Not Jr.NTR, Pawan might be targeted! May 26, 2015 10:25

It seems to be like, Congress party is in that state where, whatever it utters, it is finally remaining as a joker as all their allegations are openly proved to be false.First of all, though the Telangana is announced as a separate state by the Congress government, the state Congress could not make an influence of it as they opposed it. With this, Congress position is almost out of Telangana and on the other side, though their their opposition towards Telangana, they could not gain the hearts of AP, as it is Congress party which bifurcated the states. So, generally as the issue is very serious and not solvable, people are obviously against Congress and thus completely eliminated Congress out of AP.Brief case to father, Suit case to son- Raghuveera Reddy Though, the state Congress officials are silent in the beginning, now they are trying to make an influence by opposing the AP government officials. Recently, Raghuveera Reddy, state congress leader raised few oppositions on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and his son Lokesh. But, finally it was he, who was openly cornered as his allegations are proved to be meaningless. He said that, father needs a brief case and the son needs a suit case, opining that both are concerned about self financial benefits.  Naidu threw away Jr.NTR?Jr. NTR is been used by TDP to the extent and finally threw him away, he further added. This is the logic where it was found as a pure meaningless one. It is to be remembered that, though Jr. NTR had participated in political activities and promoted TDP in the past, the party could not gain the power. But in the recent elections, NTR was nowhere seen and it was Pawan Kalyan who extended his support for TDP. So, it can openly understood that, state Congress is just trying to expose its presence in AP, but there is no meaning in their allegations. As per their logic, if they had substituted Pawan's name in the place of NTR, then there might be at least some or the other meaning for their oppositions, how come Congress leaders had missed this simple logic?By Phani

Is Naidu against of all these districts? May 26, 2015 09:41

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu is more concerned about Godavari districts rather than his own Chittoor district, MP Shiva Prasad said.  On the other side, AP Deputy Chief Minister, KE Krishnamurthy said that, CM gave only 3 seats for Kurnool, it seems to be like he is not at all concerned about the district. It is heard that even Krishnamurthy raised the interest of CM towards West Godavari district.If the above leaders statements are believed to be true, let's estimate that, what might be the reason behind Naidu's special interest towards the Godavari districts. More concerned about Godavari district?Firstly, it to be reminded that, it is from West Godavari district where TDP won a huge amount of seats and it is one of the reasons for TDP to form the government. Frankly speaking, the whole credit cannot be given to this district itself.It is well known that in West Godavari district, among the 15 seats allotted, TDP won all the 15 seats and thus gave no chance for any opposition in that place. If Naidu's reason behind the special interest is because of this reason, then why is Naidu neglecting Ananthapuram district where the party had a good craze even though Rayalaseema is against TDP?Why is Ananthapuram neglected?If party won all 15 seats in West Godavari district, then it won 12 seats out of 14 from Ananthapuram. Though there are many constituencies in both the Telugu states, people in Ananthapuram are more concerned about TDP. The people who are loyal to NTR, proved their loyalty again by choosing his son Balakrishna as their MLA with a bumper majority, though the past experiences people faced from TDP are fruitless.  So, let's hope that Naidu would consider all these facts and be concerned about Ananthapuram too. In fact, it's not only about this district, as a CM of a state, it is his duty to treat all the districts alike without any discrimination. Otherwise, the results would be bitter in future if people get a proper idea of all these issues of TDP.By Phani

More intimacy can increase better navigation skills in men May 25, 2015 18:53

Men evolved better navigation ability than women, according to a recent study. The study was published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior.The researchers proved this by testing and interviewing dozens of members of the Twe and Tjimba tribes in north-west Namibia. The anthropologists showed that men who did better on a spatial task not only travelled farther than other men but also had children with more women. "Navigation ability facilitates traveling longer distances and exploring new environments. The farther you travel, the more likely you are to encounter new mating opportunities," said Layne Vashro, the study's first author and Post-Doctoral Researcher in Anthropology from the University of Utah in the US. "The Twe and Tjimba were good subjects for the study because they travel over distances of 120 miles during a year, navigating on foot in a wide-open natural environment like many of our ancestors," he added.The Twe and Tjimba tribes have open sexual culture and they have lot of affairs with people they are not married to and this is accepted as legal in their culture. “Many men have children by women other than their wives," the authors said.The results showed that men travelled farther than women and to more places than women. Men reported visiting 3.4 unique locations across 30 miles per location on an average in a year, while women reported visiting only two locations across 20 miles, Vashro said. From this study, researchers have found evidence that men evolved better navigation ability than women to engage in increased sexual activities because men with better spatial skills can roam farther and beget children with multiple mates.By Lizitha

If the colleagues are absent, its an opportunity May 25, 2015 18:39

Generally, when the other staff in your office who do the similar work you do is absent, the management asks you to perform their part of the work too along with your work. In those cases, though the work pressure is high, that is the best opportunity to prove yourself.In those times, give your that best work, where the management should feel like that, there is not at all a difference even if the staff is not present. In fact, if there is improvement in the quality of the work you give on that same day, then the management would get an impression on you and that might even be helpful for the growth of your career        by Phani

