Paris Hilton..iba pagmayaman!!

Paris Hilton showed off her new and improved ride last Monday -- a hot pink Bentley Continental GT. Hopefully the same thieves that took $2 million worth of jewels from the heiress' home won't get their hands on this $200,000 coupe.

Hotel Cipriani,Venice..

Venice virgins can be forgiven for thinking that the city's best hotel should be close to San Marco or on the Grand Canal. Not so. Insiders know that you want to look over to the main island while avoiding the hordes of tourists, who can be more plentiful than the pigeons. There's nothing quite like waking up in the Hotel Cipriani, which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year. That location, for starters. It's on Giudecca Island facing San Marco, amid a sea of quiet streets, sprawling gardens, and that giant saltwater pool (hotel lore says it was planned in feet but the designer built it in meters, thus tripling its size). The full glory of Venice is suddenly yours — you can actually imagine being here when the city was a world power of its own.
Be aware that rooms vary in size and have a certain faded look, so ask for dimensions and try to snag a lagoon view. (Management tends to favor repeat guests, but persevere.) Avoid the new annex altogether, which has small rooms and a less glamorous feel. Even better — though it costs a mint — choose a room in the Vendramin, a restored waterfront palazzo that comes with a fleet of private butlers. It's no wonder Clooney often makes the Cipriani his bachelor pad when in town for the film festival.

Bomb Blast at Iligan City today..12/18/08

ILIGAN CITY, Philippines -- (UPDATE 6) Explosions rocked two shopping centers here Thursday afternoon and two women were seen on the malls’ videos as having planted the bombs that killed a number of people and injured several others, authorities said.
Military and police said the two people were killed and 47 injured in the blasts at the Unicity shopping center at 1:35 p.m. and at the nearby Jerry’s Shoppers Plaza 10 minutes after. Both stores are on Aguinaldo Street.
The bombs, improvised explosive devices, exploded at the baggage counters at the entrance of the establishments, police said.
Superintendent Dimacuta Sanggacala, spokesman of the Lanao del Norte police, corrected the earlier report he relayed to that six people had been killed, saying that some of those whom they thought were dead were seriously hurt.
Sanggacala also the wounded were being treated at the Sanitarium City Hospital and Dr. Uy City Hospital.
Lieutenant Esteffani Cacho, Western Mindanao spokesperson, said two people were wounded and an L-300 van was damaged in the explosion at Unicity while two were killed and two others hurt in the second blast at Jerry’s Shoppers Plaza.
She added that the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team and the K9 unit of the 403rd Brigade had been deployed to the blast sites.
An Associated Press report quoted Lieutenant Colonel Agane Adriatico, a military spokesman, as saying Muslim rebels were to blame for the attacks.
In an interview 403rd Infantry Brigade chief Colonel Nicanor Dolojan said initial findings indicated the improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were crafted out of mortar rounds, which he described as the “signature” of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).Dolojan said the motive of the attack was to “sow terror” in the city and possibly divert the military’s focus from offensive operations against MILF units the military has been targeting for attacking civilian communities in central Mindanao in August.“We are still trying to evaluate [and] we are still trying to assess [the] situation…what is really their intention. But our [offensive] operation [will] still continue,” Dolojan said.
Sanggacala said footage obtained from the closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) of both establishments showed the bombs were planted at the baggage counters by women whose faces were covered with veils.
Sanggacala said although they have not identified the perpetrators, these were “acts of terrorist groups.”
He said scene of the crime operatives (SOCO) were searching the area for more victims.
Sporadic clashes between government troops and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, an 11,000-strong rebel group fighting for self-rule in the predominantly Roman Catholic nation's south, erupted in August after the country's top court scrapped a preliminary peace deal.

World 1st Computer Rebuilt,Rebooted after 2,000 Years

A British museum curator has built a working replica of a 2,000-year-old Greek machine that has been called the world's first computer.
A dictionary-size assemblage of 37 interlocking dials crafted with the precision and complexity of a 19th-century Swiss clock, the Antikythera mechanism was used for modeling and predicting the movements of the heavenly bodies as well as the dates and locations of upcoming Olympic games.
The original 81 shards of the Antikythera were recovered from under the sea (near the Greek island of Antikythera) in 1902, rusted and clumped together in a nearly indecipherable mass. Scientists dated it to 150 B.C. Such craftsmanship wouldn't be seen for another 1,000 years — but its purpose was a mystery for decades.
Many scientists have worked since the 1950s to piece together the story, with the help of some very sophisticated imaging technology in recent years, including X-ray and gamma-ray imaging and 3-D computer modeling.
Now, though, it has been rebuilt. As is almost always the way with these things, it was an amateur who cracked it. Michael Wright, a former curator at the Science Museum in London, has built a replica of the Antikythera, which works perfectly.
In the video from New Scientist below, Wright shows how the machine works.
In short, Antikythera's user interface is deceptively simple, operated by a simple knob on the side. This conceals the intricacy within, amounting to a complex mathematical model, tracking the movements of planetary bodies and incorporating a series of submechanisms to account for the eccentricities of their rotation.
A dial on the faceplace featured the Greek zodiac and an Egyptian calendar; pointers showed the location of the moon and the five planets known at the time. On the machine's back, an upper dial shows a 19-year calendar (matching the solunar cycle) and the timing of upcoming Olympic games. A lower dial shows a 76-year cycle (when the Olympic and solunar cycles coincide) and indicates the months in which lunar and solar eclipses can be expected.
According to New Scientist, this is the first working model of the Antikythera computer to include all of the device's known features. And, like the original machine, it has been built of recycled metal plates. That's right: The Antikythera mechanism is not only the world's oldest computer, it's also the world's first green computer.

