The Godfather by Mario Puzo

It’s a sin to have not read this book. Meet the most just man, reasonable man, a friendly man with the highest of family values ‘The Godfather’. His family is one of the five Mafia families of New York and the most powerful one.

A modern masterpiece, The Godfather is a searing portrayal of the 1940’s criminal underworld.  It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia.  Still shocking forty years after it was first published; this compelling tale of blackmail, murder and family values is a true classic. This masterpiece is read and appeals to all kinds of age group and people from different walks.

The book details the life of Don Corleone and his operations. He has supreme influence and power to get things done his way. Being a man of principles, he respects friendship the most and anybody disloyal to him have to pay the price. The Don isn’t a criminal in his own eyes or his friends, community, workforce and the Italian immigrant community but his own son Michael Corleone keeps distance. Michael Corleone being least interested in the family business went off to join the Army.

The family is at its highest peak and power over the others. But hell breaks down when Don Corleone is shot as he did not accept the Turks’ offer for the drug business. The old man survived the scare. Michael had to take charge of killing the enemy as he was considered the innocent one. He was then sent to Sicily and returned only after three years when proper arrangements were made.

Sonny, the eldest son of Don was killed and hell broke down on the Corleone family. The old man sick and the head dead the powers of the family weakened in the Mafia. It was time for someone competent to take charge and earn the reputation back. Michael Corleone rose like the phoenix and took charge. The rest of the story unfolds as how Michael manages to bring back his father’s empire, to make not as strong but rather stronger than it ever was. He becomes as respected as the Godfather.

The smooth and gripping narration of the book makes you crave for more. The tone of it is perfect as it depicts this dark, moody underworld that is ruled by power rather than democracy and is so intriguing. This book is “an offer you can’t refuse”, if I may say so, in the Don’s word.

Know More About Processors

So, guys in this article we will tell you something about processer like what is processer and how it works

 

“A processor is the logic circuitry that responds to and processes the basic instructions that drive a computer.”
A processor, or “microprocessor,” is a small chip that resides in computers and other electronic devices.

The basic work of processor is to receive input and provide the appropriate output as per the user requirement.

The central processor of computer is known as CPU (central processing unit).

Before Some years CPU has only one core it means that CPU has work on single task at a time

But in modern time companies like INTEL, AMD developed multi-core processors like Dual Core, quad core, octa-core etc. which represents that in duel core processor a both cores working on different tasks at a time it means that the working efficiency of processor is increased and it seems same in other multi core processors

 

Now how the processor is manufacture. There are four things

  1. Architecture
    2. Technology
    3. No. Of Cores
    4. Frequency

There is one company named as ARM. They make the design of processor and give it to manufacturer.

So, Guys this is all about processor if you want to know more about the Processor in detail visit YouTube.

Science v/s Technology

It’s no more about Science and Technology, now it’s all about Science versus Technology. We all want great speeds, fast downloads, least space occupied on storage devices irrespective of the number of files and no network drops. Here are some facts before you head on your path to being the fastest. Name it Wi-Fi or 3G or 4G networks, all emit some or the other electromagnetic waves which affect the brain and body when over exposed.

Being connected to the Internet always, surrounded by it throughout the day, affects the body adversely. The more the technology develops now, the more science will have to speed up to save the humans from becoming victims of unknown, omnipresent disease. Surrounded by computers/laptops is not an issue and never was, the real issue tunes in when there comes Wireless technology. Backaches, less physical strength can still be overcome and can be cured within the short time and existing sciences, but the brain damages, damages done to cellular level by the wireless technologies, cure for that has been under the development since decades.

There are a few devices too that help minimize the harmful effects of the EMF’s, such as EMF Adapter (Source – https://www.safespaceprotection.com/product/emf-adapter ). There are researchers and scientists developing tools and equipment for the long life of humans, but not all have the knowledge of the harmful effects of the high speed we lust for. Also the companies say and show proofs that their cellular network service is completely safe and harmful, but the main question is – “Would they be responsible of any and every effect on any human/customer faces? Would they completely take up all and every responsibility of all the causes?

And this is just a starting of the unstoppable, hidden, omnipresent disease. If we don’t take steps now, there won’t be any steps to take later. The aim here is not about to stop using the Internet and stop being the fastest, it’s all about how safe are we while being the fastest! Surely, everyone loves being the fastest, sending and receiving the information fastest, but then what’s the use of this speed if it leads to our own and our loved one’s deathbeds?

Technology has developed sufficiently now, and we are way too advanced than we were before a decade, now it’s time for Science to advance too, as humans can live long and live in harmony when it’s “Science AND Technology” and not “Science versus Technology”.

