Innovation is intergral part to over come from recession especially for India

The word innovation is now become integral part for sustaining the growth in any technological, social and economical field. How many people were actual thought about the change in their daily work innovatively ?
No one undergone to simplify the type work they are doing. This is not the way people want to work. As a integral part of corporate world we lost our identity in big companies. Their is less opportunity to start a project from the scratch. In India whatever we doing the work, we are just executing the other minds innovation. Self innovation is most satisfactory for any person.
Innovation comes in our life when we feel freedom to think and desire to invent. Inspirational team work and motivation is the basic need to achieve the goal. Whenever we lost or lag behind our goal, but still our innovation must go on by only one thing is by keeping hope.

Today India needs both innovation and technology which are backbone for modern economical development. Innovation in any field is possible by combined effort of industrial and research centers. Innovative development in the fields like digital, media and entertainment, infrastructure development, social life should be carried out by building the platform for small to big companies. Companies should give more importance to development and researching in their respective fields to keep in race.

I think we need strong political and leader ship quality in new government which should boost our national integrity. We have to attract the investors in various sectors basically for urban and rural development.

keep on reading and give the comments for
  • You have any points or suggestions in your field or sector for innovative development ?

Futuristic innovations on daily life needs through mobile phone usage

In my blog I always wished to talk about innovations which make our life simple. But I hardly got interest in writing the innovations which actually make our life monotonous and more confusing.
Today I found one interesting article on how innovations would make daily life needs simple and joyful. But these innovations still in discussion stage.
Do you ever thought about buying the products and paying the bills through your sweet heart mobile ?. If you are in depression then it can be detected by the voice tone. All these things possible by the software which would be implemented in mobiles in near future.

These discussions were under gone at MIT’s first-ever emerging technologies conference in Delhi.
More young entrepreneurs are thinking these simple aspects of our daily life needs.

These innovations cannot be delivered in highly acclaimed research centers or in controlled atmosphere. Best innovations are all coming to picture by meeting the people, and understanding how well common urban man using the technology more effective way.

35.5m yr old global cooling caused by sharp decline in CO2

A new research has found that prehistoric global cooling that started in Antarctica about 35.5 million years ago, was caused by a sharp drop in the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels.

Even after the continent of Antarctica had drifted to near its present location, its climate was subtropical. Then, 35.5 million years ago, ice formed on Antarctica in about 100,000 years, which is an "overnight" shift in geological terms.

"Our studies show that just over thirty-five million years ago, 'poof,' there was an ice sheet where there had been subtropical temperatures before," said Matthew Huber, assistant professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Purdue University.

Software to translate video games and other softwares into different languages

From North Carolina State University researchers came up with a software tool for easier and faster translating video games and other software into different languages for use in various international markets.

The research was supported in part by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Army Research Office. The research will be presented in May at the International Conference on Software Engineering in Vancouver, Canada, and will also be published in the proceedings of the conference.

Through this software tool a major hurdle in translating the thousands of lines of coding time can be saved. Programmers have to be sure they are not replacing code that necessitates how the application/program really works.

But through this software tool discovers those pieces of software code that are designed to appear on-screen and communicate with the user such as menu items, as opposed to those pieces of code that order how the program really operates. When those "on-screen" pieces of code have been identified, the programmers can translate them into the applicable language, like translating the tabs on a toolbar from English into Chinese.

Cellulosic ethanol: Future Fuel compete with Gas

By 2030 in the U.S. Ethanol will replace gasoline by one-third of annual usage. The Joint study was released on Wednesday by Sandia National Laboratories and General Motors. Its amazing to see that 75 billion gallons of ethanol produced only from Cellulosic ethanol out of 90 billion gallons of it.

Cellulosic ethanol is a biofuel mainly produced from agricultural and forestry wastage like wood, non-edible parts of plants, grasses etc. It is a environment friendly and renewable energy for transportation fuel.

The difference between Cellulosic ethanol and Conventional ethanol :

Conventional ethanol obtained from edible parts of the food grains, which is usually less productive. Where as cellulosic ethanol can be obtained from non edible parts of food grains like cereal straws and corn stover or from dedicated crops.

Dedicated crops includes sugarcane, cotton woods and switch grass. These crops are raw material for biofuel energy. And all these crops are ability to re-grow with short term life cycle. Advantage is it allows to multiple harvesting without re-planting. These food raw materials are cheap and ample.

