Watch TV Online Free

The last few days i have been googling to Watch Free TV online and i came up with this software called SOPCAST . SOPCAST is the acronym for Streaming over P2P. It is a Direct broadcast system that is based on P2P. Sopcast is by far the most popular Audio and Video streaming software compared to other players. So all you have to do is to download the Sopcast player and you are connected to the network. You can register an account if you want to or else you can connect anonymously.

Once you connect with your login all you have to do is click on channels menu. The channel menu displayes the Channels that are currently streaming. All you have to do is Double click on the channel and Hurray the video starts streaming. Go here >>>> http://sopcast.com/player/index.jsp
U will get this message box telling u to download the latest version of the software..... do it!
- Install the software and run it....
- Make sure your explorer is working correctly (you dont have to do anything if it browses normally)
- There is a login screen that comes up.... u can login in anonymously....
- Now, click on to the channels tab... u will see a list of available channels...... yeah, u click it, and the program should start working...
- It is not instantaneous, but it should start running in less than a minute (after buffering and things like that).... so be patient....
- Tadaaaa.... u are watching live sports events for free.... and dont complain about clarity, the language, the intermitent buffering.....and stuff like that.... It Is FREEE!!!

The best thing about this is that, the more people there are who use the software, the better the quality... so SHARE THE INFO GUYS!!! and if u are this really nice guy who has the means to setup a channel, u can when u want to....

There are other software like SOPCAST>>> for that refer to link in point #1 - PPLIVE, PPstream, TVU, TVKoo, QQLIVE are a few of them..... so u have a lot of choices... TVKoo is very user friendly, but not too popular....

other programs u can watch online - Cricket, F1, Tennis, Rugby Pool, WWF, sometimes - new English movies and actually the list is endless..... all u need is a little PATIENCE....

so watch away people..... and u mite wanna start learning Chinese, u ll have a lot more fun!!!!!

Blogger With Docs & Spreadsheets

I have been blogging on for about a year and half and all i have been doing was logging into blogger .com and signing up and then clicking on New post and then posting on a New post. Recently i noticed that google has added a new feature in which you can post your Daily posts using Google Docs & Spreadsheets.I have been using this New feature and found it quite useful. Well let me just give an Intro of who one can migrate from Posting in blogger to Posting using Google Docs & Spreadsheets

First if one notices that when you are posting a New post there is an Box in the right side . Click on the link Google Docs & Spreadsheets and you will migrate to the Docs & Spreadsheets page.

Once you click on the Link you will be taken on to the Google Docs & Spreadsheet Homepage and you are ready to publish your new post from Google Docs & Spreadsheets. Click on the New Document Icon and you get started off with publishing a New post. The advantage is that Google allows you to post your blog posts to different platforms like the popular-ones Wordpress,BlogWare, LiveJournal,

The most interesting features of it is that you

Better known as Internal link Bookmarks to different places within the document itself. There is even the facility of adding special character, Font support, Do Revisions, Allow collaborations.

Lie Detector - White Lies or True Lies

This thought of writing this article came up with the question Can there be some one who hasnt lied in their whole life. Thats a tough question.Why do people lie? For fun, situations arising or habitual liars. There is always a reason for lieing. Most of the lies are white having no hidden reasons just to make life easier. Inspite of all the Lie detectors people still surpass them for fortune, thrill etc. So its a still a myth.This article might give some interesting facts and you might feel guilty the next time some one is lieing to you... So think twice before going ahead.

The first thing one would notice would be the eyes. There is always a saying that you might be lieing but your eyes cant hide the truth. The very first thing that one tries to do is to avoid or make little eye contact indicating a sign of guiltiness.If you observe more carefully the eyes balls actually move to the left when you lie and when you want think about something the eyeballs move to the right. For example Lets see a simple situation of How we detect a Fake Smile or a Real smile?. A forced smile differs from a real smile in that it is done in a relaxed way with few physical contractions of the muscles in the face. A real smile generally involves a bit of teeth but a forced one will never be..

Second signwould be the person tries to change the topic. He will feel very uncomfortable with the current topic and tries to deviate from the topic. Symbols of scratching head, chest and anger indicate signs of guilt. Further one tries to avoid interaction and prefers Changing topics or moving out from the location. Finally the display of the emotion with an expression is delayed indicating a sign of lieing.

Human expressions are classifies into Macro and Micro patterns. Deceptive people follow certain behavioral patterns. These can be viewed from the most apparent (macro-patterns) to the almost imperceptible (micro-patterns). Lets not worry about macro patterns and talk about micro patterns. As we had discussed the micro patterns would be focusing away the eyes, avoiding eye contact, Face whitening, Face flushing etc. When someone gives a natural smile it involves a lot of involuntary facial or body Macro expressions indicating a sign of reality. When some one is trying to fake a smile there are Macro expressions but if one observes closely there are intial sign of micro expressions on the face for some seconds of time followed by the wide macro expressive smile. These signs are indications of fake and to mastering them would differentiate from a fake to reality.As once Ekman said "Deception will most always show up in the face as an inconsistency between the micro and macro expressions."

Hmmm How would life be if No one Lied?? Guess it would have been far more easier, But then how would you keep children from learning the truth about Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy
Just kidding.... Life Moves on

Warnings:
These opinions are of my own and be careful how often you use this with your friends. If you are always looking for lies, you may soon not have any friends.

Check out to determine a genuine smile from a fake one through recognizing these micro expressions: http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/mind/surveys/smiles/index.shtml

Newyork Masala Dosa

Are you a Newyorken, Are you Visiting Newyork, Do you Like Dosa,Idly, Vada, Uttapam? Do you like street food or do you want to try one?? do you want quality food and that too spicy one then head t0 "Dosa man of Newyork" at Washington Square Park,W. 4th St. at Sullivan St., New York NY 10014 Ph:917-710-2092,
Dosa Cart Timings: Mon-Fri 11 AM-4 PM

Perhaps he could be mis understood as veerappan but he is Thiru Kumar - Dosa Man of Newyork. He neither smuggles goods nor kidnap you for a ransom. He is always there giving you a broad smile. Here is a shot of Thiru cooking Dosa

For all those vegans here is the chance to taste Dosas in Newyork .Thiru’s specialties are varieties of dosa:A south Indian rice crepe—served with spicy sambar soup and coconut chutney. Dosa, however, is not the only thing Thiru provides. South Indian treats like adai, idly, vada, and utthapam are available, as well as a spicy roti curry. For something quick on the go, pre-made and delicious samosas ($1) roti rolls ($2) and veggie drumsticks ($1) work well. The best part is everything on the menu is under $5.

A bit of background about Thiru. He came to USA in 1995 after winning visa lottery from Srilanka and since then he has stayed in Newyork.He has been serving Dosas at Washington Avenue for the past 4 years. He was also placed 2nd in the Street vendor project in 2005. Thiru likes Rice, curry, and stuff. Roti, chapati, anything. American food, too--if it's vegan then I'll like it. If not, then I don't like it.
