Act Now or Never

first_imgIts now or never…When we have to achieve something in life to pertain our dream in real life then we have to act accordingly. By every means we think of making something more thoughtful in nature which illuminate unique identity. So for getting things to happen in right way we have to prepare base of our idea later projection of its execution. Projected & Planned process always make motive more achievable. But what when nothing is planned but execution is left with no choice but to get implemented?? It sounds disturbing but if such situation arise our capability & sensiblity can only help us to get it done as expected to be morally. Here we are left with no retrospective action as this situation is like ‘I have never did this ever before’. Intelligence decides it how do we inculcate bringing out best results with no escape choice available.All this idea/thought are very relative to our survival as well. Because as we see in Man vs. Wild if Bear grills won’t use his intelligence to get out of deserted web he cannot accumulate a courage to envision his life back. Collective ideas & retrospective experiences helps him to take most worthy decision during trouble getting caught in between life nowhere.If we do not act at moment we will be spending all our life being stuck with dormant hope & efforts.Earlier a century back many pandemics have caused deaths of people worldwide as there were no skilled & developed medical infra available. For betterment of people inventions have been made which is helping us now to cure ourselves during such pandemics. Influenza,Spanish flu,Asian flu,Third cholera,Flu pandemic has killed millions of people worldwide where no one was prepared for it. Confrontation towards death was unwillingly happened with millions but still is does not end. So far so near our technology & medical expertise has developed but till time no specific efforts towards rescue plan is being made by any country. Survival plan towards rescuing against such pandemics & make availability of food & basic needs has to be made considering as most vital factor for citizens of country.Different nations has different lifestyle & practices towards consuming every available sources available naturally differs. These different lifestyle diversifying food & hygiene of every country nature. Such outbreak of pandemics occurs due to violation against nature principles. Consequences also have to be faced after such unexpected pandemic crises. This affects trade,economy & transportation of nation which pulls stability of nation back by his reduction in production, consumption & spending capacity of citizens. Enthralling tragic experience to the loss of life,sources & financial stability of nation completely break hopes of everyone. This get booked in history but what’s changing out of it matters, are these experiences being obeyed as preventive measure to protect nation by all means..!! If not then we are inviting our fraternity of epidemics & pandemics in future which may not be so far but soon destined then end of life.Covid-19 is killing life as bonfire of collective fatalities back to back worldwide. Every kind known personalities around countries are coming forwards & splashing helps financially to government. Treatment under Govt. packages are implemented in India under Pradhan Mantri Arogya Yojana(PMJAY) where people around countries are allowed to put their wilfull financial donation so it could help in treating patient suffering with noval corona virus epidemic. Such packages should always exist which will help in prevention of life during such health crises. We being a citizen also levy with responsibility to encompass the safety measures declared by govt. to prevent its spread. Still we get to see people roaming on roads violating norms. Yes people are also stepping outside to get there basic daily needs fulfilled by daily required needs. But many are attempting it reason to get out being tired staying at home. Such violation are putting life at risk for rest & this has to be taken up very strictly now or else it will quarantine our life forever behind doors.China has recovered after contributing such spread of epidemic worldwide but we are still acting the way like we have antidote it can cure Covid-19 if suffered. Every celebs & known personalities around nation is requesting to stay at home. Keep safe to yourself , your family. We have to act now or it will be too late. Treat this now or never & act it like now or never..last_img read more

Theresa May: London terror strike ‘an attack on the free world’

