Monthly mood swings are not just women's business: the latest research shows that the boys are also prone to he monthly blues. A study by psychologists from England's University Of Derby suggests that men may experience cyclical symptoms similar to, or worse, than those suffered by premenstrual women.
Symptomps of this 'periodic male tension' or PMT include pain. loss of concentration, behavioral changes, physical reactions, negative feelings and loss of arousal. The reasearch team asked 100 men and women about symptoms usually realated to the menstrual cycle.
They were stunned when the men reported they suffered from similiar symptomps more severely than the women.Another hypothesis is that men have a lower pain threshold than women-and making a fuss about nothing.

JoHn HanD, of Hand Melon Farm in New York State offers tips on buying rock melon....
Be gentle: A melon should feel slightly soft. USe your hands to feel for bruises. If you hear or feel anything when you shake, it mike be overripe.
Better yet, use your nose: A sweet smell means the melon is ripe.
Take a look: It should not have any remnant of a stem. If it does, it was picked early.
Hit the road: The fruit is best when it's fresh picked, which you are more likely to find at a roadside stand.

Eathing a colourful diet-with green,red,blue,white and yellow fruits and vegetables-is healthy, and can lower the risk of some cancers. But not all foods pACK the same punch, says dietitian Marilyn Nanney. Add these powerhouses to your rainbow:
Protect the immune system, vision and heart health
Maintain the urinary tract health,promotes memory function
Sustains memory function and urinary tract health
MAintains heart health and good cholesterol levels
Promotes vision, strong bones and teeth

If you would like your kids to eat healthy, start with your own diet. The more fruit and vegetables Mum and Dad eat, the more junior is likely to consume, according to a study of two-to six-year- olds at LOndon's University College. And youngesters who were introduced to these foods earlier tended to rearch for them more often. Those wo had been breastfed ate food and vegetables more frequently than bottle-fed kids.
Speaking of milk, reasearchers from Baylor College of Medicine and Penn State University found that girls who met calcium requirements had mums recommended amount of calcium at age five were nearly five times AS likely to do so at age nine.

Skip the fat-free salad dressing, and lose the guilt. Full-fat and redused-fat dressings help your body absorb nutrients from uncooked veggies better than fat-free,say doctors at lowa State University.
They gave seven people salads of spinach, romaine, carrots and tomatoes with dressings containing 0, 6 or 28 fat grams. After each salad, researchers took blood samples to measure the cartenoids, nutrients that may protect against cancer and other diseases. When people ate full-or reduced-fat dressings, they absorbed carotenoids far better than when they ate the no-fat, which allowed for virtually no absorption.
Don't think you can drown your salad in fatty dressing. Use reduced-fat, to maximise carotenoid absorption and limit fat intake.

Most teenagers will live through a plague of pimples at some time- usually just before an important date. But what should you do when acne grows from a few blackheads to large cysts?
Acoording to S.C.Yeung, a specialist at Singapore's National Skin Centre, you should consult your doctor rather than wait to 'outgrow' acne. Medical treatment can improve your appearance and prevent the development of scars.
To keep acne from getting worse, dermatologists recommend gently washing your face- not scrubbing or rubbing- no more than twice a day with a mild soap. And although there is no problem wearing make-up or shaving, oly and greasy cosmetics may make yhe condition worse.
Diet doesn't usually cause acne, but a few people find that their acne gets worse when they eat certain foods, particularly chocolate, fried food and chillies.

Gout was something people used to get from eating too much rich food, right?? That's why Henry VIII had the arthritic condition. True, but gout is still around today. And some foods do raise risk while others lower it.
When the kidneys are hit by too much food waste in the form of uric acid, the acid crytallises in joints, causing pain.
In a study of 47,000 healthy men by Mass-achusetts General Hospital and other institutions, those who ate four servings of seafood a week were 50 per cent likelier to develop gout. Those who had more than two servings of red meat a day upped their risk by 40 per cent.
Eating three or more servings of low-fat dairy a day cut risk by 44 per cent; one serving cut risk by 20 per cent.

An idea has been doing the rounds on the internet that if you suffer a heart attack while alone, you can keep yourself alive possible restore a pulse by coughing.
The British Heart Foundation warns that this is based loosely on reports of cardiac patients who achieved some blood flow by coughing, much like chest compressions- but someone alone would be unlikely to keep themselves conscious long enough to drive to hospital, as the rumour suggests. Vigorous coughing could do more harm than good. Anyone experiencing chest pain should call for help, especially if it lasts 15 minutes or more.

