In the searing Summer heat of 35-42 degrees centigrade, I enthusiastically rode on my rented red-bicycle, trot, tacked along with a tour-group, sweated, toweled, drank bottled-water, and ice-creamed my way through all the must-see tourist spots. Hopping on and off air-conditioned buses (using the convenient swipe-card) and collecting new bicycles at each of the hundreds of bicycle bays around the city, was --- fun! Here are some photos to share for my Summer work-out and holiday fun. Hope you enjoy the photos!

  • What Does the DNA Want? 2017-7-5 00:41

    Thanks, @Liononthehunt for sharing your views.

    DNA is actually the product of chemical reactions from the basic building-blocks of elementary particles, to larger molecules and the creation of genes. This DNA build-up eventually led to the conception of a finite life-form, and natural selection is the net 'chemical' attraction of one life-form for another choosing the 'fittest' (containing its personal biological master-plan or diversity among its species) for the survival of that particular species. Biological diversity (creating different species) exists not because of natural selection, but because of the location a species originates from. On a macro scale of life-forms or species, natural selection and survival of the fittest means the lion will kill the deer easily as it is fitter and stronger.  DNA itself doesn't see, and doesn't think, that I agree and may I add, doesn't care either - It just wants to follow the chemical laws!

    Your blog is reminiscent of a book written by Richard Dawkins that is titled The Selfish Genes.
    It is stated in the book genes' ultimate goal is to make sure they can survive and be passed down from generation to generation, and DNA as a genetic element of all living creature, adapts, mutates, or even recycles, by a mechanism called natural selection, and that is why biological diversity exists.
    I just beg to differ on your point of DNA evolving a master-plan to better its chance of survival through copulating with other members of its species, since it is also widely recognized this is the result of natural selection.  DNA itself doesn't see, and doesn't think either.
