How to Take Care of an Askal Puppy

[ via eHow ]

Askal Puppy
Keeping pets is a favourite hobby world wide. Starting from cats and dogs to many type of birds, reptiles, even snakes, and other animals, including deadly lions, has a limitless list. But while keeping pets is a healthy hobby, it is also necessary to keep the pets healthy and in shape as their ill health is only only damaging to the pets and a source of spread of diseases. but also an injustice to the pet, totally dependent on its master.

It is in this regard that when I came across this post about how to take care of an Askal puppy, that I thought of sharing it with my hobbyists for better care of their Askal puppies.

An Askal puppy is a type of mixed breed dog that comes from the Philippines. An Askal puppy is also known as a mongrel. These puppies often have a more resilient nature than purebred pups and have been used in the Philippines as bomb sniffing dogs.

Incredible Armored Cars from Latvian Manufacturer Dartz: For Super-Rich Only

Sometime back, I wrote about the hobby of collecting cars - not dinkies, but real cars. It said that the brother of King of Brunei has so many cars hat if started to drive a car daily from his fleet, it would take him 7 years before he runs out of new cars. But by then, many more would have been added to his fleet.

There I was talking of expensive cars. But what about special cars that only kings and presidents get to use? A report says that the days of members of the mafia driving a blacked out Cadillac or dictators riding in a large Mercedes may be coming to an end.

Thanks to Latvian manufacturer Dartz, anyone that needs extra protection can now have the armored car they desire, according to CarBuzz.

Instead of the run-of-the-mill armored BMW or Mercedes, Dartz builds bespoke armored cars for the most discerning tastes with some of the most unique features we've ever seen.

How to roast a prime rib

The holiday season is on around the world, specially in Europe and Americas, whee people in snow December flock the dinner tables full with steamy turkeys and other delights. 

Photo Courtesy: LA Times
While housewives are busy finding new recipes for this winter, I found this one and it is really mouth watering. The trick of roasting the ribs lies in concentrating on low and slow. Because these roasts are so huge and have so much mass, you want to cook them for a long time at a fairly low temperature in order to ensure you get an even range of doneness.

The other trick is being sure to let them rest for at least half an hour before carving. This allows the juices in the meat to settle back in, meaning there'll be more on the plate and less on the carving board.

Oh, what about the recipe? Read LA Times

How to install and Download Asphalt 6 apk

Picked this up on the Daily Dime Deals the other day . After downloading it and waiting till i had a wifi connection (and thus going over the refund period) it says it's not compatible with my DesireZ.. however I did not give up and after connecting to a different wifi connection, it worked just fine.. I guess there's some type of bug(?) that in certain instances where the wifi connection is not good, it tells you it's not compatible with your device.. so if you have this problem i suggest you try a different wifi connection.. it is working perfectly fine on my phone now..

Didn't know games can be that good on these mobile devices. Graphics are beatiful and it still runs smoothly, gameplay is a lot of fun - many modes, lots of licensed cars with items for them to unlock and add as you progress in career mode, handling is very good (accelometer works great on my device). Feels like lots of work and attention to details was put to the game. Definitely worth every cent. Highly recommended.

You can watch this this video to have a bigger idea about the game.

Amazing Nebula discovered by NASA -a Christmas find?

NASA scientists were in a very festive mood on Friday 23 Dec 2011, releasing an amazing image of a nebula they nicknamed the 'wreath nebula.' 

NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) is getting into a festive mood this Christmas after imaging a beautiful nebula called Barnard 3, or IRAS Ring G159.6-18.5. Nicknamed the "Wreath Nebula" by mission scientists, Bernard 3 does have some familiarity with the green and red wreath hanging peacefully on your neighbor's door. But looks can be deceiving.

The scene looks like a ring of evergreens decorated with a red Christmasy bow with silver bells throughout. It was captured by NASA's WISE space telescope.

Download RedSnow 0.9.9b9d For Untethered Jailbreak iOS 5.0.1 Fix on iPhone 3GS Old Bootrom

[ via Chip Hazard ] 22 Dec

MuscleNerd has just tweeted moments ago which addresses an issue with iPhone 3GS users with an old bootrom. Apparently the old-bootrom 3GS users who are luck enough to enjoy the untethered experience are facing problems when doing the jailbreak with the previous RedSnow version, says Wahaab JB of Chip Hazard. 
This problem has been fixed in their new version for RedSnow 0.9.9b9d which is recommended by the renowned hacker in order to successfully jailbreak the device. After downloading and installing the jailbreak, then proceed with the UltraSnow unlocking procedure with your iPhone.
The procedure is simple, after downloading the latest Rednow version from the direct links given below launch the tool and goto Extras->IPSW and manually select the 5.0.1 IPSW, then go back and Jailbreak it again. This version doesn’t provide the untethered jailbreak for any other device at the moment, that jailbreak will be provided at the moment by just pod2g in the coming days.
Following are the links for download and use UltraSnow after jailbreaking the device from this tool.

Top 6 Crazy Tech Predictions for 2012

Guessing and predicting is one of the most "liked" hobby of almost everyone around the world. But when technological knowledge is coupled with the ability to guess by reading things in between the lines, these look like authentic news. This post is about one such guessing.

We live in a world of absolutes: Here’s what happened. Even when we look to the future, our predictions are couched in the world’s sometimes difficult realities. It can, to be honest, take all the fun out of guess work. So, once a year I allow myself to go beyond the likely, beyond the possible and deep into the world of the implausible. 

What follows are my most ridiculous and unlikely predictions. Most are just nuts, but one is, to be honest, all too scarily possible. See if you can guess which prediction I’m talking about, says  at Mashable.

  • Facebook Buys Digg
  • Scientists and Hollywood Develop New Way to End Movies
  • SOPA Becomes the Law of the land
  • Apple Intros a 5-inch Tablet Phone Hybrid
  • Google+ Takes Center Stage
  • Honda Releases Asimo to Consumers

Hubble offers glimpse of the dawn of time

[ via Mail Online ]

Scientists still have only seen glimpses of the 'cosmic dawn', when stars were forming in the calm, dark cosmos.

A researcher at the University of Tokyo has found the most vigorous star-forming galaxy yet seen from the cold, dark period just after the Big Bang - a large mass of gas forming stars at a rate of around a hundred suns per year
An international team lead by Masami Ouchi of the University of Tokyo has found the most vigorous star-forming galaxy yet seen from the period - a huge mass of gas forming stars at a rate of around a hundred suns per year.

It's one of the most distant galaxies ever seen by mankind - and it's also unique. Although nine galaxies have been detected from the period just after Big Bang, the 750-million-year-old GN-108036 was forming stars far faster than the others, when most of the universe was still cold and dark.
