"With true friends... even water drunk together is sweet enough."

Chinese Proverb

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." -Marianne Williamson

Huge Earthquake Triggers Tsunami Off Japan’s Coast


A devastating tsunami hit the coast of northeast Japan on Friday in the aftermath of an 8.9 magnitude earthquake about 80 miles offshore, killing at least five people and injuring dozens. The earthquake triggered widespread power blackouts, and tsunami alerts were issued across the Pacific Ocean from Russia to Hawaii.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan said the disaster caused major damage across wide areas, The Associated Press reported. Mr. Kan added that nuclear power plants in the stricken area had not been affected.

Trains were shut down across central and northern Japan, including Tokyo, and air travel was severely disrupted. The government held an emergency session to coordinate response as three people were reported killed in the Ibaraki, Tochigi and Chiba prefectures, according to the Kyodo news service. At least 30 people were injured in the cities of Tokyo and Osaki.

The quake occurred at 2:46 p.m. Tokyo time and hit off Honshu, Japan’s most populous island. The quake was so powerful that buildings in central Tokyo, designed to withstand major earthquakes, swayed.

“This tremor was unlike any I’ve experienced previously, and I’ve lived here for eight years. It was a sustained rolling that made it impossible to stand, almost like vertigo,” said Matt Alt, an American writer and translator living in Tokyo.

Television images showed waves of more than 12 feet roaring inland. The tsunami drew a line of white fury across the ocean, heading toward the shoreline. Cars and trucks were still moving on highways as the water rushed toward them.

Dalai Lama to resign political role

The Dalai Lama announced Thursday he would step down as political head of the exiled Tibetan government, but continue to push the Tibetan cause in his key role as its spiritual figurehead.

In an address in Dharamshala, the seat of the Tibetan government-in-exile in northern India, the Dalai Lama said he would seek an amendment allowing him to resign his political office when the exiled Tibetan parliament meets next week.

"As early as the 1960s, I have repeatedly stressed that Tibetans need a leader, elected freely by the Tibetan people, to whom I can devolve power," the 75-year-old said.

"Now, we have clearly reached the time to put this into effect."

While he retains the more significant role of Tibet's spiritual leader, the move marks a symbolic watershed in the history of the Tibetan movement and its long and largely fruitless struggle against Chinese rule.

The Dalai Lama was just 15 when he was appointed "head of state" in 1950 after Chinese troops moved into Tibet. He fled his homeland in 1959 after a failed uprising against Chinese rule.

His temporal duties are largely ceremonial and the Dalai Lama had already pronounced himself "semi-retired" following the first direct election in 2001 of a prime minister as the formal head of the exiled government.

In his address on Thursday, the Dalai Lama acknowledged "repeated and earnest" requests from within Tibet and outside to continue as political leader, but appealed for understanding of his decision.

"My desire to devolve authority has nothing to do with a wish to shirk responsibility," he said.

"It is to benefit Tibetans in the long run. It is not because I feel disheartened," he added.

His speech, delivered on the anniversary of the 1959 uprising, made it clear that he would not be withdrawing from the political struggle and remained "committed to playing my part in the just cause of Tibet".

Meaningful Action On The Way To Happiness - Lama Ole Nydahl

Buddha explained out of which kind of behavior a positive feedback results in order to develop more energy and surplus and to use them for the benefit of all beings.
Life is affected by habits. The impressions in mind color each action. What you do is rarely controlled by consciousness and awareness. Things on the outside, like actions or speech can be influenced -- to change the inner, mental basis however, requires deep methods. If you apply Buddha's teachings they will change your life towards a more joyful state of mind.

Germany wins global popularity contest

Germany is the most popular country in the world, according to a poll that asked people to rate the positive and negative influence of 16 major nations.

Of the nearly 29,000 people surveyed from 27 countries for the BBC World Service poll, 62 percent said that Germany’s influence on the world was positive.

