Liver cells 'could beat diabetes'
Diabetes insulin injection

Scientists have turned adult liver cells into insulin-producing cells able to treat diabetes when transplanted into mice.
It is hoped the work will one day allow the use of a diabetes patient's own liver cells to treat their condition. At present there are limited supplies of donor cells for transplants, and patients run the risk of rejection. The study, by Israel's Sheba Medical Center, is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Severe shortage
Diabetes is a potentially life-threatening condition caused by the body's inability to control blood sugar levels. This is because cells in the pancreas are unable to produce the hormone insulin, either at all or in sufficient quantities. Recent developments have made it possible to transplant donor insulin-producing cells into diabetes patients to treat the condition. However, there is a severe shortage of donor tissue, and patients who do undergo surgery must take powerful drugs for the rest of their lives in order to prevent the new cells being rejected.
Blood sugar
The Sheba team hopes that their work will avoid the need to rely on donor cells - or controversial alternatives, such as the use of stem cells taken from foetal or embryonic tissue. They treated adult human liver cells with a factor that controls pancreas development in the embryo, called PDX-1. This stimulated the cells to behave in the same way as insulin-producing pancreatic cells. Not only did they start to produce the hormone, they began to secrete it in response to blood sugar levels. When the cells were transplanted into mice with symptoms of diabetes, the animals' blood sugar levels gradually decreased.
'Very exciting
Dr Angela Wilson, research director at the charity Diabetes UK, said: "Shortage of donor pancreases and the need to take anti-rejection drugs for life are two major problems currently limiting pancreatic islet cell transplantation as a treatment for diabetes. "This research is potentially very exciting. It could eventually lead to therapies that allow individuals with diabetes to be the donors of their own insulin-producing tissue. "However, it is very early days and we await the next stage with interest."

1. Worms Wiggle Into IM:
Instant messaging worms are on the rise. These new worms are also proving that once inside a corporate network they can be just as destructive, if not more so, than traditional e-mail attacks.
2. Reuters Shuts Down Messaging System To Fight Kelvir Worm:
Reuters Group brought its instant messaging system back online after fighting an outbreak of the Kelvir worm that forced the company to shut down the system for a day.

A new version of the Sober mass mailer worm is slithering through Europe in English and German. 
4. PHP Falls Down Security Hole:
Servers running PHP are vulnerable to a number of serious security exploits, including some that could allow an attacker to execute malicious code, as well as denial-of-service exploits, according to the PHP Group. 
5. Firefox Singed By Eight Security Holes: The Firefox Web browser has been updated to eliminate eight security flaws, six of which are also found in the older Mozilla suite. The vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to take over an affected system. 
6. SP2 Blocking Tool Expires On Windows XP: Microsoft stopped supporting a tool that let Automatic Updates users skip downloading Service Pack 2 while getting other critical updates. SP2 will be automatically installed as part of the update program.

Dear CP,
Other day I saw an ad in a local newspaper that Pakistani and Indian cricket teams are coming in June to KSA to play ODIs in Riyadh and Jeddah. It really excites me as it will be the first time that we will have international cricket in KSA. Is it possible for CP to give us more on this big event? Regards, Afzal Khan - Jeddah
Dear Bhai, Thanks for the email. Well as far as we know none of the national teams of Pakistan and India have any plan to visit or play in KSA. We have not seen the advertisement but we can assure you that if there is / are any matched then such matches will be of local teams consisting Pakistani and Indian players. Our team has checked the schedules of both national teams and there is nothing that show their precedence in KSA in June of this year. IOt would be wise to call the advertisers to check more on this.
Regards, CP.

How do I prevent programs like Yahoo Messenger automatically running whenever I start my computer?
This is a setting that is sometimes hidden away in instant message programmes.  In the Yahoo case, you will find it under File > Preferences, and it is in the first option on the screen, with a check box which you can un-tick to prevent the software loading unless you tell it to. There is somewhere else to check for other programs which you may not want to run as your computer boots. Go to your Start button, click on Programs, and look for the Startup folder. This will contain shortcuts to the software Windows runs when you power up. You can right-mouse-click on any of the entries to delete them.

 FRIENDS
Assalam-O-Aliakum
Dear young ones how are you and your school term going? Few days and then full two-month vacations!! Have a happy time.
Man is a social animal. A Latin proverb says, "Whosever is delighted in solitude is either a wild beast or god". It means that it is but natural for man to like company. In our society we all are dependent on each other in some way or the other. None of us can survive on his own. According to Aristotle, nobody would choose to live without friends even if he had all the other good thing.... friendship is one of the basic aspects of a society. Friendship is an asset almost necessary for living.
We have no choice in choosing our families. All of us are born into our families - but we do have choice in making friends. It is a choice that has to be made thoughtfully. W. Clement Stone says," Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them." This pithy saying sums up the importance of choosing good friends, the one who are pious and morally good, as your friends influence you so much that one day you become like them.
Since friendship is a relation that we form ourselves, therefore it is very fragile as compared to family ties. When a clash comes within a family, bitter feelings may come in each other's heart but the blood relation stays. In friendship it is not so. It is a very sensitive relation. Without affection, other relationships may still exist in name, but friendship does not. "Friendships are fragile things, and require as much handling as any other fragile and precious thing." ~Randolph S. Bourne
Sir Francis Bacon says that fruit of friendship is like pomegranate, full of many kernels. The merits of having good friends are numerous. Through friendship we gain support, both practical and emotional. The care and understanding developed with friends is an important contribution to our personal identities. Many a times, friends may not be helpful in giving us a solution to our problem. But by expressing our jumbled thoughts and relaxing our mind by just pouring out to friends, help make the picture clear for us. It is just like the stone that itself is blunt but helps to sharpen the knife.
The fragile relationship of friendship is highly based on trust and loyalty. It is said that a faithful friend is a strong defense; and he that hath found him hath found a treasure. So be sincere to your friends. As you move in life new friends will be formed and the circle of friends will expand. But don't forget the old ones as old is gold. How truly said, "Friendship is like money, easier made than kept."
So "Wear a smile and have friends"
Till next time...Allah Hafiz
