‘Eat The Hotel’ Photos Video


Incredible!

One sugar company has given a whole new meaning to midnight feasts by creating the world’s first edible hotel.

The first sweet-filled pop-up hotel opened its doors last night and two lucky residents munched their way through vanilla sponge cushions, windows and walls clad with 2,000 macaroons, a rug made from 1,081 meringues and 20 kilos of marshmallows.

The Soho-based guest house took a team of 14 cake makers more than 2,000 hours to bake and 900 hours to decorate, and was created using more than 600 kilos of sugar.

For one night only sweet-toothed guests chomped their way through windowsills built entirely from fudge and bathed in a bath filled with caramel-coated popcorn; there were even edible books on the bedside table.

With thousands of baked treats for the guests to nibble on and over 100 pieces of edible art on show across three floors and eight rooms, there’s no way the guests left the hotel feeling hungry.

The hotel was the brainchild of Tate & Lyle Sugars and was inspired by regions from around the world based on the brands eight new Fairtrade sugars.

Curated by ‘Miss Cakehead’ with the help of 14 cake artists including The Meringue Girls and Cake For Breakfast, each room was themed by a different sugar.

 

Sweet dreams: The first ever cake hotel opened its doors allowing people to eat their way through edible furnishings including fluffy macaroon clad banisters, cupcake fairy lights, carpets made from cake and windowsills built entirely from fudge

  • ‘Haunted’ mirror for sale on eBay
  • Owner says mirror has caused ‘bad luck, misery and illness’
  • Nobody has bid to purchase the mirror thus far

Mrjoiee, from London, England, is trying to sell the spooky mirror on eBay, and has left none of its supernatural abilities to the imagination.

The mirror was posted on the online auction site last week, with the ominous warning:

“Since we put it up in our flat we have had nothing but bad luck, misery, financial problems and illness.”

The pair rescued it from a tip run when their landlord left it out with the rubbish.

Mrjoiee describes himself and his flatmate waking up, “screaming in pain”, and having a constant feeling of impending doom when they were home.

“Our original suspicions were that somebody was performing some kind of voodoo or Black magic on us,” he wrote.

“Truthfully, we both love the look of the mirror … but just being around this mirror gives me the creeps and makes me feel sick to my stomach.”

“I would ideally like it to go to somebody who has experience with the paranormal/supernatural and knows what they are getting themselves in for.”

The mirror had not received any bids at the time of writing.

The auction is open until the early hours of Tuesday, AEST, but you’d have to pick it up from its North London studio apartment.

Cheaters,Cheated Neeya Naana Vijay TV Finer Points

There are three classes in the category of the people cheated, or rather who succumbed to cheating for none can cheat you without your active participation.

1.Those who woke up after losing a fortune,like the one in the show who had lost over 35 lakhs over a period of ten years entering into any scheme that was offered from Gold Quest to plantations!

2.The second is the group that suspects that they are being cheated, made a quick check (anticipated and covered by the Scamaster), convinced them selves that they are smarter than the Scamster and went on losing!


Vijay TV, a Part of Star Group’s Tamil TV channel has a popular Talk Show,hosted by Mr.Gopinath covers a wide spectrum of subjects ,ranging from personal anguish like the one of those who have lost their spouses,Corruption and the recent one on Frauds,Fraudsters and the Cheated.

Scams On line.
On Line scam 2012

People who say that they are yet to be cheated and those who have lost a fortune were arrayed against each other and it made an interesting show.

 

There are three classes in the category of the people cheated, or rather who succumbed to cheating for none can cheat you without your active participation.

 

1.Those who woke up after losing a fortune,like the one in the show who had lost over 35 lakhs over a period of ten years entering into any scheme that was offered from Gold Quest to plantations!

 

2.The second is the group that suspects that they are being cheated, made  a quick  check (anticipated and covered by the Scamaster), convinced them selves that they are smarter than the Scamster and went  on losing!

 

A gentleman from Coimbatore narrated this.

 

He revived an email that he had won Nine crore and was given a London Phone Number.

 

He contacted the number and was pleasantly surprised that the man at the other end was addressing him by his personal name(this smart Alec did not know you can get that if you have an email ID).

The man at London told him that to complete the formalities a sum of Rs One lakh needed to be transferred to him.

Our smart man did not follow his instruction immediately and went on talking with that man for a period of Six months!.

