Green coffee bean helps lose weight

Looking for weight loss without exercising?

Well, green coffee bean is one of the best options as it helps you burn more fat without any side effects, Green coffee bean is not a stimulant so it doesn't make you jittery and nervous and raise your heart rate like roasted coffee or ephedra. 

In fact, the green coffee bean has actually shown in some studies to help lower blood pressure – while still boosting metabolism.

 They key ingredient in the green coffee bean is a very important natural active compound called chlorogenic acid, which works by inhibiting the release of glucose in the body, while at the same time boosting the metabolism or the “burning” of fat in the liver.
 Because the green coffee bean is so bitter, researchers recommend taking it in capsule form. The most recent study on green coffee bean was published in the Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity journal.
Spiral galaxy Messier 61 about same size as Milky Way

The Nasa/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has captured an image of nearby spiral galaxy Messier 61, also known as NGC 4303. 

The galaxy, located only 55 million light-years away from earth, is roughly the size of the Milky Way, with a diameter of around 100 000 light-years.

 The galaxy is notable for one particular reason — six supernovae have been observed within Messier 61, a total that places it in the top handful of galaxies alongside Messier 83, also with six, and NGC 6946, with a grand total of nine observed supernovae. 

In the Hubble image the galaxy is seen face-on as if posing for a photograph, allowing us to study its structure closely. 

The spiral arms can be seen in stunning detail, swirling inwards to the very center of the galaxy, where they form a smaller, intensely bright spiral.

 In the outer regions, these vast arms are sprinkled with bright blue regions where new stars are being formed from hot, dense clouds of gas. 

Messier 61 is part of the Virgo Galaxy Cluster, a massive group of galaxies in the constellation of Virgo (the Virgin). 

Extinct rhino source of unicorn legend

Although modern Indian and Javan rhinos have a single horn on their noses, the extinct one-horned rhino Elasmotherium was a source of the unicorn legend because it had a two meter-long horn on its forehead and lived with prehistoric humans that drew its image on cave paintings. 

All other elasmotheres had a weak or strong nasal horn, whereas Elasmotherium lost its ancestral nasal horn and instead developed a long frontal horn. 

Dr. DENG Tao (Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences) and his colleagues reported the first discovered skull of Sinotherium lagrelii from Late Miocene red clays (~7 Ma) of the Linxia Basin, northwestern China. 

The transition from a nasal horn to a frontal horn in elasmotheres has been difficult to explain because a major transformational gap exists between nasal-horned ancestors and frontal-horned descendants.

The skull has connected a large posterior nasofrontal horn boss and a smaller frontal horn boss, indicating an intermediate stage to the single frontal horn of Elasmotherium.Morphological and phylogenetic analyses confirm that Sinotherium is a transitional taxon between Elasmotherium and other elasmotheres. 

It is positioned near the root of the giant unicorn clade and originated in a subarid steppe.
