Reliance to launch a 4G mobile phone in India?


Reliance has plans to launch a 4G tablet in India this year. Close to fifteen Taiwanese manufacturers are ready to submit prototypes for the tablet which will be sold at a retail price of Rs. 8000. This is a little jumping the gun kind of news and is only expected from Reliance Industries. Many companies are still struggling to get started on the 3G services and Reliance is talking 4G. Reliance has money and muscle to lay out their network well in time and to procure as many tablets as it can to break-even.

Voice by now is a commodity but, it still is a much needed commodity. A person buying a 4G tablet would want the calling and video conferencing capabilities on it. There are hardly any players on the 4G scene. Companies which might not have a problem are — Bharti and Aircel – which have licenses for 2G and 3G in select areas. Augere, Tikona and Qualcomm are other players in the 4G arena.
Reliance along with BSNL/MTNL is the only company which has 4G spectrum in all 22 circles. Reliance along with Augere, Tikona and Qualcomm are the new players who don’t have 2G or 3G spectrum.
Tablets is one thing and launching a phone is another thing. Reliance do not have license to operate in the 2G and 3G calls where most of the voice calls are based. 4G is a network which facilitates faster download speeds for internet and it facilitates voice calls too. That is where the whole thing gets messy, at least to me.
If Reliance can launch a 4G tablet it can as well launch a 4G phone. It can collaborate with HTC to get HTC Thunderbolt to India. That’s a possibility. To get to that point, several questions have to be answered.
Can Reliance Industries offer voice calls over 4G network? If Reliance is disallowed for voice calls, would there be demand for its 4G tablets?

SACHIN NEAR CENTURY MILESTONE


Bookies are flooded with bets on Sachin getting his 100th century against Pakistan at Mohali; estimated Rs.6,000 crore to change hands on big bets.

With just a day left for the mother of all battles in Mohali, bookmakers across the country are gearing up to make the mother of all killings on the semi-final clash.

Not only is the match slated to be a firecracker; the odds set by the bookies are no less volatile. India is slated as favourites at 62 paise, while the Pakistanis are set at Rs.1.58.

However, the odds for the Indian batting line-up and the Pakistan bowling line-up are completely contrast to the result of the match. Bookies speculate that if India wins the toss it will score between 265-275 in the `lambi session'.

On the other hand, Pakistan is expected to score between 310 and 320 after winning the toss. Pakistan's high scoring rate is attributed to India's poor bowling line up.

Also, keeping in mind the fact that the Indian middle-order is capable for crumbling under pressure.

A large number of top bookies are headed for Mohali to witness the match and lay bets. It is likely to help them make a better assessment of the situation during the game.

Bookies are also facing a crunch of liquid cash as hundreds of crores are changing hands every day during the world cup. Most of them are paying a little extra to get their quota of cash, which needs to be paid within 24 hours of the match result.

A large number of transactions have already taken place through an army of errand boys and hawala networks. A large number of high profile bookies from Pakistan are planning to 'cut' their bets through Dubai, which is the hub of illegal money transfers during the betting season.

The tally clerks recruited for the match have been asked to report for duty 24 hours before the match as they are not supposed to know in advance where they would be stationed during the match.

When asked about the investigation into the betting syndicate, Joint Commissioner of police (crime) Himanshu Roy, said, "We are keeping a watch."

All eyes are on the little master's performance in the crunch game that could land India in its third World Cup final. Sachin Tendulkar, who currently has 99 centuries under his belt, will be in the hunt for century number 100 as the Indians take on Pakistan in Mohali on Wednesday.

Having missed out on the three-figure landmark in Ahmedabad, expectations of the little master getting to the record against arch-rivals Pakistan are very high. In fact, bookies have close to Rs. 100 crore riding on just the master blaster's century.

The going price on Sachin scoring a century is Rs. 4.05, while a half-century will fetch Rs. 1.50. Insiders informed that Sachin's century odds are attracting more bets than the match itself.

"With more bets on Sachin scoring a century bookies expect that the turnover from the India-Pakistan match could be between Rs. 6,000 and 10,000 crore," a senior bookie told MiD DAY.

READ THE AURA


How to see and READ the AURA: 



There is nothing “paranormal” in the Universe, except our limited understanding of Nature. What we think we “know” on Earth now is just a tiny drop in the Ocean of Knowledge.

In the distant past, people admired things they could not explain and called them “miracles”. Long ago, people were able to see Auras. Advanced spiritual people such as Buddha, Christ and their immediate students were painted with golden haloes around their heads, because some artists could actually see Auras. In Australia remote West Kimberleys you can find prehistoric cave paintings (bottom left), many thousands of years old, depicting people with golden haloes. (photo courtesy G.L.Walsh) Nature gave us ALL we need to see Auras. All is required is the knowledge how to use your senses together with your conscious effort. If you decide not to try, you will NEVER see the Aura. On the other hand, when you SEE something for yourself, no longer will you need to rely on believing someone. You will KNOW. And you can use your knowledge to learn more.

Many great people in the past complained that "we have eyes and we do not see". Further in this document you will discover what they meant.

ANYONE can see auras to some degree. Rather than create an aura of mystery around my newly acquired skill, my approach is to show everyone what their eyes are capable of. When nearly everyone (including children) sees a similar thing, I consider this a part of our Nature and I say that it deserves our attention.

This page summarizes the content of regular lecture-workshops on seeing and Reading Auras held by Dr. Tom J. Chalko. It was written to be BRIEF. For best results you need to refer to it from time to time. If you want to arrange workshop and have a group of people ready, please contact the author. You can also buy Dr Tom J. Chalko workshop notes (an expanded version of this document). 
What is the Aura ?Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as a electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example). This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see the Aura vibration.

