Karla Vanessa Perez is Pregnant with Nine Babies. Unreal.

Last November, Karla Vanessa Perez, had her hands full with her daughter and her newborn set of triplets. She didn't expect to be pregnant with nine more babies the following year. That's nine as in almost all of your fingers, about half of the Dugger family, and one more than the entire clan of Gosselin kids. All nine of them, currently, living inside one woman.

The Mexican news station Televisa broke the news of the 32-year-old mother's record-breaking multiple pregnancy this week, and Gawker has already stamped her with the tabloid-ready nickname "nonomom."

Video: teacher fired over IVF procedure
In a video of a news broadcast, Karla appears remarkably calm considering what lies ahead.

"Doctors tell me there are six girls and three boys," the 32-year-old said. "It's miraculous."

But science should probably take more of the credit. Up to 40 percent of in vitro fertilization pregnancies result in multiples. In extreme cases, like 'Octomom' Nadya Suleman, it's a result of multiple embryonic implants, exceeding the suggested limit of two. Suleman had 12 embryos implanted before her doctor had his license revoked.

More on the fate of the doctor who gave Suleman IVF
Televisa confirmed that Karla underwent fertility treatments before her pregnancy, but didn't provide any more details. For now, her doctors are focusing on a healthy delivery.

"I just hope that everything goes well," she told the news station.

Having multiples comes with serious risks to both mom and children. Carrying so many fetuses at once can cause internal bleeding, high blood pressure, and heart problems in women, and put one or more of the babies at risk for birth defects and fatalities.

New research on risk of multiples pregnancies
Already, Karla's children are likely to arrive two months early, and will have to be placed in incubation until they reach a stable weight. Her scheduled C-section is reported to be May 20, unless she is in good enough shape to withstand their continued growth.

If all goes well, the next hurdle will be how to support and care, not only for her nine newborns, but for her four other young kids. For now, the family is living with her in-laws in Coahuila, Mexico, near the Texas border. "My husband doesn't make so much money as a tire fitter so I think we're going to need extra help with hospital costs and everything," she said in the interview.

She's hoping that sharing her story with the public will lead to some generosity. Already Ernesto Cepeda Valdes, the mayor of city where she lives, has made a grandiose promise. "We will be like godparents to those babies and give all the support we can," he told the news.

Just over the border in Houston, another mother of mega-multiples is recovering after her emergency delivery. Laura Perkins gave birth at 30 weeks to three boys and three girls ranging in size from 1 pound 10 ounces to 2 pounds 15 ounces. Five of the babies are doing well, though Perkins reports on her blog that one is in more critical state. "One baby is sick, but making progress," reads a blog update on the Perkin's site. "In the NICU, things change hourly so we're constantly getting updates."

About one set of sextuplets are born in the U.S. each year. Suleman's kids upped the ante at eight, and are considered the longest-surviving octuplets in the world. If Karla's birth is a success, it will be the first on record. Expect a flurry of reality show offers to follow. But first, give that mom a little rest.

Apple’s Penchant for Secrecy Extends to its New Cafeteria

The latest big project for high-tech innovator Apple may very well be called the iCafeteria.

The world's largest technology company is planning to build a 21,468-square-foot eatery exclusively for Apple employees. It will be closed to the public. The idea behind the building is to create a space where workers can talk shop without fear of pesky competitors eavesdropping.

"We like to provide a level of security so that people and employees can feel very comfortable talking about their business, their research and whatever project they're engineering without fear of competition overhearing their conversations," said Dan Whisenhunt, director of real estate facilities, at a presentation to the Cupertino, Calif., City Council.

"That is a real issue today in Cupertino because we've got other companies here in our same business. It's very important to us," added Whisenhunt.
The two-story building will be centrally located in a cluster of Apple-owned buildings, including five already existing cafes. The company plans to raze a shuttered Japanese restaurant, a past favorite of employees including late co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs, according to Whisenhunt.

The first floor of the new building will hold a 204-seat cafeteria along with meeting rooms, a lounge and a courtyard. The second floor will have conference rooms, storage areas and administrative space. There will also be an underground garage. Perhaps the only downside for workers is the building will be closed for dinner.

The company also plans to break ground on its futuristic "spaceship" campus in Cupertino in the fall.

