WHY GOD ALLOWS PAIN........

This is one of the best explanations of why God allows pain and suffering that I have seen...
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 !!!!!!!

Laptop recommendation for children

With every single person rushing on to become computer savvy, it is a simple problem faced by all parents who see heir kids pestering them to get a laptop all for their own. When any parent finally decides on giving their kids one they are suck with which one is more efficient. And for help they end up asking people who in turn question them on why they want to purchase laptops for kids so young. Sure, it might sound like a large investment for their age, but mobility is the driver behind the decision especially when people travel a lot.

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.

Make flowers last longer

Keep your flowers fresh and extend your pleasure for longer with this homemade recipe. You will need:
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.

The Perfect employee !!

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!

The Hip-Hop violinist

Miri Ben-Ari, 29, grew up near Tel Aviv and paid for her music school fees by winning violin competitions. At age 13 she took a master class with Isaac Stern, the American violin virtuso. After her mandatory two years in the Israeli army, she went to New York and enrolled in Jazz program at New School. She played gigs to survive there, which often meant she skipped classes. After 2 semesters she withdrew. “I failed music,” she says “that really hurt.” Her breakthrough came at a radio station party in 2001. She knew nothing about hip-hop but he crowd went wild. Months later, she appeared as “the Hip-Hop violinist” at Carnegie Hall. She released her first major album in 2005; a follow up is due this year. Now a US citizen, Ben-Ari has not forgotten her roots. She has created a foundation to educate teens about the Nazi genocide. Still, she’s happiest expressing herself with a well-rosined bow: “My violin is my voice.”

Secret of a Happy Married Life

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".

Thank goodness vehicles run on petrol !!

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 !

Wanna lose weight?-Don't swim !!

Swimming is often regarded as a good all-round exercise, and indeed it is useful for some people because the support of the water reduces the impact on joints. But exercise on cold water may not be ideal if you’re trying to lose weight.

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.

Favourite authors-John Grisham


John Grisham, was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, to Southern Baptist parents in a lower middle class family as we call it now. His father was as a construction worker who chipped in as a cotton farmer while his mother was a homemaker. In 1967 the family settled in the town of Southaven, Mississippi, where Grisham graduated High School. by his mother, the young Grisham was an avid reader, and was especially influenced by the work of John Steinbeck whose clarity he admired. In 1977 Grisham received a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Mcquades children services. While studying at MSU, the author began to keep a journal, a practice that would later assist in his creative endeavors. He earned his degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law in 1981. During law school Grisham switched interests from tax law to criminal and general civil litigation. Upon graduation he entered a small-town general law practice for nearly a decade in Southaven, where he focused on criminal law and civil law representing a broad spectrum of clients. As a young attorney he spent much of his time in court proceedings.
In 1984 at the De Soto County courthouse in Hernando, Grisham witnessed the harrowing testimony of a 12-year-old rape victim. According to Grisham's official website, Grisham used his spare time to begin work on his first novel, which explored what would have happened if the girl's father had murdered her assailants. He spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers, the manuscript was eventually bought by Wynwood Press, who gave it a modest 5,000-copy printing and published it in June 1988.
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 Hollywood circuits with a number of his books being made into movies that have proved to be blockbusters at the Box Office. Its not just the books that seemed to be loved by all but also the characterization with almost all his novels set up in the courtroom set up.

A list of his Bestsellers can be given as follows:

· A Time to Kill

· The Firm

· The Pelican Brief

· The Client

· The Chamber

· The Rainmaker

· The Runaway Jury

· The Partner

· The Street Lawyer

· The Testament

· The Brethren

· The Summons

· The King of Torts

· The Last Juror

· The Broker

· The Appeal

Family Problems

Two men, one American and an Indian were sitting in a bar drinking shot after shot.

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!!"

Money Rules !!

