Happening on the North Pole : global warming in term of melting ice June 28, 2008

Global warming has become a important issue today..and more of a worry.! Lot of scientist across the world.. is searching for all the information regarding the global warming.   
The North Pole and the predictions regarding the north pole.. is a big worry for the scientist and as well as for the people around the world.
It seems our worst fears may come true. For the first time in the human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.
Its expected that “North Pole may be ice free for the first time this summer”.
Firsthand, observations and satellite images show that the immediate area around the geographic North Pole is now mostly annual, or first-year, ice—thin new ice that forms each year during the winter freeze.
Such ice is much more tends to melt during the summer month, in comparison to perennial, thick and dense ice, that has lasted through multiple cycles of thawing and freezing.
IF it happens, it raises the prospect of the Arctic nations being able to exploit the valuable oil and mineral deposits below these a bed which have until now been impossible to extract because of the thick sea ice above.


The normally think ice formed over many years at the pole has been blown away  and replaced by huge swathes of thinner ice formed over a single year. The rate of melting is faster than last year, when there was an all time record loss of summer sea ice at Arctic.

Scientists are particularly interested in the North and South Poles because they are expected to show the most dramatic effects of global warming.

Models predict that the regions will see temperature increases roughly three times as quickly as the rest of the globe because of an effect known as ice albedo feedback, which occurs when highly reflective ice gives way to dark water.

The water absorbs much more of the sun’s energy, increasing temperatures and causing further ice melting.

Each summer the sea ice melts. But the last year, the loss of sea ice was so extensive that much of the Arctic Ocean became open water, with the water ice boundary coming just 1126.5 km away from the North Pole.


This means that about 70% of the sea ice present this spring was single year ice formed over last winter. Scientists predicts that much of the ice will melt this summer causing a global warming.

Here’s where the extent of sea ice in the Arctic stands now in relation to the average tracked between 1979 and 2000, and the remarkable ice loss in 2007:


Thus, all the data’s clearly figure out the extending ice on the poles.. and the knocking of global warming with the meting of ice on these poles. This clearly results, in the temperature change and thus effecting the climatic conditions as well..!!!!


well.. lets wait and see when we can go through  the clear image of this warming. Its expected not to reach by before 2013 to 2030.!

Thus, the global warming is not so far. And this can be easily visible in these , videos describing all the aspects of global warming and the melting of ice… on the North Pole.

Suffering Africa from corrupted policies by big guns: U.S. Rules the chart..! June 26, 2008

Well.. today who is unaware of one of the most richest part of the earth which is so surmounted with “minerals” and real good mineral wealth. This nation is always among the lime light and is always a issue to be spoken about n always catches the eyes of whole world including some true dominating power of the world like USA, UK , Russia..and many more.
And this lovely nation with so much of the mineral wealth and all.. is “AFRICA”.
Today, everyone speaks about this nation, its sufferings, its problems, and every minute single happening which later turn into  the huge pandemic for this nation.
The small ignite of diseases have turned into a giant fire.. and almost the whole part of the nation is suffering from it.. including women to child and even few who have not yet not seen the world.. and is still  to open their eyes.
And just imagine, what we are doing..??? we are just talking about the problems of this nation.. rather than taking the initiatives. Even if the inititaives are  been taken they r just restricted to paper work. are they really implemented..??
For this we need to question MR. George Bush…!!
As they promise to be the most working nation for betterment of this part of the world. Well.. but actually there are very few people who are truly.. aware of the real facts. The working of the policies of these nations and there implementation. But the methodology still says, that the U.S. is a generous provider of the aids to Africa. methodology also refers that Africa is miss-managed and corrupt and hence absorb more aid. 
The facts are otherwise. Total annual U.S. aid for all of Africa is about $3 billion. About $1 billion pays for emergency food aid, of which half is for transport. About $1.5 billion is for “technical cooperation,” essentially salaries of U.S. consultants. Only about $500 million a year — less than $1 per African — finances clinics, schools, food production, roads, power, Internet connectivity, safe drinking water, sanitation, family planning and lifesaving health interventions to fight malaria, AIDS and other diseases.
If the administration were more than modestly interested in helping Africa, it could learn about the huge gains made possible by Blair’s plan to provide about $50 billion a year to Africa by 2010 — with the U.S. kicking in $15 billion to $20 billion. With that money, Africa could control killer diseases, triple food production and cut hunger, and improve transportation and communications.

