The Right Brain vs Left Brain test ... do you see the dancer turning clockwise or anti-clockwise?

If clockwise, then you use more of the right side of the brain and vice versa.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

Kochi IPL: sources indicate that a solution has finally been reached

Kochi IPL: sources indicate that a solution has finally been reached.It is not yet end game for the Kochi IPL team. With just four days before the final deadline given to the franchisee owners by the IPL Governing Council, sources indicate that a solution has finally been reached.

One senior member of the franchisee yesterday told Emirates 24|7 that the disputes have almost been resolved. “We are confident that we will present a united front and IPL Kochi will indeed feature in the next edition of the tournament," said the source.

Earlier during the day the first hint of a probable resolution of the disputes came from a Shashi Tharoor tweet.

“All is not lost for Kerala IPL team. Those involved appear to be seriously engaged in resolving their differences. Hope so!” said India’s former minister of State for External Affairs, who had to resign from his ministerial position following disclosures that his then girlfriend Sunanda Pushkar, whom he married later, was offered a sweat equity in the franchisee.

The warring and factionalism within the Kochi franchisee had reached such a hopeless level that the governing council had even started preparations to induct a new team in place of Kochi.

The Kochi franchisee was asked by the governing council to resolve their differences before November 27 and according to recent reports the IPL governing council had even begun preparations to invite tenders for a new franchise.

Kochi along with Pune entered the IPL in April following an auction bringing the total number of teams to be playing in the fourth edition of the IPL in 2011 to eight.

Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab have been removed from the list following alleged irregularities.

Amazing!!! Chimpanzee Problem Solving by Cooperation

A brief, interesting clip from National Geographic's "Ape Genius" documentary, demonstrating problem solving skills in chimpanzees, by requesting cooperation.

Also shows chimpanzees providing assistance to humans, by noticing assistance is needed, and retrieving out of reach objects for their human companions.

As time goes on, it becomes more and more obvious that the great apes are our evolutionary cousins. I would hope everyone viewing this would be able to share in my astonishment and awe at the brilliance displayed by these amazing creatures.

Unbelievable 3D in holographic sheets

Wisdom:Keep this in mind the next time you are about to repeat a rumour or spread gossip

Got it as Email. Food for Thought

In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom.

One day an acquaintance ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about Diogenes?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied, "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test."
'Triple filter?" asked the acquaintance.

"That's right," Socrates continued, "Before you talk to me about Diogenes let's take a moment to filter what you're going to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

"No," the man said, "Actually I just heard about it."

"All right," said Socrates, "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to tell me about Diogenes something good?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "You want to tell me something about Diogenes that may be bad, even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass the test though, because there is a third filter, the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about Diogenes going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "If what you want to tell me is neither True nor Good nor even useful, why tell it to me or anyone at all?"

The man was bewildered and ashamed. This is an example of why Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem.

How To Fold a T-Shirt in Two Seconds

To complete this How-To you will need:

A T-shirt
A flat surface

Step 1: Lay the shirt on a table

Lay your shirt down sideways and faceup on the table so that the neck is to your right.

Step 2: Pinch the shirt in two places

With your right hand, pinch the shirt at the shoulder, halfway between the sleeve and neckline farthest away from you; with your other hand, pinch the shirt halfway down from the first pinch.

Tip: Make sure you're gripping both the top and bottom layers of the shirt.

Step 3: Cross your hands

While pinching the two points, cross your right hand over your left hand, bringing the shoulder to the shirt's bottom hem on the side farthest away from you. Without letting go of the first pinch of material, grab the hem too.

Step 4: Lift the shirt

Lift the shirt so that it's hanging in front of you. Without letting go of the shirt, uncross your arms and pull the fold taut as you do.

Step 5: Drape to finish

Introducing the next generation keyboard - The 8pen

The 8pen allows for the replacement of the conventional keyboard on all devices capable of detecting gestures, in particular mobile phones with touch screens, modern remote controls or game controllers. Its advantage lies mainly in the fact that it is possible to input text faster than using conventional layouts on small devices, while at the same time mimicking human hand-writing. Moreover, the simplicity of the gestures involved greatly reduces the problem of mistyping that frequently occurs with the classical layout due to the lack of space. For the same reason, it is possible to write without viewing, as only the central region is needed as a reference for starting and ending a movement.

