U.S. Transportation Department Probes FAA's Certification of 737 MAX
29. March 2019 at 17:50
by Maulline Gragau
New reporting claims that engineers involved in evaluations of the plane -- a Boeing 737 Max 8 -- knew there were flaws in the original report used to certify the model before it was approved to fly. Following the Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 air crash in October 2018 that killed 189 people, the U.S. Transportation Department launched an inquiry into the Boeing 737 MAX.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the U.S. Transportation Department which has been probing the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) approval of the 737 MAX especially its new anti-stall control system known as MCAS (Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System) has warned two FAA offices to safeguard computer files. 


The Seattle Times also reported that Boeing’s original 737 MAX safety analysis of MCAS that was used by FAA to certify the aircraft had fundamental flaws. According to the report, the system had too much power and lacked redundancy. The situation may have been compounded by FAA rules that permit aircraft manufacturers to self-certify. 


Seattle Times spoke to current and former engineers on condition of anonymity about the...

Bilingualism.

by Abdelrahman Elaraby
"Brain power improves by brain use, just as our bodily strength grows with exercise" Simple words were said by a man thinking so logically that anything by continuous use will improve. Learning new languages is a good brain exercise that doesn’t only have tangible effects on one’s personality, but it also does wonders to the brain structure and the wiring among the neurons.

Bilingualism refers to a situation when a child confronts two distinct languages at the same time . Bilingualism is closely related to the phenomenon of language acquisition the particular way in which we all learn our native language as children. We acquire the skill, and even if we have to work on our writing, speaking seems as natural as breathing. Scientists claim that language acquisition is a process that starts at the beginning of our lives and ends around puberty. Bilingualism was considered a must be avoided method in raising children to prevent some myths and misconceptions that greatly prevailed in the beginning of 19th century. 


One of these myths that learning more than one language in the childhood can lead to confusion and inability to differentiate between the words of the two languages. This commo...

Are comma splices always wrong?
17. February 2019 at 09:15
by Mohamed Emad
Comma splices, one of the most frequent mistakes in English and a horrid sight to any English teacher out there. However, very few are aware that there are types of comma splices that are perfectly acceptable.

Before proceeding to explain when the usage of a comma splice is acceptable, let’s first define what a comma splice is. A comma splice occurs when attempting to join two independent clauses using a comma. For example, consider the following sentence:

“Tom is such a thoughtful guy, he cares a lot about other people.”


The two clauses above can stand by themselves as complete sentences, and thus they cannot be joined with a comma. Instead, they may be joined using a coordinator (and, but, or, nor, yet, and so), or separated using some form of end-stop punctuation (a period, semicolon, exclamation mark, etc.)


Because of this, almost everyone has the wrong impression that the “avoid any comma splice” rule is one that must be slavishly obeyed. But that isn’t true at all. In fact, a comma splice is s...

Blind Dolphin- The second most endangered freshwater dolphin species in world

by Bisma Shamsi
The Indus River dolphin, locally known as “Bhulan” or the “Blind dolphin” is one among the South Asian River Dolphins and is one of the world's rarest animal that is the second most endangered freshwater dolphin species in the world.
A flagship species, this dolphin is an indicator of the biological health of the aquatic and terrestrial environment adjoining the Indus River. It is found exclusively in freshwater, living not only in the main channels, but also, during the flood season, in seasonal tributaries and the flooded lowlands. The scientific name for the Indus river dolphin is, “Platanista gangetica minor”. The Indus river dolphin is one of around 80 known species of cetacea and one of around 40 known species of dolphin.

Due to their apparent small population size these marine mammals are currently considered endangered and hunting them is considered illegal. The Blind Dolphin has a long beak and a stocky body. It has a low triangular hump on its back in place of a 'true' dorsal fin. It is gray-brown in color, sometimes with a pinkish belly. The ...

In today’s society, we are focussing on complex solutions to the issues that our society faces everyday. One of the biggest challenges today is overcoming the mental health crisis in schools and universities in Canada. Research has shown that physical activity offers a simple solution to this global problem. This is the goal of Active mental health Initiative, a student run national organization in Canada.
In a society where we are surrounded by confusing, complex and convoluted remedies for even the most minor mental health concerns, it can be hard to remember the benefits that can be derived from the simpler aspects of life.

Ontario colleges and universities are currently facing a student mental health crisis that impacts the lives and academic performance of the students. The causes leading to this crisis are multifactorial, including the challenges of transitioning from high school to university, adaptation to a new social environment, financial difficulties, stress of academics and decreased support of family. The positive aspect is that universities are addressing the challenges of student mental health by laying down wellness strategies and opening student wellness centres, specifically catered towards mental health issues.

Humans Vs Humanoids

Artificial intelligence is one of humankind’s truly revolutionary endeavours. As AI becomes more sophisticated and its ability to perform human tasks accelerates exponentially, we're finally seeing some attempts to wrestle with what that means, not just for business, but for humanity as a whole.
Faced with automated future, what moral framework should guide us? Optimizing logistics, detecting fraud, composing art, conducting research, providing translations and what not, intelligent machine systems are transforming our lives for the better. But the question is getting better by how far and to what extent?

