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

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?

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.

Dubai Is Set to Fly the World’s First Passenger-Carrying Drone

Dubai Is Set to Fly the World’s First Passenger-Carrying Drone

Gone are the days when drones were widely used for counter-terrorism activities or at wars, nowadays, Drones have emerged out as the most innovative mode of transport for people in the middle East. Dubai is set to become the first region to in the world to approve passenger-carrying drone flying over the space. It will be for the first time that drones will be put to such use. Until now, Drones were mainly used for counter-terrorism and surveillance purposes.

In fact, it will work just like a normal airplane for shorter distances. The recent AP report claimed that the Dubai Roads and Transportation Agency is ready to experiment the single-person quadcopter which could be capable of carrying a passenger from one place to another. The Chinese drone-making company 184 Ehang has manufactured the device.

During the last World Government Summit, Dubai government official said this vehicle will be fully capable to fly safely in the open air. Interestingly, it will be for the first time that a drone will carry a passenger inside it. However, some more intricate issues like shared airspace, managing the device’s taking off and landing and whether it will fly automatically or will it have a pilot for passenger’s safety are need to be carefully examined before any final decision is taken.

Many residents of Dubai feel that it will definitely take some time before the dream of Drone-carrying passengers becomes real. The authorities are saying that by July every process would be completed to facilitate the first ever drone air transport.

This quadcopter looks little different than a normal air vehicle. It is egg-shaped having four legs and a mechanized look. The carrying capacity of the vehicle is up to 200 pounds plus a suitcase around 20 kg. Also, the vehicle will have a touch-screen pad that will operate automatically. The battery backup will be around 30-40 minutes and can cover up to 31 miles. The speed of the vehicle is expected to stay somewhere around 60 to 100 mph.

According to the Dubai’s Road and Transportation Agency, “the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority has examined the quadcopter for quality assurance purposes. It will operate through HSPA+ or 4G mobile network to give direction of its movement on sky and where it will move – the ATC will keep a constant tab on the every move of the drone to avert any sort of accident or mishap. This innovative step will give further impetus to Dubai’s dream of driverless vehicles across its streets. Dubai aims to have at least 25 per cent of its passengers commute via driverless vehicles by 2030.

Humans Won’t Survive another 1000 Years on Earth: Stephen Hawking

Humans Won’t Survive another 1000 Years on Earth: Stephen Hawking

Image source: express.co.uk

Celebrated Scientist Stephen Hawking has doubted about the possibility of the human survival on earth in the next 1000 years. In his latest speech at Oxford Union a few months back, Professor Hawking stressed on the importance of life exploration on other planets since the resources of the earth are getting exhausted at an alarming rate. In his own words, the famous physicist said, “I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet.”

Considering the way non-renewable resources are being used up by human beings each passing day, a situation might come in future when all fossil fuel from the earth would get completely depleted. So, whatever Stephen Hawking mentioned in his latest Oxford event should be understood in its proper perspective.

The visionary scientist who wrote in the afterword section of a new book “How to Make a Spaceship: A Band of Renegades, an Epic Race, and the Birth of Private Spaceflight” authored by journalist Julian Guthrie predicted that “I believe that life on earth is at an ever-increasing risk of being wiped out by possible disasters, such as a sudden nuclear war, a genetically engineered virus, or other dangers. I think the human race has no future if it doesn’t go to space.”

Stephen Hawking Gave a Deadline to Human’s Possible Extinction

Stephen Hawking, in fact, stunned the world when he categorically said that humans have just a 1000-year to find a new home in an outer space possibly in the form of a planet or exoplanet. No doubt, Stephen Hawking’s theory also gets more backing from the fact that NASA has already started exploring life in other planets and exoplanets too like the Trappist-1.

During his hour-long speech at the recent Oxford Union in November last year, Stephen Hawking asked scientists to focus more on the possibility of a life there. Hawking has also reservations about the technological innovations including the ultra-sophisticated Artificial Intelligence (AI) mechanics that is crucial to his own communication process. But Hawking suspected that development of full AI could virtually bring an end to human generation.

Hawking felt that earth’s catastrophe would be prompted by human’s urge towards using more earth’s limited resources which could virtually destroy the planet in its totality.

“We face a number of threats to our survival from nuclear war, catastrophic global warming, and genetically engineered viruses. The number is likely to increase in the future, with the development of new technologies, and new ways things can go wrong. Although the chance of a disaster to planet earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time,” Hawking said in November speech at Oxford.

According to Stephen Hawking, the rising threat of AI, climate change and nuclear terrorism is largely looming before the world as a whole in the next century. Hawking gave a deadline of 1000 years for humans to find another planet for survival before earth gets destructed and virtually mass extinction occurs.

NASA Discovers TRAPPIST-1, a System of 7 Earth-Like Exoplanets

NASA Discovers TRAPPIST-1, a System of 7 Earth-Like Exoplanets

In its latest press conference, NASA took the entire world by surprise when the American premier space agency announced the discovery of seven earth-like planets, Trappist-1. It basically represents a system where seven planets almost the size of the planet Earth are located just outside the solar system. These planets are also called Exoplanets.

NASA astronauts have confirmed that these planets are rocky in nature with close proximity to stars. The scientists have discovered TRAPPIST-1 (Transiting Planets and Planetesimals Small Telescope) are red dwarf having cooler atmosphere inside.

The TRAPPIST-1 is a series of 7 earth-sized exoplanets. All seven of the TRAPPIST-1 planetary orbits are closer to their host star. The system is located some 40-light years (235 trillion miles) away from Earth. These 7 planetary bodies are called exoplanets because of their location outside our solar system. TRAPPIST-1 planets are rocky with mountainous terrains. Scientists are now probing if there is a possibility of the presence of water or any other liquid inside TRAPPIST-1.

