The earth is flat, not round!

The earth is flat, not round!

Mike Hughes, a U.S. citizen who believes and advocates that the earth is flat, not round, was killed in a rocket accident near California on February 22.

Mike, who is also a skilled 'stuntman', had set a unique record in his life. That's why he was known as 'Mad' Mike Hughes.

The fact that the earth is round was estimated by the Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras about 2500 years ago. Shortly after that, the philosopher Aristotle proved it.

Without believing this fact, Mike was trying to prove that the earth was flat. For this, he used to run various campaigns. How many of them had planned to reach space by riding their own rocket.

Not only Mike, but many people in the world still believe that the earth is flat. This group lives in the American and British territories. They also have their own organization called 'Flat Earth Society' and have about 200,000 followers on its Facebook page.

Their argument is that in this world, wherever you walk, the earth looks flat and so does the experience. The ball is nowhere to be seen. So the earth is flat.

This group of people think that the sun and the moon are only about 3000 miles above the earth and their circumference is only about 32 miles. Similarly, the stars are thought to be about 3,100 miles high. Satellite imagery of the globe has been falsified by NASA and other government agencies.

They are very skeptical about this and say, 'The flat earth is round and the elite, especially the businessmen from the royal family like Rockefeller, are deceiving and ruling the people.'

They see it as 'conspiracy theory'.

Conspiracy Theory:

The fact that the earth is flat became an example of a 'conspiracy theory'. According to Eric Oliver and Tom Udka, professors of political science at the University of Chicago, about 50 percent of Americans believe in at least one conspiracy theory.

According to Professor Oliver, people who believe in conspiracy theories fear conspiracy according to their beliefs. Such people believe in occult powers, such as magic, ghosts, and phantoms.

We also have people who believe in 'conspiracy theory'. Exactly how many, but there are many. Durbar massacre, Madan-dependent scandal, Yeti Manav etc. They strongly believe in unproven arguments rather than in official matters.

There are many such doubts in the society and sometimes even the politics is being affected by such mentality. Lately, our MCC project has been suffering from this.

The difference between asking a question and suspecting a conspiracy:

In a democracy, the culture of questioning, monitoring and debating plays an important role in making society transparent and accountable. It is necessary to have questions and debates from the center to the local level on issues that are not understood and doubted.

But the culture of questioning has not developed well in our society. In our society, which is evolving from a gurukula education system and feudal culture, asking questions is not so positively accepted. Even the political leadership does not like to be questioned. Instead, they question the questioner.

Even if no one likes it, the society should continue to ask questions and the right to ask questions should be protected. If we want to make the society conscious, transparent and responsible, the culture of debate must be allowed to flourish.

There is a big difference between asking questions based on facts and just suspecting a conspiracy.

For example, it makes sense to question or supplement what facts make the earth round, knowledge grows.

But if he insists that the earth is flat and round, it is a conspiracy. This makes the debate meaningless.

Less questions but more apprehensions:

We also have structural problems in the culture of asking questions. For one thing, our education has never taught us to question. There is no think tank to analyze the facts and stir up the ideology of the society. That is why questions are more likely to be emotional than facts and evidence. Impulse helps to create suspicion.

Our universities are almost dormant in this regard. Even in that, they are overwhelmed by political maneuvers. There are no government 'think tanks', but they have become a place to appoint their own cadres.

In this case, the non-governmental sector can do something. But for a long time, the government did not help develop knowledge through the non-governmental sector. Even if someone tried, they were easily discouraged by saying 'dollar-oriented'.

Not only in the society, but also in our Parliament, it is not seen that necessary debates and useful ideas are included.

Let's look at the last example - this year's budget was presented to Parliament by the Finance Minister. There was a debate in the parliament but it was like tying a cat in mourning. It was passed without any amendment saying it was a practice from the Panchayat. Why debate if you don't want to modify and improve? MPs have no role in the budget? Even the lawmakers who passed did not understand their role.

MCC: The question is whether there is a suspicion of conspiracy

This is the culture of our debate and the questioning. Let's look at MCC in conjunction with this.

