Coffee May Reduce Diabetes Risk

Coffee May Reduce Diabetes Risk After conducting an 11-year study, researchers found that women who drank 6 or more cups of decaffeinated coffee a day were 33% less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. The researchers suggest that this is because coffee is rich in antioxidants, which may protect the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. In type 2 diabetes, patients don't make enough insulin to keep sugar levels under control.

However, this doesn't mean that you should increase your coffee consumption or start drinking coffee if you don't already drink it regularly. Caffeine is a mild stimulant that has effects on the cardiovascular system such as increased heart rate, higher blood pressure or irregular heartbeat that should be considered in case you have heart disease or hypertension. If you feel that coffee has negative effects on you please talk with your doctor about it.

15 Things u didn't know about Windows XP : Tips & Tricks

Disable Recycle Bin
You can delete files immediately, without having them move to the Recycle Bin first. Go to the Start menu, select Run… and type ’ gpedit.msc’; then select User Configuration, Administrative Templates, Windows Components, Windows Explorer and find the Do not move deleted files to the Recycle Bin setting. Set it. Poking around in gpedit will reveal a great many interface and system options, but take care—some may stop your computer behaving as you wish. (Professional Edition only).

Lock Workstation
You can lock your XP workstation with two clicks of the mouse. Create a new shortcut on your desktop using a right mouse click, and enter ‘rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation’ in the location field. Give the shortcut a name you like. That’s it—just double click on it and your computer will be locked. And if that’s not easy enough, Windows key + L will do the same.

Show Hidden Installed products in Add/Remove Programs
XP hides some system software you might want to remove, such as Windows Messenger, but you can tickle it and make it disgorge everything. Using Notepad or Edit, edit the text file /windows/inf/sysoc.inf, search for the word ‘hide’ and remove it. You can then go to the Add or Remove Programs in the Control Panel, select Add/Remove Windows Components and there will be your prey, exposed and vulnerable.

System Events from DOS
For those skilled in the art of DOS batch files, XP has a number of interesting new commands. These include ‘eventcreate’ and ‘eventtriggers’ for creating and watching system events, ‘typeperf’ for monitoring performance of various subsystems, and ‘schtasks’ for handling scheduled tasks. As usual, typing the command name followed by /? will give a list of options—they’re all far too baroque to go into here.

IP v6
XP has IP version 6 support—the next generation of IP. Unfortunately this is more than your ISP has, so you can only experiment with this on your LAN. Type ‘ipv6 install’ into Run… (it’s OK, it won’t ruin your existing network setup) and then ‘ipv6 /?’ at the command line to find out more. If you don’t know what IPv6 is, don’t worry and don’t bother.

Kill Tasks from Command Line
You can at last get rid of tasks on the computer from the command line by using ‘taskkill /pid’ and the task number, or just ‘tskill’ and the process number. Find that out by typing ‘tasklist’, which will also tell you a lot about what’s going on in your system.

Zips or Folders
XP will treat Zip files like folders, which is nice if you’ve got a fast machine. On slower machines, you can make XP leave zip files well alone by typing ‘regsvr32 /u zipfldr.dll’ at the command line. If you change your mind later, you can put things back as they were by typing ‘regsvr32 zipfldr.dll’.

ClearType Technology
XP has ClearType—Micr@$@ft’s anti-aliasing font display technology—but doesn’t have it enabled by default. It’s well worth trying, especially if you were there for DOS and all those years of staring at a screen have given you the eyes of an astigmatic bat. To enable ClearType, right click on the desktop, select Properties, Appearance, Effects, select ClearType from the second drop-down menu and enable the selection. Expect best results on laptop displays. If you want to use ClearType on the Welcome login screen as well, set the registry entry HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULT/Control Panel/Desktop/FontSmoothingType to 2.

Remote Assistance
You can use Remote Assistance to help a friend who’s using network address translation (NAT) on a home network, but not automatically. Get your pal to email you a Remote Assistance invitation and edit the file. Under the RCTICKET attribute will be a NAT IP address, like Replace this with your chum’s real IP address—they can find this out by going to—and get them to make sure that they’ve got port 3389 open on their firewall and forwarded to the errant computer.

