Baddest Cruise Ship in the World

Royal Caribbean’s latest cruise ship creation is the largest and most dramatic one yet. The Quantum of the Seas is designed to be the be all, end all of cruising opportunities, and with all of the amazing spaces and extraordinary implementations of technology it boasts, it just might be. From stunning décor and visual effects to awesome recreational spaces, this ship seriously has it all. Who would have imagined being able to roller-skate at sea, or crash about in bumper cars? Even if you had imagined it, it’s doubtful that you would have thought of ever experiencing the likes of sky diving aboard a cruise ship. The pool areas on board are practically as extensive as the ocean views, and speaking of views, this ship sports an amazing spherical observation platform that extends over the ocean below

One of the best parts about a cruise has to be the food, and this ship offers several fine and casual dining establishments. Whether you’re looking for a romantic and elegant evening of gourmet food, or you just want to grab a quick snack or a meal the kids will love, this ship has come prepared. Of course, the private areas of the ship are extremely important to each person’s cruise experience, and the staterooms of this ship are truly amazing. The suites especially are stunning, with their open, modern spaces and jaw-dropping views. Everything about this ship, from bow to stern is designed to impress and thrill, and all of these photos contest to how well this effort was brought to reality.

The enormity of the ship makes it look more like a floating city block than a cruise ship.

Help 8 Year old Aravind

Help 8 year old Aravind fight a blood disorder

Laxman Singh blinks at his unfamiliar surroundings. The clinically sterile surroundings in the hospital seem to disorient him. He isn't used to spending so much time in a hospital. However, now, he has no choice. He has to constantly accompany his 8 year old son, Aravind, who is battling interleukin 12 deficiency, a blood disorder.
A life of poverty

Laxman has only known poverty all his life. Hailing from Guwahati, Assam, Laxman and his wife are illiterate. “She can't count after 26”, says Laxman. With his wife as a housewife, Laxman is the sole breadwinner of the family.He does not have a permanent job. He ekes out a living for himself and his family by doing a number of odd jobs. “Over the years, I've lost count of the number of jobs I've held”, says Laxman, “I've grazed cows for the meagre sum of Rs. 50 a day. I've also worked as a peon in a school, where I earned Rs. 150 to ring the school bell.” After years of doing menial work, he started working in construction, where his job was to provide material for building roads. Working as a middleman, he thrived on commission.

Laxman's family includes him, his wife, and their 5 children. At 8 years of age and born twenty years after his parents' marriage, Aravind is the youngest. And he is also the one who has suffered the most.
Not a day when he was not ill

Since he was born, Laxman recalls Aravind as a weak child. He had a recurring cough and suffered from a fever that just would not go away. And it just got worse over the years.

His concerned parents have rushed the child to various hospitals, got him checked by various doctors. However, there has been no diagnosis. They have been to places like Cooch Behar and Siliguri to get him checked by doctors there, but to no avail. Temporary medication provided only so much relief. Desperate, the parents have tried Ayurvedic alternatives in Haridwar, but in vain. Little Aravind continued to be ill.

Finally, someone recommended getting Aravind checked at Apollo Hospital in Chennai. With enough money to last them only a few days in Chennai, the parents arrived at Apollo Hospital with Aravind. Here, he was seen by Dr. Revathi Raj. Aravind had to undergo a few tests to determine his condition.

The test results revealed that little Aravind was suffering from interleukin 12 deficiency. Interleukin 12 helps in cellular immune responses to pathogens. A deficiency indicates a high risk of infections. To add to his ailments,Aravind also suffers from recurring tuberculosis.

The only chance of Aravind recovering is with a stem cell transplant. With Dr. Raj's help, a German donor for Aravind has been found. However, there is a massive obstacle standing in the way of Aravind's treatment – finances.

How you can help

Laxman and his wife require Rs. 30 lakhs for their son's treatment. This is an amount they can't even think of being able to afford. Too weak to attend classes and with constant trips to Chennai, Aravind has dropped out of school. “I dropped out of school after the second standard”, says Laxman, sadly, “And the same thing is happening to my son.” The older daughters are studying in government schools. The future looks bleak for Laxman and his family. You can change that.

Supporting document

You can help Aravind receive the stem cell transplant he desperately requires. Contribute now and help the little boy live a life he has never known before – a life free of illness.

