Chinese Antivirus Company Busted Creating Viruses

Chinese Antivirus Companies Create the Viruses They Kill

A well-placed Chinese security official has been given a suspended death sentence for taking bribes in exchange for his role in an antivirus software fraud scheme. 
Yu Bing, former director of the Internet monitoring department of Beijing’s Public Security Bureau, had his agency send out a “virus warning” telling the public to download software from the company Rising Antivirus, to combat a particular computer virus.
But that virus was itself devised by Rising Antivirus, who bribed Yu to send out an email to drum up business, according to a Dec. 2 First Financial Daily report.

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO)

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) is a spacecraft that is currently investigating the entire Sun, from the core to the outer corona and the solar wind.The spacecraft is build by a European industrial consortium led by Matra Marconi Space (now Astrium) that was launched on a Lockheed Martin Atlas IIAS launch vehicle on December 2, 1995 to study the Sun, and has discovered 1900 comets. It began normal operations in May 1996. It is a joint project of international cooperation between the European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA. Originally planned as a two-year mission, SOHO currently continues to operate after over ten years in space. In October 2009, a mission extension lasting until December 2012 was approved. 
The 610 kg SOHO spacecraft is in a halo orbit around the Sun-Earth L1 point, the point between the Earth and the Sun where the balance of the (larger) Sun's gravity and the (smaller) Earth's gravity is equal to the centripetal force needed for an object to have the same orbital period in its orbit around the Sun as the Earth, with the result that the object will stay in that relative position.

Simply The BEST


Reptile tamer Peter Morningstar has some trouble with a ten foot carpet snake. Peter was called to remove the 15 lb monster from a roof in Brisbane, Australia. The snake turned nasty and sunk its fangs in his face. That's one way to remove a snake. I know Australians can be tough, but I might have tried some other tools first. Luckily the python is nonvenomous and usually kills by squeezing its prey to death.

Renault DeZir- An Electric Beauty With 150 HP

DeZir is powered by an electric motor mounted in a mid-rear position to optimize weight distribution over the front and rear wheels. The vertically-mounted 24kW/h lithium-ion battery is located behind the benchseat and provides the car with a range of 160km.
The basic motor is the same as the unit used for Renault's production electric cars, although an evolution has enabled its power and torque to be uprated to 110kW (150hp) and 226Nm respectively.

Three battery-charging methods can be employed: 
- a standard charge using a conventional household plug (fully charges the battery in eight hours).
- a fast charge using a 400V three-phase current (charges the battery to 80 per cent of its capacity in 20 minutes).
- a fast battery exchange thanks to Renault's Quick Drop technology. 
In order to optimise range and dynamic performance, Renault Design's technical teams have kept DeZir's weight to a minimum: its body is made from Kevlar®, while its tubular steel frame is similar to that employed for Mégane Trophy race car. 
DeZir's aerodynamics have been carefully honed, too, thanks to full underbody fairing and a rear diffuser. The result of this work is a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.25, as well as outstanding acceleration, with DeZir capable of accelerating from rest to 100kph in five seconds, and from standstill to 50kph in just two seconds.

TURKEY-People As Young As 18 To Own Up To Five Guns!

Noting that the ‘only purpose of a gun is to kill,’ Nazire Dedeman, head of the Umut Foundation, an NGO working for individual disarmament, says she cannot understand how Turkish parliamentarians are planning to liberalize the country’s gun laws. Laws allowing people as young as 18 to own up to five guns is entirely irresponsible, Dedeman says.
A prospective Turkish bill that would lower the minimum age for firearms possession to 18 and make owning a gun easier is inexplicable, according to the head of a nongovernmental association that campaigns for individual disarmament.
“In our country especially the percentage of youngsters between 15 and 25 who commit suicide is quite high,” said Nazire Dedeman, head of the Umut Foundation. “The risk continues up to the age of 35. Between the ages of 25 and 30 deaths from firearms reach their highest level.”
Death rates from gun usage could thus skyrocket, according to Dedeman, who added that parliamentarians might also be preparing to grant people the right to possess upward of four or five guns.
He said the Umut Foundation especially opposes the draft because it contains no central data bank, no compulsory education certificate prior to obtaining the license, no license investigation and no automatic cancellation system.

DNA is Influenced By Our Words and Frequencies?

Our DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies according to Russian research. The human DNA is a biological Internet and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. The latest Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light/auras around people (namely spiritual masters), the mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more.
In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies WITHOUT cutting out and replacing single genes.
Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being examined and categorized. The other 90% are considered "junk DNA." The Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb, joined linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore those 90% of "junk DNA". Their results, findings and conclusions are simply revolutionary!
According to them, our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body but also serves as data storage and communication.

