Paul the octopus-world cup finalist predicter

Spain's victory over Germany in the World Cup last night was accurately predicted by the English born Paul the octopus.He also had predicted Germany's victory against against England and Argentina, and even Serbia's defeat of Germany in the group stage.
Paul's handlers at Aquarium Sea Life in the western city of Oberhausen have turned him into a betting phenomenon by putting mussels into two glass boxes, with one box having Germany's flag while the other has the flag of their opponents which was Spain. Paul is then left to make his decision.

On Tuesday night, he first moved towards the container bearing the Spanish flag before moving around the tank and hovering over the German flag. But the two-year-old,paul eventually reverted to his first option.

Paul has made mistakes in his predictions, although not often. His most famous mistake was when he wrongly picked Germany over Spain in the 2008 European Championship.

How can a Windows virus end up on an iPod?

What does Ipod stands for?????
The word "iPod" doesn't stand for anything exactely,in the sense its not a completely an acronym.The name breaks down into two sections "i" and "Pod".The "i" is the common part of the name given by Apple to its products at the time ipod was released like iTunes,iBook,iMac. And "Pod" according to some source , stands for "Portable Open Database", a software which is used to run the iPod.

In October 2006, iPod ran into a bit of a snag regarding its Windows support, considered by many in the industry to be crucial to iPod's near-complete dominance in the portable media player market. One might think that because iPods are Apple devices, they're not susceptible to the viruses that plague Microsoft's Windows operating system. Apparently, not so. If you bought an iPod video between September 12, 2006 and October 18, 2006, there is, according to Apple, a 1 percent chance it contains a worm called RavMonE.exe.

The worm is of the sort that opens a "back door" on a PC so that a remote user can start controlling the infected computer. The iPod shuffles and iPod nanos shipped after September 12 are not infected with the malware; the worm does nothing to harm the iPod device itself; and people who only connect the iPod video to a Mac running Mac OS X will never activate the worm. The malware is in the Windows-support programs that live on the iPod.

The worm jumps into action when you connect an infected iPod video to a machine running Windows that is set to automatically run iPod applications when it detects a connected iPod. So the easiest way to make sure your PC doesn't get infected is simply to disable the autorun/autoplay capabilities in your iTunes interface. That way, you'll be prompted to approve each application the iPod software wants to run. If your computer asks you to run something called RavMonE.exe, also known as Win32.RJump.a, Troj/Bdoor-DIJ, WORM_SIWEOL.B, Backdoor.Rajump and numerous other names, just say no. In fact, it's probably best to put e-mail rules into effect and just say no to running anything that looks unfamiliar.

So how does this type of thing happen? Apple Vice President Greg Joswiak explains in a CIO Tech Informer article :

As you’re probably aware, the majority of iPod sales are made to Windows users, so we have some Windows terminals on our production line. We discovered that one of these computers was propagating this virus.
­ The machine that was doing the infecting was apparently the last Windows machine on that particular production line -- the quality-control computer.

­ If you do end up connecting an infected iPod to your PC, your anti-virus software should be able to detect it, so hopefully you won't get infected. If you do get infected, running a standard virus-detection-and-removal program should be able to clean your machine. Splotlighting News recommends that all Windows users who have connected a potentially infected iPod to their machine run one of these:
Microsoft Live OneCare Safety Scanner
Microsoft Live OneCare
Symantec Norton Anti-Virus

Apple says that all iPods shipped as of October 18, 2006, are free of malware.

How to Give Her an Unforgettable Valentine’s Day Gift

A lot of men dread Valentine’s Day. Not only is the special lady in their life expecting Valentine’s Day to be romantic and unforgettable, she expect the same every year. How does a man keep from running out of ideas. Here is how to actually enjoy Valentine’s Day and get her the gift she won’t forget.

First and foremost, consider her personality. I mean really think about the traits that make her unique. Is she a humanitarian, an animal lover, a fashionista etc? Is she a great cook, an aspiring writer, loves the outdoors? Then buy her a gift that matches her personality.