Keyboards no more by 2012..

Step aside, keyboards, laptops, and 9-to-5 jobs. A survey of more than 1,000 Internet activists, journalists, and technologists released Sunday speculates that by 2012, those quaint relics of 20th century life will fade away.
It's not a formal survey of the sort that, say, political pollsters use. Nor are computer journalists especially known for their prognosticative abilities. Still, the Pew Internet and American Life Project hopes the effort will provide a glimpse of the best current thinking about how online life will evolve in the next decade or so.
Lee Rainie and the other Pew researchers asked their survey respondents to respond to a series of questions about 2020 future scenarios, including whether the mobile phone will be the "primary" Internet connection (most agreed), whether copy protection will flourish (most disagreed), and whether transparency "heightens individual integrity and forgiveness (evenly split).
The rough consensus was that "few lines divide professional time from personal time," and that professionals are happy with the way work and play are "seamlessly integrated in most of these workers' lives."
Another, which also met with broad agreement: "Talk and touch are common technology interfaces. People have adjusted to hearing individuals dictating information in public to their computing devices. In addition 'haptic' technologies based on touch feedback have been fully developed, so, for instance, a small handheld Internet appliance allows you to display and use a full-size virtual keyboard on any flat surface for those moments when you would prefer not to talk aloud to your networked computer."
One respondent was Google chief economist Hal Varian, who said: "The big problem with the cell phone is the (user interface), particularly on the data side. We are waiting for a breakthrough."
It's easier to read the report itself, which you can find here (PDF). This is Pew's third report in the series; further reading can be found in its 2005 first survey (PDF) and 2006 second survey (PDF).

New Gadget..N97

Last 3 days ago,I was thinking to exchange my mobile from N73 Music Edition to 3110 Classic..after thinking awhile I realized that I have to change it.The reason is that,I will have an additional money and mobile,compared to my N73,which is 2nd hand,and it has fall downs many times from my pocket,sometimes the mobile will hang and in fact some of my text messages was not delivered on time to the recepient.At first I was hesitant to do it,but then I realized that since I was planning to buy a new mobile,hopefully next year,I am exchanging it now.One of the mobile I saw in internet was really nice and expensive,may be I will buy and maybe I will not buy this one.So far the mobile I receive now was good but not expensive,but performance level was satisfactory.Hope I can have this mobile,if my pocket permits!!ha ha ha..may kamahalan pero sophisticated ang dating!!

You may rest in Peace Mac2!!

We are not certain of our life here in this world.One maybe young or too young that he did not enjoy life,but maybe taken by our Lord,untimely.Sad news for everyone that your loveones,close friend,parents or anyone close to your heart will go,without telling you,because the call for him to the Lord is untimely.Last week I called my cousin,and on that talk she told me about what happen to one of my friend's son.The boy was diagnosed of Leukemia(Blood disorder) last 2 months ago in one of the public hospital in Southern Leyte.Very sad because the boy was just 15 years old,loving and caring son to his parents.Eventually they went to Manila(PGH) for the Chemotheraphy session,but unfortunately his condition worsens and this young boy died on December 5,2008 at 12:35am.This young boy was not only loving and caring to his parents,but also to his brothers and family.To You Mac2,you may rest in peace!!We love you so much!!

Derrick Rose cuts apple,arms..

According to the Chicago Tribune's Full-Court Press blog, Bulls rookie Derrick Rose missed Monday's practice after he needed 10 stitches to close a gash suffered at home while — you're not going to believe this one — slicing an apple in bed. Amazing.
"It was a silly incident," Rose said. "I was cutting up some food and I laid on a knife getting lazy in bed. I went to go get a bottle of water, came back, forgot the knife was there, then sat down and sliced my arm."
Rose is expected to play Tuesday night against the Knicks at the United Center, which is good news, but it begs the question: why is Rose cutting Red Delicious apples with a machete? That seems excessive.

After more than 10 years..

Hindi ko akalain na makikita ko pa ang dati kung kaibigan,after more than 10 years,na wala man lang akong balita tungkol sa kanya..what a small world!Dito ko pa siya makikita sa KSA,kung di dahil sa friendster,nagkaroon kami ng contact at simula noon..we seldom talk each other sa phone..Until now single pa rin siya,pero nagkaroon na daw siya ng asawa..(di sila kasal)pero nagkahiwalay din sila,masakit man ang pangyayari pero kailangan niya ng lumayo sa Pinas para makalimutan ang masakit na kasaysayan niya sa pag-ibig.Heto siya ngayon nakipagsapalaran sa Gitnang Silangan sa Saudi Arabia..sabi niya sa akin..baka sa darating na panahon ang swerte naman ang darating sa kanyang buhay,na sana maging maligaya naman siya sa kanyang buhay pag-ibig.Sa yo bestfriend,ako ay nanalangin na ang lahat na pangarap mo sa buhay ay matupad,ang ikaw sana ay liligaya lalo na sa buhay pag-ibig..At higit sa lahat,huwag kalimutan ang ating magulang,na siyang gabay natin sa ating mga munting pangarap sa buhay..mabuhay ka Bestfriend!!
