Vaarnam Aayiram, the much expected tamil movie, directed by Gautham Menon starring Surya, Sameera Reddy, Divya, and Simran is all set to hit the screens on Oct 28. The much awaited audio songs of the movie released recently has been the buzz amongst the youngsters now. Harris Jeyaraj, a trusted partner of Gautham has composed seven songs for the movie. The movie is supposed to portray the life journey of a person, and the songs are no less ironical to the story line. The songs are quite simple and they do please us quite easily on listening a few times. Gautham - Harris combo has undoubtedly worked magic again.
Due credit should be given to lyricist Thamarai for having penned the feelings of an youngster,a lover and a man who has lost his love in the best possible manner. Its the lyrics that make you like these sings even more. The song that almost catches you the first time is 'Nenjukkul Peidhidum Maamazhai' sung beautifully by Hariharan. This song is in a male perspective, depicting the feelings of a man in love describing the impact of his lover in him. An in a most pleasing manner the songs starts with guitar note that quite touches you. 'Mundhinam Paarthene' another pleasing number depicting the feel of a guy who has fallen in love. The mouth organ piece that goes along with the tune of the song at the end of the song keeps lingering in the ears even after switching to the next track. 'Adiye Kolluthe' a youthful energetic rock number, starts of extremely well with some rocking guitar music and is quite an appealing number sung by Krish, Benny and Shruthi Haasan (though Shruthi seems to pronounce in a rockkish style).'Ava enna',a song with quite a difference to all the previous songs, is a slow song of the gaana style that portrays the grieve of a man who has lost his lover. It seems to get close to ones heart after a few times of listening. Karthik's voice is the biggest plus for the song. 'Yethi yethi'another youthful song, seems to be the introduction song is fast and likeable too. 'Anal Mele' sung by Sudha Ragunathan comes as another surprise which is classical and the feel of the song easily touches the listener. 'Oh Shanthi' carries the theme of the movie sung beautifully by S.P.B.Charan and Clinton. This theme comes up in Nenjathil peidhidum song too but in a different tempo. Both of them are excellent.
What do these songs do to the movie??? They have worked quite well in increasing the expectation for the movie. The songs live up to the expectation and could well prove to be a big plus for the movie. Hope the movie lives up to the expectation too!!

Just a day after I had written a post expecting a strong comeback from Dada, he has decided the other way around. On unusual circumstances, Dada had a press meet today and after having answered the questions of the reporters for about 15 mins, just when the meet about to be over Sourav informed the reporters that he has another information to share and that's about his retirement. The news is almost a shock for his fans who had celebrated his comeback a few days ago. Sourav has given himself four test matches to end his blistering career on a high. One can expect him to go out there and enjoy his final moments in the field against the Aussies and let his bat do the talking. The decision comes up as a result of the continuous pressure that the BCCI had been thrusting on him for the past few years. Sourav feels he'll be having a pressure free life out of cricket. True to the core. Am totally against BCCI ill treating the most senior players who have kept up the name of our country high in the World arena. Hope this be the last of such occasion and me like most of the people out there feel, the man doesn deserve such an end to an era which marked the major essential changes in Indian Cricket, most of all showed Indian cricket the Winning way.
Sourav, the most dynamic captains of Indian cricket, has served Indian cricket for almost 14 yrs and its time to celebrate the career that revolutionised Indian cricket. I take up this opportunity to let my thoughts go back to the high points of Dada s career in the upcoming days...
We Salute U DADA.... You are a Legend...