A Heart Touching Story

Got it as Email
Must read this . Too touching

I was walking around in a Big Bazar store making shopping, when I saw a Cashier talking to a boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old.

The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll. Then the little boy turned to me and asked: ''Uncle, are you sure I don't have enough money?''

I counted his cash and replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy the doll , my dear.'' The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.

Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to. 'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much. I wanted to Gift her for her BIRTHDAY.

I have to give the doll to my mummy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.' His eyes were so sad while saying this. 'My Sister has gone to be with God .. Daddy says that Mummy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister.''

My heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up at me and said: 'I told daddy to tell mummy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.' Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me 'I want mummy to take my picture with her so my sister won't forget me.' 'I love my mummy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.' Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly.

I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. 'Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?''

'OK' he said, 'I hope I do have enough.' I added some of my money to his with out him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money.

The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money!'

Then he looked at me and added, 'I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mummy could give It to my sister. He heard me!'' 'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mummy, but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose. My mommy loves white roses.'

I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started. I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind. Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma. Was this the family of the little boy?

Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the newspaper that the young woman had passed away.. I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial. She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed for ever.

The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

Sunil Gavaskar and Kochi IPL

Sunil Gavaskar and Kochi IPLFinally, it's out in the open. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar is the 'big player' who had helped the Kochi franchise pulls off a stunning coup in the controversial Indian Premier League auction.

Rendezvous Sports World Pvt Ltd (RSWPL), which got a bunch of disparate investors together and masterminded the entire exercise, confirmed this to TOI on Monday.

The Gaikwad family, which owns RSWPL and commands 25% free equity and 1% paid equity in the team, said: "We have Gavaskar's support and full backing. It was under his guidance that we had decided to get into this."

RSWPL chairman Shailendra Gaikwad's father, Kisan Gaikwad, said Gavaskar would look after the team's cricketing operations. It is also learnt that the player will get a stake in the franchise.

TOI, it may be recalled, had revealed how a couple of very 'big players' - including a current star - had either already worked with the franchise or had promised to do so eventually.

Later in the night, Gavaskar explained to TOI that he had indeed been approached by the Gaikwads, as also the other members of the consortium. "They have asked me, individually and collectively, to come in for the cricketing part of the team. I will take a call once the internal issues are resolved," he said in an e-mail reply. Gavaskar is on a brief trip to Dubai.

The IPL governing council is expected to meet in two days to decide the fate of the franchise which is struggling with internal disputes.

With this revelation, the Gaikwads can now hope to fight for the team's survival, and their own, from a position of strength.

The Kochi franchise had been given 10 days to resolve its internal differences and form a company or face the axe like Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab.

The key investors here, including owners of Anchor Earth and Parinee builders, and RSWPL have been unable to sort out issues over free equity and overall control of the team.

Gavaskar had recently quit the IPL governing council over suggestions that he was not amenable to certain high-profile officials within the board. As the battle for survival enters its final leg, he might have agreed to come out in the open to try and save the team.

The franchise managed to win a few days' grace time by submitting a reply to the board's showcause notice. The Gaikwad camp claimed it was not aware of the arrangement suggested by the investors.

"They are submitting all kinds of documents without even telling us. They anyway can't change the shareholding pattern. We hope the BCCI sticks to the stand that has seen both RR and Kings XI thrown out of the IPL," said Kisan Gaikwad.

Kisan, a senior bureaucrat, also sought to clarify certain stories doing the rounds. "My father is a freedom fighter. It hurts to hear that we have a tainted background. They have also claimed that my son Ravi (Shailendra's brother) has been suspended. I would like to say that he is still in the job."

Maruti Suzuki Kizashi. Rocking Design!

Maruti Suzuki Kizashi launch in November 2010
kizashi maruti suzuki Wallpapers

Maruti Suzuki Kizashi will be auto maker’s first and probably the most courageous attempt to debut into the country’s mid sized sedan market.

