Exercising while you are pregnant can also help you significantly during labour. If there's one thing that I would change about my birth experience, it's that I would have worked on my leg muscles much more than I did. During labour your body will tell you to get into positions which enable the quickest and safest birth, some of these positions you may never have spent much time in and certainly for me, I had never tried kneeling or squatting for five hours before. This resulted in severe leg shake during labour and a couple of days where my legs ached more than any other part of my body. I spent the majority of my birth day on a birthing ball so I would have benefited greatly from taking the time out during my pregnancy to do some birthing ball exercises.

In this month’s Tales from the Missionary Hut, our globally concerned inventors lend the poor in the developing world a hand with the help of much vaunted pedal power. Based on a design by Nottingham students, an intriguing machine extracts nut oil with bicycle wheels. Is it nutty or will it get those lazy leg muscles moving and help our peers hit oil? Apparently, it has already taken off.
This demonstration video discusses and shows the features of the Cressi Reaction Adjustable Strap Fins. The Fins offer maximum thrust with minimum amount of force. They also provide more speed and power than traditional fins. This creates less strain on the leg muscles reducing the diver´s fatigue and subsequent air consumption.

(Psalms 139:14) I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
And just how fearfully and wonderfully made are we? Well here are a few examples:
There are about....
One-hundred-thousand hairs on the average human scalp.
There are about....
One-quadrillion "connections" (synapses) between the one-hundred-billion cells (neurons) of an adult brain. The brain's one hundred billion neurons match the number of stars in the Milky Way, and the number of connections active in the brain's functioning verge on the number of stars in the entire known universe. To fill the capacity of all those synapses, a person would have to learn a one-billion volume encyclopedia (a million "letters" per encyclopedia). That’s enough to fill a bookshelf 10,000 miles long. In contrast, the Library of Congress (The largest library in the world) only has 17 million volumes. The brain is the most complex structure in the known universe, far surpassing, by many orders of magnitude, the most advanced supercomputers. One human brain generates more electrical impulses in a single day than all of the world's telephones put together. This is all done with the power equivalent of a single flashlight, 12 Watts. All of our senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, feeling) are transformed to electrical impulses which are sent to general regions of synapses in the brain where we, after complex transformations, finally become conscious of it. To accomplish all this thinking, the brain uses 20 to 25% of the body’s oxygen and 20% of its blood sugar, even though it is only 2% (3 pounds) of the body’s weight. You don't consume any more calories studying for a test than you do gazing at a cloud.

Seven-million shades of color the human eye can detect. It takes 200 million billionths of a second for the retina to create vision from light. The eye is so sensitive it can detect a candle one mile away. There is a biological computer in the retina which processes and compresses the information from those millions of light sensitive cells before sending it to the visual cortex where the complex stream of information is then decompressed. While today's digital hardware is extremely impressive, it is clear that the human retina's real-time performance goes unchallenged. To actually simulate 10 milliseconds of the complete processing of even a single nerve cell from the retina would require the solution of about 500 simultaneous nonlinear differential equations 100 times and would take at least several minutes of processing time on a Cray supercomputer. Keeping in mind that there are 10 million or more such cells interacting with each other in complex ways, it would take a minimum of 100 years of Cray time to simulate what takes place in your eye many times every second. The human is the only species known to shed tears when they are sad. The eye is infinitely more complex than any man-made camera. It can handle 1.5 million simultaneous messages, and gathers 80% of all the knowledge absorbed by the brain. The retina covers less than a square inch, and contains 137 million light-sensitive receptor cells, 130 million rods (allowing the eye to see in black and white), and 7 million cones (allowing the eye to see in full color). The rod can detect a single photon. For visible light the energy carried by a single photon would be around a tiny 4 x 10-19 Joules; this energy is just sufficient to excite a single molecule in a photoreceptor cell of an eye. In an average day, the eye moves about 100,000 times, using muscles that, milligram for milligram, are among the body’s strongest. The body would have to walk 50 miles to exercise the leg muscles an equal amount. The eye is self-cleaning. Lacrimal glands produce secretions (e.g., tears) to flush away dust and other foreign materials. Eyelids act as windshield washers. The blinking process (3-6 times a minute) keeps the sensitive cornea moist and clean. And, tears contain a potent microbe-killer (lysozyme) which guards the eyes against bacterial infection. During times of stress, one eye will “rest” while the other does 90% of the work; then the process is reversed, allowing both eyes equal amounts of rest. The brain receives millions of simultaneous reports from the eyes. When its designated wavelength of light is present, each rod or cone triggers an electrical response to the brain, which then absorbs a composite set of yes-or-no messages from all the rods and cones.
There are about....