'Nice Dog. What's its name?' I asked my friend's ten-year -old son.'Bob,' he said. 'And your cat?' 'Bob.'
'How do you keep them straight?' 'Well, one is Bob Cat and the other is Bob Barker,' the boy answered. 'Tell him your rabbit's name.' his father suggested. The kid smiled and said, 'Dennis Hopper.'

I was scribbling my name on the receipt for my credit-card purchase when the clerk noticed that i had never signed the back of my card. Before she could complete the transaction, she said i would have to sign i. ' Why ?' I asked. 'So i can compare the signature on the card with the one on your receipt, and studied both signatures.
As luck would have it, they matched.
We live in Saskatchewan and after a cold snap my wife asked me to pick up some long underwear for her. I was looking around a department store when a saleswoman asked if she could help. I told her what i wanted, and she said I would find it in the lingerie department.
' You know you're in Canada,' I grinned,'when long underwear is considered lingerie.'

t0day, i would like t0 teach y0u h0w t0 make a kite.

The debate continues as to whether mobile phones cause brain tumors: the results of a Swedish study that ten years of mobile use does raise the risk of acoustic neuroma (a benign tumor of the auditory nerve). If you’re worried, here are steps to take:
· Use a hands – free earpiece or headset
· A shield that covers the whole phone can work, though some will impair the phone’s effectiveness
· Absorbing buttons that attach to the outside of your phone can absorb radiation, but only by 20 percent or so
· Different phone models can vary in radiation output by up to 80 percent – look for a low “SAR” level.

For morbidly obese people, weight – loss surgery is an aggressive, but effective, answer. Since surgery may be too risky for the heaviest of these patients, experts are working on an alternative. In an endoscopic procedure that could potentially be done on at outpatient basis, doctors insert a long, flexible tube down the throat. It grabs the wall of the stomach and the staples them together, creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach, so less food is needed to create a feeling of fullness. Perforation (to the esophagus or stomach) in a small concern, but because the technique is less invasive than surgery, it’s less traumatic, making it a safer option for some people. The technique hasn’t been tested on people yet. If clinical trials go well, the next step is seeking government approval, says bariatric surgeon Roger de la Torre, co- founder of Satiety, the company that developed the procedure.


Would you recognize the signs of a serious, possibly life-threatening, allergic reaction? Here’s a simple guide:
1) Face. Itchiness, redness, swelling of the face and tongue.
2) Airways. Trouble breathing, swallowing or speaking.
3) Stomach. Abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhoea.
4) Total body. Rash itchiness, swelling, weakness, paleness, loss of consciousness.

What causes these symptoms? The most common triggers include food – most frequently peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, milk, eggs, fish, soy, sesame seed and wheat – insect sting, drugs and latex.

This should come as welcome advice to anyone attempting an all-night study session –go to bed instead. New research by the University of Liege in Belgium suggests a good night’s sleep after solid study enhances recall. Researchers asked volunteers to learn the layout of a virtual town adapted from a computer game. Brain scans of these volunteers during sleep afterwards showed higher activity in the hippocampus – one of the brains’s learning centers – than in a control group who hadn’t studied. The researchers then tested the learners’ knowledge after the sleep sessions and found that there was a direct link between performance and the levers of brain activity during sleep. “Our results provide critical evidence that hippocampus activity during sleep correlates with improvement in memory performance,” said researchers Philippe Peigneux.

We eat more when we have lots of choices, like a buffet. But new research from the University of Illinois and University of Pennsylvania suggest that how food is arranged (in particular, by color ) also plays a role. When study coauthor Barbara Khan offered people six varieties of jellybeans, separated by color or mixed in a bowl, they ate about twice as many from the bowl. Why? Perhaps a mixed looks like it has more variety. So if you are trying to loose your weight, limit your choices and be watchful for color cues that would make you overeat.

I volunteered recently to perform a parachute jump for charity. One our first day of training, the instructor made an important point about preparing for landing at 100 meters“ How do you know when you’re at 100 meters?” asked one woman.” A good question,” replied the instructor. “At 100 meters, you can recognize the faces of people on the ground.” The woman thought about this for a while before saying, “What happens if there’s no-one there I know?”

Do you know what Baju Kurung is?

my frenzs n me are wearing Baju Kurung

The Baju Kurung, or more specifically, the Baju Kurung Teluk Belanga, is the Pahang traditional Malay costume for women.And in more "modern" times, we have the Baju Kebaya, more specifically the Baju Kebaya Turki (also known as Baju Riau-Pahang or Baju Belah), become another popular and favorite attire for ladies in Pahang (one of the country in Malaysia ).

