USA Checking al Qaeda Claim…

While al Qaeda is considered by the U.S. to be a likely suspect in the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Banazir Bhutto, U.S. intelligence officials say they cannot confirm an initial claim of responsibility for the attack, supposedly from an al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan.

An obscure Italian Web site said Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, al Qaeda’s commander in Afghanistan, told its reporter in a phone call, “We terminated the most precious American asset which vowed to defeat [the] mujahedeen.”

Benazir Bhutto Assassinated in Pakistan


Former Pakistani leader Benazir Bhutto, the first woman prime minister of an Islamic nation, was assassinated in an attack at an election rally in the city of Rawalpindi. She was 54.

``She's dead,'' a Bhutto aide, Imran Hayat, said today as he sobbed in a telephone interview from Rawalpindi General Hospital. Rioting began as her supporters gathered outside the hospital.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Bhutto died in the blast or was shot by the bomber before he blew himself up, Bhutto spokesman Farhatullah Babar told state-run television. Interior Ministry spokesman Javed Cheema said earlier in a phone interview that she was killed in the bombing. At least 15 other people were also killed and more than 60 were injured, police said.

President Pervez Musharraf condemned the killing and appealed for calm in a statement broadcast on state television, after rioting broke out in cities across Pakistan. In Rawalpindi, where the army has its headquarters, shops were torched and Bhutto's backers clashed with police. Unrest broke out in her hometown, Larkana, while in Lahore there were reports of gunfire from some parts of the city, Pakistan's AAJ television reported.

``It was Benazir Bhutto that posed the main threat to pro- Musharraf parties,'' Farzana Shaikh, Pakistan analyst at the London-based Chatham House foreign policy institute, said in a phone interview from Montpellier, France. ``Long-term it raises very, very serious questions about the stability of Pakistan.''

October Attack

The opposition leader survived an assassination attempt on the night of her return to Pakistan in October after eight years in self-imposed exile. At least 136 people died when suicide bombers attacked her welcome procession on Oct. 19 in Karachi, where thousands of supporters had gathered to receive her.

Harvard and Oxford-educated Bhutto was born in Karachi, Pakistan's biggest city, and was the eldest of two sisters and two brothers. She is survived by her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, son Bilawal and two daughters, Bakhtawar and Aseefa.

Bhutto attributed her interest in politics to her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the prime minister overthrown by General Mohammad Zia ul-Haq in a 1977 military coup.

``She was, like her father, a deeply flawed leader,'' Shaikh said. ``But, she was one of the few popular leaders of Pakistan. She did street politics like no other. She was able to give people a certain sense of belonging.''

Zia ul-Haq went on to become president in 1978. The elder Bhutto, founder of the Pakistan Peoples Party, was hanged in 1979 after his conviction on charges of authorizing the murder of an opponent. Both Bhutto's brothers were also murdered.

`It Chose Me'

``I didn't choose this life, it chose me,'' Bhutto wrote in the preface to the second edition of her autobiography, Daughter of the East, in April 2007. ``Born in Pakistan, my life mirrors its turbulence, its tragedies and its triumphs. Pakistan is no ordinary country. And mine has been no ordinary life.''

Bhutto was imprisoned for five years, mostly in solitary confinement, just before her father's execution. She later lived in London, returning to Pakistan in 1986. She was married to a man from a land-owning family of agriculturists in 1987.

``An arranged marriage was the price in personal choice I had to pay for the political path my life had taken,'' she wrote in her autobiography. ``My own parents had married for love and I had grown up believing the day would come when I would fall in love and marry a man of my own choosing.''

Zia ul-Haq's dictatorship ended when he was killed in a plane crash in 1988. Her government was dismissed in 1990. She won a second term in 1993 and was dismissed once again on charges of corruption in 1996.

Managed Party

She lived in Dubai and London since 1999 after being charged in Pakistan with taking kickbacks on state contracts. She wasn't convicted on the charges. While outside Pakistan, she spent time lecturing at universities and think-tanks around the world. She also remotely managed her party.

