Not many days ago , we saw another scene like this in Kansat. Before them , Another one. What is this all about ? People want their electricity , Fertilizer and was shot at spot. Can you imagine , you voted a party , they formed govt ,you just want your basic need and lose your life.

Sounds ridiculous ….huh ?? But this is the fact.

This time people protested against a company named ASIA energy. In a democratic country,its their right to protest against any decision they differ. Lets think , people were wrong. They got it wrong and shouted for a wrong idea. What could police and BDR do ? They could charge them with stick , throw tear shells and and other things [as they did always].

But what they did ?

They Killed 6 persons !! can they bring back 6 dead persons their lives ? I guess NO. Then how could they get the right to “KILL” a human. Do they know How much a human life worth?

NO . Neither of those ill mannered , less – educated polices and BDRs and their over head non-educated , over smart , spiky haired ministers know how much important a human life is. Its our bad luck we were born in a country like Bangladesh Where we have not any single privileges what is available for Wild Animals in foreign countries. Our rulers know how to make money , how to insult humanity. Nothing more than that.

Things are changing. I am looking foroward for those days, when wind will blow on the other side of the fence.

PRAGUE, Czech Republic – Pluto, beloved by some as a cosmic underdog but scorned by astronomers who considered it too dinky and distant, was unceremoniously stripped of its status as a planet Thursday.

The International Astronomical Union, dramatically reversing course just a week after floating the idea of reaffirming Pluto’s planethood and adding three new planets to Earth’s neighborhood, downgraded the ninth rock from the sun in historic new galactic guidelines.

The shift will have the world’s teachers scrambling to alter lesson plans just as schools open for the fall term.

“It will all take some explanation, but it is really just a reclassification and I can’t see that it will cause any problems,” said Neil Crumpton, who teaches science at a high school north of London. “Science is an evolving subject and always will be.”

Powerful new telescopes, experts said, are changing the way they size up the mysteries of the solar system and beyond. But the scientists at the conference showed a soft side, waving plush toys of the Walt Disney character Pluto the dog — and insisting that Pluto’s spirit will live on in the exciting discoveries yet to come.

“The word ‘planet’ and the idea of planets can be emotional because they’re something we learn as children,” said Richard Binzel, a professor of planetary science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who helped hammer out the new definition.

“This is really all about science, which is all about getting new facts,” he said. “Science has marched on. … Many more Plutos wait to be discovered.”

Pluto, a planet since 1930, got the boot because it didn’t meet the new rules, which say a planet not only must orbit the sun and be large enough to assume a nearly round shape, but must “clear the neighborhood around its orbit.” That disqualifies Pluto, whose oblong orbit overlaps Neptune’s, downsizing the solar system to eight planets from the traditional nine.

Astronomers have labored without a universal definition of a planet since well before the time of Copernicus, who proved that the Earth revolves around the sun, and the experts gathered in Prague burst into applause when the guidelines were passed.

Predictably, Pluto’s demotion provoked plenty of wistful nostalgia.

“It’s disappointing in a way, and confusing,” said Patricia Tombaugh, the 93-year-old widow of Pluto discoverer Clyde Tombaugh.

“I don’t know just how you handle it. It kind of sounds like I just lost my job,” she said from Las Cruces, N.M. “But I understand science is not something that just sits there. It goes on. Clyde finally said before he died, ‘It’s there. Whatever it is. It is there.'”

The decision by the IAU, the official arbiter of heavenly objects, restricts membership in the elite cosmic club to the eight classical planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

Pluto and objects like it will be known as “dwarf planets,” which raised some thorny questions about semantics: If a raincoat is still a coat, and a cell phone is still a phone, why isn’t a dwarf planet still a planet?

NASA said Pluto’s downgrade would not affect its $700 million New Horizons spacecraft mission, which this year began a 9 1/2-year journey to the oddball object to unearth more of its secrets.

But mission head Alan Stern said he was “embarrassed” by Pluto’s undoing and predicted that Thursday’s vote would not end the debate. Although 2,500 astronomers from 75 nations attended the conference, only about 300 showed up to vote.

