(I Fixed It!) Gsuite Email Receiving But Not Sending – Or Going to SPAM

This article is for you if you have a Gsuite email address (Gmail backend, your domain frontend) and you’re able to receive emails, but can’t send them. This article is also applicable for those who can send but their emails go to spam.

These following steps will not only get you to restart sending emails but also prevent your legitimate emails from going into spam in client accounts.

Congratulations (NOT) – Your IP has been labeled as a SPAM generating IP by Google (and possibly by other services too). That’s okay, we’ll fix it.

Yes, even if it’s a Google Apps/ Google Domains/ G Suite / Google hosted mail / Gmail on your own Domain name IP. This can happen for 3 reasons:

  1. You’re actually a spammer – Hi, how are you?
  2. A malicious script is using that IP to send spam mail.
  3. Your email is being used as the “sender” of various auto-generated spam emails.

In this article I’ll tell you in the most to-the-point way to tell Google you are not spamming and start sending emails.

The Error Messages (for which this article is appropriate):

Message not delivered
There was a problem delivering your message to an-email-address@gmail.com. See the technical details below or try resending in a few minutes.

Followed by an error message that says ” The response was:

421 4.7.28 [209.85.220.65 15] Our system has detected an unusual rate of unsolicited mail originating from your IP address. To protect our users from spam, mail sent from your IP address has been temporarily rate limited. Please visit https://support.google.com/mail/?p=UnsolicitedRateLimitError to review our Bulk Email Senders Guidelines. k8sor25509159pgm.33 – gsmtp ”

The Solution

Then After 2 F**king Hours of Forum Scouting, I Have a 2 Step Solution for You.

You will need the following to fix this:

  1. Access to our domain’s hosting panel to change the DNS settings. You literally have to just add 2 TXT entries, nothing else.
  2. Access to your GSuite Admin Panel at Google.com/a/your-domain-name.extension

If you don’t have either of these as of this moment, pause, get those details and come back to this (you might want to bookmark this).

If You Have Credentials for Your Hosting and Gsuite, Read on:

  1. Go to https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/checkmx/
  2. Enter your Gsuite domain name
  3. See the list of errors. Ignore the rest (if email was working fine earlier) and just fix the following error: “DKIM is not set up”. To fix this, you will need to login to your Gsuite.
  4. Once logged into Gsuite, go to Apps -> Gsuite -> Settings for Gmail -> Authenticate Email . There, generate new record, enter that as a TXT field in your domain’s DNS, wait for it to propagate, then click on “Start Authentication” on that page.
    Be patient with the DNS records propagation. Use a tool like https://www.whatsmydns.net/#TXT/ to check when the TXT record has propagated. Once you see that the DNS has propagated, log out of your Gsuite account, log back in and click “start authentication”. Then you should see something like:
  5. Done! You’re good to go.

If this didn’t work for you, comment below where you’re stuck and let’s try to get this sorted for you.

10 Reasons Why France and ISIS Are Fighting

France has faced tragedy before and it struck again yesterday on the 13th of November 2015. There are various reasons why the Islamic State is targeting France. The fight has caused a lot of destruction and has shocked the world over and over again. Here are the top 10 reasons why France is the primary target of Islamic terrorists.

  1. France joined the US in attacking Syria in September 2015.

    France has been a lead taker and probably the most active country in tackling Islamic terrorism in Syria.

  2. France has been a leading force opposing Islamic terrorist activity around the world.

    Other places where France has actively attacked jihadis are Mali (since 2013), Libya and Iraq. In the attack yesterday, one of the attackers shouted “This is for Syria” before hurling bullets and grenades on unarmed civilians.

  3. France has a huge Islamic/Muslim community in Europe which makes it easier for IS to find recruits.

    Various French army men have defected to the Islamic State even ones from the First Marine Infantry Parachute regiment which is known worldwide for the finest commando training.
    Up to ten former French soldiers  have defected to Islamic State    Telegraph

  4. There’s a huge inflow of arms into France from other European countries.

  5. The French have killed various top al-Queda commanders which has made them enemies throughout the Islamic world.

    Over 9000 French troupes are placed around the world to curtail Islamic Jihadi terrorist activities. There is french presence in various parts of Africa and in Iraq. The French have paid the price with the terrorists kidnapping dozens of French nationals and killing many including the 2013 killing of Frenchman Philippe Verdon.

