Urgent blood needed for a baby - Hoax message

We have been receiving a few hoax messages regularly (atleast once in a month). Messages like We have found Gold in a palace, we’ll give it to you at half rate", "You have won lottery", "I have something to share with you, please contact through email", "Urgent blood needed for a baby" etc.
One such message is
"Plz plz forward this msg urgengtlyy.. Atleast to 10 frndz a baby need AB NEGATIVE BLOOD  immediately..
Contact
7036325803
9666914994
9542025814
9972669722
Dont delete...  Ur small sms will save a child"
We forward such messages to our friends immediately without second thought because its for a noble cause. Since I’m associated with a few good hearted groups who regularly donate blood with the help of the voluntary blood donors, before forwarding such messages we always have the habit of calling the phone number and check if there is a real need for blood. Because some times those messages are rumours or may be the need for the blood would have already been met. Calling these numbers and checking would save the unnecessary time that would have been wasted in forwarding the messages and the travel time of the donors.
When I got the above message for the first time a couple of months back, I tried calling the phone number and it was switched off. I have been getting the same message more than thrice in the last two months and whenever I tried that number, its switched off. The operator says “The vodafone number is switched off”. So it’s very clear that its a hoax message and it wastes the time of each and everyone who reads the message and forward the message. Had I forwarded the same message to hundreds and thousands of my contacts, I would have wasted their time as well.
So with this post I would like to request you all to call the contact numbers when you get such messages and confirm the real need before forwarding the message to your bulk contacts or groups. I also understand that at times we are real busy and we don’t have time to cross check it and hence we just like that forward the message to our friends, so that atleast someone helps the needy. This is with good intention, I agree. However when we have little time, then we can try to cross check. Small amount of time spent by us will save large amount of time of others, when we find the cumulative saving of time.

Video calls are going live on WhatsApp

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, so even small changes warrant some attention. This isn't a small change, though. This is a big one. WhatsApp is rolling out support for video calls in the Android app, but not everyone has the feature yet.
Video calls are becoming available seemingly at random. You won't need an app update as long as you're on one of the recent beta versions (people are reporting success on a few builds). If the person on the other end doesn't have video calling enabled yet they'll just get a voice call. You'll still be able to see the video calling UI, though. The call log shows that as a video call, but tapping the video button just pulls up an error message.
When you have video calling, tapping the call button or contact card brings up a dialog with both voice and video as options. There may be a version of the app later that flips the switch on video calls automatically, but for now you're at the mercy of the WhatsApp gods.
How to activate Video Calling feature?
Just install 2.16.318 or above version (beta version available here) and enjoy Video Calling on WhatsApp.

Hike Messenger on Android now supports video calling

Hike Messenger has introduced its video calling feature for its users on Android, iOS users might have to wait a while.

Hike Messenger has introduced its video calling feature for its users, aiming to make India a ‘sight and sound’ country. The company had rolled out the beta back in September to a select few, but now that it is out of testing – the new feature will be rolling out to all Android users with an update this week.
The Hike team says that the video call experience with the app will be ‘simple, reliance and high quality’. “Video calling on Hike is a simple and easy to use feature that works on a single tap that is integrated into chat threads with friends. The feature has been built for a reliance and high quality video experience that works even under challenging network conditions, including good quality 2G,” the company said in a press statement.
Another feature of the update messenger is the ‘Live Caller Preview’, which gives a user the ability to see a preview of a live video before they answer the call. Hike thinks that this feature adds to the fun of video calling.
Commenting on the launch, Kavin Bharti Mittal, Founder and CEO, Hike Messenger said “This was an obvious one and we’re excited to bring it to the market so quickly. We’ve been in beta for a few months and the results have been really positive. We’re now excited to roll this out across our entire user base. We see India as primarily a sight and sound market — and we believe video calling will have a large impact on how people communicate inside of Hike.”
The video calling update for the app is immediately available to all Android users, and will be coming soon for users using iOS. If some users have updated their Hike Messenger app in September, video calling will automatically be enabled for them now.
WhatsApp also recently updated its beta app to features video calling for Android. The video calling feature was hinted for WhatsApp back in July. The video-calling feature is also available on Facebook Messenger, Hangouts, KakaoTalk, Viber and now Hike Messenger.

With space on campus and dedicated interns, MSU’s official Sayaji FM targets more audience

BHUPENDRA RANAVadodara

Sayaji FM, MSU’s online radio station, will reach more ears this academic year, commencing June 15.  The students’ radio station, which was adopted by MSU in March this year but used to run from the residence of its founder Yogesh Jangir due to lack of space on campus, will now get a place in the prestigious Smt. Hansa Mehta Library building.
Dedicated interns from the Student Internship Programme launched last year will churn out fresh content.
Currently, there are more than 40 dedicated interns from all the faculties. There are 12 RJs, selected from the ‘RJ hunt programme’ that conducted on the campus last year. Students use the recording studio of Faculty of Performing Arts. Interviews of prominent personalities of Vadodara, audio clips of important lectures, and light music programmes are in the schedule list.
Jangir said, “With this dedicated space for our radio, we will produce more interesting content which can be useful to all MSU students. We are surprised that former students of MSU, who are settled outside India are listening to our programmes. We are uploading our content on the third party online websites at present, but we are working on application which will make the access easy.”
“Students who are working as interns are very dedicated… they are also working during the vacation,” he said.
MSU Syndicate member Jigar Inamdar said, “We have adopted Sayaji FM as an official radio station of MSU. This year, we have allotted space in Smt. Hansa Mehta Library to this team. Right now, it is an online radio and we will experiment with the same format… our plan is to make it a full-fledged radio station for MSU.”
Aditya Hore (19), student of first year of Bachelor of Commerce, who is working as an intern on the radio platform, said, “I was selected as RJ to work with radio project during my internship programme… it was a very useful learning as RJ.”

