Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has introduced a couple of prepaid plans, priced at Rs 199 and Rs 499. The new plans ship with daily data benefit, unlimited voice calling and free Cricket SMS Alerts about the current ongoing Cricket match. The Rs 199 prepaid plan comes with a validity of 28 days while the Rs 499 plan offers benefits for 90 days. Sadly, they both ship with just 1GB data per day which is underwhelming since BSNL is touting them as plans aimed at Cricket lovers and 1GB data benefit will not be enough for the users who stream Cricket matches on their mobile phone. Also, it’s unknown whether these plans fall under the BSNL Extra Data offer which adds 2.2GB daily data to your existing plan’s data benefit. Both the plans are effective across all the 20 telecom circ
Eating more than 10 grams of nuts a day may improve thinking, reasoning and memory, and keep age-related mental disorders at bay, a study has found. The study by researchers from the University of South Australia was conducted on 4,822 Chinese adults aged over 55 years. The study is the first to report an association between cognition and nut intake in older Chinese adults, providing important insights into increasing mental health issues, including dementia, faced by an ageing population. "Population ageing is one of the most substantial challenges of the twenty-first century. Not only are people living longer, but as they age, they require additional health support which is placing unprecedented pressure on aged-care and health services," said Ming Li, lead researcher at ...
Drinking piping hot tea or coffee can significantly increase the risk of developing oesophageal cancer, a study claims. Previous studies have revealed a link between hot tea drinking and risk of oesophageal cancer, but until now, no study has examined this association using prospectively and objectively measured tea drinking temperature. The study, published in the International Journal of Cancer, achieved this by following 50,045 individuals aged 40 to 75 years for a median of 10 years. “Many people enjoy drinking tea, coffee, or other hot beverages. However, according to our report, drinking very hot tea can increase the risk of esophageal cancer, and it is therefore advisable to wait until hot beverages cool down before drinking,” said lead author Farhad Islami, of the American Cance
Financially troubled Jet Airways seems to be headed towards more turbulence as around 260 of its pilots have applied to join SpiceJet, even as investors like public sector banks struggle to stitch a rescue plan for the airline. The development took place on Wednesday when pilots of the beleaguered airline applied for jobs in SpiceJet's open interview sessions held here on Wednesday. "Out of the 260 pilots, 150 are senior commanders. The commonality of Boeing jets between the two airlines is the main draw for pilots to apply in SpiceJet," a source told IANS in Mumbai. Jet currently has 1,900 pilots on its rolls. This is now being looked by all other domestic airlines, especially those who are looking at international expansion.Vistara has been permitted to fly abroad while SpiceJet...

That is not typically how it is done. These days it’s more likely that dozens of hackers are working together in an office building somewhere. They try breaking into computer systems and ultimately take over your computer, demanding a ransom to give it back. Or they could try making a fast buck by selling your usernames and passwords on the Dark Web. Either way the end results are terrible for the victims. Unfortunately, some people make it easy on the hackers by using some pretty common passwords that are simple to break. If your password has made it onto the following list, you
The Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) had classified entities as local and global authentication user agencies when it came to accessing Aadhaar database. Now, based on feedback and security audits, it has been found that not all mobile wallets have the required security protocols to protect their database. This is the reason that 90% of all mobile wallets have been banned from accessing Aadhaar database, and now, they will have to rely on other means and sources to complete KYC of their users.
