Some Unforgetable Quotes On SACHIN TENDULKAR


Sachin Tendulkar has carried the burden of the nation for 21 years. It is time we carried him on our shoulders- Virat Kohli after India won the 2011 World Cup


"I have seen God, he bats at no. 4 in Tests for India"- Matthew Hayden

"There are 2 kind of batsmen in the world. One Sachin Tendulkar. Two all the others"- Andy Flower

"We did not lose to a team called India...we lost to a man called Sachin" -Mark Taylor, during the test match in Chennai (1997)

I'll be going to bed having nightmares of Sachin just running down the wicket and belting me back over the head for six. He was unstoppable. I don't think anyone, apart from Don Bradman, is in the same class as Sachin Tendulkar. He is just an amazing player- Shane Warne

I think he is marvellous. I think he will fit in whatever category of Cricket that has been played or will be played, from the first ball that has ever been bowled to the last ball that's going to be. He can play in any era and at any level. I would say he's 99.5% perfect- Viv Richards on Sachin Tendulkar

He has defined cricket in his fabulous, impeccable manner. He is to batting what Shane Warne is to bowling-Richie Benaud

If I've to bowl to Sachin, I'll bowl with my helmet on. He hits the ball so hard-Dennis Lillee

Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal- Brian Lara

Don't bowl bad balls he hits the good ones for fours-Michael Kasprowicz

Nothing bad can happen to us if we're on a plane in India with Sachin Tendulkar on it- Hashim Amla

Sachin was so focused. He never looked like getting out. He was batting with single-minded devotion. It was truly remarkable. It was a lesson- Martina Navratilova

I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to breathe the same air as you do- Shahrukh Khan

The thing I like the most about Sachin is his intensity. After being in the game for so long, he still has the same desire to do well for India in any international match. I tell you what, this man is a legend¬- Sourav Ganguly

He can play that leg glance with a walking stick also- Waqar Younis

Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt - daylight second, Brian Lara third-Shane Warne

Sachin is cricket's God- Barry Richards

Warped space-time around black holes visualized


Warped space-time around black holes visualized
For the first time, physicists have visualized what goes on during the collision of two black holes, providing insight into what one researcher calls the “stormy behavior” of space and time during such a merger. 
The findings could help researchers interpret gravitational signals from space to reconstruct the cosmic events that created them, said study researcher Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology. The study also opens up a new way to understand black holes, gravity and cosmology.

“It's as though we had only seen the surface of the ocean on a calm day,” Thorne told LiveScience. “We'd never seen the ocean in a storm, we'd never seen a breaking wave, we'd never seen water spouts … We have never before understood how warped space and time behave in a storm.”

Here's how black holes and space-time are linked: The theory of general relativity, proposed by Albert Einstein in 1915, describes how gravity affects very massive, huge things such as black holes and the universe itself.

According to this theory, gravity actually warps the fabric of space-time in such a way that massive objects bend the universe (think a Sumo wrestler on a soft mat) so that objects can't help but fall toward them. Even time can be bent by gravity, the theory goes.

In other words, researchers had a good handle on the forces created by a quietly spinning black hole. They were also able to simulate the results of black hole collisions to see what type of gravitational waves the collisions create. “What we were not able to do is go down and look at the merger itself,” Thorne said.

To visualize a black hole merger, the researchers used two concepts, one old and one new: vortex lines and tendex lines. These lines are the equivalent of the lines drawn to represent magnetic fields, said study author Robert Owen, a postdoctoral researcher in astronomy at Cornell University.

Vortex lines represent a twisting force in space-time. If you were to fall into a vortex line, your body would be wrung like a wet dish towel, Owen said. Tendex lines, which are a new concept, represent a stretching or squeezing force.

“Tendex is actually a word that we had to invent because it didn't exist before this,” Owen said.

Using supercomputers, the researchers created simulations of the vortex and tendex lines that would be created when black holes merge.

The patterns differ depending on how the merger happens, Thorne said. For example, a head-on collision of two black holes ejects doughnut-shaped vortexes from the merger. Two black holes spiraling into each other create a very different arrangement.

