The prideful week of the year….
Independence Day – one of the most remarkable days of Indian history. Ré wishes everyone a heartwarming Independence Day wishes!!!
Yes!!! It was another important and hyper-active week for Ré.
The Funding Team worked full-fledged on collecting budget details of every project and documenting them for further proceedings.
On the entire team meet on Wednesday the Résolution tribe accompanied us for the event where we had a fun filled role play activity to obtain solutions to a problem. Everyone figured out new perspectives to come up with unique and smart solutions.
EXPLORATION CIRCLE- MACHINE LEARNING:
Exploration and understanding are opportunities to create deeper and more meaningful connections. Ré believes Exploration circles will encourage such atmosphere in KCT deliberately. This Friday, exploration circle on machine learning had its first meeting at our workspace.
It is evident from the first exploration circle, that KCT would love the existence of such circles. It’s time to explore your own ideas and also learn from your peers. Circles strive to create great learning experiences with depth of knowledge gluing together like-minded communities. Ré is looking out for such circles to come up with new technologies in inventions, food and health care, art and culture, language and literature and more in the upcoming days.
This week, KCT had acquired the fitness fever syndrome.
The Coimbatore Dusk Marathon’s second edition, in aid of the physically challenged athletes of KCT, was held on August 6th, Saturday at 4 p.m. hosted by KCT with around 2100 participants ranging from 6 year olds to 86 year olds, with their true spirit of sports and enthusiasm.
Streaming battle in the name of KICS ’16, an inter- engineering college sports meet waiting with 13th KCT Sports Fest for the Arutselvar Dr.N.Mahalingam Rolling Trophy is currently being held between August 12th- 15th encouraging healthy competition among the all budding sporty Engineers.
NATURE CLUB – KCT SANDHAI:
On August 11th KCT’s nature club’s first big step, “KCT Sandhai” where farm fresh veggies and fruits were being sold from the week on every Thursday. They will be having sandhai at our very own place which is near the basketball court.
THE LZR RACER:
The swimming contests at the 2008 Olympics at Beijing is a proof that technology can revolutionize the field of sports.The LZR Racer is all in one swim suit introduced just before the Olympics by british swim wear manufacturer Speedo, made from polyurethane, in addition to boosting the oxygen flow to the muscles also minimises the drag of the swimmer. It was a breakthrough in swim wears as it recorded numerous world records with 94% of gold medalists wearing the LZR proving a stunning success.
This led to the international swimming’s governing body to ban the use of full body suits in 2010 as various LZR suits were coming up in the markets to compete with the existing model. But while observers complained about “technology-doping”, swimming is far from the only sport in which technology has made a huge and controversial mark.
OMEGA UNDERWATER LAP COUNTERS:
Watchmaker Company Omega, the official timekeeper for all but three of the Olympic Games since 1932, has expanded its role beyond official data-handling.
Swimmers often have trouble keeping track of the number of laps they’ve completed. In order to eliminate this distraction, Omega has developed underwater lap counters to replace the human officials who previously displayed numbers at the pool’s edge.
Installed at the bottom of each lane, the counters update every time a swimmer touches a pad on the wall. The numbers will be visible to swimmers without requiring them to look up from the pool. They’re designed solely for in-the-moment use by competitors, rather than official timekeeping for the races.
Omega premiered the lap counters at the FINA World Swimming Championships in Doha, Qatar, in December 2014. These devices will be used in the 800-meter and 1500-meter freestyle swimming events in the Rio Olympics.