NASA is now set to launch its new Webb telescope next year, scientists are even more eager to use a specialized instrument for the purpose of detecting the chemical elements like water, oxygen, ozone and other substance from these exoplanets.

“The seven wonders of TRAPPIST-1 are the first Earth-size planets that have been found orbiting this kind of star,” said Michael Gillon, principal investigator at the University of Liege, Belgium.

It is for the first time the scientists have successfully found seven planets having similar structures and characteristics almost similar to earth. Surprisingly, scientists are having firm believe in the existence of water and life in these planets. However, no confirmation has come out as yet.

According to Sarah Ballard, an MIT researcher, “If one of these planets hosts life and the adjacent one doesn’t, why not?” stated Sarah Ballard. Exactly the same goes with Earth and Venus. While, Earth support life, its nearest planet Venus doesn’t.

However, it’s still too early to say whether all these exoplanets would support life. Actually, some of them release off as much UV rays that the Sun does. And this clearly means that it won’t support the life of any form. The temperature at these exoplanets is expected to be somewhere around 0 to 100 degree Celsius.

Amaury Triaud, a scientist at the University of Cambridge said, “We have made a crucial step towards finding life out there. Up to now, I don’t think we have had the right planets to find out. Now we have the right target.”

Interestingly, this discovery made it evident that the Milky Way might be a home to tens of billions of worlds. The invention of Trappist-1 and its further research will shed more light on it which the scientists until now were completely unaware of.

Aadhaar Card number refers to a 12-digit unique number provided to the Indian citizens by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), a central government agency. Apart from adults, now parents can get the Aadhaar number for their children too. However, parents should have a valid birth document of their kid while applying for Aadhaar card.

Parents need to reach any Aadhaar card facilitation centers spread all across India to get their kids enrolled to the nation’s UIADI scheme. A kid has to attain 15-year of age before his parents can apply for his or her Aadhaar Card with biometric details intact. Aadhaar cards for kids can also be issued without biometric details for kids below 15 years of age.

Important Documents for Parents

#1) Parent’s identity card and proof of address are necessary while enrolling their child for an issue of an Aadhaar card.

#2) The birth document of the child such as the birth certificate.

#3) Parents should also present their Aadhaar Cards while enrolling their child for the scheme.

In some rare cases, parents may need to get Aadhar card for their little ones below 5 years. In that case, only the demographic details of the parents of these kids will be sought. Biometric details tend to change frequently after 5 years. So, occasional updates might be required after 10 years.

Advantages of Aadhaar Card for Children

One time registration. The number would stay same for a lifetime.

Parents of kids from 6 months to 5 years can apply for Aadhaar card.

It may require biometric data updation after a few years. Until, the child turns 15.

In current times, Aadhaar card has emerged out as the most important document. It serves both as a POI (Proof of Identity) and even POA (Proof of Address) in some cases.

Everyone is entitled to one Aadhaar Card only irrespective of his or her age or gender.

Applying for an Aadhaar Card for Your Kids: Complete Procedure

1) Log on to UIADI official website. And open the registration link.

2) Fill in the forms carefully furnishing every detail that it asked from you.

Are Zombies Real?

Are Zombies Real?

Image source: newsitems.com

One of the most mysterious urban legends of our time, Zombie has once again started creating a lot of buzz inside the world of science and politics as well. Recently, some of the US’s politicians (most from the Illinois) have cautioned citizens and law enforcement agencies to take their Zombie preparedness ability more seriously.

Last year, the month of October was marked as the “Zombie Preparedness Month.” Reportedly, it is being said that intelligence inputs might have got some inputs that prompted the state authorities to raise awareness of the people about Zombies. The Illinois state assembly put forward a house resolution (HR 0030) that asked people of Illinois to stay well prepared for Zombies; by doing so they can be in a better position to handle nature’s fury and other disasters as well.

The resolution was approved by the house a few days back. The bill also exposed America’s preparedness towards combating nature’s fury. Few states even lack the modus operandi to distribute food, water and medicine supply to affected people during a natural disaster

The debate was actually regarding America’s capacity to fight nature’s wrath but Rep. Steven Anderson, R-Geneva, made the conversation more interesting by raising the question that which type of Zombie to be used for natural disaster preparedness? He argued that Zombies portrayed on “Z Nation” are faster but those on “The Walking Dead” are more organised.

Scientific Evidence to Zombie’s Existence

Believe it or not, Zombies are real! Science is notorious for doing things that we couldn’t even dream of. Dr Wade Davis, a well known scientist, has learned the “art of making Zombie” using mysterious Zombie juice  and toad skin. He learnt the art from a Vodoo practitioner in Haiti.

1) Zombies are created by Vodoo priests belonging to Bizango secret societies.

2) Zombification or creating someone a Zombie is an ultimate form of punishment to a culprit or convict under Bizango societies.

In his book, “Passage of Darkness (1988)”, the scientist claimed to have found the reality of Zombies. He concluded that by putting on toad skin all over the body and consuming a poisonous substance, the person goes insane and stays in an inebriated state for a long time – mostly for life long time.

 What Does a Zombie Do?

They mystery of Zombies has always made people curious. Zombie basically denotes a dead man having an ability to walk in an eerie manner. They suck blood from humans. The English word “Zombie” first came to use in 1819 when the Brazilian poet Robert Southey mentioned the term Zombi in his literary work.

Zombie is largely categorized as a work of fiction with no existence of its own. They eat raw meat of humans and animals. According to the Haitian folklore, whoever commits suicide – never gets salvation. Their souls could neither enter a new human body nor could it escape from the world. They continue to stay in a half-human and half-dead state forever!
