How to Exercise While Sitting at Your Computer

Sitting at the computer all day is not exactly good for the body. If you have to be at a desk all day long, doing some simple things can improve your posture and health.


1. Sit properly in a good chair designed for desk work. Your back should be straight, shoulders back, and the top of your monitor should be level with your eyes. If you have to look down or up, you need to adjust the height of your screen. If you keep leaning forward, first get your eyesight checked. After a while you will improve your posture and no longer need this

2. Maintain an ergonomic body posture while typing. Be sure your wrists are slightly lower than your elbows. This will help prevent Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Keep your legs bent at the knees so that the knees are only slightly higher than your hips. Feet should be flat on the floor or on a step stool of some sort.

3. Stand up every half hour to stretch or walk around a bit.

4. Stretch your calves, and give your eyes a break from focusing on your computer screen. This will also help prevent blood clots from developing in your legs. Blood clots are very common among middle-aged computer users.

5. Learn to stretch. To stretch your neck, flex your head forward/backward, side to side and look right and left. Never roll your head around your neck. This could cause damage to the joints of the neck.

6. Roll your wrists regularly (this will help prevent carpal tunnel syndrome if you spend a lot of time typing).

7. Notice if you tend to hunch in front of the keyboard. To counter that, perform the following exercise: open your arms wide as if you are going to hug someone, rotate your wrists externally (thumbs going up and back) and pull your shoulders back. This stretch is moving your body the opposite way to being hunched and you should feel a good stretch across your upper chest.

8. Contract your abdominal and gluteal muscles, hold them there for a few seconds, then release. Repeat this for every few minutes all day long while you are working at your desk.

9. Stretch your arms, legs, neck and torso while sitting. This will help prevent you from feeling stiff.

10. Take advantage of the downtime created by rebooting or large file downloads to get up and try something more ambitious such as doing a few push-ups, sit-ups, and/or jumping jacks. Beware of your snickering co-workers though.

11. Acquire a hand gripper. They are cheap, small and light. When you have to read something either on the screen or on paper, you probably won't be using your hands very often so squeeze your gripper. It is an excellent forearm workout.

12. Acquire an elastic band (also cheap, small and light) and use it to do the actions mentioned in step 9 (i.e., when stretching your arms, do it by pulling apart the elastic band). You will not only stretch but it will also work the muscles slightly.

13. Take a few deep breaths. If possible, get some fresh air in your lungs.

14. Invest in a large size stability ball or stability ball style desk chair, and sit on it with back straight and abs firm. The actual stability ball is more effective, however the chair is a more viable option for use in an office environment. Sit, bounce or do basic toning exercises while watching TV or talking on the phone as well. Use the actual ball form in moderation when typing, as this is probably not the most supportive seating to prevent carpal tunnel and tendonitis.

15. While sitting, lift up your legs on the balls of your feet and set them down. Repeat these until your legs are comfortably tired. Then repeat it again about 10 minutes later. Do this whole routine for about an hour or so. This will exercise your calves.

16. Have a bottle of water by your side and make a habit of drinking some every half hour. If you do this consistently you will begin to feel more alert and in the long run you will get thinner.

Useful thoughts

Don't compare yourself with anyone in this world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself

You are not responsible for what people think about you.
But you are responsible for what you give them to think about you.

A man is lucky if he is the first love of a Woman.
A woman is lucky if she is the last love of a man.

Write your Sad times in Sand, Write your Good times in Stone.

Behind every successful man, there is an untold pain in his heart.

Without your involvement you can't succeed. With your involvement you can't fail.

Love your job but don't love your Company because you may not know
when your company stops loving you.

You may get DELAYED to reach your Targets.
But every step you take towards your target is EQUAL to Victory.

It's better to loose your Ego to the one you Love,
than to loose the one you LOVE because of EGO.

Don't make promise when you are in JOY . Don't reply when you are SAD.
Don't take decisions when you are ANGRY. Think twice, Act wise. BE happy.

When you start caring about yourself, you start loving somebody.
But when start caring about others somebody will start loving you.

What is the Secret of SUCCESS... ? "RIGHT DECISIONS"
How do you make Right Decisions...? "EXPERIENCE"
How do you get Experience... ? "WRONG DECISIONS"

Biggest Feet

The record for the person with the biggest feet in the world is held by an American, called Robert Wadlow.
His feet were 47cm long and he took size 37 shoes!
He was 2.74 metres (that's nearly 9 ft) tall when he died in 1940.
Whenever he went out for a “Giant” walk, drivers would take their eyes off the road in disbelief and stare in amazement as they passed. You could hear the sound of bangs, crashes and crunches as cars following behind ran into them.


Did you know...

American President Abraham Lincoln, had size 14 feet

Did you know...

If you walked at a steady speed of 5kph (3 mph) non-stop day and night, it would take you a whole year to walk round the equator - a distance of 40,000 km (25,000 miles).
The average person walks the equivalent of three and a half times around the earth in a lifetime.
One quarter of all the bones in the human body are found in the feet.
Left handed people are generally left footed as well. They also tend to put their left foot forward first when they walk.


First Walk for Charity

The first walk for charity in the UK took place on Boxing Day in 1959 in aid of the World Refugee Fund. A total of 21 walkers paid 1 shilling (5p) each to enter and raised £20 in sponsorship. The furthest anyone walked was 50 miles.


