    World’s most expensive commercial Advertisement


    [video=youtube_share;pNBPfh08sT4]http://youtu.be/pNBPfh08sT4[/video]

    This Advertisement for the new Honda Accord was shot in real time with no CGI involved in the sequence. It required 606 takes and cost $6 million to shoot and took 3 months to complete.

    The equipment was so precisely set up that the crew literally had to tip toe around the set for fear of disturbing things, which led to some unexpected problems. As the day went on, the studio would get hotter, says Steiner. It meant that the wood would expand and the cog or exhaust that spins around would move slightly faster.These tiny changes made big differences to the precision set-up of the equipment......

    .....The sequence where the tires roll up a slope looks particularly impressive but is very simple. Steiner says that there is a weight in each tire and when the tire is knocked, the weight is displaced and in an attempt to rebalance itself, the tire rolls up the slope

    ~9 Health Benefits of Honey~

    The health benefits of honey depend much more on the quality of the honey than does that of most other foods. This is because the nutrients that honey provides are dependent on the types of plants and flowers the bees used to make the honey. The nutrients of honey can be as diverse as those plants as well. Raw honey is considered by far the most healthy form honey can take becausehoney processing removes many of the phytonutrients that make it so nutritious.

    [​IMG]

    Here are 9 health benefits of honey:

    Cancer Prevention

    Honey supplies and supports antioxidants that combat free radical damage, a condition associated with many types of cancer. Research is on
    going as to the effectiveness honey may have on treating and preventing cancer. Though many researchers suggest honey be taken alongside other cancer
    treatments and tout how its diverse health benefits aid cancer prevention, sofar reports are inconclusive.

    Antioxidants

    Studies show that daily consumption of honey raises the level of protective antioxidants in the blood. It provides flavonoids, including pinocembrin, an
    antioxidant compound unique to honey. Pinocembrin is undergoing many studies regarding its ability to combat bacteria and reduce inflammation.
    Immune System Support The many vitamins, phytonutrients and antioxidants found in honey suggest that it can stimulate the immune system. Research shows that raw honey is a much more effective immune booster than that of processed honey.

    Boosts Energy

    The natural sugars and carbohydrates in honey make it an effective, natural energy booster.

    Antiseptic

    Applied topically, honey is a proven antiseptic that can help heal wounds and prevent infection.

    Antiviral & Antibacterial

    The enzymes and antioxidants in honey that make it such an effective antiseptic, also give it antiviral and antibacterial properties as well. Taken internally, honey can help fight off viral infections and help treat the symptoms of cold, flu, bronchitis and more.

    Antifungal

    Topically, honey has been shown to fight fungal agents like ringworm and other skin conditions.

    Skin Health

    Aside from being useful in treating skin conditions like dermatitis, honey has been used to treat acne as well.

    Healthiest Sweetener

    In studies with patients suffering from high cholesterol and type-2 diabetes, honey proved to be a less risky and even slightly healthy option compared to
    refined cane sugar and artificial sweetener. Honey can actually help reduce cholesterol levels slightly and raises glucose levels only slightly compared to
    that of cane sugar and artificial sugar.

    Something About Lions
    .
    The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera,
    and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight,it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger.
    Lions livefor 10 14 years in the wild,
    while in captivity they can live longer than 20 years. They are the only cats that live in groups ,
    which arecalled prides . Prides are family units that may include up to threemales,
    a dozen or so females, and their young. All of a prides lionesses are related,
    and female cubs typically stay with the group as they age.
    Young males eventually leave and establish their own prides by taking over a group headed by another male.

    [​IMG]

    Lions are the only members of thecat family to display obvious sexual dimorphism--that is,
    malesand females look distinctly different. Highly distinctive,
    the male lion is easily recognized by its mane , and its face is one of the most widely recognized animal symbols in human culture.
    Males defend the prides territory,which may include some 100 square miles (259 square kilometers) of grasslands,
    scrub, or open woodlands. These intimidating animals mark the area with urine, roar menacingly to warn intruders,
    and chase off animals that encroach on their turf.

    [​IMG]

    Female lions are the prides primary hunters. They often worktogether to prey upon antelopes, zebras, wildebeest,
    and other large animals of the open grasslands. Many of these animals are faster than lions, so teamworkpays off.
    After the hunt, the groupeffort often degenerates to squabbling over the sharing of the kill, with cubs at the bottom of the pecking order.
    Young lions do not help to hunt until they are about a year old. Lions will hunt alone if the opportunity presents itself, and they also steal kills fromhyenas or wild dogs.

    [​IMG]

    Lions spend much of their time resting and are inactive for about 20 hours per day .
    Although lions can be active at any time, their activity generally peaks after duskwith a period of socializing, grooming, and defecating.
    Intermittent bursts of activity follow through the night hours until dawn, when hunting most often takes place. They spend an average of two hours a day walking and 50 minutes eating .

    [​IMG]


    Lions have been celebrated throughout history for their courage and strength. They once roamed most of Africa and parts of Asia and Europe.

    Today they are found only in parts of sub-Saharan Africa, except for one very small population of Asian lions that survives in Indias Gir Forest.