In the history of foreign aid of more than six decades, there has never been as much discussion in any project as there has been in MCC. Projects with bigger and more far-reaching effects have been implemented and are being implemented, but in general, more than one branch of the Ministry of Finance was not much interested in them.

But the long-running discussion and debate about MCC is a really good start.

Questions have been raised on social media, and discussions are taking place among experts. MPs and political parties are also holding discussions. As a result, much has been made public about the project. So maybe, the recently published 'Ad Transparency Index-2020' has been evaluated as a 'very good' project based on transparency.

Analyzing the information that has become public from the discussions, this project is an important contribution to our infrastructure development (especially transmission line and road improvement). Which our government has proposed after a long study and discussion.

But if you only suspect a conspiracy, there is no answer. For example, it was rumored that 'US troops will now come to Nepal from the door of MCC and build a military base'.

Looking at the discussions so far, the MCC is purely non-military assistance. Such apprehensions are not answered.

Let's look at the next part: "This is a US strategy to encircle China."

The correct answer is not found. There is only doubt. Suppose, and this is the American strategy. For this, the United States can use other projects. You don't have to fall into this trap.

For example, there are many foreign-assisted projects in Nepal that are bigger and more far-reaching than the MCC. East-West Highway Improvement is a World Bank project. The Muzaffarpur-Dhalkewar 400 KV transmission line has been constructed with the World Bank's money (मिल 99 million). There was no debate, no doubt.

If the United States wants, it can infiltrate its interests through the World Bank in Washington!

Geopolitical significance:

Since we are in a complex geography, we should not form a close relationship with anyone and a distant relationship with anyone. Both India and China are equally important and sensitive to us. At the same time, relations with the United States and Europe are equally important for a balanced international relationship.

So why the fierce opposition from the MCC?

In our society, as discussed at the outset, there is a large and powerful group of people who believe in conspiracy theories. Who is always skeptical and talks of alternative streams. I prefer to 'romance' in the discussion than to discuss for a solution. This group has been well used by the Maoists in the past. The same group is also active against the MCC.

There is another group of 'capitalist communists' - adopting the lifestyle of the middlemen-bourgeoisie but giving the classical discourse of the proletarian communist in politics. This group has long been led by the Communist Party. So whatever they may have in mind, they cannot say that they accept US aid in public.

There is also a third group - frustrated by prejudices such as having been denied a US visa at some point in the past, or not being selected for the project. This group is arguing that this is the opportunity.

The fourth group is the opposition within the government. Joe thinks that by raising the MCC agenda, Prime Minister KP Oli can be dissolved.

Joe, wherever, anyway, is trying to ‘confuse’ others by suspecting a conspiracy about MCC. They are also very active and creative on social media and YouTube.

Interesting thing about Mike Hughes saying 'Earth is flat':

After Mike's death, his public relations representative, Darren Sutter, told the LA Times:

Mike Hughes' rumor that the earth is flat was merely 'for publicity'. This issue helped bring Mike into the spotlight. But, as far as I know, Mike himself had no belief that the earth was flat. That was not an empty thing.

At first, everyone had some misgivings about MCC. When the debate took place, the project selection process, its management and the legal aspects of our treaty-act provisions are almost clear.

Even those who have long feared the MCC and wanted to come to the fore have no doubt that the project is important for the country's infrastructure development.

Donating 40,000 Corona Testing Kits is no small feat for us at  500 million. Moreover, it should not be lost when financial resources are shrinking. The problem is, skeptics, like Mike Hughes, are reluctant to acknowledge this fact in public because of their ego.

So, it would have been easier if the leadership of the government at this time had given our 'Mike Hughes' the opportunity to do 'face saving'!

1.3 billion tons of plastic load, how will the earth?

1.3 billion tons of plastic load, how will the earth?

According to a study, within the next 20 years, our earth will have to carry 1.3 billion tons of plastic.

If the use of plastics is not reduced, the weight of plastic waste dumped on the earth will exceed one billion tons by 2040.

According to a report published in the journal Science, the problem of plastic pollution is increasing in the world.

This is a frightening fact, according to Dr. Costas Valis, a researcher at the University of Leeds. However, we have the technology and the opportunity to meet this challenge.