It’s so easy to say that we shouldn’t be money-minded. That money is not everything in the world. Money can buy ‘this’ but not ‘that’ and ‘that’ ends up being more important. But all said and done. There’s no denying the fact that money still rules the world. Every step we take right from when we are born till our death requires money. Money can buy houses but not homes. How many times have we heard this? But then to make a home we first need a house. And here is where money steps in. Everyone wants to be famous for good things and they try their best to show out that money holds no value for them. But its just a miniscule amount of people in this world who can actually give up money and luxury for something. And anyhow my question is why we have to. When we are given the choice of leading a good life and also not feeling for it why does everyone want to go the hard way. Why do you want to shun money when its not necessary. So throw away the goody-goody face and come out to be yourself. The world can’t live without money. Now that’s a fact. Learn to live with it. And please stop blaming money for everything. Even if in a small amount it’s the reason your alive today.

Dog Talk

It’s a common problem seen among all dog owners. Your dog listens well when you say “sit”, “down” and “stay”, but he rarely comes when called, especially if he’s not on a leash. Why is “come” so hard to train? How come he understands the rest but not this?
Teaching your dog to come to you every time is a skill to train like any other. The best way to do this is to start up close. Three times a day, for about two weeks, stand one metre away from your dog and say “Princess, come.” Use a cheerful voice and give her a treat when she gets to you. Make sure you’re close enough that she’s guaranteed to be successful every time. Gradually add distance and distractions. Your call should always mean treats, fun and attention.

Bear your Cross

Whatever your cross, whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain ....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall,
But God's always ready,To answer your call ...
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
A word from His lips, can calm every fear ...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, in dawn's early light ...
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
To give you His grace,and send you His love...
Whatever your cross,whatever your pain,
"God always sends rainbows .... after the rain ... "

To get out of difficulty, one must usually go through it !

Loony Lawsuits

The squeamish should not watch a reality TV show called Fear Factor. Now that’s a fact. With contestants eating worms and fighting crocodiles, it’s best for the faint-hearted to stick to Cartoon Network. Austin Aitken is one such couch potato. And as with consideration to how much his mind could handle he should have stayed on to CN. But then that was not to be and that night in 2005 he tuned into the wrong channel, at the wrong hour and got caught with an episode that was so disgusting, it made him ill. His blood pressure rose and he grew dizzy, causing him to bang his head against the doorway as he fled the room. A $2.5 million payout from the NBC television network will put him on the road to recovery. Or so he thought.

The final verdict: The judge ruled that it was for situations like these that the remote was invented and threw the case off the court.

Bring Home A New Member

Have you decided to bring home a new pet? Here are a few things you need to keep in mind that will help you around:

** Get your puppy a crate for sleep, travel and housebreaking.
** Choose a vet immediately. Ask friends for recommendation.
** Bring a dog to obedience class right away.
** introduce him to lots of people and animals early on. Get him used to sounds (vacuum cleaners) and experiences (car rides).
** Adopt 2 cats-if you can. They do well with a friend.
** If a kitty circles as if she’s looking for something, or races to a corner of the room, show her the litter box. She’ll learn where it is fast.
** Keep an eye on kids and other pets until kitty adjusts.

Remembering A Name !

Names are sometimes so difficult to keep in mind. And they’re not the more hard or long ones. They sometimes are the easy ones. But they land us in situations where we’d rather not find ourselves. But this is not a defect which cannot be rectified. In fact the memory can be trainable in such cases by following some simple rules:

•The first thing is to listen to the name. We’re often so pre-occupied that we don’t actually hear it.

•After hearing the name, spell it in your head, repeating it a few times to ingrain it on your brain.

•If you hear an unusual name, inquire about its origins. The extra info will help make it more unforgettable.

Repeat the name during your conversation.

Change the name to something that sounds like it but conjures up an image. The sillier it is, the better it works.

Guy's point of view

Well here's something i got thru mail andn enjoyed reading. Just thot u'll feel the same. So here we get into what runs in the male mind. We always hear “the rules" from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. Finally, from the guys, for the guys.

Please note. These are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

1. Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want.

Let us be clear on this one:

->Subtle hints do not work!

->Strong hints do not work!

->Obvious hints do not work!

Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a Problem. See a doctor.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you won't dress like the Victoria 's Secret girls, don't Expect us to act like soap opera guys.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this.

