When it comes to online harassment of women, social media tops the chart. Be it Asia, Europe or anywhere else, the effect of lopsided patriarchal society and mindsets is making the world more uneven than before. While talking about cyber crimes, women suffer the most. Women are stalked and thrashed on social media for reasons best known to trollers themselves quite frequently.

Posting one’s views or expressing one’s opinion on social media is one’s fundamental rights but the way women face backlash for doing so is something that we should collectively ponder over. We have to remove this “online harassment” menace from our civilised world.

#5) Never Reveal Your Real Home Address

Well, posting your home address on social media is something that should be seriously avoided at all costs. However, you can always reveal your Post Box number or office address online for communication purposes wherever necessary.

#4) Treat All Incoming Calls with Caution

Obviously, not all incoming calls are necessary. You must figure out the relevance of the call first without receiving it. Especially, you should exert more caution if you receive a call in your personal mobile number from an unknown location and caller id.

#3) Never Disclose Confidential Details

Be it your bank account number, credit or debit card, or even Social Security Number – don’t disclose these details to anyone over social media. Online harasser or Cyber criminals may harass and harm you severely by physically, monetarily and mentally once they get these details.

#2) Protect Your Systems and Devices

Periodically, we should gauge the anti-virus effectiveness of our devices. Especially, for business women, virus in the personal and office system is a strict no-no as it may lead a hacker to infect your system and get back all crucial and sensitive data stored in the system. Always use quality and full proof anti-virus software round the clock in your devices.

#1) All Followers are Not Well-Wishers

Many social media users forget that not all followers are their well-wishers. Some of them could be criminals too – stalking you with a criminal intent. Trollers on social media sites like twitter and facebook have peculiar mentality; they stalk you to post threatening like rape/murder/Threat online to intimidate you for a reason or not.

Even though many of them get caught by the law enforcement agencies, a lot of them run away using fake IP addresses. So, self-care is the best remedy in such a situation. Without waiting for the cops to react – use your social media safely. Keeping your social media accounts in a private mode is a good option to know who you approve as your followers on receiving their requests.

Women Shouldn’t Fear Online Bullying

Never let online trollers dictate terms. You don’t need to fear and shutting out all your social media accounts. By doing so, they will become stronger in their nefarious intent and then go to harass another woman.

So, you have to use your social media accounts in a cautioned way without restricting your normal followers either. If you notice any suspicious activity or absurd comment hurled at you with a negative motive, then you should immediately block that person. Repeat it wherever necessary. It is the first line of defense against Cyber-bullying that women frequently face online these days.

As per its nomenclature, “social media” is something that is intertwined with the concept of social and society. These days, social media has evolved out as the best way to meet new people, socialise and share thoughts. However, just as everything has its negative effects – similarly social media has side effects too. Many people actually use it as a tool to harass others by way of cyberbullying which is inherently antisocial, wrong, often illegal and immoral as well.

There are some basic etiquette that every social media user must either follow or don’t use social media. Social networking sites basically serve the purpose of lending helping hand to people. But often the reverse happens. It turns out to be a place where people vent out their anger and go away anonymously. However, due to massive rise cyber crime cases across the globe, police are now more active towards nabbing these cyber criminals.

Top 5 Things You Should Never Post On Social Media

Illegal Activity: Intent is everything. If your intent is to do something suspicious or you wish to indulge in illegal activity then please stay away from social media and surrender yourself before the cops by confessing your nefarious future plan. Then the court and cops will guide you further according to the merit of the case. No, social media is strictly no-no for anti-social and anti-human like you.

Get away from this platform and don’t defame it. What constitutes illegal can vary according to the country you reside in but certain social media rules are universal;

You should not share something that creates mutual hatred among people.

You can’t share a live crime scene without informing the law enforcement agencies about the same.

You can’t go on abusing people on social media for any reason whatsoever.

You shouldn’t insult any religion or try to incite people by hurting things of their faiths and beliefs.

You shouldn’t stalk a certain man or woman in an unfriendly or scary manner especially when he or she doesn’t like it.

Maintain Courtesy: Even if you are annoyed at somebody. Don’t need to show it on social media; keep it personal. Everyone has a problem with something and somebody but that doesn’t mean you should post everything on social media without trying to resolve the same from your end.

Confidential Details: Don’t share your banking details and debit/ credit card information on social media for fun ever. It can be problematic for you and your family. Internet hackers wait for such things so that they can then use their tricks to siphon off money from your bank account without your knowledge. Always remember your bank balances are just digits on computers.

