Goodenough Inventor of Lithium-Ion Battery Reveals Fast Charging, Noncombustible Batteries

King of Battery for almost four decades John Goodenough, Unleashes a new technology, first ever all-solid-state-battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries. With this breakthrough in the world of advanced batteries the skeptical world is finding a hard time to believe if this could drain the market of current lithium-ion batteries. Researchers demonstrated the new battery they invented have at least three times as much energy density as today’s lithium-ion batteries.

A team of engineers led by 94-year-old John Goodenough, professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin and co-inventor of the lithium-ion battery, has developed the first all-solid-state battery cells that could lead to safer, faster-charging, longer-lasting rechargeable batteries for handheld mobile devices, electric cars and stationary energy storage.
--UTNEWS
John Goodenought says, Cost, safety, energy density, rates of charge and discharge and cycle life are critical for battery-driven cars to be more widely adopted. We believe our discovery solves many of the problems that are inherent in today’s batteries.

People would find it as a bluff if any random person had claimed the invention of all-solid-state-battery. Goodenough being the pioneer and father of Lithium-ion battery, after this invention, people are saying that this could revolutionize the era with the hype of Electric cars and could challenge the automobile industry with the help of this invention.

Wget: How To Scrap Any Website From Terminal?

Today I'm going to share you some easy but cool stuffs which I tried on my Linux Terminal. Today I downloaded this blog techjhola.com to my local machine with the help of command line tool "Wget".

Wget is a free utility for non-interactive download of files from the Web.  It supports HTTP, HTTPS, and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies. Wget is non-interactive, meaning that it can work in the background, while the user is not logged on.  This allows you to start a retrieval and disconnect from the system, letting Wget finish the work.  By contrast, most of the Web browsers require constant user's presence, which can be a great hindrance when transferring a lot of data.

Today I will show you how I did the web scrapping of my website. Web Scrapping simply means downloading data from any online platform through automation of third party software. I've added a screenshot of the downloading activity created by wget. The command below looks kind of lengthy. The command I used is:
sudo wget --show-progress --progress=dot --verbose --recurseve --retryconnrefused -x --level=5 https://www.techjhola.com 

I'll now break the command and describe the use of each parameters used within a single command.

Basically to download a website it is okey to provide the default command wget www.sitename.com. But at the same time you should make sure if the download is on progress so you add the parameter: --show-progress.  So i used --show-progress command along with the dot displaying parameter --progress=dot. 
Now that a website will have different directories that it fetched tie file from so I added a --recursive parameter.  -x  is used such that I shouldn't bother about any restrictions and I can download the site forcefully. 
--retry-connrefused This is useful parameter which helps to continuously retry connecting to the website and establish a connection. 
Wget has this special parameter level,  which you shouldn't miss using wihle downloading a website which has many indepth urls within an article or a page.
Suppose you use --level=3,  than the download begins with the doamin i.e. www.techjhola.com ans it starts downloading all data of the domain. If it finds any content with a weblink then it downloads everything inside that weblink. Same is done till it reaches its final level i.e. 3.

There are huge bunch of parameters that you can implement while executing the command. To learn about the tool type man wget in your terminal.

Offline Wikiepdia in HeNN E-Library Project

There are more than 35 E-Libraries  setup in Nepal by Help Nepal Network which runs on Linux Machine(Edubuntu : Educational Distribution of Ubuntu). What we the volunteers from Kathmandu University Open Source Community have done is, we have download GBs of wikipedia from the High Bandwidth University Internet and added those contents to the E-Libraries. And the volunteers update the content of wikipedia every three months they visit the site for Monitoring.

Windows 10 : How to Disable Login Screen Background Image


Windows 10 included Hero wallpaper that comes as a default wallpaper in final build of Windows 10. It also popped in the same image for the login background.
It might have pleased a few people but most of the people out there don’t seem to have liked it.

DISABLING THE LOGIN SCREEN BACKGROUND IMAGE IN WINDOWS 10

  • Go to Start > type regedit
  • On the folder tree (left side of regedit window), open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > System
  • By clicking System, you can see (Default) file on the right pane of the window.
  • Right-click on the empty area > New > DWORD (32 bit) Value
  • Name the file DisableLogonBackgroundImage (Remember: Name the file exactly mentioned here)
  • Double-click the file:
    • To remove the Windows Hero background, set the Value data to 1.
    • To restore the Windows Hero background, set the Value data to 0.
This method sets the accent color to the background image in login screen. In the internet, you may find 3rd party software that commits to set user defined image but after the KB3081424 Windows Update, it seems to cause screen flickering issue between Lock Screen and Login Screen.