Zardari, Bhutto's husband and a member of the senate, also spent over eight years in jail on 18 corruption cases. He was released in 2004 without any convictions.

Bhutto flew back to Pakistan after President Pervez Musharraf, 64, gave her amnesty on the corruption charges and agreed to give up control of the military by Nov. 15. In return, Bhutto didn't object to him being re-elected president by parliament and he won another five-year term.

Vowed to Campaign

The former premier had said she would limit mass election rallies and campaign by telephone to avoid a repeat of the Oct. 19 terrorist attacks.

``We do not want to endanger our leadership unnecessarily, and we certainly don't want to risk potential mass murder of my supporters,'' Bhutto wrote in the Wall Street Journal on Oct. 23. ``If we don't campaign, the terrorists have won and democracy is set back further. If we do campaign, we risk violence. It is an extraordinary dilemma.''

The U.S. backed a partnership between Bhutto and Musharraf. President George W. Bush banked on the relationship to return stability to a nuclear-armed country that, according to U.S. intelligence reports and officials, is failing to combat a growing Islamist threat.

``Bhutto symbolizes everything that's anathema to the extremists,'' Lisa Curtis, senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, said in a telephone interview. ``They want a Taliban-like theocratic state in Pakistan and she stands for democracy, modernity and change.''

Bhutto's moderate view of Islam and close contacts with the Bush administration made her a potential target for extremists in the world's largest Muslim nation after Indonesia. Islamic militants had threatened to assassinate Bhutto on her return from exile.

`A Symbol'

``I know that I am a symbol of what the so-called Jihadists, Taliban and al-Qaeda, most fear,'' she wrote. ``I am a female political leader fighting to bring modernity, communication, education and technology to Pakistan.''

The twin bombings on her return to Pakistan in October also injured more than 500 people in the deadliest attacks since Musharraf took power in a coup in 1999.

Musharraf had been informed that three people may be behind the attempts to kill her, Bhutto told reporters on Oct. 22, without identifying them.

``We will not be intimidated,'' she told reporters at her Karachi residence, Bilawal House. ``Despite the heavy loss we incurred, we will continue.''

`Al-Qaeda'

Bhutto received a letter from ``friends of al-Qaeda'' on Oct. 23, threatening more suicide attacks, possibly using women bombers, her lawyer Farooq Naik said. Bhutto also said her houses in Karachi and Larkana in the southern province of Sindh were under threat.

Musharraf imposed emergency rule in Pakistan on Nov. 3 as the Supreme Court neared a decision on the legality of his re- election as head of state while also serving as army chief.

Bhutto called Musharraf's decision to suspend the constitution and impose emergency a mini martial law and said it jeopardized her power-sharing talks with the army ruler.

Brian Wilson Gets Honored

20071225ho_brian_wilson1_500

Tonight is the Kennedy Center Honors on CBS, and Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys finally gets his medal.

In an interview before the ceremony, he discussed his favorite version of "God Only Knows," the "Beatle rivalry" how there will be no more Beach Boys and more.

There was a White House dinner, the ceremony and a chance to mingle with others.

"Itzhak Perlman told me that every 250 years, someone special comes along," Wilson said. "Before, it was Beethoven and now it's me."

At first, Wilson's music was confined to teens - fun stuff to hear while driving cars or watching girls. That has changed, now that his generation is in charge.

One sign came with "California Girls." President Bush, like others in the crowd, clapped and swayed. "He was crying," Wilson said.

That's logical. George W. Bush, 61, grew up in an era with music from Wilson, 65.

So did others. When Wilson's "Love and Mercy" was performed by Libra (a boys' choir), Diana Ross, 63, cried.

She was an honoree, along with Steve Martin, 62; director Martin Scorsese, 65; pianist Leon Fleisher, 79; and Wilson.

NORAD Santa Tracker- Santa Rader


Santa Tracking Control Center

NORAD has started their annual tracking of Santa Claus as he makes his way around the world (his current location is Aqtobe, Kazakhstan). This year NORAD is working with Google, tracking Santa using Google Earth and using special Santa Cams to upload videos of his travels to the NORAD Tracks Santa YouTube channel. For ongoing updates on Santa’s location, see the NORAD Tracks Santa website.

