An Electric Vehicle (EV) is referred to as a car that works on one or two motors that use the energy from the rechargeable batteries. Compared to the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) cars, EVs on the other hand, do not make much noise and have lower emissions overall. Nowadays, people are considering EVs instead of ICEs as it has lower maintenance costs and is environmentally friendly. So these are a few points which one should consider before buying an electric vehicle.

What possibly be the better option, being an introvert or an extrovert? I always say that I am an ambivert but is there such a thing? I do not intend to question the meaning of the word ambivert here. This thought has struck me several times because one cannot be inclined on both sides in this case. It gives me feelings of indecisiveness. One can be either an introvert or an extrovert. Yes, they might switch between the extremes but in my belief, one cannot hang in between.

NASSCOM report states that India has around 40 startups dealing with smart farming. But majority of them are research organizations and only a marginal number of solutions provided by them have been actually implemented in the farms. In India, small and medium-sized farmers are the future of Indian agriculture as large farmers constitute 1.5 percent of the population and contribute only to 35 percent of the food grain production. Thus, it is necessary for these research and development organizations to understand the requirements of small and medium sized farms so that it is easier for them to adopt innovations and techniques and increase the agricultural yield. The small and medium farmers produce for their families and a small portion is left for the market, giving farmers a small value for their products. Thus, introducing smart farming technologies should primarily aim at promising lower costs of production and guide them to get better value for their products.

When applying Internet of Things (IoT) to the agriculture domain, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications are a central key, empowering ubiquitous and independent communications amongst numerous gadgets without any human interference. In this way, necessities such as productivity, versatility, low-cost equipment and low-power utilization are expected from this kind of communications. The demand for these necessities varies according to the various application scenarios, which has driven to the development of endless number of conventions, standards, communication stacks and models, each one addressing specific issues or applications.

An intermediary unit, typically known as an IoT gateway, is required to allow interaction between devices that rely on different communication technology or devices that use different application protocols. A number of standards have been developed that specify the deployment of IoT gateways to support M2M / IoT services. One of the most relevant ones is the OneM2M that provides a horizontal platform and supports secure, reliable and efficient operations of multiple IoT/M2M services, particularly those dependent on REST APIs. It also supports multiple existing application protocols like HTTP, CoAP and MQTT and communication technologies such as ZigBee, Bluetooth, WiFi and Cellular networks as well as the IMA-DM and BBF TR-069 protocols. There are other turnkey solutions differentiated by the application protocols that they support like the INTEL and the SmartM2M.

The Greatest Gift Ever-Love

The only bond that you can share with anyone, with anything, and in fact with everything in this world is love. Life is what you make it and love is what you show it. It starts with the simplest action, such as easily sharing chocolate with a friend or showing kindness towards a stranger. It doesn't cost a cent to show love but can produce results that are worth millions. Love in this world can be received easily but expressing the same love to others is what we require. We must begin love from within us, when done so, it induces the confidence to create and spread love to others. We are the masters in any relationship, no matter how hard it is and there is nothing we can't solve through love. Love is always followed by care, kindness, and empathy, the most disappearing constituents in us today.
