WASHINGTON: An American believed to be the world's tallest woman has died, nursing home staff told AFP on Thursday.
Sandy Allen, 53, who grew to be more than seven feet, seven inches tall died on Wednesday at a nursing home in Shelbyville, Indiana.
A spokeswoman for the Heritage House Convalescent Centre in Shelbyville said Allen "had been in failing health in recent years and died of natural causes".
She had been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's tallest woman. By the time she was 10, Allen already stood six foot three. By 16, she was over seven feet tall, the Indianapolis Star daily said.
It's believed that a tumour on her pituitary gland caused her abnormal growth. It was removed when Allen was in her 20s, but she continued to be affected by a variety of health issues related to her height, including poor circulation and weak leg muscles that kept her confined to a wheelchair in her later years.
While her height brought her and the town of Shelbyville fame, it also led to personal despair, especially in her late teens when she spoke about her height being an impediment to relationships.
The newspaper quoted a letter Allen is said to have written to Guinness in 1974 in which she said: "I would like to get to know someone that is approximately my height. It is needless to say my social life is practically nil and perhaps the publicity from your book may brighten my life."

TOKYO (Reuters Life!) - Japanese girls born last year can expect to live until they are 86 years old, which would make them the longest survivors in the world, a report from the country's health ministry showed.
Boys born in 2007 can expect to live to the age of 79.2, ranking third after Iceland and Hong Kong, the report said.
Japan's females have topped the world's longevity ranks for 23 years, something researchers have attributed to their healthy diet and tight social ties, among other reasons.
The report is the latest sign thatis ageing quicker than any other country, with government data showing a tenth of the population aged 75 years or older.
The proportion of those 65 years or older is also seen doubling to 40 percent by mid-century.
"People are in different social environments and are influenced by various factors and eating habits, so it's hard to answer the question of why people live long," a ministry spokesman said.
"But we can say that the improvement of medical technologies helps," the spokesman added. Japan has improved treatments for the ageing population's three biggest killers -- cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Japan also has one of the world's lowest birth-rates, leaving the government with the challenge of how to fund its pension requirements, take care of its elderly and maintain productivity.

So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died, she would put all the money in the casket with him.
Well, one day he died. He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to her closest friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said "Wait just a minute!"
She had a shoe box with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and rolled it away. Her friend said, "I hope you weren't crazy enough to put all that money in the casket."
"Yes," the wife said, "I promised. I'm a good Christian, I can't lie. I promised him that I was going to put that money in that casket with him."
"You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?"
"I sure did. I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check."

Baby want you tell me why there is sadness in your eyes
I don't wanna say goodbye to you
Love is one big illusion I should try to forget
But there is something left in my head
You're the one who set it up
Now you're the one to make it stop
I'm the one who's feeling lost right now
Now you want me to forget every little thing you said
But there is something left in my head
* CHORUS : I won't forget the way you're kissing
The feelings so strong were lasting for so long
But I'm not the man your heart is missing
That's why you go away I know
You were never satisfied no matter how I tried
Now you wanna say goodbye to me
Love is one big illusion I should try to forget
But there is something left in my head
* REPEAT CHORUS
Sitting here all alone in the middle of nowhere
Don't know which way to go
There is so much to say now between us
There ain't so much for you
There ain't so much for me anymore

All long time I've wait for you
With my heart and my soul
Wishing for you and me
Together we stay happy
Just last week you gave me hope
But now you just said nope
You said we haven't started
Yet I always thought we already committed
Inside your mind I'm no longer needed
For a week time you judged me
Saying I'm not any good
To you I may no longer so suit

"I’m sure that I will always be
A lonely number like root three
The three is all that’s good and right,
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath the vicious square root sign,
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick,
with just some quick arithmetic
I know I’ll never see the sun, as 1.7321
Such is my reality, a sad irrationality
When hark! What is this I see,
Another square root of a three
As quietly co-waltzing by,
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer,
Rejoicing as an integer
We break free from our mortal bonds
With the wave of magic wands
Our square root signs become unglued
Your love for me has been renewed".

