11 Facts About the September 27/ 28, 2015 Blood Moon Eclipse

11 Facts About the September 27/ 28, 2015 Blood Moon Eclipse

On September 28, 2015, a rare Total Lunar Eclipse of a Super Full Moon will be visible from most of North America, South America, Europe, West Asia and parts of Africa. Here are 11 facts you should know about this eclipse.

1. A Rare Eclipse of a Supermoon

The full Moon of September 27/28 is a Supermoon – the Moon will be closest to the Earth. or at its perigee, as it turns into a full Moon. A rising Super Full Moon can look larger and brighter to spectators on Earth.
Total eclipses of Super Full Moons are rare. According to NASA, they have only occurred 5 times in the 1900s – in 1910,192819461964 and 1982. After the September 27/ 28, 2015Total Lunar Eclipse, a Supermoon eclipse will not happen again for another 18 years, until October 8, 2033.

2. People in the US Will Get Front Row Seats

People in eastern and central areas of the United States and Canada will have some of the best views of the Total Lunar Eclipse on the night of September 27, 2015, weather permitting. Here, the eclipse will begin after moonrise and finish around midnight (00:00 on September 28).
Those on the West Coast will miss the beginning stages of the eclipse because they will happen before moonrise.
It will be the last Total Lunar Eclipse visible from mainland USA until January 31, 2018.

3. Late Night & Early Morning Eclipse

While North and South Americans will be able to see the eclipse after sunset on September 27, 2015, people in Africa, Europe and Middle East can view it during the early hours of September 28, before the Sun rises.

4. No Need for Eye Protection

Lunar eclipses can be spectacular and they are easy to see with the naked eye. Unlike solar eclipses, which require protective eye wear, a lunar eclipse can be viewed without specialized eye wear.

5. A Solar Eclipse Takes Place Two Weeks Before

Solar and lunar eclipses come in pairs – a lunar eclipse always takes place two weeks before or after a solar eclipse. The September 27/ 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse will be preceded by a Partial Solar Eclipse on September 13, 2015.

6. It's Part of a Lunar Tetrad

The September 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse is the fourth and final eclipse in a series of four total lunar eclipses called thelunar tetrad. The first three eclipses of the tetrad took place onApril 15, 2014October 8, 2014 and on April 4, 2015.
Notice something interesting about the dates? Each of the eclipses in the tetrad occurs about 6 months apart and have 5 full Moons between them!
Lunar tetrads can be rare in some centuries and can occur frequently in others. The 21st century will have 8 lunar tetrads, the maximum number of lunar tetrads that can occur in a century. The last time this happened was in the 9th century!
The next lunar tetrad of the 21st century will start with the April 25, 2032 Total Lunar Eclipse.

7. ...And is Being Called a Blood Moon

An eclipsed Moon can take on a reddish glow during totality
Rayleigh scattering can cause the Moon to look red during a lunar eclipse.
In recent years, the term Blood Moon has been frequently used to refer to total lunar eclipses. Some sources suggest that the term stems from the Bible. Christian pastors Mark Blitz and John Hagee claim that the eclipses of the 2014-2015 lunar tetrad fulfill a Biblical prophecy of forthcoming difficult and trying times.
Astronomers do not use Blood Moon as a scientific term. However, it is possible that the term came to describe total lunar eclipses because of the reddish color the eclipsed Moon takes on during totality. This happens because of Rayleigh scattering, the same mechanism that causes colorful sunrises and sunsets.

8. Despite Rumors, the World Will Not End

Relax! The World will not end.
The views of pastors Blitz and Hagee gathered attention in early 2014, because the eclipses in the tetrad coincide with important Jewish festivals. The eclipses in April 2014 and April 2015 occured at the same time as Passover, while the October 2014 and September 2015 eclipses occur during the Feast of Tabernacles. Some people took this coincidence as a sign of the end of times.
Others have dismissed any apocalyptic significance of the tetrad. Data of past eclipses show that at least eight lunar tetrads have coincided with Jewish holidays since the First Century.
The Jewish Calendar is a lunar calendar and Passover always occurs around a full Moon. Since a total lunar eclipse can onlyoccur on a full Moon night, it is very likely that an eclipse will take place on or near Passover.
In conclusion, scientists and astronomers have found no reason to believe that the current lunar tetrad is a sign of the world to end. Even mainstream religious organizations have debunked this claim, so don't start hoarding end-of-the-world supplies just yet!

