CONSUME LESS, CONSERVE MORE

MEMO FROM NARA


Advising is not a good proposition according to me. Everyone has ideas to follow and lead their happy and productive life. Therefore, there is no need for advising others. In fact, the contents of NN contain tid bits to wake up the dormant spots of you. It never try to advise you. Never. Advising is not the aim of NN. We know that advice will not help to change people. Sharing of good knowledge for good life will certainly stimulate people to think and pick up the best and try to adopt in their life to better off. To make people happy and healthy, there are many ways followed by various organizations in the world. Someone has to have eyes to look for tid bits and learn to put to use. Those who do, they reap the harvest – a bumper one. When I think of it, I get the utmost satisfaction of my sharing knowledge which has some benefit of helping others. Repetition is the mother of learning. There is always something in NN for everyone, irrespective of age, sex and nationality. Go through NN every month to look for new ideas and knowledge to refresh your mind and body. I welcome your cooperation and support for the growth of NN. My best wishes to you all.

BLUETOOTH


Bluetooth is a short-range wireless communications technology that replaces the cables connecting electronic devices. It uses the principle of device “inquiry” and “inquiry scan.” Scanning devices listen in on known radio frequencies for devices that are actively inquiring. When the scanner receives an enquiry, it sends a response with the information needed to forge a connection. It’s used for talking hands-free on a cell phone or listening to music or wireless headphones.

A LETTER TO ME...


Dear Narayanan,
The other day I was at the greengrocer's getting fruits and vegetables when I overheard an elderly lady saying that she was short 60 pence on her purchase and that she would need to put back an item. Just at that moment, a young man in the store dropped a 1£ coin on the countertop and said he didn't want her to go without her greens. The woman thanked the young man profusely and asked what she could do in return. He told her to look for an opportunity to help three other people when she sees a need.
I knew what this Good Samaritan was talking about -- a practice called Pay It Forward, The nicest thing about the idea of paying it forward is that we can practice it on our own. We don't have to be wealthy philanthropists to help others. Sometimes the things that can make a difference in others' lives are as simple as a smile or the offer to extend a helping hand. And these little ordinary acts of kindness paid forward in ever growing numbers can have a real impact on the world.
If you are ready to try paying it forward, you can begin by becoming aware of your surroundings and opening yourself up to situations that you could have a positive effect on. The person who becomes the recipient of your good deed could be someone you know or even a stranger. When someone asks you how they can repay your act of kindness, encourage them to extend kindness to three other people and then tell those people to do a good deed for three more people, and so on. And whenever you feel that someone has done something nice for you, remember to pay it forward as well.
Narayanan, paying it forward can be a very uplifting experience. Just remember that when you pay it forward, be sure to take care of yourself, as well. Giving of oneself is an important and wonderful thing, but we should remember that the better off we are, the more we are able to do for others. Now I hope you will spend some time with your Health, Wealth and Happiness report. May it help you to improve your situation so that you can pay it forward. - Bethea

The above letter was received recently from Ms. Bethea. I found it has a great idea. So I forward it to you. - NARA

FOOD FOR THOUGHT




One of the most effective ways to give individuals attention is to inspire them by sharing insights and revealing to them their own potential.

The largest opponent to courage is fear, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of others. Successful people acknowledge fears, but work to conquer them.

JUST TO LAUGH...



Husband: I invented a computer that is somewhat human.
Wife: You mean, it can think?
Husband: No, but when it makes a mistake, it can blame another computer.

A man was praying to God. He said: “God?”
God responded, “Yes?”
And the man said, “May I ask a question?”
“Go right ahead, “ God said.
“God, What is a million years to you?”
God said, “A million years to me is only a second.”
“Hmm.” The man wondered. Then he asked, “God, what is a million dollars worth to you?”
God said, “A million dollars to me is as a penny.”
So the man said, “God, can I have a penny?”
And God said, “Sure! Just a second.”

What’s wrong, doctor? You look puzzled.”
“I can’t figure out exactly what’s wrong with you. I think it’s the result of heavy drinking.’
“Well then, I’ll just come back when you’re sober.”

We should support and encourage one another
There needs to be openness and honesty with thoughts and feelings
We need to be able to laugh and have fun together
