Michael Jackson: The King is Dead…!


Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson: The King is Dead…!


The name of Michael Jackson, in spite of all those negative bytes that have gone into his “History”, can never be taken without awe and a ceremonial jaw-drop. There has never been a musical debut that could match Jackson’s.

In the early 1980s, Jackson became the first African-American entertainer to enjoy a massive crossover following on MTV. His music videos—such as “Beat It", "Billie Jean" and Thriller—transformed the face of English pop music, forever. On stage, Jackson electrified his crowd with some signature dance moves such as “the robot” and “the moonwalk”. MJ is considered the beacon-holder for all post-modern hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists.

Jackson was one of the few artistes to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career.

We bow to you, MJ, for all those hours that we spent drooling over your fantabulous tunes. For all those days that were spent mourning your “transgressions”!

As they would say in medieval England, The King is Dead! Long Live The King!

Richest lord of Kaliyuga

Richest lord of Kaliyuga
The Rs 42 crore diamond-studded 2.5 feet tall crown gifted by Karnataka tourism minister Gali Janardhan Reddy on Thursday could be the most significant contribution to Lord Venkateswara's ever growing wealth of gifts but the Lord of the Seven Hills has by now become so familiar with these riches that few are surprised by this latest offering. His riches are such that they are guarded by armed security personnel in a treasury, the location of which remains a closely guarded secret by top brass of the temple . With the total worth of the offerings made to the Lord estimated to be somewhere between Rs 30,000 crore to Rs 50,000 crore, the deity's title of the 'Richest Lord of Kaliyuga' is not without reason.

Devotees enrich Tirumala treasury
While Gali's gift was the seventh crown offered to the Lord, the earlier crowns in his glittering kitty were no small gifts either. In the past, Sri Venkateswara Hatcheries ' owner had gifted a gold crown weighing 13 kg and another business tycoon gifted a 10 kg gold crown. In 2001, an industrialist from Pune had donated a pure gold crown weighing about 14.3 kg costing nearly Rs 1 crore.

Gold and diamond-studded gifts have been streaming into the Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam's coffer regularly, more so in the last three to five years. From a diamond parrot to a golden prawn, the 'Srivari Hundi' is glittering like never before since the beginning of this millennium. The Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) officials say that the donations have touched an all time high mark since 2005.

In 2005, a businessman from Tamil Nadu donated a valuable golden crown studded with precious American diamonds to the processional deity of Lord Malayappa Swamy, the cost of which was estimated as Rs 2 crore. In 2006, Lord Venkateswara received his most precious set of ear rings (Karnaabharanaalu) when a devotee from Chennai, Alagappa Chettiyar offered diamond studded Karna Patralu worth Rs.1.01 crore and if this offering wasn't enough he went on to give a 'Sahasranamakasulaharam' , golden chain worth over Rs 50 lakh to Goddess Padamavathi.

And in April 2009, when the world was reeling under the meltdown and real estate activity was still at a standstill, a cement baron donated Rs 5 crore worth gloves, Kati and Varada Hastam, to Lord Venkateswara. Not too long ago, a business tycoon from Pune offered a diamond studded parrot and 'Nagabharanams' worth Rs 1.5 crore. Not to be left behind, the King of good times, UB Group Chairman Vijay Mallya donated Rs 7 crores towards the gold plating inside the sanctum sanctorum about three years ago. And last year, when gold prices went through the roof, a Hyderabad-based businessman Rajendran offered Rs 1.7 crore worth Lakshmi Haram (a garland of gold coins) to the deity while another Bangalore-based businessman donated a diamond crown to Goddess Padmavati which was worth Rs. 1 crore.

The not-so-rich, small humble gifts are also quite a booty at TTD. Devotees promising replicas of their limbs in gold if their wish of a cure to an ailing hand or leg is fulfilled, or businessmen dropping gold and silver replicas of cigar packets, liquor bottles, watches, shoes (offerings reflective of the work they do) in the hundi are fairly common. Even smaller offerings such as gold chains etc are collected and sent to the Bombay Mint and the gold melted and sent back to TTD. Some gold is converted into a given number of coins, which is then sold by the temple at the market rate.

Jewel's Day Out
While there are no exact estimates of the value of the jewellery of Lord Venkateswara, since many of these gifts have a high antique value, temple sources peg the entire jewellery property to be worth anywhere between Rs.30,000 crore and Rs 50,000 crore.

All these precious jewels are safe guarded inside the sanctum sanctorum at a sacred hall called Bokkasam (Jewel Gallery), which is guarded by half a dozen armed security personnel and has CCTV cameras installed to monitor every movement in arguably one of the world's richest treasury. There is, in fact, a Thiruvabharanam (holy jewels) register meant to list out the jewellery items. The register has been maintained strictly for gold and diamond studded offerings from the time TTD took over charge of the temple in 1933.

