Apr 17, 2018 0

Women from European descent are twice as likely to be naturally blonde as men, according to new research.  The largest ever genetic study on pigmentation looked at nearly 300,000 people of European descent.  It found 124 new genes that play a major role in determining human hair colour variation.  The report’s authors say they are not sure why there are so many more blonde women than men, calling it an “intriguing mystery”.  The study which is published in Nature Genetics, builds on previous genetic studies that had only identified a dozen or so hair colour genes.  The data was supplied by the UK Biobank, American DNA testing company 23andMe and the International Visible Trait Genetics Consortium and their study partners in the Netherlands, Australia and Italy.  They chose people of European descent because of their variety in hair colours.  They found men were three times as likely as women to have black hair.  ...

Sex Drive or Libido is defined as desire for sexual activity or urge for sex; one may or may not act on this urge. It is different from Erectile Dysfunction in which a man has the urge but is unable to have a sustained strong penile erection to perform the act.

Gains of Humility

Sep 2, 2017 0

Humility is a virtue possessed by few; I am not talking of religious humility which refers to acceptance of God as the creator. I am talking about relating with other mortals. Humility is meaningful if in-spite of accomplishments whether in business, bureaucracy, academia or corporate, you are still approachable and recognize the attributes of others. Humble people have a modest estimate or low estimate of their achievements and are open to ideas. They accept criticisms and accept faults genuinely. Humility knows no ego, the opposite of humility is pride or arrogance. Humility is different from low esteem, low self worth; it is also different from being from humble background. If you have humility, you are more likely to be happy than if you are arrogant/proud ...
