Today i.e. 15th February, It is going to be a historic day and a very proud moment for every Indian as Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is going to launch record 104 satellites today in a single mission from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh by Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) C-37.
Try to watch it live as this kind of proud moment do not knock our door every day to make us feel proud of being an INDIAN!
The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) scripted history again by launching a record 104 satellites from seven different countries in a single mission on Wednesday.
The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) carrying the 104 satellites lifted off from the Sriharikota launch pad in Andhra Pradesh at 9.28 am today. The figure surpasses ISRO’s personal best of sending up 20 satellites in one go. Till now, Russia held the record of launching the highest number of satellites (37) in a single mission in 2014.
Why is the launch significant for India?
India smashes all the previous records by sending the highest number of satellites to space in one mission.
The PSLV-C37 rocket is carrying an India Cartosat-2 series satellite that will be used for producing high-resolution images of the Indian landmass. It also carried two other Indian nano satellites — INS-1A and INS-1B.
The satellites belonging to international customers are being launched as part of the arrangement by Antrix Corporation Ltd (ANTRIX) the commercial arm of the ISRO.
The primary satellite of the mission is the Cartosat-2. Images sent by this satellite will be used coastal land use and regulation, road network monitoring, distribution of water and creation of land use maps, among others. The Cartosat-2 Series has a mission life of five years.
Innovation giants Microsoft, Amazon and Expedia have come in support for a claim documented by the condition of Washington testing President Donald Trump’s official request on migration. Both Amazon and Expedia have each documented assertions in a government court in Washington. Microsoft, then again, has expressed that it would “be cheerful to affirm promote if necessary”.
The announcements plot how every innovation organization is influenced by Trump’s official request, which hinders the passage of settlers, transcendently from seven Muslim nations (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Sudan) for 90 days and displaced people for 120 days.

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan was one of the shining lights of Pakistan, a Qawwali Shahehshah whose talent was heralded both locally and globally. To celebrate the legend that still lives 19 years on, Coke Studio presents
Afreen Afreen, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Momina Mustehsan, Episode 2, Coke Studio 9
Music Directed by Faakhir Mehmood
Produced by Strings
The beautifully crafted ‘Afreen Afreen’ sung two decades ago by the legendry, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan still holds the strength to serenade the audience with its poetic and soothing sensibilities. The reformation of the track on Coke Studio – arranged by Faakhir Mehmood and performed by maestro Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and debutant, Momina Mustehsan – transforms the Qawwali seamlessly into an unplugged track. Within the genre, the atmosphere of the song remains ambient and acoustic, as the bare minimum elements give room to Rahat’s majestic vocals to improvise the mastery he possesses. Momina enters the song as she punctuates the additional melody with her laid-back effortless velvety vocals. Towards the end, the track is perfectly complimented with the incredible drum roll and a hyper groove as the traditional ‘Afreen Afreen’ chants are delivered with heartfelt emotion and melodic panache.
Before travelling all over the world. Lot of Indians seem to forget that what we seek abroad, we can find as easily in our own country. So here are a few places you should know and visit in India before you visit their counterparts abroad.
So before travelling to world visit….
World’s richest woman Gina Rinehart is enduring a media firestorm over an article in which she takes the “jealous” middle class to task for “drinking, or smoking and socializing” rather than working to earn their own fortune.
What if she has a point?
Steve Siebold, author of “How Rich People Think,” spent nearly three decades interviewing millionaires around the world to find out what separates them from everyone else. It had little to do with money itself, he told Business Insider. It was about their mentality. “[The middle class] tells people to be happy with what they have,” he said. “And on the whole, most people are steeped in fear when it comes to money.”
“The average person has been brainwashed to believe rich people are lucky or dishonest,” Siebold writes. That’s why there’s a certain shame that comes along with “getting rich” in lower-income communities. “The world class knows that while having money doesn’t guarantee happiness, it does make your life easier and more enjoyable.”
“The rich go out there and try to make themselves happy. They don’t try to pretend to save the world,” Siebold told Business Insider. The problem is that middle class people see that as a negative––and it’s keeping them poor, he writes. “If you’re not taking care of you, you’re not in a position to help anyone else. You can’t give what you don’t have.”
“While the masses are waiting to pick the right numbers and praying for prosperity, the great ones are solving problems,” Siebold writes. “The hero [middle class people] are waiting for may be God, government, their boss or their spouse. It’s the average person’s level of thinking that breeds this approach to life and living while the clock keeps ticking away.”
“Many world-class performers have little formal education, and have amassed their wealth through the acquisition and subsequent sale of specific knowledge,” he writes. “Meanwhile, the masses are convinced that master’s degrees and doctorates are the way to wealth, mostly because they are trapped in the linear line of thought that holds them back from higher levels of consciousness…The wealthy aren’t interested in the means, only the end.”
“Self-made millionaires get rich because they’re willing to bet on themselves and project their dreams, goals and ideas into an unknown future,” Siebold writes. “People who believe their best days are behind them rarely get rich, and often struggle with unhappiness and depression.”
