In the auction,there creeped in many surprises.
Dhoni 6cr
Ishant for a whoppin 3.8 cr. tat too for a player who has jus played one series.
Symonds for 5.6million.[Monkey effect i guess]
Ponting for a meagre 1.6 cr
Another big surprise was Mike Hussey[Mr.Cricket] whos known to be the best finisher went for only 1.4 cr whereas his brother who has never played in the internation arena went for 2.7 crores.
It was a jackpot for many indian players namely robin,rohit,kartik,I&Y Pathan,Parthiv etc etc.

Now all said and done , the main question is , Will the IPL live upto the expectations? Well we'll have to wait for another couple of months to get the answer for the question.

A BRITSH RESEARCHER J.MAXWELL DONELAN AND A PREFESSOR OF KINESIOLOGY at simon fraser university in british coloumbia have produced a device which can harness power from part of the stride by using a simple knee brace with cyborg bling.The generator works such that it disengages at the beginning of the step and re-engages as the legs swings bavk from the stride.
one device on each leg can Produce about 5 Watts of electricity,Dr donelan said,that is enough to charge 10 one can charge cell phones without charges using this device easily.
The power generated could be stored in a battery. The device will be highly useful for soldiers,who carry 30 pounds of batteries to run their high tech gear for a 24-hour mission. this has been a great break through in bio-mechanics.the energy stored in body fat is the equivalent of a battery that weighs more than a ton.

The knee- mounted device weighs almost 3.3 pound and it is in current form.
other efforts to tap power include shoe-mounted devices, from the bouncing motion of the backpack etc

AUSTRALIA vanquished srilanka at sydney for a 128 run win,and proved their dominance over srilanka.
micheal clarke slammed a fine knock of 77 to boost the australian total to 253.
It was nathan bracken who riddled through srilankan top order batsman claiming a 5 wicket haul for 47 runs.Kumar sangakkara was the top scorer for srilanka,his resplendant batting display took srilanka to a comfortable position,later bracken got a breakthrough in dismissing him to 42 tothrow the lankans to a position to 51 for 7 wickets.This is the main turning point of the match.
Jayasuriya and the skipper were dismissed for 7 and 6 by lee and johnson.
Jayawardene's tactics had been defensive from the start and there was no cordon in the third over when Hayden edged Chaminda Vaas to the vacant first-slip position.

That allowed the 65-run opening stand that Australia used as a platform for their solid effort.the srilankan bowlers also was found loose and they did not set themselves well to the pitch conditions,that even muralidaran unable to claim a wicket.all the other batsmen were sent to the pavillion with ease after few balls making up a total of 125.


A GREAT break through in medical science is that,researches have developed a good solution for spinal cord injuries i.e., to use the body's own nerves to bridge the gap in the spinal cord left by paralysing injuries.IT IS VERY ANALOGOUS TO A bypass surgery in the heart where veins are taken from patients leg are used to circumvent artery blockages.

Many researches have shown that nerves can be used to circumvent spinal damage and reconnect the brain to the body.the procedure worked well with rats,scientists now hope to use an injured person's own nerves to bridge the gap in the spinal cord left by paralysing injuries.however the scientists are coming up with many other methodologies, with is to be tests in various aspects and to be made better surrogate to spinal cord injuries.

The study, by researchers at Drexel and Northwestern universities, sets at rest debate on the subject creative problem-solvers have a distinct pattern of brain activity — even at rest — compared to CONVENTIONAL PROBLEM SOLVERS. Details of the study has been published in the journal Neuropsychologia.

As part of the study, participants first had their electroencephalograms (EEGs), which depict brain activity, recorded. They were made to solve a series of anagrams (scrambled letters that can be rearranged to form words). Anagrams can be solved by methodically trying out different letter combinations, or they can be solved with a sudden insight — an "Aha!" moment.

The participants were then divided into two groups — those who reported solving the problems by sudden insight, and those who reported solving problems methodically. Resting-state brain activity for these groups was later compared. The two groups displayed strikingly different patterns of brain activity during the resting period at the beginning of the experiment.

Creative solvers exhibited greater activity in several regions of the right hemisphere — the region where "remote" associations between elements of a problem are processed. Greater right-hemisphere activity even during a "resting" state suggests that even the spontaneous thought of creative individuals contains more remote associations.