“It’s a sloppy definition. It’s bad science,” he said. “It ain’t over.”

Under the new rules, two of the three objects that came tantalizingly close to planethood will join Pluto as dwarfs: the asteroid Ceres, which was a planet in the 1800s before it got demoted, and 2003 UB313, an icy object slightly larger than Pluto whose discoverer, Michael Brown of the California Institute of Technology, has nicknamed “Xena.” The third object, Pluto’s largest moon, Charon, isn’t in line for any special designation.

Brown, whose Xena find rekindled calls for Pluto’s demise because it showed it isn’t nearly as unique as it once seemed, waxed philosophical.

“Eight is enough,” he said, jokingly adding: “I may go down in history as the guy who killed Pluto.”

Demoting the icy orb named for the Roman god of the underworld isn’t personal — it’s just business — said Jack Horkheimer, director of the Miami Space Transit Planetarium and host of the PBS show “Star Gazer.”

“It’s like an amicable divorce,” he said. “The legal status has changed but the person really hasn’t. It’s just single again.”

Recently I have seen an article in daily star . I m giving you the link

Read the report

Actually , I have read this report in all other prominent dailes.Its about Bangladesh cricket team and their coach.

This is a very old debate.Every time we get a new coach,our media is just so much happy about him. After some days,we start to fail in missions and blame goes on to coach. I cant remember any coach without Barlo who couldnt leave with respect. Barlo,did,because I guess he had to resign before his term ending due to paralysis.If he could continue, I guess, Just the “villain coach list” would be extended.

Just think one thing. Dave (our recent coach) is an internationally famous and accepted coach. Srilanka came such a long way in his coaching.Then why we are failed to improve ourself ? Lets say, Dave is the culprit. But what about other coaches? Why we have to hear every time that ” coach is arrogant,hes not with the players” ?

I think problem is in our structure. Its very clear that ,our players are talented but they have lack of commitment. After watching Ashrafuls batting , can you say that hes playing international cricket for a standard period of time and hes the main batsman of our country !! As a viewer and supporter,this bothers me too much. Then its beyond question that , how much it hurts coach each time they failed. Theres a word named gradually. Everybody shift to their better play gradually.But its us ,very much inconsistent. We can win a game by scroing 250 (very rare ..huh ? ) but we can also lose a game by unable to chase 200. well, you can say , in cricket there are lots of unpredictibility. But , I dont know why , banladesh have to be the vicitim of this unpredictibility each time.

Beside that,sometimes we heard that Team management and govt bodies are creating pressure to give a chance to “their boyz”. Even i have seen it just some days ago. Mushfiqur Rahim, a total novice wicket keeper is placed in the main 11 instead of Pilot.

so , everything is inter related.I dont thing nepotism doesnt give a better enviroment of work to coach. So,each time before blaming coach , we have to look at ourselves.

Its easy to blame others but better to rectify our-self.

Shamsur Rahaman,one of the greatest poets in the history of Bengali literature is passed away.Actually he was ill for a long time. Different organs of his body was gradually damaged.After a long pain , he went away.

Who is Shamsur Rahaman ? He was the best poet in Bangladesh , one of the best poets in Bengali literature. You can watch halley’s comet in 86 years but you cant assure you can get such a poet in 1000 years.His language , His expression , His courage, His bravery everything was such a  inspiration to us.

But what we did for him ?

We love him very much. There were huge people in his funeral. So,its undoubtedly sure that,mass people love him , respect him. But what our govt did ? didn’t they have responsibility to show some gratitude and respect to poet ? Why he was not flied abroad for better treatment ? Why Govt did not care to show him national respect ?

well, Poet has not lose anything. He is still alive in all cosmopolitan and true bangalis hearts. But this shame is for our govt,our nation. They did not give national respect. That did not make any difference to poet or his impression.But it did severe damage to our nations impression.

So, poet, wherever you are , please forgive us .
