Kayaking: The Technique to Use a Kayak in the Moving Water

24 Sep 17

Kayak is a small and fine watercraft which is moved by means of a double-bladed paddle. The use of a Kayak in the moving water is called Kayaking. Many people confuse Kayaking with canoeing. However, canoeing is completely different from Kayaking.

While using a Kayak the peddler sits facing forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle to pull front-to-back on one side and then the other in rotation. Moreover, most Kayaks have closed decks, although sit-on-top and inflatable kayaks are growing in popularity as well.

Kayaking is forever rewarding.  Anyone who wants to learn kayaking can easily learn the tricks because the basic skills can be learned in a day or so. However, one can have fun perfecting those basic skills and learning new ones for years. Kayaking as a hobby provides the basis for a health and fitness lifestyle. Additionally, it is a relaxing activity.

The best part of Kayaking is it can be pursued solo.  It is something one can spend a few hours enjoying.  Or one can challenge themselves to an expedition of days or even weeks. Kayaking has its health benefits too. As per the health experts, to move the kayak at about 5 mph is going to require about 0.1 hp of effort. This effort is going to use up about 400 calories per hour.  And so, four hours of paddling can burn up about 1600 calories.

Bathukamma: The Flower Festival of Telangana

24 Sep 17

Telangana is a beautiful southern Indian state, famous for its 16-century Mosque-Charminar and many other historical places. This state is also well-known for its flower festival that is known as Bathukamma. As per the Shalivahana calendar, Bathukamma comes in the latter half of the monsoon. There is a reason behind why this festival is celebrated before the onset of winter.

The monsoon rains usually bring plenty of water into the freshwater ponds of Telangana. Additionally, the rainwater also helps wildflowers to bloom in various vibrant colors all across the unplanted and barren plains of the region.

There are various flowers those blooms in this region such as the banti, chemanti, nandi-vardhanam etc. This cultural symbol of Telangana is celebrated by the women of Telangana, indicating the beauty of nature in vibrant colors of multitudinous flowers. During the event, women of Telangana celebrate the flowers that grow exclusively in the region.

Revealing the Puzzle of Diverse Galaxy Rotations

23 Sep 17

A galaxy is a system of stars, interstellar gas, dust, and dark matter that rotates in a curve like pattern called a velocity curve. Physists have tried to explain a process called “dark matter self-interaction” by explaining that a graph of rotation speeds at different distances from the center can be easily explained if dark matter particles are assumed to strongly collide with one another in the inner halo that is the place close to the galaxy's center.

Two different galaxies that appear at first instance to be very similar and very much identical can have inner regions rotating at very different speed. It is further explained that every galaxy sits within a dark matter halo that forms the gravitational platform holding them altogether. This gravitational force allows them to rotate in an identical pattern without losing any of the particles, the distribution of dark matter in that halo depends on the motion of stars and gas particles in the galaxy.

In the Cold Dark Matter theory (CDM), dark matter particles are presumed to be collision-less, aside from gravitational force. The dark matter collisions take place in the deep inner halo, where the luminous galaxy is established. When the particles collide, they exchange energy and become thermal neutrons. Present observation paved the way for future observational, experimental, numerical, and theoretical work.

22 Sep 17

Street Hockey is also known as dek hockey, ball hockey and road hockey. The sport is a variation of ice hockey. The sport is played outdoors on foot or can be played using inline or roller skates.

Street hockey is always played on an outdoor surface in its pure form. It is very often played on a street, parking lot, tennis court or the asphalt surface. It was believed that street hockey started when the roads were paved in the wealthy parts of North America. It was around 20th century. Street Hockey was then spread south to the United States. Children, teenagers and even all ice hockey players work on their skills by playing street hockey. They practice it often alone in driveways or out in the street in front of their houses.
