The terrorists who attacked Mumbai came via sea routes from Saudi Arabia to Karachi via the Porbandar coast in Gujarat, and then headed to Pakistan to make their gateway. The terrorists, who set Mumbai on war overnight, came by boats.It is stated after LTTE, the LeT(Lashkar-e-Tayyaba) is the only terror organization in the Indian subcontinent that has got capacity to
carry out massive attacks. IF DREAMS COME TRUE, SO DO NIGHTMARES.....If peoples dream come true so do their nightmares. On November 26, when the terrorists unleashed worst-ever attacks on Mumbai which is not only the commercial capital of India but also the entertainment capital of South Asia. SECURITY AGENCIES BAFFLED......The unprecedented attack in Mumbai has left inelligece agencies baffled. The agencies suspect the role of suicide squads of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayabba with support from local outfits behind the terror attack. Though the LeT has denied its role in the mumbai terror attack, the involvement of a Pakistani hand was confirmed on Thursday with the arrest of a terrorist, Abu Ismail, by security agencies from the Oberoi Trident in Mumbai. Ismail belongs to Faridcot in Pakistan. According to security officials only LeT and Al Qaeda have the ability to train "Sucide squads" capable of carrying out terror operations of this kind.IF THIS IS INDIA 9/11...LET THEM FIGHT IT LIKE U.S.........The unprecedented terrorist assult on Mumbai which began late Wednesday and was still continuing is easily the deadliest such attack on the nation: no earlier incident quite equals this in savagery, intensity and the sense of fear it created. The nation of late witnessed a mutation of the species of terrorism, in that some Indian elements have adopted this mode to ventilate grievances, real or imaginary. But what has not changed over decades is the principal source of inspiration for an undeclared war on this nation. The spectacular naure of Wednesday's multiple strikes on India's commercial capital led a former high-ranking US official to describe it as "India's Nine-Eleven". There is truth in this, but there is also fundamental difference. America wasn't attacked by an immediate neighbour. Also, it possessed the ability to visit retribuion on those it suspected. India might not be in a position to do this for many reasons, including geopolitical considerations.....but India has to do some thing to ensure that it can also capable to act decisively against the international terrorist dens from where India is being regularly targeted.
"It's immoral, but the money makes it right," a convicted malware author famously said. Money now is the clear driver in cybercrime and there is a flourising underground economy -- security software firm Symantec, in a new report, estimates the value of totl advertised goods on underground economy servers to over $276 million. The firm tracked the servers between July
2007 and June 2008. It's no longer about a teenager hacking for an ego boost. Criminals are after your Credit Card related information like CVV number. The underground economy is geographycally diverse. it is a self sustaining system where tools that aid in fraud and theft can be purchased and the stolen information obtained can then be sold.Criminals range from
individuals to organized groups. The potential worth of all Credit Cards advertised during the study period ws estimated at a whooping $ 5.3 billlion. The Credit Card information category rnked the highest with 31 per cent of sale advertisements and 24 percent of requests, the report found.

The cost of living in the lunar world is prohibitive. A litre of bottled water, for instance, costs $ 50,000 as per Nasa estimates.
CHANDRAYAAN -1, India's maiden moon mission, may help bring down the cost of living as astrophysicists hope that the Indian Space Craft will provide vital clues to the presence of water there. The presense or otherwise of water will make or mar future manned missions to the moon, including building human colonies and launching pleasure jaunts.

Unhappy people watch significantly more television in their spare time, says a new study, which found that individuals who describe themselves as very happy spend most of their time reading and socializing.
TV doesn't really seem to satisfy people over the long haul the way that social involvement or reading a newspaper did.It's more passive and may provide escape - especially when the news is as depressing as the economy itself. The data suggest to us that the TV habit may offer short-run pleasure at the expense of long-term malaise.
The study showed that unhappy people watch an estimated 20 percent more television than very happy people.The unhappy people were also more likely to feel they have unwanted extra time on their hands (51 percent) compared to very happy people (19 percent) and to feel rushed for time (35 percent vs. 23 percent).
Talking about unhappy people's TV addiction to television University of Maryland sociologist Steven Martin and co-author of the study said:"Addictive activities produce momentary pleasure but long-term misery and regret.People most vulnerable to addiction tend to be socially or personally disadvantaged. For this kind of person, TV can become a kind of opiate in a way. It's habitual, and tuning in can be an easy way of tuning out.
The study appears in the December issue of the journal Social Indicators Research.
A simple yet cost effective way to reduce stress or anxiety is chewing sugarfree gum. Chewing gum increases alertness and improves performance while multi-tasking. Chewing gum may be associated with positive, relaxing social behaviours.
Moon Impact probe (MIP) onboard Chandrayaan-1 successfully ejected and landed on the lunar surface on Friday night. With the tricolour painted on its sides the probe marked India's Presence on the Moon and put India in the elite club of Russia, the U.S., Japan and Europeon space Agency, which have impacted probes on the Moon.
