Commoners Who Became Princesses:

Kate Middleton
Catherine Middleton's 2011 marriage to Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, revived the country's interest (and the world's, for that matter) in the royal family. The wedding ignited a media frenzy that has continued with the birth of the couple's first baby, George, in July.

Mary Elizabeth Donaldson

A native of Australia, Mary Elizabeth Donaldson met Frederick, the crown prince of Denmark, in a Sydney pub when he was attending the 2000 Olympic Games. The two had a long-distance courtship and married in 2004.


I would like to share this amazing life story of Cicada , an insect, found in many parts of the world about which I came to know from my elder brother Dr. Shaugat stays at Tennessee.

About 2,500 species of cicada have been described. In USA different regions have this insect. Their life span is mind blowing and amazing. These insects are born from the eggs, right after they are born they dig holes and make their way to the ground and burrow in for a dark 17-year juvenile period until the hormones kick in that will turn them into adults. This year somewhere between 500 billion to 1 trillion Cicadas is coming out from in different regions of USA. When the earth temperature is exactly 64 degree Fahrenheit (EXACTLY, not even one degree less or more), they crawl out from ground, shed their crunchy brown exoskeletons. Then the winged insects make their short-lived act above the surface known. Males make species-specific mating calls by vibrating a white, drum like plate, or tymbal, on either side of their abdomens. These chirping and clicking noises by females can be heard up to a mile away. Standing near an especially loud chorus of cicadas can be like standing near a motorcycle, with a racket reaching up to 100 decibels. Another example can be, when all the males are singing they are so loud that you will not hear an airplane even it flies just above your head. They spend their few weeks of adulthood mating and laying eggs in tree branches. Then the red-eyed insects will all die, leaving their 2-inch-long bodies to litter the ground. The newly hatched Brood II babies, meanwhile, will make their way back to the ground and another cycle of new generation starts. Those bugs will go on hiatus until 2030 and then continue the cycle. The cicadas coming out of the ground now were born in 1996.

Last year north-east Tennessee (where we live) had Cicada chorus. They also came out after 17 years and then a new generation is under the ground for next 17 years.
Few days back  my elder brother was driving by the mountain on his way to hospital, he heard that big loud cicada chorus. He was panicked thinking that his car was making noise. He stopped and then got out of the car. Then he I found that the tremendous noise was coming out from all the trees of mountains. It was an amazing experience! The chirping noise is all around, coming from all directions! he did not know what that was. Then one of his colleagues told him that that was Cicada songs!

Here are two pictures of one kind of Cicada.

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / How to Avoid Car Sickness
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:50:56 PM »

Many of us are suffering from Car sickness (mostly the females). I am one of them and feels its a curse. If you get car sick, you most likely dread every single extended road trip. Car sickness is just one kind of motion sickness (or kinetosis) that some experience when they're riding in an automobile. Dizziness, fatigue and nausea might make the trip miserable.

The 11th Founding Anniversary is just after few days. Here are some ways to enjoy the ride, sickness-free. Hope these will help to enjoy any long journey or a pleasure trip.

Understand why car sickness happens. All motion sickness results from your body sensing a discrepancy between what you see (in this case, the inside of a car, which tells your brain that you're sitting still) and what you feel (your body's vestibular system, which senses balance from your inner ear, tells your brain that you're moving). The conflict between what you see and what you feel triggers the production of a neurotransmitter, likely mistaken by your body as a signal of hallucinogenic poisoning, so your body tries to rid itself of whatever is causing the disorienting condition.

Look out the front window. Watching the passing scenery can confirm your balance system's detection of motion and help resolve the mismatch that causes car sickness. Focus on a non-moving object in the distance, such as the horizon. Don't do anything that involves focusing on a fixed spot, such as reading or playing a card game. Don't turn around or look from side to side much.

Sit in the front. Drivers rarely get car sickness as they are always focused on the road. Sitting in the passenger's seat up front is the next best thing. Not only will you have more window space to look through, but in some cars, the ride tends to be less bumpy in the front. If driving is not possible or desirable, visualize driving or pretend you are driving. This can often prevent or alleviate nausea.

Close your eyes. Sleep if you can. If your eyes are closed, you don't see anything, and that removes the cause of motion sickness. In addition, sleeping can take your mind off of your car sickness.

