this implantable chip for people is supposed to make our lives a lot easier. The chip is tiny, and it’s surgically inserted into the hand in the area between the thumb and index finger. In this video, we'll tell you what is this thing actually for.

You can also use it to get access to all your social media accounts. - A chip is basically a storage place for digital information. It can contain not only the details of your bank accounts and your purchases, your ID, and passwords to your house, office, and social media profiles, but also medical information, such as your blood type or a list of things you're allergic to. - he company that manufactures these microchips is planning to invent implants that can track a wearer’s live vital signs and inform them when there’s something wrong with their health. - Some skeptics are sure that these chips will soon have GPS trackers in them. It’s quite possible that it’ll all start with big companies wanting to track their employees’ locations. The fact that certain businesses want to provide this service for free is really what got people a little uneasy about this point. - There were concerns that a small metallic foreign body could trigger cancer. But the risks of cancer caused by RFID have since been found to be virtually nonexistent for humans and negligible for animals. - Doctors started implanting electronic devices and machine-like metal into people a long time ago. The first ever electrocardiac pacemaker implantation was performed in 1958 at the Karolinksa Institute in Sweden by surgeons Rune Elmqvist and Åke Senning. - Another example of technology helping people live longer and more comfortably is bionic prosthetics. They’re built to imitate the work of a lost organ, and they work through nerve impulses.

If You See This In a Public Bathroom, Call the Police Immediately!

How to Protect Your Privacy. There are places where we all want to feel safe and protected from outside invasions: for instance, your home, your car, and public restrooms. It turns out some people are placing tiny cameras in coat hooks at public restrooms to spy on you. Watch this video till the end to find out how to recognize that threat and what you can do to protect yourself and your family. TIMESTAMPS How to recognize hidden cameras in public bathrooms 1:02 Where do criminals get the cameras 2:52 How do these cameras work 3:42 How to determine if the hook has a camera in it 4:02 What are the hook cameras actually for? 4:32 Cases of spying using hook cameras in public bathrooms 4:54 What other devices can be dangerous? 6:24 How can you protect yourself? 8:55 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -When entering a public bathroom, always look around and pay attention to any coat hooks you see. Hidden inside these hooks are tiny discrete cameras capable of capturing not only still pictures but recorded footage as well. -Amazon and eBay offer such cameras to anyone willing to pay, and they cost less than 10 bucks. -Since these tiny spy cameras are wireless, they can be recorded remotely. This means that somebody has a remote control which is also wireless and works through walls. -Some clear signs a hook is a spying device are: it’s a double hook attached to the wall where it’s of no use, and you notice some blinking light on it. -Coat-hook cameras are supposed to be for home security. -Since 2016, there have been several cases in Florida of these tiny cameras being discovered in public bathrooms and rest areas. A 2015 case in England made headlines when a young woman spotted a hidden camera recording her while she was taking a shower in her hotel. -A survey conducted by the Which? Group found that eight of the fifteen devices you use on a regular basis including TVs, baby monitors and even toys can be hacked. -Always change default passwords and log-ins to devices that are connected to the Internet. Use sticky tape to cover microphones and cameras on these gadgets so that cyber-criminals can't see what you're doing and eavesdrop on your personal life.

-The more exposure your phone has to the water, the more water will get inside the case and damage the internal components.
-If the power stays on, the phone runs the risk of short-circuiting, which will cause more damage to the mechanisms inside.
-If you can take the battery out, do it immediately. Removing the energy supply will help prevent the phone from being fried.
-Remove all the covers and plugs that cover the charging port, headphone port, or any gap or slot in the phone. These can trap moisture inside the phone or be damaged themselves.
-Avoid using paper as particles can come loose and clog up the ports of the phone.
-The heat produced by a hair dryer can cause significant damage to the internal components of your phone, and vaporizing the moisture inside the phone can just spread it further.
-Shaking your phone can get rid of a lot of those pesky droplets of moisture stuck inside the phone.
-Put the phone in a plastic bag, and suck out the air with a vacuum cleaner or shop vac.
-Uncooked rice is naturally absorbent, and water can flow right out of a phone and into the rice. Put the phone and all its parts in a bowl or jar of rice, and leave it there for at least 48 hours.
-Try submerging your phone in circuit-safe cleaner or pure grain alcohol, which will absorb the moisture, clean any impurities, and ultimately evaporate without leaving a conductive residue.
-Don’t keep the phone in a jar of rice next to the sink or washing machine, for instance, where accidents can happen.
-It is very, very important to give your phone at least 2 days to dry.
-It’s possible that you have your warranty through a third party vendor, such as Asurion or SquareTrade. They might cover accidental spills or submersion.
-Once you’re sure your phone is dry, you can plug it back in and try to turn it on. If it powers up, you’re in business.
