10 Lifestyle Habits of Successful Musicians

The manner a musician moves is thought to reveal a lot about him or her. Music is a way of life for successful musicians. These ten lifestyle habits are some of the keys that the great ones have in common.

Exercise Daily

Keeping your body in good form is essential for having a creative mind. The health of some of the most successful artists is credited with their musicianship. Many people feel that jogging, going to the gym, yoga, and other activities are beneficial to their musical careers. Make sure the workout you pick will have no detrimental consequences on your chosen instrument (i.e. making your hands or throat sore).

Eat Healthy

A healthy diet can help you have a clear mind and a responsive body. Make sure you’re eating a well-balanced diet rich in nutritious foods to ensure you’re performing at your best. Wherever possible, minimize your intake of processed foods. Above all, find out what works for you. No additional sugar is a motto for some individuals. For some, avoiding salt is the way to go. Practice with eliminating specific foods from your diet for a day or two to find what works best for you.

Practice Daily

This is self-evident to any musician who has reached a high degree of proficiency. On a hectic day, even 15 minutes of practice time may be incredibly beneficial. Prioritize quality above quantity, and ensure that you enter your practice space with a clean mind.

Seek Out A Teacher

While it’s tempting to absorb everything you can from YouTube videos, studying with an expert teacher provides essential knowledge. Find an instructor with whom you have a strong relationship and whose playing you like. A competent instructor will undoubtedly provide you with resources that will continually push your playing to a higher level and at a faster rate than you could achieve on your own.

Develop Your Sense Of Rhythm

Every musician is able to keep the band running instead of having to halt every time a misstep was heard by learning to stay with the flow and not falter because of playing the incorrect note. Keeping the band together is a crucial skill, and honing your sense of rhythm can help you achieve that. Using a metronome can also be beneficial.

Work On A Solo Performance Piece

One of the most important ways to improve your musicality, according to virtuoso vocalist Bobby McFerrin, is to select a challenging composition and study it well. This will expand your repertoire and provide you with a variety of techniques that you may use in improvisation.

Learn The Rudiments

Scales, arpeggios, paradiddles, voice scans, and other foundational exercises are essential for all artists. Each instrument has its own set of fundamental exercises that you should learn. You’ll be well prepared to handle music provided to you by composers once you’ve learned all of your major and minor scales and arpeggios, which may take some time. You can quit practicing these exercises once you’ve spent enough time with them since they’ll be imprinted in your musical vocab.

Study Musical Style

The majority of musicians do not confine their skills to a single style. It’s crucial to listen to and study music from other civilizations in order to achieve a synthesis in your performance. Ray Charles regarded himself as a cross between traditional gospel and modern R&B. Every artist is a culmination of all they’ve ever heard and practiced.

Apply Knowledge From Other Instruments

If you’re a trumpet player, listening to and learning anything played by a violinist is a fantastic idea. Learn a piece from the guitar canon if you’re a pianist. This will allow you to view music in a new light.

If You Are An Instrumentalist Sing! If You Are A Singer Play An INstrument!

Make it a point to sing along with whatever you play. This is how you may hone your hearing and learn to hear things before playing them. Many good improvisers have a large repertoire of licks and phrases that they can remember instantly from memory. This is a skill that may be learned via singing and practise. The piano or guitar is used by the majority of western composers and singer/songwriters. These chordal instruments serve as a foundation for learning how to read music. No matter what instrument you play, using your voice and playing chordal instruments are two of the most useful musical growth tools.

The Challenges Faced By Women in The Workplace

You’re in a meeting and the inquiry “Are you hitched?” or “Do you plan on having kids?” is tossed at you. You’re likely considering how your own arrangements identify with the capacities you can bring to the association. Regardless of whether the enlisting chief just needs to become acquainted with you on an individual level, the meeting isn’t the perfect spot to do as such. Likewise, for what reason aren’t folks asked exactly the same thing? Individual plans ought not be talked about on the grounds that they may imperil your shots at handling your fantasy profession.

Individual plans ought not be examined on the grounds that they may risk your shots at handling your fantasy vocation. Luckily, a few social government assistance associations, like the United Nations, are bringing issues to light about this issue all throughout the planet and vowing to kill sexual orientation predisposition in the work environment.

Social and Cultural factor.

Despite the fact that we’ve come a long way in history by gaining the right to work and vote, there is still gender bias in the workplace – whether it’s a man benefiting more from small talk than women, the office temperature being set to the average male comfort level, or a strong woman being labeled as “a b*tch.”

Men are dynamically sharing more neglected work in the “second shift,” yet ladies keep on enduring the worst part of home tasks and face substantially more breaks from family requests during their generally compelled working hours.

Being a human female and being a-lady are two exceptionally unmistakable things. The second is a social term. Ladies have muddled social, social, and individual narratives, not just organic creatures with actual highlights that vary from guys of similar species. Ladies’ and men’s lives, work, and bodies are not at all like such an extent that it’s protected to say we live in two universes. It’s useful to consider human social orders partitioned into two societies: his and hers. Ladies are bicultural along these lines. This implies that ladies are naturally introduced to a general public that couple of guys know about. Ladies comprehend the principles of our own portion of the world just as the guidelines of the other portion of the world since we are more in touch with one another.

Hidden Challenges

With regards to progressing in the working environment and in numerous different parts of society ladies keep on going up against deterrents. This is the reason, in the wake of the Women’s March on Washington (seriously! ), We’ve additionally incorporated a couple of activities that pioneers who are ready to be innovative and make room at the table for ladies to prevail at work should take.

Gender Pay Gap.

The gender pay gap is a hot topic in today’s workplace, with figures indicating that “women receive 76 cents on the dollar when compared to men.” Is it because we, as women, are more accommodating and less likely to speak up? Or the fact that men are still considered to be the breadwinners (how antiquated! )? Whatever the cause, being a woman will almost always result in a lower wage than a guy seeking for the same job.

Woman MBA graduates were paid $4,600 not as much as men in their first occupation after graduation, even subsequent to representing related knowledge, time since graduation, work level, industry, and topographical region.

Ascending the corporate ladder.