Israeli foreign minister: Peace is 'impossible'

The Associated Press

Israel's foreign minister said Sunday a peace deal with the Palestinians is impossible under current conditions and that Israel should pursue a lesser deal instead — a concept the Palestinians swiftly rejected.
The latest diplomatic spat between the two sides came as violence along the Israel-Gaza border simmered. After days of accelerated Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israel and Israeli airstrikes in response, Israeli soldiers killed two Palestinians on the border early Sunday.
Avigdor Lieberman, the Israeli foreign minister, told a conference of Israeli diplomats that instead of a full peace deal, Israel should seek a long-term, interim agreement on security and economic matters. Palestinians have consistently rejected that approach.
"It's not only that it is impossible" to reach an overall agreement, he said. "It is simply forbidden."

Nasa Captures Stunning Images of The Far Side of The Moon (Photos)

These amazing pictures capture the moon’s cratered surface in the most intricate detail ever recorded.
The images, which were taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconaissance Orbiter (LRO), have boosted the resolution of images of the far side of the moon over 100 times.
Digital elevation and terrain maps based on the new data reveal the heavily cratered and bumpy surface of the moon in all its complexity.
Dr Gregory Neumann of NASA’S Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, said that digital elevation and terrain maps based on the new data ‘will be a fundamental reference for future scientific    and human exploration missions to the moon.’

Got a bad hangover? Try honey on toast!

This festive season, merriment will be aplenty, and so will be alcohol - but if you want to avoid that really bad feeling of nausea and headache the next morning try honey on toast, says a new study. The Royal Society of Chemistry claim that the natural sweetener is one of the best way to treat toxins in the body post-binge. 
It contains fructose, which can also be found in golden syrup, which is essential to help the body break down alcohol into harmless by-products.
"The happiness comes from alcohol. The hangover comes from acetaldehyde. This is the toxic chemical into which alcohol is converted by the body and it causes a throbbing headache, nausea, and maybe even vomiting," the Telegraph quoted Dr John Emsley of the Royal Society, as saying."The hangover disappears as the acetaldehyde is slowly converted to less toxic chemicals," he added.
Honey is also a source of potassium and sodium that helps fight the alcohol toxins.

Snow Falls in Atlanta After 129 Years!

The weekend brought a white Christmas for at least a good half of the state—areas far north and in the mountains got 6-8 inches of snow on Christmas Day. In metro Atlanta, it was the region’s first significant snowfall on Christmas in more than 129 years.It may be rare merry, white Christmas season in the Southeast portion of the country with snowfall – thanks to a low pressure system moving along the Gulf coast - headed for the Southeast and likely headed for the Mid-Atlantic states as well.
Some airlines have canceled hundreds of flights and have urged travelers to rethink their flying plans.
The last time there was measurable snowfall on Christmas Day in Atlanta was in 1881, when 1.6 inches of snow fell on the city. 

IBM Foresees 3D Holographic Mobile Calls by 2015

The latest research from computing giant IBM claims that consumers should be able to buy mobile phones by 2015 that will project small 3D holographic images of the person they are calling.
The latest future forecasting comes straight out of International Business Machines' Almaden Research Center campus in the Santa Teresa Hills of San Jose, California.
IBM also claims that, in addition to 3D holographic mobile calls, our mobile tablet PCs and laptops will be able to be powered by kinetic energy.

Saturn’s Hexagon May Be Solar System’s Coolest Mystery

A bizarre six-sided feature encircling the north pole of Saturn near 78 degrees north latitude has been spied by the visual and infrared mapping spectrometer on NASA's Cassini spacecraft. This image is one of the first clear images ever taken of the north polar region as seen from a unique polar perspective. 
The hexagon circles Saturn at 78 degrees north and is wider than two Earths. Nearly everything about the weather pattern is baffling. First, it’s unclear what causes the hexagon. Second, it’s bizarre that the jet stream would make such sharp turns. Earth’s atmospheric movements rarely display such geometric rigor.

New human species found in Siberia

Scientists say an entirely separate type of human identified from bones in Siberia co-existed and interbred with our own species.
The ancient humans have been dubbed Denisovans after the caves in Siberia where their remains were found.
There is also evidence that this group was widespread in Eurasia.
A study in Nature journal shows that Denisovans co-existed with Neanderthals and interbred with our species - perhaps around 50,000 years ago.
An international group of researchers sequenced a complete genome from one of the ancient hominins (human-like creatures), based on nuclear DNA extracted from a finger bone.

