Cuts raise business hopes Todays News

Cuts raise business hopes Todays News

HOME loan customers are celebrating after the big banks passed on the Reserve Banks 0.25 per cent cut to official interest rates yesterday.

Three of the four major banks shrugged off recent tardiness to announce they would cut their standard variable home loans, after the RBA slashed the official rate to a record low 2.50 per cent.

The latest cut the eighth RBA reduction since November 2011 when the official rate was 4.50 per cent will deliver a monthly saving of $45 on the average $300,000 home loan.

Hopes were also raised by analysts predictions of a cut before the end of the year.

Premier Lara Giddings said it would give households the confidence to spend more and help to stimulate job creation.

Cutting interest rates is a proven way of stimulating the economy, Ms Giddings said.

The Housing Industry Association predicted the latest cut would kickstart a fledgling residential construction recovery.

HIA senior economist Shane Garrett said borrowers had enjoyed significant savings over the past 2 years.

On a $500,000 mortgage with 30year term, the monthly repayments have fallen from $3300 in January 2011 to $2679 today, Mr Garrett said.

Real Estate Institute of Tasmania president Adrian Kelly said the cut would boost confidence in the property market.

Our March quarter showed the largest increase in volume of sales for some time, so a reduction in interest rates will reinforce that, Mr Kelly said.

Australian Industry Group chief executive Innes Willox said he expected business confidence to rise.

Businesses will be looking for further falls in exchange rates to help lift competitiveness, Mr Willox said.

Master Builders Tasmania executive director Michael Kerschbaum said it was good news for people building or renovating and was hopeful of a boost to the subdued building approval figures of 201213.

harassment in lawsuit from former protege

harassment in lawsuit from former protege

The founder of Bikram yoga is a hopeless pervert who despises his wife and begs his flexy female followers to brush his hair, give him massages and have sex, a former student charges in a new lawsuit.

wife is such a bitch, you have no idea, ponytailed, Speedosporting Bikram Choudhury allegedly told prot Sarah Baughn in a bid to get her into bed. is terrible to me. She is so mean. You have to save me.

Baughn, a top Bikram teacher, respected yoga coach and model for Lululemon yoga clothing, made the claims in a sexharassment and discrimination suit filed this month in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Baughn, 29, claims Choudhury, 67, relentlessly pursued her for years and then sexually assaulted her and sabotaged her Bikram career after she refused to respond to the constant comeons.

The suit reveals a seemy, twisted side to Choudhury, who counts Madonna, George Clooney and Demi Moore among his followers.

Baughn, 29, said she was a freshfaced college sophomore when she started Bikram classes and quickly noticed something was amiss.

The yoga guru, the suit claims, would carefully check out his female students, choosing the most devoted brush his hair and massage his body. But Baughn loved the classes held in rooms heated to roughly 100 degrees and continued going.

Choudhury first propositioned her at a 2005 teachertraining seminar in LA, the suit claims.

He her as a favorite after class and insisted: know you from a past life. We have a connection. It is amazing. Should we make this a relationship?

Baughn was at the proposition and immediately told her boyfriend, according to court papers. She avoided Choudhury whose wife, Rajashree, helps run the yoga empire and continued her classes.

But the guru persisted.

At one point, Baughn suit alleges, he pushed the star student toward the floor after pulling her arm and leg apart and opening her body where he his body into hers and began whispering sexual things until she collapsed into sobs.

Choudhury even the outcome at a 2008 yoga competition so Baughn considered a shoein for first place came in second to a student who was sharing Choudhury hotel room, according to the lawsuit.

Choudhury, who was sued last year by another woman who said the guru routinely made sexually explicit and inappropriate remarks at teachertraining seminars, could not be reached for comment.