The NORAD Tracks Santa (NTS) program has been around for a long time, since 1955 to be exact! We believe that Santa Claus is alive and well in the hearts of people throughout the world.

NORAD uses four high-tech systems to track Santa - radar, satellites, Santa Cams and jet fighter aircraft.

Detecting Santa all starts with the NORAD radar system called the North Warning System. This powerful radar system has 47 installations strung across the northern border of North America. NORAD makes a point of checking the radar closely for indications of Santa Claus leaving the North Pole on Christmas Eve.


Beginning at 2:00 am MTN on Christmas Eve, you can track Santa Live as he makes his historical journey around the world!

This is exciting, as Santa travels fast and NORAD Santa Cams take photos of Santa and his reindeer!

Download Google Earth in preparation for tracking Santa in 3D on Christmas Eve.

It is that time of the year when we want to wish our loved ones and celebrate the joys of the season. It is not always possible to wish your loved ones personally. Today technology is so much more advanced that you can send them your love by spending less than 5 minutes using tools online.

Sending snail mail cards is losing its way just like sending letters did. Just like email which replaced the letters and chatting which replaced the regular phone calls, eCards too will eventually take over the snail mail cards that you send.

To keep yourself well prepared for the season we will look at the top sites that allow you to send Christmas eCards without having to spend a penny. And you do not have to do it just before the Christmas or New Year’s you can schedule your eCards to be sent on a future date too. So no more postal delays anymore everything will be delivered on time.

All of these e-Greeting sites we will look at allow you to personalize each of the cards you want to send out with the receivers name, your own name. A personal message to tell them what you feel. You can also send the same card to multiple recipients.

Christmas eGreetings

As the name suggests Christmas eGreetings is a site specifically dedicated to Christmas. They have a lot of different categories which spoil you for choices. Some of the categories includes Christmas Carols, Christmas Decorations, Christmas Pranks and much more.

123 Greetings

123 Greetings is probably one of the oldest sites I have used and also provides you with a lot of categories. They have specific categories for friends, families, business and religious e-Greetings. They have also newly launched their beautiful Christmas widget and facebook application.

In addition to that they also have a special section where they have e-Greetings where you can send out invitations for your get together and Christmas parties.

American Greetings

American Greetings is one of the most popular eCards site I have known and they are the most popular because of the innovations they have brought into personalizing your eCards.

They have some very cool features where you can add your photos and voice to the eCards which will add a more personalized touch to them. On the Flip side most of them are paid options. But you can still use most of the free eCards from them to send your wishes to your loved ones.

Pangolins-Wildlife at risk!!

What are Pangolins?

[Source found here]

Pangolins, also sometimes called scaly anteaters, are strange looking creatures covered with protective horny, overlapping scales. It is estimated that the Southern African Pangolin has been around for over 40 million years, adapting itself to the changing environment in order to survive.

One of the most frequently displaced facts about pangolins is that they are related to armadillos. But this is not true. Pangolins are in no way related to armadillos.

The Southern African species is one of a family of seven. It has siblings in
India, China, Malaysia and Africa (called the giant pangolin). Armadillos, on the other hand, are only found in the Americas.

The following types of pangolin are found in
Africa:
The giant pangolin (Manis gigantea) is mostly found in the moister areas of
Uganda, western Kenya and Tanzania. It is a very strong digger, enabling it to open termite mounds with ease. To do so, it rests its entire weight on its tail, tearing the earth apart with its clawed forefeet and kicking the broken clods away with its hind legs. It can also stand and walk upright on its hind legs.

The tree pangolin (Manis tricuspis) occurs in the same regions as the giant pangolin but prefers forests of secondary growth. Its hind legs have long toes with well-developed claws for climbing. The tail is longer than the body, with a fingerlike pad at the tip that functions as a "fifth limb" for climbing trees.