The new car Maruti Kizashi will come with an approximate price tag of Rs. 18 lac and is pitted against Honda Civic, the much popular and successful mid sized sedan in the country. Kizashi which was launched in the US and Japan in 2009 was displayed at the Auto Expo in Delhi in 2010 where company announced its plans to launch it inIndia . The sedan is expected to create a niche for itself among the big players and looks, price and performance will decide that for it. Today customers have a wide choice in the C/D segment and to make them shift towards Maruti will be a gigantic task for the automaker.

Kizashi is the first car by Maruti Suzuki that comes in a price bracket of Rs. 15-18 lac and to justify the expensive price tag Maruti needs to show a lot of creativity with the car in terms of muscle, style and looks to be able to hit the right cord with the Indian luxury car customers. Kizashi features a 2400cc engine with a peak power of 131 KW @6500 rpm and maximum torque of 230@ 4000 rpm. The vehicle has 6-speed manual transmission and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 8.0 seconds. The sedan boasts of a well sculpted body that oozes muscularity. It is the perfect combination of Japanese craftsmanship and European looks.

The interior of Kizashi are equally stylish and feature rich. It has a spacious cabin and comes with leather seats. The instrument panel is equipped with Bluetooth and iPod connect. The safety features include an exceptionally rigid unibody, 6 airbags and four wheel disc brakes.

It remains to be seen that whether Kizashi makes it big at the D segment as it did for the hatchbacks and compact cars in India or slips into the segment of low cost bigger sedan. Kizashi is definitely a make or break situation for Maruti in the mid size sedan segment.

Mac os x 10.7 Lion
As promised, Apple today offered a preview of Mac OS X 10.7, a.k.a "Lion," which Steve Jobs says has been inspired by the company's efforts with iOS. That inspiration has resulted in an expanded use of multitouch gestures (but not on a vertical screen), an emphasis on iPad-like full screen applications, and -- here's the big one -- an App Store for OS X (which will also be coming to Snow Leopard). Also new is the Launchpad application launcher, which will give you an iPad-like grid of icons and let you create iOS-style folders for applications, and the all-new Mission Control, which offers a unified view of all your open windows, open apps, and your dock. No exact launch date just yet, but Apple says Lion will roll out sometime in the summer of 2011 -- head on past the break for the full press release.

Kochi IPL team is ready is to meet deadline October 21.

Kochi IPL team ready for DLF IPL season 4The Kochi IPL franchise might stay in the multi-million dollar T20 league, after all.

With just two days to go for complying with the BCCI’s demand of incorporating a joint venture company to run the franchise, the promoters, Rendezvous Sports World Pvt Ltd, and the investors would be holding a meeting here on Tuesday to thrash out their differences and fulfil the terms and conditions of the Franchise Agreement.

“The indications are positive,” said Satyajitsinh Gaikwad, chief executive officer of RSW, on the eve of the meeting.

It’s not clear what kind of truce will take place, but Gaikwad suggested that a solution would be worked out in time to meet the BCCI’s deadline of October 21.

The faction-ridden consortium was served a show-cause notice for failing to form a legal entity on October 10 by the IPL Governing Council which scrapped Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab the same day.

The crux of the problem for Kochi was the struggle to wrest control between RSW and the rest of the investors — which included corporate firms Anchor Earth, Parinee Developers, Rosy Blue and Film Wave, and an individual, Vivek Venugopal.

Shashi Tharoor: Why nations should pursue "soft" power

India is fast becoming a superpower, says Shashi Tharoor -- not just through trade and politics, but through "soft" power, its ability to share its culture with the world through food, music, technology, Bollywood. He argues that in the long run it's not the size of the army that matters as much as a country's ability to influence the world's hearts and minds.

The helicopter service which will help tourist to fly to pilgrimage places and tourist spots in Kerala was launched by Cochin International Airport Ltd (“CIAL”), the airport company on 9th October. The helicopter services are to be provided by Bangalore based Bharath Airways Private Limited, who has 20 years of experience in helicopter service operations.
