The dancing, spider-like futuristic cruiser!


Call it the wave of the future -- a dancing spider-like cruiser that can take up to 12 people on a 5,000-mile journey.

Sounds like something out of a James Bond flick? Yes, you heard it right. Scientists have built the Proteus, a cruiser known as Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel or WAM-V, which blasts along on two giant inflatable tubes that let it 'dance' with waves.

According to them, the spider-like craft, powered by twin diesel engines, can be crewed by just two people as it tackles voyages of up to 5,000 miles.

ULTIMATOM FOR PAKISTAN!!!

The people of India are really disgusted with every passing day after the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Its like both the Indian Government & Pakistan government are working hand in hand to just pass the time till people start forgetting about the tragedy & the public demand for action slows down. With every passing day either of the governments find some point or the other & pass on the blame to each other.
Till when will this game continue?
Do they really want to find a solution out of this?
From the look of it the people dont think so. What the general public thinks is that the Indian Government should act tough & give an ultimatom to the Pak Government. Say 24 hours. They have to act before 24 hours or face the consequences. What do you say? Something like this is necessary.

TERRORISTS OR GUNMEN??????????


The British Broadcasting Corporation, a state-sponsored but independently run, media organization has attracted sharp criticism for having "double-standards" in its coverage of the Mumbai terror attacks. Most times the BBC reporters referred to the terrorists who attacked Mumbai as "gunmen" or "militants".
When Britain finds a group of men plotting in a home laboratory your government has no hesitation in creating an international storm, and the BBC has no hesitation in calling them terrorists. When nearly two hundred Indian lives are lost, you cannot find a word in your dictionary more persuasive than 'gunmen'.
In India most critics have pointed out that how BBC termed the July 7, 2005 attackers in London as "terrorists" without hesitation. While in case of Mumbai they used "gunmen" and at odd places "suspected terrorist."
It is a shame that the BBC cannot see the difference between a criminal and a terrorist, and chooses in fact to protect the terrorist by giving him the camouflage of a criminal. This is not a matter of semantics. Terrorists are always happy to fudge the definition.

Mumbai Terror Probe

Less than a month after the unprecedented terror strikes in Mumbai , the Federal Bureau of Investigation has completed its probe in India and found evidence of a Pakistan security establishment being involved in the carnage.

An FBI team is likely to go there to prepare a chargesheet against the guilty.

As the FBI winds up the probe that commenced on December one, top US Intelligence official John Michael McConnell, who heads the Director of National Intelligence, air dashed to New Delhi and held series of meetings with the FBI team probing the case.

The FBI is understood to have found evidence about the role of a Pakistani security establishment other than the ISI being involved in the November 26 terror strikes in Mumbai that left over 180 people dead including six American nationals, official sources said.

McConnell has passed on the findings of FBI team to the officials in the government and the US probe agency would now be giving final touches to chargesheet in which it would be naming the accused persons.

BrahMos Supersonic Cruise missile

A BrahMos supersonic cruise missile with a strike-range of 290 km was on Thursday successfully test-fired in a vertical launch configuration for the first time by the Indian Navy.

With this launch, BrahMos has become the world's first and only supersonic cruise missile capable of being launched from both vertical and inclined positions from naval platforms.

"BrahMos missile was successfully test fired in vertical-launch configuration from an Indian Navy ship in the Bay of Bengal on Thursday," Defence Ministry sources said in New Delhi .

The test, the sources said, was carried out at noon from a moving Rajdoot class warship. The vertical launcher used in the test has been designed and developed by the Indo-Russian joint venture BrahMos Corporation.

"The test has proved and demonstrated the new universal vertical launcher designed and developed by the Corporation," they said, adding, "The mission objectives of the test were fully achieved."

The launch, carried out in presence of senior Navy officers and DRDO scientists, will give a boost to the future deployment of BrahMos in the naval platforms, they said.

"This will give a boost to ongoing programme of future ship installation for the missile. It will be installed in vertical launch configuration in all the future ships of the Indian Navy. This will include the both ships under construction and the ones who come back to shipyards for refurbishment," the sources added.

