Coldplay is Back !!! 

 

Song : EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL 

 

 

Lyrics :

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
I SHUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE UNTIL THE LIGHTS COME ON
MAYBE THE STREETS ALIGHT, MAYBE THE TREES ARE GONE
I FEEL MY HEART START BEATING TO MY FAVOURITE SONG

AND ALL THE KIDS THEY DANCE, ALL THE KIDS ALL NIGHT
UNTIL MONDAY MORNING FEELS ANOTHER LIFE
I TURN THE MUSIC UP
I’M ON A ROLL THIS TIME
AND HEAVEN IS IN SIGHT

I TURN THE MUSIC UP, I GOT MY RECORDS ON
FROM UNDERNEATH THE RUBBLE SING A REBEL SONG
DON’T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER GENERATION DROP
I’D RATHER BE A COMMA THAN A FULL STOP

MAYBE I’M IN THE BLACK, MAYBE I’M ON MY KNEES
MAYBE I’M IN THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO TRAPEZES
BUT MY HEART IS BEATING AND MY PULSES START
CATHEDRALS IN MY HEART

AND WE SAW OH THIS LIGHT I SWEAR YOU, EMERGE BLINKING INTO
TO TELL ME IT’S ALRIGHT
AS WE SOAR WALLS, EVERY SIREN IS A SYMPHONY

AND EVERY TEAR’S A WATERFALL

IS A WATERFALL
OH
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH
IS A IS A WATERFALL
EVERY TEAR
IS A WATERFALL
OH OH OH

SO YOU CAN HURT, HURT ME BAD
BUT STILL I’LL RAISE THE FLAG

OH
IT WAS A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL
A WA WA WA WA WA-ATERFALL

EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL

EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEAR
EVERY TEARDROP IS A WATERFALL

2010 Review : A year in brief

Busted well: 4.9 million

The number of barrels of crude oil that spilled into the Gulf of Mexico following the explosion that destroyed BP’s Deepwater Horizon well. Eleven of its crew died. For three mishap-prone months the company tried, and repeatedly failed, to plug its runaway well. Meanwhile, the crude poured forth, wreaking havoc on deep-water fish, migrating baby sea turtles, and BP chief executive Tony Hayward’s career.

7 million

To keep oil off coastal marshes and, some allege, out of sight, BP released 7 million litres of chemicals to disperse and break up the oil at the well head 1500 metres down. Environmentalists balked. The Obama administration imposed a moratorium on deep-water drilling. Yet in Gulf coast communities, where fishers and oil workers may be the exact same people, the “drill-baby-drill” cry grew ever shriller.

20 million

With an average consumption of more than 20 million barrels of oil per day, industry and consumers across the US would have gobbled up the entire spill in just a few hours. Some denizens of the Gulf have almost as great an appetite for the oil: many deep-water microbes thrive on the stuff, and are probably still enjoying the unexpected feast.

Ice-free 2035

This is the fated year by which, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Himalayan glaciers could disappear. In January, the head of the IPCC was forced to apologise after it transpired that the panel’s prediction for the fate of this crucial source of south Asia’s water was almost certainly very wrong. It had sourced the erroneous date from non-peer-reviewed sources, highlighting the paucity of research on the regional effects of climate change.

Green volcano

Eyjafjallajökull, the volcano that closed Europe’s airspace and stumped English-speaking newscasters trying to pronounce its name, is estimated to have emitted between 150,000 and 300,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a day. That’s less than the grounded flights would have emitted, making it the first carbon-negative volcano.

Cyberwar

Elegant and stealthy, the Stuxnet computer worm slipped undetected into key nuclear facilities in Iran, inflicting substantial damage. No one has claimed responsibility. The sophistication of the code suggests whoever is behind the worm had significant technical resources, leading Iran to point the finger at the Pentagon and Israel. What seems clear is that the first shot has been fired in a new era of cyber-warfare.

