You can insert the YouTube movies into your PowerPoint slides to express your idea or better way to communicate something. You can convey these ideas in more effective ways, if you are using movie files with your simple slides.
Follow the given steps to add YouTube movies into PowerPoint slides:
First of all download the YouTube.com movies and then save on your computer hard drive. Mostly movies are available in flash video file format on YouTube site. You can convert also the downloaded movies from YouTube into any common format, for example, windows media video file (wmv), windows video file (avi) and movie file (mpeg).
First of all open the presentation in which you want to insert movie file.
Now click on "Movies and Sounds" option from the Insert" menu and choose the option "Movie from File".
Now select your movie that you want to insert into slide and click on Ok button.
Here now you are asked "Do you want your movie to play automatically in the slide show? If not, it will play when you click it."
Recommend choosing Ok button to play automatically even if you want the movie to play when clicked.
Finally save your PowerPoint presentation and run it for test.
The GRE or Graduate Record Exam is required for admission to most U.S., Canadian, and UK graduate schools. Most students attend graduate business school for pursuing an Master degree. In addition, GRE can also be used for admission to PhD program.
What does GRE test?
The GRE general test does not test specific knowledge in any subject. It measures the ability to respond to questions in limited time.The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a multiple-choice exam designed to measure verbal, analytical, and quantitative skills. The GRE General Test, required by most graduate schools, many vet schools, and various other allied health professional schools, is considered to be a good predictor of your success in a graduate program. GRE Subject Tests (in 17 specific areas, e.g. Psychology, Biology, Chemistry) are often required for graduate school (Ph.D.) admission, but not generally for health fields.
Your preparation for the GRE General Test should be similar to that described above for the MCAT . . . no last minute cramming, etc. There are many good self-help books at local bookstores with sample exams. You should at least review such a publication before you take the GRE. There are seven sections to the GRE General Test:
Two Verbal Sections (38 questions and 30 min each) Two Quantitative Sections (30 questions and 30 min each) Two Analytical Sections (25 questions and 30 min each) One Experimental Section (30 min)
The Experimental section is not scored, nor is it identified in the exam booklet. It may be of a verbal, quantitative, or analytical nature.
There are some important facts to remember when taking the GRE General Test. First, each question is worth the same number of points, no matter how hard or easy it is. Second, in each section except the reading comprehension questions (in the Verbal Section), the questions tend to go from easy to difficult. Therefore, it is foolhardy to spend too much time on early questions when you know that later ones will probably take even longer. You have somewhere around one minute or less to answer each question (on the average), so budget your time effectively. Finally, when in doubt, guess. Do not leave a question unanswered. There are no penalties on the General Test for wrong answers.
The GRE is offered five times a year at test centers throughout the state. Tests are always on Saturday in February, April, June, October, and December. You may obtain a registration form from the Fort Lewis College Career Placement Office, or by writing:
Graduate Record Examinations Educational Testing Service CN 60000 Princeton, NJ 08541-60000
Your raw score (number of correct answers) is converted to a score on a scale of 200-800. If you miss all the questions, you still score 200. An 800 score can be achieved even if you miss one or two questions. The Verbal, Quantitative, and Analytical scores are reported separately as scaled scores - you will also receive a percentile rank (indicating the percent of total examinees scoring below your score). Scores are mailed to you about six weeks after the test date.

Bill Gates is considered as a great man. Many people look up to him. And a lot of people are inspired by his life. But then again like any other human being he also has his own mistakes. Here are the top 10 mistakes of Bill Gates.
The man created a software monopoly and in return he got so many lawsuits for it.Bill Gates is still fighting with lawsuits.The source on Wikipedia clearly stated that
United States v. Microsoft was a set of consolidated civil actions filed against Microsoft Corporation on May 18, 1998 by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) and 20 U.S. states. Joel I. Klein was the lead prosecutor.The trial started on May 18, 1998 with the U.S. Justice Department and the Attorneys General of twenty U.S. states suing Microsoft for illegally thwarting competition in order to protect and extend its software monopoly.
Bill Gates did not consider opensource. His business strategies alwayscounter opensource principles and paradigm.You may be interested in his open-source debate In a Fortune magazine he clearly says that
It’s easier for our software to compete with Linux when there’s piracy than when there’s not.
The Windows OS made Mr. Gates the richest man in the world. But its latest iteration is bombarded with lots of negative criticisms.
He allowed Windows Mobile to happen. Did he run out of innovative ideas so he settled for a miniature Windows OS for mobile phone. He could have put up a team to design the OS from ground up.
He let DOS die. It was a promising OS and a very stable one.
Bill Gates did not think of cloud computing probably because of his proprietary Windows OS. But this is definitely one of his biggest mistakes.
He allowed Windows Millennium edition to be released. The OS was definitely a reflection of the lack of talents from Microsoft. It failed the expectation of the people. It was premature.
He ignored search. Look what happened to Google now. Bill Gates already made some moves about search in the end of the 90s and it was definitely a mistake to trash it.Scobleizer once revealed in his post that
Look at my last post. Now read this one over on Live Side. It’s a short report that Microsoft executives are bragging to MVPs that "we’re in it to win.”