This week, Apple reported dizzying profits of $11.6 billion for the quarter, almost twice that from a year ago riding iPhone and iPad sales.

KFC ordered to pay $8.3 million to Australian girl

Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken has been ordered to pay Aus$8 million (US$8.3 million) to an Australian girl who suffered severe brain damage and was paralysed after eating a Twister wrap.
Monika Samaan was seven when she suffered salmonella encephalopathy -- a brain injury linked to food poisoning that also left her with a blood infection and septic shock -- in October 2005.
Several other family members also fell ill and they claimed Samaan's injuries, which include severe cognitive, motor and speech impairment and spastic quadriplegia, were caused by a chicken Twister wrap from a Sydney KFC outlet.
The New South Wales Supreme Court ruled in the family's favour a week ago and on Friday ordered KFC to pay the girl Aus$8 million in damages plus legal costs.
In a statement, the family's lawyer George Vlahakis said they were relieved the battle was over.
"Monika's severe brain damage and severe disability has already exhausted the very limited resources of the family," he said.
"Monika is now a big girl and they are finding it increasingly difficult to lift her and to look after her basic needs as well as look after Monika's younger siblings.
"The compensation ordered is very much needed. KFC have to date been determined that Monika does not receive a cent."
Last week KFC indicated it will appeal the decision but is yet to do so.
During the trial, Justice Stephen Rothman said the chicken became contaminated "because of the failure of one or more employees of KFC" to follow proper preparation rules, which he described as "negligent".

Verizon and AT&T reported their quarterly earnings in the past week, and they told nearly identical stories: Both are making a lot of money just from mobile data - the fees customers pay to access the Internet over their networks. Some numbers shared by AT&T make it clear why.
Ralph de la Vega, chief executive of AT&T Mobility, said during Tuesday's earnings call that about 60 percent of smartphone customers were paying for tiered data plans, and of those, 70 percent were choosing the higher-priced plans.
For its tiered data plans, AT&T charges $20 for 300 megabytes of data, $30 for three gigabytes or $50 for five.
Verizon's data plans are similar: $30 for two GB, $50 for five GB or $80 for 10 GB.
Mr. de la Vega's statement suggests that the majority of people on AT&T's tiered plans are paying at least $30 for three GB, or more.
And it turns out that three GB is far more than most people use. A recent Cisco study shows that the average amount of data used per smartphone last year was 150 MB - just 5 percent of 3 GB. And this year, Cisco predicts 100 million smartphones will surpass just 1 GB of usage.
The fact that the majority of customers using tiered data plans are paying for three gigs or more shows that AT&T has successfully created a pricing structure that compels people to pay for far more data than they will actually use.
Also worth noting is that AT&T raised the prices of its tiered data plans earlier this year. Previously, the two options were $15 for 200 MB, or $25 for two GB.
The revised AT&T plan actually reduced the cost per megabyte - with the 300-MB plan at $20, for example, customers paid 6.7 cents a megabyte, whereas with the older 200-MB plan at $15, customers paid 7.5 cents a megabyte. So in terms of value, the new AT&T plan is a better deal. But if you aren't using most of the data you pay for, you aren't really saving money.

