The Pole Star

 Do you know what is Pole Star ?
 If the answer is no. then carry on reading

The Pole Star is the bightest star which always appears in the north pole.It is always in the north so it's called as North Star.

The Pole Star Will Change?
yes,It does every few thousand years

  • In a little more than 5,000 years from now, Alderamin, the brightest star in the constellation Cepheus, will be almost the Pole Star.
  • About 7,000 years from now, Deneb, the brightest star in Cygnus, will be the pretender for the Pole Star for a while. 
  • In about 12,000 years from now, Vega, the brightest star in Lyra, will be the Pole Star. Vega will be a brilliant Pole Star some six times brighter than Polaris.

For what this pole star is used
This is star helps to find the direction for the saliors,when their were surrounded by water this pole star help them by showing the north direction

How to find The Pole Star
   Two bright constellations occupy opposite sides of the pole star.The Big Dipper and Cassiopeia. As the celestial sphere rotates (or appears to rotate), these constellations also march in circles around the pole . Depending on the hour of the night and the day of the year, one or the other may be low near the horizon where it is barely seen, or even hidden below the horizon. But when that happens the other constellation is sure to be high in the sky, where (weather permitting) it is easily seen.  

Enjoy watching stars.
It's hot but looks cool.

Google Street View Cameras Halted In India

         Google’s  infamous Street View camera cars only set to work on the streets of Bangalore last month, but already Indian authorities have ordered Google to suspend taking images because it has not secured the necessary security clearance. Google has said that after Bangalore, it plans to map all major cities in India the 27th country in which the firm plans to launch Street View. As well as cars, Google had been using some tricycles with Street View’s chunky camera equipment attached.
            Local police were concerned that Bangalore has several military institutions, and a statement given by Google to the AFP confirmed that Google had suspended the operation following a letter from Bangalore’s police commissioner.
           Street View concerns in developing countries are significantly different to obstacles Google has hit recently in Germany and Switzerland, which were about privacy and data retention. Street View Brazil reportedly snapped dead bodies, while in India there are also sensitivities in the wake of the Mumbai attacks and from several bombings in Bangalore itself.

Army officer shot Dilson

             A day after 13-year-old Dilson was shot dead allegedly for trespassing into an Army area, the Tamil Nadu government has handed over the case to the Crime Branch-CID.
           "Our officers and local officers are investigating. Any further information we will let you know," said CB-CID ADGP R Sekar.
            The Army had earlier indicated that a civilian or a policeman could have opened fire and that no arms were permitted in the area. But more than 24 hours after the incident, there is still no clarity on where the investigation stands. Under fire, the Army has now come out with a statement assuring cooperation in the probe.

            But there are still several unanswered questions -
  •  Have the police identified the bore of the bullet that killed Dilson? 
  •  Since the Army uses particular types of bores, won't that be conclusive evidence? 
  •  Is it possible that armed civilians can be roaming around a restricted Army area? 
  •  Why are the police not treating this as a case of murder? 
  •  Has the Army allowed any of its jawans to be questioned by the police?
          Meanwhile, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights has also stepped in and demanded a report from the Tamil Nadu government.

          "Such an innocent activity as plucking of a fruit can lead to this is shocking...We have taken suo moto cognizance and have asked the chief Secretary of Tamil Nadu to submit a report," NCPCR Member Secretary Luv Verma.
  It's a shocking case, which raises several crucial question and hopefully, the postmortem report may reveal more details and the CB CID would be able to achieve a breakthrough soon and nab the culprit.

Maldives Paradise

        Maldives is beautiful vacation destination that has everything a man needs for a great island vacation - white sands, clear waters and perfect weather.
        Paradise Island Resort is one of the most striking features in Maldives. The islands attraction lies in its first class service with a variety of stragically located restaurants and the widest possible range of sports both on land and on the sea.
         Paradise Island, opened in 1994 is located in North Male' Atoll, which is 9.6km from the Airport. Paradise Island is 1km long and 230 meters wide and has beach all around with an excellent marine life around.

To visit the Maldives is to witness the slow death of a nation.
           The country is portrayed by travel companies as a tropical paradiseTo the naked eye, the signs of climate change are almost imperceptible, but government scientists fear the sea level is rising up to 0.9cm a year. Since 80% of its 1,200 islands are no more than 1m above sea level, within 100 years the Maldives could become uninhabitable. The country's 360,000 citizens would be forced to evacuate. The Maldives' survival as a sovereign nation is truly at stake.

10 of the World’s Most Amazing Geological Wonders

       Our planet is the greatest and most beautiful creation and there are many wonderful places where the earth looks astounding and take your breath away. Some of this stunning scenery has been raved about as a wonder of the world and people flock all year round to see. Some of them formed naturally like with volcanic eruptions and others by falling meteorites.

