19 pound baby born!



This is not in Sri Lanka, but in Indonesia.. Can we have your attention please? To everyone who likes to brag about giving birth to 8, 9, even 10-lb. babies, we advise you keep quiet around Ani from Indonesia. The woman recently delivered a 19.2-lb. bruiser, the heaviest newborn ever recorded in the Indonesia.

Ani's epic delivery scored a lot of attention in all search engines . After the "Today" show ran a segment and Al Roker and Matt Lauer made some lighthearted jokes, lookups on "19 pound baby," "indonesian baby," and "heaviest baby ever" all spiked immediately.

And pictures? Oh my, the baby's pictures were also hugely popular. Queries for "19 pound baby photos" jumped from nil into the thousands, and photos within Yahoo! News are drawing big clicks. Not surprisingly, the baby is said to require "near constant feeding."

For those wondering if this baby boy (as of yet unnamed, but we suggest "Hulk") is the heaviest newborn in history, the answer is no. The record belongs to an American infant born in 1879. He weighed 23 pounds, 12 ounces. Sadly, he died a few hours after being born. An ABC station reports that the heaviest baby to survive weighed 22 lbs., 8 ounces. We sure hope the big guy was always extra-nice to his mother.

Adam & Eve are Sri Lankans

 

An  Englishman, a Frenchman and a Sri Lankan Economist, are viewing a
painting  of Adam and Eve, frolicking in the Garden of Eden.

"Look at their  reserve, their calm?" muses the Englishman.  "They MUST be
English!"

"Nonsense," says  the Frenchman.  "They are both naked and beautiful.  They
MUST be  French!"

"You  are both wrong," says the Sri Lankan Economist.  "They have no
clothes,  and no shelter.  They have only one apple, for both of them to
eat.  Yet they are being told, that they are in Paradise.  Clearly, they
ARE Sri Lankans!"

Sri Lanka forex reserves US$3bn

Sri Lanka's central bank on Friday said its foreign exchange reserves hit a record $3.9 billion after it received its share of a $250 billion International Monetary Fund allocation.

 

The 875 million US dollar flow from a "US-based fund" will increase the maturity profile of government debt, Central Bank governor Nivard Cabraal said.

 

"This is a result of a road show we did in the US recently," Cabraal said. "Investors are expecting interest rates to fall further so they can lock in profits." Government rupee bonds now yield about 13.0 percent.

 

Cabraal said total investments to rupee bonds would rise to the equivalent of about 1,250 million US dollars by Friday. The current ceiling for foreign rupee treasuries’ purchases was about 2.0 billion US dollars, he said.

 

The country had record high reserves of $3.56 billion by August 2008, pushed up by foreign purchases of government securities that were yielding over 17 percent.

 

But by year's end, they had plummeted by half with the central bank defending the rupee against depreciation and the withdrawal of more than $600 million after investors cashed in government securities as global financial markets crashed.

 

Those factors prompted Sri Lanka to reverse political course and pursue IMF assistance.

Sex edu for Sri Lankans

For us Sri Lanka there are few sources where we can learn about sex, I mean ‘good’ side of sex( having sex with your partner)

 

1. Sex is a beauty treatment. Scientific tests find that when women make love they produce amounts of the hormone estrogen, which makes hair shine and skin smooth.

=============

 

2. Gentle, relaxed lovemaking reduces your chances of suffering dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes. The sweat produced cleanses the

pores and makes your skin glow.

=============

 

3. Lovemaking can burn up those calories you piled on during that

romantic dinner.

 

=============

4. Sex is one of the safest sports you can take up. It stretches and tones up just about every muscle in the body. It's more enjoyable than swimming 20 laps, and you don't need special sneakers!

 

=============

5. Sex is an instant cure for mild depression. It releases endorphins

into the bloodstream, producing a sense of euphoria and leaving you

with a feeling of well-being.

 

=============

 

6. The more sex you have, the more you will be offered.. The sexually

active body gives off greater quantities of chemicals called pheromones.

These subtle sex perfumes drive the opposite sex crazy!

 

==============

 

7 Sex is the safest tranquillizer in the world. IT IS 10 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE THAN VALIUM. 

 

=============

8.. Kissing each day will keep the dentist away. Kissing encourages saliva to wash food from the teeth and lowers the level of

the acid that causes decay, preventing plaque build-up.

 

=============

 

9. Sex actually relieves headaches. A lovemaking session can release

the tension that restricts blood vessels in the brain.

 

=============

 

10. A lot of lovemaking can unblock a stuffy nose. Sex is a natural antihistamine. It can help combat asthma and hay fever.

 

============= 

 

This post publish for good luck in sex for ALL blog readers of About-Lanka. !

