Cylcing for Gaza - Funds needed

It is now official
In solidarity with the people of Gaza, I am particiapting in a fund raising cycling event.
Cycling 4 Gaza aims to raise awareness about the ongoing suffering in Gaza by bringing together a group of people from all over the world each year to cycle across continents, with the ultimate aim of reaching Gaza. (www.cycle4gaza.com).
Last year, Cycling 4 Gaza brought together 27 people of all ages and backgrounds to take part
in the challenge of cycling from London to Paris. We covered over 300 km in 3 days, and raised
over £90,000 for Medical Aid for Palestinians in support of their healthcare projects in Gaza.
These included emergency maternal and newborn healthcare, specialist burns care training, and training staff in primary trauma care. This year, and
Between the 29th of September and the 2nd of October, we will be embarking on a tough hysical and mental challenge, cycling from Pisa to Rome in just 4 days.

Sudoku

Like me, you are most likely inclined to believing Sudoku is some kind of an ancient Japanese game. In fact it was created by an American architect Howard Garns.
Garns was born in Connersville, Indiana, and by his teens had moved to Indianapolis with his father, W. H. Garns, an architect. He attended Indianapolis Technical High School (now known as Arsenal Technical High School or Tech High School) and graduated in 1922. He entered the University of Illinois, and received a Bachelor of Science in architectural engineering in 1926.
The game was initially called Number Place and. Number Place gained popularity in Japan in the eighties. Garns dies before Su Doku became popular on the global realm

Android -- Cannot afford not to learn

It is enough to know that Andoroid mobile platform sales have overtaken that of iphone, coupled with the ubiquity of cell phones, the backing of a corporate giant "Google", the excitement of open source and the support of Open Handset Alliance members like Intel, TI, T-Mobile, and NTT DoCoMo makes a perfect recipe for this OS to rule supreme.
That was enough to spark my curiosity to explore my new toy; Android development
Download Eclispe, Andorid SDK and a few tutorials from the net and you are all set to prepare yourself for a new generation of mobile computing. Trust me on this one