Consider her lifestyle. Does she work 50 + hours a week? If so she could probably use a relaxing day at the spa, or just a facial if you’re a little strapped for cash. Does her home need cleaning or repairs? Do some repairs for her and if you’re not dying to clean her apartment hire a cleaning service to do it for you.

Imagine her surprise when she gets home and the place is sparkling clean, or the faucet is no longer running and you’re ready to take her out for an intimate candle light dinner. Or better yet, cook for her.Consider her needs . Perhaps she needs a new coffee machine, or some other appliance but has not had the money to buy a replacement. If you can afford it consider getting it for her.

Call her friends and find out if she’s told them about any gifts she’s like to receive. Ask whether or not she’s voiced wanting to buy something for herself lately. They might even know about something she really wanted to buy but didn’t for one reason or another. If they can’t tell you anything specific, buy her a gift card for her favorite store.

Be romantic. It’s Valentine’s Day. Whatever you get her, don’t forget to include the card. Or if you want to make her really happy, (happy enough to give you a surprise in bed) write her a love letter. Finally, do not forget to buy chocolates.

Happy Valentines Day!!

Times are hard, retrenchments are rife and companies are not queueing up to employ recently qualified matriculants, or graduates, for that matter.

So what do you do if you suddenly find your accounts piling up and there is no job to go to? All is not lost – there is much that you can do.

Let everyone know: Put the word out that you are looking for a job – tell all your friends, your parents' friends, teachers, people at the church and the sports club. Tell people you're prepared to do anything – many an unromantic part-time job that was well done, has led to greater things.

Be on the lookout: Lying in front of the TV moping is not going to get you anywhere – what are you waiting for? The perfect job to come knocking on your door? Check the newspapers regularly, scout the noticeboards at the community centre, listen to the radio. In short, be alert for any opportunity.

Lower your expectations: Many newly graduated people especially have grand ideas of what they would like to do and what they won't do. Fact is, the market is saturated and employers can pick and choose between myriads of applicants with decades of experience. Be prepared to do anything – if you work well, it will provide you with an entry point into a field of work and you can then work your way up. But you need to get in first. Also be modest in your salary expectations – unrealistic demands could lose you an opportunity.

Choose a field: If you want to work in retail management, take any job you can find in that particular environment, and work your way up. If it means starting on the shop floor as a sales assistant, see it as experience you're notching up. Don't get stuck in a dead end job in a field in which you have no interest. Dead end jobs are fine for a while if you need the money to pay the rent, but don't get stuck there.

Offer your services for free: This one has been known to work over and over again. Choose a company you would really like to work for, make an appointment and offer to work for them free of charge for three months. Make yourself indispensable and be a willing workhorse – if anything comes up, chances are you will be first and foremost in their minds as a possible candidate.

Update your CV: Make sure your CV is up to date – if a job possibility suddenly appears out of the blue, you want to be able to produce a CV within half an hour. Waiting two days, while you put together a CV, might just cost you a job.

Get marketable skills: If your skills are not very marketable – after all, how many job opportunities are there for graduates in anthropology or sociology? – equip yourself with marketable skills. Do a desktop publishing course, become computer literate, do a secretarial course – do whatever it takes.

Start your own business: Rather than wait around for a job to appear, create your own. Figure out what is needed in your community – this could be from car washing to babysitting to teaching extra lessons – and do something about it. This need not cost you a fortune to set up – your biggest expense will probably be a cell phone and a pay-as-you go contract.

Do all work as well as you can: Whatever you are given to do, whether it is selling samoosas at the bazaar or looking after kids during church services, do it as well as you can. If you are enthusiastic and make an effort, someone is sure to notice sooner or later.

Be friendly, willing and presentable: If you get an interview, take out the tongue ring – keep in mind who is the one with most to lose here. The interviewer owes you nothing. Don't be a Moaning Minnie – no one wants to work with someone who complains about everything. To get the job, you often have to look the part – accept it
