9 hours shift

Most of the offices trying to ripe most of the productive hours from their employees. Many among these offices are doing it by fixing the time in followed by spending at least 9 hours in the office premises. However post 9 hours, there is no guarantee that the employee will go home though. Some of the offices such as support centers does have fix in and fix out timing, however out of every 9 hours employee spent in office, his/her productive hours are always more than 8 hours, because they barely get time to have lunch or go for nature call. Maximum time, they used to have their lunch in front of their system.

On the same row, there is another category, which is getting very popular now a days, it is 9 hours office shift followed 24×7 on call support. It means, no matter where you are, you have to always be ready for your office calls and you have no choice but to pick the call and provide the solution then and there. Office will not responsible, whether you are in a function or at a funeral, you have to take the call.

In the past few years, we have noticed, so many doctors suddenly started talking about the health issues, sleeplessness, back pain, BP, sugar, heart attach etc. lots of articles are all over the newspapers, magazines and internet about raising such health issues. All are pointing these reasons for our health issues;

  • Stress
  • Eating too late in the evening
  • Poor sleep habits
  • Not sleeping on a regular schedule, due to work or travel
  • An irregular sleep schedule
  • Sleeping during the day
  • A job that involves working at night
  • Lack of exercise
  • Using electronic devices like laptops and cell phones in bed
  • Having a sleep environment with too much noise or light
  • A recent job loss
  • Excitement about an upcoming event
  • Caffeine
  • Nicotine
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Cold medicines
  • Diet pills

In most of the cases, lack of proper sleep is the main culprit and I don’t thing any office will pay for sleeping. Of course, offices does provide medical insurance, but will that enough for employees to put themselves on stack.

It’s time to think again, where are we heading to. We should recheck the facts about the growth rate of health issues instead of our financial status. As our health and mental stability is above all. Once we have it, maybe we can enjoy everything, but if we don’t, then everything is useless.

VPS – Visual Position System

GPS is a very common word now. Everyone even a kid knows about it. Anyone who is travelling or in transit may looking for the GPS signals on their smart phones. Most of the people know, that there is something which is called GPS helps them to reach to their destination. 🙂


If we go by the definition, then GPS is an abbreviation for `global positioning system’, which is a system that uses signals from satellites to find out the position of an object. Now what is satellites? And how is it sending signal to our phone? 😀 We’ll discuss sometime later on this topic.


Recently in Google IO 2018, we have learnt about the new GPS system, rather smarter GPS system, which will help us to know, where we are and where we want to go. It is basically using the phones camera and start guiding you about the right direction and location. It will identify the place you are at and will let you know if you heading to the right direction or not. Basically for me it looks like that Google has made their Lens smarter and integrated it with the maps

Visual Positioning System


Once you face the camera towards the roads and building, it will guide you, where to go from here. On the other hand the Local Guides are keep on improving the Google maps with their reviews and photos to make this VPS (Visual Positioning System) more smarter and better.


I think sooner or later, we’ll start talking and seeking about the VPS signals instead of GPS, eventually it will be GPS though. 😀

Local Guide

We are visiting so many places regularly, these visits can be personal or professional. In the past, we used to ask people who are either living at that place or had been there before, while we were planning to visit the new place.

Google Local Guide

I think for more than 5 years now, we are using the maps to get the right directions and to know more about the new places. Have we ever thought, how Google, Nokia, Apple knows about all these places and guide us? May be some of us will say, that they are using satellites and getting all the directions and pictures, well yes, I don’t deny that, but who is writing reviews and giving ratings? I am sure those are not satellites. Those must be human being. 🙂

As per Google, these humans are called Local Guides, who are uploading the images, videos and sharing the reviews about the places. In other words, the Local Guides are actually those who are along with Google helping us to reach to the place and know about the place, which is new to us or we may want to know about that place.

These Local Guides in other words are helping the Google AI to be smarter and helpful for everyone who is going to use the Google map or seeking the reviews and directions. And once we reach to the desired place, we can also share our views over the Google map along with ratings to help others to take right decision. By doing this, we’ll be also a part of the Google Helping Team.

24 hours a day

There are so much is going on around the world, every tick and every tock of the clock is bringing something new and innovative. Looks like 24 hours a day is not enough, as we are growing our productivity. Information tsunami is here.

Almost 27,831 TV channels are broadcasting round the clock. Which means 6, 67,944 hours a day and more and more channels are about to start. On the other hand 300 hours of videos are getting uploaded over YouTube at every single minute, which means 4, 32, 000 hours a day. The companies are now a days working 24×7 and still struggling with deadlines. Apart from all these, there are various personal and professional training’s going one and it’s human to learn and to watch and we want to learn most of the thing. Now the problem here is that we can spare a maximum of 12 to 14 productive hours a day for few years in our life, if we leave our social responsibilities. However the big question is do we have time? Is 24 hours a day enough for us?

I think, if we even start working with the light speed then also the day will be shorten and we’ll have to leave many things which are happening across the globe. It gets confusing, what to watch, what to do and what not to do. This is getting difficult day by day as what we like, we might not be learning that and what we are learning, we might not be liking. We are just pushing and pushing to keep ourselves busy and pretending to secure our “future”. Think again, are we really securing our future, because as any new technology comes in, old one goes out.


So what’s the conclusion then? Do we really have conclusion? I’ll leave it open, please feel free to share your thoughts.

Learning from Training

Learning is the key to success. Doesn’t matter what, where and when are you learning.

Classroom Tarining

Most of the time, due to interest or professional need, one undergoes through the desired training program. These training programs might be different from each other. The tools and technique might varies from one training session to another, however at the end of the day what matters is, was that specific training useful / helpful or was it just a paper work?

Now a days, various methods are available to make the learning program easier and impacted, so that its impression will last more. That’s the reason suddenly we are seeing lots of programs for video creation and animation are at its peak.

On the other hand classroom training is still in fashi

on and consider another effective way of learning. Do we know the reason?

I think classroom training still lasting for a while, because students are paying more attention in classroom in comparison to webinar or home learning. If we use all these animation, training videos in classroom training, in my opinion, it will have double the impact than the webinar or home learning.

To buildup student’s confidence and increase the learning impact, the classroom training should also include assignments and practical sessions. This will establish the two way communication and mutual understanding between the students and the subject, which they want to learn. It certainly will bridge the gap between the theoretical and practical knowledge.

Let’s think again and analyze ourselves about how can we learn better?

Future is here!!

Google entering in Medical arena

Google has recently took another step towards making their AI smarter and quicker. It is not only performing the action quickly but wisely as well. Like most of us has already noticed during our Video search and audio search, which Google has implemented last year, some of us are so used to about the auto suggested replies in our mail by AI that we haven’t even realized it. Take an example of Google LensAI is boon for all of us.

Google has upgraded the TPU, which gives way more speedy response. From this July on wards, every one of us will realize the smarter way of writing / responding emails via Gmail. All the current medical apps and software should start thinking about the improvement as Google has entered in this arena to save precious time of doctors and patients.

The Google assistance will now be available in six different voices and there are chances, while you ask some task to be performed by Google assistance, it may make a telephone call on your behalf to book your reservation / appointment and update you with the status.

This is the time to be a part of this Sci-Fi world. Better to buckle up and get ready!!

Watch the Google I/O for more details.
