Motivational Quotes Calendar for 2018



Few years back, we had released a web application for allowing anyone to generate Motivational Quotes Calendar.
You can access this app here.

You can generate the printable calendar by including your company name or website. You can choose either U.S holidays or Indian holidays while generating the calendar.

We have updated the holidays list of this Calendar generator for the year 2018.

So, now you can start creating the calendar 2018 from http://www.thequotes.net/quotes/calendar/calendar.php

If you want to read the motivational quotes on your android phone, install our quotes app freely.

Improved Push Notification of our Motivational Quotes App



Few weeks back I had released our Motivational Quotes app at Google Play Store.
Lot of people are installing this App, and it is getting some positive comments. And, it is earning me money from AdMob ads. So, I had spent significant time in improving this app, and for adding more motivational Quotes. Today I uploaded the latest version to the Google play store. If you like Motivational Quotes, you can freely download it from Google Play Store by visiting this link.

 This new update is mainly for improving the Push notification delivery/display.
I am daily sending a Motivational Quote as Android Push Notification from the Firebase console.
Previously, tapping the notification/quotes on the notification system tray used to open the main activity of our app. I thought it will be better to open a separate activity for showing the notification/Quotes.



Since firebase console is not having option to include "click_action", everyone in various forum discussions was saying that it is not possible to use firebase console to send push notification that can be opened in specific activity instead of main activity. It seemed like I had to write a php code to send the notification from our own server instead of using firebase console. But I preferred to stick with firebase console as it is having many desired features like opening rate stats, and showing the list of all the already sent messages.
So, I did further search to find a way to do it using firebase console itself. And, finally I came to know about a workaround to implement it.
I had to add the below code in main activity to open the notification activity when tapping the push notification.

//for starting QOD notification activityIntent intent=getIntent();
if (intent.hasExtra("run_activity")) {
    Intent resultIntent = new Intent(getApplicationContext(), NotificationOpenActivity.class);
    String qod_message="Quote of the Day"; //default value    if (intent.hasExtra("message")) {
        qod_message=intent.getStringExtra("message");
    }
    resultIntent.putExtra("message",qod_message);
    startActivity(resultIntent);
}

And,  while sending Quotes from the firebase console, I had to send custom data also to make it work correctly.

Since, it is working as expected, I am planning to continue this approach instead of implementing app server.
As the Daily Notification Quotes is now opening in separate activity, I am planning to use the space in that screen effectively to provide more useful information. Right now I have added Do it any way poem, 45 Life lessons and 40 secrets for happy life. I beleive this approach will encourage the users to open the notification as the additional content will be available only when opening the app from the notification. I am planning to add more useful content in future if this approach is going to get positive reviews.

Let me (rajamanickam.a@gmail.com) know if you find any issue in using our Quotes app, and especially when receiving daily quotes notification. If you have already installed it, you need to update to this new version to see the new changes.

If you like this app, refer this app to your friends and add your review comments at Google Play Store.

At Google Play store, we can find lot of other good motivational quotes apps. Some will be having attractive designs, and some other apps will be having huge number of quotes. Still our Quotes App is having its own unique advantages. I am keeping it very simple so that anyone can use it without worrying about memory, battery and data usage. It will work offline without internet connection. Please let me know your suggestions to improve

About the Revolutionary Gene-Editing Technology e.g CRISPR / CAS9


 In this post I would like to write about the Gene Editing Tools, especially about CRISPR / CAS 9.

 Gene-Editing is not new, it is available for many years. But recent developments such as invention of CRISPR  are making huge differences  by simplifying the Gene-editing process. Previously Gene-Editing was a very complex and tedious process that needs to be done by experts. But CRISPR which is known as "Molecular Scissors" made this task comparatively simple.

These days, we used to hear about  lot of surprising news about CRISPR gene-editing. For example, designer babies, stopping the ageing, Cancer cure, curing blindness, etc.
Some of them may be true, and some of them are not true. We will come to know about which of them are true in near future.

Anyway, there is no question about the huge impact of CRISPR or any other Gene-editing tool to the humanity in coming days.

The advent of CRISPR/Cas9 has revolutionized the Genome Editing Industry. This technique is allowing a previously unattainable level of genomic targeting with greater efficiency and simplicity. Due to this ability, the share of CRISPR/Cas9 is continuously increasing in the Genome Editing Industry.