Human Skin

Human Skin

The skin or to use the correct term, cutaneous membrane is the largest organ in the human body. There are about two square metres of it covering an average adult and it accounts for about an eighth of the total body weight. Its the bodys first line of defence against a hostile environment, being waterproof from both directions and germproof. It also acts as a temperature control mechanism and the main access to one of the senses touch.There are two distinct parts of the skin, known as epidermis and the dermis and a third layer, the hypodermis or subcutaneous tissue, not strictly skin, but made up of fatty cells which lie below the skin.The bit we can see and touch is the epidermis. Most of the epidermis is made up of dead skin cells the living cells at the bottom of the epidermis rise to the surface of the skin, hardening, flattening, and eventually being shed providing us with the outermost layer of protection. Interestingly, dead skin cells constitute over 90% of house dust.The lower, living levels of the epidermis also contain melanin the pigment that gives skin its colour and protects it from the sun and a chemical compound called ergosterol that produces vitamin D in sunlight.The bottom layer of skin, the dermis, is richly supplied with blood vessels; this is the part of skin in which hair follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands, and nerve endings are located. The nerve endings are in ridges that push into the epidermis in a slightly different pattern in everybody. This is the reason behind unique fingerprints.There are two different types of sweat gland. The first, the eccrine glands, produce a salty liquid and these are located all over the skins surface. This is used as a temperature control mechanism, but the liquid is also slightly acidic, which is useful for keeping down bacteria that live naturally on the skin.The other type the apocrine glands are the ones responsible for body odour. These glands are only located in the armpits and genitals and secrete a mixture of protein and fat. The bacteria that live on the skins surface thrive on this and cause body odour. The apocrine glands only start to become active at puberty.The other type of gland found in the dermis are the sebaceous glands. These secrete an oily substance that keeps the epidermis waterproof and the hair supple.Problems, ProblemsThere are two basic reasons for things that go wrong with the skin environmental and genetic predisposition. For instance:The immune system has to be very active within the skin; it is the bodys first line of defence against germs. Sometimes the body will react to a threat that isnt there, or overreact to one that is. These types of reaction could lead to eczema or psoriasis.The sebaceous glands can clog up and become infected, bringing on an outbreak of acne.Central heating and excess cleansing can lead to dry skin. Conversely, a humid climate, hormones and over cleansing can give rise to excessively greasy skin.Everybody blushes occasionally, but in some the tiny blood vessels in the skin stay swollen and dilated, a condition called rosacia.If the outer layer of skin cells arent being shed normally, the build up can be seen with dandruff or psoriasis.Being constantly exposed to everything the environment can throw at it, including carcinogens, the skin can be susceptible to skin cancers.Of course, the skin is also vulnerable to attacks from other organisms, like a virus causing cold sores or warts, or fungus which causes athletes foot.There are also a lot of misconceptions and Old Wives Tales about the causes and cures of some skin problems. Luckily, most are now laughed at, but it wasnt so long ago that people thought that:Although we do have a much greater understanding of these problems now, some people with skin problems do still feel stigmatised, simply due to the high visibility of their condition. It would be unfair to say this stems purely from vanity; much is fear of other peoples reactions.The psychological effects of a skin condition on the sufferer can be grossly disproportionate to the amount of physical harm their condition causes. This can be especially problematical for children, when teasing can be a problem, and for teenagers, at a very sensitive time in their physical development. However, it is not confined to simply these age groups adults can suffer from psychological disorders and all age groups can suffer if theyre constantly loosing sleep because of constant itching.The skin can also be quite a reliable meter for gauging general health it can be quite obvious when someone is run down, tired or ill, just by looking at their skin. There is also the possibility that a skin problem could be the first symptom of another disease1, so its always worth getting a medical opinion of something that gives any cause for concern which can sometimes be a problem in its own right. People with skin problems are often unwilling to seek a doctor or dermatologists help, or reluctant to return if the first treatment prescribed fails to help, thinking that theres nothing that can be done, but often this couldnt be further from the truth.

Hawkmoths squeak their genitals at threatening bats

Hawkmoths squeak their genitals at threatening bats

The ultrasonic eeeee of scraping moth sex organs may serve as a lastsecond acoustic defense, says behavioral ecologist Jesse Barber of Boise State University in Idaho. In theory, the right squeak could jam bats targeting sonar, remind them of a noisy moth that tasted terrible or just startle them enough for the hawkmoth to escape.

Males of at least three hawkmoth species in Malaysia squeak in response to recorded echolocation sounds of the final swoop in a bat attack, Barber and Akito Kawahara of the University of Florida in Gainesville report July 3 in Biology Letters.

Female hawkmoths are hard to catch, but the few Barber and Kawahara have tested squeak too. Although theyre the same species as the males, they use their genitals in a different way to make ultrasound. Squeak power may have arisen during courtship and later proved useful during attacks.

Until now, researchers knew of only two insect groups that talk back to bats: some tiger moths and tiger beetles. Neither is closely related to hawkmoths, so Barber speculates that antibat noises might be widespread among insects.

Gigabyte GeForce GTXSuper Overclock Graphics Card Review

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 Super Overclock Graphics Card Review

We often use the term cooler in our reviews to denote the most efficient airbased cooling system that is capable of handling an overclocked CPU without producing much noise. But after our tests of the exquisite Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Toxic Edition we are now thinking whether we should introduce the term graphics card which would denote a product with unprecedented performance and unique features.

We think we really need such a term because weve got yet another graphics card that claims to be super. Its Gigabytes GeForce GTX 580 1.5GB SuperOverclock.

After browsing through the websites of the major graphics card makers, we can infer that the Gigabyte product is the fastest singleGPU graphics card available today and may remain such until the next generation of Nvidia and AMD GPUs. Were most excited to test it, so lets get started.

Closer Look at Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 SuperOverclock GVN580SO15I

Package and Accessories

The product packaging is eyecatching with the shiny words Over Clock on its front.

The graphics cards features are described on the back. Thats quite an interesting read, by the way. The external colorful wrapper envelops a cardboard box that contains the graphics card and its accessories.

The accessories include everything you need to use the product:

PATA 6pin PCIe power adapter;

PATA 8pin PCIe power adapter;

DVI DSub adapter;

1.8 m HDMI cable;

CD disk with drivers and utilities;Being a topend graphics card, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 580 SuperOverclock is quite expensive at $519. Besides the card and accessories this money buys you a 3year warranty. The card is manufactured in Taiwan.