Cellulosic ethanol emits less carbon so directly reduces green house effect.

Now students can get the computers at about Rs 500

Its good news for students who are interested to learn and gain more knowledge through computer enabled education. Now might be within a 6 months for just Rs 600 (USD 10) low cost computers available for those who want to learn from home on each subject.
Government initiating this great facility to make available for every family.
Technology for these small devices has been developed by IISC, Bangalore and IIT Madras. "But lot of testing has to be done to ensure that the technology works properly. Once the testing is over, the computers will be made available on commercial basis. The target is to make it available in six months time," Higher Education Secretary, Ministry of HRD, R P Agrawal said reporters in New Delhi on Thursday.
The computer will be a small device which supports expandable memory, Wi Fi and LAN facility. The e-content on every subject will be provided by government for free of cost .

A prototype computer has been designed which is being tested now. "Its cost will be USD 10. If the parents want to gift something to their kids, they can easily purchase this item and gift them," he said.

Students can get the e-content feed and load them in their computers and take advantage of the materials. The government will provide these computers to educational institutions at a subsidised price, Agrawal said.

The government is in the process of consultation with different agencies for production of these computers and are seeking collaboration with them. These computers can run at two WT power. "The ultimate target is to have a Virtual Technological University," Agrawal said.

The low-cost computers are being developed under the central scheme -- National Mission on Education through Information Communication Technology (ICT).

Are you ready to Shift your PC to Online GDRIVE ?

From past more than two years we heard Google planning to luanch a service through which you can shift your personal computer in to GDrive (Google Drive). Which is now a next big thing in internet world. GDrive acts as a your pc where you can actually access your data just like your pc.
GDrive stores and processes the data in favor to "Cloud Computing", and all these things happening away from thousand miles in remote data centers.
Your every day action now in the future can be accessed through the internet.
The long-rumoured GDrive is expected to be launched this year, according to the technology news website TG Daily, which described it as "the most anticipated Google product so far".
Now most of the net users depending on the web based services and more on free services. Like email, digital photo storage mainly dependent websites like gmail, Flickr and Picasa etc,..Most of the documents in any format can read through online compatible applications.

Their is a fear of data loss from pc or laptop crashes and losing important data. But through this evolution that problem is expected very less.

All these online storing and processing is done regularly in "Cloud" and accesed through any where in the world.

But their is also be a fear giving all of our identity and information to outside world, which most of the people hate to do that.

I felt bad for giving my identity and control to unknown world. Where we introduced to every hour for thousands of unknow new virus threats. Now future of internet world looks wired.

Genetic Diseases may be cured By Scientists

A major break through for treatment of genetic diseases. For many years we all carrying the wrong genes to our new generation which is could not be possible to stop the spreading of the genital diseases. But the new study hopes potential curing for genetical disorder.

Scientists are edging closer to a potential cure for debilitating genetic diseases like Huntington's disease, Friedreich's ataxia and Fragile X syndrome, thanks to a recent breakthrough led by an Indian Australian.
The finding is the outcome of collaboration between a team led by Sureshkumar Balasubramanian of Queensland university School of Biological Sciences and Detlef Weigel at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Germany.
Balasubramanian studies how different environmental conditions modulate developmental processes in plants. Specifically he aims to understand how plants respond to changes in temperature at a molecular mechanistic level.
The study identifies an expansion of a repeat pattern in the DNA of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana that has striking parallels to the DNA repeat patterns observed in humans suffering from neuronal disorders such as Huntington's disease and Fredereich's ataxia.
"It opens up a whole new array of possibilities for future research, some of which could have potential implications for humans," Balasubramanian said.
The types of diseases the research relates to, which are caused by "triplet repeat expansions" in DNA, become more severe through the generations but were difficult to study in humans due to the long timeframes involved, said a university release.
A plant model with a relatively short lifespan would allow scientists to study DNA mutations over several generations, Balasubramanian said.

Global Warming, bacteria threatens Coral health

There is real threat for coral health, mainly due to global warming and bacterial infection. Which is making life of coral worse.
Yellow band disease (YBD)-a bacterial infection that sickens coral colonies- is apparently getting worse with global warming sayresearchers, who have now identified the bacteria responsible for the disease. Researchers at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) have reported isolating the bacteria that cause YBD: a group of four new Vibrio species, which combine with existing Vibrio on the coral to attack the zooxanthellae, which are the photosynthetic symbionts of corals.