Social Checks Ins: In recent times, social check ins option are there in facebook to let people know in which theatre or restaurant you are going in. It is not right to share your social check ins especially when you are alone or far away from your home location. You don’t know who among your followers and fans might be predators in the disguise of a social media user waiting to harm you.

Use social media responsible. Be safe and raise awareness of the people too about this sensitive matter by sharing this article now.

Figure 1Six Strategies for Indian Retailers to enhance their Profitability

  1. Customers are king

The first critical step towards enhanced profitability in retail begins with addressing the needs of consumers. Since consumers vary by region, state and street, it becomes critical to understand local market dynamics and accordingly arrange product assortments in an online or offline store, so that their diverse needs are met. It may be a good idea to hire a chief consumer officer whose job is to continuously understand and address the needs of customers.

  1. Unique value proposition

In a highly competitive market segment, it makes sense to position your brand with a differentiated value offering. Retailers that design a unique value proposition which sets them apart from the competition multiply their chances of survival in the fierce competition. In order to develop a consumer centric value proposition, it is logical to analyse customer feedback about your brand, and then devise strategies to serve them better. Innovative ideas should form the basis of your value proposition strategies.

  1. Customer experience matters

Retailers need to merge online shopping experiences with offline in store experiences so that each customer touch point is attractive. Some of the key strategies for a seamless customer shopping experience include effective inventory management, an integrated sales and operations planning process, multi-modal transportation networks, and training of staff for various management activities.

  1. Let data decide for you

Retailers need to harness the power of data analytics to take critical business decisions. Digital analytics provide useful insights to retailers for marketing, supply chain management and customer experience. Knowing who your customers are, what they need, and how the entire retail chain works makes you a smarter player. Remember, analytics is not a one-time feature. It needs to be continuously explored for customer preferences that keep changing with time.

  1. Invest in technology

An intelligent retailer understands that the only way to stay ahead of the competition is to keep investing in new technology. It is good to take bold risks, but one should always have a back-up plan ready for an unforeseen failure. It is understood that technology has a small shelf life, but continuous contact with customers is expected to me more effective than blanket marketing.

  1. Protect your reputation

When you run a business in a digitally charged environment, you are also exposed to potential risks of such technology. Be it social media or potential website hacks, you need to be vigilant about your digital assets.

These powerful strategies can definitely change the game for your company in a highly competitive retail sector in India.

Elon Musk Is Set to Merge Human Brains with AI in Neuralink Project

Elon Musk Is Set to Merge Human Brains with AI in Neuralink Project

Image source: financial express

Hold your breath and believe the impossible. Business baron Elon Musk launched Neuralink his latest venture that aims to merge the human brain with Artificial Intelligence (AI). It is certain now that the exploration of the possibility of merging computers with human brain like a brain-computer interface has already begun.

The company will pursue “neural lace” scientific innovation process that implants tiniest electrodes in human brains so that uploading and downloading of human thoughts could be easily done!

No, it is not a science fiction. The detailed report of the same was published a few days back confirming it. If Neuralink project becomes successful then it is expected to improve the memory and concentration level of the people using it through Artificial Intelligence.

Neuralink Is Thinking Ahead of Its TIme

Currently, Elon Musk is also spearheading some other ambitious scientific projects like SpaceX and Tesla. A few days back, he stated “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence. It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output,” when a journalist asked Elon Musk about the Neuralink project.

Electrode arrays are already used to treat neurological disorder and imbalances like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer and epilepsy among other diseases affecting the working of human brains in one way or other. Neuralink has now joined hands with the Kernel, a renowned biotechnology firm to give a massive impetus to their research.

Kernel has been at the front foot of medical research on human brains with new surgery techniques and innovations for the last few years together. “We know if we put a chip in the brain and release electrical signals, that we can ameliorate symptoms of Parkinson’s,” the Kernel official stated last year. “This has been done for spinal cord pain, obesity, anorexia… what hasn’t been done is the reading and writing of neural code, he added further while also confirming the news that Neauralink and Kernel are working together on this research.

So Close Yet So Far…..

  • Researchers have to find a safer way to implant electrodes inside human brains.
  • Electrodes must keep the person’s mental balance stable.
  • Not possible for any science to find out what does each neuron thinking at a particular point of time. It is impossible to decide if the neurons in the brain are asking a person to read or play!
  • Inserting any alien things inside human brains is risky. It is not like a heart where pacemaker can be inserted if required.
  • A normal person would avoid getting his skull opened, only the adventurous mind people and his family members will give their nod to undergo this type of operation where a chip will be inserted to connect AI to human brain.