The country has been seen as having the most positive influence among the nations evaluated since tracking began in Germany in 2008.

“In terms of lifestyle and its high-quality products, Germany has a successful image and doesn’t have the baggage that countries like the US and China have, which can be seen as culturally controversial,” a spokesman for GlobeScan, the company which carried out the survey, told Britain’s Telegraph newspaper.

Coming in second was the United Kingdom, which was seen by 58 percent of respondents positively. Canada was the third most popular, followed by Japan, France and Brazil. The United States came in seventh, ahead of China, South Africa and India.

At the bottom on the ranking was Iran, which had a negative ranking of 59 percent. Enjoying just slightly more love, or at least less antipathy, were North Korea, at 55 percent, and Pakistan, whose negative perception jumped five points from last year to 56 percent.

Bhutanese monk gets three years for possessing tobacco

A monk has become the first person to be sentenced in Bhutan for importing illegal tobacco products. He will spend the next three years in jail. He has hundreds of supporters who want the act to be repealed.

A 23-year-old monk, who was sentenced to three years in jail on Thursday for smuggling and illegally possessing 48 packets of chewing tobacco, is very unhappy.

"I should be punished, but the penalty could have been lighter, as I wasn’t aware of the act," Sonam Tshering told the local newspaper Kuensel after the district court in the capital Thimphu passed the verdict.

In his submission to the court, the defandant had admitted that he "had smuggled tobacco products across the border" from the Indian town of Jaigaon. However, he pleaded that he was "ignorant about the laws and appealed leniency for his crime."

Protected by the Cloud: G Data CloudSecurity - Free browser plug-in blocks dangerous websites

The majority of computer malware is distributed via the Internet today. However, users of free security solutions are often inadequately protected against this threat. This means that infected websites can quickly become a risk. At CeBIT 2011 G Data will for the first time be presenting G Data CloudSecurity, a free browser plug-in for blocking phishing sites and websites contaminated with malware. The plug-in can be used with Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer and is compatible with all free anti-virus solutions. G Data CloudSecurity is available from the beginning of April 2011 as a download from the G Data website and in well-known plug-in forums.

"The majority of malware today is distributed via the Internet by cyber-criminals," explains Ralf Benzmüller, Head of G Data SecurityLabs. "Adequate protection that also makes the user's online activities safe is therefore absolutely essential, as otherwise PCs will soon be infected with malware. Free anti-virus solutions cover this source of risk inadequately, or not at all. Therefore G Data CloudSecurity is the ideal enhancement for a free anti-virus solution."

G Data CloudSecurity blocks dangerous websites before they can cause any harm. The plug-in is compatible with any free anti-virus solution. G Data CloudSecurity is ready for use immediately after installation. Updates for the program are not necessary, as the more users use the plug-in, the more data the Cloud gathers on dangerous websites. This makes G Data CloudSecurity even more comprehensive. Users can also report suspicious websites via the plug-in. Experts at G Data SecurityLabs check them and feed the Cloud with data acquired in this manner.

G Data customers are already equipped with effective web protection by using G Data security solutions and therefore do not need to install the plug-in.

Millions expected at Rosenmontag parades in Rhineland

The Rhineland’s Rosenmontag parades kicked off on Monday, marking the pinnacle of the region’s Karneval celebrations with boozy processions featuring off-colour floats lampooning the year’s big news events.

Some two million costumed revellers were expected in the cities of Cologne, Düsseldorf, Mainz and beyond for the Shrove Monday parades, with plenty of sunshine in the forecast.

Festivities were set to begin around 10:30 am in the festival’s main city Cologne, where the parade will be some 6.5 kilometres long this year.

Karneval organizers in Mainz, which hosts the country’s second largest parade, said they expected half a million partygoers.

Popular satirical float themes are expected to be the plagiarism scandal surrounding former Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, German resistance to Google’s navigation program Street View, and the protests against the massive rail project Stuttgart 21.

