  1. i think you are getting offended for no reason.....It wasn't my intention.. I do not look down on people who go to McDonald's..it's their choice and I have no say... all I am trying to do is make people aware....and if they refuse to see the reality....I have nothing to say.... I am not saying eating there is Wrong or right..... I never said anything about nobody should work there..did i? It's people's choice....what could I possibly do about it... I just think that it's sad when people go there for meals when they have enough time to enjoy each other's company in a better ambience with better food... I used ot go to McDonald's when I was in high school coz I had no patience whatsoever and I knew what I wanted to eat... It's just surprising how people are ignorant to what is so apparent and disturbing....

  3. yeah you dont have to give a damn about the calories...it's the nutritional value....but when high bp, liver cancer and and hihg cholestrol hits you..oh yeah..you will care...
  4. I am a vegetarian by choice..and not coz of some religious or whatever crap...and yes..i have had the hamburgers..the big mac and all those things.... first of all, i am not against US...as a nation..althought I dont think it's a best country in the whole wide world..as some do...and i do admire certain traits of America...I'm still not Anti.. If you study their culture closely...you'll se.e.obviously if you are regular at Mac then u'll never realise it...they dont give a damn about personal relations or quality fo service....they are fast..efficient and every damn where... it's destroying cultures..as i said before..not only on the organisational level..but americans go to to Paris and eat at McDs...well ...Paris as you know is praised for it's bistros and alfreso cafes...with the finest cuisines and ambience...that's paris..but no..somehow Mac is more appeealing... yes they are changin menus...coz they realised that they wont last long if they didnt do it... I agree is convenient for people who dont have time...it's great for them..but for the people who do...??? It's a digrace to human relations...and quality of life...
  5. The virus installs an SMTP, or simple mail transfer protocol, programme on an infected PC that turns the computer into a type of e-mail computer server capable of sending out torrents of virus-infected messages, Genes said. The e-mail has spread quickly because it spoofs e-mail addresses, making it appear as if the e-mail comes from a friend or co-worker. "It's an old spammers trick," said Genes. The virus is not believed to be particularly damaging to the infected computer, but it has the potential to unleash a flood of virus e-mails that could bog down corporate networks, Genes said.
  6. Their corporate culture and practices are destroying the human side of organisations ......and degrading our society in innumerable ways...
  7. LONDON: A new e-mail virus capable of turning infected personal computers into "spamming" machines emerged on Friday targetting corporate and home users in Europe and the United States, a computer security expert said. Anti-virus software makers Trend Micro reported that tens of thousands of its corporate computer users in France and Germany were hit on Friday afternoon by the virus, dubbed "Mimail.C". By 16:30 GMT on Friday, there were reports of infections in the United States too, said Raimund Genes, European president of Trend Micro. The firm had a "medium risk" rating on the bug. "We may be upgrading it to high risk if it spreads in the US," he added. ( Do you regularly update your anti-virus software? ) The virus carries the subject message line "our private photos???" Opening the e-mail triggers the virus into action. Novemeber 1, 2003

  10. We all miss being home for Tihar..don't we.. I thought maybe if we shared our experiences during Tihar away from home..it'd be nice.... Well, this year...one of my friends from Germany was visiting...and we making Nepali dinner complete with sweets and chiya..and we played some Nepalese music...my flatmates also joined us..we were like 6 people...my friend taught them some Nepali dance..and it was so much fun..although we did feel a little homesick..it's unfortunate that we are not allowed to light candles in our flat...but anyways..it was a nice feeling.... and we did crave for sel rotis and achaar.. How was your Tihar?
  11. Honestly..... Do you really like going to McDonald's??

  13. Gays themselves are divided. Some welcome these studies because they confirm their own feeling that sexual orientation is more than a whim. Others fret that the implication is that homosexuals are abnormal or defective — and that future genetic screening will eliminate people like them. For me the implication, if these studies are to believed, is different: It is that something is defective not in gays, but in discrimination against them. A basic principle of our social covenant is that we do not discriminate against people on the basis of circumstances that they cannot choose, like race, sex and disability. If sexual orientation belongs on that list (with the caveat that the evidence is still murky), then should we still prohibit gay marriage and bar gays from serving openly in the armed forces? Can we countenance discrimination against people for something so basic as how they blink — or whom they love? END OF ARTICLE
  14. Gay at Birth? By NICHOLAS D. KRISTOF Published: October 25, 2003 Columnist Page: Nicholas D. Kristof Kristof Responds: The Columnist Addresses Readers' E-mail Forum: Discuss This Column E-mail: nicholas@nytimes.com Some people say we should settle gay rights disputes on the basis of the Old Testament. I say we should rely on blinking patterns. In case you've misplaced your latest copy of Behavioral Neuroscience, there's a fascinating article about how people blink. It turns out that when males and females are exposed to a loud noise, they blink in somewhat different ways — except that lesbians appear to blink like men, not like women. The study (peer-reviewed but based on a small sample) is the latest in a growing scientific literature suggesting that sexual preferences may be not simply a matter of personal preference but part of our ingrained biology. Indeed, some geneticists believe that sexual orientation in men (though not women) may be determined in part by markers in the Xq28 chromosomal region. One needs to be wary of these kinds of studies, partly because researchers drawn toward this field may have subconscious biases of their own. Moreover, many of the studies on the biological basis of homosexuality are flawed by small numbers or by the difficulty of finding valid random samples of gays and heterosexuals. Still, while the data has problems, it is piling up — there are at least seven studies on twins. If there is a genetic component to homosexuality, one would expect identical twins to share sexual orientation more than fraternal twins, and that is indeed the case. An identical twin of a gay person is about twice as likely to be gay as a fraternal twin would be. Earlier this year, the journal Personality and Individual Differences published an exhaustive review of the literature entitled "Born Gay?" After reviewing the twin studies, it concluded that 50 to 60 percent of sexual orientation might be genetic. Many studies also suggest that sexual orientation may be linked to differences in brain anatomy. Compared with straight men, gay men appear to have a larger suprachiasmatic nucleus, a part of the brain that affects behavior, and some studies show most gay men have a larger isthmus of the corpus callosum — which may also be true of left-handed people. And that's intriguing because gays are 39 percent more likely to be left-handed than straight people. Now look at your fingers. Men typically have a ring finger that is longer than the index finger, while in women the two are about the same length. However, two studies have suggested that lesbians have finger-length ratios that are more like those of men than of women. contd. Studies suggest that ring-finger length has to do with the level of androgens in the womb, and that may help explain another puzzle of homosexuality: a male is more likely to be gay if he has older brothers. It doesn't matter if he has older sisters, but for each older brother he is about 33 percent more likely to be gay. Some scientists speculate that a woman's body adjusts the androgen level in her womb as she has more sons, and that the androgens interact with genes to produce homosexuality. O.K., these theories are potentially junk science until the studies are replicated with much larger numbers. But we also shouldn't ignore the accumulating evidence. "There is now very strong evidence from almost two decades of `biobehavioral' research that human sexual orientation is predominantly biologically determined," said Qazi Rahman, the University of London researcher who led the blinking study. Many others don't go that far, but accept that there is probably some biological component.
