Daylight saving and its effects on sleep

India doesn’t have daylight saving time. Thank God! If you live in U.S. or other countries (such as England and Australia) that follow daylight saving, you must be familiar with the weird feeling when the DST starts and ends. Today, daylight savings begin in U.S. Last year this time, I was in San Francisco. On March 14, 2011 (one day after the DST began) I saw a driver driving in opposite direction.

U.S. Congress is still debating whether to approve the bailout. Many banks are eagerly waiting for the free money. American President Bush warned the country about recession in his prime time television address to the nation. Even if warnings of economic catastrophe aren’t enough to win approval of a controversial $700 billion Wall Street bailout, the economy is not at risk of falling into a depression, most experts think so. Many experts think…

Barbarian in the bus

A sick fellow cuts the head of a young man and shows off the head proudly. It looks like an incident happened in the remote corner of a village in Bihar. But, it happened in Canada. The guy shown in the above picture stabbed the fellow passenger and cut his head off. Vince Weiguang Li, 40, of Edmonton, Alberta, killed 22 year old guy in the bus for no apparent reason.

Pull Them Up!

I have seen many U.S. teenagers exposing butts when they walk. Even some old guys don’t want to pull their pants up, they want to show what they got. Disgusting, isn’t it? Parents are not taking action to discipline their kids, so government is trying to do that. Florida government passed a bill that could mean suspensions for students with droopy pants. More details are here.

Eliot Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet in a Washington hotel room the night before Valentine’s Day with a prostitute. More details are here. Eliot Spitzer was tough, really tough. He wanted everyone to behave. I am surprised that he himself got in this mess.…

Cheating Mechanics

You might have encountered these guys all the time, especially in India. The mechanics tell you one thing, do something else. They charge for repairs that were not even needed. After all the money is spent, you might find out that they did a lousy job. One might think that these problems may not happen in countries like America, where all businesses are strictly regulated. It looks that America is not that different. Cheating mechanics are everywhere.

Malaysian referee pulls out red card, then a gun!

If you have a gun, you may likely to use it even if you don’t really intend to. That was one of the arguments by many anti-gun lobbyists in U.S. Their stand is vindicated in Malaysia. A Malaysian referee took out his gun and fired warning shots in the air after a local soccer match turned unruly following the suspension of a player, a newspaper said on Tuesday. The referee, who was also a policeman, ran to his patrol car to get his gun after players mobbed him for showing the red-card to one of them, the New Straits Times…
