NS cut by six months -from Straits Times

 

I think many Nsfs should be jumpin up and down with joy by now, celebrating the cut and plannin their leave earlier....

hmm..lets see...1..2..3...less than a 8months to go...=)

                   

The cuts, which will also apply to full-time national servicemen in the police and civil defence, are the first major changes to

NS duration since 1971, when training was reduced from 36 to 30 months for officers, and from 30 to 24 months for those below the rank of corporal.
 
Servicemen who enlisted between January 2002 and last month will get a two-month cut and complete their NS no earlier than the end of this month.
 
 
Getting a four-month reduction will be those who enlist between this month and November this year.
 
The full six-month reduction will be for all new recruits who enlist from December.
 
Servicemen who disrupt their training, usually for studies, will get the same cuts as others in the same batch,
when they return to complete their training.
 
There will be no change for those who already serve 24 months.(e unlucky few)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Russian erotica museum -from AFP-OFFBeat

SAINT PETERSBURG, Russia (AFP) - In a more innocent age, it was said that Gregory Efimovich Rasputin's legendary power over women was due to his piercing eyes.

But a new museum of erotica here suggests that the mad monk's charm may instead have been, ahem, concealed beneath his cassock.

Measuring 28.5 centimeters (about 11 inches) -- allowing for shrinkage caused by pickling -- Rasputin's penis displayed in a tall glass bottle is, to put it delicately, a big attraction at the museum.

Director Igor Knyazkin said he bought the object from a French antiquitarian for 8,000 dollars (6,600 euros), along with several of Rasputin's hand-written letters.

It was not known if he had a certificate of authenticity for such a remarkable piece.

Reputed both for his mysticism and his debauchery, Rasputin was a powerful influence at the court of the Romanov Tsars.

Concerned about his unusual hold over the Empress Alexandra, a group of aristocrats decided to kill him to save Russia.

They lured him to an assignation in 1916, fed him drugged cakes, shot him and finally killed him by wrapping him in a carpet and throwing him into the frozen Neva river.

The aura of sexual power and mysticism lives on. Some Russians think just by staring at the object, they can cure sexual impotence.

One visitor asked Knyazkin if this is true.

"Without a shadow of doubt," he replied with a smile.

Knyazkin, 37, a urologist and sexologist, set up the museum in the clinic he runs, partly with the aim of helping his patients overcome impotence. The atmosphere of the museum makes patients "more optimistic and relaxed," he said.

"The aim of the doctor is to free his patient from anxiety and fears. Men who come here are ill at ease because of their problems, and our light and happy atmosphere reassures them."

Haha....size does does ar?

Coffee
 
                                                                           
Does caffeine help in sporting/fitness activities?
Caffeine enhances performance in 2 ways:
 
*It helps with muscle contraction, increases the potential for fat-burning oderate intensity exercise and therefore used glycogen, which is another
source of energy for the body last.
*It affects the central nervous system in such a way that the mind has a reducd perception of the effort being put in by the body.
 
 
 
 
 
 
How do we keep track of how much caffeine we are consuming?
Here's as example: If a 70kg person consumes 3 cups of brewed coffee, his caffeine reading would be in the region of 3mg/kg body weight.
 
Apart from coffee, what else contains caffeine?
Many drinks contain it. A cup of tea contains 12-30mg.
A can of cola has 30mg.
A tube of sports gel, caffeinated, has 25-50mg.
A cup of brewed coffee which has 45-85mg.
 
Whats is the danger of overdoing it?
About 3 to 6 cups of freshly brewed coffee or 3-6mg/kg body weight for a 70kg person should be fine.
But this really depends on the individuals habitual caffeine intake.
for example if someone who only drinks 1 cup in the morning suddenly starts downing 6 cups before his morning run. he may experience the reverse side effects rather that the benefits.
 
The side effects of overdosing on caffeine include anxiety, jitters, insomnia, inability to focus, palpitations and stomach irritability.
Also risk of dehydration.
 
 
Durians
 

Durian prices are so low this season you can play like a pauper but eat like a king.

From a geylang to clementi, many stalls are selling good-grade durians at 50 cents each.

Two stalls at black 539. Bedok North Street have been slashed prices as low as 10 for $1.

 

Stall owners say the harvest for Malaysian durians, which are in season between May and July, is plentiful this year.

There are so many durians this year, we have to sell them cheap.

Says Mr Ken Lim, Manager of Chin Yong Fruits Trading in Sims Avenue.

Cheap does not mean dry, bland durians that taste like yesterday dirty socks. You can find top-grade varieties among the 50-cent heaps.

 

 

 

But you have to stiff out the top quality ones and open them yourself because stall assistants will open the more expensive varieties.

Still, durians lovers who dont mind a little do it yourself have not been deterred by putting their noses to the spikes.

 

Tips on choosing gd durians:

 

If you are buying 50-cent durians, which some stall owners will not open, you will need to know how to choose one yourself.

Follow these steps.

=Listen: Tap the spikes with the flat of a knife. A ripe fruit gives out a hollow sound.

=Touch: Give the fruit a few shakes. When the fruit is ripe, the seeds will move.

=Smell: Bring the fruit close to your nose and inhale. It should give off a strong smell.

 

 

Grades:
 

Malaysian durian farmers have classified the fruit into different grades, according to their taste and texture.

No one particular grade is best. Different types grade appeal to different tastes.

The main categories:

=D2: The fruit is long and irregular in shape. It is harder to open, as the inner shells tend to stick together. The meat is slightly pink and tastes a little bitter.

= D13: The fruit is smaller and rounder. The meat is orange in color and tastes sweet.

= D18: It has big, wide spikes. Its flesh is yellow and tastes sweet.

= D24: Its meat is yellow and tastes a little bitter. Its supply used to be so rare that only sultans in Malaysia could eat it. Now, it usually comes in large quantities when in season, and can be sold very cheaply.

= D101: The fruit has sharp, fine spikes. Its meat is yellow and tastes sweet.

= D666: Also known as mau shan wang(mountain king in Mandarin), its flesh is yellow and seeds are shriveled and small when eaten, it       

              tasted sweet at first and bitter later.

=XO: The shell is brown and thin. The meat is light yellow, soft in texture and tastes bitter. The seeds are small.
 
Some interestin stuff/grandmother tales abt durians:
-Washing yr hands with running water over a durian shell get rid of the smell of durian from ur fingers.
-Drinking salted water from a durian shell can eliminate the durian's "heatiness"

She And Her Cat: Their Standing Points (5min)
(a.k.a. Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko)
 
 
An earlier independent work by Shinkai Makoto, the creator of Hoshi no Koe.
Created in early summer 1999 using hand-drawn technique combined with 3D Software and AfterEffects for composition.
The whole volume is colorless in order to reduce the burden of machine and to speed up production process.
In this short animated work, Shinkai Makoto tried to convey a small warmth, vague lonesomeness of living, faint feeling into image and sound
 
One rainy spring day, She picked up Chobi, and he became Her cat.
He quickly grew to love Her because She was like a mother and a lover, kind and beautiful all at once.
As the seasons pass, both Chobi and She become closer to one another as they distance themselves from everything else.