  6. France is further escalating the war on Islamic Terrorists

    Last week France made the announcement to deploy an aircraft carrier in the Gulf sea to further it’s fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

  7. Inside France, the gap between the Islamic and Christian community has grown over the years.

    France took the lead in banning of the burqas and French prisons are known for radicalising innocent Muslim men into hardened jehadis.

  8. Over 65% of inmates inside French jails are Muslims.

    There is belief in the Islamic community in France that they’re targeted against and prisons act as madarasas or schools to convert these young Muslim men into hardened fundamentalists.
    In France Prisons Filled With Muslims

    What is going wrong in France s prisons Telegraph

  9. French neighbour Belgium is an arms haven

    In the previous Charlie Hebdo attack, all weapons were sourced from Belgium. The unprotected borders don’t help and anyone can easily drive into France from Belgium.

  10. Proximity to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

    France, out of France, UK and USA is the closest to the affected African and Middle East areas making it an obvious target.

Any thoughts – comment below. Messages with hatred will be removed.

Url Profiler – Problem Connecting To Data Source

If you use the Url Profiler and have had the application running for sometime, there’s a chance that you’ll see all 0s in your url_profile_results xlsx file on executing the Majestic report that comes free with the Urlprofiler. In the xlsx file generated, the 8th column will say “Problem connecting to data source” (see image).

Problem connecting to data source

At that point you will immediately hop on to Google and search this text. 😉

Solution: 

Restart the Url Profiler and don’t let it wait too long before executing your query. I have seen this happening with and without the Majestic API, so you thinking “Maybe the free Majestic version is not working and maybe I should buy a subscription” is not true. The only major difference between the free and paid Majestic data fetching on the UrlProfiler is the speed – the speed is lightening fast with the API.

You will probably have a hard time locating the API key on Majestic – so let me tell you that you do have access to the API on the Silver plan also (you don’t need the Platinum plan) and it can be obtained here. Good luck.

making money online is no magic

Why read this article? Who Am I?

I’m Arjun, have run 800+ websites in parallel, made money from those using every possible strategy there is. I started in 2004 and it took me 3 years of learning to start making money online in 2007 and I’ve never looked back since. Of all these ventures, the most money I’ve made is in projects that don’t really need any technical know-how, don’t require any upfront investment and don’t require lying or cheating or conning anyone. These kind of online businesses are not only the most fun to run but also are the longest lasting. There are hundreds of people out there that will teach you a step-by-step method of making money. Yes they do work, but they come with an expiry date – think – if there’s a short cut technique for making money, sooner or later it will be exposed to way too many people for it to be effective anymore. Don’t go for that or you’ll never have a reliable online business ever.

In this Blog post, I will explain a way of creating an online property that will require you to put in hard-work, use your brains, and create a website that will help thousands but at the same time will never go out of fashion and will continue growing in value with each passing month. I will be very direct and strict and put numbers in place that you will need to follow – provided you do exactly as I say, you WILL build an online property (website) that will make you money and will be a superb asset in the long term.

