Worst Year for Ford

Ford on Thursday had the worst year in its 103-year history with a wider-than-expected fourth-quarter loss and said it would cut production this quarter and lose market share through September. The No. 2 US carmaker posted a fourth-quarter net loss of almost US$5.8 billion (£2.9 billion), or US$3.05 per share, on declining lorry sales and charges for employee buyouts. That compared to a loss of US$74 million, or 4 cents per share, a year ago. 
Ford's loss from continuing operations was US$1.10 a share, wider than the average Wall Street analyst expectation for a loss of 94 cents, according to Reuters Estimates. 
For the full year, Ford posted a record loss of US$12.7 billion, leaping past the company's previous record net loss of US$7.39 billion in 1992 when the industry was reeling from a recession in the US economy. 
Ford, like its Detroit-based rivals, was hit hard in 2006 as high gas prices and interest rates drove consumers away from the trucks and sport utility vehicles that had accounted for most of its sales and profits.

Russian teen jailed for stalking Duff

Judge Thomas Sokolov in Torrance Superior Court (south of Los Angeles) this week sentenced an 18 year-old Russian immigrant to four months imprisonment for stalking 19 year-old actress -singer Hilary Duff.

Duff and then-boyfriend, rock singer Joel Madden from Good Charlotte, had taken out restraining orders against the Russian late last year. But he was then arrested in November when a private investigator retained by Hilary Duff, alleged that the young Russian had threatened to kill her. Myaskovskiy was ordered to be held in Los Angeles County jail immediately after he pleaded no contest to the stalking charge. He was also sentenced to five years' probation.

Myspace music review : BLACK LIGHT BURNS

With members who’ve variously served in Limp Bizkit, Nine Inch Nails, and A Perfect Circle, Black Light Burns promises the worst aspects of all those. Happily, such is not the case, at least with “Cruel Melody,” which combines the tunefulness of A Perfect Circle with some of Trent Reznor’s more approachable moments, and “Animal,” a synth-driven track that wouldn’t be out of place on a recent Depeche Mode album. Actually, given the goth makeup the group seems fond of, a little more cacophony wouldn’t be unwelcome, but for now the commercial smarts on display point to a bright future.

A Rise in EBay’s Profit

EBay Inc's quarterly net profit rose 24 percent, aided by strength in its core auction business and international growth, and the company said 2007 earnings would be at the high end of analysts' forecasts. Shares surged 7.3 percent to US$32.20 in extended trade following the results, adding to a 4.8 percent rise in regular-session trading ahead of the report, when it was buoyed by a surge in Internet stocks and the broader US market. 
The company reported on Wednesday a rise in net income for the fourth quarter to US$346.5 million (£176 million), or 25 cents a share, from the year-earlier quarter's net income of US$279.2 million, or 20 cents a diluted share. 
Wall Street was looking for a fourth-quarter net profit, on average, of 22 cents per share, according to Reuters Estimates.
EBay said it expected first-quarter net revenue of US$1.67 billion to US$1.72 billion, squarely in the middle of current estimates. Analysts forecasts ranged from US$1.65 billion to US$1.75 billion for the quarter, according to Reuters Estimates. 
The company expects first-quarter diluted earnings per share, excluding one-time items, in a range of 28 cents to 30 cents. For the 2007 year, eBay said it expected revenue from US$7.05 billion to US$7.30 billion.

Idea of paid entries roils Wikipedia

Recently, a blogger revealed the fact that Microsoft had offered to pay him money to fix up certain ‘inaccuracies’ in content in technical articles printed in Wikipedia. This led to great controversy, with online slams and rebukes form several different quarters.
However, what makes it such a bad idea for Wikipedia to offer to pay someone to write something for the site? The problem, say experts, may be that not all writers would be able to adhere to ‘neutrality’, which can be the very basis for a good article. If the article is not neutral, then what good would it be, is the question being raised today.

Nintendo profits boosted by Wii

From the month of April, until December, the popular Japanese firm Nintendo has been amassing profits, in the main because of its freshly launched Wii games machine in November, and also its DS console. The firm Nintendo has supposedly been able to meet its targeted sales of 4 million units at the end of 2006. The Wii games console is in direct and stiff competition with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Sony's PlayStation 3, but according to Nintendo asset manager Yasuhink Hirakawa, the Wii is the true winner all the way, because the players can actually use the game unit like a ‘wand’.

EU stumbles on the low-carbon road

The European Commission wants to drop plans to enforce that emissions be changed on automobiles. The plan was for automakers to produce new cars that produced a quarter less carbon dioxide than normal cars.

This has caused a lot of concern for environmentalist.

Emissions and carbon dioxide from automobiles is believed to be one of the factors assisting the global warming effect.

The European Commission says that there should be better fuel such as biofuels and that will help the emissions on all of the cars. Environmentalists disagree. Environmentalist would like to see both better engines and better fuel.

