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
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
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
Signs and Symptoms
∑ Difficulty seeing up close
∑ Blurred distance vision (occurs with higher amounts of
∑ Eye fatigue while reading.
∑ Eye strain (headaches, pulling sensation, burning) or
crossed eyes in children
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
and not to forget to ask Allah Almighty for ease; all your
and sickness will run away.

AROMATHERAPYĖ NATURAL HEALING - ROSE
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. In the
arena of beauty and skin care, it helps with acne, mature,
wrinkled, dry or sensitive skin. Daily application of rose
essential oil, diluted in a carrier oil, helps revive aging
skin. The floral water of Rose is an excellent toner for all
skin types and is also very refreshing as an after-shave
splash. In psycho-aromatherapy, rose essential oil relieves
stress, anxiety, depression, grief, nervous tension, anger,
disappointment, panic, irritability, poor memory and insomnia.

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
So for this Eid keep clean, spread internal beauty and enjoy!