The German Karneval season kicks off November 11 and culminates this week with the observance of Ash Wednesday in the predominantly Roman Catholic Rhineland region.

Tibet-Shop in Dortmund

Went this morning for some window shopping to Dortmund. Spend also some time to visit the Tibet-Shop there. It is a shop with tibetian handicraft and a great choice of different products. Most of them are made from tibetian refuges who live now in India and Nepal.
Bought some different kind of tibetian herbal tea there. Also was surprised to see some silk scarfs there and asked where they are from. Was even more surprised when the lady told me that they are from Cambodia. She explained to me that in her opinion the best silk in the world comes from Cambodia.
Very nice shop, really enjoyed the time there and next time I am in Dortmund I will go there again.
For all, who might be interested to go there, this is the address:

Godparenthood for young monk in Ladakh

Since today I support through a godparenthood and little monthly sponsorship a 8 year old Buddhist monk in a monastery in Ladakh. His name is Karma Lekshey Wangchuk. I am grateful for such charity organisations like Himalaya Hilfe e.V. who enable such sponsorship and through which also a correspondence with the sponsored child / monk is possible. He belongs to a monastery of the Karma Kagyu lineage of tibetian buddhism, the same one I practice too.



On the weekend I will write a first letter to him, looking forward to learn from each other and get to know each other a little bit.

About the Himalaya Hilfe e.V. charity organisation:
The main aim of Himalaya Hilfe e.V. is to give children and young adults from the region the opportunity to attend school or get professional training. This will enable them to lead an independent life.

Another field of activity is sponsoring of children and adults who live in Buddhist monasteries and elderly people without financial resources and a family that could support them.

All of these activities are supported through sponsorships and specific-purpose donations.

All staff are unpaid volunteers. Sabine Wollmann and Ulli Göbel, the founders of the Himalaya Hilfe, travel through the Himalayan region twice a year and personally distribute the donations. This allows them to personally verify the conditions under which those who receive assistance live, and assure that they are still complying with the eligibility requirements for the support they receive. Children and teenagers have to provide proof of enrolment in an educational establishment, e.g. their school report cards.

100% of the funds from sponsorships and purpose-bound donations are passed on to the sponsored individuals and projects. All other expenses are covered by general donations.

More information about Himalaya Hilfe e.V. can be found here in English and German:

It's OK to be gay in Indonesia so long as you keep it quiet

Some might fear persecution being gay in the country that has the largest Muslim population in the world. But in Indonesia a huge gay film festival is held every year. What does is really mean to be gay in Indonesia?

John Badalu has been organizing the Q! Film Festival for the past 10 years. It is the biggest gay film festival in Asia and the only one of its kind in a country with a majority of Muslim inhabitants. The 38-year-old says it is possible to live a pretty free life as a homosexual in Indonesia's big cities but the challenges are increasing.

Last year, the Q! Film Festival was attacked by the radical Islamic Defenders Front (FPI), which accused Badalu and his team of showing pornographic films. They threatened to burn down the venues if the festival was not stopped.

Convinced that his organization was on firm ground, Badalu and his team refused and the festival was held in five big cities. A few months before, an international gay conference that was supposed to be held in Surabaya in East Java had been cancelled after coming under attack from the same radical group.

Badalu is not overly concerned. He says it is not just gay people that FPI is targeting, but also other minorities such as members of the Islamic movement Ahmadiyya.

"If anything is against Islam in their interpretation, they will go against it, they will go and bash them," explained Badalu further. However, according to Badalu, there has never been gay bashing in Indonesia.

Revelers Flock to the Streets to Celebrate Carnival

All over the continent, Europeans are celebrating one of the year's biggest events: Carnival. From Germany to Croatia, and at places in-between, party-goers are dressing up and going out. SPIEGEL ONLINE takes a look at some of the continent's Carnival highlights.

