Water Pollution! a gift for the next generation

Water, a basic necessity to all the living things on this planet is getting contaminated day by day and the life which inhabits on it is deeply disrupted. As the earth contains 3/4 of water which is probably the biggest reason for living things to be alive and every living thing depends on this natural resource. Oceans across the world are getting polluted at a large scale and the biggest culprit behind this mess is none other than the humans themselves.
A humungous amount of plastic gets produced every year which is a big shareholder in polluting the water as loads and loads of trash gets dumped into the ocean every minute and the total amount looks even scarier, millions of tons of plastic get devoured by the oceans every year and the sea life is a major concern whether the species might exist in the years to come.
What is plastic?
Plastics are manufactured (human-made) materials, made from polymers, the molecules of plastic contains various carbon atoms, hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen filling in the spaces. A polymer is a molecule made from combining a smaller molecule called a monomer. Poly means many, so polymer is basically a combination of many monomers. Think about a house made up of many bricks each brick is the monomer and the resulting house is the polymer which is made from many bricks (monomers).
Biodegradation is a process “the metabolic breakdown of materials into smaller components by living organisms or microorganisms”.
Depending on the type of material and environment, the time to complete biodegradation may vary. Plastics takes hundreds and hundreds of years to complete its decomposition, because of the polymers that combine to make up its chemical structure.
Global Impact:
The impact of plastic pollution in the oceans varies and affect multiple domains of species whether living in the sea or not.
-Animals & Fishes:
Animals & Fishes use the sea as their home, to drink or to travel across the shores etc.
Shoals of fish die due to the cause of eating plastic thrown into the sea. It is researched that the fishes don’t die just by eating plastic but the plastic eaten is not metabolized due to the weak metabolism of these species resulting them not to eat for many days as they feel eaten all the time which starves them to death or by suffocating made by the plastic which gets stuck down the throat.
-The Food Chain:
An important aspect which keeps the world going through many phases of time, but due to mass damage to marine life by the pollution, the small breed fishes aren’t able to reproduce. Damaging the food chain in the sea as well as on land.
Low levels of BPA and PS oligomer have been proven to cause hormone disruption in animals. Scientific research has shown many results about the disruption of metabolism in human and animals.
Heart diseases, diabetes, abnormally high levels of certain liver enzymes and chemical levels in urine are affected.
-Coral Reefs:
Often associated with the term “Rainforests of the sea”. Coral reefs are sea animals which are made up of rocks and leaves. Corals are important for the sea life but the plastic pollution in the ocean destroys many corals by getting attached to the head of coral and ripping it off with huge tides.
Countries which mostly rely on their sea trade with other nations are heavily affected by the disrupted sea trade in the past decade or so.
Some facts about plastic pollution and ways to reduce it.
Facts About Water Pollution:
  • At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year.
  • There is more micro plastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way.
  • 322 million tons of plastic were produced in 2015.
  • Almost 80 percent of marine litter is plastic-based.
  • More than 50 percent of sea turtles have consumed plastic.
  • The average U.S. citizen consumes 167 plastic water bottles each year but only 25 percent of them are recycled.
  • The quatntity for plastic pollution in the ocean may increase 10 times in the next decade.
  • 15 million children under the age of five die each year because of diseases caused by drinking water.
  • Plastic waste pollutes water drastically and is causing a huge destruction in marine life and it is believed almost 100,000 sea mammals, birds and various types of fishes die each year.
  • The aquatic animals have an estimated extinction rate five times more than that of land animals.
Ways to reduce or limit the waste:
1. Stop buying disposable bottles
2. Take your own household equipment when going hiking or to seaside
3. Boycott micro beads (a form of plastic) used in various products
4. Ask marts or shops to use paper or cardboard bags
5. Reuse your products at home
6. Buy items in cardboard boxes
7. Bring your own shopping bags for shopping
Awareness & Concern:
A concern towards the marine life as some fishes and mammals may become extinct in the years to come and some are already endangered species especially the small species which face difficulty reproducing.
Strive towards protecting the water which is the core necessity required for any living thing on this planet to live, the earth which contains about 70% of water but only 2.5% of water is freshwater and the world dreads that in the coming decade large amount of population will be affected by the shortage of drinking water.

Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro – Whats New?

Xiaomi seems to be on an errand to take the cheap smartphone to a new level with their redmi 3 pro. Redmi 3 pro incorporates all the great features. However, Xiaomi added some significant upgrades to the redmi 3 pro device. In this article, we will be looking at the pros and cons, the goods and the bads, merits & demerits of Xiaomi’s redmi 3 pro in detail.