9. It will Happen on Harvest Moon

Harvest Moon is the Northern Hemisphere's first fall (autumn) full Moon.
The Harvest Moon is the first full Moon of the Northern Hemisphere fall (autumn).
The Lunar Eclipse on September 27/ 28, 2015 will occur during the Northern Hemisphere's first fall (autumn) full Moon. Called the Harvest Moon in many northern cultures, it is the full Moon closest to the September Equinox, and is astronomically significant.
On average the Moon rises about 50 minutes later every successive day in a lunar month – the time period between two full Moons or two new Moons. In New York, for example, a new Moon will rise at 6:50 am on September 13. On September 14, the Moon will rise almost 60 minutes later at 7:46 am.
Around the Northern Hemisphere's Harvest Moon, this time difference between two successive moonrises decreases to about 30-40 minutes for a few days. In New York, a full Moon will rise at 6:36 pm (18:36) on September 27 and on September 28, the Moon will rise 40 minutes later at 7:16 pm (19:16).
This curious phenomenon, which is also sometimes called theHarvest Moon Effect occurs because of the low angle that the Moon's path around the Earth makes with the horizon during the northern fall (autumn) months. This effect reverses during the Northern Hemisphere spring. The large angle that the lunar orbit makes with the horizon ensures that the moon rises more than 50 minutes later every day around the northern Spring Equinox.
Because seasons in the Southern Hemisphere are opposite to the seasons in the North, the Harvest Moon Effect occurs around the southern Fall (Autumn) Equinox in March.

10. It is Part of Lunar Saros Series 137

Like solar eclipses, lunar eclipses tend to occur in 18 year long cycles called Saros cycles. Lunar eclipses separated by a Saros cycle share similar features, including time of the year and the distance of the Moon from the Earth. Eclipses that are separated by a Saros cycle are included in a Saros series.
The September 27/ 28, 2015 Lunar Eclipse belongs to Saros Series 137. It is the 28th eclipse and the last total lunar eclipse in a series of 81 lunar eclipses. The series began with a penumbral eclipse on December 17, 1564 and will end with another penumbral eclipse on April 20, 2953.

11. It's the Last Eclipse of 2015

2015 has 4 eclipses, the minimum number of eclipses that can happen in a calendar year. The September 28 Total Lunar Eclipse marks the last eclipse of the year. It will be preceded by a partial solar eclipse on September 13, 2015.
The first eclipse of the year, a total solar eclipse took place onMarch 20. Two weeks later, on April 4, 2015 the first lunar eclipse of 2015 took place.

Is it true that Indian Prime Minister Modi calls US President as Barack?

Is it true that Indian Prime Minister Modi calls US President as Barack?

Yes, he is probably the first one to call him by the name. No one dares to call the World's Most Powerful Man by his name.
But, why Modi did this?
Is Mr. Modi trying to challenge Obama's power by calling him with his name?
Of course, not. So let us slowly get into what the reason was.
Mr. Modi and his team might have started thinking of many new diplomatic ways, the day world's most powerful person accepted the invitation for India's Republic Day Celebration. 
Mission was for sure to present India as an evolving world power and to deepen our friendship with the United States.
So Modi had to express these feelings in the best possible way and none of the politician is as talented actor as him. Some of the things Modi did to extend the hand of friendship are as follows:
1. Mr. Modi hugged POTUS just like a friend as he got off from Air Force 1. This was the first element of surprise which took Obama by shock (as it is seen in the image). 

2. Modi then used the tactic which he even used in the Lok Sabha Elections, the image of chai wala. He himself served tea to Obama, which reminds me of a Bollywood movie dialogue. "Do dost ek pyali mai chai piyenge, isse dosti badti hai" (Two  friends will drink tea in same cup, it increases friendship)though they had it in different cups, but Senorita.. you know what I mean :P

3. So it is clear, that Modi made Obama his friend and a friend does not call friend's name formally. 
But, some people might argue that why he chose calling him"Barack" over "Obama". This answer was given by Modi himself in 'Mann ki Baat''.
He said that he researched over internet to find out the meaning of word 'Barack' which means 'blessed' and he used this by praising Obama (Mr. Modi never misses any opportunity to woo others), while 'Obama' doesn't mean anything.

Mistakes men make in bed

10 mistakes men make in bed

When it comes to what women want in bed, men tend to make serious avoidable mistakes like these

While you may give yourself pep talks before a lazy encounter or pat yourself on the back after a great time in bed, don't be too smug about knowing what women want. A recent survey suggests that most men are not the skillful lovers they think themselves to be. When it comes to the fundamentals, men tend to make some serious mistakes in the sack. Here are the 10 avoidable ones.

