The incidences of abuses and crimes involving the social networking site, Facebook, seem to be multiplying every month. Said a parsonage managing e-crime unit in Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom that crimes, especially for the ones involving communication, Facebook is just the method. While several cases of harassment were reported to use the site, a case of rape as well as murder showed the use of Facebook. A spokeswoman for the site said it was no surprise that it was being mentioned in reports of crimes, given its huge growth in users in the past 20 months. She said: ''With active monthly users rising from 100 million globally in August 2008 to more than 400 million globally in March 2010."
US does not want to see your underwear
An advertising campaign saying, 'Raise your Pants' is going on in the US, telling people to raise their level of respect by raising their pants. Pleading young people to not surrender control over their own image, a US state senator - Eric Adams, is currently set on encouraging people to pull their pants up. We need a similar campaign in the Valley as well seeing how particularly and (appallingly) low the jeans can sling while getting off microbuses.
On 27 March, 125 countries joined the green living campaign Earth Hour 2010 where people switched off their lights from 8.30 PM to 9.30 PM local time for the fight against climate change. Considering the number of hours of power cuts we endure, here in Nepal, if events like Earth Hour are of any relevance we must be the greatest 'energy-conservers' in the world. People across the world made comments like 'Candle-light dinner was fun' and 'we should do this again' on the Facebook event page.
