Next TARGET 9/11: Kill the Mosquitoes in Your life : Part IV: More about Mosquitoes

The mosquitoes are a family of small, midge-like flies: the Culicidae. Although a few species are harmless or even useful to humanity, most are considered a nuisance because they consume blood from living vertebrates, including humans. The females of many species of mosquitoes are blood-eating pests. In feeding on blood, some of them transmit extremely harmful human and livestock diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever and filariasis

In the bloodsucking species, only the females suck blood. Over 3,500 species of mosquitoes have already been described from various parts of the world. Some mosquitoes that bite humans routinely act as vectors for a number of infectious diseases affecting millions of people per year

The first three stages—egg, larva, and pupa—are largely aquatic. These stages typically last five to 14 days, , but there are important exceptions. Mosquitoes Females of many common species can lay 100–200 eggs during the course of the adult phase of their lifecycles. Even with high egg and intergenerational mortality, over a period of several weeks, a single successful breeding pair can create a population of thousands.

Males typically live for about a week, feeding on nectar and other sources of sugar. A mosquito has a variety of ways of finding their prey, including chemical, visual, and heat sensors.

In many species, the female needs to obtain nutrients from a blood meal before she can produce eggs, whereas in many other species, she can produce more eggs after a blood meal. The feeding preferences of Mosquitos include those with type O blood, heavy breathers, those with a lot of skin bacteria, people with a lot of body heat, and the pregnant.

Both plant materials and blood are useful sources of energy in the form of sugars, and blood also supplies more concentrated nutrients, such as lipids, but the most important function of blood meals is to obtain proteins as materials for egg production.

A large part of the mosquito’s sense of smell, or olfactory system, is devoted to sniffing out blood sources. Of 72 types of odor receptors on its antennae, at least 27 are tuned to detect chemicals found in perspiration.

In Aedes, the search for a host takes place in two phases. First, the mosquito exhibits a nonspecific searching behavior until the perception of host stimulants, then it follows a targeted approach. Most mosquito species are crepuscular (dawn or dusk) feeders. During the heat of the day, most mosquitoes rest in a cool place and wait for the evenings, although they may still bite if disturbed. Some species, such as the Asian tiger mosquito, are known to fly and feed during daytime.

Prior to and during blood feeding, blood – sucking mosquitoes inject saliva into the bodies of their source(s) of blood. This saliva serves as an anticoagulant; without it one might expect the female mosquito’s proboscis to become clogged with blood clots. The saliva also is the main route by which mosquito physiology offers passenger pathogens access to the hosts’ interior. Not surprisingly the salivary glands are a major target to most pathogens, whence they find their way into the host via the stream of saliva.

To avoid this problem, mosquitoes have a digestive system which can store both food types, and give access to both as they are needed. When the mosquito drinks a sugar solution, it is directed to a crop. The crop can release sugar into the stomach as it is required. At the same time, the stomach never becomes full of sugar solution, which would prevent the mosquito taking a blood meal if it had the chance

Next TARGET 9/11: Kill the Mosquitoes in Your life: Part III: Facts about Mosquitoes

The world of internet is vital  resource of knowledge. Lots of good research is going on in various leading institute and labs about malaria  .Good part is we as a people of world together are taming and smashing down the malaria cases.

Recently Bayer Crop-Science has recently submitted a dossier to the World Health Organization Pesticide Evaluation Scheme (WHOPES) for the evaluation of a new two-way insecticide mixture which includes a new mode-of-action for indoor residual spraying (IRS) against disease vectors. Named Fludora Fusion, this first IRS based on two active ingredients is intended to provide an effective solution to help African disease control programs address the challenge of insecticide resistance in malaria-transmitting mosquitoes.

People visit Switzerland for sightseeing and honeymoon trips .i was surprise to find that World Health OrganizationGlobal Malaria Program head office is in this country.

  • Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour.
  • The Anopheles is malaria carrier mosquitoes
  • A full moon increased mosquito activity 500% in one study
  • According to the University of California-Davis Mosquito Research Program, mosquitoes have been around for at least 210 million years.
  • According to a study published in New York times in July 1987 , mosquitoes can carry aids virus but not pass it on,
  • A mosquito wing beats from 300 to 600 times per second.
  • The average mosquito takes in about 5-millionths of a liter of blood during feeding.
  • Mosquitoes are cold-blooded and prefer temperatures over 80 degrees. At temperatures less than 50 degrees, they shut down and hibernate
  • Mosquitoes find hosts by sight (they observe movement); by detecting infra-red radiation emitted by warm bodies; and by chemical signals (mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide and lactic acid, among other chemicals) at distances of 25 to 35 meters.
  • Bigger people are often more attractive to mosquitoes because they are larger targets and they produce more carbon dioxide and lactic acid.
  • An adult female mosquito consumes about 5-millionths of a liter in a single blood meal