Myspace music reviews : JUKE KARTEL

Five-piece band from Melbourne, Australia fancies itself a metal/alternative hybrid, but doesn’t really have the heavy chops to back up the claim. Still, Todd Burman and Dale Winters deliver some solid guitar work, more than ably backing up singer Toby Rand’s not-too-impressive pipes. With a more committed singer and a faster tempo, “Save Me” could be a Rob Zombie outtake. There’s nothing to get annoyed about here, but there’s nothing to get overly excited about either. Generic rock’s generic rock, whether it’s from Australia or the garage next door.

Games Review : FANTAVISION

Fantavision is one of PlayStation 2’s launching games. It is a puzzle game where the player has to catch flares of the same color in a particular sequence.

This game is very repetitious and somewhat boring. The same thing is done over and over again. It may appeal to some people, but there is no change in the scenery; and all the player does is rack up point after point by catching flares of the same color. There is no clearly defined goal in Fantavision.

This game may be appealing for younger children or for someone who is a new player on PlayStation 2.

Chinese in Romanian job protest

More than 400 Chinese women working in the textile industry in Romania went on strike after asking for higher pay and better living conditions.

These women are among the first legal workers to be employed in the country of Romania. Romania has suffered large shortages of workers in the garment industry because most people have sought work in Western Europe and have left Romania.

This strike will hurt the textile industry and the manager is blaming the Chinese employment agencies for enticing the workers to go on strike.

These women currently make the equivalent of regular Romanian salary.

The Broken West on myspace

Los Angeles-based five-piece rock group lists Spinal Tap, George Harrison and ‘70s rockers Unicorn as their main influences, but these ears detect more of a Replacements/Velvet Underground vibe, minus the Mats’ drunkenness and the VU’s sometimes wiggy lyrical content. Well crafted songs with plenty of hooks and an unexpectedly prominent organ result in a sound that should be welcomed by pop-loving tweens, their older siblings, and (maybe) even their parents. A band that with the right push could make something of itself.

Home game for star in Brisbane

Kate Hudson, sun-kissed star of Fools Gold, a movie being shot at Airlie Beach on Australia’s Far North Queensland coast, had a welcome day off yesterday.

Sharing time with hot and hunky co-star Matthew McConaughy, Kate who of course is the daughter of Hollywood comedienne Goldie Hawn, retreated to the familiar.

Kate hunkered down in her Platinum Suite at the Conrad Treasury glued to the Foxtel box for several hours to watch her footie team - the Indianapolis Colts - beat the New England Patriots.

Fools Gold is now shooting in Brisbane before moving south to film on the Gold Coast.

It’s smart not to eat red meat

Research from the University of Southampton, published in the British Medical Journal, suggests that vegetarians mature smarter than their carnivorous classmates.
The study, tracing the development of 8,000 people from birth to adulthood discovered that participants choosing a vegetarian diet had 5 more IQ points than average by the time they reached thirty years of age.
But is this the chicken or the egg?
Will not eating meat cause you to become smarter? Or do smart people avoid eating meat?
Mensa Australia CEO Trish Kennett says: “Smart people consider all aspects of life. It’s only logical that they spurn meat”.

Another year, another show.

Oh, the Golden Globes were on last week. Bummer!

Ok, so I don't care to watch. Why bother? Few of Tinseltown's big-screen produce is now original and we already know who the winners will be before they're announced - the ones attached to the movie with the biggest budget. No excitement there.

At times, we may take a peak, just in case someone trips on the staircase leading up to the stage, but celebrities are so concentrated on looking amazing that nobody trips. So where's the entertainment?

The only point of (slight) interest is the fashion parade. Which fashion designer is elected to dress the most celebrities and which gown will be elected by the critics as the best and the worst?

But then again, we little people can't afford to buy such gowns anyway. So why watch? Its masochism.
If you are really into hurting yourself, then you can also have a look through the World of Fashion blog and their Fashion Eras section.

Getting married the Shilpa way

Firstly, and in case you are not familiar with the name, Shilpa is one of the contestants in the UK's version of Celebrity Big Brother. I'm not a viewer, but I couldn't help myself this week, whatwith all the furore in the media, and had a peak. I couldn't care less for the events in the house, or the quarrels. They're just mindless morons talking to eachother. But did you get a glimpse of Shilpa's sarees? Aren't her sarees wonderful?

I've always loved sarees. They are so glamourous, feminine and stunning. Now imagine a white or peal-coloured saree, adorned with silver or golden threads on the tips. That would make a divine wedding dress, woudnd't it?

Unfortunately, its no longer original. Brides everywhere are making a dash to the local Indian tailor for saree-style wedding dresses because they make simply the most feminine gowns. And there's so many different materials to choose from that you're sure to cause astonishment.

Talk to your make up artist, and discuss all the wonderful accessories and style of jewellery that go with a saree. The choice is endless.

Adventurous start to 2007

At the beginning of the year I decided to do something radical. Its a tradition of mine to start the year doing something i'd not done before. Last year, I cut my hair short - it was radical, ok?