Young female experts face more noteworthy difficulties in propelling their professions, as they should work more enthusiastically than their male partners to acquire consideration or praise. Take a look at the top chiefs of the most notable associations, and you’ll see a typical topic: they’re all folks! The reason for this is obscure, yet there is a far and wide insight in many businesses that guys advance quicker and ladies are respected ‘inept,’ in any event, whenever they haven’t been allowed the opportunity to substantiate themselves.

Sexual Harassment.

Sexual Harassment is as yet an inescapable issue, with no less than one-fourth of ladies detailing some type of work environment badgering. Managers experience the ill effects of expanded non-attendance, high occupation turnover, and low usefulness and commitment because of this deceptive conduct. Separately, ladies feel troubled, restless, or surrender their positions with expectations of forestalling further badgering.

Appearance

For what reason is a lady’s appearance evaluated more brutally than a man’s? ‘ Whether it’s about clothing, body type, or cosmetics… Ladies are once in a while chastised for not looking cleaned enough, with the far and wide presumption that on the off chance that they aren’t wearing beautifying agents or high heels, they couldn’t care less about their positions.

Others may accept a woman is making a decent attempt on the off chance that she dresses her best and gives close consideration to the complexities of her appearance.’ It’s hard to find some kind of harmony between looking clean and expert while yet not showing up excessively cleaned or unkempt.

Pregnancy Discrimination.

Segregation can take the state of rude comments about an individual’s physical or ailment made by senior authorities, customers, friends, or clients. Bosses may diminish a female worker’s functioning hours, pay, or advantages, decline to advance her, or power her to get some much needed rest, in addition to other things (paid or neglected).

Ego conflict

Women in places of force are as often as possible stood up to by a boastful person who will not follow a lady’s orders — seems like stone age men gibberish, isn’t that so? Tragically, imbalance like this actually wins in the present work environment. A few guys would disparage a lady or address her like she is uneducated (when, truly, we presumably know more than them, yet we let them brag in their magnificence thinking they have the high ground). The best way to battle this is to disregard the downer and attempt to convince them to adjust their psyches so they can believe the solid woman and quit battling with her.

When on period

Women everywhere on the world have essentially once in their life have been liable to bias when on their periods. At the point when they show feelings like displeasure or bothering, they are ridiculed by remarks like, “quit objecting. Is it true that you are on your periods? ” Ladies go through overwhelming actual torment while on their periods. An exemplary illustration of ordinary sexism is male representatives considering ladies taking leaves while bleeding as a pardon not to come to work.

Favoritism in the workplace

Do you work in a male-dominated business and believe your boss favors one of your male coworkers? They’re usually joking around about the current football craze or debating the latest technical breakthrough, but you only talk to your boss about work-related subjects. If you want to see if you’re being treated unfairly, start a conversation about something you both care about. You can bet that your gut hunch was true if it was soon dismissed.

Inconsistent work-life

A work-life balance is another notable problem that today’s working women encounter. Work demands often take a toll on their personal lives, and vice versa. After countless nights of going late at the workplace to finish a crucial project, family members often feel neglected. On the other hand, because they have to leave work on time to pick up their children from their after-school activities, mothers find themselves in the same dead-end situation years later.

Shockingly, this is now and again self-delivered; to break out of it, we need to more readily sort out our time and focus on our destinations.

Conclusion

Individuals the whole way across the world are discussing progress and building a climate where everybody is dealt with decently. In any case, for what reason does it’s anything but a stop with ladies? Can any anyone explain why women are relied upon to find some kind of harmony among work and home while guys are required to accommodate the family? While a few men have ventured up to help ladies in their goals, for what reason is the expression “feminists” related with such aggression and hatred? It’s previous opportunity to expose harmful manliness and teach individuals about women’s liberation’s objective of shutting sexual orientation abberations and accomplishing political, monetary, individual, and social correspondence.

Deep Bar and Double Cage Rotors

What is the need of Deep-Bar and Double-Cage Rotor?

Conventional Squirrel Cage motors suffer from the disadvantages of low starting torque because of low rotor  resistance. The starting torque can be increased by using the bar material of higher resistivity. However high rotor resistance reduces the full-load speed, increases rotor ohmic loss and lower efficiency. Therefore in order to achieve high starting torque without effecting the efficiency, the rotor resistance is made higher at the time of starting & low under normal operating conditions. In wound rotor induction motors these conditions are met  by connecting external resistance in rotor circuit at the time of starting & resistances are cut out in steps as the motor attains its normal speed. In squirrel cage motor this is not feasible as the  conductors are short-circuited by end rings. In order to attain the above desired conditions following types of rotors are used:

  • Deep bar rotor
  • Double cage rotor.

Deep Bar Rotor:

Figure below shows a cage rotor with deep and  narrow bars. A bar may be assumed to be made up of number of narrow layers connected in parallel. It is seen that the top most layer element ‘A’ is linked with minimum leakage flux and therefore its leakage inductance is minimum. On the other hand, the bottom layer ‘C’ links maximum flux,  therefore its leakage inductance is maximum.

Deep Cage Rotor

At starting the rotor frequency is equal to the supply frequency. The bottom layer element ‘C’ offers more impedance to the current flow then upper layer ‘A’. Therefore the maximum current flows through the top layer and minimum through bottom layer. This unequal current distribution causes the effective rotor  resistance to increase. With a high rotor resistance at starting condition, the starting torque is relatively high & starting current is low as desired. Now under normal operating conditions, the slip and the rotor frequency are very small. The reactance of all the layers are  small compared to their resistances. The impedances of all the layers are nearly equal, so current flows through all the parts of the bar equally. The resulting large cross-section area makes rotor resistance small, resulting in good efficiency at low slips.

Double Cage Rotor:

An induction motor with two rotor windings or cages is used forn obtaining high starting torque at low current. The stator of a double cage induction motor is similar to that of ordinary induction motor. In double cage rotor there are two layers of bars as shown. The outer cage bars have a  smaller cross-sectional area than the inner bars and are made of high resistivity materials like brass etc.

