Credit card interest 'confusion'
Credit card in use
Which? has made a "supercomplaint" to the OFT
The consumer organisation Which? has demanded that the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) investigates the way credit cards charge interest.

Which? says the top 20 providers charge interest in 12 different ways, meaning a "lower" Annual Percentage Rate (APR) can be dearer than a "higher" one.

The APR is supposed to make it easier for consumers to compare credit deals.

Which? wants the OFT to standardise the system so that people can compare deals more accurately.

Interest-free

It found quoted rates of APR can vary according to whether interest is charged on interest, and whether there is an interest-free period.

Interest can also be charged from when the transaction is made, or when the transaction reaches the account.

The organisation is one of a handful of consumer groups which can make a "supercomplaint", which then forces the OFT to investigate.

India invited as observer at Arab League summit next week

India invited as observer at Arab League summit next week
NEW DELHI, March 23 (KUNA) -- India has been invited at the two-day Arab
League summit at Riyadh beginning March 28 as an observer and Minister of
State for External Affairs E Ahamed will represent India at the event.

"India enjoys the Observer status in the Arab League. Indias participation
underlines the policy of enhancing the effectiveness of its relations with the
Arab world. The participation in 2007 assumes significance in the light of the
recent developments concerning Palestine, where a new Palestine National
Unity Government has been formed. Indias traditional support to the
legitimate rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people is well-known,''
India's Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement in Delhi on Friday.

Indias relations with the Arab countries have found reflection in individual
Arab countries through extension of assistance for various developmental
projects in a variety of sectors.

Today, in a globalized world, new opportunities in the trade and investment
sectors are available, for which closer economic cooperation between India and
the Arab League is the future objective, the statement said.

Undelete plus - New Version - And Still Free

Undelete plus - New Version - And Still Free

8 Mar, 2007 Blogroll, Google, Technology

Undelete Plus has released a new version of their award winning
program and the good news is that it is still free for personal use.
Some of the features of Undelete are the ability of the software to:

* "Act as a quick and effective way to retrieve accidentally deleted files.
* To remove files from the Recycle Bin.
* To work within a DOS window.
* To work from a network drive.
* To work from Windows Explorer when the SHIFT key is held down."

Additionally, it works under Win 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003 operating
systems. One of the caveats the author makes is that it is highly
recommended that you defrag. your system often for best results.

Outside of that, I keep a copy of Undelete Plus as part of my tool kit
and it works very well. I highly recommend it and you still can't beat
the price. 100% free and guaranteed no spyware. What more can you ask
from a product.

Get your copy of Undelete Plus from here.

A man died and went to heaven, As he stood in front of St. Peter at
the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him.

He asked, " What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered," Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock.

Every time you lie, the hand on your clock will move."

"Oh," said the man, " Whose clock is that?" That's Mother Teresa's.

The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie."

"Incredible," said the man." And whose clock is that one?" St.Peter

responded,"That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice,
telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life."

"Where's Bush's clock?" asked the man.

"Bush's clock is in Jesus office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

Viagra in Liquid Form ? or for ---- liquid?

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Kurup K K

Subject: FW: Generic or ?

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two
names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of
Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called
Naproxen. Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called
Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic
name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government
experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name
of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin,
Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra
will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi
Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be
possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we
can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the
names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff
drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

Tought for the day: There is more money
being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's
research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly
population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no
recollection of what to do with them.

If you don't send this to five old friends right away there will be five fewer people laughing in the world

That which does not kill you...
Only serves to make you stronger.