According to the  "Global CRISPR/Cas9 Market Outlook 2022" report provided by  Research and Markets, it is anticipated that the global CRISPR/Cas9 market will cross US $1.5 Billion by 2022.

The growth of the market is likely to be driven by expanding drug discovery applications and increasing research related activities for exploring CRISPR/Cas9 therapeutic applications.

The major application areas of CRISPR/Cas9 include cell line engineering, genetic engineering, CRISPR plasmid development, human stem cells, gene library development and producing GM organisms or crops. Cell Line Engineering is the largest area of application of CRISPR/Cas9, followed by Genetic Engineering. The genetic engineering market employing CRISPR/Cas9 is expected to witness the highest growth in 2016-2022. This growth is likely to be driven by reduction of evolutionary time in comparison to previous gene editing tools, such as Zinc Finger Nucleases (ZFNs) and Transcription Activator-Like Effector Nucleases (TALENs).

Watch the below video to know about CRISPR.




Already scientists have taken a key step toward a cure for sickle cell disease, using CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to fix the mutated gene responsible for the disease in stem cells from the blood of affected patients.

On 28 October, a team in China delivered the modified cells into a patient with aggressive lung cancer as part of a clinical trial at the West China Hospital.

MIT researchers have now added an extra layer of control over when and where this gene editing occurs, by making the system responsive to light.

With that system, gene editing takes place only when researchers shine ultraviolet light on the target cells. This kind of control could help scientists study in greater detail the timing of cellular and genetic events that influence embryonic development or disease progression. Eventually, it could also offer a more targeted way to turn off cancer-causing genes in tumor cells.

Using the CRISPR Gene Editing system, the MIT biological engineers have devised a way to record complex histories in the DNA of human cells, allowing them to retrieve “memories” of past events, such as inflammation, by sequencing the DNA.

This analog memory storage system — the first that can record the duration and/or intensity of events in human cells — could also help scientists study how cells differentiate into various tissues during embryonic development, how cells experience environmental conditions,  and how they undergo genetic changes that lead to disease.

And, Salk Institute scientists were able to partially restore visual responses in blind rodents. This will open new avenues for basic research and a variety of treatments, such as for retinal, heart and neurological diseases.

Lot of people are investing heavily in CRISPR related companies. Anyway, still patent war is going on between various research groups.  So,  it is not  clear about the role of CRISPR in the healthcare industry.
Do you know any interesting or useful details about CRISPR or any other Gene-editing Tool? You can share the details through the comments.

QualityPointTech shop at SpreadShirt. Get T-Shirts and other Merchandise with various Designs and Quotes



As specified in my previous posts, I am focusing more on developing our YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/qualitypointtech
I am spending lot of time and effort for regularly adding useful & interesting Videos and latest technology news videos.

Our channel is getting many new subscribers daily, and view count is getting increased steadily. Right now I am earning money by showing Google Adsense ads in the youtube channel as I explained in this video.

But earnings from Google adsense is low comparing with the affiliate earnings reported by many other similar youtube channel owners.
Few years back, I thought about participating in affiliate marketing to earn additional money from our websites and youtube traffic. I explored few affiliate programs.  But that time I didn't choose to focus on affiliate programs, as I thought it will take lot of efforts to earn any significant money.
But now I decided to opt the affiliate program as youtube it self encouraging that activity.
After exploring various affiliate programs I decided to choose Spreadshirt which is officially supported by Google/Youtube.

I created a shop at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/QualityPointTech/ and regularly adding many T-Shirts and other products with Quotes and other designs.

https://shop.spreadshirt.com/QualityPointTech/


It seems spreadshirt will pay 20% as affiliate commission and apart from affiliate commission it will pay volume commission for selling more products in specified time. And, it allows us to set our own price for our designs.
So, I hope it will be useful for earning some additional money apart from earning from Google Adsense. While I am exploring options to earn from Spreadshirt shop, at the same time I am very keen on keeping the shop really useful for the customers. I take every possible step to keep the price minimum. For example, I am using designs from free open art designs instead of using the marketplace designs which will increase the price further.


And, spreadshirt is offering some discounts at certain time periods. For example, while writing this post it is offering 15% off for any order.

You can check the offer details at header banner at https://shop.spreadshirt.com/QualityPointTech/

Share your suggestions to improve our shop further.