Convinced that the man was sincere(because our man felt that no fraudster would continue the discussion after he was not listened to immediately),had some of his friends from Chennai to  join him .

Then he informed the man  at London and asked him to give the details of the Demand Draft.

The man at London do sent him the  scanned copy of the DD.

It was drawn on bank of Scotland for an amount equivalent to Rs One Crore..

Our friend had it verified by  his auditor and cross checked by phone to Bank of Scotland and was  informed that the DD was genuine.

Then he sent the  sum of Rupees one lakh.

Then the man at London told him either to come to London or he could send the money to India in Dollars through Courier and demanded Rs 100,000.

Our man convinced the London man to accept Rs  40,000 and sure when he contacted the Courier he was told indeed there was Cover for him containing money!

When he, along with his friends went to collect the cover , he was asked to pay aboutRrs 20,00 as the Courier explained that he had carried the Dollars Illegally and our friends refused to pay up.

Promptly they rang up London and convinced the man(!0 to send the money through some one to Chennai  and shelled out about 20.000.

Early next morning they had a call from a Mumbai Number that the money had arrived and they demanded Rs 20,000 to come to Chennai.

Or people paid and they were met near Park Sheraton Hotel by Two Nigerians with a suit case and parted with Rs 5000 to them towards their expenses!

They were told that the suit case contained Dollars in the form of Black papers and once dipped in the Liquid provided the black paper would into Dollars and they had a Demo !

Of course the Couriers left.

When our friends opened the suit case they found a bundle of black papers and a small bottle the size of an eraser .

When they dipped the papers in the liquid, the paper was burnt.

When they contacted London they were informed that they would receive a larger bottle and only then did our people realize that they were conned!

Wait, The Story does not end here.

The man who narrated the incident said that he has been in touch with the London man for the past eight years and the man was till asking him to deposit Rs 3 Lakhs to send  the Liquid!

A man with common sense would have found enough loopholes to suspect scam right from the beginning.

Why do people do they way they have done here?

Vatican Builds With Mussolini’s Millions

If double speak and moral decay needs an example ,don’t look elsewhere’

The Church will do .


The silence of the Vatican during the Holocaust was deafening.

Not only this, more than turning a Blind Eye to Mussolini when he was torturing and killing people ,Vatican used the Money of Mussolini to build ‘the premises of Bulgari, the upmarket jewellers in New Bond Street, had anything to do with the pope. Nor indeed the nearby headquarters of the wealthy investment bank Altium Capital, on the corner of St James’s Square and Pall Mall.’

If double speak and moral decay needs an example ,don’t look elsewhere’

The Church will do .

Vatican City
Vatican

Few passing London tourists would ever guess that the premises of Bulgari, the upmarket jewellers in New Bond Street, had anything to do with the pope. Nor indeed the nearby headquarters of the wealthy investment bank Altium Capital, on the corner of St James’s Square and Pall Mall.

But these office blocks in one of London’s most expensive districts are part of a surprising secret commercial property empire owned by the Vatican.

Behind a disguised offshore company structure, the church’s international portfolio has been built up over the years, using cash originally handed over by Mussolini in return for papal recognition of the Italian fascist regime in 1929.

Since then the international value of Mussolini’s nest-egg has mounted until it now exceeds £500m. In 2006, at the height of the recent property bubble, the Vatican spent £15m of those funds to buy 30 St James’s Square. Other UK properties are at 168 New Bond Street and in the city of Coventry. It also owns blocks of flats in Paris and Switzerland.

The surprising aspect for some will be the lengths to which the Vatican has gone to preserve secrecy about the Mussolini millions. The St James’s Square office block was bought by a company called British Grolux Investments Ltd, which also holds the other UK properties. Published registers at Companies House do not disclose the company’s true ownership, nor make any mention of the Vatican.”

Bill Gates ‘No Use For Money’

People forget that even if you happen to own millions of Dollars, you may eat three square meals,Sleep for ten hours,Drink probably a Bottle a day,have women restricted by one’s capacity (physical) at the most


One works himself to Death to earn money.

People forget that even if you happen to own millions of Dollars, you may eat three square meals,Sleep for ten hours,Drink probably a Bottle a day,have women restricted by one’s capacity (physical) at the most.

Then what?

Temporarily you are satisfied and the whole process begins all over after some time.

