@nehapatel I think they'd be happy in the long run, and even happier if I share it with my students as well!
@greggr They might be a bit upset with you (or, just happy you're taking an interest in their subject, right?)
I wonder what our Chemistry teachers would think if I told them I plab to use these as a refresher?

This French City Is (Literally) Powered By Cheese.
By now, you've heard of alternative electricity sources like wind, water, and solar power, but have you ever heard of using cheese? For one French city, cheese production is responsible for a considerable amount of their electricity. But how exactly do they do it? When Albertville, a city in Beaufort's dairy manufacturing region, makes its cheese, they use special equipment to convert the whey's methane gas emissions into pure energy that can be used to power 7% of the region's electricity. According to the Smithsonian, this is enough to power roughly 1,500 of 20,000 homes. That may not sound like much, but when you consider its potential, the city might just be onto a new avenue for renewable power sources. In the picture above, you can see the Valbio power plant that produces the aforementioned 'cheese power'. While it's the largest of the company's dairy-powered energy plants (and the largest of such plant on Earth), it's not the only dairy plant around. The same company began building the generators over a decade ago and set up similar plants in Europe and Canada - with more to come! In fact, those in the States might be surprised to know that the Fage brand's Greek yogurt also plays a part in powering the region from where it's produced. When Fage is made at its Albany-based plant, the whey used is later pumped to a wastewater plant to produce energy from its fermentation. Pretty cool, huh? So I hope that all of you who decided you'd like to cut down on the dairy going into the New Year re-embrace your love for all things covered in cheese. You're doing it for the greater good of the environment. It's your personal duty to eat tons of cheese. Let me know what you think about this new, cheesy fuel source in the comments below.

We Have Forgotten How To Learn With Purpose.
What do you think of when you think of learning? Education? Perfect grades? You think success. And it makes sense. People who work hard, who are smart, who do great in school usually go on to become very successful people. And we all think of the same word when we hear successful right... That's right, money. But the problem is, we have forgotten about the beauty of learning, that lesson going in one ear and out the other. And without knowing how to learn, how can you possibly be prepared for the twists and turns of life ? The point of learning isn't to be better then everyone else. Learning isn't to make you wealthy or to climb one rug higher at your job. It's that kind of reasoning that pushes kids away from school. The point of learning is to maintain your dreams, adjust your expectations, adapt to situations and accomplish everything you ever wanted to do, without feeling regret about any of it. I'm reading a book about an astronaut, it's non fiction and the strangest memoir I have ever read. And he said the one reason he loved his job for 20 years was because he never let his love of being an astronaut hinder on weather or not he actually went into space. Sounds crazy right? But it makes sense. He loves space, loves figuring out how things fly and loves learning everything he can about how to be the best astronaut he can be. He did his part, and love every second of the journey. The getting into space part has too many variables out of his control, so why think of it as anything other then a perk? There have, after all, been amazing astronauts who haven't went into space. And it's that attitude that reminds us that learning isn't to only accomplish one goal, it's to prepare yourself for anything, this way you will always find success. So I think it's time we trust the process. We embrace learning not to move up the ladder. a passion for learning, for genuine curiosity will make us into a better person, even if it outwardly effects nothing but our attitude. We need to remember that societies version of "success" and our version of learning doesn't always see eye to eye. So embrace all knowledge, you never know how far it will get you to shooting for the moon. I mean hey, will preparing for one dream you might accidentally discover another along the way! The universe is pretty crazy like that. You live and you learn.
