Good communication skills will give you an edge over your peers.

College years are the formative years for every individual and communication skills play a vital role in that phase.

Every and any activity in college or after would involve some form of communication – verbal or written. The confidence you exhibit during such situations would come from how fluent and comfortable you are in presenting your case with words. From speaking in front of your class to a college event, your communication skills can help leave a lasting impression.
Communication skills can help in more than just one way. To help you understand, we have listed the key skills it involves and helps enhance.


1. Verbal and listening skills:
While communicating, good listening skills are quintessential to be a good communicator. To be able to answer properly to the question posed, one needs to be attentive while listening, interpret the meaning and then express ones’ views. However, more so often than not, we find ourselves struggling to gather the right words and send a message across to the hearer. A good business communication skill can ensure that you have a good vocabulary and know how to pronounce them properly with the right usage.

2. Writing skills:
Even eloquent people may feel challenged to string the right words when it comes to writing. But writing is essential part of any college life. To be able to understand the person or the activity you are writing for, it is important to break it down as per the intent or occasion. The knowledge of proper communication skills will help you in putting your point forth in short and crisp manner thus engaging the reader through it. It would also help provide you with the etiquettes of business communication via e-mails and messages.

3. Interpersonal skills:
To be able to build relationships with peers and key stakeholders is essential in maintaining a professional yet effective communication. These are character traits that involves your body language and social skills of engaging the hearer with more than just words. At every step of your college and later stages you would have to interact with people and put your point forth in the most effective manner. For you to be able to do so you would have to be confident about what you are speaking or writing, and good interpersonal skills ensure that you come across as a powerful speaker.

Now that we are clear on the importance of communication skills, you might be wondering where and how to improve or learn communication skills?
Online training can help introduce you to business communication, improve your speaking skills, enhance your professional writing ability, and build your interpersonal skills. It will also help you learn the role and importance of communication and understand the different modes of communication while learning the principles and techniques of written and verbal communication.
Improve your pronunciation, fluency and listening skills and learn how to communicate powerfully and stand out during the application process, from writing cover letters and resumes along with the principles of business communication.

There is a stark difference between the number of students graduating every year and the number of opportunities available. So, it is essential to realize that you would have to put your best foot forward and better your resume to seize the opportunities available.

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

By- Salil Gewali

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Planning a family vacation is an excellent way through which the whole family can step away from their daily life and have fun. You can find many destinations for a family vacation, but there is no place that can beat Aruba.

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
