Covid-19 Vaccination in India : Winning Over Coronavirus

This is off-topic but please excuse me I couldn't resist from sharing my thoughts on the same. Especially in the current scenario, this needs to be discussed and on priority basis!


India, the country from where I come from is reeling under the 2nd wave of Coronavirus. The consequences have been devastating with average daily positive cases crossing 3 lakhs and average death around 2500. This has become a daily phenomenon and it looks terribly horrific here. Moreover, the figures are likely to jump in the coming days with the peak expected in the mid of May between 15th and 20th. 


No one could have ever imagined such lethal return of Coronavirus in India. Things were in control till February end but March saw a rapid surge in the Covid infections surpassing all records especially in the places like Maharashtra and Delhi. Now a similar trend is visible in other Indian states making things severely out of control. Healthcare system is completely crippled with the lack of essential resources like hospital beds and Oxygen supply especially Oxygen supply whose shortage has resulted in unprecedented casualties.


Nothing to hide here, even I had caught Covid-19 in the mid April and fortunately, I have recovered well. Sadly, many others haven't been so lucky. Visuals of people gasping for breath and their relatives pleading desperately for help continues to haunt me. It is such a nightmare for all of us!! 


God only knows when will these all end!! 


Hopefully in a month or two but can we let people die like this till then!!


Obviously not!!


While the government is making sure that more and more Covid centers with required beds and oxygen facility are available for the sick, the other most important thing we must do is to get ourselves vaccinated as soon as possible!!

Vaccination drive is already open for the age group 45 and plus. But it has been little effective in combating the spread of the Coronavirus. Infections are still on the rise!!


Along with the vaccination of 45 and plus, there was also a need to vaccinate people in the lower age groups as people in these age groups are most likely to spread the infection at an alarming rate!!


The government of India has finally understood the gravity of the situation and has now opened up the vaccination drive for everyone in the age group 18 and 18+


As a concerned citizen of India, I believe this decision has come a bit late but anyway, better late than never. We all must welcome this decision and play our part by participating in this biggest vaccination drive in India.


Let us all get vaccinated and do our best to keep Coronavirus at bay. Obviously, Vaccination doesn't mean that we can never get infected from the virus but it surely will keep us protected from dangerous symptoms which can lead to fatalities. In other words, it can drastically reduce the mortality rate which is the need of the hour! 


To get started with the Vaccination process, here are the steps to follow:

  1. Visit the CoWIN website, and click on to the option to register/sign in yourself.
  2. Enter your mobile number and submit to get an OTP. After receiving the OTP, enter it to verify.
  3. Now you can register 4 people for vaccination. Now, provide all the details - name, gender, year of birth and Photo id proof, and then click on register.
  4. Once registered you will get an option to schedule your appointment. Next to the registered person’s name click on the option to schedule your appointment.
  5. Enter your pin code and it will show all the centres where vaccination is active in the pin code area entered.
  6. You can then select the centre, date and time of vaccination and click to confirm.

How to Register for CoWin Vaccination using Aarogya Setu App

  1. Launch the Aarogya Setu app and click on the CoWIN tab.
  2. Choose the vaccination registration, and enter your phone number, and submit it to get an OTP.
  3. Enter the OTP and verify. This will take you to the page where registration for vaccination can be done.
  4. You can then follow the same steps as mentioned above for registering on the CoWIN website.
I hope this information is useful for everyone (18,18+) in India looking for a relief from deadly Coronavirus.

Just Go and Get Vaccinated!!

And please do remember to:
  • Wear your masks
  • Wash/Sanitize your hands regularly
  • Keep social distance
And most importantly,

STAY AT HOME !!

Flexclip - A Service That Makes it Easy to Edit Videos Online

Have you ever made a video? 

YouTube, wedding, work, etc...

