Processing of Aloe Vera Leaf Gel: A Review



Proper scientific investigations on Aloe vera have gained more attention over the last decade due to its reputable, medicinal, pharmaceutical and food properties. Some publications have appeared in reputable scientific journals that have made appreciable contributions to the discovery of the functions and utilizations of Aloe vera lacking processing of leaf gel. Present processing techniques aims at producing best quality aloe products but end aloe products contain very little or virtually no active ingredients. Hence, appropriate processing techniques should be employed during processing in order to extend the use of aloe vera gel. Further research needs to be done to unravel the myth surrounding the biological activity and the exploitation of aloe constituents.

Lowering Soil pH

Most plants grow best where the soil is slightly acid in the range of pH 5.8 to 7.0. A few plants, however, such as [our favourite green plants and last but not least] azaleas, gardenias, and blueberries grow best at lower pH levels. Others such as centipede turf, camellias, and potatoes grow well in a wide range of pH conditions, but seem to thrive best in more acid soils. Centipede turf is prone to iron chlorosis (iron deficiency) when soil pH is too high (above 6) and soil phosphorus is excessive due to over-fertilization. More…

Whether fertilizer can be applied depends on the desired values of EC, TDS and knowing what you're doing. We suggest use of fertilizer and explicitely suggest against! use of aluminium sulphate. Sulphur can be used but the reaction will delay for 3-5 months, until the sulphur is metabolised by bacteria…

Another couriosity on this planet: Patomskiy Crater (Патомский Кратер). You will find a quite complete collection of materials on englishrussia and wikipedia (russian language variant has some facts which are missing in the english article). So far there are a few theories around and the most probable is that this formation occured 400-500 years ago. Although, origins and circumstances remain unclear. More research is needed.

Das Comeback der sichtbaren Materie



Der Theorie nach gibt es im Kosmos fast sechsmal mehr Dunkle als sichtbare Materie, aus der wir und alle Dinge um uns herum bestehen. Die Dunkle Materie ist prinzipiell nicht zu sehen, beherrscht aber das Weltall mit ihrer Anziehungskraft.

LISA und die Gravitationswellen



Wenn Neutronensterne kollidieren oder Schwarze Löcher entstehen, erzittert der Weltraum ein wenig - so sagt es die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie voraus. Gravitationswellen laufen durch das All und stauchen den Raum minimal.

NASA | NPP Sees Aftermath of the Chelyabinsk Meteor - YouTube

"A meteor weighing 10,000 metric tons exploded only 23km above the city of Chelyabinsk in Russia on February 15, 2013. Unlike previous such events, this time scientists had the highly sensitive OMPS instrument on NPP to deliver unprecedented data and help them track and study the meteor plume for months. This video shows how accurately the model prediction coincided with the satellite observations. "
