Origin of Thanksgiving Day

Author: ambulance // Category:
Thanksgiving is America's preeminent day. It is celebrated every year on the fourth Thursday in the month of November. It has a very interesting history. Its origin can be traced back to the 16th century when the first thanksgiving dinner is said to have taken place.

Journey of Pilgrims
The legendary pilgrims, crossed the Atlantic in the year 1620 in Mayflower-A 17th Century sailing vessel. About 102 people traveled for nearly two months with extreme difficulty. This was so because they were kept in the cargo space of the sailing vessel. No one was allowed to go on the deck due to terrible storms. The pilgrims comforted themselves by singing Psalms- a sacred song.

Arrival in Plymouth
The pilgrims reached Plymouth rock on December 11th 1620, after a sea journey of 66 days. Though the original destination was somewhere in the northern part of Virginia, they could not reach the place owing to winds blowing them off course. Nearly46 pilgrims died due to extreme cold in winter. However, in the spring of 1621, Squanto, a native Indian taught the pilgrims to survive by growing food.

Day of Fasting and Prayer
In the summer of 1621, owing to severe drought, pilgrims called for a day of fasting and prayer to please God and ask for a bountiful harvest in the coming season. God answered their prayers and it rained at the end of the day. It saved the corn crops.

First Thanksgiving Feast
It is said that Pilgrims learnt to grow corn, beans and pumpkins from the Indians, which helped all of them survive . In the autumn of 1621, they held a grand celebration where 90 people were invited including Indians. The grand feast was organized to thank god for his favors. This communal dinner is popularly known as “The first thanksgiving feast”. There is however, no evidence to prove if the dinner actually took place.

While some historians believe pilgrims were quite religious so, their thanksgiving would've included a day of fasting and praying, others say that the Thanksgiving dinner did take place.

Turkey and First Thanksgiving Feast
There is no evidence to prove if the customary turkey was a part of the initial feast. According to the first hand account written by the leader of the colony, the food included, ducks, geese, venison, fish, berries etc.

Pumpkin and Thanksgiving Feast
Pumpkin pie, a modern staple adorning every dinner table, is unlikely to have been a part of the first thanksgiving feast. Pilgrims however, did have boiled pumpkin. Diminishing supply of flour led to the absence of any kind of bread.

The feast continued for three days and was eaten outside due to lack of space. It was not repeated till 1623, which again witnessed a severe drought. Governor Bradford proclaimed another day of thanksgiving in the year 1676. October of 1777 witnessed a time when all the 13 colonies joined in a communal celebration. It also marked the victory over the British.

After a number of events and changes, President Lincoln proclaimed last Thursday in November of thanksgiving in the year 1863. This was due to the continuous efforts of Sarah Josepha Hale, a magazine editor. She wrote a number of articles for the cause.

In the U.S. market, iPhone bundled with operators only after the price of 199 U.S. dollars, but in mainland China, to break the price of iPhone version of parallel basic more than 4000 yuan. In accordance with the expected introduction of iPhone in China Unicom after the mobile phone may provide a subsidy, which will further boost phone sales in the Chinese market growth.

China Unicom plans to postpone the introduction of In order to counter China Mobile and China Telecom, China Unicom through the iPhone has been hoping to strengthen the influence of 3G mobile phones. In particular, China Mobile and Apple negotiations break down, as China Unicom with Apple to clear away the obstacles to cooperation.

I am still looking forward to their 15-minute video for people familiar with the work, in order to speed up the process, I began to try to video posted to the popular YouTube Web site full of this world-famous video sharing Web site claims that its daily release of the number of new video as much as 65,000.

I use a portable MiniDV (Mini-cameras) to film and video editing software with the amendment, with a view to optimize the effect, but the time required for the whole process, I often exceed the acceptable limit, which makes me eager to find a way to streamline the procedures process to improve the processing speed but at the same time ensure a high video quality but also the hardware and software combination, which is why I believe that the future of "fans" who have longed for.

Although I could not even a "fan" did not, but I Testing Center where the analysts do not mind; the contrary, they made me very interested in different devices, agreed to five categories of products for testing, they are: approachable price of the Canon Elura 100 MiniDV Camcorder, Creative Live Cam Optia Webcam network camera, aimed at children of Digital Blue American Idol Digital Camera, Palm Treo 750 camera phone and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 digital camera.

