War North Korea fires on South Korea

 North Korea fired dozens of artillery shells onto aSouth Korean island on Tuesday, killing one person, setting homes ablaze and triggering an exchange of fire as the South's military went on top alert.

In what appeared to be one of the most serious border incidents since the 1950-53 war, South Korean troops fired back with cannon, the government convened in an underground war room and "multiple" air force jets scrambled.
The firing came after North Korea's disclosure of an apparently operational uranium enrichment programme -- a second potential way of building a nuclear bomb -- which is causing serious alarm for the United States and its allies.

Some 50 shells landed on the South Korean border island of Yeonpyeong near the tense Yellow Sea border, damaging dozens of houses and sending plumes of thick smoke into the air, YTN television reported.
One South Korean marine -- part of a contingent based permanently on the frontline island -- was killed and 13 other marines were wounded, the military said. YTN said two civilians were also hurt.

"A Class-A military alert issued for battle situations was imposed immediately after shelling began," a military spokesman said.
Sporadic firing by each side continued for over an hour before dying out, the military said.
The shelling began at 2:34 pm (0534 GMT) after the North sent several messages protesting about South Korean naval, air force and army training exercises being staged close to the border, a presidential spokesman said.
"Flashes along with a thunderous sound were seen here and there across our villages and up to 10 houses were engulfed in flames," said Woo Soo-Woo, 62, a guesthouse owner on the island.
The shooting started bushfires at several places in the hills, he told AFP by phone after fleeing the island by ferry for the mainland port of Incheon.
"Frightened villagers rushed to nearby shelters while others were busy running away and crowded the port to escape," Woo said, adding about 1,500-1,700 civilians live on the island.
"When I walked out, the whole village was on fire," another villager was quoted by Yonhap news agency as saying. "I'm at the evacuation site with other villagers and I am scared to death."

Yeonpyeong lies just south of the border declared by United Nations forces after the war, but north of the seaborder declared by Pyongyang.

The Yellow Sea border was the scene of deadly naval clashes in 1999, 2002 and last November.
Tensions have been acute since the sinking of a South Korean warship in March, which Seoul says was the result of a North Korean torpedo attack. Pyongyang has rejected the charge.
South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak convened an emergency meeting of ministers and top advisers in an underground war room, a presidential spokesman said. He urged the officials "to prevent further escalation".
The firing comes after Kim Jong-Un, the little-known youngest son of ailing North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, was officially recognised as his father's eventual successor.
"This is an intentional provocation to heighten cross-border tensions," Dongguk University professor Kim Yong-Hyun told AFP.
"The North made a series of gestures but there has been no response from South Korea and the United States. It is now using its brinkmanship aimed at forcing Seoul and Washington to take action and agree to dialogue."
Kim said the North would try to use the clash to promote solidarity among its people during the leadership succession.
"It is also sending a strong message to the United States and the international community that the peninsula urgently needs a peace regime."
A US special envoy headed to China Tuesday to seek its help in curbing North Korea's new nuclear project, revealed to US experts who described a sophisticated programme to enrich uranium.
Stephen Bosworth has also visited South Korea and Japan this week to discuss the disclosure, which US officials say would allow the isolated North to build new atomic bombs.
Bosworth, speaking in Tokyo, ruled out a resumption of stalled six-nation talks -- aimed at denuclearising the North in return for aid and other concessions -- while work continues on the enrichment drive.
China chairs the talks and is also the North's sole major ally and economic prop.
It appealed for the six-party talks to resume after the new revelations, and expressed concern over Tuesday's cross-border firing. Russia also warned against an escalation of tensions on the peninsula.

The electorate in one of India's most backward states wholeheartedly endorsed Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's agenda of development. And also showed that development beat caste considerations among the electorate.

3rd Test India won against New Zealand

Vettori and the rest of the New Zealand team come out of the dressing-room and shake hands with the Indians as they troop off the ground. It was probably too much to expect New Zealand to have wrenched a draw in this game after being dominated in the first three days, but you'd have expected them to at least take the match till late into the fourth day.

Almost everything has gone right for India in this game, perhaps some runs from Raina would have made it perfect. Two men who weren't in their best form, Gambhir and Dhoni, spent time in the middle, Ishant Sharma and Sreesanth seemed to be in rhythm, and the spinners did their job as well in Nagpur. The win means India take the series 1-0, and they are now haven't lost a series since the Mendis inspired Sri Lanka to victory in mid-2008.

It's not all doom-and-gloom for New Zealand, who were widely expected to be thumped 3-0 when they came into the series. The emergence of Kane Williamson is a huge bonus, as is the return of Jesse Ryder who has been out of Tests for a long time ahead of this series.

Rajini fan Shiv Nadar HCL Tech

But why does she not want to be a part of this?

Shiv Nadar: It is a different way. She had to go to IT, study IT, become good at it because there are many people who are competing for this job and they are very good.

But are you here suggesting that the decision to differentiate between management and ownership was more hers than yours?

Shiv Nadar: It has to be hers because she is the one who is inheriting. In my time I built this organisation, I am management. So it is her call.

