Pituitary Gland
In vertebrate anatomy, the pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea and weighing 0.5 grams (0.018 oz) in humans. It is a protrusion off the bottom of the hypothalamus at the base of the brain. The hypophysis rests upon the hypophysial fossa of the sphenoid bone in the center of the middle cranial fossa and is surrounded by a small bony cavity (sella turcica) covered by a dural fold (diaphragma sellae).[2] The anterior pituitary (or adenohypophysis) is a lobe of the gland that regulates several physiological processes (including stress, growth, reproduction, and lactation). The intermediate lobe synthesizes and secretes melanocyte-stimulating hormone

Farmer
A farmer[1] (also called an agriculturer) is a person engaged in agriculture, raising living organisms for food or raw materials. The term usually applies to people who do some combination of raising field crops, orchards, vineyards, poultry, or other livestock. A farmer might own the farmed land or might work as a laborer on land owned by others, but in advanced economies, a farmer is usually a farm owner, while employees of the farm are known as farm workers, or farmhands. However, in the not so distant past, a farmer was a person who promotes or improves the growth of (a plant, crop, etc.) by labor and attention, land or crops or raises animals (as livestock or fish).Contents1 History1.1 Advancements in technology2 Types2.1 Techniques3 Farming organizations 4 Income 5 Occupational hazards 6 See also 7 References 8 External linksHistory Farming has been dated back as far as the Neolithic

Chandra Bahadur Dangi
Chandra Bahadur Dangi
(30 November 1939 – 3 September 2015) (Nepali: चन्द्रबहादुर डाँगी,  listen (help·info)) was the shortest man in recorded history for whom there is irrefutable evidence, measuring 54.6 cm (1 ft 9 1⁄2 in).[2] Dangi was a primordial dwarf. He broke the record of Gul Mohammed (1957–97), whose height was 57 cm (1 ft 10 in). Chandra came to the attention of the media when a wood contractor saw him in his village in the Dang district of Nepal, and he was awarded the title of shortest adult human ever recorded after his height was measured in February 2012.[3] He was subsequently included in the Guinness World Records
