Wasps for detecting biological weapons….

Did you know that wasps could be trained to detect biological weapons…..did you know that dogs could be trained to smell out cancer in human beings ???

Do we understand what this signifies in terms of human evolution….?

We, homo sapiens, have started using animals like we used devices earlier…at this rate, we could be using everything that is out there — living and non-living – in our struggle for survival…we could be moulding this planet to help suit our survival needs. The pathos of this is that we are fast moving away from what we would like to call a eggregious existence — in short we are acting God.

Irrespective of what humanists and animal right activists would like us to believe, we are living in a world where human might is supreme… we were always ahead in the evolution race — but now we have reached a scenario where we are the masters of all we survey.
We create hybrids by cross-breeding different species, we can clone animals…we can use animals to do what we can never do ourselves — we have learnt to use their sense of smell, their instincts, their behaviour patterns…everything….

I dont know where this post is going…but hopefully, it will evolve in due course….till then….

freeze..de-freeze … re-freeze …re-de-freeze…

freeze..de-freeze … re-freeze …re-de-freeze…
That’s what the Indian government is doing with Ottavio Quattorochi’s accounts
First, the background : Ottavio Quattorochi is the prime accused in the Bofors kickbacks case — simply put, he was paid by Bofors to swing the deal in favour of the Swedish gun manufacturer.The fact that he is close friends with the Gandhi family is the real cause of his star status among the other accused.
First we let this guy go out of the country (Congress — PV Narsimha Rao govt), then we froze his bank accounts in the UK (NDA govt), then we requested the British to defreeze his accounts (UPA govt — Manmohan Singh )…and now we after getting a kick in the backside from the Supreme Court , we are asking the British to re-freeze those accounts…
The British have refused…even funnier is the fact that Mr Q has emptied those accounts by now !!!
You have got to really enjoy this comedy show. Two Italians are currently running the country — one is running the politics and the other is running the finances…and what are we doing?
freeze, de-freeze, re-freeze…
Politicians must think we are all really dumb or something …we cannot conduct a investigation without making a fool of ourselves and we are gunning for UN Security Council seat (with veto powers, if I may add) …Hope they are not joking about this on Letterman/Leno …

Eight years in jail after acquital !!!

Man spends eight years in
jail
— just
because the jail authorities did not get the acquital order from the court !!!
Now, how ridiculous is that …that’s what I thought when I saw (or is heard?) the news
this morning….Come to think of it, it is more worrisome than ridiculous….the mere fact that an order
could not reach from the court to the jail in eight years is staggering to say the
least…I mean, how the hell ??? how bad can our administrative departments be ????
But lets cut to the human aspect of the whole thing…the jail authorities must have
known very well that the court has acquitted the man. They must have found it surprising
that the order has not reached them…wouldn’t any normal human being ask why it has not
reached him? If I were to get my salary slip late, I would call up ten people to figure
out what is wrong… but I wouldn’t bother if someone’s acquital orders did not reach me
???It takes extra-ordinary people to keep mum for so long…I mean eight years do not pass
by in a flash…not in our jails (not that I have been in a jail before, but you get my
point..) didnt the man understand that he was free to go? did he never ask why he was
still detained? was his voice squashed by the jail authorities? was there no one to help
him?
Currently, the man is filing for compensation for the whole matter…wonder how long
that will take ???