The scales are numerous and thin. The animal preens itself by scratching with the hind legs, lifting its scales so the claws can reach the skin. It also uses its tongue to remove insects from under the scales.

The common pangolin (Manis temminckii) has a small head and a long, broad tail. It prefers sandy soils and is found in woodlands and savannas, within reach of water.

The Southern African pangolin can be found in
Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and also in the northern regions of South Africa, where there is no frost and a lot of ants to eat.

Pangolins spend most of their time in burrows (often abandoned warthog burrows). They only come out at night. A pangolin only walks a few miles each night, but tends to use the same burrow for many months.

Because their poor sight, pangolins have to rely on their well-developed sense of scent to find their way. Contrary to popular belief, pangolins do not use their anal glands for scent-marking. Instead, they urinate on the sand, then roll around in it. The scent rubs off on the grass as they walk and helps them find their way back to the burrow.

Pangolins feed mostly on ants and termites, which are gathered up from the ground. Termite nests provide larger and more concentrated sources of food. Pangolins also dig insects from mounds with their claws. Because they are toothless, they use their extremely long tongues (up to 16 inches) to eat their prey.

Large salivary glands coat the long tongue with gummy mucus to which ants and termites stick. Their stomach is also specially adapted for grinding food. This process is helped along by the small stones and sand pangolins consume.

For protection, pangolins rely on their ability to roll themselves into a ball. This is done successfully for protection in the wild, since it takes considerable force to unroll them. The cutting action of their armor-plated scales, worked by powerful muscles, protect them, too, by inflicting serious wounds on anything inserted between them.

Leopards and other large animals such as hyenas occasionally prey on pangolins, but they are obviously well-protected from smaller predators.

These mechanisms are, however, not adequate protection against man because pangolins are also hunted by humans for their scales. The trade of these scales has taken off in
Asia, where the future of pangolins is in danger. Although it is not yet serious in Africa, there is enough hunting to cause concern.

Thailand saves pangolins bound for China restaurants

BANGKOK (AFP) — Thai Customs officers said Saturday they have rescued more than 100 pangolins and arrested three men attempting to smuggle the endangered animals to China, where they were destined for the cooking pot.

Customs officers Friday intercepted three pick-up trucks of pangolins, or scaly anteaters, which were to be smuggled across Laos to southwest China.

The pangolins, worth an estimated one million baht (29,400 dollars), were trapped in the Indonesian jungle and smuggled via Malaysia and southern Thailand.

"We investigated and found out that those pangolins are from Indonesia," Rakop Srisupaat, director of southern region Customs, told AFP by telephone.

All trade in Asian pangolins has been illegal since 2000. Their meat is regarded as a delicacy in China and their scales are believed to cure a wide range of ailments.

Rakop said the three suspects had declined to give details of who owned the pangolins but admitted they were hired to transport the scaly mammals.

They were charged with two counts of possessing and smuggling endangered wildlife, which carry a maximum 10 years in prison.

"I have instructed my legal officials to seriously prosecute them as their action is against the morals of Thai people," he said.

"The meat is for the cooking pot for restaurants and the scales are crushed for use in traditional Chinese medicine," he explained.

The pangolins, which were all alive despite being hidden under layers of coconuts, would be handed over to the Royal Forest Department to be nursed back to health before being released into an appropriate habitat in Thailand, he said.

Nicole Atkins-Neptune City

Singer-song writer Nicole Atkins, 27, New Jersey, has taken inspiration from her home that she knows best, for her debut album ‘Neptune City’. "Growing up around here and everything being decrepit, that’s what feels like home," Nicole Atkins explains in this exclusive video.

According to Upstage Magazine, part of Nicole's appeal lies in the contrasts she exudes. If you've heard her music or seen her onstage, and then you meet her in person, it's hard to believe that rich, velvety voice belongs to such a small woman with the girlish, sometimes even giggly, speaking voice. But her winsomeness is balanced with a sense of musical smarts honed by several years of working in the music business before she turned to performing as her true calling. And for someone so talented, she has her feet planted firmly on the ground, and is just about as humble and charming as can be.

