Dear friends
I received news about the recent tactic used to spike girls' drinks. It is a cheap and widely used method. This method was used in Canny Ong murder.
Rapist uses this method:
Coca-cola + ajinomoto/monosodium glutamate = a medicine which will cause drowsiness and excitement in the victim.This mixture is poisonous if used too often on the victim.
Please send this to all your female friends, sisters, & your loved ones

and ask them to beware.

DO NOT accept coca-cola or any other drinks from stranger / even if it is your friend that you are not very close with.

Current Listening

Jason Mraz - Bella Luna

"Bella Luna"

Mystery the moon
A hole in the sky
A supernatural nightlight
So full but often right
A pair of eyes a closin' one
A chosen child of golden sun
A marble dog that chases cars
To farthest reaches of the beach and far beyond into the swimming sea of stars

A cosmic fish they love to kiss
They're giving birth to constellation
No riffs and oh no reservation
If they should fall you get a wish or dedication
May I suggest you get the best
For nothing less than you and I
Let's take a chance as this romance is rising over before we lose the lighting
Oh bella bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do what you do
Do do do do do

You are an illuminating anchor
Of leagues to infinite number
Crashing waves and breaking thunder
Tiding the ebb and flows of hunger
You're dancing naked there for me
You expose all memory
You make the most of boundary
You're the ghost of royalty imposing love
You are the queen and king combining everything
Intertwining like a ring around the finger of a girl
I'm just a singer, you're the world
All I can bring ya
Is the language of a lover
Bella luna, my beautiful, beautiful moon
How you swoon me like no other

May I suggest you get the best
Of your wish may I insist
That no contest for little you or smaller I
A larger chance happened, all them they lie
On the rise, on the brink of our lives
Bella please
Bella you beautiful luna
Oh bella do what you do
Bella luna, my beautiful, beautiful moon
How you swoon me like no other, oh oh oh

How to Calculate BMI-Formula ?

What is BMI?

BMI (Body Mass Index) is used to approximate your percentage of body fat. It is also used to determine if your weight could be putting you at a higher risk for health problems.

How is BMI calculated?

BMI is calculated by taking your weight in kilograms and dividing by the square of your height in centimeters.

BMI = (weight in kg) / (height in m)2

Example: 70 kg, 175 cm (1.75 m) => 70 /(1.75)2 = 22.86

If you prefer English units then you can take your weight in pounds times 703 and divide this by the square of your height in inches.

BMI = (weight in lbs) * 703 / (height in inches)2

Example: 180 lbs, 5′ 10" (70") => 180 * 703 / (70)2 = 25.82

Benefits of Breakfast

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day."

You’ve heard that saying for years, but did you know it’s true? Research shows that eating breakfast helps kids grow up healthy and strong and do better in school.

A nutritious, well-balanced breakfast means kids won’t eat unhealthy snacks later in the day. They’ll concentrate better in class and go to the school nurse less frequently. Most importantly, they’ll start to develop the habit of eating a healthy breakfast—a habit that will help them throughout their lives.