Double Cage Rotor

The inner cage bars are made up of low resistance material like copper. Thus the resistance of outer cage is greater than that of inner cage. There is a slit between the top and bottom slot. Thus the leakage flux linking the inner cage winding is much larger than that of outer cage. The inner cage winding, therefore has a greater self inductance. At starting voltage induced in the rotor is same as the supply frequency. Hence the leakage reactance of the inner cage winding is much larger than of the outer cage. Therefore most of the starting current is flowing in the outer cage winding which offer low impedance to current flow. The high resistance outer cage winding, therefore develops high starting torque. As the rotor speed increases, the frequency of rotor emf decreases.

At normal speed, the leakage reactance of both the winding becomes negligibly small. The rotor current division between the two cages is governed mainly by their resistances. Since the resistance of the outer cage is about 5 to 6 times that  of inner cage, most of the rotor current flows through the inner cage. Hence under normal operating speed, torque developed mainly by low resistance inner cage.

One Piece: Review

Is it really worth watching 900+ episodes ? Is it really worth giving my time?  These type of question may come in your mind before starting One piece which is absolutely natural.

I am going to be really frank and clear to you all,  I myself dropped this series just because it has 600+ episodes,  and when I started there were many series with much better graphics and animation that I could not hold on to one piece  for long,  but that cannot be blamed just because the show started in 1999 and we have to bear it for certain episodes (in starting for graphics) but when story took control over your mind there is no going back , you will be attached with the character to the fullest.

Story Starts with a boy named Monkey D. Luffy or a.k.a The Straw Hat Pirate(title came from his worn-out straw hat that he always have on). he sets off to find Shanks, his pirate idol to return his straw hat as promise and find One Piece to be able to earn the title of Pirate King. Along the way he gathers all kinds of oddballs for his crew, The Straw Hat Pirates . It’s not just the story of pirates and navy , but it’s much more than that , it will carry you on roller coaster of emotions where you will laugh, cry, feel almost all the emotions .

One Piece arcs can be surprisingly amazing. There were times when I rolled over my bed because of some plot twist. It has a very interesting setting as well, from starting it grabs your attention and don’t get loose , in the end of every season it gives you such an arc that you’ll stick to it again because one piece always left some unanswered question for the viewers which make us stick to it. One of the biggest reason for its success is that the shadow of protagonist never overlaps with another character and this enables other characters to put their light on the viewers and we did not get bored seeing the protagonist only . Story also depicts some harsh realities of the world like , how badly humans are treated or how badly humans behave with others  which is distressing to watch but we cannot turn our back from the truth and this makes it more exciting for the audience to watch. From taking you to the green land to rough desert from high mountain to deep sea, the creation  of another world is smoothly choreographed that you will see yourself floating into it.  And that my friend, is what an adventure anime should really be.

This Series have some of the best backstories in the anime world which will not even make you cry but also put so much anger into you that you want to go and punch the villain. Backstories is  one the strength of this anime/manga, you may get attracted towards the villains too with some of the backstories and you will be able to justify their deeds to a some point as well.

Wealth-Fame-Power (yes, we know these words  from the introduction of One piece, right ?), you will come across these three words from the starting of the series but behind these 3 words you will find  Trust-Friendship-Promise  which soak emotions deep into our heart . One Piece knows exactly when to do comedy and when to get emotional they have able to maintain the balance till now and we can hope it will not disappoint us . In search of comedy they never deviate from there 3 unspoken root of Trust-Friendship-Promise and these 3 forces  puts so much adrenaline in the viewers that it is coming from past 20 years and can go for 10 more years.

And that’s where the negative starts of this anime, after so much year when you see closely story has gone only about 60%, they have wasted so many episodes just for the sake world building which can be expected by shonen (it gives priority to setting the new world) and when they have so much episodes in their bag and story is so long then there is no need for filler episodes in my opinion. It has a slow start no doubt about it, some may take 8 episodes and some may take around 280 episodes to get attracted towards it and that is why people complains about it so much.

 So back to our original question Is one piece worth watching?

Obviously it is, once you have watched it surely it’s going to be in your top 5 anime list. If you’re new to this anime world and want to see something unique then this is your anime go for eye, and anime lovers if you’re fan of shonen then how can you miss its one of the best. Don’t get worried about 900+ episodes we all know how it feels when an anime gets over so, what better than never getting finished so watch 2 episodes a day, no need to watch it continuously or wrap 900 episodes in a single blow watch it in your free time, this anime will not leave you/or finishing soon if you start today it will be with you for years. You are not going to regret the time you will give to one piece.

It is an action adventure comedy drama superpower anime One Piece has had a total estimated circulation of approximately 3.1 billion copies in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine  ,you may understand by the number only it’s not worth missing.. Thank you for reading.

Importance of Water Conservation

Water is one of the most essential natural resources for life on Earth. About 97% of the earth is surrounded by water with only 3% of this being fresh water, which can be used for consumption, agriculture and other usages. Water scarcity situation occurs when high rate of aggregate demand from all water-using sectors exceeds available supply, under the prevailing infrastructural conditions. From Cape Town to sub-Saharan Africa to Asia’s teeming megacities, there’s a global water crisis affecting millions of people. Water scarcity affects every continent and was listed in 2019 by the World Economic Forum as one of the largest global risks in terms of potential impact over the next decade.

India’s water problem

India, the second most populous country in the world, has a diverse population that is three times the size of the United States but lives in one-third the physical area. The usage of water across various sectors in India is on the rise, driven by a combination of population growth, socio-economic development and changing consumption patterns.

Geographically also, there is considerable variation within the country with respect to water availability. About 71 per cent of India’s water resources are available to only 36 per cent of the area while the remaining 64 per cent has to make do with 29 per cent of available water (India’s Water Future 2050; Verma & Phansalkar report). Irrigation perhaps the most important input in the agriculture production compared to all other key inputs like seed, fertiliser, etc. In fact, these inputs cease to realise their full benefit unless combined with irrigation. As with all countries with large agricultural output, excess water consumption for food production depletes the overall water table.

