Mobile phones and WiFi radiation health risks

There have been many skeptics since the very initial introduction of wireless service about what the constant exposure to radiation can do to human health and the nature surrounding it.

While the world is bracing for the launch of 5G services the question of the health risks looms large.

The result of the extensive study that was conducted by the National Institutes of Health, US was inconclusive. The 10 year study was conducted using 2G and 3G wireless radiation exposure on animals for 9 hours each day. While it did show the increased risk of mutation leading to the growth of tumors or tissue and DNA damage in a group of rodents, another group did not show any evident health issues related to the exposure.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has cited exposure to radiation as a potent carcinogen for humans. It means that long term exposure to radiations could result in extensive damage.

But here is something to think about. The studies were conducted on animals that were expo…

Exception Handling and Use of Cursors in PL/SQL Blocks

SQL is a non procedural language and so cannot do processing of either the data used to formulate the query or process the query. For example a SQL query cannot be placed in a loop or a dynamic SQL statement cannot be constructed by just using SQL alone. One requires a procedural language extension to perform some select data processing tasks in addition to DML capabilities offered bySQL statements. PL/SQL is the procedural language extension of SQL

Exception in SQL queries can occur when a Not Found condition or when a duplicate record found occurs. A Not Found condition occurs when a select query does not find any records as per the specified criterion. For example a select statement with a where clause need not always return records. This amounts to a NOTFOUND condition and is handled in a PL/SQL block. A PL/SQL block has a declare, begin, exception and end. So when a NOTFOUND condition occurs it has to be handled as an Exception in the PL/SQL block.Similarly when a SQL statement re…

Open Database Connectivity

ODBC or Open Database Connectivity is an open standard application programming interface used for accessing hetrogenous datasources.

Imagine you have written several PHP programs which makes a connection to an Oracle database. For some reason now you have decided to use MYSQL instead of Oracle.

Why Big Companies Prefer to Hire Fresh Graduates Instead of Experienced Professionals

The only thing that matters is profit. Here are the 5 reasons to hire fresh graduates over experienced applicants.

Lowering costs: This is one of the primary reasons why most of the companies hire fresh graduates. On an average, fresh graduates cost 20-40% less than an experienced individual. I am not saying to hire them just because they are cheap; there are various other cost benefits for hiring graduates. For example: You don't have to spend thousands of dollars in the talent search program. You can partner with some of the local universities in your areas, and take benefit of their career center, which will be more than happy to find out a talent match for you. Or you can participate in Career Fairs of few schools and interview people right there and then. This will also reduce all the traveling and lodging costs, which you might end up paying for inviting an experienced person for an interview.

Easy to train: Imagine, if you hire an experienced professional, who seems to provid…

Roses Are Red, But Are Violets Really Blue?

Well, maybe not. In today's Tech world, what seems to be may not be.

Phishing, credit card fraud, email scams, all have become very sophisticated for sure.

An example, I just listed my Note 5 on Amazon seller account, within minutes I had a buyer-until I read the response:

Does this sound like something Amazon would write?

Quote: "we hereby inform you that order have been completed for your item and payment have been received from buyer by us on your behalf. An additional 50 for shipping has been added. You can now go ahead and ship item and get back to us with shipping tracking number for shipment verification in other to transfer your payment into your account".

The Dramatic Downside of Home Decor Ideas in Movies

Movie sets make all kinds of fantastic home d�cor ideas seem possible, but many of these ideas would have major downsides in real life.

Willy Wonka's Chocolate FactoryThe chocolate factory is a big inspiration to kids everywhere. The pre-teen audience salivates at the sight of the chocolate river, teacup flowers, and trees with balloon-like candy fruit. Who wouldn't want a gigantic room where everything is edible? A reasonable adult with foresight-that's who wouldn't want the biohazard of such a playspace. First, there's the impossible task of fending off insects and replacing expired candy trees. Secondly, inviting any guests to enjoy would be as biologically risky as sharing a lollipop with a group of friends. The only adult who would be interested in a room or house of candy is the witch in Hansel and Gretel.

Bad Service Can Ruin Your Restaurant's Reputation

During the holidays I enjoyed the time off with some surf, sea and sand. As like most people on holiday, I love spending time with special people at wonderful restaurants. Most of the restaurants I went to knew what they were doing and their waitrons were on the ball. I commend such good customer service. However, there was this one restaurant that I went to that did not offer such a good customer experience. Bad service can give a restaurant a bad name.

Let me share my experience with you.
My companions and I decided to have breakfast at the beach. This particular restaurant is ideally situated on the beach, just a few metres from the sea so you can imagine the beautiful view we were looking forward to. While waiting in the queue to be seated, we were promptly informed that we needed to wait a bit. Once we were seated it took quite some time for our waitron to welcome us and provide us with the menus. When she did show up she advised that the restaurant is very busy and breakfast will …