Lawless Official Trailer #1 (2012) Shia LaBeouf Movie HD

Analysts say North Korea's new missiles are fakes

TOKYO (AP) — Analysts who have studied photos of a half-dozen ominous new North Korean missiles showcased recently at a lavish military parade say they were fakes, and not very convincing ones, casting further doubt on the country's claims of military prowess.
Since its recent rocket launch failure, Pyongyang's top military leaders have made several boastful statements about its weapons capabilities. On Wednesday, Vice Marshal Ri Yong Ho claimed his country is capable of defeating the United States "at a single blow." And on Monday, North Korea promised "special actions" that would reduce Seoul's government to ashes within minutes.
But the weapons displayed April 15 appear to be a mishmash of liquid-fuel and solid-fuel components that could never fly together. Undulating casings on the missiles suggest the metal is too thin to withstand flight. Each missile was slightly different from the others, even though all were supposedly the same make. They don't even fit the launchers they were carried on.
"There is no doubt that these missiles were mock-ups," Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker, of Germany's Schmucker Technologie, wrote in a paper posted recently on the website Armscontrolwonk.com that listed those discrepancies. "It remains unknown if they were designed this way to confuse foreign analysts, or if the designers simply did some sloppy work."
The missiles, called KN-08s, were loaded onto the largest mobile launch vehicles North Korea has ever unveiled. Pyongyang gave them special prominence by presenting them at the end of the parade, which capped weeks of celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of the country's founding father, Kim Il Sung.
The unveiling created an international stir. The missiles appeared to be new, and designed for long-range attacks.
That's a big concern because, along with developing nuclear weapons, North Korea has long been suspected of trying to field an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, capable of reaching the United States. Washington contends that North Korea's failed April 13 rocket launch was an attempt to test missile technology rather than the scientific mission Pyongyang claims.
But after poring over close-up photos of the missiles, Schiller and Schmucker, whose company has advised NATO on missile issues, argue the mock-ups indicate North Korea is a long way from having a credible ICBM.
"There is still no evidence that North Korea actually has a functional ICBM," they concluded, adding that the display was a "dog and pony show" and suggesting North Korea may not be making serious progress toward its nuclear-tipped ICBM dreams.
North Korea has a particularly bad track record with ICBM-style rockets. Its four launches since 1998 — three of which it claimed carried satellites — have all ended in failure.
Though North Korea frequently overstates its military capabilities, the missiles displayed this month might foreshadow weapons it is still working on.
David Wright, a physicist with the Union of Concerned Scientists who has written extensively about North Korea's missile program, said he believes the KN-08s could be "somewhat clumsy representations of a missile that is being developed."
Wright noted that the first signs the outside world got of North Korea's long-range Taepodong-2 missile — upon which the recent failed rocket was based — was from mock-ups seen in 1994, 12 years before it was actually tested on the launch pad.
"To understand whether there is a real missile development program in place, we are trying to understand whether the mock-ups make sense as the design for a real missile," he said. "It is not clear that it has a long enough range to make sense for North Korea to invest a lot of effort in."
Theodore Postol, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and former scientific adviser to the U.S. Chief of Naval Operations, said the Taepodong-2 design remains the more real future threat — though even that remains at least a decade away — and the KN-08 is simply a smoke screen.
"I believe that these missiles are not only mock-ups, but they are very unlikely to be actual mock-ups of any missiles in design," he said. "Fabricating a missile like the KN-08 would require a gigantic indigenous technical effort. ... The only way North Korea could develop such a missile with its pitiful economy would be if someone gave it to them."
He noted that a comparable U.S. missile, the Minuteman III, required "decades of expertise in rocket motors, and vast sums of intellectual, technological and financial capital."
Much attention, meanwhile, has been given to the 16-wheel mobile launchers that carried the missiles during the parade, which experts believe may have included a chassis built in China. That raises questions of whether China has violated U.N. sanctions against selling missile-related technology to Pyongyang.
Some missile experts say the launchers were designed to carry a larger missile than the 18-meter-long KN-08, and argue that North Korea would not have spent millions of dollars on them unless it has, or intends to have, a big missile to put on them.
But Wright said the launchers, like the missiles they carried, could also have been more for show than anything else.
"Given the international attention it has gotten from parading these missiles you could argue that the cost of buying the large trucks — which add a lot of credibility to the images of the missiles — was money well spent in terms of projecting an image of power," he said.

Capitals owner Ted Leonsis condemns racist fan reactions to Joel Ward’s Game 7 goal