Auto Update Balloon Tips
Windows XP can be very insistent about you checking for auto updates, registering a Passport, using Windows Messenger and so on. After a while, the nagging goes away, but if you feel you might slip the bonds of sanity before that point, run Regedit, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Micr@$@ft/Windows/Current Version/Explorer/Advanced and create a DWORD value called EnableBalloonTips with a value of 0.

Auto Login
You can start up without needing to enter a user name or password. Select Run… from the start menu and type ‘control userpasswords2’, which will open the user accounts application. On the Users tab, clear the box for Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer, and click on OK. An Automatically Log On dialog box will appear; enter the user name and password for the account you want to use.

Fast Start Menu
The Start Menu can be leisurely when it decides to appear, but you can speed things along by changing the registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/MenuShowDelay from the default 400 milliseconds to something a little snappier. Like 0.

Visual Songs
Windows Media Player will display the cover art for albums as it plays the tracks—if it found the picture on the Internet when you copied the tracks from the CD. If it didn’t, or if you have lots of pre-WMP music files, you can put your own copy of the cover art in the same directory as the tracks. Just call it folder.jpg and Windows Media Player will pick it up and display it.

Windows key + Break brings up the System Properties dialogue box; Windows key + D brings up the desktop; Windows key + Tab moves through the taskbar buttons.

Oh!! no Crashes…
It boasts how long it can stay up. Whereas previous versions of Windows were coy about how long they went between boots, XP is positively proud of its stamina. Go to the Command Prompt in the Accessories menu from the All Programs start button option, and then type ‘systeminfo’. The computer will produce a lot of useful info, including the uptime. If you want to keep these, type ‘systeminfo > info.txt’. This creates a file called info.txt you can look at later with Notepad. (Professional Edition only).

Oh God, from where people like devil get all this on Internet, I don't know. But it's really helpful.

Presence of Mind ... Awesome Joke

John works in a supermarket. A man came in and asked John for half a kilogram of butter. The boy told him they only sold 1 kg packets of butter, but the man was persistent. The boy said he’d go ask his manager what to do.
John walked into the back room and said, “There’s a bloody fellow out there who wants to buy only half a kilo of butter.”
As he finished saying this he turned around to find the man standing right behind him,
So he added, “And this gentleman wants to buy the other half.”

The manager finished the deal and later said to John, “You almost got yourself in a lot of trouble earlier, but I must say I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of it. You think on your feet, and I like it a lot.

Which place are you from?”
John replied, “I’m from Mexico, sir.”

“Oh really? Why did you leave Mexico?” asked the manager.
John replied, “They’re all just prostitutes and soccer players up there.”

“My wife is from Mexico,” the manager said.
John replied, “Which team did she play for?”

Amazing Optical Illusions

In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL (inside each black letter is a white letter). It's all very filosophical too, because it visualises the concept that good can't exist whithout evil (or the absence of good is evil ).

Can you see why this painting is called optical illusion ? You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical, the blue landscape reads the word illusion. See for yourself!

The word TEACH reflects as LEARN.

Read this text aloud. The word THE is repeated twice...but did u notice???

What if Mika want to lodge a complaint against rakhi sawant for sexual assault? Can he do so?? What you think???

National Commission for Women came forward for Rakhi Sawant's rescue. It's really a very good thing and support for her. But if I take an opinion from all the Indians who knows both of the personalities, I am sure about the result.

"We want to identify the guests who made fun of the incident. Action should be taken against all of them," NCW chairperson Girija Vyas said.

I don't have anything to say other than we should have these people attending all the parties happening in Film Circle in Mumbai. And many of them are making fun of it, while watching the TV in crores of homes in India.

Emphasising that every girl should take training in self-defence to deal with such situations, Vyas said had she been in Sawant's place, she would have slapped Mika.
I believe, there was no need for self-defence, as Rakhi was willingly kissing Mika in the party and enjoying the party just like others.

