Indian boy solves 350-year-old Math problem set by Newton

Lifestyle-City, The Information World

London: A 16-year-old Indian origin schoolboy in Germany has managed to crack puzzles that baffled the world of maths for more than 350 years, it was reported in London Saturday.

Shouryya Ray, from Dresden, has been hailed a genius after working out the problems set by Sir Isaac Newton.

Ray solved two fundamental particle dynamics theories which physicists have previously been able to calculate only by using powerful computers, Daily Mail reported.

 His solutions mean that scientists can now calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and then predict how it will hit and bounce off a wall.

Ray only came across the problems during a school trip to Dresden University where professors claimed they were uncrackable, the newspaper said.

“I just asked myself, ‘Why not?’,” explained Ray.

“I didn’t believe there couldn’t be a solution,” he added.

Ray began solving complicated equations as a six-year-old but says he’s no genius.

After arriving from Kolkata four years ago without any knowledge of the German language, Shouryya is now fluent in the language.

His intelligence was quickly noted in class and he was pushed up two years in school- he is currently sitting his exams early, the Mail said.

Google Earth Icons

The Google Earth icons are now available on the Google Maps server (so that Google Maps can render KML files that use them). There are four folders of icons

Each of the folders contains 64 icons (some of which are duplicates) named icon0.png to icon64.png

For each icon there’s a main icon image PNG (32 x 32) and a shadow image PNG (59 x 32) in the same folder.
No suitable transparent images, print images or imageMaps seem to be available.

These settings are suitable for most of the Google Earth icons:

   Icon.iconSize=new GSize(32,32);
   Icon.shadowSize=new GSize(56,32);
   Icon.iconAnchor=new GPoint(16,32);
   Icon.infoWindowAnchor=new GPoint(16,0);

Heart attack recovery

Heart Disease

Risks after a heart attack

Many people live in fear of another heart attack – and with good reason. About 10 per cent of those who have a heart attack will have another one within a year of leaving hospital. This risk drops to about three per cent every year after that.

Proper rehabilitation, which includes making changes to your lifestyle, can reduce these risks and increase your life expectancy. If you’re not offered a formal rehabilitation programme, ask your doctor if there’s one in your local area.

Heart Health Day 25: Steer Clear of Secondhand Smoke

Got friends or coworkers who smoke socially? Stay away when they light up and your heart will thank you. The effects on the cardiovascular system due to passive smoking are, on average, 80 to 90% as great as those due to active smoking, research shows. Even brief (minutes or hours) exposure to secondhand smoke can have cardiovascular effects nearly as great as long-term active smoking.
