Passage

I come from haunts of coot and hern,

I make a sudden sally

And sparkle out among the fern,

To bicker down a valley.

By thirty hills I hurry down,

Or slip between the ridges,

By twenty thorpes, a little town,

And half a hundred bridges.

Till last by Philip’s farm I flow

To join the brimming river,

For men may come and men may go,

But I go on for ever.

I chatter over stoney ways,

In little shaprs and trebles,

I bubble into eddying bays,

I bubble on the pebbles.

With many a curve my banks I fret

By many a field and fallow,

And many a fairy foreland set

With willow weed and mallow.

I chatter, chatter, as I flow

To join the brimming river,

For men may come and men may go,

but I go on for ever.

I wind about, and in and out,

With here a blossom sailing,

And here and there a lusty trout,

And here and there a grayling,

And here and there a foamy flake

Upom me, as I travel

With many a silvery waterbreak

Above the golden gravel,

And draw them all along, and flow

To join the brimming river

For men may come and men may go,

But I go on for ever.

I steal by lawns and grassy plots,

I slide by hazel covers;

I move the sweet forget-me-nots

That grow for happy lovers.

I slip, I slide, I gloom, I glance,

Among my skimming swallows;

I make the netted sunbeam dance

Against my sandy shallows.

I murmur under Moon and Stars

In brambly wildernesses;

I linger by my shingly bars;

I loiter round my cresses;

And out again I curve and flow

To join the brimming river,

For men may come and men may go,

But I go on Forever.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

Passage

When I learned that my 72 years old mother was playing scrabble against herself, I knew, I had to do something. “Who is playing? ” I asked one day when I saw a half finished game on the table. “My right hand versus my left”. “Excuse me” I said. “As your father does not plays with me and I want to keep my mind engaged and sharp. ” An adorable pursuit, but I questioned whether my mother’s solitary version of scrabble would achieve that objectives. My husband suggested we should give her a computer to play against. I wasn’t sure my mother was ready for a cyber scrabble it had taken 10 years to convince her to purchase a microwave. Nevertheless, we packed up our old PC, complete with scabble and a word processing program and delivered it to my parent’s home. And so began my mother’s journey in the exciting world of computers. It also marked as the starting of a unique teaching assignment for me. I’ve taught children and adults of all ages, but never thought, I would be teaching my mother to do anything. Inspite of, the fear on her face when she first saw our gift, my mother was very excited to get started. She sat astonished and amazed on the screen lit up and the various icons presented themselves. Slowly, but surely my mother caught on, preparing notes in a mini spiral book. I wondered how she’d far without me. But thereafter, she only spoke on her game on the computer to me. She even forgot to ask her stock question, “What did you have for supper? ” It was no longer on the agenda. She talked about RAM, ROM and CPU terms spilled out effortlessly from her mother. My mother had learned a new mother tongue.

After a lifetime of being her child, I was finally the one with knowledge to share with my mummy. But even now, I realise she continuous to teach me. I understand the fact that its not the matter of age, its the “willing spirit which is capable of anything”.

Passage

The fossil remains of the first flying vertebrates, the ptrerosaurs have intrigued paleontologists for more than two centuries. How such large creatures, which had wingspans from 8 to 12 meters, solved the problems of powered flight and exactly who these creatures were reptiles or birds are among the questions scientists have puzzles over.

Perhaps the least controversial assertion about the pterosaurs is that they were reptiles. Their skulls, pelvises and hind feet are reptilian. The anatomy of their wings suggests that they did not evolve into the class of birds. In pterosaurs, a greatly elongated fourth finger of each forelimb supported a wing like membrane. In birds the second finger is the principle strut of the wing. If the pterosaur walked or remained stationary, the fourth finger and with it the wing, could only turn upward in an extended inverted V-shape alongside of the animal’s body. Both the pterosaurs and the birds have hollow bones, a feature that represents a saving in weight. In the birds, however, these bones are reinforced more massively by internal struts.

Although, scales typically cover reptiles, the pterosaurs probably had hairy coats. The recent discovery of a pterosaur specimen covered in long, dense and relatively thick hair like fossil material was the first clear evidence that this reasoning was correct. Efforts to explain how the pterosaurs became air borne have led to suggestions that they launched themselves by jumping from cliffs, by dropping from trees or even by rising into light winds from the crests of waves.
