Finally the day has arrived and we got our offer letters for which we were waiting for months.Perhaps this day is one of the happiest occasions in our life but still I like to prioritize July 7th 2007 as the special day in my life.Although everyone's life is not so hard like Christopher Garner's(Will Smith) life in the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness",it will be a same sort of emotions when one hear "You are selected!"and it will be a wonderful experience. After 16 long years of studies, we have got the oppurtunity of looking at the other part of the life "work" and face the challenges in the corporate world.But still I know that it is not the end of the road for our studies and we have to go through a tough time during the training in the concerned companies.With only few days left for the end of our graduation everyone of us shared our presence in the photo session for the memories of this special day.Also with this, I would like to wish all my friends a prosperous future.

Daylight Saving Time starts in many parts of United states from 9th March and ends on first sunday of November.Daylight Saving Time is a way of using more light out of the day by advancing clocks by one hour during the summer.Thus during DST, sun appears to rise one hour later in the morning and sets one hour later in the evening seeming to stretch the day one hour longer.The concept of DST is introduced inorder to save the energy that are required to light the houses .By practicing this it is expected to save 10,000 barrels of oil every day.During spring clocks are set one hour ahead with 23 hours a day and during autumn,clocks are set one hour back with 25 hours a day.

This concept of Daylight Saving Time was first suggested by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 and later by William Willet in 1907.United States later adapted it by 1916.DST is practiced in many parts of North America,Europe,Australia.

Virtual Reality is the simulation of a three-dimensional environment that appears real to the viewer.A virtual reality simulation happens in real time or as the viewer watches.The viewer can manipulate the surroundings that he or she sees during a virtual reality simulation.

Virtual reality provides new and helpful ways for people to interact with computers,machines and other people.For example,in areas such as medicene,simulation using virtual reality can provide realistic experiences, such as practicing specific surgical techniques before attempting an actual operation.To be more familiar with Virtual Reality,Hollywood movie "THE MATRIX" says it all.

Three types of hardware are used to create a virtual reality environment.Sensors are used to detect the viewer's reactions or movements,effectors are used to simulate the viewer's senses, and a super computer links the sensors and effectors to create a illusion of a real illusion of a "real" physical environment.

Electronic gloves have been designed as a way of utilising the natural dexterity of human hands to interact with computers.The concept allows the hand to be used as a tool to point, select,reach and even grab information or objects seen on a computer screen or in a virtual reality environment.
