BE SAFE AND ALERT - NEW FRAUD HAPPENING IN INDIA



Please pass around to your family and friends !!!MUST SHARE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Given below is happend to someone & he has narrted this in his own words :

" I received a call from someone claiming that he was from my mobile Service provider and he asked
me to shutdown my phone for 2 hours for 3G update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting,
I did not question, but just shut down my cell phone.

After 45 minutes I felt very suspicious since the caller did not even introduce his name.
I quickly turned on my cell phone and saw several missed calls from my family members
and the others were from the number that had called me earlier –

I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worried asking me whether I am safe.
My parents told me that they had received a call from someone claiming that they had me with them
and asking for money to let me free. The call was so real and my parents even heard 'my voice' crying
out loud asking for help.

My father was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer.
I told my parents that I am safe and asked them to lodge a police report.

Right after that I received another call from the guy asking me to
shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which I refused to do and hung up.

They kept calling my cell phone until the battery had run down. I myself
lodged a police report and I was informed by the officer that there were many such
scams reported. MOST of the cases reported that the victim had already

transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money. Be
careful as this kind of scam might happen to any of us!!!

Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you are asked to
shut down your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND!

Your family or friends might receive the same call. "

Be Safe and Stay Alert!

RETIREMENT AGE - Cabinet decision to increase reti...




A proposal to increase the retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years came to the Cabinet on Thursday but a decision was deferred. The government might make the announcement in the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address, his last before general elections in 2014. The ministry of personnel, public grievances and pensions has proposed an increase in retirement age of government employees from 60 to 62 years, top sources confirmed.

There are around five million central government employees in India. The previous occassion the government raised the retirement age of central government employees was in 1998, from 58 to 60 years. The move is meant to ease the financial burden on the government in terms of its pension liabilities, sources said.

The retirement age of professors in all central universities was recently raised to 65 years. D L Sachdev, national secretary of the All India Trade Union Congress, said his union was totally against the increase of the retirement age beyond 60. It would hurt the youth, especially when the government is doing nothing to create jobs for them, Sachdev said.

Congress-affiliated Indian National Trade Union Congress national president Sanjeeva Reddy said his union had been demanding increase in the retirement age to 62 years and would welcome it.

Minister for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanaswami had ruled out an increase in the retirement age to a question in Parliament in the winter session this year. An official in the ministry, when asked, refused to speak about it.

North Pole drifts east due to climate change

Atmospheric and terrestrial water storage changes have made only a “minor” contribution

Around 2005, accelerated melting of polar ice sheet and mountain glaciers, together with rising sea level, caused the North Pole to drift towards east, marking an “abrupt departure” from the direction recorded over the past century. Accelerated rates of ice melting in Greenland and Antarctica have been observed since 2005-2006 and thus coincide with the abrupt change in polar shift.

“When mass is lost in one part of a spinning sphere, its spin axis will tilt directly towards the position of the loss,” Erik Ivins, a geophysicist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California was quoted as saying in Nature.

The melting ice has also increased the rate of drift from about two milliarcseconds (MAS) per year during the period 1982-2005 to about nine MAS per year post 2005, a study published recently in theGeophysical Research Letters journal states.

The changes were recorded by satellite gravity measurements by the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission, jointly sponsored by U.S. and Germany.

GRACE provides monthly gravity field data that correlates with mass changes for the entire Earth, and from this, it is possible to extract the precise contributions from individual sources. This information helped the scientists in pinning down the cause of abrupt pole drift in 2005 to “variations in climate system”.

Atmospheric and terrestrial water storage changes have made only a “minor” contribution to the shift in Pole direction and rate. The researchers from the University of Texas at Austin consider this study as a reaffirmation of the increased ice melting at poles and mountain glaciers in recent years. This is borne from the fact that mass movement in solid earth takes place over long time scales.

Since earth monitoring using satellites has begun only during the last few years, there is no way of knowing the rate and amount of ice-sheet melting in the past. However, data on polar motion is available, thus making it possible to extrapolate the polar ice-sheet melting in the past.

