Unforgettable smile-Monalisa

 Mona Lisa also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde is a sixteenth-century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel in Florence, Italy by Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci during the Renaissance.
The work is currently owned by the Government of France and is on display at the Musée du Louvre museum in Paris under the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo.
Arguably, it is the most famous and iconic painting in the world.
The painting is a half-length portrait and depicts a seated woman whose facial expression is frequently described as enigmatic.Others believe that the slight smile is an indication that the subject is hiding a secret. The mystery behind the ambiguity of the subject's expression have been revealed,solved by scientists.

For nearly five hundred years , people have gazed at leonardo da vinci's portrait of monalisa with a sense of bafflement . First she is smiling ,then the smile fades a moment later it returns,only to disappear again. Now, scientists claim to have uncovered the secret of how davinci produced the optical effects that created monalisa's enigmatic smile.

A team in europe has found that artist managed to achieve this smoky effect known as "sfumato" on the painting by applying up to fourty layers of extremely thin glaze,thought to have been smeared on with his fingers.

DNA test may predict your child's talent-ACTN3 sports gene

An increasing number of curious parents are going to subject their children to a DNA test to determine what they will be best at as adults in future.

Already in the developed countries like us and Europe such tests have progressed to determine the child's potential IQ,memory power.

It will help the parents the way they  groom  children.

Even, India has started using to  to ascertain what sport their children will do best in when they grow up.
“Analysis of the ACTN3 gene can be used to predict the kind of muscle fibre the child will develop as he/she grows up. Based on this we can figure out the body’s capacity to adapt to different sports,” says a leading orthopedic surgeon,Mr Naresh Padmanaban in Chennai.

The sample can collect as many as 10,000 cells that enable scientists to isolate up to 40 different genes.

By studying the genetic code, scientists can extract specialized DNA information about a child's IQ, athletic ability, artistic ability, emotional control, focus and other talents and even health and disease related factors.

Doctors use information extracted from what they claim is the "sports Gene" to predict what kind of game the child will be best suited to.

Top ten movies of Decade

My Top ten list of best movies,I made this list at ultimate risk.This turned out more harder than i thought when i was compiling the later half of the decade where the best movies are released(Departed,Batman begins,Avatar,prestige,Ameile,...etc)
1)Lord of Rings Trilology
2)city of God
3)Childern of Men 
4)The Dark Knight 
5)The Departed/Star wars :Revenge of Sith.
7)Matrix sequels/Requiem for a dream
9)District 9
10)V for vedentta/Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
No doubt lord of rings trilogy deserves the top place in each and every ones list ever made. Made during one long production shot in newzeland by "Peter jackson " and released as christmas presents for three years 2001-2003 .every movie is a master piece to itself and excelles in all fields .This adoption of J.R.Tolken's middle of earth master piece grossed $1 billion world wide. The series has grabbed 17 oscars.this is astonishing film series ever been undertaken.

City of god a 2002 brazillian crime drama movie which is unseen by most of us.
If you haven't seen this film yet ,then better watch it now.
It depicts the growth of organized crime in the Cidade de Deus suburb of Rio de Janeiro, between the end of the '60s and the beginning of the '80s, with the closure of the film depicting the war between the drug dealer Li'l Zé and criminal Knockout Ned.

Children Of Men is a science fiction film set in 2027 a world in which women stopped getting pregnant since 2029.It follows the plight of Clive Owen and the only women who got pregnant in 18 years and traces their journey to a 'Human Project' which offers the only safe sanctuary from all forces that threaten to exploit the mother and child for political reasons.

The Departed a Martin Scorsese film,the greatest and my favourite director alive this one had a complex plot and got some extraordinary cast Oscar winner JackNicholson,Leonardo De caprio,Matt Damon,Mark Whalberg.This cop-criminal thriller is hell of cast and Director Martin at HELM.

