Meditation

Posted March 2, 2016

Meditation is very popular now a days. People have described it in different ways.

My suggestion is very simple and will describe it as follows.

Select a separate peaceful and quiet place.

Sit quietly , close the eyes and concentrate on yourself.

Put head down facing towards your heart.

Now just say to yourself that you will not do back biting, you will not say bad words for others.

There are so many good things which you can think and convince yourself about during meditation period.

You can think daily two or three good things and meditate yourself about those.

This simple procedure will relieve you of tension and worries.

I will give you the list of the things which disturb your life in the next session.

Soda or soft drinks, Their Effects on teeth

Posted Feb. 4, 2016

There is one study done on 9000 thousands men and women over a period of 4 years. They were taking at least one soda per day.

This group has the likely increased risk of diagnosis of metabolic syndrome by 44%.

Effect of soda on teeth is obvious and soda leads to decay of the teeth. This will affects all ages irrespective of sex. Acid and sugar in the soft drinks soften the teeth enamel which will lead to cavitation formation.

Sugar free drinks has less calories but the damage to the teeth is same.

You can do some remedy like wash or rinse your mouth after drinking the soda.

Fluoride toothpaste prevents the decay of teeth.

Driverless Car , Automatic driven car

Posted Jan. 25, 2016

This is interesting discovery of the present era that car without driver. In California cars without drivers are  driven over million of miles.

I think in the next 5 to 10 years these cars will be easily available in the USA.

Question is that how it will affect the society. That is more interesting.

1. Old people will be able to move around  otherwise who can not drive.

2. The seating arrangement will be changed that you can turn the chairs and face to each other. So you can play cards, or chess or read the books.

But electronic lovers will be busy with computers or mobile phones.

3. This will affect the oil industry. There will be less consumption of oil (gas). The number of car will decrease e.g. one car can drop me  to the office and then can come back to my house.

Now it can take kids to the school and again after dropping the kids can come back. You don’t need to hold the car for whole day in your office.

4. Like Uber there will be so many companies who can provide the car service. Then you may not even need to buy car. Just become member of that car service.

5. The chances of accidents will decrease.

These cars are going to change the the pattern of life. These cars will affect the Cars and petrochemical industry. 

The entire globe will see the change.