Next TARGET 9/11: Kill the Mosquitoes in Your life: Part II : WHO Facts about the Malaria

Today is 9/11 . 11 September 2011 was a black day of the history of mankind. People have always reason for whatever they do .When you ask a priest he will give his own justification for all the religious rituals. When you are any extremists they have their own reasons for that. I am not here to decide what is bad and what is good .But I just want to create a awareness about the deadliest beast not for the mankind also for the animal kingdom. According to World health organization half of the world is in its clutches. Is does not follow any religion, it does not afraid of any army, it can’t be hanged to death. I am talking about Mosquitoes.

In this series, I will provide some insight of the actual and philosophical mosquitoes in your life.

WHO Facts about the malaria

  • World Malaria Day was celebrated on 25 April 2013 by WHO
  • About 3.3 billion people – half of the world’s population – are at risk of malaria
  • According to the estimates, released in December 2013, there were about 207 million cases of malaria in 2012 (with an uncertainty range of 135 million to 287 million) and an estimated 627 000 deaths (with an uncertainty range of 473 to 789 million).
  • In areas with high transmission of malaria, children under 5 are particularly susceptible to infection, illness and death. More than two thirds (70%) of all malaria deaths occur in this age group. In 2015, about 305 000 African children died before their fifth birthdays.
  • Increased malaria prevention and control measures are dramatically reducing the malaria burden in many places. Since 2000, malaria mortality rates have fallen globally by 60% among all age groups, and by 65% among children under 5
  • Early diagnosis and treatment of malaria reduces disease and prevents deaths. It also contributes to reducing malaria transmission. Access to diagnostic testing and treatment should be seen not only as a component of malaria control but as a fundamental right of all populations at risk
  • Parasite resistance to artemisinin, the core compound in WHO-recommended combination treatments for uncomplicated malaria, has been detected in 5 countries of south east Asia: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam. However, artemisinin-based combination therapies remain effective in almost all settings, as long as the partner drug in the combination is locally effective
  • Long-lasting insecticidal nets provide personal protection against mosquito bites. They can be used as protection for people most at risk of malaria, such as young children and pregnant women in high malaria transmission areas. The nets are effective for 2-3 years, depending on the model and conditions of use. Between 2000 and 2015, the proportion of children sleeping under an insecticide-treated net in sub-Saharan Africa increased from less than 2% to approximately 68%
  • The full potential of indoor residual spraying is obtained when at least 80% of houses in targeted areas are sprayed. Indoor spraying with insecticides kills the mosquito vector and is effective for 3–6 months, depending on the insecticide used and the type of surface on which it is sprayed. Longer-lasting forms of insecticides are under development
  • Pregnant women are at high risk of dying from the complications of severe malaria. Malaria is also a cause of spontaneous abortion, premature delivery, stillbirth and severe maternal anemia, and is responsible for about one third of preventable low-birth-weight babies. For pregnant women living in moderate-to-high transmission areas, WHO recommends intermittent preventive treatment at each scheduled antenatal visit after the first trimester.
  • In high-burden settings, malaria can trap families and communities in a downward spiral of poverty, disproportionately affecting marginalized and poor people who cannot afford treatment or who have limited access to health care
  • WHO recommends that oral artemisinin based mono therapies be withdrawn from the market and that marketing of these therapies should cease. Out of 24 pharmaceutical companies, half located in India, continued to market oral artemisinin mono therapies.
  • About 80% of estimated malaria cases in 2013 occurred in just18 countries and 80% of deaths in 16 countries. Three countries (India, Indonesia and Pakistan) accounted for more than 80% of estimated cases
  • Two countries (India and Thailand) are on track to achieve a decrease of 50–75% in case incidence by 2015.

Thy Governors :Part 7:Your Family Governors ..

Happiness does not come from comparison of our lives with others. We have our own life to live at its best, not—the lives of others. Our parents and family members  foster us their acquired believes and faith .They feel this right is fundamental right and duty to given advice ,Irony is they don’t want to take any suggestion or  advice . Though they are  one’s best connection that one can ever have in her or his life .

I will share some of the hard and harsh words of a young and so called new generation boy talking to his parents  ,”i haven’t given an application to you to be my  parents to bring me in this world.” .He didn’t stopped at this he continue to talk like this ,”You had entertain yourself  and i born out of it accidentally .” . All though theses are plain facts but putting in  words like this not appreciated ,We are the impure of the pure. I called this because we are the generation of the Adam and Eve .We all are originated from the one the supreme cosmic energy . They were the purest form of the god.