The Money Pit

For 210 years, there’s been talk of buried treasure off Oak Island in north-eastern Canada. According to legend, a trio of local boys found a depression under an oak tree there. Although they failed to unearth treasure, others say they have come across links of a gold chain, tiny pieces of parchment and a stone tablet inscribed with hieroglyphics which read “12 metres below, two million pounds are buried”. In 1971, a video camera was lowered down a shaft, capturing images that resembled a severed hand and portions of a wooden trunk. At about 27 metres, the shaft floods with water, leading some to believe that elaborate tunnels have been built to keep the treasure safe. That hasn’t stopped people from looking: six have died in the process. What are they looking for? Theories include Marie Antoinette’s jewels, the secret stash of Sir Francis Drake or Captain Kidd’s treasure. The mystery lives on.

To a more healthy Life-Yoga

You may have thought Yoga was strictly for mystics. Well, for all of those, a new research has shown that 45 to 55 year olds who regularly practice it are better able to fight “middle aged spread,” while those already overweight are more likely to slim down.
Interestingly few people practice yoga vigorously enough to burn many calories doing it. The study speculates that yoga instead makes you more “body aware” and perhaps teaches you discipline that you can apply in other areas of life. Here are a few tips you need to consider when starting out in your mystic journey:
-> Find an edge where you are challenged but not overwhelmed.

-> Pay more attention to the internal experience than outer performance.

->Try to become more aware of even your small movements.

->Note what you are saying to yourself as you practice.

Work Harder, Not Longer

When work starts to get on top of you it can be tempting to stay late to finish it. But it isn’t good for you. According to researchers, you’re 61% more likely to suffer work-related injuries than people who do only their contracted hours. Here are some strategies for getting it all done without the overtime, from 'How To Do Just About Everything In The Office' :
->Communicate effectively to ensure the job is done properly first time round.
->Finish one task before you go on to the next.
->Stop thinking that it takes too long to delegate responsibility-it will pay off over time, especially if the task needs to be done many times.
->Recognize when you have more energy and do the tougher jobs then.
-> A short walk away from the office at lunchtime will improve productivity.
->Avoid very tight schedules: factor in time for unexpected delays.

Watering your skin

During eight glasses of water a day is healthy for your complexion, but can applying water directly to the skin have the same effect? The latest trend combines the hydrating powers of H2O with moisturizer to create a product that rejuvenates your skin. The natural aging process and environmental elements contribute to the depletion of water in our skin cells. A moisturizer with water in it adds moisture to the skin for hydration. Keeping your skin hydrated allows you to avoid fine wrinkles and the discomfort that can occur when the skin becomes dry and inflamed.

Are you a Workaholic?

Do you eat, sleep and breathe work, weekends and holidays included? Do you find anything besides work a waste of time? If yes, then you’re a workaholic, and the sooner you realize it the better.

Love Vs Addiction: Don’t confuse a genuine love of work with an addiction. Work addicts suffer withdrawal symptoms if detached form their job and find that work alone defines and controls their self-esteem, public image and well-being.

Family Vs Work: Workaholics are detached form the emotional concerns of the rest of the family. While critical of every detail of housekeeping, they are reluctant to help with the chores, because it takes them away from their ‘real’ work.

Health Hazards: These sincere people are often stressed out plodders, perpetually swamped in paperwork and routine chores. They are sitting candidates for heart disease and other physical and psychological problems.

The Cure: If your organization forces you to be a workaholic, get out while you can. Return to the hobbies of your youth. Renew old friendships and make new ones.

Be realistic: If you equate relaxation with idleness, a drastic change of pace will be hard at first. Ease yourself into a new lifestyle. Slow down everything. Take up something that doesn’t immediately seem productive like meditating and bird watching.

Home Remedies

Cool, dry autumn weather can wreak havoc on your skin and make-up-and often there just isn’t time to run to the medical store. Here are a fewquick fixs which provide solutions within arm’s reach.

Dark circles under the eyes?---Use concealer with a suitable pink, peachy or yellow undertone to neutralize the blue and green in circles- ad avoid plum, purple and red shades of shadow.

Pimples?---Rub on a paste of baking soda and water at night to dry it out by morning.

Dull complexion?---Wet a washcloth with warm water and squeeze lime juice. Press onto your face for a few minutes; repeat three times to make your skin glow.

Chapped lips?---To exfoliate lips apply petroleum jelly or a face scrub to a soft toothbrush and gently rub on lips. Apply lip balm.

