Excessive Use of Mobile Phones in Children

A recent research study shows that children are really capable of using any advanced type of mobile phones even without any proper guidance. Though mobile phones are the effective mode of communication, it is a well known fact that it also has adverse side effects if being over used. The mobile phones emit shock wave radioactive radiations that affect the body in various manners. Adverse effects of mobile phone usage: Today's children are growing up in a radio-frequency environment that never existed in human history before. The radiation emitted by mobile phones and mobile phone masts can have adverse effects on children. Some include:

Bluetooth-Powered Smart Electronic Pill Releases Drugs on Demand

An electronic wireless device that can stay inside the gut for a lengthy period of time has been developed by researchers of an engineering company, MIT, Draper & Havard's Brigham & Women's Hospital. The device releases drugs into the body & measures various parameters.

The instrument has Bluetooth connectivity inbuilt & can share it's reading and trigger the discharge of a drug by the use of a coupled smartphone app.
The swallowable instrument can stay in the body for about a month & it can be manufactured to different specifications since it is 3D printed.

Moreover, it can be programmed so that the measurements that its sensors make can trigger a drug to be administered, allowing for immediate treatment of symptoms of allergies, infections, and other conditions. “Our system could provide closed-loop monitoring and treatment, whereby a signal can help guide the delivery of a drug or tuning the dose of a drug,” said Giovanni Traverso, a researcher involved…

Cause & Effects of Population Growth in India

Demographic transition explains a form of relationship between population and economic development. In the western countries it has been found that they have moved from a condition of high birth and death rates, to a condition of low birth and death rates which led to a slow rate of growth of population. This demographic change is known as 'Demographic Transition'. in other words, demographic transition describes the passage through which countries move from high birth and death rates to low ones. This has been the experience of countries going through a process of modernizing economic and social development. The growth rate of population is a function of migration, birth rate and death rate in a country. The change in population caused by net migration as a proportion of total population of the country is almost insignificant and, therefore, can be easily ignored. That leaves us with birth rate and death rate. The difference between the birth rate and the death rate measures t…

Balakot Air Strike Was A Message or Eliminations of Terrorist Camps

India says Tuesday's raid destroyed a major training camp of Jaish-e Mohammad, a militant group that claimed responsibility for a Feb. 14 attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir that killed 40 members of a paramilitary police unit. India's Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said the strike killed "a very large number of Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists, trainers, senior commanders, and groups of jihadis who were being trained for Fidayeen action were eliminated." Fidayeen is a term used to describe Islamist militants on suicide missions. Another senior government official told reporters that about 300 militants had been killed. On Thursday, though, a senior defence official appeared to backtrack on the claims. Asked about how much damage the warplanes had caused, Air Vice Marshal R.G.K. Kapoor said it was "premature" to provide details about casualties. But he said the Indian armed forces had "fairly credible evidence" of the damage inflicted on the camp by the …