Did you know...

Cats walk on their claws and not on their paws!


Did you know...

The first pedestrian crossing in Great Britain was sited near the Houses of Parliament in London, in December 1926. It consisted of two parallel white lines painted across the road. A white rectangular sign was positioned high up on a nearby pole, with a black directional arrow and a cross shape painted on it. It read, “Please Cross Here”. They were very polite in those days.


Did you know...

About 1 in 4 children sleepwalk at least once between the ages of 7 to 12!


Did you know...

The first manually operated traffic light in GB was also sited near the Houses of Parliament in London, on 10th December 1868. It was introduced to allow MP’s to enter the parliament buildings in their horse drawn carriages.. (The streets of London were just as congested then, but with four legged motors instead!).
A revolving gas illuminated lantern was mounted on a 7 metre (22 ft) high iron pillar with Red and Green signals.
Red meant stop and Green meant caution.
It was removed in 1872 following an explosion of gas, which seriously injured the police constable operating it.


Did you know...

The first Pelican Crossing was introduced in 1969. The word “Pelican” was chosen because it is a Pedestrian Light Control. Can you see why?
Today, there are “Puffin” and “Toucan” crossings. See if you can find out why these names were chosen.


Did you know...

You need to use 200 muscles in your body to walk


Did you know...

The first Zebra Crossings in the UK were introduced in 1951. The flashing belisha beacons on either side of the crossing came first though in 1934. They were originally made of glass but were the constant prey of children with stones. They were replaced with plastic globes in 1952. See if you can find out why they are called belisha beacons.


Did you know...

The mudskipper is a fish that can actually walk on land!


Did you know...

The first school crossing patrol started work in Oxford in 1933. The name "Lollipop" person came much later when the familiar round sign on a pole was introduced. Today's Lollipop people have to deal with much more traffic than was on the roads in 1933.


Did you know...

It is against the law to take your shoes off if you have smelly feet in a theatre in Winnatka, Illinois.


Most Expensive Legs

Michael Flatley, star of "Riverdance" had his legs insured for £25 million.


Most Expensive Feet

Charlie Chaplin, Hollywood's silent comedian with the splay footed trademark walk, had his feet insured for $150,000 (£33,500) in the 1920's; a fortune at the time.

Random thoughts

The life of a person is solely dependent on the kinds of work he does and the attitude he keeps. Believe it or not, we tend to find those we look for. If we look for success, we would find success. If we look for failure, we would find failure.

So it becomes highly necessary for us to maintain a positive attitude throughout our life, no matter whatever we might go through. Only a positive attitude can help ensure that we stay grounded on the hard soil, we do not fall down.

But being mere human beings of flesh and blood, sometimes it really becomes diffficult to maintain poise. However nothing good can ever be easy. Only hardships bear fruits.

Keeping a focus can be extremely helpful in the long run.

If we take a look at all the great men in the world we would find that all of them at some point of time had to face tremendous hardships and pain through which they came out with flying colours because they had their strong focus on what they wanted to achieve.

This drive for success helped them become whatever they became.

There is a well known saying... "Life is not a bed of roses"

Truly so, but that is where all the enjoyment is. Until and unless there are thorns, how can one enjoy the beauty of a rose.

Only a wild sea makes out a skillful sailor.

And when we go down and down and down... at one point we would definitely reach the bottom from where we can go in only one direction... UP !

So why worry, enjoy life as it comes... say to yourself "You are going through this only because you have the capability to go through this". Let us face all challenges with a smile and win them over.

In case you can't, at least you can say to yourself... "I tried my best !" :)))

When things in life seem almost too much to handle

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 glasses of wine...
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous "yes."
The professor then produced two glasses of wine from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.
"Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to
recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the
important things; your family, your children, your health, your friends, and your favourite passions; things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.
The sand is everything else; the small stuff.
If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your partner out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first; the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the wine represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of glasses of wine with a friend."

The Inspirational Power of Goal-setting

The Inspirational Power of Goal-setting
By Dr Janet Hall

Allow me to start with some very important questions.
Do you remember how motivated you were to succeed in your career when you were younger?
Did you really want to achieve your maximum potential?

And here's the most important question...
Where is your written list of goals and how would you know how well you have achieved them?

Most people I ask this question are unable to produce the list because they never made one in the first place! Some did make a list but it got lost somewhere in a sea of paper.

It has been documented that the one disciplined habit that separates the top three percent of the population from the rest is that of writing down their goals, believing in them and keeping them as a focus for direction.

There are two essential elements of the goals process:

1. Goal-Setting: choosing goals with a positive attitude, passionate desire and strong belief and self-confidence.
2. Goal-Getting: using that committed attitude to applied action with skills and disciplined strategies.


Goal-setting is inspirational through highlighting the benefits in striving for an outcome.
When you get excited about the rewards at the end of your work, "you get the fire in your belly", you get into action and action is the key to goal-achievement.

2. GOAL-GETTING - Skills and Strategies Necessary for Goal-Achievement

The most important generalized skills and strategies for goal-achievement are:
- Planning
- Managing Time
- Keeping Agreements.

