Emotional Baby Is Moved To Tears By Mom’s Singing

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 31, 2013

This 10-month-old’s impassioned response to her mother’s private performance of “My Heart Can’t Tell You No” gives a whole new (beautiful) meaning to the word “cry-baby.”

The little one was identified by Canada’s TVA as Mary Lynne Leroux. Mom, Amanda, told TVA that she’s too shy to sing in public — but clearly, she’s found an appreciative audience at home.

Our hearts can’t tell YOU no, kid.

9-Year-Old’s Talent Is About To Make Her Very Famous

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 31, 2013

When 9-year-old Amira Willighagen from Nijmegen stepped onto the “Holland’s Got Talent” stage, no one was expecting such a big voice to come out of such a very little girl.

Her incredible rendition of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” from the opera “Gianni Schicchi” earned her a Golden Ticket from the judges that would take her straight to the live show. Read the rest of this entry »

Putin Named Most Powerful Person in World by Forbes

Putin

putin-obama_2252410b

Russian President Vladimir Putin was named the most powerful person on the planet by Forbes magazine Wednesday, knocking US President Barack Obama off the number one spot.

Forbes said that Putin, who ranked third last year, showed his dominance in diplomatic maneuvring during the international crisis over Syria, and the fate of fugitive US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden who was given asylum in Russia.

“Putin has solidified his control over Russia (“dictator” is no longer an outlandish word to ponder) and the global stage,” Forbes said.

The top spot has been given to Obama every year since Forbes began compiling the ranking in 2009, except in 2010 when Hu Jintao, the former Chinese leader, was deemed the most influential. Read the rest of this entry »

What Would God Think of the God Particle? (Part 2)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 29, 2013

By Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP and Menas Kafatos, Ph.D., Fletcher Jones Endowed Professor in Computational Physics, Chapman University

Deepak ChopraThe “God particle” seems to be well and truly with us. The award on October 3 of the Nobel Prize in physics that focused on the Higgs boson – the technical term for the God particle – capped a decades-long search that has cost billions of dollars. In the first post we discussed why the discovery of the elusive, fleeting Higgs boson is two-edged. It represents a triumph in human curiosity and our drive to understand the universe. At the same time, however, a huge stumbling block hasn’t been overcome. In fact, the Higgs boson may indicate that creation (whether God exists or not) is becoming ever more mysterious.

The mammoth collider at CERN Switzerland blasted the Higgs boson out of the invisible quantum field so that it could be observed, at the faintest level of measurement and then only for precious milliseconds. But this was enough to disclose the finest level of the subatomic realm so far known to be real. The problem with getting this close to the source of creation is that space, time, gravity, matter, and energy have become more and more ambiguous, as if the quantum revolution hadn’t already done enough in that department. With the probability that so-called “dark” matter and energy may account for 96 percent of the universe – along with another probability, that “dark” stuff doesn’t obey the same laws as visible mater and energy – the picture of creation is undergoing radical revision.

Stephen Hawking added to the ambiguity in his last book, The Grand Design, by siding with those who have basically given up on a Theory of Everything and are settling for a piecemeal patchwork or mosaic of theories, each pertaining to distinct regions of creation while never being synthesized into one grand design. If God exists, the deity must be smiling. For behind the high fives and hoopla over the Higgs boson, there’s a growing doubt that we are anywhere near to understanding the nature of reality. These doubts arise from two major sources.

First, there’s broad agreement that science doesn’t comprehensively describe reality to begin with. Over a century ago the pioneers of quantum theory dismantled the common-sense notion that the world “out there” consists of hard, solid, tangible things. As one of the greatest of these pioneers, Werner Heisenberg, noted, “The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.” No one has ever refuted this claim, and when you add into the mixture the Uncertainty Principle, which says that quantum objects can be located only by the probability that they will appear at a certain place (only after it is observed does a particle actually settle into a measurable position), the solid, tangible world is radically undermined.

Denmark Is Considered The Happiest Country. You’ll Never Guess Why.

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 24, 2013

Last month, Denmark was crowned the happiest country in the world.