Humans turn to Cyborgs in next 200 years! May 25, 2015 18:18

Rajinikanth is a human, but acted as a robot in a film. Now, an almost similar opportunity  can knock the doors of all the wealthy human beings. Even they don't prefer it, there is no other go, other than to accept it.Well, getting into the details, few of the intellectuals opined that within next 200 years, all the wealthy humans might turn to cyborgs (half human, half machine), according to the studies they made.Prof. Harari, who has written a landmark book charting the history of humanity, said mankind would evolve to become like gods with the power over death, and be as different from humans of today as we are from chimpanzees.    They further opined that, the cyborg technology would be restricted to the wealthiest in society, widening the gap between rich and poor in society. In the future the rich may be able to live forever while the poor would die out soon.If these studies prove to be true, then the craving for money would be more than now by the people, isn't it?By Phani

Delhi WiFi, limited, Kejriwals another betrayal May 25, 2015 18:10

The AAP government in Delhi is planning to make free WiFi functional in the capital state by February 2016, trying to integrate various transport, power and health services via the internet to make Delhi a smart city. The original poll promises of the AAP was to give free WiFi access, but the new plan is that the service will be given on the basis of limited data usage, and not based on a time limit. Now the Delhieites have to wait and see to hear from Kejriwal that his government is not able to give Free WiFi because of the objections from the Modi government and the nexus between the central government and L G. Kejriwal & Co is well known and experienced to twist anything in their favour through lies and shame other with shoot and scoot tactics.“We will not fix a time but will restrict bandwidth. Internet will be charged on the basis of data usage per day. Once the data limit is exhausted, users can avail the service by paying for extra usage. The system will be reset daily,” parliamentary secretary for this job, Adarsh Shastri, said. "International projects were state-sponsored models but ours is dynamic so the government can get revenue from the services," Shastri said. "At present, Shanghai has the largest model which caters to 4.5 lakh people. But with 50 lakh users, we have large avenues for monetisation. We can also categorise the content being accessed etc, which provides a big scope for targeted advertising," said Shastri."Delhi is spread across 1,463 sqkm area; we will cover markets, parks, metro stations and high density areas. We will cover 60 per cent of Delhi. Residential areas, green belts, farm belts and rural belts will not be covered. As it is a public Wi-FI, it will be available only at public places. An access point (AP) covers a 50sqm area, so multiple APs will be installed in one area," added Shastri.Officials said they will look to ensure a minimum internet speed of 512 kbps and the government is considering fixing the data usage to 50 MB per day. “This will be a first-of-its-kind project to be tested on such a large scale. In Delhi, there are around two crore wireless devices which can access the internet. If at any point, 25-30 per cent people access internet, it means 50 lakh users. We can also categorise the content being accessed, which has a big scope for targeted advertising,” officials said.By Premji

Unnecessary panic over chutes at Mumbai airport May 25, 2015 17:17

5 small parachute-like objects were seen approaching from the southwest direction of the Mumbai airport and moving towards northeast along with the wind. The airfield staff sounded an alert to the air traffic control tower, which in turn asked pilots lined up for take-off and landing to be cautious, since they were crossing the runway of intersection. The aerial objects created a flutter at the Mumbai airport, when two Jet Airways flights were asked to abort take-off and landing.Directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) said that the Indian Meteorological Department's airport bureau in Santacruz might have set off balloons to collect weather data. "The weather balloons travelled from the southwest owing to the current wind pattern. The flight paths match with the location where airport staff spotted the aerial objects," said a senior DGCA official.The chutes were flying across the breadth of the Mumbai Airport in a tight formation for around 6 minutes and are moving against the wind, prompting that they are controlled. The five chutes were clearly seen moving south to north at a time strong winds were blowing from the perpendicular south-westerly direction. Independent assessment of available facts, prima-facie showed that the objects were radio controlled and appeared to be bigger than hobby parachutes and smaller than those used by professional jumpers."These balloons fly at an altitude much higher than the touchdown levels used by scheduled flights. Therefore there are slim chances of them coming in the way of air traffic," said SG Kamble, director of radar, IMD Mumbai airport bureau. Weather balloon flies in a high altitude balloon carrying instruments aloft to send back information on atmospheric pressure, temperature, humidity and wind speed using small, expendable measuring device called a radiosonde."There has been no conclusion yet on the parachutes or their purpose. Nobody has lodged a complaint with us," said deputy commissioner of police Virendra Mishra. Multiple agencies including the ATC, the IAF, the CISF and the Mumbai Police are probing the matter. Since the parachutes were moving towards Juhu, the airport police had informed the Juhu ATC as well. Altogether there is a confusion and unnecessary panic about these objects seen moving in and around the Mumbai airport.By Premji
