Chimpanzee Attack Oprah

During the Oprah Winfrey Show, Charla Nash, the woman who was mauled by a 200-pound chimpanzee last February 16 this year revealed her face and shared how her sightless life went after that tragic incident.

The attack took place outside Herold's home, when Herold called Nash to help her shepherd the 14-year-old chimpanzee, Travis, back into her house. Police shot and killed Travis after he attacked Nash.

Nash's legal filing describes her injuries as "catastrophic." She lost both hands and incurred "traumatic facial injury" that includes the loss of her nose, upper and lower lips, eyelids and the bony structures in her mid-face.

Doctors have been able to reattach one of her thumbs, which Winfrey gently shook at the end of the interview. Asked what she would tell those who saw her and didn't know how to react, Nash said, "I'm the same person I've always been. I just look different. You know, and there's things that happen in life that, you know, you can't change it. You know, it's a tragedy."

Lara Stone: Blackface in French Vogue

Did You know that White people dress or masked as blackface is offensive as it entails racism? That's the controversy now with the October 2009 issue of French Vogue Fashion Magazine as it featured supermodel Lara Stone dressed in blackface.
Lara Stone in blackface

In the October issue of French Vogue, which is dedicated to "Supermodels," there are no black models. No Naomi Campbell, no Tyra Banks, no Iman, no Alek Wek, no Liya Kebede, no Chanel Iman. Instead, Dutch model Lara Stone appeared in a 14-page editorial in blackface. Aside from the fact that models of many nationalities have gained a greater presence in the fashion industry and should have been used in this magazine, today in 2009 we should all know that white people dressing in blackface is offensive.

What is Fujiwara Effect?

In the Philippines, many of us have heard the term Fujiwara Effect since Super Typhoon Peping came back when it was supposed to be out of the country. This behaviour is called Fujiwara Effect.

But what is exactly the Fujiwara Effect means? The effect is named after Sakuhei Fujiwhara, the Japanese meteorologist who initially described it in a 1921 paper about the motion of vertices in water.

Fujiwhara effect or Fujiwara interaction is a type of interaction between two nearby cyclonic vortices, causing them to appear to "orbit" each other. When the cyclones approach each other, their centers will begin orbiting cyclonically about a point between the two systems. The two vortices will be attracted to each other, and eventually spiral into the center point and merge. When the two vortices are of unequal size, the larger vortex will tend to dominate the interaction, and the smaller vortex will orbit around it.

The effect is often mentioned in relation to the motion of tropical cyclones, although the final merging of the two storms is uncommon. The effect becomes pronounced in these storms when they approach within about 1,450 km (900 mi) of each other and are at tropical storm strength or stronger.

What is Corpus Delicti?

During my Jurisprudence class, I remember the term corpus delicti used by my teachers. I guessed that it has something to do with a dead body or corpse from the first word corpus. What I don't know is the meaning of the second word delicti.

Corpus delicti (plural: corpora delicti) (Latin: "body of crime") is a term from Western jurisprudence which refers to the principle that it must be proven that a crime has occurred before a person can be convicted of committing the crime. For example, a person cannot be tried for larceny unless it can be proven that property has been stolen. Likewise, in order for a person to be tried for arson it must be proven that a criminal act resulted in the burning of a property. Black's Law Dictionary (6th ed.) defines "corpus delicti" as: "the fact of a crime having been actually committed." Source: wwwen.wikipedia.org,

Types of Kissing You Might Want To Know

On my previous post at my other blogs, I discussed the health and relationship benefits of kissing; and as I promised, here are the tree types of kissing, you might want to know:

Types of Kissing:
  1. Natural Kissing
  2. Sensual Kissing
  3. Symbolic Kissing
  1. Natural Kissing: Anthropologists tell us that way back in prehistoric times, mothers realized that babies choke to death on ordinary adult food. They also learned that babies thrive if fed on a meal pre-chewed by the mother. Holding a baby in one hand and a freshly slaughtered rabbit in the other, mouth-to-mouth feeding was found to be an efficient way to feed, with the minimum waste and maximum accuracy; just like chick birds are fed. Mouth-to-mouth feeding is still practiced in some cultures to this day. From this feeding function, mouth-to-mouth contact became a sign of trust, dependence and affection between mother and child, and this comforting habit carried on into adulthood.
  2. Sensual Kissing: In passion, kissing is done simply for the pleasure of kissing or as part of foreplay. Whether it's with eyes open or closed, a saliva-laden minuet, industrial vacuum cleaner, all-stars tongue wrestling or tonsil hockey, the secret of a good kiss is progressing slowly to discover what your partner responds to. Kissing is a very mutual activity. A selfish, one-sided kiss cannot possibly give the same satisfaction.
  3. Symbolic Kissing:

    The kissing of icons as a sign of veneration is common in many religions. In Mecca, the Black Stone has been worn hollow by centuries of kissing.

    In Christianity, we see dozens of biblical references to kissing. The reference in I Samuel 20:9 was a pretty nasty kiss of death, but the most infamous kiss was from Judas in betraying Jesus. St. Paul instructed Christians to "greet one another with a holy kiss".

    Even today in churches, kissing forms a part of religious ritual. The 'Kiss Of Peace' is a ceremonial gesture used as a sign of love and union in some Christian churches during celebration of the Eucharist. It is customary in some churches to kiss an icon to venerate or honour the person portrayed in the icon, which is on the slippery slope to icon worship.

When people kiss, they turn their heads slightly to the right to avoid breaking each other's nose. Even in a symbolic kiss, the head tips to the right. For example in the Armenian Church the person offering the greeting tips his head first to the right, and then left of the person being greeted.
Why most people, from every culture, tip their heads to the right and not the left when kissing, is one of life's deep mysteries. Our research suggests that it makes no difference whether the kisser is left- or right-handed.

Who is Bernard Goldberg?

Many people around the globe are now in search for Bernard Goldberg, meaning, this man is the hottest search of today. But who is Bernard Goldberg anyway? And what makes him the man of the hour?

According to Wikipedia: Bernard Goldberg, also known as Bernie Goldberg, is a ten-time Emmy Award Winning American writer, journalist, and political commentator. Goldberg is currently a commentator for Fox News and a correspondent for HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.

Here's a line from his latest interview with John Hawkins: The reason they do that John is so I'll be automatically marginalized. I wrote in "Bias" that I would make racial discrimination a criminal offense, not just a civil offense. On gay rights, I don't know anyone more Libertarian than me. I don't want the government getting involved in it. I'm pro-abortion with reservations. I've never set foot in a country club in my life.

I consider myself to be an old-fashioned liberal. I'm a liberal the way liberals used to be when they were like John F. Kennedy and when they were like Hubert Humphrey. When they were upbeat and enthusiastic and mainstream. I am not a liberal the way liberals are today at least as exemplified by Al Franken and Michael Moore, where they're angry, nasty, closed minded, & not mainstream, but fringe.

I think this is what really irks the media. That this is coming from one of them. I was one of them for 28 years. The name of your website is Right Wing News, right?

What is Sulfur Hexafluoride?

What is Sulfur Hexafluoride? What's in it that brought it to the top 100 of ggole's most searched keyword? To answer these questions, here are the facts:

Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is an inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-toxic and non-flammable gas.


Medical: SF6 is relatively slowly absorbed by the bloodstream, therefore it is used to provide a long-term tamponade or plug of a retinal hole in retinal detachment repair operations.

Tracer compound: Gaseous SF6 is an ongoing commonly used tracer gas for use in short-term experiments of ventilation efficiency in buildings and indoor enclosures, and for determining infiltration rates. Two major factors recommend its use: Its concentration can be measured with satisfactory accuracy at very low concentrations, and the Earth’s atmosphere has a negligible concentration of SF6.

Other uses:

Sulfur hexafluoride is also used as a reagent for creating thrust in a closed Rankine cycle propulsion system, reacting with solid lithium as used in the United States Navy’s Mark 50 torpedo.

SF6 plasma is also used in the semiconductor industry as an etchant.
The magnesium industry uses large amounts of SF6 as inert gas to fill casting forms.

Today, a long chain email on health care bill has been spreading, especially the health care bill page 58. A page-by-page analysis of the bill states that reform will end the health care system. Whatever it means, let's just see what happens to this bill.

Where's the shuttle landing path of the Endeavour Astronaut?