“This is where we see vortexes sticking out of the merged black hole that swing around the merged black hole like spiral arms of the galaxy or like water spraying out of a rotating sprinkler head,” Thorne said.

In another simulation of spinning black holes orbiting into each other, the vortexes diffused into one another, Thorne said.

The researchers are working on three follow-up studies to explore the details of the dynamics involved, Owen said. He said the research team expects that tendexes and vortexes will be used to investigate lots of situations where gravitational forces are very strong, including just after the Big Bang that may have created the universe about 13.7 billion years ago.

Whether any valuable insights will come out of the new visualization method has yet to be seen, University of Texas, Brownsville and Southmost Texas College physicist Richard Price told LiveScience. But the method has more potential than any other method he knows of, Price said.

“My initial impression (upon hearing about the research) was, Yeah. This could work,” said Price, who was not involved in the study.

“You can't calculate everything; you've got to know where to look,” Price added. “And therefore, you need to have the ability to visualize.”

The results may also help researchers understand the findings of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, or LIGO, an instrument that detects gravitational waves from space. Before, researchers knew enough about black hole collisions to figure out what sorts of waves LIGO should be looking for, Thorne said. Now, scientists can start interpreting those waves when they come in. “We want to be able to look at the shapes of the waves and be able to go back and say what was happening to produce the waves,” Thorne said.

A Black hole


What is a black hole?

This Hubble Space Telescope image contains three main features.
The outer white area is the core or centre of the galaxy NGC4261.
Inside the core there is a brown spiral-shaped disk. 

A black hole is a region of spacetime from which nothing can escape, even light.
To see why this happens, imagine throwing a tennis ball into the air. The harder you throw the tennis ball, the faster it is travelling when it leaves your hand and the higher the ball will go before turning back. If you throw it hard enough it will never return, the gravitational attraction will not be able to pull it back down. The velocity the ball must have to escape is known as the escape velocity and for the earth is about 7 miles a second.
As a body is crushed into a smaller and smaller volume, the gravitational attraction increases, and hence the escape velocity gets bigger. Things have to be thrown harder and harder to escape. Eventually a point is reached when even light, which travels at 186 thousand miles a second, is not travelling fast enough to escape. At this point, nothing can get out as nothing can travel faster than light. This is a black hole.

Do they really exist?

It is impossible to see a black hole directly because no light can escape from them; they are black. But there are good reasons to think they exist.
When a large star has burnt all its fuel it explodes into a supernova. The stuff that is left collapses down to an extremely dense object known as a neutron star. We know that these objects exist because several have been found using radio telescopes.
If the neutron star is too large, the gravitational forces overwhelm the pressure gradients and collapse cannot be halted. The neutron star continues to shrink until it finally becomes a black hole. This mass limit is only a couple of solar masses, that is about twice the mass of our sun, and so we should expect at least a few neutron stars to have this mass. (Our sun is not particularly large; in fact it is quite small.)
A supernova occurs in our galaxy once every 300 years, and in neighbouring galaxies about 500 neutron stars have been identified. Therefore we are quite confident that there should also be some black holes.Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic QuandariesAdvance Wars 2: Black Hole RisingMonster Black Holes

Indifferent Polar Poles Of Earth

Because the Arctic and Antarctic are cold, dark, and remote, we often think these two places are nearly the same. However, they are quite different. One notable difference is that polar bears live only in the Arctic, and penguins live only in the Antarctic.


Amazing set of cold snaps by award-winning Arctic photographer....



An emperor penguin chick is captured in perfect clarity as it jumps off an ice block... or perhaps it was pushed by its cheeky little friends.
This is just one of a set of stunning images from the life's work of award-winning wildlife photographer Sue Flood.
She has spent more than 20 year pursuing of the best wildlife shots - but says the polar regions of the Arctic and Antarctic remain her most special places.
And perhaps the fact that her husband, fellow freelance wildlife photographer Doug Allan, proposed while they were adrift on an Arctic ice floe has also added to the memories.

