British Ministry of Defence published a series of images showing two Russian Tu-160 bombers flying in the UK airspace. The incident occured on March 10, 2010 and it was one of the many intercepts made by the Britain Air Forces in the last 12 months. The Russian bomber jets were escorted by two British Tornato F3 fighter jets belonging to RAF's 111 Squadron. The fighter jets were sent from the Leuchars base, Scotland to accompany the Tu-160's as they were getting closer from the Isle of Lewis. The Tordanos shadowed the Russian planes as they were moving south, then north along the Nothern Ireland coast and finally leaving the UK space. Mark Gorringe, the commander of the 111 Squadron said that this was not an unusual incident and the british crews have successfully intercepted the Russian aircrafts on more than 20 times since the beginning of 2009. The Russian officials confirmed the presence of the planes in the area but denied the violation of the UK territory. Tupolev Tu-160 - known as Blackjack by NATO forces - is a supersonic strategic bomber with wings of variable geometry designed in the Soviet Union. The Russian jet is similar but faster than the american counterpart bomber B-1 Lancer. Tu-160 is the last soviet strategic bomber and considered the biggest fighter jet ever built.

About spam messages and how to avoid them

The spam or spamming is known as a process of sending unsolicited electronic messages, mostly with commercial character in order to advertise products and suspicious services. The spam is an annoying procedure characterized by aggressiveness, recurrence and privation of the right to choose. The spam is widely used by the people who want to get some earnings by irritating the other internet users. Because the spam is an unsolicited email it means that the recipient did not grant to permission for it to be delivered. Usually when overwhelmed with troubling unwanted messages then it is advisable to divert them to an allocated folder called trash, bulk. In case you own a private domain name you have to figure out a method of avoiding the Domain Spam.
The spam complaints proved to be useful because of several reasons and as importance I will mention only two of them here: firstly, they show how the internet user follows the best practices and secondly, the ISP and anti-spam services employ the complaints in order to improve the spam filter software and block the undesired messages. It is always recommendable to report the spam messages and there are various options to do so: 1) most of the ISPs highlight either a link or a button that permits the email recipient to report a spam message; 2) the recipient files the complaint directly to the spam email address at ISP, and 3) the recipient can make use of special complaint services. Use the following advices to avoid being caught by spam services: while browsing the internet, you should never provide your email address if a specific website does not look trustful; use eventually at first a “buffer” email address specially made for this kind of situations; do not accept the passing of your personal details to a third party; check carefully disclaimers, terms and conditions; if they are provided then read them with patience. I do not know if TechieMedia.net Complaints are motivated, but in case there is a spam source behind, then they should quit.

LHC CERN to recreate Big Bang on 30 March 2010

The scientists from European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) are gonna employ the Large Hadron Collider in an attempt to recreate the Big Bang on 30 March 2010. The accelerator which lies 100 meters underground between Swiss and France is used by physicist to study the tiniest known particles - the fundamental building ensamble of all surrounding things. Two beams of subatomic particles called hadrons (protons or lead ions) with energy of 3.5 TeV each, are scheduled to collide at 7 TeV on March 30, 2010. The beams circulate in opposide directions inside the LHC, gaining energy with every lap and expected to reach as high as 3.5 TeV each - the highest energy yet obtained in a particle accelerator. In the experiment the physicists will try to create the conditions just after the Big Bang.

Optical information on eyeglasses

Before thinking to purchase any type of eyeglasses it is good to have some knowledge about the optical field therefore notions like astigmatism, anti-reflecting coatings, refractive index, lens aberrations, all these are terms that characterize the quality and the defects of an optical item. Usually the production of the optics is pretty expensive due to the high finesse and the advanced quality control methods involved. Hence, it is obvious that the pricing is an important factor to keep in your mind. Some merchants advertise cheap UV eyeglasses but in most cases the customers discover that they are made of plastic which in fact does not stop the UV radiation, therefore this example let you know that the glass is actually the material that lets the visible spectrum pass through and obstructs the UV radiation. It is recommendable to read the comments on the internet and here one of the most relevant is Eric’s Review of Zenni Optical. One of the nicest glasses are those 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 opt for the Lowest Price Progressive Glasses. It is a bit difficult to fit this compromise because normally higher the price higher the quality but once I spent about 15$ on a good quality glasses. Initially just did not expect a high quality product but I ran a little experiment in a laboratory (at the working place) by placing the eyeglasses across the pathway of a laser radiation centred at a wavelength of 266 nm (UV light) and verifying 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. The #1 online Rx glasses store comes up with the most competitive and attractive prices especially now before the sunny season is about to start. In general I own two pair of glasses and I like the design as that in the figure:

Video: Fox News' Bret Baier interrupts Barack Obama on health care talk

Wednesday at the White House president Barack Obama was interviewed by Fox News host Bret Baier on health care reform. The american president was repeatedly interrupted by an irritating Bret Baier who later appologized for his interjections, declaring that he wanted to "get more bang for buck."
Part of Barack Obama statement on health care strategy and idea:
BARACK OBAMA: "I'm confident it will pass. And the reason I'm confident that it's going to pass is because it's the right thing to do. Look, on a whole host of these measures, whether it's health care, whether it was fixing the financial system, whether it's making sure that we passed the Recovery Act, I knew these things might not be popular, but I was absolutely positive that they were the right thing to do and that, over time, we would be vindicated in having made those tough decisions.
I think health care is exactly the same thing. We -- I've got a whole bunch of portraits of presidents around here, starting with Teddy Roosevelt, who tried to do this and didn't get it done. The reason that it needs to be done is not its affect on the presidency. It has to do with how it's going to affect ordinary people who right now are desperately in need of help."

Jesse James vs Michelle "Bombshell" McGee

Earlier this week Sandra Bullock left her home aparently due to an alledged sexual affair between her husband Jesse James and Michelle McGee. McGee is a tattoo model from San Diego who declared that she has been involved in an affair with Jesse James for several months. Of course James denied and considered all the declarations as lies but still he appologised to his family for a poor judgement. It looks like Sandra did not believe entirely his denial of the affair and decided to leave for a while if not forever. Michelle McGee seems to be a person not having a very nice background regarding the fact that she is connected to adult videos and profiles. The only thing which is clear stays on the fact the she reflects the image of a person who likes partying and entertaining. The education of Michelle McGee, 24, is based on a biology bachelor's degree and a two-year medical school. Apparently the contact with the medical staff makes her hot according to one of her statements: "Now, I especially love to have affairs with doctors. Their medical talk makes me hot. I love to be challenged, and I love to put know-it-all doctors in their place."

The commercial lighting manufacturers are able to provide a wide variety of products categorized by design, power, spectrum or colour. It is good to make a comparison between the bulb lamps and the led-based lamps. The led lamps are known for long life time and high efficiency therefore is very profitable to choose them despite the fact that they are somehow a little bit more expensive than the fluorescence or incandescence lamps. Assembly such as ampoule a led turned out to be a very efficient and reliable light product with a large angle of illumination and containing a multi-led array which is comparable in intensity with a 50 watts power incandescence lamp. To notice here another advantage that relies on its very small dimensions. 137. Now it is also possible to use the simulateur d’aube which performs simulation of the sun rising or fall of the night.
