Amazing Home Remedies……

September 28, 2009

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

ABC of Internet !!!

September 9, 2009

World Wide Web

World Wide Web

Key milestones in the development and growth of the Internet


1969: On September 2, two computers at University of California, Los Angeles, exchange meaningless data in first test of Arpanet, an experimental military network. The first connection between two sites UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in Menlo Park, California takes place on October 29, though the network crashes after the first two letters of the word “logon.” UC Santa Barbara and University of Utah later join.


1970: Arpanet gets first East Coast node, at Bolt, Beranek and Newman in Cambridge, Mass.


1972: Ray Tomlinson brings e-mail to the network, choosing “at” symbol as way to specify e-mail addresses belonging to other systems.


1973: Arpanet gets first international nodes, in England and Norway.


1974: Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn develop communications technique called TCP, allowing multiple networks to understand one another, creating a true Internet. Concept later splits into TCP/IP before formal adoption on January 1, 1983.


1983: Domain name system is proposed. Creation of suffixes such as “.com,” ”.gov” and “.edu” comes a year later.


1984: Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, a married couple who worked as computer operations staff at Stanford University, later joined by Richard Troiano, founded Cisco Systems and it shipped First Router online .

1988: One of the first Internet worms, Morris, cripples thousands of computers.


1989: Quantum Computer Services, now AOL, introduces America Online service for Macintosh and Apple II computers, beginning an expansion that would connect nearly 27 million Americans online by 2002.


1990: Tim Berners-Lee creates the World Wide Web while developing ways to control computers remotely at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research.


1993: Marc Andreessen and colleagues at University of Illinois create Mosaic, the first Web browser to combine graphics and text on a single page, opening the Web to the world with software that is easy to use.


1994: Andreessen and others on the Mosaic team form a company to develop the first commercial Web browser, Netscape, piquing the interest of Microsoft Corp. and other developers who would tap the Web’s commerce potential. Two immigration lawyers introduce the world to spam, advertising their green card lottery services.


1995: Amazon.com Inc. opens its virtual doors.


1996: Passage of US law curbing pornography online. Although key provisions are later struck down as unconstitutional, one that remains protects online services from liability for their users’ conduct, allowing information and misinformation to thrive.


1998: Google Inc. forms out of a project that began in Stanford dorm rooms. US government delegates oversight of domain name policies to Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, or ICANN. Justice Department and 20 states sue Microsoft, accusing the maker of the ubiquitous Windows operating system of abusing its market power to thwart competition from Netscape and others.


1999: Napster popularizes music file-sharing and spawns successors that have permanently changed the recording industry. World Internet population surpasses 250 million.


2000: The dot-com boom of the 1990s becomes a bust as technology companies slide. Amazon.com, eBay and other sites are crippled in one of the first widespread uses of the denial-of-service attack, which floods a site with so much bogus traffic that legitimate users cannot visit.


2002: World Internet population surpasses 500 million.


2006: World Internet population surpasses 1 billion.


2008: World Internet population surpasses 1.5 billion. China’s Internet population reaches 250 million, surpassing the United States as the world’s largest. Netscape’s developers pull the plug on the pioneer browser, though an offshoot, Firefox, remains strong. Major airlines intensify deployment of Internet service on flights.


Ultimate Smartness or Innocence !

