Delhi's 55,000 auto-rickshaw drivers plan strike on Tuesday against the government directive for re-allotment of drivers' badges to them. M S Mansoori, general secretary of the Rashtriya Rajdhani Shetra Tin-Pahiya Chalak Union, Delhi complained that around 10 years ago, they were issued temporary driver badges after they had paid Rs 400 and attended two-day class. The government had promised to replace these with permanent ones. But now the government is again asking them to pay another Rs 600 and appear in a fresh test. And, isn’t it shameful? "Why should we keep on paying money again and again? Can't the process be carried out in a more planned manner? We can't afford to waste money like this," he added.
The auto-rickshaw drivers have also accused the government of making arbitrary laws which affect them without even consulting them. "The transport department makes laws in air-conditioned rooms and we have to abide those laws," added Mansoori.
Though social networking commentator Laurel Papworth doubt the fact, researchers at Canada's York University said that If you are obsessed with your status updates and picture uploads on Facebook, you are probable an online narcissist and your behaviour is related to egotism and low self-esteem.
"They probably show that narcissist trait offline as well, but online, they update a lot and always write about where they are or who they're with," News.com.au quoted Australian Facebook researcher Julian Cole as saying.
However, Laurel Papworth said this was not true. "I would expect that to be true of a broadcast site like YouTube or MySpace, but Facebook is where you communicate with your inner circle of friends and it mimics your everyday behaviour," Papworth said. Instead, users were "trying to show that they feel loved by friends writing comments back," she added. And, I believe that most social media users, in their close circles, follow one common online behavior: "I-promise-to-listen-I-promise-to-respond-to-your-questions".
Google dedicated its Google doodle today for Buckyball. One 'o' of Google converted into a "Buckyball" and the Google doodle informs that its 25th anniversary of Buckyball. Buckyball logo is spinning, today, on the Google search engine's homepage. In the mid of Google logo a yellow ball appears and then it turns into a Buckyball. Buckyball are also amazing desktoy which keeps you busy and entertained.
Go to the website Nerdum and you can know in details what are Buckyballs. The site states NASA's Spitzer Telescope has discovered, what astronomers call Buckyballs, in space for the first time.
"The Buckminsterfullerine molecule was first discovered 25 years ago by a group of scientists at Rice university, Texas, and named after the architect Richard Buckminster Fuller, noted for popularising the geodesic dome. A fullerine is any molecule made entirely of carbon."
Buckyballs, also called Fullerenes, are carbon molecules arranged in a spherical shape with geometric patterns similar to those found on soccer balls. Buckyballs and quantum dots are two nanotools useful in medicine. A Buckyball is a soccer ball-shaped molecule that's 1 nanometer wide. The Doctors could use Buckyballs and quantum dots in gene therapy to send genes into human cells.
A: Thank-you. So glad you're enjoying this as much as I am. My pleasure.
However, you say:
...Don't mention who you're. Anyway, what's your real name?!
So how could I possibly tell you my real name? :-) Some mystique goes a long way, and I find it's much more interesting to let my collection, and these beautiful women reflect my loves, life and ultimately who I am. Mais oui?
The downside of it is that this only small data package that it lets through, hangs the system for the whole of 9 months! One last sentence: "Absolute horror!"