Some neuro scientists claim that still very limited research has been done until now to understand how the neurons work inside human brains for communication purposes. So, Neuralink will be a difficult aim to accomplish.

Neuralink, the California-based neuroscience Company, is still in its nascent stage but making a rapid advancement in medical science. The Company is now all set to develop cranial systems to treat serious brain diseases while also working a way to attach AI to a human brain. If Neuralink receives government approval then it could be a path breaking leap into the advanced neurological science.

Depression refers to a psychological state of mind when a person sees everything in a gloomy and pessimistic manner. Also, a depressed person often goes to shell and feels tired and fatigue throughout the day. There are several anti-depressant medicines and other remedies in the form of lifestyle changes, but nothing works better than a daily dose of your work out sessions.

The recent Research claims that when a person is more active – he feels more excited and enthusiastic than less-active people. Definitely, exercise helps people come out of their negative thoughts and frustrations while helping them behaving more positively than ever.

According to David Muzina, the MD of Cleveland Clinic Center for Mood Disorders Treatment and Research, “Exercise stimulates the release of many of the brain chemicals thought to be in low supply when someone is battling depression”.

Around 30-minute of daily exercise is a good idea to inculcate in your daily life. Aerobic and cardio exercises alongside yoga should be practiced to fight back depression. When we exercise or work out, certain chemical “Endorphins” are released from human body. Endorphins are released by our brains that could alleviate our pains and make us feel relaxed and happy.

Top 6 Symptoms Of Suffering From Depressions

  • You lack interest in things that you love and feel helplessness.
  • Irritation and frustrated behavior.
  • Feeling loneliness.
  • Insomnia and lack of sleep in night.
  • Lack of appetite or over eating.
  • Unable to concentrate.

Exercise Tips for Depression Patients

  • If you are suffering from frequents bouts of depression and negative thoughts, engage in the activity you love. It can be walking, gardening and meditating too.
  • You should choose an exercise that you find easier to do.
  • Every exercise session should be full of fun. It must not be something that makes you feel tired afterwards.
  • Your exercise session should be regular and frequent. Breaks from exercise are not recommended for people suffering from depression as negative thoughts may again resurface before them.
  • You should try a variety of exercises. It must not be monotonous and painful.
  • Aerobic exercise is extremely beneficial as it improves blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
  • In the latest study, it was found that active and busy people reported fewer indications of depression than people with a sedentary lifestyle. On an estimate, a person who exercises regularly cuts his or her risk of falling into the vicious trap of depression by around 20 percent.

And the Conclusion…….

Over 11,000 people have been observed in the last few decades to analyse the relationship between depression and exercises. Eventually, they came out with the conclusion that exercise could be a sure-shot remedy to counter depression. By indulging in various exercises, a person is able to grow new neurons in the brain. This is significant because neurons maintain the propensity of a person’s mood.

Top 9 Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso) Teachings You Must Know

Top 9 Dalai Lama (Tenzin Gyatso) Teachings You Must Know

Image source: charity-matters

Dalai Lama is a well known figure in the world of politics and spirituality. He was conferred with Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 for his relentless struggle against China to bring autonomous regime in Tibet while making it an independent state. Time and again, he also preached for peace all across the globe

Apart from his well known political campaign against China on grounds of human rights violation in Tibet, his Holiness Dalai Lama is also widely regarded for his inspirational quotes, speeches and teachings. He presented an ideal way to live peacefully in the world while disseminating the message of peace, love and harmony all around.

#1) “We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves”.

The above quote amply reflects the need to calm our mind, body and soul first before we strive towards making world a better place to live in.

#2) “This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”

The day people learn the real meaning of kindness, world will definitely become more peaceful. However, we need to make our brains receptive enough to grasp the positive aspect of life teachings. People shouldn’t fight over religions but realize the real meaning of it.

#3) “The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

Happiness is the way of life. We should chase happiness first – everything else comes later.

#4) “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive”.

Humanity can’t survive sans compassion and love. They are necessary for a happy living. Humanity is in fact all about love and compassion. We must treat everyone around us with full respect and affection.

#5) “If you can, help others; if you cannot do that, at least do not harm them.”