The pair travel the world for their wildlife work and Flood has worked on top BBC Nature programmes including Planet Earth and Blue Planet.
She has now put together some of her favourite images in a book.
Miss Flood said  'There are times when I question why I'm so drawn to the Poles - for instance, when camping in -40 degree temperatures, enduring the hardships of macho ice-breaker life or when my eyes won't open because my eyelashes have frozen together.
'But there is something magical about the light, the isolation and the stillness, and something inspirational about how resolute animals and people have to be to survive there.
'Yes, the Poles are cold places but they also warm the heart, as I hope my book and images show.'

Miss Flood said the book, Cold Places, was  'a record of some of the most spectacular places and memorable animals of the polar regions'.

'I fell in love with the Canadian Arctic on my first BBC filming trip there in 1998 and have since enjoyed more than 30 trips to the polar regions – working on documentaries and feature films, guiding private individuals and on expedition ships voyaging to the North Pole and south to the Antarctic Peninsula, Ross and Weddell Seas and sub-Antarctic islands.'

I’ve had some great adventures in the polar regions, including camping on the floe edge with Inuit hunters in the Canadian high-Arctic, watching polar bears hunting, diving with leopard seals in the Antarctic, working on Russian icebreakers and sailing across the Drake Passage on a very small yacht.
'I’m passionate about what I do, and I hope that this comes across in my images so that people will be inspired to want to protect the wildlife and ecosystems I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph.'

It's raining worms (click here to see full story)

Schoolchildren's lesson interrupted by creepy crawlies falling from sky

  It's raining worms: Schoolchildren's lesson interrupted by creepy crawlies falling from sky


David Crichton: The teacher collected over 100 worms after the unusual rainfall on April 1st 2011 in the noon 11:32 am.
Pupils at a Scots school had to run for cover when it started raining worms during their PE lesson.
Teacher David Crichton was leading a group of pupils playing football on an astroturf pitch at Galashiels Academy when dozens of the slimy creatures began plummeting from the sky.
The second-year boys had to abandon their lesson as the earthworms fell during the bizarre incident.
David said the children had just completed their warm up when they began to hear "soft thudding" on the ground. The class then looked to the cloudless sky and saw worms falling on to them.
The 26-year-old teacher said he was baffled by the unexplained incident. Later he and other teachers found more worms spread across a tennis court almost 100 yards away.
David said: "We went out to one of our outdoor areas - an all weather astroturf pitch.
"We were out playing football and had just done our warm up and were about to start the next part of the lesson. We started hearing this wee thudding noise on the ground. There were about 20 worms already on the ground at this point.
"Then they just kept coming down. The kids were laughing but some were covering their heads and others were running for cover for a while. They just scattered to get out of the way."
The bizarre occurrence took place at around 9.15am on Tuesday. The teacher then scooped up handfuls of the worms as proof they had landed on his class.
David said he and his colleagues eventually found around 120 worms in total after checking the artificial football pitch and tennis courts.
He added: "After it happened I counted about 60 on the multi purpose court we were on. I went in and told the other PE teachers and we went out to the tennis courts about 100 yards away. There were about 60 there on the tennis courts - so there were over 100 in total.
"Everyone was having a laugh at me about it until they went out and saw for themselves. They were joking about it - and I said 'if you don't believe me go out and have a look'. Everyone thought I was mad. They came back in and looked shocked. The boys have certainly been talking all about it since then.
"I spoke with the science department here but none of them had any explanation for it. One of them thought maybe it was a freak weather thing. But it was such a clear, calm day. And we are quite a bit away from any of the buildings so it's not like anyone could have been throwing them.”
Showers of worms falling from the heavens have been reported in the past. In 1872 worms were reported falling in Somerville, Massachusetts, in 1877 in Christiana, Norway, and in 1924 in Halmstad, Sweden.
More recently, in July 2007, a woman was crossing a road in Jennings, Louisiana, on her way to work when large clumps of tangled worms dropped down from above. That incident is believed to have been caused by freak weather over a nearby river lifting water and worms and dumping it over the road.

India Pakistan Historic Matches in World Cups


It could not get bigger than this as India set a semi-final clash with archrivals Pakistan on March 30 in Mohali.

The India-Pakistan rivalry in the World Cup is all about some high-voltage cricket and emotions running very high.