It has been documented repeatedly, that time spent on planning is critical if you want to achieve a goal with least hiccups. Here is an invaluable saying: People who fail to Plan, Plan to fail.

Time management is easy to say and hard to do. The best plans can be interrupted by unseen or unexpected demands - computers break down, people get the flu.

Time managers are really task managers and they do this best by having a focus on one task at a time. They may need to actively arrange uninterrupted time, by managing other people. Agreement keeping is the essential ingredient in goal-getting.

Effective goals management is ten times more important than effective time management. A person with effective weekly goals and weak time management has a better chance of achieving worthwhile results than a person with weak goals and strong time management.

Goal-setting can make all the difference to your bottom line and if your competitors are achieving their goals, you may be left behind!


Goal-setting doesn't have to be a complex process. In fact, the simple is usually the best. You need to make your goals SMART

S - Specific
M - Measurable
A - Achievable
R - Realistic and
T - Time Framed


S - Simple
M - Meaningful
A - As if they are right here, right now
R - Responsible
T - Toward What you want

There is nothing as motivating as an impending event to encourage you to get a task done.

The best way to harness this is to declare your goal to someone you trust, ask them to be your coach and expect that you will achieve the goal as well as expected and by the due date. Your coach can be a professional, someone you love, a work colleague, a respected mentor, or just a good buddy. The primary task of the coach is to remind you that you are committed to achieving your goal. It's fun and sometimes more helpful, if they also encourage you, share your rewards and help celebrate when you achieve your goal

You also need a reliable means of documenting your goalmaking and goal management. There are many tools which can help - diaries, performance planners, electronic mechanisms and software (of course I recommend the GoalMaker software which I co-authored! ). Invest in a good tool and use it consistently and it will give you the edge over your competitors who rely on their fallible memory!


The goal making process follows logical, sequential behavioural steps. However, a substantial amount of the impact depends on your mental attitude. These guidelines reinforce a positive attitude so that you become unconsciously competent in setting your goals

1. Identify your mission or purpose in life and set your goals to align with this.

2. Decide what you really want and write it in the present tense as if it's already been achieved. Goals must be in writing. An unwritten want is just a wish. If it's in writing, it's a real, substantial commitment.

3. Goals must be concrete and specific - broad desires have no effect. Specify the tasks you will need to achieve each goal and then break each task into manageable "bite-size" bits. (How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.)

4. Goals must be believable. If you don't believe you can reach it, you won't. Eliminate the negatives in your life and focus on positive things. You are responsible for your thoughts, so make them positive ones. Don't listen to people who say, "It will never work. You can't do that. You'll never make it". Remember that Christopher Columbus would never have sailed over the horizon unless he had belief in himself.

5. Goals must be challenging and demand more from you. Be willing to stretch your comfort zone.

6. Act to set your goals in motion. Planning is only the first stage of goal achievement. First set your goals, then act to get your goals.

7. Apply self-discipline. No matter how many people are aware of your goal, the final responsibility rests with you. Remember - the buck stops here. You need to consistently organise yourself and work with determination and commitment if you are to achieve the success you truly deserve.

8. Goals must include your loved ones. Goals must harmonise and be in balance, not conflict with each other.

Goals must have target dates for completion. Set a target date for your goal and share it with someone who will encourage you to meet the deadline. There is nothing as motivating as an "impending event" to get you into action.

Little Nancy

Little Nancy was in the garden filling in a hole when her neighbor peered over the fence.

Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was doing, he politely asked, "What are you up to there, Nancy?" "My goldfish died," replied Nancy tearfully, without looking up," and I've just buried him."

The neighbor was concerned, "That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?"

Nancy patted down the last heap of earth then replied, "That's because he's inside your f***ing cat."


When Bill and Hillary first got married, Bill said, "I am putting a box under our bed. You must promise never to look in it."

In all their 30 years of marriage, Hillary never looked.

However, on the afternoon of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the better of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside.

In the box there were 3 empty beer cans and $1,874.25 in cash.

After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her guilt and she confessed, saying, "I am so sorry. For all these years I kept my promise and never looked in the box under our bed. However, today the temptation was too much and I gave in.

But now I need to know why do you keep the empty cans in the box?"

Bill thought for a while and said, "I guess that after all these years you deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again."

Hillary was shocked, but said, "I am very disappointed and saddened, but I guess after all those years away from home on the road, temptation does happen and I guess that 3 times is not that bad considering the number of years we've been together."

They hugged and made their peace.

A little while later, Hillary asked Bill, "So why do you have all that money in the box?"

Bill answered, "Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash."

Pay attention

"Are You Paying Attention?"

A professor is giving the first year medical students their first lecture on autopsies, and decides to give them a few basics before starting.

"You must be capable of two things to do an autopsy. The first thing is that you must have no sense of fear." At this point, the lecturer sticks his finger into the dead man's anus, and then licks it.

He asks all the students to do the same thing with the corpses in front of them.
After a couple of minutes silence, they follow suit.

"The second thing is that you must have an acute sense of observation: I stuck my middle finger into the corpse's anus, but I licked my index."

Food for thought

Hi friends,

Today afternoon as I thought about having a quiet nap, I saw a poor aged woman with a small baby crying aloud for alms. I sat up for a moment, went outside and saw her with the kid on her lap. Came inside, took some money and gave her.

