WMD – Weapon of Mosquito Destruction

photonic_fence

There are many inventions and ideas that aren’t available to the public. Most common reason would be the effort to make a production version is too high when compared to the profit it could make. Then there are those products which are stupid but still make the inventor a lot of money. But I am sure you would be able to find those products even in your own home. I know I have been guilty of buying things on impulse. I came across a product that I found very interesting. Forget interesting, this is amazing and I want this now! Using laser to burn the wings of mosquitoes. I would be the dark emperor of a small area, but I would still be using laser and killing mosquitoes. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree to unwanted killing and definitely not massacre, but scientists have concluded that extinction of mosquitoes would ... Read More »

Until No Child Is Wronged

Afghan Girl

I don’t think everyone is meant to marry. No, not everyone should not be allowed to marry! When I look around I see so many kids who have got a bad life just because their parents didn’t know how to raise a kid. There are those who abuse kids, mentally, physically, emotionally and sometimes sexualy. I am sure most people think that physical and sexual abuse is more frequent, but most children go through a lot of emotional and mental torture throughout their childhood. They just learn to cope with it. After all, that is what you would go through your entire life. Maybe it isn’t abuse, but the induction to real world. If you are to grow up in a world were you will be tortured through never ending tests and trials which will emotionally and mentally drain you, what is a small dose at a younger age? In a world were you ... Read More »

Corporate Responsibility – Google Style

Google

I am not a management guru, but I did learn something about management and corporate responsibilities. Recently on Facebook I came across a post from Robert Scoble about how US market is the market that counts. He was talking about an article which reported that the iPhone 5 sales have helped Apple to take climb up the sales chart atleast in the US. I agree with him on the point that US market is one of the major market there is and being the leader there counts for something. But I would like to take a look at the bigger picture. According to reports, the the individual parts of iPhone costs less than $200, yet it is sold at over $600 unlocked. Is that a 300% markup? Probably not. Though $200 is not the exact price and Apple would obviously get more discount based on the fact they are ordering ... Read More »

Essence of Education

Kids always have fun, especially in school. Maybe it was the time spend not studying and some of the lessons could be so boring. I know I didn’t enjoy all the classes; that is not to say that education is not important. I had often wondered why I had to learn some of the stuff which seemed so unimportant and useless. Yes, I was told that it was the foundation that I should have so that I can learn whatever I wanted later on. But, is that all education is? Learning stuff that you may or may not use in the future? I have heard parents, elders and teachers saying that you need education to get a job, a job that will pay you well so that you have the luxuries that they didn’t have. It will bring you respect and I could go on and on. Good job, money ... Read More »

Give Me Your Soul

Greek Masterpieces - Portrait of Aristotle by ♥ he@rt ♥, on Flickr

And I will give you 10 years of bliss! If you could live 10 years of your life in total bliss – with NO pain – but in the end, not remember any of it – would you do it? via A Happiness Tip From Aristotle | Psychology Today. I was stumbling, after a long time, when I came across this question. And according to Aristotle, you should say no. I would agree with him for various reasons. I am the sum of my experience The individual that I am, is not just a 3 dimensional figure frozen in time. I would have to say that every atom that is present in the universe has its influence on me, and so has every thought that goes through the minds of other people. The interaction between 2 or more objects (living or non-living) would have an impact on who I am and how I ... Read More »