The Prince of Kolkata, after a long speculation has been selected for the first two tests of the Border-Gavasakar trophy commencing on Oct 8. After having being left out for Irani cup tie, the chances of Ganguly getting back into seemed faint. Thanks to the new selection committee headed by Krish Srikkanth, Ganguly has now been brought back into the side. Though there is a lot of media speculation about the Voluntary retirement scheme for the senior players, the news that Ganguly is back means a lot to his fans. There have been mixed reactions to such talks throughout the nation, but Captain Anil Kumble s denial of such a scheme has ended all those speculations. Hope this is not the end of road for the 'FAB 5'of Indian Cricket.
To get valuable match practise ahead of the series, Sourav is now in Chennai with the India A side to play against the New Zealand A side. 'When the going gets tough, the tough ones get goin' as they say, nothing least could be expected from this man who has already proved his credentials by making a strong comeback in 2006 in South Africa after being forced out of the side by Greg Chappel in 2005. This could well be a second comeback for Sourav to make it a point to the world that Its too early to write him off. Badly expecting him alongside the Fab 5 of the Indian cricket to go out there and crush the Australians... All de best DADA....

The Baptism: John the Baptist baptizes Jesus.
The Wedding Of Cana: The first miracle performed by Jesus at the mariage when requestd by his Mother.
The Proclamation Of The Kingdom: Jesus proclaims of his coming again and the doomsday.
The Transfiguration: The appearance of Moses and Elias when Jesus goes to pray with his disciples Peter James and John.
The Institution Of The Eucharist: The Last Supper as known to many. This is when Jesus places the Holy Eucharist before the disciples to be given to all who follow in his path.
One point which irritates me to the hilt is spending a lot of time in getting a card. And that I avoided by doing it online. With fast processing and prompt service I was able to search for a credit card which suits my needs to the tee and also will make sure I don't spend more than I need to. Finding the right card is like half job done, the rest was taken care of too. I am done with the entire process within a few minutes. Now I go out shopping with no fear of exceeding my limit. I have someone to take care of that.
The Annunciation: The angel Gabriel announces to Mother Mary the good news of the birth of Jesus in her womb.
The Visitation: Mother Mary pays a visit to her cousin Elizabeth who was also expecting. This child was then known as the forerunner of Jesus Christ, John the Baptist.
The Nativity: The birth of Jesus in a manger in Bethlehem.
The Presentation: The first entry of Jesus in the temple as a baby.
The Finding of Jesus: Jesus gets lost in the temple when he goes there with his parents for a feast. They then find Him there in the company of the priests and other elders of the temple.
But when you shop online you need not face all these. Just key in your searches and you get your answers in seconds. You can choose among the variety where you can find almost all the types that are seen in the market. And you get all this sitting in a single place, at your home!

Hail Mary, full of grace. Our Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, our Lord Jesus Christ. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at all times and at the hour of our death. Amen.
At each of the large beads(which constitute over four) is the "Our Father" which was taught by our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and glory forever and ever. Amen.
At the crucifix which is the first point where the prayer starts, we start with the Nicene Creed(the shorter version) which comes as follows:
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ His only Son, Our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
In addition there are two prayers to be said before and after we start praying on the rosary.
Prayer Before The Rosary: Queen of the Holy Rosary, you have designed to come to Fatima and Medjugorje, to reveal to the three shepherd children and six visionaries, the treasures of grace hidden in the Rosary. Inspire my heart with a sincere love of this devotion, in order that by meditating on the Mysteries of our Redemption which are recalled in it, I may obtain peace for the world, the conversion of sinners, and the favor which I ask of you in this Rosary (Mention your request). I ask it for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of souls, especially for my own. Amen.
Prayer After The Rosary: O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life; grant, we beseech Thee, that, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
In addition after the first three Hail Mary on the small beads and after every decade we say "Glory be to the Father". Here is this prayer.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
The rosary consists of beads which are grouped in tens and there are total of five such groups. Each is called as a decade and each decade represents an event or mystery in the life of Jesus. So there are four sets of Mysteries that the Rosary represents under the head of Joyful, Luminous, Sorrowful, and Glorious. These mysteries are then said on their specific days. The Apostle's Creed is said on the Crucifix; the Our Father is said on each of the Large Beads; the Hail Mary is said on each of the Small Beads; the Glory Be after the three Hail Mary's at the beginning of the Rosary, and after each decade of Small Beads.