India has made massive improvements to both the availability and quality of municipal drinking water systems, however, due to increase in population and rapid growth in India’s urban areas, water scarcity is a looming problem in most major cities across the country. India’s water demand is expected to continue increasing at a similar rate until 2050, accounting for an increase of 20 to 30% above the current level of water use. This can be attributed mainly due to rising demand in the industrial and domestic sectors. Moreover, as the overall population is expected to reach 1.6 billion during the same time period, water scarcity situation, similarly, will further worsen in times to come. Therefore, sustainable management is essential to protect the water environment and to meet the increasing water demand in the future.

Countering India’s water problem

Many areas of India are fortunate to have a relatively wet climate, even in the most arid regions. In these areas, rainwater harvesting could be one solution for water collection. In India, rainwater harvesting has been in practice for more than 4000 years. It is basically a simple process of accumulating and storing of rainwater for drinking, irrigation, and water for livestock.

Rainwater harvesting and management hold tremendous potential for reducing rainwater runoff and reducing groundwater consumption, particularly in urban areas. These systems are acting as incredible support systems in many Indian cities by providing a superb alternative to the main water supply, especially during dry seasons. Widespread installation of these systems is also revitalizing the natural properties of land, helping to improve the quality of groundwater, raising its level, and preventing wells and tube wells from drying up. Additionally, efficient deployment of rainwater harvesting systems is limiting surface runoff of water, which is reducing soil erosion, and increasing its fertility.

More or less all states in India, have made rainwater harvesting mandatory in government institutions, commercial complexes, and residential high-rises. Some of these laws have already come into effect, and others are soon to follow. The Central Ministry for Drinking Water and Sanitation, in association with the Central Ground Water Board has prepared a conceptual document called the ‘Master Plan for Artificial Recharge to Ground Water in India’. The master plan envisages the construction of about 23 lakh rainwater harvesting structures in rural areas, and close to 88 lakh artificial recharge and rainwater harvesting installations in urban centres.

Conservation of water in the agricultural sector is essential since water is necessary for the growth of plants and crops. Only a part of the rainfall or irrigation water is taken up by plants, the rest percolates into the deep groundwater, or is lost by evaporation from the surface. In India’s arid and semi-arid areas, the ‘Tank System’ is traditionally the backbone of agricultural production. ‘Tank System’ refers to large tanks are constructed either by bunding or by excavating the ground to collect rainwater, check water flow and accumulate the run-off. Simple techniques like these can be used to reduce demand of ground water for irrigation. Therefore, by improving the efficiency of water use, and by reducing its loss due to evaporation, agricultural water demand can be reduced.

The Fashion Models Lifestyle

Fashion models’ ways of life are loaded up with fervor and challenge. Fashion models’ ways of life are “lived in the fast track” with photograph shoots, hairdressers, high style attire and design photographic artists. Everything sounds incredible and it’s anything but, a model should function like she is maintaining a business and she is the item that others need.

Most supermodels began their professions by being enlisted by demonstrating scouts who wander around the country in an eager quest for new faces. Different models have sent a couple of basic photos of themselves with a characteristic face, tight pants and basic top with medium heels. Others have been joined at offices’ open castings. Some supermodel’s have additionally been fortunate: Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen were found by Mario Testino, perhaps the most regarded names in the realm of style photography.

Fashion Week- New York, Paris, London, Milan

Karlie Kloss, Martha Hunt, Irina Shayk, and Miranda Kerr are fashion models who have walked the runways in big apple, Paris, London, and Milan. A glimpse behind the curtain in their way of life is continually charming. Fashion week in those cities is filled with glamour and excitement of that world, but there also are instances of tedium and exhaustion that go hand-in-hand with journeying on planes and sitting forever and ever in makeup chairs. All enjoy the massive pay-checks and free garments that for them balances out the troubling realities of an industry that prizes youngsters and thinness. For these women, being a mode version isn’t a dehumanizing manner to form a dwelling a voiceless model. They enjoy their job and skill assembly other humans within the fashion industry whether dress designers, photographers, editors, agents, different models, and experts within the enterprise.

Typical Lifestyle

The common lifestyle of an ordinary operating model isn’t quite as glamorous on an everyday foundation. A version has to attend to herself and maintain a tremendous and professional attitude. A standard day inside the lifestyles of a version starts early with a trip to the gymnasium and schooling for a minimum of thirty mins before a calorie-controlled breakfast which includes meat and an egg for protein to present her energy. At 9 am she may additionally have her first casting of the day. This is wherein she has an appointment to look if she can win the job in the time allotted. She shows her model portfolio and leaves a comp card and her business card with the casting agent.

Traveling to any other casting takes money and time. If the model has a style fitting, the agents will need to ensure the garment will appearance good, sit down nicely, and can walk the runway to perfection.

Lunch is every other high-protein meal to provide lots of power without including fat. The shoot is for not less than three hours. Hair is executed by way of the stylist and then make-up, which may take an hour or greater.

The photoshoot finishes in the late afternoon and she calls her agent. Her agent tells her that she has won one task from the day gone by and it went properly this morning, however without an answer on casting as but.

She ends her day having made just over $500 for the day after charges. Her night meal is a salad as she wishes to maintain her weight low. The evening is spent on the internet catching up with the present-day shoe and undies styles. Her underwear remains on fashion, however she orders a pair of shoes to preserve beforehand of the style scene. She orders online because she doesn’t need to buy a shop selling closing seasons style. She desires seven hours of sleep to allow her body to relax and rejuvenate, prepared to copy the casting technique inside the wish she can be picked for another position, because of this she is in mattress with the aid of 11 pm. That is the way of life of a style model.

Windows 11 Update

It’s true: Windows 11 is coming. At a virtual occasion on June 24, Microsoft uncovered “the up and coming to age of Windows,” for certain large changes to the long-standing working framework, including its first-name change in quite a while. The update comes soon after Microsoft carried out the most recent form of Windows 10, the Windows 10 May 2021 update (otherwise called variant 21H1).

Windows 11 incorporates a lot of new highlights, including the capacity to download and run Android applications on your Windows PC and updates to Microsoft Groups, the Beginning menu and the general look of the product, which is all the more perfect and Windows like in plan. (Here are the entirety of our #1 new Windows 11 highlights and how to utilize them.)

