British Scientist SirStephen Hawking‘ is worried that any extraterrestrial life we find is likely to be a creature out of the movie

‘Predator’.

What is Extraterrestrial life?

Extra means ‘beyond’ and terrestrial means ‘belongs to the earth’.So altogether,it means ‘Life beyond the Earth“.

 

 

Many Scientists disagree with this theory but many others won’t stop looking for them beyond the Earth.Scientists are trying to find out, if the stars have earth-like planets which has life on it.In a Discovery channel documentary, Dr. Hawking suggested that with [………………….

We all talk about Indian culture but first lets understanding  what is culture and types of cultures in India.

 
CULTURE?
 

The word culture is that complex whole which includes knowledge,belief,art,law,morals, customs and any other capabilities and habits acquired by individual as a member of society.Culture of India refers to dharma,beliefs,customs,tradition,languages, ceremonies ,arts,values and the way of life of India and its people.India’s languages, religions,food,clothing differs from place to place within the country.

BASIC FOUNDATION OF INDIAN CULTURE:
 
  1. RELIGIONS: India is the birthplace of Hinduism,Buddhism,Jainism and Sikhism collectively known as Indian religions.Diversity in Indian religion
  2. GREETINGS:  Namaste is a common spoken greeting or salutation in which one hold hands together with a smile to express deep respect .
  3. CUISINE: Indian food is as diverse as India.From salads to sauces,from spices to sensuous,from breads to desserts,Indian cuisine is invariably complex.Different cuisines of india
  4. CLOTHING:Traditional clothing in India greatly varies across different parts of the country and is influenced by local culture,geography,climate and rural/urban setting.

THE CULTURE WHAT WE SEE IN PRESENT SCENARIO:

 Dalai Lama once said ”Open your arms free,get ready to change with the world but donot met go your values“.Most of us believe that today our culture is decaying but who set the culture,we the human beings right?
  •  Today crime against women have increased exponentially.Newspaper daily consist of at least 2 to 3 news related to crime against women which was never our culture.
  • After 65 years of independence people are still judge by their color tone and caste. This is what our culture never teach us.
  • Initially there use to be joint families and people use to live together peacefully.Today there has been a trend of nuclear families where parents often end up living in old age homes .Our culture never allowed this callousness.
  • In recent Delhi gang rape case the victim and her friend were lying naked and helpless on roads in that chilled night but still there was no one to help them and take them to hospital.Since when our society became that level of inhuman.
  • Today Delhi and Mumbai are considered world’s most polluted cities and our culture never taught us to disintegrate our land, water and air .

Modernity does not depend on wearing jeans but it is in your thoughts and acceptance of

new technologies.So,Our culture is not decaying but the mentality of our citizens is deteriorating
 day by day.At last i want to conclude by saying that
“INSTEAD OF CONTINUOUSLY INCREASING OUR SOCIAL QUOTIENT WE SHOULD
FOCUS ON INCREASING OUR EMOTIONAL QUOTIENT

Today is the birthday of Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Born: March 14, 1879, 
Died: April 18, 1955,
Awards: Nobel Prize in Physics, Copley Medal, Max Planck medal, More

He was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect”. The latter was pivotal in establishing quantum theory.

How to Score well in X and XII 

 

Regarding scoring of good marks in Board Exams, it is not so difficult.
You have to stick to few important tips:1. Firstly, study regularly, take out time for at least three subjects in
a day. Work more on those subjects, in which you feel you are weaker than other subjects.2. Do not leave any subject for more than 2-3 days. Every subject should be taken up for study at least in every alternate day. The important and difficult ones may be taken up everyday.

3. Devote at least 6-7 hours for self study.
But do not cut down too much on your sleep and enjoyment. Take out a bit of time for relaxing and entertaining also.
4. Whenever you study, don’t sit for too long continuously, you can also take one or two short breaks of 5-10 minutes during a continuous stretch of 3-4 hrs. of study.
This will help in maintaining your interest.
5. Be in touch with the CBSE previous years papers, sample papers etc. Keep on looking what has been the pattern of CBSE and what type of questions are generally asked. Also refer to their model answers.6. Whenever you give a test in school and obtain marks, just go through your answer sheet seriously and see where marks have been deducted and how can the errors be avoided next time.7. Take proper care of your health and hygiene. Do regular exercise, take more of green vegetables, milk and other nutritious food. Do not get tensed.

8. Although you must stick to NCERT books, but in science, maths, you must do some extra questions also. You can purchase a good book or question bank for that.

9. Be in contact with your teachers and ask them to evaluate yourself.

10. At the end of the year, do at least 8-10 model test papers for each
subject. This will help a lot.

Just keep working towards your Goal and keep on evaluating yourself.

Challenges are high, dreams are new,
The world out there is waiting for you,
Dare to dream, Dare to try,
No goal is too distant, No star too high..

Top Ten Tips For Increasing Concentration

 

1. Start assignments with some curiosity about the material and a positive attitude toward learning.
2. Designate a place where you go only to study. Use proper lighting.
3. Identify your distractions. Find ways to decrease them or to postpone them until study breaks (e.g., taking the phone off the hook, turning off instant messenger).
4. Decrease noises around you while studying. If you need some background music it should be soft. Keep the TV off.
5. Use “active study” techniques: sit straight in a chair at a desk, start out with questions about the material, outline chapters, underline key phrases after readinga section, write notes in margins, ask yourself what you have learned.
6. Divide your work into smaller manageable tasks that can be completed in a short period of time.