first_imgThe identity of the first of the victims killed by the attackers was released Monday. She was Canadian Christine Archibald.The prime minister responded to criticism that police cuts have made the U.K. more vulnerable. “The commissioner of the Metropolitan police has said that the Met is well resourced, and they are, and that they have very powerful counterterrorism capabilities, and they do,” said May.May’s statement followed comments from London’s Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, who said that terror attacks in the U.K. “have a primarily domestic center of gravity” with little sign of coordinated planning from abroad.Speaking on the BBC’s Today program, Dick pointed to “volatile” plotters that carry out basic attacks with very little planning time. “We will always be looking to see if something has been directed from overseas but I would say the majority of the threat we are facing at the moment does not appear to be,” said Dick.In addition to the three recent attacks in Westminster, Manchester and the London Bridge area on Saturday, Dick said a further 18 plots had been foiled since 2013.Seven people died in the attack in the London Bridge area on Saturday with 48 injured, prompting Prime Minister Theresa May to warn of copy-cat attacks. According to the Telegraph, one of the three attackers in London had been reported to police twice over extremist comments. Also On POLITICO London attack: everything we know so far By POLITICO By the numbers How to fight terror: Start with the facts By Robert Muggah ISIS claims responsibility for London attack By Zoya Sheftalovich “Terrorism breeds terrorism, and perpetrators are inspired to attack not only on the basis of carefully-constructed plots after years of planning and training — and not even as lone attackers radicalized online — but by copying one another and often using the crudest of means of attack,” said May.On Monday the Liberal Democrats urged May to publish a report that covers the funding of extremist activities in the U.K. that dates back to her time as home secretary. It is believed to name Saudi Arabia as an important source of funding for terror groups. “Theresa May talks of the need to have some difficult and sometimes embarrassing conversations,” the Lib Dem leader Tim Farron wrote in the Guardian. “That should include exposing and rooting out the source funding of terror, even it means difficult and embarrassing conversations with those such as Saudi Arabia that the government claims are our allies.”In a speech Sunday evening, his first since the attack, the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn accused May of trying to “protect the public on the cheap” by cutting police budgets. He promised more police officers and a pay-rise for those already serving if elected.According to Dick, some 23,000 people of interest are on the police’s radar and they are pursuing 500 active investigations involving multiple suspects.“Inevitably on occasion, somebody will get through and be successful and on occasion, these people would have been known to the authorities before,” said Dick.But the commissioner added the capital is resilient. “London is coming back to work,” said Dick. “I don’t think people want to be put off and they are defiant in the face of terrorism.”center_img The terrorist attack in London Saturday night was “an attack on the free world” the British Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday, as she dismissed criticisms of her record on policing.May said police now know the identities of the three attackers but are not releasing them publicly yet. They have raided two more properties Monday, both in East London, and 11 people are now in custody.“The police are working hard to establish the identities of all those who were tragically killed or injured in the attack,” the prime minister said following a meeting of the government’s emergency committee COBRA, “The victims came from a number of nationalities. This is an attack on London and the United Kingdom, but it is also an attack on the free world.”last_img read more

Boris Johnson heralds ‘recaptured sovereignty’ after Brexit

first_imgLONDON — Boris Johnson hailed the “dawn of a new era” as the U.K. leaves the European Union.In a video address to the nation broadcast an hour before the U.K.’s exit, the prime minister welcomed “a moment of real national renewal and change.”“The most important thing to say tonight is that this is not an end but a beginning,” he said in a pre-recorded video filmed in Downing Street. “We will rediscover muscles that we have not used for decades — the power of independent thought and action.” He also stressed the key facets of his domestic agenda, including infrastructure spending, fighting crime, boosting technology and investing more in the U.K.’s poorer regions.“This is the dawn of a new era in which we no longer accept that your life chances — your family’s life chances — should depend on which part of the country you grow up in,” he said.

Have You Heard ‘Blackstar,’ David Bowie’s New 10-Minute Song? It’s Weird

first_imgWith the recent news that David Bowie would be releasing a new album, Blackstar, in early 2016, the prolific songwriter has released the 10-minute title track from the release.The composition is typically bizarre, featuring some cosmic art-rock with chanting, classical elements, and a healthy mix of Bowie’s iconic vocals. The song fits in with some of Bowie’s space-themed compositions, like “Space Oddity” and “Life On Mars?,” but gears away from the radio-friendliness and into the depths of Bowie’s twisted imagination.Listen to the new release below:last_img read more

