Time Dilation

on Tuesday, 8 May 2007

I thought time dilation happened at relativistic speeds. Or near massive objects. So why is time dilating now?

It never fails, the last few days on campus are the longest.I tell myself," its alright!, its just four more days..". But I can swear that, that was what I told myself a long time ago! I am beginning to wonder, which frame of reference is travelling at relativistic speeds and causing time to dilate and when exactly do we change frames?Or does the Earth's orbit bring Pilani close to a blackhole every year during may and december?

The cynic in me says, "relativistic speeds? that has got to be your CGPA plummeting!"

I Agree.

"I" is Kinnera Mahankali, M.Sc. (Hons.) Physics, BITS Pilani.

I hear laughter in my head...

t Pain in your tendons---the fibrous matter that connects muscle to bone---is usually caused by a condition called tendinitis, or inflammation of the tendon. Injury or overuse leads to tendinitis, and the condition is most common in the shoulder, wrist, heel and elbow. Depending on the location of the pain, the condition can also be called tennis elbow, swimmer's shoulder or jumper's knee. Use a hot water bottle, electric blanket or microwaved moist towel for heat therapy. Resting the affected neck area to promote healing is critical. Do not participate in strenuous activities. Then check the ear hole of the helmet for any looseness or uncomfortable fit. Finally look at the front of the helmet and move it from side-to-side. The skin of the forehead should move with the helmet when you move the front.

Made from cast iron, these sturdy pots have been used to provide generations of camping enthusiasts with hot and hearty meals. A cast iron skillet is great for frying and sauteing, and is heavy enough to stand up to the extreme temperatures of a fire. Looting and Exploring. You can go deep into the wilderness in Cyrodiil, you'll find lots of creatures, dungeons, and caves to loot off of. But don't get carried away, loot too much and you'll get over-encumbered by the excess weight you are dragging around, the obvious solution is to drop the items you don't want anymore (anyone with a hoarding disorder like myself will have a hard time what to drop), like some weapons you seldom use or any cheap, unvaluable stuff. [url=http://www.cyclingcloth.com/]Cycling Cloth[/url] Just punch a row of holes around the sides of the can, 1 inch from the top and bottom, to allow air flow. Cut a 1- to 2-inch-wide wedge from the open end of the can on one side so you can poke twigs into the can when it is upside-down. Twig-stove maker Russ Mohney advises in "Mother Earth News" that you cut a rectangle instead of a wedge, fold the edge over, add a handle to the side of the can, and hang the fold-edged rectangle from it as an improvised damper. Feel these branches. If they're dry, pull them off the tree. Dig around at the foot of the tree and pull out anything that's dry. TreatmentBruising is a trauma that should be treated as an injury would, with rest, ice, compression and elevation, the RICE protocol. Elevate your calf to reduce the blood flow, which will help it heal. Applying ice will help reduce swelling and pain by constricting the blood vessels.