“An ordinarily smart, well-educated and otherwise successful person can be instantly transformed into a fear-based, scarcity driven thinker whose greatest financial aspiration is to retire comfortably,” he writes. “The world class sees money for what it is and what it’s not, through the eyes of logic. The great ones know money is a critical tool that presents options and opportunities.”
“To the average person, it looks like the rich are working all the time,” Siebold says. “But one of the smartest strategies of the world class is doing what they love and finding a way to get paid for it.”On the other hand, middle class take jobs they don’t enjoy “because they need the money and they’ve been trained in school and conditioned by society to live in a linear thinking world that equates earning money with physical or mental effort.”
“Psychologists and other mental health experts often advise people to set low expectations for their life to ensure they are not disappointed,” Siebold writes. “No one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations.”
“That’s why people like Donald Trump go from millionaire to nine billion dollars in debt and come back richer than ever,” he writes. “While the masses are fixated on the doing and the immediate results of their actions, the great ones are learning and growing from every experience, whether it’s a success or a failure, knowing their true reward is becoming a human success machine that eventually produces outstanding results.”
Linear thought might tell people to make money in order to earn more, but Siebold says the rich aren’t afraid to fund their future from other people’s pockets.
“Rich people know not being solvent enough to personally afford something is not relevant. The real question is, ‘Is this worth buying, investing in, or pursuing?’” he writes.
Investing successfully in the stock market isn’t just about a fancy math formula. “The rich know that the primary emotions that drive financial markets are fear and greed, and they factor this into all trades and trends they observe,” Siebold writes. “This knowledge of human nature and its overlapping impact on trading give them strategic advantage in building greater wealth through leverage.”
“Here’s how to live below your means and tap into the secret wealthy people have used for centuries: Get rich so you can afford to,” he writes. “The rich live below their means, not because they’re so savvy, but because they make so much money that they can afford to live like royalty while still having a king’s ransom socked away for the future.”
Rich parents teach their kids from an early age about the world of “haves” and “have-nots,” Siebold says. Even he admits many people have argued that he’s supporting the idea of elitism. He disagrees. “[People] say parents are teaching their kids to look down on the masses because they’re poor. This isn’t true,” he writes. “What they’re teaching their kids is to see the world through the eyes of objective reality––the way society really is.” If children understand wealth early on, they’ll be more likely to strive for it later in life.
The reason wealthy people earn more wealth is that they’re not afraid to admit that money can solve most problems, Siebold says. “[The middle class] sees money as a never-ending necessary evil that must be endured as part of life. The world class sees money as the great liberator, and with enough of it, they are able to purchase financial peace of mind.”
While the rich don’t put much stock in furthering wealth through formal education, they appreciate the power of learning long after college is over, Siebold says. “Walk into a wealthy person’s home and one of the first things you’ll see is an extensive library of books they’ve used to educate themselves on how to become more successful,” he writes. “The middle class reads novels, tabloids and entertainment magazines.”
The negative money mentality poisoning the middle class is what keeps the rich hanging out with the rich, he says. “[Rich people] can’t afford the messages of doom and gloom,” he writes. “This is often misinterpreted by the masses as snobbery. Labeling the world class as snobs is another way the middle class finds to feel better bout themselves and their chosen path of mediocrity.”
Siebold theorizes that the wealthy focus on what they’ll gain by taking risks, rather than how to save what they have. “The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally they miss major opportunities,” he writes. “Even in the midst of a cash flow crisis, the rich reject the nickle and dime thinking of the masses. They are the masters of focusing their mental energy where it belongs: on the big money.”
“Leverage is the watchword of the rich,” Siebold writes. “Every investor loses money on occasion, but the world class knows no matter what happens, they will aways be able to earn more.”
For the most part, it takes guts to take the risks necessary to make it as a millionaire––a challenge most middle class thinkers aren’t comfortable living with. “Physical, psychological, and emotional comfort is the primary goal of the middle class mindset,” Siebold writes. World class thinkers learn early on that becoming a millionaire isn’t easy and the need for comfort can be devastating. They learn to be comfortable while operating in a state of ongoing uncertainty.”
While the middle class squabbles over the virtues of Obamacare and their company’s health plan, the super wealthy are enrolled in a super elite “boutique medical care” association, Siebold says. “They pay a substantial yearly membership fee that guarantees them 24-hour access to a private physician who only serves a small group of members,” he writes. “Some wealthy neighborhoods have implemented this strategy and even require the physician to live in the neighborhood.”
The idea the wealth must come at the expense of family time is nothing but a “cop-out”, Siebold says. “The masses have been brainwashed to believe it’s an either/or equation,” he writes. “The rich know you can have anything you want if you approach the challenge with a mindset rooted in love and abundance.”
Almost everyone who owns a computer also owns at least one website these days. Be it personal or professional. There are a number of hosting services available on the web for us to host our websites but most of them cost money. A simple and efficient way to host websites can be Google Drive. With its free storage space of up to 15 GB, you can host a fairly large website without any cost.
Note: However, Google Drive does not support web resources that make use of server-side scripting languages like PHP.
