Being familiar with the Hindu mythology, I found Mayan mythology very much similar to it. I love reading about our ancestors irrespective of countries and civilization.
The Mayan civilization is fascinating to me. I suddenly remembered many things in Mayan mythology when I read a brief news story in Times of India today. It was about the contents of a tomb of a Mayan king who lived and died before the birth of Jesus Christ.
Hunab Ku is said to be the God creator of Maya. People of Mayan civilization believed that Hunab Ku rebuilt the world after three deluges which poured from the mouth of a sky serpent.

We find shelters to stay away from the snow but for the polar bears, the snow offers perfect shelter.

You like this fast food at your nearest McDonald's outlet and so do I? It is perfectly alright to indulge in these junks once in way. To be more specific about 'once in a way', I would say once in a life time.
Oh, Ok, I given in; once in a year.
If your frequencies to the McDonald's are more than that, then, at least know this calorie fact. You will consume anything between 600 to 800 calories depending on the meat inside the burger you order.
Tell me frankly, do you burn at least half of that in the next 3 hours after you eat and wash down with COKE?
Oh, those French Fries! I did not include its calories above!

The frequency of inventions of new medicines that treat fatal diseases and common maladies has diminished in the past decade. Sadly, incidents of medicines causing harmful side effects have increased many folds. This keeps the personal injury lawyers on their toes as is evident through the press release of Texas based O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, personal injury attorneys specializing in providing legal assistance to victims of medicines and devices.
The Topamax lawsuit has clearly exposed the medical field’s inadequacies in warnings and usage of drugs. Topamax is prescribed for convulsions in epileptic patients but look at who are affected! The new born children are at the receiving end of side effects of Topamax.
Some pregnant women who took Topamax to treat migraine (the added usage of Topamax) gave birth to babies (not all of course) with peculiar birth defects.
Please contact O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 to get all the facts of Topamax lawsuit.

A tomato fight? Must be related to one of the many bizarre festivals of Spain. Of course, the festivals look bizarre only to those that are not from Spain.
Tomatina Tomato Fight is held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Buñol in the Valencia region of Spain. Tens of thousands of participants come from all over the world to fight in a brutal battle where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets.
What an idea of a fight? Don't you think it is a colossus waste of resources when you think of hungry nations? And to know that this festival is held for week is disturbing really.
The week-long festival features music, parades, dancing, and fireworks.
In preparation for the dirty mess that will ensue, shopkeepers use huge plastic covers on their storefronts in order to protect them from the carnage.
*The party or festival starts at 10 a.m.
*Many trucks haul the bounty of tomatoes into the center of the town, Plaza del Pueblo.
*The festival begins when one person climb to the top of a two-story high, greased-up wooden pole and reach the coveted ham at the top.
*The signal for the beginning of the fight is firing of water cannons, and the chaos begins.
*Participants wear protective safety goggles and gloves.
*They must squish the tomatoes before throwing for safety precautions.

Astrobiologist? What next?
Well, we all know bacteria but never seen one. After all, they are not visible to naked human eyes. If that is the case, how about fossils of bacteria? I am not joking.
This scientist Hoover has studied fossils of bacteria and that fossils embedded in dead meteors found on all the strange and isolated places on Earth.
These bacteria fossils revealed to him that life apart from Earth exist. He comcluded based on the fact that while some fossils of bacteria are similar to the bacteria found on earth, other fossils of bacteria offered no clue to him.

In the UFO that appeared in the radar of Russian air traffic controller's office, an alien was flying and the voice indicated it is a female. The language of course was incomprehensible-just a sort of miao miao.
The UFO was flying over the diamond capital called Yakutsk in Russia. At least, that is what the radar position indicated. It was very clear that alien was trying to talk to humans at the air traffic control office.

Sometimes during 1946, in Sweden, mysterious rocket like missiles were spotted. No, they were not UFO in the usual sense when disc shaped objectes were reported as seen. (BTW, why such sightings were always seen by farmers?)
But these so called ghost rockets were seen not by public but by radars and military establishments. Were these caused by meteors?
This mystery is still unresolved but there is one interesting information about these ghost rockets in Sweden. The Swedish army prohibited reporting such sightings in newspapers especially to the exact location of a sighting, or any information regarding the direction or speed of the object.
This widely circulated photo of a "ghost rocket," taken July 9, 1946, in Sweden, was most likely a meteor.

