Cotton Ear Buds... (Must Read It)

Please do not show sympathy to people selling buds on roadside or at signals... Just wanted to warn you people not to buy those packs of ear buds you get at the roadside. It's made from cotton that has already been used in hospitals. They take all the dirty, blood and pus filled cotton, wash it, bleach it and use it to make ear buds. So, unless you want to become the first person in the world to get Herpes Zoster Oticus (a viral infection of the inner, middle, and external ear) of the ear and that too from a cotton bud, DON'T BUY THEM!

I'm calling your attention to know if this news is true or not.

$45 Billion Net Worth The Fourth Richest Person In The World...

Lakshmi Niwas Mittal is an Indian industrialist based in the United Kingdom. He is the fourth richest person in the world with a net worth of around U.S. $45 billion. He was born in Sadulpur village, in the Churu district of Rajasthan, India, and he resides in Kensington, London. He is the chairman and CEO of ArcelorMittal (founder of Mittal before merger with Arcelor) and also serves as a non-executive director of Goldman Sachs, EADS and ICICI Bank.

Mittal was born in a Rajasthan Agrawal family and spent his initial years in India, living with his extended family on bare floors and rope beds in a house built by his grandfather.[citation needed] His grandfather worked for the Tarachand Ghanshyamdas Poddar, one of the leading industrial firms of India. His father started an Oil Mill in Hardoi, Uttar Pradesh as a working partner for Lala Gulab Chand, a local business tycoon. The family eventually moved to Calcutta where his father, Mohan, became a partner in a steel company and made a fortune.

After witnessing India win only one medal, bronze, in the 2000 Summer Olympics, and one medal, silver, at the 2004 Summer Olympics, Mittal decided to set up Mittal Champions Trust with US$9 million to support 10 Indian athletes with world-beating potential. In 2008 Mittal awarded Abhinav Bindra with Rs. 1.5 Crore, for getting India its first individual Olympic gold medal in shooting.

For Comic Relief 2007, he matched the money raised (~£1 million) on the celebrity special BBC programme, The Apprentice.

Trial Begins For Iraqi Journalist Who Threw Shoes...

BAGHDAD — Court proceedings have begun for the Iraqi journalist who threw shoes at then-President George W. Bush late last year. Dozens of supporters gathered at the court in western Baghdad Thursday to praise Muntadhar al-Zeidi and demand his release.

Al-Zeidi has been in custody since the Dec. 14 outburst at Bush's joint news conference with Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. The defense argues the charge of assaulting a foreign leader is too harsh because it carries a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment.

Al-Zeidi was transformed into a cult figure across the Muslim world where thousands hailed him as a hero and demanded his release for what they considered a justified act of patriotism.

More Than Seven...

Middle-age men who ate seven or more eggs a week had a higher risk of death, US researcher reported.Men with diabetes who ate any eggs at all raised their risk of death during a 20-year period studied, according to the study published in the American Journal of Clinic Nutrition. The study adds to an ever-growing body of evidence, much of it contradictory, about how safe eggs are to eat. It did not examine what about the eggs might affect the risk of death.

Men without diabetes could eat up to six eggs a week with no extra risk of death. Dr Luc Djoisse and Dr J Michael Gaziano of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School found. “Whereas egg consumption of up to six eggs a week was not associated with the risk of all-cause mortality, consumption of seven or more eggs a week was associated with a 23 per cent greater risk of death,” they wrote.“However, among male physician with diabetes, any egg consumption is associated with the greater risk of all-cause mortality, and there was suggestive evidence for a greater risk of MI (heart attack) and stroke." They urged more study in the general population.

Eggs are rich in cholesterol, which in high amounts can clog arteries and raise the risk of heart attack and stroke.One expert on nutrition and heart disease said the study suggest middle-aged men, at least, should watch how many eggs they eat. “More egg on our faces? It’s really hard to say this point, but it is still seems, if you’re a middle-aged male physician and enjoy eggs more than once a day, that having it some egg left on your face may be better than having it go down your gullet,” said Dr Robert Eckel of University of Colorado and former president of American Heart Association.

“But, remember: eggs are like all other foods----they are neither ‘good’ nor ‘bad,’ and they can be part of an over-all heart-healthy diet.” Eckel wrote in a commentary, the much larger Physicians’ Health Study, which has been watching doctors since 1981 who have agrees to report regularly on their health and lifestyle habits.Over 20 years, 1,550 of the men had heart attacks, 1,342 have strokes, and more than 5,000 died.

“Egg consumption was not associated with heart attack and stroke,” the researchers wrote.
But the men who ate seven eggs a week or more were 23 per cent more likely to have died during the 20-year period.
Diabetic men who ate mostly eggs also were older, fatter, ate more vegetables but less breakfast cereal, and were more likely to drink alcohol, smoke and less likely to exercise ---- all factors that can effect the risk of heart attack and death.