This year, I decided to participate in a package trip that promised me a radical weekend. And so it was. Me and my 8 fellow travellers, along with our 2 guides packed into 5 pick-ups and took off from Lisbon into the far north of Spain where we managed to do parapenting, camping, white-water rafting and trekking in 48 hours.

In between, we also did brunch at a local vineyard, drove deep into the Bragança forest to peak at the famous Portuguese wild horses in their natural habitat, tasted some of the best local cuisine, and all-in-all, delighted in fabulous companionship over a glass or two of Port each night as we sat by the fire.

I returned home knackered, with 10 new friends, and fully charged to take on 2007.

If you want to take on an adventurous weekend, I recommend you check out World Travels, where you have at your disposal a whole library of video clips for different destinations, including Mexico, Italy and Canada. Check them out.

A reason to blog

Portugal is in tatters. The street pavements aren't even apt for sheep to walk on. And yet, as we all complain to eachother in the cafes, nobody is taking any action.

Yesterday, I took another tumble. As always, i don't just fall. As i realise i'm about to land on my face again, I always strive to not fall. The results are always a spectacle, for everyone else of course. As I begin to fall, I offer a sad spectacle to all bystanders of what not to do when you trip. My arms fly up in all directions. My hair clumsily covers my eyes. My bag deposits lipstick and tampons on the pavement, and, inevitably I land on my face. 5 meters away from the place I tripped on in the first place. Skirt over my waist. Brown muck on my white shirt. One shoe lost forever.

I'm sick of being a local joke.


So I am taking action. I am blogging my discontent. (Sigh) And it feels good to be reporting this sad little episode in my life. I imagine opening my blog tomorrow and discoveringa hoarde of sympathetic comments from my readers. Of course, that's not likely. I am one in a billion bloggers on the web. I am not the best writer. And hell, I know I'm not that interesting.

But to me blogging isn't just about being read by millions. There are bloggers who have become famous for voicing a political opinion. There are others who have seen the limelight because of the eloquent way they describe the daily episodes of their regular lives. These bloggers are like the rest of us. People on the bus.

But your blog is your virtual diary for anything and everything you feel like letting others know about your life, dreams and fantasies. And one day, someone will read your blog. Like you or dislike you. It doesn't matter. Your blog is yours.

The $100 business plan


So webmasters won't make a run for one, but I predict a rush for the $100 laptop. Its something new, and we all love anything new. Kids will want one, and parents will want them to have one - or at least they should. Because, while a teen in Africa finds it hard to access quality education and information, teens in the West, who have it all, are growing into ripe old vegetables.

I believe the $100 laptop will give these young sofa-decorations something new to gawk at. Probably not powerful enough compete with the Sony's Playstation, but the built-in wireless and video conferencing tools are 2 of the enticers that come with this new wind-up gadget that is indeed an inspiring invention. Stay-tuned for the solar-powered laptop.

But like everything else in our world, it has everyone thinking up business plans and strategies on how to make their profit-share from this new venture, originally aimed at giving a better opportunity in life to those who have less of it.

And do you know what the biggest challenge in the project seems to be? Its not teaching young Africans to work with a computer. And its not building it either. The problem being faced by the project leaders is cutting supply-chain costs!

Doesn't this say it all about the world we live in?

Putin's very own orchard

The Russia-Belarus oil blockade has ended. And why has that worried European businesses so much? Well, Belarus is the 'middle-man' who delivers Russia's oil to our pipelines. And these regional tiffs have an outrageous effect on all European businesses.

And now its time to ponder. While so many began to rule out Putin as the type of powerful leader who could frighten us, Putin was quietly picking his apples in the European orchard. Russia has bought into some of the largest distributors in the smaller European states. And with this he holds the European economy in his hand.

Because there are 3 maybe 4 big players in Europe who may not be bought by Russia. But all the rest will sell their mothers for the right price.

A game of chance or skill

Is poker a game of chance? or is it a game of skill?
Some say its a game of chance. But their argument is based on the fact that the cards are shuffled. But from thereon, is it chance? or is it skill? Bluffing has been known to work rather well for some.

I ask because in recent days, a court in the UK ruled on a case that handed down a hefty fine to a club-owner for not having a license, as required by the Gaming Act, which stipulates that all games of chance. But such a license is not required for games of skill.

I'm interested in hearing some views. I stick to skill. So, as you consider, i invite you to check out and try your luck. I mean, skill.

Why Hire a Makeup Artist for your Wedding

Your wedding day is coming up and you are wondering if you should
hire a makeup
. You’ve found your dream dress and all the shoes and
accessories that go with it. You spent months planning your bridesmaids’ outfits
and all the details concerning the ceremony and reception. Do you
really want to spend the extra money to employ a professional makeup

Hiring someone to apply your wedding day makeup
will help complete your look. You spent a lot of time picking out that
dress and your accessories. Makeup artists are trained to not only find
colours that look good on you, but to find a look that compliments the
style of your dress. If your dress is romantic, for example, you may opt