The most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it containsINFORMATION about the object.


Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants ...) changes with time, sometimes very quickly. Aura around non-living object (stones, crystals, water...) is essentially fixed, but can be changed by our conscious intent. Above facts have been observed by scientists in Russia, who have been using Kirlian effect to study Auras for the last 50 years.

The Aura around humans is partly composed from EM (electromagnetic) radiation, spanning from microwave, infrared (IR) to UV light. The low frequency microwave and infrared part of the spectrum (body heat) seems to be related to the low levels of the functioning of our body (DNA structure, metabolism, circulation etc.) whereas high frequency (UV part) is more related to our conscious activity such as thinking, creativity, intentions, sense of humor and emotions. Russian scientists, who seem to be about 3 decades ahead of everyone else in Aura research, make experiments suggesting that our DNA can be altered, by influencing its microwave Aura. The high frequency UV part is very important and most interesting but largely unexplored. And this part can be seen with naked eyes.

Why do we need to see auras ?
Colors and intensity of the aura, especially around and above the head have VERY special meanings. Watching someone's aura you can actually see the other person's thoughts before you hear them expressed verbally. If they do not agree with what this person is saying, you effectively see a lie every time. No one can lie in front of you undetected. We cannot fake the Aura. It shows our True Nature and intentions for everyone to see.

Also, aura is our spiritual signature. When you see a person with a bright, clean aura, you can be SURE that such person is good and spiritually advanced, even if he/she is modest and not aware of it. When you see a person with a gray or dark aura, you may be almost SURE, that such person has unclear intentions, regardless how impressive, eloquent, educated, "good looking" or "well dressed" he/she seems to appear.

It is ESPECIALLY important to check the aura of any religious leader, "spiritual teacher", "master" or a "guru". Such a person should have a clearly defined yellow-golden halo around the head. If he/she does not have it, you are MUCH better on your own.

Joining a sect or a religion that is led by incompetent people without good Auras is very dangerous for your consciousness. Where is the danger ? When the time comes to really use the information stored in your consciousness from this lifetime, there may be almost nothing useful there, if you focus your life on following rituals and the flock of other people. In such case it is necessary to re-learn everything from the beginning. Most sect, religion and political leaders have only two things in mind: money and power to control people. And you can SEE it in their Aura for yourself. Imagine changes on Earth if many people can see Auras of their leaders and start choosing them on the basis of their Auras.

By reading Aura it seems possible to diagnose malfunctions in the body (diseases) long before physical symptoms become evident. By consciously controlling your Aura you can actually heal yourself.

However, healing of the physical body is nothing in comparison to what seeing and reading auras can do for our consciousness, spiritual development and our awareness of Nature.

Everyone has an Aura. But most people on Earth have VERY WEAK and dull Auras. This seems to be a direct consequence of their life long materialistic attitude negating and suppressing the development of consciousness, cultivating fear, envy, jealousy and other similar emotions. Such attitude suppresses their True Nature, and their Auras seem to become suppressed too.

When you learn to see Auras, be prepared for a REALLY HARD question: “Can you tell me what my Aura is ?” and the situation when you don't see any Aura or you see something you don't want to talk about. One of the best answers I found is “why don't you learn to see it for yourself ? “. And this is one of the main reasons why I teach people to see auras.

When people realize that their Aura is on display and many people are able to see it, they will watch what they think. And they will try to see and improve their own Aura. In the process they will become better and wiser, being able to recognize intentions of other people. Surely, the entire world will become much better if all people can see and read Auras.

Children and the Aura:
Very young children (up to 5 years of age) see auras naturally. Infants frequently look ABOVE a person in front of them. When they don't like the color of the aura above the head, or if this color is much different from their parent's aura, they cry, no matter how much smiling the person does.

Children have much cleaner and stronger auras than most of adults, who are usually completely enslaved by the materialistic world and suppress their Nature by following superficial examples. When I taught my 12 year old son to see his own Aura, he told me that when he was little he was able to see Auras most of the time. But no one paid any attention, so he thought that it was not important and maybe there was something wrong with his eyesight. This is a typical scenario. In my opinion children should learn to see and read Auras in a primary school, so they never lose this natural ability.

Japanese Baby Robot 'Born'

MAN vs ROBOT ?

FASCINATING FACT THAT WE FOUND TODAY ...


Chinese Farmer Builds Robot Army

A Chinese farmer with very little education has built 26 robots over the past 30 years. His love and obvious talent for technology has inspired him to design these robots and build them literally from scrap materials.
Wu Yulu, 46, has been thinking about building robots from the time he was eleven years of age. While sitting on his doorstep watching villagers pass by, he came up with the idea of building a machine that walks like a man.
wuyulu03 Chinese Farmer Builds Robot Army picture
His first robot took several years to build and could only shuffle along as it could not raise its legs. Over time, his designs became more complex and his creations are now capable of scaling walls, serving water, lighting cigarettes, playing musical instruments and writing calligraphy!
wuyulu02 Chinese Farmer Builds Robot Army picture
Wu’s home is near Beijing and he has plunged his family into debt by spending up to two-thirds of his monthly income on his robot creations.  He has been forced to sell some of them to pay bills.
Wu considers all the robots as his sons, and has names for them according to the order in which they were invented, ranging from Wu No.1 to Wu No.26.
“They are all my sons, so they must bear my surname” said Wu.
