Music can change the taste of vegetables

children, and some adults too, dislike the taste of certain vegetables. The flavors of foods such as cabbage and broccoli are generally the ones people mention as their least favourite vegetables, as these vegetables are believed to have an extremely bitter taste. However, according to an Oxford psychologist, children might change their about these foods if they can hear simple music while they're eating - such as the sounds come from one musical instrument, called a wind chime. This instrument often hangs in people's gardens, and plays sweet notes when the wind blows through it. These notes may make the food seem to taste sweeter than it would do normally. However, many adults that their tastes developed as they grew up, so they now enjoy a far greater range of food. , they're much more likely to eat the kind of vegetables they always hated during their childhood.

Pain killers

In most countries of the world, there is one medicine that nearly everyone takes. It is called aspirin. People take aspirin when they have an ache or a pain, and sometimes when they have a fever. Doctors believe it can also help people who have heart disease and some other diseases, too. Some people, however, cannot take aspirin because it hurts their stomachs. Aspirin must never be given to children under 12 years old.

Before aspirin was invented some people made a drink with the bark of the white willow tree. This drink made their pain and fever go away. People had been drinking white willow bark for thousands of years, but no one knew why it helped.

Then, in the 1830s, scientists in England studied all the things that were in the bark of the white willow. They found out what thing in the plant stopped the pain. They called this pain stopping thing "salicin". Soon people were making medicine with the salicin and selling it.

Later scientists found out how to make salicin without using any plants at all. They called this new thing "acetylsalicylic acid", and this is what aspirin is made from. Aspirin was first sold in 1899 by the Bayer company of Germany.

The Ring of Fire

The Ring of Fire is an enormous chain of volcanoes all around the Pacific Ocean. The ring goes from New Zealand up to Asia and across the ocean to Alaska. From Alaska, the ring continues southward along the coast of both North and South America. More than seventy-five percent of the world’s volcanoes are located in this ring.

Scientists are interested in studying the Ring of Fire because they can observe plate tectonics at work there. In 1912, a German scientist, Alfred Wegener, came up with the first theory of land movement. Wegener said continents are made up of lighter rocks resting on heavier material. Similar to the way large things move while floating on water, Wegener suggested that the positions of the continents were not fixed, but that they moved slightly. Later, scientists discovered most of Wegener’s ideas were right on the mark. They then developed the theory called plate tectonics.

According to plate tectonics, the surface of the Earth consists of a number of enormous plates or sections of rock, each about eighty kilometers thick. The plates float and slowly move at speeds between one to ten centimeters every year. That is about the rate your fingernails grow! Within the Ring of Fire, new material for the Earth’s plates is constantly being created as hot liquid rock called magma flows from the center of the Earth up to the ocean floor. All the existing plates on the Earth’s surface have to move slightly to make room for the new material.

As plates move both away from and toward each other, they run into each other. When they hit each other, one plate might move under another. This process is called subduction. Subduction frequently causes earthquakes. It may also result in the bottom plate melting due to the extreme temperatures under the top plate. The magma created in this process can rise to the Earth’s surface and come out through volcanoes, as can be seen along the Ring of Fire.
