What They Say?

Bible: Treat others how you want to be treated.
“Do unto others as you would have them do to you.”
Jesus gives this instruction in the midst of his teaching to love our enemies. He’s telling us, “It doesn’t matter what someone else does to you. Love them. Be kind anyway.” Our kindness cannot be based on the actions or attitude of another.
When they come to us with friendship trouble, we always say to our kids, “You cannot control what your friend does or says. You only have control over your words and actions. Choose kindness.”
But what does kindness look and sound like? Jesus tells us clearly in this passage...
Whatever it is you would want someone else to do or say in a situation . . . do or say just that.
Even though kindness isn’t all about our outward actions, it does come out in what we say and do. If we are developing a spirit of kindness deep within our hearts, we will more easily choose to treat others the way we want to be treated.
The more we choose kindness, the more it will become our natural reaction.
Remember: Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.(Ephesians 4:32 ESV)

Bethany Meilani Hamilton

Bethany Meilani Hamilton was born on February 8, 1990, in Lihue, Kauai, Hawaii raised in a surfing family. Hamilton learned to handle the waves at an early age. She began competitive surfing at age 8, and by age 9 she had earned her first sponsorship. Her promising career was seemingly thwarted at age 13 when a shark bit off her left arm, but she resumed surfing soon after and won a national title in 2005.

On the morning of October 31, 2003, Hamilton went out to surf at Tunnels Beach in Ha'ena with her best friend, Alana Blanchard, and Blanchard's father and brother. While lying on her board, Hamilton suddenly felt extreme pressure on her left arm and was pulled back and forth for several seconds before the flurry passed. Initially feeling no pain, she noticed the water around her had turned red, and her shocked friends realized that her left arm had been divided nearly to the shoulder. Blanchard's father created a quick tourniquet from his surfboard cord and led everyone to shore. Hamilton was rushed to the Hospital, bumping her father from the operating room where he was about to have knee surgery. Although she lost approximately 60 percent of her blood following the attack and endured numerous surgeries, she was stabilized and was released after a few days.

As the story drew national care, it was ascertained that Hamilton had been beaten by a 14-foot tiger shark. Professedly level-headed about the incident and the drastic change to her body, she vowed to return to surfing as soon as possible. Hamilton also demonstrated that the loss of an arm was no barrier to fulfilling her surfing goals. She won the Explorer Women's division at the 2005 NSSA National Championships and began competing on the pro circuit in 2007, winning the T & C Surf Women's Pipeline event that year.

Hamilton subsequently launched her Unstoppable Year online course to help people overcome obstacles and achieve fulfillment.A successful author and public speaker, Hamilton has accorded her adventures in documentary films and obliged on several popular reality TV programs.

If you already knew these, You’re a True GearHead!

What’s with the kind of enthusiasm that does not make you dig deeper? For all the car-lovers, here’s what confirms that you’re a true Gearhead:

Stands for Bayerische Motoren Werke, translated in English as Bavarian Motor Works. The white and blue chequered roundel in the logo represents the flag of Bavaria while the black exterior circle is derived from the logo of BMW’s predecessor – Rapp.

Mercedes was a brand of the Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG). Half of its name came from Daimler’s partner Emil Jellinek’s daughter, Mercédès Jellinek. The other came from Karl Benz, the man responsible for making the first car. When the two came together in 1926, Mercedes-Benz was born. The famous three pointed star comes from a postcard sent by Gottlieb Daimler to his wife which said that he was living in a three pointed star and that ‘one day this star will shine over our triumphant factories.’ The three points are meant to signify land, sea and air and was first seen on a car in 1910.

At the time of establishing, four of seven Maserati brothers became the founders, Bindo, Ernesto, Ettore, and Alfieri. Each of them had a deep passion for engineering and designing automobiles. The only one that didn’t seem interested was Mario who became a painter instead. It’s speculated that he helped to create the Trident, the Maserati logo.

