Portugal becomes the eighth country in the world to legalize same-sex marriages nationwide

For students, Sehwag's second triple ton shows that destiny is not a matter of chance, it's a matter of choice; it's not a thing to be waited for, it's a thing to be achieved. Today a man, down on his luck just three tests ago, proved that determination and perseverance can move the world and demolish the roadblocks that come in the way
What is the subprime effect?
Subprime lending, also called ‘B-Paper’, ‘near-prime’ or ‘second chance’ lending, refers to the practice of giving loans to borrowers at interest rates above the prevailing market rates because of their low credit status and increased risk due to either a limited credit history, or histories of payment delinquencies, charge-offs or bankruptcies. Subprime lending includes mortgages, credit cards and car loans. It is risky for both the lender and the borrower. It helps those consumers who otherwise would not have access to credit market. But on the flip side the borrowers do not have the resources to meet the long-term loan obligations. But the crisis began in 2006, when in the US, thousands of borrowers defaulted in payments; as a result many lenders had to file for bankruptcy leading to a direct impact on the US housing market and economy as a whole.

General Knowledge
Kilimanjaro with its three volcanic cones, Kibo, Mawensi, and Shira, is an inactive stratovolcano in north-eastern Tanzania. Although it does not have the highest elevation, Kilimanjaro is the tallest free-standing mountain rise[1] in the world,[2] rising 4,600 m (15,100 ft) from its base, and includes the highest peak in Africa at 5,895 meters (19,340 ft), providing a dramatic view from the surrounding plains.

McKinley, Mt- Norht Pk 20,320 feet (North America)

South America, the planet's 4th largest continent, includes (12) countries and (3) major territories. It contains the massive Amazon River and surrounding basin - the largest tropical rain forest in the world; the toothy-edged Andes Mountains, that stretch the entire length of the continent, and some of the most diverse and spectacular landforms on the planet.

Argentina's Aconcagua (22,835'/6960m) is famous as the highest peak in the western hemisphere, but Andean peaks rise to over 20,000'/6100m in Chile, Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador as well, and Colombia (18865'/5750m) and Venzuela (16427'/5007m) are not far behind. Make no mistake, these are big, glaciated, and serious mountains for almost their entire length.

The tallest Mountain in Antarctica is Vinson Massif rising 4,892 metres (16,050 feet) above sea level

The lowest point in Antarctica is within the Bentley Subglacial Trench, which reaches 2,555 meters below sea level. This is also the lowest place on earth not covered by ocean (although it is covered by ice)

Extreme point of Europe: Northernmost point — Cape Fligely, Rudolf Island, Franz Josef Land, Russia (81° 48′ 24″ N)

The geography of Australia encompasses a wide variety of biogeographic regions being the world's smallest continent but the sixth-largest country in the world. The population of Australia is concentrated along the eastern and southeastern coasts. The geography of the country is extremely diverse, ranging from the snow capped mountains of Tasmania to large deserts, tropical and temperate forests.

Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and the French dependency of New Caledonia to the northeast, and New Zealand to the southeast. Highest point is Mount Kosciuszko

A leap year (or intercalary year) is a year containing one or more extra days (or, in case of lunisolar calendars, an extra month) in order to keep the calendar year synchronised with the astronomical or seasonal year. For example, February would have 29 days in a leap year instead of the usual 28. Seasons and astronomical events do not repeat at an exact number of full days, so a calendar which had the same number of days in each year would over time drift with respect to the event it was supposed to track. By occasionally inserting (or intercalating) an additional day or month into the year, the drift can be corrected. A year which is not a leap year is called a common year.

Today is Leap day (29.2.2008)

quote of the day:
The way to recover the meaning of life and the worthwhileness of life is to recover the power of experience, to have impulse voices from within, and to be able to hear these impulse voices from within - and make the point : This can be done. - Abraham Maslow

International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Started as a political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries (primarily Russia and the countries of former Soviet bloc).
In some celebrations, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express their love to the women around them in a way somewhat similar to Mother's Day and St Valentine's Day mixed together. In others, however, the political and human rights theme as designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.

The IWD is also celebrated as the first spring holiday, as in the listed countries the first day of March is considered the first day of the spring season.


Tiger Trivia
The tiger population in India is moving towards extinction faster than we can say Tiger! Soon school excursions to tiger parks, adventure holidays to tiger sanctuaries or even a visit to the zoo to see the big cat will be a thing of the past!

Human encroachment of the natural habitat and poaching are the main causes for this travesty. We all need to wake up to this stark reality before we lose the national animal forever! Did you know.

* The earliest known portrayal of the Royal Bengal Tiger in India comes to us from the Indus Valley Civilization where a 2500 BC seal featuring a tiger was found.

* At the current rate of poaching and habitat loss, it is estimated that tigers in the wild could completely disappear within the next ten years

* Bengal Tigers are native to India, Nepal and Bangladesh.Tigers are fully grown at 3-4 years of age. Male Bengal tigers reach up to 230 kilograms and three metres in length, while the female Bengal tigers are 130-170 kilograms and up to 2.5 metres long

* Tiger stripes are like fingerprints. No two are the same. The stripes are not only in the tiger's fur, but are a pigmentation of the skin.