As per ACED Magazine, here is the interview with Nicole Atkins:

Q: How would you describe the sound of the new record Neptune City, apart from your previous work?

Nicole Atkins: Well, for Neptune City, I actually had a budget, so instead of getting string sounds off of a mini Casio from the 80s, we had real bona fide instruments. It was also great to be able to work out all the songs and record them live with a big band everyday in a studio, instead of tracking layers in my folks living room bar with my grandfather constantly walking in. more..

Tips'n'Tricks of Nokia

I accept no responsibility of any kind for damage done to your phone whilst trying these tricks. I have included this information for educational purposes only.

Below are various TIPSnTRICKS based on the Nokia mobile phones. Different ones will work for different models, but most of them will work for all models.

To check the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) Type-

*#06#

Information you get from the IMEI-

XXXXXX XX XXXXXX X

TAC FAC SNR SP

TAC = Type approval code

FAC = Final assembly code

SNR = Serial number

SP = Spare

To check the phones Software revision type-

*#0000#

Information you get from the Software revision-

V 05.31

18-02-99

NSE-3

1ST Line = Software revision

2ND Line = The date of the software release

3RD Line = Phone type

To enter the service menu type-

*#92702689# (*#WAR0ANTY#)

Serial number (IMEI)

Production date (MM/YY)

Purchase date (MM/YY) You can only enter the date once.

Date of last repair (0000=No repair)

Transfer user data to another Nokia phone via Infra-Red

Clock Stopping

To check weather your SIM Card supports clock stopping type-

Please not this is not for free calls. This feature is to check weather your sim card supports "Clock Stopping". If your sim does support it, your phone will consume less battery power than if it didn't support it.

*#746025625# (*#SIM0CLOCK#)

Revealing the Headphone and Car-Kit menus

Please note that if you do these next tricks, the new menus can't be erased without restoring the factory default settings. To do these tricks you need to short-circuit the pins on the bottom of the phone next to where you plug in you charger.

1. To activate the "Headset" menu, you need to short-circuit pins "3" and "4". After a short time the word "Headset" will be shown in the display. Menu 3-6 is now enabled.

2. To activate the "Car" menu, you need to short-circuit pins "4" and "5". After a short time the word "Car" will be shown in the display. Menu 3-7 is now enabled.

THE REBOOT TRICK

This should work on all software versions of the 6110.

1. Go to the Calendar (Menu-8)

2. Make a note or reminder.

3. Enter some text into the edit box.

4. Hold "Clear" until the whole text is cleared, then press "Back".

5. Press "0". The main screen will now be showing but a space appears on the screen. (you can't see it)

6. Enter 4 digits (e.g. 1234).

7. Use the down arrow to move the cursor to the left side of the numbers and the space (Down arrow twice).

8. Now enter 6 digits and press the call button.

Wait for a few seconds, the screen should start to flash and reboots. It should alsowork on other menus like the "Profiles" menu.

EFR CALL QUALITY

To activate EFR (Enhanced Full Rate) Enter the code-

*3370#

This improves call quality but decreases batterylife by about 5%

To deactivate it, Enter the code-

#3370#

THE JAMES BOND TRICK

If you short-circuit theleft middle and right pins on the bottom of the phone with all connections touching each other, the Nokia software hangs! The profile "Headset" will be activated. Before you do this just activate the "Automatic Answer" in the headset profile and set the ringing volume to "Mute". Now you can use your phone for checking out what people are talking about in a room. Just place it under a table in a room and call it. The phone receives the call without ringing and you can listen to what people are saying.

NETWORK MONITOR

There is a hidden menu inside your Nokia phone. If you want to activate it, you'll have to re-program some chips inside of your phone.

Check your software version. You can only continue if you have v4.33, v4.73 or v5.24.

Take apart the phone.

De-solder the EEPROM (ATMEL AT 24C64).

Read out the data with an EEPROM programmer and save it to a file (Backup).

If you have v.33 or v4.73, change the address "03B8" from "00" to "FF".

