Planning to buy a CAR?

Slowdown signs – Car sales dip in US, EU and Australia – 16 Feb 2009

Planning to buy a CAR?… let’s find out what is happening around the world of automobiles and it’s tsumani big wave about to hit us soon….

It is reported that the credit crunch and global recession continues to destroy demand for cars in the US, Europe and Australia. German car sales, registrations and exports all fell by 14% or more in January 2009, while Australian car sales fell by more than 18% in January 2009.

US car sales fell by 38% in January 2009, worse than expected and even worse than the terrible 36% plunge in December. Chinese sales are falling, 2008 sales rose 6.7% on 2007 when they jumped by more than 21%. They were supposed to hit an annual 10 million by the end of last year, but instead 9.5 million were sold.

Figures overnight from the US confirm a further slump in car sales last month, with the annual rate put at 9.8 million units, the lowest since 1963. The news from GM for January was terrible. Sales were down by 49%, while Ford saw a 40% plunge. Toyota was down 34%, Honda, 28%. Nissan was off 30%. But the worst was Chrysler with sales off a huge 55%.

All this means that for those getting bullish about steel, coal, iron ore and the like, think again. With construction down, and cars in a big mess, there’s no sign of any concerted demand for steel or its raw materials. _

THIS ILLUSTRATES THE SERIOUSNESS OF THE ECONOMY EVERYONE WILL SUFFER AROUND THE WORLD

Sales of new cars in the UK have slumped to a 12-year-low and production of cars at Honda in Swindon has been halted for a unprecedented four-month period because of the collapse in global sales and represents the longest continuous halt in production at any UK car plant.

The announcement comes on a day when the EU’s Industry Commissioner Guenter Verheugen warned the outlook for the European car industry was ‘brutal’ and predicted not all European manufacturers would survive the economic downturn.

The Sour Sop

THE SOUR SOP

I receive this email from a friend and Malaysian,this miracle tree that has all the extracts to cure cancer is in almost  everyone’s backyard. This tree can grow almost anywhere in malaysia, in hokkien we call it “AngMo Durian” which most of us just ignore or dislike it’s sour taste. It’s about time you plant this tree if you have a small garden.

This time let me pass some very useful and informative Health related subject…read it carefully and if you believe it is good ,pass to your friends.

Natural Cancer KILLER – 10,000 times stronger than Chemo and more….. How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree? If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it’s the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.

The truth is stunningly simple:

Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising. Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to… Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America ‘s largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970’s! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing…

Extracts from the tree were shown to:

Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer. The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug! What’s more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!

The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched–so why haven’t you heard anything about it?

If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be–why doesn’t every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients? The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health–and for many, our very lives(!)--are controlled by money and power.

Graviola–the plant that worked too well One of America ‘s biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.

Various parts of the Graviola tree–including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds–have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree’s anti-cancerous properties–and were shocked by the results.

Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo. But that’s where the Graviola story nearly ended. The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree–it’s completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it. It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree’s most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they’d be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research. As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!

Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn’t let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that’s dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.

Miracle unleashed

When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola–and its shocking cover-up–came in fast and furious… …

The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola’s “leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells.” Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public… …Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests, yet no double-blind clinical trials–the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment’s value–were ever initiated… …

A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at “10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin…” …The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients. …

A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers… Seven years of silence broken–it’s finally here! A limited supply of Graviola extract, grown and harvested by indigenous people in Brazil , is finally available in America .

The full Graviola story–including where you can get it and how to use it–is included in Beyond Chemotherapy: New Cancer Killers, Safe as Mother’s Milk, a Health Sciences Institute FREE special bonus report on natural substances that will effectively revolutionize the fight against cancer.

We begin this New Year with dampened enthusiasm and dented optimism. Our happiness is diluted and our peace is threatened by the financial illness that has infected our families, organizations and nations. Everyone is desperate to find a remedy that will cure their financial illness and help them recover their financial health. They expect the financial experts to provide them with remedies, forgetting the fact that it is these experts who created this financial mess.

Every new year, I adopt a couple of old maxims as my beacons to guide my future. This self-prescribed therapy has ensured that with each passing year, I grow wiser and not older. This year, I invite you to tap into the financial wisdom of our elders along with me, and become financially wiser.

* Hard work: All hard work bring a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.

* Laziness: A sleeping lobster is carried away by the water current.

* Earnings: Never depend on a single source of income. Let your investments get you a second source of earnings

* Spending: If you buy things you don’t need, you’ll soon sell things you need.

* Savings: Don’t save what is left after spending; spend what is left after saving.

* Borrowings: The borrower becomes the lender’s slave.

* Accounting: It’s no use carrying an umbrella, if your shoes are leaking.

* Auditing: Beware of the little expenses; A small leak can sink a large ship.

* Risk-taking: Never test the depth of the river with both feet. Have an alternate plan ready

* Investments: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

I’m certain that those who have already been practicing these principles remain financially healthy. I’m equally confident that those who resolve to start practicing these principles will quickly
regain their financial health.

Let us become wiser and lead a happy, healthy, prosperous and peaceful life.

A friend send me this article and I just want to share with you.

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about    Heart Attacks . The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this ‘sludge’ reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

C ommon Symptoms Of Heart Attack…

heart-attack1

A serious note about heart attacks – You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting . Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line .

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let’s be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.

A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we’ll save at least one life. Read this & Send this link to a friend. It could save a life. So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about.

Holy man
starring Eddie Murphy

I have seen this movie several times already and everytime when I watch, I would still laugh at the comedy part of the movie. But this movie is more then a comedy, if you can understand the essence of what the movie is all about.

His simple life makes us feel that life should be lived in this way. Simple and enjoyable and you will seem to have everything you ever need.

He wants nothing and he willingly gives everything. He can have everything we normal people yearns to have but it’s means nothing to him. His purity and pure love radiates and everyone could feel it.

If you want to enjoy everything in your life, you must yearn for nothing..

When you want nothing, everything is yours hehehe.

Rather complicated isn’t it hehe