Joel Ward of the Washington Capitals was born in Toronto to parents who migrated from Barbados. He used to hear racist taunts playing in youth hockey tournaments, but told the Washington Post this season that "I've [heard] nothing in the NHL."
On Wednesday night, Ward scored the series-winning goal against the Boston Bruins in overtime of Game 7.
The kind of racist language that Ward had avoided throughout his NHL career bubbled to the surface like sewage on social media.
Some of the reaction collected by Capitals Outsider after Ward's game-winner (Strong Language Warning):
"Hey Joel Ward!! You [expletive] spear chucking monkey, why don't you actually DO SOMETHING. You're totally irrelevant"
"How the [expletive] did Joel ward get out of my plantation? #WheresMyCotton"
"Warning to Joel Ward. Your one of three black guys in Canada. I will find you…and I will kill you."
And so on. There was outrage across the hockey world about the language being used about Ward, and on Thursday morning Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis thanked those who called out the offending parties via his blog titled "Keyboard courage and ignorance":
Shame on these folks who decided to take to their keyboards and show their ignorance and their racism and hate.
What these people have said and done is unforgivable. I hope they are now publicly identified and pay a huge price for their beliefs. There should be zero tolerance for this kind of hate mongering. Their messages should now stay glued into the algorithms to place a forever warning and a mark upon these people and their actions. They shouldn't be able to escape their keystrokes.
We will as an organization support Joel Ward. He has been a great teammate and a great citizen. He is now the star of stars in our city for his heroics last night. He is a friend and a fantastic player — who delivered — as advertised for us and our fans in the playoffs.
Comments about Ward's race were all over social media after Game 7.
The website Chripstory, which collects Tweets on a given topic to create a story, close to 50 tweets that use a slur against African-Americans are featured. The site Black Sports Online collected even more of them. (Strong Language Warning for Both)
This is a small collection of tweets, and some may not even have been hockey fans; and almost none of them were directed to Ward's feed. It's the kind of thing you might see on any night on social media about black athletes -- a sad commentary, no doubt -- magnified by the circumstances of Game 7.
To that end, Burnsy of With Leather (Strong Language Warning) had this to say:
Seth Davis from Sports Illustrated thinks we should find out who these people are and get them fired from their jobs. Fine, let's make them angrier. Other people think these d--kheads should be deleted from Twitter. While that seems reasonable, they'll just get new accounts and amplify their hate.
Short of forming small tactical teams that travel the country and locate these people based on IP addresses so we can round them up and put them on rockets and fire them into the sun — which I'm totally down for, by the way — the best we can do is ignore them. Hopefully, Joel Ward is, because he already beat them all.
Of course, Ward's race was also used for humor after he scored the game winner: Countless fans and media made note that Tim Thomas, who opted not to attend a Stanley Cup celebration with President Obama in January at the White House due to personal politics, had been defeated by a black man who works in Washington.
We're not trying to equivocate the two. One's a lighthearted jab at Thomas's politics, the other is outright racism. But in both cases, Joel Ward wasn't just an undrafted player who endured for 14 years before becoming a Game 7 hero -- he was the black hockey player that did so.

Can world's 'most threatened' tribe be saved?

