For All animal lovers, Animal love can be dangerous- especially if you are in love with Swine!

Think twice before you kiss any swine – it might cause swine flue!!

Swine flu spreads in the same way as ordinary colds and flu.

Swine influenza does not normally infect humans, although this occasionally does occur – usually in people who have had close contact with pigs.

Swine flu regularly causes outbreaks in pigs.

Pity the poor pig. The otherwise estimable mammal has never had a very good rep — something about the mud, the snout, the oink. Now add the flu.

When bird flu viruses replicate in pigs, they pick up the viral machinery that gives more selective flu strains the power to spread to other mammals, like us. That’s what makes pigs such potent mixing bowls for flu.

Avian flu that is passed through the pig’s mammalian system, however, can be passed readily among humans.

Pigs that carry influenza tend not to die en masse the way flocks of birds do, eliminating the immediate tip-off that a serious pathogen is at large.

I was just reading the nytimes news report (dt: December 24, 2007) that US officials see waste in Billions of American money sent to Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a country located in South Asia, defamed for harbouring Global terrorists and terrorist organizations like Al kaida, taliban, lashkar a toiba.

This American money had been diverted to help finance weapons systems designed to counter India, not Al Qaeda or the Taliban, the officials said, adding that the United States has paid tens of millions of dollars in inflated Pakistani reimbursement claims for fuel, ammunition and other costs.

This is now evident, as they used the American money to enrich their goal of making improvised Islamic nuclear bomb with the help of china. They succeeded in their plans, they made nuclear bombs, proliferated the nuclear technology to terrorist states like North Korea in exchange of missile technology and still harboring global terroirsts and reaping money.

But US strategists and law makers are still sleeping, they are not understand the pakistan is making fool of them and reaping US tax payers money for their own cause of developing  weapons of mass destruction. Recently, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the United States would provide $100 million to Pakistan in humanitarian aid such as food, tents, radios, generators and other items and that the U.S. Defense Department would give a further $10 million in unspecified assistance. After announcing this huge money of $110 million to Pakistan, she said that “Providing this assistance is not only the right thing to do but we believe it is essential to global security and the security of the United States and we are prepared to do more as the situation demands,” .

Clinton also described the last three decades of U.S. policy toward Pakistan as “incoherent,” saying that the United States had worked with Pakistan to arm the Mujahideen fighters who helped drive the Soviet Union from Afghanistan in the 1980s only to effectively abandon both countries.

She needs to understand that they shake hands with US for their own strategic interests and they got huge money in return of their grey support to US during these years.

They are now a bigger threat than afganistan and long time enemy Russia…as it is now starkly evident that they are the biggest nuclear proliferator regime in the world.

A recent Congressional report has told US lawmakers that North Korea received designs for uranium enrichment centrifuges from Pakistan’s disgraced nuclear scientist A Q Khan in return for its long range missiles.

I don’t understand the use of AQ khan instead of Pakistan because North Korea has provided missiles to Pakistan not to AQ Khan. North Korea has been exporting missiles to countries in the Middle East and South Asia and has had joint collaboration in development of missiles with Iran and Pakistan, it said.

In the 1990s, North Korea exported Scud and Nodong missiles to Pakistan, Iran, Yemen, Syria and reportedly Egypt. It entered into joint development programmes with both Pakistan and Iran.

Pyongyang received designs for uranium enrichment centrifuges from Pakistan nuclear “czar” A Q Khan and has attempted to purchase overseas key components for uranium enrichment centrifuges, but some of these purchases have been blocked, according to the report.

Even after so many reports were declassified to US law makers they are still providing hundreds of millions of dollars to Pakistan and they in turn are conspiring with Iran and North Korea to design new power corridor by developing weapons of mass destruction. I am not a strategic analyst, nor I am a defense person…  I am just a common citizen but still I wish to know from our responsible / sensible government, why they are directly/ indirectly supporting terrorist nations.



The Deo Ad – Really Creative! – “People Move Away When You Have Body Odour”.

Life-size stickers of people were stuck on automatic sliding glass doors at a mall in Mumbai, India. When someone approaches the doors move apart and it feels like the people on the door are moving away. The person enters to find the message ‘People Move Away When You Have Body Odour’.

In a country where ghosts are traditionally believed to hide in the loo, a Japanese company is advertising a new literary experience – a horror story printed on toilet paper.

Each roll carries several copies of a new nine-chapter novella written by Koji Suzuki, the Japanese author of the horror story `Ring,` which has been made into movies in both Japan and Hollywood.

`Drop,` set in a public restroom, takes up about three feet (90 centimeters) of a roll and can be read in just a few minutes, according to the manufacturer, Hayashi Paper.

The company promotes the toilet paper, which will sell for 210 yen ($2.20) a roll, as “a horror experience in the toilet.”

Toilets in Japan were traditionally tucked away in a dark corner of the house due to religious beliefs. Parents would tease children that a hairy hand might pull them down into the dark pool below.

HOUSTON: A decommissioned Navy warship USNS General Hoyt S Vandenberg has been intentionally sunk off the Florida Keys to create the world’s second largest artificial reef which will serve as a long-term habitat for several marine fish species.

The 17,250-tonne ship USNS Vandenberg sank in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on Wednesday in less than two minutes, said Andy Newman, spokesman for the Florida Keys Tourism Council.

“It went down like a rock,” Newman was quoted as saying by CNN. “Everything looked very, very smooth.”

The goal of the $8.6 million project is to divert fishing and diving pressure away from natural reefs, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The Vandenberg was built in 1943. It was commissioned as a World War II troop transport ship. After Japan surrendered, the Vandenberg was the first Navy ship to return to New York Harbour.

During the 1950s, the ship was used to transport refugees from Europe and Australia to America. In the 1960s the Air Force used the Vandenberg to track missiles. It also was used to track rockets and early space shuttle launches.

The ship, which was decommissioned in 1986, featured in the 1999 movie Virus, starring Donald Sutherland and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The age-old love triangle of Archie comics has finally been broken, after Riverdale’s ultimate playboy Archie Andrews the beloved, freckled protagonist of the Archie comic books picked the vixen Veronica over girl-next-door Betty to be his wife.

So what if Betty was a blonde, loyal and kind- when it came to popping the question Archie chose the raven-haired, charming and rich Veronica.

After 67 years of being in a dilemma, Archie – the eternal teenager is all set to tie the knot with the vixen-a choice that left many Archie comic fans in gasps.

Archie Comic Publications announced on May 27 that the flighty redhead from Riverdale picked Veronica over Betty Cooper.

Already in mid-May, the publisher sent speculation swirling when it announced a special marital-themed storyline for release in August, but didn’t reveal the lucky lady.

The wedding will take place after the gang graduate from college, and venture out into the working world.

However, the response to the proposal has been markedly divided-Betty fans are outraged that the girl next door has been ditched yet again for the beautiful, yet spoilt, Ronnie.

While many fans are questioning whether Archie should marry at all, because it could mean a possible end to the enduring comic-book soap opera.

The cover of Archie Comics (issue 600) shows Archie proposing to Veronica.
