Now, Robots to Clean City Reservoir

Good evening friends.  This news will be somewhat surprising to all.  You may ask how can a robot do it?  But it’s really good to know that even not human can do anything.  This was referenced to the Times of India which I like the most to read.

 

Robotic equipment will now be used to clean sedimentation in ground level service reservoirs (GLSR) in the city.


The traditional cleaning process involves emptying the reservoirs and cleaning it manually. This means disruption in water supply to consumers in the area as the process takes at least 20 days.

Also, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) spends nearly Rs 5 lakh on each reservoir every time it is cleaned up. Each reservoir is cleaned up at least two or three times a year. There are 150 GLSRs are in the city. Sending workers down in the reservoir entails a risk of contamination too.

To overcome these problems of cost and contamination, the board is adopting the robotic method which is in use at places like Mumbai and Pune. The system with Robot VR-600 is remote controlled and equipped with rotating brushes and a powerful pump that directly pumps out all loose sediment without raising turbidity in the reservoir.

The VR-600 has a video camera that facilitates inspection of the inside of the reservoir. The entire cleaning process is documented. The waste material can be appropriately discharged from the reservoir.

“The water board allowed a Pune-based company to give a demonstration of the equipment at any two GLSRs. The water board is planning to engage the VR-600 Robot on hire basis to clean the reservoirs,” HMWS&SB managing director G Asok Kumar told TOI.

Lata celebrates her 79th birthday

Music is interest from childhood. I love old hindi songs. Particularly from Lata  Mangeshkar. Her voice is as is from the day I start hearing till today even. Her 79 th birthday was celeberated on Sunday, September 28, 2008. I like my post for her. I like to share news I read on PTI site.

 

India’s most revered singer melody queen Lata Mangeshkar who has mesmerised music lovers with her celestial voice for over six decades celebrated her 79th birthday with family members in her Pune home today.

Didi as she is fondly called by family, fans and admirers is rarely in Mumbai on her birthday. She stays put in her Kolhapur or Pune residence.

 

She was last heard in Vikram Bhatt’s “1920” where she shared playback credits with Pandit Jasraj and Asha Bhosale.

 

On her 75th birthday, Lata was in Mumbai as her nephew Adinath had organised a concert where other singers sang her classic songs. The function was attended by Sharad Pawar, L K Advani among others.

 

Lata’s brother Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar organised a musical concert ‘Didi ani mi’ (Didi and I) at the Bal Gandharva Rang Mandir in Pune in her honour.

 

The legendary singer was introduced to intricacies of classical music by her father master Dinanath Mangeshkar.

 

After his demise, the entire responsibility of looking after the family fell on her young shoulders and at the age of 13 she was compelled to don the greasepaint and act.

 

She did a few Marathi films like ‘Pahili Mangalagaur’, ‘Majhe Bal’, ‘Gaja Bhau’ and even few Hindi movies like ‘Badi Maa’, ‘Jeevan Yatra’ and ‘Samudra Mandir’.

 

Though her playback career started in 1942, she was leaving her first tentative footprints on a music scene dominated by the legendary Shamshad Begum and Noorjehan. It was in 1948 that her career graph took giant leaps with films like Mahal, Baiju bawra, Nagin, Madhumati among others.

Secure your net connections, say experts

Good Afternoon,

Monday back again and day started and also week started too. Day starts with routine walk and other things. From today me and my family started to do prayer in the morning for 15 minutes only. The time is only 15 minutes but its effect is exclent. We will on this some other time.

I was reading time of india’s website and I read the following news. More technology is creating more and more problems. Wi-Fi zone is words everyone loves to hear. Now a day’s more and more net users are willing to have wi-fi zone. Read the following news.

 

 

Cyber experts say that with slight caution, such terror mails being sent by insecure internet connections can easily be avoided.

Sunny Vaghela, a cyber crime expert from Ahmedabad, says that in cities like Mumbai, it is not difficult to hunt out Wi-Fi zones.

“I was on a visit to Mumbai recently when I went to a hotel near the international airport. When I started my Wi-Fi device, to my astonishment, I found 18 connections, ready to be used. When more and more establishments convert themselves into a Wi-Fi zone, it is impossible to track the user,” he said.

However, he added that if the user himself locks his MAC, whether secure or insecure, the outside user cannot use the machine to fiddle with. “It is like a security lock that can be applied with the help of experts. It makes the router connection secure against outside attack,” he said.

A security expert from Ahmedabad added that service providers should support agencies in the nick of time where every second counts for the investigators. “In the first instance, due to lack of co-ordination, we had to wait for five hours just to get the IP,” said an official from Ahmedabad crime branch.

The expert said mail providers such as Yahoo, Google, Rediffmail and others should be given key words on the basis of which one can identify occurring words such as al and arbi used frequently by the terrorists.

“Another way is to keep tab on websites frequented by terrorist groups for interaction. If agencies can have the list of users over a period of last six months, they can have an exhaustive list of the users of the program,” said a security expert.

Nature Love -1

Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural world, physical universe, material world or material universe. “Nature” refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. Manufactured objects and human interaction are not considered part of nature unless qualified in ways such as “human nature” or “the whole of nature”. Nature is generally distinguished from the supernatural. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the galactic.

Dhirendra's Love for Nature

The word nature is derived from the Latin word natura, or “the course of things, natural character.” Natura was a Latin translation of the Greek word physis (φύσις), which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world develop of their own accord.[2] This is shown in the first written use of the word φύσις, in connection with a plant. The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several expansions of the original notion; it began with certain core applications of the word φύσις by pre-Socratic philosophers, and has steadily gained currency ever since. This usage was confirmed during the advent of modern scientific method in the last several centuries.

Sir Donald Bradman -2

Youth and early career

Donald Bradman was the youngest child of George and Emily (née Whatman) Bradman, and was born on 27 August 1908 at Cootamundra, New South Wales (NSW). He had a brother, Victor, and three sisters—Islet, Lilian and Elizabeth May. When Bradman was about two-and-a-half years old, his parents moved to Bowral in the NSW Southern Highlands.

 

Bradman practised batting incessantly during his youth. He invented his own solo cricket game, using a cricket stump for a bat, and a golf ball. A water tank, mounted on a curved brick stand, stood on a paved area behind the family home. When hit into the curved brick facing of the stand, the ball rebounded at high speed and varying angles—and Bradman would attempt to hit it again. This form of practice developed his timing and reactions to a high degree. In more formal cricket, he hit his first century at the age of 12, playing for Bowral Public School against Mittagong High School. 

 

Bush cricketer

In 1920–21, Bradman acted as scorer for the local Bowral team, captained by his uncle George Whatman, and once filled in when the team was short of players, scoring 37 not out. During the season, Bradman’s father took him to the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) to watch the fifth Ashes Test match. On that day, Bradman formed an ambition. “I shall never be satisfied”, he told his father, “until I play on this ground”. Bradman left school in 1922 and went to work for a local real estate agent who encouraged his sporting pursuits by giving him time off when necessary. He gave up cricket in favour of tennis for two years, but resumed playing cricket in 1925–26.
