Pillow with Tissues - Useful when Sick

Bangladesh blocks Facebook

Bangladesh has blocked social networking site Facebook for posting caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed and "obnoxious" images of the Muslim-majority country's leaders, an official said Sunday.

The move was ordered after the website "hurt religious sentiments of the majority Muslim population of the country" by publishing the Muhammad cartoons, BTRC chairman Hasan Mahmud Delwar said charge.

"Some links to sites containing images of our leaders are impatient, including the father of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman nation, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and current opposition leader," he said.

Facebook rival MillatFacebook launched in Pakistan

Six young IT experts in the city of Lahore have set up MillatFacebook – using the Urdu word for nation – which they hope will become a hub for Muslims around the world.

Omar Zaheer Meer, one of the founders, said the site was launched on Wednesday and had already attracted 8,000 users.

The aim, he said, was to register their disapproval of the images of the Muslim prophet and to offer an alternative to a site that has also been criticized for its lax and confusing privacy controls.

"We are saying that we are technologically independent and that you can't make money from us and then not respect our views," he said.

Thousands of people in Pakistan have demonstrated against the US-based social networking site for hosting a contest calling for cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

The country's courts ordered internet service providers to block the social networking site last week, along with others that featured sacrilegious content. YouTube, Wikipedia and hundreds of other pages have all been subject to temporary bans.

Muslims argue that any representation of the Prophet Mohammed is blasphemous.

The Facebook ban has led Pakistanis to find alternative ways of keeping in touch with friends.

Many have joined other social networking sites - Rehman Malik, the country's interior minister, has even signed up to twitter. Others have found proxy servers that get around censors and allow access to Facebook

MillatFacebook's designers hope the site will attract people of all faith, and admit it shares some of the same features as its better-known template. In fact, from the blue navigation panel to the map of the world, the login page bears a remarkable similarity to Facebook.

"Millatfacebook is Pakistan's very own, first social networking site. A site for Muslims by Muslims where sweet people of other religions are also welcome," the website tells people interested in signing up.

However, tech reviews in the local media have criticized its homemade feel.

The Express Tribune said: "The quality of user experience is so abysmal that it does not merit the humble title, 'Facebook clone.'"

But its technological shortcomings do not seem to have deterred web-literate young Pakistanis.

Rana Adeel, a 21-year-old law student in Lahore, signed up after receiving invitations via SMS and email from friends.

"In two days, I got more than seven friends. If the Facebook ban is lifted, I'll keep networking on both," she said.

Shoeshine Boy Aces IIT Entrance Exam

He helps his father, a cobbler, mend shoes in his spare time while his mother stitches rags to support the family, but financial hardships have not stopped Abhishek Kumar Bhartiya from coming out with flying colours in the IIT entrance exam.

Abhishek, who secured 154th rank in the SC category of IIT entrance test, now wants to propel his dreams by pursuing aerospace engineering at IIT-Kanpur here.

His father earns Rs 60-70 daily and mother stitches old clothings to earn money. But "this has never held them back from facilitating our education," Abhishek says, dedicating his success to his parents.

Abhishek, who also tries to pitch in by polishing shoes at his father's shop, has three young brothers and the family of six lives in a one room accommodation with no electricity.

"We have just one small room where six of us live and that too without electricity. So, he used to study under the lantern for five-six hours in the night," says his father Rajendra Prasad.

The family could not even think of providing coaching to Abhishek. "But by God's grace, a teacher of a coaching insitute helped him out," he says.

But even in the time of happiness, poverty haunts the family. "I am worried about the fees. From where can I manage the amount? This question is troubling my mind but even if I have to sell myself, I am ready for it," Prasad said.

With relatives flocking their house after hearing the news, the joyous father says he has not been able to open his shop since the IIT-JEE result came out yesterday.

"We are very happy. He is the first person in our family to be selected to the IITs," says his uncle Manoj Kumar.

Abhishek says he wants to support his siblings' education and help them to get into prestigious institutes.