Silent play
No matter the circumstances, most men tend to be eerily silent during the entire act. You may think that's fine, but this makes your woman feel alienated. It makes her wonder if she's actually pleasuring you. There's no need to exaggerate your feelings, but you can let your partner know you're enjoying her company in a genuine way. The occasional moans and groans are not such a bad thing.

Foreplay is not a means to an end
Most men tend to breeze through it — the effortless kissing here and caressing there, as they undress. But in too much anticipation of a great act, you may appear desperate to begin. And that won't score you any brownie points in the long run. Take it slowly. Enjoy every aspect of the encounter as you get to know the woman you are with. Women enjoy a well-paced build-up — the making-out, the undressing, the reciprocal oral sex. This will also lead to a more fulfilling encounter. And perhaps, a standing invitation for more.

Forget the big O
Besides, when you approach sex with a clear focus on only reaching an orgasm, you may lose sight of the path to the climactic moment. Don't pressure yourself, or your partner, to hit the finish line as quickly as possible. Rather than rush it, why not enjoy the experience as a whole. You'll prolong your pleasure, and your partner will feel like she's with a guy who actually knows what he's doing. The conclusion, though delayed, will be a lot more satisfying for both.

Avoid the licking
Performing oral sex on a woman means quick licks at the labia majora, followed by brief, orgasm-inducing penetration with your tongue. However, while that may seem enticing, the labial tonguelashing is not a technique that docs recommend. USE

The fingers carefully
Although digital penetration is considered a normal part of foreplay, some guys get overeager and, confuse their fingers for penises. As a result, they finger their partners with a vigour reserved for sex. This also reflects that they have no clue what a woman wants, which is why they have resolved to go hard and fast. Instead, you should aim for a more measured approach; make her get used to the feel of your fingers as you gradually insert more of them. There's room for intensity, but a little nuance will surely take you a long way.

Sensitise to her wants
If you think that simply pounding away at a woman during sex is a major turn-on, you are wrong. Yet, many men convinced that it will ultimately bring their partners to orgasm. But women are sensitive souls. They appreciate nuance, feeling and deep emotion. So, rather than thrusting away from beginning to end, you'll want to vary your speed throughout sex. Gauge your partner's response, take it as a lead and simply go with the flow. If she asks you to go harder, oblige. But if the moment calls for it, go slowly. The key is to sensitise yourself to what she wants, and not what you want.

Go easy with the clitoris
Women enjoy the clitoral stimulation than any sort of penetration. So never ignore her clitoris. Yet, at the same time, don't treat it like a scratch card and rub relentlessly in order to make your partner climax. Remember, the clitoris is extremely sensitive, so too much force can actually prove painful.

Keep her entire body in mind
When you have sex, you aim to pleasure the woman you are with. So it makes sense that many guys focus on the one or two sensitive areas of her body like the neck or thighs. However, the next step is not to look for other ways to please her. Though this notion is understandable, it is also incredibly short-sighted. The law of diminishing returns applies everywhere — even in the bedroom. If you've worked her neck for a while, move down to her breasts. And you may not want to focus heavily on her clitoris. Overstimulation can sometimes prove unpleasant. So keep things varied. As the age-old adage goes, variety is the spice of life.

Rough now, but be sweet later
There's nothing wrong with a little roughness if it's consensual. But you should never take it too far (no one wants to leave the bedroom in need of medical attention) and you should always remember to show some compassion afterward. When it's all over, make sure you pay attention to her immediate needs, which will likely mean some snuggling and cuddling.

Don't stress about the G-Spot
The location of the G-Spot (Grafenberg Spot), has long eluded men. It is widely understood to be a couple of inches up the anterior vaginal wall, between the vaginal opening and the urethra. Your search will probably be less scientific, once you've inserted your fingers into her vagina, curl them as though you were asking someone to come toward you; the spot you're looking for will feel rippled. But don't let that elusive area become the be-all, end-all of your sex life.

Rail to be next reverse innovation from India

Rail to be next reverse innovation from India'

Jeffrey Immelt, chairman and CEO of GE, by his own admission believes the $148-billion conglomerate with a diverse portfolio ranging from light bulbs and power equipment to healthcare and locomotives is witnessing its biggest transformation in history. Immelt, one of the most celebrated CEOs in a company which has been the most scrutinized and applauded in equal measure by students of business as well as management thinkers, recently decided to exit the finance business housed under GE Capital and focus a lot more on industrial internet, big data and software. The software division has a turnover of $6 billion now and the infrastructure engineering behemoth is said to be looking at a top 10 position by 2020.

In India, it's betting big on renewables, healthcare, power equipment and software but perhaps its biggest bet is the railway locomotives contract, for which it's been waiting for over a decade. In India last week to review the company's $2.5-billion operations, the 59-year-old chief executive, who took charge of the company in 2001, spoke exclusively to TOI on the new GE and where India fits into his game plan. Excerpts ...

