Past & Future of Humans !!

Sapiens & Homo Deus – By Yuval Noah Harari.

These Two Books,Had been  on my mind since the beginning of 2017 .And Just when the 1st Quarter of 2018 comes to an End. I did finish my Journey of a The Brief History of HumanKind and A Brief History of tomorrow.It was A wonderful tedious read. Yuval Harari Tells us some  things  that we might already be aware about and  tell us  things which we might be completely unaware of, Since our Media personalities must have never spoken about these issues.

Facts such as the Chinese exchanging rice production with weapons that resulted in one of the most deadliest famine in the history in 1958.

6 Million people in France suffer from nutritional security.that means these   people  do not have asses to the  nutrional food, in order to be able to live a healthy and active life.

Sapiens is a Book that gets you thinking about so much,Even after you are done reading there are so many questions you still want to know about, even though you know a lot more about Humankind after reading the  book then  you would have known.

Phara phrasing some quotes from “Sapiens”

Our language evolved as a way of gossiping.”

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

This is the essence of the Agricultural Revolution: the ability to keep more people alive under worse conditions.” 

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

Evolution has made Homo sapiens, like other social mammals, a xenophobic creature. Sapiens instinctively divide humanity into two parts, ‘we’ and ‘they’.” 

― Yuval Noah HarariSapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

I also truly believe,Every season has a trend of similar books now being published. Ever since these two books have become a global phenomenon.You are now getting more books on similar lines being published.Making it difficult to choose which books to read next.

The Third book  coming from Yuval ’21 lessons from 21st Century’ this August 2018. A book on Issues that need to be tackled

Fake News,Terrorism and  from resilience and humility to meditation.

Yuval Noah Harari is a author worth reading.

Circle movie review !! 

“The circle “Adapted from a novel written by Dave eggers is about A tech worker Mae Holland played by Emma Watson as she joins the most powerful tech company which starts out as an incredibly rewarding experience, but as she works there longer, things start to fall apart. 

The movie follows the story of Mae Holland, a recent college graduate who lands a job at The Circle, founded by Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks) and Tom Stenton (Patton Oswalt) a powerful technology company Mae owes her job largely to her best friend Annie, one of the most influential people in the company. Mae starts out in Customer Experience , the firm’s customer service department, but quickly climbs the company ladder. From the beginning, Mae is impressed by amenities at the Circle, including access to top-notch technology, dorm-like housing, gyms, recreation activities and parties. Mae’s very first day at the Circle ends with a party where she encounters Francis, who remains a love interest throughout . Later, Mae encounters and quickly becomes romantically involved with a mysterious colleague named Kalden, even though she is unable to verify his status at the company, or even obtain his last name.As the story moves forward it unfolds to uncover an agenda that will affect the lives of all of humanity.

A futuristic story that shows the consequences of a connected world, A world where everybody knows every move about you.

We are already getting there.  the movie is thrilling enough for you asking for more,And wishing what life would be like in one of the Tech Companies.  film directed by James Ponsoldt and written by Ponsoldt. 

MB-MEDIA BYTE !!

socialmediamanagement.png
Is media responsible for shaping the society as a group and  as an individual?
Think about it? 
The media informs us of what is  happening around us,By feeding us with information which they believe might interest us.
There is so much happening around the world,In our country,State and city.That isn’t reported or becomes a eye rolling headline.
May be because,There would be limited audience,attracted to the news.It’s too good to be shared.
Since we all love to share news that have some spice in it. 
Do you  know what happened last night??
It’s not part of a growth strategy for particular beat in the state,City financially ,Economically,Socially and politically and Technologically.
Media is 
responsible for the outlook we perceive of our neighbouring country and culture.
But,More importantly The way the world perceives us as a country and fellow citizen of the country.
The Power,Withheld with journalist and media houses of telling the truth or what’s the truth happening around by balancing their view and not being biased,should be used in rather neutral way ,the  argument weighting the pros and Cons  should be left to the public to decide what they think.
Rather than harping  on  their own thinking as to what we think must have happened and which we truly believe it was.
Media needs to encourage the expression of Opinions and views one might have towards the freedom of the speech,And being the Voice of the voiceless who are waiting to be heard. 

English/Vinglish


English The language we all know is difficult to learn,English is also known as a phunny language and today even the simplest words are hard to spell correct if the autocorrect isn’t activated in your devices like the mobile fone tablet and Computer
While just browsing online the other day the house helper came up and asked me “Akhil” what’s the spelling of January. I Quickly Responded with J-A-N-U-A-R-Y.

Thought for another moment and repeated yes it’s (J-A-N-U-A-R-Y) 

But,I wasn’t still sure about the spelling as my mind did not check the correct word I Spelled out,So only when I googled I was satisfied yes the spelling was correct.

With each passing day,We are so heavily dependent on our devices that the day isn’t too far when we will google each word and write it down since our vocabulary consists of “U” 

Instead of “You” “v” instead “We” we aren’t moving ahead with our grammar rather moving backwards,going back to those historic days of the past in other words the world would be adapating to Latin English once again. 

Back to the Shakespearean times “Thou shall not pass “in English if it’s not Shakespearean. Technology is making us handicapped and we haven’t realised yet.