God has given you a beautiful life to serve the mankind with the language of love, hope and compassion. You shouldn’t misuse it by using your energy towards anything that could eventually harm others. Follow the righteous path as always.

#6) “We are the controller of the technology. If we become a slave of technology, then that’s not good.”

Of course, technology is meant to help mankind. It is not something that should create more gaps within the humans. We should be able to use technology for positive purposes we must not become its slave.

#7) “Anger is the ultimate destroyer of your own peace of mind”.

Anger is the worst form of human emotion. Every time a person loses his temper he ceases to behave normal. People should combat every challenge in calm and intellectual manner without letting the feeling of anger affects him.

#8) “People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”

In the current days, when everything is measured in either my or highway dictum – this beautiful quote from his Holiness Dalai Lama XIV acts as a whiff of fresh air. Yes, people may choose different path to choose happiness but that doesn’t mean they are all lost. We shouldn’t judge others without understanding their Karma and purpose of doing anything.

#9) “The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness”.

Finally, if you wish to be a good human being then you should also have to appreciate the goodness around us. Goodness begets goodness and leads to well fare of the masses. Unless we appreciate the good deeds of the others, negative and pessimistic elements will keep our mind preoccupied and we won’t be able to do good things in our lives.

Chinese Dog Eating Festival – Delight or Plight

Chinese Dog Eating Festival - Delight or Plight

Image source: Youtube

The infamous Chinese Dog eating fest, popularly Known as Yulin dog festival, happens every year in Yulin city of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China in summer. We are now exactly a week away from that horrible fiesta that no rational person in the world can support. As per the estimate, around 10,000–15,000 dogs are killed or burnt alive every year at Yulin before they find their way into the people’s plates.

More shocking is the participation of the common people in this cruelest blood-thirsty carnival leading to the brutal killing of so many dogs just to satiate the taste buds of some “sadistic” and “reckless” people. The festival runs for 10 days – lives of a thousand of dogs and puppies get destroyed in the cruelest manner. They are burnt alive and heated iron rods are inserted into their bodies.

Dogs are kept in iron cage for days without water and food in an unhygienic condition during their shipment to Yulin days ahead of the festival. These helpless creatures couldn’t even breathe properly at these wired cages. They feel suffocated and suffer from respiratory problems. But nobody is there to listen to their plight. Lots of dogs have already reached Yulin by now, and are counting their last few days on earth.

On reaching Yulin, these dogs are immediately sold to restaurants and private cooks. From health perspective, Dog meat has no nutritious value. They could badly affect the immune system of a human body. According to some local Yulin dog eaters, “dog meat tastes weird. Since it is a 400-year-old tradition, they don’t want to stop it.

Why Yulin Dog Eating Festival Is Inherently Wrong?

Though Chinese government neither approves nor disapproves the event, but Yulin Festival 2017 is bringing more shame to the nation. Last year, under immense pressure from the global animal rights organization, Yulin dog eating festival was eventually stopped.

Dog meat eating festival in Yulin is no delight. It leads to massive animal suffering, risking human health and tarnish the China’s global reputation as an animal-friendly nation. It breaches China’s food safety laws while promoting illegal killing and kidnapping of dogs roaming on the streets.

Barbaric, Savage, Cruelty and a heinous Crime! Nothing more could define this horrific Yulin festival. However, not all Chinese people support Yulin festival. It is only a handful of them who find pleasure by murdering dogs.

In one of its recent surveys, conducted by Chinese state-affiliated website, 3000 people participated on this online poll, and around 64% of the respondents urged for a complete ban on consuming dog meat in China while 24% of the people opposed the ban.

Shame on Being Human

A dog’s longevity is around 10% of humans. While humans can easily survive up to 80 or 90 in good health and still yearns to live more, an average dog’s life stays somewhere around 10 to 12. Yet people snatch away their lives abruptly in the veil of a tradition.

It was only in the last decade that mass killing of dogs began in such a horrible manner. Even Chinese government and Yulin state officials have separated themselves from the event citing it a festival observed by a very few businessmen and local people.

What these cruel people forget that a dog is a God’s creation. Taking their lives abruptly is indeed inhuman, unethical, cruel and immoral. How does human get the right to burn them alive and cook them? Who gave these criminal rights to them? Dogs never eat humans – they may bite which could be cured with antibiotics and vaccination. But once a dog is killed – a precious life is already lost. It can’t come back ever. It is shame to be a human as long as these cruelties to animals continue to prevail in the world.