If you have v5.24 then change the address "0378" from "00" to "FF".

Write the new data to the EEPROM and solder it back to the phone,

Power on your phone and you should have "Netmonitor" enabled.

The Network Monitor gives you the following information.

Carrier number

MS RX Level in DBM

Received signal quality

MS TX power level

C1 (Path loss criterion, used for cell selection and reselection). The range is -99 to 99.

RTL (Radio link timeout).

Timeslot

Indication of the transmitter status

Information on the Network parameters.

TMSI (Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity).

Cell identification (Cell ID, Number of cells being used).

MCC (Mobile country code)

MCN (Mobile network code)

LAC (Location area code)

Ciphering (On/Off)

Hopping (On/Off)

DTX (On/Off)

Discard cell barred information.

CHECK SIM-LOCK

Note - If you bought your Nokia on UK Vodafone or UK Cellnet you do not need to check this because they both transmit on GSM900, and they don't lock the phones. However if you bought your phone on UK Orange or UK One2one your phone may be blocked. The reason is that they both transmitt on GSM1800. To make a call on GSM1800 you need what is known as a "Dual band" phone. A dual band phone is able to transmit on both GSM900 and GSM1800, so they lock the phones so you can't use it with any other network simcard. If you find that your phone is locked you can try different software to unlock it. (I havn't found one that works yet), or you can ask your service provider who will gladly exchange the 10 digit code for about £35.

This is how to check the status of the 4 different locks. Also don't try entering the wrong number, because after 3 times it will block the phone for good.

There are 4 different locks on your Nokia phone.

COUNTRY-LOCK

NETWORK-LOCK

PROVIDER-LOCK

SIMCARD-LOCK

The code to read out the sim-lock status of your phone is

#PW+(MASTERCODE)+(Y)#

# = DOUBLE-CROSS

W = PRESS "*" THREE TIMES

P = PRESS "*" FOUR TIMES

+ = PRESS "*" TWO TIMES

MASTERCODE = 1234567890

Y = NUMBER 1 TO 4

The master code is a secret code. The code has 10 digits, To read out the sim-lock status you can enter every combination you want!

"Y" Shows the status of the network-lock. Here you can enter a number from "1" to "4". The "4" is for the sim-card lock.

SIM-LOCK CHECKS

#PW+1234567890+1# = GIVES PROVIDER-LOCK STATUS

#PW+1234567890+2# = GIVES NETWORK-LOCK STATUS

#PW+1234567890+3# = GIVES COUNTRY-LOCK STATUS

#PW+1234567890+4# = GIVES SIM-CARD-LOCK STATUS.

VODAFONE "PAY AS U TALK"

If you are on the Vodafone pay as you talk service within the UK, you can check the balance of your friends "Pay as you talk" phone without them even knowing.

What you need to do is very simple indeed, just dial "1345" from your phone. You will then be asked to enter your telephone number. Enter the number of your friends phone, and it tells you how much credit they have left and how many days are remaining.

Remember that both phones need to be on the Vodafone "Pay as you talk" service.

WILDFIRE (NEW ORANGE VOICE MAIL)

Say "Do me a favor" in the main menu (when Wildfire first answers) and she will reply "What kind of favour?". You then appear to have two options:

I'm depressed!

Saying this phrase will make Wildfire issue one of several witty repartees designed to cheer you up. My favorite so far is the one where she plays you an excerpt from a William Shatner album (who played T J Hooker in the high adventure series of the same name!)

What does a cow say?

When you ask this, you hear a cow say MOOOOO. This is very short but funny. Once in a while, when you say this command you will get a VERY FUNNY reply. You know you have it when Wildfire says "Here's what a mad cow says"

The best thing about this Do me a favor menu in my opinion, is that you can get Wildfire on the line whilst you are speaking to a friend, and both you and your friend hear Wildfire talking :) Of course there is no real use for this menu, but it is a lot of fun and will amaze your friends!

Thanks to SMI-GROUP for this one.

These codes has been tested with version FLD_2C6 G60SB03X of Samsung SGH-600
