Challenges are simply opportunities

When you encounter resistance, it means you are moving forward.  When you come across a challenge, it means you have reached an opportunity for growth.  Life becomes more rewarding as it becomes more demanding.  Each new challenge is an opportunity to stretch beyond your previous limits.  Most of the advantages you enjoy today were born in the difficulties through which you once traveled.  So revel in the beauty of each challenging effort.  Give your best to life, and life will return the favor many times over.

Two Women Now Take Charge of Windows

Since the emergence of the Internet, the tech sector, like the many other professions has been dominated by men. A report from nonprofit Catalyst indicates that women hold just above a quarter of the computing industry’s jobs, and that number has now declined over the past two decades. The executives of the industry also for the most part tend to be headed by men. A few exceptions to this gender biased tradition include:  Hewlett-Packard with two women CEOs Meg Whitman & Carly Fiorina; Then there’s Safra Catz, who is the president of Oracle. Sheryl Sandberg who sits at the helm of one of world’s most popular companies -Facebook, and who could forget Marissa Mayer who was recently appointed to take charge of a struggling Yahoo!.  However, none of Apple’s top five highest-paid executives are female. And although Intel does have a few female executives, none of them seem to play a role in engineering. So what could be a possible  reason behind this disparity?

According to a Carnegie Mellon study (2002), women tended to reject the “geek” tag significantly   more than their male counterparts and were more likely to say that they didn’t want computers to “become their life”; as reported by Alex Klein from

Apparently, this had no impact on Julie Larson-Green and Tami Reller: the two ladies who now take charge of Microsoft’s Windows division, which is undoubtedly the brand’s most important business. Julie Larson-Green replaces the former software boss Steven Sinofsky, who resigned from the company recently after his crucial Windows 8 launch met with disastrous reviews and much internal tension. Larson –Green will assume the role of managing the Redmond, Wash.–based company’s giant software engineering team, while Tami Reller will head Windows’ business strategy.

It’s difficult to chart out the amount of influence the two women will wield in the industry. According to Forbes, Microsoft is the world’s biggest public software company, with twice as much the sales of its closest competitor- Oracle. According to its 2011 year-end earnings report, Microsoft’s Windows division brings in a staggering eighteen billion dollars a year in revenues. While Yahoo’s total revenues added up to $4.98 billion in 2011. Larson-Green and Reller now join the software industry’s most powerful executives club.

Google's Nexus 4 - record break

Google Nexus 4 already sold out at U.S. Google Play store

Following a worldwide trend, the new smart phone goes on sale in the U.S. and within hours is no longer available.
Just minutes after going on sale in the United States, the new Nexus 4 smart phone from Google and LG was already sold out. Visitors to the Google Play store are greeted with a "coming soon" notice for both the 8GB and 16GB versions of the device.
The phones previously sold out in the United Kingdom in less than an hour. Some customers reported having trouble accessing the store or checking out successfully. Meanwhile, Dutch blog AndroidWorld reported that a planned Netherlands launch was scrapped amid high demand elsewhere.
It's unclear how many units Google was able to produce by launch time. The Nexus 4 won praise for its low $299 starting price, the fact that it arrived without a contract, and for subtle improvements in the Android 4.2 operating system, which it is the first phone to run. But itLG Nexus 4 drew criticism for failing to run on 4G LTE networks.
The expanded Nexus 7 lineup and the new Nexus 10 tablet, which also went on sale in the United States today, were still available for purchase in all their configurations.

Dengue Fever Remedy

One of my friends forwarded this Useful and important information today. 


I would like to share this interesting discovery from a friend's classmate's son who has just recovered from dengue fever. Apparently, his son was in the critical stage at the ICU when his blood platelet count drops to 15 after 15 liters of blood transfusion.

His father was so worried that he seeks another friend's recommendation and his son was saved. He confessed to me that he gave his son raw juice of the papaya leaves. From a platelet count of 45 after 20 liters of blood transfusion, and after drinking the raw papaya leaf juice, his platelet count jumps instantly to 135. Even the doctors and nurses were surprised. After the second day he was discharged. So he asked me to pass this good news around.

Accordingly it is raw papaya leaves, 2pcs just cleaned and pound and squeeze with filter cloth. You will only get one tablespoon per leaf.. So two tablespoon per serving once a day. Do not boil or cook or rinse with hot water, it will loose its strength. Only the leafy part and no stem or sap. It is very bitter and you have to swallow it like "Won Low Kat". But it works.

*Papaya Juice - Cure for Dengue*

You may have heard this elsewhere but if not I am glad to inform you that papaya juice is a natural cure for dengue fever. As dengue fever is rampant now, I think it's good to share this with all.

A friend of my friend had dengue last year.. It was a very serious situation for her as her platelet count had dropped to 28,000 after 3 days in hospital and water has started to fill up her lung. She had difficulty in breathing. She was only 32-year old. Doctor says there's no cure for dengue. We just have to wait for her body immune system to build up resistance against dengue and fight its own battle. She already had 2 blood transfusion and all of us were praying very hard as her platelet continued to drop since the first day she was admitted.

Fortunately her mother-in-law heard that papaya juice would help to reduce the fever and got some papaya leaves, pounded them and squeeze the juice out for her. The next day, her platelet count started to increase, her fever subside. We continued to feed her with papaya juice and she recovered after 3 days!!!

Amazing but it's true. It's believed one's body would be overheated when one is down with dengue and that also caused the patient to have fever papaya juice has cooling effect. Thus, it helps to reduce the level of heat in one's body, thus the fever will go away. I found that it's also good when one is having sore throat or suffering from heat.

Please spread the news about this as lately there are many dengue cases. It's great if such natural cure could help to ease the sufferings of dengue patients.

Furthermore it's so easily available.
Blend them and squeeze the juice! It's simple and miraculously effective!!