LHC collides ions at new record energy

Lead ions collide in the CMS detector

After the successful restart of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and its first months of data taking with proton collisions at a new energy frontier, the LHC is moving to a new phase, with the first lead-ion collisions of season 2 at an energy about twice as high as that of any previous collider experiment. Following a period of intense activity to re-configure the LHC and its chain ofaccelerators for heavy-ion beams, CERN’s accelerator specialists put the beams into collision for the first time in the early morning of 17 November 2015 and ‘stable beams’ were declared at 10.59am today, marking the start of a one-month run with positively charged lead ions: lead atoms stripped of electrons. The four large LHC experiments will all take data over this campaign, including LHCb, which will record this kind of collision for the first time. Colliding lead ions allows the LHC experiments to study a state of matter that existed shortly after the big bang, reaching a temperature of several trillion degrees.

Lead ions collide in the ALICE detector

“It is a tradition to collide ions over one month every year as part of our diverse research programme at the LHC,” said CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer. “This year however is special as we reach a new energy and will explore matter at an even earlier stage of our universe.”

Early in the life of our universe, for a few millionths of a second, matter was a very hot and very dense medium – a kind of primordial ‘soup’ of particles, mainly composed of fundamental particles known as quarks and gluons. In today’s cold Universe, the gluons “glue” quarks together into the protons and neutrons that form bulk matter, including us, as well as other kinds of particles.

“There are many very dense and very hot questions to be addressed with the ion run for which our experiment was specifically designed and further improved during the shutdown,” said ALICE collaboration spokesperson Paolo Giubellino. “For instance, we are eager to learn how the increase in energy will affect charmonium production, and to probe heavy flavour and jet quenching with higher statistics. The whole collaboration is enthusiastically preparing for a new journey of discovery.”

Increasing the energy of collisions will increase the volume and the temperature of the quark and gluon plasma, allowing for significant advances in understanding the strongly-interacting medium formed in lead-ion collisions at the LHC. As an example, in season 1 the LHC experiments confirmed the perfect liquid nature of the quark-gluon plasma and the existence of “jet quenching” in ion collisions, a phenomenon in which generated particles lose energy through the quark-gluon plasma. The high abundance of such phenomena will provide the experiments with tools to characterize the behaviour of this quark-gluon plasma. Measurements to higher jet energies will thus allow new and more detailed characterization of this very interesting state of matter.

“The heavy-ion run will provide a great complement to the proton-proton data we've taken this year," said ATLAS collaboration spokesperson Dave Charlton. "We are looking forward to extending ATLAS' studies of how energetic objects such as jets and W and Z bosons behave in the quark gluon plasma.”

The LHC detectors were substantially improved during the LHC’s first long shutdown. With higher statistics expected, physicists will be able to look deeper at the tantalising signals observed in season 1.

"Heavy flavour particles will be produced at high rate in Season 2, opening up unprecedented opportunities to study hadronic matter in extreme conditions,” said CMS collaboration spokesperson Tiziano Camporesi. « CMS is ideally suited to trigger on these rare probes and to measure them with high precision. »

For the very first time, the LHCb collaboration will join the club of experiments taking data with ion-ion collisions.

"This is an exciting step into the unknown for LHCb, which has very precise particle identification capabilities. Our detector will enable us to perform measurements that are highly complementary to those of our friends elsewhere around the ring,” said LHCb collaboration spokesperson Guy Wilkinson.

I need some food - Critical situation for kids in Sudan

I need some food

I need some medicine
I need some cloths 
I need a shelter 
I need a sleep 

OH my god why you are not trying to ease this struggles not happened any more.

As we know, in the world people who are living with luxury life style, same time other side of the world in DARK AND DARK room.

I have no words to describe this situation. when i was read this news i was shocked, this is not first time but i felt again and again.
So my dear friends please help children who live in Sudan suffer from Malnutrition. 


Some two million Sudanese children under five suffer from malnutrition every year, UNICEF’s representative said on Sunday, urging the international community to boost funding to tackle the problem.

Of those two million, nearly 550,000 children have life-threatening severe acute malnutrition, with many of those affected living in the underdeveloped east and conflict-hit Darfur region.

“Over 38 percent of children under the age of five are chronically malnourished across Sudan,” said Geert Cappelaere, the representative of the U.N. children’s agency to Sudan.

The number of children under five affected by chronic malnutrition works out at around two million, he told AFP in an interview. This figure includes 550,000 with severe acute malnutrition.