Why a whole orange is better for you

Eating an orange is much better for one’s health than simply taking vitamin C pills.A host of antioxidants in orange work together to retard ageing and possibly keep heart disease and cancer at bay, the Journal of Food Science reports.
Researchers at the Brigham Young University are squeezing all the healthy compounds out of oranges to find the right mixture responsible for their age-old health benefits.
The popular stocking stuffer is known for its vitamin C and blood-protecting antioxidants, but researchers wanted to learn why a whole orange is better for you than its components when taken separately.
“There’s something about an orange that’s better than taking a vitamin C capsule, and that’s really what we’re trying to figure out,” said Tory Parker of the BYU.
“We think it’s the particular mixture of antioxidants in an orange that makes it so good for you,” said Parker.

Η ζωή μας ξαναρχίζει μετά τα 46 μας χρόνια?

Η ευτυχία έρχεται µετά την κρίση της µέσης ηλικίας
Το σηµείο καµπής στη ζωή του ανθρώπου είναι τα 46 χρόνια. Σε αυτή την ηλικία βιώνει ο άνθρωπος την πιο βαθιά µελαγχολία. Αµέσως µετά αρχίζει το ταξίδι προς την ευτυχία. Το περιοδικό «Economist» αφιέρωσε το εξώφυλλό του σε αυτό το θέµα. ∆εν παραλείπει όµως να υπενθυµίσει την ατάκα του γάλλου ηθοποιού Μορίς Σεβαλιέ: «Τα γηρατειά δεν είναι και τόσο άσχηµα αν λάβουµε υπόψη µας την εναλλακτική λύση».
Οι κακόπιστοι θα µπορούσαν να υποθέσουν ότι το έγκυρο βρετανικό περιοδικό ήθελε απλώς να παρηγορήσει τους αναγνώστες του, ο µέσος όρος ηλικίας των οποίων είναι ακριβώς τα 46 χρόνια:εάν κάποιοι από αυτούς δεν αισθάνονται και πολύ καλά, τώρα ξέρουν ότι τα πράγµατα στο µέλλον θα γίνουν καλύτερα. Ο λόγος όµως δεν είναι αυτός. Στην πραγµατικότητα, ο «Economist» επιβεβαιώνει την τάση που κυριαρχεί τα τελευταία χρόνια στη Δύση: Χωρίς τη µέτρηση της Ακαθάριστης Εθνικής Ευτυχίας το Ακαθάριστο Εθνικό Προϊόν δεν έχει κανένα νόηµα.

Romanian flings himself from Parliament balcony

BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania's government survived a no-confidence motion in Parliament on Thursday in a session overshadowed by a man who flung himself from the chamber's balcony, apparently in protest over government budget cuts that had affected his family.
His injuries were not life-threatening. A thud reverberated in the chamber after the man, Adrian Sobaru — identified by the country's public television station as one of its engineers — jumped from a height of about 7 meters (23 feet).
He hit the benches shortly after Prime Minister Emil Boc greeted lawmakers. No one else was injured.
Boc looked startled and rushed over to Sobaru, along with other lawmakers, before Speaker Mircea Geoana briefly postponed the session.
Boc called the incident "a tragedy that shocked me," and appealed for calm "in these tough times."

Japan bio-scientists produce 'singing mouse'

TOKYO — Japanese scientists said Tuesday they had produced a mouse that tweets like a bird in a genetically engineered "evolution" which they hope will shed light on the origins of human language.
A team of researchers at the University of Osaka created the animal in their "Evolved Mouse Project", in which they use genetically modified mice that are prone to miscopying DNA and thus to mutations.
"Mutations are the driving force of evolution. We have cross-bred the genetically modified mice for generations to see what would happen," lead researcher Arikuni Uchimura told AFP.
"We checked the newly born mice one by one... One day we found a mouse that was singing like a bird," he said, noting that the "singing mouse" was born by chance but that the trait will be passed on to future generations.

The Case of The Fear-Free Brain

Spiders, snakes, and slasher flicks—even public speaking—failed to arouse feelings of terror in a woman whose amygdala was destroyed. She simply was unable to be afraid.
In examining the role of the amygdala, researchers observed and recorded a patient's responses during exposure to snakes and spiders (two of the most commonly feared animals), during a visit to one of the world's scariest haunted houses, and while watching a series of horror films. Across all of the scenarios, the patient failed to experience fear.
A case study of the patient—reported in the journal Current Biology—pinpoints the amygdala as fear central in the brain. The discovery could improve treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other anxiety conditions, say researchers.