An Online Business Can Be Built Only With Ethics

To Make Things Clear – First I’ll Answer Some Basic Questions

  1. Who is this system for? 
    • This system is for someone who is disciplined, has a decent IQ, believes in honesty and in the act of giving and has the capability to self-motivate. It is not easy sitting in a quiet room working toward a goal for months on end. People tend to give up, they can’t follow through, get demotivated or attracted to other schemes that promise more riches quicker. If you are one of those people, then don’t waste your time starting this activity because while I promise you that this will make you money, a lot of it and it is a stable business to be in, I can also tell you that it won’t be easy, will require hard work and it won’t happen overnight.
  2. How long before I start making money online? 
    • Your first dollars will start coming in, in 3-6 months, but it will take a minimum of 9 months to start making money that’ll justify you quitting your job. Some can start making a lot of money very quickly, whilst some can take slightly longer, but money you will make and you will ENJOY the process and the highs and lows that come with it.
  3. How much money can I make online?
    • In 2 years time your business will be worth 100,000 dollars plus and should be generating USD 5000 plus monthly in profit for you. I say this because with my technique, the average businesses I’ve seen have been valued at over USD 100,000 in 2 years’ time, hence this is a safe estimate figure to go by. After 9 months you can expect to be making enough money to sustain yourself comfortably. Just like any aspect of life, there will be some of you making a lot of money and some not so much. That will depend on the decisions you make and the smart work and hard work you put in.
  4. How much investment will I need?
    • About $350.
  5. What skills do I need?
    • Superb written English is necessary if you have a low budget. If you have money to invest, then you can hire top-class writers and they will write for you. The figure of $350 above is valid if you’re capable and willing to write yourself.
    • General street smartness.
    • Some business acumen will be handy, but not necessary.
    • Flare to read.
  6. How much time do I need to invest?
    • It’s an alternate career and at the start it requires as much time as any other profession – so I would say 8 hours a day to start with. Later when the business starts to make money, a lot of it is going to be on auto-pilot and at that time you can reduce that 8 hours a day to 5 hours a day or even move out completely by recruiting and training people to manage the business. You can also start it part-time along with a day job, but that would increase your gestation period by many months depending on the number of hours you put in per week.
  7. What technical skills do I need?
    • None, you just need to be a savvy Internet user.
  8. It’s an intangible business, can it evaporate overnight?
    • The business we’re talking about relies on people who visit your website. The search engines are a brilliant way to get users on your website, but if Search Engine Optimisation is done wrongly, then Google, Bing and other search engines can remove your website from their listings. If you follow Google Webmaster Guidelines and do stuff honestly without the intention of manipulating search rankings, then you have nothing to worry about and just like big businesses like Walmart, your business will not go anywhere. It will grow bigger and better with each passing month as you continue working on it.
  9. Will I need to recruit people?
    • Initially no, after a few years, maybe.

Let’s Get Started – Here’s a Summary of My Online Business Technique

Arjun's 3 Phase Online Money Making

Phase 1: Creating a web property worth $100,000 in the next 2 years with average monthly profit of $5000 per month.

You will create a new Brand in the business sector or niche of your choice by identifying:

  1. Product topics where there’s little or no information on the Internet. Product problems that are yet unsolved but are affecting hundreds or thousands of people every month. I will teach you how to identify keywords where there is interest but where little help is available. Here’s an example: People buy baby carriers in the US and UK all the time but new parents in the hiking community have been looking for baby carriers that would be ideal for hiking. There was no such information available online until I created a website on that topic. Another example in the same niche – baby carriers for parents with bad backs – there was no information available until we addressed it. Long story short, we addressed these problems, identified products after thorough study that would suit each customer group and suggested what people should buy. Monthly profit after this activity and 6 months of constant legitimate hard-work – $1000 per month 100% legally, ethically and honestly in a way that genuinely benefits people.
  2. Content marketing and Affiliate marketing will be used by us to monetise your business.

This will enable you to create a Brand in 9 months to 2 years that you will own 100% and that will be worth many thousands of dollars.

Phase 2: Taking that web property to the big league by expanding the brand and launching self-branded products to touch $200,000 to $1,000,000 (1 million US dollars) in sales.

You will reach this phase in 9 months to 3 years depending on how much time, energy and effort you put into your online business. I can’t say when you’ll reach this phase but I can promise that you WILL if you continue on the path I show you. In this phase you will develop your brand into a household name and will use all the experience and knowledge that you’ve acquired during content research. In this phase you will learn to source products from China, put your own branding on them and start selling on popular e-commerce websites like Amazon. This will give your business a whole new revenue stream.

Phase 3: Using your product and niche knowledge to create products that are better than anything available in the market. You will go on to make a multi-million dollar business in 5 years.

In this phase you will start innovating products, start filing your own patents and produce products in your own little niche that would be better than anything else in the market. In this phase I will teach you how to turn your very profitable Brand into a multi-million dollar business.

