WITH ALL OF THIS BULLSHIT GOING ON, ALL ACROSS THE GLOBE, YOU WOULD THINK THAT IT WOULD BE ALMOST TOP PRIORITY FOR THE G8 LEADERS THAT JUST MEET IN JAPAN EARLIER THIS WEEK. OF COURSE THERE WAS NOTHING BUT BITTER SILENCE FROM THE G8 (REALLY G8+5). THERE WILL BE NO SUBSIDIZED FOOD FOR POORER NATIONS, THERE IS NO TALKS ABOUT STOPPING THE BURNING OF FOOD VIA BIOFUEL, AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHANCE THAT THEY WILL STEP IN AND STOP THE MULTINATIONAL FIRMS FROM SPECULATING ON ESSENTIAL GOODS IN SUCH A WAY TO DRIVE THE PRICES FOREVER HIGHER, NOT TO MENTION THE 50 BILLION IN GLOBAL AID THE G8 PROMISED WHICH THEY ARE NOW WEASELING OUT ON

Ben Underwood: the boy who could “see” with his ears




Ben Underwood was a remarkable teenager, who loved to skateboard, ride his bicycle and play football and basketball. For the most part, the Californian 14-year-old was just like other kids his age. What made Underwood remarkable was his ability to master these activities despite the fact that he was blind. Underwood had both eyes removed after being diagnosed with retinal cancer at age two. To most people's amazement upon meeting him, he seemed completely unfazed by his lack of sight, defying common stereotypes about blindness as a disability. So how did he do it? The answer is echolocation: the sonar navigation technique used by bats, dolphins, several other mammals and some birds. As Underwood moved about, he habitually made clicking noises with his tongue; these sounds bounced off surfaces and, with each return, added to Underwood's perception of his surroundings.

He was so good at it that he could tell the difference between a fire hydrantand a rubbish bin, distinguish between parked cars and trucks, and — if you took him to a house he had never been to before — he would tell you he could 'see' a staircase in that corner and a kitchen in the other. He could even distinguish between different materials.

An unflinching faith in God guided Ben and his mother during his last few months as cancer spread to Ben's brain and spine. He eventually died on January 2009 at the age of 16.

MOST INSPIRING PEOPLES


Nick Vujicic: a man with no limbs who teaches people how to get up..


Nick Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Australia with the rare Tetra-amelia disorder: limbless, missing both arms at shoulder level, and having one small foot with two toes protruding from his left thigh. Despite the absence of limbs, he is doing surf and swimming, and playing golf and soccer. Nick graduated from college at the age of 21 with a double major in Accounting and Financial Planning. He began his travels as a motivational speaker, focusing on the topics that today's teenagers face.














Jessica Cox: became the first pilot with no arms, proving you don't need 'wings' to fly




Jessica Cox suffered a rare birth defect and was born without any arms. None of the prenatal tests her mother took showed there was anything wrong with her. And yet she was born with this rare congenital disease, but also with a great spirit. The psychology graduate can write, type, drive a car, brush her hair and talk on her phone simply using her feet. Ms Cox, from Tuscon, Arizona, USA, is also a former dancer and double black belt in Tai Kwon-Do. She has a no-restrictions driving license, she flies planes and she can type 25 words a minute.

The plane she is flying is called an Ercoupe and it is one of the few airplanes to be made and certified without pedals. Without rudder pedals Jessica is free to use her feet as hands. She took three years instead of the usual six months to complete her lightweight aircraft licence, had three flying instructors and practiced 89 hours of flying, becoming the first pilot with no arms.

World Poverty Facts-


Half of the world population starves.. other half diets” when I saw this on a notice board in my University, I didn’t think its an over exaggerated sentence. I think it tells the whole story in few words. But to know how wide the disparity is between the rich and poor and the effect of concentration of wealth and power in few hands we need to carefully look beyond the surface and be willing to learn the world we are living in. Here are some facts from my research about world poverty.
  • About 25,000 people die every day of hunger or hunger-related causes, according to the United Nations.
  • Around 27-28 percent of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted.
  • Nearly a billion people entered the 21st century unable to read a book or sign their names.
  • 1.4 billion people live below poverty line that means they earn less than $1.25 per day.
  • About 0.13% of the world’s population controlled 25% of the world’s assets in 2004.
  • The wealthiest 20% of the world’s population consumes 76.6% of the world’s goods while 80% of humanity gets the remainder.
  • For every $1 in aid a developing country receives, over $25 is spent on debt repayment.
  • A mere 12 percent of the world’s population uses 85 percent of its water, and these 12 percent do not live in the Third World.Source .
  • Less than one per cent of what the world spent every year on weapons was needed to put every child into school by the year 2000 and yet it didn’t happen.
  • For the price of one missile, a school full of hungry children could eat lunch every day for 5 years.
  • The assets of the world’s three richest men are more than the combined GNP of all the least developed countries on the planet. .
  • One out of every eight children under the age of twelve in the U.S. goes to bed hungry every night.
