How to play  
 
On the left side of the screen a picture will appear. On the right you will be told what it is, for example, it might be scene from a film. You then have to guess the name of the film. Type it into the box then click the 'make your guess button'. If it's right then you'll be told on the next page, if not then it's time to think...

Laughter Yoga
Posted by Den in health 11 years ago
Laughter Yoga is a physically-oriented technique that uses a perfect blend of playful, empowering and otherwise "tension-releasing" simple laughter exercises, interspersed with gentle breathing, warm up and stretching exercises, rhythmic clapping and chanting of Ho Ho Ha Ha Ha in unison. Sessions usually end with a most powerful laughter meditation where laughter flows out easily like a fountain. These exercises are done as a way to improve health, increase well-being, and promote peace in the world through personal transformation.  
 
In Laughter Yoga you use laughter as a tool, not an emotion.

Italian Football Scandal
Posted by Den in current events 12 years ago
Italian Scandal Spreading Like A Rash According to the Bologna-based newspaper Il Resto del Carlino, the wiretap scandal that has rocked Italian football over the past week is set to get much, much bigger.  
 
New interceptions made by the Napoli magistrates, while investigating the alleged wrong-doings of Juventus director Luciano Moggi and his son’s player agency company GEA, have reportedly uncovered an intricate system involving referees, players, agents, and clubs that 'fixed' (inluenced the outcomes of) an unknown number of matches last season.  
 
Il Carlino reports that the latest revelations involve another three clubs apart from Juventus - two apparently from the Lombardy region (the teams from this region during the 2004/05 season were Milan, Inter, Atalanta and Brescia), and Messina.  
 
Furthermore, around five referees, several linesmen, and a group of agents are also alleged to have been part of a syndicate whose aim was to fix the results of targeted matches.  
 
Around 20 games appear to have fallen victim to this insidious network.
Finland's controversial entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest - a heavy metal band called Lordi (The Lord) - has upset many Finns.  
 
The band members wear scary masks, which they refuse to take off, and the lead singer wields a chain-saw. Their song Hard Rock Hallelujah is a radical departure from the folk songs usually associated with Eurovision.  
 
"Lord have mercy on us Finnish people now," - Father Mitro Repo, Finnish clergyman

Great site of Ultraviolet art. Some really nice images, with the best feature being the Spectrometer which enables you to view the images from visible light through to ultraviolet light.
