- Bing (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search) is a web search engine (advertised as a "decision engine") from Microsoft. Bing was unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on May 28, 2009 at the All Things Digital conference in San Diego. It went fully online on June 3, 2009, with a preview version released on June 1, 2009.
- Notable changes include the listing of search suggestions as queries
- are entered and a list of related searches (called "Explorer pane")
- based on semantic technology from Powerset that Microsoft purchased in 2008.
- On July 29, 2009, Microsoft and Yahoo! announced a deal in which Bing would power Yahoo! Search.
Health benefits of Cayenne Peper
- The purported health benefits of cayenne are almost too
- unbelieveable, but its reputation keeps growing among medical
- researchers as well as
- alternative health afficionados and deservedly so. It can do everything
- from kill cancer
- cells in the prostate, lungs, and pancreas to immediately stop a heart attack within 30 seconds.
- Let's get into some of the specifics of cayenne pepper benefits.
- Cayenne pepper (or cayanne pepper as it's sometimes spelled as)
- metabolism by immediately influencing the venous structure. It is
- nothing short of amazing with its effects on the circulatory system as
- it feeds
- the vital elements into the cell structure of capillaries, veins,
- arteries and helps adjust blood pressure to normal levels.
- Yes, cayenne pepper for high blood pressure is certainly one of its
- core uses, but cayenne cleans the arteries as well, helping to rid the
- body of the bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Considering that
- heart disease is the number one killer in America, this is significant.
- Cayenne is also great for the stomach and the intestinal tract. It
- stimulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and aids in assimilation and elimination. When taken internally, it warms the body and has even been used by some herbalist doctors to help heal and rebuild flesh due to frostbite.
Strata title property
- is a form of ownership in which a property
- owner owns their individual unit, plus a share of the common areas of
- the site, or “common property”. Residential, commercial, industrial and
- other types of buildings may be subdivided by way of a strata plan.
- Each development is managed by its own “strata corporation”,
- although some strata corporations may choose to hire a property manager.
- The owner of each strata lot has one vote in the strata corporation,
- and generally pays monthly maintenance fees to cover shared expenses
- related to common property and to provide for a contingency fund, used
- for repairs and maintenance of common property. The strata corporation
- can pass strata by-laws (building regulations), and must hold a general
- meeting of all owners at least once a year, when the annual budget is
- approved, the “strata council” is elected, and special resolutions, if
- requested, are voted on.
- The governing legislation regarding strata title property is the
- British Columbia Strata Property Act . The creation of strata
- title property does not always require City approval, as noted further
- is the taste of salt. An appetitive taste, it drives the consumption
- of salt. Salt suppresses bitterness, and is commonly
- added to chocolates, fruits and desserts to intensify their sweetness.
- is perceived by many to be unpleasant. An aversive taste, it helps prevent ingestion of toxic substances.
- The ability to detect bitter-tasting substances at low thresholds is
- considered to provide an important protective function because many
- toxins taste bitter.[2

- (from Greek: πάθος pathos "suffering, passion", and γἰγνομαι (γεν-)
- gignomai (gen-) "I give birth to") an infectious agent, or more commonly
- germ, is a biological agent that causes disease to its host.
- (also known as immunoglobulins, abbreviated Ig) are gamma globulin
- proteins that are found in blood or other bodily fluids of vertebrates,
- and are used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign
- objects, such as bacteria and viruses. They are typically made of basic
- structural units—each with two large heavy chains and two small light
- chains—to form, for example, monomers with one unit, dimers with two
- units or pentamers with five units. Antibodies are produced by a kind of
- white blood cell called a plasma cell.
- There are several different types of antibody heavy chains, and several
- different kinds of antibodies, which are grouped into different isotypes
- based on which heavy chain they possess. Five different antibody
- isotypes are known in mammals, which perform different roles, and help
- direct the appropriate immune response for each different type of
- foreign object they encounter.

- cases. Tics occur three to four times as often in boys as girls. Tics
- may affect as many as one-fourth of all children at some time.
- is considered as one of the most fascinating incense of
- Indian origin. It bears its importance since ancient days when the
- people used to burn incense woods on religious ceremony and prayers.
- Since then it has evolved along the generations and now is used globally
- due to its fragrance.
- So what’s exactly is Nagchampa, it is an aromatic blend of resins,
- gums, spices, flowers and oils with a wonderful after-aroma. It is

