SLOW AND STEADY? Naah, Meet The Tesla Semi!

Elon Musk has gone over to the next level in the modernization of vehicles ever since he unveiled the ‘Semi Truck’ in Hawthorne, California at SpaceX’s headquarters on the 16th of November, 2017. He obviously thought things through when he played this card because this truck is electrified for a reason! Sure trucks do occupy only a small percentage of our traffic, but that small percentage emits enough smoke to account for a nice big hole in the ozone and all kinds of pollution and diseases. That is because of the heavy amount of diesel they consume of course,

There are two things people want more than money

“There are two things people want more than money. Recognition and praise.” -Mary Kay Ash. As often stated, said, observed and felt, money alone is a factor that has taken many lives, ruined far too many relationships, led to preposterous decisions and well, instigated the discovery of the rarest talent. The lack of this one factor leads us into the destructive phase of depression and henceforth, suicide. It doesn’t even take the help of too much exaggeration to say that we unconsciously worship money. That is to say that we think about it day and night, we believe our

From paper to bits; All over again.

Many years ago, we humans were dependent on human capabilities and limitations for all our work. Everything was done manually and if the work was ‘heavy’ or complex then it was definitely time consuming, erroneous or just not worth it. But all of that changed when computers were born. Where the work was erroneous it became accurate; where it was tedious or time consuming, it became efficient and quick. Our lives were changed immensely because of that shift from paper to bits back then, and now we are possibly in the middle of another such revolution thanks to Satoshi

Fear: The crusification of dreams

Fear; often defined as a distressing emotion aroused by an impending danger has become the most common and basic fact in the world of the living. According to a survey conducted by Casino.org on 1000 Americans, men and women, respond differently to their individual fears. Men are more likely to change their behavior in response to fear than women. The results of the report say that the fear of developing cancer is the highest amongst men and women alike, followed by the fear of a car accident and of developing a heart disease. Here is what the report says about

The world’s most persecuted minority

The Rohingya people claim to be of a Muslim descent and have lived uneasily alongside the Buddhist community of Burma for decades. Currently, there are about 1.1 million Rohingya who lives in the Southeast Asian country and among the country’s 135 official ethnic groups, they have been the ones who have been persecuted and denied citizenship in Myanmar since 1982. There have been mass killings of Muslim men, women and children, cases of rape and arson by the alleged Myanmar state security forces justified by the impudent statement, “unfinished business”. On the 27th of August 2017, in a killing

Ai, blessing or curse in disguise?

Artificial Intelligence is not a foreign concept today. With advancing technologies and no limits to imagination, it is bound to become a necessity in the years to come. However, with every pro comes a con and with AI comes a threat. Elon Musk the co-founder, CEO and Product Architect at Tesla and CEO of SpaceX, believes AI to be a serious threat to humanity. When he says this, he is not referring to the kind of artificial intelligence that companies like Google, Uber, and Microsoft currently use but what may be called super-intelligent entities often found in sci-fi movies.

Trump drops hints on his new strategy in Afghanistan

Donald Trump the distinguished president of the United States, yet again, dropped a mind-blowing, heart-racing and thought-provoking bomb on us in his latest address to the troops at Fort Myer. He started out his address relating to the importance of a victory in this nearly 16-year-old conflict for the Americans. “My original instinct was to pull out, and historically I like following my instincts,” he said. “But all my life, I’ve heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the Oval Office.” He also related to the wrong decisions made by the previous administration

All about the Essential, Essential Phone:

Graceful and powerful-looking as it is with its titanium frame and a ceramic back plate that is bound to be more durable than the aluminum and glass bodies we get on other handsets, Andy Rubin (co-founder of Android) has vowed to make this phone not have any of the features he does not like in today’s smartphones. It was launched in May 2017 and is now up for pre-order in the US. It will be launched later this year in the UK and will cost you a handsome amount of $699. You can purchase it on Amazon and Sprint
