Anti-HIV vaccine results look promising

For the first time a vaccine to prevent HIV infection was released and showed promising test results. Statistically the new vaccine may diminish the risk of contracting HIV by 31 % which represents a significant improvement. The study was done by the US military HIV research program and it was conducted in Thailand on more than 16000 participants aged between 18 and 30 all being HIV negative at the beginning of the tests. After three years monitoring, 51 vaccinated people contracted HIV compared to 74 cases in the group who did not receive vaccine. 23 less cases show a step forward but the results exhibit many flaws due to fact that the tests depend on many random conditions even if the subjects were classified as at "medium" risk of getting HIV. The new vaccine is the outcome of a combination of two vaccines which have failed to work previously on their own. The vaccine against HIV is produced by Global Solutions for Infectious Deseases and Sanofi Pasteur and the research was founded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Deseases and the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command.

Justin Lee and Oliver Yeh - Space camera balloon Project

Ingenious idea of two MIT students Oliver Yeh and Justin Lee who took pictures of the Earth curvature by using a digital camera lifted up by a helium-filled weather balloon and tracked down by a GPS mobile phone attached to the flying device.
Their idea developed as follows: a $150 Canon camera (purchased on e-bay) should be launched into the stratosphere by a $20 latex weather balloon filled with helium (~$30). Regarding the fact that the temperatures go down to -50 degrees, the batteries and electronics fail working but to overcome this problem the students closed the camera inside a styrofoam cooler and some handwarmers were placed tightly around the equipment to maintain it functioning. Another tricky job was to find a way to control the position of the balloon during its trip. Usually the flight tracking devices rely on expensive and heavy GPS modems but the MIT guy figured out an much more inexpensive and simple solution by securing the balloon with a $50 Motorola Boost GPS-equipped mobile phone whose task was to report the GPS coordinates via text message. The ballon was deployed on 2th of September 2009 in Sturbrigde, Massachusetts and it was eye-viewed for 1 hour. Most probably about four hours later the balloon poped due to very low pressure and the parachuted equipment landed back on Earth in Worcester where it send its GPS position.
The experimental device travelled up to 17 miles.

Europa League: Ajax Amsterdam-FC Timisoara 0-0 video highlights

17 Sep 2009. Ajax Amsterdam - FC Timisoara 0-0 report and commentary of the game as witnessed at Amsterdam ArenA Stadium.
Ajax Amsterdam - FC Timisoara turned out to be a poor game with two teams uncapable to create clear occasions or to show a spectacular football. The Romanian team as usual was happy with a nil result whereas the Dutch side remained frustrated despite the territorial advantage and ball posession. Timisoara played defensive aiming a draw game but despite this they had a lot of counterattack opportunities which were missed due to lack of support from "inexistent" midfield line, therefore the strikers Bucur and Parks were the only ones struggling to put in danger Stekelensburg's goal but of course without success. Timisoara's best players were the goalkeeper Costel Pantelimon (who had a pretty quiet evening besides irritating the Dutch stands:) and the togolese defender Dare Nibombe who made the same perfect play we've been used to.
General conclusion: Frustrated teams? Nope!!! Frustrated were me, myself, my friends and a few thounsand fans. Furthermore they did not even serve a beer,,,everything was just "alcoholvrij". Hope PSV - CFR Cluj will be better.

Barack Obama calls Kanye West a "jacksass" audio recording CNBC

In an interview with CNBC the United States President Barack Obama expressed his opinion about the hip-hop singer Kany West calling him a "jackass" for his outburst at MTV music awards when West grabbed the microphone from the country singer Taylor Swift during her video award speach to tell that Beyonce has the best video made. Part of the off-the-record remark was posted on Twitter by Terry Moran - an ABC employee - compelling the news TV network to appologize later to the White House and CNBC for the unprofessional gesture.
A portion from Barack Obama's declaration: "I thought that was really inappropriate. You know it was like she's getting an award. Why are you butting in? The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She's getting her award. What he's doing up there? He's a jackass." - and the President Obama was perfectly right, he said it well. West deserved that and indeed...what was he doing up there???
Of course also Kanye West appologized on his blog for his act which was rude. He behaved childish and it tourned out that the blame against him became also "presidential".