Ten-trillion levels of intensity to human hearing (from threshold to pain, 0 to 130 decibels). This makes the sense of hearing the widest ranging of all senses. The ear is capable of detecting pressure variations of less than two-ten-thosanths-of-a-millionth of barometric pressure. This moves the ear drum about one-hundreth-millionth of an inch. This threshold of hearing corresponds to a vibration width of only one-hundreth of an hydrogen atom’s diameter. (Hydrogen is the smallest atom.)
There are about....
Ten-thousand different odors the average person is able to detect. Our noses are so sensitive we can detect the odors of certain substances even when they are diluted to 1 part in 30 billion and are so keen we can tell which direction a odor is coming from. Each person gives off a distinctive scent signature (like a fingerprint).
There are about....
Two and a half-billion beats from the heart once a person reaches seventy. The heart will pump forty-eight-million gallons of blood by then and could fill 2000 railroad tanker cars stretching over 20 miles. In one hour the heart works hard enough to raise a one ton weight one yard from the ground. The heart is so strong that it could shoot a stream of blood over 30 feet. There are over sixty-thousand miles of blood vessels in the average person. That's enough to go around the world two and a half times, if they were stretched out end to end! A blood cell will make one circuit, from the heart through the major organs and part of the blood system, and back, in an average of one minute. Over 2 million red blood cells are made every second, if all of a person’s red blood cells were laid out side by side it would stretch over 100 thousand miles. That’s over 4 times around the equator of the earth.
There are about....
One-hundred-thousand pounds of food and fourteen-thousand gallons of liquid consumed by the average person in their lifetime.
There are about....
Five-hundred different functions of the liver, some of which include: metabolizing food into nutrients; detoxifying poisons; purifying the blood; manufacturing blood clotting agents and blood proteins; manufacturing and storing hormones; and maintaining body fat levels such as cholesterol and triglycerides. The liver is so resilient it can grow back to normal size in three months, even if only twenty percent of the liver remains.
There are about.....
One-hundred trillion cells in the average person. Each cell has over a million unique structures and processes (a complexity comparable to a large city ). Each cell consists of "artificial languages and their decoding systems, memory banks for information storage and retrieval, elegant control systems regulating the automated assembly of parts and components, error fail-safe and proof-reading devices utilized for quality control, assembly processes involving the principle of prefabrication and modular construction and a capacity not equaled in any of our most advanced machines, for one of our most advanced machines would have to be capable of self-replicating its entire structure within a matter of a few hours. Every one of those trillions of cells (except for the brain cells) is regenerated and replaced on average of every seven years! Each cell has about ten-thousand times as many molecules as our Milky Way galaxy has stars. Skin is completely renewed every twenty-seven days and the skeleton is completely renewed every three months.
There are about....
Six feet of DNA packed in the nucleus of each cell, which is only 1.4-millionths of a meter wide. If you could stretch lengthwise all the DNA in just one human, you could go 125 billion miles (from the Sun to Pluto and back fifteen times)! If the string of DNA were about a yard thick, the machinery that copies the DNA would be about the size of a FedEx delivery truck. Unlike a truck, however, this machinery would travel along the "string" at 375 miles per hour, copying the DNA into another string. The data compression of the DNA is up to 12 codes thick.
There are about....
Three-billion letters of code on that six feet of DNA. The DNA contains the “complete parts list” of the trillions upon trillions of proteins that are in your body, plus, it contains the blueprint of how all these countless trillions of proteins go together, plus it contains the self-assembly instructions that somehow tells all these countless proteins how to put themselves together in the proper way. According to Bill Gates, the DNA code is written in some type of super-code that is far, far more advanced than any computer program ever written by man. If you were to write out that super-code, you could fill a three-thousand volume encyclopedia (a million letters per encyclopedia) ! If you were to read the code aloud, at a rate of three letters per second for twenty-four hours per day (about one-hundred-million letters a year), it would take you over thirty years to read it. The capacity of a DNA molecule to store information is so efficient that all the information needed to specify an organism as complex as man weighs less than a few thousand-millionths of a gram. The information needed to specify the design of all species of organisms that have ever existed (a number estimated to be one billion) could easily fit into a teaspoon with plenty of room left over for every book ever written on the face of earth. For comparison sake, if mere man were to write out the proper locations of all those proteins in just one human body, in the limited mathematical language he now uses, it would take a bundle of CD-ROM disks greater than the size of the moon, or a billion-trillion computer hard drives, and that’s just the proper locations for the protein molecules in one human body, that billion-trillion computer hard-drives would not contain a single word of instruction telling those protein molecules how to self assemble themselves.
There are about....
Twenty-five-million spools on which the six feet of DNA is wound so as to keep it from becoming tangled . At thousands of different sites the DNA is constantly being wound or unwound to reveal the proper code to the cell's transcription mechanisms. On top of this engineering nightmare, each time a new cell is required, a copy of the DNA must be made and then split apart from the old DNA!
