ONCE UOPN A TIME IN CHENNAI-FLOOD IN MMDA







Who would have imagined that in a metro like ours things would have gotten out of control this quick. Submerged rail tracks, roads and the entire transportation system has been partly paralyzed. Why did it happen? A deep depression, in the Bay of Bengal, is believed to be the primary reason for these incessant rains . It has thrown life out of gear for most of the people. If this is the condition of the most developed city in this state, one could imagine what kind of a fate the rural population must be subjected to.Why hasn't the government taken effective measures to combat this situation when its not something that was not expected. Don't you remember the rains of 2005 (Thanks to those rains, our 3rd semester exams were postponed). This picture was taken back then.Jokes apart!! This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed asap. The government which is supposed to be implementing the so called "disaster relief" plans is happier drafting out proposals to ask the central government for funds(god knows where these funds go)I had to go to pay my phone bill, but with the terrible condition of the road decided to pay the fine than get into trouble even though the rains stopped for some time. Reason being the roads which have been submerged in water and the uneven pot holes which could result in an accident on a bright sunny day, leave alone a rainy day.Just blaming the government will not do though, we need to take initiative!!! How, that's for you to decide.

SAND ARTS











By piling, digging, carving and hollowing out this common element, turning it into mythical scenes and fairytale figures, sand sculptors have turned the art of carving in sand into a new trend in many big cities.


Known as a modern art for only 20 years, sand sculpting is a popular and recreational art capable of drawing widespread attention from the public. Sand sculptures can create new tourist programmes wherever they go, bringing in considerable commercial profits. From this point of view, the art is the result of the perfect combination of modern art and modern commerce and is closely linked with tourism. For the last 20 years, this symbiosis has greatly promoted the development of sand sculptures around the world.Sand sculptures can now be found in more than 100 countries and regions, especially in popular coastal cities. Sand sculptures have become one of the most popular itineraries during sea visits. Meanwhile, the art has also spread to the inland cities.
Over the past few years, the art has aroused widespread interest in Asia -- with Japan, Singapore and China as hosts to various sand sculpture contests. With the launch of the International Colored Sand Sculpture Festival in Yunnan Province , China, the art is also becoming richer in content. Instant-Disintegrating Art
Sand and seawater are the basic materials for sand sculptures, which are molded into various patterns by digging, carving and hollowing out sand. Sand sculptures contain no chemical adhesives. Once a piece of the sculpture is completed, a special glue-water solution is sprayed over the surface to set the sculpture. Normally, the sculpture can be preserved for several months. Since it is not easy to preserve sand sculptures, which disintegrate over a period of time, the art form is also known as "instant-disintegrating art". Sand sculpting is also a kind of land art that blends with nature and without emitting any pollutants. Sand sculptures, unlike most traditional sculptures, are admired for their large scale.
Sand sculpting is also a marginal art -- an amalgamation of the elements of sculpting, painting, construction and outdoor recreation. Requiring no professional training, the art can be taken up by anyone. Sand sculpting is known as a fashionable, healthy and exciting programme for leisure and entertainment purposes.

ARTFIRE

Hi everyone! I want to share with you a new site called handmade gifts. It's mostly for handmade items, like etsy, but there's also sections for design, and for supplies/vintage. They have some pretty cool features that are different from etsy, and once the site gets going (it's still in beta now) I think it is going to be Fabulous!!Best part about it? They're offering $7.00/mo verified memberships for the first 5000 people that sign up. Seven dollars a month. That's it. That's 23 cents a day. That's the same is it costs to list or relist one item per day on etsy (about). My etsy bill is usually about $30 to $40 per month. So seven is a GREAT deal! There are no listing or transaction fees. Just the one monthly.

MEN ATTACK SHARKS EXTINCTION


Remember the movie jaws and the signature tune that accompanied the visual of the fast moving dorsal fin that would disappear every time a swimmer was turned into lunch?
in actual fact,it is sharks,like every other spices,which are under threat from humans and not the other way around.A search on google with words "shark attacks"returned 763,000 hits whereas the search words "shark extinction"revealed 963,000 hits.This is rough stasticts is an indicator that the extinction of the species is generating more concern than its mythical viciousness,finally.
There is also the question oh how and why shark attacks occur and weather sometimes they  might be foolishly provoked.sometime in April 2008,66 year old David martin was swimming off the coasts of San Diego.California when 16-foot great white shark attacked and killed him.he was wearing a shiny suit and the shark mistook him for a seal.The entire stretch of beach was closed signs were posted regular intervals warning people stay out of water.
The shark population which was first record 200 years ago,has come down in the Mediterranean by 97 percent.out of the 21 major species of open -water sharks in the world,all but two are facing extinction.Sharks are a critical part of the marine food chain and to slaughter them.endangers the one simple thing you can do to save these magnificent creatures.Never order shark fin soup and always object to the restaurant management for having it on the menu.

