Heart Attacks And Drinking Warm Water:

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about Heart Attack's . The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating. For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is very Harmful to have Cold Drink/Water during a meal. Because, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer . It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

French fries and Burgers
are the biggest enemy of heart health. A coke after that gives more power to this demon. Avoid them for
your Heart's & Health.


Drink one glass of warm water just when you are about to go to bed to avoid clotting of the blood at night to avoid heart attacks or strokes.

A Virtual assistant for Raspberrry Pi

It is made following the nice book on the subject by Tanay Pant - Building a Virtual Assistant for Raspberry Pi (APress)
This is similar though much simplified version of products like Google Home or Amazon Echo.
The idea is to use the Raspberry Pi based Virtual Assistant as one of the interfaces for Amigo chatbot project.
Ria uses Google STT (Speech to text) API and espeak on Linux (or say on OSX) for TTS (Text to speech).
Currently supported skills/features:
  1. Play music from configured path on local disk
  2. Read news headlines scrapping news from news.google.com
  3. Take notes and store in local sqllite DB
  4. Tell time
  5. Tell local weather of configured city
  6. Post tweets on twitter
  7. Look up wikipedia and read a short description for any term, person or place (anything on wikipedia).
