Gadget Gifts For Boys

“I Love it, Thank you very much, I love you so much!!”

We sure want to hear this statement whenever we give gift to someone. But it is very hard to hear this particular statement when we give gifts to our sons or grandsons ( teenager boys). Teenager boys are rebels and they are mostly angry at parents for reasons no one can understand, but this is what teenage is all about. In this age, the boys and girls have different needs and wants and to understand them is very difficult.

Giving gifts increase love and creates emotional bonding between two persons, but to get love of teenage boys is a very difficult, as they always remain angry, but it is not impossible to please them. There are many things which teenage boys love to have, they are mostly very expensive but luckily it is end of the year and there are thousands of sales and discount offering so you can grab a very good deal and get love of your boy.

Mostly, boys love to have cool gadgets to have, almost all boys love to have cool cell phones, video games and computers. But in 2010 the gadget world was revolutionized by the introduction of tablet PCs, and now to have them is the dream of every boy.

iPad was introduced early in this year, it is a tablet PC with advanced features, like touch screen display, high quality graphics and internet browsing features, it is very cool gadget and is very famous among teenagers. Generally every gadget of Apple is hot among teenagers, as Apple is the leader in innovations and bringing new technologies in the market, and Apple’s gadgets are hot favorites of all time, so you can give it as a gift to a teenage boy and he will surely love it, as there is a big fan club of iPad, and getting one is every boys dream. Currently it is available at $ 489 but the prices will decrease sooner this year, as Apple will launch its new model iPad 2 at the mid of 2011, so keep an eye on the prices, and you can get a fantastic deal. Apart form iPad itself, there are various accessories also available so you can also buy these accessories along with. The added accessories add more fun to this gadget.

Samsung Galaxy Tab is another tablet PC, it is very hit these days and making sales record all over the world. The difference between this gadget and iPad is that it comes with the camera feature which is missing in iPad,. Galaxy Tab is very hot among teenage boys these days but it is very expensive gadget and its price is as much as $599 but you can get a good deal if you keep a constant eye on the prices, there would be sales very soon…

Tablet PCs are the hot stuff this year and iPad and Galaxy Tab are the best, so before making a buying decision make sure you compare the prices and get the best deal… These are expensive but you can get them in low prices if you are well aware of the price trends..

Extreme Celestial Magnifying Glass Detects Dim Galaxies In The Primeval Universe

The more distant a galaxy is in Space, the more ancient it is in Time. For this reason, extremely remote, ancient galaxies are usually too faint to be observed, even by astronomers using the largest and most powerful telescopes. But Nature has provided astronomers with a gift–gravitational lensing. Gravitational lenses can bend, warp, and distort streaming light in such a way that a remote object can be magnified by the gravity of a foreground object (the lens), thus making the background lensed galaxy easier for astronomers to see. In January 2018, an international team of astronomers led by Dr. Harald Ebeling from the University of Hawaii (Manoa), announced their important discovery of one of the most extreme examples of magnification of a remote object by a gravitational lens. Using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to survey a sample of vast clusters of galaxies, the team found a distant galaxy, dubbed eMACsJ1341-OG-1, that is magnified 30 times thanks to the distortion of Spacetime created by a foreground massive galaxy cluster that warps its traveling streams of light.

The term gravitational lensing itself refers to the path that traveling light has taken when it has been deflected. This occurs when the mass of an object situated in the foreground warps the light streaming out from a more remote object situated in the background. The light does not have to be visible light–it can be any form of electromagnetic radiation. As a result of gravitational lensing, light beams that would normally not have been observable are bent in such a way that their paths wander towards the observer. Conversely, light can also be bent in such a way that its beams can wander away from the observer.

There are different types of gravitational lenses: strong lenses, weak lenses, and microlenses. The differences that exist between the three forms of gravitational lenses has to do with the position of the background object that is emitting the light, the foreground lens that is bending the light, and the position of the observer–as well as the shape and mass of the foreground lens. The foreground object determines how much of the background object’s light will be warped, as well as where this light will wander on its path through Spacetime.

