Tatra Mountains –A Slovakian man who was trapped in his car under an avalanche, has escaped by urinating on ice to melt it. The man—who had 60 half-litre bottles of beer with him in the car—literally drank his way to safety.
“I was scooping the snow from above me and packing it down below the window, and then I peed on it to melt it,” he said.
Rescue workers found the man still drunk on a mountain path in Slovakia’s Tatra Mountains four days after his Audi car was buried.
“It was hard and now my kidneys and liver hurt. But I’m glad the beer I took on holiday turned out to be useful and I managed to get out of there,” he said.
He first planned to shovel the ice from outside his window, directly into his car, but soon realised that he would run out of room in his car before he would be able to reach the top.
Snowfalls of levels not seen since 1941 have fallen over parts of Europe over the past week. Some places have registered more than 3 meters of snow in 24 hours.

Canadian workers with the Canadian Auto Workers Union have gone on strike due to 70,000 American employees of United Auto Workers Union (UAW) forced to strike against General Motors (GM), just one day ago.
GM Canada’s Windsor, Ontario plant, which employs 1,400 people shut down on Monday. On Tuesday Car Plant 1 in Oshawa, Ontario, which employs 3,000, closed at 3:00am ET. Car Plant 2, also in Oshawa, which employs 2,500 workers, could make a speedy close today or tomorrow. Other GM car plants in Ontario are also feared to close during the strike.
If the strike in the U.S. stays, up to 100,000 Canadian UAW workers could be laid off, according to Buzz Hargrove, president of the Canadian Auto Workers Union. Eighty-thousand Canadians work for the auto-parts industry in Canada, and 40,000 could be laid off, Hargrove also says.
According to the BBC, analysts say the strike will only last for two weeks. The UAW last called a national strike on GM 30 years ago.

Findings on a new “sleep survey” seem to be mixed as a sleep analysis of 10,308 government workers over seventeen years was recently made public. The study was conducted by the University of Warwick and the University College London in the United Kingdom.
The participants were aged 35-55. Researchers examined the participants’ sleeping habits between the years of 1995 to 1998, and 1992 to 1993, and mortality rates until 2004. It also compared the social lives of the participants to sleeping habits.
The study shows that, if a person cuts their sleep from seven hours to five hours they ultimately risk an increase of death and death from cardiovascular problems. But sleeping more than eight hours doubles the risk of death, and death would be triggered from non-cardiovascular diseases. Sleeping less than five hours per night increases a risk of weight gain, Type 2 diabetes, and other diseases, which could end up in leading to death.
“A third of the population of the UK and over 40 percent in the U.S. regularly sleep less than five hours a night, so it is not a trivial problem,” said Francesco Cappuccio, professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Warwick. “The current pressures in society to cut out sleep, in order to squeeze in more, may not be a good idea — particularly if you go below five hours.”
“This change, largely the result of sleep curtailment to create more time for leisure and shift-work, has meant that reports of fatigue, tiredness and excessive daytime sleepiness are more common than a few decades ago. Sleep represents the daily process of physiological restitution and recovery, and lack of sleep has far-reaching effects,” he said on the university’s website.
“In terms of prevention, our findings indicate that consistently sleeping around seven hours per night is optimal for health,” Cappuccio added.
The new findings have been published on medical journal SLEEP‘s website. It will officially be published in the magazines next issue.

Events management is a career for those who’re organised, energetic and outgoing. A work hard, party hard attitude is key, and while it can be a highly stressful job, a recent YouGov survey found that the vast majority of people working in the industry wouldn’t swap careers.
You need a lot of stamina and a lot of drive – You need to be the first person to get up and the last person to go to bed, making sure you have a smile on your face no matter what is going on and be able to think on your feet.
A lot of people aspire to get into this industry, and there are a large number of universities offering courses in events management, along with a degree there are a few other things you can do to push yourself ahead of the competition.
A degree helps show you have a commitment to an events career. More and more graduates, in a wide range of subjects are doing a master’s course in events management to get in-depth knowledge of the events industry. It’s also a way of showing their commitment to a career in this business and ensures their job applications stand out.
Courses tend to cover the basic logistics of organising an event – marketing it, health and safety, catering. Students will learn all the practical bits, but along with this they also learn about the impact of events on the economy, on the environment and on the lives of people who live close to one being held.
Some courses offer placement years and one thing that is hugely important in this industry is experience.
It’s not always paid, but is imperative if you want to gain on the job experience and to get your name out there with event management companies.