Our Father Who Art In Heaven.
Don't interrupt me. I'm praying.
But -- you called ME!
Called you? No, I didn't call you. I'm praying. Our Father who art in Heaven.
There -- you did it again!
Called ME. You said, 'Our Father who art in Heaven'. Well, here I am. What's on your mind?
But I didn't mean anything by it. I was, you know, just saying my prayers for the day. I always say the Lord's Prayer. It makes me feel good, kind of like fulfilling a duty.
Well, all right. Go on.
Okay, Hallowed be thy name.
Hold it right there. What do you mean by that?
By 'Hallowed be thy name'?
It means, it means . . good grief, I don't know what it means. How in the world should I know? It's just a part of the prayer....By the way, what does it mean?
It means honoured, holy, wonderful.
Hey, that makes sense. I never thought about what 'hallowed' meant before. Thanks.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Do you really mean that?
Sure, why not?
What are you doing about it?
Doing? Why, nothing, I guess. I just think it would be kind of neat if you got control, of everything down here like you have up there. We're kinda in a mess down here you know.
Yes, I know; but, have I got control of you?
Well, I go to church.
That isn't what I asked you. What about your bad temper? You've really got a problem there, you know. And then there's the way you spend your money -- all on yourself. And what about the kind of books you read?
Now hold on just a minute! Stop picking on me! I'm just as good as some of the rest of those people at church!
Excuse ME. I thought you were praying for my will to be done. If that is to happen,
it will have to start with the ones who are praying for it. Like you -- for example.
Oh, all right. I guess I do have some hang-ups. Now that you mention it, I could probably name some others.
So could I.
I haven't thought about it very much until now, but I really would like to cut out some of those things. I would like to, you know, be really free.
Good. Now we're getting somewhere.We'll work together -- You and ME. I'm proud of You.
Look, Lord, if you don't mind, I need to finish up here. This is taking a lot longer than it usually does. Give us this day, our daily bread.
You need to cut out the bread. You're overweight as it is.
Hey, wait a minute! What is this? Here I was doing my religious duty, and all of a sudden you break in and remind me of all my hang-ups.
Praying is a dangerous thing. You just might get what you ask for. Remember, you called ME -- and here I am. It's too late to stop now. Keep praying.....Well, go on.
I'm scared to.
Scared? Of what?
I know what you'll say.
Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
What about ... ?
See? I knew it! I knew you would bring her up! Why, Lord, she's told lies about me, spread stories. She never paid back the money she owes me. I've sworn to get even with her!
But -- your prayer --What about your prayer?
I didn't -- mean it.
Well, at least you're honest. But, it's quite a load carrying around all that bitterness and resentment isn't it?
Yes, but I'll feel better as soon as I get even with her. Boy, have I got some plans for her. She'll wish she had never been born.
No, you won't feel any better. You'll feel worse. Revenge isn't sweet. You know how unhappy you are -- Well, I can change that.
You can? How?
Forgive...Then, I'll forgive you; And the hate and the sin, will be Ann's problem -- not yours. You will have settled the problem as far as you are concerned.
Oh, you know, you're right. You always are. And more than I want revenge, I want to be right with You . . (sigh). All right, all right. I forgive her.
There now! Wonderful! How do you feel?
Hmmmm. Well, not bad. Not bad at all! In fact, I feel pretty great! You know, I don't think I'll go to bed uptight tonight. I haven't been getting much rest, you know.
Yeah, I know. But, you're not through with your prayer are you? Go on.
Oh, all right. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Good! Good! I'll do that. Just don't put yourself in a place where you can be tempted.
What do you mean by that?
You know what I mean.
Yeah. I know.
Okay. Go ahead. Finish your prayer.
For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.
Do you know what would bring me glory -- What would really make me happy?
No, but I'd like to know. I want to please you now. I've really made a mess of things. I want to truly follow you. I can see now how great that would be.
So, tell me . . .How do I make you happy?
YOU just did.

because I enjoyed both to the maximum. Now sitting all alone, I'm missing that blackboard, the chalk pieces, scratching on the benches, humming in boring classes, eavesdropping on my backbench mates. So many things. When will they come back. Never!