Indian Navy's second line of Talwar Class ships, under construction in Russia's Kaliningrad Shipyard, will also be equipped with new universal vertically launcher modules.

"Indian Navy's second line of Talwar Class ships, known as the 1135.6 Class in Russia, will also have these vertical launchers," the sources said.

BrahMos has already been inducted in INS Rajput ship in inclined configuration and its land launched version is also in service with the Indian Army .

The IAF is carrying out structural modifications on the Su-30MKI aircraft to develop an air launched version of the missile.

Attempts of integrating the missile in submarines are also on at Russian shipyards.

During the recent visit of Russian Defence Minister Anatoly Serdyukov to India, both sides agreed on developing a hypersonic version of the missile to be known as BrahMos-2.

Common Man

Hey guys,
Dont misunderstand me! U will think I am going on & on about this terrorist thing.But things compel me to keep writing as the issue is so touching.

The terrorists came, they did their act, killed as as many people as they could & finished the job entrusted on them.But what about the aftermath ?

In the aftermath of the gory attack, the politicians are fighting amongst themselves as to who is to blame for the negligence. Instead of doing that dont u think the most logical thing would be to take steps to prevent this from happening again?

The two countries, India & Pakistan are fighting each other. What is to be gained out of this.Will terrorism in India finish after a war with Pakistan? How will the common Man gain from this war. The common man will be as much affected by this war as he is by terrorist attack. Hundreds of common men died during the attack. Thousands more will die during the war. What next?????????????

Mad As hell

At 6 pm today, Mumbai's youth intend to stage a 'non-cooperation' movement of sorts at the Gateway of India.

Because everyone is "mad as hell and won't take it anymore"

Because everyone is "mad as hell and won't take it anymore", as Suparn Verma, filmmaker and former rediff staffer, declared on his blog last week.

Verma, director of the forthcoming thriller Acid Factory, has spearheaded the protest to be staged opposite the Taj Hotel on Wednesday evening, inviting everyone to join him and the word has spread like wildfire -- the city's youngsters are preparing to show up and take a stand for what they believe in.

"All I did was decide to take a stand and it's heartening to see how people decided to join in," he says. "Ours is a very motivated generation. Everyone is angry and rather than just light a candle and express sympathy, we need to channel a real effort into showing our collective strength. Our politicians have left our country in a state of disarray and we need to get together and move this mountain."

So how did one statement on one blog become a movement and what exactly is planned at the Gateway today? "People who read the blog have spread the word through SMSes and the Internet, they've turned it into a united agenda," explains Verma. "We're hoping to have a good turnout, hopefully a few thousand -- I've had positive responses from people across all walks of walk, MBAs, bankers, actors, journos... And it's not just in Mumbai, there will also be protests held at the same time this evening in Delhi (Connaught Place), Bangalore (Cubbon Park), Hyderabad (Tank Bund) and other cities."

SO BLOGGERS LET US DO OUR OWN BIT & EXPRESS SOLIDARITY GAINST THIS GLOBAL ENEMY OF TERRORISM

Three Cheers for Indian Navy

The Indian Navy has proved its mettle once again. Sent to weed out the sea pirate menace in the Gulf of Aden, the naval warship INS Tabar sank a pirate 'mother ship' after a fierce gunbattle.

Ever since its arrival on the Gulf of Aden, INS Tabar has successfully escorted 35 ships, including a number of foreign-flagged vessels, safely during their transit through pirate-infested waters in the region and also prevented two hijacking attempts on November 11
The first time the INS Tabar encountered pirates was on November 11.

In a swift action, warship INS Tabar intervened to thwart two near-simultaneous attacks by pirates on an Indian cargo vessel MV Jag Arnav and a Saudi flag carrier MV NCC Thihama within 25 nautical miles of each other.

The Indian warship received an SOS from the Saudi ship at around 1000 hours after a group of pirates surrounded it. Marine commandos on board the INS Tabar flew out in an armed helicopter and launched an assault on the attackers.

The pirates on board were armed with guns and rocket propelled grenade launchers, according to the Navy.

When it demanded the vessel stop for investigation, the pirate ship responded by threatening to blow up the naval warship.

