    Mechanical engineering is a broad field that is a subset of general engineering which involves the application of the principles of physics for the analysis, design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. An engineer uses science and mathematical principles for solving the technical problems. This branch is made up of many sub disciplines that are concerned with the mechanics, kinematics and energy of physical objects.

    This is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines. The practitioners of mechanical engineering are also known as a mechanical engineer. A mechanical engineer plays a significant role in several fields such as automated manufacturing, transportation, environmental control, transportation, computer fields, fossil fuel, nuclear power and many more. These engineers are also concerned with imagining and implementing programs and devices that may improve our world and our movement in it. A mechanical engineer is a specialized engineer who works with mechanical devices for e.g. elevators, refrigeration, robots, electric generators etc.

    In the sector of agriculture, a mechanical engineer plays an important role by establishing service centers for maintaining the tractors, oil engines, electric motors, pump sets and other agricultural equipments. He can work in manufacturing firms as well as can find work in administrative and managerial positions in government departments or public sector industries. An individual can also start his career as technical sales or marketing engineers or independent consultants.

    Digital recording promises to be the technology which helps us to get rid of the tiresome work of recording long conversations / interviews on tapes and to no longer burdened with boxes and boxes of 90-minute tapes. Now you can record interviews right onto your computer or your laptop. We can now process our interview recordings / conversations digitally, by adding effects, mixing, and so on, plus edit to literally dozens of “generations” without any loss of quality.

    Human beings have five senses. The more of their senses to which you can appeal during a presentation, the more likely they are to respond favourably and remember the contents of your presentation. This applies to sales pitches, classrooms, and everything in between. Stimulating smell, taste, and touch can be challenging, but creating a good audio visual presentation is within anyones reach.

    The two components of an Audio Recording for Multimedia Presentation are pictures, captions, videos, or other visual aids, and music or spoken words, in other words audio files. An audio visual presentation can be as simple as a professor lecturing to the class while displaying slides. It can be as complex as a product launch with a live band, stage light show, smoke, video screens, and lasers. It generally falls somewhere in between. Today, with the advent of PowerPoint computer projection technology, someone will create PowerPoint slides to accompany their presentation. These slides can also include embedded sound files or video clips.
    Audio visual presentations work so much better than just simply visual or simply audio for a number of reasons. First, if you provide more stimuli for your audience they are less likely to get bored and lose focus. Second, it has been proven that people learn in different ways. If you tap the two main ways people learn in an audio visual presentation, you are more likely to get all your information across.

    What is website indexability? In a nutshell, indexability means the efficiency in how Internet search engine robots, spiders, crawlers, worms, and/or ants are able to read the web pages for a website and determine their rank in the list of search results that they return to a user. One way to do this is with the addition of a robots.txt file. Add the file to the root of the website to instruct an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) robot which pages to index. This will make sure that only the most relevant pages are indexed.

    Not all SEO robots will read a robots.txt file. Most malware crawlers will unfortunately ignore it as their purpose is malicious. They do not care if they are only allowed access to certain pages. The main purpose of the robots.txt file is to tell friendly SEO crawlers which pages they should ignore while indexing the site. This is helpful in the case of an infinite domain space. An example of an infinite domain namespace might be one where users upload files into an online document repository. These documents are considered to be media and not content so the webmaster should add a line to the robots.txt file to disallow access to the root URL for this document repository. The more results returned from a site with the same URL will often degrade the result ranking of a page.

    Test pages are another example of parts of a website that should be passed over. Also any content not meant for visitors. This could include web pages that have been added to the site in order to calibrate the appearance of the pages but are not ready to be shared. Pages that can’t be accessed directly by a user conducting a search undermines the credibility of the results and will thus begin to degrade the page ranking.

    It is quite well known that the working of the computer is pulled by hardware and software. One can define computer hardware as the electronic, magnetic, and electric devices that carry out the computing functions. Hardware is the physical components of the computer like microprocessor, hard disks, RAM, and motherboard. The peripheral devices such as monitor, mouse, keyboard, printer, and speakers can also be included in the list of hardware parts. The programs that run on the computers like Windows, C++, and Photoshop are the software parts of the computer. A good example for an easy understanding of hardware-software definition is music CDs. The actual compact disk is the hardware, while the songs and music in the CD are the software parts.

    There is another way to define computer hardware. Hardware devices are the executors of the commands provided by software applications. For example, let us see what happens when you click the print button of the web browsing software. The software application provides a command to the processor, which is the central part of all computer hardware. Processor in turn checks for an attached printer. If the printer is ready, the software will get a positive response from the processor. Then the software application provides instruction to the printer via the processor to print the web page. In that sense, hardware parts are the foot soldiers and software applications are the commanders in the digital operation that takes place within a computer.

    The main player of computer hardware is undoubtedly the microprocessor. It is the sun in the solar system of computer hardware devices. It is the central component and all other components work around it. It is an integrated chip on which a number of functions are incorporated. Two specifications determine its efficiency. One is its processing speed, which is measured in gigahertz. The other is its bit rate. Commonly available processors are 32 bit and 64 bit. The bit rate is a measure of the efficiency of a processor to carry out multiple operations at the same time.

Unlike other devices, the computer is the one invention that does not have any one specific inventor. Throughout the development of the computer, various people have made contributions to making a computer work. Some of these inventions were those of complete computers or other additions that helped revolutionize the computer that existed at that time. One such invention was the Integrated Circuit.

    The single most important year in the history of computers is 1936. It was in 1936 that the very first computer was created by Konrad Zuse who called it the Z1 Computer. This was the first system that was fully programmable. Even though there had been devices that had come and gone before this but they didnt match upto it because of its superior computing power. Till 1942 no business saw profits and opportunities in computers. The first computer company was called ABC computers and was owned and operated by Clifford Berry and John Atanasoff. Two years later in 1942 came the Harvard Mark I computer which furthered the science of computing even more.

    The age of computers saw its biggest change ever in 1953 with the introduction of International Business Machines known today as IBM. The company has always been a key player in the development of new systems. This was the first real competition to bee seen in the world of computing and helped to encourage faster development of better computers. The first contribution of IBM was the IBM 701 EDPM Computer. A year after this the first high level programming language was brought to the centre stage. This was a programming language that had not been written in ‘assembly’ or binary languages and was called FORTRAN which was written to enable more people to be able to program computers. In the year 1955 Bank of America, Stanford Research Institute and General Electric joined hands to introduce the very first computer for use in banks.