Frankfurt Motor Show:2010 CITROEN C3 Unveiled

Citroen has decided to officially reveal the new Citroen C3 months before its scheduled Frankfurt Motor Show debut. The new generation C3 is far more aggressive than previous model which was literally an egg! It is pretty funky as all Citroens are, but because of some nice detailing it looks very elegant, which is a rare treat in the world of small hatchbacks.

As previously mentioned, it appears as though early rumors of a full panoramic glass roof were unfounded. The "Zenith" windshield does in fact extend over the front occupants' heads, but only just to the b-pillar. The company believes occupants will find the Zenith Windscreen very comfortable, as progressive glass helps keep harsh rays out of the cabin. Citroen says they worked hard to guarantee that the car would not have an increase in road noise due to the glass extension. A thin strip of chrome at the top end of the windscreen matches chrome lines seen around the honeycomb grille, and on the side mirrors, door handles, door panels, and trunk.

The old C3 has always been in the shadow of names like Peugeot 207 and Renault Clio and even it’s smaller brother the C2, but the new model seems to have everything it needs to change this. It appeals to both male and female customers. In front, the shape of headlights and that amazing grille are all very aggressive and sporty, while at the back those Boomerang shaped tail lights give it a nice cutesy look. You also get a lot of chrome straps here and there which again, is a very nice touch.

The car's front end is completely redesigned, with a sportier front bumper featuring integrated fog lights. The new rear light cluster is designed rather well, and is a nice step up from the current C3 model. We are still not certain if the entire rear bumper will be painted in the same exterior color of the car, or if the lower section will remain black for all vehicles. Either way, the bumper's new shape is a nice touch.

But the most striking feature of the 2010 Citroen C3 should be the new panoramic windshield called Zenith which is an optional extra. This innovation was first seen in the previous generation of the Opel Astra some years ago. New C3 is also improved inside the cabin, where its extra 8cm length than the old model translates into greater comfort for passengers and bigger luggage space. It is also very well equipped, you even get a full navigation system with RD4 radio and MP3 audio system and USB ports.


In these first photos of the car's interior, we see a very clean design utilizing a two-tone thermo-coated dash and center console that matches the contrasting seats and headliner. The customer can customize the dash a bit by choosing from either a satin grey or glossy brushed aluminum strip mixed with chrome detailing. It appears a CD-radio, climate control, and sat-nav/infotainment unit are the features built into the console. The HiFi system gives the driver a few extra options, thanks to the USB port, iPod jack, and BlueTooth. The covered, recessed gauges feature a pleasing mix of analogue and digital display.

As for the engines, at launch it’ll be available with a 1.6 liter HDi diesel developing 90 hp and CO2 level of only 99g/km, a 1.4 liter VTi petrol with 95 hp, a 1.6 liter petrol with 120 hp and at the top of the range a 110 hp HDi engine. Form 2011 a new range of petrol and diesel engines, plus the Start/Stop system will be added.

The new Citroen C3 will be built in France at the company's facilities in Aulnay and Poissy. The car will be available beginning in November.

Microsoft Office 2010 Launched:A Much Deeper User Experience

Microsoft officially launched Office 2010, a remarkably attractive upgrade to Office 2007 that will please power users with its dazzling array of new features that refines Office 2007's somewhat confusing interface, adds cloud computing elements for road warriors, and offers a much deeper user-experience.





Microsoft Office 2010's price starts at $99 (Office Professional Academic) and tops off at $499 (Office Professional), so investing in the suite should be done with some consideration. Although Office 2010 offers many enhancements to usability (such as a 64-bit version that supports massive Excel spreadsheets, and multi-threading for faster open and closing), this might not be enough of an improvement for those who are already happy with Office 2007. In fact, Google has suggested that users forgo upgrading to Office 2010 and take a look at Google Docs instead. We analyzed the features of both Google Apps for Business and Microsoft Office 2010 to help you decide which is best for your business.