Where is the Shuttle landing path of the Endeavour astronauts? If you can remember, the Nasa has launched a shuttle  earlier this month. 

Now the crew are having problems on where to land the shuttle due to bad weather. If the weather or some other problem prevents a re-entry today, Endeavour's crew will remain in orbit an additional 24 hours and try again Saturday. 

I just hope that they're going to make it soon...


White Sox Pitcher Mark Buehrle throws perfect game

Mark Buehrle, White Sox pitcher, throws a perfect game last Thursday. Buehrle retired all 27 Tampa Bay batters to complete a 5-0 perfect game, the second in White Sox history.

Seeing the game at the espn, I remembered the baseball game played by the Cullen (from the novel/movie Twilight) Family. I really love this scene of the movie as Alice gracefully throws the ball and everyone else in the family played really exceptionally.

I'm looking forward excitedly to the showing of its next sequel, "New Moon". Can't wait to see my crush, Edward Cullen (Rob Pattinson).

Jupiter Hit By Comet

Either a comet or meteoroid hit the planet of Jupiter last Sunday and it was absorbed  by its thick atmosphere of ammonia and methane. The said comet or meteoroid left a "scar" on the planet which was seen from NASA's Infrared Telescope Facility atop Mauna Kea in Hawaii. It was first spotted by an amateur Australian astronomer, Anthony Wesley. 

"I suspect the impact scar itself should remain visible for a few days, maybe a week," said Leigh Fletcher, a scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. He also added the the "scar" is about the size of the earth.

Giant Jellyfish Found At Japan

A giant Jellyfish called Nomura's Jellyfish has been found recently at the Sea of Japan. Many were astonished due to its enormous size and thought that seeing jellyfish as big as that is something spectacular.

On the other hand, the inhabitants of the area think that this jellyfish is like a monster because it damages the nets of the fishermen, as well as, harm other sea creatures. The villagers are also afraid that big waves will result from any movement of this fish and may cause further damage to them.

The massive sea creatures, called Nomura's jellyfish, can grow 6 feet (1.83 meters) in diameter and weigh more than 450 pounds (204 kilos). Scientists think they originate in the Yellow Sea and in Chinese waters. For the third year since 2005, ocean currents are transporting them into the Sea of Japan.

Western Governors University

For those who are planning to take online bachelors degree in business, here's a good news for you. Western Governors Universityis rated as one of the top 10 Bust Buy by a consumer group. It is because they offer great deals to their students.

According to news.prnewswire.com, undergraduate tuition for WGU's College of Business programs is $2,890 per six-month term, or $23,120 for four years. However, because WGU uses a competency-based academic model that requires students to demonstrate competency in degree subjects in order to advance, students with prior education or experience or those who can commit additional time to study can often accelerate their programs, completing their degrees in less than four years, saving both time and money. Unlike most colleges, WGU does not charge tuition based on semesters or credit hours -- it is charged for six-month terms that can begin on the first day of any month.

These are really get offeran online degree can offer.

The Economic Status

The top economic adviser of U.S. President Obama, Larry Summers, had announced that the president is doing a great job to alleviate the economic depression that the world is experiencing lately.

If this is true, then it is a great news that everyone is waiting to hear since the world crisis hit everyone. Actually, people of middle and upper class are the most affected with this economic recession, since those who are already on the lower class are used to living one day at a time.

I just wished that global economic status will be uplifted sooner than later so that everyone can move forward with their lives. 


What is Quakebuttock?

What is a quakebuttock? I have just heard of this word and I really wondered what does it mean, so when I searched for its meaning on the dictionary I can't find it, well maybe our dictionary is old enough to recognize this modern word.

Some say it's the fear of clowns, being pensieve or even being naive, so to be sure I searched it on the internet and found out that quakebuttock simmple means beaing a coward, a sissy or similar implications.

Now, this can really be called the Word of the Day...


What is Bologna, Italy Known For?

What is Bologna, Italy known for? Is it the food Bolognese? Pardon my insatiable cravings for pasta (LOL). Kidding aside, that’s the first thing that comes into my mind when I heard the Word, Bologna.

