Decrease the noise of Internet Modem

Q:-I have an internet modem (Iím not sure which brand) and Iíd like to decrease the noise it makes when it dials out. I donít recall anything about this in the manual, but I canít check as Iíve now lost it. Iím running Windows 98.
A: There are a few possible solution to this problem, and they should work regardless of which OS you are running. Go to the control panel and start the Modems applet. Now choose you modem from the list displayed and choose properties. Check the modem Ďspeakerí setting for your modem, move the slider all the way to the left to disable the speaker, or one notch to the right for its lowest setting. You may also need to do this from the entries in your Dial-Up Networking, as the settings are stored separately for each dial-up profile. Finally, if this doesnít work you can try the manual approach: place a strip of tape over the modems speaker.

Very dear readers!
A very Happy Eid to you all, from me and the whole caring Contact Pakistan's team. I should not talk about illness or disease on this happy occasion, but happiness and our life goes together. but I pray, Allah The Great keep us healthy. Ameen. Letís begin with this editionís topic ďHyperopia (Farsightedness)Ē.
Many people say that, when I read or do activities in near, I cannot see clearly. This kind of problem is called farsightedness or in medical term, Hyperopia. Hyperopia occurs, when light enter in the eye and make focus behind the retina, not on the retina. This is caused by two reasons; one is that, maybe cornea of our eye is flatter than normal, and other reason is, maybe length of our eye is shorter than the normal eye. Young people with mild hyperopia are often able to see clearly because naturally they have ability to adjust their natural
lens, or can increase the eyeís focusing ability. As the age increases the eye gradually loses this ability to adjust its natural lens. If your glasses or contact lens prescription begins with plus numbers, like +2.50, then you are a farsighted person.
Signs and Symptoms
∑ Difficulty seeing up close
∑ Blurred distance vision (occurs with higher amounts of hyperopia)
∑ Eye fatigue while reading.
∑ Eye strain (headaches, pulling sensation, burning) or crossed eyes in children
Treatment: -
The treatment for hyperopia depends on several factors, such as the patientís age, activities, and occupation. Young patients may or may not require glasses or contact lenses, depending on their ability to compensate for their farsightedness with their natural focusing ability. Glasses or contact lenses are required for older patients. Doctors can accurate this problem with surgical procedure like CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) or LTK (Laser Thermal Keratoplasty). The main advantage of CK and LTK is that, surgeon do not use knives, laser or any other instruments to cut the tissues of cornea, they only use heat from radio frequency waves to change the shape of cornea.
Remember! Keep your eye checkups, regular to avoid all these problems,
and not to forget to ask Allah Almighty for ease; all your problems
and sickness will run away.

Eid Mubarak to all my readers, I hope you all have benefited from Ramadan and have emerged as better Muslims in one way or another.
Rose is a womanís best friend ! On this happy occasion of Eid, I am dedicating this article to all my female readers for they all possess the fragility and the beauty of Rose. Just as a Rose is the queen of all flowers, women are queens of their family kingdoms. Rose has a natural appeal to women. From being a symbol of love and appreciation, to a fragrant additive in sub continental cookery, to being a classic ingredient in extravagant perfumes, Rose is every where !
The finest Rose Essential Oil is obtained from the Bulgarian Damask Rose and is called Rosa Damascena or Rose Otto. Therapeutically, it is extremely valuable. It is safe, versatile and very effective. It has antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic, diuretic, detoxifying, antispasmodic and immune stimulating properties among many more. Its diffusion helps with asthma, bronchitis, coughs, morning/seasonal allergies, sore throats, airborne infections. It contains plant hormones that mimic the effect of human hormones, for this reason the topical application or usage in baths helps with problems like urinary tract/bladder infections, cystitis, irregular menstruation, heavy periods, PMS, menopausal symptoms, lazy ovaries, gastro-intestinal ulcers, palpitation, and poor circulation. Rose water compress helps relieve tired, swollen eyes and aids conjunctivitis. Rose Essential Oil also helps combat migraine attacks.

Beauty lies Inside You
Eid-ul-Fiter is just around the corner. Everyone wants to look smart and attractive on the day of Eid and there is nothing wrong in it as this is the day of celebration for the Muslims. It is good to pamper yourself once in a while something extra and what can be a better occasion than Eid. But one thing we must not forget is that real beauty is not dependent on outer appearance but the spirit that lies inside the body.
In the materialistic world of today beauty is praised to the extent of worship. Beautiful skin tone, dashing figure and sharp features are valued too much. These results in making most of those with absence of this physical beauty feel low and dejected. Although the major sufferers are females but a minor fraction of maleís population also suffer.
This depressive feeling can result in lack of confidence and inferiority complex. The remedy to this self created problem is not to become obsessed with your looks. Stay positive. Remember you are beautiful because you are unique. You cannot be like ABC model because you are not her or him. You are you and your beauty is because of your qualities. Realize your self-worth and look the world straight in its face. Beauty is not about make ups and hairstyles. More important aspect of beauty is your character and your soul. If you see someone blessed in something that you are not having, look to those who are blessed even lesser than you.  
There are some things that you can do to look beautiful. If you are obese, try to cut down your extra fat by regular exercise and cutting down some of the food intake. We like the way army men look like. Their walk, their getup makes heads turn and come people with remarks "So handsome! He must be from army". What is it that makes the men in uniform so attractive? Certainly more than their suit boot. Yes! It is their right posture Ö the stomach in, chest out, shoulders back and head straight technique. They have attained all this through hard physical training. The glow on your face and the sparkling teeth can do a lot good. Yes, keep clean and organize your life. Get up early and say your prayers. Pray five times regularly. Do not forget that if you clean your teeth in ablution (miswak) it would increase the reward of prayer many times. Have good feelings for every one. Try to help the needy. If someone breaks relation do not feel ashamed in lending your hand for rebuilding good relations. These good deeds will help you feel beautiful from inside and believe you me that this internal beauty is much more important than external beauty.
So for this Eid keep clean, spread internal beauty and enjoy!
