A rare two-headed snake was found by a farmer in a village in Alicante. The snake with four eyes, two tongues and two sets of eyes is not studied by Spanish scientists. According to preliminary studies, the snake can use both of its heads at the same time. Further down the line, they are trying to see if the snake has two separate digestive tracts and if a head dominates the other.

Fact Check: Obama and Oil Money

Fact Check: Obama and Oil Money

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Sen. Barack Obama has seized on a key feature of voters' economic concerns — rising fuel prices — and is casting himself as the candidate who could bring about energy independence because he is not beholden to energy companies.

Last week, Obama aired a television ad in Pennsylvania called "Nothing's changed" that outlines his energy proposals while declaring, "I don't take money from oil companies or Washington lobbyists, and I won't let them block change anymore."

THE SPIN: In his ad, Obama states: "Since the gas lines of the '70's, Democrats and Republicans have talked about energy independence, but nothing's changed except now Exxon's making $40 billion a year, and we're paying $3.50 for gas. ... I don't take money from oil companies or Washington lobbyists, and I won't let them block change anymore. They'll pay a penalty on windfall profits. We'll invest in alternative energy, create jobs and free ourselves from foreign oil."

The Clinton campaign last week accused Obama of "false advertising."

"Senator Obama says he doesn't take campaign contributions from oil companies but the reality is that Exxon, Shell, and others are among his donors," Clinton spokesman Phil Singer said.

AZ Island - The Floating Ship Island by Alstom Marine and Jean-Philippe Zoppini

0 comments

The company Alstom Marine and architect Jean-Philippe Zoppini are working together on an ambitious futuristic project: AZ Island. This titanic project for a high-tech, artificial island capable of movement. If AZ Island eventually sees the light of day, it will measure 400 meters long by 300 meters wide and be able to welcome up to 10,000 passengers. The ovoid island’s shape and size - 29 floors high and a surface area equivalent to 4 football fields - will necessarily limit its speed (4 times slower than a cruise ship). Obviously, the island will be too large to berth. A boat or helicopter will therefore be needed to access its cabin; for this reason, a landing pad and marina have been planned. The AZ Island will be big enough and durable enough to withstand 60 foot waves and hurricanes.

Why Bill Maher is the most UNLUCKY person on Earth?

2 comments

In this video; he is talking about religion. (an offensive video)

Why Bill Maher is the most UNLUCKY person on Earth?

1-) He is very unlearned about religions, relation between religions and the history of religions. He just memorized some verses which has easy keywords to generate humuor of it. If you don't live like how do you believe, you'll start to believe how you live. Bill Maher is the best example for that.

2-) Christianity is not the same christianity now. History knows that, the last version is the changed version. The religion that he makes fun with, is belongs to his grandfathers.

3-) He is not funny. He tries but he is not funny. Making fun with verses and creation is not funny. But if you hold a joke in your fingers and shake it 5 times, probably you'll able to make american people laugh.

4-) He has fans. This makes him unlucky more than anyone on Earth. Think about that you are a wrong person there is no one to tell you that you are wrong around you. People loves you, they pay to hear from you etc but no one say that you are wrong. I see him and his fans at the same roop.

5-) He says we should easily say; "i don't know". What an easy thing isn't it? How we couldn't think about that before? Huh. We have only one life, and think that, we are accepting to know anything about it. Just like closing eyes (not being blind). We'll die and we don't know what will happen to us? I don't think that it's that easy to overcome with this feeling.

6-) He talks about wasting life. This is the funniest thing i've heard from him in last days. He should watch his videos more and more i think.

7-) He likes to make fun with virgins of heaven. Probably he is living in his Dreamland. Holly Books are sent to humanity. Do you know humanity? Let me tell you about humans; they rape, they kill, they lie, they break hearts, they steal, most of them idiots, most of them cruels, most of them can do everything for money,most of them can do everything for women. Holly Books sent to people by their Creator. And only their Creator can know their needs and interests. Who do you think who you are? How can you criticize a holly book? Don't you think that you are being offensive to billions? Why don't you respect? Why don't you respect billions. Do you want us to respect you and you make fun with our reasons of living? I think you should find a better way for yourself. I know there is no one around you to say these things but believe me, you are still young and you have enough time to research "all religions" (not handmade ones) . Holly books are for all humanity ok? All humans love virgins ok? I think you love that too Mr High Man. I know that you dislike lowly thinks. Yeah i see that on the picture. You are very high my friend.

8-) Atheism is a Human Ideology. Religions are God's Ideology. We humans have made too many wrongs. Religions are over the time, but other human ideologies are interlocutory.