A vicious cycle.

Satisfaction  of the desires of the senses is like poring Ghee into a Fire.

The more you satisfy, more they demand!

Again the objects of satisfaction varies , not the  pleasure.

This pleasure changes from time to time and Age.

When one falls sick and befalls a bed, these pleasures are a Mirage.

Senses are meant to enjoy for limited purpose/enjoyment.

Over indulgence leads to Emptiness and disillusionment.

Things are enjoyable till they remain a mystery and seemingly unattainable.

Money is an  instrument for satisfying needs.

Once the basics are met, better to say quits.

This is the key to happiness.

“It’s very rare that you become a Billionaire.

But still rarer is to donate have your feet planted in the ground.

Bill Gates will be remembered longer for his Charity than for Microsoft.

Bill Gates has frugal tastes. Asked to name his luxuries, he lists DVDs, books and takeaway burgers. It is hard, however, to think that any fast-food outlet would get rich on Gates’s custom. During a long list of engagements beginning well before dawn, he consumes nothing but cans of diet cola.

For America’s wealthiest citizen, austerity is relative. The retinue of staff and the private jethint at a fortune said to be approaching £40 billion. As he told pupils at a south Londonschool he visited this week: “If I hadn’t given my money away, I’d have had more than anyone else on the planet. Ninety-nine per cent of it will go.”

Story:

“I’m certainly well taken care of in terms of food and clothes,” he says, redundantly. “Money has no utility to me beyond a certain point. Its utility is entirely in building an organisation and getting the resources out to the poorest in the world.”

That “certain point” is set a little higher than for the rest of us – Gates owns a lakeside estate in Washington State worth about $150 million (£94  million) and boasting a swimming pool equipped with an underwater music system – but one gets the point. Being rich, even on the cosmic scale attained by Bill Gates, is no guarantee of an enduring place in history. The projection of the personal computer into daily life should do the trick for him, but even at the age of 57 he is a restless man and wants something more. The “more” is the eradication of a disease that has blighted untold numbers of lives: polio.

Later this month, Gates will deliver the BBC’s Dimbleby Lecture, taking as his theme the value of the young human being. Every child, he will say, has the right to a healthy and productive life, and he will explain how technology and innovation can help towards the attainment of that still-distant goal. Gates has put his money where his mouth is. He and his wife Melinda have so far given away $28 billion via their charitable foundation, more than $8  billion of it to improve global health.

“My wife and I had a long dialogue about how we were going to take the wealth that we’re lucky enough to have and give it back in a way that’s most impactful to the world,” he says. “Both of us worked at Microsoft and saw that if you take innovation and smart people, the ability to measure what’s working, that you can pull together some pretty dramatic things.

“We’re focused on the help of the poorest in the world, which really drives you into vaccination. You can actually take a disease and get rid of it altogether, like we are doing with polio.”

This has been done only once before in humans, with the eradication of smallpox in the 1970s.

Polio’s pretty special because once you get an eradication you no longer have to spend money on it; it’s just there as a gift for the rest of time.”

One can see why that appeals to Gates. He has always sought neat, definitive solutions to things, but as he knows from Microsoft, bugs are resilient things. The disease is still endemic in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, and killing it off altogether has been likened to squeezing jelly to death. There is another, sinister obstacle: the propagation by Islamist groups of the belief that polio vaccination is a front for covert sterilisation and other western evils. Health workers in Pakistan have paid with their lives for involvement in the programme.

A helicopter crashed in South London near  Vauxhall, this morning.

Two died and 4 injured as reports last came in.

 

Helicopter crashes in London
UPDATED The stricken aircraft cartwheeled to the ground and exploded into flames just yards from the busy Vauxhall bridge railway line at around 8am. Burning wreckage and aviation fuel covered the road (centre) as eyewitnesses reported seeing cars on fire. Paul Ferguson, who was working nearby, said: ‘There was a flash and the helicopter plunged to the ground.’ Witnesses suggested the pilot may not have seen the crane which was barely visible from street level due to the fog.

  1. 1002:

    Max James Tolhurst, a manager at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital, told the BBC he was walking along Wandsworth Road and saw the aftermath of the crash. “I didn’t see the actual impact but as I was walking up the Wandsworth Road, I just saw lots of debris and fire… I walked closer and saw a crowd starting to gather before the police came over, it looked horrific. I went on to work at St Thomas’s Hospital and I know the teams were getting ready for whatever is going to emerge.”

