Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg speaks at a news conference where he unveiled a new Facebook messaging system in San Francisco, California November 15, 2010


Facebook’s move to the top spot shows just how quickly the site has grown in popularity. Within the span of six years, Facebook has become the world’s largest Web social network with roughly half a billion users worldwide.

Google.com dominated the top spot as the most visited website in the United States in 2009 and 2008. News Corp’s MySpace was the No. 1 visited website in 2007. It is ranked No. 7.

However, when all of Google’s properties are considered — such as YouTube and email, for instance — Google still reigns as the most visited site at 9.9 percent between January and November 2010. Facebook follows at 8.9 percent. Yahoo and all of its properties ranked third at 8.1 percent. ( Reuters )

Help Ease Morning Sickness

Help Ease Morning Sickness — Nausea and vomiting are common among pregnant women. Although these symptoms often are dubbed morning sickness, they can last all day.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to help alleviate morning sickness:


https://i1.wp.com/www.dad.ie/uploads/images/article/morning%20sickness%20photo.jpg

  • Prepare several small meals during the day to prevent getting too hungry or too full.
  • Stick to bland and lighter foods, rather than those high in fat, grease, or spices.
  • Don’t eat anything with a smell that bothers you or makes you feel nauseous.
  • Choose carbohydrates such as white rice or a plain baked potato.
  • Keep some saltine crackers next to your bed, and munch on a few before you rise from bed each morning.
  • Consider wearing acupressure wrist bands, used by some people to prevent sea sickness.
  • Some women are bothered by iron in their prenatal vitamins. If this includes you, speak to your doctor. ( HealthDay News )

A small tornado hit Jakarta on Tuesday, damaging more than 50 houses and knocking down dozens of trees. No injuries were reported.

The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency said Thursday that low air pressure moving into the region from northern Australia has made conditions rife for tornadoes to form in this city of 13 million people. Tornadoes are common in Indonesia, but rarely hit Jakarta. ( AP )

The 88-year-old was rushed back to the same hospital who had earlier declared her dead.

Doctors declared Maria das Dores dead on Dec 22



Officials in Brazil have now launched an investigation into how medical chiefs failed to realise the woman was alive and not dead when they sent her body for burial.

She had been brought to the hospital in the town of Ipatinga suffering from blocked arteries. She also suffered from Alzheimer’s and was bedridden.

Doctors declared her dead on Dec 22 after noticing she had no vital signs.

Her body was transferred to a local undertakers to prepare her for burial.

An official looking into her coffin noticed she was still breathing and that she had moved.

Custodia Amancio, daughter of the resuscitated Brazilian woman, said: “We are happy to know my mother is alive and unhappy with the lack of respect due her. We are still not sure if we will sue the municipality and hospital.

“She continues in the intensive ward treatment ward and we are praying that she will improve quickly.” ( telegraph.co.uk )

The chupacabra Legend

The chupacabra Legend -The word comes from two Spanish words – ‘chupar’, to suck, and ‘cabra’, goat.

Popular legend uses the phrase to describe unknown animals that attack livestock, usually goats, and allegedly drink the animal’s blood.

The first alleged sighting was in 1995 in Puerto Rico, but reports have been made from as far north as Maine, U.S., to the south of Chile.

https://i0.wp.com/i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/12/27/article-1341920-0C9661B0000005DC-575_634x351.jpg

The bald, grey-skinned creature was shot and killed in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky, after it emerged from woodland into the garden of a home

Scientists this year speculated that the creatures could be coyotes infected by parasites after one animal was discovered in July following a fatal attack on livestock.

In 1995, eight sheep were found dead in Puerto Rico with near identical puncture wounds to the chest and completely drained of blood which spawned the legend of the chupacabra in Latin America.

Months later, the creature was allegedly spotted in Canóvanas, where as many as 150 animals had been killed.

Since then there have been attacks allegedly carried about the legendary creature across South and Central America, and even into New Mexico and Texas.

Descriptions of the chupacabra vary from reptilian with spikes or quills on its back to hairless dogs with fangs and claws ( dailymail )