Though i'm not a star wars guy.(i was a big fan of star trek).I was agreed to put this much hyped movie on my top because it was a damn good movie. It may be not be technically as that of star trek(obviously star trek has great scope of technology as there are from future). It had got some extra ordinary visuals especially tremendous battles, the lightsaber made me mad for the first time .revenge of sith excells all parts of series .hayden christine did awesome job in this movie compared to his boy next door looks in previous movies.

Matrix is a classic science fiction movie that was ground breaking trend setter for its complex story line and specific effects . If the sequels of high fi movie had done well, it would have seen higher in list . But still it was the most thrilling movies everyone have to see in life.
After the matrix wachowski brothers decided to go with best.hugo weaving was at his best. Though he was behind the mask ,he made a hell of job.it was fun to watch him.

Requiem for a dream is an exquisitely beautiful film featuring great music.Requiem For A Dream is the 'drug' film that is in one word-depressing and in other great.It is must watch  movie of this decade,i dont how many times i saw it.
I would like to mention in special list Which includes adriean body's oscar winning portrayal of a jewish musician in "THE PIANOIST" ,coen brothers "NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MAN"
Clint eastwood's Mystic river starring oscar winner sean pean.

spilberg's Minority Report,Artificial Intelligence,Munich,Catch Me If You Can.
for the first half of this decade he was the best director and christopher Nolan dominated the second half with High fi movies The DArk knight,Batman Begins and The Prestige.
there are so many numbers are short i could not place then .they are film excellence in recent times.

Microbe cleaned up spilt oil, scientists

A great quote from the hollywood blockbuster "Kungfu Panda" which says "there are no accidents",everything have a reason which  found to be true in this case.

An accident bring you good news.After the disatrous oil spill in gulf of Mexico ,the concerns of the environmentalists are making news over past few months. Everyday these accidents are happening somewhere or the other causing a great damage to world.

It was an impossible task  to clear the petroluem spill.Some part of the spill can be removed using modern technology.Another method was to break the complex organic hydrocarbons into dissolvable substances by microbes.Hence they adopted the classical method of degrading oil.

 A species of bacteria found in the Gulf of Mexico degrades oil faster at deeper and colder depths than expected, scientists said in a study that could explain how the BP oil spill has mostly disappeared.

The bacteria not only speeds up the bio-degradation of crude oil, but does it without depleting vital oxygen levels in the water, the scientists said.


What is Gmat??
The Graduate Management Admission Test Standardised computer adaptive test  mathematics and the English language for measuring aptitude to succeed academically in graduate business studies conducted on behalf of Graduate Management Admission council of US.
The scores of these tests are used as one of the most important parameters by Universities and top B Schools in the US and elsewhere while selecting prospective students into their MBA and Ph.D programs .

Pattern of Exam

The GMAT Computer Adaptive Test or the GMAT CAT comprises three sections. Each of the three sections is separately timed.

The first section of the GMAT test is an essay writing section and is known as the Analytical Writing Assessment Section (GMAT AWA Section). The next two sections in the GMAT test are objective type sections, one of which is the Quantitative section and the other is the Verbal section.

Section 1.a - Analysis of an Issue (30 min)
The first section in GMAT-CAT is an analytical writing task and has to be completed in the first 30 minutes. In this section, the candidate is expected to analyse an issue, take a position and support it using relevant reasons and examples from his or her own experience, observation, or reading.
Section 1.b - Analysis of an Argument (30 min)
The second section in GMAT-CAT is also an assesment of analytical writing skills and is to be completed during the next 30 minutes. In this task, the candidate has to analyse how logically persuasive the argument presented in the question is?

Each of the two essays in the Analytical Writing part of the test is graded on a scale of 0 (the minimum) to 6 (the maximum):
0 An essay that is totally illegible or obviously not written on the assigned topic.
1 An essay that is fundamentally deficient.
2 An essay that is seriously flawed.
3 An essay that is seriously limited.
4 An essay that is merely adequate.
5 An essay that is strong.
6 An essay that is outstanding.

