Apple Iphone Is Outdated (Blackberry Says)

Apple's iPhone is outdated, according to the chief executive of BlackBerry maker, Research In Motion (RIM) Ltd.
Thorsten Heins made the comment last Thursday on the eve of the much-delayed launch of the new touch-screen BlackBerry in the United States. AT&T begins selling the Z10 touch-screen BlackBerry on Friday, more than six weeks after RIM launched the devices elsewhere.
Heins also told The Associated Press that a new keyboard version of the BlackBerry won't be released in the US until two or three months from now. He previously said it would be eight to 10 weeks, but now he's saying it could be delayed an additional two weeks.
Both the touch-screen and keyboard models are part of RIM's attempt at a comeback after the pioneering brand lost its cachet not long after Apple's 2007 release of the iPhone.
Heins said a lack of innovation at Apple has left iPhone's user interface outdated. He noted iPhone users have to go in and out of applications and the device doesn't allow for multitasking like the new BlackBerry Z10 does.
"It's still the same," Heins said of the iPhone. "It is a sequential way to work and that's not what people want today anymore. They want multitasking."

Samsung Galaxy S4

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is set to be released the Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones now considered the main competitor to Apple's iPhone, there will be huge interest in the Galaxy S4's unveiling . 

When Samsung released the S3 it made the phone slightly bigger and slightly thinner than the S2, and this year the company is expected to do the same with the S4 - with it being slightly bigger and a bit thinner than the S3.

The Galaxy S3 had dimensions of 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm, however, the S4 is expected to be 140.1 mm in length, as well as slightly wider at 71.8 mm. The device will be significantly thinner as well at 7.7 mm - if rumors about the device remain true.

The Galaxy S3 also featured a 4.8 inch Super AMOLED display at a 1280 x 720 resolution of 306 pixels per inch (ppi). The upgraded Galaxy S4 should feature a slightly larger 4.99-inch Full HD SoLux Display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a 450+ ppi.

Power-wise the Galaxy S3 had the quadcore 1.4 GHz Exynos 4 processor and an ARM Mali-400 for its GPU. Both of those chips will get an upgrade for the S4, which is rumored to be featuring the new Exynos 5 Octa CPU.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is said to have an even more powerful chip than the S3 from Broadcom - the "5G Wi-Fi combo chip" - listed as the BCM4335 chip. The 5G Wi-Fi combo chip is said to improve the wireless range of devices, making it even easier and faster to stream and download large files or videos.

The S4 should also come with a 13 megapixel camera, a big upgrade from the 8 megapixel camera than came with the Galaxy S3 - which was already widely praised by analysts.

One of the major features expected to be unveiled  will be the Atmel's new MaXTouch S controllers - which should allow users to interact with their devices without even touching the screen.
Others have also touted that the Galaxy S4 will be the first Galaxy S smartphone to feature wireless charging.

Hugo Chavez Venezuelan President dies

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- President Hugo Chavez, the fiery populist who declared a socialist revolution in Venezuela, crusaded against US influence and championed a leftist revival across Latin America, died Tuesday at age 58 after a nearly two-year bout with cancer.
Vice President Nicolas Maduro, surrounded by other government officials, announced the death in a national television broadcast. He said Chavez died at 4:25 pm local time.
During more than 14 years in office, Chavez routinely challenged the status quo at home and internationally. He polarized Venezuelans with his confrontational and domineering style, yet was also a masterful communicator and strategist who tapped into Venezuelan nationalism to win broad support, particularly among the poor.
Chavez repeatedly proved himself a political survivor. As an army paratroop commander, he led a failed coup in 1992, then was pardoned and elected president in 1998. He survived a coup against his own presidency in 2002 and won re-election two more times.
The burly president electrified crowds with his booming voice, often wearing the bright red of his United Socialist Party of Venezuela or the fatigues and red beret of his army days. Before his struggle with cancer, he appeared on television almost daily, talking for hours at a time and often breaking into song of philosophical discourse.

