Can India have a Google of its own?
The idea behind the suggestions of India becoming an innovation powerhouse or at least to start with a company that becomes an innovation education is to revamp India’s education system that has for long focussed on training people to get a job and not really thinking creatively. Fostering creative thinking by directing the education system towards a more research oriented framework can do the trick for India. This coupled with social support for our budding technology entrepreneurs can put India on the fast track of finally having a Google of its own.

There have been innumerable speculations as to whether India indeed would become a superpower by the end of the century or at least be at par with China and the USA at the high tables of the world. Though as Indians, we have reasons to feel optimistic, it should be noted that no country ever has dominated the world economy without being at the forefront of the technological revolution of its era. Be it the British through their industrial revolution and ensuing exports in the 18th century, the Americans in the 19th century through innovation or the Indians themselves in 1000 BC by being pioneers in the field of education and science - all historical instances of countries leading the world did so in terms of creativity and originality of thoughts.
Hence if India wants to regain its lost reputation of being the leader, then it has to quickly adopt the means to innovate through creativity and original ideas. In other words, it either has to come up with a set of new firms that will deliver brand new products and services to the world and revolutionize the way mankind transacts its daily affairs or upgrade its present set of firms to deliver innovative…...

Frankenstiens Transformation

...gave wings to the soul, and allowed it to soar from the obscure world to light and joy. The sight of the awful and majestic in nature had indeed always the effect of solemnizing my mind, and causing me to forget the passing cares in life" (958). The views of Montavert had before given Frankenstein a tranquil and exhilarating experience, where he was able to forget his worries and enjoy the beautiful scenery that surrounded him. Now, however, Viktor only sees grief, regret, and guilt in the mountains of Montavert, and the natural images employed to describe his current scene describe the specific emotions that he is feeling. Fog and mists are used twice throughout the passage as obscuring Viktor's views of the mountains. The "thick mists [hiding] the summits of the mountains" (958) are the first images described in the passage, and the "vast mists..curling in thick wreaths around the opposite mountains" (958) are the last. This obscuring of his views hints at the confusion and guilt Viktor is feeling at the moment of their description. Viktor is exploring Montavert in solitude because he wishes to experience the same feelings of before, of resolution and awe, but the incomplete and obstructed view prevents this from happening, causing Viktor to dwell on the sad and guilty feelings he is experiencing from allowing his Creature to kill his family and unjustly punish a friend....

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria

...World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Dawnette Polland ENG 325 Intermediate Composition Jessica Ruddick October 22, 2012 World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria Blizzard Entertainment’s (Blizzard) World of Warcraft games are a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that was reported by Craig Glenday (2009), in the Guinness World Records 2009 as having the “most-subscribed MMORPG players” numbering at 9.1 million (p. 245). Although I have not played the fantasy game of World of Warcraft (WoW) since its inception in 1994, I have, however, played three of the WoW expansions with each leading into the next game’s storyline. The first expansion was The Burning Crusade, which led into The Wrath of the Lich King, followed by Cataclysm where the endboss, Deathwing, was destroyed. I also participated in the beta testing for the anticipated fourth expansion of Mists of Pandaria (Mists) which has recently been launched for world play. Mists could quite possibly indicate Blizzard is at the end of the storyline in the series of WoW, thereby causing the loss of its mainstream worldwide gaming subscribers—adults. In order to play MMORPG games, a subscription fee is paid monthly that allows the player access to a company’s server. After the launch of Cataclysm in December 2010, the WoW subscribers had globally reached 12 million. The number of subscribers started to decline over the last year and a half when a majority of disgruntle gamers had......

Myth Comparison

...Yin sank downward into the earth and became one with it. And earth became square.” (Rosenberg, 2006, p.345) “Yang gathered into himself all that was bright and light. And, like a mist, Yang drifted upward into Heaven and became one with it. And Heaven became round.” (Rosenberg, 2006, p.345) It is also said, that Yang’s breath became hot and made fire and the sun, while Yin’s was cool and created water and the moon. From these came celestial bodies as well as different bodies of water, settling with their creators in Heaven and on Earth. The sheer essence of the Goddess Yin and the God Yang become the four seasons and from that comes all that is in existence, plants, trees, insects, humans etc. In this myth we see the two become separate entities that together form all of existence. The celestial beings and water together help to create all living things upon the earth that has been created. We see no destruction caused by the previous chaos, but the opposite, it is from the chaos that the God and Goddess are created and allowed to create life in many forms. In the Babylonian myth of the Enuma Elish it is taught that in the beginning only water and mist existed. Father Apsu ruled the sweet waters and Mother Tiamat ruled the salt waters. These bodies of water flowed together as one unit and the mist that resulted was their son Mummu. The blending of these waters resulted in the creation of Anshar and Kishar, who eventually parented the God of heavens...

