  1. Google announced a bunch of new hardware and new software updates for products last night at its annual I/OI event in San Francisco. The search engine giant announced the Pixel 3a, The Nest Hub and upcoming Android Q features. Having said that, hardware products are refreshed each year and Google announced something more important than any average person would expect. Google researched are working to train its already competent speech recognition system to understand people with speech impairments. It's a very basic thing nobody would have thought to explore via technology but Google is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve this feat. It's called Project Euphoria and we got to see a preview of what it can possibly do to help people with speech impairments. © Google Having a family member who suffers from multiple sclerosis, Project Euphoria evoked an emotion that not many people can comprehend. Google is currently working with people who have neurological conditions including ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis so that AI can better understand speech patterns. Even though it's in very early stages, we got to see how Project Euphoria can transcribe speech better to help people with speak impairment communicate. © Google There are various ways for people to communicate, for example, transcribing is just one of the ways for someone to communicate. People can even use a keyboard to type out a response or even send commands via Google Assistant without ever speaking. This can be fired up with just a button that connects to Google Assistant. © Google In order to improve speech recognition and prediction, Google is asking everyone from around the world to submit voice samples. This data will be used to improve algorithms that are used by the speech recognition software. “Fundamental AI research which enables new products for people with disabilities is an important way we drive our mission forward,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai onstage. “This will ultimately result in products that work better for all of us. It's the perfect example of what we mean by building a more helpful Google for everyone.” Why Is Project Euphoria Important? © Google Well for the simple reason that it will make the world a more inclusive place. The ability for people suffering from speech impairment to communicate with family members, friends and other people with similar diseases has far more social implications than you can imagine. Disabled people will be able to communicate emotions like laughter, despair, happiness, and even anger that was not possible earlier. It will also benefit people with hearing impairments as they can simply read the transcribed text for communication. This in turn not only makes the lives of disabled people easier, making it more inclusive. It makes people with speech and hearing impairments get more familiar with emotions, feel less conscious about communicating in public and above all else, express feelings that disabled people couldn't do effectively before. To know more about Google's efforts and Project Euphoria, you can watch a short video below that will give you a better idea.
  2. The Pulwama terror attack has been the focal point of all discussions lately, and it is good to see the entire nation joining hands to stand against the perpetrators in its aftermath. Indians from all walks of life have stepped forward to lend a helping hand to the martyrs' families in any way they can. The much-deserved attention, aid and prayers being sent their way is proof that India cannot and will not forget the supreme sacrifice that our soldiers and their families have made for the country and its safety. © Twitter Furthermore, we cannot disregard the sadness and grief that the Indians living outside the country are also sharing at this trying moment. Many NRIs have come forward on social media to express their sadness and anger against the terrorists, and their cowardly tactics to break India's spirit. One such New York-based 26-year-old NRI Vivek Patel deserves a special mention, because not only did he take to social media to condemn the Pulwama attack, but he also raised donations of over 6 crore rupees for the martyred soldiers' kin. © Instagram A Stevens Institute of Technology graduate, Vivek is originally from Vadodara in Gujarat, who was aggrieved by the attack and the devastation it caused to the martyrs' families. He wished to help them in some way and decided to donate through Bharat Ke Veer. But when he realised the initiative does not accept international cards, and the website would even go down due to excessive traffic, he decided to try another alternative. View this post on Instagram Too Strong with all your love and support ðð¼ $700,000 for the families of our 'Shahid's' #pulwamaattack #crpfjawans #crpfindia A post shared by Vivek Patel (@ivivekpatel) on Feb 17, 2019 at 7:22pm PST Still high from his recent viewing of 'Uri', his passion to help drove him to start his own fundraiser on Facebook with a target of $5,00,000. However, as of today, he has managed to exceed the target and raised 858,924 USD within six days with the help of 22,456 people! Vivek has also reached out to the Twitter handles of Bharat Ke Veer, Akshay Kumar, PM Modi, Sushma Swaraj, the Indian Army and others, to ensure that the collected funds can be handed over to the appropriate authority and disbursed to the martyrs' families following all the required protocols. @akshaykumar @adgpi @PMOIndia @narendramodi — Vivek Patel (@ivivekpatel08) February 16, 2019 He has even been in touch with Indian authorities in New York who are guiding Vivek with the best and the safest ways of transferring the funds. Vivek's efforts are commendable and inspiring and we hope he manages to find a way to successfully send across the funds and help the martyred soldiers' families like he set out to.