1. The Great Blue Hole

    Outside the coast of Belize, a country in South America, there is an almost perfectly circular hole that has a diameter of 0.4 kilometers. The water inside the hole is 145 meters deep and this depth makes the hole appear deep blue. Tourists from all over dives in the Great Blue Hole of Belize, which also has exciting species of fish to view in clear waters. It is believed that this amazing geological site was formed billions of years ago. When the water rose above the caves, the Great Blue Hole was formed.

2.The Eye of the Sahara

      In the Sahara desert of Mauritania lays one of the most amazing geological wonders, the Eye of the Sahara. It is also called the Richat Structure. In the middle of this bare deserted land is what appears to be a bull’s-eye with a diameter of 50 kilometers. Space shuttle crews even use the Eye of the Sahara as a landmark. In the beginning it was believed that the Eye of the Sahara was caused by the impact of a meteorite with the earth. But this geological wonder is now said to have been formed by the lifting and erosion of the earth.

3.The Hell Gatee
         Darvaza is a town in Turkmenistan, a nation that borders Iran and Afghanistan. The locals call their amazing geological wonder The Door to Hell. This hole in the ground has a never ending supply of burning gas. The story of its formation claims that more than 35 years ago geologists drilling for gas in the area dug too deep and the ground caved in. The geologists dared not go into the hole to get their equipment. Afraid that poisonous gas would come out of the hole, the geologists set fire into the hole and that fire has just never gone out.

4. Ice Towers of Mount Erebus

       In the icy continent of Antarctica is Mount Erebus, a volcanic mountain which is covered with hundreds of ice towers. These towers stand at twenty meters and are always giving off steam. When the steam freezes in that cold, it enables the inner walls of the towers to grow and stretch out. These earthly geological wonders share likeness with other towers on the planet Mars, and the moons of Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune. It is fascinating how constantly active this volcanic mountain is and this brings out another marvel of nature, where fire and ice meet. Mount Erebus last erupted in 1978.

5.The Devil's Marbles
       To Australia’s Aborigines, who are native to the land, the Devil’s Marbles are called Karlu Karlu. These are giant round granite red boulders with a background of a beautiful landscape. Some are 50 centimeters and others are 60 meters across. Some seem to have been posed in strange positions, like balanced on top of each other. The Devil’s Marbles were formed millions of years ago where molten magma came below sandstone and cooled to form granite. The wear and tear of the years and environment caused erosion and other such factors to leave what we see today as the amazing Devil’s Marbles. The Australian Aborigines hold some spiritual significant to this site.

6.Reed Flute Cave
        A famous landmark and tourist attraction in Guanxi, China is the Reed Flute Cave. It is also known as the Palace of Natural Arts. The natural limestone cave is filled with weird and amazing icicle resembling and rock formations with an additional effect of illuminated colored lighting. The geological site is named after the reeds found outside the cave that were used for making musical flutes. It is 240 meters and offers a beautiful scenic tour. The site is ancient as it has inscriptions on the walls that existed from the Tang Dynasty, dating as far back as 792 A.D. 

7.The Salar de Uyuni
         You can find the Salar de Uyuni in Southwest Bolivia. The geological wonder is the world’s largest dried salt lake and it lies 10,000 feet up in the Andes Mountains and measures more than 10,000 square kilometers. This unique landscape is formed by many layers of salt and water, with over 10 meters of salt at the center of it. When it rains, the Salar de Uyuni is mostly submerged and looks like a large mirror. It is believed to have formed with the merging of geothermal springs and brine lakes. Several species of pink flamingoes flock around the Salar de Uyuni to breed.

8.Antelope Canyon
         The most photographed canyon in the southwest of the US is Antelope Canyon. It is found in Navajo land in the state of Arizona. The Navajo people call it Tsé bighánílíní meaning the place where water runs through rocks. The Antelope Canyon has two separate canyons, the Upper and Lower Antelope. Because rain water runs through this site, it smoothes out the rock and makes it curvy. The Antelope Canyon was formed during flashfloods which caused rock erosion, eroding and opening up passageways giving way to deep corridors with interesting rock shapes. For five months in 2006, the Tribal Park Authorities had to shut down the Antelope Canyon due to flooding.

9.Chocolate Hills
        Over fifty square kilometers of Bohol in the Philippines, lay the geological wonder, the Chocolate Hills. There is no chocolate in these hills but all 1,268 to 1,776 of them look chocolate brown in the dry season. The Chocolate Hills are the Philippines third National Geological Monument and can be seen in the provincial flag and seal of the Bohol province. The Chocolate Hills seem to be uniformly shaped and are mostly 30-50 meters high. One theory to explain their formation is that it was caused by the self-destruction of an active volcano. A legend has it that they were formed by the tears of a giant who lost his love. 

 10.Stone Forest
         The Tsingy de Bemaraha Strict Nature Reserve in the country of Madagascar is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is home to the Stone Forest. The Stone Forest is made up of tall and extensive eroded limestone covering 666 square kilometers, looking like a city of limestone towers. The locals call this place “where you cannot walk barefoot” as the terrain is sharp and steep. There are unique species that live in the Stone Forest, like the white lemur, and they can be found in the passageways below as well as on the bases of the needle limestone towers.
