The Viking age lasted from AD 790 to 1100. The Vikings were mainly from Norway, Denmark, and Sweden, and were the best shipbuilders and seamen of their time. They were able to travel long distances in their longships and attack towns on the coasts of Britain and Ireland. They reached Greenland, Iceland, and even America. The Vikings’ boats were long, narrow, light, and flexible. They made them out of oak wood. The typical length of a longship was about 20 meters. The hulls of the ships were shallow so that they could dock on beaches and sail in shallow water. A longship had a large, square, woolen sail, which the Vikings covered in horse fat to make it waterproof. The main power for the longship was from the oars, which were all along the ship. There were usually a crew of about 60 men who rowed the boat. The sailors usually placed their shields along the side of the boat for protection. They also carved the fronts of their ships into the shape of a dragon’s head in order to scare the enemies.

Healthy people are increasingly turning to brain-enhancing drugs like Ritalin for treating narcolepsy to boost their performance in school or at work, researchers said. And while some expressed alarm over the trend, others embraced the idea, provided the drugs are proven safe. “In the United States, stimulant medications are widely abused,” said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse. “They are abused for a variety of reasons, including the fact that people want to get high, but there is the realization that they are being increasingly utilized to improve cognitive performance,” she said. “This is not something that is going away,” Volkow said, adding that researchers must study the long-term effects these drugs might have in healthy people. Her concern follows a commentary in the journal Nature that argues for use of the drugs in healthy adults as a legitimate way of improving brain power, much like education, the Internet, or other helpful tools. “We should welcome new methods of improving our brain function,” Henry Greely of Stanford Law School in California, Barbara Sahakian, a psychiatry professor from the University of Cambridge in Britain and others wrote. They cited a recent survey that found nearly 7 percent of students in U.S. universities have used prescription stimulants, and on some campuses, as many as a quarter of students have used the drugs for non-therapeutic purposes. The researchers called for doctors, educators, regulators, and others to evaluate the risks and develop policies governing the use of cognitive-enhancing drugs. Volkow said she and other experts would discuss the issue at the meeting of American College of Neuropsychopharmacology in Nashville, Tennessee.