Redmi 3 pro is as same as the redmi 3, nothing really changed except for the fact that Xiaomi added a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is very accurate and it works straight from the standby mode. Once they first pick the phone up I noticed that the build quality is actually slightly better than the redmi 3. There is no major difference but the buttons are slightly better tactile feedback and there are absolutely no moving parts on the device. We have the same button placement, the same parts camera, and it is the same phone in terms of the design as the redmi 3 except for fingerprint scanner.
Coming to the hardware, redmi 3 pro has improved as compared to the redmi 3. It consists the same octa-core snapdragon 616 chip with maximum clock speeds of 1.5 gigahertz. However, now we are getting 3 gigabytes of RAM and 32 gigabytes of expandable storage via the microsd card slot.
The gaming performance is sufficing, as well as it runs perfectly on the medium graphics. There were just a few minor skipped frames on the highest graphics settings. So you can enjoy playing the most demanding games on the redmi 3 pro. It comes with mei 7.2 that has been built on top of android 5.1. Hopefully Xiaomi updates this phone to marsh mellow soon. UI is the same as on any other Xiaomi phone. As usual, no app tray and all apps rest on the redmi 3 pro’s home screen. In case you are not yet familiar with the MI UI, it has tons of features customization options that consist a wide choice of a themes, wallpapers, fonts and so on.
Also you can customize the LED light, assign different tasks, so capacitive buttons do various tweaks and personalize the phone in a lot of different ways. As far as the loudspeaker it is pretty good too. Not the best, but it has the reasonable amount of depth and it does not sound tinny like some other cheap phones.


            The 13 Megapixel camera takes pictures very fast and that is thanks to the face detection autofocus.
Also I have notices slight improvement over the redmi 3 and that’s all due to the updated software. The camera has become more consistent with daylight shots and doesn’t struggle with focusing. If you take pictures in good lighting you can achieve some great results. The images are sharp and detailed almost every time you take a photo. The only downsides are that sometimes there is a software focus on the corners. And the dynamic range was off in a few shots. The indoor and low-light shots have less detail and more noise but they are still not bad for the phone this cheap before you compare the redmi 3 pro to other devices. The video quality is good but not great, the level of detail is decent. There is some noise in the video, the footage could have more sharpness. The lack of optical image stabilization leads to a kind of shaky footage. Well I consider it is too much to ask for optical image stabilization in budget phone.


 All the connectivity options were great, everything is okay, in terms of quality. The signal reception is excellent. Aslo the Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth are working fine however, I was disappointed that the phone does not support 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi connection.

The battery life is fantastic. I could not squeeze the battery out in one day even on a heavy usage that involved gaming, installing lots of apps, watching a lot of videos, taking pictures, browsing the web and so on. I was able to achieve over seven hours of screen on time with a maximum auto brightness setting of the screen. Which means you can achieve even more impressive results if you reduce the brightness or don’t use the phone that heavily.                
Finally Xiaomi claims that the Redmi 3 pro has a fast charging feature. Xiaomi redmi 3 pro is an upgraded model over the redmi 3. It has preserved the great looks of the redmi 3 and it even spars a better build quality. Right now the phone feels more solid, in the hand. Also the addition of a fingerprint scanner which is by the way pass inaccurate is a great feature to have in a compact phone.

UI Display

You may not see a major difference in terms of the UI or gaming performance with the additional 1 giga of RAM or more storage space. But, these specs make the redmi 3 pro more solid and future-proof device. The daylight image quality seems to have become more consistent and that is thanks to the software optimization. However, don’t expect any seller results in low-light scenarios. Some might agree some might not, but if you ask me I would have loved to see backlit capacitive buttons on the pro model.
Also while the 720 p display is pretty good and spectacular. The 1080p panel would have better justified the pro moniker.


All in all the Xiaomi Redmi 3 pro is a very solid device and very hard to beat in this price range. It brought some welcome features and slight improvements over the redmi 3 and it is highly recommended to buy it if youre in the market of great affordable smartphones.

Will Facebook step into Crypto-World?

In the past few years, you would have realized everybody’s looking to get their hands dirty with the cryptocurrency. In our blogs prior to this, we have discussed cryptocurrency, pros and cons of cryptocurrency. But now we have something else to discuss.  We are all aware of the fact how good Mark Zuckerberg is to the community. Since he is always keen to bring new things on display, and is an technology enthusiast. Rumors are Facebook CEO is considering to step into and make his own mark in the crypto world.
Not only that, the CEO of biggest Social Media Networking Website (Facebook) also had positive words over the impact the Bitcoin will be making in the near future. According to him, future business and other global problems could be solved through the cryptocurrency (acting as a key to the lock).
Recently, he posted on his own profile of Facebook, naming the cryptocurrency technology to be one among the most interesting questions of the day. And also claims he is looking further, to study and understand the technology as well as know the cons and pros.
Mark Zuckerberg even emphasized on the fact that the use of cryptocurrency will help in the elimination of fake news. People also think, Zuckerberg is trying to catch up with the competitors Alibaba and WeChat that have mobile payments available. Taking Facebook to a different usage level for business organizations.

The Question: Will Facebook have its own Cryptocurrency?

Mark Zuckerberg has not kept it a secret that Facebook Co-founder is a cryptocurrency fanatic. Which baffled most of the minds, into raising one question. That is, “will the Facebook have its own Cryptocurrency?
Here we will be discussing that will that come into existence or if it should. & for that we have delved around the internet, learning cryptocurrency & merging it with the social media.
Let the fact alone, that a platform as powerfully enormous as Facebook having cryptocurrency or linked with a cryptocurrency will definitely have its potential.