Nectar nurtures pitcher plant’s eating habits

first_imgNew research from the Harvard Forest shows that carnivorous pitcher plants use sweet nectar to attract ants and flies to their water-filled traps, not color, as earlier research had indicated.The work, which was among the first to experimentally examine the role of nectar in attraction by pitcher plants in the field, not only served to advance understanding of insect-eating plants, it also helped to improve science education at local schools. It was conducted as part of a National Science Foundation-funded program to enrich science training of local schoolteachers.The research, published Wednesday (May 6) in the journal Biology Letters, was conducted by Katherine Bennett, a fourth- and fifth-grade math and science teacher at J.R. Briggs Elementary School in Ashburnham, Mass., under the guidance of Aaron Ellison, senior ecologist and senior research fellow at Harvard Forest.Ellison, who has worked on carnivorous plants for more than a decade, said the work was spurred in part by Bennett’s interest and in part by a journal article Ellison had seen that concluded that color was the main prey attractant in a group of pitcher plants studied in a greenhouse in Germany. That study, which didn’t control for the presence of sweet nectar in the plants and which found that flies were the major prey, didn’t agree with the observations Ellison had made over his years studying the plants in the field. Ants, not flies, are the plants’ main prey, he said, and ants can’t see color, two facts that made him suspicious of the earlier results.Bennett meanwhile, was working at the Harvard Forest in a National Science Foundation-funded citizen-scientist program. She spent a season working with Ellison on ant inventories, and, in her second season, her initial idea for an independent project fell through, so Ellison set her to work studying pitcher plant prey attraction.Pitcher plants live in boggy areas where their carnivorous habits help compensate for the nutrient-poor soil. They are called “pitcher” plants because they are shaped like a slender pitcher or vase whose base is filled with rainwater spiked with digestive enzymes. The sweet nectar is produced on the pitcher’s outside and on its lip, where it not only attracts insects, but it also serves as a lubricant, helping prey slip inside. The pitcher’s inside surface is slick and waxy, and covered with tiny, downward-facing hairs that serve to keep prey from escaping the water below.Once an ant or fly falls into the trap, it drowns and sinks to the bottom where it decomposes, making its nutrients available to the plant.To find out what was going on with the plants, Bennett and Ellison created 70 artificial pitcher plants using 50 milliliter tubes. They painted them red and green, the colors found on natural plants, but varied the coloration from all red to all green, with different proportions in between. They filled the artificial pitchers with ethanol, a liquid commonly used in insect capture, and spread thickened sweet corn syrup in patterns on some of the fake pitcher plants. They then planted the artificial plants near real pitcher plants in Tom Swamp, a bog that is part of Harvard Forest in Petersham, Mass.They compared the results from the artificial pitchers with 25 natural plants that had had their liquid suctioned out and replaced with distilled water to control for the possibility that prey were attracted by the scent of decaying insects inside.The results, Ellison said, were about as clear as they get. Natural pitcher plants caught 357 insects while the pseudo-pitchers with the sweet syrup caught 344. The pseudo-pitchers without the sweetener, by contrast, caught only 62 insects.“The results showed that plastic pitchers with sugar catch the same amount of ants and flies as natural pitcher plants, and if you take the sugar away, nothing gets captured,” Ellison said.The work, Ellison said, furthers an argument that has continued for 100 years over how pitcher plants attract their prey. Despite those clear-cut results, however, the argument isn’t yet entirely settled. Because the plants’ coloration occurs in elaborate patterns of red veins — patterning that was not explored in the current work — experts in the field have suggested the need for further exploration of the interplay between nectar and color.Thus, Ellison and Bennett will focus this summer on the exact location of the nectar on the plants to see if the red vein pattern serves some yet unseen purpose.In the meantime, Bennett and her students continue to reap the benefits of her involvement. Bennett said she got involved in research at Harvard Forest to improve her science teaching, but said the work was also personally rewarding. Though moving through the bog was challenging, she said the quiet days there were peaceful.“I wanted to get involved because I love teaching science, but I felt I was lacking in science knowledge,” Bennett said.Since she began working at the Harvard Forest four years ago, Bennett has taught units on ants and on forest ecology, aided by advice from Ellison.“Anytime I have a question, we know where the experts are,” Bennett said. “This has made me a much better a science teacher.”last_img read more

Breathing In vs. Spacing Out

first_imgThe New York Times:Two and a half millenniums ago, a prince named Siddhartha Gautama traveled to Bodh Gaya, India, and began to meditate beneath a tree. Forty-nine days of continuous meditation later, tradition tells us, he became the Buddha — the enlightened one.More recently, a psychologist named Amishi Jha traveled to Hawaii to train United States Marines to use the same technique for shorter sessions to achieve a much different purpose: mental resilience in a war zone.“We found that getting as little as 12 minutes of meditation practice a day helped the Marines to keep their attention and working memory — that is, the added ability to pay attention over time — stable,” said Jha, director of the University of Miami’s Contemplative Neuroscience, Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative. “If they practiced less than 12 minutes or not at all, they degraded in their functioning.”Read the whole story: The New York Times More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more

Morris said. “We had two detectives respond and have stepped up all of our business checks. We are committed to our small businesses … we will make these cases a top priority.”Chief Sgambellone explained that many businesses are closed down due to the pandemic. People are out of work and some of those people are getting desperate.“We want to encourage businesses to be extra vigilant and not leave any valuables inside their businesses,” Chief Sgambellone said. “We are asking anyone with information about these break-ins to contact us.”Cmdr. Morris expressed his anger that these crimes occurred in this community.“This infuriates me … our small businesses are complying by being closed during the COVID-19 public health emergency and we are not going to let Los Alamos be a place where criminals come to burglarize our businesses,” Cmdr. Morris said, adding that police have now acquired video footage of the suspects and will be sharing that with the community shortly … check back at police department is offering a $250 reward to anyone with information that leads to the identification or arrest of the culprit or culprits involved in these break ins, Cmdr.