But soon a realization dawned on me... We heard the slogun "India Shining". Didn't we?

IS INDIA REALLY SHINING? We have multiplexes, exquisite shopping malls, hitech technology parks, great universities. But we are not able to eradicate poverty, pain and misery. People like them roam about in the streets asking for help. We place few coins in their hands (some of us even don't bother to do that much)and close our doors and windows so that we might sleep peacefully !

Economic progress is fine ! Effort on building universities and industries is appreciated but what abt these people. Would they continue to suffer like this?

I need your help. Suggest things that could possibly help in eradicating the hardships that these people face. This is tough, never easy, I admit. But nothing good is ever easy.

Please help. Please suggest.

Thoughts of a complex mind

Do I know myself? Obviously ! (What a stupid question! You might think...) But, do I know myself well? Well....................................

A question that has plagued me since time immemorial... A question which is unanswered uptill now... Seen a life interspersed with happiness, sorrow, misery, success, failure and numerous other emotions... Felt several upsurges and downsurges in my heart... Never gave up... and never will... since I have that "Never say die" attitude... There were so many clashes... in my mind... but the most dangerous of all is that between the heart and the brain... can't take sides and impossible to remain a neutral... Okay, so lets have it as it comes... Why worry? Stay happy and keep smiling...

Grew up in a small town of Farakka... loved every bit of life... enjoyed it thoroughly... then school, college and now, my job... all happened in due course of time... but somewhere there is a jinx... a sorrow, a misery... don't know properly, what it is though... asked my mind, asked my brain, asked my heart... and each time I got a different answer....

What the hell am I writing down ! A complex piece of information... all scattered and unorganized... so similar to my bedroom... and so similar to my inner being... but who cares ! At least I don't...

I thought of penning down down my own thoughts, instead mixed it up completely.... Sorry readers, I am not that accomplished a writer... I give up tonight.. someday in future I might add some more feelings... until then cya !

How to become a lie detector?

Excerpt from the work of David J. Lieberman...
Signs of Deception

Once you realize that you’re being lied to, should you confront the liar immediately? Usually not. The best approach is to note the fact in your mind and continue with the conversation, trying to extract more information.
Once you confront someone who has lied to you, the tone of the conversation changes and gathering additional facts becomes difficult. Therefore, wait until you have all the evidence you want and then decide whether to confront the person at that time or hold off to figure how you can best use this insight to your advantage.

Section 1: Body Language

• The person will make little or no eye contact. A person who is lying to you will do everything to avoid making eye contact.
• Physical expression will be limited, with few arm and hand movements. What arm and hand
movements are present will seem stiff, and mechanical. Hands, arm and legs pull in toward the body; the individual takes up less space.
• His hand(s) may go up to his face or throat, especially to the mouth. But contact with his body is limited to these areas. He is also unlikely to touch his chest with an open hand gesture. He may also touch the nose or scratch behind the ear.
• If he is trying to appear casual and relaxed about his answer, he may shrug a little.

Section 2: Emotional States: Consistency and Contradiction

• The timing is off between gestures and words. If the facial expression comes after the verbal
statement ("I am so angry with you right now" … pause … and then the angry expression), it
looks false.
• The head moves in a mechanical fashion without regard to emphasis, indicating a conscious
• Gestures don’t match the verbal message, such as frowning when saying "I love you." Hands
tightly clenched and a statement of pleasure are not in sync with each other.
• The timing and duration of emotional gestures will seem off. The emotion is delayed coming on, stays longer than it should, and fades out abruptly.
• Expression will be limited to the mouth area when the person is feigning certain emotions –
happiness, surprise, awe, and so on – rather than the whole face.

Section 3: Interpersonal Interactions – When we are wrongfully accused, only a guilty person gets defensive. Someone who is innocent will usually go on the offensive.

• He is reluctant to face his accuser and may turn his head or shift his body away.
• The person who is lying will probably slouch; he is unlikely to stand tall with his arms out or
• There’s movement away from his accuser, possibly in the direction of the exit.
• There will be little or no physical contact during his attempt to convince you.
• He will not point his finger at the person he is trying to convince.
• He may place physical objects (pillow, drinking glass, et cetera) between himself and his accuser to form a barrier, with a verbal equivalent of "I don’t want to talk about it," indicating
deception or covert intention.

Section 4: What Is Said: Actual Verbal Content

• He will use your words to make his point. When asked, "Did you cheat on me?" The liar answers, "No, I didn’t cheat on you." In addition, when a suspect uses a contraction – "It wasn’t me" instead of "It was not me" – statistically, there is a 60% chance he is truthful.
• He may stonewall, giving an impression that his mind is made up. This is often an attempt to
limit your challenges to his position. If someone says right up front that he positively won’t budge, it means one thing: He knows he can be swayed. He needs to tell you this so you won’t ask, because he knows he’ll cave in. The confident person will use phrases like "I’m sorry, this is pretty much the best we can do."
• Watch out for the good old Freudian slip.
• He depersonalizes his answer by offering his belief on the subject instead of answering directly. A liar offers abstract assurances as evidence of his innocence in a specific instance.
Example: "Did you ever cheat on me?" and you hear, "You know I’m against that sort of
thing. I think it morally reprehensible."
• He will keep adding more information until he’s sure that he has sold you on his story. The
guilty are uncomfortable with silence. He speaks to fill the gap left by the silence.
• He may imply an answer but never state it directly.