"Any kind of picture could happen in the next 20 years and this is the first comprehensive assessment of that," he said. It's really hard to estimate, but by 2040, if the plastics on Earth were to be laid on a flat surface, they could cover up to 1.5 times the total area of ​​the UK. Estimating this is complicated, as plastic is available everywhere in the world. How to solve the problem of plastic is not an easy task. The work is complicated, as plastic is available everywhere in the world. How to solve the plastic problem is not an easy task. '

Researchers studied the production, use and management of plastics around the world in order to turn the dire situation of plastics into statistics. They then developed a model that could predict future plastic pollution problems.

Given the current trend of increasing plastic production and no significant change in the amount of reuse and recycling, the world will accumulate 1.3 billion tons of plastics by 2040.

But if the production of plastics is reduced, reused and recycled and the use of other products instead of plastics is increased, the amount of plastics going to sea will decrease by 80 percent by 2040, say researchers.

Here are some tips to help you solve the plastic problem

According to the researchers, such steps need to be taken to solve the huge problem of plastics in the world:

To reduce the increase in production and consumption of plastics

Promote the use of paper, jute and other perishable materials instead of plastic

Designing production and packaging materials for recycling

Increase garbage collection rate in middle and low income countries and support unorganized sector

The construction related sector will manage 23 percent of non-recyclable plastics produced by itself

To reduce the export of plastic waste

According to Dr. Valis, if all possible steps are taken, an additional 710 million tons of plastic waste will be added to the environment in the next two decades.

There is no reliable solution

There is no reliable solution to the plastic problem. The study also sheds light on a fact that is often overlooked.

According to researchers, about 2 billion people in developing countries in Africa, Latin America and Asia, known as the Southern Hemisphere, still do not have access to waste management facilities. They either have to burn the garbage or throw it away.

According to Dr. Valis, those who collect and dispose of garbage are the soldiers of the recycling front who are not evaluated. Those soldiers of cleanliness should be appreciated and supported. BBC

Instagram to beat Twitter as news source

Instagram to beat Twitter as news source

Instagram, a social networking site that doubled the number of users who saw themselves as a means of receiving news in the past year, is on track to overtake Twitter as a news source, according to research.

The Reuters Institute Digital News Report 2020 shows that the trend of using Instagram for news has doubled since 2018. It is even stronger among the youth. According to the study, around a quarter of people in the UK between the ages of 18 and 24 used Instagram as a source of news to learn about the corona virus.

But social media has also been found to be one of the least trusted news sources. Only 26 percent said they believed the news about the corona virus being shared on social media. The same average belief was expressed in the news shared through Facebook Messenger and other chat apps.

59 percent trust both the national government and the news agency. More than a third of those surveyed are using Instagram, and two-thirds of them are now under 25.
Similarly, 11 percent use Instagram for news, which is one point less than Twitter.

"Instagram is becoming more and more popular among young people," said Nick Newman, lead author of the study.

Climate change, the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement in the United States, and the coronavirus have been the subject of much-talked-about news in recent months.
Instagram is owned by social networking company Facebook. WhatsApp is also owned by Facebook.

The survey, conducted in 40 countries, also looked at the credibility of news and news organizations. Only 38 percent said they believe the news in most cases. Less than half of those surveyed, or 46 percent, said they believed in the news source they liked.
After the Kovid-19 epidemic, the credibility of news organizations increased to 59 percent.

A Reuters study showed a significant expansion of Instagram as a news source, suggesting that Facebook's decision to buy the network was one of the most lucrative in history. Newman, the study's author, said that between April and May, the number dropped by 11 points, despite more confidence in the media and the government than ever before.

Although not formally part of the study, recent surveys have shown that the "moment of national unity" is over. In addition to analyzing credibility, the study also discusses the "silent majority" who say they view "neutral" news.

Since 2013, the report's authors have stopped asking this question because of a growing tendency to express opinions and to be open-minded in news writing. In the nine countries studied, participants said they would like to hear news from a 'no-brainer' news source.

Such views were most strongly expressed in Germany, Japan, the UK and Denmark. These countries have strong and independent public broadcasters, the report said.