Well, just go to any Malay house, open the cupboard of the lady in the house, and you can definitely find at least one Baju Kurung dress in the wardrobe, if not a full line of the traditional Malay women costume.This is because even though some women prefer modern western attires, the Baju Kurung is still an elegant and sweet dress for women in Pahang and Malaysia.And worn with matching shoes and handbag, well the lady will look... should I say... demure... charming and... with a well mannered poise -- ahh, a real lady.

The bicycle, cycle, or bike is a pedal-driven, human-powered vehicle with two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other. Bicycles were introduced in the 19th century and now number about one billion worldwide. They are the principal means of transportation in many regions. They also provide a popular form of recreation, and have been adapted for such uses as children's toys, adult fitness, military and police applications, courier services, and competitive sports.
The basic shape and configuration of a typical bicycle has changed little since the first chain-driven model was developed around 1885.Many details have been improved, especially since the advent of modern materials and computer-aided design. These have allowed for a proliferation of specialized designs for particular types of cycling.
The bicycle has had a considerable effect on human society, in both the cultural and industrial realms. In its early years, bicycle construction drew on pre-existing technologies; more recently, bicycle technology has, in turn, contributed both to old and new areas.

There are only so many hours in a day, a week, and a term. You cannot change the number of hours, but you can decide how to best use them. To be successful in school, you must carefully manage your study time. Here is a strategy for doing this.

1)Prepare a Term Calendar
·At the beginning of a term, prepare a Term Calendar. Update it as the term goes on. Here is what to do to prepare a Term Calendar.
·Record your school assignments with their due dates and your scheduled tests.
·Record your planned school activities.
·Record your known out-of-school activities.
·Each Sunday before a school week, prepare a Weekly Schedule. Update it as the week goes on. Here is what to do to prepare a Weekly Schedule.

2)Record your daily classes.
-Enter things to be done for the coming week from your Term Calendar.
-Review your class notes from the previous week to see if you need to add any school activities.
-Add any out-of-school activities in which you will be involved during the week.
-Be sure to include times for completing assignments, working on projects, and studying for tests. These times may be during the school day, right after school, evenings, and weekends.
-Each evening before a school day, prepare a Daily Organizer for the next day. Place a √ next to each thing to do as you accomplish it.

-Your Weekly Schedule should have more detail than your Term Calendar.
-Your Daily Organizer should have more detail than your Weekly Schedule. Using a Term Calendar, a Weekly Schedule, and a Daily Organizer will help you make the best use of your time.

The Food Guide Pyramid is one way for people to understand how to eat healthy. A rainbow of colored, vertical stripes represents the five food groups plus fats and oils. Here's what the colors stand for:
orange — grains
green — vegetables
red — fruits
yellow — fats and oils
blue — milk and dairy products
purple — meat, beans, fish, and nuts
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) changed the pyramid in 2005 because they wanted to do a better job of telling Americans how to be healthy. The agency later released a special version for kids. Notice the girl climbing the staircase up the side of the pyramid? That's a way of showing kids how important it is to exercise and be active every day. In other words, play a lot! The steps are also a way of saying that you can make changes little by little to be healthier. One step at a time, get it?

The benefits of apple…
The old saying “ to eat an apple going to bed, will make the doctor beg his bread” has been justified by its many health-rich properties. A member of the rose family, fossil remains have shown that apples were gathered and stored 5,000 years ago and it’s likely that they were already cultivated during the Neolithic times. Apples are excellent detoxifiers and apple juice can destroy viruses in the body.
In one recent study , Riu Hai Liu of Cornell University, has found although apples has only a small amount of vitamin C, eating 100 grams of apple provides the same amount of antioxidant activity as taking 1,500 milligrams of the same vitamin.
The use:
1. For people who suffer from gout and rheumatism, eat apple regularly because it will aid healing
2. Eating 2 apples a day will reduce your cholesterol level up to 10 %3. Drinking an apple juice
3 times a day, is said to prevent virus from settling in the body.
4. Another benefit of apple is for those who have problem with their stomach. If you have problem with indigestion, eat apples before meals.
5. Grated apple, when mixed with live yogurt may be helpful in cases of diarrhea

Hello….do you like to see rainbow after raining???If you like it, I think you absolutely want to know more about it right??…Below is an article about rainbow…hope you all will enjoy read that article
Rainbows are optical illusion and meteorological phenomena that cause a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the Sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the earth’s atmosphere. They take the form of a multicolored arc, with red on the outer part of the arch and violet on the inner section of the arch. More rarely, a secondary rainbow is seen, which is a second, fainter arc, outside the primary arc, with colors in the opposite order, that is, with violet on the outside and red on the inside.