* At full running speed tigers reach up to 60 kilometres per hour.

* Tigers have a white spot on the back of both ears, which looks like eyes. This tricks predators into thinking the tiger is looking at them. This is why they are called 'eye spots

* A group of tigers is called a 'streak'.

* Tigers have two noses! Well, not literally of course. A secondary scent gland called 'Jacobson's organ' is located in the tigers mouth and is used in assisting the animals in identifying other scents.

* All tigers have a similar marking on their forehead, which resembles the Chinese symbol Wang, (King).

* The tail gives the tiger extra balance when running and is also used to communicate to other tigers.

* The tendons in a tiger's leg are so strong that it has been known to remain standing after it has been shot dead.


Anything with a question mark in the date is probable, but not known for definite. A tilde (~) indicates that the date is approximate.

Only relatively few episodes have specific dates attached to them, but dates for the rest of them can be guessed at with a fair degree of certainty. For this purpose, I have made the simple assumption that the chronological order in which episodes occur is the same as the order of production code. There were four production seasons of roughly 18 episodes apiece. Space Pilot 3000 (1ACV01) is the first, The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings (4ACV18) is the last. This system enables all the episodes to be placed on the timeline, with only a little uncertainty and only one episode (Roswell That Ends Well) definitely out of sequence.

A slight anomaly is that this results in about 20 episodes taking place between January 1 and February 14, 3002. Hey ho. There are a few other interesting notes which you'll find as you read.

17 years before the Big Bang: Nibblonian civilisation is born
~28,997,001 BC or earlier: Emperor Nimbala rules Zuben 5. He will be seen in the year 3000 as a mummy in a tiny sarcophagus
1410 AD: Origins of banking industry regulations
1776: The United States of America are founded
1788: Steamboat invented
1793: Cotton gin invented
19th century: Light bulb, steamboat and cotton gin invented, according to Leela. Note that she's wrong on two of the three counts; the steamboat and the cotton gin are both from the 18th century. See above.
1820 to 1887: Golden Age Of Muttonchops
1874: Light bulb invented
1900s: Gwen's family starts making candy hearts from bone meal and earwig honey
20th century?: The Stupid Ages? Fry's era is referred to as the Stupid Ages more than once in the series. No dates are given, but the 20th century seems stupid enough to me.
July 9, 1947: Emerging from a time-warp, the Planet Express ship crash-lands near Roswell, New Mexico
July 10, 1947: Planet Express returns through the time-warp, leaving behind Bender's head
1951: Pete's TVs: "letting people watch news reports in our window since 1951"
August 9, 1960: David Duchovny is supposedly born; Duchovny is in fact the individual who will later be known as Calculon; his birth date might be a lie.
1960: The 1960 Presidential elections are fixed by John F. Kennedy, according to Richard Nixon
September 8, 1966: The first episode of the original series of Star Trek is aired
1969: The New York Mets win the World Championship.
July 20, 1969: Neil Armstrong and "Buzz" Aldrin land on the Moon. The original landing site will have been lost for centuries by the year 3000.
1973: Computers will double in speed between now and 3000, according to Richard Nixon in 3000 - probably something of an understatement
1973: Muhammed Ali faces an 80ft-tall mechanical Joe Frazier. The entire Earth is destroyed, according to George Foreman, whose memory is not, apparently, what it was
1974: birth of Philip J. Fry
1975: In Leela's dream, the Yellow Brick Road is renamed Martin Luther King Boulevard
1984 or later: Stricken with incurable boneitis, "that guy" (Steve Castle) is frozen. We know he's from the 1980s, but he has also certainly seen Apple's "1984" advert
1985: The New York Mets win the World Championship. Shea Stadium has a banner proclaiming: "Home of the 1969 & 1985 World Champion Mets". Note: This obliquely suggests that the Mets won't win the World Championship again for over a thousand years!
1988: What Hermes Conrad will later describe as a "legendary Jamaican bobsled team" first competes in the Winter Olympics
between 1990 and 1996: Applied Cryogenics experiences their penultimate power failure
1994 or 1995: Fry scrawls a picture of himself on a rocket
1995 to 1998?: Fry goes roughly three years without getting time off

circa 1997: date on the last existing can of anchovies ("Angry Norwegian Anchovies" brand)
August 1997: Fry meets his dog, "Seymour Asses"
July 1998: The summer from "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer". Seymour swims in toppings.
1999 or earlier: The evil brainspawn begin constructing the Infosphere. The Nibblonians forsee its completion and realise their need to cryogenically freeze Fry so that he can ultimately defeat them.
March 28, 1999: In real life, the first episode of Futurama is aired
1999: Fry spills a can of beer, disrupting the transmission of the series finale of Single Female Lawyer
Evening of December 31, 1999: Nibbler orders a pizza to be delivered to Applied Cryogenics, using the pseudonym I. C. Weiner.
11:35pm, December 31, 1999: Fry leaves on his last pizza delivery.
At this point the time-stream diverges. As is well recorded, Nibbler is hidden underneath the desk that Fry will sit at as the new millennium rolls in, intending to deliberately make Fry fall in the cryogenics tube, so that in the future (specifically, the episode "The Why Of Fry") he can defeat the brainspawn on behalf of all intelligent life.

