  • Use anti-virus Software- Firewalls and latest anti-virus software should be installed wherever possible Even if it slows down the system, it can save all your work which would otherwise be destroyed by an attack. In case of businesses, hire Security Experts if needed. Like the saying goes better safe than sorry
  • Block-Suspicious or unknown accounts are better blocked. Do not accept friend requests from doubtful strangers.
  • Online Shopping Shop only from secured sights. Try choosing the Cash On Delivery option where ever possible. The online retailer’s internet address will change from “http” to “https” to indicate a connection is secure, make sure you check this and proceed with the payment. Don’t store your card details on websites, put in those extra seconds everytime to enter the details. Image result for passwords
  • Passwords– Use strong passwords for all your IDs. Use different passwords for different sites
  • Multiple email accounts Have separate accounts for official and informal transactions so even if one of the accounts gets hacked, all your banking and passport details are not compromised.
  • No unwanted clicking– Do not acknowledge pop-ups, as they might contain malicious software tricking you into installing malware. Similar strategies are used by hackers by luring you into opening links or attachments and in turn installing malware which makes your device vulnerable. Emails claiming that you have won high-value Lottery or any kind of money is dangerous, DO NOT entertain such emails.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 It may not be practicable to eradicate cybercrime but it is quite possible to check them. Crime cannot be completely extinguished from the society. If every cyberspace user takes that one extra step to safeguard himself and his data and business, exploitation of it may be saved. Various laws are put in place for the variety of cyber crimes, but don’t they say, ‘Prevention is better than cure’

Know Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking was born on January 8, 1942 and died on March 14, 2018. He was the wheelchair-ridden scientist who gave lectures with the aid of a computerized speech synthesizer. He was a British scientist, a renowned professor at Cambridge University in England, and the author of the best-selling book “A Brief History of Time.” He performed revolutionary work in physics and cosmology. He is responsible for bringing science to the common man. He is noted for his study of black holes and the origin of the universe. There is also a film based on his life ‘The Theory Of Everything’.

  • Hawkings was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) at the age of 21 while he was at the University of Cambridge studying cosmology.  ALS is a rare neurological disease that destroys the neurons which control voluntary muscles in the body. It was miraculous that he lived for as long as he did with that condition because of his determination to overcome unexpected adversity. As he rightly said, “However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.”
  • In 1974, Hawking’s radiation theory research made him a popular within the scientific world. He showed that black holes emit radiation and should eventually evaporate and disappear. This discovery set Hawking on a career path marked by awards, notoriety and distinguished titles that reshaped the thinking about black holes and the universe. He was named as a fellow of the Royal Society and even merited the prestigious Albert Einstein Award.
  • In 1988 Hawking skyrocketed to global popularity with the publication of A Brief History of Time. The book is a description of cosmology for the masses and offered an overview of how the universe actually is and how we see it. It was an instant success.
  • In 2007, he made an important progress towards space travel. He had the opportunity to experience a zero-gravity environment. He was freed from his wheelchair in a Boeing 727 designed for training and experienced bursts of weightlessness.

  • Hawking attended the Sweden conference in August 2015, to discuss new theories about black holes and the infamous black hole  “information paradox.” The solution to the paradox of what becomes of an object that enters a black hole could be black hole ‘hairs’ that form on the event horizon, making a kind of two-dimensional holographic imprint of whatever’s been sucked in.
  • In March 2018 Neil deGrasse Tyson interviewed Stephen Hawking, they discussed what he conceived of the universe as it existed before the Big Bang. Hawking said, that one could regard imaginary and real-time beginning at the South Pole. There is nothing south of the South Pole, so there was nothing around before the Big Bang.
  • He used a speech-generating device (SGD) or a voice output communication aid, this replaces speech or writing. His cheek movement was detected by an infrared switch mounted on his spectacles. This switch was his interface with the computer. The software ACAT included a word prediction algorithm provided by SwiftKey, trained on his books and lectures, so he usually only had to type the first couple of characters and select the whole word. Once the sentence was formed, it was sent to the speech synthesizer.  This is how he conveyed his enlightening thoughts and lectures.

  • His last paper predicted multiverse also how our universe would eventually fade into blackness as the stars run out of energy. “I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail, There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.” said the atheist and the greatest mind ever about death.

Accidental inventions

In the age of incessant innovations, inventions and discoveries are commonplace. Most inventions take a very long time to realize, some even take decades. There are others that just happen, without preparation,  through serendipity, scientists stumble into things. Here are some such coincidental inventions

In 1950Joseph McVicker, head of a Kutol Products Company, a soap manufacturer in Cincinnati, Ohio, created a doughy clay to remove soot stains. But people rejected the idea. Then in 1957, he saw his school teacher using this dough for modeling in her classes. Now it came to be used as a toy turning its creators into millionaires.

Potato Chips

In 1853 George Crum, a chef in New York came across a dissatisfied customer with his soggy french fries. In an endeavor to shut him up, Crum sliced them extremely thin, fried them, submerged them in salt and served it. Surprisingly, the customer liked them and was very happy with the birth of Potato Chips.

