Think – Today: What Was The First Element To Be Scientifically Discovered?

by Anura Guruge

periodictablemutedYes, folks have known about gold, silver, tin, copper, lead, mercury and arsenic for a long time. But there had been no science behind their discovery. The first scientific discovery of an element took place in the 17th century. What was that element? You will be surprised and even more as to ‘from what‘ it was discovered.


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’How do trees gain height? Trees, contrary to what you might first believe, do NOT grow from the bottom up. In other words the vertical growth (i.e., height) doesn’t occur from the ground level. That is why a bird box attached to a tree at eye level, or a carving made on a tree trunk, does not continue to move upwards, year after year. The vertical growth of trees occur from the BUDS outwards. So the growth takes place at the top. Here is a REALLY cool time lapse animation.

Think – Today: Do Trees Grow From The Bottom Or From The Top?

by Anura Guruge

Easy question, right? Just talking about height. Where does the height of a tree come from, the bottom or the top. Yes, the root system continues to expand and the trunk gets bigger, each year — which is why we get those ‘rings’ that can tell the age of a tree. But, what about getting taller?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’Name of the ‘Amazon’ river. The second Spanish explorer who set out to navigate the river, c. 1550, was viciously attacked by native warriors — most of whom were women. So he named the river ‘Amazon’ after Greek mythological race of women warriors. Neat?