Section 5: How Something Is Said

• Deceitful response to questions regarding beliefs and attitudes take longer to think up. However, how fast does the rest of the sentence follow the initial one-word response? In truthful statements a fast no or yes is followed quickly by an explanation. If the person is being deceitful the rest of the sentence may come more slowly because he needs time to think up an explanation.
• Watch out for reactions that are all out of proportion to the question. May repeat points that
he has already made. May also be reluctant to use words that convey attachment and ownership or possessiveness ("that car" as opposed to "my car").
• The person who is lying may leave out pronouns and speak in a monotonous and inexpressive
voice. When a person is making a truthful statement, he emphasizes the pronoun as much as
or more than the rest of the sentence.
• Words may be garbled and spoken softly, and syntax and grammar may be off. In other words, his sentences will likely be muddled rather than emphasized.
• Statements sound an awful lot like questions, indicating that he’s seeking reassurance. Voice,
head and eyes lift at the end of their statement.

Section 6: Psychological Profile

• We often see the world as a reflection of ourselves. If you’re being accused of something, check your accuser’s veracity. Watch out for those people who are always telling you just how corrupt the rest of the world is. Beware of those asking you if you believe him. They may respond with, "you don’t believe me, do you?" Most people who tell the truth expect to be believed.
• Look at whether his focus is internal or external. When a person is confident about what he’s
saying, he’s more interested in your understanding him and less interested in how he appears
to you.
• In a liar’s story, he will usually not give the point of view of a third party. To illustrate giving
a point of view of someone else, "My roommate was so shocked that I would…"
• In relating a story, a liar often leaves out the negative aspects (unless the story is used to
explain way he was delayed or had to cancel plans). The story of a vacation, for example,
should have both positive and negative aspects of what happened.
• A liar willingly answers your questions but asks none of his own. For example, during their
first intimate encounter, Randy asks his new girlfriend if she’s ever been tested for AIDS.
She responds with "Oh, yes, certainly," and continues on a bit about annual checkups, giving
blood, etc. And then nothing! If she was concerned about her health, as her answer implied, then she would have asked him the same question. The liar is often unaware that coming across as truthful means both answering and asking questions.

Section 7: General Indications of Deceit

• When the subject is changed, he’s in a better, more relaxed mood. The guilty wants the subject changed; the innocent always wants a further exchange of information.
• He does not become indignant when falsely accused. While he is being accused the liar will remain fairly expressionless. The liar is more concerned with how he is going to respond than
he is with the accusation itself.
• He uses such phrases as "To tell you the truth," "To be perfectly honest," and "Why would I lie to you?"
• He has an answer to your question down pat, such as giving precise detail to an event occurring two months ago.
• He stalls by asking you to repeat the question or by answering your question with a question.
"Where did you hear that?" "Could you be more specific?" or even repeating your question
back to you, at an attempt at sounding incredulous. For example, "Did I sell you a puppy with a heart condition? Is that what you’re asking me?"
• What he’s saying sounds implausible, such as "During the past ten years, I have never used a
specific racial epithet."
• He offers a preamble to his statement starting with "I don’t want you to think that…" Often
that’s exactly what he wants you to think. Whenever someone makes a point of telling you what they’re not doing, you can be sure it’s exactly what they are doing. Such as, "Not to hurt your feelings, but…"
• He implies through a form of denial. You hear, "He’s having marital problems, but it has nothing to do with his wife’s new job." What’s the first thing you ask? "What does his wife do?" Suddenly you’re in the exact conversation that is "supposed" to have no bearing on the facts.
• He uses humor or sarcasm to defuse your concerns, rather than responding seriously.
• He offers you a "better" alternative to your request when he is unable to give you what you
originally asked for. Before you accept someone at his word that he has something better to
offer, first see whether he has what you originally asked for. If he doesn’t, then you shouldn’t
believe him.
• All of his facts relating to numbers are the same or multiples of one another. Watch out when
facts, figures, and information have unusual similarities.
• There is evidence of involuntary responses that are anxiety based. Anxiety causes many things. His breather may appear as a deep, audible inhaling in an attempt to control his breathing to calm himself. Swallowing becomes difficult; he may clear his throat. His ability to focus on something is often diminished, unable to pay attention to what’s going on.
• He uses an obvious fact to support a dubious action. For example, let’s say that a guard is
standing watch over a restricted area. It’s his job to check ID’s of those who enter. "I’m not sure you have authorization," he says to a man attempting access. "I’m not surprised," answered the man, "only a few people are aware of my clearance level. My work here is not supposed to be known by everyone."
• He casually tells you something that deserves more attention.
• He exclaims his displeasure at the actions of another who has done something similar so that
you will not suspect him. For instance, if he is trying to throw you off track of his embezzlement scheme, he may openly chastise another employee for "borrowing" some office supplies for personal use at home. Your impression is that he is moral person who objects to something as minor as stealing office supplies. Certainly he cannot be responsible for a large-scale embezzlement scheme.
• He may casually tell you something that should deserve more attention. "Oh by the way, I’ve
got to go out of town next weekend on business." If he doesn’t usually travel for work on the
weekends, then you would expect her to make a point of how unusual the trip is. Her downplaying the trip makes it suspicious. When something out of the ordinary happens and
the person doesn’t draw attention to it, it means that he is trying to draw attention away from
it. Another tactic is running off a long list of items in the hope that one will remain unnoticed.
• If he lies about one thing, everything he says is questionable.
• His story is so wild that you almost don’t believe it. But you do, because if he wanted to lie, you think that he would have come up with something more plausible.

