Scientists Showcases New Computational Modeling

27 Jan 17

Scientists at the University of Tsukuba have introduced a new computational modeling approach that provides precise 3D data of anatomical distribution. Through the study, the scientists claimed that the new computational modeling approach can provide data on air flow, vortex formation, and lift around a skier's body.

The scientists said that the new model has utility for designing better ski equipment and determining the ideal posture to adopt during skiing. Since downhill skiers can exceed speeds of 120 km/h, face high levels of air resistance, and must adopt a tuck position to reduce this. Though, at elite levels, miniscule differences in air resistance can be extremely important. At Elite level, podium places can be separated by hundredth of a second.

The team of scientists has advanced their study by establishing a novel approach to computational modeling of air flow alongside wind tunnel experiments. The scientists used a mannequin for their wind tunnel experiments. To validate the computer simulations, the scientists provided total drag data at different air flow speeds to the mannequin.

Human V/S Robots at Workplace in Future

23 Sep 17

With rapid changes in technologies the machines are replacing men at workplace as they insure accuracy in work and saves time. A set of habitual behaviour, cognitions and emotional activities that evolve from biological and environmental factors is called personality. As robots are coming into use at various business and work places the fear of losing the job has started tingling into our minds.

However, a research has shown that, there is nothing to worry, as robots can't perform as humans when it’s the question to have complex social interactions.  We humans can also beat machines when it comes to complete the tasks that require creativity and a high level of complexity that is not usual. Humans perform better in complex situation due to their flexibility.

A research has shown that people with higher level of intelligence, maturity and extraversion and higher interests in arts and sciences are tended to be selected into less computerized job in coming future. It is stressed that the education system must be equipped to face upcoming changes in the labour market, and fortunately it’s changing.  There are many fields who will allow the number of tasks that machines can perform better than humans, that merely increasing educational levels won't be enough to keep up with job automation rather one should be extra intelligent to prove his worth.

Recording and Animating of Dreams Will Change Future

22 Sep 17

34th Annual Conference of the International Association was conducted in Anaheim, California. The conference was on the Study of Dreams. Inspiring researchers and clinicians who have worked on the field of dreams witnessed this conference.

Daniel Oldis who is a lucid dreaming author and Social Dreaming Advisor at DreamsCloud presented his project on “Animating Dreams and Future Dream Recording”. This project aimed to establish a way for capturing and simulating motor behavior in dreams. The presentation on this project consist a demonstration of an iPad avatar animation. It was created out from real data of a sleeping participant. They also thought that their set up will reflect the movements of the participant’s dreaming body.

A lot of research on dream subject was able to establish that body movements in dreams are connected with real signals in the muscles of the sleeping body. The signals are those that appear in the same muscles that are involved in the dream behavior.

'Slow Motion' Earthquakes in New Zealand

21 Sep 17

An Earthquake is a natural phenomenon that occurs when sudden energy is released by earth. It typically causes great destruction, as a result of movements within the earth's crust or volcanic action. There is a kind of slow motion earthquake that occurs over days to weeks be considered to be able to bring great destruction, called a “Slow slip events.” A new study has revealed Kaikura earthquake with 7.8 magnitudes triggered a slow slip event on New Zealand's North Island. A few of the slow slip events occurred as far away as 300 miles from the earthquake. Kaikoura earthquake that hit the South Island of New Zealand in 2016 is considered the second largest quake that has ever been recorded with 7.8 magnitudes.

This type of fault is responsible for causing some of the world's most dangerous earthquakes. An area where a tectonic plate dives or "sub ducts" under an adjacent tectonic plate is termed as subduction zone. This type of fault causes some of the world's most powerful earthquakes, which occur when areas of built-up pressure between the tectonic plates fractures. Slow slip events resemble to earthquakes, as they involve more frequent than normal movement between two pieces of Earth's crust along a fault. Scientists are still trying to justify the relationships between slow slip events and earthquakes but it is clear that they are very powerful earthquakes.

A Balance Amount of Folic Acid to Lower the Risk of Autism

20 Sep 17

Autism is a disorder that refers to a range of conditions, combined with various neurological and physical disabilities. It creates problem in repetitive behaviour, speech, understanding and nonverbal communication of the child.  A research has proven that the children whose mothers had taken 800 or more micrograms of folic acid, has comparatively lower risk of developing Autism. It is also important that mother should be away of pesticides and polluted area to avoid the disease in child. Mothers who took folic acid and were not exposed to pesticides during pregnancy then there had been lesser chance of developing Autism in the child. It is found by a research that being exposed to pesticides and having a lower level of folic acid at the time of conception of foetus invites autism in child. Folic acid helps in recreation of body cells that is essential to fight with autism. It also helps in DNA formation and repair. Autistic children always face trouble in performing their regular activities and communicating with others unlike normal children. This can be avoided by applying some regular precaution and by consuming a regular quantity of folic acid before and during pregnancy; however, it is not a 100% cure. High doses of folic acid helps improve brain function by overcoming the blockade and restoring normal foliate levels inside brain cells that minimizes the risk of autism.

Delhi’s Forgotten Historical Gems

19 Sep 17

Delhi has given shelter to everyone and it’s a place full of historical monuments. These places remind us the stories of ancient times and early India. It’s often called a best destination for tourist.

However, there are many places which are ignored by tourists and residents. There is a treasure trove of monuments out there, waiting to be explored. There are various other structures and monuments and Adham Khan’s Tomb, Mehrauli Village is one of those. This tomb is built by Akbar in 1561 for his foster-brother Adham Khan, son of Maham Anga, who Akbar ordered killed by repeatedly throwing down the walls of the Agra Fort.

As per the history, this tomb is considered unique because of its octagonal shape. Most of the tombs of 3rd century BC are hexagonal. Many people believe that Akbar wanted to build a tomb for Adham in respect for his mother Maham Anga, while making it matchless in the sense that this was a tomb of a traitor.