Favorite Passwords: "1234" and 'passwords"...

Better think twice before choosing a password for emails, online bank accounts and airline tickets. Password that show no imagination or distinctiveness are easy to prey for information pirates, a new US study says. A statistical analysis of 28,000 passwords recently stolen from a popular US website and posted on the internet reveals that people often do the easy thing.

If found that 16 percent took a first name as a password, often their own or one of their children, according to the study published by Information Week. Another 14 percent relied on the easiest keyboard combination's to remember such as "1234" or "12345678". For those those using English keyboards, "QWERTY", was popular. Likewise, "AZERTY" scored with people with European keyboards.

Five percent of the stolen passwords were names of television shows or stars popular with young people like "hannah" inspired by singer Hannah Montana. "Pokemon", "Matrix" and "Ironman" were others.

So we have to be very careful when making or using a password.

Too Much TV Watching Can Cause Depression...

Media use in adolescence and depression in young adulthood (Archives of general Psychiatry) a study, published in the February issue of The Archives of General Psychiatry, found a rising risk of depressive symptoms with increasing hours spent watching television. There was no association of depression with full exposure to computer related games, videocassettes or radio.

Researchers used data from a larger analysis of 4,142 adolescents who were not depressed at the start of study. After seven years of follow-up more than seven percent have symptoms of depressions. But while about 6 percent of those who watched less than three hours a day were depressed, more than 17 percent of those who watched more than nine hours a day had depresseive symptoms.

The association was stronger than boys than in girls, and it held after adjusting for age, race, socioeconomic status and educational level. “We really don’t know what it was specifically about TV exposure that was associated with depressions and disruptive behavior, whether it was a particular kind of programming or some contextual factor such as watching alone or with other people” said Dr. Brian Primack, the lead author and an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.

Hundreds Of Dolphins Stranded Last February 10, 2009 In Bataan, Philippines...

ORION, Philippines – At least 200 melon-headed whales flocked to shallow waters of Manila Bay on Tuesday, prompting a massive rescue by hundreds of volunteers and fishermen who used their boats and hands to drive them back to deep seas. The unusual occurrence may have been triggered by a sea quake that could have damaged the whales' eardrums and disoriented them, or the pod could have been following a sick or injured leader, Malcolm Sarmiento, director of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, said in a telephone interview.

He said the dolphins — between 200 and 300 of them — were spotted about a mile (1.6 kilometers) off shore, swimming back and forth between Pilar and Orion townships in Bataan province. Fishermen and villagers trooped to the beach and waded into the chest-deep water, clapping their hands and hitting the surface to drive the whales away. More than 20 boats with their engines shut guided the animals to the open sea.

"It's something unusual. It's the first time that such a large pod has entered Manila Bay, and is acting strangely," Sarmiento said. Alberto Venturina, the provincial veterinarian, said three dead melon-headed whales found beached farther up north in Abucay township include two adult females, one of which was pregnant, and an infant male. The two adults had damaged eardrums, he added.

Another beached whale was in the process of being rescued, Venturina said. Dolphins [whales] with injured eardrums become disoriented, cannot dive for food and are too weak to swim and just flow with the current, he said. If it's a sick leader, the animal needs to be identified and taken out of sight of the rest of the pod so the healthy dolphins could be prodded back to sea, he said.

Fisheries officials were coordinating with private groups and fishermen to stop the whales from being beached and prevent more deaths, he said. Wardens were positioned around the area and fishermen warned not to harm the whales.

That's my province Bataan and my hometown Orion, Philippines... I wish I was their. My niece told me last night that his father are one of the spectators and one of those who help to save the dolphins… How lucky they are saw almost 300 dolphins in one place. Doesn’t expect ah… And the day after that brilliant experienced almost of the fisherman caught a large amount of fish and crabs. I hope it brings a lucky charm to the entire fisherman out their.

The World Third Richest Person As Of February 2008... US$58 billion (2008)

William Henry "Bill" Gates III (born October 28, 1955) is an American business magnate, philanthropist, author, the world's third richest person (as of February 8, 2008), and chairman of Microsoft, the software company he founded with Paul Allen. Gates was the richest person in the world for 15 consecutive years. During his career at Microsoft, Gates held the positions of CEO and chief software architect, and remains the largest individual shareholder with more than 8 percent of the common stock. He has also authored or co-authored several books.

Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. Although he is admired by many, a large number of industry insiders criticize his business tactics, which they consider anti-competitive, an opinion which has in some cases been upheld by the courts. In the later stages of his career, Gates has pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, established in 2000.

Bill Gates stepped down as chief executive officer of Microsoft in January, 2000. He remained as chairman and created the position of chief software architect. In June, 2006, Gates announced that he would be transitioning from full-time work at Microsoft to part-time work and full-time work at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He gradually transferred his duties to Ray Ozzie, chief software architect and Craig Mundie, chief research and strategy officer. Gates' last full-time day at Microsoft was June 27, 2008. He remains at Microsoft as non-executive chairman.

