Egynecologists and historians have long debated the question of who built the Pyramids, and how. Standing at the base of the Pyramids at Giza it is hard to believe that any of these enormous monuments could have been built in one pharaoh’s lifetime. Yet scholars think they were built over mere decades for three pharaohs who were father, son, and grandson (Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure).
Ptolemy (born A.D. 90), was an astronomer whose model of the universe became the standard geocentric theory, until Copernicus. Ptolemy’s writings proved influential in early astronomy, and he was revered throughout the Middle Ages in Europe and Arabia. He also provided the most authoritative compilation of constellations in antiquity. Although he helped to discredit Aristarchos’ heliocentric universe (more on that later), and ensured the geocentric model would be universally accepted for the next 1,000 years, Ptolemy did much to raise the standard of astronomy.
Ptolemy did this by highlighting the disjunction between mathematical models and actual, observed patterns in the stars. Because planets actually follow ellipses (a fact not proven until Kepler), ancient astronomers relied on epicycles (circles within circles within circles) to explain the motion of the planets. Epicycles can be quite accurate, but they are never perfect. Ptolemy’s work on astronomy did much to highlight the problems of epicycles, ensuring that later astronomers continued to search for better explanations.

5 Facts That Make The Pyramids Even More Amazing To Visit
The Pyramids of Giza are truly among the world’s most incredible wonders. Rich with history, steeped in mystery, and structurally miraculous even to this day, they’re unlike any other attractions in the world, and undoubtedly account for a great deal of international tourism to Cairo and the surrounding areas. Making the pyramids even more fascinating is the fact that the more you learn about them, the more interesting they become. They’re not underwhelming in person, and it doesn’t take away from their mystique to find out more about them. With that in mind, we wanted to write up five facts that make them even more extraordinary to visit, should you ever get the chance to do so.
Most of us tend to think of the pyramids as being massive, but not particularly tall by comparison to some other structures around the world. For much of human history, however, perception would have been different. According to one article, the Great Pyramid held the record for world’s tallest structure from 2560BC-1311AD – a period of 3,871 years. The same article notes that the Lighthouse of Alexandria may have briefly eclipsed the Great Pyramid in 280 BC, but its height is not known for sure, and it didn’t last. So we can safely say that the largest of the Giza pyramids holds a record that will probably never be broken, for longest tenure as the world’s tallest man-made structure.
2. Astrological Debate
You probably know (particularly if you’ve ever subjected yourself to an episode of Ancient Aliens) that there are all kinds of wild theories about how and why the pyramids were built. Some believe in lost ancient technologies, some in extraterrestrial influence, some in time travel, etc. The recent X-Men film X-Men: Apocalypse even brought some comic book flavor to the lore, suggesting mutant humans helped prop up ancient Egypt (though that’s more of a fiction than a theory). Despite all of the wild speculation, however, there is very real debate about the role astrology played in the pyramids’ construction and arrangement. At different times scientists have suggested that Egyptians used Orion’s Belt as a model for the arrangement.

What the Super computer do for us
1. Word processors never display a cursor.
2. You never have to use the space-bar when typing long sentences.
3. Movie characters never make typing mistakes.
4. All monitors display inch-high letters.
5. High-tech computers, such as those used by NASA, the CIA or some such governmental institution, will have easy to understand graphical interfaces.
6. Those that don’t have graphical interfaces will have incredibly powerful text-based command shells that can correctly understand and execute commands typed in plain English.
7. Note: Command line interfaces will give you access to any information you want by simply typing, “ACCESS THE SECRET FILES” on any near-by keyboard.
8. You can also infect a computer with a destructive virus by simply typing “UPLOAD VIRUS”. (See “Fortress”.)
9. All computers are connected. You can access the information on the villain’s desktop computer even if it’s turned off.
10. Powerful computers beep whenever you press a key or the screen changes. Some computers also slow down the output on the screen so that it doesn’t go faster than you can read. (Really advanced computers will also emulate the sound of a dot-matrix printer.)
11. All computer panels operate on thousands of volts and have explosive devices underneath their surface. Malfunctions are indicated by a bright flash of light, a puff of smoke, a shower of sparks and an explosion that causes you to jump backwards.
12. People typing on a computer can safely turn it off without saving the data.
13. A hacker is always able to break into the most sensitive computer in the world by guessing the secret password in two tries.
14. You may bypass “PERMISSION DENIED” message by using the “OVERRIDE” function. (See “Demolition Man”.)
15. Computers only take 2 seconds to boot up instead of the average minutes for desktop PCs and 30 minutes or more for larger systems that can run 24 hours, 365 days a year without a reset.
16. Complex calculations and loading of huge amounts of data will be accomplished in under three seconds. Movie modems usually appear to transmit data at the speed of two gigabytes per second.
17. When the power plant/missile site/main computer overheats, all control panels will explode shortly before the entire building will.
18. If you display a file on the screen and someone deletes the file, it also disappears from the screen (See “Clear and Present Danger”).
19. If a disk contains encrypted files, you are automatically asked for a password when you insert it.
20. Computers can interface with any other computer regardless of the manufacturer or galaxy where it originated. (See “Independence Day”.)
21. Computer disks will work on any computer has a floppy drive and all software is usable on any platforms.
22. The more high-tech the equipment, the more buttons it will have (See “Aliens”.)
23. Note: You must be highly trained to operate high-tech computers because the buttons have no labels except for the “SELF-DESTRUCT” button.
24. Most computers, no matter how small, have reality-defying three-dimensional active animation, photo-realistic graphics capabilities.
25. Laptops always have amazing real-time video phone capabilities and performance similar to a CRAY Supercomputer.
26. Whenever a character looks at a monitor, the image is so bright that it projects itself onto their face. (See “Alien” or “2001”)
27. Searches on the internet will always return what you are looking for no matter how vague your keywords are. (See “Mission Impossible”, Tom Cruise searches with keywords like “file” and “computer” and 3 results are returned.)

BPO refers to Business process outsourcing which is actually the practice of using a third party on a contract basis to carry out particular, specific processes on a company’s behalf. Outsourcing has come as a great relief to many organizations because it allows them to focus on their primary purpose. By outsourcing ‘works’ to third party, they manage to save cost and expenditure. It is common practice among the large multinationals. The biggest beneficiaries of BPO phenomenon are developing countries like India that has good English speaking population. It is a win-win situation for both the contractor and the contracted. BPO industry is of usually two types; front office and back office outsourcing. In last one decade, if there is one sector that has lured most of the youngsters then it is BPO sector.
Many young professionals have chosen BPO as their career. If we talk specifically about BPO industry in India then the growth rate is absolutely phenomenal. It is contributing heavily to India’s GDP from the export earnings. Almost 3 million people are employed with BPOs spread across the country. There are enormous job opportunities in BPO sector. Most of the BPO companies do not demand highly qualified professionals. Initially, BPO service was just restricted to voice services but now, we have customer relationship management services, legal transcription, industry specific services, human resources, content development, finance, animation, accounting, learning and procurement, insurance, and multimedia etc. BPO industry is the fastest growing industry in many parts of the world, especially in Asia and Latin America.