The Cosmos that we observe today sparkles with the fabulous flames of billions and billions of stars that populate the more than 100 billion galaxies inhabiting the relatively small part of the Universe that we are able to observe. We cannot observe whatever may exist beyond the cosmological horizon–or edge–of the observable Universe because light streaming out from luminous objects, inhabiting those unimaginably distant regions, has not had enough time to reach us since the Big Bang. This is because of the expansion of the Universe. The speed of light–the universal speed limit–has made it impossible for us to observe what may exist beyond the cosmological horizon of our visibility. When we look deep into Space, we look back in Time. This is because the more remote a shining object is in Space, the longer it has taken for its light to reach us.

No known signal in the Universe can travel faster than light in a vacuum, and the light flowing out from remote celestial objects cannot travel to us faster than this universal speed limit will permit. It is impossible to locate an object in Space without also locating it in Time. Hence, the term Spacetime. Time is the fourth dimension. The three spatial dimensions that characterize our familiar world are back-and-forth, side-to-side, and up-and-down.

Gravitational lensing was predicted by Albert Einstein in his Theory of General Relativity (1915), and has since been observed many times by astronomers. Einstein’s first theory of Relativity, the Special Theory of Relativity (1905), describes a Spacetime that is frequently likened to an artist’s canvas. The artist paints points and lines on this canvas which represents the stage where the universal drama is being played–and not the drama itself. The great achievement uniting the stage with the drama came a decade later with the Theory of General Relativity–where Space becomes a star in the universal drama itself. Space tells mass how to move, and mass tells space how to curve. Spacetime is as elastic as a child’s backyard trampoline. Imagine a little girl tossing a heavy bowling ball onto the trampoline. The ball represents a heavy mass, like that of a star. It creates a dimple–or a “gravitational well”–in the stretchy elastic fabric of the trampoline. Now, if the little girl then throws a handful of marbles onto the trampoline, they will wander down curved paths around the “star”–as if they were planets in orbit around a real star. If the bowling ball is then removed, the marbles will take straight paths, instead of curved ones. The marbles–or “planets”–travel according to the more massive “star’s” warpage of the flexible fabric of the trampoline, which represents Spacetime. The stage and the drama are united. The drama will continue until the show’s final curtain.

The first gravitational lens was discovered in 1979, and today lensing gives astronomers a remarkable view of the extremely dim Universe soon after its mysterious birth. Gravitational lensing was first validated during a solar eclipse in 1919, when background stars were seen to be offset in exactly the way that Albert Einstein had predicted. Astronomers now use these celestial magnifying glasses to learn about distant objects that would otherwise be so faint that they would almost be invisible. Indeed, remote and ancient galaxies may well reveal to astronomers a treasure trove of information about our own Milky Way Galaxy. These distortions of Spacetime caused by massive objects closer to Earth can be used by astronomers to study nearby stars and their retinues of planets.

Extreme Celestial Magnifying Glass Detects Dim Galaxies In The Primeval Universe

Gravitational lensing can dramatically magnify remote celestial sources in the primeval Universe, just so long as there is a sufficiently massive foreground object situated between the background source and the prying eyes of curious astronomers.

Clusters of galaxies are vast concentrations of dark matter and searing-hot gas surrounding hundreds–or even thousands–of individual galaxies. All of the constituent galaxies belonging to a cluster are linked together by their mutual gravitational attraction. These clusters are of great value to astronomers because they serve as powerful gravitational lenses. By functioning as magnifying glasses for faint objects that would otherwise be hidden behind them, massive galaxy clusters can serve as natural telescopes that enable astronomers to study objects long ago and far away in Spacetime–sources that would otherwise be beyond the reach of telescopes.

