Accordingly, the Country Office of UNICEF in Sri Lanka informed the Foreign Ministry that the service of Ms Lisa Woods, a Communication Consultant who was fined by the Courts for being in possession of 80 mg of heroin was terminated. Consequently she left the country on 28th March 2008.
Ms Wood, a US national, had arrived in Sri Lanka on 5th March this year to work with the UNICEF on a 4-month assignment to assist the updating of the UNICEF website and to write donor reports.
Ms. Wood has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, of a private hospital in Colombo on 12th March as she was found unconscious in her Hotel. She was placed under arrest by the Police for the possession of heroin and produced before the Colombo Magistrate on 25th March.
In a statement Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “The Government appreciates the co-operation extended by UNICEF to the law enforcement authorities and for the immediate administrative measures taken against the officer.”
The statement further added, “The Government reiterates the need for international organizations to exercise due diligence when appointments are made with a view to ensuring the high standard of integrity and conduct of their staff. This will require a thorough assessment of the individual staff members including previous records, in order to satisfy that the staff member concerned possesses an unblemished record. Such measures would avoid any negative consequences on the concerned agencies by the personal conduct of its officials. “

A look at Microsoft's Security Response Center in Redmond
A good deal of Microsoft's current security practices can be traced to painful lessons learned over the past 10 years. Microsoft's Security Response Center, at company headquarters in Redmond, Wash., grew out of those lessons.
Shown here, a sign outside Microsoft's twin security "war rooms" marks the way. One room is for handling the technical work of bug hunting, while the other focuses on what to say to customers and the public. A door connects the two rooms.
Time zones can be tricky, as any developer who has tried to create a calendaring application for clients on opposite ends of the world can tell you. Unfortunately, the GetUserAvailability Web service method in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 is not immune to time zone–related issues. Let me give you an overview of the problem....
Mike Johnston of the great photography blog Luminous Landscape wants a new camera, and it does almost nothing but take pictures. He dubs this fantasy-cam the DMD (Decisive Moment Digital), and it is noteworthy as an antidote to the bell-and-whistle-fest that is the modern digicam.
Or, perhaps, its merely that they could sell them better today if they ran these ads now. As with anything, the nostalgic hankering is usually preferable to the thing being hankered after.
The Nubrella may as well be spelled N00b-rella for all the sex appeal it has. It's a hands-free brolly designed to not only keep your hair perfectly placed, but to protect your entire upper body from the elements.
This "umbrella of the 21st century" attaches via shoulder straps and has a stabilizing handle. Because it wraps around the torso, the $60 canopy won't catch the wind and turn inside out: the makers claim that it will withstand gusts of up to 50mph. What you should really watch out for, though, is the stones that will be thrown at you by gangs of laughing children.
Still, the company remains optimistic that this ridiculous device will become popular:
With its sleek futuristic oval design, nubrella will be seen as the new “must have” fashion accessory around the world.

Intel plans to bring its OLPC killer, the Classmate PC, to the US and Europe. With the Asus Eee PC and Everex's Cloudbook doing ever-so-well in the super cheap portable market, it's no surprise that Intel wants a piece of the action, too.
According to Reuters, "computer makers will start selling Intel-designed Classmate PCs in those markets for about $250 to $350". That leads us to believe that the machines will be made under license rather than by Intel itself. Are undeveloped nations becoming a test ground for new niche products in the developed world? We'll answer that when we see a Swarovski-encrusted Life Straw.
Google has joined the Unity consortium, which will build a $300 million fiber optic cable linking the US and Japan. The 7.68 Tbps, 10,000 kilometer (6,200 mile) will increase capacity for ever growing internet traffic between continents.
Google seems to be taking a keen interest in the infrastructure of the internet, first with the auction of the 700Mhz radio spectrum, and now undersea cables. And no wonder. The search giant needs always on, unfettered connectivity, and having to rely on tiered-internet happy ISPs for that connection is doubtless a big worry. Much better to control the whole shebang, end to end.
In the point-and-shoot market, one extra exposure mode is enough to justify a whole new model. So we congratulate Panasonic for bringing a genuinely rare feature to its new Lumix TZ50: WiFi. The 9.1MP camera has 50MB of on-board memory from which it will beam photographs over its 802.11b/g connection. These can be sent to a PC or directly to the web; specifically, Panasonic's own LUMIX CLUB PicMate site.

Super Internet TV uses Windows Media Player's decoding system to present the television and radio signals.

About the stations:
Just like a TV set, live Internet television depends on the origin and not on the software that displays the TV images. Some stations can be off line due to their servers' overload or Internet traffic jams. Not all stations have a 24 Hours schedule. The video quality is dependent on the broadcaster's own bandwidth; the higher the bandwidth, the better the video quality you will receive. For most TV and radio channels, a modem speed of 56Kb/s is required. For the broadband TV stations, you need 300 Kb/s.
Thousands of videos have been made available via applicable online portals such as YouTube, VideU, MyVideo, ClipFish and GoogleVideo. They offer amusing fun videos, film trailers, snippets of cult movies and serious documentations. However, on the Net there is frequently a view-only policy – download not possible.
This has now been changed by the Ashampoo ClipFisher. All you need to do is to copy a video’s current http:// address from the web browser and paste it into Ashampoo ClipFisher: immediately, the cunning tool will be flexing its download muscles and starting to transfer the film to your hard drive. In this way, compiling your own little (or big, for that matter) video library is no problem at all.

It has been estimated that although Microsoft Office 2007 contains more than 10,000 features, the average user is familiar with only about 150 of them.
That means that most people have left a whopping 98.5 percent of Office territory unexplored. In practical terms, it also means that most people aren’t taking advantage of the power of the Office suite. It means that most people work inefficiently by trying to make the techniques they know serve a wide range of situations, and it means that most people work ineffectively because they aren’t aware of techniques that could solve their problems and add sophistication to their documents.
Tricks of the Microsoft Office 2007 Gurus is designed to give you the information you need without making you wade through ponderous explanations and interminable technicalities. To make your life easier, this book includes various features and conventions that help you get the most out of the book.