Golden Rules for Career Success by Richard Moran

Golden Rules for Career Success

Richard Moran

WORKING as a business consultant all over the world, I have discovered some basic career-related rules that everyone should know—but many don’t.

Business is made up of ambiguous victories and nebulous defeats. Claim them all as victories.

Keep track of what you do; someone is sure to ask.

Be comfortable around senior managers, or learn to fake it.

Never bring your boss a problem without some solution. You are getting paid to think, not to whine.

Long hours don’t mean anything; results count, not effort.

Write down ideas; they get lost, like good pens.

Always arrive at work 30 minutes before your boss.

Help other people network for jobs. You never know when your turn will come.

Don’t take days off sick—unless you are.

Assume no one can/will keep a secret.

Know when you do your best—morning, night, under pressure, relaxed; schedule and prioritize your work accordingly.

Treat everyone who works in the organization with respect and dignity, whether it be the cleaner or the managing director. Don’t ever be patronizing.

Never appear stressed in front of a client, a customer or your boss. Take a deep breath and ask yourself: In the course of human events, how important is this?

If you get the entrepreneurial urge, visit someone who has his own business. It may cure you.

Acknowledging someone else’s contribution will repay you doubly.

Career planning is an oxymoron. The most exciting opportunities tend to be unplanned.

Always choose to do what you’ll remember ten years from now.

The size of your office is not as important as the size of your pay cheque.

Understand what finished work looks like and deliver your work only when it is finished.

The person who spends all of his or her time is not hard-working; he or she is boring.

Know how to write business letters—including thank-you notes as well as proposals.

Never confuse a memo with reality. Most memos from the top are political fantasy.

Eliminate guilt. Don’t fiddle expenses, taxes or benefits, and don’t cheat colleagues.

Reorganizations mean that someone will lose his or her job. Get on the committee that will make the recommendations.

Job security does not exist.

Always have an answer to the question, “What would I do if I lost my job tomorrow?”

Go to the company Christmas party.

Don’t get drunk at the company Christmas party.

Avoid working at weekends. Work longer during the week if you have to.

The most successful people in business are interesting.

Sometimes you’ll be on a winning streak and everything will click; take maximum advantage. When the opposite is true, hold steady and wait it out.

Never in your life say, “It’s not my job.”

Be loyal to your career, your interests and yourself.

Understand the skills and abilities that set you apart. Use them whenever you have an opportunity.

People remember the end of the project. As they say in boxing, “Always finish stronger than you start.”

Great joke -- Sardar with brain !


A Sardar and an American are seated next to each other on a flight from Los Angeles to New York. The American asks if he would like to play a fun-game.

Sardar, tired, just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The American persists and explains that the game is easy and a lot of fun. He says, "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and vice versa." Again, the Sardar declines and tries to get some sleep. The American, now worked up, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5 and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $500."

This gets the sardar's attention and, figuring there will be no end to this torment, agrees to the game. The American asks the first question, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The Sardar doesn't say a word, reaches into his wallet, pulls out a $5 bill and hands it to the American.

"Okay", says the American, "Your turn." So the Sardar asks, "What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four legs?"

The American thinks about it. No answer. Puzzled, he takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. No answer! He taps into the air-phone with his modem and searches the Internet and the Library of Congress. No answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mails to all his friends and co-workers. Checks the input. All to no avail! Finally, a long time later, he wakes the Sardar and hands him $500. The Sardar thanks him and turns back to get his sleep. The American, more than a little miffed, stirs the Sardar and asks, "Well, what's the answer?"

Without a word, the Sardar reaches into his purse, hands the American $5 and goes back to sleep!

Supernova, one of the most beautiful visualizations that one can behold in the universe.
A supernova is essentially the explosion of a star in outer space. During a supernova occurrence, a star’s luminosity is increased by as much 20 times as the bulk of the star’s mass is blown away at an extremely high velocity. Supernova remnants, including the signature bright light they leave behind, can often be seen in the night sky by the naked eye for several weeks as it gradually diminishes.
There are several different kinds of supernovae, which are believed to be caused by two distinct sources. One possible cause for Supernova occurrences results from a star halting its generation of fusion energy from fusing the nuclei of atoms in its core, causing it to collapse under the force of its own gravity. Another possible source occurs when a white dwarf star accumulates material from another nearby star until it nears its Chandrasekhar limit and undergoes runaway nuclear fusion in its interior, ultimately leading to its destruction.
Supernovas are generally classified according to the lines of different chemical elements that appear in their spectra, the first of which is hydrogen. If a supernova's spectrum contains a hydrogen line, it is classified as Type II, if this line of hydrogen is not present the Supernova is Type I. Within the Type I and Type II classifications are five sub-classifications that include Type Ia, Type Ib, Type Ic, Type II-P and Type II-L, each having its own distinct chemical and physical characteristics.

