Weight Loss is an intentional or unintentional reduction of the body mass, mostly due to a loss of body fat, fluid, muscle. Intentional weight loss requires a conscious effort to improve an actual or perceived overweight body by dieting and/or undertaking physical activity.

Dieting without proper nutrition and detoxing may result in rebound to the original weight. Proper dieting and nutrition, lifestyle changes and physical activity all help weight loss to be sustainable. Weight loss diagram below shows this effect.

Nerve Cell

Featured

Nerve Cell Diagram below is a typical illustration of this type of a human cell that makes up the cells in the nervous system. Nerve cell parts include nucleus, soma, dendrite, axon, myelin sheath, axon terminal, node of ranvier. This composition of the cell ensures that the neuron is functional with chemical signals transmitted to neighboring neurons.

All nerve cells respond to the external stimulus with an electric discharge that produces an electrical pulse of about 50-70 millivolts. This pulse is often referred to us an action potential. The electrical pulse travels down axon, which is the the fiber-like extension of the nerve cell. The speed of the impulse is about few tens of a meters per second and is a function of the fiber size. The transmission can be sent to a nearby nerve cell via a chemical neurotransmitter as soon as it gets to the axon terminal bundle. These types of nerve cells can be found all over the human body.

Plant Cell Diagram

Featured

Plant Cell is a basic block of the plant structure. The plant cell diagram below displays various parts of the cell including nucleus, cytoskeleton, cell wall, membrane, centrosome, central vacuole, chloroplast and others. Lets explain what each component is responsible for:

The nucleus is the commanding center of the cell controlling various functions of the cell and containing DNA. The nucleus is covered by the nuclear membrane. This is different from the cell membrane, which is a protein layer on the inside of the cell wall. The cell wall is a thick membrane that allows for passing of the nutrients and forms the structure of the plant together with other cells. The jelly material outside of the nucleus is called cytoplasm.

The key difference between plant cells and animals cells is the process of photosynthesis. Plant cells are able to convert sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into sugars (energy), oxygen and water. Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts, which contains chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a molecule responsible for this process and is usually green in color. The central vacuole stores sugars and water for cell’s use.

Plant cell diagram below lists various cell parts and explains some of their functionality.

Fracking Diagram

Fracking Diagram. What Is Fracking? Learn how fracking utilizes water to extract oil and natural gas from shale formations, why fracking is an economic and energy security solution. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a well stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid, usually a water mixture. Fracking is the process of drilling down into the earth before a high-pressure water mixture is directed at the deposit.

Fracturing fluid is a mix of water sand and chemicals is pumped into the well. The pressures causes the rock surrounding the pipe to crack. The proppants hold open these cracks to allow the trapped gas to escape. Gas / oil flows up the well to be extracted. Some potential risks include groundwater contamination and air quality degradation but with deposits usually located at great depths, these are usually do not present a big problem.

Bike Frame Size and Seat Height Chart

Featured

Bike frame size and seat height chart below shows the dimensions of the frame size and seat height based on the inseam height. To choose the right bicycle and adjust the height of the saddle, first measure inseam height and then multiply the value by 1.08, which will give you the seat height (see the table below). This measurement can be used for both mountain and road bikes.

Getting the right bike size is important to maximize your speed, comfort and ability to handle, i.e. all the the things needed to ensure you get the best possible biking experience. It is important to use your personal measurement such as your height to choose the right bike frame and seat height. The bicycles are measured by the length of the seat tube, i.e. the tube where the saddle slides in to. Road bicycles are usually measured in cm while mountain bikes in inches. The diagram below will assist you with choosing the right bicycle regardless of the measurement system you are more accustomed to.

Heart Diagram – Human Heart

Featured

Human heart is a key organ in the circulatory system responsible for pumping blood through blood vessels. The heart is found slightly to the left of the center of the chest. As shown in the below diagram, it consists of four chambers: left atrium, right atrium, left ventricle and right ventricle. Multiple valves found in the heart ensure that blood flows only one way through the heart. The lining of the heart consists of three layers: endocardium, myocardium and epicardium.

The blood low in oxygen flows into the right atrium from the superior and inferior vena cavae and further flows into the right ventricle. From here it is pumped into lungs where it releases carbon dioxide and absorbs oxygen. Blood high in oxygen content flows back to the left atrium and then passes through the left ventricle. It is then pumped out via the aorta. Aorta and other arteries transport blood away from the heart. The blood also carries nutrients and waste between the digestive system and various body organs.

The heart is essentially a muscle that contracts at a resting rate of ~72 beats per minute. The lower the heart rate when resting, the better for the health and individual’s longevity. The heart rate may increase during exercising. However, regular exercises ensure that the rate slows down in the longer term.

The heart diagram below lists key parts of the heart.

Baby Month by Month – Pregnancy Stages

Featured

The Pregnancy stages diagrams below shows the development of the baby month by month in woman’s uterus. Month 1 marks the beginning of the first trimester when the ovulation and conception take place. During week 4, some pregnancy tests may detect conception. At this point, the embryo has just two cells. During the second month of pregnancy, women often feel fatique, morning sickness, hormonal fluctuations and other pregnancy-related symptoms The baby’s heart is beating and the brain is forming. During month 3, the embryo becomes a fetus and is about the size of a plum.

During the second trimester, starting month 4, the baby’s bones are hardening and the fetus is about 5 inches long and starts to resemble a human being as seen in the below diagram. Month 5, baby starts to kick and is developing hearing.

During the third trimester, the baby is fully forming with brain processing sights and sounds. The fetus is about 13 inches long. By month 8, the baby is fully formed and is increasing in weight. Baby’s lungs are almost fully developed. By month 9, the baby is ready to come out and meet the world! The month-by-month baby diagram shows the development of a baby and growth of mother’s belly.

Eye Colors

Featured

Eye Colors: the colors of a human eye are dependent on the two main characteristics. The first characteristic that determines eye color is the pigmentation of the eye’s iris, the second is the frequency of light scattering in the stroma of the iris. Iris varies from light brown to black, the blue and green pigments are not found in the human iris, rather these colours are a product of lighting conditions.

The eye colors are based on genetics: blue, grey, amber, hazel, brown, green, black. Blue, grey and green eyes are rare; most of world’s population has brown eyes. The eye color chart below depicts various types of eyes. Many now use contact lenses of different colours to alter their appearance.

Cell Diagram

Featured

Cell diagram: Human cell as most other animal cells make up the structure of the body. Cell diagram below is representative of a typical human cell responsible for carrying out various bodily functions and processing nutrients into energy used to sustain itself. The diagram shows the following elements: nucleus, membrane, ribosomes, lysosome, cytoplasm and others.  Now lets explain what each of the cell parts is responsible for.

Cytoplasm is a part of the cell filled with cytosol liquid surrounding the nucleus. The nucleus is the center of the cell and acts as its control unit responsible for cell growth, division and maturity. Nuclear envelope is the membrane that surrounds the nucleus protecting the DNA from the rest of the cell.

The outside of the cell is protected by the plasma membrane. This membrane allows for passing of the nutrients and waste. An organ that ensures energy from nutrients can be consumed by the cell is called Mitochondria. The Golgi apparatus ensures molecules processed by the endoplasmic reticulum can be passed through the cell.
Peroxisomes and Lysosomes are responsible fore recycling of the worn-out cell parts while also breaking down bacteria and toxins. The cell diagram below lists various cell parts.