...away”, helps the reader to wonder what will happen next while conveying a sense of fear and mystery. The “grey mist seeped damply through his clothes” has a powerful effect on the reader as it shows that the mist, which symbolizes Kingshaw’s thoughts are taking over his clothes, which is basically Kingshaw, himself. The fact that “he could not see very far ahead” because of the mist shows the reader that Kingshaw can’t see his future as well, as he’s lost in his “mist”, thoughts. The reminder of the crow incident makes the reader shiver while feeling pity for him as it comes up in his memories. The word “followed” conveys a sense of mystery as it is foreshadowing that Kingshaw is being followed right now, by someone who has previously compared to the crow, Hooper. The words “wet” and “slithery” may symbolize that there is something wrong with his plan, a flaw in his path. The quote “He could not see the house at all” may tell us that the atmosphere is extremely calm compared to Warings- the reader expects that something will happen in the following minutes. “Silence” and “coldness” shows the war Kingshaw has inside his head, having a conflict with his thoughts. The rustling and squeaking over “wet grass” shows that he’s walking in a path that will destroy him step by step- it also foreshadows that his plan will fail. The repetition of “everything ahead of him was… in mist” highlights the idea that he has nothing to look or hope for. The words, “alone”, “abandoned” again......

Today, people are moving to “the cloud” to run those application and store their data. Since data is valuable, security is essential in a world where one’s data is stored in the public domain. It is important to be aware of the physical locations where data is stored and the laws that impact rights to that data.

...contracted from environmental factors such as mists and fogs. Van Helsing says “Dracula can come in mist which he create” (Stocker 211). In the novel character Jonathan Harker uses these words to describe Dracula’s home; “sickly odor”(Stoker 50), “the air stagnant and foul”, “fouler air”, ills or mortality and with the pungent, acrid smell of blood”(Stocker 221). The above text all describing miasmatic surroundings. Mina also gives acknowledgement to the miasmatic environment when she says “the mist grew thicker and thicker, and… The last conscious effort which imagination made was to show me a livid white face bending over me out of the mist” (Stocker 227-228). Stocker is very clearly depicting Dracula as being the disease himself the miasmatic. The second theory of infection is contagionism. Vampirism is a “disease” directly transmitted from host to victim through bite. During the time period in which Dracula was set cholera was also being spread worldwide by ships just as vampirism in Dracula had been being spread. Dracula could be seen in the novel as a black dog jumping from boat to land infecting many victims. Therefore spreading a contagious disease. The germ theory of disease states that some diseases are caused by microorganisms. The germ theory is also the third theory of infection. However, the germ theory depicts that disease is caused by small microorganism that can be found in stagnant water like cholera and also in mist like miasmatic environments. In......

...irrelevant things, such as the mist, which clouds some of the story. In doing so, he adds a hidden meaning to these objects, forcing the readers to think. The mist captures aspects of mystery and also of surprise, it is a part of who Pip is. By using the mist as a symbol, Dickens represents the mystery and indecision overshadowing Pip. Great Expectations cleverly uses symbolism to represent something much more significant than what is on the surface. Dickens uses the mist to represent the clarity needed to think. Pip is someone who struggles to find himself, to find where he belongs. He feels comfortable in the mist, as it hides and obscures him from the world for a short time. It grounds him, reminding him that no matter where he goes he will always be just a laboring boy. It's something that he is familiar with, as it was part of his turbulent childhood. The mist knows Pip, and likewise, Pip knows the mist. In the mist and its obscure nature, Pip becomes transparent. It gives him answers, " the mists were rising as I walked away… Biddy was quite right, all I can say is—they were quite right, too" (Dickens, p. 432) the mist knows the cowardly tendencies of Pip. Seeing the moves he is going to make before he makes them. The mist brings Pip back, reminding him of who and what he is. The mist is also symbolic of danger, and mystery. Through the mist we are introduced to the fearsome character of Magwitch. As Magwitch emerges from the mist it is plain to see that......

...Guilt: Guilt is a strong feeling that arises from one's realization of their own mistakes. When people realize the true value of time, they will feel very guilty for having wasted much of their time in things that were unnecessary. In addition, guilt is a feeling that induces one to fix their mistakes... Verily, guilt is a blessing from Allah SWT as it tells us that our hearts are intended for purity. People act upon guilt because unless they fix their mistakes, the feeling won't go away. Grief: Grief gives one contemporary feelings of sorrow. However, it may come to one's realization that the deceased requires to be prayed for; in order for the people to meet their loved ones once again, they will have to start utilizing their time for the better. Although death allows for a painful feeling, it also allows for an impactful feeling--for which, in the long run, leads to beneficence. As shown in the picture, a woman longs for her deceased loved ones...but it is to her knowledge that she may benefit them and herself by performing worship and dua.