Traditionally, medicine balls were one of the four pillars of fitness training, the others being dumbbells, the wand and the Indian club. These are used in weight training, balance enhancement and muscle strengthening.
What is a medicine ball
Medicine balls are basket ball or football sized balls, typically filled with different shock absorbing materials like sand, steel shots or even some gels with a leather, vinyl or rubber covering. They may or may not bounce depending on their stuffing. Their weight ranges from 2 to 25 pounds. Some variations of the ball include a handle or an attached rope. You can make a make-shift medicine ball at home by compacting a football or basketball with sand. However, it is advisable to use professionally calibrated balls.
Uses of the medicine ball
These balls are mainly used for building up core strength. They are used in various exercises like squatting, lifting, throwing ahead, behind and above the head, catching, punching etc. Muscle specific exercises can also be performed using medicine balls. These are very effective while doing crutches and other exercises that focus on developing abdominal strength. Plyometrics usually include medicine ball training. All sportsmen use these balls since they require substantial muscle power. The balls provide high intensity and explosive workout which works excellently for strength training. Medicine balls are a useful aid for rehabilitation from injuries. They can be used by both men and women.
How to use the medicine ball
Before you start using the ball, make sure that you are well warmed up. If your fitness schedule includes cardio workouts, then finish the medicine ball training before beginning cardio. If you are a beginner, it is best to take expert advise on the correct usage of the ball. The right style of handling the ball matters. Improper movements are injurious. Select light weight balls to begin with. Gradually increase your working intensity. Do not over do medicine ball exercises in a hurry to get those six packs. You will end up with muscle cramps.
Since the workout involves throwing, make sure there is ample space around you. A broken window pane is a bitter compensation for toned arms. If you have a partner in your training, make sure that he is also well acclimatized with the ball’s usage.
It is very important to concentrate on your posture while using the ball. Your body should be balanced and steady. Make sure that you do not stumble in an attempt to throw more forcefully or to a greater distance. If you are sitting, keep your shoulders and back straight. Never stoop while using the ball. When using the ball while lying down, do not arch your back.
Be concious about where you focus your body weight. Your weight should not fall on bone joints like knees, elbows or ankles. The impact should always be on the muscles and not on the joints.
You should be comfortable while handling the ball. Movements should be smooth and not jerky. If the weight you are using is too high for you, choose a lighter ball
Medicine balls are a multi faceted invention in the field of fitness. They can be used to tone up almost all the body parts. When used in conjunction with other fitness training methods, results are more enhanced. So, if you are looking for those killer abs or toned arms, then medicine balls training is the way to go.

Several mainstream news outlets have misstated and overstated a possible link between cellular phone use and decreased fertility in men. A single experiment, which has not yet been published in any peer reviewed journal or replicated by other scientists, observed an average decrease in sperm motility and an increase in free radicals among laboratory sperm samples that were exposed to radiation similar to the radiation produced by cellular phone use.
Dr. Ashok Agarwal of the Cleveland Clinic estimates the overall health impact of cellular phones as “very safe” and reassured a Cable News Network reporter that the research was too premature to advise lifestyle changes for the public. “Our study has not provided proof that you should stop putting cell phones in your pocket. There are many things that need to be proven before we get to that stage.” He noted that his own cell phone was in his trouser pocket while he was giving the interview. Dr. Agarwal is the lead researcher for the study and Director of the Center for Reproductive Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic.
Cell phone industry spokesman Joe Farren agreed with Dr. Agarwal’s assessment about the devices’ overall safety: “The weight of the published scientific evidence, in addition to the opinion of global health organizations, shows that there is no link between wireless usage and adverse health effects.”
The controlled experiment used sperm samples from thirty-two donors: twenty-three healthy men and nine men who had fertility problems. Sperm were then exposed to radiation for one hour at 850 megahertz, the most common frequency for cell phones in the United States. Dr. Agarwal’s study raises a possible concern that cell phones kept on belts or trouser pockets and used in conjunction with wireless bluetooth earpieces “could cause harmful effects due to the proximity of the phones and the exposure that they are causing to the gonads.” He also noted that follow-up research is needed to determine whether the body’s skin and other tissue affords protection from the potential damage.
Several news sources ran misleading reports that overstated the risk.
The Los Angeles Times asserted a fallacious causal relationship that Dr. Agarwhal had not drawn and ignored his opinions that cellular phones are safe and no change in phone use is necessary. Instead, the piece opened by ordering men to stop keeping cell phones in their pockets:
HAVE YOUR SAY
Do you think that cell phones are safe?
Add or view comments
- “Attention male cellphone users of reproductive age: Take that phone out of your pocket. Information published today suggests that the radio-frequency energy released by cellphones decreases sperm quality in men.”
Ciol News ran a similar account:
- “Beware men! Do you have the habit of keeping your mobile phone in the pockets of your trousers while talking on hand-free? Or do clip the mobile to your belt while talking? If so you are doing that at the cost of your fertility, warns a recent study.”
Mobile Magazine went a step further, also alluding to previous media exaggerations about cellular phone dangers:
- “Oh no! It seems that mobile phones are getting even more problematic than ever. After getting linked to everything from migraines to cancer, it seems that the radiation from cell phones is now being connected to stupid sperm. Yes, I’m talking about the little swimmers that lead into a conversation about the birds and the bees.”
Mobile Magazine also ended in a misleading manner with “I wonder if it’s healthier to put your phone in your shirt pocket instead,” failing to mention that Dr. Agarwal had addressed that concern and had called it an unnecessary precaution.
Not all news sources overplayed the findings. CNN and United Press International ran balanced reports that did not suggest dangers or precautions beyond the lead researcher’s conclusions.

Today, United States Senator Ted Kennedy underwent surgery for a brain tumor at Duke University Medical Center. Kennedy, 76, was diagnosed with malignant glioma, a common but dangerous form of cancer, after suffering a seizure on May 17.
Kennedy has met repeatedly with friend and medical advisor Dr. Lawrence C. Horowitz to plan a course of treatment. The first, of the major phases of that treatment has now been completed, and it is expected that chemotherapy and radiotherapy will follow.
“I am pleased to report that Senator Kennedy’s surgery was successful and accomplished our goals,” said Dr. Allan Friedman, the chief of neurosurgery at Duke, who performed the surgery. “After a brief recuperation, he will begin targeted radiation at Massachusetts General Hospital and chemotherapy treatment,” Friedman added.
In talks with the press, the senator has focused on his future beyond surgery. In a prepared statement issued by his office, Kennedy stated, “after completing treatment, I look forward to returning to the United States Senate and to doing everything I can to help elect Barack Obama as our next president.”
