Stella Appreciation Award for Most Foolish In the U.S Claims

Did you know? An award named Stella Award is given to the most stupid claims in the U.S.. They got a big compensation for their foolish own. Names Stella Award comes from Stella Liebeck.
81-year-old grandmother was spilling McDonald's coffee is bought in to his own. Liebeck bring a lawsuit against McDonald's and won. The case inspired the Stella is the existence of this award. The candidates for the Stella awards are:
1. Kathleen Robertson of Texas. Robertson won damages from the jury of $ 780,000 after he made a claim to a shop because the shop is perabot.Robertson claim broke his ankle after tripping boys are running around in the shop. Furniture store owner was very surprised on the decision, looking at boys who "stumble" is the offspring of Robertson himself.
2. Carl Truman of Los Angeles. Man 19-year-old won damages of $ 74,000 and the cost of health care after a neighbor's hand with a Honda Accord run over. Truman does not seem to realize that their neighbors are Accord owners are holding the steering wheel of the car when Truman tried to steal the car wheels.
3. Terrence Dickson of Bristol, Pennsylvania. Dickson was trying to leave the house he had just sacked the garage through the door. However, he can not make an automatic garage door that opens to the door because it is damaged. Dickson also can not be returned to the house. Because when he closed the door connecting the garage to the house, the door is locked automatically.
Since the family was on holiday home owners, Dickson stuck in the garage for eight days and survived by drinking Pepsi and eating a dog that he found the thief garaj.Dickson claim against the owner of the house and claimed that the incident resulted in him suffering from a mental disorder great. The jury agreed to provide $ 500,000 Dickson.
4. Jerry Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas. He won $ 14,500 damages and costs of medical treatment after being bitten by a dog back neighbors. Terantai dog itself in front of a neighbor's house. Eligible for the award given to Williams. The jury believes that the dog was probably little affected by the action of William who was then shot the dog with a rifle several times.
5. Amber Carson of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. A Philadelphia restaurant was ordered to pay a total of $ 113,500 in Carson after he fell into a puddle of soft drinks that causes bones broken arm. Drink it on the floor because Carson throws a drink at her boyfriend during a fight last 30 minutes.
6. Kara Walton of Delaware. Walton managed to make a claim against a night club when he fell to the floor of the toilet window of the night club. Breaking the incident causing two front teeth Walton. The incident happened when he tried to slip through the toilet window to avoid paying the cover charge of $ 3.50. He was given a compensation of U.S. $ 12,000 and dental expenses.
AND the winner is:

Merv Grazinsky of Oklahoma City. In November 2001, Grazinsky Winnebago buy a car caravan along about 9 meters. In his first trip to the house, he was the highway, listening to the radio while driving at a speed of 70 mph. Then it simply, Grazinsky leaving the bench behind the driver to make a cup of coffee.
Not surprisingly, the vehicle is out of the toll road and then collided tergolek. Grazinsky claim against the Winnebago for not mentioning in the user manual that the vehicle can not do that. He received compensation of $ 1,750,000 plus a new Winnebago. As a result of this case, Winnebago eventually change manualnya guides.

Malaysian newspaper pokes fun at recent tsunami disasters

iReport —
Local Malaysian newspaper Berita Harian published a caricature in their editor's column today that depicts the popular Japanese cartoon character Ultraman as trying to outrun an incoming tsunami.

The publication has received tremendous criticisms by readers, who accuse the editors as being "inconsiderate and distasteful". Several political leaders have even stepped out and demand a public apology, to which the editors promptly made on their publication's Facebook fan page.

Scientists Set Internet2 Speed Record
By Susan Kuchinskas

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) set a new land-speed record for Internet2, a second-generation network serving universities and research institutes.

The team, which included folks from AMD (Quote, Chart), Cisco (Quote, Chart), Microsoft Research, Newisys, and S2io, transferred 859 gigabytes of data in less than 17 minutes. It did so at a rate of 6.63 gigabits per second (define) between the CERN facility in Geneva, Switzerland, and Caltech in Pasadena, Calif., a distance of more than 15,766 kilometers, or approximately 9,800 miles.