Google says '11 percent of Nepalis still at home'

Google says '11 percent of Nepalis still at home'

Google has been publishing reports from time to time on how the movement and activities of people in society are changing due to coronavirus (Covid-19). Google released a new 'Community Mobility Report' on Thursday, based on a study from last Tuesday.

According to the report, the activities in the homes of Nepalis have not been completed yet. Compared to the normal situation, 11 percent Nepalis are still at home.

Activities in other areas are gradually becoming normal. But the excitement at home is still there.

Based on Google Maps, Google has divided the study area into 6 different categories. These include entertainment, supermarkets and pharmacies, parks, public transport, work areas and housing.

According to Google's report, the number of people visiting restaurants, cafes, shopping centers, museums, libraries, movie theaters and other places in Nepal is still 35 percent less than usual. However, compared to March, it has increased by 43 percent, according to Google.

In March, activity at such locations had dropped by 78 percent. Similarly, the activity of people in grocery, food, agricultural market, pharmacy, supermarket and other places is still 17 percent less.

Activities in national parks, river banks, public gardens, etc. have been reduced by 21 percent. Similarly, activities in public transport, bus parks and other places have decreased from 74 percent to 36 percent compared to March.

According to a report by Google, 34 percent of people are still unable to attend work.

The number of people returning to the area, which was reduced by 72 percent in March, seems to be increasing. On this basis, Google concludes that 11 percent of people are still at home.

Nepal and Nepali's new 'address'/'Thegana'

Everyone has their own personal experiences and experiences. There are many examples of those experiences that have made a difference in people's lives.

The story of the popular messaging app Viber in Nepali society was also an experience. Talmon Marco started Viber to shorten the hours-long journey to visit his girlfriend.

Similarly, Garrett Camp, the founder of Uber, has become the owner of billions of dollars by turning an unpleasant experience of paying eight hundred dollars into rent into an opportunity.

Similarly, there are many Nepali products born from one's own experience. A vivid example of this is 'Address Service'. Address i.e. digital map of Nepali.

The streets of Patan were smooth and if Vishal KC could have easily found his friend's office, it would not have become an 'address' today.

KC, who returned to Nepal after a long stay in the United States, had never followed the streets of Patan before. He lost his roof based on the location given by his friend. Reaching a friend's office through that street of Patan proved to be a Mahabharata for him.

Casey recalls, "I went ahead and showed the location of my friend's office to the locals. But, I could not reach the address I had to go. I had to call my friend to pick him up by giving him the address where he was standing. '

The journey to the friend's office is over. But, in my mind, the map of the new journey began to be drawn. After returning from a friend's office, he spent the next few months searching for a way to cross the street.

KC recalls, ‘I thought it would be possible to map Nepal digitally. So that you can easily reach your destination by pointing to a digital number. '

However, not all the streets in Kathmandu had a separate name. The government has not done much in this regard. After brainstorming for about eight months, he finally took the journey of his mind to the place of 'address'. Which was a unique location based on code.

This is April 2019. Although code-based mapping systems are new to Nepal, they are not new to the global environment. During the study, KC found that it was used in countries like Kenya and Mongolia.

Even there, it was used to solve problems like the confusion in the streets of Kathmandu. So Casey himself doesn't consider it unique.

Anyway, his team started it in Nepal. For that, 858 million codes were prepared by measuring the territory of Nepal at the rate of 9 by 9 meters. Nine numbers with letters and numbers were provided to make each place unique.

For example, the address of Goshwara Post Sundhara, Kathmandu was given as 'KTM-P82756'. The first three letters indicate the district concerned and the remaining six numbers indicate the location. In the above address, KTM means Kathmandu district and the rest is the electronic address of Goshwara post office.

In the same way, 'Address' has given a unique number to every place in Nepal. It even has its own address from the top of Dada to the middle of the Trishuli river. Casey wanted it to solve even future problems.

So, even if there is no house in any place at present, even if the road is not paved, the digital address of that place is already ready. It also has the facility to allow the user to enter the name of their address as they wish.

If someone needs a QR code for their address, it can be prepared by putting the necessary information in it. According to KC, the number of people using 'address' has exceeded 1,500 at present. According to him, digital addresses of more than 16,000 households have been prepared.