This section (Quantitative) consists of multiple-choice questions delivered in a computer-adaptive format. Questions in this sections are dynamically selected as you take the test. Therefore, your test will be unique, and the multiple-choice questions will adjust to your ability level. A total of 37 questions are served in this section and comprise two types of questions within this section viz., Problem Solvingand Data Sufficiency.

Section 3 - Verbal Section (75 min) - 41 questions
The last section in GMAT - CAT is the Verbal section. This one is also a multiple-choice section delivered in a computer-adaptive format. There are three types of questions in this section viz., Reading Comprehension, Sentence Correction and Critical Reasoning.
Total score
The "Total Score", composed of the quantitative and verbal sections, is exclusive of the analytical writing assessment (AWA), and ranges from 200 to 800. About two-thirds of test takers score between 400 and 600. The score distribution resembles a bell curve with a standard deviation of approximately 100 points, meaning that the test is designed for 68% of examinees to score between 400 and 600, while the median score was originally designed to be near 500.Your performance in the GMAT AWA sections is rated on a scale of 1 to 6.

At the end of the GMAT test, you will be given an unofficial score for the second and third section (i.e. the multiple choice Quantitative and Verbal sections). The official GMAT scores that include your performance in the Analytical Writing Assessment will be sent by mail to you a few weeks after you have taken the GMAT test.
Best scores 
The average score for nearly all of the top business schools, as commonly listed in popular magazines and ranking services, is in the upper 600s or low 700s.
Cost and preparation
*Cost of Exam is $250.
*You may not take the GMAT more than once within 31 days, even if the scores are canceled.

A team used observations from the European Southern Observatory (Eso) in Chile concluded the presence of five planets and evindence say that are still two yet to be identified in planetory system.

The five gas giants are between 13 and 25 times as massive as the Earth and take between six and 600 days to orbit the star, writes Lovis in a paper published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.

And one the other two uncofirmed was similar to Saturn and other planet would be the least massive exoplanet ever discovered, say astronomers, with a mass around 1.4 times that of the Earth.

The star is now named as "HD 10180"127 light years far,in the constellation Hydrus with HARPS (High Accuracy Radio velocity planet Searcher)spectrogrh.

How to clear your sensitive information on system shutdown(CLear virtual memory)

                   CLear virtual memory

what is swapping,virutual memory
During data processing operating systems use the hard disk as memory. It is called the virtual memory. During processing, operating system transfers some amount of data from RAM to hard disk and reloads again when required. The operating system exchanges the data and programs between RAM and hard disk. The data or programs are stored in hard disk in temporary file called the swap file. The word “swap” means exchange. This technique of swapping data between memory and hard disk is called paging.Os spends some amount of time in paging process by bringing the pages to ram.
But the problem is that while working you use different software programs on computer and page file may contain your confidential information.
To reduce this risk, you can set your computer to clear out page file automatically each time you shutdown your computer.
follow steps given below to set your system clear page file automatically
              *Logged into your computer with administrative rights
              *First click on start button to open control panel
              *Click here on “Administrative Tools“ option.Go to “Local Security Settings” ,on lift side of this panel click on “Local Policies“.
             *Click on “Security Options” then double click on “Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile” option.
             *Now small dialog box will appear with options, “Enabled or Disabled” the page file.
             *Select the “Enabled”  to set clear page file each time you shutdown computer.
            *Press Apply button to save settings and then click on Ok to finish