In the ensuing exchange of fire, there was an explosion on the pirate vessel, which sank, said a statement by the Navy.

Officials suspect that the explosion occurred due to the explosive material stored inside the pirate ship.

Even as this operation was on, the warship received a panic call from MV Jag Arnav, a merchant vessel owned by Mumbai-based Great Eastern Shipping Company, with about 20 crew members on board.

The INS Tabar, sent 'an armed helicopter with marine commandos...' to intervene and prevent the hijacking, the Indian Navy said .

After having valiantly fought the pirates, INS Tabar will soon be back home following the central government's decision to send a larger warship into the region.

The Indian Navy has been patrolling the piracy-infested waters in keeping with the government guidelines to protect our sea borne trade, instil confidence in our sea faring community as well as function as a deterrent for pirates.

Young Technocrats in Bomb blasts???????????

The news is trickling in. All the guys who have been arrested for the bomb blasts which have recently taken place in India are highly educated technocrats. Where is all this leading to? The day will come when the guy sitting in your next cubicle in office may very well be a terrorist. Or your very smart & sauve boss may be the kingpin in the terror racket.

How can you believe anybody? How are you to know ABOUT Anybodys secret life. The guy you have your lunch with everyday & with whom you have arguments everyday may suddenly pull out a gun after one such argument because secretly he may be a terrorist.

Where is all this leading to? Where are we & who exactly are we??????????????

10 bizarre sights in Google Street View

The latest phase in Google's mission to organise the world's information — thousands of street-level photographs of major American cities — has raised questions that the search engine is invading people's privacy.

The new feature on Google's map service, called "Street View", was unveiled this week at the Where 2.0 conference in San Jose, California, but within hours of the photographs of downtown San Francisco and New York hitting the internet, bloggers were posting images of people, their faces visible, being arrested, sunbathing and urinating in public.

Posting on the website, Boing Boing, one resident of Berkeley, California, Mary Kalin-Casey said that she decided to see what her flat looked like on the site and was surprised to come across a highly detailed photograph of her cat, Monty, sitting in the window.

* 10 bizarre sights in Google Street View

* The web is built on a lack of privacy

"I'm all for mapping, but this feature literally gives me the shakes," she wrote. "I feel like I need to close all my curtains now. I'm going to look into whether it's possible for a person to have pictures of their home removed from Google Maps. Meanwhile, I'm happy to show bb readers the photo in the interest of illustrating creepy privacy violations. Heck, the whole world can see him anyway."

The photographs, provided to Google by Immersive Media, an imaging company headquartered in Calgary, Canada, have prompted unease in part because there is no apparent attempt to blur people's faces or number plates or obscure what is happening inside private properties along the route taken by the car-mounted cameras.

Images collected in just two days by the online magazine, Wired.com, show pedestrians picking their noses, police attending a fatality, a man climbing into an apartment block and a possible drug deal. There are also images taken inside New York's tunnels, a practice frowned on by the authorities since the September 11 attacks.

Google has defended the extent of the images, saying they are no different to what people see in their daily lives, and claiming that the website is equipped with "easily accessible tools for flagging inappropriate or sensitive imagery for review and removal". The company also said it approached anonymous shelters such as women's refuge centres and drug treatment facilites before the launch of the service and has removed them from the maps.

A spokeswoman in London said the company would not comment on whether it planned to extend the service across the US or to Britain, but promised respond quickly to parents, for instance, who called with concerns about the publication of images of their children on the street.

"We totally understand those concerns and we hope we've made it easy for people to register them," she said. "From the bottom up, we've taken those concerns into consideration."

But the assurances have failed to mollify privacy advocates. Simon Davies, the director of Privacy International, the London-based surveillance watchdog, criticised Google for failing to consult widely before launching their newest tool.

"The cultural imperative within Google is anti-privacy, no matter what they say," he said. "This is just the latest in a litany of privacy invasions by Google, which they justify by claiming openness as an excuse."

He added: "There is going to be long, bloody battle with Google one day unless they take the privacy message on board. Someone is going to get hurt, lose their job or their marriage because of this product and what will Google say? Buyer beware? But we have no choice."