Why Atheism will be Bill Maher's sad end?

1-) Same end for everyone is insane.
We look at a painting of a painter but we look at the nature of nothing? Just think deeply. You come to the World, you live a life, and you die. This is for everyone,absolutely everyone. Some of us become cruel creatures, some of us live like angels. And in atheism, we plan a same “end” for all of us.

2-) Coincidence is insane.
We see an absoulte math in nature and we talk about coincidence. Milimetric changes between the sun and the earth can burn whole earth and we call this magnificent ratio as coincidence. What a coincindence, thank you coincidence, i’m alive because of you, peh.

3-) Will Power.
Think about people turn a tea tray (360 degrees) and glasses don’t fall. They give a decision for the “speed”. There is a decision for the speed of the turn. If they turn it a bit slower, glasses would fall, if they turn a bit faster, probably glasses would fly. But there is a decision behind thi successful turn. It’s will power. Think about the Earth’s turning speed. If it was a bit faster, probably we wouldn’t live. There is an exact, absolute,magnicificient,right decision behind the speed. Nothing is coincindence.

4-) To see the people you love again.
Think about your Daddy, what would you do if he die? Come on my friend, you just have one life and one dad for that. He is your dad, come on,what does it mean to you? What would you do if you can’t see him again? How would you overcome with this feeling? I repeat, i’m not asking how do you delay? Because i know how do you delay it. If you are atheist, this thought is quite enough to make your life dark.

5-) Forget about Trends, Give a French Collection U.K for them
You won’t gain anything from being an atheist. You’ll just lose. You’ll just deppressed. I know it’s trendy, if you believe, trendy deppressed generation will laugh at your face, i know, but who cares? This is your life and you are spending it with waste. Forget about trends, trends won’t save you, Steve Jobs won’t able to save you, or your favourite music group. No one cares about you, can’t you see? Most of the things you are busy with are nothing. They won’t make you immortal or they won’t make your life stronger. You are just wasting your time.

You closed your curtains and say that Everywhere is dark, No my friend, The Sun is still shining, only your room is dark…

(Grammer Polices, please go away, just read the articles, i don’t want you to teach me English,when will you give up to be busy with little things?)

I DON'T WANT TO MAKE FUN WITH YOU. BECAUSE MAKING FUN WITH PEOPLE AND THEIR BELIEFS IS THE MOST "LOWLY" THING ON THE EARTH. So i don't wan to be lowly, Otherwise, Bill wouldn't love me.

Story
An ancient demon, called Jashiin, emerges from a two-thousand year-old sleep to unleash his wrath upon the Kingdom of Zeliard. Justifying his actions as a revenge upon the ancient kings of Zeliard, Jashiin does so by causing a sand rain to continue for 117 days, turning the kingdom into desert; as well, he turns King Felishika's only daughter, princess Felicia, into stone.
The protagonist and player-controlled character, Duke Garland, is sent by the spirits to aide Zeliard and save Felicia.
Duke Garland must recover the Nine Tears of Esmesanti, stolen by Jashiin from Felicia upon turning her to stone, for only they can reverse the enchantment. Subsequently, Duke Garland must also slay Jashiin. In order to do either, the player must pass through eight increasingly complex labyrinths, swarming with Jashiin's underlings. At the end of each Labyrinth, a boss dwells, holding one of the nine Tears; the final Tear is held by Jashiin himself.
Finally, Garland may find haven in various cities and outposts not yet conquered by Jashiin, in order to rest and purchase weaponry and equipment.

Top 10 Internet Companies That Want to Pay You for Photos

0 comments

The Internet has created thousands of new and potentially lucrative earning opportunities for millions of photographers around the world. Unlike, the opportunities created for writers, photographers can potentially earn even more than writers, because of the demand both online and offline.

Magazine editors and webmasters, just to name two of them are consistently seeking high quality, unpublished, and unseen photos to publish in magazines and on websites. Many of these individuals and companies have chosen to purchase these photos from a photography broker rather than using widely circulated photos and images usually found on photo sharing websites.

The main reason is because, purchasing photography from a respected broker will ensure that the photos haven't been seen by the general public and provides the editor or webmaster an unique opportunity to use photography that may attract many more visitors or purchasers of their product.

KURT Cobain's mother and sister might lose their homes because of two thieves who bilked his estate of more than $200 million, claims his widow, Courtney Love. Earlier this month, Love made accusations against an alleged con man and con woman who can't be identified until court papers are filed. Love said they used Cobain's Social Security number to open up more than 188 credit cards in his name and refinance several homes - including Kurt's mother's, Wendy Fradenburg Cobain O'Connor.

