This week, famed physicist Stephen Hawking helped launch a major new effort to search for signs of intelligent alien life in the cosmos, even though he thinks it’s likely that such creatures would try to destroy humanity.
Since at least 2010, Hawking has spoken publicly about his fears that an advanced alien civilization would have no problem wiping out the human race the way a human might wipe out a colony of ants. At the media event announcing the new project, he noted that human beings have a terrible history of mistreating, and even massacring, other human cultures that are less technologically advanced — why would an alien civilization be any different?
And yet, it seems Hawking’s desire to know if there is intelligent life elsewhere in the universe trumps his fears. Today (July 20), he was part of a public announcement for a new initiative called Breakthrough Listen, which organizers said will be the most powerful search ever initiated for signs of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe.

“I am here today because I believe the Breakthrough initiatives are incredibly important,” Hawking said during a media event at the Royal Society in London. “It’s time […] to search for life beyond Earth. The Breakthrough initiatives are making that commitment. We are alive. We are intelligent. We must know.” Read the rest of this entry »

[अन्य देशमा छिट्टै चुनाव हुने भएकोले यस्मा उल्लिखित केही कुरा ती देशमा शिक्षाको रुपमा लिन सकियोस भन्ने अभिप्रायले यो अत्यन्तै संक्षिप्त प्रतिबेदनलाई यसरी सार्वजनिक रुपमा पेश गरिएको हो । ]
एनआरएनए अस्ट्रेलिया चुनाव २०१५ को पर्यबेक्षकको हैसियतमा निर्वाचनस्थल भिक्टोरियाको ५९ ए रोजबेरी एभेन्यू प्रेस्टनमा म करीब १५:०० देखि १७:३० सम्म रहँदाको समयाबधिमा आफूले देखेका, महसूस गरेका र अन्यबाट प्राप्त सुझाबहरुलाई बुँदागत रुपमा पेश गर्न चाहन्छु । यहाँ प्रस्तुत बुँदाहरु एनआरएनको चुनाबमा मात्रै केन्द्रित नभएर योसंग अन्तर्सम्बन्धित कुराहरुलाई पनि समेटिनेछ ।
१ एनआरएनएको यो बर्षको चुनाव यस्को परिवर्तित बिधानले ‘प्यानल’ बनाई चुनाव लड्न नपाउने आचार संहिता स्पस्ट रुपमा ब्यबस्था गरेका कारण चुनाव के कसरी होला भन्ने कुरा चासो र चुनौतीको बिषय थियो । नयाँँ बिधान अनुरुप एउटा बिल्कुलै फरक परिबेशमा हुन गैरहेको पहिलो चुनाव भएका कारण पनि धेरैको ध्यान अस्ट्रेलियातिर तानिनु स्वभाबिकै थियो र संभाबित समस्या न्यूनिकरणका खातिर चुनाव प्रचार प्रसारको समयदेखि नै निर्वाचन समितिले बिभिन्न किसिमबाट सजगता अपनाएको कारण स्पस्ट रुपमा समूहगत प्रचार प्रसार भएको खासै पाइेएन । समग्रमा निर्वाचन संभाबित चुनौतिलाई सफलतापूर्बक पार गरेको रुपमा लिनु पर्ने देखिन्छ ।
२ अर्कै शहरबाट जानु पर्ने भएकोले म निर्वाचनस्थल पुगेको समय निर्वाचन समयाबधिको उत्तरार्ध भएकोले पनि आफूले अन्य ब्यक्तिहरुसंग बुझे अनुसार तुलनात्मक रुपमा सो समय शान्त थियो । तसर्थ अपेक्षाकृत चुनौति समानुपातिक याने कि कम हुनु स्वाभाबिकै थियो यध्यपि यदाकदा अनुक्रमानुपाति हुनै नसक्ने भन्ने होइन ।
३ कम्पुटरहरु अत्यन्तै ढिला भएका कारण Login गर्न कतिपयलाई समस्या भएको जस्तो पनि पाइयो । एकजनाको लागि एउटा User name र Password हुने भएको र त्यसबाट एकपटक मात्रै भोटिङ गर्न पाइने भएकोले आगामी बर्षमा घरबाटै पनि भोटिङ गर्न मिल्ने ब्यबस्था गरिएको खण्डमा ब्यबस्थापन सहज हुने र खर्चमा ठुलो मितब्ययिता हुने मात्रै नभएर अधिकाधिक भोट खस्ने संभाबना पनि हुने भएकोले यसतर्फ संबेदनशील हुनु उपयुक्त देखिन्छ जस्ले बिदेशको ब्यस्त जीवनका बाबजुद भीटिङको लागि समय ब्यबस्थापन सहज् बनाउन सक्छ । Read the rest of this entry »

In a small province located in the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, a young prince grew up, pampered with the pleasures of wealth and comfort. He was secure in his own safe haven within the Palace walls, oblivious to anything beyond the threshold of his rich home. But at one point in his early years of youth, he was aroused by a sudden desire to explore the village over which he was to reign one day. As he roamed around the streets with child-like energy in his feet, he came across something that stopped him short; a cripple man, whose face was distorted with the wrinkles of age, his hair a grey wiry mess. He wore filthy rags that were stained in sweat and his eyes held an expression unfamiliar to the young Prince; a look of immense pain and suffering. The young Prince walk on, still unable to remove the image of the crippled man in his mind. Soon, he came across a funeral procession where men and women alike sobbed in unbearable sorrow. He could only observe in astonishment as for the first time he felt pain, real, genuine pain. Read the rest of this entry »