Dark matter is a ghostly and invisible form of matter that is thought to be composed of exotic non-atomic particles that do not interact with light or any other form of electromagnetic radiation–which is why it is transparent. The weird dark matter is much more abundant than the misnamed “ordinary” atomic matter that makes up our familiar world–the world that we can see. The so-called “ordinary” atomic matter is the stuff of stars, planets, moons, and people, and it accounts for literally all of the elements listed in the Periodic Table.

There is a picture depicting the quiescent galaxy eMACSJ1341, as captured by the HST. The picture shows a yellow dotted line that traces the boundaries of the galaxy’s gravitationally lensed image. An inset on the upper left of the image shows what eMACSJ1341 would look like if it were observed directly, without the invaluable aid of the foreground cluster lens. A very dramatic amplification and distortion caused by the intervening massive galaxy cluster can readily be seen.

Quiescent galaxies are those in which star-birth has all but ceased entirely. Therefore, quiescent galaxies represent the final phase of galaxy evolution. This is what makes eMACSJ1341 intriguingly unusual. Galaxies that are as ancient and remote as eMACSJ1341 is are usually youthful enough not to have depleted their supply of star-birthing gas. For this reason, learning about why eMACSJ1341 has stopped producing new baby stars has become a significant scientific quest.

Dr. Ebeling and his colleagues, working with the data obtained from HST, are continuing their research using both the HST data and ground-based instruments. The astronomers are conducting further analysis of the lens model, removing distortions from the magnified image.

“The very high magnification of the image provides us with a rare opportunity to investigate the stellar populations of the distant object and, ultimately, to reconstruct the undistorted shape and properties,” commented study team member Dr. Johan Richard in a January 31, 2018 University of Hawaii Press Release. Dr. Richard, who performed the lensing calculations, is of the University of Lyon in France.

Even though similarly extreme gravitational magnifications have been observed previously, this discovery sets a new record for the magnification of a rare quiescent galaxy. Dr. Ebeling explained in a January 31, 2018 University of Hawaii Press Release that “We specialize in finding extremely massive clusters that act as natural telescopes and have already discovered many exciting cases of gravitational lensing. This discovery stands out though, as the huge magnification provided by eMACJ1341 allows us to study in detail a very rare type of galaxy.”

Representing the final phase of galaxy evolution, quiescent galaxies are an abundant population in the local Universe. “However, as we look at more distant galaxies, we are also looking back in time, so we are seeing objects that are young and should not yet have used up their gas supply. Understanding why this galaxy has already stopped forming stars may give us critical clues about the processes that govern how galaxies evolve,” explained Dr. Mikkel Stockmann, a study team member from the University of Copenhagen, and an expert in galaxy evolution.

Additional follow-up observations of eMACJ1341 are currently in progress by astronomers using telescopes in Chile and Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Details of the study are published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Mylin – American Girl with a Great American Story

Sensational singer, songwriter Mylin is a great American story. Mylin’s fifth album, aptly titled American Girl, express her heartfelt story. The title track, “American Girl,” is Mylin’s autobiography, an uplifting, empowering anthem.

Born in the Philippines to a father in the U.S. Navy and a Filipino mother, Mylin’s father was pressured to return to the U.S. without she and her mother. Months later, the day Mylin’s 18 y/o father was to ship out, he got into a motorcycle accident. Badly injured in the hospital, he decided he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life without Mylin and her mother. They married in the Philippines. Baby Mylin and her mom were flown back to the U.S. in a C-130 military cargo plane, carrying the bodies of deceased U.S. soldiers. The trip took a week and a half. Mylin calls it “the 1st intervention of God” keeping her parents together.

Mylin accepted Christ at the tender age of 7 and later rededicated her life to the Lord at age 14, just before she was handpicked by Disney, out of tens of thousands of kids across the U.S., to star on the hit television show, and pop-star breeding ground, The Mickey Mouse Club (Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera). After three years starring on the show (which was like the American Idol of today), Mylin was pursued by major U.S. and foreign labels.