YBD is characterised by a swath of pale-yellow or white lesions along the surface of an infected coral colony.

The discoloured band is a mark of death, indicating where the bacterial infection has killed the zooxanthellae. The coral host suffers from cellular damage and starves without its major energy source, and usually does not recover.
The study further indicated that due to temperature rise in the coastal and sea level making the infected Coral more destructive to over come this. Due to global warming these precious ocean species already coming to an extinct. Their is clear indication that life of ocean living organisms in a dangerous level.

Child Monitoring Gadget "The “mother” of all gadgets!"

The child monitoring latest gadget the Num8 digital wristwatch which helps parents to keep watching of their children through satellite.
The state-of-the-art gadget has been designed by the British company Lok8u. For a mere £149 worried parents can keep an eye on their children’s whereabouts through a GPS chip hidden inside the watch, similar to the chip inside a satnav. The chip can transmit the location of the child and alert parents by text as accurately as the name of the road the child is sited.

Steve Salmon, Lok8u’s chief executive feels confident the watch will give children more freedom. He said,

“It is my profound hope that Num8 will help parents feel more comfortable about letting their children go out and play”.

Some other Child safety devices

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Based Devices like The BrickHouse Child Locator alert you to a wandering child and helps locate them with a hand held unit. This kind of system can find children quickly within a range of 300 to 600 Feet.

Simple Audio Alert Units like Mommy I'm Here feature a cute Teddy Bear Receiver your child wears, triggers a loud 56 DB intermittent chirp/beeping sound when the parent pushes a button on the hand held remote.

GPS Logging Devices such as the PocketTrack will tell you where your child has been after you download the data collected on the GPS Logger to your PC to view the maps and data.

GPS Real Time Tracking Systems like the TrimTracXS ideal for monitoring the whereabouts of teen drivers enables you to log on to the Internet and see where your child is at any moment. There have been attempts to develop a Real Time GPS Unit the size of a wristwatch for children, but so far battery life and other issues have made this system unreliable. We continue to work on finding a system to fit this need.

Save money and tree by reducing Computer power consumption

If you doesn't like to turn off your computer simply because you don't want to wait for the start up process. Then good option is to use the Power Options that a computer offers.

It is better to set up power options according to your needs and most recommanded set up is using the stand by or hibernate mode. If it is possible try to turnoff the monitor after every 15 or 30 minutes.

Stand By will use less power and when you are ready to continue working, it won't take long to startup again. This is recommended for your short breaks from work.

Both Stand By and Hibernate are good options to lower the power consumption of your computer. And avoid the using screen savers.

For laptop, turn off your wireless card if you are not using it, and reducing the brightness of your monitor. This can also help your battery last longer.

By reducing your computer's power consumption you will also reduce your energy bill and CO2 emissions. You will also be saving trees and helping the environment.

5 ways you can help to decrease power consumption on your computer

  1. Blackle was created to provide a front end to Google, but with a black background. Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black.
  2. CO2 Saver is a free toolbar released by Snap and is a lightweight application that runs in Windows. It adjusts your Windows power settings so that your computer, monitor and hard drive consumes less electricity when you’re not actively using them
  3. If you don't feel comfortable messing with the Power Options, there is a software called Local Cooling. This software is completely free and it will optimize your computer's power consumption by using a more effective power save mode. It will also keep showing you how much energy and how many trees you have saved because of using that software. To download it please visit
  4. Energy Star is an international standard for energy efficient consumer products.

Flaw In Internet Security revealed

Independent security researchers in California and researchers at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in the Netherlands, EPFL in Switzerland, and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands have found a weakness in the Internet digital certificate infrastructure that allows attackers to forge certificates that are fully trusted by all commonly used web browsers.

As a result of this weakness it is possible to impersonate secure websites and email servers and to perform virtually undetectable phishing attacks, implying that visiting secure websites is not as safe as it should be and is believed to be. By presenting their results at the 25C3 security congress in Berlin on the 30th of December, the experts hope to increase the adoption of more secure cryptographic standards on the Internet and therewith increase the safety of the internet.