The two teams have faced each other four times in the 50-over mega-event, and each time India has finished on top. But none of the matches was smooth sailing and lived up to the hype of a classic India-Pakistan encounter. 

This was the first time when the two arch-rivals faced each other in the World Cup. Emotions were running high at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Winning the toss, India opted to bat and scored 216 runs with the help of a half-century from Sachin Tendulkar. India pulled off an easy win after Indian pacers bowled out Pakistan for 173 runs.

This match had its moment when Javed Miandad, irked by constant sledging and jeering by Indian keeper Kiran More, mimicked his antics. More was continuously appealing against Miandad and the Pakistan batsman lost his calm. There were some heated verbal exchanges between the two players but the umpires did not report the incident to the match referee since they could not understand the language of the verbal duel.


India and Pakistan were playing each other in the quarter-final, which meant the defeated team would have to go back home. Winning the toss, India posted 287 runs with Navjot Singh Sidhu making 93 runs and Ajay Jadeja scoring 45 runs.

Chasing the target, Pakistan skipper Aamer Sohail rubbed Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad the wrong way. He tried to unsettle the bowler and disturb his rhythm, a ploy that backfired. Though he scored a half-century, Pakistan needed much more from their captain. He hit Prasad for a cover boundary and pointed towards the region as if he was saying ' I'll hit you for more like these'.

With the very next delivery, Prasad avenged the humiliation. Aamer failed to read his good-length delivery that came back in and uprooted his off-stump.

On the hindsight, had Sohail just curbed his passion for a little longer, the Indo-Pak World Cup stats might just have been very different.
It was perhaps the most inappropriate time for India and Pakistan to play since the two countries were at war in Kargil. The temperature was soaring at the otherwise serene Old Trafford in Manchester.

Heavy security was deployed in the ground and by the end of the match there were three arrests, nine ejections, and one Indian tricolour burned. But the ambience that the rival fans created with flag-waving, whistle-blowing and drum-beating was awe-inspiring.

Electing to bat, India posted a total of 227 runs. Rahul Dravid and skipper Mohammad Azharuddin slammed half-centuries while Sachin Tendulkar fell short of his fifty by 5 runs.

In reply, Pakistan were bundled out for just 180 runs. Saeed Anwar started the procession on a positive note and made 36 runs. Inzamam ul Haq bettered Anwar and scored 41 but that still wasn't good enough. Venkatesh Prasad and Javagal Srinath made merry as they picked 5 and 3 wickets respectively. Their Bangalore teammate Anil Kumble took two wickets.

The arch-rivals were playing each other after a gap of three years. And the relations between the two countries had turned sour after the Kargil war. On March 1, the India-Pakistan match became the virtual final for the fans from both the sides.

Before the match, Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar sent out loud warnings to Sachin Tendulkar. When prodded for a reply, the master batsman said he would let his bat do the talking. And his bat roared in Centurion.

Needing 274 runs to win, India were off to a flying start with Sehwag and Sachin firing all cylinders. The Indian openers thrashed the high-profile Pakistan bowlers (Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar and Abdul Razzaq) all over ground. But Akhtar's nightmare came true when Sachin slashed one of his deliveries over the point region for a huge six. With that shot Sachin punctured Pakistan's confidence and paved the way for India's victory.

Though Sachin fell short of his well-deserved century by 2 runs, his knock of 98 runs off 75 balls is widely regarded as one of his best ODI innings

But this time the competition was more healthy than unusual as both the teams were in a higher team spirit than the Nation wide spirit. Dhoni proves to be yet another Indian captain to lead a victory against Pakistan in the world cup consecutively....

The dive that will never fade

India Won the World Cup Title after almost 28years which has been celebrated with a huge ceremony and  crackers almost the full saturday night which made it like the diwali.....
But one can never blame it on the people for celebrating this win as the diwali. Because this is like the LANKA WAR as in the epic - The Ramayana where After the VICTORY of Rama over Raavana, the whole army celebrated the Festival of Lights "DIWALI"...
Before the game started the fans in no vain matched this epic event with the saturday match and the Epic Just proved to be right.... India (Ram) won over Srilanka(raavanan)... Yet this is a History that will be never get faded in anyone's mind... BLEED BLUE
