Robots for Revolution: The Automata

Technology knows no limits. Man has ascended from the life of the caves and wood fires to microchips and computers, all created to assist men and make his life easier by every second. Perhaps the height of technology so far is the robots; an everyday luxury in Japan, and a fantasy for those who live in third world countries, robots survive on electricity, their metallic bodies obeying the commands fed into their system with an efficiency hard to match. They are like your assistants, only they are not made of flesh and soul, rather of metals and cogwheels and wires.

A step ahead of the robots, and we come to what the scientists call the “automata”. Automata are self-operators; to put more precisely, self operating, and independent robots. The idea became popular ages ago in the Hellenistic World, first intended for toys and religious idols. Greek mythology represented this idea in the story of Daedalus, when he used quicksilver to make his statue speak. The idea might have been a fantasy at those times, and ridiculed and jeered upon by all; but fantasies are, after all, based on imaginations conjured by the brains, and brains do exist. So, believing that fantasies also exist, automata were created, though they have not been used as widely as the idea has travelled.

Coming to the medieval times, automata were seen among the richer: kings had metallic birds and flute players and guards to open and close the gates. With the Renaissance is sweeping over the world, the outlook shifted a little. Automata appeared in drawings of DA Vinci, a form that was more complex than before, and Descartes claimed living bodies to be analogous to machines: replace bones and muscles with metal and you recreate a living thing without a soul and the need to breathe and eat. Thus the toys appeared: birds and animals that walk and flap their wings and bark and roar, with, of course, highly limited abilities. Chess player machine, “The Turk” followed and horizons expanded. Clocks with cuckoos and various accessories became popular. Soon, the modern times were upon us, and things again shifted a little.

The era spanning from 1860 to 1910 was the era of the automatons. It has been labeled as the “Golden Age of the Automata”. It was the time when the market boom began, and automatons began to get heavily commercialized. Magicians used them on stage shows. Paris and France earned nickels and galleons by selling clock work and birds perched on them, and companies flourished like flowers in the bloom. Thus, the idea spread like wildfire, and Japan went further than the rest of the world to create robots that would serve the guests and do the cleaning and could write and draw. What was once a fantasy had become a reality.

The automata represent a portion of technology where we humans are overshadowed by our own inventions. We create them, we use them, yet we cannot reach the perfection of their work. Automata are a man’s skill and talent at heights no one could have ever imagined.

WordPress- A Complete Overview

There was a time a couple of years back when the only source of focus of most of the internet users was social networking sites. Mostly to say Orkut and Facebook. The only places where people could bring out their creativity, which was not so much of the creativity, in fact people liked to portray things about their lives, what they do their likes and interactions. This all kind of seems very attractive but the fact is that it is basically very superficial. If somebody wants to have his or her creativity reach to a commendable level not for his own personal self but for the readers and viewers, WordPress is the place to be. It is not just a blogging site, it is a place where people express their various talents and at the same time amuse from the skills and talents of others as well.

Anybody who has been ever afraid of bringing out his or her writing, poetry, photography, videoing skills, can use WordPress as an excellent tool. The blog is not just a means of expressing oneself but it has this kind of privacy and anonymity that is lacked by social networking sites. One can always have a blog address that is by no means an indicator of his own self and a blog name of his or her own choice.

The part about privacy does not just ends here; it has this thing that one can very technically choose the followers. One has a bit clever in advertising the blog address. If the will is to make it a hit among the friends and acquaintances of real life, then help can always be taken from the networking social websites. However if someone wants first to explore one’s qualities, and keep it a secret from those friends real to life, then the traffic can be well and appropriately channeled. Make it public at places where people do not know. Anyways next comes the followers. Everybody who goes through the trouble of making a blog and updating it wants to have a certain number of people to follow it. People will not simply start searching for your blog and following it, you will have to work hard on it. The kind of circles you want to be followed in, go and visit their blogs, follow them and they will feel tempted to follow yours.

Other interesting features of WordPress is the theme, the base on which the whole foundation of your blog is standing and it must confirm with the content of the blog. With the advancement of web designers and software engineer designers, the whole concept of time designing has reached a certain level. One gets to see a wide array of themes to choose from, their amazing patterns and color schemes, decorating and complimenting your way to a suiting content.

Photographs and videos are even cooler aspects. With a beautiful theme and a background, both simple and instagrammed photographs aren’t just pleasing the followers but also help in earning good for the monetized blogs.

How to Make Donuts

Family time is a very important thing. If you are a mother with a young child, then finding great at-home activities to do together is a major topic of interest. Teaching your child to cook is fun for you both. And you get to enjoy the results. Here’s a great recipe for how to make donuts at home with just biscuit dough.

Ingredients:

When you are deciding how to make donuts, you will need a few items. First of all, you need a deep pan or fryer. It has to be deep, though. You will need oil as well. If possible, use Canola oil. Then you, of course, need donuts. Usually, a roll of biscuits will make about ten donuts or more donut holes. It’s up to you and your kids how many you want to make. The store brand of biscuits works just fine. Last, there are the toppings. You can let your kids pick whatever they want to go on top of the donuts. Don’t forget the sprinkles!

Preparation:

You and your kids can both do this. If you want donut holes, then you can simply cut the biscuits up and let your kids roll them into balls. If you want regular donuts, let them punch the centers out with their thumbs. It may not look perfect, but they will taste just the same in the end. And, of course, it will be fun.

Fry the donuts.

You should do this step instead of your children. Heat up the oil. Make sure it is not too hot and drop the donuts in, a few at a time, depending on the size. Make sure they have enough time to float around. Cook them until golden brown on each side. Flip them over to check this. When they are done, pull them out and lay them on a paper towel to let the grease run off.

Put on the toppings.

Now it is time for the toppings. There are so many toppings to choose from. If you went with powdered sugar, don’t let all the grease run off the donuts and roll them in the powdered sugar. When they are completely coated, you can let them cool off the rest of the way. Powdered sugar is a very popular donut topping.

If your children chose frosting, as many do, let them frost their own donuts however they like. Give them a butter knife and let them make a mess. They can put their own sprinkles on, too. Let them be creative; just don’t do this before bed time or naptime, because it can cause a sugar rush.

Enjoy!

The last step is to eat the donuts. You will enjoy this delicious snack as much as your children will. And they will have enjoyed the time spent with you helping make them. This is probably the best of the entire process of learning how to make donuts at home.

Teaching your children how to make donuts at home out of biscuit dough is a simple, but great activity that you and your children will enjoy. And they taste great!
