What do you see when you picture a SCIENTIST? Usually Albert Einstein, a bad hairstyle, in a white lab coat? That is something that occurs to us instantaneously! “Scientists define sciences by pushing past the bounds of human knowledge and breaking down the thought barriers of time”. We celebrate them as geniuses who have upended our understanding of the cosmos, the planets and of ourselves. By and large, the science and technology field is still arguably male dominated. It’s a rare possibility that we would visualise a woman surrounded with equipment, copying notes while she closely observes the chemical reactions in a…

“ Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drink” This has been a cruel irony for the mariners or for a matter of fact to any thirsty person who has ever gazed upon a sparkling blue ocean.   The United Nations predicts that by 2025, 14% of the global population will suffer water shortage. In addition, climate change, decreased rainfall and rising temparatures is expected to wreak havoc on urban water supplies. Draught conditions exacerbates fresh water supply, and people tend to look to the oceans for answers. It is after all, a seemingly inexhaustible supply. A growing trend?…

Our Oceans - A Plastic Soup

Hello there! Yes, you! You just ignored the advertisement on the television set -  the iDEA 4G commercial.  You looked past it like every other issue that is left unaddressed! Was the commercial not catchy? Was it just another beach scene where  ‘auntyji’ tosses some litter and a random girl educates and sensitives her on the issue of keeping clean?  Unless an issue costs our lives, we do not pay attention. We fail to realise that the solution to a problem starts with awareness, research and the measures to contain it!  Source:https://cbsnews1.cbsistatic.com/hub/i/r/2018/12/16/3e692fa0-da0f-400d-bf83 dcd6df8d1343/thumbnail/1200x630/0bd72f0ca5e9ef48dece036b13b5406d/plasticmain.jpg 12 year old Pune based Haaziq was…

Automated Journalism: Did a Robot Write This?

The rise of machines taking over the human world is no longer a dystopian dream. The dread that is associated with robots taking over the world is a reality from which there’s no escape. A great example is the manufacturing sector, which had long been a supplier of well-paying jobs and was is now transformed by the introduction of machines. But what about the white-collar jobs in the information technology sector? Will the emergence of machines have an impact on professions in journalism and media? Automated journalism is shaking up the traditional journalism and the role of a news reporter…

TAKE TIME OUT TO DO NOTHING

The most effective means to remain in touch with our real self and to maintain a sense of identity is to indulge in reflection and introspection. The consequences of not taking time out to pause and reflect are psychologically wide-ranging.    "If we were not so single-minded about keeping our lives moving, and for once could perhaps a huge silence  might interrupt this sadness of never understanding ourselves and of threatening ourselves with death."   Poet Pablo Naruda’s lines from the poem ‘Keeping Quiet’ aptly describe our existence in the hyper-real world where we all seem to be continually pushing…

For that, it is important that workplace potential is harnessed optimally and employees are given a conducive environment to develop their creative potential. If ever a proof of the same was required, then Google’s 20 percent program should settle it. Google allows its developers to spend 20% of a working day on side projects. The aim is to elicit, nurture and advance creativity and innovation by allowing space and time for innovation to employees. And if…

Media Laws and Freedom of Speech

Media Laws and Freedom of Speech Tweet. Post. Express - whether it be in print or digitally and no one can harm you. But this wasn't so before 2015. In 2015, in a landmark judgement the Supreme Court struck down the controversial section 66A of the Information and Technology Act, 2000 which allowed the state to arrest people for posting offensive content. The incident that led up to this judgement was when in 2012, two young girls were arrested when one of them wrote a Facebook post criticizing the bandh following the death of Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray, while…

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IMAGINATION REDEFINED!

  Nomination for the 20th century’s wonder of the industrial revolution will certainly be bagged by ‘Additive Manufacturing’. Additive Manufacturing (AM) needs to be seriously evaluated as a complement to existing and traditional manufacturing methods. An overview of Subtractive Manufacturing The traditional subtractive manufacturing continues to dominate major production and assembly lines such as automobiles, FMCG, electronics and many more.
