6 Mughal Gardens to Visit During Kashmir TripConstructing Mughal Gardens was the most beloved pastime of the Mughal imperials. Mughal Gardens in Srinagar are basically the gardens that were built during the reign on Mughal Emperors. Influenced heavily by the concept of Persian Gardens or the charbagh, these gardens drew heavily upon Persian style of architecture. The common features that all Mughal Gardens share is the rectilinear layouts within the walled structure with canals, fountains, pools of running water and several species of shade providing trees , flowers, fruits and aromatic grasses.
No other emperor is credited with taking the garden architecture and floral designs to the height as Shah Jahan the pinnacle of which was reached when he constructed the sprawling funeral paradise Taj Mahal in Agra to commemorate his beloved wife Mumtaj Mahal. But in this write up we are not going to talk about the Taj Mahal. Instead we’ll focus on some of the other but equally impressive Mughal Gardens in Kashmir which the Mughal adopted as their summer capital. So read on about the top Mughal Gardens in Kashmir that you must visit if you are planning your tours to Kashmir.
Nishat Bagh

A garden of bliss, a garden of joy, a garden of delight, whatever one chooses to call it, Nishat Bagh in Srinagar is exceptionally beautiful in every sense of the word. If one looks back in the pages of history, the Mughal era is likely to feel the most dominating one in Kashmir. After dethroning the mightiest of kings, these rulers of Persia set their foot in Kashmir in the 16th century. It was the sheer beauty of the valley that enticed them to conquer and rule. The glory days came with Jahangir, who was an avid art lover and who developed an undaunted love for Kashmir. He set the pace for the construction of some of the most splendid attractions in Kashmir, and that includes Nishat…...

Triangulation

...Can You Find Me Now? How is a Nintendo Wii game console able to determine the location of a Wii Remote while a player interacts with the game? The answer is triangulation, a process that determines the location of an object by measuring the angles from two or more fixed points. Surveyors often use triangulation to measure distance. Starting at a known location and elevation, surveyors measure a length to create a base line and then use a theodolite to measure an angle to an unknown point from each side of the base line (Jains 30-48). The length of the base line and the two known angles allow a computer or person to determine the location of a third point. Similarly, the Nintendo Wii game console uses triangulation to determine the location of a Wii Remote. A player places a sensor bar, which contains two infrared transmitters, near or on the top of a television. While the player uses the Wii Remote, the Wii game console determines the remote’s location by calculating the distance and angles between the Wii Remote and the two transmitters on the sensor bar. Determining the location of a Wii Remote is relatively simple because the sensor bar contains only two fixed points: the transmitters. A more complex application of triangulation occurs in a global positioning system (GPS). A GPS consists of one of more earth-based receivers that accept and analyze signals sent by satellites to determine a receiver’s geographic location.

Tendency to Quit Among Woman as a Quantity Surveyor in the Construction Industry

...1.0 THE RESEARCH TITLE Tendency To Quit Among Women As A Quantity Surveyor In Construction Industry. There are many types of work in the construction industry like architect, engineer and developer. In which, it will focus more about woman who choose to be a quantity surveyor but have shorter lifespan in that scope of work compared to men. 2.0 OVERVIEW OF THE TITLE In Malaysia, number of women involved in the construction industry is said to have not that much compared to other sectors like education and health. However, they still play important part in the construction industry especially quantity surveyor. Unfortunately, they said to retired early and choose other forms of works instead of becoming a quantity surveyor. According to Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (ISM), there are about 4,928 members in the ISM where the number of women is1,500. The areas that they are working are as follows: • Quantity surveying: 42% • Geomatic and land surveying: 13% • Property consultancy and valuation surveying: 24% • Building surveying: 38% It proves that quantity surveyor dominates the chart in the quantity surveyor profession. But, men still beat them in number. According to Sr Wan Maimun Wan Abdullah, President of the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (ISM), the reason men make up the majority is due to misconceptions by the general public about the surveying profession. Surveyors are often associated with the construction sector – burly men in yellow helmets,......

...I'm not sending in anything heres a yahoo news article: There has been a long-lived bit of Apollo moon landing folklore that now appears to be a dead-end affair: microbes on the moon. The lunar mystery swirls around the Apollo 12 moon landing and the return to Earth by moonwalkers of a camera that was part of an early NASA robotic lander – the Surveyor 3 probe. On Nov. 19, 1969, Apollo 12 astronauts Pete Conrad and Alan Bean made a precision landing on the lunar surface in Oceanus Procellarum, Latin for the Ocean of Storms. Their touchdown point was a mere 535 feet (163 meters) from the Surveyor 3 lander -- and an easy stroll to the hardware that had soft-landed on the lunar terrain years before, on April 20, 1967. [Video: Apollo 12 Visits Surveyor 3 Probe] The Surveyor 3 camera was easy pickings and brought back to Earth under sterile conditions by the Apollo 12 crew. When scientists analyzed the parts in a clean room, they found evidence of microorganisms inside the camera. In short, a small colony of common bacteria -- Streptococcus Mitis -- had stowed away on the device. The astrobiological upshot as deduced from the unplanned experiment was that 50 to 100 of the microbes appeared to have survived launch, the harsh vacuum of space, three years of exposure to the moon's radiation environment, the lunar deep-freeze at an average temperature of minus 253 degrees Celsius, not to mention no access to nutrients, water or an energy source.

No organization that I know of has| |done this. Most surveys are puny affairs using ‘representative samples’ and statistical variances’ conducted by market | |research companies, at the end of which nobody knows who’s been met and who hasn’t. But reports are churned out and the | |‘will of the consumer’ is presented to senior management with bugles blowing and flag fluttering. | We love that term – Experience Enhancing! So different from ‘customer feedback’ or ‘satisfaction survey’ or (yawn) ‘ client servicing’. How does your organization Enhance the Experience of your customers? Actually, think about the ‘Customer Service Department’ that most organizations come up with. The term itself throws up images of someone being taken somewhere to be ‘serviced’ much like a car or a two-wheeler. How would the department function if its mandate was “Experience Enhancing’? Something so important could not be outsourced to any market research company. It had to be finely controlled and therefore done in-house. The survey was becoming the cornerstone of their strategy. They set up a team of 700 surveyors from scratch. During the survey, an idea emerged: they would finish the survey and go back with the result to the households...

...interpretation What we observed about the buying decision process of Colgate’s consumers: * Problem recognition: As this is a toiletry product, the requirement for it comes under basic need. Hence, our consumers did not spend enough time in problem recognition. * Information Search: Several of them did not extensively search for the information, for 6 surveyors it was recommended by the family and friends. And the rest 30%, they purchased due to the advertisements, only for one it was doctor recommended. * Evaluation of alternatives: As major chunk of our surveyors were influenced by their families and friends, they blindly followed their recommendation and did not exploit the other available options. 3 people, they evaluated the other options after looking the advertisement on the TV. * Purchase decision: As the risk factor is not high, the purchase decision was not done instantly. * Post purchase Evaluation: Once the product was purchased and used, most of our surveyors were satisfied with the packaging and the features of the toothpaste and did not complain about anything. Not a single surveyor had a negative opinion about Colgate. Hence, buying decision factors were initially influenced by social and psychological factors but we observed that in due course of time consumers were thoroughly satisfied with the product and the later buying decision was rather a personal choice. We inquired our survey takers about their initial motivation for......