Canadian center for Electron Microscopy has developed a new powerful microscope that is world's most powerful microscope till date. According to Gianluigi Botton, Director of Canadian center for Electron Microscopy, says that the power of this microscope can be thought as equivalent to "taking Hubble Telescope and aiming it at atomic level".
Titan 80-300 Cubed
This powerful microscope named Titan 80-300 Cubed was installed at the University early in the summer, and since then it has been put through its paces to achieve unprecedented resolution. This microscope is so powerful that it can easily identify atoms, measure their chemical state and even probe the electrons that bind them together.
According to vice-president of Mc Master, Mr. Elbestawi this microscope will make McMaster a hub for a fast growing field.
Really Impressive Microscope
A group of international scientists who visited McMaster were really impressed by the amazing capabilities of this microscope. This microscope can help scientist to discover new things in biological and physical sciencesDean of Engineering David Wilkinson sees the microscope through another lens.
Titan's ability can probe structure of solid materials to the atomic level and this will have an amazing impact on development and commercialization of new technologies from biomedical devices to water quality monitoring and improved energy storage systems.
Cost of Microscope
This microscope has been build in Netherlands by FEI Company with a cost of about $15 million. This microscope can help to examine everyday products with its Nano details that can improve the efficiency of these products.
What This Microscope Can Do?
This microscope can be used to produce more efficient lighting and better solar cells, to study proteins and drug-delivery materials to target cancers. It will assess atmospheric particulates, and help create lighter and stronger automotive materials, more effective cosmetics, and higher density memory storage for faster electronic and telecommunication devices.
Funding for the microscope instrumentation was provided by the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Ontario Innovation Trust, the Ministry of Research and Innovation of Ontario and the Ontario Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, through a partnership with FEI and McMaster University.

Astronomers at UCLA, Tennessee State University and theCalifornia Institute of Technology have reported that two terrestrial planets orbiting a mature sun-like star some 300 light-years from Earth recently suffered a violent collision."
Astronomer are now writing a report on this event in December issue of the Astrophysical Journal.
ACCORDING TO ASTRONOMERS:
According to Benjamin Zuckerman, (Professor of physics and astronomy in UCLA), this collision was just like if Earth and Venus collided with each other,". It is the first time that Astronomers have seen such collision. Co-author of the report and astronomer in Tennessee State University, Dr. Gregory Henry says, "If any life was present on either planet, the massive collision would have wiped out everything in a matter of minutes - the ultimate extinction event." After that collision a massive disk of infrared-emitting dust has encircled the star.
HOW THE REASEARCH CAME OUT:
Zuckerman, Henry and Michael Muno, were studying a star BD+20307 located in the constellation Aries and surrounded by a 1 million times more dust than is orbiting our sun. These astronomers gathered X-ray data using the orbiting Chandra X-ray Observatory and brightness data from one of TSU's automated telescopes in southern Arizona, hoping to measure the age of the star.
They thought that BD+20 307 was relatively young, a few hundred million years old , with the massive dust ring which signals the final stages in the formation of the star's planetary system. But Alycia Weinberger of Carnegie Institution of Washington announced that BD+20 307 is actually a close binary star means two stars orbiting around their common center of mass.
The new spectroscopic data collected after this announcement confirmed that BD+20 307 is composed of two stars, both very similar in mass, temperature and size to our own sun and they orbit about their common center of mass every 3.42 days. Further research also shown that these stars are much more older than estimated before. Instead of few hundred million years these stars are several billion years old.
The planetary collision in BD+20 307 was not observed directly but rather was inferred from the extraordinary quantity of dust particles that orbit the binary pair at about the same distance as Earth and Venus are from our sun. Henry said. "If this dust does indeed point to the presence of terrestrial planets, then this represents the first known example of planets of any mass in orbit around a close binary star."
BD+20 307: THE EARLIER THOUGHTS
Zuckerman and colleagues first reported in the journal Nature in July 2005 that BD+20 307, then still thought to be a single star, was surrounded by more warm orbiting dust than any other sun-like star known to astronomers. The dust is orbiting the binary system very closely, where Earth-like planets are most likely to be and where dust typically cannot survive long. Small dust particles get pushed away by stellar radiation, while larger pieces get reduced to dust in collisions within the disk and are then whisked away.
Thus, the dust-forming collision near BD+20 307 must have taken place rather recently, probably within the past few hundred thousand years and perhaps much more recently, the astronomers said.
NOW THE TWO IMPORTANT QUESTION IS:
After this all research the two most important questions before astronomers are:
1.) How do planetary orbits become destabilized in such an old, mature system?
2) Could such a collision happen in our own solar system?
According to some esteemed astronomers, there is small probability for collisions of Mercury with Earth or Venus sometime in the next billion years or more.
According to Zuckerman, major collisions have occurred in our solar system's in past. It is believed by many astronomers that our moon was formed from the collision of two planetary embryos - the young Earth and a body about the size of Mars - a crash which created tremendous debris, some of which condensed to form the moon and some of which went into orbit around the young sun. The collision of an asteroid with Earth 65 million years ago, which ultimately resulted in the demise of dinosaurs is also an example of such collision.