In one timeline (timeline A) this goes ahead as planned. In timeline B, a Fry arrives from the future, sent back in time by the brains, just in time to deliver to Nibbler the dire warning, "Scootie-Puff Junior sucks!" This will have significant consequences, as we shall see in the year 3002 or so. Either way, Nibbler's plan proceeds as envisaged:

12:00:0?am, January 1, 2000: Philip J. Fry falls backwards into a cryogenic chamber, which automatically freezes him for a thousand years
lunchtime, January 1, 2000: Fry's father calls him, wondering where he is.
2000: The year Past-O-Rama is supposed to emulate

2038: Petroleum reserves run dry
2052: New York City obtains a rocket with which to launch the garbage into outer space.
2063: Lucy Liu is named People Magazine's sexiest woman of the year for the second time

24th century?: A medieval civilisation arises on the site of old New York. It will later be destroyed by aliens. (During the 1000-year sleep montage, you can see castles being built and then destroyed. No date is explicitly given, but a cop later in the episode suggests "going 24th century" on somebody's "ass". The connection is clear. Note that New New York City was hence built after this time.)
~2302?: Dashuba (sp?) monks begin searching for God
2354: Kwanzaabot begins giving out "What the hell is Kwanzaa?" books
~2400: American Express ceases to exist

Tuesday, December 31, 2999: Fry is unfrozen. (Bender correctly notes later in the episode that it is a Tuesday.) Note: Fry was not frozen for a full thousand years. He was woken up roughly twelve hours early, during daylight hours. There are a number of possible explanations for this: a slightly fast timer on the cryogenics chamber or a slight change in the length of the Earth's day due to events similar to those in "Crimes Of The Hot" are the two most obvious that spring to mind.
12:00:00am, January 1, 3000: Planet Express ship escapes the police
3000?: Events of "The Series Has Landed"

3000: Events of "A Head In The Polls". Note: The 3000 world presidential elections take place in this episode. Richard Nixon wins. This is, according to a reporter, Nixon's third term as president, which technically violates the Constitution. This in turn means that the whole of Earth is now using the same constitution that America started out with in 1776, which in turn means that (in the Futurama universe), sometime between 2000 and 3000, America attacked and conquered the entire world!
3000: At Momcorp, the future of robotics arrives.
3000?: RobotMania XXVI is held
December 24, 3000: Events of "Xmas Story"

3001: Events of "The Honking"
3001: At Momcorp, the future of robotics arrives.

It is here that the split caused in 1999 becomes significant. Fry is sent by the Nibblonians into the brains' InfoSphere so that he can destroy it. In timeline A, Fry's vehicle - a Scootie-Puff Junior - shatters in his hands, and he is sucked along with the InfoSphere into an empty universe. The brains then send him back in time to 1999, timeline B: see above.

In timeline B, thanks to Fry's warning in 1999, the Nibblonians provide Fry with a Scootie-Puff Senior with which he escapes the InfoSphere in time.

Futurama has a pretty rich timeline which is much more complete and consistent than most people would imagine. Whether the writers are aware of this and have a definite plot of future history written, or they just got lucky, is unknown, but there is only one definite contradiction in the whole series' run (look up Hermes' Olympic exploits in 2980, then in 2984), which in fact is very impressive. One can only hope that if (and when) further Futurama episodes are made, Futurama's writers have the sense to respect and work within the continuity they have created for themselves

Chinese race past Americans to top of world internet league

China has more internet users than any other country in the world, according to researchers at the Beijing-based analysts BDA. The research group said China had leapfrogged the US to become the world's most powerful nation online.

At the end of 2007, figures from China's internet network information centre said the country had 210 million internet users, putting it just a few million people behind the US. According to BDA, growth rates indicated that China had now taken the top spot.

"Based on these sources, we can conclude that China has by now comfortably surpassed the United States as the world's largest internet population," said Bin Liu, an analyst with the company.

China's number of internet users is increasing by around 200,000 a day, and the dotcom business sector is expanding rapidly.

But concerns have been raised about Beijing's repressive approach - using the so-called "Great Firewall" to block sites it deems politically dangerous.

The press freedom group Reporters sans Frontières, which this week staged an international day of protest against internet censorship, said in a report that China had imprisoned a number of political dissidents, and blamed western corporations for helping.

The report said: "The hunting down of independent thinkers online is all the more effective as several major western companies have colluded with governments in pinpointing 'troublemakers'."

Last year the founder of the internet company Yahoo! apologised to the family of the journalist Shi Tao - who is serving 10 years in jail - for passing information to the Chinese government that led to his arrest and imprisonment.

Tao had received government instructions on how to report the anniversary of Tiananmen Square and his crime was to forward an email to a human rights organisation.
