Beijing's New Buddhist Academy; Burma's Resolve

Beijing is building a general Tibetan Buddhist Academy in Tibet. It's claimed to be the first of its kind but the real idea is to continue the process of wresting control of Buddhism from the lamas and into the hands of the "appalling old waxworks" in Beijing. One of the government's newspapers discusses it here.

The people of Burma have shown incredible resilience in the wake of cyclone Nargis, but more help is needed, says David Hockaday of Emergencies Adviser Burma (Myanmar) for Save the Children UK.

And a temple in Thailand is using old bottles to build, well, everything. It's a refuge from refuse, or rather, a refuge made of some people's refuse. They're using beer bottles een though monks are supposed to abstain.

people would find it hard typing even with two hands on the Eee PC but the point of having the device is to have a secondary notebook instead of lugging around a huge laptop. While the Eee PC may have all the basic laptop functions, and then some, it is still primarily for quick document editing, Internet browsing and chat. Nevertheless, there are still some advanced functions that it could do. One in particular is video editing. Using software such as SolveigMM AVI Trimmer and MPEG Streamclip, I was able to edit and convert videos on the Eee PC. However, there was a noticeable lag but it was not enough to cause concern. In fact, while I was splicing videos together, I was already uploading one of them to a media sharing site.大阪市 北区 賃貸