“The top countries generally rank higher in all six of the key factors identified in the World Happiness Report,” wrote University of British Columbia economics professor John Helliwell, one of the report’s contributing authors. “Together, these six factors explain three quarters of differences in life evaluations across hundreds of countries and over the years.”

The six factors for a happy nation split evenly between concerns on a government- and on a human-scale. The happiest countries have in common a large GDP per capita, healthy life expectancy at birth and a lack of corruption in leadership. But also essential were three things over which individual citizens have a bit more control over: A sense of social support, freedom to make life choices and a culture of generosity.

“There is now a rising worldwide demand that policy be more closely aligned with what really matters to people as they themselves characterize their well-being,” economist Jeffrey Sachs said in a statement at the time of the report’s release. Read the rest of this entry »

Even after Bedi Twitter apology, the first “Buddha” serial with misinformation

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 20, 2013

By Ram Kumar Shrestha

Buddha_Zee_TVCreating misinformation on Buddha birthplace from Indian side is not a new issue andBuddha born in Nepal Nepali side is very furious from this kind of regular drama and attempt to take an unnecessary advantage from Buddha’s Global importance. A recent Hindi language television serial, “Buddha” launched by Zee TV Network already frustrated Nepalese by Indian over interference.

 In reaction Nepalese did not limit them only in social medias, but also on September 13, staged demonstrations in the streets of Kathmandu against the serial, Nepal Cable TV Association blocked the channel when the new series on the life of Buddha premiered on Sunday (Sept. 8) and which prompted the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu to post hastily the next day, September 14th, on its Facebook wall, “The question of where Lord Buddha was born was settled over 2000 years ago when Emperor Ashoka installed the pillar with his inscription in Lumbini. Buddha was born in Lumbini, which is in Nepal.”  And also actor and TV presenter and commentator Kabir Bedi Twitter apology appeared, “Yes, my friends, I mis-spoke. Forgive me. Lord Buddha was certainly born in Lumbini, Nepal. My apologies to all whose feelings were hurt.” And this issue got space in International papers like Huffington Post and Washington Post as well.

 Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement wrote letter to Chairman of Cabinet of Nepal Khil Raj Regmi, however; some Movement activists informed that when they had gone through the serials on line specially the first serial was very embarrassing because of not corrected misinformation. This clearly shows that Movement guess and writing letter to Chairman of Cabinet of Nepal were correct. And wrote another letter to him as our guess was correct and the scenario is changed now.  Read the rest of this entry »

Malala Marches Toward the Nobel Peace Prize

This Friday, the Nobel committee announces the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. As far as global opinion is concerned, the award is a 16-year-old Pakistani girl’s to lose.

Long before she became a global symbol of children’s educationMalala Yousufzai was one girl squirming under the thumb of the Pakistani Taliban, whose draconian interpretation of Islamic law saw girls’ schools closed in her hometown of Mingora in early 2009. In a frank and witty blog published on the BBC Urdu  website under a pseudonym, Malala, then 11-years-old, chafed at the new regulations that limited her freedom, stopped her from learning and kept her from seeing her friends. The pseudonym, of course, was meant to protect her identity, but it was not long before her private persona—the outspoken daughter of a prominent school administrator—meshed with her public one, and she took her demand that a girls’ right to education be recognized across Pakistan to a national audience, appearing several times on TV talk shows and eventually in an international documentary. “I wanted to speak up for my rights,” she told the BBC on Monday, when reminiscing about her early activism. “And also I didn’t want my future to be just sitting in a room and be imprisoned in my four walls and just cooking and giving birth to children. I didn’t want to see my life in that way.” Read the rest of this entry »

What Would God Think of the God Particle? Part 1

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 10, 2013

By Deepak Chopra, M.D., FACP and Menas Kafatos, Ph.D., Fletcher Jones Endowed Professor in Computational Physics, Chapman University

Deepak-chopraThe award of the Nobel Prize in physics generally creates a mental blur for most people, since no one can comprehend the current state of physics without training in advanced mathematics. This year was somewhat different, thanks to a nickname.

