Formula 1 cars more safe with Halo device

Formula 1 race going racy on race circuit and everyone is eagerly waiting as to who will race faster to finish first. Suddenly 2 cars come closer about to touch.

In next 2 seconds the cars collide and are turned upside down and the driver of one car dies.

This has been the case in many races across the world every year.

Motor federation has come with a new device “Halo” which is extra protection on the helmets worn by car racers.

The device was tested for the first time in 2016 and will be introduced in all Formula 1 car races from 2018.

This device is designed to give extra cockpit protection to limit head injuries. This forms a semi circular barrier around the driver’s head to avoid attracting flying debris without completely closing the cockpit.

Many drivers were divided on this with Lewis Hamilton openly opposing this device.

Let’s hope the drivers should feel a bit more safe now..

Why Jack Daniel will die in Europe

Jack Daniel may soon die in Europe especially in European Union (EU) if US President Donald Trump goes his way.

Trump is planning to tax steel import from EU which will be a detriment to the EU business community. In retaliation EU will impose heavy tariffs on import of many things like orange juice, dairy and- in what would be a blow to lovers of Jack Daniel and other distilleries and breweries preparing Bourbon and will result in annoyance in US business sector as confirmed by EU president Jean Claude Juncker on the sidelines of G20 meeting in Hamburg, Germany. Juncker has clearly stated that any action taken by US on import from EU will be counter attacked by EU within 48 hours and it will not take 2 months to take action.

EU is one of the largest markets of Bourbon where Jack Daniel is known to many people as an “On the Rocks” drinks and is a great pleasure and is also used as wine and women blend.

Trump is leading US in a businesslike manner and not as a matured politician where the politician has to keep a very degree of patience.

Let’s see what lies ahead for Bourbon companies?

People on both sides of US and Canada borders turned their necks to catch a glimpse of this.

Erendira said “it was beautiful and amazing” after landing on the ground.

People have been performing these dare devils acts and there are few people who waste their time by involving themselves in casteism or favouring goons politicians.

 

Why diseases should be named carefully

Disease names can have consequences. Yes this is true.

Government agencies generally do not pay attention whenever disease is named. This is not only in India but is prevalent in other countries also.

Swine flu has nothing to do with pigs but pigs were slaughtered in some countries at the time of spread of Swine Flu. In 2009 Egypt ordered killing of 300,000 pigs to stop its spread.

Spanish flu did not originate from Spain. Many organizations working on Spanish flu brought Spain to limelight claiming it to be the source of this disease and hence Spain could not censor reports and figures on this disease though some of the countries censored this.

HIV was first called “gay related immune deficiency” or GRID leading heterosexuals to underestimate the risk of unprotected sex.

What happens inside quietest place on Earth

Do you know which the quietiest place on Earth is?

It is Microsoft office in Redmond headquarters in USA. To be precise Anechoic chamber is the exact place at -20.6 dB.

There are six concrete rooms within rooms that enclose the chamber and can reduce the noise of a jet taking off to a whisper.

Literal meaning of Anechoic is echo free.

Year 2015 saw the world record of -9.4dB in Orfield Laboratories in Minneapolis.

 

Let’s walk through sounds heard at different decibels (dB) which is a measurement unit of sound.

10 dB is the sound of normal breathing.

0 dB is the lowest limit of sound that a human ear can hear.

Negative dB is the sound that a human ear cannot hear.

-24 dB is the noise produced by colliding air molecules and this quietness is outside vacuum.

-20.6 dB is the sound limit inside the Anechoic chamber. The room is so quiet that you can hear your blood flow.

 

 

Sudden change in colour of Bosphorus strait connnecting Europe & Asia

Have you heard of Bosphorus Strait?

This strait connects continents of Asia and Europe in Istanbul, capital of Turkey.

People noticed this change as the colour of strait was bluish earlier and changed to milky turquoise this week.

This sudden change has been attributed by scientists to increasing level of pollution in the sea and surge in a species of plankton across the Black Sea.

Other reasons cited are earthquake in the region on 12th Jun 2017 afternoon and surge in micro organism Emiliania huxleyi popularly known as Ehux.

If this continues, it may endanger species of fish and other animals living in the sea in this area and may result in decline in tourism and protests by environmentalists.

 

Love of old couple-Recoiled

It was June. Summer was at its peak.

Dharampal was sleeping with his grandchildren on either side. Sleeping on the floor with bed sheets spread evenly on the floor was his favourite and he did not like sleeping on bed. This was in the genes of his grandchildren also.

He saw Shraboni entering room of his son with sari border covering her head. She almost ran inside the room and locked the room from inside.

Dharampal heard some noise and then lost in the thoughts of Kanta.

Dharampal and Kanta used to go on the roof where Dharampal would smoke hookah and Kanta would prepare Lassi for him. Dharma would bring Chole Kulche for his wife and Kanta would eat it.

Everyday Kanta would do the same thing and Dharampal would be happy. Both then lie down and see the stars and talk to one another before going to sleep. Both were aged and would tell stories of brave and humorous acts done in their young days.

Kanta had full trust in Dharmapaji. Kanta would say Dharmapaji, you are a great man. I know you never had affair with any girl except me.

Kailash along with his family had gone out in summer holidays at his in laws house for about a week.

Kailash along with his family returned from his in-laws house in the morning in the last week of June.

He immediately left for his shop so that he could see if everything was in order in the departmental store. The departmental store was a big one and almost everything was available in the store.

He looked at his watch. It was 6.00 in the evening and this was the time when he would be on his way from departmental store to his home.

Kailash reached home at 6.45.

There was no one in the house. Generally there used to be noise in the evening. Children would cry, they would snatch one another’s things or Kanta would shout at them whenever one would slap another sibling.

He felt uneasy and started calling each member.

Shraboni where are you? Shyam where are you?

No answer.

Geeta where have you gone? Maji, Pitaji where are you?

Still no answer.

He went upstairs and reached the roof.  He was shocked to see everyone weeping. He asked everyone but no one replied.

He saw Kanta and kept on staring her. He regained consciousness soon and said Maji what happened to you?

She was lying there with no body movement.

Pitaji was crying. He said I never told a lie to Kanta. Today only I thought of pulling her leg.

He began.

It was afternoon and sun was setting. I started laughing and asked for a glass of water from Kanta.

She asked what happened Dharama.

Dharma said “nothing much dear”. You remember Sumitra. The beautiful woman in her early twenties with dove eyes and silky black long hair and perfect figure. She was no match with any woman at that time.

Expressions on Kanta’s face changed and she became somewhat furious.

Her tone changed and said now I understand why you would go late in the evening everyday and would be happy with shine in the eyes when you would return. So you were with her all those evenings and made me a fool.

He came near her and held her hands. He could not believe. Kanta’s body was very hot and was almost boiling.

Kanta loved her husband very much and they never had any disagreement throughout their lives. He was worried. He started cursing himself. He should not have said this to his wife, even if this was true. He should have thought about this earlier.

Kanta’s  face twisted after listening his story of young days. After few minutes she almost became still.

Dharma took water from the jug and sprinkled it over her face. She moved a bit and then suddenly her face dropped down with her back supporting on the leg of Dharma. His both hands were trying to shake her body.

But it was very late.

He recoiled and said you cannot leave me like this. We have been together all these years both in joys and sorrows of life. I just wanted to enjoy and hence told you the story of Sumitra. You should have at least listened to other part of the story.

They were on the same spot where they had slept together last time.

Dharma threw the glass of water on the floor and shouted you old lady I will not cremate you.