Bees Are Super Intelligent & Learn Tasks from Other Bees!

Bees Are Super Intelligent to Learn Tasks from Other Bees!

Bees might have little brains, but that are capable enough to do lots of things. They are far more intelligent than what humans assumed them to be. The latest research conducted at Queen Mary University, London, showed that Bees are quick learners and learn from the things around the environment. Then they disseminate the message within other bees too.

According to Loukola, one of the researchers on the subject, “I think the most important result in our case was that bumblebees can not just copy others but they can improve upon what they are learning. This is of course amazing for small-brained insects — even for us, it’s difficult to improve on something when we are copying others, she added.”

The experiment conducted by the scientists was to judge whether bees would be able to move a yellow ball into the center of a platform or not. Surprisingly they did. Bees saw the ball move, and then they tried doing the same. Scientists used magnets and sugar water (reward) while carrying out this experiment. When Bees saw that some sort of reward was there, they successfully completed the assignment.

Some Amazing Things about Bee Brains that We Don’t Know

Bumblebees pollinate nearly one-third of the total food crops of the world.

Despite being a smaller in size, a bumblebee’s brain is a lot denser than other mammals and humans.

Bees have an outstanding ability to smell and see things correctly using their sensory system in brains.

They have good memory and an ability to recognize various colors too.

A bee brain can calculate around 9 trillion plus things in a second which is far more than a computer that can count only 15 billion computations in a second.

What Does This Research Prove

Satisfied with the result, Reese Halter, a conservation biologist explained, “Bees are highly intelligent creatures. They use their neurons in their brain as efficiently as any other animal on the globe. There’s little under a million neurons in a bee brain, which is approximately the number of neurons in one human retina.” However, Halter explained the same as an outsider – he wasn’t involved in the real research.

Bees communicate with each other through jostling, head-butting and dancing. An experiment conducted a few years back in 2009 confirmed the fact that bees are quite intelligent to trace out real flowers from the artificial ones. Earlier, scientists believed in the concept that big brains work better, but the latest research on bumble bee confirmed that even tiniest brains can work more intelligently than humans and other living beings.

Are You Ready for Your First Ride On a Flying Car?

Are You Ready for Your First Ride On a Flying Car?

Image source: aeromobil

Automobile technology is flourishing all around. Now we have reached a time when even flying cars on sky seems so real which looked absolutely impossible even a few years back. Hold your breath and nerves as within the next few days from now onwards, you might be actually notice a car flying up above the sky.

There was a time when engineers looked into the possible ways of transportation underground. This led to the discovery of underground metro-rail, and now people are looking at the sky to find some easy ways to commute from one place to another for a short distance that airplane doesn’t cover. Mostly, streets are full with people and traffic problems, so a flying car is definitely the best bet for short distance during office hours.

According to Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus (EADSY), the company is seriously looking at air transportation vehicles option that can be used or hailed with an app. In fact, Airbus is seriously planning to launch its proposed flying cars in the near future. And mind you, when self driving car is possible then flying cars with passengers will also become a reality sometime too soon.

Flying Cars: Technological Merits and Disadvantages

Airbus gave the name Pop.Up to its car flying platform. Reportedly, it is a passenger compartment that is fixed to its four-wheeled autonomous car. The company has also claimed that by the end of 2020, flying cars will be on full swing carrying passengers from one place to another almost everywhere. The biggest advantage of the car is its ability to run on the ground and fly over the head too.

However, whether the vehicle will get a legal sanction from the ATC (Air traffic Controller) to fly over the sky or not is a question that is still pondering in the mind of the people who are mesmerized by its innovation and technology. Nevertheless, the authority is also seriously contemplating about the future roadmap of flying cars.

The major problem that is looming over the prospect of a flying car is its need to accommodate all the parts and technology that can make it fly and run on the ground. The vehicle will actually move as per the direction given to it by the AI (Artificial Intelligence) integrated into its system.

How to Book a Flying Car

People can book a Pop.Up vehicle using the app available on their smartphones. The app will itself then certify whether a ground or air travel will be the best option for the passenger considering the route, distance, traffic and expenses. It is highly anticipated that such vehicles will work with the batteries having a huge capacity.

“Successfully designing and implementing solutions that will work both in the air and on the ground requires a joint reflection on the part of both aerospace and automotive sectors, alongside collaboration with local government bodies for infrastructure and regulatory frameworks,” an Airbus Official stated.
