Genetic scientists warn that redheads are a dying breed; soon they will become extinct in the next 100 years. National Geographic magazine reports that less than two per cent of the world’s population has the natural red hair.
There are many famous redheads in history, such as the bard William Shakespeare, Christopher Columbus and the Queen Elizabeth, and the more recent ones Peter Beattie, Nicole Kidman, Prince Harry and Michael Voss. But the future doesn’t look bright for the redheads according to the National Geographic article. Red hair was created by a genetic mutation in northern Europe some thousands of years ago.
The article reports that the gene had the beneficial effect of increasing the body’s ability to cope with sunlight; it helped make vitamin D from Sunlight. But now because of worldwide interactions, today’s carriers are more prone to skin cancer and are more sensitive to heat and cold-related pain. Because of smaller percentage of redheads present in the population, it has reduced the chances considerably for the redheads to get redhead partners, so their offspring may or may not be a redhead.
The redhead can produce a baby from a single redhead parent; the chances rise when both the parents are redhead however. Some experts warn redheads could be gone as early 2060, but others say the gene can be dormant in the reproductive system for generations before returning. It is too early to predict redhead extinction, more research and analysis needs to be done if that is the case. For more about red hair check the Wikipedia article. I think it is time to start “Save the Redheads” campaign. Nicole Kidman could be an ideal choice to head the campaign. Do you have redheads in your family side? Do you see similar patterns?

Dr. David Weeks, a British consultant clinical psychologist and former head of old age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, made me blush with his research that claims regular sex can make you look younger. In a new study, Dr. Weeks found that older men and women with an active sex life appeared five to seven years younger than their actual age...
1. It releases anti-inflammatory molecules. Dr. Amy Wechsler, who takes a whole-body approach to dermatology, credits sex for its skin-healing abilities. "We're constantly damaging and repairing our skin, and you want to tip the scale more towards repair," said Dr. Wechsler.
She explained, "When you have sex, you're bathing the skin in anti-inflammatory molecules such as oxytocin and beta endorphins. As we get older, we don't heal as often as we repair. But having sex can turn the clock back on that."
2. It makes your skin physically glow. Sexual intercourse also boosts our immune system, prevents stagnation, allows us to feel more alive and sweat out toxins from our pores, according to Amy Levine, sex coach and founder of Ignite Your Pleasure.
"This translates to our skin's radiance and being more at ease with facial expression (as we use our facial muscles to express ourselves during a sexual encounter). Ultimately, giving a post-sex glow and possibly helping to ward off wrinkles," said Levine.
Sweating is sure to impart a dewy glow, however Dr. Wechsler said that it is an increase in circulation that triggers the flush. Besides sex, there is only one other activity that releases the anti-aging hormone oxytocin, and that is childbirth.
Never mind the unrest in Turkey, the bombings in Iraq, the elections in Iran and the NSA whistleblower hiding in Hong Kong -- the biggest geo-political issue right now is whether Russian presidentVladimir Putinstole New England Patriots ownerBob Kraft's Super Bowl ring.
Kraft met the Russian leader in 2005, and handed the ring to Putin. That's where the stories diverge. A few days after the visit, Kraft told the media that it was a gift. The ring has been housed in an archive of the Kremlin since then, as all valuable gifts to the government are. But a few days ago, Kraft changed his story. He told theNew York Postthat he was just showing the ring to Putin, but as soon as he handed it over, "he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out."
Now a Putin spokesman is firing back. Dmitry Peskov says, "What Mr. Kraft is saying now is weird. I was standing 20 centimeters away from him and Mr. Putin, and saw and heard how Mr. Kraft gave this ring as a gift."
The ring, which is encrusted with 124 diamonds, is worth more than $25,000.
