The title character of Ray Bradbury’s book The Illustrated Man is covered with moving, shifting tattoos. If you look at them, they will tell you a story.
New LED tattoos from the University of Pennsylvania could make the Illustrated Man real (minus the creepy stories, of course). Researchers there are developing silicon-and-silk implantable devices which sit under the skin like a tattoo. Already implanted into mice, these tattoos could carry LEDs, turning your skin into a screen
The silk substrate onto which the chips are mounted eventually dissolves away inside the body, leaving just the electronics behind. The silicon chips are around the length of a small grain of rice — about 1 millimeter, and just 250 nanometers thick. The sheet of silk will keep them in place, molding to the shape of the skin when saline solution is added.
These displays could be hooked up to any kind of electronic device, also inside the body. Medical uses are being explored, from blood-sugar sensors that show their readouts on the skin itself to neurodevices that tie into the body’s nervous system — hooking chips to particular nerves to control a prosthetic hand, for example.
Chips are already used inside bodies, most notably the tiny RFID tags injected into pets. But the flexible nature of these “tattooed” circuits means they can move elastically with the body, sitting in places.

Today at college,(In Java Lab) I leaned back in my chair and it made a farting noise. I casually did it again so everybody would know it was the chair. ;-)

Today I was looking a fish supplies on the Pet Smart Website. There was a category for "Aquarium Furniture" .

I was disappointed to learn it was furniture to put aquariums on top of. Not little chairs or tables for your fish. :(

There is a risk in going into business with friends -- if the business relationship sours, the friendship almost certainly will end.

But what if you find yourself becoming friends with employees you hire in your business?

I have observed that young entrepreneurs becoming buddies with their employees and wasn't so sure that was a good practice.

In a small business, becoming friends with employees is a natural occurrence. A small group of people working closely toward common goals often develops friendships with each other. You all suffer together through the trials and travails of start-up and early growth, which can create strong bonds.

We know that facing common adversity is powerful for building teams. Such camaraderie can be a critical element in building a strong culture in the business and in creating loyalty among your staff.

But, it is important for the entrepreneur to keep certain boundaries as such friendships develop.

No matter how strong the team becomes, the entrepreneur is the one person who is ultimately responsible for the outcomes of the business -- the one who personally has everything on the line.

Hard decisions will have to be made at crucial points in the growth of the business. And no matter how hard it may be, the entrepreneur must make the best decision for the future of the business even if it may not be in the best personal interest of all the individual employees.

Be the 'shock absorber'

As the business owner, there are certain things you should never share with your employees.

If they have become your friends, you may feel that you can share your deepest fears about the business with them. This is a mistake.

First and foremost you are their leader. It is your job to communicate confidence and commitment to the vision, even when times are tough.

You need to be what I call their "emotional shock absorber." Your confidence and commitment will be what keeps them on task and doing what needs to get done to survive rocky times.

If you share your fears and doubts, as you might with a good friend, you run a real risk of creating a climate of hopelessness and defeat in your company.

At the end of our discussion my advice to the student entrepreneur was that it was OK to become friendly with employees, but to maintain certain limits. It is fine to socialize, but remember that you are the owner and the boss 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It is not unlike the parent/child relationship as the child moves into early adulthood. While parent and child find their relationship can evolve more and more into one of friendship, there remains a certain boundary based on their familial relationship.

Friendships with your employees need to also have these boundaries.

This is a Sweet Rib Tickling, Short Story I Came Across Somewhere, Just wanted to share, Hope you will like it :-)

" Revenue Canada decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the Revenue Canada office.

The auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.

The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure Revenue Canada finds that believable.'

I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration? '

The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'

Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.'

The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor's jaw drops.

Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.'

Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.

The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks 'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk.

The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win.

But Grandpa's own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.

'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.

'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and piss all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it!'

