Julian Beever is an English artist who’s famous for his art on the pavements of England , France , Germany , USA , Australia and Belgium . It’s particularity because Beever gives to his drawings an anamorphous, his images are drawn completely diforms which give a 3D image when viewing on the right angle.
Cigarette…contains this much stuff
Nicotine is a powerful insecticide and poisonous for the nervous systems. Furthermore, there is enough (50 mg) in four cigarettes to kill a man in just a few minutes if it were injected directly into the bloodstream. Indeed, fatalities have occurred with children after they had swallowed cigarettes or cigarette butts.
When diluted in smoke, nicotine reaches the brain in just seven seconds, it stimulates the brain cells and then blocks the nervous impulse. This is where addiction to tobacco arises. Nicotine also causes accelerated heart rate, but at the same time it leads to contracting and hardening of the arteries: the heart pumps more but receives less blood. The result is twice as many coronary attacks. Nicotine thus also increases the consumption of lipids (which is why it has a weight-loss effect) and induces temporary hyperglycaemia (hence the appetite suppressing effect).
Carbon monoxide (CO)
This is the asphyxiating gas produced by cars, which makes up 1.5% of exhaust fumes. But smokers inhaling cigarette smoke breathe in 3.2% carbon monoxide – and directly from the source.
Oxygen is mostly transported in blood by haemoglobin. When we smoke, however, the carbon monoxide attaches itself to the haemoglobin 203 times more quickly than oxygen does, thereby displacing the oxygen; this in turn asphyxiates the organism. This causes the following cardiovascular complaints: narrowing of the arteries, blood clots, arteritis, gangrene, heart attack, etc. . . .. but also a loss of reflexes and visual and mental problems. It takes between six and 24 hours for the carbon monoxide to leave the blood system.
These substances paralyse and then destroy the cilia of the bronchial tubes, responsible for filtering and cleaning the lungs. They slow down respiratory output and irritate the mucus membranes, causing coughs, infections and chronic bronchitis.
As the cilia are blocked (see paragraph above), the tars in the cigarette smoke are deposited and collect on the walls of the respiratory tract and the lungs, and cause them to turn black. So, just because a smoker is not coughing, it doesn’t mean that he or she is healthy! And this fact merely serves to pour water on one of the most common and poorest excuses given by smokers. The carcinogenic action of the tars is well known: they are responsible for 95% of lung cancers. It takes two days at least after cessation of smoking for the cilia to start functioning properly again, albeit only gradually. By smoking one packet of cigarettes every day, a smoker is pouring a cupful of these tars into his or her lungs every year (225 grams on average)!
Chemistry of Tobacco Smoke
No less than 4000 irritating, suffocating, dissolving, inflammable, toxic, poisonous, carcinogenic gases and substances and even radioactive compounds (nickel, polonium, plutonium, etc.) have been identified in tobacco smoke. Some of these are listed hereafter: Benzopyrene, dibenzopyrene, benzene, isoprene, toluene (hydorcarbons); naphthylamines; nickel, polonium, plutonium, arsenic, cadmium (metallic constituents); carbon dioxide, methane, ammonia, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, hydrogen sulphide (gases); methyl alcohol, éthanol, glycerol or glycerine, glycol (alcohols and esters); acetaldehyde, acrolein, acetone (aldehydes and ketones); cyanhydric or prussic acid, carboxyl derivatives (acids); chrysene, pyrrolidine, nicoteine, nicotinine, nicoteline, nornicotine, nitrosamines (alkaloids or bases); cresol (phenols), etc.

This is the only place in the world where one can enjoy skiing when outside temperature in peak summer is plus 48 Deg C !!!!
This photo attached which shows construction phase as well. Money talks too much here & you will agree after seeing this!!!!!
The largest Snowdome in the world, containing the world's third largest Indoor Ski Slope, has opened in the Gulf Emirate of Dubai.
Ski Dubai, 85m high by 80m wide, has to cope with average outside winter temperatures of 25C and summer temperatures soaring above 40C.
The temperature inside is maintained at -1 or -2C. Arabs who prefer to wear their traditional kandouras can hire black, knee-length padded coats.
The 22,500sq/m of piste are covered with 6,000 metric tons of manufactured snow all year round. The $272m resort is the latest project in the emirate which is seeking to become a major tourism hub.
“Snow in the desert is such a Unique experience for locals who have never seen snow,” said Ski Dubai’s chief executive, Phil Taylor.

Steve Woznaik(sitting) and Steve Jobs of APPLE Computers. He was three months late in filing a name for the business because he didn’t get any better name for his new company. So one day he told to the staff: “If I’ll not get better name by 5 o’clcok today, our company’s name will be anything he likes…” so at 5 o’clcok nobody comeup with better name, and he was eating APPLE that time… so he keep the name of the company ‘Apple Computers’
Ken Thompson (L)and Dennis Ritchie(R) ,creators of UNIX. Dennis Ritchie improved on the B programming language and called it ‘New B’. B was created by Ken Thompson as a revision of the Bon programming language (named after his wife Bonnie) He later called it C.
Gordon Moore(L) and Bob Noyce(R) ,founders of Intel. Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company ‘Moore Noyce’. But that was already trademarked by a hotel chain… So they had to settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics… INTEL
Linus Torvalds of Linux Operating System Linus Torvalds originally used the Minix OS on his system which he replaced by his OS. Hence the working name was Linux (Linus’ Minix). He thought the name to be too egotistical and planned to name it Freax (free + freak + x). His friend Ari Lemmk encouraged Linus to upload it to a network so it could be easily downloaded.
Ari gave Linus a directory called linux on his FTP server, as he did not like the name Freax.
Linus like that directory name and he kept the name of his new OS to LINUX…
AND THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN WHEN SUPERHIT SHOLEY WAS STARTED……
They were looking at ashrani when he was doing practice first time with his funny Jailer’s dress… ALONE on one rock…

Bill Hewlett(L) and Dave Packard(R) of HP. Behind them in the picture is the famous HP Garage. Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett. And the winner was NOT Bill… the winner was Dave.
Larry Page(L) and Sergey Brin(R), founders of Google. Google was originally named ‘Googol’. After founders (Stanford graduates) Sergey Brin and Larry Page presented their project to an angel investor… they received a cheque made out to ‘Google’ !…
So they kept name as GOOGLE
Andreas Bechtolsheim , Bill Joy, Scott Mc Nealy and Vinod Khosla of SUN(StanfordUniversity Network) MicroSystems.
Founded by four StanfordUniversity buddies. Andreas Bechtolsheim built a microcomputer; Vinod Khosla recruited him;
Scott McNealy to manufacture computers based on it; and Bill Joy to develop a UNIX-based OS for the computer… SUN is the acronym for Stanford University Network .
Picture taken when INFY was started. This picture was found in the album of the clerk who took this picture…
The picture was with that clerk only because it was his birthday and he just told everyone to stand together at one place to take a pic. He borrow a camera from his friend and as he can not tell any of his boss to take pic, so he took pic by himself… even it was his birthday.