A new international campaign hopes to save a group of people who have been dubbed "the most threatened tribe in the world" — the Awá tribe of Brazil — from encroaching outsiders who are gobbling up their land.
The Awá live in the Brazilian state of Maranhão on lands set aside for their hunter-gatherer lifestyle. But according to the tribal advocacy group Survival International, which is leading the new campaign, the tribe is increasingly under threat by illegal settlement and logging on their lands. One reserve set aside for the tribe, the Awá Territory, is one-third deforested, its trees stripped by illegal logging operations, some with sawmills operating only miles from Awá land.
"When the forest is destroyed, they either flee or they simply die," said Survival's field director Fiona Watson, who has worked with and interviewed many of the 360 surviving Awá who are in contact with society. On her last visit, she told LiveScience, "They were saying to me, 'We're suffering from hunger now.'" [Photos: One-of-a-Kind Places on Earth]
Tribal life under threat
The issue of indigenous people's land rights is an international one. Survival International estimates more than 150 million tribal people currently live in 60 countries worldwide. The most voiceless of these are uncontacted tribes, people who live without interaction with the outside world.
Uncontacted tribespeople are often romanticized as "primitive" people who aren't aware of the outside world, which is a myth, according to Survival. In fact, many are purposefully avoiding society after deadly run-ins with civilization in the past. Not only do clashes between native peoples and settlers sometimes result in violence, uncontacted people lack immunity to common diseases and can be felled by a simple flu virus. [Photos of Awá daily life]
Survival estimates that there are about 100 uncontacted Awá in addition to the 360 or so who have semi-settled in villages on their legally protected land. After first contact with the Awá in 1973, the Brazilian government has opened up the region where the tribe has long roamed. After iron ore was discovered in the area, the European Community and the World Bank even helped fund a railway and other developments in the region.
 "This acts like a magnet for settlers to pour in, and ranchers, so Awá land started to be invaded," Watson said.
Land rights battle
The Awá's right to their land was formally recognized in 2005, making mining and other activities by outsiders illegal; but satellite photos of the forest reveal that these rights are not being honored. Illegal logging has left the scar of deforestation on the land. This is especially devastating to the Awá, who depend on the forest for their survival, Watson said.
"When you talk to the Awá, it's just so clear how much the forest means to them," she said. "They just get everything from it."
That includes food — babaçu nuts and açaí berries as well as fresh meat — and medicines and supplies, such as the resin of the maçaranduba tree, which is used to make torches. [See Video of Awá Life]
As the forest vanishes, the Awá are trapped in a legal battle to save it. In 2009, a federal judge ruled that illegal settlers had to leave the Awá territories within 180 days. A legal appeal by one of the largest cattle ranchers in the region delayed the ruling. In December 2011, a second federal judge ruled that colonists and ranchers had to leave the land by December 2012. Survival fears that continued legal wrangling will delay these departures, too. If the case continues in the legal system, it could take 20 or 30 years for the Brazilian Supreme Court to decide it. By that time, it will be too late for the Awá.
"Time is not on their side," Watson said.
Violence and protection
In addition, reports from Awá tribe members and from the Brazilian Indian affairs office FUNAI suggest that this land controversy can all-too-easily turn deadly. In 1988, for example, townspeople in west Bahia, Brazil, met a lone native man who turned out to be of the Awá tribe. The man, Karapiru, had been living alone in the forest since 1975, when ranchers killed his daughter and wounded him and his son. The ranchers had taken his son, leaving Karapiru to believe him dead.
"It's a violent part of the Amazon," Watson said. "You have bows and arrows against guns."
Other tribes have also been haunted by violent clashes. In August 2011, FUNAI officials were alarmed to find evidence of a fight between drug traffickers and uncontacted native people, who went missing after the violence.
Watson and her colleagues are hoping that their new campaign will put pressure on Brazil to honor the Awá's legal right to their land and provide the funding needed to enforce the protected areas' borders.
"It's a very simple, direct message to the Minister of Justice," Watson said. "The land belongs to the Awá."

Marines discharge sergeant for Facebook posts

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Marine Corps said Wednesday it has decided to discharge a sergeant for criticizing President Barack Obama on Facebook.
The Corps said Sgt. Gary Stein will be given an other-than-honorable discharge for violating Pentagon policy limiting speech of service members.
The San Diego-area Marine has served nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps. He has said he was exercising his free-speech rights.
The discharge will mean he loses all benefits.
A federal judge previously denied a request to block military discharge proceedings against Stein, who called Obama an enemy on Facebook.
U.S. District Judge Marilyn Huff ruled then that the military has the right to respond to Stein's online comments in a case that has called into question the Pentagon's policies regarding social media and the limits regarding the speech of active duty military personnel.
Attorney J. Mark Brewer told Huff the entire process violates the First Amendment, which federal courts have the right to uphold.
Huff disagreed, calling Stein's postings "truly troubling." Service members have had their speech limited since the Civil War, especially if their comments are believed to disrupt good order and discipline.
The judge pointed out Stein's March 1 comments on a Facebook page used by Marine Corps meteorologists in which the sergeant stated, "Screw Obama and I will not follow all orders from him.