The 'Address App', which works even offline without internet, can show the way to the destination by giving instructions at every turn. KC's dream is to make the journey easier by showing the way to every passenger.

"It also aims to make it easier to get delivery services, get emergency services, register addresses in a bank account, and travel from one place to another on foot," he said.

It can also relieve financial institutions from the difficulty of following the current KYC rules. It seems to be useful for quick and simple relief work during natural disasters. In the process of preparing the address in this way, it is not uncommon for those who say that the address team is like Google Map.

KC said that he understood it as a right question and wrong answer. Explaining his point, he goes on to say, "Because, where Google and Apple Map left Nepal, we started all over again." Of course, Google Maps is the backbone of our system. We do not plan to replace Google with the address. '

Do a Google search for the site and then click on the cached link below the search results. But the 'address' has made it possible to find every house from the search. Casey thinks replacing a big company like Google is beyond his capacity and purpose.

In fact, 'Address' is a local product that solves the problems of Nepal and Nepalis by making good use of Google Maps. Even though the product is ready, now the issue of explaining the importance of their address to every people has become a challenge for them.

KC's team has made a plan to get rid of the obligation to say location from a certain place here or there. Now his team is busy marketing the address. At the same time, 'address' is being used as an alternative to sustainable and sustainable projects.

The company currently employs eight people. They are in a hurry to use the code-based address as an alternative in government bodies. But government bodies have not been able to rise above the same old matrix system.

The metric system is a system of naming certain streets separately and addressing the houses and places below / above the road on the same basis. However, not all streets in Nepal have been named.

KC sees such a practice as impossible to imagine a digital Nepal. He says, "Address can be a good tool to realize the vision of Digital Nepal."

Based on the 'address', the government is likely to make a good income by activating the postal service. This was KC's motive behind creating the app.

"I wanted the dead postal service in Nepal to be revived with this address," says KC.

Now the market is sure to be based on online. Online shopping, online business has begun to expand. 'Address' can be an easy way to get cheap goods to the destination.

If it is to be used, it is certain that the current obligation of the customer to contact again and again for delivery while giving his location will be removed.

Who can work out a solution cheaply and quickly. Address is also preparing to collaborate with online service delivery companies.


Where more than 170 bodies have been deposited in the hope of resurrection

Where more than 170 bodies have been deposited in the hope of resurrection

Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. What is the way to avoid death? What if we were able to deceive death together?

What if we were frozen for a while and brought out when the whole problem was over? Putting the human body in a kiosk (a way to protect the human body by keeping it in a very cold temperature) is a topic that many of us have been seeing in science fiction.

Whether Han Solo is trapped in carbonate or Captain America is frozen on ice, such scenes we have been seeing in movies. But what happens in real life? Can we defeat death with the power of kayonics technology?

The probable answer to this question can be found in the North American state of Arizona. The Elcore Life Extension Foundation is a self-proclaimed world leader in kayonics technology. For a few million dollars, ElCore is selling a second life opportunity to the dead.

The Elcore team is now taking care of about a hundred corpses, waiting for that second chance at life. All the dead bodies preserved here have been declared clinically dead once. But Elcore calls it just a technical process.

Linda Chamberlain, founder of the Elcore Life Extension Foundation, says:

Elcore does not call its client a corpse, but a patient. He hopes that all these patients will be healthy and resuscitated in the future as in the hospital.

When a corpse is brought to Elkor, they are subjected to a technical process to increase their chances of returning alive. They are treated with a variety of chemicals and drugs and kept in a large steel tank filled with liquid nitrogen at a temperature of minus 196 degrees Celsius in the hope of regenerating one day in the future.

The staff and offices of the Elcore Foundation are normal. But in the middle of that building is the most amazing thing, which no one has ever seen in his life. There are several stainless steel tanks, in which the bodies and heads of more than 170 dead people have been frozen.

Each of these tanks holds about nine dead bodies. In which four whole body patients (full body corpses) and five neuro patients are placed by making a rack in the middle. Neuro patients are those who only want to preserve their head.