Scientists are racing to move gigantic amounts of data by 2007, when CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will switch on. This huge underground particle accelerator will produce some 15 petabytes (define) of data a year, which will be stored and analyzed on a global grid of computer centers.

High-energy physicists are excited about the LHC because they hope it will allow them to find the Higgs boson, a theoretical particle that they believe creates mass.

"Physicists are trying to fill in the blank spaces in our model of high energy physics," said Jim Gray a Microsoft Research engineer who helped set Wednesday's record.

But this $10 billion collider will be of little use if scientists around the world can't access the data.

Researchers aren't the only ones excited about blazing data speeds. This record speed of 6.63Gbps is equivalent to transferring a full-length DVD movie in four seconds. There are uses in astronomy, bioinformatics, global climate modeling and seismology, as well as commercial applications from entertainment to oil and gas exploration.

Internet2 is fast -- Abilene, a U.S. cross-country backbone network, blasts data at 10Gbps. But transoceanic networking is another story. There are hardware and software issues to overcome, Gray said.

For example, one limiting factor is that the fastest available interface for PCs is the PCIX64 Bus Isolation Extender, which can only handle 7.5Gbps.

The land-speed test is part of an ongoing R&D program to create high-speed global networks as the foundation of next-generation, data-intensive grids with a goal of transferring data at 1Gbps.

The performance also is the first record to break the 100-petabit meter per second mark. One petabit is 1,000,000,000,000,000 bits (define). That may seem like an almost inconceivably large number, but Gray said storing petabits of data is a fact of life for many large corporations. He said Microsoft has about 5 petabits of data, and he estimates Google and Yahoo store that much, as well.

"If you have a million customers and they each have a gigabyte of storage, that's a petabit," he said.

The technology used in setting this record included S2io's Xframe 10 GbE server adapter, Cisco 7600 Series Routers, Newisys 4300 servers using AMD Opteron processors, Itanium servers and the 64-bit version of Windows Server 2003.

World's fastest internet connection 'used to dry laundry'

Last summer a 75-year-old woman from Karlstad became the envy of internet users worldwide.
With her blistering 40 gigabits per second connection, Sigbritt Löthberg had the world's fastest internet connection - many thousands of times faster than the average residential link and the first time ever that a home user had experienced such a high speed.

So, after nine months with the ability to download a full high definition DVD in just two seconds or access 1,500 high definition HDTV channels simultaneously, how has Sigbritt's life changed?

Not much, according to Hafsteinn Jonsson, who is heading up the fibre network operation for Karlstad Stadsnät.

"She mostly used it to dry her laundry," he told The Local.

"It was a big bit of gear and it got pretty warm."

Sigbritt's son, Swedish internet legend Peter Löthberg, was behind the project, which was intended to demonstrate how a low price, high capacity fibre line could be built over long distances. Löthberg has now taken the equipment up to Luleå, in the north of Sweden, for further testing.

"The project was a huge success," said Hafsteinn Jonsson, who explained that his department now measures its history in terms of 'Before Sigbritt and After Sigbritt'.

"Apart from the death of Ingmar Bergman, this was the biggest story to come out of Sweden in 2007. We used to get all these detailed questions about what we're working on - now we just mention Sigbritt and everybody understands."

The secret behind the ultra-fast connection is a new modulation technique which allows data to be transferred directly between two routers up to 2,000 kilometres apart, with no intermediary transponders.

According to Karlstad Stadsnät the distance is, in theory, unlimited - there is no data loss as long as the fibre is in place.

Sigbritt may have been denied her world-beating internet link but she still has an admirable 10 gigabits per second connection. And there may be another surprise in store for her.

"We're considering giving her a 100 gigabits per second connection in the summer," said Hafsteinn Jonsson.

"Then she'll be able to dry all her neighbours' laundry too."
