Hey People are you putting on weight.Reason is not just the Junk foods you eat you can now put blame on your genes.Researches say that Obesity is Pre-Programmed in your Body this was said after the Scientists took samples and tested–>They Identified Six new genes which Predispose their carriers to becoming heavily fleshy.The Genes actually cause carriers to eat more rather than affect body’d ability to process fat.This research was carried out by taking the Genes of more than 90,000 people.And finally they Zeroed out on some 6 Genes.

This company has the credit of having developed the first diode device back in 80’s,it is now to be a Lynchpin in the Organic Light Emitting Diode Market.Kodak is planning to Uncover the world’s first/largest Photo Frame of 7.6 inches and it is called OLED Photo Frame.And there was also a Buzzing around the market on its Price—>It is a bit costly affair–It costs around 1000$ and it is considered to be the Status Symbol in the international market at that price.
Features Offered by this new entrant:
It has some special attributes like it has a very Good/Brilliant colour and a sharp image of 800×480 pixels(to be accurate) on a very slim OLED Panel which has a contrast ratio of 30000:1.The one Disadvantage with this Photo Frame is it is not very advanced–After two or three years it is going to be a herald–It has just made an entry to the market.Some of the disadvantages or say the features not supported are the WiFi Panel connects to Flickr or say to Kodak’s Own Video Hosting Website but will not transfer images from Macs direct to the Frame..Mac Users may have to move to some other Options like USB Drives,SD Cards etc.. as they cannot do a direct transfer.The frame is touch-sensitive and it has also two jacks for Audio I/p and Audio O/p

SCIENTISTS have now discovered the genetic puzzle that helps plants beat the heat it is really a great development that could allow plant breeders to create new varieties of crops that flourish in warmer,drier climates—this was not there for the mankind previously lets see whether we use this technology to full effect.It was told by one of the spokesman of the Scientist crew and was published in the ‘Proceedings of National Academy of sciences’,and the Main Line was —discovered the genetic puzzle that controls plant response to high temperature.American scientists at the michigan state university found that the gene bZIP28 helps regulate heat stress response in Arabidopsis thaliana—-it is a member of the mustard family used as a model plant for genetic studies.
The Scientists also unveiled a rare phenomenon exhibited by bZIP28 —>Robert Larkin lead author of the paper said that bZIP28 is also responding to the signals from the Endoplasmic Reticulum–(a eukaryote whose cell assembly is complex,the feature of ER is it forms a interconnected network of tubules within the cells).So finally the reserach has come to a phase where people could create new varities of plants that can grow in particular seasons.I am sure that if some more work is put into thought we could save the universe and people of the universe in many ways.Like creating a hybrid variety that would give you food for 5 days in a month or say it doesn’t dried up quickly.This will help the mankind for sure as they can rely can rely on these for the rest of their life if something like creating a hybrid variety results in a success

Versatile Cost Cutting is going to prove effective and this will be itching the minds various companies now-What is an Effective Cost Cutting measure?????
Posted by seshdotcom on December 28, 2008
Each company have their own way of reducing costs and most of the US companies are said to handle this cost cutting measures very effectively.If the times are difficult.Some of the Indian Banks have also started implementing the cost cutting measures like the Kotak Mahindra Bank,State Bank of India and many other famous firms.And the Kotak Mahindra Bank has named this Cost Cutting Campaign as “Kill Bill”.Some of the cost cutting techniques they have adopted is Work at a Particular temperature don’t go very low because that may take a toll on Air Conditioners and it helps in reducing elextricity bills and don’t spill coffee when you take from the Vending machine,Keep the Monitors Switched Off when not in use,Many of the measures are also taken by other banks like SBI and HDFC they have an idea on cutting down the costs related to courier and Posts.
It was also explained why??—>HDFC banks get 20,000 to 25,000 new accounts for every 25 days,The cost of sending a Welcome Kit through Courier costs around 40 rupees.This amount was calculated and it comes around 6 lac and if it is going to be sent by email it will save this 6 lacs.So if clients agree to receive the contract over the email,there is obviously a remarkable savings done.So all the companies have become aware of the Eco”nemesis” and they are taking measures to not get drowed in this Gutter.Hope that it will get over soon and Economy returns to normal life soon.

