Tiangong-1- China’s space-cart will re-enter to Earth during March 2018.

Tiangong-1 is China’s first prototype space station, scientists says the space station is expected to re-enter the atmosphere and crash into Earth within weeks.

Tiangong-1 (In English it means Heavenly Palace ) is China’s first prototype space station, serving as both a manned laboratory and an experimental testbed to demonstrate orbital rendezvous and docking capabilities. It was originally intended to be launched in August 2011, however following the failed launch of a Long March 2C rocket in August 2011, the launch was postponed. On 20 September 2011, the spacecraft was again rolled out for the rescheduled launch attempt and on 29 September, 2011 successfully placing Tiangong-1 into low Earth orbit.

China lost control over Tiangong-1 on March 16, 2016 and would be unable to perform a controlled re-entry. It is believed that the space station ceased functioning due to a dysfunctional battery charger. In January 2018, The Aerospace Corporation predicted the Tiangong-1 will likely re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere sometime within weeks, during March 2018. However scientists says it is impossible to plot where space station will re-enter the atmosphere, but the chance is higher in parts of Europe, US, Australia and New Zealand. Some experts says India, mainly Kerala is also in the range for re-enter the space station.

Since the size toe spacecraft is big and according to experts, there are chance that it will do damage, while re-enter in to earth. It might hit someones roof, or there will be a rain of a few pieces of metal, but it is not widespread damage.

According to US Aerospace Corporation, they are estimating that the space station will re-enter the atmosphere during the first week of April. But the European Space Agency says the module will come down between 24 March and 19 April.

The space station weighs 8.5 tonnes and is only about 34.1 feet in length and 11 feet in diameter.

Machine to Machine Communication (M2M)

The Department of Telecom (DoT) has issued instructions to all telecom operators to start using 13 digit mobile numbers for all existing Machine-to-Machine (M2M) customers. After reading this message, many of them has posted rumors on social media that normal retail mobile numbers would also be shifted to 13-digit mobile numbers which is untrue. Here I am trying a small effort that what is M2M communication and its applications

M2M refers to ‘non-human’ communication. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication is a form of data communication that involves one or more entities that do not necessarily require human interaction or intervention in the process of communication. M2M is also named as Machine Type Communication (MTC) in 3GPP.

M2M communication could be carried over mobile networks (e.g. GSM-GPRS, CDMA EVDO networks). In the M2M communication, the role of mobile network is largely confined to serve as a transport network

Applications of M2M

The applications of M2M cover many areas and the areas in which M2M is currently used are given below:

  • Security : Surveillances, Alarm systems, Access control, Car/driver security
  • Tracking & Tracing : Fleet Management, Order Management, Pay as you drive, Asset Tracking, Navigation, Traffic information, Road tolling, Traffic optimization/steering
  • Payment : Point of sales, Vending machines, Gaming machines
  • Health : Monitoring vital signs, Supporting the aged or handicapped, Web Access Telemedicine points, Remote diagnostics
  • Remote Maintenance/Control :Sensors, Lighting, Pumps, Valves, Elevator control, Vending machine control, Vehicle diagnostics
  • Metering : Power, Gas, Water, Heating, Grid control, Industrial metering
  • Manufacturing : Production chain monitoring and automation
  • Facility Management : Home / building / campus automation

Slave trade in Libya

Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry and a global threat. Eevery year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked in countries around the world. Libya is the new hub for human trafficking.

Libya is the main gateway for people attempting to reach Europe by sea. According to the estimation, each year, more than 150000 people crossing the border, from the last three years.

Libya is a country with 1,100-mile coastline has effectively become an open border without government forces to monitor who comes and who goes. Smugglers have filled the void, willing to tightly pack hundreds of migrants at a time into flimsy vessels and shuttle them to Italy.

Refugees and Migrants from many north and west African countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Zambia, Senegal, Gambia and Sudan, who dreamed for better lives, take risk to cross the sea border to reach European countries. They are smuggled into Libya by a network of criminal gangs on the promise of reaching Europe’s shores for better opportunities. But they are not know the cheating happing in their journey end.

As per the International Organization for Migration (IOM), when they arrived at Libya border, the migrant were beaten up and forced to call their families to arrange money for their release. Some of those who cannot pay their captors are reportedly killed or left to starve to death, the IOM said. When migrants die or are released, others are purchased to replace them.

A survivors have told to to UN’s Migration agency that , people are then allegedly sold off like goods in an open market. Smugglers, they use smart phones to connect with people smugglers to get them to Libya’s coast, and that they were then sold, being held for ransom, used as forced labour or for sexual exploitation.

The footage released by CNN appears to show youths from Niger and other sub-Saharan countries being sold to buyers for about $400 (£300) at undisclosed locations in Libya.

CNN also reported that Libya has opened an investigation into the practice…

This issue should reach global attention and UN must interfere the matter.

Beware about Social media messages. Hoax Message about kidnap racket spreads panic in Kerala.

Spreading hoax message in Kerala through social media about missing of children and kidnapped by gangs. After receiving such message, public got panic and suspiciously observing strangers in their areas. Many innocent peoples got victims of such hoax message, mainly migrant peoples. I have searched the facts of such messages and explained here.

Children are the future of nation. A happy child will make their home and the country happy. The future of any country depends upon the right upbringing of its children, for which a congenial environment and adequate opportunities for wholesome development are essential.

In India children considers to be any person below the age of 14, as do most government programs. Biologically childhood is the stage between infancy and adulthood. Our country is the second most populous country in the world, while children represents 39% of total population of the country. Uttar Pradesh (19.27%) is the state with highest children’s population in the country and Kerala stands 15th position with 2.1%

False messages which spread on social media about child abduction gangs being rampant in the state had caused panic among the people. Recently hoax messages of disappearing children are spreading through social media in Kerala. Several such hoax kidnapping attempts message spreading through WhatsApp and Facebook. After reading such message peoples got in dilemma and forwarding such message to other group without knowing the fact of such messages.

Most of the time migrant peoples got prey of such hoax message. There was a beware message spread in the whatsapp stating that this is the photograph of a kidnapper at Chirayinkeezhu who targets our children,”. This message spread viral and the local police under Chirayankeezhu SI went from migrant labour camps to the streets to find whether such a person existed, but they could find none. This is an example of hoax messages on an imaginary kidnapping racket.

A total of 145 girls were among 163 kids kidnapped from Kerala last year, data released by the National Crime Records Bureau shows. They were among 241 people grabbed from the state last year. According to the data, 271 people were bundled off from the state in 2015. In total, 512 people were abducted in 2015 and 2016, and 367 were recovered.

As per Kerala police website, in the year of 2017 (Up to November ’17)there were 161 cases registered for Kidnapping and Abductions. In 2016 the registered cases were 154 and in 2015 the number was 171. According to their portal started there were total 2937 children were missing and recovered 2076.


In the last year a fake articles have injected fear into the migrant workers. A fake message was spread in the migrants social media group. In a social media posting allege migrant workers in Kerala are being ill-treated by their employers, and at least one worker has been beaten to death and his body hung up by his employer. This was really a fake message. But after reading this message, about 500 migrant workers have already left the state, mostly from the hotel and restaurant sector. Two restaurants in Kozhikode had to shut shop after key workers left the state.

If you receive any such message, please check the authenticity before forwarding to any other people or group.