We live in this for the sake of HUM DO HAMARE DO (a famous family planning slogan in eighties by government of india that we are two and we will produce two ).Our whole life is spinning around the axis of the children parents and our friend and acquaintances. When we born to this earth from the ultimate cosmic energy of the universe. We were alone and when we depart from this world we remain single

one’s family life has greatly governed one’s own values , commitment , ego ,mutual faith ,understanding compromising nature. When we give an opportunity to third person in our life either get shaped or get  shattered .It is not bad to take the advice or getting influence from others .but before implementing  the advice in your life you must evaluate the  person who is giving it . What is the intent of it .what can be the results of it .

Does it suits  to you or  align with you goals in you life ..In Order to keep our relation healthy like in married life one should not allow even the air to pass between you and your spouse .it create the channel of misunderstanding and miscommunications

External governors are the society , maternal or paternal side relatives, friends colleagues your own children brothers or sisters .No doubt the are your well wishers but the life you have to spent in our own full prepared way .

Don’t produced the children. if you are not mentally prepared for them  .There are already enough of population. Don’t bring the angels in to earth just for the sake of fun ,family or for the society.

Listen to every advice read all books watch all movies but before putting it to the practice in your marital life if the same thing is done by your partner how will you feel wear your partner shoes first .

Life is just a bubble you cannot  the timing when it will break and you will extinct from this planet .So take  the time to make your own decisions and respect the opinions and advices of others . We had been two eras to listen and one mouth to speak and one brain to  evaluate the things .

the mother father sister brother wife husband daughter son and all other relative has place in you life and you should listen to them but choose the action which is relevant to your life ,Because one does not have the eight  lives like cat have .So live your only life with your choices .

Thy Governors :Part 6:Governors in Education

Education is the foundation of one’s personality it maybe inform or informal , I can be in school or off school ,Social or spiritual. It gave you understanding of the world and its customs apart from special skill and craft

Jaden Smith, just 15year old son of Hollywood superstar Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, made headlines recently by tweeting his opinions about education as

“School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth,” and “If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth.” And “If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society.”

In my opinion this is true to great extent .Children are most uncorrupted original creation of the almighty. Their response is quick natural and unbiased .I remember once my three old daughter was telling me a story at the bed time and the story goes like this .”There was a mice his name is rabbit his mother is a cow and cow eat the plants and so on…. I hadn’t stopped her and curiously asking questions and she was answering all the question with full confidence and zeal .She had used all of the acquired words and keep telling me the story for the fifteen minutes. if during listening her story and remind her with my  foster thoughts, Like How mice can named a  rabbit ? If I agree to that, then how  mice can have Cow as mother and if I put so many more stop points  in her ,story she would had stopped the story and loose interest and her enjoyment. and she stop telling me the story .

Child brain is a open field in we saw the seed of imagination creativity social and spiritual values ,rights ,wrongs ,responsibilities through education .Education does not mean only bookish or textural reading. Child observe a lot he learn more from silent learning .

Unfortunately our education system became too stereotype and obsolete .That is failed to produced the right product of responsible human being. The reason of this is the presence of the governors in our education system. Governors main motive is to earn the maximum profits .Government has opened schools .But the schools are without teachers or without rooms . Private institutions or schools hired the low paid teachers. There is an old proverb that if you throw peanuts you will get only the monkeys. The standard of the education is falling. How can we say that world is shining.

Our parents choose our careers .Our uncle or aunt help us to choose the colleges .We choose the profession as per the rat race or immitation. Coaching institutions cropup and doing the business in millions. Professional academies are coaching for the jobs .They are professional in earning .Most of the couches and tutors havsit in the entrances examination and feel the atmosphere of the examination hall .They are busy in making their bucks. They are not wrong they are the pure businessman they are the seller of the commodity which we called “education “.  The amount and time we spent in the institution if we spent on us and steadily study at home .There remain no door which won’t   open  for you .Today is the era of digital education .The modern day gods in form of search engine right in front of you at internet and with you .What ever the query you pose ou will get the answer of that. You can get all the study material on the internet free . You just need to tune your strings of violin. But sadly we don’t believe in less costly things we believes on the things that cost more .We believe in the governor more then we believe in ourselves. We don’t have faith in our children but have faith on the institutions.

Thy Governors :Part 5: Yours truly Religious Governors

This is one of the topic that I felt more strong and weak as well .when I to have talk of ,because it is the life line of the faith of all the civilizations  from ages .and whosoever want to challenge the rules, face the critics and humiliation even the God get suffer to say the truth .

You are free to choose to be or not to agree to my point , I need your humble opinion if you find this derogatory or hurting the sentiments .