How to Resolve Issue "UNABLE TO RESOLVE HOST HOSTNAME" in UBUNTU ?



Today's blog is about a simple issue you sometimes encounter after you rename your machine's hostname. 
Issue: 
[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hostnameUnable to resolve hostname xenialPlease enter your password:
This issue occurred to me just recently when I renamed my machine name from whoareyou to xenail.
Everytime I encountered this "Unable to resolve hostname xenial" issue

Earlier while I checked my hostname with command sudo cat /etc/hostname the result was xenial.
[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hostnamexenial

But the hostname was not listed inside /etc/hosts. I checked with command sudo cat /etc/hosts

[email protected]:~$ sudo cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.1.1 whoareyou
The exact reason for why the host xenail wasn't listed in hosts is yet unknown. But in order to resolve the issue I did this simple tweak.
I renamed the hostname xenial from /etc/hostname to whoareyou.  and restarted the machine. Then after the issue was no more encountered. As simple as it is.

Help Nepal Network | हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क

 नेपाल द्वन्दकालबाट गुज्रिदै गर्दा जनताहरु अन्योलमा थिए। नेपालको आर्थिक, राजनैतिक, सामाजीक उतारचढाबलाई लिएर विश्वसमुदायमा धेरैनै कौतोहलता सृजना भईरहेको थियो। त्यही समुहबीच बिदेशमा बस्ने नेपालीहरु माझ नेपाललाई हेर्ने फरक द्रिस्टिकोण भएको एक समूह बनेको थियो। आफ्नो मातृभूमी अन्योलमा परेको बेलामा दुख अनि समबेदनाको भावनाभन्दा, देशका  राजनीति, राजनितिज्ञ, बिकाशका पुर्बधरहरुको अभाब जस्ता नराम्रो पक्ष्यलाई औल्याउदै खेद गर्ने गर्दथिए।

सन् १९९९ बेलायतमा बसोबस गर्ने नेपाली, रबीन्द्र मिश्रले, हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कको, स्थापना गर्नु भयो। संस्थाको स्थापना १२ जना स्दश्यको समायोजन भएको थियो भने अरुण सिंह बस्नेत नेपालका लागी  संयोजक थिए। आजको मिती सम्म यस् संस्थाको १२ राष्ट्र (अस्ट्रेलिया, अष्ट्रीया, क्यानाडा, डेनमार्क, आयरल्याण्ड,  नेपाल,न्युजील्याण्ड, कतार, रसिया, साउदी अरेवीया, दक्षिण कोरिया, स्वीडेन, युनाईटेड किङ्गडम् र  संयुक्त राज्य अमेरीका)मा संजाल स्थापना भईसकेको छ। आफ्नो १७औ बसन्त पार गरी, यस् संस्थाले राष्ट्र निर्माणमा उल्लेखनीय योगदान पुर्याइसकेको छ ।

हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क सन १९९९मा “एक महिनामा एक डलर” कोषको स्थापना गर्ने नेपालको पहिलो अंतराष्ट्रिय संगठनिक संजाल हो। यस् संस्थाले नेपालका दुर्गम क्षेत्रमा रहेका बालबालीकाको शिक्षा तथा श्वास्थक्षेत्र उत्थानका लागि दत्त चित्त भएर लागीपरेको छ। बाह्र वटा देशमा च्याप्टरहरू रहेका यस् संस्थाले आजका दिनसम्म अनेकौ क्रियाकलाप गरेर रास्ट्रको शिक्षा तथा श्वास्थक्षेत्रमा योगदान पुर्याएको छ।
हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क नेपाली जनसमुदाय माझ "दिने" संक्रृतीको प्रबर्धन गर्ने काम गर्दछ। उद्हारणका लागी बिदेसमा रहेका हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क का सदस्यहरुले त्यहाँ बस्ने नेपाली जनताहरुलाई महिनामा एकचोटी आफ्नो आर्जनबाट थोरै रकम अनुदान दिनका लागी प्रोत्साहन गर्दछन्। नेपालमा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कका सदस्यहरुले बरु  मासिक एक प्लेट मो:मो कम खाने गरौ  अथवा केही कप चिया कम पियौ र त्यो बचत कतै दान गरे भनेर अाफ्नो कार्यक्रम संचालन गर्दछन।

