Car accidents are not uncommon in India and one of the main reasons behind the accidents is the indiscipline of the motorists. There are many drivers who do not keep their distance from the vehicle in front and the braking of students causes a serious accident with several accidents. Here is one such accident between the Tata Harrier and the Hyundai Grand i10.
The information given by Nikhil Rana says the Tata Harrier and Grand i10 were part of the accident caused by a car braking suddenly. Five cars were involved in the accident and the Harrier was the last vehicle in the lineup. The photos of the accident were sent by the owner of the Harrier.
Photos show minimal damage to the Tata Harrier, while the rear of the Grand i10 was completely destroyed in the accident. The owner of the Tata Harrier also said the owner of the Grand i10 had no insurance. On the other hand, the owner of Tata Harrier said the damage to the vehicle is minimal. The owner says the Harrier, hood, windshield, fenders and front bumper were damaged, which were replaced in the workshop.
Avoid multiple vehicle collisions
In India, nobody keeps a gap with the car in front, which causes such accidents. Many such accidents have occurred in the past and such accidents can also be fatal. Can you avoid it? Surely. When following cars, always follow the three-second rule on the highways.
The 3-second rule is the rule of thumb that every car and motorcyclist on the road should follow. How do you follow the 3-second rule? Well, you have to take a solid object like a lamppost, tree or signs on the road and count the seconds after the vehicle in front of you crosses it. When your vehicle crosses the same object, it should be 3 seconds.
By following this rule, you will ensure that your vehicle remains a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you and that, in the event of emergency braking, your vehicle has enough clearance to stop in time. Heavier vehicles such as SUVs must follow the 5 second rule to keep a safe distance. Since SUVs take longer to decelerate due to the high momentum, greater distance is required.
Braking distance is affected by many factors, including tire condition and road condition. In wet conditions, the vehicles take longer to decelerate due to the lower traction, which increases the total braking distance. Therefore, vehicles have to brake in wet conditions and at high speed, which is higher than 80 km/h, the vehicles have to maintain a distance of 5 seconds from the vehicle in front.

Amazon Alexa is accessible to people outside the US; here’s how
Alexa fans outside the United States long to access the technology in their own country. Alexa was initially launched as an exclusive service in the United States in 2014.
As for 2021, the voice assistant will be accessible in over 40 countries, but you’ll have to take a different route.
Can you use Alexa in unsupported countries?
You can access Alexa outside of the United States, but Amazon has added so many barriers that it will take so much effort for it to work, according to android authority.
For starters, you’ll need an international version of the Amazon Echo Dot, a first-generation Amazon Echo Plus, or a second-generation Amazon Echo.
It should be possible for you to buy one or more of these devices on Amazon, but chances are you will have to order the device from Amazon UK, Amazon US or Amazon Germany, and it will cost quite a bit, especially at shipment.

You also need to download the Alex app for iPhone, iPad or Android. You can set up the device through Alexa’s official website alexa.amazon.com. However, the app is needed for full control over routines and settings.
If the app isn’t available in your area, you’ll need to temporarily change the location and billing settings for the Google Play Store on Android or Apple App Store for iPads and iPhones.
Please note that this step is not practical as there is a possibility that it will harm the other app subscriptions you have signed up in front of.
Some Alexa features are blocked on Amazon Echo international models. These Alexa features include shopping, news, business, and traffic.
Also, some skills will not work, such as iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Audible, which are exclusive to the United States.
In different regions, you can use TuneIn Radio, Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited. Smart home features do work, such as timers, alarms, calendar, weather, and to-do list. You can also access newsletters, as long as they are region specific.
Before purchasing an Alexa-enabled device, please check the product pages to find out what restrictions apply in your country.
Keep in mind that Alexa can speak Spanish, German or English on international Echo models, so you can only choose between the three.
Which countries support Alexa?
The countries that support Alexa are United States, United Kingdom, Austria, Germany, Japan, Canada, India, Belgium, Chile, Bulgaria, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Colombia, Cyprus, Estonia, El Salvador, Ecuador, Greece, Finland, Iceland and Hungary.
The Alexa service is also accessible in Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Malta, Peru, Panama, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal, Uruguay and Sweden.
Alexa has several abilities that are beneficial to the user, including the Alexa Guard which protects your home as it uses the microphone in the Echo devices to listen for signs of intrusion.
You can also use the Audible skill so that you can hear an audiobook read aloud. There is also a free book that you can read monthly, according to Business Insider.

