Why Go Green This Diwali

THIS DIWALI - DON'T BURN CRACKERS, IN FACT BURN THE TROUBLES THAT SPOILS OUR ENVIRONMENT 

When we talk of "DIWALI", the first thing that comes to our mind is light, crackers, fun and joy with family and friends. But, the biggest thing (in fact evil) ignored by everyone is "POLLUTION." Chandigarh University requests you all to show that-- "YOU REALLY CARE." Let us all celebrate Green Diwali and fill our homes with Lights and Prayers, instead of with Fumes and Crackers.



Smart Ways to Celebrate Green Diwali

The festival of lights - Diwali - celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Celebrate this Diwali by keeping in mind an important cause of saving our universe.  So instead of polluting the atmosphere with fireworks, let’s celebrate a safe and environment friendly 'Green Diwali'.

Opt for Diyas instead of Electric Lights
Do not use electric lights to brighten your home. Instead, choose for diyas and candles. Electric lights consume a vast amount of power and the effects of it will be felt in the long run. Otherwise use LED lights as they use 80% lesser electricity than the regular ones.


Cut Down on Crackers 
Although Eco-friendly crackers have hit the Indian market big time and are certainly less polluting than others, this Diwali give the fireworks a complete miss with other fun options.

Use Natural Colours
In previous times, rangolis were made to feed the birds. This Diwali, celebrate this Diwali by making your rangoli with spices and other food items.

For Example:-

Use rice powder for white colour.
Use Pulses or turmeric for Yellow colour.
Use Cloves or cinnamon for Brown colour.
Use Cardamom or fennel for Green colour.
Use Dried chilly or even kumkum for Red colour.

Use Natural Flowers
Express your nature love this Diwali by investing in natural flowers instead of artificial ones. Natural flowers add a freshness to the surroundings with their fragrance.

Personalize your Gifts
Choose environment-friendly and healthy herbal gifts items this Diwali for gift options. You can choose from hand-made candles, lampshades, organic gift-baskets, gourmet coffees etc.

Reutilize your Old Stuff
Diwali is to give away your old stuff like clothes, shoes, etc to the less privileged ones. Rather than letting your old items sit idle, have them donate.

Why Facebook Employees Work On 2G Connections On Tuesdays

Why Facebook Employees Work On 2G Connections On Tuesdays

Facebook has been constantly working to improve the overall browsing experience of the social platform on the slower Internet connections. Earlier this month, the company has updated its News Feed stories, making the experience on 2G connections better.


Now, Facebook has announced launch of an internal initiative named "2G Tuesdays" that will slow down the speed of internet connections used by their employees, making them better understand the problems related to using of social platform on the slower internet connections prevalent in the emerging market. While announcing the initiative, Product Manager Chris Marra has explained in detail the whole idea behind 2G Tuesdays.

"People are coming online at a fast rate in emerging markets. In most cases, they are doing so on mobile via 2G connections. But on a typical 2G network, it can take several minutes to download a webpage. That doesn't make for a great experience when sharing content with friends and family.

To build for a global audience like ours, we know that we need to design features that work seamlessly even on a 2G network," Marra said.

Under the 2G Tuesdays, the employees will intentionally have to use the slow internet connection for the social platform and other related apps. Particularly, they have the option to opt-in for a slow Internet connection for an hour. The entire initiative is taken to better address the issues in existing and future builds.

Detailing the entire concept, Tom Alison, Director of Engineering (Facebook), told Business Insider, "For that next hour, their experience on Facebook will be very much like the experience that millions of people around the world have on Facebook on a 2G connection. They're going to see the places that we need to improve our product, but they're also going to see the places where we have made a lot of progress."

Facebook is continuously working to improve the user experience and has already highlighted some of innovative technologies like a system that allows the app to work out according to the users' internet connection and then shows News Feed stories accordingly (avoiding videos if a connection is slow) for instance.

Google's Artificial Intelligence Will Answer Your Emails Soon

Reverting to each email whether important or not is really a time consuming task. To abolish this issue, Google unveiled an innovative technology of 'Automated Reply' for its users.


The new tool aims to write artificially intelligent responses to your emails and is a part advanced Google's Inbox app. This conspicuous feature is an incredible example of Google's effort to become a true personal assistant by handling the tasks as typically handled by humans. RankBrain, Google's acknowledged artificial intelligence smart system was based on determining the pecking order in its influential internet search results.

The new "Smart Reply" system from Google is built on a system of neural networks. It identifies the incoming emails merit quick responses and subsequently figures out the appropriate wording for response. It provides up to three choices before the message is sent. The selected response then helps Google's computers to learn which ones work best.

The feature is expected to be more popular among those who check emails on smartphones equipped with small and touch-screen keyboards. This feature is available for the businesses that pay for Google's suite of applications designed for work and free version users as well. The company will unveil the system for the public soon.