Post-it Notes

Spencer Silver and Art Fry at 3M Laboratories started out with producing a super strong adhesive for use in the aerospace industry in building planes. The adhesive could stick only something like paper but did not damage the surface after pulling off. Fry later found them useful to mark hymns of his book at the church choir. This is how the idea of the Post-it was fashioned

Ice Cream Cones

Originally ice cream was served in dishes and cups. In 1904, at  St Louis World’s Fair, a Syrian concessionaire Hamwi was selling waffles in a stall next to an ice cream vendor. The ice cream was selling very well, to the extent that he ran out of dishes. Hamwi’s waffles were in fact not selling well, so he came up with a quick solution to the ice cream vendor’s problem, he rolled the waffle in the shape of a cone, cooled it and tossed ice cream in it and the ice cream cone was born


The ice lolly, freeze pops were also accidentally invented. An 11-year old boy left his glass filled with water, powdered soda mix with a wooden stirring stick on the porch in a cold night. When he saw it in the morning, the mixture had frozen, he gobbled this icy concoction, this is how the great idea was concocted.


A pharmacist, John Pemberton made and sold a syrup as a cure for headaches and nervous disorders. In 1885, due to the ban on sales of alcohol he created a coca-based syrup to add to carbonated water, resulting in a perfect beverage called Coca Cola


A  British pharmacist noticed a dried mass on the end of a stick while he was stirring a mix of chemicals. Scraping it off resulted in sparks and flame. This is how friction lights came into being


In 1907 when Leo Hendrik Baekeland unintentionally created Bakelite. Baekeland combined formaldehyde with phenol, a waste product of coal, and subjected the mixture to heat with an intention to come up with a substitute for shellac. The heating created a polymer that did not melt under heat and stress. This synthetic material then started being  used anywhere and everywhere and is known to us as Plastic

This is how things we rely on for our daily utility, weren’t intended to be consciously fabricated, they just happened by fortuity and now we reap the benefits of these happy accidents. So next time when performing an experiment, be ready for an upcoming accidental invention.

Plastic Roads For Greening Our Construction

Ever thought of a greener way to travel? Tired of seeing plastic waste lying on the road? Tired of battered roads and overflowing landfills? A new road building technology is accelerating in all parts of the world. Roads are constructed using waste plastic. These roads are in fact found to perform better than the conventional bitumen roads

The idea seeded from the fact that disposal of the abundant plastic waste had started becoming a major problem. Plastic is no-biodegradable. This waste is just dumped on the roads and burning of plastic causes environmental pollution. Recycling plastic has been taken up as a responsibility by many countries, it is done in various ways,  one of them is to utilize it for the construction of roads.

Plastic and Asphalt are mixed to form a compound called polymerized bitumen. Roads made using this compound are stronger and can offer resistance to the daily wear and tear and varying seasons. The Indian Centre for Plastics in the Environment (ICPE) has been promoting the use of plastic waste to construct asphalt roads. Long trial roads have also been made using this technique.


  • Low cost
  • Helps control pollution
  • Sturdier roads
  • Weather-resistant
  • Increased Road life
  • Fewer potholes and cracks
  • Low maintenance
  • Safer

How it is done

Plastic waste like bags, cups, bottles are sorted, cleaned, dried and shredded. This shredded plastic and melted at temperatures around 170°C. Hot bitumen is then added and mixed with the melted plastic. This mixture is then laid as regular asphalt concrete

India is one of the countries that has already participated in this revolution and states have constructed Plastic Roads. About 3000 miles of road has been constructed using non-recyclable plastic waste. Prof. Rajagopalan Vasudevan, who is the Dean and Head of Department of Chemistry, Thiagarajar College of Engineering (TCE), Madurai, is known as the Plastic Man of India. He has been instrumental in bringing about this revolution in the country. He was the first to try out plastic roads in his campus in 2002 which are still intact.

Plastic being non-biodegradable, this technique has been invented to put plastic to good use.The global issue of plastic waste disposal is being taken care of to some extent due to this technology. This has not only helped improve the environment but also created a source of income. Using new technologies, man is trying to negate the effects of the damage he has done to the environment at large. This one is an effort worthwhile and successful. Better roads with plastic is like killing two birds with one stone.

The SEO service provider can heighten the ranking of your website which quickly results in increased sales and higher profits
  • My Go-to Salesman Your website can explain benefits, features, and advantages of your product or services. Consistent updating and promoting contents of the website will drive more people to it. Answer the Frequently Asked Questions, address anticipated objections. Better still, nudge them to take action by signing up entering their card details and making a purchase right now! So you interact only with genuinely interested buyers. It does the filtering job for you as well
  • Links are very important as far as viral marketing is concerned. If there are many sites linking to you, the word is being spread around the world. If your website has good content associated with your product or service, people will be more inclined towards linking your website to theirs thus promoting it further
  • Client Database can be built easily with the website, there would be thousand potential clients who stop by your website. If you keep presenting value and record their email addresses, these potential clients will become valued customers to loyalists to your brand
  • Strong bond The customers can review product features online and leave feedbacks to which you can send responses which strengthen your credibility and customer-seller bond
  • Self-operating Store Your website sells the products and services 24/7 thus easy on you and the customers. With minimal development cost, no distribution, no employees to manage
  • Permanent relationship Once transacted, maybe your services or products are not needed by clients for a while, maybe they need it after a period of time. At such time, you want them to think of you. The automated emails of your website will help keep the relationship warm and give them reminders at regular intervals

All this can be done by someone who you can hire and you can focus on the other important stuff and have your business growing for you. This is how an effective and progressive website will help your business grow by leaps and bounds