The Details, Getting Started and My Fee:

What you’ve read above is a very brief overview of my foolproof method of creating a genuine business online that makes serious money and genuinely helps the online community. This technique of making money online will stand the test of time and with the right leader go on to become a multi-million dollar business. I charge $200 for sending you Phase 1 of my course which is spread over 6 months and 12 emails full of content, audio and video. Of 100 people who join my course’s phase 1, only 12 go on to join Phase 2 because as I mentioned in this article, 88% people don’t have the patience, will-power, discipline or self-motivation to do this. IT IS NOT EASY! If you choose to go through to phase 2, I charge $3000 for the next 3 months as all material is sent to you over the next 3 months. This material contains everything you need to know to set up a process to import products from China into the US, making the brand bigger, the regulations, the customer service, returns, and profit margins. Of all businesses that complete Phase 2, I personally get involved to take businesses through to phase 3 where I contribute in the innovation of your products and help take your business into the big league.

What’s next:

My course is opening again soon and if you want to be a part of it, please leave your name and email in the form below and we’ll inform you when that happens.

Further reading – Be Inspired!

There are innumerable entrepreneurs making hundreds of thousands of dollars per month from their online businesses – some from Podcasts, videos, amazon, affiliate marketing, adsense, fiverr, ebay, advertising, clickbank and what not, but they all have the following in common: their primary objective is to make their user happy and to satisfy the user’s demands, they’re all honest entrepreneurs who work hard and run processes that are legit and legal and finally they’re in it for the long haul not into the “make money fast” or “get rich quick” schemes.

Here are my favourites:

Unfortunately Measure / MobileOcr / Engriks Has Stopped – Android Mega Viruses

Unfortunately Measure Has Stopped

Unfortunately mobileOcr Has Stopped

Unfortunately engriks Has Stopped

Please note: This post has been updated many times, and now we have found a solution together. Scroll down to the last paragraph to go straight to the solution.

Welcome to the world of super-annoying but super powerful android phone viruses. These viruses can’t be removed by restarting the phone, stopping apps, removing apps – what’s more, even doing a hard reset where the entire phone is formatted to factory default settings doesn’t remove these super stubborn malware like Measure, engriks and mobileOcr!

You would think – Why not install an anti-virus, right? Anti Virus software like “NQ Security” (that come as a default with Gionee phones) have no idea what is going on and are no good for these viruses. I scanned the phone and NQ security didn’t even report malware or virus, forget removing or cleaning it. Even McAfee has no idea about dealing with this according to some forums. AVG anti-virus evidently does uninstall the virus but it re-installs itself a few seconds later.

I tried looking everywhere around the Internet and I have no idea how to stop the constant popups that just won’t let me use the phone. For you to come to a solution to this problem and install a proper malware cleaner, you need to go to GooglePlay Store and install the app right? The absolutely horrendous popups with “unfortunately this app has stopped” will keep coming up relentlessly. You will get .5 to 1 second intervals when you can quickly click parts of the screen, but I swear, this is called Robot Apocalypse. Why isn’t there an option in Android to stop App Error popups altogether? There should be a way to pause it. Application Error Report details mentioned on android.com make no sense to a non-technical guy like me and doesn’t help.

I saw someone recommending installing Ghost Push Trojan Killer by going to the Play store, but I’m unable to reach the play store. Someone said install Titanium Back Up Pro and it will solve the problem.

I’ll call the Gionee service centre and see what they have to say. Guys, please post in the comments below if you do happen to find a solution.

Update: Do Not Try Any of The Following Solutions (these were recommended by experts but didn’t work)

  1. Firstly try Going to Settings -> Apps -> Running Apps -> Disable Measure and other apps that are causing the problem. It will probably not fix the problem as it didn’t do for me.
  2. Keep the irritating dialogue box pressed for a few seconds, then it will take you to the running apps and show you the app that’s causing this dialog to open. Disable that app. This also didn’t solve my problem.
  3. Switch off the phone, remove the battery and re-insert it after a few minutes. And the irritating popups are gone! But they re-appear after a few minutes.
  4. What if I have a non-removable battery? In that case you’ll have to take it to the service centre.