"It is not a matter of an individual or of Rakhi alone. This is a symbolic case through which we want to make it clear that women cannot be treated as objects," Vyas said.

There is no matter of object or something, but why Mika did not chose anyone else than Rakhi.

My question - What if Mika want to lodge a complaint against rakhi sawant for sexual assault? Can he do so?? What you think???

Now this makes me real LMAO... !!!

A man escapes from prison where he has been for 15 years. He breaks into a house to look for money and guns and finds a young couple in bed. He orders the guy out of bed and ties him to a chair, while tying the girl to the bed he gets on top of her, kisses her neck, then gets up and goes into the bathroom. While he's in there, the husband tells his wife"Listen, this guy's an escaped convict, look at his clothes! He probably spent lots of time in jail and hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw how he kissed your neck." If he wants sex, don't resist, don't complain, do whatever he tells you. Satisfy him no matter how much he nauseates you. This guy is probably very dangerous. If he gets angry, he'll kill us. Be strong, honey. I love you."To which his wife responds: "He wasn't kissing my neck. He was whispering in my ear. He told me he was gay, thought you were cute, and asked me if we had any Vaseline. I told him it was in the bathroom. Be strong honey. I love you too!!"

Fanaa.. Ya Funny!!!

I wish I could have continued watching the opening match Germany vs. Costarica (when they were 2:1) on the big screen in my office. No, how would I like to enjoy the most exciting game in the world, I surely wanted to ruin my evening in front of the 70 mm big screen in Ad Labs watching the best bollywood movie of 2006, Fanaa!

I should not blame anyone, but my close friend's wife and my wife (Note: Both women) had a big plan to hang me to boredom in the movie theater. I just happened to come out of office, and stand in the big queue of ticket counter to check if tickets are available for current show of Fanaa on their request (when I was praying in my mind that God, pls pls, make sure that I am at the window and the guy across should say "sorry, its house full"). Huh! Why it would happen when everything was planned!!

I found myself lucky as we were 15 minutes late for the movie (but whatever "fanaaik atyaachar" was done thereafter was impossible to take!!)

Overdose? have you ever felt this word literally... Well I did.
Of what? Shayaris... I thought at some moment that the story writers were 4 bewadas sitting at nights with their Kagaj and Kalam (Pen and Paper). Come on man, enough is enough - You cannot take it for more than 2-3 shayaris in one go... and imagine when you have to deal with it for all the movie before interval. Thank god, Aamir urf Rehan was not talking in Shayaris to his Naanu on phone from Bangkok Airport.. or that would have been the funniest script writing.

I can foresee one thing for sure. That all the Lukka Sukka Tour Guides in Delhi would now make sure that they whistle, wink at the girls in their tour buses in search of the "Kajol" of their life :). They just needed the BOOST!

I don't have any words to talk about Kajol's parents :) ... Better you read "Desperate Family of a Blind Female" in Kusum's blog. I meant word-to-word exactly.

We were lucky enough that Kajol ki Ammi was no more after interval .. or we could have seen some more Abba & Ammi ke emotional and "Pyar, Mohabbat" wale dialogues. I truly wish every struggling bf-gf pair in the world such beautiful parents :D.

Well, there were so many questions in my mind all the time while watching the movie; Every question was started with "Why the hell..." - Probably I did not keep my brains in my drawers in the office and went to watch the movie. I could not stop laughing at word exchange between RAW Agent (Ms. Tabu) and the head of the so called Anti Terrorist Group (Wohi Mota Bhaissa yaar). Cummon man, atleast try to portrait them serious enough to be called the people at such respectable posts.

The only beautiful thing in the movie was the cute kid and his sweet talks & yes, some beautiful Snow Screensavers.

I am f@$#ing tired now at 3 am after watching the last show, and want to get some rest now. Meanwhile, you can read this "Pure Fictional Interview of Mr. Kunal Kohli" taken by Rajuji Bathija (the distant distant cousine of Screen Play writer, Shibani Bathija :).