What if she had decided to join your venture?

Shiv Nadar: She would have to study and then come up to this place really speaking on her own.

You would not give her management control or put her on the board because she was your daughter?

Shiv Nadar: CEO’s position, working positions are different. They are hard. You just face up to complex technology issues, these are complex technology issues.

Is she happy doing what she is right now?

Shiv Nadar: She went to study that and she knows what she is doing.

Do you discuss a lot of strategy there?

Shiv Nadar: She is very good in what she is building and I am also very careful that she should feel that it is something which she built, which can happen only if she builds it. I built HCL, so I am proud of it. She has to build VidyaGyan if she has to be proud of it. It cannot be dad and I built it, no, that’s not going to work.

But at one level because she is your only daughter, are you not a little disappointed with the fact that she is not going to take HCL up?

Shiv Nadar: No.

Didn’t it ever bother you?

Shiv Nadar: It never came to my mind actually. When Vineet joined 25 years ago - when he was a trainee - even at that time within 10 years I was sure that he was a guy who was going to succeed me. So I introduced him to everyone in the board and in my friends. He said, ‘I am not succeeding Shiv’. I said, ‘You don’t know, you are the one who are succeeding me’ and he did.

When did you know she is not going to be a part of this business?

Shiv Nadar: When she went to college, when she decided to do Liberal Arts, I knew this is not where she is coming to. She is also trained in television and in radio and broadcast journalism. She interviewed Prince Edward when she was in London. She had a few things to do, the company or not the company, she always had to run the treasury. A good part of the wealth she had to run, so she needed to go to a business school. First I wanted to teach her whatever I can, which I did. Then she went to business school and around that time she chose what she wanted to do in the next several years.

So it is not bridge but it is the movies, 4000 movies collection?

Shiv Nadar: 4000 is an exaggeration.

How many do you have in your collection?

Shiv Nadar: About 1000.

Which ones are your all-time favourites?

Shiv Nadar: All Tamil films, Hindi films, it just keeps building and I keep buying.

What’s the last movie you watched and enjoyed?

Shiv Nadar: You would not believe it, 15 of us went to see Robot - Robot in Hindi - and the people who went to watch were all the founders of HCL.

Are you a Rajnikant fan?

Shiv Nadar: Completely.

Did you not watch the Tamil version, Endhiran?

Shiv Nadar: No, I have not, it does not come here, I have watched it here.

I was expecting that answer, you are from the land of Rajnikant, how could you not watch Robot?

Shiv Nadar: In my phone, my text messages, if you see the last 10 text messages, they will all be Rajnikant jokes. Last one was sent by my daughter, ‘Paul the Octopus was asked to predict Rajnikant’s day of death and it died.’

Houses of Parliament were adjourned

November 23, 2010 11:23 IST

The logjam in Parliament doesn't seem to end. Both the Houses of Parliament were adjourned till 12 noon within minutes of opening this morning amid Opposition's insistence for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) probe into the 2G scam.

The morning sessions in both Houses were marked by sloganeering and loud protests.

The question that many are asking is if matters continue like this will the government decide to cut short the winter session? What the Opposition will also be closely watching is what the Supreme Court will have to say on the PM's affidavit on Raja.

"I think the government may reconsider its position. I think good sense will prevail upon the government in order to keep our Parliament and democracy to move on. The government will have to concede to the demand which is reasonable, made by the Opposition parties," said CPI leader.

Karnataka CM Yeddyurappa resigns

 Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, who struck a defiant note and cancelled his visit to Delhi on Sunday night, has been summoned to the capital amid strong indications that BJP may ask him to step down.

Yeddyurappa left Bangalore early on Monday morning and made a stop at Sathya Sai Baba's Ashram in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh to seek divine help.
Meanwhile, Karnataka Education Minister VS Acharya told CNN-IBN that he will tell the BJP top brass that the party needs Yeddyurappa as their leader in the state.

The BJP leader was supposed to reach Delhi on Sunday evening to meet party president Nitin Gadkaribut then dropped his plans.
BJP President Nitin Gadkari had called a meeting of top leaders Arun Jaitely, Anant Kumar and Ram Lal on Sunday night when it was decided to summon him on MOnday.
"The senior leaders have expressed their views in today's meeting and then authorised me to take a decision on Karnataka. But I will discuss the issue again with Yeddyurappa before taking a decision," Gadkari had said after the morning meeting in which senior leaders L K AdvaniMurli Manohar Joshi,Rajnath Singh and Sushma Swaraj were present.
Sources said there was a feeling in the meeting that it was becoming increasingly untenable for Yeddyurappa to continue in office at a time when the party was carrying on a campaign at the national level on the telecom scam.
All along the leaders had taken a lenient view of the opposition attack on Yeddyurappa against the backdrop of land scam charges and nepotism.
But sources said what seemed to have tilted the leaders' thinking were fresh media reports that talked of cheque transactions to the tune of Rs.20 crore being allegedly transferred to CM's sons and son-in-law from a Bellary mining company.
Sources said Gadkari was authorised to convey to Yeddyurappa that it would be better for him to make way for a leader with a clean image.
Yeddyurappa had booked his passage by a couple of evening flights but cancelled them.
The names of Panchayat Raj Minister Jagdish Shettar, a Lingayat like the CM, Law Minister Suresh Kumar and the Speaker K G Bopaiah are doing the rounds as replacement for Yeddyurappa.

beauty of Ship Queen Victoria images

Must see images of Queen Victoria worlds most expensive Luxury's Ship ever made.

please watch this ppt of  Ship Queen Victoria.

