Happy Ashad 15 to all!!

Spain vs who in the euro final 2012?

So Spain made it to the final in the penalty shoot out against Portugal. Though the game was very intense and lot of chances for the both teams,120 minutes of game was not enough to have at least one goal, as defense was stronger than the attack for both the team. Bruno Alve's miss for Portugal was the crucial one that made Spain go through before that, Iniesta, Pepe, Nani, Ramos kicked the ball to the net in the shoot-out and ultimately Fabregas had the ultimate winning shot. All left out in the shoot out was Captian himself ...May be Christiano Ronaldo reserved himself to do the winning shot that never game. As predicted earlier, Spain went to the final, but not in the normal time, not the predicted score and not even in the extra time and that's unbelievable. Now, the question is who will meet Spain in the finals: the result of the second semi-final match : Is it gonna be Germany or is it Italy? See my prediction here.

The Unity remixes Chanchal Chanchal (OST Apabad).

Asif Shah and Aidray ( from The Unity) improvises the song Chanchal Chanchal, an OST from the movie Apabad. The melodies song was originally sang by Sugam Pokharel and Samjhana Humagain, lyrics and music composed by Ujjwal Meghi Gurung. As a matter of fact, all the songs in the movie are written and arranged by Ujjwal Meghi. Asif Shah does the melodies singing part whereas Aidray performs solid with his fluent rap but Sudin Pokharel a.k.a DA69 is all left out in this song as he is in Australia for Kantipur Sports Reporting (as mentioned in his personal blog). The song tempo is lil rapid as compared to the original but it goes well with the flow and beats.

LTE for layman, LTE 700Mhz Smartphone List.

LTE (Long Term Evolution) is a 3.9 G Mobile technology, specifically for high speed data services. It's maximum speed for download is up to 300 Mbps but it depends on how much frequency is being used by the carrier. So the user gets more than 5 Mbps from a single tower in an area. To use the LTE data service, you need to either have a USB LTE dongle or LTE wireless modem or a smartphone with LTE enabled on it. When you buy a new LTE device, make sure you bring the equipment that runs in the same frequency that your operator has it otherwise it's of no use. For example: If Nepal Telecom has a LTE service in 700 MHz FDD, make sure the device works on that frequency to use LTE data service in Nepal, for that you have to see the device operability printed either in the catalog or you have to google it beforehand.

Here is the list of Smartphones/tabs with LTE 700 MHz.
Nokia Lumia 900
Samsung Galaxy S3.
Samsung S2 LTE.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7/10.1 LTE With CDMA.
Samsung Galaxy Note.
LG Optimus LTE2 with CDMA.
LG Optimus 4G LTE
iPad 3.
HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE.
Sony Xperia ion LTE.

Nepal Telecom to bring in LTE with Huawei.

Nepal Telecom and Huawei have signed a contract for 4.8 Million GSM lines including 3G+ (LTE) data services which is worth about 7 billion Nepali Rupees. Nepal Telecom's MD Amar Nath Singh and Huawei's Commercial Manager Liyan Chi Chang have inked the deal. It's been more than six months when Nepal Telecom had floated a global tender for 10 Million GSM lines which was separated in 4.8 M and 5.2 M lines, of which ZTE and Huawei were selected for further discussions. NT had months of discussion with the vendor after passing hurdles from Finance Committee in CA, and CIAA (Commission for the Inviestigation of Abuse of Authority). 

With this, Nepal Telecom will be swapping the existing ZTE system in Central Development Region (Kathmandu) and Western Development Region(WDR) with the Huawei System, having more no of lines and additional high speed internet services of 3G and 3G+ LTE Service (45 % 2G GSM lines and 55% 3G and 3G+ LTE lines). Though various operators in foreign countries call LTE service as 4G just for marketing purpose, we will have to wait and see what will they call for the fast LTE service in Nepal. Nepal Telecom is confident of the new project to cater the cost effective and quality service demand in the market.

NT is also going to sign a contract with ZTE for the 5.2 Million lines, the leftover of 10 M Project. "Soon we are going to discuss with ZTE to do a pact for the remaining 5.2 million lines" says Nepal Telecom's MD Amar Nath Singh.

Unbeaten Germany and Italy both enter into the semi-final match after Italy beats England in a penalty shoot-out.

Keeping its defensive line firm, Italy need to boost up their offensive strategy to score multiple goals against the offensive giant Germany. Mario Gomez, Mesut Ozil are the players to see from Germany whereas Antonio Di Natale, Mario Balotelli are the ones from Italian side. Italian need to outscore Germans and if they manage to force a draw to penalty shoot-out then the result is on their side.