UEFA Champions League: FC Z├╝rich - Real Madrid 2-5 video-highlights and goals

FC Zurich lost 2-5 against the galactics from Real Madrid but the score does not really reflect the reality. Real started well and claimed a 3-0 at half-time on goals by C. Ronaldo, Raul and G. Higuain. Everything looked formal and supposed to work by the book but a surprise outlines in the 64 minute when the Swiss team reduces the difference on goal scored by X. Margairaz from penalty spot (1-3). Just one minute later, 65, Zurich sends the ball once again in Casillas net by S. Aegerter (2-3). At this point Real started to fear and they figured out that they are not invincible at all. The Spaniards honour is saved lately in minute 89' when the same C. Ronaldo scores from a free kick and an unacceptable mistake of the Swiss goalkeeper (2-4) and minute 94' when J.M. Guti sets the final result 2-5.

Guideline for evaluation of a real estate or property

FHA which means Federal Housing Administrations was created to fulfill several goals such as securing the mortgage market, developing and improving the housing conditions, providing appropriate house financing by insurance system. When owning a home, it is of important interest to know its real value. If the property is over evaluated there comes up the risk to have it too long time posted on the market; if it is under priced than it might sell quickly but with no comfort knowing that you could have less money than you could have gotten. FHA Appraisal is the best option in such situations because professionals will tell you how much your home is worth. It is good to keep in mind that the FHA estimation of the real estate has also some requirements therefore it is recommended to check them to know which are compulsory and which might be excepted. There will be a detailed inspection of the property to set its real price and the appraisers (approved by the FHA Appraisals agency) should be provided with all needed information regarding finances, sale concessions, down payments, closing costs, etc. In order to get good quotations you have to focus carefully on the physical aspect of the property, of particular interest being the way it was preserved repaired, fixed. Try to remove all possible defects and deficiencies because all the immovable components from the roof to the basement will be evaluated and registered in an official report. If you want to hire an FHA Appraiser then you only have to search for the suitable appraisal companies. This can be done online by using their names, locations, licence types or other particular details.

Us open 2009 did not start as the most spectacular one but turned out to be entertaining and ended up in no less than…5 sets. Federer began the first set in force and claim it by 6-3. The second set started following the same boring pattern with Federer winning game after game and potro barely keeping the pace. At 4-1 for Federer something happened and the Swiss showed signs of exhaust which in the end made him concede the second set at tie break 6-7. The third set became more balanced but Federer managed to win one more game and claimed the set 6-4. The set 4 is pushed again to tie break and del potro wins it after plenty of unexpected mistakes made by Federer. After 3 hours and a half the US Open final entered the 5th and its last set. Federer gets delayed by losing his first game and in the end concedes the set 2-6 and also the US Open title in the favor of Del Potro. Quite weird what happened to Federer in the second set, probably the tiring state after the long match against Djokovic while Del Potro progressed easy to the final after a very short semifinal win over Nadal. The Argentinian Del Potro becomes the second South American in the history to win of US Open.

Unusual funny way to threaten and scare the thieves

It just happened somewhere in Romania. A guy whose bike was stolen, posted a threatening message (assigned to the thief) in order to retrieve his good. He gives the thief two options: either to bring back the stolen bike or he will be destroyed by religious prayers.
There might be a problem if the thief is a muslim,,,probably the bike looser should call Allah.