For neuro patients there is space available at a cheaper price than whole body patients. The identity of the patient is revealed on the outside of the tank and can.

These vessel tanks are called duvers. These tanks are custom designed tanks, which are filled with liquid nitrogen. With the help of liquid nitrogen and computer control, the body inside is protected. These tanks protect Elcore's patients for decades.

Since the computer is running from the backup generator, there is no interruption in its work even in the absence of electricity. Looking at this technology, it may seem that only rich billionaires sign up for its services.

But when you look at the walls of Elcore, you can see that the general public has signed up for this service. So far, more than 1,200 people have signed up for Elcore services.

The husband of Linda Chamberlain, the founder of the foundation, is also housed in this cooling dover. But the first person to enter the kayonic was James Bedford. He was placed in a chiro capsule in 1967, five years before Elcore was founded.

The science behind kayonics is completely unproven. This is a science being used. According to experts, there is no suitable means or method to protect the human brain, which can prevent the biological end of the body. "Legal death means that your lungs and heart stopped working without any intervention," says Founder Chamberlain.

But this does not stop the cells and other organs of your body from working. 30, 40 years ago, people called death an on-off switch. But lately, people are beginning to understand that this is a process. It takes time for the body to end completely. '

Weird Science
If your body is preserved as soon as possible after death, there is no reason why it cannot be revived when science improves in the future. But this process is not as easy as placing a corpse in a tank filled with nitrogen liquid.

For this, it is necessary to protect the brain and body of the dead person as much as possible. When a patient is brought to Alcor, they are legally pronounced dead.

They are then placed in the Alcor facility for stabilization. Alcor's facilities are designed to accommodate hospitals and mortuaries. The initial process depends on how long the patient has died, whether or not he was placed on ice before.

The body should be placed on ice as soon as possible after death. Hypothermia (loss of body temperature) is important to slow down the process of death).

But its purpose is to cool the body as soon as possible and for that a kind of post death life support is taken. The first step in this process is the ice bath. Chamberlain says, ‘The patient is placed in the ice bath and the piece is covered with ice.

The lungs are intubated to keep them moving, and a mechanical thumper is placed in the patient's chest to give oxygen to the blood. So that the blood can be re-circulated. It is also necessary to deliver preservatives to the body. Medicines are also kept in the body to slow down the metabolic process.

 But the real action takes place in the operating room. The dead body is dropped to the temperature of the storage tank. The body is then placed for kyoprotection. There, surgeons pump blood out of the patient's veins and place a kyoprotectant instead.

The amount of water in the human body is 50 to 60 percent. When that water begins to freeze, it forms ice crystals in the body, which can damage the body's organs and nerves. But the kyoprotectant gradually lowers the body temperature and turns the body's elements into a glass-like state. In this way the carcass can be kept in a tank of liquid nitrogen for decades.

It takes 6 to 12 hours to cool the body and is prepared for long-term preservation by putting a kyoprotectant in it. But if it is done only for the head, it will not take much time.

 Why only the head is preserved?

Elcore wants to keep the brain intact. So that the memory and personality of the patient remain the same. Once technology is developed, development can be achieved by uploading a lot of things to that brain.

The new body can be developed just like that. After removing 99 percent of the water from the body and head, the patient's body slowly begins to chisel at minus 196 degrees Celsius. From there they are sent to a long-term care room.

Filled with gas fog and dead bodies, this room is no different from a cemetery. It is hard for anyone to believe that these people will come back to life.

Kenneth Heworth is a former member of the Alcor and a neurologist. He has a doctorate in neuroscience. He has set up the Brain Preservation Prize to challenge the kayonics community.

He established the award to protect the brain from damage. But so far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. He is skeptical that the results will be as expected. Memory encoding structures can be damaged, he says.

But if kayonics is the only way to rise from the dead in the future, there is still hope for it. According to Hayworth, he has seen validation in a method of protecting the brain to keep neural connections active.

This technique is called aldehyde stabilized kyopreservation. This means that in the future you can scan, upload or simulate that brain. But you have to do it while the person is alive. This method kills the person. This is not the solution. The search doesn't end there.