School is the second place ,after home,where the foundation of an individual is laid.for 12 years one's life revolves within the walls and playground of the school forming the foundation of some happy memories in later life.

remember that the difference between school and home,for example,your home has you and your siblings doing things the way you want.on the other hand school is the abode of many ,all of whom if allowed to be in disciplined could possible cause chaos.
school teaches you that "no man is an island"if we all stand together,shoulder to shoulder we can achieve great heights.pay attention it class.in case of a doubt ,raise your hand and ask the teachers.avoid bringing distraction,crackers,marbles and toys.why the six hours spent here mutt have a balance between studies,games and fun,follow the schedule and make sure you are geared fop each class.happy schooling.

BIRD HOUSES

I was sitting on the couch yesterday and happened to look out the window. There were a bunch of birds at our bird feeder, probably 3 or 4 chickadees. I love those little birds. They are so cute. There is something about birds that I love, not sure what, but I know I love them. I even had two pet birds for a long time, for about 10 years. I would love to have a bird again. I decided a long time ago though that I would not have anymore caged pets, so I will have to settle for my outside bird friends..

I would love to get a really nice bird feeder. The one we have now is just a cheap little thing that I bought at the hardware store. I would love to get something from the Bird Houses Outlet Shop.  They have some really nice things, that any bird would love. Maybe I will get them a bird house to go along with the new bird feeder.. Oh boy! Now I'm treating the outside birds like pets. Oh well, I love them and they provide a lot of entertainment in the summer. So I don't see a problem with it..Ten steps from our backyard is a mountain with a lot of trees, so there's a a lot of birds flying around in our backyard. Sometimes we gave them food like corn grains and other stuff. I just wish that we have a bird house and feeder so we could put the food inside it and not on the ground. If you go and shop with them now, you will be able to avail their 10 to 30 percent discount offer that will end today. So you still have 23 hours to take advantage of their great deals. You don't have to worry about the security in shopping with them online. They also sellBird Houses Outlet Shop accessories and bird books. So if you want to give your favorite pet birds a treat, visit birdhousesoutletshop.com.

A STICKY LIZARDS


Have you ever wondered how lizards defy gravity every day as they climb up and down the walls and run across the ceiling?.if you have,then you're not alone.Researchers have for years wondered how lizards stick on surfaces,no matter how smooth and the days they have collected has a whole host of information about the spiders,frogs,flies and other sticky wall-crawlers..in fact thisResearchers could "inspire a new generation"of super-sticky materials,with applications from medicine to engineering .
people have been fascinating by lizards and their ability to walk upside down as long ago as during the time of the philosopher Aristotle.Scientist however,came on the scene with their enquires some 150 years ago but they still had trouble cracking this secret.At first they thought that the crawlers like these may have some kind of glue coating on their feet many insects produce a gooey substance that allows them to stick to waxy leaves.But lizards do not leave behind stick tracks,so this theory was rules out.to first significant clue came just a few years ago.And it had to do with a millions of fine hairs or sate on the bottom of the lizard's feet.when a single hair was looked at nuder a special microscope,it was found that it could have hundreds of bristles.scientist also found that the hairs were not sticky by themselves and that it all depends on how the creatures moved"simple pushing the sate onto the surface and dragging them forward a tiny bit made them stick.
so as researches continues with scientist working towards making better versions of lizards tape,with plenty of exciting applications in mind,who knows one day you may also be able to hang out on the ceiling of your home for a short while!.

OSCAR PARTY

Hosting a party for friends or going over to a friend's place for a party is hardly a formal occasion.It is comfortable company and the atmosphere is more relaxed yet,some rules of etiquette apply .As a host/hostess one needs to follow certain guidelines which will help in maintaining and strengthening the bond of friendship.Discuss with your friends the date and time of the party keeping in mind their availability and convenience.Whether it’s Oscar time or not, it’s always a good time to have an Oscar party. Everyone loves the movies and there is no award show like the Academy Awards to see the glamour brigade turn out on the red carpet. Have a party and let everyone feel like a star for the night! The Oscars are the night everyone in tinsel town is dressed to the hilt, and you shouldn’t have to wait for one night in a year to go wild.

An Oscar party is great for teens or adults – it’s easy and absolutely the most glam you can get! Print up invites with the famous gold statuette on it and write with a gold or silver marker on them. Make sure the dress code is formal, in fact, make it black tie. Guests can even dress up as their favourite actors or actresses if they wish. Dress in your best clothes and wear plenty of big crystal earrings and bracelets or a tux. If you can get a large cut out of the Oscar statue, put that in the doorway or the foyer.

