How To Be James Bond: Science Explains Why He's Irresistible To Women

This might seem stupid, but there's some real serious psychology and evolutionary biology in play here.

Without me rambling further, head over, and read it:

Good luck being an embodiment of some of these qualities (although there's no way you'd get all of them, you'd then be James Bond himself).
Want to know how to be James Bond? The 10 qualities that make Bond so amazing with women can actually be backed up by scientific research.

Reflective Chrome

While travelling through central Kolkata, keep your eyes peeled. And if you have a camera, keeping it tucked away would be the greatest sin for a photographer.

You might just end up spotting some glamorous classic icon, like this Royal Enfield, shining in all its glory.

How do you maximize your (creative) productivity?

It's simple. Wake up early in the morning, and do all your creative stuff then. Don't postpone all that work for later in the day.

Needless to say, supported by science.

Paths to an awesome life

To make a long story short, it's your "social network" that matters. Hanging around with people you want to be is what leads you to better yourself.

Sounds cryptic, right? Well, I guess you need to read the entire story here:

The Ground Reality in Greece

Thanks to the media (in general), people are crying crazy over Greece nowadays. Some even go on to blame the "worthless people", who can't manage anything........

Far from it. People in Greece are helping their own countrymen, by voluntarily contributing whatever they can.

Read the truth about how people deal with the crisis in Greece.

And thanks to our stereotypes, we never get to know, or rather, choose to ignore these great gestures of humanity.
Doing research in Greece these past five months since the January elections, and especially during the week since the referendum was announced, has been a bit like living in a twilight zone in term...

War In Space Might Be Closer Than Ever

As reported by the Scientific American, several countries continue to develop weapons to wage a possible future war in space. And these are the very same countries who have pledged to "demilitarize" space.

It's definitely something to ponder over. Read more here:
China, Russia and the U.S. are developing and testing controversial new capabilities to wage war in space despite their denial of such work

Go and simulate a nuclear explosion. You decide the yield, and its location, and its type.

And let Nukemap script the history of the world, just in case you have your way (let's hope you don't).
Nukemap: an intriguing and informative simulator.

I found Nukemap to be very interesting. For instance, here below you see the analysis for a Hiroshima-type atomic bomb attack on the Vancouver, BC area. I set the centre point at the Oakridge Mall, an area in the residential heart of the city. I was struck by how small the actual damage area is. However, as you can see, there would be an estimated 56,000 deaths and nearly 120,000 injuries. 

Nukemap has numerous settings to try, ranging from the yield of the bomb to the nature of its detonation (air or surface).

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam passes away

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, the renowned scientist, passed away today. He succumbed to a cardiac arrest while delivering a lecture at IIM Shillong.

This great personality has influenced many, with his words, thoughts and ideas, and his flowing silver locks. As the nation mourns tomorrow, with the Indian Flag fluttering at half-mast, Dr. Kalam shall forever continue to live in our hearts.

More than mourning, let us strive to take his vision of a new India forward.

Vividly Human

We found ourselves in a situation today, while on our way to school. 

Well, you know what? People always turn up to help. Even those people whom you've never seen before would voluntarily offer you help.

And more so when you're in the City of Joy.
People always turn up to help, often with you even asking. And more so when you're in the City of Joy.

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.