A rainbow spans a continuous spectrum of colors. Traditionally, however, the sequence quantized. The most commonly cited and remembered sequence, in English, is Newton’s sevenfold red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet."
Rainbows can be caused by other forms of water than rain, including mist, spray, dew, fog, and ice. Moreover, rainbows can have shapes other than a bow (arc), including stripes, circles, or even flames.

What is a butterfly?
Butterflies are the adult flying stage of certain insects belonging to an order or group called Lepidoptera. Moths also belong to this group. The word "Lepidoptera" means "scaly wings" in Greek. This name perfectly suits the insects in this group because their wings are covered with thousands of tiny scales overlapping in rows. The scales, which are arranged in colorful designs unique to each species, are what give the butterfly its beauty.
Like all other insects, butterflies have six legs and three main body parts: head, thorax (chest or mid section) and abdomen (tail end). They also have two antennae and an exoskeleton.
The difference between a butterfly and a moth?
Both butterflies and moths belong to the same insect group called Lepidoptera. In general, butterflies differ from moths in the following ways:
(1) Butterflies usually have clubbed antennae but moths have fuzzy or feathery antennae.
(2) Butterflies normally are active during the daytime while most moths are active at night.
(3) When a butterfly rests, it will do so with its wings held upright over its body. Moths, on the other hand, rest with their wings spread out flat. Butterflies will, however, bask with their wings out-stretched.(4) Butterflies are generally more brightly colored than moths; however, this is not always the case. There are some very colorful moths.

in my life ...
I could not have been dealt a better group of girlfriends.
They have always been there for me.
To offer love, support, hugs, encouragement and an occasional reality check.
Which I am positive I needed.They are all bright, giving and caring women.

We have such little time on this earth so I didn't want to pass up the opportunityto tell them how *special* they have made my journey through this rough and tumble ride we call life.
Because of them I am a better person.
Although not one of them would take any credit for anything they have done.
I have know these women more than half my life.
And I lQQk forward to many many more years to come.
So to the following *Friends* I have this to say please take cares and gQQd luck all Qf U...

Okay…speaking is an important means of communicating knowledge and expressing ideas. It is a primary medium of representing ideas Long time ago...I hate to speak in English. because when it is the time for me to speech and presents something, I still cannot do it well and another thing that always runs in my mind on that time is I think I look very weird and horrible when I speak. But, I want to share something with you all what my teacher have shared with me….may be some of you have face the same thing like me before this….
so these are some tips from her to me...
1) Overcome nervous
Most people feel a little nervous when making a speech, especially when it is their first time right??So you can overcome it with a lot of practice. You also need to focus on what you are about to deliver.
2) Posture
This refers to the way you hold your body while standing or sitting. It is best not to look too stiff but to appear alert yet relaxed.
3) Facial expressions and gestures
Begin your speech with a smile as the given an impression of friendliness. Then gestures can help in conveying your message. Use them in moderation to add vitally to your speech
4) Eye contact
eye contact with the audience is also important. Try to have an eye contact with the audience at least 50% of the time. However, do not look at one person for more than a few seconds as this is mostly viewed as an act of aggression.

Global warming.....

What do you understand about it???

Is it when the earth become warm and hot we can directly assume it as global warming??

Ha...actually 'Global warming ' is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth's near-surface air and oceans since the mid-twentieth century.The average global air temperature near the Earth's surface increased during the hundred years ending in 2005. The Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) concludes that "most of the observed increase in globally averaged temperatures since the mid-twentieth century is very likely due to the observed increase in greenhouse gas concentrations via an enhanced greenhouse effect. Natural phenomena such as solar variation combined with volcanoes probably had a small warming effect from pre-industrial times to 1950 and a small cooling effect from 1950 onward.

While the effect of increasing global temperature is expected to cause sea level to rise, an increase in the intensity of extreme weather events, and significant changes to the amount and pattern of precipitations. Others are expected effects of global warming include changes in agricultural yields, modifications of trade routes, animals extinctions and increases in the ranges of disease vectors.

Remaining scientific uncertainties include the amount of warming expected in the future, and how warming and related changes will vary from region to region around the globe. Most national governments have signed and ratified the Kyoto Protocol aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, but there is on going political and public debate worldwide regarding what, if any, action should be taken to reduce or reverse future warming or to adapt to its expected consequences.

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

So, from that article I would like all of you try to feel and imagine how is our life in the future due to the increasing of Global Warming in the world now......please my frenz.....