Open the window. Many people find that smelling fresh, cool air helps make them feel better, although the reason behind this isn't clear. If it is not possible to open the window, lean towards the bottom of the window and breathe. There should be leaks of air. Some people find that certain smells can make them feel worse (such as car air fresheners, perfumes, smoke, and food). Remove the source of the smell if possible, or keep fresh air coming in. If neither is possible, spray a soothing smell like lavender or mint to cover up the other smells.

Take breaks. Go outside to stretch your legs. Sit on a bench or under a tree and take some deep breaths in through your mouth, breathing deeply from your stomach to help relax. This is especially important during journeys that involve a long distance of curvy roads. Not only does stopping frequently help alleviate car sickness, but it is also good for the driver to take a break.

Take steps to prevent nausea. Since nausea is the most debilitating symptom of car sickness, it's always good to take precautionary measures. Ginger root is a classic remedy because of its widely recognized antiemetic (nausea-preventing) effects. Keep in mind, however, that many medications which are normally effective against nausea might not work against nausea caused by motion sickness.

•  Eat a few ginger biscuits (cookies) before you go, during the journey, and after you arrive.
•  Other good things to try eating are ginger candies (chewable), ginger coated in sugar (if you don't mind the heat of ginger) or ginger mints.
•  If you are traveling a long distance, you could also consider taking ginger tea in a thermos. Peppermint tea is another good alternative. Cold drinks could include ginger ale
•  Fresh mint (Pudina pata) can also cure or alleviate nausea. Buy it in the produce section of the supermarket. It doesn't have the drowsiness side-effect of over-the-counter nausea medicine. Start by eating 2 leaves and feel free to eat more if you need it.
•  Keep a peppermint candy (or just about any long lasting hard candy) in your mouth. This method will work very well even after feelings of nausea have begun. Do not chew the candy because feelings of nausea may return fairly quickly after the candy is gone. For those whose nausea is worsened by the smell or taste of peppermint, lemon drops may prove helpful.
•  Listening to music can help keep your mind off the sickness.

Practice acupressure.

If you feel that you might be getting car sick, apply gentle pressure on your forearm (between the two tendons) about 3cm (about an inch) or so back from the wrist joint. You can also purchase a wrist band that will do this for you.[2] This should temporarily delay or alleviate nausea until you can take a break from the trip. You can also purchase accu-pressure bands at a local pharmacy.

Use medication that prevents car sickness. There are over-the-counter and prescription drugs that are effective against car sickness. Most of them contain dimenhydrinate,[3] meclizine[4] or scopolamine.[5] Some popular brands are Dramamine and Bonine/Antivert. Look into the side effects before using any of these drugs and ask your doctor just in case. Some of these are available as patches and can be particularly helpful. Antihistamines can prevent nausea caused by motion sickness by dulling the inner ear's motion sensors. This medication is able to block the part of the brain that controls nausea and needs to be taken before motion sickness occurs. Antihistamines can make you feel sleepy and affect your ability to operate machinery.

There are many "folk remedies" which seem to work for some people, but can't be explained and haven't been proven. If all else fails, it might be worth giving them a shot:
•   Try smelling newspaper. Since reading the paper will probably make you sick, just have it close to you in the car. If you don't always have a newspaper handy, many art supply stores sell pads of newsprint (which smells the same) that you may put in the car.
•   Eat achar/pickle (or anything sour) before and during a trip could prevent feeling sick.
•   Wrap a rubber band around your wrist. You can also purchase motion sickness wrist bands; some contain medications, some do not. In theory, the tightness of the rubber band will provide a distraction from the nausea.
•   Chew gum. (This helps a lot of people get rid of nausea)
•   Eat saltines or other slightly salty snacks.
•   Placing a plaster over the belly button.
•   Keeping your head in continuous contact with the seat or window.
•   Listen to music (with earphones), use MP3 player or a kind of. This is helpful to manipulate inner ear to brain information which usually causes nausea. Your favorite music will manipulate the information become something amuse, so that car sickness can be avoided. And you know what, it works.
•   Don't shake your head.