HTC for SIRI S-Voice Rival?

If rumors on new application, devices work in the same way as it did before from different tech crunch sites, then HTC is surely working on a voice assistant for their phones- a rival to Apple's SIRI and Samsung's S Voice.

England vs. Italy prediction Euro 2012.

England unconvincingly topping the Group D, take on Italy in the last quarterfinal games of Euro 2012. As neither of the team is favorite among those standing squads, and both of them are not performing that well, they seemed to be on the equal grounds for this game and may result in a rather boring game. Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard are the players to see from English side where as Antonio Di Natale, Mario Balotelli are the ones to watch from the Italian side.

Police Raid on Dons of Kathmandu.

Nepal Police have raided the house of different gangsters this Saturday morning but all went in vain as they managed to flee somehow.

Deepak Manangay, Baghay Lama, Kumar Ghaite, Shashi Adhikari, Panchay Lama, Dinesh Adhikari aka Chari, Dawa Lama, Tejendra Gurung were among them during the search. This is one of the biggest raid for the dons who were known to performing criminal acts almost openly and alleged to be protected by some political parties. It is also learned that Police had not raided house of Ganesh Lama who is a close aide to Deputy Prime Minister Bijaya Kumar Gacchedar, who is also the acting Prime Minister of Nepal as PM Baburam Bhattarai is on a trip to Brazil for Rio +20- epic failure.

Spain vs France prediction Quarterfinal Euro 2012

Spain, the strong favorite is taking on France in the third quarter-final of Euro 2012 tomorrow at Donetsk, Ukraine. Spain as predicted topped the group C though the match against Croatia might have adverse result for the defending champion La Roja whereas France's survival came with lessons learned from Sweden and through the hands of England beating Ukraine. None of the all Star Spanish Squad have played outstanding till now but they have the potential to beat any Nation with incredible talent and plenty of experience. And It seems like Lack of leadership and good play in French Squad from Frank Ribery will give adverse result to them.

Wi-Fi will soon reach its limit: Research

Wi-Fi, the well-known standard for wireless Internet, is reaching its technical limits. Its efficiency drops significantly in busy surroundings where many different networks and numerous wireless Internet-enabled devices are operating. In some cases, it may even drop to less than 20%. This has emerged from exploratory research being carried out by the University of Twente's CTIT Research Institute, on behalf of Radiocommunications Agency Netherlands. The increasing demand for bandwidth means that the efficiency of Wi-Fi is likely to fall still further in future. For this reason, the researchers think that we should consider the option of a new Wi-Fi standard.

Spain need at least a draw to put themselves in the quarterfinals whereas Croatia need a draw other than 0-0 or 1-1 for the survival in Euro 2012.

Apabad Movie Review

Tom hanks image from Forrest Gump and Castaway used to come to my mind when I imagined a person with full beard. But after the Apabad trailer and the promotional picture from the movie, Raj Ballav Koirala image replaces Tom Hanks in my head. Though I have some pictures of my own with full beard, it never comes in the thought process. Here I am not talking beard and men in this post, so lets get straight to the movie Apabad.

Quarterfinalists of Euro 2012.

Group A

After the completion of second stage matches, two simultaneous matches of each group will be exciting and more drama to see ahead in Euro 2012. Ireland and Sweden are only the two teams that are already knocked out from the tournament, and all others have lil' or high hopes to get through the next stage. Previously Group A games was not in the light for many of the media but now it seems the fight for the survival goes fierce in the group, leaving more fun in the people from the game. For me, Russia and Czech republic will go through the next round, with former USSR topping the group. With that, major disappointment will be among polish, being unsuccessful in their own home ground.

Spain Vs Ireland Prediction Euro 2012

Spain is all set to thrash Republic of Ireland after a draw with Italy in the first match of Euro 2012. World's favorite La Roja won't be shaky in scoring numbers against them and making Ireland the first team to knock out from this tournament. Striker Torres may be coming out early in today's match making Fabregas to come out later and that depends on how  Vicente del Bosque is seeing things. Ireland might have lil' hope to score against the giant and the chances to score against Croatia may help a bit for the mind game. But final score will be definitely against them. 
Here is the prediction of the match Spain Vs Ireland Euro 2012.

Lyrics of Chetana- new song by Lochan Rijal

Adincha ki kaso? ...tarincha ki jaso taso.
Baulaincha ki jasto!...sahincha ki yaso kaso....

Akaash chune ghamanda ma chatyan khasi thiche jasto...
Aasha jutaune kram ma mastiska nai charkiye jasto..

Marincha ki kaso...............

