Quit Smoking Today! - World Tobacco Day - 31st May 2012

The Benefits of Quitting Smoking

What happens to your body when you quit smoking?

If you smoke, your body is constantly working to try and repair the damage done by regularly inhaling more than 4000 toxic chemicals. Every hour, day, week, month and year that you go without smoking, your health will improve. You will feel immediate benefits when you quit as your body starts to repair itself. Quitting at any age is beneficial and does not only increase life expectancy; it also improves quality of life.

After 8 hours:

* Nicotine will start to leave your body.
* Your heart rate and blood pressure will begin to return to normal.
* The level of oxygen in your blood will start to increase.

After 12 hours:

* There will be almost no nicotine remaining in your body.

After 24 hours:

* The level of carbon monoxide in your blood will have dropped dramatically.

* Your blood pressure level will return to normal.
* Your blood circulation will improve and blood will flow more easily to your hands and feet.

After 3 months:

* The cilia in your lungs will have recovered to efficiently clean your lungs and airways.

After 1 year:

*    Your risk of dying from coronary heart disease will be half that of a continuing smoker.

After 5 years:

* Your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat and esophagus will be half that of a continuing smoker.

After 10 years:

*    Your risk of lung cancer will be less than half that of a continuing smoker.

After 15 years:

Common Public Transport in OMR > SIPCOT IT PARK

We are extremely happy to share the below news article published in Times of India (Saturday, 26th May) about introduction of 3 MTC services to SIRUSERI IT PARK, fulfilling the long cherished idea of a Common Public Transport system to add to the convenience and comfort of all users who prefer to 'Go Green' and use a shared commutation model for their routine daily office travel.  After several rounds of discussions with representatives of various IT companies, NASSCOM in collaboration with MTC has finalized peak hour shuttle services from Madhya Kailash to SIPCOT Industrial Park in Siruseri.
The inaugural flag-off took place yesterday (Friday, 25th May 2012) at 7 am from Madhya Kailash, amidst the presence of Government, NASSCOM, Industry and Media representatives.
MTC will be operating in the routes as per the attached sheet (Subject to Change depending on patronage). These buses would also be useful to commuters wanting to get dropped at MRTS junctions as well. This will also reduce the dependency on share autos and ensure safe arrival at workplace.
We request all of you to kindly make use of this facility to its fullest advantage.

3 new MTC services to ply on IT Corridor
Chennai: Three new MTC bus routes were introduced between Madhya Kailash and Siruseri on Old Mahabalipuram Road (IT Corridor) on Friday.
   There will now be a bus every 15 minutes between 7am and 11am and between 5pm and 9pm for the benefit of the scores of commuters, mostly employees of IT companies, using the stretch. There are 200 buses operating along the stretch already.
   "Unlike many of the existing routes that cover the main road, buses on the new routes will ply through the interior areas where some companies are located. For example, about 4km after Navalur, buses on one of the new routes will turn right and go through areas where there are several IT companies," said a senior official.
   "No AC buses have been introduced as of now but we will look at the response for these buses and introduce AC services later," said the official.
   Representatives from the National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom) say that more than one lakh people are employed in nearly 100 companies along the stretch. "These new routes will result in many employees preferring MTC buses to their two-wheelers or cars. This will reduce the congestion and will facilitate better transport," said Nasscom regional director K Purushotham. Though the buses are not exclusive for IT employees, the timings have been tailor made for them. "There will be 100 trips in a day on these routes," said Purushotham.
   Arecent study done by the Institute for Transport and Development Policy showed that MTC and private buses occupied only 16% of the road but accounted for 63% of the commuters.
   MTC said ticket sales show that most commuters working in the IT Corridor travel there from Mylapore, Saidapet, Velachery and Thiruvanmiyur. There is considerable traffic on the road connecting Thoraipakkam and Chromepet as well.

FINALLY! New services are expected to reduce congestion on the road

Facebook tests 'pay to promote post' tool

Facebook has started testing a system that lets users pay to highlight or promote posts.

By paying a small fee users can ensure that information they post on the social network is more visible to friends, family and colleagues.

The tests are being carried out among the social network's users in New Zealand.

Facebook said the goal was to see if users were interested in paying to flag up their information.

Money maker

The tests of the "pay to promote" system were discovered by a Facebook user in Whangarei, reported New Zealand's news magazine Stuff.

At first, said Stuff, the user thought the offer to pay to promote a post was a con trick.

A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to the BBC the offer was genuine.

"We're constantly testing new features across the site," said the spokesperson. "This particular test is simply to gauge people's interest in this method of sharing with their friends."

Different methods of highlighting posts were being tested, said the spokesperson. These would see a range of charges being levied to make posts more visible. Comments on the tests suggest the highest price being charged was £1.25 ($2) while others cost 25p or 50p.

Payments could be made via credit card or PayPal.

The spokesperson said some of the methods it was trying out would incur a charge but others would highlight a post for free. The spokesperson would not be drawn on when the test would end or if it would be tried in other territories.

"We're going to see a lot more ideas like this where they are testing out different ways to try to make money," said Ian Maude, internet analyst at Enders Analysis.

Both Facebook's imminent stock market flotation and a recent slowdown in revenue growth were helping to concentrate its attention on ways to make money, he said.

"In the last few years their overall revenue has grown much more quickly than their audience," he said. However, he said, that rapid growth had slowed in the last six months and had perhaps prompted it to experiment.

The flotation will add more pressure, said Mr Maude but he added that the way the stock would be split could lighten that burden a little as Mark Zuckerberg would be left 57% of the shares.

"He's always said he wants to make money to run the company not run the company to make money," said Mr Maude.