•   Don't eat a heavy meal right before your trip. Some find that eating chocolate in the morning before taking the trip can make car sickness worse as well.
•   Try to open the window to let fresh air in.
•   Breathe in and out heavily to get more oxygen circulating.
•   Help prevent car sickness in children by giving them a raised seat where they have a clear view of the outdoors, and play games that encourage them to look outwards. Don't let them watch movies in the car, as it can trigger car sickness.
•   A heavy fog will severely limit your view range and can hasten the sick feeling. If that's the case, close your eyes and try to sleep.
•   If you find map-reading makes you sick, ask the driver to pull over to check a map.
•   You can't vomit if there's nothing in your stomach, right? So don't eat a lot the day of the car ride. Stick to light simple stuff, like a or 2 pieces of toast in the morning. After meals it also helps to eat a small pack of saltine crackers. It helps settle your stomach, which means that there's less a chance of you puking.
•   Don't talk about motion sickness, or even look at someone else who's experiencing it.

•   Don't avoid eating completely. This can lead to you vomiting stomach acid, which isn't the nicest thing and definitely isn't the healthiest thing.
•   Always carry bicarbonate of soda in the car somewhere. If you do vomit on the car upholstery, rub the bicarbonate into it straight away to remove the smell and to assist cleaning when you can get to it later.
•   If you have stomach problems such as GERDs or acid reflux, sucking a peppermint may give you heartburn, as it is a acid trigger. Check with your doctor first.
•   Even if you take all of these precautions, you might still get car sick. Have single use emesis bags, which have a one way valve. Empty clean ice cream buckets with the lid work well, too. Make sure it doesn't have a strange smell to it before throwing it in the car. The lid nicely keeps everything in.
•   Consult your doctor before using any medications for motion/car sickness.

Things You'll Need

•   Fresh Mint (Pudina pata)
•   Ginger candies, biscuits (cookies), ginger pieces, ginger mints
•   Lemon or Lemon leaves
•   Ginger or peppermint tea in a container
•   Polythene bags
•   Calming air freshener (lavender, mint) - make sure it is as pure as possible.
•   Newspaper or newsprint
•   Pillow and blanket
•   Water
•   Music
•   Books that others read to you
•   Games that you can play while keeping your eyes on the road

Common Forum/Request/Suggestions / How to Tie a Tie
« on: October 05, 2012, 02:13:04 AM »
Here are some tips for both newbies just starting out with their first tie knot, as well as those more advanced students that would like to add some variety to their tie knots.The choice is yours:

Four in Hand Knot

The Four in Hand Knot makes for a narrow, more discreet and slightly asymmetrical tie knot. It is best suited for a standard button-down dress shirt and works best with wide neckties made from heavy fabrics.
While this tie knot can be worn by anyone, it looks especially well on men with shorter necks as the knot's rather narrow and elongated form stretches the perceived height of the neck a tiny bit.
To tie the Four in Hand Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

    1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.

    2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

   3) Turn the wide end back underneath the narrow end.

   4) Continue by bringing the wide end back over in front of the narrow end again.

   5) Then, pull the wide end up and through the loop around your neck.

   6) Hold the front of the knot loosely with your index finger and bring the wide end down through the front loop.

    7) At last, remove your finger and tighten the knot carefully to the collar by holding the narrow end and sliding the knot up.

That's it! That is all there is to the Four in Hand Knot. You will quickly learn to tie this necktie knot in less and less time every time you practice it. Just keep going.

Half Windsor Knot

The Half Windsor Knot, a modest version of the Windsor Knot, is a symmetrical and triangular tie knot that you can use with any dress shirt. It works best with somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics.

To tie the Half Windsor Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.

2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

3) Bring the wide end around and behind the narrow end


4) Then bring the wide end up.

5) Pull the wide end through the loop and to the right.


6) Bring the wide end around front, over the narrow end from right to left.


7) Again, bring the wide end up and through the loop.


8) Then, bring the wide end down through the knot in front.


9) And -- using both hands -- tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

And there you are! Simply keep working on this necktie knot and be sure to practice a few times until you are really good at it.

Pratt Knot

The Pratt Knot -- also known as the Shelby Knot -- is tidy and fairly wide, yet not as wide as the Windsor Knot. It is well suited for any dress shirt and somewhat wider neckties made from light to medium fabrics.

To tie the Pratt Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the necktie inside out, with the wide end ("W") on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.
2) Then cross the wide end under the narrow end.

3) Take the wide end over and under the narrow end.

4) Pull the loop down and tighten.

5) Then, take the wide end over to the right.

6) Pull the wide end up, behind the loop.

7) And finally, bring the wide end through the knot and tighten gently.

