X'mas Ham image
In ancient Norse tradition, "a boar's head with apple in mouth was carried into the banquet hall on a gold or silver dish to the sounds of trumpets and the songs of minstrels." This was probably how the tradition of serving ham during Christmas started. [1][2]

Now, Christmas won't be the same without ham, but have you wondered where the ham come from and how? Recently I wrote a review on the book "The Compassionate Carnivore" which describes the horrible conditions of factory farms i...

Healthy Aging and Longer Life--Better Chances Now

Posted by K K THAM on Monday, December 7, 2009, In : Healthy Aging 
We now have a new demographic group, the Supercentenarians - people aged 110 or over - which did not exist in the 1970s or 80s.

It is estimated that there are about 60,000 centenarians in the U.S. with up to 70 supercentenarians. Researchers are saying that centenarians may possess genes that protect them from disease into old age.   By understanding the underlying biology of aging, it may be possible to develop drugs in the future that will promote healthy aging and delay age-related diseases...

I Started a Mirror Blog at Wordpress

Posted by K K THAM on Wednesday, December 2, 2009, In : IT 
I started having my website and blog hosted by Yola three months ago and I am satisfied with the ease in operating it.  The support team at Yola is also very friendly and when I had a recent problem, they solved it within 48 hours.

Yesterday, I started another blog in WordPress for two reasons:  Firstly, I feel more secure having my  blog  "mirrored" on another website  (not that I have any complaints about Yola) and secondly, I understand that having an inward link to my site at Yola would im...

Notes on Brick Walls

When clearing my bookshelf, I came across an old book published in 2010, The Last Lecture, which was an International Bestseller at that time, having sold five million copies.  Flipping through the pages that had turned yellow, this quote struck a chord in me because only recently I was discussing with a friend how to handle brick walls that attempt to stop us.

Flee 9 to 5

Whether you are retired, retrenched or re-organizing your career choice, the book Flee 9 to 5, Get 6 - 7 figures and do what you love by Ben Angel provides plenty of suggestions.

I particularly like the Six publicity formulas you can use to help you get more media coverage at page 143.

It happens. It happens every day. People grow apart. Friends walk hand in hand until they find that their parts no longer intertwine. Lovers kiss to notice that this kiss that once meant weak knees and beating hearts no longer tastes of sweet love but of bitter goodbye. You once poured your heart out to the boy who was your best friend but when you see him again, it’s like the silence swallows you whole and you can’t think of one word to say. So you stare and stare and try to figure out what happened to create this chasm, this black abyss that opened up between you. And most of the time it’s not an argument that tore you apart but life itself. It’s you and it’s them. You changed. You grew up. You made decisions. You moved on. Things that used to mean the world now mean nothing and people that used to make you feel like you could climb the highest mountain now make you feel like drowning at the bottom of the sea. And that’s okay. Because people come and people go and it happens for a reason. Some friendships aren’t meant to last a lifetime, some people can’t be kept, some relationships aren’t worth holding on to. So let go. If they don’t make you happy anymore, let them go.