Romania space program - the first space rocket schedule

Romania prepares to conquer the Earth outer space by launching its first space rocket (Helen) in early October 2009. The program was run by 40 romanian physicists who built-up a three-stage rocket which will be lifted off by a solar balloon - a hot air balloon that gets buoyancy by using the sun radiation. The balloon (solar airship) will take up the equipment to a height of about 14 km and subsequently the rocket activates its own propulsion system to continue the space trip. The launch will take place from the Back Sea with the help of the Romanian military navy and ROMATSA. The ambitious project could bring Romania international reconnaissance but also a 30 million dollars Google Lunar X prize contest. Google Lunar X prize competition presumes the launch of a rocket to the moon able to land a mobile spacecraft on lunar surface, move it accros 500 meters and broadcast back to the Earth high-definition TV images of the moon environment.
The Black Sea lift-off depends on the meteo conditions therefore the exact date of the launch is still unknown and the balloon used for the opperation is the world's biggest solar ballon that was made by ARCA (Romanian Aeronautics and Cosmonautics Association)

Weird happening at german wedding

Sometimes the impossible becomes possible. A german singer swallows its microphone while performing at a wedding. It seems that someone by mistake pushed the microphone rack directly toward the mouth of the artist. The end is unknown but the solution was certainly a back pulling of the wire.

What to know about unsecured loan and how to get Money

Usually most of the loaning agreements are classified as secure loans which are based on the borrower’s warranty to secure the payback of the loan to the lender. This is done to protect the lender against the borrower’s failure or risk. The pledge might be a property, car or any other valuable good that will be owned by the lender in the case of a terms break. However, sometimes it is possible to get a credit in a different way by employing the unsecure loans procedure.
Unsecured loans (or personal loans) rely only on the borrower's rating. In this case the lender hires a credit reference agency which makes a check on the borrower’s name, address and other details resulting in the calculation of the credit rating showing how risky is for the lender to grant the loan. The personal loans provide convenience to the borrower instead carry higher risk for the lender, therefore it is obvious that an unsecured loan is in general more difficult to obtain than a secured loan, which takes into consideration also the borrower's income. Still when an unsecured loan is conceded, it does not necessarily mean that is all the time based on a credit score, it could orso be granted merely on the client reliability but this happens when the talking about personal affairs and not a business transaction involving a bank, company, etc. Because the personal loan is that it is not backed by any physical pledge, the lending corporations will give you the money trusting your good debtor name correlated with your previous record related to debts payments. It is good to keep in mind that there are several types of loans such as personal unsecured loan – where the customer is directely responsible for the back payment of the loan, then the business unsecured loan, where the business takes care of the repayment - and in the end the unsecured business loan but with personal waranty on the loan. Practically there is possible to get a credit from the personal loans company but the main condition is to provide a good repayment record.

UFO filmed in China during the 2009 total solar eclipse

The UFO's and aliend became a trendy topic in the last period, this time the Chinese being very confident in what they've seen during the total solar eclipse that occured on 22 July 2009. The scientists from Purple Mountain Observatory, Nanjing, China, declared that they managed to catch an UFO on camera. They presented as a proof, a 40 minutes video footage showing an unusual flying object which was levitating in one fixed point in the sky.

The photos came up a few days after some other people observed another UFO in Deqing, China, the object having a spherical shape and changeable colouring.


Advices and tips on seasonal fashion and trends

When it comes to the fashion there should be taken into consideration a series of factor like location, season, personal hairstyle, make-up, etc. Many times people's decisions are based on price vs. quality principle but in general the quality is the main priority.
Here I will depict a few options on the fashion trend it can be chosen from.
Costumes: It is compulsory to choose those with a special design. The sack coat is that part that makes the difference and confer brightness. A complet costume seems to be too sober and boring like the office garment, instead the combination of the coat with jeans results in a highlight of the silhouette. A nice shirt could make you feel comfortable and the colouring is another aspect to pay good attention for.
The vests and/or the shirts: The joint of both is well recommended especially when wearing a shirt with large sleeves and a coat with classical cuts. There comes out an interesting outfit when matching coloured shirts with wide pants of grey stuff.
The shoes: This is a vast and delicate domain. In general for women it is preferable to opt for heel shoes that are grey or black coloured. It is well known the saying that the first impression over a person is made by looking at the shoes.
A lot of fashion information can be easily found by following the interacting mass media like TV, internet, newspapers but try to unify the expert advices with your own tastes.

