My Way News - Hawking Says Humans Must Go Into Space

My Way News - Hawking Says Humans Must Go Into Space

The survival of the human race depends on its ability to find new homes elsewhere in the universe because there's an increasing risk that a disaster will destroy the Earth, world-renowned scientist Stephen Hawking said Tuesday.

( take worth reading and giving a serious thought)

update at:

When answering a question about how he copes with frustration, which also mentioned a paralyzed accident victim Bun Tsai in Hong Kong who appealed publicly for legalized euthanasia, Hawking said, "The victim should have the right to end his life, if he wants.

"But I think it would be a great mistake. However bad life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. While there's life, there is hope." Hawking is in the best position to say so, his action of defeating physical difficulties has proved his word right.

google spreadsheet

there has be a lot of press attention to the realease of spreadsheet application by google, but i guess many of us don't know a much better, functional, online spreadsheet tool (with can be added on your google home page aka. google ig) by: IROWS

i find it more usable because:
- has lot more features, charting support!
- right click works as in OpenOffice (i do not use excel)
- it can save & read in OpenOffice format!, google can read and write only .xls and .csv format

but probably these features will get added into google spreadsheet with time.