WHAT NEW FEATURES DOES WINDOWS 11 INCLUDE?

i. A new, more mac-like interface. windows 11 features a clean design with rounded corners, pastel shades, and a centered start menu and taskbar.
ii. Integrated android apps. android apps will be coming to Windows 11 and installable from within the new Microsoft store via the amazon AppStore. (there were a couple of ways to access android apps on windows 10, including if you had a Samsung Galaxy phone, but this will make it native.)
iii. Widgets. while they’ve been around for a while (remember desktop gadgets on windows vista?), including in a recent windows 10 update, you can now access widgets directly from the taskbar and personalize them to see whatever you’d like.
iv. Microsoft teams integration. Teams are getting a face-lift and will be integrated directly into the Windows 11 taskbar, making it easier to access (and a bit more like apple’s facetime). you’ll be able to access teams from windows, mac, android, or ios.
v. Xbox tech for better gaming. windows 11 will get certain features found in Xbox consoles, like auto hdr and direct storage, to improve gaming on your windows pc.
vi. Better virtual desktop support. Windows 11 will let you set up virtual desktops in a way that’s more similar to macOS, toggling between multiple desktops for personal, work, school, or gaming use.
vii. Easier transition from monitor to the laptop, and better multitasking. the new os includes features called snap groups and snap layouts — collections of the apps you’re using at once that sit in the taskbar and can come up or be minimized at the same time for easier task switching. they also let you plug and unplug from a monitor more easily without losing where your open windows are located. 

When is the Windows 11 release date?

Windows 11 is now available as an insider preview build download for those in the windows insider program and will be available as a public beta in July. it will begin rolling out to all compatible pcs and new pcs around the 2021 holiday season, according to Microsoft, and will continue rolling out into 2022. however, several hints suggest that windows 11 could arrive as early as October. 

Will my computer be compatible with Windows 11?

To see if your current windows 10 pc is eligible for the free upgrade to Windows 11, go to Microsoft’s website for a list of requirements.

Originally, Microsoft was directing people to download the pc health check app to check if their machines were compatible. however, many users reported that it did not give adequate amounts of detail as to why a device was not compatible. on June 28, a Microsoft blog post said the company was “temporarily removing the app” to address this issue, and that the tool would return before the fall windows 11 release. (when it does return, we have step-by-step instructions for how to use the pc health check app, and what information it will give you. in the meanwhile, here’s how to check some hardware compatibility with Windows 11 without that tool.)


If you buy a new pc between now and the general release, that computer will also be eligible for the free upgrade.

Will it be free to download Windows 11?

If you’re already a Windows 10 user, Windows 11 will appear as a free upgrade for your machine.

For more, check out every feature we wanted in Windows 11 but didn’t get, everything to know about the most recent Windows 10 may 2021 update, the best Windows 10 hidden features we’ve found, and six simple security changes all Windows 10 users need to make.

The Mindful World

The first thing that caught my eye about The Mindful World is just how beautiful their site design is. This is one good looking mindfulness blog.

It takes more than just good looks to be included in this list of the best spiritual blogs, though. And, indeed, The Mindful World has a lot of depth behind that pretty exterior.

The Mindful World is a group of individuals who are passionate about spreading mindfulness around the world. Their articles are very in-depth and some of the most professionally written pieces on any spiritual website.

Excerpt from CONFRONTING REALITY: The lie of Evidence-Based Treatment and how it affects psychological therapy for abused children

“The scientific process is supposed to be the golden standard for the pursuit of knowledge and truth. When asked to think of a scientist, many people will imagine a somewhat “nerdish” individual who’s often more comfortable with numbers than people.

We imagine these scientists as being wholly dedicated to their research and unwavering in their pursuit of the truth. The idea that many published scientists are heavily influenced by politics, that scientific journals often compromise their standards for publications, and that many universities look the other way to secure federal funding, often comes as a shock to most people.”

Change Your Energy

Change Your Energy is a spiritual healing blog. It reads like a self improvement blog, packed full of excellent advice on articles on all manner of self development topics. Every article is full of spiritual guidance and offers inspiration for developing your spiritual life. Change Your Energy is is also one of the most professionally presented spiritual blogs.

My favourite excerpt : From the article “Sing As If Speaking, Dance As If Walking”

“Do you pick up your smartphone, look for people to chat with, or go to the TV or Internet because time alone is lonely, strange, or difficult? You can be a wonderful friend to yourself, incomparably better than any person or any machine.

Here is a suggestion for enjoying spending time with yourself: Sing and dance for 30 minutes every day. Try to sing as if speaking and to dance as if walking.

Enjoy being immersed in yourself, regardless of what other people think. The time you enjoy spending with yourself is time for changing your energy and for accumulating energy. You can encounter your soul as you sing and dance.

From “6 tips for driving your car as a spiritual practice”
“MAKE YOUR CAR A NO PHONE ZONE LIKE OPRAH SAYS.  I’ll be the first to admit that I am useless at using a phone and driving, in fact I’m a downright danger so don’t do it at all.  Just because you might be better than me doesn’t mean you should do it too though.  If the phone rings and I am alone, I pull over if I know I’m waiting for an important call.  If you work a lot on your phone, get hands free…it’s not the greatest idea but it could save your life.  If I have the girls in the car then they answer the phone for me.  When it’s their turn to learn to drive, texting and driving will not be acceptable because I DON’T DO IT

Favourite Except: From “Awakening”

“Life inside the awakening is a whole other beast. Many people focus on the singular point of awakening, that amazing “Ah-ha!” moment. However, while that is a critical piece of the awakening process, so is the transition from sleep-mode to every moment awakeness. The awakening ushers in a time of transition that is unsettled, unstable, and unique. It is a time of embracing new and amazing parts of you and then trying to crawl right back into bed. It is a time of expansion and contraction as you grow and then shrink back to the core issues that are still unresolved and holding you back.”

Excerpt from : Boost Your Happiness: 10 Mindfulness Tips for Busy People

“Do you ever feel as though you would be happy if only things were a little different?

