  • Decision-making can be tough for many
  • To make a rational decision, planning is very important
  • A happy life is only guaranteed when we are sure of the decisions we make

Reaching a decision is not an easy task. It requires multiple sessions of discussions with your dear ones, and at times, with yourself. A logical and reasonable decision asks for a period of systematic planning and scheming that see

ms to succeed all obstacles. Naturally, this holds true for all the spheres of life.

A pre-planned decision helps to live a life happily without unnecessary risks. It also reduces the chance of committing goof-ups or mistakes thereby propelling life through a smooth path. Therefore, if you want to have a tension free and protected future, you need to start planning from now. Taking this step will help you dodge all problems that life offers every now and then.

How plans prove to be of help?

Thorough planning can be of much help, even for simple tasks such as studying for your exams or major life events such as career planning. If you are still wondering about the capability of organised planning, then these instances can solve the dilemma appreciably:

  • Regular studying: It is good to chalk out a blueprint of your daily routines and dedicate fixed time duration for studying regular throughout the year. This will not only strengthen your base and provide you with confidence but will also prevent sudden disasters.
  • Career planning: Choosing a career is a crucial stage, and you should take this decision after a proper understanding of the situation. If you start planning beforehand and utilise your strengths, you can easily decide the best career for you.

    Career planning always needs one to think rationally.

However, planning is not always about self-planning, rather, you must strive to secure the future of your loved ones.Online term insurance is the most feasible option in this regard as it can protect your family for future uncertainties. Before subscribing to this thought, it is wise to understand the nuances and then reach a rational decision. Following points will help you make an informed decision:

Term insurance plan can cover your life at the lowest possible cost as compared to other plans. If any mishap happens to you,your ‘nominee’ will get the payout once he/she claims the death benefit. Moreover, insurancecompanies offer four different options to choose (while keeping in mind the benefits of the policyholder and his/ her family). Again, this decision also calls for organised planning, to see which payout option will suit your family if you aren’t there to suffice for them.

Few other considerations

Here are other vital aspects to consider while opting for term insurance:

  • The term plan is an ideal one if you buy it in the range of 10-20 times of your annual income
  • There is no perfect time to buy term insurance online but go for it as early as possible
  • In addition to basic term cover, consider specific riders such as critical illness rider, accidental death benefit rider, accidental disability rider which can make your term plan a more secure one

Why go for it?

If you still think that why you should buy term insurance online, then there are quite a few valid reasons to do so. Do you want your young ones to compromise with their dream when you are not around to tend to it? Or do you want your spouse and family to go through a financial crisis because of your sudden demise? Of course, not!

Decisions can only be made when one is in a clear mindset.

Your family is precious, and in order to guard them, you will have to understand the value of your own life and money. Term insurance plans are not a luxury or mindless ploys; rather these are a necessary investment for a better and brighter future. So, know your needs and buy term insurance online to secure the future of your loved ones.

Conclusion:

Any crucial decision in your life is a result of a well-thought-out debate, whether you buy an electrical appliance or choose a career. Therefore, always use your rationality to organise your ideas and reach a favourable conclusion!

Are We Alone In The Universe? Scientists Contemplate

This is a question that impacts not only science but theology, philosophy and other areas. It’s a curiosity. It’s part of being human.

The Hubble Telescope has given us spectacular pictures from space, from the dramatic image of the Pillars of Creation in the Eagle Nebula, some 6,500 to 7,000 light years from Earth, to a snapshot of nearly 10,000 galaxies, including some that may be among the most distant known, existing when the universe was just 800 million years old.

Awe-inspiring though they are, they are not detailed enough to help us in our search for life in the trillions of galaxies across the universe. And physicist Justin Crepp says the prospects for finding life out there are very good.

“If tens of a percent of stars have planets that could resemble the earth and potentially have life, then the implications are that there are billions of them just within our Milky Way Galaxy.”

Crepp, an associate professor of Physics at the University of Notre Dame, has been hard at work answering the age-old question, “Are we alone in the universe?” As a member of the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Exoplanet Science Strategy, his job is to make recommendations on how and what the U.S. will explore in space over the next decade.

In September, the committee released its initial 260-page report detailing seven recommendations. First, it encourages NASA to fly a space-based mission to directly image and characterize earth-like planets around other stars and take pictures of them. But Crepp says that’s a very challenging technical problem.

“If you try to image a planet, you run into several difficulties,” he explains. “One is that their separation is very small on the sky. So, you need to spatially resolve and isolate the signal of the planet. So, you need a certain size telescope to do that. The problem is earth’s atmosphere blurs out the images, and so it exacerbates the issue.”

Another issue is that the starlight is so bright, scientists need to find a way to block it to see the planets around it. The committee thinks the technology to do that exists, but they must be able to get above the earth’s atmosphere with the right equipment to make it happen.

Better eyes on the skies

That leads to the committee’s second recommendation, this one, for the National Science Foundation: complete work on the Giant Magellan Telescope in Chile, and start to build the proposed Thirty Meter Telescope in Hawaii. The new technology in these super telescopes will produce images 10 times sharper than those from the Hubble, even though they are ground-based.

Their highly sophisticated equipment will also allow scientists to greatly enhance the work of the third recommendation: completing the partially funded Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope or WFIRST. When launched into space, it will search for and gather information on planets hundreds of light years away.

Crepp says that data will help scientists learn what the planets are made of.

“Is it a giant puffy atmosphere, or is it a rock or somewhere in between? Is it a water world? We don’t know the answers to these yet, but we’re just starting to get the first hints and inclinations what these worlds might be like around other stars,” Crepp said.

More importantly, scientists will try to determine if there are any signs of life.

The panel’s other recommendations include building new highly sensitive equipment, creating new ways for multidisciplinary teams all over the world to collaborate on various aspects of the project, and forming a profitable investor program to further laboratory, ground-based and theoretical telescopic research.

The big question

Crepp notes that people have wondered for millennia if our planet was unique in the universe, whether we are truly alone.

“This is a question that impacts not only science but theology, philosophy and other areas. It’s a curiosity. It’s part of being human. Is our world special? Is it isolated? Are there other planets out there that have life? Can we communicate with them? Are they our distant brethren? How are we related to one another? If so, what can we learn from one another? So, that’s the motivation for a lot of people on our panel to go to work on a daily basis.”

The report from the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Exoplanet Science Strategy will be reviewed by Congress. Portions of it may be included in the final 2020-2030 Astronomy and Astrophysics Decadal Survey, which will fund the continuing search for exoplanets and the study of extraterrestrial life. (VOA)