More than $1M found in armored car heist arrest

PITTSBURGH (AP) — An armored car guard accused of killing his partner in Pittsburgh and making off with more than $2 million was arrested in Florida on Tuesday after nearly two months on the run when someone called Pittsburgh police to report his whereabouts, authorities said.
Investigators recovered more $1 million from a storage locker and the home where Kenneth Konias Jr. was arrested early Tuesday in Pompano Beach, Fla., law enforcement officials said. Konias was arrested without incident at a home where he had been staying, the FBI said.
Special Agent Michael Rodriguez, head of the Pittsburgh FBI office, said Konias was cooperating with agents.
"He admitted his identity and he was cooperative when he was arrested," Rodriguez said at a news conference announcing the arrest.
Konias had two weapons with him, both handguns, one of which was his company-supplied weapon, which Rodriguez said Konias "indicated that was the weapon he used in the incident."
Rodriguez estimated investigators recovered between $1.3 and $1.5 million of the missing money — much of it at a nearby storage locker Konias led them to — but as much as a half-million dollars remains unaccounted for.
Konias' parents, Kenneth Sr. and Renee, were briefed about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday by local law enforcement officials that their son was now in FBI custody in Florida, Konias' attorney, Charles LoPresti, said.
"I can tell you that the parents are both relieved that he's now in custody, that the search is over for him, and they want the wheels of justice to turn fairly," he said.
"They're very relieved that nobody, including their own son, is in danger now that the search is done," LoPresti said.
Rodriguez didn't have details about the tip that led to Konias' arrest, but said Konias had "confided in several individuals" after arriving in Florida.
"I think he may have made the admission that he was remorseful about his activity, some of his activities, in Pittsburgh," Rodriguez said.
Konias appeared briefly in federal court in Fort Lauderdale a few hours after his arrest and waived his right to a removal hearing, allowing U.S. Marshals to transport him back to Pennsylvania.
U.S. Attorney David Hickton said he'll confer with Allegheny County prosecutors and Pittsburgh police to determine whether Konias will be prosecuted in Common Pleas court or federally.
Konias is charged by Pittsburgh police with criminal homicide, theft and robbery and by federal authorities with committing a Hobbs Act robbery and discharging a firearm in a crime of violence.
Although federal authorities do not have a specific homicide statute, Konias could be charged in Haines' death under a different section of the firearms charge he already faces and that would carry either life in prison or the death penalty if he were convicted.
Konias allegedly shot fellow Garda Cash Logistics guard Michael Haines before fleeing with money from the truck they were guarding on Feb. 28 in Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh auto squad detectives were conducting another investigation when they drove past the Garda armored car, which had been left idling under a bridge, and saw supervisors from that company at the scene about 3:45 p.m. that day.
Inside, a Garda official found Haines shot in the back of the head, and his duty pistol missing — along with Konias and what authorities would later determine was about $2.3 million.
Video surveillance of Garda headquarters showed Konias jumping into his SUV and speeding out of the parking lot just before 1:30 p.m. that day, or more than two hours before the abandoned armored car was found.
When police went to the home Konias shared with his parents, they found blood on his uniform jacket. His parents said Konias had left shortly after returning from work and a friend of Konias later told police he had called about 1:05 p.m. to say, "I (screwed) up. My life is over."
When the witness asked Konias if he had a bad day at work or got a girl pregnant, he replied, "Worse than that."
"What, did you kill someone?" the witness asked. After several seconds of silence, Konias said, "Yes" before asking that person to run away with him and stating "he had enough money to live on for the rest of their lives," the affidavit said, and asked about extradition laws in Canada and Mexico.
Authorities have previously said they recovered about $275,000, including about $250,000 stashed under a car at the Dravosburg home he shared with his parents and about $24,000 found a day earlier at the grave of a family member.
A Pittsburgh Fugitive Task Force member told the AP on condition of anonymity that the search for Konias was complicated by the fact that the stolen money was untraceable and in smaller denominations, mostly $20 bills and below.
The money was shrink-wrapped and, despite the amount believed stolen, it could likely fit in a container about the size of a foot locker. The source spoke anonymously because those details had not been publicly released by investigators.
AP Legal Affairs Writer Curt Anderson in Miami contributed to this report.

Ferrari Enzo abandoned in Dubai to finally be auctioned off

Remember the poor
Ferrari Enzo supercar abandoned in Dubai last August?

Well, it’s still sitting in the same police impound lot we last saw it in, but it may have a bright future ahead.

The Enzo, along with several other exotics, is to be auctioned off in what the Daily Mail, via Jalopnik, claims is the most expensive police sale in history.

The person who abandoned the car is believed to be a British citizen who leased the Ferrari and then fled Dubai 20 months ago when they couldn’t afford the repayments and traffic fines.

It’s not uncommon to face jail time in Dubai for outstanding debts so we tend to see some financed vehicles abandoned, either at airport car parks or even the owner’s former place of residence. However, it’s extremely rare--and sad--to see something like a Ferrari Enzo left abandoned.

