HUBO Robots Perform The Beatles' "Come Together"

 Four of Drexel University's HUBO robots perform the Beatles' "Come Together" in a demonstration that combines cutting-edge technology with creative expression.

  The HUBOs are operating autonomously (not human-controlled). Their movements are directed by student-developed software to perform the gestures necessary to produce the appropriate notes and beats as dictated by a musical score. Every sound in the video was performed by the robots.

Special Use of Excavator

Just another day on the Saigon River in Ho Chi Minh City. See the excavator used for rowing the boat in Ho Chi Minh City

Sunday, June 17, 2012


Interesting and very thoughtful message for all to read.
A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.  
Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together.
He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you. "The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued. "I am going to give each one of you a SEED today - one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you.  
I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO."
One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted   the seed. Everyday, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.  
Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.  
Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.  
By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn't have a plant and he felt like a failure.
Six months went by -- still nothing in Jim's pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing.
Jim didn't say anything to his colleagues, however, he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil - He so wanted the seed to grow.
A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.
Jim told his wife that he wasn't going to take an empty pot.
But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot
 to the board room.

When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety
 of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful - in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!
When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his youngexecutives.
Jim just tried to hide in the back. "My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the CEO. "Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!"
All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified. He thought, "The CEO knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!"  
When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed, Jim told him the story.
The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, "Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!  
His name is Jim!" Jim couldn't believe it. Jim couldn't even grow his seed.
"How could he be the new CEO?" the others said.
Then the CEO said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead - it was not possible for them to grow.
All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!"
* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust  
* If you plant goodness, you will reap friends
* If you plant humility, you will reap greatness
* If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment
* If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective
* If you plant hard work, you will reap success
* If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation
 So, be careful what you plant now;
it will determine what you will reap later. 
Think about this for a minute.

 This is real footage, not CGI!   "Renault has 8 models in his range of cars with 5 stars in the Euo NCAP crash test." 

Translation: “The safest range of cars in the world".   This ad for the French automaker shows the company's commitment to crashworthiness. Shot in South Africa, it features ten brilliantly choreographed cars.   Music: "Ballet de Flocons de Neige" (Ballet of the Snowflakes), performed by the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in Prague

Honda "Uni-Cub" Personal Mobility Device

Honda re-invented the wheel with its battery-powered, two-wheeled mobility device that can carry pedestrians at a top speed of 4 mph (6km/h).

The "Uni-Cub" allows the rider to control speed, move in any direction, turn and stop, all simply by shifting his or her weight. It uses gyroscopic balance control technology and an omni-directional driving wheel system. Just 29 inches (74cm) high, it puts the rider at eye level with other pedestrians, promoting harmony between riders and walkers. With its lithium-ion battery, it has a range of 4 miles (6 km) on a single charge. The Honda Uni-Cub is the successor to the Honda U3-X, which was announced in 2009.

PAL-V Flying Car

The PAL-V 'Personal Air and Land Vehicle' is a two seat hybrid car and gyroplane made in Holland.

This unique vehicle runs on regular gasoline and can reach speeds of up to 180 km/h (112 mph) both on land and in the air.    Capacity: 2 persons - ROAD PERFORMANCE: Est. fuel economy: 12 km/l (28 mpg) - Range: 1200 km (750 miles) FLIGHT PERFORMANCE: Max. speed:97 kts (180 km/h) - Min. speed for level flight: 27 kts (50 km/h) - Take-off roll: 165 m (540 ft) - Landing roll: 30 m (100 ft) - Est fuel economy: 36 l/h (9,5 gph) - Range: 350-500 km (220-315 miles)    A PAL-V ONE flies exactly like a gyrocopter, which is the easiest and safest way of flying. Flying the PAL-V ONE in the USA requires a Sports Pilot License. In Europe a Recreational Pilot License (RPL) or a Private Pilot License (PPL) are required. Learning to fly the PAL-V ONE usually takes 20 to 40 hours of student-pilot lessons.        For more than a century man has dreamed of the freedom provided by a flying car. The ultimate vehicle to go wherever and whenever you want to, easily overcoming all sorts of barriers. Now you can leave home and fly-drive to almost any destination! Avoid traffic jams and cross lakes, fjords, rivers or mountain ranges like an eagle. Land on the other side and drive in your own vehicle to your final destination.

From the 119,000 ideas received. three vehicle and technology concepts were produced and are now on display at the 2012 Beijing auto show. Watch this brave a Chinese couple hover around the city in the first (computer animated) test drive of this Volkswagen concept car. Definition: Concept Car: A vehicle made to showcase new styling and or new technology. They are often shown at motor shows to gauge customer reaction to new and radical designs which may or may not have a chance of being produced.

How Indian Doctors Loot Patients.