Here’s a Way to Disable The Irritating Popup Messages Temporarily

Disable the wifi and restart the phone. The popups won’t appear at all. But unfortunately once you start the WI-Fi, the popups will restart.

What Happened At The Service Centre?

I just came back home with my phone cleaned by the Gionee service centre. The system looks new, the icons are different so they’ve definitely done something. After switching it on and connecting to the WIFI:

I START GETTING THE DAMN MESSAGES AGAIN!! SOMEONE SAVE ME!

The money I’ve paid to get the Gionee phone repaired has given me a 1 month warranty. I’m taking my phone to them again today/tomorrow. I’ll update what happens next. Until then, please keep the solutions coming in the comments.

Update 29th October 2015

After going back to the Gionee service centre and telling them about this recurring problem, they said that in that case the phone will have to be sent back to the company. They’ve now asked me to come back in a few days. Until then, I am without a phone. Reminds me of the early 2000s when landline phones were the only way to contact anyone, blessing in disguise.

Update 7th of November 2015

My phone is back from the Gionee service centre with a new looking OS and the problem is fixed! They took about 5 days, completely reset the phone and Engriks, Mobile OCR and Measure have gone! I’ve now changed the settings so no application can ever get installed without my permission, non-trustworthy apps don’t get installed and all kinds of auto installations are disabled.

I apologise that we couldn’t find a DIY solution for this problem. Those who are getting these errors must contact their respective service centres immediately. My phone was out of warranty and Gionee charged only $4 (Rs 200) for this.

Finally, my phone is fixed!

Update 26th December 2015 – An Easy DIY Solution Found!

Firstly a big thanks to users “Indian” and “Marius” and all other users who helped in trying to find a solution.

HappyAtWork01

Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Play Store. Measure/ Mobilocr / Engriks  will annoy you and won’t let you enter username and password if you’re not logged in. So make sure you have copied and pasted the password before-hand so you can enter it quickly.
  2. Search for “CM Security” and install it!
    CM Security Antivirus AppLock Android Apps on Google Play
  3. This will most probably fix your phone after the scan. For a small percentage of people, this will not solve the problem. In that case, go to the next step:
  4. Search for an app called “Ghost Push Trojan Killer” and install it!
    Ghost Push Trojan Killer Android Apps on Google Play
  5. Run it! Requires rooting your phone. Allow it – let it do its thing and in 99% cases this will fix your phone.

Once again, a big thank you to everyone who helped out. 🙂

Good Parenthood – Why The World Needs It

If we break it down to the basics then its easy to see where it all begins – our world begins with people being born. People who grow up to do different things that make our world what it is. Some become not-so-renowned silent workers, some grow up to become great leaders; some are feared for unleashing terror while some are hailed as wonderful philanthropists. Whatever a person becomes and does in life is influenced by what he sees and experiences and the most significant impact of these influences hits him when he’s still a child. Childhood is a soft, malleable phase that can be shaped easily for permanence. Good parenthood hence, stands as an inevitable part of a happy childhood that promises of a successful future. (And by successful here I mean, a future throughout which the child bears a good self-esteem and regards others and himself in a respectful and kind manner.)

When parents genuinely care and work to raise their children, the children notice the attention that they’re receiving. They may not always listen to their parents but they always secretly observe the kinds of efforts being made to help them grow better, they observe how their parents behave in different situations and sub-consciously take up from what they see. Good parenthood can mold the children into becoming successful people and most importantly good human-beings. American author, H. Jackson Brown said, “Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.” Hence, let us try to set examples for our children by monitoring our conduct and enriching our behavior with qualities like patience, forgiveness, respect and love so that they grow up to become good humans who benefit the world and make it a beautiful place!

iPad 2 Eye Strain and Migraine Headache

Enough! I’ve tried looking online for a solution to this headache and tremendous eye strain that I get when using the iPad. Initially when I Googled this problem, I found no results which led me into believing that I was the only one suffering. That was 2 years ago and I had to stop using the Apple iPads to the extent that even looking at a quick video that someone else showed me, or reading a quick line started to give me that weird eye strain and migraine feeling.