Aakha mera dhamila bhaye... kolahalka drishya dekhera..
Kan mera dukhchan achel.... charko charko jhadap le garda...

Afnai chaati lai afai thichera abhinay garera dhalna     man chaina..
Afnai pithyu ma chura ropera... bharosha todhera galna man chaina..

Uthincha ki pahadai jasto...bhasincha ki khadal gahiro..
Maulaincha ki jungle jasto...Nasincha ki kharani sasto..

Akash chune ghamanda ma chatyang khasi thiche jasto...
Aasha jutaune kram ma mastiska nai charkiye jasto...

Marincha ki kaso................

It's none other than Tinseltown's fav Tom Cruise rocking shirtless and tattoed as Stacee Jaxx alongside Joulianne Hough, Catherine Zeta Jones, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Diego Boneta and many more in the adaptation of Broadway Musical "Rock Of Ages". Critics wooed Tom cruise performance in the movie and some even went ahead to tell a sure Oscar nod.

France vs England Prediction Euro 2012.

France and England, neighboring Rival are meeting today for the Group D matches. Though Sweden and Ukraine, other Two teams in Group D, are not the world's best teams, both France and England will be yearning for a winning point to advance in the next stages.
England had easy road for the Euro Cup Qualifier but France struggled to get the place with a last minute penalty against Bosnia. Though it's gonna be tough for the rejuvenated French to thrash England, they are in advantageous position with suspended Rooney and injured Lampard. So all eyes on Steven Gerrard and how he puts the ball to kiss the net.

Huawei Launches World's First ANR for Commercial Use

Huawei has announced the successful commercial launch of the Automatic Neighbour Relation (ANR) feature on LTE networks in Cologne, Germany. This release marks the first time that an ANR feature has been successfully launched on a commercial network in the world.
Deployed by Huawei, Cologne's LTE network was officially launched for commercial use in April, 2011. In October, 2011, Huawei began verifying ANR functions and features for use on the LTE network, including neighbour detection, automatic adding, and neighbour deletion. Now that the ANR feature has been in commercial operation for three months, it allows for the automatic management and optimisation of all neighbour relations without human intervention. It is also able to reach a handover success rate of 99 per cent when network performance is stable.
Within traditional GSM and UMTS networks, neighbour relations are managed and optimized manually, resulting in huge operation and maintenance costs.
As one feature of Huawei's SingleSON solution, ANR supports automatic management and optimization of neighbor relations for networks that feature multiple modes and layers.

Concert in Everest for Guiness Record.

Eight musicians from various countries reached top of a Himalayan peak in Nepal, played their guitar and sang for 40 minutes to claim the record for the highest musical performance. The group also raised money for a charity in Nepal building an orphanage.

Their fingers were stiff from the cold, and two musicians got altitude sickness. But the music atop a Himalayan peak in Nepal was inspired by a sensational view as the group laid claim to the record for highest musical performance.

They even had an audience — 15 other trekkers paid $10 each to watch the musicians perform for 40 minutes at the summit of 6,654-meter (21,825-foot) high Mera Peak, which is close to Mount Everest and Mount Lhotse.
"My fingers were freezing. It was difficult to play the guitar after a few minutes, but I kept playing," group leader Oz Bayldon said in the capital, Katmandu, on Thursday. "I felt like a 90-year-old with asthma."
Only eight of the 10 volunteers from various countries reached the top, while the two with altitude sickness did not. Local porters helped carry their three guitars, small amplifier fitted with speakers, microphones and a stand.
The musicians took turns performing May 16
"The view was beautiful in the backdrop of some of the tallest and most beautiful mountains. It was like some one had painted it and put it there," Bayldon said.
He sang and played three of the English songs he wrote and one Nepali "mero naam, tero naam," which just means your name, my name.
Frenchman J.B. Tilon, 25, said he was very tired on the way up and did not feel too well. But once he got to the top and saw the view he was full of energy.
"It was the most beautiful landscape I have even seen. It was being above the clouds," he said, adding it was very cold and dry so he was able to play only for five minutes and only one French song.
Bayldon, an Australian living in London, said the group raised 35,000 pounds ($54,300) for a charity in Nepal that is building an orphanage.
Other performers are from England, Scotland, Poland and Denmark. Bayldon set a previous record for highest musical performance in 2005, performing near the base camp of Everest. But that record was broken two years later.
Guinness World Records credits Musikkapelle Roggenzell, 10 musicians from Germany and Bolivia, who scaled Mount Acotango in Bolivia to perform at 6,069 meters (19,911 feet).
Guiness is awaiting the evidence before verifying if the new performance set a new record.
