How to measure life - by George Carlin



We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."

Formula 1: New Season, New Rules, New Team, New Winner



From worst to first! Brawn Grand Prix has done it! And a storybook one-two finish no less!!

Just a few months ago, Honda dropped a nuke on the Formula One community by pulling out of the sport when it was most needed. The Honda brand had been a horrible debacle the last two seasons, though many believed that their addition of former Ferrari man Ross Brawn would pay some dividends in 2009. Yet, Honda lost faith and gave up on their Formula One program.

But Brawn Grand Prix was born because the team believed in themselves. And how!

Today at Albert Park, Brawn Grand Prix grabbed a 1-2 finish at the Australian Grand Prix in their debut Formula 1 race. Jenson Button easily earned the second win of his Formula One career –and 200th win for a British driver – there is no disputing that. The veteran F1 driver drove exceptionally well from the pole position he earned yesterday in an exceptionally well prepared car. The Briton’s performance put the exclamation point on the great work done by the Brawn organization… They ought thought the rest of the paddock in the off-season, and have completely changed the order of things in Formula One.

Button said of his day, “It always looks easier than it is! When the safety car came out, I struggled massively to get heat into the tires. Just before the safety car pulled in, I flat spotted the tire so I struggled with a nasty vibration. Being in the front should be easy, but it was not easy at all!”
“It’s been a traumatic few months for all of us, but I don’t care! I won the race today, and that’s all I care about!”

For Rubens Barrichello, it was a wild day getting to the podium. While it might have been expected that the Brazilian would cruise around in second following his teammate home after a nice quiet Sunday drive in the park… instead he had a more dramatic day planned.

Barrichello was slow off the starting grid, and slipped back at the start after he hit anti-stall and the car went into neutral. Under braking, Barrichello would not be denied entering turn one. He muscled his way through, knocking the BMW of Nick Heidfeld into the McLaren of Heikki Kovalainen. Barrichello got the best of it with a front wing that held!

Rubens said of his day, “It’s strong, very strong! I was hit from behind, I hit someone in the front, it was a tough race! I thought the car was done. The first stint my nose was falling apart. I had a lot of mixed emotions during the race. “

Though he didn’t think he could get back to the front and finish on the podium, Barrichello skillfully worked his back up through the field as the race wore on. His front wing was replaced during a lengthy first pitstop caused by Nakajima when his Williams ended the day with its nose in the wall after rolling badly off the curbing. Luckily, the Williams driver was uninjured because he held onto the wheel during the contact. Numerous drivers have broken their wrists by doing so.

But the initial bad luck turned into further good luck for Barrichello.

With just three laps to go, BMW’s Robert Kubica was following the Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel and attempted to make a late pass. It all went wrong as Vettel defended his position, and both cars were slammed into the wall. Both cars limped around – with Vettel’s eventually stopping at the side of the track - but each of their great days were ruined for themselves, and for their teams.

Short rant - It was another great example of why Formula One should NOT shorten these races! How many times in the last few years has there been great drama following the final pitstops! Apparently old guys like Flavio Briatore who miss their afternoon naps don’t pay well enough attention to understand that concept….

But I digress.

As for the future… Maybe Brawn GP can find further hope and good fortune. Every time that a Formula One team has taken a 1-2 at Melbourne, the winning driver has won the F1 driver’s championship, and the winning constructor has won the constructor’s championship.

The 2009 Formula One season has started like no other in recent memory. Controversy is already fully upon us as the costly shake-up in the regulations has led to much uncertainty since the FIA hasn’t fully clarified the rules before the first race. With the ban on in-season testing, it will be extremely difficult for any of the trailing F1 teams to re-design their cars to catch up.

So expect a very hard fight on April 14th when the World Motorsport council will decide if Brawn GP have built a better car and if they will get to keep their fabulous win, or if the FIA will steal their victory based on hollow complaints from those who were beaten by a better designed race car.

Single Use is Not an Option



Modern living has brought us many disposable products, ranging from diapers to cameras, for the sake of our convenience, unfortunately at the expense of the earth's sustainability. Never ever use disposable products unless it is truly necessary. Using disposable products is no longer a sign of modern living.

A bright shining Light



Compact Fluorescent Light bilbs (CFL) is such a fantastic invention! Compared to incandescent lights bulbs , CFL uses only less than a quarter of the electricity to give us the same brightness while lasting up to 10 times longer. Replacing 4 incandescent light bilbs with CFL will reduce almost half tons of CO2 emission every year.

The Earth is a Fashion Victim



Actually, it is not the person wearing out-of-date clothing, accessories or gadgets that become a fashion victim. It is earth that suffers from our consumptive behavior. If you feel like trowing away old unwanted stuffs, please give it to charity, or maybe you can sell it and make a small fortune out of it!

No Car Day is a Good Day



COnsider this, every liter petrol used in a car produces 2 kb CO2 emitted into the air. There's a lot we can do to make it up. Always prefer small cars, do car polling at your office, take a bike if you want to go within cycling distance, unload unnecessary things from your car, use public transportation in your leisure time, and many more!

More Than Just Electricity Bill



Turning off lamps in empty room, unplugging unused electronic appliances, using only energy savers, such as solar water heaters, and so on, will benefit you more than reducing your electricity bill. If every house in the world saves its energy use, imagine how much energy we can save!

Less Paper is Better



Papper is one of the largest items that most households and offices consume. Sadly, most paper production comes from the forest and requires large amount of water in processing. Reducing paper use in our home and at the office, for example by using both sides of paper when printing, will be of great help in saving our planet.

MY INDONESIAN MAID SHARED WITH ME A WEEK AGO THAT SHE TESTED A WAY TO PRESERVE FRUITS AND VEGITABLES, WHICH SHE SAID WAS ONE OF MY AUNTY WHO TAUGHT HER WHEN SHE BABY-SIT AT ONE FAMILY IN KL. THAT FAMILY WAS USING 'ALUMINUM COATED PLASTIC BAGS' TO KEEP THEIR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES FOR WEEKS AND ITS STILL FRESH!!! ITS SOO AMAZING.

HERE IS THE KIND OF ALUMINIUM COATED PLASTIC BAG FROM QUAKER. YOU CAN USE ANY OTHER ALUMINIUM COATED BAG WOULD DO.
