Great discoveries in your space

Do you remember the last time you glanced up and looked at the night sky studded with twinkling stars?

If you don’t remember, then do it tonight for the sake of two latest mind-blowing discoveries in the field of space and astronomy.

1. Gravitational waves from black holes

You’ve read about gravitation and black holes in your science textbooks in school. You have also heard about the famous physicist Albert Einstein. Well, around 100 years back in 1916, Einstein had predicted the presence of gravitational waves in space as part of his famous theory of general relativity.

Now, for more than 10 years, about 1000 scientists from 15 countries were working in a focused manner to detect the presence of gravitational waves in outer space. The scientists monitored this experiment at Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) within the United States.

The painstaking effort of this LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC) was suitably rewarded last year in September 2015. More precisely, September 14 was the day when their set-up of lasers and mirrors finally detected and registered gravitational waves that washed over Earth on the day.

These waves were emitted as a result of collision of two big black holes in space. At the point of impact, the gravitational waves spread like ripples in the grand cosmic pond and finally touched our planet on September 14. To give you an idea, a black hole is caused by the death and collapse of a massive star. Upon collision of the two black holes, the resultant waves (termed as wrinkles in the fabric of space-time) travelled a distance of 1.3 billion light years and touched Earth.

This major discovery was announced on February 11, 2016 and has been underlined as a big jump for astronomy. Astronomers will now be able to look deeper into the cosmos and even make attempts to detect waves that emanated from the ‘Big Bang’ that led to the creation of the universe in the first place!

Just imagine. There are countless stars in our current estimate of 200 billion galaxies in our limitless universe. But what amazing knowledge has come into the hands of humans.

We are small, insignificant humans ….., living in one small planet Earth ….., that is part of one small solar system powered by one small star called Sun ….., in one small galaxy called Milky Way.

And this small Milky Way galaxy itself has probably about one trillion stars and 100 billion planets!

But now this little human being belonging to the Milky Way galaxy has been granted the key to unravel the secrets of the deep and mysterious universe.

Mind-blowing isn’t it?

2. New galaxies in our neighbourhood

The second major recent discovery is an even bigger surprise for the scientific and non-scientific community.

Researchers have discovered hundreds of galaxies hidden just behind our own Milky Way galaxy!

Located just 250 light years away in our galactic neighbourhood, these galaxies were always there right from the beginning of creation. Interestingly, our scientists discovered the presence of our Milky Way galaxy decades back, but failed to see so many more galaxies sitting right behind Milky Way!

In a survey that was completed by International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research and published in the latest issue of Astronomical Journal, readers came to know something astounding. Out of the 883 mapped and surveyed galaxies hiding behind the Milky Way so far, one-third of these galaxies were never discovered before!

The prime reason for not discovering these galaxies was that scientific technology was not advanced enough till date. But today, with the use of a powerful new receiver on a radio telescope, researchers were able to find the hidden galaxies.

The other reason was that our Milky Way galaxy is comprised of dust, stars, light and space — all swirled together in one bright spiral. So, human technology was still not able to get past the bright light of our galaxy. But now, with latest equipment, the new galaxies were spotted.

Had the famous fictional detective Sherlock Holmes been told about this fact, he would have said to his friend, “Elementary, my dear Watson.”

Your inner space

Now you know about these two recent major discoveries related to astronomy and outer space. What does it make you think?

One thought could be that despite all that science has discovered so far, there is still so much more left to discover. In other words, there is still so much more that is hidden.

At this point, let me take you away from the telescope and bring you to the microscope. This microscope is now gazing inside your mind.

What this microscope is clearly able to reveal is the vast expanse of your inner space. The depth of your mind and all its thoughts cannot be calculated. There is no known human instrument so far that can do so.

The fact remains that your inner space is as vast as the large outer space.

But the fact remains that your inner space is as vast as the large outer space. So much has been discovered about your inner space by psychological studies so far. Yet, the inner working of the human mind continues to remain a mystery, just like the outer mysterious universe that you can glimpse when you watch the night sky.

Let me be even more precise. What about the universe that you carry inside you?

How much have you discovered about your own self so far? Are you even aware about the depth of your own mind? Have you ever tried to travel deeper inside yourself and find those amazing hidden galaxies just waiting to be discovered?

