There is no lack of gloomy news around the world but surely nothing is worse than the famine in Somalia. No one should have to die for lack of food and water. Please consider making a donation today to an aid organization to help refugees in Dabaab survive. (CARE, Mercy Corps, World Food Program and Save The Children are some of the organizations you can donate to.) http://www.cnn.com/2011/HEALTH/08/09/largest.refugee.camp/index.html
Right now, this may be the most desperate place on Earth.

As much as 40 per cent of all the fruits, vegetables and food grains grown in India never make it to the market.

A study has found that internet use affects memory. Not surprised. We're relying less on memory and more on Google for everything! http://nyti.ms/mPOqRe
Subjects were more likely to remember information that they would not be able to retrieve from a computer.

Please spare a thought for those dying of hunger in Somalia and consider making a donation today. (Save The Children, CARE, World Food Program and Mercy Corps are some of the organizations you can donate to. I donated to CARE.)

The Shabab militants are a disgrace to humanity. Kudos to The New York Times though for giving this story the prominence it deserves and for the images, which though harsh, bring people closer to the reality of the situation on the ground. Though it seems aid organizations can't do much for those in Somalia itself, they are working to provide aid to Somalian refugees in Kenya and other neighboring countries and that's where we may be able to help with our donations.

Oh world, you never cease to amaze and entertain me! An Austrian man won the right to wear a pasta strainer on his head in his license photo. He said he was a 'Pastafarian' belonging to the 'Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.'