But what really is it known for? In order to find out, I googled it and….jaran…..Bologna, Italy is not just famous for Bolognese (here goes my food-occupied brain again…), but it is well-known for its Oldest University, the University of Bologna, where many historical events took place during the Middle Ages. Furthermore, Bologna is also tagged as the Basket City, to signify their passion for basketball, despite the fact that Europe is famous for playing football.

I just wish I can visit the place sooner, so as to tell you more about it and not just depend on some search results…hehehe


NASA Shuttle Launch Today

Today, NASA planned to launched its new shuttle. The said launching was already been postponed three times before and this is the fourth time, the lanching is postponed. According to them, the delay is primarily caused by bad weather.

Endeavor, the shuttle's name, contains robotics that is set to do some important experiments on space, without having the risk the lives of its crew members. There will also be significant tasks assigned for the robotics to perform there.

I just hope that the crew can get home safe and sound and that the endeavor of Endeavor will be a success.

Now I wonder, what is it for.... Do you know why?

Photos of dead Saleh Kazemi were seen on the internet today as she was found dead earlier together with the famous NFL quarterback, Steve McNair. Their bodies were found in Tennessee, having fatal gunshout wounds.

Some said that this case is sort of a murder suicide since they are having an affair eventhough McNair is already married while Kazemi has already a boyfriend; but this angle is yet to confirmed by the authorities.

Speaking of Kazemi, others thought that the girl who was found dead with McNair is Jaleh Kazemi, who is a known actress in Iran, but it was already established that the dead girl is indeed, Saleh Kazemi.

Mark Derosa of Cleveland Indians was traded for Chris Perez of St. Louis Cardinals. Of course, DeRosa was disappointed when he heard the news be was never shocked because according to him, he had been reading numerous widespread rumors about his availability.

De Rpsa also added: "You're disappointed, because you want to hit the rewind button and start over here," DeRosa said. "I was just starting to get comfortable and get to know the guys.

Is There Really A Demi Moore Bush Pic?

When I search for the hottest keyword of the day, I was really amazed how Demi Moore Bush picture keyword landed on the number one spot. The first thing that came into my mind is that; Has Demi Moore married someone from former President Bush's family? and that she's into nudity again?

I'm aware that former Ghost-actress Demi Moore is into nudity before and that many of her pictures came out. I'm still confused why this search term has the number spot on google's hot trends. If you have some explanation on this, would you be kind enough to enlighten me?

How did King Charles' phobia cause his death?

King Charles VIII of France, who ascended to the throne in 1483, was obsessed with the idea of being poisoned. As his phobia grew, the monarch ate so little that he died of malnutrition circa 1498.


Those Lazy Freaks...

I'm sure most of you know people who are way too lazy in school, right? In fact, we might have predicted that they will end up as losers, right again? LOL But are you aware that there are not-so-bright students in school that became famous and notable in a very exemplary manner? Yes, this is true...

Did You Know...

Thomas Alva Edison was one of several geniuses who did poorly in school like Einstein, Newton, and Pasteur? Edison's mother, a schoolteacher, was so offended by his poor grades that she removed him from school and taught him herself.


Why Drink Water?

I don’t know exactly the reason why most of the time I don’t drink water after breakfast when I was in grade school; what I was doing was to chew candy and sometimes wait for it to melt in my mouth (this maybe the reason why I have these dreadful teeth now, If only I knew way back then…)

I can also remember that I can directly swallow a medicine tablet even without water, which was why my friends and my classmates were really amazed of it before.

Did You Know…

Drinking water after eating reduces the acid in your mouth by 61%. Now, is the time for us to make drinking-water-after-eating a habit…Don’t you think so?


Rainbow Connection

It’s been a long time since I have last seen a rainbow and I guess what?! I can not picture it anymore…All I know that it has different colors and comes out after the rain, as the song says, “ There’s a rainbow always after the rain…”

Did You Know…

If you can see a rainbow, you must have your back to the sun. If you don’t you can’t see it. Is this is? Well, maybe I don’t have my back at the sun (as it is very hot…LOL)…


Math Wizard

I am proud to say that I am very good in math, not excellent, though; and I have also been awarded as the Mathematician of the year during my High School days. But I have never tried solving this one:

Did You Know…

There are 40320 ways to arrange the other eight reindeers if we assume that Rudolph is in front… I think this can be solved through permutation…Hmmm…


What is Lunula?

