US to honour Indian rape victim as woman of courage

First Lady Michelle Obama will join Secretary of State John Kerry as he presents the annual award recognizing women around the globe who have shown exceptional courage and leadership in advocating for women's rights and empowerment, often at great personal risk.

Since the inception of this award in 2007, the State Department has honoured 67 women from 45 different countries.
 
Nirbhaya "Fearless," champion for justice (India) will be awarded posthumously.

"Known to India and the world as "Nirbhaya" (Fearless), the courageous 23-year-old physiotherapy intern whose brutal gang rape on a moving bus in Delhi in December inspired widespread protests, has become the foundation of a popular movement to end violence against women in India," the citation noted.
 
"For millions of Indian women, her personal ordeal, perseverance to fight for justice, and her family's continued bravery is helping to lift the stigma and vulnerability that drive violence against women," it said.
 
"Nirbhaya" bravely recorded two police statements while in the hospital, repeatedly called for justice against the six attackers, and stated her will to survive to see justice done, the citation recalled.
 
"Like many Indians inspired by her struggle, she was born into a working class family that invested their hopes and life savings into her dream to pursue medicine. She had just graduated from a physiotherapy programme when her life was cut short.
 
"In the wake of her death just two weeks after the attack, India's active civil society began advocating heavily for legislation and social programmes to stem gender-based violence in all its forms and to ensure higher rape conviction rates and gender-sensitive law enforcement and justice systems," it said.
 
Thanks to these efforts, the Indian government has begun to take action to follow through on those demands, the citation noted.

Fire in the sky? Incredible pictures of flame-coloured twister were actually taken in a river running through a mine

  • Images that appear to show fiery twisters are actually river reflections
  • Others look like lava or flaming lightning
  • They were taken at the Rio Tinto in Spain

By SAM WEBB

It looks like a giant tornado is causing mayhem in the sky - but this image is simply the reflection of a river running through a mine.

To create this spectacular moment, photographer Tomas Bogonez went to the Rio Tinto's mining zone along the Rio Tinto river in Huelva, Spain.

A site along the river has been used for mining for centuries and that is why the colours in the photographs are so bright and vivid.

Other images of the bright red river bed show what appears to be a sky cracked with fiery lightning and orange-hued clouds.

It was mined for copper, silver and gold, and now the water is very acidic - resulting in a deep reddish hue because of the dissolved iron.

 

Tomas, from Guadalajara in Spain, admits this wasn't the first time he visited the special place.

The 59-year-old said: 'I have been to this beautiful place several times to take photographs, but this is my most memorable set of pictures.

Electric: This vibrant image looks like an ethereal flame-coloured lightning storm, complete with clouds

'The photographs show the bright colours of the bed - I have never seen it so vibrant before.

'The texture of the river was mind-blowing, the bright colours and the reflection of the river was amazing to see."

He added: 'The colour of the river depends on the time, hour of the day, month of the year and even the level of water.

The area has been mined for more than 5,000 years by a variety of different civilizations

'If the level of water is high, the bottom is not seen and therefore the colour is dimmer and the photographs aren't great.'

The area around the Rio Tinto has been mined since ancient times. In approximately 3,000 BCE, Iberians and Tartessians began mining the site, followed by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and Moors.

After a period of abandonment, the mines were rediscovered in 1556 and the Spanish government began operating them once again in 1724.

The million-pound mutt: Red Tibetan Mastiff becomes world's most expensive dog 



By DANIEL BATES
UPDATED: 09:18 GMT, 17 March 2011


    can't buy love – but 1million will get you man's most expensive best friend. 

A red Tibetan mastiff has become the priciest dog in the world after being sold for 10 million Chinese yuan, or 945,000. 


Big Splash, or Hong Dong in Chinese, was bought by a coal baron from the north of China. 

And it's lucky his new master is a multi-millionaire, because the hefty price tag doesn't factor in Big Splash's diet – enough chicken and beef to fill a growing 180lb dog, spiced up with Chinese delicacies such as sea cucumber and abalone.

AN EXPENSIVE DOG'S LIFE

They live for up to 14 years and have fewer genetic health problems than many breeds.

The heaviest Tibetan Mastiff weighed in at more than 20 stone.

They are fed an organic diet of tripe, boiled fish heads, powdered egg shells, code liver oil and raw bones to help them clean their teeth.

Marco Polo supposedly encountered Tibetan Mastiffs in the 13th century, describing them as 'tall as a donkey with a voice as powerful as that of a lion'.

There are only around 300 Tibetan Mastiffs in the UK.

They can only have one litter a year.

In the UK Tibetan Mastiffs cost between 850 and 1,000 for a puppy. An English Bulldog sells for around 2,000.

It is thought the Tibetan Mastiff genetically diverged from the wolf 58,000 years ago.

His owner will need a big house too, as adult Tibetan Mastiffs have been known to weigh as much as 286lb, or more than 20 stone – the same as a sizeable rugby player. However the typical weight for a fully grown Tibetan Mastiff is around 13 stone.

But according to breeder Lu Liang, Big Splash is a 'perfect specimen' and the extravagant price for the 11-month-old is completely justified.

He said: 'We have spent a lot of money raising this dog, and we have the salaries of plenty of staff to pay' – adding that the new owner could charge almost 10,000 a time for Big Splash to breed with a female. 

The high price paid for the dog is a sign that the red Tibetan mastiff has become a status symbol in China, replacing jewellery and cars as a way for the super-rich to show off their wealth.


Not only is red considered a lucky colour, but Tibetan mastiffs are thought to be holy animals, blessing their owners' health and security. 


Tibetans believe the dogs have the souls of monks and nuns who were not good enough to be reincarnated as humans or into Shambhala, the heavenly realm.  


Owners of the breed have included Queen Victoria, King George IV and  Genghis Khan – who supposedly took 30,000 of the dogs with his army in his bid to conquer Western Europe.

These days there are only around 300 Tibetan mastiffs in the UK, and puppies sell for a more reasonable 850 to 1,000.

Surrounds Yourself With Homour


Laughter elevates mood, promotes creativity and give us energy.

According to one study, the average four-year-old laughs three hundred times a day, while the average adult laughs just about fifteen times. With all the obligations, stresses and activities that fill our days, we have forgotten how to laugh. Daily laughter has been shown to elevate our mood, promote creativity and give us more energy. Comedian Steve Martin reportedly laughs for five minutes in front of the mirror every morning to get his creative juices flowing and to start his day on a high note. Try it; it works.

Laughter therapy has even been used to cure illnesses and heal those with serious ailments. As William James, the father of modern psychology, observed, "We don't laugh because we are happy. We are happy because we laugh."

A friend of mine, always known for his wise ways, made it his new year's resolution, one year, to laugh more.

Every few weeks, he would go to his local video store and rent a Three Stooges movie or buy a new book of humour, which he would then dip into when he had a few free moments during the course of his day.

A positive person already, he began to notice that he felt even happier and started to laugh even more than before he undertook this personal development initiative.

Because of all the humour he surrounded himself with and the new awareness it created in his life, he also began to see the lighter side of things and no longer experienced the level of stress he had felt in his professional pursuits. This simple discipline raised him to a whole new level of living and effectiveness.

Why not follow my friend's lead and head down to your local video store to stock up on the latest funny movies?

Then pick up a few books, perhaps something from Gary Larson's Far Side series or the much-read Dilbert cartoons, to stimulate your laughter habit. Reconnect to your playful side and enjoy the wonders of a deep belly laugh.