The new aid would not involve guesswork or be a blank check. The administration’s claim that budget restraints prevent more spending on Africa is the most cynical of its contentions.

The president has cut taxes by more than $200 billion a year, with the wealthiest Americans the chief beneficiaries, and has raised military spending by $200 billion a year. But when $20 billion is needed to keep the poorest of the poor in Africa alive and put the continent’s economies on a path toward long-term growth, there’s no money available.

Is this what we are doing to help Africa..!! Is that the measures are been taken by some big guns like U.S and U.K..!!  There market policies and there zeal to rule the world.. have always come over there efforts. And its been clearly.. shown in there efforts and strategies. They are just taking this nation to show the world that they are so helpful to everyone. Making a image like of saint..!!  but reality is something of which very few are aware of. And i guess should everyone know.
The millions of Africans who die young and the hundreds of millions going hungry are not victims of fate. They are the consequences of U.S. policy.

This post is for the social cause to make the people aware of the facts and polcies that these  nations adopt over the suffering nation. They should be helped.. they need our help… they never asked for the luxurious life… they have just looked for a meal of their day..!! can’t we even gave them that..!!

wake up…stop molesting Africa by our strategies and policies. don’t play with the future of millions of people… who are suffering already from so much of causes.!

i-Phones knocking at Indian Market.. GenX Phone.!! June 20, 2008

India is really making some real progress in the field of technology. The new generation phone i.e., “the i-phones” clearly proved the point that Indian market and people both are really looking for some fine technology with some best services to them. But the question of the launching of the i-phones and moreover their unlock version is a big question in the mind of the people framing all the sectors of the society.

Apple is launching the i-phones in different editions. In India 8GB version is among the pick of all. Apple will launch the Apple i Phones in partnership with telecom major Vodafone. The Indian placed market would get to see the 8GB version of the Apple iphone that is said to be  combine Wi-Fi capabilities with a powerful online music store, TV feeds, email clients and map based location guide.

The Apple iphone was expected to be priced at 28,000 previously. But recently, the rate of the i phones has decreased very instantly thus resulting in the variation in the cost of the i phone which is yet to be fixed in Indian market exactly. It may vary  to a good sum..!

Apple would look at the response to this Apple iPhone edition before launching the higher end Apple iPhone 16GB edition. Apple had earlier said that it aimed to bring the Apple iPhone to Asia within 2008. The i phones are expected to hit the Indian market on the Divali season… gifting iphones as the new tool to the tech progress of India. Though being so much of use, there are few pre- assumptions on the unlocking and functioning of the i-phones.

8Gb model of iphone where in the price has been dropped from $599 to $264.85. Lets see what pricing would be fixed when iphones would be sold in india and will they be unlocked version is another big question.

The issue of unlocking the Apple iPhone would surface in India as well. Unlocking the Apple iPhone has been a hot topic ever since its global launch. Unlocking the iPhone without losing call quality, free open source hacker kits like AppTapp and the like were subjects of discussion all around. The only way Indian mobile users can use an iPhone in India as of now is by unlocking it.

Here you can check some means to unlock the iphones. As, evryone one’s the unlocking of iphones has become much of an issue and a discuss theme rather than the launching of iphones. so, it has become very important to give the serious node at it.!

http://iphoneindia.gyanin.com/tag/unlock-iphone-in-india/

In India basically the iphones will be launched by vodafone and Airtel. They have decided to make this nxt geenration phone familiar among the common people, and is working hard to gave the best result out of it.!

