Project Problems

Once I was desperately searching for "Problems". I was asking people

Have you ever faced a problem and wondered "Why nobody has found a solution for this yet?" or felt "Hey! This is irritating yaar..... It would be better if we have a better solution for this" ?

and was begging them to share it with me so that I can try to solve it using micro-computers. I also gave them an example problem like below

While riding my bike I decided to make a lane change. I looked at my side mirror to check vehicles on the lane I'm going to join. My side mirror gave me a "clear" flag. So I turned my corresponding turn light on and started moving towards that lane. Suddenly I was horrified by the horn of a car that was very close to me and I restricted myself from moving towards that lane further. I was wondering "How that car came into picture all of a sudden?" "Could it have come from a long distance very fast after I checked my side mirror?" or "Did I miss it while checking the side mirror?" "What would have happened if I didn't use my turn light or made a turn suddenly?"

Later I found that, that car was on my "Blind Spot" (the region which is not visible to our eyes and not through our side mirrors - usually 15-20 degrees on immediate back of the rider). Why nobody has not found a solution to this problem yet? Isn't it a matter of life and death?

I tried to reach people using different channels - I wrote mail to almost everyone in my contact list; posted the same in many forums and social networking sites. There were few responses but none had suggested any problem. Few asked "why are you searching for problems?" others mocked saying "My Mother-in-Law is my problem. Can you do something for that with your micro-controllers?"

Some suggested tools that gives me what's trending on Google, Twitter, etc. But that's is also not useful to get to know about unsolved problems people have.

When I was later pondering over how to get to know real world problems people face, I felt it would be better if there is a platform where people can share problems that they face. And my "Project - Problems" is exactly for this cause. Students, researchers & entrepreneurs can then try to solve problems which deserve a better solution.

This vision is just in my mind and have not been put into action yet. I'm planning to run this as a non-profitable, crowd-sourced project. If you are interested in this cause, you are most welcome to join hands with me to make this world a better place!

A gun charge against NFL linebacker Khaseem Greene has been dropped because the man who said he gave him a weapon admitted he lied, the player's attorney said.

Greene, Walter Payton Jerseyswho had the charges against him dismissed by a judge on July 17 after a request from prosecutors, said the legal trouble has been "probably the toughest time of my life" and has been "very hard emotionally and mentally."

"People started looking at me differently and accusing me of being this thug, this monster, Alshon Jeffery Jerseysand all of it was false," he said by phone.

Greene's attorney, Jordan Howard JerseysJoshua McMahon, provided to NJ.com an audio recording of the other man telling detectives he lied about Greene's involvement in a shooting outside a nightclub in Elizabeth last December.

The other man's admission came the day he told detectives Greene, who's from Elizabeth, was involved, but it wasn't included in a criminal complaint that alleged Greene was seen on camera handing him a gun, McMahon said.

The man, Jason Sanders, is accused of firing into a crowd and remains jailed on aggravated assault and weapons offenses. He has not entered a plea. He's represented by a public defender whose office policy is to not comment to the media.

Greene declined to comment on specifics of the case on the advice of his attorney pending a federal civil rights lawsuit he intends to file. Kevin White JerseysHis attorney said he has filed a tort claim notice warning of the lawsuit.

The prosecutor's office said it couldn't comment on specifics of the case while the case against Sanders is pending. Danny Trevathan JerseysElizabeth's mayor and the police department declined to comment.

McMahon said the audio recording proves prosecutors moved forward with charges even though Sanders admitted he lied.

"The prosecutor's office and police department worked in concert to repeatedly perpetrate at least two lies to the judge who they sought the initial arrest warrant from and the grand jurors who returned the indictment," Kyle Long JerseysMcMahon told NJ.com.