Green energy from blue sea

Offshore wind farms to produce power for Kerala

A few years from now, wind farms located at sea could be churning out clean energy to feed the starved power grid in Kerala.

The Agency for Non-conventional Energy and Rural Technology (ANERT) is preparing to take up a wind monitoring study to identify potential offshore sites. The project is to be launched with the assistance of the Dutch government.

The Netherlands has made significant progress in harnessing wind as a renewable energy source. The country has set a target to build 6,000 MW of offshore wind power by 2020, mostly from the North Sea. During a recent discussion held with officials in Kerala, representatives of the Dutch government offered to collaborate in developing offshore wind farms.

ANERT director M. Jayaraju told The Hindu that the study would be followed by a pilot project, subject to a policy decision by the government. The project, he said, would be launched with the necessary safeguards to ensure that the offshore platforms did not interfere with fishing activities. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) has identified the Kerala-Konkan coast as one of the potential sites for offshore wind farms in India.

Offshore wind farms are preferred because of the non-availability of land in densely populated coastal areas with high wind potential. The added efficiency of offshore wind power is another advantage over onshore wind turbines.

ANERT is also preparing to take up a wind-monitoring study to assess the potential for land-based wind farms in the coastal regions of the State. The study would be carried out at four locations with the help of the Centre for Wind Energy Technology (C-WET), a Chennai-based autonomous research and development institution under MNRE.

C.K. Chandrabose, Joint Technical Director, Wind Energy project, ANERT, said the year-long studies would generate real-time, on-site data on the wind potential of offshore and coastal regions in Kerala. The base data would be a crucial factor in attracting independent power producers to set up wind farms, he said.

ANERT is also gearing up to update the available wind monitoring data at potential sites on land. The total technically-feasible onshore wind potential of the State is estimated to be around 800 MW, limited to 17 locations in Palakkad, Idukki, and Thiruvananthapuram, where the wind speed is above 15 km/hr.

The main windy areas in the State are the eastern mountainous regions of Idukki district bordering Tamil Nadu and the elevated areas in the Palakkad gap. Ponmudi in Thiruvananthapuram is another potential site.

Mr. Chandrabose said monitoring stations equipped to generate wind data at a height of 80 metres had been installed at Kanjikode in Palakkad, Chelamala in Malappuram, and Pullikanam, Vandiperiyar and Kulathumedu in Idukki.

Meanwhile, two new wind farms, slated to come up soon at Kanjikode and Ramakkalmedu in Idukki will augment the State’s total installed capacity of wind energy. While the farm at the Kinfra Park in Kanjikode will add 22 MW, the one at Ramakkalmedu being set up by NTPC will add another 20 MW to the current installed capacity of 34 MW generated by KSEB at Kanjikode and independent power producers at Attappady and Ramakkalmedu.

Keep cool with summer fruits

A vendor displays coconut kernel, ready for consumption.Summer months may be harsh on people in Vijayawada, but it is the best time ever to savour some of the best fruits available. Most colourful and in different flavours is the King of fruits – Mango. Whether raw or ripe, mango leaves a lingering taste in the mouth. Another colourful fruit is the watermelon with a green outer skin and red inside with a lots of watery sweet juice to keep you really cool even in the hottest summer day like Friday, when the temperature touched 44 Degrees Celsius. Another cool customer is palmera fruit for which people wait for a year to swallow the cool spongy jelly filled with water as soon as the toddy taper cuts the top. Yellowish Cashew fruit again with an unique taste and sometime sticky, is a big hit in the dry upland rural areas and have flooded the Vijayawada market. How can we forget the most sought-after tender coconut with a large reservoir of sweet water and occasionally a jelly-like kernel inside? Coconut flowers are yet another attraction.

Are your children watching these cartoons?

Cartoons have been around since Walt Disney gave birth to them with his pencil. Since then, there have been few artists who have treaded into the unknown and conjured some rather controversial cartoons and characters that’ve ruffled few feathers the world over.