The Class of 2016: This Year's Funniest Graduation Caps
It's that time of year again - time for the senior classmen (and classwomen!) to say their goodbyes and celebrate their accomplishments as they finally receive their diplomas. Let's admit it. Graduation ceremonies, while understandably important, can get a little dull. There's a whole lot of speeches, a whole lot of sitting, and that obligatory watching-every-single-student-walk part. However, grads have gotten creative over the years, keeping things interesting with all sorts of gags - the simplest being the funny designs they put on their graduation caps! Graduation cap humor definitely reflects the times. Check out some of the funniest caps of the graduation season thus far, and then let me know: Are these SO 2016 or what?! "M-Morty, this is - belch - the first day of the r-rest of your life." Shout-out to all those cat ladies gettin' degrees to support their fur babies. Check out Sponge Bob Square Cap over here. This will forever be my favorite quote from 'The Office'. Because Lisa Simpson should be all of our education #goals. He-Man, you the real (heavily bedazzled) MVP. "I solemnly swear I am up to gettin' paid." You can practically hear the mic drop after reading this one. +1 BRIGHT FUTURE! So which one of these were your favorite? What would your graduation cap look like? Let me know in the comments below! (And for more cool and creative caps, check out @HairConfetti's Disney-Inspired Graduation Caps card too!)
Computer programming language
The computer programming language is a set of detailed instruction for a digital computer. And these instruction can be directly executed. And these codes are made to fullfill the desired aim of the programmer and with the help of the language computer devices get direction and for doing the task. We have known such language as machine language. There are so many languages made of computer platform by which we perform several tasks. Although there are many computer languages, relatively few are widely used. Machine and assembly languages are known as low level in which programmers need to manage all the computer’s idiosyncratic feature of the data storage and operation. But apart from this in the high-level language, the programmer doesn't need to worry about such feature and this language provide a notation that can be easily written and read by the programmers. You can know more about this topic by following assignment help. And you can resolve all your queries related to this topic. Types of languages Machine and assembly languages Machine language comprises of the numeric codes for the activities that a specific for a computer that can execute straightforwardly. The codes are series of 1s, or two or a binary digits ("bits"). Which can be used for frequently conversation both from and to hexa decimal. Machine language guidelines ordinarily utilize a few bits to speak to activities, for example, addition. Machine language is slightly hard to read and write since it doesn't look like traditional scientific documentation or human language. It consists of some code and instruction which follows the mathematical computation by achieving the desired goal Assembly language is lit bit hard and one level above the machine language. It uses short mnemonic codes which are specially meant for instruction and allow the programmer to provide a name for the block of the memory which hold the data. Algorithmic languages Algorithmic is intended to express scientific or mathematical calculations. They can express arithmetic operations in documentation like science and permit the utilization of subprograms that package generally utilized activities for reuse. They were the primary high-level language. Well, the computer programming languages are not just limited to these two from of language. these two from of language are just basic information of the computer programming language and there are a lot of programming languages such as phyton, c++, Java and many more. With the help of these languages, we create a set of protocol and instruction by which we perform several tasks.

Five Revelations From the Near-Perfect 'Breaking Bad' Finale
I decided to post this card based on @LauraFisher amazing card on Which TV Finale Disappointed You The Most? At first, I thought I would make a list of my favourite TV finales, but decided to go a bit deeper into Breaking Bad final, which in my case was amazing. I am not one of those super hardcore breaking bad fans, but I truly like the finale. Breaking Bad premiered its first episode on AMC in January 2008. Five years, five seasons and 62 episodes later, one of the greatest television dramas of all time came to an end as Vince Gilligan's landmark series took its final, bloody bow. In a TV landscape that has, in recent years, found it difficult to satisfyingly wrap up beloved shows in a way that hits the right emotional notes while also tying up loose ends, Breaking Bad's final episode may prove to be one of the most fulfilling and well-made farewells ever. And while we're sure to keep "Felina" on our DVRs for repeated close inspection of the episode over the next few weeks, here are a few quick takeaways. Music, Once Again, Tells the Story Breaking Bad's final moments come courtesy of Badfinger's song "Baby Blue," from their 1971 album Straight Up, and it's easy to imagine Gilligan sitting at his desk while conceiving