Blue Whale

Hey guys ! Today we are gonna talk about the popular and deadly game : BLUE WHALE. This game has now been removed from Google and Apple's server but still is the talk of the town. Many of us know what this game is about but do we all know what happens in the game.



CREATION

First of all let us begin with its creation. The game was originally created in Russia in 2013 with "F57", one of the names of the so-called "death group" of the VKontakte social network. A psychology student Philipp Budeiken who was suspended from his University claims to be the Mastermind behind this game. After being asked the reason behind creating this game he said he wanted to clean the 'biological waste'. By the term he means to destroy all the humans who are of no use to the society. 

THE CHALLENGE

The Blue Whale game is also popularly known as the blue whale challenge and is one of the most deadliest challenge. The game is based on different tasks. Each player is termed as a challenger and is provided with one administrator. The game goes on for a duration of 50 days during which the challenger has to complete 50 different tasks. The photographic proof of all the tasks is sent to the administrator and then only the game moves forward. 


First few tasks are relatively easier than the last ones. After few days if the challenger wants to quit the game he cannot. The administrator threatens the challenger that if he quits now then the administrator will harm him/her or their family. The final task of the challenge is committing a suicide and that is the reason why it is the deadliest challenge till date. 

TASKS

The tasks of this challenge makes it a unique challenge. All the fifty tasks are to be completed at a particular time given by the administrator. The first task is to wake up at 4:20 AM which is believed to be biblical reference to the Leviticus 4 20 Laws for the Sin Offerings. Most of the tasks include waking up at 4:20 AM. The second task is to tell your best friend that you hate them. The third task is marked by watching a scary film at  midnight and mainly 'The Ring' . 

Task 4 is actually the main entrance in the whale world. The challenger is asked to announce his status of being a whale to the world by uploading a status as ' #IAMAWHALE ' on all the social platforms. The sudden moving out of all the social circles is because of the tasks like watching scary movies all day and listening to audio files that are sent to the challenger by the administrator. According to the reports these audio files contain breathing sounds and that also upto 3 minutes. 

Till now it was only a game of destroying your mind but after this task it becomes a game of self harming. The challenger is asked to carve words like 'YES' or 'F40' on his arm to prove that he is still in the game. Then in some tasks they are asked to poke needles in their arms or safety pins in their cheeks. As I described some try to back out at this stage but cannot. Now the game slowly moves towards the idea of committing a suicide. Few tasks involve sitting at the terrace with your legs dancing in the air or going near the railway tracks at 4:20 AM. Not all tasks are known to us because some are kept confidential in a different language.


From Day 30 to 49 the tasks are based to completely separate the challenger from the outer world. The tasks involve watching scary movies all day or listening to audio files repeatedly. The second last task is to meet a fellow Whale who will give them a time and date for suicide. The 50th task starts buy uploading a social status saying 'END' with a photo of the challenger preparing to suicide. Most of the teens who had committed suicide were having a large blue whale carved in their hands. 





STATISTICS

According to the reports the first suicide was in 2015 in Russia. Approximately there have been 150 deaths in Russia because of this challenge. This game has caused deaths in other countries also like : US , Brazil , Argentina , Italy , China , Portugal , India and many more. In India the first case was reported on July 30 and from then many cases have been reported. The age group mainly includes the students from 7th grade to 12th grade. 


Thanks to the cyber police that we are all safe from this game and thanks to all my awesome readers who read this article and spared their valuable time for me. If you want to hear more from High School Pedia subscribe to our newsletter and also like our Facebook page.

Anode Ray Experiment

→Anode ray experiment was conducted by E Goldstein. →These rays are also known as canal rays. →This experiment helped in the discovery of the proton. Apparatus Used A discharge tube  was taken in which there were 2 electrodes i.e. Anode(+ve) and the cathode (-ve). The tube was filled with an inert gas. A perforated or porous cathode was used. A layer of zinc sulphide was placed at the back of the cathode. There was a vacuum pump in the tube. High voltage (5000v-10000v) was allowed to flow through the system. It was observed that when the gas was at 1atm(atmospheric pressure ) no change was seen in the tube.  When the   pressure   was decreased inside the tube, a glow could be seen at the back side of the cathode.

