From 29th March till 1st April India Fashion week is going on. So I just thought of posting this. This is not from that but it’s crazy.
Yesterday between 8pm-9pm all around many countries participated in Earth Hour. This Earth Hour is an initiative to protect our Earth from global warming. I may sound a crazy man to all you guys as I speak and post much towards environment. It may be a little same kind of stuff to you. But believe me, if there was awareness about our environment then I wouldn’t have written such post. And yes I am a crazy person.
So what was done during this Earth Hour?? There was a simple thing done. The countries which participated turned there lights off between 8pm-9pm according to their countries standard time. This really must have saved a lot of energy. Imagine what if this is done every week or may be everyday. Of course you don’t need to do this in that hour. You can do it according to your convenience.
Turn off everything for 1 hour. Those who were unable to switch their lights off were told to switch off the machines instead of keeping in standby. Keeping machines in standby is useless. I’ve seen in many offices that the PC’s are left standby for hours. Workers come and turned PC on during morning or the time day enter the office and turned it off when they live. They don’t bother if they are using it or not. They just don’t like to sit in front of switched off machine. That’s ridiculous. If all the power from stand by machines is combined it is a considerable amount of energy.
I may be talking nonsense. But it’s a request that don’t take our environment and this global warming as a nonsense.
Visit Earth Hour web page for some more details. Google also took a part in this event and turned its page black. Check here about this. There were many countries and their cities who participated. Just visit the Earth Hour website that info. Just want you guys to make a visit there.

Adobe has released its Photoshop Express web-based imaging application as a public beta. Web based application meaning you dont have to install it on your PC. Just point to the website. Photoshop Express uses much of Adobe’s image editing technology and has been re purposed as a web-based application. Users can store up to 2GB of images online for free, make edits to their photos and share them online. Photoshop Express also allows users to download and upload photos from popular social networking sites like Facebook. The application provides ’standard edits’, such as removing blemishes and red-eye, converting to black and white, cropping and resizing.
Photoshop Express also offers tricks like Pop Color which selects an object in an image, mutes the background color of the photo and allows the user to swap the object’s color so that it “jumps off the page”. Sketch effects make photos look like drawings, and a Distort feature allows users to distort facial features or objects for a comical or artistic effect.
Checkout this software during it’s beta stage.
Speed thrills but kills. Such boards are written aside roads to remind drivers about speeds. The faster Cars and Bikes and their provoking advertisements are the main cause of this. But ignoring all this speed limits are crossed. Most of the times by the youth. There are some steps taken to control this but all in vain. Speed breakers are not effective and so are the rumble strips. So just check the following innovative idea.
What an Idea….