"Google has to stop and take a breath and become a responsible member of the corporate community. I'm flabbergasted."

Despite reservations, the legal side of the issue is more forgiving. Privacy law in both the US and the UK broadly allows the publication of photographs in public places and Duncan Lamont, a media law partner at Charles Russell, said that the service would be unlikely to face major legal difficulties if it was extended to Britain. "If I was Google in England, I would be pretty relaxed," he said.

Mr Lamont said the sorts of images that people could contest under England's privacy laws would be those of children and those that showed intimate acts in private places, such as sunbathing naked in one's garden.

Otherwise he said the company could be in breach of Britain's data protection laws by inadvertently revealing private information such as visits to a brothel or hospital. "They would have to be unlucky," he said. "But I bet somewhere along the line they will be unlucky."

Scarletts Murder

The world is reading & discussing about the rape & murder of Scarlett Kelling from Britain on the beaches of Goa(India). The main topic of the discussion is about how her rapist or murderer will be punished. The law will take its own course.The main topic of discussions & blogs is how did her mother leave her , a minor girl in the company of a complete stranger & went of on her tour of India.
The girl was only 15, damn it. Thats an age when you can be easily lured. In addition to that it was found that she was high on a cocktail of LSD, ecstacy & cocain on the night she was killed.
Was it right on her mothers part to leave her alone?
OR
was it the usual thing done in the west.
We Indians treat our girls as minors till they are married even though their ages say they are adults. Is this right or was scarlets Mom right. This surely is a topic of debate. I would like my readers to comment on this & hope bring about a positive change in the peoples attitude.

Spice up ur blog

5 Ways to Spice Up Your Relationship with Your Blog
Submitted by Liz Strauss on March 27, 2007 - 2:03am in

Okay it happens. You and your blog have been together for a while. You see each other day after day. It's not that you don't care, but . . . um . . . the sex has gone out of your relationship and you both have just accepted that as the way things are.

What? Next thing you know, you'll be cheating on your blog, guest posting and a having a grand time on other blogs while your blog sits at home. Surely this blog relationship can be saved.
5 Things to Spice Up Your Relationship with Your Blog

Ah, remember when you wrote that first post and you hit publish. It was love. You can feel that again. Here are 10 things you can do to put the romance back into your relationship with your blog.

1. Change the header. Changing the header is like getting a blog makeover. You'll feel like a whole new publisher. Go for a radical difference. It will wake you up to new ideas. It will get the attention of new readers.
2. Find 5 ways to clean up things. In fact, clean up all of those things that have been irritating you for some time now. Clean out the closets. Open the windows and let some fresh air go through. Fresh air brings fresh ideas.
3. Do 5 days of beginning blogger behavior. Read only blogs you've never read before. Take time to comment on every one that says something that you find interesting. Go back to your blog, and post on the new ideas that you found.
4. Invite 5 bloggers to guest post. Ask them each to post one a week for five days in a row. Have them post on grand ideas -- ask them questions such as what they want to be when they grow up.
5. Rewrite your first 5 blog posts. i know this sounds silly. But if you go read them, you'll see how much history you and your blog have together, and what a great pair you make. Otherwise, how could you possibly have grown so much, and gotten all of the readers, you have since then?

Besides, after a closer look, isn't your blog just that much nicer than the blog next door?

12 Things your CV should NOT have

Your CV is your marketing brochure through which you try to sell a commodity, ie your skills to the potential buyer ie the prospective employer. The sole purpose of your CV is to fetch you an interview call. Nothing more, nothing less.

However, creating a CV isn't as simple as just using flowery language and pretty fonts. There are certain things that put recruiters off and if you want to make a good impression, make sure you do not commit these mistakes in what is arguably the most valuable document of your job hunt.

While the rules listed are well-founded, they are not carved in stone. At times you will need to break the rules. If you want to add these things knowingly and purposefully to your CV we advise you to do that.

The points mentioned here are not listed in the order of priority; instead they are listed in the sequence in which they usually appear on a CV.

~ Colorful or glossy paper and flashy fonts
Your CV is a formal, official document. Keep it simple.