She is best known for her portrayals of Lucy Honeychurch in the film A Room with a View, Marla Singer in the film Fight Club, Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter film series, her Oscar-nominated performance as Kate Croy in The Wings of the Dove, her BAFTA-nominated performance as Enid Blyton in Enid, her Golden Globe-nominated performance as Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, as well as her other collaborations with Tim Burton, her domestic partner since 2001.
- is a thermodynamic property that is a measure of the energy not available for useful work in a thermodynamic process,
- such as in energy conversion devices, engines, or machines. Such
- devices can only be driven by convertible energy, and have a theoretical
- maximum efficiency when converting energy to work. During this work
- entropy accumulates in the system, but has to be removed by dissipation
- in the form of waste heat.
- The concept of entropy is defined by the second law of thermodynamics,
- which states that the entropy of a closed system always increases. Thus,
- entropy is also measure of the tendency of a process, such as a
- chemical reaction, to be entropically favored, or to proceed in a
- particular direction. It determines that thermal energy always flows
- spontaneously from regions of higher temperature to regions of lower
- temperature, in the form of heat.
- These processes reduce the state of order of the initial systems, and
- therefore entropy is an expression of disorder or randomness. This model
- is the basis of the microscopic interpretation of entropy in
- statistical mechanics describing the probability of the constituents of a
- thermodynamic system to be occupying accessible quantum mechanical
- states, a model directly related to the information entropy.
- Thermodynamic entropy has the dimension of energy divided by
- temperature, and a unit of joules per kelvin (J/K) in the International
- System of Units.
or windpipe, is a tube that connects the pharynx or larynx to the lungs, allowing the passage of air.
In human anatomy, the vertebral column
- (backbone or spine) is a column usually consisting of 24 articulating
- vertebrae,, and 9 fused vertebrae in the sacrum and the coccyx. It
- is situated in the dorsal aspect of the torso, separated by
- intervertebral discs. It houses and protects the spinal cord in its
- spinal canal.
- (Greek τετραποδη tetrapodē, equivalent to Latin quadruped,
- "four-footed") are vertebrate animals having four limbs. Amphibians,
- reptiles, birds, and mammals are all tetrapods, and even snakes and
- other limbless reptiles and amphibians are tetrapods by descent. The
- earliest tetrapods evolved from the lobe-finned fishes in the
- They are now a dominant part of the terrestrial fauna, representing all
- known larger land animals. Some groups have even returned to an aquatic
- existence, including the largest animal known, the blue whale.
- (adjectival form: pulmonary) is the essential respiration organ in many
- air-breathing animals, including most tetrapods, a few fish and a few
- snails. In mammals and the more complex life forms, the two lungs are
- located in the chest on either side of the heart. Their principal
- function is to transport oxygen from the atmosphere into the
- bloodstream, and to release carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into
- the atmosphere. This exchange of gases is accomplished in the mosaic of
- specialized cells that form millions of tiny, exceptionally thin-walled
- air sacs called alveoli.
- (chemical formula CO2) is a chemical compound composed of two oxygen
- atoms covalently bonded to a single carbon atom. It is a gas at
- standard temperature and pressure and exists in Earth's atmosphere in
- this state. CO2 is a trace gas comprising 0.039% of the atmosphere.
- As part of the carbon cycle known as photosynthesis, plants, algae, and
- cyanobacteria absorb carbon dioxide, sunlight, and water to produce
- carbohydrate energy for themselves and oxygen as a waste product. By
- contrast, during respiration they emit
- carbon dioxide, as do all other living things that depend either
- directly or indirectly on plants for food. Carbon dioxide is also
- generated as a by-product of combustion; emitted from volcanoes, hot
- springs, and geysers; and freed from carbonate rocks by dissolution.
is the set of chemical reactions that happen in living organisms to maintain life.
Carbon monoxide (CO)
- also called carbonous oxide, is a
- colorless, odorless and tasteless gas which is slightly lighter than
- air. It is highly toxic to humans and animals in higher quantities,
- although it is also produced in normal animal metabolism in low
- quantities, and is thought to have some normal biological functions.
- shinbone, or shankbone is the larger and stronger of the two bones in
- the leg below the knee in vertebrates (the other being the fibula), and
- connects the knee with the ankle bones. The tibia is named for the
- Greek aulos flute, also known as a tibia. It is commonly recognized as
- the strongest weight bearing bone in the body.
is a viral disease produced by the chicken pox virus. It is characterised by pain and a blistering rash that occurs along the nerves that have housed the dormant chicken pox virus since its last affects on an individual. When an individuals immune system can no longer fight the chicken pox virus, they develop shingles. You can not catch Shingles, however, you can catch chicken pox through direct contact with someone who has shingles. Most people who get shingles are old. It sometimes infects younger people, or people with a weak immune system. stress may lead to shingles. The disease starts with tingling, itchiness, or pain on an infected person's skin. After a few days, the disease causes a blistering rash. This rash may be on the trunk or face. The rash grows into small blisters filled with fluid. These blisters dry out and crust over for several days. The worst time of the rash causes anything from mild itching to extreme pain. The rash is confined to one region of the body. The shingles virus is contagious from person to person, though only by direct contact. If a person touches someone with shingles, they may get chickenpox, but not shingles. For this reason, persons with shingles are advised to limit contact with those who are not immune to chickenpox, those with increased susceptibility, young children and pregnant women. Contracting chickenpox when one is pregnant can be dangerous to the unborn child.
is a type of medication that is used to treat people with mood disorders including depression.

(pronounced /ˌsɛrəˈtoʊnɨn/) or 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter. Biochemically derived from tryptophan, serotonin is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, platelets, and in the central nervous system (CNS) of humans and animals. It is a well-known contributor to feelings of well-being; therefore it is also known as a happiness hormone.
Diazepam (pronounced /daɪˈæzɨpæm/), first marketed as Valium
(/ˈvæliəm/) by Hoffmann-La Roche, is a benzodiazepine derivative drug. It is commonly used for treating anxiety, insomnia, seizures including status epilepticus, muscle spasms, restless legs syndrome, alcohol withdrawal, benzodiazepine withdrawal and Ménière's disease.
(from Greek Ἀμνησία) is a condition in which memory is disturbed or lost.
Metaphysics is a branch of philosophy concerned with explaining the fundamental nature of being and the world, although the term is not easily defined. Traditionally, metaphysics attempts to answer two basic questions in the broadest possible terms:
- "What is there?" and
- "What is it like?"
- A person who studies metaphysics would be called either a metaphysicist or a metaphysician. The metaphysician attempts to clarify the fundamental notions by which people understand the world, including existence, the definition of Object (philosophy), Property (philosophy), space, time, causality, and possibility.
(July 10, 1895(1895-07-10) – March 29, 1982(1982-03-29)) was a 20th-century German composer, best known for his cantata Carmina Burana (1937). In addition to his career as a composer, Orff developed an influential method of music education for children.