This plant is very familiar to all of us-right? It is called 'Lady fern', an ornamental plant. We would have never thought its decorative purpose.
However, it is a medicinal plant. The juices of the leaves of Lady Fern will cure the stinging feeling caused when we accidentally touch nettles.
The Africans crush the leaves on their palms to heal minor cut injuries.
I believe some species of Lady Fern leaves are used to make organic tea to cure cough. I am yet to check on this news bit that I read in a local magazine long back.

Have you see the sticks that are also called 'poles' used by skiers? Well, if you use such poles while walking on any other surface apart from snow is called 'Nordic' walking.
This exercise is considered very good when compared to normal walking because you apply pressure with your arms on the poles you are carrying and this burns more calories. Other benefits include increase in overall body strength and fluidity in the joints.
What is important is the height of the poles which should be about 2/3 of the height of the user. Real Nordic Walking Poles utilize special Nordic Walking Straps - kind of like a fingerless glove, allowing power transmission through the strap and eliminating the need to uncomfortably grip the poles.
These Nordic walking poles come with removable rubber tips for better grip on hard surface and and hardened metal tips for trails, the beach, snow and ice. Most poles are made from lightweight aluminum, carbon fiber, or composite materials.

These days it is mandatory to locate relevant medico legal information even before consulting a doctor when you experience harmful side effects of any medicine you take.
There are more reports of legal action such as Accuntane Lawsuit than feedbacks of satisfactory results of medical treatment. It seems the number of physicians who treat a particular disease match the number of personal injury attorneys who are ready to provide legal help to victims of medicines, devices and various other products.
Somehow, medical journals carefully avoid mentioning cases of injuries occurring because of taking medicines that include weight loss pills, Accutane to treat bowel inflammation and acne cure tablets.
If you or someone you know has been taking Accutane and experience harmful side effects, you should contact your physician immediately. In addition, you can consult the law firm of O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers located at 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701. Phone: 512-494-9949

I wonder whether students of Regency Beauty Institute are given the freedom of creating new hairstyles just like trainee chefs are allowed to cook up new dishes with untested ingredient combination.
I seriously raised this question in a forum dedicated to appearance. There were some replies but they were not from working beauticians. One man jokingly written that he is ready to volunteer because, he has nothing to lose.
Regency Beauty Institute is the leading beauty schools in the U.S. 50 Years ago, they founded it in Minneapolis but today, they have campuses in 19 states. I learnt that graduates from Regency Beauty Institute are more willing to set up their own beauty saloon than working for hotels and cine stars.
If only Regency Beauticians come to India, they would be quickly grabbed up the rich Indian film industry.
Aren’t beauticians compared to God?

It is a natural flower alright. Some would say it is beautiful and some would not agree by calling it ugly.
It is called 'Corpse Flower' because it emanates very bad smell which would our nostrils even from a distance.
Its real name is Rafflesia.
Here is the uniqueness of Rafflesia.
The plant has no stem, leaves or roots. It is also known as a parasitic plant.

It is alright when a saree or churidhar or a men's suit cost around a million U.S.dollar but how will you react when you hear that a bra that contains a few centimeters of cloth costs $2 million?
Here is the Brazilian model Ariana Lima wearing a bra that is said to be priced at $2 million.
Though there is now I could find out why it is so expensive, I thought I saw something shining on it. Are my deceiving me?
I don't understand the desire to buy an inner garment that nobody would see at such a high price!

Some of them really amused me and I though I would share a few rare facts with you.
* Have ever you seen an Ostrich running? It is a delightful sight to watch. They are graceful runners. Do you know they can run faster than horses?
* Here is a new, rather unknown fact. Contrary to the popular belief, the lions are selective hunters and they definitely don't spend their entire time hunting down. I read that they have a limit of just 20 killings in a YEAR! Here is another interesting fact. The lioness does 90% of the hunting!
While both the above seem to be authentic, I can't say the same about this:
Cows have four stomachs!
Want to see an Ostrich dance?