September 8, 2009
Be Positive Like This Boy….A beautiful Madam was having trouble with one of her students in 1st Grade class. Madam asked,’Boy. what is your problem?’ Boy answered, ‘I’m too smart for the first-grade. My sister is in the third-grade and I’m smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 4th Grade!’ Madam had enough. She took the Boy to the principal’s office. While the Boy waited in the outer office, madam explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Madam he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the first-grade and behave.She agreed. the Boy was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test. Principal: ‘What is 3 x 3?’ Boy.: ‘9’. Principal: ‘What is 6 x 6?’ Boy.: ’36’. And so it went with every question the principal thought a 4th grade should know. The principal looks at Madam and tells her, ‘I think Boy can go to the 4th grade.’ Madam says to the principal, ‘I have some of my own questions. Can I ask him ?’ The principal and Boy both agreed. Madam asks, ‘What does a cow have four of that I have only two of’? Boy, after a moment ‘Legs.’ Madam: ‘What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?’ Boy.: ‘Pockets.’ Madam: What starts with a C and ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin whitish liquid? Boy.: Coconut Madam: What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft And sticky? The principal’s eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer, Boy was taking charge. Boy.: Bubblegum Madam: What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs? The principal’s eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer.. Boy.: Shake hands Madam: You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do. Boy.: Tent Madam: A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you’re bored. The best man always has me first. The Principal was looking restless, a bit tense and took one large Patiala Vodka peg. Boy.: Wedding Ring Madam: I come in many sizes. When I’m not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good. Boy.: Nose Madam: I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver. Boy.: Arrow Madam: What word starts with a ‘F’ and ends in ‘K’ that means lot of heat and excitement? Boy.: Fire truck Madam: What word starts with a ‘F’ and ends in ‘K’ if u don’t get it, u have to use ur hand. Boy.: Fork Madam: What is it that all men have one of it’s longer on some men than on others, the pope doesn’t use his and a man gives it to his wife after they’re married? Boy.: SURNAME. Madam: What part of the man has no bone but has muscles, has lots of veins, like pumping, is responsible for making love ? Boy.: HEART. The principal breathed a sigh of relief and said to the teacher, ‘Send this Boy to IIM AHMEDABAD (Indian Institute Of Managment) I got the last ten questions wrong myself!’

Things You Never Knew Your Cell Phone !!

September 6, 2009
Hi,
Very useful Information….Read on….
For all the folks with cell phones. (This should be printed and kept in your car, purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.)
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.
Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival.
Check out the things that you can do with it:
FIRST
Emergency
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find
Yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
Emergency, dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to
Establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly, this number 112
can be dialed even if the keypad is locked. Try it out.
SECOND
Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys In the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home ontheir cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock. Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other ‘remote’ for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk).
Editor’s Note : It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked
Our car over a cell phone!’
THIRD
Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#. Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when youcharge your cell phone next time.
Finaly…..
FOURTH
How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following Digits on your phone: *#06#.A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset. Write it down and keep itsomewhere safe.
When your phone gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam ‘s Speech in Hyderabad

September 5, 2009

*Please read this article by giving 10 minutes from your busy life.
Really good…. ** *

* The President of India DR. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam ‘s Speech in Hyderabad . *

Why is the media here so negative?
Why are we in India so embarrassed to recognize our own strengths, our
achievements? We are such a great nation. We have so many amazing
success stories but we refuse acknowledge them— Why?
We are the first in milk production.
We are number one in Remote sensing satellites.
We are the second largest producer of wheat.
We are the second largest producer of rice.
Look at Dr. Sudarshan , he has transferred the tribal village into a
self-sustaining, self-driving unit.

There are millions of such achievements but our media is only obsessed
in the bad news and failures and disasters.

I was in Tel Aviv once and I was reading the Israeli newspaper. It was
the day after a lot of attacks and bombardments and deaths had taken
place. The Hamas had struck. But the front page of the newspaper had
the picture of a Jewish gentleman who in five years had transformed
his desert into an orchid and a granary. It was this inspiring picture
that everyone woke up to. The gory details of killings, bombardments,
deaths, were inside in the newspaper, buried among other news.

In India we only read about death, sickness, terrorism, crime.

Why are we so NEGATIVE?

Another question: Why are we, as a nation so obsessed with foreign
things? We want foreign T. Vs, we want foreign shirts. We want foreign
technology.

Why this obsession with everything imported. Do we not realize that
self-respect comes with self-reliance? I was in Hyderabad giving this
lecture,when a 14 year old girl asked me for my autograph. I asked her
what her goal in life is. She replied: I want to live in a developed
India . For her, you and I will have to build this developed India .
You must proclaim. India is not an under-developed nation; it is a
highly developed nation.

Do you have 10 minutes? Allow me to come back with a vengeance.

Got 10 minutes for your country? If yes, then read; otherwise, choice is yours.
YOU say that our government is inefficient.
YOU say that our laws are too old.
YOU say that the municipality does not pick up the garbage.
YOU say that the phones don’t work, the railways are a joke,
The airline is the worst in the world, mails never reach their destination.
YOU say that our country has been fed to the dogs and is the absolute pits.

YOU say, say and say.. What do YOU do about it?

