What should I do for preparing for IAS from 1st year of graduation?
Firstly all the best for achieving your goal!!!! As you are a graduation first year student you have sufficient time for preparation . So I will suggest you some points to follow for cracking this hard nut. If you feelfortable with the strategy follow the given points diligently- Start firstly by going through the UPSC syllabus thoroughly. Then watch some toppers interview and take a squeeze of their strategies which you feel will be beneficial for you. After that analyse previous year papers of atleast five years to know what UPSC wants from the aspirants. Now you are ready for studying the UPSC course. Start building your strong foundation by studying and making notes of NCERTs. Locate each and every place on map such that you will feel familiar with all the places at the time of your exam. As map plays an important role in revising the facts . Also start reading a standard newspaper like The Hindu or The Indian Express. After that start reading standard books like italic for polity GC Leong italic for geography Ramesh Singh italic for economy etc. Start answer writing practice in your graduation third year. Also start reading monthly current affairs magazine like Chronicle italic from starting of graduation third year. Also join prelims and mains test series in your final year. Dobined preparation for prelims and mains exam . Develop a good hobby and be consistent through your whole journey for attaining success. Do your preparation along with graduation but Never forget that college life cannot be returned again. So also enjoy the moment in which you are living now.

What is the significance of the Triple-Slit experiment of Quantum Mechanics by Dr. Urbasi Sinha, post-doctoral student?
Unfortunately the other responses miss the point of the question. Some years ago (first appearing in print in 1994 I think) Rafael Sorkin (emeritus at Syracuse University now at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics) noticed that quantum mechanics can be regarded as the second rung of a hierarchy of quantum measure theories. The lowest rung classical theories obey the Kolmogorov sum rule for additivity of probabilities for mutually exclusive oues. Quantum mechanics famously violates this sum rule because of quantum interference. What Sorkin noticed was that quantum theory nonetheless obeys a higher-order sum rule involving sums of probabilities of three mutually exclusive alternatives. This led him to define a hierarchy of possible generalizations of quantum mechanics according to whether or not they obey one of a hierarchy of such sum rules. These may be tested experimentally with multiple-slit interference experiments. I would have to guess (since the questioner mentions Sinha who worked with Sorkin on the first of such experiments of which I am aware) it is experimental tests of such generalizations of quantum mechanics to which the questioner refers. Thus to answer the question a bit less flippantly the significance of such experiments is that they are tests of the fundamental validity of quantum mechanics within a well-defined framework for understanding the properties of possible generalizations of it not unlike Bell inequality tests (which quantum mechanics violates) or tests of the Tsirelson bound (which quantum mechanics obeys.) Observing a violation of quantum mechanics in one of these experiments would point to new physics to be explored! (To my knowledge none of these experiments has reported any such violation with any confidence however.)
What can I learn in 10 minutes that will be useful for the rest of my life?
Importance of Mathematics and variable change. I would like to share a scene from movie 21 (28) which concludes the importance of Statistics and variable change (Mathematics) in place of emotions while taking a decision. Without getting into the depth of movie lets try to grasp something which would make our decision making process more efficient. Scene A professor asks a question from student (Ben). italic Professor Suppose you are on a game show in which you have 3 door infront of you. The game host ask you to pick a door inside which there is a brand new car. Which door will you choose? Ben reply I would choose the first one. Professor Ok. Ben choosed door number 1. Now the game host opens door number 3 which is empty. Now you have a choice to change your choice of picking door once again. What would you like to do? Whether you stick to your decision or change? Ben reply I would switch my choice to door number 2. Professor How do you know he is not playing with your mind. Why would you switch the door! The game host knows where the car is. He can use reverse phycology on you. Ben reply I doesn't matter. My answer is based on statistics and variable change. Professor Please elaborate! Ben reply Initially when I was given a choice to choose door among 3 my chances of winning was 33.3%. After he opened the third door (which was empty) and offer me choice its 66.7% if I choose to switch. So yes! I would choose door number 2 and thankyou was that extra 33.3%. Professor Exactly! If you are confused to choose a decision always go for statistics and variable change. Most people don't switch their choice in fear emotions paranoia but Ben set aside his emoticon and let simple Mathematics to win a brand new car. horizontal-rule Actually we can apply this statistics and variable change concept in our daliy life; taking right decision in Interviews by setting aside our emotions and focus on simple Mathematics to take the right decision. Hope this might help! Pic source Screenshot from youtube. italic Edit Many are confused inment section so lets try to understand it in more simple way. By choosing a door you create two groups group A (your door) group B (the other door). The probability of car being in A is 33.3% (1) and probability of car being in B is 66.7% (2). This is for obvious reasons that host will open the wrong door on first place to make you decide (decision making). ( Initially when you choosed the door your probability of winning was 33.3%(1) andbined probability of other two door was 66.7% (1333.3%). italic Now after revealing third door which is empty you are down to two doors but they are still the same group A and B with same probability. When the host shows the door and it is empty that door probability shifts to the 2nd door (as initially they were havingbined probability) which is 66.7% (2). italic You should then pick group B as it has 66.7% (2) probability of hiding car. Lets take another example Suppose you are made to choose Ace of Spade from a deck of card. You randomly choosed one card. Your probability for winning bes (1). Now the host reveals each and every card and at last left with just one card which he places on table at side of your card. As the host knowingly eliminated the wrong card therefore the last card must have a probability of (51) of winning. Therefore you have a very high probability of winning in case you switch to his card. Hope this will help!