The world’s most ill-famed pair of black leather shoes,that made history,has even generated 100 jobs in Turkey.The pair of shoes that robbed and made Bush mortified of his dignity and landed its owner—>Iraqi Journalist Muntazer al-zaidi in prison,has yielded an unexpected bonanza for its proprietor
How it created Jobs????
The incident took place some days ago and there was a Great Fan club sort of thing Generating for this shoe and after sometime the owner of the Istanbul-based Baydan shoe company,has been Overwhelmed with orders for shoes all around the Globe.This Brand of shoe became famous because this was used to hit Mr.Bush–Said one of the Fan.And to manage and deliver the Overwhelming orders Baydan has recruited an additional 100 staff to meet orders for about 3 lac shoes of that particular model(model 271) which is actually much much higher than that footwears’ annual sale

Doctors say Stem Cells are Building Blocks of life or in other words all in the functions in body are done only with the help of these stem cells.They have mythical Powers of transforming themselves to any kind of tissue in the Body like say the tissue of Heart,Skin or any other internal Organ in our body.They are found in almost all Multi Cellular Organisms.It has ability to renew themselves in case of any loss and the scientific term for this Property is called Mitotic cell division. There are two types of stem cells found in Living Organisms one is embryonic stem cells and the other one is called Adult Stem cells.These cells can be got from embroys,umblical cord blood,and even from a persons Body.
Stem cell Therapy:
The stem cell theraphy has become very simpler nowadays that no major surgery is required.In most of the treatment techniques these cells are infiltrated(Imbued or say Pass or say Inject into Body) directly into the patient’s body.Scientists have also got the best of ethical question of creating an Embryo to extract stem cells and then destroy it by using therapeutic cloning process.
Stem cell research in India:
We cannot deny that fact that India was bit slower in this research to start but it has immense potential.The doctors have also treated several disorders like neurological,cardiac and even some Blood Pressure an d Diabetes using this special kind of theraphy.These cells are cryopreserved(Stored in Liquid Nitrogen at -270 degree Celsisus).
This has now become a very advanced technique and sure India will excel in this field.India has rich brains which are able to make many IT companies running and I am sure that Medical Industry will also become the same.

Could Breaking Ships become an Industry???Yes Indeed,This new industry is all about recovering steel by dismantling it.It all started way back in 1979.As a result the Ship breaking Yards in Alang Mumbai developed.It is really surprising to believe that there were about 200-250 ship breaking Plots and it was also said that it is one of the largest of the Ship Breaking Industry and largest in world dismantling by breaking apart about 450-490 ships each year.It has a turnover about 7000-7500 Crores and has approximately 0.5 Lac Workers working on the Ship Breaking Tasks.
BlackPrints on Atmosphere:
The ship building industry is a very good industry to have bu it has also some disfavors it is a great Pollutant to the Atmosphere—-The disacharge and emissions of toxic materials to sea,sediments,Grounds and air cause acute and long-term pollution.The careless Discharge of the Oil into the sea has left many of the aquatic living Organisms in Lurches and it has not only made them change their Shelter but has also resulted in deaths of many marine Organisms.
The Environmental Committee and the “Go Green” Committee are figuring out measures to make this “Profitable” and Hazardous industry less Hazardous

LA LAKERS had a last moment of victory and a defeat as well in the NBA(US National Basketball Association) title clash.In 1966 they had a very sad loss against to Boston Celtics going down 1-3,Lakers then held to Boston and beat celtics twice to enforce the seventh game.Celtics beat Lakers 93-95 for their eighth consecutive title.And it was Lakers’s fourth consecutive loss to celtics in final
Lakers Bounce back in 1988:
But all of a sudden in the year 1988 all of the rancor and fire the Lakers had were proving to be working well for the Lakers.Initially they were 2-3 down to the Detroit Pistons but in Game Six,they came back from a three point deficit with Just a Minute to go for the final Judgement Bell.With Two Free throws “The Spire Man of Basketball”–Kareem Abdul jabbar took them ahead and won 103-102 with 14 seconds left in the Game(It would have been a real nailbiter I tell you).And in Game seven,James Worthy’s superb performance(36 Points) brought Victory for Lakers 108-105.Kareem Abdul Jabbar has also won NBA Most Valuable Player award when he was at the top of his game.