Other cars seized by authorizes in Dubai and set to be auctioned include some that were stolen and others that were abandoned after they were involved in accidents. Under local laws, any car left for more than six months becomes property of the state unless a clear title can be produced and there are no outstanding fines.

Ferrari Enzo supercars, of which only 399 were built for public sale, typically fetch up to a million dollars or more on the open market. It’s not clear who much this example will go for, though it should still be a princely sum despite the poor condition the car must be in.

Zoya Akhtar to make short film on 100 years of Bollywood

Director Zoya Akhtar is making a short film to pay tribute to the Indian cinema industry, which would be celebrating a centenary next year.
The first Indian feature film, ‘Raja Harishchandra’, made by Dadasaheb Phalke, was released in April 1913.
“Yes, I am making a film on 100 years of Indian cinema.  It is not a documentary film…it is a fiction film. It is not from my production so I cannot talk about it,” Zoya told PTI here.
The film will reportedly feature Katrina Kaif, but Zoya refused to divulge details, saying, “The announcement will come next month.”
Of late, films such as Dirty Picture and Kahani—with a woman in pivotal role—have done well at the box office.
When asked if she would make a women-centric film, Zoya said: “I don’t look at it like that. All I can say is that woman characters in my film will have powerful roles. It is the story that excites me…it is not about it being a male or women oriented film. I don’t approach it that way.”

Turtle with Two Heads Discovered in Slovakia

Magdalena is not just a normal tortoise, the animal has two heads and five legs.
The reptile belongs to Roman Gresak from Zilina in Slovakia, who thought of a fitting name, “We call her Magdalena: one head is Magda and the second one is Lena”, Mr Gresak explained.
According to zoologists Magdalena’s unique case is comparable to the case of Siamese twins. During the pregnancy the embryos didn’t separate correctly.
Each of the heads has its own nerve system and the tortoise has got two brains, which work independently from each other. The question remains how the systems are connected within the body and which functions they share.
The tortoise would hardly survive in the wild though because other tortoises would exclude her from their collective.
Having two heads and five legs can also sometimes be a burden. “The second head sometimes doesn’t allow the tortoise to know where to go,” Mr Gresak said.
But one direction is already clear for Magdalena, the tortoise is heading for stardom. The Slovak press has announced that, similar to Paul the Octopus which predicted the Spanish win in soccer World Cup, Magdalena has been chosen to tip off the Ice Hockey championships, which take place in Slovakia this year.

Schwarzenegger Dog Pictures

Take a look at the dog below. What do you think ? Pretty sure that you don't believe what your eyes are seeing, you might think that this picture is photoshoped, but everything is real.
The type of dog pictured here is a “bully whippet,” a type of whippet with a genetic mutation that makes it more muscular and faster than standard ones.
Wendy, the bully whippet in this photograph, lives in Victoria, British Columbia, and is remarkable in that she has two mutated copies of the gene and is therefore a “double-muscled” bully whippet who weighs twice as much as a standard one. The increased muscle mass, along with metabolism and extremely low levels of body fats, can translate to impressive super-feats, including marked increases in speed, agility and power.

Target Belly Fat with Cardio

The fact is that in order to truly burn belly fat, you can’t just focus on one area of your body. It might seem like targeting your abdominals or sides should help, but not all fat is immediately visible.

