Less than half the Earth’s landmass is accessible to wheeled  and tracked vehicles, yet people and animals can go almost anywhere on Earth. This situation motivates the development of robot vehicles that use legs for their locomotion, thereby embracing nature’s mobility solution. The goal is to achieve animal-like mobility on rough and rugged terrain, terrain too difficult for any existing vehicle.

Why do Storms Occur ??

Thunderstorms form when rising warm air, through a process called convection, rises into cooler air alot. Conditions have to be favorable for thunderstorm development, which can be a varietey of factors, including cold fronts, low pressure systems, tropical storms/hurricanes (low pressure systems over water), and storms that form from daytime heating when conditions allow.

Many times we forget to unplug the Battery Charger from the AC Power socket after detaching the Phone from the Charger, Power socket will be in ON position and we think that the current is being wasted as the Power socket is ON and as we have not connected any Mobile to it, current is being wasted.

But this is not exactly what it is happening, Lee me first give you a brief introduction to what LOAD means in an Electronic Circuits.

DONGLE – How Does It Work ?

Many of us might have old desktops at home which we will be using for watching movies, playing songs and working on some low end applications. Because our Old Desktops configuration probably would be a Intel p4 or a Intel Pentium D or an older version of AMD, also that the RAM would be around typically 512MB.

But still we use them for our daily use because the resale value of them in the market is very less as Electronic Devices are growing very fast and we are able to get high end devices at a lower cost so who wants to buy an Old Desktop PC. Now-a-days many of us are using Wi-Fi at home and because our Old PC’s typically don’t have a wireless capability built into it, we face difficulty to connect our Mobile Devices, laptops to our Desktop PC. Come’On guys Wireless Connectivity is the new trend, so i would like to introduce you to a device which would solve this problem .

Printing Human Organs

Not more than 10 or 15 years ago, we would have not thought of having this kind of photo-printing technology that can print the Human Organs.

Now we one day be able to print anything and everything we need. 3D printers have been used in architectural schools for quite some time already (and self-replicating home models are becoming more and more common), a 3D food printer is under development, and now several sources are working on 3D bio-printers: machines that will “print” organs so patients will no longer have to wait for transplant donations. Recently, the first commercial organ printer was built by biomedical company Invetech and delivered to Organovo, a company that has pioneered the Bioprinting technology.

De-Militarized zone (DMZ)

Every corporate office has a official public website which can be accessed by every individual using public internet. Data related to this site has to be stored in servers and the location of these servers is a challenge! The challenge is servers have to be accessible by the public users but they should not disturb the internal network of the organization in other words an attacker from internet should not be able to reach the internal network through these servers. Then came the concept of DMZ. It is a zone that lies between an organization’s internal network and an external network, usually the Internet

Concept of DMZ :

      In military terms, a De-Militarized zone (DMZ) is an area, usually the frontier or boundary between two or more military powers (or alliances), where military activity is not permitted, usually by peace treaty or other bilateral or multilateral agreement

In a computer network apart from the Internet and Intranet there exists De-militarized zone which has the security protection level lying in between the Intranet and the Internet. The Intranet is a High security zone where the internal host systems, servers etc., of an organization are present and which are to be secured from the attacks or threats. Internet is an outside public network which is considered as a low security zone.

Traffic flow in DMZ installed networks:

  • Internal hosts can access DMZ and internet.
  • External hosts can access only DMZ not the intranet.
  • DMZ hosts can access internet only.