7 Signs your honey may cheat ! (By Gilda Carle, Ph.D.)

This article was forwarded to me by Abhijit Ghosh and is authored by Gilda Carle. This is an exceptional article no doubt !

7 signs your honey may cheat

By Gilda Carle, Ph.D. Most of us — even the not-so-jealous types — know that feeling of, "Is my sweetheart really working late… or could this person be two-timing me?" I've counseled many individuals dealing with this concern, so let me share my knowledge with you about the signs that someone is cheating (or seriously contemplating it). Use this information and insight—and either stop worrying or have a serious talk with your partner!

Sign #1: Your sweetie keeps you a secret from his/her family & friends
Cheaters keep you in the dark while they play in the light. Your relationship won't work if you're getting what I call the Shadow Treatment. The Shadow Treatment means that you are often kept waiting in the wings while your mate is out socializing. Think about it: Are there gatherings of friends, family reunions or workplace parties that you are not invited to? Do you only meet some of your honey's network of friends? If you are kept on the sidelines, there's probably a good reason. Maybe your sweetie is on the prowl for someone else. Or perhaps there is already someone else and so your role in his or her life can't be made public. Anytime you are kept on the fringes once you believe you are an exclusive couple, be suspicious. And know that the only way to end Shadow Treatment is to stop accepting it. Once you challenge it, you will either be fully accepted in your sweetheart's life… or know it's time to leave.

Sign #2: Your sweetie is emotionally absent
Cheaters conceal their emotional whereabouts so they can be evasive about their physical whereabouts. Love is exhausting when you have to pry the truth out of a partner.

Consider this story: After enjoying a platonic friendship for a decade, Margaret and Roy began dating. Roy was a traveling sales manager. While he was on the road, Margaret heard from him only occasionally. But he continued to say he wanted to spend more time with her—which he never did. Margaret was obviously a low priority for him. She was shocked to learn he had another girlfriend across the country.

An emotionally absent partner may say what you want to hear, but will not change his or her actions—unless he or she wants to. Saying the right thing and doing the right thing are very different. If your honey talks a good game about spending more time with you and paying more attention to you but never delivers—look out! This person may be juggling multiple relationships.

Sign #3: Your sweetie says he or she wants a no-strings-attached romance
If someone says, "I don't want a commitment," take the sucker at his or her word. Don't fall into that "I'll be the one to change all that!" trap. Cheaters rebel against control and might even have an affair to spite a partner who wants to rein him or her in.

Too often, people ignore the clear message a potential date sends. If someone tells you, "I'm not into serious relationships," "I won't give up my freedom," "I'm not ready to settle down," or anything resembling that, take a giant step back! He or she is clearly telling you, "I want to play the field." If you pursue the person anyway, hoping for an exclusive relationship, you may find yourself two-timed and broken-hearted. Never push a person into a situation he or she doesn't want to be in. Never pursue a committed relationship with someone who tells you he or she doesn't want one.

Sign # 4: Your sweetie admits to cheating on exes—and justifies the betrayals
Cheaters rationalize their behavior to let themselves off the hook. The way they justify their actions tells much about their character.

Listen to the excuses for past cheating your sweetie uses. Here are a couple I've heard from clients in my therapy practice over the years:

  • "My ex was abusive because of a drinking problem, so I deserved to see someone kinder on the side."
  • "My father cheated on my mom, so cheating on my girlfriend is how I'm working through my past."

Everyone has a tale to tell. But are these rationalizations — or any rationalizations — acceptable to you? A person who admits to infidelities in the past and explains them away has a good chance of straying again. He or she has not taken responsibility for past actions, nor worked through the issues involved.

Sign #5: Your sweetie has never been without a mate
Cheaters won't ride solo... ever! Leaving one romance and hopping into a new one — or having simultaneous affairs at once — doesn't leave time for assessing whatever went wrong. They don't bother with introspection; their focus is squarely set on pulling new people into their orbit. If you are dating a person who shares a romantic history that always involves finding a new partner before breaking up with the current partner, take heed. This person may think of his or her mate only as void-fillers. Filling a void is never a basis for lasting love.

Sign #6: Your sweetie tells lies about little things
Cheaters lie about everything, which leads you to question their truth from their fiction. When the need to embroider overshadows the desire to be honest, the relationship becomes a sham.

Craig's friend set him up on a blind date with divorcĂ©e, Alice, who was a top attorney in town with no children. Each time they were together, Alice described her interesting caseload. Craig was fascinated—and falling hard. He was so caught up in her charismatic personality that he chose not to focus on the fact that some of her stories contradicted themselves, and that Alice seemed to change certain details as she got further into her story sharing. One day, the local newspaper featured someone who had been indicted for impersonating an attorney. He was shocked to find that it was Alice, and that she was a wife and mother as well! Alice had lied to both Craig and his friend.

If you are dating someone who seems to be untruthful about mundane topics — where he or she had lunch, what he or she is doing on Sunday morning — take note. The lies probably run deep. As my Gilda-Gram warns, "Without truth, there is no love."

