The lust of love

Image
She stretched out lazily on her bed. The delicious tiredness invading her body and the dis-arrayed pillows, scattered all about the floor, were the only testaments of the wild time she had the night before. Sinking back into the duvet, she closed her eyes and reflected back. The memory of every single touch, taste, and kiss, came rushing, suffusing her body with the glorious heat, reminiscent of what he had made her feel with each touch of his.



She remembered his urgency: the way he had impatiently tugged aside the bodice of her midnight-blue dress, to expose her creamy bosom, the way he had cupped her in his palms, gently squeezing and then roughly tasting. She remembered his admiration: how he had attempted wet kisses down her front, an open-mouthed lick to each of the skin that got exposed as he slowly pulled her dress down.

She remembered his arousal: his unique taste on her tongue, his unique scent- the intrinsic maleness and an earthy cologne blended into a harmony which left h…

Step 1. Open https://register.com.np/ In the check domain availability box, enter your domain name. Please make sure you enter the spelling of your name as given in your identity document. You can use your first name or even last name, but as far as I would suggest use your full name.








If your desired domain is not available, please try a combination of your name and initials. Note: For personal domains, you can only use .com.np as of now.


Step 2. If your domain is available then you will get a "Register now" button. Click on Register now. After clicking on Register now, you'll be prompted to sign…

Using Machine learning to detect Diabetic Retinopathy

Image
Lily Peng, MD, PhD belonging from medicine background joined Google where she started working as Product Manager for medical imaging. In my previous post, I explained how deep learning was used to classify skin lesions as benign, malignant or one of their sub-types.
A specific type of neural network optimized for image classification called a deep convolutional neural network was trained using a retrospective development data set of 128 175 retinal images, which were graded 3 to 7 times for diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema, and image gradability by a panel of 54 US licensed ophthalmologists and ophthalmology senior residents between May and December 2015. The resultant algorithm was validated in January and February 2016 using 2 separate data sets, both graded by at least 7 US board-certified ophthalmologists with high intragrader consistency.
In this evaluation of retinal fundus photographs from adults with diabetes, an algorithm based on deep machine learning had high s…

A simple explanation of Artificial Intelligence for people not belonging to the tech sector.

Image
“Artificial Intelligence”, “Deep Learning”, “Machine Learning”, etc. has become the talk of the town. One must be living under the rock if they’ve not heard one of these terms in recent times. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is no more a fantasy of science fiction, it has started to become a reality. From Search, Photo tagging, recommendations, etc. to self-driving cars and facial recognition, AI is getting seamlessly integrated into all the internet-driven modern technologies today, and we are slowly getting habituated to it, knowingly or unknowingly. The hype is so high that Apple recently added an extra processor in its latest flagship iPhone X exclusively for AI processing.


Researches and development of AI have been started since the times of Alan Turing but it suddenly exploded into the news when an AI-driven software made by DeepMind of Google defeated a world champion of an ancient Chinese board game “Go”. This was a big deal because Go has as many moves possible as the number of…

Classifying normal and abnormal heart sounds using Artficial Intelliigence

Image
Well, learning different types of murmur is a cumbersome process for a medical student. It usually requires hours of practice to be able to differentiate between a normal heartbeat or heartbeat with a murmur or extra added sounds.

This is my first project on Deep Learning. I have used the dataset of heart sounds from http://www.peterjbentley.com/heartchallenge/. The heart sounds in the data is neither sufficient nor neat. But I had to start somewhere, and I choose this as I found the idea of teaching a computer to detect a murmur fascinating.I've used Python library numpy/scipy and librosa.

Click here to how the AI works.

The datasets are not neat but still, the Support Vector Machine of SkLearn works pretty good in classifying the heart sound with or without murmur. I am still working on it to make it better at recognizing heart sounds for the real-world purpose.

The code goes here.

And the love died

Image
His entrance examination was in two weeks. He had already lost 4 years trying for it. His parents could hardly bear his hostel expenditures, studying MBBS in paying was completely out of context. But he wanted to be a doctor since he could even spell the word "doctor" properly. All his friends were in some colleges now doing undergraduate and some even about to complete it. He had become the biggest example of failure for his friends and relatives thus he avoided any sort of social interactions. Amid all these inevitable darkness, he too had a source of sunshine in his life, her name was Ahaana. She was the source of happiness and calmness for him, in fact,  the only source. She was the color to his monochromatic life, the soothing voice in his chaotic world. She had also become two years senior to him though they're of same high school batch. But she had promised never to leave him at any cost and always be there for him.