You know that happiness is important, but you keep putting it on the backburner because there simply isn’t enough time to prioritize your own inner joy.

And at the same time, you know that meditation would help, but you can’t even imagine where you’re going to get the spare time you need to sit still and meditate.

In an ideal world, we would schedule moments every day in which to cater to our health needs, because health and well-being are paramount. Yet despite our best efforts we will inevitably face those times when we’re busy every minute of the day. I know I’ve been there.”

Age discrimination

What is age discrimination?
This is when you are treated differently because of your age in one of the situations that are covered by the Equality Act.

The Equality Act has some exceptions. For example, students are not protected from age discrimination at school.

The treatment could be a one-off action or as a result of a rule or policy based on age. It doesn’t have to be intentional to be unlawful.

There are some circumstances when being treated differently due to age is lawful, explained below.

What the Equality Act says about age discrimination
The Equality Act 2010 says that you must not be discriminated against because:

you are (or are not) a certain age or in a certain age group
someone thinks you are (or are not) a specific age or age group, this is known as discrimination by perception
you are connected to someone of a specific age or age group, this is known as discrimination by association
Age groups can be quite wide (for example, ‘people under 50’ or ‘under 18s’). They can also be quite specific (for example, ‘people in their mid-40s’). Terms such as ‘young person’ and ‘youthful’ or ‘elderly’ and ‘pensioner’ can also indicate an age group.

Different types of age discrimination
There are four main types of age discrimination.

Direct discrimination
This happens when someone treats you worse than another person in a similar situation because of your age. For example:

your employer refuses to allow you to do a training course because she thinks you are ‘too old’, but allows younger colleagues to do the training.
Direct age discrimination is permitted provided that the organisation or employer can show that there is a good reason for the discrimination.

This is known as objective justification. For example:

you are 17 and apply for a job on a construction site. The building company refuses to employ under-18s on that site because accident statistics show that it can be dangerous for them. The company’s treatment of you is probably justified
a guest house owner charges twice her normal rates for people under 21. She hopes it will deter young people from booking because a few have caused damage recently. A more appropriate alternative would be to ask for a deposit. It is unlikely that the guest house can justify charging the increased rates
Indirect discrimination
Indirect discrimination happens when an organisation has a particular policy or way of working that applies to everyone but which puts people of your age group at a disadvantage. For example:

you are 22 and you find you are not eligible to be promoted because your employer has a policy that only workers with a post graduate qualification (such as a Masters) can be promoted. Although this applies to everyone it disadvantages people of your age because they are less likely to have that qualification
an optician allows customers to pay for their glasses by instalments, provided they are in employment. This could indirectly discriminate against older people, who are less likely to be working
Like direct age discrimination, indirect age discrimination can be permitted if the organisation or employer is able to show that there is a good reason for the policy. This is known as objective justification.

Harassment
Harassment occurs when someone makes you feel humiliated, offended or degraded. For example:

during a training session at work, the trainer keeps commenting how slow an older employee is at learning how to use a new software package because of his age. The employee finds this distressing. This could be considered harassment related to age
Harassment can never be justified. However, if an organisation or employer can show it did everything it could to prevent people who work for it from behaving like that, you will not be able to make a claim for harassment against it, although you could make a claim against the harasser.

Victimisation
This is when you are treated badly because you have made a complaint of age discrimination under the Equality Act. It can also occur if you are supporting someone who has made a complaint of age discrimination. For example:

your colleague complains of being called a ‘wrinkly’ at work. You help them complain to your manager. Your manager treats you badly as a result of getting involved

national doctor’s day

National Doctor’s Day is celebrated on 1 July in India. Doctor’s are highly respected in the world, in which they are worshipped in India. By the way, man is not capable of comparing him to the God, but the doctor has achieved this status through his work. By the way, life is not human, but death is in the hands of God, but now God has given the right to give experience to a person by making him a doctor. We call this life donor a doctor, who gives birth to us, as well as sometimes saves us from death. In the field of medicine, doctor have progressed day by day. Today, a doctor can cure the most significant diseases. With the help of the wonders of science, doctors are able to reach here today. Celebrations are made to honour and salute the doctor’s dedication, work, loyalty and honesty.

HISTORY

Since it is celebrated on different days in different countries, the history of celebrating this day is also our own. Doctor’s Day in India was started in 1991 by the then Government of India. Since then every year, the first date of July is established to be recognized and celebrating as National Doctor’s Day. This day was ensured to honour and pay tribute to the legendary doctor and other Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, across India. He was born on July 1, 1882, A.D in Patna city, Bihar, and died on this day 80 years later. He was a noted physician and renowned educationist of the country as well as a freedom fighter because he participated in the movements made by Mahatma Gandhi, and also took care of him in his fast. After Independence, he became the leader of the Indian National Congress Party and then later became the Chief Minister of West Bengal. He was awarded the Bharat Ratna Award in February 1961. Apart from this, Dr. BC Roy National Award was instituted in 1976 to remember him. The award was to pay him respect and tribute. Therefore, to honour and remember such a great personality National Doctor’s Day was started.

OBJECTIVE

Be a person; a doctor plays a vital role in everyone’s life. On one hand, doctor play an essential role for the people, and on the other, doctor’s also fulfill their responsibilities towards their patients. In such a situation, his honour should be a matter of pride of us. For this purpose, the Government of India has started it as an awareness campaign, which is an annual festival and it helps the familiar people to become aware of the role, importance and precious care of doctors. This annual festival of doctor’s is a day of encouragement for all the doctors. This day is an eye opening day for those doctor’s who are not honest about their profession. By celebrating this day, he has awakened from his failed career due to a lack of commitment towards his job.

HOW TO CELEBRATE THIS DAY?

