Log into Twitter using your face

11 Nov

I can’t believe it! no, seriously!

As  part of the European MoBio (mobile biometry) Project, the University of Manchester team has developed a demo app that can log the user into Gmail, Twitter and Facebook using just face and voice recognition. Work on the technology finishes this month and Dr Philip A. Tresadern says that a number of well-known companies in the mobile space have shown interest in using the technology.

Although the demo has been built for the Nokia N900, Dr Tresadern says that he may well have opted for the iPhone if the front-facing camera-sporting iPhone 4 had been released in time. You can read more here

a random thought

8 Nov

Why is the big red, white and blue country spending billions sending troops to afghanistan/pakistan/ (goodness knows where else) when there are children in africa starving to death.
How is it that so much money can be spent on wars and destruction, destruction that is not actually needed. Why not fix something that is actually ‘broken’? Instead, YOU, yes, YOU being the *blank* *blank* are spending millions on crap, basically.
Michael Jackson was right. We need to save this planet, protect it, make it better. How about by starting with the poor? Feed them. Give them clothes and fresh drinking water.
How about troops going on strike? Refusing to join? Why do these guys keep going to fight unnecessary battles? There is no war on terror. Leave these countries alone and maybe they will leave you alone too. What do you think? You reading this, Mr O?

Katy Perry does it ‘Hindi’ Style

23 Oct

Well, looks like the ‘girl that kissed the girl and liked it’ has married that idiot, Russell Brand.

The nuptials were held at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India, the same spot where the quirky couple got engaged on New Year’s Eve.
While details are scarce on the über-couple’s wedding, hotel employees were seen adorning bird cages with flowers earlier in the day. Media stationed outside of the wedding also reported that the sounds of Indian instruments and songs from Rajasthani folk musicians could be heard from outside of the resort.
Even though Rihanna and Katy have had ‘obvious bust-ups’ in the past, it seems Rihanna was there.
Last Sunday, Brand tweeted this: “@katyperry YOU’RE A HACKER, A BAD WIFE AND YOUR NATURAL HAIR COLOUR IS GINGER. There’s not enough dye in the world to rinse away the lie.” That message came a few minutes after Brand seemingly tweeted, “My farts smell.”
Yes, lovely…that’s definitely the type of husband that I would like to have.
For those that don’t know know who he is…have a look:

What’s your blood type?

12 Oct

So, recently a friend told me about ‘The Blood Type Diet

I was a little unsure about it but it’s very, very interesting and could be worth some serious thought.

What if it was obvious what we should and should not eat. You can find your own diet plan for your blood type here

So, I’ve been doing some research and according to my blood type, which is A, I should be doing the following; Tai Chi and Yoga – interesting, calming exercises are a much better preference for me, running and intensive exercise is a huge no no.

So, here’s what the doctor has to say re; blood types and diet.

Type O-People with type O blood fare best on intense physical exercise and animal proteins and less well on dairy products and grains, says Dr. D’Adamo. The leading reason for weight gain among Type O’s is the gluten found in wheat products and, to a lesser extent, lentils, corn, kidney beans, and cabbage, Dr. D’Adamo explains. Ideal exercises for Type O’s include aerobics, martial arts, contact sports, and running.

Type A-Those with blood type A, however, are more naturally suited to a vegetarian diet and foods that are fresh, pure, and organic. As Type A’s are predisposed to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, “I can’t emphasize how critical this dietary adjustment can be to the sensitive immune system of Type A,” says Dr. D’Adamo. Type A’s prefer calming, centering exercise, such as yoga and tai chi.

Type B-Type B’s have a strong immune system and a tolerant digestive system and tend to resist many of the severe chronic degenerative illnesses, or at least survive them better than the other blood types. Type B’s do best with moderate physical exercise requiring mental balance, such as hiking, cycling, tennis, and swimming.

Type AB-Blood type AB, the most recent, in terms of evolution, of the four groups and an amalgam of types A and B, is the most biologically complex. For this group, a combination of the exercises for types A and B works best, says Dr. D’Adamo.

So, all a bit strange? Yes, perhaps but it might actually work. We’ll see………only time will tell.

Here is an example of a typical Type A diet plan