I don't actually like to read book. I always feel very sleepy once I touch the book and read for about 10-20mn. Usually, I read book in the evening just to make myself feel sleepy then enjoy the harmony of my sleep. However, with Sidney's book , I love it. I couldn't wait to see what is going to happen in the next page every time I read his book. This is the book I have just finished reading.
It's about a girl fighting for her dream through real estate & development business after living in a sorrow and carefree childhood. She is the perfectionist and she can do everything just to get the thing done.Her zenith was when she almost finished her world tallest building project then problems started to happen. She is too greedy and because of her enemy, she fails.
I give Sideney a thumb up!!!

We couldn’t wait to go to Kompong Som in the early morning and the journey began with joy and laugh from all of us. It was not until I carelessly pump the water in the car water’s tank and forgot to tape back the cap. After driving 150km away , I realized something was wrong with the car and I glanced at the attention table and saw the temperature was at the highest level. I quickly drove to the side and checked out the problem. I found it – water tank’s cap was missing. Oh shit!! The smell was very strong from the engine and water was vaporized. That was the beginning of the horrible story. We were working together to fill in the water inside the car. We stopped for awhile and on the engine. After many repeating off and on the engine, ultimately the engine started running and we moved forward. However, we couldn’t go far because the temperature kept on rising. Until we found a car mechanic workshop, we can keep the water tank cap closed. I thought that was the end of the story but I was totally wrong. God wanted to play around with me. After that we moved on around 10 km , the same problem happened . We kept on doing the same work again and again and again until I was so fed up but no choice I had to do.
At 1:30pm , we reached Kompong Som after almost 8 hours drive from Phnom Penh. My friend’s friend brought me to a car mechanic shop and got the car repaired. While I was waiting hungrily, my friend went down to find hotel. Price was rocket and all hotels and guesthouses were full house and left only 1 room which cost 40 USD per day stay. 7 of us had no choice but got to squeeze together in that room. In the evening , the car was fixed and we were very happy and enjoyed our dinner at the beach. People from every corner of the country and oversea made a big crowd and the beach very happening. It was my first time seeing such a big crowd at the beach in the evening. Lighting, decorating and the laugh and smile of the people made the place such a pleasant tourist location. Many people fired the firework and created a “boom, boom “sound everywhere. We sang , we screamed , we played game. We had so much fun.
Tomorrow morning, we went to visit Koh Pos Island. I must give it a wow. It was such a beautiful, calm, and attractive nature. The scenery was amazing. I love it. We built sand castle , we played games and relaxed at the beach.
Until afternoon , we had our lunch and ready to go back home. I thought the car problem was fixed and we wouldn’t have that problem again. Who know? God still wanted play around with us. I drove for 50km , the temperature meter again move to the high level. Damn it!!! It was so irritating. I was so disappointed and felt no appetite to give a word. I knew, some of my friends felt very sick of it also. We went to see a car mechanic shop nearby and asked them to do check up. The mechanic said ‘ the problem is most likely because of the choking of the water tank and it requires an hour more to clean up , otherwise you need to fill the water in every time the temperature jump to high level” I decided not to get it fixed because of the timing is inappropriate. Then , we moved forward with a very slow speed. After 10km drive , temperature jumped high again. I felt so bad. After filling the water , we moved forward again. This time I could smile again because I can drive 23km before the temperature jumped high. We kept on moving until Yeay Mao then stopped to ask for a safe trip going home. Magically, temperature was at the normal level until we get back to Phnom Penh.
This trip was full of fun and troubles. Though many troubles we were experiencing but I felt happy because I could understand more about my friends and to some I felt less distant for friendship.

