Understanding Lunar Eclipse Super Blue Blood Full Moon

Understanding Lunar Eclipse Super Blue Blood Full Moon
31st of January 2018 has given, the Earthlings on certain parts of the planet, a rare combination of four celestial events all happening simultaneously, viz, a total lunar eclipse, a super moon, a blood moon and a blue moon. Except for the fact that it is not a super huge moon partially blue and partially red in colour. And nope, it is not bad at all to witness this even with naked eyes. This even does not indicate anything inauspicious. All it gives you i...

Educator vs Teacher vs Tutor vs Instructor vs Trainer vs Coach vs Communicator

Educator vs Teacher vs Tutor vs Instructor vs Trainer vs Coach vs Communicator
This is a post that tries to illuminate the minds that are confused with the words Educator, Teacher, Tutor, Instructor, Trainer, Coach and Communicator, as I once was. The only way to make their meanings louder and clearer is by putting them together in a single post. If you are in a hurry to watch the entire sport and are willing to walk away with only the outcome without having to understand the research behind it, you may directly jump to the conclusio

Researcher vs Scientist vs Engineer vs Technologist

Researcher vs Scientist vs Engineer vs Technologist
Are you a Researcher or a Scientist or an Engineer or a Technologist? As it happens, to most people involved in any of the above mentioned professions, academic or industrial, this question comes at least once in a lifetime, where they try to understand the semantics of these three terms, in order to put themselves in their rightful category. And so it happens that they, most frequently than not, run into a hazier mindset led by their encountered referenc

Verum Absque Terminos (truth is limitless)
Have you ever felt this strong urge to identify and cling unfailingly to that single most important thing in your life to which you can attach your entire existence without having to look back?

The Dream Mission to Deep Space

The Dream Mission to Deep Space
When I woke up from this dream, it seemed like just another interesting dream of mine, a fantasy maybe, that has too little or no significance to my past reality. However, the fact that I had to write this dream for someone who is interested to understand me, made me rethink this dream to recreate an accurate and vivid representation of it. And then it occurred to me, that just like every dream, this dream too has deep meaning to my mind and all the stat...
