Resiquick Adhesive ad - Varun Dhawan

 

In a new ad by Astral adhesive Varun Dhawan appears in an adhesive ad named Resiquick. The ad indirectly taunts Fevi Quick whose tag line is “ Chutki mein chikaye” on the other hand this ad says “ Chipkaye nahi Jode” . Till now we have seen concept based adhesive ads which were very successful and worth remembering like Fevicol ad “ Dum lagake haisha” or “ Pakde rehna , Chhodna nahi” there was no requirement of such known face for this ad. If the product is good, there is less need for promotion by such big celebrities. The ad is humorous and tickles you but a good concept without Varun Dhawan could have been more effective and less costly. Good luck for the product.

Gulf oil Advertisement by M.S Dhoni

In a recent ad by gulf engine oil company the advertisement shows how people are trying to violate traffic laws because they want to reach early but actor waits and tells that if you use the oil you can remain ahead at all the times. The ad shows how your engine efficiency can improve but nothing in the advertisement shows that the people are wrong while violating traffic rules. Such ad may be loved by people because of Dhoni but the message is not citizen centric.

Jawwad Patel of Hyderabad has created a device named " Dewdrop" which refills itself. This 3D printed design apparatus uses moisture from air to create water. He is the 1st person in Asia to make such device. The device produces pure drinking water from thin humid air. This technology is based on Thompson’s effect. The water present in the air is condensed with the help of an on-board computer and sensor.. A fan absorbs humid air and transfers it to the condenser. The water is purified by passing it through several layers which removes impurities. The development costs Rs 12,000 and will be available at cheaper cost when produced in bulk. This device can attract 1.8 liter of water per hour from air. This instrument is powered by 12 V battery and 6000mAh Li-ion battery which is rechargeable and it can work on solar device.

Origin

As per the present status of knowledge and thought process of mankind is concerned, there is a philosophical barrier about the infinity of the Universe, both in space and time.

To understand these theories, a remarkable astronomical phenomenon, called Red Shift of Doppler Effect must be known.

Doppler Effect and Red Shift: According to Doppler Effect, the frequency of wave appears to be higher when source approaches the observer and frequency lowers when the source recedes from the observer. In the spectrum of visible light, red has the lowest frequency and longest wave length while violet has the highest frequency and shortest wavelength. It has been observed that light coming from the galaxies shifts to the red end of the spectrum. This is known as Red Shift. Assuming it to be true all galaxies must be receding away from us in all directions. This proportionate increase in red shift of the galaxies with increasing distance shows that matter in the Universe is in a state of rapid expansion. This idea of rapid expansion is central to all the modern of the origin of the Universe.

 

CELESTIAL BODIES

Galaxies

A galaxy is a huge congregation of millions of stars held together by its own gravitational field. On structural analysis, three basic types of galaxies have been indentified:

  1. Spiral Galaxies: Greater concentration of stars in the centre, old ones near the centre and younger in the arms. Our galaxy, the Milky way and Andromeda are examples of spiral galaxies.
  2. Elliptical Galaxies: The most numerous (about 2/3 of all galaxies) consist mostly of very stars.
  3. Irregular Galaxies: Comprise about 1/10 of all galaxies, mostly young starts.
  • The two nearest galaxies to our Milky way are the Large Magellanic cloud and the Small Magellanic cloud. Our galaxy, the Milky way and the Andromeda galaxy are the two largest galaxies in a cluster of some 23 galaxies, Known as the Local Group.

   Nebulae

       These are distant stellar systems of luminous bodies, made up of gas and dust particles. ORION Nebulae is situated in Milky Way also crab nebulae.

  Comets

     There are bodies of frozen dust and gases which have their homes in cold outer fringe of the solar system. Their head is formed by evaporation of solid ice particle when the comet approaches the sun. They have eccentric path or orbit but a definite periodicity like Halley ’s Comet is seen every 76 years. Its tail is away from the sun.

 Meteors

These are small solid matter which, when coming into the atmosphere of the earth, burn out due to friction. While burning, they emit light and hence called Shooting Star.

List of meteors are given in this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_meteor_showers

      Stars

A star is an astronomical object containing gas and plasma bind by its gravitational force capable of producing its own light. Stars account for 98% of the matter in the galaxy. Star forming matter is rich in hydrogen and helium.

Life of a star

A star has a definite evolutionary cycle and they observe a sequential change in their size, mass and gravity with time.

  1. A Proto Star: The formation of star begins with compression of gases and dust. Compression generates heat which in turn causes hydrogen (H2) to be converted into helium in a nuclear fusion.