The precious jewels leave the treasury only on special occasions - auspicious days when the Lord is adorned in the diamond-studded love of his devotees. For such auspicious days, the temple priests give the list of jewels needed for the Lord's decoration a day in advance to the temple peshkar and Bokkasam-in-charge. They, under the supervision of temple deputy executive officer, assistant executive officer, and in the strict vigil of security personnel, open the Thiruvabharanam box and take out the items. These items are later returned in the same manner

Moves he’s bored of

Moves he’s bored of


“It’s hot, it’s steamy, its purrrrfecctt,” is what you tell your friends when they ask about your love life. If you don’t like what he’s doing, you just tell him right?

But whoever gets bored of tiny pecks, extended foreplay and slowly slipping off your clothes? – Not people in love (like you two) that’s for sure.

But you’re just speaking for yourself. Are you sure he’s all that happy too? Women usually think men won’t complain as long as they are getting some - and some they may be right, but honestly they are only human and boredom may come easy. Shocked?

Running to save your love-life? Screech to a halt and take a breather, here are some men who very considerately have let us in on what they find boring in bed. So take some pointers from them instead of digging in the dark.
“Kissing the neck”

"I’m bored of the missionary position. When it comes to foreplay it’s good when it’s slow, ‘cause that’s the way I like it. Also if we are just kissing for very long I get bored… it’s like “let’s get on with it and get the clothes off woman. And another thing when she kisses my neck and goes on with it, that is just a waste of time. You see, men don’t have very sensitive necks, unless she’s kissing the back of my neck." - Nitesh Singh, 25

“Take off your clothes!”

"I’m not an gymnast to experiment with positions. So that's never an issue. But the most boring part is of course getting the clothes off. Sheer waste of time. Wish that was an automated process triggered by sexual urge." - Paritosh D, 29

“No routine please”

"It’s not so much the sex (or associated activity) as it is the routine. The minute anything starts sliding into a routine, it starts becoming dull. So we keep changing things - places, times, activity, positions, lights, music, etc." - Ashish T, 29

“Nibbling the ear”

"I worship the act and everything before and after it. The religious fervour that I associate with it makes it very difficult for me to tell you what I'm bored of. But if you insist… nibbling the ears isn't always a good foreplay move.It can get really annoying. Everything else rocks!" - Vikram N, 27

“The condom dilemma”

"Forget the sex, I’ll tell you what I am bored of the same damn rubber I've been using all the time. Tried others, but they simply don't work. And I don't want to lose IT just before the act...you know what. So am stuck with the same ribbed condom." - Devashish Mehta, 31

“All talk and talk”

"What I’m bored of is the conversation after sex. Another folly many people commit is to think that their own erogenous zones work for everyone, which may not be the case. But that is true for both men and women." - Shoren Shah, 30

“It’s not the moves”

Oh god....never bored of any moves...the person? ...Yes!!...hehehe - Hitesh B, 29

The Risks of Summer Sex

The Risks of Summer Sex

With its warm nights, the summer season often brings out the best and the most adventurous feelings of love and lust. Why confine sex to the bedroom, or even the house, when there are beaches and pools and hot tubs to host our most private moments?

A few reasons, as it turns out. As unsexy as it sounds, there are some health risks and practical concerns associated with summertime sex. While outright bans are not in order, some cautions to consider:

Condoms + water = tricky

Not to throw cold water on your fantasies, but you might consider some new drier ones.

While condoms are meant to be compatible with water-based lubricants, they should not be completely submerged in water. Condom companies don't test their products in such a condition, and therefore can't vouch for their effectiveness when used in pools, hot tubs or other wet and wild setups.

"Though the salt in seawater would not have adverse effects on condom materials, there is a strong possibility that the chemicals used in swimming pools (chlorine and ozone, for example) would," a Durex spokesperson told LiveScience.

Heat of any kind could break the condom down. Plus, it's just plain difficult to put on a condom in the water.

There are also the logistics of lubrication to deal with: Water washes it all away, including the natural lubrication a woman's body produces.

Sun, sand and ... bacteria

Maybe you're in an STD-free, monogamous relationship and don't use condoms. You still might want to avoid water sex, as improperly maintained pools, hot tubs and Jacuzzis can be breeding grounds for bacteria. A study released last fall by Oregon State University found that summer is a bad time for bacterial infections in general, with serious infections caused by bacteria up as much as 17 percent with every 10-degree increase in seasonal air temperature.

