My wife asked me, "How many women have you slept with?"

I proudly replied, "Only you, Darling. With all the others I was awake."

Iranian Crocodile Lady : Elham Abtin

Even with all restrictions, Iranian women play an active role in the society in many fields including environmental sciences.
Elham Abtin is one of the best examples. Abtin, an environmental expert, works at the center for crocodile breeding and research center in the city of Chahbahar in southeastern Iran.
While many men shy away from such a job, Abtin has no problem handling the crocodiles.

Solar Panels for Your Pants !

More solar-powered items are coming out every day, it seems. We've seen boats that run on solar power, and even plans for a Japanese space station to get its energy from solar power. But soon you'll be able to add your name to the list, because a new clothing line from Silvr Lining puts solar panels on you.

For the low, low price of $920, you can own a pair of Go Urban Cargo Pants, which boasts "fly front, low-slung drawstring waist, and two back patch pockets with button down flaps" on the company's website. Oh, and the main reason you might pay nearly $1,000 for a pair of pants: "two side cargo pockets each comes with independently functioning power supply."

The cargo pants are just one item in the new clothing line from Silvr Lining that can generate its own solar power. They won't generate enough renewable energy to power an NFL stadium, but the pocket-sized solar panels will be able to charge small electronic items like MP3 players and smart phones.

The 6 x 8 inch solar panels can be connected to one of those devices through a USB port, allowing a supply voltage of 5 volts, according to a company (PDF).

As if $920 weren't enough, if you want to charge more than one item with each solar panel, it's going to cost you another $20.

The GO Collection, as it's called, also has a hip-length Director’s Jacket, hooded Utility Vest, 3/4 length Myer’s Topper overcoat and Urban Cargo Pant. That way, as Gizmag points out, "You can be decked from head to toe in sunlight harnessing apparel."

Just make sure to take the solar panels out of your pants before you throw them in the wash.

Give Up the Habit of Worrying !

As we grow in strength in our spiritual life, we give up the habit of worrying.
It serves no purpose other than to make us feel tense
and miserable.
When I stop fretting about things that are beyond my control and focus instead on generating optimistic and kind thoughts, my life can begin to flow in ever more positive directions.
Such a light and easy approach to life enables me to take everything in my stride.
From :Zubia



Once when Buddha was walking from one town to another with a few of his followers, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha said to one of his disciples, I am thirsty. Go and get me some water from that lake there. The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes in the water, and right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake.As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The disciple thought, How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink! So he came back and said to Buddha, The water in the lake is very muddy. I dont think it is fit to drink. After about half an hour, again Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha. Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and said, See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be, and the mud settled down on its own and then you got clear water. Your mind is also like that! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You dont have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.