A story about Megastar Sylvester Stallone that will inspire you to the core

Image
This is one of the SADDEST stories ever told in Hollywood. His name is Sylvester Stallone. One of the BIGGEST and Most famous American Movie superstars. Back in the day, Stallone was a struggling actor in every definition. At some point, he got so broke that he stole his wife’s jewelry and sold it. Things got so bad that he even ended up homeless. Yes, he slept at the New York bus station for 3 days. Unable to pay rent or afford food. His lowest point came when he tried to sell his dog at the liquor store to any stranger. He didn’t have money to feed the dog anymore. He sold it at $25 only. He says he walked away crying. Two weeks later, he saw a boxing match between Mohammed Ali and Chuck Wepner and that match gave him the inspiration to write the script for the famous movie, ROCKY. He wrote the script for 20 hours! He tried to sell it and got an offer for $125,000 for the script. But he had just ONE REQUEST. He wanted to STAR in the movie. He wanted to be the MAIN ACTOR, Rocky himsel…

The funniest romantic love letter ever written with the best pickup lines

Image
Hello. Are you taking any applications for a boyfriend?

Ever since I met you, you've lived in my heart without paying any rent. When I saw u, there must be something wrong with my eyes, I couldn't take them off you.

Fascinating. I've been looking at your eyes in your Facebook pictures all day long, 'cause I've never seen such dark eyes with so much light in them. Most people like to watch the world cup because they only happen once every 4 years, but I'd rather talk to you cause the chance of meeting someone so special only happens once in a lifetime. You must be tired because you've been running through my mind all the time.


Excuse me, I don't want you to think I'm ridiculous or anything, but you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I just felt like I had to tell you. When I saw you the first time, 4 a moment I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Now I see that I am very much alive, and heaven has been brought to me. If a thousand pa…

Image
What is diabetes? Diabetes Mellitus has become an epidemic. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 346 million people suffer from diabetes worldwide. Diabetes can be prevented, even brought under control by proper diet and medications but Diabetes becomes highly fatal if one ignores it. Diabetes compromises our immune system that can lead to various persistent infections, forms atherosclerosis(fatty deposits in blood vessels) which can cause Hypertension(High BP), Angina(Chest pain that  resides on resting) and even Myocardial Infarction(Heart Attack) as well as causes hyperglycemia(increase in blood glucose level) which can cause brain hemorrhages, coma, etc. What are the causes of diabetes? The first thing whenever someone thinks about or remains always curious to know is what causes the diabetes. Diabetes is causes due to deficiency of a hormone(chemicals that regulates our internal systems) named “insulin” which is produced by pancreas. Insulin helps in the prope…

Image
Well, you decided to start reading a book. Movies and series don't excite you anymore. Or maybe, you want to grow and you seriously feel books will lead you the path to personal growth. Or even, some big celebrity suggested that one should read books. Whatever the reasons are, the truth is books are the gateway to not just knowledge but happiness and once you start reading good books nothing else would be as fascinating as good books. So feel proud of yourself for deciding to read a book.
So which book to read? There are literally millions of books in varieties of languages and it is tough to choose one. Honestly, the selection of books depends on preference and genre but still, I have attempted to recommend some books which are in simple language but grasping enough to make you an avid reader.

TV shows and series that are so relatable

Image
Sometimes, everything starts falling apart or we cannot grasp what's happening with us. We want to run away from everything or talk with someone who can understand us. We need someone or some kind of support but opening up is not as easy as said. And it's not possible for everyone to have someone to talk to in times of need. Or sometimes we just feel lonely whatsoever or feel too bored to do anything. Sometimes we have a feeling of vain without any reason. During those times, I personally lean to TV shows and series, because it feels that the characters are true and they are understanding us. We feel relatable and in some ways, it soothes us. Below are some of the series, that I personally recommend to people at times when they are feeling vain or maybe just too bored with life.

13 Reasons Why It's a series about Hannah, a young woman who takes her own life and leaves a set of tapes in which she explains 13 reasons why she had to kill herself. The male lead is Clay, her c…
