AIDS: Rock Hudson becomes the first celebrity victim of AIDS, the search begins for "patient zero" - 4min.

AIDS becomes front page news in 1985 when Rock Hudson announces his homosexuality, and also that he is carrying the disease. The disease starts to spread within the homosexual community, and researchers struggle to contain the disease. They begin to look for "Patient Zero," or the first carrier of the disease within the US. Soon this search leads to a Canadian flight attendant. Rock Hudson died less than 3 months after he announced he was suffering from the disease, on October 2, 1985. AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, sometimes written Aids) is a human disease characterized by progressive destruction of the bodys immune system. AIDS is caused by Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. To date, there are no cures for either HIV infection nor AIDS, which are chronic medical conditions, but which are treatable by a variety of antiretroviral drugs. This treatment delays the progression of HIV infection to AIDS, and reduces the rates of morbidity and mortality attributable to the disease. Rock Hudson (November 17, 1925 - October 2, 1985) was an American actor, famous for his rugged good looks. The first major American celebrity to admit that he had AIDS, his announcement of and subsequent death from the disease at the age of fifty-nine brought it to wider public attention in the United States .

Champagne: the secret of making sparkling drink

The 31st of December. The last, the 365th day of the year. We anticipate the arrival of the New Year with fun, fireworks, and of course champagne. This sparkling drink, which was produced for the first time by a monk named Dom Perignon, is for celebrating . The recipe is simple: add sugar and yeast to wine, and then wait until the yeast "prepares" the champagne. The aging period can range from a few months to two to three years.

Chernobyl: Radioactive clouds over Europe

26th of April 1986. Block number four of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor exploded, a disaster for which the experts have never found a sufficient expression. This is far more than "the biggest accident." Chernobyl is the super–disaster. The radioactive cloud drifts over the neighboring city of Pripjat, but the authorities do not inform either the population or the surrounding countries about the threat of danger. Meanwhile, the radioactivity moves to the west...

Diabetes: the insidious killer

Diabetes is a chronic disease of the metabolic system of the body. Among the main symptoms are the increased occurance of sugar in the urine and the increased need to urinate. In the Middle Ages diabetes was diagnosed by tasting the urine for sweetness. The cause of the disease is the lack of the hormone insulin or the body's insulin insensitivity, or both. The fourteenth of November, is World Diabetes Day, focusing our attention on this disease and the prevention of it.

Elvis Presley: The King of Rock 'n' Roll

The greatest superstar of all time, Elvis Presley came from the very bottom of society, almost came out of nowhere. He made his first hit recording at Memphis Sun Studios in the 50ties. His career spanned a tumultuous period , and soon became the symbol of a new and free era – the libertine- behaving rock star was loved by youth of the time, and regarded as a product of hell by their parents. His life in the 70ties was about glittering costumes and drug addiction. Fans have still not been able to accept his early death.

Formula 1: 60 years ago began the great circus

Formula 1 is the best-known motor-racing championship in the world. Whether in Dubai, Kinshasa or Moscow, both the racers and the cars they drive are household names. How did Formula 1 actually start? We look back at the racers, the races, and the excitement of the Formula 1 circuit, from its lowly and modest beginnings in Britain to the magic of Fangio and the luxury of Monaco. Formula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1, and currently officially referred to as the FIA Formula One World Championship,[2] is the highest class of single seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants' cars must comply[3]. The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held on purpose-built circuits, and public roads. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with racing drivers, constructor teams, track officials, organizers, and circuits required to be holders of valid Super Licences,[4] the highest class racing licence issued by the FIA.[5] Formula One cars race at high speeds, up to 360 km/h (220 mph) with engines revving up to a formula imposed limit of 18,000 rpm. The cars are capable of pulling in excess of 5 g on some corners. The performance of the cars is highly dependent on electronics (although traction control and driving aids have been banned since 2008), aerodynamics, suspension, and tyres. The formula has seen many evolutions and changes through the history of the sport. Europe is Formula One's traditional centre, where all of the teams are based, and where around half of the races take place. However, the sport's scope has expanded significantly in recent years and Grands Prix are held all over the world. Formula One is a massive television event, with an aggregate global audience of 600 million people for each race.[6] The Formula One Group is the legal holder of the commercial rights.[7] As the world's most expensive sport,[8] its economic effect is significant, and its financial and political battles are widely covered. Its high profile and popularity make it an obvious merchandising environment, which leads to very high investments from sponsors, translating into extremely high budgets for the constructors. However, mostly since 2000, due to the always increasing expenditures, several teams, including works teams from car makers and those teams with minimal support from the automotive industry, have gone bankrupt or been bought out by companies wanting to establish a team within the sport; these buyouts are also influenced by Formula One limiting the number of participant teams.

Formula One is the highest classes of single-seater automobile racing sanctioned by the Fédéral Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix held on purpose-built circuits and public roads. The results of the races are combined to determine two annual World Championships - one for the drivers and one for the constructors. A modern Formula One car is a single-seat, open cockpit, open wheel race car with substantial front and rear wings, and an engine positioned behind the driver. The cars must be powered by a 2.4 litre naturally-aspirated engine in a V8 engine configuration that has no more than four valves per cylinder. As of the start of the 2009 season all engines are now limited to 18,000 rpm in an effort to improve engine reliability and to cut costs down overall. And now let's take a trip back in time! The first Formula One World Championship was won in 1950 by Italian Giuseppe Farina in his Alfa Romeo. He barely defeated his Argentine teammate Juan Manuel Fangio. However Fangio won the title in1951,1954,1955,1956 and 1957. His record of five World Championship titles stood for 45 years until German driver Michael Schumacher took his sixth title in 2003. It was then that he became the most successful driver in Formula 1 history. Of the 249 races he drove in, he won 91 Grand Prix and has been World Champion 7 times, the only driver to do so. Finally, let’s mention some interesting fact from the world of Formula 1! Approximately 80,000 components come together to make an F1 car. Even though these components are assembled with an accuracy of 99.9%, it will still start if 80 things are wrong. F1 car engines complete their life in about two hours of racing. Just compare this with normal engines which go on serving us faithfully for a decent 20 years. An F1 car can accelerate from 0 to 160 kph then back to 0 in just four seconds. Road car tyres can last 60 000 to 100 000 km. Racing tyres are designed to last only 90 to 120 km. Every tire loses weight during a race; this loss amounts to about 0.5kg due to wear. The drivers lose about 2 kilos of body weight during a day’s racing. The temperature of the cockpit can rise to over 50 degrees celsius during the race.
