Lifetime of a Dynastes Hercules Rhinoceros Beetle - Incredible Metamorphosis In Timelapse



Amazing Montage - The Hercules beetle (Dynastes hercules, Dynastinae) is a rhinoceros beetle native to the rainforests of Central America, South America, Lesser Antilles, and the Andes. They are large beetles, with some males reaching 17.5 cm including the horn, and a slightly iridescent coloration to their elytra, which also vary in color from beetle to beetle, and even depending on the humidity. Dynastes hercules is highly sexually dimorphic, with only males exhibiting the characteristic horn. Several subspecies have been named, though there is still some uncertainty as to the validity of the named taxa. Reports suggest the Hercules beetle is able to carry up to 850 times its body mass but actual measurements on a much smaller (and relatively stronger: see square-cube law) species of rhinoceros beetle shows a carrying capacity only up to 100 times their body mass, at which point they can barely move.
Life cycle-
The larval stage of the Hercules beetle will last one to two years, with the larva growing up to 4.5 inches (11 cm) in length and weighing more than 100 grams. Much of the life of the larva is spent tunneling through rotting wood. After the larval period, transformation into a pupa, and moulting, the beetle then emerges as an adult.
Diet-
The larval stage of the Hercules beetle will feed on rotting wood during this two year stage.The adult Hercules beetle feeds on fresh and rotting fruit. They have been observed feeding on peaches, pear, apple, and grapes within captivity.

Liquid Metal that is Safe to Touch...and Play with - Gallium



Music: "Flying Dream" by Dhruva Aliman ...Gallium is a chemical element with symbol Ga and atomic number 31. It is in group 13 of the periodic table, and thus has similarities to the other metals of the group, aluminium, indium, and thallium. Gallium does not occur as a free element in nature, but as gallium(III) compounds in trace amounts in zinc ores and in bauxite. Elemental gallium is a soft, silvery blue metal at standard temperature and pressure, a brittle solid at low temperatures, and a liquid at temperatures greater than 29.76 °C (85.57 °F) (slightly above room temperature). The melting point of gallium is used as a temperature reference point. The alloy galinstan (68.5% gallium, 21.5% indium, and 10% tin) has an even lower melting point of −19 °C (−2 °F), well below the freezing point of water. Since its discovery in 1875, gallium has been used to make alloys with low melting points. It is also used in semiconductors as a dopant in semiconductor substrates. Gallium is predominantly used in electronics. Gallium arsenide, the primary chemical compound of gallium in electronics, is used in microwave circuits, high-speed switching circuits, and infrared circuits. Semiconductive gallium nitride and indium gallium nitride produce blue and violet light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode lasers. Gallium is also used in the production of artificial gadolinium gallium garnet for jewelry. Gallium has no known natural role in biology.

Vaginal Weightlifting Empowers Women

Kim Anami is an instructor in a physical activity she calls "vaginal kung fu." As such, she travels around the world promoting the benefits that come when a woman lifts weights with her sex organ. @kimanami - "I would say that having a vaginal weight lifting practice gives me and anyone who practices it the best sex of their lives," Anami told Barcroft TV. There are health benefits beyond good sex, she said, including reduced incontinence, and preventing pelvic organ prolapse after childbirth. “The practice creates an overall lift in the body -- even a face lift," she said. "I have had clients stop using Botox because they took up vaginal weightlifting.” Anami squeezes every single bit of publicity out of "vaginal kung fu" by posting Instagram photos of herself lifting various objects with the help of an egg-shaped piece of jade in her vagina just by contracting her muscles. But while Anami is definitely a proselytizer for the benefits of strong female sex organs, she also admits with great power comes great responsibility.
