Your parents deserves happiness

Parents are the embodiment of unselfish devotion and unwavering dedication, always putting their children first. Parents assist us in growing and becoming better versions of ourselves, but how often do we thank them for their efforts? It is not until we are older and have responsibilities that we realise how important they are in the genuine sense. If you’re seeking for a way to express gratitude, Don’t put it off any longer if you want to express your gratitude to them. National Parents’ Day is today (July 25), so go ahead and make that unique gesture.
There is no specific day to thank parents. Yes everyday we must get several reasons to thank them. But in this busy life we can manage a single day for thanking them. Every year on the fourth Sunday in July, National Parents’ Day is commemorated. It’s all the more motivation to make this a memorable occasion for our parents because it comes after Mother’s Day in May and Father’s Day in June.
If you’re one of those busy grown-ups who spends their weekends going to work and hanging out with people, make today count for your parents. Don’t forget to hug them and give them a present. Cook for them or simply have a cup of tea with them. All that matters to ageing parents is to feel needed.

You might also take some time to express your gratitude to all of the people who have played a part as a parent in your life. It might be a grandmother, an uncle, or a sibling. This Sunday, spread the message of love and care. Because they make our life complete

Anti-sex beds and distributing condoms to be a part of the change

Tokyo Olympic 2020 came up with a unique way to bring change. This year Olympic focus on health sector.
With the COVID-19 outbreak that is still looming, social isolation and cleanliness have become essential. The Tokyo Olympics 2020 organisers have gone a step further to prevent the virus’s spread and hold the quadrennial event in the safest possible manner.
As strange as it may sound, the authorities have set up a quarantine zone inside the Games village to prevent further infections- To promote the idea of social separation, the government have developed “Anti-Sex” beds.

This is an effort to keep athletes focused on their disciplines while also keeping them socially separated, in order to prevent Olympians from having sex and transmitting the new Coronavirus. The ‘Anti-Sex’ beds are said to be made of cardboard and engineered to only be able to withstand one person.
The ‘Anti-Sex’ mattresses, according to reports, are made of cardboard and are only designed to support the weight of one person. This is another opportunity for the host country, Japan, to demonstrate its commitment to renewable energy and trash recycling.

Talking about the other disease which is taken up by the authorities. The Tokyo Olympic organisers plan to provide some 150,000 condoms during next month’s Games, but athletes are being advised to take them home rather than use them in the Olympic village, where social distance laws and coronavirus prevention are major priorities. A large quantity of condoms have been distributed at the Games to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, and organisers claimed the International Olympic Committee had requested that they continue to be distributed.

It’s a kind gesture of Olympic committee to spread awareness internationally

People of different age group showing interest in space tour

The young person is coming forward to be a part of space team. An 18-year-old physics student whose father runs an investment management business is ready to take the place of a person who bid $28 million in an auction to be a part of billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin company’s maiden space tourism trip. After the auction winner, whose identity was not made public, backed out owing to undisclosed “scheduling difficulties,” Blue Origin announced on Thursday that Oliver Daemen will join the four-member all-civilian crew for Tuesday’s scheduled trip. The company’s first paying customer is Daemen.
In this team oldest person is also coming forward. According to Blue Origin, the voyage will feature the oldest person ever to fly to space, 82-year-old trailblazing female aviator Wally Funk, as well as the youngest, Daemen. Bezos and his brother Mark Bezos will be joining them for Blue Origin’s suborbital flight. Daemen is pursuing his pilot’s licence and will begin studying physics and innovation management at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands in September, according to Blue Origin. Joes Daemen, the CEO and founder of Somerset Capital Partners, is his father. According to Blue Origin, the older Daemen “bought for the seat and opted to fly Oliver.” The amount paid was not disclosed by the firm.
“Flying on New Shepard will realize a longstanding goal for Oliver, who has been captivated by space, the Moon, and rockets since he was four years old,” the firm said in a statement. Bezos is competing with billionaire competitors Richard Branson and Elon Musk to usher in a new age of commercial space travel in a tourist sector that Swiss bank UBS thinks might be worth $3 billion yearly in ten years. New Shepard is a 60-foot (18.3-meter) tall completely autonomous rocket-and-capsule combination that cannot be piloted from within the ship. The launch will take place in West Texas.

The world is heading in the direction of giving both genders an equal opportunity. Females are also producing amazing results in their fields which is causing societal transformation. We may also remark that progress toward gender equality is gradual and constant.
One such movement had been encountered a few days before. Marija Cicak, the chair umpire, made history on July 17, 2021 by becoming the first woman in 144 years to referee the men’s singles final at Wimbledon. At the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London. Marija Cicak will be the umpire for the title match between world No. 1 Novak Djokovic and Italian Matteo Berrittini. 43-year-old, Marija Cicak, has worked as an umpire at the Championships for the past 15 years and has officiated in 10 WTA Finals. She also served as an umpire for the women’s singles final at Wimbledon in 2014 and the women’s doubles final three years later. Cicak also oversaw the gold medal match in women’s singles at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Since 2012, the Croatian official has been a part of the WTA Elite Team and is a gold badge chair umpire.
This news will undoubtedly encourage more young women to make history and contribute to society’s positive transformation. Gender equality is a critical component of development, and now we have the opportunity to participate in this transformation and become what we choose.

New plant species named after Indian goddess name

India discovers new plant species in Antarctica, the species has been called Bryum bharatiensis by biologists from the Central University of Punjab. The Hindu goddess of learning, Bharati, is also the name of one of India’s Antarctic research outposts.The discovery is notable because it is the first and only plant species discovered by the Indian Antarctic Mission since 1981. The scientists discovered a kind of moss near the Indian research centre on a 2016-2017 expedition to the continent and gathered samples. After five years, experts were finally able to determine that it was a new native plant species to the area.
Prof Felix Bast, a biologist who was part of the six-month trip to the continent – the 36th by Indian scientists – found the dark green critter in January 2017 in Larsemann Hills, which overlooks the Southern Ocean. This is near Bharati, one of the world’s most distant research outposts. The premier international publication, Journal of Asia-Pacific Biodiversity, has approved the peer-reviewed manuscript detailing this discovery. To live, plants require nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, sunshine, and water. Only 1% of Antarctica is devoid of ice. Prof Bast explained, “The main challenge was how could moss thrive in this setting of rock and ice.”
This moss developed mostly in places where penguins nested in high numbers, according to the researchers. Penguin faeces contains nitrogen. In this climate, the fact that manure does not degrade helps “Prof. Bast said.
The Indian scientists spent five years decoding the plant DNA and comparing its shape to that of other plants after collecting the samples. So far, more than 100 moss species have been identified in Antartica, the world’s driest, coldest, and windiest continent.
“Greening is taking place in Antarctica. Because of the warming of the continent, many temperate species of plants that formerly could not live in this icy continent may now be found everywhere “Prof. Bast said.
“The discovery that Antarctica was greening was alarming,” said Prof Raghavendra Prasad Tiwari, vice chancellor of the Central University of Punjab and a prominent scientist. “We have no idea what lies under the huge ice sheets. It’s possible that harmful microorganisms will develop when the ice melts as a result of global warming.”
In the four decades since India established a research station on the continent, this is the first time it has found a plant species.