Elon Musk’s Tesla is named after the designer of the alternating current electricity system, Nikola Tesla. Infact, the first model by the brand, the Roadster, had a motor which was descended from Tesla’s original design. The ‘T’ seen on the logo signifies a cross section of an electric motor. The upright part represents a rotor pole while the curved line over the top symbolizes a stator.
Hope you know that Musk only joined the company as a CEO in 2004, whereas the company was founded by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning in 2003.

To be sure of the strength of its vehicles, Volvo has a unique piece of machinery in its Gothenburg test lab. Originally intended to assess how buildings withstand earthquakes, Volvo has modified it to crash test cars. The company carries out 450 full-scale tests per year, taking up to 10 days to prepare for a full test. Cameras then record 1,000 frames per second and the crash test barrier weighs 800 tonnes. That’s how the company secures its reputation for building the world’s safest vehicles, inspiring confidence among motorists across the globe.

Carl Jung's Theory of Introvert, Extrovert and Ambivert

Why do we experience deja vus?

Ah...Deja vu...that uncanny sensation that you’ve had an experience before even though you’re confident that you never did. It’s a fascinating experience that is so evanescent that if you’ve never experienced one before, you won’t even realize that you just did. One must wonder what causes them? Is it something natural or does it indicate that something more sinister? The answer is not simple. As a matter of fact, no one really knows for certain what causes deja vus. However, the way by which they happen is understood and several theories explaining their cause have been hypothesized.

According to Bustle, Deja vu occurs because our brain uses a “faster” method of transmission of sensation and memory impulses while at the same time uses a “slower” process to integrate said sensation and memory impulses. There are numerous areas of coordination in our brain which function in synchrony to dictate our body functions...well...for the most part at least. Sometimes, when that synchrony is broken, even if for a fraction of second, weird stuff happens in our body. Deja vu is also said to be a result of such a neurological anomaly inside our brain.

As mentioned before, there aren’t any set explanations for this phenomenon. The “neurological anomaly” hypothesis remains the most accepted explanation for the same. However, other scientists and physicians say that deja vus can sometimes indeed be authentic in the sense that you might really have had the same experience before. Your brain has made that connection but has failed to properly activate the hippocampus and the temporal lobe whose function is to coordinate memory. Another, much scarier observation links the experience of deja vu with imminent epilepsy for people who are prone to seizures. Deja vus also occur due to stress when the brain has to process a lot of information at once resulting in the aforementioned neurological asynchrony.

COVID 19 and our Saviour ‘Smartphones’


Narita Ahuja,

Mobile is a reflection of our lives — what is important to us in that moment, what is helping us get through the day, and what is connecting us to other people and the world at large.

Due to Covid-19, Stay-at-home orders have introduced many people to the world of applications in their Mobile phones that enable them to order takeout food or groceries online, and when they do go to the store, more people are choosing to pay with their phones instead of touching cash or credit cards. Mobile can be used in diverse areas. From zoom meetings to WhatsApp video calls, from education to information, from games to Google classroom, from online webinars to international conferences, from utilizing time to exhausting space. Anything and Everything in your hands now. Covid-19 without mobile couldn’t work. Mobile phones can be connected to internet at any time and at any place which is advantageous to students to browse anything through it related to their studies.

With an Android/IOS devices, education now goes beyond the four walls of a classroom. And with educational mobile apps, information can now reach a wider audience. With this simple analysis, it is safe to say that the app developers developing these mobile apps in the field of education, business, entertainment, payments, etc. should be appreciated.

To conclude we can say that to overcome the situation of covid-19 mobile phones are playing important role. The medium of using the internet has also changed from big bulky desktops to sleek and compact smartphones. It has made the world so much smaller. Service industries have boomed up. App-based start-ups have started receiving funding in billions of dollars in each round. The exponential growth of mobile-based unicorns seems unrealistic. Making an effort to convert India into Digital India.

“If we just stop to think where we would have been in this pandemic but for digital technology, we would recognize the importance of going digital.”