Phnom Penh, a city of more than 2 million dwellers ( 2006 est ) , and the heart of the business and political center in Cambodia . During the 1920s to 1960s, it was known as the Pearl of Asia but glumly turned into unrest political turmoil and then horribly a ghost house during the late 1970s. Though recently situation is much better than the darkness era, major social problems still ecstatically view the city as their paradise. Among which, traffic jam and accident are by at large caused by the recklessness and lawless of the drivers and especially motor riders.
What is funny here is that those drivers have created their own traffic rules.
Green light: It’s my way. I can drive whatever speed I want
Red light : Not my way though, but I glance at left and right then double my speed
Yellow light : Top speed
Consequently, when worse comes to worst , you can get stuck there for hours until there is an intervention of the traffic police. However, the question is “Why don’t they dig for the root of the problem and solve it with law that is already passed by the National Assembly? Why do they step in only when problem is already occurred?” This is not to mention of the low ranking officers who are given an undeserved salary of 20 to 30 USD per month but those who are the chief traffic police officers.
To my idea, I suggest a construction of a roof at each corner of the crossroad that protects them against the sunlight. This is because most of the time , the temperature is very hot and they always look for somewhere to escape from the sunlight. Likewise, we see people driving under the shadow of the tree more than anywhere of the road. Once we build a roof for them to relax at each corner of the crossroads, they will slow down the speed and relax under the cool roof with a mighty air while waiting for the green light to come. Therefore, there will be less accidents and similarly less traffic jam at the crossroad. However, it’s applicable only when the weather is hot but how about at night or during the raining season? I believe people will get used to it when they apply it so often in the day time.
Here is an innovative idea to solve traffic problem in Denmark. Not sure if we should apply it also ? haha... By the way, girl under 21 is not allowed to watch this clip, and if you insist , I sincerely apologize in advance ...

I wrote your name on sand, it got washed
I wrote your name in air, it was blown away, then
I wrote your name on my heart and I got heart attack.
God saw me hungry, He created pizza
He saw me thirsty, He created Pepsi
He saw me in the dark, He created light
He saw me without problems, He created YOU.
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
You should know what you are
And once you know what you are
Mental hospital is not so far.
The rain makes all things beautiful,
The grass and flowers too
If rain makes all things beautiful,
Why doesn't it rain on you?
Roses are red, violets are blue
Monkeys like you should be kept in zoo
Don't feel so angry you will find me there too
Not in cage but laughing at you,
When your life is in the darkness,
Pray to God ask Him to free you from the darkness,
And if after you pray and you are still in the darkness,
Please pay your ELECTRICITY BILL!!!

Khmer Krom , the indigeneous Cambodian people living in today along Mekon Delta in southern Vietnam, were recently been reported to have been terribly abused by the Hanoi authories . This has led to the strong stand up of oversea Cambodian to protest against the Vietnamese government across the globe such as in US, Canada, Australia , France etc ...
Khmer Krom people are living under the eyes of authories and have been always accused as the separatist or spy of the Khmer Krom Federation based in US ,also a member of Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization ( UNPO ). Thus, many especially buddist monks have been disrobed , imprisoned or killed by the VN authority. Khmer Krom are not allowed to go out from from VN or by all mean very hard to get out . They will be imprisoned when they go back if they dare to go try to escape to go abroad or Cambodia. Not only that I heard from the news but with the real people that i have met . People who can escape to Cambodia or abroad will never go back , he told me , a monk I met in Chargi airport when I went back home a few month ago.
Hopefully, history will change when time is moving and wish that all the people can live in peace.I don't wish that Ho Chi Minh can be returned back to Cambodia someday but just hope that Khmer Krom people to be able to live peacefully, happily and be respected like others in their indigenous homeland.