Carnival, that annual, crazy event full of parties, parades and music is fully underway in cities across Europe. And while some cities, such as Berlin, have already celebrated with their own Carnival parades, there are plenty of events still on the horizon.

Dating to medieval times, Carnival is celebrated primarily in Catholic countries as a symbolic renewal of life before Lent. In Germany, it is traditionally a much-loved event in the Rhineland cities of Düsseldorf and Cologne. But those who've had enough of chilly German weather can head to sunnier locales in Spain or Italy. Want to keep things cool? Countries like Switzerland and France have their own versions, too.

Police face outbreak of spring fever in randy Ruhr Valley

An outbreak of spring fever has lead to a spurt of lusty behaviour in the Ruhr Valley, leading police to throw some metaphorical buckets on cold water on matters that got out of hand.

Spring has officially sprung, on the calendar at least, and people in Germany's gritty Ruhr region appear to be wholeheartedly engaging in an activity causing temperatures to rise – sex.

On Tuesday night, an explosion of randiness kept police in Bochum busy answering calls by people scared of, angered by or perhaps just jealous of all the wantonness.

In the scared of category, police answered a call from a driver on the A40 motorway who reported a truck driving erratically, weaving back and forth on the road. Several police cars were dispatched to the scene to apprehend what officers assumed to be a trucker endangering lives by driving drunk.

In the end, the swerving wasn't caused by alcohol. Rather, the driver had become overwhelmed by the erotic ministrations of the woman beside him, who also happened to be his wife. Their libidinous activities kept him from giving his full attention to the road, and the case was passed on to the autobahn police.

The Bochum police also received a call from an irate man who had paid a visit to the city’s red-light district. He told officers he had been robbed in a bordello. Apparently, he was unhappy with the services rendered and felt the evening’s cost-benefit ratio had been criminally skewed. Police prepared a complaint report, although the investigation is ongoing.

Also on Tuesday night, police were dispatched to an apartment building in Bochum’s Langendreer district where residents complained about neighbours whose enthusiastic and high-volume lovemaking over a period of several hours was disturbing the peace.

In what the Bochum police described as a “delicate operation that doesn’t happen every day,” the couple was told to keep it down.

Tech fair CeBIT rides bullish IT sector

With the IT industry in a bullish mood, CeBIT opens on Tuesday in Hannover. The world's top high-tech trade fair is preparing to wow visitors with head-spinning futuristic gadgets and the latest in 'cloud computing' technology.

More than 4,200 tech firms from 70 countries are expected to attend this year's CeBIT - the self-styled "Davos of high-tech" - with many of the big names that stayed away during the global financial crisis returning to Germany.

Google, IBM, SAP, Microsoft, HP and Dell are among the top companies setting up their stalls in Hanover, northern Germany, for the five-day event that is likely to attract around 350,000 punters and self-confessed technology geeks.

"CeBIT 2011 is the heart of the digital world and will show how rapidly the pulse of the IT industry is beating," said Ernst Raue, board member of Deutsche Messe that organises the event.

As the event approached, BITKOM, which represents Germany's telecom and high-tech sector, forecast a 4.8-percent gain in the global IT market to €2.6 trillion ($3.6 trillion) this year, driven by double-digit growth in China.

Despite the optimism, however, the CeBIT fair is not the global showcase it once was. Exhibitor numbers are up only fractionally on last year and at the height of the dot.com boom, more than 8,000 firms set up shop at the show.

The major theme of this year's fair is cloud computing which "runs like a leitmotiv through the different exhibitions," according to BITKOM president August-Wilhelm Scheer.

Firms will be hoping to move cloud computing - the idea of storing data online rather than physically on users' machines - from the realms of the IT world into consumers' everyday lives, said Scheer.

"Cloud computing is going to change IT and its business model enormously. We expect cloud computing sales in Germany to quadruple by 2015," he said.

Other hot topics at the exhibition will be web security, high-speed internet and bringing 3D computing into everyday life.