People celebrate this day in their way. But some organizations celebrate it in the following way-

  • On this day, health care organizations organize some medical checkup camps for the general public in many health centers and free public places.
  • In addition, general screening test camps are also organized between poor and senior citizens to assess health status, health counselling, talks on health nutrition and awareness of chronic diseases.
  • Free blood test, random sugar test, ECG, EEG, blood pressure checkup, etc. activities are organized to make aware of the critical roles of doctor’s in everyone’s life.
  • To encourage more young students toward the dedicated medical profession; some activities are organized at the level of schools and colleges, which discuss medical topics, quiz competitions, sports activities, new to make the medical profession more reliable and more responsible.
  • On July 1, most of the patients thank doctor’s and give them greeting cards, appreciation cards, bouquets, greeting messages through mail,etc. Special meetings, parties, and dinners are organized at health centers, hospitals, nursing homes or homes by doctor’s to remember the days of doctors and the importance of their contribution to the medical profession.

Spirituality

Spirituality is a broad concept with room for many perspectives. In general, it includes a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, and it typically involves a search for meaning in life. As such, it is a universal human experience—something that touches us all. People may describe a spiritual experience as sacred or transcendent or simply a deep sense of aliveness and interconnectedness.

 

Some may find that their spiritual life is intricately linked to their association with a church, temple, mosque, or synagogue. Others may pray or find comfort in a personal relationship with God or a higher power. Still others seek meaning through their connections to nature or art. Like your sense of purpose, your personal definition of spirituality may change throughout your life, adapting to your own experiences and relationships.

 

You will notice as you read on that many practices recommended for cultivating spirituality are similar to those recommended for improving emotional wellbeing. This is because there is a connection between the two—emotional and spiritual wellbeing influence one another and overlap, as do all aspects of wellbeing.

 

Spirituality is the broad concept of a belief in something beyond the self. It may involve religious traditions centering on the belief in a higher power, but it can also involve a holistic belief in an individual connection to others and to the world as a whole.

 

Instead, it suggests that there is something greater that connects all beings to each other and to the universe itself. It also proposes that there is ongoing existence after death and strives to answer questions about the meaning of life, how people are connected to each other, truths about the universe, and other mysteries of human existence.

 

Spirituality and religious activity have been a source of comfort and relief from stress for multitudes of people. While people use many different religions and paths to find God or to express their spirituality, ​research has shown that those who are more religious or spiritual and use their spirituality to cope with challenges in life experience many benefits to their health and well-being.

 

Whether you are rediscovering a forgotten spiritual path, reinforcing your commitment to an already well-established one, or seeking a new source of spiritual fulfillment, exploring your spiritual side may help improve your well-being.

 

Spirituality is a very personal experience, and everyone’s spiritual path may be unique. Research shows, however, that some spiritual stress relief strategies have been helpful to many, regardless of faith.

 

What is love…?

Could it actually be that one person loves and hates another person in the same time? Today he says ‘’I love you’’ but tomorrow he says ‘’I hate the day I met you’’.

 

Could it be that even if a person loves someone with whole heart, he hates him for a couple of minutes? Of course it does and we all have experienced that in our lives.

 

Think about a person you love more than God, have you loved him every single minute of your life? Have you never said ‘’ I hate you, stay away from me! Don’t come! Never, never again’’ to a person you love more that God? Of course you did, that’s not weird at all, we are all humans. When a person loves another person, regardless on what that person means to him, there is always one piece of his heart that loves that person so much that no one can explain amount of it and one part that can easily be affected by frustration and anger.

 

Love is not only loving someone, love is not only to be with someone you love, love is much more than that, love is when a person is worried about another person, when a person starts being angry because he is disappointed on the person he loves, when a person doesn’t think about words coming out of his mouth because love and everything that person has fought for has been hurt. If a person loves another person and in the meanwhile person has been hurt or disappointed from a person he loves, the only thing a person can get is huge and unstoppable wind which comes so fast and blows over person heart so that nothing can stop it, no one can think at something else but frustration, hate, anger and disappointment. That doesn’t happen because a person doesn’t love another person, it happens exactly because he actually loves that person, otherwise he wouldn’t care about that or be disappointed or angry.

 

One relationship between two persons can’t be successful without mixed feelings. You know why? Because that relationship wouldn’t be between two persons, not between humans. We are not created to have only one feeling in our heart, we are created to have mixed feelings, otherwise we wouldn’t exist, right? To have mixed feelings doesn’t always have to mean something bad, sometimes it can help in understanding of each other feelings. One human is not created to be robot, human is not created to be programmed, not to repeat same thing over and over without quitting or changing something. Of course that mixed feelings can lead to some bad stuff, like being disappointed or being angry, frustrated, but it cannot lead to an catastrophe, because if a person truly loves someone else, then relationship between them is unbreakable, then there is no problem that cant be solved for them, then there is no trap that cant be avoided, then everything is possible, even the things whole world thinks are not.

 

 

Its not possible for love to work if everything is peace and joy, love must be wounded, disappointed, cursed, hated, but still loved.

 

Where does the smell of rain comes from?

Ever experienced smelling that calm and earthy fragrance coming from the dry ground when it is raining? I bet all of us are attracted to that pleasant odour.

Matter of fact there is a term used for that particular smell it is called Petrichor.

But why are we all are such a fan of petrichor and where does petrichor arises from?

Scientists detected that the earth smell or petrichor come from the organic compound called Geosmin, which is actually produced by microbes of the genus Streptomyces. Also, the interesting fact is Streptomyces produces Geosmin when they are dying.

So, the question arises what makes the produce Geosmin when it starts raining? And are we the only species who love the smell of petrichor?

An insect called Springtails like humans also loves the smell of petrichor. Springtails have antennae and they can sense the Geosmin produced by the Streptomyces and this helps Springtails to find the Streptomyces and later consuming them as their food.

 But why would any creature produce a smell so that it could get eaten by another creature?

The thing is Streptomyces wants to be eaten by the Springtail so that after they are eaten and Springtails defecates. The spores of Streptomyces can proliferate further via the faecal pellet of Springtails. So, here we can understand how the Streptomyces are reproducing asexually.

All of this is actually a part of the lifecycle of Streptomyces.

Isn’t it amazing how nature works?

Next time when you smell petrichor remember there is a whole feast happening for the Springtails in that ground below you also  the circle of rebirth for Streptomyces is also circling.

Popular Music Genres

Essentially the entirety of the important genre of well-known music somewhat recently has come from the USA. This is the place where African and European melodic practices met up, and it’s this combination of customs that brought forth famous music.

