Spidey Game - Double Wires

Some of the games out there on World Wide Web are truly good and allow you to pass some time when you get really bored and you are not in the right frame of mind to do any mind bending work. One such game I found was Double Wires. An exciting game based on Spiderman capabilities. You need to swing from one cliff to another using two elastic sticky wires that you can throw at the cliffs and get hooked on. Hope the game gets you hooked on too.

Kimchee - Dangerously Healthy Food :-)

In Korea do as the Koreans do. Well, being a vegetarian, the best I could do to emulate the Korean lifestyle was to try out their dish, Kimchee. Kimchee, also spelled gimchi or kimchi is a traditional Korean dish of fermented vegetables seasoned with chili peppers and salt.

So famous has this dish become over the years that
  • English has borrowed the word 'KimChi' from this dish. The phrase "in deep kimchi" is sometimes used to describe a person in a perilous situation.
  • It is served as a mandatory dish in Korean Airlines and Asiana airways, the two official international airways of the Republic of Korea.
The basic ingredient is usually a variety of Chinese cabbage called napa cabbage and/or white radish, seasoned with chili pepper, garlic, scallion, ginger, salt, and sugar. Though there are hundreds of variations, most types of kimchi tend to have a strong, spicy, tangy flavour and odour.

Kimchi was profiled by Health Magazine as one of the world's five "healthiest foods" for being rich in vitamins,
  • aiding in digestion, and
  • even possibly preventing cancer.
The health properties of kimchi are due to a variety of factors.
  • Most types of kimchi contain common ingredients like onions, garlic and peppers all of which have well-known health benefits.
  • The main vegetable being made into kimchi also contributes to the overall nutritional value. Kimchi is rich in vitamin A, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), calcium and iron and
  • also beneficial bacterial cultures of Lactobacilli which results in a higher lactic acid content in the final product than in yoghurt.
So remember, when in Korea, don't miss on giving your health a much needed boost by savouring Kimchee. Three cheers to to Kimchee !!!

Stories that Statistics tell

What do statistics tell us? One might say "Nothing", unless someone breathes life into them and gets them to tell a story. Well, that's exactly what a professor, Hans Rosling from Monterey, California has done.