Push yourself to complete one small task, then move on to the next task. Focus on one small task at a time.
7. Use times of peak alertness for studying difficult or less interesting topics. When you are tired or hungry concentration will be lowered.
8.When your mind starts to wander come up with some cue words to say to yourself (e.g., “Focus.” “Get back on task.”) to focus your concentration again.
9. Take breaks when you have completed tasks or when you feel concentration has decreased. Breaks should be approximately 10-15 minutes.
10. If you have other assignments or issues on your mind write them down on a “to do” list or take a small step to deal with them. Then get back to focusing on the task at hand.

Study Time Table
  1. Make a realistic time table for your study i.e. the time table should be one, which can be followed. If you have only 6 hours spare for study and you want to devote all those hours for self study or you have made a time table which can not be followed for a longer time, avoid that.
  2. Make a flexible time table for study with some rigidity. For example, if you want to devote 2 hours daily for a particular subject, say science, then try to maintain the time of 2 hours everyday without fixing a rigid time.
  3. Try to stick to your schedules. For example, If you have decided to devote a total of 5 hours for self study, try to stick to that and study at least that much.
  4. The time table should be such that it is open to changes with time. After following the time table for few days, if you feel, overall time period or time period for a particular subject are improper then change them according to your requirements.
  5. Initially, don’t make exhaustive time table for self study. Increase your study timings every week. For example, if you are studying 3 hours in a week, try to increase 15 minutes in first week, 15-20 minutes in next week and so on.
Subject selection after secondary class X
It is one of the most common dilemmas we face in life, i.e. selection of subjects in class XI.
This is the starting of your career and therefore one must take proper care while selecting the subjects.
The selection of subjects depends entirely upon your own aptitude and personal choices.
Before selecting a subject, keep following things in mind:
1. The most important thing in selecting the subject is your OWN APTITUDE.
If you want to take up science in class XI, then judge yourself, did you liked science previously or it was just as usual as other subjects. Which subject was it that you always tried to excel from your heart and you kept working for that also?
It may be the subject you can take upon. The most important thing is selecting a subject is your passion. Which subject you are passionate about or you like the most? Identify the subject in which you always tried to score the highest or were too anxious about it.
2. Then, see your previous TRACK RECORD in the subject you wish to select i.e. JUDGE YOUR CALIBRE. For example, you wish to take biology in class XI, then look out how much did you score previously? If you think you’ve scoredwell then you can go for it.
3. Thirdly, If you’re still confused or you feel that it won’t work, you’ll not be able to decide, then CONSULT YOUR TEACHERS & PARENTS. Try to consult those teachers, who know more about you, your aptitude, your approach towards the subject. If you are thinking of taking Science with Biology (for medical stream), consult your science teacher, what he/she feels about you and your caliber. Sit with your parents and try to resolve the problem.
4. Regarding CAREER OPPORTUNITIES, they are vast in every field, provided you’re into the right field and you excel into it. If you do very well in Science with biology as option, you can go for CPMT or AIIMS (for Doctor) or if you do very well in engineering, you have options open for AIEEE or IIT (Engineer).
If you take up commerce or even arts, options are still available.
For example after taking up commerce, you can opt for the courses of CA, CS, BBA etc.
If you’ve taken up arts, you can opt several competitive administrative examinations.
Some common fields like MBA, Hotel Management, Aviation industry etc. are equally open to all streams.
So, don’t worry about career opportunities. Every field has a unique set of opportunities.
The MOST IMPORTANT THING IS YOU. So, It is you who has to decide (with the help of your teachers/parents) your own abilities and trapped potentials.Whatever you decide, take your own time, think seriously, keeping everything in mind.
BEST WISHES.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:.
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings,
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling
Poetry Analysis by Himanshu Saxena

I have to start off by saying that this is my favorite poem of all time! I think if we could strive to do even half the things he mentions in the poem, we would be far better people. There are so many lessons to be learned from the poem. Let’s analyze them in the hopes that we can come close to meeting their expectations.
The first section of the poem, in my opinion, is about being true to one’s self. There are always going to be people who think differently than you, or misjudge you for one reason or another. I think the poem is saying that we need to rise above this, and do what we know is right and just. Don’t let others provoke you into actions you know are wrong. Know the value of your self worth, but don’t become conceited.

The second section is about overcoming obstacles that get in your path, whether by others, or of your own making. Follow your dreams, but be realistic in the approach. I believe this section is teaching perseverance, to keep going, even when things get rough.

I believe the most important lesson in the third section is to never give up! It is truly hard to get back up after life has beaten you into the ground. It can be done though, if we always believe in ourselves and know that we did it once so we can do it again! This is a very important lesson, and one that we all should take to heart. Kipling knew how hard life can sometimes be, and I think this section of the poem is full of hope for all of us.
The last section has two important lessons. First, that we are all equal. Don’t put yourself above anyone else, but know that you are just as good as everyone else. There are things to be admired in almost everyone if you look hard enough. The second lesson I take from this section, is to never waste time. Make every minute of every day count!
These are certainly lofty standards, but one’s that we should try our best to attain. Read the poem, and really pay attention to what it’s saying. See if you are doing all of the positive things he describes. If not, work on it. I believe this poem is a road map to life, and we just have to learn to read the signs.

Answer:-Its called appropriate balance. If you are a full time student, you need time to be in class, you need time for study (a lot of it), you time for socialization with family, with friends, and you also need time to be alone. You just have to balance everything out. Sometimes the scales get tipped, because of testing , or maybe family responsibilities, but you can readjust within time. However take warning! If you have a relationship, do not let it destroy your education. I have seen this happen many times over. You can have a good relationship while still pursuing your educational goals and objectives, but both of you must come to an agreement on priorities and work together. Both of you will need to give each other 100% moral support in an effort to see each succeeds. If you start tipping the scales in the wrong direction, nobody is going to benefit. Everything should be in moderation and well balanced.