Australia's Most Terrible Fires Killed 135...

WHITTLESEA, Australia – Police declared incinerated towns crime scenes Monday, and Australia's prime minister spoke of mass murder after investigators said arsonists may have set some of the country's worst wildfires in history. The death toll rose to 135. The scale of the carnage, growing daily, has shocked a nation that endures deadly firestorms every few years. There were no quick answers, but officials said panic and the freight-train speed of the firefront probably accounted for the unusually high toll.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, visibly upset during a television interview, reflected the country's disgust at the idea that arsonists may have set some of the 400 fires that devastated Victoria state, or helped them jump containment lines. "What do you say about anyone like that?" Rudd said. "There's no words to describe it, other than it's mass murder." The country's top law officer, Attorney General Robert McClelland, said that people found to have deliberately set fires could face murder charges. Murder can carry a life sentence.

More than one dozen fires still burned uncontrollably across the state, though conditions were much cooler than on Saturday, which saw record-high heat and winds of up to 60 mph (100 kph). At least 750 homes were destroyed on Saturday, the Victoria Country Fire Service said. Some 850 square miles (2,200 kilometers) of land were burned out.

Officials said both the tolls of human life and property would almost certainly rise as they reached deeper into the disaster zone, and forecasters said temperatures would rise again later in the week, posing a risk of further flare-ups. Police updated the death toll late Monday to 135.

Bon Jovi ReturnsTo New Orleans For 2009 Jazz Fest

Bon Jovi will rock the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for the first time this year, returning to Louisiana after donating $1 million in 2005 to build homes for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

"I'm thrilled," Jazz Fest producer Quint Davis said Thursday, calling the group "one of the greatest American rock bands of all time."

In the wake of Katrina, which devastated New Orleans and much of the Gulf Coast in August 2005, Bon Jovi gave $1 million to help build 28 homes for low-income families displaced by the storm. The homes were built in Houma, a coastal community roughly 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans, through Habitat for Humanity and Oprah's Angel Network.

"That really says something about this group's sense of humanity and responsibility," Davis said. "It says that they're unique and extraordinary, that they have a spirit and a soul ... to be that generous."

Bon Jovi formed in the early 1980s with lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Richie Sambora, keyboardist David Bryan and drummer Tico Torres. The band has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

How I desire I’m staying near in that place so I can witness that tremendous performance. I wish…

Do You Know Where Your Child Is? Test Google’s Maps.

With an upgrade to its mobile maps, Google Inc. hopes to prove it can track people on the go as effectively as it searches for information on the Internet. The new software to be released Wednesday will enable people with mobile phones and other wireless devices to automatically share their whereabouts with family and friends. The feature, dubbed "Latitude," expands upon a tool introduced in 2007 to allow mobile phone users to check their own location on a Google map with the press of a button.

"This adds a social flavor to Google maps and makes it more fun," said Steve Lee, a Google product manager. It could also raise privacy concerns, but Google is doing its best to avoid a backlash by requiring each user to manually turn on the tracking software and making it easy to turn off or limit access to the service. Google also is promising not to retain any information about its users' movements. Only the last location picked up by the tracking service will be stored on Google's computers, Lee said.

The software plots a user's location — marked by a personal picture on Google's map — by relying on cell phone towers, global positioning systems or a Wi-Fi connection to deduce their location. The system can follow people's travels in the United States and 26 other countries. It's left up to each user to decide who can monitor their location. The social mapping approach is similar to a service already offered by Loopt Inc., a 3-year-old company located near Google's Mountain View headquarters.Loopt's service already is compatible with more than 100 types of mobile phones.

To start out, Google Latitude will work on Research In Motion Ltd.'s Blackberry and devices running on Symbian software or Microsoft Corp.'s Windows Mobile. It will also operate on some T-1 Mobile phones running on Google's Android software and eventually will work on Apple Inc.'s iPhone and iTouch.To widen the software's appeal, Google is offering a version that can be installed on personal computers as well.

The PC access is designed for people who don't have a mobile phone but still may want to keep tabs on their children or someone else special, Lee said. People using the PC version can also be watched if they are connected to the Internet through Wi-Fi. Google can plot a person's location within a few yards if it's using GPS or might be off by several miles if it's relying on transmission from cell phone towers. People who don't want to be precise about their whereabouts can choose to display just the city instead of a specific neighborhood.

There are no current plans to sell any advertising alongside Google's tracking service, although analysts believe knowing a person's location eventually will unleash new marketing opportunities. Google has been investing heavily in the mobile market during the past two years in an attempt to make its services more useful to people when they're away from their office or home computers.