“In terms of numbers, it is an incredibly huge number of children who are affected by malnutrition in Sudan,” he said.
The worst affected areas are Red Sea State in eastern Sudan and North Darfur State in the west.

Ethnic insurgents have been battling the Arab-dominated Khartoum government in the western Darfur region since 2003, displacing millions and leaving some 300,000 people dead according to the U.N..

Eastern Sudan has suffered from severe underdevelopment and is one of the country’s poorest regions.

Mothers stopping breastfeeding too early and high rates of diarrhoea among children because of poor sanitation were behind the high malnutrition rates in the east.

Every year, UNICEF in Sudan treats some 150,000 of the most severely malnourished children.

Cappelaere urged the government and international community to contribute more funds, saying that “billions, not millions” of dollars (euros) are needed to reduce child malnutrition levels.

“We need to continue encouraging the government to invest more in malnutrition but at the same time it will have to be a collective responsibility, the international community will have to step up if it is serious in its commitment to help the Sudanese people,” Cappelaere said.

Meanwhile another source said that: 

One million children in Sudan under the age of five suffer from acute malnutrition. Some 550,000 among them are severely malnourished and at risk of dying. Another two million are stunted owing to chronic malnutrition.

Of Sudan’s 184 localities, 53 have severe acute malnutrition (SAM) rates that are classified as 'very critical' (above three percent), the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Sudan reports in its latest weekly bulletin.

The highest SAM rates measured are above 20 percent, and are found in three localities in South Darfur and Red Sea states. Most of the children with SAM are found in North Darfur, El Gezira, South Darfur, Khartoum and El Gedaref. These five states carry 51 percent of the national SAM burden.

A S3M (Simple Spatial Survey Methodology used to collect data on child malnutrition) survey conducted by Unicef in 2013 revealed that 128 of the 184 localities in Sudan have a stunting rate classified as ‘high’ (above 30 percent). Moreover, there are pockets of very high stunting rates, found mostly in the eastern states of Red Sea, Kassala and El Gedaref, with the highest being El Gedaref at 73 percent.

This results in an average global acute malnutrition (GAM) rate of 16.3 percent, which is above the 15 percent threshold that constitutes a critical emergency.

In several localities across the country, however, the GAM rate is alarmingly higher. In Red Sea state, Toker locality has a GAM rate as high as 46.7 percent, and in Agig locality it constitutes 37.4 percent.

Among the Darfur states, the poorest nutrition levels were observed in North Darfur, where El Sereif, Alliet, Dar El Salam, and Kalamindo localities have GAM rates above 25 percent.

Some progress

Results of the recent Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS 2014), however, highlight some of the progress being made in child health across Sudan. These include a 21 percent reduction in child mortality rates over the last decade.

Despite these gains, however, child mortality remains very high and the situation of children remains critical, OCHA reports. According to Unicef, the key drivers of this poor situation are the high incidence of communicable diseases amongst children, particularly diarrhoea, measles, pneumonia and malaria, and lack of access to basic services such as quality health care and safe water and sanitation facilities. Ongoing conflict, displacement and food insecurity continue to fuel and exacerbate the situation.

Furthermore, with the start of the lean season all feeding centres for severely malnourished children are experiencing an increasing number of children identified for treatment, leading to overcrowding in hospitals.

In Ed Daein, capital of East Darfur, the international Tearfund organisation recently reported a high number of malnourished children in its stabilisation centre, forcing each bed to be shared by two children.

Shortage of nutrition supplements

OCHA further reports that the World Food Programme (WFP) nutrition interventions are constrained by a lack of funding, as well as difficulties in importing nutrition supplements (super cereals) because of genetically modified organism (GMO) regulations in Sudan.

The nearly depleted stocks of super cereals will not be enough to sustain treatment programmes for more than 150,000 acutely malnourished children and pregnant or lactating women in need.

The WFP hopes to mitigate the impact of these shortfalls by locally procuring some quantities of super cereals, the OCHA bulletin reads. The UN organisation is also working closely with the Sudanese Bio-Safety Council to address the government’s zero tolerance for GMO in specialised food to resolve the issue.

One of the essential steps that individuals appear to pass up when they initially set out to make money blogging is that their online blog must have content that people enjoy reading.

There are many bloggers who are looking with their eyes closed about this fact. For example, in the event that you surf about 50 blogs you will see that the majority of them will claim they are knowledgeable on how to make money blogging when truly all they let you know is about their latest vacation or the kinds of cars they drive.