BLUES

At the point when a huge number of Africans were shipped to America as slaves in the eighteenth and nineteenth hundreds years, their tunes and rhythms went with them. They realized that singing together made working simpler, and it was in these work tunes that African rhythms and songs were safeguarded until subjugation finished in 1865. Numerous African Americans became Christians and sang psalms in the chapel. Others figured out how to play well-known melodies and dance tunes for cash. Be that as it may, at whatever point they sang and played, the African rhythms of the old work tunes could be heard. Also, when they communicated their sentiments by making new tunes, African songs could be heard in the tunes.

It was this new blend of African and Western music that prompted the class we currently call “blues”. A few blues tunes recounted accounts of grievousness and torment, and these were regularly sluggish and tragic. Be that as it may, others were tied in with being infatuated, or having a great time, and these were up-rhythm and great to move to. Different blues styles created throughout the long term, some in humble communities of the American south and others in urban areas like Chicago and New Orleans. Yet, any place the music was played, audience members heard a sound that planned to impact essentially every kind of mainstream music to come, from jazz and soul to hip bounce. In the event that you’d prefer to hear some early blues, have a go at looking for the chronicles of Blind Willie McTell, Bukka White, and Lightnin’ Hopkins. For later blues, attempt Billie Holiday, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and John Lee Hooker.

JAZZ

Most African American performers just played blues, yet some played traditional music too and learned European amicability. Some even blended European amicability in with the rhythms and sizes of blues, and it was from this combination that “jazz” was conceived. Perhaps the best artist was the trumpet player Louis Armstrong, who assisted with creating numerous styles of jazz. He was in New Orleans, his old neighborhood, during the 1910s when the walking band style of New Orleans jazz (or “dixieland”) was being conceived. During the 1920s he was in Chicago creating better approaches for making do with Joe “Ruler” Oliver and his band. Then, at that point, he was in New York City during the 1930s when enormous band jazz and swing were creating. These recent trends were played by jazz symphonies with a cadence area (drums, twofold bass, piano, and guitar), metal and woodwind segments, and now and again strings and at least one artist. Swing was immensely mainstream in the 1940 s, turning into the music that almost everybody moved to. Probably the best jazz symphonies were those driven by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Fletcher Henderson, with whom Louis Armstrong played. Every one of the most mainstream vocalists of the day, such as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Nat King Cole, sang with jazz symphonies.

Yet, by the 1950s numerous youthful artists not, at this point needed to play in jazz ensembles. They needed the opportunity to make do and started testing in their own groups. After a short time, they were playing energizing recent fads like bebop and modular jazz. These recent fads weren’t as simple to move to as swing, so they weren’t as famous, yet they tracked down another crowd of genuine audience members for whom present-day jazz was craftsmanship music instead of mainstream music. The best of these performers included Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Charles Mingus.

RHYTHMS AND BLUES

As jazz was getting increasingly more famous during the 1930s and 1940 s, another new type was beginning to create. Numerous African Americans were proficient blues artists, however bringing in cash wasn’t simple. They framed little groups and searched for work in modest bars and clubs. However, to get work, they needed to draw in crowds. Most youngsters who went to these spots thought blues was antiquated, so the groups needed to foster a recent trend, and what they made was “cadence and blues” (or R&B*).

The early types of R&B were uproarious and enthusiastic and generally played on drums, twofold bass, and electric guitar. Artists were men or ladies with large voices, and crowds adored it. The style immediately spread all through the country, with bigger groups adding piano, trumpet, and saxophone. R&B was incredibly fun and ideal for moving, and by the mid-1940s numerous groups were selling records. Two of the greatest dealers were T-Bone Walker and Louis Jordan’s “Tympany Five”, who had the main hit in 1944 with G.I. Jive. Later R&B specialists incorporate Ruth Brown, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters, and Ray Charles.

*The term “R&B” is currently used to depict heartfelt soul melodies and numbers, a totally different style to the first R&B.

ROCK AND ROLL

By the mid-1950 s, another new sort called “rock and roll” (or “rock’n’roll”) was being made by performers who could play both R&B and Western Swing, a well-known style of nation-dance music. This new music was played on a similar arrangement of instruments as R&B – electric guitar, twofold bass, and drums – with the guitarist regularly singing also. It’s anything but solid blues beat and a R&B feel, however the songs resembled those of down home music. It was incredible to move to, and rowdy dance styles before long created also. The verses were enjoyable to pay attention to, and it immediately got famous, particularly when youngsters heard rowdy records on the radio.

One of the primary groups to record was “Bill Hayley and His Comets\” who had a hit single with Rock nonstop in 1954. They were enormously impacted by R&B specialists like Louis Jordan and Large Joe Turner, as were numerous others like Little Richard and Toss Berry, whose 1956 single Turn Over Beethoven turned into a gigantic hit. Jerry Lee Lewis, who stunned crowds with his wild piano playing, additionally turned out to be well known.

Be that as it may, rock and roll appeared to be wild and hazardous to numerous guardians, particularly when they saw the attractive moving of an attractive youthful vocalist named Elvis Presley. There was no way to prevent their children from cherishing rock and roll and being devotees of Elvis, nonetheless. He turned out to be colossally fruitful and made rowdy quite possibly the most famous styles of music in America, however across the world. Elvis had many hit singles, including Dog Canine, Catastrophe Inn, and Prison Rock, and he before long got known as “the ruler of rock and roll” or essentially “the king”.

THE 1960s

In the mid-60s another classification called Awesome Music started to foster when youthful performers consolidated the rock and roll of craftsmen like Elvis with components of R&B. Recent trends of Country Music likewise got well known during the 60s, as did a recent fad of melodic R&B called Soul Music. Later during 60’s 60’s soul craftsmen like James Earthy colored fostered a more cadenced style called funk, and funk prompted numerous recent trends of Dance Music during the 70s, the 80s and the past. In the last part of the 70s another kind called Hip Jump likewise created. Hip bounce is currently quite possibly the most famous styles of music on the planet, and like all significant classes of well-known music it’s created many hit singles on the Popular Music graphs.