Ken Miller, a professor of theoretical neuroscience at Columbia University's Department of Neuroscience in New York, says kayonics is just a dream. "People still have a long way to go to understand how the human brain works," he said.

He argues that preserving and reviving it is a long way off. He estimates that it will still take a thousand years to understand how neurons work. It has many layers. This is beyond imagination.

But in response to what Professor Miller said about the complexity of the human brain, ElCor's CEO has a different view. He says, ‘I believe that if you are preserved in a good condition, what you have made today can be brought back in the future.

As far as keeping the structure of the brain the same, I think we can come to a point and restore it. It does not violate the laws of physics. It's about time and technology. "

Kyonics is not that cheap. It costs 220,000 for a flower body and 80,000 for a neuro preservation. It is not possible for everyone to pay so much for hope and possibility.

However, it would be better to stay in the fridge hoping for the possibility of kayonics than to make the body food for insects in the grave!

Instagram's camera is suspected to have been hijacked due to a bug

Instagram's camera is suspected to have been hijacked due to a bug

 Users have complained of unnatural activity on the Instagram app in the beta mode of iOS 14. Even while scrolling through the feed without taking photos and videos, there are complaints that the green indicator of the camera is visible on Instagram.

A spokesman for Instagram said the situation was caused by a bug and that the company had fixed it. Access to the camera can be obtained from Instagram's Create Mode feature. When you get access like this, the camera indicator turns on. That is why the problem may have arisen.

Such an error can be seen by running the app's camera by swiping from the feed. ‘We only have access to your camera if you allow it. For example, when you swipe from feed to camera, we get access.

Due to the bug in the iOS 14 beta, the user was afraid that his camera would be hijacked even if he did not use it. We've repaired it now, "he said." We haven't used your camera and we haven't recorded any content. "

In support of the agency.

The 'Read Letter' feature is coming to the desktop version of the Chrome browser

Popular web browser Chrome is targeting desktop users to save any content and is preparing to bring a read letter feature at their convenience. Chrome is about to add a new menu on the desktop so that you can save any tab and read it later.

According to a report released by the bug tracker 'Chromium Gerrit', this feature can be used on Chrome operating system as well as Mac OS, Windows and Linux operating systems. The feature, which was unveiled to iOS users three years ago, is still in its infancy, Gerrit said.

It is said that there will be no change in the user interface of this feature which is being tested. If you are wondering when to use this type of feature on Android, there is good news for you. You can even use this download feature to recreate functionality.

Click the three dot menu at the top right of Chrome and click the download icon in it. To view saved pages, go to your Downloads section and view the saved websites.

Theoretically you can also go to the download route to save the page on the desktop but it downloads the website as an HTML file. So this is not a suitable solution for Android.

Changing iPhone? Before that, take care of these things.

Changing iPhone? Before that, take care of these things

Until a decade ago, losing data inside a phone was not a big deal. But now even the most sensitive information in daily life is in your phone.

So now that you lose any data inside your phone, personal information is also public. For the same reason, many people are afraid to change their phone. Is the data on the old phone lost when the phone is switched on? Will chats be deleted? Many are afraid of that.

If you want to upgrade to a new iPhone, you can do so without losing any data. There's a way you can safely move your photos, contact numbers, videos, message history, music, calendars, email accounts, and other apps from the old device to the new one.

1. Back up your old iPhone or iPad

TikTok makers will now get money, the company is opening a fund of Rs 24 billion

TikTok makers will now get money, the company is opening a fund of Rs 24 billion

There is good news for ticket users. The popular Chinese video platform for short videos is now paying its users.

Tiktak, which was established in a short time, has announced such a feature especially targeting popular users and new users. In a statement on Thursday, the company said it was building a fund of about 24 billion rupees ( 200 million) for its new announcement.

This feature will help users who are looking for opportunities to progress through creative content. According to Tiktak, cash distribution from the fund will start by the end of this year.

In the past, ticket users could only earn money through live and brand partnerships. Tiktak's new announcement is expected to continue to attract users as it forms the basis for revenue.

According to Tiktak's criteria, such amount will be used only for original content above 18 years of age and self-created. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

Although it is not clear how the ticket users will get the amount, a spokesperson of the company said that the amount of the fund will continue to increase and make it competitive in the market. The most popular ticket in the world has been getting into trouble lately.

