comment How do kidney cells excrete their own wastes?
Could you describe "if you talking about the areas were the actual waste is dumped" a bit more precisely. This is quite unclear as to what you mean.

comment Is there any research paper which identifies left and right brained behavior?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doreen_Kimura (who has since passed) had some papers from the 1970s that describe the effect of handedness on audition (so they would cover both of your main points).

comment About the plight of Elephants and efforts to conserve them?
I don't think this is really answerable one way or the other. Poachers may not look carefully enough to see what they are aiming at, or worse, the yellow horn might attract more predators. Failing that anyone's actually studied this issue, the answers are just going to be a matter of opinion.

comment When the mind is highly active, roughly how many neurons become excited in one second?
What do you mean by "happen"? Synapses can be strengthened by ongoing activity (or weakened by a lack of it), but they don't really appear out of nowhere on that timecourse.