As the world learned on October 3, the British physicist Peter Higgs and the Belgian physicist Francois Englert shared the Nobel, as was widely expected in the profession. The award was given for a theory involving a missing particle in the so-called Standard Model of particle physics. The particle had come to be known as the Higgs boson when it was postulated or more popularly as “the God particle” from a 1993 book by Leon Lederman, another Nobel laureate who also served as the director of the prestigious Fermilab.

The discovery last year at CERN in Switzerland of the Higgs boson was a triumph for the Standard Model theory. Higgs and Englert, along with Robert Brout, Gerald Guralnik, C. R. Hagen, and Tom Kibble, had hypothesized the existence of a field filling the entire vacuum of space. If it hadn’t been dubbed the God particle, physicists wouldn’t be saddled with an embarrassing, catchy name. Meant initially as a joke, the enduring moniker suggests that in some way science has reached an ultimate destination. Creation has surrendered its final secret, even if there is no God. But in reality particle physics keeps moving forward, and after the celebration at finding a Higgs boson dies down, new frontiers will open up. Meanwhile, every physicist who is asked about the God particle takes pains to distance himself from the label, including Higgs himself.

Now that God has been invoked in the discussion, however, it’s worth asking if we are getting closer to understanding Him/Her/It in a way that matters beyond the arcane of quantum physics. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Big lender’ China urges US to avoid bankruptcy

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 8, 2013

China's Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao (Reuters)

China, the US government’s largest foreign creditor, is “naturally concerned about developments in the US fiscal cliff”, as Reuters quoted Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao giving the Chinese government’s first public response to the Oct 17 US deadline for raising the debt ceiling.

China currently holds 22.85 percent of the US $16.7trln debt, which makes it the biggest US creditor.

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew calculated the US would run out of money by October 17 and have less than $30 billion cash in hand if Congress fails to agree on its spending plans. Read the rest of this entry »

मलेसियामा लुम्बिनी र बौद्धस्थलको पहिचानवारे फोटो प्रदर्शनी

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 8, 2013

रामचन्द्र नेपाल,  क्वालालम्पुर । भारतका केही संचार माध्यमले तथा केही पुस्तकहरुमा बुद्धको जन्म भारतमा भएको भन्ने भ्रम छरिरहेका बेला लुम्बिनी र बौद्धस्थलहरुको पहिचानका बारेमा मलेशियामा बृहत फोटो तथा बृत्तचित्र प्रदर्शनी गरेको छ । बुद्धको जन्म लुम्बिनी नेपालमा भएको भन्ने सन्देश दिन राजधानी क्वालाम्पुरको महावौद्ध विहार व्रेकफिलमा आइतवार बृहत फोटो तथा बृतचित्र प्रदर्शनी गरिएको हो ।

निजी खर्चमा ७६ वटा लुम्बिनी कपिलबस्तु लगायत बौद्ध तिर्थस्थलका फोटो बोकेर आएका रुपन्देहीका संचारकर्मी चेतन पन्तको सहयोगमा एनआरएन मलेशियाले यस्तो बृहत प्रदर्शनी आयोजना गरेको हो । बिश्व शान्तिको मुहान तथा दया एव करुणाका पात्र भगवान बुद्ध जन्मस्थल लुम्बिनी हो तथा बुद्धले २९ बर्ष राजकुमार जिवन बिताएको शाक्य राजधानी कपिलबस्तु नेपालमा पर्दछ भन्ने बिश्व सामु छर्लड. पार्न एनआरएनले प्रदर्शनीको आयोजना  गरेको बताएको छ । संसारभरीका नेपालीहरुले लुम्बिनी नेपालमा पर्दछ भन्ने अभियान चलाईरहँदा, आफ्नो पनि नेपालीसंगै मिलेर यो अभियानलाई सफल पार्न बिभिन्न देशमा हिडिँरहेका फोटो संग्रहकर्ता एवं संचारकर्मी चेतन पन्तले बताए । उनले यस अघि हडकड, थाइल्याण्ड  र अमेरिकामा पनि यस्तै अभियान चलाएको जानकारी गराए ।