सन् २००२मा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले १२०० पाउंडको आर्थिक सहयोग प्रदान गरी  प्युठानको सरस्वती प्राथमिक बिद्यालयको दुइवटा भवन पुनर्निर्माण गर्न सफल भएको थियो। त्यही साल दांग र डोल्पामा दुई बिध्यलयाको भवन निर्माण र पुस्तकालय सुधारमा करिब २८०० पाउंड सहयोग पुर्याओ। सन् २००३मा आवहान समूह, चाबहिलको सहकार्यमा हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले ६०० पाउन्डको सहयोग गरी काठमाडौँको कपनमा हेपाटाईटीष बी खोप सिबीर संचालन गरेको थियो। साथसाथै खोटांग जिल्लाको दिप्सुंग गबिसा मा ११४० अमेरिकी डलरको लागतमा रेनुका निम्न माध्यमिक बिद्यालयको छत मर्मत गर्न सहयोग पुर्याएको थियो। यसरीनै हरेक वर्ष यस् संस्थाले शिक्षा र स्वास्थ्यमा टेवा पुर्याउदै आएको छ।

शिक्षा र स्वास्थ्यको दिगो बिकाश गर्न सूचना प्रबिधी अंगाल्दै यस् संस्थाले “हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क एल.टि.एस्.पी ई-लाईब्ररी प्रोजेक्ट चलाउदै आएको छ। “एउटा जिल्लामा कम्तिमा पनि एउटा ई-लाईब्ररी” यस् प्रोजेक्टको मूल नारा हो ।

परम्परागत पुस्तकालयको आधुनीक रुप हो ई-लाईब्रेरी। ई-लाईब्रेरी लाई  ईलेकट्रोनिक-लाईब्रेरी पनी भनिन्छ। हजारौको संख्यामा शैक्षिक सामग्री जस्तै किताब, डिक्सनेरी, लेख, गेम्स, गीत, भिडियो जस्ता शैक्षित र मनोरंजनात्मक सामग्रीहरुलाई कम्प्युटरमा संग्रह गर्ने प्रबिधि हो ई-लाईब्रेरी।

पुल्चोक क्याम्पसका केहि बिद्यार्थीहरुले सेमेस्टर ब्रेकमा लगिने भारत भ्रमण नगई क्याम्पसका पुराना र प्रयोग नगरिएका कम्प्यूटरमा ओपन सौर्स सफ्टवएर स्थापना गरी ई-लाईब्रेरी सेटअप गरेका थिए। हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क ले त्यश अभियानलाई निरन्तरता दिदै आजको मिति सम्ममा ३५भन्दा बढी जिल्लामा ई-लाईब्रेरीको  स्थापना गरिसकेको छ। फस नेपालका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले बिगतका दिनमा ई-लाईब्रेरीको स्थापना, मर्मत, समस्याहरुको निवारण र उपयोग गर्नका लागी बिद्यालयका बिद्यार्थी र शिक्षकलाई तालीम दिने गर्दथिए। फस नेपालका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले काठमाडौँ विश्वबिद्यालय स्थित काठमाडौँ विश्वबिद्यालय ओपन सोर्स कम्युनिटीका स्वयम्सेबकहरुले ज्ञान आदान प्रदान गरेपछी अहिले ई-लाईब्रेरीको सम्पूर्ण क्रियाकलाप के.यु.ओ.एस्.सीले संयोजन गर्दछ। सन २०१४मा  हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले काठमाडौँ  विश्वबिद्यालयको कम्प्युटर साईनस् तथा ईन्जीनरिङ्ग बिभाग संग समझौता पत्र हस्ताक्ष्यर गरेको थियो। हेन नेपालका सदश्य रोशेन्द्र ध्वज खड्काले  के.यु.ओ.एस्.सी संग समन्वय गरी ई-लाईब्रेरीको कार्यक्रम संचालन गर्ने गर्दछन।

ज्ञान आदान प्रदानको सिलसिला जारी राख्न र ई-लाईब्रेरीको क्रियाकलाप द्रुतगतिमा लैजाने उदेश्यले अहिले के.यु.ओ.एस्.सीले पुल्चोक क्याम्पसका स्वयम्सेबक हरुलाई  यस अभियानमा हातेमालो गरिरहेको छ।
ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गर्न चाहिने पुर्बाधारहरु निम्न प्रकारका छन्:
  1. प्रथम त एउटा १० देखी १५ वटा कम्प्युटर राख्न सकिने फराकिलो कोठा चाहिन्दछ।
  2. हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कले स्थापना गरेको प्रत्यक  ई-लाईब्रेरीमा
    एउटा सर्भर, एउटा स्विच, १० वटा थिन क्लायन्ट( अर्थात् सरल भासामा भन्नु पर्दा १० वटा कम्प्युटरहरु) हुन्छ।