Personalize your Bedding

How does it feel to sleep on a bedspread filled with sceneries you took with your favorite camera? Or to hug a pillow that has your loved one smiling back at you? It’s a lovely feeling every time you enter your bedroom and see your personalized bedding inviting you to join in for a quiet time with the ones you hold closest to your heart. When all the designs available in the market today are too similar or not suiting your tastes, here’s one which you can have to adorn your personal room or to gift to someone reminding them of times spent together. And since the pictures are permanently dyed in you can be sure they won’t fade like most other blankets you have encountered before. All you need to do is make a list of your favorite pictures and choose the layout in which you want your photo blanket to be set up. Your gift will be unique since it holds not only your touch but also your memories alongside. And that’s just one reason why it will be treasured forever.

The Gift of Love

It seems when a relationship is new, that’s when you’ll receive the most presents. Apparently it all comes down to evolution: men and women give gifts based on their reproductive needs. Men, for example, tend to give gifts for tactical purposes in the earlier part of the relationship because it serves a particular function-to signal generosity, to show they have resources, or to make known their intention for o long-term relationship. Women, on the other hand, tend to give gifts as expressions of love-not just at the beginning of a relationship, but throughout.

Design Your Cables

Wiring and cabling are among the first priorities that come up when you design your house. All of us love to use cables which suit the d├ęcor of our house and don’t hang around in unwanted places. We always finish our entire furnishing and then find that cables needed for supplementary wiring needs obstruct the original structure we had planned for. However, in many cases, it is difficult to get cables which satisfy all our needs. In such cases wouldn’t it be great to design our own cables and sockets into shapes and sizes we love? That is exactly what Custom Cable provides us with. A set of questions answered, a row of models considered, our parameters set down and we have cables in designs we want them to be. Custom Cable is a novel way to give us the freedom to obtain cables which meet our personal requirements. No more extra, unwanted cables hanging around your house, spoiling its aesthetics. It’s all fit in and perfected, transforming your home back to that beauty you’ve always dreamed it to be.

Acupuncture-Medicine or Magic?

Is this just a load of mumbo-jumbo? Apparently not! There is growing evidence that it can help alleviate painful symptoms. Recent research has shown that among sufferers of headache not only did acupuncture bring down the recurrence of the attacks by half, it worked with minimal treatment (needles were placed only superficially on the skin). The effects lasted for some months after the eight-week course, but gradually wore off. This is in keeping with other research where acupuncture has alleviated pain from osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia.

Socializing Online

Socializing once upon a time meant meting new people at parties or get-togethers and get close to them, have a nice time with them around. But now with the Net catching up and giving whole new definitions to everything we have known so far even social gatherings are becoming a thing of the past. The scores of social networking sites that have come up has led to people being glued to the Internet day and night and even making new friends everyday. They come across people separated across continents whom they view through the virtual world. And what do they see? Whatever the person on the other end wants them to see. It’s so easy to say “It’s fun to meet new people, to know things from scratch and get together.” But in reality what you see is not the truth. The scariest part of finding company online is: nothing is what it seems to be. Well isn’t that what virtual actually means. And still even after years of hearing stories many don’t learn. They make mistakes again and find themselves in trouble. It’s all nice to have some fun, to hang out, meet new people, freak around. But make sure you know your limits. Know where to put the full stop.

Get More Sleep

In a less busy world we would grab all the extra shut-eye that we could. But it could have more effect on your health than you think. So here are 5 surprising reasons why you should catch up on more sleep.

It could make you thinner. It is seen that the less sleep you get, the higher is the body mass index.

It could boost your memory. Sleep plays a key role in making new memories stick in the brain. Research showed that people who were shown a complex finger movement like a paino scale recalled them better after 12 hours’ sleep than 12 hours’ wakefulness.

It can fight colds, ulcers, even cancer. Good sleep boosts the immune system. A study of elderly people suffering depression showed that those with disturbed sleep had fewer disease fighting cells in their blood.

It can slow down aging. Persistent sleep debt has been shown to affect carbohydrate metabolism and hormone function in a way that may increase the severity of age related chronic disorders.

It could keep you on the straight and narrow. If you’re a child that is. The depression and low self-esteem often associated with just being a teenager actually correlates with sleep shortage. And young kids who sleep poorly are more likely to take to drink and drugs in adolescence.
