Traffic police can no longer lie about their whereabouts

Their Icom 2 way radio will have GPRS to enable higher-ups to track their location

Traffic police carrying walkie-talkies will no longer be able to lie about their location to their higher-ups. If they are not in the junction allotted to them, their walkie-talkies will nail their lie, thanks to the GPRS loaded on them.

The new versions will be monitored from the Traffic Management Centre (TMC) where the control room is located. B Dayananda, additional commissioner of police (traffic and security), said, “Within a second of the personnel responding to the call, his location will be traced by those monitoring at the TMC. Each of the existing instruments were used by two constables; one from the first shift and the other from the second. This created a further problem of trying to know who was using it and where. Now every cop will be given an individual instrument with a GPRS connection.”

The traffic police will start using the new walkie-talkies from the second week of April. In the first phase, 250 sets will be given to cops manning important junctions in the city. The total requirement is 1,000 sets for entire city.

Why aren’t we smarter already Evolutionary limits on cognition

My basic review of this new article it begins well, looks quite awesome, is simple to run and actually power resourceful, the walkie talkie iphone case really is a fine product. I’m happy I purchased it, read further underneath.

(Medical Xpress) — We put a lot of energy into improving our memory, intelligence, and attention. There are even drugs that make us sharper, such as Ritalin and caffeine. But maybe smarter isn’t really all that better. A new paper published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, warns that there are limits on how smart humans can get, and any increases in thinking ability are likely to come with problems.
The authors looked to evolution to understand about why humans are only as smart as we are and not any smarter. “A lot of people are interested in drugs that can enhance cognition in various ways,” says Thomas Hills of the University of Warwick, who cowrote the article with Ralph Hertwig of the University of Basel. “But it seems natural to ask, why aren’t we smarter already?”
Tradeoffs are common in evolution. It might be nice to be eight feet tall, but most hearts couldn’t handle getting blood up that high. So most humans top out under six feet. Just as there are evolutionary tradeoffs for physical traits, Hills says, there are tradeoffs for intelligence. A baby’s brain size is thought to be limited by, among other things, the size of the mother’s pelvis; bigger brains could mean more deaths in childbirth, and the pelvis can’t change substantially without changing the way we stand and walk.
Drugs like Ritalin and amphetamines help people pay better attention. But they often only help people with lower baseline abilities; people who don’t have trouble paying attention in the first place can actually perform worse when they take attention-enhancing drugs. That suggests there is some kind of upper limit to how much people can or should pay attention. “This makes sense if you think about a focused task like driving,” Hills says, “where you have to pay attention, but to the right things—which may be changing all the time. If your attention is focused on a shiny billboard or changing the channel on the 2 Way Radio, you’re going to have problems.”
It may seem like a good thing to have a better memory, but people with excessively vivid memories have a difficult life. “Memory is a double-edged sword,” Hills says. In post-traumatic stress disorder, for example, a person can’t stop remembering some awful episode. “If something bad happens, you want to be able to forget it, to move on.”
Even increasing general intelligence can cause problems. Hills and Hertwig cite a study of Ashkenazi Jews, who have an average IQ much higher than the general European population. This is apparently because of evolutionary selection for intelligence in the last 2,000 years. But, at the same time, Ashkenazi Jews have been plagued by inherited diseases like Tay-Sachs disease that affect the nervous system. It may be that the increase in brain power has caused an increase in disease.
Given all of these tradeoffs that emerge when you make people better at thinking, Hills says, it’s unlikely that there will ever be a supermind. “If you have a specific task that requires more memory or more speed or more accuracy or whatever, then you could potentially take an enhancer that increases your capacity for that task,” he says. “But it would be wrong to think that this is going to improve your abilities all across the board.”