India has imposed a ban on tickets due to a border dispute between China and India, and there is a possibility of a ban due to the growing distance with the United States.

To reduce this potential, TICT has recently unveiled a new plan to create 10,000 jobs in the United States. Tickets are equally popular among Nepali users.

Hamro Keyboard is bringing a feature that is automatically written in Nepali letters

The popular Nepali app is going to bring a new feature to automatically write what is said in our calendar. Intending to make Nepali language writing more comfortable and effective, our calendar is going to bring such a feature in our keyboard app.

Managing Director of the company Santosh Devkota said that an internal test of the feature is underway. "We are working to make it public in the next decade," he said. Google's voice typing API is being customized on our keyboard. '

According to Devkota, it can work 60 to 80 percent purely. This feature is being added to our keyboards especially with the aim of not requiring additional keyboards for voice typing.

Devkota understands that Google's voice typing has not been as effective as other languages ​​due to the lack of community support for the Nepali language. "We've missed out on community support," he said. "It's not much different from Google's feature, but we're customizing it in our own way and bringing it to our keyboard."

Although Google's voice typing will support dozens of languages ​​including English, Nepali, Hindi, our keyboard will only focus on the Nepali language. "If there is no problem, we are thinking of keeping English as the default," said managing director Devkota.

Instagram's 'Tiktok' coming

Instagram's 'Tiktok' coming

The rising popularity of video-sharing app Tiktok has attracted the world's leading technology companies. Following the controversial Chinese app Tiktak, the popular photo-sharing app Instagram is bringing its own 'Tiktak'.

Announcing this on Friday, Tiktok revealed that it is preparing to launch its video-sharing feature. The name of the video-sharing service of Instagram will be 'Reels'.

Reels will be launched in the United States and 50 other countries in August. Remember, Instagram has started testing reels in India since last week. Given India's ban on tickets, Instagram sees the launch of Reels in India as a test.

A Facebook spokesperson said: "We are always looking for what people want and are constantly innovating to improve the user experience. Platforms like Snap, Ticket, and others were created keeping in mind the desires of the people. But we can do that in a new way through Instagram than on those platforms and address the demands of our community. '

In Instagram's video sharing feature reels, users will be able to record, edit 15-second videos, add their favorite music and audio, and upload them to Stories and Instagram's Explore feature.

Instagram and its parent company Facebook are ahead in learning the various features of other apps. In 2016, Facebook and Instagram launched the Stories feature, which allows users to share their lost content within 24 hours.

This feature became very popular on Instagram and within 8 months, the number of users of the Instagram Stories feature surpassed the number of Snapchat users. That number doubled in 2018.

Instagram is not alone in learning about Tiktak's growing popularity. Even YouTube is making its own tick, named Shirts. YouTube shirts will be made public by the end of 2020.


The screen sharing feature on Facebook Messenger, now you can see your friend's mobile screen

Millions of people use the social media site Facebook's messenger service every day. In April, the number of monthly active users of Facebook was 2.6 billion. Facebook is constantly bringing new updates for the users.

According to Facebook, the Messenger app will have screen sharing options for Android and iOS users. Until now, this feature was only available in the web version of Messenger, which has now been rolled out to the app version.

According to Facebook, this feature will also be available in Facebook's video conferencing service 'Messenger Rooms'. It is expected that Messenger Rooms will be able to compete with Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

Due to the Coronavirus epidemic, the increasing use of virtual meetings, including video conferencing, has become a necessity for screen sharing features on such digital platforms. From sharing an official presentation, screen sharing is also required for teachers during a video or virtual reading. With the help of the new feature, users will now be able to share their phone screen with anyone in Messenger. This feature will be available to all users with new updates.

This new feature in the Messenger app can be used for one-to-one video calls as well as group video calling of up to eight people. For this, the user has to login to the Messenger app and open the app and make a video call to someone. As soon as the call is added, an option called Share Your Screen will appear in the tab at the bottom of the screen. After tapping on it, the Messenger user connected to the video call will see the screen of your smartphone.