Rare Event: Upcoming Full Moon to Align With Solstice

The upcoming Dec. 21 full moon — besides distinguishing itself from the others in 2010 by undergoing a total eclipse — will also take place on the same date as the solstice (the winter solstice if you live north of the equator, and the summer solstice if you live to the south).
Winter solstice is the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and marks the official beginning of winter. The sun is at its lowest in our sky because the North Pole of our tilted planet is pointing away from it.
So, how often does the December full moon coincide with the solstice? To answer this question, let's use Universal Time (UT), also sometimes referred to as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). We do this because in answering this question, it's important to define a specific time zone.

Cannabinoids Kill Cancer and Our Government Has Known for 36 Years?

Below is a repost of an article published on Americans for Safe Access website: in November of 2003. The article describes how cannabinoids, the active components of marijuana, inhibit tumor growth in laboratory animals and also kill cancer cells. Then it finishes off by saying that the US government has known for more than 35 years and that the media which would normally go crazy about a cancer cure story like this, doesn’t at all and in fact seem to be burying the story rather than promote it in any way. I for one am amazed at the government’s stance on marijuana and their failed war on drugs, which is more like a war on it’s own country. I guess too many people get rich off of the war on drugs.

Listen to Sound Made by Stars

Scientists at the University of Birmingham have reconstructed the sound produced by a star. 
Starquakes inside stars resonate and cause the light they emit to flicker. These frequencies have been detected by the Kepler Space Telescope and interpreted by scientists working with Nasa.
Researchers at the University of Birmingham have taken one month of data from a star called KIC 11026764, nicknamed "Gemma", and filtered it to remove noise outside the range of the star's strongest "tones".
"Gemma" is approximately 534 light years away - 3,100,000 billion miles - but is still part of our galaxy.  Click here to listen sound made by Star

U.S. House of Representatives Recognizes Battle of Marathon as Extremely Significant

The United States House of Representatives passed Resolution 1704.  It was introduced by  Democratic legislator James McGovern from Massachussetts, last September. The Resolution recognizes that the Athenian warriors of the Battle of Marathon, in 490 B.C, is one of the most significant battles of the human history.  It defeated the numerically powerful Persian invaders that attacked them. This victory contributed to the establishment of the newly formed democratic regime. The foundation of the U.S.A. several years later, was based on the basic principles of democracy. The Resolution was passed by a vote of 359 to 44, on December 8th, 2010.

Saturn moon mountains taller than Everest

A strange mountain range girding the equator of Saturn’s third-largest moon may have been formed not by geological forces but rather by the explosive breakup of an orbiting mini-moon, scientists suggest.
The strange geological landmark on Iapetus, revealed in images provided by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, is an almost straight-line mountain range that towers higher than 12 miles and spreads as wide as 60 miles.
The formation make Iapetus look something like a walnut with a ridge between the halves of its shell. The Iapetus ridge, however, is higher than Mount Everest and extends for thousands of miles, almost completely around the equator of the 900-mile diameter satellite.
“There’s nothing else like it in the solar system,” says Andrew Dombard, associate professor of earth and environmental sciences at the University of Illinois at Chicago. “It’s something we’ve never seen before and didn’t expect to see.”

Police mull banning all UK protests

The British police chief says he is weighing up an option to ask the Home Secretary to enforce a ban on any future protest gatherings altogether across the UK.
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson referred to the level of violence in recent student protests against the rise in tuition fees, saying that he does not rule out banning all future student protests across the country, the daily Independent reported.

Tens of thousands of student protesters from universities, colleges and schools have been marching across England in protests against the huge hikes in tuition fees, together with the scrapping of Educational Maintenance Allowance and proposed cuts in college funding. 

Principle Of Astrology Proven To Be Scientific: Planetary Position Imprints Biological Clocks Of Mammals

(NaturalNews) Mention the word “astrology” and skeptics go into an epileptic fit. The idea that someone’s personality could be imprinted at birth according to the position of the sun, moon and planets has long been derided as “quackery” by the so-called “scientific” community which resists any notion based on holistic connections between individuals and the cosmos.
Conventional scientists don’t believe the position of the moon has anything to do with life on Earth, either. They dismiss the wisdom that farmers have known for ages — that planting seeds or transplanting living plants in harmony with the moon cycles results in higher crop yields. Even the seeds inside humans are strongly influenced by the moon, as menstruation cycles and moon cycles are closely synchronized (28 days, roughly).
Researchers demonstrate scientific principle of astrology
Skeptics must be further bewildered by the new research published in Nature Neuroscience and conducted at Vanderbilt University which unintentionally provides scientific support for the fundamental principle of astrology — namely, that the position of the planets at your time of birth influences your personality.
In this study, not only did the birth month impact personality; it also resulted in measurable functional changes in the brain.