Radionomy Stream Update!

For the last two weeks, we've experienced a change with our Radionomy stream. The company has implemented a "Geo-Block" on strategically targeted countries. Listeners are unable to listen to our stream and are either given a notice or re-routed to a station that plays "lounge music". All stations on the network are affected by this change.

Countries Affected by Radionomy's Geo-Block

Russia
Japan
Canada
The Philippines
South Africa
Brazil
Venezuela
Peru
Chile
Taiwan
Colombia
Bolivia
Countries formerly in Yugoslavia
(e.g. Serbia, Croatia)
Turkey
Romania
India
Ukraine

If you live in these countries, we've come up with solutions so you can listen.
  • Listen Sayaji FM on YourMuze.FM. - We've developed an alternate source for affected listeners. This media player has not had any issues with our stream and all listeners can access it without any problems.
  • Purchase a Virtual Private Network (VPN) - By obtaining a VPN, you can bypass the Geo-Block by logging into an IP address in another country that's not affected. We recommend VPN Express, which has affordable plans and is available on iTunes and Google Play.
  • Download Opera Web Browser - This web browser has a free VPN feature that can mask the user's computer. Choose the country you wish to listen. You can also get Opera on iOS operating systems.
Listeners in the United States are not affected by this issue, yet. There has been no official notice or explanation given by Radionomy executives regarding why this change was necessary. Producers were outraged by this change and many have decided to leave for other providers. We are looking at the current litigation between Radionomy and Sony Music, which may affect listeners down the road.

In the meantime, we are taking steps to insure our future by looking for other companies who can service us. Many of these costs were originally covered by Live365 under a blanket fee. But because of their demise, we will have to absorb the cost ourselves. The costs of broadcasting for small radio stations have skyrocketed, specifically in music licensing.

'Sayaji FM' will give MS univ students new voice


The MaharajaSayajirao University of Baroda launched its Online Radio Station - ‘Sayaji FM’. The RJ Yogesh Jangir said that the radio will give a new voice to the M. S. University students. At present the university jingles, pre-recorded social messages and a few Hindi songs are played on the radio but in a few days all activities on the campus will go on air.

With little help coming from M S University authorities, two former university students have decided to take forward their dream of having the university’s own community radio station (CRS) by launching an Internet radio and a mobile-based application to access the radio, called “Sayaji FM”. It can be streamed live on both web and mobile platform.

RJ YogeshJangir, 26, first tried to give shape his dream of starting a CRS for MSU students in 2011, when he was pursuing his B.Sc. Geology. RJ Yogesh started learning to build a radio transmitter from video tutorials on the Internet. He then developed a 1.5 watt radio transmitter which could transmit signals within one-two kilometers.

Playing the radio jockey himself, RJ Yogesh recorded a few poetries, a collection of information related to students, posted on the department notice board and relayed them through his makeshift transmitter first on January 13, 2011. A former radio jockey, RJ Raaj Khidia collaborated on the project.

“I carried the transmitter on the terrace of the Geology department of the university and started broadcasting on a small range of frequencies. We ran the service from 09:00am to 06:00pm daily for around a year and then disbanded it, considering that transmitting this way could be illegal. When we started the radio, we received an appreciation letter from the VC” said RJ Yogesh.

When he was pursuing his M.Sc. Petroleum Geology, his radio station also drew the attention of syndicate members of the university, who discussed about having a CRS for the MSU which could be relayed on a 50 watt transmitter. RJ Yogesh and RJ Raaj were also offered a studio space above the H.M. Library.

Now, after completion of his study, the community radio is in its newest avatar in the form of Sayaji FM, which can be accessed here, or can be downloaded as an App from Radio.Net or TuneIn on any smartphone.

Sayaji FM RJs will be seen interacting with the young crowd and playing interesting games for all working days in the MSU campus. Sayaji FM team will also conduct RJ Hunt in MSU campus to select RJs from MSU students and various competitions, i.e. Singing Competition etc., to bring out the hidden talent of students. We’ll focus on exploring hidden talent of students. It will be a big platform for talented students.” RJ Yogesh added.

Sayaji FM will also set up the radio booth in campus to provide round the clock educational information, entertainment by playing variety of announcements and music played on air. Sayaji FM will also conduct RJ Hunt where the winner will get a chance to co-host the show some on air shows LIVE from the MSU campus.

Speaking on the occasion, RJ Yogesh said "It is our endeavor to get associated with this high energy college festivals. This will give us a better chance to interact and integrate with the young students - who are our core target listeners. We would ensure that we provide non-stop contests, announcements, entertainment etc to not only the students but also to all the listeners who would be hearing us."