his hit series and sticking a Post-It Note on the wall with the title of this tune in bold marker. The song's lyrics fit Walter White's journey (and its ultimate conclusion) nearly perfectly: "Guess I got what I deserve . . . / That special love I have for you / My baby blue." It's also worth noting the Marty Robbins song that plays near the beginning of the episode while Walter is stuck inside the snow-covered car he's stealing. While seemingly entombed by snow, cold breath streaming from his mouth like his soul escaping from his body, Walt opens the glove box and pulls out a Marty Robbins cassette. Once he finds the keys and gets the car started, Robbins' song "El Paso" starts playing on the stereo. Here, again, Gilligan lets the music tell Walt's story: "Maybe tomorrow / A bullet may find me. / Tonight nothing's worse than this / Pain in my heart." This is Walter White's Episode We get to visit with nearly every remaining major player in the Breaking Bad universe during the finale, but make no mistake about it: "Felina" is Walter White's episode. Skyler, Flynn, Todd and Jesse all had big (mostly devastating) moments in the penultimate episode "Granite State," and Uncle Jack and his crew got theirs in "Ozymandias." The series finale, as it rightfully should, belongs to Walter White. It's his story to finish and, through him, we get to witness the tormenting and use of his nemeses (Gretchen and Elliot), the delivery of the truth that will finally let his wife move on with her life, and the destruction of his enemies (Lydia, Todd, Uncle Jack and the rest of his gang). Jesse gets his moment to shine near the episode's conclusion, but the series ends right where it was meant to end: focused solely on Walter White. Breaking Bad Learned from Other Series Finales One of the things that have made many recent series finales so divisive is their inability to tie up loose ends, answer questions and provide closure while also delivering a deeply moving, emotional conclusion. For every fan out there that loves the mystery and intrigue of the controversial endings of Lost and The Sopranos, there are just as many (if not more) folks who cried foul because they didn't get the answers they wanted. Breaking Bad's finale pulled in nearly every net the show had cast during its five-season run. Walt's family will get his money. Gretchen and Elliot get their comeuppance (in the words of Walter White: "This is where you get to make it right."). Badger and Skinny Pete are happy. We know where the ricin capsule went. We know what Walt needed that enormous gun for. Walt finally admits the truth: that he did it all for himself, not his family. Jesse gets to kill Todd. Jesse lives. Walt dies. All of the series' big questions were answered and that makes for a very satisfying way to end a show's run. If there are a few threads left dangling, they're minor (What happens to Brock, for instance, now that Andrea is gone? Does Jesse go find him?). Unless, of course, you're Huell and you're still hanging out in that safe house wondering what the hell is going on. What Does Jesse Have Left? That extremely cathartic moment when Jesse Pinkman speeds through the gates, alive, and begins his primal scream that's a mixture of happiness, sadness, frustration, relief and elation is so incredibly telling of the character's newfound freedom. Sure, he's made it out alive. He's got his life. But what else does Pinkman have left? He has no money. His girlfriend is dead. He's been beaten both physically and psychologically, and he's a shell of the human being he was once was. Yes, Jesse got his long-awaited retribution against his former teacher when he refused to kill him even though that's what Walt wanted. Jesse is going to live, but at what cost? Maybe he'll find Brock and raise him so the kid has the life that Jesse never had. Maybe he'll meet up with Badger and Skinny Pete, or maybe he'll make that trip to Alaska after all, erasing any evidence of the life he's left behind. Who knows? Walter White Finally Accepted His Fate Breaking Bad has always been about Walter White fighting for his life. He started by fighting cancer and moved on to fighting people like Gus Fring and Uncle Jack, but no matter what he's always been fighting. On top of that, Walt was constantly lying, either to himself or to someone else. "Felina" finally put a stop to that. Walt may have come up with a plan to see certain things through in this final episode (the money, the ricin, the Nazis, etc.), but he knew all along that this was a suicide mission. Walter White didn't, for a minute, expect to make it out alive. He had finally accepted his fate. "I did it for me," he told Skyler in their final meeting. "I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really . . . I was alive." For the first time, Walt was able to admit what we all knew all along: that his meth business (and all the various criminal activity that came along with it) was for his own benefit. Cooking meth transformed him into a superhero kingpin named Heisenberg. Meth, though he never used it in the traditional sense of the word, was Walter White's drug of choice, and it killed him just like it does your common junkie. He died alone, with nothing and no one left to care about him, and surrounded by nothing but the tools that got him high.
Are you disheartened with your GATE scores- Don't worry these are some options you can explore!