Berlusconi Survives Government Confidence Vote as Students Protest in Rome

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi survived a confidence vote as student protesters clashed with police, leaving clouds of tear gas and smoke from burning cars wafting over Rome. 
“He bought some time,” said Roberto D’Alimonte, professor of politics at Luiss University in Rome. “He is still in control. He is still the master. He can choose what suits him best” -- either bringing defectors into his coalition, allying with the centrist UDC party or seeking early elections, he said. 
The demonstrators hurled bottles and smoke bombs and dumped manure in the street outside Berlusconi’s residence and the Senate before charging barricades. They moved to Piazza del Popolo after the vote, where garbage and police trucks were overturned and set ablaze as firecrackers exploded. Police fired tear gas to disperse the crowds.

Δεν δίστασε να χαρακτηρίσει την Άλωση της Πόλης και το 1821 ένοπλες συγκρούσεις από τις πολλές που σημειώθηκαν μεταξύ των Ελλήνων και των Τούρκων προκειμένου να τεκμηριώσει το όραμά της για συμφιλίωση και καλή γειτονία
ΣΤΗΝ ΕΝΝΕΑΣΕΛΙΔΗ ΟΜΙΛΙΑ της, η αρχηγός της Δημοκρατικής Συμμαχίας απολογήθηκε ενώπιον του τουρκικού ακροατηρίου ότι η Ελλάδα «από το 1922 δεν έχει επιδείξει καμία εδαφική φιλοδοξία», ενώ δεν είπε το παραμικρό για την τουρκική θεωρία των γκρίζων ζωνών
Ο λόγος που εκφώνησε η πρώην υπουργός Εξωτερικών άφησε έκπληκτους ακόμη και τους Τούρκους ακροατές της, κυρίως για την… ειλικρίνεια με την οποία η κυρία Μπακογιάννη παρουσίασε τις απόψεις της και «ισοπέδωσε» ιστορικά γεγονότα, παραχαράσσοντας ακόμη και τη σημαντικότερη στιγμή της Ελληνικής Ιστορίας.


Η δήλωση του μήνα

Η άποψή μου είναι ότι μπορούμε να ψάξουμε μαζί στην υφαλοκρηπίδα του Αιγαίου και να εξορύξουμε το πετρέλαιο, που πιθανόν να υπάρχει. Έτσι, θα προκύψει πλούτος και αφθονία και για τις δύο χώρες. Συνεκμετάλλευση 50-50 του Αιγαίου. Αυτή είναι η προσωπική μου άποψη, όχι της κυβέρνησης. Ας βρούμε πετρέλαιο, ας βγάλουμε λεφτά, ας τα μοιραστούμε κι έτσι οι πλατφόρμες του πετρελαίου να αποτελέσουν πλατφόρμα για λύση. O Toύρκος υπουργός Επικρατείας Egemen Bagis εκμεταλλεύεται στο έπακρο τη πολιτική “περιορισμένης εθνικής κυριαρχίας” της κυβέρνησης Παπανδρέου.

Η χρήση χημικών απαγορεύεται σε όλο τον κόσμο από το Διεθνές Δίκαιο. Δείτε τι γίνεται στην Ελλάδα

Σε όλες τις χώρες του κόσμου έχει απαγορευτεί η χρήση χημικών από την αστυνομία για την καταστολή διαδηλώσεων, καθώς έχουν αποδειχθεί εξαιρετικά βλαβερά για την ανθρώπινη υγεία. Μόνο στην Ελλάδα και στην Αργεντινή εξακολουθούν και τα χρησιμοποιούν. Χώρες του ΔΝΤ και οι δύο! Τυχαίο? Δεν νομίζω!
Αρκετοί από εσάς θα...
έχετε ΄΄γευτεί΄΄ την γεύση των χημικών της Ελληνικής Αστυνομίας. Κι ας μην είστε κουκουλοφόροι, ας μην πετάτε μολότοφ και ας μην σπάτε καταστήματα. Δεν χρειάζεται. Η Αστυνομία θα σας ψεκάσει σαν κατσαρίδες μόνο και μόνο επειδή κατεβήκατε σε μια πορεία να διαμαρτυρηθείτε. Όσες κυβερνήσεις κι αν αλλάξουν, όσες διευθύνσεις της Αστυνομίας τα χημικά και τα δακρυγόνα θα πέφτουν σαν τα ρύζια στους γάμους. Κι αυτό για να φοβίσουν και να αποτρέψουν τον κόσμο να διαδηλώνει. Μήπως σας θυμίζει κάτι από χούντα?
