Beware: This is why you wake up 2am or 3am in the midnight.

Sleep is the natural state of rest in which your eyes are closed, your body is inactive, and your mind does not think. They were exhausted from lack of sleep. Most people wake up several times during the night. This is often accompanied by the body shifting its position. These nightly awakenings usually coincide with transitions from one sleep stage to another and are so brief, we often don’t remember them in the morning. The reason for this 3am wake up can be traced back to before the Industrial Revolution,

Why are some countries in the Middle East poor?

The problem is very simple. 1. Almost 200 years ago, before the Industrial Revolution, the Middle East was almost at the same level of prosperity as the European countries. 2- Western countries, by chance or any other factor, were able to gain knowledge and technology and put the essence of an industrial country on themselves. 3- Western industry needed underground resources. Especially oil. 4. This wealth was accumulated in the Middle East. 5. The industrialized countries did not want to pay a lot of money

Factors That Contribute To The Causes Of Poverty in Nigeria

The causes of poverty differ widely-nationally, regionally, nationally and globally. There are some commonalities among these causes. However, philosophical views, political theories, and many historical perspectives are typically considered in understanding the causes of poverty.  Some political theorists, for instance, view poverty as the result of economic freedom; this view often holds that an unstable economic environment, in which there are two competing economic systems, leads to poverty.

If our civilization collapsed, do we have sufficient resources to recover?

If our civilization collapsed to pre-Industrial; do we have sufficient resources to recover (repeat the Industrial Revolution) to high tech? Or do we need to get into space on this go? Yes, of course. In fact it would be far easier to do so. How come? Well it turns out obtaining metal from this:Iron mine Is in many ways more complex than rummaging through this: Car scrapyard It’s currently cheaper to mine for new metals and new resources, so we do that. That’s because taking a scrapyard apart is labor intensive

Man that Literally made it Rain still has Scientists Baffled Today

The late 1800s were a weird time. America was just coming out of the Industrial Revolution, and there were a lot of crazy ideas floating around. However, from today’s perspective, people simply didn’t know that much…like about how things work. One particularly odd phenomenon was the emergence of pluviculturists, people who wanted to change the weather (specifically by inducing rain) and believed it was within their capabilities to do just that. One man in particular, James Pollard Espy, came along with

No. Not even close. Anyone saying it is doesn't know history or is just completely blinkered! Respect for Individual Property Rights and democracy was. Freedom for people to profit.

Application Of Steam To Engines

The use of steam power to drive engines was perhaps the most important change which took place during the Industrial Revolution. In 1709, Thomas Newcomen invented a steam engine which was used to pump water from coal mines. Coal was used as fuel to run the engine. Over fifty years later, in 1769, the Scotsman, James Watt, invented a much more successful engine, which showed that steam could provide a cheap and efficient means of power. With later inventions, Watt used steam power to turn a wheel, and he thus

About The American Independence

In 1775 the British colonies in America rebelled against the mother country. On the 4th of July, 1776, in the course of the war, they declared themselves independent of Britain. The American War of Independence began as a result of oppressive laws by which Britain limited the colonists freedom of trade and established a system of taxation in which the colonists in the New World had no say. They were British subjects, but they had no representatives in the parliament in Britain, which made laws and fixed taxes

Astrology: Gardening by the Moon

As early as the ancient Babylonians, our ancestors looked to the sky to discover the best times for planting and harvesting crops. The Moon, a long-time symbol of the life force, growth, and reproduction, was the primary celestial indicator. As we now know, the Moon's gravitational pull affects the tides of the oceans. Composed of a high percentage of water, plants are similarly strongly influenced by the Moon. Only in relatively recent history has planting by the Moon fallen out of favor. With the Industrial