What will Facebook need to do?

What are the odds that Facebook will face is another thing to look out for. Nothing is so easy, and with the cryptocurrency being a newly introduced form of currency, there are some aspects of digital money transfer still unknown to us. What will Facebook require to do? You ask. Well the answer to this is, at first a huge sum of investments is required to be invested in the regards to understanding the blockchain (how it functions, how it is developed). So that they can figure out a way to integrate blockchain into their massive organization.

Facebook digital Currency Impact?

Facebook entering into the crypto world, will be a huge boost to this young and fresh technology. Thus, it can inspire others and motivate others in jumping into the world of cryptocurrency. Allowing them to invest and adapt to this technology of the future, globally. Keeping in mind Facebook has monthly 2 billion active users, which will be a game-changer for the reach of Facebook’s digital currency.


Mark Zuckerberg is always keen on understanding the newer things, to solve the basic puzzles of human life that baffle daily life. And to make it easier he is keen in bringing out new ideas, and investing on them, and shaping them into life. But the endeavor in crypto world, can be a huge step forward for not just Facebook & its users, but also the Crypto world. Giving cryptocurrency the vast exposure to masses will be ideal for the both societies. But till now its only in the news, and we can’t really ascertain that to be happening. In case, if it’s the plan of Facebook, then we will surely love to have Facebook’s digital currency. 

Interesting Facts About Cryptocurrency

These days the hottest topic is regarding the cryptocurrency. BitCoin, Ethereum and many other cryptocurrencies are present now. Investing them is the investments of future. There are several articles coming out every day, people becoming rich, as the prices go higher. Cryptocurrency is destined to change everything, as technology again and again evolves, with the fundamental principle of changing the things we used to know.
Everybody would be asking “what is a cryptocurrency”, but what isn’t a cryptocurrency? It isn’t something that we have been used to of having in our wallets. Or keeping a track of the bank accounts. Credit cards, cash are all the items representing currency. No central bank stands behind any of the cryptocurrencies, nor by governments, giving birth to the fact “cryptocurrencies are decentralized”. They follow certain rules, just the rules exist outside the traditional financial system.

Interesting Facts:

We have sketched some interesting facts about the digital currencies. And they are enlisted below as:
·         Volatile
·         Blockchain
·         Blockchain advantages
·         Miners
·         Banned
·         Limited knowledge
·         Decentralization


One thing everybody would have noticed is that the digital currencies are volatile. That can be seen easily and noticed by anyone who’s following the cryptocurrencies. Since the virtual currency’s trading takes place on the numerous cryptocurrency exchanges     as compared with the central exchange. Which leads to increasing the volatility of the digital currency aka cryptocurrency.


When you meet someone online, how do you make sure, they are who they are writing to you to be? Or buy coffee, labelled with fair trade but what ascertains its origin? To assure, about the questions, you require system where records could be stored. Facts can be verified by anyone, and security guaranteed. So no one could cheat the system by editing records. Such systems are on the horizon & software that powers them is called the Blockchain. Blockchains store information across the network of personal computers. Bitcoin is founded upon the infrastructure of Blockchain. It is a digital and a decentralized ledger recording payment and transactions in the safe. 

Blockchain advantages:

There are various advantages that are associated with Blockchain. Not just the decentralization, as minors work entire 24 hours of each day a week verifying and confirming the transactions. With no middleman involved the costs of transactions would actually decline with the blockchain.
Another merit of Blockchain is the transparency & the control that it significantly offers the users with. Instead of the cryptocurrency be controlled and handled by a third-party, the community members are the ones who think together and find a solution for the future development. Though Blockchain has its very own drawbacks. To begin with, it is still under development or not yet fully developed. Also no guarantees of a quicker transaction with blockchain is guaranteed as far as yet.


Miners play a protagonist, by that I mean, whenever a cryptocurrency transaction is carried out. The transactions require a verification, which is the task upon the shoulders of miners. Mining isn’t the laborious one. All the miners have to do is solve complex computations, using high-powered computers to verify & log the transactions in a competitive way. The first to do the solution is rewarded in the form of cryptocurrency coins.
Demerit: Hardware & Electricity charges will be enormous. But also rewarding in handsome coins.   


To your surprise, cryptocurrencies are banned from access in most of the countries. They might be talked about here and there, but not everywhere. Since they aren’t regulated, decentralized, few of the countries have put up a ban on the cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency trading, virtual currency payments, buying things in digital currency is regarded as illegal in half dozen countries. The list of cryptocurrency banned countries is expected to grow in numbers.

Limited Knowledge:

Even though cryptocurrency is one of the most talked things globally, people still seem to lack knowledge about it, how it works, what is its use. According to a poll 80% nearly knew about the Bitcoins but only 30-40% knew about the Ethereum. People are still seemingly becoming accustomed to cryptocurrency and learn the digital currency.


Decentralization is one of the major attributes about the cryptocurrency that has been gaining public attention. & also a reason why people are coming towards the digital currency. No central hubs where the information is stored, no data centers, increasing the security.
Blockchain technology is so secure and reliable you can trust it blindfolded.
