Microchip used for tampering with petrol pumps in Lucknow

The biggest disadvantage of using any electronics device is that it can be manipulated/hacked remotely. For example the design of the petrol pumps is not easily available like the electronic voting machine, yet it appears that devices have been developed for manipulating the petrol pumps according to media reports . The chip is installed at the petrol dispensing pumps and can be manipulated using a remote control by the petrol pump staff, operators. When a customer will pay for 1 l, 1000 ml of petrol , the device will manipulated the dispensing petrol pump so that only 950 ml petrol will be delivered.
Most car and other vehicle owners do not bother to check the exact volume of petrol which has dispensed by the petrol pump, allowing the petrol pump or at least its employees to make a good profit as the petrol not dispensed can be sold later, twice. Allegedly the chip has been detected at 7 petrol pumps in Lucknow, and the gang who installed it are claiming that it was installed on at least 1000 petrol pumps
This highlights that even sophisticated devices like petrol pumps can be easily manipulated by those who understand electronics well enough, without being detected.

Demonetization affecting electronics prices

Electronics prices have increased drastically after demonetization, indicating that black money played an important role in the indian economy. In fact the prices of almost all items of daily use like rice, clothes, have increased by 10-15% after demonetization, however the increase in electronic items prices have increased more far more rapidly compared to other items, with pen drive prices increasing by 50-70% for 8 gb pen drives , making them unaffordable for the indian citizen.
The foreign exchange rate of the dollar against the indian rupee has declined rapidly , however surprisingly the price of electronics, which is imported has increased rapidly . usually when exchange rate improves, the prices will decline, however in 2017, the prices are increasing
Only paper prices have decreased rapidly in 2017
Any information about the secret of rapidly increasing electronics prices will be greatly appreciated.

Election commission EVM hacking challenge not likely to be successful

Facing complaints the election commission has said that anyone can try to hack the electronic voting machine during a specified period in May 2017. However it is extremely unlikely that the opposition will be able to find any flaws in the EVM during the challenge period due to a number of reasons.
One of the main reasons is that indian opposition parties like AAP, BSP, Samajwadi party do not have a very good understanding of electronics at the senior level, they have not consulted any person who has practical experience in designing and developing electronic items like the EVM . Most indian citizens are not trained engineers, and even fewer citizens are experienced engineers who have developed electronic systems which are actually working. The opposition parties are not willing to accept the fact that they lack expertise and get the necessary help.
The second reason why the machines will not be hacked, is because the manipulation is likely to be due to poor quality control and systems by the election commission, when they are actually preparing the machines for election . The opposition is targetting the machines, when actually the manufacturing systems can be easily manipulated to favor a particular party

No takers for digital correction system

Running any online system is fairly complicated and difficult, which most people, especially the dishonest corrupt ntro, cbi employees refuse to admit, falsely claiming that an eighth standard pass housewife can manage complex systems.
In Maharastra , the government wanted digital correction of answer papers, they floated a tender, however those with experience, understood the problem and no one bid for the tender. The government again floated the tender, however the second time also , there was only 1 bidder. According to rules a winner bidder can be only selected when there are at least 3 bidders
It remains difficult to develop a tamper and hacker proof online system , electronics can be easily hacked, no one wishes to take the risk

Things Made of Plastic Make the World Go Round

The volume of objects that are really made doable due to injection molding training are generally legion. They tend to be the goods that complete each of our personal worlds, the items most people take for granted and barely ponder on, until eventually we need them. Things such as toothbrushes, personal computer key boards along with monitor cases, each of our non-stick kitchen area spoons, hangers for coats, baby bottles and also pencil boxes. The volume of things that are constructed of plastic material that we implement on a daily basis, if detailed 1 by 1 may possibly stretch to the moon and back. And those are merely the actual sole being products! That is definitely prior to you possibly begin about the numerous little components that tend to define more substantial things, the gears and also rings along with heads plus finuals.

No person wants to see a world again that is without scientific molding, for actually even though most don’t know exactly what scientific molding involves, a world devoid of it seems to be much like the world felt 100 years or even more ago. In case you had leftovers, you’d put them right into a container manufactured from metal, or perhaps glass. Combs were made involving metal. Baby bottles were available in glass/metal Home appliances were produced of metal and were heavy as lead. If perhaps anyone got sick and tired of utilizing items created from glass and also metal, you acquired a selection of those handmade coming from natural products, such as reeds along with grasses, those made by potters, or even carved through solid wood. Animal skin were definitely available, in addition. Therefore, plainly, the value of plastics inside our modern day culture can’t be accentuated enough!

Plastics are manufactured from melted plastic and shaped with specific machinery with factories that happen to be attended to by individuals who are taught in techniques like injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. They obtain the training which allows them to next create the goods we use each day by means of participating in injection molding seminars. Most of these workshops are offered via firms similar to Paulson Training Programs (www.paulsontraining.com), and also they are really the key reason why right now we percieve such conformity within the plastic-type material items we all purchase. These types of informative prospects produce a top class staff that is definitely in a position to man the particular production facilities which produce the things we all apply, enjoy and enjoy, and which seriously, we may find tough to do without.

Malfunctioning EVM in Bhind, MP

The media reported that when the election commission was giving a demo of the EVM in Bhind , MP , the printer linked to the EVM started printing BJP votes whichever button was pressed. As expected the opposition, led by AAP, created a lot of noise about the manipulation and tampering of the EVM, however other than suspending the officials involved, the election commission took no action.
Any engineer who has done any kind of microcontroller based programming is aware of the fact that any electronic device can be easily tampered , just changing the wiring or programming or even the sticker can change the results drastically
It appears that no major opposition leader in India has a degree in electronics and has done any microcontroller programmer so they are only making vague allegations without any concrete proof, and the election commission is also giving equally vague replies.