Give a thought about it!

A long escape into quieter & greener areas (Ooty)

Ooty is a hill station in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It’s a heavenly place full of greenery and showcases the beauty of nature.

Our first destination was Ooty hill station. We took a toy train from Mettupalayam which took 5 hours to reach our destination. It was an awesome journey in the toy train, enjoying the beauty of nature the forests, tea gardens etc. It was chilly in the morning.

The rose garden was a real treat with its various collection of roses. Similarly the Botanical garden had different types of trees brought from all over the world. It was a pleasant view. The garden was well maintained. Each tree was shaped in a good manner with different shapes. It will take at least 2 hours to have a complete look at the garden.

The tea gardens of Ooty will make you feel like you are taking a stroll in paradise. Then we visited the Pykara River. The area around the lake is located with forest which brings beauty to it.

Then we visited the local markets of Ooty. There were different stalls of fresh vegetables, bunch of fresh carrots. There were stalls of homemade chocolates which were very famous. There were small kids selling flowers to the tourists. Which was a heart touching scenario, they were doing jobs at the age where they should be going to schools. Everyone was ready to buy the flowers even if they were not in need of it, because it would bring a smile onto the faces of those innocent kids.

Thus everyone should once visit this paradise on earth which is been created by god for us. It’s really one of the best holiday destination.

Off the Fear

Take off the hood of bloody fear
Get your self off your schedule once
Bring those eyes under Mooney sky
Let them reflect the booming stars
And the shooting ones would astray u
Go round the constellations
Bring some dust from the nebula
Taste it like you did in childhood
Follow the smell of eternity
Puff it till your lungs blows off
And return it to where it belonged
Master to hunt the light from galaxies
Pour it into the glass of your choice
Gulp it up all and get your view blurred
Wish we could just take that hood off

End of an Era – The Undertaker Announces his retirement at WrestleMania 33

Mark William Callaway a.k.a. The Undertaker announced his retirement at WrestleMania 33.

WrestleMania 33 ended on an emotional note as one of the professional wrestling’s most iconic star – the 52 years old announced his retirement.

He was first introduced in the 1990’s Survivor Series, although he began his wrestling career in World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW) in 1984.

He debuted on WWE as the final member of Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Team.

Throughout his career, he has been a multiple times world heavyweight champion, a six- time tag team titleholder and a Royal Rumble winner.

His first defeat came to Brock Lesnar in 2014 after a continuous long streak of undefeated 21 matches.

About the match:-

After the grand entry of The Undertaker, Roman Reigns was taken aback by the huge support and cheer from the crowd which could be clearly seen in his eyes. Undertaker from the very beginning had the hold on the match with his powerful blows.

But after sometime Reigns came back with his Superman punch and survived the match.

Reigns connected with a spear and somehow, again kicked himself out of being pinned. Reigns with yet another spear, surely now was not going down!!

A bit of fight between the two and finally “Roman Reigns takes down The Phenom!” winning the main event and giving The Undertaker his only second defeat in WrestleMania career!

The most disheartening moment for WWE fans was when The Undertaker removed his gloves off along with his jacket and lays it off on his gloves. Finally, he removed his Signature Hat and put it down. Thus marking the end of a Great Era.

Other WWE superstars from the past and present took to the social media to thank The Undertaker for his 25-years’ service to the industry.

Mick Foley wrote: “#ThankYouUndertaker – my life has been so much better for having known you.”

The Miz also said: “If there’s a dry eye at #WrestleMania ur a bigger man than me. #ThankYouTaker”

Yeh 10 Saal Aapke Naam

IPL – Indian Premier League, the most awaited cricket tournament has just entered in its 10th year, i.e  IPL – 2017 which is organized by BCCI . IPL has emerged as an International cricket tournament where players from India as well as from the foreign countries compete together for an extensive season of matches of around 60 matches per year. The popularity of IPL is due to the limited over game ( 20-20 ) which gives a lot of excitement in short interval of time. Twenty-Twenty over matches have nail biting endings where the game changes in just one ball.

Over the 10 years of IPL, many new players have got opportunity to play for the country by showing their outstanding performance in the IPL season. It brings out the new talent from the country and also gives them chance to prove themselves in front of the world and also, they learn the game strategies by playing with foreign cricket players which comes with great years of experience of playing cricket. TEAM INDIA has got many of its new players from the IPL which are playing in TEST SERIES, ODI SERIES and      T-20 SERIES.