There are about....
One-hundred-and-fifty-three-thousand different types or classes of proteins in the human body. An individual protein is so small that we would have to magnify it a million times to be able to see it with our eyes. Each protein is made of a complex sequence of the twenty different L-amino acids which are the basic building blocks of all life forms on earth. How complex? Let us consider insulin, one of the simplest proteins. It has fifty-one possible locations for an L-amino acid to occupy. If we theoretically try every possible combination of putting the twenty different L-amino acids in the fifty-one places possible, and we filled a basket (large) with just one electron from all the combinations, the basket would weigh one-hundred billion times the weight of the earth!!
More amazing yet....
The possibilities of making a specific one-hundred L-amino acid sequence into a desired protein by pure chance are even more astronomical, EVEN IF every atomic particle in the entire universe were dedicated to being L-amino acids. A universe full of L-amino acids trying totally new and unique combinations for groups of one-hundred, at the rate of a trillion times a second for thirty billion years, would have only a one in a trillion, trillion possibility of having made a specific one-hundred L-amino acid protein during that thirty billion years. In other words, only one trillion, trillionth of all the total combinations possible for a simple one-hundred L-amino acid protein would have been made during that thirty billion years!! The simplest life form on earth requires millions of proteins molecules which are divided into hundreds of different and distinctly shaped types. When considering the interwoven complexity required for these millions of precisely shaped protein molecules, it becomes apparent life originating by natural means is clearly impossible.
The previously stated odds are much worse than I've shown for the one-hundred L-amino acid protein. It is not enough for the L-amino acids to be in the same place at the same time. Many times, L-amino acids must be held and kept from folding on to each other while they are being assembled in to the correct sequence for the final protein. When they are finally correctly sequenced, the L-amino acids are released from their hold and guided by other proteins into folding into the final precisely correct 3 dimensional protein shape! It would take the most powerful super-computer in the world an entire year just to figure out how one "simple" one-hundred L-amino acid protein will look in its final 3-dimensional form once it has been released from its hold. Yet the protein accomplishes its final shape in a fraction of a second!
Biophysicist Hubert Yockey determined that natural selection would have to explore 1.40 x 10^70 different genetic codes to discover the optimal universal genetic code that is found in nature. The maximum amount of time available for it to originate is 6.3 x 10^15 seconds. Natural selection would have to evaluate roughly 10^55 codes per second to find the one that is optimal. Put simply, natural selection lacks the time necessary to find the optimal universal genetic code we find in nature. (Gitt, In The Beginning was Information; Rana, The Cells design page 177)

more recent notes:
The average number of cells in the human body is between 75 and 100 trillion cells. 300 million cells in the human body die and are replaced (most of them) every minute. If all the DNA was removed from a single cell in a person's body and laid end to end, it would be six feet long. If the DNA was removed from all of the cells in a person's body and laid end to end, it would stretch from Earth to the sun and back 450 times, or about 135 billion kilometers. The human genome, according to Bill Gates the founder of Microsoft, far, far surpasses, in complexity, any computer program ever written by man. The data compression (multiple meanings) of some stretches of human DNA is estimated to be up to 12 codes thick! (Trifonov, 1989) No line of computer code ever written by man approaches that level of data compression (poly-functional complexity). There are about three-billion letters of code on the six feet of DNA curled up in each human cell. The amount of information in human DNA is roughly equivalent to 12 sets of The Encyclopaedia Britannica—an incredible 384 volumes worth of detailed information that would fill 48 feet of library shelves! If you were to read the code aloud, at a rate of three letters per second for twenty-four hours per day (about one-hundred-million letters a year), it would take you over thirty years to read it. The capacity of a DNA molecule to store information is so efficient all the information needed to specify an organism as complex as man weighs less than a few thousand-millionths of a gram. The information needed to specify the design of all species of organisms which have ever existed (a number estimated to be one billion) could easily fit into a teaspoon with plenty of room left over for every book ever written on the face of the earth. For comparison sake, if mere man were to try to 'quantum teleport' just one human body (change a physical human body into "pure information" and then 'teleport' it to another physical location) it would take at least 10^32 bits just to decode the teleportation event, or a cube of CD-ROM disks 1000 kilometers on 1 side, and would take over one hundred million centuries to transmit all that information for just one human body even with the best optical fibers conceivable!
A fun talk on teleportation - Professor Samuel Braunstein
On top of that the entire digital output of the entire world is only 10^21 bytes or 10^22 bits and Werner Gitt observes that the storage capacity of just “1 cubic cm of DNA is 10^21 bits. (DNA – deoxyribonucleaic acid.)”