REVIEWS:

Microsoft has put the final touches on Office 2010, and corporate customers can either buy it via resellers or download a 60-day free trial (via TechNet) as of May 12 (the boxed, retail versions hit shelves in June). As with many revisions of popular applications, one vital question must be asked: Do you need the new version? If you're a home or small-business user of Office 2007 ($399.95 direct, ), the answer is: probably not. Our Office 2010 review shows that the latest version packs in enough new conveniences and performance tweaks that you'll probably at least want Office 2010—something that hasn't been true of every Office upgrade.
Three categories of users should regard Office 2010 as an essential upgrade: anyone who creates graphically rich documents and presentations; anyone who buys software for a whole corporation (especially if that business relies on collaboration and sharing tools); and anyone in need of the new 64-bit compatibility which enables users to create worksheets even more humongous than 32-bit Excel's 2GB limit.
PRICING:
For the first time, Microsoft doesn't offer upgrade pricing on any Office edition; you'll need to buy either a full copy or a "Product Key Card" which gives an activation key (no DVD or packaging) used to unlock a trial version of Office 2010. Product Key Cards have street prices typically about two-thirds the price of the boxed versions. That's not to say there are no free upgrades; if you bought Office 2007 on or after March 5, 2010, you qualify for a free upgrade to Office 2010.
Of course, you don't have to pay at all for Office-like functionality. Open-source darling OpenOffice.org works pretty much like Office 2010, and it's free. Sadly, however, it's got a clunky interface and generally lacks the polish of the last couple revisions of Microsoft Office. If you're not a power user who does tons of formatting of word docs and don't tend to put a serious strain on Excel, you might consider Google Docs, which is free for personal use and still pretty cheap for business. Of course, free is a relative term; some businesses might find that the process of making the switch can be costly in terms of disruptions of workflow during the transfer. And then there's the issue of keeping your documents in the cloud, which isn't for everyone.
Enhanced Interface:
Unlike Office 2007, which introduced a brand-new Ribbon interface that proved controversial among consumers, 2010 lacks a steep learning curve. By now, users who took the 2007 plunge feel at home with the Ribbon. Office 2010 improves on the Ribbon by adding an option to create custom tabs that contain only the tools you use most often. It's still not perfect, because Microsoft only lets you choose from a small set of built-in icons for commands that you add to the ribbon—ancient pre-Ribbon versions of Office let you choose your own icons when you added commands to a toolbar. 
In Office 2007, few users discovered they could hide the ribbon by clicking in it, or pressing Ctrl-F1. The Office 2010 ribbon sports an arrow icon that reminds you to click on it to turn the ribbon on or off. As in the 2007 version, if you tap the Alt key in 2010, the Ribbon displays little boxed letters you can type to perform tasks entirely from the keyboard.Some features, however, such as paragraph styles, still require too much mousing.

Nail watch...Unbelievable!!!!

What's that on your thumb? Nail-art? Nope its showing time. Yes, anything that shows time is called a watch. Agreed, a watch is never seen on a thumb but times have changed thanks to Timex. Timex, in collaboration with Core77, held a global design competition called 2154: the future of time design. So what you are seeing here is the TX54 concept.



          A little about this nail watch:
It is a disposable clock and calender that can be worn on the user's thumbnail.
The nail clock makes seeing in the dark as easy as pressing down on the end of your thumbnail.
Wonder how much this concept will sell. Its stylish no doubt, but with such sassy, classy and amazing wrist watches around, dunno if this will survive the competition. Surprisingly, this was the runner up!

Modest Keys To Loose Weight



Sensible weight-loss programmes have modest goals but the dramatic weight loss depicted in television shows is unrealistic.
Lauve Metcalfe, associate director of special projects for the Center for Physical Activity and Nutrition, University of Arizona, says sensible weight-loss programmes are rooted in self-esteem and positive body image.
Metcalfe identifies three areas essential to successful weight management: appetite - how you choose, cook and enjoy food; activity - how you move and engage in physical activity; attitude - how you deal with issues of self-esteem and barriers.