Eye strain and migraine headache caused by Apple iPad 2
Eye strain and migraine headache caused by Apple iPad 2

Lately, that’s after 2 years I realised that it wasn’t just me!! I was in conversation with my sister in law and she said her father couldn’t use the iPad because of eye strain and headache. That’s not all, another friend complained of the same a few weeks ago. With my most precious purchase at one point being completely useless for me, I was obviously not very happy about it. But when you think of the number of people unhappy with the device’s screen, can you imagine what a widely sold health hazard this iPad is!?

The screen of the iPad 2 is pretty crap, very pixelated and throws this sharpish radiation. I also use my laptop almost the entire day, the Google Nexus 5, my latest gadget love and even the iPhone 5. They’re all okay. Infact even the new iPad retina displays seem to be okay as I did use one for a brief period.

Once bitten twice shy. I’m never buying an iPad again! If you too are getting a headache after using the iPad, I suggest you return that piece of agonising machinery back to Apple and ask for your money back. I promise you, you’re not alone, there are thousands suffering from this and in loneliness. No one seems to be writing anything about this or acknowledging it either.

VentureGiant.com’s Rishi Anand and Tim Lancaster made my day!

This is a little true incident that made my day and possibly, will help my business in a big way, going forward.

I have been planning to set up my own online business and have been inundated with ideas over a long time. Nothing seemed to strike the right balance until I decided to go full throttle with this idea I call Z.  Times are bad, and because of recession (especially in the UK), I have been struggling to find work for my company. I thought this was the best time to actually give my business idea Z a good shot.

One fine day, I decided to look for some help for my idea online so went on and Googled for “Entrepreneur support in London”. VentureGiant.com came up. I found a brilliant web site focused on finding investors for entrepreneurs – a unique platform where investors and entrepreneurs meet, entrepreneurs pitch with details of their business or business idea, investment required, return and other details like time required to break even, projections, industry etc and the facility to upload a video explaining the idea.

I immediately signed up and uploaded details of Z – my business idea that I knew will do amazingly well. I uploaded cash projections, investment required and other details that I thought were important to attract angel investors.

A couple of days later, I got my first enquiry from an Investor. But this was where I was stuck. VentureGiant.com demanded I pay 100GBP to view investor details and to be able to contact the investor. At this stage I wrote an email to VentureGiant.com explaining my cash situation. With hardly any money in the account, it was impossible to shell out that 100 quid for a “possible” enquiry.

Mr Tim Lancaster, Business Development Manager from VentureGiant.com replied back with a supportive email. I explained the scenario and proposed to pay if I find a suitable investor. The call to action was forwarded by Tim to Managing Director Mr Rishi Anand. Tim emailed me back saying “Mr Rishi Anand” will pay for you. “Wow! ” I thought, these guys are serious about finding me an investor.

I was quite surprised to be honest. Most of the other websites are hardly useful, and are aimed at making money, but VentureGiant.com is one site that actually believes in and tries hard to connect Entrepreneurs and Investors.

Although that particular enquiry didn’t convert into an investor, there was incredible knowledge gained.

I am very impressed with the team at VentureGiant.com – Mr Rishi Anand, Mr Tim Lancaster and others who are working to make the two ends meet. I wish them good luck with their venture. Thanks again guys, if you ever come to read this..

Who was better Albert Einstein or Isaac Newton?

I developed a website as a research project. It was called CafeIntellect.com and on that site, I had a simple poll – Who do you think was better (meaning greater in terms of his achievements) – Albert Einstein or Isaac Nwewton.

The end result was Isaac Newton. People voted him 1170 to 973. Here are some comments that the site received:

Newton vs Einstein
Newton vs Einstein

name=Abbigal
message=Albert Einstein was retarted Isaac Newton was way better

name=Spoorthy
message=My vote is to the GREAT SCIETIST-Albert Einstein. Everyone vote to him. he’s really amazing

name=vaibhav s karalgikar
message=”SIR ISSAC is god,he was the reason for today’s scientists…plzzz don’t compare god with anyone else”

name=chemist
message=Linus Pauling

name=Akshay
message=people think albert rox just bcz he maid cool discoveries but he was there in the 19 th century and had so many great people before who discovered many things which included newton as well but newton did not have einstein before him.So people PLEASE VOTE FOR NEWTON BECAUSE HE ROX!!!!!!!

