A team of University of Washington has invented a method which will record a person's pulse and breathing  rate from a real-time video of their face using the camera on their smartphone or computer. The researchers presented this state-of-the-art system in December at the Neural Information Processing Systems conference.The team is now suggesting  a better system to measure these physiological signals. This system is less likely to be tripped up by several cameras, lighting conditions or facial features, such as skin color. The researchers will present these findings on  April 8 at the ACM Conference on Health, Interference, and Learning. वाशिंगटन विश्वविद्यालय द्वारा विकसित नई प्रणाली पल्स, श्वास दर को मापेगीवाशिंगटन विश्वविद्यालय की टीम द्वारा विकसित की गई नई विधि पल्स, श्वास दर को मापने के लिए डिवाइस कैमरों का उपयोग…

" If we notice, the current methodology of using chalk and duster has been affecting the lives of students and teachers to a great extent. But, if this is replaced by whiteboards as an alternative, it's going to be a remarkable initiative. Let's discuss, why is it better to use a whiteboard over chalkboards :- •  The material which is put on the chalkboards to provide it with a black or green pigmentation are impermanent and eventually fades away. • While erasing the chalkboard small clouds of chalk dust are produced which remain suspended in air. This dust causes many discomfort if anyone in the…

“For a small child there is no division between playing and learning; between the things he or she does ‘just for fun’ and things that are ‘educational.’ The child learns while living and any part of living that is enjoyable is also play.” ~ Penelope Leach Early childhood basically defines the period from the birth till 8 years of age and this period is remarkable for the brain development. During this period, the environment and the surroundings that children live in, influences them to a great extent.

Good nutrition allows children to survive, grow, develop, learn, play, participate and contribute—while malnutrition robs children of their futures and leaves young lives hanging in the balance.Sufficient nutrition is very essential for the total human development. Malnutrition in India is mainly caused by economic inequality. Malnutrition is not only caused by the deficiency of nutrition but also of over nutrition. It also refers to the imbalances in the intake of protein, energy and other nutrients. Individual level of health is important but at the same time community level health is also perceived to be very essential. Health of an individual is determined by the interplay of various factors like the social, economical, political dietary and lifestyle.
