Sweet Silent Killer Version 1.5

Are versions and variants applicable only to software and other products?? The answer is a big NO. A new version of diabetes, diabetes type 1.5, is in Chennai now. It is also called LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults). Earlier, there were only two types of diabetes; type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is mostly seen in children and Type 2 diabetes is seen in adults over 30 years of age. Now what is so special in diabetes Type 1.5? Type 1.5 affects both the children as well as adults. Doctors say that the onset is very mild unlike Type 1 diabetes at the earlier stages and it afflicts nearly 15% of the diabetics. So, diabetics…. have a close watch on your health. Even some people, who haven’t had a history of diabetes (type 1 or 2), have been afflicted by diabetes type 1.5. If you have excessive thirst or weight loss, it is better to consult a doctor. After all diabetes is sweet urine but the complications are devastating. That is why it is called as the “Silent Killer.”

A love letter written by a math teacher..

My Dear Sweetheart,

Yesterday, I was passing by your rectangular house in trigonometric lane.

There I saw you with your cute circular face, conical nose and spherical eyes, standing in your triangular garden.

Before seeing you, my heart was a null set but when a vector of magnitude (likeness) from your eyes at a deviation of theta radians made a tangent to my heart, it differentiated.

My love for you is a quadratic equation with real roots, which only you can solve by making good binary relation with me.

The cosine of my love for you extends to infinity.

I promise that I should not resolve you into partial functions but if I do so, you can integrate me by applying the limits from zero to infinity.

You are as essential to me as an element to a set.

The geometry of my life revolves around your acute personality.

My love, if you do not meet me at parabola restaurant on date 10 at sunset, when the sun is making an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would be like a solved polynomial of degree 10.

With love from your higher order derivatives of maxima and minima, of an unknown function.

Ferrari Mess-up

The stage was well set for Felipe Massa and Ferrari to take a healthy lead over Lewis Hamilton who is currently leading the championship points but the Ferrari team goofed up and ended up without any points at the Singapore Grand Prix 2008. Kimi Raikkonen had the chance of finishing fifth, but he once again crashed his car at the closing stages of the race and this ended the hopes of gaining a few points for both Kimi and Ferrari (constructor’s points). McLaren now leads the constructor’s points by a single point over Ferrari.

Earlier, the Singapore Street Circuit made its debut under lights, the world’s first ever night race in F1 history. Felipe Massa started the race on pole position and he was comfortably leading the race until Nelson Piquet Jr., the Renault driver crashed. After this crash, the safety car came in and during that time, a lot of cars pit-stopped. Felipe Massa also entered the pits. The whole drama began there. Felipe was given the green signal to move out of the pit when refueling was still going on. As a result, Felipe zoomed out of the pit with the fuel hose attached to his car and it also knocked down a couple of mechanics during the process. Felipe had to wait for a long time near the exit of the pit lane and the Ferrari mechanics came after some time to remove the fuel hose. Felipe rejoined the race at the last position and was penalized for unsafe exit from the pit. Finally he finished the race at the 13th position. This incident had totally changed the outcome of the race and Fernando Alonso who started 14th in the grid, ended up winning the race.

With only three races remaining in this season, the Ferrari Chief, Luca di Montezemolo, has demanded one-two finishes in all the three races. Its going to be a tough job for the Ferrari team and a nail-biting finish for this  Formula 1 season.

My Critical Voice – The Culprit!

I started blogging from the beginning of this year. It all started as fun, but all of a sudden I feel very rusty. I wondered what might be the reason. Initially, I thought it might be because of the extremely mechanical and pressurized work life that takes a heavy toll on my blogging. In spite of my hectic schedules, I used to have in mind about a few things that I should write about but those thoughts would fade away from my mind. Is it because of loss of memory or laziness?? sometimes even when I sit before the computer to write something I am unable to!! What went wrong? When one of my friends, Diwa, told that he is going to shift to microblogging (Twitter), I was the one who encouraged him to write. Now, I sometimes feel that posting brief updates on Twitter is comfortable as you don’t need to think a lot and write lengthy posts…….. Finally I have found out the black sheep.. it is none other than my own critical voice that prevents me or rather blocks my creative thoughts. So whenever I think of something to write, I start to imagine the outcome of that writeup or whether it is good, bad or ugly…etc.. Was that due to my past work experience as a quality analyst for eight long years and my current role as a technical writer writing customer-focussed user manuals and online help files?? Whatever maybe the reason, I have made up my mind to take control of my critical voice and let my creative voice to speak freely and loudly.