1)Create a public file folder.
3)Open the HTML file and preview it.
4) Share the URL that looks like “www.googledrive.com/host/…” from the preview window.
To create a public folder: For this, you simply need to go to folders, create a new folder, and rename it to whatever name you want. Following which, you select the checkbox next to the New folder. Click the “Sharing settings” icon. Then click “Change” and make your folder “Public on the web”.
To put files in the public folder: Click on your New folder’s title. The new folder is empty as of now. Click on “Upload Files” icon. Select the index.html or other files from you hardrive and then click on upload (Uploading via browser).
If you are using Google Drive on your desktop then simply move your folder into the Google Drive Folder.
b) If you do not start with an “index.html” file, then the site visitors will not see a website. Instead they will get a directory listing of all the folders in the website. So be sure to include it.
Opening and previewing HTML file: Click on the index.html page. Drive will open the file. Click on the “Open” button at the lower right corner of the screen.
Once you open the file select “Preview”.
Your live page should open. The URL in the address bar is your new site’s URL.
Sharing the URL: Now that you have your URL, simply share with all you know!!
And voila! Your website is live and running.
Note: If you wish to assign a custom domain to this site, note that Google Drive sadly doesn’t allow you to set the DNS values. But you can have an index page which contains a single iframe fetching content from this URL and set its width and height to 100%.
Before WhatsApp, I cannot think of any app which have served so many mobile users across the planet who could text and send files to each other with so much of ease. WhatsApp is available for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile platforms and allows you to stay in touch with almost all your friends without paying anything to your service provider (assuming most of your friends own a smartphone).
One of the biggest privileges that we need from any messaging or emailing service is whether it could let you recover any of your deleted messages. And the fact that WhatsApp lets you recover deleted messages, images and videos that have been shared does make it a pretty solid app.
I am sure that most of the WhatsApp users are not aware of the fact that this messaging service takes backup of all the shared stuff every 24 hours and it keeps the backup files intact for last 7 days. Yes, it’s true. And there is a way which would let you use those backup files to restore things.
So, below are two ways to recover lost Whatsapp data.
Method 1 This is a simple and pretty straightforward way to restore deleted WhatsApp stuff. All you need to do is uninstall the app and install it back. This would actually use all the backup files, and restore whatever it can.
Method 2 This app stores its backup files by the name, msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt. Below are the locations where you can find these backup files for respective OS:
Android: /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases/msgstore.db.crypt iOS: net.whatsapp.WhatsApp/Documents/ChatStorage.sqlite
Assuming that you have the backup file now, first thing that you need to do is launch a web service, Recover Messages which would actually get you going in this whole journey to recover stuff.
Click on the Select SQLite File, choose the backup file, click on I Accept (only after reading terms) and then on Scan button. It would take some time, depending on backup file size and your internet speed, and would list all the contents.
Now, click on the appropriate tab to recover the lost data.
After a series of failures, Facebook announced today a promising plan that will finally give it the mobile platform it’s been trying to figure out for years.
Last year, it took a shot at creating its own pseudo mobile operating system with Facebook Home, an Android app that replaced your home screen with a pretty stream of photos and updates from your Facebook feed. It was a dud.
Then there were the series of separate mobile apps like Poke, Camera, and Paper that have largely failed to resonate with people. Most seem to be happy with the regular Facebook app, Instagram, and Facebook Messenger.
But at today’s F8 developers conference, Facebook unveiled some new tools that will give Facebook a deeper level of control over your phone, no matter what kind of device you use.
The most important one is called App Link, a tool that developers can use to help their apps and websites talk to each other.
To use Facebook’s example, imagine looking up a movie review on your phone on the mobile Rotten Tomatoes site. Well, what happens if you want to use the Fandango app to buy tickets to that movie? As things stand now, you’d have to close out your browser, launch the Fandango app, and then search for the movie again. With App Link, the Rotten Tomatoes developers would be able to provide you with a link that lets you jump right into the movie’s ticket page in the Fandango app. In theory, it’s seamless.
That process is also called deep linking, and it’s been a messy problem for app developers until now. Apple, Google, and Microsoft don’t make it very easy for developers to use deep linking on their respective mobile operating systems. App Link is open for any developer to use, so over the next few months you can expect to see more and more of your apps start playing nicely with each other.
For a long time, smart mobile industry watchers have said someone needs to figure out how to become the “Google of mobile apps.” Google was able to organize the information stored in websites, but no one has nailed the process in mobile apps. It’s an important task too because mobile is the next big computing platform, but most people use apps for everything, not websites. And right now, Google, Apple, and Microsoft don’t make it very easy for apps to talk to each other cross-platform.
Facebook’s App Link does. And the implication of that means Facebook could essentially have insight into all the apps and content on your phone, not just the ones it makes. That’s incredibly valuable to Facebook (it’ll be able to gather a lot of information about the apps you use) and incredibly valuable to you (your smartphone will be a lot easier to use).
In short, Facebook now has the opportunity to make your smartphone easier to use, while still wrestling control away Apple, Google, and Microsoft.
