Nagababu familyTwitterActor Nagababu aka Nagendra Babu’s wife Padmaja has confirmed the news that Allu Arjun, Varun Tej and Niharika Konidela will campaign for Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party in the 2019 general elections.Pawan Kalyan has been single-handedly working hard to get majority of votes for the MLA and MP candidates of Jana Sena Party in the 2019 general elections. But he is not able to give enough time for everyone. This has raised the question why the power star is not able to bring in some star campaigners from the film industry. Many are also asking why mega family has ignored his party.Finally, here is good news for the supporters of Jana Sena party. In an interview, Nagababu’s wife Padmaja revealed that Allu Arjun, Varun Tej and Niharika are going to participate in the campaign. In an interview, she said, “Many people are impressed with the JSP manifesto. Some are confident of Pawan Kalyan, while a few doubt whether he will fulfill the promises made in manifesto.”Talking about Pawan Kalyan entering politics, Padmaja said, “Initially, I was not happy with Kalyan’s decision. I felt he was leading a happy life in the film industry. Why is risking himself, by getting into politics? I don’t like politics because, people will criticize you, even if you work hard for them.”Nagababu’s wife added, “After seeing his public speeches, I felt Kalyan has taken a right decision. He has come to do something good for the people and there is no bad intention in him joining politics. Whatever he promises to the people, he will definitely fulfill it.” Pawan Kalyan inducts his brother Nagababu in to Jana Sena partyTwitterNagababu, who also opposed Pawan Kalyan launching Jana Sena, recently joined the party and is contesting Lok Sabha elections from Narasapuram constituency. Talking about her husband, Padmaja said, “He is a very good-natured person and there is no negative stuff connected with his name. He is positive about the people that they would make him victorious in this elections.” Varun Tej with Allu ArjunTwitterAlong with her mother, actress Niharika Konidela is campaigning for her father Nagababu. When asked other members of the mage family, Padmaja said, “Varun will take part in the campaign after returning from the US. Bunny (Allu Arjun) will also definitely campaign for the Jana Sena soon.”

If you are, then you may be in luck in the near future. A start up, BlueStack, has just received its first round of funding from Ignition Ventures, Radar Partners, Helion Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, and Andreessen Horowitz for a total of $7.6 million. The company’s goal, to bring your favorite Android apps to your Windows based PC.

In addition to making it possible for children to play more, the app will allow consumers to cherry pick the best of the apps on the market. So, if you really love the document reader on your Android phone you can bring its distraction free interface to your PC for maximum productivity. The tool is also good news for developers, who will be able to reach larger audience with their apps, without the added development costs of creating a new version of the tool for each operating system out there.A beta version of the software is expected to be released in June or July of this year. The beta version will, of course, be free to the public. The commercial version of the software is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year, though no details on the final pricing of this app have been released at the current moment. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Android users get malware with their apps This document is subject to copyright.

Through high-speed video footage of a simulated male urine stream the researchers show that reduced splash can be achieved by aiming at a vertical surface, moving closer to the urinal and by decreasing the impact angle. The team also report that they also found that many detergents used to clean urinals tend to make the problem of splash-back worse because it reduces surface tension. Thus dirtier urinals might be less messy. Explore further It’s a problem males have dealt with since the advent of clothes and porcelain toilets—letting fly at the urinal inevitably results in some splash-back onto the floor, or worse, trousers. To better understand the problem, the team at BYU set up a water tank and nozzles (emitting colored water) to mimic the natural flow of human urine as it leaves the body. They then filmed the action using high-speed cameras. Scrutiny of the video allowed the team to clearly see which sorts of techniques cause the most, or least splash-back. They also set up another tank to mimic sitting on a toilet to pee, rather than standing at a urinal.In analyzing their results, the researchers found that sitting on a toilet, as most men well know, results in the least amount of splash-back (the contact point is much closer). They also discovered something likely few men have considered—that urine follows what is known as the Plateau-Rayleigh instability—where a pee stream breaks up into drops before striking something else. That’s the worst thing that can happen, the team reports, because each drop creates splash-back. To avoid that, men should stand as close to the urinal as possible they advise. Also helpful is directing the stream to hit the back of the urinal at a downward angle. That creates less splash-back and the drops that do bounce, head downwards into the urinal drain. Conversely, to prevent messing one’s trousers (or angering neighbors) they suggest men not spray directly into the urinal or into the pool that forms at the bottom of the urinal, both cause a lot of splash-back.

ABSTRACT: meeting.aps.org/Meeting/DFD13/Event/2025543. splashlab.byu.edu/4. Press release (Phys.org) —A team of four physicists at Brigham Young University (calling themselves “wizz-kids”) has been studying the physics properties of urine splash-back in a urinal-like environment. Their mission was to uncover the fluid dynamics involved in male peeing and to hopefully discern which approach leads to the least amount of splash-back (and less mess). They will be presenting their results at the American Physical Society Meeting later this month. This stream of water is a simulated urine stream entering a body of water similar to a toilet. The amount of splash is considerable and should make one reconsider standing up to urinate. The repeated impact of the droplets opens up a large and interesting cavity with multiple ridges. Each droplet forms a small cavity wherein the next droplet can pass through and form a cavity an additional cavity creating a chain of small cavity structures. Splash is formed both from the initial impact as well as the collapse of this large cavity. The process repeats itself over and over creating a real mess.