I have nothing against an occasional soy snack. Soy is nutritious and contains lots of good things. Unfortunately, when you eat or drink a lot of soy stuff, you're also getting substantial quantities of estrogens.
Estrogens are female hormones. If you're a woman, you're flooding your system with a substance it can't handle in surplus. If you're a man, you're suppressing your masculinity and stimulating your "female side," physically and mentally.
In fetal development, the default is being female. All humans (even in old age) tend toward femininity. The main thing that keeps men from diverging into the female pattern is testosterone, and testosterone is suppressed by an excess of estrogen.
If you're a grownup, you're already developed, and you're able to fight off some of the damaging effects of soy. Babies aren't so fortunate. Research is now showing that when you feed your baby soy formula, you're giving him or her the equivalent of five birth control pills a day. A baby's endocrine system just can't cope with that kind of massive assault, so some damage is inevitable. At the extreme, the damage can be fatal.
Soy is feminizing, and commonly leads to a decrease in the size of the penis, sexual confusion and homosexuality. That's why most of the medical (not socio-spiritual) blame for today's rise in homosexuality must fall upon the rise in soy formula and other soy products. (Most babies are bottle-fed during some part of their infancy, and one-fourth of them are getting soy milk!) Homosexuals often argue that their homosexuality is inborn because "I can't remember a time when I wasn't homosexual." No, homosexuality is always deviant. But now many of them can truthfully say that they can't remember a time when excess estrogen wasn't influencing them.
Doctors used to hope soy would reduce hot flashes, prevent cancer and heart disease, and save millions in the Third World from starvation. That was before they knew much about long-term soy use. Now we know it's a classic example of a cure that's worse than the disease. For example, if your baby gets colic from cow's milk, do you switch him to soy milk? Don't even think about it. His phytoestrogen level will jump to 20 times normal. If he is a she, brace yourself for watching her reach menarche as young as seven, robbing her of years of childhood. If he is a boy, it's far worse: He may not reach puberty till much later than normal.
Research in 2000 showed that a soy-based diet at any age can lead to a weak thyroid, which commonly produces heart problems and excess fat. Could this explain the dramatic increase in obesity today?
Recent research on rats shows testicular atrophy, infertility and uterus hypertrophy (enlargement). This helps explain the infertility epidemic and the sudden growth in fertility clinics. But alas, by the time a soy-damaged infant has grown to adulthood and wants to marry, it's too late to get fixed by a fertility clinic.
Worse, there's now scientific evidence that estrogen ingredients in soy products may be boosting the rapidly rising incidence of leukemia in children. In the latest year we have numbers for, new cases in the U.S. jumped 27 percent. In one year!
There's also a serious connection between soy and cancer in adults – especially breast cancer. That's why the governments of Israel, the UK, France and New Zealand are already cracking down hard on soy.
In sad contrast, 60 percent of the refined foods in U.S. supermarkets now contain soy. Worse, soy use may double in the next few years because (last I heard) the out-of-touch medicrats in the FDA hierarchy are considering allowing manufacturers of cereal, energy bars, fake milk, fake yogurt, etc., to claim that "soy prevents cancer." It doesn't.
P.S.: Soy sauce is fine. Unlike soy milk, it's perfectly safe because it's fermented, which changes its molecular structure. Miso, natto and tempeh are also OK, but avoid tofu.

What would you do if your company’s turnover is negative and you also expect a negative profit in the future for a few years? You can’t predict how worse your company will be performing within these few years. You may incur little loss or substantial loss. However, there is little chance that you will be in a terrible substantial loss. In a few years after, your company’s performance will be doing as usual. You might want to close your company and reopen it in a few years later or venture into a new business but let’s put a dilemma here. If you close your company you will expect a future lawsuit against you for not being able to deliver your promise. You will be penalized financially by the court. How are you going to solve this problem? You might want to calculate NPV and compare between the 2 but the expected loss is unpredictable. Any idea how to solve it? Some may risk to shutdown because it will be a one time punishment. While others may still be going with the project and continue for a few years with hope that the performance will not be worse come to worst. What is your ideas ?

