October 26, 2016: Do you ever feel that your life is heading nowhere and it has no goal? Many people create a bucket list that is full of crazy, adventurous activities.  The main reason behind creating a bucket list is to live every moment to the fullest. Here are the few things that you can try:

  1. Defy gravity

Go for skydiving. It is the perfect combination of excitement and serenity. Once the parachute opens, the heart rate will get steady, just take a moment and enjoy the view.

  1. Northern lights:

Of all the natural phenomenon in the world, nothing compares to the beauty of the northern lights. The lights are like dancing colors of the sky. The Algonquian Indians of Canada believed that the fire was built by the Great Spirit.

  1. Verify for yourself that the Earth is round:

Set sail in one direction and do not stop until you’re home. Journey around the North of the Arctic Circle around the summer would be perfect. You can spend a night watching the sun circle above the horizon.

  1. Climb your own Mount Everest:

It is believed that Gods stay in the mountains. When Petrarch climbed 6000 feet and saw the view from the top of Mount Ventaux, he said, “What I had read of Athos and Olympus seemed less incredible as I myself witnessed the same things”. The reward would be unbelievable: to stand on the highest bit and get the perfect view. Maybe you would finally understand why the mountains are calling.

  1. Go on a road trip:

It is said that the journey is a destination; a road trip is an adventure. Do not make a plan. Avoid the question,” Are we there yet?” It’s all about the fun, the talk and the landscape. Enjoy the moment.

  1. Conquer a fear:

Lucas Jonkman said,” Fight your fears and you’ll be in a battle forever. Face your fear and you’ll be forever”. Face your fear that has been putting limits on your full potential and let your breakthrough inspire other people.

  1. Donate something

Donate something that will bring change in someone’s life. Be it your hair, your blood or any other thing. Helping others will give you a feeling of satisfaction which is unbeatable.

  1. Bury a time capsule

Bury few of your favorite things in places where a stranger can dig it up. Leave a note with it telling him how these much things matter to you.

  1. Take someone you love to a romantic place

The place should not be a local 5 star restaurant. Take your special someone to Paris or Santorini. Any romantic place would work where you can be close to nature and to your special someone.

  1. African Safari

African Safari is an affordable travel choice. Watching wild animals roaming freely and falling asleep would be a treat for the eyes. There would be many magnificent natural sights. You can meet people from all around the world in Africa.

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
