Well … I am not talking about my office’s poster, rather these are the poster that I hung earlier in this week on my office room wall. My wall looked very much empty. So empty that I felt somewhat uneasy. Feeling uneasy about a room is not a good thing, specially if the room is your office room, where you spend almost your whole daytime. To diminish the unease and (of course) to beautify my room, I decided to decorate it with some posters.
Here is the highlights of the opening ceremony of ICC cricket World Cup 2011, that was held yesterday at Bongobondhu Stadium, Dhaka. I myself missed the live broadcast, so I’d to depend on the online videos of the ceremony.
Overall the whole ceremony was a tremendous success. I really could not remember when was the last time World Cup Cricket got such an warm welcome! The fascinating performances of the various artists from the different countries, the spectacular entrance of 14 captains riding rickshaws, the laser-cricket-play – all are marvelous. Well… to be frankly… the speeches from the political leaders seemed bit irritating to me, but that is the most negligible part… actually nothing comparing to the main events of the ceremony!
It is the most spectacular and fascinating short-video on Bangladesh I’ve ever seen. Within almost 3 minutes it covers almost the whole Bangladesh! It’s amazing. After watching the video (over and over) I realized (again) how beautiful my country is! Thanks to Gazi Shuvro for creating such a stunning video on Bangladesh. This video is actually created for Tourism Board of Bangladesh to promote tourism in Bangladesh. Enjoy the video.

A year after opening Coppin State University’s first nano technology research center, a Bangladeshi scientist and his research team are making history for simulating the most efficient solar energy cells in the world. Dr. Jamal Uddin, a Bangladeshi scientist, who is also a professor at Coppin State University, have modeled nearly four percent more efficient solar cells than Spectrolab, with his five undergraduate student researchers. Before his innovation, Spectrolab held the title for most cells simulated since 2006.
Coppin’s research includes creating cells that act as rechargeable batteries for night vision goggles used by soldiers at war. As of today, Coppin’s group has simulated 43.4 percent of solar cells for reusable energy. Dr. Uddin mentioned that his team utilized the metaphysics software COMSOL and the online software program PC1D to break the world record. He also said,
It is really fantastic and encouraging for our university to achieve such exciting results. It was a surprising discovery and now we are excited to proceed with further research in nanotechnology
Dr. Jamal Uddin and five additional student researchers will continue nanotech simulation with the hope of manipulating 50 percent of solar cells by December 2010. The university’s one-year-old Nanotechnology Research Center is a product of the $89,000 Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) grant the school received July 2009. On Tuesday, October 26, 2010, the Coppin research team will present their findings to renowned nanotech scientists, scholars and visitors in the army research lab at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
The above information is taken from the press release of Coppin State University.

And they did it! The Tigers did it. They completed a clean sweep over the Kiwis! They seal the deal with a 4-0 score and won the final day final one-day international! Hats off to you the Tigers!!
Rubel Hossain grabbed four wickets as Bangladesh completed a sweep with a thrilling three-run victory over New Zealand in the fifth and final one-day international on Sunday. The fast bowler finished with 4-25 off 9.3 sharp overs as New Zealand, chasing a 175-run target, were bowled out for 171 in the last over. Bravo Rubel! Bravo!
This is the first sweep ever for Bangladesh against any giant team. Bangladesh also secures the 8th place in the ICC rankings table along side the West Indies, achieving a total rating of 67. And we hope that, this is just the beginning… beginning of a new era of Bangladesh cricket team!!
Go ahead Tigers! Roar aloud! Show the world your new identity – the identity of a winner!