Channel 4 video about Sri Lanka








Channel 4, a British TV channel released the video last week - and it appears to show two bound and blindfolded prisoners being shot in the back of the head as the gunmen laugh.
The footage, taken with a mobile phone camera, also shows another six men who appear to have been executed in this way.
The Sri Lankan army says the video is a fake, designed to discredit the security forces.
But special UN representative Philip Alston told Radio Australia's Connect Asia program: "The responsibility is on the government of Sri Lanka to demonstrate that a video of this quality and this apparent authenticity is, in fact, a fake." But now scientific evidence proves it was a fake!
The Channel 4 apparently engaged in a deliberate propaganda campaign against Sri Lankan citizens, has come up with its latest canard about the island nation. A video footage of very poor quality showing two persons clad in combat uniforms shooting down two others has been given a huge publicity by the Channel 4 TV claiming it to be of Sri Lankan soldiers "summarily executing Tamils".
Then comes the scene of a man wearing an olive-green overall shooting a naked and loosely blindfolded man with his hands tied behind his back. The victim is shot at point blank range at the back of the head. Then the one with the camera turns at several other males lying on the ground apparently dead. The 1:02.781 (minute) video footage ends showing another man shooting the second blindfolded man in the same fashion as the earlier one. The only difference was the shooter was clad in a camouflaged combat uniform. Throughout the video, several men were heard shouting in Sinhalese and thundering blasts were clearly heard in the background as if the video was taken under heavy fire.


Finally, the whole affair about the video indicates nothing but the dearth of genuineness on the part of the human rights activists in Sri Lanka. Jonathan Miller is certainly an unknown figure to Sri Lankans despite his pretence as an expert in Sri Lanka's affairs. Yet, the people who feed information to Miller, the so-called Sri Lankan rights activists, are well known to all discernible citizens here. Portraying these individuals as rights activists before ordinary Sri Lankan citizens is certainly a laughable matter for everyone knows that it is just a good business for them.

What happened in Hikka 2009-Tourism Promotion Minister

Tourism Promotion Minister Faizer Mustapha says that there was no indecent behaviour displayed at the recently concluded Hikkaduwa Beach Festival, in spite of pictures to the contrary depicting semi-nude women, circulated in the media and via email.

Speaking to Media, in particular on the reports of semi-nudity the Minister said "It is a complete fabrication; it did not happen at the Hikka Festival". He said that the Tourism Ministry had been very conscious of its responsibility to the country's culture and heritage and those measures had been taken to ensure that no indecency prevailed during the course of the four-day extravaganza. The Minister added that given that such stringent measures were put in place that he had been both surprised and shocked at the adverse stories circulating in the media.

ලංකාවේ සර්කස් කළාව කොයිබටද ?




Future of Sri Lankan circus.... සර්කස් එකක්! Yesterday I went to see 'Circus show' near Pokunuwita(Horana). The circus was named as 'Circus Pasipriya'. At the end of the show i thought to post something about the future of Sri Lankan circus. Also share some videos with you guys. සර්කස් ත‍්‍රාසය, භීතිය හා කුතුහලය සපිරුනු එක්තරා කි‍්‍රඩාවකි. කඹයක් මත ඇවිදීම මොනතරම් භයානක දෙයක්ද දන්නේ සර්කස් කණ්ඩායම් වල අය විතරයි. සර්කස් යෙදුනු කණ්ඩායම් බොහෝ ගණනක්(සර්කස් පැසිපියා, කමලා සර්කස් සහ ශෂිකලා සර්කස් ...) දක්නට ලැබුනත් අද මෙහි නිරතවන්නේ සීමිත පිරිසකි. “No government has worked to continue with this sport for the future. They have not even launched an insurance scheme or a compensation scheme for those engaged in this risky sport,” he added. ‘‘සංදර්ශන ඉදිරිපත් කරන්න ගියහම අප ගැටඵ ගණනාවකට මුහුණ දෙනවා. ඉඩකඩක් තියෙන ස්ථානයක් සොයා ගැනිම හරිම අපහසුයි. ඇතැම්විට ප‍්‍රාදේශිය සභාවලින් අයකරන බදු නිසා අපට ලැබෙන මුදල් මදි. බදු ඉවත්වුනාම අපට ලැබෙන්නේ ලැබෙන ආදායමෙන් 40%යි. ඉතිරි මුදල සංවිධායක කමිටුවට යන්නේ. ඇතැම් අවස්ථාවල ලැබෙන මුදල මදි සේවකයන්ට පඩි ගෙවන්න.” සර්කස් අයිතිකරු පවසන්නේය. සර්කස් පෙන්වද්දී වැටී ආබාධිත වූ සර්කස් කලා කරුවෙකුට ආබාධිත කලා කරුවෙකුට රජයෙන් ගෙවන රුපියල් 3000/- (තුන් දාහක) දීමනාවවත් නැහැ. As they hightlight very near future Sri lankan circus will be no more!Even though shows are not attractive as chinese shows we must do something to protect this people and the art!

Barber in New York!


Barber in NY
There was once a very good barber in NEW YORK , who gave Free Haircuts to everybody who came into his shop to have their haircuts.

One day a florist went to him for a haircut.
After the cut, he wanted to pay the barber, but  the barber replied:
'It's alright, I cannot accept money from you. I am doing community service.'
The Florist was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open his shop,
there was a thank you card and a dozen roses waiting at his door .

A policeman went for a haircut and he also wanted to pay the barber after the cut.
But the barber replied: 'I cannot accept money from you. I am doing community service.'

The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open his shop,
there was a thank you card and a dozen donuts waiting at his door.

A Sri Lankan software engineer went for a haircut and he also wanted to pay the barber after the cut.
But the barber replied: 'I cannot accept money from you. I am doing community service.'
The SL software engineer was very happy and left.