Dual polarization weather radar protects us every day
On a lazy Sunday morning, I asked my Twitter followers what they would like me to write about in this space. Andrew Hatter suggested I do something on dual-polarization radar. Going through my previous articles from the past 5 years, I really hadn’t written much about it. That’s my fault, everyone. Dual polarization is a critical tool of the National Weather Service and is used daily to protect us.
First I need to give a little “weather radar 101”. Many of us teaching weather radar often cite Radio Detection and Ranging (RADAR) as a byproduct of World War II. During that time, it became very apparent that annoying “precipitation-related” noise on radar was hampering the radar’s intended military needs. However, the National Weather Service website points out that “the fundamental principle underlying all radars was first observed in 1886 by the physicist Heinrich Hertz when he discovered that electromagnetic waves could be reflected off various objects and even into beams could be focused by appropriate reflectors.” For a deep dive into the history of weather radar, visit this clutch.
At this point, I want to fast-forward to the 1950s. The WSR-57 radar system was adopted by the United States Weather Bureau and the US Navy. This was an S-band (~10 cm wavelength) system that has been the backbone of US radar weather monitoring for over 30 years. It evolved from an experimental X-band system. In the 1970s, the WSR-74 system came into use. At this point, some readers might say, “What the hell are you talking about Dr. Shepherd with all this talk about alphabet soup?
Weather radars send a pulse of microwave energy into the clouds. Some of that energy is scattered back to the radar from the volume of scattering (raindrops, hailstones, insects, and so on). The different frequencies commonly used in radar meteorology are shown in the image above. For example, the S band frequencies are less prone to attenuation than bands with lower wavelengths and have a longer range. If you have satellite TV, you know what attenuation is when it rains hard and your signal is lost.
About the time I entered college in the late 1980s, the National Weather Service, the Department of Defense, and other partners upgraded the U.S. weather radar network to the WSR-88D “S” band system. This was part of the Modernizing the National Weather Service effort in the early 1990s. These radars introduced the life-saving ability of Doppler-shifted phases. Since we know the phase (shape, position, shape, frequency) in which the radar beam was emitted, as scatterers (raindrops, etc.) move will shift the phase of the returning radar echo. From that information we can deduce the speed towards or away from the radar (radial speed is not a real wind speed by the way). This Doppler effect also explains why the pitch of the train’s horn sounds different as it approaches and moves away from you. With such information, meteorologists can now detect rotation in storms that could indicate a tornado. In fact, most tornado warnings today are based on Doppler radar identification. My master’s degree involved using early WSR-88D radar data to track and locate landfall hurricanes.
Okay, we’ve finally reached dual polarization. According to NOAA website“Dual-polarimetric radar transmits and receives pulses in both horizontal and vertical directions.” This means that the returned echoes contain information in both directions about the raindrops, snowflakes, sleet and hailstones. Better information about the shape, size and composition of the targets allows for better discrimination of the type of precipitation (e.g. is it heavy rain or hail? or is it snow or icy rain?) There are even products that can be derived from dual-polarization radar that can help identify tornado-related debris in real time and improve rainfall estimation.
The National Weather Service began the transition to dual-polarization radar in early 2010. According to the National Weather Service, the first upgraded “dual-pol” system (NWS WSR-88DP) at Vance Air Force Base near Enid, Oklahoma. Since this installation in 2011, the National Weather Service has upgraded more than 150 operational radars in the US and its territories.
The image above is a good example of how dual polarization products (correlation coefficient (CC) and differential reflectivity (ZDR) supplemented standard reflectivity products and Doppler rotational patterns (SRM) to confirm that the radar sampled tornado debris thrown into the air. below illustrates how dual polarization radar helped forecasters better determine the location of rainfall versus snowfall in New York.
For more information on how dual polarization is used in weather forecasting, visit this: NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory website.