Otherwise people will call u an " OLD MONK "
And stick a " BLACK LABEL " on u.
But u must fight like " NAPOLEAN ",
Live like a "Bagpiper",
Strut around like a "Jhonny Walker",
Work like "8PM",
Think like a "Director Special",
And don't forget the cute little "Black Dog"
Then your life will be like the "Imperial Blue"
And if you do all the above it will add value to your "Signature"

Now for a bit of personal knowledge. I have no idea wat ATSC means but QAM is Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, considered to be a very bandwidth efficient technique for modulation of signals. Really good but requiring high power to transmit the signals. They provide signals wich have very low error rate of reception. Well guess it wasnt a waste doin ECE. At least im pretty good on the communication front.
Friday, August 22, 2008
Hmmm...I understand. So i'll let u no things as far as i hav read abt the above. I shud thank cnet for all these info.
Ok, lets start with the resolutions/outputs. 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p all refer to the second half (the smaller number) of the resolution, so both 1080i and 1080p would display the resolution 1,920x1,080. Now for P. vs. I. P stands for progressive and I for Interlaced. With I, the image is made up of horizontal lines, these lines are then dived by two (every other, not top and bottom) and the information for these lines is spread over two frames of the video. This saves on storage space, and makes it easier on broadcasting companies, but with decoding of the interlaced video or fast moving scenes you'll see the horizontal lines.Progressive scan on the other hand, each frame has a complete image which it displays, this more powerful hardware to display it without stutters and requires a lot more storage space, but the image is always good.
Compatibility: NTSC refers to a technological format used by the US TV broadcaster i.e. in the UK our TV is broadcast in PAL. NTSC, is fine if one is from the USA. One need not worry about the others because everything you play will be encoded in NTSC. This is also the same for anything 'recorded' in these countries e.g. if you recorded some tv at home in the US then took the vhs tape with you to some freinds or relatives in the UK or japan it would NOT display properly if at all in their VCR, and also if you brought a vcr and/or tv with you from the USA that also would not work even if you had an adaptor for the different electrical plug that the US uses.
Media Connectivity: is quite simply a word used to say the input jacks on the rear and side or front panels. Nowadays with HDTV's there’s a lot more connections to think about. There’s you old S-Video and RGB, these are fine for standard definition video. However for HD video you'll need to use, HDMI, Component, (VGA, DVI these two are PC connectors). HDMI is one large plug (much smaller than Scart though) this will provide the best in video quality allowing you to watch in full 1080p with any interference as it is digital. Component has 5 jacks, 2 for sound and 3 for the image, but as the signal is apologue you may pick up interference.And now for one other thing you may need to know.
Contrast ratio: This is quite simply how black the blacks are and how white the whites are. So the higher the ratio the better the image. 1:500 no thanks, 1:3,000 yes please.
Now for a bit of personal knowledge. I have no idea wat ATSC means but QAM is Quadrature Amplitude Modulation, considered to be a very bandwidth efficient technique for modulation of signals. Really good but requiring high power to transmit the signals. They provide signals wich have very low error rate of reception. Well guess it wasnt a waste doin ECE. At least im pretty good on the communication front.
1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and presto. The blockage will be almost instantly removed.
2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.
3. Avoid arguments with your partner about lifting the toilet seat by simply using the sink.
4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.
5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you will be afraid to cough.
7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a hammer and you will forget about the toothache.
8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules of life really are: You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
9. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
10. Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
11. If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.
12. And finally, be really nice to your family and friends; you never know when you might need them to empty your bedpan.
13. The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

- An album of special photos. An old fashioned CD(probably with your own artwork) of favorite songs, or even a really special childhood book which might pull the right chords.
- A home-made "voucher" of some kind whether it is for a specially cooked home-dinner followed by a night out at the local park, or simply one which says "I offer my services to shop, clean, babysit for you this entire weekend so you take the day off".
- Any luxury item that they would never have been able to bring themselves to indulge on-the most special chocolates, a silk scarf, an exquisite jewellery piece.
- An unusual, unexpected day out - a picnic, night at the theater, an afternoon at a real good spa, a long drive by the beach, that kind of stuff.