At age 18, while living in New York, Mylin got involved with what she thought to be a church, which later proved to be a cult. Mylin’s parents (who live in FL) drove up to New York to rescue her from that ordeal and brought her home. It was during this time that Mylin grew in her understanding of salvation by grace, after which her burden lifted.

Mylin was sworn in as a U.S. citizen and signed her first record deal with Avex, Inc., one of Japan’s major labels. Mylin spent the next four years touring Japan and Southeast Asia, releasing four albums, including a Greatest Hits recording. She sold over 80,000 albums, and was included on over 50 compilation albums, selling over 1 million copies. She topped many international charts, sharing chart space with everyone from Alanis Morissette, Mariah Carey, U2, Sheryl Crow, and Madonna, to Janet Jackson, Linkin Park, and Destiny’s Child. Whether she’s putting smiles on faces across Japan and Korea, or singing the national anthem at Major League Baseball and NBA games, Mylin’s velvety vocals stir hearts and ignite the passion of patriotism.

As the woman within and artist matured, Mylin who plays the guitar and piano, decided she wanted to put pen to paper and take time to express her story, on her terms. Purposing not to compare herself with others, Mylin, finding her security in the Lord, fearlessly began writing songs.

Mylin’s trust and willingness to follow God has greatly paid off as she’s blossomed into a great entertainer. Her shows have included the Celebrity Theater in Las Vegas, the Key Club at Morongo Casino, Crossroads at the House of Blues in Las Vegas, a show with Beth Hart at Hollywood’s The Knitting Factory, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, and joining Nick Lachey for some shows on his tour, including a 10,000 seat amphitheatre in Georgia and New York City’s Nokia Theatre in Times Square.

Due to Mylin’s story and the patriotic nature of the title track, and most popular song on her album, “American Girl,” she also played a recent show with Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band at the Galaxy Theatre in Orange County, California, and has played six shows at military bases over the last eight months. Mylin has many fans throughout the million-strong U.S. military, who reach out to her from bases around the world, including Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mylin says performing at the military bases is both “heart-warming and heart-breaking” considering the very young married men and their families separated by extensive tours of military duty. Mylin always honors and supports our troops, telling them: “I’m grateful for your sacrifice.” Mylin used 3 female Marines from Camp Pendleton (all of whom have been to Iraq) in her American Girl music video. Mylin patriotically says, “We at this time as a nation need to be united.”

Mylin’s musical platform has enabled her to encourage many military soldiers and families, young girls, and people who write her daily. Mylin lovingly encourages young ladies, “You don’t have to dress or be a certain way to impress people. Being secure in Christ is enough.”

No stranger to life’s difficulties and pain, Mylin wisely says: “Life is not perfect, nor free from challenges. Tough and challenging times often are our best moments as God works it out, brings you through, and forms character in you.” Mylin purposefully transcends pain to locate God’s plan. She says, “God’s will is not always 100% what we want, but as we pray and obediently accept it, we can be at peace and content. It’s about following Him and living as Christ would want us to.”

“People have to feel it,” she says. “They have to know you believe what you’re saying. That’s when there’s a connection with the audience.” Mylin has a deep connection with her Creator, which causes her to be congruent in herself and authentic as a performer. Mylin says, “I’d go crazy in the entertainment industry without Jesus.”

Mylin unashamedly acknowledges her faith in Jesus as being most important, which enables her to be who she is and where she is in her career. Her husband and family, along with her local church, provide for Mylin the necessary encouragement and accountability she needs to stay straight spiritually and stable in the music industry.

Mylin is a world-class live performer with eternity beating in her heart as she pours all of her energy and emotion into every show. Realizing life is short, that we’re “here today and gone tomorrow” (as told in her song Mist), Mylin is making a difference through her music and reconnecting our country to its Creator.