  3. The current, dilapidated state of the environment across the globe is no recent news. Our planet has been struggling to keep up with human exploitation being meted out to it over the last two decades, and thus, the recent environmental upheaval and deterioration have forced the world to stop and acknowledge its wrong moves. © Twitter India has been steadily moving in the direction to revive our environment through small steps and seems like all the conscious efforts are slowly bearing results, and they have not escaped the knowledge of the United Nations, because Prime Minister Narendra Modi was just awarded UN's Champions of the Earth honour for India's efforts towards saving the environment. The award was jointly presented to PM Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron for their pioneering work in championing the International Solar Alliance, under the Policy Leadership category. © Twitter After receiving the award, PM Modi hailed every Indian as an active participant in the road to change, because it was the collective effort that helped India in moving forward towards the direction of climate justice. He said that farmers and indigenous communities in India are the real winners of this award, and that India is constantly trying to chart its way towards utilising smarter technology. © Twitter India and its leaders have set an example for the world to follow and we couldn't be more proud to have gotten this far. However, it must be remembered that it is only the first of many such wins that we must aim to score. Environmental consciousness is still something that most Indians need to be sensitized about, to achieve the larger goal of a clean and healthy planet Earth.
  4. One of the most neglected factors when it comes to making progress in terms of fitness that people ignore is stress. Many a times, people who struggle with their fitness goals are going through some sort of stress in their life. Most people make the mistake of ignoring this factor but once you start managing stress better, other things start falling into place more easily. How Stress Works © Pixabay Trying to make progress in your fitness levels while being chronically stressed is like pushing your motorbike to the place that you want to ride it to. You might reach there but it would be a hell lot harder than if you would have ridden it. The reason behind it is that your body's sympathetic nervous system is stuck in "on" mode. It's like your body's smoke alarm is constantly going off which basically makes it's very hard for you to focus on anything and it depletes your will as well. The Peace Killing Hormone Is Friends With Stress Being stressed also makes your body produce a hormone called cortisol which has been linked to triggering cravings for comfort foods and eventually, food binges. Stress also depletes the energy you use to exert self-control. For example, if you are having a bad day at the office and someone offers you a piece of cake, you'll find it a lot harder to not eat it. Our impulse control takes a hit when we feel distressed, so we look for ways to feel better and that piece of cake looks like a very good alternative. How To Tackle Stress 1) The first and the foremost thing that you should do is that you should admit that you are stressed out. Only then you will look for a remedy to your problem. 2) Once, that is out of the picture, you should scale back a little. May be cut down on the number of sessions you work out every week and start dedicating your time towards an activity that you enjoy doing. This will help alleviate the stress of trying to do too much at once. 3) If you are trying to lose weight and the weight on the scale is stuck, remember, weight is just a number. Giving it too much importance can be stressful. There are many more factors to consider when it comes to tracking “fat loss” like taking your measurement, taking photos of yourself regularly, and looking at how your clothes fit you, etc. © Thinkstock 4) You should also look at adding activities which can relax you mentally and physically like yoga and meditation. These activities only take a few minutes of your time rather than hours and can go a long way de-stressing you. Taking care of yourself and it does not only include fitness and nutrition, take up a hobby or do an activity that you like doing, as doing things that you like reduces stress and keeps you active which in turn helps you live a happy life along with a healthy one.
