What is bone marrow?
Bone marrow is a spongy material found inside major bones. Bone marrow is the place where stem cells are produced. They mature and develop into red and white blood cells and platelets.

5 Incredible Tips to Increase Your Longevity

Chronicle of a grand old lady
A 115 years grand old lady amazed the scientists with her long life and above all she was healthy and disease free. But recently she has passed away.
The Dutch researchers who studied her stem cells found only two of them. It means her biological clock has reached its last hour. They reported that cell division cannot last forever and a person’s life span may be limited by stem cells' ability to divide efficiently.
The scientists state that the telomere lengths can also specify a person’s life span. These are protective caps on chromosomes that wear down over time. As a person ages the length of telomeres shortens. In this grand old lady’s case the telomeres were extremely short. And that’s the story of a grand old lady.

Why Should You Daydream

Even as a child, I loved to write, I used to gaze at the clouds and suddenly some idea would pop up and I would start writing about it. Days and years passed, I did not even think about a career in writing, but while I am cooking several words would just swirl in my head. I would pen it down in my spare time. In short, day dreaming turned me into a blogger.

It’s a taboo to daydream; this is what we are taught in school. But Tricia Woolfrey co-author of the Inside Job says when we dream; we get into an alpha state, which is the place between sleeping and walking. This is when we open up the part of our mind where all memories are stored.