Take a person on his way to Singapore . Give him a name – YOURS. Give
him aface – YOURS. YOU walk out of the airport and you are at your
International best. In Singapore you don’t throw cigarette butts on
the roads or eat in the stores. YOU are as proud of their Underground
links as they are. You pay $5 (approx. Rs. 60) to drive through
Orchard Road (equivalent of Mahim Causeway or Pedder Road ) between 5
PM and 8 PM. YOU come back to the parking lot to punch your parking
ticket if you have over stayed in a restaurant or a shopping mall
irrespective of your status identity… In Singapore you don’t say
anything, DO YOU?

YOU wouldn’t dare to eat in public during Ramadan, in Dubai .

YOU would not dare to go out without your head covered in Jeddah .

YOU would not dare to buy an employee of the telephone exchange in
London at 10 pounds ( Rs.650) a month to, ‘see to it that my STD and
ISD calls are billed to someone else.’

YOU would not dare to speed beyond 55 mph (88 km/h) in Washington and
then tell the traffic cop,’Jaanta hai main kaun hoon (Do you know who
I am?). I am so and so’s son. Take your two bucks and get lost.’

YOU wouldn’t chuck an empty coconut shell anywhere other than the
garbage pail on the beaches in Australia and New
Zealand

Why don’t YOU spit Paan on the streets of Tokyo ? Why don’t YOU use
examination jockeys or buy fake certificates in Boston ??? We are
still talking of the same YOU..

YOU who can respect and conform to a foreign system in other countries
but cannot in your own. You who will throw papers and cigarettes on
the road the moment you touch Indian ground. If you can be an involved
and appreciative citizen in an alien country, why cannot you be the
same here in India ?

Once in an interview, the famous Ex-municipal commissioner of Bombay ,
Mr. Tinaikar , had a point to make. ‘Rich people’s dogs are walked on
the streets to leave their affluent droppings all over the place,’ he
said. ‘And then the same people turn around to criticize and blame the
authorities for inefficiency and dirty pavements. What do they expect
the
officers to do? Go down with a broom every time their dog feels the
pressure in his bowels? In America every dog owner has to clean up
after his pet has done the job. Same in Japan . Will the Indian
citizen do that here?’ He’s right. We go to the polls to choose a
government and after that forfeit all responsibility.

We sit back wanting to be pampered and expect the government to do
everything for us whilst our contribution is totally negative. We
expect the government to clean up but we are not going to stop
chucking garbage all over the place nor are we going to stop to pick
up a stray piece of paper and throw it in the bin.

We expect the railways to provide clean bathrooms but we are not going
to learn the proper use of bathrooms.

We want Indian Airlines and Air India to provide the best of food and
toiletries but we are not going to stop pilfering at the least
opportunity.

This applies even to the staff who is known not to pass on the service
to the public. When it comes to burning social issues like those
related to women, dowry, girl child! and others, we make loud drawing
room protestations and continue to do the reverse at home. Our excuse?

‘It’s the whole system which has to change, how will it matter if I
alone forego my sons’ rights to a dowry.’ So who’s going to change the
system? What does a system consist of ? Very conveniently for us it
consists of our neighbor’s, other households, other cities, other
communities and the government. But definitely not me and YOU.

When it comes to us actually making a positive contribution to the
system we lock ourselves along with our families into a safe cocoon
and look into the distance at countries far away and wait for a
Mr.Clean to come along & work miracles for us with a majestic sweep of
his hand or we leave the country and run away. Like lazy cowards
hounded by our fears we run to America to bask in their glory and
praise their system. When New York becomes insecure we run to England
. When England experiences unemployment, we take the next flight out
to the Gulf. When the Gulf is war struck, we demand to be rescued and
brought home by the Indian government. Everybody is out to abuse and
rape the country. Nobody thinks of feeding the system. Our conscience
is mortgaged to money.

Dear Indians, The article is highly thought inductive, calls for a
greatdeal of introspection and pricks one’s conscience too…. I am
echoing J. F. Kennedy ‘s words to his fellow Americans to relate to
Indians…..

‘ASK WHAT WE CAN DO FOR INDIA
AND DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE TO MAKE INDIA
WHAT AMERICA AND OTHER WESTERN COUNTRIES ARE TODAY’

Lets do what India needs from us.

Forward this mail to each Indian for a change instead of sending Jokes
or junk mails.

Thank you,
Dr. Abdul Kalaam

I humbly request you to forward this to every Indian…… .JAI HIND