Even low-end video camcorders produce side effects are better than camera phone, after all, the main function of camcorders for shooting video instead of the call. But you want the video uploaded to YouTube, as the site of the maximum file size limit of 100MB, this will be the need for video compression or the use of compression lens, together with the majority of home broadband network upload speed is very slow, So at the end of the video quality may be less than the original video.

What is the swine flu (H1N1)

Author: ambulance // Category:
Recently, "Swine Influenza (H1N1)" pretty much terrible, although China's official statement claiming that the time being not yet spread to the mainland, but you believe it?

Moreover, Hong Kong has a "suspected cases", so it is necessary that we remain vigilant! Swine influenza (H1N1) the mortality rate reached 6.77 percent, higher than normal influenza, and infection to the crowd for the 20-year-old young adults between 45-year-old. For me this kind has been in a "sub-healthy" in terms of IT practitioners, or the best to be careful!

Posted a few here and swine influenza (H1N1) related to the article, we sweep with literacy, learning about prevention matters! Swine Influenza Virus (Swine influenza virus, SIV), is a cause of swine influenza is endemic virus mucus (Orthomyxoviruses).

In the laboratory is currently separated by the virus, more than has been recognized as a C-type influenza virus, or influenza A virus, one of the subspecies. Under the electron microscope type A swine influenza virus there are many different varieties, including: H1N1, H1N2, H3N1, H3N2 and H2N3 subtypes of influenza A virus can cause infection of swine flu.

After the encounter of different viruses to exchange genes, variation for the new hybrid virus, so their lack of human immunity. This will make the swine flu epidemic affected the scope and impact is difficult to estimate the follow-up.

However, the virus attacks, and the individual differences in human immunity and human influenza from the confrontation in a variety of integrated access to the decision of the resistance is the decisive factor in the epidemic situation. According to the records of the United States, human infection with swine flu H1N1 virus outbreak in 1976 and appeared in 1988, resulting in two deaths.

Mother's Day Poems - A Mother's Love

Author: ambulance // Category:


There is no love, like a mother's love,no stronger bond on earth...like the precious bond that comes from God,to a mother, when she gives birth.
A mother's love is forever strong,never changing for all time...and when her children need her most,a mother's love will shine.
God bless these special mothers,God bless them every one...for all the tears and heartache,and for the special work they've done.
When her days on earth are over,a mother's love lives on...through many generations,with God's blessings on each one.
Be thankful for our mothers,for they love with a higher love...from the power God has given,and the strength from up above.
by Jill Lemming

A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
--Victor Hugo
All that I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother. I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.
--Abraham Lincoln
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
--Washington Irving
A mother had a slender, small body, but a large heart -- a heart so large that everybody's grief and everybody's joy found welcome in it, and hospitable accommodation.
--Mark Twain
The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best.
--Hamilton Wright Mabie

Car model craze

Author: ambulance // Category:
At auto shows in most countries, it's not the sky-high priced luxury cars that attract the visitors, but the models standing by the vehicles.

Visitors flocked around car models, and photographers took numerous pictures of them as they change to various poses in front of the cars. These beautiful showgirls, usually in short and sexy outfits, have quickly become an indispensable part of the car exhibitions for years.
Men are attracted to beautiful women, but what surprises many is how crazy the auto show visitors could be for models. Unless the car is a 10-million-yuan Bentley or Maserati, there won't be big audience around the booth without gorgeous models.

Car Modeling isn't That Easy

Author: ambulance // Category:
In the eyes of most visitors, the job of a car model is literally "under spotlight" -- they show off their beauty and charm in every way before crowds of people, and they are able to make a lot of money just by smiling at cameras.

But some models don't agree with the visitors' perception of their work. "People don't see our hardship and effort put into the job," said Wang Fei, a model for the Chery cars who had been modeling since she was 14 years-old. She complained she has to stand all day long during the show and keep smiling at everyone, trying to showcase her best stance at any moment.
Besides, the strong flash on cameras make the models feel dizzy, and they have to be cautious when wearing sexy clothes and around sly photographers.
"I'm very careful when wearing short skirts. There are visitors who put their cameras at low angles and shoot upward," said Ke Er, another model. But she said she won't tell them to stop, but will change her pose instead.
In most cases, model management companies hire models and send them to auto shows as carmakers request them. The modeling agencies train them and find them work, but provide no social welfare and other guarantees during their labor contract period, which is usually for one year.
However, aspiring models need to meet the high requirements of these agencies.
