When India failed English.

“Pakistan is advanced than India, in how it accepts English, as a non-primary language. ~50% of people in Pakistan ( — total ~ 90 million) are speakers of English, compared to 12% of India (125 million out of > ~ 1.20 billion). In percentage terms, all non-native English speaking countries, like Nigeria, Pakistan or Philippines are higher, than India’s population, speaking English. The norm is 50% or more (for all others) while for India its 12%. In absolute numbers only, India surpasses them. The acceptance in India, for English, is really low. On an average, major regional language do not cause such a response, because; we are anyway counting English as a 2nd or 3rd language. “

Neutrinos, the new smurfy hulks.

Looks like a well done Physics measurement.

These tiny little morons called as neutrinos are now becoming ubiquitous (some would take an objection to me calling these beautiful smurfs morons simply because I don’t get them, what are they saying again? blurp blurp blurp this time time we have a lotta energy, wanna mess up buddy?)

Ubiquitous is not an adjective for only finding 28 of them. But compare that to how many would be found if we are not to have smart technology and a dint of luck and a lot of hard work, probably 0.3 neutrinos, confirmed by a Bayesian technique opposed to say a frequentist method (are they the same, I won’t know since I am a science writer lol) !!

Bugs in your gmail?

I think I have found two bugs in gmail (by seeing its unwanted behavior)

1. This one has happened for years, now, solves itself in few hours. YOU CLICK on the email and it will not open. All other actions such as browsing through the boxes and delete etc would be working. SO you just gotta be patient for a while.

2. This one is more scary. Perhaps happening for a few months now. Seems like there is a bug that scatters the emails randomly and in large numbers (perhaps the ones it think are mass-notifications, it can drag some of your important message there if the message source is routine, that is your job-website or your bank emails) .

What happens? You can’t see a large number of emails, these are invisible, so after you read this, take my trick and check how many would be sitting in your email never read by you. You can’t and bet ya’ haven’t seen tons of emails that have been sent to you, few very urgent emails. Likely.