Enjoy. post your comments below.

great message from Bill Gates

A great message for the kids from Bill Gates

A great message for the kids from Bill Gates and the beauty of Queen Victoria-

If you Mess up it's Not your Parents Fault - Bill Gates

A great message for the kids.

" If you Mess up - It's Not your Parents Fault. "
                                                   Bill Gates.
This should be posted at every school and on everyone's refrigerator if they have kids - can also apply to many adults!

Love him or hate him , he sure hits the nail on the head with this!
Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

 Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!

 Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self-esteem.
The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

 Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone u ntil you earn both.

 Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss

 Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

 Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault , so don't whine about your mistakes,
learn from them.

 Rule 7 : Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

 Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

 Rule 9 : Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time..

 Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

 Rule 11 : Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

Warning on Car Airconditioning


Warning on Car Airconditioning 

No wonder more folks are dying from cancer than ever before.  We wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents.  Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night, 7 days a week.   As I read this, it makes me feel guilty and ill.  Please pass this on to as many people as possible. Guess it’s not too late to make some changes

Car A/C (Air Conditioning) MUST READ!!! 
Please do NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car. 

Open the windows after you enter your car and turn ON the AC after a couple of minutes.

Here's why: 

According to a research, the dashboard, sofa and air freshener emit Benzene, a cancer-causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated plastic in your car).

In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anemia and reduces white blood cells.

Prolonged exposure will cause Leukemia, increasing the risk of cancer.

Can also cause miscarriage. .

Acceptable Benzene level indoors is 50 mg per sq. ft. A car parked indoors with windows closed will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene.

If parked outdoors under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F, the Benzene level goes up to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable level.

People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale, in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver. What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So friends, please open the windows and doors of your car and give time for the deadly interior air to clear out before you enter.

India in Asian Games men's hockey semifinals

 Sandeep Singh scored two goals as India stormed into the Asian Games men's hockey semifinals with a 3-2 win over Pakistan Saturday, their fourth success over their arch-rivals this year. 

In Pics: India beat Pakistan 

The penalty corner specialist slammed one in each half and Dharamvir Singh chipped in with the third goal as India recorded their third consecutive win in group B after an action-packed encounter. 

India have nine points ahead of Sunday's last league match against Japan, who are level with Pakistan on six points each. 

India beat Pakistan 4-1 at the World Cup in March, won 4-2 in the Azlan Shah tournament in Malaysia in May and hammered the rivals 7-4 at last month's Commonwealth Games. 

"Winning four times in a row does not matter, this is not a series," said Indian captain Rajpal Singh. "What is more important for me is that we play well in every match. 

"Our strategy was simple. We had to attack from the start and not give Pakistan too many penalty corners." 

Pakistan's lone penalty corner, which came in the 58th minute, did not succeed as Indian goalkeeper Bharat Chetri leaped in the air to deflect Sohail Abbas' stinging drag flick. 

Pakistan captain Zeeshan Ashraf blasted the umpiring, saying poor decisions throughout the match cost his team the match. 

"The umpires made the difference," he said. "We should have got at least three or four more penalty corners. 

"I don't think there is any difference between the two teams. It was a close game that could have gone either way. 

"India also got only three scoring chances in the entire game, but they converted all." 

Pakistan's Dutch coach Michel van den Heuvel, who watched the match from the stands, argued with the umpires and technical officials after the final whistle. 

Zeeshan denied Pakistan will protest, but wanted his team to recover quickly from the defeat and prepare for the rest of the tournament. 

"The main thing is we are still in contention for the gold medal," he said. "We will bounce back." 

The match, watched by some 1,000 fans at the small Aoti Hockey Centre, began on a rousing note as Sandeep put India ahead in the second minute and striker Rehan Butt drew level for Pakistan in the fourth. 

India took a 2-1 lead by half-time as Dharamvir swooped on a pass from the centre to flick the ball past the rushing goalkeeper Salman Akbar in the 16th minute. 

An error from Indian defender Dhananjay Mahadik, who failed to clear a loose ball, allowed veteran Shakeel Abbasi to net Pakistan's equaliser eight minutes into the second session. 

India earned their second penalty corner five minutes later and Sandeep once again executed a perfect flick to make it 3-2. 

Pakistan, who won the last of their seven Asian Games gold medals in Beijing in 1990, have not bagged a major title since the World Cup triumph in Sydney in 1994. 

They face Bangladesh on Sunday, needing a win to move into the semifinals.
