Life Expectancy of Subnational divisions mapped

Life expectancy is a demographic measure of the average time an individual is assumed to live based on the year of its birth, its current age, and other demographic factors, including gender. In the Bronze Age, life expectancy was just 26 years. In ancient Greece, people lived on an average of 28 years. Even in 1800, life expectancy was around 30 years in western Europe. Half of the kids died before age ten. They died because of what are now diseases or medical problems that are easy to treat now global. In societies with a life expectancy of 30, for instance, may have few people dying at precisely 30: most will die before 20 or after 45. In 1900 world average life expectancy was 31 years, in 1950 – 48 years. The 2017 world life expectancy was 72.2 years. Nevertheless, life expectancy is very various in the nations of the world . Nowadays, life expectancy in the Central African Republic is about 53, while life expectancy in Japan is about 85. Female human life expectancy is noticeably

It is a video of artist Ed Khan's 'Wind Wall', a dynamic art installation covering the outer walls of parking in Clayton, Missouri, the U.S. As the wind blows it affects the wall's metal strips, showing the wind's pattern.

3D model of of deadly сoronavirus SARS-CoV-2

Biomedical visualization studio Visual Science has designed the most comprehensive and scientifically detailed 3D model of the SARS-CoV-2 virus at atomic resolution. The model is based on the newest scientific study into the structure of coronaviruses. To create it, Visual Science used the same structural bioinformatics methods in fundamental analysis and drug development. SARS-CoV-2 particles are pleiomorphic, which means that the virion's shape can differ. But, most virus particles are approximately spherical, with diameters varying between 50 and 150 nanometers. The surface of the virus particle is randomly covered with ninety copies of protein S, forming "crown." The virus uses these proteins to attach to other cells. As of May 15, almost 4.5 million cases of infection were registered in the world, more than 300 thousand people died.  Most of the coronavirus infection cases were registered in the United States: approximately 1.5 million people were infected, and abou