    "10000 times stronger killer of CANCER
    than Chemo"


    [​IMG]

    The Sour Sop or the fruit from the
    graviola tree is a miraculous natural
    cancer cell killer 10,000 times stronger
    than Chemo.
    Why are we not aware of this? Its
    because some big corporation want to
    make back their money spent on years of
    research by trying to make a synthetic
    version of it for sale.
    So, since you know it now you can help a
    friend in need by letting him know or just
    drink some sour sop juice yourself as
    prevention from time to time. The taste
    is not bad after all. It’s completely
    natural and definitely has no side effects.
    If you have the space, plant one in your
    garden.
    The other parts of the tree are also
    useful.
    The next time you have a fruit juice, ask
    for a sour sop.
    How many people died in vain while this
    billion-dollar drug maker concealed the
    secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?
    This tree is low and is called graviola ! in
    Brazi l, guanabana in Spanish and has the
    uninspiring name “soursop” in English.
    The fruit is very large and the subacid
    sweet white pulp is eaten out of hand or,
    more commonly, used to make fruit
    drinks, sherbets and such.
    The principal interest in this plant is
    because of its strong anti-cancer effects.
    Although it is effective for a number of
    medical conditions, it is its anti tumor
    effect that is of most interest. This plant
    is a proven cancer remedy for cancers of
    all types.
    Besides being a cancer remedy, graviola
    is a broad spectrum antimicrobial agent
    for both bacterial and fungal infections,
    is effective against internal parasites and
    worms, lowers high blood pressure and
    is used for depression, stress and
    nervous disorders.
    If there ever was a single example that
    makes it dramatically clear why the
    existence of Health Sciences Institute is
    so vital to Americans like you, it’s the
    incredible story behind the Graviola
    tree..
    The truth is stunningly simple: Deep
    within the Amazon Rainforest grows a
    tree that could literally revolutionize
    what you, your doctor, and the rest of
    the world thinks about cancer treatment
    and chances of survival. The future has
    never looked more promising.
    Research shows that with extracts from
    this miraculous tree it now may be
    possible to:
    * Attack cancer safely and effectively
    with an all-natural therapy that does not
    cause extreme nausea, weight loss and
    hair loss
    * Protect your immune system and avoid
    deadly infections
    * Feel stronger and healthier throughout
    the course of the treatment
    * Boost your energy and improve your
    outlook on life
    The source of this information is just as
    stunning: It comes from one of America
    ‘s largest drug manufacturers, th! e fruit
    of over 20 laboratory tests conducted
    since the 1970′s! What those tests
    revealed was nothing short of mind
    numbing… Extracts from the tree were
    shown to:
    * Effectively target and kill malignant
    cells in 12 types of cancer, including
    colon, breast, prostate, lung and
    pancreatic cancer..
    * The tree compounds proved to be up
    to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the
    growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a
    commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
    * What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the
    compound extracted from the Graviola
    tree selectivelyhunts
    down and kills only cancer cells.. It does
    not harm healthy cells!
    The amazing anti-cancer properties of
    the Graviola tree have been extensively
    researched–so why haven’t you heard
    anything about it? If Graviola extract is
    One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar
    drug makers began a search for a cancer
    cure and their research centered on
    Graviola, a legendary healing tree from
    the Amazon Rainforest.
    Various parts of the Graviola tree–
    including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and
    fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries
    by medicine men and native Indi! ans in S
    outh America to treat heart disease,
    asthma, liver problems and arthritis.
    Going on very little documented scientific
    evidence, the company poured money
    and resources into testing the tree’s anti-
    cancerous properties–and were shocked
    by the results. Graviola proved itself to
    be a cancer-killing dynamo.
    But that’s where the Graviola story
    nearly ended.
    The company had one huge problem with
    the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural,
    and so, under federal law, not
    patentable. There’s no way to make
    serious profits from it.
    It turns out the drug company invested
    nearly seven years trying to synthesize
    two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful
    anti-cancer ingredients. If they could
    isolate and produce man-made clones of
    what makes the Graviola so potent,
    they’d be able to patent it and make
    their money back. Alas, they hit a brick
    wall. The original simply could not be
    replicated. There was no way the
    company could protect its profits–or
    even make back the millions it poured
    into research.
    As the dream of huge profits evaporated,
    their testing on Graviola came to a
    screeching halt. Even worse, the company
    shelved the entire project and chose not
    to publish the findings of its research!
    Luckily, however, there was one scientist
    from the Graviola research team whose
    conscience wouldn’t let him see such
    atrocity committed. Risking his career, he
    contacted a company that’s dedicated to
    harvesting medical plants from the
    Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.
    Miracle unleashed
    When researchers at the Health Sciences
    Institute were alerted to the news of
    Graviola,! they be gan tracking the
    research done on the cancer-killing tree.
    Evidence of the astounding effectiveness
    of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–
    came in fast and furious….
    ….The National Cancer Institute
    performed the first scientific research in
    1976. The results showed that Graviola’s
    “leaves and stems were found effective
    in attacking and destroying malignant
    cells.” Inexplicably, the results were
    published in an internal report and never
    released to the public…
    ….Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be
    an immensely potent cancer killer in 20
    independent laboratory tests, yet no
    double-blind clinical trials–the typical
    benchmark mainstream doctors and
    journals use to judge a treatment’s
    value–were ever initiated….
    ….A study published in the Journal of
    Natural Products, following a recent
    study conducted at Catholic University of
    South Korea stated that one chemical in
    Graviola was found to selectively kill
    colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the
    potency of (the commonly used
    chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…”
    ….The most significant part of the
    Catholic University of South Korea report
    is that Graviola was shown to selectively
    target the cancer cells, leaving healthy
    cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy,
    which indiscriminately targets all actively
    reproducing cells (such as stomach and
    hair cells), causing the often devastating
    side effects of nausea and hair loss in
    cancer patients.
    …A study at Purdue University recently
    found that leaves from the Graviola tree
    killed cancer cells among six human cell
    lines and were especially effective
    against prostate, pancreatic and lung
    cancers…. Seven years of silence
    broken–it’s finally here!

    HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE.

    Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
    However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.


    [​IMG]


    # A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

    # A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

    # Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
    # The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

    Kim Ung-Yong:Attended University at age 4, Ph.D at age 15;world's highest IQ


    [​IMG]

    This Korean super-genius was born in
    1962 and might just be the smartest
    guy alive today (he's recognized by the
    Guinness Book of World Records as
    having the highest IQ
    of anyone on the planet). By the age
    of four he was already able to read in
    Japanese, Korean, German, and
    English. At his fifth birthday, he solved
    complicated differential and integral
    calculus problems. Later, on Japanese
    television, he demonstrated his
    proficiency in Chinese, Spanish,
    Vietnamese, Tagalog, German, English,
    Japanese, and Korean. Kim was listed
    in the Guinness Book of World
    Records under "Highest IQ"; the book
    estimated the boy's score at over 210.

    How to Get India Post Proof of Address Card

    we know that the India Post has been providing service where we can obtain proof of address card from them and the same act
    as like a photo ID card as well, where it will have our photo with the proper address in
    it, which will be mostly accepted by various government agencies for the purpose of address proof and some even accept it as a
    valid ID proof. But it will not be accepted at some services as a valid address or ID proof.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Process involved in getting Postal ID Card

    To get the valid Postal Address Proof card issued by the Post Offices in India, you will
    need to get an application for the same either from your neighborhood post office
    by paying Rs. 10 as application fee or you can alternatively download the application here. You will need to fill up the postal address proof card properly along with your
    latest passport size photo and submit the same to your local post office. You will need to pay Rs. 240 as the service for getting the
    ID card or address card from post office.

    Getting the Card

    The usual time that they say to get the valid India post address proof id card is usually 40 days but it may take upto 2 months in
    some cases to get it. This will be done after your local post office send your application
    to the nearest head post office and from there they will send a post man for verification for your residing in your present
    address. After all the process is over, you will need to visit your local postoffice again and with your application number ask for
    the same, and I guess you will need to atleast visit two to three times to get it and if
    in luck you may get your valid address proof card within 40 to 60 days.

    Address Proof Card via Tatkal


    You can also get this postal address card within 5 to 10 days if you can apply for the same via the Tatkal option where you will
    need to pay Rs. 600 for the same instead of the usual price of Rs. 250 for the regular India Post Address Card. This tatkal way of
    getting the address ID card is done only at select head post offices in select towns and cities only, contact your post master for the details about the same.

    Features

    *Issued only to the Indian citizens

    *Valid only for the authentication of address proof

    *Valid for 3 years from the date of issue and can be renewed

    *Available only for those of age 18 and above

    Verdict

    Such cards are indeed a boon for those who regularly change their residence address
    and find it hard to get things moving in terms of getting their address updated at
    various government and non-government organizations like banks, mutual funds,
    insurance, ration card, passport, driving license, voter ID Card, gas service, etc., to
    update their new address where they usually ask for a valid proof whenever there is a
    change of address. But the only thing that is bogging down this service is that its time
    duration that is usually taken to get the ID Address Card at our hand, mostly takes almost 2 months to get it!! If India Post
    improves that glitch, this service offered by them is indeed a great boon for many. The other major glitch is that this card is mostly
    not accepted at major establishments but
    government of India should make sure this card is accepted as a major proof of ID and
    proof of address at all places.

    The Georgia Guidestones

    The Georgia Guidestones, sometimes referred to as the "American Stonehenge," is a granite monument erected in Elbert County, Ga., in 1979. The stones are engraved in eight languages, including English, Spanish, Swahili, Hindi, Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Russian, each relaying 10 "new" commandments for "an Age of Reason." The stones also line up with certain astronomical features.

    Though the monument contains no encrypted messages, its purpose and origin remain shrouded in mystery. They were commissioned by a man who has yet to be properly identified, who went by the pseudonym of R.C. Christian.

    Of the 10 commandments, the first one is perhaps the most controversial: "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature." Many have taken it to be a license to cull the human population down to the specified number, and critics of the stones have called for them to be destroyed. Some conspiracy theorists even believe they may have been designed by a "Luciferian secret society" calling for a new world order.