Cartoons have been around since Walt Disney gave birth to them with his pencil. Since then, there have been few artists who have treaded into the unknown and conjured some rather controversial cartoons and characters that’ve ruffled few feathers the world over.

Let’s have a look at them!
1. Family Guy



Seth MacFarlane and his genius creation, Family Guy has got the whole world bowled over. A cartoon series loosely based on the Simpson’s structure, Family Guy delves into a much more twisted and obscure form of humour revolving around racism, gore, drugs, sexism and such. If that wasn’t enough, it’s loaded with some highly controversial characters. For instance, the toddler, Stewie, is a highly intellectual yet sadistic kid who shows homosexual and cross-dressing tendencies once in a while. There is a wife who is a masochistic in bed, a pervert neighbour, a daughter who’s a reject, and a talking dog who dates women and lusts after his owner’s wife! Yes, that’s how twisted they are.
2. South Park



Yet another cartoon series of today, South Park is loaded with an overdose of black humour, satire, and everything in between. Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park came into being in 1997. It revolves around the lives of four teenagers and their dealings with life’s issues. Filled with crude language and obscenity, it pokes fun at new emerging religions like Scientology, etc. and upon other sensitive subjects. South Park has been under the limelight for all the wrong reasons like satirizing Prophet Mohammed, making fun of dyslexic and schizophrenic people to name a few!
3. Speedy Gonzales



A Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies character by Warner Brothers, Speedy Gonzales is ‘the fastest mouse in all Mexico’ and dresses and talks like a Mexican villager. Conceived in 1955, right during the peak of colour and racial discrimination, Speedy proved to be the perfect description of a stereotypical Mexican of those days. Airing of Speedy Gonzales brought upon a huge uproar among the Mexicans residing in America and the series was taken off several times until the discrimination curbed down. As of today, Speedy cartoons are followed by a disclaimer stating “The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the WB (Warner Bros) view of society, these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as to claim these prejudices never existed.”
4. Song of the South



Walt Disney was known to hide sexual Easter eggs in his cartoons, or do something oddly quirky to catch the on-lookers eyeballs, and he did the same with Songs of the South. Produced by Disney in 1946, it revolved around black slaves and their masters and an adventure they embark on. Unfortunately, the movie was made during the peak of Negro slavery and racism. It was caught in a tornado of controversy all thanks to its sensitive content. The movie never saw an official release and the DVD release is heavily edited.
5. Happy Tree Friends



A brilliant series from Mondo Mini Shows, Happy Tree Friends comprises of episodes lasting one to seven minutes and there’s only one thing that splatters in this one; blood, blood, and some more blood. Happy Tree Friends has a bunch of cute animals living in a civilized set-up, and they undergo a series of unfortunate events that turn them into gory, bloody and horrifying creatures. To put it in simple words, it’s equivalent to watching a Hello Kitty cartoon based on SAW! It’s adorably repulsive and grotesque at the same time!
6. Bugs Bunny



Probably one of the funniest characters from Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, Bugs Bunny is the only one other than Mickey Mouse to have a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. But yet again, Bugs isn’t what he looks like. Beneath the ridiculously funny bunny things lies a twisted rabbit with some racial issues. Bugs Bunny has been portrayed as a racially abusive person in numerous episodes taking jabs at blacks, Asians, Eskimos and tonnes others. If we dig deeper, there have been traces of dozens of Bugs’ episodes being pulled off air for being too controversial!
7. Donald Duck



Who would have thought this duck with his crazy antics would be a controversial figure, yet one of Walt Disney’s flagship characters is charged with the same allegations like the others in the list. If memory, would serve you right there have been many episodes depicting Donald Duck’s past of him being in the army during World War II. Those episodes proved to be a subtle racial propaganda with Donald dreaming of being Hitler and taking control of the Nazi army and so on. And this is just one instance from the few controversial episodes that were aired during its time!