Creative and methodical solvers also exhibited different activity in areas of the brain that process visual information. The pattern of "alpha" and "beta" brainwaves in creative solvers was consistent with diffuse rather than focussed visual attention. Thus random experiences may trigger remote associations to produce an "Aha!" moment in creative people.


The French today unveiled the world's fastest train title by accelerating a modified TGV to a white-knuckle 574.8km/h (356mph)

The previous record of 515km/h (320mph) was set in 1990, although a Japanese Maglev managed to reach a cool 581km/h (361mph) back in 2003.

The high-speed dash was made on a section of track between Paris and Strasbourg. The "V150" vehicle boasted "larger wheels than usual and the engine [pulled] three double-decker cars",and had already hit 559km/h in "unofficial trials", according to state rail outfit SNCF.President Nicolas Sarkozy helped to introduce the fastest train AGV, which stands for Automotrice Grande Vitesse, or High-Speed Railcar -- a bullet-train with a cruise speed of up to 360 kilometres per hour (210 mph).
Lighter than the TGV, it is also designed to be 98-percent recyclable.
SNCF and the train's manufacturer Alstom claim the record attempt represented "a test on the infrastructure in extreme conditions, which is impossible to carry out in the laboratory", although we suspect national pride may have played a part in it.

The AGV's innovative design is the motors fitted under each passenger carriage which constructors say slashes energy consumption by 15 percent and cuts maintenance costs.


Get behind the wheel of a supercar and you'll have to redefine your idea of a fast car.
On top of the fastest car class of 2006 is the 2006 Bugatti Veyron - an extreme machine with a top speed of more than 250 MPH
which we have featured in March. Here is a list of the other nine fastest cars based on the quickest acceleration time.

Most of the vehicles on this list achieve these out-of-the-world speeds through a marvelous combination of high engine power and low vehicle weight. Some heavy vehicles, such as the 4,299-pound Veyron, still maintain a high power-to-weight ratio due to their massive engine output - the Bugatti supercar's 8.0-litre W16 produces 1,001 HP, which works out to 4.3 lb/HP.

All of the vehicles mentioned here can vroom from stationary to 60 MPH in four seconds, or less.

Jet car: 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Rank: 1

0-to-60 MPH/0-to-100 kmh acceleration time: 2.5 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 4.3 lb/HP

Engine specs: 8.0-litre W16; 1,001 HP

Price: $1,357,000

The Veyron 16.4 could knock the leaves off of trees as it powers to top speeds faster than any other street-legal production car in the world. This is the most powerful and fastest car period. And it boasts of the maximum horsepower to prove it.

Just for perspective, this carbon-fiber- bodied, aerodynamic machine has about twice the power that of a Chevrolet Corvette Z06, or a Dodge Viper SRT 10. With a computer-controlled , seven-speed direct shift gearbox, sequential-manual transmission power is propelled into all four wheels. Because the 2006 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 was not adjusted by an aftermarket tuner, it is the first street-legal vehicle to come directly from the factory.

When the Veyron 16.4 reaches a speed higher than 137 MPH, hydraulics will lower the car to a minimal 3.5 inches above the road and a rear wing will deploy.Both the wing and the hydraulics are essential in order to generate enough aerodynamic down-force to keep the car from flying away at such extreme speed.

Cheetah on wheels: 2006 Saleen S7
Rank: 2

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 2.8 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 3.9 lb/HP

Engine specs: 7.0-litre V8; 750 HP

MSRP: $585,000

Barely missing the No. 1 spot by 0.3 seconds, the S7 is still a muscular cheetah on wheels. This hand-built supercar can even drive upside down! It will not only turn heads, but it will ruffle hair as the S7's turbocharged 750-HP engine roars to life. After receiving a 200-HP power boost in 2005, this lightweight sportscar can now outrace close competitors like the 2007 Lamborghini Murci?lago LP640.

The thunderous S7 is a two-seat, sans-airbags missile. It is race-inspired with a cockpit-like interior, allowing for snug sport seats that feel a bit cramped. The S7 is equipped with features such as a DVD player and a rearview video monitor to compensate for the lack of a large rear window.