Metcalfe outlines 11 skills for developing a healthy body image and self-esteem:
Skill 1 - Honour your personal story: Past events and experiences 'shape' one's perception of body image. Acknowledge your personal story and become more conscious of what choices you can control to improve the quality of your life.
Skill 2 - Accept yourself the way you are: Develop acceptance of your body image in the present form. Self-acceptance allows you to channel your energies into modifying behaviour, rather than struggling with negative thinking.
Skill 3 - Create a positive mental outlook: The attitude that you bring into a situation greatly determines the outcome. Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you are probably right.
Skill 4 - Practice positive self-talk skills: Positive self-talk messages will reinforce the qualities, skills and attributes within you, affect your unconscious mind and have a major effect on the way you view yourself.
Skill 5 - Guide away from comparisons: Beauty is a multi-dimensional combination of a variety of aspects of an individual that is in a constant state of change. Acknowledge your personal expressions of beauty that make you unique.
Skill 6 - Build your self-reliance: Each time you challenge yourself and attempt a task or skill that is outside of your comfort zone, you will experience a stronger degree of confidence in your abilities.
Skill 7 - Lighten up and live in the now: To fully enjoy life, stay in the present and experience life from moment to moment. Create a balanced perspective on life by looking to the future with anticipation, respecting the past for insight, and most important -living in the now.
Skill 8 - Reward yourself in healthy ways: Create rewards and positive incentives to keep you on track with your body image program. Develop daily, weekly and monthly incentives that recognize the effort you are putting into your personal wellness programme.
Skill 9 - Give yourself praise: Acknowledge the positive steps you make in taking care of yourself. Be open to the praise of others and regularly give and receive compliments.
Skill 10 - Develop coping skills to deal with setbacks: There are moments in all our lives that are difficult to deal with emotionally. By creating rest periods and occasional breaks in your program you will allow yourself time to be a 'human being' versus a 'human doing.'
Skill 11 - Be connected: Many people can help you stay on track with a healthy lifestyle. Value the role that supportive friends and relatives play in your life. Take time out on a regular basis to be in touch with nature and the environment, said an American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM) release.
These findings were presented at the ACSM 14th annual health and fitness summit.

Some Useful Hair And Skin Tips For Men

Here's a hair and make-up guide exclusively for men. 
Vanity Secrets Hair: If you have long hair, pull it back and tuck it neatly behind the ears - tie a knot at the back to keep it from getting sweaty and sticky and falling all over your neck. 
Headgear: During the day, wear a casual or sports (cotton) cap or a hat - not just because headgear is a strong trend this summer, but also because it protects you from the sun. Place the cap / hat at an angle that flatters your face. 
To avoid accumulation of sweat underneath, ensure you take it off occasionally, allowing the scalp to stay dry as well as to breathe. Face and neck: Try and refrain from maintaining a shadow stubble or sporting any facial hair for that matter - this will keep you feeling less itchy and moist in that area. 
Underarms: Trim or remove hair to prevent excessive sweating. To smell fresh through the day and to avoid sweat patches on your T-shirts and shirts, use a long-lasting and alcohol-free deo stick. 
Elbows: Use an exfoliating scrub (once a week) to keep elbows looking clean and free of grime. Better still, when in the shower, use a loofah scrub (with some soap or shower gel on it) to remove dry and dead skin. 
Arms: Removing the hair on your arms doesn't just make them look wider, but also makes your skin feel lighter and softer. Vest: If you tend to sweat excessively on your back and chest, wear a light coloured cotton vest under your shirt to absorb the moisture and keep you dry. 
Hair Care Nourish: In summer, avoid using oil or heavy styling products on a daily basis. Having said that, ensure that you condition your hair with an application of a nourishing oil (Salon / Modicare - almond & vitamin E oil) no more than once a week. 
Condition: To wash daily, use a mild frequent use shampoo (Fruit of the Earth - arnica and tea tree shampoo) followed by a good conditioner (Fruit of the Earth - almond and aloe vera conditioner). The Styles Under 20:Wild & Rebellious Hair Length: Medium to long. 
Sides: Very short, graduating and blending into medium to long strands. Slim, narrow sideburns.
