The quality of a scientific paper … A casual reposition. Reply

The quality of a scientific paper are not ZERO if citation is zero. Perhaps we need to define two parameters, quality and significance of scientific communication. Quality; a well done research in the best traditions and methods available. Significance; the outreach of the paper to bring effect into others work and others understanding toward the subject matter.

While there will always be a downside to both parameters, citation reflects the significance (and quality as much as it correlated to significance) of a paper. More…

Why Japanese is the most elaborate Language? Reply

Couple years ago, for this reason, not the kai reason, but any phonetic-word-attempt which gave me tons of kanjis, for same phonetics, I said, Japanese Language has so many synonyms, (perhaps this is anti-synonym, but in my defense, I don’t remember exact word I used, its a memory retrieval, you see) and still Japanese Language unites them all and makes into one language; we can also do this for Indian language.
Indian (Language) would be far easier (than the complexity of Japanese) in that, given, lets say, jack-fruit will have 8 different words only, across India, then, we have to put them all into one syllable-alphabet unit (that can be newly defined, because now we have at-least 20 ways to define) eg Hindi: kathar/kathal, Odi: panas (Telugu also Panas, I know, I asked this to my friend 15 years ago, he was from AP, his name Venkateswaralu Goruganthi, funny fella with thilak on his head, see since when I am doing my language research?) I don’t know more language, lets say: Gujurati: xyz.

Then take all Indian Language and list these into one unit. That unit would be given a special phonetic tag. (Because we don’t have any) The reverse of this has been accomplished by Japanese. By having each meaning for a single phonetic or syllable unit as a kanji (or pictorial unit) they have unified language. Back then I said, 20 some synonyms, (so many = 20) Lets count today.
As if a coincidence I found 20. Although, there would be, some redundant issues here (eg 買い and 買 ) and a few more may be left. (eg I remember, now I know some Japanese Language by memory: kai = write, kai in kaishi = begin). Lets see what we found in Japanese for kai; each of the following is kai, with different meaning. Only one is (sa)kai and couple are not known (just kai, in 2nd line), from where I am searching. Lets then, give their meaning.

Why India can go to Mars and not the atom? Reply

Why India can go to Mars and not the atom? For expenditures, between the Mars and the Atom, the sojourn is not any different.

I worked for a particle lab whose cms energy for electron’s acceleration was roughly 10.5 GeV. Thats basically the energy if each person in India buys a battery of 1 Volt and gifts it to the lab as each battery would accelerate the electron a level of 1 eV and roughly the population of India would be needed to accelerate the electron to 10.5 GeV, assuming each one’s battery accelerates to 1 eV. There will be other similar expenditures also, but this is like the electric bill for the electron. Says why Particle Physics is not really as expensive for the country as are eg riot expenditures or even Diwali crackers. More…

A note about vowels in different languages. 1

( — The rendering is called as transliteration rules, eg if 1) a is said as a as in Apple or 2) a as in saw 3) a as in Asia or 4) a as in Daddy. They are 4 different transLIT rules hence 4 types of phonetic rendering of the same alphabetic-element a, a fact is used differently in different language. Similarly e fact is used differently, examples: e as in episode or e as in pen or e as in Pythagorean etc.)

Then a language is supposed to strictly define all these rules. In imitating English eg Indian languages have perhaps forgotten this basic notion and produced an immensely complex version of their own. There is therefore absolutely no point in objecting to use of English, anywhere. The thing that sucks about English is “they” are often not explicitly claiming that English likes to hide its rules, when English gets spoken enough the rules become clear, a fact immensely inconvenient for non-natives.

House is to brick what society is to family and … Reply

Apply this to the education system, we can’t criticize the students, the teachers or the admin for ever, once a reasonable bits and pieces of them (and only that no less) is in place we can’t go on around criticizing the same. WE can’t blame the teacher for ever nor can we blame the students for ever. Then we talk about education system. But whats a education system? Do we define it? WE have to first define it from its bits and pieces and see the links and processes in its most effective info-graphic, if thats possible. That would be like a carbon-cycle. We do understand that (carbon-cycle) perfectly, why else we would understand our physiology so well? (we may not be applying such in a given situation, thats another dimension and thats criticism-awaiting) .

We need to therefore see exactly how our education system is defined: here is higher education department and it consists of so and so with such and such qualification assigned to execute such and such. That follows regional level officers who are assigned with such and such power and privilege and RESPONSIBILITY. Then comes the tertiary level and the ground workers. And here is the process. We need to thoroughly understand the principle and the process behind each component in this info-graphic, and how effective they are. Then we need to objectify the big-picture goal and see what gets carried out and what NOT. More…
