Yes, in a recent research made by Dr. Sei Lee of San Francisco VA Medical Centre and colleagues have found that moderate drinkers are wealthier and more educated than others, also moderate alcohol consumers have a long life which was concluded in the new study. A drink a day mitigates a person’s risk of dying over the next 4 years. After undergoing various experiment and study and also accounting for several factors that affect alcohol use, they found that moderate alcohol consumers were still 28% less likely to die than non-drinkers. The study on this issue was first published in 1923. But still there is a confusion going on in this topic that moderate drinkers are healthier than non-drinkers, or alcohol itself used in moderation benefit health? So in order to get a conclusion for this study they have looked at 12,519 men and women who are aged 55 and older. During the 4 years of follow up, 14% of non-drinkers died, where as 7% of moderate drinkers and 12% of people who consumed 3 or more pegs a day also died. At the end of the day Lee and his colleagues found that people who had a peg a day had a higher socioeconomic status than the non-drinkers as measured by wealth, income and years of education. And an additional information which was concluded in the study was non-drinkers were also more likely to have functional disabilities like difficulties in dressing up themselves, to defeacate and the list goes on. So Drink Less and Stay Healthy. Make sure you dont cross limits. Cheers!!!!!!!!

Are Indians again got struck in match fixing?
I think you people wouldn’t have forgotten the T-20 World cup Championship which was hosted by England few months ago. In that tournament our Indian team was miserably sent out with super eight. But now the mystery behind that is coming out. In an interview to a leading newspaper Indian Lacto KING has said that “I never thought that I would get involved in match fixing but the amount was huge and I couldn’t control myself” he also added that he takes all the responsibility and the other three key players also co-operated with him by going with his words. They have also told that “we lost to south Africa to prove that we are not in form but this match was not fixed”
But an initial report tells us that Indian spinner has initiated the deal. When he was produced in front of the enquiry chair person he loosens the lays that “the key batsmen of the team started everything so when the top players involved in this why shouldn’t I earn money” (this was a nice justification given for a noble cause!) also he added that “even the most popular first class T20 tournament are being fixed”. One more tail bit info is the board has given a huge amount to get easy teams for us in the league matches!!!! When I read this info I got Bernard Shaw’s famous quote on cricket “11 fools are playing and 11 thousand fools are watching “ but now only the second half is becoming true

Jai ho once again captured the top lines of all newspapers & journals few weeks ago. But this time it failed to make a mark in the history. The word which got the international accreditation by our Rehman Contested in one more competition it was the war of the words that who is going to be the “One Millionth Word” of the Global Language Monitor. As everyone knows English is the one with the borrowed words and still it’s getting words from everywhere in the universe (that’s why it might be termed as universal language???).And the race for the millionth English word finally comes to an end with Web 2.0 winning it.Austin, Texas-based global language tracker, announced the lucky word!!!!. Web 2.0 is defined as a technical term which means “the next generation of World Wide Web products and services”. It has crossed from technical jargon into far wider circulation in the last six months.
And one more interesting thing is the other words which contested in the competition were Jaiho, noob, Slumdog and cloudcomputing. The two Indian words which are extracted from the film failed to make history and the interesting fact is Jaiho- 999,999th word and slumdog- 999,997th word.
In addition, to this 1,000,001st word is Financial Tsunami - The global financial restructuring that seemingly swept out of nowhere, wiping out trillions of dollars of assets, in a matter of months
Tail bit: At Global Language Monitor current rate, English generates about 14.7 words a day or one every 98 minutes.