Such bacteria, the researchers said, are a frequent cause of gastrointestinal and respiratory infections, as well as pneumonia and wound/blood infections. In addition, the bacteria can cause urinary tract infections, for which recent sexual intercourse is a known risk factor.

Confining your fling to the beach may not be healthy, either. A study published in the July 2007 issue of the journal Environmental Science & Technology found that the microbes that lead to beach closures and health advisories when detected at unsafe levels in the ocean also can be found in the sand.

According to the researchers, 91 percent of the beaches in the study had detectable levels of enterococci (bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections, endocarditis, diverticulitis and meningitis), and 62 percent of them had traces of E. coli. Those bacteria, when found at high levels in water, also can cause skin rashes or ear infections in swimmers.

'Swimmer' risk

And if all that weren't cause for pause, know this: Hot-tub use can cause fertility problems in men.

A 2007 study conducted by the University of California, San Francisco, found that total body exposure to wet heat can impair both sperm production and motility. The study's participants reported the use of a hot tub, heated Jacuzzi or bath at a temperature warmer than their body temperature for 30 minutes or more per week for at least three months prior to participation in the study.

Researchers asked the participants to stop all wet-heat immersion for three or more months, and 45 percent of those men reported a mean increase in total motile sperm counts of 491 percent after three to six months. In addition, the study pointed out that 85 percent to 90 percent of infertility cases can be effectively treated with drug therapy or surgical procedures.

Making $7,500 a Month Working An Online

How I Started Making $7,500 a Month Working An Online Part-Time Job from Home.
Hi, my name is Kevin from California and this is how I went from working over 40 hours a week sunk in debt, to working a part-time job from home making $7,500 a month:

Like a lot of people these days, the company I was working for was feeling the effects of the economy. I lost my job because my company decided to downsize and I needed to find a new way to pay my bills and support my family. I’ve never been interested in any type of get rich quick scheme, I was looking for a real home business opportunity. After a lot of searching, I found two online opportunities and now I’m making more than I did at my old job. Basically I make between $5,000 and $8,000 a month by working at home for Google. I only work a few hours a day, it doesn’t take a lot of computer skills and I don’t have to try to sell anything. Too good to be true right? That’s what I thought at first, but this program really changed my life. The Google Money Kit explains everything.
All I had to pay was the $2 shipping costs to start it.

Is Working Online At Home The Next Gold Rush?


Are online jobs the next big thing? For Mary Steadman it sure is. Mary, a mother from San Jose, CA is thriving, in the middle of an economic recession working in the comfort of her own home.

From her website: "I get paid about $25 for every link I post on Google and I get paid every week... I make around $5500 a month right now"

Mary's story is a very familiar one in these tough times. She lost her job as an account rep for a manufacturing company and a few days later her husband also was laid off from his job as part of cutbacks due to the bad economy.

"We knew we had to do something, so we put our heads together and started trying online job opporuntities." Mary and her husband Kevin wound up getting caught up in a few quick rich business opportunities that were nothing more than pyramid schemes before finding something that really worked.

"I realized the best thing to do is instead of hoping that a company that you are looking at is going last, why not go with a big, reputable company. After looking at several different companies, I picked the safest bet... Google."

Online giant Google is a publicly traded company and is worth an estimated $100 Billion (with a b). The company has pioneered online search and has changed the way we use the internet.

In a matter of weeks Mary and Kevin had a steady stream of income coming in via checks that were delivered to their home. They happened upon a system called "Easy Google Profit" that taught them how to make money posting links online.

Easy Google Profitis a free course that can teach anyone, regardless of computer skill level to start making money online. It's available for free at EasyGoogleProfit.com.
"We were doing pretty good and then we discovered the real trick to making money. We combined "Easy Google Profit" with another free course called "My Internet Payday" that's where we really learned the extra tricks so instead of making a couple of hundred bucks here and there we started maximizing the amount we made."

For those of you that have seen the 'scammy' sites on the internet that promise you can make millions of dollars online Mary warns that this is not the promise being made here and that most of those sites are false representations of earnings you can make.

"We never tell anyone they'll make millions of dollars, in fact I think this is the ONLY online system that says you probably WON'T make millions, but you can generate a legitimate income from home like I do that replaced my full time job."

Getting started is simple. Following these simple steps below is all you need to do to get started.

Step 1: GetEasy Google Profit, only pay the $1.00 for shipping.

Step 2: Also getMy Internet Payday. This is key. I think you pay $1.95 for shipping or something. to post. Start posting those links. Google tracks everything.

Step 3: Follow the directions on Easy Google Profit that basically shows you how to and set up a Google account. You need them both. Then they will give you the website links to post. Start posting those links. Google tracks everything.