  2. 1001:

    Bruce Grain, from the London Fire Brigade, added that parts of the wreckage landed on the roofs of the buildings, and firefighters had been up to check that all the fires were extinguished.

    He said he was unable to confirm any information about passengers due to the amount of wreckage, but that will become apparent throughout the day. He said they were not looking for any further casualties.

    Regarding the risk from widespread aviation fuel, he said: “We don’t know how much was on board, that’s why we’ve got lots of hoses and a large quantity of foam, but we were able to put the fire out very quickly and make it safe. All the surrounding fires are out.”

‘Ban The Cross’

If wearing scarf affects learning,so is Cross.

Both are ridiculous.

Again if people are dismissed for not working on Sundays,where is Civil Liberty?

If wearing a Cross is not a requirement of the Christian faith,then it can be banned.

So if you ban Hijab on the count that it distracts, so can the Cross be banned.

Hijab at least has religious sanction.

As in Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) ,these steps are wholly unwarranted and an incitement of the Muslim Community..


Ingenious logic!

‘Ban The Cross’ is not a slogan by Islamist or a terrorist Outfit .

But by a  Feature Writer from The Telegraph.

In a blog he expressed this view.

The instance relates to two separate incidents, one involving a Muslim Girl and another a Christian.

 

Christian Cross
The Cross

“So here we are again. A nine-year-old girl from south London has beenforbidden from wearing her hijab at school. As surely as night follows day, her family are suing the school for religious discrimination. Commentators on the Left, like the education journalist Susan Elkin, tie themselves in tautologies in efforts to call for toleration: “I know it’s hard for those of us who didn’t grow up in strict Muslim families to understand why it’s a sin for a child of nine to be bare headed in front of male teachers,” she concedes, “but would a uniform coloured headscarf really affect teaching and learning in the classroom?”

Which leads us to draw the inevitable comparison with the case of Celestina Mba, the Christian Baptist who was sacked for refusing to work on Sundays. A High Court judge, Mr Justice Langstaff, upheld the decision to dismiss her. And, of course, the case of Nadia Eweida and Shirley Chaplin, the two Christian women who claim that they were discriminated against when their employers barred them from wearing crosses at work. The Government positioned itself against the pair, stating that because wearing the cross is not a “requirement” of the Christian faith, wearing one in defiance of a ban can be a sackable offence. Or, as their lawyers pithily put it, Christians must “choose between their job and their faith….

 

Well taken point.

If wearing scarf affects learning,so is Cross.

Both are ridiculous.

Again if people are dismissed for not working on Sundays,where is Civil Liberty?

If wearing a Cross is not a requirement of the Christian faith,then it can be banned.

So if you ban Hijab on the count that it distracts, so can the Cross be banned.

Hijab at least has religious sanction.

As in Female Genital Mutilation(FGM) ,these steps are wholly unwarranted and an incitement of the Muslim Community..

 

Story:

To take a semantic tack: it is generally recognised that there is an important difference between tolerance and toleration. The former usually denotes an acceptance of alternative ways of life, whereas the latter tends to mean putting up with something with which one disagrees. It is often said that one of our best qualities in this country is our live-and-let-live mentality, and for this reason it is counter-intuitive to make a qualitative judgment about other people’s beliefs. But as even Susan Elkin’s commendably open-minded article demonstrates, in these cases it is necessary, however awkward, to distinguish between these two terms.

The fact is that wearing a cross to work, or arranging one’s shifts so that one doesn’t have to work on Sundays, is wholly benign and understandable. Even from an atheist point of view, it would be deeply unreasonable to object to people expressing their faith in these ways. Nothing more than tolerance is called for.

 

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jakewallissimons/100196615/never-mind-banning-the-hijab-what-about-the-banning-of-the-cross/

This process called FGM(Female genital Mutilation), in its opinion, violates woman’s’ Rights.

‘The resolution urges the 193 U.N. member states to condemn the practice, and to launch educational campaigns to eliminate it. It urges all countries to enact and enforce legislation to prohibit FGM, to protect women and girls “from this form of violence” and to end impunity for violators. Although not legally binding, UN General Assembly resolutions carry considerable moral and political weight.