Those cursed climate emails

Thousands of them were hacked off the servers of the University of East Anglia, home to one of the UK’s leading climate research units, in November 2009. In 2010, their content was dissected, re-dissected, and then dissected some more, amid claims that some climate scientists had engaged in fraudulent behaviour. Four independent reviews exonerated them, and data sets were made public that were previously under lock and key. And, finally, the world moved on.

Life from life

Make a genome – check. Transplant it into an emptied cell to create the world’s first synthetic life form – check. Frenzied media coverage accusing the researchers concerned of “playing God” – check. So it was in May, when Craig Venter and his colleagues stitched together the genome of a goat pathogen from bits of synthetic DNA and inserted it into the empty cytoplasm of a related bacterium. The implanted genome booted up and divided over and over to make billions more synthetic cells in the image of the original. To confirm that the daughter cells were of the synthetic species, the researchers added coded watermarks to its genome – including a quotation from James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man: “To live, to err, to fall, to triumph, to recreate life out of life”.

10 trillion °C

The highest temperature ever achieved in a scientific experiment, some 1013 degrees, was reached on 7 November inside the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, near Geneva in Switzerland, when it started blasting lead ions together at near light speed. What remained after the smash-up was a quark-gluon plasma, the stuff thought to have made up the early universe. Quark-gluon plasmas had been made before, but earlier in 2010 physicists working on CERN’s CMS experiment recorded a mysterious, never-before- seen signal during the LHC’s proton-proton collisions. They are still scratching their heads trying to work out what caused it.

Kinect connection

Microsoft’s hands-free video controller sold over a million units in the 10 days after its 4 November release in the US. The Kinect makes a great toy for sure, but it is also turning out to be more than that. Its sophisticated depth-sensing camera and infrared scanner have made it a honeypot for hackers, who are using it to manipulate 3D images of themselves and their surroundings in mind-bending software applications. Scientists have gotten a whiff of what the controller can do, too, and are enthralled by its possible applications – which range from controlling robots to 3D mapping and video conferencing.

Homo sapiens neanderthalis

The first draft of the Neanderthal genome, extracted from 44,000-year-old bones found in Croatia, revealed that the genome of all non-Africans is 1 to 4 per cent Neanderthal. In other words, humans and Neanderthals had sex and had hybrid offspring. The absence of Neanderthal genetic markers in modern Africans suggests that the interbreeding happened between 100,000 and 45,000 years ago, after the first humans left Africa but before they split into regional populations elsewhere.

Asteroid dust

All but given up for dead, the Hayabusa space probe finally made it home in June. After a bumpy landing on the asteroid Itokawa and a beleaguered return mission, the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency feared the probe had failed in its mission to bring asteroid dust back to Earth. It took five months for the answer to arrive: Hayabusa had snatched 1500 particles of extraterrestrial dust, which will be scrutinised for clues to how the solar system – and our own planet – formed.

Global nation of Facebook

Facebook welcomed its 500-millionth user in July, just six years after it was created in a Harvard University dorm room. The Facebook “nation” now stands as the third most populous in the world, ahead of the US.

Oscar’s new face

“Oscar”, a farmer who accidentally shot himself in the face, became the first recipient of a full face transplant in March. While all 10 previous transplants had replaced sections of a face only, Oscar was given new facial skin, muscles and nerves, nose, lips, palate, teeth, cheekbones and lower jaw by a surgical team at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona, Spain.

The images in my head

Hope is dawning for people with “locked in” syndrome. In February, an international team of neuroscientists announced that they had conversed with a 29-year-old man diagnosed as being in a vegetative state. By asking him to picture himself doing two distinct activities and monitoring the different patterns in a brain scan as he did so, they created a code for him to answer yes/no questions. Imagining himself playing tennis meant “yes”; moving around his home meant “no”.

Not just a notepad

Long-awaited, but not as coveted as was expected, Apple’s iPad came to market in April. Within 24 hours, Apple claimed it had sold 300,000 units, but then enthusiasm seemed to wane. By September, 4.2 million of the devices had left the mother ship, falling short of Apple’s 5 million projection.