Chavez used his country's vast oil wealth to launch social programs that include state-run food markets, new public housing, free health clinics and education programs. Poverty declined during Chavez's presidency amid a historic boom in oil earnings, but critics said he failed to use the windfall of hundreds of billions of dollars to develop the country's economy.
Inflation soared and the homicide rate rose to among the highest in the world.
Chavez underwent surgery in Cuba in June 2011 to remove what he said was a baseball-size tumor from his pelvic region, and the cancer returned repeatedly over the next 18 months despite more surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He kept secret key details of his illness, including the type of cancer and the precise location of the tumors.
"El Comandante," as he was known, stayed in touch with the Venezuelan people during his treatment via Twitter and phone calls broadcast on television, but even those messages dropped off as his health deteriorated.
Two months after his last re-election in October, Chavez returned to Cuba again for cancer surgery, blowing a kiss to his country as he boarded the plane. He was never seen again in public.

After a 10-week absence marked by opposition protests over the lack of information about the president's health and growing unease among the president's "Chavista" supporters, the government released photographs of Chavez on February 15 and three days later announced that the president had returned to Venezuela to be treated at a military hospital in Caracas.
Throughout his presidency, Chavez said he hoped to fulfill Bolivar's unrealized dream of uniting South America.

He was also inspired by Cuban leader Fidel Castro and took on the aging revolutionary's role as Washington's chief antagonist in the Western Hemisphere after Castro relinquished the presidency to his brother Raul in 2006.
Supporters saw Chavez as the latest in a colourful line of revolutionary legends, from Castro to Argentine-born Ernesto "Che" Guevara. Chavez nurtured that cult of personality, and even as he stayed out of sight for long stretches fighting cancer, his out-sized image appeared on buildings and billboard throughout Venezuela. The airwaves boomed with his baritone mantra: "I am a nation." Supporters carried posters and wore masks of his eyes, chanting, "I am Chavez."
Chavez saw himself as a revolutionary and saviour of the poor.
"A revolution has arrived here," he declared in a 2009 speech. "No one can stop this revolution."
Chavez's social programs won him enduring support: Poverty rates declined from 50 percent at the beginning of his term in 1999 to 32 percent in the second half of 2011. But he also charmed his audience with sheer charisma and a flair for drama that played well for the cameras.

He ordered the sword of South American independence leader Simon Bolivar removed from Argentina's Central Bank to unsheathe at key moments. On television, he would lambast his opponents as "oligarchs," announce expropriations of companies and lecture Venezuelans about the glories of socialism. His performances included renditions of folk songs and impromptu odes to Chinese revolutionary Mao Zedong and 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.
Chavez carried his in-your-face style to the world stage as well. In a 2006 speech to the U.N. General Assembly, he called President George W Bush the devil, saying the podium reeked of sulphur after Bush's address.
Critics saw Chavez as a typical Latin American caudillo, a strongman who ruled through force of personality and showed disdain for democratic rules. Chavez concentrated power in his hands with allies who dominated the congress and justices who controlled the Supreme Court.
He insisted all the while that Venezuela remained a vibrant democracy and denied trying to restrict free speech. But some opponents faced criminal charges and were driven into exile.
While Chavez trumpeted plans for communes and an egalitarian society, his soaring rhetoric regularly conflicted with reality. Despite government seizures of companies and farmland, the balance between Venezuela's public and private sectors changed little during his presidency.

And even as the poor saw their incomes rise, those gains were blunted while the country's currency weakened amid economic controls.
Nonetheless, Chavez maintained a core of supporters who stayed loyal to their "comandante" until the end.
"Chavez masterfully exploits the disenchantment of people who feel excluded ... and he feeds on controversy whenever he can," Cristina Marcano and Alberto Barrera Tyszka wrote in their book "Hugo Chavez: The Definitive Biography of Venezuela's Controversial President."
Hugo Rafael Chavez Frias was born on July 28, 1954, in the rural town of Sabaneta in Venezuela's western plains. He was the son of schoolteacher parents and the second of six brothers.
Chavez was a fine baseball player and hoped he might one day pitch in the US major leagues. When he joined the military at age 17, he aimed to keep honing his baseball skills in the capital.

But the young soldier immersed himself in the history of Bolivar and other Venezuelan heroes who had overthrown Spanish rule, and his political ideas began to take shape.
Chavez burst into public view in 1992 as a paratroop commander leading a military rebellion that brought tanks to the presidential palace. When the coup collapsed, Chavez was allowed to make a televised statement in which he declared that his movement had failed "for now." The speech, and those two defiant words, launched his career, searing his image into the memory of Venezuelans.

He and other coup prisoners were released in 1994, and President Rafael Caldera dropped the charges against them.
Chavez then organized a new political party and ran for president four years later, vowing to shatter Venezuela's traditional two-party system. At age 44, he became the country's youngest president in four decades of democracy with 56 percent of the vote.

