We cannot miss social networks, games , chatting etc. Eventhough people are having sytem at home, many of us are hesitating to take an internet connection because of its cost. People with big pockets can only afford high speed internet.  So it is necessary to develop an idea which fixes the gap of broadband.

 

General Packet Radio Service

GPRS

Mobile GPRS is the best choice for you. GPRS is the abbreviation of General Packet Radio Service. It is a technology which enables you to browse web in your WAP enabled handsets. This technology can be used to browse through PC too. GPRS is suited for those who are not able to afford high costs, but want to access the services of internet. Money is directly proportional to speed. The speed is also lower as the cost of the connection is lower. I am going to explain this trick here. 🙂

  • Sim card of ISP which supports GPRS.
  • PC suite of the phone manufacturer. For eg. Nokia PC Suite.
  • Internet Browser.

  • After that activate any GPRS offer.
  • Connect your phone to PC through data cable or Bluetooth.
  • Open “Control panel”.
  • Open “Phone and Modem Options”.
  • Under the Modem tab, click “Add”.
  • Tick the box and click next.
  • For Nokia phones, choose your model from the list of models given in “Nokia”. Others choose “MTK GPRS Modem” given in “MediaTek”.
  • Select “All ports”.
  • Click “Next”.
  • Finish the installation. 🙂
  • Open “Control Panel”.
  • Open “Internet Options”.
  • Under the “General” tab, choose the homepage as “http://www.google.com” .
  • Under “Privacy” tab, set the security as “Medium”.
  • Under “Connections” tab, click “Set Up”.
  • Click “Next” – “Connect to internet” – “Setup connection manually”
  • Now type the ISP name. eg. Aircel.
  • Type the connection number as “*99***1#” without quotes.
  • Leave the username and password field blank. Click next.
  • Tick the box and click “Finish”.
  • Open control panel.
  • Open network connections.
  • Right click your connection and click properties.
  • Under Networking tab, click settings and tick the three options there.

Now you are all done. 🙂

Now to connect to internet, Simply click Start-Connect to-Your connection. After the connection is established. Open your internet browser (normally internet explorer) and now Google will be loaded if you followed all the procedures correctly.

As a reward for my effort to this post, post your valuable comments here. And also tell other about this blog and let them appreciate you for finding a good blog. 🙂 🙂 🙂

“The aim of a joke is not degrade a human being but to remind him that he already is degraded” – George Orwell.

People like to be entertained. They enjoy laughing and appreciated a person who brings

Laugh extends life

Laugh extends life

smile to their face. They will readily accept almost everyone who make them laugh, even a shy stranger. Jokes are an icebreaker. They can introduce to a group of strangers or to boy/girl you have not previously met. They can give renew acquaintance on an upbeat note. Humour can breakdown the wall of shyness.

You wanna tell a joke? First learn the joke. Understand it. In privacy, practice by telling it aloud. Record your efforts. Listen to yourself. Practice until you’ve mastered it. But be careful to crack the joke in the appropriate occasions. Suppose, if one tells a joke on a funeral, people will laugh, but that will not be of the joke. They will laugh thinking about the foolishness of that person. 🙂

  • Know your material. Practice telling your jokes several times before telling it publically. Try it out in the shower, school bus, mirror and even while dancing. 😛
  • Is this joke right for your audience? Maybe your school buddies think your joke is good, but will your mom?
  • Be inventive. The best jokes are rich in interesting detail.

    Be creative

    Be creative

  • Original jokes are the funniest. Nothing worse than telling a joke that is embarrassing to someone.
  • The funniest jokes have a strong, unexpected conclusion. If your audience can see where you are going, you are more likely to hear a cry instead of laugh. 😛
  • Keep it short and sweet. Nothing funny about a five minute joke, unless you are a real pro. There are few people who can keep an audience’s wrapped attention for more than a minute these days.
  • Don’t use accents unless you have mastered them. Be careful.  In certain contexts, an accent in the wrong joke can be highly offensive.
  • If you don’t fully understand the joke, don’t repeat. Your audience is also less likely to understand.
  • Listen to your favorite joke tellers carefully. What element makes their joke so funny and interesting? Ask them where they get their material. After all joke telling is an art, it needs constant practice to be a good joke cracker. 🙂

1. Pay attention: Good Studying starts in class

Did you know that before you even begin studying, you’ve already started? Huh? Amazing?  🙂

Here’s what I mean. When you pay attention in class and take good notes, you are starting the process of learning and studying.

Do you have trouble paying attention in class? Are you sitting next to a loud person? Is it hard to see the board?

Make sure you’re sitting in a good seat that lets you pay attention. Tell your teacher or parents about any problems that are preventing you from paying attention and taking nice notes…

2. Good notes = Easier Studying

Note sure how to take notes? Start by writing down facts that your teacher mentions or

Complete your notes in time

Complete your notes in time

writes on the board during the class period. Try your best to use good hand writing so you can read your notes later. It’s also a good idea to keep your notes, quizzes, and papers, organized by subject.

3. Plan ahead your day

Waiting until Thursday night to study for Friday’s test will make for a homework night that’s no fun! It also makes it hard to do your best. We’re all guilty of putting off things sometimes. One of the best ways to make sure that this doesn’t happen is to plan ahead.

Take a small diary and write down your things to remember and assignment due dates. You can then plan how much to do after school each day.

4. Break it up

When there’s a lot to study, it can help to break things into chunks. Don’t feel bad if you were not able to study something in the first go. Take time and analyze what to study and reach deeper into that. If this doesn’t work then leave that topic. After you’ve finished all others, take this topic and do. Now it will surely work. Also if you are not able to remember something, then don’t worry. The more days you spend reviewing something, the more likely it is to stick into your brain. There are tricks called mnemonics which will help you remember the difficult portion. When you are trying to memorize a list of things, make up a phrase that uses the first letter of each.

For example if you are trying to learn the name of eight planets and their order from the sun then try: My very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Noodles to remember Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Pluto was excluded from this list being a dwarf planet. Maybe Pluto is crying now. 😛

Another way to break it up is to study regularly instead of just the night before. Many of us (including me :P) are waiting till the day before exam to study everything. You can always review your notes and read over the chapters you’re working on. Or, if you’re studying math or science, do some practice problems to refresh your memory.

How much studying do you do each night? Your teacher can help you figure it out. According to psychologists, the maximum time one can concentrate on one topic is 20 minutes, that too not achieved by all. So if you’ve been working for a while and find it hard to pay attention, try taking a five minutes break for some water or a walk around your house. Just fight the temptation to turn on the TV or stop working.

5. Lose the Confusion

Ask for help. You can’t study effectively if you don’t understand the material. Be sure to ask your teacher for help if you’re confused about something. Don’t feel bad to ask a doubt in the class. Because “doubts are to be cleared”.

6. Sleep Tight

So the test is tomorrow and you’ve followed you study plan – but suddenly you are

Get good sleep

Get good sleep

confused. Be sure to ask your teacher for help on something if you are confused.

Most important

Pray to God for success. Success only comes if you are blessed by God.