" The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money goes to China . If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs. If we buy a computer it will go to India . If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala . If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany . If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part."
For example, after every 10 deer there should be a lion.
Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States. I have blessed them with prosperity and money. But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension....
And here is Africa. I have given them beautiful nature. But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes.
And here is South America. I have given them lots of forests. But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would have to cut off the forests...
So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.
One of the angels asked... "God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?"
God said....... "Ahah.!..that is the crown piece of all. "INDIA", My most precious creation. It has understanding and friendly People. Sparkling streams and serene mountains. A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live. Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold.....
The angel was quite surprised:
"But god you said everything should be in balance."
God replied --
"Look at the neighbours I gave them."

Every drop of golden rain.
Every rainbow in the sky,
Every single butterfly,
Tells the fascinating news to those who dare to hope.
And the message is
God still loves the world.
A lyric that caught me the minute I heard it. It's quite simple. Talks about every single gift that nature shows us and ends saying that all this is a sign. A sign that God Loves Us. Man has always been His greatest and most precious creation. He
created Man in His own likeness. When Man erred God was so hurt but He didn't destroy man. Instead God only punished him and sent him out of God's home. But God didn't forsake Man. Nor did He stop His love for Man. He so much loved the world that he
sent His only Son to save us from our death. To give us the new life. He gave us a second chance to help us live anew. How much can we thank Him? No words are enough to sing of His graces. No words enough for His love. No words there are to thank Him.
The only little thing that ewe could do. We better do it well. We have to love the Lord God in the same way with a unblemished heart. He resides in the Holy place. let us make our hearts holy enough for Him.

The variations can be noted as below:
802.16-2004 is often called 802.16d, since that was the working party that developed the standard. It is also frequently referred to as "fixed WiMAX" since it has no support for mobility.
802.16e-2005 is an amendment to 802.16-2004 and is often referred to in shortened form as 802.16e. It introduced support for mobility, amongst other things and is therefore also frequently called "mobile WiMAX".
It has wide variety of applications contributed by its wide area coverage and high data rates. These range as follows:
*Services like POTs, Leased lines with G.703, VOIP, Ethernet can be extended.
* connecting the Wi Fi Hot Spots to the internet as back bone.
*Data bandwidth Management features like CIR, PIR & Best effort are supported.
And the places wer it has already shown its effect. Remember the tsunami in December 2004.
WiMAX access was used to assist with communications in Aceh, Indonesia, after all communication infrastructure in the area, other than Ham Radio, was destroyed, making the survivors unable to communicate with people outside the disaster area and vice versa. WiMAX provided broadband access that helped regenerate communication to and from Aceh.
There is no uniform global licensed spectrum for WiMAX, although the WiMAX Forum has published three licensed spectrum profiles: 2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz and 3.5 GHz, in an effort to decrease cost: economies of scale dictate that the more WiMAX embedded devices (such as mobile phones and WiMAX-embedded laptops) are produced, the lower the unit cost.
The disadvanage-well all coins hav 2 sides. So here goes...A commonly-held misconception is that WiMAX will deliver 70 Mbit/s over 50 kilometers. In reality, WiMAX can do one or the other — operating over maximum range (50 km) increases bit error rate and thus must use a lower bitrate. Lowering the range allows a device to operate at higher bitrates.
So as it can be seen. WiMAX is an emerging technology tho not much in deployment in India will soon cover the entire globe and be an imp part of our mobile systems in a way much similar to Wi-fi now.

