Norwegian Noah's Ark-The first Global Seed Bank

Noah built an ark,took his family members and representatives of all the animals and birds, escaped from the flood,sailed away and reached to the mountains of Ararat. Norway also created an ark,loaded 4,5 million batches of seeds from all the known plants and crops of the world.The Norwegian ark would not sail anywhere;it would be waiting for the disaster hundred meters deep inside the mountain’s permafrost of Norwegian Arctic archipelago.
God commanded Noah to build the Ark and Mr.James Bond 007 inspired Norway to
Construct the “Doomsday Vault.”

Japan's High - Speed Internet Satellite

Japan launched an experimental satellite aimed to provide high –speed Internet access across Asia.
We all are obsessed with speed; it has become more important than accuracy.
It is a frequent used expression - speed car,speedboat,speed dial and speed of all electronic items.We eat fast food;we go to hospital for a quick fix.The aeroplanes are speedy,wind - speed trains,quick delivery,quick acting poisons and speed dating.Many are high on “speed drugs."
Japan is about to provide 150 times faster than present Internet speed.
We are moving with incredible speed,but destination yet to be determined.

Spring around the corner

All the trees and bushes around the house remained darken in colours,unaware of surrounding, helpless and lifeless standing in the cold winter.I thought about the time when the whole yard was remarkably coherent.
I paint flowers,dream about green grass and sunny days and all that is around the corner.

The night of the Lunar Eclipse

The Earth came between the sun and the moon –all three in a row.
Millions experienced the eclipse with excitement and millions beset by superstitious fears.
Some considered the event magical, others feared more natural disasters,some believed it was bad for the rulers,some villagers covered their water wells to prevent demons dropping poison into them and few were worried about their loved one.
The natural phenomenon could not bring any grief. We ourselves are quite capable to bring all the disasters without any help. The lunar eclipse was a magical event.

Looking for Earth-like planets

The astronomers from the University of Arizona believe that there may be hundreds of undiscovered worlds in outer part of our Solar System.Last week in a meeting of American Association for the Advancement of Science in Boston, Alan Stern from NASA said,
“I believe Other Earth –like planets might contain life and allow human colonies to be set on them. “
We are in search of new worlds,We are doing our best to alter the world where we live by dynamiting the mountains,manipulating the weather by cloud seeding,placing satellite with dangerous chemicals in the space and then shooting them down with missiles,every day dropping tons of bombs on Earth and are ruthlessly busy in the process of deforesting.
We are dumping the waste in oceans,our sea-going robotic gliders and the robo –subs are voyaging in Antarctica’s depths on unknown missions.We are provoking hurricanes, storms and tsunamis.We are robbing the seas from their treasures.
We are drinking polluted water,consuming genetic manipulated food and breathing air full of chemicals.The birds, animals and human beings are suffering from incurable diseases.
We are in a trance situation of terror and delight,we are cruel,we are the victims and we are looking for new worlds to set new colonies.

US plans to shoot its satellite

President George W.Bush approved the option to fire a missile to destroy the broken spy satellite,which contains hazardous chemicals.Last year China shot down its satellite to test the new missile system.
Hope it is not the beginning of a new anti-satellite weapons programme.

Saudi Arabia bans Valentine

It was the Annual Cattle & Camel festival in Saudi Arabia.
He was dressed in black and she was wrapped in sharp bright lushly colours.
He secretly examined her for a while and then advanced towards her openly.Their eyes met and both smiled.There was no exchange of words,instead he touched her lips and a minute latter tenderly opened her mouth and thoroughly checked her teeth.Then he grabbed her back,pinched it strongly and clapped it hard with smile.
According to the Bedouin traditions he offered her tribe seven full-grown camels in exchange and next day they got married.Saudi Arabia banned Valentine’s celebrations; they have their own Saudi Valentine – The Cattle & Camel festival.
In North America and Europe it was a romantic day:long red roses, colourful elegant boxes of delicious chocolates,Champaign and kisses.Stockholm’s departmental store PUB arranged a black curtained tent in the main entry for couples to kiss and be photographed without any charges.
It was a busy day for speed dating,young men looking for “sugar mamma” and ladies for “boy toys” – Happy Valentine!

Iranian sisters to be stoned to death

2 married sisters were tried and convicted for illegal relations and received 99 lashes.
One of the sister’s husbands,dissatisfied from the sentence took the case to the Supreme Court and presented a video film evidence,showing sisters sitting in the company of men.
The Supreme Court found both sisters guilty of adultery and now the Iranian sisters are facing being stoned to death.
In Saudi Arabia a teen-age victim of gang rape was sentenced to 200 lashes and six-month jail. In Sweden a man raped his 4 years granddaughter.The court showed leniency since the grandfather showed remorse.In another case a child rapist got suspended sentence;the decision was motivated by the fact that in sexual act the child was on top of the rapist,which showed that no violence was used and it could be consensual sex.
In Queensland, Australia 9 men raped 10 years old child and they all pleaded guilty.
The district court gave the gang members 6 months suspended prison sentence and recorded no conviction against them.The judge stated in her verdict that the child victim “probably agreed to have sex with the gang."

The world legal and justice system is completely broken,because of inadequate legal representation,innocents are convicted or even getting capital punishment on daily bases,the biased media is leading all judicial processes in public,hundreds and thousands of innocents have been sitting in secret jails for years without any trail, the Geneva convention and human rights violation is seen everywhere all around the world and the criminals are sitting in judgement.
Extremists have hijacked the world judicial system.

Cloud Seeding in Beijing

Thousands of scientists and experts have been engaged in cloud seeding for the last few decades around the world.They got desired weather in the targeted areas.They got both rain and snow at will;the cloud seeding reduced the fog at airports for the flights. But the modified weather brought some wild storms,heavy rainfall,floods and wild tidal waves and increased average sea level as well.
I am a modern person,who eats modified food,wears smooth synthetic fibre,lives in an apartment on 68th floor,works in a company,which transport toxic waste and breaths modified ideal air.I was in Ache province when Tsunami killed thousands,I experienced Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and a week ago I was stranded at railway station in South China when the country experienced its worst snowfall in a century.I am surely going to enjoy modified weather in Beijing during the Olympic Games.

Spectacular Palm in Madagascar

It was the largest palm tree on the island of Madagascar.It stood there more than hundred years;nobody ever paid any attention to the giant size or 5 meter long leaves of this spectacular palm.One day the braches of this palm became covered with thousands of tiny flowers.The tree expended so much energy on flowering that it collapsed and died.
It took more than hundred years for the palm to get attention of botanists.
Its manic creativity revealed that it was unique of its own kind.
Death usually reveals secrets.

Quasi Universal Intergalactic Denomination-QUID

A team of scientist from the National Space Centre and the University of Leicester has created a unit of currency QUID for space travellers.One Quid would cost about 8,68 Euros or 12,5 dollars.It could be purchased in any currency of the world in Travelex shops.

Bears confused by record warm winter in Sweden

The record mild winter in Sweden has affected bears in Kolmorden Safari park in the south of Stockholm.The bears hibernate from the end of October until April,but this winter they did not sleep yet,they are confused.Yesterday I saw a squirrel on a tree that took high jump from a branch to the next tree; the squirrels are already up believing as if spring was already there.
In Sweden it is mild winter,but Iraq,Jordan,Syria and Jerusalem is experiencing snowfall.
It is confusing time for all of us.
