Hey Ed,
The issue that came out on March 28, 2014, was a good read. I highly enjoyed reading the cover story ‘My teenage years - lessons learnt’ by Sultan Abdul Haseeb. I have always known him through his amazing poems printed in the ‘Poets’ Corner’. Great work, bro! Also, I am loving the change that has occurred in ‘Poets’ Corner’. ‘Poems Forever’ section is getting interesting week by week. It has been quite some time since you guys arranged any competition. ....

7669_4_11_2014_1.gifTired studying the whole day, I climbed into the bed, ready to be drowned in the ocean of luxury and peace - sleep. The high –pitched sound of the alarm clock entered my ear, but the gate to my central nervous system was closed, so it passed out through the other ear. ....

Poetry as therapy
The word therapy comes from the Greek therapeia, meaning to cure through involvement in one of the expressive arts: dance, song, poetry or drama. Poetry as therapy uses the traditional techniques of poetry — rhythm, sound, metaphor, etc. — but the focus is the person writing. ....

7671_4_11_2014_1.gifWhy am I on the internet when I have a test tomorrow and should be sleeping—or studying? This question ranks high up there with the big ones, such as, “should I get smooth peanut butter, or chunky?” You can’t go wrong with the big ones, seriously. Mess it up and you have to face the consequences, such as waiting for the next trip to the grocery store.

So, how to answer this question. It doesn’t make any sense to lose sleep. Sleeping is an important part of the memory consolidation process. Meaning, the stuff you study is encoded in your long term memory when you sleep. ....

7672_4_11_2014_1.gifThe Indus River Dolphin (Platanista gangetica minor) is one of the five species of river cetaceans found in the Indus River in Pakistan and in Beas River in India. The Indus River dolphin, also known as Indus Blind Dolphin, is known as Bhulan in the Indus Basin. Barrages on the river are the main cause of its highly fragmented habitat. Protecting and conserving Indus River Dolphin in all river sections is of equal significance for likely survival of this species.

The Indus River dolphin has unique side swimming behaviour but its movement is difficult to observe due to muddy water of the Indus River. ....

7673_4_11_2014_1.gifDriving can be a lot of fun if we can be assured that the need for speed believers on roads are mindful of the safety of the other drivers on the road and have the courtesy not to play hard and fast with their fellow drivers’ rights like not overtaking them from the left and not drive the driver ahead crazy with incessant honking when the poor bloke stops at a red signal. Come on, people, we don’t have knight riders and can’t press turbo boost to jump over the cars ahead! Not in real life, so far! And, wouldn’t it be simply brilliant if drivers who need to take right turns remained in the right lane instead of cutting across from left, holding up the entire traffic behind? Hmm … yes, it does look like someone is daydreaming! Sigh! ....

Dear Guru,
I read your column every week with great interest. I am a shift supervisor in an oil company. I am a good worker and am eager to progress but the main problem which is hindering in my growth is English. Guru, I have poor communication skills and I know that if I want to grow professionally then I have to improve my English as our employers are foreigners and most of the time I have to correspond in English. All my other colleagues are well versed in English and I really feel embarrassed when I have to talk to them in English. ....

7676_4_11_2014_1.gifThe following conversation took place one morning between a wife and her husband. They were discussing government cost cuts that they recently heard about in the paper.

“Steve,” his wife said, while reading the newspaper, “it looks like our government is going to cut overhead and trim down the military forces. They are going to eliminate six over-aged destroyers.”

To which the husband replies, “Sorry to hear that, dear. I’m sure you’ll miss your mother being gone. ....