~ Resume or CV at the top
Many people tend to add headings to their CV. The usual are CV, Curriculum Vitae and Resume. Do not do this.

~ Photographs until asked
Do not add your photo to the CV until you have been asked for it. Photographs are required only for certain types of positions like models, actors etc.

~ Usage of 'I', 'My', 'He', 'She'
Do not use these in your CV. Many candidates write, 'I worked as Team Leader for XYZ Company' or 'He was awarded Best Employee for the year 2007'. Instead use bullet points to list out your qualifications/ experience like: Team leader for XYZ Company from 2006-2007.

~ Spelling mistakes and grammatical errors
Proofread your CV until you are confident that it doesn't have any spelling mistakes or grammatical errors. These are big put-offs for the recruiters. Moreover, sometimes these mistakes might land you in an embarrassing situation.

A candidate who submitted his CV without proofreading it committed the mistake of wrongly spelling 'ask' as 'ass'. Now you can imagine the type of embarrassment he must have faced during the interview, when the interviewer pointed it out. These mistakes tend to convey a lazy and careless attitude to the interviewer.

~ Lies about your candidature
Do not lie about your past jobs or qualifications or anything which might have an impact on the job. You may be able to secure a job with these lies today but tomorrow you may lose it as well.

~ Abbreviations or jargon that is difficult to understand
People screening your resume usually belong to the HR department. If they do not understand what the abbreviations and jargon mean, they will simply dump your CV in the trash can. Avoid over-using such terms as far as possible.

~ Reasons for leaving last job
Leave these reasons to be discussed during the personal interview. For example, some candidates write: Reason for leaving the last job: Made redundant. Avoid making such statements in your CV, they add no value. Besides, if you do get an interview call, chances are the interviewer will address the issue.

~ Past failures or health problems
Mentioning these immediately slash your chances of getting an interview call.

For instance, you have a gap in your employment because you started your own business which did not do well. Some candidates might write -- Reason for gap in employment: Started own business which failed. Do not do this type of injustice with your job hunt at this stage of writing the CV.

~ Current or expected salary
Leave it to be discussed while negotiating the salary.

~ Irrelevant details
Leave out the details like marital status, sex, passport number, number of kids, age of kids. These are usually irrelevant for most interviewers but at times could be used as a basis for discrimination.

~ References
Do not include them until asked. In fact, it is not even required to mention the line 'Reference available on request'. If the recruiter requires a reference, he/she will ask you to bring it along for the interview.

Now that you have run through the list, take a fresh look at your CV and prune away unnecessary details and un affordable blunders that could have cost you your dream job.

IPL AUCTION

It was no surprise that all the players in the reserve pool were sold for their base price with former Australia pacer Glenn McGrath topping the list at US $350,000 to Delhi.

* IPL Auction: Players' worth

Australia's batting trump card Michael Hussey must be a bit disappointed after being taken over by Chennai for US $250,000, while his younger and inexperienced brother David bagged more than double the price from Shah Rukh Khan's Kolkata team.

The West Indian batting duo of Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnarine Chanderpaul went to Mohali and Bangalore respectively commanding figures of US $225,000 and US $200,000.
# Dhoni fetches highest price
# SRK buys Ishant for US $950,000
# Jayasuriya most valuable
# Uthappa, Rohit Sharma hit jackpot
# Symonds is 2nd million-dollar buy
# Mallya buys Kallis for US $9,00,000
# Styris goes cheap

Kolkata shored up it's wicketkeeping department with the purchase of Zimbabwe's Tatenda Taibu for US $125,000, while South Africa's Twenty20 specialist Loots Bosman was grabbed by Mumbai for US $150,000.

Former Australia opener Justin Langer was bought by Jaipur for US $200,000, while compatriot Simon Katich was purchased by Mohali for US $200,000 in last minute dealings in the players auction.

Pakistan's veteran batsman Mohammad Yousuf was withdrawn from the auction after the rebel Indian Cricket League sent legal notice to all eight franchises asking them not to bid for Yousuf. Ashwell Prince was also withdrawn from the auction, which meant a total of 77 players out of 79 were bought for their reserve prices.
