Blogging via an iPad

Hey, this is my first blog via an iPad. It is not a bad toy, rather cool and a lot easier to type on then a normal keyboard or a small phone. I think my brother will be jealous of me blogging on this device.

Sent from my iPad ;p

Another update

So it has been a long while since I last updated - work is amazingly busy so I don't get the chance to blog regularly. However, I might have some more time going forward in future to blog.

Since the start of 2010 a lot has happened. More recently the world cup has started, ships trying to break the siege of gaza, the tories and lib dems getting elected, an exciting premiership campaign and a lot more.

Anyway, England are playing tomorrow so hopefully will have more to blog about.

Israel police 'arrest Mossad spy on training exercise'

As mentioned in the story below - a Mossad agaent was arrested in Israel - planting a dummy car bomb...this shows that Israel actually trains to carry out extra judicial killings. Furthermore as Mossad is the spy agency for Israel and operates abroad - this shows their intent and that they are likely to plant the car bombs abroad. Surely if this happened in any non-Western country this would cause a media frenzy.

A trainee spy for Israel's secret service agency Mossad was arrested by Tel Aviv police while taking part in a training operation, media reports say.

The young trainee was spotted by a female passer-by as he planted a fake bomb under a vehicle in the city.

He was only able to persuade police he was a spy after being taken in by an officer for questioning on Monday.

The authorities have refused to comment on the story although Israeli media outlets have expressed their surprise.

'Just a drill'

Mossad does not tell local uniformed police about its training exercises.

The country's commercial Channel 10 said it hoped the agency's operatives were "more effective abroad", AFP news agency reported.

Niva Ben-Harush, the woman who reported the novice's suspicious behaviour to police, told Ynet News that 15 minutes after she made the call, Tel Aviv's port was closed and people evacuated.

She said police initially asked her to come with them and identify the suspect.

"But after a few minutes, they told me it was just a drill," she said.

Up to three agency employees were believed to have been suspended following the incident, Ynet reported.

It quoted the prime minister's office as saying it did "not respond to information about such activities undertaken by security agencies or attributed to them".

Enemy Combatant by Moazzam Begg

Just read this book last weekend, and it is a good read, about how a man from Birmingham was locked up in Guantanamo Bay. Reading through the book, it is quite sad how he misses his family, but it also gives a good insight into the "war on terror". He mentions both good and bad aspects of his captures and the guards that were looking after him - some nicer and more humane than others. I read it within two days - it was that much of an engrossing read.

Is your life average

There is a new website called my life is average, which shows just how average people's lives are.

Reason I posted are for these following quotes:
Today, I paid $22.22 to fill up my gas tank. I got back in my car to notice I had driven 222.2 miles. I was thoroughly excited by this. MLIA

Today, I was vacuuming and a mosquito was flying around me. Instead of killing it normally, I sucked it up with the vacuum. I felt powerful. MLIA

Today, I was sad about Michael Jackson's death. So I looked up all his songs and downloaded them illegally, but I didn't feel bad cause he doesn't need the money anymore. MLIA.

Today, I decided it would be okay to wear the same clothes I wore yesterday because I will be hanging out with different people. MLIA

Today, I watched a really scary movie before going to bed. When it was done, I went upstairs and ran down the hallway as fast as I could before any monsters could kill me. I made it to my room safely. MLIA.

Today, I opened the fridge. There was nothing I wanted to eat in there. After 15 minutes, I opened it again. There still wasn't anything I wanted to eat in there. MLIA

Update again

Yes, been a while but I have nearly finished studying.  So what has happened since I last blogged away in Feb 09?  Well the main thing after finishing study that has been affecting my life is athelete's foot.  It makes your skin no nasty, so I am using something called daktarin aktiv to get rid of it.  Politics wise, London voted for the Eu candidate, so here is hoping the BNP don't get in.  I voted for an independent this year...mainly because she was from Insead, a well renound business school.  On the negative side she did work for a bank.

Pizza Hut

OK, so I blogged a while ago about how good Subway was. Well now it is the turn of Pizza Hut. Their Pizza is OK, had dominos recently which is an eye opener, but Pizza Hut are OK. However, when you get a Pizza, 2 pieces of garlic bread a glass of diet coke all for £4 then it is excellent. And the Pizza was not just a small mini pizza, it was a good descent sized pizza that took up a whole plate and allowed you to have 4 good slices. Unfortunately this is only between 3 and 6 on weekdays which is not good for someone working, especially if you put in long hours, but considering the value it is excellent. For 2 people the price is £7.50 and for 4 people just a mere £14!!

So let me put this in perspective, that is £4 for a pizza, garlic bread and a drink eating in! So if you want to stay indoors someplace, instead of grabbing a small bite from a coffee shop and a drink, for the same price you can have a pizza!! Plus it is quieter. And awesome value. So instead of buying a Mcdonalds, having food from a supermarket and even a subway, you could go and buy a Pizza Hut meal. Kudos to Pizza hut for thinking of this, an excellent idea to try and get people in the store and rather than get no-one in whilst they have staff working, hopefully the cost of the pizza meal will offset this. So my next problem is to see if I can get to a hut near me to get a £4 pizza before 6!