 

Hybrid CaRs ReAdy To hit the INDIAN roads… CIvIc’s The First.!!! June 19, 2008

The last few weeks has been abuzz with a slew of launches in the auto industry in India. Two themes have clearly emerged as the next wave—lower price and eco-friendliness. The answer to eco-friendliness has been pretty dominated by the hybrid vehicles displayed at the Auto Expo, New Delhi, this year by many players. Following this, of course, have been a barrage of articles on why hybrids is ‘the technology’ for India and its impact has been discussed and debated in various forums. This effort is to assess the potential economic and environmental impact of hybrids and whether this could well be just another bright spot among the numerous efforts in this direction.

Hybrid vehicles run on electricity and another fuel, which could be petrol, diesel or bio-fuel. The car owner has the option to drive the car using either electricity or petrol and can easily switch from one to another. These vehicles help reduce emissions by generating power from an electric motor, burning less fuel for each mile travelled.

With rising concerns about environmental pollution and global warming, everyone is trying to do their bit towards correcting the same. Honda Motor Co, with the launch of their Civic Hybrid, had contributed their bit too. Now, the company has launched the vehicle in the Indian market too. On 18th June 2008, Japanese car maker Honda Motor Co unveiled its first hybrid vehicle in India, when it launched its sedan Civic, already available in 32 other countries of the world. Honda Civic Hybrid has been equipped with both a petrol engine and an electric battery.

Honda Civic Hybrid The car will be imported in India, as a completely built unit (CBU), at the import duty of 104 per cent. This is the reason why its launch price will be a steep Rs 21.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The CBU will be imported from Japan, where the hybrid car is being produced for the entire global market. As per Mr Masahiro Takedagawa, President and CEO – Honda Siel Cars India, the company is exploring the option of import the engine and components to India and then assembling the car, as a semi-knocked down unit.

If the company is able to establish that in the near future, the cost of the car will come down significantly, since a semi-knocked down attracts much less duty. According to the officials of Honda Motor Co, the main aim behind the launch of the hybrid car in India is not the generation of high volumes. Rather, the company wants to let people be aware of its technology and commitment to the environment. The company has already imported 130 cars in India and expects the sales to reach around 300 during the year.


As far as the possibility of making Civic Hybrid in India is concerned, Mr Masahiro Takedagawa has ruled out the same. The reason for this was cited as technical constraints, which do not allow the car to be made anywhere in the world, except Japan. Honda Civic Hybrid will be offered with a 1.3 liter petrol engine. The engine and the motor will function together, right from the time of the start of the car to acceleration. However, once the car reached a high speed, it will automatically go on engine.

In the case where the car seems to be idling, usually being driven at 40-50 km per hour, the petrol engine will automatically stop working. The car will, rather, starts operating on battery on its own, thereby leading to saving of fuel as well as maximum fuel efficiency. According to the company officials, the fuel efficiency of Honda Civic Hybrid is somewhere around 19 km per liter. This is quite higher compared to petrol-based model of Honda Civic, which gives a mileage of around 15 km per liter.

Condom vending machines and society issues.!!! June 18, 2008

CONDOM VENDING MACHINES are the hottest topic doing the rounds in the country especially among youngsters. The changing trends and the attitude to ape the western world have hyped sexual activity. India has more than five million HIV/AIDS sufferers second only to South Africa but efforts to control the disease stand against the extremely conservative traditions deep rooted in our culture.


Today, lot many youngsters indulge in sex and often led their way to unsafe sex just because, they are shy to ask for condoms from the third person or either the medical shops are way a little far from them. One, has to understand that, if a person mind is made up, he will have sex anyways, only thing we can do is to encourage “safe sex”.! The recent increase in the number of extramarital affairs and having sex with multiple partners has let to the increase in the HIV/AIDS cases only.! How can one afford to take a risk in the heat of the moment and regret it for the rest of his or her life.? It is wiser to use protection than to play the game unarmed.