Windsor Knot

The Windsor Knot is a thick, wide and triangular tie knot that projects confidence. It would therefore be your knot of choice for presentations, job interviews, courtroom appearances etc. It is best suited for spread collar shirts and it's actually quite easy to do.

While just about everyone can use this tie knot to tie his tie, it looks especially well on men with longer necks as its wide form shortens the perceived height of the neck a little bit.

To tie the Windsor Knot, select a necktie of your choice and stand in front of a mirror. Then simply follow the steps below:

1) Start with the wide end ("W") of your necktie on the right, extending about 12 inches below the narrow end ("N") on the left.


2) Then cross the wide end over the narrow end.

3) Bring the wide end up through the loop between the collar and your tie.


4) Then bring the wide end back down.

5) Pull the wide end underneath the narrow end and to the right, back through the loop and to the right again so that the wide end is inside out

6) Bring the wide end across the front from right to left

7) Then pull the wide end up through the loop again.

8) Bring the wide end down through the knot in front.

9) And -- using both hands -- tighten the knot carefully and draw it up to the collar.

Finally you did it! You see, it is not rocket science after all. Simply keep practicing the Windsor Knot a few more times until you can tie this necktie knot within less than two minutes.

How much color can you put on when you want to represent yourself as powerful and professional?

Our effort will be successful when our DIU graduates will make a good career. Career and Job Interview are  correlated. Interviews are always nerve-wracking experiences. Most people rehearse what they will say and try to imagine what questions will be asked. Interviewees will make sure to be on time. They will agonize over the best outfit to wear to make the best impression.
However, most people don't think much about the color of the clothing they will wear to an interview. Of course, this isn't the most important thing to consider when going for a job interview. But studies have shown that colors do trigger subconscious responses in humans. Why not use that to your advantage at a job interview? Any little trick to make a good impression at an interview can't hurt.
The color black is an authoritative color. However, black should not be worn to interviews as a main color. The reason is that too much black can cause a person to appear distant and arrogant. Wear black to interviews as an accessory, such as a tie.
Red is not recommended as a choice to wear to an interview. The reason is because red evokes emotions more than any other color. It is not a good choice when you want to project a calm, cool exterior. Avoid wearing yellow or orange to an interview for the same reason.
Men should avoid both purple and pink. Both colors symbolize femininity. A male wearing pink or purple to an interview would seem to be undecided and unsure of himself.
Now that we've covered which colors not to wear to an interview, let's find out which colors are the best to wear for a job interview.
Blue is one the best choices to wear to an interview. Blue causes its wearer to seem authoritative. At the same time, wearing the color blue makes a person seem trustworthy. This is a perfect representation to make in front of a potential boss at an interview. Another reason to wear blue to an interview is because blue is most people's favorite color. This increases your chances of the interviewer approving your appearance. Studies have even shown that salespeople and people at interviews who wear blue have higher success rates.
Gray is another excellent choice for an interview. Gray denotes authority without being overwhelming.
Brown is a good choice for job interviews as well. Wearing the color brown makes a person seem calm, trustworthy, and level headed.

Some more tips
Of course, these aren't hard and fast interview rules. It totally depends upon the individual situation. If you are seeking a job that requires creativity, wearing neutrals may be an unwise choice. Also, if your potential future job is in a casual environment, the wardrobe interview rules need not be so strict. An excellent middle of the road color choice for an interview is green.

•   You can wear a red dress or shirt to a job interview. But it’s helpful to know something about the organization’s culture at first.
•   When you’re choosing your colors and your attire, be thoughtful on what you’re doing -and who you’re meeting and what message you want to convey. Ask yourself: “What do I really want to project?… This is a person who’s promotable. This is a person who knows how to establish a presence. ”
•   Colors convey meaning and emotion. Red means luck in Chinese, and red and black are power colors. They may work for an executive or contract negotiators’ job. But if you’re interviewing for an administrative job at a nonprofit, you may be better off in a less bold color – blue or brown or something more neutral. White, Off white, Cream – as in a shirt or Kamiz- suggests clean, purity, honesty.  People do have these subconscious reactions to the colors you’re wearing.
•   If you’re trying for professional with some style, pair a dark suit with a bright colored shirt. Or wear the red shirt but make the rest of the outfit a muted gray with plain professional black shoes. Wear  a tie with some zest to bring in a little color. For female, if you love purple, by all means, carry your purple purse. But the purple purse and shoes and dress will be too much. Brighter colors are fine; just ask yourself: How much is right? To be safe, you may want to wear mostly neutrals and wear just a splash of color
•   If you’re heading to a bank, you need to wear something more conservative. If you’re talking to the creative types,  you may be fine in your bright of colors attire. But if you’re meeting the legal department, tone it down: Wear brown, navy, black to show yourself as someone who fits into the organization.

