Hello Readers, thank you so much for being with Technifity! Technifity was a dream venture for all of us — with a vision to share knowledge and facts with the entire world! We started of on 22 April, and have got really positive response since. Though we aren’t able to post on a much Frequent Basis due to our High School Study Schedule, we try our best to keep our readers informed, and have successfully received more than 400 minutes of reading in the past month.
Here is April and May 2018 in review.
The Fun They Had” is a science fiction story by American writer Isaac Asimov. It first appeared in a children’s newspaper in 1951. And rather sadly, even NCERT has included the story in the English Curriculum — which means that even I need to read it.
Today, as we look back, we notice that this impeccable world, this impeccable life had a start. For a butter fly, its a Caterpillar. For a Caterpillar, it is an egg. For an egg it was another Butter fly. Then evolution enters the scene, and everything is traced back to Simple bacteria. Even they had a start, Scientists aren’t sure how.
Technology is everything we, humans, have around us — buildings, gadgets, vehicles, fashion, fast food — everything! It is everything and everywhere Humans have applied science — and their brains. In my opinion, Technology can never be actually downgraded. Every time there’s a new innovative idea or an invention, we see improvement in what we have already.
The beginning of the universe, or the big bang (as some suggest, though not some, to be honest), was an event approximately 13.772 billion years ago. Trust me, that’s a really, really long time. And it is the rule of life — “The only constant thing is change” ~Heraclitus. And so did it happen. Billions of trillions of celestial objects were formed. And during all this, the Sun was no exception.
Living in 21st century, where technology has become a universal safety blanket, it becomes really important for us to understand some integral part of this Technology. One such part is ‘Social Media’. The modern society has become more and more obsessed with technology in shape of PCs, Tablets, iPads, Smart Phones, etc. Social Media has transformed the way we interact and meet each other.
Ever wondered, why, our Periodic Table is in such Uniformity? Why is it that we have exactly ALL the elements with atomic numbers 1 to 118? Since the atomic number of an element is just the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom of that element, we can say, Why is the interval in the number of protons in successive elements in the Periodic Table ALWAYS 1?