Are you ready to learn all about how to make money blogging?

What I am going to let you know is the steps used by bloggers to make money on the web. The decision to utilize these methods or not is up to you.

Step 1 – Finding a Topic

Switch off your PC, get a pen and some writing pad and recline some place you can unwind without losing focus. By chance that you are a beginner with this step, it can be tough in light of the fact that we all need to know how to make money online.

We need to know how to earn now. Consider about a point you are keen on and record it. This will help you be more dedicated to making attempts as opposed to surrendering within a day or two.

Additionally, be sure beyond any doubt it is something other people would be excited about as well. Several ways you may use to think about a theme is by utilizing MetaSpy. It helps you discover what individuals are looking for.

Request that IQ locate what’s well known and VRE Toolbar to figure out what number of individuals request for that particular topic. It is likewise valuable later on to build visitors. Record your best five keywords. You will need them soon in your blog.

Step 2 – Create Your Blog

Discover and build your blog online. Ideas include WordPress, Blogger and Movable Type. You can discover all the assistance you need in the system you use to get data when building your blog.

Compose your content. Ensure it’s unique, and also useful information. This is one of the fundamental ways to figure out how to make money blogging. You have to incorporate the keywords you found previously while in the content area of your blog. Do whatever it takes not to abuse these as it gives out bad vibes to the search engines, and this should be 100% not your intention.

Step 3 – Go Google

Apply for Google Adsense and embed the code in the side of your blog. You can tweak your advertisements from multiple points of view, for example, using text links or picture ads.

The text links are less demanding to add in your blog. They don’t distract the attention from the content. Google Adsense will most likely not make you a mogul but rather it is a fast method for acquiring little sums of cash.

You also need to track where your guests are originating from as to direct hits or from search tool results. I propose you utilize Google Analytics. You will find you can get all the help you need setting that up from inside of the program.

You will likewise need to submit your website URL and sitemap for inclusion in Google’s index.

Step 4 – Find Something to Sell

If you would prefer not to offer anything and are content with the money Google Adsense is generating then you can overlook this step. But if you want to increase money coming in and genuinely figure out how to make money blogging, you definitely need to find an affiliate program that has great potential..

A couple of associate programs that are prominent are ClickBank and Commission Junction. You can offer anything for sale from office equipment, films, pet supplies and apparel to computer games, weight loss methods and audio programs.

No matter the system you sign up with, you will be assisted with the code you should embed on your blog. To make money blogging, make sure you do this effectively or you won’t earn money from your guests. On the chance that you don’t know how to modify HTML, W3Schools HTML instructional exercise that you will find online is an extraordinary spot to begin.

Step 5 – Social Bookmarking

No preferable promotional method exists that is more successful than word of mouth to make money blogging. However, social bookmarking is a step that will help you accomplish your success. You will need to make things simpler for individuals to attempt this.

Social bookmarking websites suggested by numerous people are SocialMarker and OnlyWire. They are utilized for individuals to share their websites or bookmarks that they have liked with other folks in their online group.

I would not recommend you add your own blog link to these sites, yet give your blog guests the capacity to do this for you.

Step 6 – Write Articles

Whether your website is based on a particular item, for instance a specific MP3 Player you are advertising, or pretty much giving individuals data, I would recommend you write an article or a survey regarding it. This is a proven action to make money blogging.

Most content blogs need write-ups of 500 words or more so I would expand on this generally speaking when composing your content to guarantee your article is distributed.

Submitting your articles to any of the 100’s of directories which are in existence is your next step to make money blogging. For instance, examples of major article directories you can find, are Article Dashboard, EzineArticles,, SearchWarp and isnare. You will find a list of high PR directories later on.

Step 7 – Ping the Heck Out Of It

Each time you upload new data to your online blog, you need to tell the blog directories about it. This is called pinging. Some blog providers naturally convey pings when you update your blog. However on the side of caution, you will need to do this physically as well. You simply need to ping whenever you update.

There are existing ping sites ready to deliver pings to various web directories simultaneously. My first site to visit is PingMyBlog and afterward if for reasons unknown that webpage is not accessible I would utilize Ping-o-matic to make money blogging. Keep in mind, to just ping when you have updated or your blog could become blacklisted, which is very bad.

