Susan Boyle reveals she has Asperger Syndrome

Scottish singer Susan Boyle has revealed she has been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome a form of autism. In an interview she told her relief at finally getting a “clearer understanding” of her condition. Boyle, 52, revealed she was misdiagnosed after complications at birth.She was told she had brain damage.

Boyle became a global sensation when she sang the Les Miserables number I Dreamed a Dream on TV contest Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. She has occasionally struggled with the pressures of fame, and was treated for nervous exhaustion soon after her stint on Britain’s Got Talent.

Amazon unveils delivery by drone plan

Here’s the latest scoop in the world of online shopping. Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled Amazon’s until now top-secret project that could change the way we shop forever.

The retail giant is working on a fleet of octocopters — aka drones — that promise a half-hour delivery of any product, for objects five pounds and under.

These electronic drones, which will leave from one of Amazon’s suburban fulfillment centers, are given exact GPS coordinates which signal it where to drop off the goods. Although Bezos pointed out that this fleet of electric copters has years of additional work ahead — the earliest it could be completed and approved by the FAA is 2015 — he said that in four to five years, this new method of delivery could likely be a part of the online shopping landscape. Could you imagine? You could literally buy and receive a new thing to wear while getting ready for work, if you wanted to.

If Amazon Air Prime, as the service will be called, sounds like it belongs in The Hunger Games, you’re not alone — it does seem a bit far-fetched, and while instant gratification is the ultimate goal in the digital world, it also seems a little risky, especially if you’re ordering high-end fashion items. Would you entrust an electric machine (without a human tracking it) to coast 10 miles through the air to your house before dropping off a designer handbag? What if there’s bad weather?

Amazon’s high-fashion offerings have steadily increased over the years, and although a number of online retailers like Net-A-Porter and Moda Operandi offer express same-day delivery with branded vehicles, it’s only to local markets, which gives Amazon — with distribution centers all over the country — a pointed advantage. Delivery of a desired item in 30 minutes or less is unheard of, and delivery trucks are far less green than Amazon’s proposed electric drones, but still, you can’t argue with the added security that comes with a real live person making sure your package arrives in one piece. Perhaps Amazon will have some sort of insurance plan in place.

Isn’t that amazing? 🙂

Apricot kernel: a cancer cure?

There are studies and debates about the medicinal value of apricot kernels. There are claims that it can cure cancer. But there are also evidence linking apricot seeds to small volumes of cyanide. Whichever is true, it is important to research and make a thorough study before relying on this so-called miracle cure.

Some info about apricot kernel.

The apricot kernel (Prunus armeniaca) is the soft part inside the seed of the apricot. It is said to be a good source of iron, potassium and phosphorus, and one of the best sources of vitamin B17 (also known as amygdalin and found in the seeds of fruits such as peaches, plums and apples). Also called “apricot almonds” or “bitter almonds”, apricot kernels originated in Armenia and are also native to Northern China, the Himalayan region and parts of Asia.
