Harness the Power of Water: Hydropower

Hydropower can simply define as the power obtained from the renewable resources water. As the sun is the perpetual resources warm up the earth surface and evaporates the water. The water vapor gets condense in the upper atmosphere and falls in the forms of the precipitation. Some common examples of the precipitation are rainfall, snowfall, dew, etc.

Component of the Hydropower

1. Optional Reservoir

The reservoir can be constructed to store the water. Stored water has several advantages such as controlled release of the water and it serves as the storage of the water for the dry season.

As the reservoir is the only option to conserve the potential energy in the Hydropower.

2. Diversion Canal

The diversion canal is the canal connecting the reservoir and the siltation tank.

3. Siltation Tank

Siltation tank is constructed to settle the silt. As silt can create several noisome as it decreases the lifespan of the turbine blade. Continuously hitting of the silt can degrade the blade and increase the cost of the maintenance.

4. Power Production

The forceful passing of the water from the siltation tank to the turbine rotates the turbine. This is achieved by adjusting adequate elevation difference, which creates the strong force of the water and rotates the turbine.

Risk of the Hydropower

1. The making of the humongous water storage tank in the reservoir uses the huge volume of land.
2. There is always the risk of the outburst due to the large water volume.
3. Has the potential to wipe out several biotas.
4. Due to massive silt carried by the river that can decrease the reservoir capacity in short period of time.

The country with the High Hydropower Potential and Poverty

Countries with the humongous Hydropower potential are most impoverished country. Lets, take an example of the country with the first and second hydropower potential that is Brazil and Nepal. Nepal is the country with the low Gross Domestic Product despite having humongous hydropower potential.

The scenario of the Hydropower

Due to the awareness of the public on the benefit of using the renewable resources such as hydropower for the Mother Nature. The willingness of the people to seek the alternative sources is constantly on the rise. This clearly justifies the potential high demand for hydropower energy in the near future.

As it is optional to create the reservoir in the hydropower which has several adverse effects on the Environmental.

The best solution for this is to eliminate the reservoir and allocated the hydropower project in the place with the perennial river. The snow-fed river is often the perennial river which water volume did not dry up to significantly low level in the dry season.

Father of Communism Karl Marx or Charles Darwin

Communism is the ideology developed by German philosopher and sociologist coined Karl Marx in 1940s. According to the communist ideology, common ownership of good are stressed. Although the root of this tenets dates back to a long time back.
This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

The first application of the communism was done in French where the priests from the church are brutally put to death. It was the unsuccessful revelation. Later Vladimir Lenin from Russia makes the modification in this tenet and did the successful revelation. …

Aghori Baba Living with the Dead Human Body

Aghori Baba is the most fearsome Baba of all Hindu sects. There are less than fifty Aghori Baba in India as well as Nepal due to their arduous and martinet lifestyle. Both the India and Nepal contain more than eighty percent of the Hindu population, which cremate the dead body. Aghori Baba Lives near the cremation ground and did the ritual in Pyre. Due to their practice of cannibalism, this Hindu sect is given the keen interest by westerners. 

This sect claims that by following the martinet lifestyle they are able to liberate themselves from the natural cycle of birth and death. Due to the excessive indulgence with alcohol and marijuana cigarette, they behave abnormally. True Aghori Baba remains active during the night and remains idle during the day. Any Facebook and Mobile number of Aghori Baba is almost all the potential traps.
The origin of Aghori Sects seems hazy. The scent of evidence suggests that a recluse of medieval Kashmir might have inducted this sect. Due to the varied of s…

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