Step 8 – Yahoo! Answers and Forums

One of the most straightforward approaches to make money blogging is to get targeted guests to your blog. Your goal is to utilize the individuals you need to target. I would propose you register at no less than one forum in the area you are focusing on. Don’t simply go directly there and begin writing remarks for individuals to visit your web blog, they probably won’t.

The mystery is to include the link to your online blog in your signature and immediately start partaking in the forum discussions, posting pertinent subjects and starting threads on pertinent discussions to the forum.

Post frequently to make money blogging. The more frequent, the higher chances of your link being noticed. On the chance that you give somebody essential information for them, the possibilities are greater that they will visit your blog through your links.

Yahoo! Answers is similar to forums yet the magnificence of this is that it’s seen by a huge number of guests daily. In the event that you currently have a Yahoo! profile then register for one to make money blogging. At that point sign in and search for inquiries similar with the subject of your blog and reply to every one of them.

You can now embed the links to your blog. Likewise with the forum blogs, if you provide useful replies you may have not just gained yourself a score or two on Yahoo!, but further gotten yourself a guest or guests to your website.

Step 9 – Update Your Blog

You can do this by a few methods. To make money blogging, the first is to include new reviews or articles to your blog. If you are planning to fulfill this I propose adding one every few days. This serves to make the search engines interested as they want to see new and unique content every time.

A second method for upgrading your blog and maintaining new contents is by including RSS feeds to your blog. Be sure beyond any doubt the feeds are related to your blog and give guests insightful data.

Step 10 – A Freebie

It is very important that you have a free ebook or newsletter to make money blogging. This is a simple approach to encourage your guests to register to get new info or data. It will assist you to reach the visitor later with more exceptional information or items you want to offer for sale. Mailchimp is a good example to set up an autoresponder to give away a free ebook or newsletter in exchange for visitors subscribing to your list.


You can do directory submissions daily to make money blogging. Most of the time you can manage to get picked up by the link directories at the first try.

If you have followed the previous steps, you have excellent optimized articles on your site, then you will easily be picked up by the top pr directories where you have submitted your blog. In turn you will make money blogging because the search engines will get traffic to your blog.

The following list of 35 high PR Directories will help you expedite your search. List your blog manually in each one of these high PR directories to make money blogging. You will be happy you did.

What happened in France?

Investigations into the series of terrorist attacks that killed more than 120 people in Paris are moving forward, with people taken into custody and two of the gun-wielding suicide bombers identified.

French President Francois Hollande has blamed the Islamic extremist group ISIS for the wave of violence Friday that put parts of Paris under siege. He called the coordinated attacks on restaurants, bars, a concert hall and a sports stadium "an act of war."

ISIS claimed responsibility for the massacres in a statement that said eight of its militants wearing explosive belts and armed with machine guns attacked selected targets across the city.

It was the deadliest terrorist attack in Europe since the Madrid train bombings of 2004, in which 191 people died.

Here is what we know so far:

What happened?

-- Three teams of terrorists staged coordinated attacks at six locations throughout Paris late Friday, including a concert hall, the Stade de France and at least two restaurants, Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said Saturday.

-- Molins said that at least 129 people were killed and 352 wounded in the attacks. Ninety-nine of the wounded are reported to be in a very serious condition, he said.

Well wishers leave flowers near Bataclan
Molins said seven terrorists were killed, one fewer than the number ISIS claimed were involved.

-- A black Seat car believed to have been used by gunmen in the restaurant attacks has been found in the eastern Paris suburb of Montreuil, a spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor's office said Sunday. CNN affiliate BFMTV reported that authorities found three Kalashnikov automatic rifles in the car.

-- The discovery raises the possibility that at least one attacker drove the car to the Montreuil and remains at large. Police say they are searching for any possible attackers or accomplices.

-- "The threat is still going on. The risk is still very high, and nothing says this terror sequence is over yet," Paris Deputy Mayor Paul Klugman said.

The investigation

-- Two of the dead attackers have been identified. One of them is Ismael Omar Mostefai, 29, according to Jean-Pierre Gorges, the mayor of the French town of Chartres. The other, according to several sources, is Bilal Hafdi, 19 or 20. Mostefai lived in Chartres at least until 2012, said Gorges via Facebook.

How did Mostefai, attacker who grew up in France, become radicalized?

-- Six people, all relatives of Mostefai, have been detained, the Paris prosecutor's office said Sunday. It is common practice in criminal cases in France to place family members in custody. Mostefai's relatives have been neither charged nor arrested.
