Do you know age of a tree planted around you?
As a tree grows, its trunk thickens as new wood is added in the middle of the trunk.
The age of a tree can be judged not only by the thickness and height of a tree but also by the number of circles on the trunk. Each circle indicates roughly a year.
In fact if find any severed tree you will see number of concentric circles in a cross section of trunk growing from the middle outwards. The space between two concentric circles represent annual layer of wood and by counting number of circles themselves the age of a tree can be known.
If you count number of circles in some giant fir trees, it will be many hundreds of years old.
These circles are also known as tree’s rings.
Amazon rainforest is one of the most famous and dense rainforest in the world. It is also dangerous if anyone goes deep into it.
This world’s largest tropical rainforest lies in much of north western Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries. It measures about 5.5 Million sq km.
Discoveries by scientists have been mostly in endangered areas threatened by human activities as confirmed by World Wildlife fund (WWF). It took nearly 2 years for scientists to do this task.
Nearly 381 species were found including 216 plants, 93 fish, 32 amphibians, 19 reptiles, 1 bird and 20 mammals.
Some of the interesting new finds include fire-tailed titi monkey, or Milton’s titi, a white ball acari, a nocturnal river fish, and a ‘honeycomb’ stingray, a freshwater ray.
A Brazilian judge has held an order on proposed mining in the area nearly size of Switzerland which is really applaudable otherwise these discoveries will cease in future and we will lose all natural resources.
Norway will become the first country in the world to be run on electricity and will be known as the first fully electric powered nation.
Electricity outage is very common in India and many other developing countries across the world. It causes difficulties for a common man.
Everything is being automated now a days and electricity is the core foundation or base of this.
But there are some countries where government puts primary focus on energy sector and designs, formulates and implements policies and laws that give priority to electricity.
Electricity is going to be the lifeline of each one of us in the future.
Energi Norge, an industry advisory body in Norway published a 24 points plan for the switch to electricity, including providing free charging for electric cars across the country and tax exemptions for drivers.
A full conversion to electric cars would require considerable effort within the transport industry.
The body suggests that Norway will operate entirely by using clean energy by year 2050.
Hydro power is currently the source of over 96% of the nation’s electricity and there are more than 110,000 electric cars used in the country.
The country’s ministries have recently declared that no vehicle will be run on any fossil fuel after 2025.

Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi.
You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool.
Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your car.
I dreamt of such issue in my dream today morning.
I got married to a slim dusky girl. I had to leave for office and was getting ready when she asked me if I could drop her to office.
I became irritated a bit but not much as we got married recently.
I used to walk a lot in the morning and in the evening. This was a sort of passion for me and had been doing it since childhood.
I did not take car to the office due to parking problems. It can take 10-20 minutes to park the car depending on the traffic.
The office was about 15 minutes walking distance and was good for my digestion. I had my breakfast before leaving for the office and then I gulped down 2 bananas and a cup of tea after settling in the office.
But today I had to go in the car as my newlywed wife had asked with a cute smile.
With the passage of time I will have to make her understand that walking is good for health.
I hope she will understand. Otherwise I will be left with no option but to drive her every day.
Oh my God what should I do?
Suddenly I felt a jolt and everything became blurred and within seconds disappeared.
My wife had shaken me as sun had come out and shining with full smile.
I was relieved as it was only a dream to drive car to the office and not having bananas with tea in the office.
Indians don’t kiss and don’t use cuss words.
But the film “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” has used many such words and is intense with kiss scenes.
The film directed by Kushan Nandy & produced by Kiran Shyam Shroff and Ashmith Kunder has star cast-Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Chitrangada Singh, Tahir Bhasin, Bidita Bag, and Roopa Ganguly.
The movie, filled with humor and romance, is a quirky ride into the life and times of a small time contract killer, Babu, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Generally actress does not take up this issue with CBFC.
But Bengali Actress Bidita Bag has taken CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani after 48 cuts were ordered in the film.
This Bengali lass has put messages on social media including instagram that Indians ladkiyan are very sanskari and do not use abusive language. Is it hypocrite society?
I do not understand when we will grow up?
We listen to Bakchod shows and reality shows including Splitsvilla where these things are common. Why such serials are not banned in India?
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..
If anyone crosses you and leaves a disgusting smell, how you will feel?
Yes, you wear linen and then hang in your wardrobe without washing it leaving smelly air in the surroundings.
Panasonic that has been associated with electronics including TV, camera, Smartphone etc has come with new a product-Hanger.
The system requires a power source and is equipped with a unique cable that is plugged into a wall socket, but the device also includes pack for batteries in case users are without an electrical socket.
This hanger uses a deodorant and has a high voltage charge to create nanoscopic water particles, resulting in greater moisture collection without harming a garment’s fabric.
This deodorant hanger reduces odour intensity within 5 hours and it works well to eliminate the smells of smoke, sweat and grilled meats.
This hanger will be launched in Japan for 20,000 Yen (about USD 180). Its release outside Japan has not been confirmed officially.
A global survey by approx 30,000 people across 100 countries by UK’s Hull City of Culture 2017 during a paper exhibition has found new favourite colour-TEAL which has been admired by people on this planet.
TEAL- new colour was invented by Miss Marss who blended rich blue, grey and green tones that was inspired by colour on the river Tay, in her native town, Dundee, Scotland.
Do you know that Teal is actually a small freshwater member of Duck family whose eyes are surrounded by this colour?
Colours are associated with many things in life including our mood and behavior. This has a direct bearing on our working and may make us a good or a bad human being. This nature has impact on another person’s life in this world.
But nobody can decide whether it is blue or green. It’s you who will decide the intensity of colour whether it is blue or green.
