Sir Isaac Netwotn’s three laws of motion. Three states of matter (solid, liquid, gas). We live on the third rock from the sun. Our metric system of measurement uses metre, litre, and gram. Morse code is a reliable system as the signal is made up of only three parts – a long ‘on’, the dash; a short ‘on’, the dot; and an ‘off’ signal. Do you know what SOS means in Morse code?

ATP – Adenosine Triphosphate

Adenosine Triphosphate
Adenosine Triphosphate
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is considered by biologists to be the energy currency of life. It is the high-energy molecule that stores the energy we need to do just about everything we do. It is present in the cytoplasm and nucleoplasm of every cell, and essentially all the physiological mechanisms that require energy for operation obtain it directly from the stored ATP.

Universal Gas Law

Universal Gas Law
Universal Gas Law
“Common examples of state variables are the pressure P, volume V, and temperature T. In the ideal gas law, the state of n moles of gas is precisely determined by these three state variables. If a property, e.g., enthalpy H, is defined as a combination of other state variables, then it too is a state variable.”

Different Types of Sleep Paralysis

According to an in-depth study performed in 1999, there are three types of hallucinations that can occur during sleep paralysis: “incubus”, “intruder”, and “unusual bodily experiences”.

Incubus

People feel intense pressure on their chests and they feel they cannot breath. However, this is only a mental game. It feels like they can’t breath because they are afraid. Also, the body is still in REM breathing mode which is very shallow. It would seem strange to anyone.

The Earth’s seasons

The Earth’s seasons are caused by three factors:

Sun track
Sun track

The Earth orbits the Sun once a year in a nearly circular orbit.

The Earth’s axis of rotation (the straight line through the center of the Earth between the north and south poles) is not perpendicular to the plane of the Earth’s orbit. The Earth’s axis is tilted by about 23.4° from the the direction perpendiular to the orbital plane.

The orientation of the Earth’s axis in space remains nearly constant even as the Earth revolves around the Sun. It always points in the general direction of the star Polaris.

Human spine

Human spineVertebrae are the 33 individual bones that interlock with each other to form the spinal column. The vertebrae are numbered and divided into regions: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum, and coccyx. Only the top 24 bones are moveable; the vertebrae of the sacrum and coccyx are fused.

Germany Outlines Three Laws of Robotics for Self-Driving Cars

Mike Brown September 8, 2016 Driverless cars

Germany is gearing up to lay down the ethical foundations for self-driving cars, banning A.I. from making decisions that could harm one group of people over another. The country’s transport minister has outlined the basis for future legal guidelines for driverless vehicles, rules that echo Isaac Asimov’s three laws of robotics, which manufacturers will be expected to work towards ahead of formal legalization.

In an interview with Wirtschaftswoche published Thursday (translated by A9T9 from German), transport minister Alexander Dobrindt stated there will be three key rules:

(1) “It is clear that property damage takes always precedence of personal injury.

(2) “There must be no classification of people, for example, on the size, age and the like.”

And

(3) “If something happens, the manufacturer is liable”

Disturbing – Researchers Finally Confirm That Cancer Is A Purely Man-Made Disease

In the United Kingdom alone, Cancer claims more than 150,000 lives each year. Statistics also show that about one in three people in the United Kingdom is likely to get cancer.

The researchers spent a great deal of time studying mummies, fossils, and classical literature before arriving at their conclusion.

What Are the Three Kinds of Blood Cells?

blood cells

Whole blood consists of 3 types of blood cells, suspended in a liquid called plasma. Blood circulates through the arteries and veins with each of the blood cell types — red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets — performing different functions throughout the body.
