Singing Condoms to solve India’s Overpopulation problem

A lighter dose after the last ‘heavy’ post.  Birth control and STD prevention are serious issues. That’s why hilarious ads with few dudes singing and dancing in colorful condom costumes are sometimes the only way to sufficiently get the “Safe Sex” message out to the people. It’s in Telugu, but with proper subtitle!

From YoutTube description : This is an entertaining and educational video in Telugu on Condom usage, to prevent from sexually transmitted infections and HIV, from Nrityanjali Academy, Secunderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India.

 

Enjoy! 😀

Neurons series

Making neurons in a dish to learn

This one caught my eyes while I was looking for some other science video on YouTube. A short video about an experiment at the University of Florida showing rat’s neurons in a culture dish teaching themselves how to fly an airplane. The neurons in a “brain soup” connected to a flight simulator, form networks and learn to fly gradually by trial and error. If you are wondering…No, this is not an experiment to replace human pilots with rats, but to know more about the how brain learns at cellular level.

Neurons basics

100 billion neurons with 50000 connections make you think! A good video to know the basics of how exactly neurons work.

Artficial neurons

Here’s another interesting animation about artificial neurons. One of the possible future applications of Nanotechnology – Nanorobots replacing human nerve cells with artificial nerve cells! Not likely to happen soon, nevertheless a cool concept.