Pull out the red carpet and let your guests make a splashy entrance to your Oscar party. Give a little nephew or neighbor a few dollars and a disposable camera to take paparazzi shots of your guests as they walk up the red carpet. Food should be very classy – platters of hors d’oeuvres and plenty of wine, or for the teenagers, cider or sodas in disposable wine goblets. You don’t have to do much with the d├ęcor, a lot of well-dressed people are enough to impress any guest!

Why not host an Oscar party for your next special occasion? The theme is fairly easy to adapt to your guests and setting, and the night will no doubt be one to remember.

RONALDO NOW,MESSI NEXT



Cristiano Ronald's trophy cabinet is now full after he nailed the fifa player of the year award last week.He missed out on a Nobel.The Manchester united ace would have stood a chance in the inventor category.But a  Peace prize is out of question because Ronald is not exactly a dove.An Oscar for best acting would not be a bizarre as the Portuguese is one a of the best contemporary con artistes on a football Field.On a serious note,Ronald richly deserves all the accolades that have come his way.He was the best player in the world last season by some distance.There was little excitement about the fif poll among national coaches and captain to choose the winner .it was given that the name would be Ronald.

Ronald has the knack of making news even when he endures an off-day on the pitch.His series of affairs with hangers -on and models is a staple diet of the tabloids.if he is not preforming and off the field,trust him to hit the headlines through his dalliance with real Madrid.If the Spanish aristocrats publicly end their manic pursuit of the res Devil,he grabs attention by crashing his two-day old Ferrari into mangles mass.Ronald is the Shane warn of football.

NFL FOOTBALL

There seems almost too much to write about for the upcoming weekend of We’ve got the Arizona Cardinals clinching the NFC West for the first time in…possibly ever; The New York Giants returning to the playoffs to defend their well-deserved title; Chad Pennington (former Jets QB, ousted by the arrival of Brett Favre) and his Miami Dolphins clinching the AFC East, one year after their 1-15 record; the return of the Steel Curtain for the Pittsburgh Steelers; two rookie QBs leading NFL football their teams into the playoffs (Ravens, Falcons); and two last second qualifiers in the Chargers and Eagles, each of which seemed definitely out of the playoffs only a month ago. With all of this huge storylines that have potential for growth, the postseason and Super Bowl are definitely going to be interesting. Just for the hell of it though, I say Ravens versus Giants. Winner TBD.

One day after the end of the NFL season, several teams have decided that they need to of their coaches. One of the more surprising coaches to lose his job is Eric Mangini, who managed the New York Jets. He has led them to several winning seasons in past years, but the team went 1-4 in the last 5 games of the season, losing the AFC East title to the Dolphins. The Dolphins NFL football are piloted by Chad Pennington, who was QB for the Jets for several years and was cut when Brett Favre came on the scene. Other teams that fired their head coaches are the Detroit Lions and the Cleveland Browns, neither of which are big surprises, given the final result of the season for those two.

Bryant Gumbel has announced that he would not return to the NFL Network as play by play announcer for the pre-season and eight game regular season package of NFL games. This statement has been confirmed by the NFL Network as well.

Sources further added that Gumbel on air game calling following his first season has resulted in NFL football Network’s displeasure. They were dissatisfied but did not take action prior to last season. To date, Gumbel has never had play by play announcing experience before his stint at NFL Network.

NFL Network president and CEO Steve Bornstein was neutral about the whole drama, saying that “We appreciate everything Bryant did in helping us launch our NFL Network game telecasts. Bryant helped create an interest in our first foray into televising NFL regular season games.”

However, Gumbel’s partner, Cris Collinworth, gets to keep his job as color commentator. The latest update is that NFL Network is voraciously seeking Gumbel’s replacement. Gumbel is also host of HBO Channel’s Real Sports segment.

LANDSCAPE LIGHT

When you landscape your yard, you usually have a vision in your mind of what you want it to look like when you’re done. When you include lighting in this vision, it really can turn into art and be beautiful. It also shows people how much thought and work you’ve put into your outdoor living space.You can use landscape lighting in many ways and every homeowner will choose something different to fit their style and taste. It can be wired to your home so you can turn it on and off at will or it can be solar-powered and come on automatically in the night. Spot lighting is the most common form of landscape lighting and can highlight things like waterfalls, flowering shrubs, walkways and more. Rope lighting is another popular choice, as it usually doesn’t require any special wiring and will just plug into an outlet and begin working. It’s also very versatile and allows you to put it in, around, or over objects and plants.Highlighting your favorite part of your yard’s landscape (which may, in itself, be hard to choose) can greatly increase your enjoyment of your yard. It can also ad a whole new dimension to your landscape’s form, allowing another, new enjoyment as the night life in your yard is opened up to you.