IPL is in fact a big game of capital. Different franchises meet for an auction where player gets sold to a particular team on the basis of his past performances. Players get huge sum of money to play for a franchise.  TV Channel viewership rights are sold for crores of rupees to telecast LIVE matches on the channels and on internet. It’s a very good source of advertisement for a product as the company sponsors the whole tournament and there are lot of ads everywhere in the form of TV ads, Big banners, etc. IPL Franchises are owned by big business tycoons and Bollywood Superstars who holds a share in it or completely owns it.

Talking about the Bollywood superstars owning the share of the franchise definitely brings the glamour quotient in the IPL. There are post match parties where there’s a lot of dance, music, etc. The opening and closing ceremonies of IPL are hosted by the Bollywood actors and there are dance performances by different actors and actresses.

Talking about the controversies which took place during the 10 years – There were cases of spot fixing among the players of different teams which are against the rules of any game played. Two of the franchises have been suspended due to this reason for 2 years which betrayed the bond of sportsmanship by fixing the IPL matches. Match fixing is totally not accepted as they are a part of an International Cricket Tournament and these things make a black spot in the game’s name. Cricket is also known as the “GENTLEMAN’S GAME”. These fixings lessen the quality of game and sportsmanship.

Overall the IPL season is to enjoy the world class cricket for a period of 2 months and that too also in the vacation time of April and May where people do get relaxed after a hectic year and this game cheers them up by filling them with new energies for the next year.

Buy (RED). Give life.

It took Apple 10 years to create an iPhone that actually looks like an apple. Lol just kidding.
Apple Iphone Red, the sassiest of all, the coolest of all and the best part about it is for charity.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+(PRODUCT) RED Special Edition in a vibrant red aluminum finish, in recognition of more than 10 years of partnership between Apple and (RED).
 
The iPhone Red products are to celebrate the 10 years of their partnership with the AIDS charity (RED) founded by  U2 frontman Bono and activist Bobby Shriver. Apple is the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, having contributed more than $130 million (out of a total of $465 million the fund has raised)as part of its partnership with (RED) in the past ten years.
 
When most phone companies release a current handset in a new colour, it’s not news. But Apple isn’t most phone companies(To be honest I personally felt that they are mercilessly overpriced products, yes i don’t feel that anymore). There’s always been an appetite for its colour variants, from the day the iPhone 4 came out in white and subsequent iPhones added gold, rose gold, black and jet black to the range.
 
The new (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus went on sale worldwide on March 24 in the US, Australia, China, Canada, the UK and the mainland Europe. The devices will be available in more than 40 countries. Apple has previously said that the phones will be available in India in April.
 

The new phones are 128GB or 256GB models, starting Rs. 70,000 and Rs. 82,000 in India. Here’s a breakdown of the Indian pricing for the red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 7 (128GB): Rs. 70,000
iPhone 7 (256GB): Rs. 80,000
iPhone 7 Plus (128GB): Rs. 82,000
iPhone 7 Plus (256GB): Rs.92,000

Apart from the red casing, both smartphones are identical to the iPhone 7 line-up release in September 2016.

The price is the same as other colour iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models, too, though as with the jet black iPhone 7, it’s only available in the 128GB and 256GB capacity editions.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End

Naughty Dog brings another PS4 exclusive named Uncharted 4. The game absolutely stands alongside previous entries in the series and Uncharted fans won’t be disappointed. The game is especially made for PS4. Uncharted 4 kicks off with Sam Drake, the long-lost brother of Nathan. Nathan Drake returning to his roots and exploring exactly what it means to be forced back into the world of thieves

 Uncharted 4 was released for PS4 on May 10, 2016. Since its debut in 2007, the Uncharted series has put a huge impact on  the globe, following Nathan Drake from South America to Tibet. you really start to feel the breadth of the landscapes during the fights. With the new rope tool, you can swing into battles, swing away from battles, even shoot while swinging. While the game remains linear, it feels anything but as you battle through it. Another new addition is the stealth feature. Using tall grass, brush and other coverings, you can now sneak up on enemies and systematically clear an area. While this feature is a bit limited, it provides a nice change of pace for a series that has treated fights the same way for too long.

 

Multiplayer comes back with a new style too, which is both a good and bad thing. This series was never counted for multiplayer but to make pace with the running gaming world they have taken multiplayer gameplay on their mind.

 I was one of the luckiest person indeed to play the game as most of us is our PC gamers, so buying a Play Station for playing this game is not a worthy decision. Though I felt uncomfortable at first but the graphics and the game-play made me to say this is one of the best game I have ever played. So shout out to the developers for making such a great games. Eagerly waiting for playing the next one.
