How Or Not to be - "Productive"

PRODUCTIVITY Don’t make it a form of self sabotage                                      - Sanika Deshmukh XthB Being productive is something which many desire to have as a quality. Currently, “productivity” is used as a way of gaining attention and proving one’s own self-worth. Hundreds of people are making videos on the internet mostly with titles like - “How to be productive” “Why are you NOT productive” “Get Productive and Stop wasting Time” Well, I will be honest. Some videos DO really help by giving many tips that a person my find applicable in their own life.

They always recommend you to make to-do lists or schedule your whole day and work accordingly.  There is nothing wrong with to-do lists or scheduling eve

Some ideas on Astrophotography with a Mobile

Astrophotography is photographing objects in the night sky such as the moon, the planets, constellations etc. These objects are pretty dim, except for the moon. This presents certain challenges and therein lies the fun. Advanced amateurs often use digital cameras with manual settings to overcome these challenges. Here I am going to talk about beginners who have only a decent mobile camera to work with. I assume a minimum of 32 megapixel camera with an app allowing for manual settings for exposure, ISO, etc. And yes, this piece is for the completely uninitiated, hence the simple language. The challenges with a mobile camera Objects being dim means that they give very little light compared to daylight. Although our eyes can see them (because by some accounts, our eyes are a few hundred Gigapixel cameras) the camera sensors cannot. This often results in the object being invisible in the photograph. Objects being small makes it difficult for the sensors to pick up the light. Camera senso

How to study better

This is a brief guide for teachers planning Study skills workshops and parents who may want to help their children study better. We need to use the following resources to begin with. So please try to read carefully through them. Also, there are certain tests which are appropriate only for certain ages and which tell us where the child stands. These tests are only an indication and the child’s preferences or attitudes will change somewhat over time. SO they are not to be taken as final. You should test the child in this and use the scores to guide the child. Please note that teaching kids to learn is a highly specialized field and not the same as teaching them a subject. However, with effort every teacher can attempt to better the child’s life. Methodology Will add soon Resources What is Effective Learning? (My Presentation) The case for learning to learn for Life What is Effective Learning? Knowing Yourself What is VARK and why should teachers, parents and students know this? What are

  -Durva Waykole (std. X Abhinav Vidyalay) The beginning of the digital era has opened up a lot of opportunities nowadays. We can do mobile banking, online shopping, booking a hotel room, ordering some dinner, booking a cab, reading news, and books everything in just one click, but it has been rightly said that everything has a price, and the more you connect to digital assets the more is the chance of high risk towards your confidential and sensitive data. Now the question arises how the companies are securing this data and how they are protecting the data from this cyberattack? The answer is cyber security. What is Cybersecurity?
