ALL the violence is male generated. Reply

Violence is nothing but an act that you commit or pose yourself to commit because its negative effects do not impact your narrowly defined choices but anyone beyond that narrow definition is affected and that’s none of your concern. Hence dishonesty is a very malevolent form of violence.

“ALL the violence is male generated” and its their responsibility to see its controlled. That men’s role is more critical since all violence is male generated.

Guess who said this.

The ‘Women and Children’ minister Maneka Gandhi. From today’s TOI print version, first page.

Madam; Phulan Devi and Indrani Mukherjea were/are male? How about the lady who killed your own brother in law Mr Rajiv Gandhi, by suicide bombing?

Of-course you can give us lectures on how the male are to be blamed for crimes committed by female and the other way; males committing crimes driven by females, is just not possible.

It shows your attitude to create men vs women unrest in society so you can gain political mileage. Shame that you are a minister.

Please educate your self before people reject your overtures to gain mileage.

here is something that might tell you stories otherwise Mrs Gandhi. Men are 2nd class victims. And remember there are potentially significantly as many number of women acting violently as their could be men. Its just like your political fate, this year you gain 70% votes next election 30%.

What happens when some UV falls on biological molecules? (or any kind) some of these molecules like the wooden pole absorb the energy and there still remains energy which they can emit as visible light. So the UV light kicks the molecules and the molecules in turn emit visible light. This implies that the UV wavelength that the molecules absorbed energy at are very small compared to the wavelength at which they emit visible light. This is always the case.

When we say some materials are fluorescent it means they absorbed higher energy and emitted lower energy radiations of colorful light.

But this has a great deal of application apart from its theoretical interest. More…

How does the word saturnine derives ! Reply

How does the word saturnine derives ! if you care why words derive !

Saturnine might have had originated in the fact that Saturn’s Equinoxes are month long darkness (lack of sunshine for weeks altogether) as Saturn tilts away from sun (and toward sun) for 90 degree (Earth’s 23.44 degree only) ! Thats means parts of sun will get no sun-light for several weeks in the culmination of these Saturnine equinoxes.

So saturnine means a person who is gloomy or melancholic. ( — perhaps at-least for longer duration.)

I learned this because I was playing with words when grammar of my computer showed the word and I checked its meaning, I was although writing about equinox of Saturn, I came to learn this, cool is it?

chiken tikka theory of how season occurs ! Reply

Take a chicken tikka stick. (you have seen them right? a few pieces of raw chicken is pierced into a stick)

Now ask yourself the question. How to get it minimally and maximally heated up by the fire from sun. If its minimally heated its winter and if its maximally heated its summer.

Now there are 3 primary parameters that influence the situation. One is called distance from the oven that sun is. Two any change that can be made to this distance is governed by two parameter. one when along a particular direction when we look at the oven how far it is? That distance can be changed a lot due to relative motion of earth and sun. Lets say therefore we will hold the chicken stick quite straight so it goes as straight as we stand on a given location on earth. Thats called a perpendicular in some poor mathematicians dictionary.

Uncertainty Principle Again. Reply

2. The object can be a large object, eg say something whose picture you are taking. But as explained above its not the energy of the object (or momentum) which is directly coming into the problem. That would be an added degree of concern if the object is moving with certain velocity, a reason why pictures are blurred. Because motion of objects introduces additional energy-time-momentum-position variables and their corresponding uncertainties. For the argument of the above problem one can imagine the large sized object, lets say a bird, is standing still on a tree while its picture is being taken. In that case if the wavelength of the light [few 100 nano meters = 1/10th of a micrometer] is used (eg in a digital-camera) the corresponding accuracy of the light will be less than micrometers. You can take a very sharp picture of the bird, which is lets say 6 inch long. But when you zoom in to a large degree, the inaccuracies will show up. [in this case how to see a micrometer level image? Is a computer sufficient to show us the uncertain edges of the pixels?] If the wavelength (here visible light) is so small, evidently by de-Broglie relationship, momentum or energy of such light is very large. But its not as large to disturb the feelings of the bird. The bird doesn’t have a problem with visible light, and such energy does not disturb its position or energy or any thing so to say. So while Quantum Mechanics is valid, we are accustomed to say this is a classical mechanics situation. To say QM is invalid is incorrect. To say QM is understood to be valid is a knowledgeable position. More…

How heavy is water molecule? Reply

Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 4:30 am UTC + 05:30

Just a simple calculation, I did, says; the heaviest meson we know, is 35% lighter, than the water molecule, and about 22000 times heavier than electron. I am thinking along side the PDG list of particles; all atoms and molecules can have their properties mentioned …

A quick division by 0.35 gives that water molecule is therefore, 62.86 K heavier than one electron. Thus the water molecule nucleus is 6.29 K times heavier than the total electrons it has revolving around its nucleus. (There are 2 H and 1 O = 10 electrons right? Or is it 18?)
