The following video captured the reaction of the Americans after Landon Donovan scored the qualification goal in their decider match against Algeria. The Goal was scored at the 91st minute when the game was closing. I never expected the fans there would such passion for Football or soccer as they call it ..
For urban explorers, few places are more coveted than the Catacombs of Paris. Long sealed off to the public, these harrowing subterranean chambers house an 18th century cemetery – essentially an anonymous mass grave. Beyond this, a labyrinth of tunnels extends for 280km beneath Paris in a network of disused stone mines and galleries.
The ossuary is but a small part of the city’s vast network of subterranean tunnels and caverns, created during the 18th century to house much older human remains from Paris’ overflowing cemeteries. It became a macabre tourist attraction on a small scale from the early 19th century, and was open to the public on a regular basis from 1867. It’s hard to imagine that every bone in this chillingly clinical pile belonged to a living human being. Who were they? What did they look like? Only God Knows..
The Electrolux Bio Robot Refrigerator, Is a concept that has been generating alot of buzz! This fridge is a concept where the Bio Robot cools biopolymer gel through luminescence. A non-sticky gel surrounds the food item when shoved into the biopolymer gel, creating separate pods. The design features no doors or drawers, and the food items are individually cooled at their optimal temperature thanks to the robot. And since it can take any orientation (hung vertically, horizontally, and even on the ceiling), and can be modified in size, you can fit it in any space.
A friend of mine arranged a “Diwaneya “dinner on the world cup match day one evening.
Munch Catering was taking care of the event. The menu was customized by the host and it included several type of marinated beef and chicken ,mini wagyu burgers and pizzas.
I’ve never expected the food to be as good as it was, the whole experience was just amazing food ,service, quality and value.
The event Costs 180 K.D and the food was enough for 20 persons.
You Can arrange similar event by calling Munch on 2322747.
Akramk Allah “Hansir” !
This is just an example how parents mistreat their own kids !
I don’t think these photos requires any special comment. This creature, found on Thailand, is very strange to me. You can see a lot of local folks in the background that seem to worship this creature they have “found”. The end result is an even more absurd and even humorous scene. At least they managed to turn my amazement into laughter by this baby powder and juices they brought as a tribute to this creature. They have even brought a fan to keep it well preserved for the scientists.
There has been a lot of debates about what this creature might be and that is exactly the beauty of mystery, the inability to solve it. It might be some kind of strange animal, it even looks like a mythical creature. Honestly I don’t know what to think about this funny and strange event. These pictures do raise more questions than answers…
When a World Cup goal is scored, Twitter celebrates !
The social networking site is seeing huge traffic when a big goal is scored in the soccer tournament. Though Twitter normally sees about 750 tweets per second on an average day, there were 2,940 tweets per second, then a record, after Japan scored against Cameroon on Monday.
Nearly as much traffic was reported after Brazil’s first goal against North Korea on Monday, as well as after Mexico’s tying goal against South Africa on June 11.
Twitter has yet to announce its numbers for Friday’s U.S.-Slovenia 2-2 draw and Saturday’s matches, which was likely to have caused huge amounts of activity.
Enormous traffic from the World Cup has contributed to frequent outage problems for Twitter. The site is postponing a planned network overhaul until the World Cup tsunami is over.
From the beat of the samba drums in Brazil to the ringing of cow bells in Switzerland to the Mexican wave, the idiosyncrasies of several nationalities become apparent at football matches. South Africans are no exception, as those who have descended on the country for this year’s FIFA Confederations Cup have discovered.
Vuvuzela was the South Africans method of cheering ! and for those who didnt know yet what is vuvuzela, *it is a blowing horn approximately 1 m (3 ft 3 in) in length. It is commonly blown by fans at football matches in South Africa. The instrument requires some lip and lung strength to blow and emits a loud monotone*.
The sound level of the instrument has been measured at 131 dB(A) at the opening of the horn and at 113 dB(A) two metres in front of the opening, both dangerously high levels for unprotected ears.
After the Confederations Cup FIFA received complaints from multiple European broadcasters who wanted it banned for the 2010 FIFA World Cup because the sound drowns out the commentators. Prior to the event Netherland coach Bert van Marwijk and Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso, we already mentioned, also called for a ban, the latter saying the horns make it hard for players to communicate and concentrate while adding nothing to the atmosphere.
During the world cup 2010 (now) there was an enormous number of people participating in this even who registered complaints about the tool and the unbearable noise it causes including France’s Patrice Evra, Argentina’s Lionel Messi, Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Italy’s Pazzini plus the broadcasting companies who all went on record to state that the sound of the vuvuzelas disturbed the teams’ and commentators concentration.
The south Africans in my opinion should accept these calls because this competition isn’t local and this tool is really bothering us as TV watchers ! so imagine those who are on the field !
I really wish that FIFA will ban the vuvuzela from the world cup at least for the sake of the poor kids who are attending the matches !
Cables, cables, cables. Everyone hates them. With more gadgets in our everyday lives, cables have become a large mess. Today, we arrive at the Powermat. It is a simple accessory that lets you charge all your gadgets wirelessly. Although the technology behind it, electromagnetic induction, has been around since the early 1800s, it has only reached consumer electronics recently. Simple household electronics such as the Philips Sonicare toothbrush, have used this wireless charging technology for sometime. With the Powermat, we can now charge just about any gadget: iPods, Blackberry, and Nintendo DSi.
Using Powermat is quite easy. There’s only one cable needed to power the Powermat itself. Gadgets can be placed on any of the three magnetic charging spots on the device. It plays a futuristic sound and display an LED indicator to verify that it’s charging. If you begin to get annoyed with the sounds once the “coolness-factor” fades, there are buttons on the back to adjust the volume and indicator brightness level as well. An additional powered USB port has been conveniently added to the back to charge legacy devices that don’t yet have support for the Powermat.
Thank you Brother 🙂
