The first of April on a daily web site of the journal Science (ScienceNow) it was reported that a group of geneticists from the U.S. Institute Leychen in New Jersey have found a gene responsible for a sense of humor in humans. The gene was named Haha-1. By Scientists say they have found a gene in mice, albeit in the off position. When the researchers 'included' Haha-1 in the three experimental mice, one of them started to publish a thin squeak when she showed a picture with the cat, which crushed the anvil, – she seemed to have laughed at his eternal enemy, got into a nasty mess. Scientists hope that their future discovery will lead to a cure that will help instill sense of humor to people who have it from birth do not. This message was clearly an April Fool's joke. Does not exist in the world (more precisely, the Internet) Institute named Leychen, unknown Horace Epstein, who heads a group of geneticists from the Institute, has been found as the magazine Genes and Behavior, which supposedly should appear in an article on the discovery of the gene responsible for a sense of humor, to the same article in ScienceNow signed by a man named Grim (Grim), and humorously flippant tone of the note did not have to much confidence … But there is a professor Dzhaak Panksepp, an expert on animal behavior, there is a Bowling Green State University, Ohio, where he works, There, finally, the journal Science, where he was the first of April of the same published his article on the nature of laughter.

One particularly popular among autumnal plants, without doubt, the gladioli. For very many of us just gladioli for at least a few years of life may be associated with the first of September, because often brought students to their teachers immediately given bouquets of flowers from their summer gardens. And by the way before gladioli – of course, wild and not cultivated types – were regarded as almost a medicine from all Without exception diseases. Especially healing were called to the tubers. As the winter months, our ancestors harvested quite a substantial amount of herbal "medicines", then the corms "gladiolus" (in Translated from Latin, gladiolus means sword) were added, including a number of them. According to doctors, gladioli were treated for heat, swelling and many other ailments.
Prepared for such a special thick ointment. In addition, gladiolus, as well as wild garlic, is actively involved to protect the house from evil eyes, evil demons, and in fact, entirely negative action from the outside. Just for a gladiolus bulbs worn as a talisman around his neck fighters. And with so that evil spirits could not get into the housing, near the ceiling above the entrance and windows were hung on a mandatory basis or the whole head of wild garlic, onions, or non-cultivated gladiolus. Then he moved from the wild gladiolus burs on the plot, and they began to grow rapidly, which led to the creation of a wide variety of species. And yet, cultural gladioli really healthful than their wild relatives.
Perhaps for this reason that wild grasses – and gladiolus are no exception – are obliged to fight for existence, that intensifies its own forces the plant itself. In turn, it can transmit these forces and each of us, acting as a medicament. And what is with regards to the cultivated gladiolus, they are less resistant. At least this aspect of their tubers are needed each year for winter digging in fact can be said about very much. A storage gladioli – in principle greater complexity. For example, in order for the next year gladiolus growers pleased with beautiful buds, it will require at least once in five years – and the correct time in a year – to turn over to the new location. In addition, carefully look for so that in the medium tubers, which are put for the winter, was not rotted. Bulbs also need as much as possible to feed both before planting and during the summer – before blossoming. And the food Gladiolus can be carefully planned. Say, kids need to be processed before planting hinoin-fundazolom and fungicide, and during the summer time – fungicides and insecticides. Only in this version there is a chance to avoid ailments, infections of soil fungi, which are very fond of settling on gladiolus corm. Accordingly, the more closely the host site will be suitable for his care, the more magnificent will bloom in late summer and early autumn the golden ears of gladiolus.
