Three months and tidbits!

March 5, 2009

Recession and terrorism have been the buzz words in the past three months.Apart from these, here are a few interesting tidbits of news that caught my attention, and hopefully yours too, during my 3 months of break from the blogging world.

1) The Yeti, Sasquatch, Bigfoot or the abominable Snow man, whatever you call it, perhaps, is the only creature that caught the fantasy of almost everyone in this world. Debates and controversies since years have only added to the already mysterious creature. The mystery has only increased what with the likes of Sir David Attenborough saying that the evidence of Yeti is convincing.

2) Euthanasia or ‘assisted suicide’ has always been a sort of taboo in medical field. Perhaps this has much more to it than just passing a mere bill or law. Washington State (U.S.A) is going to allow this. Read it here.

3) While this one has nothing to do in the past 3 months, I somehow, was drawn towards the phenomenon of Global Warming. Everytime scientists prove the existence of this phenomenon, someone would take the ownership of disproving it. Global Warming is still a topic of debate. Do we have enough knowledge to prove this phenomenon? Well, this one makes an interesting read.

4) This one is a far cry from the above three in terms of its “Genre”. The internet is abuzz with yet-an-other apocalypse. The 2012 phobia. Well, the Mayan Calendar seems to have ended on 21st, December 2012. This has soon been concluded as an end of the world, or atleast a beginning of a new era. While few researchers on Mayan Civilization has trashed this, many a people believe it, nonetheless. Here is one of the numerous websites explaining this, that dotted across the internet.

5) Last, but not the least, is the amount of Moral policing happening in India. From the “Mangalore pub fiasco’ to banning Valentines day. Well, I will not write much on this, for, everyone of us have already condemned.

The Hudson river plane-landing in New York City, the ‘giant snake’ in the Borneo river, the unending quest for Aliens and UFOs and the lost city of Atlantis in Google Ocean are among the few others that made prominent news. The Hudson river plane landing, though, deserves a kudos to the Pilot!

Well, I haven’t talked about recession and terrorism. That’s a big win for me! And if I diverted your minds from these two, atleast for a few minutes, I consider my purpose solved. And by the way, this is my first post in YU πŸ™‚
