Last Year’s Blood Donation Program

originally published in zappylily.blogspot.com on December 22, 2013

Dear readers, you might have known I am involved in a youth club called Chetansheel Yuwa Samuha. It is a small local club (just over a year old now) and last year, we conducted a blood donation campaign in our community. This program was a huge achievement for us. पढ्नेक्रम जारी राख्नुहोस्

Donate- Be it blood or books

Time flies! It feels like only yesterday we had started our community based youth club and now it’s nearly one year. After few programs that went on with full enthusiasm, we kind of remained stagnant. However unchanged our motivation might be, we couldn’t engage in any kind of programs due to our own busyness. Most of our club members had started job, few started internship and some went for abroad studies. It was our dear friend +Arjan KC who would post cool stuffs occasionally on our facebook group to engage us. He would also tweak our blog and it would make me guilty about not being able to give time to our club.

One good thing about our community is that we have full support from our older generation’s club. So when there are some programs to be organised, they reach us. This year too, Shyama Shyama Co-operative wanted to organize a blood donation program on the occasion of their 6th anniversary. They called me one late evening in their meeting to talk about the donation event. Having organised it previously, we were quite confident we could do this easily.

The event went well. However the donors were less than expected. This could be due to the chilly weather whole day. Also, maybe we didn’t go for house-to-house invitation (we had sent the invitation via sms, which was way easy, practical and less time consuming). Apart from the blood donation, we also had a book donation program. +Arjan KC  participated in the startup weekend only to get awesome ideas, good networking and a good platform to venture his ideas. He had teamed up with other guys he met at the Sartup weekend. As a result, there was a blue bin saying “books for all” where few people donated books.

Overall, the program went well. We hadn’t seen our club members in weeks and thanks to this program we were able to do so. I donated my blood for the very first time! I coaxed myself repeatedly saying “My blood can save someone’s life” (only to discover later it can save up to 4 lives! It seems I did not read those pamphlets carefully. Sigh.) Also we had a bonfire later like we always do after the end of the event. Looks like bonfire will be the tradition of Chentansheel Yuwa Samuha 😀

ICTs in Disaster Risk Management

Anotherverse

Nowadays, the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has become more and more significant in various sectors of our society including the management of natural hazards and disasters. ICT can be used to minimize the impacts of disaster and plays an important role in all phases of the Disaster Risk Management (DRM) cycle: risk mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery, though its levels of involvement and applications are varied for each phases of the cycle. In order to reduce the impacts of natural disasters, it is required to put systematic efforts in the analysis of potential risk and identification of suitable measures for mitigation as well as for improved emergency preparedness activities, prior to a disaster. The response and recovery activities are as well important during and after a disaster for the provisions of emergency assistance for search and rescue, public safety as well as for the restoration of disaster-affected…

सामाजिक सन्जाल तथा सन्चार माध्यममा सुनिरहेका केहि कुरा

*विचार पुरै फेरिनु ३६० डिग्रीले फेरिनु हो त?
*पानीको बहाव (Discharge) र आयतन (Volume) बारे नाप्ने एकाइ (Measuring unit) क्युमेक,क्युसेक के हो?

१.लागौँ पहिलो कुरातर्फ, यहाँ ३६०डिग्री लेखेर खास विचार उल्टो कोणतर्फ मोडियो भन्न खोजिएको थियो। सरल रुपमा भन्नुपर्दा कोण भनेको  एउटा रेखाबाट अर्कोसम्म पुग्न कति घुम्नुपर्छ त्यसको मापन हो र कोण नाप्ने एकाइ हो डिग्री, जुन संसारमा अहिले साधारण प्रयोगमा सबैभन्दा बढी प्रयोग हुन्छ। अलि कम प्रचलनमा रहेको ग्रेड वा गोन (दसमलव पध्दतिमा आधारित) र वैज्ञानिक काममा रेडियन प्रयोग भएपनि चलनचल्तीमा ६०मा आधारित पध्दति डिग्री नै छ।
माथिका सबै कोण नाप्ने एकाइहरु सतहीकोण (plane) नाप्न प्रयोग हुन्छन् र यी  पध्दतिहरु वृत्तमा (Circle) आधारित भएर परिभाषित छन।
६० मा आधारित डिग्री पध्दतिमा एक पुरा फन्को वा वृत्त बराबर ३६० डिग्री लिएर हिसाब गरिन्छ जब कि ग्रेड वा गोनमा एक पुरा फन्को ४०० ग्रेड वा गोनले बनाउँछ। त्यस्तै एक रेडियन भने वृत्तको अर्धव्यास…