Old war horse: 2006 Ford GT
Rank: 3

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.3 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 6.3 lb/HP

Engine specs: 5.4-litre V8; 550 HP

Price: $149,995

The Ford GT is an intimidating beast with an incredible acceleration time and a vintage racing look that is still completely modern. This vehicle marks the 40th anniversary of the original Ford GT race car beating the world's best in endurance racing at Le Mans in 1966.

The 2006 version is a unique reinterpretation of the original. A special Limited Edition exterior colour, Tungsten Grey, is offered to commemorate the 1966 victory. Similar to the 2005 Ford GT, the 2006 version boasts a 550-HP V8 engine, yet it shaved 0.4 seconds off its acceleration time. This car may be intended for the road, but it has race-like qualities, not unlike the original.

The GT will cease production in September this year and will soon be replaced by the Shelby GT500. This ultra-high-performa nce sports car is built on an aluminum space-frame chassis with super-plastic- formed aluminum body panels. The supercharged V8 engine produces 550 pound-feet of torque and the six-speed manual transmission delivers power to the rear wheels.

Italian bull: 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Rank: 4

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.4 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 5.7 lb/HP

Engine specs: 6.5-litre V12; 640 HP

Price: $350,000

Set to make an entry in India through Exclusive Motors, this sleek, mean machine - named after the fighting bull - is the newest evolution of the Lamborghini Murcielago, replacing last year's coupe. The massive V12 engine located behind the cockpit blasts this bull to 62 MPH in 3.4 seconds. This powerful beast looks like a futuristic version of the 2006, with a large spoiler underneath the aggressive front bumper and a redesigned rear diffuser.

This Italian supercar has a permanent all-wheel-drive system with electronic traction control. The LP640 has a six-speed manual transmission along with an electronically controlled adaptive suspension.

With the signature steel scissor doors, the LP640 also brags striking carbon-fiber body panels and a steel roof that is lined with quilted leather upholstery, as are the door inserts and seats.

Bomber, recharged: 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo
Rank: 5

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.4 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 7.3 lb/HP

Engine specs: 3.6-litre boxer-six; 480 HP

Price: $122,990

The new 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo is quick, but you have to add the optional Tiptronic S five-speed automatic transmission to make the car race to 60 MPH in 3.4 seconds. The 2007 model has a few style updates on the front and rear that make this sporty racer almost futuristic.

This sixth generation of the 911 models, the 2007 911 Turbo, has a new electronically controlled multidisc clutch, the standard six-speed manual transmission or the optional five-speed automatic transmission as well as an optional ceramic-composite brake system.

The 911 Turbo's 3.6-litre boxer-six engine produces 480 HP, which is 60 HP more than its predecessor, raising the output to an all-time high of 133 HP per litre. This engine's torque curve is even more impressive with peak torque rising to 457 pound-feet and spanning a range from 1,900 to 5,000 RPM.

Curious supercar: 2007 Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano
Rank: 6

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.7 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 6.0 lb/HP

Engine specs: 6.0-litre V12; 620 HP

Talk of Top 10 fastest and no mention of Ferrari? Not possible. However, a Ferrari figures only at No. 6. Taking the place of the 575M Maranello, the GTB Fiorano coupe has a mid-front V12 engine derived from the Enzo Ferrari supercar. With a top speed of 205 MPH, the six-speed manual transmission produces 620 HP. An all-aluminum construction technology encompasses the body and the chassis of the GTB.

This pure sports car is built similar to the 575M that it is replacing and is aerodynamic to reach extreme performance levels and can rocket from zero to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds. The exterior looks aggressive and elegant at the same time, making this Ferrari an exquisite vehicle.

Light, mean GM: 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Rank: 7

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.7 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 6.2 lb/HP

Engine specs: 7.0-litre V8; 505 HP

Price: $65,690

The exotic Chevrolet Corvette offers an even hotter variant, the Z06, which is the most affordable race-inspired car you could own. Coming in at No. 7 on our list, this car cannot be forgotten. The Z06 resembles the C6-R race car and is a "fastback" with a rear hatch, which makes it more aerodynamic, like a racing car.

The Z06's hand-built LS7 aluminum-block V8 engine contains racing-derived components such as an eight-quart dry-sump lubrication system and titanium connecting rods. This affordable muscle car also has a six-speed manual transmission and four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes. Weighing 49 pounds less than the standard Corvette coupe, the Z06 has a curb weight of 3,130 pound.

