Special Relativity In Plain English — Everything You Need To Know

The term relativism belongs to philosophical views and is of many forms like Alethic relativism is the doctrine that tells us the truth is always relative to some particular frame of reference. Overall, relativity is all about the change in perception of different people at a different time in different frames of reference. A frame of reference is not a complicated concept. It is just something you decide is a fixed point or group of connected points. It is completely up to you. For example, when you look up at celestial objects in the sky, you fix the Earth as your frame of reference, and the Sun, Moon, etc seem to move across the sky. Everything is relative to something. People often drive their car real fast on highways, but it is not only the car that is moving. Earth itself is spinning on its axis at more than a thousand miles per hour. The universe itself is expanding. The universe is not only expanding but also the expansion rate is accelerating. Nothing is in absolute rest or absolute motion. Relativity is not just a science or Einstein or Newton or some kind of frustrating equation. Forget science. It’s midnight. You take your clock or darkness as the frame of reference.

You are reading this in the year 2020, probably the cursed year of the 21st century. Somebody will be reading this in 2021 or 2031 or whatsoever else. The time was even there when humans had no idea about numbers. You are eighteen years old that just meant the Earth has revolved around the Sun 18 times or so since the time you were born. The question that arises here is how to define time. Are the laws of physics constant in time? Does time exist? Does classical physics apply to the object moving at more than a thousand miles per second? Would length vary with speed? Is space homogeneous or isotropic? Your clocks run on batteries which make time slow for you as your batteries approach expiry date but not for me and somebody else with a brand new clock. You can reckon time independent of your psychological state.

The Only Person You Need To Change Your Life | Kuldeep Keshari |

How often have we tried to look for the perfect person in our lives? Every second of our lives, we ponder over thinking about infinitesimal persons. We think about unnecessarily necessary things – things that have no reason to worry about, things that have no reason to wonder and care about.

While doing so, we often forget to cherish and enliven the inner souls built and engraved so artistically- even Gods and Deities couldn’t embed. We have a tendency to renounce the good things. Rather, we prefer complaining and contrasting the bad among us.

You’re bout to learn something really remarkable and wonderful. It works like a magic wand – Harry Potter’s magic wand. It might sound amusing to all of you. But, trust me. The method is based solely on SCIENCE. It’s called MAGIC.

Here’s the trick. The trick is very simple – in words. But, very cumbersome to bring into practice. Every day you wake up, GO, and stand right in front of the MIRROR. The mirror doesn’t have to be a perfect one a 50 Rupees mirror will do the trick, too. LOOK STRAIGHT into the mirror.

AMAZED, eh ?
Nah ?

You see. The person you saw in the mirror is the only sole individual, who will change your life. No one else will. If you break your toe, you’ll have to bear the loss. If you win a lottery ticket, you’ll be the one to cherish and make the best out of that lottery ticket.

Our thoughts shape our decisions. And our decisions shape our actions. And ultimately, those actions lead to either – PROSPERITY OR DISPARITY.

It’s all UP TO YOU – THE MIRROR of YOU !

Fight Sexism

Sticky post

A night enlightened by moonbeams witnessed the conversation of students from two girls houses. The trees, flowers and watery tiny ponds seem to smile on the moonlit night. The aestheticity is unspeakable.
I have a complaint letter in my hand that was meant to be exposed to the administration ages back from 4000E girls.
It was the time when people were talking about how they were treated, how the past 5 years would have been the best 5 years of our life if we never lacked communication. Well not tryna be too pessimistic;somehow we all have the same story.
Everyone’s eyes told something, something traumatizing. Everything was so dark and unilluminated behind the happy faces of girls studying novels instead of going out and play.
The question arises, what did we all face?
We were always told about the quality of education and this residential school is a good place. But why didn’t anyone tell us about the monsters living among us? Why didn’t you tell us that our male batchmates will have to follow different rules and have facilities unlike us? Why didn’t you tell us that we will be stared if we wear shorts (which is a part of our P.E uniform or we will always have to hide our sports bra straps with white shawl? Why?

Too much of silence. Too much disgust. Too much suppression.
Why would anyone dare to talk about practicing sports in middle pitch? It is owned by boys, right? Why do school pitches seem out of bound for girls? Why are we always told by the hpe department, “You are a girl you cannot play football”, “You are a girl you should not play with boys”, “girls cannot have a football team”.

Facts That No One Told You

Sticky post

01. Vaginal fart

★ A girl can have vaginal farts or vaginal flatulence or vaginal gas or “queefing,” which is just the release of air trapped inside the vagina. It can vary considering a woman’s age, sexual activeness, sweat, feminine hygiene products, tense muscles, etc. Vaginal fart may or may not produce sound. It’s a fairly common phenomenon for anyone with a vagina, at any age. Even our nose farts.

02. Penile fracture

★ A man’s penis can be fractured. It is called a penile fracture. A penis fracture differs from other fractures in our body part because the penis has no bones. It is a severe form of bending injury to the erect penis that occurs when a membrane called the tunica albuginea tears. Penile fracture is very very rare.

03. Cat’s roar

★ Cheetahs can’t roar. They can only meow like domestic cats. There are 38 species of cats on this planet. Most of them are relatively small. Big cats like lions, tigers, leopard, and jaguars can roar because these species belong to the Panthera genus and have a ligament in their voice box that can be stretched to create a larger sound-producing passage, resulting in a wider range of pitch. The lion’s roar is the most famous and can be heard up to five miles away.

04. Ten percent brain myth

★ It is a myth that humans only use 10% of their brains. We’re even using more than 10 percent when we sleep. We use virtually every part of our brain. The brain uses 20% of the body’s energy and contributes to three percent of the total body weight.

05. More than five senses

★ Human beings are not just limited to five senses: Sight, smell, touch, taste, and hear. We have more than five senses.

06. Pink milk

★ Hippopotamus milk is bright pink in color. This is a big misconception about animals belonging to a group of mammals. Hippos produce white or off-white milk (like all mammals). Hippos have no actual sweat glands, but they do have mucus glands, which release an oily secretion frequently referred to as blood sweat. There are two distinct pigments in the secretion: one red (hipposudoric acid) and one orange (norhipposudoric acid). When this secretion first appears, it is colorless. Under the sun, it turns reddish-orange in minutes and then later turns brown. However, it is neither blood nor sweat. Blood sweat not only serves as a natural form of sunscreen and moisturizer for the animal’s sensitive skin but also offers tremendous antibiotic properties to protect hippos from harmful bacteria when they’re in the water.

In theory, when the hipposudoric acid (red) mixes with the milk (white), it produces a pink solution. But there is actually no evidence to suggest that this ever happens.

07. Relativity and Einstein

★ Einstein wasn’t the first to coin the term relativity. Galileo Galilei and Sir Issac Newton first gave the concept of classical relativity. Now the word Einstein is synonymous with genius.