• Set aside enough time and make sure you won’t be interrupted - turn off your
mobile at the least.
• Rehearse your opening line but get to the point.
• Consider how you frame the news: “For a man of your age, apart from high blood
pressure you’re in good shape ” sounds better than, “You have hypertension,
which can lead to heart disease.”
• Know your facts and be prepared for questions.
• Show you care but don’t mind-read or say how uncomfortable you feel. Focus on
Lift weights standing up: This forces your core (abdominal and back) muscles to work. A strong core helps you lift heavy loads without hurting your back.
Do real-life cardio: Set up a course with cones. Run to the first cone as fast as you can. Side-shuffle to the second. Walk backwards to the third. Dash to the fourth. The payoff: You’ll be able o dash after a zig-zagging toddler.
Rotate: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent. Hold a weight out in front of you and twist side to side, for better reaching and bending.

Walking on a flat trial for an hour, a 65-kilo person can burn as much as 300 calories. Pick a more challenging spot with hills, and you burn 445 calories or more. Hiking also builds flexibility and strength. Going uphill firms the calves and backside muscles, while downhill jaunts tone up the quadriceps.

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects. When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: "I don't believe that God exists."
"Why do you say that?" asked the customer.
"Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn't exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can't imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things."
The customer thought for a moment, but didn't respond because he didn't want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop. Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: "You know what? Barbers do not exist."
"How can you say that?" asked the surprised barber. "I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!"
"No!" the customer exclaimed. "Barbers don't exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside."
"Ah, but barbers DO exist! That's what happens when people do not come to me."
"Exactly!" affirmed the customer. "That's the point! God, too, DOES exist! That's what happens when people do not go to Him and don't look to Him for help. That's why there's so much pain and suffering in the world."
BE BLESSED & BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS !!!!!!!

Putting aside the moral and financial issues revolving around giving computers to children, selecting a laptop computer for anyone of any age can be a difficult task. You can see laptops advertised for as little as $400 (after rebates) to as high as $3000 and more. It is tempting to take the cheap approach, thinking that if they ruin it in a few weeks then you are out only $400 vs. $2000. However, as soon as you mention the word GAMING, it can change the entire scenario depending on the type of game. It would be similar to walking into a car dealer and asking for a car that gets ok mileage, can keep up with traffic on the expressway, is easy to park and primarily used to commute to work… and then adding, I would also like to take it to the track on weekends and race it. The big question is what kind of GAMING. There is one level of gaming like Solitaire, Scrabble and Free Cell which any computer can play and then there are the high end games such as Counter Strike, F.E.A.R and Quake, which can require higher end computers with faster processors, more memory and better video cards. If your children start getting into the higher end games, the type of computer you choose can make a big difference in what they can do and how fast they can do it. Playing some of these games is one thing but actually competing is another.
If you start with the basic laptop for about $500 you typically get a 14.1 or 15.4” screen, low end processor (Celeron or equiv), 1 gig of ram, mid to small mechanical hard drive, Windows Vista Basic and a total weight of about 6 lbs. Now that you have this basic $500 laptop the price starts to increase as you start changing the size and quality of the screen, the overall weight, battery life and the individual components such as Processor, Memory, Video Processor and hard drive. You generally pay extra for either smaller lighter weight models as well as larger screen models. So go ahead and select the best, you will see that laptops are the best investment as of date.
1 litre warm water
1/4 teaspoon household bleach
11/2 tablespoons sugar
10 millilitres of vinegar or squeeze a lemon
Dissolve the sugar in the warm water, than add bleach and vinegar. Chill the mixture before use. The sugar serves as an energy source, the vinegar as an acidifier to lower the pH of the water and prevent blockages in the stem, and the bleach works as a bactericide to destroy microscopic bacteria.

1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found
2 hard at work at his desk. He works independently, without
3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never
4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and always
5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be
10 classed as an asset employee, the type which cannot be
11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
13 executed as soon as possible.
Addendum: That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered lines!

