Special Doodle by Google for 101 years of traffic signal August 05, 2015 11:46

When was the first traffic light installed? It was an American policeman named Lester Wire, in Utah, who has first developed an electric traffic light in 1912 and used the red-green lights. The American Traffic Signal Company installed a traffic signal system on the corner of the East 105th Street and Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio two years later,  on 5 August 1914. Google gives the history of traffic light.The first traffic signal consisted of four pairs of red and green lights that served as stop and go indicators and each of them was mounted on a corner post. It was wired to a manually operated switchboard inside a control booth, the system was configured effectively, so that conflicting signals were impossible.Google celebrates the 101st anniversary with the animated doodle which shows cars with the letters spelling 'G-O-O-G-L-E' halting at a red traffic light and then rushing past it, as it turns green. This was not the first time an attempt was made to regulate the traffic, in the 19th century, gas-lit traffic signals were installed in the UK.The doodle is made quite interesting as it shows the old Model T built by Ford in the year 1908 waiting at the traffic signals when the light turns red and buzzing away in a hurry when the light shines green. Google’s doodle shows the traffic light with red and green light, but no orange indicator.The Illustrator for the Google’s Doodle for the traffic light anniversary special is Nate Swinehart. He has designed it sarcastically by including the old Model T built by Ford. Traffic signal lights were a good start for controlling the traffic in a better way. But now as the vehicle population has exploded not traffic control system is able to provide a smooth flow.By Premji

Schizophrenia is one of the most degrading affections, being defined as a long term mental health condition that causes a wide range of psychological symptoms, varying from changes in behaviour through to hallucinations and delusions. The game, "Wizard", is designed to help so-called episodic memory. The scientists examined 22 patients who played the memory game and who made significantly fewer errors and needed significantly fewer attempts to remember the location of different patterns specific tests.They also found to improve their scores on the Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) scale, which doctors use to rate the social, occupational and psychological functioning of adults.“These are promising results and suggest that there may be the potential to use game apps to not only improve a patient’s episodic memory, but also their functioning in activities of daily living”, Peter Jones, another researcher, said in a statement.The study is published in the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B.

OMG!! Baahubali collects Rs.500 crores August 04, 2015 17:59

After 25 days of Baahubali, the film now reaches the huge 500 crores gross. This is really a proud moment of Telugu cinema, as it is our film, which is shaking, even the Bollywood records. As of now, Baahubali dubbed version in Bollywood, crossed 100 crores, which is observed to be unshakeable, even after many new releases. This range of success for a dubbed version is never before seen in the history of Indian cinema. So Baahubali set a new platform and gave a hope for dubbing movies.  Reacting to this, Karan Johar already tweeted that, it is a very proud moment for Dharma productions. Srimanthudu effect on Baahubali Srimanthudu is gearing up for release this week. It is another big film, which is getting released after Baahubali. So the critics are expecting that Baahubali collections might go down, after Srimanthudu conquers the theaters. But the trade analysts predict that, as of now, not only Srimanthudu, no movie can disturb Baahubali storm. It would almost be impossible for any other big movie, to reach Baahubali records in the near future.However, it is not proper to compare the universal subject movie like Baahubali, with Srimatnhudu, which is a local content one.    By Phani

Pakistan’s investigator reveals Pakistan’s role on 26/11 attack August 04, 2015 17:48

Pakistani investigator who has led the probe into the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks has said that the sleuths uncovered a raft of evidence linking the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) to the carnage that was “planned and launched” from the Pakistani soil. Tariq Khosa, said that Pakistan has to deal with the fallout of the attacks and this will require “facing the truth and admitting mistakes”."Pakistan has to deal with the Mumbai mayhem, planned and launched from its soil," Tariq Khosa, a former director general of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), wrote in the Dawn newspaper. "The entire state security apparatus must ensure that the perpetrators and masterminds of the ghastly terror attacks are brought to justice."The training camp near Thatta in Sindh province, where the LeT terrorists were trained and launched by sea was identified and secured by the investigators. The casings of the explosive devices used in Mumbai were recovered from the same training camp and duly matched, Khosa  said. The fishing trawler used by the attackers for hijacking an Indian trawler, in which they sailed to Mumbai, was brought back to a Pakistani harbour, and then painted and concealed. But it was recovered by the investigators and connected to the accused, Khosa wrote in the Dawn newspaper. Ajmal Kasab, the lone attacker captured and subsequently executed in India, after his conviction, was a Pakistani national whose place of residence, initial schooling and his joining a banned militant group was established by investigators, he said. The engine of the dinghy abandoned by the terrorists near the Mumbai harbour “contained a patent number through which the investigators have traced that it is imported from Japan to Lahore and then to a Karachi sports shop from where a LeT-linked militant purchased it along with the dinghy”, he added. The money trail was followed and the accused who bought the engine was arrested. The “ops room” in Karachi, from where the attackers were directed, was identified and secured by investigators. Communications through voice over internet protocol (VoIP) were unearthed, Khosa said. The alleged commander, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and his deputies were identified and arrested and a couple of foreign-based financiers and facilitators were arrested and brought to face trial, he wrote.Khosa acepted that the trial of the seven men charged for the attacks had “lingered on for far too long” and Pakistan must ensure the “perpetrators and masterminds are brought to justice”. He added that “dilatory tactics by the defendants, frequent change of trial judges and assassination of the case prosecutor as well as retracting from original testimony by some key witnesses” all had been the serious setbacks for Pakistani prosecutors.The retired official has said that the Mumbai case was unique and that proving conspiracy in a different jurisdiction is more complex and required a far superior quality of evidence. "Therefore, the legal experts from both sides need to sit together rather than sulk and point fingers." Khosa asked, "Are we as a nation prepared to muster the courage to face uncomfortable truths and combat the demons of militancy that haunt our land?"Now, it is the turn of Pakistan to deny all these allegations and paint the investigator Khosa as an agent of RAW. Pakistan is a rogue state which is a haven to the terrorist. The Pakistan Army and ISI are the host and trainer of the terrorists. The time is now ripe to term Pakistan as a terrorist friendly nation and impose sanctions against the rogue state.By Premji
