Information on Mosquitoes and Diseases

Entomologist categories around 3500 species of mosquitoespresent in the world. Some species of mosquitoes act as vectors, carriers and pathogen that cause diseases like, Malaria, Dengue, Chikungunya, Filariasis and Encephalitis.

The male mosquitoes feed on plant and fruit saps. But the female mosquitoes feed on human and animal blood, which has the protein required by them to lay their eggs.
Anopheles stephesi and Anopheles culicifacies causes Malaria. These types of mosquitoes breed in clear water and tanks. They are night biting mosquitoes. They transmit virus from the saliva to humans and animals. Human and animal blood has the ability to clot. To stop clotting and enable them to draw blood, mosquitoes first inject saliva which has enzymes that retard clotting of blood when pierced. Thus the virus gets transmitted through the saliva of mosquitoes.

Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus are the two species that causes Dengue, Chikungunya. They are known as Asian Tiger Mosquitoes, for having white lines on them. They are usually found in forest and breed in artificial containers with stagnant water like pots, cups, mugs, coconut shells and plastic bags. They are day biting mosquitoes and more active in morning and evenings. So coils and nets may not be useful. The name Dengue means break bone fever and cramping pain.

All the above Bond movies were produced by Eon productions, Casino Royale (1967) and Never Say Never Again (1983) starring Sean Connery for the last time as Bond were produced by non Eon productions.


The first Bond movie I watched is Never Say Never Again when I was 10 years old with my father. I was not at all interested about Bond at that time. In 1988 I read a novel Live and Let Die and was very much impressed by the style and narration and wanted to see that movie, but it did not happened soon, the next Bond movie I watched was Octopussy in 1989 followed by For Your Eyes only, The spy who loved me, Diamonds are forever, View to a Kill, The Man with the Golden Gun, Moonraker and finally Live and Let Die.

When Living Daylights was released I was disappointed that Timothy Dalton is not perfect for James Bond. In 1992 I happened to see Remington Steele a television series telecasted by Star TV, played by Pierce Brosnan and I thought why can’t he act as Bond.

After some years Golden Eye was released and found that Pierce Brosnan as my Bond. I loved his style he is very charismatic and perfect fit for Bond after Sean Connery. I feel that the most fitting role for Bond is done by Sean Connery his style is excellent and the dialogue delivery is awesome.

Some important Bond Quotes that I loved:
Shaken not stirred.
My name is Bond, James Bond
So you live to die another day
I travel a lot, sort of licensed trouble shooter.

This month Bond No.23 Sky fall will be released. Hoping it will be better than Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

Today Car manufactures are giving huge discounts and signaling price hike. Discounts are in the form off:
Free insurance
Free accessories
Festival offers
Cash discounts
Discounts on exchange offers
Price increases are due to various factors like:
Increase in fuel prices
Increase in input cost
Increase in freight charges
Though this may sound as marketing tactics, but this has fueled a crisis for new innovations in car products and new technology.

PEUGEOT RCZ: French car manufacturer Peugeot has developed a car, Peugeot RCZ , that changes the car body color as per the mood of the driver. The specialized paint used is called as psycho-chromatic coating or mood paint. The new Peugeot RCZ uses the heat sensors integrated technology that reads the body temperature, pulse rate and heart rate of the driver via the steering wheel. This sensor technology is already used in tread mills. The specialized paint alters the molecular structure of the paint and triggers to emit light at different wave length with respect to the mood of the driver and that changes the color of the car.

FUEL-CELL:  Another new technology that has been developed by Japan Car Manufacturer uses human sewage as fuel. Today when petrol and diesel are getting costlier, this new technology could be a great gift and eco-friendly. The process in fuel-cell model involves by generating methane gas from sludge. Methane gas is then reheated to produce hydrogen gas that powers the vehicle.  
This technology cuts carbon emissions by 75% and environment friendly. Fuel-cell vehicles may one day become a zero emission vehicle on comparison with electrical vehicles that depends on electricity often powered by fossil fuels.
Bottle-neck in this new technology is water, because water is the by-product that comes out of the exhaust pipe. One more hurdle is the development of infrastructure needed for refueling process. Top Car Manufactures are Toyota, Honda, Benz, Nissan are funding and working on this fuel-cell projects.