Common Forum / How to Introduce Yourself in a Job Interview board
« on: September 28, 2012, 12:56:08 AM »
1.   Prepare for the Introduction

o   1
Take an extra 30 minutes to get ready the morning of your interview to look your best. Choose clothing that fits the employer's work environment (formal, semiformal or casual) and properly groom yourself. Style hair plainly, and keep it away from your face. Nails should be clean and short. Splurge on a professional shoe shine.

o   2
Leave your house in plenty of time to arrive at least 15 minutes early for your interview. This way, you'll arrive with enough time to calm any jitters and recheck your appearance in a bathroom mirror.

o   3
Make sure you have fresh breath. Carry mints with you or chew gum until you arrive at the interview location. An age-old trick to combat bad breath is to chew parsley. Before brushing your teeth in the morning, eat a bunch of parsley. Chew it slowly and wash it down with water. Parsley is a natural odor-killer and it doesn't leave you with that tell-tale minty breath, which can also be offensive if it's too strong.

2.   Make Your Introduction

o   4
Stand and step forward to properly introduce yourself to a potential employer.

o   5
Look your interviewer in the eye and introduce yourself.
o   6
Respond in kind to your interviewer's comments. If he or she says, "It's nice to meet you," then you should say, "Thank you. It's nice to meet you as well." Be polite, and your nerves will loosen up during the interview.
3.   Observe Your Interviewer

o   7  Do not sit until your interviewer has done so or asks you to take a seat.
o   8  Note your interviewer's body language. If he or she seems distracted or is fidgeting, lighten the atmosphere by telling an interesting but relevant story about your qualifications.
o   9  Never interrupt an interviewer. Wait until he or she completes a sentence or question before responding or asking a question of your own. If you don't understand a question or statement, ask the interviewer to explain or repeat it.

« on: March 07, 2012, 10:38:29 AM »
Dear Students,
Here are some first job interview tips to make the interview a success. Hope these will help you.

Before Your First Job Interview

Research the Company. Take some time to research the company so you are familiar with how they operate. There is a lot of company information available online.

Learn About the Job. Learn about the job you are looking to get. Ask yourself, "Why am I the best person for the job?" Do you know someone else who works at the company? Ask them about the job, the interview process, and the company.

Watch a Job Interview Video. Watch interview videos that offer tips to really be prepared.
Practice Interviewing. Review typical teen interview questions and answers and practice your responses before you go. Ask a family member or friend to ask you some questions, so you can practice your answers.

Dress Appropriately. Choose simple and appropriate attire for the position you are interviewing for. If you're not sure what to wear ask an adult family member, teacher, or guidance counselor. Take a look at what you shouldn't wear to a first job interview, as well.

Write a Resume. A resume will make a good impression on the interviewer. Bring a copy of your resume, if you have one, and a pen and paper ready to take along for notes. Here's how to write your first resume.

Get Directions and a Ride. If you need a ride to the interview, line it up ahead of time. Make sure you know where you are going for the interview so that you do not get lost and are on time.
During Your First Job Interview

•   Try to stay cool, calm, and collected. Staying as calm as possible, will help you focus on the interviewer.
•   If you feel flustered, pause and take a few deep breathes to gather your thoughts.
•   Be confident in your skills and abilities when you are talking to the interviewer. Remember this is a first job and you aren't expected to have a lot of experience.
•   Try to incorporate what you know about the company looking to hire you.
•   Be honest. If you have sports or other activities that may conflict with your work schedule, tell the interviewer.
•   Make eye contact and avoid distractions.
•   Listen and take notes. Have a question ready to ask at the end of the interview.
•   At the end of the interview thank the interviewer for taking the time to interview you.
After Your First Job Interview

Send a thank you note immediately after the interview. Remind them about how interested you are in the position they are looking to fill. Send a note to each person that interviewed you.