There are religious sculptured figures from sheer hypocrisy, consciously trading on their spiritual shop or channel  rating—these may deceive the world without blindfolding their own eyes for a moment. They govern us .History of mankind has witness several riot sand wars due to religion . I can’t blame the religion or faith .it happen due the its wrong followers and the wrong interpretation of the religious leaders .i am not blaming any single religion or faith because I haven’t saw a single religion or read about who told one to kill humanity. It is the interpreters at that time of history who led the masse and govern them to run their business to fulfill their short term goals.

Some people use religion for war, violence, and terrorism to promote their selfish motives ,They make the masses to believe that these are religious goals, Religious leaders contribute to secular wars and terrorism by endorsing or supporting the violence, and Religious fervor is exploited by secular leaders to support war and terrorism. Religion, to be really worthwhile, should, by their living, fill men’s hearts with love, truth, right, justice, sweetness, honesty, faith, charity, trust and peace.

Great Nobel prize winner Amartya Sen adds that political leaders frequently use religious differences to initiate or perpetuate violence.

If I had been born in Pakistan instead of the india, I have little doubt that I would be a Muslim today. But to the core of the base I remain human .Physically i will remained the same the two eyes two ears two legs two hands nut my mind learn the lesson that were taught to me in the land where I born. And if I grew up in a predominantly Catholic, Christian , Jewish or Buddhist culture, I have little doubt that I would’ve emerged as one of those. As a Hindu, I found this fact a little unsettling. My geography seemed to have more to do with my religion than any kind of free will choice. The obvious problem with this is that if only one religion leads to heaven, then the odds of us finding that religion are greatly diminished when God places us into a “deceived” culture. God is effectively blocking us from salvation, He is saying, “I don’t want you in heaven, so I’m placing you over here.”

IN my opinion, faith is a choice for the individual — all parents can really do is educate their children as best they can, and really teach them to be open minded and tolerant of other religions. When the child’s ready to make a decision, they will. The hard part will be for mom and dad to accept it if its something they do not like/agree with .Religion is a very personal choice. therefore neither you nor your parent should try and push a religion onto your child. however, educating them about not only yours and his but multiple religions would probably be most beneficial. Educating and teaching them to make choices as an individual is a part of parenting even if their choices are not in your favor. Accepting their choices is part of your challenge especially when you want whats best for them.(what you think is best may not be) a religion should be chosen when a person is mature enough to comprehend its meaning.

Probably the biggest influence that religion has on everyday life is that the laws and the social customs that exist in society are almost all based on religious teachings. While it could be argued that similar laws would be made by a society that had no god the fact remains that the laws as they exist are mostly an extension of religion. These laws form the basis of society as we know it so religion has had a massive impact on the world as we know it. Since these laws govern almost all of your daily behavior you are being influenced by religion in almost everything that you do.

 

Thy Governors :Part 4: Know your Political Governors

What is an election ? According to me over threw one set of rulers and substituted another with different interest and different views. But are we doing this ? Public opinion is expressed in terms of vote , a demonstration of blame or praise ,it is choice of following or boycotting . But these manifestations are in themselves are noting .They count only if they influence the course of affairs .They influence it, however, only if the influence the actor in the affair.

Voting is an act of any individual to stand for or against and the appeal of polical agendas to mobilization a set of masses people to support or oppose the individual who contested the elections ,and actually governs them afterwards .Ideally It is the function of the citizen of a country to control and to check the use of force in a crisis ,so that men ,driven to make terms ,may live and let live But in real life we are governed ,our values molded by others , our believes or faiths are influenced by unseen powerful personalities   our taste are made ,our choices are suggested by the unseen invisible powerful governors or governess we have never heard or viewed or met .

Indian constitution does not tell or direct how to choose candidate for the member of legislative assembly or Member of Parliament . But as a true Indian we stick to the philosophy of selfless contribution and charity in giving called and do the “MAT–DAN” [MATDAN is process of casting the votes] .We caste our votes aimlessly in old mechanical fashion way . Political parties are our limited choices, our choices are narrowed ,our brains are put in nutshell and we let them allow to do so .

In our Indian culture it was said “DAN KARNE KE BAD USPE DAN DENE WALE KA ADHIKAR NAHI REHTA”. [After giving donation it no longer is property of the giver]. It is very true . The politician use this for their own sake .We make hue and cry optician has no doing anything for us .They do not bring grants to develop the community .When you can not take care of you MAT (vote) and that too you have given in DAAN. How you can accept the they will given you something back to you .You must use your wits to choose the representative that going to represents in the parliament on in legislature assembly. World has witness the world wars mass destruction political unrest has been created by handful of individuals. Nations are partitioned .Country Different sates are formed for the sack of short term vision and mission .They are the culprit of the mankind .They enjoy their life and fulfill their selfish motive they are the governors of the masses .