GATE is considered as an esteemed All India Examination conducted jointly by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Indian Institute of Science on behalf of the National Coordination Board. It tests the technical knowledge of students in numerous undergraduate subjects of engineering. All students who can qualify for the test are eligible to get admissions in various engineering universities. But, what about the students who don't achieve a qualified score? If 'you're one of those, don't be disappointed. There are still multiple options to explore that can productively help you shape your career. The points mentioned below are some options that can help you achieve your goal: NITS and IITs You can still make it through these institutions by doing the following measures: Opt for an interdisciplinary course after Bachelors Most of the courses are made available to students who have graduated from any branch of engineering. Some examples include Aerospace Engineering, Geo-Informatics, M Tech in Energy Sciences, and Natural Resources. Pursuing these type of courses is worthy as they are highly relevant in today's world due to the increase in demand for professionals who can think creatively. The GATE score to qualify for these courses is generally low, usually varies from 400-750. Try for M Tech in new NITs and IITs As reported by the Ministry of Human Resources and Development, graduates who pursue M Tech in these institutions earn a stipend of approx Rs.12,400 per month. Although the job opportunities are not many, you can avail a degree from a well-known institute. Pursue MS in NITs and IITs You can take admission in three-year research-based programs if you are interested in this field. As admission takes place twice a year, the entries are less competitive and reachable. Enroll in specialized MBA in the built environment from a reputed institution Due to the rapid urbanization and increasing advancements in technology, the potential of the built environment industry is massive. Doing a specialized MBA in fields like Quantity Surveying, Real Estate, and Construction Project Management will be favorable . These programs will help you to improve your technical knowledge and present you with additional relevant skills that are demanded by the industry, which will train you for the future-oriented technological and managerial job role that will fast-track your growth. In India, the RICS School of Built Environment (RICS SBE) is the only institution that provides built environment MBA programs. Their MBA in construction project management course is quite popular among students. Supported by the professionals of the industry, the institution has strong ties with leading Indian and International firms that offer assured job opportunities. Pursue a Research Fellowship or PhD Some NITs and IITs offer Ph.D. programs. These programs can opt independently by research scholars or as a part of a dual degree with an M.Tech. This is a feasible option for many especially the ones who did not score well in GATE but want to pursue a research career. Although, these institutes do not give any placement guarantees but help in expanding knowledge. On the other hand, you can pursue an integrated Ph.D. program in the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). These are some of the well-structured programs that include stipend as well. Nothing can stop you from living a high-yielding career if your passions and interests are up to the mark. Think, evaluate, and choose the right option.

How To Learn A New Language At Home
I've been trying to improve my French recently, and came across these awesome YouTubers called DamonandJo. They have self-taught themselves nearly 6 languages! I believe they speak French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, German, and of course English! You can either watch the video above (which I suggest cause they have the BEST sense of humor) or check out their tips below: 1. Follow Famous YouTubers in the language you want to learn! There are tons of youtubers in other languages, and often if they are famous enough, there will be english subtitles. Listen to them to hear real people speaking the language rather than a text book! They're usually super entertaining too so it helps :) 2. Follow those YouTubers or famous people on twitter so you see that language each day! The easiest way to get used to a foreign language is to see it all the time and this really helps! 3. Change your phone/facebook/etc language to your desired language! Since you probably already know where everything is in your phone or facebook, you wont be confused and you'll learn a ton of new vocab! 4. Listen to audio books in the language you want!!! Audible has a ton of foreign language books. Try starting with a book you already know well (like Harry Potter for me - I'm trying to read that in Korean right now...) and listen throughout your day! 5. Sign up for foreign magazines or newsletters! Or even better download their app in another language! For example, my boyfriend gets push notification from Le Monde which is a french newspaper :) Even if you only read the headline, its practice. 6. Try cooking a meal using a recipe in a different language! You start to learn that a lot of words you actually already know (for example, sauté means the same thing in french and in korean bokkeum (like bokkeumbap) means fried! so literally "fried rice!" 7. Watch TV shows in the language Duh!!!! 8. Talk to yourself and dont be afraid! Practice speaking whenever you can, even to people who are strangers! be brave! What languages are you trying to learn?!