Dear Troubled User:
This is a very common problem that men complain about. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0, thinking that it is just a Utilities and Entertainment program. Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and is designed by its Creator to run EVERYTHING !!!
It is also impossible to delete Wife 1.0 and to return to Girlfriend 7.0 . It is impossible to uninstall, or purge the program files from the system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is designed to not allow this. Look in your Wife 1.0 manual under Warnings-Alimony/ Child Support .
I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and work on improving the situation. I suggest installing the background application "Yes Dear" to alleviate software augmentation. The best course of action is to enter the command C:APOLOGIZE! because ultimately you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the system will return to normal anyway. Wife 1.0 is a great program, but it tends to be very high maintenance .
Wife 1.0 comes with several support programs, such as Clean and Sweep 3.0 , Cook It 1.5 and Do Bills 4.2 . However, be very careful how you use these programs. Improper use will cause the system to launch the program Nag Nag 9.5 .
Once this happens, the only way to improve the performance of Wife 1.0 is to purchase additional software. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Diamonds 5.0 !
WARNING!!! DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3 . This application is not supported by Wife 1.0 and will cause irreversible damage to the operating system!
Best of luck,

It was amazing during my elated Art workshop journey, firstly, with the Photoshop workshop and secondly for today painting. The starting was a bit boring; however, later the boot was on the other foot. Needless to say, everybody knows Photoshop is super amazing. It was a half day workshop, so it was still a very basic though. I wish I could know the function as much as possible and could a produce beautiful piece of works. On the other hand, for painting the blending is magic. You can have only quite a few numbers of colors on the table, still you will be able to produce so many colors. In the workshop, it was quite boring to just listening to the instructor talking, but once I took out the pencil and brush to draw, it was quite fun haha. Several produced nice and funny pictures and sadly it was not me … Anyway, the attached beautiful photo above is drawn by me … haha… I know you will give me a WOW for such a beautiful drawing. But never mind, just keep it with you =) ( Singlish we say "Just keep it Lah" )
Today, at least I could widen my eyes on the art of painting and it was due to the sterling painting and color blending of the drawing that I always thought was nothing. Ok , just this much to share with you all . Let enjoy the picture and don’t get amazed too much

Of one day, the total population in Singapore consumes 300 million US gallons of water (One U.S. gallon equals 3.785 x 10-3 cubic meter), of which water supplies came from 4 sources, Catchment, Imported, NEWater, and Desalinated water.
Catchment water is the water collected from rainfall across Singapore. The reservoirs have been located about half of the Singapore surface area. Moreover, there is a proposal for a huge reservoir to be built in 2009 at Marina Bay, which could lead the reservoirs area to be two-third of the total island area. Now, the weight of water consumption from catchment is accounted for 50 % of total consumption.
Apparently, water is worth invaluable in Singapore, as the island is insufficiently supplied by its own available resources. Consequently, external support is vital. Malaysia has been playing an important role in each and individual Singaporean’ lives, which is to give water support to Singapore. Nearly 50% of everyday water consumption is imported from Malaysia. Analyzing the weakness of Singapore, water has always been used as a threat to Singapore in any conflicts.
Due to the obvious weakness of Singapore, the government has been trying to push up any new water project as to increase her independency of water resources in the island. September 13, 2006, Singapore opened Asia’s largest desalinated plant in Tuas. This new plant will be able to supply 30 million US gallons, which equals 10% of the total consumption.
The plant is to turn the used water into new usable water, as its name referred. 94% of its water is used to supply for industrial use, while another 6% will come to daily consumption. The process has gone through 4 stages to finalize NEWater product.
Stage 1 ( Microfiltration ) : The water pipe will trap the polluted particles like viruses , bacteria , etc and allow only the salts and organic molecules to go through the membrane.
Stage 2 ( Reverse Osmosis ) : This stage allows only as small as water molecules to go through .
Stage 3 ( UV purification ) : At this stage , the UV disinfection will make sure the water is 100% clean .
Stage 4 : Water is readjusted to have a neutral PH and minerals are added into the water .

Actually , this movie was based on the Japanese scientific fiction " Japan Sinks " published in 1973. 6.4 million copied was sold and generate 40million of revenue at that time ...
I wonder if such a thing could ever happen to Japan as Japan hit the record in earthquake eruption ?
