6 ways to spend your birthday this year


posted on 6th of june, 2017

We all get one each year and sometimes we simply don’t know how to mark it. Yes, I’m talking about birthdays, beloved and dreaded in the same time, however, never forgotten. So, here are 6 ideas to celebrate yours this year.

1. Call your Night Owls and hang on a branch. They can bring the party supplies and you can just bring yourself simply ‘cause you’ve always been the cutest. Cake is optional and it depends on branch width, length and strength, but you will certainly enjoy “hanging out”.

  


2. Buy a cake and make a mess. Who said cakes are just for eating? It’s your birthday, you can practically get away with anything so if splashing around in sweet cakes is your thing just do it.

About the insulin:

In 1916, Nicolae Paulescu, a Romanian professor of physiology at the University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, developed an aqueous pancreatic extract which, when injected into a diabetic dog, had a normalizing effect on blood-sugar levels. He had to interrupt his experiments because of World War I, and in 1921 he wrote four papers about his work carried out in Bucharest and his tests on a diabetic dog. Later that year, he published "Research on the Role of the Pancreas in Food Assimilation"
