Ten Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientificclinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sittingin our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this articlewith the following:
1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causeslong term - permanent - brain damage by "shorting out"electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing thebrain tissue].
2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknownby-products created in microwaved food.
3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered bycontinually eating microwaved foods.
4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [longterm, permanent] within the human body.
5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food isreduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit,or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be brokendown.
6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous freeradicals when cooked in microwave ovens.
7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths[tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate ofcolon cancer in America.
8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells toincrease in human blood.
9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune systemdeficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.
10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration,emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.
Have you tossed out your microwave oven yet?

Tsunami toll crosses 1,50,000, Indonesia battles

The United Nation says the number of people killed by the tsunami is nearing 1,50,000 and the exact figures may never be known. "The vast majority of those are in Indonesia and Aceh, which is the least assessed area because of logistical constraints," said UN emergency relief coordinator Jan Egeland."We will never, ever have the absolute, definite figure because there are many nameless fishermen and villages that have just gone, and we have no chance of finding out how many they were," he added. The world body said $1.2 billion has been pledged in aid so far for the nearly five million survivors.

Hot Debates !!!!! The Tehelkaha Style !!!

The Tehelka style of investigative journalism has brought about a change in the way we look at news, amidst new notions of editorial freedom. There is no denying the fact that a sting operation is by far the most effective way of exposing the truth.With a society and a system of governance that defies transparency, the doubting public demands credible proof. Being 'caught in an act' on camera leaves little scope for evasive answers by those who shamelessly manipulate the system for vested interests.Public figures are often reminded that they have nothing to hide from the public, which has a right to know everything. The stinging truth however, is the easy conscience with which corruption is tolerated and allowed to plague the political system.
Newsgathering acquired a new meaning with Tehelka's 'Operation West End', which left the common man with deep revulsion for the political system and contempt for those in the defence establishment who are willing to trade national interest for vested interests.
Also the argument that it is virtually impossible to discover the real state of affairs through normal ways of investigation deserves a fair hearing. The most explosive sting by Tehelka in recent times is the one, exposing the twists behind the Best Bakery case.Zaheera Sheikh, who has become a symbol of the Gujarat carnage has been continuously changing her testimony in the case. The Tehelka tapes allege that Zaheera was paid Rs 18 lakh by a BJP MLA.The startling revelation has led the judiciary to now examine the possibility of a dubious deal.
But the fact remains that there is only so much that the press can endeavour to do. It cannot punish the guilty nor can it command accountability from those occupying positions of power.
Think about it !!!

After the tsunami shock, it's time to pick up the pieces

waves recede, leaving behind the dead and the devastated. The newspapers and television channels have taken over, assaulting us with over 70,000 words and images of information and strident compassion. After sifting through the debris, the flaying arms and the silences, what do we presume? Situated perhaps miles away from the scene of disaster, we want to reach out to the tsunami victims but cannot understand how. It will not take very long for tsunami to drop off the front pages and breaking news slots. And, that's inevitable — after all, life has to go on. Grief and mourning when prolonged only reinforce the passive in us. But will our response be determined by how media looks at time? Disasters are no longer an aberration in our country — we are visited by cyclones, quakes, floods and droughts with a regularity that leaves us eerily numb.Trapped in our atomised existence, we need to work out new ways of relating to communities in crisis. That entails new ways of defining ourselves, so that we can encompass other cultures and geographies within us.
But right now the need of the hour is to identify areas of practical help that can be extended to the victims of the catastrophe. The first of these, of course, is raising much needed funds to provide food, shelter and medicine to the afflicted. But it should be understood that much though it is needed, money is only a beginning. Unless it is usefully and appropriately spent, it can only add to the chaos instead of mitigating it.

Giant waves wreak havoc across Asian region

The giant killer waves that swept the coasts of South and South East Asia have added a new word to the global lexicon of disaster: tsunami. Not one but two undersea earthquakes occurring within hours of each other caused huge volumes of displaced water to hurl themselves at shores as far as 2,000 km away. The toll of the disaster — which is still to be tallied fully — is stupefying: over 70,000 dead in South Asia, including 10,000 in India. The economic losses might take years to compute. The truly fearsome aspect of the disaster is that it was totally unpredictable. So little is known about catastrophic phenomena like tsunamis that it is virtually impossible for governments or populations to take precautionary action. It is as though our planet, which we so take for granted in our exploitation of it, suddenly shows us that it has an unimaginably immense will of its own, which reduces all our scientific knowledge to a cypher.
We know very little of what makes our planet tick. Though earthquakes are commonplace — every day a couple take place somewhere in the world — we don't know what causes them, particularly if they are underwater quakes. As Richard Feynman says: "We understand... the interior of the sun far better than we understand the interior of the earth". It was not till 1936 that we learnt that our planet has two cores, an inner and an outer. How the two react against each other, and with what repercussions, we have no idea. Volcanoes are common, but even experts are caught unawares by them.Forget nations, our entire species might not survive such a cataclasmic giga-event — which for our planet is but a twitch of its skin. Such stupendous forces beyond conception can inspire only awe. And ultimate humility in the face of a mysterious creation which, to make itself complete, must inevitably contain the seeds of its own eventual dissolution.