HOW TO SELECT A DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY 🏅 . Let's face it. Once you commit your business promotion to digital marketing, then that's a big first step. 🕺 . Your 2nd big step is a challenge. That step is selecting a digital marketing agency that is right for you and your business. 🕵️ . Fact is there are so many digital agencies out there. Whether boutique or full service, each of these agencies claim to be the best. 💕 . How do you shortlist them before you make your 1st contact? 📝 . SELECTION FACTORS ✒️ . Let me give you some pointers. . 1⃣ GOOGLE PAGE CHECK . As soon as you enter “digital marketing agency [your city]” in Google search, check names of agencies coming on Page one ORGANIC search. Those are the agencies you assess first as they are doing something right to deserve Page one search status. 📌 . 2⃣ WEBSITE CHECK . Check out the website of each digital marketing agency you come across. Browse through its pages. 📖 . What kind of vibes do you get from the agency content? How smooth is the browsing? How is the agency coming across to you? 💻 . 3⃣ SOCIAL MEDIA CHECK . Check social media accounts of agency that are listed on its website. Is the agency posting regularly there? What kind of content is there? 🤳 . 4⃣ BLOG CHECK . Check whether agency has a blog. If “Yes”, then what date was the last blog published. If “No”, then it's a minus. Why isn't the agency blogging? Aren't they into content marketing - a crucial element of digital marketing? 🖱️ . 5⃣ TEAM CHECK . Check whether agency lists out its team members on its website. Most agencies don't do this. But those who do, consider them more professional. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 . Go ahead. All the best. 🤞👍 . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #websitedesign #blogging
HOW DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCIES EVALUATE YOU 📋 . If you are a business owner and decide to go for digital marketing, then you take some action. 🏃 . This action in most cases would be that you get in touch with a digital marketing agency. 📞 . Did you know that digital marketing agencies also evaluate you as a prospective client, before deciding to work with you? 🔎 . MY STORY 🎬 . Last month I personally met guys in seven digital marketing agencies in my city. I had assessed work of these agencies and based on merit I met them. 🖱️ . A relative of mine wanted to have his personal website redesigned. Currently he has his own hosting but his website is in HTML code. He wanted his website to have a simple CMS like Wordpress so that his team could upload content on their own. 💻 . I contacted agencies and briefed them on our website requirement. 📃 . HOW AGENCIES REACTED 🚹 . I went to 7 agencies located in 7 different city locations in a single day. 🐰 . The agency owners/reps listened to me patiently. They too shared their thoughts with me. I requested each of them to mail me a proposal. They agreed. 🐤 . Two agency owners however did have reservations in sending a proposal and conveyed to me. They gave me a verbal quotation for the website work. 🦋 . Finally I got three agency proposals in the mail out of 7 agencies in a few days. Two of these agencies even followed up on their proposal. 🗨️ . AGENCY THINKING 🤔 . In my opinion, this is how agencies thought about our business. . 1⃣ Client project doesn't have much merit. Can't give time to it. . 2⃣ Client project doesn't have much ROI. Money returns on project not much. . 3⃣ Can't spare agency teams on client project. Got other high value ROI projects on hand to complete. . (BTW, we haven't finalised any agency proposal yet.) 🐢 . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline

WHY DIGITAL MARKETING IS POINTLESS...FOR YOU 🤖 . Most people agree that digital marketing is very important today. But you are among the few who disagree. You think it is pointless. 🔕 . Here are three reasons why you think so. . #1. NO WEBSITE ❌ . You have no website or blog for your business. Because you feel digital marketing is pointless...even worthless. 🚮 . Having an online headquarter like your business website or blog is critical and STEP ONE for digital marketing. Yet, you choose not to have one. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #2. NO BUSINESS SOCIAL ACCOUNT ❌ . You do have a personal Facebook or Instagram or Twitter account. But you don't have a business account on FB, Instagram or Twitter. You don't think much of it. 🔇 . Having a business social account allows you to run valuable ads promoting your product or service to interested people. Yet you feel otherwise. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #3. NO REGULAR SOCIAL POSTING ❌ . You don't post regularly on your private account about what you are doing in your business. You don't feel the need for it. 🤔 . Most digital marketers would say that posting daily about different aspects of your business is best and ideal. It helps to really connect prospective customers with your business. You prefer to shrug it off. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #websites #websitedevelopment
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE ACTION 🏋️ . Are you done with your thinking? 🤔 . I mean you have been thinking about some problem. Maybe it is one problem or multiple problems. For the past 3 days or 3 weeks or even 3 months you have been thinking about it, analysing it. 🔄 . I think you need to stop your thinking today. What you need to do today is take your first action. That's it. Why? ♻️ . #1. ACTION = RESULTS 📌 . Yes. It is only action that will get you any results. In other words, if you are thirsty, then you need to take action. Pick up that glass of water in front of you and bring it to your lips. Mere thinking won't do it. 🔍 . #2. ACTION = BETTER DECISIONS 📌 . When you take action, you get new thought patterns that help you decide on taking even better action. You see, action stimulates the brain and unites your being towards getting desired results. 📨 . #3. ACTION = HOPE 📌 . Hope hides behind action. Hope appears right in front of you once you start taking action. Both go together. As long as you are taking action, hope stays with you. Action stops, hope goes back in hiding. 🚷 . So, you know what to do now. You have given enough time to thinking. ➡️ . It's time to take massive action now. ▶️⏩ . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #action #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #thoughts #thought #hope #hopeful #decision #decisions #decisionsdecisions #recliner #reclinersofa
WHY YOU NEED TO TRACK YOUR TIME ⏰ . Time they say is one commodity that you can't buy with any amount of money. This is why time is the great leveller. 🕑 . Both rich and poor get equal measure of time to use it to their advantage. You always receive a new set of 24 hours daily, just like everyone else. Can you use that time well? 🔔 . MINDLESS MINUTES 🐀 . Yes. You need to keep strict track of your time. You know time is money isn't it? 💷 . Then why aren't you using your common sense and spending time as carefully as you spend money? 💸 . You don't just throw away your money impulsively at anything you fancy. You think about it and then spend money. 🤔 . Sad thing is you don't think much about spending the precious quota of time that you get every 24 hours. Most times you spend away your minutes and hours mindlessly daily. You don't get anything worthwhile in return for that time spent. Then you get frustrated and disappointed with yourself as success eludes you. 🎲 . TRACK IT 🎯 . Now I offer you a small solution. Track your time. It's completely up to you to adopt it….or not. 🤹 . Since yesterday I have started using this android app called 'Smarter Time’. It tracks my daily time activity. I keep adding activities I am doing at any point. I think it is useful. ✔️ . The objective here is that both your personal and professional life get valuable minutes of nurturing daily. 🔁 . This app could help you analyse and allot your minutes and hours properly to activities that fill you with peace and satisfaction. 🤸 . All the best. 👍 . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #time #timemanagement #timepass #timemanagementtips