Don't Mess with Old People!! "

After thinking for a while I’ve come to know that unknowingly or unintentionally we all are the part of rat race, with one common motive of winning the race and I am surprised to see that this thing starts right from the age of 7 or 8, when our parents says, look, the other girl/boy is better than you(in studies, sports, dance etc… ) you try hard to prove, to be in competition…

We grow up wondering whether ever we’ll be there at the top someday ?In college somebody else takes your trophy in a typical filmy way and you just end up playing the sidie(dancing behind the hero/heroins)… …

When you enter into professional life (with whatever amount of courage left inside) your colleagues and most importantly the BOSS waits for you( like a hungry lion waits for a poor goat) with the butcher’s knife(though invisible)in hand…

Finally one fine day you come to know that there’s a word called blogging where you can be just yourself and lo, here too you are worried for the comments, just don’t wanna be out of the competition…right?

What’s the solution??now please don’t say that you care a damn about this competition, because I know that all of us secretly dream of winning this race…don’t we??

Option trading in India is nothing but official form of pure Gambling for those who are not expert of volatile Indian stock market.
If you do normal trading in stocks, there will be a chance that your stocks will perform better in near future even if it may be at worst condition now. If you invest in option trading and market goes opposite of your expectation, you will loose completely your investment.
investors are not much mature, they just pull out all invested money with huge loss on a single bad news. Most of the Indian investors don’t have patience. This is why BSE and NSE are much more volatile compared to foreign stock exchange.
All mathematical models and software to predict the future trend of Indian stock market BSE and NSE failed most of the time to predict correctly. To avoid huge loss in trading, don’t invest your money at option trading in INDIA.

Just as a part of routine Regular Browsing, Dunno what exactly Strike into my mind..Perhaps, to check out my existence in this world, At least Digital if not Physical, I gave my Own Name as the Search Tag, The Phrase which I gave was "vikas mishra cybernazi" .

Guess what..? To all my astonishment, the search results which appeared on the Page 1,2,3 were all mine,in a row!! Listing out most of my web Traces, which mostly Included Social Networking Sites and My Personnel Blogs. My shoulders brodenned as if my Photo had appeared on TIME COVERPAGE.

Looks Like Mr. Nobody Has Become Famous.. :P

Ever Since I was Introduced to Internet, One thing which always fascinated me was Social Networking, and as I matured and made my way through the Social Media, watching out for more and more people all around the globe, It is Sometime Surprising and really Heartening to know what others are thinking in the First and Second World Nations, also in the Quest of knowing the world around me in a better way, I have known about millions of new things be it in the form of an Idea , Information or a untimely joy and made some of the really good friends Online, Which I really wonder, to meet them sometime in Person, at some point in my life !!

In all, It has been a really worthwhile experience, worth every Time and Effort of investment, It has not only shaped my Inner Dimension in understanding people but also to Develop an ability to collaborate with New People and do some real work and also generate some extra bucks online.

Lately in the recent past..I have been Active on the Following Social Networks.

The Topic we chose for the prelims was " CYBERCRIME : THE COMPUTER SECURITY IS NOT ADEQUATE " , I spoke for the Topic (Being Cybernazi !!) and Animesh was against it, He had a real tough time facing the jury and audience during the Rebuttal Round, but he was adamant and stubborn enough to keep up his point !!, and I too kind of Backed him up, and we made it to Finals which was held today, some Six Teams were selected. And this time the topic was " RECESSION: THE BEST TIME TO START AN EXPLOSIVE INDUSTRY " and we were supposed to Speak “ FOR” it , Although I don't read lot of Newspapers and also, Not a Economic Buff so I had a Hard Time Initially Thanks to Animesh and Abhilash, who although being the Underdogs of their Elective: Business Studies, did come up with many beautiful points and which I was explained in a matter of some 30 Minutes, in the Backdrop of One of the Most Strict Staff of Our CSE Department, I was really at some point amazed at their deep Understanding of many Delicate Concepts which I was Completely Alien to, also I discovered Economics is Really a Interesting Subject If dealt with Proper Mentor.

Anyway it went well, with lot of Glitches, Loops and Oops, But thanks to our Opponents who were really smart at some Point which made the Event a Memorable One!!