Difference between Virus ,worm and trojans

The most common Misassmption in computer terminology is wether to call a trojan virus or worm.
what is virus,what is a worm.While the words Trojan, worm and virus are often used interchangeably, they are not exactly the same.viruses worms trojans all are malicious programs which adversely effects the behaviour of computer.
What is a virus?
A virus is a computer program that alters the way the computer operates.A virus is a program that replicates itself on computer systems, usually through executable software, and causes damage.
 A virus can spread from one computer to other computer by opening a virus infected email atachment,clicking on a malicious link,transfering files from one to other.It will often place its self in executable paths there by decreasing cpu efficency.
What is a Worm?
A computer worm is a self-replicating malware computer program. The uncontrolable replication consumes sytem resources slowing or in some cases even aborting other tasks.
It uses a computer network to send copies of itself to other.It uses network flaws to spread.
This is in contrast to viruses, which requires the spreading of an infected host file. Although worms generally exist inside of other files, often Word or Excel documents, there is a difference between how worms and viruses use the host file. Usually the worm will release a document that already has the "worm" macro inside the document. The entire document will travel from computer to computer, so the entire document should be considered the worm.
What is a trojan Horse?

Trojan is a malware that may appear to be legitimate but infact it does malicious activities .It access the users Remote information.Unlike viruses it doenst replicate causing the system to work slow(reducing the processing power,cpu utilization) but they can make a hell of job .Trojan alters the behaviour of computer by uncontrolable popups,adware
These trojan horses are used by hackers to steal the personal information.

Most Advanced Microscope of World

Canadian center for Electron Microscopy has developed a new powerful microscope Titan 80-300 cubed that is the most powerful microscope till now.

According to Gianluigi Botton, Director of Canadian center for Electron Microscopy, says that the power of this microscope can be thought as equivalent to "taking Hubble Telescope and aiming it at atomic level"

"With this microscope we can now easily identify atoms, measure their chemical state and even probe the electrons that bind them together," added  Botton.
John Preston, director of McMaster's Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research, said  scientists will be now  able to understand, alter and improve products' efficiency which help in diagnosis of a disease.
scientists are planning to use the titan to make research on protiens and for drug delievery to identify cancer.
Fei company,a Netherlands Based company which supplies electron microscope tools for manufactures and researchers build this microscope with an estimated cost of $15 million .

Predators is a remake of the classic 80's action movie which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of comodos being hunted by an extra terristial predator ,animal in the middle of the forest .It eventually had a two sequels that ended this franchise .

In a season of remakes, re-imagining's and sequels, Predators certainly lives up to what's expected of it.

As the name suggests predators conists of more than one which excites ,terrebles than the original one.

Genres: Action/Adventure, Suspense/Thriller
Director: Nimród Antal
producer :Robert Rodriguez(sincity,Once upon a time in  Mexico,Spykids)
Cast: Adrien Brody , Alice Braga , Laurence Fishburne , Topher Grace , Danny Trejo .


A group of hardened killers find themselves parachuted onto an alien world ,planet "game reverse" where they soon reliase they are set out as prey to Predators.These Mercenaries, murderers, gangsters, and convicts, they were the most feared men on Earth.But they must learn  who, or what, they are up against.
knowing the fact they cannot do alone they join together to try and  find a way to escape from the hell.

Positives: the action element was the biggest strength to the film,they are choreographed well and manages to be both exciting for it's audience and have enough suspense and tension at the same time.
special effects are terrific against the small budget($40 million).
Music resembles the original Predator and some amount of dialogues.
Lawrence Fishburne who played Noland's performance was terrific. He plays an ex-marine who has been on the planet for so long, he has become mentally unstable as he keeps talking to himself.

Adrien Brody(The pianist ) academy award winner who plays fearless mercenary Royce was literally dumped .Adrien Brody is very good actor but is rather a surprise choice for a movie like this.
His character development was weak.he is not apt for this character. No one will be mistaking Adrien Brody for Arnold Schwarzenegger anytime soon, but I don't think he ruins things, either
Its not his fault its the script's.
A few potentially significant introductions in the film were left disappointingly unexplored.
There is a weak support from the rest of the cast.
The beginning seems to be missing how they into the Planet  and so  a proper ending.

kudos to the writers for making the film as a piece of shit .

Predators is a return to form for the Predator franchise after the sloppy "Alien Vs Predator: Requiem" and is a worthy addition to the genre but it still lacks the pace of the original .
Overall Predators is an entertaining movie but lack of intelligence near the end, thin story, no character development .
