How you shower offers clues about your loneliness

The longer and hotter the bath, and the more baths you take, the lonelier you tend to be. Read the specifics here:
http://www.lifehack.org/411898/how-long-do-you-take-in-the-shower-it-might-reveal-your-loneliness/

It is so because long, hot showers tend to spark feelings of social warmth and closeness, which, to an extent, mitigates the lack of these feelings in a lonely person.
The length, duration, and temperature of your shower can indicate you're experiencing loneliness

Reflected on Glass

Just another random, fine evening. Nothing extraordinary. Just the living room reflected on the glass of the dining room table.

What America's gun fanatics won't tell you

Most "gun fanatics" in the United States of America use the Second Amendment to the US Constitution to defend their ownership of guns. Nice, and perhaps rather sweet.

Speaking of which, it is interesting to note that these people's interpretation of the Second Amendment is completely bogus. Read about it here:
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/what-americas-gun-fanatics-wont-tell-you-2016-06-14/

America's Founding Fathers incorporated the Second Amendment for a completely different reason (as inferred from their authoritative Federalist Papers). Not so that every Tom, Dick and Harry could own guns.

That perhaps doesn't put "gun fanatics" in legal murky waters, but it does make their argument fundamentally flawed.

Yeah well, all of these are really nice ideas, but let's not forget the most powerful American gun lobby, right?

Sunset

As I said, the sunsets are rather amazing these days, with a myriad of hues.

Do look west in the evening.

Hues of the Sunset

It's almost the end of summer here in India, and monsoon is fast approaching. The sunsets these days are rather amazing, thanks to the clouds.

Just go out one random evening. Look west, and be prepared to be wowed!

Why do we ask people to give up luxuries and sensual pleasures to save the environment? They never will.

I find it rather absurd that there is a significantly large group of people which advocates stuff like not using a swimming pool, cutting down on decorative lighting, abstaining from taking a shower or using a bathtub, etc: all measures of abstaining from luxury, as a solution to the harm we humans cause to the environment by our activities.

That anthropogenic activities harm the environment is beyond question.

But consequently asking people to abstain from luxuries and their sensual pleasures to save the environment is going to be a spectacular failure. Because we humans are sensual beings, and we will never give up our primal desires.

This is what I have to say:
http://astwavelength.wordpress.com/2016/06/16/people-will-not-give-up-luxuries-to-protect-environment/

This is not a solution. There's a better way to do this.
Anthropogenic activities sure do harm the environment. But I am rather appalled at some solutions (taught to schoolkids) which advocate abstaining from luxury and our sensual pleasures. Come wha…

What Makes a Relationship Last?

Ah, the elusive secret of what makes a relationship stand the test of time. Well, let me tell you, I don't have a secret for you.

Read more here, on the actual, scientifically-proven factors that made a relationship last:
http://www.bakadesuyo.com/2016/06/how-to-make-a-relationship-last/

But what I can tell you is that it's not what you think, and it's definitely not similar choices (no thanks to Tinder and dating apps).
Everyone asks how you got married but no one asks how you *stayed* married. Here's what research says about how to make a relationship last.

A Full Bladder May Make You a Better Liar

Excuse me, what? Apparently, having a full bladder makes you a better liar.

Psychology can be really creepy/ridiculous at times.

Read more on (the psychology behind) how the urge to take a pee helps you be a better liar here:
http://www.scienceofpeople.com/2016/05/full-bladder-may-make-better-liar/

And stop laughing, for God's sake.
Seriously science? New research has found that a full bladder may make you a better liar.

This is how real constitutional law works in practice

If you've been following the news recently, you'd know that the state of Maharashtra banned the slaughter of cows, and criminalized the sale and possession of beef, sometime last year.

Haresh Jagtiani, an advocate by profession, was one of the petitioners who challenged the criminalization of the possession and eating of beef as unconstitutional in the Bombay High Court.

He argued that criminalizing eating and possession of beef is a violation of one of our core Fundamental Rights. And yes, he succeeded.

Discover his fascinating, lucid logic that the right to eat beef flows from our constitutional right to life and personal liberty here:
http://www.legallyindia.com/bar-bench-litigation/what-really-pleases-me-is-that-the-right-to-privacy-has-been-upheld-beef-ban-lift-winning-lawyer-haresh-jagtiani

In other words, the logic that didn't lift the ban on the slaughter of cows, but did declare preventing people from eating beef unconstitutional.
The right to eat beef is a part of the right to privacy, which is a part of a citizen’s fundamental right to life, affirmed the Bombay high court today.

It may be a 4-star hotel, but one doesn't get the feeling of a 4-star hotel upon entering it. Leave alone from the outside, you don't get that feeling when inside either. The Eco Hub is much better than this. Maintenance is not fine. Although I haven't stayed here, the hotel doesn't seem very attractive from the outside as a 4-star hotel. A lot of improvement is required, and expected from The Pride Hotel, as a 4-star hotel in a future posh location such as Newtown (India).

It is a world-class destination for those who want to party or just take a swim, and do all that like to while away time. A monthly membership gives you access to all the facilities, which include a gym, swimming pool, badminton court, etc. It is very beautifully decorated. I would personally recommend anyone going there to visit the place at night, the decorative lights are wonderful.

The place is a good centre of knowledge. But it doesn't attract much people, rather appeal to the people. They should try to make the place more appealing to the people, so as to increase the footfall, and thus their revenue and the layman's knowledge about science. An average place in general.
