Serious Health Hazards and Tips on Handling Currency Notes

December 14, 2010 5 comments

Money has become integral part of our life. With out Money we can’t live. Irrespective of its form coins or paper notes, money exchanges several hands every day. There are hundreds of activities which a person performs from the moment he wakes up in the morning till he goes to sleep at night. It can be with a Professional or a Beggar; it can be with a Doctor or a patient. We use money in our every day life; we purchase groceries from a local store, we donate to a temple, we give it to a beggar etc. Money can be exchanged from clean hands to dirty hands and vice versa aka healthy life to infection life.

When people count currency notes they usually wet their fingers with their saliva produced in the mouth thinking it will make them easy to count but with this method currency notes can be infected with virus and microorganisms the person has. When it moves to a different hand the virus is carried in the currency notes. The Person will again wet is finger from his mouth to count the notes where the virus or microorganisms can transfer to his mouth very easily.

E.g. Person who adds petrol to your vehicle would have touched petrol and other harmful chemicals in the petrol bunk and with the bare hands he gives the change (currency notes) to you. People count this infected notes by wetting their fingers from their mouth which can easily transfer the bacteria to your body.

Imagine the currency notes you have might have travelled through out the country and has been exchanged from many hands. Contamination from the anal region, wounds, nasal secretions & aerosols generated by sneezing & coughing are potential sources of transfer of microorganisms to currency notes during handling and this contaminated notes which has virus can be easily transferred to your mouth if you wet your fingers from your mouth saliva to count the notes.

Some research shows that Indian banknotes has germs which can cause Tuberculosis, meningitis, tonsillitis, peptic ulcers, throat infections, genital tract infections etc. The bugs from banknotes infect the body through scratches on the hands or when the hand touches the mouth or nose.

I suggest public to be careful and take some precautions in handling money 

  • Wash your hands cleanly after you do money transactions using physical notes.
  • Avoid keeping money in brassieres, handkerchiefs and in shoes.
  • Currency notes can be disinfected by regular exposing of contaminated notes to U.V. rays or fumigation. Suggest and educate this to the people around you.

October 29, 2010 13 comments

This Year Diwali is celebrated on 5th November 2010 Friday. I Hope many of you are prepared to celebrate Diwali with family and friends. This article tries to sensitize the readers towards celebrating an environmentally safe Diwali by pointing out the major impacts that Diwali has on our environment and your health.

Diwali is known as the ‘festival of lights’. Diyas (clay lamps) are lit to chase away the darkness of ignorance and welcome the bright light of enlightenment. Many of the cases we are not bothered about our environment and take risks about your own safety.

We should celebrate True Diwali in traditional styles with out giving up joy and happiness. Lets us follow the below simple tips celebrate a safe and eco friendly Diwali.

Let’s Explode Joy without Crackers
For many of us burning crackers and making sounds is a way to enjoy and have thrill. But people won’t think about how these crackers are harmful to environment and health.

It can cause throat, nose & eye related problems which can later develop into adverse health hazards. It can lead to headaches & reduced mental acuity when it reaches the level of 100 ppm. Burning crackers throws more smoke in to the Air which has much more severe effects in people with heart, respiratory or nervous system disorders. It can aggravate problem for people suffering from cold, allergies or coughs and can also cause congestion of throat & chest. Increase amount of noise has harmful effects on animals as well as humans

So let’s Say a BIG NO to Crackers and Fireworks and save our environment and health.

Burn Lights using Traditional Oil Lamps to Reduce Electric Power

Electric Power is already overloaded in our country. The use of electric power to light homes, business establishments, monuments and roads requires a huge amount of electricity. The older tradition of burning oil lamps is a possible alternative to electric lights – even though it does use oil, the duration of the lamps is shorter.

Lets Celebrate Diwali with family and relatives to enjoy more joy and happiness. I wish all my readers “HAPPY DIWALI”.

Samsung Galaxy3 My New Phone

October 19, 2010 1 comment

My Old Phone Nokia 6681 fell into water and was dead. This Phone used me for 3.7 years and finally left me. Now its time for me to search for a new phone. There is enough number of phones in market and it took me almost one day to finalize the phone. My budget was under 12-13K and I was looking into android based phones as this OS offers more number of features.

I was also trying Apple IPhone 3GS and given the cost is more than 35K I dropped my idea of not investing that amount at my level/age. I went to univercell cell showroom in koramangala, Bangalore and picked Samsun Galaxy3. This phone costs 12.3K + Insurance 200rs. I have to pay total of 12.5K. This is the best phone ever provided at this price range with all the features.

The Phone is really nice to hold as the plastic feels durable, and it is not slippery, thus making comfortable to hold. It has 3MP camera and 667MHz Processor with 240*400 Pixels 3.2” Touch screen. I can enjoy Videos and Games on these Big screen

I got 2GB SD Card free with this set and it’s not enough for me to store songs. This Phone has all the features I needed like 3.2” Touch screen with 3G and WiFi Support. I have also subscribed to Airtel GPRS with Monthly rental of 99Rs with 2GB Browsing. I also suggest if you are buying these kinds of phones always go for insurance. If you can shed a small amount which is worth it, you will get 75% to 90% of your phone value when you loose this phone.

Now I am sure most of you will search for a review of this phone.

Below is the video review and enjoy the phone

Many of us use Windows Operating system with lots of programs running. We open many files everyday and play around. We listen to music and see photos etc. Now there is nothing wrong doing this but these activities will create more unwanted temporary files in the system which will eat up your disk space and creates file clutter. This will decrease your computers performance.

Here are some tips which can be used by any computer user to keep their system clean. Removing temporary files is a quick and easy task that can help save disk space and keep your PC clean of file clutter.

1. Click on Start and then Run.
2. In the text box in the Run window, type “%Temp%” and click OK. A folder full of files and other folders will appear. These are unwanted files and can be deleted safely.
3. Again Click on Start and then Run.
4. In the text box in the Run window, type “recent” and click OK. A folder full of files and other folders will appear. These are unwanted files and can be deleted safely.
5. You can select all the files to delete using “Ctl+A” and then “Shift+Delete” keys to make sure the files are deleted permanently.

Note:

2: While deleting temporary files you may want to delete files in small number of files as some of the temp files are used by some programs do not worry if some files are not deleted.