The concept of condom vending machines is fairly new to India but most of the people are unaware about the machines that are also known as condom ATMs. In Chennai and Hyderabad, condom vending machines have been installed in “public toilets” and a lot of people are happy with them. Its a great idea to help people protect themselves from the HIV pandemic and unwanted pregnancies. Lot of people are taking a step to experience the sex when they r young n stepping into the the era where they r not restricted to old myths and concepts realting to sex. Tough still lot of guys feel shy to go to a medical shop n ask for a condom just because there might be some lady or women, standing on the shop or they r just simply shy and hence lands up in truly unprotected sex leding tthem to many miseries n might be some diseases. This condom vending machine save us the thread of walking up and asking for a condom and help enjoy safe sex.

The controversy swirling around condom vending machines is that their installation is likely to corrupt the youth and damage the ideals of our country. What ideals are being talked about is the question. If one were to have sex with a stranger, would it be wise to use a condom or simply go in for unprotected sex? Can our cherished ideals control thousands of individuals plunging in the act or would condom vending machines help control the HIV/AIDS crisis to an extent?

Some people think that condom vending machines will corrupt the youth and encourage them to experiment with sex on a wider scale. But in our country, everybody is doing it and nobody wants to talk about it. How sane is this attitude? Can we stop people from indulging in the act itself by promoting AIDS awareness among the masses?

“Condom vending machines should be installed in Pubs and nightclubs where a lot of youngsters end up having one-night stands. Many of  today’s generation ended up indulging in unsafe sex because the chemist stores were either shut down or were out of their way. These machines would definitely help people in a big way.”

Condom vending machines are an effort to raise HIV/AIDS awareness. They certainly do not collide with the values of our country. For those who are against the concept, think about the number of lives that might be saved with the effort.
I m truly in support for such an effective measure which can help our nation to overcome or safeguard our forth coming generation from some heavy epidimics like HIV/AIDS. And i feel one must participate too in raising the voice against the political contraversies over this issue, and the moral values for the sake of the coming generation. As we all know the time is changing and one has to change the way  to think n measure on such an important prospective. Its we who can take our nation somewhere ..as we r the one who are called n well known as the “YOUTH” of nation.! if we will lag behind them who wil come forward an talk about this issue.!!!

Endeavor To Attain The Triumph(Success) June 16, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — soveriegn @ 9:09 am
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Success and its attainment has become a very important aspect in one’s personal and as well as social life. In order to make ourself stand in the society, one has to be successful for his well headed future and status. In today’s world, the sight of the people towards oneself often fluctuates with the rate of success of that individual. For every single individual success has its own meaning.

Some define success as Donald Trump and all his wealth. Others define it as the parents who raised a solid family on one meager income. Before you can achieve success yourself, you have to determine what your definition of success is, be it a brilliant career, good health, strong spiritual beliefs, emotional stability, the luxury of time, financial freedom, or a combination of several factors. In order to achieve success on life, one has to be very clear within his mind that what’s the true meaning of success is for him.

Sometimes, in order to achieve our success we often, render to the wrong path. At that point, the success become more important rather than gaining it at a true spirit. If you know you need to restart yourself but feel like you are stuck in a rut, think about your values, your strengths and weaknesses. The answer to these questions will help you on your way to defining success on your own terms.

In order, to achieve success there are few basic n really necessary steps which needs to be evaluated by every single individual before taking his steps to success. These basic things are down here which would help you to attribute to your success and your measures to attain it.

0.… believe. Successful people have faith in their goals, believe in themselves, and visualize the path to success. They step back and reevaluate every now and then to make sure the direction in which they’re headed is the direction they still want to go.

  1. … plan. Successful people determine what kind of success they want and how they see it happening. They admit their weaknesses, find ways to overcome them, improve themselves, and go after their goals
  2. … take action. Nothing on the route to success will change until a move is made to alter it personally. Successful people ask questions and figure out why one method worked or why it did not. They are aware of what is happening on their path.
  3. Always, remember to live for your dreams and work hard for your success, because whenever u will be going for it… there would be someone jealous of it.. and would love to stop you. If u stop urself there itself, then it would be hard to achieve it !!! always believe in now or never.!!!!