Chavez was re-elected in 2000 in an election called under a new constitution drafted by his allies. His increasingly confrontational style and close ties to Cuba, however, disenchanted many of the middle-class supporters who had voted for him. The next several years saw bold but failed attempts by opponents to dislodge him from power.
In 2002, he survived a short-lived coup, which began after a large anti-Chavez street protest ended in.

Why Teenagers Should Not Be Involved In Sexual Activities

According to Oxford Concise English Dictionary, a teenager is an individual ranging from ages 13-19 years. Such individuals would not be caretakers of themselves but instead, would rely on parents or guardians to facilitate their daily needs.

Being inexperienced and having little or no knowledge about sexual intercourse puts these teenagers at risk of contracting sexual transmitted infections (STI’s) and sexual transmitted diseases (STD’s). Luckily sexually transmitted infections and some diseases can be cured. On the other hand, some of these diseases are life long thorns in one’s flesh and are highly stigmatized, being an outcast of society and putting shame on family members.   
Sexual activities practiced by teenagers can bring about many risk factors which can be highly contagious. Some of these factors may include; stress, which can be a distraction in one’s young mind. Another can be the addition towards wanting to have sex very often, as hormones are enticed by these actions whereas if not controlled properly can causes great damage.

A teenage girl involved in sexual practices in an unaware conscience can become impregnated which can also be classified as unwanted pregnancy. This is not needed by teenagers as becoming a mother thus early at times, dismantles or holds back such individual of pursuing their goals in life in the concentrated pattern which was layout for them.

Sexual practices in teenagers are not only referred to girls but boys as well. Teenage boys indulging in these behavior at times suffer from, anxiety, peer pressure and loss of integrity. A young teenage boy should not be indulging in such activity as receiving the invaluable results are not beneficial to them, even to the point of getting a young girl pregnant. This only incorporates the possibility of him becoming that conducive and productive man within society thus decreasing the rate of progressive men within the society.

So, teenagers are to be more vigilant, assertive and determined to avoid sexual activities as such practice is not beneficial to any teenager. This can be done with the help of concerned and aspiring parents/guardians who portrays the capabilities to instill the right values and attitudes within their teenage child/children in advancing responsible young men and women.
It thus requires a good communication channel between parents and children in acquiring great success.

One of the aims that could be instilled within a teenager is: “Abstinence makes sense”. This is a quote that is meaningful to any teenager as indulging in sexual practices too early can affect them in the future in a steep way.

Teenagers overall, need to understand and realized that sex is not all, and that they have a long future ahead of them, and it is up to them to start making and working towards building a conservative and constructive future. This can only be done by hard work, dedication, confidence, self esteem, pride and most of all integrity.

Therefore abstaining from sexual activities can empower teenagers to work hard towards their aspired dreams and build a concrete reputation which states; “Education is a must”.

Mississippi Baby Born With HIV Cured

A baby born with the virus that causes AIDS appears to have been cured, scientists announced yesterday, describing the case of a child from Mississippi who is now two and a half and has been off medication for about a year with no signs of infection.
There's no guarantee the child will remain healthy, although sophisticated testing uncovered just traces of the virus' genetic material still lingering. If so, it would mark only the world's second reported cure.
Specialists say yesterday's announcement, at a major AIDS meeting in Atlanta, offers promising clues for efforts to eliminate HIV infection in children, especially in AIDS-plagued African countries where many babies are born with the virus.
"You could call this about as close to a cure, if not a cure, that we've seen," said Dr Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health, who is familiar with the findings.
A doctor gave this baby faster and stronger treatment than is usual, starting a three-drug infusion within 30 hours of birth. That was before tests confirmed the infant was infected and not just at risk from a mother whose HIV wasn't diagnosed until she was in labour.
"I just felt like this baby was at higher-than-normal risk, and deserved our best shot," Dr Hannah Gay, a paediatric HIV specialist at the University of Mississippi, said in an interview.
That fast action apparently knocked out the HIV in the baby's blood before it could form hideouts in the body. Those so-called reservoirs of dormant cells usually rapidly reinfect anyone who stops medication, said Dr Deborah Persaud of Johns Hopkins Children's Center. She led the investigation that deemed the child "functionally cured", meaning in long-term remission even if all traces of the virus haven't been completely eradicated.