Once I asked my friend, "What is the secret behind your happy married life?"
He replied, "You should share responsibilities with due love and respect to each other. Then absolutely there will be no problems."
I dint understand how and so i asked him to explain. And this was his reply, "In my house, I take decisions on bigger issues where as my wife decides on smaller issues. We do not interfere in each other's decisions."
Still not convinced, I asked him for some examples.
He said," Smaller issues like which car we should buy, how much amount to save, when to visit home town, which Sofa, air conditioner, refrigerator to buy, monthly expenses,what to eat,when to cook,whether to keep a maid or not etc are decided by my wife. I just agree to it"
I was curious."Then what is your role?"
To that he replied," My decisions are only for very big issues. Like whether America is justified in attacking Iran, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe, whether to widen African economy,should L.K.Advani lead the NDA,Weather Elections should be held in Karnataka during may or november, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc etc. "Do you know one thing? My wife NEVER objects to any of these decisions".
Over the weekend, I filled up my car's fuel tank, and I thought fuel has become really expensive after the recent price hike.But then I compared it with other common liquids and did some quickcalculations, and I felt a little better.
To know why, see the results below - you'll be surprised at how outrageous some other prices are !
Diesel (regular) in Mumbai : Rs.36.08 per litre
Petrol (speed) in Mumbai : Rs.52 per litre
Coca Cola 330 ml can : Rs.20 = Rs.61 per litre
Dettol antiseptic 100 ml Rs.20 = Rs.200 per litre
Radiator coolant 500 ml Rs.160 = Rs.320 per litre
Pantene conditioner 400 ml Rs.165 = Rs.413 per litre
Medicinal mouthwash like Listerine 100 ml Rs.45 = Rs. 450 per litre
Red Bull 150 ml can : Rs.75 = Rs.500 per litre
Corex cough syrup 100 ml Rs.57 = Rs. 570 per litre
Evian water 500 ml Rs. 330 = Rs. 660 per litre Rs. 500 for a litre of WATER???!!!
And the buyers don't even know thesource (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
Kores whiteout 15 ml Rs. 15 = Rs. 1000 per litre
Old Spice after shave lotion 100 ml Rs. 175 = Rs. 1750 per litre
Pure almond oil 25 ml Rs. 68 = Rs. 2720 per litre
And this is the REAL KICKER...
HP deskjet colour ink cartridge 21 ml Rs.1900 = Rs. 90476 per litre!!!
Now you know why computer printers are so cheap ? So they have you hookedfor the ink !
So, the next time you're at the pump, don't curse our honorable Petroleum Minister - just be glad your car doesn't run on cough syrup, after shave,coffee, or God forbid, printer ink !

Researchers at the University of Florida asked subjects to exercise on a static bike underwater for 45 minutes, first in water at 20degrees C, then in water at 33 degrees C. They also spent 45 minutes just resting. After each session they spent an hour in a room full of food, without being told that their calorie intake would be monitored.
After exercising in cold water the subjects ate 44% more calories than after the warm-water exercise and 41% more than after just resting. It seems that body temperatures affects post-appetite, which may explain a previous study that found women who swam lost less weight than those who ran or cycled.

John Grisham, was born in
In 1984 at the
The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared. That second book, The Firm, became the 7th bestselling novel of 1991. Grisham then went on to produce at least one work a year, most of them widely popular bestsellers. He is the only person to author a number-one bestselling novel of the year for seven consecutive years (1994–2000).
Grisham returned briefly to the courtroom in 1996 after a five-year hiatus. According to his official website, he "was honoring a commitment he made before he had retired from the law...representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars...Grisham successfully argued his clients' case, earning them a jury award of $683,500" Another tie to the legal community that he continues to hold is his seat on the Board of Directors for the Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent through DNA testing after they have been convicted.
He has become very famous in

The Indian man said to the American, You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven't even met once. We call this arranged marriage. I don't want to marry a woman whom I don't love...I told them that openly and now have a hell lot of family problems."
The American said, "Talking about love Marriages...I'll tell you my story. I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years.
"After a couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-daughter and so my father became my son-in-law and I became my father's father-in-law.
My daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.
More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father's brother and so he my uncle. Situations turned worse when my father had a son.
Now my father's son i.e. my brother is my grandson.
Ultimately, I have become my own grand father and I am my own grandson.
And you say you have family problems..Gimme a break!!"