Sign # 7: Your sweetie brags about his or her sex appeal
Cheaters are insecure, and need to attract constant attention on the side. They flaunt their popularity in attempts to boost their own low self-esteem. Let me give you an example: Marilyn met a "hot guy" on a singles cruise, and the pair became inseparable for the week. When they returned home, they spoke to each other constantly. He sent her a plane ticket to visit him. While together, Hot Guy boasted that he was his town's "go-to" guy for all the lonely women. Instead of Marilyn reading that as a sign to stay away, she interpreted his description of himself as "cute."

Visiting her two weeks later, he said he was available throughout the week—except for a lunch date he had with a woman he had just met. Marilyn found that peculiar, but said nothing. After a dinner party, he detailed how many women had come on to him. Marilyn began feeling disrespected and put down. Finally, after crying herself to sleep, she told Hot Guy he was too hot for her.

If a partner boasts how in demand he or she is, recognize how insecure he or she really is—and steer clear. This person probably needs more ego-stroking than any one person can provide... and will look where he or she has to in order to find it.

So now you know the signs that indicate that maybe your sweetie isn't such a sweetie after all. Life and love are all about learning. Remember this Gilda-Gram: "Everyone who touches you, teaches you." Instead of getting bummed out about a cheater who stole your heart, think of what you learned, and how your experience got you to grow. Your new insight will arm you to attract someone more trustworthy in the future.

Jokes !!!

Hi friends

You will love these jokes... I have compiled these from emails of friends.....
Happy reading! (:))

Just came across a interesting joke about Newton and Mithun.....
Here it goes:
Recently the father of physics made a visit to earth to watch a movie. He watched a few Indian movies and had his head spinning.He was convinced that all his logics and laws in physics were just a huge pile of junk and apologised for everything he had done. In the movie of Mithun Chakravarthy Newton dada was confused to such an extent that he went paranoid. Here are a few scenes:
1) Mithunda has a Brain Tumor which, according to the doctors, can't be cured and his death is imminent.In one of the fights, Our great Mithunda is shot in the head. To everybody's surprise, the bullet passes through his ears taking away the tumor along with it and he is cured.Long Live Mithunda
2) In one of the movies, Mithunda is confronted with 2 gangsters. Mithunda has a Gun but unfortunately only one bullet. Guess, what he does.......
He holds a knife in his hand and shoots the bullet towards the knife. The knife cuts the bullet into 2 pieces and kills both the gangsters. Then, Mithunda utters the following dialogue
"Apun ka naam hai HIRA, Apun ne sabko Chiraa".
3) Mithunda is chased by a gangster. Mithunda has a revolver but he got no bullets in it. Guess, what he does.Nah not even in your remotest imaginations. He waits for the gangster to shoot. As soon as the gangster shoots, Mithunda opens the bullet compartment of his revolver and catches the bullet. Then, he closes the bullet compartment and fires his gun. Bang... And the gangster dies....
4) The heroine is tied to an electric chair and the remote is in the hands of the villain about 100 km away.As usual, the villain confronts the hero saying
"Hathiyar phek do warna main yeh remote ka button dabake tumhari mehbooba ko mar doonga".
The usual fight occurs and just as the hero makes the final blow, the villain dies but not before he presses than damn button. Now what to do?
Sure enough, there is a horse and the hero jumps on it. Now there is a race:The current in the cable connected to the electric chair is moving fast but our hero and his horse are desparately trying to catch up.... goes on for a few km and just as the current would hit the chair,the hero jumps from the horse and picks the girl away from the chain and husssshhhh.She is saved. The poor electric current only goes to an empty chair.
Climax,taaalian. Hero! Hero!! Hero!!!
This was too much for our Newton to take and he was completely pissed off and he decided to go back.But he happened to see a Rajnikanth movie for one last time and thought that at least one movie will follow his theory of physics.
The whole movies goes fine and newton is happy that all in the world hasn't changed. Oops not so fast.The climax finally arrives. Rajni gets to know that the villian is on the the other side of a very highwall.So high that Rajni can't jump even if he tries likeone of those superman techniques that our heroes normally use.Rajni has to desparately kill the villian because its the climax. Newton dada is smiling since it is virtually impossible.Rajni suddenly pulls two guns from his pocket(Probably a backup). He throws one gun in the air and when the gun has reached the height of the wall ,he shoots at the trigger of the first gun in air, with his second gun.Now the first gun fires off and the villian is dead...............
Newton faints
Hey friends,

This evening I thought about adding something to my blog which had been barren for quite sometime

Monsoon fever !!!

Hey friends,

This evening I thought about adding something to my blog which had been barren for quite sometime now... :-(

And, believe me I could think of nothing else other than the sweet sound of continuous downpour outside. Ya the monsoons have come and they are here to stay. I sincerely wish I had been in Farakka this time of the year, since that is the place where one can truly have the pleasure of monsoon.

But in Kolkata, life is pretty horrible. As long as you are in your sweet home, everything seems normal, but as soon as you think of venturing outside, you are doomed. The roads are all clogged with water. The drainage systems are mere showpieces and to top it all, there are innocent looking open manholes waiting to engulf an unsuspecting being.

But life moves on.... and we know pretty well that "Life is not a bed of roses".

Don't we?