The rudimentary form of algorithmic optimization for content and other numerous tech addictive methods are the new frontier of human dependency. When used right, this could evolve into an opportunity to nudge society towards more beneficial behaviour. However, in the wrong hands it could prove detrimental by directing human attention and triggering certain actions. These actions can compel us to think “are we heading to be a cyborg?”

The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren't about what we experience in everyday life, but scientists have confirmed them. This theory says that space and time are really aspects of the same thing—space-time. There's a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels the speed limit through empty space.

Special Relativity also says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won't notice this effect until you return to those stationary peo...

Towards the improvement of science in Kenya

At the basic level, we all envisage a transformation from a backward, superstition-ridden to a progressive society using science and technology as instruments of social change. After 55 years, one expects tremendous physical growth in the scientific community in Kenya. However, in the spheres of social behaviour, scientific attitude is at a discount. In the case of national commitment to the development of science and technology, it is a paradoxical situation.
Since Independence, Kenya has achieved a fairly stable social and political set up. Kenya has taken giant steps forward in industrialization, agriculture, science and education, but in almost every field she has achieved only a lopsided progress with the benefits of progress rarely even trickling down to the masses. A great majority of children remain illiterate and find no exposure to even the rudimentary benefits of science. Even more distressing is that those who benefit from “progress” have little thought for the rest. There is a total lack of accountability among Kenyan Scientists in the present day set-up. The reasons are not difficult to discern.

Education is to learn the techniques to be applied in practical life rather than memorizing the formulae and long complex mathematical equations. The fault in today’s education system is that the student do work of computers as well as of a human. Hence affecting their educational carrier and grades.
In past, before giving a task to an employ there were training seasons to make the employs able to operate the machines. Later on that process become schooling resulting the present education system. In past there were not such efficient computers to work and hence human have to work more but now the course is has been changed completely due to modern technology. But unfortunately we did not changed that old system of education.

Besides having modern technologies to store the formulae, students are compelled to rote that complex formulae which should not be done. We should teach the students that how these formulae can be applied and what is the technique of this process not to use them like a hard drive of a computer.

Although the popularity of bitcoin has grown over the eight years it has been in existence, still, there are a lot of misunderstanding about what it really is and how it is transacted. This lack of knowledge has led to some people relating it to Ponzi and Pyramid schemes, while others regard it as a mysterious currency for a secret society.
However, a deeper analysis of the foundations and the operations of bitcoin reveal that the above fears are far-fetched and that bitcoin is actually a very important and timely innovation in the financial sector.

Bitcoin represents a technology where the value comes from the fact that the whole world recognizes that there’s a finite amount,” says Lee. “It’s a scarce digital asset.” Only 21 million tokens will ever exist.

Seismic Methods

by Joshua Oyeshola O.
Seismic methods are the most commonly conducted geophysical surveys for engineering investigations. Seismic refraction provides engineers and geologists with the most basic of geologic data via simple procedures with common equipment.
Any mechanical vibration is initiated by a source and travels to the location where the vibration is noted. These vibrations are seismic waves. The vibration is merely a change in the stress state due to a disturbance. The vibration emanates in all directions that support displacement. The vibration readily passes from one medium to another and from solids to liquids or gasses and in reverse. A vacuum cannot support mechanical vibratory waves, while electromagnetic waves can be transmitted through a vacuum. The direction of travel is called the ray, ray vector, or ray path. Since a source produces motion in all directions the locus of first disturbances will form a spherical shell or wave front in a uniform material. There are two major classes of seismic waves: body waves, which pass through the volume of a material; and, surface...

Anxiety in a Nutshell

Since creation human beings have been given a whole set of emotions and feelings. Disregarding whether the feeling is bad or good has its own reason and design. In an article published by Barbara L. Fredrickson titled “The Role of Positive Emotions in Positive Psychology. The Broaden-and-Build Theory of Positive Emotions”, there is a report on detailed research into the roles and effects of positive emotions.
However, setting aside the positive feelings which make us more spiritually alive, it is important note that such negative feelings as fear, panic, pain, etc. have their functions as well. One of the most basic imperatives they serve is protection and the instinct for self-preservation. However, it is no less evident that if an individual becomes overly obsessed by one of those negative emotions, the flow of life, as well as all vital activities, may be in jeopardy.

One of these negative feelings is anxiety. Basically, anxiety is a completely normal feeling which we experience from time to time. To some extent, this may be helpful since it keeps us “awake” and stimulated.

Internet Governance in Kenya

The term ‘Internet governance’ is used in international discourse to describe a wide variety of issues, which includes: Internet-specific technical issues, which are largely determined by Internet professionals working within Internet specialist fora (such as, at global level, ICANN, the IETF and W3C).
Issues concerned with the relationship between the Internet and its underpinning infrastructure, which are largely determined by businesses and regulatory agencies within the telecommunications sector; and issues of wider public policy which are substantially impacted by the Internet but which are primarily governed by national and local agencies that are explicitly concerned with those other domains (such as education ministries or the police) and which see themselves as lying outside the communications sector.

In practice, most of the issues with which Internet governance is concerned have both technical and public policy dimensions, and involve both decision-makers who work primarily within the Internet environment and those who are primarily concerned with public policy domains.