Opportunities and ideas for profitable niche market

Everyone wants to be associated and connected to the nouveau riche expression but only a few succeed and most of the time the struggle to rise from poor to rich remains just a dream. In order to make the dreams come true and get to a financial growth there is necessary to find innovative business ideas which are mostly based on the people connection. Why? Because a business involves people, potential customers and many more means better in such situations. The most difficult part is to find the suitable idea or niche among the thousands or millions possible. This supposes to dig deep into reading and analyzing possible opportunities that fit your qualifications. Once an idea seems to be lucrative there is compulsory to focus on the business management, namely to check carefully what are the wants, the needs and the offers. In scientific terms the profit means that the output related to the input is bigger than one.
Here I will come up with an idea, which for some could be a possible nouveau riche opportunity. The business runs as slow as the snails move? Then start an investment that implies the snails growing. There are several advantages when raising snails. It is necessary a minimum initial budget, the entrepreneurs benefit of non-reimbursable funds amounting to 50 percent from initial investment, secure distribution market because plenty of companies take over the entire production for export, production space – for raising snails there is no need for high quality soils regarding the fertility or location, the snails raise themselves therefore a continuous presence it is not compulsory, and only 17% of the world snail market is covered placing this business on a high ranking profitable position. From some experience, the initial investment could amount to 5000$, the first 12 months the profit not being significant due to the time needed for snails multiplication but subsequently the financial results range between 20-25000$ a year without too much involvement.
Of course there are many possibilities of getting to nouveau riche, among the top ideas being the real estate investments but the business market depends on the region, countries interconnection, bureaucracy and some other regional factors. Hence you want to make money but you don’t wish to get burned and left without anything after first investment? Then check, pay careful attention and choose the less risking niche, start with small affordable amounts of money and have the confidence to go on your own without any questions left to ask.

Pussycat Dolls break up

The American pop girl band Pussycat Dolls split due to exagerated popularity of the group leader Nicole Scherzinger (known also as Lewis Hamilton's girlfriend). In a way it is normal because the world was spinning too much around only one of the girls. The group members agreed to separate fow a while and to evaluate their options. Pussycat Dolls held their latest concert early August 2009 in Beirut, Lebanon.


Guideline about eyeglasses, goggles and optical items

When deciding to buy eyeglasses, goggles, etc it is recommended to have some knowledge about the optics field therefore notions like coatings, refractive index, lens, aberrations, all are terms that describe the quality and the defects of an optical product. In general the manufacturing of the optics is not cheap because of the high finesse and the advanced quality control techniques involved. It is clear that the pricing is an important factor to keep in your mind. Some vendors advertise cheap UV eyeglasses but many times the customers figure out that they are made from plastic which in fact does not block the UV radiation, therefore in this example is worth to know that the glass is actually that material that lets the visible light pass through and obstructs the UV spectrum. How You Can Start Spending Smart depends on many factors such as income, personal taste, needs, etc but some tips can be easily found on the internet.Personally I like mostly the glasses with thin full-rim frame because they confer a kind of business type and a serious attitude for anyone. Sometimes it is tempting to choose famous expensive brands but like most of the people, I prefer to purchase quality glasses at a low price for example the $ 8 Rx eyeglasses. It is a bit difficult to match this compromise because in general higher the price higher the quality but last time I spent less about 15$ on a good pair of glasses. Initially just did not expect a high quality product but I performed a little experiment in a laboratory (at the working place) by putting the eyeglasses across the pathway of a laser radiation centered at a wavelength of 266 nm (UV light) and checking the materials they were made of. Surprisingly the item turned out to be made of glass after seeing that the UV laser light was blocked. In general I own two pair of glasses and My favorite high fashion eyeglasses look mostly like those seen in the following pictures.


Michael Jackson tribute Bucharest Romania 29 August 2009

29 aug 2009 - An impresive 51st anniversary tribute brought to Michael Jackson by the Romanians who danced at different locations across Bucharest. Michael Jackson fans performed at Romana Square (Piata Romana), Plazza Mall and North Railway Station (Gara de Nord); it is funny to see them waiting and letting the cars pass and subsequently jumping in the street for a short dance (e.g. Piata Romana). Probably the pop music addicted fellows paid much attention to the dangerous raging car traffic from downtown Bucharest.