A recent McKinsey report suggests that the 30-year period of unprecedented profits is coming to an end as competition intensifies and technology disrupts the business landscape. So how does GE disrupt itself before somebody else does? Also, what's your vision for the new GE way?

Companies have to be willing to innovate and be brutal about cost at the same time. I want us to have a cost structure that's lower than India and China. Because if you can't do that, then McKinsey might be right. But I watch company after company that can do one or the other or neither, but very few companies are willing to do both and keep investing in good times and bad recognizing that you are only as good as how efficient you can be.

When I think about the company, I think about four big elements. The first one is portfolio; so we've just completed Alstom, we are selling GE Capital; we are really defining ourselves as the great industrial infrastructure company of this age. The second is what I call the GE Store. We have these big horizontal initiatives in technology, globalization services, and things like that make us work. I think India is a prime example where the totality of the company is so much stronger than any individual business. The third is digital industrial. And I think by and large, industrial companies need to drive more digitization inside their company. But if you look outside the company, you know a new gen engine has 100 sensors on it; a new locomotive is a rolling computer. So we need to be as keen on the analytics and software side as we've been on the material science side. The last one is just a re-exploration of our culture to say, look in order to do all the above in 175 countries, we have to be leaner, communicate faster, empower people, have faster processes... and so those four things are really what's defining GE today.

What's the rationale of still having healthcare and lighting in your portfolio?

We have never been afraid to sell things or buy things; we've sold almost half the portfolio. When you travel around most parts of the world, healthcare is considered infrastructure and makes society productive. So, in many ways, it's a natural fit. And by the way, it's going to be 20% of the world's economy. I think lighting is a different story completely. If all the lighting was a consumer incandescent business, we would have sold a long time ago. But in the world of LEDs, it's really a high-tech infrastructure, business... it's going to be the lead in terms of how we go after energy efficiency with some of our consumer industrial.

There is a lot of talk around diversity in board rooms and pressure is building on companies around it. What is GE doing on it?

You just have to be committed to being a meritocracy and to being a company where the best people get the best jobs. Just last month we promoted our first woman to be vice-chairman (Beth Comstock) and we just promoted a woman to run the locomotive business (Jamie Miller). So, we have exceptional diversity but it really gets down to meritocracy, not just gender or race or things like that.

When do you foresee a woman taking over as GE CEO, or for that matter someone of an Indian origin?

I never predict things like that, but I would say we have very good talent of both inside the company today. Both are extremely possible in the GE I see today.

GE is going through a transformation in its people policies as well. You have a new appraisal system, bonus policy. Do you think you have been late in catching up when GE usually leads in areas like these?

I think we have always been willing to blow up the company and so I think we are always culturally astute. We are still very outcome-focused, because we are very performance-focused. But we want to make the feedback very contemporary, more constant, more 360-degrees. We don't aspire to be either ahead or behind, we just aspire to be really great. Everybody is working on how you make size an advantage out of a disadvantage. We would like to think we are in the lead in that area.

What kind of reverse innovations are happening from India?

I always believe in India. When we talked about reverse innovation almost 5 years ago, it was really with healthcare in mind. So we are trying to pivot what we learn in India and make it the platform by which we grow the globe of business.

A customer here talked of using invertors between wind and solar technology. His idea is how we can design the product that would be as robust to wind and solar in a medley instead of having two different products. That is a unique idea that could fit almost anywhere in the world. A lot of what we are doing in wind are the things we can sell globally. The rail project, when it goes forward, will be another example of India playing the source of innovation for the global system.

GE has put a big emphasis on big data. But the managers are largely from the old economy ...

If we sit here 15 years from now and 15% of the market cap of S&P 500 is the industrial internet and GE gets none of that, I would consider myself to be a horrible failure. And, in order to do that, to your point, we have to bring in people that know the technology, know the business model, move at the right pace and, that is critical. So the guy (William Ruh) who is showing us the way is from Cisco. I am willing to change the company to do whatever we need to do to win in the industrial internet.

Would you say that this is perhaps one of the biggest transformations in GE's history?

No doubt. I think industrial companies made a mistake 15-20 years ago to say 'software is somebody else's business, and our business is iron'. Today, it is embedded. So, if you are still thinking like you were in the 1990s, you are going to get smoked. And that is not the way we think of where the world is going or the role we have to play in it. It is fundamental to the company and our strategy. And, it is one we can't lose in.

You have talked about being patient in countries like India. Is it your experience with the Railways?