"It's insane," Love cried in one of several ranting voice-mail messages she left us. "In Kurt's will, his mom was left 15 percent of his estate - the rest went to me and [daughter] Frances Bean. But we had to wait until the estate closed and probate was over. But it's been open 14 years! It's criminal."

Maria Freidman

Is there a style of music that she cannot master? Well, I suppose we will have to wait another year or two before she unveils her hip-hop dominatrix routine. In the meantime, Maria Friedman's new show, Re-arranged, offers a near-encyclopaedic journey through the popular songbook, from Jacques Brel to Randy Newman, Irving Berlin to Suzanne Vega. All seasoned, of course, with lashings of Sondheim.

In a way, it is too much of a good thing. Friedman is so intent on cramming in favourites that she has ended up with a programme that could be trimmed by 20 minutes or so. While her singing is confident throughout - she can leap from smudged, bluesy phrases to pristine, Streisandesque power ballads - the evening tends to ramble amiably between songs.

Ali Campbell's stormy split from UB40

After three decades and millions of records, could a pioneering supergroup implode in a hail of writs and wrangles? Our correspondent braves the bitter crossfire

Ali Campbell

Ali Campbell

It’s been several years since Ali Campbell moved out of Birmingham, but the accent remains intact. In January, when the 49-year-old singer found himself back there, he was staying at the Hotel du Vin in the city centre. His brother Robin came to pick him up and the two became lost amid the regenerated city’s vastly altered landscape. “Nothing is the same as it was,” he says.

Like much of what he’ll go on to talk about, the words chime with an accidental sort of poignancy. Two months isn’t a long time – but then, two months ago, no one had any reason to suspect that, after so long together, the most successful reggae band in British history was on the brink of an acrimonious split. Right now though, UB40’s former front-man is no longer on speaking terms with Robin or the rest of the group. As Campbell himself says: “It takes a lot for eight members to stay together for 28 years. If you think about it, there’s only U2 – and there’s twice as many of us.”

His CV suggests a master of the balancing act: highly regarded author and respected broadcaster, veteran radio presenter for the BBC and controller of arts for LWT, equally at home in the House of Lords and working-class Cumbria, where he was born in 1939 and still has a frequently visited cottage. Yet, as he talks to me over coffee in the conservatory kitchen of his Hampstead house, he soon reveals that, behind this assured-seeming public equilibrium, there has been nightmarish private turmoil.

New traffic penalties ensure drivers come first in parking disputes

Parking ticket

Many drivers do not realise that they have the right to have their case decided by an independent adjudicator

Drivers will be given the benefit of the doubt in disputes over parking tickets that arrive by post, The Times has learnt.

Caroline Sheppard, the chief adjudicator of the new traffic penalties coming into force tomorrow, intends the move to be seen as a tilt towards motorists in their continuing battle with local authorities over parking.

As part of this drivers will also be given new rights to appeal against parking tickets.

Ms Sheppard said that she was determined to ensure that councils could not ride roughshod over the rights of car drivers. She said that motorists would also be able to have their appeals heard by telephone instead of attending a hearing, in a move designed to encourage more drivers to challenge their tickets. The eight million drivers who receive parking tickets each year needed to be aware of their rights to challenge “unfair” penalties, she said.

Tendai Biti, the party's secretary-general, said: "We've won this election... we are massacring them. There is no way Mugabe can claim victory unless it is through fraud." (Observer)

Evangelical group pays for MP’s researchers ahead of embryo vote

An evangelical Christian charity opposed to embryo research is paying the wages of as many as 12 researchers in the Commons. Christian Action, Research and Education (Care), which has links to the US Christian right, placed interns with MPs in advance of next month's vote on the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill. The Charity Commission is to investigate its lobbying activities as rules ban charities from giving "support or funding" to politicians or their parties. (Independent on Sunday)

Emma Watson is On the Wrong Way With Alcohol

Yeah,if this is the photo of Emma Watson and if this is alcohol, She is on the wrong way. Early fame comes with hard responsibilities and situations to overcome at early ages. She doesn't look like the next Hayden Panetteire or any other kid stars but still i feel pity for her. I hope she would meet with good people in her life. Otherwise, consumption society will use and finish her with cruel eyes.

Congragulations to Lance Ramoth. I don't know if he is a professional photographer or an amateur but i can easily say that, this is one of the best photo i've seen in last days. I don't want to underline the great photo technic but i just want to underline that; this photo is life. We are humans and sometimes we need something to turn back to life. This photo is a way i think. Life is beautiful and this photo is the proof. Congragulations Lance again.
