Animal hypnosis.

Watch this amazing video made by BBC Earth which shows animals being hypnotised. When in danger many animals fall into trance-like, catatonic state. The term hypnosis as we know it might be not exactly what these animals experience but I belive it's atleast close.

      Thing is I have no knowledge at all in this topic, so I would be thankfull if any of you could recommend something or give tips what to look for while searching for one.  I need it to mainly edit text and few of my websites.

That is all for now; need to finish installing all the software to be back later with fresh post.

One dollar bank robbery.

Exactly what the title says happened in North Carolina according to local news site. The unusual incident happened on Thursday 16th. James Verona came to RBC bank without a weapon but with note that said: “This is a bank robbery, please only give me one dollar.”; after he said that he will be sitting on the chair there waiting for police, and so he did.

Wondering what drove this 59 years old man to this desperate act? For sure it wasn't monetary reasons, but what then? The answer is really simple. Mr Verona don't have medical insurance and he has a growth of some sort on his chest, two ruptured disks and a problem with his left foot. He have no job so jail seemed as best opportunity for him to get free health care.

Kasperskys son possibly kidnapped

Ivan Kaspersky, 20-year-old son of a Russian programmer in charge of computer and network security Yevgeny Kaspersky, was probably kidnapped in Russia. The kidnappers demanded 3 million euros for release - said on Thursday the Russian media. According to the media Kaspersky Ivan was kidnapped Tuesday morning in the industrial area north-west of Moscow.

Eugene Kaspersky
The kidnappers made their demands in a telephone conversation with his father, who co-owns the company producing the well known computer and network security software "Kaspersky Lab". For now, Kasperskys spokesman did not confirm this information. How writes Interfax news agency the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs examines case.

The Russian edition of Forbes magazine estimated the fortune of Yevgeny Kaspersky at $800 million.

Computer and network security company "Kaspersky Lab" works with special services of Russia, the United States, European Union countries and China, providing them with information that can help prevent the theft on a large scale, as well as theft of confidential information. Besides, the company provides network security solutions together with computer security to business and home users


What about fuel?


Summer is comming so maybe some of will spend their holidays in Dubai. Don't hesitate to rent a car there. While browsing internet as usually I came across receipt containing gasoline price from gas station in there:

As you can see 27l (like 7,3 gallons) of gasoline costed 50AED which is around 13,5USD. From what I did read it happens that it still isn't cheapest gasoline price in the neibourhood as Dubai doesn't have its own oil reserves. To give you wieder point of view the same amount of gasoline in the states would cost you around 26,3USD.

When looking at prices like these I regret living in middle Europe where for 27l of fuel I would have to pay equivalent of 55USD; in my country where currencys purchase power is way lower.
