Some Interesting Facts about Bill Gates – The former world’s richest Billionaires

William Henry Gates III, a software executive, an American entrepreneur, philanthropist, the chairman of Microsoft and…… The world’s third richest man (as of 18/04/2008). Here are some attention-grabbing fact of Bill Gates other than the awesome Microsoft.
  • Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND, that’s about US$20 Million a DAY and US$7.8 Billion a YEAR!
  • If he drops a thousand dollar, he won’t even bother to pick it up bcoz the 4 seconds he picks it, he would’ve already earned it back.
  • The US national debt is about 5.62 trillion, if Bill Gates were to pay the debt by himself; he will finish it in less then 10 years.
  • He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth but still be left with US$5 Million for his pocket money.
  • Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete in US. If he doesn’t drink and eat, and keeps up his annual income i.e. US$30 Million, he’ll have to wait for 277 years to become as rich as Bill Gates is now.
  • If Bill Gates was a country, he would be the 37th richest country on earth.
  • If you change all of Bill Gate’s money to US$1 notes, you can make a road from earth to moon, 14 times back and forth. But you have to make that road non-stop for 1,400 years, and use a total of 713 BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money.
  • Bill Gates is 40 this year. If we assume that he will live for another 35 years, he has to spend US$6.78 Million per day to finish all his money before he can go to heaven.
  • Last but not the least: If Microsoft Windows’ users can claim US$1 for every time their computers hang because of Microsoft Windows, Bill Gates will be bankrupt in 3 years !!!!!!! !!!!

What is the “World’s Largest Digging Machine”?…….

A big man, Powerful giant, an Extreme Machine, One of the wonderful engineering Creations which led to make construction field more and more simpler, I am talking about the largest digging machine on the planet.




This giant has been built by a German manufacturer named “Krupp” and It took almost 5 years to design the machine and manufacture with a cost of more than $100 million.



The World’s Largest Digging Machine is almost 95 meters high and 215 meters long which is just like almost 2.5 football fields in length with 45,500 tons in Weight. Maximum digging speed is 10 meters per minute and it can move more than 76,000 cubic meters of coal, rock, and earth per day.




The man power, and the cost in the construction field have been able to really reduce with a high efficiency, due to these kind of top-class, massive machines. This digging machine is currently using, mainly in field work at coal mines and rocky arias.

What is Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)?

“Computer Vision Syndrome” has been one of the major side effects of using computers and CVS is generally used for the vision related symptoms caused due to spending more than two hours on a computer each day. Headaches, dry or aching or tired or burning eyes, general eyestrain, focusing difficulties, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity, neck and shoulder pain are the well-known symptoms of CVS.

Causes

Mainly due to decreasing of the blinking rate of eye while working significant effective number of hours with computer screens leads to this phenomenon for anyone irrespective of the age. According to the Medical confirmations, the normal blinking rate in human eyes is 16-20 per minute. It has shown that the blink rate would be caused to decrease to as low as 6-8 blinks per minute for persons dealing with the computer screens regularly.

Computer monitor makes all the graphics and pictures using a large number of prime elements called “pixels”. The video display terminal (VDT) basically the monitor of the computer totally consists of those pixels and different combinations of them would draw these visible pictures on the VDT. Each pixel is brightest in the center, with the brightness decreasing toward the outer edges. This makes very much difficult to maintain the eye focus on them just because the human focusing system would not well response to those kinds of effects. This is the main reason for tiredness of the naked eye.

This leads to dry eyes and eye- tiredness as near focusing effort would strain on ciliary muscles of the eye frequently. After specific time duration, some would suffer with inability of properly focusing on near objects too which can be seen in people aged around 30-40 yrs , leading to a decrease in the accommodative focusing mechanisms of the eye.

Solutions and Suggestions

Look away from the computer screen to reduce the eye-strain hourly. One of the catch phrases is the “20-20-20 rule”……. every 20 minutes, focus the eyes on an object 20 feet (6 meters) away for 20 seconds. This basically gives a convenient distance & time-frame for a person to follow the advice from the ophthalmologist. Otherwise, the patient is advised to close his eyes (which has a similar effect) for 20 seconds, at least every half hour or even more frequently.

Glare screen filters or anti-reflective coated (AR Coated) lenses of glasses may be helpful for some to control this matter but it will not solve the computer vision problems because they only affect glare from the computer screen.

Proper lighting can reduce eyestrain and glare. Glare is created by glare on walls and other surfaces, reflections from the computer screen, bright light coming in from outside, and bright light inside. To decrease light and reflections from external light, close drapes or blinds. When using computers, lighting should be about half of that used in most offices.

Place your monitor directly in front of you, not off to one side. It should be about 20 to 26 inches away from you. Make sure your monitor is just right for you, not too high and not too low. And keep your arms in parallel to the floor when you type. Finally, maintain good posture at your desk like, keep your back straight and your shoulders back. Adjust the contrast between the background and the characters on the screen by adjusting the brightness on your computer screen.

Finally………

This has been happening everywhere to each person to whome dealing with computers overall the world with or without the prior knowledge, hence please make sure to protect your eyes just because, your eyes is absolutely required to continue your life properly than the your computer. 🙂

and……. BE HEALTHFUL & ENJOY A HAPPY COMPUTING.. ….

The history of today – [1st of April] — The Fool’s day —

The 1st of April, the 91st day in each year (92nd in a leap year) has been celebrated, noted and basically reserved for really amusing and funny, hoaxes and particle jokes among the people around the world irrespective of any separations. Although it has not been found an exact reason or a founder for this special day, it has already been really famous by now. The Fool’s day was originally named as “All Fool’s day” and it had begun to appear in the Europe around the late middle ages. “All fool’s day” was basically a flock calibration where the presences of participants were very low. Anyhow this special day has been much-celebrated in some countries and named as a holiday by now.
When considering the origin of this strange festival, there are many numbers of legends and myths associated with. Mainly there are some special Ancient, Medieval, Mythological, traditional stories and roots which are in a form of considerable state. There are some interesting historical explernations about incidents happened on Roman emperor’s era regarding the origin of this. But among those, the Calendar-Change theory has been the highly accepted fact that describes the origin of the Fool’s day on April 1st .

In 1582, a new calendar named “Gregorian Calendar” was ordered to be used by “Pope Gregory XIII” replacing the old Julian calendar. France was the very first country which experienced to this Calendar-Change. According to the newest Calendar, the New Year day had been shifted to the January 1st from the end of March where it was on the Julian calendar. But it says that many people did not accept the new date of the New Year and some did not learn about it properly even in order to celebrate it. Therefore, those kind of people continued celebrating the New Year during the week in which bounded by May 25th and April 1st as usual, with various sort of jokes and funny stuff played around.

But the other people who already adjusted their selves onwards to the new Calendar, began to make fun of these traditionalists who were following the old schedule, by sending them “fool’s errands” or trying to fool them into funny activities etc. Eventually, this particular activity got bounded around April 1st and gradually the Fool’s day festival got rapidly spread over in the European countries such as Germany, Scotland, England etc.

Now it has been a well-known festival around the word and…… oh ma goshhhh….. today is also a 1st of April. But please consider that this article is also not another April-1st-joke :))
Try to make fool all the ones around you only for today, Without you.. :)) and Just enjoy the day.