For many years, doctors have advised middle-aged and older people to get plenty of aerobic exercise—that is, exercise requiring rhythmic movement of their arms and legs like walking, jogging, swimming, bicycle riding and so on.
However, individuals as they age also need more strength training. Up to age 50, people lose about four percent of their strength and muscle mass per decade. After that, the loss increases to about 10 percent per decade. By age 60 the average man or woman will have lost about one third of his muscle mass—unless he makes an effort to reverse the process through weight training.Aerobic exercise (which burns off body fat, improves endurance and boosts metabolism) and resistance training (which builds and strengthens muscles) clearly work hand-in-hand to create optimal health.In addition to aerobic and resistance training, flexibility and balance are also essential to healthy aging.With all the information we see and hear, it’s best to start with a SIMPLE PLAN.
Staying healthy is a full time job that most of us take for granted thinking of it as an option rather than a necessity. Without a change in this mindset, we will pay the price with our health. Proper nutrition is essential to optimal health.
Food is the most powerful medicine available to you. No prescription drug can reverse poor nutritonal choices. None of us is perfect nor should we try to be. Each healthy choice, no matter how infrequent helps. My goal is to help you turn “good enough” into “the best possible.”In these articles and the blogs to follow, we will share a variety of information about nutrition showing the importance of eating fresh foods, drinking plenty of water to our bodies, low glycemic index eating, why these changes matter and more. There will also be helpful hints along the way to make these changes easier.Good nutrition is one of the steps in adding life to your years.
Why Is Wellness Medicine Important?
American healthcare is in crisis. Nearly 90% of healthcare dollars are spent on managing chronic age related diseases which affect more than 125 million Americans.The tragedy is that the overwhelming majority of the degenerative diseases of aging can either be prevented or substantially slowed. They prematurely kill and disable millions of people needlessly. Heart disease, the number one cause of death in the US, kills more people that the next leading causes of death combined. Yet, 90% of first time heart attacks are preventable.
The American Cancer Society estimates that 90% of cancers are the result of environment and lifestyle. More than 1/3 are believed to be related to nutrition alone.Type II diabetes is now an epidemic although 90% of cases are preventable.
Because of our lifestyle choices, many people are aging and functioning like someone who is 15-20 years older than they are. In a world oriented toward disease driven treatment, wellness medicine focuses on helping you to function like someone many years younger than they actually are.It is time to forget the conventional medical paradigm of diagnose and treat. By the time most chronic diseases are diagnosed, they are quite advanced. The new and enlightened approach shifts the emphasis to a comprehensive, evidence based approach to managing the aging process.As a result, you can look and feel more youthful and dramatically improve their

Fat Belly Issues

New moms regularly struggle with the post pregnancy tummy bulge that accompanies giving birth. This is nothing new.
New moms regularly struggle with the post pregnancy tummy bulge that accompanies giving birth. This is nothing new. However, there are a number of ways to burn belly fat without giving up precious time with your child. Exercises involving your new child can easily burn belly fat faster than traditional workout regimens and you won’t even have to find a babysitter.

Many mothers of newborn babies hate the idea of stepping away from their children long enough to complete a good workout. That doesn’t mean you can’t lose belly fat. By using your child as resistance weight, you can integrate them into your workout and give them a fun pastime, too.

Take the traditional sit-up exercise. Modified, you can actually make this old fashioned exercise more efficient by including your baby. Hold the baby on your chest while completing the same movements and you’ll find that it takes on a whole new meaning. Not only are you lifting additional weight, which will burn belly fat faster, but you’re forced to focus on form and slowing your movements. It is well documented that a slow, well performed muscle workout is far more effective in gaining muscle mass and burning fat.

There are a number of other floor exercises that can be easily adjusted to suit the needs of a newborn’s mother. Try holding your child to one side and bending down, slowly, towards your extended leg. This will target the sides of your core and help to burn belly fat that has accumulated on your sides and lower back. Continue to repeat this motion ten times on each side for starters and increase the repetitions as it becomes easier.

Another exercise that can be easily added to your motherhood repertoire is a modified version of the sit up. As before, holding your baby on your chest, lift your knees off of the ground and lift your upper body. This position, held steadily, will provide a great workout for beginners or those who’ve just endured a difficult birthing process. Those moving into the later stages may want to increase the difficulty. This can be easily achieved by rotating your knees to one side and your upper body to the other, all the while cradling your child against your chest. Continue to shift back and forth. You’ll be surprised at the amount of resistance added by the weight of your newborn and feel like you’ve achieved a huge workout benefit.

One final method in the arsenal of those who want to <a href="http://burnbellyfatinfo.net/">belly fat loss</a> is the squat. This is a simple maneuver during which you hold the child against your chest and bend at the knees until they’ve reached a 90 degree angle, then rise to a standing position again. The simplicity of it will be quickly forgotten when you begin to feel the burn.

Using this method to lose belly fat has the added benefit of increasing difficulty as you begin to plateau. The resistance is always increasing because the weight of your child is constantly increasing. By the time your child is ready to attend school, you’ve got more than your original body back and you’ll finally have time to go to the gym.
