Some species of animals exhibit homosexual behavior

HOMOSEXUAL behavior seems to violate nature’s need for procreation, but recent research studies have found out that homosexual behavior in animals may be much more common than previously thought.

Several researchers have discovered that humans are not the only mammals that practice and express homosexuality and that evolution may have something to do with this behavior.

For instance, the University of Oslo’s “Against Nature?” was an exhibit last 2006 to 2007 that showed about 1,500 animal species that practice homosexual behavior, like in mammals such as bisons, bears and rats; in fish species such as salmon; reptiles like lizards; amphibians like frogs; and insects such as house flies.

NATANONG mo na ba sa iyong sarili kung bakit tila pagod na pagod ka kapag puyat ka?

Ayon kay Edilberto Gonzaga, isang propesor sa Department of Psychology ng College of Science, bukod sa panghihina ng katawan, may dalawang epekto ang kakulangan sa tulog. Ito ay pawang sikolohikal at pisyolohikal.

Sa sikolohikal na aspekto, naaapektuhan ang haba ng atensyon, konsentrasyon, tamang pag-iisip at nagiging sensitibo.

“Hindi ba, kapag tayo ay puyat mabilis tayong mapikon at mainis sa ating paligid?” puna ni Gonzaga. “Mabilis din tayong mapagod at mawalan ng pokus sa ating mga ginagawa.”

The Science of falling in love

FROM making your heart beat to getting light-headed when you see your beloved, love indeed makes us feel and do unusual things. But the irrationalities often associated with the heart, in truth, comes from a source inside the brain—the hypothalamus. It’s always the brain, after all, that’s over the heart.