Nuclear Fusion Explained: Watch this video

http://uploadmyvideoz.com/embbededvideo.aspx?videoid=5338

  1. Red Giant: As the star starts aging due to fusion reaction depleting hydrogen present on the star, helium core becomes heavy resulting in swelling. The star starts to expand and become redder for example  well-known Red Giant star Mira, or Omicron Ceti So, according to its size the object is named Red Giant.
  2. Novae and Super Novae:  A giant star phase may end in novae or supernovae stage. These are stars whose brightness increases suddenly by 10 to 20 times magnitude or more due to partial or outright explosion in a star. In a supernovae the brightness increases more than 20 times.
  3. Black Holes:  A black hole is a region in space which has a concentration of 1016 grams/cm3 causes super density giving it high gravitational effect under which not even an electromagnetic ray can escape.

What Congress should do?

 

Congress lost the 2014 election due to Modi Wave which had the strength to convince people that development and Modi go hand in hand. A man capable of getting elected as Chief Minister, thrice in a row and Prime Minister in his maiden attempt despite negative image of being a government alleged for inaction during Godhra riots 2002. People voted for development, robust growth and for a man gaining position from mediocre background. They believed that India is getting gripped by corruption, women safety and incompetency to handle foreign and internal security issues such as Pakistan, Naxalism, terrorism etc. People voted for security, peace and development. After 4 years of government was not able to achieve as expected. Loss of soldiers on LoC in combat with terrorists, unrest in Kashmir, unclear effects of demonetization, unclear statistics and most of all tagging and branding region on incidents have been main issues on which government has failed.

                                      Now the strategy for 2019 elections for congress should be strong enough to keep BJP out from getting majority. Its looks like public opinion are still favoring a certain party for 2019 elections. Now what Congress needs?

  1. A good leadership is the need of the hour for Congress but they have no choice due to historical reasons and over dependent on leadership habits. Rahul Gandhi still needs to learn “How to Answer” without any script or reply in more diplomatic manner. One man can make difference was proved in 2014 and congress needs a man as capable as Modi to make people believe in their strategy.
  2. More focus on future prospects need to be made rather than playing critics card. Congress needs to revisit its strategy in giving more positive prospects of future especially in case of corruption, economic growth and women empowerment. A card just like 2008 loan waiver is needed for making position of congress strong.
  3. Speaking carefully is the need of the hour. Reckless speeches and comments by top leaders make things worse for any party. Sometimes this is what party needs for publicity but it has negative impact which backfire just like Gujrat elections in 2017. Congress has some sophisticated speakers but sometimes they try to hit on personal terms or religious bias which in return harms image of congress.
  4. Muslim support is very necessary for congress to win any election. The sentiments of Muslims need to be understood but in totality. In past years Muslim man and Muslim women are seen diverging because of separate interests. On one have minority needs to be taken care but women empowerment is also an important issue in India.  Congress should showcase sensitivity towards women issues especially security issue.
  5. A grand scheme for poor, farmers and youth who become the base of election. MSP, reservation and waiver are some old strategies which work when political party is in power. If you have to shake the roots, you need something heavy. Kashmir alone cannot win you election. Persona of PM Narendra Modi alone negates many allegations. An untouched issue family planning can give advantage and heal image of congress. Population for development is need of the hour. Giving skill means nothing giving job is all that matters.

       Lucknow: An advertising and Printing Hub

 

Advertising has now become a 600 billion dollar plus industry in around the world and it is increasing rapidly in the field of social media. Facebook, twitter and google are the main gainers with digital advertising. According to a survey a person now averagely spends 97 minutes on mobile which is even more than television 83 minutes while print media gets only 33 minutes of time. With increasing video and digital advertising person tends to get all the news, information and knowledge through mobile. So in future Google , facebook, twitter, Instagram will get more and more advertising compared to print media. But another fact also remains that many business owners still trust print advertising for better impact in a single go. Lucknow is the capital of most populous state of India with many newspaper readers. Here print media is still one of the most important sources of advertising. Here people still believe in reading and trust offline media.

                                      Here you get variety of print media such as flyers, poster, pamphlet, flex and newspaper printing is very common in Lucknow. The demand for flex has risen vastly in last decade. The rates of flex printing went down from Rs 24 per square feet in 2010 to Rs 7 per square feet in 2017. We now see digital holdings for video display ads. Talking to Mr. Anwar from Sai Printers, Aliganj, we come to know about customized large format poster printing. A new trend is growing among youngsters for gifting large printed photos with sizes varying for 19 inch length (A3 print) to 43 inches in length (A0 print). The most common size is 13 x 19 inches and 24 x 36 inch prints which are durable on thick paper and canvas. Personalized newspaper for loved once is also a new idea available in Lucknow. Mr. Anwar provided us with great deal of personalized products such as t- shirts, pillows, caps, mugs and newspaper for corporate and individual needs. So go on and be a star!!!