You may have the opportunity to make videos for various purposes even if you are not a professional editor. Speaking of video editing, you may think about After Effects, a confusing operation on a messy screen. Since it is software for the main business, it is a tool that is too difficult for beginners. If you've ever thought about editing a video, you probably have no experience. 

Here comes a piece of super good news for beginners who want to easily make videos even if they are not as good as a video editor. 

We will introduce FlexClip video maker that allows you to edit videos on the web easily!

What is Flexclip?

flexclip online video maker

Flexclip is a video editing software. It sounds complicated at the time of "video editing", but FlexClip is a tool that runs on the Chrome browser and does not need to be installed. 

What is Flexclip? 

A service that even beginners who are not familiar with video editing can easily create good-looking videos. FlexClip is one of the best tools to make great videos for YouTube, Facebook and your favorite social networks.

If you also want to launch yourself on YouTube and are looking for a program that allows you to make great-looking videos, FlexClip is definitely one of the best solutions I've found.

FlexClip Features

The following points are listed as the main features of Flexclip :
  1. Easy to operate. Easy to understand!
  2. You can try it for free and without registration!
  3. It works crisply even in the cloud type!
  4. Rich animation elements for online-based platforms and easy-to-use dynamic text, overlays, widgets, logos and more.
  5. Millions of royalty-free media resources. Super rich templates
  6. The number of video templates that can be used in various scenes is amazing! Moreover, the quality is high!
  7. A comprehensive and powerful video editing tool for cropping video and music, adjusting images, changing aspect ratios, or adding effects, narration, and watermarks
  8. Built-in screen / webcam recorder. It has a function to record the screen using a camera with the Free Screen Recorder. It works well with a web browser.
  9. Even if you don't have any knowledge of video production, you can make high-quality videos just by changing the characters on the template and additional materials.

Who Should Try FlexClip?

who should use flexclip

It doesn't have the fine-grained settings of Premiere Pro, but it has more than enough features. I think that it can be recommended for video beginners and YouTubers who do not do advanced editing. I think that the online base mentioned in No. 1 is the most important feature of Flexclip. It is also recommended for nomad workers and people using multiple PCs.
  • People who don't make elaborate videos
  • People who want to make short videos for social networks
  • People who want to make home clips
  • Fledgling YouTubers
  • People who want to make with templates easily
  • Those who are looking for free music material
  • People who want to edit videos on Chromebook
  • People who want to edit the same video on multiple PCs anytime, anywhere

FlexClip Plan

flexclip software plan

There are the above 4 plans. You can select the plan that suits your needs. Since it can be used on a monthly basis, the service can be terminated as soon as it is no longer needed. It is very convenient when you want to use it for a short time. The free version is really a trial version, and the basic plan is not enough.

If you want to pay, we definitely recommend a Plus plan or higher.

We recommend that you use the free plan as a "trial" to see what functions you can use. It is too restrictive because it has a FlexClip intro and the library (media source) that can be used is limited to one per video. A free plan is OK in the sense of trying out the functions, but at least a basic plan if you want to make a good call including uploading to YouTube or Vimeo.

However, these days, FHD (1980x1080pixel) size videos are commonplace for teaching materials, and we recommend the Plus Plan labeled "Popular" for this purpose. I highly recommend the business plan that I also use for those who want to make videos hard, use long time ones (within 30 minutes MAX) and want to maximize the quality. In addition, it is a monthly/annual subscription contract,and I think that you may have a preference for this, but it can be said that the advantage of the subscription is that you can always use the latest features and added media sources abundantly.

Conclusion

That's all about FlexClip. If you have the following concerns, "I want to be a YouTuber! But I don't really understand video editing!" "Wedding movies are expensive, so I want to make my own!" You can use it for small video production at work, a movie for a wedding, a YouTube clip, etc. Knowledge and skill are required to make videos with After Effects. With FlexClip, even beginners can make good videos with zero experience. In a word, Flexclip makes it easy for beginners to make videos. Please give it a try. It should be surprisingly useful.