Isotopes, Isobars and Isotones

Isotopes These are elements which have the same atomic number but different atomic mass . They have the same atomic number because the number of protons that are inside their nuclei remains the same. But, they have different atomic mass because the number of neutrons that are also inside their nuclei is different. As the number of protons inside nuclei remains same, therefore the overall charge of the elements also remains same as in isotopes: no of protons = no of electrons . Hence, as isotopes overall charge remains neutral, therefore their chemical properties will also remain identical.   Therefore, Isotopes are chemically same but physically different.

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment

Rutherford Alpha Ray Scattering Experiment Hey, Guys, most of you might have heard about the alpha ray scattering experiment and if you want to know in detail about Rutherford's model and the experiment he conducted, this is the right place for you... But first: Things You Must Know Some basic information that will help you understand rutherford experiment properly: Proton is a sub-atomic particle which is positively charged and has a mass of 1u. Alpha particles are helium atom with a charge of +2 as they have lost 2 electrons. Alpha particles have an atomic mass  of 4u. Gold is highly malleable and can be beaten into very thin sheets. Experiment Rutherford conducted his experiment in the following way: Rutherford took a very thin gold foil and bombarded it with high energy alpha particles. He placed a layer of zinc sulphide on the walls where the experiment was taking place because when alpha particles strike zinc sulphide layer, it results i

Cathode Ray Experiment

This experiment was conducted by J.J. Thomson (Sir Joseph John Thomson) in the year 1897. This experiment proved that atom is made up of fundamental particles which are much smaller than the smallest atom 'hydrogen' This experiment helped to discover electron. According to J.J. Thomson, the cathode rays consisted of very light, small and negatively charged particles. He named the particles "corpuscles" which were later known as electrons

The Inverse & Reciprocal TRIGONOMETRIC Functions

So, this is my second post on trigonometry. In this post we're gonna cover the reciprocal and the inverse Trigonometric functions. If you haven't seen my first post you should definitely view it as it covers the basics of Trigonometry The Reciprocal Trigonometric Functions The reciprocal Trigonometric function of Sine is Cosecant, of Cosine is Secant & for Tangent it is Cotangent. Cosecant (Csc θ = 1/Sin θ) or (Hypotenuse/Opposite) Secant (Sec θ = 1/Cos θ) or (Hypotenuse/Adjacent) Cotangent (Cot θ = 1/Tan θ) or (Adjacent/Opposite) We can also represent Tan θ in another way. As Tan θ = opposite/adjacent  & Sin θ = opposite/hypotenuse  & Cos θ = adjacent/hypotenuse ∴ Tan θ = Sin θ/Cos θ (The hypotenuses cancel out) As Cot θ = 1/Tan θ  So, we can also represent Cot θ as Cos θ/Sin θ.

Paid Apps For Free ??

Everyone wants to play a game like GTA on iPad, it is easy on a computer to download such games but difficult on smart devices like iPad, tablet,  or smartphones. We can buy them but not everyone can buy games. But no worries guys there is a solution to this problem where one can have fun of playing games without spending their precious money .(underlined apps have downloading links  given at the end) iOS There many apps through which you can download these paid games for free. Also, there are many sites for the same. One of the most helpful apps is a Chinese app.It is called haimawan. If on a ios device, then you just have to click install which will redirect to settings  add a profile  and boom enjoy it as you wish . but it does not always work, it might work for few days and then the verification problem which may not cure. One more app is tutu which is a fantastic app and always work (99.9% sure .. nothing is perfect). X cross was the perfect app but is closed now an

Plasma State

Plasma State Introduction An atom consists of 3 sub-fundamental particles:                   Electron - Present in the extra-nuclear part                   Protons - Present in the nuclear part                   Neutrons- Present in the nuclear part An Atom is electrically neutral this means the  number of electrons = number of protons. Any Atom that carries charge is known as an  ion. Plasma State →Plasma State is the 4th state of matter . →It is defined as a colletion or pool of highy charged or excited of gasses. →As the atoms of gas loose electrons, they become highly excited. →It can be also defined as a state of gas in which gases loose there electrons. →This state only exists at very high temerature. →The kinetic energy of the particles of the gas increases, due to which particles or atoms collide with each other with force. Examples Lightning... Ya guys ever wondered how the particles of air conduct electricity d
