cravings battle 'pointless'
to cut out all thoughts of your favourite,
fattening food may actually make you eat
more, claims research. Women
who tried to stop thinking about chocolate
ate 50% more than those who were encouraged
to talk about their cravings.
This "rebound" effect could also apply to
smokers, say the Hertfordshire University
authors in Appetite journal.
Experts at Weight Watchers said a "varied
diet" was the best way to lose weight. |
Dr James Erskine, who led the project,
recruited 134 students who were asked to
either suppress all thoughts about
chocolate, or talk about how much they liked
They were then asked to choose from two
brands of chocolate, believing that it was
this choice that was being recorded by the
However, the quantity they ate was recorded
Women who had tried to suppress their
cravings ate on average eight chocolates,
while those who had talked freely about it
Men did not show the same effect, with the
group told to talk about the snack eating
Dr Erskine said: "There is a lot of research
into the idea that when you suppress a
thought you end up thinking about it more.
"However, this the first concrete evidence
of how this works in relation to food
He said that the best advice to people
trying to cut down on a "sinful" food was to
try not to completely avoid or think about
Emma Hetherington, from Weight Watchers,
suggested that a balanced of different food
types was the best way to control weight.
She said: "The research is not a surprise to
"We know psychologically, if you set
yourself an unrealistic goal, such as 'I'll
never eat chocolate again' or 'I'll never
have a glass of wine', automatically that is
all you will think about."
Tiny chips flash
chips are used in MP3 players and digital
Electronics giant Samsung has shown off
what it claims is the world's most powerful
chip for use in memory cards.
The 64 gigabit (Gb) chips could be used
to make 128 gigabyte memory cards, commonly
used in MP3 players, capable of holding the
equivalent of 80 DVDs.
The chips are built using circuits with a
minimum feature size of just 30 billionths
of a metre (nanometre). Rival firm Toshiba
has said it is also working with similar
technology. Both firms will release products
Flash memory is a so-called non-volatile
computer memory, primarily used in memory
cards, USB drives and MP3 players.
Non-volatile memory retains information even
when there is no power to the device.
Samsung said there was currently "exploding
demand" for flash memory as a storage medium
in a range of applications. The new chips
are designed to be used in a specific type
of memory known as NAND flash. NAND is one
of two types of flash memory and offers
higher storage and faster speeds than the
cheaper NOR flash.
NOR is commonly used in low-end applications
where smaller memory capacity and slower
speeds are acceptable, such as in cheaper
mobile phone handsets.
Samsung has said that a single chip could be
used in an MP3 player capable of holding
18,000 songs. Combining 16 chips would allow
128GB devices, the company said, making
Flash a rival to hard drives. "This has the
biggest storage capacity of a single memory
chip ever developed in the world," Kwon
Hyosun of the firm told AFP. Toshiba
announced its plans to use 30nm technology
earlier this month.
"Our goal is to gain an edge over rivals by
supplying the most advanced chips before
anyone else," a spokeswoman for Toshiba said
at the time.
First ever in Pakistan and Contact Pakistan
community is proud to be partner in this "Sadaqa Jaria".

BUILD OUR NATION TOGETHER
You will be invited soon with all the details
we experienced that CP members offer to sponsor a project
but by the time we receive their requests, the projects are
already booked by other CP members in KSA.
If you are interested to sponsor a project which will cost
around Rs:20,000 per seminar then please send
an email to us now so we
book it for you.
You do not need to send money now
Note from Tahir Butt
This is something that I always wished we do for
our nation and cities.
Educating/helping parents and students in
selection of the right career or right
institution is very important. Many students
having degrees in IT and Business administration
do not find jobs in these fields?
So many children get education that perhaps is
not of their type or end of the day does not
really help getting them better jobs?
I am personally thankful to Eduvision
organization for partnering with Contact
Pakistan in these projects. I will book one for
my city "Sargodha" because I know how much it is
needed for the parents and students in my city.
I know WE MUST OFFER these seminars for
all the cities of Pakistan if possible but for
now the offer is only for the cities and towns
in Punjab and NWFP. The reason is very simple,
we are still calculating the cost and
identifying logistical issues if we have to
conduct a seminar, say in Karachi or Quetta.
We always like to bring you projects that are
cost effective and carry greater value for your
So please if you wish to sponsor a educational
seminar then please drop me a line. This way you
will be preferred to reserve a project for the
city of your choice.
For larger cities we may have multiple seminars.
Contact Pakistan will announce the projects once
our project plans are in place to share with you
and all arrangements are finalized.
Thank you so much.
May Allah SWT accept our good deeds and reward

We have to set a sort
of healthy & +ve competition among the residents of
various cities of KSA. Jeddah people are doing this
doing that, Riyadh people are doing that etc.
etc. Now Jeddah is going forward and Riyadh
community is looking in the mirror only.
We came across that there will be a fun fair at
Eid Night but was failed due to the lack of
community interest. Did we look that what are
those reasons that it was cancelled? Might the
program was set at the last days of Ramadan. it
should be published before Ramadan. or might every
body is committed to go MAKKAH or MADINAH. we have
to do something. please take my comments positive.
Dear Bhai, thank you so
much for your email. We like when community
members come forward and "Just say it". We
always remind our dear community members that
Contact Pakistan is a Community Driven
Community. Unless we all do not contribute then
nothing is possible. It was the same case with
Chand Raat event in Riyadh and Al Khobar.
Community was invited in time to book stalls /
booths in both cities. Now you tell me how we
could continue with the event when we had only 3
stalls in Riyadh and 1 in Jeddah. Not much fun
So dear bhai, we all have to play our part
making any event "Full House".

Think Before Your Speak
So are we all are back to routine after the Ramadan break?
Guess must be as it is more than two weeks time now.
Folks, as I mentioned last time, we shall consciously try to
keep up the good habits that we tried to keep in Ramadan.
Check on our tongue, was one of the things that the fasting
person had to ensure to be able to reap full rewards of
his/her fast. Choosing this topic for today, we will discuss
about the right use of our tongue…an organ that is vital for
The Prophet (PBUH) said, "When the son of Adam gets up in
the morning, all the limbs humble themselves before the
tongue and say: `Fear Allah for our sake because we are with
you: (i.e., we will be rewarded or punished as a result of
what you do) if you are straight, we will be straight; and
if you are crooked, we will become crooked.'''
Crookedness of the tongue, that is, the careless use of the
tongue can bring the whole body in trouble; and keeping the
tongue straight leads to keeping oneself safe from all kinds
of troubles and ordeals.
There are two ways to use tongue: to say good things or to
say bad things. In our daily routine, we observe a lot of
bad habits that are linked with tongue, such as backbiting,
gossiping, showing off (riya) with speech, boasting to
others, lying, mentioning the useless or immoral. Each of
these is a heinous habit in itself.
In we look around, we see that most people tend to be relax
about this issue. Islam forbids from saying bad things, but
sadly we observe many people saying things that displease
Allah such as backbiting, slandering and spreading rumors.
We all shall realize that we will be held accountable for
what we say.
You must be wondering how than shall we use our tongue…what
is its correct use. For this let us look at the way adopted
by the Holy Prophet (May Allah's mercy be upon him). The
sunnah of Prophet regarding speech is based on the following
hadith. Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet said:
“Whosoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, let him say
what is good or remain silent.” (Bukhari)
I'll end quoting a wise man
who once said, “I handle my tongue in the same manner
that I handle high explosives.”