यी सबै पुर्बधार किन्नु परेमा सरकारी विद्यालयलाई अतिनै महँगो हुन जान्छ। त्यशैले तपाईहरुले हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्क मा आफ्नो बिद्यालयलाई किन ई-लाईब्रेरीको खाचो छ भन्ने कारण देखाएर एउटा प्रस्ताब आवेदन लेखी पठाउनु पर्नेछ। संस्थाले सोही  आबेदनहरु हेरी आफ्नो बर्सिक ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापनाका  लागी प्राप्त अनुदान अनुसार केहि बिद्यालय सुचित गर्द छ। सुचित बिद्यालयहरुमा के.यु.ओ.एस्.सी का स्वयंसेवकहरुले हेल्प नेपाल नेटवर्कको अफिस देखि ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गर्न चाहिने सबै सामग्री लगी ई-लाईब्रेरी स्थापना गरिदिनेछन। सोही समयमा बिद्यार्थी र शिक्षक लाई तालिम पनि दिनेगर्छन।

MICROSOFT AND OPEN SOURCE TECHNOLOGIES

MICROSOFT AND OPEN SOURCE TECHNOLOGIES

Have you ever thought Microsoft a company who sells it's products like Windows OS, Visual Studio, Azure and all much more in hundreds and thousands of dollars would produce something for free? At Microsoft as a matter of fact even the Sticky Note is not free.😝


I never imagined Microsoft would launch a product and not license it as their Proprietary Asset. Neither I had never imagined it would invest its time and money on Free and Open Source Technologies. But it surprised the whole world in last few years. If you have observed the milestone of Microsoft, you would be surprised as I'm these days. Not only Microsoft was interested on Open Source Technologies in past couple of years but also it Launched a handful of Tools and made them Open Source.

Sounds like I'm exaggerating, but below are some of the Tools and technologies launched by Microsoft as Open Source. This will also leave you with a question mark "why is such a huge company  so much interested on FOSS and what would be the future surprises for Open Source Enthusiasts and the Microsoft Lovers.


.NET Core

Microsoft released .NET Core as an open source product on November 12, 2014. This was a huge day for .NET migrating from its Proprietary circle to the open source. The runtime as well as the framework libraries were also made open source together with .NET Core.
.NET Core is a modular development stack that is the foundation of all future .NET platforms. It’s already used by ASP.NET 5 and .NET Native.

Visual Studio Code

Visual Studio Code is a source code editor developed by Microsoft for Windows, Linux and macOS. It includes support for debugging, embedded Git control, syntax highlighting, intelligent code completion, snippets, and code refactoring. It is also customizable, so users can change the editor's theme, keyboard shortcuts, and preferences.
Microsoft released Visual Studio Code on November 18, 2015. And to highlight some of the surprising facts, Recently Microsoft is the one with Highest Commit on GitHub. This fact will be surprising to the Open Source Lovers and also to the Microsoft developer community
PowerShell

PowerShell(including Windows PowerShell and PowerShell Core) is a task automation and configuration management framework from Microsoft, consisting of a command-line shell and associated scripting language built on the .NET Framework.

18 August, 2016 Microsoft announced some of the components of PowerShell as Open Source.

Black Duck Integration with Visual Studio

Black Duck are popular for development of automated open-source code management tools. It's on the news that Microsoft is integrating Black Duck's Hub program with Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services (TS), formerly Visual Studio Online, and Team Foundation Server (TFS).

I Just highlighted some of the Open Source Tools that was developed by Microsoft. With these findings that I worked on I'm interested in the milestones of Microsoft. I want to explore what is it going to release next in near future. Also how will it contribute to the Open Source Community and at the same time handle its Proprietary product and huge customer base. So I think I should also write some more blogs on each of these open source tools and all curiosities I have. Being an Open Source Enthusiast, it would be awesome to compare and contrast the features available in these tools. Also I can get an idea on the motive behind Microsoft's investment to the Open Source Tools. 

Stay Tuned for some more blogs.