Email received from Jayesh T Doshi is reproduced herebelow. We do not subscribe to the views of the emailer. Take your own decision after reading the email.
This is from Dr. B M Hegde.
Wonder how much is widespread and how much are merely a few black sheep.
How Indian Doctors Loot Patients.
Most of these observations are either completely or partially true. Corruption has many names, and one of civil society isn't innocent either. Professionals and businessmen of various sorts indulge in unscrupulous practices. I recently had a chat with some doctors, surgeons and owners of nursing homes about the tricks of their trade. Here is what they said
1)      40-60% kickbacks for lab tests. When a doctor (whether family doctor / general physician, consultant or surgeon) prescribes tests - pathology, radiology, X-rays, MRIs etc. - the laboratory conducting those tests gives commissions. In South and Central Mumbai -- 40%. In the suburbs north of Bandra -- a whopping 60 per cent! He probably earns a lot more in this way than the consulting fees that you pay.
2)      30-40% for referring to consultants, specialists & surgeons. When your friendly GP refers you to a specialist or surgeon, he gets 30-40%.
3)      30-40% of total hospital charges. If the GP or consultant recommends hospitalization, he will receive kickback from the private nursing home as a percentage of all charges including ICU, bed, nursing care, surgery.
4)      Sink tests. Some tests prescribed by doctors are not needed. They are there to inflate bills and commissions. The pathology lab understands what is unnecessary. These are called "sink tests"; blood, urine, stool samples collected will be thrown.
5)      Admitting the patient to "keep him under observation". People go to cardiologists feeling unwell and anxious. Most of them aren't really having a heart attack, and cardiologists and family doctors are well aware of this. They admit such safe patients, put them on a saline drip with mild sedation, and send them home after 3-4 days after charging them a fat amount for ICU, bed charges, visiting doctors fees.
6)      ICU minus intensive care. Nursing homes all over the suburbs are run by doctor couples or as one-man-shows. In such places, nurses and ward boys are 10th class drop-outs in ill-fitting uniforms and bare feet. These "nurses" sit at the reception counter, give injections and saline drips, perform ECGs, apply dressings and change bandages, and assist in the operation theatre. At night, they even sit outside the Intensive Care Units; there is no resident doctor. In case of a crisis, the doctor -- who usually lives in the same building -- will turn up after 20 minutes, after this nurse calls him. Such ICUs admit safe patients to fill up beds. Genuine patients who require emergency care are sent elsewhere to hospitals having a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) round-the-clock.
7)      Unnecessary caesarean surgeries and hysterectomies. Many surgical procedures are done to keep the cash register ringing. Caesarean deliveries and hysterectomy (removal of uterus) are high on the list. While the woman with labour -pains is screaming and panicking, the obstetrician who gently suggests that caesarean is best seems like an angel sent by God! Menopausal women experience bodily changes that make them nervous and gullible. They can be frightened by words like " and "fibroids" that are in almost every normal woman's radiology reports. When a gynaecologist gently suggests womb removal "as a precaution", most women and their husbands agree without a second's thought.
8)      Cosmetic surgery advertized through newspapers. Liposuction and plastic surgery are not minor procedures. Some are life-threateningly major. But advertisements make them appear as easy as facials and waxing. The Indian medical council has strict rules against such misrepresentation. But nobody is interested in taking action.
9)       Indirect kickbacks from doctors to prestigious hospitals. To be on the panel of a prestigious hospital, there is give-and-take involved. The hospital expects the doctor to refer many patients for hospital admission. If he fails to send a certain number of patients, he is quietly dumped. And so he likes to admit patients even when there is no need.
10)  "Emergency surgery" on dead body. If a surgeon hurriedly wheels your patient from the Intensive Care Unit to the operation theatre, refuses to let you go inside and see him, and wants your signature on the consent form for "an emergency operation to save his life", it is likely that your patient is already dead. The "emergency operation" is for inflating the bill; if you agree for it, the surgeon will come out 15 minutes later and report that your patient died on the operation table. And then, when you take  delivery of the dead body, you will pay OT charges, anaesthesiologist's charges, blah-blah-Doctors are humans too. You can't trust them blindly. Pleaseunderstand the difference. Young surgeons and old ones. The young ones who are setting up nursing home etc. have heavy loans to settle. To pay back the loan, they have to perform as many operations as possible. Also, to build a reputation, they have to perform a large number of operations and develop their skills. So, at first, every case seems fit for cutting. But with age, experience and prosperity, many surgeons lose their taste for cutting, and stop recommending operations. Physicians and surgeons. To a man with a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. Surgeons like to solve medical problems by cutting, just as physicians first seek solutions with drugs. So, if you take your medical problem to a surgeon first, the chances are that you will unnecessarily end up on the operation table. Instead, please go to an ordinary GP first

Inspired Bicycles - Danny MacAskill

Filmed over the period of a few months in and around Edinburgh by Dave Sowerby, this video of Inspired Bicycles team rider Danny MacAskill (more info at features probably the best collection of street/street trials riding ever seen. There's some huge riding, but also some of the most technically difficult and imaginative lines you will ever see. Without a doubt, this video pushes the envelope of what is perceived as possible on a trials bike.

Quotes compiled by Akbar Ali Narshi

1.Heavy rains remind us of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain. Just pray for a better umbrella

2 When flood comes, fishes eat ants & when flood recedes,ants eat fish. Only time matters. Just hold on, God gives opportunity to everyone!

3.Life is not about finding the right person, but creating the right relationship, it’s not how we care in the beginning, but how much we care till end.

4.Some people always throw stones in your path. It depends on you what you make with them, Wall or Bridge? Remember you are the architect of your life.

5.Every problem has (n+1) solutions, where n is the number of solutions that you have tried and 1 is that you have not tried. That’s life (Keep trying).

6.It’s not important to hold all the good cards in life. But it’s important how well you play with the cards which you hold.

7.Often when we lose all hope & think this is the end, God smiles from above and says, `Relax dear it’s just a bend.Not the end’. Have Faith and have a successful life.

8. When you feel sad, to cheer up just go to the mirror and say, `Damn I am really so cute` and you will overcome your sadness. But don’t make this a habit because liars go to hell.

9.One of the basic differences between God and human is, God gives and forgives. But human gets and forgets. Be thankful in life!

10.Only two types of persons are happy in this  world. One a mad person and two a Child. Be Mad to achieve what you desire and be a Child to enjoy what you have achieved.