The Best Night I ever Had After Exams

Last Night (06/05/2010) , I was out with three of my classmates , Adil , Ali And Wasim.  We left after the exam for Internet marketing Was over and drove for lunch.

Nando's

Had lunch at Nando’s , along with a deep conversation about controversies , supernatural beliefs and conspiracy theories , making the lunch interesting.

Followed  after our lunch was Ironman 2 . I was excited to see the action , we bought the tickets through the automated system , (I do not understand why don’t people use that machine instead of queuing up for so long). Well the tickets were bought and we entered the cinema. The screen was relatively small so was the theater size.

The Movie was great [ I shall post a critical review about the movie in my next post]

After the movie was over I felt like Iron Man too.. haha I feel that after every superhero movie for 15 minutes. We sat in Wasim’s car and then as soon as he was about to drive I asked everyone for a ten-pin bowling game. Everyone was on it and we played the match , in which I won {Sorry Guys 😦 } ! 😀 , they even challenged me towards the end to take a strike with my eyes closed , which I would like to share with you , its posted on youtube. Check the video of my Strike Below!

After the Bowling match we played snooker, then Delta Force Shooting, Mario Kart Racing,Moto GP race, Air Hockey , and then Finally we left for having a light snack and milk shake at Tinsel Town, London.

It was an amazing Evening. I thank all my friends (Wasim , Adil and Ali ) to make the night so special .

Its them below

From Left - Ali ,Wasim & Adil

It will be a night to remember ! 😀

Please stop judging me ! I am not what you think I am !

There are all kinds of people in this world. There are one kind whom I do not like interacting much are those who go around giving their opinion on the basis of faith, culture,religion,money,ethics and various factors , terming someone as a good or a bad person.

Nobody in this world can be categorised as good or bad completely according to my opinion. Nobody.  Even a person who is a thief cannot be categorised as a bad person , just because he has stolen your stuff. Well of course he is a bad person for stealing your valuables and running away, but he has done that for his family , maybe ; or some other reason , but the underlying point of this debate is that you just cannot  come to a conclusion saying someone is evil or bad. I am not talking on behalf of all the thieves in the world or all “bad” , “evil ” people . I am saying this because I undergo this feeling while having debate about religion with people, and it comes to a point where I just keep my mouth shut and listen to what they say or else just leave the room.

People in my opinion do not go to heaven or hell just because of following the prophets or the holy books teachings, nor by visiting the holy places of worship. I am not an Atheist, but I am just an ordinary person who has a strong faith, and I believe that a person can be both just simple and not religious but still be worthy enough to step on the floors of heaven.

People often argue by saying that if you do not pray on time , or visit your holy places of worship you do not communicate to God , and you do not make him happy. A lot of arguments have been on that one. Well I just ask myself , does God fix appointments to listen to your prayers? Why specific moments or specific holy places to hear our voices? Why Pilgrimages to affirm your faith and make sure he listens to you. He listens to you anyway. Everywhere.

When I was a kid , my teacher told me that you can pray anywhere you like son, on the bus, while climbing the stairs to school, in the class, before going to sleep, just anywhere you want, he listens to you , & its true. He does listen to you , and is there helping you at each step, you just have to realise and feel His presence.

People do get upset and often have a huge argument about this topic, which lasts for hours and sometimes days , even months. All I say is do not judge people on the basis of culture , religion or any other beliefs. A human being is too complex to judge or understand.

I have seen people change , people who the whole world termed good turn bad and the bad turn good, for some reason they do change. People who people term as bad, do a lot of things for charity , but nobody knows. People who do a lot of good, are bad behind the curtains of society. It is very hard to judge, very hard.

Just one advice to all , do not generalise, judge , or comment on anybody untill you know them 100% , and even if you do , and do make up your mind about them, I request you to think twice before making that thought permanent , this world and we humans are more wierd and unique than you can imagine. 🙂

ALL WORLD’S A STAGE

From Shakespeare’s As You Like It, 1600:

JAQUES:
All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper’d pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

William Shakespeare