Google Text To Speech in Nepali Langauge | नेपाली भाषाको लागी गूगल टेक्स्ट टु स्पीच

प्रविधि जगतको बादशाह मानिने गुगलले भर्खरै मात्र नयाँ विशेषता, नेपाली भाषाको लागि गुगल ट्रांस्लेट अर्थात, गुगल अनुवाद, टेक्स्ट टु  स्पीच सार्वजनिक गरेको छ। यसमा नेपाली भाषाको उच्चारण सहित सुन्न र अनुवाद समेत गर्न सकिन्छ।

यो सुविधा विश्वका अन्य भाषाहरुका लागि पहिलै उपलब्ध भए पनि  नेपाली भाषाको लागि भर्खरै मात्र प्राप्त भएको हो। त्यसका लागि तपाईलॆ आफ्नो कम्प्युटर  अथवा मोबाईलको ब्राउजरमा गएर ट्रांस्लेट डट गुगल डट कम टाईप गरेर अंग्रेजी भाषाबाट सिधै नेपाली भाषामा अनुबाद गर्न सक्नुहुनेछ। महत्वपुर्ण कुरा त यो छ कि, तपाईले स्पिकर बटनमा क्लिक गरेर गुगलबाट आवाज पनि सुन्न सक्नुहुनेछ। यसका साथै अब तपाईले सिधै अंग्रेजीबाट नेपालीमा सजिकै अनुवाद गर्न सक्नुहुनेछ।

Flight Mode (Airplane Mode) : On or Off

Traveling by plane has been one medium of faster transportation for few decades. Crossing miles & miles within a minute has made our life really simple. Air Transportation somehow signifies we are quite familiar with the fact of turning our phones into flight mode or airplane mode and turning some of our electronic devices off.

Question may arise why we need to do this stuff especially, during take off and landing. Why electronic device should be turned off during flight? Can the 900$ phone take 90 million dollar jet to the ground and burn it with its own jet fuel, just because

we didn't turn our phone off to the FLIGHT MODE?

Airplane cockpit i.e. the front part of the plane where pilot takes control over the plane is filled of highly sensitive equipment required for navigating, communicating and other requirement for safe flight. All electronic devices have electromagnetic field that can interfere with the radio frequencies. It’s not only the cell phone but there is electromagnetic radiation that emits from every electronic personal devices and interfere with the the plane’s navigation system, communication system. The electronic signal can also interfere with the signals between the plane and radio station during takeoff and landing.



Safety officials worries that the electromagnetic radiation might interfere with this sensitive equipment in the airplane and creates safety issues. Devices like portable DVD found to drift airplane GPS system few degrees (research from few years ago). This thing can be resolved by turning it off.
If you argue with the flight attendant over using cell phone, you could be arrested and taken off the flight. If you intimate the flight attendant, you could be jailed for decades.

Likewise, issue of frequency reuse also happens simultaneously.
The frequency can’t be distributed all over the places with single tower. So the cell phone company establishes tower from place to place to reuse the same frequency. With car driving along and people communicating from office and home, there is a little chance that this frequency will overlap in another area and create problems. 
It wont be hard to make a call when you are on a ground. You just communicate through single frequency with single tower. However during the flight when you are flying 500 miles per hour moving around the signal will reach out in different towers with the same frequency at same time and interfere with the ground base cell phone system. And increases the possibility to interfere with the plane’s equipment.

In America because of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) one should put their phones with airplane mode on. FCC regulations ban the use of cell phones on planes in order to ‘protect against radio interference to cell phone networks on the ground.”

Present time most of the airplane flight provides on air time. Newer plane technology uses the pico cell which acts like a mini cell tower or base station on board and allows the plane on a flight and tower on the ground to interact normally. Basically, the range of a pico cell is 200m or less which is suitable for the plane on flight. Air France was the first airline to allow the use of cell phone in their planes to mail text make receive call.
“It’s never been proven that a mobile phone signal has interfered with the navigation performance of the aircraft. But just because it’s never happened doesn’t mean it will never happen.”

Google Translate TTS : Text to speech in Nepali Language (टेक्स्ट टु स्पीच यीन नेपाली)

Google has recently released another feature in Google Translate for Nepali Language i.e. TTS(Text to Seech). Now on you can listen the Nepali pronunciation of any words that can be translated in Nepali Language.

This feature was previously available for most of other languages. While Nepali Language didn't have enough resource( which is obviously proper and meaningful dataset that could be processed). 

In order to hear the words that you type you can simply go to translate.google.com type in a word in your desired language and translate it to Nepali. Below the translated word you can find a speaker button. Just press it and you will hear the voice from Google.

Sudeep has made a short and sweet tutorial  on Youtube to demonstrate this newly available feature. Watch the video and you will know how to use it easily. Please provide feedback on our video content. This is our first attempt on Video Tutorial Making.