Here is a very quick and short trivia for you today…

The white part of your fingernail is called lunula (lu-nyu-la). I hope you learned something from this blog today… Please come again for another useful information that may come in handy…You’ll never know…


Beautiful Eyes

I have been fascinated of people’s eyes. It is the first thing that I looked into a person. When one has a good set of eyes, I admire them and sometimes I immediately got a crush on him or her.

Did You Know…

Eyes are always the same size from birth, meaning they never grow. It is said that our nose and ears never stop growing. I haven’t noticed this fact about the eye until I have come across this trivia…


Five Years to Have Coffee

My husband is a coffee-addict before as he can consume up to ten cups a day. Gradually, I told him to reduce it to one to two cups as much as possible. At first he was constantly having headaches and it will just go away after drinking a cup of coffee. So you can just imagine, how many cups he can consume for a day, before we met…

Did You Know…

When a coffee seed is planted, it will take five years for it to yield consumable fruit

And just how many fruits of this a cup of coffee contains? Well… that’s nature’s gift, might as well, enjoy it because it is also an anti-oxidant. That’s “drink” moderately.


Humans and Dolphins’ Pleasure

It has been scientifically proven that human is the highest form of animal; we are a rational animal, so meaning, our every action must have reason. If there are times that we act like those of the lower form, it is our own choice.

Honestly, I can’t think of a better introduction or prologue for this post’s trivia without being green, so I think I have to be straight to the point now.

Did You Know…

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. I just wonder how dolphins can have pleasure under water, with their weights and size and all that… (lol)

Just another quick fact about dolphins: they sleep with their one eye open. I wish can do that…


The Strongest Muscle

Nowadays, men and women are fond of going to the gym burning our fats/calories that the have accrued during the holiday season. I bet “going to the gym” or “losing weight” is definitely in their list of New Year’s Resolution.

Some have also frequented gyms to grow muscles so that they will look more manly or sexy for the women. While some are not yet contented of their bulging triceps and biceps as well as their six (6) packs (8 packs, actually) and wants them to bulge more. Whatever their reason may be…let’s just leave them alone (hehehe). It’s their prerogative.

Did You Know…

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. I don’t exactly know the basis of this trivia. But in my “layman’s” idea, I think it’s because it can move on its own and that it flexible enough to do things that other muscles can’t.

I just remembered a record holder from the Guinness World of Records pulling a very big truck using only his tongue! Yes! This is true, I don’t know if you have seen this. Strings or ropes are tide on a pin that his also connected on his tongue. See, how strong the tongue is? Maybe, men should learn to explore their tongue’s ability to satisfy women. (this is just an honest and “clean” suggestion…lol)


Having Fun Going Brainless

I hate people who pretend that they know everything but at the same time, I am also having fun listening them and pretending that I “brainless’ in the sense that I pretend that I don’t know what they are talking about and that I am really interested in what they are telling me.
I don’t know why they have to pretend like that. Will it hurt them if they admit that they don’t know something? Or will their ego be hit “bull’s eye” when other people are aware that they know nothing? Why do they need to impress others when in fact they look like Mr. or Ms. Morones (moron)? Are they still waiting for me to slam to their face the words like this, FYI (as in Fuck You, Idiot!)? and speaking of brainless,

Did You Know…

Starfish don't have brains. I wonder how they manage to live. What tells them to eat? Their instinct?! But I thought instincts come from the brain, also, right? Hmmm…poor creature.

Back to what I have been ranting above, people like them should be glad as they are never alone… Starfish can sympathize with them…(lol)


Dentist’s Said…

Pearly white teeth, perfect set of teeth and “close-up” smile are some of the services that our dentist can offer. In addition, they have also taught us on how to brush our teeth correctly, care for them (the teeth, not the dentist…lol) and gave us other valuable information so that we can have a healthy and strong teeth.

Did You Know…

One of the advices of the dentists is to keep our toothbrush six (6) feet away from the toilet when we are on the process of flushing it. This is to avoid germs coming out of the bowl coming in contact with the toothbrush, and with our mouth, later…

I’m glad I have come to know this as it is my routine to bring my toothbrush with me inside the bathroom, when I do my rituals every morning, which includes letting go of the toxins (defecating), taking a bath and lastly, brushing my teeth.
