comment How does strength of a pulse related to EKG(ECG)?
Predict? I have no idea. I know V-tach and A-tach can be reasonably predicted by increasingly chaotic signals on an EKG, but I don't think the equipment would have the granularity to predict "strong" and "weak" beats.

comment What is the point of having evolved two nostrils?
I doubt it's so much that two nostrils are that much more beneficial than one as much as that most complex organisms follow bilateral symmetry for their body design. That said, your body will clog one and keep the other clear during fevers, allergies, or when it's cold to prevent it from drying out completely.

comment Why are men stronger than women?
@QuoraFeans - Then ask your question again, and be more precise. You're asking why the genders diverged in capacity for muscle development, and I answered that the theories involve Female-Selection for stronger men and that men acted as the defenders/hunters. What type of answer are you looking for?

comment Can (any) human cells learn?
I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. What do you mean by "learn", and are you proposing a situation where the cells have somehow become removed from the body?

comment Is the sense for salt depending on the electrolyte level in our body?
@try-catch-finally - Regular "taste" is depolarization. For sodium that simply involves the influx of the ions over the cell membrane of the taste buds, and that will cause a depolarization without other mechanisms. That happens when you eat something with Sodium, regardless of what you taste. Taste is left up to interpretation in the brain, and the brain is great at ignoring stuff that doesn't really matter. If the drink tastes less salty, it wouldn't be the mechanism occurring - but it would be the mechanism occurring less often, or just as often but less noticed.

@try-catch-finally - ;-) The desensitization is one potential reason. Subjective occurrences are pretty difficult to pin down. It could be short term desensitization, or your brain could simply be paying more attention to other ingredients (water) after such a long workout. If it's within a few hours then it's probably an attention modification - de/sensitization can work on that short a time scale, but not usually. I would say that the phenomenon is not related to your thesis. I'll add another comment.
