The Conflict [An Original Poem]

The Conflict [An Original Poem] The poem begins when the story stops
Today, all sitting Trees hunger strike. In the hot afternoon sun stranded traveler
Eyes closed nature of the consent of the sun. Rain and enrolled in this Satyagraha
The rebellion came and went with the letter. Kick lies in the nature of the world
Humankind, lawlessness masterful hand crushed. Book barbed wire dripping blood, shooting
The inevitable triumph of truth requires. The poet lived up to the rhythm of the dead rebels
Truth conflict will end one day. And this is my original abstract art “The Conflict”

mathematics behind chess

Is there any relationship between supposing numerically and supposing in the round of Chess? At the end of the day, should a man having a dynamic personality in Mathematics turned out to be essentially a decent Chess player have aptitudes in Mathematics? 


It is important to call attention to that because of the subject intricacy, our endeavors will be to clarify essential attributes of both  Science and Chess which have been postured by surely understood Mathematicians and Chess players.

Individuals having poor involvement in Mathematics trust that knowing how to include, subtract, increase or separation empowers them to say that they could ace Mathematics. Others having some aptitude in performing fast estimations think the…

Travel the World Using Bitcoin Only?

Bitcoin seems uninterested in reaching new highs even after several  days have passed of the halving event. The cryptocurrency remains right  under $670, with its price constantly dropping around the $650 mark and  then improving once again. The volume has declined once more, promising  peaceful days ahead, despite the strong buy signal received by  indicators and averages. However, what seems to be an utterly boring day in terms of price  movement, it’s actually a very interesting day when it comes to  Bitcoin-related events. Turns out that the Bitcoin wallet iPayYou has  made possible Bitcoin Twitter payments, while investors are demanding  solutions that would guarantee them that their money won’t be simply  stolen by hackers in the future, reminding of the unpleasant event that  took place in June when a thief scooped $60 million worth of the virtual  currency Ether. Nonetheless, probably the most amusing and unbelievable story is  about a man who managed to travel around the worl…

image credit A big step for mankind - South Africa is participating in HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine program. This vaccine could prevent HIV infection. The drug trial began last month. This program is called HVTN 702. About 5400 adults are participating in this HIV vaccine trial. Scientists say that this HIV vaccine program is the largest and most advanced trial program in South Africa.   “If deployed alongside our current armoury of proven HIV prevention tools, a safe and effective vaccine could be the final nail in the coffin for HIV,” said Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), which falls under the American National Institutes of Health (NIH), a co-funder of the trial.   “Even a moderately effective vaccine would significantly decrease the burden of HIV disease over time in countries and populations with high rates of HIV infection, such as South Africa.”  image credit Dr Glenda Gray is the protocol chairman of HVTN …
