30 seconds that could save your life!

The "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) campaign suggests that you store the word "ICE" in your cell phone address book, and enter the
number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency".

For more than one contact name ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.

In an emergency situation ambulance and hospital staff may then be able to find out who your next of kin are and be able to contact them.

Assuming of course that:
1) they know how to use your phone.
2) you keep you phone on your body
3) the phone is not damaged
4) you don't use a PIN number to secure access to your phone

This is a legitimate idea.

Whatever the drawbacks, carrying ICE information is a worthwhile effort.

No joke folks, at a Prison in Rwanda feces is converted into combustible "biogas," or methane gas. It has reduced by 60 percent the annual wood-fuel costs which would otherwise reach near $1 million. The biogas technology was developed at the Kigali Institute of Science, Technology and Management.

The Rwandan prison biogas facilities recently received an Ashden Award for sustainable energy. The award comes with a $50,000 prize. It is given by the Ashden Trust, a British charity organization that promotes green technologies.

Another story that the mainstream media has hardly covered: the good old USA has admitted to using gruesome napalm-like bombs in Iraq.

Sure, they call them "Mark 77 firebombs" but they are incendiary devices that look and function "remarkably similar" to napalm weapons.

In case you've forgotten, in 1980 the UN banned the use of napalm against civilians - after those pictures of a naked girl victim fleeing in Vietnam shocked the world.

America, which didn't ratify the treaty, is the only country in the world still using the weapon.

So first we find out that the US forces in Iraq used depleted uranium (DU) and now the son of napalm.

Does this come to a shock to you? It should. Do you find it hard to believe?

Don't take our word for it. Here are some links to news articles from :