Classy act: 2006 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
Rank: 8

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.8 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 5.6 lb/HP

Engine specs: 5.5-litre V8; 671 HP

Price: $450,000

This year's McLaren has wings that fly it to a top speed of 200 MPH. With only 500 of these vehicles hand-built each year, they sell out very quickly. The 722 is an homage by Mercedes-Benz to the memorable victory won by British racing legend Stirling Moss and his co-driver Dennis Jenkinson in a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR at the Mille Miglia in 1955.

The SLR McLaren comes with a supercharged 5.5-litre V8 engine, dry-sump lubrication, carbon-fiber reinforced, lightweight ceramic brakes and a body shell and chassis that are fully made of high-strength carbon fiber, normally used only in racing cars. This Formula One-inspired racer has an arrow-shaped nose and a twin-fin front spoiler.

Speed demon: 2006 Dodge Viper SRT 10 Coupe
Rank: 9

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 3.8 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 6.9 lb/HP

Engine specs: 8.3-litre V10; 500 HP

Price: $86,995

This new companion to the SRT 10 Convertible has an 8.3-litre V10 engine that hisses out 500 HP and 525 pound-feet of torque. This hardtop version of the Viper has double bubbles for added headroom and carves a menacing profile.

Although the current-generation models are much improved in terms of ride and handling from the roadster that debuted in 1992, the Viper is still a lot to handle - especially at high speeds. Fortunately, the car's massive brake rotors (14 inches in diameter) with anti-lock capability do their part to scrub speed and add a measure of safety.

Turnaround specialist: 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider
Rank: 10

0-to-60 MPH acceleration time: 4.0 seconds

Power-to-weight ratio: 6.8 lb/HP

Engine specs: 4.3-litre V8; 490 HP

Price: $187,927

This exotic head-turner had a two-year-long waitlist before the first model arrived in the US in summer of 2005.One look at this luscious piece of art on wheels reveals why. The low-slung F430 convertible' s body was designed to be more curvaceous and aerodynamic than the 360 model that it replaced.

The F430 Spider comes with a metal-gated six-speed manual transmission; however, you can purchase the optional F1 transmission for an extra $10,740. This sequential-manual gearbox acts like a manual transmission, but doesn't require a clutch pedal or stick shift in order to change gears.

The F430 makes an appearance in the film Miami Vice.

Nokia definitely has the most interesting concept phones. Nokia 888 Communicator is a striking futuristic concept phone. The phone, which uses liquid batteries, speech recognition, flexible touchscreen and touch-sensitive body cover,is designed by Tamer Nakisci and won the Nokia Design Award

Nokia Aeon
Nokia Aeon was presented by Nokia on their website in the Research & Development section. What is so great about this phone is that it looks like it will actually go into production next February. Of course, its just a rumor, but still, makes us hope to actually see it someday in the GSM shop. All we know about it for now is that its a touchscreen phone and it looks fantastic.

Sky 'Sleak n Slim'
'Sleek & Slim' from SKY is another concept based on touchscreen technology. The phone has a discretely glowing touchpad, hideaway keys and generally utterly-fashionable minimalist design.

Benq-Siemes 'Snaked'
Benq designers thought of women too and presented Snaked. This is a 'reptile' looking phone, creepy somehow, but still is very cool. The Snaked is a fashion phone for sport loving women, because it also has body monitoring sensors to help the ladies keep those fine shapes.

What You See is What You Get Concept
One thing is for sure about this concept phonethey could've named it shorter. Designed by Pei-Hua Hang, the phone's name comes from the fact that this concept no longer uses an LCD as viewfinder for the digital camera, instead it uses a transparent frame. And of course, interaction is made through a touchscreen

Retroxis By Dark Label
If most phones presented here will never be sold in store for sure, the Retroxis concept phone from Dark Label looks kinda human, and makes us hope we'll be able to get one of these one day. Designed by Lim Sze Tat the phone is encased in high polished polycarbonate renowned for its lightweight and toughness and has an invisible OLED display that silently hides away when inactive.

Somehow similar to the Snaked concept, the NEC Tag is a flexible phone concept that can be , for example, hung from a belt or wrapped around the user's arm. Interesting is that the phone has shape-memorizing material and sensors that allows the phone to change its shape according to the mode.