It is the just the way globalization takes place; it comes in spurts. We did a JV with Godrej in 1988 for appliances... then we did the BPO GECIS and the Bangalore Tech Centre. In the last decade, we did a lot around infrastructure, but then we discovered manufacturing. Do I wish I had a magic wand and could make all the reforms that Jeff Immelt and GE would like in India? Sure I do. But that's not the way the systems work. The best companies always find a way to persevere.

Of all your businesses, which are the two or three businesses which you would see growing much faster in India over the next five years?

Rail would be a significant opportunity for a company like GE. I think oil and gas could be an incredible sector for us from virtually zero a couple of years ago. Wind energy is massively growing. Though we have been here a long time with healthcare, it could be a good growth opportunity. And the one that I am not mentioning is the one that is the biggest business in GE - power generation. The fifth one I would add is military aviation. If there is an indigenous fighter, that would be great. India is going to be a big hub for our industrial internet and I would see more software for India as well for us.

And what would this entail?

We are building our own operating system called Predix and so what we would have in India is a more substantial group that is doing applications on the Predix, probably in the power and energy sector.

What are some big changes you'd want to see in India? What are the things that need to move faster?

I think we just have to reform the bureaucracy. The regulation is just not conducive to the massive kind of investment that needs to be made in the country. And as part of that, you just need to open up transparent markets. On the business side, we have to do a better job of creating broader opportunities for more people in India - whether that is through manufacturing or bringing water and healthcare to rural areas. And, I think that those two need to happen more or less at the same time.

The crisis in the Middle East and the slowdown in China are among the factors that could impede growth in businesses. Do you see any other?

We just really live in slow growth and volatile times and that's been true for a long time. So the only kind of balancing force is that the US economy is much better. The Middle East, North Africa, Turkey region is going to have 15% growth this year, one of the highest in the company. Egypt is going to spend $2 billion with us on electricity. So there are opportunities out there if you have real solutions for your customers and for society, and that's what businesses like us have to go out and get.

Railway growth story yet to pick up steam

Railway growth story yet to pick up steam

While earnings from freight continuously suffered, those from carrying passengers — an area where the railway has a monopoly in most segments — was almost Rs 1,900 crore lower than what it should have been to meet the targets.

indian railways, indian railways project, rail budget, indian railways budget, indian railways budget india, railways budget, india news, latest newsAn in-house analysis by the railway ministry revealed that its expenses for running its affairs went up by Rs 1770.95 crore as compared to the corresponding period of the previous year.
Under pressure from its own steep targets for pushing business, the railway growth story — as promised in the Rail Budget — seems to be losing steam. In the first six months of the financial year, the national transporter has been grappling with huge shortfall in earnings, and even finding it difficult to speed up execution of key projects. Up to the end of August, there was an overall shortfall Rs 6172.78 crore in earnings as compared to the Budget Estimate for the financial year 2015-16.
“To ensure speedy execution, the (Railway) Board needs to review its budgeting and fund allocation mechanism so that pace of execution does not slag during the first four-five months of the financial year,” a letter from the Prime Minster’s Office said.
While a section of the railway bureaucracy blamed a supposedly tepid economy and the monsoon for the lack of freight business, figures suggested that its own management of the affairs was also to blame.
An in-house analysis by the railway ministry revealed that its expenses for running its affairs went up by Rs 1770.95 crore as compared to the corresponding period of the previous year. Most importantly, all the revenue streams showed a decline over six months.
While earnings from freight continuously suffered, those from carrying passengers — an area where the railway has a monopoly in most segments — was almost Rs 1,900 crore lower than what it should have been to meet the targets.
This year the railway had also pledged to spend Rs 1 lakh crore — the highest-ever for any Rail Budget. But the tardiness is evident from the fact that the railway has been able to spend only Rs 17,000 crore in the first quarter — clearly a sub-par performance. Central to the Rail Budget this year, the execution of 77 doubling works funded from external borrowings has been stuck in files. The NITI Aayog recently gave in-principle approval to a handful of them that will see some action soon.
Sources in the Rail Bhavan argued that since a memorandum of understanding with the LIC for Rs 1.5 lakh crore earlier this year took care of the funding part, any delay will be called a lapse on part of the railway.
Amid all this, there’s a prospect of missed targets.
On the stiff freight loading target of 1190 million tonnes in the current financial year, Railway Board Chairman AK Mital said: “These months of the year are traditionally the season of low freight movements thanks to the rains, low demand and other factors. Freight loading usually picks up towards the subsequent quarters. It is true that we have set high targets for ourselves but as of now there is no reason to believe that we will not be able to achieve those targsteam
