Kelly Will Marry To Kelly

by

I ran across a cool and interesting story about a couple who has the same name (Kelly Hildebrandt) and is going to marry each other in this October.

 

 

They both found each other on Facebook. Kelly the girl started searching her own name on Facebook and found one who lived in Texas. She started the conversation by sending a quick Hi message to Kelly the guy. That’s when the connection has started.!

Arctic Ice is Thining

by

Daily Tech reported that NASA study showed how Arctic sea ice thinned between the winters of 2004 and 2008. According to the satellite measurements, the ice has been thinning at a rate of 7 inches per year for a total of 2.2 feet in the last year.  Multi-year ice, meanwhile, shrunk by 42 percent.  Ice cover, meanwhile decreased 595,000 square miles (nearly the size of Alaska’s land area!!)

 

 

The new study is much more accurate than previous studies that estimated ice volume based on area.  The team says a combination of recent global warming and anomalies in patterns of sea ice circulation are to blame for the melting sea ice.

 

So.. please raise awareness of global warming!!

Coffee May Lower Alzheimer’s Risk

by

CBS News reported that two new studies found that a morning cup of coffee might help treat or prevent memory loss.

“Their thinking is that actually the caffeine worked by decreasing the inflammation in the brain, cuts down on the buildup of protein we see in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s disease.”

No More Famous Salesman on TV

by

I just learned that the guy whom I have seen VERY OFTEN on the commercials to sell all kinds of products which he was salesmen for just passed away.

 

 

I’ve seen him for years but never known his name until now. His name is Billy Mays. He was funny but good on the commercials. The most notable commercial he did probably is for OxiClean.

 

 

On June 29, after an initial autopsy on Mays’ body, Dr. Vernard Adams, the Hillsborough County, Florida medical examiner, stated that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease and that heart disease was the likely cause of his death. However, a final determination as to the cause of death would not be made until toxicology and tissue tests were complete.

 

RIP .. Billy Mays.. You can sell anything!

It’s such a sad news to hear that Michael Jackson passed away yesterday. As of now, we don’t know exactly what really happened to him until we  saw results from an autopsy on him later today.

 

New Strain of Swine Flu in Brazil

by

Hmmm.. this is not good. The swine flu started to create a new strain. The fox news reported that the scientists uncovered the new strain after examining samples from a patient who was hospitalized in Sao Paulo in April. The 26-year-old, who developed flu symptoms after returning from Mexico, has since made a full.

 

The variant has been called A/Sao Paulo/1454/H1N1 by the Adolfo Lutz Bacteriological Institute, which compared it with samples of the H1N1 swine flu from California.

 

 

But.. don’t panic just yet. It was not yet known whether the new strain causes more severe infections than the current H1N1 strain. So.. BE SAFE!!

Texting Queen

by

Since I got my BlackBerry Curve 8900, I’ve become more a texting person. I would reply all my emails through BlackBerry, text SMS and MMS. Some might claim that the Curve keyboard is too small, but I think it’s OK for me. I have NO problem with it.

 

This morning I read the news about a texting competition arragned by L.G. National Texting Chapionship in New York on Tuesday. I used to hear about typing the typewriter contents before, but not texting contenst by using a ell phone. Surprisingly, a 15 year-old girl won the $50,000 grand prize. She claimed that she texted 500 messages a day!

 

There were all kinds of weird challenges. One of them was blindfolding while texting. Another round tested contestants’ basic of texting acronyms. And the end, it was a tiebreaker. Two girls had to text this text:

 

Zippity Dooo Dahh Zippity Ayy…MY oh MY, what a wonderful day! Plenty of sunshine Comin’ my way….Zippitty Do Dah Zippity Aay! WondeRful Feeling Wonderful day!”

 

The winner was Kate Moore of Des Moines, Iowa.

 

Congratulations!! Read more details about the news from CNN

Six Flags Filing for Bankruptcy

by

Theme-park chain Six Flags announced Saturday that it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 🙁  What a sad news!! I went to Six Flags in CA like many many years ago and I loved it. I remembered that there were a lot of long-ride roller coasters which were fun fun fun. I had a great time there. It was too sad that I’ve been there only once. I never really had a chance to Six Flags again even though they have it in New Orleans and Atlanta which are the city that I have visited the most.

 

 

However, the filing will not affect the operation of the company’s 20 parks in the United States, Mexico and Canada.  So, I guess Six Flags company may struggle with financial problems and they are trying to survive from economic crisis situation. They cannot afford to lose the parks yet. Cool!
