This is more so in the case of children.Their lives are completely ruled by these devices.These devices made our lives easier and more comfortable.They have made the world jump forward with a leap and built up a glittering modern world.

They have also opened innumerable avenues for the growth and knowledge and  have given form to the wild imagination of man.They have indeed ,revolutionized every sphere of life.

Children spend a great deal of time on these gadgets like video games etc.

The parents feel that excessive use of these gadgets will definitely be destructive for the children.They will recline into their into own high tech shell.

There upon it will  become very difficult for parents to bring them out of this world.

Ride to Learn

Horse-Riding may help improve memory,learning and problem solving in children,as  the vibrations produced by the animals activate the kids nervous system,scientists have found.

Researchers have examined the effects of horseback riding  on the performance of children by having them complete simple tests  directly before and after horse riding ,while  measuring the children’s heart rate in response  to movements created by the horses.

The role of Rag-Pickers in saving the Urban environment

Rag-Pickers play a major role in saving the urban environment.None really pays any attention to contribute towards society.They collect the garbage and further segregate it.

This is a major health concern for them as it contains all sorts of germs.Due to their unawareness  and no education ,they are left with nothing but only this to do.The garbage that they collect has fine  glass pieces which many a times  injure them.

But to earn their livelihood,they have to bear all sorts of pains and injuries.They collect the house garbage and segregate the articles that can be recycled and sell them to earn their livelihood.

the remaining is disposed off.Virtually,in absence of rag-pickers,our surroundings will a  dumping ground of garbage. They are the unsung saviours of our environment.

River Pollution

Rivers are the biggest source of fresh water.They are therefore our lifeline for survival.It is really sad to see that most of our rivers are increasingly being polluted because of our negligible and irresponsibility.

Untreated sewage  and waste from industries  are continuously dumped into rivers.Religious ceremonies are also responsible for river pollution.Immersing idols and disposal of garlands and flowers end up in polluting the water.

Similarly,ashes after cremation are also poured into rivers.River pollution can pose a serious  threat to both the environment and  the human health.Continuos river pollution can disrupt the ecological balance and lead to the loss of biodiversity.

River pollution is thus a critical problem and the government must implement necessary steps to mitigate it.

Computer-Important part of our life

Computers are indeispensible for today’s youth.Computers have brought about a revolution in everyone’s life.

What would offices,banks,factories,airports,commercial establishments do if computers failed to function.Well there would be utter confusion all over.

There will be colossal damage in terms of budiness lost,services not provided and oppurtunities forgiven.By learning computer today’s youth has become a part of the Globalised world.

Distances have overnight become a thing of the past.Internet hasbrought about a big revolution as information  is available cheaply or freely at all times at the mere click of a mouse.

E-books enable today’s  youth to have  access  to thousands of books at minimal cost which was something unimaginable in the past.

No doubt computers have brought about a drastic change in youngster’s life.It’s time that those who has missed out learning computers shouls doon take plunge and go in for computer courses to know the vast spectrum of business avenues lying open to them.

Motivation

Motivation is one of the most  discussed topic and the way it helps one to tackle the problems they  are going through.

Talking about motivation is not that easy because it is not easy to talk about based on who you are talking to because something that is motivating to a young child made not be the same for someone who is around 40.

People aspire for the same kind of motivation but everyone has there own source of motivation .

There are also people who are always talking about motivation but are themselves streesed in there own lives.

 

Being pumped and motivated all the time is very important to make things go better throughout ur day and my best piece advice for you can be that you can do much better than you think but the only thing you lack doing is to be patience as you have a lot of time figure out things and execute them.

People get way over excited for things that they are willing to execute but due to bad kick start and lack of motivation they  are no where to reach where they wanted to reach.

“Motivation comes from you not from others who you try to be.”-Me

 

Super -Earth,60 more planets found

Astronomers have found 60 new planets near our own, boosting the chances of finding one that could support life.

A team of International scientists  found  a further 54 potential planets ,meaning that in all the researches might have discovered  a full 114 planets.And at least some of those might be like Earth,and able to support life ,the researchers have said.

The observations were part  of the  Lick-Carnegie Exo-planet Survey,which was started in 1996 by astronomers  Steve  Vogt and Geoffrey Marcy from the University of California and Paul Butler,from  the Carnegie Institute of Science, in washington.

Astronomers released the largest ever compilation of exoplanet detecting observations made using a technique called the radial velocity method.The radial velocity method takes advantage of the fact that the planet’s gravity also affects the star.Astronomers  are able to use sophisticated  tools to detect the tiny wobble the planet induces  as its gravity tugs on the star.

The virtual mountain of data was gathered as a part of a two decade radial velocity planet hunting programme that uses a spectrometer called HIRES,mounted on the 10-metre Keck-I telescope of the WM Keck Observatory atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii.

The compilation includes almost 61000 individual measurements made of more than 1600 stars.By making the data public , the team is offering unprecedented access to one of the best exoplanet searches in the world.

Paralympic Games

The Paralympic Games is a major international multi-sport event involving atheletes with a range of disabilities including impaired muscle power,impaired passive range of movement,limb deficiency,leglength difference,short stature,hypertonia,alaxia,athetosis,vision impairment and intellectual impairment.

The Paralympic has grown from a small gathering of British World War-II veterans in 1948 to one of the largest international sporting events by the early  21st century.

There are 22 sports on the summer paralympics program and 5 sports ont the winter paralympics program.These games are conducted every four years just as the Olympics.

In 2001 the International  Olympics commitee signed  an agreement which guaranteed that host cities would be contracted to manage both the games.

During recent RIO Paralympics four Indian atheletes Devendra JhaJharia,MAriyappan Thangavelu ,Deepa Malik and Varun Singh Bhati won the Gold Medal in Men’s Javelin throw,gold in Men’s high jump ,silver in woman’s shot put and Bronze in Men’s high jump respectively

 

River Ganga

Ganga is not only a river but it is the soul of Indian culture and is considered as Goddess.The river originates at Gangotri glacier on the southern slopes of the Himalayas ,some 14,000 feet above the sea level.

River Ganga is about 157 miles long(2506 km).

 

The headwaters of the Ganges comprise many small streams of which the six longest and their five confluences are considered scared.

The six headstreams are Alaknanda,Dhauliganga,Nandakini,Pindar,Mandakini, andBhagirathi.

 

The river is home for more than 140 different species of fish and 90 different species of amphibians,many of which are near extinction today . Ganga is also the home for fresh water dolphins and Ganges sharks,both of which are endangered species with Ganges shark being critically endangered.

The mouth of River Ganga forms a vast Sunderban delta,which is the largest Delta in the world.The Ganga water has self cleaning properties due to the presence of bacteriophage virus.