name=Matzeklose
message=Isaac no.<br />Einstein, you really Rock!!

name=Mary-Anne
message=I dont really know much about Einstein but I’ve read a lot about Newton and even if I didnt admire him I’d give my vote to him because he discovered so many things in a time when there wasnt really much to work off.

name=Jas
message=My vote goes to Einstein whose phenomenal theory of relativity and the equation e=mc² changed the equations of the world we live in… for ever after. The fact that his image itself is an epitome of intelligence and scientific endeavour in modern world, is evidence enough to prove his greatness!

name=Nasreem
message=My vote goes for Ablert Einstein. His papers changed the way world and things around us are looked at. Had it not beed for the time-space research, we’d still be living in the modern dark ages.

name=Will Barrett
message=I’m for Newton. Without the calculus, discovery of gravity and action-reaction physis, many of post Newton advancements in electro-magnetism and statistic physics would never have gotten off the ground. If the poll was for the greatest deep thinker, I would give it to Einstein. He laid the foundation for relativity and quantum, even though he never liked quantum theory himself. 😉

name=Racoon
message=I read a book called “Scientific Genius, 20 greatest minds of all time”. Who IS the greatest scientist who influenced Mankind the most and whose accomplishments you admire? Why???

HERE ARE THE CANDIDATES:
Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) – Scientific Method
Archimedes (c. 287-212 BC) – Geometry and Mechanics
Galileo Galilei ( 1564-1642) – Astronomy & Physics
William Harvey ( 1578-1657) – Phsyiology
Rene Descartes (1596-1642) – Analytic Geometry
Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) – Probability and Projective Geometry
Issac Newton (1642-1726) – Mechanics and Calculus
Karl Gauss (1777-1855) – Pure and Applied Mathmatics
Michael Faraday (1791-1867) – Electromagnetism
Charles Darwin (1809-1882) – Evolution
Evariste Galois (1811-1832) – Group theory
Gregor Mendel (1822-1884) – Genetics
Robert Koch (1843-1910) – Bacteriology
Ivan Pavlov (1849-1936) – Nueropsychology
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) – Relativity theory
Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) – Quantum Mechanics
John Von Neumann (1903-1957) – Computer Science
Alan Turing (1912-1954) – Computer Science
Linus Pauling (1901-1994) – Chemistry
Stephen Hawking (1942- ) – Cosmology

There is no wrong answer,  Again, this list is from a book by Jim Glenn and he admits many names are excluded and some perhaps some wrongly included. But thankfully mankind has been BLESSED by such brilliant minds! I cast my ballot for Einstein and Newton together, can’t pin point one who’s better than the other.

name=Boerseun
message=Olly Isaac gets my vote, b’cause I reckon that he had the biggest influence to this day. But then, it can be said that he couldn’t have done what he did without being able to stand on the shoulders of all the greats before him. All the way back to the very first great scientist who did the very first life changing experiment. So, although it’s hard to say, Isaac Newton is my vote.

name=Grey Waldron
message=Newton’s discovery of gravity is the all time winner. Just like the wheel was the invention of the millennium. It is basic, but how many people thought about that before him? Everything else is an intelligent scientific conclusion.

name=Jordan
message=Who was better? that is a general question…..both were excellent at observation and understanding they simplified very complex ideas.. but I admit, I have a weakness for the way that Einstein made his views so relatable- and he made space and time appear wonderous, and what a humanitarian!

name=Jenni
message=”Every action has an equal and opposite reaction” – Isaac Newton. was so fascinated with newton in school days. no wonder he’s leading the poll..

name=AJ
message=Thats right Jim, but Albert Einstein was a genius. Infact when his brain was studied in detail, very recently, they found it was a wee bit bigger than a normal human’s. Plus he was an allrounder, unlike many other scientists.

name=Jim Sheldon
message=Newton’s research came at a time when there was lesser scientific knowledge. Einstein commented on various theories of Newton. I would go for Newton.
